11/30/07 - Forget About Judge Robinson




The village plans to proceed with a March 18 election for the Board of Trustees, although allegations of Hispanic-voter discrimination that halted a previous election have yet to be resolved.


The board posted notice this month that it would seek to fill five of the six trustee seats - those held by Gregory Adams, Domenick Cicatelli, John Crane, Joseph Kenner and Robert Sorensen. Candidates will compete for two three-year terms, two two-year terms and one one-year term.


Party leaders are beginning to plan for the election, even though Port Chester awaits U.S. District Judge Stephen Robinson's decision on whether its current at-large election system violates the Voting Rights Act.


His ruling could change how Port Chester's elections are conducted by forcing the village to switch from its at-large, village-wide voting system to one in which trustees are elected from individual districts.......

11/29/07 - Something Smells At Eber Brother's In Port Chester. Oh No! It's Remy!!!!!!


HEADLINE:



STORY:


So I used to have a fish at my last office (Eber Wine and Liquor).. People thought I was crazy at first but it soon became the attraction of the building... I even named him Remy (Martin Cognac) after one of our major brands that we carried.... This is the sad news I passed on to my ex-coworkers...


It is with deepest regret that we inform you of the passing of Remy, the goldfish. Purchased back in 2002 as a birthday present for $0.99 for his loving guardian, he grew up in Yorktown Heights, NY. He then made the move south county to White Plains and soon after settled into a wonderful foster home at Eber Bros Inc in Port Chester, NY.


Although at first, employees thought his owner was nuts for bringing him in, he was enveloped with love and tender care by many friends and co-workers. Unfortunately, no one was at his side when he went belly up on Sunday, November 25, 2007, but his memory will forever be ingrained into the warehouse-turned-shabby-office at 305 South Regent.


Remy's memory will live on forever in the soul of the next fish that will replace him today at lunch time. May he rest in peace in the big ocean in the sky. Peace be with you all.

ode to my fish...
by ao
i am a fish

i swim in the sea
i have a brain
the size of a pea

i don't do anything
just float all day
waiting for food
to come my way

it's hard to believe
i survived this long
5 years for a fish?
that must be wrong!

at funerals you know
the situation is tense
but i'll be replaced
for 99 cents

my name was remy
i was a goldfish
the folks at eber
i surely shall missh'

11/29/07 - The revised charter, which needs approval would solidify Rye Brook's interest in the library: PC Library Board President Melissa DeVincenzo


HEADLINE:




QUOTE:


"No one has presented a governance model that I'm crazy about. Appointing their own members does not necessarily lead to public accountability." - Mayor Dennis Pilla


STORY:


Attorneys are drafting a new charter and intermunicipal agreement for the Port Chester Public Library, signaling progress in the slow-moving negotiations over the library's funding.


The villages of Port Chester and Rye Brook and the library board have agreed to retain the law firm Turner & Turner of Croton-on-Hudson to rewrite the library's 1877 charter. The three entities will share the legal costs, which are capped at $15,000.


...DeVincenzo credited the subcommittees with the recent progress in negotiations. Rye Brook tentatively has agreed to increase its share of the library's taxpayer funding from 30 percent to 35 percent and share equally the cost of capital improvements with Port Chester, she said...

...Port Chester Mayor Dennis Pilla said his biggest concern is governance of the library. Trustees now are chosen by the library board, but Pilla has proposed that each village get to appoint some members....

11/29/07 - Translation Needed For This Article About Acosta, Brakewood, Crane, Didden, Lopez, Pilla, Quiroz, And Sorensen







Y que paso con los concejales seleccionados...no hay ningun Hispano representante...porque?
Cuando el Alcalde de Port Chester, Dennis Pilla, hizo un llamado a la gente de Port Chester para seleccionar a dos concejales, ya que habian dos asientos libres (siempre hay seis concejales y un alcalde), tres Hispanos sometieron su nombre y su CV para ser tomados en cuenta. Ellos eran Ariel Acosta, pastor de un Iglesia Pentacostal en Port Chester, Blanca Lopez, Directora de un Programa de Vivienda sin fines de lucro, y Walter Quiroz, contador de impuestos.



Y que paso?

De los 12 candidatos que postularon, la junta de Concejales apuntaron a dos afro-americanos a que cubrieran estas dos posiciones.



Y porque no apuntaron Hispanos?....









UPDATE:







Has Provided A Translation:




Many have been asking about the English translation to the last post, so nice to see that our blog is getting around...here it is:

When Mayor Dennis Pilla invited Port Chester residents to submit their letters of interests and resumes for village trustee appointments, three Hispanics answered Pilla's call...they were Rev. Ariel Acosta, Blanca Lopez, Director of a not for profit housing program, and Walter Quiroz, a tax accountant.

So what happened?

From the twelve candidates who sought appointments, the Board of Trustees appointed two African American men for the two open seats.

And why wasn't a Hispanic appointed?



It is not that there weren't any Hispanic candidates who were not prepared for this position. It is the opinion of this writer that Ms. Lopez was the best candidate for this position, but the two Republican Trustees, Robert Sorensen and Dominick Cicatelli, and the formerly registered Republican and now Independent Trustee, John Crane decided not to vote for her. Why?...because they felt that Lopez was too involved in politics since she was the Campaingn Chair for Trustee Brakewood and former Trustee Pilla when they ran two years ago, and also Chair for Mayor Pilla, when he ran last year. So, Lopez only received votes from Mayor Pilla and Trustee Brakewood in her quest to becoming appointed.

Wow...never in the history of Port Chester, has a Hispanic woman...an immigrant woman, I should say, like Lopez been involved in promoting change for this community and in such a short time; and that is possibly why, because of her involvement, that is has also created some backlash, because we all know that when an individual or group of people advance in this social system that we live in, there will always be people who will try to stop their progress.

So, lets analyze reasons why these three Hispanic candidates were not appointed....



Early last year, Rev. Acosta ran for Trustee with the Republican team. He ran with Mr. Cicatelli, and Bart Didden, our favorite village racist who was the mastermind behind the so called anonymous flyers where he referred to Lopez as a "wolf dressed in sheep's clothing and that she was "in bed with Pilla." It was discovered that he had assistance from current Trustee John Crane and then Board of Education President Dominick Bencivenga with the planning and editing for this flyer. Everything came out in the open when the Dept. of Justice questioned Didden and he immediately vomited to the feds everything he knew and those involved.

So, it seems that although Rev. Acosta wanted to become involved in this campaign to promote Hispanic participation and most importantly, get the Hispanic vote, the Republicans used him to promote their stance with Hispanics and to show the feds that they had recruited a Hispanic to run with them. Sadly, although Rev. Acosta wanted to be appointed to one of the open trustee spots, nobody voted for him, not even his republican counterparts, Cicatelli or Sorensen. I think that the Republicans used Acosta for their own benefit, and when he needed them they left him out to dry. Poor Reverend, he did not deserve this.

Mr. Quiroz also submitted his resume like a good citizen, but I do not think that he knew much about what this position entailed.

Well, so now lets analyze why

Lopez was not appointed, and this will be easy:

First, there is a rumor in PC that Trustee Sorensen wants to run for mayor in two years, and for trustee this coming March, so now he has to work very hard to please the Republican party and he needs to strenghten his position in it. The problem with Sorensen is that he owes a lot of money to the village because he has not paid his parking tickets. I do not think that PC voters will suppot a candidate who owes money to the village and who has shown to be a bad example for village voters. Maybe Sorensen should give up some or all of the $5k he gets from serving as trustee every year, and maybe that will satisfy his debt.

On the other hand. Mr. Cicatelli just looks lost....he lost the mayoral election, and now he is serving a term that has already expired. It seems that his vote against Lopez, was simply for revenge.... well, that's politics.

So what about Crane....who changed his party affiliation from Republican to Independent a couple of months ago, and who also wanted to be appointed Village justice earlier this year. Unfortunately, Crane, an attorney, represents landlords like Great American, who exploit Hispanics and rent "problematic" apartments and rooms. Seeing how Lopez works in the housing area and knows about housing policies and laws, she may have been seen as a challenge for Crane. Also, it is not surprising that he voted against her since he was involved in the creation of the flyer which was sent to every voter in Port Chester.

There are so many things going on in this little village. It reminds me of a Mexican soap called "Pueblo Chico, Infierno Grande." But, we have to recognize that the appointments made by the trustees was a slap in the face to Hispanics. How is it possible that in a community with a large Hispanic population, there is no Hispanic representative? However, it is also important to understand that if and when a Hispanic candidate runs for office, he or she must be professionally prepared and want what is best for the entire community. But that person must also know about the problems and challenges faced by immigrants as they acculturate into American society.

It is important that we as voters learn and understand each candidate's platforms and the relationship that they will have or have with the Hispanic community, in order to be assured that they will perform a responsible job once in office.

WHY ISN'T THAT COMIC BOOK KNOWN AS AMERICANA LATINA A BILINGUAL PUBLICATION LIKE 365 PORT CHESTER IS?


Well Maybe it is because Richard Abel, the so-called publisher and Jananne Abel, the so-called editor of Americana Latina don't speak spanish.


Further, these two rarely interact with the hispanic community of Port Chester. There main interaction with the hispanic community is to exploit the poor hispanic woman that cleans the Americana Latina offices at 38 Broad Street. (We are currently withholding the poor hispanic woman's name, because she appears to be a victim of criminal activity and not a public figure like Richard and Jananne Abel)


Richard And Jananne Abel sure do save a lot of money by not paying for this this poor hispanic woman's disability insurance, social security insurance and unemployment insurance.


I sure hope this poor hispanic woman was not planning on getting social security when she retires from cleaaning the Americana Latina offices.


Please pray that this poor hispanic woman isn't hurt or diabled while cleaning at the Americana Latina offices, or at Richard Abel's father's house in Rye Brook.


If she gets hurt she can not get disability or unemployment benefits, because the greedy Abel's wanted to save a few bucks.


Please Read This Post For More Information About How The Greedy Abel's And American Latina exploit this poor woman.



11/27/07 - Communication Breakdown - There was a detainer warrant. Shoud Port Chester police have arrestted the sex offender and put him in jail?


Jose M. Broudwiack posted the $10,000 bail as set by North Salem Town Justice John J. Johnston Jr. on Oct. 31 and has been free ever since.
Judge Johnston has declined to comment on the bail, and Mackin, the other town justice, handled last night's docket.


HEADLINE:




QUOTE:


"The people have reliable information that the defendant has fled the jurisdiction"


STORY:


NORTH SALEM - Town Justice Ralph Mackin issued an arrest warrant last night for a convicted sex offender and illegal immigrant who failed to appear in court for arraignment on a misdemeanor charge of failing to register as a sex offender.


Mackin also revoked $10,000 bail for Jose M. Broudwiack, 48, whose last known address was on Sugar Hill Road in the Purdys section of town.


...That information came after Broudwiack was arrested in Port Chester, where he was accused of driving with a suspended license. He failed to appear in Port Chester court Nov. 9 on that misdemeanor charge .....


...State police investigators at the Somers barracks determined that Broudwiack, who also goes by the surname Broudwiack-Lartiga, was convicted in California in 1999 of a sex crime against a child younger than 14. He was in the country illegally at the time. He served time in a California jail and was made to register as a sex offender before being deported to his native Peru in 2003....

...Federal authorities had issued a detainer warrant for Broudwiack after his Oct. 31 arrest by state police in connection with failing to register.



The warrant meant that once Broudwiack was in a holding facility, such as a county jail, he would be held on the warrant, even if he managed to make bail.



But the warrant could never be enforced because Broudwiack never made it to jail....


....Sometime after that, he re-entered the country illegally again and wound up living in Purdys and working at el Palacio de Los Mariscos restaurant on Main Street in Port Chester, authorities said....

UPDATE:

Purdys residents outraged over sex offender who skipped bail


The Journal News

NORTH SALEM - Neighbors of an unregistered sex offender who missed his court appearance are outraged no one stopped him before he apparently skipped town.

Jose M. Broudwiack, 48, who failed to appear in court Monday for arraignment on a misdemeanor charge of failing to register as a sex offender, so far has not been found and is believed to have left the area, authorities said. He posted the $10,000 bail set by Town Justice John J. Johnston Jr. on Oct. 31 and has been free ever since. Johnston has declined to comment on the bail.

"Judge Johnston had the power to stop this man, and he dropped the ball," resident Clare Gasparri said last night. "Because he dropped the ball, that man fled the jurisdiction. He will hurt another child, and that will be on Johnston when that happens."


Broudwiack, whose last known address was 2 Sugar Hill Road in the Purdys section of town, was arrested Oct. 31 by state police after they learned he had been living in Purdys for about two years without registering. That information came after Broudwiack was arrested in Port Chester, where he was accused of driving with a suspended license. He failed to appear in Port Chester court Nov. 9 on that misdemeanor charge.....

....."(Johnston's) decision really degraded the efforts of the local and state police," said Dough Dligulil, a resident on Sugar Hill Road.
Dligulil said he was one of the people who went door to door alerting neighbors that Broudwiack was a sex offender and living in their neighborhood.


When asked what he thought of his efforts in light of this latest turn in the case, Dligulil said, "It makes you feel like a ... total schmo. ... I can't believe how many hours I spent on the computer researching this guy. I just had spinal surgery and there I was, limping around door to door to tell people. But what I feel bad about now is that this guy is somewhere, setting up in a new community, maybe next door to some 1-year-old girl, and the family of that little girl has no idea that he's a sex offender ........

11/26/07 - Thanks To Ex-Long Time United Hospital Chairman Bruno Gioffre Port Chester's Loss Is White Plain's Gain


The hospital is a bedrock institution that White Plains Residents would never trade for a hotel.




Journal News


WHITE PLAINS - Midway through a major renovation, White Plains Hospital Center last week announced another - a $50 million-plus reconstruction that will move the hospital's main entrance to Maple Avenue and add 85,000 square feet of new operating rooms, maternity wards and radiology labs.


The project would come on top of other renovations costing $150 million in the past 15 years, including the continuing reconstruction of the hospital's emergency room suite, and could be followed by another round of rebuilding a few years from now, said Jon Schandler, the hospital's president.....


... United Hospital in Port Chester - closed in the past four years, Schandler said in presenting the plan to the Common Council last week. Annual emergency room ...


....The bulk of the new construction would occur on Davis Avenue, where an administration building known as Winslow Hall would be demolished and replaced with a six-story wing of maternity, operating and radiology rooms. On Maple Avenue, a glassy, two-story entrance and a traffic circle would be built. On Post Road, an elevated, enclosed walkway would cross over Longview Avenue to connect the hospital with a municipal parking garage that is now under construction.


The renovation will add 24 beds in single rooms, but the bed count will not change because 24 existing rooms will be converted from doubles to singles, allowing the hospital to stay within its licensed capacity of 277 beds.....

11/24/07 - The Rye Brook Boys Might Have Won The Election, But The Port Chester Boys Will Be In Control Of All The Rye Town Cash - Terenzi Can't Wait!


Port Chester Trustee Bob "Some Folks Say I Drink A Little Too Much" Sorensen And Disgraced ex-Rye Town Accountant Sam "I Am So Sleazy" Terenzi Went To A Local Port Chester Financial Institution On Behalf Of Supervisor Elect Joe Carvin.


The two Port Chester new financial wiz kids were making all kinds of representations about how Rye Town Supervisor Elect Joe Carvin is looking to move large sums of money around.


Port Chester Trustee Bob Sorensen and failed Conservative candidate Sam Terenzi have been telling local bankers they will be in charge of moving money around for the Town Of Rye.


Didn't Joe Carvin tell the Journal News interviewers that Sam Terenzi was in no way involved in his campaign or future administration?


I guess "ole" Joe Carvin got caught lying again.


It looks like that Joe Carvin will soon officially appoint Sam "I Am So Sleazy" Terenzi as the financial czar of the Town Of Rye.


What else was Terenzi promised by Joe Carvin?


Is this Joe Carvin's version of "Jobs For The Boys"


Maybe it's "Joe's Jobs For Cowboys"


Does Terenzi have to give Joe Carvin the conservative line in 4 years?


Oh wait I forgot, Sam Terenzi does not control the conservative line.


Rye Town Conservative Chairman Gene Branca controls the Rye Town Conservative Line.


Joe Carvin's Cowboys apparently scared the hell out of local bankers who contacted Rye Town Supervisor Bobby Moribito.


At the last Rye Town Board Meeting, Supervisor Bobby Morabito exposed the fact that Port Chester Trustee Bob Sorensen and Sam Terenzi were representing the Town Of Rye, and was not authorized by the current administration, to do so.


It looks like there is going to be fire works in the new Carvin Administration.


Joe Carvin's right hand man, Richard "The Rye Town Drama Queen Who Files False Police Reports" Abel is bashing Port Chester Trustee Bob Sorensen and the rest of the Port Chester Board for considering using a certain Port Chester Bank.


Meanwhile, Carvin's Cowboys are trying to make big financial deals with the very same local institution.


It looks like the psychotic inmates are running Carvin's New Rye Town Institution,


But Don't Worry Doctor Janus "I Need Money" Richards Will Be The New Secretary That Will Record Every Twist And Turn Of The Slow Train Wreck Know As The Joe Carvin Administration.

11/23/07 - Port Chester Roundup May Soon Start To Publish Articles In Spanish Since Most Hispanics Consider Americana Latina To Be A Comic Book.


It Is A Joke That Richard "I Can't Even Order A Meal In Spanish" Abel Is The Publisher Of
Port Chester's Americana Latina.



It Is Also A Joke That Jananne "I Don't Speak Spanish At All" Abel Is The
Editor Of
Port Chester's Americana Latina.

It Is A Joke That The Sales Person For Americana Latina Can't Speak Spanish.
No One In The Westmore News / Americana Latina Office Speaks Spanish At All. The Hire Independent Contributors To Write Fluff Articles For The Hispanic Community.
If Someone Was To Come In To Talk About This Item....

Soy Andina
"La familia Silva lo invita cordialmente a Ud. y su familia a compartir de un reunion en honor a nuestra MAMA PURISIMA el dia sabado 8 de Diciembre en su domicilio: 99 South Water St."
The Abel's And Their English Speaking Staff Would Only Understand...
"Port Chester" And "Greenwich
The Abel's and their Comic Book know as Americana Latina are exploiting the Hispanic Community.
For example their is a very nice lady that goes and cleans Westmore News Founder Bernie "I Forgot To Pay Over 100 Property Tax Bills" Abel's House. Then the poor woman goes over to clean the offices of Richard And Jananne Abel's Americana Latina.
But does this poor woman get mandated social security payments or unemployment insurance from the greedy Abel's who hate to pay their fair share of taxes.
No!

They are exploiting this poor Hispanic woman, while selling their comic book ads to Hispanic businesses in Port Chester.
They Had Better Hope That No One Translates One Of These Web Pages....

Employment tax evasion schemes can take a variety of forms. Some of the more prevalent methods of evasion include paying employees in cash, filing false payroll tax returns or failing to file payroll tax returns.



If you have information about an individual or company you suspect is not complying with the tax law, report this activity.

Because The Poor Exploited Hispanic Woman Or Someone Else Just Might Turn The Abel's In For A Reward Of 10% Of The Unpaid Taxes.

Shame on any Anglo Or Hispanic Business That Would Buy An Ad From
The Comic Book Known As
Americana Latina
The Abel's Explotation And Tax Cheating Is Not Funny.
