Ravena Still Ignores Oaths of Office and Rights Protected by State and Federal Constitutions!!!

We have just received a report from a resident and property owner in the Village of Ravena. It looks like elected officials and public servants are again playing their Gestapo games and ignoring residents’ rights and the laws of this state and country. This resident is one of the few that actually came forward with his experiences. We have spoken to a number of others who have similar stories of Ravena’s targeting residents for everything from a children’s swimming pool on their property to “discarded rubbish,” without any further specifics.

Science has shown that incest can generate stupid people. That may explain Ravena Village Hall.

We have reported in the past about Ravena’s in-crowd and their total disconcern for the rights of residents and citizens. Here’s what our reader writes about one of the more recent violations of guaranteed and protected rights by our self-important public servants of nepotism, conspiracy, and conflicts of interests.

Our reader writes:

It’s been a long time since I’ve contacted the Editor and left a comment on the Smalbany blog. I think I’ll call this “Full circle.” Yesterday I received what appears to be two citations in the mail from the village of Ravena apparently notifying me of code violations.

For your information and as illustrations, I am also providing you by emailing you a copy of the correspondence and pictures of what the Code Enforcement officer is referring to. It’s pretty much self explanatory that Mr. Ron Hohman, so-called Zoning Enforcement Officer, is a bit ignorant and illiterate. He’s also in violation of his oath of office because he’s violated the protected rights assured by the New York State and the United States Constitution, both of which he’s sworn to support. I guess he’s overlooked the 14th amendment and the laws relating to violations of private property rights.

As you can see in one of the notices, he’s concerned about a vehicle parked in my driveway in the back of my building. The other violation” cites so called “discarded rubbish.” Any property in the back of my building is far from “discarded rubbish,” and I do take offence that Mr. Hohman, overreaching his authorities and unlawfully entering my private property, further offends me by describing my property as “discarded rubbish.” First of all, who is Mr. Hohman to decide what is “discarded” and what is “rubbish.” Being the curious person I am, I went to Ravena Village Hall to ask them what their official definition of “rubbish” might be, simply commenting that the violation is so vague, and I couldn’t find any “discarded rubbish” on my property.

Mr. Hohman’s notification of a zoning violation because I have an unplated vehicle on my property, in my driveway, and the suggestion that it is not operating or roadworthy, raised other questions. First of all, Is Mr. Hohman a qualified automotive mechanic? Did he make an inspection of the vehicle to determine whether it operates or not? Highly unlikely on both counts. I am also concerned that Mr. Hohman actually entered my property to obtain the Vehicle Identification Number from the registration sticker, something that is invisible from the street and you’d have to get up real close to be able to see it. In other words, Mr. Hohman trespassed on my private property to get the VIN. Violation of my protected constitutional rights and something that will have repercussions very soon in terms of criminal charges.

But what has the vehicle to do with the zoning status of my property? Obviously, Mr. Hohman and the Village of Ravena have opened a can of worms, AGAIN! I had and still have a lot of unanswered questions.

I have lived in the Village of Ravena for more than 25 years, I am a responsible property owner, and a participating member of my community. I am respectful and courteous to everyone. I think I’m not asking too much for respect and courtesy from my elected officials and our public servants. I reasonably expected the courtesy of a knock on the door, perhaps? Is that too much to ask, Mr. Hohman? On the day the notifications were issued, that is, if the date of August 1, 2018, is truthful, I was home all day and nobody knocked on my door, least of all Mr. Hohman from the Village, to get permission to be on my property or even to talk to me informally about any suspected violations. Furthermore, the only way to get any facts or information for both alleged “violations,” if they are violations at all, was that Hohman had to accessed my property to see what’s actually behind a 6ft fence! How does Hohman justfy this criminal trespassing? Hohman had to go to some trouble to see around the neatly arranged trash containers at the edge of my property.

Back to my “Full Circle” quote. The reason why I’m saying “full circle” because some 25 years ago the Ravena Zoning Board held a meeting and then a special meaning about my property without my knowledge or inviting me to comment, again yet another violation of the right of due process and fair hearing. Ravena has a long history of violating constitutional and protected rights: They accused me, tried me, convicted me, and then sent me my sentence without fair hearing. That’s Ravena for you. My attorney at the time, an now retired, read them the riot act in a letter informing them that their conduct was a gross violation of my constitutional rights. They have very short memories apparently.

You’ve written a lot about the Village of Ravena and the Town of Coeymans’ violation of citizens’ and residents’ rights without any form of due process or concern for the New York State or United States Constitutions and the Bill of Rights. They have sworn oaths to support the constitutions and thus to defend our rights and the laws of the state of New York and this great country, but they ignore their duties, their obligations, and their oaths of office. It’s become commonplace in Ravena and the surrounding area and it has to stop. We have rights as citizens and we all deserve due process and fair hearing, it’s guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and the Constitution!

I look forward chatting with you because you can’t make this stuff up, and the pictures and the violations speak for themselves.

Letters from Mr Ron Hohman, Village of Ravena Code/Zoning Enforcement Officer.

The laws simply do not use the word “rubbish”

We’ve done our research and wanted to know first of all what “discarded rubbish” is supposed to mean. There are two problems with Mr Hohman’s use of the phrase: Firstly, rubbish is not a legal term with a reliable definition. if you look for a legal definition of “rubbish” you’ll probably be redirected to the legal notion of “waste,” as in “solid waste” etc. The laws simply do not use the word “rubbish,” so we can say that the use of the undefined term in the notification has no legal impact or effect.

Resident’s Back Yard Seen from Street. No “rubbish.”

Waste is actually a subjective concept, because things that some people discard may be of value to others

In fact, our research shows that “waste” refers to unwanted substances that people generally tend to dump.  Depending upon the locale and common language waste is also sometimes referred to as rubbish, trash, garbage, or junk. One point is very clear, though, waste is actually a subjective concept, because things that some people discard may be of value to others. It is a natural part of the ecological cycle. It is created when living organisms take in materials and excrete them after use. Waste can be recycled by other living organisms. Discarded home appliances, kitchen waste, sewage sludge, manufacturing waste, packaging waste, old paint containers, biological waste, and hospital waste are all examples of waste. Waste is classified into different types based upon their sources and nature. Solid waste, biodegradable waste, hazardous waste, medical waste, e-waste, yard waste, construction and demolition waste, agricultural waste, and mining waste are the different types of waste.

Resident’s Back Yard viewed from 2nd floor porch. No “rubbish.”

Ravena Code Enforcement Officer Ron Hohman makes no sense.

Another question that arises is how Mr Hohman determined that whatever it is he is referring to as “rubbish,” or more properly put, waste, is in fact “discarded.” Discarded means “unwanted,” “dumped,” “junked,” etc. Fact is, Hohman has no way of knowing whether anything at all is “rubbish” in terms of being “waste,” and furthermore, Hohman has no way of knowing that the property to which his is referring as being “rubbish” has actually been “discarded.” Hohman makes no sense. But that’s not surprising for Ravena and its neighbors.

The other troubling question is Mr Hohman’s concern about a vehicle parked lawfully on private property and Hohman’s wild speculations that the vehicle violates the law by simply being in the resident’s driveway. Hohman does this without any further inquiry or discussion. That’s absolutely offensive by any standard!

The offending vehicle, parked lawfully on the resident’s property, in his private driveway.

In short, Mr Ron Hohman has his head up his arse because he is assuming with no factual basis that the vehicle on the resident’s property is an abandoned, junked, partially dismantled, etc. vehicle under the provisions of New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law!!!

We have personally visited the resident’s property to verify the images sent and to examine the correspondence received from the Village of Ravena and Mr Ron Hohman, Village of Ravena Code/Zoning Enforcement Officer.

Pull Your Head Out, Hohman!!!

We found the vehicle to be in good condition and would never qualify as abandoned, discarded, junked, or partially dismantled. In fact, it’s quite a nice vehicle. We are informed that it belongs to the resident’s daughter who has been saving to manage insurance, registration and putting it on the road. Is that a violation, we ask? We also suspect that Mr Hohman in his haste to get a violation while violating the resident’s protected rights and trespassing on the property, actually missed the dealer’s plates on the front seat of the vehicle. We didn’t miss them. Did you miss those plates Mr Hohman? Or do you expect that they should have been on the vehicle so that they could be stolen, and the Coeymans police investigation allowed to go cold without an arrest or recovery of the plates. 

Maybe Ron Holman has better credentials than a NYS licenced motor vehicle inspector; maybe that’s how he knows the condition of the vehicle. NOT!!!

Oh! Did we neglect to mention that the property owner’s son is an automotive mechanic with licences for several classes of vehicles as a State Motor Vehicle Inspector? And that he drove the vehicle to it’s present location? Did we fail to mention that insignificant fact? But then, maybe Mr Holman has better qualifications to determining whether a vehicle is junk or roadworthy. Got a response, Ronny-boy?

As for the “discarded rubbish” to which Mr Hohman refers, we were unable to find any discarded anything on the property, much less anything that would qualify as “rubbish,” “trash,” “garbage,” or “waste.” In fact, the pictures provided by the resident are clear and factual: There are household items belonging to the resident, his family, and his tenants, including several functional grills. There are some spare parts arranged on a workbench, a tire leaning up against the building, and several containers. No rubbish. Nothing that appeared that it should be discarded. In fact, what we saw had value, was usable, and had every right to be stored neatly in a resident’s back yard, on his private property, without being a nuisance or an eyesore to anyone, especially given the fact that it is actually surrounded by a six-foot fence!!!

So, in conclusion, we have to ask what Mr Hohman’s game is? Does he have an ax to grind? Does someone in Ravena Village Hall have an ax to grind? Does Mr Hohman have to justify his job and “create” violations where there are none? And why is it necessary for Mr Hohman to break the law and violate a resident’s, a citizen’s protected rights to cook up some sort of idiotic and unfounded “violations”?  We’ll be investigating these questions in more depth and will report on our findings. First of all, we’ll find out more about this character Ron Hohman and get some background on him. Something’s fishy here AGAIN and we will get to the bottom of the stinking pond called Ravena, and find out what the bottom-feeders in Ravena Town Hall are up to. Stay tuned!

We’ll get to the bottom of this.
The Editor

Editor’s Note: Unlike Mr Holman, Ravena’s roving public servant terrorist, we obtained the property owner’s permission to visit and view his property.

 

 

Changing the Subject for a Moment…Let’s talk about Nancy Warner.

We figure you must be a bit tired of reading about rogue cop s and animal abuse, so we’re going to change the subject for a moment.

Let’s Talk About Nancy Warner and Irresponsibility and Corruption.

Nancy Warner: Lean and Mean behind the Ravena Dem Machine.
(The hill-town version of angry-old-woman Nancy Pelosi)

When we talk about the failure of local government, we cannot avoid thinking of the Village of Ravena, New York, a nest of political incest if there ever was one.

The recent raccoon incident calls to mind Nancy Warner, a trustee, that is, a member of the Ravena Village council, and her history of idiotic pet programs and wasteful agendas. Warner is a relic from the past, from the “Mummy Mayor” era, and has a reputation for being a veritable Witch-on-a-Stick (we all know where the stick is, too). She likes her little coven of idiots; We all know the saying “In the village of the blind the one-eyed man is mayor.” Well in a village of halfwits, the idiot is wannabe mayor.


The Raccoon PETITION got 1.6 million likes on Facebook! As of this writing (March 26, 2018), the “Justice for raccoon killed by officers from Coeymans Police Department in New York Statepetition on Care2 now has 88,060 signatures of which 10,589 are from New York. The goal was 85,000 but the response was so great we’re looking for 90,000 signatures! Express your outrage and add your signature here. Please help get us to the goal of 90,000 protest voices!!!

But let’s get back to the point. The recent raccoon scandal that was perpetrated by two Coeymans police personnel at Ravena’s trashy Faith Plaza, brought to light a number of problems. Of course, the first problem is making sense of how two alleged qualified law enforcement personnel could harass, terrorize and kill (by running it over after some 15 minutes of torturing it) a wild raccoon, and do this in a crowded parking lot to the absolute disgust and horror of dozens of people. The Coeymans police response: ‘They had to use their vehicles to ensure the public’s safety.’ This situation becomes even more bizarre when you think that the scandalous scene was perped not by one idiot in one vehicle, who we then could say was just stupid and have done with it, it was two idiots in two separate vehicles. We’d love to hear the radio exchange between the two morons as they got their perverse rocks off killing the raccoon. That chapter has not yet ended and we’re following it closely.

The trashy Faith Plaza in Ravena. Home of Shop’n Save, CVS, and Dolan’s Choices program. Owned by the “Christian” Aaron Flach family of Ravena.

This all happened because a caller from the Ravena CVS at Faith Plaza noted the raccoon “trying to get into the building.” The conclusion was not that the animal was hungry, curious, but that it had to be “rabid.” A call goes into the Albany County 911 Center, which routes it then to the Coeymans Police and, well, the whole world knows the rest of the story. (For details on how owner of Faith Plaza, Aaron Flach responded, please see the Hudson Valley 360 article, “Petition calls for disciplinary action for raccoon killing,” of March 18, 2018, the updated petition has 83,777 (9,620 in New York) as of March 23, 2018.)

Crandall has been cutting the police budget since day 1 of his taking office

When cornered, Coeymans Town Supervisor, Phil Crandal states that “the call should never have been given to the Coeymans police,” but Mr Crandall doesn’t say to whom the call should have gone. The Coeymans Police Law Enforcement Manual states clearly that animal control calls should go to the Animal Control Officer. The problem is that the Town of Coeymans doesn’t have an Animal Control Officer, and the Manual hasn’t been updated since 1998 (neither have the other chapters in the “Town of Coeymans Police and Village of Ravena Police” Administrative Manual, such as Traffic Operations or Recruitment/Promotion, etc.).Problem is, Crandall has been cutting the police budget since day 1 of his taking office.

The Village of Ravena Abolished its Police Department in 2006

But Ravena does not have a police department, it was abolished in 2006! Here’s the official act abolishing it on January 17, 2006:

Article II:
Abolishment of Police Department
[Adopted 1-17-2006 by L.L. No. 1-2006[1]]
Editor’s Note: This local law also stated that it shall take effect 30 days after its enactment and is subject to permissive referendum. This local law was approved by the majority of the electors voting in the general election held 3-21-2006.
§ 22-6
Department abolished.
The Police Department of the Village of Ravena is hereby abolished.

The reason: to reduce costs involved with the operation of the Ravena Police Department. The result: The Coeymans Police Department took over law enforcement jurisdiction in the territory of the Village of Ravena.

Neither the Village of Ravena nor the Town of Coeymans has an Animal Control Officer

In the meantime, neither the Village of Ravena nor the Town of Coeymans have animal control officers, full-time or part-time. Again, the positions were eliminated for fiscal reasons. Eliminated to save money, that is. But while the Ravena Village Council and the Town of Coeymans are cutting public safety positions to save bucks, the Village of Ravena has no scruples wasting taxpayer dollars to pad the pockets of village “friends.” We’re referring to Nancy Warner’s pet project, the Ravena Fitness Center, for which the village of Ravena shelled out more than $40,000 to village “friend” and insider, Robert “Bob” Fisk — Fisk at the time wasn’t even living in Ravena, he was in Florida! —, for used fitness equipment from his defunct fitness center, previously mismanaged and failed under Guess who? Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca’s partner, Cathy Deluca. Warner promptly handed over the Ravena Fitness Center to none other than fitness-club-failure-expert, Cathy Deluca. In the two years that Deluca ran the Ravena Fitness Center, the Center lost at least $115,000 a year!!! All Ravena taxpayer dollars. Ultimately, the Center failed after a short period of Deluca’s mismanagement. Deluca got paid and Carver Laraway did the village a favor by buying the equipment for pennies on the taxpayer dollar.

Nancy Warner’s Response to Ravena and Coeymans Residents.

We mention the history of the Ravena Fitness Center for two reasons: Nancy Warner’s stupidity and fiscal irresponsibility, and Nancy Warner’s corrupt practices in doing favors for the Ravena Incest Club, friends of the administration. Nancy Warner was also behind the harassment of local youth by the Coeymans Police for hanging around the village gazebo (which has since been removed), and for her involvement with then Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington and Coeymans cop Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca for a number of violations of civil and constitutional protected rights.

And a bit THANK YOU! to Mr LP of Ravena for reminding us that it was at Nancy Warner’s urging that the RCS Community Library was thrown out of the space to make it available for Cathy Deluca’s most recent failure, the Ravena Fitness Center. Not only did Warner urge the Village Board to evict the Community Library, while insiders Persicos were “renovating” the Library’s new digs, Warner actually punished the Community Library for not moving out by raising the Library’s monthly rent!!! Warner raises the Library’s rent and the money comes out of community and children’s programs but that doesn’t matter to someone like Nancy Warner and her pack of flying monkeys! She was sending Darlington, Deluca, and Johnson  of the Coeymans Police Department out to harass the kids on the street, and you think she’d want them to be in a library? That’s not the way she works. Nancy Warner works by screwing the community and taking care of her friends in the Ravena-Coeymans Incest Club! Typical of any fascist regime — and fascist is the most accurate description of Warner’s little nest in Village Hall with it’s figure-head mayor, Mouse Misuraca — Nancy Warner has no use for intelligence or education; after all, a stupid population is easier to control than an intelligent one. How quickly we forget, people!

Nancy Warner sending out her Monkey-Pets in the Darlington-Deluca Coeymans PD to harass local youth. One scandal after the other! Does it ever end?

Nancy Warner’s husband Harold “Hal” Warner, a sitting Village justice, is the man behind the backstabbing of then part-time village justice and full-time Coeymans town justice, Phil Crandall, resulting in Crandall’s forced resignation in disgrace from the elected judgeships. Nancy Warner, at the time, “supervised” her own husband’s court operations.

Ravena Village Justice Hal Warner disgracing the American Flag (Warner is in the foreground).

 

No story about Nancy Warner would be complete without mentioning her pet rodent, Mayor Bill “Mouse” Misuraca.

The Nancy and Hal Warner are democrats as is Phil Crandall, but given their history, do you wonder that there’s no dialogue and only animosity between The Village of Ravena and the Town of Coeymans? We tend to think that the two communities,separated only by an immaginary line — they were once a single municipality, Ravena-Coeymans, until divided into the Village of Ravena and the Hamlet of Coeymans — but even so, the Town of Coeymans offices are actually still located in the Village of Ravena, on Russell Avenue! Go figure!!!

Since March 20, 2018, the entire Ravena village board has been packed with Democrats, all under the heavy hand of Nancy Warner; the only Republican on the Ravena village board is Mayor Bill “Mouse” Misuraca, elected by his loyal barroom customers and perhaps a couple of dyed-in-the-wool die-hard Republicans still allowed to live in the Village of Ravena. That probably makes no difference anyway, since Misuraca is totally ineffectual — unless it’s tapping a beer keg or pouring a shot– and Warner ran things anyway, witch that she is.

So, people, what does this mean for the perennial problems plaguing the neighbors Ravena and Coeymans, such as water, sewerage, law enforcement, animal control? Well, the picture ain’t pretty, as you can well imagine. But ask Town Supervisor Phil Crandall and he’ll tell you, “Put that in an email or a letter and get it to me.” That’s where it will die.

With Democraps commandeering both Ravena and Coeymans boards but with the seething and roiling hatred between top elected officials, Warner and Crandall, the residents and taxpayers will continue to be victimized by the self-serving, corrupt and incompetent Village and Town Halls.

The recent raccoon scandal brought the historical scandal to light but this time it came to light on a never-before-experienced scale; this time it’s international.

So Ravena abolishes its police department to save money. Both Ravena and Coeymans abolish animal control to save money. Both law enforcement and animal control are public safety services.But that doesn’t stop Ravena (Warner) or Coeymans (Crandall) from spending on their pet projects!

Ravena, under Warner’s dictatorship, finds the money to fund a Ravena Fitness Center, and to take a load of used fitness equipment off a friend’s — that is, Bob Fisk’s — hands to the tune of more than $40,000. She then hands over a large portion of Ravena Village Hall to her friend Cathy Deluca, and approves a handsome salary for Deluca to manage the facility. Deluca manages the facility over a period of two years right into oblivion, as she had done with two previous fitness clubs she had “managed.” A fine example of local government’s idea of fiscal responsibility, right?

After Nancy Warner’s husband, Hal Warner, forced his fellow justice, Phil Crandall, into disgraced resignation, Crandall, banned forever from running again for judicial office because of his corruption — in which Coeymans board member Tom Dolan and Albnay County legislator, Richard Touchette were recipients — and ethical violations while a judge, now runs for public office, for the office of Coeymans Town Supervisor.

Nancy Warner was/is breast-to-breast, vag-to-vag with Cathy Deluca and Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca

Cathy Deluca
Who does your hair, sistuh?

You’ll need a little background to understand Crandall’s hatred for the Coeymans Police Department and why Crandall did everything possible to drive any competent leadership from the Coeymans Police Department. Crandall’s vendetta has its roots deep in the Warner-Deluca conspiracies. You see, Nancy Warner was/is breast-to-breast, vag-to-vag with Cathy Deluca and Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca, who, in turn were in a love-fest with Gregory “Dumplin” Darlington. When Hal Warner disposed of Crandall, this Warner-Deluca-Darlington love triangle was going full-throttle, until their activities were getting too hot to handle and Darlington and Deluca had to go — either just go, or go to jail. Now that the Delucas and the Darlingtons were sufficiently disgraced and out of the public picture, the scene was set for the Warner-Crandall wars.(It’s also interesting that Carmen Warner was fired from the Albany DA’s office and Leah Darlington left the DA’s office shortly thereafter to take a position as a secretary with Tom Dolan’s Choices program. Was it getting too risky for Albany County DA David Soares to have these liabilities in his office?) Just one more objective was left for Crandall — and he’s very near successful — that is, getting rid of the Coeymans Police Department.

Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca.
Now with the New York State Fire Chiefs Association.

Phil Crandal is a retired prison guard and brings all the charm and refinement of a prison guard personality to Coeymans Town Hall.

But Crandall is no prize when it comes to human relations and fiscal responsibility. First of all, he’s a retired prison guard and brings all the charm and refinement of a prison guard personality to Coeymans Town Hall. Secondly, he’s surrounded himself either with a harem of paid women or a coterie of recycled political losers like Jim Youmans (used car salesman, lost a previous election then ran again under Crandall) and Tom Dolan (director of the Ravena CHOICES program, another political loser). Dolan and Rick Touchette (director of the notorious Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany Cemeteries, and recently “elected” to the Albany County Legislature) were both involved in the corruption and unethical activities that led to Crandall’s disgrace, Touchette and Dolan having received favors from Crandall while he was a judge. Touchette was part of the gang, too.

Crandall likes to hire consultants, clerks and secretaries for the Supervisor’s office

As we noted above, Crandall also likes to cut budgets to pad his office staff. He likes to hire consultants, clerks and secretaries for the Supervisor’s office, but likes to cut police and other budgets to save money (for his projects and friends). When cornered for answers, Crandall’s stock response is “send me an email” or “put that in a letter.”

A Lot of Finger-pointing going on right now in Ravena and Coeymans.

So we now have a scandal built up around the unfortunate fate of a wild raccoon who happened to be in the same space as two rogue Coeymans police idiots. The actors in this comedy of errors happen to be two Coeymans police personnel, admittedly morons, and a raccoon, at the time “presumed” to be a little too curious, a little too friendly, and thus “rabid.” Crandall has his moment pointing the finger at the bad cops and promising an investigation and accountability. Bravo, you stinker! Acting Coeymans Chief of Police, Daniel Contento, asking himself how’d I get into this position and what’s going to happen with my pension? Mayor “Mouse” Misuraca stands back and claims to be an animal lover and not to have any power or authority over the Coeymans Police, uses that simplistic mantra to get his useless ass re-elected. Nancy and Hal Warner are delighting that arch-enemy Phil Crandall has a scandal on his hands — again — and the public’s eye is on him, not on them.

Our burning question is this: Where is the Office of the New York State Comptroller, the Office of the Albany County District Attorney, the Office of the New York State Attorney General, and the FBI while all of this public corruption and abuse of public office is going on in broad daylight and has been going on for decades?

We think it’s high time for a lot of audits, investigations, indictments, prosecutions, and convictions. What do you think?

We’ll be asking similar questions about the New Baltimore town government, the New Baltimore Highway Department, and their ineffective and corrupt operations in an upcoming article. The situation, therefore, doesn’t appear to be isolated only to Ravena and Coeymans; it appears to be contagious, a sort of rabies that infects neighboring local governments like Ravena/Coeymans and New Baltimore. Maybe we can find two morons to run them over, too?

WE REALLY HOPE THE TWO IDIOT COPS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED AND ARE NOT STILL OUT THERE ON OUR STREETS!!!

NEXT STEPS:

RECALL PHIL CRANDALL; REMOVE HIM FROM OFFICE
ABOLISH THE COEYMANS POLICE DEPARTMENT
INVESTIGATE NANCY WARNER AND THE RAVENA VILLAGE BOARD
PROSECUTE THE ROGUE COPS
CLEAN UP THE COMMUNITY — CREATE A LOCAL WATCHDOG GROUP
MAKE THE ALBANY COUNTY DA P. DAVID SOARES ACCOUNTABLE

Let’s Get Back to Exposing Local Dysfunctional Government

Celebrating the Zodiac of the Monkey in the Year of the Female Fire Chicken


We certainly hope so because here it comes!

We’re going to give the ghouls of corporate funeral services a rest for now as we collect some tidbits on the Albany County Coroner’s office and its scandalous dysfunction à la Smalbany.

But now let’s get back to our local heroes, our Town of Coeymans Police Department and our local town and village court justices. The upcoming articles are really going to knock your knickers off!

So here’s a preview of what’s coming up:


The Crandall Police Department a.k.a. Coeymans PD: No money to do it right but plenty to waste.
Freedom of Information, Crimes Uninvestigated, No Arrests, and Dawn LaMountain Computer Illiterate

Local Police Working Together in Investigating Serious Crimes

The Coeymans Police Department has been dragging ass for two years now on various investigations, including some very serious crimes perpetrated in the Town of Coeymans. We have demanded records from the Town of Coeymans Police Department but must admit they have been very uncooperative in terms of working with us. Wonder Why? We were hoping the once Gregory “Dumplin'” Darlington and Gerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca and his incompetent parasite partner, Cathy Deluca of failed fitness center fame, got the boot, things would change in Coeymans. Well some things did and others only got worse.

Once Dingbat Darlington and Dirty-Hands Deluca were out the door, the most egregious abuses went with them. But even when the ringleaders were booted, their minions were still on the job and old habits die hard. Right Jason Albert? Albert was handed an open and shut case against Cathy Deluca and flubbed it. He was rewarded with a promotion to detetctive. Business as usual in Coeymans. Cases are still being flubbed because the old flubbers are still on the force! That’s why they can’t close a case with an arrest and prosecution.

The other problem is that we’re still stuck with that incompetent racist P. David Soares in the Albany County DA’s office. He’s too busy pandering and politicking to prosecute any cases. If there were arrests in Coeymans we really have to wonder if Soares would have the brains to actually prosecute anything more than a traffic ticket or the guts to prosecute anyone with a Democrap party connection. Not very likely. Soares would much rather cherry pick his cases; he doesn’t want to come out looking like a monkey. Here’s the real test: When asked to spell the word  “ethics”,  Soares failed. He spells it “c-o-r-r-u-p-t”. Typical product of Albany Law School croneyism and Democrap affirmative action practices.

Staff of the Albany (NY) County
Office of the District Attorney

While Darlington and Deluca were violating protected civil rights and protecting their patrons, the McKenna PD is really limp on criminals. We thought P.J. McKenna, when he accepted the job, would clean out the dead wood from the department and start fighting crime. We had hoped that he would reach out to the New York State Police and the Albany County Sheriff’s Department for support in cases where the Coeymans PD didn’t have the expertise or the wherewithal to make an arrest or to encourage prosecution. We were wrong.

We encouraged interdepartmental, interagency cooperation when investigating crimes in our community. Has that happened. The crime has happened but the cooperation hasn’t. The result is that we are all at risk because our elected officials and our public employees, with very few exceptions, are out for themselves and are not committed to the ethical performance of their duties and responsibilities to us, the public to whom they are accountable, whether they know, believe, or like it or not.

Dawn LaMountain, a parasite left over from the Darlington-Deluca mob, doesn’t have a clue about how to comply with demands for production of public access documents under the Public Officer’s Law or Freedom of Information Laws. In fact, she’d rather spend days, even months spinning her wheels and wasting time and resources, something Mr Phillip Crandall says are in short supply, that is, when it doesn’t apply to his cronies and his wild spending on consultants and assistants.

Coeymans PD “Confidential Secretary” Dawn LaMountain at Work.
Underqualified & Overpaid.
Are you looking into this situation Mr Crandall?

We are looking into the problem that Dawn LaMountain doesn’t know shit from shinola about how to use her computer, and gets defensive when she’s made aware of that fact. She’s also making more and working less than the Coeymans Town Clerk, who has duties and responsibilities that would require a staff of 10, but has to make do with one assistant and a part-timer. Tell you something about the Crandall mob?

Greene County Sheriff Gregory Seeley and his band of chimps under the supervision of Greene County DA Joe Stanzione are in the lineup, too. Seems they couldn’t investigate themselves out of a toilet paper roll if their jobs depended on it. Guess what Greg, Joe…Your jobs do depend on it.

We’ll be going through a recent F.O.I.L. demands for production of public access documents and information step by step, and you can make your decisions about the Coeymans Police Department and Dawn LaMountain. Out of their mouths they’re crying We got no money! but their actions seem to say they have plenty of time, materials and taxpayer dollars to waste (both in terms of poor management of resources, human and material).

We include the links above so that you have a clearer understanding of what we are and will be discussing in our upcoming article. As for Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares, please use the search feature on this blog to see what we have reported about that dumbass. There’s plenty on the Internet reported by authoritative and reliable media about that phony, if you’re interested.


 Local Town and Village Court Justices

Our Own Retards in Robes!

Retards in Robes

We are going to be looking very closely at the New York State Unified Court System and the antiquated system of unqualified morons elected to be town and village justices.

Any lawyer with a half of a brain can piss down their legs and tell them its ice-water, and they say Yes! It’s ice-water.

Oh, that? It’s just ice-water.

We’re plagued with a bunch of substandard duds elected by their local friends and drinking buddies to administer a bizarre form of “justice” on the Town and Village courts throughout the state. Most of them barely have a highschool education, only a few have a degree, and very few have any training in the law. The basic qualification is a high school diploma, real or equivalent, the support of a local political party, and a handful of morons to elect them. FLASH! You now have a town or village judge who can really do some damage, and they do! Any lawyer with a half of a brain can piss down their legs and tell them its ice-water, and they say Yes! It’s ice-water. For years the state legislature has been trying to eliminate this circus of untrained monkeys but locals still keep the system, despite the long list of failures, abuses, mistakes, Neanderthals holding the office. They may have a courtroom or share a meeting room but in some parts of the state they may hold court in a barn or a garage! We have our own local species of ape-shit and we’re going to expose them for the monkey turds that they are. Stay tuned!

You may be very surprised at what we are going to be publishing about the retards in robes that you elect to administer an ignorant crapola version of justice that makes Judge Judy shite bricks, and has been in line for elimination for decades because of their abuses, lack of qualifications, and downright stupidity.

We’re going to be looking at how the Office of Court Administration has dropped the ball in supervising the courts and we’ll focus on some local town and village justices who administer anything but justice. Here are some of our picks for local ego-maniac, wannabe judges:

  • Joseph Farrell, New Baltimore Town Justice, Dirt-dumb, Alleged adulterer (high-moral values), voted in by local “friends”
  • Harold “Hal” Warner, Current Village of Ravena Judge, Former Albany cop disciplined for civil rights violations, Runs court with wife, village trustee witch-on-a-stick Nancy Warner, supervising, Known for stabbing former village justice Phil Crandall in the back
  • Phil Crandall, Current Town of Coeymans Supervisor, Disgraced Ravena Village and Coeymans Town Justice
  • Gregory Dardiani, Former Food Services Manager, Coeymans Town Justice, in treatment for blood disorder but still collecting his checks from the Town of Coeymans
  • Lee Davis, Third-class dyslexic dud attorney at New York Department of Health (the state of New York will hire just about any bottomfeeder misfit, it seems), Defeated New Baltimore Town Justice, even his own brother opposed his re-election
  • Tom Meacham, Incumbent New Baltimore Town Justice, Ethical Violations during his Campaign; no telling what violations he’ll commit while on the New Baltimore town court but we’ll know only when it’s too late
  • Leland E. Miller, Cairo Town Court, The Lawyer’s Justice, ignorant of law and procedure, tends to ask the attorneys for guidance regardless of which side they’re on

Make no mistake about it, these juicebags are real and retarded in the worst way. There are others we could add to this list, unfortunately many others, but we’ll stick with these clowns for now because they each represent a specific kind of ignorance, stupidity and corruption in this idiotic court system called the Town and Village Courts.

 

Given the reputation of these town and village justices, their lack of training and education, the fact that New York State has been trying to legislate them out of business, and the problems and suffering they have caused, it’s incredible that locals still elect these freaks!

We’ll critique and roast each of them individually and let you decide whether to lynch or tar and feather them, or, as some local morons put it, “He’s my friend. I have to vote for him.” Dumbass!

We snapped this in
New Baltimore Town Court — Or was it Cairo?
The Editor
Oh, that? Just more ice-water.

News Shorts to Keep You Updated…Briefly

Who Owns 84 Main Street in Coeymans Hamlet?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


New Program May be Coming to the RCS Community Library 

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

A New Trend in Death Awareness

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

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

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

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

Court on Hold

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

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

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

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


Bill Bailey Running Again?!?

Warner pair, Nancy & Hal, running again!

Warner pair, Nancy & Hal, running again!

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

Bill Bailey Running Again


Local Dentist May Have a Big Toothache

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

RCS Communities Mourn a Special Son

On July 20, 2015, suddenly, unexpectedly a special son of the RCS community for more than 75 years was summoned home; a colorful, memorable, well-liked, loved and respected member of the RCS community, Rodney A. Krzykowski, died but he left an American legacy and true meaning for those of us who are still able to know the American pioneer spirit when we see it. Rodney will be truly missed by many of us. He should be missed by all of us.

In fact, you can thank Rodney Krzykowski for this Blog! This very blog owes its existence to Rodney Kryzkowski. Think back to 2012, when the crooks, conspirators and special-interest lackies (James Latter, Howard Engel, Alice Whalen, Joe Tracey, Josephine O’Connor, Matt Miller, the RCS Sports Association, and the nefarious Delucas, Cathy and Dirty-Hands Jerry) were ambushing and backstabbing, and lying their way into controlling the RCS school board and the $42,000,000+ budget. This blog was started to defend Rodney and to expose the crooks and conspirators for what they were. That was three years ago and we’re still going strong, thanks to Rodney and the raw deal the crooks were handing him.

RodneyK_FrameRodney Krzykowski was a man of few words but those words held incredible meaning. He was an honest man, a man who shot from the hip with deadly accuracy, as many of the members of the RCS board of education, like Mr James Latter, Mr Howard “Bray” Engel, Ms Alice Whalen and others too numerous to name, learned very quickly and have the scars to prove it. Rodney was intelligent and did the math before he opened his mouth, unlike the current Latter board, and when he spoke, he made sense; he never learned double-speak.

Rodney embodied a very rare pioneer spirit and didn’t have very much use for government or the crooks government seems to attract and feed. He was brilliant when it came to researching even arcane subjects and doing his homework. Unlike most of our elected officials and public employees, Rodney thrived on intellectual challenges;if it was out there, he’d find it, and when he did Watch out! Town of Coeymans. Most of the local sheeple tended to condemn him on unsubstantiated misinformation spread by the local incest clubs. Surprised? Unlike Rodney, everyone else had something to say about his politics but none of them really knew anything at all about him or his politics. We did, though, and we must admit that he was on to something, not a fanatic or an anarchist, but a true crusader, a man whose principles guided him, and a man who thumbed his nose to ass-kissers and clique-members. When you spoke to Rodney, you had an instinctual perception that the man was special, honest, had a pioneer integrity that is almost extinct these days.

dove with olive branch

Rodney was a mechanical genius. He loved his cars and he loved racing them. Yes, Rodney raced stock and modified his cars himself, frequently creating machinery to get a job done. If something needed customizing he could conjure up an apparatus to do it. Makes you wonder that he never went the patent route with his creations; the man could have been a millionaire.

Yes, he could have been very comfortable but he preferred to remain simple and work for what he had. If you knew Rodney, you would have to agree with us that you would find it very difficult to find anyone who was a harder worker than he. The man never stopped.

Whether with friends — he was always welcome in many local homes — hanging out in local automotive shops, or at the Medway Café, where you could find hm regularly, he was quiet, minded his own business, but was always available if you wanted to chat. In fact, there was no one still living who knew more about local property histories, businesses, families, and government than Rodney Krzykowski. If you needed to know anything about the property that is now the Port of Coeymans or Don Trickie’s escapades, you’d ask Rodney. He could tell you what was there, what’s still there, who put it there and, if it’s not there anymore, where it went.

tail between legs_looking rightRodney was also an avid history buff and could talk your ear off about the Constitution, the developmental history of taxation, property laws, and the list goes on. He scared the living bejeebers out of local officials, lawyers, judges, because they were ignorant of most of what Rodney had spent years researching. Most local officials rely on an ignorant community and they have their way with the poor bastards; Not with Rodney K! He’d send those dirty dogs packing with their cruddy tails between their legs. We need more Rodneys to keep things kosher in town and village halls.

Rodney owned a tavern and most recently RAK Tire Recovery and the former R.K. Winners Circle. He was not only a businessman and entrepreneur but active in community organizations, too. He was a member of the Ravena Grange and the County Grange and was elected to serve on the RCS board of education. He even raced stock cars at Lebanon Valley for many years.

Rodney was a self-made man, a good man, a generous friend. We are deeply saddened by the way his death was hushed by his family, and how his community was deprived of the opportunity to grieve his death, how Rodney’s friends and admirers were deprived of the opportunity to mourn the loss of a friend and model citizen. We were outraged by the pitifully scant obituary that was tucked away, almost invisible, in a Sunday Times Union. Rodney deserved better, much better. In fact, quite a number of Rodney’s friends and acquaintances were shocked and offended that he was disposed of like a box of old newspapers. A number of those friends and acquaintances even offered to chip in a couple of hundred dollars each to cover a proper viewing and funeral but Rodney’s daughters allegedly wanted to make quick work of it all — the Babcock Funeral Home of Ravena (NY) — a real monopoly in the Ravena area, big prices small productions — , known for its sloppy service, probably didn’t do much to help the general situation.

But the well-hidden, cheapo obituary did announce that Rodney’s memorial service was to be held on

Saturday, August 1, 2015
at 11:00 a.m. at the
Trinity United Methodist Church
Coeymans Hollow

We hope that everyone who knew Rodney will be there to show their support for this fine man, and to show that true American pioneer spirit still has a place in our decrepit culture. Let’s see how Trinity United Methodist will manage to appropriately and fittingly celebrate Rodney’s life; are they up to the task? (See Editor’s Note.)

Editor’s Note: The turnout at Trinity United Methodist Church for Rodney’s memorial service was standing room only. Rev. Meager rushed the actual service a bit and the hymns could have been a bit more energetic but overall the event was a fine tribute. The Grange did a beautiful tribute, and the eulogies spoke only well of Rodney and his contributions to the community. It was a proper tribute to a fine man, and we’d like to thank the community for showing up and doing Rodney proud.

Rodney,
You grew in wisdom, age, and grace and learned through suffering.
May the Lord bless and keep you.
May choirs of angels welcome you and lead you into paradise,
May the martyrs come to welcome you
and take you to the holy city,
the new and eternal Jerusalem,
where you may find respite in the bosom of Abraham;
where Lazarus is poor no longer,
where every tear is wiped away.

There may you find eternal peace.

StJohnsAshfield_StainedGlass_GoodShepherd

We’ll remember you, Rodney.

Ravena: The Scandal Continues

Henry Traver’s $11,000 Pay Raise is Scandalous. Here’s Why:

It’s springtime and you’ll be promenading along the dusty streets of Ravena, chatting to the music of passing heavy trucks,  deeply savoring the stench of diesel fuel, while Carver Laraway is hobnobbing with the New York State governor’s aides, trying to cut deals to repair at taxpayer expense the roads, especially Rt 144, damaged by Carver Companies’ trucks, and while Michael Biscone, Jerry Perrine and Larry Conrad are filling in wetlands with toxic fill and burying natural waterways. (Biscone and Conrad invented the boardgame, “Bury the Creek“.)  Where’s the DEC when Biscone, Perrine and Conrad are doing their mischief? Your elected RCS board of education members are spending your tax dollars hand over fist while putting their own homes up for sale to move out of the area. Yes, all you have to do is ask your RCS board of education president, James Latter, and board member Alice Whalen Why? Why did they run for elected board of education office if they were simply going to jump ship after doing their damage. YES! Ravena-Coeymans, you asked for it and you got it.

More smoke and mirrors regarding the failed Ravena Health and Fitness Center…When will we ever get the truth?

Now, it may be true that you weren’t even asked by the Bruno-Warner-Deluca trio whether you needed or even wanted to spend more than $100,000 a year on a substandard fitness center run by an mutiple-failure, Cathy Deluca. But John Bruno, Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca made the decision for you and you had to live with it for more than two years. Now mayor William “Mouse” Misuraca and his sockpuppet Bill Bailey are telling us that two individuals want to invest private funds in the dump. Well, if there are that many whackos with too much money that they don’t know what to do with it, we can think of dozens of better investments. Asked by a local resident who the so-called interested parties were, the board couldn’t — or wouldn’t say. Why is that? What’s the big secret? What are you giving away now? Shouldn’t we know the name of the “investors“, the heroes who are going to save your political arses? Who may be going to save Ravena taxpayers from abject bankruptcy? Isn’t it our business who is interested and potentially going to take over a dead business in Ravena, a dead business that is still being financed by public tax dollars? We think so, and we want to know who these so-called investors are. Don’t you, residents, neighbors?

Question: If supporters of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center want to claim that the Fatness Center brings business to Ravena, can they explain Why? during the two years the Fatness Center has been operating, at least 4 businesses have closed their doors in Ravena? This includes Mr Aaron Flach closing his drycleaning operation and terminating the staff of the drycleaning business and the laundromat attendants. If that’s how the Fitness Center is attracting business, we’d better expidite closing Cathy Deluca’s playmen before the few remaining businesses pull up stakes!

When asked by a resident at the April 21, 2014, village board meeting: If the unidentified investors don’t take over the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, what will the village do with the equipment that the village of Ravena purchased from Bob Fisk for $40,000? Ravena village board member William “Bill” Bailey simply replies: “We’ll probably auction it.” And likely get ten cents on the dollar for it! Your tax dollars at work, Ravena!

Ravena village trustee Nancy Warner ousted from key positions…No longer supervising her husband’s court operations,  dirty village judge Harold “Hal” Warner. Too bad, Hal, this must mean you might be the one getting a stiff sentence.

But things are looking up when you consider that Nancy Warner is being sidelined and has been demoted. Good news is that she’s no longer supervising her crooked husband’s village court operations. Dirty-Judge Harold “Hal” Warner, Nancy Warner’s husband, will have to deal with another board member supervising his village kangaroo court operations. We’ll be watching to see if there are any improvements or, as we expect, it will be business as usual.

But let’s turn our attention now to the village of Ravena Department of Public Works, the village department that works very hard to avoid working. We recently reported that the village of Ravena Department of Public Works foreman, Henry Traver, has been awarded a more than $11,000 pay raise; he’s now going to make more than $60, 000 a year plus benes! How does the Ravena village board explain that one? Do you have mayor Mouse Misuraca’s telephone number? Give him a call or give one of those talking heads on the village board a call and ask why in hell are they rewarding a dunce?!?

Ravena board to dump more stone on village streets to be washed away …

Well, we also reported how, last year the village of Ravena Department of Public Works under foreman Henry Traver, dumped tons of stone on local Ravena streets, and we warned that it would be washed away or plowed away by spring. Guess what? Central Avenue in Ravena was one of those streets that they covered with the loose stone. Walk along Central Avenue today and you’ll see how our prediction came true. The stone is gone and you can see the old street surface. Your tax dollars at work. But now they’re planning to do the same thing on about a dozen other streets in Ravena. Why are you still reading this? Call Ravena mayor “Mouse” Misuraca and raise some hell!

Ravena storm drains filled to the grill with debris and dirt!

We’ve already reported on the dire condition of the fire hydrants in Ravena-Coeymans and we’re pleased to see that someone’s built a fire under some butts to get them serviced. That’s the good news. But while you’re taking your daily constitutional on the broken streets of Ravena, amuse yourself by the state of the storm drains. We recently surveyed the storm drains on Main Street and a couple of side streets and found that a number of them were filled with debris and dirt to within inches of the grill (see the picture below) !!!

Ravena Storm Drain Filled to the Top with Debris and Dirt!Henry Traver's Supposed to be Maintaining Them

Ravena Storm Drain Filled to the Top with Debris and Dirt!
Henry Traver’s Supposed to be Maintaining Them

We need to ask Ravena mayor “Mouse” Misuraca and his board of sockpuppets Why? are these storm drains in such a deplorable state? These drains must be maintained to keep water from eroding the streets and flooding our homes!!! So, instead of maintaining the storm drains, Henry Traver rides around in circles in the village vehicles, and the Ravena village board gives him an $11, 000 pay raise. Doesn’t Ravena see anything wrong with this picture?

Ravena-Coeymans isn’t alone when it comes to incompetent management of municipal, village and town infrastructure. New Baltimore is on a par or at least running a close second position in terms of incompetence and waste by the Highway Department under the mismanagement of Mr Denis Jordan, who has screwed up the drainage and streets in the Hamlet of New Baltimore to an embarrassing level. If it were Ravena or Coeymans Hamlet we’d be writing that it was a plot by Michael Biscone and Larry Conrad to get the homes condemned so that they could buy them up for a penny. But New Baltimore isn’t that sophisticated; New Baltimore is just incompetent. So if you were to take two dildos, throw them into a bag and shake them up, do you know what you’d get if you emptied the bag? Yup! Two dildos. That’s what we got in Ravena and New Baltimore wrecking our infrastructure and wasting our tax dollars; and they’re dressed up like Henry Traver and Denis Jordan.

Trouble in Hooterville a.k.a. Ravena … Again … STILL!

While the public scandal of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center continues to be ignored by the mayor, Mr William “Mouse” Misuraca and his Band of Merry Dithering Dildos, William “Bill” Bailey, Joel Coye, Keith Mahler and former mummy-mayor’s girl, Nancy Warner, and while the Ravena village council, the same Mayor “Mouse” and his Merry Band of Dithering Dildos named above, are passing local laws like Local Law 2 of 2015, requiring all residents in so-called flood plains to obtain flood insurance at the property owner’s expense, citing federal mandates as their way out but neglecting to mention that the federal FEMA program is such an incompetent gory hole that, as with Obamacare and education, the federal government is pushing more and more on the taxpayers of this country and then, when there is a natural disaster, you make a claim, your insurance goes up, and the federal government subsidizes or bails out the insurance and banking institutions. Do you ever get the feeling that the cards are stacked against you? Considering the condition of Ravena’s sewer system and water mains, and the flooding of lawns and village homes, maybe the brainiacs on the Village board should require ALL village property owners to buy flood insurance!

Still hemorrhaging more than $6000 of taxpayer money every month…

deadhorseWell, while the Blond-Bimbo of the scandalous money-pit that’s hemorrhaging more than $6,000 of taxpayer dollars every month, according to the Ravena village council’s own estimates, they are still kissing Cathy Deluca’s broad bottom and still giving her free rein in wasting taxpayer money. Her most recent scam was sending out hundreds of flyers inviting locals to join the leech field they call a health club, but when a Ravena village council asked Deluca at a recent public meeting how many new members the irresponsible promotional campaign actually yielded Deluca claimed she ‘wasn’t sure. Maybe 20 or so’, according to Cathy. Well, that’s a far cry from the some 300-500 that are needed to even make the Ravena Health and Fitness Center come close to breaking even! But Mayor Mouse and Nitwit Nancy and the Merry Band of Dithering Dildos continue to allow Deluca to have her playpen. Why is that, Ravena?

Listen, Cathy: The horse is dead. Stop trying to find another stick to beat it; it’s not going to work (AGAIN!)

Cathy Deluca has no answers but can come up with a lie or two almost immediately…

But while Cathy Deluca has no answers but can come up with a lie or two almost immediately (practice makes perfect, it would seem), and she can’t seem to get things moving in the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, she’s got plenty of advice (and of course, that advice includes her as one of its principal beneficiaries). She’s now touting another “For the kids” line of bullshit, this time it’s nutrition. When will it ever end? Well, considering the money-pit Ravena Health and Fitness Center is losing money to the tune of $6,000+ every month, that comes out to be about $100 grand a year; that can buy a hell of a lot of nutrition and nutrition programs but instead the only nutrition program it seems to be providing for is Cathy Deluca’s and tubby-hubby Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca’s.

But there’s More Trouble A’brewin’ in Hooterville…

And this time it’s the Ravena Planning Board against the Ravena village council;trouble brewing a mutiny, a revolution seems to be about to happen.

According to a very reliable source who will remain anonymous for now but who we’ll call JC (Yes, dear readers, those are the initials of Joel Coye), the Ravena village council has created another problem for itself by overstepping its authorities and messing with the Ravena Planning Board. What’s worse still is that according to our source, the Ravena village council has again violated the law and again has shot itself in the foot.

According to a letter signed by Mayor “Mouse” and his Merry Band of Dithering Dildos, Yes! all five of them (William Misuraca, William “Bill” Bailey, Keith Mahler, Jr., Nancy Warner, and Joel Coye), they are demanding that a certain member of the Ravena Planning Board resign effective immediately, stating:

“It has come to our attention that you made a number of inappropriate and unprofessional comments at the Village Planning Board Meeting held on December 8, 2014. We as a Board strive to maintain the highest level of professionalism and respect in the conduct of all Village officers and employees. We have received numerous complaints as to the statements made by you at the public meeting and in front of your colleagues.

As such, we, the Village Board of Trustees, jointly request that you resign immediately from the Village of Ravena Planning Board.”

The problem is this: At least two sitting members of the board, one being the chairman of the board himself, report not to have any knowledge of any such “inappropriate and unprofessional comments” having been made by the victim. That leaves Joel Coye and Claire Roberts, Nancy Warner’s two moles on the Ravena Planning Board, who concocted the lies.

Warner, Coye, Roberts

Warner, Coye, Roberts

Furthermore, the minutes of the very meeting to which Mayor “Mouse” Misuraca and his Merry Band of Dithering Dildos are referring makes no mention of any problem. Given the fact that the mayor and the board were not present at that meeting, it seems that the only one who could have disseminated such a lie would be Village trustee Joel Coye, who happens to be the Village board liaison to the Planning Board, and Nancy Warner’s breast-feeding flea, Claire Roberts.

The victim JC naturally refused to be railroaded by that bunch of sockpuppets and so, at the next meeting, madam Nancy Warner shows up with Joel Coye and the report is, when the victim JC took his seat next to Claire Roberts “you could hear a pin drop in the room.” Wonder Why?

 Well it may be that Nancy Warner and her minions, including Mlayor “Mouse” and his Band of Dithering Dildos, are making an attempt to remove the dems from the Village Planning Board, expecially those who have been on it for years and know what’s going on. Why sideline members of the Planning Board when you should be working closely together for the good of the community? Personal ambition, greed, vanity, a thirst for power may be at the center of it all. Why work with people who don’t agree with you when you can try to make them disappear and put your friends in their place, and those friends will do whatever you ask. Sounds like a plan, doesn’t it? Piss off the chairman of the Planning Board by ignoring him and maybe he’ll lose his cool and you can get him to resign, too. Then, when space is vacant, Nancy’s little petunia Alicia Nieves, an alternate, can move in.

The republican village council would love to load the Planning Board with cronies, just like the RCS CSD board of education is loaded exclusively with teachers…

What? You don’t believe this could happen? Well consider this: Cathy Deluca is a close friend of Nancy Warner, and Warner covers Deluca’s back whenever the going gets rough. Why do you think Deluca’s still there when anyone else would have been canned ages ago. Now consider Alicia Nieves, who is a friend of Nancy Warner but otherwise a nobody, and who is a regular with Warner at Deluca’s moneypit playpen. They “work out’ together. The republican village council would love to load the Planning Board with cronies, just like the RCS CSD board of education is loaded exclusively with teachers, spouses of teachers, close relatives of teachers, “owned and operated by the New York State United Teachers, the union,” and it’s not in your interest. Same thing can happen to the Village Planning Board; it will become just an arm of the insiders club and will lose it’s autonomy, it’ll become a puppet board. Claire Roberts (kept Bruce Roberts’ name after the divorce) works in the Halfway House for Mayor “Mouse” and Claire Roberts nominated the Bill Misuraca, now Mayor “Mouse”, republican caucus to get him on the ballot to run for mayor. As New Baltimore town supervisor Nick Dellisanti likes to point out when stepping over loyal supporters to appoint a republican to town positions, “Republicans appoint republicans (so screw the rest of you)!” That’s apparently how Claire Roberts got her appointment to the planning board — she attempted to get elected to public office but lost every time so we guess the only way she could get a position is by special favors and getting an appointment. Yeah, it’s a cozy rat’s nest, isn’t it?

Warner, Roberts & Coye Prepping for a Board Meeting

Warner, Roberts & Coye Prepping for a Board Meeting

The problems allegedly all started about 10 months ago, when Claire Roberts was appointed to the Planning Board. Roberts is a frustrated politician who has attempted to run for elected office but has failed. As a friend of Nancy Warner, and a denizen with Planning Board member Alicia Nieves, also a friend of Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca, however, she apparently wants to throw her weight around (no pun intended). That’s why Nancy Warner has to show up (word is she’s got her eye on the mayor’s office but doesn’t the bartender-turned-mayor know any of this? You can soon read what happens in the Town of New Baltimore when a town employee announces his plans to run against one of his bosses.)

Regretful Rat

Regretful Rat

A new study from the University of Minnesota shows that even rats have the ability to experience regret. Regret is a cognitive behavior once thought to be unique to humans — but absent in the Warner and Deluca subspecies —, but neuroscientists A. David Redish, Ph.D and Adam Steiner explained to the journal Science Daily that this isn’t actually the case:

“Regret is the recognition that you made a mistake, that if you had done something else, you would have been better off,” said Redish. “The difficult part of this study was separating regret from disappointment, which is when things aren’t as good as you would have hoped. The key to distinguishing between the two was letting the rats choose what to do.”

(You can read the Redish & Steiner article, “I shouldn’t have eaten there: Rats show behavior of ‘regret’ in choosing the wrong ‘restaurant'” at Science Daily.)

Well, it looks like Nancy Warner, Joel Coye, and Claire Roberts don’t have the character or the integrity to regret what they’ve started, but they sure can look forward to some heavy-duty disappointment when it blows up in their faces. And Ravena mayor Bill “Mouse” Misuraca will come out smelling like a rat, too.

But Why? is Joel Coye, a republican, contacting Tom Dolan, a sitting member of the Coeymans town board and allegedly a democrap, asking him to read this blog? That’s a question Joel Coye should be able to answer but will he? Maybe Nancy Warner can ask Joel Why? he’s going to Tom Dolan. Or maybe mayor “Mouse” Misuraca or girlfriend Claire Roberts? We’d like to know.  Wouldn’t YOU?


There should be no question in anyone’s mind that the Ravena Village Board clearly overstepped their authority when they interfered with the Planning Board’s administration. In fact, the Ravena Village Board displayed extraordinary disrespect to the chairperson of the Planning Board, Mr Al Visconti, by not even having the courtesy to consult with him. Normally, any problems on the Planning Board or in any department, in fact, are initially handled by the particular committee or by the department. Since when does the Village board disregard this protocol and act on their own. If there’s a resignation to be demanded, the Planning Board chairperson with the advice and consultation of the other board members make that demand, and inform the Village board of their action. Only then should the Village board get involved and support the Planning Board’s decision regarding one of its members. In fact, a public hearing should have been held in this matter as per the law! Misuraca and his band of sockpuppets not only committed a serious breach of the Village Code of Ethics but they violated JC‘s rights as well as current procedural law!


This looks like a replay of the backstabbing game they played when they railroaded village justice Phil Crandall into resignation. You see, former judge Crandall’s so-called colleague on the bench, the villain Hal Warner, Nancy Warner’s husband, threw Crandall to the wolves. Our speculation is this: Nancy Warner is the village board member who oversees the operations of the Village Justice Court. Yes, you’re reading correctly. Nancy Warner oversees her husband’s court; Crandall was an outsider and may have known too much so he had to go. So, to keep things nice and cozy, Nancy may have orchestrated Crandall’s disposal with the help of her crooked judge husband. But dear readers, you couldn’t all have been in the dark about what’s going on in your Village hall, could you?

We got your number, Nancy Warner

We got your number, Nancy Warner

The Ravena Viillage Planning Board, with the exception of Claire Roberts, is a pretty honest group of people, many of whom — including the victim, JC — have served the village for more than 10 years. Al Visconti, the chairman of the Ravena Village Planning Board, is a man who plays by the rules, and Rosie Rarick is completely upright and straightforward. It seems that the “republicans”, Nancy Warner and Joel Coye, and Claire Roberts, a dear friend of Nancy Warner, are the actual conspirators.

Is there a party-political motivation to all of this? Al Visconti is a democrat as are the rest of the members. Only Claire Roberts is a republican. Joel Coye, village board liaison to the Planning Board is, of course, a club member and a republican. But truth be told, the Ravena village board doesn’t have the honesty or integrity to be able to play the party loyalty card, they’re RINOs (Republicans in name only), and would change parties at the drop of a hat if it would benefit them. They have no real party mission or an understanding of what the party represents. They asked and Barbara Cumm, the local Republican committee chairwoman, granted them the endorsement.

It’s more than that and here’s what we think: Some time ago, when TCI was campaigning to get approval to put it’s disposal plant in behind the Pieter B. Coeymans Elementary School, in the territory of Ravena, the victim JC suggested that the Village do a complete study of the environmental and health impact of having the TCI installation in the village of Ravena. Obviously, if such a study were to have been done it would have raised some very significant questions and concerns. As a result, TCI jumped across the creek and set up housekeeping not in Ravena but in Coeymans. Well, this really burned some people in Village Hall because now they couldn’t claim to have won a business for Ravena — even at the risk of poisoning our environment and kids as well — and to have lost TCI to Coeymans must have killed them. So a vendetta was sworn. Someone had to pay for putting the interest of residents before those of the Village board club!

Ravena doesn’t mind making laws, it just has a problem obeying laws. We all know of the Village of Ravena’s many violations of the Public Officer’s Law and the Freedom of Information Laws. We’ve all read about the numerous Notices of Claim against the Village of Ravena for violation of civil and constitutionally protected rights of residents and citizens. But it seems like a chronic problem that the Ravena village board simply doesn’t like playing by rules and prefers backstabbing to compromise. Obey the laws on the books? No way!

“We as a Board strive to maintain the highest level of professionalism and respect…” (sounds so-o-o Nancy Warner, doesn’t it?)

steaming bullshit

A Pile of Steaming Bullshit

That’s why it seems like such a pile of bullshit when we read in the Ravena village board’s letter dated December 30, 2014, in which they demand the resignation of the victim JC, and they write, ” We as a Board strive to maintain the highest level of professionalism and respect in the conduct of all Village officers and employees.” Only Nancy Warner could have conjured up a fiction, a lie, a fantasy of that magnitude!

It’s HOT! So stay tuned…

Since we are informed lawyers are getting involved in this most recent scandal created by the amateurs on the Ravena Village Board, we cannot publish everything yet but as soon as we get the go-ahead from the party going after the Village of Ravena, we’ll be the first to publish it for your information. Stay tuned!

Coeymans Has a New Police Chief: Peter J. McKenna

After former Coeymans police chief Gregory “Dumplington” Darlington jumped ship and abandoned his staff, the Coeymans police department, and the Ravena-Coeymans community, the Coeymans town board has worked hard to downsize the Coeymanazi police department. The Coeymans town board, at its regular meeting on Monday, October 27, named Coeymans police officer Peter J. McKenna to replace DoDo Dumplington.

A Very Conditional Congrtulations go to Chief Peter J. McKenna and to the Coeymans Town Board

A Very Conditional Congratulations! goes to
Coeymans Police Chief
Peter J. McKenna

and to the Coeymans Town Board

An Opportunity to Revitalize and for a Complete Makeover

Chief Peter J. McKenna

Chief Peter J. McKenna

Police Chief Peter J. McKenna can use this opportunity to be a hero, to shine, to revitalize the community’s faith and trust of law enforcement or he can continue in the same filthy rut as his predecessor. We hope he’ll take a more positive and honorable heading for as long as he has a department to run.

Defund to Eliminate

Defund to Eliminate

We say “conditional” because we still urge the town of Coeymans to eliminate the Coeymans police department in its entirety but we do understand that it can’t be done overnight. The strategy of defunding the Coeymans police department, and gradually forcing the derelict or dirty cops (read our article: More Coeymans Police Misconduct: We Want Answers!; BAM! Blonde Bimbo Coeymanazi Strikes Again: This Time a State Agency Car) or the more ambitious law enforcement officers to resign, or at least get them out of our schools, and to seek more lucrative, rewarding employment with a real department is a good one, and it seems to be working: several more Coeymans police department employees have resigned this week.

Actually, with the appointment of Chief McKenna, the Coeymans town board has made a second positive step: they’ve appointed McKenna at a salary of almost half the money that rat-king Gregory Darlington was sucking up in addition to benefits and all he could hoard of the Coeymans treasury. That’s not to say that McKenna is not worth Gregory Darlington’s salary and more. McKenna is a professional law enforcement officer with prior service with the Albany Police Department and reached the level of professional detective (not the Coeymans p.d. dork detective variety fathered by that retard Dudlington).

P. David Soares

P. David Soares
Will he hire dolt Dumplington?

Chief McKenna, like most of the Coeymans police department, doesn’t come to us without some historical baggage. Yes, he had problems with the Albany Police Department. Yes he had some conflicts with Albany County’s pilfering, racist, womanizing district attorney, P. David Soares. But he has connections with law enforcement and that’s a good thing. He has conflicts with Soares and that’s a good thing. Unlike dolt Darlington, Chief McKenna may be able to conduct his law enforcement activities on the straight and narrow, not sucking up to a corrupt and incompetent district attorney. Unlike Darlington, Chief McKenna doesn’t have the corrupt concerns about getting a job next to his wife (Dumpling Darlington’s dumpy dumplin’ Leah Darlington works as a secretary/clerk for Soares). Chief McKenna has been patrolling Ravena-Coeymans for a couple of years not and, despite his past, McKenna has earned the reputation of being fair and a generally good cop.

Albany County Enhanced 911 and Elimination of the Coeymans Dispatchers. There may be a hidden benefit to appointing a veteran and well-informed cop with plenty of city experience. Chief McKenna most probably knows a great deal about the Albany County 911 system and can be a valuable source of information and a consultant to the Coeymans town board when considering trimming the Coeymans budget of several hundreds of thousands of dollars by eliminating the redundant dispatchers. (Click here to read our article:
Dispatchers Distribute Misleading Flyer! Lies in Print…AGAIN!)

What we’d like to see Chief McKenna tackle as part of his community outreach efforts (and he will have community outreach, of that we are certain) is this: Under Darlington’s incompetent bastardizing of the Coeymans police department obstruction of justice was rampant, meprision of felony (18 U.S. Code § 4 – Misprision of felony*) was a day-to-day occurrence. Having worked in the Coeymans police department for several years under Darlington’s oppression, Chief McKenna knows all about the obstruction of justice and meprision of felony (especially the obstruction of justice and accessory after the fact in the Cathy Deluca case and concealment by “Dirty Hands” Jerry Deluca, Gregory Darlington and Jason Albert!) that went on in the Coeymans police department and it’s now time to come clean, squeaky clean, and prove that he, Peter J. McKenna, is worthy of the chief’s badge and worthy of this community’s trust. (Maybe Chief McKenna can manage to uniformly, nondiscriminatingly enforce the law and truly to “serve and protect” this community. See our articles: Coeymans: Illegal “Work Zone” Signs and Unlawful Threat of Fines?Criminal Obstruction of Justice & Official Misconduct: Gregory Darlington, Coeymans PDWhat you hear or see, or know can land you in Jail! 18 USC § 4 – Misprision of Felony; Raped by the Coeymans Police Department!)

*Misprision of felony: Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

Cathy Deluca Misdemeanor False Statement

Cathy Deluca
Misdemeanor False Statement

There are dozens, literally dozens, of pending complaint investigations and pending lawsuits against the Coeymans police department and it’s in Chief McKenna’s interest to start on the right foot. One way to do this is to take the time, and it will be a lot of time at first, to manage the complaints and lawsuits crisis in Coeymans. Chief McKenna has to reach out to the aggrieved, defuse the situation, pledge his good will, ensure that the cases are properly investigated and the results communicated to the aggrieved parties, ensure that justice is done by getting rid of the culprits and, if necessary, ensuring that they are prosecuted. There are many in the community who can prove to be valuable allies to Chief McKenna and even to the Coeymans town board if, and only if, Chief McKenna has integrity, is honest with us, and proves he’s fair and is interested in seeing justice done. Ditto for the Coeymans town board. (Read our article: Village of Ravena, Town of Coeymans Police Department Served with Notices of ClaimCriminal Complaint: Catherine M. Deluca a.k.a. Cathy Deluca, Claude A. Wheeles, Ravena Health and Fitness Center; Why Ravena Village Hall Thumbs Their Noses at the Pubic Officers Law…)

Harold “Hal” Warner = Corrupt Judge = Corrupt Justice

Noting the presence of members of the Ravena liars-lair, especially Harold “Hal” Warner, another Albany Cop who got taken off the street for his civil rights abuses, and then was elected to be a village of Ravena justice, a judge of all things! His presence and the fact that he was seen to be consulting with Chief McKenna could give rise to charges of violation of the Judicial Code of Conduct against Warner. What business does a sitting village justice have having secret discussions with the newly appointed town police chief, we have to ask. But Warner, if he’s stupid enough to run for office again, will be embarrassed by a total defeat! We’ll work hard to see that happen. (See our article on the Warners of Ravena: The Warners: A Family Tradition of Misconduct) As for the other self-interested crooks who were conspicuously sitting on pins and needles and felt that they had to be present at the meeting just to calm their nerves, we know who you are and we’re watching together with quite a few other residents. Keep out of the way. You’ve on notice!

(Special note to Dawn LaMountain: Better keep your mouth shut and get a lawyer—maybe your ex-boss Dumplington, can get his wife Leah to sweet-talk Soares into defending you, or at least not to prosecute you—, you may need one soon. Your chubby chicken should also be looking for a job pretty soon, too!) (Read our article Why?: Dispatchers Distribute Misleading Flyer! Lies in Print…AGAIN!)

So, Coeymans, Chief McKenna, you both have our “conditional” Congratulations! “Conditional” because you’re going to be watched like a hawk, we’ll have our ears to the ground and in the community. These next couple of months will either make or break both of you, Coeymans town board and Peter J. McKenna. You both have a lot of healing to do and a lot of trust to mend.

They Publicize Their Ignorance: RCS Does It Again!

The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District and the Community of Ravena-Coeymans Has the Uncanny Ability to Continuously Prove Our Claim that They are COMPLETE DUMBASSES!

RCS Grad: Sponcer. S-P-0-N-C-E-R. Sponcer

RCS Grad: Sponcer. S-P-0-N-C-E-R. Sponcer

  • The voters in the RCS Central School District approved a school budget of more than $42 million and it’s still failing

  • The RCS Central School District Interim Superintendent of Schools, Mr Alan McCartney, has been accused of plagiarizing all or part of his commencement speech given at the recent RCS graduation ceremonies, and he has offered no defense, explanation or apology

  • The RCS Central School District Board of Education is bought and paid for, wholly owned now by the teachers union, New York State United Teachers, NYSUT, and taxpayers have lost all input in the operation of the schools.

In Ravena Coeymans there’s not a single village idiot; they’re all village idiots!

And still, again, something new comes up that convinces you that there’s just no end to the stupidity, the bare-faced craziness in this community. Small wonder that it’s hemorrhaging residents and businesses. Small wonder it’s the laughing stock of the entire region! If it isn’t creating special village fitness clubs for its political friends and handing them fitness centers together with salaries and benefits, if the judges aren’t violating the United States Constitution, if the Coeymans police department isn’t harassing, retaliating, intimidating residents and violating their civil rights, and if the village and town boards aren’t poisoning the air we breathe or the water we drink while playing Russian roulette with our lives and property, they find some stupidity to keep us on our toes. In Ravena-Coeymans there’s not a single village idiot; they’re all village idiots! But you’d think that RCS residents would smarten up!

Not Gonna Happen! Instead, residents just roll their eyes, shake their heads, and sometimes even show enough interest to shake their fists in the dusty Coeymans aire, when they read what we have to say and the facts we uncover. Truth hurts only when it ought to. Well here’s another one for you; read and weep:

On Monday, July 14, 2014, while driving along Route 9W we noticed a very large sign posted at the intersection of Rt 143 and Rt 9W in Ravena, probably the busiest intersection in the entire area. The sign is right in front of the now empty Crossroads garage, across from the RiteAid plaza. Now you know the sign is in a very, very visible position and can be easily seen by countless commuters, visitors, tradespersons, students, parents, etc. traveling both South and North on 9w and East and West on Rt 143. The sign is announcing a Brooks Bar-B-Q event and is embarrassing:

Show the entire world how ignorant you are, RCS! And you wonder why you're a laughing stock? You ask for it!

Show the entire world how ignorant you are, RCS!
And you wonder why you’re a laughing stock? You ask for it!

Hasn”t anyone seen this sign? Hasn’t anyone said anything to the people posting it? Where is the Ravena Village Board, the Coeymans Town Board, ANYONE? Where are the teachers, the board of education members on this one? Where are the parents? Don’t the students even notice? Maybe that’s why this RCS district is such a failure! Plenty of money to throw at the schools, plenty of corruption to fill the seats of the board of education, plenty of money to pay a superintendent to plagiarise a commencement speech but not a peep when the Ravena Grange “sponcers” Brooks Bar-B-Q. Let’s just hope they don’t “sponcer” a spelling bee any time soon! And who is the illiterate bumpkin at the Ravena Grange Hall who posted the announcement?

Now which of you geniuses wrote the text for the sign?

Now which of you geniuses wrote the text for the sign?

The fact that the sign is even there, still there and has been there for all to see proves one thing: You’re all ignorant and brain-dead, and you want the entire world to know it! You should be mortified that no-one until now has come forward to demand that the sign be corrected or removed!

Enjoy your Brooks Bar-B-Q. Or maybe you should invest what you’d spend on toxic food on a cheap dictionary. But then the Brooks Bar-B-Q fundraiser might be to raise funds to teach standard English spelling in RCS schools. Perhaps we’ve been too hasty?

Bruno Doesn’t Realize He’s Not Mayor Anymore: Asking for donations for centennial!

You have to admit, ex-mayor of Ravena, John T. Bruno, may have old-man balls but he does have a big pair. In fact, he’s got the balls to have sent out a letter to Ravena residents begging for money to fund the Bruno-Warren-Deluca centennial events, events conjured up by his crooked administration and the crooks he surrounded himself with.

BRUNO'S GOT A PAIR

BRUNO’S GOT A PAIR

Ex-mayor of the village of Ravena, John T. Bruno, recently sent out an undated letter to Ravena residents in which he acts as though he were still mayor of Ravena. Poor senile bastard is having a hard time letting go of his office keys and doesn’t know that technically he’s not mayor any more and has to start cooling his rejected jets. What’s even more pitiful is that Bruno doesn’t seem to realize that the jig is up! The world knows about his corruption and his crooked administration, and about his lackeys Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca, both of whom are going to be back on the street, but who also can’t seem to grasp that their days in village hall are numbered. They still think that they have Bruno’s threats and strongarm tactics to keep them in their playpens at taxpayer expense.

While Nancy Warner is a trustee and should be doing her job for which she was elected, she’s got her hooked nose in everything else. But that’s Nancy Warner, never could mind her own business. But now that her pimp is out of office, she’s going to be very lonely—she’s already kissing and cudling up to mayor-elect Bill Misuraca, hoping to cast off the Bruno stench and make new allies. If mayor-elect Misuraca falls for it he’s going to be a disappointment. Clean house completely Misuraca. Take no prisoners. Leave one standing and you’ll find the knife in your back. Look what happened in New Baltimore with the leftovers from the O’Rorke gang!

And what’s Cathy Deluca doing chairing a centennial committee when her playpen, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center can’t get enough members to break even? Why isn’t she concentrating every minute of every day ensuring that Ravena taxpayer’s hard-earned dollars are paying off? Of course not, Deluca’s a greedy bitch who gets her rocks off grabbing everything in sight, contaminating it with Deluca stench, and then leaving it to die a slow death, while she does the cellulite jiggle all the way to the bank! Now after she’s done her damage with the support of ex-mayor John Bruno and his bitch, Nancy Warner, Deluca wants to manage the centennial celebrations down to hell and beyond, putting her stamp on it. Our question is this: What’s in it for Cathy Deluca. There has to be something to steal or grab somewhere!

So we really had to rush to the bathroom when we read this part of the Bruno begging letter (read or download the entire letter New letter from Bruno WTF[2]):

As you can imagine planning and coordinating all of these activities require a lot of effort on the part of a number of volunteers. In addition to the effort needed to provide these activities it also requires that some additional money is spent to bring this celebration to our community. The village Board has made provision in its budget to meet some of these costs, but we cannot let all of the cost fall to the taxpayers. Some of the events, such as the Gala will allow us to charge a ticket fee to attend. However others such as the Parade and are true community events and no fee can or will be charged. With this in mind we are seeking sponsors to assist us in meeting the costs of this once in a lifetime celebration.

Bruno continues to think that village of Ravena taxpayers and residents are as stupid as they were two years ago, before this blog started exposing the crooks and their vile corruption. The proposed budget for 2014-15 includes $11,000 for “Celebrations” (page 9, item 7550.44). In the Adjusted Budget for 2013-14, $6,000 was allocated for “celebrations,” and while we can’t remember any “celebrations” we do remember some events associated with the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center that were probably paid for with that “celebrations” money. So add about $6,000 to the $105,000 already allocated to Cathy Deluca’s playpen, because we didn’t see any celebrations last year in Ravena.

And then Bruno goes on to talk about how the village needs “Sponsors” to cover the cost of the centennial celebrations. You really want to laugh out loud when you read this crap because if Bruno hadn’t done his best to drive residents and business out of Ravena, he wouldn’t have to beg for sponsors. They’d be there on Main Street! Ask Mr Nunziato (Halfway House) about that!

But this paragraph really makes you sick to your stomach:

 For additional information on the events or if you are interested in working with the committee on any of the other events please contact, Committee Chair Cathy Deluca at the Ravena Health and Fitness Center at Village Hall , 15 Mountain Road, Ravena, NY 12143,518,756.5544 or ravhf@mhcable.com

Can you believe this, Spock?

Can you believe this, Spock?

What a slap in the face of Ravena residents and taxpayers! He’s shoving Cathy Deluca and the Ravena Health and Fitness Center down residents’ throats as “Committee Chair” of the centennial events! Let’s make this suggestion to Mr Bruno: Cathy Deluca has milked the village of Ravena for $30,000 a year plus benefits. The word on the street is that Bruno handed Cathy Deluca a playpen called the Ravena Health and Fitness Center as a reward for some favors done by her or her husband, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, a former employee of the Coeymans police department. We can’t even start to imagine the corruption that was going on to get Cathy Deluca another health club to run and fail. Then Bruno and his monkeys on the Ravena village board spent more than $40,000 in taxpayer dollars on used fitness equipment bought from a friend of Village Hall, and allocated more than $105,000 in the 2013-14 village budget to run Cathy Deluca’s playpen, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. The 2014-15 proposed budget allocates another more than $105,000 to run the Fitness Center and even gives Cathy Deluca a $900 pay raise. We don’t understand this waste of taxpayer money for several reasons: (1) the Fitness Center is losing money, (2) the Fitness Center isn’t getting members to offset the cost of running it, (3) the 2014-15 proposed budget actually shows that the Fitness Center is expected to operate more than $50,000 in the red in 2014-15, (4) the Village Proposed Budget for 2014-15 shows that the Village doesn’t expect the Fitness Center to break even in the budget period, (5) the Fitness Center doesn’t pay any rent to the Village for the space it occupies, nor is there any evidence it pays for utilities or for insurance. So here’s our suggestion to Mr ex-mayor John Bruno when he writes that he needs money for the community celebration of the 100 years of incorporation of the Village of Ravena:

    • Fire Cathy Deluca and you’ll save at least $30,000 more for the celebrations
    • Close the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and you’ll save at least another $50,000-$105,000
    • Sell the used fitness equipment you purchased from Bob Fisk for $40,000 and you’ll probably have to go in the hole to cover the costs of carting the junk equipment away
    • Get rid of the Ravena Village Court and you’ll save at least $85,000 (Hal Warner’s salary is $15,948 and the justice clerk makes more than $40,000; the part-time clerk makes more than $12,000. That’s more than $67,000 in savings right there!)
    • Return some of the money your administration has either stolen or squandered or paid to insiders (did we mention Michael Biscone or Gregory Teresi?) and we could probably renovate all of Main Street, Ravena, and have plenty to spare!

 Now there’s a sensible plan for funding the community celebrations that Mr Bruno’s feeble-minded letter does not propose. Ravena voters have taken a major step in the direction of revitalizing the Village of Ravena without having to resort to begging: Voters got rid of John Bruno, Martin Case, and Rocco Persico. There’s still a lot of pest control to be done in Ravena Village Hall and voters can clean up Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey in the next elections, or they could avoid the embarassment and humiliation of losing the elections by simply resigning now. Mayor-elect Misuraca and the new Village board majority can take the bull by the horns and clean up the rest of the dead wood and garbage in Village Hall and eliminate the money pits like Cathy Deluca’s playpen and Nancy and Hal Warner’s playpen, the Ravena Village Court. That would be a really good start.

Maybe if Bruno and his Coeymanazi friends hadn’t persecuted, harassed, and intimidated the Greater Coeymans Ravena Area Community Business Group and the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center things might have turned out less noxious and maybe even a bit rosier. But …
