Mississippi County is hatching long-term plans to spark population growth to go with the county’s job growth…

The declining numbers exist in the face of the county’s status as one of the largest steel-producing counties in the U.S., thanks to the presence of  Nucor Corp. and Nucor-Yamato in Blytheville, Big River Steel in Osceola and steel accessories makers like Telling Industries in Osceola.
