Dispatch From Pelahatchie (WOO! Edition)

Last night was the first Monday of November and that meant Rankin County NITRO! in Pelahatchie as the Mayor, her aunt, and the Board of Aldermen went at it yet again in typical WWE fashion.

Start at 30:00. 

Interim Police Chief and Rankin County Deputy Chris Picou changed two deadbolt locks at the Police Station. The cost was approximately $30.  The Mayor took exception to this as the Board of Aldermen refused to pay when Mayor Ryshonda Beechem changed the locks at City Hall at a cost of $400.  The Mayor did so after the Board passed a resolution specifically prohibiting her from changing the City Hall locks  earlier this year. Mayor Beechem said the Board was "intentionally trying to humiliate" her. 

The Mayor and Board President Margie Warren sparred for a few minutes.  The Mayor's Aunt stood up in the audience and began yelling at the Board.  Chief Picou calmly walked over to where she stood and politely but firmly told her that she would have to be quiet and sit down or else she would be removed from the meeting.  The Mayor yelled "don't touch her."  The meeting eventually calmed down and the Board went into Executive Session.

She brought her AUNT to the meeting? That's like bringing your mommy to fight your battles for you. **EYEROLL**

The mayor's lawyer also presented to three board members papers in which she is filing suit against them. You can not make this up.

Missed opportunity here.

Move to a bigger forum. Charge admission for seating.

More racial animus.

This is tiring.

Are there any real Christians in Pelahatchie? If so please attend these meetings and remind every one of them to be civil.

The Mayor's private counsil, Bellinder, was retained for just this. I've been waiting for it. He is a sh!t stirrer and the only reason he was retained was to help her cause drama and stir up some racial stuff. I stated the same in one of the earlier posts. That's all he wants, to make a name for himself in the name of civil rights, no matter the Mayor doesn't live in Pelahatchie and her MO is to run to avenge her aunt and "get back" at the white people of Pelahatchie. Don't censor this comment KF, this is 110% the truth.

The mayor is an idiot and I hope all those fools that thought is was going to be great to put her in office, suffer. Pelahatchie is a dam baby jackson. All the aldermen and women need to quit. That town is going nowhere up. Rankin County Sheriff’s Office is the absolute best thing that has happened to the town since Mayor Ross left. I truly hope they take the town over.

4;18 it was her mother not her aunt who worked at the police station. Her aunt broke the law by signing an affidavit saying she lived there while she was running for mayor while she still lived in Jackson. I know this for a fact. I live close to the aunt and have driven by her house everyday for years. Also the mother got lucky when the police chief died and Mayor Ross got the auditors office to drop the case. This is a fact.

I miss the days of public access television covering city council meetings. Meridian was just as bad in the 1980s and this is like the same song but worse!!!! NITRO!!!!

"Don't Touch Her!" Unfortunately (for the mayor), a mayor does not have the authority to order a policeman to not do his duty in a public meeting. He was within his rights (and duty) to tell the loud mouth to desist and take a seat. And, if necessary, he has the authority to 'touch her'.

The Mayor's outburst was simply more 'Don't Tase Me, Bro' bullshit.

When is Fat Albert Stokes moving to Pelahatchie?

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.
