Wow. A guy who’s run a business, contributed to his community, and whose sole, lifelong ambition has been something OTHER than holding political office.

It’s refreshing.

Bill, shut up!! You're living in Will Country!!!

Bill - last time I checked this was everybody's country. Keep on talking. Glad to have a business-minded person wanting to 'give back' rather than always 'taking' from the community. Good luck.

Did he mention how he worked his fingers to the bone, day in and day out, expecting nothing in return, to put that idiot McDaniel in office. Thank the Lord he failed in this endeavor.

Bill, it's everybody's country, but not everybody's state senate seat. It's not that you are so unable, but that Will is so able. Just back off and wait for another shot at something.

Bill is sitting in front of a bookshelf of mystery books!!!! HAHAHA. That's why we should vote for you? Because you have a bunch of Dean Koontz and Nelson DeMille books?? Thank you for your purchases at Barnes and Noble. I hope that is not your only way of "giving back."

Snore.....Now why do we need a Chris McDaniel agent in the Senate? So he can be in the ignored and isolated in the penalty bench along with Chris McDaniel, Melanie Sojourner, and Michael Watosn? Worse than useless.

Anonymous said...

6:13 - unlike Watson, Soujourner and Chris himself, Bill only supported the 'annointed one" through his campaign. Just as many other good folks did. (I myself was a loyal Cochran supporter - cause I didn't believe in the crap coming from McD.) I don't fault anyone for supporting a candidate of their choice. I do find fault with those that can't acknowledge when it is over. McD, Watson and Soujourner - along with the todie Tyner - wouldn't acknowledge it was over or didn't want to give up on their grifting program. Bill - and many other McD supporters - joined in as he said he would and supported Cochran.

If we are going to kick out all those that supported the annointed one (McD) then we wouldn't have a choice in this race. Will was in the same circle of Senators during the formation of the idiot group. When he couldn't have any influence with them, he dropped out.

Frankly, I find a lot to like about each of these candidates - and I find things about both of them that I could do without. Not unlike most elections. But Will's strategy of trying to paint McD over Bill everytime the name comes up has worn thin with this voter, whether that is in person or behind anonymous comments on blogs.

Deny it all you want. Longwitz is Tea Party. He's never repudiated his own involvement and self-identification.

Nope -- no Chris McDaniel agent for me. Gosh we were lucky not to have that cry baby brat for our U.S. senator. If this is the type of judgement Billingsley has, we don't need him in the state senate.

Now, given that I'm sitting in this leather chair in front of a bunch of books, you might think that I'm some kind of uppity smarty-pants rich guy.

Well think again. Most of these books are trashy mystery novels and juvenile fiction. To my left, for example, you'll notice the entire Series of Unfortunate Events collection in paperback.

Truth is, I'm just like you. Just a guy in a dirty t-shirt with a pickup truck, a dog, a $25,000 Kubota tractor, and a farm miles from my home that I operate entirely as a hobby.

Score one for the idea of 'paid political announcements with no posts allowed'.

Unlike his opponent, everyone that meets Bill finds him genuine and likes him. I don't know if he can match the slickness and flexible political posturing of his opponent, but he's a heck of a guy and is very capable. And to his credit, as one of the 180,000 or so that made the mistake of voting for McDaniel, he's actually one of the ones that told him not to throw the recount lawsuit temper tantrum and to concede defeat.

Anonymous said...

I do like Bill - this he is a good guy and probably would just be an independent voice in the Senate not loyal to anyone but Madison County - not McDaniel, not Tate, etc. But this video is awful just awful. Message sucks, library shot sucks, and the farmer angle was weak.

Bill, you're a good guy - do better than this.

Poor Bill, I hate to read the ugly comments...but Will has been so good, why fix it if it ain't broken?? Sorry for the Rankin County speak, I don't live in Pearl I promise.

Wait wait wait. This is the guy who was in the Hinds county courthouse trying to throw out my vote, along with me GOP neighbors in northeast Jackson. Give me a break. I think quite not, sir. Not now. Not ever.

Tate, who forgets nothing, is so deft with a sharpened scalpel that poor Bill will be well inside the Senate chambers before he realizes he is missing his balls.

Have you lost your cotton picken mind? Not only did Billy stick with McD into his law suit temper tantrum, but "audited" the Hinds County Republican runoff results afterward for McD and gave him the Affidavit Mitch then used to argue all the Hinds County Republican votes should ALL be thrown out as bogus. How can you not recall that?

Anonymous said...

Two things are evident from reading these comments. One, the anonymous people who are making the snarky comments about Billingsley have never met him. Two, four or five Longwitz supporters seem to be at loose ends. Hang in there, Bill!

8:08, my memory is fine. He went in there and was the one that found nothing in Hinds County despite an army of tea party wackos that were staring over his shoulder trying to intimidate him.

Your support for McDaniel is enough to sink your ship.

The very idea that you were trying to throw ballots out is enough to make me puke.

I hope you spend every nickel you have only to lose.

You sir are not going to ever get my vote.

Bill gave an affidavit Mitch appended. I distinctly remember it.

Okay, let's see if I've got it so far. We don't like that he reads Dean Koontz, and we don't like it that he supported McDaniel before he realized he was wacko. Does that cover it? This is typical Longwitz - attack, attack, attack. It would be fun to watch if it were more than three people doing it. Guess he's learned his lesson, though. Don't allow comments when you're up against people who will do anything to win.

Bill is a good, honest guy. He deserves to win. Whether he will be able to remains to be seen, but I wish him the best of luck.

'The politics of personal destruction'. Will's cadre' of lightweights are on the loose, attempting to take a page from the Clinton Book of Destruction. Just inept and stumbling over themselves. It's the Junior Varsity stable in action. Will needs to reload. Bill will be fine.

Bill's family was up late last night making comments...I don't see how there could be any Bill supporters at all. What does he stand for exactly? I have no idea. Lemme guess: cuttin' waste fraud 'n' abuse?? That's a new one!!

Inexperience is not strength, as he would have you believe. And besides....quit making this about Bill. This seat is only marginally important. What impact could he make if he won?? Only for his own finances and well-being I'm sure. Will is doing a fine job and has a great future ahead. Let him grow and develop into our next U.S. Senator or Gov. Booya, I said it. Come and get me.

You people bashing McDaniel are quick to forget that he won the majority of the Republican vote.

Don't you have some democrats to be cutting checks to?

Anonymous said...

Which one of the candidates lied and called himself a “former federal prosecutor” and a “justice court special prosecutor?"

Anonymous said...

Bill belongs to Empower Mississippi, a fringe group of the democrat party, that has been working to defeat elected republican law makers in the state for over a year now. Empower claims to be a conservative group but all evidence points to Empower only working against republicans. Empower is funded by Joel Bomgar. Empower uses Joel Bomgar office to do their dirty work against republicans. Bill and Joel are on the Empower board. Joel and Bill both worked for the McDaniel campaign. If you want to elect people who want to defeat republicans then these two guys are perfect candidates.

I 100% agree with the previous poster who said that they hadn't met Bill, but met Longwitz & that was enough for them to vote for Bill. I agree! My vote is not for Bill, but against Longwitz! He is only ever interested in hearing one side of an issue (the side that pays him). My vote and my family members' votes will be against Longwitz, not for anyone else. He's a sorry excuse for a legislator. We. Need. Change. Longwitz needs to go home!

Well, Chris might have won the "Republican vote" statewide but in this district, Cochran won the Republican precincts. In fact, the GOP boxes such as Northeast Jackson jumped up 100-200 votes per box in the runoff. This district was Cochran's Republican base.

Interesting. I'm certainly not a repeat poster but I did attempt to post something earlier commenting that, not knowing the difference between the two, I would vote for Billingsley due to the mentality of the commenters attacking him on this site. Did not make the cut.

12:05 (Mrs. Longwitz), thanks for the heads up. I suspect there are only two or three people on here who are going back and forth, just like with most of the JJ threads. That's why most people read this site for entertainment, not information.

For those of you who are saying Bill had nothing to do with McDaniel's election contest with Cochran, let me correct you. I thought I could find it. If you go to the following link on KF you will find the McDaniel Complaint and Billingsley's 9 page Affidavit at Ex. F12 Aug. 4, 2014, alleging wholesale "Crossover Votes" of many of my friends, "Strike-Through Possible Crossover Votes" including at Precinct 35 "Charles Delbert Hoseman, Jr." and "Charles A. Barbour". The link:
http://kingfish1935.blogspot.com/2014/08/mcdaniel-files-complaint-with-ms-gop.html

At least let's get the record correct. There was also an affidavit in Ex. F12 by Rita Anderson, but it was only 1 page. Bill's goes on for 9 pages.

I bet Ms Longwitz has carpel tunnel syndrome trying to deflect the crap Will does. Tough gig for her.

Bill is by far more mature and a better fit for the position. End of story. Only people or person that is bitching about McDaniel is Will. So guess who all the post on here are from?

Bill should systematically piece by piece beat will. Not overwhelmingly just enough.

Madison county voted 33% for McDaniel. I assume Billingsly will get 33% as well and that's it.

@2:38 hate to bust your bubble but a poll was run by another candidate in another race in roughly the same area. 70% said they would not vote for anyone affiliated with the MCDaniel campaign or the Tea Party. McD and Cochoran broke down 66/33. Bill would have to run the nastiest campaign in Mississippi politics just to get even. This race was over before it began.

Pete Perry said...

I've tried to stay out of this fray and I'm sure my entrance now will set off folks on both sides. But there has been too much made of the crap from 2014 from folks that have no clue about the actual facts. The role Bill played in the election examination and McD's idiotic ‘supposed’ contest is not at all as people are trying to state here. And – in case you don’t know - I was there. Throughout the entire process. And anything I state here is entirely on personal information of exact facts.
Fact 1: McD campaign filed a notice of examination of the election materials – an examination that is provided for in the law. Bill was appointed as McD’s representative to be in Hinds County. There were other volunteers representing the campaign in most but not all the other counties.
Opinion 1: McD would have been much better served to be represented by folks who were experienced and educated in the process than by the volunteers he recruited, but that’s only my opinion. The campaign chose to use volunteers.
Fact 2: Hinds was the focus of attention for the McD campaign because the large number of total votes and the large vote difference. Therefore Bill's role drew much more attention than other counties.
Fact 3: Bill did not try to throw out anybody's vote in Hinds County. What he did do was review the materials and document anything that he found that was not clear on its face as to its propriety. This is the process any good examination would do following a close election.
Opinion 2: This entire effort was futile because of the total vote difference and because the primary focus of the examination was not against MS statutes. IMHO the McD campaign was not looking for a needle in a haystack as is often the case in a close election, but they were looking for a haystack in which they hoped to eventually find a needle.
Fact 3: Representatives of the McD campaign (not Bill) claimed that there were thousands of miscast votes in Hinds County - sometimes claiming 1,500 and at other times claiming 3,000 or more -out of the 26,000 total votes cast. After conducting an examination of the actual materials Bill found less than 300 individuals that might - emphasis on might - have voted in the Republican runoff after having voted in the Democratic primary – their claim of ‘crossover voting’.
Fact 4: It is questionable whether this crossover voting is actually a violation of MS law; but the McD campaign was claiming it was and they were looking for any possible instance they could claim. Bill’s findings were that the thousands claimed by the campaign had no validity and that the most possible actual ‘crossovers' was less than 350. These 350 cases were where he could not clearly establish that they were not crossover votes.
Fact 5: Other findings noted in his report included what any examination would make note of – items to be looked at by the legal team to ascertain as to whether or not they were violations. The job of the examination is to find anything that needs to be looked at. The job of the lawyers is to determine if in fact they are problems. But - Bill was dealing with an incompetent legal team. (Sorry Mitch, maybe it was an incompetent client. Who knows?) Bill's affidavit stated what he found - not whether those findings amounted to issues that should be raised in a contest. (A perfect example: Absentee ballot that was rejected by the poll workers with no reason ‘noted’ on the ballot envelope. Such ballots – i.e. SOS Hoseman - were listed in his report because that was his instruction from the campaign even though there was a clear reason for the rejection. The McD campaign instructions were to make note of anything that appeared to be 'out of the ordinary'. In any normal election contest those notes would be resolved before they were thrown into a filed contest.

(cont'd)

Pete Perry said...

(cont'd)

Opinion 3: Bill got stuck with the affidavit of 'his findings' being filed as if he was claiming those items as being violations. That claim was made by McD and his legal team.
Opinion 4: On the record - and I made this same statement throughout the process last June and July and multiple times since - Bill represented himself as a perfect gentleman and in a very professional manner beginning on election night at 7 o’clock and throughout the many days that followed.
It is clear to everyone that he and I were on absolutely different sides of this very heated election. His conduct throughout the process that requires a questioning of the work of many folks that had conducted the election could not have been handled better.
Opinion 5: In fact due to Bill’s professional handling of the process and factual reporting of his findings of no significant issues, it is my understanding that many McD campaign insiders felt that he wasn't doing his job properly - he ‘wasn't finding stuff’ like they expected him to do and he refused to make it up as they needed.
I am not making this statement for any reason other than to clear up numerous misstatements and attacks on his character that have been made regarding his involvement in the election examination. He made NO 'attempt to throw out anybody's vote'. If his findings revealed election errors that could lead a court to find the results in question it would be at the behest of the McD campaign and based on facts that existed. He did not report any such finding of facts.
Throughout the process, all Bill ever said he was looking for was the facts - and wherever the facts lead would determine the result. After he found no significant issues in Hinds County he strongly recommended to the McD legal team to drop any further attempt at a contest. The fact that they didn't have sense enough to do so was not Bill's call.
Now, again, I am going to try to withdraw from this pi$$ing contest. Let the election continue - but try to keep it on the issue of the 2015 Senate election. And quit talking about the 2014 process when you weren't there and don't have a clue as to what actually happened.
Thanks for letting me vent. Pete Perry

Mayor Mary was a Cochran supporter. She is supporting Bill. Andy Taggart was a Cochran supporter. He is supporting Bill. Craig Carter was a Cochran supporter. He is supporting Bill. Franc Lee gave $200,000 to Cochran's Super PAC. He is supporting Bill. This McDaniel line of attack is the best Longwitz can do to hide the fact that he is an empty suit whose only accomplishment is posing for pictures. Quick, how many bills has Will passed into law? Zero. That's the answer. Zero.

When Will ran for County Court Judge, he went around telling people it was his life's dream. He lied about his experience in Court. He waited until a few days before the election and lied about his opponent in a mailer. He lost. When Walter Michel announced he wasn't running for re- election, Will's new life dream became being a Mississippi State Senator. He promised Henry Barbour a clean campaign against Charles and then, a few days before the election, put out another dishonest mailer. Will ran in 2011 as a Tea Party guy. His own ads prominently featured the Tea Party label. It was popular then. He entered the Senate telling people he was going to be the smartest guy in the chamber. He joined Chris McDaniel's conservative coalition. When the Tea Party and Chris became unpopular, he disassociated. Where was he in the 2014 Senate race? Did he embrace his Tea Party/McDaniel roots? Did he support Cochran? Nothing publicly. Really just depended on who he was talking to. As he told one prominent Republican leader who questioned him about common core, "tell me what you want me to say." The guy doesn't stand for anything. He's arrogant. He's duplicitous. That's why his biggest supporters from 2011 are now supporting Bill. That's why Bill, who probably did more for Will Longwitz in 2011 than anyone, decided to run against him. Bill has a tough road ahead of him. He's too honest. He doesn't do a good job hiding what he believes. He's not polished. And he's running against a polished incumbent. But, Bill is far and away the better man.

Mary is supporting Bill B. and Julia Hodges, both tea party and McDaniel supporters...Mary is now a tea party idiot. Taggert is a disgraced politician who dropped out of his BOS race At the last minute, literally, to let DI run unopposed. No surprise Taggert represents Bomgar. Franc Girly Man Lee is on the board of Empower MS along with Joel Nerd Bomgar, whose sole mission is to defeat elected republican officials. What a great bunch of people Bill has supporting him ..BTW: I can list stuff all day.

So to Pete Perry argument, the guy driving the get away vehicle in the bank robbery didn't actually rob the bank, he was just driving the car for the idiots who thought it was a good idea to rob a bank. The getaway driver thought it was a bad idea to rob the bank so he didn't participate in the act. He just drove the car. People drive cars everyday, so what's the big deal??? Thanks Pete for clearing that up. I feel much better about Bill now!!!! Can't wait for more of your VENTING, it's make so much sense when you explain it in your own special way. Special being the key word here.

@11:00 PM. The one time I saw Will drooling at Mary's feet, it sure seemed like he wanted her support. I don't think many people look at Andy Taggart as being disgraced. Most people respect him as one of the elder statesmen of our party. I also don't think anyone who knows Franc Lee would characterize him as Tea Party. As far as Empower is concerned, as I understand it, the group was responsible for getting the special needs esa bill passed this year. Longwitz voted for it (after voting against a nearly identical bill last year). It's also my understanding that Empower's PAC is supporting Republican candidates, including a bunch of good incumbents. I get that you have to attack to cover up the fact that your guy hasn't done anything in four years, but you should come up with something better than blasting Bill's well-respected supporters. Makes you sound desperate and personally invested in Will.

@8:31, you make a mistake in believing that Tate and Bill would be at odds. Bill has hosted fundraisers for Tate at his house. Only one person in this race has ever been a member of Chris McDaniel's conservative coalition in the Senate and that person was Will Longwitz.

Anonymous said...

Like I've already said, the people who are saying this stuff about Billingsley have very likely never met him. Anyone who knows him - or anyone who cares to dredge up old campaign finance reports - knows he and Tate get along just fine.

Kingfish said...

Time to weigh in on both sides.

1. Tate won't be putting Bill in any penalty box. Bill hosted a fund-raiser for him at his house in 2011 election.

2. What Pete said about the vote counting was true. Bill found around 300 votes that were questionable. The campaign tried to get him to say there were over 3,000 questionable votes. Bill refused to go along with that when it wasn't there. I knew other people who examined the votes and they said it was around 300 as well.

3. Bill supported McDaniel in the primary as many conservatives did. Hell, as a conservative, I have a problem with Cochran's record. However, when McDaniel lost, Bill said ok, he lost, time to move on, and supported Cochran in the general election.

4. Will has never passed a bill? That is a flat out lie. Just off the top of my head I can think of the domestic violence bill that became law last year. Big deal. It allows police to charge suspects with felony domestic violence without the victim's consent or her filing a complaint. It was his bill and he worked hard to get it passed. There was also an insurance bill he was tasked with working his first year and if passed as well, if I'm not mistaken. Trash that bill and you will get trashed by me and a few others.

5. What exactly did Will lie about in those mailers? DOn't call him a liar, be specific.

To your Question #5

How about that Walter Michel and Bill Denny were special guests of Will's fundraiser and they did not even get an invite to the event, much less get asked by Will if they would be said special guest... I know that for a fact...

There is the first lie...

Apologies to Elvis, but lets not even begin to talk about all the "shaking going on!"

Ok, let's make it simple for Bill. Get off the Empower Mississippi board. They are working overtime to get elected republicans beat all over the state. You want to be an elected republican then denounce the main group in the state that's working against them. Do that and you can call yourself a republican, until then he is no better than a democrat, which makes him A POLITICAL enemy of the GOP.

Now you are switching. You said something about a mailer before the election. You avoid that when challenged and bring up the fund-raiser so I will axt you again. What part of the mailer was not true?

4:29 - while I disagree with the Empower Mississippi group in many ways - your description defies logic. They are working to defeat elected republicans but they are trying to replace them with republicans. That does not make EM a non-republican group as you try to state. It just makes it one that has a different opinion as to who should hold a particular office. I believe that all the candidates recruited by and supported by EM are republicans. Please tell me your logic that supporting republicans makes one a non-republican.

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.

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.
