Eliminating the Coeymans Police Department

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

A Reader Contributes A Well-Founded Proposal For
Eliminating  the Money-Pit Coeymans Police Department
to Save the Residents of the Town of Coeymans
At Least $2 Million A Year
 

Your Tax Dollars & the Coeymans Police Department
There’s a Better Way!

 The Author Advocates that the $2 Million Dollars Saved Could be Used to Develop Small Businesses, Parks and Recreation, and Historical Sites in the Area to Attract Residents, Businesses and Tourism. Not a Shabby Plan At All.

A Contribution by Laszlo Polyak, Ravena, New York

The blogger recently put out a poll about the Coeymans Police Department and asked whether you are for or against the dissolution of the police department based on the various complaints of police brutality, ineptness, unprofessionalism, lack of training, and violation of civil rights and abuse of citizens and residents.  And the blogger now sarcastically refers to them as the Coeymanazis, and giving some individuals personnel nicknames such as “Dirty Hands.”
 
I grew up in a township with county police only; no village or town police, only county and state police. Perhaps that is why 2 million people moved out of NY. A lot of southern states provide services such as fire, police, paramedics on a county level so people see the benefits and they feel the benefits in their wallets. How? You ask–they pay less taxes! 
 
I find it personally very difficult to write about this, since I have family and friends who carry badges and who range from small town police officers to federal investigators.  For example, I have a cousin who is now retired from the PDNY and also from the FDNY.  Yes, one person, two hats, so there are people out there who experience an event like 9/11 with a whole different meaning, and we can’t fathom what they are thinking when they have lost hundreds of comrades and friends. It’s a different level of experiencing the world, yet they manage to act responsibly and compassionately, respectfully.

But back to the nitty-gritty: I want to take a down-to-earth non-personal dollar-and-cents approach to the idea of dissolving the Coeymans police department.  In the past Mayor John Bruno perhaps said it best when he questioned: “What do I see for my tax dollars?”  And then, a few years later, the village of Ravena dissolved their police department.  Now as a community we financially have to look at what we’re getting for our tax dollars, and ask that and similar questions.  Do we really see our state tax dollars at work when we have an elite force like the New York State Police using their sophisticated and advanced training doing nothing other than handing out  thruway traffic violations?  Do we see our county tax dollars at work via the Albany County Sheriff department, or even through the County District Attorney’s office? You’re probably thinking to yourself, “NO!” But you’re paying for all of it…at least 4 times for the same services. Smart, eh? Why don’t you do that for a quart of milk, a shirt, a car? Because it’s stupid!
 
In extremely hard financial times where people are losing their homes to back taxes or simply because they don’t have a job or have one that pays crappola! Imagine losing your home for a few hundred dollars and then our taxes going up and up and up. This might be a good time to ask that burning question: “Did you see all the For Sale signs go up  after the shool budget vote?”  Do we want to keep or disolve our Coeymans Police Department based on financial cost versus the benefits versus the same services by the New York State Police or the Albany County Sheriff’s department, who would provide the same services but from local satellite offices (just like the New York State Police and the Greene County Sheriff has done in neighboring New Baltimore).
 
For more than 20 years I have looked at the annual budget of the town of coeymans. And I have seen the spending go up and up.  Some frustrating by unfunded mandates.  So let me break down what I estimate the entire cost of running the police department is today.  Out of a reported $5 million town budget, approximately $750,000 for police salaries alone. (Compare that with more than $41 million for the RCS central school district budget! The school budget is more than 8 times that of the entire Town of Coeymans!) At the time of this writing, I am still waiting for the Town of Coeymans to respond to a F.O.I.L. (Freedom of Information Law) request for the W-2s of Coeymans Police department personnel.  I was told it would take another two weeks.  So I can only guestimate at the dispatch salaries which could be as much as $450,000 including secretarial salaries, etc. [Editor’s Note: According to SeeThrough NY, the 19 employees at the Coeymans Police Department total a crushing $650,000 in salaries) Then you have the cost of the vehicles, the cost of maintaining the vehicles that run 24/7 (tires, tune ups, oil change, etc.), not to mention the gas and the mileage covering the township in the rural and farm areas.  Then there is the maintenance for radio equipment, ongoing training, retirement fund, health benefits, and routine court and law suits.  That adds up to $2.2 to $2.4 million dollars.  I stand corrected by a $100,000 or so since I am still waiting for actual receipts.  The point is this: About half of the town budget, at least, is going to support the Coeymans Police Department. Are we that crime-ridden, are we that much of a gang of hoodlums that we need to spend that much on law enforcement? Can we afford to maintain a police department for a mere 8,000 people?  Perhaps we should look into turning over the operations to the Albany County Sheriff’s Department or the New York State Police or both and invite them to use our present law enforcement installations and offices. 
 
And that’s what the Blogger is asking in the police poll, that’s the poll question: Would you support a referendum to eliminate the Coeymans Police Department? Would you support the ballot to turn over law enforcement to the professionals of the Albany County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police? Do you want to disolve it and turn it over or not??? For me I have a handful of honest issues. 

Always Professional & Constantly Training

One of the top of my list is that we train officers and then they go off to other police departments/agencies; Coeymans is simply not a major career goal. If the officer is good and has a future, after he or she gets some experience, they go elsewhere.  And we are constantly doing the training.  And this is where minor to major civil rights violations have occurred; because the Coeymans Police are either rejects from other departments or are in their training training phase, we are sued for their lack of training.  And police training is continuous. I has to be! This situation not only expensive, it’s frustrating because we can’t retain the good, civic-minded, competent, intelligent police officers.   And now the facts indicate that that even our elected officials have neglected the requirement for a policy and procedures on who reports to whom, and how citizens’ complaints, yours and mine, are handled.  The patrol man answers to the sargeant, who answers to the police chief, the chief answers to the elected officials in this case the Town Supervisor and the town board. But according to information received from the Town of Coeymans, no one seems to know anything concrete about who reports to whom and what the chain-of-command might be. The result: chaos! And lawsuits! And civil rights violations! And miscarriages of justice! You name it Coeymans has it!
 
Another issue is that we have reports that the Coeymans Police Department selectively takes complaints, that is, police department employees tend to decide whether or not you’re going to get law enforcement services when you ask for them.  And that to me is totally unprofessional and biased–it’s also unlawful. If this happens to you then you must request assistance from the New York State Police or the Albany County Sheriff’s Office (although one Sheriff’s department employee who is also a part-time Coeymans Police Officer–and married to chief Darlington’s sister, recently refused to take a harassment complaint from a local woman). And then, please file a complaint with the FBI!

If somebody came by and asked me to sign a petition to dissolve the Coeymans Police Department, I sadly admit, there would be no compelling reason not to sign it, and I would sign it.  I would rather deal with the New York State Police or the Albany County Sheriff’s Department.  It would be unlikely that we would experience the personal bias or “get even” mentality based on gossip that 90% of the time results in retaliation, intimidation, and coercion by the local police. 

Let’s Talk
Dollars & Cents

But more realistically to me I would be opting for a more efficient and productive use of my county and state tax dollars and looking at a potential savings of at least $2 million of our town tax dollars that could be better spent promoting small businesses, to development of our beautiful parks and our waterfront, to restoration of some of the beautiful historical sites in our midst. The $2 million dollars saved could be used to nurture pride in our town, and when you’re proud of your town, you’ll have a measurable increase in your own self-esteem, self-respect, and love for your neighbor. So when you look at it in dollars and cents, it makes sense very good sense to dissolve the Coeymans Police Department.  Not because one guy has “Dirty Hands,” or another guy harasses little old ladies, or because we personally have experienced civil rights violations or even profiling of one sort or another, or even if the Smalbany Blogger rightly or wrongly calls the Coeymans Police the Coeymansnazis. We also have to take a good hard look at the abuses and violations, real ones and potential ones, that come with the confusion and indifference we see in the Coeymans administration and the Coeymans Police Department. One example it the rubber-stamp approval of the Coeymans Police Department’s request for an increase in petty cash from $300 to $1000! There’s no way that $1000 can be considered “petty cash,” at least not according to all the accounting books I’ve read!

But, seriously, I think we should all provide our input on the poll because I’m curious about what the results of the poll would be, aren’t you?
 
These unfunded mandates are going to continue to go up and up and I doubt very much gasoline prices are going to go down.  So as a community we have to discuss this and if we do dissolve our inefficient, expensive Coeymans Police Department, then we must also make efforts to assist those persons who are left jobless with job placement elsewhere, perhaps somewhere in the community where they can really earn their keep. But to continue running the Coeymans Police Department we have to find justification in funding it, too.
 
We’re all in this mess together, so you have to really give some thought to “What’s your solution to a growing finaical burden?”

LASZLO POLYAK

Editor’s Epilog

Thank you, Mr Polyak, for a well-reasoned and well-written commentary on the present state of affairs of law enforcement in the Town of Coeymans. Your presentation is motivating and stimulates thought about the status quo and ignorance of the facts. Continuing the present situation is  like the reasoning of stopping your watch to save time, or complaining about fuel oil consumption and your fuel bill while still using the 75-year old converted coal boiler and not biting the bullet to install a fuel-efficient heating system. We’re all guilty at one time or another! But we need to make some  sensible decisions real soon or at least discuss alternatives in a constructive and sensible manner. Mr Polyak has provided us with a good start.

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!

Those residents have set up a special e-mail to receive information on what you actually during the time leading up to the voting and at the voting location in the RCS High School. If you experienced anything you consider improper, if you saw any activity you thought was wrong (signs being damaged, for example) or just plain out of place (young people trying to encourage a voter to vote YES!, any political signs in the area of the voting, etc.), or any other irregularity, please write to the e-mail address, rcs.confidential@gmail.com. It is confidential and your name etc. will be kept secret. if you, a family member and or other person(s)  has information in regard to any of the items listed below that you may witnessed prior to or during the voting on the RCS School District Budget. Here are the specific items we need to know about:

Of Incest and Banjos

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

Most Readers Will Relate to the Term “Incest” Sooner Than “Nepotism”  So We Chose to Use Incest Because It Has a Stronger Taboo Associated With It, and It’s Pretty Damned Wierd.
But You’ll Understand When You Read On.

Ravena & Coeymans:
Relaxing after some serious “string-pulling.”

The website for the Village of Ravena sports the heading,

“The Village of Ravena, New York, ‘The Friendship Community'”

Yes, I know, after reading that you’re feeling a bit queasy, nauseous but you still want to burst out either screaming or laughing. Go ahead! Get it out of your system, and then read on. You’ll understand why Ravena calls itself the “Friendship Community,” and why it’s joined at the hip with Coeymans. There they lie, each in the other’s incestuous embrace. As one knowledgeable contributor puts it: “It’s better than banjos!” (making tongue-in-cheek reference to the 1972 thriller movie, “Deliverance”, which features the famous banjo-guitar duel).

First of all, some connections (just as an example). This list is by no means complete; that would take more space than we have here. But it does give you some idea of the visible connections–there’s much more string-pulling (no pun intended) going on behind closed doors!

Warning: If at any time while reading this you hear banjos, be afraid. Be very afraid!

So let’s get started…we’ll start with

  • The Godfather: John J. Biscone, Esq., (now dead) Ravena village attorney into the 90’s ( back When Mayor Bailey was Mayor )
  • Mary Biscone, Democrat clambake fundraiser par excellence, who funded the campaigns for  The Democrat party (locally known as the demo-catic party), long before the RCS Athletic Association started funding selected political campaigns in the RCS district.
  • Brenden Baynes takes over law office of Joe Rotello; Rotello is working as a clerk in the Appeals Court. Rotello was village and town attorney, too for a few years. He also did the real estate for Oakbrook Manor, too, when he was both village and town attoney and working at the Godfather’s and now Michale Biscone’s Ravena law office, that is, until people caught on and raised hell about the nepotism–his father, Tom Rotello was on the Ravena village board.
  • Michael J.Biscone, lawyer in Ravena, younger son of the Godfather John J. Biscone
  • John T. Biscone, lawyer, Michael J.’s older brother, son of the Godfather John J.Biscone
  • Joseph C. Teresi, judge, New York State Supreme Court, Albany County, great friend and collaborator of the Godfather John J. Biscone; Joe Teresi was village/town attorney 25 years ago; worked with Godfather too!
  • Gregory J. Teresi, present Ravena village attorney and Town of Coeymans attorney, son of Joseph C. Teresi
  • Veronica “Ronnie” Fori, Ravena mayor John  T. Bruno’s  mayor’s cousin and royal pain in the arse to a couple of local property owners. This little minx is also alleged to be Jerry Deluca’s premier source on just about everything!
  • Nancy J Bicone-Warner, wife of Village of Ravena justice Harold Warner, is a Biscone and is a substitute teacher at the RCS High School, former Village deputy clerk/treasurer; currently Ravena  trustee (term ends in 2016)
  • Josephine Biscone-Dority married Bill Bruno; Ravena village clerk/treasurer at same time as Nancy Biscone-Warner, and is on RCS library board
  • John T. Bruno, mayor-king of Ravena since 80’s, on the Village board since the mid-70’s
  • Joseph C. Rotello, lawyer in Ravena, is related to the Biscones (cousins)
  • John Neri, deputy mayor in 90’s; Ravena  builder and long-time partner with Michael J. Biscone in Harcone Realty
  • Josie Biscone-Dority-Bruno, Ravena village clerk/treasurer with Nancy Biscone-Warner her deputy; sales associate at Sturges Realty at time of village property sales (see below). “Josie” is now working for Prudential Manor Homes, REALTORS®.
  • George Dardiani, cafeteria manager at the high school and former village judge; his wife is school nurse at PBC; Dardiani has been a Coeymans town justice since ’92, and has been in the thick of this incestuous and corrupt mix for two decades. From his perch, which he shares with the Coeymans Police Department and Coeymans town administration, he has been meting out “justice” in Coeymans without a clue about judicial ethics! Surprising? Shouldn’t be.
  • Enter Phillip Crandell, Coeymans town justice elected last November to be a town justice and acting Ravena village justice (appointed by the Ravena monarch John Bruno).
  • Michael Albano is the son of former justice Sylvester Albano, and is Coeymans town jusice Phillip Crandal’s father-in-law. Michael Albano is the owner of Albano Realty of Ravena (see below).
  • Harry A. Sturges, former town justice and shop teacher at theRCSHigh School, is the owner of Sturges Realty in Ravena. Sturges is now a retired broker.
  • Lous Neri is an attorney who worked with John T. Biscone, and is cousin to John Neri deputy mayor and business partner with Mike Biscone (Editor’s note: this all apparently in violation to the Village of Ravena Code of Ethics (now is that an oxymoron if there ever was one!) written by John J. Biscone, signed by Josie Biscone Dority and in violation of the federal Hatch Act.

Had enough yet? We think so. Now that you have some of the connections let’s move on the second part of our example.

Warning: Are you still listening? If at any time while reading this you hear banjos, be afraid. Be very afraid!

In about 1996 three village-owned properties went on the block for sale when the Village made plans to occupy the former Ravena elementary school on Mountain St. The village properties put up for sale were the old village hall at 171 Main Street, the old police department at 158 Main Street, and  the old fire house at 170 Main Street in Ravena. The question was who would be given the listings to sell the properties. The village put out a request for bids and Albano Realty came back with an offer of 5% commission; Sturges Realty came back with an offer of 10% commission on the sale of the properties. The contract to sell the properties is awarded to Sturges Realty (Harry Sturges) despite the fact that he was the higher bidder. Mayor Bruno was strategically absent from the meeting when then deputy mayor Neri took the issue into executive session and then came out to award the contract to Sturges. It gets better…

Albano very civilly reminds the village that his was the lower bid and understands that the Village ‘may have had other things in mind.’

Josie Biscone-Dority-Bruno, as we mentioned above, was at the time a sales associate at Sturges Realty (former town  justice Harry Sturges) sells the properties and shares the commissions with her associate, Harry Sturges. The buildings sell far below their assessed values.

Here’s why…

Sturges Realty (Harry) buys 171 Main Street for his offices after selling its previous location on 9W to RiteAid. Biscone and Neri buy the 158 Main Street property.  And a third buyer acquires the 170 Main Street property.

The outcome: The village of Ravena disposes of three properties through a bidder who not only submits the higher of the submitted bids, but is a close associate of the village of Ravena and employs a sales associate who is closely associated with the ‘ruling family’ in Ravena and with the incumbent executive (Biscone, Bruno).

Sorry! Couldn’t Hold It!

Then Sturges Realty (Harry Sturges), also with an “in” at Village hall,  picks up one of the properties, 171 Main Street, and two local ‘in the family’ attorneys, Biscone and  John Neri (Harcone Realty), pick up the other property 158 main . Get it? But what’s more, these civic-minded people all purchase the properties at a price much lower than their assessed values (of course, while also avoiding taxes on the assessed value of the properties) and the values of surrounding comparable properties, lowering the values of the surrounding properties, and reducing the tax base overall! We’re doing the history on the third property, the old Ravena fire house at 170 Main Street.

The Lesson (there’s no moral because there’s no morality): You can be very, very unethical without being illegal; and very illegal without being unethical. But if you’re not on the A-list. You lose no matter what!

At about this time our friend Gerald “Jerry”  Deluca gets himself elected to the RCS board of education promising to use his “political connections,” to get things done for the village and the schools…like we needed more “political connections”? Like your connections to saddle the community with a money pit swimming pool? No, thanks, Jerry! Keep your “connections” for all the good they’ve done residents and businesses in the district over the past 20 years!

Now, what you need to do is click on this link Can You Explain This, Jerry? to go to the discussion of Gerald “Jerry” Deluca and his “connections.”

After you’ve read that, you need to go to this link  This Is Your Town, Coeymans! Do you like it, and connect all the dots. Good Luck!

None of all of this is benefitting you, your children, your family, your business, your community. In fact, it’s very damaging. All of this is happening only for those whose agendas and pockets are benefitting. And when you connect the dots you’ll see how all of this reaches deep into the Albany County District Attorney’s Office, the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, the courts, and, if we are to believe Gerald “Jerry” Deluca’s published résumé, into the Department of Environmental Conservation (the DEC; does that explain some things in the town, business people?), the State Assembly, and beyond!

After all that don’t you just want to cough up?

Are you still wondering why nothing gets done in this community? Are you still wondering why we’re crying CORRUPTION? RETALIATION? COERCION?

Stay Tuned for Part II: Residents Complain…OUCH!

 All they have is STRAWMEN and straw! And don’t think for a minute that the Times Useless or any of the Scoundrels Feeding it the Sleeze and Smear Have this Community’s Interests at Heart; Hell No! They’re Feeling the Crunch of this Blog and their Only Possible Way Out is to Smear…And Do Something Cowards Do Best: Grasp at Straws!

We haven’t seen the Times Useless smear yet but we’ve heard about it. But we already published the same material several weeks ago; maybe the Times Useless can’t read. But Don’t Be Mistaken! They’re Not Dealing With Some Poor Bastid Who Can’t Fight Back or Won’t. If It’s War You Want…Bring It On! We’ve Got the Ammunition and the Troops! They’re on the RUN and like all rats, get real nasty when cornered!

But as the I Ching teaches, ‘always leave the enemy a retreat route.’ Here’s how: You Coeymanazis and members of the Deluca Losers Club can behave–and save– yourselves by finally acting like adult socialized and civilized human beings, something most of you in the opposition may not be very good at but if you give it a try, it just might work.

Ethics! What ethics?
The Teresi Legacy

In the meantime, we’ll be publishing the Geneology of Corruption that is the history of Ravena-Coeymans and stretches into the power centers of the Albany County administrations and even into the New York state court system, even the New York state Supreme Court. The players cover the entire alphabet from B-Biscone to W-Warner, and everything in between! 25 years of corruption and finagling and a New York State Supreme Court judge, who rose from village attorney to new heights while milking the locals for everything, and now his son is doing the same! We’ve acquired a stack of incriminating documents that we’ll soon be publishing: “Of Incest and Banjos!”

This Is Your Town, Coeymans! Criminals Gone Wild, Part II

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

 I Recently Started A Discussion in  a Chaplains Discussion Group on Forgiveness and Reconciliation, and I’ve Just Reviewed Some of the Discussion From the Participants. So, Forgive Me But I’m Waxing Pastoral, Theological, So-to-Speak.

Criminals Gone Wild, Part II

I’m Sitting Here at My Desk, Thinking About Coeymans, the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk District and Wondering: Does the Place Make the People Evil, Or Do the People Make the Place Evil?

Does the Place Make the People Evil, Or Do the People Make the Place Evil?” That’s the question that is preoccupying me this evening as I read through some legal papers and police reports relating to a recent incident in Coeymans. I also wondered while reading how a country that wants to make same-sex marriages legal and liberalize immigration laws can be so hateful towards its neighbors? There’s something schizoid about the whole thing; it’s really sicko!

It seems the television and local press media have been spoon fed some blood so they’re in a feeding frenzy this evening, as only the media can do, whole facts, half facts, they don’t give a damned. As long as they can beat the others to the punch!

But the question that still comes up, even after I ponder the question of: “Why are they going after the good citizen and not the crooked, corrupt cops? Why are they not going after the deranged, depraved drug addled Neanderthal who actually menaced a lone woman, vomiting profanity and threats to harm her entire family?”

But then that haunting question resurfaces: “Is it the Place that Makes the People Evil, or the People that Make the Place Evil?

On about Thursday, May 24, 2012, Mr Joseph E. TRACEY, the father of RCS board of education member Josephine O’Connor, entered a local business premises and launched into a tirade of obscenities, profanities and threats on the lone woman in the office, who happened to be a local busness woman and the sister of the sitting RCS board of education president. Here we have what is tantamount to Fat Bastard accosting Tinkerbell! That’s a real match, isn’t it?

Do You Recognize This Man?

Well, luckily, the lady’s brother (not John Vadney but another brother) was watching and called on her cell phone to ensure everything was all right and later physically appeared to make certain TRACEY was behaving (he was not); by that time, it appears, the lady had things under control, but TRACEY continued his attacks, now in the presence of not two but three witnesses!

The reason for TRACEY’s appearance was that the BoE president, Mr John Vadney,  allegedly called his daughter, Josephine O’Connor fat.” We reported on the incident on this blog and, it appears, the BoE president did no such thing and there are at least four, FOUR witnesses to testify to that fact. Nevertheless, TRACEY was convinced that someone called his adult married daughter, for quite a number of years estranged from TRACEY and not on friendly terms with him, “fat”  but now all of a sudden he’s being protective (?). Fact is, TRACEY was set up to be a tool and was being used to set up BoE president…something TRACEY doesn’t have the smarts to do alone, having allegedly fried his brain years ago, and only recently on legal prescription meds. Mr Joseph Edward Tracey was being used as a pawn in the depraved games his daughter and her depraved pervert friends are playing; get control of the RCS board of education and its authorities. It’s all about divvying up the $41 million they deceptively got voters to accept in the 2012-13 RCS CSD school budget. The Teachers association/union wants control of all that and without the majority on the Board of Education, they’ll never have full control. So, it’s obvious, with the help of Gerald “Jerry” Deluca on the Coeymans Police Department and his bully cops–Deluca is very good friends with Josephine O’Connor–they could make a frame-up look legit but only with a Dumbo, a fall guy. Enter Joseph Edward TRACEY. After all, TRACEY has a “reputation,” a big mouth, and a brain that makes a chicken’s look like Einstein’s, and is expendible. Right, Josephine?

TRACEY BEEN BAD!
TRACEY BEEN HAD!

So TRACEY makes his appearance, does his thing, and leaves promising to call the board president, which, as we see, he does on Friday, May 25, 2012. (It should be noted here for completeness that the woman initially accosted by TRACEY feared for her own safety and that of her family and attempted to file a complaint with Officer Thompson of the Coeymans Police, but Coeymans Officer Kerry Thompson, also a Lieutenant with the Albany County Sheriff and married to Darlington’s Sister refused to take the complaint!  Wonder why?)

On informatin and belief TRACEY called the president of the board at his home on Friday evening, May 25, 2012, and left a voicemail message at about 4:30 p.m.; Mr Vadney returned TRACEY’s call that evening at about 8:30 p.m.  TRACEY again alleged that Mr Vadney called his daughter “fat,” which Mr Vadney denied. TRACEY again  launched into a tirade of profanity and obscenities, threatening to harm Mr Vadney. Mr Vadney terminated the call and immediately reported the incident to the Bethlehem police. The Bethlehem police contacted TRACEY, located him at his home, arrested him, transported him to the station. The honorable Jordon, Bethlehem town justice, arraigned TRACEY on misdemeanor aggravated harassment, and ordered him to appear in court at a later date. Judge Jordon also issued an order of protection in favor of Mr Vadney, prohibiting Tracey from contacting Mr Vadney.

Were the Coeymans Police actually violating the Order of Protection issued by Judge Jordon? We think YES! They were actually acting after the Judge issued the Order of Protection and on the express behalf of Joe TRACEY to continue TRACEY’s intimidation and threats when Joe TRACEY was prohibited from contacting Mr Vadney! Joe TRACEY was arrested and arrested for good cause; he couldn’t accept that and made good his threats against Mr Vadney, this time with the help of the Coeymanazis, the Coeymans Police, who ignored the Judge’s order and continued to harass and intimidate Mr Vadney, even sham arresting him! Of course the general public and the media missed the finer points of this criminal activity but you now know! Fancy that! The Coeymans Police doing something illegal…AGAIN!

Apparently, after TRACEY’s arrest, TRACEY filed a complaint with Coeymans police alleging that Mr Vadney threatend TRACEY with bodily harm, and that he stated “I know where you live” and “You’d better watch out.” TRACEY states that he was “alarmed” by these threats. Our question, naturally is: TRACEY, if you were so alarmed by these alleged words, Why didn’t you report them immediately or when you were arrested? There’s no mention of that in the police reports. Why did you wait til the next day, after you had been arrested and an order of protection issued against you?

Well, at about 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 26, 2012, the Coeymans police arrive at the home of sitting RCS board of education president, John Vadney, and arrest him on the charge of Guess what? Aggravated harrassment.

Now, who’s our little sock-puppet, Officer Crosier?

But reading the Coeymans police report, we note that it is not Joseph Edward TRACEY who is complainant, but Officer D.M. Crosier shield No. 128, of the Coeymans Police Department. Our first impression is that this Crosier character is either ignorant or totally incompetent ,or more probably still, just a sockpuppet following orders. (S)he was not present when the alleged threats were made, was (s)he? Neither is the complaint/report signed by TRACEY. Nor is there a jurat or sworn deposition by TRACEY in support of the complaint–at least not in the report we have. Mr Vadney was not mirandized upon his arrest and he was not arraigned before a judge at the time of being charged. All of these irregularities–did we expect different in Coeymans–are glaring in terms of law enforcement! What does this spell out for us:

RETALIATION! PERJURY! CONSPIRACY! SET-UP! DUH! NO-BRAINER, PEOPLE!

This entire series of events perfectly illustrates what we have been reporting and saying all along! The players are all the same:  The Coeymans Police Department (representing Gerald “Jerry” Deluca and the Coeymanazis), Josephine O’Connor and dear ole demented Dad  (representing the teachers union members on the RCS board of education), and the residents and people of the RCS community and central school district (represented by Mr John Vadney).

As for the circumstances at large in the RCS community and in the schools in the RCS central school district, all you have to do is page through this blog to get a good idea of what that’s all about. I won’t waste space here repeating it all.

When interpreting the facts, we look at the events, the circumstances, the individuals involved. Here we have the image of Josephine O’Connor, an adult married woman, calling herself inaccurately a teacher (making her a liar), alleging that the president of the RCS board of education called her “fat,” and, in the presence of voters waiting to hear the results of the presumably  fraudulent budget vote, in her own words published on FaceBook, Josephine O’Connor writes:

“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.” (See our article: Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!)

And then, not to let the matter rest, and to use it to the max for her depraved and lunatic purposes, she enlists her burnt-out father as her Dumbo! and sets out with the collusion of the Coeymans Police (Deluca, her “good friend”) to frame Mr Vadney! This woman claims to be a teacher; is that the sort of person you want in your school?

Our advice: Get over it Josephine! Get some counseling, some therapy! But stay away from the children!!!! You’re really BAD news!

Then we have that poor bastid Joseph Edward TRACEY, who fathered our lunatic wannabe teacher, Josephine O’Connor, who on information and belief has quite a history of his own, which explains much of his behavior, and who, for whatever reason, gets sucked into this undercurrent by his newly re-found Josephine–and gets his ass arrested for his idiotic behavior and then, stupidly, perjurs himself in retaliation!

As for the corrupt and tainted thugs at the Coeymans Police Department, they are beyond any criticism we could unleash on them here. They are thugs, bullies, Coeymanazis; what can you expect with the leaders they have and the types of recruits they bring in: rejects. Unfortunately, the good apples in the barrel have to carry the stench of their rotten colleagues. 

Mr John Vadney
Gold Star Rated

As for Mr Vadney: He was elected on his merits. He’s a hard-working family man, he and his wife have two beautiful children and have provided wonderfully for them. His children are smart, talented, respectful, handsome. He is honest, honorable, and respectful. Godfearing, moral, ethical  and good. Having observed him many times in the videotapes of the RCS board of education meetings, he is always professional, cheerful, and respectful. Mr Vadney and his family are hospitable and generous; their home and table are open to all. It’s a family tradition.  Mr Vadney is a good listener and mediator; he treats everyone with respect. Mr Vadney has worked long and hard for the RCS central school district and has made many personal sacrifices for the sake of the district, its students and residents. It’s an abomnation what the sicko’s in this community have done to them! There’s a special p;lace in hell for those asocial perverts and they’ll reap the rewards of their evildoings none to soon! A curse be upon them and those who support them! Amen!  The man described by the LIARS Joseph Edward TRACEY and his estranged, strange adult daughter, Josephine O’CONNOR is a fiction, a fabrication of their sick minds. Those who know Mr Vadney and work with him can confirm the observation that he is good, honorable, and a victim of the perverts; you can judge for yourself: Watch the tapes, they’re available on the RCS board of education website.

One final word on the media: This blog, to its credit, deals in facts. We could have commented on these events sooner but we waited until we had all of the reports and could quote facts. Unfortunately, that is not the case for Channel 6 News and Channel 10 News; they hadn’t even seen the police reports and were hounding Mr Vadney and his neighbors. Channel 6 News and Channel 10 News had the opportunity to establish credibility but BLEW IT! Their editors have to answer for that; hopefully their shareholders and their advertisers will take those faux pas and the ignorance in consideration. Don’t be mistaken, we’ll make sure they know about it! Sorry stupids…you made your beds, now sleeep in them!

Is this Dayelin Roman?

Of course, the Times Useless and the sleeze reporter Dayelin Roman were on the phone trying to scrape up some of the pooled blood before it could even clot! Dayelin Roman, star pornographic reporter! Makes you wonder who’s doing what for her, she’s so hot on destroying the decent people in Coeymans and ignores the crooks and criminals! What’s up, Day’, you and Jerry gettin’ kinda “close?”  Who’s leaking information to you from  Coeymans (that’s an old problem, common knowledge that someone in the Coeymans P.D. leaks information)? Or do you suck up anything put in front of you?

But credit where credit is due: At least Channel 13, I’m told, was reasonably balanced in its reporting and at least gave both sides of the story. Earlier today, WNYT Channel 13 spent more than 51 minutes on this blog. Eric Hoppel was notified of the problems in Coeymans some time ago. Do you think WNYT or Hoppel will get to the bottom of the real problems in Coeymans, like Deluca and the Coeymanazis? Time will tell.

People of Ravena, Coeymans, Selkirk! How can you have the stomach to let this go on any longer?

Enough said on that subject. The Law and Justice will have the last word! But that question is still bothering me:

“Is it the Place that Makes the People Evil, or Is it the People that Make the Place Evil?

The Editor

A Couple of Afterthoughts…

“It’s for the kids!”

Remember that slogan abused by the Yes! people during the budget battle. Wielded so many times by teachers and teacher minions to tug at your heart strings and to get you to give them their money?  Well, apparently Josephine O’Connor and Joe TRACEY “did it all for the kids.” Was it for the kids that Mr Vadney’s children had to hear Joe TRACEY’s filth coming over the speaker phone? Was it for the kids that Mr Vadney’s children had to witness their innocent father arrested and carted off like the Coemanazi criminals instigating the fraud? Was it for the kids that they now have to face their schoolmates and bear the stigma of what Josephine O’Connor, Joe TRACEY, and the Coeymanazis conjured up? Yeah! It’s for the the kids…and I just saw a pig (I won’t mention any names) fly by my window!We can only speculate why this evil has been done…

But here are some ideas:

  • The Coeymanazis are lashing out wildly at anything or anyone that is associated, in reality or only in their small minds, with this blog. They think they know who the blogger is and will do anything to “punish” her/him or anyone associated with him/her. They seem to see her/him everywhere (see our article Matt Miller: “I Seen The BLOGGER!!!!” — his grammar, not ours!). And have even used the school children to do their dirty work (see Schools, Superintendent:  No Response to Allegations of Bullying… and Stop the Presses…EXTRA! Bully Gangs at RCS).
  • The word is that some members of the RCS board of education were going to vote to deny RCS teachers association/union president Matt Miller (the self-professed atheist teacher) the $10K he’s receiving on top of his teacher salary (he has a reduced teaching load of 2 periods a day so that he can do his union finagling at the school, and then they pay him an additional stipend of $10K to act as energy watchdog at the school!). Is it worth $10K to frame an innocent person? You betcha it is in Coeymans. The solution: Do anything to prevent the vote! Create a distraction…ANYTHING!
  • It could be revenge for the fact that so many residents in the RCS central school district saw and reported numerous irregularities leading up to and in the May 15 budget voting and the election of board of education members. Revenge for the fact that the teacher’s lost their majority on the board so some non-supporters had to go! They had already tried before and failed. It looks like they really go desperate.
  • And then there’s Josephine O’Connor. She appears to have anger and self-esteem issues that probably go way back in her personal history. A lot of trauma there. Maybe it was one of the many voices in her head that called her fat and she tried to pin reality on it by lashing out at someone in the crowd, maybe a father figure? Maybe the father figure represented in the president of the RCS board of education? It really makes no difference which voice it was she heard. What does matter is that she’s held on to the thought for so long and has actually kept the rage in her until she could vent it. Now that in itself is nutz! Josephine O’Connor has some serious psychological issues, it seems, and she’s not someone I’d want around my kids…in school or anywhere!

 Well, those are the facts; obviously nothing seems to change in the Coeymans freak show.

This Is Your Town, Coeymans! Do you like it?

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

Sometimes You Just Need To Sit Down and Write Things Out to Get a Real Feel for What’s Going On Around You. We Did And Here’s What We Came Up With…

Coeymans at Work

For about two months now we’ve been reporting on what’s going on right under your noses. It’s all stuff that you are not hearing about in the newspapers, the News Herald, the Daily Mail, the Times Union, who should be reporting and investigating this scandalous situation. We’ve encouraged you to complain, to fight back, to call the New York State Education Department, the FBI, the County Sheriff, and others. To stand up, speak out, fight back, take back your town, and peace of mind. Well, here are some thoughts and facts for you to chew on and to think about:

FACTS AND NOTES

See our accompanying letter,  An Open Letter to the Albany County Sheriff and the Albany County DA.

  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca is employed by the Town of Coeymans in the Coeymans Police Department
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca works very intimately with Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department)
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca involved with Yes! side in budget debates (see our article, Secret Meetings on Budget at Public School?)
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca involved with teachers side on BoE
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca has conspicuous influence with Coeymans Police Department and with its members
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca is a former member of the RCS board of education and served as president for a time. After the scandal of his adulterous affair with his now partner Cathy (Long) Deluca, he was not re-elected and his partner, Cathy (Long) Deluca, lost her bid for relection. The Deluca legacy to the RCS central school district was the money-pit swimming pool (which was slipped in on the residents in the budget after failing to pass several times; a Deluca sneak job).
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca and the other loser candidates (most of his public following is made up of people who ran for office but lost) making up his entourage has been on a merciless campaign of misinformation and abuse of the present non-teacher supporters on the RCS board of education. Delucal heads the so-called Coemanazis [the Losers Club].
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca is a so-called police investigator and investigates local requests for law enforcement assistance (which raises many questions, considering he receives a check from the State of New York, and has quite a number of other jobs, some raising questions of conflict of interest and worse. See below for more details. And see our article on this blog,  Can You Explain This, Jerry?) There is apparently considerable evidence for Deluca’s involvement in criminal retaliation and coercion. (The Albany County Sheriff’s Department finall got involved and kicked some Coeymans ass; the investigation is now underway. Lost again, Jerry!)
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca directly involved in retaliation and coercion, but has not yet been charged!
  • Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department) apparently works for Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, which may explain why the rogue Jerry Deluca and his accomplices has free hand in Coeymans.
  • Gregory Darlington, before he was hired to the Coeymans Police Department, was a garbage collector! He’s still collecting garbage and putting it in police uniforms. Most of the derelicts and refuse that was thrown off the Coeymans P.D. by former chief Scott Giroux, including on information and belief, Gerald “Jerry” Deluca and others, were hired back by Darlington!
  • Ryan Johnson, another rogue at the Coeymans Police Department, was previously in the military and deployed to the Mid East. He never adapted to civilian law enforcement and still thinks he’s in the military. Heavy handed, abusive. But on information and belief he was charged at least 4 times for perjury. Has this man ever undergone psychological evaluation for fitness to be in law enforcement, we wonder? Could he have been adversely affected by his military experiences?
  • Officer Kerry Thompson of the Coeymans Police Department is married to Darlington’s sister; this is the same Officer Thompson who, in retaliation, refused to take a woman’s harassment complaint against Joseph Edward Tracey, father of Deluca’s close friend and board of education member, Josephine O’Connor! Thompson is also with the Albany County Sheriff’s Department. Cozy, eh?
  • Gregory Teresi, a lawyer who is serving as both Village of Ravena and Town of Coeymans attorney, is the son of the notoriously infamous Joseph Teresi (NYS Supreme Court, Albany County). Read more about good ol’ dad’s escapades at Teresi: Part I. Fear the worst: Like father, like son! A dynasty of corruption!
  • The Coeymans town justice, George Dardiani, violated just about every section of the New York State Rules of Judicial Conduct, and broadcasted his bias and prejudice by publically displaying his political support for the Yes! side in the 2012-13 budget battle by displaying a Vote Yes! (ít’s for the kids) sign on his front lawn!  A complaint has been filed.
  • Between the activities of Gerald “Jerry” Deluca and Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department) in the budget controversy and the attempts to remove board of education members tainted and compromised Coeymans Police Department, and the public announcement of bias and prejudice by a judge on the Coeymans town court (George Dardiani), there cannot be any reasonable expectation whatsoever of justice in the town of Coeymans (no convicting any No! sign vandals or anyone involved in criminal activity against anyone openly opposing the budget or the teachers union can continue their criminal activities in Coeymans with no fear of apprehension!)
  • Because of the collaboration and conspiracy between members of the Coeymans Police Department and the Ravena village and Coeymans town court, and the seeding of the Coeymans Police Department with known criminals and delinquents (McKenna, Johnson) protecting them on the Coeymans Police Department who, because of the favors and protection and support they are receiving from key members in the Coeymans Police Department, and the support received from the Ravena village and Coeymans town court, are key instruments in the campaign of retaliation and coercion by the Coeymans Police Department and abetted by the Ravena village and the Coeymans town court. (See our article on this blog, Corrupt Coeymans Police Effectiveness Compromised!!!)
  • The Coeymans Town Court with it’s tainted and corrupt justice George Dardiani (former cafeteria manager, completely ga-ga about the Rules of Judicial Conduct), and the tainted and corrupt Ravena village court with its jugdge Harold Warner (ex-cop, still-cop-at-heart so-called judge, TAINTED & COMPROMISED); Crandell, a Town of Coeymans town justice is still under scrutiny and had better behave for now, unless something comes up to show he’s in bed with the rest! (In fact, George Dardiani did not recuse himself from the Krzykowski actions, despite the fact that Dardiani was in bed with Deluca and Co. The fact that Dardiani issued a bench arrest warrant for a local resident but the resident was never served with the summons in the first place! (Despite repeated requests by the resident, the Coeymans court was unable to come up with the original summons! Isn’t that odd?) Odd that this should be a controversial board of education member and a local businessperson, who was cited by the DEC! That is “odd,” isn’t it, Jerry? You want to tell us something, Jerry?)
  • Deluca is closely involved with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the DEC, activities and has been working with them (How? He has no background in environment! He’s supposed to be working as a police investigator since about 1982!) and lists himself as “executive director” of a special interest automotive scrap organization called ARANYAutomotive Recyclers of New York–(Now, how did he qualify for that one?). He’s also running Deluca Public Affairs (no not his usual affairs) and an entity called the Main Street Small Business Corporation. Do you wonder why local business people are experiencing so many problems with the DEC, and why local scrapyard operators and others are having problems with the DEC? Shouldn’t we ask Gerald “Jerry” Deluca about his relationships with the DEC and ARANY why there are so many problems? (O.K., Jerry, we’re asking now!) (See our article on this blog, Can You Explain This, Jerry?)
  • Complaints about Coeymans Police Department likely to be handled by AlbanyCountyD.A. David Soares’ office…but Darlington’s wife works there…Gregory Darlington’s wife works forAlbany County D.A. as secretary to Soares!
  • If that isn’t enough for you try this on for size: Coeymans town justice Harold Warner’s daughter also works in Soares’ office! Remember Hal Warner, the ex-cop playing at town justice–and if you think teachers stick together like shite to a show, you don’t don’t know how tight cops are…or how close they are to the DA’s office! Does it get any more incestuous?!?
  • Albany County D.A. David Soares’ office is compromised and tainted by conflict of interest between the best interests of the public and gatekeeper Mrs Darlington; what does that mean when disciplining Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, Gregory Darlington, and the Coeymans P.D.
  • Investigations of criminal activity in Coeymans by Coeymans Police Department compromised by the fact of political involvements of Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department) (e.g. harassment and intimidation of local business owners, harassment and intimidations of board of education members and their families, retaliation and coercion, non-investigation of sign vandalism to No! vote signs)
  • Investigations of criminal activity in Coeymans by Coeymans Police Department compromised by the fact of Gerald “Jerry” Deluca’s involvement with teachers and support of Yes! group…(e.g. arrest of BoE president connected with father of BoE member falsely claiming an abusive phone call; Coeymans police “chief” Darlington can’t seem to get the incident report together. Imagine that!)
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca’s and Coeyman’s P.D. involvement in retaliation against BoE members and others to coerce silence or collaboration (e.g. violation of the provisions of the Americans With Disabilities Act-ADA,  arrest of BoE president; various delaying tactics in police investigations; harassment and intimidation of residents (numerous complaints of police misconduct; we have at least four (4) formal complaints in our possession!))
  • Questionable integrity of Coeymans Police Department members (e.g. Johnson, Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department), Laviano, and others). Are they faithfully and impartially serving and protecting YOU?
  • Attempts by Gerald “Jerry” and Cathy (Long) Deluca, David and Amy Bartlett, Donna Leput Hommel, Josephine O’connor, James Latter, and others to unsuccessfully remove RCS board of education members leads to secret meetings and attempts to “discipline or remove” board members. (Search our blog for articles on any of these perps and read about their mischiefmaking!) (See our articles on this blog, Can You Explain This, Jerry?, James Latter: Why Is He Still On the Board of Education?, We Asked…You Responded: Thank You!, Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!)
  • Loss of majority of teachers’ supporters on RCS CSD board of education continues with heightened clear and palpable increase in clandestine retaliation and coercion methods to achieve same purpose of removing non-teacher supporters from the RCS board of education by other methods: conspiracy and retaliation (the most conspicuous and underhanded conspiracy was to use Joe TRACEY (father of board of education member Josephine O’Connor) to falsely accuse the BoE president of misconduct, resulting in the BoE president’s arrest, and then the retaliatory tactics of the Coeymans Police Department in refusing to promptly provide a copy of the police report on the arrest)
  • The Coeymans Police Department is clearly conspiring with certain elements of the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk district, including certain members of the current board of education, unsuccessful bidders for seats on the board of education, elements supporting certain controversial and political agendas in the district, most notably the 2012-13 RCS school budget in support of certain special interest groups, notably the teachers association, and teacher-related members of the BoE
  • The Coeymans Police Department is retaliating against family members of the feared blogger in the idiotic hope that reports such as this one will stop and the blogger will disappear (Sorry, Jerry, it’s not going to happen!)
  • And not the least of the corrupt and unlawful practices in the RCS district, do we really have to remind any of you of the gross and scandalous irregularities in the recent voting? If we do, please visit our article More Irregularities in the Voting? The RCS Central School District was served with papers on May 29th demaning an investigation; we’re waiting to see where the NYSED is going to go with all of this!

Time to Start Writing–Right NOW!

So, now that you have some facts to fill in any blanks, don’t you think it’s time to start using the Complaints Contact Sheet we provided (you can view or download the sheef from the blog article, Retaliation Is A CRIME! Let’s Go After the Criminals!)? Start sending letters, e-mails, complaint forms, demands to everyone and anyone on or off the list! Get those criminal bastids out of government, investicated, in jail where they belong. They’re crooks and criminals and shouldn’t be in your back yard. (Don’t bother calling the local Coeymans police, though, they’re the criminals!)

It’s time to do YOUR part in cleaning up RCS!
