08/29/08 Is Michael Bodson Parading Colin Gustafson Around With A Nose Ring?



Greenwich Time says......




Written By The
Board Of Education's Boy
Colin Gustafson


A variety of unresolved facilities issues - most of them easy to fix - are preventing the Hamilton Avenue School from receiving sign-offs from inspectors necessary for students to return to the building, the school board told parents last night.


Broken glass needs to be repaired, as well as cracks in some of the floor-level surfaces that must be patched. The secondary drainage system is not functioning properly. And there are concerns about the amount of back-up power for the emergency lighting system.


In addition, crews mistakenly installed the building's thermostats too high to be in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Yet another difficulty: The facility's heating, ventilation and air conditioning system isn't providing enough airflow to parts of the building for reasons that continue to elude members of the school's building committee.


Though relatively easy to fix, these issues are keeping the building from receiving a temporary certificate of occupancy from the town's Buildings Department, according to Michael Bodson, the school board's liason with the school's building committee.....


Whoa Whoa Whoa

Slow Down There Colin....


"The facility's heating, ventilation and air conditioning system isn't providing enough airflow to parts of the building for reasons that continue to elude members of the school's building committee."


And This......


"Though relatively easy to fix, these issues are keeping the building from receiving a temporary certificate of occupancy from the town's Buildings Department....."


Hey Colin, we know your new to reporting on the failed school officials like Michael Bodson, but wasn't Hamilton Avenue school closed over air quality issues caused by mold?


Didn't air quality issues in the modular classroom buildings cause the unprecedented temporary classroom shutdown, that sent Hamilton Avenue School children to classrooms all over town?


Aren't the poor little children at Glenville School taking 45 minute bus trips, because the Hamilton Avenue School air conditioning system isn't providing enough airflow to all of the building?


Are Glenville School mothers and fathers forced to wait an hour or more to pick up their tired and stressed out children, because Frank Mazza and his band of idiots on the school building committee can't figure out why the Hamilton Avenue School air conditioning system isn't providing enough airflow to parts of the building?


Wasn't Worth construction trying "it's Best" to get the Hamilton Avenue School air conditioning system working back in June and July of this year?


Did Worth Construction miss the August first, seventh and fifteenth deadlines to get only a "temporary" certificate of occupancy, that will allow children to go to school as construction continues, because the Hamilton Avenue School air conditioning system isn't providing enough airflow to parts of the building?


Aren't Glenville Children going to be bused all over town until just before Halloween, because the Hamilton Avenue School heating, ventilation and air conditioning system isn't providing enough airflow to parts of the building for reasons that continue to elude Frank Mazza and his band of idiots on the school's building committee?


Won't failed school administrators and failed school board members be coming to the BET and the RTM looking for another $250,000 to $500,000 to pay for busing Glenville students all over town because the Hamilton Avenue School heating, ventilation and air conditioning system isn't providing enough airflow to parts of the building for reasons that continue to elude Frank Mazza and his band of idiots on the school's building committee?


THIS IS A MINOR PROBLEM?


As usual Colin's incomplete and unbalanced reporting comes shining through, only Michael Bodson, the school board's liaison with the school's building committee, who has repeatedly misled school parents and tax payers is quoted in this amateurishly written story.


Why is Co;in to lazy to pick up the phone and get quotes and information from other persons, besides failed school administrators and the failed school board members that lead them.


Why can't Colin get quotes and information from......



  • Glenville and Hamilton Avenue Parents who have to watch their children suffer year after year.


  • BET and RTM members who are tired of shelling out millions on Frank Mazza's Building committee.


  • Town Of Greenwich Building Department Officials.


  • Independent construction managers and building ventilation experts


  • The single family homeowners who's tax bill goes up every year.


  • Etc, Etc, Etc,.....

This unsolved three month old problem that continues to shut down Hamilton Avenue School is only reported as a "minor problem", because Michael Bodson, the school board's liaison with the school's building committee is leading Colin Gustafson around with a nose ring.


Michael Bodson: "Say Mooooo Colin."


Colin Gustafson: "MOOOOOOOO!!!!!!"


Michael Bodson: "That's My Little Hieffer."

08/29/08 Do You Think It Was A Big Mistake For The Greenwich Time To Fire Sarah? Do you think it's a good idea for Sarah's bolg to steal?






by Sarah Darer Littman


Seven years ago today, I made an attempt on my own life, and ended up in hospital. It was the worst time of my life, but it was the best thing that ever happened to me.


This evening, I was lying in the hammock (Reason # 6894759 to love The Webmeister), cuddled up with my puppy Benny, thinking about far I have come since that day seven years ago and thanking G-d for the gifts in my life today. My two wonderful children. A great relationship with a supportive guy. A lovable white fluffball to play with by day and curl up with at night. A career doing what I love, and on this very day, some great news that I hope to share very soon.


A new online project with some former colleagues at the Greenwich Time/Stamford Advocate called Our Greenwich that I'm really excited about. So much to be grateful for - including that most dreadful, horrible time, seven years ago; because if I hadn't gone through that, I wouldn't be here. Plus, the experiences in the hospital gave me a lot of material I used in writing PURGE, a book I feel so passionate about.


I'm so happy and grateful to be alive, to be here, to be in my life right now, waiting to watch Obama make his speech tonight, a historic moment mingling with my own moment of personal triumph.




It is great to see that Sara has survived and preveiled, but this Our Greenwich is certainly no Greenwich Time Killer.


The first posting is this hard hitting item .....




It’s Our Town - and there are just so many things to love about it. Tell us your 10 favorite things about living or working in Greenwich - or even visiting, if you’re reading this from farther afield.


To kick things off, we have Nicole Crosby of Cos Cob, who gave us the idea for fun feature.


My Greenwich Top Ten List - Nicole Crosby


(In no particular order)


A Pont-Neuf pastry from Versailles on the Avenue


Filling my red wagon at the May Gardener’s Market.....blah....blah.....blah


Is Our Greenwich trying to out fluff the Greenwich Time.




So far Our Greenwich actually makes the Greenwich Time look good.




I Actually Think That The New Greenwich Time Editor David Warner Is Rolling On The Floor And Laughing His Ass Off At.....








After Greenwich Time Publisher John M. Dunster fired Editor Joe Pisani. And David Warner was brought in to clean house. Joe Pisani and the unemployed ex-Greenwich Time staffers started telling anyone who would listen about how they were going to drive the Greenwich Time into the ground with a new killer web site.

They contacted a web master who wanted $25,000 to start, but Joe Pisani got some advertising job in the city and began writing for the Greenwich Post. The word is that a conference call with the $25,000 web master was set up and no former Greenwich Time employee showed up.

I hope to god that Joe Pisani .John Ferris Robben ,Joy Haenlein ,Sarah Darer Littman and Susie Costaregni did not spend $25,000 on Our Greenwich.

The Our Greenwich team blog kind of reminds one of the The Greenwich Blog which has not been updated for over two months.

I have been told that Chris from the StationStops blog might be the web master behind the Our Greenwich blog.

It does have his crisp and clean with no caffeine style.

Sarah Darer Littman does have a lot of bucks and maybe she forked $25,000 over to Chris at StationStops for this standard word press team blog.

Now that Greenwich Time editor David Warner has recuperated from laughing his ass off.

I will say that Greenwich Roundup wishes Joe Pisani .John Ferris Robben ,Joy Haenlein ,Sarah Darer Littman and Susie Costaregni all the best and hopefully they will stop blogging about "Pont-Neuf pastry" and "little red wagons" and get serious about issues that are effecting the single family homeowners of Greenwich.

All these years Greenwich Time reporters and columnists have been telling us that the corporate owners will not let them tell all about the powers that be in Greenwich.

Now that they are free of the corporate bullies they bring us "Pont-Neuf pastry" and "little red wagons".

No wonder Dunster and Warner got rid of Joe Pisani .John Ferris Robben ,Joy Haenlein ,Sarah Darer Littman and Susie Costaregni.

If the Our Greenwich blog doesn't start getting serious they will be buried by David Warner and the Greenwich Time.


It is actually very pathetic to see how uncreative the former Greenwich Time staffers are. For example, Joy Haenlein is calling her blog page

Old Greenwich Roundup.

No wonder David Warner cleaned house and got rid of these amateurish and unimaginative third and forth rate plagiarizing columnists who were washed up has beens.


MAYBE INSTEAD OF ASKING DO YOU THINK IT WAS A BIG MISTAKE FOR THE GREENWICH TIME TO FIRE SARA, MAYBE WE SHOULD BE ASKING IF WAS A BIG MISTAKE FOR SARA TO ASSIST. ENCOURAGE AND FINANCIALLY SUPPORT JOY'S THEFT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. PLEASE SEE.......

08/29/08 Joe Pisani .John Ferris Robben ,Joy Haenlein ,Sarah Darer Littman and Susie Costaregni. Are Headed To Court
Joe Pisani .John Ferris Robben ,Joy Haenlein ,Sarah Darer Littman and Susie Costaregni. attempt to steal Old Greenwich Roundup Name And Concept On Their New Team Blog.It is actually very pathetic to see how uncreative the former Greenwich Time staffers are.


Joy Haenlein is calling her blog page Old Greenwich Roundup.


No wonder David Warner cleaned house and got rid of these amateurish and unimaginative third and forth rate plagiarizing columnists who were washed up has beens.


Each Roundup Media Site Is Tracked By Google Analytics,


And We Believe That Joe Pisani .John Ferris Robben ,Joy Haenlein ,Sarah Darer Littman , Susie Costaregni And Their Associates Have Visited The Roundup Media Websites Multiple Times At Home And At Their Former Employers Computers.


Joe Pisani .John Ferris Robben ,Joy Haenlein ,Sarah Darer Littman , Susie Costaregni and their associates working together to steal the Old Greenwich Roundup Blog name and Concept After Visiting Roundup Media Websites Is Going To Cost Each Of Them A Hell Of A Lot More Than The $25,000 They Had Initially Talked Of Investing In A Website/Team Blog.


Just As They Can Not STEAL The Greenwich Time Name, They Can Not Use The Greenwich Roundup, Old Greenwich Roundup Without Paying A Very High Legal Cost And Personal Judgement.


Joe Pisani .John Ferris Robben ,Joy Haenlein ,Sarah Darer Littman and Susie Costaregni is the only persons using some Greenwich Time traditional design elements in their new blog.


These design elements might be considered proprietary and Hearst Media may not look favorably on former employees violating trademarked design elements.


Old Greenwich Roundup would remind Joe Pisani .John Ferris Robben ,Joy Haenlein ,Sarah Darer Littman , Susie Costaregni and their associates that they are stealing this intellectual property as sole proprietors and not as members of a LLC or shareholders of a corporation or trust.


Old Greenwich Roundup and it's affiliated Roundup Media Websites demand that Joe Pisani .John Ferris Robben ,Joy Haenlein ,Sarah Darer Littman , Susie Costaregni and their associates immediately cease and desist the theft of the name Old Greenwich Roundup and other intellectual property associated with the name or be prepared to loose your personal assets.


The Old Greenwich Roundup website / blog was backed up tonight in order to preserve previous posting as evidence for a potential lawsuit against Joe Pisani .John Ferris Robben ,Joy Haenlein ,Sarah Darer Littman , Susie Costaregni and there associates.


Some Our Greenwich web pages have been saved.


All Google Analytic Reports were downloaded for all of the Roundup Media Websites / Blogs for use as evidence.
