Capital District YMCA: Big Salaries, Big Assets, but Still Begging!

The Capital District YMCA, an organization operating as a so-called non-profit organization, but holding more than $50 million dollars in tax-exempt real-estate assets in the Capital District of New York (Albany-Schenectady-Rensselaer, and Greene counties in New York state) is a fraud.

The problem with all of this is that the Capital District YMCA  misleads the public, and nickel-and-dimes its membership!

Problem with the CDYMCA is that it’s a load of hogwash!

OUR MISSION
To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

Nice words but they’re not backed by performance, conduct, or the facts!

Why do we write something like that? Well, an organization that pays its CEO, Mr. C. David Brown more than $335,000 a year plus benefits, and pays its numerous executive directors, directors, and managers in the high 5-figures and 6-figures salary ranges, certainly shouldn’t be considered a non-profit. Well, maybe it doesn’t operate in the black because its CEO, Mr. Brown, and its other executives hiding out at their corporate offices at 465 New Karner Road (Albany) are carrying off the major portion of any cash the organization might have.

The Capital District YMCA has amassed a fortune in real estate in the Capital District area but doesn’t pay a dime in property taxes. Imagine the taxes on properties valued at at least $55 million and what those tax dollars could do for the communities where the Y has its properties.

The Y’s executives send out all kinds of propaganda telling everyone how much they’re doing for the communities but anyone with half a brain has to ask the question: “What could we do for the community if the Y paid their taxes?” With those assets, we’d guess a good many communities could do a hell of a lot! And think of the money that could be saved by not having to pay some fat CEO almost a half-million in salary plus benefits! Add to that the fat salaries of the weasels hiding at 465 New Karner Road, and all of the 4 or 5 so-called “executive directors” pulling 6-figures, and the other “directors” running the local facilities. That’s one big pile of dough, people, yet they still cry poverty!!! Yet they still accumulate assets in the area. And they still are fully exempt on the tax rolls, and don’t pay a dime in taxes.

CDYMCA CEO C. David Brown collects more than $335,000 in salary.

We’ve already reported on how scandalous the Capital District YMCA has been but they have no shame and continue to laugh their way to the bank, while begging for more and more. Here are some examples from just last year and this year:

  • In 2019, the CDYMCA sent out a letter to all members informing them that there would be a $1 increase in monthly membership dues.
  • In 2019, the CDYMCA sent out a letter to all members informing them that the veterans savings would be changed to 25%; in other words, the CDYMCA cut veterans discount by 50%, a cut that increased some members’ dues by 50% (for example, one member’s monthly dues went from $26/month to $39/month!)
  • In February 2020, the CDYMCA sent out a letter to all members informing them that there would be a $2 increase in monthly membership dues starting in April 2020 (already in effect as of this writing).

Another great decision made by our little illiterate friend, Erin Breslin!

  • In March 2020 a form letter allegedly sent out by CDYMCA CEO C. David Brown – Yes. That’s the same scoundrel who’s taking over $335,000 in salary from the Y – asking members to become sustaining members, that is, to continue paying monthly dues while the Ys are closed.

Now. Think what would happen if a local business were to nickel-and-dime their customers the way the CDYMCA is doing. How long do you think theyd be in business? But the fact is, the local business has to pay its taxes in addition to having to pay its employees and maybe even benefits. The local business is not very likely to get any government handouts, but the so-called very profitable non-profit will carry off big-time government support, subsidies, and grants! We see something very, very wrong in this picture. Don’t you?

Here’s a test: The task is to read the message below and somehow twist it into meaning that the writer (1) doesn’t want to be charged any more, and (2) wants to cancel his/her membership:

Well, if you couldn’t find that in the message, neither could we. What the writer does say, and what Breslin seems to miss , is this part:

“I’d like to know the CDYMCA’s plans to either credit or reimburse the monthly dues collected from patron’s accounts and to suspend further deductions of dues until CDYMCA can open its doors and provide access to the services I have contracted to receive.”

We don’t see anything about “cancelling membership” in there or anywhere. What we do see is a fair question. But Ms Erin Breslin, Senior Director of Marketing and Membership at the CDYMCA did read in that message that the member didn’t want to pay dues anymore and wanted his/her membership cancelled. Go figure.

But Breslin is one of those CDYMCA executives who is probably pulling a 6-figure salary from the so-called non-profit, non-taxpaying organization. But Breslin can’t read!!! And that’s not the first instance of Breslin’s dyslexia! She played the same games when we inquired about the CDYMCA’s slashing of its membership discount offered to veterans! Sure, slash the veteran’s discounts and then nickel-and-dime members because you want to “keep pace with wages and benefits,” while offering freebies to parasites and non-dues paying members (their dues are covered by their insurance coverage)

We guess the message the CDYMCA is sending is that if you’re illiterate or just plain stupid, there is still a place where you can make a cool hundred grand and get away with it!

WHERE IS THE NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF TAXATION AND FINANCE, THE LOCAL TAX COLLECTORS AND ASSESSORS, THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE, OUR LEGISLATORS, OTHER MEMBERS WHILE ALL OF THIS SCAMMING IS GOING ON? WHERE ARE THE VETERANS ORGANIZATIONS WHILE THE CDYMCA IS ABUSING OUR VETERANS? THEY’RE ASLEEP ON WATCH AND NOT DOING THEIR JOBS, THAT’S WHERE THEY ARE!

When the cat’s asleep, the rats play!
Who’s monitoring the non-profits, anyway?

Problem is: Breslin actually cancelled the member’s membership and, when contacted by the member, insisted that the member asked that his/her membership be cancelled!!! Unbelievable! Can this be a case of retaliation by a CDYMCA employee? Was Breslin acting out of personal emotion and not in her capacity as an organization officer?


Editor’s Note:

* In fact, the $2 per month increase announced in February became effective in April; with that $2/month increase in CDYMCA membership dues, the deduction from the member’s account for April was actually $40.50 as opposed to $39.00. The corrected total for the above would be $79.50. We have been informed that CDYMCA has since credited the member’s account in the amount of $79.50 but at the same time, cancelled the member’s membership! Is that what CEO C. David Brown meant in his begging letter (see below)? Ask for dues forgiveness during the lock-down and have your membership cancelled? This looks like another Capital District YMCA snow job to us! Or is it retaliation? A personal punishment for a particular member? Looks to us like this could blow up in CDYMCA’s face, and turn into some bad publicity and a lawsuit! Bad move AGAIN, Erin Breslin, very bad!  Breslin seems to be very good at making very bad membership decisions!


Now, remember, we noted above that early in 2019 the CDYMCA increased everyone’s monthly dues by $1/month. Then in about September or so, they slashed the veterans discount by 50%, and then in April 2020, increased member’s monthly dues by another $2/month.

Remember also, that CEO Brown sent out a letter in March 2020 asking members to continue paying monthly dues as “sustaining members,” while the Y was closed. That letter was more than 3600 words long and repeated over and again how great the Y is, and how great the love fest is thanks to the Y. It was a very cleverly written letter covering the front and the back of a page. But here’s the problem, and here’s why the member had to ask about whether dues would be forgiven during the lock-down: Brown dedicates only 23 words out of the 3600 words to say that a member who couldn’t afford to donate monthly dues could put his/her membership on hold. Here’s the text:

In a telephone conversation between a member and Erin Breslin, you know, the illiterate Senior Director for Marketing and Membership at the CDYMCA, Breslin asked the member:

Will the real Erin Breslin please step forward and take responsibility? Resign?

BRESLIN: Yes, sir. So, if we put all of our memberships on hold then when we’re opening back up, what will we use…what funds will we use to pay our employees returning?

And the member responds:

MEMBER:     That’s not my problem. You take a pay cut. Other people…What are other businesses doing? What are other businesses doing with their employees? They’ve furloughed them! They’ve laid them off! They’ve given them work-at-home opportunities! That is not my problem. If you want to run an organization, you figure out how you have to run it. It’s quite simple. Don’t ask me how you’re supposed to pay your employees. Tell Mr. David Brown or whatever his name is to take a 50% pay cut, and use that money to pay your employees. You’ve got $55 … million in assets; pledge some of them! That’s up to you! You figure out how you’re gonna run your organization. Don’t ask me! That’s not my problem. I have to figure out how I run my life; you have to figure out how to run your life … and your organization. Now, if you can’t figure out how to run your organization with your executive directors, and your, your directors, your executives, your board, then I think you’d better find a different job, to be very honest with you. Because you’re in the position you’re in figure out how to work things out, and if you’re faced with a crisis situation, I think that’s where good management, and training, and knowledge, and wisdom comes into play. Not [by] telling members we can’t figure out how we’re going to do this, so we’re going to continue being unfair to you. I’m surprised that you would actually ask me a question like that.

We are informed that CDYMCA CEO C.D. Brown and several other officers of the CDYMCA, Carl Oropallo, Mark Thurman, in addition to E. Breslin, were contacted regarding the veterans issue and the dues during closure, but only Breslin responded, albeit a bit stupidly. We are continuing to follow this Capital District YMCA story, and will be contacting legislators, the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance, the IRS, and members of Congress for answers and to demand an inquiry/investigation. We are in the process of contacting veterans organizations, including the county veterans affairs offices, in order to demand that they take some action regarding the cut in the veterans savings.

Good news is that it’s an election year and veterans are a brotherhood. Some of us still stand behind our veterans and will be watching how veterans organizations respond and what they do. We’ll also be following up with elected officials and hold their feet to the fire on what they do to fix these situations.

This is YOU, if you’re not holding the non-profits’ feet to the fire, and making them accountable and transparent!

What do you think about all of this stinking mess?

Congressional Bickering Costs American Lives

Months of worthless investigations and testimony, a failed impeachment investigation and proceeding, headed by a bunch of idiots elected to public office by another bunch of idiots, all while in Wuhan, China, the next killer pandemic was brewing. At the same time the US Congress was playing their backstabbing, witchhunting antics, and giving away American taxpayer’s medical equipment and supplies, while ignoring the basics for the homeland, like healthcare, the elderly, the working poor, and Congress and state legislatures were legislating abortion and pay hikes for themselves, the highly-paid executives of America’s so-called non-profits — like the Captial District YMCA and Easton Mountain sex camp — were abusing veterans or promoting promiscuous sex, while collecting six-figure salaries, WHERE WERE YOU?!?!

Meanwhile, the Pentagon will Provide 100,000 Body Bags.

Now that you have learned what self-isolation, quarantine, social-distancing, empty supermarket shelves, people roaming the aisles and streets with face masks all means, maybe you’d like to re-evaluate your status as a “free American,” who is free to die as the result of government and elected official’s negligence and stupidity.

Look, people, this situation doesn’t happen in a single administration; it takes multiple administrations to create a problem like this! This has been brewing in Washington for at least three presidencies: Bush (remember 911!), Obama, and now Trump. It’s not Trump’s fault, either, but he’s the face we glue to the administration. The fault lies in the Senate and the House of Representatives, in Albany, and in Washington, DC. If you look at what’s been going on in Congress over the past two years, you might want to find a barf bag. It’s sickening, so sickening that Americans are now dying, and the Pentagon will be donating 100,000 body bags, while Nancy Pelosi and the gangsters in Washington D.C., are still pointing fingers and wagging their tongues.

White House experts have said that US deaths from the disease — currently at more than 5,100 — are expected to climb to between 100,000 and 240,000, even with mitigation efforts in force.

Is this the new Fear Factor? Is the US government trying to cause a panic? It has!

The New World Order has begun, people! You know now how you can be so infected with fear and anxiety by your government that you hoard toilet paper and paper towels; you race to Walmart and your local supermarket to empty the shelves. FEAR!!! AVOIDABLE FEAR!!!!

Businesses and government offices are CLOSED! Restaurants are CLOSED! You are told to stay home!!! See how easy it is to control you? Now we know.

Schools have been closed for weeks. Even God is put on hold! Churches are open but not for public worship! No wakes, funerals, etc. No closure for the bereaved! Thanks to poor or absent government! Incompetent elected officials! More finger-pointing and accusations while Americans are dying!!!

But the United States Goverenment has a solution for its incompetence: SPENDING! What’s Inside The Senate’s $2 Trillion Coronavirus Aid Package, an emergency aid spending package that is spending money we don’t have, but will have to back up in tax dollars. Great planning, right? Poor planning costs us a bundle when a pandemic hits us and then, in order to take our attention off the poor planning and incompetent government, the same incompetent government passes an irresponsible aid package to cover their tracks!  Are you going to continue swallowing this shit? Are you still going to sleep on your stomach waiting for the …. ? Read what the package contains at What’s Inside The Senate’s $2 Trillion Coronavirus Aid Package. But once again, big business gets the lion’s share of the so-called aid: $500 billion compared with $377 billion to small businesses and a stinking paltry $153 billion to public health. We can see where Congress’ loyalties are.

You all have dumped your hard-wire landlines and now are addicted to Facebook and Twitter, where you get all your information and news! How convenient for the Controllers.

People are getting fired or relieved of their commands in the military for speaking out about the government’s denials of support in the crisis. That’s censorship. That’s propaganda. That’s authoritarianism, totalitarianism, the first step towards Big Brother becoming the next fascist dictator!

You are all addicted to your electronic devices, your smartphones but what will you do when some military genius or government officials ORDER THE CELL PHONE TOWERS deenergized? What will you do when they suspend communications by microwave transmission? You’ll race around in circles like a cornered rat, that’s what!!! You’re trapped in the booby trap set by your American freedoms, your greed, and your ignorance. Stupid sheeple!!!

OK. So you won’t believe us. Denial is very effective, isn’t it? But perhaps you’ll believe a well-respected physician, the editor-in-chief of a respected source for the medical profession. Here’s his recent editorial that appeared in the online medical journal for physicians, Medscape:

Topol: US Betrays Healthcare Workers in Coronavirus Disaster
Eric Topol, MD

March 30, 2020

Find the latest COVID-19 news and guidance in Medscape’s Coronavirus Resource Center.

The year 2020 started with American physicians, nurses, and the whole healthcare workforce dispirited, in a deep state of burnout, with the worst rates of clinical depression and suicides that have been recorded. Indeed, this was not confined to the United States; a global epidemic of burnout had been diagnosed. But things were about to get considerably worse for the healthcare workforce.

In December 2019 an epidemic of pneumonia, with many fatalities, erupted in Wuhan, China. The pathogen was sequenced and determined to be a novel coronavirus on January 5, 2020, and was subsequently named SARS-CoV-2. The first patient in the United States with COVID-19, the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, was diagnosed in Seattle on January 21, which was within 24 hours of the first patient diagnosed in South Korea, a key country for comparison (Figure, adapted from Our World in Data).

Figure 1. Testing for COVID-19 in the United States and South Korea

The First Phase: “Silent” US Spread

Unlike South Korea, which quickly started testing for COVID-19 using the World Health Organization (WHO) test, the United States refused the WHO test, opting to develop its own through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). But the CDC test was ultimately found to be flawed and represents one of many government stumbles. Without an adequate test, there were nearly 50 days from the first patients in both countries before the United States started to ramp up testing. Why was this so critically important?

During this extended phase in the United States, there were countless numbers of patients presenting with pneumonia and respiratory tract symptoms to emergency rooms, urgent care centers, and doctors’ offices. Without the ability to make the diagnosis of COVID-19 or even suspect it, these patients unwittingly spread their infections to healthcare workers. Also, during this first phase of spread, there was likely — albeit still not yet validated — a high rate (approximately 30%) of asymptomatic carriers for COVID-19, which further amplified the chances for doctors and health professionals to be infected.

For the sake of comparison, during the month of February, South Korea performed more than 75,000 tests (versus just 352 in the United States) and adopted all of the WHO best practices, which includes massive testing, tracing every contact of a person infected and testing that person, quarantine of all known cases, and social distancing.

The United States did none of these. Instead, officials repeatedly made bad choices that put public health in jeopardy, along with the healthcare workers charged with caring for the public.

South Korea, meanwhile, got ahead of its outbreak and became a model in the world for how that was achieved. But it wasn’t just South Korea that reacted well. As Atul Gawande summarized, Singapore and Hong Kong also adopted all of the WHO practices, including providing protection for their healthcare workers. In both places, healthcare professionals were expected to wear surgical masks for all patient interactions. That practice turns out to foreshadow the second phase of failure in the United States.

The Second Phase: The War Without Ammo

Although Seattle is where the first cluster of cases occurred, it was the unchecked number of patients diagnosed in New York City in early March that led to the full realization of how ill-equipped the country is in terms of personal protective equipment (PPE), intensive care unit beds, and mechanical ventilators.

The dire, inexplicable lack of masks is well recapitulated by Farhad Manjoo in “How the World’s Richest Country Ran Out of a 75-Cent Face Mask”, and Megan Ranney, MD, MPH, and colleagues similarly describe the profound deficits in PPE and ventilators in a perspective published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Together, a situation was set up for healthcare workers to not have masks — or to reuse them for days on end — and lack other protective gear. And this is about plain 75 cent masks, not the N95s that are better for blocking aerosol droplets.

But the required sharing of equipment is not just among doctors and nurses; it even extends to patients sharing a ventilator in some intensive care units. To put some numbers on ventilators, we will need several hundred thousand to a million but have fewer than 160,000 throughout the country.

It’s bad enough that the United States was totally unprepared for a pandemic and has such an unimaginable shortage of requisite resources. But the situation still gets worse. On a widespread basis, doctors and nurses are being gagged and muzzled by administrators for expressing their concerns, and penalized or even fired when they do speak out.

Meanwhile, the unconscionable lack of COVID-19 testing has continued in this second phase. And with that, systematic testing of the workforce has yet to start, despite being desperately needed.

The Third Phase: Healthcare Professionals Broadly Infected and Dying

Back in Wuhan, Li Wenliang, a 33-year-old ophthalmologist, was one, if not the first, doctor to alert people in China of the outbreak. He died on February 7, 2020. But he certainly wasn’t the youngest doctor to die in China. Xia Sisi, a 29-year-old gastroenterologist, also died after a 35-day hospitalization.

Yet on March 11, from the Oval Office, President Trump stated, “Young and healthy people can expect to recover fully and quickly.”

By late March more than 54 doctors in Italy had already died, and in the Lombardy region of northern Italy, one of the worst hit regions in the world, 20% of the healthcare workforce have become confirmed cases. Now, in the United States, as large numbers of healthcare professionals are getting diagnosed with COVID-19 in Boston, New York, and other hotspot cities, young doctors are writing their wills and making provisional funeral plans.

COVID-19 was not supposed to kill young people, but young nurses and doctors are dying in the United States. There are many theories as to why this is happening, perhaps the best one is the viral load — the mass of COVID-19 inoculum.

Because healthcare workers are exposed to the sickest patients — often without access to the proper protective equipment — the heavy viral load may be overwhelming even young clinicians’ ability to mount a sufficient immune response to counter the infection.

That doctors and clinicians are succumbing to the virus is beyond a tragedy, as many of these dedicated individuals are dying unnecessarily, as a result of the no-testing and no-PPE fiascoes.

Yet a far greater toll in numbers is the temporary loss of clinicians to infections and sickness. This is the other poorly recognized exponential growth curve: As each doctor, nurse, respiratory therapist, paramedic, and patient-care person takes care of tens to hundreds of patients at any given time, the loss of even one of these individuals has a dramatic ripple effect on the shortage of professionals trained to care for affected patients, no less the non-COVID-19 usual patient mix. No number of accelerated medical school graduations (which are being announced) can compensate for these losses, not just by numbers but also by experience.

The handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States will go down as the worst public health disaster in the history of the country. The loss of lives will make 9/11 and so many other catastrophes appear much smaller in their scale of devastation. Perhaps what we in the medical community will remember most is how our country betrayed us at the moment when our efforts were needed most.

Question: Why is it that the death toll in the United States now exceeds that in China, where the whole thing started? Why is it that South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, were able to keep things under control but the United States cannot? Good ol’ American snobbery, poor planning, greed, and stupidity.

Instead of acting like a herd of cattle with mad cow disease (remember that one?), perhaps you should just sit down, meditate for a minute, collect your thoughts, clear your mind, and consider where the real problem lies, and how you’re going to face tomorrow, when this all clears up.

Think about how different you will be and how different the world will be for you post-COVID-19; sort of like the conditioning you received post-911? Is this another way of training you, conditioning you like Pavlov did with his dogs? Is that what you have become, a pack of trainable dogs? Now that’s something to be proud of, isn’t it?

Think about all of this next time you pledge allegiance to a flag; think about what you’re saying. Or have you forgotten completely how to THINK?

Think of it this way: What if you were the next one to fill a body bag. How would your survivors or your Senator explain your death to your terrified children? Think about that, won’t you?

So, enjoy your stockpile of toilet paper and paper towels. They’ll go well with that case of ketchup you’re hoarding. And wait for the next wave of fear and anxiety while you huddle in some dark corner, denying what’s going on around you.

Local Residents at Shop’n Save buying up toilet paper! How typical!

Cap District YMCA: Shameless Arrogance … AGAIN!!!

Stop the Scams!

We recently reported on the Capital District YMCA’s shameless slashing of veterans discounts by 50%, increasing veterans’ memberships up to 50%; one member reported his monthly dues went from $26 to $39/month! We also reported that despite numerous complaints and follow-up, Erin Breslin, Sr. Director of Marketing and Membership, the CDYMCA executive responsible for the reduction in the veterans discount, refused to reconsider their shameful decision. (See our report at YMCA DISGRACE!!! Veterans targeted by YMCA action.)

Senior Director of Marketing and Membership at Capital District YMCA

Shameless and Arrogant!!!

Capital District YMCA Wants NY Legislators to Funnel More Taxpayer Dollars into the Non-profit. We say: Let their execs, who are making 6-figure salaries take a pay cut first!!! CEO C. David Brown pulls more than $330,000 a year, while other execs pull their 6-figures.
NO MORE TAXPAYER DOLLARS!!! PAY YOUR FAIR SHARE!!!

We also recently reported on the incredible fact that the CDYMCA has tens of millions of dollars in property assets in the Capital District but doen’t pay a dime in property tax! We further reported that CDYMCA president and CEO, C. David Brown pulls in more than $330,000 a year in salary, while other executives are pulling 6-figure salaries. Yet the CDYMCA is registered as a non-profit organization and doesn’t pay a dime in property taxes! (See our report at Capital District YMCA: Millions in Assets, Pays No Tax!.)

J.D. Brown Exec Dir CDYMCA, refused to respond.

We reported that the CDYMCA calls itself a charity but charges above-market rates for memberships while also charging market or above-market rates for some of their programs. Yet they don’t pay a dime in tax!

Today, on March 17, 2020, the Capital District YMCA sent out an Action Alert that reads:

ACTION ALERT
Act to protect YMCAs during the COVID-19 crisis!
Dear Advocate,

The New York State Legislature plans to vote on legislation today to address the COVID-19 pandemic. Tell them that your Ys need a COVID-19 package that supports the YMCA. You can take part in this advocacy by sending this important letter to your legislators. They need to hear from you about the importance of significant funding to help YMCAs statewide cover the costs associated with full-time and part-time employees, as well as the loss of membership, programming and donation revenue.

Please write to your state legislators today!

Enough is enough, already!!! This is getting really sickening!!!

The CDYMCA’sexecutives, Erin Breslin (CDYMCA executive), David Brown (CDYMCA CEO/President), Carl Oropallo (Executive Director), Mark Thurman (Director, Operations, Bethlehem), received a communication this week, after David Brown, the guy pulling more than $330,000 in salary, broadcast a message to Y members that the CDYMCA facilities would be closed for one week for “deep cleaning.” Those executives were asked one simple question: Would members’ accounts be credited for that week that they could not use the facilities? No one from the CDYMCA has answered that question but we’re pretty certain what the answer is.

What is this “deep cleaning” thing, anyway. A facility like the CDYMCAshould have extraordinary hygiene and sanitary measures in place as routine! The cleaning agents and disinfectants they use in the pools, locker rooms, workout areas should all be sufficient to kill just about anything! Sick people don’t work out or take aerobic exercise classes. Normally, the rule of most gym etiquette is to wipe down equipment after use using disinfectants that should be provided. (We are informed that the disinfectant and paper towels are provided for this purpose at commercial fitness clubs and at the Y. The problem is, personnel don’t enforce the practice.)So what’s this deep cleaning that’s going on for a week?

Editor’s aside: According to our information based on research of the recommendations for what so-called “deep cleaning” involves, the CDYMCA is again playing with terms. There are a number of deep cleaning methods currently being employed to minimize the spread of COVID-19, and none of them, ranging from airlines to the New York Stock Exchange, involve shutting down for an entire week. In fact, the deep cleaning being done involves mainly high contact surfaces, which should be routine day-to-day cleaning practices in a place like a fitness center or a YMCA. First and foremost, the most effective preventive measure is to avoid contact with individuals who have clear symptoms of cough, sneeze, or fever of undermined origin. But that’s common sense! Social distancing, even if around asymptomatic persons, is also proving to be effective but Americans are already socially distanced, so that’s a no-brainer! Self-isoation or self-quarantine is the ultimate step for individuals who know they have been in contact with a symptomatic individual, or an area in which symptomatic individuals have been, or who have traveled to endemic areas, or have symptoms or have been diagnosed with a viral infection or infection with COVID-19. Persons-at-increased-risk, that is persons who are at increased risk of infection generally, are well-advised to stay clear of crowds. When in doubt, call your pubic health hot-line or consult your doctor. So what is the CDYMCA doing for a so-called deep clean that is over and above their normal sanitizing? We’ll ask them and see if they come up with anything. (Sources: “How Big Businesses Get a Deep Clean” (New York Times article; “Ships, Planes And Other Spots Are Getting A ‘Deep Clean.’ What’s That Mean?” (NPR article), both last accessed on March 17, 2020.)

The CDC and World Health Organization have reported that the virus doesn’t survive long on surfaces that have not been disinfected; isn’t it reasonable that the virus would survive for an even shorter time on disinfected surfaces, if at all? (See our report on COVID-19 at Smalbany Statement on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic.)
But let’s get back to the shameless Action Alert broadcast today by the non-profit, non-taxpaying Capital District YMCA:
That message reads: “They (state legislators) need to hear from you about the importance of significant funding to help YMCAs statewide cover the costs associated with full-time and part-time employees, as well as the loss of membership, programming and donation revenue.” That’s absolutely ridiculous!
In 2018, the CDYMCAincreased every member’s monthly dues by $1, which adds up to a hefty amount each month. Then in 2019, they slashed veterans discounts by 50%, adding more to their pockets! Now the greedy bastards are asking members to write to legislators to ask that they now give taxpayer dollars to support a non-taxpaying glutton to help cover costs!!!
We say: Any legislator who votes to support this shameless expression of greed and unfairness in our tax system should be run out of the Legislature!!! We have a better idea: Mr C. David Brown, Ms Erin Breslin, Mr Marc Thurman, Mr Carl Oropallo, and their coworkers should take a pay cut!!! How’s that for an idea?
For an organization that contributes nothing to the pubic treasury by being wholly tax-exempt to ask taxpayers and legislators to provide more funds to them to cover costs is one of the most shameful and arrogant things to come from them yet!
The non-profit scam in New York and around the country needs to be reexamined, revised, and most of the scammers need to start paying their fair share of property taxes.

Easton Mountain, Cambridge, NY
A Gay Retreat Community
A Non-profit Organization

We contacted the Washington County District Attorney’s office some time ago with an inquiry about this place; we never got a response.
There’s a sex camp for gay men in Cambridge, NY, called Easton Mountain. They operate facilities on several acres of prime property with a number of newly renovated buildings and grounds. They claim to be the gay community’s gift to the world but Easton Mountain is the gay community’s gift to the organizers and staff of Easton Mountain. They claim their non-profit status on the basis of spiritual and charity-related work but when you look at their programs, which include neotantra (= so-called sacred sex), intimacy training, orgasm training, erotic massage, even a phony “diploma” course offered by the visiting Brit, etc., and the cost of those programs, upwards of $400 to more than $1000 for a week (5 nights) program!!!They even import some phony sex guru from the UK to facilitate some of their events! We’ll be looking at their filings and report on how much government support they receive in lieu of paying taxes. Did you know that your tax dollars are going to organizations like that? (The most published recent financials, the IRS 990 dates back to 2014!)  See our articles: Tantra or Sex Services? (5/2019), The Follow-up (6/2019), Sex for Sale: The Follow-up II (7/2019).
,

We will obtain the voting information and report who in the New York State Legislature votes to funnel more taxpayer money to the CDYMCA and non-profit scammers like them. We’ll publish the names of those legislators who voted to send your tax dollars to the scammers. And we’ll remind you of their freewheeling and dealing when elections roll around.
In the meantime, we urge you, our many readers to support us in our own Action Alert, and to contact your legislators and warn them if they give another dime away to tax scamming non-profits who can afford to pay their executives and directors six-figure salaries, the legislators are going to be looking for jobs!!!

PAY YOUR SHARE, YMCA!!!

Information on the Poop Senders Investigation

Since some — actually quite a few — crimes seem to get swept under the carpet or lost completely by incompetent investigators in Coeymans, and selectively prosecuted — depending on who you are or whom you know — by the Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares,  we thought we’d help this one along. This case is so obscene, it has to be thoroughly investigated and the perps identified, apprehended, prosecuted, sentenced, and publicly shamed!

Read the first article on this case at: Coeymans Only Gets Sicker; Criminal Perps Being Investigated

Can Contento handle the case? We doubt it!
Better call in the Girl Scouts; they’ll do a better job!


Can Law Enforcement, Coeymans Police and the Albany County DA even spell the word?


A note from the Editor:

It’s always best to take affirmative steps to protect yourself and your family against criminals and criminal activity. Terror and terrorists come in any number of packages and flavors, some foreign, others domestic. Here are some tips from the FBI:

Section 802 of the USA PATRIOT Act (Pub. L. No. 107-52) expanded the definition of terrorism to cover “”domestic,”” as opposed to international, terrorism. A person engages in domestic terrorism if they do an act “dangerous to human life” that is a violation of the criminal laws of a state or the United States, if the act appears to be intended to: (i) intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; recently engaged in activities that could subject them to being investigated as engaging in domestic terrorism.

How Citizens Can Protect Themselves and Report Suspicious Activity

It is important for people to protect themselves both online and in-person, and to report any suspicious activity they encounter. The simplest ways to accomplish this are to:

  • Remain aware of your surroundings.
  • Refrain from oversharing personal information.
  • Say something if you see something. The insular nature of today’s violent extremists makes them difficult for law enforcement to identify and disrupt before an attack. Many times, a person’s family or friends may be the first to notice a concerning change in behavior that may indicate a person is mobilizing to violence.

The Facts

On or about November 13, 2019, a person or persons yet to be identified, made a purchase from the online vendor poopsenders.com, and caused to be mailed via the United States Postal Service, at least 5 packages containing feces of an unspecified species, to addresses in the Town of Coeymans.

This sums up the perps.
Poop-in-a-Bag

The Vendor[1]

The seller of the product sent by first class mail via the United States Postal Service operates a business from an Internet site at poopsenders.com, and offers for sale a variety of animal by-products, namely, feces, which for payment the company will send by United States Postal Service, to recipients, whose names and addresses are provided by the purchaser of the product, namely animal feces.

The seller of the product packages the product for shipment but does not indicate on the shipping container that the container contains hazardous, dangerous, or offensive material.

The container containing the product is sent in a plain white envelope with no indication of its contents, and is apparently mailed via general mail-handling channels. The package shows a tracking number, which can be used to track the package en route, up to the point of delivery of the package.

The seller’s Internet site clearly states on its home page that their product is:

  • The Ultimate Gag Gift
  • “Sweet Revenge At Its Finest
  • “Guaranteed Anonymous”

The words in that description “gag,” “revenge,” “anonymous” are key to an understanding of the intent and purpose of the product.

The Seller’s Guarantee[2]

The seller allegedly promises that the purchaser/sender will remain “guaranteed anonymous,” that Poop Senders will “NOT” let the recipient know who sent the package, and even offers a cash payment option to avoid tracing the purchase. In that same section Poop Senders acknowledges that the product they will send will be “a healthy heap of some of the nastiest, stinkiest, fresh poop packages that anyone has ever seen.” The seller finishes with the statement, “We will never tell.” Well, both Poop Senders and their clients are in for a big surprise!

ONLY COWARDS DO IT ANONYMOUSLY

The Seller’s Reasons for Sending their Product[3]

The seller lists at least ten (10) reasons for sending their product:

  1. For your ex
  2. Neighbors pet crapping on your lawn
  3. For your mean boss
  4. For a salesperson or mechanic that ripped you off
  5. A Last minute gift for someone who has everything
  6. A gag gift
  7. For that rich gloating friend, knock them down a peg
  8. To the teacher that gave your son/daughter a poor grade
  9. Some one left you a negative review or feedback
  10. You just don’t like them

At least eight (8) out of the ten (10) reasons for sending the seller’s product are obviously with the intent to punish, intimidate, offend, alarm, or otherwise annoy the recipient; in other words, at least eight (8) out of ten (10) reasons published by the seller are for the ostensible purpose of harassing the recipient.

The seller publishes on their website testimonials that are obviously meant to emphasize the adverse intent of the product. Examples of some of the statements made include:[4]

  • “This is a gift that every asshole neighbor should get.”
  • “I sent one to my jackass brother in law and the whole family found out about it and they are all teasing him. He doesn’t know who it came from. He’s so pissed off its great.”
  • ‘[I] have already sent out 3 “poop packages” and the shit is just starting to fly.”

The published “testimonials” published on the seller’s website clearly prove that the seller is aware of the intentions of the individuals purchasing their product and clearly uses that information as a motivation for purchasing the product, that is, for the purpose of punishing, intimidating, offending, alarming, or otherwise annoying the recipient.

The fact that the seller emphasizes the value of anonymity in perpetrating the harassment is further proof of the seller’s intent to facilitate the commission of the criminal behavior by the purchaser, and not only facilitates the commission of the unlawful and criminal acts but explicitly encourages the commission of the unlawful and criminal acts.

The seller uses anonymity or the guarantee of anonymity to further promote the sale and purchase of their product, thus accomplishing the purpose of selling their product by encouraging unlawful and asocial behavior in persons who may be prone to such behavior but would avoid the behavior out of a fear of social shame if found out; the promise of anonymity claims to remove the risk of shame, and so removes a powerful deterrent to asocial and unlawful conduct, thus encouraging, promoting, and facilitating such conduct.

The price ranges from 1 quart of cow dung for $17.95 + $9.95 S/H to $249.95 + 19.95 S/H for a 5-lb special package. The package sent to the Coeymans recipients are believed to be 1 quart cow dung packages ($17.95 + $9.95).

Criminals at the Computer.

The seller’s FAQs further confirm their encouragement of anonymity as well as the offensive nature of the product they offer:

“Does it have to be anonymous?
“Yes. We guarantee it. Now if you want to wait about a week after ordering your package and call or e-mail that special someone and ask them if they just got a special package that is up to you, but rest assured we will never tell. Want to be extra careful? Pay with our cash option where you mail in the order form (or just number) and payment.”

“Is it real poop?
“Only the mad scientist that packs this stuff in the back room knows for sure and he wouldn’t tell us, but we do know this, it really smells bad back there, he is mixing up shit, and he does visit the local dairy farm and zoo about twice a week. (We also don’t want the delivery company to actually know what kind of shit they’re delivering.) We can assure you that it looks nasty and really stinks. It will get the point across to your intended victim.”

The seller provides legal advice, although they are not attorneys, as to the legality of their operations and practices.

“Is this legal?
“Yes and we’ve been in business since 2007. Sending an anonymous non-hazardous package through the US Postal Service is indeed legal. Please review our legal page for more information.

What do you expect them to tell you? That it’s illegal maybe? The statement in the above FAQ is misleading because it states a truth but in a misleading manner, because animal feces is hazardous both physically and psychologically, and the seller is sending such material through the United States Postal Service.


Synopsis of the Criminality of the Act

Poop Senders and their Customers misuse the USPS in the Commission of Criminal Acts.

The vendor, Poop Senders, is misinforming the public by stating that what they and their customers are engaging in is legal. It is NOT. Poop Senders clearly and explicitly states that their product is intended to annoy, offend, irritate, disgust, intimidate the recipient of the product. Poop Senders provides examples of situations in which customers can use their product for the purpose of “revenge.” Testimonials are provided which clearly and explicitly state that the purpose underlying purchase of the product was to annoy, intimidate, disgust, or offend the recipient. Poop Senders literally guarantees the effect of disgust, offensiveness, annoyance, intimidation. Anonymity is offered to prevent their customers from public shame and, ostensibly, to avoid prosecution — in other words, Poop Senders is conspiring to aid in concealing the commission of a crime, and so facilitate their customers in the commission of an unlawful act. Poop Senders, by their own statements, provides clear evidence that their product is intended to harass or to harm the recipient. Poop Senders uses the USPS to effect these purposes. These purposes are clearly described as harassment in the penal/criminal codes of both New York and Pennsylvania. Therefore, Poop Senders is using the USPS to perpetrate a criminal act; Poop Senders‘ customers are availing themselves of Poop Senders‘ guarantee of the desired effects and are therefore employing Poop Senders to commit an unlawful act, a criminal act in both New York and Pennsylvania — misdemeanor harassment —, a criminal act across state lines, an interstate criminal act, using the USPS as the effective vehicle to consummate the act. The Internet is being used as the medium over which the directions for the commission of the crime are being transmitted. Poop Senders is cooperating with the purchaser for payment for the commission of a criminal act.

OK, Law Enforcement, USPS Inspection Division, what is it you don’t understand?
SHIT IS HAZARDOUS, BIO-HAZARDOUS!!!


Moreover, despite the clear and conspicuous intent of the seller’s product and the content of the testimonials, which explicitly state the unlawful intent of the product, the seller provides a “disclaimer,” which does not eliminate the seller’s liability and would have no legal effect given the overwhelming evidence of the seller’s intent and the purchasers’ stated intended effects in the testimonials section of the website.

The Unlawful, Illegal, and Asocial Nature of the Product

We believe that the seller knowingly sells a product whose sole purpose and intent is to annoy, alarm, intimidate, offend the recipient of the product. That intent is clearly stated by the seller to be “revenge,” and the seller explicitly lists at least ten examples of situations in which the clear intent of sending the product is to punish, annoy, intimidate, offend, etc. the recipient for no objectively lawful purpose.

The contents of the package is animal feces, that is, an animal waste product that is potentially hazardous to the health and well-being not only of the recipient but also of the USPS employees handling or coming in contact with the package. The product is hazardous.

The postal service employees and the recipient are not provide with due notice of the nature of the contents and are therefore knowingly put at risk by both the seller/sender and the purchaser of the product.

The sending of hazardous or potentially hazardous material via the United States Postal Service is a priori unlawful and criminal, unless there is compliance with the relevant regulations. There is no evidence of any compliance whatsoever. The sending of hazardous or potentially hazardous material via the United States Postal Service with the clear intention of committing a crime is egregiously and aggravatingly criminal.

Given the clear and explicit statements of the seller on their website, the product’s primary intention is to annoy, intimidate, offend, or otherwise elicit an adverse reaction in the recipient; the seller guarantees that effect in order to encourage the purchaser to purchase the seller’s product for the ostensible purpose of annoying, offending, intimidating, or, as stated in the seller’s published material, as “revenge.” The purchaser purchases the seller’s product with the intent of eliciting the guaranteed effects.

The seller further entraps the potential purchaser by ensuring anonymity.

The seller states they they “ship only to [sic] the Continental United States.” The seller ships via the USPS across state lines, that is, engages in interstate commerce of hazardous or potentially hazardous materials. In the present case, the seller shipped across state borders, that is, from a location in Pennsylvania to locations in New York state.

The Criminal Codes of New York State and the State of Pennsylvania

Both New York and Pennsylvania have in their Criminal Codes provisions describing the crime of harassment.

The New York State criminal code, NY Penal L § 240.30, describes the crime of misdemeanor aggravated harassment as

“240.30 Aggravated harassment in the second degree.

A person is guilty of aggravated harassment in the second degree when, with intent to harass, annoy, threaten or alarm another person, he or she:
she:
Either (a) communicates with a person, anonymously or otherwise, by telephone, by telegraph, or by mail, or by transmitting or delivering any other form of written communication, in a manner likely to cause annoyance or alarm; or

(b) causes a communication to be initiated by mechanical or electronic means or otherwise with a person, anonymously or otherwise, by telephone, by telegraph, or by mail, or by transmitting or delivering any other form of written communication, in a manner likely to cause annoyance or alarm.

The Pennsylvania criminal code, Title 18, § 2709. Harassment.

(a) Offense defined.–A person commits the crime of harassment when, with intent to harass, annoy or alarm another, the person:
(3) engages in a course of conduct or repeatedly commits acts which serve no legitimate purpose;
(4) communicates to or about such other person any lewd, lascivious, threatening or obscene words, language, drawings or caricatures;
(5) communicates repeatedly in an anonymous manner;

The seller and the purchaser of the seller’s product have perpetrated and committed or have caused to be perpetrated or committed, or are accessories to the perpetration or commission of misdemeanor harassment under the criminal statutes of both New York and Pennsylvania.

The Primary Suspects

As in any investigation, an investigator must take into consideration motive, motivation, purpose, intent, knowledge, pattern, previous conduct, etc. and form a list of persons who would be most likely to perpetrate the unlawful acts.

Given the contentious conduct of the Comeback Team candidates and their close association and alliances with the so-called Friends of Coeymans principals, we feel that the following individuals are and should be considered primary suspects in the present situation:

The Whole Community Knows Who is Behind This Atrocity!

Boomer

Nathan P. Boomer (Friends of Coeymans)
212 Biechman Road
Ravena, NY 12046

Hagen

Christopher J. Hagen (Friends of Coeymans)
32 Lindskoog Road
Alcove, NY 12007

LaQuire

Jeffrey Laquire (Friends of Coeymans)
11 Albright Court
Ravena, NY 12143

Collins

Zachary Collins (Comeback Team)
898 Route 143
[Coeymans Hollow]
Ravena, NY 12143

Lefevre

Brendan Lefevre (Comeback Team)
250 Buschendorf Road
[Coeymans Hollow, Parent’s Basement]
Ravena, New York 12143

McHugh

George D. McHugh (Comeback Team)
100 Lawson Lake Road
Feura Bush, NY 12067

The tactics and publications of the principals, organizers, and administrators of the Friends of Coeymans, serve to evidence that the purchase and sending of the packages in question is not something that can be easily or otherwise ruled out, since such conduct would be easily presumed from the group’s paste and ongoing practices and tactics. Such harassment would be completely in the character and repertoire of the group given their pattern of harassment, bullying, disruption, degradation, and annoyance of persons, whom they have targeted.

And NO! The Comeback Team does not have a mandate from the “People;” they have only the votes of their supporters. That’s all. After the pre-election antics and the performances of the Coeymans Clowns, the so-called Friends of Coeymans, most of the People stayed safely home; the beasts, the Fiends of Coeymans were out, and a few stalwart citizens defied the neonazis and made their way to the polls, only to be harassed afterwards. Let’s admit the truth!

Given the close association and the support derived by the so-called Comeback Team, that is, the candidates in the most recent local elections, George McHugh, Zachary Collins, and Brendan Lefevre, their knowledge of and concealment of the unlawful conduct of the primary suspects cannot be ruled out.

Law Enforcement Investigation of the Criminal Activities

The Coeymans Police Department has been notified, and the victims who received the offending packages at Coeymans Town Hall have turned over the packages received at Coeymans Town Hall to the Coeymans Police for investigation.

Have the Coeymans Police Interviewed the Friends of Coeymans or the Comeback Team?

Given the current state of facts in the Town of Coeymans, we expect that the Coeymans Police have called at least the primary suspects in for questioning; furthermore, we expect that in the interest of efficient police work, the members of the Comeback Team have been interviewed and questioned as to their knowledge of any facts relevant to the unlawful acts.

We expect that any interviews or interrogations have been duly documented for the record as part of the investigation process.

The Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares, as the chief law-enforcement officer in the County of Albany, must be informed and an investigation initiated through his office.

The Allegheny District Attorney, Stephen A. Zappala, Jr., should be notified and his office requested to collaborate with the office of the Albany County DA, in the investigation of the seller’s activities in Pennsylvania. The offices of Albany County and Allegheny County DA must collaborate and cooperate in a joint effort to identify, apprehend, and prosecute the offenders in this case.

The United States Postal Service Inspection Divisions responsible for and competent in Albany County (NY) and Allegheny County (PA) must be notified and requested to assist in the investigation of the unlawful conduct in this case. The Coeymans Police Department must be proactive in requesting the assistance of the United States Postal Service Inspection Division.

The perpetrators, both the seller and the purchaser(s) of the product(s), must be charged with various counts of criminal activity including but not limited to, misdemeanor harassment under the criminal codes of New York and Pennsylvania, violations of interstate commerce, violations of the USPS regulations regarding the use of the mail (1) to send hazardous or dangerous materials and (2) the use of the United States Postal Service and the mail in the commission of a crime, endangerment of the health and safety of not only the recipients of the packages but also of the USPS employees handling the packages or coming in contact with the packages.

THAT’S WHAT YOU ARE, SICKO-S!

Coeymans Only Gets Sicker; Criminal Perps Being Investigated

Editor’s Note: Just an update: We’re on the trail and investigating this obscene incident, and are tracking the Coeymans Police Department’s handling of it. The Coeymans Police Department has proved itself incompetent and inept in a number of past cases, and has a reputation for being a troupe of clowns that have succeeded only in shaming Coeymans. Here’s a little challenge for them: Let’s see who solves this case sooner. Will it be Smalbany (very likely) or the Coeymans Police Department (very unlikely), who brings the criminals to justice? (Hint: Smalbany is already making progress in the case. Where’s First Sergeant Contento on this?)

Coeymans Police Investigator, Investigating.


It Appears that Some Coeymans Residents are Mailing Family Members to Other Coeymans Residents.

A Coeymans Resident is making a pubic statement about his family tree and is having a Pennsylvania-based company send examples of his family tree to other Coeymans residents. The problem is: All turds look alike and we can’t tell whether the turds in the mail are the sender’s mother, father, sister, brother, or a more distant cousin.

A Local Coeymans Resident Giving Birth.

Yes, dear readers, some mother in the Town of Coeymans has experienced the joy of motherhood and has asked us to post a picture of the bundle of joy that she’s sharing with some Coeymans residents.

WE DEMAND THAT SUPERVISOR-ELECT GEORGE McHUGH, COUNCILMEN-ELECT COLLINS AND LEFEVRE, AND LEGISLATOR-ELECT GEORGE LANGDON MAKE PUBLIC STATEMENTS DENOUNCING THE CRIMINALS INVOLVED IN SENDING OFFENSIVE PACKAGES! TO DO ANYTHING LESS THAN MAKE A PUBLIC DENOUNCEMENT AND APOLOGY WILL BE TANTAMOUNT TO ADMITTING INVOLVEMENT AND SUPPORT FOR SUCH MORONIC & CRIMINAL CONDUCT.

Because we think that George McHugh and his “Comeback Team,” and the Friends of Coeymans (Laquire, Boomer, Hagen) know very well who’s behind this malicious mischief.

We call upon Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares and Allegheny Co. (PA) DA Stephen A. Zappala, Jr. to launch an immediate investigation into this incredible example of obscene harassment of at least 5 local Coeymans residents!!!

We call upon New York State Attorney General  Letitia James to join with Pennsylvania State Attorney General Josh Shapiro to investigate the illicit and criminal business activities of the perp company selling the crap!

We call upon the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the FBI, to investigate the perpetration of this interstate commercial crime.

The USPS Office of the Inspector General, Postal Inspectors, has been notified and Smalbany is awaiting contact with a local investigator. [Editor’s Note: There is already a file opened on this case with the USPS Postal Inspector, Boston Division (responsible for this area). If you have received a package or have information to share, you can call 1.207.871.8587, and speak to agent “Emily.”]

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What the happy and very relieved mother does not know is that Smalbany is now investigating her. You see, she’s been sharing little bits of herself, her own little product, via the United States Postal Service and First Class Mail. What she may not realize is she is committing a number of crimes and Smalbany will find her and her little bundle of joy and SHAME THEM.

Furthermore, Smalbany will urge the United States Postal Service Inspector to prosecute for abuse of the postal service. Smalbany will also demand that the United States Attorneys for the District of New York and the District of Pennsylvania investigate and prosecute the perps for violations of interstate trade and postal regulations.

Smalbany has already obtained the USPS tracking information and has verified the sender. That information is being used in our continuing investigation.

The idiots don’t realize that this package seals their fates.

And to be complete, Smalbany will assist the recipients of any packages in filing formal complaints of misdemeanor harassment against the persons ordering the packages. The misdemeanor complaints will be filed with state and local law enforcement, and, because of the nature of the interstate commerce offences, with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, given the fact that the shipper can be identified.

Since the shipper can be identified, and given the criminal nature of the offences, and given the shipper’s own claims for their product, which clearly support the harassment intent of the product, the shipper will be required under subpoena power or by court order to produce their order records and other business records, which will be used to identify the person ordering the product and providing the shipping information. Once that is done, well, somebody’s going to jail. Smalbany has already notified the owners of the business name A.S. Enterprises that their business name is being fraudulently misused.

State attorneys general in New York and Pennsylvania will be notified directly of the company’s activities and urged to investigate and prosecute.

We’d like to thank the Coeymans residents who brought this example of sick-community to our attention. We’d also like to thank the Coeymans resident, who has made this VERY BIG mistake for confirming all of our statements regarding Coeymans as a sick-community. Once again, you have played right into our hands. Congrats, stupids!

Sicko-s come in threes!

 

 

 

 

Crandall Interview: Segment 2

We published Segment 1 of the Crandall Interview special feature on Tuesday, October 22, 2019. As our readers could see for themselves, the Crandall team has either accomplished or is accomplishing everything McHugh’s mob promises the people in their campaign material. We have to seriously ask the questions: (1) Is McHugh that ignorant of what’s going on in Coeymans to be promising what’s already been done by the Crandall team, or (2) Is McHugh that stupid to believe that the people and voters of Coeymans are that in the dark to believe his many disgusting lies? Segment 2 goes even further to show that McHugh is a fraud, a crook, and worse, a liar.


In Segment 1 of the Crandall Interview feature (Segment 1), we asked Mr Crandall about his accomplishments, significant benefits created by his administration for the people of Coeymans, his vision for the next 2 years, his plans for small business in Coeymans, and the incentives his administration is offering to small businesses in Coeymans and coming to Coeymans. It is clear that Mr Crandall and his team, despite the adversity of powerful opponents in Coeymans, has done much for the people of Coeymans.


Editor’s Comment: We may have had harsh words but we call the shots as we see them. Mr Crandall has proved himself to be honest, caring, and very, very competent as a leader. We can’t allow ourselves to be misled by those who were for Mr Crandall when he was dancing to their tune, and now that they are finding he’s not a pushover, they [McHugh, Carver Laraway, Biers, and Lafarge] are trying to get in through the backdoor, call it anal entry, through George McHugh (we’re not calling George McHugh an a**hole even if he is one). For Crandall, as we all know, it was never about him or about money in his pocket; it’s a different story when we’re talking about McHugh, Carver Laraway, and their bunch. With them it’s all about money and what they can soak Coeymans for.

The comment by the Community Observer about McHugh, LaFarge, and Carver Laraway not wanting clean air, and the money involved set the theme for Segment 2.

Mr Crandall:- “Oh, yeah. There’s big money to be made between Carver [LaFarge and McHugh]…They’re going to make money. But how much money does a person need? How greedy do you have to be? And at what expense? At the expense of our children’s and our grandchildren’s lungs?”

McHugh, Carver, Biers didn’t get their way. Too bad!


In Segment 2 of the Crandall Interview, we asked Mr Crandall how he will work with the Village of Ravena to beautify Main Street, his plans for building up tourism and hospitality venues in Coeymans, his relationship with George McHugh, why George McHugh would be bad for Coeymans, the McHugh-Carver Laraway-Vinciguerra connection, the Billy Biers warehouse project, Carver Laraway’s whining, how many new businesses Crandall has brought to Coeymans, and turncoat Daniel Baker’s backstabbing. These are some real eye-openers so after you read these excerpts, you may want to read the complete segment for the details at: Crandall Interview-Segment 2.

Click here to read the entire Segment 2 Transcript: Crandall Interview-Segment 2.

Here are the highlight excerpts from Segment 2 of the Crandall Interview:

Smalbany:- How do you intend to work with the Village of Ravena to beautify Main Street, and make it welcoming to small businesses like arts and crafts, specialty shops, etc?

This could be Main Street, Ravena, New York, if Mr Crandall has his way.

Mr. Crandall:-    OK. The main way we can help with that is by keeping the roads paved, by keeping the potholes filled. Making sure things like the water runs right, making sure the sewers are repaired. Making sure the tax rate is kept low. Make sure that we offer these incentives for businesses. Now, one thing I want to mention is that we are working with three solar [energy] companies right now. One is a pretty large one, Hecate. And they want to build a solar farm behind the school, over by the old Stalker farm, and they’re going to be using about 380 acres…once they get their plant built, that will be on the assessment rolls, and help to lower taxes…We’re trying to get them to offer the Town people a deal that they can tap into their electric, and possibly lower their electrical bill…There are two smaller companies trying to build in the Hollow, and Hecate is also looking at our old land fill site. It’s possible that they may also be able to put part of a solar farm there, also, on top of the old landfill site that we kept, and which will help make use of that property because you really can’t use it for anything else. So, that’s another thing we’re working on.

“Out in the Hollow…I want to keep it centralized around the Highway Department, we’re talking about starting a small recycling center. Much like what Westerlo has…opening it up maybe two or three days a week…and it would provide another service for the townspeople.”

Mr. Crandall:- The devil’s in the details. The idea’s there right now.

Smalbany:- Back to Mr. McHugh’s relationship with you and the Town: In 2017-18, your relationship with George McHugh was cooperative, if not friendly. What happened to change that relationship, that attitude of cooperation?

Mr. Crandall:-    What do I think changed that? Money! Money. There’s somehow, I can’t prove it, but with all that we went through with LaFarge and stopping the garbage coming in there, and with Mr. Laraway coming up so hard against us, against the Clean Air Law, and with LaFarge and Mr. Laraway putting up so much money against us…he spent $13,000 just on the primaries…that’s a vast amount of money for a small town…to be spent on politics. So there’s money to be made here. And there’s a lot of it.

“And they’re really opposed to the Clean Air Law. The main reason I think they’re running is because of the Clean Air Law.

“And I think Mr. Laraway feels that we haven’t given him enough tax breaks down there. But we have given him P.I.L.O.T.s[1] How many P.I.L.O.T.s does the man need? How many tax breaks does he need?

“Like I say: You gotta pay your fair share.”

Smalbany:- Apart from that, why would George Mchugh be bad for Coeymans? As if what you’ve said were not enough!

Mr. Crandall:-    George McHugh would be bad for Coeymans just because of, mainly because of his character. I’m no saint. I’ve had my own problems with the Court system. But with the Courts system, you’re held to such a high standard, it’s absolutely ridiculous. And I’m not an attorney, so I did make mistakes. I’ll grant you that. But he’s an attorney! And he [McHugh] was under two ethics investigations involving money. Mine never involved money; his involved money. He was under an ethics investigation for having his [personal] property surveyed along with Town property, and the Town paying for it. And his own Town Board, which was controlled by Republicans, had him under an ethics investigation for that. And then, he was attorney for the state Wagering Board, and he went before them, he had a private client, and he represented him before the state Racing and Wagering Board, while he was their [the Racing and Wagering Board’s] attorney! He was under another ethics investigation by the state Attorney General for that. They kind of eased him out the door after that. Now, there’s two reasons: ethics.

George McHugh = Ethics Violations = Corruption.

How many times…I know I shouldn’t say this, but I’m gonna…How many times can a man be married? I mean, twice, maybe? But four times? I mean, there’s something wrong with character here. And character matters.

And another thing: He didn’t run for office again. OK, there are probably a lot of reasons…But then, he comes up and he outright lies, and uses the deaths of over 3,000 people who died instantly in a horrible, horrible thing that happened on 9/11 in New York City. He tries to use that for political gain! That tells me about a man’s character, and I feel he has no character.

I just feel he [George McHugh] lies with impunity to get whatever…to get his way, whatever he wants. And I don’t understand people like that. I just don’t. Because I’m not a liar.

Community Observer’s Comment:-   You have Lincoln’s quote on the wall.

[Editor’s Note: The Observer is referring to the quote: “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.”]

Mr. Crandall:-    Yes. I have Lincoln’s quote on the wall.

Smalbany:- Without speculating, what is your opinion about the McHugh, Laraway, Vinciguerra connection?

Mr. Crandall:-    It’s common knowledge that Vinciguerra has been George McHugh’s friend for years. They’ve worked together in business dealings for years…I just feel that they are way too cozy. And he’s [referring to Vinciguerra] supposed to be the editor [read: publisher] of an independent, unbiased newspaper [referring to the Ravena News Herald]? I don’t feel that the News Herald is unbiased at all. How can they be? Carver Laraway is buying all kinds of ads in it, George McHugh’s buying ads in it. He [Vinciguerra, publisher of the RNH] is renting the building from George McHugh.

Vinciguerra of Capital Region Independent Media LLC, and publisher of the Ravena News Herald. Anything but “Independent” and a perversion of what the News Herald once was. Vinciguerra is McHugh’s and Carver Laraway’s media sock puppet.

“He [George McHugh] has so many business connections how can he possibly serve as Supervisor of this Town? He’ll have to recuse himself from every other meeting, if not every meeting of the Town Board.

Smalbany:- What are the reasons for withdrawal of the warehouse application by Billy Biers?

Mr. Crandall:-    “The real reason that Billy Bier’s application went down the tubes is because the [New York State] Department of Environmental Conservation [DEC] denied it for many, many reasons. Mr. Biers contacted me. He asked me if there’s any way I can help? Would I write a letter in support, so that they would reopen it and look at it again? I wrote a letter to DEC asking them to please give Mr. Biers’ project another look; we would really appreciate it if they would; we would really like this business to come into the Town.

Billy Biers’ Warehouse Project REJECTED by DEC, not by Town!
Biers’ lies publicly at Town Board meeting.

I sent that letter. For Mr. Biers to get up and say anything other than what we really did for him is an outright lie.

I’ve never called a Planning Board member in my life and asked for anything from them for anybody. I’ve never approached them. The Zoning Board, either. Or the Assessment Board. And I never will. Those are unethical things. Would Mr. McHugh violate that? I don’t know.

[Editor’s Note: We have copies of the DEC letter to Mr. Biers, Mr. Bier’s letter withdrawing the application, and Mr. Crandall’s letter of support to the DEC. We will publish those later this week.]

Smalbany:- In a recent video posted by the group calling itself Friends of Coeymans, Mr. Carver Laraway addressed the board saying that he asked for the board’s support and got none. What is he talking about?

Mr. Crandall:-    I have no idea. He might be talking about the last P.I.L.O.T. he wanted for a company… They refurbish old parts and metal pieces, mainly parts that connect sewer systems, they refurbish stuff like that. But we have a negotiator, a Mr. Larry Farbstein. He worked for the [New York State] Real Property Tax Services for 32 years. He’s a former lawyer; he doesn’t practice law any more, he just negotiates contracts for P.I.L.O.T.s, full time, from Long Island to Saint Lawrence County. Throughout the whole state. He does it for municipalities. We hired that man. He did our P.I.L.O.T. for LaFarge with the Town. He handles all of our P.I.L.O.T.s, and I told him [Laraway], “Mr. Farbstein will be calling you.” Well, Mr. Farbstein called him and asked him for certain information he needed by law in order to fairly do a P.I.L.O.T., and they wouldn’t give it to him. It was financial. They have to tell, they have to give him all the financial information, the financial records, that he needs. They refused to give it to him. And that’s where it left off.

P.I.L.O.T. Denied because of unwillingness to disclose financial information.

“I can only assume that because we didn’t just carte blanche roll over for him and sign off on Mr. Laraway’s P.I.L.O.T., that that’s what he’s talking about.

“Why didn’t he talk about the 11 new businesses that have come in in the last three-and-a-half years since I’ve been Supervisor? Would those businesses have come here if the Town Board was hostile to business? I don’t think so.

[Editor’s Note: Click New Businesses Brought to Coeymans to see the list of new businesses during Crandall’s term. 11 of those businesses are in the Port of Coeymans or the Coeymans Industrial Park. New Businesses Brought to Coeymans]

“He [Laraway] had other P.I.L.O.T.s that were negotiated by the Town. I mean, how many tax breaks does one man need? How greedy to you have to be? It’s time to pay your fair share.

“Now you look at all the business he’s gotten…for the Tappan Zee Bridge, that was Cuomo’s baby, and all the other business he’s gotten, nobody can tell me…and the small fines that he paid. Anybody see a bridge go over a river, a creek so fast? As that bridge went across. So, he’s got a hook in DEC or in the state departments somewhere, with Cuomo. But these companies like the Port of Coeymans and LaFarge, they figure it into their…to do business, how much it will cost them for a certain fine. And he’s [Carver Laraway] paid relatively small fines. I think he paid $55,000 for one fine, which was a major violation, which the Town got back, and we were able to use that money to stop…There were three three, four houses on Stone House Hill that were running raw sewerage into the [Coeymans] Creek. That was going on when George McHugh was supervisor.

“There were four houses there, ever since they were built, and he [McHugh] never did anything to stop that. Well, I’m not having that! So, we used that $55,000 – and I think we put another $15,000 to it – too hook them in to the sewer system, to stop that raw sewerage from going into the Creek. So, Mr. Laraway can thank me for that, because now he owns the property down there where the boats are, the Marina, and now they won’t be smelling human feces coming into the Creek.

“But did he mention that? No!

“Everything he said at the meeting was just a show, trying to get people to not vote for Mr. Crandall.

Smalbany:- But he was being videoed by the Friends of Coeymans…

Mr. Crandall:-    Right. They were hoping that I would go off and start yelling and…but that’s not me…I’m not doing that…But if they expect to get a rise out of me out there, they’re not getting it. Public comment is public comment. I don’t care who you are or what you say…I don’t care who you are, it’s public comment: Say it! It’s a free country.

Mr. Crandall:-    Can I go back to the Clean Air Law?

Smalbany:- Sure. I wish you would.

Mr. Crandall:-    While we were working on this Clean Air Law, Dan Baker and Kenny Burns, sat right here, and Baker worked for LaFarge for 15-20 years, and he told us that they’re fudging the numbers on their, on the numbers when they’re being checked. When the monitors are being checked by DEC. He told us that DEC calls them, and then immediately the plant stops burning coal and goes right on natural gas so they can doctor the numbers, so the emissions numbers come down. What the hell kind of emissions control is that? And this is when Mr. Baker also, when someone sent him a picture when there was a blow-off up there, and all this black smoke came out, right across from the school. It was awful. I remember seeing the picture. He sent that to us on his cellphone. This was when he was for the Clean Air Law. He spoke for it, he was [for it], everything was going fine. And then, all of a sudden, Mr. McHugh, decides, announces he’s running for office in March, and that’s when Dan Baker changed.

Mr. Crandall:-    But Mr. Baker, all of a sudden…we would sit here and talk about our kids and grandkids, and how we don’t want them breathing this stuff…And he was all set to vote for the Clean Air Act [read: Law]. I know he was. He told us he was. And then some time in January-February, that must be when he got word that McHugh was running, he started marching, my speculation is McHugh was calling the shots then, and he was marching to the McHugh beat.

And another thing: Kenny Burns, he told us he interviewed over 300 people not one person was against the Clean Air Law, yet when it came to the vote, he voted against it.

Smalbany:- Now this one is what I read to you before. Do you recall? Mr. McHugh’s accomplishments with the Village Sewer and Water project just before he left office (2001). Between leaving office (2001) and 2003, he all of a sudden has a project over on the Blaisdell farm, and now he’s got water and sewerage there. [Referring to Mr. Dolan] You were actually mentioned in one of those …

Mr. Dolan:  I was at some point..the town and village got together and started a sewer and a water commission, two separate entities…I recall that there was talk of annexation, and there was a lawsuit after that, and I know the Coeymans Fire Department was upset about it, because they would lose that portion of territory.

Smalbany:- So this was – I’m not asking you to speculate – what was going on behind the scenes but at this time was the annexation being discussed?

Community Observer’s Comment:-   It was being discussed. Because he used my famous letter to Sol Greenberg to get on the good side of the Mayor (former Ravena Mayor, John Bruno), to get the mayor to say OK, so what do you have property in, to get the water. He always used people. [inaudible comments]

[Editor’s Notes: The annexation was in the works during McHugh’s single term as Coeymans Town Supervisor. The annexation was finalized some time in 2003, and McHugh’s properties were hooked into Village water and sewerage. McHugh then proceeded with development of single family homes and their sale, apparently through one of his wives, who was handling the real estate sales at the time.

Remember this honey of a land deal. McHugh took good care of himself.

Is George McHugh Avoiding Us?

Is Supervisor Candidate McHugh Avoiding us? Maybe hiding?

Rumor is that Coeymans Supervisor Candidate George McHugh is disguising himself to avoid being interviewed. Please let us know if you spot him!

As most of the local Albany County and Greene County residents and voters are aware, we recently contacted both Mr Phil Crandall, the incumbent Town of Coeymans Supervisor, and Mr George McHugh, a local lawyer seeking election to replace Mr Crandall. We invited both Mr Crandall and Mr McHugh to be interviewed by us and we published on this blog some of the questions we would be asking.

They want to “take back Coeymans.”

Our posts announcing our interest in interviewing the two candidates are part of the series: “If they want to be elected, we’re going to grill them!” (Click on these links to read the articles: Mr CrandallMr McHugh)

To his credit, Mr Crandall responded almost immediately accepting the invitation to be interviewed. We will be asking him for a date and time in the first two weeks of October, some time later this week.

Although we contacted Mr McHugh at about the same time we contacted Mr Crandall with the same request, and published the questions we want answered, Mr McHugh has so far refused to respond as to whether he will accept our invitation to be interviewed prior to the elections.

We followed up today with an email to Mr McHugh’s law offices, again attaching some of the questions for his information, and sent the following message:

Dear Mr McHugh:

We contacted you earlier this month to invite you to be interviewed as a candidate for Town of Coeymans Supervisor.
As of this date, we have not heard back from you, and we’d like to reach out to you a second time to invite you to be interviewed by us for the information of our many readers and the local community.
We would be very pleased to schedule your interview at any time between Wednesday, October 2 – Wednesday, October 16, 2019, between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. 
The purpose of the interview, of course, will be to vet facts we already have as well as to explore other relevant issues concerning your fitness to be Coeymans Town Supervisor.
For your convenience, we are attaching a list of questions, which we expect to ask at the time of interview. We do reserve the right to substitute or to add additional questions at the time of interview.
Please be advised that should you choose not to respond or otherwise decline interview, we will proceed with the information we have.
Thank you very much for your attention. We look forward to sitting down with you face-to-face to better inform the voting community.
Once we receive your response, we will provide you with the name of an independent, non-partisan interviewer, who will conduct the interview.
Is Mr McHugh avoiding us, attempting to avoid answering some burning questions about his past? Is Mr McHugh afraid that he’ll have his feet to the fire when we start asking questions about his fitness to be Coeymans Town Supervisor?

We are trying to be fair to the candidates and are offering them both the chance to come clean on some very important issues. Mr Crandall has come forward and agreed to be interviewed.
Will Mr McHugh continue to attempt to hide?

Sorry, George, you can run but you can’t hide!
There are some questions we’d like to ask you.

 

We Love Captain Weasel Whacker!!!

Republished with Permission from the Greene County Weasels site.

If you’re a weasel and you see this guy… Be afraid. Be VERY afraid!!! You can run for office but you can’t hide!

Hi, neighbors!

This is CPT Weasel Whacker. I just want to say that we’re out there whack’n those weasels, and you can bet they’re runnin’ scared.

This site was created to bring you the best quality journalistic reporting, and some well-researched opinion about our local politics and politicians. We’ll woo the wonderful and whack the weasels. Our slogan, if you haven’t noticed is:

Find’em, Expose’m, Whack’em. Integrity before Politics.

And that goes for all of us: No more alphabet soup voting for the Rs and the Ds. The Republican and the Democratic parties have degenerated and have consistently let us down. They lie to us, deceive us, take us for granted, and screw the life-blood out of us and everything we earn. They can’t come up with good, honest candidates so they give us weasels. If you don’t get weasels, they deprive you of your right to choose by not even running a candidate to oppose the other party.

Unless we do something and do something damned quick, we’ll be a dictatorship, a one-party system, a Big Brother State before you know it!

Well, neighbors, it’s time to think Declaration of Independence [Editor’s Note: … and Bill of Rights, how about that thing we call a Constitution?], and go Independent. Why do you think the Republicans and the Democrats are always coming to the Independence Party to ensure their candidate gets elected? Because they know their party [ Republican and Democrat] sheeple can’t do it alone; they need some credibility and integrity and they get that from the Independence Party.

Conservatives are half-baked Republicans; Democratic Party is a shame to their name, they’re failures and crooks like Cuomo and his Downstate Mob who elect Cuomo-the-Homo. You need to go independent of the two has-been parties: Be independent. Be an Independent!

I want to ask you to click the button to follow this blog; you’ll get email updates every time a new post goes up, and you’ll be notified when a friend or neighbor posts a comment.

You can share information or send us a tip by writing to us at captain.weasel.wacker@gmail.com. Anything you send me by email will be strictly confidential. I’ll never post any information until it’s been checked and verified. And your name or email will never be shared or made public without your written permission. You’re safe with us!

Stay tuned! We’ll be whacking another weasel shortly!

CPT Weasel Whacker


The Weasels site is really very well done; some beautiful images of Greene County. Cpt Whacker is going for the gold…or the Greene. We wish him well! We’ve added a couple of notes (in grey) and some emphasis to the original Greene County Weasels message from Captain Weasel Whacker but nothing else. He seems to be doing a great job and doesn’t need any help from us. But they do need YOUR help. Please support the Greene County Weasel Wackers and their site. Maybe we can make one county in New York a better place to live … Albany County is a lost cause! The Editor Smalbany

If they want to be elected, we’re going to grill them! Re: George McHugh.

Incumbent Town of Coeymans Supervisor, Phil Crandall, has accepted our invitation to be interviewed, we are now negotiating a date and time for the interview.

In his email response to our proposed interviewer, Mr Crandall writes (September 3, 2019):


“Thank you for reaching out to me in regards to an interview. I am happy to schedule that and should be able to get back to you after the holiday with my exact availability and some possible dates. Thank you again”


We are now calling on Mr George McHugh, a candidate expecting to run against Mr Crandall this November, and hoping to take the office of Town Supervisor, and to take control of the Coeymans Town Council.

Our Reaction.

McHugh is campaigning behind an ambiguous campaign slogan, “Take Back Our Town,” which makes us wonder who is taking back whose town, and what’s going to be left for small businesses and for any remaining residents, after the so-called Friends of Coeymans all get their share of the post-election booty.

But in all fairness, we want Mr McHugh to have a fair opportunity to clarify some issues and to show that his commitment to transparency is no bullshit. Back to  our invitation to Mr McHugh. Here are our proposed questions for Mr McHugh:

Dance, Georgie! Dance for us, Georgie!

Proposed Interview Questions
George McHugh
Candidate, Town of Coeymans Supervisor

  1. You were elected to be Town of Coeymans Supervisor back in 2001, served one term, and then did not run for a second term. Why was that?
  2. The question of the Blaisdell Farm property and your housing project on that property has been the subject of a number of inquiries, particularly the fact that the property was annexed by the Village of Ravena at about the time you were Coeymans Town Supervisor, or shortly after you left office. Would you please comment on the circumstances of that annexation and how you benefited from it?
  3. You were appointed to a federal administrative law judgeship. It would appear that you are no longer serving in that capacity. Can you tell us what happened to the judgeship?
  4. Your campaign slogan is “Take Back Our Town,” from whom do you expect to take it back?
  5. Who are the Friends of Coeymans? Do they have names?
  6. According to our information, you serve in several capacities as a paid consultant or employee of the Carver Companies. Will you be resigning those positions if you are elected?
  7. How will your cozy relationships with Carver Laraway and the Carver group of companies affect your fitness to be Supervisor of the Town of Coeymans?
  8. You were outspoken in your opposition to the Town of Coeymans clean air law which purported to ensure good air and environmentally friendly air quality but you campaign on a promise to improve quality of life in Coeymans. That law was passed. How does opposition to clean air advocate quality of life for Coeymans residents?
  9. In terms of improvement of quality of life, and other than opposing clean air, what other proposals do you have for QoL improvements?
  10. In you campaign ads you suggest that you will do a number of things if elected. But our investigations show that you would not have the authority to make good on those promises, since most, if not all of those promises are state level powers. What do you have to say about that?
  11. As former owner of the Ravena News Herald, can you please comment on your relationship with Mark Vinciguerra and the Ravena News Herald, now owned by V. as part of his Capital Region Independent Media?
  12. Do you currently hold an ownership or financial interest in the Ravena News Herald?
  13. What do you feel you can offer Coeymans that current Town Supervisor Crandall cannot?
  14. What would be your major criticisms of Mr. Crandall and the current Coeymans Town Board?
  15. Given the questions regarding the role of the Coeymans Police Department in the death of 19-year old Riley Kern: What would your plan be for the Town of Coeymans Police Department.
  16. Hypothetically, if you were Town Supervisor, how would you good faith in responding to the many questions in the Riley Kern alleged wrongful death case?
  17. There is evidence that acting Coeymans Police Chief Mr. Daniel Contento and Coeymans police officer Ian Foard had handled the Riley Kern investigation not only unprofessionally but professionally negligently. We are aware that you have been in contact and communicating with Mrs Kern about her son’s death. If elected, what would you as Town of Coeymans Supervisor, in cooperation with the Town Board that would be controlled by your group, plan to do to support Emily Kern’s efforts to get recognition for her son, and to make amends for the circumstances of his death?
  18. What would be your five priority TO DO items for immediate action upon taking office, if you were elected Town of Coeymans Supervisor?
  19. What would be your five priority TO UNDO items for immediate action upon taking office, if you were to be elected Town of Coeymans Supervisor in 2019?
  20. Apart from any new industrial developments in the works, and given the small business situation in the Town of Coeymans, what would your plan be to encourage and to support small business creation and development in the Town of Coeymans, particularly in and around Ravena, the Hamlet of Coeymans, and the beautiful waterfront available to the Town and its residents and small businesses?
  21. Will you be continuing your law practice if elected to be Coeymans Town Supervisor? If so, would you continue to provide legal services to Carver Laraway and the Carver Companies?

*****

Well, Mr McHugh and his running mates are running on a number of positions, one of them is transparency. Well, in our opinion, if transparency is such a big concern for McHugh and his group, then he won’t have much of a problem with our questions. Or will he? We’ll find out and when we do, you’ll know, too. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, please read our recent McHugh-related articles:

Russian Mafia in Our Back Yards?

Please don’t Mug Me! Just Pot Me!

The Russians are Coming!!!

To McHugh or Not to McHugh.

It’s your community, too, and we want you to have a say in all of this. That’s why we’re asking our readers to send us their questions for consideration. If your questions are selected, we’ll include them in the interview of Mr McHugh.

As we go forward with the interviews, we’ll post names and questions for the candidates we choose to interview, and ask for your inputs.

Of course, we’ll keep you updated and informed on how the candidates respond, and we’ll share their answers with our readers.

Please send your questions to rcs.confidential@gmail.com. You can also leave a public comment on this blog with your questions.

Stupid is as Stupid Does: Freakasaurus in our front yards!

Yup, The Inbreeding is Showing: Stupid is as Stupid Does

Please don’t waste our time with your stupid attempts to demonstrate your stupidity.

You are a Freakasaurus and the Smalbany Blog reports on freakasaurs; we do not publish freakasaurian bullshit.[1]

This is what to look for. Sometimes that actually look and act almost human.

As our more intelligent readers can appreciate, being a pubic forum and allowing public comment we get all kinds of visitors. Add to that the fact that we publish our email so that it’s easier for readers and informants to contact us. As you might expect, there are plenty of freaks who will abuse any and all opportunities.

Smalbany deals only in verifiable facts. Sometimes we get them by simply requesting the information, other times we have to use the Freedom of Information Laws to get the information. We interview informants to make certain they are real people and that they have real information. Only then do we go ahead with our investigations and finally, we publish what we find.


But, as we mentioned above, there are plenty of freaks out there and we’d like to share just one example of one who tried to pass off what the freak thought would be bait. It failed miserably. But that’s not to say that we didn’t give the freakasaurus a chance to come through, as you’ll read below.

Note that in the interest of protecting the innocent, we have redacted any information that would have the potential of identifying the persons concerned. That is our standing policy until the facts are confirmed: at Smalbany, you are innocent until the facts indicate your guilt.

Here’s the original message from a freakasaurus calling him/herself “small[redacted]@gmail.com”:

Someone from [redacted] and  [redacted]’s inner circle is paying to have the criminal records of them published as new on the internet and she is going to make flyers that [redacted] and [redacted] are the publishers of this website. She is actively getting the DEC involved to pursuit prosecution and getting the ATF to get a search warrant and pursue prosecution. Just a heads up and GOOD LUCK!!!

Freakasaurus actually expected us to bite at the bait. Instead we responded:

“Thank you very much for your tip; we appreciated hearing from you and would like to comment below.

“First of all, if you have information about a possible or a real conspiracy to harm Mr and Mrs [redacted], then you have a moral duty to inform them of your suspicions or of the facts you might have in that regard. We gather from your message that you are at least familiar with them and would know how to contact them with the information or “Heads up!” as you call it.

To leave them vulnerable to some scoundrel without letting them know the facts is immoral; we hope you will take appropriate steps.

“Second, let me clarify one fact: Neither Mr or Mrs [redacted] have any connection whatsoever with this site. They certainly do not own or write for Smalbany nor to they contribute to any of the content. So let’s put that tidbit to rest now and for ever.

“Thirdly, the information you provide anonymously is too vague to be of any use to us. If you have names, we need names. If you have facts, we need those facts. If you are familiar with this site, and it would appear you are, you certainly know that we don’t just publish speculation or common gossip. We need names and facts, and we will do our own fact-finding and verification.

“If you are really interested in getting the word out about some local dumbass with an axe to grind, please share details with us that we can verify.

“You write that “[S]he is actively getting the DEC involved to pursuit prosecution and getting the ATF to get a search warrant and pursue prosecution,” so we at least can guess that the villain in this story is a woman. That’s a start.

“Please provide us with details, what “inner circle” is it that you are referring to, what “criminal records,” how would the DEC (Department of Environmental Conservation???) be involved in such a plot, and Why? the ATF? You obviously know more than you are sharing, and we would be grateful if you would share more.

“First things first: If you feel that this is a genuine conspiracy to harm the [redacted]s, you MUST inform them even if it has to be anonymously. We cannot do that for you unless we have more to go on.

“Thanks once again and we hope to hear back from you soon. Please note that we do not publish the names of informants and any information provided is subject to verification or editing. Apart from the facts and the names of the individuals plotting this alleged conspiracy, you will remain a confidential informant.”

We think that was a very decent response, don’t you? And we’ve given Freakasaurus several days to get back to us but s/he has not done so. We have to consider the “tip” to be bogus.

Given the fact that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is probably one of the most corrupt departments in New York State government apart from the Executive Chambers (Office of the Governor) and the New York State Assembly and Senate, we wouldn’t wonder for a New York minute that the DEC could be involved in something so shadowy, so nefarious, so stupid as to get involved in a silly-ass conspiracy. But the ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms)?!?! Freakasaurus has a very vivid, if not pathological imagination.

ATF agents “protecting” us.

The ATF has to be as big a joke as the DEC!!! According to the ATF website,

ATF is a law enforcement agency in the United States’ Department of Justice that protects our communities from violent criminals, criminal organizations, the illegal use and trafficking of firearms, the illegal use and storage of explosives, acts of arson and bombings, acts of terrorism, and the illegal diversion of alcohol and tobacco products.”  [emphasis provided] [Source: https://www.atf.gov/, last accesed on July 22, 2019)

We have the Russian mafia in our front yards and the ATF is worried about “diversion of alcohol and tobacco products.”

Now that had to be one of the biggest jokes since Laurel and Hardy were dancing across the Silver Screen! So, the ATF is going to protect our communities “from violent criminals, criminal organizations, and illegal use and trafficking of firearms…and the illegal diversion of alcohol and tobacco products.” Well, that’s certainly what we all needed, another law enforcement agency to “protect” us. Yeah, they’re going to protect us from “criminals, criminal organizations…terrorism…and illegal diversion of alcohol and tobacco products,” while they’re building pot factories in our back yard that are very probably funded by the Russian mob and a Russian mobster!!! We have the Russian mafia in our front yards and the ATF is worried about “diversion of alcohol and tobacco products.” We have the Russian mafia in our back yards and the DEC is ignoring the contaminants and pollution being caused by Carver Companies and their dumping. You simply cannot make this stuff up, people! Either the DEC and the ATF have gone nutz or Freakasaurus thinks we all came down with the last shower. Maybe both.

Sgt Joe Friday and Officer Bill Gannon (Dragnet) rescue a Coeymans local from a DEC trap.

“How’d such shit-for-brains ever get beyond the evolutionary reject line?”

Given the amount of time and energy we spend getting information, responding to informants, following up on tips, and investigating, not to mention the writing and layout of the articles, we a justifiably pissed when some reptilian-brained freak wastes our reading time with such crap. But unfortunately this area is lousy with such remarkably stupid types that it would be hopeless to wish them to become extinct. The place would be a cemetery, a boneyard.

So, just look around yourself when you’re next in Shop’n Save, PriceChopper, a local yard sale, or even in one of our local churches and think to yourself, “How’d such shit-for-brains ever get beyond the evolutionary reject line?” But some did and they’re breeding locally.

[1] A freakasaurus is a freak of nature, a creature that did not have the good sense to go extinct 60 million years ago, and continues to walk the earth with only a primitive reptilian brain. They are caprophages (syn. scatophage, “shit-eaters”) and thrive in their local habitat. The only known habitats for the surviving mutant species are in the Albany County region — particularly in the city of Albany, Albany County Offices and state capitol offices —Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk region, and Northeastern corner of Greene County (Town of New Baltimore), while the brooding facility is maintained at the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District elementary, middle, and high schools.

Yes, Freakasaurus does exist. It was first used on StarTrek Voyager, Series 2 (1996):
