Tom Meacham Not Even Elected but Already Ethics Violations!!!!

American Politics is the Joke of the Civilized World! Dirty, disrespectful of voters, disinformation gone wild, and absolutely devoid of ethics.

Can we, should we expect anything better from

Tom Meacham, a Republican Candidate for Judicial Office in the Town of New Baltimore but is
Unfit for Judicial Office!

disqualified

Click here to view the campaign flyer we refer to in this article. See for yourself.

We think we can demand more and should get more from our local candidates who regularly, every two or four years, come out of the woodwork like a bunch of greedy ego-driven cockroaches or bedbugs, hungering for our votes, and when they’re full, disappear as quickly as they appeared. But Tom Meacham wants to become a figure who can not only affect your life but who can do some real damage if he’s as ignorant as he seems to be. Meacham wants to be a judge and, even in the corrupt and ignorant town and village justice court system, can do a hell of a lot of damage…and will, once elected, because even now, before coming even close to the polls, he’s showing how ignorant he is.

(Tom Meacham shown in upper right– big roach)

Well, New Baltimore republicans are offering a candidate, Tom Meacham, who is running for New Baltimore Town Justice, and who isn’t even elected to be a judge and he’s already breaking the New York State Judicial Law in his campaign activities!!!

Quite frankly, we are not really interested in the fact that you are married to Kathy or how many kids you have produced. You are asking us to elect you to be a judge in our town. We also don’t really care that you are a Boy Scout leader or that your kids are Eagle Scouts. None of that qualifies you for much of anything; in fact, it’s what we would like to see most parents accomplish, if they have the resources. Actually, your “About Me” in your campaign handouts doesn’t really tell us much about the real you and even less about why you should be trusted to be a judge.

Mr Meacham, your wife and kids do not qualify you for public office, much less for judicial office. You have violated New York State Judicial Law and the provisions of the New York State Code of Judicial Conduct ALREADY! You have disqualified yourself!

What your campaign information and the information in your handouts does tell us is that you are not familiar with the requirements in this state of New York to be a judge. You are not familiar with New York State Judicial Law or with New York State Judicial Ethics. In fact, you should be disqualified from being a judge because you have already violated several provisions of New York State Judicial Law and Judicial ethics, and by your own statements admit that you are biased and will be a prejudiced judge. Obviously, Mr Meacham, your Republican party handlers are just as ignorant of the law and judicial ethics if they allowed you to commit political suicide! Here’s just a couple of reasons that we found published in your very own campaign materials:

Meacham Campaining in New Baltimore Fresh out of the floorboards!

Meacham Campaigning in New Baltimore

Fresh out of the floorboards!

We believe in Separation of Powers. Obviously Mr Meacham does not. Too cozy with Law Enforcement, the executive branch.

First of all, Mr Meacham doesn’t understand that he’s asking to be elected to the judicial branch of government, that is, to be an impartial judge. Judicial impartiality means impartiality to all branches of government, special interests, individuals, politics. But Mr Meacham doesn’t appear to understand that bias implies prejudice, and bias and prejudice are a disqualification for a judgeship. No one wants a judge who is too cozy with law enforcement but Mr Meacham actually touts his endorsement by Greene County Sheriff, Greg Seeley, another Republican, and a politician himself. An endorsement by the Greene County Sheriff indicates to us that Mr Meacham is a bit too cozy with his Republican handlers, and much too close to law enforcement, which might also mean that he will favor law enforcement over the private citizen.

You contradict yourself, Mr Meacham. You can’t cherry pick the law you’ll support, even if your endorsement by Greene County Sheriff Gregory Seeley means you oppose the Safe Act, as Mr Seeley has stated publicly he does not support. It’s the still the law and a judge cannot imply predjudice. But you DO, Mr Meacham, by your own statements in your campaign literature!!!

Mr Meacham also emphasizes that he will uphold the Second Amendment. In fact, this very statement indicates a bias and a prejudice in favor of gun owners and in opposition to the Safe Act, a law of the state of New York, whose laws Mr Meacham will have to swear to interpret and apply in an unbiased and unprejudiced fashion. Out of one side of his mouth Mr Meacham promises to uphold the US Constitution but out of the other side of his double-talking mouth he is apparently saying he’s going to push the Second Amendment or oppose the Safe Act. Which is it Mr Meacham? Are you saying you are going to selectively apply the law? That you will cherry-pick which laws you will apply and which ones you won’t. That’s not a judge that’s a tyrant!

banned

Judicial Law and Judicial Ethics require that a judge be impartial and uninfluenced by other parties in his or her decisions. Mr Meacham wants to “work with law enforcement” in order to make fair and expeditious judicial decisions. We need a judge who can make fair and expeditious judicial decisions without the help of law enforcement!!! Police are tasked with enforcing the law NOT interpreting it for judges. What don’t you understand, Mr Meacham?

Mr Meacham promises to “work with law enforcement to fairly and expeditiously render judicial decisions.” To be effective, the judiciary must work independently, non-partisanly. Why would Mr Meacham have to “work with law enforcement” in order to “fairly and expeditiously render judicial decisions”?!?!? That’s very wrong according to the doctrine of checks and balances. A judge does not have to work with law enforcement nor should he or she work very closely with law enforcement to render fair and expeditious court decisions. That’s not the way things are done in this country, Mr Meacham!!!

Not only are you unfamiliar with Judicial Law and Judicial Ethics, you also have no sense of reality! You are not yet “Judge Meacham” !!! So why are you calling yourself “Judge Meacham” ??? That’s a bit too premature and arrogant for any wannabe judge, in our opinion, Mr Meacham. Can’t you wait for the elections and the ballots to be counted? Besides, aren’t you asking for our vote, not telling us you’ve already been elected? Didn’t you read your campaign propaganda? Can you read?

FASO - MEACHAM - AMADORE Birds of a Feather Are Faso, Amadore tainted by Meacham?

FASO – MEACHAM – AMADORE
Birds of a Feather
Are Faso, Amadore tainted by Meacham?

But the worst violation that appears in Mr Meacham’s election campaign material is the fact that he has not yet been elected to be a town justice yet in his campaign materials already calls himself a judge. He obviously can’t wait for the elections to call himself “judge Meacham.” Just look at the email address that appears on his campaign materials: JUDGEMEACH16@GMAIL.COM. That email is misleading and fraudulent. Meacham is NOT Judge Meacham and, if we have anything to say about it, Tom Meacham will not be a New Baltimore Justice for all of the violations of law and ethics that he has already committed and he’s not even in office!

Not Judge Meacham YET! And unlikely he will be.

Tom Meacham
Not “Judge” Meacham YET!
And unlikely he will be.

Mr Meacham, you need to publically apologize to the people of the Town of New Baltimore for your scurilous attempt to misinform them, and you need to do that at least in the News Herald and the Greene County News. Here’s the email for the editor of those publications; you can send your apology to Melanie Lekocevic of Columbia-Greene County Media. You need to do that NOW!

Editor’s Note: Given the extraordinary number of violations of Judicial Law and Judicial Ethics that we have found in this single campaign flyer, we intend to file a formal complaint and demand for investigation with the Commission on Judicial Conduct (CJC) of the New York State Unified Court System. The CJC is supposed to be the state watchdog keeping tabs on judges’ conduct in the New York State court system and has the authority to punish judges and judge candidates for violations of the NY Judicial Law and the Code of Judicial Conduct. (But readers be aware that the Commission is appointed by the Governor so don’t expect much. They’re just as hypocritical as the corrupt judges they’re supposed to discipline! Any surprise?). Mr Meacham has violated several of the provisions of the Law and Code in just this small handout. We can’t even start to imagine what other misconduct and violations he is capable of. We will file the Complaint with the CJC and we’ll keep our readers informed of its progress.

We have to demand that our public officials, especially our judges, even the bottom feeder town and village judicial parasites, are held to a higher standard than the general population. We’ve had enough of the hypocrites putting on the black robes of justice and claiming the high moral road, doing what they please, and judging the rest of us. What’s even worse is the fact that the back-room dealers, the political committees, pick their insiders and pass them off to us as worthy candidates. These political party committees, regardless of whether they call themselves Independence, Democrap, or Repuklican, are sleazebags. It’s time the community woke up and puts these insiders and carpetbaggers in their proper place and it’s not public office. We hope you agree.

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!

Return of the Scumbuckets! Coeymans Does It Again!

Coeymans Voters Showed that They Are Either Brain Dead or Slobbering Suckers

outraged not paying attentionBut How Can So Many People Be Crying About the Election Results if They Didn’t Vote for the Crooks? Something isn’t right in Coeymans!

The trash bags are back! Dithering Tom Dolan, a farce of a boardmember, caused a stir a couple of years ago when he was the subject of a scandal revolving around his tampering with absentee ballots from individuals receiving benefits from his Choices program in Ravena. Tom Dolan has been the subject of several scandals since then. Most recently he leaked a confidential Comptroller’s draft that his crony scoundrel Jim Youmans played to the hilt.

How quickly the residents and voters of the town of Coeymans forget that both Jim Youmans and Rick Touchette had been in public office but were dumped by Coeymans voters just about 2 years ago. They weren’t worth re-election then so what’s changed since? Only that they were involved in more scandals and unlawful conduct; is that what gets a democrap elected in Coeymans?

Well, the only thing that has changed is that they added another scandal to their list: Dolan, Touchette and Phil Crandall were all involved in the ticket fixing scam that forced Phil Crandall to resign from elected office in disgrace, never again to run for judicial office. All of them, Dolan, Touchette and Crandall were tight together and involved in getting and giving illegal favors that forced Crandall to resign from the judgeship! But you voted Tom Dolan and Rick Touchette back into office.  Even worse still, you put bully Jim Youmans back where you didn’t want him a couple of years ago! How can you do that, Coeymans?

Didn’t you read our factsheets on the candidates? Read them now and weep, stupids! Click here: What You Need to Know Before Voting on November 3rd.

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

On November 3rd Coeymans Voters Pumped Raw Sewerage into Town Hall!
Dolan, Youmans, Touchette

So what do Coeymans voters, morons that they are, do? They re-elect scoundrels to represent them and to govern the town of Coeymans. So what’s the plan here, people? You’re bitching that the town is going to the dogs. You make some progress in forcing two dirty cops, Dirty Hands Jerry Deluca and his dumpling Gregory Darlington into retirement. The police department is shining now, a real part of the community, saving money and working with the community. The town of Coeymans is in the black with the 2015 budget! And so you bunch of dullwits go and put a damper on it all by re-electing a dithering idiot loser, Tom Dolan, and then electing two known crooks and scoundrels, Rich Touchette and Jim Youmans. That’s just what the doctor ordered to fix Coeymans, people, a great police chief and an honest police department with crooks and bullies on the town board! Congratulations, you’re all now charter members of the DUMBASS CLUB.

How is it possible that Coeymans voters could put that crook Touchette in the Albany county legislature. He’s listed as one of the plaintiffs in a case that is trying to kill economic development in Coeymans; do you really think he’s going to do better in Albany? If he’s so great, why didn’t you re-elect him to the town board in 2013? Short memories or brain dead voters kill communities. You’re well on your way, Coeymans.

Apart from demonstrating that you’re all a bunch of terminal retards and dumb as a rock, the only other alternative is this: You’ve been had, Coeymans! Tom Dolan and his welfare parasites, the ghetto on the hill, sold their votes for benefits. That’s the only other way to explain this situation. It’s the only way a halfway sane community could possibly justify such dumbass election results: The Coeymans dumbocrap party used every dishonest and villainous trick in the book to get the votes they needed to keep Coeymans in the democrap strangle-hold and part of the democrat political machine run by the Albany democrat mafia. And that’s exactly what Tom Dolan and his democrap thugs did, in fact!

Dolan and Youmans show Coeymans voters what they have to offer.

Dolan and Youmans show Coeymans voters what they have to offer.

Coeymans, you really have to call for an investigation of this election. It couldn’t have been more crooked. No sane community could possibly have elected such a bunch of crooks, bullies and scoundrels without some unlawful help from the party leadership. This is outrageous and beyond suspicious!

COEYMANS VOTERS NEED TO DEMAND A RECALL, A REVOTE! SAVE YOURSELF COEYMANS!

Those of you who read this blog had all the information you needed handed to you! All of it from court records, the media, from reliable sources. We even provided you with links to that important information so you could send it to your friends and neighbors. SHAME ON YOU ALL!!! YOU DESERVE EVERYTHING YOU GET FROM YOUR CROOKS AND BULLIES YOU ELECTED, AND THEN SOME. WE’LL BE WATCHING AND HAVING A GREAT LAUGH AT YOUR IMBECILIC CHOICES.

NOW, YOU CAN EITHER SIMMER IN YOUR OWN PUTRID JUICES OR YOU CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. THE ALTERNATIVE IS TO LET BULLY YOUMANS, CROOKS DOLAN AND THEIR CONIES PLAY YOU ALL FOR THE FOOLS YOU PROVED YOURSELVES TO BE.

AND NEW BALTIMORE HAD BETTER KEEP VERY CLOSE TABS ON THEIR ELECTION RESULTS. REPUBLICANS SEEM TO THINK THAT PLAYING BY THE RULES WILL GET THEM SOMEWHERE; HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE THEM TO REALIZE THAT THE DEMOCRAPS DON’T HAVE ANY RULES. TIME TO GET THE ATTORNEYS INVOLVED.

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.

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!

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

We all know about licensed professionals whether hairdressers, electricians, builders, funeral directors, doctors or dentists. Licensing means only that they have completed the required training as defined by the New York State Department of Education — and that they paid the state fee. Licensing does not qualify them as having the people skills necessary to do their job nor does it ensure that they have any ethics. The cardinal rule of ethics is this: “No one shall use another person as the means to an end.” Yet many of our licensed professionals do just that: They look at you as a cash cow and the means to their enrichment.

You just stand there like a dumb Moo, and let them milk you dry.

You just stand there like a dumb Moo, and let them milk you dry. Yes, you do look stupid.

In fact, when you sit down and think about it, dentists are the only practitioners who willfully mutilate the patient and then charge the patient to fix the mutilation — they’re a lot like Greene county contractors or the New Baltimore highways department or the Ravena public works department. WTF! Think about that for a minute…

Marvin Gerstenberg of New Baltimore Family Dentistry and Kurt Froehlich of Coxsackie Dental Arts: Two Peas

Marvin Gertzberg of New Baltimore Family Dentistry and Kurt Froehlich of Coxsackie Dental Arts: Two Peas

As soon as you complain, some dentists (like Kurt Froehlich of Coxsackie Dental Arts) will insist that you made a contract. Now, any contract is a meeting of the minds. But both parties have to agree on terms that are clear and unambiguous, and both parties have the right to ask for the terms to be put into writing just to be sure the terms are clear and unambiguous, and that the one party knows what is expected of him and the other party makes it clear what it expects. Once that is done we can assume that there is mutual informed consent by both parties to enter into a contract that is binding on each and enforceable by both parties. Note the key terms here: “meeting of the minds,” “clear and unambiguous,” “Informed consent.”

Note the key terms here: “meeting of the minds,” “clear and unambiguous,” “Informed consent.”

What this means is that once you have all the information you need and that information is clear and not double-talk, you have the option of entering into the contract or not. No “contract” can be forced upon you; if they do a procedure on you without your informed consent it can be criminal battery, maybe even assault! And incomplete information is worth as much as no information; you shouldn’t be left standing there to fill in the blanks.


Funeral directors are required by law to have a price list….Why shouldn’t dentists and physicians be held to the same or similar standard?

Editor’s Note: You need to be reminded that this is business, not a love fest. Your dentist is smiling at you because he’s making a lot of money but he’s smiling only as long as you play his game by his rules. Rock the boat and you’re in for a rude — and we do mean rude — awakening. That’s why we recommend you always insist on a treatment plan, in writing, plus an itemized estimate of the costs, and check with your insurance company to find out what they reimburse and whether you’re going to get stuck with having to pay a chunky balance. If your dentist tells you he wants payment up front and that you have to deal with the insurance company, RUN! If your dentist refuses to provide you with a written treatment plan or refuses to explain what his plan is or doesn’t come back to assure you understand what’s going to be done and that you understand everything, RUN! Always take notes or jot down notes about the experience as soon as possible after your visit. You may wish you had when the cat hits the fan. Where do you run, you ask? To your computer or to pen and paper and write a complaint giving the dentist’s name, his practice, dates and the facts of the incident. Send the complaint to us and we’ll forward it to the authorities. Or you can send us a copy and contact the Department of Health and the Department of Education, Licensing Division on your own. If you feel there’s a crime involved, like fraud, contact the office of the district attorney for the county you live in. Funeral directors are required by law to have a price list and to provide that price list to clients; in addition, some states even require funeral directors to provide side-by-side comparisons of burial vs. cremation costs! Why shouldn’t dentists and physicians be held to the same or similar standard?


As we mentioned, we’re going to diverge a little this time and give our crooked and incompetent public employees and local elected officials a breather — that’ll give them an opportunity to do something really stupid we can write about—, and look at some local delinquents who have somehow slipped under the radar: local dentists. Now, we’re not singling out dentists because all the other health-related providers are such angels; we’ll get to them in due course. It’s just that we have some information of significant interest on two local dental vampires that might be vital for residents in the Greene County communities of New Baltimore and Coxsackie to know, and in which the Greene County District Attorney might be interested.

Gertzberg & Froehlich beefed up their practices in a previously underserved community to cash in and take off!

The two dental practices we are focusing on are New Baltimore Family Dentistry (Marvin Gertzberg**) and Coxsackie Dental Arts (Kurt Froehlich), both run by two ready-for-retirement dentists who apparently beefed up their practices in a previously underserved community to cash in and take off. Gertzberg recently sold the New Baltimore Family Dentistry practice and is soon to retire; Froehlich is likely to do the same once he bleeds his patients and the community dry. Read on…

So what they’re doing in the good ole US of A, is what they do so well: misinform and practice deception.

Dentists like to be called “Dr” but in reality, they are not real doctors because their degree, although it reads “doctor of dental medicine” or “doctor of dental science”, isn’t really an academic doctorate. Same applies to most medical “doctors” in the United States. An academic degree, especially a “doctorate”, is awarded after the candidate earns a master’s degree, applies to and is admitted to a doctoral program, does appropriate original research, under the supervision of an adviser writes a dissertation and defends that research and the dissertation; and then is awarded an academic doctorate, usually a PhD. Medical doctors and dentists in the USA finish a 4-year undergrad degree that does not necessarily have to be science related (some are in music or English or some subject unrelated to medicine) but they do have to do pre-med or pre-dental courses. After being admitted to an accredited medical or dental program, they then do 2 years of basic science coursework (anatomy, pharmacology, pathology, biochemistry, microbiology, etc.) and if they do well, they then do 2 years of electives and clinical work. They have to pass a series of board examinations. Having done that, they graduate and go on to spend time on-the-job as interns, residents, and fellows, etc. During all of that, like any professional, they are expected to take continuing education courses, keep up-to-date in their specialties, and develop their skills just as any hairdresser, embalmer, or electrician would be expected to do. So what the for-profit corporate education system is doing in the good ole US of A, is what they do so well: misinform and practice deception.

[Editor’s note: In most developed countries, what the doctors and dentists we call “doctor” are not called doctor at all but Mr and referred to as physicians or dentists but unless they have completed the academic research and dissertation requirements leading to the award of a “real” academic doctoral degree, they are not called “doctor.”]

Let’s face it, most people who go to the doctor or to the dentist hardly open their mouths to describe what’s ailing them,and even fewer ask the right questions, and even fewer question the doctor or dentist. Most people go in and the doctor or dentist does most of the talking and less of the listening and the patient sits patiently waiting to be told what’s wrong and what’s going to be done. Did the doctor or dentist even listen to what’s wrong or discuss what’s going to be done. Hardly. In fact, all the while you are trying to inform the provider, they’re already deciding what they’re going to do. We’ve written a piece on “listening” that will be published on another blog. We’ll post the link once it’s up; you may want to read it.

** It appears that New Baltimore Family Dentistry has changed hands and M. Gertzberg doesn’t even appear in the staff directory. But that’s not our problem. Gertzberg may have left the practice but the organizational culture he created and left behind is still is alive and well — until proved otherwise.

Dentists must commit time to listen without interruption

Because we’re focusing on two local dental practices, let’s have a quick look at what Dr Stanley Weiss DDS, a dentist and psychotherapist has to say about dentists’ listening skills in Dental Economics, a professional journal for the dental profession (online at: Dental Economics):

“As a dentist and psycho-therapist, I’ve found listening is overlooked in dentistry…Dentists must commit time to listen without interruption to what patients and staff members communicate. In addition, you must devote energy to concentrate on blocking everything else to absorb what patients convey…To know patients, we must listen to them. With new patients, rely on experience to elicit dental and medical information, show how well you listen, and project personality and attributes such as your caring, humanity, and sense of humor…An inability to listen will be judged harshly. Your patients might interpret it as your not caring, disinterest, lack of empathy, or even incompetence.…Many dentists think the way to impress patients is to talk, talk, talk about their thoughts, feelings, and opinions. This may work infrequently. Instead, listen, ask questions based upon what the patient has said, and be attentive to the patient and what he or she says…What you invest in listening will be returned to you economically in patient retention and referrals. To most of your patients, your listening is more important than your mechanical skill.

Dentist: “… putting metal into your mouth, pulls coins out of your pocket.”

Listen to new dental patients

That’s coming from a dentist! Here’s something else published by a dentist who had to publish it under a fake name because he was talking about his colleagues in the dental business. In his book, “Dentistry and Its Victims: The Self-Defense Handbook You Need to Protect Your Teeth and Your Pocketbook“, dentist Dr Paul Revere (not his real name): This little gem of a book exposes the dental profession and makes clear recommendations to patients. The title page of this includes a quote from Bierce’s The Devil’s Dictionary: “Dentist, n., A prestidigitator who, putting metal into your mouth, pulls coins out of your pocket.” It is written by a pseudonymous dentist who knows the “inside” story and who is warns the laity about poor dentistry. He does more: he provides the reader with some sensible information about self-help and good routine care. I include this book on this list because of the criticism of dentistry and because the author explains some of the risks to the dentist of providing good dental care. There is a paradox here: the dentist who does the best possible job may, in fact, alienate his patients. The good dentist may, for example, save a tooth – at great personal cost to the patient – when the patient really just wants the thing out. The author also suggests this important point: “…organized dentistry will not publish, and actually suppresses, all studies on the quality of dentistry as it is practiced.” (p. 11) This is, of course, in order to maintain the position that dentistry already has. The author similarly makes the point that dentists’ ethics — What ethics? you might very well ask — prohibit, or at least restrain, one dentist from criticizing another. The same sort of code of silence exists for dentists as exists for physicians and scientists.(Ask your community librarian to get the book for you. Here are the details for requesting it: Publisher: St. Martin’s Press; Revised edition (1980), ISBN-10: 0312193912, ISBN-13: 978-0312193911).

Back to our focus: New Baltimore Family Dentistry and Coxsackie Dental Arts (CDA). These two dental practices might easily have been the reason for both Dr Weiss’ and for Dr Revere’s scathing assessments of the shortcomings and worse that we have to deal with in the dental office. What’s even worse is the highway robbery and deception that is going on literally right under our noses.

 Dentists are the only practitioners who willfully mutilate the patient and then charge the patient to fix the mutilation

The pitiful part of all of this is how much people will accept for the sake of convenience and because they don’t have the guts to open their mouths. Rather than be confrontational those without dental insurance would rather not go to the dentist; after all this is a toothless society we live in, isn’t it. Or did I mean “ball-less.” And those with dental insurance don’t give a damn because, What the hell! they’re not paying the bill. But now local dentists have a new scam that they call their new “business model.” That model is this: You pay their price up front for what they do and they’ll submit the paperwork to your insurance company, who will then reimburse you for the amount they would reimburse the dentist. Well, that might sound real nice until you see the light: This new “business model” is win-win for the dentist and bullshit for you. Here’s why: The reason the dentist is doing it this way is because he doesn’t feel the insurance company is paying enough. So he milks you for his inflated price for the service and you get what the insurance company would normally pay him. Nice scam, right. But here’s what else they try to get away with: The dental office doesn’t even want to submit the paperwork to the insurance company, instead, the dental office wants to hand you the paperwork and have you do their work. This is the “business model” Coxsackie Dental Arts and dentist Kurt Froehlich is using to milk some, if not all of his patients. Example, Coxsackie Dental Arts (Kurt Froehlich) charges $1200 for a single-tooth permanent tooth replacement (on the existing tooth base). You pay Froehlich $1200 and the insurance company will pay you about $375 – 400.00 or what the insurance industry has determined to be fair and reasonable for that service. So if $375 or $400 is considered fair and reasonable and would be what any dentist would accept if he isn’t using Froehlich’s so-called business model, then the $375 or $400 would be adequate to cover the dentist’s expenses and still leave room for making some bucks. Why is Froehlich so unique and special that he needs to charge three-times what is fair and reasonable?!? Maybe Coxsackie Dental Arts or Mr Froehlich can explain why his practice is three times better than a fair and reasonable practice.

But we don’t think he can because we have information that shows what a scam he’s running at Coxsackie Dental Arts (CDA). A local resident went to CDA to get an infection seen to and to have two temporaries repaired. He first tried to get an appointment with CDA using their website “Request and Appointment” form. In about a week’s time and 4 attempts later, he still had no response from CDA, and called to make an appointment. (The resident says he tried two other practices: Michael Conte in Glenmont and even New Baltimore Family Dentistry using their online forms and got responses within a couple of hours). The resident explained to the CDA receptionist what he needed and that it needed to be done a.s.a.p. because he would be out of town the next week and didn’t want to mess with the infection and the broken temps. He got an appointment two days later but was told he had to pay $55 for a consultation. Why $55 for a new patient. We don’t get it. You should be happy to get a new patient and you don’t need to charge for a consultation when you’re discussing what the patient needs. But CDA and Kurt Froehlich do!

So, the patient is in the chair, the tech takes x-rays specifically of the infected area and of the temps needing repair. The patient attempts to explain to Froehlich what happened and Froehlich tells him he doesn’t need details. The patient offers to show Froehlich his previous x-rays only a year old. Froehlich says they’re too old, he needs to take his own. The patient tells Froehlich his former dentist has the permanent bridge for the teeth. Froehlich says he uses his own work and doesn’t know what the other dentist’s work is like. But … Froehlich doesn’t need details and doesn’t even say, “Well, let’s get the perms and have a look. Maybe we can use them.” Now Why? would he do that when he thinks he can charge 3 times more? That’s a slick trick!

Froehlich tells the patient that the root of the infected tooth is being absorbed by the body and has to come out. That would mean that the bridge (two teeth) would have to be replaced. (Had Froehlich done what any decent dentist would have done and looked at the previous x-rays, he would have had a basis for comparison, but he wasn’t interested in “details.”). When someone tells you he “Doesn’t need details,” he’s not listening and he’s not interested in you or what you have to say.

What Kurt Froehlich sees when he sees you in the chair!

What Kurt Froehlich sees when he sees you in the chair!

Froehlich then preps the teeth with the broken temps and his tech makes a temporary set. Froehlich says that to finish the work he would need $1200 downpayment, that a post-dated check would do, because it was a Thursday afternoon, and CDA is closed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and the patient was to be out of town all the following week. The patient doesn’t like the idea of doing post-dated checks and so pays Froehlich with a credit card. Froehlich then disappears (the patient, still in the chair, sees him leaving and sees him driving away). Froehlich leaves and the tech finishes up. Froehlich never reappears to check the work or to ensure that the patient had a clear idea of the treatment plan, which the patient repeatedly told Froehlich he wanted. We find that Froehlich was way out of line leaving the premises while a patient was still in the chair, not checking the work done by his tech, and not ensuring after all was done that the patient understood what the plan was. This was a new, first-time patient and that’s the treatment he got at Coxsackie Dental Arts. Nice impression, Froehlich! Froehlich was really froehlich (German for happy) once he got his money.

In the meantime, we have received documents that show that Coxsackie Dental Arts, Kurt Froehlich, submitted a claim to the patient’s insurance company for $2455.00 on the day of the patients initial visit! Froehlich is billing at least 3 weeks before the anticipated work was to be done (the patient was scheduled to return on August 3, 2015)!!! Now if the same rule applies to Coxsackie Dental Arts and to Kurt Froehlich that applied to New Baltimore Family Dentistry and to Marvin Gertzberg, that is, that a claim can’t be filed or paid until the work is completed, then Coxsackie Dental Arts is demanding payment for work not done, and is fraudulently claiming payment in the amount of $2422.00 ($2400 for the two crowns not even made on July 16, much less installed + $22.00 overpayment for the double-billing of the consultation)!!! Coxsackie Dental Arts and Kurt Froehlich have been found out; they’re robbing their patients blind with inflated prices for dental services, double-billing, and fraudulently claiming payment for work not done!

All of this raises the question of whether this is as widespread as it seems, and why no one has picked up on it until now. Where have you all been while Gertzberg and Froehlich are skipping happily to the bank? Here we have two dental practices in a backwater area who are cashing in like bandits and nobody seems to notice. Patients don’t, insurance company doesn’t, district attorneys don’t seem to care, but we do! Game’s over, dudes. We’re calling for in-depth audits of your practices and investigations by the insurance companies and district attorneys! We’re calling on your patients to demand transparency and accountability. New Baltimore Family Dentistry and Coxsackie Dental Arts have no right to steal form us directly, indirectly, or otherwise!

On the way to Boston, on the following Sunday evening, the temporary bridge falls out and the patient is left with two exposed stumps and a temporary in his hand! Exactly what he expressly intended to avoid when he went to Froehlich’s practice. He tries the next day to reach Froehlich’s office but gets a voice recording, leaves a message, and later in the day, while in meetings, gets a callback and a voicemail message telling him to get some FixaDent and put the temporary teeth back in.

The patient is suspicious by this time that he doesn’t know what exactly Froehlich is planning but that impressions were made on that Thursday but for what? There was not treatment plan and the patient didn’t know what Froehlich’s plan was; Froehlich didn’t hang around long enough to tell the patient.

That same day, the patient sends Froehlich an e-mail telling him to stop all work, to issue a refund of the $1200, to tell the patient what the treatment plan was, and why Froehlich took the impressions. The patient made it a point to assure Froehlich that he would pay for any work done to that point that was in accord with his, the patient’s, explicit requests: to check the infection and to repair the temporaries.

Froehlich wrote back refusing to honor the patient’s requests. The issues are now in dispute and the patient has contacted his insurance company to find out whether Froehlich put in any paperwork. The insurance company informed the patient that
Froehlich’s claim was processed on July 31, 2015, and the two unit bridge was denied because it was within the 5-year limit for replacement; Froehlich, although he charged the patient $55 for a consultation and was paid in cash, Froehlich still filed a claim with the insurer for the consultation and was paid for it. In other words, Froehlich double billed for the consultation, apparently wanting to get paid twice! It seems Froehlich, according to the insurance company, double-dipped and now owes the patient $22.00, since the insurance company paid $22 of the $55 Froehlich billed them for, even though the patient paid cash for the consultation.

But what’s ironic in this entire story is the fact that the dentist that made the claim to the patient’s insurance company for the two-tooth bridge in January 2014, was none other than Marvin Gertzberg of New Baltimore Family Dentistry, and it seems that there’s remarkable similarity between the two practices.

The patient made an appointment with Gertzberg at New Baltimore Family Dentistry for the same appearance of an infection in the same tooth that sent the patient to CDA. Gertzberg showed little interest in the infection and was looking for bigger fish to fry, it seems. Although the patient did not have a problem with a bridge, Gertzberg reported the bridge to be “loose”, he up-sold the patient into having the bridge replaced. Once the patient agreed to have the bridge replaced, Gertzberg found that one of the anchor teeth was “decayed” and he felt he could not assure results if he built the “decayed” tooth up, and persuaded the patient to allow him to extract it. Once the anchor tooth was extracted, it meant that in order to restore the bridge, an implant had to be installed. But the implant would cost an additional $2500. Wouldn’t it have been more sensible not to have extracted, to have done the best possible restoration and proceeded from there? Not according to dentistry in New Baltimore! Not when you can charge for a bridge, an extraction and an implant. That’s big money. But it all started when Gertzberg was asked to take care of an infection on the other side of the mouth! How did it come to his finding a “loose bridge”, a bridge the patient had no problem with? We have to look deeper for the answers.

You see, at the time, Gertzberg was planning to sell his interest in the New Baltimore Family Dentistry practice, so he had to glamorize his financials and his practice; he had to make the numbers look real good and attractive to a potential buyer. He did eventually sell the practice about a year ago but it was all Hush! Hush! Don’t you think that New Baltimore Family Dentistry patients had a right to know that the practice was being sold. We do! We asked New Baltimore Family Dentistry directly, twice about the sale and they refused to answer the question. Why would it be such a secret? And now we’re informed that Marvin Gertzberg plans to retire shortly. Apparently he’s used us to his satisfaction.

Well, an inquiry with the patient’s insurer told us something more about New Baltimore Family Dentistry and Marvin Gertzberg: The patient was very dissatisfied with the sales pitches and the shoddy way Gertzberg prepped the area where he expected to restore the bridge. The patient, having extensive knowledge in the field of dentistry, periodontics, and medical science, after having examined the tooth once extracted, found the tooth to be healthy. Moreover, it appeared that the “decay” was nothing less than the degradation of the cement holding the bridge in place. Another problem with Gertzberg’s poorly crafted treatment plan: Gertzberg removed a bridge that was not causing a problem. Gertzberg removed a bridge that was spanning the space of four teeth. Gertzberg extracted a visibly healthy tooth saying it was beyond restoration. Gertzberg intended to sell an implant, and Gertzberg only provided for a bridge to cover 2 teeth. What was the plan for the rest of the gap. Patient was never told. Only Gertzberg knows. But it gets better.

A bit of fraud going on here at New Baltimore Family Dentistry

fraudWhen investigating Kurt Froehlich’s shennanigans at Coxsackie Dental Arts, the inquiry with the insurer informed the investigator that Froehlich’s claim to the insurance company for $2400 for 2 crowns was denied because a claim for the same two crowns was made in January 2014, within the limit period of 5 years. That claim was submitted by Guess who? Marvin Gerstenberg of New Baltimore Family Dentistry. According to the insurer, Gertzberg submitted a claim for dental work. for two crowns, and was paid $775 by the insurer. Gerstenberg was paid an additional $165 for the extraction. That’s a total of $840.00 (compare this to Kurt Froehlich’s $2400 for the same thing—except for the extraction—, literally!). But according to the insurance company, Gertzberg could submit the claim only if the work had been completed. It was not. When the insurance company was told that the patient left the practice because of dissatisfaction and that the bridge was never put in his mouth, the insurer stated that Gertzberg could be paid only if the work was completed, that is, that Gertzberg installed the permanent bridge in the patient’s mouth, completing the work. Even if Gertzberg had the permanent bridge made up, he could not be paid until the patient had the work completed and the bridge in his mouth. Seems that there’s a bit of fraud going on here at New Baltimore Family Dentistry; wouldn’t you think Gertzberg would know he can’t submit for reimbursement until there’s something to be reimbursed, like completed work. The insurance company is now investigating and intends to get the money back. We say Gertzberg should be disciplined.

There is still the question of why Gertzberg would remove a bridge over four (4) teeth and proceed to replace a bridge for only two? That simply doesn’t make sense. What you take out, Marve, you put back! Apparently, Gertzberg didn’t inform the patient of this craziness and the patient found out only when he contacted the insurance company!

Now think for a moment: What right does Kurt Froehlich and Coxsackie Family Dentistry have to do what he’s doing in this community and still profit by his unethical practices, and his scam of a “business model.” Can this community afford his ego? How many local residents have fallen victim to his over-inflated, ego-driven prices and walked away abused by this prestidigitator, in Bierce’s own diabolical words, “who, putting metal into your mouth, pulls coins out of your pocket.”

And how many times in the past has Marvin Gertzberg and New Baltimore Family Dentistry pulled this sort of trick and gotten away with it? Gertzberg puts a new slant on Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary: Gertzberg’s dentistry “puts nothing in your mouth while pulling coins out of your pocket.” As a matter of fact, Gertzberg takes more out of your mouth than he plans to put in! Bizarre way to do dentistry, isn’t it?

There’s more to these two stories and probably much more in addition to these two stories. All we can do is inform the public and let the public see that justice is done. The pitiful part of all of this is that Gertzberg and Froehlich are old and at the brink of retirement and cashing in on their practices, as unethical and crooked as they may have been; they should still be held accountable, however, and an investigation should be launched to audit both their practices not only by insurers but also by the Greene County District Attorney and the Department of Health, among others.

A dissatisfied customer tells about 28 people.

There is still some hope that public opinion will take its toll on practices like New Baltimore Family Dentistry and Coxsackie Dental Arts. In the September 2015 issue of Consumer Reports, page 7, there’s a statistic called “Viral Vitriol” that reads: “A customer who’s eventually satisfied tells 10 to 16 people, on average, about the experience, according to Arizona State’s 2013 “customer rage” study. A dissatisfied customer tells about 28 people.” This blog is doing far better than that. Now Mr Gertzberg, Mr Froehlich was it all worth it?

Well, everything will come out in the dirty laundry if this goes to court. The patient will subpoena everything to show what a slick money-grabber these guys are. Coxsackie Dental Arts and Mr Froehlich have a real uphill battle on a very slippery slope if you ask us. Froehlich is going to have one hell of a time explaining to patients and to a judge how he justifies his sleezy practices.

How Morally Depraved Can Cathy Deluca, Misuraca’s Village Board, Be?

deadhorseWill Misuraca and his Mooselets on the Ravena village council ever wake up? At the November 18, 2014, public meeting that had all of six people attending (at least 3 of them village employees) here’s what you would have heard: No one seems to have gotten a monthly report from Cathy Deluca on the Fitness Center. Misuraca, Warner looking stupid and having to admit no one got a report (while village council member Joel Coye sits chewing and picking his nose on camera! What’s he chewing? Yuck!). But Nancy Warner announced that the Fitness Center is planning to send out brochures to attempt to get members! IDIOTS! It’s almost two years and the Ravena Health and Fitness Center is still FAILING! Wake up! Smell the coffee (or the bullshit, which is getting pretty strong)! But you’re still beating the dead horse! How long is Misuraca and his crew going to let this thing go on? Late November, just before the Winter holidays is no time to be sending out brochures for a fitness club! Go figure! They put the “R” in RETARDS!


Several weeks have passed since the Ravena News Herald printed their article on the fact that Cathy Deluca’s playpen, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, has been hemorrhaging more than $6,000 a month of Ravena taxpayers’, property-owners’ dollars. But that’s where it all stopped, it seems. Our question is:

How Morally Depraved is Cathy Deluca and Ravena Mayor William Misuraca’s Village Board?

MORAL DEPRAVITY HAS A HOME IN RAVENA

MORAL DEPRAVITY HAS A HOME IN RAVENA
And it sits on the Ravena village council and runs the Ravena Health and Fitness Center

This blog has been exposing the corruption and criminality surrounding the creation of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and the corrupt and criminal way that the Bruno-Warner village board lied their way into creating a non-competitive civil service position for Cathy Deluca. The fact that Bruno and Warner did everything they could to ensure that their appointee, Deluca, got the position and no one else even had a chance at it was no big deal to expose. We did it right here and we embarrassed the Albany Department of Civil Service and Albany County into giving the director of the Albany Department the boot. But Ravena has no pride and no morals so Cathy Deluca got the position, got the exempt non-competitive classification, she even “Interneted” her credentials (unqualified but receiving her salary at YOUR expense), still bamboozling the Civil Service morons into allowing her to keep the position. If you or I tried even half of that sort of criminal lying and fraudulent misrepresentation, we’d be in Albany County jail — or worse — but Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and Gregory Darlington go Scott free and can collect fat pensions at our expense while Cathy Deluca pockets more than $30,000 a year in salary plus full benefits to waste $6,000 a month of Ravena taxpayers’ dollars! Doesn’t anyone see what’s wrong with this picture?!?

Cathy Deluca even lied her way out of criminal proceedings when here husband, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, then still with the Coeymans police department, bullied Coeymans police officer Jason Albert, with the blessing of then police chief Gregory “Dumplington” Darlington, into burying the investigation of Cathy Deluca’s misdemeanor lying to a police officer, when she tried to fraudulently incriminate a local resident! That was a misdemeanor on Cathy Deluca’s part, and obstruction of justice by Darlington and his sockpuppet Jason Albert but Darlington got to “retire” (in lieu of prosecution? Will Darlington’s wife, Leah Darlington, a secretary in race-card-player Albany County DA David Soares‘ office type out the warrant?) and Albert got an “attaboy” promotion to detective! So much for respect for the laws of this state and nation: The biggest criminals are the law enforcement officers and their spouses! But with a new police chief and pressure from the community, not to mention literally dozens of unresolved complaints and pending lawsuits against the Coeymans p.d. and individual officers, justice may still be served. Let’s see what happens in the coming weeks, months.


Our stats show that Leah Darlington or someone in the Albany County District Attorney’s office is spending taxpayer dollars wisely: between November 16 and November 19, that person visited this blog 68 times, spending several hours total here! Thank you! Albany County DA P. David Soares, for hiring a Darlington to misuse taxpayer money!


But even if you don’t take the time to search this blog and re-read the many articles we’ve written for you exposing the Delucas, the Warners, the Darlingtons, the Coeymans police department’s obstruction of justice and other civil violations and criminal acts and negligence, you can’t overlook the fact that at least SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS are being wasted every month, and neither Cathy Deluca nor the Ravena Village Board have the decency to put a stop to it.

Who can deny the glaring facts that:

Mayor "Moose" Misuraca thought he was getting this...

Mayor “Moose” Misuraca thought he was getting this...

  • Cathy Deluca to Nancy Warner: Do this! The Moose loves it!

    BUT he got this, instead!
    (Cathy Deluca to Nancy Warner: Do this! The “Moose” loves it!)

    Cathy Deluca was personally selected by former mayor John Bruno and his sidekick Nancy Warner to have the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. Hasn’t anyone asked what favors were being repaid by Bruno and Warner? Why no one else, maybe someone qualified, was given the opportunity to apply — even if it would be hopeless?

  • Why did former mayor John Bruno and village trustee Nancy Warner conspire to not only hand Cathy Deluca the position as manager of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, but went to extraordinary trouble to fabricate an application made to the Albany County Civil Service Department — the application was incomplete, inaccurate, fraudulent — to get her a non-competitive classification, exempt from any examination, full benefits, etc.
  • Cathy Deluca knew then and still knows that she’s killed two private health and fitness clubs before she was handed the Ravena Health and Fitness Center but she still took the opportunity to prove she could kill yet another one. Don’t any of you think that that is morally depraved? Criminal on Deluca’s part, to knowingly take a position she knew she couldn’t handle and now, after two years of screwing around, is proving she can kill yet another business, this time one belonging to the public.
  • Don’t you think it’s morally depraved of Ravena Mayor William “Moose” Misuraca, and his Ravena village council, to allow this to go on without finally putting a stop to it? They even admitted publicly that if a business were losing that kind of money that any sensible and responsible manager would shut it down. Why hasn’t Mayor William Misuraca and his village council morons locked the doors on the Ravena Health and Fitness Center?

And Why Haven’t Any of these Crooks and Frauds been Charged, Prosecuted, Punished?

Maybe Ravena Mayor William “Moose” Misuraca, the director of the Albany County Department of Civil Service John Marsolais, Coeymans police chief Peter J. McKenna, or Albany County DA P. David Soares can offer a satisfactory explanation for that burning question!

But the worst shame and blame still falls on Cathy Deluca’s head! She knows shes stealing taxpayer money. She knows she’s unqualified to make the Ravena playpen work. She knows that Ravena can’t sustain a business that can’t compete. She knows that the village of Ravena should not be running a business that can’t compete. But she has no morals! She has no ethics! She has only her sow’s belly full of greed! Her only objective is to take as much as she can suck out of this community and then…STOP HER IN HER DIRTY TRACKS!

And do you wonder for a second why Annette Demitraszek and Kristine Biernacki, Bruno appointees and Warner sock-puppets, who are supposed to be village clerks and public servants, refuse to respond to any demand under the New York State Freedom of Information Law by refusing to provide public access information, information that the public has a right to know, about the Ravena Health and Fitness Center? If they let the information out they feel they’ll all land in jail! Unless they disclose the information, there’s a Notice of Claim waiting to be served, and a lawsuit waiting to be filed. They may all have a date with the corrections system before this is over!

Ravena needs a Health and Fitness Center like a Bull Needs Tits!

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center

SHAME ON CATHY DELUCA AND HER IMMORALITY AND DEPRAVITY!

SHAME ON MAYOR MISURACA FOR HIS INDIFFERENCE AND IRRESPONSIBILITY!

SHAME ON THE RAVENA VILLAGE COUNCIL FOR THEIR INCOMPETENCE AND IRRESPONSIBILITY!

SHAME ON VILLAGE OF RAVENA RESIDENTS FOR NOT FORCING AN END TO THIS CORRUPT FARCE!

Emperor Has New Clothes! Cathy Deluca on her way to the bank; Ravena residents stand by, idly watching! The Editor.

Dispatchers Distribute Misleading Flyer! Lies in Print…AGAIN!


Elections are coming up on November 4th

We have something to share about the local, state and national candidates seeking your votes and it’s important you know what we have to say. Local budgets are in the making and you need to get to village, town and board of education meetings and have your say! Stay tuned in the coming week. You won’t be disappointed!


AFSCME, American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees, the union representing the Coeymans dispatchers has distributed a sloppy liar-flier that is intended to misinform residents, as most unions are prone to do, and can’t even get its numbers straight. If the dispatchers’ union can’t count or get its numbers straight, how can we depend on the dispatchers to get numbers right? But that’s not the real problem. The real problem is that the flyer shoots the dispatchers in the foot because it gives us the solid evidence we need to prove that the dispatchers are the result of corrupt hiring processes in the town of Coeymans town hall. Most of the dispatchers are relatives of employees of the town of Coeymans, the majority being relatives of employees of the police department. Some of them even hold several jobs right in Coeymans town hall!

Here are the mugshots featured on the AFSCME flyer distributed in Coeymans.

Here are the mug shots featured on the AFSCME liar-flier distributed in Coeymans.

As anyone with half-a-brain can clearly see, the heading reads “14 Coeymans residents” but we count only 12 in the mug shots and one of them is blacked out, according to information received from the town of Coeymans, that person was terminated. So that leaves 11 dispatchers. Where are the other three, AFSCME? Please let us know who they are when you find them, won’t you?

(Click this link to read the entire Dispatcher Liar-Flyer Dispatch[1].)

Of the remaining 11, three are almost legitimately fair hires: A. Mueller, S. Leonardo and McMullen. So far we haven’t found that they’re related to anyone in town hall but that’s not yet final. Justin Hotaling may be a relative of the local family, one of whom was Coeymans town supervisor before Flach. It’s hard to believe that anyone in the dispatchers’ office isn’t related to someone in the Coeymans police department. Here’s why:

And it keeps a job opening for your other inbreeders.

And it keeps a job opening for your other inbreeders.

Coeymans dispatcher Brian Dunnegan‘s smiling puss is in the top row. Dunnegan’s nephew (his sister’s son), David Debucco, fourth in from the left, is a dispatcher. Dispatcher David Debucco is the son of Santa “Sandy” Debucco whom you might know as the building inspector for the village of Ravena (p.t. $8,157.00 +) and the town of Coeymans ($11,236 +) but he’s also a full-time employee at the Albany Airport! Sound like a lot of jobs? Does to us but apparently not to the village of Ravena or to the town of Coeymans who have him inspecting buildings. Pretty cozy so far, right?

Tucked in between Brian Dunnegan and his nephew, David Debacco, we have none other than D. Darlington, former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington’s own daughter! Talk about nepotism, getting your family members a job!

In the first row, second to the last, we have Dawn LaMountain ($46,994+ a year, and her husband works for the town of Coeymans making $46,221+)*, confidential secretary to former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington. Dawn LaMountain also moonlights as a Coeymans dispatcher. Our question is this: How does Dawn LaMountain juggle her time to be a “confidential secretary” and a Coeymans dispatcher? Sound fishy? It gets fishier, read on…

Let’s stay with the LaMountains for another minute. Bottom row, third in from the left you see Nicholas “Nick” LaMountain. You’ve already heard about LaMountains chubby kid who put’s the “Mountain” in LaMountain. He’s the one who got a job in the Coeymans police department but can’t pass the physical, despite several tries, because of his weight. No problem! When your mother is “confidential secretary” to the Coeymans police chief, you’re job on the Coeymanazi police force is never at risk. He’s still parading around in his cop costume but has he passed the physical fitness test yet? Your guess is as good as ours. But he’s also a Coeymans dispatcher, like his mom!

The last photo in the top row is Dillon Tyre. His mother works in the town of Coeymans clerk’s office and his father is a cop. Let’s get the whole family a job in Coeymans town hall, why doncha? Maybe good old dad can come in and play Coeymans cop too!

Not much to say about Kyle Kearney except that he’s a teacher at the RCS high school making a hefty chunk of cash with benefits. But Kearney is also a Coeymans dispatcher. Question is, shouldn’t he be preparing his lessons rather than moonlighting. Doesn’t the RCS CSD pay him enough??? By the way, both Kyle Kearney and Brian Dunnegan are on the “rescue squad”. There’s a bizarre sort of incest breeding here so we’ll leave it at that. But you can see how the tentacles just weave in and weave out in Coeymans.

Most of these people are hogging two or three other jobs besides the dispatcher position!

The whole liar-flier is a pile of crapola! As you can see, “14 Coeymans residents” will not be “losing their jobs” at all! If there are even 14 dispatchers, the liar-flier doesn’t document that claim. The flyer makes it sound like these jokers will be out on the street and starving if the dispatcher positions are eliminated, which is not the case at all. Most of these people are hogging two or three other jobs besides the dispatcher position! The ones who might not have two or three other so-called jobs (we’re thinking now of maybe A. Mueller only) certainly will not be out on the street. Think of the unemployed in this community who might be scrounging for an income and these greedy bastards crying misery when they’re sucking up income all over the place! Greedy bastards, that’s the only description that fits them!

They’re all INSIDERS. The jobs weren’t offered to Coeymans residents but were snatched up by insiders, or the INSIDERS made sure their own kids got the jobs. Right? Look at former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington: Darlington didn’t even look outside his own family to find a hireling; he plopped his own daughter in the position! And no one in Coeymans town hall made a peep! You weren’t nor was your kid good enough to get the job, not even to apply, but now you’re good enough to save their asses. No way, José!


We currently have a Republican majority on both the village of Ravena board, under mayor William “Moose” Misuraca, and the town of Coeymans, under town supervisor Stephen Flach, but neither Ravena nor Coeymans seems to get anything productive done. All they seem to do is invite scandal and muck-ups one after the other. Why is that Mr Misuraca, Mr Flach? You have the majorities and the votes on your boards, why don’t you do something other than lower the quality of life in our communities, spending more and more money on duplicated services.


They do what they do best: Lie and Spread Misinformation and Anxiety. The FEAR AGENDA to keep their ill-gotten jobs!

They do what they do best:
Lie and Spread Misinformation and Anxiety.

The FEAR AGENDA to keep their ill-gotten jobs!

The Dispatcher liar-flier spreads more misinformation: “This will not save the town money—it will just shift the expense from one place to another.” That’s a brown faced lie! But it’s nothing new for Coeymans. That’s how they keep it all in the family.

Eliminate the Coeymans Dispatchers Incest Club and the Coeymans police department at the same time! They’re both duplicating services that we’re already paying for, and they’re doing a lousy job of it! Here’s why:

As you may already know, the New York State Police and the Albany County Sheriff’s deputies patrol the town of Coeymans. The town of Coeymans is also covered by a sophisticated emergency response system operated by the County of Albany and paid for, like the New York State Police and the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, with your tax dollars. The NYSP and the Albany County Sheriff’s Department are highly trained professionals and have the latest in equipment and resources. The Albany County 911 system is also highly effective and has the latest equipment and highly trained employees. Compare that with the Coeymans police department and its dispatchers, both of which are duplications of service we already receive. (click here to learn about Enhanced 911.)

But here’s the real problem: the Coeymans police are second or third-rate. The dispatchers are second tier and are working with ancient equipment that we really can’t afford to replace. But what we can do is eliminate both the Coeymans police department and the dispatchers and, if they’re needed, really needed, let the state and county agencies hire them on and train and equip them. Pay only once as we see it.

9-1-1-enhanced
[PSAP = public-safety answering point, sometimes called “public-safety accesspoint”]

Say you place a 911 call for emergency assistance. That call will go to a 911 center, usually Albany County, it then is broadcast to first responders. (Click here to learn how it works: How Location Tracking Works) Only Albany County has the paramedics fly car for immediate paramedical assistance. EMTs may be available locally, but let’s get back to the chain of notification for a moment. Albany immediately  notifies the available emergency response teams, including Coeymans. Or you can call 756-2059 (Coeymans dispatch) and hope for the best, which may not turn out to be the best or the smartest thing you could do in an emergency. But if you call 756-2059 you’re not really gaining anything because they’d be automatically notified by Albany or one of the other 911 centers together with a number of other available response teams. Call 756-2059 and you are notifying only Coeymans who will have to request assistance from other response teams anyway, if they can’t handle the case themselves.

Problem is that when you notify just the Coeymans dispatchers that’s likely what you’ll get. But here’s the problem: Coeymans will have to then broadcast the call to locals who may or may not be available immediately, depending on where they are and the time of day. Now what? Then they have to get to their equipment and then to the scene. Now do you have an idea of response times? Call 911 and everybody available knows and can be on the way. Call 756-2059 and you get Coeymans dispatch etc. etc. You’re dead already!

Here’s another tidbit for you: Did you know that the town of Coeymans pays the village of Ravena or a Ravena “organization” — as you probably expect, this is as clear as mud and no one in office seems to know all of the facts at the time of this writing — more than $144, 960 for ambulance services? That’s because there’s an agreement between Ravena and Coeymans to do this. And did you know that even though we pay Ravena more than $144,000, you will still get soft-billed for the call and transport? Yeah! Like paying twice? But there’s another question: Where is the money going that you get billed and pay for the service? That’s apparently in addition to the $144,960 Ravena’s already getting. We’d be very grateful for any clarification anyone can provide on this particular issue. That’s a good question to ask Ms Virginia Pearson of the Ravena Rescue Squad.

So there you have the truth. Don’t believe the lies being stuffed down your throats that you’ll all be dead by morning if the dispatchers are eliminated. Don’t believe the fairy-tale that you’ll be overtaken by druggies and burglars if the Coeymans police are eliminated. You are safe and you are protected by real professionals who can respond in a fraction of the time and with better overall training and resources and you won’t be paying twice to provide everybody in Coeymans town hall who has a kid with a cushy job. Coeymans town hall should not continue to be a money pit family business. It’s time to tell the Coeymans town board to clean up its pig sty.

Call Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach and tell him you did the math and the Coeymans Dispatchers and the Coeymans Police Department have to go! Cut off their funding and redirect the money to more essential services!

Don’t let the family business tell you how to spend your tax money!

Next Coeymans Town Board Meeting
Monday, October 27, 2014, 07:00 pm

Eliminate the Coeymans Dispatcher Pool and the Coeymans Police Department!

And for those of you who might think this is a purely local issue, we’d like you to visit another very widely read blog, New York Citizen One, and a very revealing article on of all places, the town of Coeymans, entitled Citizens Of Coeymans Must Unite (Click on that link to read the article.) That blog seems to have gotten it right and recommends a general clean-up in Coeymans. Read it and weep…or do something about it and clean things up! (The article also contains some good bits on Albany County DA David Soares, former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington’s wife, Leah Darlington, and more!)

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

UPDATE: The Ravena Health and Fitness Center, Cathy Deluca’s playpen, is a couple of steps closer to being eliminated. The village of Ravena council has already started deliberations on eliminating that money pit. So Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca were burning up the email circuits and telephone lines trying to get their friends to show up to demand that the Ravena Health and Fitness Center stay open. But they could only muster up some 20 supporters. Do the math: even if those 20 people paid full dues and spent at least a couple of bucks on drinks during the year, that would likely fall short of a total of $300, tops. So twenty people wanting the place to stay open would mean a total of maximum $6000 income in an entire  year. But let’s be fair and say another 20 friends of Warner and Deluca wanted to be there at the meeting but couldn’t get there (they were probably already at Planet Fitness). That would make a grand total of double those who did make it or 40 people. Again let’s do the math: $300 a year, maximum, times 40 members gives us $12,000 total income for the RHFC. That’s not even half Cathy Deluca’s salary as manager (She’s making more than $35,000 plus benefits!). And she’s had almost 2 full years to make the place work and has failed (like she did twice before). And it doesn’t even come close to the more than $105,000 budgeted to keep that money pit’s doors open. The good news is that the village of Ravena is finally getting smart and may actually do the right thing! The question is: Will they have the balls to actually do more than talk about it?

Compare spending at least $240.00 a year for a membership at the Ravena Health and Fitness Center when you can get Planet Fitness not 15 minutes away for $10.00 a month with all of the newest equipment, professional training, separate changing rooms, showers, all the comforts. Do the math: that’s about $120 for Planet Fitness or HALF what you’d spend to work out in a pig pen, the Ravena Heaps and Fatness Center! For $20 a month you can use any Planet Fitness in the country—at the time of this writing there are more than 800—. Again, do the math. Don’t you think we can spend the $105,000 dollars on something better than a place for a bottle-blond Bimbo to squat? We do!

Call Ravena Mayor William “Moose” Misuraca and tell him you did the math and the Ravena Health and Fitness Center has to go! Don’t let 20 morons tell you how to spend your tax money!

As can be expected, the Village of Ravena website is malfunctioning.
