12/27/08 READER SUBMITTED COMMENTS: Kaja has a plan to help Peter Tesei Close The Greenwich Budget Gap


KAJA WANTS TO INCREASE THE TAX ON THE BAD HABITS OF PARIS HILTON

Dear Greenwich Roundup Editor,
To solve the economic situation we must legalize marijuana and prostitution and let the government get it's share of the taxes from both of these thriving industries.

Kaja Gibson

COMMENT:

Obviously, Kaja you are not a pot smoking prostitute since you want to tax these activities. Now Paris Hilton That's A Different Story.
You all know Paris, America's little darling.
The horrible human being that arrogantly referred to two black men as "dumb nig*ers" when she thought no one was listening (however, unbeknownst to her someone was filming her utter the slur), goes around sleeping with married men, breaking up relationships, threatening innocent people, hanging out with shaky friends, smoking weed, doing cocaine and of course, starring in porn films.
Yet we are big morons allowing our children to watch her horrible antics on cable television.

12/27/08 THUNDER COLT'S REAL ESTATE REPORT ----- MY NEW HOME IN CONNETICUT : Conyers Farm Ghosts - Mostly Good




AN 1900 -1905 BUILT EQUESTRIAN SET UP : ENGLISH TUDOR HOME THAT LOOKS KIND OF LIKE A CASTLE: THE FACADE IS IN STONE AND BRICK :


LOOKS VERY SPOOKY:


We Moved in last week of November after I had lived in North Carolina for 10yrs now due to work (That still is.. But in a Different Place Now) ....


I moved North with my NEW Fiancee Sylvie (If you Read her pub Story you know who Im talking about) and my now full time living with me daughter Jazzmine. We had moved North for numerous Reasons : Family (Mine and Her's live nearer to here that NC), Her Work (She was transfered and with my Job I can live just about anywhere without hassle as long as I turn up to Race), My Daughter (for Her Schooling and to be close to her Mom's Family ) and of course the biggest suprise for me to date... We'd need more room as our Little family would have a Extra Addition in June. So we needed a Nursery. (Which for the last 2 weeks Ive been busy decorating....


Proud Papa thats me.). We found this Home online at Unique Homes .com... Same place I found my Last Home. And went to see it Early November. And bought it the next day. So Our history there begins. Im used to ghosts and this place is old...


But I didnt think that it could be a possibility. That this place was haunted too....


Oh boy was I in for a Suprise!! I should know better than to doubt the spirit world. They spring suprises on you when you least expect it!!


SHORT VERSION OF HOUSE HISTORY FOR YOU HISTORIANS HERE:


Between 1900 and 1905 by the Stanley Family (Rich Virginian Farmers who settled North in Retirement). They lived there until 1925 when the last one surviving of the 11 Children they had sold the house after their parents Died in 1921 and 1925 respectfully.It was then bought by the MacEllis Family who owned it until the Second World War.


When it was sold and used as a Nursing Home for Returning Soldiers who were injured in Battle. After the War the home was retored back to its former Home Glory but was sold 15 times in a Matter of 20 yrs. In the 1960's it was Turned into a Hippy Commune and the last 16th of the Property (Back Paddock was sold off to become what is now a part of a golf course) It belonged to the Hippies until about 1975 when most of the back of the Home was destroyed in a Massive Fire.


The Home was Bought out and restored by a Distant relation of the Rockerfellers a guy by the name of Hubert Wilker . Who funny restored the Home to its former glory for the second time in its odd life. And he also added stables, Riding Arena. Swimming Pool and the TWO Tennis Courts. Which all still stand today and are in full use. Hubert Died from Lung Cancer in 1987. And the Property was passed on to his only living relative a Nephew called Alfred who was in his 50's. Alfred lived there with his Wife, Mistress (In the Top Floor his wife didnt mind apparently) and both ladies Children totally 14 all together ...


10 of which were his. He died in 1998. And his wife and Mistress both shared the house until his Mistress Died of Unknown Health problems in 2001. His wife Moved to Florida. The House since 2001 until we bought the house in November had been passed through several hands again being sold some 14 times before we bought it.All these Short Term owners I am currently trying to find details on.. But as for resons of Ghosts...


Several People passed on here in the Houses History. Maybe some of them decided to stay on a while. I dont mind they are all interesting in their own way and add character to the house.

12/27/08 Greenwich Time News Links On Saturday. TOP STORY: Will Republican's Like Robert McKnight Kill The New Byram Swimming Pool?


Greenwich Insiders Robert J. McKnight Jr. Is Saying He Is Not Sure That Byram Pool Supporters Are Really "Swimming" In Money.


Will Byram Lose It's New Pool Because The Republican Byram RTM Chairman Is Trying To Hurt Democratic Selectwoman Lin Livery


McKnight Should Get Off His Ass And Start Helping Bing In Donations Instead Of Slamming The Good Donors Who Want To Improve Byram



Perceived to be treading water because of lean economic times, a proposal to build a new community swimming pool in Byram Park through a public-private partnership involving the town is still afloat, according to Selectman Lin Lavery.


Lavery said a group of volunteers is continuing to seek private donations for the estimated $6.5 million project, which it had initially hoped to break ground on next September.


The project's supporters, Lavery said, have no intention of abandoning the effort and already have spent an estimated $15,000 in privately raised funds on preliminary architectural and engineering plans for the new pool.


"God, no," Lavery, one of the people spearheading the effort, said of the perception that the project is dead in the water. "Full steam ahead in terms of trying to get people to support the project."


For the project to have any chance of making it, however, town officials said the lion's share of the pool's cost must be paid for privately, with taxpayers shouldering minimal expenses.


"Certainly, the availability of external funding plays into it. But the question is how much and when will we get it?" First Selectman Peter Tesei said.


Tesei said it would be difficult for him to see the town choose to do the pool over other projects with limited funds available for capital expenditures.


"If we have to choose between a fire station and a pool, public safety will take precedence," Tesei said.


Lavery would not disclose how much has been raised for the project in private donations, other than to say that the group was shoring up its base of people who made pledges to the project and seeking additional donations.


"Right now, we are in a new set of financial realities both for the town and our donors," Lavery said. "We're going back to our donors. We need more donors. Anyone who is in the fundraising business these days has to revisit their donors and make sure they're comfortable." ......

PLEASE ALSO SEE:
MAYBE RTM CHAIRMAN ROBERT J. McKNIGHT DEMANDED THAT THE WABBA BROTHERS RESIGN FROM THE DISTRICT 4 RTM........ BECAUSE THE WABBA FAMILY HAS BEEN HEAVILY INVOLVED WITH PROVIDING MONEY FOR THE BYRAM POOL.
Robert McKnight has repeatedly said at public meetings that he did not see how a survey of the Byram Park pool could be started without having the Master Plan completed and properly analyzed by his district 4 RTM members.
McKnight repeatedly has said at public meetings that there could be unnecessary and costly delays if the two plans have conflicting visions.
How the Master Plan could conflict with an improved Byram Pool that is built with private funds is hard for long time Byram residents to understand.
This is causing some Byram political insiders to speculate that McKnight has sold out the working class village in an effort to help the Town Republicans torpedo the Democrat Selectwoman's pet project and it's innovative public -private partnership funding scheme.
There are rumors that the very popular Selectwoman is considering running for the First selectman's office in less than a year.
PLEASE SEE:
FOR THE RECORD:
The publisher of Greenwich Roundup requested the email communications that RTM Chairman Robert McKnight sent to the Wabba brothers forcing them to resign from the Byram District 4 RTM. The freedom of information was given to the Town Clerk, who forwarded the request to the Town attorney.
For 23 days the Greenwich Town Attorney has failed to respond to the Freedom Of Information request for RTM Chairman Robert McKnight's emails to the Wabbas. Even though these emails are public documents.
The Town Clerk has said at least one of the Wabbas who supported the new Byram Pool, has caved in to Robert McKnights pressure tactics and resigned form the Byram RTM.
There maybe a special election for Mr. Wabba's Byram RTM seat in a couple of weeks, but the RTM Chairman so far has refused to publish a notice in the Greenwich Time.
Many Byram residents have expressed an interest in the one and possibly two open Byram RTM seats, but they have not been able to get information on the Byram Special Election.
Byram resident Bill Clark who writes the very popular Greenwich Gossip blog has expressed an interest in being considered for an open District 4 RTM seats.
Robert McKnight Chairman has been dragging two of his cronies to the last two Byram RTM meetings in hopes of placing them in the Wabba's seats at the last minute.
But the Wabba's refused to resign and did not attend the meetings.
At the December District 4 Meeting Robert McKnight complained that he had gotten one of the Wabba's to send an email resignation, but that this Wabba brother sent the resignation email was sent to McKnight instead of the Town Clerk.
Town employee and district 4 RTM member Tom Grecco went the day of the December meeting trying to get permission to replace Wabba with one of McKights cronies, but was told that a special election could not be held because there was no notification in the Greenwich Time Newspaper.
Town Hall insiders have said that RTM Chairman McKnight has argued that he is not legally required to publish the special election. Apparently Mcknight's research has found that the RTM special elections are only published as a courtesy to taxpayers by the Greenwich Town Clerk.
Town Hall insiders have said that there have been heated discussions in the First Selectmans Offices, where Peter Tesei has told McKnight,"You have to publish the notice in the Greenwich Time as soon as you know that there is going to be a special election."
McKnight is still resisting publishing the notice that he says is not legally required. So look for the Byram special election notice for one or two Byram RTM seats just before the next meeting.

Teen leads police through yards
A 15-year-old Norwalk boy led Greenwich and Port Chester police on a wild, two-state, Christmas day chase for several hours following a car crash, police said.

Greenwich police received several reports Thursday afternoon of a teenager fleeing through residents' backyards, jumping over fences and hopping over porches, according to Sgt. John Slusarz. The teen matched the description of a young male wanted in an earlier Port Chester car chase.

Port Chester authorities told Greenwich police that earlier in the day they were following a young male who was driving a car when he crashed near King Street on the state line and ran off with an adult passenger. Port Chester police caught the adult, but the juvenile escaped from authorities into Greenwich, police said.

Slusarz said the teen, whom police did not identify due to his age, evaded authorities when he swam across the Byram River.

"He was last seen in the Byram River swimming across. We were unable to pick him up when he got to the other side," Slusarz said.

An hour later, Officer Joseph Turcsanyi spotted a teen covered in mud on Brook Crossway back near the state line running through backyards, police said.

Police caught the teen a short distance later, at 100 Glenville St., where officers arrested him about 3:50 p.m., police said.

Greenwich police charged him with interfering with a police officer and second-degree criminal trespassing, police said.

After the teen was apprehended by Greenwich authorities, police learned he was wanted by Norwalk police for a disorderly conduct charge, at which point he was transferred there, police said.

Slusarz said the teen was referred to the juvenile division of state Superior Court in Stamford.
Port Chester police did not release any information about Thursday's incident.

Cabrera Zuniga, 22, of 16755 Sioux Lane, Gaithersburg, Md., was arrested Dec. 18 and charged with driving while under the influence and traveling too fast, police said.

TODAY"S LOCAL HARD HITTING GREENWICH TIME EDITORIAL "Where did the bailout money go?"
Aside from the presidential election, perhaps nothing on the national scene has received as public attention as the ongoing rescues of a variety of ailing industries.


You would think that with all that attention, there should be no question about keeping track of where these billions of dollars given to the financial industry have gone - including what is being paid for and how decisions regarding use of the funds have been made.


Unfortunately, it hasn't worked out that way.


One bank after another has refused to discuss where the money, coming directly from U.S. taxpayers, has gone. Despite receiving billions of dollars in bailout funding, often as a result of their own poor decisions and bad ideas, these institutions have decided they don't need to account to anyone for where the money is going.


And there seems to be little anyone can do about it.


An effort to contact 21 banks that received a minimum of $1 billion each from the federal bailout resulted in nothing but dead ends. The Associated Press could not elicit specific answers from any institution during its investigation. ..... BLAH ..... BLAH ..... BLAH ..... BLAH ..... BLAH ..... BLAH ...... BLAH ...... BLAH .......

12/27/08 SEC Investigators Are Focusing On Greenwich Resident Walter “Feeder Fund” Noels. The Feds Are Digging For Clues At Greenwich Fairfield


Good News For Those Involved With The Madoff Ponzie Sheme....
Rich, white-collar criminals who steal un Goldly large amounts of money still seem to get more lenient sentences than poorer criminals.

The Feds Have Descended upon Walter Noel's
Hedge Fund Office In A Search For Clues

Wronged Fairfield County investors are telling Greenwich Roundup that Securities And Exchange Commission investigators have been playing catch up by swarming the offices of Walter "Feeder Fund" Noel since last Monday. The SEC investigation is a bid to learn just how much the Noel family knew about Madoff’s about fraudulent investment scheme.

Defrauded investors are saying that initially SEC officials from the agency's regulatory side were looking at Walter "Feeder Fund" Noel's business records, but now some of the SEC investigators are from the enforcement side of the agency.

This suggests that SEC is seeking a evidence of criminal wrong doing at the Greenwich Fairfield offices.

Worried investors, who have been defrauded, say that their phone and email messages to SEC officials or Greenwich Fairfield have not been returned.

Other hedge funds that acted as "Feeder Funds" on behalf of Bernard Madoff's 50 BILLION DOLLAR fraudulent investment operation also will be infiltrated by SEC regulatory and criminal investigators in the coming days if they haven't been already.

Defrauded investors are telling Greenwich Roundup that SEC Criminal Investigators may have been at Trentmont Capital Management in Rye New York as early as Tuesday of this week. Trentmont supposedly had $3.3 Billion of It's 6 Billion with Bernard Madoff's Ponzie Scheme.

Bernartd Madoff's Fraudulent Investment Vehicle differed from past scams because it used prominent third party intermediaries, such as Greenwich resident Walter "Feeder Fund" Noel to attract very wealthy investors.

Greenwich Fairfield pooled money for wealthy individuals and institutions, and were relied upon by their investors to watch over third party managers, like Bernard Madoff.

Fairfield Greenwich Investors have turned out to be some of the biggest losers in the Madoff’s Billion Dollar Fraud Fiasco. Walter "Feeder Fund" Noels had about $7.5 Billion of Greenwich Fairfield's $14 Billion in assets with the Madoff Fraud Fund.

Investors are saying that Walter Noel has the biggest hedge fund balls in all of Greenwich. Apparently Walter Noel's family is claiming that the bulk of the remaining $6.5 Billion rightfully belongs to them.

Apparently Walter Noel's five beautiful daughters and son in laws are prepared to spread the remaining Fairfield Greenwich Billions around the globe, if they have not done so already.

SEC criminal investigators are trying to determine exactly where the alleged Fairfield Greenwich Billions are housed and if Walter "Feeder Fund" Noel's family is truly entitled to any of remaining monies.

Since, Walter Noel's son in laws are mostly foreign nationals time is of the essence as the SEC criminal investigators poor over Greenwich Fairfield's offices.

Can you image how hard it would be to recover Billions from war torn Columbia if Walter Noel’s Columbian son in law made a deal to have drug lords launder a few Billion bucks?

5 PTAs seek overdue funds

By Colin Gustafson
Greenwich Time Staff Writer
Posted: 12/27/2008 01:00:00 AM EST

Five parent-teacher associations have joined nearly two dozen nonprofit groups across the country in accusing a Seattle-based company of failing to pay them tens of thousands of dollars in overdue fees.

Julie Faryniarz, president of the Greenwich PTA Council, said Bellevue, Wash.-based Count Me In, an online company that assists organizations like youth sports teams collect registration dues and donations, owes $75,000 in unreimbursed registration fees to the associations at Parkway, Old Greenwich, North Mianus, Cos Cob and North Street schools.

With the help of their attorneys, the five associations earlier this month sent formal complaint letters to the Washington state attorney general's office and the Federal Trade Commission, Faryniarz said.

They also sent Count Me In a letter demanding full repayment by Dec. 1. After not receiving the fees, they pursued legal action against the company, according to the PTA Council president, whose organization oversees all town public school PTAs.

"We want the money back," said Faryniarz, noting that the associations had used the online service for more than two years to process parents' registrations for afterschool programs and association memberships. "This is just bad business. They're taking away from our kids."

Messages left with Count Me In, a subsidiary of Arena Group Inc., in Bellevue, Wash., were not returned........

......Under its contract with the Greenwich associations, Faryniarz said, Count Me In collected registration fees from parents paying by credit card for various programs, then subtracted a handling fee of about $3 and sent the rest of the money on to the associations to fund their programs.


Julie Faryniarz The Greenwich PTA Council President Had Early Warning, But Hid The Fact That There Was Problems With The Parents PTA Payments.

No Fiscal Responsability:

The PTAs Even Secretly Agreed To A Payment Plan On Behalf Of The Parkway, Old Greenwich, North Mianus, Cos Cob and North Street School PTAs......

......But earlier this fall, Count Me In began to fall behind on its payments to the associations and, in mid-November, after making a single payment under an agreed-upon schedule, ceased payments altogether, Faryniarz said.

The associations used the money to fund afterschool classes, buy school supplies and pay for programs such as book drives, parties and fundraisers, said Alison Burns, PTA co-president for Parkway School......

Parents Enraged At Bellevue-Based 'Count Me In'


KIROTV


BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Parents and PTA leaders on Tuesday banged on the door of a Bellevue company that's at the center of a nationwide controversy after a KIRO 7 Eyewitness News story revealed the firm hasn't paid back money it owes to youth sports teams.


Dan Kully was among those looking for answers at the offices of Count Me In, a company that helps thousands of youth sports teams to help collect registration dues and donations.


"Seventy-five thousand dollars really hurts," Kully told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reporter Gary Horcher. "And the last people that anyone should be taking advantage of are kids."


VIDEO BACKSTORY: How Horcher Broke 'Count Me In' Story


Kully's sister runs a PTA for 15 schools in Greenwich, Conn., that hired Count Me In to supply a Web site and process credit card donations. He said the PTAs discovered Count Me In appeared to be keeping all the parents' money -- $75,000.


Count Me In's doors were open on Monday, and phones were being answered. On Tuesday, phone calls went unanswered and doors were locked.


Some little leagues said they're missing from $60,000 to $150,000 in registration money collected by Count Me In.


The company sent one local parent an email Tuesday that said, "We cannot provide your organization a payment plan as the timing and amount of future funding is uncertain. We will not make promises we do not know with 100% certainty can be kept."
