Advice to Roberts: Don't screw with the deli.  Repeat: Don't screw with the deli.  Repeat: Don't screw with the $*%& deli.

Trying to do any sort of business in Jackson is a exercise in futility. The infrastructure is in shambles, the leadership is low IQ, and the crime is absolutely outrageous. But that's the way Democrats run things.

@ 11:31- "the way democrats run things." Maybe you should look beyond your own limited view. Out here in Colorado, we democrats are running things just fine.

No days off for Madison Jackson haters Highland Village, Whole Foods, Starbucks, Rogue, District at Eastover and the busiest Smoothie King in the city are doing just fine.

@11:56 I don't think you understood 11:31's comment in the proper context.... perhaps the weed has slowed your mental processing.

Trying to do any sort of business in Mississippi is an exercise in futility. The infrastructure is in shambles, the leadership is low IQ, and the crime is absolutely outrageous. But that's the way Republican run things.

@11:56 AM - that is just the opposite of what my many friends in Colorado tell me, so either you are a troll, or you have brain damage from choking on left-wing koolaid.

Bless your heart.

Jackson FY19/20 Q1 sales tax diversion receipts down -4.2%. Look it up.

Nice try, except notice Rankin County. Look at Flowood, Brandon, Pearl, Richland, Florence, etc., all functional and prosperous. The only exception is Pelahatchie and their nutjob mayor.

First 12:41 comment re Republicans... thanks for that. LOL. Otherwise, seems I've read/heard this story two different ways. One says the Fortification location will be a Corner Market (upper echelon), the other says Grocery Depot (lower echelon). Does anyone know which is correct, or did I just get it wrong? I'm excited about Corner Market coming in. If they're good enough for Robert St. John, they're good enough for me! Was never too impressed with the current owners. They did not run as good an operation as Nancy and Greg McDade did.

I disagree. The English Village store is much cleaner and brighter than it was under the McDade's. You can actually walk down the aisles without being forced to play twister. The main aisles are no longer cluttered with gargantuan displays. That deli is a moneymaker and the new owners had the sense to leave it alone.

Maywood Mart stayed about the same.

Cutbacks in SNAP/EBT benefits are really going to hurt any grocery store in Jackson.

I long for the good ol days of Jitney Jungle, Sunflower,S&H Stamps and other good Mississippi companies.

Wow! Just saw this morning that the Pizza Hut between Walmart and Northpark Mall has shut down. That was the cornerstone Hut for the metro area. Bye Bye

Try a positive attitude. said...

All these negative comments.... this is great news for Jackson and surrounding towns. If they turn the McDades into anything like the Corner Market in Hattiesburg, Jackson will be in for a treat. The Corner Market in Hattiesburg is amazing. I take a cooler down whenever I’m in the Hub City.
What’s wrong with Jackson is all these negative people and negative comments.

@4:46 I think the crime and chlamydia is “what’s wrong with Jackson” but maybe some hugs and Avocado toast will fix it.

Bunch of lip-smacking going on. If you are only a naysayer for Jackson or only interested in blaming the political side you don't like, you're part of the problem. Unless of course you don't actually live in Jackson and are blowing out hot air about something that's obviously none of your concern or business.

Sounds to me like you are loitering around the wrong place. Maybe you should go read JFP if you want rainbows and positivity. We are under no delusions about the state of Jackson.

So what? Maybe you haven't noticed, but Pizza Hut has been scaling down and closing most of their older sit-down restaurants all over the area as part of their current delivery/carryout only business model. This one was overdue.

I moved here in 2016 from Chattanooga and the pizza huts there had need downsizing for carry out way before Mississippi. Seems you guys were 10 years behind

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.
