    Omg!

    I find it very unprofessional for a county supervisor to confront the mayor in public over that supervisor's private business. I could see it if he did it as a business owner - but not under the title of Supervisor.

    I do believe the pictures speak for themselves.
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

    Seems to me Mr. Ross is being an a$$hat. While, I'm not taking sides, cause I dont care less, it south's also seem like Mr. Ross has been given ample enough time to cure the conditions sited by the inspection in 2015. It's called tough love crybaby.

    Threatening to basically withhold county assistance from Petal because his dump has been shut down for code violations. He has obviously read "Art of the Deal".

    Those who can need to vote him out of office. What a jerk.

    Anybody who really knows Burkett Ross knows you won't find a better human being....Hal Marx is a well-documented dick on this site and others.

    I don't know Hal well at all, but he has always seemed ok. I have known Burkett for 30+ years and I agree, he's normally a laid back guy.

    If you could see the conditions of the building in question you would probably agree that, with this issue, Burkett is being a real jerk. I guess we all have our bad days, but if you are an elected official and threaten to withhold services over a personal beef, that's not ok.

    Re: Omg!

    Both buildings are a disgrace. I have know Mr Ross since I was a child but the truth is the truth. I was in the bowling alley about two years ago and could see violations of all the life safety and uniform fire codes in any direction I looked while standing at the counter. He should have been shut down then.
    Even more valuable than physical wealth is the wealth of spiritual love.

    I would vote for Chicken George before I'd vote for Ross.

    Above was posted May 19th, it is now August 17th - looks like it has been 90 days since Little-ole-me asked the question and 208 days since the tornado - seems like something shold have been done by now.

    It does looks like some notices are posted in the window.

    That place was an eyesore long before the tornado.

    While I am not particularly fond on Hal Marx he is just trying to get his city cleaned up. It (the bowling ally and skating rink) should have been demolished years ago. It has been bad for a long time and it isn't getting any better. Burkett Ross thinks he is top dog...he needs to be knocked down a notch or two along with his dumps! Just another one of the "good ole boys" who think they can do whatever the *ell they want to do and to *hell with everybody else.
    Let somebody go in that trap and get hurt and see how fast he gets slapped with a big a$$ lawsuit!
