Entertainment District

Tupelo, MS

#1 Mar 8, 2018
Steve Holland can not remember getting Tupelo included in the alcohol problem to go cups in the streets for Tupelo. Who called Steve to get Tupelo included? The mayor or the past mayor or the unsupervised director of the main street asst. Of course the mayor and his boss Nettie want to walk around shopping downtown Tupelo with their downtown main street director with a cold one in their hands looking at their great contributions to the dead downtown. New Orleans is a perfect example of the entertainment districts. The next field trip caused by the downtown main street director will be the vacation to Kansas City for the life time achievement award for the retiring director. Have another one for the road downtown main street. Another vacation for the mayor and his Nettie. It is called Buddy LIte or MIller? Who chartered the bus and reserved the rooms?

Take the alcohol out of downtown main street and what would be left? A sober dead downtown? The city of Tupelo has placed a tax burden on the tax payers with the downtown association wasting millions on a few unprofitable merchants barely hanging on. The problem with to go cups and strip joints downtown next to city hall will be who picks up the to go cups in the streets every morning? Tupelo water and light and public have crews assigned to the downtown association at the beck and call. It is time to spend a few tourism and sal s taxes somewhere other than downtown main street. It does not take a field trip with to go cups to see what is going on downtown Tupelo. Now is the time to stop wasting taxes on downtown main street.

How about creating a research center to work on cloning and develop medical uses for pot? Perhaps a computer center to help children learn how to create their own projects and build prototypes? Forget entertainment and leisure.

Out-of-pocket expenses to send loved ones to drug rehabilitation are soaring beyond what many families can afford, especially when addicts go through multiple rounds of treatment. For some, bankruptcy is the only option.

Is it moral to encourage people to spend their tax return rather than investing it?

The downtown main street association can find as many ways to spend and waste taxes as the convention bureau. How much would the city save the taxpayers if the downtown main street association and the convention and visitor bureau were combined in the same building with the overlapping and redundant positions eliminated? Millions would be saved and not the first taxpayer in Tupelo would ever know the difference.
IN The Cups

What is in your to go cup?
Council Members

Tupelo, MS

#10 Mar 8, 2018
Does any of the council members also serve on the various boards representing the tax spenders downtown main street? Do any of the directors drink on the job with or without to go cups? If you are getting paid by the city and taxpayers are drinking from a to go cup in the entertain district, you should be fired for coming to work drinking. What will Nettie and the mayor learn on another paid vacation? Do they not know how to use a to go cup? Do to go cups have nipples? Does an entertainment district promote prostitution and strip clubs.
Press Release

Tupelo, MS

#11 Mar 8, 2018
Who made the photos and released the road trip news to be published on the front page of the stupid Tupelo paper. Where is the news? When will the USA Today fire all the paperboys down on Green and remove the garbage Urinal from the streets of Tupelo.
Council Trip

Tupelo, MS

#12 Mar 9, 2018
The city of Tupelo can find more ways to waste tax funds than Washington. If you do not know what goes on in the entertainment districts in New Orleans, you should resign as mayor of Tupelo. Does the mayor and his Nettie gamble a little while checking out the to go cups in the entertainment district? To go cups is nothing but one for the road. Who issues the tickets for driving away from the entertainment district on a main street downtown Tupelo with a to go cup and drunk as a skunk. Downtown main street Tupelo has redefined the open container law and driving while drunk. Steve Holland can not remember voting for more alcohol for downtown main street. Tupelo is drunk going to church on main street in their cups.
Big Drinkers

The mayor and Nettie and the council have new to go cups with their names engraved as gifts from the. downtown main street association. Downtown Tupelo main has a drinking problem and is a long term burden for the poor tax payers in Tupelo.
Designated Driver

Tupelo, MS

#14 Mar 10, 2018
Was the mayor or the Nettie the designated driver after sipping on the to go cups down at the casino on the sunny beach hours away from their jobs in Tupelo? Oh the bus driver was in his cups too? Those council persons who did not want their to go cups filled stayed home in Tupelo where the work and problems are being ignored by the mayor and Nettie. The downtown main street association has made reservations for all the taxpayers to travel to Kansas City in two weeks. It is a free trip for the taxpayers that are paying all the bills wasted downtown main street including to go cup trips for the mayor and his Nettie.
Drunk Shoppers

Tupelo, MS

#15 Mar 12, 2018
The downtown main street association and the mayor have decided the only way to get a few shoppers downtown on main street is to serve them free alcohol if a few shoppers will visit downtown. The to go cups runneth over down on main and how do the drunk shoppers drive home? Downtown Tupelo has a daily parking maid but plenty of free parking in front of all the stores and bars. In addition, parking is allowed on the side walks near the bars for the convenience of the drunks looking for the motor scooters. How do you drive home drunk from down on main?

The DEA enforces the laws that prevent the selling and taking of illegal drugs in America? What does the ATF do? Who protects Congressman? Who protects Bill Clinton from Hilary?

Laws can only be selectively enforced. People have got to want to obey laws.
Ban Laws

#19 Mar 12, 2018
Most all the laws are broken and the enforcement only creates more jobs that never stop anything. A doctor wants to treat sickness cause healing does not pay the student loans off. Tupelo passes ordinances and never enforces any. A new ordinance for drinking downtown Tupelo while walking around city hall will be voted on next week but the council and mayor needed a field trip to the casinos to determine how large the downtown cups will be. Hiccup and another free trip with Nettie.

Tupelo’s liberal attitudes toward alcohol go way back to 1966 when Prohibition legally ended in Mississippi. The 1st county to legalize liquor was Honds. The 2nd was Washington.!the 3rd, you guessed it was Lee County.
