Over $39,000 Raised to Help Deputy's Wife with Cancer Expenses

First Responders of Mississippi presented the wife of a Rankin County deputy with a $39,082 check yesterday. The money was raised during a September fund-raiser to help defray the medical expenses of Jackie Evans.

Mrs. Evans beat breast cancer several years ago but the cancer returned this year and is at a level of stage four. First Responders set a goal of $10,000 for the fund-raiser. Rankin County Chief Deputy Raymond Duke said "the total far exceeded anyone's expectations and is just a prime example of how Rankin County comes together to support one of our own."

It's good to know people still care about other people. The poorest state gives the most.

This is very sad. You would hope that when someone gets sick, they would be taken care of without the threat of financial ruin hanging over them. Good on her community for stepping up when the Politicians left her out to dry.

Fundraiser now ongoing for mother of the Greenville football player whose neck was broken in game Friday against Madison Central. He's currently on a respirator at UMMC with two broken vertebrae.

7:34 - Are you suggesting it's the government's responsibility? Even if it WERE, the government has no funds after taking care of illegals and recalcitrant democrats.

7:34, you are beyond ignorant even for this blog. Are you going to decline social security, Medicare, etc. when you qualify. Doubt it.

Aren't the Rankin deputies provided with medical insurance?

I’m not in the Sheriff Dept but yes idiot they obviously have health insurance. With all the amount her insurance doesn’t cover, mri’s, scans, blood work on top of many more things office visits they go on and on. You must not know how crappy health insurance is today. Plus she has not been able to work and go thru chemo and everything else she’s been thru. Unfortunately we don’t pay our law enforcement officiers what they deserve. Jackie is a very shy grateful beautiful human being. They needed little help his fellow officiers and friends just tried to make her worries about money get better.She has beat 1 cancer she can fight this one with all of us behind her! Love you Jackie!

3:46 PM, bless your heart, but my question was based on concern, not cynicism. My concern is that the deputies aren't provided or have access to adequate health insurance for themselves and their family members.

I am a retired/disabled LEO, so again, bless your heart.

Sorry for blasting you, people think our law enforcement make 100’s thousands a year. They should but they don’t. Poor Jackie had breast cancer years ago and now spread in her body. If you don’t know her she is very reserve, always there for her friends. She was there for me when we worked together and I got pushed out of my position. On top of this she is very Godly person and that’s so important. I’m so happy with this money they can breathe. Didn’t tell you she has 3 kids, one 4 yrs old. Please pray for my friend!

8:54 AM, we're good, and we will pray for her and her family.

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.
