Can This Be True? Let’s Investigate! The Latest in Child Abuse at RCS…

We’ve Just Received Another Report on Child Abuse at the RCS High School



The Pattern of Abuse and Retaliation Continues at the RCS High School. As if the Continuing Epidemic of Unrelenting Bullying Isn’t Enough, Bully Teachers, Administrators, Ineffectual Principals, A Totally Useless Superintendent, and Now the Bottom-Feeders are Joining in the Orgy of Child Abuse at RCS!

An abuse of trust!

The report is that a young student was abandoned at the RCS high school yesterday and refused transportation home. because he didn’t have a bus pass.  The student is a regular, normal, well-behaved student at the high school, travels on the bus daily, and his parents are community leaders. The busdriver and the dispatcher knew the kid had a legitimate right to be transported home. Is this the only way the corrupt and perverse teachers, administrators and support persons in the RCS school district can make a point: take it out on the kids?!?

The student’s mother had to go and get him. When the student’s mother called the bus garage to find out about the so-called bus pass requirement, a lower level employee, Darcy Hunter, a transportation dispatcher, was rude and talked over the mother when she called to find out what happened.

We’ve also received an unconfirmed report that the school recently (this week) also forced a special ed student to walk home from school. According to the report, the school couldn’t figure out what bus he was supposed to be on! The poor kid was so confused that he walked home! Can you imagine a special ed kid walking home on US Rt 9W? Doesn’t the busdriver or the aide have the brains to help the kid or to contact the school office if there’s a question? What are the taxpayers of this distict paying for and getting for their school tax dollars??? Answer: Abuse and more abuse. And the district’s children are being put at risk!

But if the Board of Education tries to do anything about it like launch an investigation, make inquiries, inaugurate policy and procedure…Guess what? The Coeymanazis are right there to stonewall and are all over them! But they continue the mantra, “It’s for the kids!” Go figure!

Is this how you treat the trust parents place in you to protect the welfare of their children? Is this your idea of serving the kids? Is this what “It’s for the kids!” means to you perverts?

We demand that Jennifer Houck, RCS Transportation Director, Hunter’s boss, investigate immediately and take disciplinary action against the bus driver and especially Darcy Hunter. Scandalous! Shameful! Putting a child at risk and under such stress!  Check into it, parents!!! Your child will be next!

Here we have a school district with a RCS Board of Education that is trying to set things right and is ambushed at every turn by groups calling themselves, strangely enough, Friends of RCS and More, and a RCS Sports Association that acts like its a part of the distict athletics department, but is an outside organization that operates with some very strange notions of accountability and paperwork. The antagonists are constantly waving the banner, “It’s for the kids!” While bullying continues at the school, junior high-school students are attempting to commit suicide at the school, and school buses are refusing to transport students home, abandoning them at the school! To add insult to injury, parents have to be verbally abused and disrespected by the low-lifes that are being paid with public funds!

What is going on with these crazies?
If anyone has any more information on this crime,
we want to know about it!

Shouldn’t your Albany County District Attorney, The New York State Education Department, the New York State Attorney General, BOCES be Investigating these Incidents? Where are they?

We Make You
Perverts Public Enemies!

And Chicken Little Cried: “The Sky Is Falling!”

Cathy Deluca Is Going Ballistic on FaceBook and Her Mindless Dumb Clucks are Clucking In Agreement:
“Oh, My! They’re Going Legal On Us! How Dare They!”

Cathy Deluca and the
FaceBook Tubbies

Are in an Uproar!

Cathy Deluca and her FaceBook Tubbies have been in an uproar over the RCS Board of Education’s resolution to require everyone operating on school property to be accountable and to obey the law. Cathy is outraged! What? Obey the law?!? What? Be accountable?!?

Bravo, “Fabulous Five!” Make Policy Now! Clean House Now!
It’s For the Kids!

Cathy Deluca’s on the War Path!

Well someone said they saw Major Cluck a.k.a. Cathy Deluca on Main Street in Ravena, New York, and she was dressed for the fight! You GO! girl!

And all the commotion is about the RCS board of education proposing a resolution that requires anyone doing business on school property to do it legally. We realize that’s something really new and revolutionary in the RCS district but it had to come sooner or later.

Here’s the text of the resolution that has Cathy Deluca’s feathers in a tizzy: 

Cathy DeLuca
Here is the latest stunt from our “Fab Five” on the RCS BOE. Their new policy

2.13 BE IT RESOLVED that the Board hereby directs the Superintendent of Schools to implement the following procedures with respect to organizations that may lawfully use school district facilities for fund raising activities:
Prior to approving a use the not-for-profit organization must present the Superintendent with written documentation regarding the fee schedule for entrance fees, raffle prices and or goods to be sold on the school district premises; An estimate of the amount of proceeds must be presented to the Superintendent with written evidence of the actual cost of the goods or services that will be paid out of the gross fees and/or sales; The amount of money estimated to be gifted to a general educational or general charitable entity shall be set forth in writing, detailing how the monies will be paid over to such entity; The accounting of the gross sales shall be conducted in the presence of a school district official or employee; No use application shall be granted where the conditions set forth above have not been met, except for the accounting of the gross sales process that will be conducted at the end of the use period.

PLEASE NOTE: they are trying to not only control “who” can raise funds for the school but also “where” the funds are applied. They are UNBELIEVABLE!

Yes, Cathy, to the mind of a dumb cluck it probably is “UNBELIEVABLE!” It’s unbelievable that you’ll finally have to do things legally. But you can change, you’ve done it so many times before. When I listen to you I really believe that creatures the size of a dinosaur can actually live with a brain the size of a peanut. You’re living proof!

But Deluca is not the only dumb cluck in town, listen to Kathleen Ryan Gill’s come-back:

” This school board is more than ridiculous. They are so filled with self importance that they forget who they serve; the kids. It is more important to them to continue bickering and nitpicking and demean others that even a soda deposit bottle return needs to be regulated. My grandchildren attend Ravena schools and I am outraged by the negativity the school board is creating. I guess those running the soda bottle blitz were going to book a cruise with the money and not give it back to the kids? Those running the blitz are parents of students attending RCS. They PAY TAXES for their children to attend there. I think their paying school taxes makes them partners of the school and therefore, if they are running a not for profit fundraiser FOR THE SCHOOL, the school would be obliged to help them in order to help THEMSELVES. What egotistical idiots would bite the hand that feeds them? RCS school board, that’s who. By the way, I will take this time to thank the wonderful teachers who have given so much to my grandchildren in spite of the RCS leadership. Hurt my children and grandchildren and you will awaken momma bears who will not stand by and take it.”

I Think I’ve Been Insulted!

I guess if your name is Cathy or Kathy you must be sharing the same bird brain! Seems to me, Kathleen Ryan Gill, that the only “kids” you’ve served have been honey-roasted! The normally functioning intellect will not need me to point out the absolute idiocy of Kathleen Ryan Gill’s published stupidity. But I will…Gill seems to think that it’s  the school board who is creating “negativity” and that the “bickering and nitpicking” is from the “school board.” Well, when Kathleen Ryan Gill comes out of her senile dementia episodes and her drug-induced coma, she might actually realize that the board has been the model of cooperation and consensus and that the “bickering and nitpicking” has been coming from the Deluca FaceBook Teletubby bunch, who have done nothing but bellyache and point their fingers, and ambush the board at every turn, that is, when they’re not on Twinkie binges.

The Clucks Club
(How they work)

Other charter members of the Clucks Club: Cathy DeLuca (Chief Cluck), Jeanette Smith Borger, Tracey Traver, Mike Varney, Moose Misuraca (smh), don’t miss a beat in clucking idiotic opinions and misguided advice. Not one of them knows what she or he is talking about. It’s reads like a lonely hearts club, dear Abby mutation. It reeks of self-loathing and myopia! These people have a serious case of unrecovered children of dysfunctional families or serious co-dependence.

Cathy Deluca and her lackies, her clucks, function out of hate and envy, and apparently self-loathing. Nothing the present board of education majority would or could ever do would please them because the Coeymanazi Teletubbettes are a deeply unhappy, unfulfilled mob. The Delucas and their Coeymanazis are so envious and sour-grapes, they’ve lost so many times, they’re known as the Coeymans Losers Club, that they are blinded by their envy. Only misfits would join with them.

Kathleen Ryan Gill apparently comes from some still unmapped area of rural “Appalachia” that hasn’t yet heard that there are laws that regulate who operates what on school property. And Yes! Since about 1912, the government has been very interested in how people make money and what’s done with it. Maybe Kathleen Ryan Gill has never paid any income or sales taxes or never filled out a tax form. But that’s OK. We don’t think the RCS Sports Association or Cathy Deluca ever has, either. And they both claim to have some sense of business…Coeymanazi business. Crooks!

But the best of Kathleen Ryan Gill comes at the closing. GRRR! Momma Bears loose! Gimme a break! Grow up grandma! You’re starting to really scare me and I hope your neighbors know about you…do you get out much?

Momma Bear Scarwee!

And then there’s Brenda Biance Pommakoy, obviously a Teletubby of few words, who writes in response to grandma Ryan-Gill: “So sad what the district has resorted to!” Yes, it is sad, Brenda. So sad that the privilege of free speech can be used so frequently by the Deluca Teletubbies only to publish their despicable ignorance, and to continue to foster the apparently predominant impression, so frequently published in the Times Useless, that the people of this RCS district are a bunch of ignorant, illiterate, hypocritical cannibals.

Somebody say “Fitness Center?”
An RCS Beauty Ready to Pump Iron

Cathy Deluca has been involved in so many shadey deals in this community that the only one who’s probably shadier is her partner, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca. If they aren’t getting the kudos for their corrupt practices then they’ll lynch anyone who tries to do good. Deluca’s behind the idiotic Bruno corruption that’s insanely trying to put a fitness center in the library space. And what’s worse, she tries to justify the idea on her FaceBook page. She stands to benefit (she’s supposed to manage the fitness center, you know), so screw the library! Well, looking at most of the residents they sure do need a fitness center more than a library: to drop a couple twinky tons. And judging by what I read in some of those FaceBook comments, they don’t need a library, they wouldn’t know what to do with a book. Maybe Bruno’s not so senile as I thought.

I Must Be Losin’ It!

Don’t Be Stupid: Eliminate the Coeymans Police Department!

News Flash: We’ve received a report that a male student at the RCS Junior High School attempted suicide today, and tried to hang himself. The information we received is that he was bullied. Another student, the son of the harassed busdriver who was fired in retaliation for filing a complaint against a pervert RCS high-school athletics coach, is now being harassed and bullied at the RCS high-school and the lunch room attendants (they’re paid $25.00 an hour!) are standing by doing nothing! Is there another huge lawsuit in the making? Caught on video: An RCS bus aide caught slapping a physically challenged student! (The bus driver has responsibility for everything but didn’t intervene nor did the driver report the incident as per the law!) The mandatory training required by the anti-bullying Dignity Act has not yet been completed in the RCS schools and Superintendent Elizabeth R. Smith is taking her “vacation” and nowhere around for the start of the school year! She don’t care…she’s a short-timer!

Albany County Sherif Craig Apple estimates that taking over the Coeymans P.D. would save residents about $500,000.

Professional Law Enforcement
Community Leader, Family Man
Learn More About Him at Craig

Craig Apple, who grew up in this area and graduated from RCS, assured residents:
“There is no job loss…All you will get is a different color uniform and a different car.”

The New Look for Coeymans

Coeymans Population according to the 2010 census was 7418 down from 8151 in 2000. The Average number of household members was 2.85. But the Coeymans Police Department has bloated out of proportion to the shrinking community.

Turn it Over and Save!

We were suspicious of Dirty Hands Deluca’s math so we did our own calculations of the savings to Coeymans residents if the Coeymans P.D. were eliminated. So, if a total of about $500,000 is saved by turning the Coeymans P.D. over to the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, the savings per resident in the would amount to $0.674 cents per person or $1.92 per day per person ($500,000 / 7418 residents x 2.85 persons per household = $1.92). This represents a savings per average household of about $700.00 per year ($1.92 x 365) per household! (Note that Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, speaking on behalf of the Police Benevolent Association based his low figure on persons with a $200,000 house! But what else would you expect from Dirty-Hands Jerry. An honest figure, maybe? No way, José!).

A savings of about $700 a year per household! Imagine that! Now why didn’t Dirty-Hands Jerry mention that?

So the president of the Coeymans Police Benevolent Association couldn’t even be bothered to address the Coeymans town board meeting and so Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca a member of the Coeymanazi HQ, a.k.a. the Coeymans Police Department,  presented the misinformation and the screwed up math for him. Why would the PBA even bother? There’s nothing in it for them.

So, here are the FACTS
(the TRUE facts, not the “Deluca factoids”):

If a highly trained, accountable, and professional law enforcement organization like the Albany County Sheriff’s Department were to take over the Coeymans Police Department, what do you think would happen to Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca? Well, here’s what would happen:

As most of the Town of Coeymans knows,Coeymans police chief  Dimwit Darlington’s predecessor had the good sense to have gotten rid of Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca but Dimmy Darlington hired most of pervs back who were dumped by the previous professional police chief. That’s what Coeymans has to work with today, the Perv Patrol.

First of all, if Gerald Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca were kept on in any form, he’d be supervised by no-nonsense supervisors and be held accountable to well-established policies and procedures. That would probably kill him outright.

Secondly, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca would be supervised and would not have the influence he now has as far as influencing the police work in the Coeymans P.D. or continuing the coercion and retaliation that goes on there.

But the reality is this: He’d probably be out of a job on day one of the takeover because he’s useless and has no training. The highly-trained, professional, and respectable Albany County Sheriff’s Department wouldn’t give Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca a job passing out Easter eggs in the men’s room. (He just might get a job as Big Bubba’s bitch in the county jail, though, where he belongs!) So Dirty-Hands Jerry is probably scared shiteless even thinking that the ACSD would take over the Coeymanazi H.Q.! He’d be out of a job for sure.

I’ll be waiting for you, Jerry!
Big Bubba, P.O. Box Albany County Jail

Gregory “Dimwit” Darlington is an even worse widget. Darlington has such a high opinion of himself and such a low opinion of the town of Coeymans that pays his exhorbitant salary  that he’s quoted in the Times Useless as having said:

“Without us, I feel this town will collapse.”

Is that so? The Town of Coeymans would simply collapse without Dimwit Darlington to hold it up? Seriously, is that what all those supporters think,too? That’s a very serious statement Dimmy Darlington is making, especially considering that it took him at least three tries to pass the police chief examination! Now, where do you think Dimmy Darlington would end up once the ACSD took over the Coeymanazi H.Q. You guessed it, he’d take Dirty-Hands Deluca’s job handing out Easter eggs in the men’s room (Dirty-Hands Jerry would be kept busy by Big Bubba.)

Coeymans Police Chief
Gregory “Dimmy” Darlington
Gets a New Uniform
(And a Job he’s Qualified For)

Do you even have to wonder why the Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach and the Albany County Sheriff didn’t consult with Dimmy Darlington before moving on the plan to eliminate the Coeymans P.D.? Here’s why: He’s useless. It’s the biggest slap in the face when even your town supervisor doesn’t have enough respect for you to ask you about your own department. Same applies for the Sheriff. And what about the rest of the Coeymans town board, didn’t the latest loser in town, Tom Dolan, the so-called town board liaison officer to the Coeymans P.D. even share the news with Dimmy Darlington? Now there’s a real friend for ya, Dimmy! Tom “No-Fracking-Loser” Dolan left you high and dry, too.

So, Coeymans residents, what are you losing if a professional police force takes over the local police department? You lose at most  two Dimmies. And in addition to an accountable, well-trained, professional police force, each household stands to save about $700 a year!

And Coeymans town residents can certainly find a use for another $500,000 a year, I’m sure. Like rehabing Main Street, maybe, and attracting some business? Or perhaps updating the sewer system to keep the feces off the lawn furniture? Or helping out with the RCS Community Library?

Mr Flach has a great idea and he should be supported. The Coeymans Police Department must go and the professionals at the ACSD are ready to provide professional law enforcement with practically no change except it will be for a half-million less than what you’re now paying. Don’t be misled by the self-interests of the Dimmies and the misinformation of the PBA, or the lies that Dirty-Hands Jerry feeds you so that he can stay head honcho of the Coeymanazi H.Q. and you have to live with business as usual!

A Senile, Demented Brain Gives Birth: You Pay Again!

Well, We Can Say:
“We Told You So!”


Which Brain Is the Father
of Ravena Mayor Bruno’s Brainchild?

We know it sounds strange talking about brains in the same breath as the Ravena village board and senile mayor John T. Bruno and his crooked minions, and we problably should rather be talking about mandatory sentencing guidelines but Hey! brains is the subject of the day. Right? And so when you talk about Good you have to talk about evil. Right? When you talk about brains you have to talk about brainless, too.

Ravena-Coeymans has recently been reading headlines like, “Future uncertain for library as lease deal falls through“, “Village to library: Vacate premises by October 31“, “Ravena library can stay put for now” but we had already predicted this situation back on May 2, 2012, before the budget votes, in our article “Library Proposal Still ‘In Press’”  in which we predicted that the Ravena Public Library was going to be another “Swimming Pool” and our headline was “Is the RCS Public Library Plan Going to Be Another RCS Swimming Pool? Poor Planning, Too Many Questions, Too Few Answers…Kill It Now Before It Gets Too Far Along and You’re Stuck with an Monkey on Your Backs!” And your wise village board, John Bruno, Martin Case, Rocco Persico, Bill Bailey, and your darling Biscone component, Nancy Biscone-Warner (yes, wife of town justice-under-investigation, Harold “Hal” Warner) together with the omnipresent Cathy and Jerry “Dirty Hands” Deluca, are going to give you another albatross on your backs: a village fitness center!

Our library article would be worth reading if you haven’t read it (just click on the link in the above paragraph) already and should be re-read even if you have. Because it’s no joke: the same people who were involved in the RCS swimming pool fiasco are involved in this baby, too. Do the names Deluca, Bruno, Biscone sound familiar. Yes! They mixed up in this lunatic development, too.

And there is just as much sneaking around, just as many secret meetings, and taxpayer money is being mismanaged by people like John Bruno, who was just cited for gross mismanagement of Ravena accounts and whose reply was, “I didn’t know.” My bullshit meter is going off the scale at this point.

Or did you all forget that little scandal that came out of the recent audit of the village of Ravena! Gosh you all have short memories…an epidemic of Alzheimer’s disease seems to be happening in Ravena-Coeymans. No one remembers beyond yesterday!

Was anyone aware that back in March, shortly after the March elections, Mayor John Bruno met behind closed doors with Guess who! Cathy Deluca, Nancy Warner, Marty Case, and a couple of others to discuss, Guess what! A Ravena community fitness center! Just what Ravena needs, a healthclub (or just what Nancy Biscone-Warner and Harold “Hal” Warner want, a private local healthclub). How many fitness centers have failed in Ravena-Coeymans, already? Anyone counting? And wasn’t Cathy Deluca running one of the failed centers?

Mayor John T. Bruno
Mayor of Ravena, NY
Has he gone bananas?

But the local media reported, “The brainchild of Mayor John Bruno, the fitness center would be a viable option for the village since there would be no need to lease space from another owner and because there is $100,000 worth of exercise equipment in the village available for purchase now, since the Neighborhood Health and Fitness Center has closed its doors, according to Warner.”


Ever wonder why the Neighborhood Health and Fitness Center closed its doors? But Bruno is there, ready to write a check for at least $50,000 of your money to fund another failure…and hire Cathy Deluca (surprised?) to manage the place. Like with Cathy Deluca running the place who needs a recession? Why don’t we have a haloween bonfire and just burn the $50-grand?

In a letter dated September 13 from Judy Felsten, RCS Community Library Director, she asks “Friends, Neighbors and Library Patrons for their vocal support to convince the Village government to allow the Library to remain where it is until a suitable permanent facility is ready.” According to Judith Felsten, “the Mayor of Ravena, John T. Bruno,notified the Library that it must vacate its location in the Village Building by October. Bruno writes that he has the unanimous support of the Village Board. They plan to buy the Neighborhood Fitness Center’s equipment and create a fitness center in the library space.” Now that sound just about right for the brainchild of a senile mind: kick out the library and put in a fitness center! The illiterates in Ravena don’t need a library but just think of all the whales that will flock to Bruno’s fitness center to drop those twinkie pounds! Yeah, and pigs have wings, too!

Village board member Rocco Persico’s cousin, Don Persico, owns the former Knights of Columbus building where the Library director and board members enthusiastically misinformed the public of the great news, more space, nicer facilities, all centrally located, and a NY state grant to pay for it! Yeah, did I say that pigs have wings, too? Yup! I did. All the hype and misinformation was back in May of this year when the “It’s for the kids” was a popular slogan of the Coeymanazis and anyone who opposed the school budget or the library budget was just plain unpatriotic and anti-family! But the Library’s troubles began later, in September, when the board coulnd’t come to an agreement with Don Persico, owner of the building at 95 Main Street, which was to be the library’s new home. So that was at least FOUR months since the library announced the brilliant plan…four months of so-called negotiation and then…NOTHING! Great planning library board, great community spirit Village board, Don Persico. And then your wonderful Mayor John Bruno tells the library “Tough cookies! Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner want a fitness center!” Remember how we reported the outrageous incestuous relationships in the Ravena-Coeymans club? Well not only is Nancy Warner a trustee of the Village of Ravena, she’s a Biscone! Yeah, one of those mafiosi who have been screwing the Village of Ravena for more than 50 years!

And Remember the grant that Judith Felsten and her cronies touted was to pay for the expense of the library’s new home? The grant the Library had planned on applying for required that a ten year lease be signed. At the presentation just before the budget vote, which, by the way, you all passed, Felsten made it all sound like it was all in the bag. What happened, Don Persico, did you get even more greedy than before? Or did Cathy Deluca and Nancy Biscone-Warner pursuade mayor John Bruno and Rocco Persico that if the library’s space were committed, the library would be forced to accept Don Persico’s insatiable greed. Or was it just plain stupidity? The whole plan was a nut cake idea in the first place and totally devoid of any intelligent planning! We wrote that back in May when we heard the idiotic presentation and the half-baked plan. Read the RCS Community Library’s report on relocating the library at rcs community library (it’s outdated but has some interesting information).

“The grant requires a ten year lease. So by virtue of not reaching an agreement on the lease, the library could not submit the grant,” Felsten explained all of that to the Ravena board members, mayor John Bruno and Trustees Marty Case, Nancy Biscone-Warner and Rocco Persico at a Village Board workshop meeting early in September. But the fitness club deal was a done deal.

Your RCS Tax Dollars Working for You!
Thanks Ravena Village Board!

Question: How could the idiotic idea for a Ravena fitness center in the building occupied by the village offices, in an obscure location, in a community of about 3000 people, most of whom are beyond fitness either because of disease, age, or simply morbid obesity be even considered. How is it legal that all of these decisions are being made without public inputs? Without a reasonable effort at putting the project out for public bids? If it’s a village of Ravena project, why wasn’t a selection panel set up to review applicants for the job of manager? How can the village of Ravena, with all of its overspending and mismanagement woes, even consider spending at least $50,000 on used fitness equipment!!!!

What happens when the equipment breaks down–and it will–out of warranty? Who pays for the repairs? YOU DO! What about adapting the space, sanitation, showers, changing rooms, bathrooms, maintenance costs, and the list goes on! It’s plain DEMENTED, the product of a bunch of thieves and a senile brain!

Are you all crazy?!? It’s not the Ravena residents who will benefit from all of this conniving and conspiracy. It’s whoever gets paid the $50,000 for a ton of scrap equipment! It’s the insiders who get the jobs to adapt the space and manage the club, like Cathy Deluca. It’s the insiders like the Brunos, the Persicos, the Biscones, the Warners , and the Delucas, who have set the whole thing up to walk away with your money and big grins all the way to the bank!

It’s the same bunch of corrupt Coeymanazis who pushed for the 2012-13 school budget and the library budget chanting the mantra “It’s for the kids!” And then went nutz when things didn’t go their way like with firing the double-dipping energy manager, Matt Miller,  who was making $10,000 in addition to his teacher’s salary, which he receives for doing a reduced teaching load so he can take care of teacher’s union business on your dimes! Like demanding that the RCS Sports Association file the required paperwork before being allowed to operate on school property. Like demanding that the so-called RCS Bottle Blitz pay to use the school property like any other outside program!

Yeah, “It’s for the kids!” Like the fitness center is “for the kids.” Like a community library is less important than padding your corrupt friends’ pockets. Like all the seniors and others who use the community library are automatically going to become fitness freaks. Think again people.

But the great sages on the Ravena village board in there magnanimous wisdom and community spirit have allegedly given the Ravena Community Library a grace period until December, we hear. Isn’t that just ducky!

Forget About It!
It’s Just too Crazy!

The Headlines Read:
Tkaczyk wins Democratic ticket in 46th Senate District

And instead of being a man about being bested by a smart woman who actually ran on the real issues and did some actual campaigning, and got out knocking on doors and meeting the people whose votes she wanted. BUT Tom Dolan dragged ass, and when he lost, says:

“At a certain point in the race I realized that the redistricting was fixed. It was made for the Republicans. Once they did the redistricting, the die was cast. The only reason I decided to continue was because of the important issue of hydrofracking. We’ll see how it all plays out.”

Yeah, “Dirty Hands”. I’ll take’em ALL!
And you can bill it to
the Town of Coeymans!
(They like picking up my tab!)

SOUR GRAPES, TOM? Is that the best you can come up with, to blame the Republicans?!?! Didn’t you do you’re homework, Tom? Wouldn’t you have known that before running on “No Fracking”?  There’s a lot of “fracking” going on in Coeymans, Guilderland and Albany, right Tom? [Editor’s Note: the Daily Mail reported that primary winner Tkaczyk, Dolan and Arias Miranda oppose hydrofracking, while all three support creating more green jobs. Only Dolan made “No Fracking” his campaign slogan. Bad move, Tom!]

Oh, lest we forget, a Democrat beat you, Tom! Was that the Republicans’ fault, too? YOU DORK! Think before you open your mealy mouth and you might not look like the buffoon you are!

Tom Dolan did as much for his bid for a state senate seat as he does back home in good ol’ Coeymans…NOTHING…except TALK SHITE and offer LAME EXCUSES why he comes out last!

Congrats! Coeymans! That’s the guy the majority of you voted for! Thanks for nothing! You can’t even help yourselves in the voting booths!

This Says It All!
The Editor

NEWS FLASH! Dirty Hands Jerry doesn’t come up with the political support thru his  alleged NYS Assembly and “political” connections nor thru Deluca Public Affairs to support his buddy Tom Dolan. Now Tom Dolan has to have his pix on Scott Toilet Tissue to pay his campaign expenses or find a way to weasel money out of Coeymans! Dirty Hands Jerry and Cathy Deluca should be able to help, though, they have a Bottle Blitz and now Cathy and Dirty Hands Jerry might even have a health club/gym–of course Ravena may have lost it’s public library. Sorry kids, seniors–you didn’t need a library (according to Jerry and Cathy Deluca and John Bruno. But Hal and Nancy Warner (Biscone) needed a local health club! Thank you, Coeymans!).

Albany Times Union: Best Media Bias Money Can Buy! Can You Afford it Anymore?

The Only News the Times Useless Seems to Print About the Ravena-Coeymans Community is Either Negative or When a Corrupt Candidate for Albany County or State Office is Running…
The Rule Is: Smear Them Or Use Them. Seems To Work for Some.

Albany Times Union Reporting:
Makes Even Brian Wanna Puke!

The fact that the trash even makes it into the news is symptomatic of the depravity of this area and especially of the Times Union and that trash-tramp Dayelin Roman. Why do you people let them get away with it? Where’s the editor of the News Herald? Shouldn’t that rag be championing this area?

Well, one of our readers, Pundit,  is fed up with it all and has writting with the following:

I am now attempting to find a way to post the following on a Times-Union Blog site but am unable to find the location to do so. In the meantime, I am posting it here as the site is open and fair and allows posting on any subject, especially if it is relevant to the Ravena Area. Here ’tis:

This comment refers to the article I read this morning I titled:

“Cops crack Coeymans crash mystery. Son of RCS school board member allegedly drove SUV into house then fled”

Written By Dayelin Roman and it says it was “Updated 7:45 a.m., Wednesday, September September 19, 2012”.

While I am happy to see the TU [Times Useless = Times Union newspaper] is following Local News and reporting criminal acts, I am beginning to wonder if there is something to be said about a bias against that Ravena School District, which is just to the South of beautiful Delmar. Whether the young man is guilty or not will I am sure be proven, I wonder what it has to do with the subtitle “Son of RCS school board member” has to do with anything?

It is difficult enough to find people to take on this and other difficult non-paying Volunteer jobs without including comments like this-and it has nothing to do with the story-or at least it was not explained how it does.

The reporter on the local TV news station went a step beyond when interviewing the Dad when they asked “are you going to support your son…” – to Mr. Lukens’ credit he kept his cool and just got into his vehicle after saying “of course, he is my son”!

Where are these reporter wannabees hired from? I ask, are news people from some other planet? Is there a Times-Union policy on when to use the names and jobs of Parents when reporting news about their children? It seems to be a spotty reporting practice as one rarely sees this in print. Similarly, I have seen other articles by this reporter about the Ravena School District Board members having legal issues and/or higher profile items of interest but do not see it about other Districts and am sure the Ravena District is not so removed from the mainstream.

I also find it odd that, when one looks at the Blog site under Places, Ravena is not even listed! desirable Bethlehem is, along with wonderful Guilderland and beautiful Delmar.

Just wondering.

Thanks for the time.


Everything BUT the Truth!
The Albany Times Union
by Dayelin Roman

Maybe you all should go to the TU blog site and start blasting them! Perhaps cancelling your subscription or your advertising in the rag would show some community spirit. Or have you lost all of your community spirit and self-respect?  If you have no respect for yourself how can you expect someone else to respect you?

Now, here’s the real question: Mr Lukens is one of the local business persons on the BoE and is NOT a member of the teacher’s clique, he did speak up in favor of eliminating the Coeymans Police Department, he was in favor of making the RCS Sports Association file the proper paperwork like everyone else. Think this might be another smear campaign by the Coeymanazis?

Here’s another question: Do you think Tom Dolan’s kids would have gotten that press? How about Deluca’s? Biscone’s (no, he’d just get the felony buried by one of the Teresis or the Coeymans police simply wouldn’t “investigate.”) How about one of the Brunos? Don’t think so. If you do, Wanna buy a bridge?

Hear much about Joe Tracey’s court appearances lately? How about Mayor Bruno’s brain fart to spend more than $50,000 on the failied Ravena fitness equipment (formerly the Delucas’ fiasco and their snog shack). What about Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca’s comments on their FaceBook page that the local residents should support the purchase of the equipment for the healthclub where the former library was located. Deluca says the library isn’t needed. But ask him who’s getting the money and who that person is related to. Ask him also who is going to manage the Mayor’s little gem of senile thinking (Hint: Rumor is her first name is Cathy.) By the way, did anyone hear about any public meetings to discuss the health club or the purchase of the equipment? We sure didn’t. Or is Bruno investing his own money? Not likely. Did anyone read about this in the Times Union? Or about Tom Dolan’s shady past or lack-luster do absolutely-nothing-present in local government? That’s not likely either, is it? Do you think there’s any media bias here?

Or how about the firing of a local parent from her school district job for filing a complaint against one of the RCS Sports Association athletics coaches, almost immediately after filing the complaint? Anyone read about that scandalous abuse, retaliation, harassment in the Albany Times Useles rag? Probably not!

You’re All Getting Closer to the Slaugher!
What do you expect when you’re SHEEPLE!

Elizabeth “Betsy” R. Smith a.k.a. Superintendent Double-Talk

Mr James Latter Recently Informed the Community that The Superintendent of Schools ‘Does Not have to Answer Residents’ Questions.’

Well, Mr Latter, Although You Were Out of Order and Very Wrong to Have Written that, You’ll Be Pleased to Know that RCS Central School District Superintendent Elizabeth R. Smith Doesn’t Answer Residents’ Questions.

She Just Double-talks Them to Oblivion!

Well, That’s Being Too Fair, Actually, She’s Apparently Dyslexic … We’ve already Established That She’s Illiterate (see our article,  The RCS District RFP Is an Embarassment and a Sham!) but We Now Think She Has a Much More Serious Problem: Indifference!

But she did little when she was in the job, now she’s given her notice–after she’s padded her retirement checks with the $140,000 salary she’s ending with–and so she can wait it out another month or two, she’s a shorttimer now. She’ll leave the mess for the next crook who gets hired to the position.

We covered the illicit, delinquent, and illegal conduct of the RCS athletics coaches when they asked students to sell raffle tickets on behalf of the RCS Sports Association (see our article, Raffle, Anyone?). It was clear in that article that there was serious misconduct going on right under Brian Bailey’s and Elizabeth Smith’s noses!  We also published Superintendent Smith’s idiotic response (rather, refusal to respond) to that situation, as well in our article, No Response From District Office, Ms. Smith. It gets worse, still, because when we published our article on our suspicion of illegal money transactions at the National Bank of Coxsackie by the RCS Sports Association, there was still no action taken (see our article More Money Questions…Who’s Cashing the Checks?)

No Answers, Betsy?

So, even after all of that scandalous misconduct, we are still asking why the RCS district offices, the Superintendent, especially, and the Board of Education, too, have not addressed these concerns and put their foot down squarely on the culprits’ necks?!? We’re still asking WHO? is the RCS Sports Association, WHAT? are they doing having the coaches hand out raffle tickets to students to sell, and HOW MUCH? the RCS Bottle Blitz is paying to use school facilities!

We recently obtained a copy of a letter request addressed to Superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” R. Smith, dated September 11, 2012 and received at the District Offices on September 12, 2012, in which a concerned resident requests information regarding the action taken against the RCS athletics coaches who writes:

“Could you please advise me of the action taken with the coaches that told the students to sell raffle tickets? It is my understanding that this is illegal and the students again were placed in a situtation that gave them no recourse except to do what they were told for fear of reprisal. Also, who is collecting this money, and who and what will these funds be used for? Many community members are very concerned that inappropriate behavior on the part of our teachers/coaches continues and feel it is essential that administration take immediate, legal action against any and all staff who continue to disregard policy and law further damaging the welfare of the students as well as this district’s reputation.
[Name Redacted]

The letter is very clear in that the writer asks specific questions:

  1. What is the action taken with the coaches who unlawfully told students to sell raffle tickets?
  2. Who is collecting the money?
  3. For whom and for what will the funds be used?
  4. The question is also asked impliedly “What action the administration is going to take against any and all staff who disregard policy and law, endangering students and damaging the district’s reputation?”

The questions are pretty clear, aren’t they? You’d expect the Superintendent of schools to be able to read and understand such simple language, wouldn’t you? After all, it’s clear English, and it’s really quite clear and plainly stated, isn’t it?

But the question is nagging: Why doesn’t Superintendent Smith simply answer the questions? She simply refuses to answer our questions or those posed by residents! Why is that, we wonder!?! So, here’s your Superintendent of Schools, Ms Elizabeth “Betsy” R. Smith‘s “answer” to the resident’s written questions:

Thank you for your letter, which I opened today.  [Name Redacted] delivered it to me after our Building, Grounds and Transportation meeting yesterday.   All RCS coaches of fall sports were notified of the law restricting raffle ticket sales to adults 18 and over. 

“Community Organizations and Parent-Teacher Organizations may conduct fund raisers and raffles.  Those organizations can be contacted for information about their fund raisers.


Am I missing something, or what? “Thank you…[Name Redacted] delivered the letter…All RCS coaches…were notified of the law restricting raffle ticket sales to adults 18 and over.” What about the coaches distributing the tickets to students and telling them to sell them? Did you miss that Betsy? Didn’t you understand the question, Betsy? Need your eyes examined, Betsy?

Wot Duhn’t U Understand, Ms Smith?

“Community Organizations and Parent-Teacher Organizations may conduct fund raisers and raffles.” Duh! So what, Betsy? Who cares?
Those organizations can be contacted for information about their fund raisers.” What in hell are you blathering about, Betsy? Have you lost your mind? Who cares? Answer the damned questions, why don’t you?!?

So parents, residents, community members, on September 18, 2012, at the very next board of education meeting, we urge you to press Ms Smith for a more detailed, responsive answer to these questions we’ve raised in our article about the raffle ticket sales (see Raffle, Anyone?), Smith’s command of the English language, and the progress made in getting the required documentation from the RCS Sports Association that verifies their legality.

Who’s Cleaning Up the Money?

We will also be interested in parents, residents, taxpayers, and community members pressing Ms Smith and the Board of Education to know how much the RCS Bottle Blitz was charged for the use of the high school cafeteria on September 14th. As an outside program not affiliated with the RCS school district and not a registered organization of any kind, the RCS Bottle Blitz would be subject to hourly charges for the use of the school property, just like the community sports clubs are being charged. We need to know, How much? Who’s paying for opening and closing the building, the insurance, the utilities, the clean-up, etc.?

Superintendent Smith’s Legacy to the RCS Central School District
(+ A Couple of Lawsuits)

So, Superintendent Smith, we have just one last question for you: If YOU, the Superintendent of Schools for this RCS central school district, can’t read and comprehend simple English in a short letter asking very clear and concise questions for the purpose of answering them just as plainly and concisely, how do you intend to convince parents, taxpayers of this district that they are getting what they think they’re paying for.

Also, will you please now answer the questions the resident asked in the above letter. Thank you!

It’s Those Voices In James Latter’s and Elizabeth Smith’s Heads that Are Causing
All the Problems!

Supervisor Flach: On Eliminating the Coeymans P.D.

Finally, Someone in the Double-wide a.k.a. the Coeymans Town Hall Is Waking Up and Listening to Reason and Proposing Sound Economics!

Supervisor Flach: “I want to ensure personal safety while saving taxpayer dollars.”

In Early July 2012 We Published Two Articles on The Cost of the Coeymans P.D. and the Good Sense in Eliminating it Outright. After All, Our Tax Dollars Are Paying for Two Other Law Enforcement Organizations That Regularly Serve Coeymans: The Albany County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police. Why Pay and Additional Estimated More Than $2 Million a Year to Have A Local Band of Thugs Who So Far Have Served Mainly As a Long Arm of the Local Coeymanazis, Have Raised Numerous Questions of Corruption, and Have Been the Cause of Innumerable Complaints and Lawsuits, Costing The Taxpayers Dearly!

Coeymans Town Supervisor announced in the Supervisor’s Report printed in the September 7, 2012, Ravena News Herald newspaper, that he has been studying the possibility of eliminating the Coeymans Police Department and asking the Albany County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police to take over law enforcement in the Town of Coeymans. (Read the entire Supervisor’s Report: Supervisor Report-Eliminating the Coeymans Police Department)

We advocated that move back in July in our article Eliminating the Coeymans Police Department, where we argue that more than $2 million could be saved by getting rid of the Coeymans P.D. We also expressed our outrage when the Coeymans town board approved the appointment of officer Kerry Thompson to be police chief Gregory Darlington’s admin assistant at more than $30.00 per hour! We published that gem in our article, One Step Forward, Two Steps Backward: Kerry Thompson gets $30+/hour!

According to Supervisor Flach’s report in the News Herald his “job as…elected official is to manage the town budget, while improving and maintaining services.” It’s nice to hear someone in office talking like that and actually someone having the cojones to actually say it out loud.

Supevisor Flach goes on to say that many local communities are downsizing or eliminating their law enforcement departments to save money and that he wants to “ensure personal safety for our community members while saving taxpayer dollars.” Flach has guts and integrity by even entertaining such a sensible plan and we should stand behind him because he’s really trying to make improvements and do the best for the community.

Surpervisor Flach closes his article with an appeal to the community to let him know what it wants. He asks residents to e-mail him or board members to voice their opinions. Supervisor Flach gives his e-mail as and asks to hear from you.

We would also suggest as many residents as possible attend the Coeymans town board meeting on Monday, September 10, at 7:00 p.m. at the Coeymans town hall. You can probably expect to see a lot of Coeymans P.D. people there protesting the proposed elimination of the department. That’s why it’s important to have the rest of the community show up in support of Flach’s plan.

Good Things Happen Only If You Support Them!

Please note that even if there are some thugs on the Coeymans force, there are also some very good people on the Coeymans P.D. and every effort should be made to make the transition smoothly and to ensure that there are outplacement efforts made to place qualified people in positions where they can continue supporting themselves…preferably not at Coeymans taxpayer expense.

You should support Supervisor Flach’s plan because there is no real or reasonable need to pay for three law enforcement organizations to serve Coeymans. You already are paying for the Sheriff’s department and State Police services so save yourself at least $2 million a year, and support Flach’s plan.

James Latter: ‘The Superintendent Does Not Have to Answer Resident’s Questions.’

Board of Education Member James Latter Says in an E-Mail to RCS Superintendent Elizabeth E. Smith that She Works for the Board of Education, Not for the Community. She Doesn’t Have to Run Around Responding to Community Requests!

Mr James Latter Never Learns!
He Should Keep His Cake Hole Shut!

Ever Wonder What Secret Messages Your Elected Officials Send to Each other? Here’s An Example! Straight from RCS Board of Education Member (You Elected Him!) James Latter’s Dirty Little Fingers to Your Screen!

We recently published an exchange of emails between a resident and Ms Elizabeth Smith regarding the unlawful and illicit involvement of RCS athletics coaches in the sale by RCS students of unauthorized raffle tickets distributed unlawfully by the RCS Sports Association, in violation of policies, procedures, and the law. We published the emails in our article Raffle, Anyone? In that same article, we raise the question of whether or not the RCS Bottle Blitz has requested permission to use school property and whether the Bottle Blitz is required to pay for that use like other organizations. As usual, Superintendent “Betsy” Smith avoided most of the questions.  It appears Mr Latter doesn’t like the fact that the resident contacted the District offices directly. Too bad!

Seems every time you open your fat cakehole, Latter, it gets you in hotter water! So, you think the Superentendent works for YOU? Is that so, Mr James latter? Is that why she’s such a puppet? Is that why so little information gets out in response to the community, Mr Latter, because Ms Smith works for YOU? Mr Latter, if Ms Smith works for you, can we assume YOU are writing out checks to her? If Ms Smith works for you, Mr Latter, and you are elected by the community, doesn’t that mean that you both work for and are accountable to the community? Sounds like you are a bit confused, Mr Latter. So, tell us, Mr Latter, when’s the last time YOU wrote a check to fund your position and for Ms Smith’s excessive salary? Mr Latter, how dare you write a letter like this (we’re assuming this went to Smith):

Community Emails
James Latter []
Sent: Friday, September 07, 2012 8:04 AM

I am concerned about community emails that are demanding information from our Superintendent with deadlines and promises of escalation of [Editors Note: Does Latter mean “if”?] those deadlines are not met. The superintendent works for us not the community and only has an obligation to get back to the community as time permits. School started this week and I would rather the superintendent focus on that than running around gathering detailed info for a community member. I have not seen a response from you [Editor’s Note: meaning Smith?] to this community member, but I think it is the presidents job to remind community members of how things work. If you do not feel comfortable with this task then maybe you could have Mr Robbins help out. Either way I think a response from the BOE needs to go out today addressing this community members email.
Thank you,

Thank you,

If you can get past the poor grammar and spelling errors in Latter’s letter, it looks like Mr Latter did this letter on company time. Anyone wonder if he did it during lunch or charged personal or vacation time to do it? Or is it his habit to take care of personal business on company time. Wonder if his manager is aware of Mr Latter’s theft of company time.

Poor, overworked superintendent! Did you eliminate her staff, Mr Latter? Doesn’t she know how to delegate, Mr Latter? What planet are you on, Mr Latter? Furthermore, if Madam Superintendent does not have to respond to residents, she’s got a mouth, let her use it, and tell residents she does not have to answer their questions, that she works for you!  Say it publicly so we all know.

Mr Latter, we feel very strongly that you need to make this statement at a Board of Education meeting, in public, to the public. The public needs to know what you think, Mr Latter. The public needs YOU to tell THEM that they are paying Ms Elizabeth Smith more than $140,000 a year to work for YOU, that she doen’t have time to answer the community’s questions! Will you do that, Mr Latter? Do you have the balls to make that public statement directly to the public?

How about you, Ms Smith? Did you really have to run around getting detailed information for that community member? Didn’t you have that information immediately available? (You should have, it was current and relevant to a burning issue, Ms Smith!) Do you feel you don’t have to answer the community’s questions? Did YOU know you work for James Latter? Would you like to make that statement publicly? That would save us a lot of money in November, when you retire and start collecting a pension based on the $140,000 you’re collecting from the community to work for James Latter. Save us that money, Ms Smith. Save us that money, Mr Latter!

By the way, is that why the community has to ask the same questions over and over again and still get no answer, despite the fact that Ms Smith repeats her canned response, “I’ll get back to you on that?”

Mr Latter, Ms Smith: If that’s what you actually believe, that you don’t need to respond to the community, you both really need some education and some discipline. Better still, you need to GO! And go without a pension!

Latter expresses the very attitude that needs to be eliminated in this community: the in-crowd, string-pullers have all the say and the community can take a leap. You, good people, loyal readers, must take steps to change their attitude. The place to start is at the next Board of Education meeting!

James Latter Is In The Wrong Place. He doesn’t know it but we do!

David Soares Has Lost All Dignity

The Saying that “A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words” Is OH! So True!

Kong Made Him Do It!

Albany County District Attorney David Soares Has Lost All Dignity But the Upside of His Downslide is that He’s Finally Found A Level He Can  Relate To Effectively…And He’s Found Something–Other Than Philandering and Mouthing Off and Getting into Hot Water–He’s Found His Political Niche, the “Silly Dance”!

This is the Albany County District Attorney, David Soares, Doing What He Does Best!
What A Jerk!

Soares must be really desperate if this is the way he has to convince voters that he should be re-elected to continue desecrating the law and misadministering law enforcement in Albany County. All Soares has proved is that he has to go, and Lee Kindlon needs to be elected to get things back on track in Albany!

(Actually, when I first saw this picture, I immediately jumped to the 1933 classic, King Kong, the scene where the landing party on Skull Island first see the natives doing the Kong stomp! You can view the clip at King Kong – Stomp Dance. Decide for yourself!)

Seriously, parents, did you really feel comfortable having this lunatic so close to your children? Aren’t you afraid they’ll catch something? But then, stupidity isn’t supposed to be contageous. They may still be safe.

When this imbecile isn’t dipping his pen in company ink (if you get my gist), he’s making some idiotic statement that gets him censured and disciplined, or he’s maliciously prosecuting someone where there’s no case. The man’s a Moron (note the capital)!

Anyone ever ask why Soares spends so much time in Ravena-Coeymans? Must remind him of his primitive African island origins. Yeah. That has to be it. Has to be it. Gregory Darlington, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, Tom Dolan, and the rest of the Coeymanazis are conspicuously absent from this degrading performance. Probably afraid Soares would show them up doing the silly dance!

Give Me A Break, Soares!
I’m Begging You! You’re Killing Me!
