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

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

Ghouls Sighted in New Baltimore at Ghouls Gulch*,

a.k.a. 36 Madison Avenue East!

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

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

Some People Just Don’t Give it A Rest

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


“Dear Editor:

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

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

Bob and Joan Unmasked

Bob and Joan Unmasked

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

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

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

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

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

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

Welcome to Ghouls Gulch

Welcome to Ghouls Gulch

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“— A Harassed NB Resident”


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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

Son of Ross The Hound of Ghouls Gulch

Son of Ross
The Hound of Ghouls Gulch

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

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

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

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

THE WITCH’S COMPUTER

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

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

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

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

GaGa Gibson

GaGa Gibson

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Colonel Chris Gibson United States Congressman

Colonel Chris Gibson

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

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

 "DoDo Cop" Darlington sharing some misinformation.

“DoDo Cop” Darlington sharing some misinformation.

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

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

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

No fatalities. YET!

No fatalities. YET!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wow! McCartney-DiAcetis’ Stupidity Goes National, International

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

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

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

News Media Unanimous: DiAcetis and McCartney Were Wrong!

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

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

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

This one's for you two, DiAcetis and McCartney

This one’s for you two, DiAcetis and McCartney

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

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

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

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

Enjoying the crow?

Enjoying the crow?

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

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

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

The Vermin Must Go! The Editor

The Vermin Must Go!
They are killing us!

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

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

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

aww, you aren’t even close.

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

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

Joke's On Sicko! BANNED AGAIN!

Joke’s On Sicko!
BANNED AGAIN!

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

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

WE WIN (AGAIN)—YOU LOSE AGAIN, LOSER

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

People like you make us all feel like geniuses.

People like you make us all feel like geniuses.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bruno (former mummy-mayor of Ravena); Nancy Warner (mummy-mayor’s biatch, wife of corrupt Ravena Village judge Hal Warner); Matt Miller (RCS teacher on reduced class load for NYSUT rep business, double-dipper energy manager, student-abuser); the “Pink-PimpTim Houghtaling (graduate of the failing RCS high-school and Internet Troll); Joan Ross (the Weasel Witch of New Baltimore, wife of Bitter Bob of New Baltimore); Other Nameless Rats]

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

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

Common “Cents”: A Resident Looks at the Village of Ravena’s 2014-15 Budget…And Barfs!

 I know most folks don’t understand government’s budgets or even their own taxes, never mind the IRS! All we do know is that we are getting screwed, and screwed royally. Whether it’s the village or the RCS CSD, we’re getting screwed. Most of us hate or don’t much care for math so budgets and auditing is boring at best! 

Not in the Ravena Budget A Resident Reports

Not in the Ravena Budget
A Resident Reports

So I will try to break it down simple like, and relate the unbelievable incompetence and waste that we can plainly see in the Village of Ravena 2014 – 2015 budget. This incompetence and waste is simply mismanagement of your local tax dollars. Your money is being crazily mismanaged by a bunch of amateurs who know only one word: SPEND. So you can see the stupidity and wasteful costs!! Let’s forget about the Ravena Health & Fitness Center for a moment. Let’s look at some things we all understand such as, telephone expenses. We all have them and can understand them! Right?! I’m picking the phone bills in the Village of Ravena budget even the new board members can understand and should have questioned it themselves; they had 2 months ! But no. They just rubber – stamped the budget and that’s that. Same old, same old, monkey business as usual! A bunch of wingnuts at work.

VOR water plant* 8330.41 $2,350.00  
Grand Total for VOR telephones $ 17,475.00  
*The Ravena Water Plant is a separate fund and tax account and you can’t co-mingle those expenditures with the Ravena village administration and services; however I’m adding that expense too:  
Are You in Phone Bill Shock?

Are You in Phone Bill Shock?

So there you have it. A “magic jack” costs $19.95. a year. You can’t help but wonder: Are they calling 1-900 sex talk or something like that, or are they just plain stupid. Are they on the phone for advice from state or federal officials all the time or explaining themselves after Times Union or local TV news scandals? The costs are way OFF THE MAP! Just look at the water plant budget for phones! Who can they possibly be calling for that kind of money? Or Mosher Park where’s that telephone located? In a tree under or under some rocks, maybe? Or the fire department? Doesn’t the Ravena Fire Department usually get incoming calls? But their budget is a whopping $ 3,800.00! Who are they calling for that kind of money? It’s a freakin’ village fire department for dang sake! You would think the court would be OK for around $2000.00 (the Ravena court’s got to go!) but the clerk’s and mayor’s office for $5,000.00 when do they get their work done? And we have to consider that you’re billed for outgoing calls…

Oops I forget those Times Union Quotes of village officials when they’re caught with their panties down: “I didn’t know”. The clerk’s office must have an open line for the past 30 years to the NYS Comptroller and NYS Department of State offices or the Committee on Open Government (so that Bob Freeman can tell them not to respond to F.O.I.L. demands for information. That’s “Open Government” in NYS!) Yeah, that would explain it! But out of hundreds of telephone carriers out there and all the different discount deals, we’d like to know which one is robbing us blind? Where/when did the bidding take place?

What I find odd is there’s no postage for the court clerk’s office and water and sewer funds but there’s $8,000.00 for the village clerks alone. But that’s another story.

Or look at office supplies in the budget: the village clerk is $2,000.00 and the Ravena Health & Fitness Center office supply budget is 5000.00! What in hell is Cathy Deluca doing with office supplies? Eating them? Again, these are questions for the Office of the NYS Comptroller’s Office examiners and auditors.

Good News for Cathy D. Bad News for Ravena Taxpayers

Good News for Cathy D.
Bad News for Ravena Taxpayers

The fitness center is another horror story in itself, $28,700.00 for equipment repairs? Is that repairs to the junk equipment Bruno, Warner and Deluca paid more than $40,000 to Bob Fisk? Used equipment that cost us more than $40,000.00, and now another $28,000 on top of that? But although the Ravena Health and Fitness Center doesn’t have members to justify its existence, and despite the fact that it’s costing Ravena taxpayers more that $105,000 a year and bringing in no revenues, Cathy Deluca has plenty of time to sit in front of her computer all day long and still collect her $30,900 a year plus full benefits. Now that’s responsible stewardship of public money, isn’t it?

But the one I love is Hospitalization general fund account # 9060.88, $ 417,219.00 alone. And/also the water fund acct# 9060.88 (Yes! It’s the same account!) but money is coming out of water fund in the additional amount of $44,880.00. Again this is only hospitalization benefits! And who’s getting these benefits for almost a half – million dollars? Is this Obamacare at work or just the local crooks?

Retirement, social security , workmen’s comp, unemployment insurance, disability insurance, vacation, holidays, sick time! It’s enough to make you barf! Then there’s another $400,000.00, give or take $ 50,000 depending on “overtime”. Maybe I should start a blog and post the vouchers as they come in. and explain how you and I are getting screwed as tax payers.

$8,000 for "Towels"?!?!

$8,000 for “Towels”?!?!

Also acct # 9189.80 located under hospitalizations is $8000 for towels. TOWELS!?! YES! TOWELS!!! Eight grand for TOWELS! In the retirement fund accts area?? Are those hidden costs??? To the Fitness Center??

$54,000.00 for street lights????? Ravena I guess never heard of this invention back in the 12th century it’s “very green”, it’s called solar powered street lights, they been around a very long time and will save a penny or two.

So much for common cents.

Ravena's Got It To Burn

Ravena’s Got It To Burn

Editor’s Comment: What we’d like to see is this: We’d like to see Mr Polyak or someone else put together a comparison of the Ravena Village figures with those of the Town of Coeymans and the Town of New Baltimore. A comparison like that would really show the stupidity and the wastefulness and irresponsibility of the Ravena 2014-15 village budget!

One thing is very clear from Mr Polyak’s analysis: Residents, taxpayers must pay more attention to these local budgets and how they’re passed without adequate diligence on the part of local elected officials and without appropriate scrutiny of the line items by the public. Judging from Mr Polyak’s analysis, the waste of taxpayer money and fiscal irresponsibility and incompetence is scandalous. It’s almost comparable to the waste and fiscal irresponsibility of the RCS Central School District budget!

Mr Polyak’s original submission was edited for publication.

 So Why is the Coeymans Town Board Still Sinking Taxpayer Dollars in the Coeymans P.D.?
Why is the Coeymans Town Board Still Approving Hiring New Employees for the Coeymans P.D.?


As we quickly approach the historic quarter-of-a-million readers mark — YES! We’ve almost reached 250,000 readers! — We can look back with pride on the many accomplishments and community improvements that this blog has instigated by providing the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk community with factual information on what’s going on in their communities. And Yes! while we have contributed to many improvements in local life, we are still flabbergasted by the ignorance and insensitivity of local elected officials to the dire straits in local government and their total lack of vision and competency.

Coeymans Today

Coeymans Today

 In the past we made the excuses for them saying that the Coeymanazis had the majority on the board, or that a senile and corrupt mayor was bullying his programs through, and putting his friends and supporters into power and cushy local jobs. But that excuse seems to have gone the way of the dinosaur since the recent elections when local Republicans won the majority over local democraps in the Town of Coeymans, the Town of New Baltimore and the Village of Ravena. We also recently examined the first six months of the new Coeymans town board in our article: New Coeymans Town Board: First six months…Same old same old. The picture is not a pretty one.

Coeymans Town Board Visions of Dumps

Coeymans Town Board
Visions of Dumps

 The Town of New Baltimore has already made considerable headway to replacing corrupt and incompetent local government with accountability and transparency. Only time will tell whether the new elected officials will allow their authority to go to their heads and become one of the villains they replaced.

But Coeymans is Still Disgusting!

The Town of Coeymans, however, doesn’t seem to have caught on. The Town of Coeymans, it appears, has replaced one set of dolts with another set of widgets. The Town of Coeymans, it seems, hasn’t learned a damned thing in the past 4-8 years about good local government. The elections last November that brought so much hope to the residents and citizens of Coeymans was apparently a sham. The new majority on  the Town of Coeymans town council is not only continuing the pitiful stupidity of the past administrations but is showing even less courage, less vision, and is following the backward track of business-as-usual. Here’s what we have observed in the past six months:

 Two years ago, when we started this blog, we published one of our first articles, the third one, actually, on March 3, 2012, with the title: “Coeymans, New York: A Nest of Hypocrisy” (click on that link to read the article). Since then we’ve published a total of 336 articles that report on local life and politics, informing local residents, citizens and taxpayers about everything they won’t get to read in the Albany Times Union a.k.a. the Albany Times Useless, or any of the Johnson Newspaper Group’s rags, especially the local love-fest rag, the Ravena News Herald a.k.a. the Ravena Nosey Hick. The Ravena-Coeymans community has been the epicenter of ridicule and scandalous reporting by the Times Union, another liberal-democrap rag that has perpetuated the downward spiral of the Albany area.

same old

Looking back on our 336 articles, we published facts on everything from the misconduct of RCS Central School District teachers, bullying in our schools, the inability of the RCS Central School District administration to achieve even a mediocre standard of education while paying ineffectual teachers outrageous salaries, and getting abysmal test scores and graduation rates. Our schools, ladies and gentlemen, are failing and so are our students. Our costs, however, are skyrocketing. The salaries make up more than 75% of the school budget, Coeymans police are harassing our students on school grounds, sports coaches are making six-figure salaries while a large proportion of residents are working two or more jobs just to make ends meet and pay their property taxes. Go figure!

Local Coeymanazi police and Village of Ravena elected officials harass and persecute local teens and youth, while doing everything they possibly could to kill the local Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activities Center. Ex-mayor John Bruno, “trustee” Nancy Warner, and Cathy Deluca, after having paid a local insider more than $40,000 for used fitness equipment, and Josephine “Josie” Biscone-Bruno got a local man to sign a lease for premises, owned by Bob Fisk, a local insider, for the property finally killed the Teen Center. The Teen Center sold its furnishing to the Athens teen center, which has the support of the village of Athens. After all was said and done, the kids were back on the street and Ravena had another empty building, another distressed property on Main Street. Ex-mayor John T. Bruno was ousted with two of his lackeys, Martin Case, an RCS social studies teacher on reduced teaching load (but receiving a full teacher salary), and Rocco Persico, a RCS CSD school psychologist, in the March 2014 elections. Tell you a lot about RCS schools, doesn’t it?

The RCS CSD board of education has been a hot topic since day one. The spending is outrageous as are the salaries. The board of education is controlled by the teachers who are controlled by the New York State United Teachers, a division of the AFL, both unions. We have reported on incredible misconduct and conflicts of interest in the schools by the teachers and on the board of education. We’ve reported on election and poll misconduct and a number of citizens have complained directly to the New York State Department of Education and have demanded investigations. Too little too late. We’re stuck with special interests running both the schools and the board of education.
same old story

Unfortunately, most local residents get their local information and news only from the Ravena News Herald, which is a rag that reports only what’s approved and positive to the local powers to be. Almost always a week late and always saying ‘just the right thing the right way’ to paint a rosy, but false picture of what’s going on in Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk, always 3/4 packed with news from everywhere else, and complete with at least 8 full pages of legal notices. The Ravena News Herald, yours for a mere $1, and not fit to wipe your butt with.
In the meantime, the propaganda and misinformation fills the pages of local media. The lies abound and the frame-ups continue. Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk continues to earn its reputation as a “Nest of Hypocrisy.”

The Coeymans police department has been a subject of particular interest. Of all the local nests of corruption and misconduct, the Coeymans police department takes the first prize. When the Coeymans town board was dominated by the likes of Tom Boehm, Tom Dolan and Dawn Rogers, all recipients of special favors by the Coeymans police department and the local town justices (see our article, “From the Judge Himself: Coeymans Judge Resigns, Insider Exposes Corruption” of March 24, 2014), we demanded that Boehm, Rogers and Dolan get the boot. Boehm and Rogers were ousted last November. Dolan’s life expectancy on the Coeymans town board is very likely to end in the next elections. But the Coeymans town board is still as ineffectual as the last one! Why is that, we have to ask.

Despite public outcry to eliminate the Coeymans police department (see our article and poll at “Eliminate the Coeymans Police Department: Your Vote“, where 85% of participants demand that the Coeymans p.d. be eliminated!). Despite Coeymans town supervisor’s previous efforts to replace the Coeymans p.d. with services provided by the Albany County Sheriff’s Department that would save Coeymans more than $500,000 a year over the first four years and a projected $700,000 a year in the fifth year for law enforcement with no reduction in services! and maintaining a local presence, with local officers, and local equipment the Coeymans town board, still under the now disputed leadership of Stephen Flach, is still pouring money out of town coffers to placate the always hungry and always needy Coeymans police department. Far from eliminating it, the current Coeymans town board is approving more spending and approving more new hires to the already bloated and mismanaged Coeymans police department. All dodo-cop Darlington has to do is ask and the Coeymans town board rubber stamps the expenditure. Why is that, Coeymans?

Coeymans Town Board Congregation

Coeymans Town Board Congregation

With four alleged “Christians” on the Coeymans town board: Town supervisor Stephen Flach is allegedly a pastor to a local congregation of a Christian sect. Town councilman Peter Masti is an outspoken “Christian,” and the other two members of the majority, Burns and Langdon, also have some distinct “Christian” leanings, you’d expect them to be at least a little more ethical, less hypocritical, more responsible given the unmistakable condemnation of Pharisees and hypocrites in the New Testament, the guiding sacred text for most “Christians.” But somehow all that New Testament stuff has been swept under the carpet by the “Christians” on the Town of Coeymans board. We find it very interesting that four elected officials can forget their Christian ethics once they enter town hall. Be not mistaken, dear readers, we support the non-establishment clause of the US Constitution — properly interpreted and properly understood — but ethics is ethics and hypocrisy is hypocrisy, and hypocrisy is universally despised. So why is it so popular in Coeymans town hall?

Why is it that the four “Christians” entrusted with governing this town are blind to the corruption of the Coeymans police department. One of the worst villains was the adulterer (Yes! Readers! Adultery is a capital sin in the Old Testament and the New Testament; it is also a crime under New York State law!) Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, who recently “retired” or “resigned” from the Coeymans police department to become the CEO of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs. Deluca has been a favorite subject together with his bimbo-bandit wife, Cathy Deluca, who was installed by the former Ravena village mob to be “director” of the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center (Search this blog for the poop on that one!). Supervisor Flach calls Deluca a “faithful and loyal employee” and town councilman Kevin Langdon calls Deluca a “father figure.”  Deluca, in fact, not even considering his wife’s corruption, was one of the most despicable scoundrels and liars in recent Coeymans history!!! A lousy cop, a nasty piece of work, and a virtual pig in a suit, Deluca made wild claims of working for a number of special interest organizations while at the same time working for the Coeymans police department. It seems his “Christian” friends on the Coeymans town board — aided apparently by Deluca’s access to confidential and privileged police database information on residents and citizens — was reason enough for Coeymans town elected officials to ignore citizen complaints of abuse and to “turn the other cheek.”  And the résumé and outrageous employment claims discrepancies? It appears the Coeymans town board “Christians” made a special deal with God to give Deluca the capacity to be in several places at the same time; that’s the only way to explain his résumé and his employment claims.

What is most distressing and irking to most local residents and citizens is the fact that the Coeymans town board simply bends over for the Coeymans police department. The Coeymans town board ignores the numbers and simply obeys. A Ravena village justice, Hal Warner, husband of Ravena village trustee Nancy Biscone-Warner (Old Nancy, formerly mayor Bruno’s bitch, supervises her own husband’s court! How’s that for corruption!), recently stabbed a part-time village judge and Coeymans town justice in the back, forcing the Coeymans town justice, whom Warner had trained, to resign from his position. The reason: former Coeymans town justice Phillip Crandall spoke out against the illegal and unfair practices of the Coeymans police department and the favors being shown by Coeymans town courts to special people (like members of the Coeymans town board, for example). Honesty? Integrity? Justice? Fairness? Can’t have a judge like that! So force him to resign. Coeymans living up to its reputation as “a nest of hypocrisy.”

Incest, too, has been a popular them on this blog. Just search the term “incest” on this blog and your stomach will start to turn almost immediately. Count how many times the name “Deluca” turns up. Search the word corruption and see how many times the name “Matt Miller,” “Deluca“, “Warner“, “Darlington” comes up. Enough said.

So, Coeymans, you’ve come a long way to proving how disgusting you can be and how you just love being pissed on by your elected officials. Your town board is there to ensure that your civil rights are abused by your corrupt Coeymanazi police department. Your Coeymans town board is there to ensure that your tax dollars are wasted to the max. Your town board is there to turn Coeyman’s share of the historic and beautiful Hudson valley into everyone’s dump, industrial site, and transfer station. “Coeymans: the Hudson Valley’s Dump.” Coeymans is there to change its name for a handful of coupons for a disgusting and heart-toxic sandwich: “Reubenville.” Coeymans is there for your heavy truck traffic and features some of the best and deepest potholes in the county! The Coeymans town board is right there when a local money-bags wants to put in a bridge and cross Route 144, destroying local environment and putting every driver and his family at increased risk to life and limb with heavy trucks crossing a heavily travelled road, at a poorly visible point! Coeymans again living up to its reputation as “a nest of hypocrisy.”

Well, Coeymans residents and visitors will soon see and experience what we are talking about:  You’ll soon be trying to enjoy the air, the weather, the scenery of the Hudson Valley. But you won’t be able to breathe because of the stench of the dumps and the transfer stations, and the dust the heavy  trucks will be raising on the heavily damaged local roads. If you are out for a ride or your kids are out cruising, the Coeymans police will be hiding, ready to pounce on you or them, cuffing them because they “smell pot” in their cars. And there’ll be some local putting up a dirt bank to hide the Hudson from view. Be ready. Coeymans, the home of “same ol’ same ol’.”  Ain’t life grand in Coeymans?

Anyone and everyone in the Town of Coeymans should be asking the Coeymans town board about the studies and statistics they used to decide to continue paying more than $1,000,000 a year of Coeymans taxpayer dollars on the Coeymans police department when the town could be saving at least $500,000 a year by going with the Sheriff’s Department plan to establish a satellite station in Coeymans. We might also ask what is being done in terms of investigating the many claims and complaints against the Coeymans police department to avoid costly lawsuits against the town. We can ask what the Coeymans town board is doing about the civil rights abuses and obstruction of justice charges against the Coeymans police department. Never mind. We’ll tell you: No investigation. The Coeymans town board is approving more spending and approving more hiring. That’s what. Coeymans, the Police State.

And what about your roads, water, sewerage and waste water treatment? Youth and teens? Senior citizens housing and projects? Culture and history? Civil rights and family values. Vision and planning?  Quality of life in Coeymans? Your Coeymans elected officials, all church-going “Christians”, have their own ideas of the concept of “stewardship” and ethics in Coeymans. Your “Christian” elected officials in the Town of Coeymans have a legacy to protect: Hypocrisy.

 truck_in_dust

While they’re taking your firearms and preventing firearm noise in the Town of Coeymans; while they’re arresting your kids because the Coeymanazi cops smell pot (probably on their own clothes), and then demand that they provide information they don’t have (Aren’t you outraged, parents? They’re your kids!); while youre busting your axles in local potholes or risking your lives trying to avoid them; Your lungs are being treated to clouds of toxic dust and toxic fumes, not to mention what they’ve buried in your back yard or the sewerage in your basement! If the dust doesn’t get you, the heavy trucks pulling out in front of you will. Wasting your tax dollars paying for harassment and retaliation by bully-police, crooked attorneys and judges — rewarding the criminals and punishing the inocent citizen. That’s your town at work.

New Coeymans Town Board: First six months…Same old same old

Town of Coeymans Voters Thought They were Shifting the Power Balance in Favor of Positive Change last November

SURPRISE! STATUS QUO. NO VISION. OLD BUSINESS

status-quo-diver+fish

Given the chance for freedom, to escape from its confinement in a fishbowl, Coeymans opts to go back to where it was.

The basic problem with the candidates running for local elected office who are available to choose from whether we are voting for the members on the board of education or the town board, or even our judges, is the fact that they are ignorant or just plain uneducated. They have little or no vision because they, well, are popular because they are, simply put, local yokals (townie, local hick, hillbilly). The other group of local candidates come from the self-invented sophisticated upper class in local society: this means, simply put, the suits in the town or the village. These are the locals who are yokals but walk and talk like they’re not. They prance around like they’re better educated, have better jobs, bigger houses, etc. They’re the ones who run the committees and create the cliques. But the local yokals and the pseudo-sophistates are all one and the same stuff where the rubber hits the road, when you scrutinize performance. They have no vision, they get really nasty when criticized, and all they can do is reinvent wheels. And you wonder why nothing changes.

The local communities of Ravena, Coeymans, Selkirk, New Baltimore and beyond have no excuse for accepting the rubbish being offered by the RCS CSD board of education, by the village councils and the town boards, by the Coeymanazi police department. Why?  Because this blog has kept you all informed of what’s going on behind the scenes. We have not spoon fed you lies and propaganda like the local media and rags have done. We are not beholden to the crooks and the conspirators, the corrupt officials and police. We tell it like it really is and you get the information you deserve. But you have to participate, too. You have to comment, you have to start seeing beyond the smoke screens, you have to start attending the village, town and board of education meetings. You can’t continue to leave it to a few who have carried the burden for you for so long in the past. You have to get off your flat asses and participate if you want to see things change.

progress in coeymans

Our recent polls forecast the outcomes of three local elections that promised to usher in postitive change in our communities: Coeymans, New Baltimore, and Ravena. We didn’t run a poll on the last RCS CSD board of education because we thought it was a shoe in: the Latter-Hyslop-Brown gang was so obviously partisan and in cahoots with the teachers union that we didn’t imagine that voters would be so stupid to vote them in. But they were that stupid and we misjudged them. Now RCS is stuck with a special interest packed board of education that is loyal to the union and has all but eliminated the public from its decision-making process. The decisions are made in closed sessions and the public meetings may last 20 minutes, if that. Most people interested in attending refuse to spend more time traveling to the meetings than the meetings last. The big problem then is this: The RCS CSD board of education has fixed it so that they can do what they want and when there’s an uproar they can say “You had the chance to attend the public meetings but didn’t.” Pretty underhanded way to eliminate public participation in their scandalous and underhanded practices. But it seems to be working. You’ve handed it over to them and now you are paying and your kids are the victims, suffering, geting a substandard education in failing schools while the teachers are getting enhancements and outrageous salaries for doing everything but effective teaching. More than three quarters of the multi-million dollar school budget goes to salaries. Did you know that?

screwed1And now we not only have police in our schools disguised as necessary security (where were the teachers, teachers aids, etc.). Well, apparently the police officer assigned to the high-school is also providing sexual favors to a wrestling coach. And now we also have the Police State entering RCS CSD schools with police and police dogs searching students’ lockers while the kids are in class. What’s the effect on all of this on the students? What do they think about all of this? Do you think this sort of treatment is having a positive effect on them? Or is it part of a larger plan to zombify them in preparation for adulthood. Yes, parents, give them electronic toys, de-parent them, turn them over to failing schools, and let local law enforcement deal lthe death blow to their self-respect and dignity. And you go and do your own thing; you deserve your perosnal time because, after all, you’re paying your taxes and you expect that your kids will get what you’re paying for. Guess what? They are. Just like YOU: SCREWED!

Here’s an example: Our polls indicate that 85% of local residents want to see the Coeymans police department eliminated. That’s the best information we have because there’s no other information available. The Coeymans town board has no clue what is going on in the town or what YOU or anyone ouside of the town hall wants. George Langdon, a newly elected Coeymans town board member, appears to be a clone of the outgoing Tom Boehm and Dawn Rogers. Langdon, Flach and the rest of the sitting Coeymans town board are actually listening to Coeymanazi p.d. chief Gregory Darlington proposing increasing full-time Coeymans police officers and increasing his useless police department’s police power in Coeymans. They want to upgrade equipment, they want to hire new cops, the want to replace part-timers with full-timers, they want new vehicles. The taxpayers in the town of Coeymans, a town of less than 8,000 residents, is paying more than $1million to support a police department that is as corrupt as they come, and the town of Coeymans board is actually listening to arch-crook Darlington ask for more personnel and more money and equipment!

Here’s what the News Herald reports them to have said in a recent budget meeting (“Police chief looking to shift focus to full-time officers,” Ravena News Herald, April 3, 2014):

“Police chief Gregory Darlington wants to trim overtime expenses and improve service…by shifting focus to more full-time rather than part-time officers, and investing in technology for long-term benefits.”

But Darlington doesn’t explain how this will happen nor does the News Herald explain How? That’s because it’s all baloney! Or in plain English, bullshit!

Darlington then goes on to say, “we are already down three part-time positions ans we are anticipatient two more openings very soon (in the communications division).”

Dawn LaMountain, Darlington’s “confidential secretary” also has input on how to spend taxpayer money. LaMountain says, “I would like to canvas and hire five so that we hit the ground running. It keeps the overtime down.” Who in hell is LaMountain to be talking about hiring “five” (five what?). Since when is Darlington’s secretary making hiring decisions, determining how to keep costs down, influencing budgeting decisions. Where are the numbers? Where are  the data?

Here’s the clincher, though: Our study indicates that 85% of residents want to eliminate the Coeymans police department; word on the street is even higher. Our study indicates a very high majority want to turn over law enforcement to the Albany County Sheriff and the New York State Police, who already have responsibility for the town of Coeymans and are already being paid for. Yet we’re still discussing funding the Coeymans police department to the tune of more than $1million, hiring new full-time personnel, updating technology, etc. Town board member George Langdon (who is apparently a democrat dressed up as a Republican) apparently suppports the Coeymans police department depite popular outrage and notes that “funding was already available” (From where, may we ask, Mr Langdon?) and “There is a net zeo impact to the budget.” This means that Mr Langdon doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about. It makes not sense logically and there are not fixed and firm numbers to substantiate Langdon’s outrageous misstatement. The bill to Town of Coeymans taxapayers for another year of Coeymanazi p.d. is at least $1million. That’s $1million that could and should be invested in something that is not duplicated expense, and the Coeymans police department is a duplicated expense.

Math genius Gregory Darlington, the same Gregory Darlington who had to take the police chief examination three times before he passed it, tells the Coeymans town board that his personnel magic will save the town $7,500 annually. Now compare that to the proposal made by the Albany County Sheriff Department to take over Coeymans law enforcement with a local Sheriff’s Department satellite station in Coeymans town hall, with local officers and vehicle presence that would save the town of Coeymans more than $300,000 (Yes! You read right: more than three hundred thousand dollars annually and we’d still have local officers and vehicles but wearing Sheriff’s deputy uniforms and driving sheriff-marked cars.) DUH! Compare an annual law enforcement budget proposed by Darlington of more than $1million to a budget of about $500,000. Compare Darlington’s proposed annual savings of $7,500 to the at least $300,000 in the Sheriff’s proposed plan if the Coeymans p.d. is eliminated.  Does anyone not understand this?

Coeymans police sargeant Ryan Johnson a.k.a. PsychoCop says it all when he explains the benefits of changing to 12-hour shifts. Johnson reasons: “You have a lot more time to do a full patrol…and you get an extra six or seven days off a month.” Now let’s look at that comment. Yes, PsychoC. with a 12 hour shift you do have more time to do a patrol than a 7.5 or 8-hour shift or even a 10-hour shift. We can’t argue that math. But then Johnson’s real interest comes out when he states that they will get “an extra six or seven days off a month.” So who benefits from all of this? Taxpayers? Hell no!

Coeymans Town Supervisor Stephen Flach is a major disappointment and a real jellyfish!

Coeymans Town Supervisor Flach A Jellyfish and a Disappointment

Coeymans Town Supervisor Flach
A Jellyfish and a Disappointment

Supervisor Flach is a real disappointment. We gave him the benefit of doubt for being ineffective as a leader when we theorized that the majority on the board were opponents and stymying his real efforts. It appears he’s just a weak leader and sucks anything you put into his mouth. Previously actively pursuing the plan to eliminate the Coeymans p.d. and entering into active discussions with the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, Flach now seems to be caving to the police-lobby in town hall, apparently led by George Langdon. According to Flach as quoted in the News Herald article, he says, “My only concern is that the police department has enough full timers that we can get rid of the overtime.” Flach, you’re a major disappointment and a real jellyfish! If that’s your only concern regarding the Coeymans police department you need to take a walk!

 And then we have our resident card-carrying Christian who objects to the “X” in Xmas (not being Christian enough to know that the X stands for “Christ” in the Greek Christos) who in his usual ignorant and misguided eloquence is incorrectly described by Bryan Rowzee as working “in the medical profession.” Masti is a freakin’ nurse. Maybe he works in healthcare but he’s not a “medical professional” which would mislead the reader to possibly understand Masti to be a physician. Just say Masti’s a nurse and avoid any misunderstandings. But that’s not the point we’re trying to make here. Masti adds his two cents in the NH article by saying, “Trust me, I am a big fan of 12-hour shifts.” Comparing apples with oranges seems to be a habit on the Coeymans town board (like kissing Coeymans p.d. ass is): A 12-hour shift in nursing is quite different from a 12-hour shift in law enforcement, Mr Masti. Having read Masti’s letters to the editor in the past (He actually gets them published regularly in the News Herald. That should tell you something about Masti.) and reading some of his statements made as a Coeymans town councilman, I would really like to know where he’s a nurse…so I can stay clear of the place and ensure no one in my family is ever treated there. I have serious concerns about Mr Masti’s mental status.

The “C” in Coeymans town council stands for “Caver”. After all is said and done, Coeymans residents, citizens and voters are getting another shafting by their elected officials. This report on the budget and the crazy, idiotic statements made by Coeymanazi police chief Gregory Darlington, PsychoCop Ryan Johnson and others on the Coeymans town board should alert Coeymans that they need to be brought back on track because they have derailed (AGAIN!). They are still in the same rut as a year ago and are spinning their wheels. Watch George Langdon very closely, too, because he’s a slippery snake. Flach is a jellyfish and folds at every opportunity. Masti is an idiot. So there’s a majority on the Coeymans town board. Lord help us!
