This protest and especially the fourth picture is so distressing and embarrassing just like Hen Island that has been going on for so long. If you have ever worked in the hospitality industry you know how hard they work for their money. It's like the Doug French administration all over again. Same song different singers. Taxpayers flipping the bill for political mistakes.I also thought Joe would fix it but he is just another politician who gives into political pressures and now the entire city is talking about him. Yandrasevich should of had a few cellmates that condoned and enabled his behavior. Pay these people already. It should never of gotten this far. Why can't we get it right in Rye? I must take some of the blame, I voted for him to.
@ Dim Wit, It started out with them questioning me about the BS story that they were told by Pickup, French and a few others but no worries by the end, I did set the record straight. You don’t see me or Fox in handcuff do you? Trust me; it was another witch hunt, just like sending the Westchester County Psychiatric Team to evaluate Schubert. Only difference is now they are using the DA’s office. I thought the investigators seemed a little pissed after I told them the Schubert story and about how they used the Psychiatric unit to try and get rid of Bob. My guess is they realized they were also being used. (God don’t like ugly) I must tell you, I think they have some balls to put a twenty something year dedicated employee through what they did, just because they thought he was a friend of mine or he was helping me. But after seeing what they did to 89 year old WWII veteran Bob Schubert before he died, nothing surprises me. A vote for Jovanovich and this will continue in Rye! Interesting how Jovanovich’s newspaper, the Rye Record is the only newspaper that I know of that prints rumors and wrong ones at that. http://www.ryerecord.com/news/that-sinking-feeling.html My guess is if you label it a rumor you don’t have to worry about libel suits.
I spent some time yesterday with the Westchester County District Attorney investigators inquiring about the Rye Marina witch hunt. That would be the same investigation initiated by Scott Pickup and Doug French. (Same DA investigators working on the Rye Golf Club investigation) After about an hour and a half it seemed clear to me that the investigators appeared to be more concerned in Mr. Pickup's actions than Mr. Fox's. I believe, by the time we were finished, I had pointed out how and why Mr. Pickup and Mayor French created this witch hunt to draw attention from the Golf Club scandal and punish Peter Fox after they believed was helping and befriending Ray Tartaglione. Now the investigation is moving in the right direction.

To me this appears to be another attempt to distract residents from the Rye Golf Club scandal. Lets rile up the residents and pack the city council meetings with another issue because the Boat Basin investigation didn't do the trick. The sooner Doug French leaves his position as Mayor the better off we will be. Doug French's legacy below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KHQIHMTaAA

We should not forget that nineteen Arizona firefighters recently died when an out-of-control fire overran them. That same situation could happen anytime in any one of our communities here at home. It’s interesting to me to see how these men are willing to risk their lives to protect their community and at the same time Scott Pickup tried to suppress their concerns that were being told to the same public that they protect on a daily basis. Mr. Pickup told the City Council and the public “the Fire Department meeting was not taped”. Thus, the beginning of the Dapolite cover-up. http://www.lausdeo10580.com/lausdeo10580/2012/04/city-of-rye-finds-9000-to-make-whistle-blower-vanish.html The City Council should be ashamed of their follow-up actions. But more so, I believe the entire community should be ashamed of what we let the City Council and the City Manager get away with. It’s a smack in the face to our firefighters, to our community and to the Dapolite family. Rather than admit a mistake and face the music, the Mayor and the City manager with the help of many others, tried to ruin the career and reputation of a 20 something year old, born and raised Rye resident. Andrew was only guilty of refusing to lie to the people, in the community that he grew up in. This is another blazing example of how this city is being run under the French administration. We should all bow our heads in shame. It is just disgraceful.

Catherine Parker has failed to protect the health and safety of the public for years. Here is a video of what Catherine Parker, Doug French and Scott Pickup has approved on Hen Island. "Composting toilets, the right choice for Rye and Milton Harbor". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6K3Yz8WnI5E
Rye's Failure to Protect http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqDvca5UwcY&feature=c4-overview&list=UUSKIv_k38Xqk1FmYNjQDnzA
I said it on Lo-Hud and I will repeat it here. If you watch this video you will see how Ms. Parker speaks from both sides of her mouth. It has been her failure to take a position and make a decision on many important issues. She has failed to protect the health and safety of the residents of Rye for years. Actions speak louder than words! Parker on a County level is a big mistake. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqDvca5UwcY
Former Congressman Richard Ottinger better reevaluate who he is endorsing. Take a peak at what Parker has allowed for years in her own backyard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=qYLJZTjc8s4
Sorry Pal, It's not my house it's the one next door...And they are still using the same sewage pit for their urine,etc... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FH2O_m9kYFY
It’s all about public awareness: Dear Greenhaven homeowners, I am writing to you today concerning the horrific mosquito infestation present in Greenhaven. I am sure most of you that live in Greenhaven have noticed the increase in numbers year after year. In an effort to eliminate the infestation and draw attention to Hen Island (and the City and County Health Department’s lack of concern for the health and safety of area residents) last week we made a presentation in front of the Rye City Council. This presentation included Mrs. Kimberly King and Mr. Jeffrey O’Neil. Ms. King unfortunately lost her 5 year old daughter Adreana to EEE, a well known mosquito borne illness. Since her daughter’s death, Ms. King has been involved on a national level with mosquito control, education and awareness. She is presently a County Mosquito Control public health commissioner in Massachusetts and she is a member of several National Vector Borne Disease Control organizations. Mr. O’Neil is a nationally recognized entomologist and a toxicologist who has been involved in laboratory and field research in mosquito control for over twenty five years. Their presentation was informative and disturbing and I would encourage everyone to view it with the hope of educating our community on the dangers of mosquitoes and mosquito borne viruses. http://ryeny.swagit.com/play/07102013-576/#18 I would also encourage everyone to view our latest video “A Failure to Protect.” It was produced in the effort to illuminate how the Rye City Council, under the direction of Mayor Douglas French, has placed the lives of our families in jeopardy and allowed the City and the County Health Department to mislead the residents of Rye and Greenhaven into believing that there is “no threat to public health” from the swarms of island breeding mosquitoes on Hen Island. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqDvca5UwcY
Home-made bombs on Hen Island… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FH2O_m9kYFY
Sent to all Hen Island owners this evening. Dear Fellow Cottage Owners, I am writing to you today concerning the horrific mosquito infestation present now on Hen Island. I am sure most of you that frequent the Island have noticed the increase in numbers year after year on the Island. In an effort to eliminate the infestation and draw attention to the Island (and the City and County Health Department’s lack of concern for the health and safety of area residents) last week we made a presentation in front of the Rye City Council.

Please feel free to respond to the Mayor and the City council both pro and con. It is important that they are aware of your views.

"using rain barrels for their gray water" How about using rain barrels for their domestic water. Gray water does not include water used for washing dishes, showering, etc.. Below is the last city council meeting where a number of professionals spoke about the stored water on Hen Island and how it is threatening the lives of Rye residents and children. Try watching it, you might get an education. http://ryeny.swagit.com/play/07102013-576/#18
