Jackson Water System Improves

 The city of Jackson issued the following statement last night.  

The City of Jackson remains under a precautionary citywide boil water notice following complications at the City’s O.B. Curtis Water Treatment Plant. A majority of customers on the City’s surface water system by Tuesday afternoon have water but some are still experiencing low water pressure out of their faucets.

City Engineer Dr. Charles Williams said at a 3 p.m. news briefing that water pressure had risen to 78 psi from about 75 psi early Tuesday morning. This is a sign that water is gradually being restored across the system. (The safe zone is anywhere from 85 to 90 psi)

However, it is expected that water pressure remains low in some areas of South Jackson that experienced outages. Residents are asked to contact the City if they still have no water.

Today, the City began distributing about 10 pallets of bottled water at the Metrocenter Mall for residents in need. Officials will re-evaluate the additional distribution of water based upon the latest updates from the Public Works Department.

Williams said it will take two positive tests from the state Department of Health to lift the boil water notice. That could happen as early as Thursday, he said.

Well, at least they are giving priority to the north east residents who pay their water bills.

Did you conduct a door to door survey to arrive at that conclusion, 7:58? Or are you just making that assumption based on some criteria you would like to share with the rest of us?

Priority to NE residents because that is where Baby Chowke's home on a gated street is located. That's the street with a church across the street where a JPD officer is posted out of sight of the public, because the "ruling class" gets special treatment, right?

75 to 78...woo hoo...happy days are here again, right?

Doesn't change certain facts. Like the FACT someone with their head square up the ass put the wrong chemicals into the peoples water supply ! How in the hell do you do that unless it was intentional. Domestic terror is the buzzword for libbies sooooo what is this ? Gross negligent idiot has been used. Was someone drunk on the job ? Who was the culprit ? FBI involved ? IT WAS DRINKING WATER.

@7:58, haven't you heard?

By edict the Emperor Mayor has decreed that the location of the reservoir and OB Curtis was purposefully selected to advantage Jackson's future white population.

Back in the late 1950s the evil WPS (dare I say Jim Crow whites) looked at a map and chose locations for water service that they knew would put the screws to black Jacksonians for decades well into the future.

Then they sent a letter to all white residents at the time advising their migration from West, South and Central Jackson into NE Jackson and, to a lesser extent, into Fondren and Belhaven. (BTW, the Easter '79 flood was also by design to cover their tracks. These were very smart white people.))

That is why the Emperor Mayor relocated his family into the whitest and wealthiest section of NE Jackson in order to guarantee that he and his family would always be the water beneficiaries of that outlandish scheme now come true.

The Emperor Mayor has promulgated that decree nationally so that the people of these United States fully understand that those bad white people of the late '50s are to blame for the continuing subjugation and oppression of Jackson's majority population.

It is by design an apartheid water distribution system used today as an entrenched and not easily dislodged weapon by whites and will be so by decree for as long as the Emperor Mayor reigns supreme.

That is all.

Come on @8:15 AM, are you really that naive, or are you just a troll? NE Jackson is the only reason that the whole city hasn't imploded.

Improved seems like a stretch.

Their reasons are lame. It would have been more believable if the good "doctor" stated that his dog ate his homework, right?

One should certainly expect to improve when there is no lower level in which to sink.

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.
