Just earlier in the week there were thoughts of him becoming head of MHP. RIP Mr. Mac.

A dear friend and great man has died. So sorry for Delores and the children.

He was a man's man -- respected, helpful, and strong. May God's grace be with him and his family and all who worked with and for him.

Big Mac did more for this community than just about anybody else I can think of. He quietly helped many, many people with personal problems and challenges and saved a lot of people's lives and careers in the process. You always knew you were going to get fair treatment, even if it might be tough.

Thanks, Mac. You are loved and will be missed.

What a man.

Sad he's gone.

Better for us he was here.

Even better?

He left a fine family.

He started having strokes a year or two ago. He spent some time earlier this year at a rehab place after one of them.

First time I ever saw him was a performance at New Stage in a play called The Foreigner. He played the bad guy, a character named Owen Musser (I can still remember that name!) and he was amazing and VERY funny! I read in the program that he was a Jackson police officer and was stunned at his versatility.

He would act from time to time. You'd see him on local ads and such, but he dedicated his life to law enforcement, to the benefit of the citizens of Hinds County and the surrounding area.

It is indeed a sad day. May he rest in peace and may Christ be with his family in this time of mourning.

How old was Mac?

There will never be a Better Sheriff or person that MAC was. He TRUELY loved his family but he loved his HCSO and their families. We will never see a finer human being. Today is a sad day for all of us who were blessed to know him, but his body has given out and time for God to take him home. God's Speed Mac, Never Forget You!

I used to eat breakfast with him downtown in the old Krystals location a couple of times a week. I think Jeff Good may have had it then? We didn't agree on everything but we always had a spirited conversation. He was a good man.

He was an impressive man who could have held any office in Hinds County or Jackson he really wanted. And he could do it without bowing to anyone but his maker. Remember him.

Mac turned 72 in October.

RIP, Mac. I have owed you an apology for going on 40 years now. Kept saying I'd call you one day, but, it was never a good time. What would I say? What would YOU say? Tomorrow. It was always tomorrow. And now ... it's too late. There's a lesson in here, folks. Make amends. Be humble. Pick up the phone and call. Say what you need to say. Life is too short.

RIP Mac. You were a good person. Kind, funny, smart, talented, ambitious, caring. May God comfort your family and your friends.

He wasn't a yes man.

If he was allowed to use his judgment to make a decision....he did for better or for worse.

His health deteriorated for sure....but he never "went down" due to his narcissism.

You obviously did not know him...which is a shame....sounds like you could use some advice on how not to be a dick.

Well respected.

Where is the 8:02 post by 'A Dick'? Not seeing it.

Mr. Mac pulled me over one time when he was Chief of Police. As I watched him get out of his car he went to the back of his car to retrieve his sport jacket to put it on before he approached me. Gotta admit, that was classy and true professionalism right there. Believe me, I was in the wrong with my traffic violation but he could sympathize with my situation because there was a lot of cars parked on the side of the road making it difficult for me to get onto the street. He very kindly explained how I should have handled the situation and let me go. I have never forgotten that encounter with him and never will. He was very firm but fair and you could tell without a doubt he truly cared for people and their safety. Rest in peace Chief

His own power caused him to self destruct. Becoming Chief Sheriff got to his head causing his demise. He left this world sad and defeated. RIP Unit1.

Thanks for your service Sheriff Mac. You kept us all safer during your tenure.

He was the first local politician to come out in support of homosexual couples adapting kids. He was fair. It took a sheriff to stand up for equal rights. Now look how far we have come. He always told me that.

You are missed.

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!!!
