Mayor Extends Jackson Shutdown Order

Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba issued the following statement. 

Wednesday, c​iting the need to need to address both the pandemic and the economic needs of the city, Mayor Lumumba issued the Sixth Stay Safe Jackson Executive Order.  The executive order, which goes into effect Thursday, August 27th, makes a number of changes to the previous order:

·       It reinstates the Second Amended Stay Safe Jackson Order (bars reopened, limiting the number of customers to no more than 50% of seating capacity, minimum six feet spacing of tables, no early closures of restaurants/bars)
·       Bar top areas are closed to prevent people from standing in close proximity and to ensure social distancing.  This does not prohibit serving alcohol at tables with proper distancing.
·       Allows for Temporary Citywide Leisure and Recreation Districts (This ordinance is posted here) which creates a special city permit process for tables, chairs, and tents to be setup in outdoor spaces that do not violate requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Fire Marshall.
·       Expand the limits on gatherings from 10/20 to “20/50” including parks.  The 20/50 rule limits inside gatherings to no more than 20 people with appropriate social distancing and no more than 50 people at outside gatherings with appropriate social distancing. 

Restaurants, bars, and retail establishments affected by government-imposed and Coronavirus-related capacity limitations may contact the City's Constituent Services Office at 601-960-1084 to request a temporary permit to create or expand an outdoor area for customers to consume food and alcohol and to expand business operations.  Business owners must submit to the City, among other information, a safety plan, sanitation plan, operations plan, and diagram of the proposed temporary area.

They just cannot help themselves, can they? As a restaurant owner in the city, we are doing all we can to stay afloat while our competition in Ridgeland and Flowood do not have to operate with the same constrictions on their business. This admin is deaf (or dumb) when it comes to the needs of the business community. If they aren't careful they are going to hollow out the city...

@10:10 AM, yes the administration of the City of Jackson is deaf, dumb, blind, stupid, incompetent, lazy, racist, etc. when it comes to the tax paying and tax revenue generating citizens and businesses. I know you likely have a lot invested in your restaurant, but I would implore you to move it to one of the suburbs that values contributors to society, as quickly as possible.

Here’s the reason the city’s revenue is down almost $2M

Comeon man. This administration is deaf AND dumb to everything - not just the needs of the business community.

God please help us! This jackass has no clue. Worst part is the idiots who vote for him don't have a clue what to do with a vote and they get big mad when you point out they don't even have sense enough to know HOW TO VOTE FOR SOMEONE TO LEAD THEM. YEAH they're pretty dumb.

I'm looking for something different for lunch today. Tell me where you are located and I will visit today.

I never thought I would see Jesse Lee Peterson on JJ.
The man is the king of friendly banter and is also the most epic living black man in America.

And he would absolutely humiliate Antard in a debate. And he would be nice to him at the same time.

I would open my doors and tell high and tight to eat shit. If he or his goon squard threaten you, I'd file a lawsuit and recoup my losses from the city for this. Y'all are letting him push you around. I'd tell him pull up and we'd have a stand off if I were in your shoes. Thankfully, I live in Rankin County where our leaders aren't pulling this crap. #faqulumumbalite

@10:10 am, hollowing out the city is the goal of left wing commie pinkos. It keeps the folks on their plantation.

Thanks for the link.

I believe I counted at least 14 new . . . "Whereas" paragraphs.
5 or 6 . . . "I Chokwe Antar Lumumba. Mayor for the City of Jackson" statements.

Then I got bored and stopped trying to count.

Gawd I hope that Jackson electorate gives him four more years.
He's just too stuck on himself.

And hilarious on camera !

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.
