Rumor has it Mrs Ryshonda locked the cities computers up(water dept for sure) and took it upon herself to hire a company called BBI to do billing at the rate of $100/hr. She had a meeting set up with BII and didn't show up and had the city shut down. She's as incompetent as everyone tried to say when she first took office while her private counsel and everyone screamed racism.

I knew things had been mighty quiet in the Hatch lately. It had to explode sooner rather than later.

I hope they don’t wear masks in spite of science and as a result corona gets all of them.

They need fewer breaths there

I believe the only way the Town will see peace is if she is removed from office. She DOES NOT look out for the "best interests" of Pelahatchie. She's a tattler suing for a big paycheck. She, as a self-described "accountant," doesn't seem to understand the town is broke and is not generating enough revenue for survival, much less her giant paycheck request or the park improvements she's always bitching about. She's exhausting and her few followers continue to spew the same tired venom.

I sense a recurring pattern here. Apparently the only way to get this Mayor's attention is for the board of aldermen, two of whom are black, to threaten to declare a vacancy in the office of mayor. The board of aldermen should probably just make item #1 on their special meeting agenda a standing agenda item for every town meeting over the next 12 months.

@5:13p- For the last few meetings, SHE stayed on her throne and forced the board to spread out in the audience.

@5:41p- I see what you did there... kind of like she did with her continued demand for huge annual pay and huge backpay. LOL!

" two of whom are black "

And that should end her reign once and for all.
Her legal and media plan was just crushed.

Or one would expect.

The Pelahatchie folks would know more about that than the rest of us.

I remember that the cop in Jackson choking that teenager was black too. Had the officer been white then it would be global news.

" they have been out to get the mayor since day one..."

And they should have.

I sorry it's taken so long, but at least we're now seeing action.

Late getting to watch but I didn't see anything about impeachment. Mayor smacked the board around like usual.

So VERY true! Since this used to be my ringtone, I don't even have to look up the famous words of Port Allen, Louisiana Mayor, Deedy Slaughter: "I been witch hunt since day one. I been fighting acquisition after acquisition."

Prophetic, those words! (and applicable, in so many situations)

Vive Ryshonda Beechem: La Jeanne d'Arc de Pelahatchie!

Interesting notice - claiming they are going to remove her from office.

Of course, once they got into the meeting, there was no such attempt made.

Probably because there is no provision for 'impeachment' from office in Mississippi.

Removal is possible under certain circumstances, but incompetence, inability to communicate, inability to run a meeting properly, or any of the other 'inabilities' doesn't qualify.

Would have to prove that she is not a resident of the city (of course that doesn't appear to apply to black legislators and their districts) or that she has been convicted of a disqualifying crime to have her removed.

Too bad, but frankly, the aldermen are not much better. If they handled the business in a more appropriate, business-like manner, they could probably back this crazy woman into some cracks she couldn't escape.

Didn’t the Board raid the Police Fund illegally before the Mayor was elected? Didn’t the Board and prior City Clerk give themselves huge raises using those funds? Didn’t the Mayor turn them in? Seems they just want revenge, and why hasn’t anyone done anything about them misappropriating funds?

Anonymous said...

@9:04p- Nope, nope, yep, and nothing should happen.

There was no “raid.” Anyone who’s kept up with the saga knows the board and previous mayor utilized drug seizure funds to keep the town afloat UNDER THE ADVICE IT WAS LEGITIMATE. They paid the town’s bills, payroll, and kept water flowing. The town is BROKE!

The board makes $250/month just like her. They previously made more, and when the mayor’s salary was cut, their’s was cut too. The cuts occurred after it was discovered the town CAN’T draw from seizure funds to pay their bills. If any of the elected officials CARED about Pelahatchie, they would draw ZERO salary. Regarding the previous clerk’s salary, it is my understanding the person had the experience and expertise to justify the salary. The board voted to pay them, so don’t accuse the previous clerk of wrong doing.

She turned them in all right, but she didn’t “do it herself.” KF has covered the manipulative relationships at play here before. She’s just a puppet for some bitter men.

The aren’t in jail because they didn’t act maliciously. Again, they had been advised it was legit. In the end, the town was handed FREE money from bond companies to reimburse the drug funds. The taxpayers won because they got several months of bills paid at no cost to taxpayers. They keep missing the part where they are flat broke... Also, the way she and her posse threw around words like embezzlement and theft was disgusting!

It’s curious to me that you didn’t ask why the mayor is suing for a salary over 40 times the last mayor’s salary and “back pay” of over $60k? It’s curious to me you didn’t note the mayor continues to complain about not being able to upgrade their park and hold festivals and feel good stuff, yet the town had to BORROW money during the first quarter of the current fiscal year to stay afloat. It’s curious to me you don’t question the mayor locking the current clerk out of her computer because the mayor can’t comprehend a salaried person receiving overtime pay (happens in businesses EVERY SINGLE DAY)... after the wage and labor board EXPLAINED it to her via the town’s attorney. It is beyond obvious the mayor, who controls the strings with the accounting system, is setting up the clerk and board. She put her game on full display at the meeting waving around returned checks for overpaid bills. Those only got paid because they were placed on the agenda and voted on by board. The clerk can’t sign the checks!!

Bottom line... the focus should be image and bringing solid investments to town, but she has turned it into a self-righteous shit storm.

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.
