Century Club Charities Repays Lamar Adams Donations

Century Club Charities returned donations from Lamar Adams and Wayne Kelly to the Securities and Exchange Commission. SEC Receiver Alysson Mills asked U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves to approve a settlement in a motion filed on June 28.

The charity previously returned donations of $28,000 from Kelly. It agreed to return another $56,944 from Kelly and Adams. The motion is posted below.


Kingfish note: Funny story I heard about Lamar Adams the other day. He would supposedly rent vehicles that used the same tires as his truck when the tread would wear down. Yup. He would switch the tires.

I don't imagine that your "funny tire story" is true, KF.

I don't believe that anyone spending what Adams did on hunting camps, propertiees or anything else (ie, large donations), would worry about the hassle of renting vehicles for the purpose of switching tires to save a few hundred bucks.

You sound like a "gossipy" little girl" with your comment.

But such is life, in the world of "just throw it out there and it must be true" environment that we live in today.

Lamar and Wayne were charitable individuals--

Ask anyone that grew up with Lamar in Indianola if they believe the tire switching story was indicative of his behavior when he was just starting out in the "business" world, and I guarantee you they would agree and could tell you similar stories from his bike riding days. Lying Lamar was his boyhood nickname. The tire switching obviously occurred before he hit the big time by stealing from others.

I left the story about the tire switching months ago on this blog. Lamar bragged about it to me the only time I ever met him. This happened in 1990 during a round of golf at Deerfield. I never forgot it and wasn't surprised when the Timber scheme came to light.

What's the update on William B. McHenry? Has he slipped through the cracks?

Century club... just a big group of big money brats from northeast Jackson society. Sandersons yates family. Son in law and daughter live in northeast Jackson as does the rest of metro Jackson elites. I guess they like to give back to feel not so privileged. Also C-spire family NE Jackson as are the family that had 23 million dollar beach house in Martha's vineyard. Jackson Mississippi truly is the haves and the have nots. Meanwhile middle class Americans are enjoying life in the burbs at free schools and renting a beach house for a week.

There is no doubt the switching tires story is true. What this guy did was not a one-off event. This type of swindling is cultivated over a period of time and he was obviously emboldened by the culture here that if you run in certain circles you have a little more leeway on behavior, integrity and clearly taste in homes.

Judging from the “farmers” and “businessmen I’ve met from Indianola, I’m not surprised at all .
Crooks seem to sprout from the ground there. Must be something in the water.

Everybody who isn't enrolled in on-line PhD programs, like you and Tom Head.

Hey "Have Not" at 12:38pm - what is your issue with wealthy people that give back to the community - we should all be grateful for the "Haves" that are currently keeping thousands of people employed in Mississippi while donating millions to the our hospitals, the arts and numerous other charities and churches of this crumbling city. Why don't you ask the hundreds of family members of fallen officers and firemen about the "big bad" century club members that helped them through very tough times when our city could not. If you spent some time working instead of being a "green eyed" monster, you too could be in a position to give something other disdain for your fellow citizens.

The Century Club has raised millions for Blair Batson Children’s Hospital. To question the motives of the members is sheer stupidity.

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.

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.
