Billy Redd running for Tim Johnson's seat

Billy Redd, local pest control magnate ;-), announced last night he will run for the office of District 2 Supervisor in Madison County. Tim Johnson is the incumbent but announced he is not running for reelection.

Speaking of Madison County, apparently yours truly was the subject of much commotion at the meeting of the Madison County Board of Supervisors yesterday, as copies of the map I posted about land owned by Supervisor Karl Banks that just happens to be situated next to the proposed site for the water park and Calhoun Station Parkway were passed out. Apparently Mr. Banks went into a tirade about "cowardly bloggers" and used other colorful language. Nice to know I am loved after all.

Full speed ahead on Calhoun KF.

Poor Mary's containment strategy has failed.

Kingfish said...

Whats the point? I'm not arguing abut the project but a supervisor using his position to enrich himself and then hiding it on his economic impact statement.

Kingfish said...

economic interest, sorry.

Stepped on some toes... good for you!

Ah, it's nice to know you're loved, huh? I'd dispute "Cowardly" as well. Showing up ready to defend with facts would be worth popcorn for sure. :)

Oh please, I have watched Karl for 26 years, and he has said and done things in full public view that would have had the Clarion-Leger in full outrage if it had been another supervisor.
Good for the "cowardly lion; I mean blogger".

You are anything but cowardly, Kingfish. I hope Karl is made to squirm like a worm on sidewalk about that entire situation.

This world needs more Kingfish!

Lol...I have one eye working tonight and I read that as "cowboy bloggers" at first! (I like that image much better anyway.)

Yeah, attacking the messenger is what those who can't dispute the message do.
In politics, when people call you names, you know you're doing something right!

Thanks for the explanation - just tonight my 10-year-old saw a 'Redd Man' truck and wanted to know if that was an exterminator who specialized in red ants or 'red bugs' ;-)

Thanks for all you do, KF. Appreciate the hard work and the reporting. Its so sad that those who are paid to be reporters and those who are paid to be editors and news providers simply choose to ignore their job and duties. We are grateful that have chosen to do what they refuse to do.

Did Karl vote on Calhoun Station as he did all the other meeting?

Did someone ask me did I have faith in our state government?

KF when Jerry Lewis over at the CL uses the word "MAY" in addressing the reason for the death of the white supreme guy and then today they have totally misleading
headline to a story. It you big guy. We are counting on you.

"Sully could have landed at LaGurdia" Hell no he could not, dumbass.

To late oxbow they moved the story off the front of the web site after 23 blistering comments.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
