Let Him or Her…Cast the First Stone … (John 8:7)

You All Behaved Like Animals, Like A Lynch Mob, Including Partisan BoE Members Alice Whalen, Howard Engel, and Edward Reville, When Attacking the Board’s Majority Decision to Hire Mr Alan McCartney as the New Interim Superintendent.
(Democratic Process is OK…
As Long As It Goes Your Way.)

If You Live in a Glass House…

So Many of You Called Him Immoral, Unethical, etc. But I Know of Many of Your Own Personal Histories And You Live in Glass Houses and Shouldn’t Be Casting Stones.

Some of the gals shouting the loudest have some pretty unsavory pasts, so before you speak and before I let the pussy out of the bag, you’d better think about what you say. There are plenty of guys with stories about you (I just may be one of them).

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

Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk [Very Personal] Musings

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

This Is Going to be a Plainer Posting than You’re Used To. The Reason May Be the Lackluster Subject or Because the Individuals Simply Defy Description, They’re So Bizarre and Scary.

This one’s for you, Cupcake!

They’re the Coeymanazis, the Women and Eunuchs of
Cathy Deluca’s Coeymanazi Cupcake Club a.k.a.
“Save the Arts at RCS”
(the Arts of Deception and Hypocrisy) and
“RCS Sports Association”
(Where Anything or Anyone is ‘Fair Game’!)

Whalen offers toxic apples!

RCS Board of Education Teachers Clique Deceit: And as for Alice Whalen’s big mouth: Alice, for all you have to say, didn’t YOU review all of the applications submitted for the business manager (you were all confusing the numbers at the meeting)? So wouldn’t you have also had the opportunity to have reviewed the applications for interim superintendent, too? If so, did you? That’s not what we heard from you, Alice. And unless the RCS board of education website is not up-to-date, Jeff Luckens chairs the personnel committee, and Howard Engel and Edward Reville are the other two members. So what’s the beef, people, you’re all bitching about the selection but YOU run the committee, Engel, Reville must have reviewed the applications or should have, and Whalen could have reviewed all of the applications! So SHUT UP you deceitful dregs!

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.”

The Deluca Bottle Blitz…Or Is It the RCS Bottle Scam?

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

We Find It Extremely Important Not Only to Expose the Evil in the Community but Also to Share Some of Our Readers’ Responses to What is Going On In the RCS Community. Here’s A Contribution From One Of Our Readers on the RCS Bottle Blitz that Raises Some Interesting Questions and is Really Worth Reading.

There’s Something Below the Surface

 To Understand What’s Really Going On and to Get A Real Feel for the Consequences, You Simply Have to Get Below The Surface. A Beautiful Calm Sea May Be Hiding A Very Hungry Shark.

One of our regular commentors, Pundit, pointed out some very interesting points, which we’d like to publish on their own, because they’re so on target. Pundit writes in response to our article Bottle Blitz Secret is Out…

Bottle Collection Question:

I wonder if I would be able to obtain a receipt for any deposit bottles and/or cans I leave so that I can use it as a donation write off on my Income Taxes? Not being a Tax authority, I would have to guess that the group collecting the bottles would need to keep track of how much was ‘donated’ for their tax return too.

This stuff can really get sticky.

Actually, it would seem if I gave say $100(2000-Five Cent containers) in deposit containers I would have spent money to purchase the product meaning I would -once again- be giving a portion of my earnings directly to what would need to be a not-for-profit/for profit organization which, in turn is passing it on to the RCS District, meaning I have now transferred $100 more of my money to the District.

It just keeps getting better and better with each passing day!

We responded:

Thank you very much, Pundit, for a very clear and correct analysis of the bottom-line problem we’re dealing with in this case.

You see, you pay the deposit up front when you purchase the beverage, as a pledge to return the can or bottle, at which time you will receive your pledge, the deposit, back. Now, if you give the right to that deposit away, for example, when you make a charitable contribution by giving away your say, 2000 bottles and cans, equivalent to a cash contribution of $100, and the recipient in turn redeems the 2000 bottles and cans for their value of $100 in cash, that becomes revenue or income. In the case where they say they are doing this not for themselves but on behalf of say, a group or organization, what then? Someone has to keep track of the money trail. If you make a charitable donation of $100 wouldn’t you want to be able to deduct that amount from your taxes? But you’d need a receipt to claim that safely.

And the individuals collecting the proceeds, how are they handling the revenue? Are they redeeming the bottles for cash? Do they get a check?

You’re being followed!

Who deposits the check? Into a personal account or into a program account? Who then becomes responsible for the taxable income? If it goes into a personal account or a business account and that business writes out a check to say, the Sports Association or to the School District, does the writer of the check then take advantage of the tax benefit of the “charitable donation” to the SA or the CSD? Does it then become income for the Sports Association or the school district, and if so, is the Sports Association required to keep books and to report the income? (Yes! they are!)

Basic question: Who gets the advantage of using the charitable donation deduction? The people contributing the bottles and cans are certainly not getting any benefits.

Great questions, great analysis, great points, Pundit! Let’s see if we get any answers.

The Editor

It’s Coming. Are You Ready?

At this point I’d really like to remind all of you disgustingly self-righteous guardians of the public morals that only a couple of months ago you all were fired up, together with that skank-gossip-monger-in-tow Dayelin Roman at the Times Useless, and turned into a veritable lynch mob ready to string up a local businessperson on the board of education for appealing, read APPEALING, his tax assessments. Isn’t it funny that a select group of you are all too ready to forgive the “old” RCS Sports Association and cast a blind eye on the “new” RCS Sports Association (for trying the same unlawful and deceitful tricks), and the DeLuca Bottle Blitz for worse misconduct? Some of you are all too ready to have double standards and that should make the rest of us very uncomfortable. It’s worse still because the RCS Sports Association and the Deluca RCS Bottle Blitz are so publicly visible, and any misconduct by them really has a very bad effect on the community as a whole, but inflicts a really ugly scar on any group claiming to benefit the schools, students, and students’ activities. Organizations like the RCS Sports Association and projects like the RCS Bottle Blitz must be held to an even higher standard than ordinary businesses!

So, Cathy Deluca and your supporters, RCS Sports Association and supporters, RCS loud-mouth coaches, and teachers clique: What are your answers to these questions? They’d better be good!

But wait a minute! Don’t Cathy Deluca and Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca claim to have several businesses, including the so-called DeLuca Public Affairs (no pun intended!), the Main Street Small Business Coalition, and isn’t old Dirty-Hands Jerry connected with the ARANY (the Automotive Recycling Association of New York) as a “consultant,” (in What? may we ask!), the New York State Assembly, etc? And doesn’t old Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca claim to work closely, to have an “in” with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (the DEC)? Isn’t Edward “Teddy” Reville is the Protective and Marine Coatings Manager for eastern New York, Vermont and western Massachusetts with the Sherwin-Williams Company? Isn’t James Latter an engineer with GE? Aren’t Alice Whalen (retired) and Howard Engel teachers? You’d expect these people to recognize and acknowledge all of the good sense behind RFPs (requests for proposals), insurance, documentation of organization, etc. but why are they opposing all of the businesspersons on the board of education (who are not teachers or married to a teacher) when the board of education calls for it. Whalen, Latter, Reville all voted against it! Why are they opposing the board of education’s demands for proof of organization, lists of officers, proof of tax filing? Shouldn’t they be supporting all of this tooth and claw? What are they hiding, who are they protecting? What’s their agenda? Maybe you should be asking Mrs Deluca, Mr Deluca, Mr Reville, Mr Latter, Ms Whalen, Mr Engel? What’s the deal? What’s your agenda?

And RCS board of education members, how are you going to handle this problem BEFORE it becomes a thorny public concern complete with audits and investigations? Are you going to stand your ground and demand answers, documentation? Are you going to oppose the teachers clique and the easy-sleazy superintendent and demand accountability from any organization dealing with the schools?

That’s why, dear readers, the non-teacher, resident / businesspersons on the RCS Board of Education, Robbins, Lukens, Sylvester, Randy K., Vadney–, are demanding that organizations and anyone claiming to be doing something “for the kids” or for the schools cough up proof that it’s entirely legitimate and legal. Get it now?

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

It’s Just Good Business Practice. So WHY…?

Federal, State and Local Governments (Except Coeymans, Maybe) Asks for Bids from Contractors. Employers Ask for Applications and Résumés When Hiring. We Shop Around When We Buy A Car. We Get Estimates For the New Roof. Why?

Make Them Beg to Provide!
RFPs Stimulate Competition & Improve Quality

So that we know who we’re dealing with and what we’re getting for our money. That’s why. It’s only common sense and good business practice. Wouldn’t you agree? The local self-made business owners and operators agree. But the parasite professions, the teachers clique, don’t. Why? Because they’ve never had to think about where the money’s coming from or how to manage it! They have no practical experience!

So, a group comes along and offers to put your roof on just for what it costs in materials. They’ll do the labor for nothing. All you have to do is provide the power for the equipment and they’ll do the rest. Skeptical? And you should be!

Who are these people? What are their skills? Do they know what they’re doing or will they do more damage than repairs? What if someone gets hurt? Are they insured? Where are they getting their materials? How are you protected? Good questions, right?

But that’s exactly what the RCS Sports Association is doing…asking everyone to take a very big risk, even when we know all about it’s past shadey practices. But the RCS Board of Education is saying NO! The Board of Education is saying that certain standards have to be met and there are no favorites; the public must be protected because the risks are so high.

Now that sounds like good common sense to us…but some people, like the RCS coaches and their cronies like Dirty Hands Jerry Deluca, Ron Racey, Gerry Perrine, Gary Vanderzee, and Howard Engel Jr turn good sense into a personal attack–it’s their standard tactic and they throw it out there every time, even though its a loser. Why is that?

Teachers Clique Sticks Together

And then, we have the teachers clique on the board of education who like a good bunch of Nazis, stick together like flies on shit, and whatever the resident/non-teachers suggest, they vote it down, even when it’s good business and common sense! Here’s an example straight from the July 10th meeting:

On a motion to put out an RFP (request for proposal) to outside vendors to supply food at sports activities, a very good idea and it stimulates local businesses to compete and to showcase their products at local events, the resident/non-teachers all voted YES! but the teachers clique, James Latter, Edward Reville, Alice Whalen all voted NO! Why on earth would the teachers clique vote no on such a sensible proposal? We know why and you know why…

Looking Brighter

Fortunately, the YES! vote won and the district will be asking local vendors to submit their proposals for providing hospitality at sports events. Now Diane Malecki has to solicit interest through a request for proposal (RFP) process for vendors at the High School fields concession stands. Great job!

Another motion was made to give the RCS Sports Association the privilege of using RCS school facilities… you know the bunch who refused to disclose how much money was taken in and how it was spent; the same bunch who lied about their non-profit registrations; the same bunch who would not produce their tax filings, etc. The same ones who, though illegal, spent RCS Sports Association money promoting certain political campaigns. Yeah, that bunch.

The RCS Sports Association is not an official organization of the RCS school district and must be treated like any other outside operator or organization. Dirty Hands Jerry Deluca and the so-called coaches are going nutzo now, because the RCS Sports Association is being told to cough up the necessary documents and is being made to play fairly like everyone else. Too bad! This is riling up certain groups that benefit from the RCS Sports Association’s activities, like the political interests, for example. That’s a big NO-NO! But now that they’re getting all this attention, they’re pissed as a bunch of hornets and just as nasty.

When the motion came up to add the RCS Sports Association to the so-called Fee Schedule for Use of School Facilities, the vote again went in favor of the community and the teachers clique lost:

The residents group on the board of education voted NO! and the RCS Sports Association is off the list until they comply with policy, procedures, and the law. Of course this really pissed off the teachers clique, James Latter, Edward Reville, Alice Whalen who all voted YES ! for their little pets, and Ron Racey, Gerry Perrine, Gary Vanderzee, and Howard Engel all threw hissy fits! Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca even wrote an idiotic, illiterate letter to the editor that the News Herald published, to its own embarassment. Looks like the political favors and the easy money are things of the past. The world is looking so much brighter!

 Looks like the new majority on the board of education is making a real effort at cleaning house when it comes to getting rid of the corruption and crookedness that has infested the school distict and the schools for years, now. With the audits and investigations that have either already been done or are in process and those that are in the making, RCS should have a pretty squeaky clean operation soon enough.

Running Scared

It looks like the community, too, is seeing through the smoke screen created by the teachers clique and the Delucas and the Coeymanazis. There’s growing support for the new majority on the board of education and the crooks and liars are feeling the heat; they’re running scared and lying really low. Some, like Dirty Hands Jerry Deluca allegedly have been told by the godfathers to shut up and stay out of sight. In fact, Deluca’s recent appearance in the form of a letter to the editor was a rare event since he had been in hiding for a number of weeks, not being seen at any local meetings. Things are really looking good.

Other Coeymanazis like Matt “the Mutt” Miller, Donna Leput-Hommel, the Dave and Amy Bartlett, Bill McFerran (at least until the old RCS Sports Association comes under investigation soon), and others have all gone into retirement. The audits and investigations must have really scared the bejezis out of them. Thanks, Pennywise!

Pennywise, the Auding Clown Gonna Gitcha!

The Community Opportunity for Dialogue

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

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

It Usually Takes Someone To Set the Fire

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

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

Cockroach or Coeymanazi?

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

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

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

Cooperate, Collaborate, Communicate!
