Brian,

Your letter was beautiful and heartfelt. I have lived here in Stephentown for 30 years just down the road from you a bit. I also have spent my career working with troubled youth  and am recently retired. Many of us know what a kind and generous soul you are and are saddened by what you are going thorough, as well as concerned about how so many kids can think this is alright.

I would love to help out with what ever is organized to work on this problem. I am a little skiddish about donating blindly on the internet, but if you email me an address, I can send a small check.

Know that you are loved, and appreciated, Brian.

We, and the kids, will come through this somehow.

My computer would not open the pictures, but you spoke with great wisdom and compassion in the letter, itself.

Please keep me posted as things develop. There must be a way to organize a work party at your house.

        

South Stephetown Rd.

Brian,

Here's a thought: Is there any way that part of the "sentencing" for the kids involved can be community service hours on a work crew to help repair your house? Also perhaps parents can receive a letter suggesting they consider domating to repairs? Perhaps even the kids can be encouraged to brbing along a couple fiends to h elp as well. If these kids work side by side with you, and hear your woisdom, it may be just what yhey need.

Just a thought. I know our legal system doesn't always make this possible, but perhaps the letters

Dear Mr. Holloway,

I cannot believe that people would do this to your home.  I would like to say that I am glad that you created the website to bring attention to the problem.  The teenagers and/or parents should be held accountable for the damages.  I think it is horrible that people think you should just pay for the damages. 

I truly hope that this can be resolved in a manner that is your favor and that the parents of the teens responsible can teach their children right from wrong…It isn’t too late.

Rensselaer County is a beautiful place to live.  This behavior is not typical of our residents.

Sincerely,

I don’t know you and you don’t know me, I live and work in the community where your house was so maliciously vandalized. As a father of two boys in the New Lebanon School district I am appalled and disgusted at the actions of both the teenagers and the response of some of their parents. My heart aches for the loss of your personal items as well as the destruction of your family home. I don’t think you can even ask why, there is no reason for it, a lot of those punks come from decent homes and families. I hope all of your stolen property is found, and I think every person involved should be charged and be responsible for cleaning, repairing, repainting, apologizing etc…  I did some dumb things as a teenager as well as my share of partying, but vandalizing and destroying personal property was never part of having fun or partying. I know some of the parents of the hoodlums who were at the so called party. Trust me the only way these people will learn is to be punished. My children were not a part of the festivities, and I would like to think they would have never been, especially after the vandalizing and destruction of property started. One thing is for sure, If they had been involved, I would have personally marched them to your doorstep after I beat some sense into them. I understand how the mob mentality snowballs in the heat of the moment but, still no excuse for what happened to your home. I am sure of a couple things;  they will never learn their lesson if you do not press charges and hold them accountable, and the social media outlets which they have all been so quick to use, brag on, and post pics of their wild night of partying should be the nail in their defense coffins. Like I have previously stated, we do not know each other. I am a hard working middle class guy trying to raise a family with values and morals. I also live fairly close to your home, having said that, I don’t have a lot of spare money, but I am a licensed master electrician who has an abundance of knowledge and talent with all aspects of building and construction and I will help you in any way that I can. Please call me or email me if there is anything I can help with.  My name is                       I reside in Brainard, N.Y. my email is   Please don’t hesitate to call me.       

Brian and Tammy, I am so sorry this has happened to you!   You’ve opened your homes to so many and provided a positive environment – it’s just a slap in the face that would cause a smaller person to be bitter.

I admire you and want to help.

Brian, if you recall, I lost my son Kent at 18 ½ on September 22, 2003. I’m coming up on 10 years. Very sad.

I left the corporate world in 2009 to work full time for DrugFreeAz.org, the Arizona affiliate of The Partnership at DrugFree.org.  I work in prevention.

My main function is to conduct evidence-based parent workshops. These 6-session workshops delve deep into parenting styles, what works and what doesn’t work, discipline, building courage in kids, helping them accept responsibility, etc.  All the things you talked about in your Save the 300 article. 

I think a three-pronged approach would have the greatest effect.  Kids, Parents and Community Members.

Active Parenting has a FANTASTIC PROGRAM called Active Families.  It consists of evidence-based workshops for both the teens and parents.  Each attends their workshop separately, but they are learning the same principles.

Active Teens and Active Parenting of Teens might be a good solution for this community.  Since they are evidence-based, the court system might be able to “mandate” that parents and the kids attend. 

I’m thinking that it could be done in conjunction with “work-days” to restore your property.  There would be a fee for the workshops and additional restitution to be paid to help cover your losses.

Kick off with an event that they are REQUIRED to attend, you and some of your buddies can give a straight-talk to the attendees.  Dr. Popkin (the author of Active Parenting) would also be available to talk about the program.

I’ve got more ideas.  Interested? 

Mr. Holloway

I sent you email earlier not sure if I entered the right email address. I would like to help in the clean of your home and your endeavor to address the issues with these children. I live in your NY community and have friends in your neighboring Florida community. I have a 15 year old son that attends Columbia..I believe your endeavor to help these children will help many more than those involved. Let the children come together with parents to see the impact of their choices. I can help in almost anyway..organization..clean up..etc. I am not currently working and have a lot of time to spare.

I'm sorry your family has beared the expense of a hard lesson..but I believe most will be restored by your heart and soul to help these children and our community learn from this experience.

My name is

I do hope to hear from you either by phone or email.

Hi Brian,

Not sure if you remember me but I’m                       your old babysitter. (The one with the horses.) I recently heard of the damage done to your Stephentown home, and I’m so sorry. How shocking that so many kids would do this to someone.

Anyway, I wanted to reach out to you and let you know that I still live in the area with my two little boys. If there is anything I can do, please feel free to contact me. My husband is a carpenter and if you need windows or doors boarded up until they can be fixed we could run over to put them up.

I hope things are resolved quickly for you.

Dear Mr.Holloway,

           My name is                       I am                       years old in the 11th grade at                       and I am a high honor roll student, I attended the party hosted at your residence on August 31 2013 for about 20 minutes not consuming alcohol or any drugs. I, along with most of the teenagers attending the party, were under the impression the boy who hosted the party was having an "end of the summer" party at HIS house, that was the story that was being told. The day after the party I was honest with my parents and told them where I was the night before. When I went to school the day after this party was on the news, I was told by a few other girls who were at the party who were listed on the website, that it was being investigated and the rest of the story that was on the news, being how I'm grounded indefinantly without a phone or privledges, I did not see this on the news. When I went home that day, I told my mother and father about how the party, which I went against my parents rules to attend, was trespassing and I contacted the officer investigating the case and I met with him the next day at my house with my parents, I gave a statement about how I heard about the party and that I was there, I also gave the girls name, that I was told by a few of my friends, that took the eagle,which I see has been returned and I am so glad, along with the host of the partys name who I had never met. I gave the officer a rather large list of names of people who possibly might have done damage and tried to help the best I could. I am deeply sorry that this happened to your familys home and I have so much guilt, but I am taking accountability for my actions and although I took absolutely no part in the destruction of your home, I would like to go back to your house and help with some of the damage like painting and other things that I can manage, I do art in my spare time so I will be able to do that for you. I have a                       year old sister and                       and I want to continue to be a good influence on them and show them that for every action there is a reaction. All I can do now is send my deepest regrets for what has happened, that I have taken some part in. I was not listed because I do not have a twitter. You and your family did not deserve anything that has happened, I read your story about how you need shoulder replacements and you should not have to pick up this mess. No one deserves to go through the physical pain you are going through. If you would like to contact me on the phone my home number is

Brian,

I can certainly understand. That's an awfully large number to compile information on. I do hope the parents are reaching out to you.

Anything you need we are here. We have a camp not to far from your home. Lots of tools..have freinds that love to cook..can cook a meal for the TEAM that comes out..

Saw your updates...so thankful the headstone was returned.

Our community should be so thankful that you care enough about this community and the children to handle things the way you are...I truely believe it will teach them more and help them think before they make a decision.

Enjoy your Sunday :-)

Mr. Holloway, I've seen the televised reports of what happened at your

Our newspaper, the Chatham Courier, serves the New

Lebanon/Chatham/Austerlitz area, and I see that you feel that New Leb.

kids were involved. I'd like to tell the story                      .

I'd also like to help those kids:                      

was trying to get some sort of volunteer recreation program going--and

apparently it just died for lack of "parental involvement."

I work from home (and right now my telephone isn't working--BLESS

to make your point in our paper.

Have you heard from any of them? Did you get your eagle back? Would you

be willing/able to speak at one or more of the schools (I haven't asked

permission, but I'm sure                      , would be

receptive.)

Maybe--just maybe--I can help you to reach even one kid (far, far too

late for my own son.)

Hi Sir, I'm very sorry to hear about all the horrible things that went on in you your house. I wanted to message you because I know one of the girls in one of the pictures on your site. This girl is a sixteen year old junior, her name is                      . She goes to taconic high school in Pittsfield. I hope you find more people who were involved and I hope this helps. The people who did this should be taught a lesson for the pain they have caused you. I'd like to remain anonymous but I'd like to help more if you have any questions you can email me back here

Dear Mr Holloway,

I am a 48 year old mom  sitting in my kitchen in Watervliet, NY with my two  teenage girls ages 18&15  eating our lunch. We are discussing this horrible incident. My girls and I are appalled  at the audacity of these kids. Unfortunately, I know of one the girls, as my girls know of a few of the young ladies as well as the young men in the pictures below.

I was a single mother for 13 years. I decided that my marriage dissolving, was not my choice but, certainly not my girls either. With that said, I made choice to keep the focus on my children. I instilled morals, values and consequences in our everyday life. I rarely ever put a hand on my girls( I too came from a background of being hit with whatever was in my mothers or fathers hand range) So i get it. I chose a different route of discipline. I learned that the "disappointed look" was enough for my girls. It has paid off BIG! I have two amazing girls with solid morals and values.  The girls would never ever dream of destroying anything. Let alone someone else's property.  It is not in their makeup or on their moral compass .

My girls and I have struggled financially through those early years. I taught them both to appreciate what we have. To see the silver lining in every cloud. I told them many times we have what we need, not always what we want. With all of this said, they have learned that hard work and perseverance is what we strive for  and the rest will fall into place.

As we look at the destruction to your home, we sit in disbelief. Some of these kids in the pictures have been afforded many more luxuries then my girls. It just blows our minds. I don't wonder where the entitlement that the kids feel, came from. I am ashamed for them and their families. The thought process is unimaginable. I hope you decide to prosecute each and everyone of these kids.

I wish you nothing but, peace of mind. You have worked hard for all of you have and deserve to relish in the fruits of your labor.

Please remember that not all teenagers are looking at this destruction as bragging rights.

Your in our thoughts and prayers,

First photo of party goers ( 3 girls )

The one pictures first with short hair wearing blue sweatshirt is                      

I had the opportunity to view the list if names and one was listed as                       Sountain "correct spelling of  her name is                       .

It truly saddens me to see these kids as I know many of them listed and seen in the photos and I am thankful we live in Texas ( recently moved from the Ny area ) where my daughter used to be friends with many if the girls listed and we actually moved from the                       school  district because some of these girls bullied my daughter so much we were forced to try a different school for her safety ( Shaker high ) , which turned out to be much better than the Troy school . I also know many of the parents and its a shame they feel defending their children is the right thing to do rather than help them face the consequence of what they have done , I am truly sorry they did this to your home and the children should be made aware of what happens when bad choices are made because these children are our future and if that's what I have to look forward too then this world is going to be a very sad place . 300 children is a VERY large number and they should ALL be embarrassed over this , the reality is " they are not" . One girl texted my daughter saying omg I'm grounded forever YET she has the electronic ability to send my daughter this message , grounded for life to your room with every electronic device you can muster up to continue tweeting and face booking about " the best night of your life " and that it was all worth it . Whatever you decide to do in regards to pressing charges is your decision and your decision alone , should be respected regardless however my opinion is " these children need a slap in the face with reality " and I'm not talking about " the Kardashians" .

Good luck and our prayers are with you all !

Hello Mr. Holloway,

I was looking at your website today and am pretty sure I recognize on of the girls in the Twitter feed.  I am so sorry that these kids destroyed your home like that. 

I first want to say that this is hard for me to do, but feel it is the right thing.  Her last name is                      .  She attended (last I knew)                      .  If I can have some contact back with verification that my name will NOT be used, I will give you some more information to locate her.  Again, she is the daughter of a long time family friend and my name CAN not be used.

Thank you,

Alrighty, again, if there is any way I can help you at all I will go whatever I can!

Brian, 

          I am very sorry for what has happened to your home, it brings such a blemish on all of society. I think your response is much needed to allow some sort of repercussions and responsibility to those involved. It seems many young people lack respect and consideration, I hope what you are doing will make a difference in their lives. With that being said I showed your site to my girlfriend and she is able to ID some of the kids from pictures/ twitter screen grabs. Would you like their names and possibly some information about these kids? 

Regards, 

        

Mr. Holloway:

I was shocked to hear about this and since my daughter goes to                       HS it caught my attention. I am a lucky Mom though! My daughter is 17 and doesn’t smoke, drink or do drugs!  She stopped hanging out with her “friends” because they all started drinking all the time and she just didn’t want to get involved. I applaud her since I was not like her when I was young. Although I partied, I never thought about damaging someone’s property! This is just crazy!

Anyway as I was scrolling down your page, I noticed this girl on there who used be my daughter’s “friend”. Well they are still friends but my daughter doesn’t really associate with her outside of school.                                                                   as well as another girl who I believe was at the party although I have not seen nor could find any list of names.

I realize you want to help these kids but I am just appalled that these two girls represent their team                      . They are no role models. But of course it is all about politics even in high school. Who is who in high school? Whose parent is on the PTA, the Sports Booster club, etc?  Well I am not but at least one of these girls                       Mom is. I just wonder what her Mom is doing while her daughter is out partying all the time.  Nothing against her Mom but the point is these kids parents need to take responsibility and monitor their kid’s whereabouts. I know I know where my daughter goes. She stays home a lot because she doesn’t want to get involved in all of this partying. She gets good grades, helps me around the house and she really is just a great kid! I am lucky!

That being said, I hope these kids are held responsible for their actions and are made to make restitution for what they did! They should not be                       and not be given new cars, etc. My daughter would love to have a new car but as a single mom, I can never afford that. She will get a job after                       is done (she is a senior this year) and she will buy her own car!  This is the way it should be!  I of course will help her in any way, after all she deserves it!

Good luck Mr. Holloway and I hope this all works out for you!

Hello Brian,

My name is                      . You and I have never met though I did stop by your place a couple times when I first got started about 10 years ago, met your daughter, met your wife when she was up here within the last year or two.

I really like how you are handling the situation at your home. First, let me say I am very sorry that you and your family have been treated in this way. I've never heard anything but good things about you and respect for you from members of the community here. What you are doing with http://parents.helpmesave300.com/ fits with what I have been told about your character.

You asked on your webpage for help with the technology side. I don't have much advice to offer beyond what you've done so far. But I do have this... social media (twitter, facebook) is designed for people to network easily, quickly and widely. The kids used it to brag about their "coolness" (stupidity) far and wide. Responsible adults can use it to expand what you are doing far and wide to help identify these kids.

I am fairly active on facebook. I have a twitter account, have used it some, but don't really use it much at all. However, I have just posted messages with links to your webpage on both.                       I will send an email with the link to my Stephentown email list shortly asking people to forward it along and help you identify these kids. This is my suggestion to you... use your network of contacts here to get responsible adults to do the same. Have your kids do so as well. If you have a facebook or twitter account (or hashtag - #518 maybe? Did the kids use a particular hashtag?) you are using for this please let me know and I'll make sure to include it. I will continue to post about this on both periodically.

Good Luck!

Peace,

Andrew

Mr.  Holloway.  I read the “help me save 300” link and am disgusted by what I read.  I am so sorry you and your family had to endure this.  You are clearly a better man than me, since I would be looking to string these young adults up.   

I am on the                       School board.  If you want to reach out to the superintendent (who is a good man), let me know, I will gladly be a conduit. 

My wife and I will be making a donation at some time.  Regards,                      

Mr. Holloway,

My name is                       and I've been reading about what happened to your house and also feel bad for the kids because they are indeed going down a horrible path that may not end up well for some of them. For some reason, as I was reading everything youve posted about this, I felt compelled to email you and ask if there is anything I can do in terms of helping repair damage. If it still needs to be cleaned up or anything like that, please feel free to let me know how I can help. Im currently a student and work full time so I dont have alot of money floating around or else id make a donation-but if theres any other way I can help please let me know. Take care, and I think what you're doing is 100% right.

God Bless,

Brian, 

          I am very sorry for what has happened to your home, it brings such a blemish on all of society. I think your response is much needed to allow some sort of repercussions and responsibility to those involved. It seems many young people lack respect and consideration, I hope what you are doing will make a difference in their lives. With that being said I showed your site(parents.helpmesave300.com) to my girlfriend and she is able to ID some of the kids from pictures/ twitter screen grabs. Would you like their names and possibly some information about these kids? 

Regards, 

Jim


Hello! My names                      .I'm messaging you about that party that vandalized your home. My name was in the list and I just want to get it confirmed that I wasn't at that party. I was with my boyfriend at that movies that night, but I had asked a friend if there was anything going on that night on a social media, but we ended up going to the movies instead because we had to get up early to meet my parents for a prior commitment. I do know people that were there though. Im very sorry for the damage done to your house. If there's anyway I can help, let me know...thank you for your time

Good Morning,

I’m Jess Sims, I’m the Producer for the FLY MorningRush on FLY 92.3 with Brian & Chrissy. FLY 92.3 is a Top 40 radio station based out of Latham , NY in Albany County . We heard about your story through a listener email and just want to say that we feel for your situation.

We were wondering if you would at all be interested in talking to Brian & Chrissy this morning at either 7:05AM or 8:05AM about what’s going on. Since we’re not a news-based station, our goal is more to make people aware of what’s going on instead of trying to unearth any more names though we understand your intentions. In terms of the website, because there are mention of minors we may have to shy away from that being the focus and focus more on what they did and give us a first-hand explanation of the condition of everything.

Brian would get into further detail with you if you’re available this morning. Hope to hear from you!

Jess Sims

I just messaged that girl asking if she had it still or knew who did. And that if she gave it to me to turn it I wouldn't give her name. So I will reply with what she tells me as soon as she answers.

Hi Mr.Holloway,

I just want to say I'm very sorry about what had happened. I heard on the news tonight. I live in                       which is where quite a few of those who attended the party had went. I made a status basically telling them all I was disgusted with them. A bunch of people commented and I had been told by two people that this girl had taken the Eagle. I believe it because someone said they saw her in a picture with it. Her name is                      . She graduated from                                             this past June. She's short, skinny, and usually wears glasses. Idk how you would take care of any of this. But maybe getting ahold of                       police department? I'm not sure. But I just wanted to let you know that's what two people had told me and there was proof she was in a picture with it I guess. Again I'm really sorry, and I hope this helps somehow.

Sincerely,

I'd rather my name not be released but I've read up on the story you have posted and I'm completely sickened. I've done some research and found a couple more people to add onto the list as well as a photo to provide for you

hello Brian my name is                       and i first off want to say I'm sorry for the damage that happened to your house (I WAS NOT THERE) I'm just saying but what I am emailing you about is to help you find the kids that were responsible for the damage to your home.  I can provide you with schools, names, address and phone numbers if you would like.

                                                                    Warm regards,

I only recently heard of the atrocity that happened at your Stephentown home. This is an area where we never needed to worry about locking our doors. I saw your website and I hear the parents are enraged that their "angels" names have been posted. All I have to say is Too Bad!!!!  I believe that you have an obligation to press charges on each of these kids. Otherwise they will never learn that their actions have consequences. I work for the Department of Labor. I speak to young people all the time and one thing is consistent, NOTHING IS EVER THEIR FAULT.  We all need to feel safe. Make these kids realize that their actions have consequence's. The parents aren't going to do it. If you want to truly help these kids, don't let them get away with what they have done.

Thanks for listening,

I am utterly disappointed from the lack of respect these teens had for your property. It is a crime and I hope it will be handled diligently and to your satisfaction. I read the article from a friends facebook page and shared it on my page to help get the story out there.  We as a community need to stand together and help one another!! Especially when kids are involved.  When talk started this evening about your vandalized property/home, I went to my page again to read over the list of names; since I was showing another person 3 names that are students at Watervliet High School.  It was then I noticed the list was not in the article posted.  Did something happen with it and if not how could we see the list again?  I understand you're working on a process of elimination and I wanted to help out.  I believe people should be held accountable for their actions.  

Mr. Holloway, I applaud you for your integrity, honesty and most of all looking toward making the world a better place.  We as a community need to find positive ways to teach and instill self-awareness and moral values to our children.

Hi Brian I have been following the news of what these kids did to your house and I am truly sorry for what they have done to your property. I am a local business owner in Bennington Vermont  so I live some what close to Stephtown. I'm not sure if there is anything I can do to help you but if you might need something you think I could help you with please by all means shoot me an email. My parents recently retired and moved to Florida as my father has a bad back and the weather down there helps with the pain. I'm not sure of you situation at your house up here, before my parents sold there house up here we went to radio shack and got a color camera that will send you a picture or video as soon as it senses any movement . I actually just put one in my house it only take about 5min to set up and it was the best $90 I ever spent. I know that doesn't solve the problem you have now. I really hope you get everything back that was taken from you and please let me know if I can help in anyway.

Hey Brian, 

Its                      . I was at the party but i got there almost about 10 minutes before the cops showed up and I was under the impression that                       was going to be there. I looked and asked around for him but then after leaving because of the cops showing up, I found out that he wasn't there. For the time that I was there, I respected place like I have before at all the other parties of                      . I'm sorry about all of the damage that was caused and property that was stolen; especially about the eagle statue. If you need any help with cleaning up and repairing what was damaged just let me know, my services are offered. 

Sincerely, 

Justin Jewett 

The                       you had on the list was not my brother...you should get either pics of these kids up or middle names...some people have the same first and last name. I did some research and there was a                       at that party, not my brother of course but someone else, sorry my mistake. I am really sorry for the damage done to your house. I hope everything goes well for you. Again I am sorry fir the inconvionios and my sympthys go out to you and your family. Good luck on your house. I wish I could help.

Hello,

I was recently on your website looking at the list of names of the people that broke into your home. First of all, I just want to say that I am so sorry, and I hope that all of the damage gets fixed and you get the memorial statue for your grandson back. But I also want to say that in the first picture under the list are 3 people that I recognize from my class. The boy in the striped shirt's name is Robert "Bob' Bogan, the girl with blonde hair is                      , and the red headed boy in the blue shirt is                      . They all go to                       High School, and they are all seniors.

I did not recognize anybody else.

I hope this helps, and again I am very sorry for the destruction to your home.

Hello Brian-

You do not know me but I think you are doing an excellent job of handling the situation you had thrown upon you. I just heard on the news that some of these kids parents are actually considering legal action! Are you kidding me...where is the parenting? Teach the child that they did wrong, stand up and take responsibility, and face the consequences. The kids are in the wrong of course but what does this say for the parents. I will donate to the helpmesave300, but I will give more to your legal issues should any arise. This world is so different from when I was a kid and I am only 43. I thank my parents for how they raised me because to take a look at these kids and some parents reaction is just disgusting. Please keep your head high as you are but demand community service to teach these kids at bare minimum. There is no discipline anymore and the work ethic is poor as well. Kids grow up expecting a cell phone, ipad and the world given to them...thus parents not having there kids not take responsibility. The kids are in the wrong...but what does this say about the parents. I have a 14 year-old and a 3 year-old. those kids will rue the day if they ever did anything like this. respect others as you want to be treated. Anyway think the world of you and how you are handling this...I know I could not handle it as well. All the best...

Hi Brian,

    My name is                      ,   I am a parent of a child that is on that list you put up. I recently heard today she was on it

I was going to go to the police myself because my daughter was not at the party, and is upset her name is on it, as she plays sports and has a recruiter she works with. The night of the party my older daughter, her sister had showed me tweets that my youngest daughter                       had the intention of going. I immediately contacted her and told her there is no way she is going to that party.  She ended up going to lake George for the night with a family friend and after words went her friends house for a fire.  Like I said she did have plans on going so I attached two tweets here from her one from august 31st saying she wishes she was going and one from the next day explaining she wished she had went.  If you could please take her name off the list I would appreciate it.  I'm sorry for what happened to your house and I want you to know my daughter wasn't apart of it and is better than that.  I would never allow my daughter to do something like that which I why when I found out she had plans on going I immediately told her no and had my eye on her the rest of the night. I'm sending this and after I will send an email with her tweets that she wasn't there. sorry again for what happened and what your going through.  Any questions please email me back.

                                                                                                                    Thanks again,

                                                                                                                                                         

he afternoons are better for me, I will be available tmrw morning from 9-11am though

Hey I hope u catch all these unlawful kids

Hi Brian,

As painful as it is to see the damage of your house, it is even worse to see that these people just don't care and still find it funny.

I would name the kid's parents and put up their pictures as well. I live in Stillwater, NY and will support you however I can. As a father it sickens me that these parents would contact a lawyer vs. march their kid to you t apologize and make it right. Why haven't the police made arrests?? There were cars left there and more than enough evidence. I know you aren't sure about pressing charges however my personal belief is that these kids don't have consequences, and unless they get a wake up call will end up really hurting someone.

Regards,

Steven Conklin

Mr. Holloway, my name is                       and I attended the party that night. I had no idea the house was broken into and had I known that I would have never attended. I was told the child of the owner was throwing the party while his family was away. I am truly sorry for the horrible things that happened to your home. I would also like to let you know that I didn't damage anything nor steal anything. I would never even think about doing anything like that. I'm a honor roll student who plays 3 sports and I know I should have never of gone to a party in the first place. I didn't drink that night either. I really am a good kid but I made a mistake that I will regret for the rest of my life and I am so sorry for doing what I did, and I know no apology will make what happened that night any better but I am sorry. I wanted to ask you if my name could be taken off that list because I'll be applying to colleges next month and I had hopes of going to a good school and I don't want this to effect that, even though I know I deserve that consequence. I don't want this to ruin my entire future. I will cooperate with you in whatever you need, my number is

If there is anything we can do to further assist you, please do not hesitate to ask.

In my own experiences, keep on the police department handling the case as well. They are often over burdened and over worked, the more time that lapses, the more these kids will delete there messages and cover there tracks.

Also, if you haven't already take any photos you have collected to these local schools. There are many teenagers out there as well as teachers that can identify an outfit (hence the one with the eagle) and pin point an individual. They like myself are mandatory reporters and have an obligation to assist to a small extent.

My prayers and thoughts are with you.

Warmest and respectfully,

Mr. Holloway, 

My name is                       and I'm a junior at                      . Word travels fast these days and through the people I know I heard about what happened and your website. Most specifically, your list and who's on it. What happened is gross and disturbing and I wanted to offer you a little extra justification for what you're doing. 

http://www.news10.com/story/15059104/4th-arrest-made-in-troy-gang-assault

http://troy.wnyt.com/news/crime/87689-teens-plead-guilty-connection-troy-cemetery-assaults

I was the victim of a violent gang assault that left me with very serious injuries. One of the people directly involved is also number 20 on your list, Stephan Grinage. He avoided jail time for reasons ill never be able to understand and all said and done has faced nearly no serious punishment because of a judge believing in second, third and fourth chances. I went to a very illegal party, much like the one your website is about, with the sole intention to pick up three friends of mine and bring them home because they needed a ride away from the bad situation they put themselves in. When I got there your Number 20 didn't like that I was taking girls away from his party and well the rest can be found in the articles if you're at all interested. 

The point is..

What your doing is great. I was the victim of a party like this turned violent and would love nothing more to see punishment handed down, especially for number 20. 

Sorry to bother you, I just felt as if you should know the type of people that your dealing with and how your efforts are worthwhile for more reasons then you realize.                      

I have no money to donate to your cause, but I am more than willing to donate my time and my hands to help you out in a time of need. What these people did sickens me, and if anything needs to be done around your house, like if you were getting a few people to get together and help fix your home, you let me know. My personal cell phone is                       feel free to call/text me or send me an email back.

Best regards

-Nick

Ohkay well I'm hoping for it to be down by today.

Mr. Holloway,

I just saw your "Help Me Save 300" on facebook.  I am deeply sorry and saddened by this horrendous event.   Although we are not able to donate money at this time, my husband and I, and our four children, would be happy to come help with the clean up and repairs.  

Sincerely,

Hello Mr.Holloway,

My name is                        I learned about the events that happened to your house through Facebook a couple of days ago. I was raised in New Lebanon so this struck me pretty hard. I was not in anyway involved in this party, but I am outraged to know that someone would disrespect someone's property in the manner they did to yours. Along with making a donation, if there is anything that you would like me to help you with please e-mail me and let me know, I would be more than willing to assist in clean up/ repairing. Again, I am extremely sorry to hear about this event, and I truly hope that you get your belongings back along with some sort of apology from everyone that was there that night.

        Best wishes,

Hello Mr. Holloway, I would like to start out by saying I am deeply sorry for the theft and act of vandalism that were committed on your home. I saw my name on your list and I would like to help you in any way possible. You, your wife has opened up your home to me in the past and even fed me. I really enjoyed listening to your stories and since I'm an athlete, I think the fact that you would take the time to tell them to me is amazing and inspiring. Your wife and yourself were nothing short of warm and welcoming to me and I really do appreciate that. I'm working or in class most of the time but I'm constantly checking my emails so please email me back.

Mr. Holloway, I contacted you last trying to help and I am still trying. But I really need your help also. I made it aware to you that because of your 300 website I have been receiving nasty call and messages about the situation. This is all because of my name and one screen shot being on there.

I have a documented history of anxiety disorder and almost missed my senior year of high school because of it.

I'm telling you this because the harassment I have been receiving because of your sight is giving me problems with my anxiety and it's only a matter of time before that starts to affect my college work and my job. I'm asking you to please help me with this Mr. Holloway.

Hi Brian, 
  I am writing to you because I heard what happened to your family's  home and it makes me sick! I want to apologize for what those kids did. Mainly because I saw a few names I knew, and was shocked. I was reading what you wrote, and I was trying to choke back the tears. We have lost too many kids in our small community do to drugs and alcohol. I am no saint, I have a past, but I am trying to turn my life around, and hope these kids do the same. This world is crazy enough without them/us making it crazier. I don't know how much I can help, I don't have a lot of money, but I really hope I can do something to get your home back to what you remember it as, and maybe even some of these kids back on the right track. I saw that you are having trouble cleaning on your own, I don't know the damage, but I live close and might be able to help, if need be! I really hope your home gets fixed up! This is all so sickening to me.                      

Dear Brian, I am a native of upstate NY, and I am truly sorry for what these children did. I was going to tell you that you should add                       school to the list because both                       ( whose mother is running for city council ) and                       are from there I went to school with them.

I just seen a post on facebook from a friend when I opened if and started reading I notice                       my sons name on this list and I am upset cause he was camping with us for the weekend.... how are these names post                       without confirmation if these kids we actually there. Kids tend to post things and tag people without them actually being at the place they say cause they want them to show up. As a mom I am upset.  I am sorry for what you and your family are enduring. It is awful....I plan to speak with my Son and get any information to help with who and why. But he was camping and I also see his name on the list twice.

Hi Brian,

Eric here. I'm a 23 year old farm boy who grew up about an hour North of the home in which those kids partied. To be clear, I was not one of them. If I were, I would own it. I came to be informed of what happened to your house through a site called "Reddit." Many say Reddit is the front page of the internet, where everything comes together. (If you're interested, here's a link to the post: http://www.reddit.com/r/news/comments/1mbec2/upstate_ny_300_highschool_students_break_into/

Anyway, it lead me to your website that you made following this event. I'm impressed by your composure after all of this. Impressed by your thoughts, actions, etc. It bothers me that kids have done this. What hope I have is that they are young, naive, and at extremely experimental stages of their lives. Hopefully they will learn to be more mature, respectful, and many other attributes which lead to being a more ethical human being. Maybe it will even be through the repercussions / taking responsibility through their actions of this event. Anyway, what it comes down to is that there are people willing to do malevolent things in life, and others willing to do benevolent things. I am the later. If it would be beneficial to you, I would like to volunteer a few days of my time helping you clean, repaint, sand, polish, or whatever other kind of help you need fixing the house. Let me know what you think.

Respectfully,

-      Eric

-       

-      Mr.  Holloway.  I read the “help me save 300” link and am disgusted by what I read.  I am so sorry you and your family had to endure this.  You are clearly a better man than me, since I would be looking to string these young adults up.   

-       

-      I am on the                       School board.  If you want to reach out to the superintendent (who is a good man), let me know, I will gladly be a conduit. 

-       

-      My wife and I will be making a donation at some time.                       

-      

-      

-     Mr. Holloway,

-      

-     My name is Sarah and I've been reading about what happened to your house and also feel bad for the kids because they are indeed going down a horrible path that may not end up well for some of them. For some reason, as I was reading everything youve posted about this, I felt compelled to email you and ask if there is anything I can do in terms of helping repair damage. If it still needs to be cleaned up or anything like that, please feel free to let me know how I can help. Im currently a student and work full time so I dont have alot of money floating around or else id make a donation-but if theres any other way I can help please let me know. Take care, and I think what you're doing is 100% right.

-      

-     God Bless,

-      

-      Sarah H.

-      i was notified by some of my friends that my name is on the list of students that destroyed your Stephen town home. my name is                       and i am number 29 on the list and i was accused of being there due to my tweet that i had a "crazzyy ass night". I understand why i would be accused but i would like to attempt to clarify with you that i was not there. my tweet was about being with my friends that night, i'm truly sorry that this happened to your home and your valuable items were stolen but i could never do anything like this to someones home. i would appreciate it if you could remove my name from the list and if there is anything i can do i am willing to help.

-       

-       

-      sincerely,

-      Good morning Brian,

-       

-      I'm a member of the                       show on WGNA 107.7, Albany, and we were checking out your website this morning.  We are really shocked and saddened by your story.  We're reaching out to see if you'd like to talk to us about the incident or the website.  Please let me know if you'd like some time on the show and I'll give you our hotline number.

  I am so sorry to hear and read of the damage to your home and things that are missing, especially your statue. This makes me sick to my stomach. I'm sorry, I don't know any of the kids that are named but I wish I did.

  We live in N Petersburg (30 mins north) and my husband's sister lives in Stephentown. (MacVeighs) All three of her boys went to                      . THEY were brought up as my children were, you don't go on or into any ones home without an invite!! They were brought up knowing right from wrong. What the hell we're these kids problems?? Mommy and Daddy spoiled them too much? Looking at these pics, I just don't understand these parents, didn't they have a clue were they all were that night? I'm not sure we're your home is but didn't anyone see all the cars going up/into it? Someone knew. Someone started it, someone bought booze, someone's mother got drunk with them?? Really??

  Anyways, I'm ranting and getting away from my reason to post.  I hope you get more names..I hope these kids parents pay for the damages that they did. Take responsibility for being stupid and thinking they can get away with it cause you know they will be looking for another place. I hope after these kids parents pay for the damages, that these kids are made to fix your home back to the way it was before you left! Take away there licenses until paid. Let them know that they will not be able to do this again!

  Any how, we could throw you a couple of bucks but that would only take away from the ones that need to repay for it doing the damage. However, if you need man hours to painting, construction, etc... please do not hesitate to let us know. We can gather a group and be there when needed. Someday we'd like to spend wintering in Fla but with things like this, why go and worry..stay positive, don't give up.

  Thoughts and prayers,

                       

          Hello Mr. Holloway. I've had an extremely guilty conscience since the night of the party. I was there, I'm sure you saw pictures of me. I need to come clean and get it off my chest. That was the first party I've ever been to and to think I let my BEST FRIENDS talk me into going. Yeah, it was cool at first but once 100+ kids started showing up I got nervous and was on the urge of having anxiety attack on anxiety attack. I was only there for about an hour and a half. I got dropped off by my friends, friend and called my friends sister a half hour later to come get us because I started to breathe funny and got light headed because i was so nervous. The cops showed up right as her sister got there. Now, in my defense and other of my classmates/friends, we didn't realize that this house was broken into. We were all led to believe that the host,                       was the owner. Now seeing that it wasn't true I feel extremely terrible. I know I can get into serious trouble because of this and I don't know how many other students have come clean yet, but you have evidence of plenty of us being there. I can give you more names if you'd like. Not that I want to be THAT girl and rat everyone out but It's not only for the safety of us but those around us. I'm a junior in high-school, so i'm starting to get looked at and applying to colleges and I really don't wanna mess my future up because of this stupid night. If there were such thing as a time machine, trust me, i'd go back and change my mind about attending it. I'm a very intelligent student and I'm BEGGING you not to do anything in your power to screw up our futures but to help those who need their eyes opened a bit. That is the first and last party I will ever attend and I mark my word. 

                    Again, i am extremely sorry for all the damage we have done to you, your house and your family. 

Hi my name is                       I am 20yrs old and I did not attend this party. My twitter is danielle021712 . I am friends with and do know some of the people that attended. I am so sorry very sorry about your home. I can only imagine how you feel. If there is anything I can do I want it to be me helping you figure out who destroyed and stole from your home. Again I am sorry.

Your very welcome

If there is any way that my bbq business can help you out you have my information. Reach out to us anytime

My name is levi Borghi and my father                       and i own and operate Lakota bar-b-q. I was reading this article and i feel rather bad about what happened to you and your family. So i called my father and i proposed an idea to him about doing a fundraiser for you and your family to help pay for the expenses to fix your house.

We have a website                       if your are interested you could send us an email at our website or you could contact me                       This is my cell so feel free to call or text.

I will for sure take another look at the list and let you know of any names not on their that I think should be. Before I promote and share the website, I would appreciate and like to ask you if you could take my name and the screen shots of my twitter off of the website. I know it wasn't your intentions, but I have people saying very nasty things to me on facebook because of my name and screen shot being on that website. I realize you did this to help, to encourage people to do what's right, and to get to the bottom of things and I fully respect that. I just don't believe I deserve the backlash I am personally receiving for this. Thank you for your time Mr. Holloway.

Brian, 

          I am very sorry for what has happened to your home, it brings such a blemish on all of society. I think your response is much needed to allow some sort of repercussions and responsibility to those involved. It seems many young people lack respect and consideration, I hope what you are doing will make a difference in their lives. With that being said I showed your site(parents.helpmesave300.com) to my girlfriend and she is able to ID some of the kids from pictures/ twitter screen grabs. Would you like their names and possibly some information about these kids? 

Regards, 

Jim


Hello! My names                      I'm messaging you about that party that vandalized your home. My name was in the list and I just want to get it confirmed that I wasn't at that party. I was with my boyfriend at that movies that night, but I had asked a friend if there was anything going on that night on a social media, but we ended up going to the movies instead because we had to get up early to meet my parents for a prior commitment. I do know people that were there though. Im very sorry for the damage done to your house. If there's anyway I can help, let me know...thank you for your time

Hello Mr. Holloway, 

I'd like to start by expressing how truly sorry I am for all of the damage done to your beautiful home.  If I could go back to that night knowing what I know now, I never would have gone to that party. When I made the decision to go to that party, I was not aware of the fact that your house was broken into and you and your family didn't know what was going on.  I am also disgusted that someone stole that granite eagle that was part of a headstone. While I was there, I didn't witness anybody vandalizing the property or stealing or damaging anything, besides 2 windows, so I had no clue how much damage was actually done until I saw your website. I feel ashamed to be associated with the group of kids who did such horrible things to your home. Please, let me know how I can help, I am 100% willing to help with clean up or repairs if you'd like.

                                                                  Sincerely, 

                                                                                       

Brian,

Your letter was beautiful and heartfelt. I have lived here in Stephentown for 30 years just down the road from you a bit. I also have spent my career working with troubled youth  and am recently retired. Many of us know what a kind and generous soul you are and are saddened by what you are going thorough, as well as concerned about how so many kids can think this is alright.

I would love to help out with what ever is organized to work on this problem. I am a little skiddish about donating blindly on the internet, but if you email me an address, I can send a small check.

Know that you are loved, and appreciated, Brian.

We, and the kids, will come through this somehow.

My computer would not open the pictures, but you spoke with great wisdom and compassion in the letter, itself.

Please keep me posted as things develop. There must be a way to organize a work party at your house.

i Brian,

    My name is                      , I'm #7 on your list and i'm from Waterford. I really just feel the need to send you this e-mail because i feel so guilty and horrible. Looking back on this it really is horrible that this was done and i feel so disgusting for even going. I had no idea there was any break-in, I was told "someone was away so we were using his house for a party." Had i known this was someone's home that had been broken into, I wouldn't have gone.

    You're really right when you say this is the turning point in our lives and we need to make choices. It really wasn't cool or anything looking back. I didn't know there was burglary or vandilzing or any of that going on but I still want to help. So i'll try my best to donate whatever money I can get, is there a date you need it by? If you need any help with labor you can E-mail me back and i'll give you my parent's phone numbers and i'll be happy to come out and help in whatever way I can. This website really did open my eyes and I'm going to think twice about everything from now on, so thank you for that and I hope i'm not the only one that feels that way.

    Please know that not every one who went did those disgusting vandilizations and thefts. I was raised to respect other people's homes and I know most of my friends were too, so please know we weren't all doing that. I hope the ones who were really realized what they did and can also come forward and apolgize to you like they should. This e-mail will make me feel a whole lot better because I need to fix this so I don't feel guilty anymore. I'm a Junior in high school and I'm part of National Honor Society and I get straight A'/B's on my report cards, making stupid choices like this is just going to ruin my future so thank you for your help.                      

    Oh and by the way                       she's one of my best friends and i can assure you she was not there that night.

     I really hope all damages can be repaid and like I said it would be my pleasure to help in ANY way possible. Thank you.

                                                                                                            Sincerely,

                                                                                                                                                       

Please let me know when or if you will need help.

I can't do much but I would love to offer to help with clean up or painting or whatever you might need help with.  Maybe you just need monetary help..I am a single mom of 4 kids, but I can help a little. Two of my children are teenagers...15+17. I would be completely mortified as a parent to see this and to hear of such a thing.  I know where my kids are at all times and NEVER would they disrespect me or themselves and do something like this. I am terribly sorry for all the damage done in your home and we would love to help. Please let me know anything we can do.

Hello Mr. Holloway, 

I'd like to start by expressing how truly sorry I am for all of the damage done to your beautiful home.  If I could go back to that night knowing what I know now, I never would have gone to that party. When I made the decision to go to that party, I was not aware of the fact that your house was broken into and you and your family didn't know what was going on.  I am also disgusted that someone stole that granite eagle that was part of a headstone. While I was there, I didn't witness anybody vandalizing the property or stealing or damaging anything, besides 2 windows, so I had no clue how much damage was actually done until I saw your website. I feel ashamed to be associated with the group of kids who did such horrible things to your home. Please, let me know how I can help, I am 100% willing to help with clean up or repairs if you'd like.

                                                                  Sincerely, 

                                                                                       

Hello.

My name is                      . I grew up in Berlin and graduated from                       in 2009. Some of the names on your list I know, I grew up with them. Some of them better than others. I know that I saw the spray painted 8/31/13 on facebook with no clue of what it meant. To hear that these kids I grew up with did such a thing to your home sickens me. It makes me angry, but on the other hand I know why kids in that area party and do stupid things like that.

A lot of their parents honestly do not care. Their children are their last worry, their last priority. They're too busy either getting high, trying to keep their roof over their head, or just believe that partying is a part of growing up. Some are alcoholics, some are abusive. Some just aren't present mentally. So these kids who happen to live in the middle of nowhere are extremely bored. They turn to alcohol and drugs as a mean to escape, a mean for entertainment. They see an empty home and want to go through it, they seek the adventure. However, I do not believe what they did was right at all.

What the Berlin area (Stephentown, Berlin, Cherry Plain, Petersburg, Grafton) needs is more support for their youth. We have so many vacant spaces (the stephentown elementary school, grafton elementary school) that could easily be turned into Community Centers. They could have counselors that would be there to talk, games for kids to play, things for kids to do. They could plan trips, they could plan community service, they could do a lot for the youth of our community. 

That of course seems to be a pipe dream.

I have since moved out of                       and am currently living in Albany, however when I think of home I think of the mountains, the trees, the valley, and the kids I grew up with. Too many kids, as you have said, have passed away in the past couple of years due to drinking and driving. Lives have been ruined and kids really are losing hope out there. Why care when there's nothing for them? 

I sincerely appreciate the approach you are taking to this. The fact that you want to help them instead of seeing them destroyed is incredible. I wish I had carpentry skills, money, or time to help you rebuild your home. The community should be appreciative of how you are handling this, I know I am. 

I wish you the best of luck and I will keep my eyes peeled for pictures on facebook so you can add more names to your list. 

-                     

PS.                       is on your list twice and I believe I saw the picture on                       facebook (it has since been taken down), also - the Alex B may or may not be                      , but no promises there. Hope this helps!
