Can we get the kids in Ms. Beatty’s class involved in the environment? Do you think they will like my recent video “On The Waterfront”? http://healtheharbor.com/video/onthewaterfront.html Before you show them the video Ms. B, take a look at my resume below. Let me know if you think I am suitable for the kids? Some think I am a peanut and I don’t tell them any different till they get older. I have attached a few photos of me from the website. It’s your call Ms.B. I say get them started protecting the environment early. Mr. Floatie, the Ambassador for Heal the Harbor, Inc. is a lovable environmentalist & advocate for clean water. He is child-friendly, non-confrontational and devoted to clean-water awareness. Mr. Floatie is tall, dark and handsome and in the height of nautical fashion sporting his bright yellow sailor hat and matching boots, as well as a toilet paper bow tie and white gloves. Floatie is a man with a mission. He wants to expand his network by meeting as many people as he can, and drawing attention to a cause which concerns us all: a safe environment. He is not here to create an unpleasant controversy or bad feelings. He is fun-loving, family friendly and he likes to give out high-five handshakes, and Mr. Floatie Hershey bars. If you are lucky, he may even sing for you… he loves to entertain an audience! Mr. Floatie likes to appear live at special events around Rye, NY and other Long Island Sound Shore communities. He is here to peacefully promote the message of clean water, community health and the conditions on Hen Island in Rye, NY. Like the mailman, Mr. Floatie travels on land and on sea to deliver his message. Floatie loves to travel in style. On the mainland he can be seen cruising around in his ‘ Floatie Mobile,’ a sleek, blue 1938 Chevy that makes its appearance in strategic locations around town drawing attention and interest to the cause. On the Long Island Sound, Mr. Floatie sails through the harbor in his motorboat. Everywhere he goes, Mr. Floatie draws a crowd of curious onlookers wondering who this mysterious character is and why he is appearing at their events. He is more than happy to answer your questions. He loves making new friends and sharing his concerns with others who care. We hope and encourage everyone to embrace Mr. Floatie as the true environmentalist he is and we would like everyone to share the experience of helping the environment. So please welcome Mr. Floatie. Invite him to your events. He is here to help preserve one of our most precious resources, the Long Island Sound. For more information about Mr. Floatie and Heal the Harbor log onto http://www.healtheharbor.com. http://healtheharbor.com/gallery/images/floatie/Floatie-in-Rye-011.jpg http://healtheharbor.com/gallery/images/floatie/Floatie-@-The-Rye-Harrison-Game-002.jpg Mr. Floatie Reply Ray – Why can’t you leave innocent kids alone? Do you really think you’re winning converts amongst adults by trying to indoctrinate our young boys and girls? I know it’s hard to believe, but not everything is related to your campaign to have local, county or state government improve your real estate portfolio. If you really wanted to preserve Long Island Sound, you’d be campaigning for the elimination of human habitation on Hen Island. Reply …..”Mr. Floatie likes to appear live at special events around Rye, NY and other Long Island Sound Shore communities”… Ray….Please list the OTHER Long Island Sound communities you’ve visited…. Mike http://www.healtheharbor.com/documents/meyerson'%20response%209-26-07.pdf Reply Scooter, Don’t get your undies in a bunch. You sound a little panicky. Let the teacher make the decision. I don’t really expect her to teach the class about me. However, she may want to send the message to other teachers to point out how you, the mayor and the other city council member’s cover-up environmental, building and health code violations on Hen Island. http://healtheharbor.com/gallery/pages/floatie/floatie1.html Mr. Floatie Reply I doubt any teacher would want to introduce their charges to someone who dresses up in such an outfit – let’s not forget that John Wayne Gacy dressed up like a clown to disarm his victims. Involuntary indoctrination at such a young age is despicable, which is one reason why the teachers won’t be interested. Reply Mike, Here is a picture of Floatie with Mrs. Greenwich at a shore side event. Read her comments at the bottom. She also wasn’t happy about Rye’s inactions. http://healtheharbor.com/gallery/images/floatie/Floatie-@-Greenwich-Dog-Show-012.jpg Why don’t you sign on to our mailing list and you will get all of our appearance dates and events. Here is a few from our Journal news website and a few more from the Rye city council meeting last week. Some of these include my new ass-istant Jack A. http://www.lohud.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?category=PluckPersona&U=6452f71c19894ac2ae3a2b47ed9447b3 The report you posted is the one where they had the Health commissioner Lenny Meyerson is Lying. Here is the one that tells the TRUTH. The one that shows Rye’s building inspector present and in agreement with the county inspector findings. http://healtheharbor.com/correspondence/WestCounty_FOIL.pdf By the way you can find any of the aforementioned and more on our website http://www.HEALtheHARBOR.com . Reply Mike Johnson and Scooter, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUDT-VsHDN4&NR=1 Jack A (Mr. Floatie’s Ass-istant) Reply This was a nice article about children, but Mr. Floatie thinks that it is all about him so he had to ruin it by slinging mud here as well. He bought a shack in a ramshackle shantytown. Hen Island is an ancient, decrepit campsite just like thousands of others in upstate NY. This is not my idea of a vacation home, but to each his own. Now, he wants everyone in the shantytown to change their way of life to suit him. And, he wants it done with taxpayer money, so he tries to scare the public into thinking the place is hazardous. Reply Scooter, Mike,Quincy Dolan, “Thou does protest too much!” Me thinks the turd is right! W Shakespeare Reply Methinks the LADY doth protest too much..Taming of the Shrew. Like most of your arguments This quote makes no sense. Forget you are such a bloody waste Reply There was a man from Hen Isle Who made a creature from Bile Tis a pity its not witty Only shitty and infantile Reply Hysterical, Linus! I didn’t realize your gift! Lemme see if I can post my own limerick – might take a while… Reply The Anomalous Island A little way off from the shoreline Set in Long Island Sound, Lies the kingdom that’s known as Hen Island, To none of our laws is it bound. The City of Rye and the County Have sent their inspectors to see If antediluvian dung pits Flow into the Sound routinely. “Why, nothing is wrong here,” they’ve stated. “There’s no violation!” they’ve cried. But perk tests have proved they’re mistaken – Raw sewage goes out with the tide … Hen Island they’ve termed an anomaly, “It deviates from the norm,” So they can pollute the environment Each day from evening to morn. What then of the gas situation? With propane tanks galore – There could be a humongous explosion But officials prefer to ignore. And hey, there’s no potable water: They use what drains off of the roof. It’s full of e coli and guano – We’ve had it tested for proof. The rusty remains of a boat dock Have sat on the beach for some time. Must someone get grievously hurt here, Before the dock owner is fined? When asked why they won’t clean their act up Folks on Hen Island reply, “We’ve done it this way forever – You can’t make us change, so don’t try.” If you went to Rye Beach or Playland And took away cart-loads of sand, Rye City officials would hunt you down With ticket and summons in hand. But if on Hen Island you wanted To build up your own little plot, “Looks O.K. to us,” they would tell you, “You’re breaking the law, but so what?” Send an e-mail to Rye City And one to the County as well, Tell them to uphold the laws Tell them you’re mad as hell. Reply Here we go, Linus – it’s small potatoes compared to yours, but not bad for short notice: Mr. Floatie is nothing more than a crap-wrapped punk Driving around town in an old battered piece of junk. Won’t it be great when he’s flushed away, Along with the demented wind-bag Ray And their wet dreams of Hen Island sewers are sunk! Reply Ms. B, Please excuse my foul mouth friends. Here is a fable you can read the kids about environmental responsibility. Maybe the kids can teach the mayor and the council the lesson. http://healtheharbor.com/codes/mousefable.html BTW; Linus, Scooter and Bucky are councilmen. Doesn’t that make you proud? Reply Ray, A pathetic fable with a corny ending – “We are all involved in this journey called environmentalism”. Where’d you get that from, Rejected Speeches of Al Gore? And again, what makes you think I’m a councilman? If I were, I’d pass a law against freaks dressing up as excrement. Reply HEY SCOOTER. EVERYONE ON HEN ISLAND PAYS RYE TAXES JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. HOW IS IT FAIR THAT THEY DONT GET THE SAME TREATMENT AS RYE RESIDENTS?? GROW UP. JUST BECAUSE YOU WERENT LUCKY ENOUGH TO GET A SPOT ON HEN ISLAND DOESNT MEAN THAT YOU NEED TO BE SO NASTY. TEACHING KIDS AWARENESS ABOUT HEALTH ISSUES IS IMPORTANT. JUST BECAUSE YOU DONT GET A PERSONAL APPEARANCE FROM MR. FLOATIE DOESNT MEAN THAT YOU HAVE TO HATE WHAT RAY AND HEAL THE HARBOR ARE DOING. GROW UP. WANT TO DESTROY OUR ENVIROMENT?? GO CUT DOWN SOME TREES BUT STOP RUNNING YOUR MOUTH WHEN YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HEN ISLAND IS GOING THROUGH Reply Hey Scooter Hater – Sounds like you’ve been drinking the water that Ray’s carping about. You just don’t get it, do you? I think the answer to the pollution on Hen Island (visual and otherwise) is to shut down the island, close it off to human habitation. Leave it to the birds. What could be more environmentally friendly than that? And by the way, not everyone in Rye is treated the same way – there are plenty of people who don’t have sewer pipes. They have leeching fields and septic tanks. They aren’t out to “destroy the environment”. City, county and state experts have decreed that such facilities are acceptably non-threatening to warrant their use. I will not stop responding to Ray’s ridiculus rantings that numerous city, county and state officials are guilty of some sort of cover-up, that a massive conspiracy is out to get him. Give me – give all of us – a break, won’t you? No one is forcing anyone to live at Hen Islan – if you don’t like it, then don’t visit. Reply Scooter, You are wrong once again. The Crisis team called and told Mr. Schubert if he didn’t agree they would get a court order to enter his home and do the evaluation. Maybe you should talk to Mr. Schubert direct before making statements that are inaccurate. Are Chantal’s statements also a publicity stunt? Reply Ray – please, you’re truly losing it. The crisis team can’t get a court order to enter someone’s home to do an evaluation. Read your Constitution. It’s right there in the Bill of Rights – unreasonable search and seizure. Sometimes we wish they had such powers, to clean the streets from delusional people like you… Reply I am not telling you what the law is. I am telling you what they said to Schubert. Talk about constitutional rights. The guy that should have read them is Shew. Send him a copy. Reply Seems like Scooter knows more than the average Joe. But, Scooter, you arent on the Rye city council?? The city of Rye is wrong and thats that. Mr. Shubert has been fighting a city for 2 years that has been covering up their mistake. So, Scooter, should we board up Mr. Shubert’s property because Rye made a mistake?? Should we kick him out and leave it to the bird’s because of Rye’s cover-up?? Scooter, we need you to stop being so stubborn and help us Rye resident’s fix the lingering problems on Hen Island and fix Mr. Shubert’s property. Tell your fellow council members that you guys messed up and are going to continue making mistakes until you help clean up Hen Island. Ray is fighting for what is right and you are helping with the coverup. IT IS A COVERUP ALL AROUND AND IM SO SICK OF IT. Reply I CAN NOT BELIEVE WHAT I AM WITNESSING!!!! THERE WAS NO HARM IN WHAT RAY DID HERE!! WHAT YOU MAY NOT REALIZE IS – SINCE YOU HAVE DETERMINED THAT MR.FLOATIE IS INAPPROPIATE FOR CHILDREN…… WHAT IS MORE INAPPROPIATE IS THE THREAD YOU HAVE ENGULFED UNDER THE CHILDRENS BLOG! IF YOU HAD ANY CONCERN FOR CHILDREN IN THE LEAST YOU WOULD HAVE LET RAY’S THREAD DIE @ THE END OF HIS LAST PARAGRAPH!!! FYI- I HAVE BEEN TO WATERFRONT EVENTS & WITNESSED MR.FLOATIE IN ACTION & HAVE NEVER WITNESSED ONE NEGATIVE COMMENT!EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO HIS/HER OPINION- YOU SAY ENOUGH ON THE REST OF THE BLOGS ON THIS SITE….MUST YOU INTERACT W/RAY EVERYWHERE?????? Reply You are right ..Ray should be met with silence Reply Linus, There are no spoken words in this clip. I hope you enjoy the music and please pass on the message. http://healtheharbor.com/gallery/thumbs/itsnotfunny.jpg Thanks for all the support, everyone. Unfortunately the mayor and the city council will continue the cover-up until they become the laughing stock of America. Right now we are just the laughing stock of Westchester County. I am truly sorry I am forced to go so far. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I really do love Rye and especially Hen Island. It is such a beautiful community with just a few corrupt individuals. Reply Linus, That is not what I meant & please do not iterpert my words to have a different meaning.I need no help… and would rather my words end with my true identity! THIS IS NOT THE FORUM FOR THIS!!!!! WE ARE NOW INVOLVING THE CHILDERN! LET IT GO! TRY NOT RESPONDING-ALL OF YOU! Reply This was a story about the nice fireman and the kids…….please! Torment each other someplace else. Come on all ready!!!!! Reply Do people have any pride? Dragging kids into this BS means they dont. Does MyRye.com conform any values or does anything go? Reply Confucius says “Beware of property right violations.” Reply Everyone, calm down. I really, really doubt there’s any kids who read MyRye. And if there are, they are certainly not in Kelly Beatty’s class. She’s a great teacher, but most 5 year olds are struggling with “Fun with Dick and Jane”. And that is as it should be. Children should learn basics before being confronted with ethical and moral issues, like the ebbing of our property rights by an intrusive government, for the intended benefit of a few. Plus, by the time they are capable of understanding what is going on here, the youth in Rye are far more interested in texting and twittering each other on who’s dating who and what to watch now that The Girls Next Door is ending. Trust me, they don’t find the whole issue of Hen Island or kindergarten plays all that fascinating. So no one is dragging kids into this forum, and no child is going to be permanently and negatively impacted by the words on this website. Seeing a giant turd stalk them in the corridors of their school, however, is a different story. Reply SCOOTER, WHETHER THE KIDS ARE READING THIS OR NOT IS IRRELEVANT. FIRST OF ALL YOU CAN’T GUARANTEE THAT THEY AREN’T!.SECOND OF ALL WE ALL INTERACT ON THE OTHER STORIES THERE IS NO NEED FOR IT TO TAKE PLACE HERE!!!! WE SHOULD FEEL GUILTY JUST ATTACHING TO A STORY THAT RELATES 100% TO THE CHILDREN. WE ALL NEED TO ACT WITH SOME KIND OF DIGNITY & CLASS! THERE HAVE BEEN 30 POSTS SINCE RAY FIRST POSTED. PRETTY SAD! THERE ARE BOUNDARIES FOR EVERYTHING!!! Reply I can guarantee that the kindergartners are not reading this – because they can’t read! Please let me know if you can’t grasp this logic. I agree with you that we all need to act with dignity and class. Ray started this chain of 30 postings with his obnoxious offer to subject children to a giant rendition of feces. To me, this does not exude dignity and class. Why can’t he stay on subject? Reply WHAT IF THOSE “KINDERGARTNERS” HAVE OLDER SIBLINGS THAT CAN READ??? IS IT OKAY FOR 8 YEAR OLDS TO READ THIS NONSENSE TOO? WE CAN GO BACK & FORTH ALL DAY ON THIS. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT “WE SHOULDN’T”. RAY MAY HAVE STARTED THIS THREAD……. THIS WILL BE MY LAST POSTING HERE…HOPE ALL WILL FOLLOW SUIT….. Reply I did start it. I thought my original post was just a cute way of bring attention to the school community (staff). I am sorry. I have sent an e-mail to Jay sears apologizing and say the same to everyone here including Ms. B and the kids. I am sorry and it will not happen again on my behalf.
