See Colonial Falls in NE Jackson

Why spend money honeymooning in Niagara Falls when you can see the new Colonial Falls in Northeast Jackson?  Fireworks are even provided at night.  How romantic can you get?  Watch the video of the old Colonial Country Club's newest tourist attraction posted below.  Enjoy.

Any chance the rumor I hear about development of a River Walk will come true! They could have those little tourist boats like in San Antonio, or maybe Gondolas like in Venice! River side restaurants and gift shops for those seeking to take an AR16, AK47, or 9mm home with them. Maybe little mobile vendors pushing carts with colorful umbrellas selling crack and wacky-tobaccie. They might even put in a real shooting range over on the golf course to compete with the golf shooting thingie coming to Ridgeland. Maybe the lady at Metrocenter could have her Ferris Wheel and go-cart track moved to the golf course.

LamumbaLand, coming soon! Investment opportunities in near future. Someone likely to make a killing - it could be you!

I hear the geyser at another major leak only appears when the system is at full pressure. Geologically, it is classified as an intermittent geyser.

This is stunning. And not in a good way.

the theme song should be Montell Jordan's 1990's R&B hit "This Is
how We Do It"

That song comes to my mind every time i read about the shines in the CoJ.

Every time I think the ineptitude of Jackson's leadership has finally reached the bottom, they prove me wrong.

Colonial Springs

Shall we gather
Soap for lather
To wash and shave;
Or'd Baptists rather
Use the water
For souls to save?

KF, I know this is your blog and all, and you do a fine job with it, I must say, but if this clip had the Talking Heads version of "Take Me To The River" as background music it would be perfect.

What ever happened to all of those people and equipment looking for leaks?

There are several in Jackson who, as talented writers, could use current events to shape an interesting novel. Perhaps the story could feature a roguish band of camping homeless using the Colonial Falls for private bathing and drinking. One risk is would readers find credible that such a marxist madman mayor with inept underlings exist in modern society.

Water looks cleaner than what comes out of most faucets in Jackson.

The City allowed the situation to purposefully exist so it would water down the sewage discharge into the Pearl. Seriously, ask them. After all, they are smarter than the rest of us, right?

PS- somebody tell Lamumba...Raw Sewage is running along side frontage road just south of Banner Hall into the road adjacent to Partridge Company building... Unbelievable!! This isn't the first time btw.

Paid for by the federal taxpayers, free to the non-rate payers of Jackson.

5,000,000 gallons per day
1,825,000,000 gallons per year
10,950,000,000 gallons total

11 Billion gallons

that is an amount that, approximately, would service the entire city for an entire year, sans said break

The water czar is playing CYA. His two employees looking for water leaks must be the two blind mice.

Not very funny. All that waste and misappropriation. Very sad.

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.

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.
