Time Magazine mentions Jackson's "Pothole Robin Hood"

In today’s NewsFeed blog, Time Magazine writer Matt Peckham mentions a Metro Jackson resident Ron Chane who’s taking the law (and public works) into his own hands and solving Jackson’s infrastructure debacle one bucket of stolen asphalt at a time.

“Pothole Robin Hood,” as he’s been called in local news reports, got the police’s attention after admitting to absconding with asphalt from Jackson’s road-repair reserves, then using the material — made from oil and sand or gravel — to fill potholes plaguing the city’s streets. His goal? To fill 100 potholes, and according to 16 WAPT News. He just cleared that figure Monday night.
