This month marks an entire year where I've not received a water bill without an estimated reading and, with Yarber icing on the cake, I've not received a water bill at all since April.

The State of the City is incompetent, inept and incapable.

He should fire the folks who are doing his PR; that photo looks like 1. He is looking down on the city, and 2. He is hiding behind window blinds. I'd listen, but I know its all going to be bullshit, excuses and complaints. In every way imaginable this guy is a joke as a leader.

On the other hand, at least the city is using the convention center...

Wonder if the turn out will be like his last meeting?

LOL, I didn't even notice the venetian blinds until the above poster pointed them out. Probably not so good an idea.

If you are not receiving water bills, 2:02, have you reported this to the City's Service Center Billing Office? It is my understand that the estimated bills for water will be reconciled soon when your meter and its reading apparatus are considered accurate.

"Water Bill" is what we call a bill that includes sewer service and garbage pick up twice a week. Water alone is not the entire charge.

Personally, I would want to clear this up and not be hit with a huge bill that has accrued since April.

Looks like he's expecting a drive-by shooting.

The Photo appears to have been taken from the top floor of the Sillers State Office Building, facing south

It's time for this man to go back to his regular job. We appreciate you enjoying the mayor's position but we are tired of you already and it's only been 3 years. I would vote for Gwendolyn Chapman before tony

That's just nasty and racist 4:44. You can't read anyway.
(My apologies if you have a hearing problem.)
Pic is fine. Glad he shaved. Had a voicemail last evening about a new water monitoring system of some sort.

Good Lord, surely you don't want the Hemp Lady. Yarber is much better than that.

The state of the city presentation should take about 60 seconds.

5:30, the achievement part should take about that long if he talks real slow. Challenges might take a pretty good while. Plans should not take very long.

Johnny Weir said...

He is certainly much, much, better than Antaw Labumba would be.
Antaw would have everything in the city balled up with paranoid unfair treatment of Jacksonians by the man. I'll give Yarber my vote for other 4 years.

When you go to the web site to watch the State of the City, you'll actually want to click on the link that says, "Mayor Yarber State of the Union tonight 6:30P"

Tony is peering out the blinds, making sure Wells Fargo isn't in his front yard looking to collect on the mortgage he defaulted on. YOU IN JACKSON BABY BOY!

What has happened, we elected a mayor (CEO of Jackson) and now we don"t have a mayor?

Must say Kingfish that I'm a bit surprised you did not report on Yarber's National Fried Chicken Day proclamation.

The negativity of Jackson, add in the racist rhetoric from the surrounding suburbs is why people leave this place. Kid Rock wrote "Jackson, Mississippi" in regards to drug addiction, but when he wrote this part its damn near prophetic - "When the daylight disappeared, I took a good look inside - behind my pride, I sat down and cried. I know I'm not a fool, but I don't know what's wrong.
Maybe it's time to pack and just move on."

That's what the best and brightest say to themselves when it comes to whether they are going to stay or go? A majority of the time, they say "screw this, I am gone!"

Wake up people, we are our own worse enemy, Mississippi will not improve, until we become tired of this bullsh*t! Are you sick and tired of being the laughing stock of America, yet!?

Yarber has been such a disaster that it will open the door for Antar to be elected. That will be much worse than we could have imagined. Even worse than if Chokwr would have lived to accomplish his goals.

A "water bill" is a mythological piece of mail I last received in January of this year.

Fact Is... said...

According to the paper in my driveway this morn, the mayor is quoted as opining 'all systems are go'. What time is the ticker-tape parade?

Ghost of Henry Kirksey said...

Y'all just keep on bitchin' and you gonna wind up with Kennuff 'Sweat-Rag' Stoakes in the mayor's office. Talk about national laughing stock.

Antar doesn't make the runoff. His window of opportunity was the last election and it has closed.

Dear God 9:26, did you just refer to Kid Rick as "the best and the brightest?"

On the educatin' front, Cedrick Gray won an award:

Who took the kickback for the Patrol rifles JPD ordered. They have been sent back twice for faulty parts. But you tell your officers they are to incompetent to possess tasers but want to ensure they all of them are equipment with rifles..Where is the moral sense in that.COJ is destined for a lawsuit. Tasers preserve life, proper training equals proper execution. Big ups to the inferior rifle class.

Kingfish said...

They ordered Core 15's. There was a problem with magazines. The company has been offering some insane deals on Core's. You could get the Scout on Gunbuyer.com a few weeks ago for $549 with shipping included. That is a retail price, not bulk wholesale. They bought them because they are the cheapest, don't take donations as Clinton did, and have a few hundred patrol officers. I'm not a fan of the Core 15. Gimme a S&W any day of the week instead.

I don't live in Jackson, so really I don't have a dog in the fight- I don't even live in Hinds County... however I get pre-recorded voicemails about the changes to my water service from Mayor Yarber. I am not sure how our Madison County (not even city) landline phone number was included- but I would guess the money could be better spent elsewhere......

The Mayor could have just leveled with the crowd and said, "Folks, the City is F$&ked Up! Thanks and have good night. Please be safe as you dodge the pot holes and craters on your home."

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. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
