High Marks for the RCS Community Library

The RCS Community Library under the direction of Judith Wines is doing a pretty fantastic job of getting some really interesting programs out to the community. In fact, when requested, we published the public information on an unusual but apparently very interesting and needed program that’s found a home at the RCS Community Library, Thanatology Café, a program that offers the opportunity to talk about death, dying, grief, mourning and death-related subjects.

We’ve read a pretty nice post on the Thanatology Café blog that is complimentary of the RCS Community Library and it’s staff, and we really think RCS should take note of the fine work the RCS Community Library is doing for the community.

Our more than 300,000 readers know well that we have no qualms about being outspoken when it comes to our community and the Ravena News Herald, but truth be told the Ravena News Herald and editor Melanie Lekocevic apparently have been generously supportive of the library and the Thanatology Café program, if our observations are correct. Fair is fair and when the News Herald is on the up and up, we want to be the first to say Nice job! Thank you!

BUT…

Churches, Funeral Homes, First Responders

Churches, Funeral Homes, First Responders

We do have some disturbing information though and we have verified it factually. Here we have an innovative program, Thanatology Café, sponsored by a reputable and highly-respected community organization, the RCS Community Library, and even getting the support of the Ravena News Herald but WTF!!!!! We have information that about 100 information packets were sent out to local churches and public service organizations, including fire departments, EMS, first responders, and police departments, including the Coeymans fire and rescue squad, the Ravena Hose Company, and the Coeymans Police Department, just to name a few, and it appears none of those organizations responded.

Local churches have their hands out for stipends whenever a local dies but almost every church in the area does not offer a bereavement education, a death awareness, or death education program…

no handoutsWhat’s even worse is that the organizers (for the record the RCS Community Library hosts the program but does not organize it) invited local churches and pastors to announce the program and to post the attractive flyers to inform their congregations of the availability of the thanatology program, yet, according to the spokesperson for Thanatology Café, not a single one responded and there is no evidence that anyone from any of the local RCS churches bothered to attend the inaugural event. That does seem a bit strange to us and we’d like to hear from members of the congregations of local churches whether they even heard about the program from their so-called pastors. We find that strange because local churches have their hands out for stipends whenever a local dies but almost every church in the area does not offer a bereavement education, a death awareness, or death education program. We would think they’d jump at the opportunity to learn more about the program from the get go!

Why didn’t the local death businesses — Babcock Funeral Home, A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes, W.C. Brady’s Sons Funeral Home respond?

death-its-a-livingAnd you’d think that the local businesses that make a bundle of money from local deaths, Babcock Funeral Home and A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes, both right down the street from the library, would seize the unique opportunity to join in the death education opportunities offered by a program like Thanatology Café but apparently Sharon Babcock and the A.J. Cunningham staff had better things to do than join in a community educational program. We’ll be keeping an eye on our local death industry, you can be assured of that. Both Babcock Funeral Home and A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes were provided with special packets along with W.C. Brady’s Sons Funeral Home (Coxsackie) and several other regional funeral homes were provided with special packets and invitations. We have the documents and we have the questions, too, Why didn’t the local death businesses respond?

People are more aware, more interested and willing to discuss the subject, the options and the choices…death and dying, living wills, advance directives, and funeral and memorial options

We’ve done the online research and find that Death Cafes, Death Salons, discussion groups about death and dying, hospice and palliative care organizations, healthcare organizations, special interest groups dealing with infant death, suicide, traumatic death, etc. are thriving and growing because people are more aware, more interested and willing to discuss the subject, the options and the choices, and are not waiting til the last minute to learn as much as they can about death and dying, living wills, advance directives, and funeral and memorial options.

Are they scared that Thanatolgy Café might rock their comfy little boats…get people to ask the important questions?

Can our churches, first responders, funeral homes be so petty as to get involved in small-minded turf wars at your expense?

Petty, stupid turf wars?

Petty, stupid turf wars?

So we’re getting interested now, too, but especially why local churches, who are constantly preaching about death and whatnot, and local first responders and rescue squads, who frequently have to deal with death, and in particular, why the three main death businesses, Babcock Funeral Home, A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes, and W.C. Brady’s Sons Funeral Home are so silent when an important program comes to the area. Are they scared that Thanatolgy Café might rock their comfy little boats, stir up some good and reliable information in the community, get people to ask the important questions? Maybe. We have learned that the Thanatology Café program will be providing a lot of information on pre-arrangements, available options and choices, how to go about creating your living will or Advance directive, funeral and memorial choices and recommendations, and much, much more. Stuff you need to know no matter what your age and information you’re not likely to get anywhere else.

we know where your head isDon’t you think you’d be getting a better deal from church, rescue squad, senior center and funeral home if they were better informed about death, dying, surviving, and the choices and options you should have? Can our churches and so-called pastors, our community funded first responders, local funeral homes, who cash in on the community’s ignorance and lack of information, be so petty as to get involved in small-minded turf wars at your expense? Looks like it. But keeping their heads tucked up a dark, wet spot won’t do them any good. Let’s hear from them. Let’s hear from our readers.

Town of Coeymans and Town of New Baltimore

Town of Coeymans and
Town of New Baltimore


Town of Coeymans

No, we haven’t gone AWOL on our watch. We’re working on a story about how the Phil Crandall/Youmans/Dolan mob are screwing town of Coeymans taxpayers. Didn’t we hear Phil Crandall say something about cutting the costs of local government, blah, blah, blah?

Well, apparently disgraced former village justice Phil Crandall, Psycho-bully Youmans and Dithering-Tom Dolan don’t think that cost containment applies to their cronies they imported when they took office. We’re talking specifically about the alleged overtime Crandall’s administrative clerk Nita Chmielewski is collecting hand-over-fist. It seems that old Nita is incompetent and doesn’t know what she’s doing — as if she ever did; nothing seems to change in the in-crowd in Coeymans — and she’s collecting a bundle for her incompetence and ignorance. Wonder if Mr Crandall, Mr Youmans or Mr Dolan can explain why their cronies get the overtime, while the Coeymans Police Department is consistently saving on costs, economizing, and coming in under budget under the professional supervision of a competent chief?

A contributor has demanded the production of certain documents that will prove the corruption in Coeymans town hall and the hypocrisy of Mr Crandall and his cronies

Stay tuned for the fireworks!


Town of New Baltimore

There’s word out that something’s cooking in New Baltimore about the New Baltimore Supervisor of Highways and the Highways Department and indifference, negligence and dereliction of duty and responsibility.

Thanks to the double-dealing of the Greene County Independence Party Committee chairman George Ackerman and co-chairperson, Irene Beede, and their mismanagement of a very worthy candidate, Mr Alan vanWormer in the elections last November, Denis Jordan was re-elected by a single — Yes! 1 vote! — and despite the known corruption, crookedness, incompetence and ignorance that is the hallmark of his department, he didn’t go to jail but kept his office. But that’s New Baltimore and screwy-Louie politics run by incompetent political committees.

Do you actually think YOU elect these bozos?

We have information that a pretty big law suit is in the brewing that will be brought against the town of New Baltimore, the New Baltimore Highway Department and Denis Jordan for incompetence, negligence, and indifference by dereliction of duty and violation of applicable state laws. Seems Jordan’s friends get all the highway department services while others get the finger, and can watch their property values collapse because of poor road and drainage maintenance.

A collaborator is getting the information together and talking to the aggrieved parties and we’ll be the first to release the information.

One crook is going to cost an entire town a bundle. Go figure!

How long do we have to wait? Official or Unofficial?


It’s 12:00 noon on Friday the 13th, ten (10) days after the Greene County Elections, and the morons at the Greene County Board of Elections STILL HAVEN’T POSTED THE FINAL RESULTS OF THE NOVEMBER 3RD ELECTIONS. THE LINK TO THE “OFFICIAL” RESULTS STILL SHOWS “UNOFFICIAL” RESULTS. WAKE UP GUYS!


WE WANT TO KNOW NOW!!!

So far, SILENCE!

So far, SILENCE!

Today, on Veterans Day, we claim to be celebrating the men and women still among us who served to preserve our dignity, rights, and freedoms. What “dignity”? What “rights”? What “freedoms”? Today, on Veterans Day, we slap our veterans in the face and kick them in the ass! Let’s ask our elected officials and politicians Why? that is!

A “Commander-in-Chief” who talks big about “We’ll keep fighting” but who has never served. Politicians who collect the money and get the benefits but can’t stick to the real issues. Media that sells ratings rather than inform us. We’ve forgotten what it is to be a real hero because we get fed a “hero-a-day”!

She Weeps for Us!

She Weeps for Us!

A week after the elections and we still don’t know the final results! Absentee ballots are not yet counted!!!

If the craziness and nastiness of election campaigns and the anxiety centering on the questionable results of local elections were not enough, our paid officials can’t even get their announcements right. It’s no wonder people don’t vote. But how can this country criticize other nations’ voting practices when our own is in such a sorry state?

For example, It’s now a week after the November 3, elections, and the final results are not posted (absentee ballots are STILL not counted).

The Greene County Board of Elections, Marie Metzler  (mmetzler@discovergreene.com) and Brent Bogardus (bbogardus@discovergreene.com), commissioners, can’t even decide whether the results on the Greene County Board of Elections website are “Official” or “Unofficial”. Who would think to look on the Green County Employee Info page for the November 3, 2015, “Official”/”Unofficial” election results, anyway. And they don’t tell us when the results, official or unofficial, will be final.

The Greene County Board of Elections page link reads: “Official Election Results/November 3, 2015” but the link goes to “Unofficial” results and those unofficial results are on the “greeneemployeeinfo” page. Go figure! And we trust those guys with running our elections?

When will they decide? Official or Unofficial?

When will they decide? Official or Unofficial?

And we mentioned last week that we expected the Albany County Board of Elections to be dragging their feet. Commissioners Matthew J. Clyne (D) and Rachel L. Bledi (R) don’t bother to provide their e-mail addresses. Do you think they’re interested in hearing from you about the outrageous delay in getting absentee ballots counted and the final results out? Coeymans will have to wait until after November 13, 2015, to learn the results. (Well, the good news is you still have time to leave town!) By the way, that’s Friday the 13th. Does that give the results away?

Albany will Count the Coeymans Absentee Ballots on Friday the 13th!

Albany will Count the Coeymans Absentee Ballots on Friday the 13th!

What’s the delay?!?!

We know Albany County is a Democrap sumphole and is run by a bunch of political machine backroom cronies, but really, do they actually need 10 days to count and tally absentee ballots? Where are we anyway? In Afghanistan?

Our Board of Elections will Let Us Know our Fate on Friday the 13th.

Our Board of Elections will Let Us Know our Fate
on Friday the 13th.

Be Afraid. Be VERY Afraid!
But there’s still time to leave town, people!

Our Picks for Local Elections on Tuesday, November 3rd

Who can argue the fact that we tell you what you need to know, not what the politicians and crooks want you to know so that they can live large at your expense.

Our readers know very well that we are not beholding to any political party; we hit them all pretty hard when they mess up. They hate us for our honesty and for the truth but Hey! Somebody’s gotta do it! You also know that we look very closely at experience, potential and job performance, not the circus performance we’ve all been seeing performed by the wannabe’s. We’ve already spilled a hell of a lot of ink telling you why some of the candidates are a definite NO! for our town halls and Albany County legislature. That’s why we are letting you know our picks for local government.

To share this article with a friend just copy and paste this link into an email and hit send!

Here are our recommendations:

vote

For the Albany County Legislature:

YES! for Richard W. Mendick Albany County Legislator, District 36. ABSOLUTELY NO! for Matt-the-Mutt Miller (Click here to know  Why?)

Matt-the-Mutt Miller

NO! Matt-the-Mutt Miller!

For Town of Coeymans:

NO Youmans, NO Crandall,<br>NO Dolan, NO Touchette!

YES! for Peter Masti Albany County Legislator, District 37. NO! for dumbocrap Rick Touchette (Click here to know Why? We also think Mr Touchette’s record of corruption and dishonesty knocks him off right from the start, that even despite the fact that Peter Masti is a dud, better a dud than a scoundrel in the Albany County legislative brothel! Masti’s a nurse so he should be able to wangle some Viagra to keep things up and going.)
YES! for Francis “Joe” Vitollo Albany County Executive. NO! for dumbocrap Dan McCoy (Click here to know Why? Democrap Swindle: Dan McCoy, Craig Apple, Tom Dolan do the Democrap Thing.)

For the Town of New Baltimore:

We’d like to note for our New Baltimore friends and Neighbors that the local rag, the Ravena News Herald, has again snubbed the town of New Baltimore and has not published a whit of information for NB residents on who’s running for what! Time to boycott the News Herald and the Johnson Newspaper mob! (We found only one short article on Dellisanti and Fullerton in the October 28, 2015, Daily Mail). Talk with your wallet and checkbooks! Stop buying the Ravena News Herald and stop advertising in the rags of the Johnson Newspaper mob!

Arthur Fullerton's Campaign Slogan

Arthur Fullerton’s
Campaign Slogan

YES! for Nick Delisanti  for New Baltimore Town Supervisor. DEFINITELY NO! for dumbocrap Arthur Fullerton (Click here to know Why?)

YES! for Alan VanWormer for New Baltimore Highway Superintendent, District 36. ABSOLUTELY NO! for dumbocrap Denis Jordan (Click here to know Why?)

YES! for Pat Linger Greene County Legislator, District 36. NO! for dumbocrap James “Jim” vanSlyke (Click here to know Why?)

Persson and Dunn are out of the race as far as we’re concerned. They have nothing to offer New Baltimore (they’re Chris Norris and Lisa Benway in Dunn and Persson suits. Persson is dull-dull-dull and hasn’t got the chance of a snowflake in hell! Dunn is done! Too many character issues and totally caca. The other candidates By the way, Norris and Benway have been conspicuously absent from NB board meetings for quite a while. Is that how the dumbocraps represent the people who vote for them?)

We sincerely hope that the information we publish on this blog helps you, our friends and neighbors, to make wiser and more informed choices when going to the polls. It’s our community and we have to serve it in whatever way we can. Please vote whichever way your heads and hearts point you but vote and vote conscientiously for the good of us all!

Blacks and Wimins Can’t Drive; Black Wimins Can’t Park (Won’t Park Legally)

animated_update_smallon our exposé of corrupt local dentists (in Greene county, NY): We are informed that our efforts and support of a reader who was a victim of Coxsackie Dental Arts, “Dr” Kurt Froehlich, have paid off. The reader’s credit card company has found in favor of the patient and has denied CDA and Frohlich payment, crediting the amount back to the patient. CDA and Froehlich can appeal the credit card company’s decision within 45 days, but Froehlich still got to deal with possible court action and possible investigation by the insurance company and the Greene County DA and NYS Attorney General for possible fraud for double-billing, billing the insurance company for services never rendered, and trying to collect from the patient!


Back to our main story:

Yeah! It’s an awful statement of a stereotype because it’s not true everywhere and always; in other words, it can’t be generalized to the entire population. But if people don’t like stereotypes or don’t like being forced into a stereotype, why do they insist on acting out the stereotype and giving it new life?

It’s An Election Year, A Big One! Shouldn’t Our Politicians Be Answering These Questions?

Do your part to put an end to “Sanctuary Cities” that ignore the law. Sign the petition at “Senate Must Act on Sanctuary Cities“.

Here’s an example from one of our readers:

Why does (it shouldn’t) color allow you to be inconsiderate, unsafe, uncivil, violate the law?

“Dear editor,
“I thought you’d enjoy this.
I shop at the Glenmont Pricechopper and sometimes use the BankAmerica ATM next door. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen vehicles parked in front of the BankAmerica facing the wrong direction and forcing buses and other vehicles to go around them, risking a mishap in the oncoming lane.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had the pleasure of noting that almost all of those lazy, inconsiderate scofflaws were “persons of color“, actually blacks.
“Today, I got a taste of “stereotype” behavior all of the PC correct whities are so careful to avoid noticing.
“I stopped and parked properly in the parking lot across from the ATM and noted a minivan type vehicle parked directly in front of the ATM on the wrong side of the street, facing oncoming traffic. A bus and a couple of cars had to maneuver around it to continue their trips. When I crossed the street I must have shot it a displeased look (no one was inside), but when I entered the ATM lobby, a black woman with alien locks was looking at me and says, “I saw that judgmental look at my car.” I couldn’t believe my ears. I responded, “It’s parked illegally and forcing people to go around it. Can’t you park properly?” She then launched into a tirade only a black could do to a white person, yelling that she saw my “judgmental look” at her car, and who did I think I was. I told I was the one obeying the law and parking properly and that she should save her paranoia for someone else. So she tells me to go “fuck” myself to which I responded, “Bitch! Get your money and leave so I don’t have to share this space with you.” She again told me to “fuck” myself.
Imagine if I, a whitie, started off on her like that and spoke to her like that. Or if I parked like that? Wonder if the Bethlehem Police would have ignored the white boy doing that?
Just thought you’d enjoy this after seeing “Black lives matter” until I want to puke!”
Thanks! You can print this if you want. It’s all true.
[Name withheld at author’s request.]

Before you get all self-righteous and politically correct, let us just agree on one point before you read on: This post is not about hate or racism or anything like either. This is a post that very clearly and honestly looks at a situation and how it came to be what it is. Very few of our readers will be able to deny having a similar experience. So let’s get on with it.

Another reader writes about his/her experience when attempting to get a price on a simple sewing job:

This is the place! Just look at those prices! Why is he charging those prices? Because he can!

“I read your blog about the dentists and I thought you’d be interested in this recent experience. [Editor’s Note: The reader is referring to our recent article, “Local Dentists. Are you being abused, taken for a ride in the chair?“, in which we discuss local dentists, especially Coxsackie Dental Arts (Kurt Frohlich) and Marvin Gertzberg (formerly of New Baltimore Family Dentistry), and their scams.]

“I had a small sewing job I needed done and figured I’d try a smallish place that had put up some signs at the four-corners in Glenmont, feeling it’s better to support a local small business than go to one of the larger establishments. It was a disappointing experience but taught me a great lesson in where we are in this country.

“I walked in and stood there watching a middle-aged man of color fussing with some garments. He didn’t say a word, or even look up at first but after a minute or two he came over and said, “What can I do for you.”

“I explained what I wanted done–seemed really simple since all I felt needed to be done was slip the thing under the sewing machine needle and stitch the material, that’s all I was asking for.

“The man started a mini-course in sewing and how this needed to be done and that had to be done. I clarified that all I wanted was for him to stitch the material. He continued, telling me that he charged for every 15 inches; there was a charge for every 15 inches of stitching. He continued by telling me that this length would be $45 and this another about $30, etc. until I was completely mindboggled that this job was already more than $100. I told him that if it was more than $25 I just was not going to have do it. I jokingly said I could get a surgeon to stitch for less money, and that he should be a doctor.

“Well, the little man then got downright insulted and told me that I was “rude and being smart,” for making such a comment. He told me that every profession has its rates of charge and that I was “ignorant” for not knowing that. I was shocked at his attitude and left saying, “Have a nice day and good luck, you’ll need it.”

“For your information if you want to print it, I’m talking about
Delmar Custom Tailor & Cleaners
http://www.delmarcustomtailor.com/
365 Feura Bush Rd, Glenmont, NY 12077
(518) 475-0883.

“P.s. I’m white middle class, well educated, a decent person and well-liked, and I don’t feel I deserve this sort of treatment from anyone, white or of color.

“P.p.s. Several days after this experience, I was at Joanne’s in Northway Mall and they recommended a local seamstress, formerly a manager at David’s Bridal, who does wedding gowns and custom clothing. I called her and described what I needed done, she asked me to make and appointment to come to her shop to show her. We met. She did the work beautifully for $20.00!!! Less than 1/5th of what that nasty little man wanted to charge. I guess his customers from Elsmere and Delmar have more money than dignity or brains.”

We found it! Around the corner from Romo's Pizza!

After all, immigrants can come here and take advantage of the “market economy,” but oddly they’re not subject to our laws, or our customs, or our ethics. But they have rights.

We’re not singling out Delmar Custom Tailor & Cleaners but this guy is a good example of what we are talking about when we talk of retroracism and abuse of the white foundation of this country. Rather than be tolerant and tactful, this immigrant chose to be arrogant, abusive, and disrespectful. He seems to have forgotten that in his own native country he probably wouldn’t be earning in a month what he charges now to shorten a pair of trousers! But is the little troll grateful? No! He, like so many others, leaves the squalor and corruption of their native countries to take advantage of the let-me-kiss-your-colored-ass-please juicebags of this country. Why is it we’re such pushovers?

All of the great nations, empires of history, were very careful to secure their borders and to take care of their own.Why is it this country lets the homeland spiral into depravity and opens its borders to let every parasite imaginable cross over and infest this country? Forget about the crapola we’re being fed by the ass-kissing liberals that this country was founded on the contributions of immigrants; they were an immigrant of a vastly different kind, they had values, morals, and a work ethic. Anyone who has had great grandparents who come to the United States LEGALLY can attest to that fact. We now have immigrants who make a joke of our federal laws and cities and states that aid and abet their criminality.

“White lives count!”

Yes! They do!

We are all born into a native culture; some people have moral and civil values, others do not. Some people are born into a loving, caring and nurturing family others are born into a vicious cycle of abuse. Some people are poor but dignified others are trash. We have white trash, Black trash, Oriental trash, and just trash trash. You can decide for yourselves where you fit in. One thing is certain, though: each and every one of us has the freedom and the liberty to be better and not simply be lazy and go with the flow. It just happens that some people are born into ignorance and prefer to stay ignorant; same applies to trash.

So when we look at what’s going on in this country, it’s all about choices: What you choose to do and what you choose to be. Simple.

I have the freedom and the liberty to choose and I choose not to accept the behavior…

Here’s an example: Today, we made a rare trip to Walmart in Glenmont. There was quite a variety of types there ranging from trashy to middle-class, and you could see right then and there that you are born into a culture, you are raised in that culture and you’re likely to stay in that culture and raise your children in that culture. I thought about this when I passed a very loud group of 4 persons, including two small children. Yelling, banging, the boom box was blasting. One couldn’t help thinking “stereotypes.” There is a reason for stereotypes and the reason is that the stereotypes perpetuate the stereotype. Does that make us, the others, evil or unjust for admitting that they created the stereotype, and we are just acknowledging it. It wasn’t us that created the behavior that pegs them for what they are, and puts them in the box labeled “whatever.” So why get all in a huff when someone honestly admits that they’re what they are: stereotypical of their group. Why? Because they like it there; they have no desire to leave their place in the world. Does that make them bad people? Not at all. But I don’t need them setting the conditions for how I live, or for invading my space with their behavior. I have the freedom and the liberty to choose and I choose not to accept the behavior; I also choose to admit that it exists and not to live in denial.

We’re just plain sick and tired to the point of puking when we have to listen to all the talk of “racism” even by our racist president, Mr Obama, who is quick to play the race card when it comes to a white-on-black issue but is eerily silent when it comes to the execution-style shootings of our law enforcement people. We’d like to start a counter-movement, “White lives count!”

They use any excuse to destroy and to use racism as an excuse for criminality!

Anyone who watches the antics of the carjackers and the other urban criminals can form their own opinions. There was a video of a car-chase and then an on-foot pursuit of a [black] perp the other day just in the wake of the execution-style shooting of a law-enforcement officer, in the wake of the shooting of a state trooper, in the wake of the on-air execution of two talk-show hosts, in the wake of the shooting of two police officers, and the list goes on. Does anyone dare mention the color of the perps? The media doesn’t have the balls to say “black” but the majority–we say the majority because in a couple of the instances no arrest has been made and we haven’t seen the pix of the perps (the media tends to avoid mentioning color or, in some instances, even showing a picture of the perpetrator(s)–were, Guess what? blacks. Not Hispanic, not Chinese, not Asian, not Native American, not Irish; read our lips BLACK! And we don’t mean African black! We mean American Blacks; the product of American Black culture. The same ones that will use any excuse to destroy and to use racism as an excuse for criminality! How long do you think the self-deception, the denial, the blindness of mainstream America is going to go on before it reaches the flash point and a reaction occurs?

Racism? The American people are kept in the darkest of dark closets when it comes to the truth about racism, slavery. Anyone with any knowledge of American history cannot avoid the example of the indentured servant, or non-landed whites, or women in this country. Much of that discrimination didn’t change until the 20th century!

White people can’t save Black people from themselves!

At some point in time people have to choose to stop being victims and stop riding the same old hackneyed slogans to death. White people can’t save Black people from themselves. Black people have to take charge and clean up their own acts, clean up their own neighborhoods, create new, more positive stereotypes of themselves. It’s about time someone admitted that.

And has anyone done the history of the Italian, Irish, even Catholic Americans in this country. Did you know that plenty of Italians and Irish were LYNCHED because they were Italians or Irish! Look it up, you ignorant liberal asskissers. In the West, until the 20th Century, Chinese and Sikhs, for example, were discriminated against and their property confiscated violently. What about the Japanese and German concentration camps IN THIS COUNTRY? Anyone talk about racism in those contexts? Why not?

And so we have people up in arms about closing our borders to illegal penetrations. This country is sick, sick, sick and it is refusing treatment. If you talk about closing our borders and enforcing our laws, you’re un-American! If you talk about deporting illegals you’re un-American! If you say fix the problems in the United States, wash the shit off your own porch before you screw up other countries and cultures, you’re un-American.

The number of jurisdictions with sanctuary policies for illegal aliens have risen to an estimated 340 from 276 in July, according to an updated CIS study. The refusal of local authorities to give custody of deportable criminal aliens to ICE has resulted in the release of around 1,000 criminal aliens per month. (Excerpt from: Santuary Cities…Releasing Thousands of Criminals). Do your part to put an end to “Sanctuary Cities” that ignore the law. Sign the petition at “Senate Must Act on Sanctuary Cities“.

Tell them to go the hell home and save their countries rather than abandoning them!

We have a question we’d like you to think about: Say you go to Canada for the weekend. You get into Canada using your American passport, driving a vehicle legally registered in New York, you don’t speak with an accent. But when you want to get back into the United States from Canada, using your American passport, driving a vehicle legally registered in New York, and you haven’t picked up an accent in Canada, you a put thru a third degree? It’s almost like you’re being punished for going to Canada and then trying to get back into the United States? Makes you wonder how so many Mexicans get into the USA over the border, doesn’t it?

So doesn’t it come across like a little hypocritical, a lot really stupid when the United States is telling Hungary and other European nations to open up their borders and let the Syrian refugees flow in? Yeah! Misery likes company and if the US has it’s Mexicans why shouldn’t Europe have its Syrians? Our advice: Tell them to go the hell home and take responsibility for saving their countries rather than abandoning them, and playing the rest of the world for suckers!

The United States government is doing more spying on YOU than on ISIS!

We even hear people saying that they don’t travel anymore because of the hassle they get at the airports by goons in uniform. Is there a plan in the works here? If regular people are abused enough they will avoid moving around too much. If they’re abused by mindless monkeys, they feel violated and who wants to go through that? Do you see a plan here?

All of you blind bastards reading this diatribe had better open your eyes and recognize the fact that we don’t deport illegal aliens because they are VOTES for those in power. We don’t call a criminal black because they are VOTES for those in power. (We also don’t call them black because they behave like animals and everyone is scared shitless of what they might do. You asked for it America! You sure as hell got what you asked for!) And we don’t spend more time fixing the United States because the corporations see untapped wealth in the Middle East and elsewhere and the only way they can get to it is by using the United States Government = their paid lackeys to do it for them. Look, if the corporations are going to profit by the military actions the United States government gets bogged down in, and United States military personnel come back dead, maimed, or otherwise physically or mentally damaged, it’s the corporations that should pay for the damage, not the American people. Our military is not protecting our freedoms and liberties, people, WAKE UP! In fact, our own government is erasing our freedoms and liberties on a day-to-day basis and you don’t even realize it. The United States government is doing more spying on YOU than on ISIS!

Don’t you feel manipulated? Don’t you feel like it’s time to reclaim your brain, your mind, your soul?

We’d rather not get started on the media and prime time programming, but we have to say something about it just to be fairly complete. You are told what to think. You are told who to listen to. You are told what to eat and drink. You are told you are damaged goods and need this or that drug. You are told by your boss you can’t say “fuck” in the workplace but turn on the television or open a magazine like “Men’s Health” and you can hear and read the word or worse almost regularly. You’re a dog or a whore if you jump into bed with a different gal or guy every day but it seems afternoon soaps tell you it’s OK. Two men kissing and boinking are OK on the soaps, too. Don’t you feel manipulated? Don’t you feel like it’s time to reclaim your brain, your mind, your soul? The media are stealing your mind and your soul and you just let it happen! If someone did that with your wallet or your purse, what would you do to reclaim just a couple of bucks or credit cards? But you let media corporations steal something much more valuable and irreplaceable: your soul and your children’s souls, and you do nothing!

Shame on you, America! You’ve become homeless and have prostituted your values.

And YES! it would be a terrible stereotype if it weren’t TRUE and FACTUAL!

Stay tuned for our exposés of local politicians and their bids for election. We’ll be exposing Matt Miller (another corrupt crook for the Albany County Legislature?), Touchette, Youmans (hopefully with his arrest record), Dolan in Albany County, and of course Mr Flach opposed by Mr Crandall. And in Greene County Denis Jordan (Stupid, crooked, corrupt, and not a team-player but still seeking re-election to Highway Superintendent), Arthur Fullerton (He has already been exposed for lying and misinformation in his campaign! running for town of New Baltimore Supervisor. <GAG!>), Delisanti (No balls but what’s the alternative? He’s seeking re-election as town of New Baltimore Supervisor). We’re going to have some great fun with this bunch of monkeys!

Democrap Swindle: Dan McCoy, Craig Apple, Tom Dolan do the Democrap Thing.

Dan McCoy, Albany County Executive seeking re-election on the democrap ticket this November, has to be dumb as dirt if he thinks he’s going to get any political capital by playing a shell game AGAIN with the residents and taxpayers of the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk community. If the Ravena News Herald front-page story (September 10, 2015) on the democrap conspiracy to provide Ravena youth with a place to go to stay out of trouble is to be believed it’s UNBELIEVABLE.

scam scam scam

The Scams Victimizing Ravena-Coeymans Never Seem to Stop!
And they always seem to be “for the kids.”

Dan McCoy, Craig Apple Playing Democrap Joke on Ravena-Coeymans and Albany County Taxpayers!

Do you all have to be reminded that you are paying Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk school taxes to support a school budget of more than $40 million? Isn’t that where the kids are supposed to be provided (1) with education, (2) with supervised extracurricular and after-school activities such as sports and field trips, (3) with academic help like tutoring and homework assistance? If Mr McCoy, Mr Apple, Mr Dolan, and Mr John D’Antonio could put together a whole brain among their four empty heads, and if they had any clue as to what has been going on in the Ravena Coeymans-Selkirk community in the past 2-3 years, they’d stay far, far away from it, especially in an election year. But they’re too brainless, clueless to do that. They’re blinded by their uncontrollable egos and indifference to the real needs of their communities.

If you don’t remember what happened to two — count them TWO — previous youth and teen activity centers that were driven out of town by village trustee Nancy Warner, insider Cathy Deluca, Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca (now executive director of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs) after a [forced] retirement from the Coeymans Police Department, former Coeymans Police Chief Gregory “Dumpy-Dumplin” Darlington, former mummy mayor John Bruno, let us remind you how village of Ravena and town of Coeymans elected officials and corrupt police department employees (Deluca and Darlington), obstructed justice, violated protected civil rights, harassed and persecuted the teen center until kids and parents were driven away. Of course, the teen center was attracting teens and youth who would otherwise be on the street. The teen center also was potential competition for the now defunct and dismantled Ravena Health and Fitness Center that Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca, with the collaboration and support of former mummy mayor John Bruno and the ex-Coeymans cops Jerry Dirty-Hands Deluca and Gregory “Dumpy-Dumplin” Darlington (former police chief now part-time school bus driver), unlawfully created and turned over to Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca’s partner, Cathy Deluca, whose fraudulent civil service application was unlawfully considered and approved by a now resigned director of Albany County Civil Service.

How is it possible?  and Who? is behind this new initiative to all of a sudden take care of Ravena’s youth and teens; the very youth and teens who are an almost extinct species in Ravena and Coeymans, thanks in part to misinformation, corruption, abuse of public office, and downright nastiness?

Why do all these corrupt schemes seem to land in Ravena?

Why do all these corrupt schemes seem to land in Ravena?

While Dan McCoy and Tom Dolan promise that the proposed youth center, which is to be housed in the same space as the former now defunct Ravena Health and Fitness Center (the third failure chalked up to Cathy Deluca’s corruption and mismanagement), now that all the junk equipment has been sold (Let’s see…Warner and Deluca paid Robert “Bob” Fisk, another Ravena insider, more than $40,000 for that equipment. Warner and Deluca kept the RHFC open for more than two years while it was hemorrhaging taxpayer dollars to the tune of more than $100,000 each year! So what’s the final cost of these brainiac ideas to local taxpayers? Why not ask Ravena Mayor William “Mouse” Misuraca, who strangely was unavailable (as a Republican) to appear among the shark mob of democrats McCoy, Apple, Dolan, etc.)

Do we really need to pay for duplications of effort AGAIN?

Look, RCS taxpayers are paying a bundle for the services that will be literally duplicated by this idiotic so-called “youth programming initiative” for Ravena and Coeymans. We have a school budget that is supposed to be doing most of what Moron McCoy, Rotten Apple, Dudley-Dolan and Dopey-D’Antonio are pushing! In fact, didn’t we recently vote on a capital improvement proposal for the athletic facilities for the RCS school district to the tune of several millions of dollars? We have an RCS Sports Association. What are they doing for youth? We have a Coeymans Police Youth Athletic organization. We have an almost competition swimming pool! Do we really need to pay for duplications of effort AGAIN?

Why Ravena-Coeymans? What’s the catch? There’s got to be a catch. Or is it just that the democraps are scared shiteless that their cronies are going to get the boot in November?

This sounds like another scam that’s taking the RCS community for another ride down Stupid Lane. If you fall for this one like you’ve fallen for all the other scams from Reubenville to the Ravena Health and Fitness failure, you really should be sent down the river for mental treatments.

If the county of Albany and Mr McCoy, Mr Apple and Mr D’Antonio have so much change jingling in their pockets, there are much more needy communities and organizations that need those taxpayer dollars. We intend to contact those organizations and let them know what kind of scandalous scam is going on in Ravena-Coeymans, and we’ll let them ask Mr McCoy, Mr Apple and Mr D’Antonio what is going on in their empty democrap heads.

sleezebag

McCoy, Apple, Dolan

As for Ravena-Coeymans we have this to say: Utilize your school facilities fully. Use your RCS Commuity Library fully. Use your churches fully. Use your extracurricular activities and after-school support activities fully. Use your local sports associations fully. And parents, spend some time with your kids for a change. Try being parents.

Mr McCoy, Mr Apple, Mr D’Antonio, Mr Dolan: We’re not finished with you slugs yet. We have more to say about you leeches in an upcoming article. This latest scam you’re trying to feed our friends and neighbors is a declaration of election year war. Let the games begin!

Local and Regional Politicians are using and abusing our children as fodder for their inflated egos; these politicians are using our children as tools to manipulate parents and adults into supporting their freakish games. STOP it!

The Ravena News Herald was once a family-owned, community newspaper; George McHugh, a local attorney who was rewarded for his politics with a judgeship, sold out to the Johnson Newspaper Group. The Ravena News Herald in now a corporate rag being used by its owners, John B. Johnson and the Johnson Newspaper Group, to promote their politics and their agendas. The Ravena News Herald is no longer YOUR community newspaper, it’s THEIRS to use to bait you with your local faces and then to force feed you THEIR politics. You are being manipulated to the max. WAKE UP RCS!

Stop using and abusing our kids for your political games!It's not for the kids, Jerky Boys, it's for YOU! The Editor

Stop using and abusing our kids for your political games!
It’s not for the kids, Jerky Boys, it’s for YOU!

George Acker, Greene County Independence Party Chairman: “We never forget.”

New Baltimore in Focus or In Our Sights. You Decide.

buck_in_crosshairs

Looks like the New Baltimore Re-pubic-an Incumbents on the town board are in for a scary ride this time. Nick Dellisanti and sidekick Jeff Ruso seem to have done a classic job of pissing off the Independence Party hierarchy and may have lost some much-needed support.

pissed-me-off-you-have

The Independence party supported Nick Dellisanti (R) and his group last election but Dellisanti turned around and screwed with the Independence party candidates when the voting was done. Dellisanti’s suicidal statement: “Republicans appoint Republicans” is turning out to be a poison pill for him and anyone running alongside him.

While the Independence party may have an axe to grind with Dellisanti, the past two years have been really disappointing overall. Dellisanti and his group don’t seem to be able to set any milestone accomplishments. What they do seem to have excelled in, however is distortion, deception and misrepresentation. Seems also that they don’t have the wherewithal to fight battles, within town hall and outside of town hall, because they don’t understand the local culture.

But what can you expect from outsiders, anyway?

The Dellisanti group fails in leadership

New Baltimore town supervisor Nick Dellisanti (R) and town board member Jeff Ruso (R) behaved unethically, using local supporters and disposing of them ungratefully after the voting was done — after all, according to Dellisanti, “Republicans appoint republicans,” (for example: Barbara Finke (R) to be town clerk, Kathy Rundberg (R) to be planning board chair, etc.). We’d like to see appointments by merit and for the good of the community as a whole, not just for party cronies, Mr Dellisanti. But their failings don’t stop there. The Dellisanti group fails in leadership and does not respond affirmatively nor decisively to residents. Moreover, Dellisanti and Ruso have the bizarre tendency to ignore residents’ offers of participation in local town affairs, ignoring correspondence on a number of occasions. Rather than calling them liars outright, Dellisanti and Ruso have their own versions of facts, too. Where’s the transparency, accountability, collaboration we were promised?

On the Democrap side your have wicked-weasel-momma Diane Louis; generally disliked in just about every circle but this wicked-weasel-momma that she is, she has staying power (probably because she eats her young, despite the fact that she’s vegetarian). Very nasty piece of work.

Arlene McKeon is Louis’ sidekick and has an ego to match. You can be certain of one thing: Louis and McKeon have the interests of Louis and McKeon at the top of their priority list.

On the Re-pubic-an side you have another wicked-weasel-momma, Jean Horne, who has a listening problem but likes to give orders. Ever hear the story why we have two ears and one mouth, Jean? Jean is going to have to do some puddle-jumping to keep her feet clear of the doggy-doo piles being left by her darlings Dellisanti, Ruso and others. Horne will also have a problem with New Baltimore highway superintendent Denis Jordan who can’t seem to cooperate with town hall, can’t seem to handle the job he’s expected to do as highway superintendent (more on Hamlet streets in an upcoming article), but has plenty of town-time to take care of special locals — sort of favors for votes. But isn’t that illegal, Mr Dellisanti? You know about it but you haven’t done much about it. Why is that? Jordan has to go!

And then there’s the question of the money being paid to New Baltimore animal control officer Joe Tanner who works full time elsewhere and can’t possibly respond to animal control calls until he get off his other job. That’s why he conjures up undocumented investigations and why his favorite line is “sign a complaint.” Signing a complaint gets him off the hook and the complainant has to do the work. Nice scam for an additional $3-4,000 a year for nothin’. But isn’t that illegal, too, Mr Dellisanti? And what about you, Mr Ruso, isn’t animal control one of your committees? You know about it but haven’t cleaned house yet. Why is that? (But then neither did democraps David Louis or Susan O’Rorke.)

two ears one mouthThe wicked-weasel mommas stay behind the scenes and like to call shots and bark instructions. They like to pick candidates so they have someone to be their sockpuppets. They also like to play dirty behind the scenes and let others take the crap. That’s their wicked-weasel staying power game.

Do Louis and McKeon take the pill?

Do Louis and McKeon take the pill?

dove with olive branchSo what are the wicked-weasel-mommas going to do now that their wicked-weasel candidates can’t expect to run only with democrap or re-pubic-an backing, and they have to get the backing of the next major party, the Independence Party? You guessed it: They grovel and crawl to George Acker, while they wave their insincere, phoney plastic olive branches, begging the Independence party for support and endorsement. But…

George Acker:The Independence party never forgets.”

Well, now that Dellisanti and Ruso have pretty much sewn themselves into a potato sack and are just waiting to be thrown into the Hudson, Arlene McKeon is going to have to do some fancy steppin’. Why? Because the Independence party will be a hard nut to crack for the repubics. Irene Beede, Independence second-in-command, recently told New Baltimore’s Dellisanti that they’ll “need more signatures” to get Independence backing. Translation: You’re dead in the water. Take a walk. According to Independence party chairman George Acker, “The Independence party never forgets.

Then there’s wicked-weasel-mamma Diane Louis who is begging the Independence party to endorse her new sockpuppet, Arthur Fullerton. We’re researching Fullerton but if the adage, “birds of a feather flock together,” proves true, we have some grave concerns. The very fact that Louis is pushing Fullerton already taints him as being cut from the same cloth as a David Louis or a Susan O’Rorke. We’re looking at him in those terms until some really persuasive stuff comes our way.

Who this Arthur Fullerton is is a bit of a mystery but that’s always the case with the democraps and has been the history of any democrap town hall: keep it in the back room. That’s not to say that the re-pubic-ans don’t have their own secret agendas but,  obviously, when Diane Louis sees something in a potential sockpuppet that alone should put the fear of the Lord in all New Baltimore voters from the get-go! Think David Louis. Think Susan O’Rorke. That’s Diane Louis at work.


First of All, We Have to Take Control of Ourselves!

An editorial aside

Voters in New Baltimore and everywhere must stop letting others think for them. Our whole American culture has become a nation of sheeple. Turn on the TV or the radio and listen. You’re being told what to think, what to buy, what you need, what you want, what you should be thinking, what not to think, what you don’t need. They’re even filling your heads with fear and anxiety. What you should be fearing today. Whom you should fear today. Anxiety and fear are very effective methods of controlling populations (remember Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pho Pot?). Another way of keeping populations under control is to isolate them. Isolation is used in prisons to control populations and it’s used on the general population, too! How? You may very well ask! By creating a self-focused society. A ME!-first society. By destroying institutions that unite people, starting with the family, the church, communities. Isolation. Distractions are also very effective: more toys dominating your attention and you won’t notice what’s going on around you. How about keeping people poor? If you’re worried about your bills and survival, you’re likely not to pay very much attention to politics. Right? Very few people today actually think independently; most are simply robots doing what the media tell them to do. Are YOU one of them? Don’t think for a minute that political party leadership in their conventions, caucuses and whatnot have your interests in mind. They first look at electability. Can we get this guy or gal elected? They’re looking for numbers. And they’re looking to put through THEIR agendas. It’s a power trip for them. It’s an ego trip for them. It’s disaster for us!

One lesson we can learn from recent events in Greece, the birthplace of democracy: when governments are screwing you, take to the streets and change it. Good for you, Greece! Democracy is alive and strong in Greece. It’s all but dead in the USA (maybe it never arrived in the USA…maybe it’s all just a big propaganda spoof and you all believe it)!


For the past two decades or so the town of New Baltimore has been merely a feeding ground for incompetent amateurs feeding their inflated egos with hard-working citizens’ votes. We don’t need Harvard M.B.A.s or healthcare administrators to run this town. We don’t need democraps or re-pubic-ans either, since at this level they are DINOs (democrats in name only) or RINOs (republicans in name only) and they’ll change their party affiliations in a flash if it serves their perverse ambitions. And we don’t need political parties or widked-weasel-mommas to select their cronies and tell us whom we are going to have to vote for. Enough already! We don’t need any more outsider amateurs who want a town they can play with. What we need is some dedicated, community-oriented, sincere, honest people who can respect the local culture and respond to local needs and concerns, while having the balls to take a stand and to tell the downstaters and carpetbaggers that this town of New Baltimore belongs to the people of New Baltimore who make their homes here. What we do need is for native New Baltimorans to wake up and take New Baltimore back. We need neighbors and friends to start running the town and tell the cliques and egomaniacs to take a hike.

Anyone who arrogantly tells another citizen resident that his or her chances of working for the good of this town depends on his or her party affiliation and not on his or her merit; in other words, that “Republicans appoint republicans” does not deserve to be in public office — here or anywhere else.

Fullerton, Dellisanti, Ruso, etc., Will you survive?

Fullerton, Dellisanti, Ruso, etc., Will you survive?

Any candidate running in this town of New Baltimore from this point on will have to pass the acid test, will go through a baptism of fire, before he or she makes it to the ballot. We call upon all citizen residents of New Baltimore to start taking responsibility for this town and to join us in telling Diane Louis, Arlene McKeon, Nick Dellisanti, Jeff Ruso and anyone else that this town is still a democracy and is not a party-political machine shop. Any candidate’s priority must and will be the single common good of the community of New Baltimore and nothing less than that.

We’ll be reporting more on this issue as we move closer to the campaigns. We’ll also keep our ears to the ground and pick up any vibes, do our research, collect our facts and report responsibly to the community. We also need to inform the community of New Baltimore town superintendent of highways, Denis Jordan, and his attempt to stay in office to maximize the damage he can do to the town while banking his pension. There’s an alternative brewing that may be the town’s chance to save itself. Stay tuned!

We Specialize in Rubbish Removal: A Perfect Record

We're cleaning up!

We’re cleaning up!

Since the inauguration of this blog as a reliable source of community information and as a catalyst for change-for-the-better of the communities in the R-C-S southern Albany county and northern Greene county regions, we have accumulated a long list of accomplishments, thanks to the contributions and support of the communities we serve. Here are just a few that we successfully pushed to rid our communities of trash:SUCCESSES%20starburst

  • John Bruno as Mayor of Ravena: He’s history.
  • We showed how Nancy Warner is a two-headed snake and hypocrite: She’s history but doesn’t know it yet.
  • Tom Boehm and his cronies on the Coeymans town board: He’s gone and so are they (rest to follow).
  • The dirty-hands-duo Dirty-Hands-Jerry Deluca and his sidekick Gregory “Dumpy-Dumplin'” Darlington: they’re both gone (but with their pensions, regrettably!).
  • The illegal and unlawful Ravena Health and Fitness Center (and its failure manager, Cathy Deluca): it’s bye-byes for the RHFC and Cathy Deluca (see below).
  • The Coeymans Police Department (but we do support keeping Chief P.J. McKenna in the capacity as law enforcement liaison to the Albany County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police; McKenna is a professional law enforcement officer with a great deal of experience and savvy.): it’s curtains for the CPD!
  • The Coeymans incestuous gang of dispatchers: they’re passé.
  • In New Baltimore, we worked to get rid of the democrap mob under Susan O’Rorke and get some new blood in New Baltimore town hall: we’re working to get some work out of the new egomaniacs in NB town hall now.
  • Also in New Baltimore, we worked to oust the former town clerk for alleged abuse of office: we ended up with an initial political appointee, Barbara Finke (NB town supervisor:Nick Dellisanti  “Republicans appoint republicans.” — That was a really bad response, Nick!) who ran unopposed and is now in office — Well, almost, Finke seems to be away, absent, on vacation more than she’s in the clerk’s office (but that’s fuel for another article): Bye-bye next election.
  • We exposed numerous local scandals in Ravena village hall including the incompetence of the village clerk (a Bruno appointee,Annette Demitraszek, and deputy-clerk Kristine Biernacki, Nancy Warner friends), the public works scandals and Henry Traver (we have some tidbits to share on Traver and his relationship with some of the hopeless hopefuls) and Sandy Debacco, the water scandals, the Ravena mayor and boardmember health insurance benefits scandal (full-time benes for less than part-time work!), and we’re still working on those.
  • In New Baltimore we exposed the scandals involving Denis Jordan, NB superintendent of highways, and his unlawful labor practices, his non-existing recordkeeping, his misuse of town resources.
  • In New Baltimore we exposed the problem of Joseph Tanner, animal control officer, being paid several thousands of dollars of taxpayer money while he works full time for the New York State Department of Transportation; he can’t possibly respond to animal control calls while working on a road crew!
  • An the list goes on and on and on. Just search this blog and get the facts! We’re working on some great exposés at this very time. Stay tuned!
"Dirty-Dumplin'" Darlington as Busdriver

“Dirty-Dumplin'” Darlington as Busdriver

And speaking of Gregory “Dirty-Dumplin'” Darlington, former chief of the Coeymans police department. That same dirty cop who conspired with Nancy Warner and then Ravena mayor John Bruno to harass and persecute Ravena kids, how is it that the “Dirty-Dumplin’” was recently observed driving an RCS school bus?!?! How can the RCS school board allow that weasel who was such a savage to our children only a year ago should now be have access to our children on their school buses? Where are you parents? What’s that pervert doing on the bus with your kids? Is the “Dirty Dumplin’” that hard up for a job? Won’t his fellow weasel Albany County District Attorney David Soares give him a job? Nope. Even David Soares isn’t that stupid. Only the RCS board of education can claim to be that stupid. Check out this Family Guy busdriver clip.

Not to be used to support the illegal money-pit, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center!!!

Not to be used to support the illegal money-pit, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center!!!

As for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center: The Ravena town board refused to fund the Ravena Heaps and Fatness Center in 2015. We certainly applauded that move but had to ask Why did it take them so long? Almost a year prior they admitted it was failing and was a money pit. At a recent Ravena village board meeting we were appalled to have heard that the Village was looking into getting county/state funds to keep the money-pit operating for another year, presumably to keep failure Cathy Deluca in a job. Where were they going to get the funds? Well, they expected to get money from the money confiscated from drug dealers and placed in a fund for supporting communities etc. The Ravena village board had better think again. Here’s Why?

  • We smell corruption and collusion in that announcement. Is that why we see Dirty-Hands-Jerry Decluca‘s New York State Association of Fire Chiefs official vehicle at Ravena town hall? Is he still misusing police information to shoe-horn his pet hippo into a secure position?
  • We smell Nancy Warner still trying to keep her biatch-buddy in a job but still at taxpayer expense! It’s not going to work, Nancy. That money you’re greedily eying is earmarked for worthwhile community projects, not to keep your friends in play-money!

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center is dead, and it’s going to stay that way!

According to the local rag, the Ravena News Herald, the Albany County Sheriff’s Department was “interested” in taking over the Ravena Heaps and Fatness money pit! That’s absolutely absurd! To think that Craig Apple or anyone in the Albany County Sheriff’s Department would seriously consider taking over that dump is absolutely scandalous and political suicide! Warning to Mr Apple: Stay clear of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center or face election ruin!

But according to that same report in the Ravena News Herald, Ravena hasn’t heard a peep from Mr Apple or anyone in his department regarding the alleged “interest.” Maybe there still is some sanity in Albany County.

Here’s our promise: If the Village of Ravena or anyone associated with the Village of Ravena even tries to submit a request for funds or grant money, especially from money confiscated from drug dealers, the shit will hit the fan big time. We will obtain all applications and the names of all persons involved and expose them all. We will contact all regional community-based organizations, non-profit community organizations, non-government organizations an create an avalanche that will bury Ravena village hall. Once we’ve gotten the support of regional organizations, we’ll use that support to demand investigations, audits, and prosecutions from the Office of the New York State Attorney General, the Office of the Comptroller, and others. So think again, Ravena, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center is dead, and it’s going to stay that way! And if the Albany County Sheriff is so asinine to allow himself to get involved in such a scandalous and corrupt situation, he’d better start updating his résumé because he’ll be political HISTORY in a New York minute, and be listed as a political suicide!

It’s bad enough that even a rumor is even circulating that any Albany County department would consider taking over the Ravena money pit but to think that the suggestion is that the Albany County Sheriff would be willing to redirect confiscated drug money or any public funds to the third Cathy-Deluca-failure is pure insanity. Note that Mr Apple, and note it well.

Warner and her political cronies to misuse public property for their political ambitions…What’s next, campaign signs in the windows of Ravena village hall?

electioneering

Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey represent all that is corrupt in Ravena — aided and abetted by Ravena “Mayor Mouse” Misuraca’s band of retarded sockpuppets. It’s an election year and the roaches are coming out big-time! Nancy Warner is flashing her fangs from her nag’s head, together with doddering mumbler Bill Bailey, “Mr Nasty” Jim Youmans, Graveyard Manager Rick Touchette, and several other failures. Nancy Warner is dead in the water but doesn’t know it. In fact, we were flabbergasted when we drove by the village gazebo during the village-wide yard sale and saw Nancy Warner, Bill Bailey, Rick Touchette all misusing public property in their electioneering! Misusing public property for party political campaigning is heavy duty unethical and illegal. That’s the same Nancy Warner who had the Coeymans police chasing local village kids when the kids were hanging out at the Gazebo. But it’s OK for Warner and her political cronies to misuse public property for their political ambitions. Right? WRONG! We’d also like to remind our readers, especially our Ravena readers, that it was Nancy Warner [with the support of Bill Bailey] who orchestrated the mindless scandal of creating the Ravena Health and Fitness Center — which we all now know was devouring more than $100,000 a year of Ravena taxpayer dollars before the Ravena board woke up and admitted it was a failure and a money pit —, and it was Nancy Warner, who hired known failure Cathy Deluca to be manager of the fitness center, and who ensured that Ravena village hall insider Robert Fisk managed to collect more than $40, 000 of Ravena taxpayer dollars for his used fitness equipment. And it’s that same Bill Bailey who wants to meter and charge Coeymans fire department for the water they use in responding to emergencies, putting out fires! And it’s the same Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey who want to turn off water to the hamlet of Coeymans. And, Yup!, it’s the same Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey who, for years, have been involved in the unlawful and improper water and sewer billing practices in Ravena. But now they’re looking for your votes! No Way José!

And let us remind RCS residents and taxpayers that it was Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey who upped the RCS Community Library’s rent an additional $600-700 a month to force the library to vacate the library space for the money pit Ravena Health and Fitness Center. And it was Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey along with former Mayor John Bruno and his puppets on the Ravena village board who were constantly threatening the RCS Community Library with eviction. Show us any other community in the civilized world that would do that to its community library!

Warner and Bailey: Illegal and unfair water and sewer billing, shadey bookkeeping, harassment of our kids, illegal and unethical campaign practices, abuse of the community library, supporters of the Cathy Deluca failure system a.k.a. the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, insider dealers. Do you still want to put them back in village hall?

Tom Dolan and Peter Masti of the Coeymans town board are also looking for election to political office. Tom Dolan is an abject failure and an embarrasment to the democrap party: he’s managed to lose his grip on every important issue and is waffler-in-chief on the Coeymans town board. Dolan has to go and like yesterday. He’s got a lot of negative baggage, too, like his alleged manipulation of voting through is Choices office. That’s going to follow him. And let’s not forget the favors he allegedly accepted from local town and village justices for his kids’ drinking and drug problems. He’s corrupt and is not above taking unethical and illegal favors.

Peter Masti misuses Holy Scripture because he misunderstands it — we don’t need to elect fanatics or more tunnel-vision in local government!

Now native Californian Peter Masti, who likes to remind readers of his many letters to the editor in the Troy Record that he’s a registered nurse, is a real dud. We’ve pubished some of his lunatic letters to the editor. Now we’d be the last to malign religion and spirituality, but Masti’s sense of god is perverse. He’s a literalist and fundamentalist (he uses the Bible as a weapon to control, that is, he misuses Holy Scripture because he misunderstands it.) He’s been an embarrassment on the Coeymans town board since he’s was elected. Fanatics and tunnel-vision have no place in our government and we need to start cleaning house at the local level.

"Cryptkeeper"Touchette Campaigning

“Cryptkeeper”Touchette Campaigning

And then there’s Rick Touchette. Touchette has a reputation for lying through is teeth but that’s no news in Ravena-Coeymans politics, much less in Albany democrap circles. We all know that Albany County is already a social and economic graveyard, and that Coeymans and Ravena are even deader. So it’s only natural that Rick Touchette, with his extensive credentials and experience in managing graveyards, should want to run for Albany County legislator. C’mon people, wake up and smell the decaying corpses we have running for public office. The irony of Touchette’s ambition as published in the Ravena News Herald (June 11, 2015) really made us laugh. Here’s a guy (Rick Touchette) whose entire experience is managing cemeteries and now he wants to legislate for Albany County. Now really, neighbors, isn’t that scarey? The Cryptkeeper wants to be your legislator!

Rick Touchette's career is managing cemeteries. Like Ravena/Coeymans, Albany?

Rick Touchette’s career is managing cemeteries. Like Ravena/Coeymans, Albany?

For some years now Touchette has been the executive director of the Albany [Roman Catholic] Diocesan Cemeteries, and if you’ve ever had to deal with that bunch of anal freaks, you’d steer well clear of Touchette.

Coeymans: Urgent Need for Blood!!! Here’s why…

Update: An inspection of the signs we reported to be blocking visibility at the intersection of Main St/Church St (Rt 143) and Westerlo St in the Hamlet of Coeymans shows that the offending signs have been rearranged following our report. We are pleased to note that Ravena/Coeymans officials read this blog and take its advice to heart. Maybe next time the geniuses will use their heads and save some trouble and embarrassment.

The Editor’s Summer Reading Recommendation: George Orwell’s novel, 1984. More on why in an upcoming article. View one of the original “1984” b/w film versions, made in 1956, at [click on the link ⇒]  “Original 1984” (or an original b/w version made in [click on the link⇒] “1954 1984“)or the trailer for the 1984 remake at [click on the link⇒] 1984 “1984”. The movie is incredibly prophetic and wakes us up to what’s actually happening today! Watch it or read the book and let us know what you think!

George Orwell’s 1984. Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, Orwell’s narrative is timelier than ever. 1984 presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions—a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time.

How typical! Right in front of the Coeymans Firehouse/Rescue building the very hazardous intersection of Main/Church Street (RT 143) and Westerlo Street in Coeymans Hamlet, right across from the Pieter B. Coeymans elementary school and right in front of the Coeymans Fire Company, some bunch of morons have cluttered the corner with signs that make it virtually impossible to see oncoming traffic on Main Street! Of course they need more blood! Do you think they could obstruct visibility any more completely?

We'd to know who the morons are who have cluttered this already hazardous intersection! Is this job security for the Coeymans Fire Department and the Rescue Squad? Do you wonder that they urgently need blood?

We’d to know who the morons are who have cluttered this already hazardous intersection! Is this job security for the Coeymans Fire Department and the Rescue Squad?
Do you wonder that they urgently need blood?

Considering that Coeymans has a Coeymans Fire Company and Coeymans Rescue Squad. And considering that Coeymans has a police department, it’s incredible that none of these “public safety” groups has had the brains to remove these signs from the intersection to allow motorists to have a clear view of traffic and to safely enter Main/Church Street (Rt 143)! What a bunch of clowns!

Well, now the problem arises for Coeymans residents that when an accident does happen, and the lawsuits start coming in, we can safely say that the town of Coeymans’ liability will be invoked because of its stupidity and indifference in allowing the signs to be placed in such a position as to obstruct visibility and to adversely affect motorist safety. We’ll be watching.

Who are the morons who put all those signs on that corner, we’d like to know! And PUHLEEZ get some class; Coeymans Landing Celebration on the back of a cardboard box?!?! Can’t you people afford to at least get a piece of sign board? What a bunch of hicks!

Coeymans gets the Dumbass Award this time!

Ravena Village Board is Cheating Ravena!

Stay tuned! We’ll be publishing the scandalous abuse of the public trust by the Ravena village board and their presumption to give themselves full healthcare benefits at the cost of thousands a month. How dare they be so arrogant and irresponsible to give themselves full-time benefits for a fraction of part-time work! Stand by for our full report.

 
 

Resident SLAMS!!! Ravena Trustless Nancy Warner

We recently published an email sent by Nancy Warner to a local resident unlawfully denying him his rights to access information under the New York State Freedom of Information Law, and telling him he’s “wasting taxpayer money.” We pointed out in our article that Warner was way out of line and was the last one who should be telling anyone they’re wasting taxpayer money. Maybe Warner feels that stealing taxpayer money is better than wasting it, after all Nancy Warner knows how to do both. But back to the subject of this article:

RAVENA RESIDENT SLAMS NANCY WARNER

ouch_gotcha

Ravena Resident Pokes Nancy Warner in the Eye. OUCH!

Far from being a trustee, Nancy Warner should be a “Trustless” but you can trust Warner to grab any moment to act like she’s mayor of Ravena. She’s not and this resident tells her so. Read on…

Dear Trustee Warner:

Thank you for your kind but inappropriate email response of 4/29/15. While you are entitled to your personal opinions, you would be well advised to avoid abrogating authorities to yourself that are not yours to exercise. You do not have the implied or explicit authority in your present purview to respond to or to deliberate unilaterally and independently of the Village Board on matters concerning the instant subject matter. Furthermore, you are egregiously overreaching any implicit or explicit authorities when you attempt to limit or to deny me the rights clearly established under the provisions of the New York State Pubic Officers Law (a.k.a. the NYS Freedom of Information Law or “F.O.I.L.”) and any such attempt, implicit or worse still explicit, as represented by your e-mail, may expose you and the Village of Ravena to investigation or even prosecution. Need I remind you at this point of the current investigation relating to the Village Board’s unlawful abuse of power in the [name redacted but it concerns the Ravena Planning Board] case? You need to learn to put a lid on it and to control your megalomaniac ego, Ms. Warner.

At the risk of repeating myself, you had no business whatsoever and no authority whatsoever to arrogantly assume a position not yours by responding unilaterally and without mandate to an inquiry not in your purview. You have repeatedly failed to provide any documentation on how my building went from four to five units. You have never provided documentation with my signature (since none exists), I have repeatedly questioned how and when I went to from four to five units, which is your (Village of Ravena) basis for my water/sewer billing. One has to wonder who you think you are. Better still, one has to remind you who you are; you tend to forget. You are an elected officer of the Village of Ravena and a servant of the residents and community of Ravena. You are nothing more but may be much less, depending on one’s perspective.

You were way out of line in your response to my email. (I was simply requesting who and when will the village attorney contact me from a previous e-mail sent from the village to me six weeks ago; in short a follow up).   The Mayor, and Mr. Mahler and Mr. Coye are the trustees overseeing the water/sewer/building departments, and the zoning/planning  boards respectively.  When it is time to discuss any issue, I will contact them first. Obviously, you are not on those committees or boards and accordingly you have no business injecting yourself into matters concerning them unless explicitly invited to do so; you have not been so invited to my knowledge.

You appear to need a reminder that village elected officers and village staff have obligations and duties to the public under their oaths of office. This is undisputed fact and has been laid down clearly in town and village law, public officers law, administrative law, and yes, in criminal law.  As you are aware, “misprision”  requires one to report crime or a violation of law; you, especially as a public servant, are obligated to report unlawful or illegal activity or or risk prosecution yourself, even if that illegal or unlawful activity is your own. I realize that’s a very regrettable situation you may find yourself in but you yourself are to blame. Your history and record of abuse of office and abuse of citizens’ protected rights is long and documented. You would be well advised to cease and desist with immediate effect your unlawful interference and obstruction of other village employees in their diligent, even if it is somewhat clumsy, execution of their duties and responsibilities under the law. In other words, Ms. Warner, back off and butt out. Should I have an issue with village staff, I shall take it up with them on an informal amicable basis; as I have for the past 25 years.  Should that approach fail,  I shall address and discuss any such issues with the Chief Executive Officer of the Village of Ravena, the Mayor, who I believe continues to be Mr. William Misuraca, not YOU.

Should you have any questions regarding this communication, please do not hesitate to appropriately, that is, within the limits of your authority, to contact me. I shall be pleased to discuss anything you may find difficult to understand or impossible to grasp; simply send me a courteous, civil e-mail.

In the meantime, please accept my sincere appreciation of your most recent communication; I indeed appreciate it for what it is.

[Name withheld by request]

OUCH!!! You been had, Nancy Warner!!!

And BRAVO for you, Ravena resident and taxpayer!!! More of your neighbors should follow your example. Their lives might improve dramatically!

Bravo for You! Sock It to her The Editor

Bravo for You!
Sock It to her!

Stay Tuned

We might be about to bust the Ravena Incest Club wide open!

We’re not done yet with the scandal behind the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and some of the unlawful finagling that went on using Ravena taxpayer money, public funds. We have a village of Ravena document that appears to split the village payment of $40,000 for the used fitness equipment for Cathy DELUCA’s pigpen. It appears that one check was made out to the NATIONAL BANK OF COXSACKIE in the amount of $18,000.00 and the other check was made out to Bob Fisk’s wife/concubine, Deborah FARHRBACH.  But the Bill of Sale signed by Deborah FAHRBACH and notarized by Michael Biscone’s secretary, Sharon E. DEWSBURY, clearly states that Fahrbach and Fisk are the “legal owners of the equipment” and that there are “no liens or encumbrances” on the equipment. If all that is true and Deborah FAHRBACH wasn’t perjuring herself by making a false oath, something simply doesn’t add up here. Question is: if . was the seller of the used fitness equipment, why did two checks have to be made out? One was a check made out to the National Bank of Coxsackie and the other to Fahrbach? Michael BISCONE is the attorney for National Bank of Coxsackie (Ravena) and acts also as Ravena village attorney. Was Michael BISCONE Bob Fisk’s or Fahrbach’s attorney, too? Is that why Biscone’s secretary notarized the Bill of Sale for the used equipment? Could it be that Robert FISK (a Persico on his mother’s side) owed the NATIONAL BANK OF COXSACKIE a note on the equipment the bank manager — at the time, Donna BISCONE —, would look bad if there were a bad debt? If that were so, then Fahrbach did perjure herself when she stated that Fahrbach and Fisk were the legal owners and that there were no liens or encumbrances on the equipment. What if Fisk had IRS tax liens in 2000 and bad credit, and had to get out from and under what was owed? So they went to the “cookie jar” (Ravena taxpayers money) to get some honey-money? So  do we have the PERSICO and BISCONE clans working together. Former mayor John T. BRUNO was hot on getting the RCS Community Library out of the building and in correspondence notes that his cousin, Josephine BRUNO (Prudential Realty), was brokering the deal. and was pushing to get the village of Ravena to get the equipment out of the building on 172 Main Street, Ravena. Nancy WARNER is a BISCONE, in addition to Donna BISCONE (retired); a National Bank of Coxsackie manager/director, Donald PERSICO, is apparently one of the PERSICO clan. Add Michael BISCONE, who is attorney for the village of Ravena AND for the National Bank of Coxsackie, and may have represented Bob FISK, too. But Fisk is related through is mother to the Persicos of Ravena, too. Looks like we might be on to something here. This is HOT! So stay tuned! We might be about to bust the Ravena Incest Club wide open! (Don’t relax yet, Jerry PERRINE, Larry CONRAD. We’re not done with you yet, either.)

Ravena gives Clerk-Treasurer Private Lessons @ $310/hour!!!

The Village of Ravena, that is, Nancy Warner, has hired an Albany accounting consulting firm, SaxBST, to provide Quickbooks training to Ravena Clerk-Treasurer Annette  Demitraszek paying the consultant doing the training, Lynda P. Smith, $175.00/hour and the other consultant, a SaxBST partner, Willard G. Reynolds, $310.00/hour. Question is: Why isn’t the village of Ravena using some of the less expensive training available? Question is: Why does the village of Ravena have to spend $18,000 for the first year fee to have SaxBST train Demitraszek when someone already with the knowledge should have been hired? Question is: Why hasn’t Nancy Warner, who claims to have 30 years in Ravena village hall training her so-called clerk-treasurers? Question is: If Nancy Warner is so damned concerned about “wasting taxpayer dollars” why is she hiring SaxBST at the rate of $300.00/hour?

Village of Ravena Accounting Principle

Why is Ravena Paying $310.00/hour or $18,000 a Year to Provide Private Lessons for the Clerk-Treasurer?

Nancy Warner, the Ravena village trustee, who is so concerned about wasting taxpayer money when responding to residents’ requests or problems, despite her gung-ho support of the money pit Ravena Health and Fitness Center that devoured more than $200,000 of taxpayer money, while paying fitness-center virus Cathy Deluca more than $60,000 of that money to run yet another fitness center into oblivion, has done it again!

We have received paperwork that shows that Nancy Warner has contracted an outside consultant firm to train her two sockpuppets, Annette Demitraszek and Kristine Biernacki, how to use  Quickbooks accounting software. That’s all well and good but here’s where it gets to be a scandal:

Nancy Warner and her cronies on the Ravena village board headed by Ravena mayor Bill “Mouse” Misuraca, Joel Coye, Keith Mahler and Bill Bailey, are spending what looks like $18,000 at a rate of $300.00/hour to the consultant firm to train the gals on site at the Ravena Village Hall.

We’re not only questioning the wisdom and the logic behind spending that kind of money on consultant fees, we’ve got an even better question for Nancy Warner: If you’ve been on board at Ravena village hall for more than 30 years, earlier as village clerk and then as village trustee, this “training” should have been done way back then. What this means is that until now, village accounting and bookkeeping was not being done correctly (the Comptroller’s audits have already pointed this fact out on several occasions). Why is it that village staff are being trained now and at such great cost to taxpayers? Accounting practices and laws don’t change over night; if the state does change practices and laws for villages and towns, they send out bulletins and advisories announcing the pending changes. Where was Ravena village administration when all of this was happening, Nancy? Bill Bailey? Were you asleep on watch? Wasn’t this your responsibility, Nancy Warner?

Yeah! Nancy. That's what we thought your answer would be!

Yeah! Nancy. That’s what we thought your answer would be!

Now, we know you’re just dying to know where the money for this irresponsible and insane spending spree is coming from, so we’d like to tell you.

The firm providing the training is the Albany accounting, taxation, and advisory firm, SaxBST, located on Computer Drive. They don’t necessarily provide “training” but are providing their services as consultants (consultants are astronomically more expensive than mere “trainers”). One of the partners, Willard J. Reynolds, who is providing “services” bills at the rate of $310.00/hour. The other “trainer”, Lynda P. Smith, who isn’t even listed on the SaxBST site, bills at a rate of $170.00/hour.
According to the papers we have received, per a document stamped “Received” by the “Town Clerk” on April 24, 2015, the Village of Ravena was billed $5,550.00 on November 30, 2014 for a meeting with “the mayor, 2 board members, Annette.” That invoice shows the proposed first year fee of $18,000 (less the $5,550 billed, leaving a balance of $12,450). The village of Ravena was billed $2,867.00 on December 31, 2014 for “meetings with Annette” and “in-office discussions and research” by Smith (15 hours) and Reynolds (3/4 of an hour). The balance of the first year fee on December 31, 2014 was $9,583.00. We can’t seem to locate the line item for these expenses in the 2015-16 Ravena Village Budget, so where’s the balance supposed to coming from?

Back to where the money was coming from to pay this extravagance. The SaxBST invoice for $5550.00 was vouchered and processed for payment on or around December 15, 2014. The SaxBST invoice for $2867.00 was received by the Village of Ravena on January 12, 2006, and approved for payment.

So where is the village of Ravena, Nancy Warner, finding the cash to pay for all of this. Well, we didn’t have to look far. All we had to do is look on the payment vouchers and then at the line items in the Village of Ravena budget, and match them up. You see, Nancy Warner and the village of Ravena board are tapping several other accounts to get their hands on the money. For example, to pay the $5550.00 they used $3885.00 from line item A1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), $832.00 from line item F1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), and $832.00 from line item G1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services). To pay the $2867.00 they used $2006.90 from line item A1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), $430.00 from line item F1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), and $430.00 from line item G1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services). They just barely made it in the 2014-15 budget but it doesn’t appear that they will in the 2015-16 budget because two of the line items: F1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services) and G1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services) don’t appear in that budget. So our question is: Where are they going to get the balance of more than $9,000 to cover the outstanding balance for the year’s SaxBST fees?

Now get this: Nancy Warner is the contact person shown on the correspondence from SaxBST. Annette Demitraszek, the assistant clerk-treasurer, a Bruno appointee and a Misuraca re-appointee, official Nancy-Warner-sockpuppet, is the village employee, the “authorized official” who is certifying and approving the expenditure. Now isn’t that delicious: Nancy Warner, who is so concerned about wasting taxpayer dollars, is having her cronies privately trained on site, on village time by consultants billing at the rate of $175/h and $310/hour!!! And guess who is certifying and approving the payment of the fat invoices? None other than the very person receiving the training and benefits: Annette Demitraszek, village of Ravena clerk-treasurer! Anybody smell a rat yet?

About $20 from Amazon or Barnes&Noble!

About $20 from Amazon or Barnes&Noble!

So we did a little research on Quickbooks training. You can get a 2-day mastery course for $499.00  and do it on line with Intuit, who has trained more than 2 million government and business clients and for $999.99 you can become a Quickbooks VIP member and enjoy extended benefits . We won’t go into the benefits of these programs but will mention that local community colleges have ongoing courses for Quickbooks in their continuing education programs. Why didn’t the dumbasses in Ravena village hall consider any of these options? Because it’s easier to sit on their fat asses in village hall and spend Ravena taxpayer’s dollars. That’s why.

Better still, buy the Quickbooks for Dummies — if Demitrazek and the Ravena village board can qualify as dumbasses, they’ll ace the dummies course —, available from Amazon or Barnes&Noble for the outrageous price of $20.00. Now why didn’t Nancy Warner think of that?

We’d also like to speculate that there’s something in this wild spending to benefit someone in village hall. Why would Ravena’s elected officials be so irresponsible and expose themselves to such scandalous ridicule if they weren’t getting something big in return. What’s in it for Nancy Warner, we’d like to ask? It just wouldn’t make sense being so irresponsible so openly if they weren’t getting something considerable in return. Kickbacks? Favors? We do know that Annette Demitraszek is walking away with knowledge obtained in private lessons by some pretty pricey tutors, and she’s doing it on your tab. It’ll look good on her résumé when she goes job hunting when Ravena taxpayers demand she be fired, and Nancy Warner’s brought up on charges.

Now don’t you think you should be attending village of Ravena village board meetings and asking some questions about how your money is being spent?
