Introducing the watercolors of Timothy Delaney for the cause of the Beacon Line Project

Tim wanted to share his watercolors featuring the Beacon Line with us all with the special caveat that, in his own words:

Guys --

I've attached some of my artwork. All of these watercolors feature the Beacon line. I can output these on good paper with my printer at home and they look pretty darned good.
A possible moneyraiser for our cause?
Tim Delaney
If you would like one of these fine watercolors, suggest a price and send one of us an email.

the joys of the dealing with a griefer


Comment by Bud Siegel on February 17, 2012 at 12:58pm

As always, your comment makes no sense to me, and I don't have a clue about what you talking about -- but, again, I hope my very simple suggestion can help you raise some money for your cause.

Comment by Ben Royce on February 17, 2012 at 12:12pm

Thank you new improved, well behaved person behind various anonymous accounts, for trying to contribute positively rather than griefing us.


I have always told you directly, a number of times, I have posted in unrelated threads, a number of times, and spoken in confidence with other people, a number of times, that you always have something useful and insightful to say. Now that you are also not griefing, maybe you can come out of your carefully sealed shell of anonymity and contribute as your real self.


You obviously care about this small city, which is great. Why you feel the need to lob incendiary comments from hiding has always been the problem. But now that you are no longer attacking, maybe we can take the final step here and you can contribute as your real self too, whoever you are. I hope so. You are very knowledgable and we need your help.

I think it might be easier to raise money for your cause in a more appropriate way.  I suggest you contact BACA or the Dutchess County Community Foundation about providing pass-through services.  That way people who find your project worthy of their support can donate money (or buy prints at over their market value), take a charitable deduction and know with greater confidence that their money is going to the cause and is being accounted for.   Kickstarter might work for your purposes if you have a specific activity with a specific monetary goal in mind.  Good luck with your efforts.  Keep us informed of your progress.

Dear petty anomymous troll with many accounts, the most famous being Charlene Vesuvius:

I encourage you to contact the authorities about this horrible outrage.

I'm not sure what you are saying -- Are you soliciting funds for an organization that doesn't legally exist?  It is a simple question.

Comment by Ben Royce on February 16, 2012 at 3:04pm

LOL. As soon as I posted this I thought "I bet Charlene Vesuvius will show up and complain we don't have legal status." Troll: you are getting predictable.

BTW, I heard some kids were running a lemonade stand on the corner and they didn't have their proper Health Dept Certification.

Get on it CV. This Bernie Madoff level stuff man.

I assume that by soliciting funds, has401 (c) non-profit organization status and that donations are tax deductible. Or you are using another organization to pass-through funds.  In either case, if we buy a print to support your organization financially, how much of that is tax deductible.
