Adopt this mutt.

Rescued this Boxer today.  I picked him up off of Country Club, off of Clinton Boulevard.  He was sitting on the steps of an old church for several weeks. Someone who worked nearby noticed him and fed him every day before putting a listing on Craig's List seeking help for him.  He is a Brindle Boxer.  Very friendly.  Jumped right in car and went to sleep on floorboard.  Looking to find a home for him.

He is scratching his skin.... alot.  Fur is thin and filled with dry patches.  Vet gave him full checkup, round of shots, and a steroid shot as well as antibiotic for the skin. That should be fine in a few months.  He received a medicated bath as well and is acting a little happier and friskier.  Just one problem: Heartworm positive.  He needs to undergo a full regimen of heartworm treatment.  Vet said his teeth were fine and he is between 3 and 5 years old. 54 lbs. Email me at  Has typical Boxer temperament.  He is a very good dog.  Responds well to a leash and has been snipped.  $200 to adopt.

Bigger Pie's Kelly Williams: Turtles & Kemper

A myth is a widely held false belief. An ancient Chinese myth says the world is flat and rests on the back of a great turtle which in turn rests on a greater turtle, and so on. It's turtles all the way down. Today this means endless fantasies or fabrications one on top of another.

Which brings us to Mississippi Power's Kemper County Lignite Plant boondoggle. Kemper's fantasy is that worthless lignite can be turned into a syn gas substitute for natural gas in an experimental plant and burned in a slightly modified conventional natural gas plant to produce electricity cheaper than from natural gas.

Kemper's fantasy rests on two other fantasies. One, that the experimental plant would cost $2.2 billion and produce syn gas that would be cheaper than natural gas. Actual cost so far is $5+ billion. No syn gas yet. The higher the plant cost, the higher the fantasy syn gas cost.

Madison County lawsuit: student posting nude pics of fellow student online is protected free speech.

A Madison County family filed a lawsuit against the Madison County School District in U.S. District Court last week after their son was expelled from Germantown High School earlier this year.  The complaint states a female student sent a nude picture of herself to "one or more" students via their cellphones.  The plaintiffs state the school expelled their son for posting the picture online while at school and assigned him to the Academic Options Center. They argue the district violated his rights to free speech and freedom from cruel and unusual punishment.

New Summit keeps climbing.

The sounds of children playing fill the air as New Summit School Headmaster Dr. Nancy New prepares to celebrate the expansion of her school. New Summit serves students who have special educational needs. Some have learning disabilities, some need tutoring, some are autistic, and some are just plain too smart for regular schools. Why a student comes to New Summit doesn't matter as much to Dr. New as does her mission: educating the child to the best of his ability.

Monthly airport update: Delta rises, traffic down

Here are notes and observations from the August meetings of the Board of Commissioners for the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority. The main item of interest for the general public seems to be the market share of the airlines servicing the Jackson area.  I pulled the relevant document out of the board packet and posted it below.  The Southwest tremors continue to be felt as Delta's market share increased from 42% in June to 46% in July.

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!!!
