Fairhope in 2018 is IN THE DARK, refusing to look forward and recognize the lighting speed of change. The last city council meeting in Fairhope for 2018 was more of the same:



Fairhope is being held back by a City Council that is chasing its tail. The Catalyst, at large council, was successful in derailing any change of government. IGNORANCE IS BLISS IGNORANCE IS BLISS |…

The council was in full re-election mode and decided that Fairhope was for non drinking “Christians”.
It should be noted the good Baptist led the charge to kill the entertainment District. What the good non-drinking Baptist are not telling you is how their Minister with the help of former Mayor Can’t, broke every planning and zoning rule there is to expand their Church and parking. Sorry they do not call it a parking lot, it is a grass lot where a house was destroyed so people could “put their car” on Sunday, while in Church. They destroyed the neighbor hood around the Church and continue to expand further into the neighborhood. What the hell! they are the largest voting block in Fairhope and delivered the NO vote on Change of Government, so they have the council indebted to them.

The council was talking like they had marbles in their mouth, they could not suck up or eat enough crow. They need those Baptist votes.

The Council also swore in Fairhope Municipal Judge Snedecker for another two years. This is the council pick and the Council president led the charge to secure the good Judge another two years.



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…

It is a small world in Fairhope, Ronan McSharry, of McSharry’s is a close friend of Jack Burrell and a frequent flier in Judge Snedecker’s court. If Fairhope cannot have an entertainment district then how is a rouge bar owner allowed to break the law over and over again?

If the police chief has to approve liquor serving establishments then the chief should also recommend the cancellation of a liquor license at any establishment that demonstrates time and time again their disdain for the law.



Corruption has many faces. In Fairhope the local arrest of a bar owner, Ronan McSharry, drew little more than a paragraph of coverage and little or no print media has covered the story.

The council last action of the year, was deliberately last on the agenda was:

23. Resolution – That Mayor Karin Wilson is hereby authorized to execute an Engagement Letter with Tobias McCormick and Comer Lawyers, LLC for Professional Legal Services for representation of The City of Fairhope, Alabama, on the Third-Party Complaint against Charter Oak Fire Insurance Company in the matter of Charles K/ Breland, Jr. V. The City of Fairhope, Alabama, et al., CV-2013-901096.

The Council spent the majority of the meeting kissing the feet of the non-drinking Baptist. That was a dog and pony show meant to distract you from much more serious issues. They invited the good Baptist to leave the council chambers, once they voted no on the entertainment district, so “you could wrap Christmas presents.” No one person asked a single question about item 23. When it came to item 23 NOT A WORD, from the Council and the Baptist were all gone home.



Fairhope is playing Russian Roulette in court and the city council has not said a word to the general public. The gun is cocked and aimed at the head of the Fairhope council, the absolute worst in 20…

Please Read:

The council has been taking the position of character assassination and blaming the property owner, that has been their defense! They did not pay attention when the Alabama Supreme Court ruled unanimously, 9-0, in favor of the owner and sent the case back to Baldwin County. This case started, about 11 years ago, before the Mayor or Council were elected to office, however the council ignored the serious position the city is in, just like the triangle lawsuit, and the need to settle the case.

So all you folks that thought the entertainment district was bad, may want to ask the council about the multi-million dollar lawsuit they may face if they cannot settle the case. Remember the triangle lawsuit that cost us 11.25 million? Is this going to be a repeat because the council just keeps digging the hole deeper, by keeping us in court.

The legal fees for the triangle lawsuit, was 3 million. The city was dropped by its insurance carrier and the taxpayers picked up the bill. It now appears the council is going to try and stick the insurance company again with another lawsuit. You cannot make this up.

Fairhope City Council cannot see its hand in front of its face because they are IN THE DARK.

    Jack is smart er than you Ripp.
    Admit it.

    • How creative and what great wit you have there Reginald. Damn, you must be smarter than all Jack and Ripp combined. You are my hero! I think you should write all the articles from now on. Take a break from the bottle little man.

  2. McSharry’s is a local hangout for get Goid Ole Boys. More city business gets done there than in City Hall

  3. McSharrys is ground zero for catalyst. Tried the Burrell burger. It was undercooked and bland.

    • The other ground zero is Timber Creek Country Cub

    • McSharry’s and Jack Burrell combined is a perfect recipe for dog crap. More worthless people go to McSharrys than to the Faihope City Council meetings. As long as we don’t have younger people getting involved with making a change in this sorry ass town we will continue to all stink and sink. There is more white headed people at the city council meetings than there is snow in North Dakota. Neither the Dumbass old people or stipid younger people do anything to make this a better place. Go figure. I have been here for 40 years and still cannot figure out why there are so many dumbasses, especially the old farts in the city. About 75% of the senior citizens don’t even have a clue what Burrell and the other pricks are doing to this town. Can’t blame all of them though, these younger people won’t take the time to get rid of the garbage, even when it’s sitting right next to them. You old farts need to stay at home and shut the hell up. Spent all your time growing old to worship Jack Burrell. Dammit! What a waste of a nice city.

    Merry Christmas Ripp!
    Let’s shine the brightest light on catalyst in 2019. They are Fairhopers biggest enemy.

    The entire city council.

    • Catalyst Cancer | December 23, 2018 at 9:06 pm |

      Catalyst is not just ruining Dairhope but ALL of Baldwin County. From the Commission in Vay Minette to Daphne to Spanish Fort to Foley to Gulf Shores, this county is eaten up with candidates that have sold their souls to get elected and are now owned by Catalyst. Catslyst is paid for by Cox, Truland, DR Horton, and Prebble. Tucker may have lost his seat but they just put more in office

    38k in 36532.
    Time to sell boyz.

  6. This site is lies.
    Kant is a good Christian.

    • Merry Catalyst Christmas | December 25, 2018 at 12:27 pm |

      (sung to the tune of “White Christmas”)
      I’m dreaming of a Catalyst Christmas just like the ones I use to know
      Where builders buy the good ole boys
      And give them lots of toys
      And turn this place in a town of woe
      I’m dreaming of a Catalyst Christmas
      With every Christian ploy they tap
      May your roads be crowded and blocked
      And may your Mobile Bay be full of crap

    • Hey Castle!!!Get you head out of your ass!!! Seems when I pass I won’t be seeing you and Kant. I heard it’s hot down there. But Castle and Kant will enjoy it. Too Funny. I’d say Merry Christmas, but Christians like you and Kant are not the ones who worship Jesus

      • Not afraid of Corte | December 25, 2018 at 10:26 pm |

        Oh Citizen, don’t be too hard on Kant. He was a good mayor until Corte made him pass the apartments deal. Corte is getting greedy in his old age.

      • Kant is in church every Sunday. Unlike most of you.

    Let’s talk E. Coli in the bay. I have a neighbor with a marine sciences degree. He said he caught two fish from the pier and brought them to work and analyzed them and found e coli in the fish gills.

    How does the epa allow adem not to enforce the laws on the books about water quality?

    Why do they allow jubilies if the fish are contaminated with poo?

    • ADEM is a joke | December 26, 2018 at 9:34 am |

      Because ADEM is a joke to begin with. It is just s tool to excuse polluters if the polluters are political friends and fine enemies.
      If ADEM is ever forced by the feds to fine the city, then the city will just pay it with YOUR tax dollars
      The builders always win…..

    I am worried about the growth happening so fast. Why no new roads or schools? Why only bridges to the beach for beach condo rentals?
