The City of Jasper must hold its investigative meeting with hired attorney firm in the Sunshine. Here is the quote out of the Government in the Sunshine Manual.

8.        Investigative meetings

The sunshine law is applicable to investigative inquiries of public boards or commissions. The fact that a meeting concerns alleged violations of laws or regulations does not remove it from the scope of the law. ago 74-84; and Canney v. Board of Public Instruction of Alachua County, 278 so. 2d 260 (Fla. 1973).

The event has been characterized as an investigative meeting. Allen, Norton and Blue, the attorneys hired to do the investigation, must do it in the Sunshine, that is in an open meeting so that all citizens will have the right to view and comment on the facts and data presented.

To Bad for Jasper. Nothing can be swept under the rug or overlooked. All of the dirty laundry will be hung out to dry.


The RHATT Watch

Day 8

Red-face Rhatt

Today is Thursday, May 3rd, Day 8 of the Rhatt Watch.  In the State of Florida, if someone believes that an official has taken, or is taking, part in an activity which is inappropriate, that person can make a complaint to the Commission on Ethics, pursuant to Section 112.324 of the Florida Statutes.  It is the responsibility of the Commission to conduct an investigation into the complaint and based upon the results take such action as it deems appropriate.  This is precisely what has been happening in White Springs.  Red-face Ratt, his Lapdog and other flunkies are under investigation by the Commission on Ethics.  Red-face Ratt has elected to hide this investigation and not request a public hearing.  If you have lived in or near White Springs, you know that complaints related to pedophilia, drugs, threats, bribes and a whole assortment of other types of corruption are undoubtedly true.  Hopefully, the Commission will halt these violations of the public trust before they can take hold throughout all of Hamilton County.

Has anyone seen Red-face Ratt, his Lapdog and other flunkies lately?  If you have any insights, please let the authorities and us know.  It seems like a few of the drug suppliers in and around White Springs have gotten a little nervous lately.  And, they should be nervous.  Recall, the Red-face Ratt is toxic, very toxic.  He’ll throw anybody, including his own family, under the bus to save his own neck.  Time is running out.  If you have been involved in pedophilia, drugs, bribes and corruption with the Red-face Ratt in the last twenty years, and if you don’t want to spend the next decade, or longer, in prison, you need to get to the State Attorney first.  Also, it’s highly likely Red-face Ratt is wearing a wire now.


When will the Commission on Ethics take action?  When will the Florida Bar take a look at Red-face Ratt’s activities?  When will Florida’s local, regional and State law enforcement undertake thorough investigations of Red-face Ratt, his Lapdog and other flunkies?  Or will Red-face Ratt and his Lapdog resign first?  When will the State Attorney indict Red-face Ratt? For how long could Red-face Ratt go away?  And who will Red- face Ratt bring down with him?


It’s Day 8 and Red-face Ratt hasn’t resigned yet.  The Rhatt Watch continues!


The RHATT Watch Day 7

Today is Wednesday, May 2nd, Day 7 of the Rhatt Watch.  A few years back, White Springs found itself in a position of being out of compliance with the State Fire Marshall’s office.  This means no fire department and fire insurance rates would rise.  After a few fixes to resolve immediate concerns and a return to compliance, White Springs embarked upon  a program to permanently address the Fire Department.  Funding for a new fire station was obtained and the facility built.  The fire chief and volunteer firefighters were recruited and trained.  The immensely respected chief and others helped obtain new vehicles and a large assortment of expensive equipment (far beyond the resources of White Springs).  And then, the Red-face Ratt, with the assistance of his lapdog and other Council flunkies destroyed the White Springs Fire Department.  All of the donated equipment has been repossessed by the Department of Forestry.  And fire insurance rates are expected to rise.


In the meantime Red-face Ratt, his lapdog and other flunkies continue to remain in hiding.  It must be embarrassing for his family.  Remember the Red face Ratt is toxic, very toxic!  Sooner or later, he’s likely to be indicted.  When that happens, he’s likely to want to stay out of prison.  And to do that, he’s likely to flip on anybody and everybody.  You know how it works.  If you have been involved in pedophilia, drugs, bribes and corruption with the Red-face Ratt in the last twenty years, the first one to the prosecutor gets the deal.  The last one gets prison.  Better, far better to be first!!  By the way, if you are still working with the Red-face Ratt, watch out.  He’s probably wearing a wire now, or will be, very soon.


How long will it take before other Agencies back away from White Springs?  It’s likely to happen?  Would you want to deal with someone you absolutely cannot trust?  Someone who is trying to save his hide at the expense of yours?  When will the Red-face Ratt, his Lapdog and other flunkies resign?   Will Red-face Ratt wait to be indicted?  Will Red-face Ratt wait for someone to slap on the handcuffs.


The Rhatt Watch Day 6

The RHATT Watch

Day 6




Today is Tuesday, May 1st , Day 6 of the Rhatt Watch.  Red-face Ratt’s terror streak extends far beyond the boundaries of the town of White Springs.  Now, Red-face Ratt is bringing his incompetence to the residents of the City of Jasper.  In fact, former attorney for White Springs resigned rather than to continue legal services to the Red-face Ratt, who didn’t know the law and didn’t care about applying the law correctly or even taking actions which were legal.  Unfortunately, with the support of several of his cronies, Red face Ratt was retained by the City of Jasper and currently is subverting the operation of the Jasper City Council.  How much harm are the residents of Jasper willing to endure?   How much of their precious assets do they want squandered.   With Red-face Ratt there could be no end to the damage the City of Jasper will experience.


Does the City of Jasper really want the Red-face Ratt bringing his standards for pedophilia, drug use and corruption to their community?  It’s all part of Red-face Ratt’s plan to take over all of Hamilton County’s governmental functions.  Better watch out Jennings and Hamilton County,.  Red-face Ratt has his eyes set on taking over your operations.


When will the residents of the City of Jasper demand action to protect their community?  Hol long will the City of Jasper, City Council refuse to take action to end the embarrassment and harm being done to their community?   Will the City of Jasper relinquish its integrity to the Red-face Ratt?  Or, will some aggrieved individual put forth information requiring an ethics investigation, as has been undertaken in White Springs?  Is it possible that Red-face Ratt and his cronies will resign?  Rumor has it that the news crew which has visited the area, also associated with 60 Minutes is exploring a segment about the City of Jasper and its relationship with Red-face Ratt.  What a way to get on television.  Wouldn’t that be nice for Red-face Ratt and the City of Jasper?


Remember it’s Day 6 and Red-face Ratt hasn’t resigned yet.  The Rhatt Watch continues.
