Gluckstadt Glitch?

It looks like the Gluckstadt incorporation is not a done deal, after all.   Peco Foods and Ron Hutchinson filed notices of appeal yesterday in Madison County Chancery Court.  Attorney Bob Montgomery represents Peco Foods while attorney Sheldon Alston, SR represents Mr. Hutchinson.  Chancellor James Walker approved the incorporation of Gluckstadt recently.

What does peco foods have to do with this?

The Ice Man Cometh said...

Surprised Peco Foods isn't running a low profile considering the fact that most of its employees are what some refer to as 'undocumented workers'.

Read the fine print. They are only appealing "...the Court's award of the City of Canton's Proposed Annexation Areas 1 and 2."

12:33 Peco has two plants. One on Feather Lane near the Walmart within the city limits of Canton and the other is on West Fulton Street just outside of the city limits. It is directly next to the nasty azz trailer park where the bulk of it's Hispanic or as 5:34 refers to "undocumented workers", work force lives. Both the Peco and trailer park will end up in the grasp of the city with the current deal. Doc Truly wants Peco tax money.

Anonymous said...

8:39, correct (PECO's taxes will increase a,quarter mil!). But also - Doc Truly wants the votes from the trailer park. He's gotten some before (illegally) but by bringing them in, along with the probjects up north he can add those voters to the rOlla without them having to claim false addresses.

The 'trailer park' is technically and legally in the County and will never be annexed by the city. Interesting to note that the kill plant on West Fulton bears zero indicia that indicates it's a PECO plant (or anything else), although everybody knows it is. Peco wants to be perceived as having no association with it.

If you have a problem with 5:34's characterization, you might want to check with the Sheriff where you will get an identical assessment.

TheClintonscantsuicideusall said...

No disrespect meant to 10:44, but if memory serves, the map shown in earlier post by Kingfish did show the trailer park along with Peco on West Fulton, as well as the entire King Ranch Road area up to Heindle Road being placed under the City of Canton control. Hope you are right that this never happens as I am in agreement with Alderman Les Penn that the city currently cannot take care of what it already has in regards to Police and Fire protection. The current Public Works would also be overwhelmed and the city wants to have it's own trash collection service doing away with the current provider. Anyway, will be an interesting Hearing to be sure.

Anonymous said...

You may be right, 12:01, but, it would indeed take a real mental midget in Canton City government to want that trailer park 'in' the city. Although it would be a giant Christmas gift for the Sheriff and Board of Supervisors. I know Truly is stupid, but..

Anonymous said...

Just might be that Peco realizes the County has given them a pass not calling in ICE in the past ten years and they're not wanting to roll the dice on the city granting them the same sanctuary. One official call to ICE and both plants as well as the trailer dump close down.

The country doesn't do much policing or anything else in the trailer park. Canton can do the same and get the taxes for doing nothing in the area. As for King Ranch, they mostly show up to run roadblocks.

The corruption goes higher than that. Bennie Thompson is counting on those votes.

Nice try 2:23 but last I checked Congressman Thompson won in a landslide as if he ran in opposed. Trust me some of the same people who voted for President Trump voted for him too.

They have Bob Montgomery so Gluckstat need not worry unless they don’t show up they will win.

County& sheriff are both failing to disclose amount of crime and problems in trailer park and on King Ranch Road. Deputies tend to avoid servicing these areas and canton cops lack training and leadership to properly deal with issues. The police chief is incompetent and has constant turnover. Public Works does a great job but is understaffed, under funded and often works with dilapidated equipment. Trailer Park needs to remain in county and officials need to address imigration issues and conditions people are living in.

Let's see if we can make this simple for all those confused -

Neither of these two motions have anything to do with Gluckstadt. Despite the misleading headline, there is no glitch to the city's incorporation.

The City of Canton could file an appeal of the judges ruling regarding Gluckstadt and then there would be a glitch.

The trailer park is today not in the city limits of Canton. It's law enforcement has been from the sgeriff.

The judges ruling allowed Canton to annex the trailer park. It would then, after this appeal is over, be under City of Canton police.

The city wants the trailer park because they want PECO, (at least, they want taxes from PECO) and can't get PECO without the trailer park.

The parts of the judges order being appealed are PECO and trailer park, and Kings Road development. Canton wants Kings Road so they can add those many demographic voters to the rolls.

The 50 or so Hispanics living in Madison are not working at Peco's. They are the guys framing houses and putting on the roof, run them off and housing starts are going to fall dramatically along with big price increases.

Anonymous said...

Hispanics? No, they are Latinos. Hispanics are from the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal). Latinos are from Latin America, and are mostly descendants of the indigenous people of Latin America.

5:59 - Thank you. Hispanics are also working as master brick masons, a skill they learned in Mexico. Having had some pretty shoddy, lazy, overpriced work done on our house a few years ago by "American" workers, I will hire Hispanics this fall to construct a ramada-style pergola and paver stone patio to run the length of the south side of our house for sun and heat control. They know how to do it right. I've seen their work and their rightful pride in their building skills while vacationing in Mexico for several weeks every year for the past 8 or 9 years. People who 'dis' Hispanics' work quality and work ethic are wearing aluminum foil hats and reading Trump tweets, as far as I can tell. They don't realize how many ex-pat Americans and Canadians currently live in Mexico (I've read the number estimated as high as 5M), more moving there all the time, and that Mexico has a problem with the over 1M Americans living illegally in Mexico. Yep, migrant Americans.

Oh, I also will cook a fiesta lunch for the workers with ingredients from the Mexican food store on Old Canton Road, one of the best places in Jackson to buy fresh fruit and produce. The Paneria (bakery) nearby is phenomenal. Went there yesterday to buy baked treats for Easter.

Unfortunately it does affect the Gluckstadt incorporation. Mr. Hutchison filed his appeal against the incorporation because he wants a road built to some of his commercial property and doesn’t think the city will allow it, so he is going to hold up the incorporation for all the citizens until he gets his road and then he will drop the appeal. One persons agenda will affect the couple of thousand citizens that have eagerly been waiting for this day.

Anonymous said...

Hutchinson wants a one off, he will lose,it's a shame he can't see that, don't negotiate. He wants to force more commercial property when you can't fill what's in the area already.If he wanted too he could have built his road before it went to court.

Anonymous said...

Where does Hutchinson want his road built? Often businesses build their own road.

Anonymous said...

Hutchinson wants to extend the roadway along the north side of Callaways. He wants to extend it all the way to Church Road and come out behind the football field end zone. Some want him to cul-de-sac it. A 2200 feet long commercial cul-de-sac is a bad idea. Hutchinson's idea is the correct one. The Gluckstadt folks complain about traffic, but then fight against things that will improve traffic flow. Everybody thinks they are a traffic engineer. They should let Hutchinson build his road to have entrances on both Church Road and Calhoun parkway. And I am a traffic engineer.

10:43 has drunk the Pelosi Kool-aid by the gallon. By the way, tell me where 50 'Hispanics' are living in Madison. We have no apartment buildings in Madison. And if you think all these people (or even 8% of them) are here legally, you're nuts.

"Oh, but they're such sweet, short, gentle people simply wanting to lay bricks and roof-shingles and head over to Western Union". Right. Watch the news, listen up, read, Google...learn something about the wave of rapes, murders, DUIs, gang formations occurring nationwide by illegals coming quickly to a neighborhood near you.

Meanwhile, ask your HOA to sponsor a recruitment campaign to bring in three or four into your hood. We'll wait.

Master brick layers indeed.

It doesn't matter what the appeal entails...any appeal throws a glitch into the entire incorporation effort and all its puzzle pieces.

to 4:47....... i see you are worried about "the waves of rapes, mirders, dui s, gang formations"................ well, in the mean time , until the "waves" arrive, why dont you see what you can do about all the homegrown mississippi herion addicts, crystal methheads, crack smokers and all the rest of the tattoo white trash troublemakers that overrun the central mississippi area. i was a criminal prosecutor for 30 years and it was your home team were the frequent fliers in my court, not immigrants, legal or illegal.

10:43 here, in response to 4:47.

I can tell you have never set foot in Mexico, are not personally acquainted with any Latinos or Hispanics, and read Trump tweets while wearing your tin foil hat. I have traveled extensively there for 50 years and have observed first hand who they are and how they work. You have not. You are ignorant in addition to being racist.

There are some Hispanic families living in my area. They have jobs, own their homes, their children attend public schools, and they are welcome here. However, the white and black trash Americans living in this area, usually in trailer parks, are NOT welcome. You can keep them in Madison County with you since you prefer to surround yourself with those kinds of Americans.

Gangs, crime, DUIs, etc. occur in every population including white and black Americans. I'd suggest you examine legitimate prison statistics, assuming, of course, you can find them on Facebook which apparently is your sole source of "information", to ascertain incarceration rates for ethnic groups. Then you can try to speak with some degree of authority. Until then, you're just another blowhard racist who is afraid some hardworking person will beat you out of a job or will perform the job better than you.

Look at construction sites. Who is doing the brick and stone work? How many houses in Madison County have brick and tile work done by Hispanic workers? Who is framing and roofing the buildings? Now compare the quality of "American" work with Hispanic work product. Which is better?

Do you believe that American citizens of Hispanic heritage are also gang members, drunk drivers, rapists, murderers as you claim non-American Hispanics to be? What is it with you? Do you just hate brown skinned people who come from a country renowned for its craftsmanship and cultures because you are scared of them?

I support lawful Hispanic immigration to the US. I do not support illegal immigration here any more than Mexico wants Americans illegally invading their country. It works both ways.

I moved to Gluckstadt to be out of a city. I have cable tv, fire protection the sheriff office does a good job the way I see it the city of Gluckstadt has nothing to offer but higher taxes. Water and sewer is owned by Bear Creek. I think it’s a waste of money. The only thing Gluckstadt needs is a grocery store because I am tired of driving to the city of Madison to grocery store that is out of everything.

Need a Grocery Store said...

If y'all in Gluckstadt want a great supermaket, lobby Publix to build there and give Kroeger a little competition, as they need it.

The point man for Publix development in this area ia Mr. Tom Renne Tom.Renne@publix dot com (public information). I have e-mailed him, and as the saying goes, the squeeky gear gets the grease.

Yellow Rose said...

7:47 - Most of your post is simply made up crap. But you knew that. Where are all these Hispanic families living in your neighborhood who own their own homes?

And of course most of the construction crews include Hispanics. Nobody has claimed otherwise. But, how many of them are here legally. Of course to people who think like you think, that doesn't matter, as long as the job gets done. If, during your fifty years traveling in Mexican villages, you had asked some of these artisans down there why they didn't build up their own country, you could report that here too.

BTW, the only 'trash in trailer parks' in Madison County are 100% illegals from south of the border, not your white and black folks. At least 350 of them. Could be 500. We won't know the number until ICE shows up with a bullhorn at 4:00 a.m.

7:47 here in response to 12:59.

Nothing I said is made-up crap. I will not identify where Hispanics live in my area because I fear racists will target them. If you really want to know where Hispanics own their homes, go look at the land records in the tri-county area. It's pretty easy to identify Hispanic surnames.

I don't know how many Hispanic construction workers are here legally. Neither do you. But I do know that they do good work or else they would not be hired and retained to perform the work.

Mexican craftsmen have and continue to "build up their own country". Why don't you google photos of the thousands of hotels,restaurants and buildings in the Yucatan and Baja, all built by Mexicans. Trump even wanted to build one of his gaudy palaces in Baja but the real estate market fell apart and he had to file another bankruptcy. He settled confidentially with investors for his Mexican hotel project who sued him for fraud and breach of contract. He seems to have hated Mexicans ever since.

Are you aware that the population of Mexico City is larger than NYC? It is a huge, cosmopolitan city with beautiful buildings built by, you guessed it, Mexicans.

Mexico has a problem with corruption. Like the US increasingly has. The political corruption is one the main reasons Mexico remains poor and its people seek a better life for their children here. Mexico also has a problem with America's love of drugs. It fuels the illegal drug trade and drug cartels. If we want to stop the drug trade, then we should do something about American addiction.

Provide a source for your statement that "the only 'trash in trailer parks' in Madison County are 100% illegals from south of the border, not your white and black folks." Now, THAT is pure crap.

I wonder if the objection to the road extending to Church is being objected by Gluckstadt’s Mayor and Alderperson that live in Germantown subdivision? It’s time for these appointed people to step up and make things happen and to stop bashing people.

Anonymous said...

8:34 - Your hatred of your president permeates your post to the point of making the whole thing nonsense.

If you ever travel up to Madison County, make an appointment with the high sheriff and ask him how many of the residents of 'Little Cuba' are here legally? You mumble when you have a mouth full of crow.

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.
