12/30/08 Bill Clarke Updates His Blog And Finds Betty A Job.

"I just love that sweet little ole Bill Clarke"


Betty Sternberg For Editor!





Something has got to be done about the shameful state of the local rag, aka Yellowwich Time. Today's banner headline says that work on the bridge at Exit 4 in Cos Cob will "effect" the Town for some time to come.





What are we to make of this cryptic statement? Your scribe's dictionary says that "effect" (v.tr.) means "to bring about, accomplish, make happen." So this bridge work is going to "bring about" our Town? Will it "accomplish" Greenwich? Perhaps it will "make" Greenwich into a more "happening" place?





Clearly this kind of gibberish has no place in our community. We need to take our highest-paid and highest-ranking so-called "educator", and immediately put her to work as editor-in-chief of the local rag. Think of the beauty of this solution, my friends: we take a walking disaster out of our school system, and we put her in charge of the dying disaster known as Yellowwich Time. Talk about killing two birds with one stone! When the Hearst people finally put the local rag out of its misery, they can cart Betty off at the same time. It's a clear win-win situation for the Town of Greenwich.





So write your congressman, email the governor, call Town Hall, and help to organize another picket march at the Havemeyer Building, home to our ever-popular Board of Ed. Let's hear it, folks! Betty Sternberg for editor!

1130/08 READER SUBMITTED COMMENTS: Questions About The Greenwich Post - The Dishonest Now DISTANT Dish


Reader Says Suzy "The Dish" Annoys Greenwich Post


Dear Editor,

Can anyone explain Susie Costaregi's column "The Dish 2" in The Greenwich Post????? What is its point? Does anyone care about these imaginary star sightings? And if the Greenwich Post is a community newspaper, although a poor one, why is Susie's SCENE SUDDENLY NEW YORK????

WHO IS INTERESTED IN this TEENBEAT-TYPE HYPE????

Why does the Town of Greenwich have to read Susie Costaregri's usless crap? Why do certain weekly newspapers (Hershan/Acorn) give Susie and her father figure-boy-toy, Joe Pisani, page space? Not only do the two of them bore me by sharing <gag> special moments complimenting each other, they share the same imaginary poor writing. I notice some towns, like Darien, got rid of them. Why can't we do that?

I can't tell you how impressed I was to read Diana Ross was seen leaving the Greenwich library. That means WHAT????? That Diana can read?????? That Diana is too cheap to a book?? That the Greenwich Library is a MOTOWN magnet???? That the Town of Greenwich is richly populated with (former arrested) drunk drivers? Is Michael Jackson on his way to Greenwich? Someone explain why this is news????

I guess Susie Costaregi is still following her high school English teacher, right into Manhattan where he claims he works now. So, THE SCENE, is no longer Greenwich, but New York. Gee, that's a big surprise,hehe. Maybe the New York Post would like to hire these two and give the people in Greenwich a BREAK!!!!!!!!!!

signed, No Mo'Crap

11/30/08 Help Wanted At RTM District 5 ?????


Is Everyone Getting An Equal Chance To Serve On The Riverside RTM?


Very few Riverside residents know there is an opening in District 5 for a place on the Riverside delegation to the Representative Town Meeting. For some reason district 5 has done a poor job of making Riverside residents aware of the opening for a local legislative office.


Supposedly anyone who is interested in the position is can call Mary Ferry at 637-9385 or Lucy Krasnor at 637-2277.


However, Be Fore Warned That This Maybe A Done Deal

And The Fix May Already Be In Place.


Because If You Interested You Only Have A couple Of Days To Reach Mary Or Lucy And Be Considered.


The District 5 delegation to the RTM will hold a public meeting to select someone to fill the vacancy at 8 p.m. Thursday in the Riverside School media room.
So if you would like to serve Riverside as an RTM member, then get moving, because you have less than 96 hours before the public meeting is held to pick the next Riverside legislator.

It looks like the Riverside RTM needs a little more transparency. Where was the Greenwich Citizen, the Greenwich Post, the Greenwich Time, Greenwich Cable TV Channel 79 and WGCH?

Did anyone see or hear any news reports on why there was a legislative vacancy in Riverside?

Has any one read anything about the Riverside RTM vacancy before today?

It is supposed to be that a citizen of Riverside who is registered to vote is eligible to serve on the RTM district 5. New candidates must file a petition signed by at least 25 voters in their home district with the town clerk by Sept. 15 of an election year. Mid-term vacancies must be publicized by district chairs and will be filled in a special election. Any voter of that district interested in the seat should contact the district chair.

If a Riverside resident goes to the Town Of Greenwich Website looking for news about the vacancy there is nothing on the main web page. If a Riverside resident then desides to use the Town Of Greenwich search box for "RTM district 5" then he or she gets....

11/29/08 Greenwich Time News Links - Top Story: Town Officials React To Exit 4 Overpass Construction


Construction on the Indian Field Road overpass at exit 4 is underway.

(Keelin Daly/Greenwich Time photo)




By Neil Vigdor


Town officials are cringing at the potential scenarios that could result from a major bridge replacement project on Indian Field Road in Cos Cob, which some fear could cut one side of town off from another and snarl traffic on Interstate 95 beneath the aging span.


The nearly $7 million project got under way this month and isn't scheduled to be completed until May 2011, according to the state Department of Transportation, which is in charge of the job.


Despite assurances from the DOT that the bridge will remain open throughout the project and that most of the work will be confined to nighttime, town officials say drivers and first responders could be in a for a "headache" while the construction is in progress.


"That holds all types of promise for things to go awry," said Daniel Warzoha, the town's emergency management director and former fire chief. "Let's face it, there's going to come a time when something's going to happen that's going to affect it during peak travel." .....


.....First Selectman Peter Tesei said the town had limited options when it came to repairing the bridge.


"It's something that was in dire need of replacement, so I'm pleased the state is stepping up to replace it," Tesei said. "What are the alternatives?" .......


......"I would avoid the area if I could," said Sgt. Timothy Berry, head of the police department's traffic section. .......


.....On the south side of the bridge is the town's primary fueling and fleet maintenance site for municipal vehicles, as well as the main staging area for snow plows and road work trucks.


"I was not aware of the severity of (the project)," said Elizabeth Linck, the town's fleet director.


Told that state transportation planners were anticipating minimal disruptions to the area, Linck said she has some trepidation about the project's impact.


"I guess they haven't been here at rush hour," Linck said. .....


......Town Traffic Engineer Garo Garabedian, whom DOT officials briefed on the project, said he is highly confident that the state would pull the job off without any problems and keep the bridge open.


"They've done bridges before. They should know what they're doing. These guys are pretty good," Garabedian said. .....

Hospital reports financial losses


By Meredith Blake


The problems that have plagued the financial markets and fueled the current economic crisis have hit close to home at Greenwich Hospital, which reported a loss for the first time in more than 20 years.


The collapse of auction-rate bonds and the crash in the domestic and international securities markets led the hospital to a $14.2 million loss on its investment portfolio, according to Chief Financial Officer Eugene Colucci.


Greenwich Hospital took another $2.5 million hit on refinancing high-interest-rate bonds and spent $1.1 million extinguishing bond debt, leading to a negative bottom line of $9.3 million for fiscal year 2008, which ended on Sept. 30.


That was despite a net operating gain of $6.4 million.


"It was a tough financial year," Colucci said, "Most of the issues we experienced were unforeseen."


Last year, the hospital reported a positive bottom line of $14.5 million, he said.


Greenwich Hospital President and Chief Financial Officer Frank Corvino announced the unaudited financial results this week at the hospital's annual board of directors meeting, held at the facility on Perryridge Road.


"It was a difficult year to navigate," Corvino said.


The hospital started the fiscal year strongly, with numbers up from previous years, but then things slowed down, he said.


There were large patient volume fluctuations, according to Corvino. The facility was busy in January and February, but the number of empty beds rose over the summer.......

Other people want that money, too. The people who now keep it - the beer wholesalers and soda companies.

I read in the press that the rage for routinely tearing down houses to make way for gigantic monsters has come to an end, as the reality of a crashing economy strikes home - or, in this case - homes.




To the editor:


What a fool I am. In September, my son started his fourth year in a modular. He has never been in a "real" school, except for the few months he was at Parkway. For Hamilton Avenue School students, Parkway and all the other Greenwich elementary schools were just a cruel tease:

"Hey mom, at Parkway they have this big room where there is only art! And another room that only has music!" There is also a huge room where we can run around and play sports inside! I love it!"


"Honey, that's called a gymnasium." (At Ham Ave. during bad weather, they stay in their rooms and throw scarves or do jumping jacks in place.)


What a fool I am. Two years ago, when my daughter was at kindergarten orientation, I was told she would be the first class in the new building. That was 11/2 years ago.


Enough is enough, I thought. Time to move my kids; they deserve the same elementary experience every other child in Greenwich receives. But wait! Summer 2008 came and the news was "Ham Ave. to get a delayed opening" (What a fool I am). No, wait. "Columbus Day move-in" (What a fool I am). No, wait. "Ham Ave. to move in over Christmas break" (What a fool I am)!


Headline Nov. 27, Greenwich Time: "April for Ham Ave. move?" Yeah, right, What A fool I am!
Now we are told that if the school is ready by February break, the students cannot move in due to Connecticut Mastery Tests.


I don't know how a move done over a break is going to affect the testing, but what I do know is that I and every other parent at Ham Ave. is at the breaking point, and if you tell us our school is finished and we can't move in, get ready for a fight!

It Is Time To Get Rid Of Frank Mazza And The Greenwich Board Of Education




Hamilton Avenue School students won't be allowed to move into their new building until April if the school's building committee can't secure the necessary approvals to make the facility safe for occupancy by the end of next week, the head of the school board said.


Board of Education Chairman Nancy Weissler said Wednesday that the facility must receive a temporary certificate of occupancy by Dec. 5 if students are to safely return to classes there after holiday breaks end Jan. 5......


COMMENTS:


A GREENWICH ROUNDUP EDITORIAL


SCHOOL OF FOOLS


Nancy Weissler And Her Negligent Board Of Education And Frank Mazza And His School Building Committee Must Resign Now.


Only Newly Elected School Board Member
Marianna Ponns Cohen Should Remain


The once great Greenwich Public School System has been brought to ruin by Nancy Weissler and her negligent fellow Board Of Education members. Ms. Weisller and her poorly managed board have cost thousands of tax dolars for every man woman and child in Greenwich.


Nancy Wiessler and the School Building Chairman she has supported through thick and thin will soon becoming to the taxpayers once again with their hands streched out.


If Nancy Wiessler, Frank Mazza and the other negligent board members had any decency they would resign.


It Is Time To Bounce These Bozo Board Members
And Their Failed High Paid Educrats


NANCY IS IN WAY OVER HER HEAD


Wielser's Poor Manaagement Skills And Lack Of Expierence
Has Orchestrated The Fall Of Our Once Great Public Schools.


Blame abounds, but most of it must accrue to Nancy Wiessler and the Greenwich Board Of Education for their undying support of Frank Mazza and his band of idiots on the Hamilton Avenue School Building Committee.


JUST WHO IS ON THIS COMMITTEE
THAT HAS REPEATEDLY FAILED THE TAXPAYERS, PARENTS
AND CHILDREN OF GREENWICH?


The Failed Hamilton School Committee Members Are:

Paul Toretta torpa@aol.com
Sylvester Pecora nansea@optonline.net
Michael C. Bodson MichaelBodson@yahoo.com
Stephen G. Walko swalko@ibolaw.com


But It Is Not Just Frank Mazza And His Band Od Idiots That Are To Blame For The Repeated Disasters And Cost Over Runs At The Failed Hamilton Avenue School Building Project.


There Are A Host Of Ex-Officio Members To The Failed Hamilton Avenue Building Committee Who Saw That Frank Mazza And His Band Of Idiots Were Mis-Leading Taxpayers And Parents, But They Said Nothing. They Had Inside Information, But Choose "To Go Along To Get Along" Instead Of Protecting The Children Of Greenwich.


Ex-Officio Members To The Failed Hamilton Avenue Building Committee Who Were So Worried About Frank Mazza And Forgot All About Their Nieghbors Who Are Now Stuck Paying The Bill Are:

Anyone Of These Hamilton Avenue Building Committee Seat Warmers Could Of Spoken Up And Saved Greenwich Taxpayers Millions Of Dolars, But They Chose To Turn A Blind Eye To The Children Of Greenwich.


HOWEVER THESE VERY QUIET INDIVIDUALS
ARE NOT ULTIMATELY TO BLAME


The Greenwich Board Of Education are soley responsible for making decisions that have put taxpayers in a bind and caused many of their children to fail. Which leads reasonable Greenwich residents to ask one simple question......


What Were Nancy Weissler And The Other
Negligent School Board Members Thinking?????


One Of the failed school board members was replaced in the last school election. If those who remain had any decency they would simply quit.


Who's Still there?

At best, this board of education was a sllep at the switch while two Greenwich Public Schools were closed and test scores rapidly droped.


Again, they need to go.


Aleady gone, but not soon enough is School Superintendent Betty Sternberg who will be leaving in June Of next year. Over and over Ms. Sternberg and her failed administrators in the public school system repeatedly gave Greenwich parents and taxpayers rosey assessments.


Never once did Nancy Weisller and her fellow negligent board members once question the preposterously rosy assesments from Sternberg or Mazza.


What were they thinking ?????


There should be no mistake where the responsibility resides.
That would be with the Greenwich School Board members
- and Nancy Weissler in particular.
