Local Music Group "The Tip Tops" split up. Half the group will now perform as "Just the Tip".


Mobile's now famed music ensemble The Tip Tops who play along the Gulf Coast performing Motown and pop hits from the last 50 years have officially split up. The cause for the break up is due to rising tension over the years concerning singing responsibilities, choreography, and an ongoing argument about the proper topping on a Hot Dog. The newly formed group "Just the Tip" made up of half the former group will be touring around the Eastern Shore this month as the remaining half has booked a residency at Callaghan's of Mobile playing Irish Gigs as "Top o' the Mornin".

Farihope man sues Bruce Larsen over new statues, "He borrowed my car and turned it into a Seahorse!".


A Fairhope resident and former friend of local artist Bruce Larsen has pressed charges against the sculptor regarding the new seahorse statues placed downtown this week. The man claims he let Bruce borrow his Toyota Camry to "drive to Birmingham" last month and his friend then refused to take his calls. He assumed Bruce was busy, but last week while walking downtown he discovered the new seahorse themed statues, then noticed a Toyota radiator as well as his car keys within the sculpture. Further investigating caused him to believe this was in fact his car, as well as other items he had let his friend borrow over the years including a weedeater and his tools. Bruce has confronted police officials denying all allegations while lustfully eyeing the officer's shiny metal badge and handcuffs, which he then asked to borrow for a short time.

Theatre on the Bluff adds new VIP seating


People are saying the VIP seating for CATS was well worth the money! Eastern Shore Repertory Theatre had the idea to utilize a human size litter box to seat the VIP's this year and people loved it, but so did every stray cat in Baldwin County who seemed to have made use of the box for days before the performance. Guests seated in the box didn't complain however, some claiming it made the experience more life-like.

BREAKING: Changes to the First Baptist church steeple are nearing completion early Thursday morning. The church is graciously accepting a generous donation from the Shunnarah Law Firm which should allow them to have a much better Christmas program than the Fairhope United Methodist across the street. The old steeple was donated to the Robertsdale Renaissance Fair to be used this weekend in probably the most entertaining and unfair jousting tournament ever.

City Council votes to reduce downtown speed limit to Zero freezing everyone in place for eternity.


In a sudden and unforeseen move Friday morning, the Fairhope City Council motioned to reduce the downtown speed limit to zero mph, effectively freezing the downtown population in place for all of eternity. Several dozen cars now stand locked in place in the streets of downtown fearing any movement lest they be ticketed and fined. Pedestrians who are also subject to the ruling stay frozen in the streets as well. Future historians and anthropologists may one day find the lost community of Fairhope, which they will call "The City Froze in Time", and they will ponder the cause of the fall of this great empire.

Drama, Political infighting, and deceit: a journey into the world of the Mystic Mutt Parade.


In the heart of the bustling streets of Fairhope, amidst the vibrant chaos of Mardi Gras, a tale of canine curiosity and revelry unfolds. Meet Mrs. Bigglesworth, a four-legged Shi-Tzu with a nose for the truth and a penchant for adventure. Little did she know, her journey would lead her into the colorful world of the Mystic Mutts of Revelry, a Mardi Gras Krewe unlike any other.

It all began innocently enough, with Mrs. Bigglesworth sniffing out a scent of mystery in the air. Intrigued, she followed her instincts straight into the heart of the Mystic Mutts parade. Decked out in beads and feathers, she blended right in among the revelers, her tail wagging with excitement.

But as Mrs. Bigglesworth delved deeper into the inner workings of the Mystic Mutts, she uncovered a world of drama, deceit, and lies that would make even the most wild mutt whimper in disbelief. Behind the glittering facade of the parade floats lurked a tangled web of secrets and betrayals.

First, there was the case of the missing king cake, a beloved Mardi Gras tradition. Mrs. Bigglesworth caught wind of whispers among the mutts that pointed to an inside job. Could it be that one of their own was behind the confectionary caper? The evidence surfaced later as a plastic baby peaked out from one of the dog's own cakes which sat in the road steaming, and pointing accusations towards a guilty looking Labradoodle.

Then there was the scandalous rumor of a mutt who had been caught sneaking out to join a rival parade. The air was thick with accusations and finger-pointing as Mrs. Bigglesworth listened in on the juicy gossip.

And let's not forget the tale of the mutt who claimed to have seen the infamous Mardi Gras bead thief in action. Was it a case of mistaken identity, or was there more to this canine's story than met the eye?

Through it all, Mrs. Bigglesworth remained undeterred, her determination unwavering as she sniffed out clues and unraveled the truth behind the Mystic Mutts' tangled web of lies. With a wag of her tail and a bark of triumph, she exposed the culprits and restored peace to the Mardi Gras streets once more.

As the sun set on another unforgettable Mardi Gras, Mrs. Bigglesworth trotted off into the night, her nose already twitching in anticipation of her next adventure. For in the world of the Mystic Mutts of Revelry, where drama reigns supreme, there's never a dull moment for a curious canine on the prowl.
