Boil Water Notice in Madison

The Madison Police Department issued the following statement.

The City of Madison Public Works Department reports that a mandatory boil water notice has been issued for City of Madison business and residential water customers east of Highway 51 within the City of Madison due to low water pressure that was reported during regular maintenance of the water system. The notice is in effect for 24-hours unless lifted ahead of time. This notice does not include customers of the Bear Creek Water District. Affected businesses and residents are advised to boil water for at least one minute (and then let cool) prior to consumption or use bottled water until the notice has expired. Water use for bathing or showering is not affected by the boil water notice.

Kingfish note: Does this mean Madison is doomed?

Lots of guys with boring machines, shovels and back-hoes all along Hoy. Similar notice from water-pump-station on Cotton Road a week ago. Madison is crumbling.

But, at least the outhouses are red brick.

Does this affect the Costco or Whole Foods?

It’s official y’all don’t like anyone, any city or anything.

10:44 - Dear Mapless: Neither is in Madison.

Madison needs Whole Foods to save it just like Jackson.

The city of Madison has a good water system. They work hard at it, and Mary Hawkins wants the best for her citizens. These things happen, and Madison has handled it correctly. Every system in the state has boil water notices occasionally. The folks that have water from the City of Madison are in good hands.

Disclosure, I don't live in the city of Madison, nor am I a Madison water customer. But I do work in the water utility industry in close proximity to the city of Madison.

Speaking of Madison utilities, I hereby proclaim that Bozeman Rd. should be renamed "Poop Pump Road" once it gets its five lane overhaul later in the year. Stings the nostrils.

9:58 Duh!!! That's because they are widening Hoy Road.

One other thing to note, it is normal for water providers to do a lot of well maintenance this time of year. @9:58 above mentioned work on Cotton Road a week ago. Most utilities try to do maintenance and repairs in the winter when possible. Because the surge in water usage in the summer means that is a bad time to take a well out of service for repairs. Especially in an area like south Madison County where you have a lot of lawn irrigation occurring in the summer. Madison is being smart in doing repairs, maintenance, rehab in January and February.

What would you rather deal with? A rare boil water notice or the surface sewage pumping currently underway almost directly outside the front door of the Whole Foods savior store in NE Jackson?

Oh no! Madison is being Fedexed to Hell in a handcart! Run for Holmes County now!!

"...(and then 'let cool') prior to consumption..."

Way to keep those pesky trial lawyers down.

I think the Bozeman 5 lane has been shelved.

Don't remember a Boil Water Notice EVER in Madison before this one. I'm sure there's been one....but, operative words are 'I don't remember one'.

11:22 - thus the speculation that that might be the cause of the problem. You put thirty rednecks wearing day-glo vests and carrying cell phones on a muddy project and see what happens.

Even though it's not sewer related, "shit happens".

"rare" boil water notice? There are several manholes in my Madison neighborhood that overflow with sewage (poo poo) after a big rain. The street is literally covered with human feces. Clark Farms Road in Madison if you want to come see.

Did it ever occur to you that those "thirty rednecks" are keeping your water clean, safe and maintained? If those "thirty rednecks" weren't out there working, you and your family would be up the proverbial shit creek.

I'd like to see you out there performing manual labor. Maybe they're hiring?

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.

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.
