Criminals Thumbing Their Noses to Law Enforcement? Why?

Over the past two years or so we’ve been very fair to local law enforcement, very gentle, and quiet but always watching. We’ve kept our ear to the ground and now it’s time to take off the gloves and ask some burning, critical questions. Why is it that two prime suspects, Zachary C. Stahlman (Glenmont) and Donald J. Howell, both with criminal records, Stahlman once being charged with misdemeanor possession of a firearm, have not gotten some real attention by local law enforcement?  Charles H. Stahlman (Zachary Stahlman’s father) 52, was charged with felony possession of a forged instrument after using forged $20 and $10 bills at an estate sale on Sunday, State Police in New Scotland. (Source: Times Union, Tuesday, November 15, 2016) Stahlman Sr runs Fat Cat Transport L.L.C. in Coeymans Hollow. Guess where? On Shady Lane. Really!

You’re in Good Hands with Allstate. Really?

allstate_sm[Editor’s Note: Zachary C. Stahlman recently breached a lease agreement made with a local landlord for premises for a flea market called, Guess what? Fat Cat Antiques L.L.C. Do you think he was going to stock the flea market with merchandise purchased by his father, Charles H. using counterfeit $20 and $10 bills? According to Stahlman’s LinkedIn site, he  is employed by Allstate Insurance Company  (click the link) as a “sales producer”; Now you really know you’re in “good hands with Allstate”. Doesn’t Allstate vet their employees? Don’t they do background checks? ]

It’s not ISIS or alQaeda nor the Russians nor Alexandr Putin we have to worry about, people, it’s the thug next door or the low-life you’re renting to, and law enforcement’s conspicuous inability to enforce the law and to protect our citizens — or worse still, their refusal to do so. Excuses don’t keep our residents, businesses, property safe from criminals.

Kiss ma ass, cops!

Kiss ma ass, cops!
Lendin, Stahlman, Howell

Something’s — still —  rotten in Coeymans, Albany County, and Greene County. According to information we have received on crimes being committed in the Town of Coeymans and the Town of New Baltimore are being put on the back burner. It seems local criminals are thumbing their noses to local law enforcement and getting away with everything from theft to major vandalism to driveby shootings. So our question is this:

Where is law enforcement and What is local law enforcement doing about all of this criminal activity.

Actually, it’s nothing new and has been going on for some time now.

There are several possibilities: Either law enforcement is asleep on the job and is making no effort to protect local residents and businesses from criminals, or law enforcement is unable to do their jobs. The Coeymans Police Department is small and under–equipped, thanks to Coeymans Town Supervisor Phil Crandall (D) and his harem,  but even so, can ask for assistance from the New York State Police but Coeymans has to request assistance, since the crime scene is in Coeymans’ jurisdiction. What Greene County Sheriff Gregory Seeley (R) and Greene County District Attorney Joseph Stanzione (R) are doing is short of nothing. Seeley has a big mouth when it comes campaign time just before he’s up for election and then he’s real tough on crime. What happens after the elections is anybody’s guess but it does seem he goes a bit flaccid, a bit limp, some erectile dysfunction there, a bit soft on crime. As for Greene County DA Joe Stanzione, he’s been notified about a number of law enforcement failings and seems to have gone deaf or something. Maybe he’s brain dead but he seems to be out to lunch with Seeley when it comes to law enforcement. So what gives, Greene County media? Have you all gone Republican-soft — We thought that was a Dem thing, a Liberal thing…Right Mr Soares? — on crime? What are we financing Greene County law enforcement, the Greene County Sheriff’s Department, to do? Give free rein to the crooks and criminals in Greene County? We want some answers and quick!

It’s totally ridiculous when you think that the suspects can steal NYS dealer plates from a car in the New Baltimore Town Hall parking lot right under the noses of the Greene County Sheriff’s deputies who would be in the courtroom and also have a satellite station in the New Baltimore Town Hall. You can’t make this stuff up! It’s disgusting, really.

Albany DA P. David Soares, the Oreo

Albany DA P. David Soares, the “Oreo”
Still giving CPR to the Albany Dem Machine!

As for Albany County, that cesspool has been a den of corruption and crooks since time immemorial. We all know about Albany County DA P. David Soares and his collection of morons — not servants of the people but servants of the system — in the Albany County DA’s office. Take for instance Soares’ reputation as being the worst DA in the country. The most notable thing Soares has done since he’s been in office is to play the Soul Train race ticket to get re–elected, and then Soares the Oreo turns around and screws the black community. And then there’s his little bunch of trollops like Chantelle Cleary and Carmen Warner, daughter of Nancy Warner, Ravena village trustee, and Harold “Hal” Warner, Ravena village justice, who were involved in some indecency on Facebook, had to resign from their positions in Soares’ office. Well, that’s OK since Michael Biscone collected Soares’ garbage and hired Warner. If you don’t recall the incident, see our article The Warners: A Family Tradition of Misconduct

It gets worse when we have to look back to the days of Gerald “Dirty-Hands” Deluca and Gregory “Dumplin'” Darlington when they were running the Coeymans Police Department and Ravena-Coeymans. There’s the story of Scott Lendin, who vandalized several vehicles on the 9W Auto LLC lot, and stole electronic equipment out of one of the vehicles. He had the equipment in his possession when apprehended. Lendin even allegedly announced that he “had friends in the Bethlehem Police Department,” and he obviously had friends in the Coeymans Police Department and the local courts, too. Because when he appeared before then justice Phillip Crandall, who has since been disgraced and removed from the court and banned from ever running for judicial office again — but who then ran for public office as Coeymans Town Supervisor and was elected by Coeymans voters. Well, the Coeymans Police Department either because of their “special relationships” with the local criminal element or as retaliation, dragged their feet in the Lendin investigation until Lendin was released with less than a slap on the hand. No doubt Deluca and Dardiani had colluded to screw up the investigation, and Albany DA Soares was up to his neck in corruption with Deluca and Dardiani. After all, Darlington’s wife was working in Soare’s office as a secretary at the time. Can you imagine the information that got leaked to and from the Coeymans PD from the DA’s office and back? We reported on this and much more back in . If you don’t remember, you can read our article, Exposé: The Lost Felonies, to refresh your memory.

When Deluca and Darlington were “forced” to resign from the Coeymans Police Department, and P.J. McKenna, a veteran police investigator and law enforcement professional, was hired to be Coeymans Police Chief and to reform the Coeymans Police Department, we were skeptical and still demanding that the Coeymans Police Department be eliminated outright. But we gave McKenna a decent chance and left him alone to allow him to do his thing. Was that a miscalculation on our part?

We are now asking ourselves the big question: Has anything changed? Or are the criminals still in control of the Town of Coeymans?

Well, anyone who’s been tracking the Crandall goons in Coeymans Town Hall, knows damned well that the criminals are in control of Town Hall. Anyone who thinks otherwise is probably on Crandall’s staff payroll. No money for the Coeymans Town Clerk or for the Coeymans Police Department but plenty of money for Crandall’s harem, even if they haven’t got a clue how to run a computer. Right, Nita Chmielewski?

Has the Deluca-Darlington Clown Show become the Crandall-Youmans Sitcom?

(Shown left to right: Phil Crandall, Nita Chmielewski, Jim Youmans)

But back to local law enforcement… There’s something really fishy going on in our community, and it looks like the criminals are thumbing their noses to law enforcement, telling them to kiss their criminal asses. Since we published our article on the “Lost Felonies” back in March 2013, during the Deluca – Darlington clown show, we had hoped that things might have changed and that with a professional law enforcement veteran in the chief’s office, things would be getting done and done fairly and legally. We’re having our doubts, though.


sorry-no-change_smDeluca and Darlington had no qualms about doing whatever it took to keep their handlers happy and themselves in their jobs. Retaliation was the rule rather than the exception. Police abuse of power and harassment were routine. Obstruction of justice was the S.O.P. All you have to do is go back and search our articles for the horrible state of affairs in Ravena – Coeymans just two years ago. All you have to do is F.O.I.L. the list of complaints filed against the Coeymans Police Department and its officers. It’s in the public record. Our concern is that with Deluca and Darlington the law was ignored and abused — and all that with the complicity and cooperation of the local town and village courts and justices, not to mention the Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares — , and residents were not protected from the criminals; we have new faces in the Coeymans Police Department, and while the outright public abuse has disappeared from view, little appears to have changed in terms of public safety!


Residents and Businesses are Under Attack!

But there’s still something sinister going on. Crimes are being committed and the investigations are going stale, if the crimes are investigated at all. And Coeymans Town Hall and law enforcement does nothing but point fingers. McKenna cries that Crandall is depriving the Coeymans PD of resources to which the Coeymans PD is entitled; Crandall responds that Coeymans has no money (but he keeps hiring his minions and populating his office with numerous clerks and girly friends). McKenna blubbers that he doesn’t have the staff or the equipment to properly do his job but he doesn’t ask for help from the NYS Police or the Albany County Sheriff. So the criminals party and local businesses and residents are placed at risk. Is this the “serve and protect” and the government services we expect? Drop the egos you dumbasses; residents and businesses are under attack!

There is Hard Evidence and Corroborating Evidence!

There is Hard Evidence and Corroborating Evidence!
But local law enforcement in Coeymans and Greene County have gone erectile dysfunction, soft on crime!

Make your own decisions. Here’s the timeline on several incidents that have occurred to one single business owner living in New Baltimore and owning property and doing business in the Town of Coeymans:

  • On March 2013:  Scott Lendin vandalizes several vehicles at 9W Auto LLC, steals electronic equipment from one of the vehicles, is apprehended, “has friends in the Bethlehem PD”, appears before Phil Crandall, and goes Scott [no pun intended]  free. Admittedly, that was during the Deluca – Darlington police – state regime (see below for more on this). But let’s go on….
  • On August 2015:  All copper plumbing stolen out of 2530-34  property on Rt  9W, Town of Coeymans – over $7,000 to replace and repair the damage.  Still an open case with Coeymans Police Department. Just a few feet down the road, the insurance broker’s office was burglarized. Is that still open, too?  No update from Coeymans Police Department on this case, except that it’s still “open.”
  • On July 16, 2016:  Dealer plate stolen off auto in 9W Auto owner’s driveway. Greene County Sheriffs called for investigation. No update from Greene County Sheriff’s Department.
  • On September 12, 2016:  Ford Sedan set on fire on 9W Auto lot in the Town of Coeymans.  Reported to Coeymans Police Department for investigation. No update from Coeymans Police Department. Case still “open.”
  • On September 27, 2016: NYS dealer plates stolen while victims car, again the owner of 9W Auto LLC,  is parked at the New Baltimore Town Hall while owners are in court with suspect Stahlman. During the proceedings, Stahlman’s father is thrown out of court for being disorderly, and spends a couple of hours outside; during that time he and has motive and opportunity to remove the dealer plates during the time he is outside the courtroom.  The theft is notified to the Greene County Sheriff’s Department. No update on the investigation. Case still “open.” [Editor’s Note: The Town of New Baltimore has a Greene County Sheriff’s Deparment satellite station in the town hall. It was constructed with prisoner slave labor using prisoners from the Coxsackie Corrections facility.]
  • On October 3, 2016: The owners of 9W Auto LLC receive a text from telephone number 207-5523  “To get these back you will need to send $2000 dollars to as bitcoin wallet address. The text gives the victims one week to pay the ransom or threatens that the dealer plates will be sold, stating that “buyers are already lined up if you refuse.” Greene County Sheriffs Department, Gregory Seeley (R), notified and provided with information. No update from Greene County Sheriff’s Department. What in hell is going on here? Any questions, readers? The Greene County Sheriff’s department has a text from a working telephone number, and a message demanding $2,000 for stolen dealer plates, and what doe they do with this information? Your guess is as good as ours but they’re doing obviously NOTHING!!!!
  • On October 28, 2016: the owner of All Safe Storage, also the owner of 9W Auto LLC, was sitting in his office when a vehicle drove by and discharged a shotgun blast, perhaps two blasts, into the front door of the office, destroying the door and peppering the front of the building with pellets. The owner was in the office but fortunately was not injured. Yes, we reported on this drive – by shooting in our article Drive-by Shooting Arrives in RCS  Coeymans Police Department, NYS Police, etc. present at the scene. Investigation etc. The case is still “open.” No suspects have been arrested. Do you really feel safe in Coeymans?
  • Just a couple of days ago, on Sunday, January 29, 2017, the 9w Auto LLC owner arrives at his lot and  finds tires slashed and flattened on six cars and one truck –  The business owner called 911 for Sheriff assistance. Albany County Sheriffs deputies “busy at airport” and so the Albany County Sheriff’s Department contacted Coeymans Police Department.  A single rookie patrolman appears to investigate this major crime. Chief P.J. McKenna was notified of the criminal activity.  [Editor’s Note: After we left the scene, just a short time after the Coeymans patrolman left, we drove by Mayone’s Plaza and observed two Coeymans PD cars and two Coeymans patrolmen “processing” a motorist. We have to admit, they have their priorities, don’t they?] By the way, we have learned that on January 30, 2017, almost 24 hours after having discovered the vandalism, a Coeymans Police Department detective appears on the scene to investigate.  Several thousands of dollars in damage not to mention the fact that new tires have to be purchased and time and effort expended to replace the destroyed tires. Any guesses, readers, where this one is going?

In fact, we visited the crime scene on Sunday, shortly after the Coeymans patrolman left the scene, and we were shown plenty of evidence, even footprints showing how the perps entered the property and exited it, from the neighboring restaurant parking lot! There was even  — several patches of blood in the snow. Hopefully the rookie patrolman collecting the blood didn’t screw up the evidence!. Obviously the perps cut themselves when vandalizing the cars. Wouldn’t you think that the cops would be checking out the footprints and suspects to see if they had any recent cuts? Maybe. Time will tell but judging by the past performance of our law enforcement pros; we wouldn’t put any money on this bet.

Furthermore, it’s not as if these incidents are occurring hundreds of miles apart! They’re occurring at locations just a couple of minutes away from each other; it appears obvious that the victims are being singled out by a person or persons with an ax to grind. There is obvious motive and plenty of opportunity and several suspects are known. What we don’t understand is that with evidence like that text message and the demand for $2,000 that some law enforcement agency — Coeymans Police, Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, Greene County Sheriff Gregory Seeley, NYS Police — haven’t apprehended the criminals and why the perps are not in custody!!!! And where is Albany County District Attorny P. David Soares and Greene County District Attorney Joseph Stanzione on these crimes and the failure of their law enforcement people to take some action??? These are questions we can start asking when they’re campaigning for re-election soon.

We're on the case. We're investigating.

We’re on the case. We’re investigating.
Or is law enforcement just dancing the dance?

So, readers, who are the suspects? We don’t think we’re interfering with a police investigation —  if there’s any investigation being done at all — at this late point in time, so we’re happy to share what we have found out:

A couple of very obvious suspects are available, if the Coeymans Police are interested. There’s Zachary C. Stahlman who has a history of run–ins with the victims. Stahlman leased 1635 US RT 9w November 2015 with move in date of January 1, 2016.  Stahlman defaults on the lease in January and returns the keys in February.  Stahlman retaliates by bringing the landlords to small claims in New Baltimore Town Court, before failed and defeated New Baltimore Town Justice Lee Davis (D), and the case is heard by Davis on Sept. 27, 2016 for return of security/last months lease payment.  Davis loses the election and makes an 11th hour retaliation decision against the landlords. Davis’ decision dated December 31, 2016, more than 90 days later, is received by the landlords on January 6, 2017.  This is the Stahlman whose father is ejected from the courtroom for disorderly conduct. Still wondering where the dealer plates went? The case is being appealed by the landlords for obvious reasons. Former New Baltimore Town Justice Lee Davis (D) has quite a bit of baggage — his own brother turned on him — if you missed the drama, see our article, Double-Standard Davis: Asking New Baltimore for another Term as Town Justice?

Here’s the clincher: Our little friend Zachary C. Stahlman has a bit of a criminal history that goes back to 2010. Here’s what we found: On August 20, 2010 state police charged Zachary C. Stahlman, then 19, of Albany with fourth-degree criminal possession of marijuana and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon: a firearm, both Class A misdemeanors. Stahlman was issued appearance tickets returnable to Greenville Town Court. Now isn’t that interesting.  (Source: Daily Mail, Greene Police Blotter, Wednesday, August 25, 2010) And again, unlicensed driving: Zachary C. Stahlman, 25, of Albany, was arrested at 11:00 a.m. Oct. 20, 2016, and charged with aggravated unlicensed operation. This Stahman character has a bit of a history, doesn’t he? Wonder if the Coeymans Police or the Greene County Sheriff or anyone else picked up that little tidbits?

"Big Mouth" Hillman

Donald “Big Mouth” Howell

And another prime candidate with a big mouth is Donald J. Howell. Howell works for Capital Taxi in Albany. Howell’s wife, Miranda Cote, is allegedly an hourly employee with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance (information obtained from See Through NY). The suspect signed a one – year lease with the victims for property that was to be used as a flea market at 1635 US Rt 9W. Howell stopped paying rent in December 2016, and had no insurance. In October 2016, Howell rented 1362 US Rt 9W from the victims as a residence.  Howell did not pay January rent and was given 30 day notice in December to vacate premises.   Howell was identified by local Stewart’s store staff as having announced that he was going to damage the victims’ property. When the Coeymans PD officer was investigating the crime was offered the names of the witnesses he responded that ‘he didn’t need them.’ A NYS trooper on the scene took the names. Question: What did he do with the names?

Donald J. Howell was arrested by Cobleskill Troopers on May 15, 2014, in Troy unlawful possession of marijuana, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and a controlled substance in non-original container (Source: Daily Star, Police Blotter, June 21, 2014). that wasn’t Howell’s first brush with the law. Donald J. Howell, then 19,  and Duncan Clancy, then 16,  were charged on July 1, 2001, with an attempt at a class D felony; criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell; and criminal use of drug paraphernalia, second degree (Source: The Altamont Enterprise, Blotters and Dockets, July 19, 2001). There may be more on this druggie criminal but we’re not law enforcement and we’re not going to do their jobs for them. Did the Coeymans Police and the Greene County Sheriff miss this information, too?

What do the witnesses have to say? Have you even interviewed them?

What do the witnesses have to say?
Have you even interviewed them?

We’re just wondering if the Stahlmans and Howells have any relationship with the Greene County Sheriff’s Department or DA Joe Stanzione’s office. Is there a connection with the Coeymans Police Department or the Albany Machine? Do ya think there might be a connection?

Property owners and business operators in the Town of Coeymans and elsewhere are the pillars of the communities; they pay the majority of taxes that go into paying pubic employees, like law enforcement, and the salaries of elected and public officials. Property and business owners pay for our schools and libraries, too. The very schools and libraries and public services that the criminals and low-life like them are benefiting from at the expense of the very property owners and business operators they are victimizing, and the police are failing to protect! You certainly don’t think that the likes of the Stahlmans, Howells and similar trash are carrying their weight in the community, do you? and the What do you think you’ll have when the criminals drive out more business from Coeymans if law enforcement continues to drag its feet in ensuring that Coeymans and our communities are safe for us all? 

So, that’s just one victim, who has been victimized multiple times in recent months. Don’t you wonder why our local news media aren’t reporting these stories? Why is this all hush – hush? What is local law enforcement doing with their time anyway? Well, we do know that they’re not at NYS Thruway Plaza 22 enforcing the stop sign laws. And we do know that they’re not controlling the meanderings of the huge vehicles traveling up and down Rt 144 and moving through Ravena. And we do know that they’re not apprehending suspects or solving any local crimes. That we do know. And what we want now is answers. Lots of answers. And they’d better be forthcoming or we’re going to come down real hard on law enforcement with some real investigative reporting, and some probing questions. And we don’t think it’s going to be pretty.

One final question: When if becomes obvious that the criminals have the upper hand and that law enforcement is incompetent, how do citizens protect themselves and their property? When they drive by shooting, do we shoot back? When they trespass and vandalize our property, do we protect ourselves and our property? Or do we call 911 and get excuses and no answers? If the police can’t enforce the law and keep us safe, what about some good old frontier justice? What do you think?

When we're no longer safe...What do we do? The Editor

When we’re no longer safe…
What do we do?

Editor’s Postscript

It seems that local residents have short memories so we’d like to refresh your memories. Remember just a couple of years ago, the Deluca-Darlington police state persecuted the sitting president of the RCS Board of Education, who was wrongfully and falsely accused of harassing Josephine (Tracy) O’Connor, by allegedly calling her “fat.” The BoE president was arrested and arraigned, although eye witnesses reported that the accusation was totally false. See our article Congratulations!  Do you also remember that Josephine O’Connor’s father, alleged alcoholic and druggie, Joseph “Joe” Tracy accosted a local business woman at her place of business, hurling abuse and profanities, in the presence of eye witnesses, and when the woman attempted to file a complaint with the Coeymans Police Department, then part-time homey, Kerry Thompson, an employee of the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, cuddle toy of Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, refused to take the complaint! Of course, at the time Thompson was alledgedly “doing” bimbo rookie Dawn Crosier, who was later fired. Have you forgotten the harassment of local kids, the illegal searches and seizures. The false complaint made by Cathy Deluca about harassment in her illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center and the refusal of the Coeymans Police Department to follow-up even though a tape recording was produced in evidence showing she lied to the police. Coeymans PD Jason Albert was in charge of that investigation ignored the evidence against Deluca — most likely out of fear of “Dirty-Hands” Jerry Deluca’s and Dumplin” Darlington’s bullying — and did nothing (Albert has since been promoted to ‘detective’. Does a cop apprehend another cop’s hippo wife? Well, usually only if he wants to break off a piece of that ass candy. Promotion must be the reward in the Coeymans PD for obstructing justice.)Have we forgotten the regular harassment by certain Coeymans PD employees, the disappearing complaints, the disappearing felonies? The collusion of the Coeymans and Ravena Courts with their friends and insiders in Village Hall and Town Hall? And let’s  not forget the land-grab conspiracies of Laverne “Larry” Conrad — abusing his position as Town of Coeymans Code Enforcement Officer —and Michael Biscone — in his various conflict-of-interest roles as town/village attorney and real estate attorney — and their friends at the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. Conrad, Biscone and others had the Coeymans Police Department snugly and cozily in their hip pockets under the honchoship of Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca and his darling dumplin’  Gregory Darlington. In the meantime, Coeymans, your former dumbass fraud police chief, Gregory A. “Dumplin” Darlington is collecting more than $41,000 a year in pension benefits at your expense. And Jerry “Dirty Hands” Deluca is collecting more than $22, 000 a year in pension benefits for his abuse of Coeymans residents. Deluca and Darlington may have been forced to retire but they’re laughing all the way to the bank! The list could go on but all you have to do is search for a couple of names — you should know them — on this blog.  Are you ready to take action against the criminal takeover of your property and businesses? Our law enforcement leaders have to be made accountable to US! They have to answer at our town and village meetings! This includes our county elected Sheriffs, whom we elected to ensure enforcement of our laws and our public safety. If you agree, leave a comment!

For your information, local media, News 6, News 10, News 13, Times Useless, Columbia-Greene Media were all offered details of this story. So far no one’s published. We really matter, don’t we?

We’ve heard that an investigator employed by the Coeymans Police Department runs a side business installing surveillance cameras. It also appears that that investigator recommends his products and services to crime victims. If this is being done during or in the course of a crime scene investigation, it appears to us to be highly unethical, even a conflict of interest. We’re looking into this too. That sounds like something Josephine Bruno (a Biscone, at Prudential Real Estate) or Michael Biscone (also a Biscone) would do with Larry Conrad in their land-grabbing conspiracies. Josephine was in the Ravena Village Clerk’s office and connected with the Ravena Village hall and got insider information on properties in the area. It’s also no secret how Michael Biscone, a crooked attorney in Ravena, connived and conspired with Larry Conrad, Coeymans Code Enforcement Officer, and others, including contacts in the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, to start problems for local landowners and then to pick up the property real cheap. Let’s hope the story of the Coeymans PD investigator is just a rumor. But our experience and local culture would indicate that it’s very true.

In Praise of Teachers: Remember Who You Are!


It’s very important that you get the word out to all of your friends, family and neighbors before Mary 21, 2013. Do your part get out the vote and to clean up the RCS district and to put good, competent, and experienced women and men on the RCS board of Education!


 We Are Directing this Article, this Letter Actually, to the Teachers in the RCS Central School District, in the Appeal to Consider Who You Are in this Community, and How You are Being Misused and Misrepresented.

RCS Teachers Association President Matthew J. Miller Resorts to Poison Pen Letter But Will the RCS Teachers Fall for It?

RCS Teachers Association President Matthew J. Miller Resorts to Poison Pen Letter
But Will the RCS Teachers Fall for It?

I am addressing this letter to you as a colleague, as a fellow educator, as a teacher. I am addressing this letter to you, our teachers, as members of our community. I am addressing this communiation to our teachers and to our community because I am concerned.

Since ancient times, men, women, boys, girls have looked upon their teachers with admiration, respect, reverence, gratitude. Yes, even love. We have a certain spiritual connection with our teachers, whether in the early years, our growing up years, even into our adult years when “teachers” become “professors” and “supervisors.”

i love my teacherWe read the teachings of saints by whose example we are taught how to live a moral and ethical life. We read the lessons of sages and philosophers who teach us the metaphysical, and the transcendent nature of knowledge, mind, life, meaning.

There was a time when teachers were encouraged to be celibate because it was considered such a sensitive vocation, yes a vocation, similar to that of religious orders. By not marrying, they could exist in the world but not necessarily be of the world. Things change and so they ought to, but some things lose some of their special essence when they or the times change, don’t they?

With the workers movements in the late 19th century we saw churches and politics turn towards social justice for workers. We saw the creation and growth of workers unions, collective bargaining, and the improvement of the lot of the working class. Later, professions joined in the union movement. And so we have it today.

That was both a bane and a blessing, dear colleagues. We know why in the depths of our hearts and we can cogitate about it and rationalize it all but when we do so, we must never lose our hold on what a teacher is and her and his role in society.

Who in today’s society has such responsibility where parents, whole communities entrust their children to the care of one group almost every day, almost all day? Who in today’s society can say that they have the power, authority, and responsibility to build young persons in mind, body and spirit? It’s an awesome responsibility and an awesome privilege. Why on earth would anyone allow anyone from within their group to blacken or to diminish that sacred responsibility? Why would someone, anyone abuse that sacred trust?

Well, dear brothers and sisters, colleagues, that has happened insidiously when the teaching profession was taken over by unions and organized from outside of the community in which the teacher lives and works. That’s what happened when the holy vocation of teaching jumped with both feet into the world and became of the world. (We see similar changes after Vatican II when female religious communities were taken from their schools and thrown out into the world; their entire image changed as did their primary concerns. A tragedy!)

Even worse, the situation is aggravated when teachers become politically motivated, when they divorce themselves from their sacred function as arbiters of morality, ethics, and community, and start becoming, for lack of a better description, profane, ordinary, tainted.

Have you ever wondered why many denominations and religions prohibit their clergy and religious orders from running for public office or holding political office? Why judges cannot campaign on issues but only on the promise to be non-partisan in their interpretation of the law? For the same reasons that teachers are discouraged from public political activity and public dissent: they have an elevated status in the community that requires them to remain “clean.”

When one individual usurps the right to be the public voice of all teachers, all teachers lose.

We are all aware that the RCSTA (Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Teachers Association) is the local arm of the New York State United Teachers, NYSUT, the teachers union.

 That’s what’s happening now in your very midst. Matt Miller, writing “on behalf of the entire RCS Teachers Association Politial Action Committee,”” is endorsing some RCS board of education candidates and smearing others. Matt Miller the calls this blog “vile,” while publishing vague, ambiguous, and spurious statements on behalf of the RCSTA!  Does the teachers’ Code of Professional Ethics espouse double standards? Is that how the teachers of the RCS school district conduct their business?

We are publishing the full-text of that specious letter to allow the public, this community to make its own decision as to its appropriateness, its intent, and its purpose. Teachers and Mr Miller are employees of this community and the public and this community will be their judge.

Doesn’t a Teachers’ Association, a local teachers union chapter, lose some of it’s sacrosanct status when it jumps into the fray of profane partisan politics—especially when it presumes to endorse candidates of very questionable character on behalf of the district teachers? Since when does our district need a “Political Action Committee?” And shouldn’t that political action committee be advocating that teachers meet their statutory requirements, like training in the provisions of the Dignity Act and ensuring that the teachers are fairly treated. Not acting as the long-arm of local political agendas? Aren’t you embarassed by this display? 

One person, power-drunk, vindictive, retaliatory, egomaniacal is painting our entire community of teachers one single color, is speaking for all of you with one single voice, is announcing to this community one single political message: division, discord, misinformation. How long are the teachers of this district going to tolerate Mr Miller’s agendas?

We would be in a most regrettable situation if we expected our teachers to be clones of an ideal. It’s frightening even as a possibility because our educators must certainly represent not only the diversity of Knowlege we expect them to master but also to reflect the diversity of our world. This is what makes an exceptional education model truly superiorly exceptional. But it also has a darker side because it also means that the community of teachers must also reflect the moral composition of the community, that is, there will be saints and devils. We’d like to think the saints keep the devils in check but devils, by their very nature, are slippery little critters, and they’re crazy clever, too. Tradition teaches us that devils are master deceivers, master liars, masters of disguise. I’d only have to remind you of C.F. Lewis’ remarkable and instructive essay, The Screwtape Letters, for a wonderfully entertaining and eye-opening lesson in devilishness. You have devils among the saints and they are working their demonic agenda to poison this community as a whole, but also are taking a terrible toll on your reputation, on your image in this community.

You must do your own housekeeping, though. You must self-police.

Not only has it come to the point of putting a very questionable character, Gerald Deluca, in a position to spy and report on the RCS CSD transporation department and its employees, even despite the fact that a professionally trained, competent investigator/detective Stephen Prokrym, is on the Coeymans police force; your own union representative, Matt Miller, has gone rogue rabid.

While it is true that Mr Matthew J. Miller, your NYSUT representative, has experienced a number of crushing defeats, starting with the present BoE’s refusal to renew his $18,000+ a year double-dipping scam as “energy manager,” and culminating in recent defeats, it should be obvious that Miller’s recent desperate attacks on the board are more the result of desperation and retaliation in the guise of his official mandates. Miller obviously has lost self-confidence and reasonably has also lost the confidence of his constituency, and as a direct consequence of his personal failures, his professional shortcomings, and his political failurs, he is no longer capable of leadership. While I realize I am probably preaching to the choir, it is imperative that the majority of teachers, which is probably not involved in the deplorable, spurious, and specious political agendas we are suffering in this broken community, take this situation in hand and out of Mr Miller’s hands. He is making a tragic mess of a situation in which he should not be involved.

As you are probably aware, many professions include in their ethical statutes or Codes of Professional Conduct admonitions and prohibitions of multiple roles in professional relations. Put simply, you simply cannot serve two masters; one or both is going to get a bum deal, and that’s what we find happening in the RCS Central School District, particularly in the present example of Mr Miller’s role as teacher, taxpayer, union advocate, and political activist. He is spread all over the place and making a vainglorious attempt to establish himself as a leader. He is failing miserably.

One of the reasons for that failure is that he is not focused, and is blinded by his past failures. His agenda is one of half-truth and misinformation, finger-pointing, and polarization.

We have come to possess a recent letter that demonstrates perfectly all of our above points. The letter was provided to us by a teacher who has had enough of the cloak-and-daggar, it is dated May 4, 2013, it was sent out to “Fellow NYSUT MEmbers”, and it is underwritten by Matthew J. Miller and the RCSTA Executive Committee. One paragraph of that letter stands out as a glaring testimony to the spurious and specious tactics that Mr Miller and his associates employ when dealing with what should be dialogue partners. I am certain you know of the letter and its content but in order to refresh your information and to provide the entire text to our readers, we are providing a copy at RCSTA to NYSUT Members.

Taken in or out of context this single paragraph clearly illustrates the scandal, the mean spirit, the paranoia, the vindictiveness, the despair of the signatories, but especially of Matthew J. Miller, who is writing as YOUR, the teachers’,  representative. It is not a communication that should come from the pen of your representative, from the pen of someone who claims to be seeking consensus, much less from a teacher, from a person or persons to whom we entrust the hearts, minds, bodies and spirits of our children. You, as teachers, as professionals, as community members should be shocked that you should be addressed such a missive by a collegue who allegedy speaks with YOUR voices!

stop the lies

The offending paragraph (read the entire letter at Letter) reads in its entirety, as Mr Miller writes:

“It has become very clear that the present majority of the BOE is anti-tax and anti-government, not to mention anti-teacher. Ignore their rhetoric and examine their actions and this becomes very clear. Mr. Vadney, through his wife and child, still has a $15 million dollar notice of claim against the District while stating at the same time that he is looking out for the taxpayers. He has been arrested for his behavior against fellow BOE members and has a history of making threats against fellow members, yet claims to be bullied. He has been dismissive and rude to the minority and to any community member who does not share his views (and let’s not forget his brother’s vile blog and what info he supplies to that blog). Mrs. Sylvester, who ran as an “independent” voice last year, has voted 100% lockstep with the majority and even refused to speak on record about her stance on the budget. We need to restore the respect and integrity to this school community that these folks have wantonly destroyed in the process of making RCS a laughingstock in the Capital Region.”

I am not going to parse and analyze this text in its acrid perversity. Everyone in this community should be able to read it and process it for what it is: unacceptable and inappropriate misinformation devoid of any credibility. It is an embarassment to the teachers, to the District, and to the community who supports its teachers and which will very soon be voting on a budget that is adequate, responsible, and responsive. Anyone who has taken the time to follow its development and to get the facts straight will appreciate and acknowledge the prudence of the proposed budget.

We do feel we should comment very briefly on several points, however:

  • There is absolutely no basis in fact that the present BoE is anti – tax or anti – government. Absent any documentation or any statement of real facts, the statement made by MrMiller and the RCSTA Executive Committee and Political Action Committee is ambiguous, vague, and ignorant.
  • The editorial contributors to this blog have NEVER received input of any kind whatsoever from any RCS board of education member, much less from it’s sitting president, Mr John Vadney. Mr Miller’s and the RCSTA’s assertion is entirely false and intended to misinform you, the teachers, and whomever else might chance to read Miller’s missive. In fact, if Mr Miller has facts or information to support his accusation, we invite him to publish it. But if he has no substantiation or documentation, it’s your duty to confront him, teachers.
  • While we have addressed the purpose of a Notice of Claim, it has little to do with any lawsuit, less to do with the taxpayers of this district, and a great deal to do with notifying the RCS CSD of a serious problem that is in violation of NYS law and which does expose the District to serious liability and risk if the District administrators, teachers and staff do not get it under control. It has been addressed myriad times both in BoE meetings and outside of meetings. In fact, Mr Vadney’s son was brutally attacked when entering the school building, the event was captured on video tape. The then administration tried its best to keep it under wraps and to sideline the parents (this was not an isolated incident at all) and only when met with the former district administrations’ stonewalling did the parents have to bite the bullet to get the administration’s attention. NO LAWSUIT WAS FILED! So what is Mr Miller’s point? why don’t you ask him, NYSUT members.

In fact, ladies and gentlemen, we acquired evidence that Mr Matthew Miller was actually inciting such bullying but because of his “connections” was never publicly disgraced but did receive discipline. As teachers at the high – school, you are probably eminently well aware of this fact.

  • Mr John Vadney was framed by Mr Miller’s associates, including Ms Josephine O’Connor and her father, Joseph Tracey, O’Connor, whom you know well and also should be aware of her personal difficulties and her relationship with local ringleader Gerald Deluca (the same Gerald Deluca who is spying on your busdrivers). There were many witnesses, including a higher level NYSED officer, present who stood ready to testify in favor of Mr Vadney. The whole issue was a set up as was Mr Vadney’s arrest by local Coeymans police even after an order of protection was granted by a Bethlehem town judge. The matter was after a protracted battle summarily dismissed as having no basis in fact. This is the truth. It is public information and has been widely published in local media. Why then, we must ask you, is Mr Miller propagating this disinformation to his own colleagues and constituents?!?
  • In view of Mr Miller’s unsubstantiated claim that Mr Vadney has been rude and dismissive, the public record, unlike Mr Miller, does not lie. All one has to do is randomly review any of the many video recordings of RCS BoE meetings and make an informed decision. Nowhere whatsoever is there any evidence of rudeness or dismissiveness by Mr Vadney; quite the contrary, he is uniformly courteous, dignified, and respectful. Reviewing those same videos we can hardly say the same for Mr Miller’s various performances, nor for Ms Whalen’s or Mr Latter’s, even less so for Mr Deluca, Miller’s godfather.
  • Miller has absolutely no evidence whatsoever that Mr Vadney’s brother is operating a “vile blog.” If  Miller has substantial factual information to prove his statement, we would be delighted to see it. We are sure you would be, too.
  • Why Mr Miller has to pick on Ms Judy Sylvester is beyond us.  How she ran in the campaigning last year and how she votes is nothing that Mr Miller is competent to judge. Ms Sylvester, moreover, has indeed spoken several times on the record about her position on the budget. All anyone has to do is review the videos! In fact, her finals stand on the budget was to vote to approve it to put it out to the public’s vote! Where have you been Mr Miller?
  • As to the candidates being promoted by Matthew Miller on YOUR behalf, as YOUR RCSTA president, as the representative of YOUR NYSUT teachers union, just a couple of words:
    • James Latter. Mr Latter has a substantial history of misconduct that ranges from FERPA confidentiality violations to verbal abuse of students. We have in our possession internal documents incriminating Latter in some very serious connections that should have resulted in his immediate removal from the RCS CSD BoE, but for some uncanny reason, did not (during the regrettable and dark Smith regime). We are in the process of redacting specific names in those documents and will be publishing them soon on this blog. Once published, Mr Latter’s BoE career will be finished. Miller is or should be aware of these documents but he continues to promote Latter. Perhaps the teachers would benefit from a more substantial reason why Miller is backing latter.
    • Patrick Brown. Patrick Brown, in a very brief space of time as a candidate, has managed to present himself as simply what he is: a shyster who uses lawyer doublespeak to flamboozle his listeners. We’ve already mentioned the fact that he lives and is registered to vote at an address in Feura Bush (town of New Scotland) but said at a recent Meet the Candidate event that he lives in the town of Coeymans. Liar or fraud? Whatever. He then said that he did not support the school budget and would not vote to approve it. Yet his campaign signs are flanked by Vote YES! signs. Which is it? To the extent of our investigations no one has ever seen him at a BoE meeting, much less address the meeting. Now he’s asking for residents’ votes and is supported by your RCSTA president, Mr Matt Miller but no reasoning is given for this recommendation of support. There is no basis for such support in view of Mr Brown’s past lack of involvement in this district.

    Brown proudly announces that he is thick in government relations and an advisor to the Cuomos (Mario and Andrew). But aren’t these the very same Cuomos who have a track record of pulling every possible trick to deprive local school districts of state funding? Aren’t these the same Cuomos who have sucked every possible support from local governments only to pad the pockets in Albany and to embellish downstate moneypits like NYC? Aren’t these the same Cuomos who started all of this complicated and ingenuous 2% tax levy nonsense? And your RCSTA president and the RCSTA Political Action Committee are endorsing this Brown shyster?!? What are we missing in this picture? Maybe some sanity?

    • Jason Hyslop. Hyslop is running as a member of the Friends of RCS troika or triumvirate, whichever you prefer. He is vanilla and unconvincing, not that that in and of itself would disqualify, discredit, or denounce him. Our concern is his choice of company and how that will play out in his performance on the board. Can he be his own person or will be an owned member. He is at best unconvincing and his scripted responses do not represent convincing initiative or vision. So why is Mr Miller stuffing him down your throats? Best ask Mr Miller.

James Latter is a complete embarassment and should never have continued on the RCS BoE after the debacle of his having violated the FERPA law and having profanely disparaged a student. Peter Brown is an opportunist who suddenly appears out of nowhere (but he’s the husband of Mary Partridge-Brown, a close social and political associate of Matt Miller). Peter Brown’s record is one that is diametrically opposed to anything that would benefit our local school district. Moreover, Mr Brown has cast certain doubt on his integrity by openly misrepresenting his residence and making contradictory statements on the 2013-14 school budget. Mr Brown is patently a liar and a fraud. Jason Hyslop is his own unfavorable recommendation. Mr Hyslop had the option of running on his own, independently, honestly. Instead, he chose to be part of a troika in union with Latter and Brown. That was a very regrettable choice but it was a choice freely made by Mr Hyslop. Hyslop has thus identified himself and has made a clear statement of his principles and his agenda. Together with his inexperience, his ambiguous, scripted statements, his choice of running mates has spoken volumes. He’s part of the agenda and unworthy of the trust to be a board of education member.

 But the real challenge for Mr Miller is to put up or shut up. It’s inane to send out a letter to a group of sophisticated and highly educated colleagues when such letter is gibberish, a perfect example of a defense tactic. Don’t you want solid facts? Reliable information? Truth?

If one of your own number has had the courage to disclose this letter it can only mean that many more in your ranks are probably feeling the same way. Enough is enough!

But our question to you is this: How long are you going to allow Mr Miller to play his ridiculous games making believe he represents your interests. How much longer do you feel this community is going to tolerate this sort of doubledealing before there’s a backlash…against the very people the present board majority has supported 200%.

How long will the good teachers in this district continue to put up with being fed total nonsense, total dysinformation, outright lies before you step up to the plate and do the responsible thing: Say NO! to the lies, and YES! to the facts. In short be the educators we hope you strive to be and the educators you are being paid by this community to be. Ethical, rational, exemplary.

When all else is collapsing around our ears in this community and beyond, we have to have our ideals, our heroes, if you will. But those ideals, those heroes have to be credible, honest, trustworthy. As always, as instructors and educators, even as public speakers and presenters, we have to be aware of the impression we make on our audience. And it’s time to ask yourselves as community leaders, as educators, is the image that is being presented to us by your spokesperson Matthew J. Miller, the impression and image you want us to walk away with? Do YOU really trust him to speak for you, to represent you, to inform you?

 Matt Miller is spent, he’s passé, he’s in on the slippery slope to nowhere; our teachers are in this for the long haul. Stick with us. We need your support and we need our experienced, honest, and committed boardmembers, not Miller’s political agenda lackeys!

Obama and Soares Don't Lose with Dignity

Soares, Like His Godfathers Cuomo and Osama, Don’t Lose with Dignity

Here we have a Democrat State Governor, who like a sneak in the night, passes an anti-gun law, violating citizens’ constitutional rights. We then have to hear the Times Useless report that the state of New York is complaining that protestors caused $60,000 in damage to state capitol lawns by walking or standing on the grass. According to the Albany Times Useless:

The Feb. 28 rally at the Capitol building in Albany, NY, will mean a $60,000 bill for the state Office of General Services, the Times Union is reporting. OGS will spend that much to repair the grass at West Capitol Park, in the shadows of the state Capitol.

The Times Union reports that it was a combination of wet, muddy conditions and the large crowd at the rally. The rally was organized to oppose New York’s newly adopted gun control law.

[Source: Business Review, “Albany gun rally led to $60K in Capitol lawn damages,”  April 3, 2013.]

Of course, there’s no mention in the Albany Times Useless that the citizens were exercising at least three rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States: the right of peaceful assembly [and protest], freedom of speech and expression, the right to bear [and own] arms. Gee! Why would the Albany Times Useless support citizens when it can kiss Democrat ass in Albany? No, it wasn’t citizens protesting an ambitious, arrogant Democrat governor’s illegal and immoral act, it was the lawns!

Now, seriously, do you think anything, a single word would have been said if the demonstrators were black or hispanic? Now be honest. The majority of protesters were white men and women, people who own their guns legally—or should I say owned them legally—so they were the usual fair game. Need I say more?

Sore-ass Soares’, he’s got a case of sore ass after getting it kicked so often by federal and state judges, of course he has has a bad case of ego-dysfunction a.k.a. minority complex. But, of course, as a minority, he can do no wrong. So we’re going after the Oreo!

David_Soares bearded

Soares: “It’s nobody’s business.”
Sorry, Bucko, (you arrogant b*&%#@d) you’re an elected official (or did you conveniently forget that fact). It is our business what you do in your office with your personnel! Especially if it involves BOINKING!

And speaking of immoral acts, we must also mention the Albany County District Attorney, P.[udenda] David Soares, who likes to dip his pen[is] into company [p]ink and then, when he gets caught, finds his piece of sugar fluff a job in county government. (Soares’ reaction to reports that he is in a relationship with a legal secretary in his office is that it is “not improper” and is “nobody’s business.” What do you think?) And what about that paradigm of Democrat values, Governor Andrew Cuomo and his live-in girlfriend. Even Roman Catholics are up in arms about his concubinage and his receiving sacraments from ultra-liberal Roman Catholic bishop Howard Hubbard! (Read about it at Cuomo’s Catholic Concubinage.) [Editor’s Note: It must be mentioned that Howard Hubbard’s practices and programs ares not representative of or supported by the mainstream Catholic church hierarchy, most RC bishops, and the majority of Roman Catholics. Obviously, Albany is the best place for him and his supporters.]

Yo' Go Daddy So'Ass. Yo' Got Ma Vote!Now break off a big piece o'dis ass-candy!

Yo’ Go Daddy So’Ass. Yo’ Got Ma Vote!
Now break off a big piece o’dis ass-candy!
Try to control yourselves David, Mario. This is a public blog.

When you really come down to it, when you have no program, no delivery, no convincing message, and you got no style, you have no choice but to pander to the unwashed masses, promising bread (and delivering stones), and you can’t afford not to use the race-card. That’s the only way our Arrogant Oreo Club of Stooges manage to get elected. Look at Barack Hussein Osama…oops! Obama, P.[udenda] David Sore-ass, and Andrew “Sneak-it-in-the-Backdoor” Cuomo, who did all his race purchases while HUD secretary, and promptly blew it all away with his overenthusiasm with the gun bill!

But Here’s the Ultimate in Harassment and Retaliation as Only P.[udenda] David Sore-Ass and His Nazi Keepers Can Do:

P. David Sore-Ass and the RCS Coeymanazis/Albany Political Machine Are Appealing Judge Ryan Donovan’s Decision to Dismiss All Charges Against RCS Board of Education President John M. Vadney.

This is the same tactics used in Nazi Germany and in Stalinist Russia: Take over the police, the courts, and then use them to harass and retaliate. Intimidate the citizen. Overrule justice and law to achieve your nefarious political agendas. Once they make sure everyone knows that the police do not serve and protect and the courts do not administer justice, then we are all slaves to the system.

Obama, Cuomo, Soares, and little trolls like Deluca, Miller and their Minions are Burning the Constitution

Obama, Cuomo, Soares, and little trolls like Deluca, Miller and their Minions are Burning the Constitution

Now, really, we have to ask ourselves several questions:

  • Who is so obsessed with pursuing a case with no merits, no hard evidence, no facts, and no hope of success? Everyone had a fair chance to present what they had, to put their cards on the table, and an impartial judge found that there was no case. What more is to be done, other than retaliate and harass, Mr Sore-Ass?
  • What is the motivation to pursue a case that dragged on and on for almost a year? If the D.A.’s office has such a good case, why didn’t the so-called special prosecutor move forward with it and go to full trial, like Mr Vadney has been demanding all along?
  • Why, if the case was such a slam-dunk, didn’t Soares’ so-called hot-shot special prosecutor run with it, make quick work of it? After all, if the case is worth pursuing and, despite a judge’s ruling dismissing it, still looks so good,it would surely be a no-brainer and “easy money.”
  • Why is this case so important that the Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares, feels it’s so important to spend more public money and valuable time on it? This isn’t a brutal  murder or robbery case. This isn’t a horrible rape case. This isn’t a high profile political bribery case. In fact, it’s a case that state high court judges have called “unconstitutional.” Several New York state high court judges have refused to prosecute harassment cases because they claim they violate 1st Amendment free speech and free expression rights! So we really have to ask Mr D.A. Sore-Ass, what’s your agenda, Mister? Whose axe are you grinding? What are you getting out of it?

If P. David Sore-ass would take our good advice, he’d benefit from listening to the sentiments of RCS residents regarding the dismissal of the charges against Mr Vadney (go to the RCS Board of Education site and review the video of the April 2 meeting). Residents who took the podium congratulated Mr Vadney on the news of the dismissal and to a man/woman, expressed relief that it was finally over. To a man/woman they admitted that it was a sham and that there was no truth to the charges. Now, Sore-ass, if you can’t read the writing on the wall, let me do it for you: Vadney has community support. You don’t. They think you’re a drug adled jerk for keeping this thing alive.

But then, Albany County D.A. P. David Soares has been made to look stupid by so many judges already, maybe he’s turned into a judge-hater and is just trying desperately to make a come-back. Or maybe he’s just a despicable self-loathing troll who is more into bullying and intimidation than doing a good job. Maybe he just doesn’t have the right stuff and, like Obama, got snookered into getting elected because the Dems like to play the minority card when in a corner.

It’s a he-said-she-said case of one man allegedly calling another man names! Name-calling is what’s being prosecuted and there’s no evidence that Mr Vadney called anyone names. All witnesses will testify that the allegations against Mr Vadney are simply not true!

It’s a case where the first defendant Joseph Edward “Joe” Tracey allegedly has a history of alcohol and drug abuse and Lord knows what else, went ballistic in front of witnesses, harassed Mr Vadney on the telephone with witnesses while on speaker phone, bad-mouthed the Bethlehem Police and got himself arrested and arraigned, had an order of protection issued against him several times, violated the order of protection at least once and admits it in a sworn statement.

We then have this character Joe Tracey making a complaint against, defaming a respected member of the community, a member of the Board of Education, twice elected to be president of the Board of Education, never exhibiting any behavior like that described by Tracey in his complaint. Anyone who knows Vadney knows him to be the picture of dignity, decorum, respect in his conduct of public business as board president, a loving father and husband, in other words, the guy you want to be your neighbor, your friend (and, by the way, he is!). Mr Vadney is the man this Community elected to be their representative to decide what’s good for their children and the RCS community has done that at least three times. His board members, also elected by the RCS Community to make education decisions for their children and their schools, have elected him to be their president, TWICE!

And some nobody, Joseph Edward “Joe” Tracey, a social derelict with a lunatic daughter who was estranged from him for years pops up out of nowhere and harasses not only Mr Vadney but threatens Mr Vadney’s family so that Mr Vadney has to get an order of protection against Tracey to keep him away from Vadney’s family. What does Tracey get from the special-prosecutor assigned by Albany County D.A. Sore-ass Soares, read it in the Albany Times Useless: 6-months probation! That’s the kind of guy you want in charge of your kids’s education, right. That’s the kind of guy you want as your neighbor, right? That’s they kind of guy you want to invite over for spaghetti and meatballs before the game. Is it, really?

Or maybe Soares is so insecure that he’s ashamed that his malicious and prolonged harassment of Mr Vadney on a no merit charge was judiciously and fairly dismissed because of the lack of truth and factual basis. lee kindlonOr is it that Soares’conspiracy with his political sewer friends in Ravena-Coeymans has been foiled by the law firm of his former opponent, Lee Kindlon,  the former prosecutor in the US Marine Corps and son of prominent lawyer Terence L. Kindlon. A smart young attorney, G. Calabrese, of the Kindlon law  firm is representing Mr Vadney. Soares has no military record, much less one that comes even close to Lee Kindlon’s brilliant service (read more about Lee Kindlon here). In fact, Soares, apart from his seedy intimacy with the Coeymans police department, has a reputation for being soft on drug crimes (do you really wonder?) and made some comments at a conference in Vancouver, Canada, that angered American law enforcement, attracted criticism from Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings, and harsh comments from the Police Union, including demands for Soares’ resignation. Maybe his softie attitude on drugs and his animosity towards professional (not Coeymans p.d.) law enforcement should get Soares disbarred (see A call for David Soares to resign). He’s had some serious ethical problems and has been reprimanded a number of times. Let’s see, soft on drugs, doesn’t like law enforcement, minority votes. Is there a connection here? Do you think Soares is pandering for his minority votes?

The Coeymanazi Trio of Stooges: Gerald "Dirty-Hands Jerry" Deluca, Jerry's Bleach-Bottle Cathy Deluca, and Matthew "Matt-the-Mutt" MillerA toxic Mix of Police Corruption, Moll and Union Involvement ties in With the Abuse of Public Office and Albany Corruption by D.A. Sore-Ass

The Coeymanazi Trio of Stooges: Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, Jerry’s Bleach-Bottle Cathy Deluca, and Matthew “Matt-the-Mutt” Miller
A toxic Mix of Police Corruption, Moll and Union Involvement ties in With the Abuse of Public Office and Albany Corruption by D.A. Sore-Ass

We’ve reported extensively on all of these characters: the Deluca Duo and Matt-the-Mutt. The Deluca Duo have a long history of Coeymanazi activity. Miller has an axe to grind because the Vadney board refused to renew Miller’s plum double-dipper position as “energy manager” that netted him a cool additional $10–18K a year of taxpayer and school budget money in addition to his outrageous teacher salary and benefits. Miller is the local teacher union, New York State United Teachers a.k.a. NYSUT representative. Miller’s been knocked down to size by the board in recent months, thanks also to superintendent Dr Alan R. McCartney’s zero-tolerance of trouble-makers.

Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” has a colorful history. BoBo Cop allegedly received a degree from SUNY Plattsburg in political science (Do you believe that?) but apparently has no law enforcement or criminal justice education or training that would qualify him for his position as “police investigator” on the Coeymans police department. Apparently also, he’s extremely unpopular with the department, except for his adoring relationship with police chief Gregory Darlington. So why’s he there? Ask thug-collector Gregory “DoDo Cop” Darlington.

Deluca has his fingers in a number of pies, besides Cathy’s. He says in his online résumé that he’s a consultant with ARANY, an automotive recycling organization. He says he’s a consultant with the NY state Department of Environmental Conservation, a principal in Deluca Public Affairs (no pun intended), and a director at the so-called Main Street Small Business Coalition. He also says he was a former employee with the NY state Assembly (No one we contacted at the NY state Assembly knows anything about him, though). But his alleged connections with the DEC and with ARANY (note that bottle-blond Cathy is wearing a pink ARANY sweater in the pix above) raises some questions of conspiracy and misuse of public office, given some of the harassment that has been going on recently of local businesses and residents by the DEC and local officials close to Coeymans town government, especially the town building inspector, Laverne “Larry” Conrad, and others.

So, either Deluca is falsifying his résumé and he is lying about his business contacts or he is telling the truth and is compromising his objectivity as a police employee, and possibly misusing his public position and privileges to benefit his other “business” activities. I say an investigation is in order here and call upon the State Attorney General to investigate Deluca’s “connections.”

Deluca recently made a very disturbing remark at a school board meeting when he allegedly stated that he knew how people voted. (Board of Education Meeting of 3/26/13. Deluca: “Last year there was a number of people on the board that voted for the budget here at the meeting. I am concerned that some of those who voted for it at the meeting went out and voted against it.”) Now how and where would he have access to such information. Isn’t our vote supposed to be secret? Is Deluca misusing police information resources? But how would the police get our voting information? Or is he working with someone else, too? Board president J. Vadney responded: “The board of education approves a budget to go out to the public; the personal votes of the members are personal, confidential, if not secret.” Didn’t you know that BoBo?

But maybe that’s the secret to Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca’s longevity. It’s very possible that Deluca has been misusing his police privileges and access to privileged information all along to access background information and then to use it to his or his friends’ advantage. Now wouldn’t that be a nice fat official investigation. Could send old “Dirty-Hands” down the river for a couple of years. Nah! His bed-buddy Soares probably would get him off with 6-months probation. Maybe he’s got some dirt on Soares?

Is Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca A Dirty Cop?

Is Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca A Dirty Cop?

And then we have the local Coeymanazis and the teachers clique on the RCS Board of Education. You must have noticed that there’s a power war going on between the teachers and the teachers union, New York State United Teachers, represented locally by Matthew J. Miller a.k.a. Matt the Mutt. You can’t have forgotten already the underhanded tactics used by Miller, the Deluca pair, Dirty-Hands Jerry and his Bleach-Bimbo, Cathy Deluca, and you can’t ignore the results of the investigations and the complaints by residents centering on the voting and polling irregularities? You’d have to have advanced Alzheimer disease to have forgotten all of that already, especially with new elections just on the horizon.

So, our guess is that our Albany County D.A. friend, P. David Sore-Ass, is working hand-in-glove with the Coeymanazis and the teachers union, New York State United Teachers (NYSUT, Matt Miller’s godfathers) to attempt to oust Vadney from the BoE. Once Vadney’s gone, they will go after the other members supporting Vadney. When that’s done, your at the mercy of the union and the Coeymanazis. Next, they’ll get rid of Dr McCartney and put one of their puppets in the position. Now the teachers, the teachers union, the Coeymanazis in Ravena-Coeymans, and the Democrat Machine in Albany has control of the schools here, and the school budget. Watch RCS become a ghost town before your very eyes!

You can’t have overlooked the attempts by board members and teachers or teacher’s spouses on the RCS board of election to force other elected board members to resign. Of course, the public saw through those stupid attacks and told Alice Whalen, Howard “Bray” Engel, James Latter, Tracey Traver (former member, not relected), Josephine Tracey-O’Connor (disgraced former BoE member, daughter of Joe Tracey of misdemeanor harassment fame), and Edward “Teddy” Reville, and loudmouths Deluca, and their Coeymanazi mob to “Shut up” and get on with board business! Even Matt-the-Mutt Miller of double-dipping-bully-monger fame has had to curb his union-speak and shut up for once.

They all came out in arms and screaming when they found out Dr Alan R. McCartney was to be hired to fix the mess created by outgoing teachers union lacky Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith. Matt-the-Mutt Miller was frothing in his denunciations of both the Vadney-led board and of Dr McCartney, as were “concerned” parents. Sure, they loved being the bottom feeders of the regional schools with the highest per student cost ($21,000) in the region, maybe even the state, and some of the lowest graduation rates. How dare they consider Dr McCartney, who had Vorheesville’s grad rates up in the high 90’s. They dreaded McCartney. Why? Because he is a professional superintendent hell-bent on getting results and trimming fat. McCartney’s not one of the local teachers, like Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, whose loyalties were clearly not with the residents and taxpayers! (Are you surprised that after having taken the superintendent’s position she stayed long enough to pad her retirement check (less than a year) and then hit the community with a surprise retirement announcement?)

And then there are the loudmouths who have some pretty shadey connections. Take local loudmouth Gerald “Jerry Dirty-Hands Deluca” who, as we mentioned above,  is on the payroll of the Coeymans police department as an “investigator.” Deluca has no police investigator credentials, was fired by the previous police chief, and re-hired by the present Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington (who had to take the chiefs exam at least 3 times before he could pass the thing!). Darlington has also hired local Psycho-Cop Ryan Johnson (a reject from the Cairo p.d.); Johnson’s likely to be the driver of the Coeymans police vehical that races down the road in a bad case of road rage. Darlington also hired his brother-in-law Kerry Thompson to be his personal admin assistant at more than $31/hour, and who employs a number of part-timers from outside the community to police this community.

If you’ve ever driven in the town of Coeymans and seen a police vehicle coming from the opposite direction and can’t stay on its side of the road, or if you see a Coeymans police  vehicle with its wheels in the air, you’re also likely to see a blond female behind the wheel. That’s Coeymans police officer D. Crosier–drives like a drunk, crossing the centerline, migrating over to the shoulder, occasionally wrecking a Coeymans police vehicle. She’s another prize bimbo addition to Darlington’s credit.

Stop This Brew Before It Infects You, Too!

Stop This Brew Before It Infects You, Too!

Add to this toxic stew the unbelievable involvement of local Coeymans town attorney Gregory Teresi (Dem), son of NY state Supremse Court judge Joseph Teresi (Dem)  (formerly a village and town attorney in Ravena-Coeymans), the corrupt practices in the village of Ravena government with its incestuous relationships and intermarriages between village trustees and town and village justices, the involvement of the shyster family of Biscones and their former partners the Rotellos, who is now working with the NY state Appellate Divison, the NY state court that hears appeals and is in charge of attorney discipline. Then you have the real-estate moguls and their connections in village and town government and the abuse of public office that goes on between the town of Coeymans, the office of the building inspector, and the DEC, and you can’t but hold back the vomit.

weeping liberty 1

Yes, there’s a very toxic stew brewing, as you can see. There’s Albany County Democrat Machine Corruption, local corruption in the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans, and then there’s union involvement with the New York State United Teachers.

We eased off the scoundrels in recent months because they seemed to be quieting down but they’ve been quietly hatching plots. Crooks never give up because they’re infected with the worm of greed and avarice. They’re lousy with the lice of pride. But they’re blind to their own evil and that’s where we get them.

CONGRATULATIONS! MR JOHN M. VADNEY!!!

 Albany District Attorney P. David Soares Got Another Faceful of Rotten Egg Today When a Town of Bethlehem Judge Dismissed All Charges Against Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District Board of Ed President

Mr John M. Vadney

 animated_4th-of-July-fireworks

All Charges were Dismissed for Lack of Evidence as there was “No Truth to the Charges.” Not Only Does Mr John Vadney Deserve this Commuity’s Hearfelt Congratulations for Having Stood His Ground Like a True Hero and Holding Out Against the Forces of Evil in His Community, He Should Demand a Public Apology for the Harassment He Received at the Hands of  Arch-Corrupt Albany County District Attorney P.[udenda] David Soares, the Albany Times Union a.k.a. Albany Times Useless, the Local Rags (the Official Newspaper of the Coeymanazis, the Ravena News Herald) and News Channels 6, 10, and 13!

rat-poisonFurthermore, Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares Should Be Drummed of Public Office and Barred from Practicing Law in New York State or Anywhere Else for the Outrageous Travesty of Justice and the Shameful Waste of Public Money in His Relentless and Malicious Attempt at Prosecuting an Innocent Man. If Soares and his lackeys had a set of rat’s balls among them they would have been honest and ethical in view of the total lack of facts and the circumstances and refused to get involved. But NO! Faithful to their Albany Democrat Politics they had to join in the Coeymanazi retaliation. In other words, Albany DA obviously was involved in the Coeymanazi conspiracy!

soares-head-small

SHHH!
Soares Sucks

fat bastard traceyThe case has been dragging on and on since May 2012, when Mr Joseph “Joe” Tracey, father of sociopath Josephine ‘Tracey-O’Connor, famed former RCS board of education clown and wannabe teacher, filed trumped up charges against Mr Vadney, alleging Mr Vadney called him names. The more than 200 pound lump of wuss-flesh was allegedly part of a conspiracy to embarass Mr Vadney and a feeble-minded attempt to force him to resign from his position as board president. The idiotic circus program was hatched by the Coeymanazis nesting in the Coeymans Police Department and in the RCS high-school where New York State United Teachers local rep, Matthew “Matt-the-Mutt” Miller, is the inside man for the teachers clique on the RCS board of education.

The so-called teachers clique made up of Alice Whalen, Howard “Bray” Engel, James “Jimmy” Latter, and Edward “Teddy” Reville, at the time of the fraudulent charges also included whacko-woman Josephine O’Connor and Tracey Traver, both of the teachers clique. The clique was actively supported by the likes of Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca and his bottle-blond partner, Cathy Deluca, and a ragtag bunch of psycho victims who were capable of just about anything, judging by the likes of Joe Tracey and his daughter Josephine Tracey-O’Connor.

It seems that after the 2012 budget vote was passed under suspicious circumstances under the guidance of Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca and his mob of Coeymanazis, and with the backing of the NYSUT nuggie Matt-the-Mutt Miller, the Coeymanazis and the teachers union’s  only way to deliver on their empty promises was to control the board of education.

Congratulations Mr Vadney & Supporters!

Congratulations Mr Vadney & Supporters!

But Mr Vadney’s group was voted in and took the majority, grabbing the prize and the board out of the teachers and Coeymanazi’s greedy kleptomaniac hands. Mr Vadney was confirmed as president of the board and Mr Michael Robbins was elected to be vice-president.

Readers will recall that we covered the events extensively on this blog and you can search the blog to read all of the real facts.

Readers will also recall how the teachers clique and the Coeymanazis made every attempt to oust Mr Rodney Krzykowski and to defame Mr Jeff Lukens. Neither conspiracy worked.

Judge Judy:WTF!?!

Judge Judy:
WTF!?!
She can’t believe what goes on in RCS!

Mr Joe Tracey was allegedly put up to first harass and to threaten the board president’s family when Tracey, gutless coward that he is, appeared at the offices of the family business and verbally abused Mr Vadney’s sister. Of course, there were witnesses, but when Ms Vadney attempted to file a complaint with the Coeymans Police, Kerry Thompson refused to take the complaint. A female police officer who asked not to be identified later informed Ms Vadney that what Thompson had done was wrong and that she, the officer, would make sure it got into the file. (You’ll also recall how we broke the story about Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington’s hiring of Thompson to be his personal assistant at mre than $31/h!) Coeymanazis take care of their own!

So there is evidence that the Coeymans Police Department was involved in the conspiracy not only with Thompson’s refusal to take the complaint against Tracey but also the fact that Gerald “Dirty-Hands-Jerry” Deluca is a close friend of Josephine Tracey-O’Connor, the one who claimed that Mr Vadney called her “fat” (well, actually, she’s not what you would really call petite).  Witnesses to the entire scene testify that no such thing ever happened. It was a bare face lie.

So, dear readers, Truth and Justice won in the end, and that doesn’t happen often in this RCS community or in Albany County so we are all witnesses to a truly historic moment.

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.

a.k.a. Bobo Cop

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.

Thomas E. "Tom" DolanChampion of MidHudson Cablevision Deals

Thomas E. “Tom” Dolan
Champion of MidHudson Cablevision Deals

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.

NYSUT Union Rep at RCS

 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.

Albany DA Soares Continues Retaliation, Persecution

Since the Office of the Albany District Attorney is a Regular Reader on this Blog, Mr Soares, We Would Strongly Suggest You Also Check Out the Comments Section, If You Don’t Already!

Since About May 31, 2012, the Albany District Attorney, P.[udenda] David Soares, Has been Persecuting Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Board of Education President John M. Vadney

on the Grounds of a Facially and Factually Fraudulent  Harassment Complaint made by Former School Board Member Josephine (Tracey) O’Connor’s Father, Joseph Tracey

P. [Pudenda] David Soares

P. [Pudenda] David Soares
Albany County District Attorney
Has Plenty of Ethical Problems of His Own

What the Albany Times Union (a.k.a. Albany Times Useless) and the local rags don’t tell you…and the RCnaziS (Coeymanazis) don’t want you to know:

Yes! It’s our hypocritical Albany District Attorney, reliable cog in the wheels of the eternal political corruption of the Albany Democrat machine so deeply imbedded in Albany politics, who is persecuting the RCS board of education president, John M. Vadney, on a cooked-up charge of harassment. On January 8, 2013, our Albany DA P.[udenda] David Soares’ special prosecutor–Yes! You read correctly, a Special Prosecutor, Paul Webb, appeared in Bethlehem court to AGAIN postpone resolution of the trumped up frame-up of the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk school board president, Mr John Vadney. Can you imagine the stupidity of pursuing this fraudulent, politically motivated persecution at taxpayers’ expense!

Who-is-your-JudgeWe’ve seen and read the illiterate so-called Witness Deposition sworn to by Joseph Tracey, under the inept supervision of Coeymans police bobos Thomson and Crosier (see below), and it’s beyond comprehension that any judge with even a half a brain wouldn’t have looked at it and thrown it and Tracey, together with the idiot Coeyman’s cops who took it, Crosier and Thompson out the nearest window! (Yes! that’s Kerry Thompson,  who is married to Coeymans police chief Darlington’s sister, the same corrupt Coeymanazi who refused to take a local businesswoman’s complaint that that same Joseph Tracey harassed her and threatened her family!). The deposition is a mass of confused statements and contradictions. Moreover, it was taken by the Coeymans police the day after Tracey had been arrested by the Bethlehem Police and released. It’s obviously a halfwit’s attempt at getting back at Mr Vadney. Lest we forget, Joe Tracey, Josephine O’Connor’s ‘til then estranged father, who is a very good friend of Gerald “Dirty-Hands Deluca of Coeymans police department and Coeymanazi fame, claims to have been called a “homosexual” (I can hardly believe that that word would be in Joe Tracey’s vocabulary!) and that he was insulted. Poor pussy cat!

fat-cat

Joe Tracey, the Poor Kitten!

Now that’s fact.  Joe Tracey says he asked Mr Vadney to call him about some statement made 10 days earlier to Josephine O’Connor. All of a sudden, 10 days later, Tracey needs to talk to Mr Vadney about something said to Tracey’s adult daughter, married, wannabe teacher, at the time a member of the RCS board of education. We’d like to remind you that Josephine O’Connor’s statement is not supported by any witnesses and, in fact, several people present at the time say the incident never happened. In his deposition, Tracey actually admits in so many words he was not there but he’s got to talk to Mr Vadney about the incident. Well, Tracey does talk; in fact he talks his way to jail on a charge of aggravated harassment, a misdemeanor.

So, Tracey gets out. Mr Vadney gets an order of protection to keep Tracey, who threatened Mr Vadney and his family, away. Next day, the Coeymans police show up at Mr Vadney’s home, cuff him, and cart him down to Coeymans. The charge: You guessed it, aggravated harassment.

But Mr Vadney’s due process rights are violated multiple times. He isn’t read his rights at the time of arrest, he isn’t arraigned after his arrest, in fact he doesn’t even know Why? he’s been arrested!

In fact, the Coeymans police had to make several attempts at writing up the Appearance Ticket issued to Mr Vadney. Get this: The Coeymans police, Thompson and Crosier, had to generate no less than five, FIVE, appearance tickets, each one correcting the one before. Yes, they couldn’t even get the appearance ticket right without having to redo it five, FIVE different times!!!!

Both town of Coeymans judges didn’t want to touch the case and they recused themselves! Local BoBo judges were scared shiteless to touch the case! So Bethlehem town court had to take the case. And that’s where it’s stuck for the past almost 7 months. Does anyone smell the nasty retaliation rat here?

WTF

WTF!!!

FalconeBorsellino

I Have Gotta A Deal You Can’ta Refuse!

Our buck is on the bet that the local Mafiosi and Coeymanazis, all Democrat tools, in RCS are behind the persecution and retaliation to coerce a resignation–they’ve been trying forever to oust the non-teachers from the RCS board of education. You see, once they get enough non-teachers to resign from the board, the teachers clique and the teachers union, Matt Miller and NYSUT, will have free reign on the budget and programs. And you all know damned well where that’s going. This persecution thing has been going on forever: first they tried like hell to get Rodney Krzykowski to leave by calling him a terrorist, a scofflaw, a tax-evader. Of course, none of that was true. Then they went after Jeff Lukens, even allegedly using his son in retaliation, but Lukens stood firm. Then back in May 2012, right after the preliminary results of the 2012-13 school budget vote–those same results are under investigation by the New York State Education Department because of allegations of irregularities and even fraud by the supporters of the more than $42 million school budget supported by the teachers and the teachers union, NYSUT, and a group of Coeymanazi-brainwashed residents–they set the board of education up with a performance by sociopath Josephine (Tracey) O’Connor, who did the “He called me fat” performance at the RCS High School in front of voters. (She’s not exactly “petite,” let’s say.) But numerous voters and officials present and with Mr Vadney claim nothing of the sort happened!Then, Josephine O’Connor’s father, Joseph “Joe” Tracey, a man with a very colorful past involving, let’s just say “self-medication”, appears at a local business owned by a relative of the board president and then creates a threatening scene, intimidating the board president’s sister and threatening the board president’s family.

[Editor’s Note: We are indebted to a reader who points out that we shouldn’t foget that Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington’s wife is secretary to moron Albany County DA P. David Soares! There is a clear trail leading from the Coeymanazi nest of iniquity to Soares’ office!]

More Rogue, Retaliative Teachers

It Would Be an Understatement to Say that the State of Affairs at the RCS High School is Literally Ass-End-Backwards; And It’s the Prima Donna Teachers Who are the Delinquents, Not the Students!

Why Does RCS Have So Many Pinhead Teachers?

Why Does RCS Have So Many Pinhead Teachers?


Readers Comment

One reader asks: “Why is it we seem to get stuck with all the lunatic teachers and the good ones don’t stay?” Well, there’s some local wisdom that goes something like this: “Shit sticks…” While that’s only partially true, we do have some good teachers but they mind their own business and teach. The bad ones know a good thing when they see it; besides, they have nowhere else to go, nobody was someone else’s problems. And, furthermore, because we’re actually stuck with them, the community goes into denial, and forces itself to believe their precious assets and can do no wrong. It’s similar to having an old junker and putting money into minor repairs, finally, when the biggie comes up, we’ve got so much invested in it already we justify to ourselves going that extra mile. In the end we still have a junk car but we’ve invested a new car’s value in it! Doesn’t make sense but we do that. Same with teachers, elected officials, police departments. We have to admit to ourselves what is real and what is unreal or we’re doomed to remain an ongoing backwoods scandal. Another reader mentions that “unions are for bad teachers, the good ones don’t need a union!” How true. But the unions are there and they’re doing their damage…until we change that fact. Union or no union, parents and the community have the real power to make things change but we have to use it. This blog is an example of local power, and that local power has gone beyond community, county, state, even national borders. Our issues are now on the international map!


Now, that having been said… Here we have this character, and character he is, a character from some second rate Dork Tracey comic strip. Robert Dorrance. Excuse me, “ProfessorRobert Dorrance (it seems he really likes himself, thinks he’s pretty smart. But he’s actually quite, well, pathetic.) or so he likes to call himself. Sorry, Bobby Pinhead, you’re misrepresenting yourself when you give yourself titles like “professor.”  You’re simply an overpaid high-school teacher, bud.

Well, Mr Genius Dorrance recently stepped in a pile when, true to the abuse tradition at RCS High School, he writes up a student for not showing up in his class. Sounds like a reasonable thing to do, doesn’t it? Well, if you think so, you’d better pull your head out because if it looks normal and it’s RCS it’s probably really bizarre. And so it is. You see, several days before wonder-boy Bob Dorrance writes the kid up, his parents send in a notification that the student will be out for medical reasons; he was to have surgery.

You’d think that the geniuses at the High School would have the sense to communicate (for more on communications at RCS see our article “Zombification“). No way, José! Communicate? So, the student is out on a Thursday and a Friday, in surgery, recovering, and dud Dorrance writes the kid up. Nice going, Bobby “Pinhead” Dorrance!

We’ve received unconfirmed information that “Professor” Bobby “Pinhead” Dorrance is his own hospitality center, too. Seems that the teachers at the RCS high school are very special people, far above having to give a second thought about energy. Just set up your own hospitality corner in your classroom! Coffee anyone? One lump or two? Cream? Isn’t that the way it goes “Professor” Dorrance? Is that coffee pot and hospitality nook still in your classroom, Bob? Real energy conscious. Now where’s that principal, what’s his name, Brian? Brian Bailey? Isn’t he responsible for enforcing policy in the high school?

What's the next step, Mr Dorrance, table service?

What’s the next step, Mr Dorrance, white-glove table service?

Look, there is a distict policy that prohibits coffee pots, fridges, hotplates, and the like for personal use on school property. The main enforcers of the policy are supposed to be the head custodian and the principal. Yes, that’s Brian Bailey, isn’t it? HELLO! Principal Bailey, head custodian…look under your noses…waddaya see? Maybe they should be hauled in to explain to the RCS board of education, to the interim superintendent in public session, why this is going on in the high school. Can’t we expect teachers, administrators to be adult enough not to need personal supervision? Are these the people who are supervising the students!?! Is this nutz or wot? Ass-end-backwards is what it is!

Gimme my stipedn!!!

Gimme my stipend!!!

This is the same Bob Dorrance who was running the early morning weights room…for a stipend. Yeah, he’d go in early and open up the weights room for the guys but it wasn’t out of dedication or fellowship, it was for a stipend. $ MONEY $ Everyone in the system has to grab as much of the budget as possible. That’s why the highest-rated course at RCS high school is GREED, and the course is taught by real experts. Well, the district wised up when the teachers clique lost their majority and Bobby Boy lost his stipend. Bye-bye stipend. Enter evil Bobby Biatch…teachers get that way when they get caught with their hands in the taxpayers’ cookie jar…we now have a very unhappy “Professor” on the loose and he’s going to test the ice every chance he can, and punish anyone he can. Well, he can try…and he’ll answer for it, too!

And, lest we forget, this is one of the RCS Sports Association geniuses, you know the bunch of Coeymanazis who didn’t have have to answer to anyone. You know, the bunch who were an inch away from tax fraud…did I say an “inch” away? The same ones who finally didn’t come up with any documents but the did come up with an new RCS Sports Association with a new board etc. I guess it was easer to come up with a new association and board than it was to come up with the documents. Right?

Yes! I am your evil, greedy role model!</big?

Yes!
I am your evil, greedy role model!

And last but not least, we’ve put this guy in a central position as a role model for our young men: “Professor” Bobby Pinhead Dorrance is a [$ paid $] varsity football coach! Just the kind of role model we need for the young men…just the kind of guy we want them to grow up to be. A real hero! NOT! We have published plenty on our fine athletics coaches: abusing players, foul language losing matches, etc., etc. So Dorrance’s having found a cozy niche with the other clique members shouldn’t be a big surprise to anyone–except the parents of the athletes.

Foul-mouthed RCS coach loses match for athletes!

Foul-mouthed RCS coach loses match for athletes!

So, dear residents and taxpayers, we have a runner-up for the Matt “the Mutt” Miller American Kennel Club Butt-sniffing Award: Mr Robert “Bobby Pinhead” Dorrance for irresponsibility in the energy conservation efforts, student abuse, ignorance, and greed. Another product of your New York State United Teachers union ensuring that teachers get away with anything at your and your childrens’ expense. Your tax dollars at work, keeping hypocrisy alive and well in our RCS community!
