Look Mom, No River... said...

I don't see any discussion regarding their decision to permanently close most of the tourist area of Great River Road State Park at Rosedale. Less than three weeks ago they violated the lease and state law by torching the huge, creosote tower and river-viewing area. The school board has now terminated their lease. Mississippi is not the only state on the river with zero state park area available for adequate viewing of the river.

Everything MDWFP has done regarding taking over this park and turning it into a high-dollar hunting resort has been done in the dark without public comment period. More politics as usual.

Correction: Mississippi is NOW the only state on the river with zero state park area available for viewing the river.

Sam Polles is a good guy, they have shit for a budget and they are doing the best they can with limited funds. License sales for hunting have gone down every year. Millennials don't like being outside away from Wifi and vapor cigs.

They now have Art Kinnard who is in charge of Real Estate Services for the state. They are selling the houses and 40 acres of Canemount Plantation. It's widely suspected that one high ranking official and his buddies have been using it for their personal camp for a few years since he has a camp that borders it.

They are making a killing off of these swamp people wannabe's with this gator hunting racket.

Is Devinney still pushing his high fence and breeding stock agenda?

These men on the board don't represent the common hunter in this state. The most qualified don't have the funds to donate to the guv'nah to get the position.

The Wildlife and Fish Commissioners have always treated state hunting land as if it were their own----BIG SHOTS WITH BIG BUCKS----they bought their positions on the commission with donations. What ever happened to people like my Dad and Granddad that never had a night of unrest because they screwed over someone. The world has become a sorry ass place !!!!!!!! It's always the taxpayer that takes it in the but.

3:01; I've heard a thousand people claim Polles is a good guy. He may be. But, he's an ineffective manager. His budget is millions. You're full of crap if you actually think that department is struggling on a shoe-string. The point here is that they've squandered parks, paid no attention to citizen concerns, pandered only to the interest of big dollar hunters and populated the agency with good ole boys for forty or fifty years. The only reason they have minorities on the payroll now is due to EEOC and court actions. Look at the history of who their top management has been. Start with the brother of Amy Tuck. Wait, go back to Bob Tyler. All politics. The public be damned.

Love all the wannabes here. Anybody that contributes to a candidate is unqualified to serve in any capacity, but the good-ol-boys sitting around the fire out by the barn could do a much better job.

The DWFP should be turned over to the hunters - they are the only ones that have any interest in the herd. And that doesn't mean anybody that hunts and has money as well; they only care about themselves.

Ain't gonna argue about Tuck, but explain to me why Tyler wasn't qualified to be director of Parks? Just because he had been a coach?

And Polles certainly didn't get his job because of any contributions - first time he ever had any contact with Fordice was after he was named to be ED.

Someone still needs to explain to me how Coopwood got appointed over Jones reappointment

$50 Wild Game Supper said...

Coopwood got appointed in the Delta because he's a publisher. And he pretty much single-handedly destroyed the Rosedale park which is in his district.

Bob Tyler's appointment twenty years ago was strictly political. How would being a football coach qualify one to run half the Wildlife Agency? Same with Aubrey Rozelle who was long time Commissioner of Parks for that agency.

All of the Commissioners for this agency are appointed by the governor of the state.

No budget? Drive out to Eastover and look at that Taj Mahal they carved out of the side of a mountain.

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.
