The mark of a "smart businessman" ??

Donald Trump not on ballot in Mississippi —yet

Published 9:34 am Thursday, August 25, 2016
A quick trip to the Mississippi Secretary of State’s website to peruse the list of candidates who have qualified to run in the Nov. 8 general election may leave some Mississippians alarmed.
Donald Trump, the Republican presidential candidate — considered the front runner in Mississippi — isn’t on the list.
Apparently, the Trump campaign hasn’t submitted the paperwork necessary to get his name on the Nov. 8 ballot in Mississippi.
Anna Moak, an attorney and interim communications director for Secretary of State Delbert Hoseman’s office, said the certificates and petitions needed to get on the ballot have yet to be filed with the State Board of Election Commissioners.
However, the Trump campaign still has some time — until Friday, Sept. 9 at five p.m. — to get its paperwork in.
Paperwork must be filed “by 5 p.m. not less than 60 days previous to the day of the election,” according to Mississippi law governing presidential candidate qualifications.
Moak said once that paperwork is received, the 2016 Candidate Qualifying List on the website will be updated.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign has filed its paperwork and Clinton and her running mate, Timothy Kaine, are on the ballot as the Democratic candidates for president and vice president.
Trump was in Jackson Wednesday night for a rally and a private, $1,000 per plate fundraiser. An email to Hope Hicks, Trump’s press secretary, seeking comment has not been returned..

Marion Christopher Barry, son of late DC mayor, dies from apparent overdose



Marion Christopher Barry, the son of the late Washington D.C. mayor Marion Barry, died early Sunday, authorities said. He was 36.
The Washington Post reported that Barry died from a drug overdose, but officials have not confirmed the cause of his death. A police report said that Barry had stepped out to smoke the synthetic drug K-2 along with PCP. Barry returned to his home and “suddenly dropped.”
According to the paper, Barry was found unconscious by his girlfriend and was taken to George Washington University Hospital. He was pronounced dead around 2 a.m.
Barry’s friends told The Post that he had struggled with drugs in the past. Barry failed to win a seat in the Ward 8 Council last year after his father had died.
“My heart is broken,” Barry’s stepmother Cora Masters Barry said in a statement. “I am in shock. The news of his death is beyond comprehension.”
Barry’s campaign manager Liz Matory said that he was planning his next move coming off the loss. She said he was still dealing with the loss of his father and a close friend, A.J. Cooper, who died in 2014. Friends said Barry was coming to a crossroads in his life and was feeling alone..
Barry was in the middle of a move to a new apartment, according to The Post. He and a friend had rented a moving truck and gathered his belongings to move to the new place. However, the landlord of the new apartment said at the last minute he didn’t want any new tenants.
"There’s so many things that are broken. There’s so much stress on his mind and spirit,” Matory said. “By losing the house, he felt another loss because that was his place that he’d go to remember his dad.”
Barry recently lost the home of his late father because he couldn’t keep up with the house payments.
Barry is survived by his grandmother Polly Lee Harris.

Bail and Other Things By The River: TWO MORE ARRESTED IN VICKSBURG SHOOTING

TWO MORE ARRESTED IN VICKSBURG SHOOTING

The fourth man charged in the shooting death of Jerome Rankin will remain in the Warren County Jail without bail.
Warren County Judge John Price Thursday denied bail for Andrew King, 23, 280 Curry St., after an initial appearance in County Court. King’s family attended the court appearance.
King is charged with second-degree murder and three counts of aggravated assault in the Sunday shooting that left Rankin, 22, of Vicksburg, dead and wounded three others. King is accused of being one of the shooters in the melee.

His arrest was the fourth in the shootings, which occurred after several groups gathered in the parking lot of the Kangaroo Express at the corner of U.S. 80 and Mississippi 27 in Warren County. Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said Friday two more people were arrested Thursday in connection with the shooting.
Soloman Harris Jr., 27, 2828 Grove St., faces a charge of one count of aggravated assault. He was being held without bail in the Warren County Jail pending an initial appearance in County Court. Another man, Malcolm Robertson, 25, 100 Hilda Drive, is charged with one count of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. Price denied bail because Robertson was on probation for another felony charge.
Tuesday, Price denied bail for three other suspects charged in the shooting: Erick Leamont Smith, 22, 314 Linda St., Don Cornelius Bell, 22, 1315 Fillmore St., and Ricky Lee Perkins, 17, 824 Polk St.
Smith and Perkins are each charged with one count of second-degree murder, one count of drive-by shooting and three counts of aggravated assault. Bell is charged with one count of second-degree murder and one count of drive-by shooting.
At King’s initial appearance Thursday, Price cited the ongoing sheriff’s department investigation into the shootings as his reason for denying bail.
Louis Coleman, one of King’s attorneys, told Price King had not been trouble before outside of a misdemeanor offense. He said his client was a certified welder, worked at the Vicksburg National Military Park and had a job waiting with International Paper Co. in Baton Rouge, La. He said King voluntarily went to the sheriff’s department Monday to give a statement on the shootings.
He asked Price to consider bond and ordering King to wear an electronic bracelet on his ankle, adding King’s family would help ensure he would remain in town.

Deputy Warren County coroner Kelda Bailess said Rankin was pronounced dead at 4:25 p.m. Sunday at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
She said Rankin’s body was taken to the Mississippi State Crime Lab in Jackson for an autopsy.
Pace said two of the wounded people remain in the hospital and one has been released.
Anyone with information about the shooting is encouraged to call Central Mississippi Crime Stoppers at 601-355-8477, Pace said.
Callers remain anonymous and do not have to testify in court. Crime stoppers will pay a cash reward for information leading to the arrest of a felony suspect.
The shooting occurred about 2:15 a.m. Sunday after people gathered in the Kangaroo parking lot after several nightclubs in Vicksburg closed. An argument began and shots were fired by several people. All of the wounded people were adults age 20 to 27, Pace said.
He said when deputies arrived at the scene they found one of the wounded victims still in the convenience store parking lot. He was taken to Merit Health River Region Medical Center by ambulance.
The other victims were taken to River Region by private vehicles. All were later transferred to University of Mississippi Medical Center.
