I see there was yet another problem at Crud's this week. What was it this time? A drug deal gone bad? Someone had to pay up on a bet from Ray Kachman? Or even an inside job??? Who knew they would have over $1000 in that bar? Better yet who even knew that bar made $1000 in a whole week? Its about time to shut that place down like they did with Kacky's. In normal towns the problems start with the drunks. In North Braddock, the problem is the owners and their greed. They allow anything to go on in their community as look as they can make a buck or two.

It probably was someone in debt to them dam Katchmans! Biggest criminals in the Mon Valley. They have thought they we the shit for years. They are nothing but some bookie scum. I was so glad to hear they took the bar away from Ray for not paying his taxes. I thought we would finally get rid of them, but no his cheap ass is still around. Now he rides that dumb ass scooter. Doesn't he know his fat ass is to big for a scooter?

Whats your problem with the Katchman family? What did they ever do to you? Ray is one of the nicest guys around. He would do anything for anyone. You need to stop disrespecting him. Your just mad your broke.

Who asked for your opinion old politician? How long have you been a citizen of North Braddock? Better yet, how long have you been placing bets with the Katchman's? These fake "mobsters" have ruined the town I grew up in and spent over 67 years in. This place use to be nice until they started doing business. It was all down hill from there. The reason the police force is so poor is because these "North Braddock Mobsters" pick and choose who they want to serve the town.(aka themselves) They only keep the ones loyal to the criminal interprize and let the good officers move on. So with a lack luster police force and children of the "Mobsters" on council, it will never get any better. Then you have cronies like yourself that think this is acceptable. Well it's not!!! A crime is a crime. Running an illegal gambling ring is just as much a crime as selling drugs. Because they are white and "help the citizen" (pay offs) everyone turns a blind eye. If they were African, they would be jailed every few days for doing the same things. I can see why Africans are always so upset. Maybe you should pull your head out of Rays ass and realize this is wrong. I didn't serve my country over seas for 4 years to come home and live with all this corruption. Things need to change before its too late.

Old politician is most likely the Fat Ass Chief using one of his many screen names.
He's the REAL problem. Simply because he doesn't know how to enforce any laws. He still thinks it's OK to police like it was done in the 70-80s and nothing has changed other than his compensation.

He useless and worthless and a back stabber. He wouldn't even know where to start and doesn't believe in education. He's living proof !

You've answered the problem. Why would council put an idiot in the Chief of Police position.. So they can control things. The Chief is nothing but a puppet and a moron.

He's proved that already. Just watch his interview on channel 4 for the injured police officer involved in an accident going to a call in Turtle Creek.

The best part of this is they probably spend more time assisting other PD's when they don't answer their own calls and shove them off to other PD's because they say "their busy". He's aTotal INCOMPETENT MORON as is the council !!

Since you offered he will do anything for me..let him answer a question then..why doesnt he pay his drink tax?

"Ray is one of the nicest guys around"..owes 12 months of drink tax to the residents of allegheny county. They took his liquor liscense, because he is a no good business owner. Then "Good old Ray", hides behind the truth..."there is no money in the bar business, thats why i am closing"...keep lying.

Katchmans, hahaha, you must be kidding, they own the police.

Read the county Website, there being legal action against "Ray one of the the nicest guys" for back taxes & abuse of a scooter.

We cleared out of the Braddock in 1962.

Corey Av was a nice place back then.

Kids could always count on prying a few nickels
out of the parking meters downtown with a pocket knife.

The main drag had a few movie houses and ice cream parlor. Steve McQueen was in THE BLOB. The only hope for that area now is the blob.

misc: obviously since you haven't been to North Braddock in awhile. Maybe you should keep your opinions in Ohio. Nothing good ever comes from Ohio. I like how you just attack me, yet have no facts to support your argument. Here are a few facts for you:

There have been many occasions drug deals have gone on in both the old Kacky's(ten graphix) and when he moved under the fire hall. Just because Ray payed off the police to not patrol his block and the 11 o'clock news doesn't show up, doesn't mean that it doesn't happen. Money talks... Though Ray may not have been involved it still took place in his establishment and he was well aware of it.

Speaking of money, the Katchman family has been in the bookie business for well over 50 years. Ray's father started the "business" and opened the original bar with the profits made from book keeping. This is where the federal felony of money laundering occurred. Ray was unable to keep the "family business" going, mostly because he was to flashy and attempted to show off to the pretty girls who only wanted his money, not his fat ass. Thus the "family" had to sell the book to a bar in East Pittsburgh. Ray continued to show his stellar character when he ran the family bar into the ground and refused to pay his taxes, which resulted in him losing his liquor license.

Also, for your information, Ray knows exactly who I am. I have no problem saying this to his fat ass face, and have on a number of occasions. Every time I see him around (places like Giant Eagle or Wall Mart or Monroeville Mall to name a few examples) he puts his double chins between his man titties and waddles his fat ass out of the store. In the case of Wall Mart, with out even purchasing a thing, just leaving a cart full of goods in the middle of an aisle.

Its because of people like Nina and the Katchmans that North Braddock is the ghetto it is today. They want to be mobsters and "run the town". All they have done is run the town into the ground. They chased off all the good police officers to protect their personal interests. Which ran off the businesses and good citizens. Thus, leave only white trash and blacks wanting to live in the dump called North Braddock. Thanks Ray!!!

I cant even talk to you anymore. Im done checking this blog. Anybody Anybody Anybody that thinks that the kachmans ruined NB is just a plain idiot.Braddock shutting down and everyone moving up the hill ruined NB. Kachmans had nothing to do with it at all. It happens to be a good family. Bookies have been around since before time. Hear me forever they have always been around. There is bookies in fox chapel, USC, mount lebanon those towns arent ruined. There is bookies in everytown in the world. That bar never caused any trouble so it surely wasnt the bar that ruined it either. And im sure he paid the cops....GIVE ME A BREAK DUDE. It seems to me like you just have something personal against him and want to take it out on here.When i come back to NB one day Ill be sure to mention to him the guy that seen him in walmart said hello and I heard you ran from him (doubtful, very doubtful)...LATER IDIOT........
