COAHOMA — Area motorists traveling through this community, put away your smart phones and other electronic messaging devices. The city council has effectively banned texting and driving.

The first Crossroads community to join in what is becoming a statewide effort to stop motorists from texting while they are behind the wheel, the Coahoma City Council passed the measure during its July 26 meeting on a unanimous vote.

No surprise, county burn ban in effect

July 31, 2012

Howard County commissioners gave the go-ahead Monday morning to put a burn ban into effect, as local fire officials warn wildfire dangers are reaching critical levels with no immediate relief in sight.

Commissioners approved the county-wide ban — which will be in effect for 90 days, at the end of which the court will have the option to reinstate or dismiss the order — at the recommendation of Volunteer Fire Department Chief Tommy Sullivan.

According to Sullivan, the fire hazard in Howard County has reached extreme levels despite recent rains.
