Well one of those sissy ass Belhaven Democrats need to get off their ass, get a chainsaw and clear it....or are they waiting for the "government" to do it?

No one has a chainsaw ?

I guess no rednecks with chain saws live in that neighborhood. If so it would have been gone by now.

Just pray about it and it’ll go away. Duh

One man’s road hazard, is another man’s firewood...

Redneck in Belhaven, Poulan owner said...

845, I'm in B'haven. Good redneck from way back. Have two chainsaws. But wanted to spend my Easter Sunday at church and then with my family.

Tree down can wait til Monday. Plenty of ways to drive thru the hood without having to take this particular block. What's KF got his arse in a wad over this about? Or any of the rest of the bitchers? How many of you even drive this road once a month, much less daily?

If your chainsaw is a wussy Poulan ain't no way, no how you're a redneck.

After Katrina, 5 redneck chainsaw amateurs were killed by chainsaws.

Meh, I clean up messes like this on my property after every rain.

Not to worry. The mayor will appoint a committee today. they will quickly hold coffee and donut meetings and come up with resolution.

City releasing a rfp soon on how to best handle the situation

My understanding is that the nearby neighbors' frustration is due to the fact that this appears to be Belhaven University's tree that fell (hence the "Blazer" reference), yet BU has done nothing to clean up "their" mess. I am a woman living in the neighborhood and I own a chainsaw myself--but my own yard is enough of a mess after last week's storm! If this were an elderly neighbor or someone else truly needing a hand--sure, neighbors would step in. And, for my part, I generally appreciate BU as a neighbor. A neighbor with their own grounds crew, though! Come on! They should pick up their own mess!

I would remind some of you that Easter weekend is a time when families gather. Some leave town to visit and some have family and friends come to visit.Children are excited and hunt eggs and people gather at places of worship. Family and worship come first for some and the sound of chain saws might not be a welcomed interruption.
I also know that some neighbors are too old to use chains saws, but are nice enough to assure their neighbors that a tree service has been contracted and will take care of the problem on Monday.
That the above didn't occur to many of you is really sad. Is your first assumption always negative and angry? How miserable that must be.

If a tree falls and no one hears it, does it make a sound?

I'm not sure, but a bunch of morons will definitely blog about it.

The tree was on Belhaven University property so it is their responsibility to remove I would assume. This no doubt happened Thursday afternoon after the school was already all but shut down for Good Friday. It looks like someone, whether BU or neighbor, trimmed some of the top branches and piled them on the left side of the street so it could be driven/walked around. What's the big deal waiting, no doubt, till today?

The point is, Belhavan "University" has grounds and maintenance personnel who could've quickly cleaned up the mess. The tree was on BU's property and fell unto the public right-of-way. If Belhaven was a good neighbor, they would've removed the debris from the street in short order. But Belhaven is not a good neighbor - they're a crappy neighbor, as has been demonstrated time and time again.

Hey "Redneck in Belhaven, Poulan owner"

This happened Thursday. What's your excuse for not clearing it Friday? Saturday?

Anonymous said...

It may be this: If you clean it up yourself, you have to cut trunk and large limbs into manageable pieces and stack them in order to have it picked up free. If the City does it, there is no charge after a storm.

Belhaven resident here - The tree that fell was located on Belhaven University's property and is their responsibility. Some neighbors managed to cut a small lane late Saturday. I don't know if the school was closed Friday for the Easter weekend but surely someone on staff could have called a tree removal service by now - since it's been on the news since Thursday PM...

Not to be confused with Blazer Brass.

Sorry all you legal eagles. I'm working on a personal tree claim this morning. If a neighbors tree falls onto your property, everything on your side of the property line is your problem, even if it hits your house. In this instance, the city is responsible for the street and right of way removal, not Belhaven. That being said, a good neighbor like Belhaven should jump on it and get it out of there.

If my tree hits your house, call your insurance agent. That's what you pay them for and that's what the law says.

belhaven might not have the money to pay to remove it...

You're joking on Belhaven not having the money to pay it, right?

1:57. Nope. Look at their financial statements..but hey, they are in better shape than Millsaps...

I feel really bad for the tree. No one has expressed any remorse for its demise.

So, who is responsible for the worn-out, beat-up street?

I thought Greymont was north of the Coliseum.

Friday was Good Friday to those of the Christian faith. Perhaps Belhaven Univ. was celebrating the death of Jesus, as foretold by the Jewish prophets?

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

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.
