A Weasel on the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Board of Education: William McFerran?!?!

 As if there weren’t already too many weasels in the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District administrative offices, employed by the RCS schools as teachers and non-instruction staff; as if the RCS board of education were not already overrun by ratlike weasels, now one of the arch-weasels, William “Bill” McFerran has his eye on a seat on the RCS board of education. Does it get any sleazier? Well, the answer to that question, dear readers is: Yes! It does get sleazier because the RCS school central district and its board of education are the sleaze champs of central New York State.

RCS: Home of the Weasel Board of Education!

Owned and Operated by the New York State United Teachers — A special-interest union!

McFerret a.k.a. McWeasel Bill McFerran Running for RCS BoE? No way, José!

McFerret a.k.a. McWeasel: Bill McFerran Running for RCS BoE? No way, José!

Not only did the Fiends of RCS wait until the 11th hour to announce the names of the sleaze candidates they are attempting to push on the public,  The fact that the three candidates supported by the teachers union, New York State United Teachers, Tina Furst-Hotaling, Michael Jones, and William “Bill” McFerret. Once again the Fiends of RCS, a loud-mouthed group of insiders, has put their candidates—Correction: the teachers union’s candidates—all on one ticket and plastering the entire district with the arrogant three stooges:Tina Furst-Hotaling, Michael Jones, and McFerret himself!


The ferret (Mustela putorius furo) is the domesticated form of the European Polecat, a mammal belonging to the weasel genus of the family Mustelidae.Ferrets are sexually dimorphic predators…[B]eing so closely related to polecats, ferrets are quite easily able to hybridize with them, and this has occasionally resulted in feral colonies of polecat-ferret hybrids that have caused damage to native fauna. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferret)


It’s a scandal that the candidates were publically announced not even a week before the scheduled school board and school budget elections. Meet the candidates was published only on May 25, 2014, in the Ravena News Herald for the elections to take place on May 20th!!!! Is that a joke or what?

Ms...Furst-Hotaling

Ms…Furst-Hotaling

We reported on McFerret’s shady and sleazy operations while he was associated with the RCS Sports Association. You remember, the sports association with the phony registrations and non-profit status? The same RCS Sports Association that when the water was getting a little too hot to handle, all of a sudden disappeared in a puff of ‘we’re outa here’ and then miraculously reappeared as the “new” RCS Sports Association will real status and a whole new board of crooks. Well, if you remember all that you’ll also remember that McFerran, yes, the very William McFerran who’s running for the board of education was behind all that and mixed up in the skullduggery, right up to his furry neck! And now he’s asking RCS voters to put him on the board that is already lousy with insiders.

Well, if you think the RCS board of education has been lousy with teachers and teachers’ spouses, and if you feel you’ve been left out in the cold by the Latter-Hyslop-Brown mob (all of their discussions take place behind closed doors, the BoE meetings are so insubstantial most people don’t even attend any more (except for those who have something to gain), and the public has been all but shut out of any serious decision-making process).

What’s even worse is that once the Latter-Hyslop-Brown gang got on the board, no one had a chance. But let’s face the truth, people. You made your beds and now you have to sleep in them. Good for you, RCS school district voters, you now have failing schools and are spending another $42 million to keep those responsible for the failure in the decision-making positions. Congratulate yourselves, RCS voters! You’re filling the pockets of RCS employees and their unions to the tune of 75% of the $42+ million they want you to approve on May 20th! Go ahead! Add McFerret, Jones and Furst-Hotaling to the BoE and shoot yourselves in the other foot.

Just do a search of this blog to learn about the ape that your BoE almost immediately put in the president’s chair: James Latter! He works for the Saudi-Arabian plastics manufacturer Sabic. Yeah, the same Sabic (formerly G.E. Plastics) who has so poisoned the environment in and around Feura Bush/Selkirk that the land is dead! And Latter’s the president of your board of education. Thanks, RCS voters! While you’re at it, search for McFerran and read about that scoundrel!

Mr Fozzie Jones

Mr Fozzie Jones

But the worst was still to come. Your very Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Teachers Association, led by your very own crook and double-dipper teacher, Matthew Miller a.k.a. Matt the Mutt Miller, who just about a year ago was told he was no longer going to get the $18,000 he was being paid on top of his full teacher’s salary and for what? For being “energy manager.” But Miller’s crimes against the school district didn’t stop there and still don’t. He’s the teacher’s union rep at RCS. Yes, he’s the union rep for New York State United Teachers, NYSUT, at RCS, and works a reduced teaching load so he can dedicate time to union work….And yes, he does get his full teacher’s salary, too.

predatorsBut as a teacher and as a union rep, representing the special interests of the teacher, he crosses many, too many boundaries. Not even considering his double- even triple dipping into your tax dollars, he uses his positions as teacher and union rep to unfairly influence the voting when it comes to the BoE and the school budget. His boss, Alan McCartney, has turned wimp when it comes to keeping Miller under control, and so Miller and his associates Elyse Loughlin, are improperly attempting to influence the elections.

We have acquired a letter dated April 25, 2014, signed by both Matthew J. Miller as Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Teachers Association “president”, and Elyse Loughlin, PAC (Political Action Committee) chairperson, in which Miller and Loughlin announce the union’s support of the budget passed by the teacher-loaded RCS board of education. But Miller and Loughlin mention cuts in that letter, cuts that never were made! Lie Number One!

Matt-the-Mutt Miller as NYSUT Rep

Matt-the-Mutt Miller as NYSUT Rep

In that same letter, Miller and Loughlin announce their support of Bill McFerran (the RCS Sports Association goon), Furst-Hotaling, another insider and former member of the notorious private club known as the Pieter B. Coeymans PTO, and Michael Jones, whose wife is a teacher. Need we say more? But there is more.

Miller and Loughlin AGAIN start a smear campaign against the only candidate who is not closely associated with the teachers or the teachers union, NYSUT, Rodney Krzykowski. Matt Miller and Elyse Loughlin continue their failed attempts to discredit Mr Krzykowski based on their misinformed and ignorant propaganda that Mr Krzykowski is somehow unfit to be on the board of education! Would that be because he’s the only one not a card-carrying member of the teachers clique and the only one who truly represents the working class of this district? It gets even worse when Miller and Loughlin accuse the State Education Department  and the Commissioner of Education as being “weak kneed” for not removing Mr Krzykowski from office. Miller and Loughlin seem to think they know better than the entire New York State Education Department!!!

Mr Beaker "Weasel" McFerran

Mr Beaker “Weasel” McFerran

Dear readers, that letter says it all. Here we have individuals receiving outlandish salaries and benefits, the very ones to whom you entrust your children’s’ education, defying an individual’s rights to political freedom and to challenge an unjust system. These people, Miller and Laughlin, represent the teachers union, NYSUT, not YOU! Yet they are asking you to deprive a fellow citizen, sovereign or not, of his rights to represent you. Miller, Laughlin and their friends Latter, Engel, Hyslop, Brown all attempted to VOID YOUR VOTES by using their trickery to remove a man elected by YOU from his seat on the BoE.

It’s really disgusting that Miller, Laughlin and their cronies not only wanted to VOID YOUR VOTES but they want also to deprive a citizen of his protected rights of free political speech and association. Now that’s a message you really want your kids getting in the schools you are paying for. That’s the equivalent of intellectual sabotage and abuse of trust!

What’s really disgusting is that Miller, Laughlin and the people they want on the RCS CSD school board like James Latter (accused several times of ethical violations and violation of student and family confidentiality, a violation of the FERPA law), Engel, Hyslop, Brown (husband of Mary Partridge-Brown, the woman who almost gives Matt Miller a lap dance at school board meetings, she’s so close), now want to foist more insiders to do their union’s bidding, like Tina Furst-Hotaling and Michael Jones and worse still, Bill McFerran.

At the very least in the last elections the Fiends of RCS supported Patrick Brown and Jason Hyslop on the same board as the unethical James Latter; now they’re putting Furst-Hotaling and Jones on the same board as the tax-avoider Bill McFerran of the “old” RCS Sports Association, while crying Wolf! and pointing the finger at Mr Krzkowski. Will the hypocrisy never end in this RCS school district?

Matt Miller and Elyse Laughlin and their kind are not only traitors to their community and to their students, they advocate different constitutional rights for different groups! That in itself is a violation of the United States Constitution! They are attacking the system of laws as well, saying that the laws do not work (after all, if Mr Krzkowski were guilty of any crime other than exercising his constitutional rights, would he still be free?). Hell Miller and Laughlin even attack their own New York State Department of Education and its Commissioner when they don’t get their way and the Department of Education and its Commissioner don’t break the law for them.

Those are the types of teachers you have in the RCS Central School District. Those are the types of teachers that you have teaching your kids. Those are the types of people your are throwing $42 million at and letting them have their way with it. YOUR SCHOOLS ARE STILL FAILING RCS AND YOUR TEACHERS UNION IS STILL RUNNING YOUR BOARD OF EDUCATION. WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO SMARTEN UP? WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO WAKE UP! (Did you know that in a recent official appraisal done in the town of Bethlehem couldn’t find any comparables in the RCS school district and wrote “the RCS schools are failing” and cannot be compared with the Bethlehem properties!)

Everybody Pays Failing SchoolsOne final word: Remember the RCS Sports Association’s big plan to “donate” a refreshment stand to the RCS school district? Well, that’s stagnated for some time now. Just watch the thermometer on the RCS high-school grounds: It’s not moving! The fundraising is all but dead! But here’s the plan you don’t know about: McFerret is running for a seat on the RCS board of education along with two other supporters. What would you think if once they’re on the board they don’t get together with the other insiders and divert budget funds to the refreshment stand fund? Another bit of trickery you can bitch about. Right?

Rodney Krzykowsky is the only person left on that RCS central school district board of education who is not infected. Rodney Krzykowski is one of the only ones in this entire RCS district who has the balls to say out loud what the rest of you only say under your breath. Rodney Krzykowski is the only one on the RCS BoE who has the guts to represent the blue collars in this community. Rodney Krzykowski stands alone but has the guts to do so; the rest of your lousy RCS BoE are hypocrites and cowards. It’s about time someone said that, and it’s about time you readers start doing something about it.

New Baltimore Needs to Opt OUT of the Failing RCS CSD and Join the Thriving Coxsackie Team in Our Own Greene County Schools! New Baltimore has to wake up and realize that it has no representation in the RCS CSD; furthermore, the RCS CSD and the RCS board of education are so far gone, so corrupt, there’s no saving it! So save yourselves, New Baltimore!

How Do You Know It’s a Coeymanazi?

A Reader Posted On the Friends of RCS Facebook Page and Asked Very Fair Questions. Going Back to the Friends of RCS Facebook Page Not Only Were the Questions Not Answered, the Questions Had Been Deleted.

If the Friends of RCS Facebook Page is and Example of the Dialogue Their Candidates are Offering...

If the Friends of RCS Facebook Page is and Example of the Dialogue Their Candidates are Offering…

So We Visited the Friends of RCS Facebook Page to Verify the Report and Guess What?!?

We found a cutsie little quip on the Friends of RCS Facebook page,

We LOVE all of the dialogue and discussion that has been taking place over the past few weeks—

Question: But what kind of “dialogue and discussion” is it that the Friends of RCS so “LOVE“.  (Well, if you visit their page, it’s a dialogue between some unidentified “Friend” and a handful of commenters. Looks like what we’d call a “propaganda mill“.)

Answer: The Friends of RCS idea of “dialogue and discussion” does NOT include relevent questions. What it does include is ONLY what supports their perverse propaganda. So if it’s open and free discussion you’re looking for, you won’t find it on Friends of RCS. Here are the questions the reader sent us that were posted and then deleted by Friends of RCS:

Can anyone explain Pat Brown’s contradictory statements made at the Meet the Candidates Forum? Does he live in Coeymans or New Scotland (Feura Bush)? If he doesn’t support the budget and wouldn’t vote to approve the budget why are Vote YES signs around his campaign signs? Is it true he’s never attended an RCS BoE meeting? That he has never provided any inputs at BoE meetings?

Just curious about these questions and what Friends think.

Thanks very much!

The reader allegedly “liked” a couple of posts but the “likes” were left alone, but his/her questions and comments disappeared, were deleted. One comment was made in response to Jerry Deluca:

Jerry DeLuca: Read the bios, come ask questions. I am sure once you compare you will see which of the candidates will truly work for the best interest of the community, our school and our students. There are 3 candidates of the highest quality and integrity — you decide. May 21 is the day to vote. 

Comment Posted: Yes, I do agree that Vadney, Polyak and Sylvester are the best candidates for the district. Thanks for pointing that out, Jerry.

This is a clear indication of what we have been saying all along: The Friends of RCS is a closed, exlcusive club that does not like outsiders and does not tolerate free speech, legitimate, relevant questions, or dissent.

Friends Like Censorship ALL LIES So Do Their Candidates: Latter, Hyslop, Brown!

Friends of RCS Like Censorship
ALL LIES
So Do Their Candidates:
Latter, Hyslop, Brown!

UPDATE (Coeymans May 12, 2013): Our reader now reports that not only were his/her questions and comment deleted, Friends of RCS have now blocked him/her from even posting a note or comment! Is that because of our report? People, this is CENSORSHIP at its worst and it’s nothing new in Ravena-Coeymans. !

So, what does that tell you about any candidates the Friends of RCS support? That any Candidates supported by the Friends of RCS are “Friends” only because they do not tolerate free speech, legitimate, relevant questions, or dissent. In other words, all the public statements that James Latter, Jason Hyslop, and Pat Brown make are purest bullshit! They won’t represent YOU, they’ll represent the clique run by Jerry Deluca and his so-called Friends of RCS gang.

At least two commenters responding to our article,  Deluca, Vosburgh, Hughes: Irrelevant, Risky Questions, seem to have hit the nail on the head when commenting on the video of the so-called Meet the Candidates forum “organized” by the A.W. Becker PTA (that is, Denise Carl Hughes and Jerry Deluca). They find the whole circus a “mockery”:

There was little benefit to me by watching the video. I wanted to know something about Mr. Hyslop, Mr. Brown or Mr. Polyak, each of whom I know very little. First, let us consider the questioners. Many of them had long ago decided who they were going to vote for. Then what was the purpose of their questions considering that they were not trying to find out about those that were running. Was it to ask questions that would put some of the candidates in a bad light or a good light?…This meet the candidates event was a mockery, there was nothing about meeting the candidates…Was this mockery planned by the PTO/PTA to come out this way, or did it get away from them. They really should apologize particularly to the new people. They did have some opportunity, but talking about lawsuits, who painted the concession stand, etc was a waste. [Cookie, May 10, 2013]

And another comment:

I really didn’t think the questions were relevant; none of the candidates were embroiled in those controversial issues. [Simon, May 10, 2013]

We tend to agree. It all seemed like a lynching and a witch burning from where we were observing. A couple, but by far the minority, of questions did address real issues, like the bullying problem, but the rest? Pure attempts to smear or to misinform. (Read our commentary on the May 8, 2013, A.W. Becker PTA Meet the Candidates event at  Deluca, Vosburgh, Hughes: Irrelevant, Risky Questions.)

The bottom line is: We’re going to blow our own horn, now. This blog posts all comments regardless of their origin, even those that are downright insulting. We do have a policy of posting public warnings to individuals who are plain uncivil or abusive, asking them to clean up their act and stay on-topic or their comments will be trashed. That’s fair. We sincerely love discussion and dialogue that’s open, fair, and civil.

 Birds of a feather flock together!

Latter-Hyslop-Brown? or is it Denise Carl Hughes-Eileen Vosburgh-Jerry Deluca

Latter-Hyslop-Brown?
or is it
Denise Carl Hughes-Eileen Vosburgh-Jerry Deluca?

We truly believe that the leaders of Friends of RCS and their Facebook editor represent something very bad for this community,  and they don’t even try to conceal it! What can we possibly think of the candidates they claim to support after the censorship on the Facebook site and the circus that was announced to be a Meet the Candidates event?

There may be something behind all of this: Cheap real estate. Let’s ask Prudential Real Estate’s Josephine “Josie” Dority-Biscone, Marty Case or Joe Neri, Michael Biscone, Jerry Deluca, Laverne “Larry” Conrad about this soon. Far-fetched? Maybe. But where there’s smoke there’s fire.

ANSWER to Our Title Question: It’s either an Asskisser (a.k.a. intimidated resident) or a Coeymanazi wherever you see a Latter-Hyslop-Brown sign. Ride through Ravena and all you’ll probably see are For Sale signs in front of homes, empty storefronts, and Latter-Hyslop-Brown signs. Or you could go to an A.W. Becker PTA Meeting.

Don't Let This Happen to You!!! Reject James Latter, Jason Hyslop, and Pat Brown on May 21!!! The Editor

Don’t Let This Happen to You!!!
Say NO! to James Latter, Jason Hyslop, and Pat Brown on
May 21!!!

The Editor

Editor’s Note: Late Correction: We have seen a few Polyak, Sylvester, Vadney signs in Ravena. Bravo! We commend those few courageous souls!

Deluca, Vosburgh, Hughes: Irrelevant, Risky Questions

Seems that Dirty-Hands Jerry is Again Calling the Kettle Black When He Asks Candidates: “Have You Ever Been Convicted of a Crime?

Thou Shalt Not Throw Stones, Jerry.... Not When You Live in a Glass House

Thou Shalt Not Throw Stones, Jerry….
Not When You Live in a Glass House

We’d like to ask how that can be relevant to the how the schools are run by competent, caring elected officials?

Or was that a very poorly disguised attempt to intimidate? Are you going to misuse police resources to dig up dirt on someone?  You’d best be very, very careful, Jerry, because if we find out you’re doing that we’ll call you on it and then we’ll see if you’re pack of sheeple will save your ass. There are agencies that may be watching and waiting for just the right moment…and we won’t hesitate to cooperate in every way with our information, too.

I’d like to ask our readers to honestly ask themselves a single question: “Have you ever broken the law?”

Now be honest. Have you? The question is really academic and we already know the answer. Almost every single one of us has broken a law, almost on a daily basis, sometimes multiple times. The difference is: We haven’t been caught! And if we haven’t been caught, we’ve never been convicted. So let the one who has not sinned cast the first stone! Right, Jerry?

You're Not Above the Law, Gerald "Dirty-Hands Jerry" Deluca

You’re Not Above the Law, Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca

Adultery is a Class B Misdemeanor in the State of New York

loser handBy the way, Jerry, Adultery is still a Crime in New York State. What do you say to that, Jerry Deluca? And you and Cathy were actually “caught.” Right? Legend is that it was in the rescue squad facility or at the fitness club. Whatever, the location is unimportant. But you were an adulterer Jerry, Cathy. And you committed a Class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days in jail!Mr Deluca, you may be so ignorant that you don’t know the difference between the civil code defamation, which includes slander and libel, but you are in law enforcement, Jerry, you must certainly be aware of NY Penal (no, Jerry, not penile) § 255.17:

§ 255.17 Adultery.
A  person  is guilty of adultery when he engages in sexual intercourse with another person at a time when he has a living spouse, or the other person has a living spouse.
Adultery is a class B misdemeanor.

So, Jerry, with your history and your reputation, don’t you think  it would be prudent and safe if you kept your fat cake hole shut, and you kept your oversized bilge-bottom out of sight, at least until the elections are over?

Question for Sarah Engel, Wife of Board Member Howard Engel:

Sarah which e-mail lists are you misusing? School organization lists, Girl Scout lists, other lists that you have or have obtained and for which you have no permission to use and are using for a purpose that was not disclosed or intended at the time the information was provided?

We know it’s you sending out the Friends of RCS selective mass emailings. We’re just curious where you got all those selective e-mails because you’re not sending them to all interested persons in the district. Is there some secret that the rest of us aren’t supposed to know about? It’s our district and they’re our candidates, too. Or don’t you and Friends of RCS think so? Do you and Friends of RCS think the district belongs to you alone?

So, Sarah, come clean. Tell us where you got the e-mails and put the matter to rest. Embarass us if you’d like but tell the truth. You can manage that, right. But then, you’re a teacher, married to a teacher who teaches at Averill Park but sits and makes decisions on the RCS district board of education, who supports SpLatter-Hisslop-and Browneye, all of the RCS BoE teachers clique a.k.a. the “Fiends of RCS” whose slogan is:

We want MORE, Tax Them MORE!”

Eileen Vosburgh Sticks Up for FERPA Violations—Coddles James Latter

confidentialNow, as for Ms Eileen Vosburgh. It’s common knowledge that you and James Latter are in each other’s pockets. Wasn’t it you last year who went to bat for Latter when parents were clamoring for his resignation for violating student confidentiality, that is, Latter broke a law when he violated the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), HIPAA, and district policies, and distributed confidential information about a student to athletics staff. Yes, Ms Vosburgh, it’s true and common knowledge, and it’s public. At the very board of education meeting when a parent read off the accusations against Latter, you promptly took to the speakers podium to say on his behalf, “He’s a very nice person.”  Apparently you, Ms Vosburgh, don’t take the laws protecting students and parents very seriously either.

Scott Hughes, Former RCS BoE Prez, QUIT the BoE—Denise Hughes Forgets that Fact of Abandonment and Now Plays High, Mighty, and Self-Righteous. Hypocrite!

Denise Carl Hughes, you should have the good sense to shut up, too! Considering the fact that Mr John Vadney was put in the position of taking over leadership of the RCS board of education when your husband, Scott Hughes, QUIT and left the board. Why was that? Never mind, we’ll find out. Now tha’t’s community spirit à la Friends of RCS and the Becker PTA, right, Denise? When things aren’t going your way you just up and quit, abandon your civic commitments. That’s how much the Hughes cares about students, schools, the RCS district.

A bit of advice for Vosburgh and Hughes: First of all, a Notice of Claim is just that, a Notice. It makes the noticed agency aware of a problem that could incur its liability and gives the agency an opportunity to investigate and take corrective action. It inaugurates a process, not a legal proceeding.

Anyone in this RCS district who has ever made a complaint about teachers, athletics coaches, bus transportation, etc. knows that this RCS district has a very poor response rate, and generally ignores parents’ complaints. It seems that that poor record has so frustrated parents that the only way to get the RCS district administrators, principals, etc. to take a complaint seriously and actually respond and investigate a problem is to file a Notice of Claim with a dollar-sign attached. It’s not the parents’ fault that it has to be done that way, it’s the bad habits of the RCS district. Ms Hughes and Ms Vosburgh are very much out-of-touch with reality (or maybe it’s because their members of the exclusive club in the RCS district) if they are not aware of this fact. But the fact that both Hughes and Vosburgh don’t know the difference between a Notice of Claim and a lawsuit, and exhibit that ignorance publicly, is deplorable. Shame on you both!

It would behoove you both in future to engage your brains before you operate your mouths. It could very well save you some embarassment and keep you from looking like dumb biatches in public.

We do realize that your purpose was only to smear and you would have come closer to your goal if you had an ounce of intelligence. But both of you together hardly make half a chicken’s brain! (And neither of you are exactly ‘chickens’, clucks maybe, but not ‘chickens.’)

animation dancing turkey

army-solidier-camouflageAnd will someone PUHLEEZ collect some bottles or start an illegal raffle to buy H Andres Jimenez Uribe some civilian clothes and get him some English lessons?!? Did we hear him tell Denise Hughes to “Disengage conversation” or some such idiotic militarism. Get a life, Uribe! And then, later, “Did you kick me? Did you kick me?” Big macho National Guard clerk-desk-jockey feels threatened by a local woman who simply bumped into him when he stopped short. You sound like Josephine Tracey-O’Connor, Uribe, when she paraded around with her “He called me fat!” fantasy. Careful, Uribe, there were witnesses and we did have a bit of a chuckle at you expense. Yup! That’s another Friend of RCS, H Andres Jimenez Uribe.

Patrick Brown, Candidate, Contradicts Himself (Again!)

We’re not stupid, Mr Brown, so don’t treat us as if we’re not paying attention! Stop double-talking us!

What, really, is Brown’s position regarding the budget? When asked about the RCS 2013-14 school budget and whether he would support it, Brown answered ‘No. I would not vote for it.’ But Paddy, why then are your campaign signs flanked by “Vote YES!” signs? Are you telling us you do one thing thing but then we should do another? Is that how you’re going to behave if elected? Which is it, Patrick Brown? Is it a YES! I support the budget? Or a NO! I don’t support the budget! Or is this all lawyer-speak and you don’t really care?

Where do you really live, Patrick Brown? Also, Paddy, the 2013 Albany County official Board of Elections registered voters list shows you as residing at an address on Zabel Hill Road in Feura Bush. But at the Meet the Candidates event you explicitly stated that you live in the Town of Coeymans. But Feura Bush is in the town of New Scotland! Only one can be true, Paddy, either you live on Zabel Hill Road in Feura Bush and you lied about living in the Town of Coeymans or you don’t live on Zabel Hill Road in Feura Bush and you live somewhere in the Town of Coeymans, in which case you have provided fraudulent voter registration information. Which is it, Patrick Brown? Are you a liar or a fraud? (Voters need to ask this question, too!)

These will have to be the last comments on the May 8th Meet the Candidate circus. We have to move on to bigger, more pressing issues in this broken community. (Gotta chase a chubby, right Jerry?)

What Do NYSUT, Matt Miller, C. Miller, H. Jones Have in Common?

Literally Hundreds of Millions of Your School Tax Dollars Are Going to Pay the New York State United Teachers Union Reps in Our Schools Each Year.

Question: Why Should We Need Fundraisers?

So My Question Is This: Why Should You and Your Neighbors Have To Do Fundraisers to Send Our Students On Educational Field Trips? Why Not Just Demand that the Teachers Union Pay Their Own Reps?

This is the situation in the 697 school districts throughout New York state and it shouldn’t be that way. All of you parents and tax-payers should ask Matt Miller why he’s being paid to do union work when he’s supposed to be a teacher! Ask Matt Miller the next time you see him why he feels justified taking money you intended to be spent on education and using it to do work to promote the teachers union, New York State United Teachers.

You might also want to ask the NYSUT representative in the RCS schools, Mr Matt Miller, why, if he’s getting more than half his salary paid by you and he’s doing teachers union work for it, WHY!?! you have to do fundraisers to send your children on school field trips?

Oh! And by the way, before you start slamming the present RCS board of education just be advised that all of this crap started when Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and Cathy Deluca were on the RCS board of education, probably when Dirty Hands Jerry was president, and throughout that time Matt “the Mutt” Miller was the teachers union rep, and got himself the plum job of energy manager, too, while trying to position his wife to steal a principal’s job and abusing Hakim Jones. Yeah! They were pretty busy then, too.

If you’re a plumber or an electrician or a carpenter, do taxpayers pay your union representatives? Do you think the employees at now bankrupt Hostess had taxpayers paying their union reps? Can you think of one single reason why you should be paying for NYSUT’s union rep in our district or any other school district? If so, please share it with us.

 Recycle A Teacher / Union Rep

Recycle A Teacher / Union Rep

Just think, if Matt Miller is making at least $70K a year (Actually, in 2012, Matthew “Matt the Mutt” J. Miller made $88,164.00, and then he was paid at least another $10,000 as energy manager! And Miller’s wife, also a teacher, is making more than $60K!) in teachers salary (not counting his many other benefits) and at least half of that were reimbursed by NYSUT to the RCS school district, you’d have an additional $35K for field trips and the little educational extras. And that’s a conservative figure!


Coaches, Teachers Using High-Energy Consuming Appliances! Why?

Vampire-energy-power-wasteWe’ve also received an unconfirmed report that coaches and teachers at RCS high school are using unauthorized coffeemakers and hotplates, that windows are being blocked, etc. Are they all stupid? Or are they making a statement in protest to their darling Matt Miller being canned as energy manager? Maybe somebody should be making inspections and asking some questions why those morons are being so irresponsible? Or are they saying that they’re too stupid to know they’re wasting energy, wasting your tax dollars, and that they actually need some dorkus to babysit them? Ask some questions, people!


Bus Garage Lunatic Asylum! What is Going On There?

stopWe’ve reported several times on the lunacy going on at the RCS school district bus garage. Our reports ranged from busdrivers refusing to let students on the bus to be transported home. Students being left behind and having to be picked up by parents. A student actually walking home on 9W. A broken down bus on the NYS Thruway and a busdriver, rather than getting the minor students to safety, has them push the bus!

Now we are hearing about students looking for their usual bus and finding that the bus numbers are changing, confusing the hell out of the kids! And mechanics driving buses? Are they certified to do that? Are there students on board?

And what’s the smoke screen being sent up by the manager and her lackies?


The Feature Story

What Do NYSUT, Matt Miller, C. Miller, H. Jones Have in Common?

Well, it certainly seems that there was some racism going on in the RCS school district that involved the NYSUT teachers union representative, Matt Miller, Miller’s wife Karen Miller, who now teaches in the Catskill school district, former interim superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, and the current principal at Pieter B. Coeymans elementary school, Hakim Jones.

We are waiting for confirmation of the facts but it’s safe to share that what we now know is pretty gruesome and indicates that there was ugly racism at work on Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca’s and wifey Cathy Deluca’s watch, and collaborated in by teacher and union rep, Matt “the Mutt” Miller, that indicates that the Delucas (as sitting board of education members at the time), Matt Miller (who was the NYSUT rep at the time), and Karen Miller, Matt Miller’s wife, along with Elisabeth “Betsy” Smith, former principal of Pieter B. Coeymans elementary school and later RCS CSD superintendent, had hatched a plan to sideline Hakim Jones, principal of Pieter B. elementary, and install Karen Miller as principal!

According to unconfirmed reports, Matt Miller pushed, with the Delucas’ and Smith’s support, to sideline Jones, an African-American, and to put Karen Miller, Matt Miller’s wife, in the principal’s office. In the meantime, Karen Miller was installed as interim principal, while they shoved every humiliating job available down Jones’ throat, probably hoping he’d throw in the towel and disappear. Well, Jones had enough and filed a grievance, and like all bullies, the Deluca’s, the Millers, and Smith backed down. Hakim Jones resumed his position as principal of Pieter B. Coeymans elementary school, a post he continues to hold today.

It looks like the Miller-Deluca connection goes way back and has some very seedy history.  So, it’s no wonder that Miller, Deluca, the teachers on the RCS board of education, and NYSUT are in each others’ pockets.

Anything to say, Mr Miller? NYSUT?

Anything to say, Mr Miller? NYSUT?

But you’d like to ask where NYSUT was when the voting scandal was in the making, or even more importantly, where was NYSUT when Matt “the Mutt” Miller was inciting students to bully other students during the 2012-13 school budget voting scandals. In fact, where were the teachers when the parents were in an uproar about the abuse their children were experiencing at RCS schools. Answer: Doing what they do best; feathering their own beds and ambushing anyone who posed a threat to their scheming!

Matt Miller has a history, apparently, of taking very good care of Matt Miller and those close to him; this doesn’t bode well for NYSUT‘s overall image, either. But like any other union, NYSUT takes care of itself, and Matt Miller is a company man and intent on taking care of himself, too. But our burning question is this: was NYSUT condoning Miller’s self-serving abuse of a fellow teacher and union member? Wasn’t Miller, as the teachers union representative,  supposed to be ensuring the welfare of Hakim Jones and promoting his career, rather than selfishly ensuring the advancement of his wife’s career over against that of a hard-working, dedicated African-American? This tells us a lot about Matt Miller and the precious teachers union, NYSUT as well as their attitudes regarding minorities, justice, fairness, and equal opportunity.

And you’d better give some serious thought to the kind of people that are teaching your children values, morals, ethics. You can’t teach what you don’t have or know, right? So why are people like the Millers still being exposed to developing minds and characters? What do you think they’re teaching them?

Bravo! Pieter B. Coeymans Elementary School Principal, Hakim Jones, for having the courage to do what’s right and fight back!

Where was the Times Useless when all of this newsworthy drama was playing out? I guess they were out to lunch at the time, or more likely libeling some poor bastard like Rodney K.

Again, the exact history of this case has not yet been confirmed but our sources are reliable. Sure, we may be running the risk of Times Union pseudo-journalism by publishing this before absolute confirmation, but Hey! grant us this one. If you have better facts, share them and we’ll be happy to publish!

Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk [Very Personal] Musings

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this page NOW or get your parent to supervise your visit!

This Is Going to be a Plainer Posting than You’re Used To. The Reason May Be the Lackluster Subject or Because the Individuals Simply Defy Description, They’re So Bizarre and Scary.

This one’s for you, Cupcake!

They’re the Coeymanazis, the Women and Eunuchs of
Cathy Deluca’s Coeymanazi Cupcake Club a.k.a.
“Save the Arts at RCS”
(the Arts of Deception and Hypocrisy) and
“RCS Sports Association”
(Where Anything or Anyone is ‘Fair Game’!)

Whalen offers toxic apples!

RCS Board of Education Teachers Clique Deceit: And as for Alice Whalen’s big mouth: Alice, for all you have to say, didn’t YOU review all of the applications submitted for the business manager (you were all confusing the numbers at the meeting)? So wouldn’t you have also had the opportunity to have reviewed the applications for interim superintendent, too? If so, did you? That’s not what we heard from you, Alice. And unless the RCS board of education website is not up-to-date, Jeff Luckens chairs the personnel committee, and Howard Engel and Edward Reville are the other two members. So what’s the beef, people, you’re all bitching about the selection but YOU run the committee, Engel, Reville must have reviewed the applications or should have, and Whalen could have reviewed all of the applications! So SHUT UP you deceitful dregs!

Times Union Editorial: “We’re glad, finally, to report that there seems to be more discontent than ever in Ravena, Coeymans and Selkirk…”

“We’re glad, finally, to report that there seems to be more discontent than ever in Ravena, Coeymans and Selkirk”*

(*Statement in a recent Albany Times Union editorial)

Filthy Rags
Another Times Union Editorial

A recent Times Useless (a.k.a. Albany Times Union, a newspaper owned by the Hearst Corporation) editorial sounds like it’s dictated by Alice Whalen or Howard Engel: “We’re glad, finally, to report that there seems to be more discontent than ever in Ravena, Coeymans and Selkirk…” But to cover its ass legally, the editorial expressly uses the word “opinion” to protect itself from possible liability and lawsuits.

Or, maybe the Times Useless knows what’s best for the RCS community and district. Maybe the Times Useless should vote for all of us and maybe that will save our useless butts. Yeah! Let’s all ask the Times Useless editor to vote for all of us. That will solve all of our problems and we’ll finally get some positive press out of that useless rag! (I don’t really think that’s a great idea.)

Now, think, good readers: When can you remember the Times Useless ever writing something fair, balanced, decent about the RCS community or the RCS school district? The Times Useless enjoys what is called Schadenfreude (pronounced: shadenfroyde), the delight in another’s bad luck or suffering. Is that the best the Times Useless can serve up about our community? There are two possibilities that come to mind when I read something as slanted and biased as the Times Useless editorial:

  1. Either the editorial was written by someone who has no knowledge of the community and the district, an outsider in other words. If that is the case, the editorial in the TU rag is totally unreliable, is the product of ignorance and simplemindedness, calculated only to victimize a suffering community and to make money by scandalizing us.
  2. Or the editorial was written by someone being fed the false facts and what to write. Someone or some group in our RCS community is providing the TU rag with misinformation about the community. In that case, the rag is totally unreliable and is a mere tool of some shadowy crook using it to manipulate public opinion against the RCS community and district. But what’s to gain by destroying the dignity of our community and embarrassing the good, hard-working majority by writing such garbage? Who knows? Christ Jesus was innocent but was sold for 30 pieces of silver…what’s the price of selling out the RCS community and blaming the innocent?  Evil does work in bizarre ways to accomplish its purposes, though.

The bottom line is: There are traitors in our midst and there are sheeple who believe them (including the Times Useless). But isn’t it great to know we have the support and the compassion of the Times Union to encourage us in our moments of challenge and in the negotiation and decision-making process? Isn’t it great to know that the local rag is so happy at what it seems to think is our continuing descent to despair? Thank you! Times Union for your kind observations. It’s good to know you’re there for your neighbors! Scumbag rag!

The unsigned editorial then continues to describe the RCS school district’s operation as “school district’s follies.”

Hidden Costs of the RCS Bottle Blitz

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

RCS Bottle Blitz
Ill-Conceived, Ignorant, and Destructive!

RAVENA-COEYMANS-SELKIRK — Kathy DeLuca and Lorraine Misuraca (left to right) next to the countless bottles donated last Thursday at the RCS High School cafeteria. Photo by Tom Tucker (Source: News Herald 138/22, July 19, 2012)

When asked several times on the RCS Friends and More Facebook site, Cathy Deluca refused to respond to the question, “How much money did the Bottle Blitz make?” Her response was, “Just ignore him.” Apparently it’s a big secret (like so much else surrounding her activities. See our article, Asskissers: No Answers, Just Censorship.). She wasn’t asked what the cost of the RCS Bottle Blitz might be. So we’re providing an estimate of the devastating cost of Deluca’s RCS Bottle Blitz.

In a recent CNN report Soft drinks: Public enemy No.1 in obesity fight? (CNN Fri April 27, 2012) Caleb Helleman writes:”Meanwhile, about 1 in 4 Americans gets at least 200 calories a day from sugary drinks. These numbers, along with work like Stanhope’s, gives ammunition to doctors and public health officials who say soda should be treated as public health enemy No. 1.”

Of course, CocaCola, the world’s largest soft-drink manufacturer takes a different view, saying: “There is no scientific evidence that connects sugary beverages to obesity,” says Katie Bayne, Coca-Cola’s president of sparkling beverages in North America, in an exclusive interview.” While Samantha Levine, spokesperson for New York mayor Bloomberg, says “Coke’s numbers have more fizz than fact. “The fact remains,” she says, “sugary beverages are a key driver of the obesity crisis that is killing 5,800 New Yorkers and costing the city $4 billion annually.”

According to an article published in the New York Times, “Soda: A Sin We Sip Instead of Smoke?” (Mark Bittman, February 13, 2012): “The problem is that at roughly 50 gallons per person per year, our consumption of soda, not to mention other sugar-sweetened beverages, is far from moderate, and appears to be an important factor in the rise in childhood obesity.

Fat in a Can!

This increase is at least partly responsible for a rise in what can no longer be called “adult onset” diabetes — because more and more children are now developing it.” The article continues, “Last week, the Obama administration announced a plan to ban candy and sweetened beverages from schools. A campaign against childhood obesity will be led by the first lady, Michelle Obama. And a growing number of public health advocates are pushing for even more aggressive actions, urging that soda be treated like tobacco: with taxes, warning labels and a massive public health marketing campaign, all to discourage consumption.”

Agendas like the RCS Bottle Blitz are in direct contravention and opposition to the White House, especially First Lady Michelle Obama’s focused campaign on health and nutrition, the National Institutes of Health, and public health efforts to stem the epidemic of obesity and related  health problems, and alcohol related morbidity and mortality, especially in young persons!

What about beer cans and bottles? Alcohol consumption can affect the individual, family, community in many ways, ranging from relatively minor consequences to incapacitation and even death, and the consumption doesn’t have to be extreme nor does it have to be “alcoholism.” The disease potentially affects everything in a person’s life, as the consequences of drinking snowball into bigger and bigger problems. There is a definite sense of progression with the effects that alcoholism has on an individual. Over the long run, things always get worse….never better.

Brewing for Trouble!
Potential Corpses in a Can!

To get some idea of the cost of alcohol abuse, the National Institutes of Health NIH released a report “Economic Costs of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Estimated at $246 Billion in The United States,”  which states that: “The new study reports that alcohol abuse and alcoholism generated about 60 percent of the estimated costs ($148 billion), while drug abuse and dependence accounted for the remaining 40 percent ($98 billion).” Here’s the real sock-it-to-me: Those figures were for 1998! Imagine what they in today’s figures! (Here’s a hint: The update calculations indicate that costs of alcohol abuse grew from $148 billion in 1992 to $185 billion in 1998, approximately a 25 percent increase, for an average annual increase of 3.8 percent. Source: Economic Costs of Alcohol and Drug Abuse (2002))

Alcohol abuse produces its evil effects mentally, physically, socially, spiritually. The overall cost to our society from alcoholism:

1) Lost time and money
2) Lost lives
3) Broken homes and families
4) Lost productivity (missed days of work, lost jobs, etc.)
5) Litigation and criminal costs

And don’t you wonder: How many of those cans and bottles were drained by underage kids? How much dangerous sex occurred after downing a couple of brews? How many jumped behind the wheel to drive?

About 5000 teenagers die every year due to alcohol use. In 2008, 11,773 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (32%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States. (Source: SADD Underage Drinking).

Teens who are drinking are more likely to have unprotected sex, which can lead to potentially fatal sexually transmitted diseases, as well as unwanted pregnancies. (For more information on teenager alcohol related deaths see Teen Alcohol Abuse).

Headlines like the San Francisco Chronicle’s “Teenage Drinking a U.S. Epidemic” [2/26/02] and the New York Post’s “Boozed-Up Teens In Dangerous Liaisons,” [2/7/02] shout along with the advocates’ PR campaigns, often including hyped-up quotes from people like the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA)’s head Joe Califano, such as “Alcohol is the fatal attraction for many teens.”

So, for those of you who come up with the stock response, “personal,” “political,” “private vendetta,” or some similar stupidity to anything that anyone says against the idiotic and poorly planned projects some misguided adults in this community come up with to raise money for the district’s children, we’d like to point out that national and well-established statistics point to the fact that soft drinks and alcohol are time bombs.

This raises the question, then, of the appropriateness and the ethics of collecting empty containers that once contained the dangerous substances to raise money for programs for children! Here’s the logic: To get empty cans and bottles, the cans and bottles first have to be purchased. They then have to be transported. Then their contents are consumed by adults or by minors. Once they’re in the body, they work their evil magic: obesity, diabetes, drunkenness, death, etc.

BUT:

All those pretty cans and bottles are given positive value by the program organizers, especially in the children’s innocent eyes, because those emptied containers are associated with field trips, fun,  friends! You are, in fact, positively reinforcing a misinformed positive image for the causes of major public health problems!

In other words, the RCS Bottle Blitz is sending the WRONG MESSAGE! It’s providing negative education and working against all public health efforts to curb soft-drink and alcohol consumption based on solid scientific evidence! It’s teaching those innocent vulnerable minds that soft drinks and alcohol are good, and they should be purchased and consumed, because the empty containers make happy things happen. What are you people thinking!!!!

What are you morons thinking?

In the July 19th News Herald, a newspaper that provides information and, Yes! education, features a large color photograph of Ms Cathy Deluca, the “inspired” organizer of the RCS Bottle Blitz, together with Lorraine Misuraca (not to be confused with Jenafer “Jena”Misuraca, who has served as the VP on  one of the RCS school PTO’s. Jena had to shut down the PBC PTO’s FaceBook page because of the arguing), posing stupidly self-satisfied in front of what are described as “47 bags of bottles and cans and 74 cases.” You don’t need a magnifying glass to make out the beer labels and the soda cans. And the title reads, “Bottle Blitz is huge success.” Not for your children’s health, not for the mortality statistics, not for the public’s health. But maybe for the misguided public image of a couple of ignorant residents and the bottom line of the beer brewers and the soda manufacturers, the manufacturers of corn syrups, and retailers.

The RCS Bottle Blitz is irresponsible and misleading in many ways and does not represent good education nor the interests of the children it’s publicized to benefit!

Now, our scathing question is not what was going on in the editor’s pinhead, nor what Cathy Deluca was thinking (that’s scary in itself), but where are the educators, the teachers in all of this. Shouldn’t those highly paid, highly educated, highly paid morons have come out with some facts and figures, some options, some alternatives? Oh! Excuse me! They have the summer off, don’t they.

Warning: And, given the atmosphere in the RCS school district, please don’t point a finger at the RCS board of education for not having stepped up to prevent this ill-conceived fiasco. You know as well as we do that if any BoE member, other than the teacher’s clique (by the way, where was Whalen, Engel, the teachers when this was being proposed? Teddy Reville, James Latter?)  lifted so much as a finger to point out the risks of the Bottle Blitz, he or she would have been lynched by the Coeymanazis. So don’t try to pull that one on us, Deluca and friends.

Special Notice: We make every effort to be truthful, complete, fair, and balanced on this blog; therefore, if you see anything that you know to be false or incorrect, or if you have additional information to clarify any issue, please let us know by e-mailing your information or by leaving a comment. It’s very important to us that we don’t fall into the same category as those whom this blog is intended to expose. Thank you very much in advance for your cooperation and assistance!
 

Asskissers: No Answers, Just Censorship

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

It Seems That Getting Answers Or Even Getting To Speak In This So-Called Community Is Getting More And More Difficult

Asked Several Times About How $$$ Much the so-called RCS Bottle Blitz Made at the First Collection on July 10, Cathy Deluca Avoids Answering and Tells Her Following, “Just Ignore Him!” Why, Cathy, is it Such a Big Secret?

They just love the fresh taste
and keep comin’ back for
more of the same!

Then the poop really hits the fan when Cathy Deluca is asked why she and Chubby Chubby-Chaser Hubby, Dirty Hands Jerry, don’t use some of their political connections to get some fundraisers, like ARANY, Deluca Public Affairs, Main Street Small Business Coalition, any of the local businesses (if any are left in RCS)–Yeah, the same ones the Coeymanazies like to punish–might organize something. Then the cat fur really started flying! That was getting “political.” The Deluca herd of moos really got their bovine knickers in a twist!

Do The Belong To You?
Don’t get these big mommas in a twist!

It’s always the ones who are spewing the rhetoric about community and doing what’s good and what’s right. Actually, it’s a gaggle of ass kissers who are sucking up to their Coeymanazi leaders, or a bunch of sociopathic obese humanoids who don’t dare appear in public, and so spend their waking hours worshipping the Bottle Blitz and its big momma, Cathy Deluca, on another censored FaceBook site.

One of our regular contributors, following a lead, joined one of the many RCS happy-happy FaceBook groups, “RCS Friends and More,” and tried to contribute some sense and insight to the bunch there. Well, try to convince a herd of cows it’s not milking time and prepare to get trampled by the stupid moos! Here’s an exchange relating to the RCS Bottle Blitz, where the contributor simply asked, one week after the first collection efforts, how much money was collected:

On June 23, 2012, Cathy DeLuca posted an announcement about her RCS Bottle Blitz project on the RCS Friends and More Facebook Site:

RCS Bottle Blitz for Field Trips!
Please consider donating your REDEEMABLE bottles and cans
100% of the proceeds will go to Field Trips for RCS Students
Drop Off Dates:
July 10 (1pm – 8pm) & 11(10am – 4pm)
August 14 & 15, September 8 & 9
High School Cafeteria
Volunteers are needed to help sort. Large Group Pick-Ups may be arranged.
To Volunteer or for further information please email us at
RCS.BottleBlitz4Field Trips@gmail.com
PLEASE PASS IT ALONG!!

Then, on July 11, the day after the first day of the Bottle Blitz, Deluca the announcement:

Now on a positive note. The turnout for the RCS Bottle Blitz was a great success! The community participation was awesome and we are looking forward to an even bigger truck load in August. We had 72 cases of glass bottles and 47 LARGE bags of plastic and cans. I will let everyone know what the final $$ is as soon as I’m notified. I Huge Thank you to EVERYONE that helped sort and to the Staff at RCS for all their help and encouragement. So save us your bottles and cans, the next dates are August 14 & 15. And again THANK YOU EVERYONE!!

Then the fun begings when our contributor, HWV, asks on July 17th:

HWV: OK, Cathy, it’s been almost a week. How much was realized by the first day of the Bottle Blitz? How much $$$, Cathy???

[Editor’s Note: You will recall that Cathy Deluca’s advice to members on the RCS Friends and More site was, “Just ignore him.” Well, she’s good at following her own advice, managed to avoid answering the question at all. Starting to sound like the RCS Athletic Association’s transparency under James Latters’ “leadership?” This community had better demand accountability if Deluca’s asking for public support! There are legalities, you know! Are you listening superintendant of schools Elizabeth Smith?]

Debbie Oatman:  What is your problem? No matter how much they raised, it will be more than they had. Geez…why not try to be a team player rather than attempt to “stir the pot”. It’s time to heal. Do you not see what’s happening in your district? Come on, grow up, be the role model your kids need to see. Don’t you see how all of this crap is affecting your students?

HWV: Ms Oatman, of course I see what’s happening around here! How can you be so naïve? I’ve been watching, listening, analyzing for some time now. What have you been doing?

Michelle Waldenmaier Koeppel: Mr [redacted] I am going to ask you one more time to stop this on this page or I will remove you.

Jamie Cabiati Guntert: Love this! If there is any other way we can help raise money for this cause, please keep us posted.

HWV: Yes. Ask the Delucas if they can use some of their “political” connections through ARANY, Deluca Public Affairs, the Main Street Small Business Coalition, the NYS Assembly, the DEC to get some support. May be more effective than picking up bottles.

Debbie Oatman: Great job Cathy! Sounds like a great way to try to build up some much needed morale and comradery in a district torn. One small step at a time…

HWV: We all have to use the resources at our disposal, don’t we? Even when we have to do it out of the limelight. Corporeal acts of mercy are most valuable when they are done unseen! Remember the parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector?

Debbie Oatman: At least she’d doing something constructive and trying to take a small step at fixing a very broken district. You seem to want this mess to continue. Drama king maybe?

HWV: Look, as soon as we open our eyes and admit that there are not only good times but bad times, too, and admit that perhaps we may have something to learn even from the bad, there will be growth. If the name-calling continues, as you’re doing, suggestively rather than objectively, this area will continue to be broken. Look around you, read the blogs, synthesize, think, reflect (look within yourself) and we may get somewhere. As long as you’re focused externally, you’re missing what’s going on inside yourself. That can be a big mistake! Drama king? Not at all! Wounded healer, pastoral servant, perhaps. Interested observer, definitely.

Ashley Anne Irwin:  [Redacted], I thought you wanted these “discussions” to happen on your blog? So, why continue to start them in this group? If people want to see your opinion about things, they know where to look.

HWV: I don’t know what you’re talking about, Ms Irwin. Do you? The original question related to a community action inaugurated by Cathy Deluca, who, with her husband, Jerry Deluca, apparently have quite a number of “political” contacts, and are… involved in a number of business enterprises. Historically, such people are golden for fundraisers, and, if curried, may do a lot for a community or organization. Are you following this line of thought. One contributor can send a whole class on a field trip that might require tens of thousands of 5-cent deposit or 10-cent deposit bottles or cans. I would ask where the local businesses stand on this but there aren’t very many left, are there? I hope you can follow this train of thought. If not, I’ll explain it more simply by private e-mail, or on my own FaceBook account. Just request to be friended.

Ashley Anne Irwin: Her original post had nothing to do with anything political, you brought that up. And last night, one of the administrators asked that nothing “political” be brought to this group to respect the numerous members of this group that do not want to see it. So, stop.

HWV: Are you now deciding what’s political and not political? I mentioned “political” contacts nothing “political.” I’m wondering if you are reading challenged? The adjective “political” as used above has noting to do with making a “political” statement. You’re wasting my time; are you a product of the RCS schools?

Ashley Anne Irwin: Yes, sir, and I’m very proud of that. I’m proud to be part of an amazing community and district.

Debbie Oatman: If she’s wasting your time, then why bother to respond? Ashley…actions speak so much louder than words. So far, all we’ve seen/heard from Mr. [redacted] is alot of rhetoric. He seems to thrive on dysfuntion. I think we should not feed into him anymore. Let him go to his blog and spew his venom. He doesn’t seen to have much support anyway.

They’re at it again!
Got any gum, Michelle, Cathy, Ann?

HWV: I don’t know how much support I personally have, but when I visit the Smalbany blog I see they have more than 43,000 visitors and it seems to be growing by a couple of hundred each day. If you visit the blog, you can see for yourself. What are you afraid of? Anyway. You are boring me so you don’t have to read any more of my “rhetoric.”‘ Peace!

Michelle Waldenmaier Koeppel:  I really thought that this was going to be a site where we could share good news and catch up on old friends. Dan Gonyea set this site up for people to get together and share good times. I had the fortune of being an administrator of this page and I think that this is a disgrace and I am going to delete all the posts.

Jena Misuraca: Michelle I have been the PTO VP for the past 5 years and this year was forced to delete our entire PBC PTO page due to the arguing. It is sad. Good luck managing this page.

[Editor’s Note: Misuraca is probably referring to the Pieter B. Coeymans PTO  site that was dominated by Donna Leput-Hommel, and several other Coeymanazis, who, during the budget campaigning, tried to punish local businesses for not supporting the 2012-2013 school budget.]

 Michelle Waldenmaier Koeppel:  [Redacted] obviously you did not see my post below about the disgrace that is going on here. If you do not have anything nice to say please do not say a thing. As an administrator I will remove you from this site your drama continues when people are posting positive things. This site is for the “Friends and children of RCS” Please stop this non sense. Anne Irwin likes this.

HWV: I’m afraid this side is a bit too closed-minded to make any significant contribution to anything. You have made your statements rejecting every possible attempt I have made to offer alternative viewpoints and to foster some sort of openmindedness. Your subscribers appear to be dyslexic or aphasic, or lexically challenged; as a result, they continue to march off the cliff despite charitable warnings that the bridge is burning! It’s very difficult to communicate intelligently with a hoard of depressed lemmings hell-bent on suicide. So, dear censor, please “remove” me from this site. I am personally requesting that action for the above reasons. That way I won’t be disturbed in my important work by bored matrons’ pessimistic whining, and Mrs Deluca’s impoverished attempts to look clean. Thank you for complying with my request as soon as possible.
Unable to post comment. Try Again.

And so it went. Cathy Deluca ignores the question. Her bovine followers follow suit. The aphasia, dyslexia of the lexically challenged friends and graduates of the progressive RCS schools system continue with the status quoThey can’t read, and if they do they don’t understand what they’re reading. They retaliate by name-calling and ignorance. When that fails, their watchdogs come in with the censorship. We don’t understand what you’re saying so bye-bye! Nazis!

So, if you ever consider joining one of the so-called RCS “friends” groups, just be aware that you might have to memorize the very simple language script, to say just the right thing, to stock up on asskisser’s gum, and you’ll need to really like kissing cow-ass!

Coeymans Police Suppress Freedom of Speech!

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

Please participate in the Coeymans Police Poll at Poll.

Coeymans Police Officer Ryan Johnson: If you do not cease and desist immediately from your malicious mischief and vandalism in violation of our First Amendment civil rights, we will file a federal complaint against you, the Coeymans Police Department, the Coeymans town board, and David Soares.
You’ve been served with notice
!

Coeymans Police Are Running Around Frantically
Silencing Free Speech!

Freedom Of Speech, Of The Press, Of Association, Of Assembly And Petition
This Set Of Guarantees, Protected By The First Amendment, Comprises What We Refer To As Freedom Of Expression. The Supreme Court Has Written That This Freedom Is “The Matrix, The Indispensable Condition Of Nearly Every Other Form Of Freedom.” Without It, Other Fundamental Rights, Like Even The Right To Vote, Would Wither And Die.

So, how would you feel about police officers cruising through the community with a roll of duct tape, stopping people on the street and taping their mouths shut; other officers stuffing up citizens’ ears with earplugs to prevent them from hearing certain messages. You can bet they’re not the messages that the police or the local administration want you to hear! That’s what’s happening in Ravena and Coeymans, New York…

Get your filthy hand off!!

Well, citizens, residents, that’s what’s happening in the Town of Coeymans: Censorship without due process is being unlawfully enforced by at least one Coeymans police officer, Ryan Johnson, in violation of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution!

Yes, it’s Ryan Johnson [again!] who is cruising through town, stopping at local businesses, and removing public information postings that he doesn’t seem to like. Included among those postings is a poll page showing a cartoon of Johnson doing what he allegedly does best: abusing citizens. The second is one that has little or nothing to do with Johnson, roving rogue cop, and is an announcement of a defense fund planned for a public servant who has been unlawfully harassed by the Coeymanazis and which would also be used to support families prosecuting for bullying under the Child Dignity Act!

HOW DARE YOU RYAN JOHNSON! WHO APPOINTED YOU CUSTODIAN OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT IN COEYMANS?!? WHO EMPOWERED YOU, RYAN JOHNSON, TO ACT AS CHIEF CENSOR OF FREE SPEECH IN COEYMANS?!?

Coeymanazi Motto
They’re all for free speech…their own!

(Speech Bubbles: “I’m all for free speech…unless I find it personally offensive.”
Double click any image to see a larger view.)

This is yet another instance of the Coeymans police depriving local residents and citizens of their civil rights. Now, our question is, AGAIN:

Where are you, FBI?
That’s just a cry for help. But aren’t you guys supposed to be investigating occurrences of violations of civil rights?
Public corruption and abuse?

We know where the FBI is and so should YOU:
200 McCarty Avenue
Albany, NY 12209
Phone: (518) 465-7551
Fax: (518) 431-7463
Special Agent in Charge
Clifford C. Holly
Assistant Special Agents in Charge
– Richard J. Licht
– Kathryn Peterson

This is really very serious crime being committed by Guess who? Law enforcement! But Ryan Johnson is just a tool, a mindless zombie who the lead Coeymanazies are  using to suppress residents and citizens.

They’re Poisoning The Community!

Lead Coeymanazis, like all enemies of the Constitution, need henchmen, and so Gregory Darlington, Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, Tom Dolan (who is trying to get himself elected to the New York State Senate! Don’t let that happen!), and the Godfathers heirs (horndogs John T. and Michael Biscone, his majesty king…oops, I meant mayor John Bruno) have thugs like Ryan Johnson do their dirty work for them…or Dirty-Hands Deluca can step in when they need a baggy suit. Our shit-head Albany County District Attorney, David Soares (who is also seeking re-election in November! Don’t let that happen, either!) turns a blind eye to all of this–ever wonder why? Just check our our previous posts showing how tainted, compromised, corrupt, incestuous the connections are in Albany County! It’s there in black and white…it’s there in black and white because its out of the reach of the Coeymanazis!

 Ladies and Gentlemen, Residents, Citizens…All of you soon to be reduced to deaf and dumb zombies! We all know that to kill a snake, any low-life, you have to cut off the head! Yes, you have to go after the Ryan Johnsons, the monkies, the tools–but remember, you’ll have to pay his legal bills if you do, the Coeymanazi-owned-and-operated town administration will defend him–but you have to cut off the heads of the monster, and those heads are: Gregory Darlington, Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, Tom Dolan (who is trying to get himself elected to the New York State Senate!), and the Godfathers heirs (horndogs John T. and Michael Biscone, his majesty king…oops, I meant mayor John Bruno; looks like Greg Teresi took the easy–and smart–way out of the vipers nest, he resigned!)

Just to be clear on this issue: NO police officer has any right whatsoever to remove any public posting that is not in clear violation of current law! That is an abuse of your civil rights to express yourself and to be heard. It is a crime against the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. It must NOT be tolerated!

His Spawn
Are Alive and Well
In Coeymans!

Coeymans Police Officer Ryan Johnson is Out of Order
Both Johnson AND his Coeymanazi Handlers/Bosses Must be Prosecuted!

Protect your constitutional rights! Print out a copy of this article and hand it to a friend, a relative, a co-worker! They’ll thank you for it!

Please participate in the Coeymans Police Poll at Poll.

Be Pissed!
Be Really Pissed!

Send that Dunce Dirty-Hands Jerry Back to School!

The Price of Listening to Dirty-Hands Jerry and Bottle-Gal Cathy!
The Price of Reading the Times Union or the News Herald!

It’s Really A Shame That The Good Residents of the RCS Central School District Have to Be Exposed to Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca’s and Bottle-Gal Cathy Long Deluca’s Abuse of the Privileges Associated with Freedom Of Speech!

They Just Dress Up the Old Lies In Different Outfits!

Freedom of Speech Does Not Mean You Can Say Anything, True or False, Or Pervert the Information or Misinform the Public, Something the Delucas and their Dwindling Gang of Coeymanazis Don’t Seem To Get. You Just Can’t Waddle Up to the Speakers Podium and Talk Any Trash You Like! You Have To Be Responsible, Deluca! You Have to be Responsible For the Trash You Talk, Jerry!

Is That You, Jerry?

I made my point in Part I: of this series that Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he attempts to interpret the law when reading Article 18 of the New York State General Municipal Law. “Dirty-Hands” Deluca has no background in law or apparently law enforcement but he seems to be claiming to be an expert in both, while being competent in neither. Or does your Plattsburg political science degree include a free coupon for a Harvard, Yale, or even Albany Law School degree, Jerry? Didn’t really think so.

Congratulations Jerry!
Master Baiter of Misinformation (M.B.M.)
Class of 2012

But old “Dirty-Hands” Deluca and his partner in dereliction Old “Bottle-Butt” Deluca are up to their old tricks again, trying to paint the world black so that they can appear white. They’ll never accept what they really are–neither will we. It’s too scary!

So, for our 34,000+ dear and loyal readers, and the Coeymanazi lurkers–we know you’re there–here are a couple of definitions that may help to understand what we’re talking about here:

Dirty-Hands” is our phrase for the legal doctrine of unclean hands, which means that in order to be taken seriously, anyone pointing the finger at another person and making accusations must him/herself be innocent of any wrongdoing. Well, we know that’s not true in the Delucas’ case.

Conflict of interest,” is where a person uses his or her public position or office to benefit or profit personally; it’s misusing your official position for personal gain. Again, this may also apply to the Delucas and their minions.

Contract” is an agreement with specific terms between two or more persons or entities in which there is a promise to do something in return for a valuable benefit known as consideration. The law of contracts is at the heart of most business dealings. The existence of a contract requires finding the following factual elements:

  1. an offer
  2. an acceptance of that offer which results in a meeting of the minds
  3. a promise to do something
  4. compensation or payment in some form)
  5. a time or event when the agreed service must be provided (an agreement to meet commitments)
  6. terms and conditions for meeting the commitments, including fulfilling promises
  7. providing the service or meeting the commitments.

A lawsuit a common term for a legal action by one person or entity against another person or entity, to be decided in a court of law, sometimes just called a “suit.” The legal claims within a lawsuit are called “causes of action.” To exist, a  lawsuit does not involve a meeting of the minds or any of the essential ingredients for a contract; a lawsuit is not a contract!

Notice is also critical when suing a state or local government. Many states and municipalities have “notice of claim” provisions in their statutes and ordinances that state that, before a lawsuit is started, a notice of claim must be filed within a reasonable time, usually three to six months after the injury occurs. The notice must contain the date of injury, how it occurred, and other facts that establish that the prospective plaintiff has a viable Cause of Action against the government. A “notice of claim” is not a lawsuit nor is it a contract.

So, for Dirty-Hands Deluca and Bottle-Butt to say that filing a notice of claim is a conflict of interest because it is a contract is completely off-base! Deluca simply doesn’t know what he’s talking about (like that’s something new?).

In addition, because Deluca doesn’t understand what he’s reading from his script, he’s trying to make people believe something that is false: that is, he’s trying to make you believe what the Coeymans Police Department and the Coeymanazis believe: that seeking the protection of the law to be compensated for a wrong or for an injury is a conflict of interest if you are a public official (or anyone else, for that matter)!

Deluca and the Coeymanazis are Burning it Again!

The United States Constitution guarantees equal protection under the law; it does not say that you lose that protection if you’re a public official. (But that never mattered to the Coeymans Police or to the Coeymanazis!)  In fact, many states and municipalities have made provisions for defending public officials if they are sued, whether they are right or wrong!
What Deluca is trying to make people believe is that a notice of claim or a lawsuit is a conflict of interest. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Old Dirty-Hands Jerry is trying to misinform the public so that–he and the Coeymanazis hope–members of the board of education will be forced to resign and that will leave him and the Coeymanazis in full control. (I suppose if you can’t get re-elected Jerry and Cathy, the best next thing is to steal the power. Right?) But consider these examples, and think about them…

  • An off-duty  fireman is entering a school building and a piece of concrete falls and injures him; she sues the town to compensate him for his injury and losses.
  • A voter and member of the town council is walking into the polling place to vote, he trips on a damaged piece of sidewalk and breaks his hip; he sues the municipality for the injury and liability associated with the lack of maintenance of the sidewalk.
  • A teacher’s daughter is bullied in school and suffers physical injury as well as psychological trauma due to the lack of supervision at the school; the teacher sues the school administration.
  • A doctor is entering the emergency room and slips on a wet floor, breaking his arm; he sues the hospital.
  • A person serving on a public committee is falsely accused of misconduct by another member and is arrested; his reputation is damaged and his chances of re-election are put into jeopardy. The committeeman takes legal action against the person making the false accusation and defamation.

Do you honestly feel that any of these people have to resign from their positions in order to get justice for the loss, damage, injury they suffered? Or in each of the examples, what if it wasn’t the fireman, the teacher,  member of the town council, the doctor but their spouse or their child who is suing? Does that mean that the parent or the spouse has to resign his or her position? Of course not! There’s no conflict of interest at all.

In fact, that would be depriving the individuals of their constitutional rights! But we are not saying that the person suing should have the power or authority to decide for him or herself how much money should be awarded for the injury. That’s silly! The court will decide that or a jury will determine the award. The point is: someone was hurt or suffered losses because the other party was negligent or criminal. That means that for justice to be done, the injured party must be compensated. Do you disagree?

Now, put yourself in the positions in the example. What do you think would be fair and just?

We’re not talking about what the Biscones, the Brunos, and a couple of other RCS ruling tribes (the P…o, and A…o tribes), the Delucas, and the rest of the Coeymans gang do, like: My son has a construction company and he’ll do the job (…and I’ll get a cut). Or, the town attorney will take your case and for $50,000 make your felony disappear and you get to do public service for 80 hours. Or, my daughter works for your real estate company so I’ll let you sell the town property and she can get the commission. And this real-life RCS  list goes on. I think you understand what the point is. And you’ll see the conflict of interest we’re talking about.

The way things work is that if someone or a group injures you or causes you losses, you have every right to go after them. As a parent you must defend your children and if they are hurt by the negligence of others, you have every right to be made whole again. And it shouldn’t mean that the community loses a dedicated and valuable person in the process.

Guess who?

And it doesn’t mean that good people have to suffer because the evil ones have the podium and their three minutes to spread lies! A law suit against the municipality. Note: A person in litigation against a municipality over a contract claim is not thereby disqualified from running for elected office. (see N.Y. Op. (Inf.) Atty. Gen. 1975 -272) so why would a sitting public official be prohibited by the law or any mishapen attempt by Coeymanazis to invoke some obscure  local ethics code, apparently written by ignoramuses? An important elment in the consideration of “conflict of interest” is the question of control over the so-called contract. We must ask whether the public official has “control” over the contract contract…?

That you, Cathy?

In other words, does the public official have the power or duty to negotiate, prepare, authorize or approve the contract or authorize or approve payment under the contract, or to audit bills or claims under the contract, or appoint an officer or employee who has any of the powers or duties set forth above (see Gen. Mun. Law. §801)? Clearly the answer to this question when speaking of a member of the board of education, even if Dirty-Hands Jerry and his FaceBook addict Bottle-Gal Cathy Deluca knew what they were talking about when referring to a “contract.” If what Dirty-Hands Jerry and Bottle-Gal Cathy were true, it would be saying is that no teacher or spouse of a teacher sitting on the board of education could vote on anything, especially approval of a budget, from which they would derive benefit directly or through a spouse or a child!

So here are some examples of conflict of interest to make this clearer:

  • An attorney who is town or village attorney should not represent an applicant before the local zoning department;
  • The chair of the planning board who is employed by a real estate company should not participate in the consideration of a subdivision application made by that real estate company;
  • A town planning board member who is also a geologist in the private sector may not be compensated or enter into an agreement to be compensated for soil borings on a project before the planning board.

In each of these instances, there might be the appearance that the public official might be using his position for personal gain or benefit. The simple solution is to remove one’s self from the situation, to recuse one’s self from the process, and avoid the appearance of influencing the outcome. It does not mean that you have to resign! Nor does it mean that you have to make all sorts of disclosures! This safeguarding  process also involves the administration and the other board members policing their own; in other words, if the administration or the other board members feel that one of their own is potentially exposed to a conflict of interest allegation, it is their responsibility to alert their colleague to the fact and to request that s/he not participate in the deliberations or decision in the matter. Simple, right?

What the toilet-stall genius Dirty-Hands Jerry doesn’t seem to get is that the law is referring to a business arrangement that is made by an agreement, oral or written, called a contract, and concerns compensation or payment for services rendered, and comprising the elements I listed above.

What’s Up, Jerry?

Business law 101, Dirty-Hands, stick to your own conflicts of interest (Deluca Public Affairs, Department of Environmental Conservation, ARANY, Main Street Small Business Coalition, Coeymans Police Department, the New York State Assembly, and that’s just for starters, if and only if Dirty-Hands is not lying on his published résumé) and stick to your intimidation and retaliation agendas; you’re much better at them than real law. Dorkus maximus!

(Hey! Jerry. What’s with the neurotic cud-chewing? You getting nervous or something? You were driving some people nuts with that obscene nervous cud- or gum- chewing at the meeting!)

Now, dear 34,000+ visitors, if you’re really interested in the inbreeding and conflicts of interest old Dirty-Hands Jerry knows best about, we suggest you have a look at the operations of the Village of Ravena, all departments, the Town of Coeymans, all departments but especially the Coeymans Police Department, the RCS central school district and its school staff (instructional and non-instructional) and there you’ll find plenty to squeal about! Talk about incest and inbreeding! And when you’re done there, follow the turd tracks to the Albany County Sheriff’s department, the Albany Police Department, and the Albany County District Attorney’s office. Have fun!
