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 council meeting Monday night. They know that they should not be meeting, as per open meetings rules, with a quorum of the council, but hell they had to get their stories straight over a drink. This is proof that council members are meeting in a quorum, discussing what? Read line 4, page 2, number 1. DELIBERATION
The busy bees, along with Jester 666 and Gulf Coast News Courier have been working overtime to obstruct the mayor any way possible. For years I complained to the Alabama Sec. Of State about what I believed to be election fraud. The response was always the same, wait until the next election and vote the candidate out. We took that advise and had oversight by the Sec. of State at the last election, Fairhope’s first, fair election. The busy bees do not want to wait. They want Mayor Wilson out and Jack Burrell in, NOW. They are fearful of investigations involving them and the last administration. Bees have small brains and they have convinced themselves if they can get rid of the mayor and replace her with a king, that their problems will go away and they can build the Good ole Boy hive back.
The latest brain storm to come from the bees and pollinated by the Courier is that the mayor needs to be investigated relative to some city invoices. No other than the king bee, come fly with me Burrell, is demanding a full investigation. Soldier bee Brown, aka the Jester, firmly supports the king as well as LLC bee, Boone.
We are talking about a few thousand dollars that has the bees so outraged that they are stinging themselves. The Courier has been provided all the invoices. How did they obtain city documents without a foia request? Did it come from a worker bee who is leaving the hive?
Why don’t the bees investigate:
1. The sewer contract that grew from 10 million to 13 million without addressing the sewer infrastructure.
2. The triangle lawsuit, 11.25 million, 3 million in attorney fees. This lawsuit was settled by the last council, with no public participation, King bee and LLC bee both were on the council.
3. Soccer fields, 5 to 6 million, investigate that! And be sure to audit all funds given by single tax and the city to fund bathrooms. Investigate the contractors and sub contractor. I bet some busy bees got some honey from those fields.
4. Investigate the “gift” from a developer who LLC bee and solider bee have business dealings with but continue to favor with their vote.
5. Investigate GCN and the Courier and see who is leaking city documents to the press, covered in honey.
6. Investigate the airport. King bee has several ethics complains against him related to the airport. The council is holding its nose and hoping that the matter is whitewashed away. That is not going to happen. The airport, like the soccer fields, were corrupt from purchase to present.
The Ripp Report closes out 2016 with congratulations to John Sharp Al.com. Sparks fly in Fairhope: New mayor, council president dispute airport finances, personnel changes Mayor Karin Wilson and…
The airport gets millions of dollars and education gets thousands while the airport produces not one dime for the city. The city pays all the bills and the airport authority hold the title to the land. Insanity.
YOU DON’T KNOW JACK
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…
Listed are only 6 items that represent over 50 million dollars and the busy bees want to look at a trumped up bias claim, that they think will deflect attention away from the bees.
Look on the bright side bees do not live long and these busy bees will end up stinging themselves.
I’m impressed. You never give up. Like a true Marine!!!
This site reminds of the movie the Gladiator, as the General stated – they don’t know when they are defended. The Marine’s don’t have enough of ‘the few good men’ to win this battle. Jester now owns that Marine!
We the people of Fairhope really don’t give a damn who Jester is. We all know that Mr. Brown is a lying turd and that’s a fact. Jester, say what you want to. It really doesn’t matter if you are for or against the Mayor or the Councilmen. Keep on posting Jester. We enjoy it. Look forward to the jestering while the Mayor and the Councilmen are testifying under oath. It’s coming and won’t be soon enough.
Speak for yourself. I don’t enjoy Jester, not one little bit. Maybe the first couple of months he was somewhat entertaining but now he’s got nothin’ new, just blah blah blah. You know the old expression about “jumping the shark”? Yeah, Jester jumped it awhile back but loves to hear himself so much he just can’t leave.
I told you fools the terms on my disappearance. If Frances will apology for saying Jester is Brown, I will leave! BUT I reserve the right to post if others are calling the council members names! It is pretty simple, did I make that easy enough for your feeble little mind to understand? AND talking about nothing new, Frances post the same crap over and over and over and over and over again. HE files all these complaints and yet, NONE are proven to bear any truth. When someone files something and it is proven untrue, then a real man will admit they are wrong. Jester loves to jest too!
Strike Fast! Lean Forward! Strike Hard!
The difference is (and I hate that it has to be explained to you) this is Francis Ripp’s site, not yours. So he can say whatever the hell he wants to, and does, with proof. Because he’s no fool and is not going to put himself in legal jeopardy. Now you, Jester, are simply a contributor to Ripp’s page. This is not your site, so hijacking it with your bullsh*t is annoying to all of us but those in your corner, i.e. other Council members and their families and friends. What would be cool is if you start your own blog where you can post all your theories and fairy tales that nobody has to read except those who follow you. This seems win/win to me. You’d get nothing but positive stroking, which you seem to need, and the rest of us would not have to listen to your inane ramblings.
Why do jay and gary carry jacks dirty water?
Because they can!
This is a fools game! Ripp has stated that Jester is a council member and that is FALSE!
AND I don’t give a Ripp what you think! You don’t know Jack!
If you don’t like the blog, Jester, why do you continue to troll every post? The comparison Paul left out is the fact that both Jester and Robert are immature and inarticulate.
You are full of crap! Stay out of our town! Not your town! Not your business!
It’s not Jester’s or Brown’s town either unless you consider its theirs to ruin!
I love how Frances now can read people’s minds, once again crying with no facts. Please read on page 4, line 2 through the end of page 4 and then on page 5 through line 2. Frances, why do you spin the facts into half-truths? Do you really believe that everyone that reads this blog is that stupid, well, maybe most not all of them are! You are certainly on the defense as late, maybe I will state charging you for my remarks!
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!
Bye, Bye Mr. Tipp the lie,
He drove his Chevy to the level
then fell inside,
Put the bottle down
Just so the Autism supporters don’t worry to much. I have every post that was made in 2017 regarding Tripp Pittman’s Facebook account. Will be sending it out to all the main stream media groups as necessary especially when Tripp Pittman lies about something that was either posted or not posted. It will be sent. Then the entire list of comments will be distributed. What a joke of a politician! Hell, Burrel and Brown even look good compared to Pittman. Bit my dang tounge on that one and I hope that the Fairhope City Councilmen all know the day is coming when they will be forced to comment under oath.
A separate page is being developed for Tripp, stay tuned, post all the comments on that site
The media will not report it…….wasting your time! Baldwin County is the seventh circle of hell politically.
Media is a disappointment. No coverage. Ripp report isall we got
Not to worry I said. It’s just not the media that will get Tripp Pittman’s Facebook post regarding Autism which he has omitted he could care less about the autism bill and all of those afffected by it, including the ones who have it and their families. But individuals, organizations, civic clubs and members of all the chambers of commerce will get Tripp Pittman’s Facebook post and his comments. We don’t count on the media. We count on the people who will care about reading some of the material about the worst politician ever!!!
The goobs love freaky friday.
So much love from the Ripp stir.
Just who is Jester 666 and how do you know for sure it is that person, Ripp???
He doesn’t, Frances is chasing a ghost and he knows this but he hates getting made a fool of. If anyone wants to see the look on Frances’ face when he was owned during the council meeting, it is the website! The look on his face was priceless!
Robert you are a disgrace.
Robert Brown For Our Hometown is having a rough week. But don’t forget “This is my hometown. I look forward to serving the people of Fairhope and will help lead in preserving Fairhope’s character and quality of life. This includes trying to achieve a unified vision of what the future of Fairhope will look like.”
A rough week, because he put in a letter what most in Fairhope are saying in private!
The Ripp Report content is what most citizens in private are thinking about and that is why Mayor Karin Wilson won the election.
Yep, all 20! Then we elected her and now ask folks! I will have to give the mayor credit for the hiring of Dyess, which is a great addition to the city. I am amazed she listened to the person that recommended him. Outside of that hire, she has fallen flat.
That’s a Fly suit Jack has on.
Come fly with me.
Won’t you bee mine?
This is disturbing to me because this is all speculation. Boone, Brown and Burrell are on the Council together but they are also long-time friends (don’t ask me why Brown would want to be friends with them). I see nothing sinister in the three of them going out for a drink after the Council Meeting. If they were having a few drinks and laughing about Robert Brown being accused of being Jester 666, how was illegal?
In my opinion, Burrell and Boone are a cancer within Fairhope; however, until we get rid of Mayor Wilson, they are a necessity.

Gestures Of A Jester
He’s a very sad bloke
In his jingling hat
Until he falls down
How do you like that?
Juggling his hope
As he drops his shame
Watch as he struggles
Are you not entertained!?
He is the punchline
Of his every joke
Laugh with him
He is your very sad bloke
He is your very sad bloke
How does Robert Brown even walk around town?
I love it too!!!! It is always good to have a sense of humor because this is such as sad place! I have seen some tax returns, all obtained legally, that show a tie of the mayor to certain people that she should have a tie too. More to come!
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!
So how long were the elections being rigged in Fairhope?
Do y’all think the county commission race elections are rigged?
What about Sheriff? I think Hoss Mack rigged his. Everybody hates that little bald pig.
Kants father in law rigged the city elections going back to nix. I dont know how they rig the county races but i know they deliver votes to statewide candidates. Its super corrupt.
Fake news. No elections have EVER been rigged in Fairhope or Baldwin County. Ripp you are a weak little man.
You are too negative! Do you ever have anything good to say. Get your head out of the mud or run for office!
Ripp has a bigger impact on the sideline.
Frances is like Pelosi, we want him to hang around! Going to be really good for business come 2020.
Why doesn’t someone sue this man?
Which man are you referring to?? Brown or Ripp??
I heard the goobs bought the largest tube of lipstick in the world. So they can smear it all over Jack Burrell before he challenges Mayor Wilson.
I have been reading Ripp Report and not adding anything to the conversation for months but have to step in and say all you christians have some sympathy here! Jester Triple 6 is a pitiful individual that is just looking for and needing a little understanding here. He may not have anyone to listen to him and he has found an audience here and just wants wants to feel a part of his local society. Can we not come together and help everyone feel that they belong and have a say in matters?? Jester is just trying to become a part of what is going on in our town and just because if might not match your feelings does not mean his or her opinion is not important ! Lighten up people! Jester it is ok for you to voice your opinion! Christians should be more tolerant !
Tolerance stop drinking the cool aid
I’m on my way to Church. Please, let’s all just ignore this weak and pitiful Jester poster and get on board with making our city great. If some of Jester’s fans want to post something then let them do it. They will show support and some criticism towards Jester just to get you distracted and frustrated. Ignore it. The true citizens are very smart and realize that this will all come to a head very soon. Let Jester post until the cows come home. Big deal. If he’s getting to you. He’s the winner. Stop now. Make a commitment to ignore Jester and that goes for you to Ripp. Let the evil post by Jester roll off of our backs. We are mature and intelligent people. Now. Have a great Sunday and let’s get back to positive thinking and matters at hand. I have total confidence that this can be achieved beginning right now! Thank you. I believe in you all.
Jest as he came in the night, Jester will leave in night.
Great suggestion! I hope everyone reads, listens and follows.
I like the Jester commits, he/she does offer a different perspective.
This has been fun but not real fun. This will be my last post, but before I do this it is time to explain how the Jester came about. I did indeed post on here to show some just how absurd this blog can be. It is really sad sometimes, and not always truthful. I hope the name calling will stop, everyone has family, children and they can find this place. Remember, you leave a digital footprint, everything you post, you send over the net is there for perpetuity. So, please be thoughtful when accusing folks of wrongdoing without proof.
Jester was my call sign when I flew in the military (Army), and I dropped hits along the way but I guess those that never served didn’t pick up on. I thought Ripp would have figured it out but his head was in the wrong place.
The name came about because I did indeed sing that damn song when flying, and the Triple-Six was added after we went to war.
I would send my wingman to 4,000-ft to hold while I circled low and slow. My other pilots in the unit always stated that I dance with the devil because of the risked I would take so the call sign stuck. You don’t get to choose your call sign, but you have to accept it. So, yes, I flew attack in the Amry and flew AH-1S, when we turned our Cobra’s in for Apache’s I chose to fly fix-wing and had to fly intelligence missions, RC-12’s and OV-1’s. I am a man!
I never talked much about my time in the military because it haunts me, I resigned my commission after I had a moral moment. Please did not misread me, I love this country and I am proud of my service but America is not always right. The only people that know this about me, outside of my wife is one other person and the men that served with. They knew when they called me on the frequency, usually an FM freq, they knew I would roll in a help.
Yes, I know how to research the deep web, and got caught down there once and my identity was stolen, had to get a new everything and SSN, that was a nightmare. That is why I stated do not venture down there unless you know what you are doing and never trust anyone in the deep web.
I am not Brown, I believe he served in the Calvary, they were the misfits and renegades, we were the attack company. I was an officer and he was enlisted (I think). I dropped more crumbs for everyone to pick up on but…
Unfortunately, I would have added a few more remarks in the letter Brown sent. In the beginning, I really supported the mayor but there have indeed been too many mistakes. In life, most will find when running a company it is about Human Capital. Just because you have the power to do something do not mean when to do a task it right.
I am a semi-retired executive that decided to have a more work-life-balance and I usually take off in the summer months, so the time to post. I am not a politician but I do listen, and boy, do people like to talk. Besides, I can write much better than Brown.
I do not know the council and have only met 3 of them briefly. I did enjoy the bookstore but the political environment is sad.
I want to offer a personal apology to Frances Paul Ripp for leading him down a path of no return. It was not funny (to him) when you asked Brown if he was Jester, but the look on Paul’s face when Brown said NO, that look was priceless. I probability need to apology to Brown but guys, I tried to tell you I was not Brown. And I warned Ripp not to do it, but that hard head had to do it.
I must call bingo, return to base to refuel and rearm. On the side of my cockpit was my name: Maj $&#$&* “Jester” !*@$)*&#
If anyone can figure out who I am they will be a daisy if they do! So with that, I bid each of you farewell!
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!
The day the music died,
We were signing bye bye
Yeah right…..what an imagination.
Name change coming. MORON
So long, thanks for nothing but your countless, unending attacks on every single person who thinks differently than you.
Bye Robrt. Forget abiut reelection.
Very sad. I don’t believe much of this post, but it is sad that some lonely person has tried so hard to become important in a community that does not see him.
That said, please don’t ‘stir the pot’ in a soup of controversy. The Ripp Report has been correct on so many issues in the past, but it is definitely ignoring the mistakes of Mayor Wilson.
If Mayor Wilson would admit/correct her errors and the Ripp Report would deign to report them, the City might move forward.
The Ripp Report is losing its credibility by giving her a ‘free pass’ for Botox and Lynn, but
Kudos for recognizing the talent of our new Planning Director and acknowledging it.
Fingers crossed for Fairhope!
“Yes, I know how to research the deep web, and got caught down there once and my identity was stolen, had to get a new everything and SSN, that was a nightmare. That is why I stated do not venture down there unless you know what you are doing and never trust anyone in the deep web.” I’m sorry, that is hilarious. The deep web is designed to hide identities and you manage to lose it? Admit it, you did something stupid to lose that info like type it in somewhere. I think you have a lot of research to do before you make up your next identity.
So when does Jack B. learn of his ethics problems?
Jest-a-Moron has been watching Top Gun too much…”Hey GOBer’s, you can be my Wingman anytime.”
