Well after a few weeks rest from Chucky Cheese and his creative articles, gleamed from information provided by Mr Jack Burrell, Catalyst and Robert Brown, Chucky has delivered another non article.

Fairhope Financial Advisory Committee at standstill

Fairhope Financial Advisory Committee at standstill

Fairhope’s Financial Advisory Committee is currently at a standstill, as FAC Chairman Chuck Zunk said recent actions taken by Mayor Karin Wilson could make it difficult, if not impossible, for …


This is the same old obstruction process Burrell has been pushing since Tim Kant lost.


Well Chucky Cheeze and “come fly with me” Burrell have come up with their new hit piece on the Mayor of Fairhope. They are reminding the general public of their support for fired employees and how…


The Fairhope City Council has been a disaster and is the most corrupt in recent memory. The silent council members are equally guilty by remaining silent and putting friends before their elected office.



Catalyst is a political cancer found in Baldwin County. It hand picks political candidates. Catalyst was formally Stacy Elliott and Haygood, the birth of the cancer, that morphed into Catalyst when…


Councilman Robert Brown:



The Public Doctrine: Our government is a democracy which means the “people rule.” At this time in our democracy it seems there are less people involved, which results in a serious challenge to the…


supports Mr Burrell’s financial committee, why won’t he? He sure has enjoyed the fruits of elected office. Jack taught Brown everything he knows about how to control bid committees and how to secure a contract, while being an elected official.

The City Council in Fairhope accomplished very little in the first year, other than obstruct the Mayor. Last year a major obstruction went on for three months, the city budget. It clearly is the responsibility of the council to approve the budget. For three months the Mayor extended an olive branch to the council in an effort to get an approved budget. The council members have been absent for meetings and spent very little effort to approve a budget. The council has offered lame excuses or asked mundane questions that have done little to resolving the issue.

The City Budget is the responsibility of the Mayor. Mr. Burell, with the assistance of the council set up a hand picked financial committee, who he wants to assume the duties of preparing the budget. Mr. Chuck Zunk, formally from the infamous Airport Board was recruited to “head” the committee, and to carry Burrell’s water, again. You do remember the Fairhope Airport and Mr Burrell’s one man bid committee?


I have followed four Fairhope city councils and one thing I can tell you is with each new council several things became abundantly clear. The new members of the council are usually influenced by…


The Mayor prepares a budget, and it takes the council over 4 months to approve it and now the council wants to appoint a Jack Burrell finance committee, that wishes the Mayor step aside and let them do the budget. Clearly the boys are flying high.

The finance committee is a farce just like the Airport. An honest and reliable finance committee would insist that the Fairhope Airport, purchased and financed by tax dollars, title, be in the City’s name, not the Airport Authority.

Go fly a plane Chuck and take Jack with you he loves free plane rides.

Wake up Fairhope it is time for Jack and Brown to step down.


A DOCUMENT FOR CATALYST A police report is a public document, it is not a Ripp Report, it is a police report. The Ripp Report has received several tips involving Mr Jack Burrell and the law. What was…


The stink around the Airport is not the sewer, or geese.

    On one hand I wonder that if the City of Fairhope cannot take title to the airport, then why cannot the city STOP paying for the airport?
    On the other hand why is the airport not in the City’s name?

  2. Anonymous | May 25, 2018 at 4:25 pm |

    Council appoints a finance committee to do their job and now abstracting the mayor who is doing her job. That sounds about right for this group

    • Take Fairhope Back | May 25, 2018 at 7:16 pm |

      Can’t wxit to sweep this bunch of council members out of office. All of them need to be sent home

    • I think Ripp is in favor of the finance committee, he was critical of the city council there was not one. Now, Ripp is critical of the committee – Ripp forgets what he has said in the past.

  3. Anonymous | May 25, 2018 at 7:14 pm |

    So if it is illegal for the airport to be in a different entity other than the city, then why is it still in the suthority’s name? Surely a foul would have been called earlier

    • Francis Ripp | May 28, 2018 at 7:22 am |

      It is not illegal, however it is not in the best interest of the city. The city paid for it so the city should own it.

  4. Keep up the fight, Karin. We love you. You have taken on all these men and remained strong. You remind me of Lady Margaret Thatcher

    • Red Huffman | May 25, 2018 at 11:22 pm |

      Very much. Get her a funny hat.

      • the funny hats are already being worn by the cucks on the council. The others lack the courage to stand up to Boone and Burrell

    • Anonymous | May 26, 2018 at 1:42 am |

      You’re an idiot too

    • Luther Strangeness | May 26, 2018 at 5:33 pm |

      Please Jack run against Karin!

      • Rippster Fan | May 27, 2018 at 9:53 pm |

        If Jack runs then Jack will have to answer to all those people in Rock Creek and Woodlands why he let all those apartments go up in their backyard and why Parker Road intersection is like a war zone.

  5. Paul Rippster FAN | May 25, 2018 at 11:33 pm |

    So are the men in Fairhope ok with Jack?

    • Hell no. Don’t even won’t the person if it’s a man to even have the first name. We ARE going to get rid of Jackass Burrell during the next election. What a stupid ass thug we have had to put up with. He has done NO good for anyone except for himself. Sorry Shit Ass. Wish he would talk to some of us like he does others, but he knows he would have to picked up off the floor.

    • Anonymous | May 29, 2018 at 4:39 pm |

      Only the wimpy ass creeps put up with Jack. No, Jack is going. It’s the damage before he and the other pricks do is what we have keep at a minimum.

  6. Gordon Stafford Rock Creek | May 26, 2018 at 7:59 am |

    Meanwhile…another massive fecal spill in Fairhope waters…Jubilee anyone?
    Can you say real estate prices falling?
    Untreated waste in rivers, lakes, ponds and bays.
    Crooked city council.
    Stolen funds.
    Unlevel soccer fields.
    Multi-million dollar payoffs to the Dyas Family.
    A leaky roof on the library that has never stopped.
    A council prez who likes to diddle.

    • The sewage spill is due to the overbuilding on the east and north side of town. This overbuilding is because these developers own the council or are builders themselves
      Just drive around and look at the subdivisions being built. Now imagine where the sewers go. Are you now surprised at why the bay is now a septic tank?
      Ask the politicians why they have let this hapoen

      • Huntsville transplant | May 26, 2018 at 12:08 pm |

        There is no end in sight. Disgusting is what boone and burrell are. Robert Brown is a first rate thief. Thr other two are wussy boys.

      • Eaglescout | May 26, 2018 at 12:34 pm |

        Kortes new apartments bring 500 cars at a minimum.

        • Fairhope Oracle | May 26, 2018 at 4:30 pm |

          Thanks Corte for ruining Fairhope. How long will it be until you get County Road 13 clogged up? We don’t buy your phony philanthropy of letting the county cut through your farmland. Yiu just did this so you could sell subdivision land

          • Anonymous | May 26, 2018 at 7:38 pm |

            Criticize those who have made this place all you want. Fairhope will pay the price when the rains come this week. Blame that on doers too. Thankfully the city will continue to grow and progress. RC

            • Fairhope Oracle | May 26, 2018 at 9:11 pm |

              Are you a Catalyst? I

            • Fairhope Oracle | May 27, 2018 at 7:07 am |

              The way some see progress with crowded subdivisions with Mobile Bay as a sewer is not the same as some others. The mega developers such as DR Horton, Truland, and Belaton are RAPING Fairhope.
              We must stop these rapist developers from destroying our toen

          • Fairhope Oracle | May 26, 2018 at 8:43 pm |

            Amen. Cortw has hurt Fairhope

          • Georgia Orwell | May 26, 2018 at 8:49 pm |

            I agree with you, but don’t blame Corte……he is just a greedy land-owner who aspires to be Mafia. The blame lies squarely with Nix, Kant, Burrell, Boone (add Brown proudly to the top of the list). He purchased those greedy men and he got what he paid for. Fairhope should learn from this lesson finally, but I am guessing not!

  7. Jesterh8ter | May 26, 2018 at 7:23 pm |

    Chucky lets Jack write his articles.

  8. Quailridge | May 26, 2018 at 7:27 pm |

    Ok so Burrell has become the kingpin by selling his soul to the local developers and apparently the judges.

    He must be voted out.

    Let’s do it.

    • Fairhope Oracle | May 27, 2018 at 7:00 am |

      Oh yes, let’s do it. The next election he must be defeated and sent home so bad that he will never even think of running for anything in Baldwin County again. Maybe he will go bsck to Mississippi

  9. Legalview | May 27, 2018 at 7:34 am |

    How much did Fairhope pay Ripp for the lawsuit? Who represented the city or Jack Burrell in this free speech case?

    • Francis Ripp | May 28, 2018 at 7:28 am |

      Nothing has been paid and nothing has been settled. The taxpayers of Fairhope are paying Jack’s legal fees. The taxpayers also paid his attorney fees for the Airport scandal. Think about that the taxpayers are paying Jack Burrell’s legal fees for his illegal conduct.

  10. Tinybelle | May 27, 2018 at 10:57 am |

    I am surprised no one has the balls to stand up to Jack Burrell.

    I may have to. Although I only weigh a hundred pounds.

  11. Old Fairhope | May 27, 2018 at 8:12 pm |

    Fairhope will never change, because it already has. It will never be the same as it was when it was 10,000. We are at about 30,000 in 36532. I’d say fifty k in about two years at the rate we go now. We need more apartment complexes anyway. They allow for average folk to have a life in Fairhope.

    • Why can’t “Average folk” have houses like the rest of the folk? Apartment complexes eventually become trouble spots.

    • Francis Ripp | May 28, 2018 at 7:31 am |

      The apartments will rent for 1100 single 1400 double and 1600 for a triple. That is not rent for “average people” that is a mortgage payment. What is wrong with the apartments is location location location

  12. Any word on what the FBI investigation in fairhope is about?
    Enquiring minds want to know!

    • ScrEnquiring As Well | May 28, 2018 at 1:37 pm |

      Probably about some grant misappropriation. Ripp will keep us in suspense. Stop teasing us, Ripp! You got us wondering!

  13. Kortney Sophist | May 28, 2018 at 12:42 pm |

    How long until Fairhope becomes a throwaway city on the bay? Polluted. Corrupted. Disrupted.
