WIN Center open to assist job seekers
The Marshall/Benton County WIN Job Center is open in Holly Springs.
The Workforce Investment Network (WIN) in Mississippi is an innovative strategy designed to provide convenient, one-stop employment and training services to job seekers and businesses.
The public is encouraged to visit the center, located behind the Beckley Conference Center on Rust Avenue across from the campus proper, said Marshall County supervisor George Zinn III.
There will be a grand opening at the center Monday, July 19, at 1 p.m. The public is invited to tour and ask questions.
The center, which provides services to individuals looking for jobs and to businesses looking for employees, serves two counties and the municipalities in both counties. Each government entity served is providing support for the center, as is Three Rivers Planning and Development District - a joint effort to help find work for people.
Coldwater man killed in auto accident
Jimmy William King, 39, of 354 King Road, Coldwater, was killed in an accident on Chulahoma Road Sunday, according to coroner James Richard Anderson.
King was driving northbound when he lost control of his Pontiac Grand Am and went off the road about a mile north of the intersection of Chulahoma Road and Highway 4 West.
King was pronounced dead by the coroner at about 8:55 a.m., Sunday, July 11. He said King was ejected from the T-top of his auto when the vehicle left the road and rolled onto its side.
The vehicle was noted by a young lady traveling north on Chulahoma, Anderson said.
“She looked and saw the vehicle upside down and stopped and got out to look and walked up and discovered him on the ground,” the coroner said.
King’s vehicle came to rest about 10-15 feet from the roadside, he said. The body was ejected about 15 feet from the car.
