Gun-happy Hicks Teach A Lesson in Respect for Life: Shoot’em!

WHAT A SHAMEFUL WASTE!

WHAT A SAD, SAD MOMENT! WHAT A SHAMEFUL MOMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT! WHAT A DISAPPOINTING FIGURE THEY PAINT OF THEMSELVES! CAN’T EVEN CONTROL A BUNCH OF GUN-SLINGIN’ HICKS!

(And just when we thought things were starting to look up in the area. SIGH!)

Once a symbol of American freedom and tradition, they’ve become mere targets for some locals. Is there a lesson in this massacre? Is this a symbol of what’s happening to the very concept of American freedom and tradition? Is this a symptom of the deterioration of American respect for life?

dead buffalo head

IT MAY HAVE MADE OUR YAHOO-HICKS FEEL REAL MACHO
BUT IT MAKES US FEEL REAL SICK!

This just in — and unconfirmed but from a reliable source — local police departments respond to the presence of buffalo on a local property. The animals apparently swam across the Hudson River and arrived on a large piece of property on 9W where they apparently were grazing. Someone called it in to the local police and they made an appearance as if there were a major terrorist threat. Albany County Sheriff’s deputies, NY State Troopers. But worse still, a bunch of locals showed up with rifles and had a good ol’ time shooting fish in a barrel. And the police couldn’t control the yahoos! (Now confirmed by an eyewitness call in and several news media reports.)

Americans fear and deny death but love to kill…

It seems bizarrely contradictory, even schizoid, that in a country, the United States, where denial of death is so rampant, the thing we seem to do best no matter where we go is KILL. Nationally, we can’t even find most of the places we bomb on a regular basis, and we make lame excuses for killing our own people when playing our cowardly drone games (note recent news); locally, road-kill seems to be the local pastime; and our police? Well, let’s just say they really need some training on when to shout and when not to shoot. That applies to situations involving human beings and, as today’s events demonstrate, also to other creatures. Americans fear and deny death but love to kill. Think about that for a minute and then read on.

BLEEDING BUFALLOAll dead — at least fifteen dead bison. FIFTEEN!!! That’s what we pay our law enforcement to allow. KILL. Well, if they’re not themselves shooting minorities, who would sue if they got tranquilized — so a dead man can’t sue, we figure. But why allow 15 beautiful creatures to be shot — some not being killed immediately but allowed to thrash around in the brush before dying — because they’re slowing down traffic? Do we shoot Carver Laraway’s trucks? They stop traffic. And they make a mess out of our air and our roads. Do we shoot them because they’re a menace to public safety or slowing traffic?

It’s a sorry picture we have of our law enforcement and a scandal when we have to admit that Albany County Sheriff’s deputies and New York State Troopers can’t figure out a better plan than bullets and blood. It’s a pitiful lesson we teach our children when we teach that rather than appreciate majestic beauty and accept a little slowdown in traffic, it’s better to let a bunch of dangerous locals blow the creatures away. We can reroute traffic and close streets for paving operations or for some visiting VIP-dildo but when it comes to majestic life, blow it away. But the way it was done under law enforcement monitoriing and in the presence of law enforcement is where to look for the real scandal.

SHAME ON YOU BOTH!

SHAME ON YOU BOTH!

Why not give the New York State Police, Troop G, a call and, while you’re doing that, plan to call the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, to tell them how disgusted you are at this stupidity. There’s a video on News Center 6 — but of course they don’t show the carnage, that would be too much for the sensitive among us. But WNYT, News Center 13, tells the real story (go to Escaped bison shot in Coeymans), and if you go to that site, you will read:

“A state police helicopter was brought in to help track the herd that continued to roam through the woods and streets in Selkirk — that was until they were cornered in a ravine near County Route 101.

“That’s where police say shooters hired by the farm owners started taking the bison down one by one.

“However, things got heated between one of the shooters and Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, who wasn’t happy with the way the operation was going. Apple says the man was shooting blindly into the woods and left one animal wounded and thrashing around the river bed — a sheriff’s deputy grabbed the man’s rifle and he was taken away in custody.

“We ordered him to stop. He refused. I put him against the truck and detained him,” Apple explained.

“That man was released a short time later. Police are still trying to figure out possible charges. Authorities wanted to stress they did not want to kill the bison. They just had no choice given the situation.”

Real men, aren’t they? Real American versions of heroes …

Seems to us that 15 bison “cornered in a ravine” didn’t pose much of a threat to anyone and made it really easy to simply pick them off, mothers, calves, all of them. “Cornered in a ravine.” Real men, aren’t they? Real American versions of heroes, aren’t they?

Sort of reminds us of American drones being controlled by some “hero” 3 or 4 thousand miles away from the actual target, shooting a missile and killing a hundred or so innocent civilians. Collateral damage we call it. Or the Israelis shelling entire neighborhoods or attacking ghetto residents with tanks and bulldozers. Crowd control we call it. Or detaining hundreds without trial in a remote prison camp or operating secret prison camps with no due process. War on terrorism, we call it. How about National Guardsmen shooting unarmed students or the FBI massacring a religious community (Whackos in Waco). War on subversives we call it. But if another country, another culture does similar? Violation of human rights we call it. The bison and their massacre at the hands of impotent law enforcement and lunatics with guns is just a metaphor, a small but meaningful picture of what we’ve become as Americans, as sub-human beings.

But let someone write a bad check or protest unfair taxation and you all jump on the bandwagon and howl together: “Lynch’em! (better him or her than us)! All distraction, all to get you feeble minds off the crooks in village, town, city hall and your crooked egomaniac governors, congressmen, and president. We say “Lynch them!” And leave the poor beasts to wander and to graze…even if it is a little inconvenient for you texter-at-the-wheel, or you party-liners-at-the-wheel, or you Carver heavy truckdrivers, or you wreckless drivers on Rt 144 passing on double lines, speeding, pulling out in front of oncoming traffic, and the list goes on. You can’t deny we’re right. But you will.

But where are the Albany County Sheriff’s deputies, the New York State Police, the Bethlehem Police, the Coeymans police when all of that is happening? Supervising the wanton slaughter of helpless animals by a bunch of gun-crazed vigilantes shooting into the landscape. Great picture isn’t it?

Question: How responsible is it for the police to allow a private citizen, Gem Farms of Schodack, to hire a bunch of armed halfwit merceneries to go out and shoot the animals? Who was supervising this Wild West riot with live ammo. While Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple’s attempt to control the blood-bath unleashed by a bunch of local yahoo hicks, the statement that “Authorities wanted to stress they did not want to kill the bison. They just had no choice given the situation“, does sort of raise one’s eyebrows. Aren’t they supposed to be trained to manage really difficult situations. And “given what situation?” The buffalo or the bunch of gun-slinging, blood-crazed hicks and yahoos, whom the Sheriff’s Department, the State Troopers and local police, Bethlehem and Coeymans, couldn’t control? Police, law enforcement “had no choice,” couldn’t control the situation? The damned fools were firing live ammunition from hunting rifles into God knows where!!!! Police shouting orders to stop and the guy doesn’t stop firing? What a bunch of jerks! (And when we read the News 13 article we were almost inclined to pull back on our criticism of the police responders.) So, our law enforcement professionals don’t know how to charge those dumbass yahoos? You piss in public and they have you in cuffs! Firing on a bunch of animals, wounding some, apparently in total disregard and indifferent to any public safety considerations! If the bison were a public safety concern what in hell do we call the shooters, Mr Apple?

YOU MADE A VERY BAD CHOICE, VERY BAD DECISION…

YOU MADE A VERY BAD CHOICE, A VERY BAD DECISION THAT REALLY HURTS YOUR PUBLIC IMAGE; MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE A BUNCH OF DORKS. SHAME ON YOU ALBANY COUNTY SHERIFF AND SHERIFF’S DEPUTIES, BETHLEHEM AND COEYMANS POLICE. SHAME ON YOU NEW YORK STATE POLICE!!! THERE WAS A BETTER WAY TO HANDLE THE SITUATION BUT YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE GOTTEN YOUR ROCKS OFF THEN. SHAME ON YOU AND SHAME ON ALBANY COUNTY!!!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

WE CERTAINLY HOPE THAT THE ANIMAL RIGHTS AND CONSERVATIONIST GROUPS PICK UP ON THIS AND GIVE YOU COWBOYS THE REAL WHOPPIN’ YOU DESERVE FOR THIS GAFFE! AND THE DUMBASS

So now, after you’ve shown what great law enforcement professionals can do when facing a situation that has a number of resolutions — one of the least desirable is shooting off a firearm — you’re going to call in equipment to remove the carcasses, Right? And then what? Are you going to butcher the carcasses for the meat and use it responsibly? No, we didn’t think so. PriceChopper and Shop’n Save would have a fit. They wouldn’t be able to sell their hormone-ridden factory-farm-raised poison meats. Well, just waste it and compost it in a big pit; then we can feed the hungry millions with Monsanto genetically modified foods and tax-dollars. Go figure.

Not a proud moment for any of us.

And if you read most of the comments left by readers on the News Center 13 article site for this, we’re pleased to say that most of the public agree with us. You can tranquilize and elephant, why not a bison? Thank you!

But speaking of interfering with traffic, on April 25, 2015, the day after the bison massacre, News Center 6 announces on its website,”Busy Albany interstate highway junction to close for 8 hours” (April 25, 2015 07:06 EDT ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A busy highway interchange along the Hudson River in Albany will be shut down for several hours over the weekend for construction work.” So, what now, do we send a bunch of hooligans with guns to solve the slowdown?

Ravena: The Scandal Continues

Henry Traver’s $11,000 Pay Raise is Scandalous. Here’s Why:

It’s springtime and you’ll be promenading along the dusty streets of Ravena, chatting to the music of passing heavy trucks,  deeply savoring the stench of diesel fuel, while Carver Laraway is hobnobbing with the New York State governor’s aides, trying to cut deals to repair at taxpayer expense the roads, especially Rt 144, damaged by Carver Companies’ trucks, and while Michael Biscone, Jerry Perrine and Larry Conrad are filling in wetlands with toxic fill and burying natural waterways. (Biscone and Conrad invented the boardgame, “Bury the Creek“.)  Where’s the DEC when Biscone, Perrine and Conrad are doing their mischief? Your elected RCS board of education members are spending your tax dollars hand over fist while putting their own homes up for sale to move out of the area. Yes, all you have to do is ask your RCS board of education president, James Latter, and board member Alice Whalen Why? Why did they run for elected board of education office if they were simply going to jump ship after doing their damage. YES! Ravena-Coeymans, you asked for it and you got it.

More smoke and mirrors regarding the failed Ravena Health and Fitness Center…When will we ever get the truth?

Now, it may be true that you weren’t even asked by the Bruno-Warner-Deluca trio whether you needed or even wanted to spend more than $100,000 a year on a substandard fitness center run by an mutiple-failure, Cathy Deluca. But John Bruno, Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca made the decision for you and you had to live with it for more than two years. Now mayor William “Mouse” Misuraca and his sockpuppet Bill Bailey are telling us that two individuals want to invest private funds in the dump. Well, if there are that many whackos with too much money that they don’t know what to do with it, we can think of dozens of better investments. Asked by a local resident who the so-called interested parties were, the board couldn’t — or wouldn’t say. Why is that? What’s the big secret? What are you giving away now? Shouldn’t we know the name of the “investors“, the heroes who are going to save your political arses? Who may be going to save Ravena taxpayers from abject bankruptcy? Isn’t it our business who is interested and potentially going to take over a dead business in Ravena, a dead business that is still being financed by public tax dollars? We think so, and we want to know who these so-called investors are. Don’t you, residents, neighbors?

Question: If supporters of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center want to claim that the Fatness Center brings business to Ravena, can they explain Why? during the two years the Fatness Center has been operating, at least 4 businesses have closed their doors in Ravena? This includes Mr Aaron Flach closing his drycleaning operation and terminating the staff of the drycleaning business and the laundromat attendants. If that’s how the Fitness Center is attracting business, we’d better expidite closing Cathy Deluca’s playmen before the few remaining businesses pull up stakes!

When asked by a resident at the April 21, 2014, village board meeting: If the unidentified investors don’t take over the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, what will the village do with the equipment that the village of Ravena purchased from Bob Fisk for $40,000? Ravena village board member William “Bill” Bailey simply replies: “We’ll probably auction it.” And likely get ten cents on the dollar for it! Your tax dollars at work, Ravena!

Ravena village trustee Nancy Warner ousted from key positions…No longer supervising her husband’s court operations,  dirty village judge Harold “Hal” Warner. Too bad, Hal, this must mean you might be the one getting a stiff sentence.

But things are looking up when you consider that Nancy Warner is being sidelined and has been demoted. Good news is that she’s no longer supervising her crooked husband’s village court operations. Dirty-Judge Harold “Hal” Warner, Nancy Warner’s husband, will have to deal with another board member supervising his village kangaroo court operations. We’ll be watching to see if there are any improvements or, as we expect, it will be business as usual.

But let’s turn our attention now to the village of Ravena Department of Public Works, the village department that works very hard to avoid working. We recently reported that the village of Ravena Department of Public Works foreman, Henry Traver, has been awarded a more than $11,000 pay raise; he’s now going to make more than $60, 000 a year plus benes! How does the Ravena village board explain that one? Do you have mayor Mouse Misuraca’s telephone number? Give him a call or give one of those talking heads on the village board a call and ask why in hell are they rewarding a dunce?!?

Ravena board to dump more stone on village streets to be washed away …

Well, we also reported how, last year the village of Ravena Department of Public Works under foreman Henry Traver, dumped tons of stone on local Ravena streets, and we warned that it would be washed away or plowed away by spring. Guess what? Central Avenue in Ravena was one of those streets that they covered with the loose stone. Walk along Central Avenue today and you’ll see how our prediction came true. The stone is gone and you can see the old street surface. Your tax dollars at work. But now they’re planning to do the same thing on about a dozen other streets in Ravena. Why are you still reading this? Call Ravena mayor “Mouse” Misuraca and raise some hell!

Ravena storm drains filled to the grill with debris and dirt!

We’ve already reported on the dire condition of the fire hydrants in Ravena-Coeymans and we’re pleased to see that someone’s built a fire under some butts to get them serviced. That’s the good news. But while you’re taking your daily constitutional on the broken streets of Ravena, amuse yourself by the state of the storm drains. We recently surveyed the storm drains on Main Street and a couple of side streets and found that a number of them were filled with debris and dirt to within inches of the grill (see the picture below) !!!

Ravena Storm Drain Filled to the Top with Debris and Dirt!Henry Traver's Supposed to be Maintaining Them

Ravena Storm Drain Filled to the Top with Debris and Dirt!
Henry Traver’s Supposed to be Maintaining Them

We need to ask Ravena mayor “Mouse” Misuraca and his board of sockpuppets Why? are these storm drains in such a deplorable state? These drains must be maintained to keep water from eroding the streets and flooding our homes!!! So, instead of maintaining the storm drains, Henry Traver rides around in circles in the village vehicles, and the Ravena village board gives him an $11, 000 pay raise. Doesn’t Ravena see anything wrong with this picture?

Ravena-Coeymans isn’t alone when it comes to incompetent management of municipal, village and town infrastructure. New Baltimore is on a par or at least running a close second position in terms of incompetence and waste by the Highway Department under the mismanagement of Mr Denis Jordan, who has screwed up the drainage and streets in the Hamlet of New Baltimore to an embarrassing level. If it were Ravena or Coeymans Hamlet we’d be writing that it was a plot by Michael Biscone and Larry Conrad to get the homes condemned so that they could buy them up for a penny. But New Baltimore isn’t that sophisticated; New Baltimore is just incompetent. So if you were to take two dildos, throw them into a bag and shake them up, do you know what you’d get if you emptied the bag? Yup! Two dildos. That’s what we got in Ravena and New Baltimore wrecking our infrastructure and wasting our tax dollars; and they’re dressed up like Henry Traver and Denis Jordan.

New Baltimore Taxpayers Sucked In Again by Teachers-Union-Owned-and-Operated RCS Board of Education

The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District and its Board of Education manipulated the timing and the vote to again shortchange RCS taxpayers and deprive them of their votes when, on Tuesday, January 13, 2015, they pushed the vote on two proposals totaling and additional $30 million in tax burden on an already faltering tax base. So, Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Social Services Recipients and Friends of New York State United Teachers, the Teachers-Union-Owned-and-Operated Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District approved an additional $30 Million dollars in indirect tax assessment they’re calling “Capital Improvement” for the RCS Schools. Let’s watch and see who gets the contracts for the so-called “capital improvements.”

New Baltimore Taxpayers Sucked In Again

taxation without representation

May be business as usual in Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk but New Baltimore doesn’t have to put up with it! Or do we?

We have just one question: When will the Town of New Baltimore smarten up and leave the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District, a failing group of schools with a corrupt board of education under a corrupt superintendent and move on to join the Greene County success story? When will the Town of New Baltimore town board finally get its act together and take the necessary steps to ensure that New Baltimore taxpayers are not playing the fool for a failing district that knows no bounds when it comes to spending and taxation. The RCS district is losing tax base a mile-a-minute and attracting non-taxpaying population. More properties are either going up for sale, being abandoned, or vacant in the case of commercial properties with more of the tax burden falling on Guess Who?!?!

Ravena has enough money to allow Cathy Deluca’s unlawful and failing Ravena Health and Fitness Center to continue losing taxpayer dollars to the tune of more than $6000 a month, and the town of Coeymans can give half the town away in concessions to carpetbagger business with nothing in return. But can New Baltimore continue to pay for Raven-Coeyman’s debauchery and free-wheeling spending addictions? We say NO!

The RCS Chalkboard: The Board of Education’s Documentation of Stupidity

When we posted our article It only gets worse: 2015 will be more expensive, more dangerous, and more frustrating … (December 22, 2014), we had no idea how prophetic it was going to be. But then we received the January 2015 RCS Chalkboard and it became crystal clear how bad it can really get. It’s getting really, really bad!

This is YOU! You've been programmed and are being re-programmed!

This is YOU!
You’ve been programmed, and are being re-programmed! 

First of all, we’ve warned in the past of the misplaced loyalties and the disconnection of the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk board of education from the real people, the real taxpayers, the real needs, the real issues in this community. Back when a small fraction of local voters put the current board of education in office, we correctly noted that the new board was made up of a bunch of insiders, special-interest elitists, most of whom are married to or are close relatives of Guess what? Yes! Teachers.

RCS BOARD OF EDUCATION WANTS ANOTHER $30 MILLION!!!

RCS has it to burn!and the RCS board of education burns it "responsibly" (as long as you're paying).
RCS has it to burn!
and the RCS board of education burns it “responsibly” (as long as you’re paying).

Monkey-mayor “Moose” Misuraca doesn’t seem to have the Moose-Nalls to make any changes in favor of Ravena residents and taxpayers…

Moose balls? More like mouse balls!

Moose balls? More like mouse balls!

But back then we had mummy mayor John T. Bruno in office with Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca unlawfully or at best misdirecting taxpayer money right and left — now we have monkey-mayor Bill “Moose” Misuraca and Nancy Warner supported by four dildos — Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca still have their hands in your pocket but monkey-mayor “Moose” Misuraca doesn’t seem to have the moose-balls to make any changes in favor of Ravena residents and taxpayers, he hasn’t made any changes but has simply moved in with Warner and Deluca — and Yes! When the current RCS board of education was voted in, there was some serious voting and poll irregularities as usual — but no one seemed to care much, as usual you all had your heads in the sand and your thumbs up your butts —, and back then we still were dealing with the likes of Gerald “Dirty-Hands” Jerry Deluca and Gregory “Deluca’s Dumplin'” Darlington at the Coeymans police department with their bunch of mobsters. But then Deluca and Darlington cashed in their chips and made off with their pockets full of your tax money while the town of Coeymans board sat stupidly telling you they were all of a sudden short of money. Why was that, we wonder? (For the answers just read past articles in this blog!) But that was then….AND NOTHING’S CHANGED!!!!!

It’s Got to be a Joke!

braindead

If you don’t have a copy of the January 2015 RCS Chalkboard you really need to get a copy and see for yourself.

First of all, you will read that the RCS Chalkboard announces that the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District is “Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders Today.” That’s a very frightening thought when you actually read the rag. Here’s why:

The so-called RCS mission statement (in the left margin of the title page) reads: “The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District strives to be an exemplary learning community whose graduates are well-prepared to excel in a complex, interconnected and changing world.” Nice bit of fiction there and maybe Stephen King can use it in one of his crazy horror novels but those of us living here and watching, listening to, and talking to the products of that school district know better. The real mission statement should read: “Raping and pillaging the taxpayers of the RCS community and feeding them lies and deception while irresponsibly spending, spending, spending, and dumbing down the curriculum to artificially increase graduation rates. Your tax dollars working for the New York State United Teachers union and our egos!”

Here you have an eight-member board under the chairmanship of James Latter who is known to be employed by a Saudi Arabian enemy of the environment, to have unethical connections with various questionable organizations, and who is known to have violated the law and student and family confidentiality. But district voters re-elected him! We then have the sockpuppet Patrick Brown, a hippy attorney, wife…excuse us, husband of Matt Miller…Oops! We meant husband of Mary Partridge-Brown, the personal lap dancer to RCS teachers union representative, Matthew J. “Matt-the-Mutt” Miller, who is known to have been involved with some very shady activities in the past, including double-dipping and making off with school district money to the tune of more than $10,000 a year for several years, in addition to a reduced teaching load to allow him to do union business on RCS time, while receiving a full teacher salary plus complete benefits and incentives. Why is he still there? Your school board at work — in their own interests. We then have Alice Whalen, a former teacher, who has already announced during her term on the RCS board of education that she (Whalen) will be moving out of the RCS area to Guilderland…while she’s still spending RCS school district money and taking her personal stash with her to Guilderland!!! Nice going RCS!

Howard “Bray” Engel, a teacher married to a teacher, and who teaches outside of the district. Need we say more about Engel?

William “Bill”  McFerret…Sorry, that’s defaming the furry little animal that’s a member of the weasel family…McFerran is no less a weasel, though. He’s got an interesting history, too, if anyone has followed the developments over the past 2-3 years in the local RCS athletic organizations’ history. Not very savory.

The remaining three useless widgets, Tina Furst-Hotaling, Michael Jones, and Jason Hyslop have their issues but we’ve made our point.

As for Mr Alan R. McCartney, who came to the district with much experience and even more baggage, he’s gotten comfortable and cozy, knowing how to change his colors as the board composition changes. After all, he doesn’t want to jeopardize his enormous take-home by rocking the boat. There’s money to be had and he’s collecting all he can while making nice-nice with his keepers.

We want to mention also that the RCS Chalkboard has two editors, Robert Hanlon and Sabre Sarnataro. Why is that important, you might ask?

shooting-yourself-in-the-footWell, we just barely emerged from a national economic depression. The job market and the econony have not yet even approached recovery. The infrastructures of the communities (Ravena, Coeymans, Selkirk, parts of New Baltimore) are falling apart and in shambles. Since the last census the town of Coeymans has lost about one-third of its population. Businesses, and jobs, are practically non-exist ant in the district.

One of the first things this present RCS board of education did was to take its business — rather the RCS school district’s business — behind closed doors, effectively eliminating the public — that is, the taxpaying community, YOU — from their back-room operations. The number of empty properties, distressed properties, properties slated for demolition, and the number of “For Sale” signs popping up all over the district is very, very bad news for an already stressed out region. We’re told we have to tighten our belts (Nancy Warner, member of the Ravena village council to the town of Coeymans board) while the mayor of Ravena and his brainless sockpuppets allow  the Ravena Health and Fitness Center to hemorrhage more than $6,000 a month of taxpayer dollars while paying its incompetent “director”, Cathy Deluca, more than $30,000 a year plus full benefits to “direct” the village into bankruptcy under current mayor William “Moose” Misuraca, and the town of Coeymans is in an uproar over budget shortfalls and where to find the money to cover them. But the RCS board of education is out there upgrading the RCS high-school football field — but if you’re a graduate of RCS schools over the past 20 years, you probably have nothing but oatmeal for brains, and you’ll swallow every word of the bullshit that appears in the RCS Chalkboard justifying that expenditure while calling it “responsible” spending. Naturally, that bit of propaganda bullshit is on the back page of the RCS Chalkboard.

The front page of the RCS chalkboard is worthy of Stephen King (who may well have written it, except for the mistakes). The front page is dedicated to a plan to “Help RCS Plan for Tomorrow.” How does the present irresponsible RCS BoE want you to do that? Simple: They want you to vote in support of an additional $50 MILLION WORTH OF SUGGESTED NEEDS! Well, the good news is that on the last page of the confusing and double-talking explanation that takes up no less than 8 full pages, they are asking for only about $30,000,000 (that’s thirty million dollars) in addition to the usual budget of more than $40,000,000 (that’s forty million dollars). To give you an idea of how much $40,000,000 is to run the schools under the present administration, that $40 million is more money than the combined budgets of the towns of Coeymans and New Baltimore, the village of Ravena, and the district of Selkirk combined. Go figure! And now they want RCS taxpayers to cough up another $30,000,000 for a capital project while they continue spending to “upgrade” sports facilities, while they consider cutting arts and language programs because there’s no money.

But the real clincher comes when all is said and done, and you will recall that we have an 8-member board, an interim superintendent and two — Yes! Two! — editors putting together, checking the content, and finally approving the expenditure of the RCS Chalkboard, which is allegedly intended to provide RCS Central School District residents and taxpayers with true, accurate, and timely information on what’s going on in the district, but on page one, the title page, of the RCS Chalkboard, in a textbox highlighted for emphasis, we read:

Please be sure to vote on Tuesday, January 13, 2015, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., RCS High School
√ Proposition #1: $28.79 million Projected Tax Impact by 2020: + $12.42 per year or 1.04 per month[+ 0.62%] on a $100,00 RCS home

√ Proposition #1: $1.3 million Projected Tax Impact by 2020: + $2.98 per year or 25¢ per month[+ 0.15%] on a $100,00 RCS home

grim reaperNow we have a problem with the $100,00 RCS home part (are we supposed to read this to be a ONE HUNDRED DOLLAR RCS HOME?) . Either property values have really plummeted over the holiday season and we’re worse off than we expected or the RCS Central School District’s figures are way off target or the 8-member board, the superintendent and the 2 editors didn’t care enough to read what they published and correct any errors. So what does that say about the rest of the bullshit in the January 2015 RCS Chalkboard? Is it accurate? Is it truthful? Is it reliable? Is it worth the paper it’s printed on? By the way, how much does the district spend on printing the RCS Chalkboard? Do taxpayers have to pay for it even if it’s inaccurate, untruthful, unreliable, full of misleading errors? Why don’t you go to a meeting and ask Mr Latter, Mr McCartney or one of the two editors. Better yet, why not ask RCS teachers why their board’s figures and grammar reflect the quality of education your children are receiving and that’s being paid for by taxpayers — or what’s left of us — many of whom have no children!?!

VOTE NO! ON PROPOSITION NO. 1: DISTRICT-WIDE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROJECT ($28,790,00.00)

VOTE NO! ON PROPOSITION 2 (CONTINGENT): MIDDLE-HIGH SCHOOL SITE WORK IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT ($1,300,000)


ca. 1939, Germany --- Defiant Adolf Hitler --- Image by © Bettmann/CORBISCuomo’s Tax Break for Vets — Added Burden (Guilt or Taxes) for Us!

Have any of our readers followed the story on the tax exemptions for veterans proposed by Andrew Cuomo? He’s playing a Pontius Pilate game of “I’m giving you a choice but someone’s gotta die — and I’m not getting involved.” game with us. Here’s the bottom line: Either you piss down veterans’ legs and say pay taxes like the rest of us — in other words, we’re going to treat you like the federal government does — and risk being called ungrateful OR we can give veterans a tax break and take on a greater burden ourselves (even those of you who are veterans but don’t qualify for the exemption). Now that’s a genuine, authentic Cuomo-the-homo type choice; in fact, it’s the type of choice we’re constantly being asked to make by our local RCS CSD school board and local governments. Any thoughts on this sleezy proposition? (It’s the Cuomo equivalent slogan, “It’s for the vets!”, comparable to the RCS board of educations tired propaganda slogan, “It’s for the kids!”).

aghastWounded Warriors Project — Give us your money! It’s for the Vets! (RCS BoE: “Give us your money! It’s for the kids!”)

The latest embarrassing scandal that affects the duping of the American public and their sense of national guilt has recently surfaced when the crooks at Wounded Warriors got exposed. Here’s the bottom line in brief: According to Guidestar, a group that investigates charities, the Wounded Warrior Project might as well be run by the Mafia. In 2012, the WWP received an astronomical $154,958,901, with a measly $4,857,084 going out in grants to veterans’ organizations and $671,194 to individuals. That means that the group only used 3.5% of the money it received for the purpose intended.

In the meantime, the Officers, Directors and Trustees hauled in $15,415,666 million, with Employee Benefits ($2,226,457), Office Expenses ($12,451,303), Travel ($4,086,509), Promotional Items ($4,055,567) and something called Outside Services ($20,915,404) accounting for roughly 50% of what’s listed as “Overhead Expenses.”

It only gets worse: 2015 will be more expensive, more dangerous, and more frustrating in Coeymans and New Baltimore.

Unidentifiable Killer Trucks on Rt 144 and 9W. Why aren’t the traffic laws being enforced? Why are we put in harm’s way by our elected officials?

killer truck 1

Killer Trucks On the Loose!!!!
Test: Can you find, read the license plate to save your life?

School buses stopping at ever damned driveway during rush hour traffic!

Utility trucks stopped on the shoulder with no flagmen!

Dump trucks and heavy trucks, oversized loads going at a snail’s pace!

Illegible licence plates and no lights!

Now it seems the drivers of the nuisance heavy trucks are playing life and death games with other road users!

We’ve been hearing the usual mantra of “We need this business because it will create jobs!” And we’ve also witnessed the stupidity and lack of common sense, the lack of vision that is behind these idiotic mantras. Big business will feed any small town idiot official any bullshit it likes to get its way and we’ve seen that with the town of Coeymans and its kissing Carver Laraway’s and TCI‘s butts nontop. Everything from caving to the lies of new jobs and benefits to the community to enacting illegal zoning and local laws. We have it all.

And speaking of jobs, Ravena and Coeymans: Word on the street is that Aaron Flach is planning to close the front office/dry cleaning part of the local laundromat. Seems an employee has complained that it’s too cold and Flach can’t actually fire the employee for claiming that working conditions in Flach’s salt mines is substandard so Flach, instead of investing in heat, decides to close that part of the business. This poses a number of problems: (1) if Flach closes the front office, no one will be there to take care of problems and problems there are in the laundromat when they occur, (2) if Flach closes the front office/dry cleaning area where do residents bring their dry cleaning? Answer: Elsewhere, out of Ravena; after all, Ravena is no place for a business, is it?. And most importantly, (3) Jobs. How many people will be put out of a job in Ravena when Flach makes the move to save money rather than be a decent employer? Yes! There you have the Ravena “have’s”, the in-crowd mentality versus the rest of us. What? You want heat? Flach would rather close the business than spend the money on heat!

And where ya gonna go when you have a problem with Flach’s carwash — which happens more often than not — when there’s no one in the dry cleaning/laundromat office? Ravena-style customer service — a very pleasant “Screw you!”

Carver Companies and the others like it in Coeymans are playing this community for the fools we are if you look at our local elected officials. We’re getting empty promises, environmental pollution never seen before in this area, we’re hemorrhaging tax base and residents, but we’re giving our land, our homes, our heritage away like a bunch of retarded prostitutes. Why? Ask yourselves why? Ask Mr Flach and his Coeymans town board, Why? Ask Mr Misuraca and his village council, Why?

It seems everyone in town and village hall are out to stack the deck in their favor. Take Ravena. A new mayor, Bill Misuraca, moves into the Ravena mayor’s office and does nothing. His highway department (the Ravena Public Works Department) spreads tens of thousands of dollars in loose stone on several major streets only to have it pushed aside by traffic, washed away by rain, and now plowed up by the snow plows. Misuraca’s wisdom: Why put something permanent down if we’re only going to dig it up again when we repair the infrastructure. Meanwhile, Ravena is hemorraging to the tune of $6,000 a month with the Cathy Deluca fitness center, and it’s losing tax base faster than we can write about it. Record numbers of homes for sale in Ravena and Main Street is still the capital of distressed and empty property. A quarter century of financial incompetence and finally, after screwing the bottoms off of most property owners in Ravena, Ravena is forced to keep separate accounts for sewer and water! DUHHHHH!

The situation in the town of New Baltimore isn’t much different. A bunch of dildos in the highway department have no clue how to keep records or how to repair roads or drive snow plows. For example, in the summer they “patch” the potholes so loosely that after 3 or 5 cars and the hole’s back. The surfacing that does survive is torn up by the plows in winter, and then replaced in the summer. That’s called job security, we guess. Earlier this month (December 2014) after the 4 or so inches of snow fell, the New Baltimore Highway Department plows moved through the Hamlet and the National Historic District and tore up big slabs of road surface — Were the plow blades too low or was the surface that shoddy? — We believe both were true. Or they tear up the shoulder so it has to be replaced in Spring or Summer. Job security. But can they install storm drains or gutters properly to avoid damage to private property? Hell NO! Or can they keep records of where the trucks and crews are at any given time? Or what work was done when? Or the cost of a particular job? Hell NO! Yet New Baltimore residents sit on their hands and play nice-nice. Wake the hell up!

Coeymans is no better. Budget shortfalls while everyone like Dirty-hands Jerry” Deluca and his partner Gregory Darlington cash in their severance pays and desert (rumor is they had a choice, leave or get prosecuted). But they leave, the Coeymans board, hypcrites that they are, praise them for their fine service (to themselves), hand them retirement badges and hefty cash-out checks, and we’re stuck with the ghosttown! Nice going, Flach and company. Nice to know you’re on our side!

Same for New Baltimore. Amid promises of reform and renewal, a return to good government, New Baltimore has fallen flat on its face and the newly elected mob’s egos have taken over. The Ravena News Herald reports that one of their biggest accomplishments is an employee handbook that took the 8 months to create — 8 months on taxpayer dollars and time when they could have obtained the same result by simply calling another municipality, getting permission to use theirs, while making a couple of changes here and there. 8 days versus 8 months. Makes sense to us but not to the New Baltimore town board.

The town of New Baltimore can spend 8 months “creating” an employee handbook but can’t provide any records for road maintenance over the past  5-10 years. They have an employee handbook but that’s about the extent of the recordkeeping. Go ahead ask them for something. It’s as bad as Ravena: either they use some stupid excuse why they can’t give it to you or they tell you no records exist, that they’ve been shredded. We think their brains have been shredded.

There’s nothing in New Baltimore so New Baltimore doesn’t have to worry about stuff like Ravena and Coeymans. There are no more kids in New Baltimore. There are no more businesses in New Baltimore. The original families are either moving or dying out. The number of empty properties is unusually high, in fact on New Street more than half the homes are empty, either vacant or up for sale. The indifference of the town of New Baltimore to improvements in the infrastructure is appalling. Local lunatics like Joan Ross (the Cut-and-Paste Queen)  and Bob Ross (the Cryptkeeper a.k.a. Bitter Bob) spread hate and venom wherever they leave their slime tracks, and stand poised to activate what they lovingly call their “Newbaltimorons” should anyone propose community improvements like public water etc. Vicious Joan keeps herself very busy sending toxic e-mails vilifying her neighbors or engaging in misdemeanor harassment (at a deposition Joan Ross had to take the 5th on her attorney’s advice to avoid a possible misdemeanor harassment prosecution when she was confronted with a tape recording of a threatening and obscene voicemail she left on a neighbor’s machine), while old Bitter Bob courts a jail sentence or at least a misdemeanor aggravated harassment charge — as has happened in the past, he was in Catskill court on a charge of aggravated harassment — by using his motor vehicle to harass pedestrians. But that’s what New Baltimore has become, a haven for dried up harridans and crypt-keepers. Incompetence in town departments and mega-egos in town hall. A far cry from the booming progress being made just a couple of miles down the road in Coxsackie.

killer_trucksBut back to our topic on “Killer Trucks,” As many of our local commuters know already, you aren’t likely to be getting anywhere on time these days. And you’re not very likely to be doing your usual 50-55 miles per hour along Rt 144 or 9W either. It used to be you could finagle your schedule around the school buses that stop at every damned driveway along 144 or 9W and if you could manage to avoid those times, you’d be able to make it to where you were going. Now, forget about it! If the school buses don’t getcha, Lafarges or Carver Company’s trucks will.  You just won’t win, people!

Then you have the cable and utility trucks and crews that park in the traffic lane and put up traffic cones but don’t bother with any flagmen. There’s something to the expression, “line of sight” we see in straight lines, not around corners or over crests. But that doesn’t matter. You’re responsible, remember that. So you cross the double line to get around the cones and the trucks while the cable or utility employees are huddled together in bullshit session and you meet head on with one of Lafarge’s or Carver’s trucks. No problem, your accident gets a spot in the Ravena News Herald and in the Times Union obituaries and Babcock  Funeral Home, one of the only businesses left in Ravena only because those who can’t afford to move out stay and die, gets some business. Besides, hiring flagmen creates jobs and jobs cost companies money; bad idea.

We recently received a letter from a local resident who makes our point for us. We initially weren’t going to publish it because it seemed someone was just bitching but then IT HAPPENED TO US! That made all the difference in the world so here’s the letter [in part redacted to make it at least PG material]:

I’ve been reading your blog and thought you might be interested in this.
I was driving on 144 out of Albany to Ravena and by the old Elks lodge ended up behind a large truck, like a tractor trailer but open like a dump truck. The speed limit in the area is 55 mph but the truck was doing like 35-40 — like 35 then 40 then 45 then back to 30 — I usually do about 50 on that stretch and because it was kinda wintery and overcast I was doing about 50 before catching up with the truck. I couldn’t pass right away because it was in a double line strech but at about Mocker Bros. farm I decided to pass. I had my lights on and signaled to pass got about halfway past the truck and he speeds up! So I try to pass him and he’s going even faster. Then I notice another large truck coming (but no headlights on) towards me and I just have enough time to flash my lights and pull over to the left shoulder. The oncoming truck didn’t have any running lights or headlights on and if the cab wasn’t white, I may not have seen it until it was too late. If I did not do that I would not have been able to drop back and avoid a head-on with the other truck. I was fit to be tied; I wanted blood…not mine. So I  was again behind this a…. m— f— [redacted] and was thinking I needed to follow him until he stopped. But then I thought about it and we were already in Coeymans and if I f—ed him up I’d probably be the one arrested and in jail for kicking the s— [redacted] out of the a— [redacted] who thought it was funny trying to get me to be one of your statistics. You would have loved it if I was one of your first fatalities but then I’d be dead. Ha-ha!
Anyway, I thought you would like to know about this. I got a couple of pix of the truck and saw it was Troy Sand and Gravel…can you guess where it turned in Coeymans?
Thanks,
A Survivor
P.s. I couldn’t read the license plate even if I wanted to complain. Isn’t there a law that says the plate has to be readable. These trucks are so dirty you can never read the plates. Well, if I have a dirty plate or a light out the cops would have me in a minute. Must be something going on that these guys don’t get stopped and ticketed like we do.
This all happened on Friday [Editor’s note: That would be December 5, 2014] between 2:45 and 3:15. Maybe that will help.

The writer of the above letter provided the picture of the truck that appears in the title. It’s much bigger than a common dump truck, and you can’t make out the license plate number at all. It’s too filthy. Here’s another picture of the same truck from a different angle, taken by “Survivor”.

cropped truckYup! Not a week after receiving that e-letter we had a similar experience. Not quite as hair-raising as “Survivor’s” but close enough. We’ve come to the conclusion that these Lafarge and Carver truck drivers are recruited from the local looney bin or drunk tank. Wouldn’t you think that “professional” trained truck drivers would have more sense? That they would be trained in road safety and road etiquette? They apparently have the brains of an RCS school bus driver, that is, about the same IQ as a chicken!

With everything else going to hell in a hand basket in Ravena, Coeymans, New Baltimore, and in the bigger picture, do we have to expect that in these communities, thanks to the town of Coeymans board, the village council of Ravena, and the New Baltimore town board sellouts to the Lafarges and Carver Laraways of the world that we in these communities are about to become irrelevant, even extinct? Our town and village officials sell us out at Walmart sale prices, carpetbagger businesses like TCI and Carver Companies come in and take over the town and region, our elected officials have the brains of a decapitated turkey when it comes to managing our affairs, and even parents have betrayed their own children by handing them over to surrogates like the RCS schools and bus drivers, and what do they get delivered to their driveways? Kids that have less character than frozen vegetable medley — quick, easy, tasteless.

dawn-of-the-braindeadAnd so, for example, we find the teenage girl working as a cashier in the Ravena Shop’n Save who had to ask What’s this? when presented with a bunch of beets. She actually didn’t know what beets looked like and had to ask. Here we had a 16 or 17 year old girl, almost an adult, presumably in the middle of high-school and almost out in the real world, who is working in a supermarket but doesn’t know what a bunch of beets is! The product of great parenting, superior schooling, unparalleled experience (just being sarcastic because none of that is even remotely true). But you can bet your life she knows how to get lost in her smartphone on Facebook or some other asocial media! That’s what we have to deal with people! Are you proud of that?

Why is it that Ravena, Coeymans and New Baltimore have the amazing capacity to get saddled with elected officials, whose only talent seems to be their insane egos, their amazing capacity to outdo the incompetence, the ignorance, the stupidity and hypocrisy of their predecessors (for example, in Ravena, Misuraca‘s moving in with the Bruno mob, the sewer and water comedy act, the wholesale migration out of the village, the record number of empty and distressed properties, etc.; in Coeymans the incompetence in managing finances, the Coeymans board’s idolatry and cowing to the false prophets of business and jobs, the creation of environmental hazards and pollution, illegal local legislation, general corruption; New Baltimore with it’s psycho egos, its backward vision, its misplaced priorities, its abysmal record-keeping and cronyism, plus many of the problems of Ravena and Coeymans!)

braindeadThe Christmas season used to be a time of joyful expectation and the hope of a New Year with promise of bounty and plenty. That’s all a thing of the past and we’re all largely to blame. So, during this holiday season, rather than be Pollyanna about the reality that we have to live with each and every day of our lives, we’d rather be prophetic about this whole situation and say that we need to pull our heads out of the sand or out of any other dark holes in which we may have stuck them and realize that…

ASS-PAIN

… we have to look forward to a slower, more expensive, and more dangerous, higher-anxiety 2015 than we could have ever imagined a year ago. Why? Because we have allowed it to happen. We have not held our elected officials accountable and we have allowed them to have their way with us. If your butts hurt really bad, just read the past issues of this blog and then ask yourself why you never woke up and never took control.

All having been said,

RCS Santa Claus

RCS Santa Claus
Ho, Ho, Ho! You been had, you ho’!

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year — if you can.

News Shorts: Coeymans p.d. Fires Crosier

progress-reportCoeymans Town Board Terminates Coeymans Police Officer Danielle Crosier

We have received a confirmed report that the Coeymans town board has terminated Coeymans police officer Danielle Crosier.

Crosier has been an item of ongoing scandal and controversy since former Coeymans police chief Gregory “Dumplington” Darlington added the blond bimbo to his trophy shelf about two years ago. Her major claim to fame was her notorious bad driving; she was such a bad driver that the RCS high school put her on as a road safety instructor. Go figure.

Crosier was so bad behind the wheel of a motor vehicle that she recently rammed a parked NYS vehicle in the South Pearl Street NYS motor vehicles parking lot while allegedly transporting a minor to Family Services. Yup! And the RCS central school district, your board of education, turned her loose to be a road safety instructor. Say! Anyone know what happened to that investigation?

Crosier was also installed at the RCS high school as RSO (Resource Safety Officer) where she wasted no time harassing the students, doing illegal searches, and doing one of the wrestling coaches too!

We’ve been pressing to get rid of that blond bimbo for some time now; Crosier was a useless piece of baggage.

The Coeymans town board also accepted the resignation of Coeymans police officer Scott Kline.

On the Street: Ravena to Eliminate the Ravena Fire Department. Fact or Fiction?

There’s another breaking story but is still unconfirmed that the village of Ravena is considering eliminating the Ravena Fire Department and entering into an agreement with the town of Coeymans for firefighting services. This would be a very smart move on Ravena’s part and would save Ravena a couple of hundred grand, more if they sell off the existing equipment. Such a move, if done right, would also help the town of Coeymans utilize its resources to capacity, while setting the stage for more advanced training and possibly some more grant money. Let’s see if this one pans out.

Ravena Village Board Admits It: Fitness Center Hemorrhaging $6000 a Month!

We’ve been writing about it for almost two years. Cathy Deluca’s playpen, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center is hemorraging taxpayer dollars to the tune of $6,000 a month, according to statements made by Ravena village board officials and published in the October 30, 2014, issue of the Ravena News Herald. We been telling you so for the past year! Now it’s official!

Well now it's official!

Well now it’s official!
The Ravena Village Board, Mayor Misuraca admit it; the Ravena News Herald publishes it!
Ravena Health and Fitness Center is on the Block!

Good for you, Mayor Misuraca! You really do have a pair!

Nice pair, Mayor Moose

Nice pair, Mayor Moose

According to the report published in the October 30, 2014, issue of the Ravena News Herald, in an article with the misleading title of “Fitness center members rally against rumored shutdown” by Bryan Rowzee, local kiss-ass sockpuppet wannabe reporter (any surprise), at their regular meeting on October 21, the village of Ravena mayor and village board met and discussed the closing of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. The discussion of the closing was not the focal item but was only one of the items of business to be discussed at that meeting.

And it was no “rally” as Rowzee misleadingly reports. It was more of a gaggle of village idiots with their own small-world interests at heart and no common sense at all. Some people need to get a life and stop embarrassing themselves and this community. It seems the loudest ones at village and town meetings are the local lunatics shouting their stupidity. It’s no wonder the intelligent ones just sit there and shake their heads!

Actually, it really wan’t a “rally” and the place wasn’t packed, Mr Rowzee. It was more like 4-10 supporters, wasn’t it. Plus a paltry petition. Is that reason enough to continue “hemorraging more than $6,000 a month” of taxpayer dollars?

Brainless-animatedOne such village idiot, Alicia Nieves, seems to think that the Ravena Health and Fitness Center benefits the community. Yeah, a community of ONE, named Alicia Nieves? Nieves wants to stay local and doesn’t want to drive “up towards Albany.” So is that a reason why the village has to continue bleeding losses of $6,000 a month? So that Alicia Nieves and her kind don’t have to drive “up towards Albany”? Not a very good argument in our opinion so let’s move on to another genius.

Dorothy Rock, sharing a partial brain with Alicia Nieves, mentions “the camaraderie she has built at the facility,” and “that for your dollar you are getting a lot of good stuff here.” So Ms Rock has made some friends at the Fitness Center. Can’t be many because there are so few members at the Ravena Fitness Center. There’s no interest in the dump. But Dorothy might be right, “you are getting a lot of good stuff here” like cooties? Dermatitis? Again, it’s not much of an argument to support losing $6,000 a month of taxpayer money!

And another freak brought along a petition with 109 names on it, about half of the total members of the fitness flop. So it seems that the Ravena Health and Fitness Center can’t even get all of its members, all 200 of them to sign a petition to keep its doors open. By the way, in order to break even, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center has to have about 500-600 PAYING members. We’d say in the two years it’s been sucking down taxpayer dollars it hasn’t even come close to that figure!

Ethyl H. shoots herself in the foot.

Ethyl H. shoots herself in the foot.

Dear Ethyl Hotaling says it all when she tells the Ravena Village officials that between 2013 to 2014, the membership has grown (?) from 80 members in 2013 to 203 currently. But dear Ethyl then shoots herself in the foot when she says that 63 of those members are retirees using the Silver Sneakers program to cover their membership fees. Silver Sneakers may cover Ethyl’s membership fees but it’s not doing much for the bottom line! The fitness center, under Cathy Deluca’s incompetent management—she has already “managed” two previous fitness centers to failure, even before former mayor John Bruno and Nancy Warner appointed her to manage the Ravena fitness club—is still losing public money to the tune of $6,000 a month, according to Ravena officials. That’s more than many local residents make in a month working full time!

Craig Youmans, who claims to have battled cancer and lung disease for years, uses the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. Youmans says “it’s a place to go.” Well, Mr Youmans, in your fragile physical condition, perhaps you should keep to the Senior Citizens Center or the RCS Community Library. It seems you need to get some professional exercise and fitness assistance geared to your fragile condition. You can’t use the argument that the Ravena Health and Fitness Center can justify its losses just to provide local seniors with a hangout at community expense. That’s why there’s a Senior Center and a community library. Besides, why isn’t Silver Sneakers hosted by the Seniors Center? That would make more sense, wouldn’t it? But then, Ravena-Coeymans specializes in duplicated services at taxpayer expense, and double- even triple-dipping—we won’t mention the Coeymans dispatchers club or the RCS central school district and Matthew “Matt” Miller!

Then the Voice of Reason Chimes in…

Village trustee Kieth Mahler, a local business person and a member of the Misuraca majority on the village board countered, “I don’t want to see anything close, but if you owned a business that was losing $6000 a month, how long would you keep it open?” Now that’s a good question Mr Mahler. Can you tell us how long you’d keep it open? Can you tell us how long you’ll keep the Ravena Health and Fitness Center open now that it’s out that it’s losing $6000 a month?

Now here’s where it gets confusing. Nancy Warner, arch-hypocrite that she is, was one of the ones who created the fitness center in the first place—she and Cathy Deluca and a couple of others met behind closed doors to agree to pay insider Robert Fisk more than $40,000 for used fitness equipment and it was Nancy Warner who was relentless in running the RCS Community Library out of its former location (The library, at least, paying rent! The fitness center isn’t!)—now that two-faced witch is agreeing with Kieth Mahler: “if you owned a business that was losing $6000 a month, how long would you keep it open?” Or is she? Who knows? Who cares? Nancy Warner is can’t be trusted even to back her so-called friend, Cathy Deluca! When the water starts getting hot the worms start squirming, right Nancy?

ass is grass cup

Nancy Warner’s slitting her own pet project’s throat along with her bosom girlfriend’s, Cathy Deluca’s

It’s odd that Warner should mention a private gym that charged only $35.00 a month and went out of business. Why would residents pay more than $200.00 a month for a gym? And that gym, the Ravena fitness center, is hemorrhaging at the rate of $6000 a month. Sounds like a bunch of double-talk as usual from Nancy Warner. As usual, she’s not making any sense at all. And it sounds like she’s slitting her own pet project’s throat along with her bosom girlfriend’s, Cathy Deluca’s. It was only a matter of time. As the saying goes, “There’s no honor among thieves.” How true!

Annette Demitraszek, Ravena village clerk, seems to be jumping on the kill the fitness center bandwagon, too. She’s a Nancy-Warner-brand-sockpuppet and seems to be supporting the closure when she publicly states “the village population is about 3,200″. Do the math! The fitness center has tried to recruit members from around the region and from neighboring communities. Take a tour of the Glenmont Planet Fitness between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. and you’ll see where the majority of locals are going to get themselves in shape! It’s not the Ravena fitness center, you’ll see that! Ravena and the surrounding area can’t compete and aren’t competing! The Ravena fitness center was a very, very bad move and it’s now out there, straight from Ravena officials’ mouths.

turkey talkBravo for Ravena Mayor Bill “Moose” Misuraca who put it very clearly: “Is it morally or financially responsible for 100% of the taxpayers to support less than 3% of the population who use this [the Ravena Health and Fitness Center]?  Mayor Misuraca goes on to confirm, “Right now this gym is hemorrhaging over $6,000 a month. We can not make payroll.” And Misuraca goes even further by confirming what we’ve been saying for almost 2 years: “It’s a burden to taxpayers and…villages and towns should not be in the business of being in business.” We agree 200%, Mr Mayor!

Nancy Warner’s apparently thrown in the towel, and at the same time has thrown her bosom girlfriend, Cathy Deluca…

Annette Demitraszek and Kris Biernacki may be on the hot seat soon for their conspiracies with Nancy Warner.

But we didn’t know! Yes you did!

Well, there may be justice in the air in Ravena. Maybe the time has come where the crooks are going to have to eat their own feces and get their walking papers. The rats eventually jump ship. Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, Cathy Deluca‘s partner, when he read the writing on the wall (the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs picked up that piece of garbage). Deluca’s buddy, former Coeymans police chief, Gregory “Dumplington” Darlington, abandoned his post and deserted his department and the community (destination: Albany DA David Soares’ office?). Nancy Warner’s apparently thrown in the towel, and at the same time has thrown her bosom girlfriend, Cathy Deluca in as well. Annette Demitraszek, kissing Warners broad butt as usual, adds her two cents. (But where are Demitraszek and Biernacki going to hide when they are charged with obstruction of justice and accessory after the fact, when they’re named in civil and criminal lawsuits in preparation as we write? Nancy Warner gonna take the bullet for ya, Demitraszek? How about for you, Biernacki? Bob Freeman’s going to deny he told you anything?)  And the Ravena village board has finally woken up. To paraphrase Cathy Deluca‘s statement made to a visitor at the Ravena Health and Fitness Center open house, before it even opened, “Time to go! You’re not welcome here!” Well Cathy, looks like what goes around comes around. Time to go, Cathy, and don’t let the slamming door jiggle your cellulite on your waddle out!

(And maybe the new Coeymans police chief, Peter J. McKenna, will be waiting outside with a warrant for your arrest for your lies to law enforcement and obstruction of justice! No more insiders at Coeymanazi p.d. to cover your ass, Cathy. Your bulbous butt is grass—Biatch!)
