Update: State Senator David Blount contacted JJ this morning.  He scheduled the meeting at Obama Elementary School three weeks ago.  He is holding two more meetings in his district.  The next two will be held at Bates/Cardozo Schools (Thursday, August 2) and Siwell Middle School (Monday, August 6).  Times will be 6:00 to 7:00.  JPS officials will be on hand to present details and answer questions. He said he did not know about the Stokes community forum when he scheduled them. 

Kenneth Stokes is having a town hall meeting on the school bond referendum tonight at Cornerstone Missionary Baptist Church.  So what does JPS do?  Stick a forum at the same time Obama Elementary School.  Stay tuned.  The Kingfish is recording the meeting.

You actually expect JPS and Kenneth Stokes to get something right?

The best way not to get disappointed is not to expect much.

Comparing Kennuff to The Donald in any fashion is like comparing a toy airplane that winds up with a rubber band to a Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit.

9:42 you knew that was eventually going to happen and 10:45 you’re right.

This city will never change. Let’s go ahead and face it it’s gone

Look Out said...

Kenny would not kowtow to Putin so Trump must be the one with the rubber band.

Stokes is 100% correct on this issue... also, JPS knows this as well that is the exact reas0n they panicked and held a supporters meeting at the south Jackson elementary school same time and place as this one. It's sickening.

Actually, Stokes and Trump are cut from the same cloth. Full of hot air and acting out for the cameras and playing to their constituencies who are too ignorant to realize what is going on. Exact same playbook.

Kingfish said...

South Jackson? You sure about that?

Which meeting are you recording. Next Question: Where is Obama Elementary School?

Kingfish said...

It's on Congress near the old Two Sisters restaurant.

I went to the Cornerstone Missionary Baptist Church where Mr. Stokes held his town hall.

I bet Kenny had better snacks at his meeting.

JPS re-named Davis (as in Jefferson Davis) Elementary School Obama Elementary School.

pjm said...

Davis Elementary was renamed Obama Elementary last year I believe. Because of reasons.

Here's the story no one but me seems to know about.

David Blount sends his kids to private school in Jackson while hanging out with his wealthy Jackson neighbors and yuppies with family money… Meanwhile he plays I mean (preys) on the poor areas. Sickening!!! I believe that he's a con man at best.

Kenneth Stokes is right to question this looming fiasco. He genuinely cares about Jackson and his constituents but his message is muted by his buffoonish demeanor. JPS is going to hose the very people they purport to help and Stokes know it and is trying to get info out before it is too late.

Louis LeFleur said...

12:20, is it written somewhere that one can't live well and still care about the poor?

Since when does one have to be part of the problem in order to help solve it? If your theory were true, an oncologist could not treat cancer unless he'd had it himself.

it's a sign of the end times when Kenneth Stokes is the voice of reason amongst Jackson's elected officials.

for whatever reason, KS is taking the right stand for the right reason. it's rather bizarre.

I have a glimmer of hope that my fellow Jacksonian tax payers may be waking up. The squandering of our taxpayer dollars has reached a truly massive scale. Millions upon millions disappear overnight yet nothing ever gets done.

The reason the schools are in poor repair is that virtually no funds are being allocated for maintenance. The majority of funds are gobbled up by administration Less than half ever makes it to the classroom and literally pennies for maintenance projects.

Funding is higher than ever before, enrollment continues to shrink, yet the cries are never ending for more, more, MORE!

I'm being literally raped on my car tags and property tax. Grifters, con men, and cronies end up with the money. The kids are left with naught.



JPS, you need to show us you can be responsible with the funds you have before you start coming back looking for more!

Blount is a joke whose goal is to be the only white D and be able to run for higher office. Joke.

I read the link provided by Louie The Flower. I admit to not knowing, or either forgetting, that the JPS Board had renamed Davis School Barack Obama in order to banish the memory of President of The Confederacy Jefferson Davis.

I notice in the linked article that the Clarion quoted PTA President Jefferson. I missed the followup article in which it was reported that PTA President Jefferson also went down to the courthouse to have her name changed.

Obama elementary?? That is against the law. Check Mississippi Statutes: Title 55 - Parks and Recreation: alteration of historical monuments and memorials. 55-15-81 Alteration of historical monuments and memorials prohibited;sanctions. The statute specifically states that schools are included under this statute. Jefferson Davis school was named after a hero of the Mexican war and the renaming of this school is illegal under Mississippi law.

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

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.
