I’M BACK

The Ripp Report is back. Sorry for missing a week but some old injuries caught up with me, I suffered a body concussion in Vietnam, 50 years ago, as a result I have had 14 surgeries, two infections, a muscle tear and my kidney removed, Agent Orange. My operation Dec. 2017, a total reverse shoulder, went well for 4 months, then I discovered slippage in the shoulder. July 20th I had surgery to correct that and discovered that the shoulder was infected. Now I am having to deal with recovery and daily infusions for a month. My other shoulder is scheduled for a total reverse Dec. of this year, providing all current conditions are cleared up. That is my excuse for missing last week posts, it is the first weeks posts that The Ripp Report has missed in several years. So I am back, not quite 100%, but getting better every week.

Thank You for the kind regards and concerns.

The Ripp Report receives regular complaints about Family Court, in particular Judge Thomasson and Attorney Buddy Brackin. The Bar association and the Alabama Judiciary refuse to investigate complaints. Lawyers protecting lawyers, go figure. Sadly the only recourse the public has is the Court of Public Opinion. Vote Thomasson out and spread the word to future victims to avoid these two at all costs.

BALDWIN COUNTY FAMILY COURT – A COTTAGE INDUSTRY

BALDWIN COUNTY FAMILY COURT – A COTTAGE INDUSTRY | THE RIPP REPORT / BALDWIN COUNTY LEGAL EAGLE

For years we have been critical of the family court, especially the rulings of District Judge Michelle Thomason. Complaints lit Facebook up like a Christmas tree. They were so plentiful and consistent…

Gulf Shores is embroiled in a very similar situation that mirror’s Fairhope’s controversy surrounding apartments. Apartments are not the issue as much as the location, location, location.

‘Out of order’: Unrest continues in Gulf Shores over apartment complex

‘Out of order’: Unrest continues in Gulf Shores over apartment complex

The planning commission met in executive session on Friday as residents near a proposed 206-unit apartment complex continued to criticize the project, the city and its developer.

Gulf Shores officials are taking a page out of Fairhope’s playbook on how to favor the developer over the citizens. Gulf Shores is pulling all the same stunts Fairhope did when it comes to DEFENDING the developer and limiting public participation of those who are opposed to the project. The similarities are uncanny, maybe there is a Mayor’s playbook on how to keep citizens in the dark while approving projects that the majority are against.

THE EAGLE HAS LANDED AND THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION HAS VOTED

THE EAGLE HAS LANDED AND THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION HAS VOTED | THE RIPP REPORT / BALDWIN COUNTY LEGAL EAGLE

It is no secret that I have spent 10 years trying to unseat the Mayor of Fairhope. It is expected after an election to be gracious and heap accolades on the departing Mayor, I will reserve my comments…

Gulf Shores elected officials better be paying attention, all those angry voters may do the same thing Fairhope did, Vote the Mayor and Council OUT OF OFFICE.

The Fairhope Airport Authority announced that Mr Ray Hix, Treasurer, has resigned his post. Many may remember Mr. Hix who is partners with the Fairhope Municipal Judge, Haymes Snedeker, Hix Snedeker companies. The same company awarded a lease on an airplane hanger for their million dollar jet. Jack fly’s free.

FAIRHOPE “CITIZENS CITIZENS CITIZENS”

FAIRHOPE “CITIZENS CITIZENS CITIZENS” WAKE UP! Mayor Wilson told Jack Burrell, Council President, Airport Authority Board member and liaison to the city, and who also sits on the committee to select…

Pay attention Fairhope Jack and friends have “confidential” plans for the airport, and you are going to pay for it. Mr. Burrell has fought hard for the Airport Authority to maintain the title to the land, while citizens pay for it. The City of Fairhope pays for it and Fairhope should have the title.

Speaking of paying for it, Citizens paid Mr Burrell’s attorney fees and for the “investigation” of the Ripp Report ethics complaint against Mr. Burrell and Mr. Hix. The citizens are now paying for the pending Federal lawsuit against Mr. Burrell’s abuse of the constitutional rights afforded all citizens. Who authorized the City Attorney to defend Jack Burrell?

Lawsuit alleges Fairhope Council President denied citizen’s free speech

The same City Attorney has also threatened the Mayor of Fairhope with legal action. How can the City Attorney, who is suppose to represent the Council and Mayor threaten the Mayor on behalf of the Council? A City Attorney the Council wanted, from the same ole beleaguered firm who has made a living off the taxes of Fairhope for decades. A City attorney representing the council, not anyone else.

Maybe it is all about billable hours, not tax dollars.

Hope everything heals properly this time. 14 surgeries is ALOT! Yes we are glad you are back!!Just the name Jack Burrell makes the hairs on my arms stand straight up.

Expose All

Welcome Back Ripp! You know every time I read where Jack Burrell did not allow you to speak it reminds me of how many times he didn’t want you (Ripp) to continue to hurt all the people’s feeling that Jack keep claiming. Hell, Jack Burrell hurts this city and someone in it everyday of his life. Prick!

Hey Gulf Shores Council: Go ahead and give in to your developer puppet masters. We will vote you out, get the Feds to follow your money, and keep you from receiving your payoffs. Remember next door with a former mayor in your neighboring town? Not even the Catalysts can save you.

Laura Burton

Do not settle with Burrell. Let the jury decide who is at fault.
Let the Constitution work and it will result in Burrell losing his next election.
Fairhope won’t be rigging this election either… Kants father in law has
been officially retired as Lyn Stacey’s fix it man.

Lolita

Hope someone decent runs against Thomason. She has ruint herself being buddies girl.

Want a Job

If Kant’s father-in-law has retired, can I have his job working for Catalyst? Where do I apply? Do I need to go to the Truland/Belaton office in Spanish Fort next to Timber Creek (aka “Catalyst Central”) to fill out an application?

I got the job

I already got the job. I start next week. My priorities are keeping the Gulf Shores Council in line so they push the apartments through. Another priority of mine is to get the lackies on the phony CGA page to keep shilling for the current school board administration. Not much to do for the general election since we own the Republicans

The corruption in Gulf Shores must be exposed!

Fairhope’s city attorney is dumber than a rock box.
