09/26/11 Shouldn't Greenwich High School Students Be Wearing Tyvek Suits Also?

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


Warning:

Do Try And Take Pictures Of Men In Tyvek Suits
At Greenwich High School Or
Greenwich Police Chief David Ridberg
Just Might Come And Arrest You,
Like They Did To Homeowner Bill Effros

Nothing To See Here Now Move Along:

"There's no need to alarmed if you see construction workers in Tyvek Suits or other personal protective equipment, this is for their safety...."

Johnny Might Not Be Able To Read, But He Sure Can Breath In PCBs:

This a snippet of a brochure that Greenwich High School Nieghbors found stuffed in their mailbox this afternoon.

The cover up continues, as Greenwich Board of Education insiders avoid blame for the Greenwich High School fiasco that going to cost home owners tens of millions of dollars.

When is Greenwich going to stop rewarding failure?

UPDATE:

09/26/11 Here Is A Question Hearst Newspaper Editor David McCumber And His Third Rate Reporters At The Greenwich Time Are Afraid To Ask Steve Anderson

If The Greenwich Board Of Education And Highly Paid Failed Administrators Lied And Covered Up In 2008, Then What's To Stop Them From Lying About Greenwich High School PCBs In 2011?

Can Greenwich High School Parents Trust The Greenwich Board Of Education About PCB removal near their children.

These are the same Greenwich Board of Education members who lied and covered up about the mold in the modular classrooms.

The only problem is PCBs Are A Hell of A Lot More Dangerous Than Mold, When It Comes To The Health Of Greenwich School Children.

PLEASE SEE:

09/26/11 The Daily Recap At Greenwich Roundup

09/26/11 Every Now And Then Greenwich Roundup Agrees With Greenwich Time Editor David McCumber

Arrested Editor: Don't Purge Online Arrest Records

David McCumber's DUI arrest provides a singular look into the pressing matter of digital arrest records' permanence.

Even if he could, this is one story David McCumber won’t edit.

On Saturday morning, Sept. 24, McCumber, the editorial director of the Hearst Connecticut Media Group, was charged with driving under the influence in Wilton. He is due Oct. 4 in state Superior Court in Norwalk. And like any DUI arrest, the news appeared in police blotters in several media outlets.

The incident also drives home a complex question that many in McCumber's profession wrestle with every day: How to handle the permanency of digital arrest records?

“What happened to me has nothing to do with how I feel about this,” said McCumber, editor of The Advocate and Greenwich Time. “The Internet is a much different platform. But I don’t think we should make any move to close records or to direct legislation to purge records. That’s a slippery slope in the wrong direction.”

With more newspapers going online, information from police blotters and other digital records remain forever accessible in cyberspace....

09/26/11 Ken Borsuk At The Greenwich Post Reports: Selectmen Restart The Clock On Witherell Project

The Nathaniel Witherell’s Project Renew is back on track after the Board of Selectmen granted new municipal improvement (MI) status for the renovation project.

In order for any construction project on a town building to proceed to the Planning and Zoning Commission, the selectmen must first grant the MI. According to David Ormsby, chairman of The Nathaniel Witherell Board of Directors, the current plan is to bring Project Renew before the commission on Oct. 11.

The selectmen initially granted the MI for Project Renew back in May, but were forced to withdraw it a month later because the project’s building committee wasn’t ready to go to the commission. By state law, once an MI is granted, the Planning and Zoning Commission must review it within 90 days. In this case, the Board of Estimate and Taxation (BET) had not approved financing so the final site plans could not be ready within that 90-day window.

In order for the commission not to be put in the position of having to vote down the project because of a lack of information, the selectmen instead withdrew the MI and effectively hit the pause button on the renovation.....

09/26/11 Greenwich Congressman And Cos Cob Resident Jim Himes: "I Need Your Help This Week"

Jim Himes for Congress

Dear Friends,

As you know, I have been working hard these last several months to offer a thoughtful considered voice in the cacophony of Washington. I do so because it’s the right thing to do, and because I have confidence that the pendulum will swing, and we will once again have a more pragmatic and constructive Congress.

In the meantime, I am under assault.

This week, the Republican National Campaign Committee robocalled into my district peddling the outright lie that I voted against FEMA aid for the victims of Hurricane Irene to protect Solyndra. In fact, I joined dozens of Republicans in voting against a bill that would have cut in half the Administration’s estimate of what FEMA requires to do its urgent work.

So I need your help. This Friday, I will close this campaign filing period and I want to send a clear message to the factually-challenged right wing vandals. Playing politics with people’s well-being is not what we need at this time. Help me make a strong financial showing by making a contribution to my campaign, click HERE.

This week, rather than focusing on putting Americans back to work, House Republicans pushed their ideological agenda again. It was another example of policy by hostage-taking. The aforementioned bill would destroy jobs and hold up critical disaster assistance for states and communities hit by recent natural disasters. It was defeated on the floor in strong bipartisan fashion and soundly rejected by the Senate. In the meantime, the critical work of passing a jobs agenda, of reforming education, and of stabilizing our fiscal situation once again takes a backseat. These are the priorities that will put our nation back on track.

In five days, I will need to publicly report my campaign contributions and it will help determine for local and national Republicans if they have a chance to pick up CT-4. I need your help- please click HERE and contribute to my campaign today.

Thank you for standing with me on these important issues, and for helping me swing that pendulum to a more civil and constructive Congress.

Sincerely,
Jim

Criticisms Of Greenwich Time Editor David McCumber's Performance May Have Driven Him To Drink (greenwichroundup.blogspot)
This Just In ....

Hearst Corporation Editor Charged With DUI

All This Time Greenwich Residents Thought Hearst Newspaper Editor David McCumber Wasn't Asleep At The Switch.

But, Now We Learn That....

The Greenwich Time Head Honcho Was Apparently Asleep At A Bar Stool !!!!

BUT WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM A DIM WITTED HEARST NEWSPAPER EDITOR THAT WANTED TO FIRE JOURNALIST HUNTER STOCKTON THOMPSON .....

At One Time, Before He Was Sent To The Hearst Newspaper Backwater, Known As The Greenwich Time, David McCumber Was The High Flying San Framsico Examiner Assistant Managing Editor That Was Responsible For Editing Hunter Thompson's Column.

Yes, drunk as a skunk McCumber wanted to fire Hunter S. Thompson, the creator of Gonzo journalism, a style of reporting where reporters involve themselves in the action to such a degree that they become central figures of their stories.

Clueless Editor David McCumber constantly bitched and moaned about the journalist and author who wrote The Rum Diary (1998), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1971) and Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72 (1973).

Thompson started writing about pornography and wrote an article on a San Francisco strip club. As part of his research, in the spring of 1985 he spent evenings at the Mitchell Brothers O'Farrell Theater striptease club in San Francisco and his experience there eventually evolved into a full-length novel tentatively titled The Night Manager. Neither the novel nor the article has been published.

Also, at that time Thompson was a writer for the San Francisco Examiner from the mid-1980s until the end of that decade. Thompson's editor at the Examiner, was dim witted Hearst Editor David McCumber, who would eventually steal Thompson's idea and make a mint writing about the Mitchell brothers, while he was stabbing Thompson in the back, reportedly telling Hearst Corporation executives that he was "deeply disappointed" in the quality of Thompson's Examiner columns.

No wonder Hunter Thompson ended his life with a self inflicted gun shot wound to the head.

You've basically got a no talent bum like editor David McCumber, whining about your work and then turning around a using what he has learned to write a book and get promoted as editor of Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
