The artwork of St. Andrew's Cathedral

Do not view these pictures on a cellphone

St. Andrew's Cathedral.  It sits on Capitol Street, often ignored for six days of the week and only remembered by a few hundred on the seventh day.   No surprise as we often take what is around is for granted.  Jackson Jambalaya decided to present St. Andrew's Cathredal to you as a work of art in and of itself.  Local photographer Rick Guy was commissioned to shoot pictures of the cathedral.   Many thanks to the St. Andrew's staff for their cooperation. A special thanks goes to Buddy Huff for letting Rick shoot from the top of the Trustmark building.   Twenty-six pictures are presented below.  Please click on a picture to see a larger version.  The building opened in 1903.  The architecture, the stained glass windows, and figurines present the wonders of an age long past.  Enjoy.

Winfield show cause hearing in the Miss.S.Ct. today at 10:00

Today is the second show cause hearing in the case of Vicksburg Healthcare, LLC d/b/a River Region Health System v. Clara Dees.  As JJ reported last week, Dees' lawyer Michael Winfield was summoned for a show cause hearing on April 30, 2014, to explain why his brief had not been timely filed despite the many extensions that had been granted.  At 1:30, when the hearing was to start, Winfield was not there.  Time passed. Apparently the clerk was dispatched to contact Mr. Winfield and he had traveled to Canton for a last minute meeting with a client.  When Winfield finally put in an appearance,  he explained that he had forgotten about the show cause hearing.  As the hearing progressed, things just got worse.

A lesson in how not to practice law

Video is posted below. Worth watching.

Blowing off the Supreme Court is never a good idea. Vicksburg attorney Michael Winfield found out how true that little fact is when he decided to ignore a Mississippi Supreme Court order to show up and explain why the court should not discipline him.  Mr. Winfield is the brother of the former Vicksburg Mayor and convict Paul Winfield. The court ordered Mr. Winfield to appear on April 30 and explain why he should not be held in contempt of court.  Mr. Winfield would not have appeared in court if the clerk had not called him on order from the Supremes.  In other words, he made the justices track him down. Not very smart.  The hearing was supposed to start at 1:30. He finally appeared after 2:00. The wayward lawyer claimed he received the notice but didn't put it on his calendar. Needless to say, the justices were none too amused with his excuses as is evident in the video below.

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.
