Where’s the Beef, Biatch?!? And Where’s the Money, too?

Like This Is Business 101:
Document, Document, Document!
But Cathy Deluca and the Bottle Blitz Biatches
Seem to Have Attended the Same RCS Business Curriculum as the
RCS Sports Association.
In that Curriculum, They Just Don’t Keep Records and When Any Records Are Demanded, They Just Don’t Come Up With Them.

WHERE’S THE BEEF, BIATCH?
(And where’s the paperwork & money?)

UPDATE:  Selkirk, October 9, 2012. Since our having published this outcry, the Bottle Blitz group finally turned over a check allegegly representing the proceeds of the bottle and can collection since May 2012. It wasn’t much, considering the time and effort, but at least Public Opinion forced them to hand over the cash. Thank you! Readers!

We’d also like to know WHY??? …

  • the RCS school district is allowing the Bottle Blitz Biatches to use RCS school premises for collecting the bottles and cans;
  • the RCS school district is not charging or has not announced charging the Bottle Blitz Biatches for the use of the school facilities;
  • the RCS school district has not demanded that the Bottle Blitz Biatches produce any paperwork or statistics on the bottles and cans collected or even a receipt from the bottle and can processing facility where they say the bottles and cans are being processed;

Let’s Call A Spade A Spade!
What are they hiding?

But even more urgent is the question WHY? does the RCS school district allow the Bottle Blitz Biatches to continue to use the RCS school facilities and then has to chase after the Bottle Blitz Biatches to get them to turn over the proceeds?!?!?

And while all of this is going on, aren’t we paying an attorney to advise the RCS school district about these things? What is he doing? We think its obvious: NOTHING! We need to ask some serious questions about that, too!

And you know that their heads are way beyond rectal  when one Coeymanazi senile biatch is more worried about whether the graphics on this site are violating some obscure  copyright than what’s happening right under her porcine snout, and what’s happening to the children in this district. Silly sow!

RCS Needs To Manage Its Risk

Our Advice to the RCS school district and to the RCS board of education: Don’t accept another penny until you have all  the documentation in hand. When the cat hits the fan, you’ll all be accessories to the Coeymanazis’ crimes! (And for those among you who need to be spoon-fed everything: This also means that the Bottle Blitz Biatches are not allowed to use school facilities, without having submitted the paperwork in full!)

And back to the ongoing saga of the so-called RCS” Sports Association and the RCS cannibal coaches: We haven’t yet heard that the RCS Sports Association has complied with the RCS Central School District’s policy that they submit complete paperwork documenting their organization, their tax status, their tax filings, their non-profit status, etc. If this has happened–and it’s not very likely that it has–why hasn’t it been publicized so that the chapter can finally be closed on the issue?

But the RCS school district is still allowing the “RCS” Sports Association to operate a refreshments concession on school property! What’s going on, people? We know that law enforcement in Coeymans is selective but is the law in  the entire Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk district selective now? Do we have selective policies and procedures, now? Applies to some but not to others?

Our Advice to all the other organizations who are complying with the law, policies, and procedures and who are getting slapped in the face by the Bottle Blitz Biatches and the Sports Association with their lacky perv athletics coaches: File a Formal Written Complaint against the RCS district and follow up with a nice fat lawsuit to find out what’s going on. It seems that’s the only way things get done in this district!

But we do hope that at the next RCS board of education meeting, the board will finally put its foot down squarely on the necks of those who refuse to comply with the law, policy, and procedure, and enforce a new compliance policy that applies to everyone equally. Vadney, Lukens, Robbins and Sylvester are trying to raise this community out of the pigpen it’s fallen into–you people need to help them instead of throwing yourselves into the swill!

No disclosure, no favors and no access to public facilities. And NO EXCEPTIONS!

We’re Watching You!

Flash Updates: RCS Child Abuse and RCS Retaliation

Because the Issues are So Serious and the Conduct So Appalling, We Felt It Would Be Important to Publish Updates on Two Recent Reports: RCS Child Abuse and RCS Retaliation. Here Are Recent Updates Received from Our Readers.

Which Coach’s Pix Belongs Here?

And Cathy Deluca can Get Her Fitness Center While Saying, “To Hell With the Library! It’s Their Own Fault!” (Friends of RCS and More FaceBook Site) And Cathy Deluca and Her Coeymanazi Mob Can Crucify the Board of Education for Trying to Bring Law and Order to the RCS School District. But Cathy Deluca and Her Coeymanazi Cluck Buddies Are Blind to the Child Abuse and Stupidity of the RCS Coaches and Administration! But “It’s for the kids!” Right Cathy, Clucks, Coeymanazis?

Only in
Ravena-Coeymans!

RCS Students Refused Bus Transportation Home: We received confirming information about the incidents in which at least two students were refused bus transportation home from the high school. In the one instance the student was refused transportation because he allegedly did not have a bus pass, the transportation personnel were rude to the parent who called to find out about the bus pass requirement, and the mother had to pick up the student at the school. In the second reported incident, a special ed student attempted to get on the wrong bus, was left unaided, became confused, and walk approximately two miles on Rt 9w, to get home. Both instances amount to endangering a minor, indifference to the welfare of a minor, gross negligence, and incur the civil liability, in our opinion, of the RCS school district, especially in the case of the special ed student. We’d like Jennifer Houck, RCS Transportation Director, to stand up before the next RCS board of education meeting and explain why this sort of abuse is happening!

According to our sources:

The bus pass was something used at the highschool about two years ago for the 10th period bus.  Apparently the transportation brainiacs at bus garage wanted to start it back up again for the 10th period bus this year.  Apparently, on Tuesday, September 25, some students were boarding the bus with passes and some were not.  Busdrivers were told to let them on.  When the incident happened on Thursday, September 27, when the student was refused transportation, as we have learned from reliable sources, as the student’s mother was on the phone with Darcy Hunter, a dispatcher at the bus garage, the student’s father was on the phone with the high school main office and the spokesperson at the high school told him that the bus passes hadn’t been implemented yet.  To the best of out knowledge and as confirmed by reliable sources, the bus passes are going to be fully implemented on Monday Oct 1st.  We also have information from reliable sources that the the school transportation people at the RCS bus garage are trying to pull a fast one… We have learned that on Friday September 28, drivers were all (the memo was to ALL employees!) handed a notice dated on Sept 25 stating that “Thank you for your patience with the enrichment runs, please remember that ALL students are required to give you a pass to ride the bus with a legible first and last name on it.  (The schools are supporting us on this)”  We were given this notice on Friday Sept 28th and asked to sign and date that we received it. So apparently, the student was refused transportation for no good reason! The fact that the student is the child of a member of the RCS board of education wouldn’t have been a factor in this new incident of RCS child abuse, would it? We’d like Jennifer Houck, RCS Transportation Director, to stand up before the next RCS board of education meeting and explain why this sort of abuse is happening!

The facts relating to the special ed student having to walk home are much simpler: the bus drivers and aids behaved like idiots, and the school administration fell flat on its face AGAIN, failing in its duty to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the students in their care. We think the parents of the special ed student should file a Formal Written Complaint and make a claim against the RCS District for indifference to the safety and welfare of a child, gross negligence, endangerment of a minor, etc. After all, “It’s for the kids.”

Only card-holding members get home!
But you already paid the fare!

Retaliation Against the Children of An RCS Employee. We reported on the case of the mother who was employed by the RCS school district who made a complaint against one of the RCS athletics coaches for lewd and indecent behavior in the presence of minor players. Well, she made the complaint and as soon as she returned to her workplace, she was fired on the spot. The mother had a spotless employee record but also had some very bad experiences with the RCS athletics coaches mistreatment of her children, as have other parents. Well, not only have the coaches retaliated by refusing to play her sons–they’re great athletes and not playing them certainly doesn’t say much for the coaches’ coaching nor for their morals (Pretty sad when the child knows he isn’t being played because his mother has the guts to stand up to a**holes!  Will this EVER stop?  That’s a question we should all I can ask ourselves!)

But it gets worse, still…

One of this same mother’s boys was injured on September 29, in the game and the mother had to bring him to urgent care after the game, The varsity coach, Gary Vanderzee, took a look at him and called the mother over to tell her he thought it was a “broken blood vessel” and to bring him home and ice it for the weekend and see how he is on Monday.  Initial reports from the urgent care facility are, it’s a ruptured tendon in his bicep and they did x-rays to make sure that when the tendon tore from the bone it didn’t cause a bone fracture or a bone splinter; the doctors’ instructions are to see ortho a.s.a.p. to get an MRI. The diagnosis by the professionals was that he ruptured the tendon in his left bicep.

Coach Vanderzee: “It’s just a broken blood vessel.”

Our question is: Where and when did coach Gary Vanderzee get his medical degree? Vanderzee overstepped his boundaries by making an illegal medical diagnosis which might have resulted in serious consequences for the young man who was injured, had the mother not ignored Vanderzee’s advice to “ice it for the weekend and see how he is on Monday!” (There’s something on Vanderzee we’d like to put on ice!) The arrogance and stupidity of the RCS coaches went over the top on this one, and could have had very serious consequences. Coach Gary Vanderzee, in our opinion, should be summarily disciplined and suspended for making an illegal diagnosis, providing illegal medical advice, and for endangering a minor.

The part that’s really irks the parents now is I that they have YET to get a PHONE CALL from any coach, or anyone at the school that even fakes concern about the kid, or to at least see how their child is doing!  That’s the sum total of concern of the RCS athletics coaches. It would really make good sense for someone at the high school to express some sort of concern, after all, evidence-based studies have shown that in cases of medical malpractice, settlements and money awards were considerably lower when the physician expressed regret at the mistake or showed some compassion with regard to the patient or the family. Being human and having compassion has its rewards, but RCS coaches and administrators missed that point long ago. That’s why they’re classified as Coeymanazis–they have all the care and sense of responsibility for the kids that guards at Auschwitz had for the prisoners!

Perhaps Mr Ron Racey (he’s got some skeletons in his closet, too) would like to address the parents and the RCS board of education at their next meeting on the subject of coach Gary Vanderzee’s medical expertise. There must be a policy and procedure in place at the District Offices that covers student injuries while participating in school athletics programs and events. Maybe we should check that out, too!

Gee! Racey, Vanderzee, Perrine all muster up the testosterone to back up the illegal operations of the RCS Athletic Association; we wonder why they’re so silent on the abuse that’s been reported to have been going on for years in the RCS district. Any explanatins, Ron, Gary? Anyone? Not to worry! It’ll all come out in the depositions 😉

Yet they all claim “Its for the Kids.”

Our advice to the parents: File a formal written complaint against the varsity coaches, Vanderzee, and the school district! Better fix the situation now before they cripple or kill a kid! That will be “for the kids,” too!

How Long Are You Going To Stay Stupid?
“It’s for the kids!”

Still Outstanding Business

  • Has the RCS School District Received the Paperwork Demanded from the RCS Athletic Association? If not, why are they allowed to do business on school property?
  • Has the RCS School District received any payment from the RCS Bottle Blitz for the use of school premises for collection activities led by Cathy Deluca and Lorraine Misuraca? Or are they an exception to the rules, too?
  • On what authority and in compliance with which policy did Albany Boys Academy operate a concession stand on RCS high school property, and what portion of their profits were turned over to RCS?
  • Has anyone received a response from outgoing Superintendent Elizabeth “Do Nothing” Smith regarding the requests for the number of students from the town of New Baltimore attending RCS schools (must be a dozen times this has been requested!)?

Elizabeth “Betsy” R. Smith a.k.a. Superintendent Double-Talk

Mr James Latter Recently Informed the Community that The Superintendent of Schools ‘Does Not have to Answer Residents’ Questions.’

Well, Mr Latter, Although You Were Out of Order and Very Wrong to Have Written that, You’ll Be Pleased to Know that RCS Central School District Superintendent Elizabeth R. Smith Doesn’t Answer Residents’ Questions.

She Just Double-talks Them to Oblivion!

Well, That’s Being Too Fair, Actually, She’s Apparently Dyslexic … We’ve already Established That She’s Illiterate (see our article,  The RCS District RFP Is an Embarassment and a Sham!) but We Now Think She Has a Much More Serious Problem: Indifference!

But she did little when she was in the job, now she’s given her notice–after she’s padded her retirement checks with the $140,000 salary she’s ending with–and so she can wait it out another month or two, she’s a shorttimer now. She’ll leave the mess for the next crook who gets hired to the position.

We covered the illicit, delinquent, and illegal conduct of the RCS athletics coaches when they asked students to sell raffle tickets on behalf of the RCS Sports Association (see our article, Raffle, Anyone?). It was clear in that article that there was serious misconduct going on right under Brian Bailey’s and Elizabeth Smith’s noses!  We also published Superintendent Smith’s idiotic response (rather, refusal to respond) to that situation, as well in our article, No Response From District Office, Ms. Smith. It gets worse, still, because when we published our article on our suspicion of illegal money transactions at the National Bank of Coxsackie by the RCS Sports Association, there was still no action taken (see our article More Money Questions…Who’s Cashing the Checks?)

No Answers, Betsy?

So, even after all of that scandalous misconduct, we are still asking why the RCS district offices, the Superintendent, especially, and the Board of Education, too, have not addressed these concerns and put their foot down squarely on the culprits’ necks?!? We’re still asking WHO? is the RCS Sports Association, WHAT? are they doing having the coaches hand out raffle tickets to students to sell, and HOW MUCH? the RCS Bottle Blitz is paying to use school facilities!

We recently obtained a copy of a letter request addressed to Superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” R. Smith, dated September 11, 2012 and received at the District Offices on September 12, 2012, in which a concerned resident requests information regarding the action taken against the RCS athletics coaches who writes:


“Could you please advise me of the action taken with the coaches that told the students to sell raffle tickets? It is my understanding that this is illegal and the students again were placed in a situtation that gave them no recourse except to do what they were told for fear of reprisal. Also, who is collecting this money, and who and what will these funds be used for? Many community members are very concerned that inappropriate behavior on the part of our teachers/coaches continues and feel it is essential that administration take immediate, legal action against any and all staff who continue to disregard policy and law further damaging the welfare of the students as well as this district’s reputation.
[Name Redacted]


The letter is very clear in that the writer asks specific questions:

  1. What is the action taken with the coaches who unlawfully told students to sell raffle tickets?
  2. Who is collecting the money?
  3. For whom and for what will the funds be used?
  4. The question is also asked impliedly “What action the administration is going to take against any and all staff who disregard policy and law, endangering students and damaging the district’s reputation?”

The questions are pretty clear, aren’t they? You’d expect the Superintendent of schools to be able to read and understand such simple language, wouldn’t you? After all, it’s clear English, and it’s really quite clear and plainly stated, isn’t it?

But the question is nagging: Why doesn’t Superintendent Smith simply answer the questions? She simply refuses to answer our questions or those posed by residents! Why is that, we wonder!?! So, here’s your Superintendent of Schools, Ms Elizabeth “Betsy” R. Smith‘s “answer” to the resident’s written questions:


Thank you for your letter, which I opened today.  [Name Redacted] delivered it to me after our Building, Grounds and Transportation meeting yesterday.   All RCS coaches of fall sports were notified of the law restricting raffle ticket sales to adults 18 and over. 

“Community Organizations and Parent-Teacher Organizations may conduct fund raisers and raffles.  Those organizations can be contacted for information about their fund raisers.

Regards,
“Betsy”


Am I missing something, or what? “Thank you…[Name Redacted] delivered the letter…All RCS coaches…were notified of the law restricting raffle ticket sales to adults 18 and over.” What about the coaches distributing the tickets to students and telling them to sell them? Did you miss that Betsy? Didn’t you understand the question, Betsy? Need your eyes examined, Betsy?

Wot Duhn’t U Understand, Ms Smith?

“Community Organizations and Parent-Teacher Organizations may conduct fund raisers and raffles.” Duh! So what, Betsy? Who cares?
Those organizations can be contacted for information about their fund raisers.” What in hell are you blathering about, Betsy? Have you lost your mind? Who cares? Answer the damned questions, why don’t you?!?

So parents, residents, community members, on September 18, 2012, at the very next board of education meeting, we urge you to press Ms Smith for a more detailed, responsive answer to these questions we’ve raised in our article about the raffle ticket sales (see Raffle, Anyone?), Smith’s command of the English language, and the progress made in getting the required documentation from the RCS Sports Association that verifies their legality.

Who’s Cleaning Up the Money?

We will also be interested in parents, residents, taxpayers, and community members pressing Ms Smith and the Board of Education to know how much the RCS Bottle Blitz was charged for the use of the high school cafeteria on September 14th. As an outside program not affiliated with the RCS school district and not a registered organization of any kind, the RCS Bottle Blitz would be subject to hourly charges for the use of the school property, just like the community sports clubs are being charged. We need to know, How much? Who’s paying for opening and closing the building, the insurance, the utilities, the clean-up, etc.?

Superintendent Smith’s Legacy to the RCS Central School District
(+ A Couple of Lawsuits)

So, Superintendent Smith, we have just one last question for you: If YOU, the Superintendent of Schools for this RCS central school district, can’t read and comprehend simple English in a short letter asking very clear and concise questions for the purpose of answering them just as plainly and concisely, how do you intend to convince parents, taxpayers of this district that they are getting what they think they’re paying for.

Also, will you please now answer the questions the resident asked in the above letter. Thank you!

It’s Those Voices In James Latter’s and Elizabeth Smith’s Heads that Are Causing
All the Problems!

Dirty-Hands Jerry: “We don’t care…”

Dirty-Hands Jerrry Has Resurfaced and Arrogantly Thinks He’s the Spokesperson for the Entire RCS Central School District: “We don’t care what the other schools do!” Well, We Don’t Care What You Care About, Jerry, Either.

Dirty-Hands Jerry Don’t Care!

 According to Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, the RCS parents and residents shouldn’t care what other districts are doing. That profound bit of lunatic wisdom came during the public statement portion of the September 4, 2012, RCS board of education meeting, when Deluca made a cameo appearance after months of invisibility. Deluca was remarkably understated and gentle when he took the podium, even timid. We can only guess what the effects of his long withdrawal and quiet time might have been (was it imposed by the Ravena-Coeymans godfather, we wonder?). He was getting too mouthy and uppity, anyway. No one missed him or his bottle baglady partner Cathy Deluca  nor his lapdog R.J. D’Esposito. But school’s in session and they’re back so we might as well get used to it.

Damn! Just when the neighborhood started to look good again!

Deluca made the statement, apparently on behalf of the Coeymanazi mob, because all previous speakers were apalled at the article published in the Sunday Times Useless, “Big tab, mixed results. State’s per pupil cost is tops in U.S., but outcomes elusive” (S. Waldman, Sept 1, 2012) (Click here to read the entire article.)

The article reports per pupil expenses for some area school districts for the 2010-2011 school year (the most recent available). RCS is the highest cost per pupil of the entire group! Why is that?

  • Albany: $19,723
  • Ballston Spa: $16,248
  • Bethlehem: $17,026
  • East Greenbush: $17,980
  • Guilderland: $15,906
  • Niskayuna: $17,398
  • Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk: $21,011
  • Saratoga Springs: $14,760
  • Schenectady: $16,519
  • Shenendehowa: $15,014
  • South Colonie: $16,173
  • Troy: $19,792
  • Voorheesville: $18,176

But Dirty-Hands Jerry doesn’t think that’s significant because, Deluca wants us all to know that he’s there  “to remind people is that this school district does so  many good things for kids and wehn I hear people stand up and say we’re not Bethlehem or we’re not Balston Spa. No, we’re not. We’re RCS and we do very good things and we want to do the best we can for our kids. We don’t care what other schools do.”

Well, Mr Deluca, some of us do care what other districts are doing. We’re not into this isolation thing you seem to worship. We live in a world where we need to be aware of what’s going on around us. We need to compare and, by comparing, learn from others. We’re not as wise and all-knowing as you seem to think you are, Jerry. If this district is the most expensive out of some 13 districts surveyed, there’s really something wrong here. When Bethlehem and Ballston Spa and Albany can do it for less, there’s something really wrong in this district and we’d better hurry up and find out what it is. Any ideas, Jerry?

And we’d better care what the other districts are doing because the state and federal education authorities have a silly little thing they call comparisons. They tend to like to compare things, especially, school performances (and RCS’s performance, despite the hype, is pretty mediocre) costs per pupil, and they tend to ask some very sticky questions when things start to look a little odd, like in the RCS district. Didn’t you know that, Jerry? But you’re special, aren’t you? You don’t have to care. Well the rest of us do, Jerry, so Shut up and disappear, Jerry!

Jerry Deluca and his mob crammed the 2012-13 RCS school budget down your throats, now you’re seeing where that great advice got you all! What about all you Yes! voters who are now screaming bloody murder that you’re going to have to pay more to use school facilities? How do you all feel now that the teachers clique and the Deluca mob has led you down the rosey path to oblivion? Maybe now you’ll start listening to the real people, the business persons on the board of education and stop pointing the finger!

(Has anyone bothered to ask what the RCS school district is charging Cathy Deluca and her gang for the use of the school property for the so-called RCS Bottle Blitz? That’s not an official program of the RCS school district, either. The RCS Bottle Blitz is an entirely privately organized activity that has nothing to do with the RCS Central School District. So Cathy Deluca and Loraine Misuraca, you have to make a request, the request must be discussed by the BoE, and you have to pay for the use of the facilities. O.K.? Are you thinking about that, Superintentent Elizabeth R. Smith?)

Residents and Property Owners, You’d Better Start Asking Some Very Serious Questions Why the RCS CSD is Costing Property Owners more than $21,000 per pupil! There’s A Big Hole Somewhere and Your Money’s Leaking Into a Big Pit (a.k.a. a cesspool of corruption). (New Baltimore Residents had Better Start Doing Some Investigation, Too, Because You’re the Heaviest Taxed of Any of the RCS Locales! You need to consider why this is so when thinking about whether to re-elect your current town board mafia members. New Baltimore, you need to wake up, too! You’re being snookered.)

Jerry Deluca Doesn’t Care
The RCS CSD Is A Money Pit!

More Money Questions…Who’s Cashing the Checks?

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

Published in Time for the August 21 BoE Meeting!

It Seems that Organizations Without a Clear Legal Status and Without Having Submitted the Required Paperwork for Operating on Public School Property Are Collecting Money from the Parents of RCS Students and Continue Their Possibly Illegal Activities on Taxpayer Property

Is There A New Money
Laudromat in Ravena?

We now have some evidence that will help to track the money trail in the case of the RCS Sports Association, the so-called RCS Indians Football Camp, and the Duffle Bag Blitz. Seems that the allegedly unregistered RCS Sports Association or Athletics Association or whatever they’re calling themselves today are putting the money they collect into an account at National Bank of Coxsackie in Ravena. That’s interesting enough but the big Who? question still looms large in most residents’ minds. And how is it that a local state and federally regulated banking institution isn’t more careful with whom they deal and how they manage deposits?

Peter Smells It!
Why don’t YOU?!?

It’s been our experience that when you open a bank account you have to provide tons of identification and a social security number. If you’re an organization or a business, it’s even tougher, and most banks require a lot more information as well as verifications. So what’s going on when you’re claiming to be a non-profit organization, collecting money from parents of RCS students but despite demands from the RCS community and the RCS CSD Board of Education, have never produced your paperwork on your organization’s registrations, tax status, tax classification, your list of officers’ names, etc.? Has the bank asked for these and has the bank gotten the information? If so, why can’t the school district get it? And if the RCS Sports Association doesn’t produce it for the school district, what the hell are they doing collecting money from the parents of school students and operating a football camp on school property?

We’ve just received a copy of a check from a parent who is asking these and other questions. 

On July 26, 2012, the parent of an RCS student wrote a check in the amount of $75.00 to the RCS Sports Association for a “Football Camp.” The unendorsed check was deposited on August 10, 2012, to the order of the National Bank of Coxsackie (Ravena Branch) ID 021307054, “For Deposit Only INDIANS TEAM FOOTBALL CAMP” a/c 0307765966.

$75 Check for Football Camp

On April 5, 2012, that same parent wrote a check in the amount of $41.00 to the Indian Football Camp for a “Duffle Bag.” The unendorsed check was deposited on June 14, 2012, to the order of the National Bank of Coxsackie (Ravena Branch) ID 021307054, “For Deposit Only INDIANS TEAM FOOTBALL CAMP” a/c 0307765966.

$41.00 Check for Duffle Bag

So, here we have an RCS parent who so far has written checks in the amount of at least $116.00 to an organization calling itself the RCS Sports Association holding an account called the Indians Football Team Camp and using the RCS highschool sports teams’ moniker “Indians” to promote a football camp that operates on RCS school property, and even allegedly accepts participants (for payment, of course) from other districts, but no one seems to know who they are or how they are organized or operate. Worse still, they are associating themselves with the RCS school district but have not responded to the district’s or local residents’ demands to produce their financial records, their organization registration, the names of their officers, proof of insurance coverage and their tax information. Something’s really, really fishy here.

The RCS Sports Association, although not an official school organization, is taking plenty of advantage from what is known as “implied endorsement,” that is, making the false  impression that it is endorsed by the RCS Central School District by using the RCS initials and the “Indians” mascot name, when the RCS Sports Association is not endorsed by the school distict at all.

So, National Bank of Coxsackie, are you an accomplice, in complicity with this maverick organization? Are you shortcutting some serious banking policies and procedures regarding handling money from undocumented organizations? Or do you have the documentation, the same documentation that the RCS Sports Association has not provided on demand to the RCS Central School District  board of education?

Now, National Bank of Coxsackie, are you aware that the “old” RCS Sports Association has disbanded and that there’s a “new” RCS Sports Association? Or at least that’s what the public and the RCS board of education have allegedly been told. Do you, National Bank of Coxsackie, have the information relating to the “new” organization and, if you do, can you perhaps explain why the documents and information have not been disclosed on demand to the RCS CSD administration or to the board of education?

Have you, National Bank of Coxsackie seen any documents on organization registration, non-profit certificates, tax documents, etc.?

Who? National Bank of Coxsackie, is signing the RCS Sports Association checks? Who? National Bank of Coxsackie, is signing the Indians Football Team Camp checks? Don’t you think you’d better get some questions answered real quick, NBC? Now’s your chance.

$$$ Got money to launder? $$$

Now YOU, National Bank of Coxsackie, cannot say you didn’t know. Now YOU, National Banck of Coxsackie, will take a closer look at your depositor. Now, YOU, National Bank of Cosackie, will have to answer to you customers how and why this secrecy has persisted for so long. And thanks to one our readers and one of your customers, one of the brave new breed who’s sick and tired of the sheeple attitude, like so many others, and who’s decided to step out and and speak up, we now know where the money’s being laundered, if you’ll pardon a somewhat nuanced choice of words.

And RCS Sports Association, old or new, this would be a great time to come clean, produce your paperwork, your insurance polices, your tax records, your list of officers. We the public, the residents of this district, yeah, maybe even the National Bank of Coxsackie may be interested before they get audited, investigated, or prosecuted.

And all the parents who have been writing checks like these should be asking the same questions as we’re asking here.
We’ve asked the National Bank of Coxsackie in Coxsackie and Ravena what’s going on. Maybe you should, too!
