Just like a STD...

The truth is that you can never get rid of this stuff in a body of water this size. They are going to get bruises for all of the patting themselves on the back.

The truth hurts.

the PRVWSD board of trustees........... wow fish , that sounds like a pretty elegant title. hears the reality .the "board of trustees" is a bunch of unelected political bozo appointees who manage the PRVWSD right out of a chapter of alice in wonderland. this best thing the legislature could ever do is abolish the PRVWSD and hand the property over to the counties to manage. but that will not ever happen because by definition an administrative agency like the PRVWSD is an administrative agency , created by the legislature .and administrate agencies exist so that politicians can hand out big paying , do nothing, accomplish nothing ,political appointments to their cronies.

9:41: It will never clear up if dirty boats are allowed to launch in the water.

Drain it and let's see who all, I mean..., what all is in there.

Will Asian Carp eat the Giant Salvinia? Maybe we should plant Kudzu along the shoreline and allow it to snuff out the salvinia. I've heard that you need to release gorillas at some point to defeat the other invasives.

How much money was wasted & lost because of the PRVWSD? I agree with @9:41. In all honesty, what has been accomplished other than inconveniencing a lot of people.

I bet there are all kinds of surprises in the reservoir.

Cynical Sam said...

I heard that Jimmy Hoffa is in the Rez, but on the Rankin Co. side.

Probably not many surprises in the Reservoir. As bodies of water go, it's very shallow. Average depth is only about 12 feet.

Just what do you and the other Giant Salvinia experts think the PRVWSD should have done? Nothing? I can't even imagine how loudly you and others would have been screaming if nothing had been done. I guess you would prefer that the entire RBR be overtaken with this invasive plant. Before you say it, I don't live on the Rez, I don't fish the Rez and I haven't put my toe in the Rez in over 25 years, but there is such a thing as protecting your investment. The Rez brings mega-bucks to the metro area every year.

DearPRVWSDB: hi.giant salvinia has been a problem in north Louisiana for years. Save yourself years of heartache and wasted dollars by going over there (Lake Bisteneau) and looking to see how the state has failed to address it.

And Jackson/Hinds rarely cooperate with anyone on anything. Remember the police radio fiasco and that is something that is very important.

What the hell has Jackson/Hinds got to do with the reservoir or PRVWSD? This is a state agency!

Concerned Citizen said...

The Rez is done. Might explain why there are derelict houses in all of the neighborhoods surrounding Pelahatchie Bay.

Back when those illegals robbed the Dollar General at knife point, the story included that additional illegals had been arrested at a nearby abandoned home. On the Rez!

Don't abolish the PRVWSD before Sigman and Waggoner get a chance to slide into a PERS retirement.

If you think there are 'derelict' houses in the Pelahatchie Bay area, take a spin around the other side to Twin Harbors. Zero regulations but if there are any, there is zero enforcement. PRV is one giant slum-lord.

Bring The Dock back, and get rid of the floating trailer park!!

11:35 - Where is the 'floating trailer park? 80% of the so called residential area around the whole rez is a virtual 'trailer park'?

Let the State take over. Like the did in Jackson.

'Giant Salvinia'. Sounds like a 1960, B-Grade, English Closed Caption Chinese horror show. Like 'The Blob'. Or 'The Crotch-Rot That Infected Baltimore'. Popcorn in the lobby...

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. 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.
