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!

aww, you aren’t even close.

 FireGeezer, A Blog Dedicated to the First Responder/Firefighter Community, Recently Reposted Part of Our Article “Share Our Shock” on the Unbelievable Stupidity of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs and Their Decision to Hire Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca” to be the Association’s CEO/Executive Director. We posted a link the FireGeezer’s web site. No sooner had we done that than the rats left their dark holes and started their rants. Well, it didn’t take long for FireGeezer to figure out their agenda and POOF! all of their posts suddenly got deleted. That’s happening more and more to them lately and so it should.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “taunt” as “a reproach in a mocking or insulting style. This is a taunt.

Joke's On Sicko! BANNED AGAIN!

Joke’s On Sicko!
BANNED AGAIN!

 It’s ironic that as soon as the lunatic rants got deleted, so did Sicko’s identity. He’s* a nobody again!

[* We are using the pronoun “he” not because we think the Sicko is a male but because traditionally the grammatical “he” is used to mean both genders; today, thanks to the feminist agenda, the pronoun “she” is frequently used in the same way.]

WE WIN (AGAIN)—YOU LOSE AGAIN, LOSER

One of the sickos who apparently is desperate for attention wrote in a comment: “aww, you aren’t even close. Guess those close to you are going to betray you sooner than later.” That sicko is responding to our “UPDATE” on this blog in which we finger a local whacko as the one who posted the crazy rants on FireGeezer. But what the sicko doesn’t realize is that he or she is actually identifying with the psychopath we suspect to have written the stupidity on FireGeezer. It’s ironic that as soon as the lunatic rants got deleted, so did Sicko’s identity. He’s a lonely nobody again!

But to set the record straight, the sick minds who are so desperately trying to put a face on this blog, who are so desperately trying to vent their frustration about not being able to spew their venom, and hurt the community-spirited people reading and contributing to this blog, those same sociopathic personalities are actually shooting themselves in the foot. Here’s why:

First of all, those sickos are ignorant of the content of this blog. If they knew anything about this blog, they would know that on May 5, 2012, in the article a “A Little History Lesson“, everything they think that they are exposing was already thrown out there for everyone to read. Even the owner of the blog was identified. Yes! No guessing required. That article identified the blog owner! No secrets, readers. Everything was up on the front page since May 5, 2012—until they started getting really nasty.  But that article, “A little History Lesson” was there for everyone to read, and was until this morning (we password protected the page but you can request a password to view it. Just write us at rcs.confidential (a) gmail.com) That was done because it was all made up in sick minds, meaningless, already shown to be garbage, and the Editor wanted to get it out of the way, knowing that some dumbasses would want to drag it out and use it stupidly. That’s exactly what they did and are trying to do. But they failed, miserably.

Secondly, if they think that they have some special, secret information that they can use to discredit and destroy someone they repeat it over and over again, until they believe their own lies, and then attacking more and more innocent people. Apparently, they think that by doing that someone’s going to lose their cool and react. Not gonna happen. You see, those lies have been around so long and the stories, the tales have been told again and again that everyone, and we mean EVERYONE is sick of hearing them. So our advice to Sicko and his friends is: Get a life and a brain, stupid! You’ve tried this all before and it didn’t work then so why do you think it’s going to work now? It’s all old and uninteresting. People knew your agenda years ago and it didn’t work!

The most reliable sign of stupidity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. You’re a pitiful idiot!

The third point we’d like to make is this: You can’t fight hard facts by trying to kill the messenger, stupid! This blog goes to incredible lengths to get hard facts and information, and only then publishes the hard, true facts. You can deny them all you like but they are still there. Call us what you like but it doesn’t change the truth or the facts. But there is something you can do:

  • If you don’t like the Deluca stories, check out the facts and if you have a defense, send us the facts. We’ll be happy to print them.
  • If you don’t like the facts we publish on the Warners, send us facts that prove us wrong and we’ll publish them.
  • If you don’t like the facts about the Coeymans police department, send us the facts that refute our conclusions.
  • If you don’t like what we publish about the Village of Ravena and the Village of Ravena budget, show us in the budget what we got wrong.
  • If you feel that Ravena needs Cathy Deluca’s playpen to the tune of $105,000 a year when the Ravena Health and Fitness Center generates no revenues for the Village of Ravena, show us the facts and figures that say that Ravena needs the RHFC and that it’s worth the taxpayer dollars being wasted on it.
  • If you don’t like our exposés of the failing Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk schools or the teachers union or the board of education, leave a comment complete with facts and figures to rebut what we write. We’ll publish your comment.

You can’t fight hard facts by trying to kill the messenger, stupid!

You can’t do any of that and so you try again and again to kill the messenger by repeating your fairy tales and attacking even his/her family. Isn’t that a real cowardly way to try to prove your point? Well, it’s not working, stupid! All you do is get your ass kicked again and again. All you manage to do is get yourself banned from just another blog or website. Are you such a dumbass that you keep doing the same thing over and over again and get the same results? (Answer: YES!) See above for the “most reliable sign of stupidity.”

As we mentioned above, back on May 5, 2012, when we first published this blog, we actually published the very same things you continue to think are so important. In one of our first articles, “A Little History Lesson,” we went public with all of that slander and libel—by its very definition unfactual and false—; in the first week that this blog was published we had already published your stupid lies ourselves. Why? Because we wanted the world to know what stupids like you would probably come up with, thinking it was so significant, but we tripped you up by having put it out there right from the start. We beat you to the punch you idiot but you don’t even know that! And you think that because you post the same crapola and put one of your many fake names on it or use one of your many fake e-mails, that it’s going to be news. Please see above for the “most reliable sign of stupidity.”

Accept the Fact that you and your kind are losers! And in denial!

Accept the Fact that you and your kind are losers! And in denial!

Look, Stupid, we have established ourselves as highly reliable, strongly factual, reality-based, journalism-quality reporting. We publish only reliable and verifiable information, most often getting the facts under the provisions of the New York State Freedom of Information Law directly from the very public entities we are reporting on. If you think you can do better, please do. We’d love to see what you come up with.

We get more than 10,000 readers a month and in the next couple of weeks we’ll have a quarter of a million readers (250,000 readers). And that’s not even counting the readers from FaceBook and other social media, or the visitors referred to the site by email or by our many registered followers! People trust us and believe in us. We earned that trust by being honest and factual. We risked a lot by publishing this blog and going after the powers-to-be but the information was too important not to get it out to the community. Instead of hiding in some dark place away from the retaliation and intimidation that was part of our neighbors’ day-to-day life we came out and went on the counter-attack. We sent the real rats scurrying for their holes but smoked the bastards out again. We’re still doing that and will continue to do it until they’re all in a cage. The community is grateful and says so repeatedly. We have changed elections and changed the way our friends, neighbors and readers think. What have YOU done, stupid?

People like you make us all feel like geniuses.

People like you make us all feel like geniuses.

The very site on which you tried but failed to discredit us independently picked up on our article and asked many of the same questions: Who is Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca? That first-responder/firefighters website asked the same questions we did and agreed that there were questions, even rebuttals that had to be made. Did anyone rebut the real facts or refute them? No! Deluca didn’t and the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs didn’t either. Why? Because they couldn’t rebut or refute the truth, the facts.

Neither can you so you resorted to your old tricks. Whether you’re a Joan Ross, a Cathy Deluca, a Jerry Deluca, a Nancy Warner, a Tim Houghtaling, a Scott Horne you’re all the one and the same: cockroaches. And your methods are all the same. Please see above for the “most reliable sign of stupidity.”

So, that’s that. Save your energy. What you think is an ace is from an old marked deck, a very old, very worn out cheat’s deck. No one’s interested in your puffed up fantasy stories, your half-truths, your slanders or your libels. You get banned every time and you’re only building a case against yourself.

Why you don’t just accept our good advice to stay on topic, be truthful, state true facts, and stop wasting everyone’s time trying to put a face on this blog. You won’t be able to do it and it’s totally unnecessary. No matter who is writing this blog it won’t change the facts. The truth will continue to be true no matter who writes it.

Instead of hiding in some dark place away from the retaliation and intimidation that was part of our neighbors’ day-to-day life we came out and went on the counter-attack. We sent the real rats scurrying for their holes but smoked the bastards out. We’re still doing that and will continue to do it until they’re all in a cage.  What have YOU done, stupid?

Like rats driven by the bait in a trap, you are driven by your greed and hypocrisy to take another step into your depravity, until, like the unfortunate rat, you snatch at the bait and SNAP! … you know the rest of the story.

DEFINITELY REJECTS: THE LOCAL CANDIDATES YOU DON’T WANT


This is probably the most important article this year!
Copy it, post it in public places, hand it out, give it to relatives, friends, neighbors!
Send this link to all of your e-mail contacts: http://wp.me/p2jPFe-1UC


THERE ARE JUST SOME CANDIDATES THAT ARE DEFINITELY REJECTS. THOSE CANDIDATES DON’T EVEN NEED A SECOND THOUGHT FOR VERY OBVIOUS AND CONSPICUOUS REASONS. YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO LISTEN TO THEIR EMPTY PROMISES AND THEIR CAMPAIGN LIES. YOU JUST KNOW IN YOUR GUTS THAT THEY AREN’T REAL, THEY AREN’T RIGHT.

HERE ARE OUR PICKS FOR DEFINITE REJECTS

The ones you need to avoid on Election Day, November 5, 2013

The Few Local Candidates Who Are Definite Rejects Stand Out So Conspicuously This Year it's easier to point them out than it would be to go through the qualified candidates.

The Few Local Candidates Who Are Definite Rejects Stand Out So Conspicuously This Year
it’s easier to point them out than it would be to go through the qualified candidates.

The fact that local candidates for public office and their supporters have resorted to some pretty dastardly and underhanded ways of “campaigning”, most of them unlawful, illegal, and criminal, leaves us with no other choice than to weigh the merits and make some honest evaluations. We can’t have people in public office who don’t play fair! It’s ridicuolous to put people in public office who have no respect for civility or for honesty! It’s even criminal for voters to put candidates who scoff the laws and are involved in criminal acts in office!

We’ve reported on local candidates stealing or removing their opponents’ campaign signs (New Baltimore Democrat Town Board Candidate Janet ANGELIS Caught Moving, Stealing Opponents’ Campaign Signs!), local candidates intimidating elderly residents to remove opponents’ campaign signs from their property (New Baltimore. Now Intimidation of the Elderly: Take Down Those Signs), family members of local law enforcement officers vandalizing campaign signs and the local officials keeping it all secret (Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple: Has the Apple Gone Rotten?). Our town halls are populated with fascists (O’Rorke, Angelis, Jordan, Schrauf, Benway, Norris: Fascist Enemies of Local Democracy). We’ve also reported on Tom Boehm, whose campaign is failing, cooking up a so-called “press conference” together with Coeymans dodo police chief Gregory Darlington (Coeymans: Tom Boehm Tries to Save His Political Ass, Holds “Press Conference”), to get some media time and to shine (not that it helped him much), only to find the entire charade backfired on him. Those are not the types we need in public office. These are examples of the types that are destroying the Constitution and America from the inside out! Voters need to clean house, a clean sweep, exterminate the cockroaches!

We Need To Make A Clean Sweep of Town Hall
We Need To Make A Clean Sweep of Town Hall

Johnson Newspaper Corporation, RegisterStar, Catskill-Hudson Newspapers Co-operate in the Deceit!

And then there are the local politically controlled media like the Catskill-Hudson Newspapers, including the Ravena News Herald, the Daily Mail, and the Greene County News, who refuse to publish candidates’ profiles together with the opposing party’s (Utterly Stupid…Or Utterly Conspiratorial. Stupidity should be painful!).  And Yes! we did catch it: The Catskill-Hudson Newspapers editors even played a sneaky switcheroo by reversing the positioning of the incument and the contender on the page (the incumbent normally has the left side, while the contender has the right side for very good reasons psychologically). Absolutely Un-American, but true!

Then we have the local politicos and public officials who are so base and immoral that they take nitwits and manipulate them to run for offices they know damned well they are not qualified for. If those politicos and public officials do that to their “friends” what should we expect from them when it comes to dealing with us? Yes, were talking about Coeymans democrats running twitty Michelle Maddage for Coeymans town clerk and New Baltimore running twitty Diane Jordan for New Baltimore town clerk. What are those people thinking? Duh!

pionee spiritYou Can’t Be Indifferent Once You Read This Blog. You Either Love It Or Hate It. And We Know Exactly Who Hates It.

The two features that characterizes the Blogger and the freedom-loving Americans who contribute to this blog either by writing, commenting, or sending in leads for stories are good old American pioneer spirit and courage. Yes. A pioneer spirit that dares to push the frontiers, to test the mettle, to challenge the powers and the elements. And courage. That virtue that draws the line between cowards and sheeple and those of us who are not afraid to call a crook a crook or to confront a corrupt cop or politician, or to challenge an illegal law. We don’t suck anyone dry. We don’t kick you when you’re down. We don’t pick on kids and old women. We call a spade a spade and shout “Screw P.C.” We tell it like it is!

We are the real Americans in word, deed and spirit.

Do You Have Any?

Do You Have Any?

And what about the rest of you. You eat away your denial and depression. You approach 400 pounds and then cry you have no benefits to cover your heart disease and your diabetes–yours and your fat kids’. Or you isolate yourselves in closed groups or gated communities emphasizing the fact that you’re detached and isolated from the real world. You go to the polls knowing little or nothing about the people you elect and you don’t ask or demand to know. Or you do know them and you’re voting not because they’re good but because they share your own corrupt and misguided ideas about life and society—most of them greed-driven. You go to church on Sunday and promise love of neighbor, and leave church with a strategy on how to screw the living life-blood out of your neighbors on Monday. You close your eyes to the evil around you and so become complicit in it and an accessory to the very crimes and abuse you complain of.

you witness violation of civil rights and scuttling of democracy in your front yard without a whimper

You scream civil rights and democracy but you witness violations of civil rights and scuttling of democracy in your front yard without a whimper, and then beat the war drums when it comes to some distant land you can’t even locate on a map if you had to do so. Democracy begins at home, you know; here it’s long dead so we try to reinvent it elsewhere…and fail.

Americans Have Become The Pussies And The Bullies  Of The International Community

Everyone knows there’s a Constitution and a Bill of Rights but hasn’t a clue what they mean. Sure, all you gun-toting, law-abiding hunters and “sportsmen” scream bloody murder when it comes to your Second Amendment “rights” (that’s the “right to bear arms” one, you know) and are Gung ho!  when it comes to shooting a helpless wild animal or at a painted target; but you’d likely shit your guts out if confronted by a 250 pound 6 foot hairy Syrian with a slingshot, though. Americans have become the pussies and the bullies  of the international community (fact: bullies are really pussies) thanks to the abuse they get at home by their lying, cheating so-called elected officials and law enforcement (fact: bullies were/are victims of abuse). By the way, how many of you overweight armchair heroes out there were ever in uniform, cops included, and we don’t mean a Hot Shops uniform, or a Halloween police costume (Yeah! You! Gregory Darlington and “Dirty-Hands” Jerry Deluca.) And we don’t mean those of you who play the macho Latino superhero…you know, the National Guard desk jockeys who, underneath the macho walk and talk, are pink little pussies.

How Many of You are Pink Pussies?

How Many of You are Pink Pussies?

How many of you actually walk the walk and talk the talk of real liberty, spirit, and American community? Not many from where we’re standing. And you know it’s true. So, what are you going to do about it? Probably get really pissed off at this blog because it’s telling it like it is. AGAIN, STILL. Or are you going to wake up, smell the coffee, and do something about it? Are you going to admit that your Coeymans police department is inefficient, corrupt, even criminal and demand…DEMAND PUBLICLY, that is, that the Coeymans town board take the rudder and do some disciplining and firing. Demand that the Ravena village board and the Coeymans town board remember who elected them and why. Demand hat the town board stop playing cookie-jar to the Coeymans police and stop feeding the money pit they’ve created. How about some transparency—and a new police chief who doesn’t threaten the town clerk’s employees when they obey the laws of New YorkState because doing so might expose Gregory Darlington and Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and others in the department for the thugs and criminals that they are.

Ravena News Herald/Times Useless Reporter Looking for a Story

Ravena News Herald/Times Useless Reporter Looking for a Story

Maybe somehow, if we all got together and demanded some accountability and some respect for laws in our village and town halls and in our police department we could, just maybe, become a real community instead of a backwater source of scandal for rags like the Times Useless. Maybe if the local “official newspaper,” the Ravena News Herald would print some real local news instead of love-fest reports and news from Schenectady, Rensselaer, and beyond. Maybe if the News Herald were not such a bunch of prostitutes they might even investigate some of the facts we publish and publish them, too. Wouldn’t that be a welcome change? Truth, reality, and real facts in the Times Union and News Herald. Maybe we should say NO! to our village and town hall becoming a family business instead demand a center for excellence in small-town government.

Have a Look a the Real World Outside of Your Constricted, Selfish, Individualistic, Materialistic Pin Heads

This Community Has Become a Bunch of Pinheads

This Community Has Become a Bunch of Pinheads

Do you even know how many of our local official’s sons, daughters, cousins, buddies are actually working in their friends’ and relatives’ departments in the village of Ravena or the town of Coeymans? How many are being given jobs at taxpayer expense and you don’t even know that the village or town is getting them civil service status unlawfully or by lying outright (Right? Mayor Bruno, Nancy Warner, Cathy Deluca). Do you know what that means to you? You will soon because we’re going to be publishing the incestuous connections, the favoritism, the croneyism that’s been festering right under your noses and has been insidiously making this Ravena-Coeymans area a ghost town, a cesspool of corruption, an asylum of denial and fear, just the place where people want their kids to grow up. Right? Maybe those of you who are members of the special clubs like Friends of RCS (Wadda joke!), Save the Arts at RCS, RCS Sports Association, RCS Friends and More should take a step out of the holy of holies of your special little groups and have a look a the real world outside of your constricted, selfish, individualistic, materialistic pin heads! Look around you! Breath the LaFarge air deep into your collapsed lungs! Take a ride down the pothole pocked streets or a swim in them during a heavy rain! Try to find the creeks and waterways your Coeymans code enforcement officer, Laverne “Larry” Conrad, and your local shyster, Michael J. Biscone, have buried and have evaded the attention of the NYS Department of Environmental Corruption! Your tax dollars at work, you know!

Take a closer look at the composition of your Ravena Coeymans Selkirk Central School District Board of Education. Did you really intend it to be a nest of self-interested, greedy bastards—most all BoE members are teachers or married to a teacher—who now have control of more than $40,000,000 (yes that’s millions) of tax dollars and how they pad their pockets by appointments of family members and friends? All this while the bullying and student-on-student attacks continue, per student costs are nearly the highest in the state,  and graduation rates remain the lowest in the state! Do you even know how many teachers or relatives of teachers are on your board of education. Or that the very man they cursed and defiled, interim superintendent Allen R. McCartney has no balls and now is a friend of the very people who vociferously demanded he not be hired? By the way, keep a very close eye on the board of education, they’re gradually crowding you, the public, out of the inner circle of information, making decisions behind closed doors without your knowledge and inputs. In other words, the RCS BoE is starting to operate on the corrupt model of the village of Ravena. We’re starting to believe the Ravena syndrome is an infection; the corruption started when the RCS BoE moved into the Ravena offices building, you know! Your tax dollars going into their pockets. How do you feel about that?

Your Coeymans police chief, Gregory Darlington, a mere employee of the town, has threatened the Coeymans town clerk’s office with consequences if the clerk’s office continues to process residents’ F.O.I.L. requests for information about what’s going on in the Coeymans P.D

BoBo & DoDo Off-duty

BoBo & DoDo Off-duty

New York State has laws that say the public has a right to information. One of those laws is the Freedom of Information Law or F.O.I.L. What do you think of the allegation that your Coeymans police chief, a mere employee of the town, has threatened the Coeymans town clerk’s office with consequences if the clerk’s office continues to process residents’ F.O.I.L. requests for information about what’s going on in the Coeymans P.D. The Coeymans police chief, Gregory Darlington, has violated his oath to support, protect, defend the United States Constitution and the laws of the United States and of the State of New York and now he’s threatening the office of the town of Coeymans clerk, a town official ELECTED by the people and who has also taken an oath to support, protect and to defend the Constitution of the United States, if her employees obey the law. Here we have a dumbass fat man threatening a highly experienced, competent, professional woman and her female staff members who are doing their jobs extremely well and in excellent service of the residents of this town. How far are we going to let this garden gnome Darlington and his jelly-belly bimbo-chaser, Deluca, push this community into becoming a police state.

“Indifferent to truth, willing to use police-state tactics and vulgar libels against inconvenient witnesses, hopeless on health care, and flippant and fast and loose with national security. ― Christopher Hitchens

And then there’s the village of Ravena with its lunatic mummy mayor John Bruno and his band of dithering winged monkeys (Remember the Wizard of Oz?) — Warner, Bailey, Case, Persico, Demitraszek, Deluca — sucking the life out of what was once a vibrant model village community. Ravena has become  a withering, wincing, whining, shadow of a stain on the map of AlbanyCounty. Why? Because the vampires in the Ravena village hall and the Coeymanazis have one thing in mind: squeeze everything and anything of value out of this community and leave the rest to the maggots. Mayor John Bruno and his hatchet woman, Nancy Warner, and the three stooges, William “Bill” Bailey, Martin “Marty” Case, and Rocco Persico, have violated just about every ethical principle, human and constitutional right imaginable. They’ve done this under the gavel of a viscious, lunatic, mendacious, clown of a mayor, John Bruno, supported by the greedy, vile, sweaty, bloated local shyster of the Biscone tribe, Michael J. Biscone, who has attempted just about every evil trick in the book, including attempting to censor freedom of speech at village meetings. (Yes! Reported in the Ravena News Herald in 2009 and more recently on this blog.)

Mr R. Houghtaling, the former very competent Coeymans town supervisor and a very smart man, told Ravena mayor John Bruno to get lost and read him the riot act on the First Amendment and Bruno and jerky-boy, Michael “Fix–a  Felony–for–a-Price” Biscone tucked their impotent tails between their scrawny legs and turn-tailed backed off.

Anything Good Will Contrast So Sharply with What’s Been Going on It Will Show Them Up for the Villains That They Are

Now the John Bruno–Nancy Warner gang are trying to destroy anything good happening in the village of Ravena and the hamlet of Coeymans because anything good will contrast so sharply with what’s been going on it will show them up for the villains that they are.

Of course, the Coeymans police department and Do-Do cop Gregory “Diddling” Darlington jumps on the bandwagon of rights violations, most recent atrocity has been reported here on this blog about the Ravena gazebo and Ravena’s unconstitutional loitering law. They’re trying to get to the adults, again, by using the kids.

How is it that this RCS area has gotten into the despicable and vile habit of pushing their agendas through on the backs of the children of this community. Every nasty scheme and political shenanigan has been either “for the kids,” “about the kids,” or in the case of the Bruno–Warren–Coeymans Police campaign, “against the kids.”

Are Bruno, Warner, and the cops trying to intimidate or retaliate against the kids, the Teen Center?

In fact, we have witness reports about mayor John Bruno, Ravena board member Nancy Biscone-Warner, and the Coeymans police driving by the gazebo multiple times in a single night when the kids are at the Teen Center. Is this passive aggression directed at the kids, the Teen Center? Are Bruno, Warner, and the Coeymans cops trying to intimidate or retaliate against the kids, the Teen Center? Don’t the Coeymans cops have anyone to harass now that the kids are off the streets, enjoying a beautiful place under a caring competent adult’s supervision, staying out of trouble. Are the Coeymans cops getting bored? Are Bruno and Warner afraid something good is happening in town and they don’t have control over it or are not making some sort of profit from it or getting a take? You can figure this out on your own; all you have to do is wake up and see reality around you.

Elections are coming up soon and you have to ask yourselves some very realistic questions:

    • Do you enjoy living under the thumb of a corrupt Albany Democrat machine and its lackeys in Ravena and Coeymans?
    • Are you O.K. with the abuse of the civil service system by the Albany County Civil Service Department under Mr Michael Cummings and the slick way they tried to slip Cathy Deluca in as Fitness Center Director on a non-competitive civil service job title?
    • Do you want to have your village and town governments turned into family businesses like what’s happened in Ravena and what’s happening in the town of Coeymans now?
    • Do you like being left out of the public information links?
    • Do you want to know what’s going on in your community?
    • Do you want the vermin from the village of Ravena insiders club, the very ones who have implemented mayor John Bruno’s ghost town plan and the Biscone plan to own Ravena outright, to get their hooks and claws into the government of the town of Coeymans?
    • Do you really need someone like Martin Case or William Bailey to extend mayor John Bruno’s agenda of scorch-and-burn, then buy cheaply, to the town of Coeymans?
    • Do we really want a Coeymans police department that is sucking the public treasury dry, botching up drug raids (raiding the wrong apartments etc.), that is obstructing justice, that is abusing public office, outright threatening our honest elected officials, intimidating and retaliating, changing this community into a mini-police state because then they can do the bidding of the Brunos and Biscones in the area. Then they can keep everyone quiet–well, not everyone–and in a police state of terror
  • Do your want to give the RCS board of education, now dominated by special-interest crooks and cronies, unsupervised, unmonitored free rein with millions of taxpayer dollars?
  • Since the last so – called election, the RCS board of education is now more of a membership – only club than an elected body; it’s now more of a special-interests lobby (and their interests are not yours!) than a public service group; Unless you demand accountability and transparency you’re not going to get it from them willingly! In fact, there’s a very scary connection between the BoE and the village of Ravena, did you know that? (We’ll be publishing some interesting facts on that connection of corruption soon, too!)
  • Are you happy with the way the village of Ravena (like the Ravena Health and Fitness Center scam) and the town of Coeymans (the new police cruisers, the hiring irregularities, the lack of supervision) are spending your money? How many patrol cars does the Coeymans Police Department need, anyway? Maybe a safe driving course would be better for some of them. Maybe making most of them unemployed would be best for all of us.
  • How much more of the village of Ravena has to disappear or lapse into the hands of the Biscones, the Persicos, the Brunos, the Delucas, the Conrads, the Perrines before residents stand up and put a stop to the mismanagement and abuse?
  • Are you willing to make the town of Coeymans a big Ravena by putting someone like Martin Case in the Supervisor’s office?

Dear readers, royalty and special privileged classes were rejected with the blood of colonial Americans who revolted against tyranny. They gave us a Constitution and later a Bill of Rights. For generations since those courageous steps, men and women of noble heart and love of liberty have shed their blood in defense of the liberties and freedoms granted by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In recent years, men and women of evil intentions and traitorous hearts have eroded those rights and liberties for their own gain, and they’ve done it by stealth, deception, lies, and cheating.

There is a saying that all politics start in the home. If that’s true, we really had better take a very close look at what’s going on right at our dinner table or in our living rooms before it’s really too late, and we have to live in the police state they’ve created for us and which we have allowed them to create.

P.s. A few political quotes I’ve selected for you to think about:

“A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.” — Edward R. Murrow

“You’re not to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it.” — Malcolm X, By Any Means Necessary

“Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip.” — Winston Churchill

The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them. To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. — Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

“All war is a symptom of man’s failure as a thinking animal.”— John Steinbeck

“In politics, stupidity is not a handicap.” — Napoleon Bonaparte

“Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.” — Ronald Reagan

“If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don’t bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay home if you want, but don’t bullshit yourself that you’re not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard’s vote.” — David Foster Wallace, Up, Simba!

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” — C.S. Lewis

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.” — Dwight D. Eisenhower

“People are always shouting they want to create a better future. It’s not true. The future is an apathetic void of no interest to anyone. The past is full of life, eager to irritate us, provoke and insult us, tempt us to destroy or repaint it. The only reason people want to be masters of the future is to change the past.” — Milan Kundera “Indifferent to truth, willing to use police-state tactics and vulgar libels against inconvenient witnesses, hopeless on health care, and flippant and fast and loose with national security.” ― Christopher Hitchens

“The fact is that the modern implementation of the prison planet has far surpassed even Orwell’s 1984 and the only difference between our society and those fictionalized by Huxley, Orwell and others, is that the advertising techniques used to package the propaganda are a little more sophisticated on the surface.
Yet just a quick glance behind the curtain reveals that the age old tactics of manipulation of fear and manufactured consensus are still being used to force humanity into accepting the terms of its own imprisonment and in turn policing others within the prison without bars.” ― Paul Joseph Watson

Ravena Continues Criminally Irresponsible Financial Neglect

The Village of Ravena Publishes the Proposed 2013-14 Budget: $115,500 for the Village Fitness Center;
Cathy Deluca to be Director making $30,000+.

Illegal, Exclusive, Expensive

Illegal, Exclusive, Expensive

Do the math: If there are 500 households in Ravena, the fitness outfit will cost each and every household at least $300.00 in 2013-2014!

The Village of Ravena Refuses to Disclose Legal Fees
Financial Irresponsibility Continues in the Village

Village Mayor John T. Bruno is Still Clueless

Mayor John T. Bruno

Mayor John T. Bruno

In a Times Union article following the Office of the NYS Comptroller’s audit of the village of Ravena, ” Audit slams Ravena board. Village officials fail to monitor finances, comptroller warns,” we read:

The Village Board has little control over finances…The audit revealed scant oversight by the board and said the village treasurer has almost exclusive control over finances…It found that the board is not aware of purchases, does not monitor the actual cost of operations versus the budgeted cost, does not approve budget transfers, did not audit the treasurer’s records or the justice court and filed annual financial reports late…
None of the transfers were approved by the board, the audit said… The audit called the village’s purchasing policy outdated, said the policy is not being followed and the board is not monitoring purchases… Two out of three department heads said they were unaware the village had a purchasing policy, and in reviewing claims, a substantial portion of them did not have proper documentation attached…”The mayor stated that the board was not aware that audits of the treasurer’s and the justice court’s records were required to be completed,” the audit said.

More than thirty years on the village payroll and Mayor John T. Bruno still hasn’t got a clue. ‘What, records? Us, keep records? Nah! I don’t know nothin’! Get outta here!”

And Nancy Biscone-Warner, wife of village justice Harold “Hal” Warner, has been treasurer for more than 20 years, and has been re-elected to the position by dumbass voters (probably the Brunos, Biscones, Persicos, Albanos, and a handful of Coeymanazis were enough to vote her in). Now she’s haunting the corridors of village hall 25/7. Why are the village Ravena, NY, reading reports of such incompetence and voting these clowns back into office?!? We don’t get it!!! Shouldn’t these walking-dead from the past be exorcised or something?

Nancy Warner Still Haunts Village Hall

Nancy Warner Still Haunts Village Hall

This blog has reported extensively on the village of Ravena’s backroom deals to evict the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Community Library and create the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. The planning for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center was business as usual in the village of Ravena: it was done secretly. No public hearings, no public comment. Then the village of Ravena went ahead and purchased about $40,000 in used health club equipment from another insider. The $40 grand came out of the public treasury. Again no public hearings or inputs.

We published our prediction that the Ravena-Coeymans Incest Club, the Brunos, Biscones, Warners, Delucas would be setting up a cozy little private spa for themselves and their croneys, as well as providing a plum position for one of their own. Well, as usual our prediction is correct.
The proposed village of Ravena budget is out and here are the figures for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, which already has its own e-mail and designer logo, again a done deal behind closed doors.

Cathy Long-Deluca

Cathy Long-Deluca

As we predicted, Cathy Deluca has been given the position of fitness center director at a cool salary of $30,000. Is that being paid out of taxpayer monies? Yes! Does it include benefits that not many of us are likely to see? Yes! Is this an insider pick? Yes!

Actually, Cathy Deluca does have some fitness center mismanagement experience. She managed a fitness center when she was still Cathy Long. Remember the fitness center on Main Street? The one that failed?

So let’s have a look at the “budget officers estimates” of what the fitness center is going to cost (the figure below is taken directly out of the proposed budget):

7180 Fitness Center  
130 Director (Cathy Deluca) 30,000.00
151 Hourly Employees 30,000.00
290 Equipment 30,000.00
424 Telephone 500.00
429 Repairsto Equipment 20,000.00
435 Outside Services 2,200.00
436 Unclassified 3,000.00

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center is Estimated to Cost Ravena Residents $115,500 in 2013-14. Can you afford that?

We’d like you to have a close look at item s 290 Equipment and 429 Repairs to Equipment. The village plans to spend another $30,000 on equipment for this misconceived misuse of public money. But what’s really irking us is that they’re budgeting another $20,000 for repairing equipment. They just bought about $40,000 in used equipment, and now they’re planning to spend another $20,000 repairing it. (Do the math: $60,000 in junk, scrap!) Our question is obvious: Who got the kickbacks?

There’s no business plan or anything like planning so the other $5,200 for items 435 Outside Services and 436 Unclassified are still mysteries. But let the imagination go wild on this one!

multicolor rhfcWhile I do not generally advocate taking local dollars out of the community, I must admit that nothing, nothing that the village of Ravena can do can even come close to the opportunities in Glenmont, just down the road with Planet Fitness and it’s beautiful facility, including changing rooms, tanning, instructors, events, sanitation, etc. And all at a ridiculously reasonable price and a variety of plans. But then, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center with all of its misleading hype, is not for you or me, it’s for the Ravena-Coeymans in-crowd.

Once the Coeymanazi bunch makes the Ravena Health and Fitness Center its watering hole, do you think the rest of us will be welcome? Guess again!

BigFatDancingDeluca_sm

How comfortable will you feel with Jerry Dirty-Hands Deluca behind you?

So, cruising down Main Street in Ravena we can take in the Bruno legacy as we approach a centennial: empty storefronts and empty residential buildings. But Ravena has $115,500 dollars in the 2013-14 budget for a fitness center. Go figure!

Moreover, wouldn’t it have been more responsible to have budgeted that $150,000 to support say the RC Teen Center’s programs for the benefit of youth, or perhaps to invested some of it in the RCS Community Library programs, after all the Library is in the geographical territory of the village of Ravena, or maybe some billing software to keep village accounts, especially water and sewer billings, honest. Speaking of water and sewer, how can the village board of Ravena in good conscience budget $150,000 for a health and fitness center of dubious merit, while neglecting the necessary repair of a 100-year old village sewer and drainage system! It’s criminal and Mayor John T. Bruno and his lunatic band of clowns William Bailey, Rocco Persico, Martin Case, and Nancy Biscone-Warner need to do some jail time with co-conspirators Cathy Long-Deluca and Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca!

Lady-Kiss-Hips

Cathy D.: “Gimme a health-club, Mayor Johny!”

We’d also like to remind our readers that the Bruno-Warner-Deluca fitness scam is also at the expense of a community institution, the RCS Community library. The library is funded by tax dollars that property owners in the town of Coeymans pay. You voted on its budget at the same time you voted for the RCS central school district budget, and the members of the RCS school board. The RCS Community Library serves residents of two counties as a result of the funding (actually the town of Coeymans (Albany County) and part of the town of New Baltimore (Greene County). In other words, the RCS Community Library is a publicly funded institution that serves the entire RCS CSD region, plus. The village of Ravena has done everything possible to make the library unwelcome, including raising its rent by an additional $600. That’s $600 of your money.

One of the reasons the RCS Community Library could not leave its location in the Ravena village building is because D. Persico, board member Rocco Persico’s cousin, didn’t have the money to finish the required renovations, and had to qualify for a loan. Normally, when a contractor renegs on a commitment, there are penalties, like Donnie, you’ve got to eat the rent hike? But that’s not how business is done in Ravena-Coeymans, especially in the Incest Club. Rather than impose penalties on the contractor-board-member-cousin who doesn’t have the money to finish the job, the village of Ravena raises the library’s rent by $600!

This situation has to be investigated and we’ll be publishing forms for residents to fill in and cover letters that can be used for submitting complaints to the Office of the State Comptroller and to the Office of the Attorney General, demanding that the operations in the village of Ravena be investigated.

Rocco Persico

Rocco Persico

Isn’t it odd that Rocco Persico is a psychologist on the payroll of the RCS school district and he’s on the village of Ravena board. I really have to ask myself what kind of psychologist Persico is if he’s on the Ravena board and this crazy shite still goes on? Maybe that’s why the high-school kids are so whacked out.


And the Financial Irresponsibility and Criminally Poor Recordkeeping Goes On and On and On…
What is Ravena Shelling Out for Legal Fees?
In Other Words:
What is the Michael Biscone Racket Being Paid?

FOIL
A Local Resident Filed a Demand for Production and Disclosure of the Village of Ravena’s Legal Expenditures. The demand was made under the New York State Freedom of Information Act, which requires public entities–with the exception of courts–to produce and disclose all public access information within a specific period of time.

§84. Legislative declaration. The legislature hereby finds that a free society is maintained when government is responsive and responsible to the public, and when the public is aware of governmental actions. The more open a government is with its citizenry, the greater the understanding and participation of the public in government.

*****

The people’s right to know the process of governmental decision-making and to review the documents and statistics leading to determinations is basic to our society. Access to such information should not be thwarted by shrouding it with the cloak of secrecy or confidentiality. The legislature therefore declares that government is the public’s business and that the public, individually and collectively and represented by a free press, should have access to the records of government in accordance with the provisions of this article.

Yes, every one of us has the right to demand disclosure of information from our government and public agencies. The government and its agencies work for you. Don’t let them forget that fact!

There are laws, the Freedom of Information Law, for example, that lay down the who, what, where, how, and when. And you should know about all of this. For example:

§89. General provisions relating to access to records; certain cases. 3. (a) Each entity subject to the provisions of this article, within five business days of the receipt of a written request for a record reasonably described, shall make such record available to the person requesting it, deny such request in writing or furnish a written acknowledgment of the receipt of such request and a statement of the approximate date, which shall be reasonable under the circumstances of the request, when such request will be granted or denied, including, where appropriate, a statement that access to the record will be determined in accordance with subdivision five of this section. An agency shall not deny a request on the basis that the request is voluminous or that locating or reviewing the requested records or providing the requested copies is burdensome because the agency lacks sufficient staffing or on any other basis if the agency may engage an outside professional service to provide copying, programming or other services required to provide the copy, the costs of which the agency may recover pursuant to paragraph (c) of subdivision one of section eighty-seven of this article.

And so far, the village of Ravena (and the RCS CSD district offices, Dr McCartney. But more on this later.) have obstinately broken the law!

It seems a local resident submitted a demand for disclosure of the village of Ravena’s legal fees, because of the observation that wherever you look there’s either a Biscone or a Teresi doing legal work for the village, the town, private individual, on their own. And given the NYS Comptroller’s observation that nobody seems to know who’s doing what or where the money’s going, it apparently seemed like a good idea to get the official word. Normally, a FOIL works…unless there’s something to hide.

Well, the resident got the runaround and then it was “we need more time because we’re mailing out sewer and water bills.” OK . Call him stupid, but the resident agreed to give them more time. And then…SILENCE. He contacted the village and the clerk tells him that the request is unreasonable, that she does not have access to the records, what she does have she’ll produce by August 2, 2013. WTF! Read the law (especially the parts quoted above)!

For all we have to say about the town of Coeymans, who apparently got the same request at the same time, the Coeymans town clerk responded in a matter of days! Why is it that Ravena needs almost 6 months from the time the FOIL was submitted to the time the village clerk expects to have the records? No way, José!  Well, maybe they don’t have any records. Maybe they don’t want to surrender the records. Maybe someone doesn’t want the records public. Maybe all of the above.

So now the village of Ravena has a choice: either get the documents to the resident or face the consequences. Now we’re on the case and we’ll see it right on through to the Office of the Comptroller and the Office of the Attorney General. And we know of quite a few other residents who’ll be more than happy to join the movement.

Well, dear readers, the law is the law for you and me, and for the village of Ravena. The village of Ravena is now breaking the law and it’s time to go public and demand that the Office of the State Comptroller and the State Attorney General do some poking around. Where are the records, Ravena?

Actually, we’ve hear that Michael Biscone is having his own problems these days. It seems he’s allegedly being sanctioned by the court for some sort of misconduct. We’re trying to lay our hands on the papers and will publish as soon as we can find out the facts. A former partner of Biscone’s, Joe  Rotello, is now in the Appellate Division, the New York State Unified Court System division that is responsible for disciplining attorneys. We just want all concerned to know that we know and that we’ll be watching for any messing around. May Biscone get what’s coming to him!

Coeymans not Reubenville, Just Ridiculous!

Late–as–Usual the Ravena News Herald’s Bryan Rowzee Manages to Continue the Now Habitual Media Pastime: Make Coeymans Ridiculous!

Coeymans Sold for a Sandwich

Coeymans Sold for a Sandwich

In a first–page top very late report on the town of Coeymans’ most recent success at making itself the clown of local municipalities by passing a resolution renaming the town to Reubenville. Coeyman’s most recently became an Arby’s whore for 5000 coupons allegedly redeemable for the new Arby’s menu item, the Reuben sandwich, more than 600 calories of non-nutrition (see our report Coeymans: Can It Get Any Worse Than This? (March 19, 2013)). Well it can get worse, as we read in Rowzee’s article, which is not news, but an encore performance of our earlier (by more than a week, 10 days, in fact) report.

Coeymans puts the "C" in Cheap as in Sell Out Cheap!Coeymans Town Board Sells Out for A Sandwich. Now that's Cheap!

Coeymans puts the “C” in Cheap as in Sell Out Cheap!
Coeymans Town Board Sells Out for A Sandwich. Now that’s Cheap!

Rowzee announces that Reubenville residents can pick up coupons for their artery stopper fat ball sandwich at the “Coeymans” town hall…where’s that? Didn’t he just say the place is now Reubenville? As usual, total confusion in Coeymans compounded by misinformation in the Ravena News Herald à la Bryan Lousy…or is it Rowzee?

In the News Herald item, Lousy or Rowzee, whatever his name is reports that residents must bring proof of residency in the town of Coeymans…Reubenville or, in lieu of proof of residency, certification of complete stupidity to receive a coupon from the hands of one of the bozo clowns at Coeymans or Reubenville town hall on April 6.

But Mr Lousy Rowzee fails to ask the burning question: So we’d like to ask the town of Coeymans directly: With only 5000 Arby’s coupons to go around and more than 7,300 residents in the town of Coeymans, how is the town board going to ensure equitable and fair distribution to all residents? First–come–first–serve is hardly a solution. After all, the entire town of Coeymans was affected by the name change and the town of Coeymans board acted on behalf of the entire town of Coeymans by making the name–change proclamation. It stands to reason that the entire town of Coeymans, that is, all residents should benefit without conditions attached. Right?

As I mentioned in my previous article, perhaps supervisor Stephen Flach, being a preacher and all that, could do the loaves and fishes trick with Mr Peter Masti’s venerable assistance. After all, supervisor Flach is a graduate of the obscure Zion Bible College and should have the scriptural knowledge to get the job done. Nah! That’s not likely to work. Better find another way, Steve, Peter.

Coeymans Board Members Pose for Group Photo

Coeymans Board Members Pose for Group Photo

Question: Will the CEO of Arby’s be there to witness this historic event or will Reubenville town supervisor Stevey the Clown Flach or Bozo “Tommy Boom-Boom” Boehm be handing the coupons out to the salivating porkers that will degrade themselves by showing up to collect their porky prizes? Have your cameras ready…and make sure you have the wide-angle lens or setting ready. Something tells me you’re going to have to catch some double wide shots on April 6.

Im_thinking_arbys

Why are there condoms over their heads?

Dork-reporter Rowzee even gives Arby’s on Wolf Road, Colonie, three (THREE!) paragraphs full of plug for Arby’s and quotes the manager, Michael Pitt, as being “excited” to welcome Rebenville stupids next month…on Wolf Road, in the town of Colonie, 30 minutes north of the Reubenville town hall, that’s 22 miles one way (44 miles round-trip), and $3.88 in gas (one–way; based on 22 m.p.g.; round–trip cost: $7.76)  just to pick up your “free” gift  (. And that’s not counting the time, travel, and gas you’ll need to get the coupon in the first place!  Now that’s really exciting, simpletons of Reubenville!

Question: Did Reubenville town supervisor Stephen Flach or board member Thomas Boehm, Thomas Dolan, Dawn Rogers, or Peter Masti ask Arby’s manager Micheal Pitt when he was going to come to Reubenville to choose a location for an Arby’s? Or do Reubenville residents have to spend at least $7.76 + the price of the sandwich to drive to the town of Colonie every time they get a hankering for an Arby’s Reuben? That’s an example of  Steven Flach’s, Thomas Boehm’s, Thomas Dolan’s, Dawn Rogers’ and Peter Masti’s idea of cost-effectiveness in government!

Another question: Did the town board of Colonie, the town in which the Wolf Road Arby’s is located, also offer to rename Colonie, Reubenville?  Or did they have the dignity to opt out of the childishness.

Bryan “Bozo” Rowzee reports that the town board member Thomas Boehm “discovered that Arby’s was offering 5,000 coupons to the first city to issue an official proclamation,’ and that the then town of Coeymans (now Reubenville) board, “in a timely move” (how impressive! how strategic!), “issued the proclamation.”

Duh, yup!We're on the map!

Duh, yup!
We’re on the map!

Coeymans town Supervisor Stephen Flach said he was pleased that Coeymans, Reubenville, had won the contest, and Flach applauded Boehm’s initiative and good humor.” “Applauded?” Flach should have pressed criminal charges for misuse of public office! Abuse of public trust!Applauded” the dumbass’s “initiative and good humor?” Airheaded fool! Flach and Boehm and the rest of the Coeymans Clowns made a proclamation on February 5, 2013, that the world is right: Coeymans is the Clown Community.

Thomas Dolan

Thomas Dolan

That other idiot Tom Dolan called “the Reubenville Challenge a fun way to put the town on the map.” Mr Dolan has many fun ways of doing that, as we’ve seen in the past. Yes, Tommy, that sure put Coeymans on the map. Duh, yup! Yeah, Tom Dolan even promised to put an original song on Facebook celebrating the “victory.” “Victory?” Is that what we now call it when elected officials  make total asses out of their entire community? Victory takes on a whole new meaning now. Really cheap victory.

Oddly enough, shady-shadowy town board member Tom Dolan calls the “Reuben Challenge” a “fun way” to put Coeymmans on the map. Isn’t it ominous that Dolan’s band is called “Shadowland“? Is that the map where we’ll find Coeymans/Reubenville after this “victory” Mr Dolan? A bit late, Mr Dolan, the Coeymans/Reubenville town board and the Ravena village council, under mayor John T. Bruno and his band of pinheads, Bill Bailey, Martin Case, Rocco Persico, and Nancy Warner, have already made this a Shadowland. Look around, Mr Dolan, this is Shadowland.

This IS Shadowland!

This IS Shadowland!

My advice when you get the munchies: Save yourself the trip and spend your $8-10 at a local shop or diner; that’s what it would cost you to redeem an Arby’s coupon on Wolf Road, Colonie.

Coeymans/Reubenville town board and Supervisor Stephen Flach: Rather than waste residents’ time passing out silly coupons and wasting their money sending them to Wolf Road in Colonie to spend their money, why not just donate the coupons to a food pantry or to a homeless shelter! Wouldn’t that be a nobler, more charitable, more positive gesture that would get Coeymans at least some positive press despite the stupidity of its leaders?

If you agree, dear readers, e-mail Supervisor Stephen Flach or the Coeymans/Reubenville town bard and tell them what you think! Here are their contact e-mails:

Before I sign off to do better things today, I would be remiss if I were not to give due recognition to a community-spirited individual, Dallas Trombley, who managed to get a very articulate and honest letter to the editor published in the March 28, 2012,  Ravena News Herald. Of course, Bryan “Lousy” Rowzee got the top of page 1 with his rubbish and Mr Trombley got hidden away on page 16, just before the public notices. (For those readers who do not have access to the Ravena News Herald, I am providing a scan of the letter to the editor at: Dallas Trombly on Reubenville. Now it’s out for the world to read.)

Mr Trombley starts out appropriately with : “I hate Reubenville.” So do most people in Coeymans who are endowed with half a brain (obviously that does exclude Mr Stephen Flach, Mr Thomas Boehm, Mr Thomas Dolan, Mr Peter Masti, and Ms Dawn Rogers).

economic-development
We have no Main Street Plan
but we do have
Coupons

Mr Trombley writes that he designed a “Main Street Plan” to stimulate activity to make Coeymans more attractive to homeowners and businesses. His plan makes a great deal of sense and does not include the Reuben Challenge, which Mr Trombley calls the “Reubenville farce,”  and points out that the “Town has named itself after a cheap product” and sold itself out for “coupons.” Mr Trombley accurately writes that “It is hard to imagine something more degrading.” We agree, Mr Trombley. Well written!

Mr Trombley very pointedly cites the many instances where, instead of adopting healthy alternatives and attractive options, Coeymans, Ravena, New Baltimore tend to opt to become the regions dump or court jester. Mr Trombley cites the plans for cement plants (with their toxic emissions), garbage dumps. He cites the many reports in local media about unhealthy conditions, criminality, villages (Ravena) evicting community libraries.

Very accurately, Mr Trombley notes that all of the negative press and the resulting negative image has real and lasting effects on the community: drop in population (Coeymans has lost 10% of its population, according to the last census!), property values drop, people are unwilling to move to the area, businesses avoid the area. Trombley gives the examples of Athens, Bethlehem,  and Coxsackie and how they’ve experienced an economic boom in recent years.

Property values are affected by perception of the community by outsiders, when population drops so do opportunities for businesses, when businesses fail, the tax burden shifts to those who are left.

I’ll close with a quote from Mr Trombley’s letter:

“I’m saying that it is in your economic interest to avoid negative perceptions of this town. For everyone else, who for reasons not just economic, but perhaps nostalgic-or perhaps because you’d like to. have more things to do around here, or because you would like your kids. to stick around – you,too,should be angry that our elected officials do nothing to improve this community,but name the town after a sandwich.”

I agree! (You can read the full text of Mr Trombley’s letter to the editor by clicking this link: Dallas Trombly on Reubenville)

New Baltimore: Coeymans’ Evil Twin…Part II

Each of Us, With Very Few Exceptions, Likes Integrity, Especially in our Elected and Public Officials. We Put Great Trust in them, and The Power and Authority that they Exercise on Our Behalf Should be Exclusively for the Good. But What Should We Think When they Are One Thing on the Surface and Another under the Skin?

When Discussing New Baltimore Candidates and Elected Officers, I have to Ask Myself:What Is It, Really?

When Discussing New Baltimore Candidates and Elected Officers, I have to Ask Myself:
What Is It, Really?

Can We Really Trust People Who Are “In Name Only”?

We’ve done a lot for the RCS community in bringing out the truth about the village of Ravena and the crooks in Village Hall, and we’ve set the town of Coeymans’ teeth on edge with the exposure of the corruption and hypocrisy that’s going on in the Doublewide on renegades’ Russel Avenue.

Just recently we’ve taken a shot from the hip at Coeymans’ evil twin down the road, New Baltimore. Exposed some nerves with the publication of that wake-up call and now the little club on Route 51 is a bit shaken.

But now we take a look at the real phoneys, the Democrats who are Democrats in Name Only a.k.a. DINOs, like Susan O’Rourke, and the Republicans who are Republicans in Name Only a.k.a. RINOs. It’s pitiful, but here’s the real story.

But who are those masqueraders who meet to get a cheap power rush at the expense of New Baltimore taxpayers? We’ve received some personal impressions from a local correspondent who knows the New Baltimafia from the inside out, it seems. Here are some of those impressions:

The Supervisor from Hell

New Baltimore Town Supervisor:Control! Control! CONTROL!

New Baltimore Town Supervisor O’Rourke:
Control! Control! CONTROL!

Supervisor Susan K. O’Rorke – She claims to be a Democrat and runs as a Democrat- but she’s actually a DINO – Susan O’Rorke is not actually registered as a Democrat, she is “NOP,” which is the election board designation for someone with no party registration.  Of course, she is nominated by the New Baltimore Democrat machine, and she gives money to the Dems (sorta buys her nomination), etc, but she doesn’t have the guts or the commitment to register as one of them, as a Democrat.

New Baltimore Town Board members

They're Republicans in Name Only![They're Owned by Dems]

They’re Republicans in Name Only!
[They’re Owned by Dems]

Christopher Norris – Runs as a Republican (but in fact is just a RINO), O’Rorke controls him totally, voted contrary to her on one single resolution only in more than 3 years. Shame on you, Christopher!

Lisa Benway– Runs as a Republican (another RINO) Only on the board for 15 months, has yet to vote contrary to Susan O’Rourke. Shame on you, Lisa!

Michael T. Meridith – Runs as a Republican.  Likes to get along with everybody, nice person actually, but will get his back up once in a while. Is that enough, though, to represent the people who put him in office? And does he have the cojones to be a real Republican, and represent real Republican values and morality? To oppose Susan O’Rourke’s peverse agenda of Democrat amorality and secularism? Well, Mike, do you?

Barbara Finke – Runs as a Republican.  The only person who challenges Susan O’Rourke, however is usually voted down by O’Rorke, Norris and Benway.  Has voted NO! on numerous proposals that Susan O’Rourke puts up, but a resolution that is 4-1 or 3-2 passes anyway. But BRAVO! anyway, Barb. Thanks for the gutsyness and the fortitude!

This is what happensWhen a real Republican meets a RINO!

Other Officers

Janet Brooks – Town Clerk- Democrat. A chameleon, really. Changes colors with the temperature and mood. And she stays afloat. Don’t let the smile mislead you…there are teeth in there.

Denis JordanHighway Superintendent, supposed to be Republican but  is totally 110%  in Susan O’Rourke’s  pocket.  In return he hands her the votes of the highway department employees and their spouses. The usual Democrat line of promises: he tells them that Susan O’Rourke will take care of them via raises and benefits if they support her.  Actually, he’s throwing your taxpayer money away in so many ways, O’Rourke’s just one of them. Shame on you, Denis!

Diane Jordan Recently appointed Town Tax Collector, wouldn’t be there if she weren’t Denis Jordan’s wife and a very special butt-kisser to Susan O’Rourke. She’s also supported in more ways than one by O’Rourke; in fact O’Rourke hand-picked Jordan and nominated her to be appointed when the previous Tax Collector stepped down for health reasons.  Like her husband Denis, Diane is a “registered” Republican but is owned by the Democrats. O’Rourke owns her and her husband. No shame, Diane!

Town “Justices”

[Editor’s Note: We really must apologize for using the word “Justice” when referring to these guys but that’s the official title. Has nothing to do with their performance or their ethics, unfortunately.]

New BaltimoreTown Justice at Work

New Baltimore
Town Justice at Work

Joseph A. Farrell Jr. – All that we’ve ever said or written about the ignorance and ineptitude of the New York State system of town and village courts is packaged in Joseph A. Farrell, Jr. Totally vanilla, nothing about the man is dignified, he’s a puppet of the worst kind, carved out of wormy wood. All he’s really good for is to collect speeding tickets, which he has been doing for quite a while now. An alleged adulterer who has the balls to show up in the local church with his fluff only during campaign periods to pander for re-election. Now his Conchita is married to “el juéz” and it’s classic melodrama on Peyton Place, New Baltimore. Disgusting pile of fetid flesh; Walking hypocrisy! And a Democrat all the way! Can it get any better than this?

Is it really written in the New York State Code of Judicial Conduct and the Judicial Law that our judges and justices are held to a higher standard than the citizen at large? If that is so and if the judges are such sleezebags, what can we expect from the New Baltimore citizen at large? I certainly hope they have their shots because they could be deadly!

Lee Davis – Davis is a registered Working Families Party member, which is a more radical branch of the Democrat party. Davis has only just been elected, rather “appointed” since we’re talking about New Baltimore now, to be a town justice. All we can honestly expect from Davis is that he’s going to march in lock-step with the rest of the club members and won’t buck his riders.

So, there you have an insider’s evaluation of the people who run the show in New Baltimore. There’s more coming up but we are working on checking the facts. It’s much dirtier than it appears at the surface, we regret to say.


Finally, we’d like to extend our special thanks to Joan Ross and Bob Ross of New Baltimore for their efforts in keeping everyone informed and for distributing this blog to the community. Thanks to you both for your behind-the-scenes involvement. It’s town residents like you who make all of this possible. (One of your many admirers threw you in!)
