That was kind of like watching paint dry...

Can the general public own that type of flame thrower? What exactly is the equipment used? Asking for a friend.

This seems to be the only spot they've found if you watch the news. Haven't seen them up Pelihatchie Creek in a long time. Did see one outlaw boater!

I've told you for years Sigman is a dunce. What do you do? You give him my name.

Looks like they had a PRVWSD Board meeting today, and Pelahatchie Bay won't be open April 1st. Sigman & Cleveland are jokes!!

Look at the bright side, you will not have to cook the fish. They have been sanitized by herbicide and cooked on open fire when you catch them.

Bring back The Dock. Until that injustice is reckoned, screw all this stuff about lily pads and junk. That ain't even a real lake. It was built so stuff could be developed. Like The Dock.

Build a fake lake and then freak out trying to blow torch lily pads growing on what used to be cow pastures. Y'all nature conservationists are smoking illegal cigarettes as it pertains to the Ross Barnett.

And speaking of Ross Barnett/Phil Bryant/Donald Trump. Nevermind, different message under a different post. Just bring back the Dock and screw the lily pads.

9:15 Consider Xanax for the obvious anxiety. Ask you doctor.

Yes, had the Dock been left alone, think how many people it could have entertained by now! Thousands.

Bought a boat years ago and thought it would be enjoyable to take the family out on the weekends. After the first couple of times boredom set in and sold the boat after it set up for a year. The Rez is just a lake and it only had one place to pull up to and eat. Other than that you had to carry sandwiches. Boring, no scenery, no eating establishments and high priced fuel. I don’t miss it.

Dear Pearl River leadership: Your neighbors in Louisiana have been dealing with Giant Sal. for years. Please ask them how to get rid of it and spare yourselves the futility of useless experiments. (hint: there are people that have cajun engineered devices to get rid of it. Look to Lake Bistineau as an example of how not to deal with the stuff)

The Dock caused more deaths, suicides, unwanted pregnancies, end of college attendance, injuries and divorces than some wars. Drink at home and stay alive (maybe). Who needs a hundred more drunks on the road in Ridgeland every night? The other poster was right about your need for Xanax.

That's not a flame thrower. It is a drip torch that foresters use to set backfires to stop forest fires and to burn undergrowth in forests. It drips burning oil to start the fires.

@7:40. Jackson, Ridgeland and Flowood scoff at your rebuke. They covet the DUI money from Dock Rockers.

The Dock was a dump!! Went once or twice back in the day and regretted going those 1 or 2 times. I for one did not shed a tear when it shut down. @7:40 and @8:58 are exactly right.

Can anyone tell me what the Pearl River Valley Water Supply District has accomplished or for that matter finished?

I'm still waiting for Sigman to enforce his new rule about boats in yards. You can count at least twenty any day of the week, sitting either on trailers with flat tires or rotting in the grass. Take a spin from the east end of Hoy, in Madison, around through Twin Harbor and those streets. Tons of debris, fences folded over to the ground, lean-to structures serving as carports, junk cars, boats in yards, private dumps, uncut grass. And all of those people are renting their land from Sigman's agency.

With the right management and a non-political board in place, the Ross Barnett could be a gold mine.

Pissing Portside said...

Speaking of PERS, Sigman spends at least 40 minutes every evening counting up his comp time, personal leave balance and sick leave. 205 days of the latter two converts to one year toward retirement. It's past time for him to cash in his chips....plus he can knock off work for about 200 days claiming comp time (for which no official record is ever maintained).

Let's turn the reservoir property into a money-making and citizen-friendly proposition. It's never been developed and Sigman has held it back for whatever number of years he's been in the wheel-house.

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.
