Meridian Ms is home of the queen of the gypsies , Kelly Mitchell, who was buried here in 1915. Over 20,000 people were in Meridian for the funeral of the Queen. Now one of her decendants wants to open a fortune telling business and the city council refuses to lift the ban. Ward 2's Mary Perry, who voted to keep them out of the city, says she voted based on her religious beliefs.
"I read my Bible, too, and it talks about fortune telling and so forth," said Perry. "Everyone has their own opinion and can do what they want but I try to follow what is legal and within my heart, and after praying about something. I kind of go with that."
4 out of 5 city council members voted against opening the business for the fortune teller in the city limits.
