New Baltimore Town Hall on Monday, December 9, at 7:00 p.m.

Don’t Miss the Roasting of the O’Rorke Town of New Baltimore Town Board.

What's that you said, Suz?

What’s that you said, Suz?

Special Menu Items Will include Chris Norris and Lisa Benway Crispy Critters in a Brown Sauce!

Lame-duck, defeated New Baltimore Supervisor Susan O’Rorke and two town board lackies, Chris Norris and Lisa Benway, will explain their personal recipes for roast pork. You know, the ones Denis Jordan and selected vendors have learned to enjoy these past years. Susan O’Rorke will try to squirm out of her putrid corner to explain why she and lackies Chris Norris and Lisa Benway approved so many illegal and unlawful expenditures of New Baltimore taxpayers’ money. David Wukitsch, New Baltimore town attorney will be available to explain why the residents of New Baltimore should not petition the Committee on Professional Standards to suspend his license to practice law or at lease sanction and censure him for legal malpractice while advising the O’Rorke monkeys.

Not Any More!!! Be at the New Baltimore Town Hall and Find Out What Happened to the Bacon!

Not Any More!!!
Be at the New Baltimore Town Hall and Find Out What Happened to the Bacon!

The New York State Comptroller’s auditors found some very serious misuse of taxpayer money and some very suspicious purchasing practices made by the Susan O’Rorke/Chris Norris/Lisa Benway trio. Denis Jordan, an elected town official and town highway superintendent was at the center of most of the abuse of public office. So what do O’Rorke, Norris, Benway do with New Baltimore taxpayer money? They give Jordan a raise!

Concerned residents and taxpayers of New Baltimore intend to show up at the December 9, 2013, New Baltimore Town Board meeting to demand that O’Rorke, Norris, and Benway explain their mismanagement and violation of town policies and New York State Law. They will have to explain why criminal charges should not be brought against them.

Mr Jordan will have to explain why he got the raise and why he was involved in so many illegal purchases. We already know from Jordan’s, Benway’s and Norris’ own statements put out in a recent campaign letter supporting O’Rorke that Jordan and O’Rorke are very close. So they’re so close they, O’Rorke, Norris, and Benway vote to give their friend Jordan a pay raise. Nice!

And where was New Baltimore town attorney David Wukitsch when all of this illegal crapola was going on? He’s being paid by New Baltimore taxpayers to keep things legal. Davey was sitting on his muffin giving illegal advice for unlawful practices. We think New Baltimore taxpayers should demand that the State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Judicial Department, Committee on Professional Standards review David Wukisch’s conduct in his role as New Baltimore town attorney and recommend that he be suspended or at least sanctioned and censured for his legal malpractice!

In the meantime, the only right thing for Denis Jordan to do is to refuse the pay raise and let the new New Baltimore Town Board vote on it. If the new New Baltimore town board thinks he deserves a raise after careful consideration of his past performance and record, we’ll stand by them. But in the meantime, Jordan should not be handed a raise for kissing O’Rorke’s ass at New Baltimore taxpayers’ expense.

New York Governor Mario Cuomo and his Attorney General Eric Schneiderman are so hot and bothered by public corruption, let’s see what they do about radical local government corruption like we have in New Baltimore and in the town of Coeymans! Do their wars on corruption in public office  target only their political opponents and the other party, are their threats and campaigns just smoke-and-mirrors, dogs-and-ponies? We’ll see. They’ll see when they get the numbers from the voting booths!

In the meantime, we citizens have to ensure that the crooks and the corrupt in public office get what they deserve, and lose what they don’t deserve.

Big Disappointments & Civil Rights Violations: The Ravena Health and Fitness Center

Do your part in informing the community and the world: Cut and paste the link to this blog article into an e-mail and send it to your contacts! Here’s the link: http://wp.me/p2jPFe-1I2 )

The burning question is: Ravena Taxpayers, Ravena Residents, are already paying at least $115,000 for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center for the budget year 2013-14, so Why??? do Ravena Residents have to shell out at least $240.00 each a year to use the Ravena Health and Fitness Center???? Shouldn’t it be the same as the Community Library? Taxpayer money supports the RCS Community Library but residents and even non-residents can use the library FREE! There’s no additional charge to use the Community Library! So why do Ravena residents have to get hit twice by the Bruno-Warner-Deluca crooks?

And can Ravena residents and taxpayers affort to back-up the lawsuits and settlements that are likely to come out of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center because of its risks and hazards? And we’re not even considering the lawsuits and settlements that will result from the poor management and illegal policies and procedures under so-called director Cathy Deluca, who with the collaboration  of mayor  John T. Bruno and Nancy Warner, set herself up in a plum job for a cool $30,000 of taxpayer money! They play,  YOU PAY, Ravena!

On Our Ravena Tour, Our Third, and Quite Possibly Our Most Disappointing Stop Was…

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center

Given the history and the circumstances surrounding the questionable creation and scandalous lack of planning and corrupt funding of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, and given the way the village of Ravena simply went through the motions but then hired one of their own to be “director” of the center for a cool $30 grand a year, we found it very difficult to dump emotions and stay objective when stepping into the place.

But that notwithstanding, here’s our report on our experience plus the added entertainment report of a local resident’s experience at the Ravena Health and Fitness Center.

First of all, we were pleasantly surprised to find the place really looking like a fitness center. At first glance it’s a bit cramped and, if you get 10 or 15 people in the place it could make the impression of being crowded and claustrophobic, but if you were to go there with the genuine intention of getting a good workout, you’d probably not notice.

We also had the feeling that two things can happen if the place gets off to a start: It will become a haven for young men who want to strut their testosterone-soaked egos (and this would discourage the older crowd) or it will become a watering hole for bored housewives and local buffalos (which would likely discourage the younger folk). Either way, the place will not likely support both groups because it’s simply too cramped.

I found that the open area where the classes would be held to be too open and would distract from the necessary concentration for strength and weight training

The center has a program of “classes” but I found that the open area where the classes would be held to be too open and would distract from the necessary concentration for strength and weight training enthusiasts or persons doing cardio or aerobic exercise on the machines, and who generally like to while away the time reading or enjoying music. In other words, it may turn out to be very distracting whatever you’re likely to be involved in.

I was greeted by a very pleasant young man who tended to ramble on with a scriptlike pitch until I had to tell him I have been working out for many years and know my way around a gym and have my routines, so “Can it!” (but not in so many words).

In general, the staff was pleasant and, although a bit puppy-like, eager to assist.

Locker rooms—there’s only one and there’s absolutely no privacy. No showers.

I was a bit disappointed when I asked about the locker rooms—there’s only one and there’s absolutely no privacy. No showers, either. I was told that changing booths were going to be installed but there would be no showers. So much for privacy and hygiene.

The Ravena Health and Fitness center, for what it offers, is extremely expensive

The greeter/salesperson handed me a copy of the “membership contract” which was a surprise, too. The Ravena Health and Fitness center, for what it offers, is extremely expensive: 1 year membership for village residents is $240.00/year or $150/6 months ($300/year). For non-village residents (I’m not quite certain what a “non-village resident” is supposed to be) a whopping $300/year or $180/6 months ($360/year). The per visit fee is $10.

We compared the cost of membership and membership options with two local clubs, Bally’s and Planet—RHFC was dead in the water!

What I don’t get is that the Ravena health and fitness center is subsidized by our tax dollars and is supposed to be a community club so why the devil is it so damned expensive???? Maybe Mayor John T. Bruno or fitness center director Cathy Deluca (hired at $30K a year + benes) can answer that for us.

Dictatorial and Heavy-handed Membership Registration & Conditions

In addition to the extremely expensive membership fees, another problem I see is the fact that for that money you have only one club to choose from: Ravena.

So we compared the cost of membership and membership options with two local clubs, Planet Fitness and Ballys, both with locations nationwide, and both fitness systems offering incredible opportunities for whatever your tastes may be. In general, the average cost for full membership, the opportunity to use any club anywhere they have a club, the availability of the most modern equipment, trainers, exercise programs, in some locations swimming pools, sauna, steam, separate changing rooms for men and women, showers, and frequently they’re open 24 hours to accommodate almost any member’s schedule is—I hope you’re sitting down—an average of between $150-175/year, and depending on the membership plan you choose, could be as low as $75/year. There are innumerable options so we’re just providing the average.

The burning question is: Ravena Taxpayers, Ravena Residents, are already paying at least $115,000 for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center for the budget year 2013-14, so Why??? do Ravena Residents have to shell out at least $240.00 each a year to use the Ravena Health and Fitness Center???? Taxpayer money supports the RCS Community Library but residents and even non-residents can use the library FREE! There’s no additional charge to use the Community Library! So why do Ravena residents have to get hit twice by the Bruno-Warner-Deluca crooks?

Bally’s has one club in the Albany area (Crossgates Mall) but Planet Fitness has about 5 locations in our immediate area, the closest one being in Glenmont.

So, as far as facilities and cost go, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center falls far short of being worth the money for what it offers.

The terms of membership are a bit dictatorial and heavy-handed, something I have not experienced at other clubs (I’m a long-time member of Bally’s and a member at Planet Fitness). At Ravena Health and Fitness, for example, in terms of liability for personal injury or property loss, you have to sign your life away (hopefully not literally). The Ravena Health and Fitness Center assumes no responsibility for any liability. So read the Membership Registration Form very carefully before signing, if you actually are considering joining the joint. The impression I got, though didn’t ask for confirmation, was that they are not insured. (I’d be very happy if someone were to correct me if I’m wrong on this.)

Ravena Health and Fitness can change “facilities, equipment, hours, service, regulations and policies” at any time and by singing the Membership Agreement you agree to accept this as a condition of membership. No way, José! For $240-$300/year? Forgettaboutit!

There are other very bizarre and restrictive terms and conditions of membership that I found to be overly controlling and unnecessary for a tiny, community-based club.

Our advice: Read the Membership Registration agreement very carefully before putting your money down and signing! Think very carefully about whether it’s worth the money and the possible aggravation.

We’ll close this report with the impressions of a local resident who very recently visited the Ravena Health and Fitness center and shared his/her impressions with us but asked to remain unidentified for obvious reasons. Here’s what he/she had to say:

“I stopped in at the Ravena health club to check it out and see what was going on.

“I walked in and one of the employees approached me and introduced himself. I told him why I was there and he agreed to give me a tour. What was really bizarre was that there was a heavy-set, older blond woman sitting on a desk in the office area who gave me a wierd feeling of being watched or examined but the tour got my mind off her gaze for a while.

“I liked the equipment because there were several machines I like to use, free weights, too. There was warm-up equipment and a space for stretching. The problem was that it was kind of cramped and not very inviting…it didn’t have that ‘gym feel’, if you know what I mean. At least before it felt like a library, it still does.

“There’s only one co-ed locker room! No showers!

“I would have considered it a possibility for when I’m too lazy to make the trip to Albany to the club where I normally work out but the Ravena club is really crazy expensive. It would cost me more than $200 for much less than what I get for $75 a year at my Albany club. No brainer!

“But the real clincher came when I met a woman who was exercising who recognized me and asked me, “Are you [redacted]?” When I answered, “Yes!” I heard the chubby blond behind the counter let out what I can only describe as a squeal and then heard a lot of whispering. I continued my chat with the woman who was from my RCS graduating class, and who wanted to get my address for an upcoming class reunion.

“When I was ready to leave, the chubby, older blond [woman] called me over, asked my name and started to verbally assault me. I asked who she was and she identified herself as “Cathy Deluca.” I responded, “My pleasure! I was looking forward to meeting you, Mrs Deluca!” Her response was, “It’s not a pleasure!” She continued her assault and finally told me, “You’re not welcome. Please leave.”

“I guess that solves the question of joining the Ravena club.

“You were right. It’s run by that group and when an employee of a publicly owned, community facility can make a decision whether a resident is “welcome” or not it’s pretty bad. I’m paying her salary and she has no right to tell me I’m unwelcome for no reason at all, or just because she doesn’t like my politics.

“Business as usual in Ravena!”

We couldn’t have said it better and we won’t attempt to do so. But we did recommend that the resident file a Notice of Claim against the village of Ravena for Cathy Deluca’s misconduct. Who knows, the resident may end up owning a fitness center!

This One's For You, Cathy Deluca

This One’s For You, Cathy Deluca

NO, thank you! Ravena Health and Fitness Center!

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.

 Read More on this Subject

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.

 stop_the_lies

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!

Coeymanazi Building Inspector Conrad: Good fences make good neighbors! More Laws Better…

Local News Is Fast Becoming Scarce  If Not Ultra-Commonplace. A Sure Sign that The Times Useless and Its Step-cousin, the Ravena News Herald are Scandal-Starved.

boys on fenceJudging from the front page of the Ravena News Herald and from the items–they’re not stories, actually, nor are they professional journalism, by the way–the local-bulletin-board-wannabe-newspaper is fast becoming advertisements in disguise  while continuing as a local propaganda rag. (Example: “Free” kempo karate demos at library for children; parents will pay after the kids get a taste. Can’t a library just be a library anymore?) Just look at the latest edition of the Ravena News Herald to see what we mean.

In a front-page piece on the “Scouts”  meeting in the Roman Catholic Church of St Patrick in Ravena, we read that

“…dozens of community members gathered at St. Patrick’s Church in Ravena to witness the Cub and Boy Scouts of Troop 1067 reaffirm their commitment to reverence, “to be reverent toward God, faithful in his [Ed. note: God’s?] religious duties and to respect the beliefs of others” in accordance with the law of the Scout put forth by the Boy Scouts of America.”

That bit of scurrilous reporting which, if you read the news outside of Ravena-Coeymans, is the epitome of misinformation and hypocrisy, given the BSA’s refusal to stop being a pillar of discrimination, exclusion and hate, where even the federal government has long ago legislated against such practices. I think it’s the part about to “respect the beliefs of others,” that got my attention. But more on that some other time.

But the most glaring first-page gaffe is the caption under the large photo on the first page. (Can you find it?) More about this later on.

(Source: The Ravena News Herald, Vol. 132 No. 52 (February 14, 2013). Photo by Marlene McTigue)

This was followed by a rather lengthy “prayer” read by Brian Searles, BSA troop master, which runs more than 144 words and takes up 2/3 of the first page text. That “prayer” runs along the lines of the Prayer of St Francis of Assisi that starts, “Lord, make me an instrument of your peace…”

“Dear Lord, bless all those everywhere who contribute to shape the hearts, minds and bodies of young people. Let us remember what they have taught and apply it daily.”

I have some serious questions as to the “what they have been taught,” and if the scout leader is referring to the explicit policy of discrimination and hate espoused, defended, and ipso factotaught” by the Boy Scouts of America espouse with regard to certain groups. Searles continues:

“When facing deceit and dishonesty, let us be trustworthy. If we see hypocrisy and faithlessness, let us be loyal. Where disregard for others and where materialism prevails, let us be helpful. In an atmosphere of ill manner, let us be courteous. Where some measure manliness in brutality and crudeness, let us be kind. Though law-breaking and rule-scoffing are common, let us be obedient. While others grumble and grouch, let us be cheerful. In an environment blighted by waste and extravagance, let us be thrifty. When confronted with danger and temptation, let us be brave. As we see filth and pollution everywhere, let us be clean. While witnessing impiety and irreligion, let us remember to be reverent. In short, in a world that has for generation after generation lamented the lack of good examples, let us Scouts stand out, grow up and be real adults.”

Clumsy as Mr Searles plagiarized prayer might be, his complaints are quite clear–we all know what he’s talking about, don’t we?

Actually, had Mr Searles simply read the Prayer of St Francis, maybe someone in the group would have more completely appreciated the intended prayerfulness of the moment and would have actually attempted to live the admonitions promoted by the holy example of the saint, and centuries later distilled shortly before the First World War into the now popular and familiar verses. (To read and download a copy of the Franciscan Peace Prayer I’ve prepared, click this link: The Story Behind the Peace Prayer of St Francis )

It’s rather ironic, too, that these lofty confessions of what our society and community have come to represent: “deceit and dishonesty,” hypocrisy and faithlessness,” “disregard for others,” “materialism,” “ill manner” ( must admit, I’m at a loss to really understand what that is supposed to mean), “manliness in brutality and crudeness,” “law-breaking and rule-scoffing,” where our neighbors “grumble and grouch,” and in a culture that confronts us daily with “danger and temptation,” where we find “filth and pollution everywhere,” and in our very churches we witness “impiety and irreligion” (irreligion is an interesting word meaning hostility towards religion. I don’t think that’s the problem though.), “lack of good examples.” In a word, doesn’t this sound like the routine in this community, in the local schools, in the entire Smalbany  region? The entire country–with few exceptions? And let’s ask ourselves how long the Scouts have been in the RCS district? And where do they go and what do they do if they graduate from our schools, move on from the scouts?

We also read in that same issue of the Ravena News Herald that–like Ravena-Coeymans–there’s no news in New Baltimore. We say this because on page 4 (it’s interesting to note that in the News Herald, page 2 reports on “Around the Town” news from Albany, Vorheesville, Rotterdam (?!?), under the heading “New Baltimore,” we read that the ailing, lonely, only church left in New Baltimore is hosting a food and fellowship luncheon. We then turn to page 9 of that same issue and read an exact duplicate of the article. Nice editing. But my point is this: Has New Baltimore descended, deteriorated to such an extent that there’s nothing better to report than to repeat an announcement of a church luncheon?!?

RCS residents pay a buck to read that sort of amateurish, poorly written, unnewsworthy stuff

So we finally come to the stuff of our title, “Coeymanazi Building Inspector Conrad: Good fences make good neighbors?” How does that fit in with the Ravena News Herald and its misshapen and moronic reporting? Read on…

R. Frost (1874-1963)Probably Turning in his Grave!

R. Frost (1874-1963)
Probably Turning in his Grave!

In a misinformative and pitifully distorted version of both American literature and reality, idiot reporter Bryan Rowzee, in the front-age item, “Coeymans. Keeping Coeymans on the map,” Rowzee starts off his item with a quote from Robert Frost’s memorable poem, Mending Wall. But in true News Herald Fashion, Rowzee misinterprets and so falsifies to his readers the meaning of the poem, and does so by taking one familiar line out of the context of the whole poem, similar to what’s done business as usual in the RCS community.

For starters, the poem is a lament of fences, how walls and fences are something that are unnatural:

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.

And throughout the poem Frost questions the necessity for fences and even characterizes the neighbor who builds the fence (in the poem a stone wall) as being

…like an old-stone savage armed.
He moves in darkness

In fact, Mr Rowzee, Frost’s poem has nothing good to say about walls or fences; in fact, the entire poem is a statement against walls and fences! Mr, Frost, describes his neighbor likening him to a menacing caveman as he puts a rock into the wall, and repeats, “Good fences makes good neighbors.” So, either Mr Rowzee is trying to be cute and is using the Frost quote in total ignorance of what the poem actually says or, Mr Rowzee is being sneaky and using the quote to ridicule Larry Conrad in the article. Difficult to say unless you read the item in the News Herald, and until you reach the paragraph

“Conrad said the town loves growth and wants growth but needs growth that follows the laws created to help the whole community. He said he hopes that this business and others will benefit from clearer zoning maps and believes this may lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.”

Mr Conrad has a motley history of contradictions and obstruction; he’s not much different from any other small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty official. Of course, Mr Conrad loves walls and fences, they’re unnatural and intended to isolate and obstruct. He’s been building unethical walls in the Coeymans community  for years and has gotten very good at it.

Moreover, there’s nothing small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty officials like more than passing laws that make them appear more powerful and make their jobs more secure, while at the same time make everyone else’s lives more complicated, and unpleasant, increase the already insufferable red tape and corruption in the area, and offer more opportunities for the small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty official to do “favors” for special people.

Like so many in the Ravena-Coeymans élite, Conrad talks out of both sides of his face

two-facedYes, Mr Larry Conrad, Coeymans Building Inspector, does come to us with a long history and a mighty load of dirty laundry in his baggage. The are some very unsavory legends about the connections between Larry Conrad and Bobo-cop Gerald “Jerry Dirty-Hands” Deluca, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (Deluca claims to be a consultant with the DEC. Consulting on what?), and a tract of land on Route 9w, a certain family of lawyers in Ravena (did I say “Biscone“?  Oops!), and an alleged shady deal made to bamboozle an elderly couple out of their property for a song. Greed was the motivation, of course. And the lawyer (did I say “Biscone” again?  Oops!), made it all seem legal. But when the deal collapsed and the property was sold to a local family for a fair price, the retaliation began! And who was at the center of the “legal” harassment and retaliation? Why do you need to ask? Mr Larry Conrad.

Like so many in the Ravena-Coeymans élite, George Dardiani (violates the Code of Judicial Ethics), Ravena mayor John Bruno (plays loosey-goosey with public money), Cathy Deluca (runs a close second to her double-talking husband and has a teflon surface with her supporters), Michael Biscone, (is he village attorney or does he just bill the village? Whatever he is, he’s great at covering some apparent real conflicts of interest. We’ll FOIL his invoices for services and the payment vouchers from the village very soon!) and the list could go on and on,  Conrad talks out of both sides of his face, but as a made Coeymanazi, he’s loyal to the godfathers and to his protectors.

So you can really understand, given Conrad’s associations, history, cronies, and the mob he hangs out with, we take a very close look at statements like “the town … wants growth but needs growth that follows the laws created to help the whole community. He said he hopes that this business and others will benefit from clearer zoning maps and believes this may lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.”

Conrad apparently believes that more laws controlling what residents and neighbors do and “help the community,” and that more laws “will lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.” Which side of his mouth is this coming from, I ask?

Mr Conrad, the only way that misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and village/town officials can be lessened is not by creating more laws but by streamlining the administration. This may very well entail eliminating the village of Ravena and consolidating it with the hamlet of Coeymans under one single administration, an administration that will first of all put an end to the corruption and coercion that has hallmarked the Ravena-Coeymans system of oppression for decades! It will involve elimination of the money pit and den of thugs we popularly call the Coeymans Police Department and purging the crooks and dumbos calling themselves law enforcement! Replacing the Coeymans Police Department with a professionally trained corps of law enforcement like the Albany County Sheriff’s team would be the wisest move ever for this community.

Before you create new laws or bring in new systems, Mr Conrad, there’s a hell of a lot of healing that has to be done to “lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.” 

The Ravena-Coeymans community has been hemorrhaging small businesses while being poisoned by the large corporations and oppressed by the special-interests in and around Albany that are feeding and fostering the small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty officials who all believe they have their positions for life and can hand them over to their designated heirs.  And the Conrad-Biscone-Deluca-Bruno-Persico cliques have all but silenced the democratic process in the town of Coeymans. Clean out village and town hall completely and maybe the fresher air in the town of Coeymans will attract business-health conscious entrepreneurs. To date all that the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans have attracted are corpse flies feeding on the dead and dying local economy. What businesses are left standing after the Conrad Crew and the Coeymanazis have finished are disillutioned, angry, and suspicious of anything that comes out of the village and town halls!

Larry Conrad hasn’t a clue what he’s talking about! Before you create new laws or bring in new systems, Mr Conrad, there’s a hell of a lot of healing that has to be done to “lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.” The TRUST and CONFIDENCE in local government has to be re-established after decades of a local corrupt machine of self-interests and special interests have made this entire community into a community of paranoid recluses! Thank the  Brunos, the Biscones, the Delucas, the Warners, the Darlingtons, the Teresis, the Neris, the Rotellos, the Persicos, and Yes! the Conrads of the area, and their Coeymanazi minions.

Rather than Building Fences or Proselytizing that “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors” or that Laws Lessen Misunderstanding and Heal Strained Relationships, the News Herald and the Scouts Should be Proactively Tearing Down Fences and Building Community in spite of the Hypocrites, Whether Religious, Social, or Political Hypocrites!

The Moment of Truth is NOW!Make Positive Changes Now. Tweak Later.

The Moment of Truth is NOW!
Make Positive Changes Now. Tweak Later.

So back to page 1 of the Ravena News Herald. We can start by not asking God to do what we ourselves are very capable of doing ourselves if we simply follow the ethical principles taught by the Gospels and especially the Beatitudes (Sermon on the Mount). If you’ve forgotten what they are, find a Bible and read them again, if you ever have read them. The entire law condenses down to, “Love God totally and love your neighbor as you love yourself!”

Careful How You "Pray"!

Careful How You “Pray”!

Misusing prayer to make a political appeal to empty hearts is a sacrilege and involving God in that conspiracy is blasphemy! In the precincts of a Roman Catholic sacred space used for secular purposes, the prayer should either not have been done or the real experts in screwing up prayer should have been invited to invoke the petition to the divine: either the pastor of the Roman Catholic Church of St Patrick or the bishop’s minion, the deacon at St Patrick’s. At least the screwed up prayer would have been screwed up professionally. But to have such a “prayer” come from the lips of a representative of an organization that conspicuously and publicly discriminates and offends the dignity of members of the community is an affront to fair play and justice.

But certainly, the merit that can be taken from the so-called prayer is the enumeration of the darkness that the speaker finds in the community, society, and the world. But just publicly displaying awareness of those evils, evils that are right outside our doors, is not enough. Solutions are needed but no solutions are offered. That doesn’t work for me at all.

The newspapers at one time played an important educational role–they now churn out chum, crap!

The public media have lost all sense of dignity and continue to fail in their obligations to the people of our communities. Where the public media, the newspapers, played an important role of sharing good information while playing fair, and demanding quality in the information they send out to the public–yes, the newspapers at one time played an important educational role–they now churn out chum, crap! The conspicuous cover photo accompanying the article, “Scouts reaffirm their faith in God in annual service,” regrettably demonstrates this point. In the caption we read: “Weblos of Pack 1067 illustrate the deadline sin of gluttony in a skit at the Scouts Own Service on Sunday.” What is a “deadline sin”? Doesn’t the editor know gluttony (actually intemperance in moral theological terms)  is a “deadly sin“? Shame on you!

Poor editing, poor attention to detail, poor reporting: No news in New Baltimore. Church luncheon announced instead and in two places. Shame on you News Herald and New Baltimore!

But giving Rowzee the benefit of doubt, maybe he was doing both tongue-in-cheek.

And again, the glaring ignorance of Mr Bryan Rowzee and his pitiful misrepresentation of a renowned American poet laureate’s poem, Mending Wall, reveals the deplorable level of teaching the humanities, even important American literature. Rowzee’s gaffe reveals two things at least: the carelessness and indifference of the print media in terms of accuracy and reliability of facts, even well-established facts, and the failure of our education system in teaching our American literary heritage to such an abominable degree that an allegedly “qualified” journalist (a term used very loosely, indeed, in this discussion), one whose prose is made public as if it were credible, doesn’t have an inkling of understanding of what he’s writing about. If Mr Rowzee knew anything of what he was writing about he would have used the line from the Robert Frost poem correctly, and Rowzee would certainly have known better than to have printed the Conrad quote. But giving Rowzee the benefit of doubt, maybe he was doing both tongue-in-cheek. We can only guess!

More than 3 Decades of Corruption! Throw Them Out!

Maybe You Like the Way the Duplicated and Frequently Contradicting Operations of the Ravena and Coeymans Local Government Wastes Your Tax Dollars. Some of Us Don’t.

And Maybe You Like Being Told in So Many Words You Don’t Count When Your Local Elected Officials (that is, the little Royal Court that Calls Itself the Ravena Village Council) Do as They Damned Please Without Asking Your Opinion…

You Thinking What I’m Thinking?

And What’s Up With the Town Supervisor and Village Mayor and your Village Council and Town Board Officials, Aren’t They At All Interested in What’s Going on In the RCS School District? I’ve yet to see them attend a BoE meeting or make a statement at the public meetings. Shouldn’t there be some sort of collaboration or cooperation between the school district and the local government, after all, the children attend the school do live in their administrative territories. Or are the local politicos too busy conspiring, stealing, and duplicating efforts at your expense? (Coeymans Town Supervisor did send a “proclamation” a couple of months ago, but didn’t appear to present it; instead  superintentent Smith read it to the meeting.)

You’ll never vote them out, they’ve got more relatives to vote them in than New York City has cockroaches and bedbugs combined! (Or, you could put your own people on the ballot and campaign for them…)

My Advice is: Throw Them Out! There are laws and procedures to help you do that:

N.Y. PBO. LAW § 36 : NY Code – Section 36: Removal of town, village, improvement district or fire district officer by court
Any town, village, improvement district or fire district officer,…, may be removed from office by the supreme court for any misconduct, maladministration, malfeasance or malversation in office. An application for such removal may be made by any citizen resident of such town, village, improvement district or fire district or by the district attorney of the county in which such town, village or district is located, and shall be made to the appellate division of the supreme court held within the judicial department embracing such town, village, improvement district or fire district. Such application shall be made upon notice to such officer of not less than eight days, and a copy of the charges upon which the application will be made must be served with such notice.

N.Y. NYC. LAW § 9 : NY Code – Section 9: Removal of mayor
The mayor may be removed from office by the governor upon charges and after service upon him of a copy of the charges and an opportunity to be heard in his defense. Pending the preparation and disposition of charges, the governor may suspend the mayor for a period not exceeding thirty days.

N.Y. VIL. LAW § 4-412 : NY Code – Section 4-412:

The board of trustees
3(12) An officer or person who assumes to create a liability or appropriate money or property of the village without authority of law, or assents thereto, is personally liable for such debt, or to the village for such money or property. Each member of a village board present at a meeting thereof when such unlawful action is taken is deemed to have assented thereto, unless he expressly dissents and requests such dissent to be entered upon the minutes of the meeting. If any person shall have heretofore appropriated or shall hereafter appropriate money or property of the village, contrary to law, and the facts in relation thereto are known to the board of trustees, and, after this section as amended takes effect, such board fail for thirty days to bring an action against such person to recover such money or property, each member of the board having such knowledge shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and liable to removal from office unless within such period of thirty days he shall file with the village clerk a written request, signed by him, requesting the bringing of, such action or shall cause to be entered upon the minutes of a meeting of the board a motion made by him for the bringing of such action, or his vote in favor of such a motion.

This article will be continued with examples and discussion. Check back later…

FIGHT BACK!

Albany County DA Has Perfected Stupidity (Opinion)

Albany County District Attorney P. [Pudenda] David Soares Has Worked Very Hard at Perfecting Stupidity. He Seems to have Succeeded in Getting the Stupid Look Right and, According to Several Judges, Has Made Himself Ridiculous.

Is there Anything Going On
Behind that Stupid Look?
P. David Soares
Albany County District Attorney
à la the Race Ticket to Office

Soares Has Become a Laughing Stock not Only In Albany County, But Apparently Enjoys National Fame for His Gaffes and Being Publicly Disciplined By Several Judges. It’s Uncanny that Voters In Albany County Have Allowed P. David Sores to Even Run Again!

We’ve reported several times already on this Jerky Boy and his ineptitude, his total lack of any ethics, and his coziness with the local Coeymanazis. Democrats have perfected playing the race card to the detriment of the people.

Soares Is A Card-Holding

Times Union Editorial: “We’re glad, finally, to report that there seems to be more discontent than ever in Ravena, Coeymans and Selkirk…”

“We’re glad, finally, to report that there seems to be more discontent than ever in Ravena, Coeymans and Selkirk”*

(*Statement in a recent Albany Times Union editorial)

Filthy Rags
Another Times Union Editorial

A recent Times Useless (a.k.a. Albany Times Union, a newspaper owned by the Hearst Corporation) editorial sounds like it’s dictated by Alice Whalen or Howard Engel: “We’re glad, finally, to report that there seems to be more discontent than ever in Ravena, Coeymans and Selkirk…” But to cover its ass legally, the editorial expressly uses the word “opinion” to protect itself from possible liability and lawsuits.

Or, maybe the Times Useless knows what’s best for the RCS community and district. Maybe the Times Useless should vote for all of us and maybe that will save our useless butts. Yeah! Let’s all ask the Times Useless editor to vote for all of us. That will solve all of our problems and we’ll finally get some positive press out of that useless rag! (I don’t really think that’s a great idea.)

Now, think, good readers: When can you remember the Times Useless ever writing something fair, balanced, decent about the RCS community or the RCS school district? The Times Useless enjoys what is called Schadenfreude (pronounced: shadenfroyde), the delight in another’s bad luck or suffering. Is that the best the Times Useless can serve up about our community? There are two possibilities that come to mind when I read something as slanted and biased as the Times Useless editorial:

  1. Either the editorial was written by someone who has no knowledge of the community and the district, an outsider in other words. If that is the case, the editorial in the TU rag is totally unreliable, is the product of ignorance and simplemindedness, calculated only to victimize a suffering community and to make money by scandalizing us.
  2. Or the editorial was written by someone being fed the false facts and what to write. Someone or some group in our RCS community is providing the TU rag with misinformation about the community. In that case, the rag is totally unreliable and is a mere tool of some shadowy crook using it to manipulate public opinion against the RCS community and district. But what’s to gain by destroying the dignity of our community and embarrassing the good, hard-working majority by writing such garbage? Who knows? Christ Jesus was innocent but was sold for 30 pieces of silver…what’s the price of selling out the RCS community and blaming the innocent?  Evil does work in bizarre ways to accomplish its purposes, though.

The bottom line is: There are traitors in our midst and there are sheeple who believe them (including the Times Useless). But isn’t it great to know we have the support and the compassion of the Times Union to encourage us in our moments of challenge and in the negotiation and decision-making process? Isn’t it great to know that the local rag is so happy at what it seems to think is our continuing descent to despair? Thank you! Times Union for your kind observations. It’s good to know you’re there for your neighbors! Scumbag rag!

The unsigned editorial then continues to describe the RCS school district’s operation as “school district’s follies.”
