Where have all the “neighbors” gone? Ghouls got’em!

After the recent elections we have had to take some time to think about what’s going on in our local communities and how they’ve changed because people have become so uncivil, angry, simplistic in their thinking, and uninterested in their communities. What’s happened as a result of general distrust of government and politicians, the media taking over our minds and wallets, the flood of propaganda we drown in every day, the loss of parents and children, is that those of us who are still in La-La-Land thinking that things can get better if we just wait and do nothing, generally get abused by the vile ghouls around us. It’s Cryptkeeper politics that we all have experienced and still do experience as illustrated by this report:

Ghouls Sighted in New Baltimore at Ghouls Gulch*,

a.k.a. 36 Madison Avenue East!

Cryptkeeper Nation a.k.a. The Rosses at Work

Cryptkeeper Nation
a.k.a. The “Rosses” at Work

Some People Just Don’t Give it A Rest

The National Historic District (NHD) in the town of New Baltimore, a sleepy hamlet on the Hudson River in New York, is composed of about 25 houses, many of them empty now, a few of them haunted by carpetbagger ghouls. These ghouls come from outside this historic community and bring with them their liberal [please note the pun] nastiness and sneers.


“Dear Editor:

“About 12 or so years ago an Albany pair sold their Albany property and bought a house in the NHD, and thus began the venomization of New Baltimore. Joan and Robert Ross moved into the NHD and proceeded to set themselves up as the newest pseudosophisticates, christening the locals, according to Joan Ross, as Newbaltimorons. If that was bad, it only got worse.

[Editor’s Note: “Joan Ross” is a very, very common name and if you Google it you’ll get numerous obitiuaries for Joan Ross. Pay no attention. She’s not dead. Nor is she the renowned author, Joan Ross. New Baltimore’s Joan Ross is neither gifted nor talented. Bottom line: Joan Ross of New Baltimore, whose apparent only claim to fame is her misconduct, is a rather insignificant bug even on Google.]

Bob and Joan Unmasked

Bob and Joan Unmasked

“During the years that followed Joan and “RobbieRoss got involved in campaigning against the plan to bring municipal water to the hamlet of New Baltimore, a community plagues with water problems for generations. But Joan and Robbie knew better than the Newbaltimorons because they were better than the Newbaltimorons. But some Newbaltimorons were not so smart and took the Ross’s bait. So Joan and Robbie gathered a small group around them and started a vile campaign of ambush, slander, libel, and dysinformation — all under cover of darkness and by e-mails, cowards that they are — aimed at keeping water out of Newbaltimore. Their arguments were based on Joan’s bizarre logic of find it, cut-and-paste it, mail it. Joan and Robbie incited what we fondly call the Water War and their efforts destroyed a generations-old community, turning neighbor against neighbor, even family members against family. That didn’t matter much to Joan and Robbie, since they had no idea of what community or family was, they were too busy making certain that the fabric on their chairs was just right, or that the paint on the kitchen cabinets was just the right hue. You know, the really important issues of concern to pseudosophisticates. There’s example of Joan’s self-invention as a connoisseur (someone knowlegeable) of American architecture — which she’s certainly not — and her indirect reference to the property at 36 Madison Avenue East, Ghouls Gulch. Such phoney-sophisticate arrogance! (See Times Union Photos-Capital Region architecture)

“Not only that, the Rosses and a gaggle of minions filed a lawsuit against the town of New Baltimore and lost pitifully!

“How they got that way is no big mystery. Joan Ross, allegedly having had an abused childhood and a thing about her mother, wanted to be accepted for more than she actually was or is, and loathed her background — thinking that her expressions of “taste” would hide what she really is —, and her “character” (read on to learn more about this); “RobbieRoss came from employment with New York State and, as happens to so many mid-level state employees, became a stuffed shirt concerned only with how much he could cash in at retirement (he now gets more than $46,000 a year of taxpayer dollars to finance Joan’s mischief). Instead of a carefree, peaceful retirement he got to be put in solitary confinement with Joan, a fate worse than the undead.

“So they did their damage and had everyone at their neighbor’s throats over a vital issue that the Rosses and their ilk thought was unnecessary. The atmosphere in the town and hamlet got so toxic that people just wanted it to go away, no matter what the cost of preparations and studies, or the need, and so it did. New Baltimore hamlet continues to live with regular water crises.

“During the Water Wars, Joan and “Robbie” Ross, bored as they are, not only fractured the community, they were involved in any number of immoral activities far beyond simply creating havoc and mahem; they marked certain neighbors for future harassment and vilification. That’s the story here.

“The Rosses live at the end of a very long driveway, like ghouls in a hidden lair. They’ve posted a “Private Driveway” sign at the end of their doomsday drive to signal that you’re not welcome (not that you’d see many visitors to Ghouls Gulch anyway). They emerge from time to time and spread some poison, only to return later to their lair to plot and plan. “Ghouls Gulch” as it were.

Welcome to Ghouls Gulch

Welcome to Ghouls Gulch

“The Rosses have had numerous visits from the NY State Police and the Greene County Sheriff’s Department for everything ranging from reckless driving to harassment to using their car as a weapon. Joan has fired off emails that could have gotten her arrested were it not for the benevolence of her victims. Joan has left telephone threats that could have gotten her jailed if it were not for the benevolence of her victims (or the fact that they think she’s just plain crazy). In fact, at her deposition in one court case, Joan Ross had to take the Fifth Amendment at her attorney’s insistence in order to avoid possible additional prosecution for her threats.

Robbie” has been in court for attempting to run down a neighbor with his car and has been in court on charges of aggravated harassment. He was placed on “probation” and had to behave so that the charges would go away A.C.O.D., or face prosecution. That didn’t last long; he still uses his car to make statements that bring the police to his door. (So, if you see a silver jeep careening in zigzags towards you, Take cover! It might be Bob Ross telling you he doesn’t like your face!)

“What Bob Ross is doing even driving these days is a mystery to anyone who sees him zigzagging down the street. Ross has what appears to be a degenerative neurological disorder that causes him to twitch and walk unsteadily; he’s an old geezer, too, must be in his late 70s, so that may be a factor in his bizarre behavior. (It’s characters like Bob Ross and his erratic driving that would support having persons diagnosed with neurological disorders and the like to be tested regularly for fitness to operate a motor vehicle before continuing their driving privileges. Now his problem is public knowledge. Now when something awful happens there won’t be any excuses!)

spook“Ross tends to drive down New Baltimore streets shooting up his middle finger to residents he doesn’t approve of. In fact, one resident reports that every time Bob Ross drives by, he’s got his middle finger in the window. The neighbor recently had to call New Baltimore postmaster Mr Heath to the window as a witness to Ross’s stupid behavior in the post office, trying to push the resident out of his way. [Apparently Bitter Bob’s judgment is so far gone that he doesn’t realize the resident could break his skeletal ghoul-body in two if he had a mind to!] The resident was taking no chances with Ross and wanted the postmaster as a witness to Ross’ deviant behavior.

“Bob Ross has been dubbed “Bitter Bob” by his neighbors or the “Cryptkeeper” perhaps because of how he and Joan stay in their crypt and emerge from time to time like ghouls to get blood and flesh, and then to return sated to their lair. Or it may be because he has an uncanny resemblance to the “Cryptkeeper” of Tales from the Crypt. Check out the images below.

“While Bob Ross may be dangerous on the streets, Joan Ross is much sneakier and tends to be even more cowardly than old bitter Bob Ross, if that’s possible.

Witch1
“You see, most of Joan Ross‘ craziness is done by e-mail or Internet; she likes to do things “anonymously.” She’s even gotten a nickname for herself, “Cut-and-Paste” Joan“, from her favorite method of distorting facts by cutting-and-pasting and then e-mailing her vile product to unwary minions.

“Joan Ross apparently knows she’s vile and that she’s got a problem: she actually confessed her problem to a neighbor in an e-mail that’s been around to haunt her ever since. That and recordings of her telephone threats, threats that could have been used to have her arrested for misdemeanor harassment!

kitty yer a loser“But, thanks to the kindness of their neighbors, the Rosses have had to appear in court only twice for their criminal activities. But they haven’t learned a thing. Since those court appearances they’ve gotten even bolder, more vile, and more sneaky. Here’s one example that’s going to backfire badly on Joan, at least, but only if Bob Ross can convince authorities he knew nothing about Joan’s misuse of the US Postal Service and her unlawful harassment. She apparently thought she was real smart sending out smear packages about a local resident but she wasn’t so smart after all. Even though she tried to cover her trail by mailing the junk from Albany, she left some telltale clues. There’s indisputable evidence that the smear packages were sent by Joan Ross; this time it’s the Feds who will have to investigate. (What old Cut-and-Paste Joan doesn’t seem to get is that the individual she’s trying to smear is well-liked and respected by the very people to whom Ms Ross is stupidly addressing her vile crap; they’re throwing her in, the stupid sow, and passing her ghoul-mail on to the resident unread!)

“These people don’t understand good sense, and rather than risk a confrontation or, worse still, an incident incited by these two characters, I hope that by making their behavior public they’ll be embarrassed enough to start behaving like civilized people. I can only hope.

“— A Harassed NB Resident”


crypt_keeper_bitter bobEditor’s Comment: If, as the writer reports, Mr Ross’ neurological pathology is affecting his movements and walking and his driving ability, and if Mr Ross’ judgment is so impaired that he imprudently attempts to start an incident with someone who could, if Ross pushes hard enough, do some serious damage, could “Bitter Bob’s” judgement be impaired to such an extent, either by his pathology or his relationship with “Cut-and-Paste” Joan, that he could be a risk to himself and others? It would seem to us that when individuals start losing their sense of propriety and social control that they can pose serious risks to themselves and to others, physical and otherwise, unless they are controlled either by medicines or by the authorities. It sounds like Mr Ross is going over the edge. So where is local law enforcement on this issue? Apparently if the Sheriff’s department and the NYS Police have visited the Rosses several times already, the impression made is that they are ignoring law enforcement’s warnings, and begging for an arrest.

But why would a grown man, an old man, do such silly things like flick a neighbor the bird when driving by? Isn’t that just beyond silly? Is he trying to say, “Look at me I’m losing my mind?” Maybe “Bitter Bob” would be better off keeping both hands on the steering wheel. Maybe his driving would improve. Just a suggestion, Bob.

We have also received information that both “Cut-and-Paste” Joan and “Bitter Bob” of “Ghouls Gulch” are vegans — that’s an extreme form of vegetarianism in which no animal products whatsoever are used, including leather and other animal products. There are scientific studies that report that vegans don’t live as long as omnivores. Wouldn’t it be reasonable, too, that vegans lack certain nutrients that may be required for proper brain function? Could the Rosses’ bizarre behavior be traced back to their vegan diet? Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

Perhaps it’s a question of self-loathing. When you can’t loathe yourself and live, you start to look outside of yourself for things to hate. When you’re empty inside, you start grabbing for things outside of yourself, in a pitiful attempt to fill your emptiness. Isn’t that true? Perhaps the examples of “Cut-and-Paste” Joan and “Bitter Bob” illustrate this theory. Maybe they, like many others, are so unhappy, so self-loathing that they have to look for something outside of themselves to hate. Some people are so far gone they hate everything and everyone. Their hate isolates them and their lonliness grows. It’s a vicious circle!

Maybe they, like so many others, are so empty inside that they try to fill their lives with false selves, things, to make up for their ’emptiness.” After a while it starts to show in their faces, doesn’t it? Whatever the situation, they lead lives that are meaning-less, they live in a spiritual vacuum, devoid of value and truth; they start to wither away like fading spirits at dawn.

We are publishing this report because we know that the recordings and documents exist proving the truth of the above statements.


But if you think the above report is too scary to be true, let us reassure you: We have documents to prove everything we say above is true. We wouldn’t report it if we didn’t know we could support it.

But if you look around your own local neighborhood, your community, you’ll find that our “Rosses” are just stereotypes of the kind of characters you’ll find in your own neighborhood, even in our town halls. Like most sentient organisms, most people try to steer clear of unpleasantness and avoid trouble but that’s just what gives these ghouls the energy they work off of. By not putting them in their place, prosecuting them, we give them permission to be what they are: menaces to our communities.

That’s why it’s so bizarre when, as in New Baltimore, again, and as we reported here in our article
BARKING DOG NUISSANCE: New Balimore Nat’l Historic District, a known antisocial is allowed to make local residents’ lives miserable by using his dog to punish his neighbors! This happens, of course, when you have public officials in town hall who don’t have the balls to enforce their own laws. That’s when bad things happen. Or you bother the Sheriff’s people or the New York State Police, and waste their time being babysitters for stupid adults. Now is that right?

Son of Ross The Hound of Ghouls Gulch

Son of Ross
The Hound of Ghouls Gulch

The basic message of this article, dear readers, is that we all have bad, very bad people in our communities. If we don’t stand up and say, “Enough is enough! You’re outa here!” then we deserve what we get. Naturally, not everyone is going to have the dignity and the courage to stand up publicly and tell the world about these ghouls, who very often do their dirty work behind the scenes, cowards that they are, there are some of us who want to work to make our communities better places to live. Why don’t you stand up and support us?

Ghouls wearing Jim Youmans, Tom Dolan and Phil Crandall costumes also sighted lurking around van Buren Avenue in Ravena and Coeymans town hall!

Recent elections in Coeymans have given the ghouls the upper hand. How that happened is going to take time to prove if it ever is proved but it seems that a lot of voters in Coeymans have chosen the ghouls and given them the green light to suck the community’s remaining life out of it. More disappointment, more propaganda, more suffering, more apathy. Just what we need. Then the Cryptkeeper and Cut-and-Paste have free run of the community taking their evil toll on the rest of us. Who is to blame, we have to ask? Can we blame a rat for being a rat? A snake for being a snake? Of course not! That’s what they are. That’s their nature! But we don’t want to have them in our faces. Do we have to put up with the stereotypes? Of course not! They are stereotypes because we allow them to be stereotypes. (Read our article about stereotypes at Blacks and Wimins Can’t Drive; Black Wimins Can’t Park. ) If we make them accountable, responsible for their unacceptable behavior they become individuals, cases. They become the criminals they are and as such they can be brought to justice. It’s up to the rest of us to take the rudder and ram the ship of fools!

We’d like to close with a very special poem for Joan Ross:

THE WITCH’S COMPUTER

Since thou look’st at me askance
And leads thy Witch a merry dance
I’ll now prepare an incantation,
Suited to this situation.
May thy keyboard jam and stick!
May thy mouse refuse to click!
May thy cursor be accursed
May thy arrows be reversed!
May thy screen be smeared with goo
May thy pictures be askew!
May thy microphone fall dumb!
May thy thingammyjig succumb!
Then….. when I see the state thou’rt in,
I shall cast thee in the bin!

(Special thanks to Rinkly Rimes for this very appropriate rhyme.)

Return of the Scumbuckets! Coeymans Does It Again!

Coeymans Voters Showed that They Are Either Brain Dead or Slobbering Suckers

Copy this link and send it to your friends, relatives, neighbors, e-mail contacts. Place it on your FaceBook page. Copy this link: http://wp.me/p2jPFe-2×0

But How Can So Many People Be Crying About the Election Results if They Didn’t Vote for the Crooks? Something isn’t right in Coeymans!

The trash bags are back! Dithering Tom Dolan, a farce of a boardmember, caused a stir a couple of years ago when he was the subject of a scandal revolving around his tampering with absentee ballots from individuals receiving benefits from his Choices program in Ravena. Tom Dolan has been the subject of several scandals since then. Most recently he leaked a confidential Comptroller’s draft that his crony scoundrel Jim Youmans played to the hilt.

How quickly the residents and voters of the town of Coeymans forget that both Jim Youmans and Rick Touchette had been in public office but were dumped by Coeymans voters just about 2 years ago. They weren’t worth re-election then so what’s changed since? Only that they were involved in more scandals and unlawful conduct; is that what gets a democrap elected in Coeymans?

Well, the only thing that has changed is that they added another scandal to their list: Dolan, Touchette and Phil Crandall were all involved in the ticket fixing scam that forced Phil Crandall to resign from elected office in disgrace, never again to run for judicial office. All of them, Dolan, Touchette and Crandall were tight together and involved in getting and giving illegal favors that forced Crandall to resign from the judgeship! But you voted Tom Dolan and Rick Touchette back into office.  Even worse still, you put bully Jim Youmans back where you didn’t want him a couple of years ago! How can you do that, Coeymans?

Didn’t you read our factsheets on the candidates? Read them now and weep, stupids! Click here: What You Need to Know Before Voting on November 3rd.

Coeymans Voters Pumped Raw Sewerage into Town Hall! Dolan, Youmans, Touchette

On November 3rd Coeymans Voters Pumped Raw Sewerage into Town Hall!
Dolan, Youmans, Touchette

On November 3rd Coeymans Voters Pumped Raw Sewerage into Town Hall!

So what do Coeymans voters, morons that they are, do? They re-elect scoundrels to represent them and to govern the town of Coeymans. So what’s the plan here, people? You’re bitching that the town is going to the dogs. You make some progress in forcing two dirty cops, Dirty Hands Jerry Deluca and his dumpling Gregory Darlington into retirement. The police department is shining now, a real part of the community, saving money and working with the community. The town of Coeymans is in the black with the 2015 budget! And so you bunch of dullwits go and put a damper on it all by re-electing a dithering idiot loser, Tom Dolan, and then electing two known crooks and scoundrels, Rich Touchette and Jim Youmans. That’s just what the doctor ordered to fix Coeymans, people, a great police chief and an honest police department with crooks and bullies on the town board! Congratulations, you’re all now charter members of the DUMBASS CLUB.

How is it possible that Coeymans voters could put that crook Touchette in the Albany county legislature. He’s listed as one of the plaintiffs in a case that is trying to kill economic development in Coeymans; do you really think he’s going to do better in Albany? If he’s so great, why didn’t you re-elect him to the town board in 2013? Short memories or brain dead voters kill communities. You’re well on your way, Coeymans.

Apart from demonstrating that you’re all a bunch of terminal retards and dumb as a rock, the only other alternative is this: You’ve been had, Coeymans! Tom Dolan and his welfare parasites, the ghetto on the hill, sold their votes for benefits. That’s the only other way to explain this situation. It’s the only way a halfway sane community could possibly justify such dumbass election results: The Coeymans dumbocrap party used every dishonest and villainous trick in the book to get the votes they needed to keep Coeymans in the democrap strangle-hold and part of the democrat political machine run by the Albany democrat mafia. And that’s exactly what Tom Dolan and his democrap thugs did, in fact!


Crandall and Youmans show Coeymans voters what they have to offer. Dolan not shown (nothing to offer).

Coeymans, you really have to call for an investigation of this election. It couldn’t have been more crooked. No sane community could possibly have elected such a bunch of crooks, bullies and scoundrels without some unlawful help from the party leadership. This is outrageous and beyond suspicious!

COEYMANS VOTERS NEED TO DEMAND A RECALL, A REVOTE! SAVE YOURSELF COEYMANS!

Those of you who read this blog had all the information you needed handed to you! All of it from court records, the media, from reliable sources. We even provided you with links to that important information so you could send it to your friends and neighbors. SHAME ON YOU ALL!!! YOU DESERVE EVERYTHING YOU GET FROM YOUR CROOKS AND BULLIES YOU ELECTED, AND THEN SOME. WE’LL BE WATCHING AND HAVING A GREAT LAUGH AT YOUR IMBECILIC CHOICES.

NOW, YOU CAN EITHER SIMMER IN YOUR OWN PUTRID JUICES OR YOU CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. THE ALTERNATIVE IS TO LET BULLY YOUMANS, CROOKS DOLAN AND THEIR CONIES PLAY YOU ALL FOR THE FOOLS YOU PROVED YOURSELVES TO BE.

AND NEW BALTIMORE HAD BETTER KEEP VERY CLOSE TABS ON THEIR ELECTION RESULTS. REPUBLICANS SEEM TO THINK THAT PLAYING BY THE RULES WILL GET THEM SOMEWHERE; HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE THEM TO REALIZE THAT THE DEMOCRAPS DON’T HAVE ANY RULES. TIME TO GET THE ATTORNEYS INVOLVED.

Our Picks for Local Elections on Tuesday, November 3rd

Who can argue the fact that we tell you what you need to know, not what the politicians and crooks want you to know so that they can live large at your expense.

Our readers know very well that we are not beholding to any political party; we hit them all pretty hard when they mess up. They hate us for our honesty and for the truth but Hey! Somebody’s gotta do it! You also know that we look very closely at experience, potential and job performance, not the circus performance we’ve all been seeing performed by the wannabe’s. We’ve already spilled a hell of a lot of ink telling you why some of the candidates are a definite NO! for our town halls and Albany County legislature. That’s why we are letting you know our picks for local government.

To share this article with a friend just copy and paste this link into an email and hit send!

http://wp.me/p2jPFe-2w0

Here are our recommendations:

vote

For the Albany County Legislature:

YES! for Richard W. Mendick Albany County Legislator, District 36. ABSOLUTELY NO! for Matt-the-Mutt Miller (Click here to know  Why?)

Matt-the-Mutt Miller

NO! Matt-the-Mutt Miller!

For Town of Coeymans:

NO Youmans, NO Crandall,<br>NO Dolan, NO Touchette!

NO Youmans, NO Crandall,
NO Dolan, NO Touchette!

YES! for Stephen Flach Coeymans town supervisor. NO! for his dishonor dumbocrap Phil Crandall (Click here to Why?)

YES! for Bill Tryon Coeymans town board member. HELL NO! for dumbocrap Jim Youmans (Click here to know Why?)
YES! for Stephanie Hamilton Coeymans town board member. NO! for dumbocrap Dithering-Tom Dolan (Click here to know Why?)
YES! for Peter Masti Albany County Legislator, District 37. NO! for dumbocrap Rick Touchette (Click here to know Why? We also think Mr Touchette’s record of corruption and dishonesty knocks him off right from the start, that even despite the fact that Peter Masti is a dud, better a dud than a scoundrel in the Albany County legislative brothel! Masti’s a nurse so he should be able to wangle some Viagra to keep things up and going.)

For the Town of New Baltimore:

We’d like to note for our New Baltimore friends and Neighbors that the local rag, the Ravena News Herald, has again snubbed the town of New Baltimore and has not published a whit of information for NB residents on who’s running for what! Time to boycott the News Herald and the Johnson Newspaper mob! (We found only one short article on Dellisanti and Fullerton in the October 28, 2015, Daily Mail). Talk with your wallet and checkbooks! Stop buying the Ravena News Herald and stop advertising in the rags of the Johnson Newspaper mob!

Arthur Fullerton's Campaign Slogan

Arthur Fullerton’s
Campaign Slogan

YES! for Nick Delisanti  for New Baltimore Town Supervisor. DEFINITELY NO! for dumbocrap Arthur Fullerton (Click here to know Why?)

YES! for Pat Linger Greene County Legislator, District 36. NO! for dumbocrap James “Jim” vanSlyke (Click here to know Why?)

Persson and Dunn are out of the race as far as we’re concerned. They have nothing to offer New Baltimore (they’re Chris Norris and Lisa Benway in Dunn and Persson suits. Persson is dull-dull-dull and hasn’t got the chance of a snowflake in hell! Dunn is done! Too many character issues and totally caca. The other candidates By the way, Norris and Benway have been conspicuously absent from NB board meetings for quite a while. Is that how the dumbocraps represent the people who vote for them?)

We sincerely hope that the information we publish on this blog helps you, our friends and neighbors, to make wiser and more informed choices when going to the polls. It’s our community and we have to serve it in whatever way we can. Please vote whichever way your heads and hearts point you but vote and vote conscientiously for the good of us all!

RCS is Disgusting! Good only to complain but no balls to do something about the liars and cheats!

RCS and Its Elected Officials Shame Themselves Before More Than 250,000 Readers! Right here on the Smalbany Blog. Even on national media!

GaGa Gibson

GaGa Gibson

Chris Gibson, asking for relection votes and opposing the “Pink Obama” Sean Eldridge, Shamed His 19th Congressional District and Himself by not Fully Investigating the RCS Anti-Military Bias and Disrespect for the National Guard. The RCS scandal made Fox News and other National Media but Gibson didn’t catch it. He promised to investigate fully. Did he? And what about Paul Tonko of the 20th Congressional District, also representing part of the RCS school district? Are they all Pinko’s? If that’s the choice we have for leaders we ought to all be suicidal!

He Died So You Could Speak, Participate in Your Democracy! Don't Waste His Sacrifice! Don't Waste Your Freedoms!

He Died So You Could Speak!
Did You Participate in Your Democracy?

RCS Wasted His Sacrifice! You Wasted Your Freedoms!
RCS Showed Itself to Be Ungrateful and Cowardly on October 14th! What do you all plan to do now? In future?

Your Elected Officials Have Successfully Excluded You From Participation—
And You Sit Back and Let It Happen!

They do this in many subtle and sometimes unlawful ways: They hold secret meetings, they quietly (very quietly) invite the public to “public” hearings, they sometimes lie outright. But Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk’s elected officials have found a far better way to do their mischief: They schedule important meetings on the same day at the same time but in different places far from each other to ensure that you can’t make both, even though you have a civic obligation, or a personal interest in attending both. Pretty clever, right?

Well, it’s up to you, citizens, residents to stop that despicable violation of your rights! Tell them to coordinate village of Ravena, town of Coeymans, and RCS Central School District board of education meetings so that you can attend all or any of them, if you’d like. They must be on different days, at least! But do any of you have the balls to bring this to the public meetings and demand fairness? Apparently not.

On Tuesday, October 14, 2014 Both the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk board of education meeting and the Coeymans town board meeting both held at 7:00 p.m. Pretty stupid, right. And YOU were effectively prevented by your elected officials from attending two very important public meetings, or forced to attend one while missing the other. But most of you decided to do something other than exercise your rights…Can you even remember what that was? Probably not.

Why you needed to be there, and why you should have been there but you lost the opportunity to be at both. Why? Because you allowed them to exclude you and you still do nothing about it!

 

RCS high-school principal Tom DiAcetis, Superintendant Alan McCartney's Education

RCS high-school principal Tom DiAcetis, Superintendant Alan McCartney’s
Idea of Education

First of all, ALL VETERANS, PARENTS OF VETERANS, SUPPORTERS OF VETERANS, and all members of veterans committees in local government (Did you hear that, New Baltimore? Mr Guthrie and others?) should have attended the RCS board of education meeting on Tuesday October 14, at 7 p.m. at the A.W. Becker elementary school. You didn’t! You should have put Mr Tom DiAcetis, Mr Alan McCartney and the entire board of education on notice that their scandalous conduct concerning the National Guard and our Armed Forces would not be tolerated and they shamed this commuity. You didn’t! You should have demanded the resignation of Tom DiAcetis and Alan McCartney. You didn’t! You should have denounces the RCS board of education for their anti- military bias. Did you? NO! You didn’t! You not only didn’t take any prisoners you threw down your guns and ran! You swallowed their mealy-mouthed, pablum-puking lies and stupid excuses…hook, line and sinker. You let them off the hook this time—AGAIN! They’re accountable but you make them immune. AGAIN! RCS is DISGUSTING!

Colonel Chris Gibson United States Congressman

Colonel Chris Gibson

Mr Chris Gibson, Congressman for the 19th Congressional District, and Mr Paul Tonko, Congressman for the 20th Congressional District represent us in this RCS Central School District. Both needed to be held accountable and both needed to proactively investigate the RCS scandal perps, DiAcetis and McCartney, and both needed to reprimand the RCS board of education for the RCS anti-military scandal that embarrassed this community nationwide! Gibson and Tonko are up for re-election and Gibson, at a recent New Baltimore Republican Club meeting assured residents and voters that he would have his office investigate immediately. He assigned his top aid, Kevin Cumm, to head the investigation. UPDATE: He apparently didn’t do what he promised to do. We ask you: Did Chris Gibson dishonor his office, his district and his uniform? Same should be asked of Paul Tonko!

The Town of Coeymans town board was meeting at the same time, on Tuesday, October 14, 2014, at 7 p.m., in the Coeymans town hall. Anyone who was not at the RCS board of education meeting should have made every effort to be at the Coeymans town board meeting. You needed to find out about the pending lawsuits challenging the half-baked re-zoning done by the town of Coeymans (started when Tom Dolan, Tom Boehm and Dawn Rogers had the majority on the town board. Did you let them fool you into thinking it was all done by Flach and his new majority, like they’re trying to do! Looks like you did. A New York state court judge found the re-zoning to be illegal but that hasn’t stopped the Coeymanazis from doing what they please and ignoring YOUR VOICES!

 "DoDo Cop" Darlington sharing some misinformation.

“DoDo Cop” Darlington sharing some misinformation.

Former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington abruptly jumped ship like the rat he is. He abandoned his department, his staff, the town of Coeymans and us! Gregory Darlington shouldn’t have been honored by the town of Coeymans for his dishonorable conduct and his selfish, irresponsible abandonment of his post. Darlington cowardly abandoned his post and his community! If Darlington didn’t have enough respect for this community, who paid for his fat ass, to tell us directly of his plans, this community doesn’t owe him a thing! (While we’re paying him a fat pension check, we think he’s going to be moonlighting in a second job, hired by our impotent race-card flasher Albany County District Attorney Pudenda David Soares. Then DoDo Darlington can sit next to his wife, who is a secretary in Soares’ office. Nice and cozy!) If Darlington could do that to the Coeymans police department, this community had a responsibility to itself and to its children to seriously reassess the situation and seriously consider eliminating the Coeymans police department, and turning over law enforcement to the professionals, the Albany County Sheriff’s department and to the New York State Police. Save Coeymans more than $a million$ in tax money that can be invested in things we really need in this community. You’re paying twice, three times for law enforcement in Coeymans. Let’s see if we can get some leadership and pay only twice. (Let the Albany County Sheriff’s department or the New York State Police rehire the Coeymans police department staff, retrain them, deploy them if they’re really needed.)

But you allowed the ball-less wonders on the Coeymans town board to pay homage to the ineffective, cowardly Darlington and you allowed them to present him with a retirement badge so he can continue flaunting the law, so he can continue to be the scofflaw out of uniform that he was in uniform at your expense. Why didn’t you raise the roof when they did that, Coeymans? Sorry! We overlooked the fact that you’re a town of sheeple. Sorreeee!

Albany County has a highly sophisticated 911 emergency response system in place, and it’s paid for with your tax dollars! Coeymans has a bunch of insiders using antique equipment that has to be updated. Ask the Coeymans town board how much the equipment update is going to cast you?!?  Be smart and tell the Coeymans town board to eliminate the dispatchers and save almost a $half-million dollars$. We’re paying twice for the same service. We’re duplicating services. There are some who want to continue this stupidity and they come out to give their idiotic reasons why. But the voice of reason shouts out for them to shut up and get the facts. Tom Dolan, Tom Boehm, Mary Driscoll and others are blowing misinformation out their butts. Tell the town board of Coeymans to eliminate the dispatchers (Let Albany County re-hire them if they’re really needed.) Weasel Peter Masti is pandering again and talking about getting facts. You’re eating that up to like a bunch of starving dogs. Read the facts on this blog because you’re not going to get them from the Coeymans town board and least of all from that rodent Masti!

No fatalities. YET!

No fatalities. YET!

Again, we STILL have to address the dangerous situation existing with the Port of Coeymans heavy truck traffic, and we need some real facts and explanations about the Carver Companies bridge and what the town is doing to ensure our safety and the safe movement of traffic into and out of the hamlet of Coeymans on Rt 144. AND we STILL have to get some honest answers from the Coeymans town board. Not the lies and smoke and mirrors response they gave to one resident who asked some burning questions on October 14th. Where were the rest of you complainers? (Don’t tell us you were at the BoE meeting, because you’d be lying!)

We also wanted to know about all the jobs that were promised. We STILL want an answer to that one. Did you ask? How many have been created so far? How many are actually going to be created?

We want to know why our quality of life is all of a sudden declining with the added truck traffic, the dust, the increase in noise pollution in our community as the result of the re-zoning and the increased activity in the Port and the surrounding area. Mr Peter Masti, who is neither a native of the area nor a blue collar worker, has published his desire to keep Coeymans blue collar. Why is that? (Masti and his kind have to go!) But these are questions Ravena-Coeymans residents have to ask. Masti’s a blow hard and goes wherever the wind blows him. He’s a jellyfish! But has anyone confronted him and his vomit publicly? Where were you all on October 14th?

That’s why you had to make every effort to attend the Coeymans town board meeting on Tuesday, October 14, 2014, at 7 p.m. in the Coeymans town hall! Our local elected officials don’t seem to be able to make good decisions on their own. They needed your help. You needed to tell them them what you want! You needed to tell them to stop the lies and you needed to get the true facts! You failed us, your community and yourselves!

We suggested you make a couple of phone calls, send a couple of e-mails. You needed to get your family, friends, neighbors activated and organize yourselves so that some of you could have attended one of the meetings and the others attended the other meeting. Did you show your elected officials that you could shake things up and put their feet to the fire, so they do what’s best for US! Did you? We think NOT! There’s still time and opportunity to pick up the pieces. Start now and make your preparations to organize your and your family’s, your neighbors’ and friends’ participation in the upcoming village of Ravena and town of Coeymans board meetings, and the RCS board of education meetings.

Wow! McCartney-DiAcetis’ Stupidity Goes National, International

The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District Has Done It Again but this Time It’s Gone Absolutely Viral!

BANG! DiAcetis and McCartney Loose the Battle in the National Media! The Students Win the Support of the Media.

BANG! DiAcetis and McCartney Loose the Battle in the National Media!The Students Win the Support of the Media.

News Media Unanimous: DiAcetis and McCartney Were Wrong!

Several national news media have picked up the McCartney-DiAcetis scandal involving the banning of a t-shirt handed out at the high-school by a National Guard recruiter. Not a single one of the reports paints McCartney or DiAcetis in very pretty colors, in fact, they almost unanimously condemn DiAcetis’ action and McCartney’s ridiculous defenses.

One commentator on Fox’s “Outnumbered” asked whether DiAcetis and McCartney were going to black out all the muskets and weapons in the history books used at the schools.

We almost think the media plagiarized this blog—You know, just like RCS CSD interim superintendent Alan R. McCartney plagiarizes his graduation speeches—because many of the words used in the television discussions and the print media echo our own choices of words. “Disgraceful”, “scandalous”, “silly”, “unpatriotic”, “childish”, etc. Some even suggested that RCS high-school principal Tom DiAcetis has an “anti-military bias.” The reporters and the panel on Fox News “Outnumbered” even suggested that DiAcetis and McCartney are sending a completely wrong message and that they were excessively heavy-handed and too extreme. We, of course, agree entirely. One commentator on Fox’s “Outnumbered” asked whether DiAcetis and McCartney were going to black out all the muskets and weapons in the history books used at the schools.

This one's for you two, DiAcetis and McCartney

This one’s for you two, DiAcetis and McCartney

We warned you but you ignored us! Now, AGAIN, you’re in the news AGAIN and it’s not because you’re so good; your choices are still bad and they’ve come back AGAIN to bite you in the butts.

We have in the past written about the wrong messages being sent to the community and to students by school administrators, the district offices and the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk board of education. We warned that they were not leaders and that disaster was just around the corner. We warned that the likes of James Latter, who has a record of abuses, including violations of confidentiality. We warned of the problems looming with the unbalanced composition of the RCS board of education and that it was biased in favor of the teachers and the teachers union, NYSUT. We warned that Mary Partridge-Brown, a close friend of RCS union representative Matt Miller, the teacher who was double-dipping as so-called energy manager at the high-school, and who was teaching only a partial load so that he could do his union work on school time and still draw his teacher’s salary and all benefits. Mary Partidge-Brown’s husband is Patrick Brown, a sitting RCS board of education member. We warned about Alan McCartney’s self-serving pattern of kissing up to anyone who will keep him in his part-time, on-his-own-schedule, interim superintendent’s job where he’s collecting more than $100,000 of RCS Central School District money. We warned that the RCS board of education was no longer representing the community but was now an extension of the special interests of the teachers and of the teachers union. We warned of the abysmal graduation rates and the student abuse by coaches and teachers. We warned you but you ignored us! Now, AGAIN, you’re in the news and it’s not because you’re so good.

We’ve written volumes on the goings-on in the schools but especially the RCS high school. Everything from bullying to the local Coeymans cop who was assigned as the security liason, the RSO, Danielle Crosier, who according to students was doing a wrestling coach on school grounds, riding a school bus with the football team to away games, and wrecking patrol cars. Did you listen? Did you protest? No! She’s still there. Why? Oh, by the way, she carries her service weapon, a gun, around the school but that doesn’t seem to bother DiAcetis or McCartney. They’re too busy messing around with National Guard t-shirts.

How can DiAcetis and McCartney continue in leadership positions and how can they govern the district and the students now that they have lost the battle?

Enjoying the crow?

Enjoying the crow?

When a leader loses face vis-a-vis those he’s supposed to be leading, the only thing left to do is to resign.

We warned that there is no leadership in the RCS CSD. In fact, Tom DiAcetis and McCartney are non-leaders, who operate best when they can be heavy-handed and vindictive. If they were non-leaders before, what are they now that they’ve made complete asses of themselves not only with the students, the community, but now with the entire nation!?! Now that the situation and the story has gone wildfire on the national media, complete with discussions of quotes from McCartney’s defenses, the kids are actually in the lead. The kids are winning the battle. DiAcetis and McCartney have lost face because the kids have trumped them. This creates a very difficult position in the RCS central school district: How can DiAcetis and McCartney continue in leadership positions and how can they govern the district and the students now that they have lost the battle? Just imagine the situation now with the kids looking at them as losers!

When a leader loses face vis-a-vis those he’s supposed to be leading, the only thing left to do is to resign, to turn in the keys. A leader who is made to eat crow by those he’s supposed to be leading is incapable of leading; he’s tainted. DiAcetis has no other choice but to resign and let someone who has half a brain take the reins. McCartney was given a chance, despite his tainted background, he showed promise in the beginning but then his true colors came through: he’s an opportunist, he can’t be trusted, he’s using this school district to pad is pockets while still collecting his pension, and he’s lost the ability to lead, he’s lost students’ and our confidence. McCartney has to go.

The Vermin Must Go! The Editor

The Vermin Must Go!
They are killing us!

The vermin on the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk board of education have been very quiet. That’s exactly what we’d expect from them when the cat hits the fan. Latter and his band of scoundrels have balls only when they can ambush; when the lights go on they scurry fast for their holes. They’re good rats and know when to come out and when to hide. But you need to go after them and force them to do what you elected them to do.

It's the only moral, decent, honorable thing to do. DiAcetis and McCartney Must Go! The RCS BoE is on the carpet to act on this scandal. Let them show their colors!

It’s the only moral, decent, honorable thing to do. DiAcetis and McCartney Must Go!

Coeymans Town Board Meeting: Circus of Imbeciles, the Insane

Listening to the Absolute Ignorant Bull on Channel 11’s Coverage of the Coeymans Town Board Meeting would Make a Maggot want to Vomit!

Coeymans Board: We Don’t Know. We don’t have the facts.

The Coeymans Town Board Meetings are the Best Freak Show in Town

The Coeymans Town Board Meetings are the Best Freak Show in Town

First of all, the fact that the Coeymans town board admits that it doesn’t have the facts and figures it needs to intelligently discuss the proposal of eliminating the pool of so-called dispatchers–actually a group of family members of the Coeymans police department; just check out the names and the relationships–is the usual embarassment.

Supervisor Steven Flach has fallen on his face innumberable times these past months starting with the zoning debacle, to the Carver Laraway sell out, the fairytale of job creation, the continuing untold story of adverse environmental impact of the businesses to which the Judas administration has sold out, law suits (these are nothing new, we’ve collected documentation of literally dozens of Notices of Claims, mostly against the Coeymanazi police department) and the list goes on and on. The problem is that voters don’t have the chance to elect people who know what they’re doing, they elect a bunch of amateurs with little or no government savvy and now they have to live with it.

Then we have the Gestapo Coeymans police chief, Gregory Darlington, smoozing the ditzy demented old women who get up and make absolute fools of themselves but are pandering to Darlington who is eating it all up like the glutton he is. Darlington’s a cheap act but like most low-life, he’ll do anything to survive.

What came out in tonight’s Coeymans town board meeting (September 22, 2014) was what we have been observing over and over again in the past: No one seems to know what they’re talking about and no one has any facts. What’s worse still is that what we’ve been saying for months now about the Coeymans town board–even after Flach got the majority and dumped Tom Boehm and Dawn Rogers, two shameful supporters of Darlington and his money pit police department, is this: Flach and the board simply don’t do their homework and have the despicable habit of acting on ignorance or halfbaked notions. In fact, most of the board, including Supervisor Steven Flach actually said they “don’t know”. How in hell can they appear for a meeting and not have their ducks in a row. But it happens again and again. No wonder residents are furious and frustrated.

you dont know

And enough already. We thought we heard the end of Tom Boehm’s smoozing of his harlot Coeymans police department and its main pimp, Gregory Darlington. Boehm to his discredit has a bad memory and doesn’t have the sense to keep his mouth shut–especially when Tom Dolan throws his own words in his face! But we’ve said that so often before about Boehm. But then, Coeymans weasel Tom Dolan is a perverse opportunist, as we all know when he speaks against the zoning when the zoning scandal was hatched on his watch together with Flach, Boehm and Rogers. It’s only now that the stuff is hitting the fan. But still, Flach sets himself up on the defensive only have to defend more and more of what he’s doing.

Mary Driscoll’s glowing but demented endorsement of Flach’s performance, of Darlington’s department, of small and large government, centralized schools, and worse still, her support and total ignorance of how the 911 dispatch system works only confirms our assessment many times published on this blog: Some of the local residents who are most vociferous and outspoken should really be on drugs, sedatives actually. We have some advice for Mary Driscoll: Listen, dear, it’s not emotion, it’s dementia.

It's Happening Before Your Eyes

It’s Happening Before Your Eyes

What we heard at the Coeymans town board meeting was total misinformation and uninformed blather. Someone, perhaps even someone on the Coeymans town board, should actually learn how 911 works in terms of dispatching emergency services. Maybe then Mr DoDo Darlington won’t be so smug or so brave when his lies and the misinformation is replaced by hard facts and a rational report. $300,000 is a good chunk of money that’s being paid from taxpayer dollars to fund a small bunch of insiders who are duplicating a service already being provided very professionally.

Why was Coeymans police chief so amused by all of this?  We’ve already made the point that when all of this is going on the Coeymans police are pretty scarce.

Driscoll: I get so emotional!

Driscoll: I get so emotional!

One speaker, again speaking from a very self-centered and extraordinary point of view, did make some good points while exhibiting her infant (Was that a prop intended to make a point we wonder?). While her sole justification for wasting taxpayer dollars was her own pregnancy, she did rub Darlington’s nose in some nasty stuff but he didn’t seem to catch on. The woman made the point that the trucks terrorizing Coeymans and Ravena streets are a danger to life and limb; a real threat to local residents and children! Why was Darlington laughing and smiling through all of her statement? The speaker also made the point that the trucks are racing through the hamlet of Coeymans and Ravena, certainly going more than 30 miles an hour. She also made the point that they’re on phones or doing something, certainly not paying attention to their driving. Again, Why was Coeymans police chief so amused by all of this?  We’ve already made the point that when all of this is going on the Coeymans police are pretty scarce. So, Mr Darlington, wipe that smile off your stupid porcine snout and answer the question: Why is this happening and where are your Coeymanazis when all of this is going on?

We know where they are, Mr Darlington, they’re harassing the residents who are attempting to clean up that cesspool of Coeymans. Handing out parking tickets to residents unloading supplies to renovate the distressed properties. On Coeymans police chief Darlington’s orders, according to one Coeymans gestapo. Yes, there were witnesses when Darlington’s monkey made the statement. And Yes! Coeymans, you can ask yourselves, Will the retaliation and intimidation never stop?!? Our answer: Yes, as soon as you clean out the nest of vermin in the basement of Coeymans town hall!

vermin

As we watched and listened, it became apparent that Mr Darlington was manipulative as ever and that Mr Flach was as timid as ever. Even though not speaking in an official capacity, Tom Boehm was speaking as the smoke and mirrors artist, as always, pandering to his friends in the Coeymans p.d. Tom Dolan, was doing his carnival sideshow, trying to appear like he knew something and was the only one who did. All of them were in the dark of their own diseased egos.

Coeymans: You’re like alcoholics, who know the bottle is killing them but it’s all you have, so you cling to your addiction even though it’s killing you.

FEAR!

But one thing stood out clearly: At least the speakers, if not the entire group present at that meeting, seemed to think that in the perhaps hundreds of communities across New York state, most of which do not have expensive duplicated services in their budgets, that their pregnant citizens are bleeding to death on their kitchen floors or their elderly are being eaten alive in their garages by “rabid” dogs because they don’t have local dispatchers! How stupid! What we heard under all the words are the voices of a couple of frightened people who didn’t trust their elected officials. The speakers were speaking from their own traumatic or imagined encounters with their own mortality. They also represented the essence of addiction and attachment: No matter whether good or bad. You’re like alcoholics, who know the bottle is killing them but it’s all they have, so they cling to their addiction even though it’s killing them. A sick kind of greed, where you have something and you cling to it too anxious to let go of what you have, too scared to take a risk.

And we can also add for the benefit of the concerned resident with the infant: You would have gotten to St Peters just as fast if you simply called 911. And if you get rid of the duplicated services in Coeymans, that is, the dispatchers, the $300,000 saved in the budget may help to put those sidewalks and safety measures in place that you claimed were so desperately needed to keep you and your children safe. Maybe if the Coeymans town board looks at things with some foresight and vision and stops playing knee-jerk, there’d be less waste, better services, and a safer, more vibrant community. All that’s been done so far is promote deterioration and unsafe conditions, spoiling our streets, our air and our environment, endanger our children and residents, while supporting unnecessary and inefficient fixtures like the Coeymans police department and its little club of friends.

Mr Boehm and others, but especially Mr Darlington, you are transparent not because you have an ounce of integrity or honesty—it’s clear to those of us with eyes to see and ears to hear that you have neither integrity nor honesty—but because you are so see-thru, so insubstantial, so common. Voters got rid of Boehm but left Darlington. Big mistake. The Coeymans town board hasn’t got the brains or the balls to tackle this problem or any of the grotesque problems facing Coeymans. Unfortunately, most of Coeymans isn’t up to the task either.

You are being sucked dry by a small group of parasitic sponges

You’re so terrified of losing something that you lose sight of the fact that you are being sucked dry by a small group of parasitic sponges. Either they are there padding their own nests with salaries that are far beyond their abilities (Darlington and most of the Coeymans p.d., the Ravena Public Works Department); you elect amateurs who are using you all like an army of AAA batteries to run their sick egos. No wonder you’re terrified! You take an incompetent blond bimbo off of the streets and where do you put her? You put her in the high-school! Why don’t you just lace the kids’ food with Ebola? You allow your stupid RCS board of education to put Danielle Crosier in the high school as SRO and then let her instruct in road safety! Are you all nutz? She rams parked cars, rides the shoulder of the road, endangers a minor in her custody, and you put her in the high school! Darlington and his pet cockroach, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca used you and continue to use you to provide them with a playground and those two parasitic sponges, as stupid as they are, used and continue to use you up. Lucky for Coeymans the dorks at the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs were imbecilic enough to take Deluca off our hands. But we’re still stuck with mummy-mayor John Bruno’s senile legacy, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, another money pit that he provided to another parasitic sponge, Cathy Deluca, and one which the present amateur, bartender-become-mayor, monkey mayor Bill “Moose” Misuraca hasn’t had the balls to eliminate. And you’re worried about getting rid of the parasite sponges in the dispatcher’s den? Imbeciles!

High-School Principal Tom DiAcetis “Intimidated” and “Offended” by National Guard T-Shirt.
A Real Educator!

After seeing the National Guard T-shirt, DiAcetis talks to his therapist.

After seeing the National Guard T-shirt, DiAcetis talks to his therapist.

And then you have cowards like the high-school principal, Tom Diacetis, who suspends a student for wearing a tee-shirt handed out by a National Guard recruiter authorized to be on school property, because the shirt “intimidated” and “offended” him. Diacetis and all the others who are intimidated by anything that represents selfless service to community and country; the same cowards who never put on a uniform but are there to educate our kids in morals and values (while they’re humping each other in the coach’s office or doing someone’s harlot). The National Guard recruiter was told to leave the school. Oh! Did we mention violation of civil rights, abuse of First Amendment protected speech, Mr DiAcetis? As principal of the RCS high school you must have heard of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights, haven’t you?  Yeah! Harlots in the halls, cowards in the offices, bullies on the playground, and parasitic sponges in town hall. RCS education at its best and a real model system for the districts with real grad rates! And you’re crying about having to cut fat from the budget? Get a brain!

The bottom line: Ravena-Coeymans continues to be a cesspool of ignorance and corruption; Retaliation and intimidation continue as business as usual, and the same stupid sockpuppets get up and puke their pablum making the parade of clowns complete. It’s a circus of the insane.

Shame on You! Laraway, Flach, Masti, Dolan, Langdon, Burns!

Yes! Shame on You Coeymans Supervisor Flach, Town Board members Masti, Dolan, Langdon, Burns! You not only sold out the town of Coeymans as a unit of local government you sold out the community and the residents of Ravena-Coeymans to Carver Companies, TCI, and EMR.

Judas Politics in Coeymans

Judas Politics in Coeymans

Coeymans Town Board justified its decision to turn over Riverview Drive and part of Route 144 to Carver Laraway’s greed and megalomania despite local residents’ outcries. Carver Laraway got his way and Coeymans got a permanent dust storm and traffic delays but no jobs.

Several days ago, a local resident told us that the Carver Companies, TCI, and EMR were holding a so-called job fair. We missed it. But when someone slipped a copy of the flyer announcing the so-called job fair under our office door, we understood why we missed it. The so-called job fair was held on a Tuesday morning for only three hours, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Anyone with half a brain can clearly see that this was another smoke and mirrors act on the part of Carver Companies’ PR person. Who in hell could get to a job fair on a Tuesday, let alone during such a brief period.

But the best came when we examined the flyer itself. It is full of propaganda bullshit and lists a number of jobs using their New York State Employment Service job codes. Not only that, the contact for the jobs is an employee of the New York State Department of Labor, a Mr Brian Suedkamp, whose contact details appear in the flyer but no Carver Companies contact. We found that rather odd. Don’t you?

In addition, the seal of the State of New York Department of Labor conspicuously displayed on page 2, making the impression that the whole thing is the State of New York’s effort. And again, no contact information at Carver. Suedkamp’s telephone number is given as (518) 457-1504 and his e-mail is brian.suedkamp@labor.ny.gov  Again, no Carver connection. So what’s this Carver Companies job fair crapola, anyway.

In the meantime, we have contacted the New York State Department of Labor for clarification of its involvement in the so-called “job fair.” We’re also contacting the New York State Attorney General’s office to ask for an inquiry. Let’s see how transparent govrernment really is.

Most of the jobs listed in the flyer are for truck drivers and heavy equipment operators—Carver probably needs them to ensure that the dust clouds stay up there and dust covers everything in sight. That may be to discourage new residents or to force current residents out because of the truck traffic, the dust and the other obstacles. But wait! Isn’t there a shortage of commercial driver license holders (truck drivers) and equipment operators? Carver isn’t creating any new jobs at all!

Have you seen this before?

Have you seen this before?

The other jobs are menial administrative jobs or custodial jobs. Low-paying and just that menial.

We drive through Coeymans Rt 144 about four times a day. For the past several days we’ve noticed a middle-aged man, in his late fifties, standing alone on the Coeymans Creek bridge, just opposite the Riverview Drive truck exit onto the bridge. He’s been standing there for what seems to be the entire day, in the blazing sun, armed with a traffic sign paddle, and protected only with a hard hat and a traffic vest. Sometimes you can see a water bottle. (See photo below.)

Carver's Creating Jobs in Coeymans! And pigs have wings too!

Carver’s Creating Jobs in Coeymans! And pigs have wings too!

Having seen him there so often and concerned that he is there in the blazing sun and in the middle of all that dust, we finally stopped today to ask him what he is doing there. He was very polite but didn’t want to answer many of our questions, saying that I was in danger and should not park at the corner of Rt 144 and Riverview Drive (Danger!?! Isn’t that still residential parking there? But not since Carver Laraway took over Riverview Drive! Now if you park there you’re in danger!)

Question: How can I be in danger if I’m standing on a public sidewalk or parked lawfully in a public parking area? Beats the hell out of me but perhaps our traffic watcher knows more than he’s giving out. Is Carver Companies creating that much of a hazard? And where is the Coeymans police department in all of this? Not one cop in sight. You surprised? We’re not.

The man was very firm but gentle that he could not talk and that he had to do his job: What he did tell us is that he was there to make certain the trucks got out safely. I could see that. He was there to stop traffic and make us wait so the trucks could get out.

This raises several questions for us: Firstly, is this the kind of job Carver Companies, TCI, and EMR are creating for Coeymans? More importantly, is this the way Carver is going to treat his employees? If you put a dog out on that bridge under those conditions you’d be in court for animal cruelty! How can it be done to a human being without consequences?

Question: Why hasn’t Carver Companies looked at the possiblity of installing two of those portable traffic control devices and sparing the poor employee the ordeal of standing in the sun all day long? He’s probably getting minimum wage to $15/hr, no benefits, and is part-time or a temporary employee; that way Carver doesn’t have to pay any benefits. Right? But then, if Carver put in those automatic devices it may make him look more human-friendly but would put that poor bastard out of a job. But Carver Companies could still take care of its own and keep its trucks moving, it could still keep the choking dust in the air, it could still slow traffic literally to a halt, and it could still inconvenience residents!

We agree with the resident, Barbara Heinzen, as reported in the June 5, 2014, News Herald: “The bridge is premature.” And residents’ questions and comments have gone unanswered and unnoticed.

The Temptation on the Creek Flach to Laraway: "Behold Coeymans! This, too, can be yours!"

The Temptation on the Creek
Flach to Laraway: “Behold Coeymans! This, too, can be yours!”

Coeymans has been sold out by a Judas town board whose small-town mentalities have been taken advantage of by slick talking business types. Mr Flach’s remarks like “It will alleviate truck traffic from Riverview Drive…” is obviously not true as we see two months later. Flach’s remark that “[t]he bridge will keep trucks coming from the Port of Coeymans to Riverview Drive off of SR 144” is also grossly inaccurate, if not totally stupid. Fact is, Coeymans town supervisor Mr Stephen Flach and his cuckoo (or cuckold) cronies Peter Masti, Kenneth Burns, George Langdon, and Tom “Dumbo” Dolan did not think this fiasco through, did not do their homework, got dazzled by empty promises, and betrayed the community of Ravena-Coeymans and all of the town of Coeymans.

Was it really worth the 30 pieces of silver, Judas Coeymans Board?

While you choke on their dust may they choke on their poor leadership!

Beware of the clowns on your town board!!! The Editor

 Coming up in our next issues:

We asked the towns of Coeymans and New Baltimore, and the Village of Ravena to tell us about their accomplishments over the past six months. ZILCH! We’ll take a closer look in an upcoming essay. You’d think the town and village boards would jump at the chance to tell us some of the good things they’ve accomplished. Think again! Or can it be they’ve done nothing?

Mr Peter Masti, sitting Coeymans town board member, likes to write letters to the editor, especially the editor of the Troy Record. Yes, you read that right. What the Nosey Herald doesn’t publish, Masti gets into the Troy Record. Problem is: Masti’s ignorant and insists on publishing that fact! We’ll analyze some of his masterbations…OOPS! We meant, masterpieces in an upcoming essay.

Elections are coming up. We’ll be discussing both Gregory Seeley, Greene County Sheriff, who will be seeking re-election, as well as New Baltimore town clerk candidate, Barbara Finke. Not all as rosy as you might think. Rob Astorino (Now isn’t “Rob” a poor choice of first name for NY governor candidate?) is also running for NY governor, hoping to send the simian Andrew Cuomo into oblivion, the office of the Greene County DA is up for grabs but by another Nobody. But we’ll have something to say about all that, especially local politicos. Not as much accountability or transparency as they promised last November. Surprised?

Stay tuned!
