Bart Didden: Why Can't Port Chester Taxpayers Pay More Money In Rye? (portchesterroundup.blogspot)

Extremist TEA Party Lunatic Bart "The Bigot" Didden Is Once Again Back To Being An Out Of Touch And Confused Board Member
Port Chester's Board Of Trustee's Meeting Once Again Features Bart Didden's Uninformed Lunacy. The Port Chester Board of Trustee's were asked to approve the purchase of a Ford Expedition, to be used by the DPW's acting general foreman, when Bart Didden interrupted.
Trustee Bart Didden questioned Village Manager Christopher Russo on why the village was purchasing the 2011 Expedition XL SSV from a East Hanover, NJ, company instead of from nearby Rye Ford / Subaru dealer that is a friend of his.
Russo told Didden that the New Jersey company, Warnock Fleet, currently has a contract with New York State. Since the company deals exclusively with municipalities, it's able to offer vehicles at a lower cost and thus save Port Chester taxpayers money.
The Expedition will cost the village $26,620.85. It will be used to transport personnel and goods, and will be outfitted with a plow during the winter months.
Didden voted against the resolution to approve the purchase, apparently he wants Port Chester taxpayers to pay more for needed vehicles.
Mayor Dennis Pilla and trustees Sam Terenzi, John Branca, Daniel Brakewood and Luis Marino all voted in favor of the purchase that will save Port Chester taxpayer money.

Port Chester High School Girls Targeted On "Smut" List - Watch The Video (portchesterroundup.blogspot)
A controversial so-called "smut list" targeting scores of female students in area schools has been circulated by students in Port Chester High School.
It is part of a recent phenomenon among college students and teens of publicly naming girls claimed to be promiscuous -- via mobile phones and the social networking website Facebook. The list posted on Facebook contained the names of 99 students from area towns.
One version of the list names 24 girls identified as Port Chester residents.
Students from nearby Rye, Rye Brook and Greenwich are also on the list. It was unclear where the list originated. Students say that they are sure there will be many more lists in the future that will include more groups.
This practice apparently started a few months ago in colleges and has filtered down to area high schools.
One Port Chester High School student said some of the girls he knows, who were included on the various lists that have circulated, seem to be laughing it off, even though most kids know cyber-bullying is a serious issue.
The Smut List has disrupted the educational process in Greenwich where it touched off a dispute that led to a police response at Greenwich High School.
A fight occurred when a 17-year-old boy walked over to a male and female who were talking and punched the male student in the face.
The two students were pulled apart by school security.
The 17-year-old Greenwich student who threw the punch was charged with disorderly conduct and released on a promise to appear.
His name was not released due to his age.
Greenwich was the only Connecticut town included on the list.
Port Chester education officials seem to be unaware and unprepared of how to deal with the smut list circulating in the middle school and high school.
Calls for comment from Port Chester educaion officials were not immediately returned. Here is some more information in this video.
