On July 1, Lucky Town Brewing Company (1710 N. Mill St.) is hosting a grand-opening celebration for its new Tap Room. Visitors will be able to purchase beer in the space for the first time, thanks to a new law that the Mississippi Legislature recently passed.

"Five years ago, you couldn't even sample beer on the premises at a brewery in Mississippi," Lucky Town brewmaster Lucas Simmons says. "We successfully got this new law pushed through just this year, and July 1 is the first day it goes into effect, so we're going to be selling everything we have on tap right now. We'll have canned and bottled beers customers can take home and will also be offering beer by the pint onsite."

The Tap Room grand opening begins at 11 a.m. and will continue late into the evening. The event will include music from the Jason Daniels Band, Scott Albert Johnson and Silas, and local food trucks, including Hog Heaven Barbecue and 2 for 7 Kitchen, will be selling food.

Debra McGee, a senior vice president at BankPlus in Jackson, said she hasn't done anything yet to secure her credit, but she often tells friends and customers to make sure they monitor their credit. 

"Credit Karma is an excellent way to check your score and monitor your credit and you can challenge incorrect information on this site and this information is free," McGee said.

 Hood urges consumers to:

Report any suspicious activity to your bank or credit card company right away. Any delay in reporting the fraudulent activity could make it harder for you to get that money back. Check your credit report periodically and

Home loans through BankPlus?

Has anyone ever taken out a home loan through BankPlus? If so, do you know if they offer any kind of grants or anything like that to use towards putting a down payment on your home?

I don't know BankPlus, but I can tell you this. The type of grant/down payment assistance is not provided by banks/lenders. Typically, this is done by governmental agencies and/or housing non-profits.
