Stamps & Stokes stop Fortification Street repair



Well, Councilmen De' Keither Stamps and Councilwoman Larita Stokes voted against a $100,000  change order on the Fortification Street project.  Hemphill Construction submitted the change order after it discovered more work was required than the original plans anticipated.  A giant hole developed on Fortification.  The drainage system required clearing and cleaning as it was filled with trash and debris.  The water lines in one area were too close to the surface and require an arched pipe for replacement instead of a regular pipe. Chief Engineer Robert Lee told the council the work was unexpected as it was almost impossible to predict what problems Hemphill would discover as work progressed.

Today's agenda

Since the City of Jackson will not post agendas on its website, here is the agenda for today's meeting of the city council.  Not much of interest, although Mayor Lumumba is asking the city council to confirm the appointment of Soyonda Green (not to be confused with Soylant Green) as Chief Administrative Officer.  Mr. Green was a legislative assistant to Congressman Bennie Thompson and was a Sergeant with the Hattiesburg Police Department in 2009.  He is the son of Hinds County Senior Circuit Judge Tomie Green. Not much else of interest on the agenda.

Supporting the war on drugs while backstabbing the war on drugs.

Fire up the War on Drugs war machine.  The Clarion-Ledger engaged in its annual bout of hysteria over drugs and of course the Governor joined right in.  Front page story on prescription drug abuse of course.  No less than five stories and op-ed pieces on the dastardly threat to our state. Check out the headlines in the op-ed section: Death by overdose at new heights, Painkillers pose big risk for addiction, and  Bryant supports restriction for key painkiller.The newspaper was serious. They rolled out the big guns and had Jerry Mitchell write a story, Technology makes faking prescriptions for narcotics much easier, in the Saturday edition.  The artillery barrage before the attack.  However, Mr. Mitchell did join in the main assault on Sunday as he interviewed the Governor.

Faulknardo: The sequel

The estate removed Mr. Faulkner's Nobel Prize medal from Ole Miss and put it up for auction at Southeby's. The medal went unsold. Fortunately. The Journal reported:

Congratulations to the Faulkner Estate as it managed to find itself compared to Sharknado after a federal judge dismissed its complaint against Sony Pictures.

Or was the foundation for the complaint as jiggly as her... well, there are so many different comparisons one can imagine when Sharknado enters the picture but you get the idea.

Who will rid us of these pests?

I'm going to write up the story later, but here is a video from the Monday meeting of the Hinds County Board of Supervisors.  The Board rejected the lowest bid for mosquito spraying after Mr. Hathorn of Hathorn Pest Control threw a hissy fit over not getting the contract. He demanded, no, that is not right, he told the board to award him the contract without accepting competitive bids. The board rejected the winning bid and took no further action.  Too bad Phil Fisher wasn't there. He would've straightened out any vendor who told the board to do something.   Enjoy.

The Clarion-Ledger published a story written by Brian Eason that was rather critical of Jackson's website. Mr. Eason pointed out in a fit of showing contempt for the people of Jackson that the city does not post minutes of city council meetings on its website. Such practice is common in large cities. Jackson used to publish the minutes but stopped doing so within a couple of months after Harvey assumed office in 2009. Hmmm.... now why would a Mayor quit posting minutes right after he assumes office?  Nary a peep out of certain local publications about that change in policy.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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.


Note: Security provided by INS.

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.
