The Buzz is Out: Bill “Moose” Misuraca will Challenge John “Black Mamba” Bruno in the Ravena Mayoral Race!!

Please don’t forget to participate in the Smalbany Vote for Ravena Mayor Poll at the end of this article.


The Coeymans Republican Party Has a Candidate to
Oppose Ravena Mayor John T. Bruno

Bill “Moose” Misuraca has been tapped to challenge the Village of Ravena mayor John T. Bruno on March 18th! Great Choice!

Off with their heads!

Off with their heads in Ravena Village Hall!

Venerable Coeymans Republican Committee chairwoman Barbara Cumm has published the Public Notice under the provisions of Section 15 of the New York State Election Law notifying all registered Republicans in the Village of Ravena that the Republican Caucus for the Village of Ravena to nominate candidates for the office of Mayor of Ravena and two village trustees will be held at the Ravena Firehouse at 116 Main Street, Ravena, New York on January 28, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. The Village of Ravena Elections will be held on Tuesday, Mary 18, 2014.

Content Update_Smalbany Blog_BW

The word on the street is that Chairwoman Cumm has tapped William “Moose” Misuraca to be the Republican candidate for Mayor of Ravena. Moose Misuraca, as many of you already know is the same Moose Misuraca who runs the Halfway House Tavern, a village institution for almost 100 years, in Ravena-Coeymans, and is the grandson of patriarch Frank Nunziato. Moose is very much in touch with the local community and can take an ass-kicking and still remain level-headed and even-handed. We know this for a fact because we have blasted Moose on a number of occasions and he’s kept his cool. Moose is a better choice when we consider his ability to be down-to-earth and a real people person. These are very positive character traits when compared to the explosive and offensive personality of mayor John T. Bruno.

All that said, and although we have our doubts when it comes to the technical parts of mayoring, and some of Moose’s wife Jenna’s choice of friends and associations (a well-meaning relationship with the somewhat shady RCS Sports Association, a coziness with the notorious Cathy and Jerry Deluca that makes many people cringe, some of the groups she’s supported in the past (Fiends of RCS etc.), Moose is promising as a candidate given the numbers in our most recent polls, clearly leading Ron Houghtaling by at least a 50% margin, and leaving John Bruno in the mummy dust.. But will Moose be able to handle the pressure of his wife’s, Jena’s friends and still be a neutral public servant and not become a puppet mayor? Will he isolate Ravena village hall and make it a private club for the special interests and questionable friends, to whom  his wife Jena appears to be attracted, addicted? Or wil both Moose and Jena surprise the hell out of everyone and rise above the raw sewerage of special interests and corruption in Ravena-Coeymans. Sure, he’ll be able to call in consultants and advisors, if necessary, but it does take some skill knowing when you don’t know. And it takes big balls and raw courage to resist mere popularity and to champion real principles. Running even a small municipality like Ravena can be a challenge, especially when you’re dragging some heavy baggage and some dirty laundry along with you. And we all know from painful past experience when a heavy-handed bullshitter tries to run things: that’s the Bruno experience for the downward spiral Ravena has lived through since Bruno’s dictatorship has run its evil course for more than a quarter century. Bruno’s old and so is his style. Ravena needs change, positive change. Maybe Bill .” Moose” Misuraca, despite some of his and Jena’s questionable [= rumored] connections and friends might be that change. Maybe not. Can we handle the risk?

Our Advice to Barbara Cumm and to John Bruno

Our Advice to John Bruno, Marty Case and Rocco Persico!

Scandalous Greed: Not Satisfied with Being Elected to Public Office, Coeymans Board Members Now Want to Grab More Power!

shark attack great white

Our advice to the greedy power-hungry gabbers is this: You were elected to serve the residents and community of Coeymans, not to run a political party! Just concentrate all of your energies on your new responsibilities before your start grabbing more! Stop acting like a bunch of children and conduct the business of governing the Town of Coeymans in a fair and balanced way. You have enough to deal with right under your noses: Deal with it! Chairwoman Cumm played a significant role in putting you where you are. Maybe some gratitude is in order! Dontcha think?

Mr Langdon: Get real! Get to work, and stop drooling over a commttee chairmanship you have neither the right nor the experience to covet!

Unconfirmed reports and the word on the street is that several Coeymans Republicans—Ungrateful bastards and power-hungry wolves in sheepskins?— have visited Coeymans Republican Committee Chairperson Barbara Cumm, and have asked her to step down. Apparently, the misguided group is not pleased with the way she’s been serving the Republican party in Coeymans—even though she’s successfully navigated the Coeymans Republican party to win a number of elections— and successfully steered the party from the whacko direction its seems to want take under the imprudent direction of some power-hungry newbies. Cumm managed to get them elected and that’s how they allegedly treat her. Aren’t they satisfied with being voted into public office? They want more? What is in store for the voters now that they’re in office. To be fair, Barbara Cumm is a native of Ravena, she was raised and grew up in this very area. Barbara Cumm loves Ravena-Coeymans and wants to see it thrive. We feel that the direction the village has taken and the attitude of some persons [Mr Flach, Mr Burns (!), Mr Masti, Mr Langdon] is far from moral and verges on the unethical. We’d like to remind you gang of four that public office is characterized by SERVICE not power-grabbing.

It is our avowed principle that no one in public office should also serve as a party chairperson (Right? Tom Dolan!); it opens too many doors to corruption and power-grabbing, and all too soon the notion of SERVICE has lost its meaning. We have noted Mr Kenneth Burns’ imprudent remark about “father-figures.” Burns is on our monitoring list already. The rest of the Flach team had better tow the mark; all eyes are on you guys.

If the rumor is true that Mr Flach, Mr Langdon, Mr Masti, and Mr Burns have shown their colors and are ungrateful sods, Chrisitans that they claim to be, we don’t like what we hear. Don’t forget for one second that Ms Cumm served for many years and should not simply be discarded nor should she be vilified or disrespected by anyone: least of all local Republicans and the very one’s she’s guided into the offices they now occupy. If this blog has in any way made the impression that we do not respect Ms Cumm and her loyalty to her hometown, the principles of her party, her dignity and her accomplishments, we’d like to correct that impression right now.

Coeymans Shark Attack!!! Hungry Coeymans Board Members Visit Chairworman

Coeymans Shark Attack!!!
Hungry Coeymans Board Members Visit Chairworman

Our recommendation in the past has been, that if and when Ms Cumm decides to resign,  to make her Coeymans Republican Committee Chairperson emerita in recognition of her many years of service but also to rely on her experience, wisdom and savvy to ensure that the Coeymans Republican party is the party of ethics and solid values, ralther than self-service and power-grabbing. Unlike John Bruno, who is a dinosaur, Barbara Cumm is a servant leader. They’re from different dimensions or universes: Bruno is 30 years behind the times, Cumm, it seems, is reality oriented and future visioned. Where Bruno doesn’t have the sense of reality that would tell him to have the dignity to resign and hand over the baton to someone who can bring the dying village of Ravena into the 21st century, Barbara Cumm has shown wisdom in putting together a Republican party slate that overturned the old-boy corruption and put new faces on the board. (We can only hope that the new faces are not just masks hiding the same old business-as-usual thug-types.)

Our advice: Leave Barbara Cumm alone and respect her alleged choice for Ravena Mayor, Bill Moose Misuraca. Why? You might ask? Well, Bill knows the people, knows their needs; he listens to the buzz. He’s got a business right in the middle of town, is very well aware that if the village slides any further down the slippery slope created by the Brunos, the Delucas, the Warners and the others in the in-crowd, the Incest Club, he loses his livelihood and possibly a business that has a long history in Ravena—almost a century. But CAUTION: We don’t want to create a Coeymanazi haven, a nest of insiders in Ravena village hall that is worse than what’s there already. We need the Service Squad.

We were hoping for someone like Ron Houghtaling who has a wealth of government and administrative experience, and who has the brains to impress. Maybe that’s why he wasn’t called on to seek the nomination. Maybe his own history of unsavory connections and the fact that he doesn’t have the Misuraca allure is his own baggage, his own dirty laundry. While he’s got a working brain and will think for himself, and make experienced decisions, maybe the downside outweighs all of that.

chopping-cashWe also think that the present village of Ravena offices in their present location would make a fine location for the Coeymans Town Hall, tooWill Moose Misuraca work closely with the Town of Coeymans to re-establish the old Ravena-Coeymans with one administration rather than the present wasteful two administrations running one community?Will Moose Misuraca  would have the negotiating skills and the experience to approach the town government to make the move. That brings up the subject of consolidating the hamlet of Coeymans and the village of Ravena. Think of the good sense that makes. One administration, one court, one budget. No more fingerpointing and bickering. The only ones who want separate governments are the ones who stand to profit by the inefficiency: the Bruno crowd. Let’s start thinking in the 21st century, people, and let’s move in the right direction. Even if the village and the hamlet are not consolidated (as they once were a number of years ago), the two administrations would be better off in one location and the present village hall would be just the place.

Think in terms of saving hundreds of thousands of dollars every year right around the corner and what that could mean to Ravena-Coeymans and to residents. It makes good economic sense but the Bruno crowd would fight it tooth and claw because they’d never have a chance at taking advantage of their captive audience again.

Now think of getting rid of the Coeymans police department and all of those leeches. Think about saving at least $500,000 a year and still having a local sheriff department presence right down the street. An then there’s also the NYS police who are in the area. What could you do with that $500,000 in savings each year while financing the Sheriff Department satellite station in Ravena-Coeymans. Money back in your pocket people. Why are you fighting it? Here’s why: You’re being lied to by the leeches and their idiot friends. The Coeymans p.d. leeches don’t want to lose a good thing; where could they go to suck as much blood and play cops and robbers at a community’s expense like the Coeymans p.d. does?

Coeymans Police Department and Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca:

It must be getting a bit hot in the basement of Coeymans town hall, though. Kerry Thompson get’s pulled out by the Sheriff in an eleventh hour effort to distance himself from the Coeymans p.d. and avoid certain embarassment. Now we hear it’s getting too hot for Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca who’s retiring (actually resigning) from the Coeymans p.d. Does the Coeymans town hall know that Deluca was hired illegally by his friend Gregory Darlington? That should affect his “retirement”, shouldn’t it? Before they start signing any checks they’d better audit the books and check the records and the law; we wouldn’t want the New York State Comptroller’s Office and the Civil Service Department to go behind closed doors with the New York State Attorney General and find that there’s fraud in the Coeymans P.D., would we?

Dirty-Hands Jerry Resigns; Is Darlington Next?

Dirty-Hands Jerry Resigns; Is Darlington Next?

Are Jerry Deluca and Gregory Darlington going to try to run and hide before the shit hits the fan? Do they really think that if they abandon ship like rats that they’ll be beyond the reach of the law or retribution to the public they’ve screwed so royally? Is the Coeymans taxpayer going to be satisfied paying the leeches their pensions in view of their years of abuse, corruption, and hypocrisy?

"Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca" Resigns

“Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca Resigns

It was difficult to keep from vomiting when reading the page one article “Happy birthday, Ravena!” (Ravena News Herald, January 23, 2014) and its sickening portrayal of Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca. Town councilman Kenneth Burns revealed a side of himself that made us doubt both his sanity and his connection with the community when he characterized the cop-bully Deluca as a “father figure to the community.” Either Burns was high on something or otherwise intoxicated to describe Deluca as a “father figure” to the community Deluca has deceived, taken advantage of, lied to, and bullied for years. Maybe Mr Burns has a different idea of a father figure; maybe Mr Burns means an abusive father with no ethics or morals. A “father-figure” who is a hyppocrite.

Our Message to Coeymans town councilman Mr Kenneth Burns: It’s that kind of stupid remark that gets you noticed. You’ve been noticed, Mr Burns.

But then, when saying good riddance to bad rubbish, maybe the Coeymans town council members are just so happy and relieved to get rid of the bully Deluca that they figure he’ll still be roaming the streets with time on his hands (when he should be doing time), so why rock the boat. Deluca was always in trouble while they had reasonable control over him. What now? Deluca is allegedly involved as a defendant in several lawsuits pending so he’ll be kept busy…one would hope.

We Recommend: That the New York State Comptroller, the Office of the NYS Attorney General, and the New York State Civil Service Department carefully audit and investigate Gerald Deluca’s employement record to ensure that his employment by the Coeymans Police Department was in accordance with the law. We have reason to believe that he may have been hired by Gregory Darlington illegally. That should certainly raise some eyebrows at state level. The Town of Coeymans had better do its own investigation and pronto!

Deluca Supersize Greed:

Lady-Kiss-Hips animationThe greed of the Deluca pair is about as super-sized as they are. Ravena News Herald sockpuppet Bryan Rowzee reports in that same article that Ravena mummy mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno was accompanied by “Ravena Health and Fitness Manager and Centennial Celebration Committee chair Cathy Deluca” to tout Ravena’s 100-year anniversary of incorporation. With Bruno and Deluca working on it it’ll probably be featured at the Babcock Funeral Home more as a wake or memorial service than anything else! But Cathy Deluca will do anything—and we do mean anything—to get noticed (How could you not notice her?). Cathy’s a real steal-the-show dog-and-pony act, that’s for certain. But now that she’s been appointed to run her little money-pit playpen, the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center, that’s not enough for the gluttonous queen of grab-it! Now she’s finagled her way to be the Centennial Committee chair. Look: She’s getting $30,000 + benefits to run the Fitness Center for the village of Ravena. The Fitness Center is in its first year of existence and isn’t doing all that well—call us cynical, but it’s a money pit (your money, Ravena taxpayers), it’s losing the membership battle, it can’t keep employees, and it just doesn’t have the numbers. Cathy Deluca has already managed two previous fitness centers to failure, and we think she’s doing the same thing to the Ravena Fitness Center. She can’t even manage a bunch of fatties in tights let alone a business operation!

old blond stripper smSo don’t you Ravena taxpayers think she should keep her bottom at the Fitness Center to make certain the public’s money is working for the public? No, that’s not the Deluca way! The public’s money in the Deluca world works for Deluca! Our advice to Ravena mummy mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno is to keep Cathy D. in the Fitness Center and make her make it work. It’s YOUR duty and responsibility Mr Bruno, to the people of Ravena. You have to make your bad ideas and bad choices work! You have to take responsibility Mr Bruno! Do it now! Make Cathy Deluca put all her energy in making that fiasco, illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center work for the people and taxpayers of Ravena. Take responsibility for once, at least in the last year of being mayor of Ravena! And don’t forget the pending lawsuits that won’t go away even if Cathy Deluca resigns…OOPS! we meant “retire.” There are actually three (3) pending lawsuits involving Cathy Deluca and the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. Some of the claims involve criminal charges and also involve the Coeymans Police Department on charges of obstruction of justice etc. So when you hear the names Cathy and Jerry Deluca, think greed, hypocrisy, corruption, and lawsuit.

Again, this is one of our concerns with Bill “Moose” Misuraca’s prospective bid for the mayorship of Ravena: What is his, Bill’s  and his wife’s, Jena’s, relationship with the Deluca pair and how does that play into the agenda? Will their coziness with the Coeymanazi pair and all of their corrupt activities in Ravena-Coeymans taint any potential Misuraca administration? That’s an important consideration in our view.

We’d like to know Bill Misuraca’s position on the Ravena Health and Fitness Center.

We’d also like to ask if the Misuracas, the Ravena Halfway House Tavern received Cathy Deluca’s recent letter to selected Main Street businesses to attend the January 30th Centennial Planning Meeting for the “revitalization” of Main Street, Ravena. (Our most recent intelligence informs us that the Misuraca;s, Jordan’s Barber Shorp, Hoots Bowling Alley (Houghtaling), Stolz insurance, Citgo, Miller’s Automotive, all Main Street businesses, and others were not included in that mailing. Why not?)

In short: We want to know, we want to be convinced that if Bill “Moose” Misuraca is elected by a fair process that Bill will be mayor and not Jena or her cronies. We want to be convinced that if Bill “Moose” Misurac is elected to be mayor of the village of Ravena, that the same insider group or, worse still, more insider groups will take over village hall. If Bill “Moose” Misuraca is elected to be mayor, we want to be conviced Bill will be mayor; not Jena Misurac, not the RCS Sports Association, not Matt Miller’s teachers union, and not the Cathy and Dirty-Hands Jerry pair. In short, we want a mayor not a Coeymanazi fortress.

So, a lot is happening since the upheavals and elections in November 2013. It’s happening in Coeymans and in New Baltimore because residents are sick of the backstabbing, the unfairness, the lying, the corruption, the intimidation and the retaliation. It’s time now to fumigate Ravena village hall and get rid of the cockroaches who have been ruining a lovely little village and killing it slowly and painfully.

Village of Ravena residents have two caucuses coming up at the end of January:

  • The Democratic Caucus to nominate candidates for Ravena mayor and two village trustees. They’ll probably kiss Bruno’s ass and nominate him and his two leeches, Marty Case and Rocco Persico. That will be the death knoll for Ravena (and for Bruno and his two leeches Case and Persico). Residents don’t want Bruno back or his leeches. Nominating them in the Democratic caucus will be a big mistake. But then, Coeymans Democratic Committee Chairman Tom Dolan could’t get himself elected, and he’s a dud from the start. We just have to keep an eye on whether he’ll manipulate his Choices clients, his social services recipients, etc. He’s played some shadey games with ballots in the past, and skunks don’t change their odor. The Democratic Caucus is on Monday, January 27, 2014, at 6:00 p.m. in the Ravena Fire House at 116 Main Street, Ravena (one of the few occupied buildings left on Main Street, thanks to the democrats on the village council!)
  • The Republican Caucus will meet on Tuesday,January 28, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. in the Ravena Fire House at 116 Main Street, Ravena. As we’ve already reported, Coeymans Republican Committee Chairperson Barbara Cumm expects to nominate Bill “Moose” Misuraca for the office of mayor of Ravena and two others for the 2 trustee seats. Ms Cumm appears to have weighed the pros-and-cons and we have to trust her wisdom. All Coeymans Republicans must attend the caucus and actively participate. Weighing all of the options, we recommend that Ravena Republicans support Ms Cumm’s choice and should support Bill “Moose” Misuraca for mayor of Ravena.
  • We have posted our options for mayor and village officers. If the Caucuses don’t see the wisdom in our selection, we will push for the residents of the village of Ravena to write them in on March 18. If they don’t get the political parties’ nominations to be candates, we and Ravena residents must run them as write-ins!

    An Example of a Write-in Vote It's that simple! Just print clearly and spell the names correctly!

Business as Usual or Change for the Better: Vote Now!


Village of Ravena Elections for mayor and two village council seats will be held on
Tuesday, March 18, 2014.
Why wait? At the end of this article you can vote for our candidates of choice for seats on the Ravena Village Council, or make your own recommendations. Help Save Ravena!

Our Worst Fears Were Confirmed:
Bruno, Case, and Persico Are Running Again!

Bruno, Case, Persico to Run Again!

Bruno, Case, Persico
to Run Again!

You Can Stop Them!

Tucked neatly away in the Ravena News Herald is the news we’ve all been waiting for…like the plague: Ravena mummy mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno, Martin “Marty the Loser” Case, and Rocco “Seatwarmer” Persico have the gall to run again for village of Ravena public office. They apparently haven’t done enough damage to the village of Ravena and want a second shot at it!

Incumbent Ravena Mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno and his monkeys in Ravena Village hall have done their best to put Ravena into bankruptcy in every conceivable way: Secret deals with CSX (and then making believe they fixed things by planting a couple of trees), problems with sewerage, defaulting on village bills, creation of an illegal and failing Ravena Health and Fitness Center, persecution of local youth and teens, violations of protected civil rights, suppression of free speech, crooked financial transactions with insiders, handing out jobs to favorites, abusing the community institutions, and the list could go on and on and on.

Ravena Needs Alternatives!

According to documents we’ve managed to get our hands on: The Notice of Democratic Caucus has gone out…that’s where the democrat candidates would normally be nominated…but the caucus is to be held at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, January 27, 2014 at the Ravena Fire House, 116 Main Street Ravena. But the candidate have already been selected, at least according to the last issue of the Ravena News Herald. The three incumbent monkeys—Bruno, Case and Persico— are running again. UNLESS Ravena democrats show up and speak out to nominate alternatives. Lord knows Ravena needs alternatives!


In the Meantime a New Warner-Deluca Scam

Bruno's Vixen

Have you heard? It must be election time! The Village of Ravena has recently sent out letters to “selected” “Main Street Property Owners” and “merchants” (Are there any left on Main Street?!?) but neglects other Ravena property owners and  residents having a stake in the future of the village of Ravena. The letter is inviting those selected property owners and “merchants” to attend a roundtable discussion and planning meeting to “revitalize” Main Street. What’s wrong with the rest of Ravena? You might well ask. But guess who are the contact persons for this “Centennial Committee”! Insiders, of course: Someone has put Cathy Deluca of Ravena Health and Fitness Center fame in as “Centennial Committee Chair,” and her sidekick, mayor Bruno’s “biatch”, Nancy Warner has been installed as a “Centennial Committee Member,” and sign the secret letter.

 When was this Centennial Committee established and with what village resolution? Who are the other members of the so-callled Centennial Committee, or is it just the dirty duette, Deluca and Warner?

Cathy Deluca Note the ARANY Sweater! (No Special Interests Here!)

Cathy Deluca
Note the ARANY Sweater!
(Probably wearing CSX panties, too!)

old blond stripper smIf you read this and suddently red flags go up and you have an anxiety attack, and feel overly suspicious, you really ought to. Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner are the very ones who met behind closed doors to secretly spend more than $40,000 of taxpayer money to buy used fitness equipement from another insider. They, Bruno and Warner (Deluca already was promised the job as director of the fitness center) harassed the RCS Community Library out of the space that was decided to accommodate the fitness center, and then allocated more than $105,000.00 of taxpayer money to fund the fitness center for the 2013-2014 budget year. In the meantime, Bruno and Warnerand their sockpuppets on the Ravena village council, Case, Bailey and Persico, went ahead and appointed Cathy Deluca as “director” of the fitness center paying her $30,000 in salary plus generous benfits. We believe the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, like two of Deluca’s other fitness businesses is a loser. Even before the fitness center opened, Cathy Deluca opened her big mouth and got the village of Ravena a couple of new lawsuits (Remarkably, this legal situation was reported in the Ravena News Herald!)!Ravena Mayor John Bruno and his monkeys Martin CaseWilliam Bailley, and Rocco Persico, also joined forces with Nancy Warner in persecuting Ravena-Coeymans youth and teens in the “Gazebo Fiasco,” again attracting another Notice of Claim and lawsuit for violation of protected rights and civil rights. Bruno and Warner ultimately forced the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activities Center to close its doors when they convinced insider Robert Fisk not to renew the Center’s lease. In shortl, they threw Ravena-Coeymans youth and teens out on the streets, screwed a local do-gooder, and created another distressed property on Ravena’s Main Street. 

Now they, the Insiders Club in Ravena Village Hall, want to reinvent themselves as the Ravena Centennial Committee, headed by two arch-villains Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner, to “rejuvenate” Main Street Ravena. They’re the very ones who made Mainstreet Ravena a ghost town! And who’s going to pay for this “rejuventation?” We predict that this is just another smoke-and-mirrors scam that will benefit only the Ravena Insiders Club and no one else. If you fall for it…

Bovine bimbos Deluca and Warner, the so-called Centennial Committee are even so arrogant that they ask “invitees” to R.S.V.P. by January 27, 2014 (the telephone number given in the letter to call to R.S.V.P.: 756-5544, the number to Cathy Deluca’s Playpen a.k.a. the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center!!!).

The Ravena Centennial Committee Mainstreet Revitalization farce will meet on Thursday, January 30, 2014, at 5:30 p.m. in the Ravena Village Courtroom. Please note also that the time, 5:30, on a Thursday has been selected because it will ensure that the fewest possible working people will be able to get to the farce. That’s one sure way of eliminating a good portion of the community. And these two trollettes are supposed to orchestrate a Centennial livestock show? Moo! To you, too, Deluca, Warner!

Ravena Centennial Committee Deluca & Warner

Ravena Centennial Committee
Deluca & Warner

We say any Centennial Celebration is a public affair from the planning to the execution. Any Ravena Main Street Rejuvenation is a public project and the public, not just a select group of property owners and merchants, selected by Guess Who!?! Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner! Any committee should be made up of public representatives not just Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner! How dare they make Ravena and its village Hall their private playpens! How dare mummy mayor John Bruno hand over Ravena to those two aging vixens to be their private sandbox. How dare Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner exclude thepublic from their little party…AGAIN!!! (Remember the Ravena Health and Fitness Club fiasco!) Those two middle-aged megalomaniacs need to be put in their proper place!

 It’s Official: CSX

We knew it! They're CSX!

We knew it! They’re CSX!
Official Confirmation by 2 RHFC Members.

Back to alternatives….

Anyone who has been following this blog and reading our articles knows that we know what’s going on in this region. We watch, listen, receive intelligence, and report to our readers what they won’t get in the local sockpuppet media like the Ravena News Herald, the Greene County News, the Daily Mail, the Albany Times Useless. and others (most notably of the Johnson Newspaper Corporation and Hearst Corp.).

Our most recent poll confirmed several very important facts: The John Bruno regime is nearing its shameful end, and the Coeymans Police Department’s days are numbered (is that why Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca is allegedly planning to retire at the end of the month, or is that just empty rumor? But why is he driving a RCS school bus?]

Coeymans Republican Party Chairperson Barbara Cumm has been sitting on her thumbs for too long and maybe the Republican Party should replace her before she does some real damage. We know the three flying monkeys are running again on the dem ticket but what are the Ravena Republicans doing all this time? We haven’t heard of any potential opponents to the Bruno mob from the Republican side. What’s the big secret? (We all can expect Tom Dolan to fall on his face again, as his past performance as a dem candidate and dem chairperson have been less than glorious.)

[Editor’s Note: We would recommend that the Republican Party name Barbara Cumm as Republican Party Chairperson emeritus, and get a real chairperson on board who will shake things up in Coeymans. So far Cumm has been dozing off and playing senile political games in the area. Retire Cumm and get someone with some cojones on board to clean up the Coeymans political scene. Stop playing a loser’s game!]

The Bruno mob seem to think they have the democrat ticket in the bag; the Republicans are quiet as mice. But we don’t care about labels like democrat or Republican; we care about what’s happening in the community, and the damage that the Ravena regime under Bruno and Warner have inflicted through their greed and nastiness. So we looked at the situation and looked at a couple of local figures who are honest and community-service minded residents who should be drafted to fill the seats in Ravena Village hall. Here’s your chance to vote in advance and let your voice be heard. The Bruno-Warner mob hates these choices, which makes them even more desirable. If Bruno and Warner hate you, you must be honest. Perhaps you’ll influence the outcomes in a positive way.

Vote below in each of the polls. It’s anonymous and you will be able to vote only once. Your vote counts here, too!
Once you vote in the polls below, click on “View Results” (bottom left corner of each poll) to see the overall results!

Are you a Dem or Rep, or Other?

Ronald K. Houghtaling Jr. for Mayor. A very experienced, articulate, former Coeymans town supervisor, who can make good thing happen! Mr Houghtaling knows his way around government and business. He also knows how dirty the local politics is and still keep his hands clean. Vote here for Mr Houghtaling for Ravena mayor.

Laszlo Polyak for Ravena Councilman. Mr Polyak is a local resident and property owner who has been an outspoken advocate in defense of RCS CSD students and local property owners’ issues, as well as a crusader for honest, accountable government. Mr Polyak’s credentials are impressive, too. The Coeymanazis hate him and have done everything they could to stymie his bids for public office in the past. Mr Polyak has an unparalleled knowledge of Ravena and the players, and their histories. If the Bruno mob  hate him and fear him so much, he belongs in Ravena village hall!. Vote here for Mr Polyak for Ravena village councilman.

Michael Fisher for Ravena Councilman. Mr Fisher is a local resident, parent, property owner and, if you’ve been awake through all of the hullabaloo about the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and the persecution of Ravena-Coeymans youth and teens at the hands of Bruno and Warner and the present village council, you’ll know that Mr Fisher is a self-less community-spirited individual. He serves on the Coeymans rescue squad and fire department and invested untold personal resources to get Ravena-Coeymans kids off the street, and into a safe, supervised recreation center. That all ended when Bruno and Warner did their worst to sabotage Fisher’s efforts and works, and the Coeymans police (Deluca and Darlington?) played their intimidation/retaliation games.

Bruce Roberts for Ravena Councilman. Mr Roberts already has experience on the Ravena village council but was unseated by insider action. He held the trusteeship now abused by Nancy Warner.

Finally, Vote Here to Make your Choices for Ravena Mayor Known!

Finally, Vote Here to Make your Choices for Village Council Seats Known!

(The percents in this poll show the voters’ first choice (highest percent), second popular choice, and third popular choice in descending order of percents. The percentages must add up to 100%.

Know What It Feels Like to Be BLED to DEATH?

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog now.

We have just acquired a copy of the so-called Supplemental Memorandum of Agreement between the Teachers Union a.k.a. the RCS Teachers Association and the RCS CSD and what we see in that document, submitted by the teachers union, is absolutely SCANDALOUS!

The Teachers Will Suck You Dry

If you vote YES! on the 2012-13 School Budget You’ll Know What it Feels Like to Be BLED TO DEATH!

Once you read this you will have to agree that the only way you can vote is NO! on the 2012-13 School Budget…and you’ll also have to agree that the teachers on the RCS Board of Education have to go!

You’ll Know Why When You Read This!

It’s all in the Supplemental Memorandum of Agreement offered by the teachers union and Matt Miller (remember him? the atheist teacher, also president of the RCS teachers union) and friends on April 17th, 2012. Before you misunderstand the document, it is a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) NOT a “contract,” and the terms of the agreement go into effect ONLY if the 2012-13 RCS School Budget is passed. So you must vote NO! to avoid being bled to death.

The teachers offer “a partial” = temporary “wage freeze” but subject to some pretty one-sided conditions (of course, the actual conditions were never made public for you to know!):

  1. According to the MOA, the Board must submit “a tax levy of 8.6%…or 6.8% based on efficiency measures that DO NOT NEGATIVELY IMPACT THE ASSOCIATION.” (#1 of the MOA). In other words, the teachers agree that you, the voters, can pay the 6.8%…everyone else can drop dead but the teachers association cannot be touched. Nice, right?
  2. The teachers’ 2010-2013 negotiated contract will be extended for two years, to 2015, with a 2.5% pay increase in each year of the extension. (#2 of the MOA).Wait a minute, this means the teachers get a raise when everyone else is cutting back! Now that’s a real sacrifice, voters!
  3. The teachers who initially do not receive the 2.5% per year pay increase will start to receive the 2.5% pay increase on February 1 [2013]  (#3 of the MOA).So, even those teachers who don’t initially get the pay increase get the pay increase on February 1st. Nice deal for the teachers! Pay me now, pay me later–win-win for the teachers! Do you like that, voters?
  4. On July 1, 2012, all members of the teachers union would still receive all increases in the 2010-13 contract. Another win-win for the teachers.
  5. There would be NO losses of full or part-time positions for teachers union members (#5 of the MOA). In other words, ALL teaching jobs would be safe, cuts would have to come from somewhere else but not from teachers! That’s really a sacrifice…ALL teachers’ jobs are safe, get raises, to hell with you, voter!
  6. Any savings from the Supplemental Agreement would be used only to offset tax levy but NOT to increase reserve funds or for any other purpose (#6 of the MOA). Only the teachers benefit, in other words.
  7. Number 7 of the MOA really gets us sick: “three sick days can be converted to personal days…above and beyond” (adding time off to the already generous time off without excuse)! Nice! Teachers get more paid  time off for themselves!

    What You’ll Be Screaming If the School Budget Passes

But the Teacher is Your Friend!

The key to stopping this ridiculous arrangement is to vote NO! on May 15th. If the budget is defeated these self-serving, shameless teachers’ demands will NOT go into effect! There is NO sacrifice of any kind in this Agreement, it’s a LOAN agreement and you, the voters, will have to pay for it plus interest!

 That’s the TRUTH behind your wonderful teachers! They are out for themselves and this proves it and you have to thank Matt Miller, David Dykeman, and Bridget Engelhardt of the RCS teachers association for cutting your throats, and the traitor teachers, teachers’ spouses and retired teachers (Engel, Whalen, O’Connor, Traver) on the Board of Education for pushing this monstrous deal through.

Loaded Dice:
Teachers Win=You Lose

If you vote NO! the teachers lose nothing and will continue according to the negotiated contract for 2010-2013.

We are including a scanned copy of the Supplemental Memorandum of Agreement for your reading “pleasure,” and so that you can see for yourself that everything we report on this issue is true and factual. Just click here to read the actual document: RCS CSD -Supplemental Memorandum of Agreement.

On May 15th

By the way, did you know that Howard ENGEL, a candidate for re-election to the RCS CSD Board of Education is a teacher married to a teacher, and is head of the teachers union at Averill Park? Did you know that candidate for election to the RCS CSD Board of Education Edward “Teddy” Reville is married to Engel’s sister? Sunilda Swan is also a former teacher. A. Whalen is a retired Teacher. Sitting board member James Latter’s wife is a math teacher at the RCS middle school. Particularly disturbing is the Board of Education meeting of November 1 at which residents call for the immediate resignation of sitting Board member Latter for breach of confidentiality and endangerment of a student, RCS Sports Association misuse of funds, questions regarding the RCS Sports Association’s non-profit status and 990 tax returns (non filed). O’Connor is a teacher. An you still don’t think the teachers are running the RCS BoE? In the name of fair play, get the teachers off the Board of Education!

Readers Corner: A Readers’ Contribution…

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog now.

A Reader Writes…

Mr Laszlo Polyak of Ravena submitted this article:

I guess I will be the advocate for the children, and RCS  High School seniors, who have commented on this blog and try to present it in a  way that both sides can understand.  First off, I have a business teaching degree so I have my bias too.  Second, there are good teachers all around not just greedy ones. [Editor’s Note: While I am still adamant that the seniors who commented in the way they commented were uncivil and inappropriate, I would be the last to overgeneralize and condemn an entire group, teachers or students.]

Let’s start from some carved in stone facts that are beyond the control of this community.  Two million people have moved out of NY in the last 10 years.  Locally this means there are 2,000 fewer people in our school district.  Fewer students means fewer teachers needed.  Example – sixty kids in third grade in any district. – six third- grade teachers.  Obviously at least of 3 teachers have to go.  That is beyond our control. There’s also the loss of two million dollars so there is even less money to support the situation. Less money from government sources (state and federal). Thank you! Governor Cuomo! The state legislators and the governor of the Empire State don’t seem to give a damn whether your schools sink or float! They just push it on to local governments and pass the ole buck! [Editor’s Note: Mr Polyak makes some good points here.]

The recent concert at the high school the principal said it best — everyone will be receiving some information and facts at home.  I really urge you all to read it carefully.  Do your homework and make a reasonable, informed decision when you vote.

If you want one fine example of a truly great teacher, you have Mr Wamsley.  As a music teacher he has done an excellent job with the kids in band and drama.  He entertains us with high school plays that are Broadway  quality.   He has been here only a few years.  There was talk when budget cuts were needed to let him go. The public stood up and backed him. [Editor’s Note: Music and language/literature are foundations of our culture. I would agree with Mr Polyak that a gifted teacher in the humanities is a must in any school.]

Perhaps I can explain some of the issues this way.  There are residents on fixed incomes  such as social security and retirement pensions.  Perhaps your grandma or grandpa.  They have not received an increase in their check for two years straight.  And yet their taxes have gone up and up and up.  Of course, they want the best education for their grandchildren, great grandchildren and children [But do they have to forego medicine or nutritious food to make that possible? There’s a moral dilemma here. The ed.].  But they are down to eating cat food.  How do you expect them to afford a 6.8% increase? Some of them, simply frustrated, are a portion of the two million who have left New York state. 

Take a walk down Main Street.  Again you’ll see fewer people there, fewer businesses than you did last year: this means less of a tax base and more of a burden on those still here.  Then we have three big industries.  plastics, railroad and the cement company.  The reason why we have this short fall is because they went to court and got their property values dropped 10 yrs ago and will do it again. [Editor’s Note: Excellent point! They’re paying almost no tax and yet you jump up and down with glee when they make a pitiable gift or donation! See thru the smokescreen!]  And they can afford to go to court.  Or just close their doors and move out.

Have you forgotten that we are in a depression, and I will call it that. We are in a depression its over the place.  I wrote a letter to the blogger questioning their motives about the kids blogs. I told the blogger that these are children/young adults. And they are trying to express their opinions.  In a week some people will go and vote Yes! and some will vote No!  And we will cross that bridge when we get there.  But we need to remind ourselves that it is OK to be conservative, it is OK to be liberal.  And we need to express ourselves without bitterness, frustration and hatred. The young people tried but sadly, their teachers were laughing and not explain to them the truth  The kids don’t lose  we do!  [Editor’s Note: I disagree. The young people were cheated of a very valuable lesson and experience; the teachers lost nothing. The community lost something, too!]  Are we name calling just because we have different viewpoints? Are we the children or the adults, the educators?  Every community has at least two viewpoints, and they can co-exist in harmony.  A healthy community might have hundreds of viewpoints and solutions, too, but can pull it all together and get the job done .

Perhaps when you write to the blogger, you should show some examples of solutions for the current situations and problems that we face. [Editor’s Note: Great advice, Mr Polyak!]  As I showed my leg brace for my cerebral palsy at the RCS board of Ed meeting, I did not bother to show my ID showing that I was a walker or I had to walk over a mile each way to my junior high and high schools.  I even attempted to link and show different school districts for comparisons and email sites too. There were NYS dept of Ed individuals who were present and willing to assist us to find solutions.  Some of them even came down and sat in the audience and took notes but to their disappointment.  If they have to take control it wont be the kids who will be hurt; it will be half the teachers and the Administrator. They noted that no one really placed the kids first.  And some of those followers of the blog are the Dept of Ed officials, as it is part of their job to monitor the situation.

I also set out examples of the YMCA taking over the pool.  It doesn’t matter whether the teacher’s contracts were handed in weeks before or 5 minutes before.  The teachers’ unions are not as powerful as you think they are, and they give nothing back. Some good teachers are struggling to make ends meet, too, and are not greedy at all!  They answer to a much more powerful organization, the NYSED who certify and license them; they can’t teach if their license is revoked. And NYSED answers to “us, the People”.  They are just sitting back, waiting to see what the district votes . You haven’t read about Rhode Island, where the state fired all their teachers.  And then a few months later all the teachers begged for their jobs back at 80% of what they had.

We are in depression; deal with it  people! Don’t believe me, please go on the internet and check.  There are people who have worked in the RCS school district for 10, 15, 20 years who are not teachers.  And they still make under $20,000 per year. [Editor’s Note: In the RCS central school district the teachers average out at about $63,000, up to over $70,000. You don’t want to know what Superintendant Elizabeth Smith is pulling out of the district!]  Some of them would have a better life living on welfare!

Again If anyone wants I will personally bring them to the Dept of Ed  personal so they can hear it straight from NYSED If its a No! votes them teachers and staff are gone and the kids still have sports and music. If it’s a Yes! vote the Dept of Ed  brings in its auditor line by line and the waste goes! This is what the Governor wants to see happen across the state because he does not want to see another 2 million residents leave the state!  The kids will not lose they will have music and sports at the bad or not so good teachers’expense! [Editor’s Note: Thank you! Mr Polyak! That’s a very important point you’ve just driven home. I hope the readers pick up on it. Teachers beware!]

On of the main  issues here is the inequity of employment.  Where and how we are going to fund programs.  And avoid another 2,000 people moving out of our community or a major company from shutting down or moving out.  So what is your solution?  I will always be out in the open. All are always welcome to knock on my door to discuss any issue and I will present them with the government records so they can draw their own conclusions.

Just stop dragging the kids in the middle they enough problems growing and finding their own identity; they don’t need to be made pawns in the battles waged by the adults!

Editor’s Comment: Thank you Mr Lazlo Polyak for a very reasonable and balanced article. We may not have agreed with everything you write but we do appreciate the time and effort you put into this. We are pleased to publish it with minor edits. Note: Mr Polyak is solely responsible for the content of his article; we have not checked the facts but are assured that Mr Polyak has done so.

Our position is and remains that the residents of the RCS Central School District should vote NO! on the budget and all other issues on the ballot on May 15, 2012.

Vote NO! on May 15th

Special Notice: We make every effort to be truthful, complete, fair, and balanced on this blog; therefore, if you see anything that you know to be false or incorrect, or if you have additional information to clarify any issue, please let us know by e-mailing your information or by leaving a comment.

Topple the Teachers Tower on the Board of Education

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog now.

The Teachers  and False Prophets Are Building A Fortress to Push For Their Special Interests on the Board of Education. We Have Some Suggestions On How to Topple the Teachers’ Tower!

Teachers Association Building a Tower of BS

Step 1:

Stop being afraid! Stop fearing your neighbors! Fight back, damn it! That’s exactly where the perps and the pervs want you: afraid and quiet. They’re bullies and as soon as you come out and defy them, watch the bastids run for their rat holes! 

You’re Being Bullied! Stop the Coeymanazis!

 Step 2:

Urge your fellow residents to Vote NO! on the entire ballot on May 15th. Discuss the vote everywhere you go. Print out pages of this blog or the Vote NO! flyer we provide at  Why You Should Vote NO!

Step 3:

Get the Vote NO! signs up and watch for sign vandalism. There have been a large number of reports of sign vandalism in the district. When the Vote NO! signs are being destroyed you can bet it’s not the residents who oppose the budget! What more needs to be said? If it’s kids, where are the parents? If it’s adults, well, that’s why we need to be getting the cops involved…but then with people like Deluca, Darlington, and the perps in uniform on the Coeymans Gestapo force…Nah! Small chance. The best bet is to call Agent Holly at the Albany FBI (Telephone No. Phone: (518) 465-7551).

Confidential = Secret!

A reader is asking for help in getting text and graphics for Vote NO! signs; you need to get together to create the signs, to form groups to put them up, to form groups to distribute flyers. Let us know in a CONFIDENTIAL comment if you’ll be willing to host a sign-party, be an organizer, join a Vote NO! group. Send us the CONFIDENTIAL comment and we’ll make sure it get into the right Vote NO! captain’s hands (CONFIDENTIAL comments are secret!). You need to act NOW! Time is running out!

Step 4:

Start drafting write-in candidates. Find people who are not teachers or married to teachers, good role models, no criminal or anti-social skeletons in the closet, intelligent (intelligent doesn’t mean having an MA!), and truly interested in the community. Spread their names around as write-ins. Spend $10 to have some flyers printed and distribute them. Write yourself in, if necessary, to prevent the Teachers’ Choices from getting the numbers!

Step 5:

Put a Vote NO! sign on your lawn or in your window! Let everyone know your position on this issue of uncontrolled spending and giveaways.

Step 6:

Be unafraid! Be a role model for your neighbors! Stand alongside victims of intimidation! Be a fighter, damn it! Be the anti-bullying champion in your community! 

Topple the Tower!
