Retiring Londonderry principal still hopes for a call from the Yankees

***Begin Quote***

LONDONDERRY — James Elefante has made a career out of being a principal.

Elefante, 56, spent 16 years as the head of the Matthew Thornton School, six years as assistant principal at the former junior high and the last four years as principal of Londonderry High School — for a total of 26 years as a Londonderry school principal. He retires this month at the end of the school year.

He and his wife, Candace, have two daughters — Kimberly, 21, a student at Colby-Sawyer College, and Lindsey, 18, who graduates from Londonderry High this week.

— Margo Sullivan

***

What are you going to do when you retire?

Lots of different things involved with education. I’m going to be teaching a college class and hopefully working with student teachers, aspiring administrators and anything else anybody wants me to do. But I will give all that up if I get a call from the (New York) Yankees to coach.

Coach? Like a third base coach?

I want to manage. I want to be in charge. I want to be principal of the Yankees. So, I’m waiting for the call.

Why are you a Yankees fan, anyway?

I’m from New York originally. I went to Manhattan College and Adelphi and taught in New York and on Long Island. I’ve been a New Englander for the last 30 years … I do like the Celtics.

The video tribute the students showed at your last pep rally showed you getting a pie in the face. In 26 years, how many pies have you caught?
I couldn’t tell you. Many. I’ve also gone in the dunk pool two, maybe four times. I kissed a pig once, but it was a cute pig. I’ve been dressed up as a cheerleader. And the worst thing, I was dressed up as a Red Sox player.

Was it fun being a principal?

Absolutely. It’s the best job I’ve ever had. Actually, it’s the only job I’ve ever had.

So, what was fun about it?

Just being with the kids. Just bonding with them and seeing them succeed. Seeing them struggle and then succeed.

What’s the biggest thing people don’t know about being a principal?

People don’t realize how involved principals and teachers have to get with kids and how well they get to know kids and families. It’s different today than it was many years ago.

Your own children went to Londonderry schools while you were the principal. Did that cause any problems?

No. When my kids are in school, I see them just as I see every other kid. You’ve got to realize I’ve been principal for most of these kids nine out of their 12 years at school. They’re all my kids when I’m at work. Obviously at home, it’s different.

Except for managing the Yankees, did you ever want to try another line of work?

No. I can’t imagine myself having done anything else. I’m not sure I could. Since I was 12, I was going to be in education. I have absolutely zero regrets.

JEMAIL: fjohn68 cites “Don’t Talk to the Police” by Professor James Duane

My fellow Jaspers:

I have had some very sad email exchanges with one of the chaps who was unfortunately swept up in that drug raid at Manhattan College. He’s trying to put his life back together. I’ve opined on how I believe that everyone is entitled to the freedom to decide what to put in their own body without gooferment ‘help’. I don’t know that this video would have helped them. It certainly couldn’t have hurt. I think that the Professor is absolutely right. Keep your mouth shut at all times! I hope that none of us are ever in that situation, BUT, if you ever find yourself in such circumstances, remember what the Prof said. I will!

http://bght.blogspot.com/2008/06/small-brook-running-in-front-of-1st.html

Stoddard New Pro Shop Manager At SCGCC

***Begin Quote***

Michael Stoddard is the new Pro-Shop and Operations Manager at the Sullivan County Golf & Country Club on Route 52 in Liberty.

Stoddard, 46, took on his new job in April. His family has been a member of the club for over 50 years and Michael noted he has been playing this course since he was 10-years old.

He is a graduate of Liberty Central High School and received his BA from Manhattan College in 1984.

Michael worked in the insurance industry as an insurance claims adjuster and in 2001 opened Cobblers Restaurant on Liberty’s North Main Street where he served as owner, chef and general manager until the popular restaurant was closed in 2007.

Stoddard started cooking for the new 52 Steakhouse in 2008 when “Nick” opened this restaurant at the Sullivan County Golf & Country Club.

In addition to being the Pro-Shop and Operations Manager Michael continues to cook at this restaurant several days a week.

Michael noted in an interview at the golf course last week that “the opportunity presented itself to place a bid for operation and management of the pro shop. I won the bid and now cook part time at 52 Steakhouse and as an independent operator run the pro shop for the membership.”

The Sullivan County Golf & Country Club is owned by members who are stockholders and a board of directors. John Burke is president of the board of directors.

Clay Huebsch is the groundskeeper for the club.

Stoddard said that his goal for this season “is to let the general public know that Sullivan County Golf & Country Club welcomes all players from beginners to experienced players and that everyone can have fun here.”

He pointed out that the course offers a beautiful view and is a challenging course with affordable green fees.

The Sullivan County Golf & Country Club is also the home of Sullivan County’s newest Steak House, the 52 Steakhouse, serving a full lunch and dinner menu.

The Club offers dine and golf packages with the 52 Steakhouse where you can play 18 holes of golf with a cart and have lunch for $32 and 18-holes of golf with a cart and dinner for $45 and the special includes a beverage and dessert.

Special group rates of 20 or more is also available.

The course also offers company outings for employees including golf, lunch and dinner as well as tournaments for fund raisers.
Clubs are available for rent and the pro shop is equipped with all the items needed for your next round of golf.

Membership on this course that was opened in 1925 has grown this year and both certificate and seasonal memberships are available.

The course plays host to three leagues, Monday Men’s, Ladies league on Tuesday and Men’s open league on Wednesday. In June a couples league will start on Thursday.

New at the course this year is the 8th tee menu which is attached to all golf carts and offers golfers out on the course to use their cell phones and call in an order which will be ready when them make the turn or come in to the dining room or lounge.

Golfers who would like to get on the Sullivan County Golf & Country Club e-mail list may do so by sending an e-mail to scgccproshop  at gmail dot com.

Sullivan County Golf & Country Club has 30 carts for rental and green fees for 18-holes is $14 Monday through Friday and $22 on Saturday, Sunday and holidays….after 1 p.m,. on these days the rate is $16.

Cart rates for 9 holes is $8 and $13 for 18 holes. A special weekend rate for 18 holes and cart after 1 p.m. is $25.

A Sullivan County Golf & Country Club Champions board located in the cocktail lounge contains names of club champions from 1935 to 1988 with 13 club championships won by the late John “Jack” Coughlin, a true gentleman and outstanding golfer.

This nine hole golf course offers a whole set of different tees for holes 10-18 and plays to a total yardage of 3,006 yards for nine holes from the men’s tees. Par is 36.for men and 39 for women.

{Extraneous Deleted}

Periscopes are installed on the 1st and 7th tees to give golfers a view further down the fairways and this avoids golfers hitting into each other.
Tee times and information is available by calling 292-9584.

Famed marathon runner Bill Rodgers signs an autograph for David Schneider of Rutland at the finish line of the Crowley Brothers Memorial Road Race in downtown Rutland on Sunday. Rodgers, 60, four-time winner of the Boston and New York Marathons, was nursing a calf injury but ran the race nonetheless, finishing in 54:10.

***and***

The origin of the race came from a challenge between Clarence DeMar, a seven-time Boston Marathon winner, and Rutland’s Frank Crowley. They challenged one another in a race from Proctor to Rutland. Crowley was an NCAA All-American distance runner at Manhattan College and was on the United States 1932 Olympic team.

Today the race is named for the three Crowley brothers of Rutland: Frank, Joe and Larry.

Get your head out of the gutter. It’s a cell phone, not some type of crazy newfangled vibrating…never mind. I’m not even going to go there.

And it just isn’t any cell phone. It’s a Motorola Q9c equipped with Windows Mobile 6. That’s right, a smartphone.

Oh yeah. Look at that. It’s beautiful isn’t it?

Full QWERTY keyboard, integrates with Outlook, has Documents-to-Go functionality, has email and web service, Windows Media player.

And, get this IT CAN MAKE PHONE CALLS TOO.

But I can’t help trying to shake this feeling that it is taking over my life. As I sit at my laptop and write this while periodically looking up to see how the Yankees are doing (Hey, Michael Kay and Al Lieter just started a full blown conversation about Manhattan College’s baseball legacy*) I can’t help but keep the phone within my field of vision.

Matt Coyne is a drunken, dirt-poor student attending Manhattan College. He’s majoring in Communications and concentrating in Journalism.

He enjoys a nice glass of beer, melodic hardcore, and a good hockey or baseball game (depending on the season). One day, he will fail miserably as both a writer and a journalist.


Some writers start blogs to publish their writing, giving their readers/fans a place to read their jottings. This isn’t one of those blogs.
Of course I’m going to post my work, but primarily, these are my drunken, violent, crazy, unintelligent, and usually terribly written thoughts.

This is the content of my mind, spilled out for you to read.

Abstract Symmetric propositions over domain $\mathfrak{D}$ and signature $\Sigma = \langle R^{n_1}_1, \ldots, R^{n_p}_p \rangle$ are characterized following Zermelo, and a correlation of such propositions with logical type-$\langle \vec{n} \rangle$ quantifiers over $\mathfrak{D}$ is described. Boolean algebras of symmetric propositions over $\mathfrak{D}$ and ? are shown to be isomorphic to algebras of logical type-$\langle \vec{n} \rangle$ quantifiers over $\mathfrak{D}$. This last result may provide empirical support for Tarski’s claim that logical terms over fixed domain are all and only those invariant under domain permutations.

Is It Me?

Is it me or has the Rumble in the Bronx turned into the Rumble in the Bronx, Manhattan, and New Jersey? I noticed from the Rivals Seton Hall Site, which happens to be one of the best for recruiting news in addition to news on SHU basketball (I mistakenly said Zagsblog earlier in error), that the playing sites are very spread apart.

{Extraneous Deleted}

Back to the Rumble. Maybe I am missing something but the beauty of that event is being able to see so many games under one roof. Now it could cost $50 in gas getting around to all the sites. It has almost become a regional thing as opposed to a Bronx based event. Fordham to Manhattan College to a public school, to the NJ Nets practice facility? Please this is definitely now just for the kids playing and not for the average hoops fans and basketball junkies.

Again maybe I read into it wrong. But the spread out format has taking the excitement out of me wishing to attend. Maybe I will wait for the
Hoop Group event at Rutgers next week.

Leadership staff of affiliated hospitals takes shape
By Paul Kirby, Freeman staff
06/13/2008

***Begin Quote***

KINGSTON – Three people who are already top executives at Benedictine and Kingston hospitals have been assigned prominent positions with the new company formed to oversee the operations of the soon-to-be affiliated facilities.

But the company – Health Alliance Planning Inc. – is still without a chief executive officer who ultimately will be responsible for those operations.

Both Thomas Dee, Benedictine’s chief executive officer, and Michael Kaminski, Kingston Hospital’s chief executive officer, are expected to be candidates for the top position, according to Sean Casey, a spokesman for the hospitals.

William LeDoux, the co-chairman of Health Alliance Planning’s board of directors, said the appointments are additional steps on the path to affiliation.

“We believe that quality care is, first and foremost, dependent on our skilled and dedicated professionals,” LeDoux said in a press release. “The appointment of the these talented individuals is an important step toward accomplishing our goals of meeting the needs of patients and providing efficient, high-quality care.”

The appointees are as follows.

* David Scarpino, chief financial officer of Benedictine Hospital since January, will serve the same position with Health Alliance Planning.
Scarpino also has held the position of senior vice president of finance and chief financial officer of Kingston Hospital since 1996.
Before joining Kingston Hospital, he was chief financial officer of Riverside Healthcare System, which includes four medical facilities in Westchester County.

He has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Manhattan College and a master’s degree in finance from Pace University.

{Extraneous Deleted}

The appointments are being made as Benedictine and Kingston hospitals move to affiliate under a state mandate. The affiliation cannot be fully completed, however, until the Foxhall Ambulatory Surgery Center, where abortions and other reproductive health procedures will be offered, is built on Kingston Hospital grounds. The center is expected to be built by the end of the year.

Abortion was a key stumbling block in previous merger efforts by the two hospitals because Benedictine, a Catholic facility, forbids the procedure, while Kingston, which is non-sectarian, allows it.

[JR: On an editorial note, we continue to see the secularization of the once great Catholic community. Secular Progressives are putting their ‘religion’ in everywhere. And, the Church has either failed to see it for what it is or have been blackmailed into silently accepting it. Sigh!

JEMAIL: Spargimino, Eric (MC2008) moves onto a real job

Passing of the torch
from Veggie Car by Eric Spargimino

*** begin quote ***

It’s time, I finished my Masters at Manhattan College and have passed the Veggie Car keys along to Dr. Rich Carbonaro. There were a few students still at the college who were showing some interest in the car and the veggie car project. I am sure they will continue the project and make us all proud. Next I am off to Boston to start my career as a Consulting Engineer. Maybe a Veggie powered hybrid plane is next, we’ll see….

I will pass along all blog information to Dr. Carbonaro back at MC and hopefully they will continue to use this to update everyone on future events and happenings of the Veggie Car.

Mr. Reinke~

How very kind of you to write. Larry’s passing is a tremendous loss to us all. He was a considerate husband and wonderful father to our daughter, and had an extraordinary cadre of frineds. We grieve for all things that we will miss without him . Would you please share with me how you learned of his death?

Dear Ms. Schwartz,

Just doing one of the corporal works of mercy — internet style. He sounded like what I’d imagine a Jasper aspires to be. Teachers are role models. The obit reminds me to value every day. I am truly sorry for your loss.

As far as how I found out:

Every day, in addition to automated Yahoo and Google searches for news about my fellow Jaspers, I check the Legacy site for Obits that mention “manhattan college” or “Jasper”.

When I find them, I write an email to the appropriate folks at the College. I believe they include the deceased’s name at the Brother’s Daily Mass. The alumni group at the College inserts the name in the Memorial Roll.

I also post the obituary in two places where our fellow Jaspers can see in at their earliest convenience. It gives enough specifics such that when time and distance permit, an alumni could attend a wake, Mass, or other service. We’re a small cadre of folks, so that’s an exception, more than a rule. Wish it was the other way around.

I also transcribe it into a weekly distribution called Jasper Jottings that is emailed out on Sunday mornings. It goes to about a thousand Jaspers and is read online by another thousand. I use free services so tracking the numbers is problematic at best. Outside of the College, I have the largest database of MC alums. So, I connect about 6,000 Jaspers very loosely together.

I usually put a small message in the Guest Book to let people know that we Jaspers care.

Finally, when the Legacy Guest Book goes offline, I take a copy of it. Sometimes, family members forget to do that, and I’ve been able to help them out.

So that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Again, my condolences. I wish you good luck and speedy healing as time softens the loss. Never a cure for the hurt; just a gradual daily subtraction.
