I don’t always…


I don’t always believe stories from Mississippi Power or from its parent Southern Company about the Kemper Lignite Plant. But when I do, it’s because I’ve been kidnapped, tortured, drugged, and forced to watch endless video loops of CNN and MSNBC and Chris Mathews. (Apologies to The Most Interesting Man in the World and Dos Equis beer.)

The chief engineer’s legacy


The Mississippi Levee Board (MLB) was created right after the Civil War to build and maintain levees in the Mississippi Delta. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) took over levee building in 1927. But the MLB, located in Greenville, still maintains them. It has had some famous chief engineers in its storied history.

The PSC and MRC


What do the Mississippi Public Service Commission (PSC) and the Mississippi River Commission (MRC) have in common? Both have presided over multi-billion-dollar project failures. The PSC’s is the Southern Company’s unworkable Kemper County Lignite plant. The MRC’s is the Mississippi River and Tributaries Project (MR&TP).
