GI Joe

G.I. Joe: Celebrating 50 Years


Description: Relive the nostalgia of the original action figure, G.I. Joe. One of the largest private collection in this region, owned by Joey Tutor and son, Joseph, features hundreds of G.I Joe’s spanning 50 years, from 1964-2014. Includes single figures to realistic dioramas, complete with jeeps, boats, helicopters, ATVs, and historical figures. G.I. Joe has been a prominent toy, except during the late 1970’s due to the high rise in petroleum prices, because plastic is made out of petroleum. Come celebrate the 50th anniversary of G.I. Joe at Oren Dunn City Museum, the #1 Christmas present for boys for decades.

Ebola Hotline Activated for General Information



JACKSON, Miss. – The 24-hour Mississippi Ebola Hotline has now been activated through funding from the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH). The hotline is available for general Ebola information and will direct any case-specific calls to health officials when necessary.


The hotline number is 1-877-222-9358.


“While it’s highly unlikely that we will see a case of Ebola here in Mississippi, we continue to work with our healthcare partners to make sure we’re prepared for a possible case, should one occur,” said MSDH State Epidemiologist Dr. Thomas Dobbs.


“We realize Ebola is still an issue of great concern to Mississippians, and this hotline should help answer general questions about the disease to those who are interested,” said Dobbs.


For more information about Ebola and what Mississippi is doing to prepare for the disease, visit the MSDH website
