HATE

The mayor tried to mediate the impasse the council and her office are experiencing by suggesting the hiring of an attorney to represent the mayor, to mediate with the council’s attorney. This is a common practice and is the way the city of Mobile handles similar situations. The threat of a lawsuit only arises if the council refuses and continues to obstruct the mayor. The council refused; however, when it came to “come fly with me” Burrell, when his plane was caught in an ethics investigation, the airport authority approved funds to hire an attorney for Jack. This is the council’s definition of FAIRNESS. Take note.

HELP – FAIRNESS IS KILLING US

The Fairhope City Council is using the Baldwin County Political Dictionary’s definition for “Fairness”. First, the council implements a hiring freeze to punish the mayor for firing two employees. Then…

Politics invites dissent and debate and has led to more than one war. Our democracy depends on free speech, which is something we should cherish. What is now going on in the Fairhope is not free speech, debate or democracy. It is hate. While your children are being taught in school and church about bullying or cyberbullying, sexism, and how to love instead of hate, some in Fairhope have nevertheless turned to Hate. The degree of vile, nasty and personal attacks on Mayor Wilson and her family and friends are not politics. These are personal and meant to hurt people’s feelings while weaponizing distrust among the community. The saddest part is that the people responsible are long time “entitled” residents who all went to school together and played together growing up in Fairhope. Today their jealousy and selfishness is dividing Fairhope while the council shows no leadership.

The Ripp Report message board has for months received comments from JESTER 666. In the beginning the Jester seem like some sick joke; however the Jester has morphed into everything that you DO NOT want to see in your children and community. The level of hate and sexism accompanied by baseless commentary has increased to a point that the Jester and his supporters need to be exposed.

I guess Nix and Kant did a great job, people moved here. This mayor is clueless, she was down in Miami at the NATIONAL mayor’s conference and sign a pledge for a Bloomberg contest. The submission she needs to get a plan for Fairhope, stop talking and get something done. She is big on ideas and low on performance! Get a plan in place for Fairhope mayor!

June 24, 2017 10:21 pm
LOL…the council makes about $1,000 a month for all the bs they have to deal with. The council members have a paying job outside of being a council member. Unlike the Queen that loves to spend our money!
I hate to break the news to you, there has been sewage in the bay for years, and years.
It is like all cities, just asks all the Tallahassee Florida residents how much sewage flow down the Chattahoochee River when Atlanta flushes.
I hope this is not new to you, have you been living under a rock!

June 24, 2017 4:21 pm
No, Robinson is trying to explain to the citizens the reason he is voting for something. He is articulate, smart, well read and he can spell.
Queen Karin the First of Fairhope is the one that talks, talks, and talks, uh, oh, well, I am trying to explain, you know what I mean, uh, well, I am not sure, it’s the council’s fault, it’s the media’s fault, it is the employees fault, it is certainly not my fault. She has had 100 complaints, that is less than half-of-one-percent of the population.
It seems QKFF can not even get her public disclosures forms correct, 2016 she had 3 siblings, and in 2017 she has only 1 sibling, huh. Sends a letter that has misspells, she lacks the details one would think someone would have with this “over 25 years of business experience.” And she calls this meeting!
It seems those on this blog can only see things through one lens, and that is the lens of Queen Karin. She is at national mayors conference, not regional, but at a national conference where Bill Clinton is speaking. Spending OUR money! AND the mayor of New York, and the Mayor of New Orleans!
If you look at the attendees, most are from larger metro cities, almost all are Democrats. Bloggers on here speak of GOB’s not accepting a woman as mayor then this mayor goes to a meeting where Bill Clinton is the speaker. Please!
Yeah, she is spending our money wisely. I am out of town on this meeting, out of town on that meeting, spending money upon money. Only 4 mayors from Alabama attended this meeting, the Tuscaloosa, Bessemer, Birmingham, and Fairhope mayors are attendees. Hum! AT least the other mayor look like mayors!
QKFF needs to attend a class(s) on how to make friends and influence people. Now that would be money well spent! QKFF new proclamation – if you speak out against me, I will delete your comments from Facebook.
Now, I tell people that I live on the Gulf Coast and not Fairhope. That is a damn shame to feel that way too. I said it before and will say it again, what 2 mayors built in 30+ years she will destroy in 4 years. In year 2 of her tenure the city will have less on the balance sheet, then in year 3 and 4, the balance sheet will really fall.
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!

June 24, 2017 10:00 pm
Why should I move, we have been here for generations. It is scallywags and carpetbaggers that are ruining this town. Those of us that have been around for a while know how humble this town use to be, not a bunch people thinking they are something special. All these new people are de novo carpetbaggers and scallywags!

June 25, 2017 12:12 pm
I fly solo, so not a part of any group. I just tell it like it is, and all of the Queen’s supporters can not handle the truth. I have all the time to post, it is really simple to use technology like a smartphone or other technology, you drop a line or two. It is called multitasking!
Sloopy, sleazy and shady is the Queen’s tactics by placing spyware only on 7 computers, an assault charge, the hiring of non-qualified friends, now that is Sloopy, sleazy and shady. The list goes on and on.
“It is a shame to have to live around these people” Have you ever read The Ripp Report? That is all this is, bashing of those that are doing their best to make decisions that are right. All everyone does is bash them.
Here’s is a question, why is it that the Queen doesn’t get along with others that were born and raised here just like she was? Why is it that is seems that it is their fault when maybe the Queen needs to look herself in the mirror and stop her bs.

June 25, 2017 7:41 pm
Whistle Britches and the Yankee. AND if they do track (spygate), then it should be on all of the computers not seven! Queen Karin targeted individuals for political reasons and that is retaliation!
Has the Queen ever used a city cell phone or computer for personal reasons, a city vehicle to stop by and pick up something personal? How do you know what sites they visit, you are the gossip monger unless you are in the administration and now leaking inside information, the Queen is unethical and foolish. She assaulted an employee! The list goes on and on and on and on!
You know it and we all know it, she in a babbling fool. She will be “one and done” “a one hit wonder” – The Queen is down spending our money in Miami trying to get photo opportunities so she can hang them on the wall and admire herself.
Actually, I am a 9th generation Alabamian dumbass! You are obviously a Carbetbagger or a Scallywag. You wait and see what happens in the next election, she is done!
I have stated facts! AND I don’t give a Ripp what you think!

June 26, 2017 8:15 am
I don’t post for the Councilman, never have. I have seen how dangerous the Queen is. In her April town hall meeting, she said the mission statement for Fairhope now is “trustworthy leadership”. I was one of the few that showed up for the meeting. Then, Spygate occurs, the Queen is so stupid she thinks people can not see through her.
She tried to explain her points but the Superintendant of Education had to intervene because she was saying – uh, well, okay, unhuh, duh, giggle, my, yes, it is this, well, do you know what I mean, oh my, well…..
So, you and your supporters like to use sexual remarks to make points because you lack the intelligence, that, combined with all the whiskey you have been drinking, in an attempt to make some point. I did not vote for Kant, didn’t vote for the Queen either, didn’t vote for all the council members.
The Queen does everything for the wrong reseasons. The Queen is in this for the Queen, it is all about the Queen, she somehow thinks how she is going to move up in politics to a higher officer. She is indeed making a name for herself, and that name, well, I have refrained from using language on here that is not worthy.
You will not call out the mayor on the crap she pulls, you have your head in the sand, and you should be upset with all of her bs too.
AND take care of your partner to get all the sexual tension off of your mind. If they will let you touch them with that mouth, I bet your mother is proud of you.

June 24, 2017 9:56 pm
It will stop many to step up and serve, why would anyone subject themselves to this type of criticism! That is why we have the mayor we have, you wait and see, the best qualified will shy away from running. If not for this council, this city would be in shambles. This new economic development director, what economic development has she done? She is an overpaid PR person, she doesn’t understand economics because all she has ever done is, well, nothing. I want to see the economic impact she has brought to Fairhope. I also want to see how much the Queen is spending on her travels.

June 26, 2017 6:29 pm
According to the US Census in 2010, Fairhope had 15,326 in population. And of the population, approximately 11,651 (74%) were old enough to vote. Now, using the US Census estimates for 2016, the city of Fairhope has an estimate of 19,421 population, and using the same percentages of voters (74%) this means there are a possible 14,372 voters. That means everyone over the age of 18 is registered to vote.
According to the Fairhope website, in 2016 there 15,777 registered voters and of that only 6,625 voted (41.99%). If you use the above percentages, how can there be that many registered voters in 2016?
Impossible!
I wonder how many absentee ballots there were, and who voted for whom? Are there people on the voting rolls that need to be purged and are there people of the voting rolls that do not homestead in Fairhope or are registered to vote in two cities? If this is their second home, then they are allowed to vote but they need to be homestead, tags, taxes, ectara, etc. You can vote in national elections because the federal government does care, but the state and cities do care!
Was it the absentee voting that won the mayor office in 2016? Hum….

June 27, 2017 11:35 pm
You are indeed correct, it is actually “etcetera, etc.,….” I don’t cut and paste, do not have to and since this is all you can correct in my post, give me a 97%. I am glad you agree with my post! Fool!

June 21, 2017 10:46 pm
This is not reporting but slanderous!
So how is Fairhope going to stop the growth in Daphne? What everyone needs to understand this area is growing so they need to embrace it, plan for it and work with developers! Fairhope is not going to stop it because Daphne and other municipalities want the tax dollars. Daphne has the big-box retailers and the tax base to possibly start a city school system. Because of this tax base, Daphne can do more with less population. However, with more retail comes more population, if they build it they will come!
Fairhope will never be a Seaside, Seaside was built from the ground up, Fairhope has been here a while. Fairhope needs to take advantage of 181 being widened and plan for some retail out that way, Fairhope planning area is going to grow regardless of what others may want. It simply can not be stopped, property owners do have strong property rights in Alabama. Get over it!

June 22, 2017 12:39 pm
Totally agree that it can be managed but Fairhope can not do anything about the growth of Daphne or other municipalities. AND Fairhope will never be a Seaside. There has been a Master Plan, an updated Master Plan, then updated again. The Master Plan is not worth the paper it has been written on if it is not followed.
You can’t slap words on a Master Plan then one day try and enforce it. Nor can you enforce a Master Plan when it is against the laws of the state.
This new administration has been in office now for what, 9 months? No plan, no strategy just spend, spend, spend and spend more on this, on that!
Nothing from her or her sidekick. Ripp, people like me should have you looking hard at QKFF and her corruption, but you only look at those that have built this city.
Your hypocrisy has no bounds.

June 22, 2017 1:11 pm
IF it were not for the city council, QKFF would destroy what it took 30 years to build, she will destroy in 4 years.
June 22, 2017 9:10 pm
With all the lies being spread on here someone has to bring balance to this forum. If not, then all of QKFF supporters will try and blame everything on the council.
I bet the mayor’s supporters blame this bad weather on the council!
Seems like I have frustrated QKFF supporters with the truth!

June 22, 2017 12:44 pm
That is why the IT Technician left the city of Fairhope, he knows his hand will be raised! QKFF will be raising her right hand too! I want to the fly on the wall when she is deposed, I can see it now, “uh, well, let me see, you know what I mean, uh, oh, well, it is everyone else’s fault, not mine.” Duh, Duh!

June 22, 2017 12:45 pm
Keep living that lie, just keep believing that. When you wake up, you will break out into a sweat!

June 22, 2017 1:17 pm
Maybe the reason you have not received a reply, perhaps the emails were intercepted by the IT department and it will take time for QKFF to read all of them before having them released to the council’s email accounts! Spygate!

June 22, 2017 9:01 pm
Robert Brown is one of the best council members we have, he is smart, methodical in thought and when he speaks he is to the point. He asks the right questions and wants to do what is right for Fairhope!

June 17, 2017 8:23 pm
“For the right reasons!” Not so fast!
“Anyonebutkarin” is correct, just because someone is elected as a part-time council does not exclude them from doing business with the city. Nor does it exclude them from having friends that do business with the city. If it did then there would be very few people that qualify for election as a council member. Queen Karin the First of Fairhope (QKFF) would have a conflict because anything the queen proposed to benefit the downtown could benefit her business. Actually, since the mayor is a full-time position there would be more of a conflict.
Individuals that are part-time are allowed to make a living and keep friends. The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled on this in the past.
As far as QKFF, well, the queen has arrived, so go about your business, she is here to save Fairhope, now go about your business, my supporters know I am great and without any conflicts, go about your business.
The only people that think they know are the mayor’s supporters, clueless at best!
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!

June 17, 2017 10:22 pm
Hurt my feelings? Yeah, I need QKFF to make a safe space, right beside the statue of her, Dean and with Ripp kneeling in front, that will placed in the circle at the pier, so those of us that get their feelings hurt can go.
LOL…you make me laugh.
Just look at the QKFF’s decisions, she campaigned on ending the lawsuits but she is now coming to understand that lawsuits are part of the job. QKFF likes to hide behind lawyers, lawyers that are paid with our money. QKFF doesn’t realize that the only person that wins in a lawsuit is the lawyers, and they will tell you to ‘stand your ground’ and let us litigate this because they are going to make money.
Someone need to explain to QKFF on how to eat an elephant – one bite at a time. She wants to spend money on this, let us expand the golf course so more liqueur sales can occur, let the city take over the harbor, let us do this, high-speed internet, et cetera, etc. I would like to see when her sidekick is going to deliver on something tangible and just talk, talk, talk, sniff, sniff, sniff into the microphone, deflect, make excuses. Those that can not get something done points fingers, they like all these studies because they are not capable!
IF it is true that our infrastructure needs $25,000,000 in repairs, don’t you think this is what we need to be focused on? I truly think she likes controversy, she ran her campaign on negativity, points the finger at everyone, then, THEN, QKFF hires her friends that are not qualified and pay them with our money.
QKFF loves the attention, she craves the attention, QKFF loves to be adored by her supporters but you keep lying to yourself, keep tell yourself QKFF is doing a good job, live the lie! I believe my commentary just may be more than QKFF supporters souls can bear!
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!
P.S. You know when you have won the argument? When someone begins to use curse words!

June 19, 2017 11:50 pm
I was not inferring that the mayor had a conflict of interest on the downtown issues but trying to point out that only a full-time politician could have one. I think Kiefer is a nice guy, but given the crap, QKFF has pulled, I just stay way for the bookstore.
I am not boycotting the bookstore just choose to stay way due to the political talk around the coffee shop. I am tired of hearing the lies.
QKFF has made some really bad decisions. Please tell me what her sidekick-whistle britches (WB), has brought in something tangible except sniff in the microphone and make excuses for this and that? Please enlighten me on all these tangles WB has done in exchange for this salary of hers?
When the QKFF wants to spend monies on the harbor, the clubhouse, on the golf course on the salaries, I would like to see what all of this is going to cost us!

June 20, 2017 3:25 pm
Ripp, I thought you were against corruption? It seems you feel like it is okay because someone you supported is now mayor! So you are okay with QKFF hiring two individuals that lack the education, WB has never held a job more than three years and in some cases, not even a year, so what successes can some have when only working in a job for a year or two? There no long-term track record. You are okay with the mayor’s office hiring friends that are not qualified and paying them some of the largest salaries within city government? So we need to stop “bitching?” Typical QKFF supporter.

Concur totally! I’ve yet to hear anyone that is happy with her, and I have asked so many people that vote and have not hear one good word. Many of them voted for her, they have said they are so disappointed. IF she makes it to the end of her term and decides to run again, she will not get reelected to any office again. Period!
This mayor will only be transparent when it is convenient for her! She is saying she doesn’t or will not approve any settlement, but she knows it is not her call, so it sounds great on her Facebook post. She is acting like she is standing her ground but she knows that a settlement is not her call! LOL
All you mayor supporters keep believing in her, she is not a truthful person! She is playing what few supporter she has left as FOOLS! Wakeup Fairhope and smell the coffee!
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!

June 14, 2017 8:45 pm
Mayor Wilson knows her days are numbered! The city attorney does not represent the mayor, he does not represent the city council, Tut Wynne represents the city of Fairhope! The mayor is completely clueless, she is simply ill-equipped for the mayor’s job. The city attorney does and can do an independent investigation when there is a claim filed against the city because he represents THE CITY! Her claims of not spending taxpayers money on these issues are what she is not doing, she is spending time and money. She is desperate, and her own worst enemy! My word, she really thinks she is untouchable! Complete fool!

Why would I need to write a letter to the council? They are doing a good job, and if I wrote a letter to the mayor she would not read it because she is not going to listen to anyone that has good since! I have no problem signing my name – Jester Triple-Six.
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!

June 15, 2017 2:36 pm
When you are being investigated, you do not have a right to be the investigator! The mayor is under an investigation, the mayor is the accused and a witness, she not entitled to see anything but the final report. If she did then she would change the outcome to favor herself, and retaliate! When it is an independent investigation, it must be independent! Mayor Wilson knows what she did was wrong, she knows the truth and her supports know the truth, but they are in denial! Tut is a man of integrity and will do what is in the best interest of Fairhope, not the mayor, not the council but what is in the best interest of the CITY!

To show just how naive this mayor is “….I will not agree to pay one dime of tax-payer money (or money from the City’s insurance company) to anyone for this purpose…” If the insurance company wants to settle in an effort for limiting exposure then the insurance company will settle, should the mayor refuse to settle then the insurance company will stop defending the action and the city will be on its own! This statement alone shows just how inexperienced the mayor is! Duh, Duh!
The council has to agree to pay not the mayor! Hear ye, hear ye, the queen has arrived, now move along, go about your business! I have directed the attorneys to do this, I have directed the attorneys to do that, move along, go about your business now!
All you mayor supporters need to realize what you elected. AND now the council has to support in defending her because they want what is best for the city. Lord help her, please!
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!

June 10, 2017 9:43 pm
This mayor is so out of touch with reality; she has the personality of rattlesnake and the intelligence of an amoeba! Fake to the core! Foolish! This council with the exception of Conyers is the only thing that has kept Fairhope on the tracks, and the carpetbaggers realize this the better. Those are jealous of the GOBs need to get over it, if the city so bad with the GOBs in officer then why do all the carpetbaggers want to move here? We built it, now live with it!

Have I struck a nerve with these dumb mayor supports? This mayor displays all the symptoms of a paranoid schizophrenic! It’s just a matter of time for all the investigations to be finished and she will be forced to resign! She lacks self-awareness, she no emotional intelligence and has forgotten that she is an ole country girl from Alabama, that was luck she got into Auburn. She tries to make herself out to be some type of sophisticated women within the business world. She has had too many glasses of wine! Pickled mind!
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!

If anyone would go to a city council meeting and watch this mayor who wants to spend, spend, then you will come to the realization that we are all in trouble.
She now wants to take over the marina. “The study” that was done, it was done internally, by a political friend of the mayor’s, and the mayor gave her a job, then ask her to do a study that she is not qualified to do! That study was like comparing apples to oranges, I have a hard time calling it a study.
You have to love the mayor’s Facebook posts! We monitor computers to ensure efficiencies…what she should have said was WE ONLY MONITOR THOSE THAT WERE APPOINTED BY KANT. This mayor is dangerous as they come because she doesn’t realize that most do not listen to her lies. She believes her own lies!
NO, most companies do not spy, they may block and limit where employees search or limit sites. When you spy and you obtain personal, highly sensitive information that can only be view by few, you have a major problem. This mayor is in for a lot of issues!
Kant left this city to this mayor with the strongest balance sheet of any Baldwin County city. Burrell/Bonne help build this city and she wants to change things for the sake of change – foolish as she is.

Indeed the city has a right to know what employees are doing on the job but you cannot target individuals, if it was installed on all computers then it is permissible. Even if it was installed on all computers it will come down to what the city’s policy states. AND did they inform all the employees of the new policy.
IF it was targeted, the mayor needs to resign because she has violated the federal criminal code, and if any attorney-client privileged communication, especially if the city clerk was communication with the city attorney was breached, any medical information, ecterta, etc., then someone is in deep poop! If a council member was discussing an issue the city clerk then this is really going to sting.
Here’s my prediction, the IT person that installed this program will cut a plea deal and then throw the mayor under the bus and the legal system will eat the mayor alive.
This is a case of altra vures, the insurance company will most likely not cover the mayor’s legal expenses. She’s done if this is true.
AND here is the kicker, any and all information obtain illegally will be ruled inadmissible in court, so her efforts may have cost her the job, and she could face criminal charges, and all the dirt she has uncovered will go back into the Pandora Box, all of it.
I have stated this before on here, she needed to have advisors that did not have a dog in this fight, was non-political and low key. I hate this for the city, the council, the mayor and more importantly, all of us that lives and works in this city – Carpetbaggers too!
Those that were advising her really did not care about this mayor, it was all about vendettas but she will have to answer for it.
I pray this all not true, I really do, we need to pray for this city.
I can still remember how that music used to make me smile

June 4, 2017 12:37 pm
So the Jester has been called out, the Jester is laughing too hard, please! WOW! HAHAHAHEHEHAHA!
The only individuals on here being called out are the mayor’s supporters. The Ripp Report and his gypsies know the mayor did not have the skill set to run this city. You know this, the Jester knows this, and after the latest stunt she has pulled, now we all know this.
Her supporters will try and justify this latest stunt as being appropriate, they will deflect, try and blame it on the city council, the hard working employees or the GOBs. You can place your head in the sand, but the Jester’s eyes are wide open.
Here is a thought for most of you, if the mayor has installed spyware, and we have to assume the spyware was only installed on the 7 devices as reported, but it could have been installed on other devices like the email server. Or is she reading the emails off the server?
What happens if you emailed a council member, and as a citizen have a concern with the mayor’s strategic plan or other matters, and she is spying on those emails too. There would be nothing confidential within the city council, the council with the citizens, the council with the city attorney, among other issues. Why would anyone participate in city activities knowing that could be retaliated against.
The only person that can tell Jester to stand down is a much higher calling, no one else. If The Ripp Report wants to ‘band’ the Jester from posting, then he will silence someone that really is objective and see things for they really are! The Jester’s head on a swivel, always looking, listening and watching!
It seems the Jester has placed such a strain on the mayor’s supporters that it may be more than their souls can bear!
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!

Remember when I posted the mayor extended the olive branch for a reason, she knew something bad was coming and she was going to need to the council? She ate lunch and dinner with a few council members.
That was about the time she had the computers ‘tapped’, this mayor defines the term Dark Triad.
She could not leave things alone, she had to ruin hard working people lives, so now, the Jester has been unleashed to start dancing!
Those that know Jester, knows Jester’s abilities scares even the devil himself.

Ripp didn’t get Kant, Kant got himself, Kant was his own worst enemy. Kant became a politician instead of a public servant, he stopped listening to his department heads, and then he became hostage to the money brokers.
The election wasn’t about who was better, both were poor choices, it was a fresh start. A start that has not happened, a start that is just like Kant’s. Hiring his friends, hiring those that are not qualified. This new mayor has harmed hard working people, people that may have disagreed with her, so she, like Kant thinks she owns the city. The public has lost total confidence in the mayor. Walk about town, a just listen!
If you think really qualified people will come and work for the city, think again, especially with this spyware issue, who would want to work in that environment? If you have a disagreement with the mayor, you could be subject to being spied on! This mayor has used the playbook from a dictator!
Ripp is a Marine, he knows who the real deal is!
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!

Why the hate? Why the name calling? Where is the hope in Fairhope? Where is the love on Monday? It is a new week, we all start out the week pleasant, right?
The mayor will have Dean make a bronze statue of herself before she resigns, of course, Dean and, on one knee Ripp beside her! We all can worship these shrine in due time, there has not been enough damage yet, not enough long-term employees fired!
When all the city workers have been replaced with carpetbaggers and unqualified baggers at that, then the mayor will fly a new flag and have the statue raised and placed in the center circle at the peer, that will be your last order! That way when the sky-cam of TV-15-Mobile previews the peer it will reach the maximum audience!
Everyone claim down! The bronze material has already been purchased!

Burrell is a wise man!
Any astute person that is mindful knows to try and limit the liability of the city. The council has remained silent because they understand the liability these claims bring.
The mayor needs to remain silent too if she can, she sometimes lets her mouth out gun her intellect, what little there is!

You have to love Ripp’s stab at ‘reverse psychology’ when he publishes this so called report. I guess he thinks the junior council members are still in junior high school. Let us see if they are going to get inside the box with the rest.
From reading this junk post on here, this is the most target rich environment I have ever seen.

The Jester leaves a lot of clues to his identity in his posts, some of which allude to him being a council person, most confirm a demented mind set on destruction of the mayor’s office by the use of internet bulling and slanderous and personal comments. Using an iPhone or Android phone to make such comments comes with risk of being inadvertently identified. Think about that hard JESTER 666.

In response to the mayor’s attorney addressing the council, Councilman Mr. Robert Brown choose to write a letter, to be published by Gulf Coast News, who has been assisting and supporting the attacks on the mayor by writing a series of bias articles. The GCN has never written about the airport, the “gift”, soccer field’s or ethics charges against “come fly with me”, or any controversial subject in Fairhope that involve the GOB’s. GCN has been given documents related to many issues in Fairhope by The Ripp Report, all of which they ignored. Thank God it is called the Courier and not the Fairhope Courier. The editor is drinking the same cool aid as the Jester or maybe he is flying with Jack!

Read this letter and see if you see some similarities to the Jester 666

Now is the time for the Jester or Mr Brown to step up and push back. We anxiously await their reply and denials. One thing is for sure the other comments on the Ripp Reports are free to speculate on the Jester’s identity. If Mr. Brown is the Jester, his comments reflect his mindset, that mindset is not that of a councilperson. A councilperson who calls his constituents carpetbaggers and Yankees insisting they go home if they do not agree with him and his good ole boys.

FAIRHOPE DOES NOT NEED JESTER 666 !

But I thought it was “Robert Brown For Our Hometown”? His home town maybe.

Fairhope Native

First let me say I am not pleased with all Mayor Wilson has done since she has been in office. But all this mess is not just her fault it is everyone on the Council as well as the Mayor. We actually need to get rid of the new Mayor & current council members. Robert Brown could have actually reduced his letter to 1 page. In a nutshell: I do not like what the Mayor has done since in office so therefore I will NOT listen to anything she has to say & before she opens her mouth I will not agree with what comes out of it. He said the ethics violations are baseless – it is not until it is over Robert Brown. Also, were these great employees going to Kant & stirring things up on the side?? It is obvious you do not know the things that have gone on for years in Fairhope. And by the way – Nix & Kant did not make Fairhope!! The citizens & business owners & those that own the property is who made downtown what it is. And believe you me – I grew up here & it is NOT… Read more »

I agree with much of what you’ve said. However, I feel that because the council has fought against the mayor every single day since she took office, I’m not sure I know what exactly you blame her for. And I don’t want to be argumentative, but what exactly has she done that you are you unhappy with? So far, but for the dissension between council and mayor it seems she has been working toward what most of the residents including me elected her for. If the council would stop throwing roadblocks in her way she’d have probably accomplished a lot more.

The letter Brown wrote is good, and seems to be the reality! Bullying and calling individuals outside the city limits “you people” is how you win friends and influence people.

I seriously doubt if this is Robert Brown. He runs a successful business and I can’t see him spending his time doing this. Jester strikes me as an older, probably retired, person who spends a lot of time downtown and stays in the loop politically.

Jester Triple-Six

I can say this with truth, I am Jester Triple-Six, not Mr. Brown. I do not know Mr. Brown, nor the other council members in Fairhope and have only met a few in passing. I did not campaign for anyone. I came on this blog to show just how absurd those that post against the Council and others have become, the name calling and pointing fingers with only half-truths and rumors. The caricature of the president of the council behind bars, and Ripp you seem to enjoy all of this bullying, name calling, and HATE. I am a non-partisan, I vote not as Independent, Republican, Democrat or any other party but as a non-affiliated party voter. The blog author(s) accuse others of high crimes and misdemeanors with only purported facts or half-truths. There are always two sides to every story then somewhere in the middle lay the truth. Ripp, you call people names, label people and take great pride in dividing Fairhope, you bask in the fact you have sued the city, you take this action without any recourse, without the consideration of those that work, worship and live in this city. I have posted with the same ferocity as… Read more »

Jester many people outed Brown, due to the comments and clues if they are wrong please immediately.. say who you are. Jester 666 is who started this rant of yours. Burrell has been lying through his teeth about the airport and Brown has made the comment that the council holds the Mayor responsible for the ethics charge, BS she is COMPELLED to file a complaint if she receives information that may involve a crime, Brown and Burrell and the rest of the council know this to be a fact. Hate you posted and you hide behind anonymous or Jester 666, I use my name.that is the difference. Remain silent and more and more people will think Jester 666 is Brown. If I were you I would not want anyone to know who I am, follow the comments. Caution using a cell phone to make so many comments only requires a little slip up to be identified.

Jester Triple-Six

I told you, Ripp, we will sign a confidentiality agreement. I can prove that I am not a council member, nor has a council member put me up to posting. I posted to prove a point, all you do is hate and when the table is turned you get upset. Now, are you willing to agree to this or not? I will prove that you and your supporters are wrong! If there was not anonymity then you have very few posts on here. Now, you said you would pay someone $5,000 if they could prove anything you state on the Ripp Report is false. You can disclose the answers to the questions and that will be that. Ripp, will you agree to this? You are trying to use reverse psychology there, “remain silent and more and more people will think you are Jester666.” I really do not care, next, you will be thinking I am Jack, or Kevin or Jay or Jimmy, the list goes on and on. Are you going to honor your pledge or not?

Anonymous

Jester, it sounds less like Ripp is the one who is upset and more as though you are. In fact, you sound paranoid. If you are not Robert Brown (and who here really believes you are not at this point), then why don’t you come clean and tell us all who you really are. Wait…you would never do that. Because the things you’ve said, the lies you’ve told, the accusations – unfounded, slanderous – would shame you. Would shame your family, as it should. Would embarrass you in front of your friends. I look forward to the time when all of us finally know the truth. No one should say the things you’ve said and be able to continue to hide.

Jester Triple-Six

The accusations? Oh my, just look at the blog. This is the problem with all of this, Ripp said it best “…due to the comments and clues if they are wrong please immediately.. say who you are that all the people…” People think they are all detectives and they hear something, then they hear somethings else and then they take these “clues” and make these accusations! I don’t care if the mayor files an ethics complaint if she feels compelled do so them so be it. I think if she feels compelled to file something then she should file something but for this blog to state what they think is the outcome before there is an outcome is wrong. But sports fans, look at what is going on in the mayor’s office. Look at the article in the paper today…it is always something that has to do with trust, retaliation. The only thing my family would be ashamed of is the fact I give this blog my time, but if you want gossip it is the best mill outside of the hairdressers. I learn more gossip from this blog and when I get my hair cut than anywhere else. This… Read more »

You are a lost and confused soul and I will pray for you as this is the right thing to do. If you and your family feel no shame for all the terrible things you have posted. I do pray that your evil postings will stop and that you might become civil in the very near future.

Are there more than one or two of you who believe that Jester is Brown? Seems a huge stretch to me. Brown is very low key. He may side with developers but we knew that before we voted for him. I am not thrilled with the Council, but I think that this is approaching libel to accuse Robert Brown of posting these comments. I would be very careful here……also, I believe that Jester could possibly be a ‘shut-in’ who does nothing other than post on the ‘net. However, Jester does have a bead on what is actually happening here, so I do have a bit of respect for his insight and wit! I enjoyed his American Pie references.

Anonymous

Well Georgia. We also had a commitment that he would vote against the Fly Creek project. Lied! That Confirms that you don’t mind backing a liar. I don’t think you yourself have a clue. I think you should be careful who you place your moral compass on. But then again you already have chosen Jester! Maybe you didn’t read all the BS Jester posts shown in the article. You are a very confused person with no morals either. I hope you do not have any family that knows that you enjoy Jester’s post. That would be sad. But you wouldn’t care. No matter who he is.

Georgia Orwell

Wow……who are you people? I voted for Brown. I assumed that he was against the apartments b/c he was from Fairhope and was raising a family here. I did not notice the fact that his biggest backers were the Corte family……..that was my mistake. I am not saying that it was a mistake to vote for Brown. The jury is still out, in my opinion. So far, I am not disappointed. He appears to take a very thoughtful approach. Let’s not throw him beneath the bus just because he sees that the Mayor has made poor choices. The truly frightening thing here is that I saw the humor in the American Pie/Don McLean 70’s references and now I am being accused of having no morals.
The Mayor and the Council MUST figure this out; otherwise, can we accept all resignations next month? Let’s get a new Council/Mayor!

Anonymous

Yes. They all have mistakes. Do not disagree whatsoever. I’m sure we both could write out a list on all of them. I was just pointing out the fact that Brown promised to vote NO on the Fly Creek Project and this far he is not keeping his word. Said if we elected him he would OPPOSE it completely. Now for all of them. I agree 100% with you. If They can’t work together and only fight. Let’s clean the slate and start over. Can’t hurt?

Anyone can post ‘anonymously’ but nothing is truly anonymous any longer on the internet. Keep in mind that Brown is a respected member of the community and has a great family; if you know something detrimental about him, post it above your real name and contact info so that he can respond in kind.

And yet apparently it’s fine for Robert Brown/Jester to falsely accuse Mayor Wilson of of all types of misdeeds without solid evidence? How can you possibly think that’s fair?

Will you defend him then?

I sure hope we can fix our infrastructure before the developers drain all the quality of life we have left. It’s so different now.

What bothers me is the good ole boys are all bragging about Fairhope being the fastest growing city in the state like it’s a good thing. Our high school is overcrowding by the day and traffic is getting to where it really makes you have to plan when you drive. Mayor Kant used to always say he wanted to “keep fairhope fairhope” whatever that meant! He doubled the population while he was mayor! We have to stop people. Please stop the development. We have major infrastructure problems!!!

Native Fairhoper

I agree that the growth is getting out of hand. The streets are clogged, the stores are sold out, and you cannot even get a doctor because they are so booked up. The county commission and the city councils keep letting these developers drop hundreds of houses in subdivisions that overwork the sewers, roads, schools, hospital, and crowd out services for those that live here.
But when real estate people pay your campaign, you let them do whatever. Then when our home is trashed, the developers move on to another place like the predators they are.
Fairhope is turning into DeKalb County, Georgia. We can not blame it ALL on the politicians but ourselves who elected them too.
The bickering that we see in the City Council meetings is just secondary to the fact that certain people want to make a buck and somebody is trying to stop them. The airport is a toxic site and must be closed down if it cannot pull its weight. You listening Burrell & Boone? No, you aren’t you are too busy trying to count the money that you are going to make through some back door…

Jester Triple-Six

Are you completely crazy or just half crazy? Are you saying that you do not want to see the demographics of Fairhope become more diverse? Do you want Fairhope to stay predominately white? Is that what you really want to say? Because DeKalb County has a higher African-American population than it once had. Speaking of Hate, this is a prime example!

Polywog

Diversity? Please Robert. You are a massive loser.

Francis Paul Ripp

Fairhope under Kant and Nix used Planning and zoning as a tool to keep blacks out of Fairhope. Fairhope developed a policy of not annexing any projects in their jurisdictional district. That was the president set in order to control who came into Fairhope, In Daphne a subdivision or commercial project outside city limits but in side jurisdictional district comes into the city limits as a condition for approval in P&Z. This policy accepts projects or applicants without prejudice and this also provides tax dollars for infrastructure. Fairhope ultimately screwed itself with their annexing policy and now faces a problem on how to annex. Do Not expect the council to do anything. In the 36532 area code 50% live in the city and 50% live outside city limits. Fairhope only exception was that they forced Wal-Mart by legislative action to come into city, for tax purposes, Fairhope lost about 6 million dollars by this not happening when wal- mart was approved.

Jester Triple-Six Out

Did anyone notice that I never published that verse? “My hands are clenched in fists of rage”, not in a rage just want this site to stop bashing the council and calling them all crooks. I haven called the mayor a crook, just point out issues and it gets to Paul then he goes ballistic. If he would take the same advice that placed in this ‘edition’ then it could all so civil. He could set some community standards about name calling but he doesn’t. Most, if not all of the post on here are based up hate, from everyone but then again, this report doesn’t post the previous post that I posted too. Either someone was calling the council members crooks, Bevis or butthead or some other name. So, you want the hate to stop then you Mr. Frances Paul Ripp has a chance to stop it. Stop others from posting name calling and saying folks are guilty of something before having being charged or tried. So, if Ripp will apologize for tieing Jester to Brown then Jester will stop posting. The right I will reserve is the right to post if someone starts the name calling again. BTW,… Read more »

Wonderful Wednesday july 12 2017

I hope you will start a new ‘report’ on Tuesday, and then Friday. This ‘report’ is getting boring! Just a suggestion.

I sure wish everyone would quit acting like assholes and get back to work. The cryptic shit is getting old. And the American Pie quotes are stupid. It seems like some are more concerned about destroying people and clever quips than they are about Fairhope. BTW..the flowers look great this year. (That was not meant to be a dig at any past, present, or future city employees. Just a compliment)

Francis Paul Ripp

The Flowers smell good the smell is from our current political climate.

Kant & Nix tried to HIDE the Fraud in Fairhope or divert it behind the Fliwers & Trees!!!

Hater!

Fairhope Native

THANK YOU Mr. Ripp for having the courage to bring all this CRAP in Fairhope to light!!! You are some kind of MAN!! We more than applaud you!!!

Anonymous

I thank you, too, Mr. Ripp. It has to be tedious, showing up to all the Council meetings and listening to those blowhards chat among themselves like the best buddies they are (what’s with “the friend of a friend who can get rid of the goose problem”?). But just know there are countless numbers of us who appreciate what you’re doing on our behalf. You have more guts than all those council members and those in their pockets have together.

Fairhope Native

Nope, not a hater at all – I am a realist. So many that live in Fairhope for years have been given a bunch of bullshit – excuse my French – they have been threatened etc to what goes on if it gets out – I know of one whose residence was broken into & manuscripts stolen as they were fixing to expose what was going on in Fairhope!!!

Did they not have back-up copies on computer? Nothing has been proven to be true. It is hard to believe that anyone still types/writes one copy of anything. Sounds like urban legend.

Polywog

I noticed jester did not post during the council meeting.

Only after.

Booby J.

I checked the facebook video of the council and there were no postings by Jester during the council meeting.

After the meeting was over Robert Brown returned his crown. He used his Iphone to log in and post as the Jester.

Brown is certainly the Jester.

And not too smart.

Anonymous

Jest-a-Moron jest outed himself again. Last night, Robert Brown For Our Hometown, referred to Mr. Paul Ripp by name, just as he did in his post last night at 8:11 pm. I believe that the Council meeting had adjourned by that time.

Thelma Yates

He did not post during the meeting…because he is…

Robert Brown

Is the Jester666

Jester Triple-Six

Are you listening skill that poor? Brown state to Pauli: “Frances Ripp, you give yourself way to much credit.” That is the problem with of you idiots, you hear what you want to hear, wake up, pull your head out of your ass and listen!!!

Prediction: These five councilmen will all lose re-election. Obstructionist aholes.

Karin Wilson will never win anything again; probably, these Councilmen will all win again. I won’t be voting for them, but most of Fairhope will. I wish that we could have an election next month and replace Wilson and the Council. She is so shockingly stupid; we voted for her and gave her an opportunity to work for the good of the City, but she threw it away so that she could hire her even more stupid friends. Makes me almost miss Kant.

Thelma Yates

Only a goob would miss Kant.

Fred Sanford

Miss Kant yet? LOL.
Jack will be crushed. People now know Jack.

Before the election they had no idea he carried kants water.

Jack is in deep trouble. So arenthe other councilmen. Their plan was to run Karin off.

Guess what? No dice dickheads!

Hey Jack–how many women outside your bride will vote for you?

NADA. Zilch.

You will get a few females from the city to vote for you hoping for their old jobs back. But thats it.

How many men will vote for a crooked good ole boy?

They had that in Kant Bulldog boy.

Jack do you really want to keep this up? Seriously. You are in for a world of disappointment son.

Jester Triple-Six

This one of the most sexist posts yet! Frances, question – have you looked into the Feel Good Foundation, Inc.? It is amazing that the mayor was a trustee, and the Fairhope Economic Development Director was a board member. Doesn’t that seem like a conflict of interest to you?The board oversaw the trustees and now one of the directors works for the mayor! You need to investigate this, see if there is anything there. Documents tell me there is something there! There was a lot of money spent on ‘fundraising’ and wonder where that money went? Fundraising, hum…

I watched last night’s Council Meeting and everything appeared normal. There may be animosity between the Mayor and Council but everyone behaved well; there did not appear to be any issues among the participants. Do the Ripp Report Editors (or, more importantly, the commenters who claim factual information) actually have any facts about the ‘pipeline’, etc , FBI investigations or other misdeeds by anyone in Mayor Kant’s administration or is this just a ‘stir-the-pot’ hobby engaged in by people with absolutely nothing else to do? If someone has nothing to do, keep in mind that Fairhope has a Senior Citizens Clubhouse (Nix Center?)……go there and play cards. Better idea…….find a Mayoral candidate to replace Wilson. Her ‘heart’ may be in the right place, but she is an idiot and is turning Fairhope into an object of pity. I did believe that she was going to great things for Fairhope but she has chosen (instead) to do great things for her friends. Think who can we recruit to be Mayor b/c this cycle is toast! If the Council had done anything wrong, wouldn’t our esteemed mayor have done something (other than giggle) though the meeting? I spent 6 months believing that… Read more »

I challenge Pauli to look into the mayor’s disclosure forms, they don’t match when it comes to relationships. The ‘Foundations’ she has sat and her new hired friends. This council has protected Fairhope from her madness. I warned Pauli not to ask Brown if he was ole Jester, did you see the look on Pauli’s face when Brown stated: “Frances Ripp, you give yourself to much credit, NO!” Hell, I am beginning to feel bad for Pauli, I really feel sorry for the Queen, her ego got the best of her, she actually thought she could do this job. I was in the intelligence business long before it was cool. Pauli want to dance, well let us dance! Jester is a ghost that Pauli is chasing. I am tired of the lie, finger pointing and friend hiring! I apologize for not being at the council meeting but was out of town for meetings and just back tonight. His sources hang out at the dog park, they set in a group and compare notes, lie to each and think they are all Dick Tracy. An FBI guy that retired Special in Charge of Montgomery, takes his dog to the park, he’s… Read more »

Perhaps one day we can reach an agreement. I am a spook from back in the days, loved the work but reached a moral decision and moved on. I apologize for being so harsh Paul.

Pollard Estates

Ga. how much is Jack paying you to write this tripe?
You okay with the airport? What a joke! Burrell is corrupt as the day is long.
You better find a better candidate than him!
Karin was hired to shake it up.
The voters will continue to shake it up until the council works with her.
Obstruction, obstruction, obstruction.
Jack and his boyz on the council are like the national democrats…pathetic.

Yep. Wait until next election. The Council will be out. Burrell and Boone will either have to find honest work

Mr. Ripp I am suspicious of the soccer field costs. If I am willing to FOIA request payment documents will you help me? I will bet my left tit Boone and Burrell and the goobers made bank.

I agree. I know that Fairhope Single Tax Colony donated around $450,000 to build bathrooms because the City omitted them from its original budget….who was in charge? I would love to see the actual numbers.

Francis Paul Ripp

I think the city also donated money. Single tax refused to be the contractor as well as the city. Ultimately the soccer club became the contractor. those funds should be accounted for and the contractors reviewed. Robert Brown is on the soccer committee ask him to agree to an audit. Beware of the Jester.The soccer fields required about 1 to 1.5 million in excavation and fill.The fill and excavation would have gone down dramatically if they simply drop the elevation on one end and grade to the other. The whole deal from purchase to the grade of land and the high price paid in the middle of a recession stinks. One to Two million was wasted on graft and poor planning.

Summit Industries…boone and burrell…notice how quiet they are…mice not men…they steal from taxpayers and claim to be Christian with Pittmans prayer group! Sick bunch.

Georgia Orwell

Fairhope is beginning to be nationally recognized for its ‘poor planning’…..library, civic center, golf club, soccer fields, sewer system, retaining wall, developments that negatively affect Fly Creek, etc…..We are becoming quite the poster child for “Where to NEVER Move!” I had hoped that Wilson might help clean this up, but we all know by now that she has been on the wrong track (she is clearly on the ego track). I wish that her ‘much less than stellar’ hires would resign so that Karin could get a bead on what needs to be done and head in that direction. As long as she has these adoring (but clueless) high school buddies drawing large salaries from Fairhope, the Mayor will never gain respect and/or cooperation from the Council or the voters. I am one of many who are happy that Kant lost, but I am now wishing that we had elected Willie Bean this time! At least that sweet dog would have tried to do what was best for the City after we elected him! He had 10,000 times the charm of our current Mayor. I also must add one more thing……Karin sat and smiled/chuckled/giggled throughout the entire work session and… Read more »
