High Marks for the RCS Community Library

The RCS Community Library under the direction of Judith Wines is doing a pretty fantastic job of getting some really interesting programs out to the community. In fact, when requested, we published the public information on an unusual but apparently very interesting and needed program that’s found a home at the RCS Community Library, Thanatology Café, a program that offers the opportunity to talk about death, dying, grief, mourning and death-related subjects.

We’ve read a pretty nice post on the Thanatology Café blog that is complimentary of the RCS Community Library and it’s staff, and we really think RCS should take note of the fine work the RCS Community Library is doing for the community.

Our more than 300,000 readers know well that we have no qualms about being outspoken when it comes to our community and the Ravena News Herald, but truth be told the Ravena News Herald and editor Melanie Lekocevic apparently have been generously supportive of the library and the Thanatology Café program, if our observations are correct. Fair is fair and when the News Herald is on the up and up, we want to be the first to say Nice job! Thank you!

BUT…

Churches, Funeral Homes, First Responders

Churches, Funeral Homes, First Responders

We do have some disturbing information though and we have verified it factually. Here we have an innovative program, Thanatology Café, sponsored by a reputable and highly-respected community organization, the RCS Community Library, and even getting the support of the Ravena News Herald but WTF!!!!! We have information that about 100 information packets were sent out to local churches and public service organizations, including fire departments, EMS, first responders, and police departments, including the Coeymans fire and rescue squad, the Ravena Hose Company, and the Coeymans Police Department, just to name a few, and it appears none of those organizations responded.

Local churches have their hands out for stipends whenever a local dies but almost every church in the area does not offer a bereavement education, a death awareness, or death education program…

no handoutsWhat’s even worse is that the organizers (for the record the RCS Community Library hosts the program but does not organize it) invited local churches and pastors to announce the program and to post the attractive flyers to inform their congregations of the availability of the thanatology program, yet, according to the spokesperson for Thanatology Café, not a single one responded and there is no evidence that anyone from any of the local RCS churches bothered to attend the inaugural event. That does seem a bit strange to us and we’d like to hear from members of the congregations of local churches whether they even heard about the program from their so-called pastors. We find that strange because local churches have their hands out for stipends whenever a local dies but almost every church in the area does not offer a bereavement education, a death awareness, or death education program. We would think they’d jump at the opportunity to learn more about the program from the get go!

Why didn’t the local death businesses — Babcock Funeral Home, A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes, W.C. Brady’s Sons Funeral Home respond?

death-its-a-livingAnd you’d think that the local businesses that make a bundle of money from local deaths, Babcock Funeral Home and A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes, both right down the street from the library, would seize the unique opportunity to join in the death education opportunities offered by a program like Thanatology Café but apparently Sharon Babcock and the A.J. Cunningham staff had better things to do than join in a community educational program. We’ll be keeping an eye on our local death industry, you can be assured of that. Both Babcock Funeral Home and A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes were provided with special packets along with W.C. Brady’s Sons Funeral Home (Coxsackie) and several other regional funeral homes were provided with special packets and invitations. We have the documents and we have the questions, too, Why didn’t the local death businesses respond?

People are more aware, more interested and willing to discuss the subject, the options and the choices…death and dying, living wills, advance directives, and funeral and memorial options

We’ve done the online research and find that Death Cafes, Death Salons, discussion groups about death and dying, hospice and palliative care organizations, healthcare organizations, special interest groups dealing with infant death, suicide, traumatic death, etc. are thriving and growing because people are more aware, more interested and willing to discuss the subject, the options and the choices, and are not waiting til the last minute to learn as much as they can about death and dying, living wills, advance directives, and funeral and memorial options.

Are they scared that Thanatolgy Café might rock their comfy little boats…get people to ask the important questions?

Can our churches, first responders, funeral homes be so petty as to get involved in small-minded turf wars at your expense?

Petty, stupid turf wars?

Petty, stupid turf wars?

So we’re getting interested now, too, but especially why local churches, who are constantly preaching about death and whatnot, and local first responders and rescue squads, who frequently have to deal with death, and in particular, why the three main death businesses, Babcock Funeral Home, A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes, and W.C. Brady’s Sons Funeral Home are so silent when an important program comes to the area. Are they scared that Thanatolgy Café might rock their comfy little boats, stir up some good and reliable information in the community, get people to ask the important questions? Maybe. We have learned that the Thanatology Café program will be providing a lot of information on pre-arrangements, available options and choices, how to go about creating your living will or Advance directive, funeral and memorial choices and recommendations, and much, much more. Stuff you need to know no matter what your age and information you’re not likely to get anywhere else.

we know where your head isDon’t you think you’d be getting a better deal from church, rescue squad, senior center and funeral home if they were better informed about death, dying, surviving, and the choices and options you should have? Can our churches and so-called pastors, our community funded first responders, local funeral homes, who cash in on the community’s ignorance and lack of information, be so petty as to get involved in small-minded turf wars at your expense? Looks like it. But keeping their heads tucked up a dark, wet spot won’t do them any good. Let’s hear from them. Let’s hear from our readers.

Town of Coeymans and Town of New Baltimore

Town of Coeymans and
Town of New Baltimore


Town of Coeymans

No, we haven’t gone AWOL on our watch. We’re working on a story about how the Phil Crandall/Youmans/Dolan mob are screwing town of Coeymans taxpayers. Didn’t we hear Phil Crandall say something about cutting the costs of local government, blah, blah, blah?

Well, apparently disgraced former village justice Phil Crandall, Psycho-bully Youmans and Dithering-Tom Dolan don’t think that cost containment applies to their cronies they imported when they took office. We’re talking specifically about the alleged overtime Crandall’s administrative clerk Nita Chmielewski is collecting hand-over-fist. It seems that old Nita is incompetent and doesn’t know what she’s doing — as if she ever did; nothing seems to change in the in-crowd in Coeymans — and she’s collecting a bundle for her incompetence and ignorance. Wonder if Mr Crandall, Mr Youmans or Mr Dolan can explain why their cronies get the overtime, while the Coeymans Police Department is consistently saving on costs, economizing, and coming in under budget under the professional supervision of a competent chief?

A contributor has demanded the production of certain documents that will prove the corruption in Coeymans town hall and the hypocrisy of Mr Crandall and his cronies

Stay tuned for the fireworks!


Town of New Baltimore

There’s word out that something’s cooking in New Baltimore about the New Baltimore Supervisor of Highways and the Highways Department and indifference, negligence and dereliction of duty and responsibility.

Thanks to the double-dealing of the Greene County Independence Party Committee chairman George Ackerman and co-chairperson, Irene Beede, and their mismanagement of a very worthy candidate, Mr Alan vanWormer in the elections last November, Denis Jordan was re-elected by a single — Yes! 1 vote! — and despite the known corruption, crookedness, incompetence and ignorance that is the hallmark of his department, he didn’t go to jail but kept his office. But that’s New Baltimore and screwy-Louie politics run by incompetent political committees.

Do you actually think YOU elect these bozos?

We have information that a pretty big law suit is in the brewing that will be brought against the town of New Baltimore, the New Baltimore Highway Department and Denis Jordan for incompetence, negligence, and indifference by dereliction of duty and violation of applicable state laws. Seems Jordan’s friends get all the highway department services while others get the finger, and can watch their property values collapse because of poor road and drainage maintenance.

A collaborator is getting the information together and talking to the aggrieved parties and we’ll be the first to release the information.

One crook is going to cost an entire town a bundle. Go figure!

Return of the Scumbuckets! Coeymans Does It Again!

Coeymans Voters Showed that They Are Either Brain Dead or Slobbering Suckers

But How Can So Many People Be Crying About the Election Results if They Didn’t Vote for the Crooks? Something isn’t right in Coeymans!

The trash bags are back! Dithering Tom Dolan, a farce of a boardmember, caused a stir a couple of years ago when he was the subject of a scandal revolving around his tampering with absentee ballots from individuals receiving benefits from his Choices program in Ravena. Tom Dolan has been the subject of several scandals since then. Most recently he leaked a confidential Comptroller’s draft that his crony scoundrel Jim Youmans played to the hilt.

How quickly the residents and voters of the town of Coeymans forget that both Jim Youmans and Rick Touchette had been in public office but were dumped by Coeymans voters just about 2 years ago. They weren’t worth re-election then so what’s changed since? Only that they were involved in more scandals and unlawful conduct; is that what gets a democrap elected in Coeymans?

Well, the only thing that has changed is that they added another scandal to their list: Dolan, Touchette and Phil Crandall were all involved in the ticket fixing scam that forced Phil Crandall to resign from elected office in disgrace, never again to run for judicial office. All of them, Dolan, Touchette and Crandall were tight together and involved in getting and giving illegal favors that forced Crandall to resign from the judgeship! But you voted Tom Dolan and Rick Touchette back into office.  Even worse still, you put bully Jim Youmans back where you didn’t want him a couple of years ago! How can you do that, Coeymans?

Didn’t you read our factsheets on the candidates? Read them now and weep, stupids! Click here: What You Need to Know Before Voting on November 3rd.

Coeymans Voters Pumped Raw Sewerage into Town Hall! Dolan, Youmans, Touchette

On November 3rd Coeymans Voters Pumped Raw Sewerage into Town Hall!

So what do Coeymans voters, morons that they are, do? They re-elect scoundrels to represent them and to govern the town of Coeymans. So what’s the plan here, people? You’re bitching that the town is going to the dogs. You make some progress in forcing two dirty cops, Dirty Hands Jerry Deluca and his dumpling Gregory Darlington into retirement. The police department is shining now, a real part of the community, saving money and working with the community. The town of Coeymans is in the black with the 2015 budget! And so you bunch of dullwits go and put a damper on it all by re-electing a dithering idiot loser, Tom Dolan, and then electing two known crooks and scoundrels, Rich Touchette and Jim Youmans. That’s just what the doctor ordered to fix Coeymans, people, a great police chief and an honest police department with crooks and bullies on the town board! Congratulations, you’re all now charter members of the DUMBASS CLUB.

How is it possible that Coeymans voters could put that crook Touchette in the Albany county legislature. He’s listed as one of the plaintiffs in a case that is trying to kill economic development in Coeymans; do you really think he’s going to do better in Albany? If he’s so great, why didn’t you re-elect him to the town board in 2013? Short memories or brain dead voters kill communities. You’re well on your way, Coeymans.

Apart from demonstrating that you’re all a bunch of terminal retards and dumb as a rock, the only other alternative is this: You’ve been had, Coeymans! Tom Dolan and his welfare parasites, the ghetto on the hill, sold their votes for benefits. That’s the only other way to explain this situation. It’s the only way a halfway sane community could possibly justify such dumbass election results: The Coeymans dumbocrap party used every dishonest and villainous trick in the book to get the votes they needed to keep Coeymans in the democrap strangle-hold and part of the democrat political machine run by the Albany democrat mafia. And that’s exactly what Tom Dolan and his democrap thugs did, in fact!


Crandall and Youmans show Coeymans voters what they have to offer. Dolan not shown (nothing to offer).

Coeymans, you really have to call for an investigation of this election. It couldn’t have been more crooked. No sane community could possibly have elected such a bunch of crooks, bullies and scoundrels without some unlawful help from the party leadership. This is outrageous and beyond suspicious!

COEYMANS VOTERS NEED TO DEMAND A RECALL, A REVOTE! SAVE YOURSELF COEYMANS!

Those of you who read this blog had all the information you needed handed to you! All of it from court records, the media, from reliable sources. We even provided you with links to that important information so you could send it to your friends and neighbors. SHAME ON YOU ALL!!! YOU DESERVE EVERYTHING YOU GET FROM YOUR CROOKS AND BULLIES YOU ELECTED, AND THEN SOME. WE’LL BE WATCHING AND HAVING A GREAT LAUGH AT YOUR IMBECILIC CHOICES.

NOW, YOU CAN EITHER SIMMER IN YOUR OWN PUTRID JUICES OR YOU CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. THE ALTERNATIVE IS TO LET BULLY YOUMANS, CROOKS DOLAN AND THEIR CONIES PLAY YOU ALL FOR THE FOOLS YOU PROVED YOURSELVES TO BE.

AND NEW BALTIMORE HAD BETTER KEEP VERY CLOSE TABS ON THEIR ELECTION RESULTS. REPUBLICANS SEEM TO THINK THAT PLAYING BY THE RULES WILL GET THEM SOMEWHERE; HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE THEM TO REALIZE THAT THE DEMOCRAPS DON’T HAVE ANY RULES. TIME TO GET THE ATTORNEYS INVOLVED.

The Crandall, Dolan, Touchette Connection: Wanna Be Sick?

It never ceases to amaze us how Ravena and Coeymans seem to wallow in their own sewerage — sometimes literally — when it comes to putting local wannabes and losers on the election ballots. This time around, though, the town of Coeymans seems to have outdone itself with its scatological selection of dolts, crooks, and recycled losers. What is wrong with Coeymans? Why is it Coeymans can’t find anyone to run without a laundry list of unlawful conduct, corrupt practices and outright crookery? Let’s have a look at what Coeymans has put on its plate of “Let’s have crow for dinner”.

Albany County & Coeymans Run A Bunch of Losers

Albany County & Coeymans Run A Bunch of Losers

Tom Dolan: We might as well start with this king of the loser wannabes. Dolan has a long history of non-performance but is a major backstabber waffler. Dolan is right there when the spotlight is on someone else and he’s ready to make some stupid comment he thinks will make him shine but only exposes his absolute ignorance and stupidity. But he’s chairman of the Coeymans democrap committee and he can choose and endorse democrap candidates for public office in the Coeymans communities. That’s sick!

Tom Dolan is Coeymans’ answer to Ravena’s Bill Bailey

Just his short-term history will give you an idea of who this vulture is: Remember Dolan’s voter registration scandal he created from his Choices program office? We do. He was allegedly using his position as director of the Choices program to “encourage” recipients to register a certain way-in support of Dolan’s ambitions, obviously. It was sort of buy-a-vote for benefits. Is that what we need in town government? Dolan was there for renaming Coeymans “Reubenville“; in other words he prostituted the town of Coeymans for a roast beef sandwich. He didn’t care how ridiculous it made the community appear. He got a fistful of coupons for free sandwiches (no record was ever kept of the hundreds of coupons and where they went). Actually, when we think of dithering dolts, Tom Dolan is Coeymans’ answer to Ravena’s Bill Bailey!

Dolan also lost his bid for a seat in the New York State Senate. It wasn’t just a loss, it was a political disaster.

Dolan and his cronies were key in selling out to Carver Companies and letting Carver Laraway rape the community, get tax breaks and make millions at the community’s and the environment’s expense. We’d like to know where the DEC and the EPA was when all that was going on; or where the DEC and the EPA are now that all of the crap is running into the Coeymans Creek. It sure makes a difference when and where the DEC and EPA show up when you have the likes of Tom Dolan, Larry Conrad, Jerry Deluca, Gregory Darlington and other vermin on your side, doesn’t it?


Is Laverne “Larry” Conrad, Coeymans Code Enforcement Officer, A Key Here?

Remember...

Remember…Time is running out.

It would be salvific if Mr Conrad, as he approaches death, were to consider confessing his involvement in so many corrupt and damning transactions and conspiracies; if Mr Laverne “Larry” Conrad were to come clean, seek absolution, and reconciliation with those, to whom he has caused so much suffering, he may find some redemptive merit in also bringing those whose guilt he shares, by exposing them, to seek forgiveness and peace. That would be a very meritorious Christian final gesture on Mr Conrad’s part, and a contribution to making this a better world before he leaves it, before he comes face-to-face with his creator and judge. How about it, Mr Conrad? If you want to schedule an appointment with a chaplain, just write confidentially to rcs.confidential@gmail.com.


The Carver, DEC, EPA, Coeymans Deals

The Carver, DEC, EPA, Coeymans Deals

And where are all those jobs that were created to convince the stupids in Coeymans and the corrupt EPA to give Laraway and his Carver Companies license to rape the environment and create new dangers for residents with increased heavy truck traffic and dust, Dust, DUST! Thanks Dolan!

Not only that, here we have Dolan’s own wife, My Lin Dolan, suing the town of Coeymans for a nose injury the clumsy cow sustained on town property. That’s how Dolan stewards the town of Coeymans’ interest: his wife sues the town. In a document dated September 1, 2015, from Dolan’s attorney to the Town of Coeymans, the town is served with notice of Dolan’s claim. Dolan’s response: Everyone has the right to sue. But that response doesn’t apply to everyone, of course.

But Dolan’s real failure is in his role as chairman of the Coeymans democrap party. All that Dolan could come up with is a handful of loser political recycles: Phil Crandall, Youmans, Touchette, and of course, Dolan himself.

Youmans, Crandall, Dolan, Touchette

Youmans, Crandall, Dolan, Touchette

The best way we can say is to be found in some “confidential” papers that we have acquired and go back to former judge Phil Crandall’s problems with the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct, and which resulted in Mr Crandall’s resignation from his elected judgeship after only two years on the bench (He was elected to be a Coeymans town justice and also served as a part-time village of Ravena justice alongside his backstabbing colleague, Harold “Hal” Warner, husband of village of Ravena village hall harlot Nancy Warner). (Read the Times Union report, “Coeymans town justice resigns amid charges“.)

It’s interesting to note that Crandall’s resignation was connected with favors he did for Dolan, Touchette and others while still a judge. Just as we’ve been writing and informing the community over the past 3 years, there are two classes of citizens in the town of Coeymans: those in the incest club and everyone else. As charter members of the Coeymans Incest Club (a.k.a. the Coeymanazis) Dolan, Youmans, Touchette and Crandall took care of one another and others until the water got too hot. You all know the saying, “No honor among thieves.” Well, the Dolan gang was living proof of the saying. Crandall may have done the favors but Dolan and Touchette certainly weren’t turning them down.

The examples we are providing below come directly from the Formal Complaint against Crandall filed with the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct and the “stipulation” of resignation in lieu of hearing signed by Crandall. By signing the stipulation Crandall agreed to resign all judicial offices he held and he also agreed never to run again for judicial office. You can certainly guess why he wanted to avoid a hearing at all costs, can’t you? If there were a hearing an awful lot of rats would be jumping ship or would be shipped downstate to enjoy the hospitality of the New York State Corrections system.

But All Three Freaks are Alive

But All Three Freaks are Alive

Charge I of the Complaint involves Crandall and Richard “Dick” Touchette’s son, Jeffrey, who was charged with failure to stop at a stop sign. According to the documents, Crandall met Tochette “at church” (“At church” no less! That could only be at St Patrick’s RC of Ravena. Talk about hypocrits!), where Touchette discussed with Crandall Touchette’s son’s pending court appearance. At the time, Gregory Teresi was village attorney, and his practice was to “plea bargain” friends’ tickets to parking tickets (a fine of $25.000, but that wasn’t good enough for Touchette or for Crandall, Crandall had it fixed to be an ACOD, adjourned in contemplatin of dismissal. The Commission found that to be in violation of the Constitution and in violation of Judiciary Law. In other words, Richard “Dick” Touchette, now running for County Legislature, unlawfully met with then judge Crandall to get his son’s moving violation fixed. Is Touchette or Crandall the kind of people we need in government? We say NO!

Charge II of the Complaint describes a second incident, and involves Crandall’s brother-in-law, James A. Albano, who was ticketed for an uninspected vehicle. Again, Gregory Teresi was involved. When Albano appeared in court, Crandall dismissed the charge. The Commission found that Crandall acted unethically and unlawfully by knowingly hearing the case of a close relative, his brother-in-law (Crandall is married to Albano’s sister), finding that Crandall granted a “lenient dispostion” to a relative, and so violated the Constitution and Judiciary Law.

Charge III of the Complaint involves candidate for re-election to the Town of Coeymans town council, Mr Thomas E. “Tom” Dolan, who is also Coeymans democrap committee chairman, who got Youmans and Touchette on the ballot! The Commission notes that Dolan was charged with and ticketed by a state trooper for speeding (78 mph in a 65 mph area). The case was to be heard in Coeymans court. The problem is Crandall should not have been involved to hear the case because Dolan was on the town council at the time and the Coeymans town council determined Crandall’s salary; there was a serious conflict of interest involved. Dolan appeared before Crandall and Crandall accepted Gregory Teresi’s “plea bargain” to change the ticket to a parking ticket ($25.00 fine). The Commission found Crandall guilty of violation of the Constitution and of Judiciary Law.

Coeymans seems to have outdone itself with its scatological selection of dolts, crooks, and recycled losers as candidates for public office!

clueless is no excuse

Charge IV of the Complaint involves Crandall misusing his judicial office to intervene in a dispute between local police-former chief Gregory “Duplin'” Darlington and Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca were all involved in this one. The Complaint reports that Deluca entered Crandall’s daughter’s, Jena Crandall, residence without a warrant and searched the place, which got Crandall’s “son-in-law”, Anthony Walsh, in a huff. Crandall improperly used his position as town judge to intervene and to try to get the Coeymans police to apologize to avoid a lawsuit. The Commission found this to be a violation of the Constitution and of Judiciary Law. Crandall misused is office to influence the police.

The papers include certified transcriptions of the telephone conversation between Crandall and Darlington, parts of which we found to be very interesting in terms of Crandall’s relationship with Mr Stephen Flach, Coeymans town supervisor. Somehow these statements don’t really make you comfortable with the guy’s character. Here are a couple:

CRANDALL: “…I think we can makethis all go away…This is all Steve Flach and his horde need to try to eliminate the police department again and I don’t want that.”
CRANDALL:–And I don’t want this. I don’t want any of this to go any further than here. I just want you to take care of it.”
DARLINGTON: “…And I don’t understand what — how this has to do with civil rights or Flach wanting to get rid of the police department.”
CRANDALL: “No, I’m just afraid. I’m afraid that he’ll use something like this with his dominions.”
DARLINGTON: “Mm-hmmm…”
CRANDALL: “He’ll pack a town board meeting and start raising hell, and I don’t want that.”
DARLINGTON: “Right.”
CRANDALL:”Because I want our police department.”
DARLINGTON: “Mm-hmmm…”
CRANDALL: “…Just think of how you would feel if this happened to your daughter or son-in-law.”

Well, having read the transcript, we can’t say we agree with Crandall, even if the Coeymans police department at the time was a bunch of ignorant, corrupt thugs. It appears that once the corruption was removed from the town court and from the police department, Mr Flach’s police department is running perfectly. We have a law enforcement professional in Chief P.J. McKenna who is doing a stellar job. The Coeymans police department is still there but it’s doing its job professionally. Any other questions Mr Crandall? Seems that was a very bad call, Mr Crandall. You lose again!

We have a law enforcement professional in Chief P.J. McKenna who is doing a stellar job

We also have some off-the-record information from the village of Ravena. It seems that former mayor John Bruno wanted Phil Crandall to be a village/town justice so that he, Crandall, could be elected to be Coeymans town supervisor. Apparently, Bruno and his minions felt that if Crandall were elected to that position, the village would have a chance to take over Coeymans. The plan sounds so crazy its believable given the history of Bruno’s minions, Nancy Warner, Hal Warner, Kathy and “Dirty-Hands-Jerry” Deluca and the Darlingtons, and their minions!

Here we have local elected officials conspiring together to abuse the trust the public put into them when they were elected. They’re asking for and getting favors from insiders, something none of us can do. But these are just a couple of the incidents. We’ve already published information on local officials getting special favors for their kids’ drug and vehicular offenses from the Deluca-Darlington police department and from local judges. Cathy Deluca lied to a police investigator (Jason Albert) and obstructed justice, misdemeanors at least, but the Deluca-Darlington police department refused to investigate.

While former Ravena mummy-mayor Bruno and Nancy Warner may have been prepping Crandall to be Coeymans town supervisor, Crandall obviously gave favors to the wrong people and his own turned on him (Hal and Nancy Warner), forcing him to resign or go to hearing. A hearing was out of the questions because it would have opened the floodgates for investigations into Ravena government and the cat would have hit the fan.

You can make all the excuses you want for Crandall but the bottom line is that he’s unfit for elected office as Coeymans town supervisor.

That brings us to Tom Dolan and his picks for democrap candidates, Dick Touchette and Youmans. Touchette was a member of the Coeymans town board in 2011 but lost his bid for re-election in 2011. He campaigned alongside Crandall in 2011. Touchette lost the election in 2011. Our question is what has changed to make Dolan think this community wants the likes of Touchette back in 2015? Is that the best democrap chairman Dolan can do for Coeymans is to offer another loser to the community for election? So, when Youmans and Touchette lost the elections, they decided they would retaliate by pushing to terminate health benefits for elected officials! Of course, Mr and Mrs Crandall backed them all the way. They’re an example of the good church-goin’ Christian hypocrites swarming at St Patrick’s RC in Ravena!

Dolan, Crandal, Youmans, Touchette, Masti, Miller

And isn’t it odd that John Bruno (former mayor of Ravena), Phil Crandall (former village and town justice), “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca (former Coeymans cop), Cathy Deluca (former 3x failed healthclub manager), Gregory Darlington (former Coeymans police chief), Gregory Teresi (former village attorney), Joseph Teresi (former NYS court judge) were all shown the door at about the same time. Is there some connection with “Leave or Go to Jail”? Did those exits signal an end to decades of corruption? How is it that Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares has lasted this long? He should be the next dumpy dolt to go!

In an article several months ago, we informed our readers that Touchette is director of the diocesan cemeteries. Look around Ravena and Coeymans; they’ve turned into virtual graveyards. Maybe Mr Dolan wants a professional graveyard manager in office so that cemetery management principles can be applied to Ravena and Coeymans, to Albany County. Well, so far Mr Touchette and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany haven’t managed any resurrections in the graveyards so we don’t have very high hopes that Mr Touchette, if elected to the Albany County Legislature, will be very successful in bringing life back to dead communities. Or does Dolan simply want Touchette to manage the county and our communities like a big cemetery? It’s really scary but then its Halloween time, isn’t it? No thanks, Mr Dolan, Mr Touchette!

The Touchette Touch

The Touchette Touch

More examples of how Dick Touchette is a slippery worm: Does anyone remember back in 2008, the Town of Coeymans had received a Small Cities Grant in the amount of $750,000.00 and Mr Touchette, then town councilman Touchette, moved to refuse the grant. Mr Youmans, then town councilman Youmans, seconded the motion. Coeymans didn’t receive the money. Thanks Mr Touchette and Mr Youmans.

Does anyone remember the recent lawsuits brought against the town of Coeymans, Coeymans Recycling, TCI, D. Trickey brought by Clearwater, Coeymans Heritage Society, and several citizens. Richart Touchette was one of those going after the town of Coeymans and the other defendants in that lawsuit. Apparently Mr Touchette got cold feet and lost his environmental principles when Mr Dolan approached him to run for office and but his name stayed on the list of plaintiffs. Talk about a major waffler! Richard “Dick” Touchette has no balls when it comes to sticking with the issues. But one thing is abundantly clear, our resident cemetery manager, Dick Touchette, is against anything that will bring prosperity or apparent prosperity to Coeymans. He and Youmans killed the small cities grant and Touchette and his mob are trying to kill jobs in Coeymans. Well, what would you expect from Dick Touchette — all he knows is managing cemeteries and is more familiar with dead things.

ani_rotating skull

Wouldn’t it be better and make more sense to just rally residents to enforce environmental vision and public safety through local government and demanding that the EPA, DEC, and Corps of Engineers do their business fairly and uniformly, rather than being tools of corruption, killing local small businesses? Yeah. That might take some integrity and some balls, and none of the democrap candidates have that equipment.

Yup

Yup! I’m a waffler, a ball-less wonder!
Yes, I am.

(Touchette & Youmans)

And what about Jim Youmans? Another big-time loser. Youmans took office when firebug Henry Traver was indicted for arson and had to resign from the office of Coeymans town supervisor. Legend has it that Youmans was such a vile jerk that during executive session poor Henry Traver had to have the Coeymans police on site in order to ensure that Youmans didn’t hurt someone (probably Henry). Youmans is a really poor excuse for an electable candidate. His inability to be a team player and the fact that he’s a schoolyard bully are big negatives and should keep him out of public office. And did you know that Youmans is a used car salesman? Really! He’s a used car salesman and we all know the reputation of the legendary used car salesman, don’t we? Well, Youmans gave the used car salesman of jokes galore the poor reputation they have. Do we need a used car salesman on the town board? Or the likes of Youmans? Hell NO!

Well, there you have it in a nutshell. The democrap choices for local government. Mr Dolan has no record to speak of except failures and absolutely no skills in town government. He’s proved also that he is a failure when it comes to choosing candidates for the democrap slate this November. We’ve shown above that Dolan’s choices have all been on the take in the past. What’s worse still is that Dolan’s democrap loser’s club are exactly those characters who played roles in exposing Coeymans supervisor candidate Phil Crandal’s corruption. What more needs to be said?

Well, there is more and that more is about “Matt-the-Mutt” Miller’s bid for election to the Albany County Legislature. We have a lot to say about that weasel’s arrogance and corruption and his history of abuse of his teacher’s job, his double-dipping, his questionable allegiances, and his overall crookery and corruption. It’s unimaginable that he would have any support in his bid for election but that support is likely coming from NYSUT, the teachers union. Matt Miller is the union’s bitch in RCS. He’ll be the teachers union’s bitch in the Albany County Legislature, where he’ll continue is unethical practices and corruption. More on the “Mutt”in our next article.

We Specialize in Rubbish Removal: A Perfect Record

We're cleaning up!

We’re cleaning up!

Since the inauguration of this blog as a reliable source of community information and as a catalyst for change-for-the-better of the communities in the R-C-S southern Albany county and northern Greene county regions, we have accumulated a long list of accomplishments, thanks to the contributions and support of the communities we serve. Here are just a few that we successfully pushed to rid our communities of trash:SUCCESSES%20starburst

  • John Bruno as Mayor of Ravena: He’s history.
  • We showed how Nancy Warner is a two-headed snake and hypocrite: She’s history but doesn’t know it yet.
  • Tom Boehm and his cronies on the Coeymans town board: He’s gone and so are they (rest to follow).
  • The dirty-hands-duo Dirty-Hands-Jerry Deluca and his sidekick Gregory “Dumpy-Dumplin'” Darlington: they’re both gone (but with their pensions, regrettably!).
  • The illegal and unlawful Ravena Health and Fitness Center (and its failure manager, Cathy Deluca): it’s bye-byes for the RHFC and Cathy Deluca (see below).
  • The Coeymans Police Department (but we do support keeping Chief P.J. McKenna in the capacity as law enforcement liaison to the Albany County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police; McKenna is a professional law enforcement officer with a great deal of experience and savvy.): it’s curtains for the CPD!
  • The Coeymans incestuous gang of dispatchers: they’re passé.
  • In New Baltimore, we worked to get rid of the democrap mob under Susan O’Rorke and get some new blood in New Baltimore town hall: we’re working to get some work out of the new egomaniacs in NB town hall now.
  • Also in New Baltimore, we worked to oust the former town clerk for alleged abuse of office: we ended up with an initial political appointee, Barbara Finke (NB town supervisor:Nick Dellisanti  “Republicans appoint republicans.” — That was a really bad response, Nick!) who ran unopposed and is now in office — Well, almost, Finke seems to be away, absent, on vacation more than she’s in the clerk’s office (but that’s fuel for another article): Bye-bye next election.
  • We exposed numerous local scandals in Ravena village hall including the incompetence of the village clerk (a Bruno appointee,Annette Demitraszek, and deputy-clerk Kristine Biernacki, Nancy Warner friends), the public works scandals and Henry Traver (we have some tidbits to share on Traver and his relationship with some of the hopeless hopefuls) and Sandy Debacco, the water scandals, the Ravena mayor and boardmember health insurance benefits scandal (full-time benes for less than part-time work!), and we’re still working on those.
  • In New Baltimore we exposed the scandals involving Denis Jordan, NB superintendent of highways, and his unlawful labor practices, his non-existing recordkeeping, his misuse of town resources.
  • In New Baltimore we exposed the problem of Joseph Tanner, animal control officer, being paid several thousands of dollars of taxpayer money while he works full time for the New York State Department of Transportation; he can’t possibly respond to animal control calls while working on a road crew!
  • An the list goes on and on and on. Just search this blog and get the facts! We’re working on some great exposés at this very time. Stay tuned!
"Dirty-Dumplin'" Darlington as Busdriver

“Dirty-Dumplin'” Darlington as Busdriver

And speaking of Gregory “Dirty-Dumplin'” Darlington, former chief of the Coeymans police department. That same dirty cop who conspired with Nancy Warner and then Ravena mayor John Bruno to harass and persecute Ravena kids, how is it that the “Dirty-Dumplin’” was recently observed driving an RCS school bus?!?! How can the RCS school board allow that weasel who was such a savage to our children only a year ago should now be have access to our children on their school buses? Where are you parents? What’s that pervert doing on the bus with your kids? Is the “Dirty Dumplin’” that hard up for a job? Won’t his fellow weasel Albany County District Attorney David Soares give him a job? Nope. Even David Soares isn’t that stupid. Only the RCS board of education can claim to be that stupid. Check out this Family Guy busdriver clip.

Not to be used to support the illegal money-pit, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center!!!

Not to be used to support the illegal money-pit, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center!!!

As for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center: The Ravena town board refused to fund the Ravena Heaps and Fatness Center in 2015. We certainly applauded that move but had to ask Why did it take them so long? Almost a year prior they admitted it was failing and was a money pit. At a recent Ravena village board meeting we were appalled to have heard that the Village was looking into getting county/state funds to keep the money-pit operating for another year, presumably to keep failure Cathy Deluca in a job. Where were they going to get the funds? Well, they expected to get money from the money confiscated from drug dealers and placed in a fund for supporting communities etc. The Ravena village board had better think again. Here’s Why?

  • We smell corruption and collusion in that announcement. Is that why we see Dirty-Hands-Jerry Decluca‘s New York State Association of Fire Chiefs official vehicle at Ravena town hall? Is he still misusing police information to shoe-horn his pet hippo into a secure position?
  • We smell Nancy Warner still trying to keep her biatch-buddy in a job but still at taxpayer expense! It’s not going to work, Nancy. That money you’re greedily eying is earmarked for worthwhile community projects, not to keep your friends in play-money!

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center is dead, and it’s going to stay that way!

According to the local rag, the Ravena News Herald, the Albany County Sheriff’s Department was “interested” in taking over the Ravena Heaps and Fatness money pit! That’s absolutely absurd! To think that Craig Apple or anyone in the Albany County Sheriff’s Department would seriously consider taking over that dump is absolutely scandalous and political suicide! Warning to Mr Apple: Stay clear of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center or face election ruin!

But according to that same report in the Ravena News Herald, Ravena hasn’t heard a peep from Mr Apple or anyone in his department regarding the alleged “interest.” Maybe there still is some sanity in Albany County.

Here’s our promise: If the Village of Ravena or anyone associated with the Village of Ravena even tries to submit a request for funds or grant money, especially from money confiscated from drug dealers, the shit will hit the fan big time. We will obtain all applications and the names of all persons involved and expose them all. We will contact all regional community-based organizations, non-profit community organizations, non-government organizations an create an avalanche that will bury Ravena village hall. Once we’ve gotten the support of regional organizations, we’ll use that support to demand investigations, audits, and prosecutions from the Office of the New York State Attorney General, the Office of the Comptroller, and others. So think again, Ravena, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center is dead, and it’s going to stay that way! And if the Albany County Sheriff is so asinine to allow himself to get involved in such a scandalous and corrupt situation, he’d better start updating his résumé because he’ll be political HISTORY in a New York minute, and be listed as a political suicide!

It’s bad enough that even a rumor is even circulating that any Albany County department would consider taking over the Ravena money pit but to think that the suggestion is that the Albany County Sheriff would be willing to redirect confiscated drug money or any public funds to the third Cathy-Deluca-failure is pure insanity. Note that Mr Apple, and note it well.

Warner and her political cronies to misuse public property for their political ambitions…What’s next, campaign signs in the windows of Ravena village hall?

electioneering

Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey represent all that is corrupt in Ravena — aided and abetted by Ravena “Mayor Mouse” Misuraca’s band of retarded sockpuppets. It’s an election year and the roaches are coming out big-time! Nancy Warner is flashing her fangs from her nag’s head, together with doddering mumbler Bill Bailey, “Mr Nasty” Jim Youmans, Graveyard Manager Rick Touchette, and several other failures. Nancy Warner is dead in the water but doesn’t know it. In fact, we were flabbergasted when we drove by the village gazebo during the village-wide yard sale and saw Nancy Warner, Bill Bailey, Rick Touchette all misusing public property in their electioneering! Misusing public property for party political campaigning is heavy duty unethical and illegal. That’s the same Nancy Warner who had the Coeymans police chasing local village kids when the kids were hanging out at the Gazebo. But it’s OK for Warner and her political cronies to misuse public property for their political ambitions. Right? WRONG! We’d also like to remind our readers, especially our Ravena readers, that it was Nancy Warner [with the support of Bill Bailey] who orchestrated the mindless scandal of creating the Ravena Health and Fitness Center — which we all now know was devouring more than $100,000 a year of Ravena taxpayer dollars before the Ravena board woke up and admitted it was a failure and a money pit —, and it was Nancy Warner, who hired known failure Cathy Deluca to be manager of the fitness center, and who ensured that Ravena village hall insider Robert Fisk managed to collect more than $40, 000 of Ravena taxpayer dollars for his used fitness equipment. And it’s that same Bill Bailey who wants to meter and charge Coeymans fire department for the water they use in responding to emergencies, putting out fires! And it’s the same Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey who want to turn off water to the hamlet of Coeymans. And, Yup!, it’s the same Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey who, for years, have been involved in the unlawful and improper water and sewer billing practices in Ravena. But now they’re looking for your votes! No Way José!

And let us remind RCS residents and taxpayers that it was Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey who upped the RCS Community Library’s rent an additional $600-700 a month to force the library to vacate the library space for the money pit Ravena Health and Fitness Center. And it was Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey along with former Mayor John Bruno and his puppets on the Ravena village board who were constantly threatening the RCS Community Library with eviction. Show us any other community in the civilized world that would do that to its community library!

Warner and Bailey: Illegal and unfair water and sewer billing, shadey bookkeeping, harassment of our kids, illegal and unethical campaign practices, abuse of the community library, supporters of the Cathy Deluca failure system a.k.a. the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, insider dealers. Do you still want to put them back in village hall?

Tom Dolan and Peter Masti of the Coeymans town board are also looking for election to political office. Tom Dolan is an abject failure and an embarrasment to the democrap party: he’s managed to lose his grip on every important issue and is waffler-in-chief on the Coeymans town board. Dolan has to go and like yesterday. He’s got a lot of negative baggage, too, like his alleged manipulation of voting through is Choices office. That’s going to follow him. And let’s not forget the favors he allegedly accepted from local town and village justices for his kids’ drinking and drug problems. He’s corrupt and is not above taking unethical and illegal favors.

Peter Masti misuses Holy Scripture because he misunderstands it — we don’t need to elect fanatics or more tunnel-vision in local government!

Now native Californian Peter Masti, who likes to remind readers of his many letters to the editor in the Troy Record that he’s a registered nurse, is a real dud. We’ve pubished some of his lunatic letters to the editor. Now we’d be the last to malign religion and spirituality, but Masti’s sense of god is perverse. He’s a literalist and fundamentalist (he uses the Bible as a weapon to control, that is, he misuses Holy Scripture because he misunderstands it.) He’s been an embarrassment on the Coeymans town board since he’s was elected. Fanatics and tunnel-vision have no place in our government and we need to start cleaning house at the local level.

"Cryptkeeper"Touchette Campaigning

“Cryptkeeper”Touchette Campaigning

And then there’s Rick Touchette. Touchette has a reputation for lying through is teeth but that’s no news in Ravena-Coeymans politics, much less in Albany democrap circles. We all know that Albany County is already a social and economic graveyard, and that Coeymans and Ravena are even deader. So it’s only natural that Rick Touchette, with his extensive credentials and experience in managing graveyards, should want to run for Albany County legislator. C’mon people, wake up and smell the decaying corpses we have running for public office. The irony of Touchette’s ambition as published in the Ravena News Herald (June 11, 2015) really made us laugh. Here’s a guy (Rick Touchette) whose entire experience is managing cemeteries and now he wants to legislate for Albany County. Now really, neighbors, isn’t that scarey? The Cryptkeeper wants to be your legislator!

Rick Touchette's career is managing cemeteries. Like Ravena/Coeymans, Albany?

Rick Touchette’s career is managing cemeteries. Like Ravena/Coeymans, Albany?

For some years now Touchette has been the executive director of the Albany [Roman Catholic] Diocesan Cemeteries, and if you’ve ever had to deal with that bunch of anal freaks, you’d steer well clear of Touchette.

Coeymans: Urgent Need for Blood!!! Here’s why…

Update: An inspection of the signs we reported to be blocking visibility at the intersection of Main St/Church St (Rt 143) and Westerlo St in the Hamlet of Coeymans shows that the offending signs have been rearranged following our report. We are pleased to note that Ravena/Coeymans officials read this blog and take its advice to heart. Maybe next time the geniuses will use their heads and save some trouble and embarrassment.

The Editor’s Summer Reading Recommendation: George Orwell’s novel, 1984. More on why in an upcoming article. View one of the original “1984” b/w film versions, made in 1956, at [click on the link ⇒]  “Original 1984” (or an original b/w version made in [click on the link⇒] “1954 1984“)or the trailer for the 1984 remake at [click on the link⇒] 1984 “1984”. The movie is incredibly prophetic and wakes us up to what’s actually happening today! Watch it or read the book and let us know what you think!

George Orwell’s 1984. Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, Orwell’s narrative is timelier than ever. 1984 presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions—a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time.

How typical! Right in front of the Coeymans Firehouse/Rescue building the very hazardous intersection of Main/Church Street (RT 143) and Westerlo Street in Coeymans Hamlet, right across from the Pieter B. Coeymans elementary school and right in front of the Coeymans Fire Company, some bunch of morons have cluttered the corner with signs that make it virtually impossible to see oncoming traffic on Main Street! Of course they need more blood! Do you think they could obstruct visibility any more completely?

We'd to know who the morons are who have cluttered this already hazardous intersection! Is this job security for the Coeymans Fire Department and the Rescue Squad? Do you wonder that they urgently need blood?

We’d to know who the morons are who have cluttered this already hazardous intersection! Is this job security for the Coeymans Fire Department and the Rescue Squad?
Do you wonder that they urgently need blood?

Considering that Coeymans has a Coeymans Fire Company and Coeymans Rescue Squad. And considering that Coeymans has a police department, it’s incredible that none of these “public safety” groups has had the brains to remove these signs from the intersection to allow motorists to have a clear view of traffic and to safely enter Main/Church Street (Rt 143)! What a bunch of clowns!

Well, now the problem arises for Coeymans residents that when an accident does happen, and the lawsuits start coming in, we can safely say that the town of Coeymans’ liability will be invoked because of its stupidity and indifference in allowing the signs to be placed in such a position as to obstruct visibility and to adversely affect motorist safety. We’ll be watching.

Who are the morons who put all those signs on that corner, we’d like to know! And PUHLEEZ get some class; Coeymans Landing Celebration on the back of a cardboard box?!?! Can’t you people afford to at least get a piece of sign board? What a bunch of hicks!

Coeymans gets the Dumbass Award this time!

Stay tuned! We’ll be publishing the scandalous abuse of the public trust by the Ravena village board and their presumption to give themselves full healthcare benefits at the cost of thousands a month.

Resident SLAMS!!! Ravena Trustless Nancy Warner

We recently published an email sent by Nancy Warner to a local resident unlawfully denying him his rights to access information under the New York State Freedom of Information Law, and telling him he’s “wasting taxpayer money.” We pointed out in our article that Warner was way out of line and was the last one who should be telling anyone they’re wasting taxpayer money. Maybe Warner feels that stealing taxpayer money is better than wasting it, after all Nancy Warner knows how to do both. But back to the subject of this article:

RAVENA RESIDENT SLAMS NANCY WARNER

ouch_gotcha

Ravena Resident Pokes Nancy Warner in the Eye. OUCH!

Far from being a trustee, Nancy Warner should be a “Trustless” but you can trust Warner to grab any moment to act like she’s mayor of Ravena. She’s not and this resident tells her so. Read on…

Dear Trustee Warner:

Thank you for your kind but inappropriate email response of 4/29/15. While you are entitled to your personal opinions, you would be well advised to avoid abrogating authorities to yourself that are not yours to exercise. You do not have the implied or explicit authority in your present purview to respond to or to deliberate unilaterally and independently of the Village Board on matters concerning the instant subject matter. Furthermore, you are egregiously overreaching any implicit or explicit authorities when you attempt to limit or to deny me the rights clearly established under the provisions of the New York State Pubic Officers Law (a.k.a. the NYS Freedom of Information Law or “F.O.I.L.”) and any such attempt, implicit or worse still explicit, as represented by your e-mail, may expose you and the Village of Ravena to investigation or even prosecution. Need I remind you at this point of the current investigation relating to the Village Board’s unlawful abuse of power in the [name redacted but it concerns the Ravena Planning Board] case? You need to learn to put a lid on it and to control your megalomaniac ego, Ms. Warner.

At the risk of repeating myself, you had no business whatsoever and no authority whatsoever to arrogantly assume a position not yours by responding unilaterally and without mandate to an inquiry not in your purview. You have repeatedly failed to provide any documentation on how my building went from four to five units. You have never provided documentation with my signature (since none exists), I have repeatedly questioned how and when I went to from four to five units, which is your (Village of Ravena) basis for my water/sewer billing. One has to wonder who you think you are. Better still, one has to remind you who you are; you tend to forget. You are an elected officer of the Village of Ravena and a servant of the residents and community of Ravena. You are nothing more but may be much less, depending on one’s perspective.

You were way out of line in your response to my email. (I was simply requesting who and when will the village attorney contact me from a previous e-mail sent from the village to me six weeks ago; in short a follow up).   The Mayor, and Mr. Mahler and Mr. Coye are the trustees overseeing the water/sewer/building departments, and the zoning/planning  boards respectively.  When it is time to discuss any issue, I will contact them first. Obviously, you are not on those committees or boards and accordingly you have no business injecting yourself into matters concerning them unless explicitly invited to do so; you have not been so invited to my knowledge.

You appear to need a reminder that village elected officers and village staff have obligations and duties to the public under their oaths of office. This is undisputed fact and has been laid down clearly in town and village law, public officers law, administrative law, and yes, in criminal law.  As you are aware, “misprision”  requires one to report crime or a violation of law; you, especially as a public servant, are obligated to report unlawful or illegal activity or or risk prosecution yourself, even if that illegal or unlawful activity is your own. I realize that’s a very regrettable situation you may find yourself in but you yourself are to blame. Your history and record of abuse of office and abuse of citizens’ protected rights is long and documented. You would be well advised to cease and desist with immediate effect your unlawful interference and obstruction of other village employees in their diligent, even if it is somewhat clumsy, execution of their duties and responsibilities under the law. In other words, Ms. Warner, back off and butt out. Should I have an issue with village staff, I shall take it up with them on an informal amicable basis; as I have for the past 25 years.  Should that approach fail,  I shall address and discuss any such issues with the Chief Executive Officer of the Village of Ravena, the Mayor, who I believe continues to be Mr. William Misuraca, not YOU.

Should you have any questions regarding this communication, please do not hesitate to appropriately, that is, within the limits of your authority, to contact me. I shall be pleased to discuss anything you may find difficult to understand or impossible to grasp; simply send me a courteous, civil e-mail.

In the meantime, please accept my sincere appreciation of your most recent communication; I indeed appreciate it for what it is.

[Name withheld by request]

OUCH!!! You been had, Nancy Warner!!!

And BRAVO for you, Ravena resident and taxpayer!!! More of your neighbors should follow your example. Their lives might improve dramatically!

Bravo for You! Sock It to her The Editor

We might be about to bust the Ravena Incest Club wide open!

We’re not done yet with the scandal behind the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and some of the unlawful finagling that went on using Ravena taxpayer money, public funds. We have a village of Ravena document that appears to split the village payment of $40,000 for the used fitness equipment for Cathy DELUCA’s pigpen. It appears that one check was made out to the NATIONAL BANK OF COXSACKIE in the amount of $18,000.00 and the other check was made out to Bob Fisk’s wife/concubine, Deborah FARHRBACH.  But the Bill of Sale signed by Deborah FAHRBACH and notarized by Michael Biscone’s secretary, Sharon E. DEWSBURY, clearly states that Fahrbach and Fisk are the “legal owners of the equipment” and that there are “no liens or encumbrances” on the equipment. If all that is true and Deborah FAHRBACH wasn’t perjuring herself by making a false oath, something simply doesn’t add up here. Question is: if . was the seller of the used fitness equipment, why did two checks have to be made out? One was a check made out to the National Bank of Coxsackie and the other to Fahrbach? Michael BISCONE is the attorney for National Bank of Coxsackie (Ravena) and acts also as Ravena village attorney. Was Michael BISCONE Bob Fisk’s or Fahrbach’s attorney, too? Is that why Biscone’s secretary notarized the Bill of Sale for the used equipment? Could it be that Robert FISK (a Persico on his mother’s side) owed the NATIONAL BANK OF COXSACKIE a note on the equipment the bank manager — at the time, Donna BISCONE —, would look bad if there were a bad debt? If that were so, then Fahrbach did perjure herself when she stated that Fahrbach and Fisk were the legal owners and that there were no liens or encumbrances on the equipment. What if Fisk had IRS tax liens in 2000 and bad credit, and had to get out from and under what was owed? So they went to the “cookie jar” (Ravena taxpayers money) to get some honey-money? So  do we have the PERSICO and BISCONE clans working together. Former mayor John T. BRUNO was hot on getting the RCS Community Library out of the building and in correspondence notes that his cousin, Josephine BRUNO (Prudential Realty), was brokering the deal. and was pushing to get the village of Ravena to get the equipment out of the building on 172 Main Street, Ravena. Nancy WARNER is a BISCONE, in addition to Donna BISCONE (retired); a National Bank of Coxsackie manager/director, Donald PERSICO, is apparently one of the PERSICO clan. Add Michael BISCONE, who is attorney for the village of Ravena AND for the National Bank of Coxsackie, and may have represented Bob FISK, too. But Fisk is related through is mother to the Persicos of Ravena, too. Looks like we might be on to something here. This is HOT! So stay tuned! We might be about to bust the Ravena Incest Club wide open! (Don’t relax yet, Jerry PERRINE, Larry CONRAD. We’re not done with you yet, either.)

Ravena gives Clerk-Treasurer Private Lessons @ $310/hour!!!

The Village of Ravena, that is, Nancy Warner, has hired an Albany accounting consulting firm, SaxBST, to provide Quickbooks training to Ravena Clerk-Treasurer Annette  Demitraszek paying the consultant doing the training, Lynda P. Smith, $175.00/hour and the other consultant, a SaxBST partner, Willard G. Reynolds, $310.00/hour. Question is: Why isn’t the village of Ravena using some of the less expensive training available? Question is: Why does the village of Ravena have to spend $18,000 for the first year fee to have SaxBST train Demitraszek when someone already with the knowledge should have been hired? Question is: Why hasn’t Nancy Warner, who claims to have 30 years in Ravena village hall training her so-called clerk-treasurers? Question is: If Nancy Warner is so damned concerned about “wasting taxpayer dollars” why is she hiring SaxBST at the rate of $300.00/hour?

Village of Ravena Accounting Principal

Village of Ravena Accounting Principle

Why is Ravena Paying $310.00/hour or $18,000 a Year to Provide Private Lessons for the Clerk-Treasurer?

Nancy Warner, the Ravena village trustee, who is so concerned about wasting taxpayer money when responding to residents’ requests or problems, despite her gung-ho support of the money pit Ravena Health and Fitness Center that devoured more than $200,000 of taxpayer money, while paying fitness-center virus Cathy Deluca more than $60,000 of that money to run yet another fitness center into oblivion, has done it again!

We have received paperwork that shows that Nancy Warner has contracted an outside consultant firm to train her two sockpuppets, Annette Demitraszek and Kristine Biernacki, how to use  Quickbooks accounting software. That’s all well and good but here’s where it gets to be a scandal:

Nancy Warner and her cronies on the Ravena village board headed by Ravena mayor Bill “Mouse” Misuraca, Joel Coye, Keith Mahler and Bill Bailey, are spending what looks like $18,000 at a rate of $300.00/hour to the consultant firm to train the gals on site at the Ravena Village Hall.

We’re not only questioning the wisdom and the logic behind spending that kind of money on consultant fees, we’ve got an even better question for Nancy Warner: If you’ve been on board at Ravena village hall for more than 30 years, earlier as village clerk and then as village trustee, this “training” should have been done way back then. What this means is that until now, village accounting and bookkeeping was not being done correctly (the Comptroller’s audits have already pointed this fact out on several occasions). Why is it that village staff are being trained now and at such great cost to taxpayers? Accounting practices and laws don’t change over night; if the state does change practices and laws for villages and towns, they send out bulletins and advisories announcing the pending changes. Where was Ravena village administration when all of this was happening, Nancy? Bill Bailey? Were you asleep on watch? Wasn’t this your responsibility, Nancy Warner?

Yeah! Nancy. That's what we thought your answer would be!

Yeah! Nancy. That’s what we thought your answer would be!

Now, we know you’re just dying to know where the money for this irresponsible and insane spending spree is coming from, so we’d like to tell you.

The firm providing the training is the Albany accounting, taxation, and advisory firm, SaxBST, located on Computer Drive. They don’t necessarily provide “training” but are providing their services as consultants (consultants are astronomically more expensive than mere “trainers”). One of the partners, Willard J. Reynolds, who is providing “services” bills at the rate of $310.00/hour. The other “trainer”, Lynda P. Smith, who isn’t even listed on the SaxBST site, bills at a rate of $170.00/hour.
According to the papers we have received, per a document stamped “Received” by the “Town Clerk” on April 24, 2015, the Village of Ravena was billed $5,550.00 on November 30, 2014 for a meeting with “the mayor, 2 board members, Annette.” That invoice shows the proposed first year fee of $18,000 (less the $5,550 billed, leaving a balance of $12,450). The village of Ravena was billed $2,867.00 on December 31, 2014 for “meetings with Annette” and “in-office discussions and research” by Smith (15 hours) and Reynolds (3/4 of an hour). The balance of the first year fee on December 31, 2014 was $9,583.00. We can’t seem to locate the line item for these expenses in the 2015-16 Ravena Village Budget, so where’s the balance supposed to coming from?

Back to where the money was coming from to pay this extravagance. The SaxBST invoice for $5550.00 was vouchered and processed for payment on or around December 15, 2014. The SaxBST invoice for $2867.00 was received by the Village of Ravena on January 12, 2006, and approved for payment.

So where is the village of Ravena, Nancy Warner, finding the cash to pay for all of this. Well, we didn’t have to look far. All we had to do is look on the payment vouchers and then at the line items in the Village of Ravena budget, and match them up. You see, Nancy Warner and the village of Ravena board are tapping several other accounts to get their hands on the money. For example, to pay the $5550.00 they used $3885.00 from line item A1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), $832.00 from line item F1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), and $832.00 from line item G1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services). To pay the $2867.00 they used $2006.90 from line item A1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), $430.00 from line item F1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), and $430.00 from line item G1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services). They just barely made it in the 2014-15 budget but it doesn’t appear that they will in the 2015-16 budget because two of the line items: F1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services) and G1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services) don’t appear in that budget. So our question is: Where are they going to get the balance of more than $9,000 to cover the outstanding balance for the year’s SaxBST fees?

Now get this: Nancy Warner is the contact person shown on the correspondence from SaxBST. Annette Demitraszek, the assistant clerk-treasurer, a Bruno appointee and a Misuraca re-appointee, official Nancy-Warner-sockpuppet, is the village employee, the “authorized official” who is certifying and approving the expenditure. Now isn’t that delicious: Nancy Warner, who is so concerned about wasting taxpayer dollars, is having her cronies privately trained on site, on village time by consultants billing at the rate of $175/h and $310/hour!!! And guess who is certifying and approving the payment of the fat invoices? None other than the very person receiving the training and benefits: Annette Demitraszek, village of Ravena clerk-treasurer! Anybody smell a rat yet?

About $20 from Amazon or Barnes&Noble!

About $20 from Amazon or Barnes&Noble!

So we did a little research on Quickbooks training. You can get a 2-day mastery course for $499.00  and do it on line with Intuit, who has trained more than 2 million government and business clients and for $999.99 you can become a Quickbooks VIP member and enjoy extended benefits . We won’t go into the benefits of these programs but will mention that local community colleges have ongoing courses for Quickbooks in their continuing education programs. Why didn’t the dumbasses in Ravena village hall consider any of these options? Because it’s easier to sit on their fat asses in village hall and spend Ravena taxpayer’s dollars. That’s why.

Better still, buy the Quickbooks for Dummies — if Demitrazek and the Ravena village board can qualify as dumbasses, they’ll ace the dummies course —, available from Amazon or Barnes&Noble for the outrageous price of $20.00. Now why didn’t Nancy Warner think of that?

We’d also like to speculate that there’s something in this wild spending to benefit someone in village hall. Why would Ravena’s elected officials be so irresponsible and expose themselves to such scandalous ridicule if they weren’t getting something big in return. What’s in it for Nancy Warner, we’d like to ask? It just wouldn’t make sense being so irresponsible so openly if they weren’t getting something considerable in return. Kickbacks? Favors? We do know that Annette Demitraszek is walking away with knowledge obtained in private lessons by some pretty pricey tutors, and she’s doing it on your tab. It’ll look good on her résumé when she goes job hunting when Ravena taxpayers demand she be fired, and Nancy Warner’s brought up on charges.

Now don’t you think you should be attending village of Ravena village board meetings and asking some questions about how your money is being spent?
