Joe If you think you did what was best for the Rye community, why did you play follow the leader with Otis, French and now Cohen. You have all failed to protect the health, safety and welfare of the Rye community by ignoring the pollution, health and environmental concerns on Hen Island. Talk about politics behind closed doors! You have all done what you thought was best for your political careers and not the residents of Rye. No other community in N.Y. state would have allowed what you, Otis, French and now Cohen have closed your eyes to. You should all be ashamed of yourselves! Followers not leaders! Sad very sad. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=p7d8rc-euHk
The Rye City Council is not afraid of a few little Bugs. Why should the Rye City Council protect the health and safety of the citizens of Rye? Maybe Dr. Matt can discuss this video during the wine and cheese reception. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VT2FHXxz8xg
There is a lot of Sh*t being slung here about Playland. I am confident the County will straighten out the health code violations if they are real before they open this month. Now if we can only get them and the City of Rye to address the real sh*t polluting our waterways from Hen Island. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7d8rc-euHk

Two more questions for the Rye Sustainability Committee? What city supports the pollution of its harbors by failing to enforce current sewage treatment regulations? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7d8rc-euHk What city supports the breeding of millions of mosquitoes by allowing the storage of thousands of gallons of water in bird feces infected water tanks used for domestic household water? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VT2FHXxz8xg
Here you can view all the wonderful pictures of sewage entering the shores of Milton Harbor from the next door neighbors @ Hen Island. The current Rye City Council still allows these conditions to exist to this day. http://healtheharbor.com/gallery-1/
11 years and counting and the entire Cohen administration still allows Hen Island to pollute our waters and threaten the health and safety of our residents. http://ryeny.swagit.com/play/07112018-1099

A Stain On Rye That Could Last Forever On veteran's Day 2017 let us not forget WWII veteran Robert W. Schubert and the way he was acutely mistreated in the last years of his life by two successive Rye City administrations. Robert William Schubert was a long-time resident of Rye, NY. He was 88 when he passed away at his home. He was a World War II veteran naval commander. During World War II, Bob Schubert was assigned to the LSM-441 of the Pacific Theater. He captained the first non-Red Cross ship into Nagasaki, Japan, after the detonation of the second atomic bomb. He remained in the US Navy for 20 years, retiring as a Commander. Later, he continued his dedicated service as the Commander of the American Legion Post 128. After active duty, Mr. Schubert worked at Columbia University's Nevis Laboratories as a Chief Engineer on the Synchrocyclotron project for the Navy. He joined Watson Laboratories and worked as Chief Mechanical Engineer on the Naval Ordnance Research Computer (NORC), the fastest computer in existence in 1954. Mr. Schubert had several overseas assignments for IBM including Director of Defense and Complex Contracts in Paris, France, and Director of the Maritime Systems Center in Brussels, Belgium, and in Milan, Italy. Although Mr. Schubert was always involved and very well known in Rye he walked into the main political spotlight after the water dried up in his pond as a result of an un-permitted construction project on the upstream neighboring property. This excavation project – begun as a simple secret attempt to save money by working illegally while the city naturalist was on vacation - was allowed to proceed un-remediated due to compromised city hall officials and their undisclosed conflicts of interest with paid influence peddlers serving select members of the political class of Rye. After City Hall refused to enforce its wetlands codes (in an effort to selectively save a Rye political donor $100,000 dollars or more in permitting, environmental consulting and construction fees) Bob Schubert set out determined to require the City to do what it had purposely failed to do from the start - enforce its Wetland and Watercourse Code Chapter 195 and restore the historic wetlands on his Forest Avenue property. In February of 2009 in an effort to avoid municipal embarrassment and an attempt to silence Bob Schubert, Senior Rye City administrators attempted to have Bob committed to the psychiatric unit of the Westchester County Medical Center. But the City's attempt failed badly and baldly – resulting in the firing of the then city manager – and failing to deter or silence Bob Schubert. The second round of attempts to silence Bob Schubert began on March 18, 2011 when now proven serial public liar Ex-City Manager Scott Pickup claimed that Bob had threatened his life and the life of then Councilwoman Catherine Parker. At the time Bob was 88 years old, required oxygen tanks to breath and weighted in at every bit of 100 lbs. The third and final attempt to silence Bob Schubert occurred after Bob later again entered City Hall to view a public wetlands map located on the wall. Bob was then again charged by police and prosecuted after yet another malicious false complaint lodged by City Manager Pickup. The two Rye City Administrations responsible for these abominations should bow their heads in shame forevermore and honest American's should never forget nor hesitate to speak out about the way this distinguished Rye citizen was abused in the last years of his life by corrupt officials and others for money. If you'd like, please watch the short video below as Robert W. Schubert was honored in front of a city council, who refused to even acknowledge his passing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BESKIYUU6I
It's the same old smoke screen that they have been running for the past few years. They have been polluting Milton Harbor for years and now they try to convince the public that they are environmentally friendly. Picking up debris along the shoreline and dumping Sh*t in our harbors and our Mayor and City Council sit by and watch it happen for years. Shame on you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7d8rc-euHk

That is wonderful news. Now can we get some of them to help with the sewage issues the Rye City Council has been ignoring on Hen Island. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7d8rc-euHk
Comforting to know that Rye's Hen Island is not the only location where City officials cover up the real story. The City council's improper handling and cover-up of both Hen Island and Rye Golf are criminal actions that threaten the health and safety of every Rye resident. The entire City Council should all be held accountable and charged. This has been going on in Rye for years and the longer it is tolerated the harder it is to control. Let's not forget how they treated Bob Schubert in an effort to cover-up the City's wrongdoings in relations to the Gates property. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BllMY7KtS0Y

That's a great start. Hopefully they will address the pollution and mosquito issues that have been plaguing and threatening our Sound Shore communities for years as depicted in the below linked story from 2008. http://www.myrye.com/my_weblog/2008/07/long-island-sou.html Please stay tuned for the upcoming movie titled "Hen Island the Movie" where Robert F. Kennedy Jr. from Riverkeeper and Terry Backer from the Long Island Soundkeeper expose the long allowed cover-up on Hen Island. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9glVGIkHaw
What laws? Welcome to the world of Robert W Schubert and Hen Island. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LV1I1MSIfUk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7d8rc-euHk
With the upcoming Memorial Day of remembrance, please take the time to reflect on the way in which WWII Hero Robert W. Schubert was treated for years by the Mayor and City Council members in the municipality of which he lived. Follow Bob's story below as it intertwines in the upcoming documentary film Hen Island: While Ray Tartaglione was publicly confronting the Rye City Council over neglected environmental enforcement issues on Hen Island, former World War II hero and longtime well respected Rye resident Bob Schubert appeared before the Council numerous times with a similar request. As a result of an UN-permitted construction project on an upstream neighboring property, Bob’s pond dried up and his award winning wetlands garden was destroyed. City Hall refused to enforce its wetlands codes (in an effort to selectively save a Rye political donor $100,000 dollars or more in permitting, environmental consulting and construction fees) As Rye residents appeared in droves at City Council meetings supporting Bob’s efforts and protesting the City’s treatment of the senior citizen, the City responded by trying to silence Bob in order to avoid municipal embarrassment. The City called the psychiatric unit of the Westchester County Medical Center in an attempt to have Bob evaluated and committed. When that failed, former City Manager Scott Pickup claimed that Bob had threatened his life and the life of then-Councilwoman now-County Legislator Catherine Parker. The third and final attempt to silence Bob Schubert occurred in the final months of his life after he entered City Hall to view a public wetlands map located on the wall. Bob was charged by police and prosecuted. Bob Schubert’s story is interwoven into the tale of Hen Island with “dirty pool politics”, municipal corruption, and political agendas competing against the extraordinary power of ordinary people who fight for what they believe in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=UUVL7Q9QFs1lThhw9-1_cCXw&v=BllMY7KtS0Y
Catherine Parker is featured in the cast list and the movie for the upcoming documentary on Hen Island. Environmentalist or politician you decide. http://www.henislandthemovie.com/cast/
"($1,000) from a Rye donor and seasonal resident of our “magical” Hen Island" Small dollars to pay the Sack administration to continue the failure to enforce health and safety codes. $1,000.00 donation and you get to save yourself and your neighbors millions in code compliance costs. No wonder Sack copies Steven Cadenhead on all city correspondence about Hen Island. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9glVGIkHaw
"We have found that it is better to be personally effective, than to take uncompromising stands or to engage in political posturing, which serves no beneficial purpose." If this is true then maybe Mayor sack can explain why he as well as the past administrations have ignored the constant health threats on Hen Island. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4x68VSycQhY "We must always be ready for change, and we must inevitably embrace change." Really?

I thought you may also be interested in this picture of a full urine container left all winter along the shores of Hen Island. (you can see it just to the left of the chair on Hen Island in the first picture) This is Mayor French's fix of the sewage problems on Hen Island. (composting toilets) Surprisingly enough it didn't float into the harbor during the winter. But the second picture is when it was transported to the shoreline at American Yacht Club to be deposited in the Rye City garbage truck just a few weeks ago. (you can see it just to the right of the chair at AYC) We are now subjection our shore club staff and DPW workers to handling human waste. http://www.flickr.com/photos/85899714@N06/8401095826/in/photostream/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/85899714@N06/8739260156/
Mayor French, As the lawn was being cut this weekend on the north end of Hen Island, there were three separate bird carcasses discovered. As you may know, dead birds are a strong indicator of the presents of West Nile Virus especially if they are located in close proximity of each other. We can have the birds tested but with last year's confirmation of four local cases of West Nile and the positive Hen Island test results, I think it is safe to assume the dead birds are an early indicator of what we have to look forward to in Rye this summer. Please keep in mind that typically West Nile Virus and it's indicators do not usually appear until late July or early August. Most at risk are residents that spend a great deal of time outdoors at the clubs on Milton Point and in Greenhaven, that would include young children and the elderly. All of the aforementioned live, work and play within a very close proximity to the mosquito breeding grounds that you allow to continue on Hen Island. This issue should have been addressed years ago. I am hoping you will not be adding the title "The Mosquito Breeding Mayor" to your long list of failures during your administration. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FojgSQne9q8
