The Cost of Being Reubenville, Now Back to Being Just Coeymans

Embarassed by a Food Chain Sandwich

Town of Coeymans Boardmember Hands Out Sandwich Coupons to About 35 Residents

The small minds of the Coeymans town board fell victim to the petty rewards of the Arby’s marketing plan to rename some idiotic community Reubenville for the month of March. The Coeymans town board offered to do just that in order to get 5000 coupons for free sandwiches. The hitch: You had to live in a community stupid and petty enough to rename itself by proclamation, Reubenville. Then, once you got your prize, you’d have to spend about $10 to get a $3 sandwich. That’s the best example of Coeymans economics we can come up with.

The Arby's Gift Card

The Arby’s Gift Card

By the time you travel to Colonie and back—you’d have to drive to Wolf Road in Colonie to get your sandwich, about an hour traveling 45 miles round-trip—you’ve worked up an appetite again!

So, Coeymans town board member Thomas Boehm (Pronounced: Bum) handed out fewer than 100 of the 5000 sandwich cards to about 35 of the 7,300+ Coeymans residents who showed up to claim their prize. That was a surprisingly optimistic showing for Coeymans, where depression reigns supreme. Wonder why?

Our guess is that most residents with any self-respect were embarassed to show up to profit from the board’s degrading misuse of public official time. But of course, right there for the free handouts were plenty of public officials, including [unconfirmed!] village justice Harold “Hal” Warner and Ravena village board member [unconfirmed!]William “Bill” Bailey. An unconfirmed report informs us that Coeymans town justice, George Dardiani, absconded with a handful of 8 coupons, a redeemable value of about $48 in merchandise! In addition, Linda Tammy Eissing, Coeymans town court clerk, allegedly walked off with 8 coupons.

We find it amusing to think that when it comes to collaboration the village of Ravena is so adverse to Coeymans but when it comes to free junk food, they’re right there in the food line. No dignity! (We’re waiting for confirmation of other Names-of-Shame and we’ll publish as soon as we get confirmation.) We expect that the Coeymans town clerk is keeping a tally of coupons handed out and to whom, and that list will be public information. It’s only part of good accounting.

We do want to emphasize that these reports are unconfirmed. If anyone has information to the contrary, please let us know so we can make appropriate changes and apologize, if necessary.

Ravena village board member Bill Bailey and Ravena village justice Harold Warner showed up for the freebies.

In a previous article we suggested that the town of Coeymans make the humanitarian gesture of donating the 5000 coupons to local homeless shelters and food pantries, who could make the trip to redeem 50 or more coupons and make it worthwhile. But NO! Why would Coeymans do something that would reflect positively on the community. Instead, they chose to be greedy and stupid—again, still—and grab what they could (what a fiasco!) and then, maybe then, when they’ve had their fill, give the leftovers away. Now that’s real Coeymans good will!

We have also received reports that Coeymans town board member Thomas E. “Tom” Dolan was handing out coupons as fast as he could after the town meeting on April 8. Do you think he was checking residencies? Was there any accountability for how many he gave out or to whom? The coupons are, after all public property, and there must be accountability for where they’re going and who’s using them. Wouldn’t you think.  We think Dolan was campaigning with your coupons, playing Santa Claus with your property. What do you think?

We think that the town of Coeymans behaved very poorly. We also think that elected officials should have more dignity. Both are a betrayal of the public’s trust. We also continue to feel that the right thing to do is to donate the remaining coupons to regional shelters and food pantries based on the number of persons served. If you agree, dear readers, e-mail Supervisor Stephen Flach or the Coeymans/Reubenville town board and tell them what you think! Here are their contact e-mails:

Editor’s Note: For those of you in especial need of an Arby’s sandwich, please be advised that we have been informed that you can pick up your much-needed fast-food freebie fix at the Coeyman’s town clerk’s office (as if she needed to do this, too).

Coeymans: Can It Get Any Worse Than This?

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this page NOW or get your parent to supervise your visit!

It Seems the Town of Coeymans Just Can’t Live Without Making A Complete Ass of Itself!
And the Coeymans Town Board Knows Just How to Announce to the World:
We’re A Bunch of Retards!

Coeymans puts the "C" in Cheap as in Sell Out Cheap!Coeymans Town Board Sells Out for A Sandwich. Now that's Cheap!

Coeymans puts the “C” in Cheap as in Sell Out Cheap!
Coeymans Town Board Sells Out for A Sandwich. Now that’s Cheap!

It’s really unbelievable that the Coeymans town board would be such whores and prostitute themselves to an Arby’s marketing scheme!

Are You thinking ARBYS?

Are You thinking ARBY’S?
That Arby’s Logo is a Little “Suggestive,” Isn’t It? Wondering about the message Arby’s is sending?
And what they’re really thinking about?

We’ve already established that Coeymans has no dignity but the renaming for a month after a sandwich is clear proof of how seriously the town board of Coeymans takes their mandates and their attitude towards governing the town of Coeymans…excuse me, Reubenville. To think that the town board of Coeymans would degrade their office, the town of Coeymans, and clownify the people of this community is clearly a message shouting: We don’t belong in adult clothes! We don’t belong in office! We belong in clown clothes!

So's Your Coeymans Town Board

So’s Your Coeymans Town Board
Did you notice the similarity with the Arby’s logo?

This sort of idiocy, childlike, retarded behavior by so-called elected public servants is a disgrace (and YES! I did use the “retarded” word because there’s no more accurate way of describing their cognitive backwardness!). They’re not even civil service tested, they can’t even say they were appointed by some moronic dumbass. No! Coeymans has to admit that the residents of the town of Coeymans actually elected those clowns. The residents of the town of Coeymans actually made a choice, exercising their right to vote for whom they thought were the best qualified clowns for the job of running the town of Coeymans! Coeymans! Is that the best you could do?

You’d think the elected dumbasses on the Coeymans town board would have at least sold themselves for something healthy,  instead of ignoring the fact that the local epidemic of obese broadasses is a public health disaster, and sending the message that we need more doublewides on the Ravena-Coeymans streets! But no, the chubby-chasers on the Coeymans town board want to put some flab on those hips and so they went for one of the least healthy fast-food gimmicks around: the fat- and sodium-laden reuben! Here’s the nutrition information (if you want to call it “nutrition”):

  • Calories: 640! (that’s w/o fries or onion rings!)
  • Sodium: 1.6 grams (68% of normal daily intake!)
  • Fat: 30 grams

And you still wonder why thunderthighs and cellulite city is lying next to you? Or why your kids look like basketballs on sticks? Or why you’re all diabetics and have high blood pressure by the time you’re 10 years old? Thank the braniacs who cook up stuff like Arby’s reuben sandwiches and thank your trusted elected officials for doing their part in putting you and your kids on early dialysis!

Eat this and YOUR time will be limited!

Eat this and YOUR time will be limited!

In fact, the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District should make a formal public protest for the despicably poor example the town board of Coeymans is giving and should denounce them for contradicting any healthy foods education the taxpayers of this district are paying to have taught in the schools!

If any of that bunch of pre-adolescent kleptomaniacs in the Coeymans doublewide they call a town Hall are re-elected, the whole town should be expedited down the Hudson in a garbage barge!

Stephen Flach and Thomas Boehm sold Coeymans down the river in an Arby's garbage barge!

Stephen Flach and Thomas Boehm sold Coeymans down the river in an Arby’s garbage barge!

It’s all over the Internet. In fact, here’s an example of some of the press the town of Coeymans is getting:

Reubenville, the Albany County town usually known as Coeymans, has been awarded 5,000 coupons for the Arby’s sandwich shop on Wolf Road in nearby Colonie.

Figuring out a way to equitably distribute them will, as Councilman Tom Boehm remarked at the February town board meeting when the temporary name change was approved, be the tough chore.

The name change was a gimmick that was part of the fast-food chain’s “Reubenville
Challenge,” which encouraged communities nationwide to adopt the name Reubenville as a way of publicizing Arby’s new Reuben sandwich. It will stay that way through the end of March.

Arby’s made the winner’s announcement Friday, noting Coeymans was the first municipality in the nation to meet the challenge.

(Source: “Welcome to Reubenville, NY, a sandwich heaven” by William M. Dowd, Examiner.com)

The most interesting question is how the town of Coeymans will decide to divvy up the 5000 sandwiches among the more than 7000 Coeymans residents. Coeymans is indeed fortunate, though, to have a pastor/preacher of sorts as its supervisor, maybe pastor/town supervisor Stephen Flach or one of his black monks, Peter Masti or Phillip Crandall, religious zealots that they are, can do something like the loaves and fishes trick. Waddaya think, Coeymans? Can they pull that one off?

Sure, Coeymans was the first municipality in the nation to meet the challenge! Probably the only municipality whose elected officials are stupid enough to make asses of a whole community! Nice going, Coeymans!So, what’s next? Does the town of Coeymans rename the Coeymans Police Department Dunkin’ Donuts DoDo Cops and award DoDo Darlington and BoBo-Cop Jerry Deluca 5000 Dunkin’ Donut holes?

And Chicken Little Cried: “The Sky Is Falling!”

Cathy Deluca Is Going Ballistic on FaceBook and Her Mindless Dumb Clucks are Clucking In Agreement:
“Oh, My! They’re Going Legal On Us! How Dare They!”

Cathy Deluca and the
FaceBook Tubbies

Are in an Uproar!

Cathy Deluca and her FaceBook Tubbies have been in an uproar over the RCS Board of Education’s resolution to require everyone operating on school property to be accountable and to obey the law. Cathy is outraged! What? Obey the law?!? What? Be accountable?!?

Bravo, “Fabulous Five!” Make Policy Now! Clean House Now!
It’s For the Kids!

Cathy Deluca’s on the War Path!
(Again!)

Well someone said they saw Major Cluck a.k.a. Cathy Deluca on Main Street in Ravena, New York, and she was dressed for the fight! You GO! girl!

And all the commotion is about the RCS board of education proposing a resolution that requires anyone doing business on school property to do it legally. We realize that’s something really new and revolutionary in the RCS district but it had to come sooner or later.

Here’s the text of the resolution that has Cathy Deluca’s feathers in a tizzy: 


Cathy DeLuca
Here is the latest stunt from our “Fab Five” on the RCS BOE. Their new policy

2.13 BE IT RESOLVED that the Board hereby directs the Superintendent of Schools to implement the following procedures with respect to organizations that may lawfully use school district facilities for fund raising activities:
Prior to approving a use the not-for-profit organization must present the Superintendent with written documentation regarding the fee schedule for entrance fees, raffle prices and or goods to be sold on the school district premises; An estimate of the amount of proceeds must be presented to the Superintendent with written evidence of the actual cost of the goods or services that will be paid out of the gross fees and/or sales; The amount of money estimated to be gifted to a general educational or general charitable entity shall be set forth in writing, detailing how the monies will be paid over to such entity; The accounting of the gross sales shall be conducted in the presence of a school district official or employee; No use application shall be granted where the conditions set forth above have not been met, except for the accounting of the gross sales process that will be conducted at the end of the use period.

PLEASE NOTE: they are trying to not only control “who” can raise funds for the school but also “where” the funds are applied. They are UNBELIEVABLE!


Yes, Cathy, to the mind of a dumb cluck it probably is “UNBELIEVABLE!” It’s unbelievable that you’ll finally have to do things legally. But you can change, you’ve done it so many times before. When I listen to you I really believe that creatures the size of a dinosaur can actually live with a brain the size of a peanut. You’re living proof!

But Deluca is not the only dumb cluck in town, listen to Kathleen Ryan Gill’s come-back:

” This school board is more than ridiculous. They are so filled with self importance that they forget who they serve; the kids. It is more important to them to continue bickering and nitpicking and demean others that even a soda deposit bottle return needs to be regulated. My grandchildren attend Ravena schools and I am outraged by the negativity the school board is creating. I guess those running the soda bottle blitz were going to book a cruise with the money and not give it back to the kids? Those running the blitz are parents of students attending RCS. They PAY TAXES for their children to attend there. I think their paying school taxes makes them partners of the school and therefore, if they are running a not for profit fundraiser FOR THE SCHOOL, the school would be obliged to help them in order to help THEMSELVES. What egotistical idiots would bite the hand that feeds them? RCS school board, that’s who. By the way, I will take this time to thank the wonderful teachers who have given so much to my grandchildren in spite of the RCS leadership. Hurt my children and grandchildren and you will awaken momma bears who will not stand by and take it.”

I Think I’ve Been Insulted!

I guess if your name is Cathy or Kathy you must be sharing the same bird brain! Seems to me, Kathleen Ryan Gill, that the only “kids” you’ve served have been honey-roasted! The normally functioning intellect will not need me to point out the absolute idiocy of Kathleen Ryan Gill’s published stupidity. But I will…Gill seems to think that it’s  the school board who is creating “negativity” and that the “bickering and nitpicking” is from the “school board.” Well, when Kathleen Ryan Gill comes out of her senile dementia episodes and her drug-induced coma, she might actually realize that the board has been the model of cooperation and consensus and that the “bickering and nitpicking” has been coming from the Deluca FaceBook Teletubby bunch, who have done nothing but bellyache and point their fingers, and ambush the board at every turn, that is, when they’re not on Twinkie binges.

The Clucks Club
(How they work)

Other charter members of the Clucks Club: Cathy DeLuca (Chief Cluck), Jeanette Smith Borger, Tracey Traver, Mike Varney, Moose Misuraca (smh), don’t miss a beat in clucking idiotic opinions and misguided advice. Not one of them knows what she or he is talking about. It’s reads like a lonely hearts club, dear Abby mutation. It reeks of self-loathing and myopia! These people have a serious case of unrecovered children of dysfunctional families or serious co-dependence.

Cathy Deluca and her lackies, her clucks, function out of hate and envy, and apparently self-loathing. Nothing the present board of education majority would or could ever do would please them because the Coeymanazi Teletubbettes are a deeply unhappy, unfulfilled mob. The Delucas and their Coeymanazis are so envious and sour-grapes, they’ve lost so many times, they’re known as the Coeymans Losers Club, that they are blinded by their envy. Only misfits would join with them.

Kathleen Ryan Gill apparently comes from some still unmapped area of rural “Appalachia” that hasn’t yet heard that there are laws that regulate who operates what on school property. And Yes! Since about 1912, the government has been very interested in how people make money and what’s done with it. Maybe Kathleen Ryan Gill has never paid any income or sales taxes or never filled out a tax form. But that’s OK. We don’t think the RCS Sports Association or Cathy Deluca ever has, either. And they both claim to have some sense of business…Coeymanazi business. Crooks!

But the best of Kathleen Ryan Gill comes at the closing. GRRR! Momma Bears loose! Gimme a break! Grow up grandma! You’re starting to really scare me and I hope your neighbors know about you…do you get out much?

Momma Bear Scarwee!

And then there’s Brenda Biance Pommakoy, obviously a Teletubby of few words, who writes in response to grandma Ryan-Gill: “So sad what the district has resorted to!” Yes, it is sad, Brenda. So sad that the privilege of free speech can be used so frequently by the Deluca Teletubbies only to publish their despicable ignorance, and to continue to foster the apparently predominant impression, so frequently published in the Times Useless, that the people of this RCS district are a bunch of ignorant, illiterate, hypocritical cannibals.

Somebody say “Fitness Center?”
An RCS Beauty Ready to Pump Iron

Cathy Deluca has been involved in so many shadey deals in this community that the only one who’s probably shadier is her partner, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca. If they aren’t getting the kudos for their corrupt practices then they’ll lynch anyone who tries to do good. Deluca’s behind the idiotic Bruno corruption that’s insanely trying to put a fitness center in the library space. And what’s worse, she tries to justify the idea on her FaceBook page. She stands to benefit (she’s supposed to manage the fitness center, you know), so screw the library! Well, looking at most of the residents they sure do need a fitness center more than a library: to drop a couple twinky tons. And judging by what I read in some of those FaceBook comments, they don’t need a library, they wouldn’t know what to do with a book. Maybe Bruno’s not so senile as I thought.

A Senile, Demented Brain Gives Birth: You Pay Again!

Well, We Can Say:
“We Told You So!”

AGAIN!

Which Brain Is the Father
of Ravena Mayor Bruno’s Brainchild?

We know it sounds strange talking about brains in the same breath as the Ravena village board and senile mayor John T. Bruno and his crooked minions, and we problably should rather be talking about mandatory sentencing guidelines but Hey! brains is the subject of the day. Right? And so when you talk about Good you have to talk about evil. Right? When you talk about brains you have to talk about brainless, too.

Ravena-Coeymans has recently been reading headlines like, “Future uncertain for library as lease deal falls through“, “Village to library: Vacate premises by October 31“, “Ravena library can stay put for now” but we had already predicted this situation back on May 2, 2012, before the budget votes, in our article “Library Proposal Still ‘In Press’”  in which we predicted that the Ravena Public Library was going to be another “Swimming Pool” and our headline was “Is the RCS Public Library Plan Going to Be Another RCS Swimming Pool? Poor Planning, Too Many Questions, Too Few Answers…Kill It Now Before It Gets Too Far Along and You’re Stuck with an Monkey on Your Backs!” And your wise village board, John Bruno, Martin Case, Rocco Persico, Bill Bailey, and your darling Biscone component, Nancy Biscone-Warner (yes, wife of town justice-under-investigation, Harold “Hal” Warner) together with the omnipresent Cathy and Jerry “Dirty Hands” Deluca, are going to give you another albatross on your backs: a village fitness center!

Our library article would be worth reading if you haven’t read it (just click on the link in the above paragraph) already and should be re-read even if you have. Because it’s no joke: the same people who were involved in the RCS swimming pool fiasco are involved in this baby, too. Do the names Deluca, Bruno, Biscone sound familiar. Yes! They mixed up in this lunatic development, too.

And there is just as much sneaking around, just as many secret meetings, and taxpayer money is being mismanaged by people like John Bruno, who was just cited for gross mismanagement of Ravena accounts and whose reply was, “I didn’t know.” My bullshit meter is going off the scale at this point.

Or did you all forget that little scandal that came out of the recent audit of the village of Ravena! Gosh you all have short memories…an epidemic of Alzheimer’s disease seems to be happening in Ravena-Coeymans. No one remembers beyond yesterday!

Was anyone aware that back in March, shortly after the March elections, Mayor John Bruno met behind closed doors with Guess who! Cathy Deluca, Nancy Warner, Marty Case, and a couple of others to discuss, Guess what! A Ravena community fitness center! Just what Ravena needs, a healthclub (or just what Nancy Biscone-Warner and Harold “Hal” Warner want, a private local healthclub). How many fitness centers have failed in Ravena-Coeymans, already? Anyone counting? And wasn’t Cathy Deluca running one of the failed centers?

Mayor John T. Bruno
Mayor of Ravena, NY
Has he gone bananas?

But the local media reported, “The brainchild of Mayor John Bruno, the fitness center would be a viable option for the village since there would be no need to lease space from another owner and because there is $100,000 worth of exercise equipment in the village available for purchase now, since the Neighborhood Health and Fitness Center has closed its doors, according to Warner.”

Idiots!

Ever wonder why the Neighborhood Health and Fitness Center closed its doors? But Bruno is there, ready to write a check for at least $50,000 of your money to fund another failure…and hire Cathy Deluca (surprised?) to manage the place. Like with Cathy Deluca running the place who needs a recession? Why don’t we have a haloween bonfire and just burn the $50-grand?

In a letter dated September 13 from Judy Felsten, RCS Community Library Director, she asks “Friends, Neighbors and Library Patrons for their vocal support to convince the Village government to allow the Library to remain where it is until a suitable permanent facility is ready.” According to Judith Felsten, “the Mayor of Ravena, John T. Bruno,notified the Library that it must vacate its location in the Village Building by October. Bruno writes that he has the unanimous support of the Village Board. They plan to buy the Neighborhood Fitness Center’s equipment and create a fitness center in the library space.” Now that sound just about right for the brainchild of a senile mind: kick out the library and put in a fitness center! The illiterates in Ravena don’t need a library but just think of all the whales that will flock to Bruno’s fitness center to drop those twinkie pounds! Yeah, and pigs have wings, too!

Village board member Rocco Persico’s cousin, Don Persico, owns the former Knights of Columbus building where the Library director and board members enthusiastically misinformed the public of the great news, more space, nicer facilities, all centrally located, and a NY state grant to pay for it! Yeah, did I say that pigs have wings, too? Yup! I did. All the hype and misinformation was back in May of this year when the “It’s for the kids” was a popular slogan of the Coeymanazis and anyone who opposed the school budget or the library budget was just plain unpatriotic and anti-family! But the Library’s troubles began later, in September, when the board coulnd’t come to an agreement with Don Persico, owner of the building at 95 Main Street, which was to be the library’s new home. So that was at least FOUR months since the library announced the brilliant plan…four months of so-called negotiation and then…NOTHING! Great planning library board, great community spirit Village board, Don Persico. And then your wonderful Mayor John Bruno tells the library “Tough cookies! Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner want a fitness center!” Remember how we reported the outrageous incestuous relationships in the Ravena-Coeymans club? Well not only is Nancy Warner a trustee of the Village of Ravena, she’s a Biscone! Yeah, one of those mafiosi who have been screwing the Village of Ravena for more than 50 years!

And Remember the grant that Judith Felsten and her cronies touted was to pay for the expense of the library’s new home? The grant the Library had planned on applying for required that a ten year lease be signed. At the presentation just before the budget vote, which, by the way, you all passed, Felsten made it all sound like it was all in the bag. What happened, Don Persico, did you get even more greedy than before? Or did Cathy Deluca and Nancy Biscone-Warner pursuade mayor John Bruno and Rocco Persico that if the library’s space were committed, the library would be forced to accept Don Persico’s insatiable greed. Or was it just plain stupidity? The whole plan was a nut cake idea in the first place and totally devoid of any intelligent planning! We wrote that back in May when we heard the idiotic presentation and the half-baked plan. Read the RCS Community Library’s report on relocating the library at rcs community library (it’s outdated but has some interesting information).

“The grant requires a ten year lease. So by virtue of not reaching an agreement on the lease, the library could not submit the grant,” Felsten explained all of that to the Ravena board members, mayor John Bruno and Trustees Marty Case, Nancy Biscone-Warner and Rocco Persico at a Village Board workshop meeting early in September. But the fitness club deal was a done deal.

Your RCS Tax Dollars Working for You!
Thanks Ravena Village Board!

Question: How could the idiotic idea for a Ravena fitness center in the building occupied by the village offices, in an obscure location, in a community of about 3000 people, most of whom are beyond fitness either because of disease, age, or simply morbid obesity be even considered. How is it legal that all of these decisions are being made without public inputs? Without a reasonable effort at putting the project out for public bids? If it’s a village of Ravena project, why wasn’t a selection panel set up to review applicants for the job of manager? How can the village of Ravena, with all of its overspending and mismanagement woes, even consider spending at least $50,000 on used fitness equipment!!!!

What happens when the equipment breaks down–and it will–out of warranty? Who pays for the repairs? YOU DO! What about adapting the space, sanitation, showers, changing rooms, bathrooms, maintenance costs, and the list goes on! It’s plain DEMENTED, the product of a bunch of thieves and a senile brain!

Are you all crazy?!? It’s not the Ravena residents who will benefit from all of this conniving and conspiracy. It’s whoever gets paid the $50,000 for a ton of scrap equipment! It’s the insiders who get the jobs to adapt the space and manage the club, like Cathy Deluca. It’s the insiders like the Brunos, the Persicos, the Biscones, the Warners , and the Delucas, who have set the whole thing up to walk away with your money and big grins all the way to the bank!

It’s the same bunch of corrupt Coeymanazis who pushed for the 2012-13 school budget and the library budget chanting the mantra “It’s for the kids!” And then went nutz when things didn’t go their way like with firing the double-dipping energy manager, Matt Miller,  who was making $10,000 in addition to his teacher’s salary, which he receives for doing a reduced teaching load so he can take care of teacher’s union business on your dimes! Like demanding that the RCS Sports Association file the required paperwork before being allowed to operate on school property. Like demanding that the so-called RCS Bottle Blitz pay to use the school property like any other outside program!

Yeah, “It’s for the kids!” Like the fitness center is “for the kids.” Like a community library is less important than padding your corrupt friends’ pockets. Like all the seniors and others who use the community library are automatically going to become fitness freaks. Think again people.

But the great sages on the Ravena village board in there magnanimous wisdom and community spirit have allegedly given the Ravena Community Library a grace period until December, we hear. Isn’t that just ducky!

Forget About It!
It’s Just too Crazy!

Hidden Costs of the RCS Bottle Blitz

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

RCS Bottle Blitz
Ill-Conceived, Ignorant, and Destructive!

When asked several times on the RCS Friends and More Facebook site, Cathy Deluca refused to respond to the question, “How much money did the Bottle Blitz make?” Her response was, “Just ignore him.” Apparently it’s a big secret (like so much else surrounding her activities. See our article, Asskissers: No Answers, Just Censorship.). She wasn’t asked what the cost of the RCS Bottle Blitz might be. So we’re providing an estimate of the devastating cost of Deluca’s RCS Bottle Blitz.

In a recent CNN report Soft drinks: Public enemy No.1 in obesity fight? (CNN Fri April 27, 2012) Caleb Helleman writes:”Meanwhile, about 1 in 4 Americans gets at least 200 calories a day from sugary drinks. These numbers, along with work like Stanhope’s, gives ammunition to doctors and public health officials who say soda should be treated as public health enemy No. 1.”

Of course, CocaCola, the world’s largest soft-drink manufacturer takes a different view, saying: “There is no scientific evidence that connects sugary beverages to obesity,” says Katie Bayne, Coca-Cola’s president of sparkling beverages in North America, in an exclusive interview.” While Samantha Levine, spokesperson for New York mayor Bloomberg, says “Coke’s numbers have more fizz than fact. “The fact remains,” she says, “sugary beverages are a key driver of the obesity crisis that is killing 5,800 New Yorkers and costing the city $4 billion annually.”

According to an article published in the New York Times, “Soda: A Sin We Sip Instead of Smoke?” (Mark Bittman, February 13, 2012): “The problem is that at roughly 50 gallons per person per year, our consumption of soda, not to mention other sugar-sweetened beverages, is far from moderate, and appears to be an important factor in the rise in childhood obesity.

Fat in a Can!

This increase is at least partly responsible for a rise in what can no longer be called “adult onset” diabetes — because more and more children are now developing it.” The article continues, “Last week, the Obama administration announced a plan to ban candy and sweetened beverages from schools. A campaign against childhood obesity will be led by the first lady, Michelle Obama. And a growing number of public health advocates are pushing for even more aggressive actions, urging that soda be treated like tobacco: with taxes, warning labels and a massive public health marketing campaign, all to discourage consumption.”

Agendas like the RCS Bottle Blitz are in direct contravention and opposition to the White House, especially First Lady Michelle Obama’s focused campaign on health and nutrition, the National Institutes of Health, and public health efforts to stem the epidemic of obesity and related  health problems, and alcohol related morbidity and mortality, especially in young persons!

What about beer cans and bottles? Alcohol consumption can affect the individual, family, community in many ways, ranging from relatively minor consequences to incapacitation and even death, and the consumption doesn’t have to be extreme nor does it have to be “alcoholism.” The disease potentially affects everything in a person’s life, as the consequences of drinking snowball into bigger and bigger problems. There is a definite sense of progression with the effects that alcoholism has on an individual. Over the long run, things always get worse….never better.

Brewing for Trouble!
Potential Corpses in a Can!

To get some idea of the cost of alcohol abuse, the National Institutes of Health NIH released a report “Economic Costs of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Estimated at $246 Billion in The United States,”  which states that: “The new study reports that alcohol abuse and alcoholism generated about 60 percent of the estimated costs ($148 billion), while drug abuse and dependence accounted for the remaining 40 percent ($98 billion).” Here’s the real sock-it-to-me: Those figures were for 1998! Imagine what they in today’s figures! (Here’s a hint: The update calculations indicate that costs of alcohol abuse grew from $148 billion in 1992 to $185 billion in 1998, approximately a 25 percent increase, for an average annual increase of 3.8 percent. Source: Economic Costs of Alcohol and Drug Abuse (2002))

Alcohol abuse produces its evil effects mentally, physically, socially, spiritually. The overall cost to our society from alcoholism:

1) Lost time and money
2) Lost lives
3) Broken homes and families
4) Lost productivity (missed days of work, lost jobs, etc.)
5) Litigation and criminal costs

And don’t you wonder: How many of those cans and bottles were drained by underage kids? How much dangerous sex occurred after downing a couple of brews? How many jumped behind the wheel to drive?

About 5000 teenagers die every year due to alcohol use. In 2008, 11,773 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (32%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States. (Source: SADD Underage Drinking).

Teens who are drinking are more likely to have unprotected sex, which can lead to potentially fatal sexually transmitted diseases, as well as unwanted pregnancies. (For more information on teenager alcohol related deaths see Teen Alcohol Abuse).

Headlines like the San Francisco Chronicle’s “Teenage Drinking a U.S. Epidemic” [2/26/02] and the New York Post’s “Boozed-Up Teens In Dangerous Liaisons,” [2/7/02] shout along with the advocates’ PR campaigns, often including hyped-up quotes from people like the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA)’s head Joe Califano, such as “Alcohol is the fatal attraction for many teens.”

So, for those of you who come up with the stock response, “personal,” “political,” “private vendetta,” or some similar stupidity to anything that anyone says against the idiotic and poorly planned projects some misguided adults in this community come up with to raise money for the district’s children, we’d like to point out that national and well-established statistics point to the fact that soft drinks and alcohol are time bombs.

This raises the question, then, of the appropriateness and the ethics of collecting empty containers that once contained the dangerous substances to raise money for programs for children! Here’s the logic: To get empty cans and bottles, the cans and bottles first have to be purchased. They then have to be transported. Then their contents are consumed by adults or by minors. Once they’re in the body, they work their evil magic: obesity, diabetes, drunkenness, death, etc.

BUT:

All those pretty cans and bottles are given positive value by the program organizers, especially in the children’s innocent eyes, because those emptied containers are associated with field trips, fun,  friends! You are, in fact, positively reinforcing a misinformed positive image for the causes of major public health problems!

In other words, the RCS Bottle Blitz is sending the WRONG MESSAGE! It’s providing negative education and working against all public health efforts to curb soft-drink and alcohol consumption based on solid scientific evidence! It’s teaching those innocent vulnerable minds that soft drinks and alcohol are good, and they should be purchased and consumed, because the empty containers make happy things happen. What are you people thinking!!!!

What are you morons thinking?

In the July 19th News Herald, a newspaper that provides information and, Yes! education, features a large color photograph of Ms Cathy Deluca, the “inspired” organizer of the RCS Bottle Blitz, together with Lorraine Misuraca (not to be confused with Jenafer “Jena”Misuraca, who has served as the VP on  one of the RCS school PTO’s. Jena had to shut down the PBC PTO’s FaceBook page because of the arguing), posing stupidly self-satisfied in front of what are described as “47 bags of bottles and cans and 74 cases.” You don’t need a magnifying glass to make out the beer labels and the soda cans. And the title reads, “Bottle Blitz is huge success.” Not for your children’s health, not for the mortality statistics, not for the public’s health. But maybe for the misguided public image of a couple of ignorant residents and the bottom line of the beer brewers and the soda manufacturers, the manufacturers of corn syrups, and retailers.

The RCS Bottle Blitz is irresponsible and misleading in many ways and does not represent good education nor the interests of the children it’s publicized to benefit!

Now, our scathing question is not what was going on in the editor’s pinhead, nor what Cathy Deluca was thinking (that’s scary in itself), but where are the educators, the teachers in all of this. Shouldn’t those highly paid, highly educated, highly paid morons have come out with some facts and figures, some options, some alternatives? Oh! Excuse me! They have the summer off, don’t they.

The Editor

Challenge: Ms Cathy Deluca, Lorraine Misuraca, Superintendent Elizabeth Smith, Melanie Lekocevic we and our readers would like to hear your response to this article. Please send us your comments. Warning: And, given the atmosphere in the RCS school district, please don’t point a finger at the RCS board of education for not having stepped up to prevent this ill-conceived fiasco. You know as well as we do that if any BoE member, other than the teacher’s clique (by the way, where was Whalen, Engel, the teachers when this was being proposed? Teddy Reville, James Latter?)  lifted so much as a finger to point out the risks of the Bottle Blitz, he or she would have been lynched by the Coeymanazis. So don’t try to pull that one on us, Deluca and friends.

Gee! Was it something I said?

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

 The Times Union, Including Its Blogs, Continues to be the Scatological Source in the Capital Region. It’s now the home to about 15-20 Sadomasochists Who Banter and Batter Each Other in About 105 Lunatic Comments.

And You Do, Times Union!

The majority of the Times Useless RCS School Budget blog appear to be schizophrenics, each part of their schizoid brains using a different pseudonum and talking to the other part; they’re literally talking to the voices in their heads. And what’s even more hilarious is that these same looney toons have assumed oxymoronic names like “Sanity,” “Positivity,” and “RCSLady.” It’s a really popular blog (NOT!)and they have all of about 100 comments since May 2nd!  Being a care-provider by nature and training, I tried to engage them in conversation but the Times Useless blog moderator keeps deleting my comments. Was it something I said? Should I feel hurt about this? Here’s my most recent comment that, like the others (see my article: Times Union Doesn’t Like My Comments…) it disappeared while in moderation:

Let’s do some math. OK? There are about 12-15 commentors on this [the Times Useless] blog; some of you with multiple handles to make the impression that there are more of you. We’ve seen it all before; that lunatic Joan Ross in New Baltimore has found a new sandbox to litter in, and that psycho-delinquent-lurker comment-troll Tim Houghtaling (he’s still ignoring the warnings) does the same thing on the Smalbany blog. The Smalbany blog has almost 21,000 readers in about 1-1/2 months. We’d say that that’s not all that paltry for a blog of very local intererst, wouldn’t you? And the comments are all very positive; sure there are a few negatives but this blog seems to have the monopoly on bellyaching and negativity. Mostly because it’s all unsubstantiated gossip and rumor, something that would be unconditionally disallowed on the Smalbany blog. Most of you would have been banned long ago because you don’t make any sense! All speculation, accusation, rumor-mongering. At least most of the Smalbany blog people use their own names!

When you can’t handle abstracts and you are confused by the concepts, the ignorant automatically attack the person–ad hominem is what it’s called–it’s the lowest form of debate, and that’s what’s going on here. You’re not functioning with intellect, your flooding each other with infantile emotions. Grow up! Grow a pair! Wake up or shut up! Deal with the facts; offer some documentation, cite some sources (besides your lunatic pen pals). If you’re so worried about who the blogger is and are so concerned about his/her using his/her real name, don’t you think it a bit incredible that you all are doing exactly what you complain the blogger is doing: you’re all hiding behind fake names! Why is that, we wonder? You call the blogger a “coward” but what does that make you?

Furthermore, if you think you have such strong arguments, why don’t you just make a good argument in a comment for the Smalbany blog…not a rant…an intelligent comment. Try using your real name and let some of the 20000+ readers take a stab at it. That’s a challenge, everyone, go for it!

If you don’t have the URL for the blog, here it is: Smalbany.

Write a sensible, cogent, factual comment and handle the feedback. That’s something new for you! Use your real name, for once, and show the blogger that you can put your “principles” where your mouths are. Try it and we’ll hope it becomes habit.

My bet is that you’ll avoid the challenge–especially because the blog is restricted to adults and warns students and minors to leave immediately. I suspect many of you are the RCS students who have been banned from the blog.

Peace!

P.s. The Smalbany blog is really quite well done and well written. Several of the local television anchors have commented positively about it. It counts among its visitors the NYSED, the Albany County DA’s office, the FBI, BOCES, many local residents, and a growing number of international visitors. It’s putting RCS on the map! Isn’t that great, people!

Peace!

We did manage to go to the Times Useless archives and find a group photo of the Times Useless blog commentors. You may recognize one or two of them from the RCS teachers association or the general area.

Times Useless Commentors.
Do you recognize any of them?

Well, there is a positive side to this: At least those crazies have  found a place where they can really feel at home, and the Times Useless has a readership of its own. We can be grateful they’re not here!

Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!

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

This Post Published By So-called School “Teacher” Josephine O’Connor Is A Testimony To The Addled And Confused State Of Some Of The RCS CSD Teachers To Whom School Children Are Exposed On A Daily Basis.

THIS is FAT, Josephine! So Shut Up, Already!

This so-called “teacher’s” idea of a “teachable moment” is protesting her lack of self-esteem, her “weight problem” and “yelling the insult up and down” a “hot hallway full of people waiting for election results.” This is a real RCS role model at work!

If this is representative of the mental coherence and level of self-esteem of even one teacher in the cohort at RCS it is pitiful This post is being published only because Ms O’Connor actually invited it’s publication! [Editor’s Note: We avoided fixing any of the grammar or editing any of the content so that the reader can appreciate the contradictions, the confusion, the perverse irrationality of the post. We’d also ask you to note below those who are responding and to compare the names on the list of Pieter B. Coeymanazis on the PTO who feel that bullying children and local businesses are also “teaching moments.”]

Before you read O’Connor’s post and our comments, we would like to inform you that we have received information that Ms O’Connor is not entirely truthful in her posting; she is not a teacher in the RCS CSD or anywhere else (In her posting she states “Since I am a teacher…Where do you teach, Josephine?!?!)! In fact, she is not a teacher but the RCS BoE board member who arrived late (“Not in attendance at the start of the meeting… O’Connor, it turned out, would later make the meeting and turn the tide on a crucial vote….Just before nine p.m., board member Josephine O’Connor arrived and apologized for not being in attendance for the bulk of the meeting due to other obligations and asked that the board go into executive session so she could be brought up to speed on what had occurred.” See this link Daily Mail, April 26, 2012. O’Connor had the unenviable reputation for being absent or late for BoE meetings.) with some display to break the tie vote on the most recent exhorbitant RCS CSD 2012-13 school budget; furthermore, Ms O’Connor, as a sitting board member voted to give her husband, a teacher in the RCS district, tenure–an act that is somewhat questionable, ethically speaking, since her vote to give her husband tenure was tainted by personal gain and vested, conflicted  interest; ethically, she should have abstained from that vote O’Connor didn’t run in May 2012; apparently she was satisfied with the damage she had already done, and she got her husband tenure so why stay?

Now let’s move on to Ms O’Connor’s posting…we comment in green:

“I am so proud of everyone that worked so hard on the budget. You made a huge difference in people’s lives. [Editor’s Note: Yeah! Can’t wait to see the difference it makes!]

“On another note…

“I want to talk about what was said to me tonight while waiting for the results. A fellow board member asked me why I hadn’t called him back on the telephone. Frankly, after being verbally abused and berated at a board meeting, I don’t feel comfortable calling him. I only want to talk to him with others present because of how I have been treated in the past month. [Editor’s Note: Do you have the date of that BoE meeting? We’d like to review it in order to confirm your statements. You’ve lied already once in this posting.]

“So I replied that I wouldn’t be calling him, that emailing would suffice. [Editor’s Note: Now that’s mature; and real leadership behavior. It’s called avoidance and is a type of denial behavior; very common in the RCS district. Probably why nothing constructive gets done.]
He looked at me and said “it looks like you’ve put on some weight” and turned away.  [Editor’s Note: Any witnesses to the actual statement? That would lend some credibility to this report.] Now, if you think I’m posting this because the specific insult bothered me, you’d be wrong. [Editor’s Note: Really? Well that’s not what we get from the rest of your rant below.] Instead of being reduced to tears or standing shamefully [Editor’s Note: We hope you don’t teach English!]  in the corner, which is what I gather he expected me to do, I did something that I have never done before. [Editor’s Note: As an adult, we would hope not but you do something even more childish, immature, and absolutely SILLY!]

“In that hot hallway full of people waiting for election results, I raised my voice and said “hey everyone: Member of the Board X just said I look like I put on weight, anyone else want to chime in?” I yelled the insult up and down the hallway. I invited anyone who wanted to agree with his judgement of me to jump right in. Simply calling the insult on the carpet gave me a sense of liberation that was amazing. I did it because what was said to me shows what a kind of person that HE is, not me. [Editor’s Note: No, Ms O’Connor, you just made a DumbAss out of yourself, an histrionic spectacle, which is why this post was sent to us: You made yourself laughable with your clownlike display!]

“Since I’m a teacher, I just had to write this; it’s a teachable moment. [Editor’s Note: OMIGOD! She claims to be  an RCS teacher doing this! Am I really surprised? And this is what RCS calls a “teachable moment.” Puhleez! More like a lunatic moment!]

“To even think that I would be embarrassed by being called fat in 2012 is the joke here. [Editor’s Note: But you obviously did, on fair assessment of what you’re writing in this post!] I thought: “that’s all ya got?” My weight? I would laugh if it weren’t such a tragic commentary on the nature of misogyny, which is alive and well I might add. [Editor’s Note: But what about your own self-esteem problem? Even if there were “mysogyny,” wouldn’t a competent, mature adult, a teacher no less, come up with a better public statement than “yell[ing] the insult up and down the hallway”? Most of us would agree that there are more adult ways of expressing one’s self.]

“That’s right, a fellow board member couldn’t think of anything intelligent to say so he insulted my physical appearance. That’s all he had to try and hurt me with. [Editor’s Note: We don’t know you but are you overweight? Is that your own body image? It seems you have an unhealthy fixation on your physical appearance as representing your self or your essence to the detriment of any other qualities. is that so? Sounds like a really big problem, Josephine. How will you manage in a high school with all those slim divas around you?]

“To all of the little girls, young women, middle-aged women, old women who have been verbally pummeled and made to feel less-than for any reason: try yelling the insults from the rooftops. [Editor’s Note: No. Please don’t try that. It’s likely to get you arrested and comitted for psychiatric observation. Have more dignity and you’ll be taken more seriously. And Ms Josephine O’Connor, please don’t teach that sort of behavior to students, they have enough problems finding positive role models as it is!] Because those words have nothing to do with you and everything to do with the awful, twisted, weak-minded and hateful person spewing them. [Editor’s Note: Well, Josephine, that’s not the message you shared in this post! You seem to have thought it had a lot to do with YOU, and the fact you’re sharing it seems to reinforce that observation.] I hope that you find sense of exhilaration that comes from knowing that only your own opinion of yourself counts.” [Editor’s Note: That’s exactly the problem with society today: teachers encourage students not to live, work, and associate as members of community but to isolate themselves as being self-important. The very basics of ethics is missing in that statement! Josephine O’Connor, you are an endangerment to the youth of this community! You obviously never took an ethics course!]

Ms O’Connor concludes her post with the words, “Feel free to pass this along.” We have done that. Thank you, Josephine!

Of course, the usual Coeymanazis chimed in with their usual bovine mooing of chagrin and disgust: Cathy [Long] DeLuca (of all people! and with her history!), Sarah Berchtold Engel, and a couple of others commented, though not on the substance of the post from what we could read. But if you know any of the main commenters named above, you’d wonder why they would want to direct attention to themselves! Especially when weight is the subject!

This is no joke; Josephine O’Connor is a not a real-life teacher (she lied in her posting), but she really did post the message on FaceBook, on an account called “Save the Arts at RCS.”

Read a companion article on another crown dingleberry of the RCS CSD, Matt Miller, self-proclaimed atheist teacher and president of the teachers association (just a nice way of saying teachers union!) at Matt Miller: “I Seen The BLOGGER!!!!”
