Aldermen Vote Down Smoking Ban - Dave Ingram December 02, 2013
The board of aldermen in Philadelphia has voted down a proposal to ban smoking in commercial buildings inside the city limits. The proposed ordinance was considered at the request of Beverly Knox with the Mississippi Tobacco-Free Coalition, who told aldermen that similar ordinances were being adopted in cities across the state to create a healthy environment for residents. The ordinance would have banned smoking inside buildings and within 15-feet of the front doors. The Neshoba Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/IjNvug ) that the proposal failed on 3-2 vote. Opponents say they had concerns about telling business owners what they could or could not do in their own buildings and how it would be enforced.

Poulus says one fatality happened Saturday in Wilkinson County when 26-year-old Tarvis A. Bolden lost control of his vehicle and ran off the road. The other fatality was 16-year-old Joseph R. Grayson, who died from injuries sustained Sunday when his truck ran off the road in Jones County. Both accidents are under investigation.

Check Cashing Fraud - Dave Ingram December 02, 2013
A Winston County woman has pleaded not guilty to a two-count federal indictment in which she is accused of forging identification documents to assist with the cashing of a federal government check mailed to someone else. Federal court documents show 27-year-old Brenda Nunn of Louisville is scheduled for trial Jan. 13 in U.S. District Court in Oxford. Nunn was indicted Nov. 20. The indictment says two women contacted Nunn about working together to cash the check and split the proceeds. Court documents show the check was for $7,747 and arrived at one of the women's home. It was made out to a woman who no longer lived at the address.
The indictment says Nunn contacted a check cashing company to vouch for the identification and the woman cashed the check.
