Meet Snitty Cynthia Karpa McCarthy

The Jealous Historical Society | Rosamond Press

Here she is, the devil who played evil mind games with me – and dead members of my family!. She wrote a book on the City of Belmont – and did not tell me for three days. We were having a squabble over how the facebook for the Belmont Historical Society is set up. My first posts identified me as a close relative of Carl Janke. Did Snitty Miss Cynthia – jump for joy and say;

“Oh by God! I thought you were all dead. I wrote a book on your family. Have you read my book? Do you have more family photos – and history?

One of the first posts I posted was on Cipriani found La California in Italy. did she jump for joy at this news. Did she tell me this was fantastic research. This is a ex-librarian. Don’t they take a oath to respect writers of books, and the history of people – written by relatives. What gets me, she did not approve the Tiffany window in the Janke-Stuttmeister crypt with the name of Augustus Janke on it. Why would she withhold this beautiful historic image from the people of Belmont. I suspect she is a parasite and a thief who stayed up all night pouring through the blog – that she said she did not know existed1 Outrageous. I spoke about the deaths in the family and the books and movie scripts about my famous sister. Is she gong for another Rosemond Book? You think she would have said

“Your sister is Rosamond? Oh my God, I had some of her work. And her grandfather is Carl Janke? Oh my God. Lets co-author a book together!”

But, what got me, is, she took down this photo of the Janke-Stuttmeister crypt after I told her this is where my grandfather moved OUR DEAD after they were dug up from their not final resting place, the Oddfellow cemetery.

As fate would have it, I posted my video of Chuck Kesey on his brothers mural, on Davina Hurt page. Snitty Catherine falsely claimed in her history book, the Grateful Dead lived, or, practiced their music in Ralston Hall. I have been on the bus with Kesey. I believe I posted on Nancy Hamren who worked at the Kesey Creamery and made a famous a yogurt. I will be letting The Dead Family – found all over the world – know that I came upon a trap-door spider that FEEDS OFF THE DEAD. My grandparents knew Joaquin Miller, who was promoted by Ida Culbreth, the head of the Oakland Library. This is a CONSPIRACY! Snitty said she is the only one to blame. How many read my posts, and knew I was handing them a gold mine? Did they should a warning. Did thy say;

“You need to talk to Cynthia Karpa McCarthy! You two have alot in common!”

No we don’t.

Here is the Satan-Cherry atop the who stinking History Theft. I posted on the Tanforan Cottages and my theory Cipriani bought one of Janke’s homes he brought around the Cape in 1849. I said this;

“Someone needs to look at these houses to see if they are screwed together.”

I belive I posted on the dumb claim Ciriani tore down a house in Italy and had it shipped to Belmont. Miss Snitty stole that idea from aother alleged historian, Dd Snitty say;

“Wow! Fantastic theory! Can you come here! Well ut you up in a fine hotel. We can get the city to lend us some construction workers!”

We will review the content for its interest to our followers.”

How many others shared with THE REVIEWERS and got the same treatment – and walked away? I told Cynthia to let me post away, and if THE REVIWERS don’t like it, tell me, and I will take it down. How many visitors to this group – that give a rat’s ass. I will lodge a complaint with facebook.

Greg Presco Hi Greg , I have been enjoyed some of your posts and photos that are directly related to the Belmont area and you have provided some new photos and information that will be put in a file, but please try not to post anything that is off topic or is not Belmont Area related. Thank you ,Denny Lawhern Belmont Historian

“The Belmont Historical Society Facebook page features posts and information pertaining to Belmont, San Mateo County, California and its history. Everyone is encouraged to send us messages. We will review the content for its interest to our followers.”

Here is Cynthia guarding her small town from an outsider whose family made most of Belmont’s history. It boggles the mind! Surely progressive investors are grateful for the warning. I live in Sprigfield Oregon that has been called Springtucky. How about Belabama?

“We are related to historic people somewhere.

William Stuttmeister moved his Janke kin to Colma after the outrage of their graves being opened and evicted. I am going to bring a lawsuit against Belmont if my posts are not restored. This is very traumatic! An outrage made fresh by a jealous ingrate who complained about volunteering. I’ll run your page – all by myself!

I am third generation Oakland where Kamala was born. This morning I spent four hours posting my family history of Carl Janke, a Belmont Pioneer, and all my posts were taken down. There was confusion why my posts were not shown last night. I hope no one is playing boyscout with this very important history. I worked with the Upstairs Art Association, and Oakland Redevelopment, something I read you are interested in. Too many townfolk want to create what they read in the Sally, Dick, and Jane books thinking this is the kind of history they deserve. One of my grandfather’s is associated with Sleepy Hollow and is in Hawthorne’s ‘The Scarlet Letter’. https://rosamondpress.com/…/janke-and-turner-vigilantes/

Rosamond Publishing – About the Artist

Midway between San Francisco and San José, Belmont is where an Italian count reconstructed his villa transported from Italy, where a silver king created “the White House of the West,” and where the Warlocks, a fledgling 1960s rock band, honed the sound they would make famous under another name, the Grateful Dead. Spanish explorers called Belmont’s vales “la Cañada del Diablo,” or “the Devil’s Canyon,” either after the locally famous winds or because the native Ohlone believed the canyon to be inhabited by spirits. Belmont’s historic advantage of being on the bay side of the shortest route to the Pacific coast meant easier access to another type of spirits during Prohibition, fueling a minor red-light district across the tracks on Old County Road. A century or more ago, Belmont’s wooded hills attracted sanitariums and prep schools. Today, its woods and trails draw residents from more developed neighboring towns.

Cynthia Karpa McCarthy, a former newspaper reporter and editor, is a librarian in San Mateo County. A California native, she enjoys reading and researching California history, particularly about Leonetto Cipriani, a Corsican who briefly lived in Belmont, California.

played in–possibly both of them.

Fireside Lounge, 2322 El Camino Real, San Mateo (August 1965)

The Fireside Lounge was run more on the Las Vegas model, if without the gambling. There was dinner and drinks to go with the dancing, sometimes a floor show, or topless dancers late at night. The object for a band was to keep people dancing so that they would buy drinks. I have written about the Fireside Lounge elsewhere, albeit with respect to another band.

According to McNally and Jackson in The Illustrated Trip, The Warlocks played one or a few gigs at The Fireside Lounge in August of 1965. It was probably a sort of “audition” gig, but the band didn’t return there, to my knowledge.

The In Room, El Camino Real, Belmont (mid-September to late October 1965)

The In Room was a popular nightclub in Belmont, although I have not yet been able to identify the exact location (on the map, I located it El Camino Real and Ralston Avenue, a principal intersection the business strip, and The In Room was certainly near there). McNally describes it as

a heavy hitting divorcee’s pick-up joint, the sort of swinging bar where real-estate salesmen chased stewardesses and single women got plenty of free drinks. Dark, with red and black as the color scheme, it was the kind of place that sold almost nothing but hard liquor (p.88)

The Warlocks were booked at the In Room for six weeks, from mid-September until late October of 1965. They played five 50-minute sets a night, five nights a week. 150 sets later, The Warlocks were a real band. The first week they had backed The Coasters for a set each night, but for the balance of the run they covered the gig themselves. They would start out playing almost straight-up, but as they got higher and the night got looser, their playing got more “barbaric.” Oddly enough, they started to build their own audience of nascent freaks, who would show up for the later sets, distinctly different than the hard-drinking pick up crowd. One night, for example, a band of Tacoma transplants called The Frantics ended up hanging out there, which is how Moby Grape guitarist Jerry Miller and Jerry Garcia first met.

The In Room was in Belmont, half way between Palo Alto and San Francisco. The Warlocks had played a little further up the El Camino (The Fireside and Big Al’s), but the In Room stood for a mid-point. The Warlocks were a real band making real money (if not a lot), but they were still doing their own thing and finding their own audience, so they were half way there.

An ad for the In-Room at The Chalet, a hotel at 635 Old County Road in Belmont. This ad was from the Friday, February 12, 1966 edition of the San Mateo Times

Update: Fellow scholar Dave Sorochty tracked down a contemporary ad for The In-Room, in the San Mateo Times (from February 12, 1966). The hotel was called The Chalet (see the picture above), and the lounge was called the In-Room. The actual address was 635 Old County Road. Note in the ad that the host is Rich Romanello; about a year later, Romanello was running a nearby club called Winchester Cathedral, and he promoted the initial incarnation of the groundbreaking Sly And The Family Stone. 

[There is some general talk that The Warlocks played some High School dances in the South Bay in Fall 1965. It is possible, but its important to remember that in the 60s and 70s everybody in the South Bay had a Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia story, and most of them were wishful thinking. Every High School had a story about how the Dead played there back in the day, or Jerry Garcia went there, and they can’t all of been true. Supposedly the Warlocks played Palo Alto High School on September 19, 1965, but it has been impossible to confirm this]

Pierre’s, Broadway at Columbus, San Francisco (early November 1965)

At some point, The Warlocks made Phil Lesh’s former roommate, Hank Harrison, into their manager. Harrison did very little for the group in his brief tenure. One gig he did get them was playing at a topless joint on North Beach called Pierre’s. Pierre’s, on the corner of Broadway in Columbus, the same corner as City Lights Bookstore, had been a popular Latin Jazz nightspot in the early 1960s. As topless joints took over Broadway, Pierre’s went topless as well, but the club was fading.

Cynthia Karpa McCarthy played an evil game with me and my dead. She kept removing posts, but, never told me she wrote a book on Belmont with photos of members of my family. She, and another kept threatening to take down my posts, knowing how valuable they are – especially my family photographs. This constitute Conspiracy. All evidence I exist, or posted on a site guided by the City of Belmont, is being erased. My posts on the City Managers office, are being taken down. Thank God I posted my information here – in duplicate! I also made copies of our exchange. I told Cynthia I posted here. I believe there is a Coverup! My full name is John Gregory Presco. When I reportedon the anarchist of Eugene Oregon they went after me. They filed a false abuse report. I got deaht threats. THIS is worse -by far! This FEIND has no love, or RESPECT, for my ancestors. She feeds off them. They pay her rent and buy her a new car. https://rosamondpress.com/…/meet-snitty-cynthia-karpa…/

  • Greg PrescoBelmont appears to be seen as a conservative stronghold? If true – why! The area to Santa Cruz and Big Sur has been a Mecca for Bohemian types who created a ten billion dollar a year alternative economic reality – that everyone can use due to the coronavirus. Established restaurants are closing for good. How come a group of conservatives did not save the Cliff House? You need someone like me who is not afraid to ask the hard questions. Perhaps the solutions are real easy? http://hilltromper.com/…/la-honda-creek-open-space…
