06/12/10 Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei Turns A Blind Eye To The Town's Seniors As They Are Abused By Sam Deibler

You Wont Read This In The Greenwich Time ....


It's Up To Greenwich Bloggers And Citizen Journalists Like Bill Clarke To Do The Job Of The Local "Lamestream" Media


Greenwich Senior Citizens Are Hungry Angry And Unhappy


Dirty Work at the Senior Center


There are days when your scribe is ashamed to be a citizen of the Town of Greenwich. Today is one of them.

For this morning Marva, one of the Town's most dedicated and hard-working employees, who for many years has prepared and served many tens of thousands of tasty home-cooked meals to the folks at the Senior Center, was summarily fired. Laurette Helmrich and Sam Deibler marched into the kitchen together and demanded her keys. She was told to put her personal effects into a cardboard box, and to leave the building and not come back.

As a Town building, the Senior/Arts Center is open to anyone and everyone during its regular hours. Marva, who also happens to hold a part-time job in the building with a private non-governmental agency, has as much right to be in the building as anyone else. Laurette and Sam's high-handed behavior is a textbook example of a lawsuit in the making.

As for Marva, she is in shock. She has worked for the Town for decades, and is only a year or so away from being eligible for her pension. Do you think something may be rotten in the Town of Greenwich, dear reader?

Marva is one of the most competent and dedicated workers this Town has ever seen. The seniors adore her. If the Senior Center were still under the purview of the Parks & Rec Department, this would never have happened.

But things changed. The Commission on Aging took it over. Laurette, who came to the Senior Center from Nathaniel Witherell, has been agitating for several years to bring in the same commercial for-profit food service company used by the nursing home, and to get rid of the independent Town of Greenwich employee Marva and her smoothly-running operation. Recently, food service executive types in fancy suits have been prowling around the Senior Center, sniffing out and scenting a new source of revenue in the offing. And sure enough: it was recently announced that they will be taking over Marva's operation on July 1.

The price of the new portion-controlled assembly-line meals will jump 33%. The quality will almost assuredly go down--how can you improve on Marva's home cooking? But Laurette and Sam will no doubt have earned the gratitude of the food service honchos for their help in landing this profitable new contract, and if the seniors get the short end of the stick, well, they're not exactly the most vocal or powerful constituency in Greenwich, are they?

It's too bad that Charles Dickens is no longer around to roast the Town of Greenwich for this despicable and rotten behavior towards Marva, not to mention the many people for whom her cooking has long been their main meal of the day. But he's not, and his type of righteous indignation is not considered fashionable in this Town these days. Probably most people in Greenwich will simply shrug their shoulders and say, so what?

But if there are any people out there who happen to believe that what happened to Marva this morning is shameful and wrong, here are the names of your neighbors who are in charge of this fiasco:

In a perfect world, Marva would be re-hired, and Laurette and Sam would be the ones told to put their personal belongings into a box and get out. And the greedy for-profit food service people would be told to get out and stay out. But Greenwich, Connecticut is far from a perfect world, and today it has become markedly less so.

Shame on the Town of Greenwich!

06/12/10 “Is Greenwich ready for bestiality?”


A Slave Escapes, a Story Unfolds - New York Times


By VIVIEN SCHWEITZER

RIVERSIDE, Conn. — “Is Greenwich ready for bestiality?” a well-dressed woman said during the intermission of Hans Werner Henze’s “El Cimarrón” (“The Runaway Slave”), which opened on Thursday evening at the Theater at St. Catherine of Siena in the Riverside section of Greenwich.

She was referring to indecent acts committed by Esteban Montejo, the real-life slave of the title, who lived alone in the forest for years after escaping the Cuban sugar plantation where he was born in 1860. Bestiality aside, a Catholic church in this leafy hedge-fund homeland might seem an unlikely place to stage a rare revival of Mr. Henze’s anti-priesthood, anti-American, anti-capitalist ode, the major event of this year’s Greenwich Music Festival.

But the enthusiastic reception awarded Ted Huffman’s excellent new production of the work demonstrated the open-minded attitude and artistic freedom often denied Mr. Henze, 83 — still an active composer and member of the Communist Party in Italy, where he has lived for more than 50 years. His left-wing politics and homosexuality made life difficult in Germany, his native country. His music also initially received a hostile welcome, deemed too expressive for the postwar avant-garde but too thorny for general consumption.

Mr. Henze wrote “El Cimarrón,” a striking musical theater work, in 1970 while living in Cuba. It is based on the “Autobiography of a Runaway Slave” by Miguel Barnet, who conducted extensive interviews with Montejo. After hiding in the forest, Montejo fought in the Cuban War of Independence in the late 1890s, saw the transition to Castro’s government and died at 113 in 1973.....

“El Cimarrón” continues on Saturday and Sunday at
