Madison county needs a Chancery Clerk not a POLICE OFFICER. The job of Chancery Clerk is not an easy one as is. To be adding policing all government employees on top of that is crazy.

Wish the clerk would do this in Jackson. There would a ton of special elections. On a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drop to zero.

2:11. Rudy, is that you?

@1:37---Seems the logical place to start. 1.2 mil.on a study to relocate the airport? This study was done a few years ago, so why spend 1.5% of the entire county budget on another study that will yield the same results? Can you say "Good ole boy" about this one?

@2:11 "Section 19-17-1 of the Mississippi Code states that the clerk of the board (Chancery Clerk) is the county auditor and shall perform the duties of auditor."

If you don't want a "police officer" then you must be okay with current corruption. Maybe you are benefiting from it?

Sec. 19-17-1 of the Code states that the duties of the Chancery Clerk are to "perform the duties of auditor".

In Madison County it's way past time for that.

I don't think anything a Chancery Clerk can do could overrule or undo what the BOS, MCEDA Board, etc. votes on. As such, how would the "auditor" have any real authority to do anything but report findings? Even if he found something illegal, all he could do is call the DA or Sheriff.

uhhh, that's the point 3:32. get the illegal activity discovered and referred for prosecution...

Look out Pickering, Overby is after your job now. Biz Nez man and protector of gun rights and I vote agin' taxes, Ron Lott, didn't even mention what he knows about the duties of the job. Doesn't anyone want to do the full time job of Chancery Clerk?

Overby is running around town saying the Queen of Madison is supporting him, all while he and Steen are bad mouthing her. Gene Magee is laughing his ass off on this one. Mary getting outplayed. Must be slipping a notch.

Anonymous said...

looks like 5:03 is a Ronnie fan - or even worse - an Irby/Tim Johnson/Rudy fan - just trying to make up BS to make Mary mad. she is much smarter than that and smarter than you. And Overby isn't saying any such thing. We all know that.

@5:03...Who is Gene Magee?

Anonymous said...

@8:06. Obviously your not from here or you would know the dislike Magee, Steen and Overby have for our Queen. 5:03 is dead-on. Steen and Overby do what Magee tells them to do. That's why Overby eventually lost his job. This is a Madison v Ridgeland thing. Nothing else. Could give a hoot about the clerks race.

do you think mr. Overby will audit unreported campain contributions or will that be to close to home.inquiring minds want to know.

HA HA Overby investigating Steen is just to funny. He will investigate Lott though. Lott and Steen and Magee were best buds till a couple of weeks ago till Magee and Steen got Overby to run. This is one big cluster F%#£. Now Mayor Mary new friend is Lott? This is just weird. Think about this. If Lott wins then there will be 4-1 against Steen cause the BOS will appoint the new board member. Everyone is working against Overby now. Maggie and Steen just out smarted themselves. AGAIN!

8:11-Jean Magoo is the lady who is mayor of Ridgeland

Sounds as if some of you involved in county government are afraid of a newly elected Chancery Clerk looking into your activities. If you have nothing to hide, you should not have a problem with anyone that is elected.

John Bell Williams is going incognito these days. Got that scruff-beard goin' on, one day you see him all sharped up with his big ole belly poppin' the buttons on his white shirt; the next day he's in his lumberjack attire yuckin' it up.

One day he's slumming, the next day he's glad-handing the plebes. Hell; at least when he was in charge of lettuce and canned goods we could keep an eye on him.

Gene McGee, people. At least spell it right.

OH....you mean Eugenia Magee.

Please people, The Mayor of Ridgeland is trying very hard to stick it to the Mayor of Madison again, this time with Overby as his pawn. Show some respect when a man is playing sneaky politics.

Anonymous said...

Do you really think Mary will support Lott who voted for Sulphur Springs boondoggle, brought a card carrying Democrat to be Board attorney, and refused to second a motion to stop the latest Rudygate $1.2 million airport location study? By the way, one of Lotts first actions was to order a brand new Tahoo with a police package to ride around in. Yeah, some conservative Republican.

So is Mr. Overby and 3:15 saying my friend Arthur Johnston wasnt doing his job?

Anonymous said...

9:33- the Lott support was a joke. Gotta have a sense of humor if you want to play on JJ.

Anonymous said...

Hey Overby! Didn't you get your ass fired from Madison County because you were playing dirty politics with McGee, Steen and Lott. Now you want to run for office? What a joke. You are what we call a Slow Learner.

Anonymous said...

Did anyone go to the Madison Republican Womens deal yesterday. Overby spoke about 15 minutes over his time limit and the poor lady in charge had to ask him to stop speaking. They said he was boring them to tears

Anonymous said...

I hear Mike Crook is planning to run.

bill said...

I don't think Overby or anyone else is saying Arthur Johnston didn't do a good job. He's just saying that he'll audit the county if he's elected. And I also think he was collateral damage that came with the Steen massacre. I don't think Karl would have run him off had he simply been hired as County Administrator through an objective process. The fact that Gerald recommended him for the job was what cooked that particular goose.

Anonymous said...

You mean the Steen/McGee/Lott/Overby massacre. They were all together in their little schemes. They all did McGee's bidding and got whipped like a bunch of little girls. That's what happens when you try to play above your level. We call that a Teachable Moment. Trying to say Overby was just "collateral damage" is nieve. Overby was in lock-step with whatever McGee and Steen wanted. Its why he got his job and its why he lost his job.

Anonymous said...

@4:14 Bill, you know very well that isn't the real reason Overby got fired. He was doing everything Gerald Steen told him to do by way of Mayor Gene McGee. Lott wanted to make McGee happy so he voted with Steen. You know this and it amazes me you are only telling part of the story. Why? You trying to white wash this for Overby maybe. Wont work on this site.

Anonymous said...

There are soooo many people against Gerald Steen now it will kill any chance Overby has. he wont even make the run off.

Spandex Britches said...

9:19; What a rube you are. Do you really think the mayor of Madison gives a rat's turd what Genie Magoo thinks about anything, much less whether or not he 'likes' her? Drive through his town and pretend you're not in Pearl.

Anonymous said...

That's Ms Genie Magoo. I do believe your the first person in history to use RUBE and Rat Turd in the same post. Only a female would be so entertaining.

or the Shadowfax

Well, I was planning to vote for Overby after reading this blog, I might just write in my dog's name on election day.

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.

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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
