Stupidity, Denial, Coeymanazis and Silly String

בס”ד

Greed, Corruption, Denial, Coeymanazis…Actually, Simplemindedness May Be the Real Key to RCS’s Decline.

Claudia Verga “Sillystringed”
Model of Adult Behavior
A.W. Becker Elementary School Principal

Are You Still Wondering That Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Is a Losers Club as a Community and as a District? Read on…

In my day, the school principal was a person who represented authority, was an important role model for students and even teachers, was a source of socialization. But that was before everyone and anyone could do anything and everything because everyone and anyone is his or her own person. And if it feels good you can do it. Look where that bullshit has gotten us as persons, families, communities, as a nation. Right down the crapper!

Note the Principal’s Defensive Posture!
Note the Aggression in the Children!
A Great Lesson…

So, I wasn’t all that surprised to have learned and read of the local principal who made a mockery of herself and became the incarnation of the stupid adult we have today. Where was that? At RCS A.W. Becker where principal Claudia Verga made herself the object of elementary school pupil’s disrespect and aggression by allowing herself to be publicly… SILLYSTRINGED!

Quick Update: RCS vs Vorheesville Comparison Figures

בס”ד

Vorheesville Highschool Has Outperformed RCS Consistently By a Considerable Margin for the Past Six Years. Dr Alan McCartney Was Instrumental in That Superior Performance.

Or You Can Stick With The Bronze

Graduation Rates Comparison: RCS HS vs. Vorheesville HS
Year RCS* Vorheesville*
2005-2006 82 % 94 %
2006-2007 83 % 95 %
2007-2008 82 % 97 %
2008-2009 83 % 91 %
2009-2010 78 % 93 %
2010-2011 80 % 98 %
* Figures provided by the respective school district offices.

So where did you say Superintendent Elizabeth R. Smith was taking the district…for a ride, you say? And what about all that talk about parents coming to the RCS district because of the fine reputation the schools have? Was that part of the pitch you got from the real estate salesperson who sold you the house? Or did you actually do real research? You’d better check your figures!

And if the teachers are so great, why are the graduation rates so low?

Let’s just put our bets on McCartney and shut up and let him do what he’s been hired to do. If you really want to bitch about someone, try bitching about Elizabeth R. Smith; she did nothing, jumped ship, and is still spending your tax dollars!

Shut up! And do your homework!

Open Letter to Interim Superintendent McCartney

 בס”ד

Welcome, Mr Superintendent, to the Troubled and Dysfunctional Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk School District!

Dear Dr McCartney:

We welcome you with open arms, although you’ll find most hearts and minds (what few functioning ones there are) in this district closed to anything new or positive, which might threaten the chronic stagnation here, and we would like to take this opportunity to offer some well-intentioned advice and provide some caveats.

No Public Inputs or Notice! Village Board Minutes Confirm!

We’ve Just Received The Village of Ravena’s Response to our Demand for Documents and It Appears that The Village of Ravena is Pulling Another Fast-One on Residents!

Village of Ravena Retaliating Against the RCS Community Library?

We Were Very Specific in Our Demand for Copies of Public Notices, Hearings, and Minutes and Public Comments, Both For and Against the Ravena Fitness Center, and the Names of Trustees Who Voted For and Against Spending $50-100,000 on Used Fitness Equipment.The Village of Ravena Provided only the Minutes of the Village board meeting of September 18, 2012, and was unable to provide any other documents relating to our request. What does this mean? It means that the Village of Ravena was given the opportunity to save its butt and show that it acted in good faith with the public’s trust and that it did its business in an open and transparent way, safeguaring the common good. But did the elected village trustees do that? NO!In fact, the only documents that the Village of Ravena was able to provide in response to the clearly worded request for documents was, as mentioned above, the minutes of the September 18, 2012, Ravena village board meeting, and an excuse for not being able to produce any public notices, minutes of hearings, public comments, etc. The excuse reads, “Denied: Public Notice, Hearings, Votes” Why? “Record of which this agency (the Village of Ravena) is legal custodian cannot be found.” Translation: The village of Ravena would normally have those documents but they don’t exist. What this means: The village of Ravena, the trustees of the Village of Ravena, never made any Public Notices, never held any Hearings, and never opened the question of the Fitness Center or the Spending of $50-100,000 on used fitness equipment. The trustees and mayor of Ravena apparently didn’t think the public, the voters had to know anything about the secret meetings held behind closed doors.

Junk Journalism: Dayelin Roman Bald. Spotted in a Guy-Suit!

Just When We Thought The Truck Had Taken Away the Garbage We Find Another Rotten Vegetable Taking Stabs at the RCS Community

Junk Journalist Michael Huber
Is Recruiting Whacko Writers for the
Albany Times Union Blog

Junk Journalist Dayelin Roman Has Left to Pollute the Newsprint in San Diego; Backwoods Butthead Michael Huber Apparently Has Stepped Up to Continue the Trash Tradition.

The Times Useless online muck published on the Albany Times Union “blogs” baits local lunatics with a cheap trashy attempt at journalism and then lets the rant-rambos continue making asses of themselves in comments that are uniformly nutzo and where no one has a name.

Michael Huber
(Put some hair around this guy’s head and what do you get? Scroll down for the answer!)

According to his TU description, Huber  “is the interactive audience manager for TimesUnion.com. In addition to managing the Times Union’s stable of citizen bloggers.” This hapless wannabe journalist and “stable manager” apparently runs the stable, rather the pigsty where he works without a clue about his own standards. Take this one, for example,

“Note: All comments are read and approved before they display. Comments with profanity or personal attacks will be rejected.”

After reading some of the posts on Huber’s blog, that statement is like him and the Times Useless: A Complete Joke!

Graduation Rates: Vorheesville CSD vs. RCS CSD

Maybe If the Residents and Parents in the RCS School District Would Shut Up Long Enough to Hear Some Good Sense and STOP Listening to the Self-Serving Lies of the Teachers Clique Guided by the Teachers Union This District Could Actually Achieve What the Vorheesville District has Achieved: 98% Graduation Rates!

If You Pull It Out
You May See the Truth!

And maybe, if the teachers clique on the RCS board of education–Alice Whalen, Howard Engel, James Latter, Edward Reville— would stop playing their stupid games and bullying the other members some real work could get done and this school district lifted out of the cesspool of corruption and scandal into which it’s been dumped by the special interest groups and the Coeymanazi greed machine!

Listen up, people: You’re bitching and moaning about internal accounting and missing the whole point: You’re trailing Vorheesville, YES MR ALAN MCCARNEY”S FORMER DISTRICT, by a good 20 percent in graduation rates!

Let Him or Her…Cast the First Stone … (John 8:7)

You All Behaved Like Animals, Like A Lynch Mob, Including Partisan BoE Members Alice Whalen, Howard Engel, and Edward Reville, When Attacking the Board’s Majority Decision to Hire Mr Alan McCartney as the New Interim Superintendent.
(Democratic Process is OK…
As Long As It Goes Your Way.)

If You Live in a Glass House…

So Many of You Called Him Immoral, Unethical, etc. But I Know of Many of Your Own Personal Histories And You Live in Glass Houses and Shouldn’t Be Casting Stones.

Some of the gals shouting the loudest have some pretty unsavory pasts, so before you speak and before I let the pussy out of the bag, you’d better think about what you say. There are plenty of guys with stories about you (I just may be one of them).
