[quote]It's a one lake plan, not two lake plan. [/quote]I am no hydrologist but the one lake plan I saw kind of made more sense than the two lakes and way less expensive. But, someone will screw the pooch before this gets to fruition because, you know; it's Jackson....

re: This is Jackson's last chance to turn things around - Diamondawg
anc - I applaud your optimism and I really wish Jackson could turn around as I lived there and worked there for many years. Moved to the suburbs a long time ago but it was mostly for schools. Back then, safety was not as big an issue. But, I just don't see how you reverse the years of bad management...

[quote]I won’t even stop and buy gas in Jackson when I pass through on the interstate. [/quote]Hyperbole much? I went into inter-city Jackson at Poindexter Park (about as bad as it gets) with a church group last Sunday to feed the homeless. I was packing but it's not scary enough to be too scared to...

[quote] The Two Lakes Plan is going to be back later this year. What is this? They gonna build some lakes in downtown Jackson? [/quote]Last I heard (and it's been bantered about resulting from the 79 flood), but it's a flood abatement plan to reroute, widen and dredge but also build a ...

[quote]Jackson needs to sell JAN to the State or Rankin County. Use that money to fix water, sewer, and roads. [/quote]I have heard that suggested, too. Since the state legislature passed the regionalization bill last year, I am not sure there is an incentive for anyone to buy it (although the FAA h...

The biggest buildings left are largely municipal, county and state owned, churches or not for profit hospitals(I assume the property tax exemptions vary for each). Not much property tax revenue from any of that. ...

[quote]That might not have been a bad dodge by the city. Is Bernie still in prison? [/quote]It's more about the anti-business precedent that was set rather than how Bernie and WorldCom/MCI fared. I do not know about Bernie but I could probably Google it. I've not heard of his release....

[quote]Doesn’t Jackson have a BLM type young mayor who wants to penalize white businesses? [/quote]He is young and pretty radical but he has actually surprised me a bit with his willingness to at least try. On the business part, they have been anti business for quite some time. When Bernie Ebbers...
