Monday NITRO!!! (Pelahatchie Edition)

No need for Raw or Monday NITRO!.  Just travel ten miles east on I-20 on the first Monday night of each month.  Posted below is the video of the Pelahatchie Board of Aldermen meeting last night and trust me, it was one for the books.

No side could claim a high ground as they all went low every few minutes.  These were not politicians or community leaders but children in grown-up faces.  Just watch the video.  Pour a drink, light up a cigar.  Enjoy.

Wonder what Canton Mayor Truly was doing there last night? Helping her stir up stuff?

Lots of anger and tension in that room. Absolutely amazing that they can't hold a reasonable discussion over such a simple issue. The city needs to go ahead and just pony up the $30K and move on. Quit opposing your elected mayor just because she is black. Not cool Pelahatchie.

Pelahatchie is down the Babbs and Ready path. Truly was there doing recon for the Blackmons.

Truly is the regional racism expert. Every new mayor needs guidance.

Good question.

Mayor endorsed Guest and attended his fund-raiser. Jackson NAACP gave her hell for it. She hires white people. Sound like someone Truly would support?

Before you play the last resort race card... look at the voting records... the 2 black council members have voted against the black mayor more than the whites. You have the right to your opinion however don't be a misguided moron. You seem to let emotion or race guide your thoughts rather than reality or facts. That's always dangerous. You might end up in the JFP.

I don't think this dispute is racial. I think there are several factors in play.

1. Mayor was elected with roughly a third of the vote. This is why pluralities are a bad idea. Winner assumes office with no majority support. This Mayor started with 2/3 of the town voting against her.

2. The Aldermen and Alderwoman have served for many, many, many moons. They are used to doing things a certain way and frankly, were more than happy to let Mayor Ross and his city clerk take care of everything. Now things have changed and it seems at times they don't know what to do. They consistently vote unanimously against the Mayor.

3. Both sides exhibit poor emotional control at times. There are times when one person is right but then blows it by blowing up. There is a great deal of lashing out.

I thought this was about the Muscadine Jubilee, but not one comment about that.

I can remember when Percy Sledge came to the Jubilee and sang and the train stopped to listen and there were booths everywhere and a good time was had by all, black and white, poor and middle class.

That needs to return. Of course Percy can't make it now.

I'll preface by stating my only reference for the happenings in Pelahatchie is this site. But doing something "because it's been done for 38 years" is not how to make a good, solid argument or decision. I'm assuming the grouchy alderwoman's suggestion to cancel because they are broke is influenced by the recent audit and the town's new inability to float funds around temporarily. Maybe they haven't actually been able to afford supporting this event for years and it's simply time to cut the cord. Other cities have done so due to budget constraints (Brandon for example) and guess what... nothing terrible happened! I couldn't even understand the names of the entertainment the mayor listed to gauge a draw for a crowd. If the mayor was truly prepared, she would have had with her concrete numbers PROVING the sales tax push from the gas stations and such she continually mentioned OUTWEIGHED the costs to "sponsor" the jubilee... proving it was a profitable venture for the Town. I believe the best way to prove something is a smart choice is to back it up with facts, not proclaim it's been done that was for 38 years. I know people will say it's about more than that day... it's about exposure. If exposure is their concern, they need to focus on how they are conducting themselves daily. I don't agree with either sides posture on the matter, but sometimes hard choices have to be made. This town is paralyzing itself, because the mayor claims everyone is against her agenda because she's black and the alderman can't speak up about much without starting a fight or being perceived as racist. It appears there's fault on both sides and neither side truly came into this working relationship with pure intentions for working together to achieve better for their community. The new mayor intended to shake everything up, and good for her, but I honestly think she could have gained some support if she had learned to pick her battles instead of going to war on every issue. The sad part is that the Town's best interest are not being achieved by either side.

These white people are still stunned to have to listen to a black woman explain things.....

Burns their skin

Funny to watch

This isn't about race. Your just a troll I would assume as you clearly point to her skin color straight away. Generally racist always assume it's about race. Stop being close minded and look at issues. America voted for a half white and half black man as president and he won both times. Consider that the US is only 11% black and well less than that are voters. Go away hater.

The people who think it's a racial issue that lies with the "white" people who are stunned to listen to a "black" woman are THE PROBLEM. Just stop already. When you begin viewing those who don't agree with every word you say as PEOPLE, and stop throwing in the extra adjectives, things will begin to improve... until then, we are stuck in this vicious race-bait, hate cycle.

10:56 - Please learn to 'paragraph' (verb). What you do is come to a pause point, then key 'shift-enter' and magically you have a double space that counts as a paragraph.

To 6:17 from 10:56 - I'm so grateful my comment was worthy of your critique. You are a true hero for proof reading blog comments. Goodness knows, we all come here looking for examples of proper writing practices. Enjoy your 4th!

KF, Ryshonda was being pretty “chummy” with Edwards Mayor Marcus Wallace, owner of MAC at the mayors convention. What is it they say about birds of a feather? Also, this isn’t hear say, she’s got pictures on Facebook. Wonder why she associates with such an individual. Living in Pelahtchie seems like they wouldn’t be such good friends even though Edwards is in SW hinds county. The #connection is clear...their words not mine.

Anonymous said...

She knows better than to involve MAC...he's a mentally challenged individual. He proved that in front of the Jackson city council.

7:39 - I'm trying to help you. The point is, NOBODY will read a 40 line paragraph. Either learn to space into paragraphs or forget about having your point made. I didn't critique your post since I didn't read it beyond two lines. Thanks. 6:17

Anonymous said...

12:43 - Lol, I do not need your help. I think you've mistaken your unsolicited advice for your reading preference(s). Geez... now you have my pondering why all those excessively worded paragraphs in the world are printed, studied, and shared if NOBODY ever reads them. Have you notified the world wide web and all the publishing companies of your findings that too many sentences in a paragraph are completely unbearable?

(New paragraph just for you!) FYI... there's a character limit in this comment section so please forgive me for trying to squeeze all my thoughts into a single comment. FYI... I posted MY thoughts and was not looking to make a point with every single reader. Amazingly, I can read others' comments every single day and not feel the need to correct the way they posted them. (I suppose that's just part of my good, southern-mannered upbringing!) FYI... you'd be better suited to just skip over comments you don't want to read and move on. Seriously... it's a comment on a blog post.

(KF, I love your blog and visit it daily. Please don't think I'm downplaying the awesomeness of this blog and your posts! I appreciate your work!!!)

that was actually much better.

there are no rules about this just makes for easier reading...it also makes you create topic sentences and support that topic sentence independently.

otherwise you garglestufftogetherliketrumpdoesanditgetsconflated

thank you

Gosh, I wonder why this mayor can't get anything done. She is so kind and respectful to the aldermen. I wonder why they won't approve her every whim even when they have already voted against it. She speaks so calmly & never talks over them when they try to discuss an issue. She would never think of lecturing them about how awful they are when she doesn't get her way. We should all be so lucky to be governed by someone with such amazing people skills. *sarcasm*

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.
