12/16/09 The Hearst Corporation Says: No Company Christmas Party For Greenwich Time Workers

Hearst Corporation Plays Scrooge With The Few Remaining Greenwich Time Employees

With Greenwich Time ad sales down as much as 60%, the Hearst Corporation can't afford a Christmas party for it's few remaining employees.

Greenwich Time Insiders are complaining to Greenwich Roundup that they are being asked to go to a pot luck lunch at the Advocate / Greenwich Time's drab office at the River Bend office park.

One can almost hear the Greenwich Time staffers singing, ""Jingle Bells , Hearst smells The Greenwich Time laid an egg. Oh What fun it is to ride a beat up chevrolet to the unemployment office, Hey....."


"Deck the Halls with laughing gases mwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Watch reporters kick those editors asses......"

Things are so bad, the local rag couldn't even barter a Greenwich Time ad for a Christmas party at a local restaurant.

In similar news that is too funny to make up, Goldman Sachs has cancelled all of their christmas parties.

“The last thing they want are pictures showing up of lavish parties while everyone is talking about their paying lavish bonuses,” Mr. Hall said. “This is just not the time to be flaunting it.”

12/16/09 The Paul Burke Case Shows How News Gets Reported In Greenwich

We have all seen the Greenwich Time Headlines About Paul Burke......

A Greenwich High School lacrosse coach recently convicted of drunken driving will face mandatory jail time when he is sentenced in January after a Superior Court judge ruled Friday he will be treated as a second-time offender.

Paul Burke, 43, of New Canaan, can be sentenced to between 120 days and two years in prison for a June 2008 incident in which he crashed his car into a stone wall in Darien while under the influence of alcohol.

Burke was convicted by a jury in November after three days of trial.....

.....Currently, the coach and history teacher has been placed on paid administrative leave at Greenwich High School pending a review of his situation, according to school district officials.

According to the arrest warrant, Burke had a blood-alcohol content of .29 percent -- more than triple the legal limit -- and was coming from Greenwich at the time of the crash.

During his time as coach, Burke led the boys varsity lacrosse team to the school's first Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference championship in 2007. The Cardinals reached the state final that year.

In the 2009 spring season, after news of his arrest came out, the team finished 10-6 overall.

What The Greenwich Time Fails To Report Is That.....

Concerned parents repeatedly approached the Greenwich Time, but were ignored, because reporters were too afraid to take on the coach of the Greenwich lacrosse team.

But When The Parents Came To Greenwich Roundup The Truth Came Out .....

Soon Out Of Town Blog Readers Started Commenting About High School Drunkards Like Paul Burke:

To the Editor,

On Saturday night, one of the Darien High School nurse's was arrested for serving alcohol to minors. Her daughter, a junior at the DHS,invited what appears to be most of the junior class.

The police showed up and did their job. Most likely the 50+ cars tipped someone off. Or was it someone puking in the bushes?A few years ago, the Darien girl's varsity lacrosse coach got a "slap on the wrist" for drinking with some of her players at a party. The police were not involved and the story was put to rest very quickly. Who would want to peg THE COACH OF THE YEAR as anything but a talented coach?

Recently, in Darien, the Greenwich boy's lacrosse coach was arrested for his 3rd or 4th DWI. The Greenwich Superintendent removed the guy from his coaching position. That was the right thing to do? ..;....

Here was one of the first emails About Coach Paul Burke.....

Tue, Mar 10, 2009 at 6:59 PM

As a local parent and sports mom, I was recently notified that the Lacrosse coach Paul Burke at GHS has recently received his 4th DWI. I am stunned and outraged that this man still hold this position of leadership and authority!

Where is the local news coverage?

That would explain the lack of town outrage - though there are many upset parents at GHS. This lackadaisical handling of our schools also affects real estate values. Perhaps you can look into this or open a discussion. What do you think?

Here is another email......

Tue, Mar 10, 2009 at 8:17 PM

There was a meeting last night at the high school where coach Paul Burke read a prepared statement. He has figured out a way to get out of 4 DWI's and avoid jail by having his arraignment delayed by several weeks so he only has 3 DWIs within a certain period.

I am not up on the exact specifics and I was not at the meeting last night but heard about it from friends who were there. There was no Greenwich Time coverage today in the paper - I guess I should not be surprised.

I am very concerned about my incoming lacrosse player.

Not the role model I was hoping for.
