GAZETTE LOOKS BEYOND AG REBUFF
LEMURSWORTH—The Gazette is weighing its options after Attorney General Rollie Ripkin said today he would not compel Crittersback officials to investigate the appearance last year of a cotton candy stick in the trash at Crittersback Fair.
In a brief statement, Ripkin said the Gazette’s February 1 request for his office’s involvement “lacks sufficient grounds and is summarily denied.”
Also unclear is the identity of the attractive young woman Ripkin was spotted with emerging from the Hotel Lemursworth early Saturday morning. Mrs. Ripkin is believed ill, and convalescing at the couple’s Port Rigatoni vacation home.
