The boil water requirement will continue until you scofflaws pay your bills.

Geez, 39211?! Oh well!

Jeff Good has posted on Facebook that he has closed all three of his restaurants -- Bravo!, Broad Street and Sal & Mookies. Expect others to follow. You can't run a restaurant without water. This is costly in a number of ways. Servers and cooks are going to lose wages and tips, the city is going to lose tax revenue, including the extra tax for the money-losing convention center, and suppliers lose sales, etc., etc. You have to feel for them.

You know it's bad when Jeff Good is on Facebook "joking" about selling his restaurants. Aside from his lost revenue for Friday lunch and dinner, hundreds of Jackson restaurant workers will have their hours cut tonight, missing out on the opportunity to earn tip and wage money during the holiday season.

Jackson's failure to address infrastructure issues is costing good people their livelihoods.

Oh well, at least the mayor is still able to keep up his busy national speaking schedule. Radical city.

The bathrooms and water fountains are working fine at NorthPark. Oh well for the boycott.

People are getting sick and tired of all the infrastructure issues. I have noticed that even people who defend Jackson the fiercest are coming around and even growing tired of the issues. Water is essential to a city

Someone get mayor Bloomberg on the phone and ask him if he'll reconsider allocating that $1m towards something Jackson needs -- infrastructure repair.

But in all non-seriousness, the solution to all of Mississippi's problems is to cut taxes, am I right?

the concert will be fun tonight...

Jackson is doomed!! It's not going to get any better, sell out while you can and get out. Your home's value isn't keeping up with surrounding areas.
A couple of years ago, while waiting in an automobile dealership's customer lounge I overheard an honest, heartfelt conversation of middle aged black men discussing how Jackson has gone downhill since "they" had taken over the political offices. they went on to say that so far, none of them could or would get anything done.
Nothing has changed since overhearing those men talk, except a young lady was murdered in Belhaven and another was killed due to a manhole cover......not to mention the countless vigilante shooting's like the one outside UMMC yesterday. the list could go on and on.....get out while you can.

What exactly is "surface water"? Rain? How would that get into the drinking water. Wait...never mind. I'm Infrastructure-stupid.

Ah - the joys of being in Madison County (not Hinds/Jackson!)

surface water comes lakes and rivers.

Just think what if the MS high school football state championships were still
being played in Jackson. There are lots and lots of people in Hattiesburg enjoying these games. Hattiesburg and their restaurants have water.

3:20 - Most of the City is served from surface water (reservoir and Pearl River). A small part of SW Jackson has water provided by a well.

Jacksonians should invest in a good water filter for their home. Their are very good counter top varieties.

Did the water pressure close our 100 million dollar museums?

Jackson provides a boatload of water to Nissan. How does Nissan keep running when this stuff happens?

Anonymous said...

Is there a methodical plan to holistically replace Jackson's water system or is the plan to simply repair whatever breaks?

Anonymous said...

Not to worry, as Baby Chocke walks on water, may have even parted the Pearl River once. He will make things right for the Radical City with a perception of crime.

Any update? It’s Saturday at 1.58 and don’t know if it is still going on? Radio silence since yesterday?

"Jackson provides a boatload of water to Nissan. How does Nissan keep running when this stuff happens? "

I could have sworn that big Nissan plant is in Madison County, not Jackson.

Anonymous said...

I think Nissan has a backup supply arrangement from Bear Creek or something like that

@2:30. The Nissan plant is on the south side of Canton. So it is in Madison County. They are a customer of Canton Municipal Utilities. However, CMU gets the water from a state owned waterline that brings water from Jackson. The big waterline runs through Ridgeland, Madison, and Gluckstadt. So Jackson does provide the water for Nissan and also for some of the suppliers. It's surface water.

No worries. Chuck and his new world order has it under control. He has a plan.

Jackson could be given 200 million dollars and be broke in 2 years and 0 improvements to water system.

Just sayin' said...

@3:15 PM, true but there would be lots of new luxury cars in the city hall VIP parking lot; money wires to Switzerland/Grand Cayman; and newly purchased homes in gated communities in NE Jackson.

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

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.
