That is the best news! There is not a better , more honest, trustworthy man to be runninfairhope's Police Department. Now Tim Kant can run the city without worry of a chief that will be fighting him on everything. Hopefully it will be permanent soon! Congradulations Joseph Pettis, you deserve it!

in my 7 yrs of living in unfairhopeless, one thing is for sure. the people who have to follow the laws and ordinances are the ones who move to unfairhopeless. so status quo. chief pettis grew up there so he fits right in with mayor kant. people who aren't from there you better wake up and see what is going on. drunk drivers from unfairhopeless drive around daily without insurance or drives license and that is acceptable. domestic violence, look the other way. but when i put up a no trespass sign facing frank kostyra and anita mcvay barnehill kostyras property i was arrested by the HONORABLE magistrate sandra kelly. i was found not guilty. health dept. visited my home b/c someone called and said i had a person living in my garden shed. really? police were called b/c i had more than 2 yard sales in one year. police were called b/c i had a piece of metal leaning up against my fence in the back so i could have some privacy, police were at my house one weekend when i wasn't even home, becky it was you and some old man and you know i don't care if you go to my house. there were so many of you who were kind and empathetic. a police report was made by frank kostyra and pictures were attached of me taking a trunk load of bricks out and throwing them on my driveway and he said"i didn't see her steal the bricks but i am pretty sure she did take them from across the street, 7 bricks." and it goes on and on. yet no one stopped them, in fact it seemed that sandra kelly would not refuse to sign any complaint that they made and when i had video of him harassing me she refused to accept charges.
NOTE to readers, it was robert wilters who granted FAA (frank kostyra and anita mcvay barnhill kostyra) 60 thousand dollars in a default judgement while my attorney was in afganistan. harry wilters is his father who i have also been in front of. can you believe that the elderly man that trent scott assaulted only received 50 thousand dollars and yet robert wilters granted frank kostyra and anita mcvay 60 thousand dollars? people wake up. stand up for what is right not what is right for some of the people. and before you hire an attorey and pay him make sure he is not in he service, he can take your money and leave with it. if you know of mary murchison she is an attorney and mediator in foley and she said when frank kostyra pointed a gun at me and then loaded it and point it at me again saying he was going to make my whole family disappear, she actually said to my disbelief that "it didn't really hurt you though did it?" Judge kitrell from mobile sat in on the gun trial and he said "if she cussed me that way i might want to point a gun at her too" believe it, it's in the transcripts. i have more on that trial later. i hope the new city council members do not have rose colored glasses. chief pettis it is your time to shine. hold people accountable for misuse of the 911 calls, making false police reports, abusing their position on the police dept. time for weeding.

This is a post about the new police chief. This isn't a post about your personal problems with your neighbors or others in town.

Good luck to Petties and may he have better success than Press.

Wow... sounds like Mrs. Windham needs to let people know about her true behavior. Besides, I am not from here and have never had a negative run in with the fine officers who serve our community; maybe because I have never done anything to have such an interaction. If people don't like Fairhope, a U-Haul onlt cost about $100 a day!
