Just Little Lies…But Lots of Them!

VOTE NO!
Martin “Marty” Case

no_smallMartin Case running for Coeymans Town Supervisor
In General, we feel that Martin Case will do to Coeymans what he and the mayor John Bruno have done to Ravena: They’ve made Ravena a ghost town, a slum and a dictatorship. We can just imagine Marty Case reaching over to kiss mayor Bruno’s hairy butt from Coeymans town hall. God forbid! Marty Case has closed his eyes to civil rights abuses in Ravena, has allowed the town to misuse taxpayer money to fund an illegal health and fitness center, has supported favoritism of every kind, including appointing Cathy Deluca to be the director of the illegal fitness center without giving other more qualified people a chance to apply. Marty Case is a full-time social studies teacher but has done nothing for youth in Ravena. In fact, Case has not spoken out against Nancy Warner’s and John Bruno’s harassing of the local kids and has done nothing to support the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activities Center. Case touts his many jobs in Ravena but doesn’t explain his plan to get Ravena out of the ugly condition it’s in. Instead, he claims he can work for Coeymans. Case is unrealistic, insincere, and a phoney. If you want Coeymans to turn into a big Ravena over night, he’s your man. If you want to get the crooks and the favoritism out of local government, VOTE NO! on Marty Case. (One question that we do have is this: Is Marty Case going to quit his teacher’s job to do the Coeymans supervisor’s job? Both are full-time positions, you know. Or which one is going to get short-changed? The kids or the town? Marty hasn’t answered that question yet, has he?)
And while we’re talking about deceit, Case is running on the promise to improve relations between Ravena and Coeymans. He’s had plenty of time to do that while on the Ravena village council but there he only backed mummy mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno and hatchet-woman Nancy Warner in badmouthing the Town of Coeymans. How’s he propose to improve relations as supervisor? By handing the town over to his godfather Ravena mayor John Bruno?
Case “supporters” , a couple of dozen or so, mostly from the village of Ravena, most all from the same family and right from the families of village employees, and all typewritten, no signatures, sent out an illiterate letter begging for votes. Read the deceptive, phoney pack of lies at Case Begs for Votes.

Marty Case is a Phoney!

no_smallThomas “Tom” Boehm running for Coeymans town council

VOTE NO! Thomas "Tom" Boehm

VOTE NO!
Thomas “Tom” Boehm

Tom Boehm is another blow-hard. He’s done nothing for Coeymans that can be called positive. He works for the Albany Chamber of Commerce but has not used that connection to do anything for Coeymans at all. Boehm is a nasty backstabber, as anyone in Coeymans town hall can tell you. He’s in tight with Coeymans dodo cop Darlington and his nest of thugs. Boehm is a saboteur, an obstacle creator, a wedge in the gears of good, clean, honest government in Coeymans. Boehm hooked up with Darlington recently to put on a dog and pony act to deceive the public into thinking that Coeymans is a drug hell and that recent drug busts are a credit to the Coeymans police department. It was all a smoke and mirrors act and the press gobbled it up because it was yet another scandal, another stain on Coeymans. We don’t need our elected officials to make fools of this community; we need people in elected office who will point out the good points of a community of hard working and honest citizens. We don’t need another elected official who is a liar and a member of the croney-club. We don’t need another politician in local government who does favors in return for favors (which is what he’s doing with Darlington). We won’t go on and on about Tom Boehm because we have already reported on Boehm the Bum on this blog several times. Just search “Boehm” for relevant articles. We certainly don’t need another blow-hard do-nothing in local government. Get rid of Boehm the Bum and get someone who will do something positive for the town of Coeymans! You have a choice, you know.

Tom Boehm is a Blowhard Phoney!

no_smallDawn Rogers running for Coeymans town council

VOTE NO! Dawn Rogers

VOTE NO!
Dawn Rogers

Dawn Rogers may be a lack-luster non-achiever on the Coeymans town board. But we think we know why. We think Tom Boehm has bullied her like he likes to bully the other women in Coeymans town hall. We think that Tom Boehm and Tom Dolan have pushed her and Peter Masti into a corner and have intimidated them to the point that they appear to be chair-warmers and nothing else. Don’t get us wrong, we can’t point out anything that Dawn Rogers has done that would credit her with anything worth mentioning but if voters get rid of Boehm and eventually Dolan, Rogers, if re-elected may be able to take a deep breath and actually do something. Given the opportunity, we’d replace her in a New-York-minute but if there’s no other alternative to Rogers, she’d be the lesser of evils to keep on the board. She’ll continue to be useless if Boehm stays but if Boehm stays the whole game is lost, anyway. Boehm is poison to public officials like Rogers and Masti. We say if Boehm goes, keep Rogers and let her prove herself. If there’s a candidate with some guts to replace Rogers, once Boehm is gone, we’d replace her.

Dawn Rogers is a … What is she, anyway?

no_smallMichelle Maddage running for Coeymans town clerk

VOTE NO! Michelle Maddage

VOTE NO!
Michelle Maddage

Michelle Maddage is the biggest joke on the ballott! The poor nitwit hasn’t a clue what her so-called friends, like Gregory Darlington, have done to her. If she’s that stupid, we certainly don’t need her anywhere near public office! But the biggest joke is this: Maddage has nothing to offer, no experience, no education, no record of public service, no résumé of management experience. The simple fact that she has allowed herself to be manipulated into becoming a public mockery is enough to disqualify her immediately. The main point, however, is that she is running against a very popular, very professional, very loved incumbent Town Clerk! Diane Millious has more than 24 years of experience in the clerk’s office. Yes, voters, that’s how much experience Diane Millious has! In fact, before she even ran for town clerk, she had already 10 years of experience as deputy town clerk. Maddage has allowed herself to become a twit; she’s too friendly with too many of the Coeymanazis to do the rest of us any good anyway. The fact that she has allowed herself to be made into a pathetic clown, not knowing her limitations, is clear proof she’s not the stuff we need in any public office, unless she continues to be an administrative assistant or a secretary.

Michelle Maddage is a Clown (thanks to her “friends”)!

Well, there you have it. Our reasons for recommending that town of Coeymans and  voters VOTE NO! on the above candidates. If our readers want to know more about many of these candidates, we have published quite a few articles about them in the past, and you can easily search this blog for those articles.

We are not telling our readers how to vote but only to be sure to vote and when voting, to know something about the people you are voting for. We publish stuff they don’t want you to know and you won’t find in their newspaper profiles. That’s for certain.

It is our policy to ask our readers to please comment on our articles. We also want to hear from the candidates themselves with any information or clarification that might make our comments less severe, or which will shed some light on some of the points we have made. All comments are welcome and, if on topic and civil, will be published.

VOTE YES for Dellisanti, Ruso, vanEtten, Russo, and Vadney

VOTE NO! for  Case, Boehm, Rogers, Maddage

Enough is Enough: Village of Ravena and Town of Coeymans Police Department to Be Served!

When Scoff-Laws are on the Street Ít’s Bad Enough

But When the Scoff-Laws are

Making the Laws or Enforcing Them It’s Downright Criminal!!!

But That’s What We Have Going On In The Village Of Ravena Village Offices And In The Town Of Coeymans Police Department And The Albany Democrat Machine Is Playing Right Along. But It Ain’t Over Til The Fat Lady Sings!

Village of Ravena and Town of Coeymans PD to be Served

Village of Ravena and Town of Coeymans PD to be Served

The village of Ravena and the Coeymans Police Department are playing a game of chicken with the New York State Public Officers Law Article 6 Sections 84-90, better known as the New York State Freedom of Information Law, or F.O.I.L. for short. They have been playing loosy goosey with the law for some years now, according to a number of local residents who have been trying for years to get the village of Ravena and the Coeymans Police Department to cough up documents and information that citizens have a right to see and know about. But Ravena and the Coeymans PD have been refusing to obey the law and have been making stupid excuses why they don’t produce the information citizens are demanding to see. Ravena and the Coeymans PD make all sorts of excuses why they don’t have to give you what you want but none of it’s going to work from now on. They are not above the law and the jig is up and they’re going to hear the old refrain, “You’ve been served!”

[Editor’s Note: It is important to make clear that the culprit in the town of Coeymans is the Coeymans Police Department, not the Town Clerk’s Office. Mr Gregory Darlington and his hand-picked Coeymans PD thugs are the problems—due largely to their ignorance and loyalty to their Coeymanazi godfathers—and are apparently indifferent to the principle of law and laws. The staff of the town of Coeymans Town Clerk’s office is non-partisan, professional, and knowlegeable of their duties and obligations to the public. The village of Ravena could learn a great deal from the Coeymans Clerk and her staff.]

We have been informed that Notices of Claim are going out to the village of Ravena, the Coeymans Police Department, and the RCS CSD putting them on notice that lawsuits are just around the corner and that they’d better be prepared to explain to the judge why they feel they don’t have to comply with New York’s laws.

PUBLIC OFFICERS LAW, ARTICLE 6 SECTIONS 84-90 FREEDOM OF INFORMATION LAW states:

The legislature hereby finds that a free society is maintained when government is responsive and responsible to the public, and when the public is aware of governmental actions. The more open a government is with its citizenry, the greater the understanding and participation of the public in government.

As state and local government services increase and public problems become more sophisticated and complex and therefore harder to solve, and with the resultant increase in revenues and expenditures, it is incumbent upon the state and its localities to extend public accountability wherever and whenever feasible.

The people’s right to know the process of governmental decision-making and to review the documents and statistics leading to determinations is basic to our society. Access to such information should not be thwarted by shrouding it with the cloak of secrecy or confidentiality. The legislature therefore declares that government is the public’s business and that the public, individually and collectively and represented by a free press, should have access to the records of government in accordance with the provisions of this article.

So why is the village of Ravena and the Coeymans PD so tight-lipped? And why is the RCS CSD so hard to get information out of? Well, we all know that there’s plenty to hide and if some of it gets out there, there’ll be no place for the crooks and criminals in town to hide. They’d rather take their chances giving citizens the runaround and bullying them into giving up. They’d rather take their chances hoping that citizens will despair and just say “Forgettaboutit!”

A Thing of the Past Make them Listen!

A Thing of the Past
Make them Listen!

But things have changed. We’ve been informed that the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans Police Department are to be served with Notices of Claim, the first step in the process of suing a municipality, putting them on notice that they’ve violated the law for too long and it’s time to pay up. The same applies to the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District where it seems the teachers, union reps, coaches, and board of education members like James Latter can violate confidentiality rules and the laws protecting student and family information but then turn around and refuse to release information when requested by parents and concerned citizens. Kinda looks like they’ve gotten things ass-end-backwards but we’re here to set the poor backward dolts right. And we’d like to hear from you and we’d like your help to do just that.

In fact, we’ve agreed to be a clearing house for Ravena, Coeymans, Selkirk, and New Baltimore residents who have had less-than-satisfactory experiences with the village of Ravena, the town of Coeymans Police Department, the town of New Baltimore, the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District offices or school administrators when trying to get information you have a right to have.

Now that the Notices of Claim are going out to the village of Ravena, the town of Coeymans Police Department and the RCS-CSD, we’d like to hear from you, residents, citizens, parents about your problems in getting local government to share information to which you have a right. If you’ve had problems, we want to know about them. We’d like to to tell us about your experiences and even send us your requests for information that have been denied or that have gotten “lost” by Ravena or the Coeymans PD or the RCS CSD. Help us eliminate this unlawful and unfair practice and write to us at rcs.confidential@gmail.com to leave your confidential information and story. No names or identifying details will be published so when you write to us at rcs.confidential@gmail.com you are sharing information that stays with us. We may contact you once we hear from you for clarification but no one else will see your messages. Or you can leave a public message here, on this blog, by leaving a comment.

One final word…

About the Committee on Open Government

The Committee on Open Government, is a unit housed in the Department of State that oversees and advises the government, public, and news media on Freedom of Information, Open Meetings, and Personal Privacy Protection Laws. The Committee offers guidance in response to phone inquiries, prepares written legal advisory opinions, and provides training to government and other interested groups. Recommendations to improve open government laws are offered in an annual report to Governor and the State Legislature.

The Committee is responsible for overseeing and advising with regard to the Freedom of Information Law, the Open Meetings Law and the Personal Privacy Protection Law (Public Officers Law, Articles 6, 7 and 6-A respectively). Staff of the Committee gives advice by telephone, email, written advisory opinions, and training classes conducted throughout the state. Advice is offered to the government, the public and the news media.

The Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) pertains to the public’s right to gain access to government records. See the FOIL Advisory Opinion Index. The Open Meetings Law (OML) concerns the public’s right to attend meetings of public bodies. See the OML Advisory Opinion Index. Both statutes are based upon a presumption of access and, since their initial enactment, have undergone significant changes based largely upon recommendations made by the Committee.

(Source: NYS Department of State, Committee on Open Government website at http://www.dos.ny.gov/coog/index.html)

Unfortunately, like most government offices, especially those headed by political tools like Robert J. Freeman of the Committee on Open Government, are all but useless when it comes to solving local problems. There’s always a glitch. Always a kink and nothing gets done.  Sure, you’ll get to read all the flowery statements and all of the empty promises on their websites. And you’ll get to read all the promising mission statements and empty promises but to be very realistic NOTHING IS GOING TO GET DONE UNLESS YOU MOVE YOUR ASSES AND DO IT!!! If you think that government has your interests in mind, whether it’s the village of Ravena, the Coeymans Police Department or the RCS CSD, you’re dead in the water, friends. Roadkill. And that’s the way they want to keep it.

Write to us with your story, your information, your demands and let’s get the information out to you. You have a right to have it. The law says so!

Get the Information You Want! You Have a Right to It! Stop the Frauds! The Editor

What’s the Village of Ravena Trying to Hide? Disclosure of Legal Fees.

As Many of Our Readers Know, Getting Disclosure from the Village of Ravena is As Easy As Finding  a Chicken’s Teeth! 

We Found'Em! Ravena Can Run But They Can't Hide!

We Found’Em!
Ravena Can Run But They Can’t Hide!

Let’s see: Ravena Village Clerk. Isn’t the office of the village clerk an elected office? Let’s ask Kristine Biernacki or Annette Demitraszek, they should know, right? Actually, anywhere else, the village clerk would probably be elected. But not in Ravena! Village law allows the mayor to appoint and the village board to approve the mayor’s appointment to the office of village of Ravena Clerk. Smell INCEST here?

Ravena Village Trustee Nancy Biscone-Warner. Isn’t the office of village trustee an elected office? Well, is it Nancy Biscone-Warner? And what about the office of the mayor of the village of Ravena, that’s an elected office, isn’t it? Well, isn’t it John Bruno? Well, aren’t public servants, elected officials supposed to serve the community? Aren’t they supposed to serve the best interests of the community who put them in office? Well, can anyone tell us why Demitraszek, Biscone-Warner, Bruno are doing their best to stonewall? What are they trying to hide? Wouldn’t you think they could come up with the documents and the figures for the village of Ravena’s legal expenses? It’s public information after all!

Committee for Open Government (NY Department of State!) and Robert J. Freeman.  Nancy Biscone-Warner is really working hard to keep it all under wraps, even upstaging the village clerk Demitraszek and passing on misinformation to a club member at the Committee for Open Government (now that’s a joke!), attorney Robert J. Freeman, who plays their cute little game with them. The incest club hard at work. Well Robert J. Freeman is a political appointee and has been occupying the executive director’s office of the Committee for Open Government for more than 36 years! Isn’t there something wrong with that? It sounds like somebody’s getting rewarded for some hefty favors, doesn’t it? Sorta like our own little nest of thieves rewarding Cathy Deluca with the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and the position of director. Right Nancy Biscone-Warner? Must be Nancy’s “Biscone” showing through. Right, Nancy? Stinks of raw sewerage from Albany all the way down to Ravena village hall. And you’re paying for it all…through the nose!

We Could Start With Ravena Village Offices

We Could Start With Ravena Village Offices

What’s theVillage of Ravena Trying to Hide?
The Request to Disclose Legal Fees Paid to Attorneys Between 2000 and 2013.

We have acquired documents served on the village of Ravena under the provisions of the New York State Freedom of Information Law (F.O.I.L.) that demand that the village of Ravena produce documents showing the amount and the recipient of legal fees and payments. In short the demand for disclosure and production of docments read:

“For the period of on or about January 1, 1990 to on or about January 1, 2013 all invoices, statements, requests for payment, expense reports, demands for payment, or vouchers, or such documents that otherwise authorize or show payment in an amount certain for legal services provided by the law firm or partners or associates of the law firm of Michael J. Biscone or the law firm of Biscone and Neri, or Louis Neri, Esq., or Michael J. Biscone, Esq., including but not by limitation any compensation for activity as a public official for or on behalf of the village of Ravena.”

Other parts of the F.O.I.L include similar requests for payments made to Joseph C. Rotello or any law firm of Joseph C. Rotello, or Joseph C. Rotello, Esq.; the law firm of John T. Biscone or any law firm of John T. Biscone, or John T. Biscone, Esq.; the law firm of Gregory Teresi or any law firm of Gregory Teresi, or Gregory Teresi, Esq., and further requests

“Please note that if the particulars (the attorney invoice number, the matter number, or the substance of the matter) of the service for which payment is requested is not stated in the voucher, this request also demands production of any document specifically identifying the specifics of the service (such as the attorney invoice) for which payment is being authorized but not the documents memorializing the matter itself.”

Having served the F.O.I.L demands, the requestor adds:

“Please find attached my demand for disclosure under the provisions of the NYS FOIL.
“Please contact me promptly if you have any questions relating to this demand.”
The first village of Ravena response received by the citizen making the request reads:

“Please be advised that your request for legal services payments does not reasonably describe records in our possession because our vouchers are fiiled in chronological order not by subject.” (Kristine Biernacki, Village Clerk)

Isn’t that interesting? The request for “legal services payments does not reasonably describe records” in the village of Ravena’s possession.”  And why? Because the village of Ravena’s filing system is in “chronological order not by subject.”  Now, we’re not talking the Borough of Manhattan, we’re talking about receipts and vouchers for legal services paid by the village of Ravena. But you see where this is going, don’t you?

The requestor replies:

“The FOIL is not required anticipate, to comply with or to allow for record-keeping idiosyncrasies of the custodian of the demanded records; the fact that you state that records particularized and specified in the FOIL might represent a “request for legal services payments [that] does not reasonably describe records in our possession” is clearly insufficient grounds for refusing to produce the documents demanded in the FOIL. The fact that the village of Ravena maintains its payment vouchers chronologically does not reasonably represent an absolute impediment or imppossibility of production whatsoever. It simply means that your search will necessarily have to be made chronologically in the absence of a more crossreferenced or alternative system of records keeping. That has no bearing whatsoever on the demands of the FOIL in question. [emphasis provided]
Not having heard a peep from the village of Ravena, the requestor writes:
“Can you please provide an update on the progress of your fulfillment of the production demand of the amended legal fees FOIL.”
Biernacki does the Dancing Turkey

Biernacki does the Dancing Turkey

Ravena village clerk Kristine Biernacki replies on March 19, 2013:
“I am extremely busy right now collecting for Village water/sewer bills and I am working alone now with a part time person,  so it will be some time before I am able to fulfill your request.”

Reading between the lines: I’m too busy right now collecting money for mayor Bruno to waste my time complying with state of New York laws.

The Requestor writes back:

“Thank you, Kris, for the heads-up. I appreciate it. 
“Please do keep me updated.”
Sounds friendly enough, right. First the village tries to get out of producing the records because they claim the request doesn’t reasonbly describe the records being requested. Now, they are saying that they can’t get to it because they’re collecting water and sewer bills. All along, the requestor is obviously patient and courteous.
 
So, along comes April 1, 2013, and the deadline for the village’s response is just days away, and the requestor contacts the village:
“I am following up on the production in response to my foil below. 
“Can you please provide a date certain when you expect to have the Village’s response ready?”
Are you getting the feeling somebody’s getting the run-around? I do!
So April 10, 2013, rolls around and the requestor has to write again:
“I need to know when I can expect the information demanded in the legal fees FOIL.
” I am willing to wait until Friday, April 12, 2013, 12:00 noon for the full response; after that, I’m afraid I shall have to presume that the village of Ravena is refusing to comply with a lawful demand, and I shall submit a complaint to the Office of the State Attorney General together with a request for investigation. 
“My last two emails have gone unanswered and I presume that to be the village’s attempt to avoid responding.”
So, on April 11, 2013, over a month after the request was made, and after several excuses already, Kris Biernacki writes:

“I am not able to provide you with most of your FOIL request regarding legal services payments due to the fact that they can not be reasonably obtained.  However, with respect to the records that can be accessed,  I will provide them to you by August 2, 2013.”

Flabbergasted at this incredible response, the requestor writes:

“Am I reading this correctly? Are you telling me (1) that you can’t provide the village of Ravena’s records for legal expenses? That they are cannot be “reasonably obtained?” and (2) that the records that can be accessed can be provided by “August 2, 2013?” Or is that a typo?”

Let the cat out of the bag!

Let the cat out of the bag!

Biernacki writes back, now she’s telling the requestor that Mr Robert Freeman of the Committee on Open Government (Yeah! Right!) is telling her:

Per Robert Freeman, Executive Director of the Committee on Open Government, your demand for the legal services payments dating back to 1990 is not a reasonable request.  The recent information that I can access will be provided to you by the date stated.

So, the requestor, patient and cooperative as always, writes:

“You could have said that earlier. I am amending the request to 2000-present.
” Notwithstanding the amendment, I have been extraordinarily patient in working with the village of Ravena, and agreed to extend on your request for more time because were involved with sewer and water billing. 
“In future and in the case of any future FOIL demand, I would expect the courtesy of a timely response and timely advice if you or your office find a request unclear or “unreasonable.” The handling of this request has been unacceptable.”
 In order to make it easier, the requestor knocks off 10 years and sits back waiting for the next excuse. He doesn’t have to wait long. Kris Biernacki writes:

“This is in receipt to your FOIL amendment.  Again, I will have the information to you on or before August 2, 2013.”

The village of Ravena is saying that it will need more than 114 days to find it’s records on payments made to lawyers. By now the requestor is reasonably irked and writes:

“That, I repeat, is outrageous.
” The FOIL continues as is and the village of Ravena is now in default of its affirmative obligations under the Freedom of Information Law.
” I expressly do not withdraw the FOIL in its currently amended form. The amendment was offered as a courtesy and to facilitate the village of Ravena’s compliance within the time provided by the Freedom of Information Law. “The law is explicit and clear, Mr Freedman does not have legislative authority. The times set forth in the law are explicit and clear, as are the disallowed “excuses” for failure to comply.
” I hereby demand immediate compliance or the village of Ravena’s explicit written refusal to comply.
 “You may want to pass this by Mr Biscone if he’s not too distracted by his sanctions battle. Yes, I’m watching that play out with considerable interest as I hope the local press is.”
 

 scam don't let them con youThis is incredible. It’s outrageous. It’s Ravena. By the way, Mr Robert J. Freeman is “executive director”, of the New York State Committee on Open Government. He’s been on the payroll of the NY Department of State since about 1974—a bit too long, in our honest opinion—Freeman has worked for the New York State Committee on Open Government since its creation in 1974 and was appointed executive director in 1976. He’s a bit too comfy in his little nest he’s created for himself.  Don’t you think there’s something bizarre about a state employee being executive director for more than 36 years?!? Isn’t that a little, corrupt?

Robert J. Freeman

Robert J. Freeman

So here you have this guy, Bob Freeman, who’s really firmly established in what we can reasonably call his little nest for more than 36 years, bloated with power, and making decisions on who gets what from government. A snotty little turd if there ever was one. And guess who’s talking to him about the disclosure of Ravena’s payments to lawyers (Teresi, Biscone, Rotello, Neri): Nancy Bicone-Warner, wife of village justice and ex-cop Harold “Hal” Warner. The same Nancy Biscone-Warner who is knee-deep in Cathy Deluca’s little scam, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. Yes, it’s the same Nancy Biscone-Warner who haunts the village of Ravena offices 25/7, who has everyone there by the short-and-curlies. Now she’s passing on inaccurate information to the Committee on Open Government, trying desperately to avoid having to disclose the village of Ravena’s payments to the local legal incest club.

We know that Nancy Warner was faster than lightning on the phone to Freeman trying to get out of producing documents in regard to another F.O.I.L. And Bob Freeman is playing right along with them. Committee on Open Government? Guess again! Apparently it’s a committee of one: Bob Freeman.

Do you expect anything different out of Albany, the cesspool of democrat corruption. Freeman’s a lawyer. No doubt with connections with Joe Rotello, a clerk  in the Court of Appeals, the Teresis, Ravena shyster Greg Teresi and dirty old dad, Joe Teresi on the NYS Supreme Court, Michael Biscone in Ravena, theyve all got their hands in the cash-box called the village of Ravena. And watchdog gatekeeper Nancy Biscone-Warner ain’t letting anything get by her to upset the little party boat they have floating in taxpayer cash. And don’t expect any help from the Albany County DA, P. David Soares. He likes to party, too.
 
Just a note: The town of Coeymans responded to the very same F.O.I.L. within a couple of days. Now, do you think something’s up in the village of Ravena? Why are they fighting tooth-and-nail to avoid coming up with those documents? Do you think there’s something they don’t want residents to know. Maybe they’re scared shiteless that if you get it, we’ll see it. Do ya think?
 

This Just Adds Another Nail to Ravena’s Coffin. The Village of Ravena Should Be Eliminated and Combined with the Hamlet of Coeymans, Administered by the Town of Coeymans.

Smiling Piggy Wins in the End

Don’t hold it against Kristine Biernacki or Annette Demitraszek. They just do as they’re told— like good little soldiers. Imagine if they make waves or use a village first-class postage stamp on a private mail item, they’re on the street. Mummy mayor John Bruno and hatchet-woman Nancy Biscone-Warner don’t like people with brains (shows them both up). Ravena Mayor John T. Bruno and Nancy Biscone-Warner apparently don’t take prisoners, they just take advantage.

Business as Usual in Ravena: Violation of Constitutional Rights!

In 2009, the Ravena News Herald Reported that Michael Biscone Attempted to Limit Free Speech in Ravena

Village of Ravena, Bruno, Biscone, Deluca they're Burning Our Constitution!

Village of Ravena, Bruno, Biscone, Deluca
They’re Burning Our Constitution!

Yes, you read correctly. In an article by Laurie Lynn printed on the front page of the Ravena News Herald in its May 7, 2009, edition: “Ravena attorney limits free speech.” But that shouldn’t surprise anyone who has eyes to see and ears to hear.

The article describes Michael Biscone as “a lawyer for the village of Ravena” and describes the village’s and Biscone’s attempts to “illegally restrict public comments at its meetings.” According to a letter from “village attorney Michael Biscone, ” persons wanting to comment publicly “must give the board…an outline of what they plan to say” before the meeting!”

It shouldn’t be surprising that the Coeymans town attorney at the time, David Wukitsch,  tells the News Herald that Biscone’s letter applies “two different rules to public participation.” Now that’s something really new for Ravena and RCS, isn’t it? Double standards? Two different rules?

The article goes on to quote Robert Freeman, executive director of the New York Committee on Open Government, “It is against the law to discriminate between who may speak at public meetings and who may not.”

Here’s another suprise for you: The reporter writes that the policy outlined in the letter was neither discussed nor brought to a vote during an open public meeting. Of course, Michael Biscone tries to wiggle his way out of that one, too. According to Biscone he wrote the letter based on a “request” made by the “board.”

Here’s where we have a problem with Biscone’s silly excuse. First of all, it sounds like the one about “the devil made me do it!” Biscone is an attorney licensed to practice law in New York. As far as we know, New York is located in the United States of America, and in the good ol’ USA the Constitution and its Amendments are the highest law of the land. And don’t law schools teach constituional law? Aren’t attorneys expected to know about the Bill of Rights? Free speech, free assembly, all of that stuff? Apparently Biscone never heard of all that.

Ever Heard of This?

Hey, Biscone!
Ever Heard of This?

Here’s another one for you to toss about: Biscone at the time was village attorney. He was the official legal advisor to the village of Ravena on legal issues. Right? So if the village of Ravena wanted something done Biscone was supposed to advise them whether it would be legal or illegal. Right? Why didn’t Biscone tell the “board” who “requested” him to write up the gag policy, that it was illegal? Was it because Biscone was ignorant or just crooked and saw an opportunity to take advantage, as he normally does, of the Ravena village board, its mummy mayor, John Bruno, and the people of the district? No, Mikey, you can’t get off the hook so easily. If this blog were around then you’d probably be cleaning toilets instead of practicing your perverse form of law!

The law is clear: It is not legal for three or more board members to conduct government business in private (Freeman, New York Committee on Open Government). According to Freeman: “If indeed, a majority of the board discussed this issue…to comply with the law, the discussion should have occurred in public.”

Does this remind anyone of the secret meetings between Nancy Warner, John Bruno and Martin Case [?] (On information and belief, we believe Cathy Deluca was present, too.) when the Ravena Health and Fitness Center used equipment was purchased for more than $40,000 of taxpayer money from Robert “Bob” Fisk (a Persico), Rocco Persico’s (Ravena village trustee) cousin, and Jose Bruno handled the sale (and the property rental to the RC Teen Center). The meeting alone was an illegal meeting! And it’s also true of the way the Ravena Health and Fitness Center was created! No public meetings. No minutes. No public discussion. Citizens were told what was going to be done, not asked!

Now, here’s Ravena mayor John Bruno’s usual “I didn’t know” response (Bruno used the same claim of ignorance when the state found serious accounting errors in the village of Ravena bookkeeping):

“Village mayor John Bruno said…that he knew Biscone was sending a letter. He said he did not review the contents before it was mailed. He said he was not sure whether or not the other board members knew of the letter before it was sent.”

What started all of this? Funny you should ask. Well, as we’ve reported on a number of occasions Ravena’s mummy mayor John Bruno and his sockpuppets, the Ravena village trustees, has problems with the town of Coeymans. This time it was about sewer services and who pays what. So, Laverne “Larry” Conrad, building inspector and code enforcement officer for the town of Coeymans, got in a 35-minute “interchange” during a village board meeting with mayor Bruno.

According to Conrad:

“I got tired of hearing the information being improperly broadcast at village board meetings…I was just trying to clarify the numbers. They’ve been all over the place with numbers.”

According to the News Herald, “Biscone’s…letter” letter to Coeymans town supervisor at the time, R. Hotaling, “expressed some ‘significant concern’about Conrad’s appearance.”

Here’s how Biscone worded his illegal demand on behalf of the Ravena village board:

“Please understand that in the future, a representative of the town government will not be recognized to speak at a village public meeting unless that individual has prior approval from the board and an outline is presented to the board in advance of the contents of that individual’s concerns.” [our emphasis]

Biscone continues in that April 23, 2009, letter:

“I am advised by the village board that this rule will apply, not only to representatives of the town government, but to any individual who is not a village resident.” [our emphasis]

This is incredible. This is scandalous. It’s an outrage that Michael Biscone or any attorney licensed to practice law in New York state or anywhere in the United States could pen such illegal, unlawful, un-American rubbish and not find himself in front of a disciplinary board getting his license suspended! It’s even more scandalous and outrageous to have to admit that this shyster was Ravena village attorney at the time [and continues to work very closely with the village board], and at board meetings was constantly whispering something into Bruno’s hairy ears.

It’s even more idiotic that Ravena allows its mummy mayor to get away with his moronic excuse, “I didn’t know…” What in hell is he mayor for? The article by NH reporter Lynn and even the Biscone letter states that it was the “village board,” who requested him to write the rule, despite its obvious illegality. The board is made up of the trustees and the mayor! The exchange allegedly giving rise to the rule was between Larry Conrad and mayor John Bruno! Bruno’s either senile or a liar. More likely he’s a senile liar!

,big>Public Places and Public Meetings Are Free Speech Zones

Public Places & Public Meetings Are Free Speech Zones

The article quotes Coeymans town board member Thomas Boehm as saying, “the village board members are ” just further isolating themselves’…’they hide behind their attorney.” Never were truer words spoken.

Boehm is further quoted as saying “The village is going against the democratic principles our country is based on…[t]hey’re limiting the ability of the public to communicate ideas and thoughts.”

And Larry Conrad, an official of the town of Coeymans:

“He’s [Biscone, Bruno] not stopping me from coming…What was his purpose–to censor my rights as a person and my rights to speak? If they remove me from a meeting for just being there, there will be a lawsuit, guaranteed. And Michael Biscone won’t be representing me.”

That’s really cute, Larry, because the article also notes that Michael Biscone was not only Ravena village attorney, he was [and isn’t he still?] your “personal lawyer”!

thank-you card+pen

Special thanks go to Laurie Lynn, the reporter who wrote the 2009 article for the News Herald, and a very special friend who provided us with the entire print issue of the May 7, 2009, News Herald article quoted above.

Deluca

Deluca

This entire issue is very, very timely considering the fact that papers were recently served on the village of Ravena for violations of a citizen’s rights by Cathy Deluca, director of the illegal and unlawfully equipped and created Ravena Health and Fitness Center. The Coeymans Police Department is also investigating criminal charges of harassment filed by the abused citizen against Deluca.

There is also the issue of the Ravena Shop’n Save having prevented two local citizens from exercising their rights of free expressive activity and lawful political activity in the public space near the Shop’n Save. Shop’n Save management demanded that they stop their activity, an activity that is explicitly protected by the First Amendment, and asked them to leave. We have agreed to assist those two citizens in putting together their lawsuit.

It’s up to us to ensure that our Constitutional Rights are not violated by our local public officials and their lackeys. It’s time to wake up and shake things up!

You can read and download the minutes of the April 27, 2009, town of Coeymans board meeting at which the Biscone letter was read into the record and discussed by the Coeymans town board. The entire text of the Biscone letter is reproduced in those minutes. It’s an interesting read if you want to know how some of your Coeymans town board members feel about the relationship between the town of Coeymans and the village of Ravena. Click this link Minutes,  then click the Download button. The minutes should appear on your screen for reading or downloading. The discussion of the Biscone letter starts on about page 22.

Steal My Rights, Go to Jail!

Ravena Continues Criminally Irresponsible Financial Neglect

The Village of Ravena Publishes the Proposed 2013-14 Budget: $115,500 for the Village Fitness Center;
Cathy Deluca to be Director making $30,000+.

Illegal, Exclusive, Expensive

Illegal, Exclusive, Expensive

Do the math: If there are 500 households in Ravena, the fitness outfit will cost each and every household at least $300.00 in 2013-2014!

Bruno-Warner-Deluca BurningYour Money

Bruno-Warner-Deluca BurningYour Money

The Village of Ravena Refuses to Disclose Legal Fees
Financial Irresponsibility Continues in the Village

Village Mayor John T. Bruno is Still Clueless

Mayor John T. Bruno

Mayor John T. Bruno

In a Times Union article following the Office of the NYS Comptroller’s audit of the village of Ravena, ” Audit slams Ravena board. Village officials fail to monitor finances, comptroller warns,” we read:

The Village Board has little control over finances…The audit revealed scant oversight by the board and said the village treasurer has almost exclusive control over finances…It found that the board is not aware of purchases, does not monitor the actual cost of operations versus the budgeted cost, does not approve budget transfers, did not audit the treasurer’s records or the justice court and filed annual financial reports late…
None of the transfers were approved by the board, the audit said… The audit called the village’s purchasing policy outdated, said the policy is not being followed and the board is not monitoring purchases… Two out of three department heads said they were unaware the village had a purchasing policy, and in reviewing claims, a substantial portion of them did not have proper documentation attached…”The mayor stated that the board was not aware that audits of the treasurer’s and the justice court’s records were required to be completed,” the audit said.

More than thirty years on the village payroll and Mayor John T. Bruno still hasn’t got a clue. ‘What, records? Us, keep records? Nah! I don’t know nothin’! Get outta here!”

And Nancy Biscone-Warner, wife of village justice Harold “Hal” Warner, has been treasurer for more than 20 years, and has been re-elected to the position by dumbass voters (probably the Brunos, Biscones, Persicos, Albanos, and a handful of Coeymanazis were enough to vote her in). Now she’s haunting the corridors of village hall 25/7. Why are the village Ravena, NY, reading reports of such incompetence and voting these clowns back into office?!? We don’t get it!!! Shouldn’t these walking-dead from the past be exorcised or something?

Nancy Warner Still Haunts Village Hall

Nancy Warner Still Haunts Village Hall

This blog has reported extensively on the village of Ravena’s backroom deals to evict the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Community Library and create the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. The planning for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center was business as usual in the village of Ravena: it was done secretly. No public hearings, no public comment. Then the village of Ravena went ahead and purchased about $40,000 in used health club equipment from another insider. The $40 grand came out of the public treasury. Again no public hearings or inputs.

We published our prediction that the Ravena-Coeymans Incest Club, the Brunos, Biscones, Warners, Delucas would be setting up a cozy little private spa for themselves and their croneys, as well as providing a plum position for one of their own. Well, as usual our prediction is correct.
The proposed village of Ravena budget is out and here are the figures for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, which already has its own e-mail and designer logo, again a done deal behind closed doors.

Cathy Long-Deluca

Cathy Long-Deluca

As we predicted, Cathy Deluca has been given the position of fitness center director at a cool salary of $30,000. Is that being paid out of taxpayer monies? Yes! Does it include benefits that not many of us are likely to see? Yes! Is this an insider pick? Yes!

Actually, Cathy Deluca does have some fitness center mismanagement experience. She managed a fitness center when she was still Cathy Long. Remember the fitness center on Main Street? The one that failed?

So let’s have a look at the “budget officers estimates” of what the fitness center is going to cost (the figure below is taken directly out of the proposed budget):

7180 Fitness Center  
130 Director (Cathy Deluca) 30,000.00
151 Hourly Employees 30,000.00
290 Equipment 30,000.00
424 Telephone 500.00
429 Repairsto Equipment 20,000.00
435 Outside Services 2,200.00
436 Unclassified 3,000.00

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center is Estimated to Cost Ravena Residents $115,500 in 2013-14. Can you afford that?

We’d like you to have a close look at item s 290 Equipment and 429 Repairs to Equipment. The village plans to spend another $30,000 on equipment for this misconceived misuse of public money. But what’s really irking us is that they’re budgeting another $20,000 for repairing equipment. They just bought about $40,000 in used equipment, and now they’re planning to spend another $20,000 repairing it. (Do the math: $60,000 in junk, scrap!) Our question is obvious: Who got the kickbacks?

There’s no business plan or anything like planning so the other $5,200 for items 435 Outside Services and 436 Unclassified are still mysteries. But let the imagination go wild on this one!

multicolor rhfcWhile I do not generally advocate taking local dollars out of the community, I must admit that nothing, nothing that the village of Ravena can do can even come close to the opportunities in Glenmont, just down the road with Planet Fitness and it’s beautiful facility, including changing rooms, tanning, instructors, events, sanitation, etc. And all at a ridiculously reasonable price and a variety of plans. But then, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center with all of its misleading hype, is not for you or me, it’s for the Ravena-Coeymans in-crowd.

Once the Coeymanazi bunch makes the Ravena Health and Fitness Center its watering hole, do you think the rest of us will be welcome? Guess again!

BigFatDancingDeluca_sm

How comfortable will you feel with Jerry Dirty-Hands Deluca behind you?

So, cruising down Main Street in Ravena we can take in the Bruno legacy as we approach a centennial: empty storefronts and empty residential buildings. But Ravena has $115,500 dollars in the 2013-14 budget for a fitness center. Go figure!

Moreover, wouldn’t it have been more responsible to have budgeted that $150,000 to support say the RC Teen Center’s programs for the benefit of youth, or perhaps to invested some of it in the RCS Community Library programs, after all the Library is in the geographical territory of the village of Ravena, or maybe some billing software to keep village accounts, especially water and sewer billings, honest. Speaking of water and sewer, how can the village board of Ravena in good conscience budget $150,000 for a health and fitness center of dubious merit, while neglecting the necessary repair of a 100-year old village sewer and drainage system! It’s criminal and Mayor John T. Bruno and his lunatic band of clowns William Bailey, Rocco Persico, Martin Case, and Nancy Biscone-Warner need to do some jail time with co-conspirators Cathy Long-Deluca and Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca!

Lady-Kiss-Hips

Cathy D.: “Gimme a health-club, Mayor Johny!”

We’d also like to remind our readers that the Bruno-Warner-Deluca fitness scam is also at the expense of a community institution, the RCS Community library. The library is funded by tax dollars that property owners in the town of Coeymans pay. You voted on its budget at the same time you voted for the RCS central school district budget, and the members of the RCS school board. The RCS Community Library serves residents of two counties as a result of the funding (actually the town of Coeymans (Albany County) and part of the town of New Baltimore (Greene County). In other words, the RCS Community Library is a publicly funded institution that serves the entire RCS CSD region, plus. The village of Ravena has done everything possible to make the library unwelcome, including raising its rent by an additional $600. That’s $600 of your money.

One of the reasons the RCS Community Library could not leave its location in the Ravena village building is because D. Persico, board member Rocco Persico’s cousin, didn’t have the money to finish the required renovations, and had to qualify for a loan. Normally, when a contractor renegs on a commitment, there are penalties, like Donnie, you’ve got to eat the rent hike? But that’s not how business is done in Ravena-Coeymans, especially in the Incest Club. Rather than impose penalties on the contractor-board-member-cousin who doesn’t have the money to finish the job, the village of Ravena raises the library’s rent by $600!

This situation has to be investigated and we’ll be publishing forms for residents to fill in and cover letters that can be used for submitting complaints to the Office of the State Comptroller and to the Office of the Attorney General, demanding that the operations in the village of Ravena be investigated.

Rocco Persico

Rocco Persico

Isn’t it odd that Rocco Persico is a psychologist on the payroll of the RCS school district and he’s on the village of Ravena board. I really have to ask myself what kind of psychologist Persico is if he’s on the Ravena board and this crazy shite still goes on? Maybe that’s why the high-school kids are so whacked out.


And the Financial Irresponsibility and Criminally Poor Recordkeeping Goes On and On and On…
What is Ravena Shelling Out for Legal Fees?
In Other Words:
What is the Michael Biscone Racket Being Paid?

FOIL
A Local Resident Filed a Demand for Production and Disclosure of the Village of Ravena’s Legal Expenditures. The demand was made under the New York State Freedom of Information Act, which requires public entities–with the exception of courts–to produce and disclose all public access information within a specific period of time.

§84. Legislative declaration. The legislature hereby finds that a free society is maintained when government is responsive and responsible to the public, and when the public is aware of governmental actions. The more open a government is with its citizenry, the greater the understanding and participation of the public in government.

*****

The people’s right to know the process of governmental decision-making and to review the documents and statistics leading to determinations is basic to our society. Access to such information should not be thwarted by shrouding it with the cloak of secrecy or confidentiality. The legislature therefore declares that government is the public’s business and that the public, individually and collectively and represented by a free press, should have access to the records of government in accordance with the provisions of this article.

Yes, every one of us has the right to demand disclosure of information from our government and public agencies. The government and its agencies work for you. Don’t let them forget that fact!

There are laws, the Freedom of Information Law, for example, that lay down the who, what, where, how, and when. And you should know about all of this. For example:

§89. General provisions relating to access to records; certain cases. 3. (a) Each entity subject to the provisions of this article, within five business days of the receipt of a written request for a record reasonably described, shall make such record available to the person requesting it, deny such request in writing or furnish a written acknowledgment of the receipt of such request and a statement of the approximate date, which shall be reasonable under the circumstances of the request, when such request will be granted or denied, including, where appropriate, a statement that access to the record will be determined in accordance with subdivision five of this section. An agency shall not deny a request on the basis that the request is voluminous or that locating or reviewing the requested records or providing the requested copies is burdensome because the agency lacks sufficient staffing or on any other basis if the agency may engage an outside professional service to provide copying, programming or other services required to provide the copy, the costs of which the agency may recover pursuant to paragraph (c) of subdivision one of section eighty-seven of this article.

And so far, the village of Ravena (and the RCS CSD district offices, Dr McCartney. But more on this later.) have obstinately broken the law!

It seems a local resident submitted a demand for disclosure of the village of Ravena’s legal fees, because of the observation that wherever you look there’s either a Biscone or a Teresi doing legal work for the village, the town, private individual, on their own. And given the NYS Comptroller’s observation that nobody seems to know who’s doing what or where the money’s going, it apparently seemed like a good idea to get the official word. Normally, a FOIL works…unless there’s something to hide.

Well, the resident got the runaround and then it was “we need more time because we’re mailing out sewer and water bills.” OK . Call him stupid, but the resident agreed to give them more time. And then…SILENCE. He contacted the village and the clerk tells him that the request is unreasonable, that she does not have access to the records, what she does have she’ll produce by August 2, 2013. WTF! Read the law (especially the parts quoted above)!

For all we have to say about the town of Coeymans, who apparently got the same request at the same time, the Coeymans town clerk responded in a matter of days! Why is it that Ravena needs almost 6 months from the time the FOIL was submitted to the time the village clerk expects to have the records? No way, José!  Well, maybe they don’t have any records. Maybe they don’t want to surrender the records. Maybe someone doesn’t want the records public. Maybe all of the above.

So now the village of Ravena has a choice: either get the documents to the resident or face the consequences. Now we’re on the case and we’ll see it right on through to the Office of the Comptroller and the Office of the Attorney General. And we know of quite a few other residents who’ll be more than happy to join the movement.

Well, dear readers, the law is the law for you and me, and for the village of Ravena. The village of Ravena is now breaking the law and it’s time to go public and demand that the Office of the State Comptroller and the State Attorney General do some poking around. Where are the records, Ravena?

Actually, we’ve hear that Michael Biscone is having his own problems these days. It seems he’s allegedly being sanctioned by the court for some sort of misconduct. We’re trying to lay our hands on the papers and will publish as soon as we can find out the facts. A former partner of Biscone’s, Joe  Rotello, is now in the Appellate Division, the New York State Unified Court System division that is responsible for disciplining attorneys. We just want all concerned to know that we know and that we’ll be watching for any messing around. May Biscone get what’s coming to him!

Albany Times Union Publishes Sequel to Our Articles!

We’ve Said It So Many Times Before! And It’s Still True As It Ever Was!

Well, Maybe Not New News...Just Old News.

Well, Maybe Not New News…Just Old News.

 We Scoop the Albany Times Union (owned by the Hearst Corportation) and Local Comatose Rags by Publishing Solid Facts Way Before the Times Useless and the Hudson Catskill Newspapers (a division of Johnson Newspapers Corp.)

The Albany Times Union’s Fred Lebron Follows Our Lead And Writes on Public Corruption and Schools! But it’s the Times Useless’ undisguised usual finger-pointing, doom-and-gloom, anxiety- and fear-mongering. Factoids. Why do they even bother?

You're Burning Down Your Own Houses.

You’re Burning Down Your Own Houses.

In our recent articles on this blog we pointed out the major obstacles to making life livable in this community and in the bigger picture.  This blog actually started back in May 2012, when we had to come out and draw the public’s attention to the corruption that was going on in the schools, especially what was going on in the RCS central school district budget voting and the deception that was created by the RCS CSD teachers association, its president, double-dipping, bully-mongering, loose-lipped teacher Matt “the Mutt” Miller, the idiot interim superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, a teachers union lackey, and the teachers clique on the RCS CSD board of education, Alice Whalen, Howard “Bray” Engel, James Latter,  former member Josephine Tracey-O’Connor of “He Called Me Fat” fame, and former member Tracey Traver, together with the Coeymanazi mob under the direction of Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca, assisted by his partner, Cathy Deluca, and their minions.

Dumb-as-Dirt David Soares

Dumb-as-Dirt David Soares

And we’ve courageously gone after that scandal-looking-for-a-place-to-happen,  P[udenda] David Soares, the renegade Albany County District Attorney, the disgrace of a chief county law enforcement officer, Soares, when he’s not getting a reprimand by federal judges, or hes not dipping his pen[is] into company ink[wells], he’s getting his inkwells special appointments, or simply maliciously prosecuting local residents. Pundenda-obsessed Dave is merely a tool of the machine; he’s to stupid for anything else and too corrupt and immoral (read: amoral) for any other place. A graduate of the boys’ club called Albany Law School, he’s ethnic, and a West African immigrant, he’s in like flint as the “token” in the in-appearance-only ultra-liberal Albany political machine (when it comes to pandering for votes) as long as he kisses his handler’s mechanically conservative asses (the spirit of Erastus Corning delights). Soares has no self-esteem and no morals so he’ll do just about anything…or anyone. He’s gotten his share of space on this blog, too.

We followed the harassment and conspiracy that was hatched to malign board of education members by the Coeymanazis, no doubt with the assistance of the teachers association and the backing of the New York State United Teachers union, NYSUT.

As residents and citizens started to see the light and the writing on the wall, we moved on to uncovering corruption and the crooks in the RCS communities, most conspicuously the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans, especially the Coeymans Police Department. There was plenty of scandal to go a long way, and it kept us busy for a year reporting on the truth while the Albany Times Union and its junk journalists concentrated on partisan (read Coeymanazi) low-life scandal reporting, obviously fed rubbish by the local Coeymanazis and their keepers in Albany.

His Honor, the Mayor.John Bruno is Mayor of Ravena, NY.

His Honor, the Mayor.
John Bruno is Mayor of Ravena, NY.

And then there’s Ravena. What would Ravena be without a nest of corruption housed in the village hall. What would Ravena be without a senile ill-tempered godfather in Depend®, mayor John Bruno,  presiding over his court of blathering inbred Bruno, Persico, Biscone, Albano dwarves, the Delucas and the Warrens cowing and bowing to get their carrion-toxic talons into anything of value. We covered their latest larceny: the Bruno-Deluca-Warren Memorial Fitness Center and their feeble and misguided attempts to oust the RCS Community Library so that Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warren could prance and pose in their “own” fitness club–or is it a dairy farm–they “purchased” with Ravena taxpayer money to the tune of $40 grand!

eat-more-brainsYes! We were then and continue to be the bastions of Truth in this community while the Albany Times Union (a.k.a. Times Useless), the Ravena News Herald, and other local rags, including the local television sharks on  News Channel 10, News Channel 6, and News Channel 13 continued their tabloid journalism licking at the stale blood drawn by the Coeymanazi ambushes, and writing award-winning pornographic fiction based (almost) on slightly true facts creatively altered and embellished, but a final version of “facts” a.k.a. factoids. When they weren’t doing the Coeymanazi’s dirty work in print, they were days, even weeks late on the so-called stone-dead-cold “stories”, and stories they were, most of the time following on the heels of articles already posted on this blog. And you pay for the stale pulp fiction reported in that mass of advertising called  the Albany Times Union or that major collection of public notices called the Ravena News Herald. I just don’t get it.

Those of you who have been regular readers and who have signed up for e-mail notification of new articles and comments (You can follow this blog by clicking on FOLLOW ME in the upper right margin and entering your e-mail.)  Are very well-informed about the goings-on beneath the surface on the board of education, in the schools, and in the village and town boards.

More recently we published our observations about the Coeymans town board’s outrageous decision to award MidHudson Cablevision a 15-year exclusive contract for cable and Internet services (read Ravena-Coeymans: The Land of Goofy!) and followed that article with a sequel and update on that shameful betrayal by the Coeymans town board of residents in the town of Coeymans (read Sequel to “Land of Goofy”).

We drew attention to the fanatical and villainous presentation by John Anthony in the recent presentation that totally distorted the doctrine of “sustainable development,” striking fear and anxiety in an already paranoid local population. We tore that stupid propaganda a part in our article, Need More Unconstructive Anxiety?, and cast shame and disgrace on the organizers for having imposed such arrogant and misinformation propaganda on local citizens and voters!

Again, in an idiotic article degrading the pages of the already base Ravena News Herald by Bryan Rowzee that centered on local Coeymanazi building inspector Laverne “Larry” Conrad, while misquoting American poet laureate, Robert Frost, and quoting Laverne Conrad.

You may remember Laverne “Larry” Conrad as  part of the comedy duo, “Laverne and Surly“, who appear regularly on the Coeymans Comedy Channel (MidHudson Cablevision’s public access channel 11), featuring cameos by Tarty Tom Dolan, BoboCop Jerry Deluca, DodoCop Gregory Darlington, Bobo and Dodo doing their ” Wild West Keystone Cops” clown act, the Surly Siblings (Stephen Flack, Thomas “Tom” Dolan of MidHudson Cable fame, Peter Masti, Thomas Boehm, Dawn Rogers) as well as the Juggling Justices Gregory Dardiani and Harold “Hal” Warren who dress up as judges and make a mockery of the law (assisted by evil shyster clowns Gregory Teresi and Michael J. Biscone).

Well, in that News Herald article, Rowzee quotes Frost incorrectly and makes the mistake of quoting Laverne “Larry” Conrad. Read our article at Coeymanazi Building Inspector Conrad and you’ll get a good laugh…or a good cry.

Our article on the reverse Robin Hood shell game being played by Washington with taxpayer money focused on the reality of the misuse of the American taxpayer and how the feds take the food from your mouths to pay for the foor placed in the mouths of dictators and revolutionaries (covertely, of course) private jets of foreign government officials.
Waxing Whimsical: Why the US and You Have no $$$ ! tells the true story of why our communities, businesses, schools, and communities are in such dire straits.

And now Democrat Sec’ty of State Kerry and King Obama bin Ladin are prepping us to get involved in the Syrian conflict! More taxpayer $$$BILLIONS$$$ hemorrhaging out of the country to support causes of little or no interest to the Coeymans or Selkirk resident–or to anyone with any serious interest in day-to-day survival! When are you going to say STOP! In the meantime, you can continue collecting empty beer cans à la Cathy Deluca to send your kids on school field trips, while she’s posing for mayor Bruno in their “community” fitness center with Nancy Warner–at a cost of more than $40 grand of your tax money, plus their salaries! Disgusting!

Now back to the Albany Times Union, Fred Lebrun, and the Sequel to Articles on this blog…

A reader drew our attention to an article that appeared in the Albany Times Union on Sunday, February 24, 2013, and written by Fred Lebrun, a fossil writer for the Albany Times Useless who occasionally pops up with an opinion. The article is entitled: LeBrun: Tax cap denies a ‘sound, basic’ education system and is basically a commentary (now you know how much fact it contains).

We’ll just post a couple of quotes from the article with some short comments, and you can make the rest of the connections and draw your own conclusions.

The governor’s beloved 2 percent tax cap was challenged in a lawsuit filed by the New York State United Teachers union in state Supreme Court in Albany. The suit offers multiple arguments why the tax cap is unconstitutional, asserting that it locks in unequal funding between have- and have-not school districts across the state, ”while pushing many school districts to the brink of educational and financial insolvency,” in the words of NYSUT President Dick Iannuzzi. [my emphasis]nysut

 Right away, you should see red: our beloved special interest, rape the taxpayer organization, the New York State United Teachers, NYSUT, godparents of our very own teachers union lackey, Matt “the Mutt” Miller, is bringing the suit. Now you know it’s not good news for the taxpayer no matter what Lebrun says. But you must already know what’s coming next: doom, gloom, suspicion, dark days ahead, you’re losing your schools, your children are going to be eaten by aliens, etc. You know, the same-old-same-old whenever NYSUT raises its double-dealing-double-dipping head.

It is irrefutable that the effect of the incomplete tax cap passed in June 2011, while politically popular and a contributor to the governor’s high standing, has been disastrous for school districts and local governments.

Your tax dollars at work.

Your tax dollars at work.

That self-destructive attitude and the greed of the teachers union and its members, the teachers, are what’s killing the districts. Millions are being spent on the mismanaged, wasteful money pits we call schools that are turning out idiots at graduation. Why? Because the majority of parents and taxpayers are indifferent and don’t get involved with how their districts are managed or how their elected officials in Albany and Washington are turning their backs on their communities.

Just read some of the articles on this blog and you’ll know too well why our schools and local governments are turning into liquid waste.

Sadly, we are watching a catastrophe unfold that will deeply affect many of our children at their most vulnerable ages, and which will have consequences for the rest of their lives.

The State Education Department has warned that between 100 and 200 school districts will be insolvent within two years.

Mr "Fred-in-a-Funk" LebrunWrites on Our Schools. DUH!

Mr “Fred-in-a-Funk” Lebrun
Writes on Our Schools.
DUH!

Lebrun must have been asleep for the last several years! The catastrophe has been unfolding for some time now, Mr Lebrun. We’re right in the epicenter of it. DUH! Yes, Mr Lebrun, we are all aware of that fact but not many of our readers, sadly, have the guts or the balls to open their eyes, tighten their belts, and turn on the lights to see the writing on the wall. Again, read our articles and learn why the schools suck, why the kids are idiots, why the board of education is stymied in getting anything really effective done with the teachers special interests working against them, and why the local communities are drowning in their own raw sewerage with Coeymanazis like the town of Coeymans board, the local Coeymanazi police force, and the Coeymanazis on the street doing everything they can to have it their way or no way. Do you really think that business want to operate in a backwoods, Neanderthal community that is so business-unfriendly, corrupt, or that families want to live like that. Look around you and watch the exodus!

The multi-year highway to insolvency for many of them will be already littered with discarded teachers and administrators, dropped programs and advanced placement courses required for college admission, and cuts, cuts and more cuts impacting the core teaching mission.

Look, this didn’t happen over night, people! And it’s not going to get cured over night, either. What Lebrun is writing is crap, to be very honest. He, like so many others, are doing your bloody thinking for your and framing your life according to their views! YOU NEED TO DO YOUR OWN THINKING. BUT FIRST YOU HAVE TO GET BACK TO REALITY!

Reality.

Reality.

Look, you bunch of lemmings: You can’t keep taking without putting back in, people!

  • Do you drive your car without replacing the fuel used? Of course not. You’d be stuck in nowhere in no time!
  • Do you drive your car with a flat tire? Of course not, you’d cause more and more damage to the car the longer you drive! What was a small repair now is a major disaster!
  • Do you keep driving at 55 mph when you enter a 30 mph speed zone, even when warned that speed is checked by radar? Of course you don’t. If you did you’d lose your driving privileges in a very short time and be taking a mortgage to pay your fines and super-fines!So why do you drive the economy by taking away without replacing or not making necessary repairs and adjustments? Why do you damage the environment without repairing the damage you cause?

Why do you keep taking from the cookie jar without replacing the cookies and then complain that there are no more cookies? That’s the simplified state of facts. It all starts with Y-O-U!

Yes, the fast track to damnation will be littered with teachers, programs, administrators, advance placement programs. Why? Because they are not working and are costing an arm and a leg. They are NOT WORKING and are killing what does work: You and Me!

Look teachers are nice but they’re out for themselves. To think differently means you have your head in a fog. What the teachers don’t grab to make their lives easier the teachers union will grab for them. Guess who’s going to foot the bill for the $80-120 thousand plus salaries plus enhancements, plus benefits, plus summers off, and some very hefty pensions (after they move out of the district, like former interim superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith has done after padding her pension!). You and Me!

You’ve been paying for programs and administrators that have been substandard and that’s not only in this district. Sure they have to go! You’d have to go if you did on your job what they manage to do and stay employed! Abusing students. Indifference to student welfare. Bullying students. Having students bully other students. Just being jerks.

And “advance placement programs?” What a load of purest propagandist rubbish! Why isn’t “advanced” the standard like it is in Germany, Japan, Russia? I’ll give you a little hint: because parents like to delude themselves into thinking that little Johnny or Ginny is something special. WAKE UP! They’re far from special and in comparison to students in other countries they’re far below average! Our colleges are crap, too, because they attempt to educate the average who come to the colleges with below average abilities. Why? Because our colleges are not in the business of education…they’re more in the business of doing research for corporations or are in the real estate business! Our kids get advance placement on the international stupids list!

There are plenty of statistics and studies to document just how poorly the American student is doing in comparison with Europe and Asia. It ain’t pretty. Here are just two: Alliance for Excellent Education-Fact Sheet (March 2008), USA Today: In ranking, U.S. students trail global leaders. It’s downright embarrassing! And to think that with a graduation rate in a mid-70% range at the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk  Central School District  our per student expenditure is more than $21,000, we should be asking some very hard questions, indeed!

Why is that, parents? Don’t blame it all on the self-serving teachers. The teachers want the same thing you do: cars, houses, money, vacations, time off, etc. Blame it on yourselves for your own greed and indifference to the welfare of your offspring! Try parenting instead of getting more stuff. Try socializing your asocial cave creatures. Try teaching them respect (for others and themselves). Try teaching them how to be members of a community. Try teaching them how to love and be loved (and I don’t mean loving their own stuff or someone else’s–translate “stuff” any way you please). Give them a home not a car to live in. They don’t need A.S.A.P. programs or Teen Centers, they need parents. Real moms and dads!  Need I go on or are you finally catching on.

Or what's left of it.

Or what’s left of it.

As for the so-called adults among us: You had a brain at birth but through chronic misuse or unuse it’s gotten a bit screwed up. Maybe you’re reading the Times Union pulp fiction too much, or watching your MidHudson Cable ripoff too long. But you really need to make some corrections in your own lives, in the community, and then you can start on the bigger picture. But first you have to relearn how to use what gray matter might still be left after exposure to the fiction you have been fed by the media, by your leaders, by yourselves.

And the Times Union and the other media can start with themselves or suffer the consequences. The local elected officials who have been screwing you for years have to go. What we need is an ethical print and electronic media system that publishes true facts and less mistake, error and fear. The media and the government is misusing you and misinforming you, controlling you by making you suspicious of others and keeping you anxious and fearful. You actually have control if you’d only take it.

You need to get involved, though. You have to stop leaving it to someone else. That’s not how it works. Or you can stay stuck where you are. It’s your choice.

Coeymanazi Building Inspector Conrad: Good fences make good neighbors! More Laws Better…

Local News Is Fast Becoming Scarce  If Not Ultra-Commonplace. A Sure Sign that The Times Useless and Its Step-cousin, the Ravena News Herald are Scandal-Starved.

boys on fenceJudging from the front page of the Ravena News Herald and from the items–they’re not stories, actually, nor are they professional journalism, by the way–the local-bulletin-board-wannabe-newspaper is fast becoming advertisements in disguise  while continuing as a local propaganda rag. (Example: “Free” kempo karate demos at library for children; parents will pay after the kids get a taste. Can’t a library just be a library anymore?) Just look at the latest edition of the Ravena News Herald to see what we mean.

In a front-page piece on the “Scouts”  meeting in the Roman Catholic Church of St Patrick in Ravena, we read that

“…dozens of community members gathered at St. Patrick’s Church in Ravena to witness the Cub and Boy Scouts of Troop 1067 reaffirm their commitment to reverence, “to be reverent toward God, faithful in his [Ed. note: God’s?] religious duties and to respect the beliefs of others” in accordance with the law of the Scout put forth by the Boy Scouts of America.”

That bit of scurrilous reporting which, if you read the news outside of Ravena-Coeymans, is the epitome of misinformation and hypocrisy, given the BSA’s refusal to stop being a pillar of discrimination, exclusion and hate, where even the federal government has long ago legislated against such practices. I think it’s the part about to “respect the beliefs of others,” that got my attention. But more on that some other time.

But the most glaring first-page gaffe is the caption under the large photo on the first page. (Can you find it?) More about this later on.

(Source: The Ravena News Herald, Vol. 132 No. 52 (February 14, 2013). Photo by Marlene McTigue)

This was followed by a rather lengthy “prayer” read by Brian Searles, BSA troop master, which runs more than 144 words and takes up 2/3 of the first page text. That “prayer” runs along the lines of the Prayer of St Francis of Assisi that starts, “Lord, make me an instrument of your peace…”

“Dear Lord, bless all those everywhere who contribute to shape the hearts, minds and bodies of young people. Let us remember what they have taught and apply it daily.”

I have some serious questions as to the “what they have been taught,” and if the scout leader is referring to the explicit policy of discrimination and hate espoused, defended, and ipso factotaught” by the Boy Scouts of America espouse with regard to certain groups. Searles continues:

“When facing deceit and dishonesty, let us be trustworthy. If we see hypocrisy and faithlessness, let us be loyal. Where disregard for others and where materialism prevails, let us be helpful. In an atmosphere of ill manner, let us be courteous. Where some measure manliness in brutality and crudeness, let us be kind. Though law-breaking and rule-scoffing are common, let us be obedient. While others grumble and grouch, let us be cheerful. In an environment blighted by waste and extravagance, let us be thrifty. When confronted with danger and temptation, let us be brave. As we see filth and pollution everywhere, let us be clean. While witnessing impiety and irreligion, let us remember to be reverent. In short, in a world that has for generation after generation lamented the lack of good examples, let us Scouts stand out, grow up and be real adults.”

Clumsy as Mr Searles plagiarized prayer might be, his complaints are quite clear–we all know what he’s talking about, don’t we?

Actually, had Mr Searles simply read the Prayer of St Francis, maybe someone in the group would have more completely appreciated the intended prayerfulness of the moment and would have actually attempted to live the admonitions promoted by the holy example of the saint, and centuries later distilled shortly before the First World War into the now popular and familiar verses. (To read and download a copy of the Franciscan Peace Prayer I’ve prepared, click this link: The Story Behind the Peace Prayer of St Francis )

It’s rather ironic, too, that these lofty confessions of what our society and community have come to represent: “deceit and dishonesty,” hypocrisy and faithlessness,” “disregard for others,” “materialism,” “ill manner” ( must admit, I’m at a loss to really understand what that is supposed to mean), “manliness in brutality and crudeness,” “law-breaking and rule-scoffing,” where our neighbors “grumble and grouch,” and in a culture that confronts us daily with “danger and temptation,” where we find “filth and pollution everywhere,” and in our very churches we witness “impiety and irreligion” (irreligion is an interesting word meaning hostility towards religion. I don’t think that’s the problem though.), “lack of good examples.” In a word, doesn’t this sound like the routine in this community, in the local schools, in the entire Smalbany  region? The entire country–with few exceptions? And let’s ask ourselves how long the Scouts have been in the RCS district? And where do they go and what do they do if they graduate from our schools, move on from the scouts?

We also read in that same issue of the Ravena News Herald that–like Ravena-Coeymans–there’s no news in New Baltimore. We say this because on page 4 (it’s interesting to note that in the News Herald, page 2 reports on “Around the Town” news from Albany, Vorheesville, Rotterdam (?!?), under the heading “New Baltimore,” we read that the ailing, lonely, only church left in New Baltimore is hosting a food and fellowship luncheon. We then turn to page 9 of that same issue and read an exact duplicate of the article. Nice editing. But my point is this: Has New Baltimore descended, deteriorated to such an extent that there’s nothing better to report than to repeat an announcement of a church luncheon?!?

RCS residents pay a buck to read that sort of amateurish, poorly written, unnewsworthy stuff

So we finally come to the stuff of our title, “Coeymanazi Building Inspector Conrad: Good fences make good neighbors?” How does that fit in with the Ravena News Herald and its misshapen and moronic reporting? Read on…

R. Frost (1874-1963)Probably Turning in his Grave!

R. Frost (1874-1963)
Probably Turning in his Grave!

In a misinformative and pitifully distorted version of both American literature and reality, idiot reporter Bryan Rowzee, in the front-age item, “Coeymans. Keeping Coeymans on the map,” Rowzee starts off his item with a quote from Robert Frost’s memorable poem, Mending Wall. But in true News Herald Fashion, Rowzee misinterprets and so falsifies to his readers the meaning of the poem, and does so by taking one familiar line out of the context of the whole poem, similar to what’s done business as usual in the RCS community.

For starters, the poem is a lament of fences, how walls and fences are something that are unnatural:

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.

And throughout the poem Frost questions the necessity for fences and even characterizes the neighbor who builds the fence (in the poem a stone wall) as being

…like an old-stone savage armed.
He moves in darkness

In fact, Mr Rowzee, Frost’s poem has nothing good to say about walls or fences; in fact, the entire poem is a statement against walls and fences! Mr, Frost, describes his neighbor likening him to a menacing caveman as he puts a rock into the wall, and repeats, “Good fences makes good neighbors.” So, either Mr Rowzee is trying to be cute and is using the Frost quote in total ignorance of what the poem actually says or, Mr Rowzee is being sneaky and using the quote to ridicule Larry Conrad in the article. Difficult to say unless you read the item in the News Herald, and until you reach the paragraph

“Conrad said the town loves growth and wants growth but needs growth that follows the laws created to help the whole community. He said he hopes that this business and others will benefit from clearer zoning maps and believes this may lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.”

Mr Conrad has a motley history of contradictions and obstruction; he’s not much different from any other small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty official. Of course, Mr Conrad loves walls and fences, they’re unnatural and intended to isolate and obstruct. He’s been building unethical walls in the Coeymans community  for years and has gotten very good at it.

Moreover, there’s nothing small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty officials like more than passing laws that make them appear more powerful and make their jobs more secure, while at the same time make everyone else’s lives more complicated, and unpleasant, increase the already insufferable red tape and corruption in the area, and offer more opportunities for the small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty official to do “favors” for special people.

Like so many in the Ravena-Coeymans élite, Conrad talks out of both sides of his face

two-facedYes, Mr Larry Conrad, Coeymans Building Inspector, does come to us with a long history and a mighty load of dirty laundry in his baggage. The are some very unsavory legends about the connections between Larry Conrad and Bobo-cop Gerald “Jerry Dirty-Hands” Deluca, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (Deluca claims to be a consultant with the DEC. Consulting on what?), and a tract of land on Route 9w, a certain family of lawyers in Ravena (did I say “Biscone“?  Oops!), and an alleged shady deal made to bamboozle an elderly couple out of their property for a song. Greed was the motivation, of course. And the lawyer (did I say “Biscone” again?  Oops!), made it all seem legal. But when the deal collapsed and the property was sold to a local family for a fair price, the retaliation began! And who was at the center of the “legal” harassment and retaliation? Why do you need to ask? Mr Larry Conrad.

Like so many in the Ravena-Coeymans élite, George Dardiani (violates the Code of Judicial Ethics), Ravena mayor John Bruno (plays loosey-goosey with public money), Cathy Deluca (runs a close second to her double-talking husband and has a teflon surface with her supporters), Michael Biscone, (is he village attorney or does he just bill the village? Whatever he is, he’s great at covering some apparent real conflicts of interest. We’ll FOIL his invoices for services and the payment vouchers from the village very soon!) and the list could go on and on,  Conrad talks out of both sides of his face, but as a made Coeymanazi, he’s loyal to the godfathers and to his protectors.

So you can really understand, given Conrad’s associations, history, cronies, and the mob he hangs out with, we take a very close look at statements like “the town … wants growth but needs growth that follows the laws created to help the whole community. He said he hopes that this business and others will benefit from clearer zoning maps and believes this may lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.”

Conrad apparently believes that more laws controlling what residents and neighbors do and “help the community,” and that more laws “will lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.” Which side of his mouth is this coming from, I ask?

Mr Conrad, the only way that misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and village/town officials can be lessened is not by creating more laws but by streamlining the administration. This may very well entail eliminating the village of Ravena and consolidating it with the hamlet of Coeymans under one single administration, an administration that will first of all put an end to the corruption and coercion that has hallmarked the Ravena-Coeymans system of oppression for decades! It will involve elimination of the money pit and den of thugs we popularly call the Coeymans Police Department and purging the crooks and dumbos calling themselves law enforcement! Replacing the Coeymans Police Department with a professionally trained corps of law enforcement like the Albany County Sheriff’s team would be the wisest move ever for this community.

Before you create new laws or bring in new systems, Mr Conrad, there’s a hell of a lot of healing that has to be done to “lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.” 

The Ravena-Coeymans community has been hemorrhaging small businesses while being poisoned by the large corporations and oppressed by the special-interests in and around Albany that are feeding and fostering the small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty officials who all believe they have their positions for life and can hand them over to their designated heirs.  And the Conrad-Biscone-Deluca-Bruno-Persico cliques have all but silenced the democratic process in the town of Coeymans. Clean out village and town hall completely and maybe the fresher air in the town of Coeymans will attract business-health conscious entrepreneurs. To date all that the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans have attracted are corpse flies feeding on the dead and dying local economy. What businesses are left standing after the Conrad Crew and the Coeymanazis have finished are disillutioned, angry, and suspicious of anything that comes out of the village and town halls!

Larry Conrad hasn’t a clue what he’s talking about! Before you create new laws or bring in new systems, Mr Conrad, there’s a hell of a lot of healing that has to be done to “lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.” The TRUST and CONFIDENCE in local government has to be re-established after decades of a local corrupt machine of self-interests and special interests have made this entire community into a community of paranoid recluses! Thank the  Brunos, the Biscones, the Delucas, the Warners, the Darlingtons, the Teresis, the Neris, the Rotellos, the Persicos, and Yes! the Conrads of the area, and their Coeymanazi minions.

Rather than Building Fences or Proselytizing that “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors” or that Laws Lessen Misunderstanding and Heal Strained Relationships, the News Herald and the Scouts Should be Proactively Tearing Down Fences and Building Community in spite of the Hypocrites, Whether Religious, Social, or Political Hypocrites!

The Moment of Truth is NOW!
Make Positive Changes Now. Tweak Later.

So back to page 1 of the Ravena News Herald. We can start by not asking God to do what we ourselves are very capable of doing ourselves if we simply follow the ethical principles taught by the Gospels and especially the Beatitudes (Sermon on the Mount). If you’ve forgotten what they are, find a Bible and read them again, if you ever have read them. The entire law condenses down to, “Love God totally and love your neighbor as you love yourself!”

Careful How You "Pray"!

Careful How You “Pray”!

Misusing prayer to make a political appeal to empty hearts is a sacrilege and involving God in that conspiracy is blasphemy! In the precincts of a Roman Catholic sacred space used for secular purposes, the prayer should either not have been done or the real experts in screwing up prayer should have been invited to invoke the petition to the divine: either the pastor of the Roman Catholic Church of St Patrick or the bishop’s minion, the deacon at St Patrick’s. At least the screwed up prayer would have been screwed up professionally. But to have such a “prayer” come from the lips of a representative of an organization that conspicuously and publicly discriminates and offends the dignity of members of the community is an affront to fair play and justice.

But certainly, the merit that can be taken from the so-called prayer is the enumeration of the darkness that the speaker finds in the community, society, and the world. But just publicly displaying awareness of those evils, evils that are right outside our doors, is not enough. Solutions are needed but no solutions are offered. That doesn’t work for me at all.

The newspapers at one time played an important educational role–they now churn out chum, crap!

The public media have lost all sense of dignity and continue to fail in their obligations to the people of our communities. Where the public media, the newspapers, played an important role of sharing good information while playing fair, and demanding quality in the information they send out to the public–yes, the newspapers at one time played an important educational role–they now churn out chum, crap! The conspicuous cover photo accompanying the article, “Scouts reaffirm their faith in God in annual service,” regrettably demonstrates this point. In the caption we read: “Weblos of Pack 1067 illustrate the deadline sin of gluttony in a skit at the Scouts Own Service on Sunday.” What is a “deadline sin”? Doesn’t the editor know gluttony (actually intemperance in moral theological terms)  is a “deadly sin“? Shame on you!

Poor editing, poor attention to detail, poor reporting: No news in New Baltimore. Church luncheon announced instead and in two places. Shame on you News Herald and New Baltimore!

But giving Rowzee the benefit of doubt, maybe he was doing both tongue-in-cheek.

And again, the glaring ignorance of Mr Bryan Rowzee and his pitiful misrepresentation of a renowned American poet laureate’s poem, Mending Wall, reveals the deplorable level of teaching the humanities, even important American literature. Rowzee’s gaffe reveals two things at least: the carelessness and indifference of the print media in terms of accuracy and reliability of facts, even well-established facts, and the failure of our education system in teaching our American literary heritage to such an abominable degree that an allegedly “qualified” journalist (a term used very loosely, indeed, in this discussion), one whose prose is made public as if it were credible, doesn’t have an inkling of understanding of what he’s writing about. If Mr Rowzee knew anything of what he was writing about he would have used the line from the Robert Frost poem correctly, and Rowzee would certainly have known better than to have printed the Conrad quote. But giving Rowzee the benefit of doubt, maybe he was doing both tongue-in-cheek. We can only guess!
