 There was apparently some housecleaning at the Brandon Poh-lice Department last night.  The agenda for the December 18 meeting of the Brandon Board of Ealdermen states:

Looks like some problem children are gone.

Notice the item below the one Kingfish has circled. Why send the top two fire-dogs 200 miles north for Fire Instructor Training when that same training occurs right there in Rankin County?

Oh, I almost overlooked the fact that this is sort of like a small vacation with a meal ticket for several days up in the northern city of Southaven.

Motion to attend is approved! Next!

Don't know anything about the first two officers. They could just be moving on to a new department, state, change of career, etc etc.

But Marshall Pack? That cat should have been fired from MHP 10 times over but he was well protected due to knowing a lot about other going ons at MHP. Promoted over more qualified people. Writing fake tickets. Kingfish has documented both.



Hopefully that is the end of a very tarnished career for Pack.

They will be immediately hired by some podunk uncertified PD in a backwater town with a population of 1,000 people where they can harass/bully the residents.

10:41 LOL. Like going to Southaven is a vacation? If that training was available at the Rankin facility, I’m sure they would rather go there. Southaven is not a vacation spot.

Southaven, also known as South Memphis.

When was the last time you were in Southaven, 12:04? Tons of really fabulous places to eat in Desoto, Marshall and Shelby counties, the world's 7th largest pyramid housing Bass Pro 12 miles to the north, world-renowned BBQ places in abundance, Beale Street, things called 'concerts' scattered about...shall I go on? All on the employer's dime.

Of course if they were to attend this, ah, training at the Fire Academy in Pearl, they could always eat at Jerry's Fish-house down the road or grab a cold brew and service station hot-dog on most any corner in Brandon, Pearl or Flowood on the way home to watch TV.

Let it be noticed that the High Chief put himself and his second in command up for this, ah, training.

The Mayor left the MS Fire Academy to be Mayor. Maybe he doesn’t want to send money there. Otherwise it makes no sense to send them off if the same course is taught in his backyard.

10:37 --- evidently the person before you, at 10:29 failed their fifth grade civics class and doesn't understand the difference between a Board of SUPERVISORS and a Board of ALDERMEN.

Yes, RANKIN COUNTY will have a new board in two weeks, but last time I checked, the Brandon Police Department is controlled by the CITY Board of ALDERMEN, which as you and I know, ain't changing any time soon.

Some people don’t realize how continuing education credits work…

5:25 - Nobody has indicated the 'training' is not a good thing. But I didn't know 'continuing education credits' applied to municipal department heads.

I believe the point being made is why send them two hundred miles north with a city credit card IF the training is offered at the state fire academy?

Employees of gov't agencies play the per diem game like a chess master. Live in Gulfport, work a job in Corinth. Score the per diem (room and board,) and travel on the company dime Monday morning into work and Thursday evening on the way home for a full 40 hour "work week."

This is the MDOT way.

I did not realize the Southaven was a vacation spot. But, I guess if you live in Brandon, Ms., anywhere would appear to be a vacation spot. Maybe the law enforcers up there don’t randomly beat up people.

Well the last Chiefs convention at the golden nugget Pack drove how from the coast picked a woman who is a coach up in Hattiesburg and drove all the way to Pearl on a Wednesday to simply have softball practice with ten year olds, IN his city vehicle. The couple then both returned to the coast, visited a bar before going back to the Golden Nugget. Some things never change. It’s on record where the city of Brandon paid for pack and dearman to go to the precious new chiefs class last January however that was boring and to close to home. I’m assuming golden nugget must have been a blast!

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.
