05/08/08 - Greenwich Public Schools Lied To Parents When They Tried To Blame The Hamilton Avenue Modular Contamination On The Factory


Greenwich Time Reporters Are Too Scared To See, Hear or Say What Happened At The Contaminated Modular Classrooms

Here Is Something That You Won't Read In The Greenwich Time


Navigant Consulting's Presentation to Board of Education entitled
Temporary Classroom at WMS...


Clearly Shows That School Administrators And The Town Of Greenwich Building Department Did Not Make Sure That The Contaminated Modular Met Local Building Codes.

Greenwich Public School's Drawing Of The Contaminated Modular Classrooms Are "Incomplete And Uncoordinated".

Navigant Consulting Clearly States:

"Design errors and omissions were a contributing factor in the development of mold in the building overhangs."

How did the Greenwich Time Miss Navigant Consultings Report?

It looks like the Greenwich Time reporters were too busy waiting for a press release from Susan Wallerstein, Assistant Superintendent for business.

We are sure that Ms. Wallerstein's press release will tell us why the contaminated classrooms did not meet local building codes.

We are also sure that Ms. Wallerstein will clearly explain why her departments drawings of the contaminated modular classrooms are incomplete and uncoordinated.

We are also sure Ms. Wallerstien's press release will truthfully explain how her department's design errors and omissions were a contributing factor in the contamination of the modular classrooms.

Once Ms. Wallerstein's press release arrives at the Greenwich Time, then they will run it through the spell checker and publish it on the front page.

Time and Time Again Greenwich Residents Have Had To Rely On Blogers To Bring Them The News About What Is Going On In And Around Greenwich.

Where is the investigative Reporting?


Where are the Freedom Of Information requests from hard nosed reporters?

Why is the Greenwich press affraid of Betty and the BOE?

How many parents and single family home owners of Greenwich remember this news headline.....

03/12/08 No mold hazard found at Ham Ave. modulars (Greenwich Time)

This story reminds one of a Greenwich Public School Press Release being run through a spell checker before being published on the front page.

Why can't Greenwich newspaper reporters be fearless when confronting the Board Of Education?


Has a Greenwich Time reporter been brave enough to go up to The Greenwich Fire Chief or Greenwich Building Inspector and ask.....

"How did you let children occupy a modular classroom that did not met local building codes?" Has a Greenwich Time reporter been brave enough to file even one Freedom Of information request about the contaminated modular classrooms?

Now you know why Bill Clark at the Greenwich Gossip Blog calls the newspaper the "Yellowich Time"

O5/08/08 - Stamford Advocate / Yellowich Time Once Again Can't Take The Heat


The comments were removed by the ...

...all of the above?

Newspaper Decides To Shoot The Messenger


Stamford Advocate Website Steps Up Web Media, Bans StationStops.com From Comments (?)

This article is critical of the Stamford Advocate family of websites, and its not my first. However, it is specifically critical, and it is constructive criticism....

...
the story about the Beating and Robbery At Riverside Walgreens still does not have the security cam photos (we have them here).

This last story is especially unfortunate, as the sister of the victim in the case specifically commented on the article on their website, asking why Greenwich Time had not included the pictures.

Previously, I had commented on these stories on the Stamford Advocate website and let their confused readers know that I had the images discussed on my website. However, my comments seem to not be appearing on the Stamford Advocate website anymore :( I don’t know if they have banned me or its simply a fluke...

...From the email response from Stamford Advocate Marketing Services, it would seem that the issue is a workflow problem, where editors submit the text copy and rely on web producers to follow through with media prior to website publication...

...when a large newspaper chain like the Stamford Advocate/Greenwich Time/Norwalk Advocate will not consistently publish photographs of persons wanted by local police on their website, they are really dropping the ball on a longstanding public service in the newspaper community...

...If the Stamford Advocate wants to keep their own photographs limited to print publication, thats fine and entirely their right to do so. However, when they are provided photos by public officials which need to be widely distributed in order to be of any use to the local police, they are failing their community by not publishing them on their website in a consistent and timely manner.

Teardown Controversy

Continues

Russian Billionaire Outrages Greenwich With Supermansion
By Cher


There has been some recent controversy about a massive project that involves an $18M teardown on Simmons Lane in Greenwich, CT. I found a link to this interesting article that not only discusses the plans for the 27000 SF estate, ...

... the correct Russian description for “outrageous”, but my limited dictionary here shows me that the word defining “big” is being expressed as большой. Of course Andrei will have to confirm this for me.

This is the house that supposedly has plans for 26 toilets. I suppose that by having 26 toilets, one should be able to flush large amounts of money down them most efficiently.

GI HELMETS and DESIGNER GEAR SHARE THE B.E.S.T-DRESSED SPOTLIGHT

May 9 Event to Raise Awareness and Support to Protect the Front-Line Soldiers Who Protect Us

(Greenwich, CT – May 6, 2008) Helmets that improve the chances that frontline troops will make it home alive and in one piece. Designer clothes and accessories from the likes of Heidi Weisel, Nicole Miller and Robert Mark. These would seem to be an odd fit. But they share common ground: having the best available gear and clothing for the occasion - be it in Basra, Baghdad, the Afghani mountains, or Greenwich, CT. And on Friday, May 9, they’ll also share the spotlight at SFTT’s B.E.S.T. (Best Equipment in Support of the Troops) cocktail reception and benefit auction at Richards of Greenwich.

The B.E.S.T. benefit is committed to seeing that U.S. soldiers – young men and women – are not sent to the frontlines of Iraq and other hotspots with substandard government-issue basic personal combat gear – from body armor to helmet inner liners made of Astroturf-like material that slips and scratches to jam-prone rifles to mission-inappropriate combat boots - when better equipment that could reduce or prevent serious injury or death is available.

B.E.S.T. will be held Friday May 9, 6:30 PM to 9 PM, at Richards, 359 Greenwich Avenue, Greenwich immediately following the David Hackworth Day salute (6PM) in front of the Greenwich Post Office

Hosted by SFTT Chair, author and film producer Eilhys England Hackworth of Greenwich and Scott Mitchell of Richards, B.E.S.T. (Best Equipment to Support the Troops) pays tribute to the late Col. David “Hack” Hackworth, by raising funds to protect the troops ‘out at the tip of the spear’ that he loved and continues to fight for through his nonpartisan, apolitical, nonprofit legacy foundation SFTT.

Former US Senator) Bob Kerry, Geraldo Rivera, Catherine Crier, Richard Blumenthal, and Jim Lash are honorary co-chairs for the evening. Event Committee Chair is Shelly Tretter Lynch of Greenwich. To RSVP or receive information on SFTT and B.E.S.T., visit www.sftt.org or call 203-629-0288.

Cocktail Reception

Behind the gourmet cocktail fare and pastries, prepared and donated by L’escale Executive Chef Francois Kwaku-Dongo and Pastry Chef Wendy Laurent and auction activity led by Sotheby’s senior auctioneer C. Hugh Hildesley is the basic notion that the brave young men and women serving on the front lines deserve the best available personal combat gear to make it home alive and in one piece.

Silent and Live Auctions for the B.E.S.T. A live auction featuring Sotheby senior auctioneer C. Hugh Hildesley will be a highlight. It will be complemented by a silent auction. Dozens of items will be up for bid: a walk on in “Law Abiding Citizens,” with “The 300” star Gerard Butler; Hamptons, Cape and Berskhire getaways; pampering body treatments; VIP tickets and back stage packages for an Allman Brothers or Yanni concert; antiques, jewelry, art, fashion week tickets; Yankees/Red Sox, Giants football and NY Mets tickets; breakfast with Bob Kerry; and lunch with Geraldo Rivera.

Introducing SFTT’s new Families for the B.E.S.T. campaign, headed by John Grant whose son is on active duty in Iraq. This father for the B.E.S.T. may be familiar to viewers of last May’s 5-part NBC Nightly News and Dateline investigative report on substandard body armor.

SFTT’s 2008 Support the Troops with More than Lip Service Award will be awarded to the founders of all-volunteer Operation Helmet. The organization is engaged in preventing severe brain trauma by providing soldiers on the frontlines with upgraded helmet liner kits to replace the substandard Government Issue pads and under liners.
