Mike Davis (left) and Earl Burdette (right) provided security for singer Bonnie Raitt who was not threatened by anything in Como except maybe adulation. Both men are deputies and both serve part-time on the Como Police Department where Davis is interim chief.

Meg Bartlett (on steps) and Beverly Findley (not pictured) helped to coordinate Thursday’s event. Panola Sheriff Hugh “Shot” Bright (at top) hosted special guests in his mobile command unit.

Casey Lipe held and umbrella to shield his wife Amy from the sun as she snapped a picture of singer Bonnie Raitt during Thursday’s unveiling of the Blues Trail marker to honor the late Mississippi Fred McDowell.

In background, Panola Sheriff Hugh “Shot” Bright and Batesville musician Calvin Flint.
