Read it and weep: MHA's 990.

Since the Mississippi Hospital Association threw itself into a public records fight that is taking place in the legislature, here is its most recent tax return. Enjoy.

Wow. over $1mm total compensation for Sam and he runs an organization that does not produce one single dollar of GDP. I'm in the wrong biz.

Just think how much the salaries would be if we had a Mississippi healthcare system that was worth a sh!t.

Tim Moore is now the CEO.

I thought Steve Dickson worked for MHA. Why is he not listed on that report?

Dickson is a contract lobbyist, not on staff, I believe. Further, the 990 only details the 501-c6 operation. There is plenty of other money in the PAC, for profit subsidiary and foundation.

KG-can you get access to the remaining other compensations? And/or can you get the 2013 filings that will show what Tim made? You will also see where they've kept Sam on the payroll as a "consultant (showing Tim & others how to rape the association). While Sam, Marcella, Tim, & others may be qualified in their roles, their compensations ($1.7m & $497k for Sam & Marcella) are absolutely ridiculous! They are raping the association & the member hospitals. They and the Board that approved their compensations should be ashamed AND held liable for their carelessness with the financials of this association. The Association exists to further the issues & support the issues of their members. I call for three things-If you are an employee at the association, pass around a copy of their compensation. Leave it on the copier, route it around, etc. to see what the employees who aren't paid like this think! Second-I call for member hospitals to demand the board address this issue by requiring at least a 75% reduction in Tim & Marcella's salaries & @ least a 50% reduction in others. This is only fair. Last, member hospitals should demand a significant reduction in annual dues. When you cut the fat cats' salaries, the Association can afford to reduce the dues. Christopher Epps, Sam Cameron, & now Tim Moore-all about the same in my book.

It looks like MHA's fight should have been to keep their salaries confidential!!!! This is absurd. I would bet there's not a hospital CEO in the state that makes what these fools make. Who approved their compensation packages? They should be required to repay the salaries. Come on!

Kingfish, Please, Please, Please print other over-paid exec salaries! This so so eye-opening. I guess I live under a rock where people work hard & earn a reasonable wage. I must enlighten myself to the all-out theft of some CEOs. Paying these people those high salaries is just not right. How in the world do they sleep at night knowing what they are doing? It's ludicrous.

What would be a fair salary for # 1 and # #2 staff members??

#1 $400k and #2 $300K.

# 1: $250,000 & # 2: $200,000. That would be a generous, yet reasonable salary for the CEO of an association. What they sucked out if the association is unbelievable. Truly...unbelievable. One person's salary of $1.7 million (which breaks down to $144,000 per month)...there's not a person in this state with an IQ greater than 65 that would think that's reasonable. They haven't cured cancer...they run a supposedly not-for-profit association. Someone needs to do something about this. Please post what they paid these leaches in 2013. Sam-if I were you, I'd keep my ass in Point Clear. You should be ashamed.

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.
