06/20/10 Did Foley divorce personal, work life?

Topix Greenwich
Greenwich News - June 20, 2010
It was late 2001, and Thomas C. Foley , a Greenwich investor and a major Republican Party fundraiser, was immersed in a contentious and protracted battle with his ex-wife for custody of his 11-year-old son.
Dear Editor, Imagine, if you will, living in a neighborhood where all of your neighbors hate you. They routinely walk through your yard and many throw rocks through your windows. You have one loyal friend in your life but he lives a couple of towns over and, though he used to visit and give you a chance to sit on your porch and enjoy the fresh air -- because there is strength in numbers -- he rarely visits anymore.
You try to live your life. You go to the coffee shop but people still scorn you. You hire a police officer to make sure that the people walking through your yard are not carrying rocks. You don't stop them. You just want to make sure that they don't throw rocks through your windows.
Occasionally you have to take action against a neighbor who bursts into your living room and smashes your TV. It's not that they want to steal it -- they just don't want you to have it. Then, yesterday, the insult of all insults:
That good friend of yours from a couple of towns over comes to your neighborhood ... but he doesn't come to see you. He stops next door and drops off a cheesecake to the guy who lives there -- the guy who throws the most rocks at your windows. It's not any cheesecake, though, it's a huge Godiva chocolate cheesecake in a beautiful gold box with a hand-tied ribbon.
How's that make you feel?
Israel has been on the front lines of a holy war, waged by her neighbors against the world since the nation's founding in 1948. Israel has endured more relentless attacks than any other nation on earth.
Her Muslim neighbors vow to never recognize her right to exist, let alone the right of her citizens to move safely through their lands.
Recently there was controversy over the Mavi Marmara incident. In short, Israel has made a decision that requires Gaza-bound ships put into a nearby Israeli port, submit to inspection, and have the cargo delivered by land, at Israel's expense, to its destination.
It's not a terribly onerous blockade. It doesn't prevent any legal cargo from entering Gaza -- just the rocket launchers and bomb components that are used to kill Israel's citizens.

Excerpts From Peter Schiff's Endorsement Of Rick Torres:
"It's not just about electing a Republican; it's about electing the right Republican. There are a lot of Republicans in Congress right now and most of them are part of the problem, not part of the solution. So if you really believe in the Constitution, free market capitalism, in individual liberty, in sound money, you have to vote for those things. You have to vote for someone who is committed to those things. If you think everything is okay in Washington, if you like the status quo, then go ahead and rubber stamp the convention's nominee. But if you really want real change, then you're going to have to support a candidate who will deliver that change."
"And from what I know of Rick Torres, he is the guy in this race, he is the only person in this race that has a chance of bringing those values back to Washington. That is why I support him."
"And if there was ever a year when we can beat back the establishment, and elect a candidate that will really bring back our values and principles to Washington, this is the year to do it. And don't accept the word from the party elite that no you can't win. A real grassroots campaign can win, it can win in Connecticut, and it can win 2010. And I thank everyone for coming and I wish Rick the best of luck."

"Star and I have a shared background and a common message. We both suffered under the welfare state and with hard work and some luck both of us were able to join the free and prosperous economy that most Americans take for granted. Like me, Star understands that capitalism creates wealth and that government destroys wealth. Wealth grows the economy and creates jobs, a concept lost on Jim Himes and Nancy Pelosi. "
Rick Torres Continues ...
"I am running for Congress to demonstrate that authentic American conservatism is the truest form of 'social-justice.' For too long my native Bridgeport has been held in bondage to the socialist experiments of the Democratic Party. As a Congressman I will work to end schemes of wealth redistribution and liberate my city of Bridgeport from the clutches of the Democratic Machine. With Star Parker's endorsement I am all the more confident that I will beat Jim Himes and that I will have a chance to serve the people of Connecticut. "
Rick Torres has made a lot of progress in a short period of time, but his campaign still needs contributions and financial help to restore the first principles of this exceptional nation.

Rick Torres may be considered an anomaly by some. Not only is he a Republican in a city where Democrats outweigh the GOP faithful, he's a Latino Republican.
On a warm spring morning, Torres, 51, sits at a table outside the Harborview Market, the business he owns in the neighborhood where he lives, talking about the life experiences that shaped him into the staunch conservative he is today.
Torres is working hard to secure the Republican nomination -- there are six candidates -- to unseat Democrat U.S. Rep Jim Himes in the Fourth Congressional District. It would be easier, especially in Bridgeport, to be a Democrat.
Hispanics tend to vote Democrat. And, in fact, at one point Torres himself was a Democrat. Not any more. Not after living across the street from the P.T. Barnum housing complex in Section 8 housing -- housing subsidized by the government -- after he father moved the family back to the U.S. from Cuba in 1967.
"I believe in me, I believe in you," Torres said.
"I don't believe in the government. The problem with the government is they don't get it right. I want to fix it and the only way to fix it is to get government out of it."
He wants, he said, to "liberate the people living in public housing ... It was intended to help, but it does the opposite. The children don't see anyone who's never been on welfare. Everyone's been on welfare so long, that's the norm for them."
Torres said he thinks there should be a homesteader plan--if you've lived in public housing for 10 years or more, it's yours. "Get them off welfare, let them earn as much as they can, and keep as much as they can," he said.
"Open the doors of education. That's what you and I take for granted. That's foreign to them.
That's just the way it is and there's no other way to say it better." He admits that some of his stands are not always popular with his customers, but that doesn't bother him, Torres said, as he points to a man sitting inside. "That guy, he's a Socialist." Going against the grain, the accepted way to do things, the easiest way, is not something new for Torres.....
Sarah Kramer, # 9 of Greenwich High School during the introductions at the 2010 Girls Lacrosse State Division 1 Finals at Bunnell High School, Stratford, Saturday afternoon, June 12, 2010.....
Rick Torres, candidate in Connecticut's 4th Congressional district, has highlighted what he believes to be the critical distinctions between him and his rivals in the race.
Anyone who runs for office to better our country deserves respect, only certain policies warrant support. Labels are too often misleading, which is why policies matter.
To illustrate, Torres points to a press release by rival Rob Merkle, who professes to be a fiscal conservative. In the release, Merkle claims to be a '"small business owner who strives to reduce the size, reach and burden of the federal government."
"His policies do anything but reduce the size of government," Torres notes.
"He is merely another big-government Republican." Torres points to just two of the many big government solutions
Merkle advocates:
1. In a poor attempt to 'help' the economy, Merkle praises the SBA loan program. "The Small Business Administration is a government agency which actually takes taxpayer monies and decides who to loan it to. It is another form of corporate welfare," Torres says.
2. Another of Merkle's poor attempts to revive the economy is virtually identical to the 'jobs plan' of Barack Obama. It is to "mandate" banks to make loans to small businesses. Torres points out that banks are private enterprises. "Government mandating banks to give loans to property owners resulted in the near collapse of our economy. Yet Merkle wants the government to repeat this same mistake and hopes for a different outcome."
"These policies led to the budget deficits, tax increases and unemployment we have today. We cannot spend our way out of a recession or tax our way to prosperity. Clearly, a conservative should know this," Torres asserted.
The two Democratic gubernatorial contenders - Ned Lamont and Dannel Malloy - are scheduled to debate at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the local NBC affiliate studio in West Hartford.

06/20/10 Lovely' young woman who worked at a home on Lake Avenue gone, her killer sentenced yesterday to 20 years in prison for 2008 homicide

The mother of a slain young woman who worked as a nanny in Greenwich, goes to court to see her daughter's killer.

She traveled from Ecuador to see the killer who strangled her daughter with an electric cord get sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Yes it is true, the killer got only 20 years in prison for the 2008 homicide.

"There is nothing that can justify what he did," Alicia Bueno told the judge at the sentencing of Diego Leonardo Campoverde-Cabrera, 28, for the aggravated manslaughter of Andrea Catalina Reinoso-Bueno, 22.

Ms. Bueno traveled from Cuenca, Ecuador, for the sentencing. She was dressed all in black and spoke through a Spanish translator.

"I am condemned to live without my daughter for my whole life. I understand for him it will be painful to spend many years in prison but you can't pay for a life with money or years in prison," Ms. Bueno said. "My daughter paid with her life and she did nothing wrong. There is no reason. No reason."

Diego Leonardo Campoverde-Cabrera also spoke prior to his sentencing, and during an apology to the family member of the victim, he said "Just like them, I am going through a lot of pain because I lost the woman I love."

Superior Court Judge Paul DePascale was dismayed by Campoverde-Cabrera's logic and said, "The difference, sir, between what you feel and what they feel is that they bear no responsibility for what you did."

On Nov. 16, 2008, police officers responded to a 911 call at the victim's Windsor Street apartment and when Diego Leonardo Campoverde-Cabrera answered the door the officer found Reinoso-Bueno's partially clothed body inside, officials said.

The young woman had ligature marks below her jawline from being strangled, Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Kelly Simpson said, adding that she also had head trauma and was stabbed twice in the torso with a metal-tipped curling iron.

Ms. Reinoso-Bueno had just returned to her boyfriend's apartment after spending a week in Greenwich, Conn., where she worked as a nanny, officials said. The family she worked for in Greenwich helped identify her body.

Diego Leonardo Campoverde-Cabrera was originally charged with murder but pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter in April. Under the plea deal DePascale could have sentenced the undocumented Ecuadorian to up to 26 years in prison.

Diego Leonardo Campoverde-Cabrera has spent the past 566 days in Hudson County jail in Kearny where he said he has been studying the Bible. He must serve 17 years of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole.

After the sentencing Ms. Reinoso-Bueno's cousin, Jeanneth Leon, quickly broke into tears while telling of a nine-month period during which she lived with the victim in Queens.

"All the time she was happy, loving, friendly," said Ms. Leon, whose husband, Eduardo Rangel, also attended the sentencing. "She was so nice with us and with our daughter. She was very lovely."
