No-Show

Guess who didn't show up at the Pelahatchie Board of Aldermen meeting last night?



The Mayor asked a Rankin County court to remove all five Board members two weeks ago.  It is natural to wonder how she would face the Aldermen and Alderwoman she wants to kick out of office.  It appears she isn't going to face them.  However, her lawyer did appear at 6:30 and serve some papers on the Board.

Can't wait till election day comes up to kick her butt outta office!

The title to this should be changed from No-Show to Shit-Show.

If you don't kick them all out, you are part of the problem. Governor should dissolve the whole thing and put them back in the county.

I vote to give Pelahatchie to Scott County. Rankin doesn't need that drama. We already have Robinhood Lakes.

She’s actually right on this one. The state law is clear on this type of governance.

I'm with her.
Took an outsider to uncover the assumed privilege and dishonesty of this board.

Do we know if any of the defendants have filed an answer or any other news on the state of the case?

Do your job said...

12:48 and 1:34. Do you think she is correct in not showing up to the board meeting to DO HER JOB. The job she was elected to do. Will she not show up for any more board meetings while her lawsuit is pending? DO YOUR JOB!! If you don’t know how to do it, ask somebody!

@ 2:02

She was probably still in justice court receiving another judgement for stealing credit cards.

For a state that touts it’s alleged small government conservatism, we are quite possibly the most over governed state in the union. Why does a 1,300 person shit again on the side of the road need a city government? What do they do (ok anything they do they do it poorly apparently) that a county board of supervisors and county sheriffs department couldn’t do just as well? What a waste of money for a crap town like that to have a city hall, a board of aldermen, a police chief, it’s own police force etc when all of this stuff could be consolidated with the county.

Between her and the stolen credik cards and the Canton employee who was irrestid and no is running for judge, these womenses think they can break the law and get away with it

@2:59 PM - it is about "rice bowls," and power, and jobs for unqualified people who otherwise could not find similar paying positions with benefits.

2:59 is correct, even if ham-fisted. There may have been a day, long ago, when it made sense for Mill Town to have its own government and law enforcement. But those days are long gone. Unfortunately, the logistics of dismantling a municipal infrastructure complicates things tremendously. It's not as simple as "disband it and give it to the county." For two quick reasons, the county is not in the water business nor the sewer business, both of which are present and operating. The city has outstanding debt obligations (bonds) that must be repaid, for another example. Could the hurdles be overcome? Likely.

State government is ready to take over failing school districts but when it comes to failing municipalities and counties they turn away with indifference.

5:22,
I'm glad they do turn away. There is no need for the State government to get involved in this hot mess. Grown ups need to follow the rules and figure it out. The State government can't handle their own messes much less get involved in every small town mess in the State.

The state is taking over the airport.

Surely they can take over a city where the aldermen are alleged corrupt ridden under the law.

Cynical Sam said...

Maybe she "called in sick." It could happen.

Anonymous said...

Per advisement of counsel, she likely didn't show for 1) symbolic/political theatre - which her constituency will love - and 2) with the pending legal allegations, she can say she doesn't associate with criminals. Stay tuned obviously.....

Ryshonda when I am unable to go to work I have to let them know why I am missing work and how long I will be out. I am sure you don't have to get permission like most working people do. You posted on your social media and commented to the news you were not feeling well. Well, well you looked fine at 6:15 when you and your husband stood in a classroom full of parents smiling at everyone. Be honest and say my child has something I really don't want to miss. You have a bunch of witnesses to this lie. I had some faith in you until this.

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.
