Oh boy. Time to start taking a different route home. If traffic wasn't bad enough. They should consider doing this work at night.

Completely Byram's prerogative. I have no doubt that voters there will overwhelmingly approve of any and all efforts to detach from the Jackson dysfunction.

While you can't fix stupid, you can certainly leave it. Let's go Byrum!!

Oops, Byram.

It will be interesting to see how they will convince Lake Dockery/Forest Woods residents that water bills are actually a thing they have to pay. Unless of course you are that person who's absorbing your neighbors into yours. Yes, go knock on a door and ask if they get a bill. Sure wish I would have kept all my bills from when I lived there. Byram has turned into a sh!thole in every way. Go to Kroger....worst managed store ever with long lines and rude employees. Burger King ? Forget about getting anything after 7 if you are white. Even ACE has given up on customer service.

See, this guy here said it. Jackson's water department is racist as hell.

Good luck convincing Lying Lumumba the 2nd to agree to sell the system, let alone at market value. That's another big loss of income to Jackghanistan.

Byram is about to annex and it seems certain ones managed to avoid being annexed. Go to board meetings people !! You will pay for the new stuff but certain ones won't.

I would have to question Brookings who is racist to whom. If anything fingers should be squarely pointed to the EPA. Afterall was it not the EPA that forced the suburbs to hook into the Jackson water system?

Ah, good old Brookings - the institute who along with their complicit media comrades drug the country through hell since 2016 with their cooked up Russia, Russia, Russia hoax.

I welcome Byram to build and pay for their own water system. Much like Rankin is discovering, there's no free lunch. Pay what it's worth.

Less for Jackson to maintain.

You've banged that drum ad infinitum PP but nobody in Rankin is complaining.

I happily paid the extra on my water bill in Rankin today.
The reliability and safety is worth a premium to me.

Maybe Jackson will someday learn that actually billing residents for water is required if you want to maintain the facilities.

Probably not.

12:17, annexation and the related property taxes are totally different than municipal water. Taxes don’t fund water services, water fees do.

Interesting question?
Anybody pay Jackson for the infrastructure?
Some did if You lived in Jackson years ago.
We all pay for the water usage.
That grant will need $6 or 7 million in matching funds.
Byram spent 1.7 million on buying 40 acres of land for a municipal
Complex in a prior year.
Guess the reason for 2 square miles of annexation off the Hinds Parkway.

Sooner or later, regardless of the expense or temporary pain, everybody associated with Jackson will and MUST extract themselves from the tentacles that interlace them with the capital city. It will take major surgery in some cases...but it must be done. And this includes state and federal government venues.

How many vessels in the ocean will throw their lifelines to a floating mine?

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.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? 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.
