I wonder what Chuck Rosenthal has to say about this development.

The Erie times news has always had a friendly relationship with william garvey. The erie times news is also a big backer of that pizza boy's community college wacko idea. It would not surprise me, given the election results yesterday, that you people will re-elect the pizza boy, and wind up with a stupid community college with garvey as president of it.

Well, the article WAS carried in the Times-News. And the article did say that Garvey will be president of this group. Don't people have a right to know that?

Lakerman, did you know that Gary Bukowski resigned from Mercyhurst a little over a year ago and is now in charge of fund raising at the Barber Center. Did that surprise you when he left the college?

People only have the right to know what the ETN wants them to know. Any thread that questions actions of them or any of their "network" will be immediately removed.

What ever happened to his brother Danny?

matt, I guess not. Is his wife still at the college messing up human resources?
Maybe Tom Gamble saw the value of getting rid of one of garvey's boys.
I did not know that Gary Bukowski's wife had worked at the college. Your account was the first I had heard of it.

Lakerman, did you read Rosenthal's book?

Rosenthal does not use anyone's real name except his own. Even Garvey is known as "Dan Callahan" in the book.

Gary Bukowski's "book" name is one I can't recall at the moment. But it's another Polish name that begins with the letter W.

Bukowski is mostly known by a nickname in the book: "The Wooj"

In reading the book, it was clear to me that Bukowski was either a victim of Garvey OR that Bukowski knew exactly "what" Garvey was. Honestly, you'd have to be totally naive to read the book and NOT get one of those two impressions.

But what is less clear is why Bukowski would want to remain so close to Garvey--for another 40+ years after all this stuff went on.

It's damn creepy.

Dan Bukowski works for the Erie school district. I think he is in charge of the culinary training program at Central Tech. I had no idea what he was doing until I saw him on TV last year with Jim Barker. Each year, the high school culinary students put on a mini-banquet. Barker uses the event to invite lots of local big shots to sample the food.

The whole thing is videotaped and shown on the school district cable channel.

Just a guess, but mine would be that Garvey has poured a lot of money into him. And probably made it possible for him to get into the "right" circles of influential people.

It will give Garvey a whole new group of young men to hit on.

Isn't he a little past his prime for that sort of thing? He must be 70 by now. I don't think with "young men" there would be much mutual attraction.

Matt, I was interviewed by a reporter from the pittsburgh post gazette during the garvey mess, and I told her I did not have any firsthand knowledge of garvey's activities. We did discuss some of the people who worked at mercyhurst who had played basketball for garvey when they were middleschoolers.
I did say that I found it surprising that any of them, if the allegations of molestation were true, would remain friends with garvey under the circumstances. The PG reporter said she had been covering such cases for thirty years, and that some very peculiar friendships and relationships continued into adulthood, and that the garvey situation did not surprise her at all.

Did anyone ever interview Gary Bukowski? He was very close to Garvey -- "like a son" -- and it would seem he'd have a lot of very relevant information about the man.

You're probably right. It probably isn't really too unusual. And Garvey did do a lot of favors for many of these people. Remaining silent has probably paid off for a number of them. You were interviewed by the Pittsburgh newspaper about all of this? Really?

Bukowski knows EVERYTHING. But Garvey also gave more help to Bukowski's career than he did to the career of any other former player. I highly doubt that Bukowski would even agree to an interview. And it's very likely that he was already asked and refused. Garvey didn't just help Bukowski get ahead at Mercyhurst. Garvey also advised him on his political campaigns.(Gary Bukowski was a country councilman for 20 years.)
