The Gong Show Comes to Hamburg

The Gong Show Comes to Hamburg Schools staring David Yoviene as Chuck Barris. 

The Hamburg School Board and school community have reached new heights with the side shows that have been performed at the monthly school board meetings.   It seems that certain off kilter parents and a local attorney appear at monthly meetings with antics that recall the 1970's NBC talent show The Gong Show.    The Gong Show featured amateur talents attempting to make it big on network television.  Those seeking fame went to great lengths to 'wow' the audiences, and in most instances those performing to the judges were simply making "jack asses" of themselves;  hence, the Hamburg metaphor.

The humor of the show lies in the absurd performances and the responses that were given by the star-studded panel of judges.  The judges would gong the performer to stop the absurdity and in some cases if the performance was really bad, all the judges would "gang-gong" the performer.   In education parlance, the gong was the 1970s equivalent of an "ineffective" rating.

See Miss Dolly:



It was reported to Concerned Hamburger that the performance of local attorney Mr. Dan Chiacchia during the public comment portion of the February 11, 2014 Hamburg Board meeting was nothing short of "Gong Show" material.   Certain members of the Hamburg Board of Education attempted to "gong" Mr. Chiacchia off the show, but it has been reported his performance continued despite a partial  "gang-gong" by a number of board members.   It was reported that Mr. Chiacchia seemed to be experiencing a performance high as he shanghaied the board meeting after his arrival at approximately 9 p.m..  One wonders why a local attorney with a practice on South Park Avenue would arrive at the board meeting solely for public comments, after having someone else sign him in. Mr. Chiacchia, as a officer of the court, should understand the concepts of parliamentary rules and procedures, and comply with the house rules.  Certainly, attorneys ought to be held to a higher standard of conduct?  February's outburst by Mr. Chiacchia follow his hooligans at the January meeting, which he apologized for at The Hub.

Surely, Mr. Yoviene, you have the mallet for the purpose of keeping order at the Hamburg Board meetings.  The next time the equivalent of a "Miss Dolly" attempts to derail the business of the school board, strike down the mallet and have the amateur- unprofessional- attention seekers removed by the police.

Hamburg Democratic Committee, whose chairman, James Connolly, *also* happens to be the father of this newspaper's managing editor? So, Dan Chiacchias behavior will never be put in the Buffalo News. Chiacchia's conduct is being watch by many other important people who will call him out. He shakes for a reason, and he will be shaking more soon when his gig is up.

Wow, Sally is a pretty good dancer. No wonder Martha hangs out with her.

Michael Johnson said...

Gee, I was thinking that Wendy is a really good dancer, no wonder that Dan and Ed hang out with her. Dan, Ed and Wendy- what a great three some. Cmon Mr. Chiacchia, why you so jealous that people have friends? As the song goes, "coulda been the whiskey, mighta been the gin, coulda been the 3 or 4 six packs he don't know, but look at the shape he is in." There are places where men can find companionship, try the KofC- no doubt Justice (ba hahaha) Fleming will show you the secret handshake.

How about the hang out at
24 Karat gold adult entertainment on Rt 5 the V Pres of the PTSA family ownership. I hear that Dan Chiacchia knows all about it

Perhaps the little fellow had to many head concussions attempting to play Rugby in So. Buffalo. Surely those South Buffalo Irish Lads would take great pleasure knocking a little "fem" like Danny around. Imagine that guy on a Rugby pitch....whoa, too bad those games arent recorded would love to see him take a beating on the pitch.

shakes are usually associated with a pathology of addiction

It also seems that Mr. Chiacchia's behavior extends to the local varsity basketball games. Bullying the coach from the stands at another school's gym just goes to showcase the character of a person. What parent berates your child's coach so loud that the coach had to take a timeout? Really???

I just listened to the Erie One Boces meeting from 10-4-13, Dave Yoviene got bitch slapped by Kathi Battin, a guidence counselor at HHS- its on You Tube. Those Hamburg community meetings sure do stink of lots of people with serious mental issues. Battin is complaining about bullies, ask James Martinez about Mizz Battin and her "folder" on James, and her visits with Administration on James. Thank God for YouTube all 5 community sessions are truly a testiment of the hate some people carry around. Some people have lots to answer for.

Our son is gay and we are supportive and proud of him. Now that being said we came to last nights school board meeting; stories of hate sessions against our gay and lesbian sons and daughters. Labor lawyers leading the group?

Labor Lawyers on South Park Ave.

our friend when she became pregnant and employed at Chacchia's law firm was told that they no longer needed her services.

Problem with someone like that attorney is that we need to remind him that kids were in the audience the other night. We were there with our daughter for her class. Up to that point in the meeting we were proud of what our schools board provides for our kids. That attorney had his own personal agenda and it was not good for kids to be experiencing that behavior.

THE REAL TRAGEDY IS RICK JETTER KNOW HE IS INCOMPETENT BUT HE IS GETTING A VERY FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY BY "SOME" IN THE LEGAL COMMUNITY. HE WILL DO HIMSELF IN IF HE CAN ACTAULLY FOOL HIMSELF INTO THINKING HE IS SUPERINTENDENT MATERIAL. HE HAD PROBLEMS IN KENTON TRYING TO RUN A SCHOOL. RICK IS NOT A POLITICIAN, AND HE IS THE FARTHEST THING FROM BRIGHT. HE WILL LIKELY SCREW HAMBURG, AND THEN LOOK TO OGILVE FOR A NEW JOB. HE CANT LEAN ON STEVE, HE IS OUT OF IT. MOST IN THE SCHOOL COMMUNITIES AROUND HAMBURG ARE LAUGHING AT THE SCHOOL BOARD AND THE PEOPLE THEY PASSED OVER FOR RICK JETTER. THE STAFF IN HAMBURG THINK JETTERS AN ASSHOLE, AND JUST WAIT TO THE LAY OFFS COME IN MARCH- WE KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. BUT THEY WILL GO TO GREAT LENGTHS TO CONTINUE THE SHADEY COVERUP. JETTER IS STUPID IF HE DOESNT THINK THAT PEOPLE ARE ON TO HIM. REALLY STUPID.

Chiacchia claims to be 145 lbs. I find that hard to believe. He looks like around 120 lbs.

Dan Chiacchia,

Do you realize that it is laughable for you to use the board meetings to plug your wife's business? For you to talk about health and fitness is quite ironic. You would be more suitable doing a commercial for the Betty Ford Clinic. I hear you love to pound glasses of wiskey. It seems that you have built quite a tolerance.

FACTS PLEASE HONESTY said...

WHEN OUR WE GETTING THE LAY OFF LIST? PHUCK JETTER AND HIS ENERGY BUS NO WAY WASTING MONEY ON THIS CRAP

LABOR LOSS LARGER CLASSES AND PROGRAM CUTS LETS BE HONEST HERE AND STOP THIS FEELEY BULL

Timm said...

Dear Dave Yoviene,

By the way you are kissing Chiacchia's ace*, it seems like you think it was him that put you on the board. Did he? I could have sworn I saw him outside the polls on May 21, 2013 campaigning with your competition Joan Calkins. Aren't you smart enough to understand that Chiacchia is only associating with you because you won the election? He is not your friend. Do you get that Dave? How do you sleep at night?

Scroll ahead to about 60% of the way through the video.
Watch Dan Chiacchia make an ass of himself.

Mr. Yoviene,

The Harassment that you are allowing at board meetings is something that has never been seen before. You previously allowed biased people to come into executive session and demand that a board member step down. At the last board meeting you allowed LITTLE Danny Chiacchia to repeatedly say a community members name and spew hate about him. You should be removed.

Look at the reality of this matter with Mr. Chiacchia. He is clearly upset because his partner Andrew Flemin g was admonsished by the judicial ethics committee- more too come on that Andy. Dan seems to think he is smart. Well, anyone can see that if you give someone enough rope they hang themselves.... as a metaphor. Dan's behavior is the talk of the Buffalo legal community. If the article in the Buffalo News didnt alert you all to his anger and vengence, then please carry on. I do not live in Hamburg, but I wam watching this. Some people have said that Dan has used his position as an attorney to dig up dirt about about David Yoviene, and some people say there is lots of black mail and extortion going on in Hamburg. Some people are waiting for the noose to get tightened, a metaphor, so that the big fish will be dragged to shore. Hilarious that an attorney who spent time in the DAs office and things he is smart and cozy with the Democrats doesnt realize he is going to get set down the river with out a paddle. Gee those recordings alone might make someone think twice. LOL

Concerned Hamburger, do you realize that Andy Fleming himself turned up at the Hub session, and that his remarks alone are revealing. Does Andy know he is on tape. Hilarious. Those green Fleming for justice signs, should read: Fleming for cover-ups, lies and injustice. A Hamburg Village Judge- perhaps you might like to pay attention to Mr. Violanti in Lackawanna. Good luck with that election.

Hay Mayor Moses, why so hush hush on the elections in the village? Trying to keep it nice and quiet? Good luck with that plan.

Michael Johnson said...

The community meetings are online under a Youtube search. You need to search- Hamburg- the sickest place on earth. I listened to all those meetings. The one at the Presbyterian Church is my personal favorites. There are some very sick people in Hamburg. Some of these meetings rise to the level of hate crimes.

Now let us turn our attention to the Village elections. So it looks like the village doesnt bother to announce the elections- a la a Hamburg secrecy. And wouldnt you know it, Sandra Hutton-former school district crony and Ed Osbourne operative is the election inspector in the village. Well, let us see if perhaps some of the machines break like in the school elections. Time for election inspectors in Hamburg- and wait, isnt the village overlooking posting election info? Guess they are too busy hiring Dan Chiacchia's nephew to collect the garbage. Heck he could do that without going to work.

THis is how a school superintendent signs a stupid email about his kid. He is struggling with an identity. Says he is fond of music. I heard he tell people that he turned down a job with the Buffalo Philharmonic to be a teacher. Really, my contracts at the Philharmonic never heard of the guy. PATHOLOGICAL.

I cant find any community meeting videos

is it a hoax?

Donald Harvish said...

7 pm. I found the community meetings on YouTube. It took me awhile. I tried to cut and paste the link, but I cant figure out how to do that (duh). Sorry. Try searching "Hamburg Schools sickest place on earth ed piazza, strip club pta moms, dan chiacchia, wendy evendon, the hub, the grange, boston, calkins" I put it all on one search- and bingo up they popped. Sorry I can not be of much help here, I listened to those meetings and I warn you at how sick some these people sound. I listened to that Principle Martinez and I am thankful he is no where NEAR my kids. Good luck and keep searching.

Shall we guess who is in siesta key reading the blog at 4 am. Isnt there a bar you should be guzzling your beer at?

Busy Bee Mary said...

So Rick, how did that secret meeting go for you this evening until after 7 pm. Your scheming is caught on tape. Wait til this one goes to the internet. Really, are you that stupid?

Anonymous said...

I cannot believe that the BOE would even consider hiring Rick Jetter as the next superintendent with 2 much more experienced candidates interested in the position. If he is, it will be just like when SA was hired - Shared Decision Making - what's that????
