POSITRACTION: Abused Dogs can fix convicts?

2016-Mar-06

Give a Prisoner an Abused Dog and WATCH What Happens, Karmic Connection

Give a Prisoner an Abused Dog and WATCH What Happens, Karmic Connection
by Terry Turner – Feb 19, 2016

*** begin quote ***

A Prison inmate can connect with an abused dog probably better than anyone. A new documentary shows firsthand how this connection can change two lives at the same time, and proves “nothing is impossible” when it comes to redemption.

“Dogs on the Inside” explores a Massachusetts program in which stray or wild dogs are given a second chance at life behind barbed wire as minimum security prison inmates foster them–and in the process, improve their own situations.

*** end quote ***

We know that Vets are helped with PTSD by service dogs.

So, maybe this is a way to “fix” human beings.

Clearly, we need to find new and innovative ways to “repair” human beings.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Billy

2016-Mar-06

Good Afternoon All,

I ask for your prayers for my Son Scott’s High School Classmates and Good Friend, Billy Diele. Billy was called home this past week, visitation last evening and Mass of Christian Burial today. We knew Billy and his Parents. Billy, a fine young man, full of spirit and with a ready smile that would make one smile. We know his parents, his Wife and Sons and friends are deeply grieving and Billy will be missed by all. Please keep Billy, his Family and Friends in your prayers as we pray that they find peace in knowing that Billy is at rest in God’s Embrace. My Daughter in law shared the following in telling Peggy and I of Billy’s death. Thank you. God Bless.

I hope you guys are well. I’m sorry to email you with sad news….

This morning, Scott learned that his friend Billy Diele passed away a few days ago. He saw the news on Facebook and, as expected, is very upset so he asked me to let you guys know.

He learned the news with just enough time to possibly attend one or both (the wake/funeral) tonight or tomorrow.

With every death, the scars on our heart are re-opened. I never got the chance to meet Billy personally but know he was a great guy through all of the stories I’ve overheard you all tell. His passing is a bittersweet reminder of how precious life is, how to not take things for granted, and to live each day with a genuine heart. We know all too well (especially recently) that so many are taken so soon. I have faith that they are guardian angels for those of us still down here.

Love you guys.

Talk soon,

Melissa

Good Afternoon All,

Howard ‘Bud’ Kelly, 1925-2016

By The Family on March 8, 2016
in Latest, Lead News, News, Obituaries

Soldier, Hero, Athlete, Writer, Husband to the late Nancy Wilson Kelly (longtime Ridgefield Elementary school teacher), beloved Father to Kimberly and Kerry Kelly and beloved Grandfather to Matthew, Thomas, and James Sara.

Howard Kelly was born in NYC and later moved, with his family, to Rowayton, Conn. He joined the Marine Corps at age 18. After his service in WWII he went on to graduate from Manhattan College all the while playing baseball for the Marine Corps, Manhattan College, and went on to become a professional baseball player batting .407 for a season at Cornwall Ontario Ball Park. Known as “Home run Howie,” he held the record for the farthest homerun ever hit at the Cornwall park.

After his baseball career “Bud” and Nancy moved to Ridgefield, to start their family. Howard went on to become a sports writer, newspaper editor, and then magazine editor. Howard J. Kelly Jr. will be laid to rest at The Arlington National Cemetery in late spring.

Howard, “Bud,” Dad, Gramps, was not only what we called “a walking encyclopedia,” but anyone who knew him is well aware of his truly unique, “dry Irish,” sense of humor. He had a gentle soul and a loving, generous heart.

He was deeply loved by his family and will be missed beyond measure.

2016-Mar-09

Good Evening All,

I ask for your prayers for a friend of Melissa, my Daughter-in-Law. Kelly Fanning was a friend from Melissa’s Dance School years. As Melissa shared, Kelly was someone she always looked up to. ” Kelly had an essence about her on stage that was infectious and inspiring. …..I will think about the good times.” She was called home at the age of 37, a beautiful young woman, neither a Wife nor a Mother but a great Aunt to her two Nephews. We pray for the repose of the soul of this young woman and her Family. We pray that she is now at peace in God’s Eternal Embrace. Thank you. God Bless.

“I am so so so glad I did New Visions my senior year of high school!” Burns said recently via e-mail. “This current semester I am only taking three class, plus an internship for credit, because I came into college with so many credits, thanks to New Visions.”

Burns, a broadcasting major at Manhattan College, earned nine college credits through the New Visions program. Although New Visions isn’t just about journalism – the program has since changed its name to New Visions: Multimedia and Digital Communications – it exposes students to careers in print, digital and broadcast journalism while also training them in video editing, public relations and social media marketing.

With her experience writing for the Times Union’s High School blog, Burns felt confident enough to join the Manhattan College newspaper The Quadrangle where she is currently the Arts & Entertainment Editor. Burns credits her newspaper experience with helping her land the production internship at ET/ The Insider.

Venice man served as code breaker for Army
By Abby Weingarten, Herald-Tribune / Thursday, March 10, 2016
By James “Jim” Brady as told to Abby Weingarten

*** begin quote ***

Born in Yonkers, New York, in 1922, Jim Brady enlisted in the Army in 1942 during his third year at Manhattan College. Because of his background in Latin and Spanish, as well as his high IQ, Brady was assigned to a language-based position in military intelligence. Brady learned to read and write Japanese code, and to translate Japanese messages into English. He was discharged in 1946, and later embarked on a career in housing and land development. Now 94, Brady lives in Venice with his wife, Peg, of 67 years.

*** end quote ***

I recognize “attendees” on the theory “if it’s important to some to mention in an obit, then we can spare a few prayers”. Perhaps, the time at MC was both formative and important to our comrade. And, imho, WW2 interrupted many plans. A good many went to never came back and maybe those that did had new priorities. Here’s one of those “interrupted” ones; very interesting. Personally, I’m “jealous”; he “got” Japanese — much more useful than my Thai assignment. Laugh!]

Harry Charles Hall
Obituary

Born in Pittsfield, MA, Harry Charles Hall grew up poor but resourceful in Brooklyn, N.Y. He earned a scholarship to a Catholic high school, joined the Navy and then went to Manhattan College on the GI bill. While a student he worked as a soda jerk to support himself and at the counter he met his to-be-wife Pauline Greeley, who had moved to the Big City from White Plains. They married in August of 1951 with the first of their six children – Candice, Susan, Melinda, Stacy, Tracy, and Troy – arriving the next year.

Harry, ever hard working, pursued a personnel career with a succession of multi-national firms, moving his growing family from New York, to Indonesia, to California, to Belgium, to Rhode Island and finally to New Jersey. After he and Pauline retired to Denver, Harry served as a president of Trout Unlimited, as a Roxborough Park ranger and as a board member on The Preserve homeowners’ association; he built trails, taught driving safety classes, and helped Pauline with her doll shop. They traveled widely, visiting the world, even Patagonia for fishing, and their dozen grandchildren – Jef, Thea, Tore, David, Kyle, Brede, Charlotte, Amy, Dana, Martin, Maja and Patrick – until Pauline’s death in 2009.

Greenwood Village formally declared a Harry Hall Day in thanks for his civic engagement. Harry married Sue Shulman, now Sue M. Hall, originally from Missouri, in February 2012. They moved to Holly Creek where he took up watercolor and poetry, joined a book group and assisted neighbors whose mobility was more limited than his. Like most quiet people, he had the sharpest wit in the room and the kindest heart. Harry cared very, very much about his family, his friends, and those whom he met in his travels.

His children and grandchildren are honored by the legacy of his 88 years well lived.

JEMAIL: McEneney, Mike (MC1953) mourns Thomas J. Kelleher, a friend to Alma Mater

2016-Mar-12

Dear John,

Here is the Obituary for Tom Kelleher, an honorary member of the Manhattan College Class of 1953, and my good friend, and that of many of our classmates, since our Freshman Year in 1949.

Tom was a graduate of St Brendan’s Elementary School in the Bronx, where he met and stayed friendly with a number of fellow Jasper’s – the late Bob Crookston & Joe Collins among others. Tom never missed a basketball game or a social event. Since he was working he had a car and willing chauffeured any one
who needed a ride. At the Businessmen’s Ball he brought the makings of Brandy Alexanders for he and his date Pat. After graduation they never missed our Class Reunions or other Social Events.

He will be missed.

May He Rest In Peace,

Mike

McEneney, Mike (MC1953)

Thomas J. Kelleher, 85, of Lake Lincolndale, died peacefully on March 10, 2016.

Tom was born in the Bronx to Michael and Sarah (nee Kelly) Kelleher on August 25, 1930. He graduated from Cardinal Hayes High School and proudly served in the U.S. Naval Reserve.

As students all know professors work extremely hard to bring us new and exciting lessons every semester. While teaching classes and conducting certain events on campus, they still find the time to work on other projects that further enrich themselves in the world of the performing arts inside and outside of the college.

Notre Dame has announced that it will bestow its 2016 Laetare Medal, the “oldest and most prestigious honor accorded to American Catholics,” on pro-abortion Vice President Joe Biden. This time, however, the offense is even greater: a pro-abortion Catholic politician is being honored as one “whose genius has ennobled the arts and sciences, illustrated the ideals of the Church [emphasis added] and enriched the heritage of humanity.”

*** end quote ***

Now how can Holy Mother Church tolerate such conduct from what is probably the college that most people identify as “Catholic”?

I already have enough trouble with pedophile religious, “social justice”, and the other Communist political correctness thrown around.

This takes the cake.

*** begin quote ***

When other riders on the train moved away from a man in mental distress, a 70-year-old woman took his hand.

The random act of kindness by the older woman was enough to calm the young man who had been cursing and moving erratically.

Ehab Taha, a passenger on the Vancouver, British Columbia Skytrain at the time, snapped a photo and posted it on Facebook. He said the man sat with the woman who tightly gripped his hand until he started to cry.

The woman’s actions not only calmed the fitful young man, but also reassured the train’s other passengers.

“I’m a mother and he needed someone to touch,” the unidentified woman told Taha before starting to cry herself.

Now that had to take courage and bravery.

I hope that I could be that empathetic to my fellow human being.

Something I remember, “whatever you do for the least of my brethren”?

Writing checks is so much easier and uninvolved.

Even better, yet, I pay my taxes; let the Gooferment do it.

“Are there no workhouses?”

Guess I have to step up my game if I’m to sneak in the side door.

JNEWS: Randall, Jared [MC2003] FBI investigating the 2018 World Cup

*** begin quote ***

Also in ESPN, there’s an excellent long read on how the FBI brought down Fifa by Shaun Assael and Brett Forrest.

“If you mention football to most feds, the NFL springs to mind. Jared Randall is different. Tall with dark hair and blue eyes, he had played soccer since he was a kid and even attended a 1994 World Cup match in Foxboro Stadium. He went on to captain the team at Division I Manhattan College in the Bronx. After Randall joined the FBI a few years out of school, he even wrangled a spot for himself on the New York City Police Department’s soccer team.

“In early 2010, Randall, then 28, was assigned to a specialized group of FBI agents in lower Manhattan. The Eurasian organized crime unit, led by a veteran mob investigator named Michael Gaeta, scrutinized criminal groups from Georgia, Russia and Ukraine that were running sophisticated scams in the U.S. As Randall and Gaeta linked street-level criminal operators to figures in Eastern Europe’s business and political elite, they started piecing together a string of rumors that led them to an unsettling conclusion: Russia might be bribing its way to host the 2018 World Cup.”

COMMENT: McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973) reacts to “Victim disarmament”

2016-Feb-22

McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973)

In Response To ENDNOTE: Like most tools, guns need care
Submitted on 2016/02/22 at 8:57 am

“Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.”

I’m currently playing a computer role-playing game titled FALLOUT 4. It’s a weirdly atmospheric post-nuclear-holocaust game premised on a kind of a 1940s’ view of what a 1960s’ civilization might look like when/after it got hit with a nuclear war.

Soooo…. as part of communicating that atmosphere they have a pirate radio station set up in the game with a strange DJ and a song selection of fifty or so actual songs that were popular in the 1930s through 1950s about nuclear holocausts and social things. One of the songs is about a “Pistol Packin’ Mama” which your note brings to mind….

– MJM, who’s had a hard time accepting the fact that people actually recorded and sang FUNNY songs about nuclear wars in the 1950s! Sheeesh!

# – # – #

Heh, and writing that post put me in mind of a Tom Lehrer song that I believe was recorded a bit later: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ky0ROTsD14

Only about 90 seconds long… and definitely worth listening to. (And it’s nicely followed by more by Tom that are just as good!)

George H. “Guy” Schiller
1936 – 2016
Obituary

East Lyme – George “Guy” H. Schiller died peacefully on Friday, Feb. 19, 2016, at Lawrence +Memorial Hospital with his loving family gathered around him.

Guy was born in New York City on Oct. 28, 1936, the son of George A. Schiller and Loretta (Hendrick) Schiller. After moving to New Rochelle, N.Y., in 1938, Guy attended Holy Family Grammar School, Archbishop Stepinac High School, and Manhattan College where in 1958, he received a bachelor of electrical engineering degree. He was an Eagle Scout and a member of the Order of the Arrow. Upon graduation from Manhattan, Guy started working for AT&T in White Plains, N.Y., in their management development program.

On June 20, 1959, he married his best friend and soulmate, Lucine M. Suarez, at Holy Family Church in New Rochelle.

Along with his wife, Lucine, he leaves behind six children and nine grandchildren, son, Guy and his wife, Carol, of Niantic and their children, Jillian and Joseph; daughters, Kathryn Steglitz of Trumbull and her daughter, Samantha, and Joanne Fasciolo and her husband, Adam, of Norwalk and their children, Alex and Emma; sons, Roy of Oneonta, N.Y.; Mark and his wife, Kathleen, of Frederick, Md. and their children, Griffin and Kristin; and Paul and his wife, Jeanne, of Mohegan Lake, N.Y. and their sons, Jack and Brian. He also leaves a sister, Dorothy Kelly and her husband, Tom, their children and his cousins.

His son-in-law, Andrew, husband of Kathryn, predeceased him.

During his 40 year career with AT&T, Guy had multiple assignments in sales, engineering, human resources and operations in Philadelphia, Wayne and Harrisburg, Pa., New York City and White Plains, N.Y., and New Haven. He attended graduate courses at RPI in Troy, N.Y., and The Summer School of Alcohol Studies at Rutgers University in New Jersey. While in engineering, he worked in Bell Labs on the initial broad band transcontinental network for high speed transmission of data on the testing of the Titan missile. After becoming district outside plant engineer for the Northeast area, he was responsible for all new cable installations including the shore landing of the trans-Atlantic cable at Greenhill, R.I.

Upon taking over the district manager’s job for human resources in the region, he initiated programs that led to their first Employee Assistance Program. It was during this time that he attended Iona College and received a master of science degree in pastoral counseling and was awarded the Brother Mark Egan Memorial Medal for being the most outstanding student in the graduating class. During his tenure in the human resource position, he developed seminars to help employees deal with change. The most widely given program was ADAPT, aimed at helping those who were dealing with change over which they had no control. In addition, he developed an educational seminar on the disease of alcoholism which was also pivotal in the change of many lives.

During the last 10 years of his career Guy was the operations manager for Connecticut, Rhode Island, and central Massachusetts. While in this assignment, he oversaw the conversion to the digital age of a number of switching machines in New Haven, Cheshire, Worchester, Bridgeport, and White Plains. He was the project manager for the engineering and installation of the digital radio system to Fishers Island, N.Y. from New London.

Guy was a lifelong Catholic and certified catechist. He was the co-founder of the folk group BASIC (Brothers and Sisters in Christ) which was devoted to spreading the gospel through music, not only at Holy Name of Jesus parish in New York but at ecumenical services as well. As an active member of the Cursillo movement since 1965, he served on numerous teams and was a member of its leadership group for many years. In addition, he served on teams for Teens Encounter Christ and Residents Encounter Christ, a retreat for prison inmates. Always involved in parish life, he was an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion at Holy Name of Jesus in Valhalla, N.Y. and at St. Matthias in East Lyme. He also prepared teens for the reception of the sacrament of confirmation in both parishes. In recent years, he facilitated the adult bible study at St. Matthias and at York Correctional Institution. He was a member of the board of directors of St. Vincent De Paul Place, serving as vice president. He chaired the building committee for St. Matthias Church and for Our Lady of the Assumption Chapel at St. Edmund’s Retreat on Enders Island. Guy served on the Attawan Beach Association Board of Governors as vice president and was president during the association’s 50th anniversary celebration.

Guy enjoyed woodworking and carving, golf, fishing, playing the guitar, and reading. He took special delight in making things for his children and grandchildren such as cradles, furniture and toys. He made pieces of furniture for St. Matthias and St. Edmund’s, most notably the confessional screen at St. Edmund’s, their processional cross and the credence table at St. Matthias.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Francis Mirecki, Dr. Stephen Lattanzi, Dr. Mihkel Haus and the team of nephrologists from Southeastern Nephrology Associates and the DaVita Dialysis Center. The family is extremely grateful to Dawn McDermott, RN and Marya Ursin of Hospice of Southeastern Connecticut, and to the marvelous RNs in the ICU at L+M, not only for their expert care of Guy, but for their ministrations to the family. The family especially thanks Dr. Donald Felitto who shepherded Guy and his family with professional acumen, grace filled care and tender compassion.

Arrangements are by the Thomas L. Neilan & Sons East Lyme Funeral Home in Niantic.

The family will receive relatives and friends from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27, at St. Matthias Church, 317 Chesterfield Road, East Lyme, followed by Mass at 11 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to A Sacred Place (prison ministry), PO Box 48, Niantic, CT 06357; ArcOtsego, 35 Academy St., Oneonta, NY 13820; Center for Hospice Care SECT, 227 Dunham St., Norwich, CT 06360; and St. Matthias Church, 317 Chesterfield Road, East Lyme, CT 06333.

Diane’s Sister Debbie writes:

“My sister went back to her old gym on Saturday. Her instructor put together a little program for her. She was so excited and is really motivated to getting her strength back. My family had a meeting at the National Rehabilitation Clinic today to get an update on Dianes progress. She is doing really and they are very happy with her progress.

This is an update that the gym instructor posted on his gym’s facebook page…its encouraging!

“Today was a great day at AlloverFitness. Started off with a super packed circuit at 10am then 3 of the guys from South Dublin South Dublin Kettlebell Club had 8 minutes tests ahead of national championships next weekend of all did really well.

As great as all that was the highlight of my day was this woman Diane Marley walking through the doors of AlloverFitness after 6 months. On the 11th of September last Diane suffered a serious brain trauma injury so serious she was given last rights by the Hospital priest that night, but look at this after 5 head operations later and 6 months in hospital you see her here. In this time she had shown unbelievable courage bravery and determination to live and what’s more mad eager to get back training so today we started off with some Mobility Drills light lunges and a small amount of work on the suspension trainer so were going to continue with this work and get Diane back to were she was 6 months ago so to you Diane Marley I take my hat off to you,you are an absolute inspiration to us all and I look forward to seeing you again next week. Damien.”

Here is a picture of Diane at the gym!

Children and Families First hires Laura Rimmer to lead development in southern Delaware
Feb 24, 2016

Laura Rimmer

Children and Families First announced Laura C. Rimmer is the new development and grants coordinator for Sussex and Kent counties. Based in CFF’s Georgetown office, Rimmer will be responsible for expanding funding opportunities and outreach partnerships throughout lower Delaware.

A graduate of Manhattan College with a bachelor of arts in psychology and government, and of Rutgers University with a master’s in social work, Rimmer brings a fresh perspective and extensive background in nonprofit marketing, development fundraising and social work to the position.

“Children and Families First has grown through the years to meet the needs of kids facing adversity throughout Delaware, and we knew we needed a professional with experience and a unique skill set to increase our outreach in Kent and Sussex counties,” said CFF Director of Development Elizabeth Dougherty. “We are excited to have Laura join our team. She’ll be working with our Southern Development Committee and local organizations to build relationships, and increase local awareness and support for CFF programs.”

Rimmer and the Southern Development Committee have already started work on their first joint event. Fish On Seafood Grill’s inaugural guest bartender night is set for 6 to 9 p.m., Thursday, March 10. The event aims to raise awareness and support in a fun, casual, social atmosphere with 18 local personalities pouring drinks as guest bartenders in a friendly competition to raise tips.

“Knowing that this agency annually impacts the lives of more than 40,000 infants, children, teens and parents is amazing to me as a licensed social worker,” Rimmer said. “I am thrilled to be a part of Children and Families First, and welcome the opportunity pair my clinical knowledge with my development background to keep improving our outreach in Kent and Sussex counties.”

For more information about Children and Families First in Kent and Sussex counties, contact Rimmer at 302-604-6273 or Laura.Rimmer@ccfde.org.

JEMAIL: McEneney, Mike (MC1953) cites two Jaspers in the news

2016-Feb-25

Dear John,

I was struck yesterday by seeing two JASPERS in the papers:In the NY Daily News carried a piece on the law suit resulting fromthe Bronx fire in 2005 where 6 firefighters were either injured orkilled. One of those who died was firefighter John Bellew, Class of 1989 (R.I.P.). A total of $183 Million was award by a Jury to 5 of the 6 men.

On a happier note, the NY Times had a piece on an interview with Chief Justice Roberts by the Dean of the New England Law School, John F. O’Brien, Class of 1973, about the increase in courtopinions including quotes from popular songs of the 70′ & 80’s.An interesting diversion from the usual commentaries on theSupreme Court.

Best,

Mike

ENDNOTE: How do we shrink the Gooferment when they “withhold” from us?

2016-Feb-28

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2016/02/murray-n-rothbard/total-demolition-milton-friedman/

Milton Friedman Unraveled
By Murray N. Rothbard
February 6, 2016

*** begin quote ***

One of Friedman’s most disastrous deeds was the important role he proudly played, during World War II in the Treasury Department, in foisting upon the suffering American public the system of the withholding tax. Before World War II, when income tax rates were far lower than now, there was no withholding system; everyone paid his annual bill in one lump sum, on March 15. It is obvious that under this system, the Internal Revenue Service could never hope to extract the entire annual sum, at current confiscatory rates, from the mass of the working population. The whole ghastly system would have happily broken down long before this. Only the Friedmanite withholding tax has permitted the government to use every employer as an unpaid tax collector, extracting the tax quietly and silently from each paycheck. In many ways, we have Milton Friedman to thank for the present monster Leviathan State in America.

*** end quote ***

I’ve been enamored with two concepts: (1) end withholding and require people to write BIG checks for taxes, and (2) make “election day” the day after “tax payment day”.

Not like this will EVER happen. It’d GUARANTEE a revolution.

Our freedoms are taken away the same way that one eats baloney. One slice at a time.

So too, I think we regain them “one slice at a time”.

“We, The Sheeple” need to demand a “penny on the dollar” cut to every item in the Gooferment’s budget.

Surely, every bureaucrat can cut 1%. What don’t they? Because “We, The Sheeple” don’t demand it.

Argh!

POSITRACTION: Roll with turbulence — acquire knowledge in other fields

2016-Feb-14

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2016/02/doug-casey/learn-scrooge-mcduck/

The Single Wisest Thing You Can Do with Your Money
By Doug Casey
Doug Casey’s International Man
February 6, 2016

*** begin quote ***

Who knows what skills may be required in the years to come? What you’re doing now, be it teaching school, practicing law, laying brick, or selling insurance, may be in low demand. But preparing French cuisine, fixing autos, keeping books, or offering financial counsel may be in high demand. Or perhaps the other way around.

The single wisest thing you can do with your money is not buy gold. It’s to take courses and acquire knowledge in other fields, as unrelated to what you are now doing as possible. Anything related to science, and in particularly, technology would seem especially suitable. Computer science, medicine, mechanics, agriculture, and electronics are all going to remain in demand.

In the TV series Star Trek, the supremely knowledgeable Mr. Spock bailed the crew out as often as anyone. It’s hard to imagine him unemployed, for that reason. More knowledge can only increase your understanding of the way the world works now, and if it stops working the way it presently does, you’ll be able to continue. It will then no longer be the end of the world if you lose your present job.

And a lot of people will.

*** end quote ***

Funny, that is what I think I learned at Alma Mater and the USAF. Flexibility and adaptability.

That, and one can be very wrong about you think will bring you success. Of course, I didn’t learn that until I was too old make use of that key discovery.

I used to tell youngsters or anyone that would listen what I thought.

Success for your generation is: (1) ruthless financial discipline — no bad debt; (2) a life long interest in learning — education — a degree — they can’t take it away from you; (3) a NON-OFFSHORABLE white collar job in order to save big bux; (4) a blue collar skill for hard times — never saw a poor plumber; (5) one or more internet based businesses — your store is always open; (6) a free time hobby that generates income; and (7) a large will-maintained network of people who can “help” you.

Now, I keep my own counsel because I’m “old”. And, not only do others need what I thought was important then, but they have to figure it out on their own. Just like I did.

Today I content myself with “The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly. – Buddha”

Good Morning All Once Again,

I just spoke with Jim Smith and we were able to catch up a little. He sounds good, wants to know what is going on at the College and cannot thank each of you enough for your prayers and good thoughts. It is hard to keep a good man down and in my book, Jim is one of the best. In rehab, they keep him busy with somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 hours daily of increasingly more strenuous Physical Therapy and Jim is dealing with that well. He sends his regards to each of you and please keep the prayers coming. Keep Jim, Kathleen and their Family in your prayers as we pray for Jim’s continued and complete recovery. Thank you. God Bless.

Students erected a mock border on Manhattan College’s quad to draw attention to the pope’s visit to border areas in Mexico.

Walking through Manhattan College’s quad this week, visitor will notice a new addition: a freestanding chain-link fence, about 30 yards long, covered in posters with pro-migrant slogans.

Sophomore Brianna DelSantos explained that the fence is a “mock border,” meant to represent a border between two countries that are divided and should be unified — like, she said, the borders between Mexico and the United States or Guatemala.

Katherine M. Martin
Myrtle Beach

Katherine M. Martin, 81, died peacefully Friday, February 19, 2016 at Brightwater.

Katherine was born in 1934 in the Bronx, NY, the first child of Michael J. Feeney and Catherine McDermott Feeney.

She graduated from Aquinas High School in 1952 and a year later she entered the Sisters of Mercy, a religious order dedicated to education and hospital work. After her religious training and five years in schools in New York City, she was assigned to Our Lady of Victory Academy in Dobbs Ferry, NY. It was in OLVA that she would spend the next 36 years of her life as a Social Studies teacher.

She earned her BA from Mary Mount College in Tarrytown, NY and in 1970, a Master’s Degree in history from Manhattan College.

In the years that followed, she amassed 30 more graduate credits by attending seminars and summer institutes around the country.

As a teacher, Katherine brought a no-nonsense approach to the classroom that won her the respect of the students and faculty alike. She had the ability to create an atmosphere where learning could take place. She taught the full range of Social Studies from freshman introductory course to advanced placement history to the more gifted.

In 1971 she left Sisters of Mercy and a year later married Victor Martin, whom she met at OLVA. Katherine retired from teaching on 1999 and she and her husband moved to Little River, SC. They both worked at North Strand Helping Hand for approximately 5 years.

She was a member of Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church.

Katherine is survived by her husband, Victor A. Martin, Jr. and two sisters, Margaret Grifferty of Scarsdale, NY and Nancy Manning of Bronxville, NY.

A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 am on Tuesday, February 23 at Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church. Burial will follow at North Myrtle Beach Memorial Gardens.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Georgie

2016-Feb-19

Good Morning All,

I ask for your prayers for a young man, Georgie, 30 years old, on Long Island who has been troubled and addicted to drugs, now to heroin, much of his life. He and his roommate overdosed on Heroin yesterday. The police responded rushing one of them, thought to be the roommate to Hospital and pronouncing Georgie dead from an overdose. As it turned out, Georgie was revived and his roommate had died. Georgie has another shot at life or he can continue on his path with drugs and end up as perhaps the next victim. Please pray for Georgie, his Family. Pray that this episode revives his will to live and trust in God. We pray that having survived this most recent episode helps Georgie to seek and listen to the help he needs. We pray too for his roommate and his Family during this terrible time.

A recent statistic was recorded on Long Island, 200 deaths reported this past year due to Heroin overdose. Please pray for those souls and their Families. Thank you. God Bless.

HS Sports Community Mourns Loss Of ‘Once-In-Lifetime Guy’ Joe McGuinness
by Skip Pearlman 02/20/2016 sports

BARDONIA, N.Y. – The Albertus Magnus, Rockland County and Hudson Valley athletic communities are all mourning a big loss — Joe McGuinness, a longtime coach and athletic director at Albertus Magnus High School, died Feb. 12 after battling cancer.

Born Nov. 18,1960 in Suffern to John J. and Florence McGuinness, McGuinness graduated from Clarkstown South High School and Manhattan College.

A New City resident, McGuinness had previously attended West Point where he played basketball under now Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski. Krzyzewski wrote a letter of recommendation earlier this year supporting McGuinness’ nomination to the Rockland County Sports Hall of Fame. You can read the letter here. McGuinness will be inducted posthumously into the hall later this year.

He married the former Cynthia Pierce of Manhasset, NY on June 6, 1987. He is survived by Cynthia and his three children, Megan, Patrick and Conor, and by 24 nieces and nephews. His family was his life.

“Joe was a wonderful guy – a great husband, teacher and coach,” Albertus Magnus interim AD Tom Collins told Daily Voice. “There were over 2,000 people at his funeral. He had an affection for people, and people had an affection for Joe.”

Approximately 4,000 attended a wake held for McGuinness at Albertus.

“His ability to be an athletic director, coach and teacher were second to none,” Collins said. “He made ordinary players and people better. And everyone will tell you the same thing. He was very strong. He was a once-in-a-lifetime type of guy.”

I have been very involved in the recovery movement for many years. When I say I, I mean I and my family.

We will certainly pray for Georgie and his family. If Georgie want to talk with me or one of my sons who has been in recovery for awhile he should call. If Georgie’s parents what to talk they should call…any time…402-570-2809

Every year or so I gave a talk back at Manhattan to those groups of students that have these problems.

If the problem is alcohol Matt Talbot is the almost Saint that is you man. I can send you Matt Talbot prayer cards to give out at your parish.

If drugs are the problem, St Maximillian Kolbe is the key.

ENDNOTE: Like most tools, guns need care

5 Things Every Reasonable Gun Owner Ought To Know
By Marc J. Victor
February 13, 2016

*** begin quote ***

There are countless people who regularly carry firearms safely and responsibly.  Most of them will never have any problems at all relating to those firearms.  Carrying a firearm ought to be boring.  You should be comfortable with the fact that you will never likely have to pull it out.  Like flood insurance, we hope to never need it.  However, it is important to have in the event you actually need to use it.  If you are carrying a firearm because you want some action, or you are constantly looking for reasons to pull it out, I suspect you will need my services someday.  As I previously said, there are few ways to ruin the rest of your life more quickly than by misusing a firearm.  I have seen it time and time again.  I hope you will learn from the mistakes of others currently sitting in prison serving long sentences.  Don’t be an idiot with a gun!

I think that “the law is an ass”.

I agree that this one tool should be one’s last resort.

“Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.”

That’s the standard that I’d use.

That being said, “We, The Sheeple” are stupidly relying on the police, politicians, bureaucrats, and “The Gooferment” to keep them safe. There are many Gooferment Court decisions that say they have no specific duty to protect you. You have to protect yourself.

How can you do that if you stipulate that the bad guys can be armed?

“Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose

“God made men and women; Sam colt made them equal.” — Unknown

While one can’t do “bumper sticker” philosophy, it communicates the point effectively.
