    Brook Packard,

    My sentiments 10 FOLD!!!

    Have you read the letters he released to all the parents & the media, is he for real with this stuff!!!

    Brook Packard

    Another moment in courage for Ed Shine: condemning the brutality after the fact but washing his hands of any responsibility.


    Sorry Average Citizen, here’s a few link’s –,0,5134532.story?track=rss


    If I was a RHS parent I’d start looking back in the recent past about the Rye Police Department’s apparent reduction of John Wood’s involvement at Rye High. Youth Advocacy was I believe started when I attended RHS in the 1970’s. It was in response to incidents (rather than phony recurring “traditions”) exactly like this with hospitalizations that brought resources to problem prevention.

    If Officer Wood has had his RHS interactions curtailed then shame on those who created justification for it. And shame on those teachers and administrators who looked away or pretended not to hear that this wasn’t incidental - but recurrent seasonal felony assault, wholly predictable. Now cue the lawyers, and Dr. Shine’s more vehement denials.

    Bob Zahm (if you’re with us) – can you tell us what was the board TOLD about this stuff before this year’s “ritual?” Or what did the board KNOW about this practice, as citizen representatives of the community? Surely other parents complained in prior years? It’s been fully 72+ hours of local media silence on this story except everyone knew everything thru the grapevine apparently by Saturday night or Sunday morning.

    BTW, the story has just gone national.

    Average Citizen

    Only Tedc could link French to this.

    Good job Ted. At least you didn't include any links or poems!


    Media Watchers - We Have a Winner!

    Jay Sears and is THE first local publication to cover this story from – wait for it – 3 FULL DAYS AGO.

    I’ve just scanned all the competition and while Lohud is NOW finally on the story, nobody local but Jay has moved a millimeter column inch on the subject here until now.

    But that hasn’t prevented regional video news for one moment – and they have lapped the field several times over with Channel 12 first and deep on the story.

    But if you’re reading this on Monday night before the Channel 5 10 PM news broadcast then be sure to tune in. Sources report there was much taping here today and it should be quite a story.

    Also would someone please tell Deputy Mayor Peter Jovanovich that a real INVESTIGATION is actually underway in the City of Rye RIGHT NOW? He’s been stonewalling several of them now for years, but somehow this particular INVESTIGATION got underway apparently without his permission – or for that matter Mr. French’s permission.
