This sinkhole opened up yesterday at the corner of Ridgewood and Meadowbrook.

A heart???

Fortuitous for the city that the sinkhole didn't result in personal injury or a death.

What is the betting line on how long it will take the city to repair the sinkhole?

Anonymous said...

Fortuitous? Really? We know what it means, but who really uses that word when talking? And if you insist on using it, then why not say Fortuitous that no one was hurt or killed!
And it would have been quite ironic had it appeared on Tuesday (Valentine's Day) since it does look like a heart.

Kingfish, do you ever get tired of being right all the time? You've been talking about Ridgewood falling apart for a long time.

Pic 3 is a massive cervix. Jackson officials are right. Not their fault. Aliens.

Chunk some dead body's in the hole good lord jackson has a few to spare!

Surprisingly/thankfully, they identified that it was imminent before the hole opened up. The corner has been blockaded for about a week.

Bullshit. The corner wasn't "blockaded" yesterday. Not at all. There were only two plastic warning markers, one falling into the hole. Northbound Ridgewood traffic was still turning right onto Meadowbrook eastbound right over the opening sinkhole.

The road department for City of Jacktown is like management at DPS. The think if they lay down an orange cone, they are forever protected from liability.

In other words, as long as you offer minimal response, yet no followup, you won't be successfully sued.

Is it actually a geological sinkhole?

And this is one of the "better" parts of Jackson...

Kapooya! kapooya! size of a quarter dog-gone.

7:29, It was at one time one of the "better" parts of Jackson. Unfortunately, there are no better parts any more. The city has declined to a point that it is doubtful that it can be salvaged.

Is the city only repairing Ridgewood Road between County Line/Old Canton Road or the full rollercoaster all the way to Lakeland Drive?

@8:39 You cannot find small lot subdivision, not on a lake with price tags similar to the subdivision the hole is near anywhere else in the metro area. Know your facts before you continue your constant bashing of Jackson. You must wake up every morning thinking how fortunate you are to live outside of Jackson and be able to get on JJ and bash Jackson. Shortsighted and angry, IMHO.

Picture 4 looks like the inside of some type of structure. A manhole, an electrical underground space, a telephone area?? It does not look like normal underground washout.

My guess is that the first attempt at repairs will be made before Easter.
I am not saying what year.

This is fake news. The sink hole does not exist and, if it does, it's the fault of the liberal media. And probably the Democrats.

Million dollar properties said...

@8:39. Please check the MSL. There is a home for sale literally right down the street from the sinkhole listed for $4.5 million. You must be a dumbass or just a jealous person in a fake stucco home in a pasture

In the third, fourth, and fifth photos, I see strange lights and patterns down in that hole. So, I'm expecting an Alien Tripod to emerge from the newly-opened cavern, any minute.

A woefully outdated house where you could film a 1970s era period piece porn flick. Other than that the Hood house proves nothing and certainly not that Jackson is more robust than detractors claim.

1:48 What about checking MLS instead?

Anonymous said...

The city was already working on the " sinkhole" yesterday.

225 pm Try to keep up. Ride through the high end neighborhoods and use your eyes . The remodeling is pretty obvious. Maybe you should check building permits as well and be more objective in looking at MLS. Owners are remodeling and adding square footage and home values are increasing. No the speculators and flippers haven't moved on the houses that haven't been well maintained or lack curb appeal as yet. But, they will.

If you study urban renewal at all, you'll find the current patterns we are seeing in northeast Jackson are positive indicators. When was the last time you rode through Eastover's neighborhoods or CCJ as well as Woodland Hills or Fondren?

Noticed the construction at Maywood Mart and Highland Village? Noticed the activity? You might try counting the cars at the Renaissance during shopping hours and counting them at Highland Village and Maywood. Go in the restaurants during lunch.

Where do you think the doctors and staff working at the expanding hospitals want to locate? As far away from work as possible? You think the Meridian was built because there was no demand to be closer to med school and the hospitals.

Follow the money, honey. The rich are rich for a reason so do what they do before the ship sails.

7:04. Good analysis but you'll never convince the ignorant. They just don't care or want to figure out what's going on. EVERY single home that is sold in Eastover gets remodeled, some minor but most are major. There are at least 5 going on right now with the smallest dropping at least $100,000. The others are anywhere from $200,000 to $500,000. Buyers with confidence and the will to back it up.

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.
