The Rest of the Story.....

JJ and other media outlets reported that a woman's SUV flipped after it struck a pile of gravel on Lynch Street. 




The Public Works department repaired a water line that was several feet away from Lynch Street.  The area is served by a well system.  It was getting dark and it was decided not to turn off the water since that well served a nursing home and a child care center.   Work would resume the next day and the water would be turned off as needed.   The pile of gravel was left where it is seen in the picture posted above.  Barricades were placed in front of the gravel.  Although they did not appear in the picture posted below, Public Works employees found them in the nearby woods.  It is thought that either the SUV or another vehicle knocked them out off of the road. 

This account, of course, conflicts with the narrative put forth by a certain pothole specialist.




Pothole indeed.

The barrels that were in a pothole on West St disappeared several times. Once for 2 weeks.

Possible intentional 'vandalism' by some disgruntled contractors or beneficiaries of previous administrations? Or folks who used to claim to be in the pothole business but weren't licensed to be such?

Only the shadow knows.

What ever the facts may be, it is very obvious that the city of Jackson does not exercise many if any safety measures. Back in the 80's, when a broken stoplight was repaired w/in hours, not days / weeks......a severe pothole / waterline break / pile of gravel would have had a proper barricade configuration laid out around it, and it would have also had safety lights to alert those approaching.

Yes, a vandal or vandals are removing these caution barriers. I've noticed that along my beaten paths, the objects are there one afternoon and gone the next.

I suspect, because they are no where to be seen, there weren't enough stupid teens in the car who wanted them for room decoration.

Parents, if you find one in your son's room, march it and his fanny down to the police station.

You've personally witnessed the removals?

Still can't believe the NON-redneck powers-that-be allow this crap to occur over and over.

I've seen lots of stuff in dorm rooms and other places but never a barricade. Are you sure you want to offer that suggestion? Is that really your final answer?

Ah yes - vandals and a conspiracy theory to make Jackson leadership look bad. That's has to be it.

1257, you obviously aren't listening to the "black leadership" across the tracks. There are plenty of those folks that want to make this administration look bad, and openly talk about it. Take some time off and listen to some of the black talk radio station programs- you obviously need the education.

And I am not a supporter of this administration. Or the last. Or the one before that for that matter. But a lot of the problems in Jackson is the jealousness that exists in the various factions, and for some (i.e. Marcus Wallace) its a financial based issue. Many of them would do much more than remove a few barricades if they thought it would shame this administration (or any other administration that is not 'theirs').

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.

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.
