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.)

WTF! RC Teen Center Coin Drop in Glenmont!

Update: 1 Jan 13. Mr Michael Fisher has responded to this article. We have published his response in its entirety with no edits in the Comments section. Please read all the comments to this article.

Ravena-Coeymans Teen Center Collecting in Glenmon?!?

Ravena-Coeymans Teen Center Collecting in Glenmont?!?

So what do you think you would say or your neighbors would say if, at the Four Corners junction on 9W in Ravena, the Bethlehem Center Sports Association were to set up shop, stop traffic, delay your trip home, while they’re collecting money from your RCS neighbors to fund their Bethlehem sports agenda? You’d probably say to yourself, “What in hell are they doing here? Get back to where you belong!” It’s only natural.

Bethlehem Center, NY (December 29, 2012) But that’s the situation we observed when approaching a long line of stopped cars and noting some fluorescent figures moving about in the intesection at Bethlehem Center at 9W and  Glenmont Road. We were doing errands and anxious to get home and thought to ourselves, “Oh, NO! Not an accident!” As the traffic inched towards the light we say that it wasn’t an accident but several people stopping cars and holding out containers. Now I thought, “Who are these people stopping traffic at a busy intersection, causing this back-up and delay?” Then a sloppily painted sign caught my eye and I felt really embarrassed: “Support the RC Teen Center!

Open Letter to NYSED Commissioner John B. King, Jr.

Matt Miller, Union Rep in the RCS Central Schools, and Ms Nobody Tavia Rauch of Selkirk, Published a Nonsensical So-Called Petition on Change.Org, and Their So-Called Supporters are Recruiting Chain-Letter Fashion any Psycho They Can Find Who Will Sign the Thing.

It's No Petition<br><big>It's a Chain-Letter</big><br>Designed to Hook YOU!

It’s No Petition
It’s a Chain-Letter
Designed to Hook YOU!

A Reader Has Responded with A Letter to New York State Education Department (NYSED) Commissioner Dr John B. King, Jr., and We’d Like to Reproduce it Here.


Dr. John B. King, Jr.
Commissioner of Education
89 Washington Avenue
Albany, New York 12234
Dear Commissioner King:

SubjectChange.org Petition by Matthew J. Miller and Tavia Rauch re: R. Krzykowski.

A very disturbing fact recently came to my attention and I’d like to address my feelings on the issue directly to you, as a concerned citizen, in this letter.

On about December 11, 2012, Mr Matthew J. Miller, a teacher at the RCS CSD high school and local NYSUT representative in the RCS CSD, joined with one Tavia Rauch of Selkirk, NY, to publish an online petition at Change.org. That petition is allegedly intended for your attention and requests that you intervene to remove a duly elected sitting board of education member. The petition makes unfounded claims and falsely accuses Mr Rodney Krzykowski of criminal activity. The petition itself and the recruited signers and their comments are slanderous and libelous. The petition itself and its signers cannot be properly validated.

Worse still, the petition is a hodgepodge of scripted comments and irrelevant accusations. The petition is not protected against multiple signings and even at least one dog has signed it! Many signers are not from the RCS CSD. In other words, the petition is simply another incident of Mr Matthew Miller and his local mob of retaliation, harassment, intimidation, and scandal.

I join with other community minded and civil members of this community to urge you to take no notice of such a ragtag attempt to slander and libel a dedicated servant of this community.

In the interest of my personal security and that of my family, I request that my identity not be revealed or disclosed, and that in the event of lawful production of this letter in response to good faith disclosure under the rules of discovery or under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Laws, that any information contained herein be obliterated and redacted to protect my identity.

Thank you for your attention and timely response.

Sincerely,

[Signature Redacted]

cc: Dr A.R. McCartney, Superintendent


If you’d like to join other concerned members of this RCS district and community who are sick and tired of Miller’s and the other un-American rabble rousers’ attempts to step all over your rights and to harass, intimidate, and coerce anyone not supporting their agendas, we’ve prepared a MS Word version of the above letter that you can download or copy, personalize and send off to Commissioner King to protest this ongoing stupidity. Just click the link below. Please don’t forget to send a cc to Dr Alan R, McCartney, RCS CSD Superintendent of Schools.

Psycho Set-up: Watch Out Mr Lukkens!

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

We’ve Seen the Videos But We Get Delayed Reports on What Actually Goes On That the Camera Misses. Maybe It’s Missing Too Much!

Crazy Like A Cat!

 We’ve commented on Josephine O’Connor’s uncanny nerve to keep the entire board of education on tether hooks and her arrogance to show up at the 11th hour on April 17th, just in time to give a heart-wrenching performance–and performance it was–only to cast the deciding vote to get the 2012-13 inflated school budget on the ballot and to saddle property-owners with an additional 6.8% on their tax levy. And what an amateurish performance it was!

We also reported on Josephine O’Connor’s idiotic “He called me fat!” dance at the high school, after the May 15th budget voting. That, too, was something only Josephine O’Connor heard in her head…seems no one else in the group or in the immediate area managed to hear anyone calling her fat (except for the voices in her head).

We then reported and Josephine O’Connor’s conspiracy with her father–and highly likely under the guidance and direction of others, because she’s too dumb to have set it all up herself–to get her father Joseph Edward “Joe” Tracey to threaten a local woman business owner and her family. She didn’t care that it got her lackey father arrested on misdemeanor aggravated harassment. But her father certainly left no doubt that they’re related when he requested a call from board of education president John Vadney, and proceeded to threaten Vadney on the speaker phone, which got Tracey arrested and allowed Vadney to get an order of protection against Tracey.

But not enough! Thanks to Josephine O’Connor’s conspiracies, and even after a Bethlehem town judge issues and serves the order of protection on Tracey personally, Josephine O’Cononr’s father, Joe Tracey ignores the judge’s order and manages to get the local Coeymanazis, Coeymans police officers Kerry Thompson (also working at the Albany County Sheriff’s department) and D. Crosier, in violation of Judge Jordan’s order of protection, to continue O’Connor’s and Tracey’s aggravated harassment and to unlawfully arrest the board of education president. Nice going Thompson and Crosier–accessories to violation of a lawful order of protection.

Cops with Dirty Hands

Not only did Thompson and Crosier aid and abet O’Connor’s conspiracy and Joe Tracey’s continuing harassment in blatant violation of an order of protection but they also denied Mr Vadney his due process rights and made an unlawful arrest, while ignoring a lawful order of protection. If the conspiracy, harassment, retaliation, intimidation, violation of due process rights and unlawful arrest were not enough, they further caused Mr Vadney and his entire family extraordinary psychological stress and placed them under duress, and defamed Mr Vadney. Not even a week after her shameful conduct, Josephine O’Connor–looking like she has had much better days, as we’re sure she must have–was forced to look on as RCS board of education president John Vadney was honored by the RCS Central School District for his achievements on the board and his selfless pursuit of excellence and continuing training: Superintendant Smith presented John Vadney with the Board Achievement Award, which is an award given by the New York State School Boards Association in recognition of training and continually expanding government knowledge and skills.

Mr Vadney’s son, upon entering the RCS High School building the Monday following the retaliation and harassment, denial of due process, and unlawful arrest was savagely attacked, NO! ambushed by another student, who struck the young man in the head and left lacerations on his neck and back! Josephine O’Connor’s conspiracies, her father, Joe Tracy’s participation, and Coeymanazi cops Kerry Thompson and D. Crosier now became the proxiate cause to endangering a minor and instigating a bully attack–a hate crime and assault and battery!

At the very same board of education meeting at which Mr Vadney was honored, the video of the meeting shows Josephine O’Connor sitting off at some distance from the Superintendant Elizabeth Smith and the president of the board Mr John Vadney, like some naughty child with a grimace, toying with a plastic water bottle, and allegedly kicking the table throughout the entire meeting. There’s something very disturbing about that sort of disturbed behavior in a scary person who claims to want to be a teacher! Not on this planet, honey!

Make the Move, Josephine!

But, it seems the set ups never cease. We have reports that Josephine O’Connor asked Mr Jeff Lukkens, one of the very persons her clique has been after and defamining, to ‘accompany her to the ladies room’ because she allegedly felt unsafe. (That’s understandable noting that the meeting was taking place in the RCS High School!) And, Mr Lukkens, being the nice guy that he is–damned fool, too–accompanies her. And who do they meet on the way? Our little friend, Jerry Deluca. Now what’s he lurking around for. Mr Lukkens tells Deluca to accompany O’Connor back. Wise move, Lukkens.

Why didn’t O’Connor ask her husband, who was at the meeting, to accompany her? Or someone from her own clique? Well, to an observer of all of this, it’s obvious: What was she going to do? Set up Lukkens, too? Claim he tried something along the way to the ladies room…or worse? Why would a grown woman feel so insecure? There’s something very strange going on in that head!

Our advice: Stay away from her or you’ll find yourself up against the wall with Deluca or one of his Coeymanazis cuffing you.

Why’s Deluca and the rest of the Coeymanazi gang now courting the people they were only weeks ago trying to lynch? Why? Because they’re losing ground and face. That’s why. The Rat Pack is trying to make nice but don’t trust them for a minute. They gotta go and yesterday! Send them back to the septic leach field where they came from, and fast!

More than $41 million dollars may become available and the Coeymanazis and the teachers association don’t want anyone in the way when it comes to spending it. Why do you think they’re trying to get everyone on the other side of the aisle to resign? Why do you think they’re trying every trick in the book to get the others off the board, even by setting them up, hoping that if they’re arrested or something, they’ll have to resign. That’s the strategy. But now that it’s not working, they’re putting on their make nice faces but now no one trusts them! So, Cathy Deluca, don’t waste your time we have your number. Jerry Deluca, don’t waste your time, either, we’ve had your number for a long time. Your train is heading for the cliff…hang on!

Any whining parents who voted YES! on the budget don’t waste anyone’s time. You made your bed now sleep in it. And when you roll over, ask Jerry or Cathy Deluca, or Donna Hommel, or the Bartletts, or any of the Coeymanzis why anything’s happening that you don’t quite like and didn’t expect to happen when you voted YES! While your at it, contact rcs.confidential@gmail.com and let those concerned citizens know what you’re bitching about and what the Coeymanazis respond! $41 million is one hell of a big pile of bottles and now Cathy Deluca wants you to collect more bottles. When will you people ever wake up.

Sorry Now?
You should have gotten off
the Deluca Express!

P.s. Jeff Lukkens: If you value your freedom and your good name, tell Josephine O’Connor to start wearing Depends or to get her hubby to get her to the ladies room. Do yourself a big favor!

Boycott the Times Union (a.k.a. Times Useless)

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

Of Penises and Post-Its
OR
How Long is the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk Community, or Any Community With Any Self-Respect, Going to Put Up with the Turdy Times Union (a.k.a. Times Useless) and Its Pulp-Fiction Journalists?

Scott Waldman & Dayelin Roman
Times Union Turd Journalists

The Only Use the Times Useless and it’s Turdy Journalists Have for Ravena, Coeymans, or Selkirk Is to Dig Up Some Sleeze or Smear, Or Create One to Sell Their Rag! People! Wake Up! The Times Union and Its Turd Journalists Show Up In This Community Only To Make Asses of It and Its Residents! All The Times Useless Prints About Us is NEGATIVE! Or Weeks Old! They’re too stupid to do any real investigative journalism to cover the reall news! Or are they silent for other more sinister reasons?

Scott Waldman and Dayelin Roman or any of the other illiterates they send out know nothing about the community, nothing about its history, nothing about its people and saunter in whenever they need someone or something to smear or slime, do their damage and run back to their pig pens. They smeared some local person or event, they sold their rag, they collect their 30 pieces of silver. That’s American journalism? Well, it is in the Albany and Capital District region. If they’re such hot shot journalists what the hell are they doing of all places at the Times Union, in Albany, and stuck with covering not news but what they fondly refer to as the “hill towns“…I guess that makes us all the hill people, then. Sounds like a title for a cheap horror flick. Don’t know if I can deal with that label! Can you? How about Pursuit of the Post-It People or Penal Penalty of the Penis Painter? Nah! Don’t do much for me either. Let’s get back to the real business before it gets really silly.

Beat it! Times Union! (Waldman’s probably beating it as we write!)

In better days when people like that showed up in our towns they’d be sent packing…or our local constable would make their lives uncomfortable. As it is, locals welcome them and their smear as if they were covering the prom queen’s first dance with her prince. No! Too positive. Are you people nutz? Do you like being made asses of? Do you hate yourselves that much? And our local protectors, our Coeymans Police are too busy harassing and intimidating local residents to give a whit about the carpetbaggers as they roll in. Maggots!

The report on the senior’s prank distracted me from Part II of the Geneology of Corruption, Residents Complain. But when I read the benign events at the high school when compared to some of the other high schools, I breathed a sigh of relief until…

I read RCS Superintendant of schools remark (as quoted by the Times Useless’ Scott Waldman, who we all know has a little trouble with facts, truth, and correct quotes):

“In an email, Superintendent Elisabeth Smith referred to the Post-It note prank as vandalism. She said the spray-painting was “most likely” a separate incident than what happened inside the school and student access to the building being investigated. She said police are looking into the spray-paint vandalism.

“As adults in this learning community, we are not willing to sacrifice the health and safety of ourselves or our students, we are not willing to sacrifice the integrity of our school building, and we will not tolerate the loss of valuable planning or instructional time,” she wrote. “These acts and any similar acts will be dealt with in accordance with our disciplinary code of conduct, and with the assistance of local law enforcement.” (“RCS seniors suspended over Post-It prank. School administrators identify 29 students by watching YouTube video,”  Times Union by Scott Waldman, Friday, June 8, 2012.)

Vandalism?” Any other place would call it art! Where are you MOMA?

Get a grip, Ms Smith! Senior pranking as benign as this should suffice with a simple single-day suspension and the commitment of the seniors to remove the penis paint! Law enforcement!?! Are you totally nutz? Who? The Coeymans Police. Don’t make me pee myself laughing! Maybe the FBI or the State Police? Yeah! That’ll be a priority case for them. Right after they arrest the entire Coeymans Police department! My guess is that it probably was a Coeymans cop, or one of your perv teachers or coaches that did the porno artwork!

I don’t doubt for a minute that you need law enforcement to control your rabid teachers and coaches, and your bullying problem, Ms Smith, or to control the lunatics on the RCS board of education in their backstabbing and conspiracy operations, but against the seniors for a prank? You really need to get some rest and reassess your policies!

If you feel like getting heavy-handed with your disciplinary and code of conduct policies, and involving law enforcement, try doing so in handling the budget vote irregularities and fraud, your looney-toon teachers and your bullies, getting the Coeymanazis off the PTO and off the board of education*! Try those for starters and application of code of conduct policies.

*There’s little hope of enforcing policies against teachers or teachers on the BoE because the Superintendant is a former teacher and principal at the elementary school; she’s in the thick of the cliques! But give her a chance and some time. Let her prove us wrong.

Goes to the Times Union

And is Shared by Collaborators
Turd Reporters Scott Waldman, Dayelin Roman, and
Superintendant of Schools Elizabeth Smith!

And let them attend their senior picnic! That’s an event that marks an important transition for them. No one has a right to deprive them of their moments…they’re entering a horrible world and need some fond memories to look back on. It ain’t been no picnic growing up in this community!

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!

I Pledge Allegiance to the Flag…Oh Yeah!?!

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

I Was Struck By an AHA! Moment When Reviewing the Video of the June 5 RCS Board of Education Meeting, and Wonder If Any Of Our Readers Are as Awed As I Am With this Observation

New Sign On Entering Coeymans

The president of the board of education announces the meeting and asks the assembly to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and a moment of silence. Everyone accepts the invitation, rises, and recites the words, then stand in silence. Happens every time that way. But it struck me that you pledge like you pray: MEANINGLESSLY. If it weren’t meaningless, you’d take that moment of silence and think about what you just pledged. But isn’t it kinda silly you’re pledging allegiance to “the flag?” Not to the Constitution, not to the People, Not to the Nation–and if your recitation of the so-called pledge is sincere, how do you explain your behavior after the pledge and the moment of silent reflection that should follow that recital?

Lynch Mob

Well, all you patriotic, loyal, pledge-spewing dyed-in-the-wool Americans, almost immediately after the pledge you turned like a pack of rabid rats on each other! On the board one evil twin continues the attacks of the ostracized other evil twin and demands the resignation of the board president! Others disrespect, insult, and interrupt other residents’ exercise of freedom of speech! Still others complain that they voted for something but aren’t getting it (Perhaps because they didn’t know what they were voting for?). Maybe you’re all in the wrong country, the wrong world, maybe the wrong universe. But one thing is damned certain: You are wrong-headed!

Did you know that Francis Bellamy (1855 – 1931), a Baptist minister, wrote the original Pledge in August 1892. He was a Christian Socialist. Yes! A Socialist!!!!

Francis Bellamy in his sermons and lectures described in detail how the middle class could create a planned economy with political, social and economic equality for all. The government would run a peace time economy similar to our present military industrial complex.

In 1892 Francis Bellamy was also a chairman of a committee of state superintendents of education in the National Education Association. As its chairman, he prepared the program for the public schools’ quadricentennial celebration for Columbus Day in 1892. He structured this public school program around a flag raising ceremony and a flag salute – his ‘Pledge of Allegiance.’

In 1940 the Supreme Court, in Minersville School District v. Gobitis, ruled that students in public schools, including the respondents in that case, Jehovah’s Witnesses who considered the flag salute to be idolatry, could be compelled to swear the Pledge. A rash of mob violence and intimidation against Jehovah’s Witnesses followed the ruling. In 1943 the Supreme Court reversed its decision, ruling in West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette that public school students are not required to say the Pledge, concluding that “compulsory unification of opinion” violates the First Amendment. In a later opinion, the Court held that students are also not required to stand for the Pledge. That’s democracy for you! Sounds a bit like RCS doesn’t it?

One objection states that a democratic republic built on freedom of dissent should not require its citizens to pledge allegiance to it, and that the First Amendment to the United States Constitution protects one’s right to refrain from speaking or standing (also a form of speech). Another objection lies in the fact that the people who are most likely to recite the Pledge every day, small children in schools, even many adults, cannot really freely give their consent, and many adults don’t completely understand the Pledge they are taking.

Now back to YOU! How do you reconcile your Ravena village slogan “The Friendship Community” (we’ll have more on this when we publish our “Incest and Better than Banjos” geneology of corruption article this weekend), the principles of the Pledge, and your behavior in the community and at public meetings, a right and a privilege of freedom of assembly to exercise the right of freedom of speech (a freedom interpreted to be limited by what you say and how you say it in the company you say it in)? And what do you reflect on during that holy moment of silence? Murder? Mahem? Hate? How you’re going to degrade or shame your neighbor? Whose resignation you’re going to demand tonite? Or how to justify the LIE, “It’s for the kids!”

I have a pretty robust GI tract but watching that video and listening to some of you people made me pretty much physically SICK!

Just a couple of closing observations:

  • You who think that you’re getting short-changed by finding that class sizes are being increased or classes merged and the number of classes reduced have no basis on which to complain. In the Superintendent’s budget presentation at the May 1 board of education meeting there was nothing said about not reducing the number of classes or increasing class size. In fact, those were options that were being considered as austerity measures, and no statement was made that they were somehow connected with a defeated budget nor that they would not happen if the budget were accepted by the vote. The superintendent, in fact, opened her presentation by stating that the budget is a “financial roadmap” but that the “road is uncertain.”
  • The 2012-13 budget was NOT accepted unanimously by all board members at the April 17 board meeting! Be clear on that point. So don’t go lumping the entire board into one box and don’t attack the very board member(s) who opposed the budget. The ones you need to go after are the members of the teachers’ clique on the board who voted to accept the 2012-13 budget and put it on the ballot (H. Engel (teacher and husband of a teacher), J. Latter (husband of teacher), J. O’Connor (wife of teacher and whose tenure she voted to approve), T. Traver (evil twin of J. O’Connor), A. Whalen (retired teacher)) and those in the community who did everything conceivable to get you to vote YES!
  • If I’m not mistaken, those of you who are now complaining about class sizes and class reductions are the very ones who voted YES! You jumped on the propaganda wagon and sucked up all the pretty, soppy slogans, and condemned those of us who were urging caution and prudence! You don’t present a very pretty or happy picture now in the video, especially you Ms Hommel…you seem a bit unhappy, if you’ll allow us the observation.
  • Did any of you read your dear teachers association’s  Memorandum of Agreement, written by your double-dipping atheist darling Matt Miller? Did any of you listen to the Superintendent’s budget presentation? Most of you agreed to it all with your vote. The actual promise made in the Superintendent’s presentation was: No reduction that impacts students or programs, and jobs were protected. Nothing more. In fact, she actually outlined possible austerity measures. Go back and review the video; it’s still available on line. It is purely ignorant and baseless to argue that a modest increase in class size will adversely affect students. So Shut Up! It’s your behavior that’s adversely affecting the students!
  • The Superintendent emphasized that to make things work the district needed the help of the community. So far that’s not happened. All the district has gotten has been complaints and insults. And all the abuse is coming from the YES! voters. Funny, that. The same people urging consensus and collaboration before the vote are still appealing to the trouble makers to stop the infighting, make peace, and work together. But there’s still so much unhappiness. That may be because certain of those people who before the vote urged acceptance of the budget are the same ones who after the vote  have been very busy crucifying others and creating all sorts of lunatic distractions and chaos. But they’re a bunch of nut cakes! Why aren’t the rest of you getting your heads together and getting the real work done? Let the Coeymanazis and the Deluca Losers Club do their looney tunes. They’ll soon fizzle if you learn to ignore and shun them. You don’t have to dance to their tune! Even if you have made your bed and your neighbor’s bed by voting Yes! you don’t have to be so damned disgruntled. You don’t have to dance to the Coeymanazi tune!
  • And stop being so damned complacent. You don’t have to give a standing ovation for Cathy Long Deluca’s proposal of a Bottle Campaign!

    Be Bad! Be Bad, Little Monkey!

    Most of you just voted to accept a more than $41 million school budget with a 6.8% tax increase and now they want you to go out and pick up bottles to support programs you still want to keep!? At 5 cents a bottle…Good Lord! Did you all flunk math!?! Tell Cathy Deluca to pick up her own damned bottles, cash them in, and write a check. You have to take a third job to pay your school taxes, and she wants you to pick up bottles! You’ll be doing that soon enough just to put food on the table! Has she no shame? (She doesn’t, we know that!) Or maybe Deluca Public Affairs can help out. Or maybe Jerry Deluca can use his “political connections” with the DEC to get some help for the Bottle Campaign. “Come little monkeys, my pets, let’s collect bottles!” Our advice: Be bad, little monkeys, be very bad! Tell her where to stick her bottles!

There are some real problems and you’re not dealing with them:

  • Get the loonies off the board of education (luckily Traver and O’Connor are soon to leave). Don’t wait til the last minute. Start looking for intelligent, honest candidates to run (No teachers or teachers relatives, please! Your love affairs with teachers has caused enough problems already.). Protect and support the good ones you have on the board.
  • Deal with the bullying in the schools, especially the RCS High School. If you don’t there’s going to be a rash of lawsuits! There’s the Dignity Act now to deal with, and it’s going to open a number of cans of worms. You wait and see!
  • If you feel you have a gripe, there’s FERPA, The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. (Read more about FERPA at Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act).
  • There’s too much power and too little accountability. Teachers and coaches have a long history of abuse. Administrators have a long history of brushing off parents and concerned residents. Make them accountable.
  • Stop being SHEEPLE! One of the major reasons this community is in the dire straits its now in is because too many of you have been sitting back, riding the waves, and delegating your power and rights. The police and courts are corrupt because you let them become corrupt. Clean them up. If you don’t like the corrupt power structure that’s been in the community and operating  behind the scenes for more than 30 years, boot them out. We’ll be telling you who they are in future articles.
  • Most importantly stop being led around by your nose rings and spoon fed by the mouthiest and loudest cows in the community, and get the facts. That means not relying on the crappola that sells newspapers but doesn’t educate you, like the Times Union (a.k.a. Times Useless) that rag tears down and destroys more than it has ever built in the past 25 years. Its journalism stinks. Unless you make the local rags more reliable and less beholding to their drinking buddies (Ravena Halfway House crowd) you’ll never know the truth! It’s been legend for years that the local politicos and godfathers get to read the Ravena News Herald before it goes to print and decide what goes in and what goes out! Maybe legend but all legend is based on some truth! Collect the news yourselves! Make sure it gets into print. Or don’t subscribe or cancel your subscription to make your voice heard!
  • Complain! Comment! Compliment good work! Reward good! Complain and then compliment and reward; don’t just be negative!
  • And, of course, READ THIS BLOG 😉
  • And the next time you recite the Pledge of Allegiance, think about what you’re saying and what it means; then, in your moment of silent reflection, think of how you can make things work in your community, one community under God!

    Stop Being Village Idiots!
