The sound is likely eminating from your family members grunting & snorting in their cages, waiting for someone to bring them a bucket or two of slop. Can you say Sooo-ey . MDC sucks. Word.
The Machine declines your application but you may still receive the Machine's sacrament. Bend over and receive, beyotch.

Crush. Crumble. Destroy. A code....and a way of life, beyotches.

Raked the chunks? I think NOT! I, along with a large crowd of on-lookers, watched in disgust and horror as your Big Pig Mama sucked that slop off of the ground like a Kirby Vacuum! That's what those 'strange noises' you heard were!

Hah-hah, there you go donkey boy . It's obvious many others know the 'true story'.

Got to admit, you are the first person I know that enjoys self-degradation so much that you invite it on yourself online. In real life you must fit the MDC mold to a T - shameless, spineless & immoral.
Disgusting life for a man.

Hopefully, after the School District building contract investigation , we'll have a School Sex Scandal investigation . Then they can track where the Village gate profits & city booth profits go.

Then maybe we will see some of our friends & neighbors being fitted for orange suits . Ain't that a shame ? We'll need a whole new city gov't., school board & authority members.

I'm saving my money now to buy Bubba a carton of cigarettes to take extra special care of them. LOL

I agree.

The authorities should consider investigating both Mon Valley Construction Management and Pennsylvania Project Management. A certain person was involved with both.

A local attorney, who is a majority owner of MVCM, should be forced to explain all about the interworking of MVCM and what services were performed for MASD for over $450,000. Were any federal funds involved? MVCM demanded and got a big upfront payment just like PPM.

That same local attorney was fined about $500 by the State Ethics Commission for some irregularities in back dating some of his financial disclosure statements.

We will never know until they simply have gate counters. Nothing extreme or expensive - just the MDC doesn't want anyone to know where thousands of dollars go . Don't forget the proceeds from the City Booth. Plus what are the kickbacks from those booths that are not 'Church' related. They don't get there for nothing.

You would at least think greedy Allegheny County would be interested in some x-tra tax dollars, but then again, it's the as usual corrupt 'Mon Valley Democratic Politics ' as usual. Please, prove me wrong.(with facts - not BS)

People who want to have a good time won't come to a International Village, and we've got entirely too many troublemakers here..Too many uhh, 40 year old adolescents, felons, power drinkers,body searching hobo, 6 foot 250 pound lard azzes, and trustees of modern chemistry...It's going to change. With a gate count or without a gate count.

There could be a big disparity between attendance and gate receipts. I heard attendance dropped off significantly from previous years.

You are so correct. The mayor and council implore our good citizens to practice and exhibit RESPECT toward others.

But this same council and mayor will do nothing as simple as selling numbered admittance tickets at the IV gate for paper trail accountability. Yet, they implore RESPECT from the citizens, but DISRESPECT our right to know, transparency, and impeccable financial accountability. And, they neglect or refuse to do a duty consistent with their oath of office. They are the primary source of DISRESPECT.

The mayor and council are hypocrites on the fraud of IV accountability.

Rather than start with RESPECT, perhaps the campaign should start with HONESTY AND TRANSPARENCY. Respect is a natural virtue that ensues from practicing honest and transparency.

A few cases in point about oppression, suppression and disrespect toward citizens and employees: The recent $1 million host fee source mystery, the $24 million MACM loan payoff, cover-up of the DUI incident, cover up of missing scrapped vehicles, bully firing of Mr. Pittman, and the MPD overtime investigation by the DA;

Why start with RESPECT when the mayor and council failed the honesty and transparency virtue test many times?

Because they think it actually means something to be a ghetto loving political hack feeding off the few remaining taxpayers & resembling the welfare leeches they now prefer to represent. Talk about small egos - wow , look - he's a Mucksleazeport politician.

6 months to IV , c'mon council , show some guts - appoint a public controlled, bonded IV expense control board - changed every year or two. Prove your Truth - Honesty & Respect crapola.

James Beckwith, Former President Of Southern Vermont College, Commits Suicide After Fraud Allegation

The Huffington Post | By William McGuinness

Acting Southern Vermont College President James Beckwith is seen in a video interview with the Manchester Journal's Andrew McKeever.
James Beckwith, former president of Southern Vermont College in Bennington, Vt., killed himself Wednesday with a self-inflicted gunshot, according to the Associated Press.

He was accused of embezzling $400,000 from the college to pay down two personal mortgages.

The Manchester Journal broke news of a civil forfeiture complaint filed against Beckwith by the Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Vermont on Wednesday. FBI offices in Rutland, Vt., and Albany, N.Y., collaborated on the investigation.

The Journal wrote:
According to the complaint and an accompanying affidavit prepared by the FBI, Beckwith embezzled $440,000 from the school between Oct. 2012 and Jan. 2013. Officials said he allegedly did so by fraudulently inducing college officials to issue three checks -- for $100,000,$160,000 and $180,000 -- to Merrill Lynch.

He allegedly provided false information that tied the missing funds to a dormitory construction project that fell through, according to the newspaper.
The AP reports Beckwith had been accused of depositing $260,000 into his personal account to pay down two mortgages on his South Londonderry home. The Manchester Journal clarified that no criminal charges apart from the civil complaint had been filed.

Beckwith was the college's acting president between January 2012 and last month, while President Karen Gross served as a senior policy adviser with the U.S. Department of Education, according to Southern Vermont College's website. Gross' return had been announced in late January, but the AP reports that Beckwith resigned on Feb. 3 when the college questioned him about the checks. An affidavit obtained by the Bennington Banner says the college then contacted the FBI on Feb. 8.

A Bennington Banner article from Feb. 8, 2012, reported that Beckwith, the school's COO and CFO, took over the president's duties somewhat reluctantly. "This has never been an office I've coveted. This has never been an office I've wanted," he told the paper. The article also identified him as the former managing partner for the New York office of Wolf, Block, Schorr and Solis-Cohen. He headed the now-defunct firm's financial and taxation department.

Why not demand that the Mayor reports on the gate take for year 2012?
