Check Out JJ's Jackson Water Crisis Page

Many readers have been asking for a collection of all JJ posts about Jackson's water treatment system over the last few few years.  The Kingfish is more than happy to oblige and just finished it while watching Marshall beat Notre Dame.  We are Marshall, anyone? The page is divided into several sections:

Click here to go to JJ's 2022 water crisis page.

* EPA Administrative Order & Coverup

* Jackson mishandling of April 2021 fire at O.B. Curtis 

* City & water/sewer finances

* Mayor Lumumba lies about state not paying water bills

* Moratorium on water/sewer cutoffs

* Jackson 2022 water crisis. 

* Siemens project

* Lagniappe 

The daily updates during the current crisis at O.B. Curtis are not included.  Hope this helps.

September 10, 2022 at 6:20 PM, glad you could stop by, mayor.

Good work!

Unfortunately, it will be ignored by everyone from WLBT locally, to MSNBC nationally.

But it is now on the record now, all in one place.

@6:20 what an A$$hole remark.

The only crisis we have is this mayor!!! He declares it all a crisis… garbage crisis… water crisis. Actually people with knowledge and a brain got it up and running in a few days and he couldn’t do it in years. Amazing he still shows his face in public.

@6:20 PM Still posting from your mom's basement, loser?

KF, good job. That had to be labor intensive.

Thanks KF!

Truly Amazing wort KF- Amazing how much work you have done on this over the years- You called it.
The Crisis page is truly a wonderful recap of years of facts!
( I am sure Jackson can support sillier recaps such as The Zoo, JPD,JPS,JMAA,Garbage and even Finance!)
Thank you JJ

If you had a comprehensive timeline, you could sell it and make a bunch of money.

@6:20 you can take all of your "collaborative" (right?) talents (right) and find someone to perform "investigatory" tasks (right?) on this critical issue. Alright.

Thank you so much!

Actually, nobody has been 'asking'. But, 85.6% of those who pay minimal attention have wondered why you continue running 19 separate threads on the same subject.

The earlier record was 14 concurrent 'garbage truck' threads.


The only thing that could possibly be more painful would be six daily articles each from Crawford and Salter, mandatory reading. Well, maybe not quite as painful as the public flogging the peanut-gallery gave 6:20 and the one that bunch of buzzards is about to give me.

I hope the team coming in from EVA'S Office of Inspector General use this new JJ resource for it's investigation of what happened to destroy the water system.

September 11, 2022 at 12:35 AM, come here, let me give you a hug, boo. I know the truth has been tough on you.

You just need to hope that your gang can keep shovel that bullshit. Maybe it becomes large enough for you not to see the truth. You know, like before.

Eating the truth, after years of feasting on bullshit, can be rough on the system.

Lamumba will appear on Face the Nation at 9:30. Wonder what lies he will spew.

Cool. Good work, Kingfish.

Add these two things:
1) Water bills/payments are to be remitted to Memphis, TN (City Services, Dept #07-0006, P. O. Box 1798, Memphis, TN 38101-9715). March 2022 bill is to a new address in Tupelo (City Services, Dept #07-0006, P. O. Box 2819, Tupelo, MS 38803). Why the change? Still not going to the actual City Services (100 Metrocenter Mall, Suite 103, Jackson).

2) August 2022 water bill: "Sanitation rate is $37.00 a month effective August 4th." Hmmm. I thought one of the mayor's arguments about staying with his company and not rebidding was that the prices would jump. Sanitation before this new rate was $4.80 a week/$19.20 per month. Just jumped from $19.20 to $37.

KF consider adding today’s article in the CL by Keith Sharon “How much more can Jackson residents take “ . When a liberal news outlet prints something like this its hard to ignore.The national media ought to have this given to them ever time they start their BS. “ a long time Jackson resident sent his children to live in Honduras to keep them safe”
Ya’ll don’t stare putting some hate on me for saying something positive about the CL till you read the story. I’m a sensitive baby boomer ,RINO, and have a public school education, and my Mother wears army shoes. Read the damn story folks.

That Clarion-Error paywall just makes me laugh. I canceled a subscription to that paper more than 20 years ago and have not missed it for an instant. Nothing they print is worth paying for ass wipe, especially of the digital variety.

Kingfish said...

Well, Mr. Concurrent, you don't have to read the site. I'm quite sure no matter how perfect the site was, you'd find or make up any reason to bash it.

Anonymous said...

Anything from the CL would have to copied and pasted for me. Their paywall is worse than WaPo.

Anonymous said...

For prob 5 years, the bills set forth 4 payment methods — in person, mail, by phone, and online. Once I drove to Metrocenter to make a payment and told the clerks that the phone and online methods weren’t working for me. They all rolled their eyes and said those haven’t worked in years. Paymentus is back up now.

@1157—You would have been very unpopular on a debate team. You show a serious lack of home training not being able to say something without filthy talk.

Anonymous said...

Thank you KF!!! Your hard work and time invested putting this together for us is appreciated!!!! I would love a similar page about the garbage debacle. I can’t keep up with all of it! Who has an update with the garbage? Has Richards ever been paid anything? Why would they continue to work in Jackson if not???

@12:35
Where is your website? If you think you can do better, go for it.
I'm happy with the info we g get from this site and doubt anyone else could do better.

I haven't picked up any free water, prefer to buy it by the gallon. Water handouts to people in Jackson should be gallon jugs;
easier to use for multiple tasks and less plastic.

Your view is accurate but "jackassery" is specifically promoted by JJ. Nevertheless, there are many examples of debate scholarship on this site.

Excellent job.

Please put a link on your home page to your Jackson Water Crisis page (https://kingfish1935.blogspot.com/p/jackson-water-crisis.html).

Too much work went into that and too much good info there to make folks dig for it.

After seeing Maier in Face the Nation yesterday, it kinda looks like he is toast & yesterday news SOS ever enough money and not if but when it breaks again Just like Flint story. Hope he alone is held accountable. He can blame any or everyone as by Washington Post I believe I read he has lost his fan base & followers!

Keep up the excellent reporting, Kingfish. I’ve linked your reports in several discussions. Much appreciated! I also enjoy hearing you on the Clay Edwards show.

My only critique is you need to put a link between the Home and Entries (RSS) in the subtitle bar.

What a dog & pony show Chokwe! I am beginning to have faith in Feds & powers to be. Prayers that even Senator Thompson cares more about citizens of Jackson than saving this Politician and Acting Mayor Chokwe and bailing him out. Lord hear our Prayers for the innocent people of Jackson and open their eyes that the May see Jesus ! Please know voting has consequences & lack of turn out as well!

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. 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. 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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
