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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dentists must commit time to listen without interruption

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

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

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

listen to new dental patients

Listen to new dental patients

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A dissatisfied customer tells about 28 people.

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

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

Bruno, Deluca, Warner Squirming to Cover It Up

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center Has Become a Monkey on the Backs of Co-Conspirators and Crooks Ravena Mayor John Bruno, Center-Manager-Appointee Cathy Deluca, and Give-the-Library-an-Eviction-Notice Nancy Biscone-Warner

Mayor Bruno, Cathy Deluca, Nancy Warner, Marty Case are All Squirming to Find a Way out of the Pickle They're In.

Mayor Bruno, Cathy Deluca, Nancy Warner, Marty Case are All Squirming to Find a Way out of the Pickle They’re In.

Marlene McTigue and the Ravena News Herald owe this community some honesty. McTigue and the News Herald have to stop deceiving their subscribers with lies and cover-up stories. The Ravena Health and Fitness story is deceptive and misleading. It makes a feeble attempt to make something very bad look pretty good. It’s not and McTigue and the News Herald have to tell the truth, not cover up the lies!

So it goes with the Official Ravena-Coeymanazi Gazette, the Ravena News Herald and local News Herald editor, Marlene McTigue continues the unethical News Herald tradition of misinformation.(Yes. It’s the same Marlene McTigue who put her 5th-grade daughter, Maddie, up to plug the teachers union’s misinformation tactic that failed re: the 2013-14 RCS school budget—despite Matt Miller, Jerry Deluca, and a gaggle of teachers the 2% tax levy passed, defeating their proposed 3.5+%), is right there to misinform the public and to try to haul Bruno’s, Deluca’s and Warner’s arses out of the mess they’ve gotten themselves into with this travesty of community expense, the Ravena Fitness Center!

We’ve reported previously on how Mayor John Bruno and Nancy Biscone-Warner, together with Marty Case and Cathy Deluca, met behind closed doors to hatch this latest idiotic abuse of public office and scam, the Ravena Fitness Center. Ran out and spent some $40,000 of taxpayer money on used fitness equipment and forged ahead with their little scam without a single public hearing, no public comment, and keeping taxpayers and local residents absolutely in the dark.

We recently reported that the Ravena fitness Center is forecast to cost Ravena taxpayers more than $150,000 in 2014. That while the tax base is dwindling, storefronts continue to be boarded up, residential properties have lost value, and everyone’s trying to avoid getting swallowed up by monster potholes! That’s the Mayor John Bruno legacy for Ravena’s upcoming centennial.

The article appearing in the April 25, 2013, Ravena News Herald, “Ravena Health and Fitness Center gearing up to hit the ground running,” penned by Marlene McTigue, avoids all mention of the crookery that is going on, and paints an overly rosey picture of this public scam.

Recall, dear readers, that we frequently throw out the term Coeymanazis, Incest Club, and Teachers Clique. All of these are intimately related: The Coeymanazis are headed by the Deluca pair, Cathy and Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, who are very closely associated with the teachers clique (a failing bunch of hypocrites on the RCS CSD board of education), who are beholding to outed double-dipper teachers union rep “Matt-the-Mutt” Miller, who is the local lackey for the New York State United Teachers union (NYSUT) in the RCS district. And who do you think is very, very close friendly-like with Matt-the-Mut Miller? It’s  Mary Partridge-Brown of the elect lawyer n0-show-at-board-meetings Peter E. Brown gang.

Now let’s connect the dots on the Ravena village council with the dots on the Ravena Health and Fitness Center scam artists. Here we have Marlene McTigue of the Ravena News Herald painting a pretty picture of Mayor John Bruno’s heroic act of “repurposing” the RCS Community Library space, to create a useless waste of money, a fitness center. Just what Ravena needs. Right? And we then have Cathy Deluca, wife of loudmouth, now pretty much disgraced, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, a much disliked thug on the Coeymans police, a.k.a. Bobo Cop, and keeper of DoDo Cop, Gregory Darlington. Cathy Deluca is typically making nice while she’s conniving to screw someone or the entire community; hubby BoBo Dirty-Hands Jerry is usually waddling around playing law enforcement or mouthing off some nonsense at a school board meeting.

The good news is that recently people in the community are starting to wake up and think. They’re starting to question the lies and misinformation; they’re starting to fight back. Since last year, Matt Miller has lost a lot of credibility in his own circles. First he was fired from his double-dipping “energy manager” position for which he was soaking the district for $18,000 in addition to his teacher salary of about $80,000. He tried to badmouth Dr Alan R. McCartney and prevent his being hired to be RCS CSD superintendent. That failed. He tried to get a board member RK removed from the school board. That failed. His most recent shameful defeat was his failure and Jerry Deluca’s failure to force the school board to accept a more than 3.5% increase in the tax levy; they lost that battle, too, when the board passed Dr McCartney’s 2.0% budget. There’s nothing positive about those people and the only thing you can depend on them to do is to take care of themselves. Just like Cathy Deluca is doing: padding her nest with taxpayer money, $30,000 of  it. We see right through them. Can’t you?

Are ya still with me? We have already identified Marlene McTigue as being in league with the teachers and the teachers union rep, Matt-the-Mutt Miller, and having put her 5th-grade daughter up to plug the teachers outlandish demand for a tax levy increase. But the plot thickens even more if you’re following this, because the teacher on the Ravena village council and social studies teacher at the high school, Marty Case, chimes in obliviously, obviously trying to cover up the sting of public outrage:

“We’re going to be getting a new fitness center and a new library, healthy bodies, healthy minds, it will be a great thing for our community.” (Marty Case, village councilman)

What we need are some “healthy minds” on the village council, the town board. Never mind the “healthy bodies.” The idiot seems to have forgotten that the entire behind-closed-doors conspiracy could just land Mr Case jobless and censured by the NYSED for his involvement in allegedly illegal activity. He also failed to mention the fact that the library’s rent was raised some $600 a month by the village of Ravena because the library couldn’t occupy the new location because Rocco Persico’s (Ravena village council member) cousin, Donny Persico, was delayed in getting a bank loan to finish the remodeling of the location. By the way, that $600 a month increase comes out of the library’s budget, RCS and New Baltimore property  taxpayer monies. Nope. That wasn’t mentioned in the McTigue article either.

Are you still with me? Be patient. Now, Nancy Warner is a Biscone, a cousin to shyster Michael Biscone of Ravena village attorney infamy. Nancy Warner has also been village of Ravena treasurer for about 25-30 years but can’t seem to keep the books straight (Remember the state audit last year and its scathing assessment of Ravena accounting, rather lack of it) nor keep Mayor John Bruno aware of his financial responsibilities under the law (Remember his unforgettable statement, “I didn’t know…”).  Then there’s Cathy Deluca, who managed one failed fitness center in Ravena, and now has been hand-picked to manage the next failed fitness center in Ravena: the Ravena Health and Fitness Center.

 One thing I have to hand to McTigue, she got the wording perfectly when she writes:

“Newly appointed Fitness Center Director Cathy Deluca said ‘We’re ready to hit the ground running…'”

Couldn’t have chosen the words more perfectly, “newly appointed fitness center director Cathy Deluca.” Yes, Cathy, you’d damned well better “hit the ground running,” especially when the investigations start up. And we’ll make sure they do start up (we’re filing a complaint with the Secretary of State and the Office of the State Attorney General demanding an investigation of the village of Ravena’s creation of the Health and Fitness Center. We’d like you to support that effort but more on that later).

Reality is Reality. Truth is Truth.

Reality is Reality.
Truth is Truth.

A Hippo in Tights is Still a Hippo!

Cathy Deluca is quoted as having “more than 20 years of experience in the fitness industry.” I’m really sorry, Cathy, but seriously. When’s the last time you or Jerry looked in a mirror that could get all of you in on one shot? Reality is reality. Truth is truth. We don’t buy your “20 years of experience in the fitness industry” crap. Like let’s have some serious disclosure here. Let’s have a list of the places where you’ve gotten all those 20 years of experience (not wiping down equipment or cruising the showers, now, real management experience).

We are calling on all residents of Ravena to see through the smoke screen and demand accountability and transparency. It’s your money they’re spending and they’re spending it without your consent. You need to call them out at the next village meeting and ask questions like:

  • When did you put this out for public comment?
  • When did you hold a public meeting to hear our opinions?
  • When did you ask us if you could spend the $40,000 on used equipment?
  • When did you ask us for inputs on the forecast more than $150,000 in the proposed budget for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center?
  • Where is the business plan for the center?
  • Who is paying for all of the banners and website promotional material already out there?
  • Who authorized the “appointment” of Cathy Deluca to be the “director” of the illegal fitness center, and who decided to pay her $30,000 a year of your money?
  • What are Deluca’s credentials to manage the center and who reviewed and approved them? We want to see her 20 years experience on paper, documentable!
  • What studies were done to determine whether a fitness center will survive in this area, or even is wanted (apart from Bruno’s “vision”, Deluca’s and Warner’s sweet-talking, we have NOTHING in the way of planning or ensuring the best interests of the public’s monies)?
  • In short, if the questions above are not clearly, honestly, convincingly answered: Whose heads will roll first?

    You Need to Ask: What's Going On?!?>/big>

    You Need to Ask: What’s Going On?!?

Residents, taxpayers! Haven’t you had your fill of a certain bunch of insiders doing what they please in their own interests. Haven’t they almost destroyed this community and this area with their lousy attitudes, their self-appointed privileges, their privileged cliques, their thievery? We need to ask questions and get answers. If we don’t do it now, maybe the government will step in and do it for us? Is that what you’d want?

The rumor is now that in order to save face, Bruno, Deluca, Warner and the rest of the conspirators are considering non-profit status, hoping to recoup some of the money they’ve wasted. Before anything goes non-profit, the questions have to be cleared up that are here and now.  Before anyone takes home $30,000 of taxpayer money, we want to know a hell of a lot or someone’s going to jail!

Waxing Whimsical: Why the US and You Have no $$$ !

We Have Been Following the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District Budget Deliberations and Reading Some of the Local Comments Lamenting Possible Cuts. Why Do We Have To Worry About These Things…?

Ever Hear of USAID?United States Agency for International Development

Ever Hear of USAID?
United States Agency for International Development

We’re getting less and less federal aid and less and less state aid. Superstorm Sandy victims had to wait more than 90 days to get any disaster aid by an act of the United States Congress. Food prices are soaring. Fuel prices are soaring. But we have billions to give away to people who do little or nothing to help themselves, who seem to thrive on war and atrocities, who are more corrupt than the Ravena, New York town hall. And we’re giving it away to people who either steal it from their own people or to people who hate the United States.

And it’s not just about foreign countries and what is going on outside of the USA. By no means. Right here at home we have a POTUS who wants to be King Obama, we have the crown prince Governor of New York, Prince Andrew Cuomo, who acts like corrupt royalty passing unconstitutional laws right under the electorate’s nose. We have a state legislature that is corrupt, indifferent, and self-serving. We have a Supreme Court giving away the People’s rights to the corporations who then turn around to beat us up with the Corporate Greed Gorilla Stick, while they and the federal government reward their immoral practices and incompetence with bailouts. And we have a Congress who rubber stamps on the one hand anything that benefits them and stymies anything that might benefit the man on the street! We pay our potential enemies both inside and outside the country! But we have billions in taxpayer dollars to give away while cutting programs and benefits at home. What a bunch of morons!

They can’t give us a minimum wage but they can take pay raises, accept premium benefits, and enjoy the high-life while we have to acquire a taste for cat food! Times have changed dramatically; the USA is no longer the Oz of the rest of the world, we are in recession, we are suffering, we are having to tighten our belts. We no longer can give generously because we have our own hungry ghosts to feed. We have not managed our own greed well enough to have anything left to share.

foreign_aid_infographic

You might well ask!

You might well ask!
Or we could ask our elected officials!

Yeah. I thought I’d ask that question myself. Here are some very interesting bits of information and some places to go to read more:

Israel got more than $3.075 billion (that’s close enough to $3.1 billion) in 2012.
Israel’s special relationship with the United States pays off when it comes to foreign aid. The Jewish state has long been a top recipient of foreign aid, receiving nearly $3.1 billion in 2012.  We have to ask Why? when its loudmouth leader, Bibi Netanyahu (Wotayahoo) badmouths the US on a regular basis. And, besides, King Obama loathes him (but Obama loathes everyone not Obama) (Source: U.S. Foreign Aid By Country at Huffington Post)

Israel is currently the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign aid since World War II.

To date, the United States has provided Israel $115 billion in bilateral assistance. It is currently the second largest recipient of aid worldwide, with Afghanistan now first.

The fiscal year 2013 budget request “includes $3.1 billion in Foreign Military Financing [FMF] for Israel and $15 million for refugee resettlement. Within the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Missile Defense Agency’s FY2013 budget request includes $99.8 million in joint U.S.-Israeli co-development for missile defense.” (Source: U.S. Foreign Aid to Israel: 2012 Congressional Report at Journalists Resource)

You can get an overview of the top 20 countries receiving USAID and the programs receiving money in spreadsheet (Microsoft Excel)  at USAID Where Does The Money Go? (USAID Where Does The Money Go?) But the really troubling part of this story is this is only what the government is making public. It doesn’t even consider the covert programs. And it doesn’t include the operating expenses of the agency nor the wages and salaries or benefits paid to the government employees administering the foreign aid agency!

So, before you start badmouthing the local board of education or bitching about your property taxes, you might want to ask your legislators: Where does the money go?

Lost our homes, no disaster relief, can't afford food, no healthcare.The New American Reality!

Losting our jobs, losing  our homes, no disaster relief, can’t afford food, no healthcare.
The New American Reality!

We can and should ask our state and local elected officials Why? are we seeing our rates go up Up UP and our local, state, federal, and unions putting the overspending on the 99% of taxpayers who are carrying the burden. Why?

Do you wonder now why they want to take away your guns?

Maybe we should keep some for ourselves, at home?The Editor

Albany County DA David Soares: Censured Blowhard

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

Soares’ Reputation Doesn’t Do Much Soaring, According To The Media.

In Fact, It Soars Like A Turd In A Thunderstorm!

The Montana Flying Turd Bird Lands
In the Albany DA’s Office

Soares is running for re-election this year. His opponent, fellow Democrat Lee Kindlon, said in a statement this censure is “the tip of an iceberg of recklessness, mismanagement, and bad judgment that will end up costing Albany County taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.”

Our Little Friend Albany County DA P. David Soares Appears To Have A Pretty Soiled Record When It Comes To His Professional And Private Misconduct. Here Are Just A Few Of The Tidbits Among The Many We Discovered.

Soares Mugshot

The public really needs to be aware of some of the incompetence and misconduct that our chief law enforcement officer in the county has to own up to while the hypocrite is prosecuting others.

Soares’ recently was censured by the courts for his inappropriate remarks about a judge and had to make a groveling apology.  An appeals court says in 2010 Soares made “reckless and misleading” comments about Albany County Judge Stephen Herrick. After Judge Herrick assigned a special prosecutor to Soares’ investigation of steroid distribution in Albany County, Soares issued a press release saying the judge created a “dangerous loophole” for defendants.
Now, a state appeals court says Soares’ comments went too far. Soares said he accepts the court’s decision–That’s damned decent of Soares, isn’t it?– but is looking forward. Forward to What? Hopefully not re-election in Albany county!

This was the third timeSoares has been reprimanded for making statements on pending cases. Censure is a form of public discipline meted out by the courts to punish attorneys,  and this most recent one follows two earlier disciplinary actions that reprimanded  Soares for making “improper and prejudicial public statements regarding pending criminal matters,” the appeals court noted. Soares just can’t keep his fat mouth shut, it seems.

Soares is running for re-election this year. His opponent, fellow Democrat Lee Kindlon, said in a statement this censure is “the tip of an iceberg of recklessness, mismanagement, and bad judgment that will end up costing Albany County taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.” (Source: News 10 report http://www.news10.com/story/18619027/judicial-censure-for-albany-county-da-david-soares. There’s a video of Soares eating crow on the site. See also “A state appeals court has censured Albany County District Attorney David Soares for making “reckless and misleading” remarks about an Albany judge who assigned his office’s high-profile steroids case to a special prosecutor in 2010” in Appeals panel censures David Soares, saying remarks about judge “reckless” by Robert Gavin (Friday, May 25, 2012) http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Court-disciplines-DA-3582767.php#ixzz20zhGeDrp)

Saratoga Politics writes “Mr. Kindlon is an impressive fellow. Lee Kindlon is the son of the prominent Albany defense lawyer Terence L. Kindlon as well as a Marine and Iraq war veteran, Kindlon is running against the baggage laden Albany County District Attorney David Soares in a Democratic primary.  (Read Lee Kindlon’s bio at http://www.kindlon.com/lkindlon.html, read position on issues at http://www.leekindlon.com/)

Lee Kindlon
Ex-Marine & Historian

Soares has more enemies than I do, including New York’s immensely popular Governor Andrew Cuomo.

According to Saratoga Politics, “During the Occupy Albany movement, Cuomo had repeatedly requested publicly that the 11 p.m. curfews in both Lafayette Park and Academy Park be enforced. Soares stanchly refused, infuriating not only the governor but many politicians from all over the state. Well known radio host…Fred Dicker went on to blast Soares almost daily.”

Soares has also been criticized for his bizarre prosecution of defendants from Florida for selling steroids to residents of Albany County through the mail. A case that is widely viewed as nothing but a self-serving publicity stunt by Soares.

Soares’ doesn’t seem to acknowledge any boundaries and can’t keep it in his pants even at work: Soares also has acknowledged a longstanding intimate relationship with a junior female staffer whose siblings have been prosecuted on multiple occasions by his office.

And now we have his relationship with NXIVM and Keith Ranier’s favorite gun moll and femme fatale Kristen Keeffe. Now Kindlon is calling on the Attorney General to investigate NXIVM’s (see Secrets of NXIVM) and Kristen Keeffe’s role in trying to set up Joe O’Hara. (The documents are available on the Saratoga Politics site. Visit the Saratoga Politics site for the complete story at http://saratogaindecline.blogspot.com/2012/02/well-i-drove-on-down-to-albany-today-to.html)  This is the story of professional misconduct and mishandling of sealed court documents (see Saratoga Politics at http://saratogaindecline.blogspot.com/2012/02/well-lee-kindlon-followed-his-right.html). And this is the Albany County DA? Come on, this dog’s gotta go and fast!

Get this! Soares’ piece of fluff went on leave of absence and then turns up with a new job (no doubt thanks to her boyfriend in the DA’s office, the DA himself). Soares’s girlfriend lands new county job. The Times Union reports that the staffer who David Soares is boinking gets transfered out of his office in wake of controversy and lands a new county job. (Read the story by Jordan Carleo-Evangelist and Robert Gavin at http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/DA-s-girlfriend-lands-new-county-job-3574940.php#ixzz20zgyjKNS)

In a Times Union report, “Fired DA’s aide gets job back: Albany County official will get back pay after ruling citing jurisdictional issue,” by Robert Gavin appearing on June 1, 2012, we learn that a former top aide to Albany County District Attorney David Soares who was fired in the wake of a scathing county audit has his old job back, a state appeals court announced Thursday.

“In over 130 petty cash audits during the past 121/2 years,” the audit stated, “our office has never encountered the problems with basic bookkeeping, accounting and petty cash account management that the director of administration for the office of the district attorney presents.”

Now that’s comforting. Here the Albany County DA is passing out checks all over the place, including to the Coeymans Police (we all know how that happened, don’t we?), and he’s got auditors crawling all over him and his staff for accounting irregularities! Nice going. Look’s like we have a case of the fox keeping the chickens; this is the guy who’s supposed to be prosecuting the crooks but Guess what! The biggest crook might be the prosecutor himself!

Now the connections are more than obvious and maybe we should demand a state independent audit of the Coeymans Police Department’s handling of cash, especially petty cash. Do you seriously think that they’d come off squeaky clean? If you do, I still have that bridge to sell you!

What’s worse, is that a major player in the RCS crime drama is Thomas E. Dolan, none other than the same Thomas E. Dolan who is the Town of Coeymans Town Board Liaison to the Coeymans Police who have so many cozy connections with our incredible Albany County DA’s office, and who recently received more than $18 grand in a gift check from Soares! Dolan is running for state legislative office–what that means is that the RCS mafia will then have a complete circuit from their next in Ravena-Coeymans to the New York state legislature! That’s gotta be stopped and stopped now! Can you imagine the corruption, intimidation, coercion, retaliation that would materialize when the Coeymanazis have a mole in the state legislature!?! That needs to be investigated and like YESTERDAY!

Are you listening Mr Lee Kindlon?

The secretary with whom DA David Soares has a romantic relationship has transferred out of the district attorney’s office and has been given a new post as a legal secretary in the county’s Department of Human Resources, according to county spokeswoman Mary Rozak, spokesperson for the county, who adds that Stacey Quackenbush’s (Soares’ piece of fluff) new post is a civil service job (does that mean she has to take a testicle…I mean a test?) and pays $37,108.

Caught with his pants down (no pun intended) Soares first insisted this whole situation was no big deal and not really anybody’s business, calling the revelation of the relationship by Albany Citizen One, “clearly a political effort to malign my reputation for the simple reason that my record as Albany County district attorney is one that I am proud of.” Yeah, you’re the county’s chief law enforcement officer, an elected public figure, in charge of prosecuting citizens, held to a higher standard, and your sleezy misconduct is none of our business? Maybe that’s how it works off the coast of Africa, in your native Cape Verde islands, but we have different standards here, Mr Soares! It is our business how you behave, Hypocrite!

Finally, Soares acknowledges his sordid  relationship with the staffer, calls revelation ‘political effort to malign my reputation’ and claims that politics are the reason a report surfaced that he has been romantically involved with an office staffer. But he doesn’t deny the unethical sexual a relationship, and is so arrogant and brazen he says it’s no one’s business. According to Mr Soares, “This issue is a personal issue,” Soares said in a statement on Saturday. “It is not newsworthy and certainly not appropriate for public debate or discussion.” (See the entire piece at http://blog.timesunion.com/localpolitics/10559/soares-acknowledges-relationship-with-staffer-calls-revelation-political-effort-to-malign-my-reputation/). You don’t need any help “maligning your reputation,” Mr Soares, you’re doing just fine on your own. Keep it up (again, no pun intended)!

Speaking of Africa, the African American community in Albany has lost all respect for their once darling David Soares; he received a thrashing at the African American community recently when he defended the Albany Police shooting of a Black teenager, Nah-Cream Moore.

Even African Americans
Are Skeptical of Him

In a report by Bryan Fitzgerald, “Skeptical crowd grills DA: Soares fields questions in police shooting of teen; few like answers,” in the March 30, 2012, Times Union, Soares defended the results of a grand jury review into the police shooting of Nah-Cream Moore, and he faced an often jeering combative crowd — with some people storming out of the South End meeting on that Thursday night. (Read the full report at http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Skeptical-crowd-grills-DA-3445948.php#ixzz20zjldLI1). Soares got a good ass-kicking from his own people! Is the African American community finally seeing through this self-interested politico?

There’s tons of adverse information on our darling (Oh! Did I almost write Darlington, our own Coeymanazi police chief’s wife, Leah Darlington is Soares’secretary and a familiar name in Ravena-Coeymans, Louis Neri, a former partner of John T. Biscone, is a defender in Soares’ office, and Ravena village justice Harold Warner’s daughter is also employed by Soares’ office; get’s cozier by the minute, doesn’t it?) just try visiting “Three Count Indictment of David Soares”  (http://soarestruthandtips.typepad.com/soarestruth/2012/01/index.html) or “The Goods on David Soares” http://soarestruthandtips.typepad.com/soarestruth/2012/04/the-goods-on-david-soares.html) or even “The Observation Deck-A blog of opinions on local, state and national issues” (Times Union) Category: David Soares (http://blog.timesunion.com/opinion/category/david-soares/)

Here’s another apetizing tidbit on our wonderful DA: “Albany County DA Let Pedophile Cult Borrow His Subpoena Power” by Max Paige-Vieux (March 7, 2012) Paige-Vieux writes, “…the Albany Times Union series on NXIVM—Keith Raniere’s self-empowerment “technology” company—will totally move your eyebrows. Your effing eyebrows will never be the same again. It’s got everything: money, power, Joe Bruno, multilevel-marketing scams, gross kid touching, the heirs to the Seagrams family fortune, Ayn Rand novels, dumb language borrowed from Scientology, lawsuits, the 1980’s arcade game Vanguard, everything.” And continues, “The big political fallout from the story is going to rest squarely on Albany DA David Soares, who is up for reelection soon and whose opponent in the race, Lee Kindlon, is already using the Times Union series as a cudgel against him. The gist is that Soares allowed one of Raniere’s top NXIVM lieutenants, Kristin Keeffe, to use the resources of the district attorney’s office to build a case against a NXIVM whistleblower, Joseph O’Hara. Keeffe (whose name I am spelling correctly, believe it or not) then spent several weeks allegedly abusing the grand jury process, drafting subpoenas, preparing exhibits and then secreting some of this juicy material to NXVIM’s lawyers.” (See the rest at http://newyorkjournal.org/2012/03/albany-county-da-let-pedophile-cult-borrow-his-subpoena-power/)

That’s not all. Capital Tonight reports, “Albany Co. DA Soares Responds to Criticism. The Albany County District Attorney’s office plays a unique role in monitoring state lawmakers. But right now, it’s the current DA who is under fire from his primary opponent over the case against Personal Growth Company NXIVM. District Attorney David Soares says he stands by his handling of that case and the rest of his record. (http://capitaltonightny.ynn.com/2012/02/albany-co-da-soares-responds-to-criticism/).

That’s all just a sampling from the mainstream media. There is some pretty scary stuff out there about Soares but it’s a bit too crazy–we’re not saying it’s untrue, just crazy–and we don’t have the space here to reproduce it. Take our word for it, the guy’s a sleeze and an animal! Just the kind of guy you want supervising law enforcement…and you wonder why we’re stuck with Coeymanazis? Re-elect David Soares and watch it get worse!

Gotcha, Soares!
Get Yer Hands…Pants…Up!

The Editor

Editor’s Apology: We’d like to apologize for referring to so many reports that appear in the Times Union newspaper (a.k.a. Albany Times Useless). This does not mean that we are endorsing that corrupt rag but it does have some great stuff on Albany County DA, and we haven’t been able to find any false facts in those articles, which appear to be supported by other, independent sources.  Not part of an apology, but you may also want to visit the blog, “Soares Spot” that publishes only information on David Soares in sordid detail  (http://soarestruthandtips.typepad.com/soarestruth/2012/02/index.html).

Special Notice: We make every effort to be truthful, complete, fair, and balanced on this blog; therefore, if you see anything that you know to be false or incorrect, or if you have additional information to clarify any issue, please let us know by e-mailing your information or by leaving a comment. It’s very important to us that we don’t fall into the same category as those whom this blog is intended to expose. Thank you very much in advance for your cooperation and assistance!
 

The Community Opportunity for Dialogue

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

The Inaugural Session of the Board of Education on July 10th Was An Encouraging Sign that Common Sense and the Common Good Will Take the Lead

It Usually Takes Someone To Set the Fire

Another note that was struck was that the board of education has an important role to play as a committee of role models, and so its members each have the role as educators. This is a very important point to bear in mind and one that, if each of the board members keeps that educator role in focus and is guided by it, may generate some very promising results. You can actually set the example of a model community, of exemplary coöperation, of dialogue, even of productivity. Try it!

A word to the RCS community, too: Stop the bitching and whining! Perhaps once, just once some of you could approach the commentors’ podium and present an olive branch instead of a battle-axe! Perhaps instead of a steady stream of “I’m disappointed” or “You board members…” or any of the other now clichéed and ungrateful–Yes! ungrateful –and childish whining that has characterized the public comment segments, you could just get up and say “Thank you! You’re doing your best and we appreciate the time and effort you are putting into your mandates!”  Instead, most of you have simply been casting gasoline on a brush fire and then complain that all you’re getting is smoke. First of all you elected the board members to represent you and they are trying to do so. Second, they are doing it pro bono, for no pay, because they have a sincere interest in the community. Most of them can never hope to derive any benefit whatsoever from the time and work they put in. (As most readers will know, I hold a very different opinion of the motivations of the teachers and teachers’ spouses on the board.) And then they have to take your crap besides. Stop it! And try being grateful!

Cockroach or Coeymanazi?

For once in a very great while, the nay-sayers and ne’re-do-gooders were not present at the meeting in their force. It was a peaceful meeting without the Coeymanazis (though I would not deny even the Coeymanazis the privilege of attending, on condition they can manage to act like civilized adults instead of syphilized cockroaches), and in most respects it proceeded fairly orderly. There were the few exceptions but they’re in the minority now.

The citizen/resident side of the aisle, if you’ll allow me to differentiate the sides in that way, continues to be sincere, respectful, and courteous. Wouldn’t it be great if the sneering contrary teachers clique would do the same? Their performance complete with the usual downtalk, accusations, insults and arrogance is or should be a thing of the past. It’s time now Mr Engel, Mr Latter, Mr Reville, Ms Whalen to stop the lockstepping, to stop the arrogant know-it-all downtalking, to put aside the accusations, and start collaborating, cooperating and consensus building. (Also, if you think someone should resign, do it yourself!)  You don’t have a majority anymore and it’s unlikely, given the people you’ve been hanging out with and with whom you’ve formed your failing alliances, that you ever will again have the upper hand. So, little darlings, little pets, start being nicer if you expect to get anything done.

All eyes, especially ours, are watching very closely and we don’t miss much. Make nice and do good for your own goods and for the good of the community. (And put away the matches, please!)

Cooperate, Collaborate, Communicate!

Trailer Trash In A Double-Wide

Somehow It Seems Appropriate That the Coeymans Town Administration and Police Department Should be Housed in What Appears to Be A Converted Cargo Container or An Oversized Double-Wide Trailer

Town Of Coeymans
Town Hall

It’s also not surprising that search as I may, I just can’t find a photo or an image of the Coeymans Town Trailer? Can it be that it’s such a gem of the Hudson Valley, such an Objet d’Art that they need to keep it a secret?

Or is it, more accurately, because it’s such a den of corruption and iniquity that only those poor bastards unfortunate enough to have to appear there and be humiliated by the ignorant but arrogant town justices, an ex-cop and a former cafeteria manager, or abused by the hirelings of Coeyman’s police department chief Gregory Darlington and his troupe of  sadist pervert investigators and Albany PD rejects (McKenna and Johnson, included). I’d go for this latter option.

Moreover, it’s really unfair to even use the term “trailer trash” when discussing the town hall thugs. Trash they are but it’s doing a terrible injustice to those poor persons whom the elite disparagingly call “trailer trash.” There’s plenty of so-call “trailer trash” who would put the community élite to abject shame in terms of morality, virtues, values, and ethics. So, understand that I am using the term “trailer trash” in it’s most literal form, not in the manner that the hypocrites might use it to disparage persons less fortunate than themselves.

Now That I Have Your Undivided Attention…

That may at first blush sound pretty uncharitable and it probably is if you don’t think about it. But that’s the problem: You simply don’t THINK about things; more accurately, you don’t REFLECT on things, and you really ought to.

It’s only natural… that when someone comes and stirs up the scum in your pool you’re going to get pissed because the scum is stirred up, not because you were negligent and didn’t do what was necessary, the work, to keep it clean. Same thing for your community.

It’s only natural…that when you find that someone is pointing out your fat ass, and mentioning that it means trouble for your overall health that you become indignant at being called “fat,” and curse the person for the insult. But you know you’re fat and you know you eat unhealthfully and you know you don’t exercise enough but still, he called you “fat.” Same thing for your community, you know what’s wrong but you decide to live with it, deny it, work around it, and then you’re pissed because someone tells you something’s wrong and that you can fix it…if you care to.

It’s only natural… that you should all rise up and complain: “All teachers aren’t greedy!” Or “All teachers aren’t bullies, there are some very good ones.” You cry this out but you don’t also take into consideration that teachers, police, doctors, judges, men and women elected to public office are all in a special position in society; they want special respect but in return society holds them to a higher standard. Either they tow the mark or they go.

You want to wear crown? Well…

These privileged statuses also want to do their own dirty laundry, take care of their own. And so, when it becomes public that there are bad apples in the barrel, it becomes the task of the good apples to clean up the bad ones…or they can be included in the bad bushel, too. You want to wear the crown and wield the authority, enjoy the perks, do the dirty work guys and gals; clean up your litter boxes.

Find’em and Fix’em

It’s only natural….that because it was YOU who elected them to their privileged statuses that you will get pissed and want to kill the messenger when it becomes obvious that you or those to whom you have delegated your decision-making authority have put jerks in those power positions. But rather than kill the messenger, why don’t you bite the bullet and lay down the rules for the perps and pervs; you put them where they are and you can kick them out. Why do you let yourselves be silenced by those at the head table? Remind them that they are public servants, not tyrants!

Caught cookie-handed!

So you’ve been caught with your hand in the cookie jar?  It’s really humiliating for the crook to be found out and actually be called a crook. And it’s those types that get the angriest and the most vindictive when found out. Rather than ask forgiveness, seek reconciliation and change their ways (turn around), they retaliate. Same thing in the community: You call the crook a crook and he lashes out at everyone within reach. Low self-esteem is a very volatile condition and that’s what makes bullies, student bullies, street bullies, teacher bullies, cop bullies. But if the community were to have done its duty and if the community were to be a moral example and conduct its business ethically, Guess what!? Most of these uncomfortable situations could and would have been avoided.

Morality is a question of character; ethics is a question of what you do. If you are a liar or a cheat, that is immoral, it is a question of character: your character is who you are. Character doesn’t happen overnight, my friends, it starts as behavior that becomes habit that becomes character, the person. It is your character that governs what you do, when you do it, and why you do it. So, if your character that of a liar or a cheat, your ethics is that of lying and cheating. Your character is you; your ‘you’ doesn’t change unless you truly do something about it.

We can only hope that more Laszlo Polyaks, more Donna Pasquinis, more Ann Marie Vadneys, more Jerry Bogardis, more Pam Powells come forward and speak out like those citizen residents do on a consistent basis. Only then will this community be able to rid itself of the tyrany of the Jerry Delucas, the Gregory Darlingtons, the Donna Hommels, the McTigues, the Matt Millers, the Bartletts, the James Latters, the Josephine O’Connors. Only when the community spirited among you become the role models can you take back control of your lives, property, children; the fearful and anxious majority in this community must shake off the fear and anxiety and return to controlling your lives and your destinies.

Please don’t misunderstand what I am teaching here. I’m not calling for lynch mobs, for banning, exiling, or ostracizing anyone but what I am preaching is that some really tough love might be in order for you to forgive, not forget, and to reconcile or not to reconcile with those individuals who have blackened and darkened this community and kept you silent all these years. It’s time to call out the bullies and to discipline them; its time for fair play, justice and fairness. It’s time to put them outside the community and allow them back into the community only after their moral and ethical lesions have been cleansed and are no longer a threat of infection to the rest of us.

It’s time to teach–not just talk about–the lost values of honesty, integrity, charity, simplicity, respect, humility, and generosity, teach those values to the children you all claim to love and cherish; why then do you expose them to indoctrination, propaganda, and indecent role models? They’re your flesh and blood; you have to fill them with morality, good ethics, and love. Smiles covering fear and anxiety just won’t work; nor will convincing them that sacrifice is a bad thing. Teach them good judgment not simply judgment.

Do A Family Virtue Pick!

Listening and watching the videos of public meetings you hear trembling voices, high-pitched tension, you see downcast eyes, suspicious, defensive  body language. People these are not the signs of a happy hobbit community; these are signs you’d expect to see in a concentration camp! Look at yourselves!

When self-interest and self-preservation lock horns and complacency becomes the only coping strategy, there’s no compelling religious, spiritual, civic alternative–community evaporates and each one of you becomes an island with only the delusion of freedom in community.

We are going to give the RCS Central School District a bit of  a respite for the time being; we are going to give the community the opportunity to step up to the plate and to help itself, to file their complaints with the New York State Education Department, the Office of the Attorney General, and other authorities,  and give those authorities some time to show their colors and to do their jobs,  investigate, audit, discipline. There are fish to fry in the town hall and in the police department; we’ll busy ourselves with them in the next several weeks. Stay tuned!

Can You Explain This, Jerry?

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, As We All Know, Is an Employee of the Town of Coeymans As a so-called Police Investigator.
Or Is He?

Is This Gerald "Jerry" Deluca, Town of Coeymans Police Investigator?

Is This Gerald “Jerry” Deluca

One very basic assumption is that to be an effective forensic or police investigator, the officer must be impartial, objective, non-judgmental, and not compromised. Right? So, for some time now we have been operating in the perhaps naïve belief that Mr Gerald Deluca is an employee solely of the Coeymans Police Department as a police investigator being paid an annual salary in 2010 of $29,095 (source: FindTheData New York State Employees). Certain reports, however, piqued our curiosity and, when researching the questions, we just happened to come across some rather confusing information on Mr Deluca’s LinkedIn page. Here’s some of that confusing information…and some of the serious questions:

One of those questions is: Would you want this character to be investigating your case? With his public disrespect for a woman BoE candidate and for women in general, would you want this man investigating your case if you were a woman? Do you really think with his public affairs and special interest connections he can be objective and impartial in any investigation? Is he on the take?

According to public information Gerald “Jerry” Deluca is an employee of the Town of Coeymans, Police and Fire, and receives a salary from the Town, rather the State of New York. That position is apparently full-time.

 We find Deluca’s NYS payroll information for 201o  disclosed (source: SeeThroughNY):

SeeThroughNY Extract of State Employee Payroll 2010

 We find the same NYS payroll information for 2011 (source: SeeThroughNY):

SeeThroughNY Extract of State Employee Payroll 2011

According to Deluca’s LinkedIn profile, Deluca provides the following information:

Jerry Deluca’s LinkedIn Profile

Deluca lists his current positions, at least 5 of them, as:

  • Current Director at MSSBC (Main Street Small Business Coalition) from January 2009 to Present.
  • Executive Director at ARANY (Automotive Recyclers of New York) from September 2006 to Present.
  • Proprietor, DeLuca Public Affairs, a lobbying/influence peddling firm, from October 2005 to Present.
  • Director at Main Street Small Business Coalition for September 2005 to Present (isn’t this the MSSBC?)
  • Investigator at Town of Coeymans Police Department, from February 1982 to Present.

He also lists activity as a “legislative associate at the New York State Assembly” from 1980-1993, and “director, government and community affairs at the NYSTA (New York State Thruway Authority) from 1988-1992.

All of these positions run simultaneously with his listed job as Investigator in the Town of Coeymans Police Department which he claims he has held since 1982 to the present.

You can view his Public Profile at  http://www.linkedin.com/pub/jerry-deluca/16/56/297.

On another site, Zoominfo we find Deluca listed (Last Update on 4/18/12) as “Jerry Deluca, Executive Director of ARANY.” ARANY’s  Company Description:  The ARANY is a trade association dedicated to the professional development of the auto recycling industry in New York State. Using recycled auto parts saves consumers money and preserves the environment. The reuse of recycled parts keeps them out of the waste stream and provides body shops, repair shops, insurers and the backyard mechanic with an inexpensive alternative for original equipment manufacturers parts. ARANY, 194 Washington Avenue Suite 305, Albany, New York 12210.

Could this ARANY connection have anything to do with the scrap movements to/from the Coeymans Port? Was there $$ involved? Was Deluca involved? Was State Assembly representative Steve McLaughlin involved? Was Deluca Public Affairs involved? Can you now picture  the squirming, greedy tentacles involved in this Coeymans cop’s activities, and why he and his department are compromised?

And on ZoomInfo his employment history reads:

Employment History

  • DeLuca Public Affairs, Director of Government Relations
  • New York State Motor Truck Association
  • Executive Director MSSBC, Government Affairs Director
  • NYS Thruway Authority & Canal Corporation
  • Board Memberships and Affiliations – Chief Staff Person for the Transportation Committee
    Assembly
  • Proprietor DeLuca Public Affairs Sole Proprietorship; Myself Only; Government Relations industry

    It’s Really All About $
    Who are you kidding?

And in the ARANY Newsletter Fourth Quarter 2011 Page 5. We find Deluca posing in a group photograph and the accompanying article reads in part: “ARANY has already begun the process of working with DEC on the development of the new permit.  ARANY Executive Director Jerry DeLuca and Environmental committee Chairman Gary Beagell attended a meeting on November 3rd at DEC Headquarters along with representatives of many other industries governed by the permit. The DEC provided an overview of the process and the issues that they perceive must be addressed. Jerry was also invited to participate in a small group meeting just before Thanksgiving along with ISRI reps, and others to provide additional comments on the process. ARANY is also working with ARA environmental experts and consultants such as James Environmental to monitor the process and obtain information and comments.” (Click here for the complete newsletter with the group photo: ARANY Newsletter Current 4th Q 2011 Deluca)

In addition to all of this, Deluca appears to have been doing Board of Education work until he was booted with Cathy Long, and since has been involved in a number of local activist organizations, most recently the effort to push the 2012-13 RCS CSD budget through the vote. Isn’t it ironic that Deluca should be proprietor of a public affairs company; all of his affairs seem to be public!

All of this flurry of activity and concurrent jobs raises several troubling questions, one of which is Where is Deluca actually working? He’s getting a state payroll check from the Town of Coeymans, that we know. He’s claiming to be director at at least three other businesses at the same time, though, and claims to be proprietor at at least one, Deluca Public Affairs.

What’s more, Deluca is truly a superman, because he’s doing all of this on a political science degree from SUNY Plattsburgh (1976-1980), not a Harvard MBA or a Yale criminal justice or criminology degree but  an undergrad polisci degree from SUNY Plattsburgh!!! The guy’s gotta be a freakin’ genius, and he apparently doesn’t need to eat, sleep, socialize? Well, we all know better than that, don’t we? Anyone in the RCS community knows damned well what Deluca’s up to, where, and with whom…Need we say more?

Now, Jerry, we’re really trying to report all of this with a straight face but it’s really difficult. But we do have to ask outright: What’s the deal, Jerry? Can you explain all of this…We’re sure you can but we mean convincingly?

Yet another one?!? Mr Deluca?

Cop or Crook?
Or Schizoid?

Perhaps the Town of Coeymans Board can step in and explain away a little of this really suspicious activity. How can you be on the state payroll and a police investigator in the town of Coeymans Police Department with all of these other conflicting interests? Is this all true? If it is then a great many other questions are raised. If it’s not true, we have a credibility problem in our dear Jerry. Perhaps Chief Gregory Darlington can explain what exactly you’re doing in the Coeymans Police Department. Or maybe the Office of the NYS Comptroller or the Attorney General can explain all of this. Who has the answers, Jerry?

Would you want this guy to be assigned to your case as police investigator? And it also raises a question of whether he was or is on the take for local scrap business activities, or DEC investigations of local businesses? Stuff like this really gets the imagination running, doesn’t it?

Is there a reasonable explanation for all of this Deluca, Darlington, or do we have a bad-ass case of more corruption in the Coeymans Police Department?
