Dr. John Magnotta, Athletic Director for the City School District of New Rochelle plagiarized a recent article from the New York Times, seeking to pass off an article on weight training as his own.
In the recent issue of "At The Buzzer", a newsletter published by Magnotta, every word published on weight training under his own name was lifted directly from an article by Jane E. Brody, Before You Lift a Weight, Get Some Advice. The article was published by The New York Times on December 13, 2010. The article, on the risks of working out with proper preparation, was actually written by Jane Brody of the New York Times. Magnotta even used the same title for the article in his newsletter.Read more

Last night, at the New Rochelle Board of Education meeting, Vice President Chrisanne Petrone read through a list of draft resolutions to be voted on at the next Board of Education meeting on January 4, 2011. After the entire list was read, board member Lianne Merchant raised a question about a draft resolution regarding Rolf Koehler. Before she could complete her question, Schools Superintendent Richard Organisciak produced a document which he said contained a written statement regarding the resolution.
It was clear from their reaction that not all board members had been informed of the statement, signed by BoE President Sara Richmond along with Organisciak. Richmond was not present for the meeting.
The next morning Talk of the Sound received a statement from City Manager Chuck Strome.Read more
