05/05/08 - Illegally Apointed Police Captain Michael Pacewicz Has Probably Cost The Single Family Homeowners Of Greenwich One Million Dollars



Town Hall Is Throwing Money To The Wind

Cop case to top $500000

In four years of litigation culminating in a high-stakes Connecticut Supreme Court hearing last month, the town has spent more than $500,000 on legal bills in its battle with a Greenwich policeman who sued it for violating his rights when it failed to promote him to captain, according to figures provided by Town Attorney John Wayne Fox said....

...The town is appealing the civil verdict promoting Captain Michael Pacewicz to lieutenant. The verdict has not been implemented pending the appeal. Honulik outscored Pacewicz on a promotion exam. Since 2004, when the suit was filed, the town has spent $560,000 on its own legal fees in the case, hiring Stamford attorneys Robin Frederick and Sheila Huddleston to represent it in the case and Bridgeport attorney William Kupinse to represent Pacewicz, Fox said....

...The bill doesn't include legal bills in the $400,000 to $500,000 range for Honulik that the town would be obligated to pay if Honulik prevails, according to Kathryn Emmett, Honulik's Stamford-based attorney.
.

...In September, Superior Court Judge Michael Shay ruled in Honulik's favor, promoting him to captain and finding that the town broke labor law by departing from its long-running practice of promoting the top scorer on police promotional exams....
for Honulik that the town would be obligated to pay if Honulik prevails, according to Kathryn Emmett, Honulik's Stamford-based attorney....

Comment:

This is such a profound example of the poor leadership displayed during Lash's tenure.

How unfortunate it was that the Jim Lash illegally put someone like Michael Pacewicz into such an important position.

Michael Pacewicz is not a man of integrity and I am he will not do what is right and give up his illegal appointment to Police Captain.

Michael Pacewicz should stop dragging this thing out - give the right man his promotion and lets move on. This has cost the TAXPAYERS a considerable amount of money and caused disruption in the police department.

Its about time the Town look at new internal legal council. For one, why do we have our own lawyers when we must go hire an expensive firm like Day Pitney (when we lose every time anyway) and two they seem to be giving poor legal advise anyway!

Why are we paying Town Attorney John Wayne Fox $12,500 a month anyway?

This government spending at its best.

If you ran your household or business like local, state, or federal governments do you would be broke and out of business.

If Jim Lash and Town Attorney wanted changes in the way to promote police supervisors then they should have negotiated it with the unions.

This is Greenwich Republican Politics At It's Worse.

As to the question of:

"Why did Jim Lash violate the law for Michael Pacewicz?"

Greenwich is Greenwich. Greenwich does not have to follow the rules like everyone else in the world, because WE ARE GREENWICH...It's an attitude thing, plain and simple...


As to the question of:

"How can we put an end to this madness?"

One answer is to get rid of Michael Pacewicz just like we got rid of Jim Lash.

Another easy answer...All Greenwich has to do is dig deeper into the bottomless money pit called the single family homeowners pockets and they can drag these things out for as long as John Wayne Fox wants to...

As to this issue with Mr. Honulik:

If John Wayne Fox wanted changes in the towns hiring and promotional actions, then he should have had the town negotiate these matters properly in the first place.

John Wayne Fox did not properly advise the town to list all the steps and factors that they want to base their decisions on in the original job description postings up front.

John Wayne Fox should have properly advised the town not change the way they make their decision, after the fact, when Michael "I am Lash's Favorite Candidate" Pacewicz does not place where they wanted him to.

Michael Pacewicz's illegal appointment has not been fair to anyone involved.

John Wayne Fox's bad legal advice was not fair to the Police Department, not fair to Mr. Honulik, and certainly not fair to the single family home owners that have to foot the bill for all this foolishness.

05/05/08 - More censorship In Greenwich - Reader Submitted Comments: “... a dissenting voice to shut up.”


"...a dissenting voice to shut up."

And even more so:

From the current Chairman of the Greenwich Community Television
Committee, Stuart Reider:

"Democracy Now and the program of Rye pundits don't meet the
criteria we have established"

You will notice that Greenwich Community Television Channel 79 is no
longer the news program "Democracy Now!"

(http://www.democracynow.org).

The decision to cancel it was not made by any committee or by complaints to the First Selectman's office, but by a single individual who, during a cocktail conversation, heard someone say they didn't like the program.

Just another example of "The answer in Greenwich always seems to be to try and get a dissenting voice to shut up."

We need to stop political censorship in Greenwich.

Censorship
exists when a government conceals information from its citizens. Basically, the logic is that if the people don’t have enough information, they won’t be able to hold a government or political party accountable. It is also the suppression of views that are contrary to those of the government in power.

Most democracies condemn political censorship, but some privately endorse it.

The word censorship comes from the Latin word censor, the job of two Romans whose duty was to supervise public behaviour and morals, hence 'censoring' the way people acted back then.

Censorship is the suppression of speech or deletion of communicative material which may be considered objectionable, harmful or sensitive, as determined by a censor. Censorship is the act or practice of removing material from things we encounter every day.

05/05/08 - Comments About Greenwich Schools Banning Boy Scouts Recruiting


Boy Scout Decision Causes Some Noise

Please see:

05/04/08 - Shame On Sternberg - "It's been going on for 70 years. What's changed?" Selectman Peter Crumbine said.


holy cow says


what do you consider "actual classwork"?......civics figure in there, at all?.....how to be a good citizen?.....how to disagree in a CIVIL manner?.....how in the world do you consider just an intro to boy scouts a waste of time?....maybe if there were more boy scouts and girls scouts, there'd be less of a need for them "birthin' classes" that he nea loves to call "educational"!!!

half agree says

Do the Girl Scouts have open access, or have they been limited to after school?

ymz says

Tthe Supt. realizes that Boy Scouts ofAmerica, as an oranization, will not hold harmless. Consider the ramifications of that for the district and the taxpaying community. BSA will have to do what every other organization does and make after school arrangements. Who sponsors those local packs? Do their officers know that they are not held harmless in the event of a problem, accident etc? Hopefully those officers have backgrounded and checked driver licenses, insurance, driving records etc. of all the adults who'll be driving the kids anywhere.

Doors of Perception says

The Boy Scouts of America are a moral backbone of this country. While liberals with their limp-wristed mentality continue to try to condemn them & what they stand for, they quietly continue in the face of idiocy & forge ahead to help produce a positive moral fiber for the male youth of this country, as I'm sure the the Girl Scouts also try to do with the female gender. Equality for all is necessary,

Senior Boy Scout says

Hurrah to the First Selectman, he is seeing clearly

holy cow says

Good Lord!!.....you mean to tell me that every minute of every class day is spent on teaching reading, writing,'rithmatic, science and math?......how about art?, music?, sex ed?.....shouldn't those be "alternatives" offered AFTER school?......let's call a spade a spade....this jamoke of a superintendent is trying to curtail the boys scouts because of their stance on same-sexers!.....if yer going to "ban" them, let's have the courage to call it what it is....before you know it, they'll want prayer, or even a few seconds of private, personal meditation in schools.....or the pledge of allegiance!!!!....and we all know the horrors of prayer and the pledge.....wait a minute!.....once those two elements were eliminated from public schools, haven't our schools (and society) been in a steady decline to where we have after-school "gay" clubs and 15-year old disney icons being photographed inappropriately?....so be careful greenwich!!!....wouldn't want those boy scout ethics of honesty, courtesy, service to the community and loyalty being spread to the youth of your great town!

MAG in NM (Newington, CT) says

f no other private club has such access, then neither should the Boy Scouts (my brothers were Scouts, and my father was a Scout Master, before anyone tells me I don't know anything about them). If one such group gets it, they'll all want it, and the kids won't have time for actual class work.

And, yes, the Boy Scouts are a private club. They've claimed that themselves to permit them to discriminate against certain groups they don't want in their membership.

This is only making all groups play by the same rules. It's an end to the unfair favoritism that has existed for decades. If you don't like that, try to imagine yourself in the shoes of a girl in that class who has to listen to that pep talk about an organization she can't join.

Nutmegger says

The boy scouts are a homophobic cult. They should be banned totally never mind just from the schools.

what did you expect says

This is what you get for hiring a liberal to run a school system.

Liberalism is a mental disorder.

Also keep in mind says

Boy Scouts of America is considered a "Christian" organization.
I think the superintendant is doing the right thing. She didn't bar them from presenting...just from doing it during class time. At least she is treating BSA liket any other community group and not offering preferencial treatment.

Alison says

The Girl Scouts do not recruit during school hours. Recruiting occurs during open house. We are allowed to have flyers available at the school, not posted but are given to the school administrators. The decsion is a sound one, and should not be questioned.

Bruce Funston says

Time for a Greenwich Boy Scout Meeting in front of Ms Sternbergs' house. Look at the large number of Eagle Scouts in town, a lot working for the town.

BigO says

Until the BSA changes its policy of discrimination against gays and atheists they should be barred from public schools altogether.

Swan Song For A Good Man And A Bad Editor

Please see:

05/04/07 - Joe Pisani, Editor Of Greenwich Time, Has Been Fired By The Paper's New Owner


Meg Lane Of New Canaan says


This is terrible news! I am sad to hear that one of the good guys is waving the white flag. So now what are we left? A crew with no real captain to speak of and readers who may have to turn to...... tv? Wah! I am disappointed.

Mrs VJ Martini says

I am sure I speak for many when I say how sorry I am to see Joe Pasani leave the Advocate. He was a wonderful Editor. The Sunday editorial said it well. Lots of changes for us who have loved the Advocate for many years. We who have enjoyed his column will miss him most. Good Luck and God Bless Joe, it won't be the same with out you !!!

Donald Currie says

I remember Mr. Pisani teaching 8th grade religion and English at Greenwich Catholic Middle School. Even at that young age, I was impressed by the way he handled a bunch of rowdy teens. I could sense his inner calmness and belief that what he was doing was important.

I never had the opportunity to thank him for his guidance and kindness during those tough teen years. I believe Mr. Pisani helped make me thae man and more importantly the father I am today.

Under Joe's guidance, the Advocate did cover our local issues as well as possible and never ever became part of the sensationalized tabloid "journalism" craze. For that, he deserves a ton of credit and our gratitude.

Thank you, Mr. Pisani....... for everything.

John Roman III says

Another cry in the wilderness for local media ownership. As it goes, so goes the commitment to inform and the obligation to hold accountable. Greenwich Time and The Advocate have been diminished. Just as once influential radio stations WSTC and WNLK have only been able to do less with less, the fabric of the communities served by these newspapers will fray and weaken as they become mere commodities.

Weirdo says


Care to bet who they'll name editor ... Pisani has done such a good job turning the Greenwich Time into a laughing stock ....The new owners will need to make sure that the new editor is up for the challenge of continuing Pisani's mission to send these two papers into the toilet.

Anonymous says

The paper has gone downhill to the point that it's subteranean now. I have to wear an oxygen mask everytime I read it because of all the noxious fumes. They ought to put a warning label on the front page alerting readers to read the paper at their own risk since reading it has been known to cause retardation and paranoid delusions.

Nick Sartori says

I have never met Mr Pisani, never spoken to him, never corresponded by mail or electronically. But for several years I have made it a Friday night "must" to read his weekly editorial. From his writings, it has been clear to me that this is a good, decent, thoughtful man. No need to say more about a person than that. Best of luck to him.
