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!)

This is no way to manage our tax dollars! The Editor

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!

Coeymans: Illegal “Work Zone” Signs and Unlawful Threat of Fines?

Driving down Rt 144 southbound into Coeymans, or northbound towards the Port of Coeymans, you may have noticed numerous work zone signs along the road and sometimes even flagmen. You may have also noticed that there are signs warning that exceeding the speed limit in work zones will result in doubled fines if convicted. On further investigation it seems that all of this is unlawful and very likely illegal, since neither Carver Companies nor the Port of Coeymans have the authority to post “work zone” or speed limit signs on a public roadway, and certainly do not have the authority to threaten motorists with doubled fines! And the town of Coeymans must enact ordinances, regulations or local laws to temporarily create work zones or speed limit restrictions [they haven’t].

Are these signs and the threat of double fines unlawful, even illegal?

Are these signs and the threat of double fines unlawful, even illegal?

Are these signs unlawful and illegal?

First of all, there is no public service or utility work going on in the area marked off by the signs. At least no construction or maintenance work being done by public authorities. The only construction going on is that of a private bridge over the Coeymans Creek, a bridge which itself is of dubious legality under the currently contested re-zoning in Coeymans. Furthermore, the bridge construction is not a public service nor is it a public works project, it’s private, and it cannot claim the authorities of law that apply to public works.

Since there are no public works projects, construction, maintenance, etc. going on in the area marked off by the signs and the threats, who is authorizing these signs and the “doubled fines” threat sign to be posted. Furthermore, Who is enforcing these restrictions and threats? in view of the fact that the only construction going on is private construction by Carver Laraway and Carver Companies?

And what is the work zone speed limit? Normally temporary reduced speed limits are imposed for workzones. The workzone speed limit is not posted!

Don’t those morons in Coeymans law enforcement, the Coeymans court, the Coeymans town board know about the DoT regulations and state law?

In fact, the entire so-called “work zone” is totally ignorant of state law and New York State Department of Transportation Engineering Instructions EI 08-030, incorporated into the update of chapter 16 of the Highway Design Manual (HDM). But Hey! doesn’t the town of Coeymans have a stellar police department, enlightened town justices, a brilliant highway department, a savvy code enforcement officer? Aren’t the taxpayers of the town of Coeymans paying these morons to know New York State Law and what to post, what not to post?

Furthermore, who’s the moron who thinks that anyone operating his or her vehicle through the work zone in excess of a work zone speed limit that isn’t even published is going to sit quietly when subjected to doubled fines when there is apparently no public works project going on and the only construction is a private construction project, the Carver Companies private bridge! Since when do our courts apply state law to private undertakings to enforce unlawful restrictions? The Carver Companies have no authority to impose speed limits or to enforce state laws, only duly constituted law enforcement has that authority and power.

And speaking of duly constituted law enforcement, where in hell are the Coeymans police hanging out these days? They’re certainly not serving and protecting along Rt 144 or anywhere around there. At best we see NY State Police stopping trucks but that’s just on a sporadic basis.

What we’d like to see is Coeymans police patrols enforcing the laws on the books like:

  • Heavy trucks observing the officially and lawfully posted speed limits;
  • Heavy trucks entering and leaving the Port of Coeymans and Carver Companies properties operating safely and courteously, in observance of traffic safety principles (like not pulling out in front of oncoming vehicles or waiting until faster traveling traffic passes before pulling out and having everyone jam on their brakes while the trucks meander along at 20 mph or slower)
  • How about putting some operating lights on or ticketing the drivers when they operate their trucks with no headlights even in the rain;
  • How about enforcing the law on clean, legible and if necessary lighted license plates (so that when they nearly kill us we can at least write down the license plate number in out last drops of blood);
  • How about unmarked cars observing the trucks failing to keep right? Pick a lane and stay in it maybe? Maybe the right lane?

But since the town of Coeymans is in Carver Laraway’s pocket, it doesn’t seem likely that the Coeymans police are going to start enforcing the law in the case of the heavy trucks and careless truck drivers, not unless we start setting some fires under their asses. Maybe the New York State Police and the Albany County Sheriff Department should be called in to do the job the Coeymans police are either unable or unwilling to do.

Here are some notes for those of you who are interested in the basis for our opinions. They’re from the New York State DOT Engineering Instructions and from the NYS DOT Highway Design Manual. We also quote New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law §§ 1180(f) Work Area Speed Limit.

Based on the sections below, we believe that the work zone signs, the failure to post a work zone speed limit (thus failing to provide due process and proper notice of drivers), and the doubled-fines signs are all unlawful, if not illegal. What do you think?

The New York State Department of Transportation manuals define a work zone in the following terms:

“A Work Zone is the area of a highway with construction, maintenance, or utility work activities. It is typically marked with signs, channelizing devices, barriers, pavement markings, and/or work vehicles and extends from the first warning sign to the END ROAD WORK sign.”

The “highway” is a public roadway used by the public and the “construction, maintenance or utility work activities” are public works, not private. The official documents continue:

“SPEED CONTROL METHODS
Speed limit reductions in work zones are most effective when drivers perceive the need to slow down, (whether through noticeable geometric or work-related constraints on traffic flow) and when there is regular active police enforcement of the work zone speed limit. Arbitrary speed limit reductions erode motorist’s confidence in the need for reducing speed within a work zone. Traffic speed in work zones are generally lower, regardless of posted speed limit, when work zone conditions such as flagging, variable message signs, lane shifts, lane-width reduction, radar, and enforcement exist. Engineering, education/awareness, and enforcement measures are to be used to influence motorists, promote work zone awareness, and achieve safe work zone traffic speeds.” [emphasis provided]

“Engineering Measures
Incorporating engineering measures into work zone designs will encourage drivers to safely negotiate work zones. Warning signs, advisory speeds, positive guidance, width restrictions, channelizing chicanes, and use of intelligent transportation system technologies are examples of engineering measures that can be used to slow traffic traveling through a work zone.”

There are very specific guidelines in the state DoT manuals on how flagmen should perform their functions; of course, you’d never see them doing that in Coeymans!

“Enforcement Measures
Engineering and education/awareness measures can help reduce speeds. However, active police enforcement is the most effective measure to encourage motorist’s compliance with posted regulatory speed limits and other traffic regulations within work zones. Under the 2005 Work Zone Safety Act Regulation, police services will be provided to the extent practicable within major active work zones. The need for police presence and/or enforcement should be determined as early as possible during the project design phase. Police enforcement needed for maintenance type work zones will be coordinated as early as possible with the police agency and the Regional Traffic and Maintenance Groups. All effected [sic] parties should meet prior to any active enforcement within a work zone.”

Again, it seems, Coeymans has fallen flat on their fat arses! Who is going to pay for these tax-payer supported law enforcement services when the construction is private?!? Has the town board of Coeymans met with Carver Laraway to negotiate reimbursement for enforcement services during Carver Companies’ construction projects? Now there’s a good question to ask at a Coeymans town board meeting if you want to watch them squirm!

Who's Getting Paid? We know who's paying!

Who’s Getting Paid?
We know who’s paying!

And then we have the New York State law that is referred to in the “doubled fines” signs. But it should be obvious to our readers by now that posting that sign under the current circumstances is unlawful and illegal. Any town or village justice convicting and fining under these circumstances should be brought before the New York State disciplinary commission and disbarred!

Is this unlawful and illegal?

Is this unlawful and illegal?

Here’s what §§ 1180(f) Work Area Speed Limit has to say:

“NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law Section 1180(f) permits some municipalities not otherwise authorized to establish a reduced regulatory speed limit by ordinance, order, rule or regulation for construction or maintenance work areas.

Vehicle and Traffic § 1180. Basic rule and maximum limits. (a) No person shall drive a vehicle at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions and having regard to the actual and potential hazards then existing.

Regarding construction sites § 1180 (f) reads:

“…when a lower maximum speed limit has been established, no person shall drive a vehicle through a highway construction or maintenance work area at a speed in excess of the posted work area speed limit. The agency having jurisdiction over the affected street or highway may establish work area speed limits which are less than the normally posted speed limits; provided, however, that such normally posted speed limit may exceed the work area speed limit by no more than twenty miles per hour; and provided further that no such work area speed limit may be established at less than twenty-five miles per hour.”

“Every person convicted of a violation of paragraph two of … subdivision (f)… of this section shall be punished as follows:

(i) Where the court or tribunal records or enters that the speed upon which the conviction was based exceeded the applicable speed limit by not more than ten miles per hour, by a fine of not less than ninety nor more than three hundred dollars;” [Editor’s note: This is double the normal fines.]

But again, it must be clear that these provisions do not apply to private projects like Carver Companies’ bridge construction, unless the town of Coeymans has taken steps by temporary ordinance, order, rule or regulation to give Carver Companies special consideration in terms of a temporary work zone speed limit. But the town of Coeymans and the Coeymans town board have no authority to amend state Vehicle and Traffic law at their convenience to threaten motorists with unlawfully doubled fines!

Once again, the amateurs running the town of Coeymans may have set themselves up for more legal problems if any action is taken against drivers based on the above. Coeymans taxpayers, get ready to foot the bills for the lawsuits when they start coming through.

We think it's illegal and unlawful!What do YOU think?

We think it’s illegal and unlawful!
What do YOU think?

RCS is Disgusting! Good only to complain but no balls to do something about the liars and cheats!

RCS and Its Elected Officials Shame Themselves Before More Than 250,000 Readers! Right here on the Smalbany Blog. Even on national media!

GaGa Gibson

GaGa Gibson

Chris Gibson, asking for relection votes and opposing the “Pink Obama” Sean Eldridge, Shamed His 19th Congressional District and Himself by not Fully Investigating the RCS Anti-Military Bias and Disrespect for the National Guard. The RCS scandal made Fox News and other National Media but Gibson didn’t catch it. He promised to investigate fully. Did he? And what about Paul Tonko of the 20th Congressional District, also representing part of the RCS school district? Are they all Pinko’s? If that’s the choice we have for leaders we ought to all be suicidal!

He Died So You Could Speak, Participate in Your Democracy! Don't Waste His Sacrifice! Don't Waste Your Freedoms!

He Died So You Could Speak!
Did You Participate in Your Democracy?

RCS Wasted His Sacrifice! You Wasted Your Freedoms!
RCS Showed Itself to Be Ungrateful and Cowardly on October 14th! What do you all plan to do now? In future?

Your Elected Officials Have Successfully Excluded You From Participation—
And You Sit Back and Let It Happen!

They do this in many subtle and sometimes unlawful ways: They hold secret meetings, they quietly (very quietly) invite the public to “public” hearings, they sometimes lie outright. But Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk’s elected officials have found a far better way to do their mischief: They schedule important meetings on the same day at the same time but in different places far from each other to ensure that you can’t make both, even though you have a civic obligation, or a personal interest in attending both. Pretty clever, right?

Well, it’s up to you, citizens, residents to stop that despicable violation of your rights! Tell them to coordinate village of Ravena, town of Coeymans, and RCS Central School District board of education meetings so that you can attend all or any of them, if you’d like. They must be on different days, at least! But do any of you have the balls to bring this to the public meetings and demand fairness? Apparently not.

On Tuesday, October 14, 2014 Both the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk board of education meeting and the Coeymans town board meeting both held at 7:00 p.m. Pretty stupid, right. And YOU were effectively prevented by your elected officials from attending two very important public meetings, or forced to attend one while missing the other. But most of you decided to do something other than exercise your rights…Can you even remember what that was? Probably not.

Why you needed to be there, and why you should have been there but you lost the opportunity to be at both. Why? Because you allowed them to exclude you and you still do nothing about it!

 

RCS high-school principal Tom DiAcetis, Superintendant Alan McCartney's Education

RCS high-school principal Tom DiAcetis, Superintendant Alan McCartney’s
Idea of Education

First of all, ALL VETERANS, PARENTS OF VETERANS, SUPPORTERS OF VETERANS, and all members of veterans committees in local government (Did you hear that, New Baltimore? Mr Guthrie and others?) should have attended the RCS board of education meeting on Tuesday October 14, at 7 p.m. at the A.W. Becker elementary school. You didn’t! You should have put Mr Tom DiAcetis, Mr Alan McCartney and the entire board of education on notice that their scandalous conduct concerning the National Guard and our Armed Forces would not be tolerated and they shamed this commuity. You didn’t! You should have demanded the resignation of Tom DiAcetis and Alan McCartney. You didn’t! You should have denounces the RCS board of education for their anti- military bias. Did you? NO! You didn’t! You not only didn’t take any prisoners you threw down your guns and ran! You swallowed their mealy-mouthed, pablum-puking lies and stupid excuses…hook, line and sinker. You let them off the hook this time—AGAIN! They’re accountable but you make them immune. AGAIN! RCS is DISGUSTING!

Colonel Chris Gibson United States Congressman

Colonel Chris Gibson

Mr Chris Gibson, Congressman for the 19th Congressional District, and Mr Paul Tonko, Congressman for the 20th Congressional District represent us in this RCS Central School District. Both needed to be held accountable and both needed to proactively investigate the RCS scandal perps, DiAcetis and McCartney, and both needed to reprimand the RCS board of education for the RCS anti-military scandal that embarrassed this community nationwide! Gibson and Tonko are up for re-election and Gibson, at a recent New Baltimore Republican Club meeting assured residents and voters that he would have his office investigate immediately. He assigned his top aid, Kevin Cumm, to head the investigation. UPDATE: He apparently didn’t do what he promised to do. We ask you: Did Chris Gibson dishonor his office, his district and his uniform? Same should be asked of Paul Tonko!

The Town of Coeymans town board was meeting at the same time, on Tuesday, October 14, 2014, at 7 p.m., in the Coeymans town hall. Anyone who was not at the RCS board of education meeting should have made every effort to be at the Coeymans town board meeting. You needed to find out about the pending lawsuits challenging the half-baked re-zoning done by the town of Coeymans (started when Tom Dolan, Tom Boehm and Dawn Rogers had the majority on the town board. Did you let them fool you into thinking it was all done by Flach and his new majority, like they’re trying to do! Looks like you did. A New York state court judge found the re-zoning to be illegal but that hasn’t stopped the Coeymanazis from doing what they please and ignoring YOUR VOICES!

 "DoDo Cop" Darlington sharing some misinformation.

“DoDo Cop” Darlington sharing some misinformation.

Former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington abruptly jumped ship like the rat he is. He abandoned his department, his staff, the town of Coeymans and us! Gregory Darlington shouldn’t have been honored by the town of Coeymans for his dishonorable conduct and his selfish, irresponsible abandonment of his post. Darlington cowardly abandoned his post and his community! If Darlington didn’t have enough respect for this community, who paid for his fat ass, to tell us directly of his plans, this community doesn’t owe him a thing! (While we’re paying him a fat pension check, we think he’s going to be moonlighting in a second job, hired by our impotent race-card flasher Albany County District Attorney Pudenda David Soares. Then DoDo Darlington can sit next to his wife, who is a secretary in Soares’ office. Nice and cozy!) If Darlington could do that to the Coeymans police department, this community had a responsibility to itself and to its children to seriously reassess the situation and seriously consider eliminating the Coeymans police department, and turning over law enforcement to the professionals, the Albany County Sheriff’s department and to the New York State Police. Save Coeymans more than $a million$ in tax money that can be invested in things we really need in this community. You’re paying twice, three times for law enforcement in Coeymans. Let’s see if we can get some leadership and pay only twice. (Let the Albany County Sheriff’s department or the New York State Police rehire the Coeymans police department staff, retrain them, deploy them if they’re really needed.)

But you allowed the ball-less wonders on the Coeymans town board to pay homage to the ineffective, cowardly Darlington and you allowed them to present him with a retirement badge so he can continue flaunting the law, so he can continue to be the scofflaw out of uniform that he was in uniform at your expense. Why didn’t you raise the roof when they did that, Coeymans? Sorry! We overlooked the fact that you’re a town of sheeple. Sorreeee!

Albany County has a highly sophisticated 911 emergency response system in place, and it’s paid for with your tax dollars! Coeymans has a bunch of insiders using antique equipment that has to be updated. Ask the Coeymans town board how much the equipment update is going to cast you?!?  Be smart and tell the Coeymans town board to eliminate the dispatchers and save almost a $half-million dollars$. We’re paying twice for the same service. We’re duplicating services. There are some who want to continue this stupidity and they come out to give their idiotic reasons why. But the voice of reason shouts out for them to shut up and get the facts. Tom Dolan, Tom Boehm, Mary Driscoll and others are blowing misinformation out their butts. Tell the town board of Coeymans to eliminate the dispatchers (Let Albany County re-hire them if they’re really needed.) Weasel Peter Masti is pandering again and talking about getting facts. You’re eating that up to like a bunch of starving dogs. Read the facts on this blog because you’re not going to get them from the Coeymans town board and least of all from that rodent Masti!

No fatalities. YET!

No fatalities. YET!

Again, we STILL have to address the dangerous situation existing with the Port of Coeymans heavy truck traffic, and we need some real facts and explanations about the Carver Companies bridge and what the town is doing to ensure our safety and the safe movement of traffic into and out of the hamlet of Coeymans on Rt 144. AND we STILL have to get some honest answers from the Coeymans town board. Not the lies and smoke and mirrors response they gave to one resident who asked some burning questions on October 14th. Where were the rest of you complainers? (Don’t tell us you were at the BoE meeting, because you’d be lying!)

We also wanted to know about all the jobs that were promised. We STILL want an answer to that one. Did you ask? How many have been created so far? How many are actually going to be created?

We want to know why our quality of life is all of a sudden declining with the added truck traffic, the dust, the increase in noise pollution in our community as the result of the re-zoning and the increased activity in the Port and the surrounding area. Mr Peter Masti, who is neither a native of the area nor a blue collar worker, has published his desire to keep Coeymans blue collar. Why is that? (Masti and his kind have to go!) But these are questions Ravena-Coeymans residents have to ask. Masti’s a blow hard and goes wherever the wind blows him. He’s a jellyfish! But has anyone confronted him and his vomit publicly? Where were you all on October 14th?

That’s why you had to make every effort to attend the Coeymans town board meeting on Tuesday, October 14, 2014, at 7 p.m. in the Coeymans town hall! Our local elected officials don’t seem to be able to make good decisions on their own. They needed your help. You needed to tell them them what you want! You needed to tell them to stop the lies and you needed to get the true facts! You failed us, your community and yourselves!

We suggested you make a couple of phone calls, send a couple of e-mails. You needed to get your family, friends, neighbors activated and organize yourselves so that some of you could have attended one of the meetings and the others attended the other meeting. Did you show your elected officials that you could shake things up and put their feet to the fire, so they do what’s best for US! Did you? We think NOT! There’s still time and opportunity to pick up the pieces. Start now and make your preparations to organize your and your family’s, your neighbors’ and friends’ participation in the upcoming village of Ravena and town of Coeymans board meetings, and the RCS board of education meetings.

Business as Usual or Change for the Better: Vote Now!

 


Village of Ravena Elections for mayor and two village council seats will be held on
Tuesday, March 18, 2014.
Why wait? At the end of this article you can vote for our candidates of choice for seats on the Ravena Village Council, or make your own recommendations. Help Save Ravena!


Our Worst Fears Were Confirmed:
Bruno, Case, and Persico Are Running Again!

Bruno, Case, Persico to Run Again!

Bruno, Case, Persico
to Run Again!

You Can Stop Them!

Tucked neatly away in the Ravena News Herald is the news we’ve all been waiting for…like the plague: Ravena mummy mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno, Martin “Marty the Loser” Case, and Rocco “Seatwarmer” Persico have the gall to run again for village of Ravena public office. They apparently haven’t done enough damage to the village of Ravena and want a second shot at it!

Incumbent Ravena Mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno and his monkeys in Ravena Village hall have done their best to put Ravena into bankruptcy in every conceivable way: Secret deals with CSX (and then making believe they fixed things by planting a couple of trees), problems with sewerage, defaulting on village bills, creation of an illegal and failing Ravena Health and Fitness Center, persecution of local youth and teens, violations of protected civil rights, suppression of free speech, crooked financial transactions with insiders, handing out jobs to favorites, abusing the community institutions, and the list could go on and on and on.

Ravena Needs Alternatives!

According to documents we’ve managed to get our hands on: The Notice of Democratic Caucus has gone out…that’s where the democrat candidates would normally be nominated…but the caucus is to be held at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, January 27, 2014 at the Ravena Fire House, 116 Main Street Ravena. But the candidate have already been selected, at least according to the last issue of the Ravena News Herald. The three incumbent monkeys—Bruno, Case and Persico— are running again. UNLESS Ravena democrats show up and speak out to nominate alternatives. Lord knows Ravena needs alternatives!


Sidebar:

In the Meantime a New Warner-Deluca Scam

Bruno's Vixen

Have you heard? It must be election time! The Village of Ravena has recently sent out letters to “selected” “Main Street Property Owners” and “merchants” (Are there any left on Main Street?!?) but neglects other Ravena property owners and  residents having a stake in the future of the village of Ravena. The letter is inviting those selected property owners and “merchants” to attend a roundtable discussion and planning meeting to “revitalize” Main Street. What’s wrong with the rest of Ravena? You might well ask. But guess who are the contact persons for this “Centennial Committee”! Insiders, of course: Someone has put Cathy Deluca of Ravena Health and Fitness Center fame in as “Centennial Committee Chair,” and her sidekick, mayor Bruno’s “biatch”, Nancy Warner has been installed as a “Centennial Committee Member,” and sign the secret letter.

 When was this Centennial Committee established and with what village resolution? Who are the other members of the so-callled Centennial Committee, or is it just the dirty duette, Deluca and Warner?

Cathy Deluca Note the ARANY Sweater! (No Special Interests Here!)

Cathy Deluca
Note the ARANY Sweater!
(Probably wearing CSX panties, too!)

old blond stripper smIf you read this and suddently red flags go up and you have an anxiety attack, and feel overly suspicious, you really ought to. Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner are the very ones who met behind closed doors to secretly spend more than $40,000 of taxpayer money to buy used fitness equipement from another insider. They, Bruno and Warner (Deluca already was promised the job as director of the fitness center) harassed the RCS Community Library out of the space that was decided to accommodate the fitness center, and then allocated more than $105,000.00 of taxpayer money to fund the fitness center for the 2013-2014 budget year. In the meantime, Bruno and Warnerand their sockpuppets on the Ravena village council, Case, Bailey and Persico, went ahead and appointed Cathy Deluca as “director” of the fitness center paying her $30,000 in salary plus generous benfits. We believe the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, like two of Deluca’s other fitness businesses is a loser. Even before the fitness center opened, Cathy Deluca opened her big mouth and got the village of Ravena a couple of new lawsuits (Remarkably, this legal situation was reported in the Ravena News Herald!)!Ravena Mayor John Bruno and his monkeys Martin CaseWilliam Bailley, and Rocco Persico, also joined forces with Nancy Warner in persecuting Ravena-Coeymans youth and teens in the “Gazebo Fiasco,” again attracting another Notice of Claim and lawsuit for violation of protected rights and civil rights. Bruno and Warner ultimately forced the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activities Center to close its doors when they convinced insider Robert Fisk not to renew the Center’s lease. In shortl, they threw Ravena-Coeymans youth and teens out on the streets, screwed a local do-gooder, and created another distressed property on Ravena’s Main Street. 

Now they, the Insiders Club in Ravena Village Hall, want to reinvent themselves as the Ravena Centennial Committee, headed by two arch-villains Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner, to “rejuvenate” Main Street Ravena. They’re the very ones who made Mainstreet Ravena a ghost town! And who’s going to pay for this “rejuventation?” We predict that this is just another smoke-and-mirrors scam that will benefit only the Ravena Insiders Club and no one else. If you fall for it…

Bovine bimbos Deluca and Warner, the so-called Centennial Committee are even so arrogant that they ask “invitees” to R.S.V.P. by January 27, 2014 (the telephone number given in the letter to call to R.S.V.P.: 756-5544, the number to Cathy Deluca’s Playpen a.k.a. the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center!!!).

The Ravena Centennial Committee Mainstreet Revitalization farce will meet on Thursday, January 30, 2014, at 5:30 p.m. in the Ravena Village Courtroom. Please note also that the time, 5:30, on a Thursday has been selected because it will ensure that the fewest possible working people will be able to get to the farce. That’s one sure way of eliminating a good portion of the community. And these two trollettes are supposed to orchestrate a Centennial livestock show? Moo! To you, too, Deluca, Warner!

Ravena Centennial Committee Deluca & Warner

Ravena Centennial Committee
Deluca & Warner

We say any Centennial Celebration is a public affair from the planning to the execution. Any Ravena Main Street Rejuvenation is a public project and the public, not just a select group of property owners and merchants, selected by Guess Who!?! Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner! Any committee should be made up of public representatives not just Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner! How dare they make Ravena and its village Hall their private playpens! How dare mummy mayor John Bruno hand over Ravena to those two aging vixens to be their private sandbox. How dare Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner exclude thepublic from their little party…AGAIN!!! (Remember the Ravena Health and Fitness Club fiasco!) Those two middle-aged megalomaniacs need to be put in their proper place!


 It’s Official: CSX

We knew it! They're CSX!

We knew it! They’re CSX!
Official Confirmation by 2 RHFC Members.

Back to alternatives….

Anyone who has been following this blog and reading our articles knows that we know what’s going on in this region. We watch, listen, receive intelligence, and report to our readers what they won’t get in the local sockpuppet media like the Ravena News Herald, the Greene County News, the Daily Mail, the Albany Times Useless. and others (most notably of the Johnson Newspaper Corporation and Hearst Corp.).

Our most recent poll confirmed several very important facts: The John Bruno regime is nearing its shameful end, and the Coeymans Police Department’s days are numbered (is that why Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca is allegedly planning to retire at the end of the month, or is that just empty rumor? But why is he driving a RCS school bus?]

Coeymans Republican Party Chairperson Barbara Cumm has been sitting on her thumbs for too long and maybe the Republican Party should replace her before she does some real damage. We know the three flying monkeys are running again on the dem ticket but what are the Ravena Republicans doing all this time? We haven’t heard of any potential opponents to the Bruno mob from the Republican side. What’s the big secret? (We all can expect Tom Dolan to fall on his face again, as his past performance as a dem candidate and dem chairperson have been less than glorious.)

[Editor’s Note: We would recommend that the Republican Party name Barbara Cumm as Republican Party Chairperson emeritus, and get a real chairperson on board who will shake things up in Coeymans. So far Cumm has been dozing off and playing senile political games in the area. Retire Cumm and get someone with some cojones on board to clean up the Coeymans political scene. Stop playing a loser’s game!]

The Bruno mob seem to think they have the democrat ticket in the bag; the Republicans are quiet as mice. But we don’t care about labels like democrat or Republican; we care about what’s happening in the community, and the damage that the Ravena regime under Bruno and Warner have inflicted through their greed and nastiness. So we looked at the situation and looked at a couple of local figures who are honest and community-service minded residents who should be drafted to fill the seats in Ravena Village hall. Here’s your chance to vote in advance and let your voice be heard. The Bruno-Warner mob hates these choices, which makes them even more desirable. If Bruno and Warner hate you, you must be honest. Perhaps you’ll influence the outcomes in a positive way.

Help Save Ravena!

Help Save Ravena!

Vote below in each of the polls. It’s anonymous and you will be able to vote only once. Your vote counts here, too!
Once you vote in the polls below, click on “View Results” (bottom left corner of each poll) to see the overall results!

Are you a Dem or Rep, or Other?

Ronald K. Houghtaling Jr. for Mayor. A very experienced, articulate, former Coeymans town supervisor, who can make good thing happen! Mr Houghtaling knows his way around government and business. He also knows how dirty the local politics is and still keep his hands clean. Vote here for Mr Houghtaling for Ravena mayor.

Laszlo Polyak for Ravena Councilman. Mr Polyak is a local resident and property owner who has been an outspoken advocate in defense of RCS CSD students and local property owners’ issues, as well as a crusader for honest, accountable government. Mr Polyak’s credentials are impressive, too. The Coeymanazis hate him and have done everything they could to stymie his bids for public office in the past. Mr Polyak has an unparalleled knowledge of Ravena and the players, and their histories. If the Bruno mob  hate him and fear him so much, he belongs in Ravena village hall!. Vote here for Mr Polyak for Ravena village councilman.

Michael Fisher for Ravena Councilman. Mr Fisher is a local resident, parent, property owner and, if you’ve been awake through all of the hullabaloo about the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and the persecution of Ravena-Coeymans youth and teens at the hands of Bruno and Warner and the present village council, you’ll know that Mr Fisher is a self-less community-spirited individual. He serves on the Coeymans rescue squad and fire department and invested untold personal resources to get Ravena-Coeymans kids off the street, and into a safe, supervised recreation center. That all ended when Bruno and Warner did their worst to sabotage Fisher’s efforts and works, and the Coeymans police (Deluca and Darlington?) played their intimidation/retaliation games.

Bruce Roberts for Ravena Councilman. Mr Roberts already has experience on the Ravena village council but was unseated by insider action. He held the trusteeship now abused by Nancy Warner.

Finally, Vote Here to Make your Choices for Ravena Mayor Known!

Finally, Vote Here to Make your Choices for Village Council Seats Known!

(The percents in this poll show the voters’ first choice (highest percent), second popular choice, and third popular choice in descending order of percents. The percentages must add up to 100%. These figures do not show the percent of total votes the candidate would receive, just his popularity in terms of percent.)

Please note that none of the “candidates” proposed above have not been consultated about their willingness to ru,n or even if they would run. We drafted them because we feel they’d do well and the community would benefit from their experience and integrity. With your help, we can work to convince them that they should respond to the community’s invitation to serve. Of course, if you have other recommendations, please let us know and we’ll be pleased to post them and get our readers’ inputs regarding your choices, too!

The Responses Don’t Look Good for the Coeymans Police Department
Or for Mayor John T. Bruno and His Mafia Mob in Ravena Village Hall!

Yer History! Bruno Bunch and Coeymans PD Given Thumbs Down in Poll

Residents Give Thumbs Down for Coeymans P.D. and Ravena Mayor John T. Bruno!!!

Because of the holidays we left the “Tell Us What You Think” poll up for an additional 2 weeks, a total of 6 weeks, during which residents could share what they thought on a number of local issues. In the first 24 hours of the poll residents were very energetic in responding and we received 278 responses in those first 24 hours. At 72 hours we already had 417 responses, and by the third week the poll had received 517 responses. The holidays distracted many people and the final two weeks of the poll yielded a final total of 656 responses. That’s about 10% of the entire population of Coeymans and about 20% of the entire population of New Baltimore in rough comparison. According to the locations reported by responders, though, 80% of responses came from the Ravena-Coeymans area and about 14% came from New Baltimore area. The remaining approximately 6% of responses were likely from the town of Bethlehem, Selkirk, Feura Bush, etc. Because the responses were anonymous there’s no way to tell for sure.

Eliminate the Coeymans Police Department and Leave Law enforcement to the Albany County Sheriff and the NYS Police…

Large Majority of Residents Say: Get Rid of the Coeymans P.D.!

Large Majority (76%) of Residents Say: Get Rid of the Coeymans P.D.!

The majority (76%) of Ravena-Coeymans residents responding to the poll questions about the Coeymans police department think that law enforcement in Coeymans should be provided by the Albany County Sheriff and the New York State Police. A very similar majority (75%) say that the Coeymans police department should be eliminated outright. The RCS CSD superintendent Alan R. McCartney and his teacher-loaded board of education put Coeymans police in our RCS schools but 67% of residents responding to the poll want the police out of our schools. and less than 1-out-of-five respondents think we need the police in our schools. The message that residents are sending is clear: a high majority of residents responding to the poll do not want the Coeymans police department in our communities and would rather have the Albany County Sheriff’s deputies and the NYS police handling law enforcement in our communities. (This is a no-brainer for residents in the Town of New Baltimore who are already being served perfectly well by the Greene County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police!)

The Majority of Respondents Say NO! to Mayor John T. Bruno and His Crew of Critters

biz-woman-thumbs-down Ravena-Coeymans residents who responded on the survey clearly have had enough of the Bruno-machine in Ravena and the surrounding area. 66% of residents want “No more Bruno, Warner, Case, Bailey, Persico in Ravena.” That’s a very encouraging figure because if Ravena mayor John T. Bruno were to run today, he’d lose by a crushing landslide. Marty Case was the warning of Bruno’s unpopularity (but Case won his seat on the Ravena village council only by a margin, so he’s not an undisputed good example of popularity. That’s for certain!) Besides, there’s the unhealthy partnership between John Bruno and Nancy Warner that is like a cancer in Ravena. And then there’s the rift between Bill Bailey, Bruno’s whipping-boy-clown, and mayor John Bruno (But then, mayor John Bruno has no self-respect, how can he respect anyone else?).

A majority of residents (54%) think that Ravena mayor John Bruno should take a hike…a long hike. Those residents feel that Ravena mayor John Bruno should resign and apply for assisted living—in Alaska. But then, even Alaska might be too close for some residents. Only 6% (less than 1 resident in 10) think that mayor John Bruno is doing a good job. That’s really pitiful but those of us who have eyes to see and ears to hear know exactly why so few residents are Bruno supporters. That’s why he has to rely on the incest club and the crooks on the Ravena village payroll to get elected.

Now that we’re on the subject of why mayor John Bruno and his hatchet woman Nancy Warner are so hated, let’s look at two examples in the survey: the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center. These two examples clearly show the character or lack of character of the occupants of Village Hall and their crooked croneys.

And YES! The Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center is now closed, barely after a year of operation, only because Ravena mayor John Bruno, Ravena councilwoman Nancy Warner, and elements of the Coeymans police department made it their personal agenda to make certain it didn’t work. But what they failed to consider in their evil plan was the fact that although the Teen Center is now closed, it remains a living symbol of the Bruno era of negativity and destructiveness, and indifference to the interests of the community. The Teen Center continues alive and well as a symbol, even more powerful than when it was fighting for its life and for local teens and youth! The symbol of the Teen Center and the maltreatment of the RCS Community Library join the long list of Bruno-Warner failures and corruption in Ravena.

Thanks! Cathy Deluca: Another Faiure!

We’ve already published volumes of truth on the misuse of public funds by the Bruno-Warner-Deluca conspiracy, and how the public was kept out of the discussions. We’ve already pointed out the incestuous relationships between the Bruno village hall and the Coeymans police department, where fatness queen Cathy Deluca’s husband, the corpulent cop Dirty-Hands Jerry parks his double-wide butt (but he’s now allegedly parking buses in the RCS central school district transportation department as a part-time bus driver! How in hell did he finagle that one?) How many jobs are the Ravena-Coeymans insiders going to hog and deprive residents of the opportunity to work? We’ve already reported how Cathy Deluca already closed two privately owned fitness centers and how the Village of Ravena has tried to get her special treatment with the Civil Service Commission so that she gets non-competitive status in a civil service job created for her! But the fact that more than $105,000.00 of Ravena taxpayer dollars were budgeted for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center for insider reasons we all know well does not explain Why? $0 dollars and 0 support was allocated to the youth and teens of Ravena-Coeymans. Nor does it explain why Josephine Biscone-Bruno (Prudential Real Estate) and Robert Fisk, both Ravena village hall insiders, sucked a local philanthropist, Mr Michael Fisher, into taking over the now ugly and empty building at 170 Main Street, Ravena. Nor does it explain Why? after approving the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center Bruno and Warner went on a relentless campaign to bad-mouth the Center and to persecute Ravena youth. It’s all history now because Bruno and Warner and the cowards around them, indirectly assisted by the dolts in Coeymans town hall at the time, with no support from the Coeymanazis in the Coeymans police department (Was it because the kids were going to the Teen Center rather than kissing cop ass on the athletic club? Or was there a murkier, more sinister reason?)

Neglected Teens and Youth

Neglected Teens and Youth

down youth silhouetteIn our survey, 68% of residents responding wanted to “Save the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activities Center” and only 15% felt that Ravena-Coeymans didn’t need the Teen Center. That’s a pretty big difference and when you really think about it, what kind of people would deny the teens a safe and supervised place to go and stay off the streets!?! Another question would be: Where were the 68% when mayor John Bruno, Nancy Warner, and the Coeymans Police were harassing and intimidating the kids when they were at the Teen Center?

It’s heartbreaking but true that Ravena village hall and Coeymans town hall, together with the persecution by the Coeymans police department brought down a great idea but invested absolutely nothing in it. Neither the village of Ravena nor the town of Coeymans invested a single cent in the Teen Center. But Ravena village hall invested an awful lot of time farting around and backstabbing to make sure it disappeared. What did they provide to fill the void? What did they do to give the kids a place to go in the village of Ravena, the hamlet of Coeymans? You know the answer, parents, grandparents. Why don’t you tell the kids why you didn’t open your mouths or your wallets? Shame on you all. But more shame on the 68% who thought that the Teen Center should be saved and didn’t do anything to save it. You could have done that easily with at least 68%. You could have kicked Bruno’s and Warner’s butts but instead you threw the kids in, and got real low to kiss butt. Proud of yourselves?

As for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center residents of Ravena, at least, proved again that all sheep don’t go to slaughter on four legs, some actually walk on two legs. All of Ravena-Coeymans bent over again for another Bruno-Warner quickie and let Cathy Deluca and the Coeymanazis stick it to them, while Bruno, Warner and the Delucas sang all the way to the bank. Why is that? How did that happen, we ask you? How could that have happened when 68% of poll responses think that “the Ravena Health and Fitness Center is an illegal joke”?

thumbs-down young biz guyHow is it possible that (1) the village of Ravena created the Ravena Health and Fitness Center without public inputs and without a feasibility study of the need for such a facility, (2) hired an insider, Cathy Deluca, and friends to run the place, (3) allocated more than $105,000 to run the place, (4) approved $30,000 plus benefits to pay Cathy Deluca, (5) set rules for using the “public place” to exclude anyone under 18 years of age (the very kids who were going to the Teen Center), (6) made the Ravena Health and Fitness Center a “political/private” club by making it very clear that some local residents were unwelcome there, and the list goes on and on! How is that possible when such a large majority, 68% of residents responding to the poll think the Ravena Health and Fitness Club is an “illegal joke”? How is that possible when only 8% of residents responding to the poll think that Ravena needs the Fitness Center. And if 8% of the residents responding think that they need the illegal joke of a so-called Fitness Center, why is it that 0%—YES! You read right: ZERO—are members of the Fitness Center or have a family member who is a member of the Fitness Center.?!?! (That’s about right because whenever we check the parking lot at the Fitness Center it’s pretty empty. And what are the local churches doing with the Fitness Center possibly stealing people away from the church-sponsored programs, like zumba etc.?)

We repeat: 68% of responders think the Ravena Fitness Center is an “illegal joke”; only 8% think we need the Ravena Fitness Center, and 0% of responders are members or have a family member who is a member of the Ravena Fitness Center. So does it really make sense that the village of Ravena gave the RCS Community Library such a hard time and evicted the library for the space for the Fitness Center? Does it really make sense to have paid more than $40,000 of taxpayer money to purchase the used fitness center equipment from insider Robert “Bob” Fisk? Does it really make sense to have allocated more than $105,000 of taxpayer money to fund the Fitness Center? Is it really fair that a local insider, Cathy Deluca, should have been appointed to run the place after already running two fitness centers to failure? And does it make sense to appoint Cathy Deluca, an insider and close friend of Bruno and Warner, to be director to the tune of more than $30,000 plus benefits? Apparently the majority of aware readers, 68% percent of you don’t think so! So what did you or are you going to do about it?

That brings us to a very revealing part of this report: In the local general elections this past November 5, 2013, voters finally took a firm stand on bad government and crooked elected officials. In Coeymans voters gave Tom “Bigmouth” Boehm and Dawn “Dizzy” Rogers their walking papers. They affirmed their trust in Supervisor Stephen Flach and rejected Ravena mayor John Bruno’s puppet, Martin “Marty” Case. Coeymans is safe.

In addition, by a huge margin—not unexpected, of course—voters rejected the idiotic candidacy of Dawn Maddage, who was totally unknown and unqualified for the Coeymans Town Clerk position. As expected, the popular, experienced, respected Diane Millious was re-elected. That must have been a crushing disappointment for sitting town democrat councilman Thomas E. “Tom” Dolan, who really screwed up the democratic tickets, after having suffered a pitiful defeat in his own bid for a NYS senate seat. Dolan chairs the local democrat committee—The question is: How much longer is the dork going to be allowed to corrupt local politics and get away with it. Even a penile implant wouldn’t keep his approval ratings up!

New Arrival Baby 2014 Gives a Thumbs Down to Ravena Regime!

New Arrival Baby 2014 Gives a Thumbs Down to Ravena Regime!

2014 is an election year for the village of Ravena. The writing on the wall indicates that there’s going to be a big change in Ravena, too. That is, only if voters don’t allow the corruption and favoritism to take the vote away from the voters.

Think of it this way: 85% of residents responding to the poll reside in the village of Ravena or Coeymans. 80% of respondents report that they voted in the November 2013 elections. Do the math. Look at the trends in the respondents’ responses. Now figure out what direction the village of Ravena and other local communities are going to go.

Say what you will about this blog, the numbers and the responses speak for themselves. 82% (with a high of 97%) of responders say that they “get more information from this blog than from local news media.” We’d take that one step further and say that local residents get more true information on this blog than they’ll ever get from local news media. That’s common knowledge., but 72% of responders say that they rely on this blog for truthful information about the community. 79% of responders say that this blog is an important community resource. 75% of responders say that they would “gladly do business with a business that supports this blog.” That’s good to know because although we have never asked for financial support of our work, and work it is, we may need to offer advertising slots to cover expenses. After all, we still have to pay $0.25 a page for documents FOILED from local government and $10.00 for every CD containing recorded minutes, police interviews, or public meetings. It all adds up to a tidy sum. Our time and gas is also not subsidized by any additional income.

All good has a negative side to it and to be complete we have to report at a whopping 17% of responders think this blog is useless. Makes you wonder why they even bother reading it, let alone take the time to respond to one of its polls. Go figure!

100% of residents responding in the poll said that they answered the poll questions honestly and seriously. We believe that and thank all 656 responses for taking the time to answer our questions and to let the community know what such a large number of residents representative of our community are thinking.

 The Good News

As of January 1st, both the Town of Coeymans (Albany County) and the Town of New Baltimore (Greene County) now have new leadership and new majorities. It looks very good for those two towns, and our hope is that they will put their heads together, and perhaps even involve the Town of Coxsackie (Greene County), to stop the bickering and stalemates and get things done in the interest of the residents and taxpayers of those communities. We hope that the voters in the Village of Ravena (Town of Coxsackie, Albany County) will see the light at the end of the long dark tunnel that the former town councils and the present village government has painted very, very dark, indeed. We hope that the voters in the Village of Ravena, supported by their neighbors in the Hamlet of Coeymans will fumigate village hall on Election Day 2014, get rid of the cockroach infestation there now, and finally install a village team that will not badmouth and fingerpoint but will foster and nurture inter-community cooperation. Once that is done, intercommunity groups and action can step in and take the Bruno-Warner ghost town and resucitate it to become a colorful, inviting,vibrant community with a real heartbeat. The new administration in New Baltimore can now take charge and put New Baltimore on the map not as a community that digs up its natural treasures and buries its traditions, but one that truly serves its residents, fosters neighborliness, and preserves the traditional values of work, faith, fairness, family and loyalty. The Town of Coeymans can come a long way by cleaning up its own corruption now that some of the vermin have been removed from the community pantry. But there’s much work ahead and real smart governing and negotiation that has to be done soon before the enthusiasm wanes, and support for major change recedes. There’s excitement in the air…and true hope in hearts. Don’t disappoint us. After all, this blog is not really about “Thumbs Down” but about “Handshakes” and we and our readers are on the spot to make sure those gestures of friendship, community, and cooperation happen. Please do your part to make 2014 a year of prosperity and positive change!

Make it happen!

Make it happen!

Top Secret: Two Coeyman Cops, Idiots, Really, Suspended

Two Coeymans Police Officers Send Sheriff’s Deputy on A Wild-Goose Chase, Get Suspended

Coeymans Police Department/Albany County Sheriff Keep Public in Dark

Somebody in Town Hall: Turn on the Lights!!!

Somebody in Town Hall:
Turn on the Lights!!!

Seems security isn’t a big thing with former Coeymans Police Department Lieutenant Kerry Thompson, now Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple’s “assistant chief deputy,” after he had been recalled apparently following the incident where Coeymans police officers Danielle Crosier and Peter McKenna got into some mischief on Thompson’s Sheriff’s Department laptop, which Thompson stupidly neglected to secure.

Apparently, the Coeymans police department has so little to do when they’re not executing illegal search warrants issued by short-order-cook town justices or worse, and the cops have so little supervision when they have nothing to do while collecting your taxpayer dollars, that they have to perpetrate criminal activity themselves. So, the allegations go, ex-Coeymans ” deputy chief” and current chief of Coeymans police, Gregory Darlington’s brother-in-law, Kerry Thompson leaves his laptop unsecured and Danielle Crosier and Peter McKenna get the bright idea to play a little joke on the Albany County Sheriff’s Department. They log on Thompson’s laptop that is equipped with C.A.D. or Computer Aided Dispatch, a system you’ll find in most police cruisers these days (see below for more information), and from Thompson’s computer, dispatched an Albany County Deputy on a wild-goose chase. That’s not only ultra-childish, stupid, it’s also a crime even if two idiotic Coeymans cops do it!

Darlington

Darlington

So, why didn’t we hear about this before? Well, we all know that Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington gets away with murder and so do his faves in the department. Why do you think DoDo Darlington put Kerry Thompson, his brother-in-law, on the payroll as his “administrative assistant” for more than $31.00/hr while Thompson was already full-time in the Albany County Sheriff’s Department. Why did Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple allow this, anyway? We also know that Darlington’s wife works in the Albany County D.A.’s office. We also know that the Darlington-Boehm-Rogers-Dolan plan by funning (or running) Michelle Maddage to be Coeymans town clerk was to get Darlington’s wife a part-time job in the Clerk’s office. But voters put a stop to that plan. We also know that Darlington’s plan is to leave the Coeymans police department and join up with his wife in Albany County District Attorney David Soares’ office. Don’t you see the corruption piling up here?

Darlington has been bad news for Coeymans since the sick decision was made to put him in the chief’s office. Once there, he managed to f-up all of former professional chief Scott Giroux’s clean-up and sanitation work in the Coeymans p.d. One of the first stupid moves Darlington did was to re-hire two duds Giroux had fired: Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and Todd Polverelli. (The facts also indicate that Deluca and Polverelli were hired illegally, not in compliance with civil service law. Same applies to Danielle Crosier. How and why was she selected to be the RCS CSD police presence in the high-school? We’d like a statement on that information.) It went downhill from there.

Backward and Downhill

Backward and Downhill

Back to the playful duo Crosier and McKenna. Well, when the perps were found out, Thompson suspended both Crosier and McKenna. But get this: Crosier got only a week’s suspension, while McKenna got a month! Why the discrepancy? You might well ask. Seems the rumor is that Thompson and Crosier had a little thing. So that must have played into Mr Thompson’s real professional and objective evaluation of the seriousness of the crime. But why no criminal charges? Just suspension? With pay? Are the Coeymans police above the law?

Or have we so quickly forgotten just a couple of special treatment cases, like:

  • woman pointing fingerKerry Thompson’s son’s theft and vandalism of campaign signs. Disappeared!
  • How about Kerry Thompson’s other delinquent son (is he the dispatcher at the Coeymans p.d.?) who took down mailboxes while speeding; never charged. Disappeared!
  • Kerry Thompson’s refusal to take a harassment complaint by a local woman (but taking the complaint of the same harasser against a local official and prosecuting it!)
  • Dawn Roger’s daughter’s multiple DUI’s.  Disappeared!
  • Tom Dolan’s son’s drug-related incidents. Disappeared!
  • Harassment charges against Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and Matt Miller. Disappeared!
  • Obstruction of justice charges against DoDo cop Gregory Darlington. Disappeared!
  • Investigations against Cathy Deluca for falsely filing a report. Disappeared!
  • Failure to investigate/obstruction of  justice by Dirty Hands Jerry Deluca  felony charges (Scott Lendin). Disappearied!
  • And many others, still DISAPPEARING

Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple Gets an Egg Facial Courtesy of Darlington, Thompson, Crosier & McKenna

You might also ask where Thompson’s bosses, Apple and Darlington, were when all of this was going on? Well, Darlington probably had his head up his arse as usual, monitoring what’s going on in the town clerk’s office upstairs—or, more likely, he was collecting his paycheck while playing Mr Mom at home. Craig Apple, Albany County Sheriff, was probably trying like hell to figure out how to get Thompson out of the Coeymans police department without coming off with egg all over his face.

So, Thompson’s embarrassed as hell by Crosier and McKenna. Two Coeymans police make asses of themselves, commit a serious crime, and get suspended (McKenna, it seems, just can’t seem to stay out of police trouble. He got fired from the Albany Police only to be hired by that jackass Darlington!). Darlington’s on another planet, as usual. Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca’s off to the side with psycho-cop Ryan Johnson sniggering. This is the Return of the Living Brain-Dead to Coeymans!

OK, Craig & Bill, Come Clean: Are these facts true?

OK, Craig & Bill, Come Clean:
Are these facts true?
Do you think if we citizens or the media call them we’d get the truth?

So what does Craig Apple, Albany County Sheriff, do? Well, he doesn’t waste any time in setting up a plan to get Thompson out of Coeymans real quick. He “promotes” Thompson to a desk job as “assistant chief deputy” in an elaborate dog-and-pony-act at taxpayer expense, so that it looks like he needs Thompson back in the Sheriff’s department to fill this “important” desk job. We reported on this silly smoke-and-mirrors act in our article (click on this link to read it), Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple: Has the Apple Gone Rotten? The whole thing was so obvious only the mind of a law enforcement person would be dull enough to think the public would swallow that rancid oyster.

After that, Kerry Thompson resigns from his position with brother-in-law Darlington and moves back home to the Albany County Sheriff’s Department so that Apple can keep closer tabs on him and keep him out of trouble. It’s absolutely scandalous, incredible that all of this is being paid for by taxpayer dollars!

Why are we kept in the dark?!?

Why are we kept in the dark?!?

This was all discussed, apparently, in a closed-door executive session by the Coeymans town board and kept real hush-hush because it was just before the elections and just before the big Böhm-Darlington-Thompson special press conference on Coeymans’ phony drug busts and the fabricated drug problem. That failed, too, and Boehm and Rogers lost their town board seats. Puts Darlington and the Coeymans police department in a real scary place right now, because Tom Boehm, Tom Dolan  and Dawn Rogers were the only thing separating Darlington and his criminals in uniform from the door and the street! Come January there should be some major changes happening. But the public was unfairly kept in the dark while Darlington, Boehm, Dolan and Rogers were promoting psycho-cop to sergeant, and giving that lunatic a pay raise. Criminals at play, it seems.

Our questions: Why are Crosier and McKenna still in uniform? Why are they still on the payroll of the Coeymans police department? If these facts are true and they did illegally access Thompson’s laptop and did actually send a Sheriff’s deputy on a wild-goose chase, why weren’t criminal charges pressed and a public investigation launched? What right does the Coeymans town board and the Coeymans police department have to keep the public, the taxpaying public in the dark? Why does the generally law-abiding, hard-working, honest resident and taxpayer have to pay for these dregs and then be subject to their abuse, too? Where was the media when all of this was happening? Where is the media NOW?

What right does the Coeymans town board and the Coeymans police department have to keep the public, the taxpaying public in the dark?


What is C.A.D.?

police computer

Computer-aided dispatch, or CAD, is a system used by police and other emergency response dispatchers to log, track and assign calls for service. Once performed with a notebook or laptop  computer, a punch-card and a file cabinet, CAD systems allow duty officers and law enforcement officers to check on for service, respond to calls, input call data and access call history almost instantly. This allows officers to get much-needed information faster and reduces radio traffic. It also allows police supervisors to better monitor their subordinates and manage the work load of the shift.

The CAD is also the system that stores reports, notes and basic information after a call for service is completed.

The Mobile Digital Computer or MDC / Mobile Digital Terminal is the computer program that allows dispatchers and law enforcement officers to communicate between each other in “real-time”.

Basically, dispatch receives a 911/non emergency call requiring Police response. The dispatcher generates a “CAD card/event/case number” and types the information related to the call into their computer. Dispatch “sends” the “call” to the responding Officers “MDC”. The Officer reads the “call card” hits a “key” to show “en route” and then “on scene.” After handling the “call”, the Officer enters whatever pertinent information (could be a two sentence disposition or a full report) and sends the completed “CAD” entry to the main “database”.

Thats the only way we know to explain it, however the system allows MUCH more than just receiving calls, etc, it is also used to “run” registrations,licenses, warrants checks and numerous other LE related “applications”.

The actual “acronym” for different agencies will differ also. We have only heard of the systems being called “CAD”, “MDC (Mobile Digital Computer)” and “MDT (Mobile Data Terminal)”, but we imagine they all work very similarly.

It’s obvious that these systems can be abused by the simple-minded and by criminally minded law enforcement personnel who have other agendas and are willing to break the law and the rules of confidentiality to obtain privileged information. (Right Jerry Deluca?).


Of course, we’d like very much to hear back from anyone in the Coeymans Police Department or the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, or the Coeymans town board with a statement or an explanation for the facts reported here. We would really like to know if any of the facts need to be corrected to represent the truth. Unless someone from the Coeymans P.D., the Albany County Sheriff’s Department or the Town of Coeymans comes forward with a denial or a correction or even an explanation, we’ll have to presume these allegations all to be true.

The Poll is Still Going Strong!

 

Get Rid of Bruno, Coeymans P.D.!!! Poll Responses Overwhelming!

Get Rid of Bruno, Coeymans P.D.!!!
Poll Responses Overwhelming!

Now, in its 3rd week, we’ve almost doubled the responses from our last report: We’ve gone from 278 responses to 517 responses. To put this in some perspective, about 1900 Coeymans residents voted in the last elections on November 5th, 2013. Our 517 responses represent 27% of the entire number of votes in the last town of Coeymans general elections. That’s an incredibly good response and certainly represents a reliable trend among local residents.

That figure gets even larger when we consider that many of the people who voted on November 5th don’t even use computers. Furthermore, even if they are computer users and follow this blog, most are passive readers; this means they visit, read and leave, some occasionally leave a comment, but not much else. So the 517 responses we have received a people in the town of Coeymans who feel very strongly about what they’re voting on.

But in all honesty, we have to consider that some responses may come from people outside the area who have an opinion on what is going on in the town of Coeymans and the surrounding area. Perhaps they live in the town of Bethlehem but their children attend RCS schools or they have friends in the RCS area. Some responses may come from the the Town of New Baltimore, but New Baltimore has less than half the population of the town of Coeymans and less than ¼ of the responses come from the town of New Baltimore. It’s also unlikely that someone living in New Baltimore would respond to a question about Ravena but even if they did, it’s still a good indicator of what people think of the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans. So take if for what it’s worth.

The Analysis

Numbers Don't Lie

Numbers Don’t Lie, Bruno Does

First of all, 100% of respondents say that they answered the poll questions honestly and seriously. That’s good.

This blog continues to get very high marks with 87% of respondents saying they get more information from this blog than from the media. 85% feel that this blog is an important community resource. 77.5% of respondents rely on this blog for truthful information about the community. and 65% say they would gladly do business with a business that supports this blog. Needless to say, we’re very happy with these figures. Still, 17.5% feel that this blog is useless.

According to the responses received regarding Ravena mayor John Bruno and his flying monkeys, Nancy Warner, Martin Case (lost his bid in November for the town of Coeymans supervisor position), Rocco Persico, and Bill Bailey their time is getting really short. 65%  want no more Bruno, Warner, Persico, Case or Bailey in Ravena. 52% want to send mayor Bruno to Alaska, and only 7.5% think tht mayor Bruno is doing a good job. Byebye Bruno!

Flying-Monkey-We expect that after the recent revelations of the Bruno-CSX betrayal of Ravena residents, especially those on Magnolia Drive, that Bruno’s and his flying monkey’s ratings have plummeted even further. Especially after that comedy of a village council meeting and Bruno’s unabashed lies and the village trustee’s absolute ignorance. Yes, people, that’s an embarrassing bunch!

As for the town of Coeymans Police 80.0% of respondents say that the Albany County Sheriff and the New York State Police should provide law enforcement in the town of Coeymans. A whopping 75% of respondents want to eliminate the town of Coeymans police department.

70% of respondents want the police presence out of our RCS schools. Only 17.5% want to keep the police in our schools. What do you think? Take the poll.

We expect these Coeymans police department figures with skyrocket when we publish the story about how Mrs Darlington pushes out a pup and then goes back to work at Albany County DA Soares’ pigpen, while Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington stays home and babysits his new pup. Yes, Coeymans has a police chief is a stay-at-home mom but he’s doing it on taxpayer dollars. Question: Is he taking personal time, vacation time, sick leave to stay home? Likely not.

We have a story in the making that reports how two Coeymans police department employees got hold of Kerry Thompson’s official laptop (it was allegedly left unsecured in Thompson’s unlocked vehicle) and the perps sent an Albany County Sheriff’s deputy on a wild-goose chase. Craig Apple, Albany County Sheriff, almost immediately removed Thompson from the Coeymans p.d. and gave him an assignment at the Albany County Sheriff’s department, a desk job, a sort of demotion-promotion. The two Coeymans police officers, Danielle Crosier and Peter McKenna got temporary suspensions—Crosier got a week and McKenna got a month— they should have been fired. It was all discussed in “executive session,” that is, behind closed doors but our informant has the details and you will, too, very soon. What do you think of law enforcement officers involved in such stupidity?

87.5% of respondents say that no decisions should be made by the town boards until the new town boards take over. This is still very high but down 8.9% from the last tally. At this point in time, the lame ducks on the boards probably won’t get anything pushed through anyway. But any raises and promotions passed should be critically reviewed by the new boards in January.

Then we have Cathy Deluca’s payoff playpen, you know the one that mayor Bruno and his flying monkeys allocated more than $100,000 of Ravena tax dollars to support while Bruno and Warner were evicting the RCS Community Library, and working so hard to destroy the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center? Well 67% of respondents still consider the Ravena Health and Fitness Center to be “an illegal joke!”  And 0% still say that they or a famly member use the RHFC! How’s that for wise decision-making as far as your tax dollars are concerned, Ravena residents? Cathy Deluca probably loves the idea but she’s cashing in at the rate of $30,000 a year in salary plus very generous benefits. This is all happening while more and more buildings are going empty and CSX is cutting down residents’ trees for a second rail line nobody but Bruno and CSX knew about. You GO! Ravena!

Nancy Warner Sends Season's Greetings from Mayor Bruno Those aren't Christmas trees in the background!

Nancy Warner Sends Season’s Greetings from Mayor Bruno
Those aren’t Christmas trees in the background!

Speaking of the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center readers may have noticed that that building is now what is politely called “distressed property,” that is, mayor Bruno and Ravena village trustee Nancy Warner have succeeded not only in depriving local youth of a place to go for supervised and safe entertainment but they now have another empty building on Main Street, Brunoville. It’s big, ugly and empty. Congratulations! Mayor John Bruno and Nancy Warner, Marty Case and Bill Bailey, Rocco Persico! You’ve done it again! Killed something good and put another empty storefront on Main Street, Ravena.

hatchet figureRespondents, however, feel differently and it’s not good for the Bruno crowd: 70% of respondents vote to save the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center. The figures are very encouraging but unfortunately Bruno and Warner did their dirty work: the Teen Center is gone and the kids are still here, bait for the Coeymanazi police department, nowhere to go, nothing to do. All this happened while two RCS Central School District employees, Marty Case, a teacher, and Rocco Persico, a school psychologist, sit on the village of Ravena village council! A teacher and a school psychologist, sucking up school district money, figures who should have the best interests of the kids at heart and they support two mummies, Bruno and Warner, in killing the Teen Center and dumping the kids. No wonder Ravena is a dump, a ghost town, a cemetery! The didn’t allocate a single cent in support of the Youth Center but had more than $100,000 for a fitness center no one seems to want (except for Cathy Deluca and the Bruno-Warner pair).

The increasing numbers of responses give us a more reliable idea of what the Ravena-Coeymans community is thinking. The fact that respondents take the time to actually answer the question about “honestly and seriously” clearly shows that they feel it’s important to know that fact. This also means that if they are being honest and serious, they’re likely answering only those questions that apply to them. This, again, speaks in favor of the reliability of the figures.

It’s interesting that the respondents were in the early days of the poll most emotional on issues like the Coeymans p.d. and the Bruno regime when the respondent numbers were low but the percentages were high. Now we have more responses and the percentages are leveling out more. This would indicate that people with really strong feelings against these issues came out first and then more moderate readers reacted, and finally, the minority needed to go on the defense and start countering the overwhelming responses against the Coeymans p.d. and the Bruno regime. Even so, the percentages against the Coeymans p.d. and the Bruno regime continue to be overwhelmingly high and appear to want to hover there.

We have one week to go before we close down the poll and present the final figures. We urge our town of Coeymans and New Baltimore residents to participate and to vote so that your neighbors know how you feel. This is information that Coeymans and Ravena residents won’t be getting anywhere else and it’s important in view of recent developments and historic changes that have taken place in recent months.

An Open Letter to NYS Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman and FBI Special Agent in Charge Andrew Vale


Stop the Silence! End the Intimidation, Injustice, Abuse of Our Civil Rights!

For Months the Citizens of Our Communities have been Complaining to State and Federal Offices Literally Begging for Investigation into the Numerous Abuses being Suffered by Citizens in our Communities on a Day-to-Day Scale. Complaints to our local officials and public employees are ignored. Local law enforcement is corrupt and indifferent, frequently disposing of citizen and resident complaints on a whim or because the complaint is being made against a favored person, usually a political ally or a relative. While unlawful search warrants are being granted by our local ignorant village and town justices, our rogue police force executes them to gain political capital and to ensure their survival or the survival of their village and town council handlers. The local police and school officials focus on our children to retaliate against parents. The result is fear, intimidation, anxiety and abuse of rights. (See our articles: Coeymans: Tom Boehm Tries to Save His Political Ass, Holds “Press Conference” (Coeymans police Chief Darlington joins with local dems Tom Boehm and Tom Dolan to cop some political capital and dupe the press); Police State in Ravena-Coeymans? You’re kidding. Right?; Ravena-Coeymans Police State + Ignorant Town Justice = Treason!; More Coeymans Police Misconduct: We Want Answers!, and more, much more!)

Complaints to government agencies are an ongoing joke whether they go to the Department of Education, the New York State Comptroller’s Office, or the local office of the FBI. Citizens and residents cannot trust their local officials, their local police, and the Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares, is just as corrupt and entrenched in the politics and political machine to be rendered untrustworthy and ineffective, unless it’s as a tool for the very abuses and injustice he has taken an oath to defend us against, but fails to do so.

The situation has hit critical mass and we are fed up and unwilling to witness the continued abuse of our residents, the violation of their civil rights, the corruption of the democratic process. It’s time for action; time for ultamatums. Time to issue public demands to the New York State Attorney General, Eric T. Schneiderman, and to the federal law enforcement representative, Special Agent Andrew Vale.

Justice is Broken in Ravena-Coeymans and New Baltimore

Justice is Broken in Ravena-Coeymans and New Baltimore

An Open Letter to the New York State Attorney General

Eric T. Schneiderman
Office of the Attorney General
The Capitol
Albany, NY12224-0341

and to

The Special Agent in Charge, Albany Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation

Special Agent-in-Charge Andrew Vale
FBI Albany Field Office
200 McCarty Avenue
Albany, NY12209

Mr Schneiderman, Mr Vale:

We are directing this communication to you as the chief law – enforcement executive of the State of New York, to the New York State Attorney General, Eric T. Schneiderman, and the local federal representative of law enforcement serving this region and representing the United States Department of Justice, the Agent in Charge of the Albany office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Special Agent Andrew Vale.

Mr Schneiderman, we remind you that you are head of the New YorkState department of law, you as the state Attorney General are both the “People’s Lawyer” and the State’s chief legal officer. As the “People’s Lawyer,” you as Attorney General serve as the guardian of the legal rights of the citizens of New York, its organizations and its natural resources. In your role as the State’s chief legal counsel, you, Attorney General Schneiderman, not only advise the Executive branch of State government, but also defend actions and proceedings on behalf of the State and its people.

You, Mr Schneiderman, as Attorney General serve all New Yorkers in matters affecting our daily lives. Your offices, Mr Schneiderman, and the Attorney General’s Office generally is charged with the statutory and common law powers to protect consumers and investors, charitable donors, the public health and environment, civil rights, and the rights of wage-earners and businesses across the State.

You, Mr Schneiderman, have failed us and have failed in your mission to the citizens of Albany County, of the communities of Ravena – Coeymans, and of the town of New Baltimore. You have cast a blind eye to the corruption under which we are living, and are indifferent to the abuses committed against us. It would appear, Mr Schneiderman, that political interests have smothered our civil rights.

We remind you, Special Agent Vale that, according to the FBI website, “the mission of the FBI is to protect and defend the United States against terrorist and foreign intelligence threats, to uphold and enforce the criminal laws of the United States, and to provide leadership and criminal justice services to federal, state, municipal, and international agencies and partners.” The FBI’s mission explicitly includes combating public corruption at all levels, protect civil rights, as well as terrorism.

We remind you also that your core values include:[1]

  • Rigorous obedience to the Constitution of the United States;
  • Respect for the dignity of all those we protect;
  • Compassion;
  • Fairness;
  • Uncompromising personal integrity and institutional integrity;
  • Accountability by accepting responsibility for our actions and decisions and the consequences of our actions and decisions; and
  • Leadership, both personal and professional.

We are calling you to accountability, Mr Vale, because from where we are observing, you are failing in your mission and your core values! It would appear, Mr Vale, that political interests have smothered our civil rights.

While the Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares cannot possibly be unaware of the outrageous situations under his nose and perpetrated on his watch given the facts, for example, that on October 22 our statistics counter showed that the Albany DA visited this blog no less than 25 times! The Albany County DA spends outrageous amounts of time on this blog; for example,on October 24 (24 hour period) Soares’ office was on this blog a total of 21 hours 42minutes and 15 seconds, on  October 25 a total of 8 hours 5 minutes 9 seconds, on October 28, 8 hours 14 minutes 17 seconds! There is no possible way that Albany County DA P. David Soares could be unaware of the abuses of public office, the obstruction of justice, the civil rights abuses, the outright criminality that goes on in the Coeymans police department and elsewhere in these communities. But local officials like Ravena village justice Harold Warner (his daughter is an attorney employed in the DA’s office) and Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington’s wife (a secretary in Soares’ office), which may be a clue why Soares has failed in his oath, his obligations, his duties to his adopted country, the United States, and his adopted people, us Americans. (P. David Soares was born in Brava, Cape Verde, an island off the coast of West Africa. Soares comes from a culture where corruption abounds, civil and human rights abuses are routine, women are third class citizens. It’s no wonder Soares is a womanizer, unethical, a closet racist, and doesn’t quite get how we operate in the United States.) Soares is a cog in the wheels of the corrupt Albany Democrat machine, just like our corrupt local officials. (Source: Soares’ biography, “About David.”)

Has the Apple gone Rotten?

Has the Apple gone Rotten?

Even the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, under the command of another local boy, Sheriff Craig Apple, has its own skeletons. One of those skeletons is recently “promoted” Kerry Thompson, now Deputy Chief for law enforcement (is this a joke?) under Chief Deputy Paul M. Courcelle, Kerry, who is also lieutenant and “assistant” to Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington and — you really couldn’t make this stuff up — is married to Darlington’s sister!  (See our article: Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple: Has the Apple Gone Rotten?)

Even store chains like Trader Joe’s won’t allow a manager’s close family member to work in the same store! What’s going on here, we ask? There’s a word for this situation and behavior: INCEST!

There is no just, fair or ethical reason why the citizen/resident must individually go to the poorhouse by bringing private suit for public purpoes, when you, Mr Schneiderman, and you, Mr Vale, have the duty and responsibilities as set forth above, and are required upon notice to take law enforcement and prosecution action against public servants and officials who violate the law! It is our job to notify you of wrongdoing by our public officials and public servants; it is your job to follow up and to prosecute. Let’s not make any mistakes on these points. So get moving, gentlemen!

We Want It Stopped!!!

We Want It Stopped!!!

By way of prologue, we would like to express our extreme indignation and disappointment at your performance, Mr Schneiderman and Mr Vale, and pathetic state of awareness, despite the red flags sent up by local citizens, the media, and other indicators pointing to the deplorable state of government and law enforcement in this region, to wit: Albany County, the municipalities of Ravena – Coeymans and generally southern Albany county, and northeastern Greene county, particularly the town of New Baltimore.

Our main question is this: What are you doing in your positions? What are you doing to ensure the sanctity of the law, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, or the safety and wellbeing of the citizens who, in good faith, delegate to you their natural moral rights of autonomy, dignity, consent, common good, etc. If we are to rely on our experiences to date the answer to that question would be: pitifully little.

We are aware that your offices have been informed by individuals of the situation currently existing in the Ravena – Coeymans community with regard to the violations of rights, political corruption, obstruction of justice. We are also aware that your offices, if they are conducting their business ethically and diligently, should be aware of the decades – long history of abuses in these communities and the suffering of our residents. You should be aware of the discrepancies and deficiencies in fiscal responsibility and the corruption that is rampant in these communities. You should be aware if only you read the local media rags or monitor local news. Are you on this planet on a regular basis?

We citizens are all too aware of the fact that acting alone or turning to you as individuals is fruitless; you ignore us. You are indifferent to us. We are too small to waste your precious time on. Well, sirs, this is where your attitude is going to change. Now we are going public in a big way. Your wake – up call is here and now!


angry u betchaWe have had enough of your ridiculous branding of disgruntled citizens as “terrorists.” That’s not going to work any more. In Boston in 1773, a bunch of citizens were disgruntled and the result was the Boston Tea Party; In August 1776 (not on July 4th!) the majority of the delegates to the 2nd Continental Congress signed off on the Declaration of Independence. On April 12, 1861, a civil war started because of injustices. In 1848 the Liberty Party made women’s suffrage a plank in their platform and in 1920, women achieved the right to vote with the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. In 1964 the Civil Rights Act was passed. But with all that history of dissent, civil disobedience, and enactment of laws to prevent abuse of citizens, we sense that something has been lost along the way; our public servants and elected officials have become indifferent, even ignorant of the rights guaranteed by the sacred documents of American freedoms, the Constitution and its Amendments.


stop false arrest

Right here in this community our public servants, our law enforcement bodies are egregiously violating our civil rights and the laws of this state and this country. Our elected officials are egregiously and arrogantly indifferent to our civil rights and the laws of this state and this country. Our complaints and claims fall on deaf ears and our rights and recourse are ignored and we are disenfranchised by the high costs of legal representation and the deep pockets of the insurance companies hired by our own people, our own elected and public officials to defend them against us, the very people they have taken oaths to serve!

Our complaints and notices to you, the New York state law enforcement executive and to the enforcement agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation go ignored, or become part of an ongoing investigation file. Worse still, they are “investigated” and then dismissed, adding insult to the injury already suffered.

Any candidate with the courage to come out against the machines operating in our village, town and city halls is either silenced by boards of election that hide behind non – disclosure, secrecy, and protection of their confidentiality. If the candidate survives the challenges of the opposition and the corruption of the boards of election, they have to face the violations of their civil rights by local sign ordinances, or the hooliganism of campaign sign vandals and thieves, the criminal conduct perpetrated by their unprincipled lawless opponents, and the indifference or non – response of local law enforcement to their claims. The democratic process has become a farce; cliques are in control and citizens have been literally disenfranchised. The laws enacted by our local governments are facially unconstitutional and are being enforced by a local ignorant police department. We have become a police state, in other words.

Local democrat candidates steal, destroy, remove their opponents’ campaign signs with impunity! In the town of New Baltimore alone one candidate, Janet I. Angelis, running for a seat on the town council, went around and removed the signs of her opponents’ campaign signs and was idiotic enough to have delivered them to one of the candidates with a lecture! (See our article: New Baltimore Democrat Town Board Candidate Janet ANGELIS Caught Moving, Stealing Opponents’ Campaign Signs!) Again in New Baltimore, the Democrat candidates intimidated a local elderly widow to remove the Republican/Conservative signs from her property (The signs have yet to be recovered a week later!) (Read our article: New Baltimore. Now Intimidation of the Elderly: Take Down Those Signs!) And those are just two examples of recent occurrences in the town of New Baltimore in Greene County (Greene County DA: Terry Wilhelm (R), Greene County Sheriff: Gregory Seely (R)). These are blatant violations of protected rights, civil rights, violations of New York State election law, violations of criminal law and where are our local law enforcement officials?

Civil rights, protected rights, obstruction of justice, conspiracy, indifference, abuse of public office are conspicuously obvious and yet those in authority cast a blind eye on what’s happening to our American homeland.

Mr Schneiderman, Mr Vale we in the Albany, Ravena – Coeymans, and New Baltimore communities don’t give a whit about the apparent propaganda so urgently circulated about so – called sovereign citizens, about terrorist threats, about drug cartels and the like. We have our own hometown terrorists and our own hometown terrorism oppressing right here and now.

Mr Schneiderman, Mr Vale we accuse you of ignoring our complaints, our suffering. We accuse you of failing to protect the laws of the land and the protected rights granted by the United States Constitution and its Amendments. We accuse you of indifference to us!

This Open Letter demands your attention and action. This Open Letter demands your proactive investigation into these complaints. This Open Letter demands that you immediately do your jobs, the jobs that you are being paid by the taxpayers of this land to do, and to immediately bring the perpetrators of the injustices complained of to justice, and to bring justice and fair play, the rule of law, back to our communities.

We demand action NOW. This is no individual citizen requesting your attention to an injustice in a poorly drafted letter. This is a pubic demand calling you and your agencies out publicly to investigate, prosecute, and correct.

In the context of this demand we are attaching several documents that are illustrative of the abuses and criminality in these communities.

We are living in a police-state! We cannot turn to our local law enforcement because they are far too corrupt to do justice. Our own Coeymans police chief, Gregory Darlington, is incompetent and is a tool of such dirty cops like Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, rogue cops like Ryan Johnson, and tainted law enforcement like Albany County Sheriff Department employee, Kerry Thompson, and others as well as self-interested petty politicians like Thomas Boehm and Thomas Dolan! We cannot turn to our Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares because he is far too entrenched in the machine and far too compromised by his own surly ambitions and lack of ethics; in Albany county, the democrat machine has descended far to deeply in the mire of corruption to be of any possible use to its citizens. (Please see our article: Ravena-Coeymans Police State + Ignorant Town Justice = Treason!, Police State in Ravena-Coeymans? You’re kidding. Right? The other examples are too numerous to list here. We suggest a search of any of those names on this blog.)

Mr Schneiderman, Mr Vale, it is your indifference and the indifference of your predecessors and your handlers, as well as of the offices of the New York State Department of State and the Office of the New York State Comptroller, offices that go through the motions with their decisions and audits, but whose bite is gentle and toothless, whether by political necessity or by indifference, that has allowed this deplorable state of affairs to have reached this point of intolerability. It is up to you and your agencies to correct it forthwith and to meet your obligations to the citizens of these communities.

You cannot continue to ignore this situation. You need only to survey this blog to get the truth, to learn the real story straight from our citizens. We live in fear of retaliation, of discriminatory and selective law enforcement, of double –  even triple – standards, of cronyism, of public corruption. Our citizens are being abused, our laws are being broken, and our civil rights are being violated; we want something done NOW!

For the citizens of Albany County, Ravena – Coeymans, New Baltimore New York,

Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple: Has the Apple Gone Rotten?

On Monday, October 21, 2013, the first day of this post, the Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares, visited this blog a total of 24 times, spending a total of 3 hours 29 minutes and 35 seconds getting an education. Do you think we have them worried? It seems that not only Kerry Thompson, Jason Albert have nothing to do. The Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares spends almost half of his day on this blog! Can the bastid!


A reader recently advised us that Kerry Thompson, administrative assistant to Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington, was promoted to be deputy chief. We couldn’t believe what we were reading after all that was going on in the Coeymans police department involving Kerry Thompson, Gerald Deluca, Jason Albert and, of course, Gregory Darlington. We questioned how Coeymans would dare do something like that and the reader replied that she had read it on the Albany County Sheriff Department Facebook page. That was an irresistible bit of intelligence so we visited the Albany County Sheriff’s Department Facebook page and almost fell off our chair.


A Little History Lesson: Scott Giroux was a Albany County Sheriff’s Department captain at the same time Craig Apple was a lieutenant.  Scott Giroux was police chief when there was a Ravena-Coeymans joint police department, and Giroux was brought in to clean up the law enforcement mess in Ravena-Coyemans and to merge the two dysfunctional police departments. Having done that and proved his mettal, Giroux then went on to accept a position with the Federal Bureau of Investitation (FBI). When cleaning up the Coeymans police department Giroux fired a number of decrepit officers, inluding Gerald “Dirty-Hands Deluca,” but when Do-Do cop Gregory Darlington was elevated from useless sargeant to become Coeymans police chief, Darlington hired all the junko cops back, who Giroux fired during his cleanup. That’s the situation we have now. Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple is a local boy, from the RCS area, and rumor is that there is no love lost between him and the Coeymans police department. That raises some sticky questions: (1) What’s Apple doing with Kerry Thompson now? and (2) Now that Scott Giroux is with the FBI, why isn’t he — or is he — keeping tabs on the goings on in the Coeymans p.d., maybe waiting for the right moment to pounce? Could that be the reason Apple is calling Thompson back into the Albany County Sheriff’s Department with an “apparent” promotion. We say “apparent” because it might be the only way to get Thompson under control without excessive embarassment to the Sheriff’s Department.


Has Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple Gone Apple Sauce in the Brain?

Can't Thompson get a uniform that fits?

Has Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple Gone Rotten?

Doesn’t Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple Know What Thompson has been Doing in Coeymans?

Maybe Apple has forgotten that the position he holds as Albany County Sheriff is an elected position. Maybe he wants a very short career as an elected official. Maybe he’s been spending too much time around the likes of Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares. Whatever it is, Apple has probably made the worst decision of his career by giving Kerry Thompson any semblance of credibility. Or is it really as dumb as it first appears? Maybe Craig is not as stupid as this makes him look. Maybe there’s a strategy behind all of this to keep Thompson more closely under surveillance by putting him under Chief Deputy Courcelle, who can keep the mutt on a short leash?

Apple-Courcelle-Thompson

Three Stooges or Monkey-in-the-Middle?
Are Apple and Courcelle Boxing Thompson Up to Keep Closer Tabs on Him?
And why’s everybody smiling but Apple? What’s up Craig? Having a bad day?

If Thompson is being assigned to this new position for any other reason than to keep closer tabs on his rogue activities at taxpayer expense, it certainly isn’t because he’s such a great cop or because he has any ethics. We know that from his performance in Coeymans. He sucks.

But what we don’t understand is how Thompson, now employed at least part-time by the Coeymans police department as Coeymans police chief Darlington’s “administrative assistant,” is going to be able to give the Albany County Sheriff’s Department its money’s worth while doing the same for the taxpayers of the town of Coeymans. Seems like it’s an impossibility from where we’re sitting.

Thompson’s performance in Coeymans has been far from stellar…

Thompson’s performance in Coeymans has been far from stellar. Just count how many raids were botched up and how many search warrants were defective on his watch. And now he’s supposed to assist Chief Deputy Courcelle to manage law enforcement in Albany County? Just like that moron P. David Soares seems to manage to screw up everything he gets his idiotic hands on. All we can say is that Albany County Law enforcement is in as very sorry state, indeed, if Thompson’s going to manage in Albany like he’s managed in Coeymans.

Coeymans police department has really come under fire for its mismanagement…All on Thompson’s Watch

Perhaps it’s gotten too hot in Coeymans with all the scandal surrounding his hire in the first place. That was a bad move by the Coeymans town board and appears even worse now that the Coeymans police department has really come under fire for its mismanagement, its violations of civil rights, its botched up raids, the many scandals surrounding its employment of law enforcement dregs like Ryan Johnson, Gerald Deluca, Danielle Crosier, the botched up investigations and claims of obstruction of justice, and the list goes on and on and on. All on Thompson’s watch.

Moral Questions like his alleged toying around with Coeymans police department Barbie doll, Daniele Crosier

Conflicts of interest, like his marriage to Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington’s sister, and moral questions like his alleged toying around with Coeymans police department Barbie doll, Daniele Crosier, certainly haven’t helped the already very drab image of the Coeymans police department on his watch.

And speaking of conflicts of interest: Word on the street is that alleged Thompson squeeze, Daniele Crosier, was placed in her new FT position with the Coeymans police department on the conditioin that she pass an physical agility test (required by civil service).  She took the test the other day and guess who administered/oversaw it — Yes! You guessed it!  Kerry ThompsonThompson is allegedly not certified or qualified to administer the test so it should not have been authorized. On top of that fact this is yet another blatant conflict of interest.  And the big question is: Did she really pass the test? 

All of that information that would get someone canned in a New-York-minute if it happened in private sector doesn’t seem to faze Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, though.

Kerry Thompson can’t even seem to manage law enforcement when it comes to his own kids. We’ve reported on his one son’s recent reckless driving on Route 143 and destruction of a mailbox and damage to another care and how that was all kept quiet by Thompson (His kid’s a police dispatcher now in the Coeymans police department!). And we’re still hot on the trail of his other son’s escapades stealing and destroying candidates’ campaign signs, a crime caught on video by at least two neighbors. But all that means nothing to Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple or Chief Deputy Courcelle.

Or is Thompson raiding the evidence room? He looks like a cocaine addict with a heroin habit!

Has anyone noticed how much weight Thompson has lost in the past couple of months? Is the alleged fun-on-the-farm with officer Crosier that hot? Or is Thompson raiding the evidence room? He looks like a cocaine addict with a heroin habit! Or is he just plain sick? Is his new assignment a sympathy assignment? Don’t you think we taxpayers and public should some answers to these questions?

Whatever is the reason, we think it’s SCANDALOUS that Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple is making Kerry Thompson look like a saint! If the Coeymans town supervisor and town board continue to pay Thompson to be Do-Do cop Gregory Darlington’s office-boy-toy, then the entire Coeymans town board should be tarred, feathered, and shipped downriver on a leaky barge!

Now Kerry Thompson is going to help “manage law enforcement” in the Albany County Sheriff’s Department. Are we the only one’s who smell the stink?

We smell a coupleof skunks, don't you? The Editor
