Hapless Hal Gets Humped: Charles Stahlman Misleads State Troopers – Hal Gets Case

Hal Warner Embarrassing Ravena

The whacko counterfeit money handler Charles “Chuck” Stahlman is on the streets and has too much time on his psycho hands. He’s so annoyed the New York State Police that they had to serve a bogus complaint on a local businessman who told Chucky (no not the horror doll, the real local horror star) to get off his property. Stahlman claims that he was harassed and demanded that the State Police take his complaint – Stahlman threatened that he would go to the NY State Police Commandant if they didn’t — so the courageous, brave, public servants got cold feet and served the business man with the bogus complaint. And Hapless Ham-hand Hal Warner allowed it. Now, people, shouldn’t we expect a higher standard of conduct from our courts? And why do our law enforcement professionals have to be the henchmen for a psychopath? It’s a slap in the face to make our troopers take such abuse from pschos, especially given the New Scotland State Police Station’s past experiences with Charles “Chucky” Stahlman, Stahlman’s wife, and his “fragile” (that’s how Chuck Stahlman describes his son, “fragile“) son, Zachary Stahlman. Given the Stahlmans’ past history with the local business and Chuck Stahlman’s record, law enforcement should have some discretionary authority, that is, the ability to tell scoundrels like Stahlman to take a walk.

Chucky Gonna Gitcha!
Chuck Stahlman on the Prowl.

Question: How can you harass someone who voluntarily trespasses on your own property, by telling him to leave? How can you harass someone who knows he shouldn’t be on the property but trespasses and then taunts the owner? Who’s doing the harassment, anyway? This is very, very strange.

Stahlman Playing the Police for Fools [AGAIN]; Hapless Hal Warner Gets the Booty-Banger


In Brief: Neither the New York State Troopers nor the Village of Ravena Court know where they are at any given time. First of all, the NYS Trooper filling out the Information (the document showing the details of the complaint) didn’t know where he was. Trooper David Cross thought he was in the Village of Ravena when he was in the Town of Coeymans. The location of the incident was in the Town of Coeymans, outside the jurisdiction of the Village of Ravena. The document prepared by the Trooper is worthless! Even worse, the summons was issued by acting Ravena Village Justice Charles Brooks. Wouldn’t you expect a sitting village justice to know what’s in his jurisdiction and what’s not? Well not in Ravena! Then we have good ol’ Hapless Hal Warner, a resident of Ravena and a village justice for almost 10 years and he doesn’t even know where the village starts and where it ends!!! His wife, Nancy Warner, has been a village council member for at least 10 years. We won’t even mention the Albany County DA David Soares‘ mealy-mouthed gopher assistant, Rat-boy Stephen T. Lydon, who was “ready for trialbut in the wrong jurisdiction. Local justice in action. You can’t make this stuff up! You have to wonder from whose pubic mound these local lice were plucked!

Back to superpsycho Stahlman. Stahlman comes into the picture when sonny boy Zachary Stahlman leased some premises from the business for a flea market,  an off-shoot of Chuck Stahlman’s so-called “antique” (= used junk) business, Fat Cat Antiques (Fat Cat Transport). The younger Stahlman subsequently broke the lease and lied his way through the small claims hearing when he demanded his security deposit to be refunded. Crackpot New Baltimore Town Justice Lee Davis, a loser and one-termer, who couldn’t read his way out of wet toilet paper, let alone a commercial lease, awarded Stahlman the security deposit. Stahlman later retained loser-lawyer, Brendan Baynes, to represent him to collect unlawful interest on the security deposit, and Baynes, idiot that he is, filed papers telling Greene County Judge and former D.A., Terry Wilhelm, that he made a mistake and didn’t know the law. Wilhelm wasted no time in putting Baynes in his place and telling Stahlman to take a walk, and denied the petition. Stahlman’s greed and little brain fart must have cost Stahlman a bundle and really pissed him off. Baynes, of course, got his fees.

Zachary C. Stahlman. Chucky Stahlman’s “fragile” son; the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, does it?

[Editor’s Note: There is some unconfirmed information that Stahlman was allegedly involved in a firearm incident involving someone he had a dispute with. The details are still unconfirmed and vague but there is a disturbing similarity of the alleged incident with that of a recent driveby shooting involving a local business who also  had dealings with Stahlman.]

The law requires that all parties to a legal action be served with any papers relating to the action. The Landlord and local businessman, in compliance with the law, served Stahlman with the papers objecting to Stahlman’s demand for interest. Stahlman and cow wifely Stahlman promptly rushed to the New Scotland State Police station and demanded that the business man be arrested for harassment, that is, complying with the law and ensuring that Stahlman was aware of what was going on.

The Station Commander correctly informed Stahlman that there was no harassment and that the law required that he be served. The Station Commander even printed out the law so Stahlman could see for himself. Stahlman still raised an uproar and had to leave the station.

No wrong-doing on the part of the NYSP! They’re on the level, as always!
Thanks to NYSP New Scotland Station Commander, SGT Michael Mullaney

Several weeks ago, during an auction on the former landlord’s property and place of business, the landlord couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw “someone who looked like Charles “Chuck” Stahlman carrying goods on the property.” The businessman couldn’t believe that Stahlman would set foot on the property and was amazed when Stahlman greets him by name. The landlord asks the auctioneer if the guy is Stahlman and the auctioneer confirms. It appears that Stahlman approached the auctioneer and asked if he needed any help moving merchandise and the auctioneer, not knowing who he was, accepted the offer. When the businessman asked the auctioneer if he hired Stahlman or even knew him, the auctioneer denied both and allegedly replied, “He offered to carry stuff.”

The businessman ordered Stahlman off the property. Stahlman promptly went to the State Police and demanded that a complaint for harassment be taken and served on the businessman. For some crazy reason, the responding trooper took the complaint and served the businessman after being threatened with retaliation to the NYSP Commandant.

[Editor’s Note: If the NY State Police had any sense at all, they’d be charging Chucky Stahlman with filing a false instrument, lying to a law enforcement officer, harassment, and perjury!!! It seems to us that it’s Stahlman who’s doing the harassing, not the businessman. What do you think?]

What’s even crazier is that the responding trooper — even if he didn’t know he wasn’t in the Village of Ravena — apparently knew of Stahlman, knew of Stahlman’s history, and knew the businessman. What’s going on?

It gets even more bizarre. You see, the alleged incident happened in the Town of Coeymans, but the trooper filled out the summons with an appearance in Ravena Village Court. Isn’t there a jurisdiction problem here? Why wouldn’t a state trooper know to put in the correct jurisdiction?

Back in about 2010 Warner Dismissed Dolan’s Speeding Ticket on Jurisdictional Grounds

Back in about 2010 (we’re verifying the date), Hal Warner dismissed a speeding ticket for buddy Tom Dolan. The ticket was issued in the Town of Coeymans but the appearance venue was Ravena Village Court. Warner dismissed Dolan’s speeding on juridictional grounds (the violation was in the jurisdiction of the Town of Coeymans, not the Village of Ravena. Ravena had no business hearing the case.) In another instance where leadfoot Dolan got another speeding ticked, then village attorney Greg Teresi advised that it be reduced to a parking ticket to avoid having to dismiss on jurisdictional grounds; it apparently was getting to risky. It appears even back then Warner was aware he couldn’t hear a case from Coeymans jurisdiction; he’s a village justice with jurisdiction only for the territory of Ravena. Dolan had to revert to corrupt town justice Phil Crandall to get his other tickets to disappear. (Personal communication; Source: Tom Dolan, Board Member, Town of Coeymans)

Well, it so happens that the businessman is allegedly family to one of Hal Warner’s arch-critics, the notorious Blogger! (We say allegedly because no one really knows who the Blogger is, do they Hal?) The Blogger’s no admirer of Ravena wannabe mayorette Nancy Warner, a sitting Ravena trustee (council member), and Hapless Hal’s wife. Is there a picture of corruption taking shape here? How about potential retaliation? Or is it just me?

So, we composed a little skit on this incident:


Ham-hand Hal Gets Humped

A very short drama by The Blogger


Characters:
Court Officer
Ham-hand Hapless Hal Warner, the Defendant
Judge (a real one)
Nookie-Nancy Warner, Hapless Hal’s Keeper
Stephen T. Lydon, Albany County Assistant D.A. (David Soares)

Hapless Hal Warner, you’re an idiot! You Dirty Dunce!


Court Officer:     Order in the Court! Defendant please rise, state your name, and occupation!

Defendant:          Ham-hand Hal Warner,  “Hapless Hal,”  sir. Ravena Village Justice Court, Nancy’s hapless henchman.

Judge:   Well, Ham-hand,  Hapless, Hal, whatever your name is, you are being charged with violation of the New York State Judicial Law and the Code of Judicial Conduct. How do you plead, Hapless Hal?

Hapless Hal:        Uh! Yer honorableness. Can you repeat the charge. I have to look it up.

Judge:   Ham-hand, you hapless incompetent, all I want from you now is how do you plead? Guilty or not guilty?

Hapless Hal:        Not guilty, your honorary-ness.

Judge:   You are pleading not guilty to criminal retaliation and abuse of judicial office by not recusing yourself, and hearing a case involving a person known to you as possibly being related to your arch-enemy, The Blogger. Is that correct, Hapless Hal? Furthermore, you Gay Goose, you don’t even know your own jurisdiction! Don’t you know where your village boundaries are?

big silly goose

Hapless Hal:        Uh! No, your venerability. Yer right. I didn’t recuse myself and I did hear the case. I though he was related to that nasty Blogger, and I couldn’t get my hands on the Blogger so I settled for him. Any village or town justice would have done the same thing, wouldn’t he, yer holiness?

Judge:   Hapless Hal Warner, you’re an idiot! We’ll do the Ravena Village Court thing and just find you guilty as charged. You should have recused yourself and stayed out of judicial hot water. Hang up your robes, you Dirty Dunce!

Hapless Hal:        But Coeymans Court would have done the same thing. They hate the Blogger, too. Besides, they elect disgraced judges to be Town Supervisor. Phil Crandall liked to do his friends favors. I just wanted to make Nancy happy. She hates the Blogger too, and would do anything – and expects me to do anything – to get at him. I did it for my wifey Nancy, your venereality.

Judge:   Get this foul-smelling sack of roadkill out of my courtroom! He’s a disgrace to the judiciary; he’s a boil on the ass of society! Besides, I think he’s peed himself.

Nancy Warner: [Wringing her bony wrinkled hands and shedding fake tears, her mascara running down into the shallow cleft of her sinking breasts] Oh, Hal, Honey Ham-hand Hapless Hubby! I’m so proud of you! You never disappoint! You are a model of Ravena corruption, stupidity, and dumb-assitude! Hold on, Hapless, I’ll bring you some fresh Depends®!

Stephen T Lydon, Assistant D.A.: Oh, my! Oh, dear! Oh, Daddy David [Soares], we screwed up again! Is my tail showing? Oh, God, give me some cheese. I need some cheese. I feel so faint.

Albany Assistant D.A. Stephen T. Lydon in Ravena Village Court

[Court officer forcibly removes the screaming, cussing, foaming Hapless Hal Warner from the courtroom, leaving a steaming trail of urine along the way. Nancy Warner follows with a box of Depends®, while Soares’ Ratboy Lydon cringes in a corner nibbling on something (Have you noticed he smells like cheese?). Exeunt stage left.]

All that’s left of Hapless Hal Warner.


Ham-hand Hapless Hal Warner: desecrating the flag.


This may be the moment we’ve all been waiting for. This may be the opportunity to bring old Ham-hand Hal Warner before the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct and force the hapless dunce into resignation and lifetime ban from running for judicial office. Just like he did to his buddy Phil Crandall.

Stahlman: “They keep telling me harassment!”

Editor’s Note: We will be contacting the New York State Police Internal Affairs Bureau, the New York State Police New Scotland Station Commander, the Office of the Albany County District Attorney, and the New York State Committee on Judicial Conduct for more details.

Editor’s Addendum: We have been provided with a request to publish the NYSP, New Scotland Station Commander’s response to an inquiry on this case. Here is the response:

When a complainant comes to us with a Violation level (not a Misdemeanor or Felony) complaint, we can’t make an arrest unless it occurred in our presence.  In this case, the Trooper takes the complaint and gives it to the judge (in this case, Ravena).  The judge makes the determination if there is enough there to issue a criminal summons.  There judge did here.  He/She issues a criminal summons to get the other party back to court.  This is a Violation level offense, not a crime.  Regardless of how we feel about the complainant, we have no choice but to proceed like we did.  I hope I explained what we did.  If you have more questions, feel free to contact me. 

Michael B. Mullaney
Sergeant/Station Commander
SP New Scotland
518-768-8154

If that’s the case, then the New York State Police, at least the New Scotland Station, deserve our thanks and support. There is no wrong-doing or misconduct on their part. As usual, the misconduct and wrongdoing lies with the psychos in our midst and the incompetent local hill-town courts. Thank you, SGT Mullaney, for this useful information!

 

New Baltimore Town Officials are Absolutely Useless!

There’s a Bully in the National Historic District

New Baltimore's Idea of Service to Residents

New Baltimore’s Idea of Service to Residents

New Baltimore Supervisor Dellisanti, Deputy Supervisor Jeff Ruso, and Animal Control Officer Joe Tanner Refuse to Enforce Town Laws

We’ve asked this question time and again: What exactly are they doing in New Baltimore town hall, anyway? They seem to have their own agendas because they’re certainly not doing residents any big favors! They don’t even communicate among themselves and are totally oblivious to the welfare of the community they’re supposed to have been elected or hired to serve.

You see, not only did property tax bills go out on about December 28, 2017, demanding, rather extorting money from property owners to pay for local and county government and our ineffectual school  — the RCS Central School District whose Board of Education can find almost a million dollars to redo the athletic field with dangerous astroturf but teachers complain there’s no money for books! So we now get a bill for property and school taxes, and you have to really wonder what your dollars are paying for. Here’s the answer: INCOMPETENCE!

Now, in the National Historic District, residents are exposed day-in-day-out to a local resident’s barking dog. Robert and Bonnie Krug of bank robber fame, keep a dog that they use to bully the neighborhood with its constant barking from morning to evening, Monday through Friday, with special performances on Saturday and Sunday.

Residents have attempted to approach the Krugs but Mr Krug responds only with threats. Maybe that’s why the Town officers don’t seem to be able to stop the nuissance; they’re afraid of Krug! Has he handed them one of his famous notes, too?

Flyers are now circulating in the Hamlet of New Baltimore asking residents to join together to neutralize the nuissance and to force the Town of New Baltimore to enforce its laws, and to restore peace to the National Historic District, and compel the irresponsible, inconsiderate owners of the animal to control their animal.

Click here to read the stop-the-bully-flyer

A resident has already sent a copy of another flyer directly to the New Baltimore Town Board through Nick Dellisanti, Supervisor, Jeff Ruso, Deputy Supervisor and Joe Tanner, Animal Control Officer. You can read that letter by clicking this link barking-dog-letter.

Like a school bully, one person can’t really fix the problem. It takes group action. People simply have to get involved. Like a school bully, if the people with authority, the teachers and supervisors, don’t take action, someone else has to step in. We urge New Baltimore residents in the National Historic District to take action both to send a message to the New Baltimore Town Board and to the Krugs that residents deserve a quality of life and the services from elected officials and town employees for which they are paying. It’s particularly important now that the Town is sending out their demands that property owners pay taxes.

We have to ask, For what?

It's not much to ask for, is it? Then why can't the New Baltimore Town Board provide it? The Editor

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.

joanatcomputer
“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.)

RCS Communities Mourn a Special Son

On July 20, 2015, suddenly, unexpectedly a special son of the RCS community for more than 75 years was summoned home; a colorful, memorable, well-liked, loved and respected member of the RCS community, Rodney A. Krzykowski, died but he left an American legacy and true meaning for those of us who are still able to know the American pioneer spirit when we see it. Rodney will be truly missed by many of us. He should be missed by all of us.

In fact, you can thank Rodney Krzykowski for this Blog! This very blog owes its existence to Rodney Kryzkowski. Think back to 2012, when the crooks, conspirators and special-interest lackies (James Latter, Howard Engel, Alice Whalen, Joe Tracey, Josephine O’Connor, Matt Miller, the RCS Sports Association, and the nefarious Delucas, Cathy and Dirty-Hands Jerry) were ambushing and backstabbing, and lying their way into controlling the RCS school board and the $42,000,000+ budget. This blog was started to defend Rodney and to expose the crooks and conspirators for what they were. That was three years ago and we’re still going strong, thanks to Rodney and the raw deal the crooks were handing him.

RodneyK_FrameRodney Krzykowski was a man of few words but those words held incredible meaning. He was an honest man, a man who shot from the hip with deadly accuracy, as many of the members of the RCS board of education, like Mr James Latter, Mr Howard “Bray” Engel, Ms Alice Whalen and others too numerous to name, learned very quickly and have the scars to prove it. Rodney was intelligent and did the math before he opened his mouth, unlike the current Latter board, and when he spoke, he made sense; he never learned double-speak.

Rodney embodied a very rare pioneer spirit and didn’t have very much use for government or the crooks government seems to attract and feed. He was brilliant when it came to researching even arcane subjects and doing his homework. Unlike most of our elected officials and public employees, Rodney thrived on intellectual challenges;if it was out there, he’d find it, and when he did Watch out! Town of Coeymans. Most of the local sheeple tended to condemn him on unsubstantiated misinformation spread by the local incest clubs. Surprised? Unlike Rodney, everyone else had something to say about his politics but none of them really knew anything at all about him or his politics. We did, though, and we must admit that he was on to something, not a fanatic or an anarchist, but a true crusader, a man whose principles guided him, and a man who thumbed his nose to ass-kissers and clique-members. When you spoke to Rodney, you had an instinctual perception that the man was special, honest, had a pioneer integrity that is almost extinct these days.

dove with olive branch

Rodney was a mechanical genius. He loved his cars and he loved racing them. Yes, Rodney raced stock and modified his cars himself, frequently creating machinery to get a job done. If something needed customizing he could conjure up an apparatus to do it. Makes you wonder that he never went the patent route with his creations; the man could have been a millionaire.

Yes, he could have been very comfortable but he preferred to remain simple and work for what he had. If you knew Rodney, you would have to agree with us that you would find it very difficult to find anyone who was a harder worker than he. The man never stopped.

Whether with friends — he was always welcome in many local homes — hanging out in local automotive shops, or at the Medway Café, where you could find hm regularly, he was quiet, minded his own business, but was always available if you wanted to chat. In fact, there was no one still living who knew more about local property histories, businesses, families, and government than Rodney Krzykowski. If you needed to know anything about the property that is now the Port of Coeymans or Don Trickie’s escapades, you’d ask Rodney. He could tell you what was there, what’s still there, who put it there and, if it’s not there anymore, where it went.

tail between legs_looking rightRodney was also an avid history buff and could talk your ear off about the Constitution, the developmental history of taxation, property laws, and the list goes on. He scared the living bejeebers out of local officials, lawyers, judges, because they were ignorant of most of what Rodney had spent years researching. Most local officials rely on an ignorant community and they have their way with the poor bastards; Not with Rodney K! He’d send those dirty dogs packing with their cruddy tails between their legs. We need more Rodneys to keep things kosher in town and village halls.

Rodney owned a tavern and most recently RAK Tire Recovery and the former R.K. Winners Circle. He was not only a businessman and entrepreneur but active in community organizations, too. He was a member of the Ravena Grange and the County Grange and was elected to serve on the RCS board of education. He even raced stock cars at Lebanon Valley for many years.

Rodney was a self-made man, a good man, a generous friend. We are deeply saddened by the way his death was hushed by his family, and how his community was deprived of the opportunity to grieve his death, how Rodney’s friends and admirers were deprived of the opportunity to mourn the loss of a friend and model citizen. We were outraged by the pitifully scant obituary that was tucked away, almost invisible, in a Sunday Times Union. Rodney deserved better, much better. In fact, quite a number of Rodney’s friends and acquaintances were shocked and offended that he was disposed of like a box of old newspapers. A number of those friends and acquaintances even offered to chip in a couple of hundred dollars each to cover a proper viewing and funeral but Rodney’s daughters allegedly wanted to make quick work of it all — the Babcock Funeral Home of Ravena (NY) — a real monopoly in the Ravena area, big prices small productions — , known for its sloppy service, probably didn’t do much to help the general situation.

But the well-hidden, cheapo obituary did announce that Rodney’s memorial service was to be held on

Saturday, August 1, 2015
at 11:00 a.m. at the
Trinity United Methodist Church
Coeymans Hollow

We hope that everyone who knew Rodney will be there to show their support for this fine man, and to show that true American pioneer spirit still has a place in our decrepit culture. Let’s see how Trinity United Methodist will manage to appropriately and fittingly celebrate Rodney’s life; are they up to the task? (See Editor’s Note.)

Editor’s Note: The turnout at Trinity United Methodist Church for Rodney’s memorial service was standing room only. Rev. Meager rushed the actual service a bit and the hymns could have been a bit more energetic but overall the event was a fine tribute. The Grange did a beautiful tribute, and the eulogies spoke only well of Rodney and his contributions to the community. It was a proper tribute to a fine man, and we’d like to thank the community for showing up and doing Rodney proud.

Rodney,
You grew in wisdom, age, and grace and learned through suffering.
May the Lord bless and keep you.
May choirs of angels welcome you and lead you into paradise,
May the martyrs come to welcome you
and take you to the holy city,
the new and eternal Jerusalem,
where you may find respite in the bosom of Abraham;
where Lazarus is poor no longer,
where every tear is wiped away.

There may you find eternal peace.

StJohnsAshfield_StainedGlass_GoodShepherd

We’ll remember you, Rodney.

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

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

GaGa Gibson

GaGa Gibson

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Colonel Chris Gibson United States Congressman

Colonel Chris Gibson

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

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

 "DoDo Cop" Darlington sharing some misinformation.

“DoDo Cop” Darlington sharing some misinformation.

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

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

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

No fatalities. YET!

No fatalities. YET!

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

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

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

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

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

It's A Shame RCS Residents Can't Stand Up for Themselves!!!The Editor

McCartney, DiAcetis, RCS Fail at Education

When so – called educators don’t educate and indiscriminately create and enforce knee – jerk policies, and superintendents stupidly announce “Rules are Rules”, that’s not education people, that’s fascism, totalitarianism, extremism. It’s not education it’s automation, creating sheeple out of sensitive and responsive minds. Is that the plan underlying today’s “education”? Is the plan to create either sheeple or criminals? Black or white: “Rules are Rules,” OBEY!

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

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

McCartney’s “Rules are rules” mantra simply doesn’t work. Where’s the education in all of this? This sort of model is used to train dogs and monkeys, not adolescent human beings. The overriding policy is: Ban it, Don’t explain it.

failed

With the deterioration of American family systems, the marginalization of religion and churches, the national and local lies and propaganda, the criminal corruption and hypocrisy we have not only in our courts, legislatures and town halls but in many of the homes where many of these young adults live is bad enough. But when we put cowards and fools in executive and administrative positions in our schools, OUR SCHOOLS, and they are contradicting everything of value, ethical, moral and civil, that’s where we have to shout very loudly: WE’VE HAD ENOUGH! GET OUT!

BAN THIS BITCH!!!

BAN THIS BITCH!!!

This is one of those times where we have to say: The students are right!

Isn’t it the job of the teachers we pay outrageously high salaries to teach our young people not ways of watching but ways of seeing; not ways of hearing but ways of listening; not ways of simply being but ways of be – ing, experiencing. Using this most recent example of the failure of our teachers, principals, administrators, isn’t this yet another example of the failure of education in our RCS schools? This is exactly what we saw during the Bruno – Warner dictatorship in Ravena when they were openly violating rights protected by the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It’s the very thing we’ve been writing about in our essays about the corruption and obstruction of justice in the Coeymans police department. That same corruption and obstruction of justice, the violation of protected rights has found its way into our schools, people, because we have allowed it to happen by loading our board of education, our district offices, and our school administrative offices and classrooms with individuals who are self – serving and members of an exclusive club –  – exclusive because although they want our tax dollars to pad their pockets, they don’t want anything to do with us or hear from us.

We are a nation of laws. We are NOT a nation of justice.
As RCS Superintendent Alan McCartney says: Rules are Rules.

In our opinion, the RCS school system and its district offices are the homeland enemies, not a bunch of camel – jockeys six thousand or eight thousand miles away! It’s actually principals like Tom DiAcetis, union-lackeys, crook teachers like Matt Miller, superintendents like Allan McCartney who are confusing the hell out of the kids and making them schizoid. Is that the plan? On thtake back americae one hand, we have a president and a congress who just last week were handing out high military honors, the Medal of Honor, to men already dead or nearly so on national television. Then we have the president of the United States announcing (finally) his “strategy” (Strategy? Well, he seems to think it’s a strategy. Sounds more like a smoke screen.)  to weaken alleged terrorists in Syria and in God knows how many other areas. What’s Obama going to use in this battle against terrorism? Chitlins? The ideology taught by our RCS teachers and represented by the RCS board of education and their parasite superintendent, Alan McCartney? We have advertisements for military organizations and military recruitment and careers everywhere you look. We have the National Rifle Association organizing huge rallies. We have “Repeal the Safe Act” everywhere you look. We have a tradition of Rod and Gun Clubs, Sportsmen’s Clubs. One of our traditional activities is hunting. We have a Second Amendment, too. Then we have our educators—and I’m using that term very loosely, indeed—banning T – shirts because they might have a depiction of a firearm on them! WTF! These people in our schools call themselves “educators”?  They’re imbeciles receiving outrageous salaries and benefits. Worse still, most of them are cowards living off the sweat, blood and sacrifices of others!

In fact, aren’t most public meetings opened with a sort of prayer called the Pledge of Allegiance? Don’t we erect monuments at public expense commemorating veterans and past wars? Don’t we have a federal holiday called Veteran’s Day? Aren’t all of these somehow connected with the Armed Forces, or something like that? Where have our so-called “educators” been through all this (probably dodging the draft or living the good life while others are dying the patriotic death). We don’t need or want cowards teaching our kids or running our schools and towns!

They still are required to teach the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights in our public schools, aren’t they?

The feminist pastor of the New Baltimore Reformed Church decided a couple of years ago that the American flag did not have a place in front of the congregation, near the lecterns, and moved the flag to the back of the sanctuary. Some in the congregation raised hell; some even left that congregation because of that action. Several years ago, the pastor of the Roman Catholic Church of St Patrick in Ravena, offended parishioners when he refused to have the coffin of dead veterans draped with the American flag in the church (he was complying with ritual instructions, actually). Again, parishioners raised hell and many went elsewhere. And, dear readers, those are churches; remember separation of church and state. What those so – called pastors failed to recognize is that their congregation members and parishioners are Americans 6 days out of the week and Christians only one day, if that. They live the American way 6 days a week; they worship only one, and many not even that.

It used to be that our schools taught us how to be good citizens while exercising our rights. Our schools and teachers taught us values and morality. Some of those values was loyalty, respect, honesty, integrity, fairness, gratitude and—surprisingly—the notion of patriotism, a form of loyalty and respect, very close to family values, actually.

Our schools and educators are sending mixed messages, the wrong messages. Parents are not carrying their fair share of the load; our local, state and national governments have become so corrupt and dishonest that the only way to cover their tracks is with propaganda, misinformation and control. Our schools, obviously, are following that same evil example.


take it back

DiAcetis’s and McCarney’s Warrior Option: Pee on’em!

Editor’s Comment. It’s obvious to us that there’s a great deal of dishonesty and hypocrisy involved here on both sides: the Ravena – Coeymans – Selkirk Central School District (RCS CSD) and the National Guard. There’s also a very deep and dangerous gap in the RCS CSD’s understanding of proper notice, due process, protected rights, and a large number of other issues of neglect or indifference. On that latter note we really have to ask why we are paying DiAcetis and McCartney salaries of more than $100,000 plus benefits to run such a shoddy show.

helmet pee

DiAcetis: I pee on you! I win!

O-14-00369​1

We also have to ask whether the RCS CSD gives any consideration to the trauma and damage that they cause to adolescents by the principal’s, the school employees’ and the superintendent’s arbitrary and overly discretionary so – called discipline. What if the kid’s wearing the shirt to honor a fallen friend or relative? What if the student is wearing the shirt as an expression of solidarity with the armed forces? What if….? Aren’t these school officials supposed to be trained in some level of psychology? Or are they indifferent to the effects their own conduct is having on these young people?

We’d like to know where the RCS CSD dress code is published. We can’t find it anywhere. And was it at some point subject to public comment at, say, a RCS board of education public meeting? If the RCS CSD dress code is intended to control behavior, to limit free expression, to do anything that might even remotely affect a person’s rights, it should be subject to public comment and should be published. Does anyone know where it is, apart from in DiAcetis’ desk drawer?

What is the RCS CSD position and policy regarding the United States Armed Forces, exactly? We have to assume that the recruiter just didn’t stroll in and hand out shirts…or can we? The RCS CSD is aware that the National Guard and other branches of the US armed forces used weapons from time to time, even deadly force. Aren’t they? What’s the big surprise that a shirt should show a military personnel with a rifle? Does Mr Diacetis or Mr McCartney think that wars and battles are won, that terrorists are subdued by the US military by our men in uniform meandering up to the enemy and threatening to pee on him if he doesn’t give up? Interesting notion but we don’t think that tactic would work on the battlefield. Weapons carried by trained warriors have proved to be effective.

Actually, in these times of US military action in so many places all over the globe, we think it’s disgraceful, scandalous bordering on the treasonous, to show such disrespect for young people’s patriotism not to mention for the efforts of our men and women in uniform. Shame on you you pitiful examples of RCS CSD cowardice!

McCartney's Secret Weapon: Pee on'em!

McCartney’s Secret Weapon: Pee on’em!

We also find it disturbing that the National Guard would even consider pandering to these cowards’ by “sanitizing” their promotional shirts. Does the National Guard really think that if their shirts don’t feature a weapon that anyone is going to think that they are going to use the “pee threat” on terrorists, looters, etc.? It’s shameful that the National Guard is acquiescing to the scandal by superficially denying the use of deadly weapons in their activities. Does the National Guard believe that by caving to the cowards that the kids are so stupid to think that guns are not used in defense activities?

Isn’t denial and hypocrisy already out of all control in our community and in this country? Can’t we just be honest for a change and call a spade a spade?

What will the cowards want next? Do we have to remove all weapons from our military displays, monuments, recruitment advertising. Perhaps a big peeing penis would be more their taste in support of the “pee threat.”

Is it too much to ask parents to know who their children are? To know where they are? To know what they’re doing? Is it too much to ask parents to tear themselves away from their smart phones, their computers, the TV and give some attention to their kids so that they don’t resort to mass murder to be heard? Go figure!


We cannot treat an entire sector of our population, a well – informed, inquisitive, powerful, and activist group like our high – school students, like a bunch of budding criminals, a bunch of retards who as soon as they see a weapon on a T – shirt they become serial killers or mass murders. We have to give them the credit they deserve for having brains and a reasoning process going on in there. We have to stop sending the mixed messages because they will call us on that and we, as adults, lose credibility with them. That’s not a good thing.

Taxpayers, residents, parents of RCS students: You have to take some responsibility for this injustice being done to our young people! We have to get the cowards, the harlots, the adult bullies, the egoists, the crooks and the scoundrels out of our schools. We have to allow our young people to develop good values, ethics, morals and character; when they express good values, ethics, morals and character we must not demoralize, criminalize them. Stop allowing your schools to create sheeple out of thinking human beings or pay the price of Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China, and Obama’s United States: Propaganda, Fascism, Totalitarianism, Rule by the Elite. It’s the another step in poisoning America.

DiAcetis, McCartney. Do it NOW!

DiAcetis, McCartney. Do it NOW!

DiAcetis and McCartney must apologize to the students, to the community, to the Armed Forces of the United States.

DiAcetis and McCartney must then RESIGN.

We believe in Choices. Given DiAcetis and McCartney a choice: RESIGN OR GET FIRED!!!

We believe in Choices.
Give DiAcetis and
McCartney a choice:

RESIGN OR GET FIRED!!!

They Publicize Their Ignorance: RCS Does It Again!

The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District and the Community of Ravena-Coeymans Has the Uncanny Ability to Continuously Prove Our Claim that They are COMPLETE DUMBASSES!

RCS Grad: Sponcer. S-P-0-N-C-E-R. Sponcer

RCS Grad: Sponcer. S-P-0-N-C-E-R. Sponcer

  • The voters in the RCS Central School District approved a school budget of more than $42 million and it’s still failing

  • The RCS Central School District Interim Superintendent of Schools, Mr Alan McCartney, has been accused of plagiarizing all or part of his commencement speech given at the recent RCS graduation ceremonies, and he has offered no defense, explanation or apology

  • The RCS Central School District Board of Education is bought and paid for, wholly owned now by the teachers union, New York State United Teachers, NYSUT, and taxpayers have lost all input in the operation of the schools.

In Ravena Coeymans there’s not a single village idiot; they’re all village idiots!

And still, again, something new comes up that convinces you that there’s just no end to the stupidity, the bare-faced craziness in this community. Small wonder that it’s hemorrhaging residents and businesses. Small wonder it’s the laughing stock of the entire region! If it isn’t creating special village fitness clubs for its political friends and handing them fitness centers together with salaries and benefits, if the judges aren’t violating the United States Constitution, if the Coeymans police department isn’t harassing, retaliating, intimidating residents and violating their civil rights, and if the village and town boards aren’t poisoning the air we breathe or the water we drink while playing Russian roulette with our lives and property, they find some stupidity to keep us on our toes. In Ravena-Coeymans there’s not a single village idiot; they’re all village idiots! But you’d think that RCS residents would smarten up!

Not Gonna Happen! Instead, residents just roll their eyes, shake their heads, and sometimes even show enough interest to shake their fists in the dusty Coeymans aire, when they read what we have to say and the facts we uncover. Truth hurts only when it ought to. Well here’s another one for you; read and weep:

On Monday, July 14, 2014, while driving along Route 9W we noticed a very large sign posted at the intersection of Rt 143 and Rt 9W in Ravena, probably the busiest intersection in the entire area. The sign is right in front of the now empty Crossroads garage, across from the RiteAid plaza. Now you know the sign is in a very, very visible position and can be easily seen by countless commuters, visitors, tradespersons, students, parents, etc. traveling both South and North on 9w and East and West on Rt 143. The sign is announcing a Brooks Bar-B-Q event and is embarrassing:

Show the entire world how ignorant you are, RCS! And you wonder why you're a laughing stock? You ask for it!

Show the entire world how ignorant you are, RCS!
And you wonder why you’re a laughing stock? You ask for it!

Hasn”t anyone seen this sign? Hasn’t anyone said anything to the people posting it? Where is the Ravena Village Board, the Coeymans Town Board, ANYONE? Where are the teachers, the board of education members on this one? Where are the parents? Don’t the students even notice? Maybe that’s why this RCS district is such a failure! Plenty of money to throw at the schools, plenty of corruption to fill the seats of the board of education, plenty of money to pay a superintendent to plagiarise a commencement speech but not a peep when the Ravena Grange “sponcers” Brooks Bar-B-Q. Let’s just hope they don’t “sponcer” a spelling bee any time soon! And who is the illiterate bumpkin at the Ravena Grange Hall who posted the announcement?

Now which of you geniuses wrote the text for the sign?

Now which of you geniuses wrote the text for the sign?

The fact that the sign is even there, still there and has been there for all to see proves one thing: You’re all ignorant and brain-dead, and you want the entire world to know it! You should be mortified that no-one until now has come forward to demand that the sign be corrected or removed!

Enjoy your Brooks Bar-B-Q. Or maybe you should invest what you’d spend on toxic food on a cheap dictionary. But then the Brooks Bar-B-Q fundraiser might be to raise funds to teach standard English spelling in RCS schools. Perhaps we’ve been too hasty?

Ravena Health and Fitness Center: Year One = Miserable Failure!!!

Village of Ravena Mayor, Village Council Continue to Do Voo-Doo Management: Ravena Health and Fitness Center Deep is in the RED; Cathy Deluca’s the Only One Smiling on Her Way to the Bank!!!

In late 2012, former Mayor of the Village of Ravena, John T. Bruno (defeated), his hatchet woman Nancy Biscone-Warner, and the morons on the former Village of Ravena village council, Nancy Biscone-Warner, Martin Case (defeated), Rocco Persico (defeated), William “Bill” Bailey, in a behind-closed-doors conspiracy with Cathy Deluca, wife of former disgraced Coeymans cop “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca (now the CEO/Exec. Dir. of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs), decided to purchase  used fitness equipment more than $40,000 in taxpayer dollars  from a Ravena insider, Robert “Bob” Fisk (His son is now operating the new Fisk’s Variety garbage shop on Main Street, Ravena, site of the former Teen Center. Josie Biscone-Bruno of Prudential Real Estate, made the deal with the Teen Center on behalf of Fisk. A real insider operation if there ever was one.). The public was not consulted on that purchase. (See our article, for example, “A Senile, Demented Brain Gives Birth: You Pay Again!“)

Total Income for the RHFC for 2013-2014 Doesn’t Even Cover Cathy Deluca’s Salary!!!!

Cathy Deluca on the way to the bank while Ravena taxpayers look on.

Cathy Deluca on the way to the bank while Ravena taxpayers look on.

Then in 2013, again behind closed doors Bruno, Warner, and Deluca got together to create the Ravena health and Fitness Center in the space previously occupied by the RCS Community Library, and after a scandalous and disgraceful dog-and-pony act, raising the library’s rent for the space more than $700 a month and under threats of eviction, the library’s new home was final finished by Don Persico (cousin of the then sitting Ravena village council member, Rocco Persico), and in May, 2013, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center had its “open house,” and the appointed insider director, Cathy Deluca, managed to open her big mouth and expose the village of Ravena to a potentially very expensive lawsuit. (See our article, “Criminal Complaint: Catherine M. Deluca a.k.a. Cathy Deluca, Claude A. Wheeles, Ravena Health and Fitness Center“)

Later, the gang of five calling itself the Ravena village council, submit incomplete and fraudulent paperwork to get Cathy Deluca a non-competitive civil service classification to be director of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. Cathy Deluca had no qualifications to be director and, by the way, had already mismanaged at least two previous “health clubs” to ruination and failure, including the very health club run by Bob Fisk and the source of the used fitness equipment purchased with taxpayer money but no public inputs. (Read more on this at
Who is “Cathy Deluca”? and “Bruno, Deluca, Warner Squirming to Cover It Up“)

In the 2013-2014 Village of Ravena Budget, the Gang-of-Five approved more than $105,000 of taxpayer money to fund the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, paying Cathy Deluca more than $30,000 a year plus full benefits.

The Village of Ravena village council under mayor William “Moose” Misuraca and his running mates councilmen Joel Coye and Keith Mahler and two leftovers from Bruno’s scandalous quarter century in office, Nancy Biscone-Warner and William “Bill” Bailey, approved the 2014-2015 Village of Ravena Budget, allocating another more than $105,000 to fund the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and, in that same budget, approved a pay-raise of more than $900 for Cathy Deluca.

Misuraca, Coye, Mahler Ran on a Promise of Financial Responsibility, Accountability, Transparency BUT ….

It now is obvious that only the faces have changed. After a really disappointing kick-off of the Centennial celebrations with an embarassing so-called parade that was preceded by an embarrassing watermain break on the parade route (Cathy Deluca chaired the Centennial Committee that organized the parade), we have been provided with documents secured by a resident under the provisions of the New York State Freedom of Information Law, that clearly show that the Ravena Health and Fitness Center MUST GO!

According to the monthly reports prepared by Cathy Deluca and submitted to the Ravena village council, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center is failing badly and hemorrhaging moneyhemorrhaging money right into Cathy Deluca’s pockets. Here are the figures (available to anyone on demand in the Ravena village clerk’s office):

Cathy Deluca and an Ignorant Village Council Hemorrhaging Money

Cathy Deluca and an Ignorant Village Council Hemorrhaging Money

(Editor’s Note:  The figures for May 2014 were not available so in the table above, to be fair, we took the average figures for the previous 11 months and used them for the month of May 2014. This was really very optimistic—and very generous—, considering the drastic decline in membership figures over the period.  Not included in the above figures is $2,040.00 for “Tabata Bootcamp” in March 2014. According to unconfirmed information, an employee of the RHFC is being paid extra to do that class. Although we have attempted to include everything possible in the figures above, the picture is bleak, very bleak.)


Back in July 2013, in our article, “Ravena & Risk – Taking: Is it really the role of municipal government?” we wrote:

“Just to break even, the fitness center would have to attract about 425 – 450 paying members; that means, Ravena and the surrounding area would have to attract at least 425 persons who would be willing to fork over between $250–300 a year to join the fitness center, which pales in comparison to other local chain centers with all the facilities like tanning, certified trainers, fitness programs, ultra – modern equipment, men’s and women’s changing rooms, showers, swimming pools, etc. The Ravena Health and FitnessCenter has none of these but membership is far more expensive than any of the major local clubs. So where are these 425 – 450 members going to come from in Ravena or Coeymans? Answer: They aren’t!”

Now we can write:

we_told_you_so

 In the First Year of Operation Deluca has Attracted less than 3% of Ravena Residents; Total income for the RHFC doesn’t even add up to Deluca’s salary for the period.

The membership numbers in the above table are a very misleading for the months of May 2013−February 2014 because Ms Deluca did not break down the membership figures into 12-month, 6-month, per-visit, etc. but lumped them all together, giving the false impression that people were actually joining. In March and April 2014, Deluca started breaking down the “membership” figures, and it looks like 1 year memberships for Marchtotaled only 97 members  with only 1 new member in March, and in April 2014 the RHFC had a total of only 103 1-year members. (The 11 new members shown in the table for May is our overly-generous manipulation of the statistics to guestimate a number for May, based on the average for the preceding 11 months. Obviousy, 11 is much to high!)  There were 16 six-month members in March and that figure remained unchanged in April 2014. There are several other “categories” of members that go into Deluca’s misleading totals but the bottom line is that in the first year of operation, memberships are dropping and so are revenues. In the entire first year of operation, the Ravena Health and Fitness center has attracted less than 3% of Ravena residents to join. The numbers don’t lie: Out of about 1930 Ravena residents in the age group eligible for membership (18-65 year olds) Deluca, despite her spending on advertising, has been able to attract only about 100 members (some of whom are not Ravena residents). In percent of eligible residents that’s only 5% or 1 out of every 20 eligible residents, who would likely use a fitness club,. That’s pretty paltry performance.

Do the math: It’s costing Ravena $1,000 a year for each of Cathy Deluca’s members who are paying only about $250 a year in membership dues and purchases at the RHFC. Does anyone see a problem here? Obviously, Mr Mayor “Moose” Misuraca doesn’t . Mr Misuraca: What if at the Ravena Halfway House tavern you had to pay $10.00 for every $2.50 your customers spend? How long would you stay in business?

But instead of spending more time trying to make her RHFC playpen work, she’s grabbing other things, like trying to be chairperson of the Ravena Centennial—and screwing that up, too!

In fact, for the entire year of operation the total deposits made by the Ravena Health and Fitness Center are less than what the village is paying Cathy Deluca to mismanage the faclility! Deluca is pulling more than $30,000 plus full benefits; the RHFC brought less than $29,000.00!!! And that doesn’t include other salaries, equipment, operating expenses. The RHFC doesn’t even pay rent or utilities and it’s still losing more than $75,000 of taxpayer money in the first year!!!

ONE GLARING QUESTION YOU ALL SHOULD BE ASKING YOURSELVES: WHY IS THE RAVENA HEALTH AND FITNESS CENTER STILL THERE???

Why is it still there Mr Misuraca, Mr Coye, Mr Mahler, Ms Warner, Mr Bailey?

Don’t you ever wonder why the Ravena News Herald and the Albany Times Union never seem to pick up on these stories. They sorta get swept under the carpet. Why not ask  Bryan Rowzee, Melanie Lekocevic, Marlene McTique, or the head honchos at the Johnson Newspaper Group, John Johnson or Mark Vinciguerra why they don’t come clean with some investigations and some reporting on these crooks?

Common “Cents” Part II: “Figures don’t lie, but liars sure can figure!”

Ravena Resident and Taxpayer, Mr Laszlo Polyak, Continues His Analysis of Past and Current Village of Ravena Budgets. Here’s What He Has To Say in Continuing Part I, Common Cents:


Common “Cents” Part II:

“Figures don’t lie, but liars sure can figure!” (Mark Twain)

Local Analyst, Former Auditor Scrutinizes Ravena Budget

Local Analyst, Former Auditor Scrutinizes Ravena Budget

In Part One I didn’t mention any names or the RCS CSD (as the RCS school budget controversy came around and continues to waste money but that’s a novel in itself). I had only one issue: “bullying” and I stayed with the bullying issue.

The editing of Part I by Smalbany blog staff is a part of life. I stay with numbers not personalities. I’m not sure what “wingnuts” means, I don’t do “drumstick bolts”, “dirty-feet cops “, dumb-dumb police chiefs, poop-poop police, or towel-painted-blond–fitness-tubby, etc. True, the pictures do help with the boring bean counting budget reading. I also didn’t state the village court must go. I would have to look at many facts and factors then say it’s got to go.

In Part II, however, I will mention names as they relate to the budget and which are of public record, so you can address, seek or ask your own questions of department heads or the individuals themselves, and you can draw your own conclusions. Actually, only two sitting members of the Ravena Village counsel are actually responsible for the 2014–15 budget, Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey, but their political lives are nearing an end, too. As in that cop TV show, Dragnet, Sergeant Joe Friday wants just the financial facts ma’am! The financial facts! Dull and dry but color may or not be, but usually is, added by the Smalbany editors.

Some commenter’s and the editors have asked for a comparison between the village of Ravena, town of Coeymans and / or New Baltimore. It’s like comparing apples to oranges; it’s not easy to do because there are different mandates that apply to towns and villages; towns have far more responsibilities than villages do, so most bookkeepers/CPA/auditors whether local, state or federal will tell you that you really can’t compare them. Maybe you could compare office by office, or you might compare building departments or the clerk’s offices, such as a comparison of the town of Coeymans clerk’s office vs the Village of Ravena clerk’s office. However when 1500 folks move out, we do need to consolidate services. Plenty of little Indian chiefs but not enough Indians in our town (A grand total of 7300 folks combined in town of Coeymans, including the Village of Ravena!) The town clerk is elected but the village clerk is appointed. The town clerk has ten times more work than the village clerk. The town clerk is responsible for added mandates such as marriage, hunting, fishing, dog, licenses, recording deaths, overseeing cemeteries, collecting taxes and fees from all other departments (except for the court fees /fines), sending out tax, water, sewer bills, recording town, zoning, planning, special and regular meetings, public notices, F.O.I.L. requests, certificates of residences, stamp into the record notices of claims and letters to other departments even copies of the budgets and all history requests, etc.

Says it all!>/big>

Says it all!

The town clerk also oversees elections every year and certifies election results for registered voters. And the town clerk is the registrar of vital statistics and does the town banking, too. Let’s not forget she handing out free Arby meal cards, too, when Coeymans was Reubenville! The town clerk does all of this on a $41,000.00 year salary with staff salaries of $64,000; that’s one full time clerk and 2 part time helpers. Under the New York law, the general municipality law as relates to villages, there are two distinct offices or positions: a village clerk and village treasurer. Under mayor John T. Bruno Ravena bizarrely combined both separate positions into one clerk-treasurer, and then added a deputy clerk-treasurer position. Nancy Warner needed control over everything and her friends needed jobs, too. All other villages have a clerk and a treasurer with clear responsibilities separate from each other, as spelled out in village law.

However, when we the compare the village office to the town, the village clerks’ responsibilities don’t include marriage, hunting, fishing dog licensing or death certificates;-they only record village meeting minutes, they don’t record planning or zoning minutes. The village of Ravena administers to at most 3,000 residents instead of 7,300, which are the responsibility of the Coeymans town clerk; The village clerk also collects village taxes. I think they collect water and sewer rents too? It’s not clear if they collect water/sewer rents. They do F.O.I.L. (New York State Freedom of Information) requests. They issue pool passes.

Ravena will need one of these when cooking the budget!>/big>

Ravena will need one of these when cooking the budget!

The Village of Ravena’s Clerk/Treasurer gets $29,500 according to acct # 1325.14 and the Deputy Clerk-Treasurer gets $ 39,955.76. According to acct# 1325.15 (The superior apparently gets paid less than the subordinate so there must be something going on behind the scenes!). The part time Ravena clerk-treasurer is paid $12,360.00. and here’s where it gets really tricky: There is an “outside service” budget line item # 1325.48 showing $9,500.00; is that a “bonus” for an employee or is it another person? There is another budget line item for “payroll contractual expense” acct # 1325.43, it went from zero for the year 2012/2013 to $6000.00 in 2013/2014. Is that “training” or another person, or is it another phantom employee? In acct #1325.47 “conferences” another $2,500.00 what’s that for?

The total spent on the salaries varied from $81,855.76 to $100,000.76 for doing about one third the work of the town of Coeymans clerks. Why is the payroll for the Ravena village clerk more than that of the Coeymans town clerk who does 3 – times the work and does it for more than twice the number of residents?

An auditor’s job can be so dull with so many colorful questions. So you can see it’s hard to compare until you review the actual bills, vouchers, and actual records (if any are kept). Trustee Nancy Biscone – Warner, the former deputy clerk-treasurer for about 25 years is on the committees to over-see the village offices (clerks), the police (Dirty – Hands Jerry Deluca), the fitness center (Cathy Deluca), the central garage and the streets. Perhaps she can answer some of the questions to clear up the salaries and expenses for these offices and accounts.

According to official village paperwork, postage account #1325.41 in 2012/2013 was $3,500; in 2013/2014 it was $3,199.00; in 2013/2014 it was $7,100.00 then $8,000.00 in 2014/2015. Postage more than doubled between 2012 and 2014. But in that period, more folks moved out of the village and town. Why the doubling of the postage? Was someone running the political campaigns from the village of Ravena offices?

Let’s take a real look at one of the departments phone bills, the Ravena Building Department in the budget is known as Public Safety, acct #’s 3620.11 through 3620.49. Its telephone budget is $1,500.00, that could be real after all our village of Ravena is booming….take a stroll down Main Street or 9W. We are building senior housing left and right. The numbers of family homes are going up all over too. Never mind businesses going into the store fronts. Sorry! I was only trying to be funny. Sure, the deterioration of the Bruno – Warner ghost town does requir the building inspector to be at 10 places at once to inspect all this activity of the economic boom in Ravena (hint: sarcasm). With 500 telephone messages to return too! (Only kidding we are the regional ghost town at this time, while Bethlehem assessors refer to the RCS school district as a “failure.”)

Even with the latest population loss of 500 folks in the village it is not easy to see how the phone bill went from $989.52 in 2012 (actual) to $1,500 in 2014-15 (budget).

Now, looking at employee employment I will walk you through this, it may be bizarre but it is their record. First you have budget line item # 3620.11 where the part time clerk goes from $6,960.49 (actual in 2012-13), and then in 2013-14 jumps to $20,000, and then in 2013-14 to $21,600 part time. Look at line item # 3620.12 “assistant building inspector (part time)” Santa $10,300.00 (Yeah! Santa Claus is generous to himself!). Then it really gets weird the Building Inspector budget line item # 3620.13, Joe Burns gets $27,254.16 then in the back pages of the budget you see Joe Burns gets $54,508.32/year, the other (27,254.16 comes from building-Mountain Rd. acct 1623.12 custodians or hourly employee 27,254.16) but when look at that account the budget is 33,990.00 or 30,900.00 are you confused yet? But when you add the 2 accts in “Mountain Rd accts”, together 1623.12 and 1623.15 you get $64,890.00 for the cleaning of the building/maintaince. Our question is this: Is Joe Burns the janitor too?

Now, let’s go back to so – called building inspector budget line item # 3620.15. This is still another hourly employee at $8, 755, for what? What do they do? Filing all those new building permits, blueprints? Then we have motor vehicle that’s $1,000 a year but no gas expense. We see them driving all around the village all day long all the time! They must run on air? Where are the figures for vehicle fuel expenses? The outside service for budget line item # 3620.48, is $ 6,024 .44 (actual) for whom or what is that expense? What’s it for, financial braniacs? Then we have “unclassified expenses”? Are “unclassifieds” really legal? For the year 2012 – 13 we had an expenditure of $78,049.73 (actual). Is that the cost of taking down the building on the corner of Main St and Orchard Ave.? Remember DEC got involved in that fiasco because the oil tank wasn’t removed first, causing an oil spill in the basement all in front of Nancy Warner’s property! Now there’s an example of Warner’s performance as trustee in charge of buildings and streets! And where was the building inspector in all this? Contact the DEC to find out the fine amount for that one, and then you might find the fine amount under one of the many unclassified expenses. Pretty clever move that one! Hiding the fines for incompetence under the “unclassifieds” in the budget. What’s worse still, is that they include the fines for incompetence in proposed budgeting! I never heard of “UN – ” classified expenses. Any bill received by a municipality (Ravena seems to be the exception) goes into a specific account or you create an expense account for it.

cicero on the budget

Let’s go back to Mountain Rd. where we find an unclassified expense of actual $41,407.93 is that the hidden cost of taking down the building at Main Street and Orchard Ave.? The outside services 2012 – 13 budget line item # 1623.48 for $ 14,735.67 (actual amount), was that to cover up the cost to the removal of the building too? What are they hiding at $18,000 for 2014-15? An expense before there’s a classification for it, like putting the cart before the horse?

The zoning and planning attorney gets $6,300 for the planning board and $6,300 for zoning board each, totaling $12,600.00. To be fair the building department under budget line item # 2555 brings apparently brings revenue into the village of Ravena to the tune of $1,852 in 2012-13 in building permits. Wow! Now we’re talking some real money! Almost $2,000 in revenues. Don’t get too excited. Just do the math.

The Public works administration, village foreman salary for Fritz, who drove around Ravena all day long for over $60,000.00 a year (see budget line item # 1490.11), now it’s Henry’s position so he gets to drive around for $60,000.

Laszlo Polyak
Ravena Resident and Taxpayer

It seems the more folks move out of Ravena the more the village hires and pays for overtime but that’s another story. I hope the new mayor demands written competitive proposals for goods and services provided from outside sources to the village, requires justification in advance from his department heads on weekly basis for any overtime, insists on a description and justification for any unclassified expense and then requires them to be classified, and reviews all job descriptions against requirements for village employees. He could start with the Village of Ravena clerk’s office, then move on to the building inspector, and finish up with the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and the Village of Ravena (kangaroo) Court. That should save at least nearly a cool million and how do you think that will affect your tax bill?

aww, you aren’t even close.

 FireGeezer, A Blog Dedicated to the First Responder/Firefighter Community, Recently Reposted Part of Our Article “Share Our Shock” on the Unbelievable Stupidity of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs and Their Decision to Hire Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca” to be the Association’s CEO/Executive Director. We posted a link the FireGeezer’s web site. No sooner had we done that than the rats left their dark holes and started their rants. Well, it didn’t take long for FireGeezer to figure out their agenda and POOF! all of their posts suddenly got deleted. That’s happening more and more to them lately and so it should.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “taunt” as “a reproach in a mocking or insulting style. This is a taunt.

Joke's On Sicko! BANNED AGAIN!

Joke’s On Sicko!
BANNED AGAIN!

 It’s ironic that as soon as the lunatic rants got deleted, so did Sicko’s identity. He’s* a nobody again!

[* We are using the pronoun “he” not because we think the Sicko is a male but because traditionally the grammatical “he” is used to mean both genders; today, thanks to the feminist agenda, the pronoun “she” is frequently used in the same way.]

WE WIN (AGAIN)—YOU LOSE AGAIN, LOSER

One of the sickos who apparently is desperate for attention wrote in a comment: “aww, you aren’t even close. Guess those close to you are going to betray you sooner than later.” That sicko is responding to our “UPDATE” on this blog in which we finger a local whacko as the one who posted the crazy rants on FireGeezer. But what the sicko doesn’t realize is that he or she is actually identifying with the psychopath we suspect to have written the stupidity on FireGeezer. It’s ironic that as soon as the lunatic rants got deleted, so did Sicko’s identity. He’s a lonely nobody again!

But to set the record straight, the sick minds who are so desperately trying to put a face on this blog, who are so desperately trying to vent their frustration about not being able to spew their venom, and hurt the community-spirited people reading and contributing to this blog, those same sociopathic personalities are actually shooting themselves in the foot. Here’s why:

First of all, those sickos are ignorant of the content of this blog. If they knew anything about this blog, they would know that on May 5, 2012, in the article a “A Little History Lesson“, everything they think that they are exposing was already thrown out there for everyone to read. Even the owner of the blog was identified. Yes! No guessing required. That article identified the blog owner! No secrets, readers. Everything was up on the front page since May 5, 2012—until they started getting really nasty.  But that article, “A little History Lesson” was there for everyone to read, and was until this morning (we password protected the page but you can request a password to view it. Just write us at rcs.confidential (a) gmail.com) That was done because it was all made up in sick minds, meaningless, already shown to be garbage, and the Editor wanted to get it out of the way, knowing that some dumbasses would want to drag it out and use it stupidly. That’s exactly what they did and are trying to do. But they failed, miserably.

Secondly, if they think that they have some special, secret information that they can use to discredit and destroy someone they repeat it over and over again, until they believe their own lies, and then attacking more and more innocent people. Apparently, they think that by doing that someone’s going to lose their cool and react. Not gonna happen. You see, those lies have been around so long and the stories, the tales have been told again and again that everyone, and we mean EVERYONE is sick of hearing them. So our advice to Sicko and his friends is: Get a life and a brain, stupid! You’ve tried this all before and it didn’t work then so why do you think it’s going to work now? It’s all old and uninteresting. People knew your agenda years ago and it didn’t work!

The most reliable sign of stupidity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. You’re a pitiful idiot!

The third point we’d like to make is this: You can’t fight hard facts by trying to kill the messenger, stupid! This blog goes to incredible lengths to get hard facts and information, and only then publishes the hard, true facts. You can deny them all you like but they are still there. Call us what you like but it doesn’t change the truth or the facts. But there is something you can do:

  • If you don’t like the Deluca stories, check out the facts and if you have a defense, send us the facts. We’ll be happy to print them.
  • If you don’t like the facts we publish on the Warners, send us facts that prove us wrong and we’ll publish them.
  • If you don’t like the facts about the Coeymans police department, send us the facts that refute our conclusions.
  • If you don’t like what we publish about the Village of Ravena and the Village of Ravena budget, show us in the budget what we got wrong.
  • If you feel that Ravena needs Cathy Deluca’s playpen to the tune of $105,000 a year when the Ravena Health and Fitness Center generates no revenues for the Village of Ravena, show us the facts and figures that say that Ravena needs the RHFC and that it’s worth the taxpayer dollars being wasted on it.
  • If you don’t like our exposés of the failing Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk schools or the teachers union or the board of education, leave a comment complete with facts and figures to rebut what we write. We’ll publish your comment.

You can’t fight hard facts by trying to kill the messenger, stupid!

You can’t do any of that and so you try again and again to kill the messenger by repeating your fairy tales and attacking even his/her family. Isn’t that a real cowardly way to try to prove your point? Well, it’s not working, stupid! All you do is get your ass kicked again and again. All you manage to do is get yourself banned from just another blog or website. Are you such a dumbass that you keep doing the same thing over and over again and get the same results? (Answer: YES!) See above for the “most reliable sign of stupidity.”

As we mentioned above, back on May 5, 2012, when we first published this blog, we actually published the very same things you continue to think are so important. In one of our first articles, “A Little History Lesson,” we went public with all of that slander and libel—by its very definition unfactual and false—; in the first week that this blog was published we had already published your stupid lies ourselves. Why? Because we wanted the world to know what stupids like you would probably come up with, thinking it was so significant, but we tripped you up by having put it out there right from the start. We beat you to the punch you idiot but you don’t even know that! And you think that because you post the same crapola and put one of your many fake names on it or use one of your many fake e-mails, that it’s going to be news. Please see above for the “most reliable sign of stupidity.”

Accept the Fact that you and your kind are losers! And in denial!

Accept the Fact that you and your kind are losers! And in denial!

Look, Stupid, we have established ourselves as highly reliable, strongly factual, reality-based, journalism-quality reporting. We publish only reliable and verifiable information, most often getting the facts under the provisions of the New York State Freedom of Information Law directly from the very public entities we are reporting on. If you think you can do better, please do. We’d love to see what you come up with.

We get more than 10,000 readers a month and in the next couple of weeks we’ll have a quarter of a million readers (250,000 readers). And that’s not even counting the readers from FaceBook and other social media, or the visitors referred to the site by email or by our many registered followers! People trust us and believe in us. We earned that trust by being honest and factual. We risked a lot by publishing this blog and going after the powers-to-be but the information was too important not to get it out to the community. Instead of hiding in some dark place away from the retaliation and intimidation that was part of our neighbors’ day-to-day life we came out and went on the counter-attack. We sent the real rats scurrying for their holes but smoked the bastards out again. We’re still doing that and will continue to do it until they’re all in a cage. The community is grateful and says so repeatedly. We have changed elections and changed the way our friends, neighbors and readers think. What have YOU done, stupid?

People like you make us all feel like geniuses.

People like you make us all feel like geniuses.

The very site on which you tried but failed to discredit us independently picked up on our article and asked many of the same questions: Who is Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca? That first-responder/firefighters website asked the same questions we did and agreed that there were questions, even rebuttals that had to be made. Did anyone rebut the real facts or refute them? No! Deluca didn’t and the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs didn’t either. Why? Because they couldn’t rebut or refute the truth, the facts.

Neither can you so you resorted to your old tricks. Whether you’re a Joan Ross, a Cathy Deluca, a Jerry Deluca, a Nancy Warner, a Tim Houghtaling, a Scott Horne you’re all the one and the same: cockroaches. And your methods are all the same. Please see above for the “most reliable sign of stupidity.”

So, that’s that. Save your energy. What you think is an ace is from an old marked deck, a very old, very worn out cheat’s deck. No one’s interested in your puffed up fantasy stories, your half-truths, your slanders or your libels. You get banned every time and you’re only building a case against yourself.

Why you don’t just accept our good advice to stay on topic, be truthful, state true facts, and stop wasting everyone’s time trying to put a face on this blog. You won’t be able to do it and it’s totally unnecessary. No matter who is writing this blog it won’t change the facts. The truth will continue to be true no matter who writes it.

Instead of hiding in some dark place away from the retaliation and intimidation that was part of our neighbors’ day-to-day life we came out and went on the counter-attack. We sent the real rats scurrying for their holes but smoked the bastards out. We’re still doing that and will continue to do it until they’re all in a cage.  What have YOU done, stupid?

Like rats driven by the bait in a trap, you are driven by your greed and hypocrisy to take another step into your depravity, until, like the unfortunate rat, you snatch at the bait and SNAP! … you know the rest of the story.

And finally, we don’t really care who you are. We really don’t care. Why? Because you are no longer a real person. You have become a cliché and a negative symbol. It doesn’t matter who you are because it’s what you represent that counts. You represent all that is false, crooked, corrupt, dishonest, insecure, immature, and evil that is in our communities, in our government, even in our churches. You are a symbol like satan is a symbol. We don’t want to be around your kind and we don’t want your kind in our communities.

You speak of betrayal? Look, there’s nothing to betray except ourselves and our principles of truth, integrity, and service. We won’t do that, ever. And no one’s going to betray us so don’t get your hopes up. We are clean, squeaky clean and nothing you or your kind can conjure up can stick. We’re going to keep it that way. You and your kind are dirty and you don’t even realize it. But we do.
