Stokes goes too far

Jackson City Councilman Kenneth Stokes crossed the line today. WLBT reported:

Airport makes more money but traffic falls.

Airports.  Did someone mention Airports? The Jackson Municipal Airport popped up in the news this week as the Jackson City Council learned that Senator Josh Harkins will file a bill in the 2016 session of the Mississippi Legislature that will alter the governing board of the airport.  The airport is currently governed by a board of five commissioners appointed by the city of Jackson.  The bill will replace that board with a seven-member board representing Hinds, Madison, and Rankin Counties.  Josh  would appoint the members.

Make no mistake, this fight is going to be a battle royale.  However, JJ is going to provide a snapshot of the current state of the airport as presented to the commissioners earlier this month. Most of the loudmouths opining on both sides of the issue have no clue as to what goes on at the airport.  They should read the rest of this post if they want to learn.

Star Wars blast from the past

Does anyone remember this Star Wars trailer? First one ever and it was not exactly polished. Speaking of movies, has anyone noticed problems at Malco? Went last week to a 9:00 PM show. No cokes or other soft drinks. Popcorn stations were out of butter and popcorn salt.  One kid running a cash register while others were just walking around doing whatever. Several other people said they experienced the same problems on other nights.  It was the nicest theatre in the area. Hope it is not going down.

Changing demographics are a problem. Mayor agrees.

Emails between Ridgeland officials and their constituents show several exchanges over the changing racial composition of Ridgeland.  Several Ridgeland residents complained about "Ridgeland school demographics" and  the city becoming the "new Northeast Jackson".  One email even called the demographics at Anne Smith Elementary School "a problem".  Mayor Gene McGee wrote "You are so right" in a response to that particular email.   The emails are posted below.

Rick Cleveland slams Manning "story"

Many of you are no doubt familiar with a website called The Onion, which produces satirical, often hilarious, “news” stories. I have no problem with The Onion. It sometimes makes me laugh.

Our problem these days is differentiating between The Onion and the countless news outlets, which are serving up ever-increasing volumes of blather and babble that sometimes read like satire but are not.

Exhibit A: An Al Jazeera report last weekend that purported Peyton Manning used HGH, a hormone banned by the NFL, to recover from a career threatening neck injury in 2011.

Can't have anything nice around here.

Update: Ridgeland PD said suspect is held on a $2,500 written bond. He is bound over to grand jury. The crime will be prosecuted as a felony due to the dollar amount. He has not been arrested before by JPD. He was arrested in September for doing the same thing to the horse statues in front of P.F. Chang's.  The suspect is from Jackson. 

Original post:

Can't have anything nice in this area. Some punk decided to go knock the hooves off of the horse statues that populate the fountain at the Renaissance at Colony Park.   A man allegedly used a sledgehammer to attack the horse statues and Italian fountain.  Ridgeland Police were called to the scene at 6:00 AM yesterday and charged Charles Branch with malicious mischief.   The black male is thirty years old.  He is currently a resident of the Madison County jail.  It is not known what the bond for Branch is.   JJ is working to obtain his identity and more information.  See the damage for yourself.  Free-lance photographer Rick Guy shot these photos for JJ

HUD sues Ridgeland; claims city trying to force out minorities

What story is told by these pictures?

Correction: >This post contained two pictures of Mr. Shackelford and a female. JJ misidentified her as Mrs. Thomas. JJ has other pictures of Mrs. Thomas and the women are similar in features. Apologies to Lindsey Thomas and Mr. Shackelford.  The removal of the pictures obviously changes the nature of the story.  We make a mistake on this website, we own up to it and don't bury it on the bottom of page B-18 in fine print.

Journalistus Maximus Jerry Mitchell reported that Madison County Constable Matt Shackleford might have engaged in some questionable behavior.  The story appeared on the front page of the Sunday edition of the Clarion-Ledger.  The article included a picture of the constable holding up a funny-looking plant.  It is not known if he is indeed a horticulturist or has an affinity for plants of the distinctive green-leaf variety.  The story then questioned his actions and relationship with the wife of Lindsey Kirkland Thomas.  Mr. Shackelford arrested Raymond Ethan Thomas after Mrs. Thomas filed charges against him.  The constable later arrested Mr. Thomas for allegedly stalking him as well.  The charges were later dismissed or remanded.   The couple is seeking a divorce.  Mr. Mitchell only posted one picture in his article.  However, JJ obtained more pictures which may tell the Rest of the story.

Rick Cleveland: The last season

The first time Stuart Stevens and his dad went to a Sugar Bowl it snowed. This was New Year's Day 1964. Stuart Stevens was 11 and a dyed-in-red-and-blue Ole Miss Rebel.

That Sugar Bowl matched the Rebels against Alabama. Bear Bryant coached Alabama. John Vaught coached Ole Miss. The Bear suspended star quarterback Joe Namath. But Bama, quarterbacked by future Ole Miss coach Steve Sloan, won anyway, 12-7, on four field goals and seemingly countless Ole Miss turnovers. The game was played outdoors, as football was meant to be played, at Tulane Stadium (heaven rest its soul, and it did have soul).

Young Stuart Stevens, cold and bitterly disappointed, cried. His dad, Jackson lawyer Phineas Stevens, comforted him. It is one of the really poignant scenes in Stuart's beautifully written book, The Last Season (Knopf, 2015).

The lawsuit reveals the true legacy of Ashley Madison- broken homes, sordid blackmail attempts, and what was in reality, an online scam.

Neighbors at one point even created a Facebook page dedicated to him just to monitor his activities.   Young Chambers apparently did not learn from serving nearly a year in prison as he has been repeatedly arrested since he was paroled in June.

    When Alcorn State first offered its head football coaching job to Jay Hopson in April of 2012, he turned it down. What has happened since should be a book and then a movie.

    The Alcorn football program was a train wreck. The previous year's team had won just one conference game. Seven or eight of the top returning players had decided not to return. Fan support? Fewer than 500 fans had shown up for Alcorn's final home game in 2011.

Even posted pictures of his beaten face on Facebook (pun intended).  Well, they say a picture is worth a thousand words.   WREG posted the booking photo of Chris Barnes and lets just say it appears he looks much better in the jailhouse photo than he does in the Facebook photo.

    Rick Cleveland rates the quarterbacks.

    Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Southern Miss all boast 8-3 records heading into the last weekend of the regular season. Ole Miss and State are ranked. All are headed to bowls. USM plays for a division championship Saturday. There's a chance, albeit slight, Ole Miss will, as well.

    This is quite a bit of football success for one small state. It's not unprecedented, but it is rather remarkable.

    Smart football people often correctly say quarterbacks get too much credit for a team's success and too much blame for a team's failure. So let's put it this way: You can't blame Dak Prescott, Chad Kelly or Nick Mullens for much at all this season. They do deserve lots and lots of credit.

    Missouri native Kristy Mitchell was murdered in the parking lot of Logan's on County Line Road last night. The suspect allegedly murdered another woman, and went on a shooting spree that started in Jackson and ended in Ridgeland. Few people here probably knew Mrs. Mitchell. She was a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. Her Facebook profile shows she loved her bassett hound and wasn't afraid to take the ice bucket challenge with her grandchildren last year. She was proud of her son who serves in the Army. Her Facebook posts are poignant when one realizes it is her last day in this world. She  is not another statistic but a victim who came to Jackson.

    Police euthanize five dogs in Gay Street attack

Mr. Saunders is not connected to this story at all.   JJ apologizes to Mr. Saunders.  Mistakes will be made but this website has no problem owning up to them. Comments with his name will be removed. 


    JPD euthanized five pit bulls and pit bull mixed-breed dogs after they attacked a homeowner and his friend late on October 1. JPD said the attack took place on Gay Street in Northeast Jackson.  The homeowner was Perry Richardson.  Police sources say the man was chewed up so badly that he resembled a homicide victim.  The dogs then turned on the owner when he tried to restrain them.  Police were called to the residence.  One police officer said the dogs "were killing machines. They were not dogs."   JPD seized the dogs and later put them down.  This was the second attack by the dogs in six months.  A neighbor stated in an email sent to JJ:

    Courtroom clowns

    There was a rumble in Hinds County Chancellor Dewayne Thomas's courtroom Tuesday.  The lawyers participating in the Farish Street litigation required the "intervention" of the bailiffs after a heated argument quickly devolved into a screaming match.  One attorney accused other attorneys of not communicating settlement offers to the client.  That allegation lit the fuse.  The Chancellor held them all in contempt and fined each lawyer $200.

The indictment states the "attorney in Jackson" was used for wire transfers. However, the "attorney in Jackson" was not indicted.  The indictment states he was involved in the case as Watts would wire large sums of money to his escrow account and then he would wire the money to co-defendant Gregory Warren.  The indictment specifies that 29 transactions were made in 2010*:

    Sponsored post: It's the monopoly stupid.

    by Kelley Williams

    The main problem with K-12 public school education may not be the lack of funding. It's more likely the lack of competition. Public schools are government monopolies. Monopolies are protected from competition. They don't have to innovate to improve to survive. So they don't. They just get ever more bureaucratic and insular. The public school monopoly justifies its existence by its mission: to educate our children. The measure of its effectiveness is how much money it spends, not how well it prepares our children. Spending for Mississippi's public schools has increased every year for 20 years. ACT scores have flat lined for 20 years.

The idea of looking at what happened to other states that placed public schools into a budget lockbox has rarely entered the current debate over Initiative 42. Such a self-absorbed lot, are we. The Louisiana constitution "protects" secondary and public education - at the expense of everything else. Supporters of historically black colleges and even LSU cringe every time there is a budget crunch as higher education suffers while public schools are shielded from budget cuts. The Louisiana constitution states:

    Trying to find a future in the Delta.

    Washington ____ reporter Chico Harlan paid another visit to the Delta as he published another story on Mississippi poverty in the newspaper's Lost Opportunity in the Deep South series: 

    The day of his high school graduation, like so many of the days before, began with chaos. Ruleville Central had pledged to lock its front doors an hour before the ceremony to prevent a crowd overflow, and Jadareous Davis was still at his grandmother’s home six miles up the road, time slipping away. Davis scanned through his mental checklist. Shoes? His older brother hadn’t yet swung by to drop off a pair. Bow tie? Maybe he could borrow one from a neighbor. Pants? Davis wasn’t even sure whether the dress code mandated black or brown, and he called a friend for help.

    War update: British attack French, Krauts bomb England

    JJ is posting old front pages of the Jackson Daily News from the WWII era to give readers an idea of what 1940 readers read on a daily basis in Jackson.  The only way they received their news was through the radio or newspaper.  There was the Movietone news at the theater but it was somewhat dated when it arrived at the bijou.  Most readers have either watched programs or read books about the Second World War.  However, tv and books do not give one a true feel for how it was to live back then and experience war news as part of one's daily life.  The JDN front pages as the war seems more alive as each front page brought a daily dose of news that seems surreal today.  It is a different way of looking at history and one that I think the reader will enjoy.

    Priester was going to release suspect in Kendrick murder. Prosecution: What is a felony-murder rule?

    Judge Melvin Priester, Sr. reduced the bond for Lauren Shell Blackwell to $500 for the charge of Capital Murder in the death of 81 year-old Lee Kendrick at a preliminary hearing last Monday.  The Pearl resident was shot to death in an a vacant apartment at Cedarstone Apartments in Northeast Jackson on August 31.  Blackwell was denied bond when first charged with murder and auto theft.  Judge Priester also granted bond of $500 for the auto theft charge.  He sought to release her on her own recognizance but awarded a bond upon a request from defense attorneys.  JJ obtained a copy of the hearing transcript.  The transcript gives a clearer picture of what did... and didn't take place in the courtroom that day.

    Sweet hauls Morgan & Morgan into court

    The shysters are about to have a civil war.  Dennis Sweet & Associates sued the law firm of Morgan & Morgan in Hinds County Circuit Court yesterday.  Sweet represents a couple who claimed Morgan & Morgan failed to file a medical malpractice lawsuit on their behalf before the statute of limitations expired.  The complaint states the defendant sued St. Dominic Hospital, Dr. Somprasong Songcharoeon, and Mississippi Premier Plastic Surgery after the two-year statute of limitations expired and thus ruined their chances for recovery.

    Bye-bye, Javaris

    It looks like Northeast Jackson hoodlum Javaris Chambers might stay in jail for a few more years.  MDOC filed a petition in Madison County Circuit Court today seeking to reinstate a four year suspended sentence on Chambers.  Chambers lives on the corner of Jamaica and Wayneland. He also runs with a little gang that loves to smash and grab, kick and grab, and commit other acts of crime. These guys are well known to the police of Jackson, Ridgeland, and even Kenner, Louisiana.

    Chambers was arrested last week and charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a concealed weapon.  Chambers pleaded guilty in October 2014 to one count of grand larceny in Madison County.  A second count was dropped.   Madison County Circuit Judge William Chapman sentenced Chambers to serve five years in prison, but suspended the last four years pending completion of a house arrest program.  MDOC records state he was paroled on June 23, 2015.  Ridgeland police arrested him on July 2 for allegedly shoplifting at Dillard's.

It’s welcome wherever it goes (well almost). Customers love it. Kemper is an unpopular unsuccessful experimental power plant. It’s known for design and broken promises, construction mistakes, cost overruns, and broken promises. It’s higher electric rates are an unwelcome disaster. Customers hate it. How could Costco and Kemper have anything in common? Well, try this.

    Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

    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!!!
