Jack, come fly with me, has more passengers. The Courier, editor “Chucky Cheese” is working hard for free flights. He has signed on with the pilot, “come fly with me” Jack to cover the most mundane of articles that amounts to cut and paste. The local AM station, it is hard to find, has also signed on to allow Jack all the time he needs to talk about anything but the airport.
Councilman Brown in his letter states that:
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…
“The Ethics complaint against Council President Jack Burrell and Airport board member, Mr. Ray Hix, have both been ‘ruled baseless.'” This is yet another attempt to quash the FACT that both men ARE under investigation, which is on going. Chucky and the am lady never ask jack about his free flights, ethics complaint or his role in securing the airport bid for board member Hix.
The latest attempt to get the plane off the ground was the Courier article about invoices and letters regarding computer work the City of Fairhope contracted. The sad thing about their persistent articles and commentary is that their limited, yet important audience, is getting a slanted view of reality while ignoring serious issues.
Mayor’s statement about IT invoices contradicted by multiple sources
A statement sent by Fairhope Mayor Karin Wilson last week about a set of invoices submitted to the city by IT company Elias Technologies has come into question by current and former city leaders, …
In the statement by Elias Technologies, they discuss the scope of work to be preformed, specifically.
Chucky is very clever with his quotation marks but one comment stands out. Much like Mr. browns statement, Chucky closed the statement by Elias by say: “No evidence of mishandled information was ever identified.” Who made that statement? It certainly was not Elias as their scope of work did not cover them making a determination if information was mishandled. Chucky who told you to add that sentence?
Chucky also gives the former mayor press coverage and allows him to weigh in on the non issue. This is quite telling as the former mayor is warming up to run for another elected office and anything he contributes to the subject, is self serving. The Ripp Report looks forward to the former mayor’s attempt to get re-elected to public office.
It is also quite telling that the invoices and letters are addressed to Deborah Smith, City of Fairhope. She has turned in her resignation to the city. It is suspected, by me, that she was giving documents to Jack and he is forwarding the information to Chucky. Why resign? Maybe she sees the writing on the wall and that this is all going to go to court and she decided to give her plane tickets back to Jack.
It is a no news story and the Mayor explained her position:
Sensationalized Headlines and Innuendos
Dear Citizens, Questions have been raised regarding invoicing for IT services as well as about surveillancing of city employees. I wish to answer those questions to the extent I am allowed without …
AIRPORT DIVERSION Ask yourself why would Mr. Burrell press for an investigation into invoices that were, mutually amended, that saved the city thousands of dollars? Simple answer, to try and get the heat off his ass about the pending ethics investigation. Why doesn’t chucky and the am lady cover the issues that have cost Fairhope millions?
The Fairhope City Council should be recognized for it’s political spin. City council members, Burrell, Boone and Brown, the busy bees, scurried to Bone and Barrel restaurant immediately after the…
CHUCKY WHAT CHEESE YOU PRINT!
Jack his father’s social security number.
For Christ’s sake…why?
GOOBERS gonna goob. Jack didn’t take a vow of poverty when he raised his right hand. Goobs fixin to eat!!
Paul Ripp, this is the only post I ever intend to make on your site, so read this comment slowly and surely so you can understand what this text is saying. What on earth leads you to believe Mayor Wilson is in the clear? Chuck E. Cheese, as you’re inner kindergartener likes to call him, is simply following smoke where there’s fire. Clearly, there’s significant smoke and the pro Karin Wilson glasses and the tin foil hat you wear to concoct your theories impairs your ability to see the source. There’s plenty to look into here, but you’ve missed the boat. Speaking of tin foil hats, is that what you use to tune into Lori DuBose’s show? Mercy…
That is indeed what Little Man is! He is what we called in the military, a recycle! I must ask you, Little Man, do you have a glass stomach? Because if you don’t then how to see where you are going because you seem to have your head up your backside!
The name calling, this is like first grade. Still trying to figure out who is Little Man, that is what my husband calls our 3 year old son.
Jester is probably about 5 years old with or without his meds!
You both are Dipshits for even speaking up with your posts. Dipshit, this should be your first and last post and of course Private Jester, we all know what a recycled dipshit you are!
Why doesnt Jack sue Ripp? Does he have an attorney? I will pay the filing fee!!
He has lawsuits pending. Jack Burrell is under investigation.
How much money will it take to elect Jack mayor?
Answer: There aint enough tea in China.
I have refueled and rearmed, had some forward arming and refueling points set so I will be on station! Yeah, I am back by popular demand and it is clear Frances (Little Man) has once again tried to deflect away from the truth. Queen Karin the First of Fairhope (QKFF) is at it again, another claim against the city, that award winning personality of her’s is gaining accolades for our city.
I said this before and I will say it again, it is time for the Queen to step down. It seems she has this knack to be, well, to say this mildly, to LIE! Little Man is not far behind her with all of his mistruths and deflection from the facts that he posts on what he claims is a ‘report’. Little Man likes to make things up and as he goes along.
Little Man, you are about to wake to the truth and then most, those that have any intelligence will come to see that you are as full of crap that those geese in the bay! Or should I spell it like the Queens spells things, gooses!
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!
A long long time again,
I can remember how the other mayor’s use to make me smile!
When they ask you to get down on your knees?
What did you do as far as refueling? Go down to the bay and eat another 100 pounds of Goose Shit!
“It is easy to claim and publish accusations without any regard for the truth while putting me in the difficult position of having to prove a negative.” The Queen.
WOW Jester! You should know better than anybody else. It certainly has been easy for you to post claims and accusations without any regard for the truth. You have talked out of you ass for months. So keep it up. I’m waiting to see if you can post the truth or post without knocking someone down or calling them a name. Truth! You wouldn’t know the truth if it hit you square between your eyes!!! La la la la
Psst, Psst, hey Truth, did you realize the quote was straight from the Queen Mayor’s response? You fool!
Keep hiding behind your posts. It would be hazardous to your health if you didn’t. Coward
I think you meant that you are the fool Jester. Anyone that would agree with your post and actions are just as mentally off as you are. You calling someone a fool IS the funniest post even posted on this site. Lol!!! Hide Jester. You would never call someone a fool to there face. Chicken shit little man.
Kant and Chris Elliott are running for Pittmans senate seat. Catalyst supports both.
Vote for a democrat
Anybody’s better than a catalyst crook. Boones son is a crook. Scumsuckers.
So much for Jester Triple Six’s word on no more posting. Another traitor from the military that slipped through the cracks. It’s certainly a far cry saying that you are back by popular demand. If you are all the things you said you were after I wrote Sunday. “I’m on the way to Church, Let’s all stop this crap” well I certainly have not posted anything at all. But Jester, A Man is only good as his word and your word means nothing. I too was a pilot in the military and certainly would not want you as my wing man. You are a disgrace to the community, your entire family and to the men and women who serve or have served our country. Way to go Jester. You have no right to brag on your military service. I knew you wouldn’t shut up. Liars and the very weak minded never do. They can’t help it! It’s an illness. You don’t know the true meaning of Patriotism! But some of us actually do! I encourage those of you who are true men and women to keep avoiding making any comments on the many worthless posts made by the Jester. He has proven that he is a liar and a traitor. I sincerely feel sorry for him.
You never flew close air support Anonymous, you must have been one of those that hauled crap from one base to other or flew for the coast guard. If you flew close air support then you would know how to get down and dirty to attack those that are attacking the good guys!
What makes you think you’d have the privilege of being my wingman? You wouldn’t be allowed to become a pimple on Little Man’s butt. You want all the crap to stop, then Little Man has to stop his lies. The Queen is destroying this city, you know this, we all know this, she is lying, Little Man is spinning the truth, and you are right on one issue, a man is only good as his word and Little Man is going to owe me $5,000 for showing he publishes FALSE ‘reports’.
Now, if you actually believe that your ‘reverse psychology’ is going to work, maybe in feeble mind and other people like yourself it could work but not on Jester!
You are one of the biggest fools of all the fools on here, “please, oh please, Jester, please go away” when the lies stop the Jester will stop.
AND feeling sorry for me, that and $3.50 will get me a cup of coffee at the bookstore!
If you want to make Fairhope Great, then ask the mayor to resign and then the city can move forward.
I bet your call sign was ‘fool’!
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!
Lol! Lol! Lol! If you only knew the man you were talking about. Not all negative like yourself. I know him and you are exactly what he has been saying. Such a Coward Jester for saying things about a decorated officer who is not concerned about you anymore and could fly circles around you in a helicopter or a jet. Hauled nothing except armed machine guns and rockets. He is certainly not worried about your ridiculous comments especially your wanting the $5000, the little man, the queen or getting down and dirty and especially your pity part and I’m not going to post anymore with all the crap about going deep or whatever sticks in you head at the moment. There is no doubt that you are mentally unstable and need help. I’m sure your wingmen are embarrassed to know the real you too! That’s if you even know how to fly. Your actions are certainly unbecoming of an officer! But then again it shows that you are and never have been officer material. That’s why he won’t stoop to the snake crawling level that you only know how to play on! You were probably a latrean cleaner or could not make it throug flight school. (that’s where your down and dirty comments come from) with hard feelings and angry comments (info that you have no clue about whatsoever) against him all those that rose above you and have stayed above you to date. I’ll join him as he has asked us all to not post anything else regarding the shameless Jester. From a the officers that I know in the area! Both Commissioned and non-commissioned officers. Take your meds! If you really are a veteran? We can help you if you ask for it. You Jester are dismissed BOY!
Love it, like it hot! When you fools will come to realize that Little Man’s “report” is propaganda and diversions! A big announcement is coming, then all of you mayor supporters, all 200 left that can vote, are going to feel the pain.
Sue him Robert.
You don’t know anything and what a stupid comeback. You say when the lies stop. Jester will go away. Well you have lied more than any post that I have read Jester and you lie when you say when the lies stop. As long as you mouth can move and your fingers can still post. The lies will never stop. You think you are a hero or something. You are a zero! Stunned that you would accuse anybody of lying. Stupidity or entertainment. You’re both.
Ready for a clean sweep of the council. Jay Robinson enjoys doibg Jack’s dirty work.
Jester, I begged you before and I’ll do it again: Go away. You’re a sad man, throwing barbs at everyone you dislike, making up things to try to paint others in a bad light. Honestly, I knew people just like you in high school.
I have contact the Vetetans Administration and showed them some snap shots of Jester and his comments and his wingman bullshit. Well. They have agreed, if Jester is not under their care already to help this person out. He has problems and I would like to help him. A veteran contacted me regarding Jester. The guy definitely needs help. Let us help Jester. Make your failures in life stop eating at you. Stop the harassing of civilians and the far from being well cry outs! Please let us help you. If you have already been to the Biloxi, Pensacola or Mobile VA. We might can figure who you are and help. Either way. Help is available at no charge to you. We don’t want to see you continue to hurt yourself. Let’s get you better.
I thought Ripp said if anyone could prove The Ripp Report – reported something that was not a fact he would pay someone $$$$$, so that deal is off now?
“He has proven that he is a liar and a traitor.” Not defending anyone on here just trying to figure out who is a traitor? Is Jester a traitor to the Mayor Wilson, Paul Ripp, Fairhope, or the country? Don’t see the traitor part of Fairhope or the country so what is he a traitor to????
The country! Makes no difference to me who’s side he’s on. If he is a veteran or American! He’s a traitor of all moral values!
Robert Brown admitted to more than one person that he is jester666.
He denied it at the Council meeting. To whom did he admit it? The ‘Jester’s’ comments don’t sound at all like Brown’s (in my opinion).
https://cdn.rippreport.com/2017/07/07/hate/ Read Brown’s letter they sure sound like the Jester 666 or maybe he is just the clone “jester”
Little Man can not let it go, he made a fool of himself at the council meeting so that is his story and he is sticking to it!
Your opinion is like an asshole Georgia. Everyone has one. Stop showing your ignorance. You are smarter than this.
Love the way the goobs are spinning it…karin is a crook! That’s the ticket! Catalyst is a fricking joke.
The mayor is a crook! Look at her expense reports! She is about to get exposed in the coming weeks.
How can we look at her expense reports? I’d love a look!!!
Yes, unfortunately folks like Jester love the sound of their own words so much they can’t shut up. But honestly, I am surprised he’s back while using his own name. I thought for sure he’d recreate himself with another handle. But I guess he’s simply too attached to who he imagines some people still believe he is and that there might be some truth to the things that he says.
Jest-A-Narcissit, your ego would not allow you to stop flapping your gums, or is it wings, as you seem very accomplished? Why don’t you list your engagements with hostiles and we can compare them to that of Mr. Francis Ripp and see who actually served their country. Flying sortie’s over Grenada is not the same as being knee deep in the s#&t in Vietnam. That is if you were actually out there operating instead of in the rear with the gear.
Jester, the private or corporal of Beetle Bailey’s outfit couldn’t even fly the drone I have. But he can fly off with his mouth when posting. Not a man that would say anything to your face. Scared little recycled dipshit. Hides behind his post on every insult. Bless his heart.
Jester is only one thing. A coward. He’s so scared to say anything about his very questionable service that he knows that he will be called out if there is even one thimble of proof that Jester is anything besides a moron. My two sons play with their little airplanes and helicopters. This is more combat that Jester has ever seen. Lol Jester. You are so f&$&ed up that you should just take yourself out and do Everyone a favor! Worthlessness! How does it feel Little Recycled Man!
Robert Brown suffers from a severe case of Peroni’s disease.
Narcissist, learn to spell it fool. Go look the big ole word up in the dictionary and you’ll see a picture of the Queen Mayor and believe it or not, the picture is not photoshopped!!! Whew!!!!!!
The mayor’s gums flap – Uh, well, oh, yes, oh, uh, uh, okay, huh, well, I did do it, well, maybe, not me….
Yes, tell us about the Equipment you flew, that will certainly out you and you call sign, yes?
I am puzzled by 3 things:
How does the Ripp Report know that Burrell, etc are ‘under investigation’ and by whom are they being investigated? No other media and certainly not the City Council have ever admitted to this. Are they ‘under investigation’ by the Fairhope voters & the Ripp Report or is there a government entity with prosecutorial ability that is looking into this.
Why would one assume that Deborah Smith resigned b/c of fear of prosecution? I have never met her but I recently checked her Linked In profile and she is a CPA with a very distinguished resume. I think that Fairhope was fortunate to have her; my guess is that she resigned because she can go anywhere and get another job, and she was probably hurt and offended by the Mayor putting tracking software on her computer. Mrs. Smith is a professional and I doubt that she would leak any information to anyone. Again, I have never met her but why would she ‘leak’ anything?
The Elias Technologies invoice was sent to Ms. Smith for payment. Then apparently Mayor Wilson became upset b/c the invoices disclosed the billing details (as one would expect). For her own reasons, the Mayor did not want the details disclosed to the voters so she went back to Elias and persuaded them to ‘eat those costs’ which they have apparently agreed to do, but they also have come forward to state that they were performing only those services for which Mayor Wilson had requested. Then the Mayor claimed that Elias had exceeded their scope and that she demanded that they absorb those costs. How does the Ripp Report know that Deborah Wilson is lying that the the Mayor is telling the truth (the Ripp Report states that the Mayor is the one who saved the city these thousands of dollars in expenses.)
Don’t think that I wish that Wilson had not won and that we still had Kant in office. I supported her and voted for her, but the Ripp Report must admit that she has been a disaster. I know that Boone & Burrell are gunning for her, but she has made herself (and the rest of Fairhope) appear stupid and ridiculous. The Ripp Report’s mandate is to expose government corruption; you are harming the city by not covering Wilson’s own misdeeds. Perhaps if she could get her priorities in order, she could go to the Council and make some deals. She campaigned and won because of the Fly Creek Apartments. Arthur Corte stated in a meeting last week that it made no difference what the city or the citizens want; all that matters is where the ‘demand’ is. Why can’t she get behind her original plan and do something that benefits the City and not her unemployable friends? (Although, kudos for getting the best Planning Director ever…….how did that happen?)
Well said, G. Orwell. A planning director, however, is only as good as the administration s/he is working under. Considering all of the distractions Wilson has created, I simply do not foresee any significant progress being made in regards to FH growth issues. Still hoping for the best, however.
You both are as dumb as a box of rocks. The Council has been stirring the pot and trying to get the ethic charges to disappear. Have another glass of wine! Georgia Orwell, you haven’t made any sense since your first post. Get a grip and don’t act so stupid! I even think you are a little smarter than your post, but I’ve been wrong before.
I think Georgia is spot on. Folks/family don’t like what’s written, they name call and attack. Just like the Queen.
Easy. Deborah Smith has been supplying information to the members of the Council (especially Burrell and Brown) that should have been confidential. And yes, Jack Burrell is still under investigation by the Alabama State Ethics Commission. Next question!
Where is the proof that anyone is under investigation by anyone? Does the Alabama State Ethics Commission maintain a list of active investigations because I have never seen any proof of any of this? Investigative journalism is no longer funded so blogs have taken over. I appreciate the Ripp Report, but don’t ever believe everything you read.
That’s very good advice. Here’s some more: “Where is the proof that no one is under investigation?” See how that works? To put it simply, just because we may not know anything yet does not mean that an investigation is not going on. You think these people who undertake investigations have a responsibility to us to keep us apprised of what they’re learning until the indictments come down?
These ‘under investigation’ allegations have been flying around for years. I have never seen anyone take them seriously (outside of the city limits). Political corruption is rampant everywhere on earth and Fairhope is certainly no exception. Not enough of the voters seem to care how twisted and greedy our elected leaders are. Very sad but very true.
When someone files ethic complaint after ethic complaint, the ethic commission becomes deaf even if one may have some merit. When you scream fire every day and the firefighters come running and each time it there is no fire, then there is a real fire, the firefights keep eating their dinner. It is like when Sue tells the teacher, Paul hit me, Paul looked at me, Paul pulled my hair, well Sue, Paul was not at school today. Ohhhh. Well, I thought Paul did it. Two of the commissioners were senior circuit judges and they have heard it all before.
It is my understanding that council has the right to view anything within the government. If they ask for something they are allowed to view a document because they are responsible for all the financial matters within the city. My dealings with Ms. Smith has always been professional, she is one of the most professionals within the CPA industry. Her resigning is problematic, for her to resign tells all of us that something is wrong within the interworking of the city. From what I hear the ethics commission found no wrong doing and that came from an attorney I know in Montgomery. The people I have spoken with indicated that Ripp has asked others to investigate but those investigations are going nowhere. Anyone can file an ethics complaint but it doesn’t make it true. Anyone can call the FBI and tell them of wrongdoing but that doesn’t mean they are going to investigate, they do have an obligation to listen. All of the issues of the computers and tracking software is troubling, very troubling. The only good news about Ms. Smith’s resignation, she is not suing the mayor or city for wrongful discharge. All of this is so sad for the city, there are two companies that have told me directly they are not interested in doing business with Fairhope.
I have no doubt about the 2 companies not wanting to do business in Fairhope. No matter who you are pulling for or even trying to get everyone to work together. They all seem to purposely not want to get along or agree on anything.
There are more than 2, I have spoken to 4 different companies that stated they were not doing business with Fairhope because of the new administration actions. They don’t want to end up on some message board. One was seriously wanting to relocate to the airport but he felt if something happened then his company would end up being trashed. He was going to employee 20 new employees but relocated to another airport. It is a damn shame that we here in Fairhope are being laughed at because of computer issues. What many do not understand in this area of Alabama, most know each other and many are related. When you cross many of the old timers folks they take it real personally. The next election we need to find a mayoral candidate that has real executive experience, and has a positive message and does not companion on negatives. This all started during the campaign cycle. I wanted to change, just not this type of change. I truly believe that the council is trying to protect the city from more reputational harm. I am not sure who would want to work for this administration, the employees have to trust and if they think they are being taped, followed or whatever then the good people will not apply. Sad day for Fairhope!
“Anyone can file an ethics complaint but it doesn’t make it true.” Well, all I want to say about that is that these things take time and just because we don’t know more YET does not mean that we won’t. Now, let’s look at all the people who immediately took Pandora Heathcoe’s charge that the Mayor “assaulted” her as fact. Just because someone brings a charge against another does not make it true. Yet people always want to take sides and their side is always right, and the other side is always wrong. Also – “the people I have spoken with” say this and that is not really a compelling argument. Every one of us can find people to tell us whatever we want to hear. “For her to resign tells all of us that something is wrong within the interworking of the city.” OR – maybe she resigned to cover her butt because she knows she’s about to get in deep trouble for repeatedly and consistenly leaking information to GCM, who is clearly biased against the Mayor and everything she does. Certainly you are welcome to your opinions, but your opinions are only that; unfortunately you are cloaking those opinions in a way that tries to bolster your own case, whatever that might be.
The mayor did assault Pandora, that is factual. You can not touch someone when being animated. It seems that it is everyone else fault, the mayor tried to spin things but too many people are calling her out and it is the same theme. When there is a pattern and practice there is usually fault. What this mayor best hope is no one sues her for discrimination because they can bring witnesses from her high school days as witnesses!
But leaking things to the press is certainly not allowed. That’s as easy to prove as saying Jester is a moron. No doubt she is a nice lady. But a few things have caught up with her!
Do you have proof that she leaked them to the press? OR are you stating something false?
Goobs are so desperate. People see they corruption.
Georgia: “Don’t think that I wish that Wilson had not won.” It’s hard for anyone to believe that statement when you constantly post negative things about the Mayor. And: ” Mrs. Smith is a professional and I doubt that she would leak any information to anyone. ” Honestly, that’s just ridiculous. Are you honestly saying that a “professional” would have no reason to leak information to anyone? That’s LUDICROUS. She has friends who run Gulf Coast Media. They LOVE it when she leaks info to them that they can jump on immediately. This is what they do! For all we know they are PAYING her for leaked information. You really are naive.
When you file an ethics complaint the ethics commission will assign you a case number, that has been done. Then the ethics commission will investigate the matter and inform complainant of their findings, no notice has been given. These investigations take time and research and the ethics commission will neither confirm or deny any investigation is going on, that is their policy. The Council knows the ethics commission is investigating the airport and is lying when they say” the ethics commission found the complaints “baseless”. That is a bald face lie.
As far as the Elias invoices, I called for several days and no one from Elias would return my calls.I believe the paper version of the invoices is questionable at best. My statement about the money saved was based on the adjusted invoices, if any wrongdoing occurred I would have to assume it would be Elias that would have the liability to complain, I hear nothing. Personally I have run many Small business and it looks like every day bs that any business or municipal government has to deal with daily.
As far as Debroah Smith goes, she has been more than happy to speak to the same coupon paper that is printing her invoices. Jack “come fly with me” also quoted Smith as saying their were issues with her resignation with the city, however they left out those issues in the paper and Jack just alluded to problems. Please read between the lines. One other thing those documents were leaked from city hall they did not come from foia requests. Never in 12 years of research have I received documents without going through the right channels.Mr Burrell is knee deep in leaked documents and as far as the computers being tapped, they are city property and so is the content. I think in the long run we will find out that some employees hung themselves with electronic devices. Looks like we may get a lot of answers if the council forces the Mayor to court, a stupid move.
As far as your closing comments please read the recent post on Ripp Report, Freaky Friday.Mayor Wilson has tackled more in 8 months than the last three councils, that is a fact. Her reorganization of planning and Planning and Zoning is the most significant change in city government in many years. This will have an everlasting positive effect on Fairhope
The GOBs think they can spin it by saying…karin is the corrupt politician…karin is the good oleboy…LOL.
Goobers are dumber than a box of rocks.
Hey Jack and the goobs…
How you gonna rig it next time?
So the Jester is back. Who’s surprised? All narcissists suffer from the same delusion: that just because they like the sound of their own voice, everyone else does too.
Speak for yourself, there are many that believe Jester just calls it like it is. I am sure Jester is a narcissist, but so is the Mayor, Ripp, Dean, most on the Council and a lot of others too. All leaders are narcissistic that is what makes leaders good leaders. Who is the Jester anyway, did anyone figure out is Jester is a man or woman? He/she has turned this site up side down as of late. There was a time when Ripp focused on ANYONE that was doing wrong, but it seems all he does now is support the mayor even when she is wrong. Sorry.
Agreed….Karin could shoot tourists on Section Street in view of everyone, and the Ripp Report would report that she was protecting the ‘Citizens’. The Ripp Report should be equally truthful about all government corruption and stop giving her a free pass.
Somebody should search the dark web for jester666 and see what kind of drugs or who knows what he was after. He probably used the same handle.
