Fatality in Spillway Road accident

The Reservoir Patrol issued the following statement. 

Traffic Accident Claims the Life of a Reservoir Resident

Reservoir Police responded to a two-car collision this morning at approximately 6:50 am at the intersection of Spillway Road and Spann Drive in Rankin County.  Reservoir Fire Personnel had to extricate the most seriously injured victim for treatment and transport to Merit Hospital in Flowood, Mississippi where he was pronounced deceased.  He has been identified as Howard Carlton Lowther, 61, of Brandon (Reservoir Area).  The driver of the other vehicle had a report of pain and a laceration but was taken to the hospital by private vehicle.

Chief Perry Waggener of the Reservoir Police Department stated "The preliminary investigation indicates that one of the vehicles turned across Spillway Road from Spann Drive in the path of the other vehicle." 

The accident is still under investigation at this time.

Spann Road is that diagonal road that allows people to cut off the light at Spillway and Old Fannin. It goes behind McDonalds and a convenience store and intersects Spillway at a 45 degree angle. It's incredible dangerous.

A fatality there is not particularly surprising, but it is sad.

Sad; Prayers for the families!

Not sure why that particular location is PRV jurisdiction.

@ 2:11 PRV pretty much bullies, I mean patrols, anything they can get their hands on around the rez. Those glorified mall cops would try to patrol all of Rankin and Madison county if they could.

And they want radar.....

9:11 is correct
What they are is a redundant service which means a waste of $. They do nothing that county S.O, city P.D. doesn't already do. They are a motley crew of misfits and rejects who do little but harass motorists on a few major Reservoir thoroughfares and in the parks, boat landings. P.D. and S.O. openly laugh at them and complain they just get in the way.
2:11, Spillway Rd is on PRV property

I see them riding all the way through Madison now just to take a tour through Haley Creek/Twin Harbor neighborhood. They must have gotten a complaint or two about somebody jumping the speed bump. What a waste of state-taxpayer-gasoline.

Sitisens ArAest: PRVWSD is not funded by state taxpayers. They are primarily funded by leaseholders and campground fees. The least you can do is a little research before you disrespect the officers that would put themselves in harms way to save us... even you...

12:29 - PRVWSD is a state agency. Their law enforcement budget is not funded by the leaseholders. The only way their law enforcement puts themselves in harms way is when they meet Waggener for lunch every day at a local buffet. They're a bunch of cowboys who answer to nobody and they want radar so they can sit around and prey on the good people who have to use Spillway Road to get to and from work.

The construction bonds were paid-off in 1992, and, since that time, the district no longer collects taxes. But, it is a state agency and state tax dollars do, in part, find their way to the operation. Funding relies primarily on annual lease fees from residential and commercial properties within the district for funding. Keyword PRIMARILY. Another keyword is COMMERCIAL.

So quit pissing on my leg claiming the poor people who live around the reservoir are providing all the money for operation of PRVWSD.

1:29; I think you mean to say the spillway is on PRV property. A small portion of Spillway road is on PRV property but by no means all of it. The location of this wreck is a hundred yards east of the McDonald's intersection. I see no need for PRV mall-cops to be involved any more than if the wreck was at Kroger.

Does McDonald's and the drugstore behind it lease from PRVWSD?

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.
