$46 Million Dollar School Budget Passed – One Backwoods School District

Voters a.k.a. “residents” approved a local RCS Central School District school budget of almost $46 million dollars. That’s more than the total budgets of several surrounding townships combined! Voters a.k.a. “residents” who passed the budget are largely non-property owners but the property owners foot the bill. What’s more, local government has caved to demands that local corporations get their tax breaks and reduced assessments. Again, local tax burden falls on the shoulders of local property owners. The local area is falling apart and so is the quality of education because we’re educating those who don’t have an appreciation for education and who likely don’t even use it later; they just don’t come from a background that encourages working or learning. So why do we keep spending and spending and spending? We don’t make the necessary adjustments, we just tax more and spend more. Why is that?

You’re still doing it! So we’re here to tell you how…

$45,829,423 budget for the 2017-18 school year!?! That’s more than local town budgets combined! And you wonder why your roads suck? You wonder why your drinking water is toxic and brown? You wonder why crime is rampant and the police do little or nothing to bring in the criminals? You wonder why you can’t make ends meet? But don’t you wonder why your kids act like brain dead morons? Why they can’t read? Why they can’t spell? Why they can’t hold a discussion?

Has anyone ever asked the students — the one’s with the lights on and someone home in their heads — what they think of their education, of their teachers? Times Union, News Herald, Daily News, W10, W13? Has any of the media given a thought to ask students about what they think of their education? Well, it would have to be cleverly done — and that rules out Times Union, News Herald, Johnson Newspaper Group, Daily News, W10 and W13, practically all Capital District media — and it would ideally include past graduates, who would be more likely to be truthful and say where RCS education got them. Current students would be fearful of teacher or student retaliation if they were to be interviewed and identified. That’s the way it has been and continues to be in the RCS Central School District, and is very likely the same situation throughout this third-world, backwoods hole in the earth. (Great place for woodchucks, though.)

We did an informal survey and found that several past graduates agreed that “one in fifteen teachers was any good and cared for students.” Others simply hated RCS and refused to participate even in 10 year class reunions. One RCS teacher with 23 years teaching said that he couldn’t wait to retire, “They have millions for astroturf but no money for books for my AP students! I’m history as soon as I can retire.” A history of pitiful graduation rates, low student and teacher morale, and spending seem to characterize local schools, especially spendthrift RCS.

Why don’t we ask the one’s who know?

If past history is anything to judge by, we have a pattern of fewer property owners (those who pay) and a growing number of social service recipients, senior citizens (those who can’t afford to leave), and transients (those who don’t pay), as well as a decline in taxable businesses, and an increase in pandering to local large corporations (who get “corporate welfare”) who want and get tax breaks but don’t create jobs and don’t contribute to tax revenues. So the misinformation provided by propaganda machines like the Times Union, News Herald, and other local media, flash such titles as “School budgets sail to approval”(Times Union, May 19, 2016) reporting also that “districts were mostly able to avoid huge tax hikes in their 2016-17 budgets thanks to a large increase in state aid.” Really? If that’s last year’s situation, why the increase this year?

The previous year, the Times Union article, “Voters Happy With Budgets” (May 19, 2015) reports that “Voter turnout was typically slim with many school board candidates running unopposed. Albany saw 72 percent of voters who showed up to vote offer support for the school budget. In 2015 Albany passed a $234 million budget that carried no tax increase. Schenectady passed a $177 million budget that will actually decrease the tax levy 0.21 percent. The report goes on to say that “on average, Capital Region schools are prepared to spend and tax more than other districts around the state. Spending is poised to rise 2.87 percent at schools across the region next year (compared to 2.1 percent statewide), while tax levies will increase an average of 0.95 percent (compared to 0.7 percent statewide). That was 2015.

The pattern continues in RCS. 2017-18 budget passed by voters Residents of Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk took to the polls Tuesday, May 16, approving a $45.8 million budget for the 2017-18 school year, as well as the bus purchase proposition and community library vote. Voter turnout was typically slim (less than 1000 voters, down from previous years) with school board candidates running unopposed.

The local school district got approval to purchase school buses for the year ahead and create additional teaching positions. New technology purchases, like Chromebooks and iPads, were also high on the budgets, as well as a bigger investment in professional development for teachers. More technology, less learning, more cyberkids and sheeple. What a plan for Big Brother!

Local politicians, including the RCS School Board, are like maggots eating us alive.

Corporate Welfare. Lowered assessment for Selkirk Cogen to affect RCS homeowners (May 5, 2017). The RCS Central School District website reports: “One noticeable difference for taxpayers will be increased tax rates for the 2017-18 year, due to a lowered tax assessment for local business Selkirk Cogen. The district does not control home or business assessments, however, taxes collected from those [private] assessments act as revenue for the district.” This is purest propaganda. These businesses come to this area, destroy our historically beautiful landscapes, poison our air and our water, demand tax breaks at the expense of property owners and small business, drive out local residents and businesses, shift the tax burden to local property owners. They promise prosperity and jobs, which our local hillbilly elected officials gobble up like hungry hogs, and don’t deliver. In fact, the trend is to automate operations, leaving the really dirty jobs to low-paid black-collar workers. Now that’s a real vision for the future. Our economic geniuses hard at work for the corporations, while burying us!

According to a RCS school board member : “As a district, we have no control over assessments,” school board member James Latter said. “it’s unfortunate the reduced assessment has an effect on our resident taxpayers, we are thankful for businesses like Selkirk Cogen. It’s businesses like these that often pay large sums of school taxes, taking some of the burden off our residents.” Contradiction here, Mr Latter? Read that quote again! He’s double-talking. And that’s the kind of dumbass RCS voters put on the school board! 

That kind of pass-the-buck double talk is characteristic of weasel Jim Latter, who is an employee of a Saudi-owned corporation in Feura Bush, so we know where his loyalties lie. He’s not going to be honest and tell it like it is: He’s going to spend, spend, spend and then blame the tax hikes on the local town administrations! Of course he’s thankful to Cogen and to his Saudi keepers, they sign his checks.  But it’s his talking out of both sides of his mouth that irks us most. You see, they preach austerity and fiscal responsibility but they don’t practice what they preach.

We’d like to know where the money came from for the sports field refreshment stand that is not used for 6-8 months of the year? The RCS Sports Association was to have paid for it but they couldn’t raise the money. Anybody hear where the rest of the money came from? Anyone care to guess? We all know. But the question is still: If we have so many youth sports associations and groups in the area, why does the school district have to have million dollar playing fields. Is the RCS community that rich? We know it’s falling apart and dirty. We know that our elected swine are handing our community to killer trucks, heavy truck traffic, dust devils, and our roads are tuning into mini-Grand Canyons. We know our students are coming out of RCS schools stupid. We know that there’s money for jocks but no money for books and brain programs. We know the teachers are getting paid very well, get incredible benefits and get paid professional enhancements. We know that 75-80% of the budget goes to salaries and benefits. What else do you know but won’t admit?


Heres a contribution from one of our readers that should get you thinking:

I was working out at the Glenmont Planet Fitness when a group of about 4-6 boys gathered around one of the equipment. One was on the phone and talking to “his brother”. When he had finished he asked the others whether they knew anyone who would “buy” for them. As the conversation went on it became clear that they needed alcohol for a group or a party that was going to happen in connection with the prom. They brainstormed for a little and made some calls, and then, apparently the problem was solved. Someone, one of the boys brothers, would make the purchase. These guys were obviously still in school at RCS and planning a party after the senior prom. They needed booze and found it. I wanted to give them a good talking to but the way they were acting, it would only have caused a scene and embarassed me. They were too ignorant to care, and their language didn’t make me think they had any brains.

I thought about one of the blogs recent articles about the accident on 144 when Logan Penzabene was creamed and his buddy seriously injured. I remember the quotes from local law enforcement, and then there’s Cuomo’s campaign. I lthought how right you were in that article. Then I saw this one and everything got clear. It’s all smoke and mirrors around here.

Not two weeks after a fatal accident and these knuckleheads are looking for alcohol. What? Isn’t the prom enough? I guess they’re so insecure they have to drink. So where are the parents? Do these kids still have parents? Do they know it? What’s up with all this law enforcement effort to curb these teen morons and their childish behavior? Where’s the school district and the teachers on this one? Where’s Cuomo’s campaign. They’re at Planet Fitness arranging for a booze delivery! I couldn’t believe my ears!


Well, there you have it, “Not two weeks after a fatal accident and these knuckleheads are looking for alcohol. ” Maybe the RCS school district can get a discount on the grief counseling they provide after the fact. Is that in the budget? Plenty of money to spend but none to spend wisely.

Less than 1 in 5 persons in Coeymans eligible to vote actually voted in the budget vote! And they weren’t property owners voting for a tax increase, we know that for sure!

Coeymans has a population of about 7500 persons with 13% over 65 years of age. In 2010 there were approximately 3000 housing units in Coeymans, of which 70% were owner occupied (the tax base). 91% of residents 25 years old or older are high-school graduates but only 1 in 5 has a bachelor’s degree (they graduated high school but either couldn’t get into a 4-year college or didn’t try)! Of those employed, they travel an average of 26 minutes to work (Obviously they don’t work locally. Where would they work?) Half of the population earns less than $55,500 a year, and there’s a 10% poverty rate. About one quarter of Coeymans residents is under 18 years of age; 13% are over 65 years old. OK. Let’s do some old-fashioned math: 25% of Coeymans are under 18 so they can’t vote. That leaves 75% of Coeymans residents who can vote, or 5,675 eligible voters. Let’s say, just for argument’s sake, that only 5000 are legally registered and can actually vote. The numbers for the budget vote show only about 900 total votes were cast on May 16, 2017. that means that less than 1 in 5 eligible voters actually voted (This is probably less, considering that parts of New Baltimore in Greene County could participate in the voting!). This is even more alarming because if we can believe the US census data, 70% of the some 3000 housing units in the town of Coeymans are owner occupied, meaning that they are property owners and foot the tax bill. That’s about 2,100 voters, at least, who should have showed up to vote on the budget! How many property owners do you know who would vote for a tax increase? So you can guess who the majority of the about 600 votes were, who voted for the budget and the tax increase, can’t you? Piss poor performance in our opinion! Are you proud of yourselves, Coeymanites.

“The impact of the reduced assessment will be reflected in September 2017 tax bills when residents will likely see an estimated tax rate increase between 4.5 and 6.5 percent (based on 2016 tax assessment figures), depending on town of residency.

Local Corporations Get Tax Breaks; Property Owners Get a Tax Increase; Teachers Get Increases in Perks and Benefits; Students look forward to a lousy education; We all Get Shoddy Government by Incompetent Ego-maniacs; Our Roads Get Worse (Our idiot highway departments fill in potholes with sand today, pothole’s back tomorrow). The budget calls for an increase in total spending of 2.6 percent from the 2016-17 school year and a tax levy increase of 1.25 percent, which equals the district’s limit based on the state’s tax levy cap calculation. Translation: for a home valued at $150,000 with no STAR exemption this would lead to a projected tax increase of $195 for Bethlehem residents, $116 for Coeymans residents, $117 for New Scotland residents, and $153 for New Baltimore residents. Here’s what you get for your tax increaase:

  • Local Corporations Get Tax Breaks
  • Tax burden shifts to property owners and small businesses
  • Property Owners Get a Tax Increase
  • Teachers Get Increases in Perks and Benefits
  • Students look forward to a lousy education
  • We all Get Shoddy Government by Incompetent Ego-maniacs
  • Our Roads Get Worse (Our idiot highway departments fill in potholes with sand today, pothole’s back tomorrow)
  • You get less in the package for more in the manufacturer’s pocket (Do you ever read the labels of your coffee containers?)
  • Welfare recipients get their cell phones, transportation, manicures, healthcare for free (Are you going to work today? Second job? Third job?)

Voters turned out in very low numbers, again. Even more alarming is that — even with the low turnout– there seems to be a bizarre pattern in the voting this year (similar to past years) With with the budget receiving 538 in favor and 294, the bus proposition 537 yes and 289 no; The RCS Community Library budget showed the same pattern of 593 in favor and 297. (RCS Central School District webpage, 2017-18 budget passed by voters, last accessed on May 17, 2017). Even more bizarre is that several of the local news reports repeat each other’s stories almost word for word!

The only good news coming out of this year’s budget vote was that the RCS Community Library vote passed with 593 in favor and 297 opposed. Residents also re-elected two candidates to the library board of trustees. Bravo! RCS Community Library! 

The only ones with half a brain appear to be the baby-boomers and they’re quickly disappearing from the area, leaving outright, or just dying. It appears anyone born after 1980 is a product of the materialist consumerism that haunts us today. Those born in and after the 1990’s are a total loss to their anxieties and greed. After 2000, they are either chemical or electronic addicts; orphans, really, and unable to articulate a sentence or even make change at the counter, even when the amount of change is displayed on a screen.

Your school tax dollars at work. Thank you.

We Sure Can Pick’m! We did it again!

For those of you who still are not convinced that our local communities want the TRUTH and have an appetite for correct information, we provide that right here on this blog. We provided true factual information that local residents and voters needed to make the wise choices in local government. And that’s exactly what New Baltimore voters did: They voted with their heads and made some BIG CHANGES. Ousted two long-term do-nothing fixtures and brought in new blood!

We Published our Picks for the 2015 Local Elections and GUESS WHAT?

WE DID IT AGAIN!

Special recognition goes to Alan VanWormer who ousted Denis Jordan for New Baltimore Superintendent of Highways!

Jordan was the incumbent and we all know how hard it is to get rid of an incumbent. But Jordan got too cocky and overconfident in the past couple of years. He apparently thought that he could buy enough votes with favors that he was a Rock of Gibraltar, a permanent fixture until he, Jordan, decided he wanted out. Well, New Baltimore voters made the choice for him. Alan VanWormer, 25 years with the New Baltimore Highway Department, will now take over where Jordan takes off. There’s a lot to be done and a lot of it is real clean-up but we think VanWormer can do it. But only if he has his finger on the pulse of the community and works closely with the New Baltimore town board. He’s made those commitments, now let’s see if he can man up and follow through. We’ll be watching every step — or trip — of the way. Good Luck! Mr Superintendent VanWormer!

Nick Delisanti was a no-brainer when it came to comparing him with Arthur Fullerton!

In terms of numbers, Delisanti creamed Fullerton and rightly so. Fullerton, a dumbocrap sockpuppet, had his head up his arse as far as the issues went. He also has a love affair with Arthur Fullerton and is an egomaniac. Fullerton thought he could take the supervisor’s office simply on ego. Well, voters in New Baltimore kicked ole king Arthur down a couple of notches; sent Fullerton scurrying with his scary tail between his legs. Mr Delisanti did very well in his first two years as New Baltimore town supervisor and we expect much, much more from him in the next two years. Voters gave him a new bunch of people this elections and if Delisanti doesn’t use that capital wisely, we’ll be there to let you know.

Pat Linger handed Jim VanSlyke his walking papers, too. VanSlyke has been a county legislator for several terms but made the big mistake of making a little statement that sent a HUGE message to voters. In effect, VanSlyke let it slip that he puts his discretionary funds where he can buy the most votes. We caught that one and made hay with it; New Baltimore voters made change with it. Mr Linger now has our ear and we’ll be listening very closely. In the meantime, we wish him well in the Greene County Legislature.

That’s YOU, Coeymans!

Coeymorons Re-Elect Dithering Tom Dolan and Put Cemetery Manager Rick Touchette in the County Legislature!

We don’t spend much time in the sewerage capital of the world, Ravena-Coeymans, so we aren’t infected with the apathy virus most Ravena-Coeymans voters seem to have. That may be why we really sucked in our predictions for Ravena-Coeymans. But HEY! we can’t expect the whole world to be reasonable, logical, and honest! So we win a few and lose a few. Unlike Ravena-Coeymans who are TOTAL LOSERS!

Coeymans Loves Its Crooks, Cronies, and Crazies Coeymans voters apparently have no sense, much less morals, they've elected almost to the man Touchette, Dolan, Youmans, all scoundrels and involved in multiple scandals. Ravena-Coeymans had the information but they like their crooks!

Coeymans Loves Its Crooks, Cronies, and Crazies

Coeymans voters apparently have no sense, much less morals, they’ve elected almost to the man Touchette, Dolan, Youmans, all scoundrels and involved in multiple scandals. Ravena-Coeymans had the information but they like their crooks! Unbelievable!!!

[Editor’s Note: We are really reconsidering why we even bother writing about Ravena-Coeymans. It’s a lost cause. So far gone it’s terminal. There’s just no hope for a community that has allowed itself to decline to the extent that Ravena-Coeymans has done. We really can’t do much for them. They made their choices.]

Matt-the-Mutt Joins the Losers’ Club!

Matthew J. “Matt” Miller, double-dipping crook, corrupt atheist school teacher in the RCS central school district, had his beady eyes on an Albany County Legislature seat for District 36. Some voters got smart and decided he was too risky, too corrupt, too beholding to his union keepers and he didn’t get the votes he needed to unseat Mr Mendick. Good for you, Mendick! You beat the slimebag!

Ravena-Coeymans voters make the choice to remain the Anus of the World and re-elect a corrupt court jester, Dithering Tom Dolan,  to the town council and a cemetery manager, R. Touchette, to the Albany county legislature. Both Dolan and Touchette were involved in the scandal involved in the Phil Crandal involving the judge doing special favors for Touchette and Dolan. Seems Coeymans likes its corruption and crooks, and likes to keep them in town and county government. After all what else is there in Ravena-Coeymans?

You can’t make a silk purse out of a pig’s ear. Coeymans proves that.

Ravena-Coeymans women couldn’t even get their act together and put a woman, Stephanie Hamilton, on the town of Coeymans town board. Now that’s a sorry shame! They put Dithering-Tom Dolan, the great ghetto grabber, the same guy who gets votes for benefits back where he can make an ass of himself, the dumbocrap party, and the town of Coeymans! Go figure, people!

Preliminary numbers would indicate that the town of Coeymans voters like the taste of shite in their mouths. Well, after you eat enough crap, you apparently start to like the nutty flavor. Corruption and stupidity are close relatives: Corruption thrives on stupids. One of our first articles three years ago depicted Coeymans as a nest of hypocrisy. Nothing has changed.

The only thing going for Coeymans right now is the fact that Stephen Flach may still be in office; we say “may” because Coeymans is stupid enough to have possibly elected his dishonor Phil Crandall to be supervisor. That would make sense for Coeymans but not the rest of the sane world.

Let’s face the pitiful fact that the Albany Dumbocrap Political Machine, the Give-it-all-Away Party, is so entrenched with the poverty, the apathy, the race-card, the economic disasters that they attract the lowest-of-the-low votes, but there are plenty of them to buy; any local low-life who wants a handout, or who is a values-less liberal (like Joan (“Cut’n-Paste Joan“) & Robbie (“Twitch the Cryptkeeper“) and their ilk, will prostitute their right to vote and vote dumbocrap. That’s a lot of votes in Albany County!

THE ALBANY COUNTY BOARD OF ELECTIONS IS DRAGGING THEIR FEET AS USUAL. PROBABLY NEED MORE TIME TO FIX THE VOTES. WE’LL PUBLISH THE RESULTS AS SOON AS WE GET THEM!

Go Figure! The Editor

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Moose balls? More like mouse balls!

Moose balls? More like mouse balls!

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

It’s Got to be a Joke!

braindead

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

Did RCS CSD Superintendent Alan McCartney Plagiarize 2014 Grad Speech?

Amid a small flurry of FaceBook exchanges it appears some parents believe that Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District interim Superintendent, Alan R. McCartney, may have plagiarized all or part of his RCS Class of 2014 commencement speech. Some even suggest that the 2014 graduation speech is substantially a repeat of McCarney’s 2013 graduation speech; that would mean that this is the second incident of plagiarism by the superintendent with an already stormy and shady past. What will the school district parents do? What will his special-interest-loaded board of education do? What will the Commissioner of Education do?

RCS CSD Superintendent McCartney Steals Yoda’s Laurels!

RCS CSD Superintendent Alan R. McCartney Receives an Very Generous Salary from the Taxpayers of this District. Wouldn’t you think he’d take the time to at least write an original graduation speech to send off the new graduates? Do RCS graduates now have to deal with the stigma of having their superintendent steal his material for their rites of passage into the adult world? There’s an old saying that the “Fish rots from the head down.” We re-live that saying every day in the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School Districts, don’t we?

Plagiarism_2

What is plagiarism? Plagiarism is defined as “To take and use as one’s own the thoughts, writings or inventions of another” (Oxford English Dictionary). Plagiarism therefore has two elements: (1) taking another’s work and (2)using the work as your own.

Several local residents have asked McCartney’s office for any recordings of the suspect speech and we have made a direct request to McCartney himself, putting a deadline for his response at close-of-business on July 3, 2014. The McCartney speech, it is alleged, used material from a speech published by one Jonathan E. Martin entitled “Yoda’s Teachings.” A parent attending the Class of 2014 graduation event felt there was something odd about McCartney’s speech and investigated further (see the extract from the parent’s FaceBook post on RCS Friends and More). In response to Mr Perrotte’s observations and conclusions other parents chimed in with their comments.

We have demanded a response from Mr McCartney and have notified all members of the RCS CSD board of education. We want this clarified NOW! Here’s what we wrote (Susan Starr is the clerk of the RCS CSD; McCartney’s e-mail address is not published):

Dear Ms Starr:
Please advise Mr McCartney urgently of this matter.
We urge you to respond immediately with any recordings of Mr McCartney’s 2014 graduation speech. It seems that a number of parents have expressed the concern that Mr McCartney may have purloined all or a substantial part of his graduation speech from an Internet source on the same subject, Yoda.
Unless we receive Mr McCartney’s explicit and express denial of such plagiarism together with a copy of any recording of the actual speech delivered at the 2014 RCS graduation event by no later than close of business (5 p.m. EST), we intend to publish the allegations and to prosecute Mr McCartney’s resignation.
Our interim publication of the allegations will note that we have made this demand; our final publication will reflect your response to this demand.
Please confirm receipt of this communication.
Assuring you of our best intentions,
 
The Editor
Smalbany Blog

We’d like to clear this up once and for all but to do that we need Mr McCarntney to either deny the allegations and to provide a recording of the speech he delivered at the RCS Class of 2014 graduation event OR to show convincing evidence that he gave credits for the allegedly purloined material used in his speech. We’d also like to remind our readers that such conduct by a person in McCartney’s position has resulted in resignation by the school official.

This is a preliminary report of the facts as of 10 a.m. on July 3, 2014. This report will be updated as we receive more information. If you have any information or a recording of the McCarney speech delivered on June 28, 2014, on the occasion of the RCS Class of 2014 graduation, please provide a copy to rcs.confidential@gmail.com as soon as possible.

New Baltimore: Taxed but not represented!

Pull It Out, New Baltimore!

Pull It Out, New Baltimore!

On May 20th, 2014, Voters will go to the polls to vote for three RCS CSD board of education members and to hopefully disapprove the bloated $42 million, at least 75% of which goes to pay outrageous salaries for incompetent services and teachers who ensure that the kids are duds and the RCS schools continue to be known far and wide as failing schools.

nysut pig

New Baltimore Needs to Vote Overwhelmingly for Rodney Kryzkowsky in Protest and NO! to the $42 million RCS CSD School Budget!!!

Here’s why:

  • A good portion of New Baltimore’s school taxes are going out of Greene County to pay for the RCS Central School District’s waste and favoritism.

  • New Baltimore has no representation on the RCS Central School District board of education (for that matter neither does the majority of Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk residents).

  • The RCS CSD is owned and operated by a group of insiders, who are owned and operated by the New York State United Teachers union.

  • RCS Central School District schools are commonly known as “failing” schools and the composition of the administration, teaching staff, and the board of education makes certain that that reputation is going to last.

  • New Baltimore has to wake up and get smart: New Baltimore has to get out of the quagmire of the RCS CSD district and get into the Coxsackie system, in our own Greene County. Ravena-Coeymans is a failing, dying, corrupt and confused bunch of lunatics with no vision and a love affair with toxic waste, no environmental sensitivity, and voodoo economics. No change in corruption—only the faces change.

  • On May 20th cast your protest vote against the three teachers union stooges McFerretHotalingJones and FOR RODNEY KRZYKOWSKI, the only honest one on the RCS CSD board of education and the only one who has the courage to represent his convictions and refuse to join the gang of cowards.

  • Vote NO! on the RCS CSD $42 million budget that makes no sense and continues a practice of lies, misinformation, and spending.

  • Climb on the backs of the New Baltimore town board and force them to take steps to remove New Baltimore’s kids from the failing RCS CSD schools and get them into our own Greene County, Coxsackie system where they belong.

Pull it out, New Baltimore!

Pull it out, New Baltimore!

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!

Coeymanazis Use Gestapo Tactics at RCS Schools

Coeymans Police Are Going Too Far: Students Report Their Lockers Being Searched By Police Using Dogs While Students are In Class!

lacey-searchParents allowing their kids to be victimized in this manner is sending a clear and unmistakable message to our young people: We don’t trust you! We can’t control you! You can’t be trusted! We’ll let law enforcement intimidate and harass you while we have some time for ourselves! We had fun making you but now we need to have some time on our own. Sure, we’ll let the Coeymanazis baby sit. Why not?

POLICE STATE GOES TO RCS SCHOOLS

Superintendent Allen McCarney is obviously in league and working with or for the Albany County District Attorney, Pudenda David Soares or some other moron in the Albany County DA’s office and local police in planning the search. McCartney is turning into a real company boy now that he’s in the pockets of the teacher-union-owned-and-taxpayer-paid-for RCS CSD board of education.

WHAT'S NEXT, MCCARTNEY, DARLINGTON?!?! is your next trick feeding the kids to the dogs?

WHAT’S NEXT, MCCARTNEY, DARLINGTON?!?!
Is your next trick feeding the kids to the dogs?

Of course, McCartney and his NYSUT and Coeymanazi keepers would tell us that they don’t not see the search as a violation of Fourth Amendment constitutional rights protecting citizens against unlawful or unreasonable searches. Of course, in our drug-ridden, Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirt ghetto schools the searches are to protect the students from themselves and the many drug dealers in a and around the RCS high-school, and to staunch the epidemic of drug-overdose deaths that have been occurring in Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk schools. Of course the searches are not animposition and in fact, the students, teachers and parents welcomed law enforcement efforts to harass and intimidate the students. Must make the Coeymanazis feel real good to give the rest of the world the impression our schools are packed with drug pushers and drug users. Makes the Coeymanazi p.d. really look good now, doesn’t it?

This, dear readers, is another cowardly and scandalous attempt by the Coeymans police department and their Nazi friends to harass and intimidate the local community through the students. How dare they go into our schools with police and dogs and execute searches. Where are you parents, anyway? Do the students have to take matters into their own hands to get justice and fairness and not continue to be treated like inmates instead of young adults?

First it was putting a Coeymans police officer who turned out to be the school harlot after a short time, carousing with a wrestling coach and causing a break-up of the coach and his girlfriend. That same RSO officer ended up copping a DUI. Of course, nobody in the RCS CSD Administration foresaw the potential for the female police officer to give every male student an erection but the wrestling coach got her first, we think. But on school property, in his office. Well, that’s the rumor around the school.

So, what’s the deal McCartney, RCS CSD school board a.k.a. New York State United Teachers board at RCS? Find anything you liked?

Intimidation of Students Now Makes Better Zombies for Tomorrow

OR

How to make the kids like the parents

dog and lockersIn an article printed in the Times Union, “Supreme Court: Drug dog sniff is unconstitutional search” (by Jesse J. Hollan of the Associated Press (AP), Tuesday, March 26, 2013) the author writes:

“The Supreme Court ruled…that police cannot bring drug-sniffing police dogs onto a suspect’s property to look for evidence without first getting a warrant for a search, a decision which may limit how investigators use dogs’ sensitive noses to search out drugs, explosives and other items hidden from human sight, sound and smell.
Justice Antonin Scalia said a person has the Fourth Amendment right to be free from the government’s gaze inside their home and in the area surrounding it, which is called the curtilage.”

Shouldn’t our students and schools enjoy these same constitutional rights? Shouldn’t a warrant be required based on good solid probable cause that a search is necessary? Maybe, but not in Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk, where the US Constitution has been suspended and is not applicable to residents and citizens in Ravena-Coeymans Selkirk!

If this happend anywhere else, somewhere where the residents aren’t pussy-whipped by local Coeymanazis, all hell would have broken loose. And it has happened elsewhere and all hell did break loose (hence the Supreme Court decision). But not here in RCS! Anyone care to speculate why we bend over and ask for the joy stick?

These bobo-crime stoppers are real heros; they go after cripples, old ladies and kids. Balless wonders that they are! At a cost of more than $1 million a year to Coeymans taxpayers, we think that money should be spent more responsibly. Don’t you? Eliminate the Coeymans Police department and all of the dingbat vampires hiding there!

We also have received reports that Coeymans polic e officer and RCS CSD RSO Danielle Crosier, you know the Coeymanazi who wrecks patrol cars, can’t pick a lane and stay in it, DUI/DWI copette, the one who’s allegedly carrying on with the RCS wresting coach in his office (she’s apparently not getting enough down at the station). Yeah, the same Danielle Crosier who is pulling kids out of the halls and searching them at the school. Here we have the hot-to-trot harlot, the Coeymanazi p.d.’s kitten in uniform, demonstrating firsthand how a police state operates and what it feels like to be publicly humiliated for nothing. She’s also the Coeymanazi p.d.’s example of morality, too. Yes, RCS parents, that’s the word on the street and in the halls of RCS about your fine RSO and your fine Coeymanazi p.d. What do you have to say about that? Want an investigation? An investigation will either get her fired or jailed (depending on who’s she doing and where), will get the wrestling coach fired, or an investigation will clear both. We think an investigation is the way to go. Don’t you?

We are expecting updated information and documents and will post the updates as soon as we receive them.

Why try to make a turd shine? This won't work on Jerry, no matter how hard the Ravena News Herald tries!

Why try to make a turd shine?
This won’t work on Jerry, no matter how hard the Ravena News Herald tries!

The Ravena News Herald Does it Again!
Bryan Rowzee, local kiss-ass scriptwriter for the Ravena News Herald, manages to make shite shine in his recent front-page article “Retiring veteran officer DeLuca looks back on 32 years on the force.”

We are still having humongous problems with Dirty-Hands Jerry’s claim to have been on the Coeymans police force for 32 years. Our concerns—NO! Our suspicions—are based on Deluca’s published résumé on LinkedIn (which appears to have been recently updated), and simple math. We’re also wondering about Deluca’s ability to be in so many places at the same time and doing so many things in a limited period of time, while still being an active member of a law enforcement entity.

And sock-puppet Bryan Rowzee doesn’t account for the gap in Deluca’s law-enforcement career that was allegedly at least 2-4 years, when—you all remember this—then police chief Scott Giroux cleaned up the Coeymans police department by firing Deluca and several others. Deluca was later re-hired—and we question the legality of that rehire in terms of civil service law—by his buddy Gregory Darlington, when the mistake was made by then Coeymans town supervisor Ron Houghtaling to put Darlington in the police chief’s office.

And why doesn’t Bryan Rowzee of the Ravena News Herald pick up on Deluca’s many claims of employment with so many other employers? Would that perk up the community’s ears and raise some eyebrows regarding the legitimacy of Deluca’s claim to be “looking back 32 years on the force”?  

Here’s what Deluca puts on his online résumé (or have a look for yourself. Just click here: Deluca’s LinkedIn Résumé):

In the “Summary” Deluca writes:

“I have 30 years experience working with and for the NYS Legislature and Government.
I have also been a police officer for the Town of Coeymans since 1982
Specialties:Legislative and Transportation Issues”

Wow! Jerry! How did Rowzee miss the 30 years “working with and for the NYS Legislature and Government” part that apparently ran concurrently with the claimed 32 years on the Coeymans police force? And how did Rowzee miss Deluca’s claim to be a specialist in “Legislative and Transportation Issues”? How did we in the community miss these “brilliant” credentials in a man making barely $31,000 as an investigator on the Coeymans police force (source: SeeThroughNY, 2013 Salaries)!

That’s not all. Deluca then goes on to write about his “Experience,” and this is where it gets really interesting—OOPS! Did we write “interesting,” we meant suspicious:

Proprietor
DeLuca Public Affairs
October 2005 – Present (8 years 5 months)
DeLuca Public Affairs is a firm specializing in Government Relations and Association Management

Director
Main Street Small Business Coalition
September 2005 – Present (8 years 6 months)

Investigator
Town of Coeymans Police Department
February 1982 – Present (32 years 1 month) (This is how we know Deluca updated this résumé)

Director
MSSBC
January 2009 – December 2012 (4 years)
As Executive Director of the ARANY, I served as one o the Directors of the Main Street Small Business
Coalition.

Executive Director
ARANY
September 2005 – December 2012 (7 years 4 months)
ARANY is a statewide trade association representing the Auto Dismantling Industry in New York State.
The ARANY contracted with DeLuca Public Affairs for me to serve as their Executive Director and
Lobbyist. During that time I oversaw all operations of the association, including working with the board,
managing a statewide trade show, financial management and serving on and Chairing committees for
the national association

Legislative Associate
New York State Assembly
1980 – 1993 (13 years)
[Editor’s Note: In response to our inquiries, the NYS Assembly has no knowledge of Deluca or his claim to be a legislative associate. Of course, if Mr Deluca can provide hard proof of such activity, we’ll be happy to correct the information, and share it with the NYS Assembly.]

We’re just wondering if Mr Deluca’s connections with ARANY, the special-interest, lobbying organization, Automotive Recyclers Association of New York, might not have some connection with the scrap business plans in Coeymans? How does Deluca’s law enforcement activity tie in with this lobbying, special interest group? Did Deluca’s position as executive director of ARANY have any impact on Deluca’s performance as a law enforcement officer? Like did he show preferences or favoritism in criminal investigations? Or bias or prejudice? What are his connections with land use and zoning in the town of Coeymans? Is there public corruption here?

The Hippo

The Hippo

Now, all joking aside: If you were an employer looking at this slug’s résumé, wouldn’t you have just a few questions about all of these “employments”? Wouldn’t you have a very well-founded suspicion of some sort of fraud or at least misrepresentation going on here? Well, we do. Especially when Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca is resigning/retiring and will be expecting to cash in on 32 years on the Coeymans police force! That means a check every month coming from the public’s cashbox!

Jerry Deluca Mugshot

A face you can really trust

We say: Before Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca gets a single penny or cashes a single check, the New York State Civil Service Department has to clarify some small details like: How did Mr Deluca manage to hold down so many positions while on the Coeymans police force? How many of those positions and activities claimed by Mr Deluca constituted illegal or unethical conflicts of interest with his law enforcement activities? How did those activities play into Deluca’s performance as a police officer and crime investigator? In short, how can Mr Deluca reconcile his claims regarding “experience” and the many positions he has held up to the “present” or up to “2012” as claimed in his résumé?

We’d like to know what Deluca’s connections are in the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the DEC, Laverne “Larry” Conrad, and Deluca’s other extracurricular connections have to do with local land-grabbing, zoning changes, misuse of public office and insider activities resulting in personal enrichment.

We’d like to know why Bryan Rowzee has skimmed over all of this and, in addition, fails to mention the obstruction of justice involving Deluca and his wife Cathy Deluca and the complaints against her that were filed with the Coeymans police department and got swept under the table there. What about the Notices of Claims against Mr and Mrs Deluca?

Why haven’t we heard about Mr Deluca’s harassment of a local woman at a RCS CSD school board meeting—a crime perpetrated together with Guess who? Mr Matthew Miller, teacher NYSUT representative at the RCS CSD—We might want to ask Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington and Mr Bryan Rowzee where that investigation went. It’s not only a civil investigation but a criminal investigation that, once reported, must be investigated. How about that Mr Darlington, Mr Rowzee?

And we won’t even mention the fine moral and ethical example set by Mr Gerald Deluca, a so-called “father figure” (at least according to the pervert Town of Coeymans board member Ken Burns), when he violated Church (Deluca is a parishioner at Ravena’s RC Church of St Patrick and also a “reader” there) and  New York State Law on adultery, while allegedly serving on the Coeymans police force, with the current Mrs Deluca. How about that, Jerry, Greg, Bryan? Here’s the law, if you need a reminder:

Section 255.17 of the state penal law states, “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.” A class B misdemeanor is punishable by up to 90 days in jail or a $500 fine.

In fact, we think that the Town of Coeymans has a lot of explaining to do about those very questions we raise above, and many more regarding Deluca’s claims and the operations of the Coeymans police department under Mr Gregory Darlington & friends. The New York State Office of the Comptroller, the New York State Department of Civil Service, and the New York State Attorney General’s Office need to have a very close look at Mr Deluca’s claims and the operation of the Coeymans police department. This might just be the tip of a very, very large, dangerous, criminal, corrupt and expensive iceberg!

In the end, though, we would like to sincerely wish Mr Deluca a very happy retirement elsewhere, like in Florida, where Dirty-Hands Jerry and Bottle-Blitz-Blond Cathy Deluca—if she can tear herself away from her health and fitness empire—could continue in the public’s eye in Orlando, Florida, at SeaWorld, where Dirty-Hands Jerry and Cathy could put on a hippo and manatee show; Jerry could be the hippo and Cathy could play the manatee. Now there’s a plan!

Secrets that you won’t get in the Ravena News Herald of the Johnson Newspaper Group or the Albany Times Union of the Hearst Corporation…

This blog has been doing a lot of work uncovering the secrets that you won’t get in the Ravena News Herald of the Johnson Newspaper Group or the Albany Times Union of the Hearst Corporation, or in any of the “owned” sock-puppet media controlled in Albany and Greene Counties. The voting public, the local taxpayers, our elected officials have to take a stand against corruption in government. That’s why YOU need to demand accountability and transparency! YOU need to demand investigation of situations like this one by the state and local agencies responsible for keeping government honest and prosecuting public corruption! YOU need to call the Town of Coeymans supervisor and Town of Coeymans board members, the Ravena News Herald, the Albany Times Union and the New York State offices and federal agencies responsible for investigating public corruption. If Deluca’s clean, only an investigation will prove that to the public’s satisfaction. But the process must be honest, complete and public!

Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District Served with Notice of Claim: School Violence


Please send this link to your contacts who may be interested in this topic. Link: http://wp.me/p2jPFe-1OT


Abysmal Graduation Rates, Crooked Teachers and Self-Serving School Board, $42 Million Budget, NYS Mandates for Anti-Bullying Training, a New State Law, the Dignity Act, and…

Still Violence in the RCS Schools. WHY?

But it Does if you're a Student in the RCS Schools

But it Does if you’re a
Student in the RCS Schools

That’s an important point of investigation that is very likely to be made when the facts of a recent Notice of Claim come before the courts, and the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District has to cough up an explanation Why? after a history and a pattern of student-on-student violence, attacks, ambushes, even suicide attempts have been allowed to continue!

An outraged parent recently served a complex Notice of Claim on the RCS-CSD asking just those questions and demanding, among other things, answers. Seems that a school district with a budget consistently larger than that of local municipalities combined and the biggest employer of morons in the area should be able to come up with the right answers. But looking at what we have to deal with in terms of teachers (if Martin Case or Matthew Miller or Brian Bailey are to be taken as examples) or support staff (like Rocco Persico, a school psychologist on the RCS payroll) or even principals like Pam Black or  Brian Bailey, well-liked (Why? Because he’s a dolt! A wingnut! That’s why he was made assistant superintendent for curriculum: to get the dolt, the wingnut out of the school! Wake up!), the causes are obvious.

Before the most recent board of education elections when the board was literally drowned with new teachers-clique members by re-electing of all people James Latter (known best for his abuses and breaches of confidentiality), Peter Brown of the Mary Partridge-Brown/Matthew Miller odd-couple (Now it appears it’s a threesome. Patrick E. Brown, of Brown & Weinraub, an Albany law firm, Mary Miller’s — Oops! Brown’s — husband, was elected but we know all too well who’s really on the RCS board of education: Matthew Miller, double-dipping teacher and teachers union rep), and newbie Jason Hyslop, a space-occupying lesion on the board, similar to a Edward “Teddy” Reville (drowsy-dog; and his name is not “Teddy”). So out of 9 seats on the school board, 6 are now occupied by teachers or member married to a teacher, or teacher tools (Brown & Hyslop). Can you tell where this board is heading? Does Latter’s wife or Miller’s wife get the principal’s position they’ve been hankering for but never got because they’re incompetent?

Well, back to the Notice of Claim… (Click here to read it in it’s entirety: Polyak Notice of Claim polyak_redacted; see also Village of Ravena, Town of Coeymans Police Department Served with Notices of Claim).

For six years Mr John Vadney and his colleagues on the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District board of education fought against the teachers clique on that school board to redirect attention from the administrators’ and teachers’ pockets to student safety and education.  While the teachers clique had the majority on the board under the closet guidance of the teachers union, New York State Teachers United (NYSUT) and its local representative, Matthew J. Miller, a high-school science teacher, who at the time was double-dipping to the tune of $18,000 a year from the school budget and on a reduced teaching load (and still is) so that he could (and still can) do his union work on the school budget tab, members James Latter, Alice Whalen, Howard Engel, and previously Gerald Deluca and Cathy Deluca (subsequently voted off the board) saw to it that the teachers and administrators were well taken care of while graduation rates in the RCS high-school plummeted and school violence thrived.

Once the non-teachers were voted into the majority, positive things started to happen in the RCS school district and Mr John Vadney and his team were able to make considerable progress in getting rid of the incompetent local teachers’ choice superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith and hiring Dr Allen R. McCartney to come in and clean things up. Matthew Miller and the teachers clique vehemently opposed McCartney’s hire but were overruled by those with the best interests of the district, Vadney, Robbins, Sylvester, Krzykowsky, and Lukens.

Total lies; total business as usual for the teachers union and the teachers clique.

dirty little lies

The teachers clique and their moles on the Coeymans police department (Gregory Darlington, Kerry Thompson (Darlington’s brother-in-law, and Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca) attempted everything to discredit the non-teachers on the board of education from framing the then board president, John Vadney, to intimidating Jeff Lukens when he came to his son’s defense (as any father would do), to libeling and slandering Rodney Krzykowski for exercising his civil rights, to even inciting bullyism or retaliation on the children of board members. Readers will certainly recall how one student thug ambushed and injured Mr Vadney’s son as he entered the high-school—but that was kept neatly under wraps and, when Vadney’s wife filed a Notice of Claim for the incident, the “Friends of RCS” the teachers clique electioneering arm, the Delucas, Mary Partridge-Brown (wife of lawyer Patrick Brown, now a RCS board of education member) spread the misinformation that Vadney was suing the school district. Total lies; total business as usual for the teachers union and the teachers clique. For the “Fiends of RCS” if it’s illegal or immoral or unethical, it’s OK. And they were elected to the majority on the board of education and promptly took full credit for all the good that Vadney, Sylvester, Robbins, Krzykowski, and Lukens were able to get jump started—such as improving the graduation rates and getting school safety underway, complying with state mandates for anti-bullying programs and training, etc., financial responsibility, accountability, and transparency — all opposed by the teachers clique, James Latter, Alice Whalen, Howard Engel, Edward “TeddyReville, on the board and now joined by Patrick Brown (that is, Matthew Miller and NYSUT) and James Hyslop!

prevent child abuseThe Vadney board was student-centered, not teacher-centered as it is now. The Vadney board focused on keeping students on track, and above all, safe! But the teachers clique, getting more and more defensive and desperate as time went on, unanimously opposed anything the non-teachers proposed, And it’s not as if no one ever heard of the bullying in the RCS schools or of the Dignity Act passed by the NYS legislature in order to make school personnel accountable and responsible for preventing bullying. Anyone with two eyes to see with and two ears to hear with couldn’t possibly have avoided the regular pleas of Mr Laszlo POLYAK at almost every RCS board of education meeting pleading with the superintendent, the teachers, the administrators to do something about the violence in the schools. Mr Polyak was a regular speaker addressing the superintendent and the board asking when they were going to comply with the requirements of the Dignity Act (principals and school administrators were dragging their feet when required to start-up training programs and enforcement of the Act in the RCS schools).

And then Mr Polyak’s own daughter is brutalized during a recess period while supposedly under the supervision of an aid. And she was attacked and injured by a well-known offender who was known to have done the very same thing a number of times in the past!

So, readers, when gentle, then in-your-face New-York-style persuasion doesn’t work and you’re ignored, your child is injured, it’s time to take some serious in-your-face New-York-style legal steps. And that’s what Mr Polyak was forced to do when he filed his Notice of Claim. The violence in our schools must stop and if it takes a $10 million lawsuit to do it, What the hey! Go for it if it’s the only think this school district understands (besides its $10 million the teachers union and the crooks in the school system won’t get their dirty hands on!)

The Vadney Board made it happen and got the wheels rolling but the Vadney board didn’t have enforcement powers in the schools, the administrators, teachers and principals had that. Nor did the board have police power or the authority to compel the local police, the Coeymans Police Department, to do their job and get proactive in terms of prevention of the violence and enforcing or collaborating (with what?) in compliance with the Dignity Act! If the RCS schools were non-compliant, slow to implement the procedures, indifferent to the violence, the Coeymans Police were just as guilty. Some of the duties of the town of Coeymans Police chief Gregory Darlington, according to his job description, are:

  • Administers and directs the operation of the police department;
  • Recommends organizational changes to the Town Board and directs necessary procedural changes;
  • Keeps Town Board abreast of major developments in law enforcement that affect department activities;
  • Represents the department at conferences and meetings;
  • Thorough knowledge of New York State Penal Law, Criminal Procedure Law, Vehicle and Traffic Law and all local laws and ordinances, regulations pertaining to police work.

Now we don’t think it’s stretching it when we ask: When the Coeymans Police Department has to respond to student-on-student violence, kids with guns in the trunk of their cars in the school parking lot, suicide attempts on school property, known bullying, coaches’ abuse of athletes and parents, violations of FERPA confidentiality (right James Latter?), reports of kids being denied boarding school buses and having to walk along Route 9W to get home, etc. wouldn’t you think the police chief would wake up and smell the coffee—the blood? Wouldn’t you think that the police chief would take the initiative and get proactive with acknowledging the problem? Wouldn’t you think the police chief would reach out to the board of education, to the school district with a plan? Wouldn’t you think the police chief would make an appearance at school board meetings to reassure the public that the problem is a priority for the local police? Maybe. But not in the Coeymans Police Department and not with police chief Gregory “DoDo cop” Darlington. And not with Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca lurking and, together with teacher/union rep Matthew “Matt-the-Mutt” Miller,  harassing local women at BoE meetings.

DUH! Wadda I do? The Coeymans PD's Response

DUH! Wadda I do?
The Coeymans PD’s Response

So the Coeymans Police Department is included in the recent Notice of Claim and rightly so.  If the Coeymans Police Department would act more like a community public service  organization rather than a Gestapo police state band of thugs hell-bent on retaliation, intimidation, and violation of protected civil rights, maybe the Coeymans Police Department and its police chief could avoid being named in lawsuits. Nah! That would require a Coeymans Town Board that did its job, that is, supervise the Coeymans Police Department and it’s police chief, Gregory Darlington, and do some disciplining where needed. But then, if the Town Board started coming down on the Coeymans Police Department, the board members and their families wouldn’t get special consideration and treatment, the felonies and misdemeanors wouldn’t disappear, would they?

 So what’s the deal Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach, board members Peter Masti, Thomas Boehm, Thomas Dolan, Dawn Rogers? When are you going to start doing your jobs and ensuring the Coeymans Police Department and its wimpy chief, Gregory Darlington, are doing their jobs, or else?

Mayor John Bruno and councilwoman Nancy Warner are too busy harassing the Teen Center and bitching about kids congregating around the Pulver Street gazebo

dirty tricksAnd then there’s the village of Ravena. The RCS middle and high school are in the jurisdiction of the village of Ravena, aren’t they? So what’s mayor John Bruno and village of Ravena councilpersons Nancy Warner, Martin Case (himself a teacher at the high school!), Rocco Persico (a school psychologist at the high school!) or William Bailey doing while all of this is going on? ANSWER: Not a damned thing! CORRECTION: They’re too busy whining about their water treatment and sewer bills from the town of Coeymans. Mayor John Bruno and councilwoman Nancy Warner are too busy harassing the Teen Center and bitching about kids congregating around the Pulver Street gazebo; they’re too busy cruising the gazebo at weird hours of the nite and getting the Coeymans police in a feeding frenzy over the “No Loitering” law (the subject of another Notice of Claim because the law is unconstitutional and unenforceable!). That’s the extent of the village of Ravena’s response to the violence!

See the recent article (click on the link):  Village of Ravena, Town of Coeymans Police Department Served with Notices of Claim.

More parents should take control and follow Mr Polyak’s lead

 We have already provided a link to the complete Notice of Claim served on the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District and the Coeymans Police Department. If you’re interested in reading it, just click on the link above. We’ve redacted the minor student’s name from the NoC but it’s in all other respects complete as filed. More parents should take control and follow Mr Polyak’s lead. Maybe then the RCS CSD, the town of Coeymans, the Coeymans Police Department, and the village of Ravena will take these important matters more seriously.

Ravena Laws Unconstitutional! Violation of Protected First Amendment Rights AGAIN!

Our Advice: Wear a Wire. Protect yourself when you talk to the Ravenazis or the Coeymanazis, when you enter their dens, when they approach you. New York State is a “one-party state” which means that if you are a party to a conversation you can tape the conversation without having to tell anyone. They’re crazy-paranoid now that they know we know they can be taped. If they behave themselves—which is highly unlikely—they have nothing to fear; if they don’t behave—which is very likely—you’ve got evidence and they have a problem. Ask mayor John Bruno and Cathy Deluca…they know!

Get Wired!

Get Wired!


Part One of a Multipart Exposé

All About Ravena, the Coeymans Police Department, Un-American Activities, Rights Violations, and Criminality Right Under Your Noses!

The Village of Ravena is Probably One of the Most Corrupt and Criminal Organizations Existing in The United States!

Mayor John "Black Mamba" Bruno and His Hand-Picked Hatchet-Heads Nancy Warner, Martin Case, Rocco Persico, William Bailey, Annette Demitraszek Burn the Constitution Daily

Mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno and His Hand-Picked Hatchet-Heads
Nancy Warner, Martin Case, Rocco Persico, William Bailey, Annette Demitraszek
Burn the Constitution Daily

Or the Village of Ravena is the Perfect Example of What Can Go Horribly Wrong in a Community and its Government!

Mayor John “Black Mamba”*  Bruno of the village of Ravena, New York, a small backwater ghetto suppressed by a gang of leftovers of the once flourishing Albany Democrat Machine is the godfather of a bunch of hooligan hatchet-heads who make up his royal court: village council members Nancy Warner, William “Bill” BaileyMartin “Marty” Case, and Rocco Persico, and hand-picked appointee village clerk, Annette Demitraszek. The Ravena village board members call themselves erroenously “trustees” but they can be trusted only to screw local residents and taxpayers, to discriminate against anyone who disagrees with them, to richly reward anyone as crooked as they are (example: the Ravena Health and Fitness Club a.k.a. Cathy Deluca’s playpen).

* As the legend goes, Bruno, once a shiff supervisor at the local cement plant, got his nickname back when he was sleeping on the job at the cement plant and due to his negligence, he burnt up one of the kilns. His coworkers have since called him the “Black Mamba.” At the cement plant he was also known for his unfair practices when it came to promoting his favorites over the qualified. Nothing has changed.

We are uncovering just how criminal and un-American Bruno and his hatchet-heads really are. We recently published an exposé on how Bruno, the village of Ravena village board, and local shyster Michael Biscone, one of the most unethical and sleezy lawyers in the area, attempted to suppress residents’ First Amendment rights of free speech and expression when they wanted to censor the right to speak at public meetings. If you missed that article you can read it at (Click the links!):  Business as Usual in Ravena: Violation of Constitutional Rights! (read our article also on how the Coeymans Police Department suppresses freedom of speech at Coeymans Police Suppress Freedom of Speech!).

Village of Ravena Makes Misleading Application to the Albany County Civil Service Department to Get Cathy Deluca Non-Competitive Civil Service Job Title as Fitness Center Director

We’ve also published a number of articles on this blog about how Ravena’s mummy mayor John Bruno and girlfriend “trustee” Nancy Warner teamed up with Cathy Deluca, the wife of Coeymans police investigator and local thug, Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca, to illegally spend $40,000 of taxpayer money to buy used fitness equipment, then to create the Ravena Health and Fitness Center (Rats-nest Heap and Fatness Clinic) behind everyone’s back. Then they tried to create a non-competitive civil service position for Cathy Deluca, who has no real qualifications and who’s getting $30,000 of taxpayer money out of the $105,000+ of taxpayer money allocated to fund the RHFC for 2013-2014. By the way, mayor Bruno, Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca got caught red-handed in their lies to the Albany County Civil Service Department when a local resident obtained their application. Michael Cummings, another local democrat tool and director of the Albany County Civil Service Department had some explaining to do when we caught him with his pants down around his ankles after he approved the application that was incomplete! Ravena had to submit a number of justifications but didn’t and Cummings approved the application anyway! They probably thought they’d never get caught. But we caught them and the cat hit the fan in Albany. We’re still keeping tabs on that little sneaky operation and we’ll continue to report on the local and Albany County Civil Service corruption. Stay tuned!

Cathy Deluca Abuses Local Resident and Tells Him He’s Not Welcome and Gets the Village of Ravena Sued for Her Violation of the Resident’s Protected Constitutional Rights!

Then there’s the happening at the Ravena Health and Fitness Center when a local resident visited the place for a tour and was accosted and abused by Cathy Deluca, who then told him he had to leave, “You’re not welcome here.”  That was a brilliant example of a big mistake and total ignorance by Cathy Deluca and her keepers because it violated a number of constitutionally protected rights and got the village of Ravena and Deluca slaped with a $1,000,000 claim and now they’re facing a lawsuit. Nice going, Cathy.

Cathy Deluca and Accomplice Claude A. Wheeles, a Fitness Center Employee, Lie to Police…Get Criminal Complaint Filed Against them and Another Notice of Claim and Pending Lawsuite against the Village of Ravena!

But that wasn’t enought for Cathy Deluca, greedy tub that she is. Cathy Deluca then made a complaint with the Coeymans Police that the resident “harassed” her—a bare-faced lie—and then told the investigating officer, Jason Albert, that the resident had insulted a patron at the RHFC and that was the reason the resident was thrown out—another bare-faced lie. Based on Cathy Deluca’s lies and the support of one of her employees, Claude A. Wheeles, the Coeymans Police investigated and found nothing. How do we know all of what Deluca and Wheeles told the Coeymans Police was a pack of lies? The whole thing was recorded! Absolutely brilliant! Absolutely delicious! And we have copies of the recordings (both the events during the resident’s visit and Deluca’s performance and Officer Jason Alberts interview of the resident at the Coeymans Police station, where Officer Albert confirms Deluca’s lies.) What a surprise when the resident filed criminal charges against Deluca and Wheels for falsely reporting an incident and conspiracy to commit that crime, both misdemeanors. What a surprise when the village of Ravena’s attorney deposed the resident only to find out that (1) Deluca had lied, (2) that there was a recording of the actual incident, (2) that criminal complaint was filed against Deluca and Wheeles for their lies, (3) that a second Notice of Claim and lawsuit were pending against the village of Ravena, Cathy Deluca, and Claude Wheeles (including also the members of the village of Ravena board) based on Deluca’s and Wheeles’ criminal acts.

Citizen to Mayor John Bruno: Shut up! Or get out!

Ravena mayor John Bruno and hatchet-woman Nancy Warner sat in on the deposition/hearing at which the resident was questioned by the village’s attorney. Mayor Bruno was making wierd noises and being a general jerk and the resident allegedly told him to stop his stupidity or get out. After that, Bruno behaved himself.

Is Mayor Bruno Senile or Just Goofy? The Goofy Godfather

Is Mayor Bruno Senile or Just Goofy?
The Goofy Godfather

This just in: We have a copy of the actual transcript of the 50h hearing. Here’s what the complainant told mayor Bruno:

Complainant (to Bruno): Do you find this funny, Mr Mayor? If you do, please leave. I don’t want you snickering over there. You’ve been doing it several times already. This is not funny.

Attorney: I lost my train of thought.

Complainant (to attorney): I would like to object to Mr Bruno’s snickering and strange little noises that he’s emitting over there.

Attorney: That’s noted on the record.

Complainant: Thank you.

That’s how Ravena’s mayor John Bruno behaves in a legal proceeding, like a two-year old. Is he that senile already?

Ravena Village Clerk Annette Demitraszek Attempts to Avoid Producing Documents in Response to Demands under the New York State Freedom of Information Law and Gets Hit with a Notice of Claim and Possible Lawsuit.

You may have  believed that the village clerk is elected like the town clerk is. But she’s not. She’s appointed by mummy mayor John Bruno. She’s another tool of the un-American, criminal  regime on Mountain Road that calls itself the village of Ravena government. For several months Annette Demitraszek has been receiving demands for documents from residents trying to make sense of the craziness that goes on in the village offices and Demitraszek, apparently under mayor Bruno’s boney thumb and with Nancy Warner breathing down her back, plays the game and does her best to hide what she can and refuse to produce what she can. Well that worked fine for many years UNTIL NOW.

Demitraszek and her keepers had managed for a while to get the executive director of the Committee on Open Government, Robert Freeman, another democrat machine hack in Albany, to listen to their misinformation and then to use Freeman’s words to refuse to respond to F.O.I.L. demands. But when residents demand clarification or an explanation of the silly excuses…DEAD SILENCE. Now Demitraszek, mayor Bruno, the Ravena village board, have been served with a Notice of Claim charging them with obstruction and violation of the provisions of the New York State Freedom of Information Laws. That’s going to be another lawsuit.

The village of Ravena has plenty to hide but those days are gone; now the village of Ravena has to explain their criminality and their un-American activities.


Stay tuned for:

Part Two: Ravena’s Laws Are Unconstitutional—No Loitering? How the village of Ravena, the Coeymans Police Department, and a Jerky-Boy District Attorney, P. David Soares cooperate to violate your rights!

Part Three: The Coeymans Police Department—Scoff-laws in Uniform. How Indifference and Bias Denies You Your Constitutional Rights. (This is a must-read for Coeymans police chief Gregory “DoDo-Cop” Darlington, Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” BoBo-Cop-Deluca, and Officers Jason “what investigation” Albert, Ryan “Psychocop” Johnson, Kerry “it’s hearsay” Thompson)

Part Four: Suing the Town of Coeymans Coeymans Police Department for Obstruction of Justice and Misuse of Public Office. How Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington is going to lose his job and his crooked cops may find themselves doing jail time. So you want to make misdemeanors and felonies disappear, Mr Tom Dolan (Ask Tommy about his son’s escapades and where the charges went) and Dawn Rogers (Ask Dawn about her daughter’s friend the bottle and where the alleged DUI charges went). You might want to ask about how evidence is safeguarded in the Coeymans Police Department or their recipe for hitting parents through their kids. Or you might want to ask how to frame a resident or how to screw up a drug raid for a thimble full of marijuana while the real druggies are in the Ravena offices or the Coeymans PD evidence room (just speculating on this one). Of course, the Coeymans Police would rather hassle a bunch of kids congregating on a public gazebo than go after real criminals like Scott Lenden and his helpers (theft, possession of stolen goods, criminal tresspass). But then Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca was investigator on that case and didn’t move his fat arse on it for six months until the victims called in the Albany County Sheriff’s team. Or how about arresting a kid for possessing his own prescription drugs and having him jailed for 45 days…on the information provided by a known, convicted druggie? An what about the recent botched up drug raids? Any comment, chief Darlington or admin assistant Kerry Thompson? And what happend to the investigations of Cathy Deluca and Claude Wheeles on falsely reporting an incident—one that never happened but Deluca and Wheeles collaborated and lied about it—maybe Officer Jason Albert, chief Gregory Darlington, or maybe Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca can provide some answers. How does evidence leak out, Mr Deluca, Mr Darlington, Officer Albert?

Part Five: Going after the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk Central School District Board of Education, a Turncoat Superintendent of Schools, and the Teachers Union Lackeys Voted to the RCS Board of Education. How’d that all happen? We’ve got some information and facts that are going to knock your socks off and have some people soiling their undies. The real facts behind what cooking on the BoE and what a suicidal, ignorant school district has done to itself by handing over $40 million to crooks!


Anyone who questions what we write can just ask his or her questions at a public village or town meeting. Mayor John Bruno and the Ravena village trustees Nancy Warner, Bill Bailey, Marty Case, Rocco Persico,or Supervisor Stephen Flach and the town board members Tom Dolan, Dawn Rogers, Peter Masti,  Tom Boehm, or Coeymans Police Department chief Gregory Darlington will be more than pleased to put up a smoke screen and tell you the lies you’d like to hear. Try it. Let us know how you make out.
