Huggie Bear says...

The word on the street is.....

Toby will not run for re-election.

I guess he changed his mind since the quote he gave in today's MC Herald.

Personally, I'd be shocked, even though his chief deputy has told everybody he won't be there for 4 more years.

Wow. Just got it from a Sgt. at the S.O. that indeed, Trowbridge isn't running.

This will set up an epic campaign. Look for Jimbo Saxton to run again (and again be crushed), and also Narc section chief Randy Tucker, and Brad Harbour.

Could be a nasty race.

Will Longwitz for Sheriff! He was a FEDERAL PROSECUTOR!

Anonymous said...

Yeah, and a "special prosecutor" in Justice Court.

Everybody in Justice Court laughs at that particular lie.

Including the current prosecutor, who let him second-chair a couple of DUI trials.

Sad day for Madison County. No matter what your opinion of the Sheriff has been you can't argue that he brought professionalism to the department.

Well, DUH, he announced he's not running on TV.

7:46 since you seem a little dim I'll type this very ssslllooowwwwllllyyyy: KF posted the first announcement minutes after the sheriff made the announcement to his staff. The TV news reported it 8 hours later.

See, the little things that say the date and time under each posting here allow the brighter ones here among us to reconstruct a chronology of events here, but don't let that concept confuse you....

To the gutless anonymous lightweights who continue to run down Will Longwitz, here's a news flash for you - your guy won! I haven't seen anything here or anywhere else denigrating Judge Ratcliff, and it's time for you to get over yourselves and move on. Bill Billingsley

Will was "my guy" until the runoff. I've never met Steve Ratcliff, so he certainly wasn't "my guy."

I just think Will's arrogance and overreaching -- hubris, even -- was despicable between the primary and the runoff.

And he padded his resume almost to the point of perjury.

Oh, Bill. Thank you for disclosing your identity on this blog. It certainly makes you more of a man. In the mean time, maybe you should examine your friend a bit more before defending him to the death.

I think that anyone with such naked ambition who would distort his career achievements to land a public office would be someone who would draw your ire rather than your respect.

When Will chose to run for office, and chose to puff his achievements, he should have expected that his peers (that is, those who actually have known him for a while) would be critical. That is because they don't hold up. He has done a pretty good job of ingratiating himself into the Madison County community, but that in and of itself does not make him experienced enough to do the job he was campaigning for.

He chose to bend the truth to the point that it looked like an origami swan, and some people won't let that be forgotten, nor should they. Sorry that it hurts your feelings.

Wow...now Mike Kent is not running??? What is going on in Madison County???

So what's the REAL reason Toby is not running? Has to be more than he wants to spend time with his family and run his bush-hog.

I think it has really taken a toll on him. He really gives it his all and with the stress that comes with that job it will take a toll on anyone. Also his close friend and Chief Deputy is retiring. I think it has always been somewhat of a package deal with them from the beginning. And stop being so suspicious, not all of the County politicians are crooked!

Okay, 12:32 and 12:47 from yesterday, I understand what you're saying and would love to have the opportunity to debate some of your points. However, this thread is supposed to be about Toby Trowbridge, not Will Longwitz, and I'm not the one who went off on that tangent. I have a Facebook page and my private e-mail is billb0925@aol.com. I would enjoy a chance to continue our discussion, even if you choose to remain anonymous.

By the way, signing my posts doesn't make me more of a man. I do it because I don't think it's right to criticize someone if I am afraid they're going to find out who I am. It's a simple matter of standing behind what I believe, and it's not a manhood thing - women do it too, and I encourage you to consider it. BB

Toby is a class act. Toby is straight. Brad Sellers is straight. I think Arthur Johnston is probably straight. I think John Bell Crosby and Paul Griffin are probably straight. Karl Banks, Tim Johnson, D.I. Smith, and Rudy Warnock are full of political crap.

Honestly, I think it's because his chief deputy, Eddie Belvedresse (sp?) is leaving at the end of this year, come hell or high water.

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.

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.
