The Biocultural Model May Explain the RCS Phenomena

Locals Bite the Hands that Defend Them and Kiss the Asses of Those Who Abuse Them

asskisserFor the past four years we have been writing about the scandalous conditions that are rampant in the Ravena – Coeymans – Selkirk and the New Baltimore communities. We have rubbed local noses in the piles of political scat and have lambasted local politicians and public employees for their gross ethical misconduct and their incompetence. We have called upon residents to raise their voices in protest to improve life in their communities. In the course of exposing the corruption in the local communities and beyond, we have come to a regrettable conclusion: Residents in the RCS and New Baltimore communities bite the hands that defend them and kiss the asses of those who abuse them.

Scientific research and the psychological literature provide evidence for the observation that culture and biology go hand–in–hand. How you live becomes part of your legacy over time; given enough time, it also becomes part of your genetic makeup. While this biocultural model is rather new on the scene, our observations of the RCS and New Baltimore communities actually support that scientific theory. The culture of abuse has existed for so long – – for generations – – that it might actually meet the criteria for the biocultural model. The fact that local residents have been abused and used by corrupt local politicians and officials may account for the fact that locals seem to like the status quo; they actually seem to like the abuse and the corruption. So when conditions improve, local residents feel uncomfortable and complain about the new improved conditions. It would seem to the outside observer that locals like being treated like dumb animals.

I'm from Coeymans!

I’m from Coeymans!

For about two years now, Doughboy – Dumpy Dumplin’ former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington has been gone. Word on the street was that he was forced into resignation. He’s now allegedly driving a schoolbus and doing part – time work at the Babcock Funeral Home (Ravena) as a sloppy usher.

The Dumpy – Dumplin’s sweetheart protégé Dirty–Hands Jerry Deluca exited with Darlington but the special interest group, the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs, hired ole Dirty – Hands to be their executive director. Says a lot about the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs when they need to hire Coeyman’s garbage to represent them, doesn’t it?

Once the Dumpy – Dumplin’ and Dirty – Hands were out of the picture, the Town of Coeymans woke up and got smart: they hired a professional law enforcement veteran, Peter J. McKenna, to be Town of Coeymans police chief.

During the Dumpy – Dumplin Darlington’s stint with his sidekick Dirty – Hands Jerry Deluca, we regularly received 3 or more complaints against the Coeymans Police Department for violations of protected constitutional rights, favoritism, nepotism, abuse of police power, and any number of other violations and unethical conduct. We reported on it all on this blog.

In addition, the corrupt administration in Ravena village hall colluded with Dirty – Hands Jerry to get his wife, Cathy Deluca, a plum position with the Village as “director” of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, itself tainted with every imaginable kind of corruption, including misrepresentation of Deluca’s status to the Albany County Civil Service Commission to get her non – competitive civil service status. It didn’t take long for Cathy Deluca to kill the Ravena Fitness Center, something she had done before to at least 2 other fitness centers but no one in Ravena Village Hall seemed to care about wasting more than $105,000 a year on Cathy’s playpen. That went on for almost 3 years (= almost $300,000 in taxpayer dollars)! There was a clear Albany connection in all of this when you consider that the Warners, Nancy Warner, a village trustee, and Hal Warner, a former Albany cop and now village justice, had their daughter in the Albany County District Attorney’s office, the corrupt democrap Soares, and Darlington’s wife was a secretary in Soares’ office as well. Word is that Mrs Dumpy – Dumplin Darlington is now working as a secretary in Tom Dolan’s vote mill, the Choices program in Ravena. Will the incest never cease in Ravena – Coeymans?

Back to the Coeymans Police Department…

Since Chief Peter McKenna was hired to be Coeymans police chief, he has slashed the police department budget, put officers on the street, cleaned up the staff in the department, and has actively reached out and responded to the community. Chief McKenna has established effective liaison with the Albany County Sheriff and the New York State Police to avoid duplication of services and to improve security coverage in our area. In short, Chief McKenna has been a blessing to this community.

Anyone with a complaint or a problem can access the Chief to discuss the issues; if the Chief is not immediately available, he faithfully returns the call. We know that from personal experience.

Coeymans hasn’t experienced that kind of professionalism and response for generations, if ever!

We received a message from a local resident a couple of days ago that someone had posted a number of primitive and illiterate signs throughout the Coeymans area attacking the Coeymans police department and “thanking” Tom Dolan. All said and done, the message that the sign poster wanted to send was unclear. But the signs did prove one thing: local residents are so ignorant that they can’t even appreciate when they are being treated fairly. Those signs also prove that there’s no community, no unity in the RCS region. It’s a bunch of lost souls wandering on their own, still hiding behind idiotic childish signs. The intended messages of the signs was lost and all we can say from the signs is that someone wanted to express and opinion. But we later received an actual sign and we’re reproducing it below. We also got the story behind the signs.with all that asskissing breath like shit

Over the past 4 or so years of closely observing and monitoring the RCS community we have been able to identify one overriding characteristic: ANGER. The whole community is angry. Psychologically anger is the inability to accept reality. While that’s understandable, we have worked hard to get local residents to think about how to change things, how to turn that anger into positive action. But the bottom line seems to be that locals like being angry. But, dear readers, anger is so counterproductive; anger can also be a form of self – harm, as many of you already know. When people are angry they say and do stupid things. When you say something stupid it’s out there and you can’t call it back. When you do something stupid you can’t undo it, can you? So, when you’re angry and you like being angry, you obviously say and do stupid things, and so the conclusion is that you like saying and doing stupid things. In other words, you are angry about what’s happening to you but you do and say things that perpetuate and worsen the situation. You’re ignorant because you don’t know any better. You’re so ignorant that even when something good happens, you are still angry, and the vicious circle gets wider and wider until it includes everyone and everything.

A Local Resident, Daniel B, has an Ax to Grind

Coeymans Self-Help

Coeymans Self-Help

One version of the story is that a local resident, Daniel B, has an ax to grind allegedly because a minor accident occurred involving a town vehicle and Daniel B’s windshield. The story is that a small piece of material flew off the truck and damaged Daniel B’s windshield. Daniel B wanted the Coeymans police to issue a summons to the town or the town vehicle operator for the incident. No law was broken and Daniel B was advised that a summons could not be issued. Besides, it was explained, there is a sign on the back of the vehicle, “Do not follow,” so that such incidents can be avoided by not following too closely. Apparently Daniel B was unable or unwilling to accept the explanation and became angry. The signs began to appear. But is Daniel B. so stupid not to know that his insurance will more than cover the damage to his windshield…if he has insurance, that is.

Mr Daniel B's Statement of Ignorance/Anger

Mr Daniel B’s Statement of Ignorance/Anger

This is yet another instance where an individual vents his frustration and anger inappropriately, and puts his ignorance on public display. He accomplishes nothing. Why is it so hard for locals to use their heads and apply simple common sense? Why do locals insist on making asses of themselves? Why do locals bite the hands that feed them and bless the hands that beat them? Answer: It’s the biocultural model at work.


Here’s a bit of news: Coeyman’s very own psycho-cop is coming back. It seems Ryan Johnson has outlived his loan to the DEA and will soon be back to terrorize the streets of Coeymans. Beware of the creatures of the night! Lock your children in at night! The dark, evil side of Barney Fyfe on steroids will be coming back and allegedly will be on night duty. The dark will not be a safe place for Coeymans!

Crandall Board Puts Spin on Budget Error — Uses Censorship to Suppress Truth!

  • Urgent Correction and Apology: Back in November 2015, we wrote that Coeymans voters, having elected disgraced former town justice Phillip Crandal to be Coeymans Town Supervisor, and after having elected several local recycled politicos back into public office after having rejected them just four years ago, we must make the urgent correction to what we then wrote as well as extending an apology to town of Coeymans voters: We were in error when we wrote that the town of Coeymans deserves what they voted for; that was the error. The correction is: Not even Coeymans deserves what they now have sitting on the town board headed by disgraced ex – judge Phillip Crandal and his partners in crimes Tom Dolan, Jim Youmans, and that backstabbling sneaky arse, Dick [as in dork] Touchette, who you elected to the Albany County legislature. No, not even the ignorant and the corrupt of the town of Coeymans deserves that load of raw sewerage. And so we apologize for the error, and correct it.

Crandall Censors Flach Letter, Covers Crandall-Mob’s Back

Crooks and corruption covering for each other at the expense of honest employees and taxpayers

Phil Crandall's Truth Requires Censorship

Phil Crandall’s Version of Truth Requires Censorship

The most recent flood of misinformation that Phil Crandall and his mob are drowning the community in was discussed at the April 21, 2016, Coeymans town board meeting. The rather lengthy discussion focused on an alleged overpayment to about 8 town employees, allegedly all elected officials, and the majority of those being attacked are the opposition party. But guess What? In order to backstab the Republican elected officials, Crandall had to throw his two democrap town justices Kevin Reilly and George Dardiani and boardmember Tom Dolan under the bus, too. Crandall doesn’t even mention his pet judges in the minutes, and he makes certain to shower croney Dolan with thanks and gratitude to soften the blow. Crooks and corruption covering for each other at the expense of honest employees and taxpayers.


We have acquired papers that will shed some truth and light on the subject, something residents and taxpayers didn’t get at the town board meeting nor will they be likely to get anywhere but here.

Crandall and his co–conspirators wanted to make it pay–back time

First of all, let’s just say that the way Mr Crandall handled the issue was improper and simply not right. This is an internal matter that should have been handled internally, not thrown out into the public arena to be misinterpreted and to promote a scandal. But that’s apparently what Crandall and his co–conspirators wanted to make it pay–back time and to punish anyone not in their pockets or in bed with them.

Here’s why we say that:

pay-period leap year sidebarThe Officially Approved Minutes of the April 21, 2016 Coeymans Town Board Meeting are the only record available to the public to document what occurred at the town board meeting. The minutes were approved by the majority of the board, even if those minutes are nonsense and themselves reveal their own lack of credibility.

We have acquired the officially approved minutes of the Coeymans town board meeting, approved by Crandall, Dolan, Youmans, and Burns — Mr Langdon was excused and absent. In those minutes, Mr Crandall announces that “there was a mistake made in the town’s pay periods…last year [2015] here were 27 pay periods instead of 26, which happens every 11 years.” So far he’s being truthful but it stops there. You see, Coeymans town supervisor Phil Crandall and his cronies Tom Dolan and Jim Youmans are very uncomfortable with the truth—that is, if it’s not their specially cooked version of the truth.

Crandall reports information he had known some 5 weeks earlier but didn’t say anything. The information turned up after Sara Morrison, a CPA working “weekends” and being paid big bucks by voucher by Crandall’s administration, “audited” the 2015 budget, finding that the payroll for that period was divided by 26 rather than by 27; the result was that there was an “extra” pay period (two – week’s pay). Crandall says that Morrison brought this mistake to the former town supervisor’s attention back in April 2015 (Note the date!). But what Crandall is ignorant of is the fact that it’s not an “extra” pay period, and doesn’t represent an actual “overpayment” but is rather a normal calendar phenomenon that occurs every 11 years! It’s as natural as sunshine!

Let me stop here for a minute and tell you that the town of Coeymans uses an automated payroll software from BAS (Business Automation Services; to see what their municipal government package includes, go to Municipal Accounting, a business solutions provider in Clifton Park. The problem, it appears, was in the software being used, and how well it was doing what it was purchased to do. It wasn’t!

Not only was the BSA software to blame but the CPA, Sarah Morrison, and the other accounting/bookkeeping/payroll employees were apparently oblivious to the so-called “payroll leap year”, and failed to notify town employees that it was going to occur; not that that fact should have changed anything. The employees would still be entitled to the additional pay period, truth be told.

But here’s another failure in Crandall’s attempt to blacken Coeymans employees: The 2015 town budget was created and approved in late 2014, on November 19, 2014.That budget went into effect on January 1, 2015. Crandall was elected together with Youmans and Dolan in November 2015, and the Coeymans town budget was finalized in that same month (Tom Dolan actually worked on the 2015 and 2016 budgets) so we’d expect the incoming board, especially the incoming chief fiscal officer of the town, the supervisor, Mr Crandall, to be very well informed on the previous budget and the present budget. The current budget went into effect on January 1, 2016, the day Mr Crandall was sworn in to be Coeymans town supervisor.

Mr “Corruption” Crandall and his scheister minion David Wukitsch are using unfair intimidation tactics to scare employees into making good on the town accountants’ mistakes.

So, loyal readers, this whole hullabaloo about being overpaid is a big smoke and mirrors performance, a dog and pony act staged by Phil Crandall and his band of halfwits! According to the sidebar and the links above, 81% of employers just go with the flow every 11 years. So why all the publicity? In fact, if the town employees, whether exempt or non-exempt, hourly or salary, were not notified of the pay-period leap year effects and the possibility of a lower paycheck due to the 27 pay period cycle, and it was not spelled out in their contracts we don’t think that the town of Coeymans has any right to demand a reimbursement! It’s the town of Coeymans error, not the fault of the employees. Mr Corruption Crandall and his Scheister minion David Wukitsch are using unfair intimidation tactics to scare employees into making good on the towns accountants’ mistakes. Furthermore, they’re misusing their pubic office to misinform residents and taxpayers about the situation and trying to shift the blame to the innocent employees, while causing many of the unnecessary stress and anxiety not only by demanding that the employees pay back what 81% of normal employers would just accept as an 11-year rarity but also by tarnishing the employees’ images as public and elected officials. In our opinion, that’s tantamount to actionable defamation! How about a tort suit for defamation among other tort causes! Tuck that in your Depends® Mr Crandall and Mr Wukitsch! We say the affected employees should bring a lawsuit against the Crandall administration and their overpaid CPA, Sarah Morrison, and BAS!

What also irks us is the fact that while Crandall and his lackies are pointing fingers at innocent town employees who are only getting paid normally, Crandall, Youmans and Dolan are bringing back their cronies and hiring them, putting them on the town payroll. What about that cost to the town and taxpayers? Why did Crandall and his cronies increase the town planning board to 7 members, 2 more than Mr Flach felt was needed when he reduced the board to 5 members? Why does the town need to pay a high-priced CPA, Sarah Morrison, PLUS anonther overpaid dingo, Darryl Puritan (at more than $100/hr), plus Nita Chmielewski as town bookkeeper, PLUS Cindy Rowzee as an assistant bookkeeper?!?!?

We also think the affected employees who received Mr Wukitsch’s intimidation letter should file a formal complaint with the bar association because of Mr Wukitsch’s unprofessional conduct to the bar association and professional ethics enforcers. Misusing his position to wrongfully intimidate may result in disciplinary action being taken against him.

Yet another person comes on the stage with one Cathy Hanley, an employee of BAS, who allegedly prepares the W2 forms for Coeymans employees, who, Crandall claims, brought the error to former Coeymans bookkeeper, Matthew Weidman, who was replaced by Nita J. Chmielewski, former Coeymans town supervisor for a very short time before she had to resign because of math mistakes in the town budget that led back to her. She can’t do math but now she’s the town of Coeymans bookkeeper. Go figure! Only in Coeymans!

And so are the Coeymans town board!

And so are the Coeymans town board!

Editor’s note: As far as we have been able to discover, the town of Coeymans has quite a number of people involved in bookkeeping and payroll other than BAS. In addition to Sarah Morrison who bills by voucher and gets paid megabucks, there’s Darrell Puritan who, as a “weekend worker” — whatever that is — gets at least $100/hour, then there’s Nita Chmielewski, who is clerk to the supervisor, and also replaced M. Weidman as town bookkeeper despite her dubious math skills, and then there’s Cindy Rowzee who was hired to be Crandall’s part-time confidential secretary but also works as an assistant bookkeeper. Sounds like financial overkill to us. But after all this financial talent is taken into consideration, we are still dealing with a phony “payroll mistake.” How does that work, anyway? We’d like to ask who’s getting the kickbacks from all of this financial overkill?

This boils down to several important facts, which Mr Crandall conveniently fails to observe. First of all, how could Morrison audit a budget that was not yet fully implemented for 2015. You see, the budget for the fiscal year 2015 was proposed and finalized in November 2014, and went into effect on January 1, 2015. That budget was not yet fully implemented by April 2015 and so really couldn’t have been “audited”. Moreover, if Cathy Hanley, an employee of BSA allegedly brought her observations to the attention of the then town bookkeeper, Matthew Weidman, Mr Weidman certainly would have made a note of the “error” then. But what puzzles us is that Mr Crandall says that a contract employee of the town of Coeymans, CPA Sarah Morrison informed former supervisor Stephen Flach of the “error.” Certainly, anyone who knows Flach would have to admit that this is not the sort of thing Mr Flach would have pooh – poohed and swept under the carpet; truth be told, Stephen Flach was honest to a flaw and as ethical as can be, which probably led to his downfall to the scoundrels. But there was no mistake, no error, in reality no overpayment at all! It’s all a fraud cooked up by Crandall and his minions!

No! Our analysis of the facts and the documents tells a completely different story

No! Our analysis of the facts tells a completely different story than what Mr Crandall and his hoodlums would have the public believe. You see, BSA and their software are the real culprits. BSA apparently failed to take into account the gremlin that occurred every 11 years, and as a company providing business solutions they should have known of this occurrence! Think of it this way: When you buy income – tax filing software you expect it to be correct and accurate and your tend to trust it. Right? You don’t expect to have to check their formulas and figures against the tax code do you? Same thing applies to business solutions software like BSA’s. They claim their product does something and does it right; it’s not up to Mr Flach or Mr Weidmann to go back and check their software codes and algorithms to ensure that the BSA software works properly. Wouldn’t that be something Darryl Puritan — Oh! Puritan is another financial braniac who gets paid more than $100/hr as a weekend employee by the town of Coeymans — or Ms Sarah Morrison, another one who’s billing Coeymans megabucks for financial advice, should have caught and fixed? And does Mr Crandall expect that the affected town employees should have gone back to the software to check that it caught the 11 – year gizmo? Hell no! So why would Mr Crandall, in a public meeting, make it all sound like he was a hero and found this horrible misconduct, that is, Mr Flach and the affected employees had attempted to hide the fact that they had been overpaid — the so-called “overpayment” was spread out over 11 years that it amounted to less than 4%! In fact, it wasn’t an overpayment at all but a normal payment in a payroll leap year! Furthermore, it would not have become apparent until the end of the fiscal year, not in April 2015, not even halfway into the budget year! What’s the disgraced judge trying to pull here? Whatever it is he’s trying to feed us he was much better at fixing tickets for Tom Dolan and Dick Touchette. We were safer when he was a crooked judge; it’s hopeless now that he’s a crooked town supervisor.

Crandall's Snow Job

Crandall’s Snow Job

What’s more telling is that if you look at the political affiliations of the employees who allegedly were “overpaid” we find that 2/3 of the affected employees are Republicans! And guess What? The other third are Democrats but it gets even better. Two of the Democrats are sitting Coeymans town justices, Kevin Reilly and George Dardiani (tell you something about our judges? Are they all in bed with Crandall?) and the most scandalous is that the third Democrat is no less than Tom Dolan!!!! Dolan was on the board when the alleged payroll “error” in the 2015 budget was made!!! So say what you like, it seems to us that Crandall is taking pot shots at the opposition and, while thanking Tom Dolan profusely at the public meeting, doesn’t breath a word about the Democrap town justices who were “overpaid” as well!

It’s important to note that Coeymans Police Chief, Peter J. McKenna, was mentioned in the discussion but it must be made absolutely clear that the Chief was not overpaid; he actually took a pay cut!!! But Crandall never clarified that during the discussions and it’s not clear in the minutes either.Was the “oversight” intended to include the chief in the overpayment scandal without doing so directly and falsely? Now that’s pretty underhanded, isn’t it? But it’s Crandall all the way.

Former Coeymans supervisor’s Letter was to be read into the record but was censored by a dishonest and disgraced former judge…Phil Crandall

And what’s this about Phil Crandall refusing to let Mr Stephen Flach’s letter be read by town board member Kenneth Burns?!? The letter was addressed to the people of the town of Coeymans thru their town council! So we’re going to reproduce the text Mr Flach’s letter below. It was written to be read at the meeting into the official record but was censored by a dishonest and disgraced former judge who was forbidden ever to run for judicial office again but was elected to be town supervisor. Phil Crandall may be able to silence a Ken Burns but Crandall can’t silence this blog!!!

In a letter dated May 3, 2016, Mr Flach writes, verbatim:

Dear Town Board.

I received a letter from the attorney to the Town about an overpayment to me from December 2015. There was a pay periods that ended on 12 / 23 / 2015 [December 23,2015]. I paid that out on 12 / 30 / 2015 [December 30, 2015] I I thought that the last week of December and going into January was the 27th pay period, thus Peter Masti and I did not get paid for the last week of December, not realizing that it was already the 27th pay period the week before. I have enclosed a check back to the Town for the amount that was overpaid to me on December 30th. I made a mistake and I apologize to the board, the taxpayers, and those who were overpaid. I have encouraged those who were overpaid to reimburse the Town as soon as possible. I would hope that the town officials would give [redacted], [redacted], and anyone else affected, the time they need to pay this back.

I have not been involved with the Town since I left on December 31st and continue to hope that the current board does a great job as the elected officials in running the Town and doing what is best for the residents. Working for the Town is about serving the people with character and integrity, and I thank you for your service. It is unfortunate that some of the employees that are working for you are only interested in vengeance and not just doing their job. I pray that you five men continue to do your best for our town, and move our town forward.

Sincerely,
/  / signature/ /
Stephen Flach

Mr Flach enclosed his check in reimbursement of the alleged overpayment.

David Wukitsch, Coeymans town attorney, who, by the way was fired by the town of New Baltimore because he was allegedly a jerk

Several town employees addressed a joint letter to Phil Crandall as town supervisor and chief fiscal officer protesting how ineptly the matter was being handled and how it cast innocent employees in a false light. We think the letter is much too weak, but then we don’t have to work with Crandall and his mob on a day – to – day basis. The employees object to the ultimatum letter sent by David Wukitsch, town attorney, who, by the way was fired by the town of New Baltimore because he was a jerk. The employees complain that they were not properly notified of the overpayment and were never met with to discuss the amount allegedly owed. It must be said, though, that even Wukitsch’s letter states that it was a “payroll error”, that is, not the fault of the employees if the payroll people did not make the adjustment. It is unconscionable that Wukitsch tells the employees that they should reimburse the town “within the next 30 days.” How would you feel if in 30 days you would have to cough up more than $1,000.00 for something not your fault, even beyond your control?

Mr Burns really needs to get a pair of balls…He doesn’t need Phil Crandall’s blessing.

Now, we ask you, Why? wouldn’t Mr Crandall want this to be read into the record by Mr Kenneth Burns? What right does Mr Crandall have to censor this letter? Well, knowing Mr Crandall, Mr Dolan, and Mr Youmans, it’s clear that if this letter were read into the record, it would certainly have taken the edge off of their underhanded attack! But Mr Burns really needs to get a pair of balls; he doesn’t need Phil Crandall’s blessing to read a letter into the record if he so wishes.

Here’s another fact for our readers to ponder when thinking about Mr Crandall’s unscrupulous and dishonest tactics: Mr Crandall and Mr Youmans were campaigning for public office well in advance of November 2015. In fact, Jim “Bully” Youmans is a former town supervisor and should have been familiar with the 11–year issue, so why didn’t he catch it. He had an awful lot to say while he was campaigning! He should have at least acknowledged that it could easily be missed. But Tom “Dithering” Dolan has been on the board through several, at least 5 town budget proceedings, and he’s been blundering around town hall for even longer. In fact, he was involved in drafting, presenting and finalizing the 2015 town budget. Why didn’t he catch it back then? You see, it would be terribly inconvenient for Mr Crandall to have to admit that he and his cronies are just as much at fault as anyone else for not catching the so-called “mistake”. But they should have.

Mr Flach’s letter emphasizes Mr Flach’s integrity and honesty, and casts a very dark shadow on the Crandall administration

As to why he wouldn’t want Mr Flach’s letter read publically we can only say that Mr Flach’s letter emphasizes Mr Flach’s integrity and honesty and casts a very dark shadow on the Crandall administration. Yes, as Mr Flach writes, “it is unfortunate that some of the employees that are working for you are only interested in vengeance and not [in] just doing their job.” It’s non Crandall’s watch and under his questionable leadership that this is all happening, and it’s Mr Crandall and his cronies Youmans and Dolan who are dropping the ball and true to form, they’re trying to paint someone black for it. You can’t change them but you’re stuck with them for at least another 3 years or until someone sends them to jail. We do wonder, however, that Mr Flach was so quick to reimburse an overpayment that never was. We think he should have consulted an accountant before having done that.

Crandall is trying to scapegoat innocent, hard-working civil servants to bolster his own sick ego and to cover up his administration’s total lack of credibility and focus. Don’t take his bait; don’t fall into his trap!

There’s more and we’ll report on it in an upcoming article. Stay tuned we’ve got some dirt on Nita J. Chmielewski, the town planning board padding by Phil Crandall, and some really good stuff on the Coeymans – Carver Companies asbestos battle. It seems that it’s going to go to court…and you’re going to pay the tab for Crandall’s vendettas. But we now have names and we’re going to go public with them. Enjoy your town board, Coeymans. You asked for it.

Editor’s Note: Residents and taxpayers in other surrounding towns should be asking these same questions. Has New Baltimore missed the 11-year gremlin? Can New Baltimore residents and taxpayers be expecting their elected officials and public servants to be writing reimbursement checks to the town? More on this later.

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 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!

AMBUSH! New Information on Coeymans vs Laraway!

We recently published an article about the town of Coeymans and another AMBUSH, this time on Carver Laraway, Give them enough rope and the Coeymans Board expose themselves, and later provided an UPDATE in our article, News Shorts to Keep You Updated…Briefly. In both articles, we exposed the town of Coeymans’ Code Enforcement Office’s pattern of AMBUSH on private citizens and businesses, and how the Coeymans Code Enforcement officers’ pattern of AMBUSH is an abuse of public office and an abuse of power. We suggested that there is a more sinister aspect to this pattern of AMBUSH, and it’s about time someone with Carver Laraway’s resources stepped forward to expose the Coeymanazi criminals for what they are: RATS.

After learning about the screw-job Carver Laraway received at the hands of the Coeymans Code Enforcement Office then they ambushed him by going behind his back to the Department Labor on a cooked up violation of sorts, we investigated the facts and found some interesting information, information that every resident of the town of Coeymans must be interested in. Here’s what we found:

unite against corruption
The Albany Times Union published a very inaccurate report on the incident involving the demolition of a derelict property at 84 Main Street in the hamlet of Coeymans. But what can you expect from the Albany Times Useless? We smelled a rat and so we started asking questions.

Initially, we had to put two-and-two together: the Crandallite board with its recycled rejects Dolan and Youmans. The firing of Laverne “Larry” Conrad from the position he held and abused for years as Coeymans Code Enforcement officer. The suspicious hiring of Larry Conrad by Carver Laraway as a consultant, after Conrad was fired by the new Coeymans board. Carver Laraway’s attempts to purchase derelict properties in the hamlet of Coeymans and the suspicious scandals that seem to arise, usually involving the Coeymans town hall. The conditions imposed on the purchase of 84 Main Street. The completed demolition of the building and THEN the suspicious involvement of the New York State Department of Labor and the stoppage of the work and issuance of a violation for some trumped up pretense.

[Editor’s Note: This is not a first-time occurrence of the town of Coeymans Code Enforcement office issuing permits, allowing a resident to complete the work covered by the permit, and then going behind the resident’s back and reporting a violation to a state agency with the issue of a violation against the resident! More on this later.]

Since the Times Union article raised the question of Who owns 84 Main Street? Well, we thought that would be a no-brainer. Why would there be any question of Who owns 84 Main Street? Certainly the town of Coeymans should know who owns the property! But the Times Union reported that the town of Coeymans was uncertain who owned the property! In fact, at a discussion at a recent public meeting of the town of Coeymans town board: it was a ping-pong match between the board members asking Who owns 84 Main Street? Well, wouldn’t the town Assessor know who owns the property? Would’t the Code Enforcement Office have to know who owns the property, in order to issue a Demolition Permit? Why would Carver Laraway be demolishing a building he didn’t hold title to? Or, if Carver Laraway was demolishing a building he didn’t own, he’d have to be doing that for the owner, Right? Well, nothing added up in this situation, so we decided to find out who owns the building.

To make a long story short, we visited the Coeymans town hall and asked to see the tax rolls. At first the property identification number couldn’t be found in the normal tax rolls, Mr Santee DeBacco, the Code Enforcement Officer on duty at the time of our visit, couldn’t provide any information, but one on-the-ball employee in the Town Clerk’s office found the property in the tax exempt properties, where it was shown to be owned by the town of Coeymans! Now WHY? wouldn’t the Code Enforcement Office or the Coeymans town board know this? Answer: Because they had something to hide. That’s why.

So we FOILed the relevant documents under the New York State Freedom of Informtation Law. We asked for: (1) All demolition permits issued for the past year, (2) All information regarding special conditions imposed on the sale of derelict or foreclosure properties in the town of Coeymans, and (3) All town of Coeymans laws, regulations and guidelines relating to asbestos containment.

First of all, the town of Coeymans produced NO documents relating to Coeymans laws, regulations and guidelines on asbestos containment. The hazards associated with asbestos in buildings and the connection between asbestos and life-threatening diseases like mesothelioma, a cancer of the lungs, have been known for decades. Literally dozens of buildings have been taken down in the town of Coeymans, most of them old and almost all of them containing asbestos in one form or another. But Coeymans has no laws, regulations or guidelines for asbestos containment. Your town government working for you. Bullshit!

So, since the town of Coeymans has no basis to screw with Carver Laraway while his crews are removing an eyesore from Coeymans Hamlet, the next best thing is to go to the State of New York —those whores will do anything to get a fine, and they’re corrupt as hell— which is exactly what the rats in Coeymans town hall did. They couldn’t cook up something so they let the state of New York do their dirty work for them, which the New York State Department of Labor, like the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is very willing to do, regardless of the facts and with no real interest in them either. State steps in and stops the work, which was pretty much done already, and issues a violation. And here is where it gets sticky.

Now remember that Larry Conrad, former Coeymans Code Enfocement officer, was fired by the newly elected Coeymans town board. Keep in mind that Larry Conrad was pretty cozy with Carver Laraway, while Conrad was Coeymans CEO, so cozy in fact that when Conrad was fired, Laraway hired him on as an “advisor.” That was Carver Laraway’s way of saying Thank you, Larry! for all the favors and support. Well, it wasn’t enough for Phil Crandall, Coeymans town supervisor, and his henchmen to just fire stupid old Larry, they followed him to Carver Laraway, and decided to kill a couple of turkeys with one shot.

The documents we received from the town of Coeymans show without a doubt that the town of Coeymans owns 84 Main Street in the hamlet of Coeymans, and owned the property while Laraway was demolishing it, and Coeymans still owns the property.

The town produced 11 demolition permits for the period of January 1, 2015 to February 1, 2016. Of those permits 5 were signed by Larry Conrad (for the period of February to December 2015) and 6 were signed by John Cashin, who was hired after Conrad was fired; Cashin signed the 6 permits issued in 2016 (5 in January 2016 and 1 in February 2016).

One of the permits issued on October 21, 2015, for the “Demolition of a Three-Family Dwelling. This dwelling has been deemed unsafe for occupancy.”, shows it to be property No. 168.12-2-3, located at 84 Main Street, Coeymans, and owned by the town of Coeymans. The permit is signed by none other than Larry Conrad. Carver Laraway is not mentioned anywhere on that Demolition Permit. Case closed! Coeymans owns the building!

We then examined the document provided by the clerk’s office regarding special conditions on the sale of derelict or seized properties in the town of Coeymans and Guess what we found there? The document is entitled: “NOTICE SEEKING OFFERS TO PURCHASE REAL PROPERTY” and is asking for “bids to purchase real property presently owned by the Town [of Coeymans].” The Notice states “the Town [of Coeymans] will provide the successful bidder with a Quit Claim Deed to the properties.” The Notice also sets forth the “terms” of the request for bids. The Notice has this to say about 84 Main Street:

84 Main Street, Coeymans, New York — Parcel #168.12-2-3. This is a three-family residence which is presently vacant, located on approximately .06 acres of land. the structure is unsafe. Therefore, the Town will require the successful bidder to tear down the building within 90 days of contract. Title will not be transferred until this condition is met. Proof of financial ability to perform the demolition must be established to the satisfaction of the Town

 So, there you have it. If the town of Coeymans provided all of the information required under the Freedom of Information Law, and did not hide anything, it is very clear that the town of Coeymans owns the property at 84 Main Street, Coeymans. What the documents do not answer is Why? town of Coeymans officials and the Coeymans town board would not admit that the town of Coeymans owns the property and Why? the Times Union published the false facts relating to the incident.

Well, it really shouldn’t come as a surprise because the Albany Times Union has always been a tool, a prostitute, serving special interests in the town of Coeymans and elsewhere, publishing anything that serves the liberal democrap agenda. This is no exception.

The same applies to the state of New York departments of Labor and Environmental Conservation. The record and history shows that at least those two New York state departments dance to the Coeymanazi tune. Larry Conrad, when he was Coeymans Code Enforcement officer was part of the machine but when he was fired by his enemies, he became the enemy.

We will be reporting on Larry Conrad’s involvement with a disgraceful AMBUSH on a local business and property owner. Again, Conrad was issuing permits, misleading the permit holder, and then going behind the permit holder’s back to the State Department of Environmental Conservation, to screw the permit holder. Conrad was good at doing favors for his Coeymanazi handlers. But now, it seems the shoe is on the other foot.

shoe on other foot

The conclusion that has to be drawn from the very documents provided by the town of Coeymans is that the town of Coeymans is the owner of the property at 84 Main Street in Coeymans. The fact is the rats in the Coeymans Code Enforcement office blew it when they reported Carver Laraway to their cronies at the state Department of Labor, who conveniently issued a violation and stopped the demolition work; the violation is or should be against the town of Coeymans, the real owners of the building and the ones responsible for the demolition or any violations. You asked for it Coeymans residents! We told you so! But you just had to put Phil Crandall, Tom Dolan, Jim Youmans back in public office so they could continue abusing you. You just love it, don’t you, Coeymans?

The town of Coeymans is still playing its stupid corrupt games. Again, they’ve been found out! Question is: When will anyone do anything about it…that is, other than us at Smalbany?

News Shorts to Keep You Updated…Briefly

Who Owns 84 Main Street in Coeymans Hamlet?

Update on our story Give them enough rope and the Coeymans Board expose themselves

That’s a pretty sticky question in Coeymans town hall these days. You see, as usual the facts are pretty illusive and vague, the Times Useless prints one thing, Coeymans town hall says another thing, the Coeymans town board just seems to be in a ping-pong match bouncing the question back and forth until they finally decide to call in Guess who? — the lawyers. The Coeymans town board has handed the question over to scheister David Wukitsch and Donald Zee to answer this burning question.

It seems that no one in Coeymans town hall can agree on who owns the property that was the subject recently of a New York State Department of Labor intervention and the town stopping Carver Laraway’s efforts to tear down a derelict building — but only after it was leveled to the ground — at 84 Main Street in the Hamlet of Coeymans.

This entire question of Who owns No. 84 Main Street? raises a number of questions about the competence of the Crandall town board, John Cashin’s and Santee Debacco’s competence as code enforcement officers for the town of Coeymans, and Who’s the rat in Coeymans town hall?

So we went to the assessment rolls to find out who owns No. 84. The SBL (section block number) for the property is 168.12-2-3 and it’s listed under Tax Exempt Properties and clearly shows the owner to be the town of Coeymans! Imaging that! The Coeymans Assessor lists the property as tax exempt and owned by the town of Coeymans. Now WHY? didn’t Mr Phil Crandall, supervisor of the town of Coeymans, or any of his board know that? And where was the town assessor and the two code enforcement officers while the meeting was going on? Your guess is as good as mine!

That raises other questions, too. First of all, Why was Carver Laraway demolishing a building that officially is owned by the town of Coeymans? That would make the town of Coeymans responsible as the owners for the demolition, wouldn’t it? And then it would make the town of Coeymans responsible for any contractors involved in tearing down the building. Right? So that leaves Carver Laraway out of the liability picture. But it also creates problems for the town of Coeymans like: The rat is in town hall and reported the demolition to the New York State Department of Labor, throwing in the town of Coeymans instead of Laraway. That would make the town of Coeymans responsible for any violations issued by the state and gets Laraway off the hook. That’s the doctrine of respondeat superior where the employer is liable for any unlawful conduct of an employee, including contractors. The only ones stupid enough to do something like this are Phil Crandall, Jim Youmans, Tom Dolan or even Rick “the Dick” Touchette, they all have a woody for Carver Laraway. But our guess would be that it was Tom Dolan; he’s the only one vile enough to do something that stupid and have it backfire on the town. 

And guess what?!? The violation is all about asbestos containment and the town of Coeymans has no local laws, rules or guidelines relating to asbestos!!! Now doesn’t that come as a surprise? Decades of asbestos in the news and Coeymans has nothing on the books about asbestos. 

We’ve asked for demolition permits issued for the past year, any Coeymans codes on asbestos, and any stipulations connected with sales of local derelict properties. We’ll keep you informed because the Ravena News Herald won’t and you can’t expect any truth coming from the town board.


New Program May be Coming to the RCS Community Library 

With the A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes moving into expansion facilities at 9 Main Street in Ravena, Ravena residents and residents in the greater Coeymans and northeastern Greene county have finally a choice, at least in death. The A.J. Cunningham operation has occupied the former Pero Memorial Chapel and have posted an A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes sign outside but they’ve done little else. Not even a holiday wreath on the place. They’ve made the effort to elbow in on Sharon Babcock’s little captive empire of death but are they serious about succeeding in Ravena? We won’t waste space telling you about A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes because they have a website at http://ajcunninghamfh.com/. Read about them for yourselves.

A New Trend in Death Awareness

A new death awareness is taking larger cities in Europe and the US by storm and they’re called death cafés. Death cafés began in about 2004, when Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz started hosting impromptu pop-up meetings called cafes mortals in Switzerland. Crettaz studies death in his research but the popular events spread like wildfire in Europe. In 2011, the events started in the United Kingdom and popped up all over London. North American death cafés began in Ohio, and are organized in New Mexico, Michigan, Vancouver, B.C., California, Illinois, New York, and elsewhere. The popularity of the events is a clear indicator that people want, need to discuss dying, death, and living in a safe environment where they can openly talk about life’s greatest mystery, death.

Well, discussions are underway between the organizer of Thanatology Café and the RCS Community Library to start the Capital District’s first death discussion group right here in Ravena. The RCS Community Library has been doing a tremendous job in creating new programs for the RCS community under the leadership of Judith Wines, library director, Carol Malewsky, specialist research librarian, and Bryan Rowzee, IT guru for the library, so the time is right to bring in a new program. So why not one as controversial and interesting as death itself.

The program is slated to start in early to mid-March 2016 and discussions are in their early stages but very encouraging and positive. We’d suggest that anyone in the greater capital district visit the Thanatology Café blog to learn more about the program. Once you find you are interested in joining the program, just let the facilitator know by leaving your contact information and your specific death interests in an email to thanatology.cafe@gmail.com. Of course, all communications are confidential.

Coeymans Court Shuts Down for Two Weeks!
Justice in Coeymans ‘On Hold’

Court on Hold

Sign appearing in Coeymans town hall town court office window. Justice suspended!

Who ever heard of such a thing? Coeymans court with two full-time (G. Dardiani) town justices George Dardiani and Kevin Reilly have suspended justice in the town of Coeymans for two full weeks! 

We don’t get it. Does that mean that pleas and tickets are suspended, too? We have a question also about conflicts of interest with the town justice, Kevin Reilly, who is being paid both as a full-time town justice and as a part-time court clerk. Sounds like that should be just wrong, doesn’t it? Well, suspending justice in the town of Coeymans is nothing new; but how can you suspend something that never was in the first place? We might well ask whether they suspended their paychecks too?

The only worse place is in Ravena village court where they make their own rules. Now who is running against that old pervert Harold “Hal” Warner — the same Hal Warner who stabbed his fellow village justice Phil Crandall, now Coeymans town supervisor, in the back — and his village supervisor, his wife, Nancy Warner. We see they’re both trying to get re-elected this coming March. Old Justice-bender Hal Warner is just a cash generator at your expense for the village. The prosecutor may want to propose a fine of $200 but old Hal wants to raise some money for the village so he ups the fine — at your expense — to $300 or so, unless, of course, you’re one of the insiders and then it’s a parking ticket. Could old Justice-bender Hal be out to embarrass anyone from David Soares office since Hal and Nancy’s daughter, Carmen Warner, was fired from Soares office for posting lewd images of herself and another female on Facebook? Carmen was later hired by the Biscone law firm. Part of the Ravena Incest Club. That’s a Ravena mindset: I’m gonna get you but I’m gonna make Ravena residents pay for it. Perish the thought! Would vendetta, revenge ever enter into a village official’s empty little pinhead? Answer: You bet your ass it does! Ask any Ravena resident whose name doesn’t end in a vowel!


Bill Bailey Running Again?!?

Warner pair, Nancy & Hal, running again!

Warner pair, Nancy & Hal, running again!

Unbelievable! The freak show continues in Ravena. Not only are we seeing two fossils, two major freaks, Nancy Warner and hubby Harold “Hal” Warner asking Ravena voters to show how stupid they can be and re-elect the vampire pair, we also have dithering dumbo Bill Bailey running again! But just to show how useless and ineffective he really is, both the Democraps and the Retardicans have cross endorsed Bailey! If you can read between the lines, that means that they can’t find anyone less threatening than Bill Bailey to be on the Ravena village board and neither the Democraps nor the Retardicans want to risk anyone with even half a rat’s brain to possibly get on the board to shake things up!

Bill Bailey Running Again


Local Dentist May Have a Big Toothache

Update on our story Local Dentists. Are you being abused, taken for a ride in the chair?

You may have seen the glaring banner advertisement across the front page of the Ravena News Herald —not especially known for its ethics or its facts— placed by Coxsackie Dental Arts. Well, after all is said and done, Mr Kurt David Froehlich, the dentist operating Coxsackie Dental Arts, PLLC, may have a toothache of his own.

Coxsackie dentist Kurt D. Froehlich and Coxsackie Dental Arts may have a toothache of their own.

Coxsackie dentist Kurt D. Froehlich and Coxsackie Dental Arts may have a toothache of their own.

A local resident who visited Froehlich’s practice last year has filed a multi-allegation complaint for fraud, abuse, professional misconduct against Froehlich and Coxsackie Dental Arts with the NYS Department of Education, Professional Misconduct Enforcement, the NYS Attorney General’s Office, and the Greene County District Attorney, and the resident’s dental insurance company.

The resident has produced pretty convincing evidence that Ole Yanker Froehlich has been playing loose and crooked in his billing practices and his so-called care provided to patients.

Froehlich advertises a 15% discount for seniors and veterans but may charge up to 3-times what other local dentists charge for the same procedure. Pretty slick and shady if you ask us.

The complaint also alleges violations of professional licensing standards not only by Froehlich but also by two dental assistants employed by Coxsackie Dental Arts.

Coxsackie Dental Arts, PLLC is located on Route 9W in the town of Coxsackie. Our advice: Fraud and misconduct is rampant in the dental professions if the media coverage and the journal articles are to be believed. Even the American Dental Association, the ADA, has to admit that fraud in the dental office is a big problem and they have even published a manual on the subject. Be very careful selecting a dentist, insist on knowing what your dental care is going to cost and how much your dental plan covers; you are likely to be held liable for whatever your plan doesn’t cover. Ask questions, lots of questions. At the first sign of suspect conduct, contact the NYS Professional Misconduct Enforcement unit at the NYS Department of Education, Office of the Professions: New York’s Professional Misconduct Enforcement System.

Give them enough rope and the Coeymans Board expose themselves

You know, town of Coeymans residents are like the stripper who bares it all at a biker convention and then complains that she’s been sexually harassed. First of all, the majority of you eligible voters don’t vote! Second of all the voting irregularities and fixing in the town of Coeymans, including the manipulation of candidates, seem to go unnoticed but what would you expect in Albany county, the very heartland of corruption! And then there are the Coeymans voters who take every opportunity to do what’s right and f**k it up. When all is said and done, after totally abusing yourselves and making absolute corndogs of yourselves, you bitch about what’s going on in the town of Coeymans. WTF!!!

Last November you elected a bunch of dipshits for positions in the Albany County legislature (Dick Touchette) and on the Coeymans town board (Crandall, Youmans, Dolan) and no one raised a finger to question how a bunch of former rejects and disgraced public figures could be re-elected to public office! So you swore in the sorry bunch of moral cripples and captains of corruption in January. We just sat back and kept quiet, giving them enough time…and rope…to trip themselves up. And Guess what? The waiting paid off with dividends!

ambush

It didn’t take much time for the corrupt Crandallite board to ambushed Mr Carver Laraway with the help of Coeymans code enforcement.

Same old bullshit and the same names are involved. It’s common knowledge that Crandall and his mob have no love for Laraway and it was only a matter of time before the rats attacked.

There seems to be a pattern in this sort of Coeymans conspiracy: You hand out permits, get someone to rely on the paperwork, and then you go behind their backs and get the State of New York, either the Department of Labor or the DEC to do your dirty work for you.

Conrad managed to get off scot free by burying creeks on Camille Drive

No sooner did the Crandalite mobsters on the Coeymans town board fire Laverne “Larry” Conrad from the position of Coeymans code enforcement officer, which he has held for years, and throughout the entire period he managed to play dirty with whom members of the Coemanazi insiders club had an axe to grind. Conrad managed to get off scot free by burying creeks on Camille Drive but the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation didn’t have much to say about that; seems there was some political wheeling and dealing going on there. But Larry Conrad, sneaky sockpuppet that he was and still is, issued permits to a local business and then went behind their backs to notify the DEC of some sort of cooked up non-compliance. That’s how they work in Coeymans; sneaky ambush.

Wouldn’t you think that when the town of Coeymans issues a permit, it would have all the facts? Just ask Larry Conrad about issuing permits and then screwing the permit holder. So they hire John Cashin, a New Baltimoron, who issues permits and then all of a sudden the Department of Labor shuts down the permit holder. See a pattern here, anyone?

Well, according to an article appearing in the Times Useless on Tuesday, February 9, 2016, “State shuts down Coeymans demolition. Coeymans supervisor says asbestos abatement an issue,” current Coeymans code enforcement officer John Cashin, is playing the same games as Larry Conrad did. This time the victim is Carver Laraway and Larry Conrad, who was hired by Laraway. Here’s what the Times Useless has to say:

shoot-self-in-foot“The state Labor Department on Tuesday ordered Port of Coeymans owner Carver Laraway to stop work on a blighted house he is knocking down on Main Street.

“Coeymans code enforcement officer John Cashin said a representative from the state told him that Carver Construction is not on a list of certified demolition contractors. Supervisor Philip Crandall said the concern has to do with proper asbestos abatement and disposal at the 84 Main St. site, a dilapidated house squeezed between two other buildings.

“The house was already knocked down and the pile of rubble is still at the site.

“A state-issued “notice of violation and order to comply” was left at the site.

Larry Conrad, the town’s former building inspector who now does contract work for Laraway, responded on Laraway’s behalf Tuesday, saying the town still owns the property and that “generally speaking blighted buildings underneath municipalities usually don’t have to go through any of the paperwork. However, there seems to be some questions over how that was handled, I guess, improperly or whatever.”

“Crandall said he consulted David Wukitsch, the town’s attorney, who said Laraway owns the property.”

John Cashin getting cozy with the New York State Department of Labor

Stool pigeon? Snitch? Rat? John Cashin getting cozy with the New York State Department of Labor

So now we have permit-finagling Larry Conrad on contract to Carver Laraway in return for past favors but Larry Conrad is just as ignorant now as he was before! Carver Laraway is just as stupid as Coeymans residents because he hired Coeymans refuse, the discarded former code enforcement officer, Larry Conrad. Now, with Conrad misadvising him or bullshitting him —because that’s what Conrad does best; if you got no brains you gotta use bullshit— and the corrupt local town hall with its snitch in code enforcement, Coeymans lives up to its name Reubenville… Oops! Coeymanaziville.

It’s a well-known fact that Crandall and his cronies, including Rick ” the Dick” Touchette, who was recently elected to the Albany county legislature by local dumbasses, have a vendetta against Carver Laraway. That’s likely one of the reasons they got rid of Larry Conrad, a Carver Laraway supporter. Well, it’s obvious he was cozy with Carver Laraway because no sooner was Conrad terminated from his position with the town of Coeymans than he was hired by Laraway. That wouldn’t be because of some favors that might have been done and cashed in, would it? After all, Carver Laraway and his companies did get some good deals from the town of Coeymans in the past couple of years. But that’s not to say that Carver Laraway and the Carver Companies haven’t done for the town of Coeymans what generations of crooked elected officials have failed to do. At least Carver Laraway —despite the efforts of the likes of Phil Crandall, Tom Dolan, Rick “the Dick” Touchette and thier lackeys— has tried to build up and clean up the dump we know as Coeymans!

Several questions and concerns arise from this incident. —Now that’s apart from the Albany Times Union’s typical indifference to the truth of the facts it prints and the creative writing skills of its staff fiction writers.— First of all, there seems to be a question of who owns the building that was demolished! The fact is that Carver Laraway’s teams were working at the scene for three days, stopping traffic, and partially closing down Main Street in Coeymans hamlet. How can it be that town officials didn’t notice that the crews were tearing down a building and stopping traffic on Main St/River Road? And do you think Carver Laraway would be tearing down a building that he didn’t own?!? Carver Laraway is in the construction/demolition business and has been for years; he’s made millions doing what he does. Do you think for a minute that he’s dumb enough to forget to comply with regulations? Maybe he’s dumb enough to have trusted Coeymans town hall to do things honestly and straightforward, like issuing permits and doing that properly? Yeah, that’s pretty dumb.

Then there’s the question of Why? it took Coeymanazi town supervisor, Phil Crandall, and his New Baltimoron code enforcement officer, John Cashin, three days to note the building was being demolished? And why did Coeymanazi town supervisor Phil Crandall have to consult the town’s scheister lawyer, David Wukitsch, who was fired from his position as New Baltimore town attorney, as to who owned the building?!? And do you think for a minute that the New York State Department of Labor is keeping tabs on what’s going on in Coeymans hamlet, that someone might be demolishing a derelict eyesore property? That is, without the help of a local stool pigeonwith an agenda? Yes, like Larry Conrad was with previous administrations, there’s another rat in town hall who takes orders and does the backstabbing for the crooks at the top. Nothing’s changed in Coeymans.

And another question: Doesn’t the town of Coeymans issue demolition permits? If a demolition permit was issued, wouldn’t the town have to verify ownership? Verify safety precautions? Verify compliance with laws, regulations, codes connected with tearing down buildings and disposing of the rubble? There are a lot of unanswered questions here and most of them point to the corruption of local elected officials, the Crandallites, the Youmansites, the Dolanites and the New Baltimoron lackeys like Cashin! Listen up, Coeymans, these are the jerks you elected to take care of your town! They promised to make your interests a priority! They’re screwing you and you love it!!!!

take it up the ass

All things said and done, you have to admit that the town of Coeymans, especially the hamlet of Coeymans, is a garbage dump, and Carver Laraway has been the only one with the cash and the interest in cleaning it up. But that’s not good enough for The Corrupt Crandallites, Yanker Youmansites, Dumbass Dolanites, and Turkey Touchettites. Crandall and his mob, with their sockpuppet Cashin, don’t give a rat’s ass for cleaning up Coeymans; they have their own agendas and they started with firing Carver Laraway supporter Larry Conrad, installing John Cashin, an import from New Baltimore and the corrupt Susan O’Rorke mob who wasted New Baltimore Town Hall before Nick Dellisanti ousted her and her mob. Cashin was O’Rorke’s live-in partner, some say they were married, some say not. Who cares? All you can say with some reliability is that birds of a feather, in this case vultures, flock together.

So now maybe Carver Laraway will pull out the big guns and blow the Crandall Coeymanazis out of the water.

We’ll have more to say about Laverne Conrad’s mischief while code enforcement officer and the damage he did but for now, let’s just concentrate on watching the crooks, conspirators and corruption specialists, Crandall, Youmans, and Dolan, and see what their next stupidity is going to be.

You asked for it, Coeymans, you put the Corrupt Crandallites, the Yanker Youmanites, the Dumbass Dolanites, and the Turkey Touchettites in town hall; they put the New Baltimoron John Cashin where they can use him best against Carver Laraway, just like former town crook Larry Conrad used his position to benefit his cronies.

You may change the faces in Coeymans town hall but nothing else; you’re all still a bunch of pitiful retards and deserve everything Crandall and his mob have in store for you. We told you so but you had to shoot yourselves in the foot. Good for you, Coeymans!

Coeymans Dump

Coeymans eyesore that Carver Laraway demolished and was cleaning up, until Crandall and his mob put a stop to it.

We really want to see what the Johnson Newspaper Group and the Ravena News Herald do with this story. Is it going to be the same old rag rubbish they usually print as the official Ravena-Coeymans information prostitutes, or will they actually do some real reporting and investigate and report the true facts. Don’t hang waiting but do live in hope!

Stay tuned! You know that dentist who runs that ugly banner add every week in the Johnson Newspaper Group rags, especially in the Ravena News Herald? The Coxsackie Dental Arts and Kurt Froehlich? Well, they offer a scam 15% discount for seniors and veterans. Well, here’s the real story: When you charge up to 3-times (that’s 300%) more than the local competition you can well afford to advertise that you offer a 15% discount if that draws the suckers in. But we have information that Coxsackie Dental Arts and Kurt Froehlich are under investigation for alleged insurance fraud for fraudulent billing practices and for professional misconduct. The story is coming up on this blog very soon, so if you plan to have any dental work done, you may want to read our exposé first. Stay tuned!

 

Coeymans: Hopeless, Disgusting, Corrupt! Shame on you!

The final tally of the November 3, 2015, voting in the town of Coeymans, New York, is in, and the results are disturbing, but characteristic of the backwoods, backwater, backward everything town of Coeymans.

Shame on You, Coeymans Voters!
Shame on YOU, especially, Coeymans Scoff-Voters!

Despite intensive coverage. Despite exposing the facts. Despite recent history and widespread reporting of the scandals surrounding the illegal and unethical conduct and cronyism of Tom Dolan (D), Richard Touchette (D), Jim Youmans (D), and worst criminal of them all, disgraced corrupt town of Coeymans judge, Phil Crandall (D), Coeymans voters put them all in public office on November 3, 2015. Coeymans is hopeless, disgusting, corrupt. Coeymans is too stupid to even be ashamed of itself.

About 3 years ago Coeymans voters gave Touchette and Youmans the boot, only to elect that human, political garbage back into public office: Youmans back to the Coeymans town council and Touchette to the Albany county legislature. Tom Dolan, a.k.a. Dithering-Tom Dolan, despite allegations of absentee ballot tampering about 3 years ago, appears to have misused his position as director of the Ravena Choices program, a give-it-all-away benefits program for local ghetto denizens, recently misused his position to misinform the public (with the enthusiastic circus act provided by Jim Youmans) and disclose a confidential draft report from the Office of the New York State Comptroller. Wrongful abuse of his office. Despite the current attention given to bullies of all ages, Coeymans voted known bully Jim Youmans, also allegedly having an arrest record for harassing his neighbors, back into office where he can continue his harassment of town of Coeymans employees and residents, just as he is known to have done when he last deposited his bloated stench in the corridors of Coeymans town hall.

Phil Crandall was forced by the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct for violations of NYS Judicial Law and discrediting the judiciary. In the agreement with the Commission, Crandall had to agree never again to run for judicial office. But that didn’t stop him from running for Coeymans town supervisor! And it didn’t stop the idiots voting in Coeymans from putting the disgraced former town justice, Crandall, who was forbidden from running for judge again, into the supervisor’s office. Now that’s a real deal! Have a corrupt, disgraced judge run the town! Does it get any better, Coeymans? Sure does! Put Tom Dolan, a local loser with a known record of corruption, and Rick Touchette, the other criminal, who got the crooked judge dumped in the first place into office, together with a known used-car salesman bully Jim Youmans. And you wonder why you’re dying, Coeymans?

What’s worse even than Dithering-Tom Dolan’s corrupt practices in the Ravena Choices program and his ballot tampering scandal, is that Dolan, an historical loser, is also chairman of the Coeymans Democrap committee and couldn’t find anything better in the manure pile known as the town of Coeymans to put on the Democrap line. So he had to recycle the available garbage, Crandall, Youmans, Touchette and, of course, Dolan himself. Are the pickings that slim in the town of Coeymans?

Coeymans goes beyond “Shame” !
You’ve really outdone yourselves in stupidity this time!

Coeymans Voters Pumped Raw Sewerage into Town Hall! Dolan, Youmans, Touchette

Coeymans Voters Pump Raw Sewerage into Town Hall!
Dolan, Youmans, Touchette and Crandall
The Editor


Coming up next: How many dead people and non-residents were included in New Baltimore’s absentee ballots? Will an illiterate, town employee’s ballot be counted (it’s signed in the “witness” space but not signed where the “voter” should have signed)? Will a Democrap judge rule in favor of the idiot? The town employee was apparently not absent but will have to prove that she was absent on November 3rd. And Why?, Mr George Acker, did only about half of Independence party voters show up at the polls on November 3rd?
