On Tuesday morning, Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs Jr. plans to recommend to the city’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen that the bar and lounge of LD’s Kitchen be allowed to reopen under new management, enhanced security features and capacity restrictions, effective Tuesday, Oct. 27, at 6 p.m.

The bar and lounge portion of LD’s Kitchen, located at 1111 Mulberry St., was ordered closed by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen earlier this month following a late-night shooting Oct. 6 that left three people injured. Wade Carter, 31, subsequently died of his injuries Oct. 9.

The suspected shooter, James Earl Winters, 29, remains at large.

On Oct. 8, Flaggs announced he would seek to have the bar declared a public nuisance.

Warren County taking over repairs to sinkhole on Mt. Alban Road

Warren County has taken over repairs to a sinkhole on Mt. Alban and Culkin roads.

The sinkhole opened Friday morning caused by a water line leak. The leak was repaired and the road patched Friday afternoon by the Culkin Water District, but the repairs did not withstand the torrential rain Friday night.

County Engineer Keith O’Keefe informed the Warren County Board of Supervisors Monday morning during a work session that he and County Road Manager Jamie Cain had visited the site over the weekend and again this morning. O’Keefe said he felt County Road Management was better equipped to handle the repairs in a timely manner.

The sinkhole, and the cavern that developed under the road, was from an abandoned water line that had been leaking for an extended period. District 1 Supervisor Edward Herring expressed his concerns that there were other, similar issues throughout the district.

O’Keefe said the county crews would compact the soil and use rock on top. He added that they would allow the area to settle before repairing the asphalt.
