On the Agenda Today

 Lookie here at what is on the Jackson City Council agenda today. 

The Mayor placed the EPA Emergency Order on the agenda.  Hmmm.... what will he say? He will probably blame some previous administrations or public works director.  Its all administrative in nature.  The city is having productive discussions with the EPA and the EPA is working with Jackson to correct the problems.  They need money for what he considers to be a state responsibility.  OR He will hand off to DOCTOR Williams who will then have to deal with the City Council OR the Mayor could try to take it into Executive Session, which would be total BS if the City Council agreed to do so. 

Stokes, Foote, and Stamps will probably throw serious questions at the administration.  Virgi and Angelique will probably keep quiet.  There is no question Tillman will be out to lunch.  The question is will Tillman be out to breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Banks? He will attempt to sound tough but then yap about having a conversation about the conversation.  

Stay tuned.

I have never been an eternal optimist but in the last 2-5 years I lost what little I had.

Much like at my current government job. I came in with hope and made ardent strides to improve processes, streamline and become more efficient and also to record my employee's mistakes in the hopes of using them as educational tool or in worst cases as justification for employment termination.

And at the end of the day, all I did was create more work for myself.

I had a list of people who do garbage work and no consequences were ever imposed.

I feel like Jxn is similar.

The few people who had hope have given up.
Lazy people who contribute nothing are the accepted norm.

So excuse me if I have zero hope for ANY productive EPA discussion (or any of the other scheduled topics for that matter) to come from this.

We are a world of lip service and hand outs.

@11:12 Are you on break from your government job, or are you reading and posting on JJ while on the taxpayer's tit? You seem to have a double standard.

This post is one of the best and funniest I have ever read. Thanks for all you do in finding these crackpots and jackpots.

The word "DISCUSSION" is applied 6 times in the agenda. Will the meeting minutes include words like "root cause analysis", "corrective action", "persons or departments responsible", "disciplinary action", and "time to cure"?

I’m glad they have JPD and the “appearance of crime” under control and no meetings or discussion is needed on those topics...

In Dante's first draft of the Inferno one of the characters was damned to sit through a single Jackson City Council meeting. He begged instead to have vultures tear out his entrails before his eyes and then be dropped in a vat of burning oil for all eternity.

Is is wrong for me to hope that Kenneth rips Drake a new one today?!

The mayor should be run out of this meeting. What type of "leader" lets an item of this urgency SIT for 14 months and then calls for a DISCUSSION? This item is well beyond both the discussion and ACTION phases.

Will someone of courage on the Council challenge Chowkey for his deliberate and purposeful effort to coverup the EPA report from the eyes of Councilmembers and the public?

Forgive me, but is Stamps a City Council member AND a State Rep? Did I miss this somewhere along the way?

@11:12am - I feel like I could’ve written the exact same post. Being in management in government is probably the most soul draining job in existence. We get the pleasure of “managing” un-fireable bottom of the barrel employees.

That is the lock bet of the year. I wish this could be classified as a sport, because I'd hustle to a Vicksburg sports book and lay everything I have on Lumumba blaming the neglect of the EPA Administrative Order on someone else.

@11:12 I feel your pain. In the 90's I worked in the Roadway Design division of MDOT. I had a 3-person design squad (me and 2 others). One person put forth very good effort. The other one slept all day. I don't mean that figuratively. I mean they literally put their head down on their desk and slept all day. They did wake up for morning break, lunch, and afternoon break. They were in my squad for almost 2 years. I might (I repeat, MIGHT) have gotten 8 hours worth of work out of them in 2 years. There was nothing I could do about it. I told the Roadway Design bosses (Wendell Ruff, Irving Harris, John Pickering) many times. But the employee was not going to be terminated or reprimanded. I left and never looked back. It was a good lesson learned for me though. A very good lesson.

How the hell can you, Kingfish, say they are 'having productive discussions'? You have no friggin' idea what, if any, discussions are being had....and more than likely, the answer is ZERO!

What's really comical here is the fact that Kingfish stirs the shit-pot and then provides the soothing ointment of an alibi (productive conversations being had). Pure comedy!

wow!!!!!! 11:12 actually tells the truth about his government job. never seen or heard that before .

Can someone PLEASE ask the mayor about the $150, 000 given to his sister’s nonprofit “for crime reduction” in 2018?? That money would have funded at least three JPD officers.

This entire situation shows just how little power the council has. They can't do anything about this, except posturing.

2:18 you are one confused, blind blockhead. He was being FACETIOUS. Zero in reading comprehension. Damn Kingfish, do you get many of these?

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. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
