Mass. man ticketed in gridlock while wife in labor

Fri Dec 5, 3:31 pm ET

*** begin quote ***

BOSTON – A man in Massachusetts is appealing a $100 ticket he got for driving to a hospital in the breakdown lane of a gridlocked Boston highway while his wife was in labor.

*** end quote ***

One has to wonder how we treat our fellow man. Having done many years as na EMT, I know that most folks over estimate labor and how much time they have. But, he was your average ‘civilian’. So, maybe, he didn’t need to go nuts when stck in traffic. But, by the same token, the cop didn’t need to be the butt end of a horse.

I hope that this reminds me to give my fellow man the benefit of the doubt.

Last Ditch Effort

To members of The Official Manhattan College Ice Hockey Club Group

Matt Coyne

December 14 at 1:19pm

Hey guys,

In case you haven’t read the group, Student Government turned us down. They initially told us that we wouldn’t have a problem getting approved and now they, too, have {Expletive Deleted} us.

There is a little hope though. The Men’s Swimming program that was stared is in trouble for a bunch of reasons and one of the main arguments against a hockey club was that Athletics wanted to fund us at least partially. If the rumors are true, then the Men’s Swimming team is going to be disbanded, which leaves a gap in the Athletic budget.

I’m going to try and write some letters/emails over break to various people in the administration to try and get some support from them and show the school that we are serious about playing and that this is a good move for the school.

This is the last think I can think of that could get us a team. I know a lot of us have put in a lot of effort and I know that I wouldn’t be comfortable knowing that I didn’t do all I could to make this work.

-Matt

[JR: Seems like there needs to be some fundraising? I have no idea what the gap is. But, it would seem that it wouldn’t be insolvable if one was motivated.]

Re: Last Ditch Effort

John,

Thanks a lot. Part of it is money, but I feel like a significant part of it is “We just don’t want to do it.” It’s a little infuriating. I can understand where they’re coming from, but we have 25+ guys interested in playing, and we just want to represent MC (and we’re willing to pay our own way, too).

Thank you,

Matt

John Frank Azzariti Danbury, CT Naples, FL

John Frank Azzariti, 56, of Danbury, CT and Naples, FL, husband of Kathleen (Maroney) Azzariti, took the Lord’s hand on Saturday, December 13, 2008 after unexpectedly taking ill at his home. John was born to Frank and Frances Azzariti on January 25, 1952 in the Bronx, NY and was the younger brother of Gaetano (Guy) Azzariti. He attended Stepinac High School in White Plains, received his B.S. from Manhattan College in 1973 and always remained an active and staunch supporter of his alma maters. John relocated to Danbury in 1973 after marrying his high school sweetheart, Kathie. The couple raised two beautiful daughters in Danbury, each of whom now reside in White Plains with their husbands and children, who were John’s greatest joy, and formed the foundation of “Pop Pop’s” dynasty; Kimberly and Jonathan Baumstark, their sons, William and Nathaniel and their daughter, Francesca; and Kara and John Gally and their son, John. An ideal husband and father and beloved patriarch, John’s family was the single greatest source of pride and fulfillment was his family.

A CPA and partner at the accounting firm of KPMG, John was a testament to hard work, determination and loyalty. He began his 36 year career with the firm in its White Plains office and ascended to his most recent position as managing partner of the Stamford practice. As part of his innumerable professional accomplishments, John was especially proud of his work as a mentor for his “team” and enjoyed nothing more than helping others to succeed – both professionally and personally. Alongside being the consummate family man and professional, John was very active in the community. He served as chairman of the board of directors of the Danbury Hospital Development Fund, helping to raise significant funding for hospital programs, and also sat on the boards of directors of The Business Council of Fairfield County, the Greater Danbury Chamber of Commerce, the United Way of Stamford and the Connecticut Business and Industry Association. He was a member of the Steering Committee of the Ancell School of Business of Western Connecticut State University as well.

John was a long standing member and served on the board of directors at the Ridgewood Country Club, where he spent countless weekends golfing and enjoying the company of his family and friends. In more recent years, John and his family treasured time spent at their second home in Naples, FL.

While words cannot convey how sorely John Azzariti will be missed by the many that he touched in life, he was and will remain an inspiration to us all as husbands, brothers, fathers and friends.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Gregory the Great Church on Friday at 11:00 a.m. Interment will follow in Mount Calvary Cemetery, White Plains, NY.

Friends will be received at the Green Funeral Home, 57 Main Street, Danbury, CT on Wednesday and Thursday from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Danbury Hospital Development Fund, 24 Hospital Avenue, Danbury, CT 06810.

PRESS RELEASE

SentriLock Names John L. Heithaus as Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing and NVAR’s CEO Christine M. Todd to Board of Directors

Two Key Executive Appointments Strengthen the Company’s Growth and Market Influence

Last update: 12:27 p.m. EST Dec. 17, 2008

CINCINNATI, Ohio, Dec 17, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) — In just five years, SentriLock ( http://www.sentrilock.com), a leading provider of electronic lockboxes to the real estate industry, has seen its client roster increase to 200 REALTOR(R) Boards and Associations and more than 200,000 sales agents. But this burgeoning company is not satisfied to sit idle and take for granted this tremendous business growth.

As a result, SentriLock CEO Scott Fisher has named two highly respected real estate industry veterans to its growing team of professionals: John L. Heithaus as Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, and Northern Virginia Association of REALTORS(R) CEO Christine M. Todd as the newest members of the company’s board of directors.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have John join our executive team where he will use his nearly three decades of real estate industry experience to guide our sales and marketing efforts,” Fisher said. “And the appointment of Christine Todd to our board of directors demonstrates SentriLock’s national respect. Her appointment and is a reflection of our ongoing commitment to bring in some of the industry’s best minds to assist us in creating innovative products that exceed the expectations of real estate professionals.”

Fisher added: “Both John and Christine will work to advance SentriLock’s growth as we continue on our record-setting pace.”

Heithaus said, “I’m really excited to be leading SentriLock’s Sales and Marketing team and to be associated with this industry-leading, American-built product and company.”

In fact, SentriLock has been rated the number one lockbox provider in four out of five key areas for two years running, according to a national survey of MLS and Association Executives. SentriLock was tops in lockbox product, service, system and overall satisfaction. Unlike any other lockbox system, the REALTOR (R) Lockbox NXT product contains “smart” technology (such as an electronic keypad) built into the box that is combined with smart-card technology.

Heithaus’ 28-year career in residential real estate and relocation spans management and executive positions with Coldwell Banker, Prudential Real Estate and Relocation and Internet startup Monstermoving.com. The majority of his career has been in business development and strategic alliance management. Heithaus and the teams he has led have been widely credited with pioneering mutually beneficial and long-lasting alliances with residential real estate organizations and ancillary service providers. These include: national mortgage programs, home inspection companies and residential closing and title services. In addition, Certified Closing Network, a national closing services firm Heithaus co-founded, was acquired by First American Residential in 2005. Heithaus is a frequent keynote and panel speaker at regional and national industry events.

Educated at Iona College, Manhattan College’s MBA program and Georgetown University’s McDonough Graduate School of Business, he is currently matriculating for a Ph.D. in Organizational Theory and Design from Warren National University.

Bariatric surgery duo rely on relationships to maximize benefits for their patients

Samantha Meinke • glwoman • December 17, 2008 • From Lansing State Journal

*** begin quote ***

It took a very long set of eyelashes to turn Dr. Melissa Richardson and Dr. Mindy Lane into the only female bariatric surgery team in Michigan.

The two were practicing general surgery in Lansing when Lane took a fateful trip to a minimally invasive surgery seminar focusing on bariatric surgery.

{Extraneous Deleted}

Lane convinced Richardson to go to a bariatric surgery conference in Tampa, where they also had a chance to tour Dr. Murr’s practice.

“What sold me was not Dr. Murr, although he is very intriguing,” Richardson says. “It was the patients. Normally, as a general surgeon, you have a patient come in to have a gallbladder taken out, you take it out and you never see them again. But with this surgery, patients come in and they’re miserable. They have like eight medical illnesses. They don’t feel good about themselves. They don’t leave their homes. I love to see them transform into the person they really want to be. It’s amazing to see the medical illnesses fade away and their true personalities come to the surface.”

Lane and Richardson, who were already practicing medicine in a Lansing group with six other surgeons, decided to go to Ohio State for a mini-fellowship in bariatric surgery.

During their training, they realized that for bariatric surgery to work, patients need a lot of support in pre-operative and post-operative programs.

They wanted to do the surgeries exclusively at Ingham Regional Medical Center, where they perform all their other general surgery, so they worked to set up a bariatric program there. It took a year and half before they performed their first surgery.

“At the hospital, there was a big push to move it forward, move it forward,” Lane says. “We were like, ‘Listen, no, not until it’s right.’ “

Lane and Richardson established their own practice in 2006, and it wasn’t long before they realized they wanted to take control of the entire bariatric program.

“The year and a half the program was based at Ingham we did maybe 30, maybe 40 cases,” Richardson says. “They were just trickling in.”

The two expanded their practice to incorporate the bariatric program in a new office space in May of 2008.

Their program requires patients to go through an educational seminar and six weeks of pre-surgical education and health evaluations before they even meet the doctors. Patients meet with a dietitian, behaviorist, nurse and psychologist right in the surgeons’ office. And they’re required to follow up with the doctors for at least five years after surgery.

“Anybody can do the surgery, but that’s not going to make for a successful program,” says Dr. Eugene Lavaroni, an attending vascular physician who trained both Richardson and Lane at Botsford Hospital in Farmington Hills. “The patient will fail. In their program, they take care of the whole patient and don’t just act as technicians.”

Both Lane and Richardson say it’s important to bond with their bariatric patients.

One way they do it is by asking patients to write a personal letter when they begin their pre-surgical health screenings and education.

“It’s the only way for us to get to know you as a person before you become our patient,” Lane says. “Some of these letters, seriously, you get goosebumps… They’ll say things like, ‘I have children, and I can’t go on the rollercoaster with them.’ Or, ‘I’ve been made fun of since I was in second grade because I was always the fat girl. This means everything to me.’ It’s powerful, and it’s emotional, and it lets us see beyond their skin before we get involved with them.”

They also take a photo of new patients and save it to show them after surgery.

“When they come back in a year or two I get their letter out or I open up their old picture, and they’re just like, ‘Wow. Oh God, put that picture away,’” Richardson says. “And it’s fun to look back at their letter and all the things they wanted to do before surgery and they’ve done all of those things already.”

Both surgeons are involved with every bariatric case, alternating who the patients see to ensure they get the benefits of both doctors and their different styles.

“Patients demand Melissa’s time,” says her husband, Dr. Dan Richardson. “They call her at home when she’s not ready to be interrupted. And she’ll take 10 minutes out of her day to talk to them. … A lot of doctors don’t take the time to talk to patients or pray with them. But she does. She’s approachable.”

“I’ve referred a lot of patients to Mindy, and they’ve told me she’s very good in the office,” says Dr. Grace Gibbs, a local OB/GYN who did a surgical rotation under Lane as an intern at Ingham. “She’s very confident. And she’ll tell you how it is, even if you don’t want to hear it. She’ll tell you if you’re too fat and you’ve got to lose weight for your health. Sometimes it’s important for a doctor to be that way so patients know how serious a situation is.”

{Extraneous Deleted}

Richardson, on the other hand, knew at an early age she wanted to be a surgeon.

“Originally I wanted to do orthopedic surgery because I played a lot of sports when I was younger, and had a lot of injuries that required orthopedic surgery,” she says.

She went to Manhattan College on a basketball scholarship. She went on to earn an MBA from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia and a D.O. from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, where she decided to become a general surgeon.

{Extraneous Deleted}

Richardson’s husband, Dan, is an emergency room doctor at Botsford. They live in Okemos with their 7-year-old twins.

“We’ve been married 11 1/2 years and I don’t know that we’ve ever had a fight,” Dan says. “We’re boring. We’re consistent. … We schedule things to make it work. Her schedule is much more set than mine, so I work a lot of afternoons, and she’ll be pulling in as I’m pulling out. … Right now the kids are important – especially with twins, because you only go through things once.”

Dear John,

The NY Times of 12/17 at page A35 has an article about Brother Brian’s success with his alternate school – De La Salle Academy – and its predecessor. It also relates that one of his former students was killed on Flight 103 when it was blown up over Scotland in 1988. When the students Mother died she left $2,470,000 , a significant potion of the settlement that Libya paid to the families of the victims of the disaster, to Brother Brian’s school.

A few years back Brother Bryan spoke at The Manhattan College and Businessmen’s annual retreat. He is a very dedicated and inspiring man.

The Long & Foster Companies Appoints Eastment as Vice Chairman

RISMEDIA, Dec. 19, 2008-P. Wesley Foster, Jr., founder, chairman, and CEO of the Long & Foster Companies, announced the promotion of George T. Eastment, as vice chairman of The Long & Foster Companies, comprised of Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc., one of the largest, privately owned real estate companies in America, Prosperity Mortgage Company, Long & Foster Insurance Agency, Inc., and Long & Foster Settlement Services.

Eastment has been president of Long & Foster’s Financial Services since 2004. Prior to that, he served as executive vice president from March 1996 to December 2003.

He was promoted to financial vice president in 1977 and senior vice president in 1982.

Comment on JEmail: Matt Coyne, Matt (MC2011) having trouble with the powers that be by David Ellison

Student Activities has a million-dollar budget and continually — with the powers of student government — do not represent what the students want and stand for.

All these guys want is an ice rink to play at with some insurance. They’ve been willing to practically find the whole thing. They’re eager to just play some hockey, a sport that used to be at Manhattan College.

I dont understand why time and time again the administration at the school does not listen to its students on the things they desire. Part of it, is the weakness we call student government that does a poor job representing the people (what else is new).
