Update on Ridgewood sewer collapse




The city of Jackson issued the following update on the repairs for a collapsed sewer line at Ridgewood Road and Northside Drive:


As it pertains to Northside Drive and Ridgewood Road, the City of Jackson in house crew will do point repairs and an outside firm will do the line cleaning that is necessary.  We expect repairs to be completed in about 72 hours.

So, see that Antar has finally gotten down in the sewer in this election season. Not surprised - maybe he just needed to refuel to get some more crap to spread during the next three weeks.

What a PERFECT vehicle to have in the background! Babychok seems to be standing there, wringing his hands - such perfect foreshadowing of his future tenure as Mayor, because there will be SO many more such moments - so many more opportunities for hand-wringing, as caverns open up beneath streets, geysers erupt from streets, school buses fall into holes...

This past summer and the spring before...many calls were placed to the city about a foul smell at a house on Northside Drive. A rental house was suspect....the neighbors put their house up for sale as a sign of protest. Come Apr., the bleep has hit the fan, amongst other things.

Kali's puppet Babychok will blame everything on whitey. He already is.

Who or what is 'Kali'? Sorry for not being proficient in 'street speak'.

This belongs on that show "Life After People". A good example of what happens when people aren't around to maintain things.

Love it !

Warm up band . . . "In House Crew"
Main event by the rappin group . . . "Outside Firm"

Special guest star "DJ Da Sheriff " performing his #1 hit "My Office Smells Like Ass".

Lord have mercy, I no longer feel sorry for the Belhaven folks that refuse to move out of that cesspool of Jackson and Hinds County.

The Antar Whisperer. DaddyChok's political advisor who was given a taxpaid job inside of City Hall to dole out Kush favors.

I'm not clear on who took that photo, but how did Chocwar's van just happen to be in it?

Let's pretend all of the commenters above are right. What do 6:04-10:19 pm see as the end result?
What do you think it's going to cost MS to move UMMC in tax dollars and cost in medical bill increases to move St Ds and Baptist?
Or do you imagine when you type that your jabs will improve the situation and if so, how?

That ain't Belhaven.

@6:23 Wow! That blog link to Brother Kali's racist organization is pretty rich. Imagine if a white person was tied into a government position and said those kinds of things, or was running for a position and connected to someone like that. They would be strung up. I do like this little excerpt(among many).

"A big part of Cooperation Jackson is based on black reality. Ain’t nobody creating no jobs for us. Those days are long since past. In Jackson, Mississippi, I think the real unemployment rate is easily over 50 percent. I can knock on almost any door in a black, working-class community, any day of the week, and there’s an able-bodied adult, typically, who will answer the door. Any time of day. That gives you a real sense of what I mean by a deep level of unemployment."

This is one of the busiest intersections in northeast Jackson, and it's not shut down.

12:40, nobody cares or wants your sympathy. You're an internet troll and your opinion matters just that much.

Can the legal beagles see if Antar's windows are illegally tinted per the MS Window tint law? Doesn't look legal to me, but who am I to question the future leader of Kushjackistan.

That SUV just happened to be driving by when the pictures were shot. Don't read too much into it. Just couldn't resist posting it.

Me I'm My Daddy's Boy! said...

Surely you don't expect anybody to believe that bullshit, Kingfish. 'Just happened to be driving by', pulled across the stripes at a 45 degree angle, stopped and exited the vehicle at precisely the moment the photog was snapping a photo. Right. Happens all the time. Chockie Joonyer for Mayor!

Kingfish said...

Well, it's true. I didn't shoot the picture but I had a photographer go by that day and shoot several. It happens. How the hell would I know when that SUV was going to be there. I wish my intel was that good.

Kingfish Is The Best.. said...

The only answer is that Chockway's handlers knew when the TV crew and you would be on the scene. They used that knowledge to their advantage and dispatched a marked vehicle to the spot. They had been waiting on the second floor of Whole Foods (a gathering place) and rushed over when you arrived. There is no other possibility. Good work!

What about the pump stations and hoses up and down Northwest Street? It's
A mess!!

Anonymous said...

I saw an eight inch black hose running the length of the west frontage road from Cowboy Maloney at least a mile to the south, crossing streets (orange cone was present) and not sure for what purpose. I guess a vehicle could cross it but it would be difficult for a normal 'car'.

Anonymous said...

There is another active surface sewage bypass with big loud pump underway at London and Brussels. Property values are skyrocketing.

Believe the frontage roads are MDOT's. This particular sewer collapse is all repaired and closed 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.
