Babby Bachus and Babby Barlow
There is a match made in the cradle.
If either one of them had a little political experience they would have got permission to use a public park for there big ceremony. If Barlow had been paying attention to what he has been voting on for the last year and a half he would have known you need to get permission from the council in a resolution in order to use public space.
                                                                                                                      May 28/15


This is not the first time for these two. In December of 2014 Barlow and the slumlords association got together with Backus and made the deal to run Barlow for mayor. I am told there were no fewer than three, secret, non Republican committee meetings, where subsequent plans were hatched without input from all the committee members. Backus and the slumlords are trying to sell you things like NEW, YOUNG, EXCITING, ENERGETIC but what you are getting is more of the same old same old with a newer face on it.

"Carnie Clown Barlow Announces Run for Mayor"
I see that "Carnie Clown Barlow" has come out from behind the his slumlord backers to announce that he will be running for mayor this year. "Carnie Clown", or known better as" Fry Boy" has one and a half years of experience on the council and held no leadership roll except serving as char of the Planning and Development Committee, a do nothing committee. His lifetime experience consists of living with his mother and frying dough at local carnival events, certainly not the business experience we would expect for a person running for mayor of our city.
He lists his accomplishment from his less that two years on the council as:

1 Tougher budgetary over sight...WOW...he has participated in one budget, yet failed to reduce the budget reliving the residents of the crushing 60% tax increase we received . He was involved in OKing the OFD taking over code enforcement thereby increase our cost for code inspections and opening up the door for increased overtime and comp payments for the OFD. Now he says he wants to take it away from the OFD, spoken like the true lying politician he is.
2 Stricter codes on dangerous animals....the codes have not changed, and the ones on the books are state and local codes that don't need to be changed. Some accomplishment!
3 Tax incentive for homeowners performing improvements... This is the same incentive the County Legislature passed this year. Sean Broadwell brought this to Barlow to present to the council because Barlow has no accomplishments. I you think this is not true, check with the county, it is the exact same resolution that the county passed. The least he could have done was to change the wording.
4 Alternate side of parking policy... the old policy of having your car off the road by midnight was fine, now Barlow wants to please his slumlord backers by allowing them to plug the streets with their tenants cars. His proposal will give you a great insight that he will be a mouth piece for the slumlords, and will be a champion for anything they want, if he should somehow be elected!
5 He says he wants to address the city's issues....Billy, you have had over a year to address those problems and I have yet to see anything positive from you as a councilor. The streets in your ward are atrocious, especially Mohawk Street which you have been advised many times to fix and have not done in a year and a half, you had to have 1st street South re-paved 3 times, and then did not fix the sink hole in front of Mentors and then this had to be done 2 times (this is budget over sight?), you have constantly voted on the wrong side of city issues since you were elected, and now you want to give them what they deserve, and that is just because it is an election year, and you want to run for mayor.
So, if you are going to lie about legislation you have proposed, and the facts show that your backer Broadwell brought it to you from the county resolution, lie about parking policy which only benefits the slumlords, and your lies about addressing issues when you have not done anything in your ward let alone the city, who the f$@k do you think is going to vote for you?
Before Mommy puts you in bed tonight, have her read that bed time story about how you can be mayor, and how all that experience being a "Carnie Clown" will benefit you as the new leader of the kingdom. Kid, the slumlords are pumping you full of BS, and as soon as you loose, you will never see them again, and if you should by some miracle win, they will use you for everything they can get, and then like a rudderless boat, set you afloat to watch you crash on the shore.

Think about this
Are any of the current aldermen qualified to run this city? Have any of the aldermen shown the best interest for the taxpayers of the city of Oswego,ny ? Have any of them even tried to cut taxes ( over spending and misuse of fire dept.) Lack of having a solid code enforcement office. After all, does it take four weeks to get a demolition permit from the fire dept. ? And, are these well trained “inspectors” checking on the proper amount of insulation in walls, attic. And are the windows able to function ( open ) in the event a person has to escape? Are the windows at least 2r ? Are the doors at least 3’-0’” x 6’-8” The aldermen are not doing there job, and one of them wants to run for mayor? Would we be lucky that he would have to give up his aldermen position to run for mayor. Cannot serve two masters! Do one or the other!

Re:Broadwell Scam
I suggest contacting Hampton Inn corporate headquarters to complain about the sign that THEY own.If there is NO deal then they'll take the sign down in a flash exposing any shenanigans by the Broadwells.Hampton Inn does NOT want negative pulicity. You may be surprised by their response.

Unless Gilligan has given them some kind of police powers they have no business stopping or inspecting personal watercraft or boats on or off the water. If you are approached by any of the heroes in this capacity you should politely tell them to go F**K THEMSELVES.


how many know?
How many of you over-taxed private-sector working Oswegonians realize that today (5/26/15) was assessment grievance day? I went in there and saw only 2 other people there trying to get their amounts reduced to realistic levels. It reminded me of the recent school board vote where not enough people got off their asses to get Fran Hoefer elected. How does a few hundred teachers out-vote thousands of citizens and instill blatant conflicts of interests onto the school board?! We’re getting screwed in this city and all people do is present their 90-degree stance and take it because they feel their vote doesn’t matter. Sickens me to see the submissive mindset of the people of this city. I would have thought when I walked into city hall today that there would have been a long line into the assessor’s office. Was I wrong! Next year, the whole city needs to flood that place and overwhelm them with grievances but I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting to see that.

What is more important
Man, am I glad the aldermen are worried about this meth. thing, It is getting out of control. The city does not need more river boats, it needs Haz Mat teams.

“People seldom do what they believe in. They do what is convenient, then repent.”
Bob Dylan
 


Broadwell Scam
There is a big hole on the corner of East 1st and Utica Street, at the entrance of our city, and it has a sig;, site of the new Hampton Inn. Now that site, which I believe still belongs to the city and Broadwell has never paid for it has had that sign there for at least 5 years. Last year Broadwell removed at least 50 truck loads of dirt which left a big ugly hole at that location, sold the dirt and has not paid the city for it.
The city has been scammed by the Broadwells for years, and maybe it is time that spineless council hold sthe Broadwells accountable. Put the dirt back, pay the city for the property, or fill the hole with the promised Hampton Inn.
The city has been conned by the Broadwells for too many years; mayor, trying doing your job for once, make them clean up that site and pay the city for the land.

how many fire dept. people does it take to order subs
This is another new low. I guess it takes eight fire people to order subs, drive a big fire truck, to place a order, that could be done over the phone,while they sit and wait for there order to come to them! Gas car vs. fire truck, and STICKING IT RIGHT IN THE FACE of taxpayers, the mayor and the aldermen. And for the aldermen, who want everything to run right thru them, because they say they are in control and are in charge? Power, ego,little men!
The fire dept. is screwing the taxpayers out of 3,000,000.00 a YEAR!

Unbelievable
So, Leighton Elementary was taken off a "focus list". According to the article, there was a celebration of sorts. Many administrators were praised, and things that led up to being on the focus list, was talked about as it was the right way? All this praise and thanks to the many that made the school be on this list. Why was their any praise? Their finally doing what they should have done all of the time...focus on the students! It seems odd to me, that so much congratulating and praise, is necessary, or even earned??? Everyone should have taken a breath of relief, (that they still have a job), and they should have reflected...with shame! Unbelievable!

Today's Quote  May 19/15

“You enter into a certain amount of madness when you marry a person with pets”
Nora Ephron


This city
So...I see and talked to the volunteers that were taking it upon themselves to clean up this city (East Park Area). They were picking up trash, sweeping, raking, sanding and painting handrails, and had their kids by their side helping out. Others asking them what they were doing, and they responded...helping our city because they don't want to live in filth. For the most part, they were showing that things have to be done, and all it takes is a little work, and a little time. They were getting a lot done in just a short time. Where is the DPW when it comes to this? I'll tell ya, riding in a truck doing nothing most of the day. These volunteers have proven, that on a Sunday, in a few hours, things can be accomplished! The Utica St. Bridge guardrail could use a painting. It would take approx. 4 hrs, but I bet it won't get done at all, and if it does, I'm guessing it would take days for the city to complete. It just goes to show, that the city and its cronies don't give a crap. A few people, for a few hours. Take a look at the park when you go by, they did a great job!!! Kudos! And, during this time, at 11AM, the gate to the tunnel was still not opened. Beautiful Sunday morning, many people afoot and on bikes, and they couldn't go through the tunnel to continue what could of been a pleasing moment! Wtf, this city.

High school drop out County Treasurer
It amazes me that our uneducated County Treasurer can convince the majority of the legislature, that he needs to hire a temporary part time person who will "shadow" an account clerk, because this clerk is indispensable. Beardsley's department is so poorly staffed with people like himself, specifically some girl named Robin who is now the chief accountant, got her degree on line and could not pass the accountant test, but is still employed by the county.
Every other department has to go before the Vacancy Review Board to fill a vacancy and many times these departments have to wait for a month before they can fill a clerks position. Meanwhile these departments have to operate short a person and then the new person has to be trained by the department's other clerks. What is so special about the Treasures office, other than they are filling the department with unqualified people that allows them to circumvent the Vacancy Review Board? What are the "Shadow's" qualifications? If he is so qualified, why would he have to be trained for over 6 months to fill the job?
What is even more disturbing, this person is going to be paid $36,000 as a temporary part time person, will fill the job when the other clerk retires, and will come into the position without taking the civil service test and will come in at midpoint of the salary range, when all other hires come in at the bottom of the pay scale.
This smells as fishy as when this Robin was hires without a CPA (even though there were several candidates with a CPA that applied but were never interviewed) and then failed the account clerk test.
I know in their simple minds that this person is indispensable, but in truth, St. Paul's Cemetery is full of indispensable people. The politics of the county, and the way the Chair of the Legislature and the County Administrator allow this travesty to occur is the very reason this county is in such deep trouble.
The people of Oswego County should be disgusted with the legislators that allowed this travesty to happen, and should be calling their legislators complaining, and also calling those legislators that voted against this resolution, trying to save the taxpayers from a $36,000 expense for a "shadow".

They were picking up trash, sweeping, raking, sanding and painting handrails, and had their kids by their side helping out. Others asking them what they were doing, and they responded...helping our city because they don't want to live in filth. For the most part, they were showing that things have to be done, and all it takes is a little work, and a little time. They were getting a lot done in just a short time. Where is the DPW when it comes to this? I'll tell ya, riding in a truck doing nothing most of the day. These volunteers have proven, that on a Sunday, in a few hours, things can be accomplished! The Utica St. Bridge guardrail could use a painting. It would take approx. 4 hrs, but I bet it won't get done at all, and if it does, I'm guessing it would take days for the city to complete. It just goes to show, that the city and its cronies don't give a crap. A few people, for a few hours. Take a look at the park when you go by, they did a great job!!! Kudos! And, during this time, at 11AM, the gate to the tunnel was still not opened. Beautiful Sunday morning, many people afoot and on bikes, and they couldn't go through the tunnel to continue what could of been a pleasing moment! Wtf, this city.

redistricting
Are you kidding me? You save taxpayers on elections? What do we do at election time, drop off our ballets at river edge bookstore? Did anybody really vote for this guy? And as far as the council goes, I would like to see smarter and looking out for the taxpayers, as they are suppose to do, and are not. They are coming up with this unimportant issue at this time . Worry about how to CUT TAXES (waste), have a code enforcement dept. get rentals under control( making them , look nicer, the ones that need it, paint, cut the grass, etc.) Get off this, if you fix it, we will raise your taxes real slow. Right now, we need people who THINK, not people to create unimportant issues at this time!

Oz Hooker
Coming home from work I saw two cop cars and a border patrol vehicle in front of the black hooker's place on Syracuse Ave. I wonder if it was a raid and she was arrested. This kind of activity does not encourage people to want to live here. The council and the mayor can ramble on forever about how they want to improve the city and make it a better place. This will never happen until this kind of low life is removed from our city.

“If you don't drive your business, you will be driven out of business.”
B. C. Forbes



taxpayers money
Great job on trying to look at size of wards and hold yourself and do what? Great job on showing how to show the city should do what? You work here ,you should live here! Once again, the taxes are paid by the property owner. Just because you live in the city, or work for the city, does not mean that you are going to spend your monies ( net cash ), and not talking about school, city, and county tax, because once again, it does not matter where you work, it is where you live! If you work in Syracuse, but live in the CITY OF OSWEGO, NEW YORK! You pay ( Now pay attention) city, water and sewer ,county, and Oswego school dist. Taxes! If you live in texas, but own property in the city of Oswego, ny ! You will pay city , county, water and sewer, school tax!
So, what difference, does it make where a city lives, the taxes get paid, unless you are the city of Oswego,ny and do not view a building, for example, the colemen building! What, we were suppose to pay what? Lets make sure taxpayers are paying there taxes on time before they ask anything from the city! Fix what is under ground before you want to change voting land and try to Cut Wasted Monies, so the taxpayers do not have to reach into there paychecks, retirement funds, or the young couple just starting out! Oh ,and by the way, why not ask the schoolboard members, If they would have a problem, after all, they are special, that if they would be ok to have there taxes doubled? Not us, just them!

Oswego School Budget Vote
I have noticed consistently over the years that the turn out for the school budget vote is VERY LOW. There are basically 2 groups of dedicated people that get out to vote. First there are those employed by the school system and their families, who vote "Yes". Secondly are the people who know how much waste there is in the school system and they vote "No". The vast majority of those registered to vote, never get out to vote. If each person who realizes how much waste there is in the school system would talk to some of their neighbors and friends and encourage them to get out and vote, I think it would send a message.

Where to live !
Boy am I glad that this important issue has been taken care of in a very speedy and important business! After all, why would be, or you should ask, why police and firemen, and san. And what , pray tell, are these people? Are you saying, that the office workers, lawyers,cleaning service,parking readers,accounts, etc. have to live inside the city? And why are the police and fire dept. excluded? Why not have the LANDLORDS, Live inside the city also! And why not have the landlords live in one of there two family, three or more houses! And ,if they own a housing or appt. complex, the should live in at least one of them!
You aldermen are a bunch of morons! How about stop doing those special meetings that you have in the morning, stop these boy scout meetings and the one ones that you also have with some of the schoolboard members, and take care care of real important issuses, like taxes, water supply issues, road break, and those darn food runs out at price chopper, you know, where the amb. Hides behind the building, on the west side of it! Boy, doesn’t everyone love a sneak? Where do you think they get there orders to park, since it is not in front of the building in plain sight? So ,they are listening, and they know that we do not like it and have had enough! Ambl. On west side of price chopper at 11:00 a.m. on this 5-13-15 P. S . If the city of Oswego, ny goes with a private ambl. Service, I will bet ,that they can park anywhere they want to, because they have nothing to hide! Please Vote and let these members of the school board Know how you feel about the terrible job they have done looking out for the taxpayers. Time for this super to go!

school board candidates
A brief summary of the three school board candidates:

Sereno (ex classroom teacher): Her quote: "Unions are the foundation of what our society is. It’s what makes us great"

DeCastro (ex classroom teacher): Needs three more years to figure a way to get his granddaughter a social worker job in the district.

Hoefer: His quote: "It’s more important to have a healthy community for our children than to have a rich school district. We have to keep in mind that our community and parents are more important than our teachers".

It's very clear which candidate is for the community and taxpayers.


Remember, you do not have to vote for two candidates. Those supporting Hoefer should only vote for him and only him.

                                                                                                                       May 13/15

 

The sad part here is that with two seats open and only three candidates one of those ex teachers, DeCastro or Sereno is guaranteed to be back on the board. Therefore it is important for voters to understand if they want Hoefer, they must not vote for anyone else. If they vote for Hoefer and and then one of the other two they just cancel out their vote for Hoefer.


breath of fresh air
Please, Mr. Gillen, step aside, have a nice retirement! Aldermen, please try to get out of first gear and do your best to worry about taxes, code enforcement, reducing the overstaff fire dept. And by the way, how does not having a mayor’s asst. save monies when you have three fire dept. pick up trucks, and one with a 7000.00 sno-blade on a 60,000.00 truck? That right there is a person’s gross pay right there! And the three boats, What is that cost? New sheriff going to be coming to town, suck it up boys! Better learn how to use those extra holes in your belt, because you are going to need them!
Schoolboard, your next!

Here are some truths about the Bridge Street Run.

It is not supported or sponsored by the college. They also do not discourage it.

I is not a few hundred students from Suny Oswego. It is a few thousand students, drunks, dopers, perverts, gangbangers, and drug dealers and they come from all over the north east.

Last year there were two deaths, which the authorities claim could not be connected directly to the Bridge Street Run. One person, not a student from the Long Island area brought some high-test heroin up to Oswego where he met up with friends who were participating in the Run. Two deaths are just the number we have been told. No one knows how many bought the drug here and died somewhere else on some other weekend.



1 SUNY Oswego student dead after heroin overdose; 2 others hospitalized
Oswego, N.Y. -- Three SUNY Oswego students overdosed on heroin Friday night, one fatally, according to Sgt. James DuFrane of the Oswego Police Department.
The student who died was found on campus, DuFrane said. Two other students were found after overdosing off-campus and hospitalized. Police believe the incidents are related.
DuFrane said that criminal charges are pending, but didn't elaborate. The death is being investigated by campus police and the overdoses are being investigated by city police, according to DuFrane.
No names have been released. The times and locations of the overdoses have also not been released.

"Nevertheless, recognizing the risks associated with the Bridge Street Run and upon request of Oswego City Police, we do put our college public safety resources at the service of the Oswego City Police. Our University Police officers, paid overtime by the college, were operating under the direction and control of the Oswego City Police from 3 p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Saturday to assist at no charge to the city."

1 SUNY Oswego student dead, 2 others hospitalized after suspected heroin overdoses
http://www.localsyr.com/story/d/story/1-suny-oswego-student-dead-

2-others-hospitalized-a/23366/pdxTORXx00Kt-kPcP4woKg




I remember reading Deborah Stanley’s denial denial letter back then especially the part about the dates and times during, which the College Cops were “operating under the direction and control of the Oswego City Police”. I also remember thinking what the hell was that about.

Well here is a chronology as best as I can recollect. I have meant to do a follow up on that cover up but just could not find the time and then could not find my notes. I am sure someone will correct me where I am wrong.

Somewhere around the weekend of April 26, 2014 John Doe, from Long Island or somewhere down there came to Oswego with his backpack bulging with Heroin. The object being to party with his friends and sell his wares at the BSR (Bridge Street Run).

That weekend a student, lets call him Stupid Student #1, scored some Heroin from this Long Island dealer/friend and promptly passed it on to his friend Stupid Student #2. It is unknown if there were any fees or surcharges, which would make him not only Stupid Student #1 but also Dealer #2.

While they attended a party at a Frat house on the Johnson Road just outside the city in the Town of Oswego, Stupid Student #2 shot up the Heroin and promptly croaked. As part of the cover up the college demanded that Stupid Student #1 move back onto campus.

Just a few days later was the BSR and Stupid Student #1 was at another party at another Frat house on west Bridge Street, which was operated in violation of the zoning ordinance, by Doug Waterbury, who is also the mentor of Oswego Councilman William Barlow.

At this party Stupid Student #1 and two others Stupid Student #2 and Stupid Student #3 all shot up some heroin from the same dealer. On this occasion Stupid Students #1&2 over dosed while #3 croaked or so it seemed. Realizing the possible consequences, an undisclosed number of Stupid Student/Frat boys loaded #3, the dead or near dead one into a car and brought him out to campus where they dumped him in a dorm room and called 911.

Meanwhile back at Councilor Barlow’s, mentors, frat house on Bridge Street, Stupid Students #1 & #2 were being attended to by EMS personnel.

The following day Campus Cops who already had the info on the Johnson Road death began to put two and two together. They went directly to stupid Student #1 and told him they knew he was involved in the two deaths and offered him immunity if he gave up the source of the Heroin because they just wanted to get this stuff off the street.

Pending a definitive autopsy report determining the time and place of death of Stupid student #3 the Oswego Cops were operating under the belief that #3 did die in the City Of Oswego and either arrested or planned to arrest Stupid Student #1 for is involvement. At this point or shortly Thereafter Stupid Student #1 flashed the get out of jail free card and the DA’s office was faced with the conundrum of whether or not the Campus Cops had the authority to offer immunity for a crime committed outside their jurisdiction. Stupid #1 was involved in the deaths of two people. I am sure we will never know just what transpired between the two enforcement agencies and the DAs office but now Deborah Stanley’s statements about the Campus Cops, operating under the control of the City Cops began to make sense.

That I am afraid is where the trail ends for now. Neither the City nor the College has done anything to stop or alter the Bridge Street Run. Stupid Students #1 & #2 recovered and are probably now teaching school or working on Wall Street. I have yet to find out if anyone was ever arrested for those two deaths. I am sure there was no Zoning Complaint regarding Waterbury’s house and certainly no “POINTS” registered against it. Councilor Barlow now enjoys the support of Waterbury and the slumlords association in his yet to be announced campaign for Mayor of Ozwego.

 

All is well that ends well!

Today's Quote  May 3/15

"Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do."

Benjamin Spock

 

 

Gang bangers from Syracuse faced off against Sons of Moses from Oswego State.

About 1:50 AM Sunday a group of large nosed whites faced off against some Gang bangers from Syracuse outside the notorious Sting Bar in Oswego. When Police showed up all took flight some of them into the back yards of local residences. With at least two people in handcuffs back at street side the liquid courage began to show as patrons of the Sting used the safety of the steel bars around the patio to launch random taunts and fowl language which was directed towards the police and those in handcuffs. After all had left several height handicapped tough guys with their distinctive Long Island brogue began strutting up and down the street re enacting and bragging about the recent events. One of them made a comment about what would happen if any of those "Migger"s ever came back here.

"Some people stay longer in an hour than others do in a month"
William Dean Howells

 


Questions
Regarding The Comptrollers Report, which should be answered buy State Comptroller, the District attorney, and the Mayor of Oswego

 

Joe Smegelsky Jr.

“The chief of the Minetto Volunteer Fire Company in Oswego County spent nearly $6,000 in public funds on personal purchases such as guns and motorcycle parts, according to an audit released today by State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. The audit revealed a total of $22,000 in misused funds, questionable spending and missing cash” http://www.osc.state.ny.us/press/releases/dec14/121914a.htm


Why were there no charges brought for Official Misconduct?

S 195.00 Official misconduct.
A public servant is guilty of official misconduct when, with intent to
obtain a benefit or deprive another person of a benefit:
1. He commits an act relating to his office but constituting an
unauthorized exercise of his official functions, knowing that such act
is unauthorized; or
2. He knowingly refrains from performing a duty which is imposed upon
him by law or is clearly inherent in the nature of his office.
Official misconduct is a class A misdemeanor.
http://ypdcrime.com/penal.law/article195.htm#p195.00



Exactly what kind of firearm was purchased, long gun or pistol?


If it was a pistol who’s permit was it placed on?

Did Smegelsky have a permit and if so has it been revoked?


I have been told some crimes involving firearms bring mandatory penalties. If the alleged felony “grand larceny in the third degree” were to be prosecuted would it then bring a mandatory penalty/sentence?

 


Did anyone investigate to see if this overpayment was deliberate and possibly part of a scheme to divert monies to the chief?

“Vendor Refund Check Diverted — While reviewing cash
disbursements we found that the Company’s Treasurer had
mistakenly overpaid a vendor in 2012. After interviewing Company
officials, including the Chief, we found that the vendor had issued a
check for $1,863 to the Company as a refund of this overpayment.
The Chief subsequently cashed this refund check and retained the
funds for personal use. Prior to the conclusion of our audit, the Chief
reimbursed the Company $1,863 for this refund check.”

http://osc.state.ny.us/localgov/audits/firedists/2014/minetto.pdf#search=%20Smegelsky


 

According to the Comptrollers Report, Smegelsky admitted he prepared invoices for a nonexistent company at the request of “other Company officials”.


WHY WERE NO CHARGES OF OFFICIAL MISCONDUCT BROUGHT , NOT ONLY AGAINST SMEGELSKY BUT ALSO THE “OTHER COMPANY OFFICIALS” WHO WERE PART OF THIS ATTEMPTED COVER UP?


“Four of the purchases were supported by
invoices with letterhead that indicated the Chief had a fire equipment
business,

 

9 The invoice letterhead showed “J.Smegelsky Fire Equip.”

 

but, when we interviewed the Chief, he stated that he did
not have a business that sold firefighting gear and related equipment
and that he only prepared invoices because he was asked to do so by

In an unprecedented public plea for leniency from the District Attorney, we have heard how Smegelsky cooperated and how his alleged loss of six weeks pay at the Oswego Fire Department somehow figures into his punishment. According to the Comptrollers Report “the Chief was unwilling to state where he obtained the other items he sold to the Company”

Someone please explain to me how this translates into cooperation and why was there no investigation into where these items came from?


“Other than stating that he had previously
owned a generator and two helmets which he sold to the Company,
9 The invoice letterhead showed “J.Smegelsky Fire Equip.”
the Chief was unwilling to state where he obtained the other items
he sold to the Company.”

OSWEGO’S LILLY WHITE RACISIST FIREDEPARTMENT


One week ago we celebrated Martin Luther King Day. I am sure members of the Ozwego Fire Department seized the opportunity to rack up some double overtime but that is about the only use they have for non-whites.

Since its inception in 1876 the Oswego Fire Department has been as white as the driven snow, with respect to the color of its members that is. In its 139 year history there has never been an Asian, Black or Hispanic member. If you think this somehow reflects the population then you better take off your blinders. Oswego’s elected officials and Personnel Department have long allowed department members to live as far away as Montour Falls, Watertown, and Groton. There is no way you can cast a net that far and say, that population is reflected by our department.


In the late 1980’s there was young Black man working for the local cable company who sometimes frequented the Fire House Tavern as did members of the OFD. The firefighters exam had been announced and he was asking some of the OFD members if they thought he had a chance of getting in. He received all kinds of encouragement while he was there but after he left I overheard two of the Heroes chuckling and say no way they were going to let him in the department. “We have Guinias and Polocks and that is as integrated as we are going to get.” I do not know if the man ever took the test but the fact is that department remains as segregated as the day it was formed. They are allowed to operate as their own little fiefdom picking and choosing their own white membership and no one has the balls to put a stop to it.

The next time our Senators and Congressmen come around for their photo ops with our Hero Department we should all point out to the national media how they are supporting a racist organization. Perhaps we should ask the NAACP how this has been overlooked by their organization for so long.

They learn to be thieves and liars in Ozwego then they go out into the towns and ply their trade.


 

City Of Oswego, NY Firefighter Arrested

 

Joseph Smegelsky, Jr. Was arrested after an investigation by the New York State Comptrollers Office and the New York State Police determined there was a "misappropriation of nearly $20,000 in department funds" at the Minetto, NY Volunteer Fire Dept. where he also served, as their Chief.

http://www.cnycentral.com/news/photos.aspx?id=1064608

 

 

Here is the gross pay this HERO collected as an Oswego City Fireman.

2011 - $59,803
2012 - $59,392
2013 - $62,616


According to some media reports he has a side business going like all the other Oswego Heroes. I suppose their union president Mr. Geracy will be coming out with a statement telling us these things would not happen if only the firemen were paid a living wage.


 I am sure that if any of this information is incorrect Joey will send in another post and let all us asswipes know about it.

 

 Meanwhile let's take up a collection and buy him some soap on a rope.

 

Watch and see what happens next. I bet Gilligan gives him a paid vacation.

 

 

Today's Quote, July 2/14

 

“Thieves respect property. They merely wish the property to become their property that they may more perfectly respect it.”
G. K. Chesterton

 



Oswego's finest screwing the taxpayers once again spotted at Dicks Sporting Goods in Great Northern Mall on 6/22/14.....didn't know they sold food there....or were they perhaps getting a new set up clubs at our expense??? Would still like to see the tab for the turning stone "conference" they went to....a whole weekend at the turning stone??? meals, rooms, drinks, etc???? The worst part is it will never change. No matter who is mayor they will always be controlled by the f.d. and no one will run against our current council members. Oswego has become homeowners to few (I stand corrected good homeowners) and is a city full of renters.
                                                                                                                    July 2/14


That was probably just Smegelsky picking up some guns. They should be checking the video at Dicks to see who was with him. That hero should be arrested too.
                                                                                                                    July 2/14

Minetto Chief
People like that are paranpiod about someone else stealing what they just stole so naturally he would need to get a gun to protect all his or should I say our stuff.

Ambulance Numbers

Yes, they are not as correct as they should be as I left off the 2 additional firemen that go out on Ambulance #2 and many of the other expenses that can be attributed to the ambulance service . In reality here is a $300,000 loss each year without he expense of a new ambulance. The point is, we will never make a profit on this service; have a fully qualified ambulance located in Oswego (Menter) that can handle all emergencies; could cut 15 men from the department with all their benefits and return $2,000,000 to the taxpayers; while cutting the long term obligation of retirement and the padding of such for years to come.
Unfortunately, the obtuse Mayor, Council, and most of all ,Fire Chief, have another agenda and it is not in the best interest of he taxpayers. McCrobie probably was, at one time, a good fireman, but as a chief and leader lacks in total credibility. The way overtime is handed out only shows that he is helping to bump up he retirement of the soon to retire firemen by thousands of taxpayers dollars. There is a belief that hey will all get their turn is the OT merry-go-round, but the fact is, the tier 6 firemen will never see that benefit. The new anti padding law passed and signed by he governor will not allow tier 6 employees to add any more than $15,000 to their retirement benefits, and they will now have to go for the last 5 years instead of 3. If I were a tier 6, I would tell the tier 5's to stick their $50.00 they pay for the OT and start taking their share of the OT, because it will all be ending when all the tier 5's retire.

Minetto Fire Chief
I asked a few weeks ago if anybody knew what was going on with Minetto's Fire Chief well here you go.
Stole $20,000 from the fire department. I'm going to guess he possibly stole more since he's being held with no bail. Coinsedently though he just bought a piece of property behind his own for $20,000. Don't believe me? Here's the property taxes. Coincident? You should take a drive by his property to check it out. Constantly cars & trucks are being 'stored' there and then disappear. Camper was there for a whole summer now that's gone. I even seen the Minetto's fire truck pull up to his vacant property hook on a utility trailer with all the fireman in it and take off. Now Minetto Fire Dept has plenty of property to store at their station. Why would they use his? I offend wondered why a property owner who only has 1/4 acre of grass need a 0 point turn lawn mower? Probably the fire departments.
