SCOOP: TIMBERLANE CANCELS CHEERLEADING PROGRAM!

Timberlane Athletic Director Angelo Fantasia announced to the girls today, that he was cancelling the cheerleading program, at least for the rest of the season, and possibly for the rest of the year. Mr. Fantasia refused to announce a reason citing "legal reasons", but families of cheerleaders in the program have long had issues with this troubled program. Tales of Senior girls bullying freshman girls. Disengaged, inexperienced coaches, and a general lack of discipline on the team has now come full circle.

Speaking to coaches from surrounding schools they were stunned to hear the news. They stated that they "couldn't imagine that happening at their schools".

The Atkinson Reporter has to wonder what could possibly have caused such a drastic response. Bad coaches can be fired. Bullies on the team can be kicked off, but what can be so bad that the program must be scrapped.

Only time, and parent outrage will tell...

AR2, you should know better. This story doesn't involve Phil so no one gives a damn. Wait, maybe Phil was behind this. Yeah, the cheerleaders were taking donations away from his charitable fund! Damn you Phil!!! It's all your fault Timberlane no longer has cheerleaders!!!

This is Mark's post, he's the only one involved in cheer and always attacking timberlane. He runs the blog cause he has nothing better to do and I makes him feel more important than a carpet cleaner!

Occupy Atkinson organizers: We can take our town back from the greedy political hacks who are morally bankrupt and tax us to death and bully citizens trying to force them to sell out and MOVE OUT.

Make your signs and bring sleeping bags and water bottles. Restrooms in town hall. If denied piss in the lake. State and national news will be watching. It will take two weeks to a month for resignations but only 24 to 48 hours to get others to join our ranks.

The core group is 12 tough taxpayers, registered voters. The APD will not arrest because they are cowards, part time and fear negative exposure and publicity.

We can do this! 12 volunteers and we take our town back. Think about it! It can be done with only a dozen tough people.

OCCUPY ATKINSON NOW!

i cant belive the gossip queens who run this half assed blog actually posted a article like this, its not against the elderly, nothing against the chief of atkinson. and its not full of un truths like we are all used to! What happend Joyce did you have to much "cat-nip" in your coffee today?

Anonymous said...

Hey Phil, why don't you go write out a check from one of your scam accounts and go buy a dictionary?

You cannot write to save your life and slandering honest nice people on the blog is not helping your reputation.

You are helping us to prove that you are inept, corrupt, and basically just a rotten individual who is trying to buy a job in town by getting people to owe you. They owe you for shutting up and hiding their kids criminal activities, for getting them business through your official position as a POLICE OFFICER, getting your family jobs they don't deserve, making elderly women feel endebted to you for giving them perks I PAY FOR.

You are truly a sad, pathetic little man and I cannot wait for you to be fired.

Besides, I have learned today that this story is true, in that light, how is it attacking timberlane to speak the truth?

The MRI report says there are no complaints from the citizens about the APD. Blog administrator!! Remove all of these fake complaints. It may take months of work, but that's your problem.

Anonymous said...

MRI is trumped by the court system. They were fed lies about the lack of complaints. If that is not good enough for you, ask the BOS or the Atty. General.

Anonymous said...

The most interesting statement yet in the report:

Page 9 - Considerable citizen interest exists on the internet regarding the operation of this charitable enterprise.

Enterprise, yup it's a business alright but beyond that is the fact that MRI is reading the BLOG!

Anonymous said...

They would not have pulled the program unless something bad was discovered.

Maybe they can have APD review the facts and say publically that they don't see anything wrong. That's it! Make it go away!

The O'Leary's son in law is clearing common land on Cogswell Farm at the end of Granite Ridge Rd.

Andy Conlan has no ownership rights here. This land was set aside because the project was selling undersized lots to the public. This land was supposed to be used as a common walking path and good luck to anyone trying to get through there now. Very large piles of brush and debris illegaly dumped.

It was part of the zoning approval to have this land left for common use, not for the O'Leary's to be using it for a dumping ground.

Have they taken out a permit to cut?

They don't have a woodstove so where is the wood?

Look what happens when our Board of selectmen puts in unqualified employees who disobey the law. The bos is responsible for what happens to us all

Negligent and sloppy. Their is no law here. Nothing is enforced. Have you no shame?

Anonymous said...

Give the BOS a chance to stop this before you attack them.

Anonymous said...

BOS has a very poor record in defending the rights of home owners and protecting the elderly from scams. They had their chances to fix the problem many times. I am all done with their lies. They are amateurs backing up professional bullies. They are complicit in the harm they allow to fall on the voters of this town over and over and over.

have you had your "cat-nip" today

Anonymous said...

sounds like you had yours.

Maybe the school is afraid of litigation is someone hurts themself during cheering practice or games? If so, you can blame the helicopter parents.

I'm interested in finding out why the program was cancelled. Seems odd that no specific reason was given.

Anonymous said...

They stopped it because they want more money for the program. It's a Consentino RUSE to get your money. They expect the parents and teachers to cause such a ruckus that MONEY WILL COME FLOWING IN so they can reinstitute the program

Just another SCAM from the school system.

Time to drive the scammers OUT OF the SCHOOL SYSTEM.

Contentino people are everywhere.

they sited legal reasons. must be another lawsuit.

all the kings horseman and all the kings men couldnt stop the atkinson reporter 2 from posting more lies again. When will it stop, cant believe you treat the elderly like this. You should all be ashamed.

Anonymous said...

Elderly, Smelderly. BOS should rip Consentino cold dead hands from the town sponsored Taxi Service. Public transportation services should be open to all Atkinson residents just like C.A.R.T. You think the elderly have a monopoly on vulnerability? What about single mothers and young families just starting out? How far do you think $10.00 / hr gets you these days? The ridership should be means tested and tickets costs should be on a sliding scale.

Now, I gotta go feed my cat. DD

Where are the lies from the blog? This article is about Timberlane Cheerleading, what does that have to do with the elderly?

Anonymous said...

its constantly negitive, constantly making up lies and putting down the elderly people of atkinson that the chief so kindly halps out for free. The web site and blog should be brought to justice. They are condoning the haboring of several cats as well.

halps? halps? Are you kidding me?

We should march on town hall and demand a literate chief who does not target women and slander them about non-existent cats.

This town is one to be ashamed of, as well as those in it who steal and vandalize and otherwise ruin it for the rest of us.

Anonymous said...

The Chief doesnt 'halp' anyone for free. The taxpayers pay for the HALP, not him.

MAcciard said...

first of all, the elderly affairs program is not free, you may thank the taxpayers of atkinson for creating it and funding it. You may Thank Carol Grant for establishing it.

And Phil is the Director of elderly affairs. As such it is his job to provide information and services for the elderly in town.

what about the 20k that bennett was going to use to give town employes raises

Anonymous said...

Right. Why?

They should be looking at ways to cut taxes. They should outsource the dispatcher jobs, $45k; no more trustee from the jail, $30k and replace the Chief, $22k.

There, $97k, enough money to buy and FT Chief and save on lawsuits.

Then talk to me about raises.

Anonymous said...

The effects of clearing brush and trees are soil erosion and destroying the natural habitats for birds and animals. Greenery reduces the greehouse effect by absorbing carbon dioxide and preventing it from escaping into the atmosphere.

Did you move here to enjoy the country or do you want to pave everything and kill all that makes the town pretty?

Anonymous said...

cut taxes the bos is spending money like water,why raises we have the lowest paid employees

Anonymous said...

If the town employees help find ways to cuts expenses, I am in favor of raises. It certainly sounds like there's plenty of opportunities to save.

Anonymous said...

Do away with the BOS and let the state run Atkinson.

Anonymous said...

Voters approved the budget and all the projects which were included.
Don't like it? Vote the budget down.....or even better, go to Town Meeting and try to cut it. You might be over-ruled, but people who watch the program just might agree with you and cut warrant articles you consider unnecessary.

And

no raises for the town employees.
What a tragedy! How many people have lost their jobs and have no salary at all. And those on Sociel Security haven't received a raise in two years. (Last one was a whopping 1 percent.)

The employees will live, and I'll bet they're even happy to be working.

Anonymous said...

The only people at the town meeting are the town employees and their families. Going there is a waste of time, not to mention that you cannot stand up without the threat of retaliation and ridicule.

The only way to stop this and get them to reuce costs are to join the budget committee and prepare lots of warrant articles for March.

The 7:47 post is the most cowardly post I've ever seen.

What a lame excuse for not getting off your duff and voting your conscience. If you surrender your rights to others, you deserve everything you get.

PATHETIC !

Anonymous said...

The bully uses the word "coward". The post was right. Town meeting is not town meeting. It is 35 to 50 disgusting town employees and political hacks greedily over-spending money they do not need and took from property owners.

Or maybe you think they earned the 5K they take to splurge on whatever toys, raises, expansions, junk projects they can think up.

One bully was a town moderator who was confronted by a BRAVE taxpayer when he tried to illegally take away his rights. Now the bully gets to watch town meeting only on TV. Enjoy your time as a private citizen.

I know this because I show up.

It's still a waste of time and sitting next to town employees who sneer and ridicule others with screams of BALLS, or LIAR, or NOOOOOOO, is the audible proof of their lack of character.

The town is a disgrace.

Anonymous said...

Whats TWISTED is that the former moderator refused to allow his picture taken at a town meeting, then he secretly recorded the scandalous meeting of the Ethics Committee last year and did not have the BALLS to do it openly.

Thats a coward IMO.

Did I mntion he was with his palsy walsy Chief, the yet-again ACCUSED?

The town meeting should be abolished. It is not real democracy because our good neighbors are afraid to attend. How could that be? It could only be one way. There is a culture of intimidation and game playing with taxpayer money that is revolting.

The moderator and fake town meeting is a con job for hacks to justify fiscal irresponsibility. In this terrible recession the tiny group goes after your wallet like a Lawrence pick pocket on a Friday night.

99 percent of us cannot afford town meeting con jobs any longer or the 1 percent of greedy morons who make wicked bankers look like Saints. We need our own money in our pockets to buy food. This town operates like a corrupt kingdom rather than a democracy. What a corrupt system MUST DO is con and lie and mislead honest people and not enforce laws they don't like and try to silence dissent. And these bums do it in the same room under an American flag with a ministers blessing!

Atkinson Deliberative session is a corrupt system desperate to justify misuse of your tax dollars. Our good honest hard working MORAL neighbors will protest outside town meeting doors.

You all make my case... let's agree that 35 to 50 people dominate Town Meeting.

So what do you do? Whine in the blog? That's a big help. Dredge up Polito's bad behavior of 4 years ago even though he's a nobody today? Why bother?

You want control? It's easy... get those voters who agree with your views to Town Meeting... all you need is 36 to 51.

Run your own slate of candidates.

But the excuse-making just makes you sound helpless and ignorant.
