06/11/08 - Let us enter the Twilight Zone of incompetent Greenwich news reporting...

Greenwich Newspaper Reporters Are
In The Twilight Zone

These Lazy Reporters Don't Even Cover Half Of
The News Stories About Greenwich

In Greenwich there is the infamous case of the Millionaire Murder Mystery mystery. The prosecutor's claim that there is no longer a murder mystery and oddly announce that it was all "murder for hire" plot.

The Greenwich Citizen, the Greenwich Post and the Greenwich Time seem to be unaware of the shocking revelation.

Yet papers across the country are grabbing the story off the Associated Press News Wire. Maybe, the Greenwich Citizen, the Greenwich Post and the Greenwich Time will cover the story tomorrow or Friday.

Please see:

What about the contaminated Hamilton Avenue School Modular Classrooms?

Today Hamilton Avenue Parents release tests documenting sever mold contamination at Hamilton Avenue School to the Greenwich Citizen, the Greenwich Post and the Greenwich Time.

Yet only the Greenwich Post immediately covers the "Breaking News" story. Maybe the Greenwich Citizen and the Greenwich Time will cover the story tomorrow or next week some time.

Please see:

However if the Board Of Education puts out a press release the Greenwich Time is all over it.

Now lets look at the case of a contentious Greenwich Teacher's Aide contract.

The Greenwich Time covered the story, but the reporter only spoke to a school board member and not to parents, students and teachers aides.

Maybe if the Greenwich Citizen and Greenwich Post will finally cover the story and speak to all of the persons involved.

What Happened At Monday's Representative Town Meeting?

Well if you look at the Greenwich Citizen or Greenwich Post Websites, you would walk away with the impression that nothing news worthy occurred at the meeting.

There is not one story at either website about Monday's Representative Town Meeting.

If you look at the Greenwich Time website you would probably think that the RTM only dealt with the $30,000 Havemeyer building study.

Please see:

RTM OKs study of Havemeyer

But Readers Of Greenwich Roundup Know Were Fully Informed About Every Issue That Was Raised At Monday's Representative Town Meeting.

It is clear that if a single family home-owner wants to be fully informed about what is happening with his tax dollars and town, he must take five minutes and read Greenwich Roundup every day.

If you rely solely on one of the other 'so-called" Greenwich news websites, then you will not be fully informed about what is really going on in town.

If you don't believe us then go take a look at the Greenwich Citizen's "news" website. The thing has not been updated in seven days.

Perhaps, we should organize a search party to locate the editor and reporters at the Greenwich Citizen.

UPDATE: Thursday June 12, 2008
The Greenwich Post Reports On
Monday's Representative Town Meeting

Town OKs studying Havemeyer for seniors

The Representative Town Meeting approved a study Monday to determine whether all of the senior center’s programming could be conducted in the Havemeyer Building or if could be divided between Havemeyer and its current location....

...RTM members narrowly defeated a motion to vote separately on the appropriation (a resolution that had been combined with other agenda items for voting purposes), 90 to 94, with three abstentions. The vote was 151 to 31.

Member Christine Edwards, who made the motion, suggested the money be used for other projects around town, such as paying for one instructional aide in the schools. She cautioned that only when the Board of Education completes its study of its space needs will it be seen how much space there could be for the senior center in the Havemeyer Building....

06/11/08 Hollywood And Hedge Funds - What A Soap Opera - Can't Isa Get Holly A Job At Silver Point Capital In Greenwich?

Michael Bolton Spawn To Attack Pirate Ship

Michael Bolton offspring Holly Bolotin is allegedly suing Pirate Capital founder Tom Hudson. Longtime DealBreaker readers know that Bolton's daughters Holly and Isa were employed, in a variety of capacities (investor relations, stock picker, fluffer), by the hedge fund for a year or so.

In December, Isa left for Silver Point Capital in Greenwich, and Holly was presumed to have been made redundant by Hudson's new girlfriend sometime in February. Apparently Holly took issue with her firing.

Enter the suit.

This is deeply saddening, for several reasons. 1. The incurred legal fees could be the final nail in the coffin for Pirate, which previously managed almost $2 billion, and is now at (ballparking it) 14 large and 2. If the scions of Michael Bolton can't put on a soft rock ballad and get along, there's really little to no hope for the rest of us.

06/11/08 - Breaking News - Newsday Reports Prosecutors Upgrade Charges Against Bother's Charged In Greenwich Millionaire's Murder

Kissel slaying suspect accused of murder for hire
Newsday - Greenwich And Stamford's Paper Of Record

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The slaying of Greenwich developer Andrew Kissel was a murder for hire, state prosecutors said Wednesday as they upgraded the charges against one of two suspects to capital felony.

Prosecutors filed papers in Stamford Superior Court alleging that Carlos Trujillo hired his cousin, Leonard Trujillo, to kill Kissel for money.

Based on that theory, authorities added a new capital felony charge against 21-year-old Leonard Trujillo of Worcester, Mass., who was already charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Carlos Trujillo, 47, of Bridgeport is charged with conspiracy to commit murder in the stabbing death of Kissel at his Greenwich mansion in 2006.

Announcing the murder-for-hire theory was the first time authorities have disclosed a motive for Kissel's killing.

The new charge makes Leonard Trujillo eligible for the death penalty, although it was not immediately clear whether prosecutors will seek to have him executed.

A telephone message was left for Stamford State's Attorney David Cohen. Capital felony carries only two punishments: lethal injection or life in prison without the possibility of release.

Leonard Trujillo's lawyer, Mark Sherman, said his client continues to maintain his innocence.

"The state is free to charge him with whatever they want, but innocent is innocent no matter what the penalty is," Sherman said. "My client's position is not going to change."

Lindy Urso, attorney for Carlos Trujillo, said he did not expect the state to pursue the death penalty. He also said he did not expect his client to face capital felony charges, noting that he is not even charged with murder.

"It certainly doesn't change the fact that neither of these individuals was involved with the murder of Andrew Kissel," Urso said.

Urso also challenged the allegation that his client hired his cousin to kill Kissel.

"It's a theory that will have to be tested in open court with admissible evidence," Urso said. "We're looking forward to the opportunity to test the theory."

Prosecutors also said in court papers that the defendants cannot be tried together because one made admissions to police that allegedly incriminate both of them.

Urso said his client did not make admissions. Sherman declined further comment.

Arrest affidavits have been sealed in the case, but a judge is expected to issue a ruling soon on whether to unseal portions.

Kissel's brother, Robert, was a wealthy banker whose wife was convicted of murder in Hong Kong in September 2005 and sentenced to life in prison after feeding him a milkshake laced with drugs and then beating him to death in November 2003.

By Martin B. Cassidy
Greenwich Time / Staff Writer

Prosecutors charged a suspect in the Andrew Kissel stabbing death with capital felony yesterday, arguing he took money to kill Kissel from his cousin, a co-defendant.

In court papers filed in state Superior Court in Stamford, Assistant State Attorney Paul Ferencek contends that Carlos Trujillo, 47, Kissel's long-time assistant, paid 21-year-old cousin Leonard Trujillo to kill his boss.

Until yesterday, authorities had declined to provide a potential motive for the Kissel slaying. The new charge could carry the death penalty, but Ferencek declined to say whether prosecutors would seek that punishment or provide further details about the alleged conspiracy....

06/11/08 - Breaking School News - The Ham Ave Parent's Test Results Are In - The Board Of Education Is Put Under A Microscope

I have never seen outdoor levels that high,” Robert Leighton, who did the testing, told the Greenwich Post

Parents' modular tests find high mold levels

Posted 4:05 p.m. June 11, 2008

Testing of the modular classrooms paid for by a group of Hamilton Avenue School parents found high levels of mold in the air outside the building and dangerous levels inside what had once been the school’s media center.

According to the report, the tests conducted by the New York-based environmental health and safety firm Leighton Associates, Inc., found there were “very heavy” levels of aspergillus/penicillium-like mold growth, chaetomium mold growth and ulocladium mold growth in the carpeting for Room Six in the modulars. That room served as the school’s media center until this past year, when it was converted to a pre-kindergarten room.

The testing also looked at the outside of the modulars and the crawl space. According to the findings, there was 1,100 counts of aspergillus/penicillium per cubic meter of air outside the building and of 96,000 in the crawl space underneath it, as well as 3,600 and 120,000 counts of basidiospores outside and underneath, respectively....

Please read the full Greenwich Post breaking news article

The Greenwich Post article also notes....

...Leighton Associates’ testing and the board’s simultaneous testing was done on May 9. The Leighton report was first issued to parents on June 3 and given to the school board this week. It was released to the media on Wednesday, after the parents did not get a response from the board within 72 hours of receiving it. Results of the school’s additional testing have yet to be released to the public....

The Greenwich Post article further notes....

....since the classrooms had already been emptied of all contents, furniture, furnishings and other material and there had already been a “thorough” cleaning, including the replacement of dropped ceiling acoustical panels, “... the air testing data may not have accurately reflected airborne mold spore exposure to students, faculty and staff in this building during the time the facility was operating as a school.”...

...Ms. Bibeault said her children had tested positive for exposure to some of the molds listed in the report and said other parents would have different results because there is no universal reaction. She compared it to some people being allergic to peanuts and others not having any reaction.

Ms. DiBella said the parents would also soon be in communication with their attorney, New Jersey-based Ray Carroll.

Ms. Bibeault said she expected the matter to end up in court to determine who was negligent in the matter.

Members of the school board have said they were not aware of the mold problem until Feb. 29, but Ms. Bibeault said she believes it was earlier.

Mr. Carroll could not be reached for comment.

Kim Eves, director of communications for the school district, said on Wednesday that Superintendent of Schools Betty Sternberg had not seen either the parents’ report or the most recent report done by the board.

Board of Education Chairwoman Nancy Weissler said she had not seen the report either and referred comment to Vice Chairwoman Leslie Moriarty, who could not be reached by the Post.

05/09/09 - Hey Greenwich Time - Glenville School Parents Want To Know Why??????

And For The Record:

The Parents Were Prevented From Independently Testing All The Areas

The furnishings, furniture and supplies are in storage containers and this was one of the many areas that parents wanted to test. Hamilton Avenue students and teachers may soon be using these fixtures.


Expert: Mold levels high

High levels of mold found in a wall, outside a modular building and on a piece of carpeting show that Hamilton Avenue School students and staff were exposed to the spores, according to test results released yesterday by a parents group...


Leighton also found high levels of airborne mold outside of the modular in the area next to the building's entrance. While it is natural to find high levels of mold in the outdoors, the readings were particularly high, he said.

"I got to tell you, I do two to three outdoor samples a week," Leighton said. "I've never seen one this high."

The consultant also confirmed that the roof overhang and crawl space were heavily contaminated with mold. He believes that the high outdoors reading may be because the mold infestation underneath the building's crawl space is migrating to its perimeter, including by the entrance, Leighton said....

Please See The Full Green Story


If you read the above Greenwich Time story you will see this paragraph...

The school board had an expert conduct tests at the same time as Leighton did. The report detailing those test results was delivered to the town on Tuesday, officials said.

But another school official came to the RTM District 4's public meeting the Wednesday before last and when he was asked about the testing he said,"We haven't heard 'Boo" from the parents."

He further said the Board Of Education had gotten their test results back and were not "concerned about the results".

This school official then went on to speculate to the District 4 RTM,"That's probably why you have not heard anything from the parents."

Maybe, this school official and the unidentified Greenwich Time school officials that said the test results should remember that it is legal to tape a public meeting in the State of Connecticut.

In fact, some town residents have large collections of public meeting tapes.

So which Public School Official is telling the truth about when the Greenwich Board of Education received the test results.

Is it the unidentified schools official that told the Greenwich Time that the results came in last Tuesday.

Or is the school official that told the District 4 RTM that the test results came in well over a week ago.

Could it be that the unidentified Greenwich Time school official was trying to make it appear that the Board of Education had not violated the agreement to release the test results after three days?

06/11/08 - Breaking Non - News About The Teachers Aides Contract

BOE says aides' contract reached

By Hoa Nguyen
Greenwich Time Staff writer

Article Launched: 06/11/2008 03:04:00 PM EDT

The Board of Education and teachers aides have negotiated a new contract that now goes to union membership and town panels for approval.

"We have reached an agreement on the contract so as of now, we are not going to arbitration," said Steven Anderson, a Board of Education member who participated in the negotiations.....

....Anderson would not comment on the details of the agreement, saying he has not briefed the full school board on the deal. Any agreement would need the approval of the board as well as the Representative Town Meeting before taking effect....

Please Read The Rest Of The Greenwich Time Story

In this incomplete story, the Greenwich Time only got a comment from a Board Of Education Board member and got nothing from Local 136.

Greenwich Time readers to this amateurish Greenwich Time report don't know if teachers aides will still have to contribute up to 15 percent of their salary toward health care premiums.

Greenwich Time readers don't know if school aides will still have a decrease in sick days from 15 days to five days.

Greenwich Time readers don't know if the school aides will still only have a single 30-minute unpaid lunch break.

The Greenwich Time reporters have repeatedly short changed the teacher's aides, by constantly taking Board of Education press releases and running them through the spell checker, before publication.

Hoa Nguyen's report is almost non-news.

Hopefully, this report will be updated later or a second more complete report will be submitted by Mr. Nguyen or a reporter more knowledgeable about the labor dispute.

How can David Warner, who has also been deputy metro editor of The Detroit News; editor of the Trentonian in Trenton, N.J.; city editor of the Philadelphia Daily News; editor of the Daily Local News in West Chester, Pa.; and city editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette put up with such bad journalism?

Board, union agree on contract

By Hoa Nguyen
Staff writer / Greenwich Time

Negotiators from the Board of Education and the Local 136 have agreed on a new contract for Greenwich instructional aides, officials said yesterday....

...The school board and union have been wrestling for months over a new contract for the town's 182 instructional aides. While the talks were officially called off in January so that an arbitrator could be called in, both sides continued to meet. Last month, they narrowed in on a compromise and on Tuesday the arbitration was called off when an agreement was reached, said Lynn Mason, the union's business manager.

"You never get what you want, but we reached what I feel is a very amenable contract," she said, adding that the union membership still must ratify the agreement next month. ...

...In ironing out the deal, negotiators focused on keeping insurance increases to a minimum, Mason said.

"There are some increases, but I think our members will be able to afford them," she said. "Of course, we would like to see more money because it's an underpaid profession, but they gave us a fair raise too."....

..."We're all grateful," Mason said. "It's heightened the awareness the crucial role that our instructional aides play."...

Please Read Hoa's Slightly Improved News Story Here

WOW, Hoa Lynn Mason, the union's business manager knows so much more about this story than School Board Member Steve Anderson who would not comment on the details of the agreement.

See, Hoa if you had talked to Ms. Mason yesterday you would have the beginings of a real news story and not a Non-News story of Mr. Anderson basically saying no comment.

Hoa, Yesterday's story made you look kind of like a reporter that was too lazy to pick up the phone to get all sides of a news story.

You know what they say Hoa....
"Every story has at least three sides."

Hoa your second attempt at real reporting is much better, but it is still very incomplete. Maybe you could get some input and quotes from parents. That would really help round out the story.

Hoa, if you want to be a real reporter you need to talk to all the stakeholders in a news story.

Hoa a real reporter would get on the phone and call up some Representative Town Meeting members who must approve this deal between the Board Of Education and the teachers union.

Contract With Parents Broken

Greenwich Public Schools Breaks Agreement On The Hamilton Avenue School Modulars

The results of the testing done by the paid-for-by-parents Industrial Hygienist are being released to the media today.

The agreement with the Town was three days after the completion of testing, the results would be exchanged (they had their Industrial Hygienist, Bob Brown, copycat the parents' Industrial Hygienist the day of testing).

The Town of Greenwich has failed to exchange their results with the attorneys for the parents group.

Let's see if the Greenwich Citizen, the Greenwich Post and the Greenwich Time has the journalistic balls to cover all sides of the story.

The latter pays bills, the former does not, so I got the heave ho.
