Trouble in Hooterville a.k.a. Ravena … Again … STILL!

While the public scandal of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center continues to be ignored by the mayor, Mr William “Mouse” Misuraca and his Band of Merry Dithering Dildos, William “Bill” Bailey, Joel Coye, Keith Mahler and former mummy-mayor’s girl, Nancy Warner, and while the Ravena village council, the same Mayor “Mouse” and his Merry Band of Dithering Dildos named above, are passing local laws like Local Law 2 of 2015, requiring all residents in so-called flood plains to obtain flood insurance at the property owner’s expense, citing federal mandates as their way out but neglecting to mention that the federal FEMA program is such an incompetent gory hole that, as with Obamacare and education, the federal government is pushing more and more on the taxpayers of this country and then, when there is a natural disaster, you make a claim, your insurance goes up, and the federal government subsidizes or bails out the insurance and banking institutions. Do you ever get the feeling that the cards are stacked against you? Considering the condition of Ravena’s sewer system and water mains, and the flooding of lawns and village homes, maybe the brainiacs on the Village board should require ALL village property owners to buy flood insurance!

Still hemorrhaging more than $6000 of taxpayer money every month…

deadhorseWell, while the Blond-Bimbo of the scandalous money-pit that’s hemorrhaging more than $6,000 of taxpayer dollars every month, according to the Ravena village council’s own estimates, they are still kissing Cathy Deluca’s broad bottom and still giving her free rein in wasting taxpayer money. Her most recent scam was sending out hundreds of flyers inviting locals to join the leech field they call a health club, but when a Ravena village council asked Deluca at a recent public meeting how many new members the irresponsible promotional campaign actually yielded Deluca claimed she ‘wasn’t sure. Maybe 20 or so’, according to Cathy. Well, that’s a far cry from the some 300-500 that are needed to even make the Ravena Health and Fitness Center come close to breaking even! But Mayor Mouse and Nitwit Nancy and the Merry Band of Dithering Dildos continue to allow Deluca to have her playpen. Why is that, Ravena?

Listen, Cathy: The horse is dead. Stop trying to find another stick to beat it; it’s not going to work (AGAIN!)

Cathy Deluca has no answers but can come up with a lie or two almost immediately…

But while Cathy Deluca has no answers but can come up with a lie or two almost immediately (practice makes perfect, it would seem), and she can’t seem to get things moving in the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, she’s got plenty of advice (and of course, that advice includes her as one of its principal beneficiaries). She’s now touting another “For the kids” line of bullshit, this time it’s nutrition. When will it ever end? Well, considering the money-pit Ravena Health and Fitness Center is losing money to the tune of $6,000+ every month, that comes out to be about $100 grand a year; that can buy a hell of a lot of nutrition and nutrition programs but instead the only nutrition program it seems to be providing for is Cathy Deluca’s and tubby-hubby Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca’s.

But there’s More Trouble A’brewin’ in Hooterville…

And this time it’s the Ravena Planning Board against the Ravena village council;trouble brewing a mutiny, a revolution seems to be about to happen.

According to a very reliable source who will remain anonymous for now but who we’ll call JC (Yes, dear readers, those are the initials of Joel Coye), the Ravena village council has created another problem for itself by overstepping its authorities and messing with the Ravena Planning Board. What’s worse still is that according to our source, the Ravena village council has again violated the law and again has shot itself in the foot.

According to a letter signed by Mayor “Mouse” and his Merry Band of Dithering Dildos, Yes! all five of them (William Misuraca, William “Bill” Bailey, Keith Mahler, Jr., Nancy Warner, and Joel Coye), they are demanding that a certain member of the Ravena Planning Board resign effective immediately, stating:

“It has come to our attention that you made a number of inappropriate and unprofessional comments at the Village Planning Board Meeting held on December 8, 2014. We as a Board strive to maintain the highest level of professionalism and respect in the conduct of all Village officers and employees. We have received numerous complaints as to the statements made by you at the public meeting and in front of your colleagues.

As such, we, the Village Board of Trustees, jointly request that you resign immediately from the Village of Ravena Planning Board.”

The problem is this: At least two sitting members of the board, one being the chairman of the board himself, report not to have any knowledge of any such “inappropriate and unprofessional comments” having been made by the victim. That leaves Joel Coye and Claire Roberts, Nancy Warner’s two moles on the Ravena Planning Board, who concocted the lies.

Warner, Coye, Roberts

Warner, Coye, Roberts

Furthermore, the minutes of the very meeting to which Mayor “Mouse” Misuraca and his Merry Band of Dithering Dildos are referring makes no mention of any problem. Given the fact that the mayor and the board were not present at that meeting, it seems that the only one who could have disseminated such a lie would be Village trustee Joel Coye, who happens to be the Village board liaison to the Planning Board, and Nancy Warner’s breast-feeding flea, Claire Roberts.

The victim JC naturally refused to be railroaded by that bunch of sockpuppets and so, at the next meeting, madam Nancy Warner shows up with Joel Coye and the report is, when the victim JC took his seat next to Claire Roberts “you could hear a pin drop in the room.” Wonder Why?

 Well it may be that Nancy Warner and her minions, including Mlayor “Mouse” and his Band of Dithering Dildos, are making an attempt to remove the dems from the Village Planning Board, expecially those who have been on it for years and know what’s going on. Why sideline members of the Planning Board when you should be working closely together for the good of the community? Personal ambition, greed, vanity, a thirst for power may be at the center of it all. Why work with people who don’t agree with you when you can try to make them disappear and put your friends in their place, and those friends will do whatever you ask. Sounds like a plan, doesn’t it? Piss off the chairman of the Planning Board by ignoring him and maybe he’ll lose his cool and you can get him to resign, too. Then, when space is vacant, Nancy’s little petunia Alicia Nieves, an alternate, can move in.

The republican village council would love to load the Planning Board with cronies, just like the RCS CSD board of education is loaded exclusively with teachers…

What? You don’t believe this could happen? Well consider this: Cathy Deluca is a close friend of Nancy Warner, and Warner covers Deluca’s back whenever the going gets rough. Why do you think Deluca’s still there when anyone else would have been canned ages ago. Now consider Alicia Nieves, who is a friend of Nancy Warner but otherwise a nobody, and who is a regular with Warner at Deluca’s moneypit playpen. They “work out’ together. The republican village council would love to load the Planning Board with cronies, just like the RCS CSD board of education is loaded exclusively with teachers, spouses of teachers, close relatives of teachers, “owned and operated by the New York State United Teachers, the union,” and it’s not in your interest. Same thing can happen to the Village Planning Board; it will become just an arm of the insiders club and will lose it’s autonomy, it’ll become a puppet board. Claire Roberts (kept Bruce Roberts’ name after the divorce) works in the Halfway House for Mayor “Mouse” and Claire Roberts nominated the Bill Misuraca, now Mayor “Mouse”, republican caucus to get him on the ballot to run for mayor. As New Baltimore town supervisor Nick Dellisanti likes to point out when stepping over loyal supporters to appoint a republican to town positions, “Republicans appoint republicans (so screw the rest of you)!” That’s apparently how Claire Roberts got her appointment to the planning board — she attempted to get elected to public office but lost every time so we guess the only way she could get a position is by special favors and getting an appointment. Yeah, it’s a cozy rat’s nest, isn’t it?

Warner, Roberts & Coye Prepping for a Board Meeting

Warner, Roberts & Coye Prepping for a Board Meeting

The problems allegedly all started about 10 months ago, when Claire Roberts was appointed to the Planning Board. Roberts is a frustrated politician who has attempted to run for elected office but has failed. As a friend of Nancy Warner, and a denizen with Planning Board member Alicia Nieves, also a friend of Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca, however, she apparently wants to throw her weight around (no pun intended). That’s why Nancy Warner has to show up (word is she’s got her eye on the mayor’s office but doesn’t the bartender-turned-mayor know any of this? You can soon read what happens in the Town of New Baltimore when a town employee announces his plans to run against one of his bosses.)

Regretful Rat

Regretful Rat

A new study from the University of Minnesota shows that even rats have the ability to experience regret. Regret is a cognitive behavior once thought to be unique to humans — but absent in the Warner and Deluca subspecies —, but neuroscientists A. David Redish, Ph.D and Adam Steiner explained to the journal Science Daily that this isn’t actually the case:

“Regret is the recognition that you made a mistake, that if you had done something else, you would have been better off,” said Redish. “The difficult part of this study was separating regret from disappointment, which is when things aren’t as good as you would have hoped. The key to distinguishing between the two was letting the rats choose what to do.”

(You can read the Redish & Steiner article, “I shouldn’t have eaten there: Rats show behavior of ‘regret’ in choosing the wrong ‘restaurant'” at Science Daily.)

Well, it looks like Nancy Warner, Joel Coye, and Claire Roberts don’t have the character or the integrity to regret what they’ve started, but they sure can look forward to some heavy-duty disappointment when it blows up in their faces. And Ravena mayor Bill “Mouse” Misuraca will come out smelling like a rat, too.

But Why? is Joel Coye, a republican, contacting Tom Dolan, a sitting member of the Coeymans town board and allegedly a democrap, asking him to read this blog? That’s a question Joel Coye should be able to answer but will he? Maybe Nancy Warner can ask Joel Why? he’s going to Tom Dolan. Or maybe mayor “Mouse” Misuraca or girlfriend Claire Roberts? We’d like to know.  Wouldn’t YOU?


There should be no question in anyone’s mind that the Ravena Village Board clearly overstepped their authority when they interfered with the Planning Board’s administration. In fact, the Ravena Village Board displayed extraordinary disrespect to the chairperson of the Planning Board, Mr Al Visconti, by not even having the courtesy to consult with him. Normally, any problems on the Planning Board or in any department, in fact, are initially handled by the particular committee or by the department. Since when does the Village board disregard this protocol and act on their own. If there’s a resignation to be demanded, the Planning Board chairperson with the advice and consultation of the other board members make that demand, and inform the Village board of their action. Only then should the Village board get involved and support the Planning Board’s decision regarding one of its members. In fact, a public hearing should have been held in this matter as per the law! Misuraca and his band of sockpuppets not only committed a serious breach of the Village Code of Ethics but they violated JC‘s rights as well as current procedural law!


This looks like a replay of the backstabbing game they played when they railroaded village justice Phil Crandall into resignation. You see, former judge Crandall’s so-called colleague on the bench, the villain Hal Warner, Nancy Warner’s husband, threw Crandall to the wolves. Our speculation is this: Nancy Warner is the village board member who oversees the operations of the Village Justice Court. Yes, you’re reading correctly. Nancy Warner oversees her husband’s court; Crandall was an outsider and may have known too much so he had to go. So, to keep things nice and cozy, Nancy may have orchestrated Crandall’s disposal with the help of her crooked judge husband. But dear readers, you couldn’t all have been in the dark about what’s going on in your Village hall, could you?

We got your number, Nancy Warner

We got your number, Nancy Warner

The Ravena Viillage Planning Board, with the exception of Claire Roberts, is a pretty honest group of people, many of whom — including the victim, JC — have served the village for more than 10 years. Al Visconti, the chairman of the Ravena Village Planning Board, is a man who plays by the rules, and Rosie Rarick is completely upright and straightforward. It seems that the “republicans”, Nancy Warner and Joel Coye, and Claire Roberts, a dear friend of Nancy Warner, are the actual conspirators.

Is there a party-political motivation to all of this? Al Visconti is a democrat as are the rest of the members. Only Claire Roberts is a republican. Joel Coye, village board liaison to the Planning Board is, of course, a club member and a republican. But truth be told, the Ravena village board doesn’t have the honesty or integrity to be able to play the party loyalty card, they’re RINOs (Republicans in name only), and would change parties at the drop of a hat if it would benefit them. They have no real party mission or an understanding of what the party represents. They asked and Barbara Cumm, the local Republican committee chairwoman, granted them the endorsement.

It’s more than that and here’s what we think: Some time ago, when TCI was campaigning to get approval to put it’s disposal plant in behind the Pieter B. Coeymans Elementary School, in the territory of Ravena, the victim JC suggested that the Village do a complete study of the environmental and health impact of having the TCI installation in the village of Ravena. Obviously, if such a study were to have been done it would have raised some very significant questions and concerns. As a result, TCI jumped across the creek and set up housekeeping not in Ravena but in Coeymans. Well, this really burned some people in Village Hall because now they couldn’t claim to have won a business for Ravena — even at the risk of poisoning our environment and kids as well — and to have lost TCI to Coeymans must have killed them. So a vendetta was sworn. Someone had to pay for putting the interest of residents before those of the Village board club!

Ravena doesn’t mind making laws, it just has a problem obeying laws. We all know of the Village of Ravena’s many violations of the Public Officer’s Law and the Freedom of Information Laws. We’ve all read about the numerous Notices of Claim against the Village of Ravena for violation of civil and constitutionally protected rights of residents and citizens. But it seems like a chronic problem that the Ravena village board simply doesn’t like playing by rules and prefers backstabbing to compromise. Obey the laws on the books? No way!

“We as a Board strive to maintain the highest level of professionalism and respect…” (sounds so-o-o Nancy Warner, doesn’t it?)

steaming bullshit

A Pile of Steaming Bullshit

That’s why it seems like such a pile of bullshit when we read in the Ravena village board’s letter dated December 30, 2014, in which they demand the resignation of the victim JC, and they write, ” We as a Board strive to maintain the highest level of professionalism and respect in the conduct of all Village officers and employees.” Only Nancy Warner could have conjured up a fiction, a lie, a fantasy of that magnitude!

It’s HOT! So stay tuned…

Since we are informed lawyers are getting involved in this most recent scandal created by the amateurs on the Ravena Village Board, we cannot publish everything yet but as soon as we get the go-ahead from the party going after the Village of Ravena, we’ll be the first to publish it for your information. Stay tuned!

New Baltimore Taxpayers Sucked In Again by Teachers-Union-Owned-and-Operated RCS Board of Education

The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District and its Board of Education manipulated the timing and the vote to again shortchange RCS taxpayers and deprive them of their votes when, on Tuesday, January 13, 2015, they pushed the vote on two proposals totaling and additional $30 million in tax burden on an already faltering tax base. So, Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Social Services Recipients and Friends of New York State United Teachers, the Teachers-Union-Owned-and-Operated Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District approved an additional $30 Million dollars in indirect tax assessment they’re calling “Capital Improvement” for the RCS Schools. Let’s watch and see who gets the contracts for the so-called “capital improvements.”

New Baltimore Taxpayers Sucked In Again

taxation without representation

May be business as usual in Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk but New Baltimore doesn’t have to put up with it! Or do we?

We have just one question: When will the Town of New Baltimore smarten up and leave the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District, a failing group of schools with a corrupt board of education under a corrupt superintendent and move on to join the Greene County success story? When will the Town of New Baltimore town board finally get its act together and take the necessary steps to ensure that New Baltimore taxpayers are not playing the fool for a failing district that knows no bounds when it comes to spending and taxation. The RCS district is losing tax base a mile-a-minute and attracting non-taxpaying population. More properties are either going up for sale, being abandoned, or vacant in the case of commercial properties with more of the tax burden falling on Guess Who?!?!

Ravena has enough money to allow Cathy Deluca’s unlawful and failing Ravena Health and Fitness Center to continue losing taxpayer dollars to the tune of more than $6000 a month, and the town of Coeymans can give half the town away in concessions to carpetbagger business with nothing in return. But can New Baltimore continue to pay for Raven-Coeyman’s debauchery and free-wheeling spending addictions? We say NO!

Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Resident Speaks Up: the RCS BoE can’t do math!

RCS CSD parent and local property owner and taxpayer Mr Laszlo Polyak takes a stand on the RCS board of education’s crazy proposals to tax the RCS community another $30 million for “capital improvements.”

It doesn’t matter to the RCS board of education, which is composed almost entirely of teachers and relatives of teachers and no representation from the rest of the community, that their insanity is beyond belief! Another $30 MILLION in addition to the more than $42 MILLION we’ve already provided for their inflated egos and salaries. How much more, we have to ask?

Rules the RCS CSD Board of Education

Rules the RCS CSD Board of Education

A Resident, Parent, Propety Owner, Taxpayer Speaks Out!

Mr Laszlo Polyak of Ravena writes:

The RCS CSD board of education has concocted two capital improvement roposals for almost 30 million dollars for the RCS schools, and are asking us to vote to approve them!

I’m not going to advise you to vote Yes or NO! on this proposal nor will I use adjectives or adverbs about the people putting this proposal together. But I will tell you why I will vote NO!

And it has nothing to do with the fact that I used to be an auditor for the State Education Department. To keep this in perspective, there is another school district in New York State that I will point out to you. It is comparable in size to ours, however, it is 9th, NINTH in the country . . . not the state but the entire country! It is forced to compete with very famous elite private schools that cost between $30,000 and $40,000 per year tuition in those private schools. The school district is located in Westchester County, it is the Blind Brook school district. Right across the street is Greenwich, Connecticut. There are no high school drop outs, last year 108 students graduated, and 108 students went to colleges and universities (not community colleges).   In the last ten years this school district has doubled in size. As you can see, it is a small village that is growing. And yet its school budget is $42 million, about the same as ours.   Their taxes have nothing to do with the quality of education. It is what residents demand of their local teachers and school board. They want their kids to be part of innovation and 21st – century quality thinking. And they own their own school buses too. The Village of Blind Brook was formed in 1989 too.

Now my reason, the big picture here . . . you are proposing this vote in the middle of January instead of May. So what this is telling me is that the school administrators and the board are ignoring — or trying to eliminate — a large chunk of our population – the snow birds, who volunteer in our community for a variety of things to assist our students to be the best they can be. That is not right by itself – nobody should be left out of the loop, especially the property owners.

When I started to do the math for what the proposals are for the things we “need”, I came up with $1.3 million that is going to affect me by 25 cents per $100,000. Then you have approximately $29 million and that’s going to affect by $1.04 per 100,000, for a combined total of $1.29. However, $29 million is about 25 times 1.3 million. So I’m saying this should be about $6.25 difference between the two proposals for the cost to me as a representative taxpayer in the RCS CSD. Who did the math for the RCS board of education? Elmer Fudd?

But forget that for a minute . . . then I thought this is going to be $30 million taken out of our community – gone forever. So that means I won’t have the $1 for when the young students knock on my door for cheerleaders or band or a field trip. Then I won’t have in my pocket the 25 cents for when the PTA/PTO kids have their bake sales, and I won’t be able to buy a cup cake, cookie or brownie.

At what point do we not realize this is not the time for such a major capital improvement. I’m a parent with a child in the RCS CSD system. I love football, I want the best safest school buses, I want our schools be structurally sound, but when I begin to read some of the double – talk stuff here, I ask myself about the alternatives. I ask about the solar panels, where are they? I ask about the cement plant across the street from the Junior High and High Schools. Here is 25st century thinking . . . why can’t we get the excess heat from those kilns piped underground to heat the schools buildings? They (cement plant) get the tax write-off and we would save millions in heating. Yeah! The cement plant gets the tax advantage and we get to carry the slack for them. For almost 15 years I have seen a school bus with a sign “School Bus Drivers needed – we will train you”. And now our mechanics are driving. [Does OSHA know about what’s going on in the RCS CSD bus garage? Or the unions?] And we need money for the bus garage, for new buses. At some time we need to stop and think why are we buying new buses if we don’t have the drivers to drive them? We may need to sub – contract parts of these bus routes out. Then I look at the elementary schools and the windows – but the two wings on both these schools are only 20 – years old, why do they have 50 – year old windows? Then, when I look up who was on the board 20 years ago, the DeLuca name pops up. Yup! Old Jerry Deluca was RCS CSD board of education president back then. No name calling, no twisting, just DeLuca names . Then I look at the current president, Mr. Latter. He is supposed to be a finance employee for Sabic, his day job? And he let these numbers out? And what about the other financial geniuses and teachers on the RCS CSD board of education? And what about the superintendent? Why don’t these numbers make sense??? Can’t any of these people do simple math?

The RCS Chalkboard: The Board of Education’s Documentation of Stupidity

When we posted our article It only gets worse: 2015 will be more expensive, more dangerous, and more frustrating … (December 22, 2014), we had no idea how prophetic it was going to be. But then we received the January 2015 RCS Chalkboard and it became crystal clear how bad it can really get. It’s getting really, really bad!

This is YOU! You've been programmed and are being re-programmed!

This is YOU!
You’ve been programmed, and are being re-programmed! 

First of all, we’ve warned in the past of the misplaced loyalties and the disconnection of the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk board of education from the real people, the real taxpayers, the real needs, the real issues in this community. Back when a small fraction of local voters put the current board of education in office, we correctly noted that the new board was made up of a bunch of insiders, special-interest elitists, most of whom are married to or are close relatives of Guess what? Yes! Teachers.

RCS BOARD OF EDUCATION WANTS ANOTHER $30 MILLION!!!

RCS has it to burn!and the RCS board of education burns it "responsibly" (as long as you're paying).
RCS has it to burn!
and the RCS board of education burns it “responsibly” (as long as you’re paying).

Monkey-mayor “Moose” Misuraca doesn’t seem to have the Moose-Nalls to make any changes in favor of Ravena residents and taxpayers…

Moose balls? More like mouse balls!

Moose balls? More like mouse balls!

But back then we had mummy mayor John T. Bruno in office with Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca unlawfully or at best misdirecting taxpayer money right and left — now we have monkey-mayor Bill “Moose” Misuraca and Nancy Warner supported by four dildos — Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca still have their hands in your pocket but monkey-mayor “Moose” Misuraca doesn’t seem to have the moose-balls to make any changes in favor of Ravena residents and taxpayers, he hasn’t made any changes but has simply moved in with Warner and Deluca — and Yes! When the current RCS board of education was voted in, there was some serious voting and poll irregularities as usual — but no one seemed to care much, as usual you all had your heads in the sand and your thumbs up your butts —, and back then we still were dealing with the likes of Gerald “Dirty-Hands” Jerry Deluca and Gregory “Deluca’s Dumplin'” Darlington at the Coeymans police department with their bunch of mobsters. But then Deluca and Darlington cashed in their chips and made off with their pockets full of your tax money while the town of Coeymans board sat stupidly telling you they were all of a sudden short of money. Why was that, we wonder? (For the answers just read past articles in this blog!) But that was then….AND NOTHING’S CHANGED!!!!!

It’s Got to be a Joke!

If you don’t have a copy of the January 2015 RCS Chalkboard you really need to get a copy and see for yourself.

First of all, you will read that the RCS Chalkboard announces that the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District is “Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders Today.” That’s a very frightening thought when you actually read the rag. Here’s why:

The so-called RCS mission statement (in the left margin of the title page) reads: “The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District strives to be an exemplary learning community whose graduates are well-prepared to excel in a complex, interconnected and changing world.” Nice bit of fiction there and maybe Stephen King can use it in one of his crazy horror novels but those of us living here and watching, listening to, and talking to the products of that school district know better. The real mission statement should read: “Raping and pillaging the taxpayers of the RCS community and feeding them lies and deception while irresponsibly spending, spending, spending, and dumbing down the curriculum to artificially increase graduation rates. Your tax dollars working for the New York State United Teachers union and our egos!”

Here you have an eight-member board under the chairmanship of James Latter who is known to be employed by a Saudi Arabian enemy of the environment, to have unethical connections with various questionable organizations, and who is known to have violated the law and student and family confidentiality. But district voters re-elected him! We then have the sockpuppet Patrick Brown, a hippy attorney, wife…excuse us, husband of Matt Miller…Oops! We meant husband of Mary Partridge-Brown, the personal lap dancer to RCS teachers union representative, Matthew J. “Matt-the-Mutt” Miller, who is known to have been involved with some very shady activities in the past, including double-dipping and making off with school district money to the tune of more than $10,000 a year for several years, in addition to a reduced teaching load to allow him to do union business on RCS time, while receiving a full teacher salary plus complete benefits and incentives. Why is he still there? Your school board at work — in their own interests. We then have Alice Whalen, a former teacher, who has already announced during her term on the RCS board of education that she (Whalen) will be moving out of the RCS area to Guilderland…while she’s still spending RCS school district money and taking her personal stash with her to Guilderland!!! Nice going RCS!

Howard “Bray” Engel, a teacher married to a teacher, and who teaches outside of the district. Need we say more about Engel?

William “Bill”  McFerret…Sorry, that’s defaming the furry little animal that’s a member of the weasel family…McFerran is no less a weasel, though. He’s got an interesting history, too, if anyone has followed the developments over the past 2-3 years in the local RCS athletic organizations’ history. Not very savory.

The remaining three useless widgets, Tina Furst-Hotaling, Michael Jones, and Jason Hyslop have their issues but we’ve made our point.

As for Mr Alan R. McCartney, who came to the district with much experience and even more baggage, he’s gotten comfortable and cozy, knowing how to change his colors as the board composition changes. After all, he doesn’t want to jeopardize his enormous take-home by rocking the boat. There’s money to be had and he’s collecting all he can while making nice-nice with his keepers.

We want to mention also that the RCS Chalkboard has two editors, Robert Hanlon and Sabre Sarnataro. Why is that important, you might ask?

shooting-yourself-in-the-footWell, we just barely emerged from a national economic depression. The job market and the econony have not yet even approached recovery. The infrastructures of the communities (Ravena, Coeymans, Selkirk, parts of New Baltimore) are falling apart and in shambles. Since the last census the town of Coeymans has lost about one-third of its population. Businesses, and jobs, are practically non-exist ant in the district.

One of the first things this present RCS board of education did was to take its business — rather the RCS school district’s business — behind closed doors, effectively eliminating the public — that is, the taxpaying community, YOU — from their back-room operations. The number of empty properties, distressed properties, properties slated for demolition, and the number of “For Sale” signs popping up all over the district is very, very bad news for an already stressed out region. We’re told we have to tighten our belts (Nancy Warner, member of the Ravena village council to the town of Coeymans board) while the mayor of Ravena and his brainless sockpuppets allow  the Ravena Health and Fitness Center to hemorrhage more than $6,000 a month of taxpayer dollars while paying its incompetent “director”, Cathy Deluca, more than $30,000 a year plus full benefits to “direct” the village into bankruptcy under current mayor William “Moose” Misuraca, and the town of Coeymans is in an uproar over budget shortfalls and where to find the money to cover them. But the RCS board of education is out there upgrading the RCS high-school football field — but if you’re a graduate of RCS schools over the past 20 years, you probably have nothing but oatmeal for brains, and you’ll swallow every word of the bullshit that appears in the RCS Chalkboard justifying that expenditure while calling it “responsible” spending. Naturally, that bit of propaganda bullshit is on the back page of the RCS Chalkboard.

The front page of the RCS chalkboard is worthy of Stephen King (who may well have written it, except for the mistakes). The front page is dedicated to a plan to “Help RCS Plan for Tomorrow.” How does the present irresponsible RCS BoE want you to do that? Simple: They want you to vote in support of an additional $50 MILLION WORTH OF SUGGESTED NEEDS! Well, the good news is that on the last page of the confusing and double-talking explanation that takes up no less than 8 full pages, they are asking for only about $30,000,000 (that’s thirty million dollars) in addition to the usual budget of more than $40,000,000 (that’s forty million dollars). To give you an idea of how much $40,000,000 is to run the schools under the present administration, that $40 million is more money than the combined budgets of the towns of Coeymans and New Baltimore, the village of Ravena, and the district of Selkirk combined. Go figure! And now they want RCS taxpayers to cough up another $30,000,000 for a capital project while they continue spending to “upgrade” sports facilities, while they consider cutting arts and language programs because there’s no money.

But the real clincher comes when all is said and done, and you will recall that we have an 8-member board, an interim superintendent and two — Yes! Two! — editors putting together, checking the content, and finally approving the expenditure of the RCS Chalkboard, which is allegedly intended to provide RCS Central School District residents and taxpayers with true, accurate, and timely information on what’s going on in the district, but on page one, the title page, of the RCS Chalkboard, in a textbox highlighted for emphasis, we read:

Please be sure to vote on Tuesday, January 13, 2015, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., RCS High School
√ Proposition #1: $28.79 million Projected Tax Impact by 2020: + $12.42 per year or 1.04 per month[+ 0.62%] on a $100,00 RCS home

√ Proposition #1: $1.3 million Projected Tax Impact by 2020: + $2.98 per year or 25¢ per month[+ 0.15%] on a $100,00 RCS home

grim reaperNow we have a problem with the $100,00 RCS home part (are we supposed to read this to be a ONE HUNDRED DOLLAR RCS HOME?) . Either property values have really plummeted over the holiday season and we’re worse off than we expected or the RCS Central School District’s figures are way off target or the 8-member board, the superintendent and the 2 editors didn’t care enough to read what they published and correct any errors. So what does that say about the rest of the bullshit in the January 2015 RCS Chalkboard? Is it accurate? Is it truthful? Is it reliable? Is it worth the paper it’s printed on? By the way, how much does the district spend on printing the RCS Chalkboard? Do taxpayers have to pay for it even if it’s inaccurate, untruthful, unreliable, full of misleading errors? Why don’t you go to a meeting and ask Mr Latter, Mr McCartney or one of the two editors. Better yet, why not ask RCS teachers why their board’s figures and grammar reflect the quality of education your children are receiving and that’s being paid for by taxpayers — or what’s left of us — many of whom have no children!?!

VOTE NO! ON PROPOSITION NO. 1: DISTRICT-WIDE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROJECT ($28,790,00.00)

VOTE NO! ON PROPOSITION 2 (CONTINGENT): MIDDLE-HIGH SCHOOL SITE WORK IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT ($1,300,000)


ca. 1939, Germany --- Defiant Adolf Hitler --- Image by © Bettmann/CORBISCuomo’s Tax Break for Vets — Added Burden (Guilt or Taxes) for Us!

Have any of our readers followed the story on the tax exemptions for veterans proposed by Andrew Cuomo? He’s playing a Pontius Pilate game of “I’m giving you a choice but someone’s gotta die — and I’m not getting involved.” game with us. Here’s the bottom line: Either you piss down veterans’ legs and say pay taxes like the rest of us — in other words, we’re going to treat you like the federal government does — and risk being called ungrateful OR we can give veterans a tax break and take on a greater burden ourselves (even those of you who are veterans but don’t qualify for the exemption). Now that’s a genuine, authentic Cuomo-the-homo type choice; in fact, it’s the type of choice we’re constantly being asked to make by our local RCS CSD school board and local governments. Any thoughts on this sleezy proposition? (It’s the Cuomo equivalent slogan, “It’s for the vets!”, comparable to the RCS board of educations tired propaganda slogan, “It’s for the kids!”).

aghastWounded Warriors Project — Give us your money! It’s for the Vets! (RCS BoE: “Give us your money! It’s for the kids!”)

The latest embarrassing scandal that affects the duping of the American public and their sense of national guilt has recently surfaced when the crooks at Wounded Warriors got exposed. Here’s the bottom line in brief: According to Guidestar, a group that investigates charities, the Wounded Warrior Project might as well be run by the Mafia. In 2012, the WWP received an astronomical $154,958,901, with a measly $4,857,084 going out in grants to veterans’ organizations and $671,194 to individuals. That means that the group only used 3.5% of the money it received for the purpose intended.

In the meantime, the Officers, Directors and Trustees hauled in $15,415,666 million, with Employee Benefits ($2,226,457), Office Expenses ($12,451,303), Travel ($4,086,509), Promotional Items ($4,055,567) and something called Outside Services ($20,915,404) accounting for roughly 50% of what’s listed as “Overhead Expenses.”

It only gets worse: 2015 will be more expensive, more dangerous, and more frustrating in Coeymans and New Baltimore.

Unidentifiable Killer Trucks on Rt 144 and 9W. Why aren’t the traffic laws being enforced? Why are we put in harm’s way by our elected officials?

killer truck 1

Killer Trucks On the Loose!!!!
Test: Can you find, read the license plate to save your life?

School buses stopping at ever damned driveway during rush hour traffic!

Utility trucks stopped on the shoulder with no flagmen!

Dump trucks and heavy trucks, oversized loads going at a snail’s pace!

Illegible licence plates and no lights!

Now it seems the drivers of the nuisance heavy trucks are playing life and death games with other road users!

We’ve been hearing the usual mantra of “We need this business because it will create jobs!” And we’ve also witnessed the stupidity and lack of common sense, the lack of vision that is behind these idiotic mantras. Big business will feed any small town idiot official any bullshit it likes to get its way and we’ve seen that with the town of Coeymans and its kissing Carver Laraway’s and TCI‘s butts nontop. Everything from caving to the lies of new jobs and benefits to the community to enacting illegal zoning and local laws. We have it all.

And speaking of jobs, Ravena and Coeymans: Word on the street is that Aaron Flach is planning to close the front office/dry cleaning part of the local laundromat. Seems an employee has complained that it’s too cold and Flach can’t actually fire the employee for claiming that working conditions in Flach’s salt mines is substandard so Flach, instead of investing in heat, decides to close that part of the business. This poses a number of problems: (1) if Flach closes the front office, no one will be there to take care of problems and problems there are in the laundromat when they occur, (2) if Flach closes the front office/dry cleaning area where do residents bring their dry cleaning? Answer: Elsewhere, out of Ravena; after all, Ravena is no place for a business, is it?. And most importantly, (3) Jobs. How many people will be put out of a job in Ravena when Flach makes the move to save money rather than be a decent employer? Yes! There you have the Ravena “have’s”, the in-crowd mentality versus the rest of us. What? You want heat? Flach would rather close the business than spend the money on heat!

And where ya gonna go when you have a problem with Flach’s carwash — which happens more often than not — when there’s no one in the dry cleaning/laundromat office? Ravena-style customer service — a very pleasant “Screw you!”

Carver Companies and the others like it in Coeymans are playing this community for the fools we are if you look at our local elected officials. We’re getting empty promises, environmental pollution never seen before in this area, we’re hemorrhaging tax base and residents, but we’re giving our land, our homes, our heritage away like a bunch of retarded prostitutes. Why? Ask yourselves why? Ask Mr Flach and his Coeymans town board, Why? Ask Mr Misuraca and his village council, Why?

It seems everyone in town and village hall are out to stack the deck in their favor. Take Ravena. A new mayor, Bill Misuraca, moves into the Ravena mayor’s office and does nothing. His highway department (the Ravena Public Works Department) spreads tens of thousands of dollars in loose stone on several major streets only to have it pushed aside by traffic, washed away by rain, and now plowed up by the snow plows. Misuraca’s wisdom: Why put something permanent down if we’re only going to dig it up again when we repair the infrastructure. Meanwhile, Ravena is hemorraging to the tune of $6,000 a month with the Cathy Deluca fitness center, and it’s losing tax base faster than we can write about it. Record numbers of homes for sale in Ravena and Main Street is still the capital of distressed and empty property. A quarter century of financial incompetence and finally, after screwing the bottoms off of most property owners in Ravena, Ravena is forced to keep separate accounts for sewer and water! DUHHHHH!

The situation in the town of New Baltimore isn’t much different. A bunch of dildos in the highway department have no clue how to keep records or how to repair roads or drive snow plows. For example, in the summer they “patch” the potholes so loosely that after 3 or 5 cars and the hole’s back. The surfacing that does survive is torn up by the plows in winter, and then replaced in the summer. That’s called job security, we guess. Earlier this month (December 2014) after the 4 or so inches of snow fell, the New Baltimore Highway Department plows moved through the Hamlet and the National Historic District and tore up big slabs of road surface — Were the plow blades too low or was the surface that shoddy? — We believe both were true. Or they tear up the shoulder so it has to be replaced in Spring or Summer. Job security. But can they install storm drains or gutters properly to avoid damage to private property? Hell NO! Or can they keep records of where the trucks and crews are at any given time? Or what work was done when? Or the cost of a particular job? Hell NO! Yet New Baltimore residents sit on their hands and play nice-nice. Wake the hell up!

Coeymans is no better. Budget shortfalls while everyone like Dirty-hands Jerry” Deluca and his partner Gregory Darlington cash in their severance pays and desert (rumor is they had a choice, leave or get prosecuted). But they leave, the Coeymans board, hypcrites that they are, praise them for their fine service (to themselves), hand them retirement badges and hefty cash-out checks, and we’re stuck with the ghosttown! Nice going, Flach and company. Nice to know you’re on our side!

Same for New Baltimore. Amid promises of reform and renewal, a return to good government, New Baltimore has fallen flat on its face and the newly elected mob’s egos have taken over. The Ravena News Herald reports that one of their biggest accomplishments is an employee handbook that took the 8 months to create — 8 months on taxpayer dollars and time when they could have obtained the same result by simply calling another municipality, getting permission to use theirs, while making a couple of changes here and there. 8 days versus 8 months. Makes sense to us but not to the New Baltimore town board.

The town of New Baltimore can spend 8 months “creating” an employee handbook but can’t provide any records for road maintenance over the past  5-10 years. They have an employee handbook but that’s about the extent of the recordkeeping. Go ahead ask them for something. It’s as bad as Ravena: either they use some stupid excuse why they can’t give it to you or they tell you no records exist, that they’ve been shredded. We think their brains have been shredded.

There’s nothing in New Baltimore so New Baltimore doesn’t have to worry about stuff like Ravena and Coeymans. There are no more kids in New Baltimore. There are no more businesses in New Baltimore. The original families are either moving or dying out. The number of empty properties is unusually high, in fact on New Street more than half the homes are empty, either vacant or up for sale. The indifference of the town of New Baltimore to improvements in the infrastructure is appalling. Local lunatics like Joan Ross (the Cut-and-Paste Queen)  and Bob Ross (the Cryptkeeper a.k.a. Bitter Bob) spread hate and venom wherever they leave their slime tracks, and stand poised to activate what they lovingly call their “Newbaltimorons” should anyone propose community improvements like public water etc. Vicious Joan keeps herself very busy sending toxic e-mails vilifying her neighbors or engaging in misdemeanor harassment (at a deposition Joan Ross had to take the 5th on her attorney’s advice to avoid a possible misdemeanor harassment prosecution when she was confronted with a tape recording of a threatening and obscene voicemail she left on a neighbor’s machine), while old Bitter Bob courts a jail sentence or at least a misdemeanor aggravated harassment charge — as has happened in the past, he was in Catskill court on a charge of aggravated harassment — by using his motor vehicle to harass pedestrians. But that’s what New Baltimore has become, a haven for dried up harridans and crypt-keepers. Incompetence in town departments and mega-egos in town hall. A far cry from the booming progress being made just a couple of miles down the road in Coxsackie.

killer_trucksBut back to our topic on “Killer Trucks,” As many of our local commuters know already, you aren’t likely to be getting anywhere on time these days. And you’re not very likely to be doing your usual 50-55 miles per hour along Rt 144 or 9W either. It used to be you could finagle your schedule around the school buses that stop at every damned driveway along 144 or 9W and if you could manage to avoid those times, you’d be able to make it to where you were going. Now, forget about it! If the school buses don’t getcha, Lafarges or Carver Company’s trucks will.  You just won’t win, people!

Then you have the cable and utility trucks and crews that park in the traffic lane and put up traffic cones but don’t bother with any flagmen. There’s something to the expression, “line of sight” we see in straight lines, not around corners or over crests. But that doesn’t matter. You’re responsible, remember that. So you cross the double line to get around the cones and the trucks while the cable or utility employees are huddled together in bullshit session and you meet head on with one of Lafarge’s or Carver’s trucks. No problem, your accident gets a spot in the Ravena News Herald and in the Times Union obituaries and Babcock  Funeral Home, one of the only businesses left in Ravena only because those who can’t afford to move out stay and die, gets some business. Besides, hiring flagmen creates jobs and jobs cost companies money; bad idea.

We recently received a letter from a local resident who makes our point for us. We initially weren’t going to publish it because it seemed someone was just bitching but then IT HAPPENED TO US! That made all the difference in the world so here’s the letter [in part redacted to make it at least PG material]:

I’ve been reading your blog and thought you might be interested in this.
I was driving on 144 out of Albany to Ravena and by the old Elks lodge ended up behind a large truck, like a tractor trailer but open like a dump truck. The speed limit in the area is 55 mph but the truck was doing like 35-40 — like 35 then 40 then 45 then back to 30 — I usually do about 50 on that stretch and because it was kinda wintery and overcast I was doing about 50 before catching up with the truck. I couldn’t pass right away because it was in a double line strech but at about Mocker Bros. farm I decided to pass. I had my lights on and signaled to pass got about halfway past the truck and he speeds up! So I try to pass him and he’s going even faster. Then I notice another large truck coming (but no headlights on) towards me and I just have enough time to flash my lights and pull over to the left shoulder. The oncoming truck didn’t have any running lights or headlights on and if the cab wasn’t white, I may not have seen it until it was too late. If I did not do that I would not have been able to drop back and avoid a head-on with the other truck. I was fit to be tied; I wanted blood…not mine. So I  was again behind this a…. m— f— [redacted] and was thinking I needed to follow him until he stopped. But then I thought about it and we were already in Coeymans and if I f—ed him up I’d probably be the one arrested and in jail for kicking the s— [redacted] out of the a— [redacted] who thought it was funny trying to get me to be one of your statistics. You would have loved it if I was one of your first fatalities but then I’d be dead. Ha-ha!
Anyway, I thought you would like to know about this. I got a couple of pix of the truck and saw it was Troy Sand and Gravel…can you guess where it turned in Coeymans?
Thanks,
A Survivor
P.s. I couldn’t read the license plate even if I wanted to complain. Isn’t there a law that says the plate has to be readable. These trucks are so dirty you can never read the plates. Well, if I have a dirty plate or a light out the cops would have me in a minute. Must be something going on that these guys don’t get stopped and ticketed like we do.
This all happened on Friday [Editor’s note: That would be December 5, 2014] between 2:45 and 3:15. Maybe that will help.

The writer of the above letter provided the picture of the truck that appears in the title. It’s much bigger than a common dump truck, and you can’t make out the license plate number at all. It’s too filthy. Here’s another picture of the same truck from a different angle, taken by “Survivor”.

cropped truckYup! Not a week after receiving that e-letter we had a similar experience. Not quite as hair-raising as “Survivor’s” but close enough. We’ve come to the conclusion that these Lafarge and Carver truck drivers are recruited from the local looney bin or drunk tank. Wouldn’t you think that “professional” trained truck drivers would have more sense? That they would be trained in road safety and road etiquette? They apparently have the brains of an RCS school bus driver, that is, about the same IQ as a chicken!

With everything else going to hell in a hand basket in Ravena, Coeymans, New Baltimore, and in the bigger picture, do we have to expect that in these communities, thanks to the town of Coeymans board, the village council of Ravena, and the New Baltimore town board sellouts to the Lafarges and Carver Laraways of the world that we in these communities are about to become irrelevant, even extinct? Our town and village officials sell us out at Walmart sale prices, carpetbagger businesses like TCI and Carver Companies come in and take over the town and region, our elected officials have the brains of a decapitated turkey when it comes to managing our affairs, and even parents have betrayed their own children by handing them over to surrogates like the RCS schools and bus drivers, and what do they get delivered to their driveways? Kids that have less character than frozen vegetable medley — quick, easy, tasteless.

dawn-of-the-braindeadAnd so, for example, we find the teenage girl working as a cashier in the Ravena Shop’n Save who had to ask What’s this? when presented with a bunch of beets. She actually didn’t know what beets looked like and had to ask. Here we had a 16 or 17 year old girl, almost an adult, presumably in the middle of high-school and almost out in the real world, who is working in a supermarket but doesn’t know what a bunch of beets is! The product of great parenting, superior schooling, unparalleled experience (just being sarcastic because none of that is even remotely true). But you can bet your life she knows how to get lost in her smartphone on Facebook or some other asocial media! That’s what we have to deal with people! Are you proud of that?

Why is it that Ravena, Coeymans and New Baltimore have the amazing capacity to get saddled with elected officials, whose only talent seems to be their insane egos, their amazing capacity to outdo the incompetence, the ignorance, the stupidity and hypocrisy of their predecessors (for example, in Ravena, Misuraca‘s moving in with the Bruno mob, the sewer and water comedy act, the wholesale migration out of the village, the record number of empty and distressed properties, etc.; in Coeymans the incompetence in managing finances, the Coeymans board’s idolatry and cowing to the false prophets of business and jobs, the creation of environmental hazards and pollution, illegal local legislation, general corruption; New Baltimore with it’s psycho egos, its backward vision, its misplaced priorities, its abysmal record-keeping and cronyism, plus many of the problems of Ravena and Coeymans!)

braindeadThe Christmas season used to be a time of joyful expectation and the hope of a New Year with promise of bounty and plenty. That’s all a thing of the past and we’re all largely to blame. So, during this holiday season, rather than be Pollyanna about the reality that we have to live with each and every day of our lives, we’d rather be prophetic about this whole situation and say that we need to pull our heads out of the sand or out of any other dark holes in which we may have stuck them and realize that…

ASS-PAIN

… we have to look forward to a slower, more expensive, and more dangerous, higher-anxiety 2015 than we could have ever imagined a year ago. Why? Because we have allowed it to happen. We have not held our elected officials accountable and we have allowed them to have their way with us. If your butts hurt really bad, just read the past issues of this blog and then ask yourself why you never woke up and never took control.

All having been said,

RCS Santa Claus

RCS Santa Claus
Ho, Ho, Ho! You been had, you ho’!

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year — if you can.

Totally Brainless! Ravena Employee Wants His SSAN Removed!

It seems that Nancy Warner, Annette Demitraszek, Kris Biernacki, and Cathy Deluca are not the only nitwits on the village of Ravena payroll. The whole village hall is filled to overflowing with the brain dead, the 100% brainless.

A village of Ravena resident writes to us:

Dear Editor,

Recently I was stopped and asked by a former Ravena Village employee if I could contact you and have his name and partial Social security info removed from one of your articles.  The employee couldn’t understand why his name and info was part of the article. He also asked, Why, some village employees’ names were not used.  He also believed I have some influence with you.  Wrong! I corrected him.
I stated I have been sharing records and info for over 35 years and I have shared it with dozens of groups over those years. I have no or very, very, very little influence with any or what this blog or its editor publishes. Many individuals from this community  contact this blog with their own info. There is a reason  why  documents  are file in “triplicate ,” so  there is at least three diffent  places the info is stored, from which to obtain the data.  There is more than one way to get info, files or data too. That’s why I share info with anyone who requests it. (If I have the records.
I had a brief discussion with the village employee after he explained to me, who they believed the “blogger” is and that I was working with him/her.  I stated, the person who you think the blogger is,grew up here, went to RSC schools. I moved here about 20 years ago, that person knows far more than I do about the players on both sides of any issue, and this community that’s If and a “BIG IF”, if that person were in fact the blogger. I asked have you ever “eye witnessed” them post the blog? I haven’t. I told the village employee to be careful about “hearsay” you could be very wrong!  [redacted] Be careful. I read the article, I see the theme as “incompetence”, “waste of tax dollar”s, the blog editor was pointing it out for billionth time. Your privacy rights were violated, you have a lawsuit. The employee stupidly replied I can’t sue the village!   Yes, you can. You can sue just to get records when they refuse to produce public records too!  State Judges get an un-redacted copy then they decide what to redact. I know Judge Keegan gave me an un-redacted copy 25 years ago.  The state employee was fired for accessing my record without my consent. Ok, here are some of your options about the article on the blog: You can write a comment to the editor, the blog and you don’t have to use your real name. You can talk to village mayor and/or trustees. You can contact the NYS attorney General’s office and/or the Office of the NYS Comptroller.  And yes I’ll repeat myself you can file a law suit against the village of Ravena for disclosing your personal information.
The village employee then asked me to write to you, as promised to the Village employee, I’m requesting you to remove their names and info.

Thank you
Laszlo Polyak

Ravena Clerk Discloses Protected Information: Aids Identity Theft

While we understand that nobody in Ravena village hall reads this blog. We also understand that village of Ravena employees don’t read this blog. Or so they’d like us to believe. So we’re just wondering what’s going on in Ravena village hall now that the cat is out of the bag and village of Ravena employees and former employees are aware that the village of Ravena clerk’s office is broadcasting their personal protected information? What’s Ravena mayor Misuraca doing about it? After all, he’s the head of the dead fish (that’s where it starts to rot). Nancy Warner was there the whole time and holds the dirty end of the stick. What’s the story with the Bruno appointees, the incompetence twins Demitraszek and Biernacki?

Why is the moron village employee going to a village resident to ask that his SSAN be removed from the blog? Just like everyone else in Ravena village hall he probably has his head up his arse and didn’t understand a word we wrote about the law-breaking still going on in Misuraca’s village hall. Misuraca didn’t get rid of or replace the rats left over from mayor Bruno’s dictatorship, Misuraca simply moved in with them.

Instead of thanking this blog and its contributors for letting the public know what’s going on in Ravena village hall. Instead of being grateful for the information that his personal protected information has been broadcast by the village of Ravena clerk’s office. Instead of going after the village of Ravena and the culprits who were disseminating protected personal information, the jackass goes to a local resident! A peanut has more intelligence than the village employee in question here!

Brainiac's Head X-ray

Brainiac’s Head X-ray

Here’s  how it’s done, Dumbo: You pull your head out of your arse, take a deep breath. Then you read Mr Polyak’s e-mail, that is, if you can read. Your beef is with the village of Ravena, Dumbass, not with this blog. You need to read Mr William “Mouse” Misuraca the riot act and ask Misuraca what in hell is going on there! You need to go to a village board meeting and raise some hell there. You need to file a complaint with the New York State Attorney General, the New York State Secretary of State and his moron Robert Freeman, who runs the Committee On Open Government (COOG: Phone: (518) 474-2518 – Fax: (518) 474-1927 – e-mail: coog@dos.ny.gov) — Yeah! He’s the one who tells Demitraszek and Biernacki what they can and cannot disclose when and if they respond to a citizen’s demand under the NYS Freedom of Information Act. You need to write a comment to this blog literately, that is, saying how you feel about the disclosure of your personal information, urging others to do the same.

You’re a good and honorable man, Mr Polyak. You kept your promise to the village employee but the names and last-four (some scrambled) stay posted. But you might want to ask why Nancy Warner’s, Hal Warner’s, Cathy Deluca’s, Annette Demitraszek’s, Kristine Biernacki’s names and SSANs aren’t on the list. We found that a bit business-as-usual for the village of Ravena. Selective treatment, selective disclosure.

As we mentioned in our original article, we’re just the messengers; the village of Ravena disclosed your personal information in full, not us. We had the courtesy to safeguard your information. You might ask who else might have your information, though, and what they’re doing with it thanks to your friends in village hall.

While you’re at it, you may want to  seize the opportunity and order yourself one of these nifty hats, just so that the general public knows you’re an employee of the Village of Ravena and they can take appropriate precautions.

FAILURE: RAVENA FITNESS CENTER OPEN HOUSE WAS A FLOP!!!

Even the Heavens Poured Forth Their Outrage at the Scandal of the
Ravena Health and Fitness Center!!!

Deluca tries to raise interest in Ravena Fitness Dump Gets Cold Shoulder from Public!

Deluca tries to raise interest in Ravena Fitness Dump
Gets Cold Shoulder from Public!

Even while Ravena mayor Misuraca and his band of amateurs are continuing to allow Cathy Deluca and her moneypit Ravena Health and Fitness Center to hemorrhage more than $6,000 of taxpayer money every month; Misuraca and the Ravena sockpuppets on the village council still allow Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner to lie their way into keeping the failing fitness center’s doors open.

When will anyone wake up and realize that we’re all being taken for fools by Misuraca, Deluca, and Warner!?!?!?

Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca mailed out several hundreds of flyers trying to generate interest in the dump they run. They then announced an “open house” trying to get people to come in and see the dilapidated, unsanitary, makeshift excuse for a fitness center. But justice and fairness poured out of the sky in protest: Even the Heavens poured forth their outrage and it was a whiteout on December 10, the day of the open house, and practically no one showed up. What a sight it was to see Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner sitting at the reception desk…alone and forelorn. Couldn’t have happened to a more evil duo!

Deluca and Warner Consoling Each Other During the RHFC "Open House"

Deluca and Warner Consoling Each Other During the RHFC “Open House”

Our burning question is: When will Misuraca get smart and do Ravena taxpayers justice and fairness and finally dump Deluca and her moneypit. Deluca knows what she’s doing: She’s stealing your money! She knows the fitness center is a dumpy dud! But she is trying to milk everything she can out of it before she leaves Ravena taxpayers holding the empty cash bag.

What excuses will Miisuraca and his sockpuppets come up with next? Well, the good news is it’s starting to look like Misuraca the bartender wannabe mayor and his collection of sockpuppets are definitely one-termers!

Poor Monkey Mayor!Still grinning stupidly on camera but he's a sad little monkey! Hasn't a clue what to do!

Poor Monkey Mayor!
Still grinning stupidly on camera but he’s a sad little monkey! Hasn’t a clue what to do!

P.s. Anyone see arch-hypocrites Bill Bailey and Nancy Warner criticizing the town of Coeymans board last week about the budget shortfall? If there was ever a case of pots calling the kettle black that was it! After decades of mismanaging water and sewer funds the village of Ravena finally got forced to separate the sewer from the water funds! DUH!!! Bailey and Warner managed to extract their feet from their anuses and insert them into their big mouths!

Next article will look at the town of New Baltimore’s antics. They took 8 months to write a new town employee handbook. Didn’t anyone in New Baltimore town hall think to call around to see if they couldn’t get a handbook from another town and adapt it? Now they want to get grants for their sewer system. Hasn’t New Baltimore supervisor Nick Dellisanti and his band of sockpuppets noticed that New Baltimore is losing population? Haven’t they noticed that New Baltimore is starting to look like Ravena and Coeymans Hamlet with all the vacant buildings? Maybe Dellisanti and his band of amateurs should start looking around and identifying what New Baltimore really needs: good, efficient, knowledgeable government. Maybe also some responsible recordkeeping, too! Not a pack of wannabes! Reality Check: This is not a party game, this is real life. Put your egos away for now. It’s our lives you’re toying with. Get serious, guys, or it can get ugly!

Quiz: Which two 11-letter words characterize New Baltimore’s vision for the future?
(get the answer in our next article)

New Baltimore Town Board We're desperately trying to see things from the board's point of view.

Ravena Clerk Discloses Protected Information: Aids Identity Theft

The village of Ravena has had so much to hide for so long that it loses track of what it should hide and what it should make public. Nancy Warner and her minions do a pretty good job of violating the law when it comes to responding to demands for disclosure under the New York State Freedom of Information Law, especially when the request has to do with some of their pet projects like the Ravena Health and Fitness Center or their dealings with local attorneys like Michael Biscone. We thought the cloak and dagger games were over when William “Moose” Misuraca booted John Bruno out of the mayor’s office. But it seems it’s business as usual in Ravena village hall.

RAVENA CLERK’S OFFICE DISCLOSES PROTECTED PERSONAL INFORMATION

Hasn’t Anyone in the Village of Ravena Clerk’s Office Heard of the
1974 Privacy Act or of H.I.P.A., or Any of the Other Laws Protecting Privacy?

privacy-personal-informationRavena village “trustee” Nancy Warner and her minions Annette Demitraszek (Clerk-Treasurer) and Kristine Biernacki do their very best to keep things from the public, even when a lawful demand is made under the NYS F.O.I.L., but when they try to hide everything, they ultimately trip themselves up. This time they really did a great job of making fools of themselves and they shat right where they eat!

A local resident has turned papers over to us that s/he received in response to a demand for disclosure under the NYS Freedom of Information Law. The F.O.I.L. demanded documents relating to village of Ravena employees, their salaries, benefits, etc. The village of Ravena responded — very unusual indeed — by providing a number of printouts for village employees. The printouts were improperly redacted — normally protected information like social security account numbers, home addresses, etc. are removed from the documents — but not in this case.

DISCLO~1The documents we have received show everything, clearly legible, including Employee No., Name, Address, Soc-Sec-No., Phone No., Department, Retirement No., and much more. Imagine this scenario: A criminal makes a F.O.I.L. request to the village of Ravena clerk’s office,  Nancy Warner and her puppets Annette Demitraszek (Clerk-Treasurer) and Kristine Biernacki process the request and turn over to the possible identity thief all the information s/he could possible dream of getting. Here’s just a sample of what we can see in the documents provided by the village of Ravena clerk’s office (unlike the village of Ravena clerks, we have reproduced only the last four digits of the individual’s SSAN and Retirement No. — some of them have been scrambled but the owners will still be able to recognize them):

Beck, Edward J. SSAN XXX – XX – 0733 Retire # XXXX2702
Bruno, Josephine P. SSAN XXX – XX – 9128 Retire # XXXX4257
Conners, Scott D. SSAN XXX – XX – 1470 Retire # XXXX2583
Court, Alan D. Sr. SSAN XXX – XX – 9326 Retire # XXXX2753
Golgoski, Timothy R SSAN XXX – XX – 4806 Retire # XXXX6237
Hoyt, Vanessa L. SSAN XXX – XX – 4335 Retire # XXXX5810
Leonard, Jason T. SSAN XXX – XX – 5424 Retire # XXXX8086
Shear, James M. SSAN XXX – XX – 4686 Retire # XXXX5801
Traver, Henry C. SSAN XXX – XX – 9985 Retire # XXXX4928
Trombley, Joel K. Sr. SSAN XXX – XX – 4093 Retire # XXXX2691
Van Etten, Lee C. SSAN XXX – XX – 8490 Retire # XXXX6694

Disclaimer: Since the above information and other information contained in the documents was produced and disclosed by the village of Ravena’s clerk’s office, and was disclosed and released in response to a demand made under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Law, we reasonably presume that it was made public by an official act of the Ravena village clerk prior to our publication; consequently  we assume no liability for its publication here. It’s obviously out there now, thanks to the Ravena clerks.

It’s really comical to see these morons in action. They don’t provide what the law says they have to provide but they provide what the law says they must not provide. Nancy Warner and her minions Annette Demitraszek (Clerk-Treasurer) and Kristine Biernacki and the rest of those humanoids in Ravena village hall are living proof of the walking brain dead.

Residents and taxpayers/property owners in the village of Ravena should also be aware that Demitrazek and Biernacki are Bruno appointees! Yes! They were appointed by former mayor John Bruno and his hatchet-faced sidekick Nancy Warner. Make no mistake about it, when Bruno appointed you it wasn’t for your brains! You had to leave your brain at the door and follow orders from Bruno and Warner. What we don’t understand is Why? incoming mayor William Misuraca didn’t show some leadership and replace the whole lot when he took office! Being a wuss just set him up to be embarrassed by the leftovers from the last corrupt administration. Shame on you, Misuraca!

The Privacy Act vs.the Freedom of Information Laws

old man grimace
The Privacy Act of 1974, as amended at 5 U.S.C. 552a, protects records that can be retrieved from a system of records by personal identifiers such as a name, social security number, or other identifying number or symbol. (A system of records is any grouping of information about an individual under the control of a public agency from which information is retrievable by personal identifiers).

An individual is entitled to access to his or her records and to request correction of these records by stating the reasons for such actions with supporting justification showing how the record is untimely, incomplete, inaccurate or irrelevant. The Privacy Act prohibits disclosure of these records without written individual consent unless one of the twelve disclosure exceptions enumerated in the Act applies. These records are held in Privacy Act systems of records. These notices identify the legal authority for collecting and storing the records, individuals about whom records will be collected, what kinds of information will be collected, and how the records will be used (See http://www.socialsecurity.gov/foia/bluebook/toc.htm).

privacy-lawWARNING: If you provide any personal information to the village of Ravena be prepared for the possibility that they’ll share it indiscriminately. These documents and the information they contain are clear proof that the village of Ravena’s clerk office staff are or were incompetent, and it certainly puts Ms Nancy Warner in a very embarrassing position, given her role as dominatrix in the clerk’s office and domineering its staff for so many years!

This unconscionable and gross violation of these individuals’ and likely countless others’ privacy rights, and the potential of exposing them to identity theft, by the inept and incompetent village of Ravena clerk’s office will and should result in any number of claims and lawsuits against the village of Ravena and its employees by these current and past victims of the clerks’ incompetence and ignorance. Clearly those former employees like Vanessa Hoyt who suffered indignities at the hands of the Bruno-Warner machine have yet another cause for action. Our recommendation to the others whose personal information has been unlawfully disclosed: Demand that the inept clerks be terminated! Demand Nancy Warner’s resignation! Notify and file a complaint with the state and federal authorities! File your lawsuits! Anyone else who thinks the village of Ravena has their personal information on file should immediately contact the village of Ravena and demand to know what precautions are being implemented to safeguard your personal information, and demand to know how that information is being used!

How Morally Depraved Can Cathy Deluca, Misuraca’s Village Board, Be?

deadhorseWill Misuraca and his Mooselets on the Ravena village council ever wake up? At the November 18, 2014, public meeting that had all of six people attending (at least 3 of them village employees) here’s what you would have heard: No one seems to have gotten a monthly report from Cathy Deluca on the Fitness Center. Misuraca, Warner looking stupid and having to admit no one got a report (while village council member Joel Coye sits chewing and picking his nose on camera! What’s he chewing? Yuck!). But Nancy Warner announced that the Fitness Center is planning to send out brochures to attempt to get members! IDIOTS! It’s almost two years and the Ravena Health and Fitness Center is still FAILING! Wake up! Smell the coffee (or the bullshit, which is getting pretty strong)! But you’re still beating the dead horse! How long is Misuraca and his crew going to let this thing go on? Late November, just before the Winter holidays is no time to be sending out brochures for a fitness club! Go figure! They put the “R” in RETARDS!


Several weeks have passed since the Ravena News Herald printed their article on the fact that Cathy Deluca’s playpen, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, has been hemorrhaging more than $6,000 a month of Ravena taxpayers’, property-owners’ dollars. But that’s where it all stopped, it seems. Our question is:

How Morally Depraved is Cathy Deluca and Ravena Mayor William Misuraca’s Village Board?

MORAL DEPRAVITY HAS A HOME IN RAVENA

MORAL DEPRAVITY HAS A HOME IN RAVENA
And it sits on the Ravena village council and runs the Ravena Health and Fitness Center

This blog has been exposing the corruption and criminality surrounding the creation of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and the corrupt and criminal way that the Bruno-Warner village board lied their way into creating a non-competitive civil service position for Cathy Deluca. The fact that Bruno and Warner did everything they could to ensure that their appointee, Deluca, got the position and no one else even had a chance at it was no big deal to expose. We did it right here and we embarrassed the Albany Department of Civil Service and Albany County into giving the director of the Albany Department the boot. But Ravena has no pride and no morals so Cathy Deluca got the position, got the exempt non-competitive classification, she even “Interneted” her credentials (unqualified but receiving her salary at YOUR expense), still bamboozling the Civil Service morons into allowing her to keep the position. If you or I tried even half of that sort of criminal lying and fraudulent misrepresentation, we’d be in Albany County jail — or worse — but Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and Gregory Darlington go Scott free and can collect fat pensions at our expense while Cathy Deluca pockets more than $30,000 a year in salary plus full benefits to waste $6,000 a month of Ravena taxpayers’ dollars! Doesn’t anyone see what’s wrong with this picture?!?

Cathy Deluca even lied her way out of criminal proceedings when here husband, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, then still with the Coeymans police department, bullied Coeymans police officer Jason Albert, with the blessing of then police chief Gregory “Dumplington” Darlington, into burying the investigation of Cathy Deluca’s misdemeanor lying to a police officer, when she tried to fraudulently incriminate a local resident! That was a misdemeanor on Cathy Deluca’s part, and obstruction of justice by Darlington and his sockpuppet Jason Albert but Darlington got to “retire” (in lieu of prosecution? Will Darlington’s wife, Leah Darlington, a secretary in race-card-player Albany County DA David Soares‘ office type out the warrant?) and Albert got an “attaboy” promotion to detective! So much for respect for the laws of this state and nation: The biggest criminals are the law enforcement officers and their spouses! But with a new police chief and pressure from the community, not to mention literally dozens of unresolved complaints and pending lawsuits against the Coeymans p.d. and individual officers, justice may still be served. Let’s see what happens in the coming weeks, months.


Our stats show that Leah Darlington or someone in the Albany County District Attorney’s office is spending taxpayer dollars wisely: between November 16 and November 19, that person visited this blog 68 times, spending several hours total here! Thank you! Albany County DA P. David Soares, for hiring a Darlington to misuse taxpayer money!


But even if you don’t take the time to search this blog and re-read the many articles we’ve written for you exposing the Delucas, the Warners, the Darlingtons, the Coeymans police department’s obstruction of justice and other civil violations and criminal acts and negligence, you can’t overlook the fact that at least SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS are being wasted every month, and neither Cathy Deluca nor the Ravena Village Board have the decency to put a stop to it.

Who can deny the glaring facts that:

Mayor "Moose" Misuraca thought he was getting this...

Mayor “Moose” Misuraca thought he was getting this...

  • Cathy Deluca to Nancy Warner: Do this! The Moose loves it!

    BUT he got this, instead!
    (Cathy Deluca to Nancy Warner: Do this! The “Moose” loves it!)

    Cathy Deluca was personally selected by former mayor John Bruno and his sidekick Nancy Warner to have the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. Hasn’t anyone asked what favors were being repaid by Bruno and Warner? Why no one else, maybe someone qualified, was given the opportunity to apply — even if it would be hopeless?

  • Why did former mayor John Bruno and village trustee Nancy Warner conspire to not only hand Cathy Deluca the position as manager of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, but went to extraordinary trouble to fabricate an application made to the Albany County Civil Service Department — the application was incomplete, inaccurate, fraudulent — to get her a non-competitive classification, exempt from any examination, full benefits, etc.
  • Cathy Deluca knew then and still knows that she’s killed two private health and fitness clubs before she was handed the Ravena Health and Fitness Center but she still took the opportunity to prove she could kill yet another one. Don’t any of you think that that is morally depraved? Criminal on Deluca’s part, to knowingly take a position she knew she couldn’t handle and now, after two years of screwing around, is proving she can kill yet another business, this time one belonging to the public.
  • Don’t you think it’s morally depraved of Ravena Mayor William “Moose” Misuraca, and his Ravena village council, to allow this to go on without finally putting a stop to it? They even admitted publicly that if a business were losing that kind of money that any sensible and responsible manager would shut it down. Why hasn’t Mayor William Misuraca and his village council morons locked the doors on the Ravena Health and Fitness Center?

And Why Haven’t Any of these Crooks and Frauds been Charged, Prosecuted, Punished?

Maybe Ravena Mayor William “Moose” Misuraca, the director of the Albany County Department of Civil Service John Marsolais, Coeymans police chief Peter J. McKenna, or Albany County DA P. David Soares can offer a satisfactory explanation for that burning question!

But the worst shame and blame still falls on Cathy Deluca’s head! She knows shes stealing taxpayer money. She knows she’s unqualified to make the Ravena playpen work. She knows that Ravena can’t sustain a business that can’t compete. She knows that the village of Ravena should not be running a business that can’t compete. But she has no morals! She has no ethics! She has only her sow’s belly full of greed! Her only objective is to take as much as she can suck out of this community and then…STOP HER IN HER DIRTY TRACKS!

And do you wonder for a second why Annette Demitraszek and Kristine Biernacki, Bruno appointees and Warner sock-puppets, who are supposed to be village clerks and public servants, refuse to respond to any demand under the New York State Freedom of Information Law by refusing to provide public access information, information that the public has a right to know, about the Ravena Health and Fitness Center? If they let the information out they feel they’ll all land in jail! Unless they disclose the information, there’s a Notice of Claim waiting to be served, and a lawsuit waiting to be filed. They may all have a date with the corrections system before this is over!

Ravena needs a Health and Fitness Center like a Bull Needs Tits!

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center

SHAME ON CATHY DELUCA AND HER IMMORALITY AND DEPRAVITY!

SHAME ON MAYOR MISURACA FOR HIS INDIFFERENCE AND IRRESPONSIBILITY!

SHAME ON THE RAVENA VILLAGE COUNCIL FOR THEIR INCOMPETENCE AND IRRESPONSIBILITY!

SHAME ON VILLAGE OF RAVENA RESIDENTS FOR NOT FORCING AN END TO THIS CORRUPT FARCE!

Emperor Has New Clothes! Cathy Deluca on her way to the bank; Ravena residents stand by, idly watching! The Editor.

Coming up…

Stay tuned for important upcoming articles. We’ll be posting articles on subjects like:

  • Why the Ravena News Herald is NOT your Friend. Still a mouthpiece for the insider’s club in Ravena-Coeymans. Lots of propaganda, half-truths, very, very old “news”, and more news from elsewhere than Ravena-Coeymans. Is it worth paying a dollar for 8 pages of public notices?
  • Coeymans Resolution creating three new police commissioners…Why? What are they supposed to do? Maybe resolve the dozens of outstanding claims against the Darlington-Deluca mob? see below.
  • Coeymans town budget for 2015. Hidden nuggets…can YOU find them?
  • New Police Chief Shows Great Promise for the Town of Coeymans and the Coeymans police department! But only if the amateurs on the town board shut their mouths, mind their business, and stay out of they way. Will that happen?
  • What’s new in New Baltimore after a year of … Well, a year of … NUTHIN’!

Coeymans Board Members and Laverne Conrad Padding their Pockets!

And it ain't the veggies that they're double-dipping!

And it ain’t the veggies that they’re double-dipping!

Rumor is that former Coeymans police chief Gregory “Dumplington” Darlington was allowed to resign from the Coeymans Police Department because if he didn’t he was going to have to defend against charges of multiple violations of citizens’ civil rights. Any other place and Dumplington would have to face the music but in the town of Coeymans he gets to waltz away Scott free, with a handsome pension, and a retirement badge to boot! That’s how the town of Coeymans handles its criminals. (That’s also the likely story behind Dirty-Hands Jerry’s abrupt retirement, too!).

And speaking of Coeymans Criminals…

Isn’t it interesting that the town of Coeymans accepts former police chief Gregory Dumplington Darlington’s resignation amid rumors of his possible prosecution (Who would prosecute? His bosom buddy the corrupt racist Albany County DA David Soares? Only if the charges were criminal. He can still be netted on civil charges. Are you ready, Dumplington?) Dumplington left the police department in a state of shambles, morale in the pooper, and exposed to dozens of possible lawsuits. Yet the town of Coeymans, rather than discipline the dolt, rather than prosecute him, paid him more than $100,000 a year in salary, benefits and perqs, and then honored him! Crackheads on the Coeymans town board!

And speaking of Crackheads on the Coeymans Town Board…

Isn’t it interesting that the Coeymans town board appointed a 23-year veteran law enforcement officer, a former homicide detective who knows how to investigate and who knows the law, a real trained law enforcement officer, as interim police chief (pending confirmation by the Department of Civil Service), but is paying him half of what they were paying the ignorant, incompetent, destructive Gregory Dumplington! Darlington, a former garbage collector-turned-dispatcher, fired (Was he “fired??? with Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca) from his position by former chief Scott Gireaux when Gireaux reorganized the department, rehired by a former knucklehead supervisor. Dumplington who failed the police chief’s exam THREE times before passing it destroyed this community’s trust in law enforcement and violated their civil rights but got paid six-figures and was honored for doing it.

But the new police chief’s salary is his business, and he may get the full salary once he’s confirmed as permanent police chief. But for now, he’s getting $21.93/hour which will got to $55,000 annual salary on January 1, 2015. Isn’t it odd that the town of Coeymans supervisor Stephen Flach, and his board of monkeys Peter E. Masti, George E. Langdon, Thomas E. Dolan, and Kenneth A. Burns take law enforcement so lightly that they’ll pay a professional law enforcement officer less than a laborer? What does that tell you about serious public safety and the “wisdom” of the Coeymans town board? How long do you think a professional law enforcement officer’s sense of duty and public service will last at that salary?

So we’ll let him do what he has to do before we comment.

double-dip

Is the Town of Coeymans paying the Police Chief less so that board members Peter Masti, George Langdon, and code officer Laverne Conrad can get a piece of the action?

But here’s where it gets really interesting and where we, the community, have to start asking some questions.

What we’re concerned about here is something we noted in the Town of Coeymans resolutions: In a resolution passed by the Coeymans town board on September 26, 2014, the town of Coeymans board creates the Board of Police Commissioners. In that same resolution it appoints Peter E. Masti, George E. Langdon, and Laverne “Larry Conrad” to be the commissioners on that board. The resolution also sets their terms to end on December 31, 2014, and that they will serve “without compensation.” In other words, the town supervisor proposes the resolution, a board member seconds it  — it’s kosher so far but then it goes rotten — and two members of the town board (Masti and Langdon) vote for themselves to be on the police board of commissioners! They then bring in our old friend, corrupt and criminal Laverne “Larry” Conrad to be the third member. None of these morons has any law enforcement experience, none have the sense you could fill a thimble with, and the fact that they appointed themselves and a crony to supervise a law enforcement department is nothing less than scandalous. The board should be made up of persons from the community who have no vested interests or conflicts of interests!!!

Even though you may admit it’s pretty crooked and suspicious that the town board would elect itself and an old insider to be police commissioners, and you may not see the potential for some real scandal to come out of this, you say that’s business as usual in Ravena-Coeymans. If it weren’t for our corruption and stupidity, we’d be nothing! Besides, you say, they are serving without compensation. BUT THAT’S NOT ENTIRELY TRUE!

You see, they’re very clever and have learned a lot over the years about how to deceive us and how to tie us up in knots. But that was all before this blog, dear readers! You see, what the Coeymans town board has done is this: They’ve let a real criminal go — Gregory “Dumplington” Darlington — and put a real professional in his place at a demoralizing rate of compensation. Most of you would say, “Great job! You’re saving us money!” But that’s not true, people. Here’s why: They’re covering their asses by putting the new, qualified police chief in as a stop gap while they connive to screw us later. They then say: “Well, we’ve got a great guy in there but he’s only part time. We have a board of police commissioners who are picking up the slack. They need to be compensated for their work.” So, instead of paying the police chief a fair salary, they put a couple of lugs in the works, just to screw it up good ol’ Coeymans fashion. But they have a plan, you see, and they’ve hidden it real clever-like.

You see, you have there solution of September 26 that says the board of commissioners will serve “without compensationuntil December 31, 2014. But if you have read the Coeymans town board budget (preliminary) for 2015, at page 5, you will see:

2014
ADOPTED BUDGET

2015
TENTATIVE BUDGET

2015
PRELIMINARY
BUDGET

LAW ENFORCEMENT
A3120.12 Commissioner $00.00 $30,000.00 $30,000.00
A3120.11 Chief Salary $88,941.00 $30,000.00 $30,000.00
LAW ENFORCEMENT
A3120.12 Commissioner $30,000.00 ⇑ UP
A3120.11 Chief Salary $58,941.00 ⇓ DOWN

Put in very simple terms we have a significant and scandalous situation here:

It must be said that NYS Town Law § 150(2) concerning the board of police commissioners does state that the holders of that position must be electors of the town and must serve without compensation. We are arguing that (1) there is no written policy governing what and how they do what they think they’re going to do. (2) the public has not been consulted, (3) there is no civilian advisory board in place to provide community inputs, (4) there is no explanation or justification of the budget line item for A3129.12 commissioner justifying $30,000 of taxpayer money! As usual, the Coeymans town board is doing everything ass-end-backwards!

The Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach proposes a resolution, the resolution is seconded by Kenneth A. Burns (member of the Flach team elected with Flach and Langdon), Coeymans town board passes a resolution in September to create a police board of commissioners. Two of the town board members are nominated to be commissioners. So you have Flach (proposes the resolution), Peter E. Masti (nominated to be a commissioner), and George E. Langdon (town board member nominated to be a commissioner). The only one left out is Thomas E. Dolan, who is the sole democrap on the board, who expectedly votes NO on the resolution. Not surprising in the least. So they take a “democrapic” vote and pass the resolution. OUR PROBLEM WITH THIS: The town board majority fixed the vote to put two sitting board members on the police board of commissioners.

So we now have a police board of commissioners with two sitting town council members on it Masti and Langdon, and an insider employee of the town of Coeymans, Lavern “Larry” Conrad (code enforcement officer with quite a bit of his own baggage). Nevertheless, Masti and Langdon, together, make the majority and can outvote token member Conrad. Why aren’t there any nonpartisan, uncompromised, neutral members on the police board of commissioners?!?!?

We’re not done yet. It’s so clever it’s obvious but because it’s so obvious it’s invisible! To make the initial steps easier for the ignorant residents of the town of Coeymans, Flach and his pets slip in the phrase “for a term ending December 31, 2014, to serve without compensation.” OK. What happens after December 31, 2014, you might well ask?

To find that answer, you need to go back to the Town of Coeymans 2015 Budget. Remember before the 2015 budget, there was no provision in the 2014 budget for line item A3120.12 Commissioner, so if there’s no money for that, you can’t create compensation for it, can you? So, until the end of the fiscal year 2014, the commissioner(s) have to “serve without compensation.” It’s obvious what they’re doing.

Now, look at the budget line item A3120.12 Commissioner for 2015. All of a sudden, the Coeymans town board coughs up $30,000 for police commissioners. Who draws up the budget? Supervisor Stephen D. Flach. Who approves the budget? Coeymans town board members Stephen D. Flach, Peter E. Masti, Thomas E. Dolan, Kenneth A. Burns, Sr., and George E. Langdon. Connect the dots: Members of the Coeymans town board are setting us up to pad their pockets to the tune of $30,000 (doing the math, that’s $10,000 for each of the town officials on the police board of commissioners, two of whom are sitting Coeymans town board members, Masti and Langdon!)

That’s Scandalous! That’s Business-As-Usual in Coeymans!

But what’s worse, still, is that now that their protegé Dumplington has sucked us dry thanks to those dolts on the Coeymans town board, they want a piece of the action and so they screw the new police chief, a competent, experienced law enforcement officer, out of more than half the previous chief’s salary (see the table above). Talk about corruption? Look under your noses!

Our question is this: Are you going to let this slide by (AGAIN) or are you going to raise some hell about it? You have the information now so you can’t ignore what’s going on.

Or have you forgotten the illegal re-zoning, the Carver Laraway/Carver Companies deals, the dangerous truck, dust, and traffic situation created by the stupidity of the Coeymans town board and their caving to businesses that haven’t “created” a single job! What’s it going to take to get you people yelling, hollering, screaming, carrying signs, demanding JUSTICE and FAIRNESS in this community?

The Ravena village board ADMITS that the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, Cathy Deluca’s and Nancy Warner’s unlawful and illegal playpen, is HEMORRHAGING $6000 OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS every month (We told you that a year ago!) but it’s still there. Why is that, people? Are you all brain dead or something? Why haven’t you gone to village meetings yet and demanded that they padlock the doors NOW? Throw Cathy Deluca out! She’ll find somewhere else to do her thieving mischief, but at least it won’t be in Ravena-Coeymans. Or we’d hope it won’t be here!

Desperate Politicians Trying Anything: Elections 2014

Thank you for voting!

You can find the results for the New York State midterm elections for the entire state at (link):
New York State Board of Elections Results.

Our Candidates Took the Race by Storm! Halleluia! Thank You, Voters, Readers!
Remember: Unopposed candidates are not elected, they’re appointed!
BUT New York City & Downstate re-elects Cuomo-the-Homo to be Governor for all of us!

You Elected the Anti-Christ!!!!

You Elected the Anti-Christ!!!!


“Democrats in Blue States in Panic Mode. Desperate Democrats are rushing to save suddenly vulnerable House incumbents, even in states where President Barack Obama cruised to double-digit victories, amid fresh signs of Republican momentum less than a week before the midterm elections” [Report continues at Source]

Elections-2014
Making Moral Decisions in Accordance with Reason and Good Conscience


Christianity, in line with most religions of reason and divine law, teaches us that “by reason of their special vocation it belongs to everyone to seek the Kingdom of God by engaging in temporal affairs and directing them according to God’s will.” We participate in the affairs of government in a special way as to illuminate and order all temporal things with which we are closely associated, so that they may be always affected according the will of God and the glory of the Creator.

With those words, we’d like to bring our readers to the serious matter of the looming critical mid-term elections on Tuesday, November 4th. Now is a good time to remind our readers to remind family, friends and neighbors of our important duty as Americans, as Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, whatever, but all as members of the “American family” to participate in playing our roles in the governance of our troubled country by voting according to our consciences. Faced with these conscious moral choices we can make either a right decision in accordance with reason, and the divine law, or on the other hand, we can make an erroneous judgment that departs from all reason and from divine law. Which will you likely do?


Anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear will see through the half-truths of the messages we hear…

It’s an unfortunate truth, dear readers, that our county no longer is a participative democracy and no longer a multi-party system. Our major political parties, the Democrap and Republican parties, have sunken to abysmal lows in their decadence, depravity, and dishonesty. Anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear will see through the half-truths of the messages we hear over and over again from both parties’ candidates. Are the candidates, their parties, their campaign managers wilfully trying to confuse us? Are they that unscrupulous? Is that all we’ve become to them, nothing less than sheeple?

We have been disgusted on an almost daily basis by the political ads from an absurdly immature and hypocritical ultraliberal, Sean Eldridge. His campaign ads have simply been so childish and inordinately vile that they have to cast him in a very negative light if you really see and hear the message. Eldridge is an arch-hypocrite and worse still, he’s so obvious but he still continues trying to put on a fake face of sincerity while lying through his cosmeticized whitened teeth. When he’s not trying to give his man-wife Chris Hughes one up the chute, he’s planning to give us a good one. Say NO WAY! on ELECTION DAY! and send Sean Eldridge back to his gay gala with Cecilia Tkaczyk (pronounced “cat-shik“) and same-sex hubby Chris Hughes.

We don’t need another democrap pervert in Washington.

Eldridge has pissed all over everything traditional, everything sacred, everything valuable but wants voters to believe he’s the girl/boy next door. Nothing could be farther from the truth, dear readers. He’s as phoney as the white of his teeth! One of Eldridge’s most glaring hypocricies is his mantra: “I want to bring the Internet to rural areas.” Well, that shouldn’t surprise any of us, after all he’s in a same-sex marriage with none other than Chris Hughes, the Facebook mogul. Sure Eldridge wants to put the Internet in everyone’s home so that he and his same-sex hubby can make their millions by putting the depravity of asocial media under more noses. Don’t we have enough of these anti-family, anti-community bastards already? No thanks, Mr Eldridge, get a real job — maybe your same-sex hubby Chris Hughes will give you a cushy job with Facebook — but we have enough perverts in government, we don’t need another democrap pervert in Washington.

Eldridge himself, in an interview with ultra-liberal Jew, Alan Chartok, admits that he, Eldridge, has pretty much financed his own campaign, saying that he’s matched his actual outside fundraising. That means that Eldridge can afford to buy his own election—and is buying his way through his campaign—, almost literally saying he doesn’t have to depend on the people for support, while at the same time he’s criticizing Chris Gibson for getting his financial support from a vast network of private and business supporters. So, now do you think Sean Eldridge has any idea what the 99% need or how they feel? Eldridge operates from the penthouse of the ivory tower! He has no idea nor does he care about us. (You can hear the bullshit interview on WAMC with Alan Chartok at: Eldridge bullshits Chartok.)

Tkaczyk is dead in the water; a political suicide.

As for Eldridge‘s and his same-sex hubby Hughes favorite fag-hag Cecilia Tkaczyk she’s shown her colors for the past two years. Her loyalties are NOT with US, people. Tkazcyk‘s with New York City and where the big bucks are. She may have appeared a bit more defensible if she weren’t so very close to Eldridge and Hughes — so close as to deserve the name “fag hag” — just look at the three hypocrites together at a major gay, lesibian, bisexual, transgender gala earlier this year (photo below). Need we say more? (Please see our recent article: Sean Eldridge: Does he even know how to represent the 99%?) Tkaczyk actually appeared on the ultraliberal Jew’s (again Alan Chartok) WAMC to interview. What a disaster, she completely lost control to Chartok, who interrupted her, led her by the nose, cornered her into mouthing what he wanted her to say. Is that the kind of representation we are looking for in a state senator? She can’t even take control of a radio interview! But she can cow to a silver-spoon girly-boy and his same-sex hubby! In our real world, Tkaczyk is dead in the water; a political suicide.

The ‘Pink Obama” Sean Eldridge with his hubby Chris Hughes and New York state Senator Cecilia Tkaczyk

New Baltimore democraps haven’t even been able to cough up a token opponent!

Barbara Finke, Appointed Interim Town Clerk, Running Unopposed, North Korea Style!

Why even cast a vote for her; if no one votes for her and if only she votes for herself, that 1 vote counts as 100% of votes—a landslide victory! New Baltimore voters, don’t even bother voting for Barbara Finke; don’t even give her numbers! You don’t have to vote for her if she’s unopposed. Let’s see just how many votes she gets if you protest North Korean-type elections in New Baltimore!

In fact, the democraps even at the local level have become irrelevant. Not only did they get trounced in the last elections, losing almost every single seat in local districts, in the town of New Baltimore, where Barbara Finke (R) is running unopposed for the office of New Baltimore town clerk, the democraps haven’t even been able to cough up a token opponent. That’s not democracy, people, that’s how they elect candidates in North Korea! (Please see our article on this subject at: Barbara Finke, Interim New Baltimore Town Clerk, For Example…)

north korea electionVote NO! to Sean Eldridge and his fag-hag Cecilia Tkaczyk.

We are looking at George Amedore, who is seeking re-election this year, and running against Eldridge’s fag hag, Cecilia Tkaczyk. We also have Peter Lopez and Chris Gibson (running against the “Pink Obama”, Sean Eldridge). Paul Tonko is also running for re-election. Our 19th and 20th Congressional districts are at risk. Although we hate to say it, “better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.” Let’s face it, they’re politicians, and unless they have some very conspicuous and glaring faults, we have to understand that they won’t be able to please all of the people all of the time. Eldridge and Tkaczyk have major faults that no one with any sense at all can ignore. But let’s face reality, people, our local and congressional Republicans have it all; they’re the best we have at this moment.

We endorse George Amedore: He made his money by the sweat of his brow, through hard work!
He’s a family man, too!

Say what you will about George Amedore. Yes! He is a millionaire. But he made his millions working his butt off in a family business that just happens to be successful. He has a beautiful family. He respects family values and is a hard worker. That means he gets our votes.

Eldridge and Tkaczyk have desecrated our most sacred values: marriage and family

And for those of you who think we may have a soft spot for Gibson, please read what we have to say in our articles: Don’t Ya Just Love It?, Congressman Chris Gibson Here on October 2, 2014! Be there!, Wow! McCartney-DiAcetis’ Stupidity Goes National, International. We’ve called him out for pussy-footing around the RCS anti-military bias, until DiAcetis (RCS high school principal) and Alan McCartney (RCS CSD interim superintendent) backpedaled until they reversed themselves!).

Eldridge and Tkaczyk have desecrated our most sacred values: marriage and family. Marriage by any definition is between a man and a woman to create children and to raise them responsibly. If Eldridge gets a pair of testicles and Chris Hughes gets a pair of ovaries and they parent a child, we may consider them a “family”. Maybe Cecilia Tkaczyk would play surrogate mother? What do you think, voters? Nah-h-h-h doesn’t work for us either. They’d still be two pervs and a fag hag, no matter how you cut it. George Amadore has our vote.

Peter Lopez: A Man with a Heart and a Brain.

Peter Lopez has been an incredibly accessible and compassionate man in the Assembly representing this district. We’ve seen him several times and find him very interested, very active, very responsible, and very responsive. The man’s got a heart and a brain—makes you wonder what he’s doing in politics, doesn’t it? We say give Peter Lopez your vote; he’s got ours!

We Endorse Colonel Chris Gibson over and against the Pink Obama, Sean Eldridge

Chris Gibson has disappointed us with his performance in investigating the RCS t-shirt scandal; as a retired National Guard officer he was just too quick to sweep the whole thing under the carpet and have done with it. We didn’t like the fact that he didn’t kick more ass and throw some weight around. But after our report on this blog, all of a sudden his campaign ads started touting his military experience. So what? It’s campaign time. Pull all the stops. Gibson’s not off the hook, not by a longshot. But we still feel that he’s the man to re-elect, given the choice between him and the “Pink Obama” Sean Eldridge. Gibson’s got our endorsement and our vote.

Paul Tonko. Again, the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t. Tonko has been a disappointment but he apparently comes up with the bacon now and then. It’s up to us to build a fire under his ass if we want to get something done. Let us know and we’ll provide the matches. If Tonko can commit to giving us his congressional support when we apply for education, healthcare or law enforcement grants, we’d be ready to support him this time around. What do ya say, Pauli, you gonna produce?

Candidates: Are there plans to run a large oil pipeline down from Canada, along the NYS Thruway, past our back yards, down to New Jersey? Come clean!

Here’s a homework assignment for our readers: You may or may not know that there are plans to run a large oil pipeline down from Canada, along the NYS Thruway, past your back yards, down to New Jersey. Did you know that? What do you think of that? Well, have you heard anything from Ms Tkzczyk, Mr Lopez, Mr Gibson, Mr Tonko or anyone about this plan? Well, we have four days before the elections. If any of you know how to contact any of the candidates, please do! And let them know we want to know before November 4th, what they know and where they stand on this serious threat to our local environment and homes! Any of the candidates can post a comment on this blog with their statements and positions. Right here where you all can read it. So if you have a way to contact any of the candidates, hit them with that question and see what they have to say.

In the meantime, before we all get depressed, let’s just remember that we still have a vote and, fortunately, there are many of us who will vote according to our well-informed consciences. We urge you to get involved. This is a culture war and it’s ours to win only if we fight. We may not be in Iraq or Afghanistan but our homeland enemies are just as dangerous as Al-qaida or ISIS, and you know it in your heart of hearts.

Gibson, Tonko, Lopez, Armadore

Gibson, Tonko, Lopez, Amedore
Maybe Astorino but then there’s always

Ravena Village Board Admits It: Fitness Center Hemorrhaging $6000 a Month!

We’ve been writing about it for almost two years. Cathy Deluca’s playpen, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center is hemorraging taxpayer dollars to the tune of $6,000 a month, according to statements made by Ravena village board officials and published in the October 30, 2014, issue of the Ravena News Herald. We been telling you so for the past year! Now it’s official!

Well now it's official!

Well now it’s official!
The Ravena Village Board, Mayor Misuraca admit it; the Ravena News Herald publishes it!
Ravena Health and Fitness Center is on the Block!

Good for you, Mayor Misuraca! You really do have a pair!

Nice pair, Mayor Moose

Nice pair, Mayor Moose

According to the report published in the October 30, 2014, issue of the Ravena News Herald, in an article with the misleading title of “Fitness center members rally against rumored shutdown” by Bryan Rowzee, local kiss-ass sockpuppet wannabe reporter (any surprise), at their regular meeting on October 21, the village of Ravena mayor and village board met and discussed the closing of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. The discussion of the closing was not the focal item but was only one of the items of business to be discussed at that meeting.

And it was no “rally” as Rowzee misleadingly reports. It was more of a gaggle of village idiots with their own small-world interests at heart and no common sense at all. Some people need to get a life and stop embarrassing themselves and this community. It seems the loudest ones at village and town meetings are the local lunatics shouting their stupidity. It’s no wonder the intelligent ones just sit there and shake their heads!

Actually, it really wan’t a “rally” and the place wasn’t packed, Mr Rowzee. It was more like 4-10 supporters, wasn’t it. Plus a paltry petition. Is that reason enough to continue “hemorraging more than $6,000 a month” of taxpayer dollars?

Brainless-animatedOne such village idiot, Alicia Nieves, seems to think that the Ravena Health and Fitness Center benefits the community. Yeah, a community of ONE, named Alicia Nieves? Nieves wants to stay local and doesn’t want to drive “up towards Albany.” So is that a reason why the village has to continue bleeding losses of $6,000 a month? So that Alicia Nieves and her kind don’t have to drive “up towards Albany”? Not a very good argument in our opinion so let’s move on to another genius.

Dorothy Rock, sharing a partial brain with Alicia Nieves, mentions “the camaraderie she has built at the facility,” and “that for your dollar you are getting a lot of good stuff here.” So Ms Rock has made some friends at the Fitness Center. Can’t be many because there are so few members at the Ravena Fitness Center. There’s no interest in the dump. But Dorothy might be right, “you are getting a lot of good stuff here” like cooties? Dermatitis? Again, it’s not much of an argument to support losing $6,000 a month of taxpayer money!

And another freak brought along a petition with 109 names on it, about half of the total members of the fitness flop. So it seems that the Ravena Health and Fitness Center can’t even get all of its members, all 200 of them to sign a petition to keep its doors open. By the way, in order to break even, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center has to have about 500-600 PAYING members. We’d say in the two years it’s been sucking down taxpayer dollars it hasn’t even come close to that figure!

Ethyl H. shoots herself in the foot.

Ethyl H. shoots herself in the foot.

Dear Ethyl Hotaling says it all when she tells the Ravena Village officials that between 2013 to 2014, the membership has grown (?) from 80 members in 2013 to 203 currently. But dear Ethyl then shoots herself in the foot when she says that 63 of those members are retirees using the Silver Sneakers program to cover their membership fees. Silver Sneakers may cover Ethyl’s membership fees but it’s not doing much for the bottom line! The fitness center, under Cathy Deluca’s incompetent management—she has already “managed” two previous fitness centers to failure, even before former mayor John Bruno and Nancy Warner appointed her to manage the Ravena fitness club—is still losing public money to the tune of $6,000 a month, according to Ravena officials. That’s more than many local residents make in a month working full time!

Craig Youmans, who claims to have battled cancer and lung disease for years, uses the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. Youmans says “it’s a place to go.” Well, Mr Youmans, in your fragile physical condition, perhaps you should keep to the Senior Citizens Center or the RCS Community Library. It seems you need to get some professional exercise and fitness assistance geared to your fragile condition. You can’t use the argument that the Ravena Health and Fitness Center can justify its losses just to provide local seniors with a hangout at community expense. That’s why there’s a Senior Center and a community library. Besides, why isn’t Silver Sneakers hosted by the Seniors Center? That would make more sense, wouldn’t it? But then, Ravena-Coeymans specializes in duplicated services at taxpayer expense, and double- even triple-dipping—we won’t mention the Coeymans dispatchers club or the RCS central school district and Matthew “Matt” Miller!

Then the Voice of Reason Chimes in…

Village trustee Kieth Mahler, a local business person and a member of the Misuraca majority on the village board countered, “I don’t want to see anything close, but if you owned a business that was losing $6000 a month, how long would you keep it open?” Now that’s a good question Mr Mahler. Can you tell us how long you’d keep it open? Can you tell us how long you’ll keep the Ravena Health and Fitness Center open now that it’s out that it’s losing $6000 a month?

Now here’s where it gets confusing. Nancy Warner, arch-hypocrite that she is, was one of the ones who created the fitness center in the first place—she and Cathy Deluca and a couple of others met behind closed doors to agree to pay insider Robert Fisk more than $40,000 for used fitness equipment and it was Nancy Warner who was relentless in running the RCS Community Library out of its former location (The library, at least, paying rent! The fitness center isn’t!)—now that two-faced witch is agreeing with Kieth Mahler: “if you owned a business that was losing $6000 a month, how long would you keep it open?” Or is she? Who knows? Who cares? Nancy Warner is can’t be trusted even to back her so-called friend, Cathy Deluca! When the water starts getting hot the worms start squirming, right Nancy?

ass is grass cup

Nancy Warner’s slitting her own pet project’s throat along with her bosom girlfriend’s, Cathy Deluca’s

It’s odd that Warner should mention a private gym that charged only $35.00 a month and went out of business. Why would residents pay more than $200.00 a month for a gym? And that gym, the Ravena fitness center, is hemorrhaging at the rate of $6000 a month. Sounds like a bunch of double-talk as usual from Nancy Warner. As usual, she’s not making any sense at all. And it sounds like she’s slitting her own pet project’s throat along with her bosom girlfriend’s, Cathy Deluca’s. It was only a matter of time. As the saying goes, “There’s no honor among thieves.” How true!

Annette Demitraszek, Ravena village clerk, seems to be jumping on the kill the fitness center bandwagon, too. She’s a Nancy-Warner-brand-sockpuppet and seems to be supporting the closure when she publicly states “the village population is about 3,200″. Do the math! The fitness center has tried to recruit members from around the region and from neighboring communities. Take a tour of the Glenmont Planet Fitness between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. and you’ll see where the majority of locals are going to get themselves in shape! It’s not the Ravena fitness center, you’ll see that! Ravena and the surrounding area can’t compete and aren’t competing! The Ravena fitness center was a very, very bad move and it’s now out there, straight from Ravena officials’ mouths.

turkey talkBravo for Ravena Mayor Bill “Moose” Misuraca who put it very clearly: “Is it morally or financially responsible for 100% of the taxpayers to support less than 3% of the population who use this [the Ravena Health and Fitness Center]?  Mayor Misuraca goes on to confirm, “Right now this gym is hemorrhaging over $6,000 a month. We can not make payroll.” And Misuraca goes even further by confirming what we’ve been saying for almost 2 years: “It’s a burden to taxpayers and…villages and towns should not be in the business of being in business.” We agree 200%, Mr Mayor!

Nancy Warner’s apparently thrown in the towel, and at the same time has thrown her bosom girlfriend, Cathy Deluca…

Annette Demitraszek and Kris Biernacki may be on the hot seat soon for their conspiracies with Nancy Warner.

But we didn’t know! Yes you did!

Well, there may be justice in the air in Ravena. Maybe the time has come where the crooks are going to have to eat their own feces and get their walking papers. The rats eventually jump ship. Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, Cathy Deluca‘s partner, when he read the writing on the wall (the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs picked up that piece of garbage). Deluca’s buddy, former Coeymans police chief, Gregory “Dumplington” Darlington, abandoned his post and deserted his department and the community (destination: Albany DA David Soares’ office?). Nancy Warner’s apparently thrown in the towel, and at the same time has thrown her bosom girlfriend, Cathy Deluca in as well. Annette Demitraszek, kissing Warners broad butt as usual, adds her two cents. (But where are Demitraszek and Biernacki going to hide when they are charged with obstruction of justice and accessory after the fact, when they’re named in civil and criminal lawsuits in preparation as we write? Nancy Warner gonna take the bullet for ya, Demitraszek? How about for you, Biernacki? Bob Freeman’s going to deny he told you anything?)  And the Ravena village board has finally woken up. To paraphrase Cathy Deluca‘s statement made to a visitor at the Ravena Health and Fitness Center open house, before it even opened, “Time to go! You’re not welcome here!” Well Cathy, looks like what goes around comes around. Time to go, Cathy, and don’t let the slamming door jiggle your cellulite on your waddle out!

(And maybe the new Coeymans police chief, Peter J. McKenna, will be waiting outside with a warrant for your arrest for your lies to law enforcement and obstruction of justice! No more insiders at Coeymanazi p.d. to cover your ass, Cathy. Your bulbous butt is grass—Biatch!)

Coeymans Has a New Police Chief: Peter J. McKenna

After former Coeymans police chief Gregory “Dumplington” Darlington jumped ship and abandoned his staff, the Coeymans police department, and the Ravena-Coeymans community, the Coeymans town board has worked hard to downsize the Coeymanazi police department. The Coeymans town board, at its regular meeting on Monday, October 27, named Coeymans police officer Peter J. McKenna to replace DoDo Dumplington.

A Very Conditional Congrtulations go to Chief Peter J. McKenna and to the Coeymans Town Board

A Very Conditional Congratulations! goes to
Coeymans Police Chief
Peter J. McKenna

and to the Coeymans Town Board

An Opportunity to Revitalize and for a Complete Makeover

Chief Peter J. McKenna

Chief Peter J. McKenna

Police Chief Peter J. McKenna can use this opportunity to be a hero, to shine, to revitalize the community’s faith and trust of law enforcement or he can continue in the same filthy rut as his predecessor. We hope he’ll take a more positive and honorable heading for as long as he has a department to run.

Defund to Eliminate

Defund to Eliminate

We say “conditional” because we still urge the town of Coeymans to eliminate the Coeymans police department in its entirety but we do understand that it can’t be done overnight. The strategy of defunding the Coeymans police department, and gradually forcing the derelict or dirty cops (read our article: More Coeymans Police Misconduct: We Want Answers!; BAM! Blonde Bimbo Coeymanazi Strikes Again: This Time a State Agency Car) or the more ambitious law enforcement officers to resign, or at least get them out of our schools, and to seek more lucrative, rewarding employment with a real department is a good one, and it seems to be working: several more Coeymans police department employees have resigned this week.

Actually, with the appointment of Chief McKenna, the Coeymans town board has made a second positive step: they’ve appointed McKenna at a salary of almost half the money that rat-king Gregory Darlington was sucking up in addition to benefits and all he could hoard of the Coeymans treasury. That’s not to say that McKenna is not worth Gregory Darlington’s salary and more. McKenna is a professional law enforcement officer with prior service with the Albany Police Department and reached the level of professional detective (not the Coeymans p.d. dork detective variety fathered by that retard Dudlington).

P. David Soares

P. David Soares
Will he hire dolt Dumplington?

Chief McKenna, like most of the Coeymans police department, doesn’t come to us without some historical baggage. Yes, he had problems with the Albany Police Department. Yes he had some conflicts with Albany County’s pilfering, racist, womanizing district attorney, P. David Soares. But he has connections with law enforcement and that’s a good thing. He has conflicts with Soares and that’s a good thing. Unlike dolt Darlington, Chief McKenna may be able to conduct his law enforcement activities on the straight and narrow, not sucking up to a corrupt and incompetent district attorney. Unlike Darlington, Chief McKenna doesn’t have the corrupt concerns about getting a job next to his wife (Dumpling Darlington’s dumpy dumplin’ Leah Darlington works as a secretary/clerk for Soares). Chief McKenna has been patrolling Ravena-Coeymans for a couple of years not and, despite his past, McKenna has earned the reputation of being fair and a generally good cop.

Albany County Enhanced 911 and Elimination of the Coeymans Dispatchers. There may be a hidden benefit to appointing a veteran and well-informed cop with plenty of city experience. Chief McKenna most probably knows a great deal about the Albany County 911 system and can be a valuable source of information and a consultant to the Coeymans town board when considering trimming the Coeymans budget of several hundreds of thousands of dollars by eliminating the redundant dispatchers. (Click here to read our article:
Dispatchers Distribute Misleading Flyer! Lies in Print…AGAIN!)

What we’d like to see Chief McKenna tackle as part of his community outreach efforts (and he will have community outreach, of that we are certain) is this: Under Darlington’s incompetent bastardizing of the Coeymans police department obstruction of justice was rampant, meprision of felony (18 U.S. Code § 4 – Misprision of felony*) was a day-to-day occurrence. Having worked in the Coeymans police department for several years under Darlington’s oppression, Chief McKenna knows all about the obstruction of justice and meprision of felony (especially the obstruction of justice and accessory after the fact in the Cathy Deluca case and concealment by “Dirty Hands” Jerry Deluca, Gregory Darlington and Jason Albert!) that went on in the Coeymans police department and it’s now time to come clean, squeaky clean, and prove that he, Peter J. McKenna, is worthy of the chief’s badge and worthy of this community’s trust. (Maybe Chief McKenna can manage to uniformly, nondiscriminatingly enforce the law and truly to “serve and protect” this community. See our articles: Coeymans: Illegal “Work Zone” Signs and Unlawful Threat of Fines?Criminal Obstruction of Justice & Official Misconduct: Gregory Darlington, Coeymans PDWhat you hear or see, or know can land you in Jail! 18 USC § 4 – Misprision of Felony; Raped by the Coeymans Police Department!)

*Misprision of felony: Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

Cathy Deluca Misdemeanor False Statement

Cathy Deluca
Misdemeanor False Statement

There are dozens, literally dozens, of pending complaint investigations and pending lawsuits against the Coeymans police department and it’s in Chief McKenna’s interest to start on the right foot. One way to do this is to take the time, and it will be a lot of time at first, to manage the complaints and lawsuits crisis in Coeymans. Chief McKenna has to reach out to the aggrieved, defuse the situation, pledge his good will, ensure that the cases are properly investigated and the results communicated to the aggrieved parties, ensure that justice is done by getting rid of the culprits and, if necessary, ensuring that they are prosecuted. There are many in the community who can prove to be valuable allies to Chief McKenna and even to the Coeymans town board if, and only if, Chief McKenna has integrity, is honest with us, and proves he’s fair and is interested in seeing justice done. Ditto for the Coeymans town board. (Read our article: Village of Ravena, Town of Coeymans Police Department Served with Notices of ClaimCriminal Complaint: Catherine M. Deluca a.k.a. Cathy Deluca, Claude A. Wheeles, Ravena Health and Fitness Center; Why Ravena Village Hall Thumbs Their Noses at the Pubic Officers Law…)

Harold “Hal” Warner = Corrupt Judge = Corrupt Justice

Noting the presence of members of the Ravena liars-lair, especially Harold “Hal” Warner, another Albany Cop who got taken off the street for his civil rights abuses, and then was elected to be a village of Ravena justice, a judge of all things! His presence and the fact that he was seen to be consulting with Chief McKenna could give rise to charges of violation of the Judicial Code of Conduct against Warner. What business does a sitting village justice have having secret discussions with the newly appointed town police chief, we have to ask. But Warner, if he’s stupid enough to run for office again, will be embarrassed by a total defeat! We’ll work hard to see that happen. (See our article on the Warners of Ravena: The Warners: A Family Tradition of Misconduct) As for the other self-interested crooks who were conspicuously sitting on pins and needles and felt that they had to be present at the meeting just to calm their nerves, we know who you are and we’re watching together with quite a few other residents. Keep out of the way. You’ve on notice!

(Special note to Dawn LaMountain: Better keep your mouth shut and get a lawyer—maybe your ex-boss Dumplington, can get his wife Leah to sweet-talk Soares into defending you, or at least not to prosecute you—, you may need one soon. Your chubby chicken should also be looking for a job pretty soon, too!) (Read our article Why?: Dispatchers Distribute Misleading Flyer! Lies in Print…AGAIN!)

So, Coeymans, Chief McKenna, you both have our “conditional” Congratulations! “Conditional” because you’re going to be watched like a hawk, we’ll have our ears to the ground and in the community. These next couple of months will either make or break both of you, Coeymans town board and Peter J. McKenna. You both have a lot of healing to do and a lot of trust to mend.

Dispatchers Distribute Misleading Flyer! Lies in Print…AGAIN!


Elections are coming up on November 4th

We have something to share about the local, state and national candidates seeking your votes and it’s important you know what we have to say. Local budgets are in the making and you need to get to village, town and board of education meetings and have your say! Stay tuned in the coming week. You won’t be disappointed!


AFSCME, American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees, the union representing the Coeymans dispatchers has distributed a sloppy liar-flier that is intended to misinform residents, as most unions are prone to do, and can’t even get its numbers straight. If the dispatchers’ union can’t count or get its numbers straight, how can we depend on the dispatchers to get numbers right? But that’s not the real problem. The real problem is that the flyer shoots the dispatchers in the foot because it gives us the solid evidence we need to prove that the dispatchers are the result of corrupt hiring processes in the town of Coeymans town hall. Most of the dispatchers are relatives of employees of the town of Coeymans, the majority being relatives of employees of the police department. Some of them even hold several jobs right in Coeymans town hall!

Here are the mugshots featured on the AFSCME flyer distributed in Coeymans.

Here are the mug shots featured on the AFSCME liar-flier distributed in Coeymans.

As anyone with half-a-brain can clearly see, the heading reads “14 Coeymans residents” but we count only 12 in the mug shots and one of them is blacked out, according to information received from the town of Coeymans, that person was terminated. So that leaves 11 dispatchers. Where are the other three, AFSCME? Please let us know who they are when you find them, won’t you?

(Click this link to read the entire Dispatcher Liar-Flyer Dispatch[1].)

Of the remaining 11, three are almost legitimately fair hires: A. Mueller, S. Leonardo and McMullen. So far we haven’t found that they’re related to anyone in town hall but that’s not yet final. Justin Hotaling may be a relative of the local family, one of whom was Coeymans town supervisor before Flach. It’s hard to believe that anyone in the dispatchers’ office isn’t related to someone in the Coeymans police department. Here’s why:

And it keeps a job opening for your other inbreeders.

And it keeps a job opening for your other inbreeders.

Coeymans dispatcher Brian Dunnegan‘s smiling puss is in the top row. Dunnegan’s nephew (his sister’s son), David Debucco, fourth in from the left, is a dispatcher. Dispatcher David Debucco is the son of Santa “Sandy” Debucco whom you might know as the building inspector for the village of Ravena (p.t. $8,157.00 +) and the town of Coeymans ($11,236 +) but he’s also a full-time employee at the Albany Airport! Sound like a lot of jobs? Does to us but apparently not to the village of Ravena or to the town of Coeymans who have him inspecting buildings. Pretty cozy so far, right?

Tucked in between Brian Dunnegan and his nephew, David Debacco, we have none other than D. Darlington, former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington’s own daughter! Talk about nepotism, getting your family members a job!

In the first row, second to the last, we have Dawn LaMountain ($46,994+ a year, and her husband works for the town of Coeymans making $46,221+)*, confidential secretary to former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington. Dawn LaMountain also moonlights as a Coeymans dispatcher. Our question is this: How does Dawn LaMountain juggle her time to be a “confidential secretary” and a Coeymans dispatcher? Sound fishy? It gets fishier, read on…

Let’s stay with the LaMountains for another minute. Bottom row, third in from the left you see Nicholas “Nick” LaMountain. You’ve already heard about LaMountains chubby kid who put’s the “Mountain” in LaMountain. He’s the one who got a job in the Coeymans police department but can’t pass the physical, despite several tries, because of his weight. No problem! When your mother is “confidential secretary” to the Coeymans police chief, you’re job on the Coeymanazi police force is never at risk. He’s still parading around in his cop costume but has he passed the physical fitness test yet? Your guess is as good as ours. But he’s also a Coeymans dispatcher, like his mom!

The last photo in the top row is Dillon Tyre. His mother works in the town of Coeymans clerk’s office and his father is a cop. Let’s get the whole family a job in Coeymans town hall, why doncha? Maybe good old dad can come in and play Coeymans cop too!

Not much to say about Kyle Kearney except that he’s a teacher at the RCS high school making a hefty chunk of cash with benefits. But Kearney is also a Coeymans dispatcher. Question is, shouldn’t he be preparing his lessons rather than moonlighting. Doesn’t the RCS CSD pay him enough??? By the way, both Kyle Kearney and Brian Dunnegan are on the “rescue squad”. There’s a bizarre sort of incest breeding here so we’ll leave it at that. But you can see how the tentacles just weave in and weave out in Coeymans.

Most of these people are hogging two or three other jobs besides the dispatcher position!

The whole liar-flier is a pile of crapola! As you can see, “14 Coeymans residents” will not be “losing their jobs” at all! If there are even 14 dispatchers, the liar-flier doesn’t document that claim. The flyer makes it sound like these jokers will be out on the street and starving if the dispatcher positions are eliminated, which is not the case at all. Most of these people are hogging two or three other jobs besides the dispatcher position! The ones who might not have two or three other so-called jobs (we’re thinking now of maybe A. Mueller only) certainly will not be out on the street. Think of the unemployed in this community who might be scrounging for an income and these greedy bastards crying misery when they’re sucking up income all over the place! Greedy bastards, that’s the only description that fits them!

They’re all INSIDERS. The jobs weren’t offered to Coeymans residents but were snatched up by insiders, or the INSIDERS made sure their own kids got the jobs. Right? Look at former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington: Darlington didn’t even look outside his own family to find a hireling; he plopped his own daughter in the position! And no one in Coeymans town hall made a peep! You weren’t nor was your kid good enough to get the job, not even to apply, but now you’re good enough to save their asses. No way, José!


We currently have a Republican majority on both the village of Ravena board, under mayor William “Moose” Misuraca, and the town of Coeymans, under town supervisor Stephen Flach, but neither Ravena nor Coeymans seems to get anything productive done. All they seem to do is invite scandal and muck-ups one after the other. Why is that Mr Misuraca, Mr Flach? You have the majorities and the votes on your boards, why don’t you do something other than lower the quality of life in our communities, spending more and more money on duplicated services.


They do what they do best: Lie and Spread Misinformation and Anxiety. The FEAR AGENDA to keep their ill-gotten jobs!

They do what they do best:
Lie and Spread Misinformation and Anxiety.

The FEAR AGENDA to keep their ill-gotten jobs!

The Dispatcher liar-flier spreads more misinformation: “This will not save the town money—it will just shift the expense from one place to another.” That’s a brown faced lie! But it’s nothing new for Coeymans. That’s how they keep it all in the family.

Eliminate the Coeymans Dispatchers Incest Club and the Coeymans police department at the same time! They’re both duplicating services that we’re already paying for, and they’re doing a lousy job of it! Here’s why:

As you may already know, the New York State Police and the Albany County Sheriff’s deputies patrol the town of Coeymans. The town of Coeymans is also covered by a sophisticated emergency response system operated by the County of Albany and paid for, like the New York State Police and the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, with your tax dollars. The NYSP and the Albany County Sheriff’s Department are highly trained professionals and have the latest in equipment and resources. The Albany County 911 system is also highly effective and has the latest equipment and highly trained employees. Compare that with the Coeymans police department and its dispatchers, both of which are duplications of service we already receive. (click here to learn about Enhanced 911.)

But here’s the real problem: the Coeymans police are second or third-rate. The dispatchers are second tier and are working with ancient equipment that we really can’t afford to replace. But what we can do is eliminate both the Coeymans police department and the dispatchers and, if they’re needed, really needed, let the state and county agencies hire them on and train and equip them. Pay only once as we see it.

9-1-1-enhanced
[PSAP = public-safety answering point, sometimes called “public-safety accesspoint”]

Say you place a 911 call for emergency assistance. That call will go to a 911 center, usually Albany County, it then is broadcast to first responders. (Click here to learn how it works: How Location Tracking Works) Only Albany County has the paramedics fly car for immediate paramedical assistance. EMTs may be available locally, but let’s get back to the chain of notification for a moment. Albany immediately  notifies the available emergency response teams, including Coeymans. Or you can call 756-2059 (Coeymans dispatch) and hope for the best, which may not turn out to be the best or the smartest thing you could do in an emergency. But if you call 756-2059 you’re not really gaining anything because they’d be automatically notified by Albany or one of the other 911 centers together with a number of other available response teams. Call 756-2059 and you are notifying only Coeymans who will have to request assistance from other response teams anyway, if they can’t handle the case themselves.

Problem is that when you notify just the Coeymans dispatchers that’s likely what you’ll get. But here’s the problem: Coeymans will have to then broadcast the call to locals who may or may not be available immediately, depending on where they are and the time of day. Now what? Then they have to get to their equipment and then to the scene. Now do you have an idea of response times? Call 911 and everybody available knows and can be on the way. Call 756-2059 and you get Coeymans dispatch etc. etc. You’re dead already!

Here’s another tidbit for you: Did you know that the town of Coeymans pays the village of Ravena or a Ravena “organization” — as you probably expect, this is as clear as mud and no one in office seems to know all of the facts at the time of this writing — more than $144, 960 for ambulance services? That’s because there’s an agreement between Ravena and Coeymans to do this. And did you know that even though we pay Ravena more than $144,000, you will still get soft-billed for the call and transport? Yeah! Like paying twice? But there’s another question: Where is the money going that you get billed and pay for the service? That’s apparently in addition to the $144,960 Ravena’s already getting. We’d be very grateful for any clarification anyone can provide on this particular issue. That’s a good question to ask Ms Virginia Pearson of the Ravena Rescue Squad.

So there you have the truth. Don’t believe the lies being stuffed down your throats that you’ll all be dead by morning if the dispatchers are eliminated. Don’t believe the fairy-tale that you’ll be overtaken by druggies and burglars if the Coeymans police are eliminated. You are safe and you are protected by real professionals who can respond in a fraction of the time and with better overall training and resources and you won’t be paying twice to provide everybody in Coeymans town hall who has a kid with a cushy job. Coeymans town hall should not continue to be a money pit family business. It’s time to tell the Coeymans town board to clean up its pig sty.

Call Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach and tell him you did the math and the Coeymans Dispatchers and the Coeymans Police Department have to go! Cut off their funding and redirect the money to more essential services!

Don’t let the family business tell you how to spend your tax money!

Next Coeymans Town Board Meeting
Monday, October 27, 2014, 07:00 pm

Eliminate the Coeymans Dispatcher Pool and the Coeymans Police Department!

And for those of you who might think this is a purely local issue, we’d like you to visit another very widely read blog, New York Citizen One, and a very revealing article on of all places, the town of Coeymans, entitled Citizens Of Coeymans Must Unite (Click on that link to read the article.) That blog seems to have gotten it right and recommends a general clean-up in Coeymans. Read it and weep…or do something about it and clean things up! (The article also contains some good bits on Albany County DA David Soares, former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington’s wife, Leah Darlington, and more!)

UPDATE: The Ravena Health and Fitness Center, Cathy Deluca’s playpen, is a couple of steps closer to being eliminated. The village of Ravena council has already started deliberations on eliminating that money pit. So Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca were burning up the email circuits and telephone lines trying to get their friends to show up to demand that the Ravena Health and Fitness Center stay open. But they could only muster up some 20 supporters. Do the math: even if those 20 people paid full dues and spent at least a couple of bucks on drinks during the year, that would likely fall short of a total of $300, tops. So twenty people wanting the place to stay open would mean a total of maximum $6000 income in an entire  year. But let’s be fair and say another 20 friends of Warner and Deluca wanted to be there at the meeting but couldn’t get there (they were probably already at Planet Fitness). That would make a grand total of double those who did make it or 40 people. Again let’s do the math: $300 a year, maximum, times 40 members gives us $12,000 total income for the RHFC. That’s not even half Cathy Deluca’s salary as manager (She’s making more than $35,000 plus benefits!). And she’s had almost 2 full years to make the place work and has failed (like she did twice before). And it doesn’t even come close to the more than $105,000 budgeted to keep that money pit’s doors open. The good news is that the village of Ravena is finally getting smart and may actually do the right thing! The question is: Will they have the balls to actually do more than talk about it?

Compare spending at least $240.00 a year for a membership at the Ravena Health and Fitness Center when you can get Planet Fitness not 15 minutes away for $10.00 a month with all of the newest equipment, professional training, separate changing rooms, showers, all the comforts. Do the math: that’s about $120 for Planet Fitness or HALF what you’d spend to work out in a pig pen, the Ravena Heaps and Fatness Center! For $20 a month you can use any Planet Fitness in the country—at the time of this writing there are more than 800—. Again, do the math. Don’t you think we can spend the $105,000 dollars on something better than a place for a bottle-blond Bimbo to squat? We do!

Call Ravena Mayor William “Moose” Misuraca and tell him you did the math and the Ravena Health and Fitness Center has to go! Don’t let 20 morons tell you how to spend your tax money!

Sean Eldridge: Does he even know how to represent the 99%?

No Politician is the Perfect Pick. In fact, every politician is an imperfect pick but some politicians are more imperfect than others. When they forget their imperfection they become incompetent and dangerous.

Sean Eldridge: Can he really represent the 99%?

Is This the Altrnative? Lord Help Us!The 'White Obama" Sean Eldridge with his hubby Chris Hughes and New York state Senator Cecilia Tkaczyk The [Disgusted] Editor,/big>

Is This the Altrnative?
Lord Help Us!

The ‘Pink Obama” Sean Eldridge with his hubby Chris Hughes and New York state Senator Cecilia Tkaczyk

Question is really, can Sean Eldridge even acknowledge we’re here, let alone understand our needs. Are his ears attuned to voices so different from ours that he is deaf to the 99%? In fact, isn’t Sean Eldridge a bit overly arrogant to think that with his disconnection from the rest of us not only in job experience, in life experience, in moral values that he can possibly represent but a small part of this constituency? Do we need another arrogant deaf politician in Washington? Our answer is NO! Sean Eldridge is so vastly different from us that he cannot possible appreciate who we are and what we need.

First of all, he and his “hubby“, Chris Hughes (of FaceBook bucks), are multimillionaires, members of the exclusive 1% club. They live in different worlds than we do. They inhabit planets that revolve around different suns, different centers, than ours does.

In fact, both Eldridge and Hughes should be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail for having co-created that monster addiction, FaceBook, that has our dimwit young people and many half-witted adults glued to their electronic devices, oblivious to the world around them, while they squander their lives on ASOCIAL media, pouring out their impoverished emotions and souls into empty cyberspace. You’ll have to agree that Facebook is the farthest thing from “social media” and has created a culture of illiterate zombies. No thanks! Mr Eldridge and Mr Hughes! If that’s your idea of serving America, you might just as well put on an ISIS uniform and just decapitate America!

What is the 1%? Who is the 1%? Read the truth in Forbes Are You Rich Enough? The Terrible Tragedy Of Income Inequality Among The 1%

Secondly, Sean Eldridge and his kind they talk to different people, their own kind, who, like Eldridge and “hubby” Hughes, are members of the same country club, the 1% club, and have different priorities, values, ethics, morals, and very few needs and many greeds.

Is Cecilia Tkaczyk Eldridge's Fag Hag?

Is Cecilia Tkaczyk Eldridge’s
“Fag Hag”*?

* What in hell is a “fag hag“? Read about it here: Fag Hag.

And speaking of “their own kind” Cecilia Tkaczyk is one of Eldridge’s clubmembers. In the picture we selected above, most of Eldridge and Hughes gender-orientation community would call her a “fag hag” in that picture (she’s posing with Eldridge and “hubbyHughes at the Hudson Valley Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender 2014 Gala where Eldridge spoke) ; that is, a woman who hangs out with gay men. She’s OK with that and—believe it or not—, so are we. Here’s why: she saves us the trouble of wasting any more words on her. One picture is worth a thousand words. She’s telling us in unmistakeable terms who she is, what she is, what she supports, and that she doesn’t deserve to be re-elected. Actually, she allegedly wasn’t elected in the first place but we won’t comment further on that scandalous misuse of the democratic process that put her in single-term office.

For an entertaining discussion of fag hags etc. (Warning: this article can get a bit steamy ;) ), visit Why Do Gay Men Need Fag Hags?

Thirdly, Sean Eldridge’s values, morals and ethics—more accurately we should say his lack of values, morals and ethics—are far different from ours. First of all, how many of this constituency think same-sex marriage is acceptable, even necessary? Isn’t marriage by its very definition a union between a man and a woman, for the purpose of procreation, and then protecting those children and educating them to be good members of the community? But Sean Eldridge believes that marriage as an institution needs to be redefined to fit his chosen lifestyle. How many of us agree with that self-centered point of view? But then, when it’s convenient for him, he uses a loophole in the Defense of Marriage Act, federal legislation he opposes, to avoid full disclosure of his and his “hubby’s” actual financial status, how much they really have! You see, millionaire Eldridge wants to flash that he’s “married” to millionaire Chris Hughes but argues that the Defense of Marriage Act does not recognize same-sex marriages, so in the “eyes” of DOMA, Eldrige and Hughes are not married, not spouses. So Eldridge reasons that he doesn’t have to disclose his and Hughes’ combined income. Sean Eldridge wants his cake and he wants to eat it too. But we’re not invited to the party.

Read more about Eldridge’s hypocricy at DOMA Limits House Candidate Sean Eldridge’s Financial Disclosures

Eldridge and Hughes didn’t get their millions by not supporting corporations and ensuring that their investments pay off. But when corporations “pay off” and their investors become millionaires, somebody else is paying. Guess who that is? Do you think that he’s going to refuse the dividends on his investments because the corporations are screwing the little guy? Do you really believe Eldridge when he says he never took a dime from a corporation? Then where did he and “hubby” Chris Hughes get their millions? From the Easter bunny?

easter bunny money

Sean Eldridge, in his pretty-boy poses with his “hubbyChris Hughes, just oozes phoney! His sugary and equally phoney campaign ads are just as flaky as he is. We don’t need another snowflake in Washington claiming to represent us. We have an Oreo snowflake in the White House now who got there riding the race card and has all but destroyed this country with his lack of experience and total lack of leadership. We don’t need the “Pink Obama“, Sean Eldridge, moving his shaved butt to Washington only to promote his club’s agendas, and making his offensive contribution to plunging this country into deeper distress, anxiety, and moral decline.

Moving-animated-picture-bunny-hopping-easter-eggs-basket

Sean Eldridge is not the Easter Bunny!
Sean Eldridge is a much bigger fake!

Sean Eldridge’s hypocrisy shows through his facials and manicures. He’s as phoney as his cosmetic smile. Voters need to get the failure Barack Hussein “Oreo” Obama out of Washington, and keep the “Pink Obama” from setting up shop in Washington.

The “Pink Obama”, Sean Eldridge, wants us to give his ego a free ride to Washington on our backs and at our expense.

Sean Eldridge is not the Easter Bunny!He's a much bigger fake!

Don’t become a bunch of hopping eggs in Sean Eldridge’s bunny basket!

We’re not saying that any politician is or can be perfect; most politicians are human (at least on one side of the family tree) and thus by their very nature are imperfect. The problem arises when they start to think that they are not imperfect, and forget that some are more imperfect than others. Sean Eldridge is one of those wannabe politicians who forgets his imperfection, who has lost the connection with who he really is, and by doing so is starting to believe his own lies; Sean Eldridge is more imperfect than his opponents.

Don’t Vote for Sean Eldridge or Cecilia Tkaczyk—the Antichrist Duo!

There are better alternatives.

Ravena Health and Fitness Center: Year One = Miserable Failure!!!

Village of Ravena Mayor, Village Council Continue to Do Voo-Doo Management: Ravena Health and Fitness Center Deep is in the RED; Cathy Deluca’s the Only One Smiling on Her Way to the Bank!!!

In late 2012, former Mayor of the Village of Ravena, John T. Bruno (defeated), his hatchet woman Nancy Biscone-Warner, and the morons on the former Village of Ravena village council, Nancy Biscone-Warner, Martin Case (defeated), Rocco Persico (defeated), William “Bill” Bailey, in a behind-closed-doors conspiracy with Cathy Deluca, wife of former disgraced Coeymans cop “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca (now the CEO/Exec. Dir. of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs), decided to purchase  used fitness equipment more than $40,000 in taxpayer dollars  from a Ravena insider, Robert “Bob” Fisk (His son is now operating the new Fisk’s Variety garbage shop on Main Street, Ravena, site of the former Teen Center. Josie Biscone-Bruno of Prudential Real Estate, made the deal with the Teen Center on behalf of Fisk. A real insider operation if there ever was one.). The public was not consulted on that purchase. (See our article, for example, “A Senile, Demented Brain Gives Birth: You Pay Again!“)

Total Income for the RHFC for 2013-2014 Doesn’t Even Cover Cathy Deluca’s Salary!!!!

Cathy Deluca on the way to the bank while Ravena taxpayers look on.

Cathy Deluca on the way to the bank while Ravena taxpayers look on.

Then in 2013, again behind closed doors Bruno, Warner, and Deluca got together to create the Ravena health and Fitness Center in the space previously occupied by the RCS Community Library, and after a scandalous and disgraceful dog-and-pony act, raising the library’s rent for the space more than $700 a month and under threats of eviction, the library’s new home was final finished by Don Persico (cousin of the then sitting Ravena village council member, Rocco Persico), and in May, 2013, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center had its “open house,” and the appointed insider director, Cathy Deluca, managed to open her big mouth and expose the village of Ravena to a potentially very expensive lawsuit. (See our article, “Criminal Complaint: Catherine M. Deluca a.k.a. Cathy Deluca, Claude A. Wheeles, Ravena Health and Fitness Center“)

Later, the gang of five calling itself the Ravena village council, submit incomplete and fraudulent paperwork to get Cathy Deluca a non-competitive civil service classification to be director of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. Cathy Deluca had no qualifications to be director and, by the way, had already mismanaged at least two previous “health clubs” to ruination and failure, including the very health club run by Bob Fisk and the source of the used fitness equipment purchased with taxpayer money but no public inputs. (Read more on this at
Who is “Cathy Deluca”? and “Bruno, Deluca, Warner Squirming to Cover It Up“)

In the 2013-2014 Village of Ravena Budget, the Gang-of-Five approved more than $105,000 of taxpayer money to fund the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, paying Cathy Deluca more than $30,000 a year plus full benefits.

The Village of Ravena village council under mayor William “Moose” Misuraca and his running mates councilmen Joel Coye and Keith Mahler and two leftovers from Bruno’s scandalous quarter century in office, Nancy Biscone-Warner and William “Bill” Bailey, approved the 2014-2015 Village of Ravena Budget, allocating another more than $105,000 to fund the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and, in that same budget, approved a pay-raise of more than $900 for Cathy Deluca.

Misuraca, Coye, Mahler Ran on a Promise of Financial Responsibility, Accountability, Transparency BUT ….

It now is obvious that only the faces have changed. After a really disappointing kick-off of the Centennial celebrations with an embarassing so-called parade that was preceded by an embarrassing watermain break on the parade route (Cathy Deluca chaired the Centennial Committee that organized the parade), we have been provided with documents secured by a resident under the provisions of the New York State Freedom of Information Law, that clearly show that the Ravena Health and Fitness Center MUST GO!

According to the monthly reports prepared by Cathy Deluca and submitted to the Ravena village council, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center is failing badly and hemorrhaging moneyhemorrhaging money right into Cathy Deluca’s pockets. Here are the figures (available to anyone on demand in the Ravena village clerk’s office):

Cathy Deluca and an Ignorant Village Council Hemorrhaging Money

Cathy Deluca and an Ignorant Village Council Hemorrhaging Money

(Editor’s Note:  The figures for May 2014 were not available so in the table above, to be fair, we took the average figures for the previous 11 months and used them for the month of May 2014. This was really very optimistic—and very generous—, considering the drastic decline in membership figures over the period.  Not included in the above figures is $2,040.00 for “Tabata Bootcamp” in March 2014. According to unconfirmed information, an employee of the RHFC is being paid extra to do that class. Although we have attempted to include everything possible in the figures above, the picture is bleak, very bleak.)


Back in July 2013, in our article, “Ravena & Risk – Taking: Is it really the role of municipal government?” we wrote:

“Just to break even, the fitness center would have to attract about 425 – 450 paying members; that means, Ravena and the surrounding area would have to attract at least 425 persons who would be willing to fork over between $250–300 a year to join the fitness center, which pales in comparison to other local chain centers with all the facilities like tanning, certified trainers, fitness programs, ultra – modern equipment, men’s and women’s changing rooms, showers, swimming pools, etc. The Ravena Health and FitnessCenter has none of these but membership is far more expensive than any of the major local clubs. So where are these 425 – 450 members going to come from in Ravena or Coeymans? Answer: They aren’t!”

Now we can write:

we_told_you_so

 In the First Year of Operation Deluca has Attracted less than 3% of Ravena Residents; Total income for the RHFC doesn’t even add up to Deluca’s salary for the period.

The membership numbers in the above table are a very misleading for the months of May 2013−February 2014 because Ms Deluca did not break down the membership figures into 12-month, 6-month, per-visit, etc. but lumped them all together, giving the false impression that people were actually joining. In March and April 2014, Deluca started breaking down the “membership” figures, and it looks like 1 year memberships for Marchtotaled only 97 members  with only 1 new member in March, and in April 2014 the RHFC had a total of only 103 1-year members. (The 11 new members shown in the table for May is our overly-generous manipulation of the statistics to guestimate a number for May, based on the average for the preceding 11 months. Obviousy, 11 is much to high!)  There were 16 six-month members in March and that figure remained unchanged in April 2014. There are several other “categories” of members that go into Deluca’s misleading totals but the bottom line is that in the first year of operation, memberships are dropping and so are revenues. In the entire first year of operation, the Ravena Health and Fitness center has attracted less than 3% of Ravena residents to join. The numbers don’t lie: Out of about 1930 Ravena residents in the age group eligible for membership (18-65 year olds) Deluca, despite her spending on advertising, has been able to attract only about 100 members (some of whom are not Ravena residents). In percent of eligible residents that’s only 5% or 1 out of every 20 eligible residents, who would likely use a fitness club,. That’s pretty paltry performance.

Do the math: It’s costing Ravena $1,000 a year for each of Cathy Deluca’s members who are paying only about $250 a year in membership dues and purchases at the RHFC. Does anyone see a problem here? Obviously, Mr Mayor “Moose” Misuraca doesn’t . Mr Misuraca: What if at the Ravena Halfway House tavern you had to pay $10.00 for every $2.50 your customers spend? How long would you stay in business?

But instead of spending more time trying to make her RHFC playpen work, she’s grabbing other things, like trying to be chairperson of the Ravena Centennial—and screwing that up, too!

In fact, for the entire year of operation the total deposits made by the Ravena Health and Fitness Center are less than what the village is paying Cathy Deluca to mismanage the faclility! Deluca is pulling more than $30,000 plus full benefits; the RHFC brought less than $29,000.00!!! And that doesn’t include other salaries, equipment, operating expenses. The RHFC doesn’t even pay rent or utilities and it’s still losing more than $75,000 of taxpayer money in the first year!!!

ONE GLARING QUESTION YOU ALL SHOULD BE ASKING YOURSELVES: WHY IS THE RAVENA HEALTH AND FITNESS CENTER STILL THERE???

Why is it still there Mr Misuraca, Mr Coye, Mr Mahler, Ms Warner, Mr Bailey?

THE EDITOR

THE EDITOR

Don’t you ever wonder why the Ravena News Herald and the Albany Times Union never seem to pick up on these stories. They sorta get swept under the carpet. Why not ask  Bryan Rowzee, Melanie Lekocevic, Marlene McTique, or the head honchos at the Johnson Newspaper Group, John Johnson or Mark Vinciguerra why they don’t come clean with some investigations and some reporting on these crooks?

Share Our Shock: State Fire Chiefs’ Association Hires Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca!

 For Years Gerald a.k.a. “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca Has Been the Scoundrel of Coeymans and Now The New York State Association of Fire Chiefs Has Hired Deluca to be Their Executive Director and CEO! Is this A Bad Joke, NYSAFC?

WTF!!! Deluca Pulls a fast-one on the Fire Chiefs Association

WTF!!!
Deluca Pulls a fast-one on the Fire Chiefs Association

Jerry Deluca Sure Knows How to Cook a Résumé

For years now, the Ravena-Coeymans community has been witness to Cathy and Jerry Deluca playing fast and easy with the village and the town, lying, cheating, abusing, harassing, intimidating. Cathy Deluca has a mask for every occasion and has been taking the village of Ravena for a ride for years, her most recent scam being the Ravena Health and Fitness Center (soon to go bye-bye), Cathy’s playpen, to the tune of $30,000 a year plus benefits. Dirty-Hands Jerry played dirty cop for years in the Coeymans police department and recently resigned but not before he was able to disgrace everyone associated with the Coeymans police department and do irreparable damage to local residents’ confidence in law enforcement and in the Coeymans police deparment. Deluca is an arch-liar, cheat, and soundrel.

We have been reporting on Deluca’s very suspicious claims of lobbying, consulting, public relations activities while employed full-time with the Coeymans police department, and have raised questions of fraud by Deluca, who recently resigned from the Coeymans police department after claiming to be on the force for 32 years. We questioned that claim because the numbers simply didn’t work out. And then he had all these claims of other employment, including with the NYS Assembly (where no one seems to have heard of him or they won’t admit knowing him), to the ARANY directorship (ARANY is a special interest automotive recycling organization), his questionable contacts with the NYS Department of Environmental Conserviation, and so many other claims that Deluca makes the impression of being capable of being in several places at the same time. Did the town of Coeymans drop the ball when investigationg Deluca?

The Town of Coeymans town board didn’t seem to do any checks on Deluca. His buddy and pal, Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington didn’t seem interested in doing any checks on Deluca’s claims, either. Why did Deluca get away with his frauds?

What’s worse, now that the fat rat has jumped ship in Coeymans he seems to have bamboozled the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs, too! In an announcement appearing on the Association’s website we found old Dirty-Hands Jerry learing with a self-satisfied grin (see photo above) as if saying, “Did it again! Fooled the stupid bastards at NYSAFC, too!” (Read the entire farce at “NYSAFC Appoints New Executive Director & CEO” (March 24, 2014).

The New York State Association of Fire Chiefs (NYSAFC), is the statewide association representing career and volunteer fire chiefs throughout New York. In the online artile announcing the appointment, the NYSAFC writes:

DeLuca has an extensive history of public and emergency service as well as being a highly qualified association manager. He has previously worked as executive director of the Automotive Recyclers Association of New York and as the director of government affairs for the New York State Motor Truck Association
DeLuca has a long history with the fire service. He currently is a deputy county fire coordinator in Albany County and was previously 1st assistant chief of the Ravena Fire Department. DeLuca also served as a part-time police investigator and public information officer for the Town of Coeymans Police Department.

Does anyone in the Ravena-Coeymans recognize any truth in that description of old Dirty-Hands Jerry? We certaingly don’t.

The New York State Association of Fire Chiefs, by publishing such garbage, have wittingly or unwittingly labeled themselves as the winners of the 2014 Dumbass Award, hands down. The New York State Association of Fire Chiefs selection committee have done the NYSAFC a gross disservice and an unpardonable injustice by labeling it as a haven for the likes of Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca. They’ve also identified themselfs as being incompetent in hiring/appointing capable individuals with any semblance of honor, honesty, or integrity—character features absolutely absent in Dirty-Hands Jerry. The NYSAFC has also identified itself as pitiably ignorant or indifferent to the image it has cast of itself, to the great dishonor and discredit of its membership, by associating itself at all with the likes of Dirty-Hands Jerry. It’s absolutely scandalous that any credible organization should associate itself with the person and the legacy of Gerald Delcuca, and even worse to put him in a position of such visibility as Executive Director/CEO!

Doesn’t the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs do Résumé Checks or Background Inquiries????

Gerald "Dirty-Hands Jerry" Deluca's Résumé Fraud

Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca’s Résumé
Fraud

The NYSAFC announcement says that Dirty-Hands Jerry was a “highly qualified association manager,” that Deluca was “executive director of the Automotive Recyclers Association of New York” and that Deluca “a part-time police investigator“. That’s not everything Deluca claims to be or to have done but it does suffice to raise quite a number of questions about Deluca’s fraudulent claims. If he was, aa the announcement claims, a “part-time police investigator” how is it that the newspapers of the Johnson Newspaper Group touted him as having 32 years on the Coeymans police force, falsely giving the impression he was full-time for 32 years! So, did Deluca resign/retire on a part-timer’s pension? And if he was part time on the Coeymans police force, and was doing all those other things he claims to have done, he must have been full-time or part-time employed somewhere else. Where might that have been? And where and how did Deluca become “a highly qualified association manager?” If he’s such a hotshot association manager and executive director, why in hell was he working part-time as a police investigator for a measly $30k a year?!? If he’s so experienced, highly qualified, and so in demand, why wasn’t he making 4 or 5-times that amount or more? Something’s fishy here…it stinks like Deluca, in fact. Just like Jerry Deluca’s wife, Cathy Deluca, closed at least two fitness centers and a public relations office (or so she claims) but has no qualifications whatsoever, and weasles her way into becoming director of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, which is failing, losing tons of taxpayer money, and will likely be closed soon! That’s the Deluca fraud: lies. All lies!

Even for argument’s sake, if what the NYSAFC writes about Deluca is true and what the local news media writes is mistaken and Delcua was in fact a “part-time police investigator” he must have had another job somewhere, even if it was only part-time. But where, Jerry, might that have been? And what was that other job? Did it create a conflict of interest with your police department activiites? Did you misuse your position with the Coeymans police to further your other positions, if any? Quite a few reports that you did in fact abuse your access to privileged police department information sources to intimidate residents and further your interests. The Town of Coeymans is going to have to explain your claim of 32 years on the Coeymans police force and we’re going to call the Civil Service Department to task to verify your entitlement to a pension. Maybe NYSAFC should be more diligent in it’s checking. Maybe NYSAFC members should demand more due diligence from their organization’s aministrative staff. Or does the NYSAFC hire Executive Directors/CEOs with only questionable part-time employment. But that still doesn’t explain some of the wild claims made in the NYSAFC announcement, does it?

If the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs Swallowed Deluca’s Story Either They’re Just as Crooked or Dumb as Dirt!

It’s obvious that the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs failed to do a résumé or background check on Dirty-Hands Jerry or they would have discovered the many complaints made against him for everything from misdemeanor harassment of women, intimidation, obstruction of justice, sundry lies, abuse of public office, corruption. We wonder what the membership of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs will make of their new Executive Director/CEO when they read this blog and the many articles on Dirty-Hands Jerry and his scandalous conduct here at home.

O.K. This is a bad joke. Right? NYS Association of Fire Chiefs? You Really Didn’t Fall for Old Dirty-Hands Jerry’s Lies and Frauds, Did You?

 And what’s the Town of Coeymans town board doing about the outstanding complaints and Notices of Claim filed against Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca and his partner-in-crime, Cathy Deluca? Or are the outstanding complaints against him and the Coeymans police department going to disappear like they’ve done in the past? It seems the criminals get to go Scott free in the Town of Coeymans, and most of them find a home in the Coeymans police department, later to be welcomed with open arms by the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs!!!

Residents, citizens, voters WAKE UP! Write to the NYSAFC and demand that they dump Deluca. Call lthe Town of Coeymans town board  to task and demand that the criminals in the Coeymans police department, especially Deluca’s accomplice in obstruction of justice, Gregory Darlington, be disciplined. Support the civic drive to eliminate the Coeymans police department.

NYSAFC: You Made A Big Mistake!  Investigate Deluca, then Terminate Him!!!
