Dispatch From Pelahatchie (Circus Edition)

Last night's meeting of the Pelahatchie Board of Aldermen meeting was one for the books.  The evening began with an invasion by the Nation of Islam and ended with a hollerin' between the Mayor and an Alderman.  Somehow, the town bidness got done in a timely manner.

The day began with the news that Mayor Ryshonda Beechem found a "rope" hanging from a door in the break room.  She did what folks do in 2019, she ran to Facebook.  She posted Friday:

The media picked it up yesterday and away we went. The police investigated.  It is not known if they took 27 8x10   colour glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was.

Tommy Lyles told police he placed the twine on a hook in the door six months ago when he was Town Clerk.  He found the twine while cleaning out a room.  The twine is used to hang banners.   The cleaning lady told the police the twine had on the hook for at least three months.  The Police Chief, Joe Daughtry, is black.

However, the theatrics continued last night as the Nation of Islam invaded Pelahatchie.  Yup, a NOI crew surrounded the audience during the meeting of the Board of Aldermen last night although at least three police officers were present.  The Mayor left with them when the meeting was over and conversed with them in the parking lot behind City Hall. They stood stoically as the meeting progressed. 

The fun was just starting as Mr. Lyles levied several accusations against the Mayor during the public comments period. (4:40). He asked who are the Pelahatchie election commissioners. He said the Department of Revenue told him the taxes collected at the Muscadine Festival was not submitted. He urged the Board and Mayor to garnish the pay of any public officials who were delinquent on his water bill. The Mayor sat unruffled through it all as she quietly read the latest edition of the Pelahatchie News. 

The Board meeting itself was only twenty minutes long.  The meeting crescendoed and ended with a double forte smackdown between Alderman Michael Adams and Mayor Beechem that lasted another ten minutes.  Watch the entertaining video for yourself.

Lol well they should not pair up with the mayor., she has a lot to give in count of for her lies and fraud if her good people. She has fed a lot of people help pie and when they realize it they will be running off. Her lies and schemes are catching up fast.

I was told long ago, "If you're gonna lie always make sure you're the smartest one in the room". This fool mayor wouldn't be the smartest in a room full of sock puppets.

I don't under stand what a group from the nation of islam has to do at a Pelahatchie Board Meeting. Maybe this is who is going to pay her last court fees since she agreed to pay Ms. Jones for stealing her credit card and not paying her back. She don't live there and gas does cost. Who knew you can make money off a rope used to hang banners. Really hope she enjoys her last two years in office. Her revenge for her mothers wrong doing is truly evil.

@11:16, not a soul in that room was intimidated by those goons in the suits and red bow ties.

Let me give you all an FYI. The NOI should have sent in the FOI. Modus operandi? Call the FBI.

Did you know the FOI are educated K-12 at MUI? Some then go on to U of I and are proud Fighting Illini.

Aye aye.

This whole orchestrated event has been a racist sham by her and her council(looking at you Bellinder). Her aunt was let go(not fired and charged) for stealing money from the police dept. Ryshonda openly vowed her avenge her aunts "termination" and "ruin the town". Many tried to come onto this blog in the early stages when this was going down to tell the real side of it, and it is now coming to light how much of a fool she is. She irresponsible and wanting to throw the race card around. No one wants her gone because she is black, they want her gone because she doesn't know what the hell she is doing. Her whole MO for running was revenge and then her council decided it would bode well to throw down the race card any time she didn't get her way or someone opposed her. Even the AA board members knows she's an idiot. She's trying one last attempt before all the cards come crumbling down. This has been one big dog and pony show and try and bring down this quiet little town using race, when she doesn't even live there. #triedtotellyall

So the racist drama queen brings some thugs from NOI to subtly intimidate folks. That's not exactly an effective way to advance your not-so-hidden agenda.

Glossy photos with arrows....I saw what you did there😂😂

I’m just going to put this out there! This rope crap came up not long after her civil case was made public. The attention was on her too personally so she had to divert it. It has nothing to do with anything!

How was she elected Mayor if she doesn’t live there? Also, if she doesn’t live in Pelahatchie, where does she live? Strange!

The poor little Mayor may need to be more concerned about the "new" jobs that Multi Craft has not created.....

Citizens need to become more informed about what’s going on in their towns, so that they don’t elect someone who isn’t up to the job.

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.
