MARSD’s New Mission

MARSD’s current mission and vision statements have always been a bone of contention for me. Thankfully, with a new board we have a new mission. Under Dr. Gambino’s direction, the Mission and Vision Committee has drafted new mission and vision statements that are virtually guaranteed passage at the next board meeting. The primary difference between the new and old? Accountability.

The current mission statement is –
To provide every child with the highest quality of instruction, curricula, and services; to treat every child with respect and dignity; to give every child the opportunity to learn and mature, to acquire a thirst for knowledge, to experience the satisfaction of accomplishment, and to anticipate becoming a productive member of a democratic society.

Look at the key action verses – “To provide every child . . . to treat every child . . . to give every child . . .” The mission statement has absolutely no connection to student outcomes. How often have we heard administrators bemoan the socio-economic backgrounds of our students? How often have we heard the staff blame the parents, the students, the community, everybody but themselves?

No more.

The new mission statement will be –
We are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment where educators inspire, empower, and encourage students to excel.

If our students fail to excel, the fault is not only theirs and their parents’; the fault is ours.

The vision statement is a reflection of what we hope to achieve.

The current vision statement –
Upon leaving the Matawan Aberdeen Regional School District, all children will credit us with having given them what they need educationally to help them succeed in life in the pursuit of their own goals.

The new vision statement –
Students will become life-long learners, critical thinkers, and creative problem solvers who achieve success as honorable members of society.

Once again, the difference is accountability. The key phrase in the old vision is “children will credit us”. The key phrase in the new vision is “students will become”.

If our students don’t excel, we have failed. If they don’t become life-long learners, we have failed. If they don’t become critical thinkers and creative problem solvers, if they don’t achieve success, if they don’t live honorable lives, we have failed.

All we need now is God’s grace and a community that holds us accountable.

That is a word seldom used in federal, state, municipal or school workplaces. It will be refreshing if it is actually implemented.

I think it's fair to say that all of our district's problems are solved. Our children are saved now that the BOE has constructed new mission and vision statements that merely paraphrase their old ones.

Joey, are you seriously touting this as a bona fide accomplshment?... Seemingly excited with: "Look at the key action verses [sic - clauses]" What?!?

Look at my goddamn school taxes. I wish you BOE idiots would use some action verses or clauses in your budget instead of hosing me every April...

Well said. This is all mutual masturbation by a bunch of psuedo intellectual elitists. The board was interested in community involvement in this circle jerk but does not want to include the community on what effects people the most, taxes and the contract. It is sad to hear the board "maybe" cares what the public thinks in regards to the people they represent in contract talks yets puts this charade on for something totally useless. It will take community support to enact any change and this won't change one thing. What an accomplishment, and the community was part of the process. How about this as a mission statement- Lower our taxes, assholes.

NJEA Ha ! said...

Grow up you anonymous teachers and administrators who who posted here before me. You all know in your heart of hearts that the educational system is now and has been for far too long is SHATTERED.

You all need to look to your powerful NJEA union the same union that you pay out of every paycheck the same union that many of you seek to deny allows the obvious incompetence and entrenched of your coworkers and peers who just put in their time. Your unions do merely exert their power supposedly on your behalf while spending untold millions of your union dues.

The few posts before me do seek to embarrass any opinion counter to the NJEA line of bullshit that they feed you like pablum. What do you seek from your union leadership that spent millions of your union dollars on the Corzine loss. Money well spent?

The vast amounts of monies thrown away by administrators and political hacks within school systems does little to educate the children you are supposed to instruct. However your union does not care about learning and that is for too long very obvious. Don't even get me started on the Billions wasted on the Abbot Districts and those idiots who caused that debacle by legislating from the bench.

Those of you who deny these truths and those same people who are merely placating the political crooks in Trenton who are unfortunately so beholding to your too powerful unions. Trentons fear and failures to stand up against the NJEA is a treasure trove of abuse where children and their learning is second to your unions greed and lust for control and power. All of your leadership should be shown the door along with your archaic tenure that keeps many idiots amongst you. Idiots who stay in positions that many of you know within yourselves does merely protect the ignorant and tired in your ranks. Many amongst you are a embarrassing disservice to your fine profession. They too need to be shown the door but they have TENURE so they stay on and on and on.

The times they are changing and Chris Christie winning the election does not bode well for your leadership.

Your leadership on your behalf backed the wrong guy. Good luck with that.

Ramble on

Lng4mthreng said...

Ramble on is a very weak response to all of the obvious realities the post you trivialize presents. You may not like it but that is a factual representation nonetheless of the realities of your profession, management and great failures of the educational system.

Ramble on is what many of the union, administration and teachers ranks need to do. I agree with NJEAha so attack me now as that post is truthful.

Accountability is job 1 said...

I concur as to the tenure status of many who teach along side many whose dedication and diligence is internally questioned as they watch others whose performance is permitted to be lazy and non productive. This is no different in most state jobs as well. There are three types of workers 1) is dedicated and works hard every day 2) watches 1 and 3 and merely maintains the status quo 3) does little and gets away with such performance or conduct once again negatively effecting 1 and 2. The NJEA and all other departments or leadership know this all too well.

Hold the Pickle and the Religion said...

Are you really suggesting that God's grace will have something to do with how teachers teach, parents parent, and students learn?

If it is about God's grace, why doesn't the mission or vision statement hold God accountable?

Just the FACTS Maam said...

Should not those who teach, administrate and budget be held accountable as stated above ?

God has NOT BEEN ALLOWED for far too long in most every aspect of life all due to political correctness. It is however written plainly and clearly on the money that is used perpetuate the failed educational system in our state and across our nation. FACT !

When a district like Camden, Trenton, Newark, Asbury park, Patterson and many other areas and districts in New Jersey spend three times plus per student (Camden spends $38,000.00 per student) (Newark has over 200 administrators and support staff earning over $100,000.00 per year) then that of our own district with a dismal failure rate of graduations as well as abysmal test scores year after year after year.

Will more money solve these problem ? It has not done so for years. A relative of mine teaches in an Abbott District and tells me annually that she cannot spend all of the money they give her.

Liberal thinkers have answered that question with billions of dollars for generations and it is a complete and total failure throughout our society and in many areas and aspects of our lives. FACT !

Money does not solve the educational problem. Teachers who cannot teach along with parents who don't parent are a main cause of all of society and educational institutions ills. Fix these problems first and you can start on the road to accountability, FINALLY. FACT !

Does anyone think this group is going to stand up to the very powerful union leadership? I think not. In the past this same cast of characters did not have the perseverance and tenacity to stand up for the populace and will not do so again. In these economic times it is time for the public to take back control. The amorousness that was put in Joey has turned out to be a diappointment. Who on this nine member panel will represent the average citizen against this very union that is out for themselves at any cost to you, including losing your home. Kenny? O'Connell? Donoghue? Ruprecht? Howard? Delaney? Gambino? Rubino? Warren? Who?

Go to church on Sunday or temple on Friday. Listen to your priest or rabbi speak about love, acceptance, forgiveness, peace, etc. Go to a blog on Saturday and write a insulting message. Being a religious hypocrite, priceless.

And yes, I am an atheist.

"Students will become life-long learners, critical thinkers, and creative problem solvers who achieve success as honorable members of society."
How are you going to measure this kind of accountability?
Also-Does this accountability mean that any parent of a MARSD student can sue the Board of Education for criminal offenses they commit during or after their school years if they don't become honorable members of society?

Plus- how much is this going to cost to be put on a plaque somewhere in the BOE office? Another waste of my taxes.

Aberdeener said...

There are several metrics we can implement that should be reliable indicators of post-high school success. Plus, there are ideas being discussed to maintain relationships with alumni and use them as a source of information.

The board intends to hold the administration accountable. The community needs to hold the board accountable.

Well thank CHRIST we have new mission and vision statements.

Message to Joey said...

A message from Bob Ingle, Trenton bureau chief for Gannett to Board of Ed members and teachers:
When the NJEA took on Christie and lost big time it demonstrated two things. The first is the NJEA backs the overpriced bloated bureaucracy that cheats kids out of an education and teachers out of individual recognition while giving New Jersey the highest property taxes in the nation.
The second is you can stand up to the NJEA and win.

SOS KAUFF86 said...

If you really are Bob Ingle PLEEEEEEASE come and do a series of articles on the dictatorial and thoroughly corrupt Norman Kauff Esquire and the corrupt wheeling and dealing soon to reach its corrupt maximum.

You see Mr. Ingle several higly questionable developmental deals, at least on headed up by a convicted felon and being negotiated completely by a soon to be convicted felon
(the same Norman Kauff Esq.)is soon to jammed through corruption filled the developmental approval process controlled by the same Norman Kauff Esquire before Chris Christie takes over Trenton. Mr. Ingle you see the rats and roaches in charge in Aberdeen are scurrying for their lives like a giant can of RAID is being opened and is about to be sprayed on Norman Kauff Esquire and his cohorts ever since Governor Elect Chris Christie won the election. Allow me to crow on his behalf as it was a resounding election win over the corrupt power BOSSES friend and soon to be, not soon enough for many, former Governor John Corzine.

PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE !

I beg of you come to Aberdeen and help us with our Kauff corruption laced problems. The host of the blog Mr. Joey Warren will help you with who you have to speak to first. Here is a hint "it is not the present town manager".

Then again the D's do control the planning board and zoning board and can be of great HELP to those who accepted their token gifts imprinted with the candidates names on them. Who do you think bought those trinkets? One guess.

UPDATE: Kauff and CME in Marlboro

New reports Sunday in the Asbury Park Press state that Marlboro is considering drastic changes to its sewer authority. This decision the article advises was based on input and analysis by financial experts within and without the town finance department and with input from, hold on, hold on, hold on where almost there yes and but of course CME ASSOCIATES.

CHA CHING! CHA CHING! CHA CHING!

That is the cash register ringing loudly once again for CME, Dave Samuels and the CORRUPT plague that is Norman Kauff. What this will mean more then likely that a supposedly new management team and direction will be put in place that will more then likely allow Kauff supposed professionals to charge BIG FEES for their assistance and invaluable(????) guidance and expertise (?????).

We will have to wait and see?

It should be noted that the one vote on the council membership against this drastic and secretive change was from a council member serving to protect our country in Iraq. I guess our Norman Kauff could not get through to this brave soldier to use his ?????influence?????.

On another note:

MARLBORO, ABERDEEN AND MANALAPAN.

We can assume they will have to make up the monies lost since CME will probably get kicked to the curb under the new R control put in place by the voters this past election day. Too bad we are stuck with CME, Samuels, Kauff and his new cast of (soon to be morally bankrupt) characters beholding to their "BOSS".

What was this about "trinkets buying votes" as suggested in the post above? Please advise.

Aberdeener,
Can you confirm or deny a rumour that is circulating around the district...that a high school teacher was escorted out of the building, by the police, on Friday for inappropriate behavior toward another staff member. And if this did occur, can you tell me why our chief school administrator chose not to inform district parents of the incident? This is certainly something that I would expect our school leadership to share with parents. We entrust our children to their care and we should be informed if serious incidents are occuring in our schools. Another concern is a rumoured drug related arrest at the high school last week. This is something I think should be shared with parents as well. I would like to know about such matters from those we employ as administrators in our district and not from the "word on the street". We deserve better and this is unacceptable. Your thoughts, please.
Concerned Parent

Aberdeener said...

Concerned Parent,

I've heard the rumors as well but the law bars me from discussing any confidential issues, particularly relating to staff and students.

To my knowledge, there were no arrests last week and I'm fairly certain I'd have been informed if there were any.

Beyond that, I can't comment. I'm sorry I can neither confirm, deny, nor clarify.

Face reality O'Malley said...

The one that needs to be escorted out of the school would be the man that parents complained about last week at the school board meeting.

Can you guess who repeated complaints have come in about so often lately?

Here is a hint:

One good season does not an excuse make.

OUCH ! The truth is terrible ?

You can forget about that one, the cowards in charge will never touch him. I think they're afraid of a "card" game.

Anonymous said...

This chief school administrator does a horrible job of keeping the public informed on anything. Remember the coach that was arrested or the administator that refused to help a student and crossed the line on threats. The public was not informed of anything and these issues just went away. This is how this guy operates and this board of ed should demand more transparency and some reassurance he is dealing with these issues. He denies we have any drug related issues and cooks the books to make sure we don't. Don't forget, the praises from the people who hired him will be forthcoming, right around raise time. Remember neither comfirm, deny, or clarify Joey. Now you can't ask a board member if incidents are happening within our schools. We know the superintendent won't keep us informed.

Aberdeener said...

Since the law bars us from discussing confidential personnel or student matters, what's your proposed solution?

Tired of same old said...

Proposed Solution:comments welcome
The Superintnendent is required to keep the school board and the public informed. As part of his respobsibilites related to the community he must keep them informed about school matters. He should hear complaints against the schools and resolve controversies. Providing accurate, timely information to the public is an important function of public institutions. The efficient delivery of this information fosters trust and enables citizens to draw conclusions and take action based on information, as opposed to rumor and gossip. The manner in which the school district performs this function impacts how the public views the district. The school board (thats you Joey) must see to it that there are adequate and direct means for keeping the local citizenry informed and for keeping itself informed about the publics wishes. You must agree that this superintendent and board do not ensure effective communication, ie all these unanswered rumors, and promote community envolvement when it matters. We need more proactive methods to get community members more directly invovled with the school board and its decisions. Perhaps the board would gain more community particiaption if they acknowledged the participation they currently receive. The perceptions is they really don't care about the imput they receive to warrant communicating with them in the future. When is the last time you tried to build involvement and relationships with the senior citizens as a stakeholder and contributor to our schools. An effort has to be seriously made to enlist the entire community as partners in our public education.

Yes it is true an teacher was pulled out of the HS. For Joey to say he heard a rumor is disengenious since Glastein was present and it is hard to believe that this happened with O'Malley's knowledge or that he did not inform the board members. That Joey can't speak about it I'm sure is true-why he just doesn't say that is another story.

Joey has made some interesting assertions recently regarding how discipline at the HS is so much better. There was even an article in the Independent touting their progress. It really is plain and simple and some folks may have begun to figure it out. Don't report incidents, intimidate your faculty and tell them to keep the dirty laundry in house and the public is kept in the dark. Just like someone with high blood pressure ignoring the symtons will eventually cause a major health issue ignoring the problems in the high school will come back to bite us as well.

Aberdeener said...

Once again, the law bars us from discussing confidential matters pertaining to personnel and students.

Let's say a teacher grabs an eight year old in class, turns him upside down, and shakes the kid until his lunch money falls onto the floor. The teacher then steals the kid's lunch money.

Let's say the entire incident was caught on videotape and the teacher admitted to everything. The superintendent then put him on administrative leave and filed a complaint with the police.

The teacher was not arrested. No criminal charges have yet been filed.

As a board member, I've been fully informed. What can I legally tell the public?

Perception problem...or reality???
Our chief school administrator loves to talk about what he's done right, or what he plans to do, etc. And, that's fine with me. And, I give him the recognition he deserves when he tackles a problem and makes progress &/or improvements. I take issue, however, with his handling of the more controversial aspects of the job. It is becoming more apparent that when it's not good news, or it's a controversial issue, the welcome mat is pulled in, door shut and blinds drawn. This is the problem with talking when it's convenient, self-gratifying or self-ingratiating and chosing not to talk when it's not a positive reflection of leadership in this district.

Anonymous said...

Some students "reportedly" saw this teacher being escorted. So, can you clarify this. Did something occur that you cannot talk about? Or, is it possible something did happen and the Supt. did not inform the BOE of the matter? You can give a response that is not in violation of the oath you took as a BOE member. No one mentioned an arrest. Let's try this, as a member of the community, am I entitled to an answer to the following question? Is there a high school teacher that has been placed on administrative leave for an incident that occured last week? Or is that a matter of secrecy too?

As for the prior post, sorry but I think administrative leaves are also confidential unless it's long-term and a long-term replacement needs to be hired.

Aberdeener,
I do not discredit myself and I am not posting anti-Christian sentiment. If you want to be a Christian, a Jew, a Muslim, etc, I could care less. Just to prove my point that I am not anti-Christian I will say this. All religion and independent thought are in direct conflict with each other. You cannot be an independent thinker and be practicing a religion. If you doubt me, just think about how many things you do in your life and see how many of them relate back to your religion and God. If you were truly an independent thinker, you would do what you want without any concern for the religion you practice. However, this is not permissible because religion does not allow it.

and if I am not mistaken, using some of the names of people in the school on here could be very dangerous for all involved including some of the accusations in the first few of the 20 posts -

Mr. Warren, some of the names and accusations should be taken off here. It is not fair in a public forum. Even at your BOE meetings, when someone uses names- they are told to stop. This is crazy.

Anonymous said...

Aberdeener, you can report the details of an incident but leave out the names? Thats probably better than just sweeping it under the rug, ya think?

Aberdeener said...

Even without the names, the information is still confidential so long as somebody in the public can determine who it references. For example, there have been a number of allegations on this blog regarding certain coaches. Nobody mentioned any names but many people knew whom was being referenced.

Play ball said...

You must admit Mr. Aberdeener that the types of allegations, confirmed and repetitive questionable conduct, statements made to impressionable students and parents is somewhat alarming. All these things coupled with shall I say shenanigans with questionable coaching assignments and more is all the writing on the wall that many of us taxpayers need.

How many incidents with the same responsible parties will be allowed before it costs us significant monies of God forbid, someone is injured?

By the way what is the school board going to do about the Maroon and STEAL organization that the school board leadership has been warned repeatedly needs to register as a not for profit, keep better records and be held ACCOUNTABLE by the school board leadership for significant monies collected in varying ways. In the private sector such things are mandated, audited, investigated and most importantly they should not be IGNORED.

Please respond as you are able.

Anonymous said...

Joe,

Outside artist made some pretty severe allegations in one of the first few posts....used names of people who work in the ditrict- not elected.

How can you let those allegations and accusations stay on this blog? IT IS NOT RIGHT.

Come on.....did you see it?

Aberdeener said...

Anon,

The demarcation line is "public figure". Norman Kauff was never elected and hasn't worked for the township in years but he is still very much a public figure.

Play Ball,

I disagree that there have been more incidences recently. Instead, I think we're just hearing about them more because of this blog and some posters trying to entice me into an ethics violation.

I agree that Maroon and Steel needs to be reviewed but I don't see it happening anytime soon. We have to pick and choose our battles and I'm not convinced that bringing the organization under school auspices, with all of our work rules, would benefit the students.

Marron and Steal ????? said...

Aberdeener I ask you these questions then:

Q) Is there any liability to our school district then for this Martucci controlled fund raising entity?

Q) Is there any liability for a coach with a penchant for violence and with possible anger control issues being around children, school sanctioned activities and the like?

Q) Is there even one good reason then that after a recent accounting review along with past recommendations that the Maroon and Steal be made to register as a fund raising entity, a fund raising entity that is based on our school grounds, should finally be held accountable and monitored officially and finally be properly registered as has been suggested and officially required to do so for sound legal reasons?

Mr. Aberdeener your statement that "it may not happen anytime soon" does little to make us think this school board or its leadership will properly seek accountability from Caoch Martucci and his bank, much less follow the recommendations offered by accounting and tax professionals.

Hold the Pickle said...

Aberdeener,

How can you, as a member of the Board of Education, allow someone to slander one of the teachers in your district?

It is clear that outsideartist is unstable. How can you allow her to ridicule a teacher in the high school and make statements that are unsubstantiated?

Don't give me the free speech argument. That would hold water if you were not a member of the Board of Education. It is your responsibility to defend those who work for the Board of Education, not allow them to be humiliated.

Aberdeener said...

Marron,

I'm not aware of any special liability issues regarding the athletics program.

Pickle,

I agree that teachers are not public figures. I must've missed the statement you're referencing. Why not send me a partial quote and I'll delete it.

Anonymous said...

To start I am not a teacher, (which I am sure will be questioned) -

Mr. Warren, I disagree with how you answered one the comments. I think as an agent of the district, you should not allow people to slander certain and named teachers on here. It will open up a can of worms.

Johnny does not get an "A" in math, so mom and dad can go on here an attack that teacher with all kinds of questionable accusations? I am not saying the "artist" is lying, just not a good practice for you as the blog administrator and BOE member.

Here is the quote. MY DAUGHTER HAD A 94% in Miss Princess Saieds' Class,in 2006-2007 HER junior Year.

As you can see, it is not only teachers she is slandering. Aberdeener, you should be removing these posts. These are administrators that you are supposed to be collaborating and forming successful partnerships with. By allowing these personal accustions, you are undermining the importance of these relationships, whether you agree with her or not.

When Martucci gets sued who will pick up[ his legal fees as a school employee? When the coach with the violence prone conduct on the field and off attacks someone- on school property or at another school- who will be paying the legal bill for him.

US TAXPAYERS WILL BE. WHY ?

The Coach Martucci gravy train and abuse of students and their parents needs to be kicked to the curb. The writing as they say is on the wall.

Likewise Maroon and "Steal" needs to be officially and legally advised of what they need to do to not be a liability for the taxpayers, school system and more that are not served by their little click.

Congratuations to Charlie Rogers and the football team on the success of this season. He has turned this program around and has made us proud. He has made this the only team with a great chance of winning a state championship.

Play Ball said...

Maybe we can get some other violence prone coaches like Mr. Rogers and we maybe we could win a national football title.

What an idiot who posted above me. They seemed to think that all should be forgiven and that our children should be allowed to be around such a man simply because we are winning some football games.

Next thing this idiot will say is that the $2,000,000.00 football field with all of its accesories attached was a great investment when we did not have working computers district wide for the students to learn with.

Football is not life. When our children go for jobs not one of them will be asked how many football games did your school win.

Mr. Warren,
Here is a question you can answer as a board member. Where does all the money from the concession stand go that the taxpayers paid for? Can you tell us how much profit that has made to date and if it goes back into the general fund. Larger crowds, extra home playoff games should mean more profit for the school. Can not find it anywhere in the budget summary.

It can't be Coach M. as he is pretty busy already. I find it all too telling that after repeated professional advice and the obvious problems that we have heard about and those in the past we have not heard about coupled with this school board and those in years past, all of them failed to address this lingering and volatile issue.

I ask all of you is Coach M. that powerful? What are they afraid of? Dr. O'Malley they ALL WORK FOR YOU. Time to man up bucko! Don't wait until something even more serious happens. As soon as football season is over you better cut your losses.

Too much b s and not enough answers to too many questions surrounds Coach M. He may be a coach this year but he is not a god. You cut him he will bleed. That was a metaphor so relax all of you alarmists. I am not telling anyone to physically harm anyone. Jeez.

REALITY SPEAKS said...

WARNING!

IT STARTED!

THE WORST FEAR OF ANY NEW JERSEY TAXPAYER IS UNDERWAY IN ATLANTIC CITY ALL THIS WEEK.

THE LEAGUE OF MUNICIPALITIES CONFERENCE IS UNDERWAY!

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? THAT MEANS THAT ALL OF OUR LOCAL POLITICIANS, TAXPAYER SOAKING PROFESSIONALS AND "COCKROACH" LOBBYISTS ARE GATHERING TO PAT EACH OTHER ON THEIR BACKS AND TELL EACH OTHER HOW HARD AND RESPONSIBLY THEY WORK ON BEHALF OF THE TAXPAYERS OF NEW JERSEY. LAIRS EACH AND EVERYONE OF THEM.

I THINK AND SINCERELY HOPE THEY WILL ALL, EACH AND EVERY STINKING ONE OF THEM ATTEND THE SPEECH BY GOVERNOR ELECT CHRIS CHRISTIE THAT WILL BE GIVEN DURING THE CONFERENCE. IT IS MY SINCERE HOPE THAT HE WILL GIVE THEM A DOSE OF THE REALITY THAT THE "GOOD O'L BOY NETWORK" OF POLITICS UNUSUAL IS OVER. THAT WILL BE THE FACT THAT THE "GOOD O'L BOY NETWORK HAS WORKED US INTO THIS $8,000,000,000.00

THEY OUGHT TO TAKE THE LIKES OF GEORGE NORCROSS AND INCARCERATE HIM FOR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY. THIEVING POLITICAL POWER HUNGRY PEOPLE LIKE GEORGE NORCROSS HAVE ROBBED OUR STATE BY GIVING THE CORRUPT LEADERSHIP ALL OVER THE STATE MERE CRUMBS WHILE THE LIKES OF GEORGE NORCROSS AND OTHERS FEED HEARTILY AT THE TAXPAYER FUNDED BUFFET.

IT IS TIME THESE LEECHES AND SELF CONGRATULATING TAXPAYER SOAKING LOW LIFES ARE CRUSHED UNDER FOOT. THESE DREGS OF SOCIETY WHO SUPPOSEDLY "WORK FOR ALL OF US". I FOR ONE AM TIRED OF SEEING CONTRACT AFTER CONTRACT AWARDED WITHOUT ANY REAL OPPORTUNITY FOR A TRUE "LOW BID" PROCESS. "LOW BID" IS A JOKE! LOW BID IS MERELY A TERM USED IN EVERY GOVERNMENTAL CONTRACTUAL PROCESS TO PRESENT A RESPONSIBLE FRONT TO THE PUBLIC. THE OTHER WORD THAT IS FAR MORE COSTLY IS TOO OFTEN USED AFTER THE CONTRACT IS AWARDED IS THE WORD "EXTRA". THE WORD "EXTRA" IS ALMOST AS COSTLY AS THE INITIAL CONTRACT. THIS IS THE CASE IN MOST EVERY AREA OF CONTRACT AWARDING GOVERNMENTAL PROCEDURES UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE "LOW BID" AND PREVAILING WAGE LIE THAT COSTS ALL OF US SO MUCH. PREVAILING WAGE? T IS A TERM USED TO PAY THREE TIMES AS MUCH FOR SOMETHING WE COULD HAVE BOUGHT FOR ONE THIRD THE PRICE IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR. THAT IS BEST EXEMPLIFIED BY MOST EVERY SCHOOL SYSTEM PURCHASE. A STAPLER THAT YOU AND I CAN BUY FOR TEN DOLLARS COSTS SCHOOL DISTRICTS THIRTY DOLLARS. ADD IT UP ON A STATEWIDE BASIS. THESE ARE THE PRACTICES OF THOSE CELEBRATING DOWN IN ATLANTIC CITY HAVE ALLOWED TO OR WHO HAVE FED OFF OF FOR FAR TOO LONG.

THE REALITY THAT GOVERNMENT COSTS MONEY GOES WITHOUT SAYING. THE SAME GOES FOR EDUCATION OF COURSE. HOWEVER THE COSTS OF A SELF PERPETUATING AND IRRESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT HAS GOTTEN US TO THIS POINT. ENOUGH EXCUSES HAVE BEEN HEARD AND WE SHALL UNFORTUNATELY HEAR MORE AS CORZINE SHUFFLES OUT THE DOOR WITH HIS HEAD BOWED IN SHAME. DON'T WORRY ABOUT FORMER GOVERNOR JOHN CORZINE THOUGH YOU CAN BE SURE HIS BUDDY PRESIDENT BARRACK HUSSEIN OBAMA WILL REWARD HIM FOR AN STELLAR AND COMPLETELY INEPT JOB WELL DONE HERE IN THE GARDEN STATE. LOOK FOR CORZINE TO BE AN ASSISTANT FINANCIAL "CZAR" WHICH DOES NOT REQUIRE A VETTING PROCESS. OBAMA HAS SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH PEOPLE HE CALLS CZARS FOR THAT REASON. NOBODY CHECKS ON THEIR FAILURES OR ACCOMPLISHMENTS. JUST LIKE OBAMA HIMSELF WHO SPENT MORE TIME AS PRESIDENT THEN HE DID AS A SENATOR. I MEAN AFTER ALL LOOK AT ALL OF HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LOOK TOO HARD AS THERE WERE NONE.

SO WATCH YOUR LOCAL N.J. NEWS FOR COVERAGE OF THE CHRISTIE SPEECH AND TRY AND SEE WHAT GOVERNOR ELECT CHRISTIE WILL TRY TO TELL THE "GOOD O'L BOYS" AND THE DEEPLY ENTRENCHED TRENTON INSIDERS THIS WEEK DOWN IN ATLANTIC CITY. I FOR ONE AM HOPEFUL THAT AT LEAST ATLANTIC CITY ITSELF WILL GET SOME BENEFIT FROM ALL OF THESE "BLOW HARDS" AND "SELF CONGRATULATERS" HAVE ADDED TO THE CASH REGISTERS OF LOCAL BUSINESSES ALONG WITH THE CASINOS.

I WONDER HOW MANY OF OUR ELECTED, APPOINTED, PROFESSIONALS AND MUNICIPAL WORKERS REALLY HAD TO GO ON OUR DIME. MAYBE NEXT YEAR THEY CAN HOLD IT IN MATAWAN AND HELP THE LOCAL MERCHANTS LIKE ME.

SURE THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN?

Coreenas peers I certainly hope are now doing to him what he was on the computer seeking to do to little boys. I hope he is now the little boy in his own little sordid prison story with his *close personal friends*. I hope deep down inside that Kauff, Sobel and all of the others raping Aberdeen find new meanings to the term *close personal friends* in their own prison cell. Right Mayor?

Hey Rocky any updates on Coreena?

Let us know if you hear anything.

Thanks Brother

Not always a fan of O'Malley, but I think if you wait until next year you will see some changes. I'm willing to give him some time to fix this mess. After all, it did not start with him-he inherited this mess. If he does nothing by the end of this year then he deserves to be blasted.

NSectionJoe said...

Had the day off today so I took some time to look over the blog. I also took the time to look at the live senate hearings in Washington concerning healthcare. It was very interesting to watch the same people who did not do their jobs who then in turn bailed out Wall Street, caused the Mortgage crisis, thought that Cash for Clunkers was a good idea and who now have the audacity to think they can now legislate healthcare for each and every American from cradle to grave.

With the subject matters on the Aberdeener, local news reports, bobble heads and more concerning our local leadership, national leadership and even school boards, coupled with what I witnessed today I am reminded of part of a phrase I read while in college. The phrase as I recall went as follows.

A government big enough to supply you with everything you need, is also a government big enough to take everything you have...

It was a quote by Thomas Jefferson.

History that is being made today by our elected leadership will not be viewed well, ever.
As has been said before and will be said forever. History repeats itself.

Think about it.

A quote by Jon Stewart:

"Republicans are for limited goverment. Goverment limited to Republicans."

Think about it.

NSectionJoe said...

How can Anonymous even think of comparing the likes of a Thomas Jefferson to a comedian with a badly done talk/interview show? I find the assertion laughable.

The clear thinking and honesty of the Jefferson statement, all be it so sadly true some three hundred plus years later. That as was stated by one of the brave founders of our our country, not some half-assed comedian like Stewart.

As for the Republicans being self serving in their leadership role, I ask you one thing. With all of the money the Democrats have spent on welfare, Abbott districts, free lunch and all of the other -big government is your daddy- type programs, why are the people the democrats and their inept governmental leadership supposed to have helped over the past fifty plus years with such programs not really been helped or to have much improved their situations in life, even with all of that money? From inner cities, to the Appalachian mountain regions people live below the poverty line of every colr and nationality. Why?

Why did 100 years of give, spend, insert, control, feed, comfort and all the other help we supposedly needed to give to the - less fortunate amongst us- not really work?

With all of the bailouts and monies given with little hope of ever recovering the greatest portion of those hundreds of billions, ever. I ask one simple question. Where is my bailout? Where is the middle-class bailout so I can afford the college payments I will have to pay Rutgers for the next seven years for my oldest daughter? Where is the $30M that Corzine promised to give for the new stadium expansion that now cannot pay for itself because Corzine failed in his promise. He gets to just walk away. Why? My monthly payment to Rutgers are paying to put butts in those seats in that stadium rather then buy books or computers and the like, while that same school may now be unaffordable for my other daughter to attend? But Rutgers added onto the stadium, WOW. Governmental priorities are ass backwards.

Do not even try and come back at me with the typical Limbaugh and O'Reilly bashing that is so often used as the democrat excuse of choice, when confronted with solid questions. O'Reilly and Limbaugh did not write the healthcare bill. They did not give without much monitoring $900B to Wall Street to only see them reward themselves with bonuses. Like Susan Powter used to say -stop the insanity.

I am as stated before a IndependentRepublicrat. I vote for the person on what their leadership and decision making possibilities might be. I do not base my choices on old time party affiliation that so many seem to stick to so steadfastly like cement.

All political affiliations have failed each and every one of us. The system may be the system, but the system is broken. New Jersey is damn sure proof of that.

Think about my previous statement. Do you really trust the same leadership who failed to monitor, Wall St. the banking industry, the mortgage industry and many other such financial mistakes through negligence and inept oversight to now reshape the lifeline that is our national healthcare system?

The reality is frightening but it is the only government we have. They can grandstand all they want, but in the end they do not really know what is in those 2500 pages or in that healthcare bill or where the $2.5 trillion dollars it will cost to implement the program will come from. A program that they don't really know will even work.

Ask yourself why so many former political leaders retire from politics only to end up in the healthcare system as lobbyists or consultants? Their is money in that their healthcare that is why. Anyone surprised at that fact?

Think about it before you defend the failures of leadership that simply fail over and over again.

I am a bit confused. You argue against big government, but then you want the government to monitor Wall St., the banking industry, and other financial institutions. Which is it? You are either for no regulation and small government, or you are for regulation and big government.

By the way, all the things you listed occurred because the Republicans, who controlled both houses of Congress and the Presidency, gave Wall St. and the banking industry less regulation. Don't you remember Phil Graham?

Pickle misinformed ? said...

You are more then a bit confused and that is obvious. Perhaps you should reread the post. What was pointed out was that our government failed to use the laws and regulations already in place and it cost us plenty. He pointed out the obvious facts that we TAXPAYERS had to not only fund the original government checkers who failed in their responsibilities, but we then had to expend hundreds of billions of dollars to ensures the solvency of the companies our government failed to monitor or control in the first place.

As for Phil Graham and Bush let us try the name Bill Clinton who in the usually thirst for political correctness allowed and actually forced mortgage companies and banks to give loans to hundreds of thousands who could not afford a down payment to buy a house much less the monthly payment. Thus causing the mortgage crisis. The same people who failed us on all of the above now want us to entrust them with our health care.
It made a lot of sense but you seem to have a left leaning slant so you were not open to the reality that he pointed out in the first place. He did not mention any specific party he blames all of them. he did figure out in advance that you would throw republicans into the mix. He was right. Hold the pickle needs to hold their opinion until they read the post again. Next....

The firewall between the investment and traditional banking areas was taken down by the more conservative members of both parties... Then, as Greenspan testified, in 2005, banks were allowed to trade securities overseas. This international market for bundled mortgages exploded the demand so greed allowed these banks to give away mortgages like so much junk candy in order to feed the market. Poor people did not cause the recession, no matter how much better it makes you feel to believe so!!!

Do not overthink this ? said...

Maybe it is not simple enough for all you BIG THINKERS?

So I'll dumb it down for you.

If you go to a car dealership with no down payment, bad credit or no credit and you do not have a job that pays you enough to sustain the payments on that car, should the credit manager working for that dealerships owner, let you buy that car? The answer is no.

That was what happened with the mortgage crisis under Bill Clinton.

There is plenty of blame for all of them in all parties.

Should we now trust them with health care is the question. I say NO, a thousand times NO!

Sigh. If the dealership could trade the car loan overseas and take advantage as the market overflated the value, the dealer would be giving cars loans away at the unemployement line.

Wow, a quote from a slave owning aristocrat who didn’t want to pay his taxes. The fact of the matter is TJ owned slaves, expounded a policy of forced removal of Native Americans from the “the South” and didn’t apply his own “liberal” ideology while running his estate – unless of course he was dealing with the female “hired” help. Now that’s good “clear” thinking.
I do agree with statement, “half assed comedian like Stewart.”

Reality bites said...

Big Joe and his statement in regards to Thomas Jefferson was on the right on under the referred part of the Jefferson quote. Does any clear thinking person not see that? The abuse of a government big enough to provide everything can also take everything away that you have. that is happening right now.

As to the suggestion as to Thomas Jefferson and all the other liberal bullshit. Get a life. That was the times and that was the man of that time all be it unfortunate by today's standards of course.

Do you not think that the likes of political leadership since Jefferson has not done far worse? Better yet do you not think it is not being done to all of us right now in different forms? It most certainly is. It is almost is being mandated by by this president our present governor and the other leeches in government that call themselves our leaders.

Are you that stupid?

More men who assault people and cause themselves to lose lucrative pro-football careers for their repetitively violent conduct on and off the field should not be allowed around any of our students. FACT!

Wake up you idiot!

Aren't you late for your "Moron and Steal" meeting? That's right "Moron" not "Maroon" if you think one winning football season is a reason to allow a repetitively violent person to work with our students and represent the school, and "Steal" not Steel because they "steal" money away from all the other sports for Martucci's football program only.

The truth is a bitch ain't it?

The Coach and the Assaulter need to go. Now!

Anonymous said...

Sounds like a bitter parent! what your son didn't get something! Martucci is a legend! I hope he wins again so he can shove it in your face loser!

I pray for you said...

Yeah Coach M. is a legend in his own mind. It is obvious the anonymous posting directly above this post, shows that you do not have a problem with a THUG living the THUG LIFE in front of impressionable children?

So your OK with a man who has been repeatedly involved with violence against others on several occasions being allowed to instruct children. Amazing?

You also seem to not have a problem with Coach M. and his recent blatant and ignorant statements to players concerning players who quit the team "your dead to me", and then to ignorantly repeat such statements to their parents in front of a school administrator who failed to correct such action, or likewise the same man who showed great disrespect to the National Anthem by talking during such a moment. That along with other questionable decisions, statements, purchases and more over the years by Coach M. that were sadly ignored by many in leadership positions.

But now since we have had one good football season you think it is also OK to have this THUG influencing children. That I must tell you is idiotic.

But if it is OK with you to have such a person coaching children would it then be OK to hire pedophiles, drug dealers, pimps or murderers? Let me know when you realize how stupid your thought process is.

The others of us you see who choose to not ignore such violent tendencies of Mr. R. and likewise those of us who think responsibly on such people being around any child, find your logic flawed, typical and to quote a former school board member who made even a more ignorant statement when she said "not many people from our side of town get scholarships, so the least they can do for us is give us a football field".

Just so you know not many people would agree with your beliefs or of that of the former school board member. But you go with that line of flawed thinking. It is sadly all too typical.

Not too old to be concerned said...

I concur the perceived or actual power of Mr. Martucci has been allowed or feared by leadership for far too long. It is long past a time for a change after his most recent and numerous examples of his actual or perceived power.

As for the violent proned coach and his on the field and on the streets exploits of assaults and involvement with various law enforcement agencies. It is obvious that something should be done now and probably should have been done officially some time ago.

Action should be taken sooner rather then later to avoid any more of Mr. M.'s questionable conduct, hiring of staff with histories of violence against others, or any further abuses of students and their parents by Mr. M. in the future.

I ask the Aberdeener one question.

Should the Board of Ed take action to assure this coach or other coaches in the future have a code of conduct instituted and actually be followed?

In my opinion such a standard should be adopted and enforced as to the professional and personal conduct by coaches, teachers or any other staff members working in our district who interact so closely with children of any age. This of course would be due to their daily contact and interaction with impressionable children who look up to and admire such people. Children of any age know what is going on around them. Quite often more then we may think or want to admit.

I am certain many believe that this coach and his conduct warrants review and far more then monitoring due to the repeated offenses and violence against others. It is rumored that this individual has also received help during his court proceedings some time ago in another town as well. That would be a shame if it is true.

It is long past the time that these matters be looked into in a serious review of our processes in this district. As well as the conduct of all who interact with our children deserves serious review and strict enforcement, to avoid liability for the district and its taxpayers by such individuals.

All staff must adhere to a code of conduct and the superintendent has the power to discipline anyone who doesn't. However, whether the superintendent takes any action is confidential.

Give credit where credit is due. Charlie turned this program around for our students and made them winners again. If he did something wrong the administration would have done something about it. They didn't do anything, so get over it. He is a mentor to many of these students, like it or not, simply by the position the school district put him in and they are paying him for it. He is only doing his job and it looks like a job well done.

Get real with violent coaches said...

A job well done? Remember that statement the next time he assaults someone and our school district and the taxpayers that pay the bills have to pay for his prevalent violent actions.

You football parents are so easy to forget his violent history. Remember what you posted here today when he strikes again. And he will strike again. He does not know any better.

If this district leadership does not seriously consider removing him and Martucci they are fools and should be fired.

Mr. Aberdeener do you know how many scholarships for athletics are given every year? Please advise. Thank you.

Play ball said...

Lets try again for anonymous in BOLD PRINT. Two parents had meetings with Coach Martucci in regards to their sons quitting the team and Coach Martucci telling them "you are dead to me now". There may also have been a talk given to the remaining players that may also question Coach Martucci and his choice of words and his possible intention during that talk.

This is not a nice man if such things are said to impressionable youth as well as parents in front of school officials and students parents who may have allowed such behavior due to Martucci's record or perceived power base, the Maroon and Steel Parents Organization. Mere words if you look at how that organization is run or more importantly has been told how to run.

We may soon see the metal of the man heading up our district who better deal with these things as well as Coach Rogers. It seems that some are too easy to allow violent prone instructors merely since we have had one winning season as of late.

Such logic is slanted, confused and all too typical.

Please understand it may be thought that many students get scholarships off of athletics. The amount of money placed into such hopes should have an accounting. It may not be as suggested or perhaps the sports programs we fund have considerable results. it is hoped you find the truth. Thank you. Watch out for the leftover monster. They lurk in the back of our refrigerators sometimes for extended periods of time.

Like the late great George Carlin said in one of his comedic routines some time ago.

Did you ever look into your frig and see something way in the back of the frig that you may have forgotten was even there? Did you then ask yourself this question. IS THAT MEAT OR CAKE?

Beware of the leftover monster.

For all the new Aberdeen residents. The club that was formed back in the 70's was the Fathers Club, fathers of players who wanted more the football program. The Maroon and Steel Club offset the programs that otherwise the Boe would pay for. Football Camps and equipment. It is not and easy task to run a football program. I agree with the previous poster can we just be happy for the accomplishments of our team.

You gotta be kidding? said...

So I am wrong?

So we should just allow the actual offenses and disrespectful conduct of a taxpayer employee in Coach M to continue unabated. That along with a coaching stipend payment and liability coverage for a part time school district representation for Coach R, even though he has been arrested for violent behavior on more then a few occasions?

That mindset is laughable.

Just because a winning season has occurred this year, all is forgiven as to this disrespectful and violence prone behavior.

So all is still right with the world according to Coach M?
