New Ordinance: City of Moorhead



TO: MDCC Faculty, Staff and Students

FR: Dr. Edward Rice II, Vice President of Student Services

RE: New Ordinance: City of Moorhead

DATE: October 10, 2016


As faculty, staff and students of Mississippi Delta Community College, we should always show respect and kindness to our city neighbors in our daily interactions.

Gathering in front of homes adjacent to campus, however, is disruptive to our neighbors.

The city of Moorhead recently enacted an ordinance prohibiting loitering in public places within the corporate limits. This includes sidewalks in front of private homes.

Violation of this ordinance may result in a fine or arrest.

A smoking area is located within the gated area at the corner of Hwy. 3 and West Cherry Street.

A collaborative relationship between MDCC and the Moorhead community is very important to an overall quality of life for everyone involved.

Thank you in advance for understanding and following the city ordinance.

Defense led by Grayer and Stanley not enough to fend off Lions

SCOOBA – The Trojan defense racked up 38 tackles (unofficial stats) on the night, but it was not enough to push past the Lions of East Mississippi Community College as MDCC lost 73-7 Thursday night to move to 1-4 on the season and 0-3 in division play.

MDCC won the coin toss and deferred to the second half. The opening possession for the Lions was a six-play, 70-yard drive that resulted in a 1-yard touch down run by Isaiah Wright for EMCC to take a swift 7-0 lead with 13:26 left in the first quarter.

Freshmen quarterback Guy Myers would get his first career start under center Thursday night for the Trojans. His opening drive at the helm resulted in a Trojan punt after a run for a 1-yard loss and two incomplete passes.
