North Street is fed up!!!

North Street residents are sick and tired of being sick and tired of a noisy pump that is operating 24 hours a day for several months now and expressed their displeasure:

Nothing like living in a Third World city. Yay, Jackson!
By the way, they've got another one of those in the parking lot in front of Mr. Chen's on I-55N. How many more will they set up? Any bets?

There is one at London and Brussels in NEJackson.

Maybe Yarber will reach out Rankin about "regionalizing" free standing water pumps and emergency infrastructure repairs. Hell, let's regionalize the police departments while we're at it, Tony. Anything else you mumps need help with, Tony?

8:34... maybe they can just connect multiple pumps throughout the city above ground and bypass the entire underground infrastructure... problem solved right?

Anyone know what is going on on West Street by Scanlon-Taylor with the hoses running down the middle of the street?

Does Antar have a plan? Composting on site?

Let's give Jackson credit that someone hasn't "jacked" the pump and sold it for scrap. Yet.

Hey Kingfish, if you want to blow your mind and your reader's minds; look into how much the city has spent on these puppies. As I recall, when I saw the numbers that the city has paid to rent a lot (if not most) of these, they could have easily paid for repairs to their treatment facility. They are in permanent use at the treatment facility, and have been for some time now.

This may be the most wonderfully sarcastic comments early in a thread on JJ, ever.

Quality work.

The ENTIRE city needs to be redeveloped! Everything must go!!

9:20, i'm sure someone would've stolen and sold them by now if they had any value.

West street is a bypass of sewer line....must have collapsed.

Are those poison removers? Gotta protect the city from those bad Rankin County types!

Another problem I saw today. On state street, going north, in front of the CVS there is water coming out of the middle of the street. Another busted pipe.

I've sold several cars due to jackson streets.

Arlington at state is a bubbling mess.

Amite at state is another mess.

Cvs on state is a mess.

West street is a sewage nightmare.

Sooner rather than later the state is going to be facing a health emergency when Baptist hospital patients have to inhale Kenneth's fecal matter.......

Maybe that's the plan

8:43, the problem is with the vast amount of yazoo clay underneath of which is at a depth of 340' to 360' in thickness. No amount of money, construction or engineering below surface will eliminate this problem. It will take more than what this city or state can throw at it. The founders of this city had no idea when they settled here what type of subsurface conditions were here. Above ground utilities in certain areas may be the answer to offset the cost of underground infrastructure and the cost to repair/replace. I'm. It saying all of it has to be done this way but a majority of it can.

Clear water coming up between MS Street and church driveway on south side of FBCJ.

"Above ground utilities"? I have no idea but am asking if anybody has an example of any city in the United States that has its sewage pipes above ground?

(Just wondering: On this recaptcha robot test thing, when you successfully pick the squares with autos or signs, why the hell do you then have to do the same thing again?)

New Orleans has miles of water and sewer above ground.

Rebuiliding using above ground pipes in places may be hideous.....but it makes sense financially.

Anonymous said...

12:57...maybe for the ninth ward and Jackson.

Anonymous said...

5:08 if you ever go to the super dome you pass by miles and miles of above ground pipes.....

That's not the 9th ward.....you dick

The idea that because of our yazoo clay we should consider above ground utilities is a wonderful idea. Except for the little detail that above ground sewer/water lines have to sit on a foundation. And that foundation would have to be built into the yazoo clay. I realize that little details like that might perplex the average person that expresses their expertise here but if they are auditioning for a job in Yarber's second term PW department, or to become part of the Kush administration, we'll give you a pass. Otherwise, think before you type next time.

You realize houses are built on foundations? And they don't collapse?

Never mind.....

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!!!
