Coeymans town board member

Tuesday, October 14: Let Your Voices Be Heard!

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, Participate in Your Democracy!
Don’t Waste His Sacrifice! Don’t Waste Your Freedoms!
 

 

Your Elected Officials Try To Exclude You From Participation

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!

On Tuesday, October 14, 2014 Both the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk board of education meeting and the Coeymans town board meeting are both taking place at 7:00 p.m. Pretty stupid, right.

Why you need to be there, and you should have the opportunity to be at both:

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

RCS high-school principal Tom DiAcetis, Superintendant Alan McCartney’s 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?) must attend the RCS board of education meeting on Tuesday October 14, at 7 p.m. at the A.W. Becker elementary school. You must 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 will not be tolerated. Demand the resignation of Tom DiAcetis and Alan McCartney. Denounce the RCS board of education for their anti- military bias. Don’t take any prisoners and don’t accept their mealy-mouthed, pablum-puking lies and stupid excuses. Don’t let them off the hook this time. They’re accountable so make them accountable. NOW!

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 need to be held accountable and both need to proactively investigate the RCS scandal perps, DiAcetis and McCarntney, and both need 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. Question: Did he do what he promised to do, or did he dishonor his office, his district and his uniform? Same should be asked of Paul Tonko!

The Town of Coeymans town board is meeting at the same time, on Tuesday, October 14, 2014, at 7 p.m., in the Coeymans town hall. Anyone who is not at the RCS board of education meeting should make every effort to be at the Coeymans town hall meeting. You need to find out about the pending lawsuits challenging the half-baked rezoning done by the town of Coeymans (started when Tom Dolan, Tom Boehm and Dawn Rogers had the majority on the town board. Don’t let them fool you into thinking it was all done by Flach and his new majority, like they’re trying to do!)

 "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 should not be honored by the town of Coeymans for his dishonorable conduct and his selfish, irresponsible abandonment of his post. 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 has 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.)

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. 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.)

No fatalities. YET!

No fatalities. YET!

Again, we 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.

We also want to know about all the jobs that were promised. 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 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.

That’s why you have 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 need your help. Tell them what you want and Get the Facts!

We suggest you make a couple of phone calls, send a couple of e-mails. Get your family, friends, neighbors activated and attend one of the meetings or organize yourselves so that some of you attend one and the others attend the other meeting. Show your elected officials that you can shake things up and put their feet to the fire, so they do what’s best for US!

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.

Stupidity, Ignorance, Corruption: Do you know the difference? Faith Plaza is Sinking!

Some readers have called us pessimists and they’re dead wrong. You see, we’re actually realists, because we see things as they are, make no excuses, and ask Why?

That requires us to be able to differentiate among stupidity, ignorance, corruption and plain old crookedness; that’s something most Ravena-Coeymans- New Baltimore locals don’t seem to be able to get a handle on. So we’re going to provide a couple of illustrations to help those of you along, who don’t quite have a grasp on realism.

A number of years ago, during the reign of terror under former Ravena mayor Bailey, the Flachs purchased the marshland on which Faith Plaza was built. No doubt the entire business deal was crooked because not only was mayor Bailey involved but local shyster John Biscone, father of the current Ravena shyster, Michael Biscone, was also involved. So the Flachs lay down cold hard cash, get the property, and somehow manage to get approval to build on the marshland property that served as a catch basin for drainage from the streams and runoff. The deal to let the Flachs get the property and develop it was stupid and corrupt. Building on the marshland was stupid and ignorant. Now, anyone with eyes to see, can see that the parking lot is sinking. It’s probably only a matter of time until we read about the sinkhole and how many cars got swallowed up.

That’s one of the reasons why Ravena and Coeymans basements and cellars are cesspools of flooding water. Ask the brilliant engineers of Flach & Company why that is. You may also want to ask where the Department of Environmental Conservation was when all of this is happening? But then, just as in the case of the Conrad-Biscone involvement in the case of the disappearing creek on Camille Drive in Ravena, when the right hands are padded, the Department of Environmental Conservation looks for other victims to harrass. After all, it distracts the public’s attention from the real criminals and the real violations.


A Sinkhole

A Sinkhole

 Sinkhole Facts — Warning Signs

Sinkholes form when water dissolves minerals in the bedrock or in the sublayers of the ground leaving the structures on top of the ground sitting precariously on loose soil that can quickly wash away.

If a sinkhole is in the process of forming the structures on top of it can give a hint to its existence: for example, slumping or sagging areas in a parking lot or road, and trees that start to lean. More subtle signs can include doors and windows that don’t close properly.

Heavy rains can caus the collapse of a sinkhole that had been slowly forming earlier. When rainfall collects in an area where water previously did not collect, that is another sign that the land is subsiding.


Here’s another example from recent local history: A local man is growing a crop of marihuana plants in his home. That’s stupid. The Coeymans police get a tip from a local druggie that the guy has an illegal weapon in his home, and the Coeymans police go to a local jackass town justice, Mr Dardiani, and get an illegal search warrant. That’s stupid and ignorant. The Coeymans police intimidate the guy’s minor kid and interrogate him at the RCS high school. That’s stupid, ignorant, and very likely illegal in some important respects. The Coeymans police enforce the search warrant and forcibly enter the guys home but don’t find the illegal weapon but find the pot crop. That’s just plain lucky. The Coeymans police with the help of a now defeated Coeymans town board member and others (Tom Dolan, Tom Boehm, Dawn Rogers) exaggerate the entire thing to get press just before the elections. That’s stupid and corruptBoehm and Rogers lose the election. Dolan looks stupid, and loses not only elections for the Democraps but loses all credibility. That’s brilliant!

Bridge to reroute port traffic away from local roads”, a report by Bryan Rowzee that appeared in the June 5, 2014, issue of the Ravena News Herald is another case in support of our subject.

Mr Rowzee continues his typical boot-licking dog-and-pony act by attempting to misinform and befuddle the readers of the Ravena Rag by putting a falsely positive and unrealistic slant on the Carver Companies, Port of Coeymans and Coeymans Industrial Park plans to take over a portion of Riverview Drive for their own use, and to build a private bridge, intended to connect the Riverview Drive with the Port of Coeymans and the Coeymans Industrial Park (all Carver properties). Unfortunately, Mr Rowzee again gets sucked into reporting only what the special interests want him to write and not what serves the public’s interest. Here’s why:

No one in the Town of Coeymans or the Village of Ravena seems to get it! The basic problem is the fact that our roads were never constructed to handle the heavy truck traffic at all. That’s the problem. The braniacs in town and village hall don’t seem to have eyes in their heads or the sense to realize that the roads are being devastated because they were never built to accommodate the huge trucks of today!

Contracy to Ravena mayor Misuraca’s assessment of why Ravena’s water mains are constantly rupturing (Misuraca seems to put all the blame on the fact that they’re old), Moose the Mayor for some reason has completely ignored and overlooked the fact that trucks weighing multiple tons traveling over the village streets create such vibrations that they literally destroy the water conduits over which they travel! Old may be part of the problem but it’s not the complete story, Mr Mayor Moose! Rome Italy is still using water mains that were built by the Romans more than 2000 years ago and they, sir, are old! But Rome doesn’t have trucks weighing dozens of tons running over them dozens of times a day, either. The village of Ravena does!

Solution: Reduce the heavy truck traffic running through Ravena all day long. The village streets were never meant for such traffic. At some point (real soon) you may want to start thinking like a mayor with an understanding ot fhe complete picture, too.

The Bridge to Oblivion

The Bridge to Oblivion

The Bridge to Oblivion

Back to the Carver Controversy: If it weren’t a sure sign that something was amiss when the town of Coeymans rushed the zoning changes through. If it weren’t a surer sign that something was crooked when the re-zoning was declared illegal. And if it weren’t a sure sign that something was getting even more crooked when the old bait-and-switch line was used, “There’ll be a bunch of new jobs created.” Yeah! That’s what we heard when they put up the Athens generating plant. Horse apples!

Readers: Use your God-given common sense, your familiarity with the lay of the land, and your recent experience. Here we have monster trucks now coming in and out of Riverview, an area that was never intended for such traffic but that’s moot. They’re there and that’s the bad news. The good news, well, almost good, is that at least by the time you get to the bridge over the Coeymans creek  you can clearly see them pulling out in front of you, and you can take evasive action. (That’s not true when they are coming down the hill and entering 144 from Ravena Main Street/Church Street. That’s a death trap!)

The planned route is going to be even more problematic. Entering Coeymans from the North, we approach at about 55 mph, see a 30 mph sign going into the curve, but you don’t see beyond the first 100-200 feet. In that very same curve is the entrance to the Port of Coeymans, the very place where the Coeymans cops used to — still do — wait in ambush for unwary drivers who don’t reduce their speed to 30 mph by the time they reach that point. That was great for the cops because the curve in the road provided excellent cover, and the short distance between the transition from 55 to 30 mph required some quick motor skills going into the curve. (Visit Stopping Distances to learn more.)

Well, that’s exactly where we undertand the Carver bridge will open up and cross 144. And they’ll have two lanes, apparently one lane crossing in either direction. Ladies and gentlemen, dear readers, the only ones who are going to benefit from this arrangement are Carver Laraway and Babcock Funeral Home.

Truck vs. Car Truck Wins

Truck vs. Car
Truck Wins

The current situation is already dire. Anyone driving along SR 144 both in the Hamlet of Coeymans and just beyond the Lafarge crossing — that very crossing should be a glaring example of what to expect if Laraway puts in another heavy truck crossing just down the road, in Coeymans—has surely experienced the trucks pulling out of the so-called Port and putting you at risk of life and limb. They just pull out. Period. No one seems to care that they have to share the road with you.

But it’s worse still. Not only to they just pull out in front of you, they don’t have the sense to wait until smaller, faster traffic passes and they can then pull out and travel at 20 mph for the first couple of miles, reaching 30 mph in about 2 miles, maybe 40 mph in about 5 miles. They’re in a real hurry to get nowhere! In the meantime, they’re trying to cream you and leave your kids orphans.

But it does get worse still. There’s the dust! If the trucks don’t get you, the dust will! The trucks are raising mountains of dust not only in the port itself but even once they are on SR 144. Here are just some for-instances:

  • Visibility. On a sunny, dry day, the dust clouds create a zero visibility situation. That’s very dangerous, especially when you think that other trucks are entering from one of the other entrances/exits to the port or from Lafarge.
  • Your car’s air filter. Travel SR 144 a couple of times a day, driving throught those dust clouds, and just think about how often you’re going to have to change your cars air filter. Only Nappa wins on this point.
  • How often to you wash your car now? Well drive down SR144 during the hours the trucks are in operation and you can pretty much double those washings. And think about the damage to the paint job with all those tiny sandpaper particles grinding away at it. Only Flach’s carwash is a winner on this point.
  • And your clothes? Do you think that when you walk, drive or ride in the area where the wind is carrying all that dust and dropping it on your community that your clothes or your furnishings are going to be spared. Think again! Here’s were Flach and his laudramat and drycleaning business are going to make a killing, too.
  • But the worst is yet to come. Think of your lungs! It’s bad enough when you can avoid driving on SR 144 and avoid the dust clouds and the hazardous drivers of those heavy trucks but the large particles are not the culprits in serious lung diseases caused by airborne dust. It’s the very small particles that lodge in the lungs and cause serious lung diseases, or aggravate the lung diseases people are already suffering. Airborne dust contains not only particles that can cause restrictive and obstructive lung diseases, aggravate allergies, those dusts also contain toxins and heavy metals that are deadly. Dear readers, Obamacare isn’t going to help you here. You’d better invest in high-efficiency particle filter face masks—or stock up on oxygen canisters. Albany Medical Center and its satellite clinics are going to make a bundle on this baby.
  • Our Homeland. We’ll just round this brief discussion off with a final note on our beautiful Hudson Valley, the lush green of our summers, the beautiful air from the foothills of the Catskills—Kiss it all goodby thanks to the total stupidity, ignorance and corruption of our local elected officials. They’ve sold our health and our homes for Judas’ silver, and they’re after our health, too!

So, dear readers, before you lick up Mr Bryan Rowzee’s boot-licking reports and stooge Andrea Colby’s propaganda, and before you swallow Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach’s ignorant and uninformed pablum, lend an ear to concerned and serious local residents like Elyse Kunz and Barbara Heinzen, they’re being realistic in condemning this ill-fated and corrupt plan to destroy not only the character of the hamlet and the village, but threaten our very lives and health, while destroying irreplaceable habitat. And for what? To fill the pockets of the few! To cow to false and unrealistic promises of prosperity? We’ve heard it all before and we’ve suffered immensely for trusting them.

Stop them NOW before it’s too late.

Mr Bryan Rowzee reported in that same issue of the Ravena News Herald on “Should backyard chickens be allowed in Ravena?” Now that’s certainly a monumental concern when compared to the Carver Laraway destruction projects. Maybe Mr Rowzee should restrict his writing to discussions of backyard chickens. The Ravena News Herald gave the chickens as much space in the June 5th issue of the Ravena Rag as it did to the Bridge scandal. What does that tell you?

Just When You Start to Think that the Coeymans Town Council has the Opportunity to Shine…

 Goes to Peter Masti Town of Coeymans Boardmember

Goes to
Peter Masti
Town of Coeymans Boardmember

Town of Coeymans Sitting Board Member, Peter Masti, Likes to Write Letters to the Editor. Unfortunately for Masti, They Get Published.

You have four church-goin’ members of the Coeymans Town Council assailing Coeymans Republican Committee chairwoman Barbara Cumm in her own home—after she manages to get them elected to the board—; then you have Mr George Langdon, newly elected to the Coeymans Town Board but not satisfied with being elected, he has his greedy eye on the Coeymans Republican Committee chairmanship besides (that’s not going to happen)—and he doesn’t seem to want to wait until the present long-time chairwoman Mrs Barbara Cumm hands over the baton—; and then you have dear Kenny Burns who seems to think that Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca is a “father figure.” Is there any hope for Coeymans?

And just when you start to think that some of the worst parasites have been voted off the Coeymans Town Council—Yes, we’re referring to Tom Boehm and Dawn Rogers; Tom Dolan’s next, of course—Mr Peter Masti, sitting member of the Coeymans Town Council, pens another idiotic letter to the editor, which the even more idiotic Ravena News Herald prints.

Mr Masti Insists on Publishing His Pitiful Ignorance…

Please, dear readers, don’t jump to conclusions. We are not proposing censorship nor curtailing free speech. What we are proposing is that a sitting elected official should be especially responsible, prudent and careful when publishing his opinion in the local media.  We are proposing that he should have his facts straight and correct, at the very least. We must hold our elected officials to a higher standard than we do the woman- or man-on-the-street. When our elected officials publish something in the public media, it is not just simply “opinion” but it takes on an entirely different character, it becomes public information, public education.

We read the letters to the editor and we have read Mr Masti’s occasional diatribes. For example, last December 19th (2013), Mr Masti penned a letter-to-the-editor of the Ravena News Herald. We read that letter and it raised our eyebrows as it should have done for many others. In that letter, Mr Masti rants about Santa Claus, “‘X-ing” out Christ in Christmas and Mr Masti’s own “faith in Christ.” Here’s some of what Masti writes:

“The very holiday of Christmas proclaims Christ in its name and very existence. I laugh when I see Xmas instead of Christmas. How can you  X” out Christ and still have Christmas?…I do not force my faith in Christ on others. I do not think that Christians should ever do that, but neither should we be afraid to share that faith with others.”

So what’s the problem? You may well ask. Mr Masti is proclaiming his pitiful ignorance in published letter-to-the-editor, and by so doing is making a mockery of his “faith in Christ,” and his own Christian education. Had Mr Masti done any homework at all, he would have quickly found out that the “X” in Xmas is not “X”-ing out, or deleting, or removing Christ from Christmas. Not at all! Mr Masti’s pitiful ignorance shines brightly, as does his ignorance of Christian tradition. In fact, the “X” in Xmas represents a long Christian tradition of abbreviating sacred names in manuscripts and writing. In fact, the “X” in Xmas has its origins in Biblical Greek, and is actually the Greek letter χ (chi), the first letter of the Greek word Χριστός, Christós, meaning ‘anointed’. The translation of the Hebrew word Mašíaḥ (messiah) as Χριστός (Christós) in the Greek Septuagint became the accepted Christian designation and title of Jesus of Nazareth. Similarly, in many Christian manuscripts we find the name Christ represented by a “” (a cross), as in mas. Mr Masti is absolutely incorrect in his News Herald rant and merely exposes his ignorance of Christian tradition.

Mr Masti apparently has too much time on his hands. Obviously, his nursing job is not keeping him busy, nor is the work of being a town of Coeymans town board member, either. In this past week’s Ravena News Herald we again had the amusement and questionable pleasure of more of Mr Masti’s ignorance. In the Ravena News Herald of February 6, 2014, in a letter to the editor, Mr Masti writes:

“In talking with some people this past week, I was told that some of my decision making was being influenced by the “Smallbany blogger”. I quite curtly informed them that it was not.

“When I first got into office I was exposed to this “information source”. I use the word ‘exposed’ because that is what I felt. It read like an X-rated small town soap opera and I never even finished what I saw before me due to its format and language! When I write my letters I give the facts as best I know them, where I received these facts, and then I sign what I have written. This “Smallbany” person does not sign and leaves one unable to find out where he gets his information. I also try to share my information in a civil form and not in some vile and vulgar format that would turn myself and I am sure many others away.”

Now the initial problem we have with this snippet from Mr Masti’s letter-to-the-editor is that Mr Masti contradicts himself. Furthermore, Mr Masti gives us reason to believe he is ignorant of what was and is going on in Coeymans town hall. Shouldn’t he know what’s going on there?

Mr Masti also reveals his mediocre mental processing when he needs to know who is writing this blog. Mr Masti seems to loose sight of the fact that this blog’s title is “Smallbany” not “About Me.” Mr Masti does not seem to recognize the fact that it is the factual content of this blog that matters, not the author or authors. Masti gets stuck on the format, the language and doesn’t even address the content. But the events and facts reported in this blog are right under Masti’s nose! (Isn’t Mr Masti aware that the Coeymanazi money-pit police department is just downstairs? Isn’t Masti aware of the Notices of Claim filed against the Coeymans Police Department? Doesn’t Masti sign off on the Coeymans police department budget?)

What’s even worse is that Mr Masti appears to be saying he is familiar with this blog and its contents enough to make certain decisions about it. But Wait! Doesn’t he seem to be saying in his letter to the editor that he read only one article on this blog and didn’t even finish that one? Mr Masti appears to be double-talking us.

Does Mr Masti sweat such bullets when he reads a Albany Times Union or a Ravena News Herald article that is “unsigned” or if he doesn’t know where they obtained their biased and generally inaccurate information?

What’s worse is that Masti writes that the blog “leaves one unable to find out where he gets his information.” That’s absolutely stupid of Masti because we provide quotes, sources, pictures. We reproduced the source documents and provide them for reading and download. We frequently state that the information is obtained directly from the town of Coeymans or village Ravena, or elsewhere under the provisions of the New York State Freedom of Information Law (F.O.I.L.). If Mast were even half-aware of what’s going on in Coeymans town hall, he’d at least recognize some of the information we publish! It comes straight from Coeymans town board minutes or documents! Wake up Masti!

Masti’s ignorance is further documented when he writes: “I also try to share my information in a civil form and not in some vile and vulgar format that would turn myself and I am sure many others away.” The information Mr Masti has so far shared has been “civil,” that we admit. But it has been incorrect or wrong. Mr Masti’s mediocrity is underscored when he writes that the information provided on this blog is “vile and vulgar.” That statement would make the impression that Mr Masti is familiar with this blog and its contents to be able to make such a sweeping statement. But how can that be if Mr Masti also writes: “I  never even finished what I saw before me due to its format and language,” when Masti describes his first experience of the blog. He never finished but he has an opinion. Is that the kind of person Coeymans needs or wants on the town of Coeymans town council?

 The most glaringly stupid statement Masti makes is that the “vile and vulgar format would turn myself [Masti] and I [Masti] am sure man others away.” Quite the contrary, Mr Masti, this blog is “vile and vulgar” only in your petty bigoted little mind. In fact, the information provided on this blog is lauded as very important to the community, your own Ravena-Coeymans community, by the many readers in the Ravena-Coeymans community and even worldwide! We have attracted almost 200,000 readers, Mr Masti! Almost everyone with a computer, a tablet, a smartphone in the town of Coeymans reads this blog, Mr Masti! Even YOU, Mr Masti!

Mr Peter Masti, you are an ignorant so-called Christian, and we can forgive that. We have no intention of tearing your personal religious beliefs or faith tradition apart. Nor do we intend to enter into a theological presentation, either. But you are, like so many like you, ignorant even of your own declared faith tradition. You should not publicize that; it makes most Christians look bad.

What’s worse, though, is that you are a hypocrite, Mr Masti. And it appears that you are a liar, too. Put all of that together and we have a very nasty mess: An ignorant, hypocritical liar who calls himself a Christian. Shame on you! That’s not our opinion, Mr Masti. That conclusion comes directly from a fair analysis of your letter-to-the-editor, and anyone with a third-grade reading ability can determine that fact for him or herself.

In conclusion, Mr Masti: The fact that to “some people” with whom you were chatting felt that your decision making was influenced by this blog speaks volumes. Firstly, for all the negative statements you make about this blog, it seems that your decisions have a lot in common with what we write on this blog. Why else would “some people” feel that your decision making was influenced by this blog? How do you explain that Mr Masti?

Furthermore, you write that you didn’t get past your initial contact with this blog; in fact, you write, “I never even finished what I saw before me due to its format and language!” So, Mr Masti, how can you say with certainty that your decision making wasn’t influenced by the “Smallbany blogger?” Either you know for certain or you don’t know. Which is it, Mr Masti? And if you know for certain that your decision making was not influenced by the blog, you’d have to know which decisions and which blog information. Right? That would mean that you’d have to know what’s on this blog. If you don’t know what’s on this blog, it’s impossible for you to “curtly inform them” that your decision making was not influenced by this blog. You can’t have it both ways, Mr Masti. You do see where we’re having some problems with your credibility, Mr Masti, don’t you?

Finally, you claim that you are “unable to find out where he [the blogger] gets his information.” Well, Mr Masti, if you are in the privileged position as an elected public official in the capacity of a Coeymans town council member, you should be expected to know where the information came from. You do read your town documents, publications, the local media, etc., don’t you, Mr Masti? You do know what a F.O.I.L. is, don’t you, Mr Masti. Certainly, Mr Masti, when we publish information on the town of Coeymans you must recognize it, don’t you Mr Masti?

Mr Masti: After all is said and done we have a question: What in hell are you doing when you’re sitting in executive session, during a town of Coeymans board meeting, or as a town board member? It seems our readers are better informed than you are!

What’s worse, though, is that you are a hypocrite, Mr Masti. And it appears that you are a liar, too. Put all of that together and we have a very nasty mess: An ignorant, hypocritical liar. Our advice to you, Mr Masti: Stop writing letters to the editor. They only confirm our opinion of you.

The truth is: Peter Masti got caught with his pants down around his ankles when “some people” recognized that his decision making is influenced by this blog. Masti was apparently embarassed when he got called on that fact and now is trying to distance himself from us. Peter Masti admits in his own letter to the editor that “some people” somehow thought his decision making was very similar to this blog and simply asked him about it. Now Peter Masti is peeing all over himself trying to claim that we don’t influence him. Even if he were to be truthful and say that he reads this blog and gets some information from it. What harm would that do? Shows he’d be up to snuff on what’s going on in his community, doesn’t it? We know you read this blog, Petey. Why lie about it, Petey?

Final Results of the “Tell Us What You Think” Poll

After running the “Tell Us What You Think” Poll for 6 Weeks
The Responses Don’t Look Good for the Coeymans Police Department
Or for Mayor John T. Bruno and His Mafia Mob in Ravena Village Hall!

Yer History! Bruno Bunch and Coeymans PD Given Thumbs Down in Poll

Yer History!
Bruno-Bunch and Coeymans PD Given Thumbs Down in Poll.
Cathy Deluca’s Playpen, the Ravena Fitness Center, Also Gets a Bashing.

Residents Give Thumbs Down for Coeymans P.D. and Ravena Mayor John T. Bruno!!!

Because of the holidays we left the “Tell Us What You Think” poll up for an additional 2 weeks, a total of 6 weeks, during which residents could share what they thought on a number of local issues. In the first 24 hours of the poll residents were very energetic in responding and we received 278 responses in those first 24 hours. At 72 hours we already had 417 responses, and by the third week the poll had received 517 responses. The holidays distracted many people and the final two weeks of the poll yielded a final total of 656 responses. That’s about 10% of the entire population of Coeymans and about 20% of the entire population of New Baltimore in rough comparison. According to the locations reported by responders, though, 80% of responses came from the Ravena-Coeymans area and about 14% came from New Baltimore area. The remaining approximately 6% of responses were likely from the town of Bethlehem, Selkirk, Feura Bush, etc. Because the responses were anonymous there’s no way to tell for sure.

Eliminate the Coeymans Police Department and Leave Law enforcement to the Albany County Sheriff and the NYS Police…

Large Majority of Residents Say: Get Rid of the Coeymans P.D.!

Large Majority (76%) of Residents Say: Get Rid of the Coeymans P.D.!

The majority (76%) of Ravena-Coeymans residents responding to the poll questions about the Coeymans police department think that law enforcement in Coeymans should be provided by the Albany County Sheriff and the New York State Police. A very similar majority (75%) say that the Coeymans police department should be eliminated outright. The RCS CSD superintendent Alan R. McCartney and his teacher-loaded board of education put Coeymans police in our RCS schools but 67% of residents responding to the poll want the police out of our schools. and less than 1-out-of-five respondents think we need the police in our schools. The message that residents are sending is clear: a high majority of residents responding to the poll do not want the Coeymans police department in our communities and would rather have the Albany County Sheriff’s deputies and the NYS police handling law enforcement in our communities. (This is a no-brainer for residents in the Town of New Baltimore who are already being served perfectly well by the Greene County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police!)

The Majority of Respondents Say NO! to Mayor John T. Bruno and His Crew of Critters

biz-woman-thumbs-down Ravena-Coeymans residents who responded on the survey clearly have had enough of the Bruno-machine in Ravena and the surrounding area. 66% of residents want “No more Bruno, Warner, Case, Bailey, Persico in Ravena.” That’s a very encouraging figure because if Ravena mayor John T. Bruno were to run today, he’d lose by a crushing landslide. Marty Case was the warning of Bruno’s unpopularity (but Case won his seat on the Ravena village council only by a margin, so he’s not an undisputed good example of popularity. That’s for certain!) Besides, there’s the unhealthy partnership between John Bruno and Nancy Warner that is like a cancer in Ravena. And then there’s the rift between Bill Bailey, Bruno’s whipping-boy-clown, and mayor John Bruno (But then, mayor John Bruno has no self-respect, how can he respect anyone else?).

A majority of residents (54%) think that Ravena mayor John Bruno should take a hike…a long hike. Those residents feel that Ravena mayor John Bruno should resign and apply for assisted living—in Alaska. But then, even Alaska might be too close for some residents. Only 6% (less than 1 resident in 10) think that mayor John Bruno is doing a good job. That’s really pitiful but those of us who have eyes to see and ears to hear know exactly why so few residents are Bruno supporters. That’s why he has to rely on the incest club and the crooks on the Ravena village payroll to get elected.

Now that we’re on the subject of why mayor John Bruno and his hatchet woman Nancy Warner are so hated, let’s look at two examples in the survey: the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center. These two examples clearly show the character or lack of character of the occupants of Village Hall and their crooked croneys.

And YES! The Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center is now closed, barely after a year of operation, only because Ravena mayor John Bruno, Ravena councilwoman Nancy Warner, and elements of the Coeymans police department made it their personal agenda to make certain it didn’t work. But what they failed to consider in their evil plan was the fact that although the Teen Center is now closed, it remains a living symbol of the Bruno era of negativity and destructiveness, and indifference to the interests of the community. The Teen Center continues alive and well as a symbol, even more powerful than when it was fighting for its life and for local teens and youth! The symbol of the Teen Center and the maltreatment of the RCS Community Library join the long list of Bruno-Warner failures and corruption in Ravena.

$105,000 of Taxpayer Dollars for the Cathy Deluca Playpen, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center

$0 in Support of Ravena Youth and Teens

Even the Fat Lady Gives a Thumbs Down to the Ailing Ravena Health and Fitness Center.
Thanks! Cathy Deluca: Another Faiure!

We’ve already published volumes of truth on the misuse of public funds by the Bruno-Warner-Deluca conspiracy, and how the public was kept out of the discussions. We’ve already pointed out the incestuous relationships between the Bruno village hall and the Coeymans police department, where fatness queen Cathy Deluca’s husband, the corpulent cop Dirty-Hands Jerry parks his double-wide butt (but he’s now allegedly parking buses in the RCS central school district transportation department as a part-time bus driver! How in hell did he finagle that one?) How many jobs are the Ravena-Coeymans insiders going to hog and deprive residents of the opportunity to work? We’ve already reported how Cathy Deluca already closed two privately owned fitness centers and how the Village of Ravena has tried to get her special treatment with the Civil Service Commission so that she gets non-competitive status in a civil service job created for her! But the fact that more than $105,000.00 of Ravena taxpayer dollars were budgeted for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center for insider reasons we all know well does not explain Why? $0 dollars and 0 support was allocated to the youth and teens of Ravena-Coeymans. Nor does it explain why Josephine Biscone-Bruno (Prudential Real Estate) and Robert Fisk, both Ravena village hall insiders, sucked a local philanthropist, Mr Michael Fisher, into taking over the now ugly and empty building at 170 Main Street, Ravena. Nor does it explain Why? after approving the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center Bruno and Warner went on a relentless campaign to bad-mouth the Center and to persecute Ravena youth. It’s all history now because Bruno and Warner and the cowards around them, indirectly assisted by the dolts in Coeymans town hall at the time, with no support from the Coeymanazis in the Coeymans police department (Was it because the kids were going to the Teen Center rather than kissing cop ass on the athletic club? Or was there a murkier, more sinister reason?)

Neglected Teens and Youth

Neglected Teens and Youth

down youth silhouetteIn our survey, 68% of residents responding wanted to “Save the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activities Center” and only 15% felt that Ravena-Coeymans didn’t need the Teen Center. That’s a pretty big difference and when you really think about it, what kind of people would deny the teens a safe and supervised place to go and stay off the streets!?! Another question would be: Where were the 68% when mayor John Bruno, Nancy Warner, and the Coeymans Police were harassing and intimidating the kids when they were at the Teen Center?

It’s heartbreaking but true that Ravena village hall and Coeymans town hall, together with the persecution by the Coeymans police department brought down a great idea but invested absolutely nothing in it. Neither the village of Ravena nor the town of Coeymans invested a single cent in the Teen Center. But Ravena village hall invested an awful lot of time farting around and backstabbing to make sure it disappeared. What did they provide to fill the void? What did they do to give the kids a place to go in the village of Ravena, the hamlet of Coeymans? You know the answer, parents, grandparents. Why don’t you tell the kids why you didn’t open your mouths or your wallets? Shame on you all. But more shame on the 68% who thought that the Teen Center should be saved and didn’t do anything to save it. You could have done that easily with at least 68%. You could have kicked Bruno’s and Warner’s butts but instead you threw the kids in, and got real low to kiss butt. Proud of yourselves?

As for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center residents of Ravena, at least, proved again that all sheep don’t go to slaughter on four legs, some actually walk on two legs. All of Ravena-Coeymans bent over again for another Bruno-Warner quickie and let Cathy Deluca and the Coeymanazis stick it to them, while Bruno, Warner and the Delucas sang all the way to the bank. Why is that? How did that happen, we ask you? How could that have happened when 68% of poll responses think that “the Ravena Health and Fitness Center is an illegal joke”?

thumbs-down young biz guyHow is it possible that (1) the village of Ravena created the Ravena Health and Fitness Center without public inputs and without a feasibility study of the need for such a facility, (2) hired an insider, Cathy Deluca, and friends to run the place, (3) allocated more than $105,000 to run the place, (4) approved $30,000 plus benefits to pay Cathy Deluca, (5) set rules for using the “public place” to exclude anyone under 18 years of age (the very kids who were going to the Teen Center), (6) made the Ravena Health and Fitness Center a “political/private” club by making it very clear that some local residents were unwelcome there, and the list goes on and on! How is that possible when such a large majority, 68% of residents responding to the poll think the Ravena Health and Fitness Club is an “illegal joke”? How is that possible when only 8% of residents responding to the poll think that Ravena needs the Fitness Center. And if 8% of the residents responding think that they need the illegal joke of a so-called Fitness Center, why is it that 0%—YES! You read right: ZERO—are members of the Fitness Center or have a family member who is a member of the Fitness Center.?!?! (That’s about right because whenever we check the parking lot at the Fitness Center it’s pretty empty. And what are the local churches doing with the Fitness Center possibly stealing people away from the church-sponsored programs, like zumba etc.?)

We repeat: 68% of responders think the Ravena Fitness Center is an “illegal joke”; only 8% think we need the Ravena Fitness Center, and 0% of responders are members or have a family member who is a member of the Ravena Fitness Center. So does it really make sense that the village of Ravena gave the RCS Community Library such a hard time and evicted the library for the space for the Fitness Center? Does it really make sense to have paid more than $40,000 of taxpayer money to purchase the used fitness center equipment from insider Robert “Bob” Fisk? Does it really make sense to have allocated more than $105,000 of taxpayer money to fund the Fitness Center? Is it really fair that a local insider, Cathy Deluca, should have been appointed to run the place after already running two fitness centers to failure? And does it make sense to appoint Cathy Deluca, an insider and close friend of Bruno and Warner, to be director to the tune of more than $30,000 plus benefits? Apparently the majority of aware readers, 68% percent of you don’t think so! So what did you or are you going to do about it?

That brings us to a very revealing part of this report: In the local general elections this past November 5, 2013, voters finally took a firm stand on bad government and crooked elected officials. In Coeymans voters gave Tom “Bigmouth” Boehm and Dawn “Dizzy” Rogers their walking papers. They affirmed their trust in Supervisor Stephen Flach and rejected Ravena mayor John Bruno’s puppet, Martin “Marty” Case. Coeymans is safe.

In addition, by a huge margin—not unexpected, of course—voters rejected the idiotic candidacy of Dawn Maddage, who was totally unknown and unqualified for the Coeymans Town Clerk position. As expected, the popular, experienced, respected Diane Millious was re-elected. That must have been a crushing disappointment for sitting town democrat councilman Thomas E. “Tom” Dolan, who really screwed up the democratic tickets, after having suffered a pitiful defeat in his own bid for a NYS senate seat. Dolan chairs the local democrat committee—The question is: How much longer is the dork going to be allowed to corrupt local politics and get away with it. Even a penile implant wouldn’t keep his approval ratings up!

New Arrival Baby 2014 Gives a Thumbs Down to Ravena Regime!

New Arrival Baby 2014 Gives a Thumbs Down to Ravena Regime!

2014 is an election year for the village of Ravena. The writing on the wall indicates that there’s going to be a big change in Ravena, too. That is, only if voters don’t allow the corruption and favoritism to take the vote away from the voters.

Think of it this way: 85% of residents responding to the poll reside in the village of Ravena or Coeymans. 80% of respondents report that they voted in the November 2013 elections. Do the math. Look at the trends in the respondents’ responses. Now figure out what direction the village of Ravena and other local communities are going to go.

Say what you will about this blog, the numbers and the responses speak for themselves. 82% (with a high of 97%) of responders say that they “get more information from this blog than from local news media.” We’d take that one step further and say that local residents get more true information on this blog than they’ll ever get from local news media. That’s common knowledge., but 72% of responders say that they rely on this blog for truthful information about the community. 79% of responders say that this blog is an important community resource. 75% of responders say that they would “gladly do business with a business that supports this blog.” That’s good to know because although we have never asked for financial support of our work, and work it is, we may need to offer advertising slots to cover expenses. After all, we still have to pay $0.25 a page for documents FOILED from local government and $10.00 for every CD containing recorded minutes, police interviews, or public meetings. It all adds up to a tidy sum. Our time and gas is also not subsidized by any additional income.

All good has a negative side to it and to be complete we have to report at a whopping 17% of responders think this blog is useless. Makes you wonder why they even bother reading it, let alone take the time to respond to one of its polls. Go figure!

100% of residents responding in the poll said that they answered the poll questions honestly and seriously. We believe that and thank all 656 responses for taking the time to answer our questions and to let the community know what such a large number of residents representative of our community are thinking.

 The Good News

As of January 1st, both the Town of Coeymans (Albany County) and the Town of New Baltimore (Greene County) now have new leadership and new majorities. It looks very good for those two towns, and our hope is that they will put their heads together, and perhaps even involve the Town of Coxsackie (Greene County), to stop the bickering and stalemates and get things done in the interest of the residents and taxpayers of those communities. We hope that the voters in the Village of Ravena (Town of Coxsackie, Albany County) will see the light at the end of the long dark tunnel that the former town councils and the present village government has painted very, very dark, indeed. We hope that the voters in the Village of Ravena, supported by their neighbors in the Hamlet of Coeymans will fumigate village hall on Election Day 2014, get rid of the cockroach infestation there now, and finally install a village team that will not badmouth and fingerpoint but will foster and nurture inter-community cooperation. Once that is done, intercommunity groups and action can step in and take the Bruno-Warner ghost town and resucitate it to become a colorful, inviting,vibrant community with a real heartbeat. The new administration in New Baltimore can now take charge and put New Baltimore on the map not as a community that digs up its natural treasures and buries its traditions, but one that truly serves its residents, fosters neighborliness, and preserves the traditional values of work, faith, fairness, family and loyalty. The Town of Coeymans can come a long way by cleaning up its own corruption now that some of the vermin have been removed from the community pantry. But there’s much work ahead and real smart governing and negotiation that has to be done soon before the enthusiasm wanes, and support for major change recedes. There’s excitement in the air…and true hope in hearts. Don’t disappoint us. After all, this blog is not really about “Thumbs Down” but about “Handshakes” and we and our readers are on the spot to make sure those gestures of friendship, community, and cooperation happen. Please do your part to make 2014 a year of prosperity and positive change!

Make it happen!

Make it happen!

Top Secret: Two Coeyman Cops, Idiots, Really, Suspended

Two Coeymans Police Officers Send Sheriff’s Deputy on A Wild-Goose Chase, Get Suspended

Coeymans Police Department/Albany County Sheriff Keep Public in Dark

Somebody in Town Hall: Turn on the Lights!!!

Somebody in Town Hall:
Turn on the Lights!!!

Seems security isn’t a big thing with former Coeymans Police Department Lieutenant Kerry Thompson, now Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple’s “assistant chief deputy,” after he had been recalled apparently following the incident where Coeymans police officers Danielle Crosier and Peter McKenna got into some mischief on Thompson’s Sheriff’s Department laptop, which Thompson stupidly neglected to secure.

Apparently, the Coeymans police department has so little to do when they’re not executing illegal search warrants issued by short-order-cook town justices or worse, and the cops have so little supervision when they have nothing to do while collecting your taxpayer dollars, that they have to perpetrate criminal activity themselves. So, the allegations go, ex-Coeymans ” deputy chief” and current chief of Coeymans police, Gregory Darlington’s brother-in-law, Kerry Thompson leaves his laptop unsecured and Danielle Crosier and Peter McKenna get the bright idea to play a little joke on the Albany County Sheriff’s Department. They log on Thompson’s laptop that is equipped with C.A.D. or Computer Aided Dispatch, a system you’ll find in most police cruisers these days (see below for more information), and from Thompson’s computer, dispatched an Albany County Deputy on a wild-goose chase. That’s not only ultra-childish, stupid, it’s also a crime even if two idiotic Coeymans cops do it!

Coeymans Police Officers Danielle Crosier and Peter McKenna Dispatched a Sheriff’s Deputy on a Wild-Goose Chase: Big Joke!

Darlington

Darlington

So, why didn’t we hear about this before? Well, we all know that Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington gets away with murder and so do his faves in the department. Why do you think DoDo Darlington put Kerry Thompson, his brother-in-law, on the payroll as his “administrative assistant” for more than $31.00/hr while Thompson was already full-time in the Albany County Sheriff’s Department. Why did Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple allow this, anyway? We also know that Darlington’s wife works in the Albany County D.A.’s office. We also know that the Darlington-Boehm-Rogers-Dolan plan by funning (or running) Michelle Maddage to be Coeymans town clerk was to get Darlington’s wife a part-time job in the Clerk’s office. But voters put a stop to that plan. We also know that Darlington’s plan is to leave the Coeymans police department and join up with his wife in Albany County District Attorney David Soares’ office. Don’t you see the corruption piling up here?

Darlington has been bad news for Coeymans since the sick decision was made to put him in the chief’s office. Once there, he managed to f-up all of former professional chief Scott Giroux’s clean-up and sanitation work in the Coeymans p.d. One of the first stupid moves Darlington did was to re-hire two duds Giroux had fired: Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and Todd Polverelli. (The facts also indicate that Deluca and Polverelli were hired illegally, not in compliance with civil service law. Same applies to Danielle Crosier. How and why was she selected to be the RCS CSD police presence in the high-school? We’d like a statement on that information.) It went downhill from there.

Backward and Downhill

Backward and Downhill

Back to the playful duo Crosier and McKenna. Well, when the perps were found out, Thompson suspended both Crosier and McKenna. But get this: Crosier got only a week’s suspension, while McKenna got a month! Why the discrepancy? You might well ask. Seems the rumor is that Thompson and Crosier had a little thing. So that must have played into Mr Thompson’s real professional and objective evaluation of the seriousness of the crime. But why no criminal charges? Just suspension? With pay? Are the Coeymans police above the law?

Or have we so quickly forgotten just a couple of special treatment cases, like:

  • woman pointing fingerKerry Thompson’s son’s theft and vandalism of campaign signs. Disappeared!
  • How about Kerry Thompson’s other delinquent son (is he the dispatcher at the Coeymans p.d.?) who took down mailboxes while speeding; never charged. Disappeared!
  • Kerry Thompson’s refusal to take a harassment complaint by a local woman (but taking the complaint of the same harasser against a local official and prosecuting it!)
  • Dawn Roger’s daughter’s multiple DUI’s.  Disappeared!
  • Tom Dolan’s son’s drug-related incidents. Disappeared!
  • Harassment charges against Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and Matt Miller. Disappeared!
  • Obstruction of justice charges against DoDo cop Gregory Darlington. Disappeared!
  • Investigations against Cathy Deluca for falsely filing a report. Disappeared!
  • Failure to investigate/obstruction of  justice by Dirty Hands Jerry Deluca  felony charges (Scott Lendin). Disappearied!
  • And many others, still DISAPPEARING

Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple Gets an Egg Facial Courtesy of Darlington, Thompson, Crosier & McKenna

You might also ask where Thompson’s bosses, Apple and Darlington, were when all of this was going on? Well, Darlington probably had his head up his arse as usual, monitoring what’s going on in the town clerk’s office upstairs—or, more likely, he was collecting his paycheck while playing Mr Mom at home. Craig Apple, Albany County Sheriff, was probably trying like hell to figure out how to get Thompson out of the Coeymans police department without coming off with egg all over his face.

So, Thompson’s embarrassed as hell by Crosier and McKenna. Two Coeymans police make asses of themselves, commit a serious crime, and get suspended (McKenna, it seems, just can’t seem to stay out of police trouble. He got fired from the Albany Police only to be hired by that jackass Darlington!). Darlington’s on another planet, as usual. Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca’s off to the side with psycho-cop Ryan Johnson sniggering. This is the Return of the Living Brain-Dead to Coeymans!

OK, Craig & Bill, Come Clean: Are these facts true?

OK, Craig & Bill, Come Clean:
Are these facts true?
Do you think if we citizens or the media call them we’d get the truth?

So what does Craig Apple, Albany County Sheriff, do? Well, he doesn’t waste any time in setting up a plan to get Thompson out of Coeymans real quick. He “promotes” Thompson to a desk job as “assistant chief deputy” in an elaborate dog-and-pony-act at taxpayer expense, so that it looks like he needs Thompson back in the Sheriff’s department to fill this “important” desk job. We reported on this silly smoke-and-mirrors act in our article (click on this link to read it), Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple: Has the Apple Gone Rotten? The whole thing was so obvious only the mind of a law enforcement person would be dull enough to think the public would swallow that rancid oyster.

After that, Kerry Thompson resigns from his position with brother-in-law Darlington and moves back home to the Albany County Sheriff’s Department so that Apple can keep closer tabs on him and keep him out of trouble. It’s absolutely scandalous, incredible that all of this is being paid for by taxpayer dollars!

Why are we kept in the dark?!?

Why are we kept in the dark?!?

This was all discussed, apparently, in a closed-door executive session by the Coeymans town board and kept real hush-hush because it was just before the elections and just before the big Böhm-Darlington-Thompson special press conference on Coeymans’ phony drug busts and the fabricated drug problem. That failed, too, and Boehm and Rogers lost their town board seats. Puts Darlington and the Coeymans police department in a real scary place right now, because Tom Boehm, Tom Dolan  and Dawn Rogers were the only thing separating Darlington and his criminals in uniform from the door and the street! Come January there should be some major changes happening. But the public was unfairly kept in the dark while Darlington, Boehm, Dolan and Rogers were promoting psycho-cop to sergeant, and giving that lunatic a pay raise. Criminals at play, it seems.

Our questions: Why are Crosier and McKenna still in uniform? Why are they still on the payroll of the Coeymans police department? If these facts are true and they did illegally access Thompson’s laptop and did actually send a Sheriff’s deputy on a wild-goose chase, why weren’t criminal charges pressed and a public investigation launched? What right does the Coeymans town board and the Coeymans police department have to keep the public, the taxpaying public in the dark? Why does the generally law-abiding, hard-working, honest resident and taxpayer have to pay for these dregs and then be subject to their abuse, too? Where was the media when all of this was happening? Where is the media NOW?

What right does the Coeymans town board and the Coeymans police department have to keep the public, the taxpaying public in the dark?


What is C.A.D.?

police computer

Computer-aided dispatch, or CAD, is a system used by police and other emergency response dispatchers to log, track and assign calls for service. Once performed with a notebook or laptop  computer, a punch-card and a file cabinet, CAD systems allow duty officers and law enforcement officers to check on for service, respond to calls, input call data and access call history almost instantly. This allows officers to get much-needed information faster and reduces radio traffic. It also allows police supervisors to better monitor their subordinates and manage the work load of the shift.

The CAD is also the system that stores reports, notes and basic information after a call for service is completed.

The Mobile Digital Computer or MDC / Mobile Digital Terminal is the computer program that allows dispatchers and law enforcement officers to communicate between each other in “real-time”.

Basically, dispatch receives a 911/non emergency call requiring Police response. The dispatcher generates a “CAD card/event/case number” and types the information related to the call into their computer. Dispatch “sends” the “call” to the responding Officers “MDC”. The Officer reads the “call card” hits a “key” to show “en route” and then “on scene.” After handling the “call”, the Officer enters whatever pertinent information (could be a two sentence disposition or a full report) and sends the completed “CAD” entry to the main “database”.

Thats the only way we know to explain it, however the system allows MUCH more than just receiving calls, etc, it is also used to “run” registrations,licenses, warrants checks and numerous other LE related “applications”.

The actual “acronym” for different agencies will differ also. We have only heard of the systems being called “CAD”, “MDC (Mobile Digital Computer)” and “MDT (Mobile Data Terminal)”, but we imagine they all work very similarly.

It’s obvious that these systems can be abused by the simple-minded and by criminally minded law enforcement personnel who have other agendas and are willing to break the law and the rules of confidentiality to obtain privileged information. (Right Jerry Deluca?).


Of course, we’d like very much to hear back from anyone in the Coeymans Police Department or the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, or the Coeymans town board with a statement or an explanation for the facts reported here. We would really like to know if any of the facts need to be corrected to represent the truth. Unless someone from the Coeymans P.D., the Albany County Sheriff’s Department or the Town of Coeymans comes forward with a denial or a correction or even an explanation, we’ll have to presume these allegations all to be true.

The Poll is Still Going Strong!

 

Get Rid of Bruno, Coeymans P.D.!!! Poll Responses Overwhelming!

Get Rid of Bruno, Coeymans P.D.!!!
Poll Responses Overwhelming!

Now, in its 3rd week, we’ve almost doubled the responses from our last report: We’ve gone from 278 responses to 517 responses. To put this in some perspective, about 1900 Coeymans residents voted in the last elections on November 5th, 2013. Our 517 responses represent 27% of the entire number of votes in the last town of Coeymans general elections. That’s an incredibly good response and certainly represents a reliable trend among local residents.

That figure gets even larger when we consider that many of the people who voted on November 5th don’t even use computers. Furthermore, even if they are computer users and follow this blog, most are passive readers; this means they visit, read and leave, some occasionally leave a comment, but not much else. So the 517 responses we have received a people in the town of Coeymans who feel very strongly about what they’re voting on.

But in all honesty, we have to consider that some responses may come from people outside the area who have an opinion on what is going on in the town of Coeymans and the surrounding area. Perhaps they live in the town of Bethlehem but their children attend RCS schools or they have friends in the RCS area. Some responses may come from the the Town of New Baltimore, but New Baltimore has less than half the population of the town of Coeymans and less than ¼ of the responses come from the town of New Baltimore. It’s also unlikely that someone living in New Baltimore would respond to a question about Ravena but even if they did, it’s still a good indicator of what people think of the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans. So take if for what it’s worth.

The Analysis

Numbers Don't Lie

Numbers Don’t Lie, Bruno Does

First of all, 100% of respondents say that they answered the poll questions honestly and seriously. That’s good.

This blog continues to get very high marks with 87% of respondents saying they get more information from this blog than from the media. 85% feel that this blog is an important community resource. 77.5% of respondents rely on this blog for truthful information about the community. and 65% say they would gladly do business with a business that supports this blog. Needless to say, we’re very happy with these figures. Still, 17.5% feel that this blog is useless.

According to the responses received regarding Ravena mayor John Bruno and his flying monkeys, Nancy Warner, Martin Case (lost his bid in November for the town of Coeymans supervisor position), Rocco Persico, and Bill Bailey their time is getting really short. 65%  want no more Bruno, Warner, Persico, Case or Bailey in Ravena. 52% want to send mayor Bruno to Alaska, and only 7.5% think tht mayor Bruno is doing a good job. Byebye Bruno!

Flying-Monkey-We expect that after the recent revelations of the Bruno-CSX betrayal of Ravena residents, especially those on Magnolia Drive, that Bruno’s and his flying monkey’s ratings have plummeted even further. Especially after that comedy of a village council meeting and Bruno’s unabashed lies and the village trustee’s absolute ignorance. Yes, people, that’s an embarrassing bunch!

As for the town of Coeymans Police 80.0% of respondents say that the Albany County Sheriff and the New York State Police should provide law enforcement in the town of Coeymans. A whopping 75% of respondents want to eliminate the town of Coeymans police department.

70% of respondents want the police presence out of our RCS schools. Only 17.5% want to keep the police in our schools. What do you think? Take the poll.

We expect these Coeymans police department figures with skyrocket when we publish the story about how Mrs Darlington pushes out a pup and then goes back to work at Albany County DA Soares’ pigpen, while Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington stays home and babysits his new pup. Yes, Coeymans has a police chief is a stay-at-home mom but he’s doing it on taxpayer dollars. Question: Is he taking personal time, vacation time, sick leave to stay home? Likely not.

We have a story in the making that reports how two Coeymans police department employees got hold of Kerry Thompson’s official laptop (it was allegedly left unsecured in Thompson’s unlocked vehicle) and the perps sent an Albany County Sheriff’s deputy on a wild-goose chase. Craig Apple, Albany County Sheriff, almost immediately removed Thompson from the Coeymans p.d. and gave him an assignment at the Albany County Sheriff’s department, a desk job, a sort of demotion-promotion. The two Coeymans police officers, Danielle Crosier and Peter McKenna got temporary suspensions—Crosier got a week and McKenna got a month— they should have been fired. It was all discussed in “executive session,” that is, behind closed doors but our informant has the details and you will, too, very soon. What do you think of law enforcement officers involved in such stupidity?

87.5% of respondents say that no decisions should be made by the town boards until the new town boards take over. This is still very high but down 8.9% from the last tally. At this point in time, the lame ducks on the boards probably won’t get anything pushed through anyway. But any raises and promotions passed should be critically reviewed by the new boards in January.

Then we have Cathy Deluca’s payoff playpen, you know the one that mayor Bruno and his flying monkeys allocated more than $100,000 of Ravena tax dollars to support while Bruno and Warner were evicting the RCS Community Library, and working so hard to destroy the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center? Well 67% of respondents still consider the Ravena Health and Fitness Center to be “an illegal joke!”  And 0% still say that they or a famly member use the RHFC! How’s that for wise decision-making as far as your tax dollars are concerned, Ravena residents? Cathy Deluca probably loves the idea but she’s cashing in at the rate of $30,000 a year in salary plus very generous benefits. This is all happening while more and more buildings are going empty and CSX is cutting down residents’ trees for a second rail line nobody but Bruno and CSX knew about. You GO! Ravena!

Nancy Warner Sends Season's Greetings from Mayor Bruno Those aren't Christmas trees in the background!

Nancy Warner Sends Season’s Greetings from Mayor Bruno
Those aren’t Christmas trees in the background!

Speaking of the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center readers may have noticed that that building is now what is politely called “distressed property,” that is, mayor Bruno and Ravena village trustee Nancy Warner have succeeded not only in depriving local youth of a place to go for supervised and safe entertainment but they now have another empty building on Main Street, Brunoville. It’s big, ugly and empty. Congratulations! Mayor John Bruno and Nancy Warner, Marty Case and Bill Bailey, Rocco Persico! You’ve done it again! Killed something good and put another empty storefront on Main Street, Ravena.

hatchet figureRespondents, however, feel differently and it’s not good for the Bruno crowd: 70% of respondents vote to save the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center. The figures are very encouraging but unfortunately Bruno and Warner did their dirty work: the Teen Center is gone and the kids are still here, bait for the Coeymanazi police department, nowhere to go, nothing to do. All this happened while two RCS Central School District employees, Marty Case, a teacher, and Rocco Persico, a school psychologist, sit on the village of Ravena village council! A teacher and a school psychologist, sucking up school district money, figures who should have the best interests of the kids at heart and they support two mummies, Bruno and Warner, in killing the Teen Center and dumping the kids. No wonder Ravena is a dump, a ghost town, a cemetery! The didn’t allocate a single cent in support of the Youth Center but had more than $100,000 for a fitness center no one seems to want (except for Cathy Deluca and the Bruno-Warner pair).

The increasing numbers of responses give us a more reliable idea of what the Ravena-Coeymans community is thinking. The fact that respondents take the time to actually answer the question about “honestly and seriously” clearly shows that they feel it’s important to know that fact. This also means that if they are being honest and serious, they’re likely answering only those questions that apply to them. This, again, speaks in favor of the reliability of the figures.

It’s interesting that the respondents were in the early days of the poll most emotional on issues like the Coeymans p.d. and the Bruno regime when the respondent numbers were low but the percentages were high. Now we have more responses and the percentages are leveling out more. This would indicate that people with really strong feelings against these issues came out first and then more moderate readers reacted, and finally, the minority needed to go on the defense and start countering the overwhelming responses against the Coeymans p.d. and the Bruno regime. Even so, the percentages against the Coeymans p.d. and the Bruno regime continue to be overwhelmingly high and appear to want to hover there.

We have one week to go before we close down the poll and present the final figures. We urge our town of Coeymans and New Baltimore residents to participate and to vote so that your neighbors know how you feel. This is information that Coeymans and Ravena residents won’t be getting anywhere else and it’s important in view of recent developments and historic changes that have taken place in recent months.
