04/28/11 This Just In From The Port Chester Topix News Message Board......

There Is A Reason That Port Chester And Rye Brook Residents Want To Take A Copy Of The Westmore News Roll It Up And Smack Richard Abel Upside The Head.
Today's Westmore News Snooze Has Come Out With A Cute And Cheery Little Report About Bishop Nowotnik's Rye Town Hall Basement That Was Flooded With Two And A Half Feet Of Rain Water Over Multiple Days .....

The Westmore News Reported:

If you were planning to attend Tuesday night’s Rye Town Board meeting, don’t head over to the Town Office Building at 10 Pearl St. The 8 p.m. meeting has been moved to the Port Chester village courtroom at 350 North Main St.
If you have a meeting with a representative from the company that has done the latest reassessment of property in the town to discuss your new assessment, don’t plan on taking the elevator. It’s out of service. That’s also the reason Tuesday’s meeting has been moved—the town courtroom on the third floor isn’t handicapped accessible, at least for the time being.
The Article Continues.....
“The damage is fairly extensive and fairly costly,” said Bishop Nowotnik, confidential secretary to the Rye Town supervisor, Wednesday afternoon. “It’s too early to say how much that is costing.”
Westmore Snooze Quote Of The Day:
" I can’t guarantee we won’t have water there again.”
- —Bishop Nowotnik, confidential secretary to Rye Town supervisor Joseph Carvin
Well Maybe We Should Get Someone Else To Manage The Rye Town Office Building
And Maybe We Should Start Telling The Truth About The Abel's And The Westmore News, Before They Manipulate Another Rye Town Election.....
It looks like the Carvin Administration is benefiting from letting Bernard Abel off the hook for once again cheating on his property taxes. When the previous administration got a call from the State Of Florida alerting them that they were looking into the Westmore News founder's Florida property taxes, the Town of Rye learned that Bernard Abel was claiming to be both a full time resident of Rye Town and Florida. thus getting tax exemptions reserved senior citizens in Port Chester, Rye Brook and Rye Town...
The Port Chester Topix News Message Board Continues .....

Crazy Bernie and his wicked little son Richard argued that Bernie's First and Fourteenth Amendment rights were breaches by a lawsuit against him for unpaid property taxes after he wrote columns criticizing town officials.

The dim witted Judge denied the Town's judgment, finding that Bernie offered sufficient evidence for a jury to find in his favor.
So If you want to cheat your neighbors and school children and make them pay higher property taxes, start a newspaper and attack the local officials that are responsible for making you pay your fair share of taxes.
Bernie cried to the judge that he was the only he was sued sued by the town for property taxes during the period. Hey if another government body would have called a dropped a dime in a tax cheat, they would have been happy to take that good for nothing low life to court too.
The sad part is that Bernie Abel had a long history of not paying his taxes in Port Chester and Rye Town and was know for decades as Bernie "I forgot To Pay Over 100 Property Tax Bills" Abel and his son was know as Richard' My Daddy Gave Me This Newspaper After He Cheated School Children By Not Paying His Taxes" Abel
While Joseph Carvin was running for to be the new Rye Town Supervisor he was constantly seen at the Port Chester Diner and at the Westmore News offices make strategical campaign decisions and coordinating with Bernie "I Forgot To Pay Over 100 Property Tax Bills" Abel.
In an article published on August 22, 2003 in the Westmore News, Bernard "I Forgot To Pay Over 100 Prperty Tax Bills" Abel, wrote an article as part of his regularly featured column called "The Town Crier. The article was entitled "Borrelli on par with Marie Antoinette" (referring to Rye Town Councilman Mike Borrelli), was written by the tax cheating Abel during a heated local election in which he was seeking to chose the politicians who would control of the Rye Town Board.
Under a subheading, entitled "Who is the real Mann?", Abel, who was laughing all the way to the bank, wrote about Rye Town Attorney Monroe Yale Mann, as a "political hatchet Mann" and "one of the biggest powers behind the throne" in the Town of Rye government, because the Town Attorney had tried to collect Bernie's unpaid back taxes on behalf of the school children of Rye Town.
Abel wrote that "Mann pulls the strings" and questioned whether the Rye Town Attorney who had taken him to court for tax cheating was "leading the Town of Rye to destruction."
The Rye Town Attorney took Greedy Bernie Abel and Westmore News, Inc., to court argueing that the statements contained in the article were false and published with actual malice.
Bernie Abel and the Westmore News moved to dismiss the complaint, contending that the action was filed in bad faith to chill the exercise of protected free speech and that the suit was frivolous. Supreme Court denied the motion and the Appellate Division affirmed the Supreme Court Decision against the Wstmore News and that tax cheating Abel.
The Rye Town Attorney moved for summary judgment on the complaint.
The Westmore News Inc.opposed the motion and cross-moved for summary judgment asserting that the article contained only expressions of opinion by Greedy Abel
The Supreme Court denied both motions on the ground that there were disputed issues of fact, and did not address whether the article constituted protected opinion. The parties were directed to proceed to trial.
Now that the Judges were out of the way, Bernie "I Forgot To Pay My Property Taxes" Abel had to face a jury of his peers at a trial. When all the facts were laid out the the jury found that the statements in the article were defamatory and that defendant Westmore News had published the statements either with the knowledge that they were false or in reckless disregard of their truth or falsity. The jury awarded Mann $75,000 in compensatory damages against Westmore News and punitive damages against both Westmore News and Abel in the amount of $15,000 each.
The Greedy Tax Cheating Bernie Abel Hit the roof and ran back to court appealed, arguing that the statements were constitutionally protected opinion.
The Appellate Division upheld the jury's determination and said that Bernie Abel and the Westmore News Inc.had defamed the Rye Town Attorney, and concluded that the Rye Town Attorney was entitled to compensatory damages. The court dismissed the punitive damages awards and ordered a new trial unless The Rye Town Attorney stipulated to a reduction in the compensatory damage award, which he did, leaving in place only the defamation award against Westmore News Inc.
But Greedy Tax Cheating Bernie Abel and his wicked little thieving son Richard Abelwere not satisfied they then went back to the State Supreme Court and argued that even though the statements printed in the Westmore News were knowing false and defamatory they were protected speech, because tax cheating Bernie Abel's false and defamatory statements appeared on an "opinion" page.
In other words the Abel's and the Westmore News Inc. Basically Argued We can knowingly lie as long and not be held responsible if we do it on the opinion pages of the Westmore News.
The Dim Witted Judges Agreed With Bernie Abel who has made a career out of cheating school children out of sorely needed tax dollars.
But, Tax Cheating Bernie Abel Always Hated Paying Tax Dollar's For School Children He Even Tried To Stop The formation of the Blind Brook School District and the building Blind Brook High School, because he was afraid he might have to pay a few more buck for the children of Rye Brook. Greedy Bernie repeatedly slammed Blind Brook families saying their proposed high school was "Elitist".
Rye Town Supervisor Joesph Carvin let the tax cheating Bernie Abel off the hook for his knowingly false and defamatory articles in support of the Carvin campaign.
In fact, Good Ole Joe Carvin was so happy with the Westmore News articles that had been repeatedly found to be knowingly false and defamatory, he gave the newspaper a massive cash payout of tax dollars from the property owners of Port Chester, Rye Brook And Rye Neck,
Of coarse, The Greedy Abel Clan Had No Shame, They Threw A “Free Speech Party” And Invited The Carvin Administration, as well as, clueless Westmore News subscribers and some relatives looking for a few crumbs from the Joe Carvin Windfall.....
I Wonder Who Westmore News Editor Jananne Abel Will Be Endorsing In The Upcoming Rye Town Supervisor's Election In About Six Months?

But What Do You Expect From A Newspaper That Was Founded To Attack Port Chester Officials Who Were Trying To Get Infamous Port Chester Slumlord Bernie Abel To Pay Building Violation Fines And Over 100 Property Tax Bills?

Who can forget how Bernie's apartment buildings mysteriously burned to the ground on Willow Street just before the Town Of Rye and the Village of Port Chester took them over.
Later it was learned that one of Bernie's real estate corporations sold an another apartment building to his wife for $100 and the Town of Rye and the Village of Port Chester soon discovered that they a corporate shell with no assets owed them scores of property tax bills.

Rye Town Roundup has always been proponent of free speech, America is built on the idea that there is a natural conflict between government and the press. That conflict benefits the people. But when an unethical rouge newspaper publisher like Richard Abel snuggles up in bed with a politician like Joe Carvin, then it's the taxpayers that get screwed.

The next thing you know Bernie Abel once again gets a way with cheating on his taxes and Joe Carvin gives hime a massive payment funded by the taxpayers of Port Chester, Rye Brook and Rye Neck.

And Guess Who Get's Hurt

1). Honest Hardworking Families And Seniors Who Can Barely Pay Their Taxes

2). School Children Who Depend On About Half Of The Taxes That The Westmore News Founder "Forgot" To Pay.

Richard And Jananne Should Do The Right Ting And Pay Back The Massive Payment That Rye Town Tax Payers Paid Bernie Abel And The Westmore News Inc.

The Should Also Start Paying Off Those 100 Tax Bills That Bernie Skipped Out On.

God Knows The Schools In Port Chester, Rye Brook And Rye Neck Could Use The Cash.

A Newspaper Is Supposed To Be Funded By Advertising Not By Hustling Honest Hard Working Taxpayers and by making sweetheart deals with ambidextrous politicians.

You didn't see Joe Carvin And The Rye Town Republican Patronage Machine Strategizing And Coordinating With The Owner, Publisher And Editor Of The Journal News Repeatedly At The Port Chester Diner During The Last Rye Town Election.

You Just Can't Trust Richard "My Daddy Gave Me This Newspaper After He Forgot To Pay Over One Hundred Tax Bills" Abel And The Westmore News To Tell You What Is Really Going On In Port Chester, Rye Brook, Rye Neck And Rye Town.

Forget About The Fake Fraudulent And Phony Abels At The Westmore News.

Don't Worry Rye Town Roundup Is Like The Hunter Thompson Of Hyper Local News Reporting And Will Continue To Expose The Fraud, Waste And Abuse In The Town Of Rye.

Rye Town Roundup Will Help Keep The Carvin Administration Honest, Because Richard Abel Is Too Busy Kissing Joe Carvin's White Boney Ass And Can't Be Bothered With Reporting The Facts About Rye The Town Of Rye.

Bishop Nowotnik, Had Better Straighten Up And Fly Right, Because Rye Town Roundup Is Watching To See If He Properly Takes Care Of Crawford Park, Rye Town Park And Rye Town Hall.

"If I'd written all the truth I knew for the past ten years, about 600 people - including me - would be rotting in prison cells from Rio to Seattle today. Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism."
-Hunter Thompson
