But it wasn’t always this way. There used to be just a few wigs in the oncology office, with no real privacy, making it difficult to enjoy the experience of finding a new look. Since then, Sanford Hospital has provided this room and the American Cancer Society provided the supplies. And Cheryl is well suited for this, being a retired nurse who knows what patients are going through.

“Being a cancer survivor, I know what it’s like to walk into that office. I know what it’s like to sit there and wait for a test, to hear those words. Those are the three most dreaded words in the English language: you have cancer,” says Cheryl Renville, Cancer Care Resource Center.

And no one can really understand unless she’s been through it herself. Cheryl knows what it’s like to go bald during treatment.

“It’s traumatic. That’s the first thing that they say. Am I going to lose my hair? And even with myself, when I had chemo, I was going to be the one that didn’t. I just knew I would be the one who did not lose my hair. Well, that didn’t work, you know. You do lose it because the drugs are so powerful. And hair is a fast growing cell, and so it’s the first one, one of the first ones that chemo kills.”

*** end quote ***

Empathy for our fellow man seems sorely lacking today.

I know people who have serious health, family, or personal issues.

Whenever I think about them, I try to think about what I was given when my wife was sick or failing.

Maybe if we did this more, we’d all be better off.

Ad Hoc Propiter Hoc
Terry McGarty

*** begin quote ***

One can state a counter example for every such success. Take the Koch brothers, MIT grads but with a father who set them up. Then take O’Malley, no father, a Manhattan College grad, and just as successful. Was parental income redistribution the determinant? Hardly, it was competence and drive. I can think of dozens of my MIT MITES minority students, all successful, despite in many cases low income parentage. Then again one can think of the generation who made it, the generation who spent it, and the generation who lost it. Genes go just so far.

Former Saint Mary’s president dies
Alex Friedrich July 25, 2013, 1:22 PM 0

This (lightly edited) announcement from the university:

Saint Mary’s 10th president, Brother Peter Clifford, dies
Clifford (SMU)

Brother Peter Clifford, FSC, the 10th president of Saint Mary’s University, died Tuesday at De La Salle Hall in Lincroft, N.J.

A dedicated educational visionary and financial steward, Brother Peter served as president of Saint Mary’s from 1976 to 1984, and is credited for bringing fiscal security to the college.

Brother Peter also fostered close relationships between Saint Mary’s and the city of Winona by being an active member of the community. During his presidency, he served on the boards of both the Winona Chamber of Commerce and Norwest Bank.

Additionally, he initiated the first graduate course offerings in the Twin Cities and laid the financial groundwork for the Performance Center and the ice arena on the Winona campus.

Brother Peter was born in the Bronx in New York City on Feb. 17, 1925. He graduated from St. Jerome’s School in the Bronx in 1939 and entered the Junior Novitiate of the Christian Brothers in Barrytown, N.Y. He entered to the Brothers Novitiate in 1943, made his first vows in 1944, and made his final vows in 1950.

Brother Peter studied history at Catholic University in Washington, D.C., received his B.A. degree in Education from Manhattan College in 1950, and an M.A. degree in History from Fordham University in 1957. In 1968, he received a CAS degree in Educational Administration from Harvard University. In 1970, he received an Ed.D. degree in Educational Administration, also from Harvard.

Brother Peter’s ministry career was varied. He taught at grammar schools, served as a missionary in the Philippines, acted as the academic dean at De La Salle College in Manila, served as an administrator at a variety of high schools, worked for the Catholic Schools office in Brooklyn, N.Y., and acted as the executive secretary for secondary schools at the National Catholic Education Association.

Brother Peter’s ministry in higher education began as an academic dean at St. John’s University in Jamaica, Queen, before coming to Saint Mary’s.

After the conclusion of his work at Saint Mary’s, Brother Peter served as Provincial of the LINE District of the Brothers of the Christian Schools for three years and for two years as an Assistant in Higher Education for the U.S. Catholic Conference in Washington, D.C. His last college connection was as President of St. Mary’s College in Leavenworth, Kan., from 1989 to 1994.

Brother Peter then became Director of Finance for the LINE District of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. He moved back to Winona in 2000 and worked as a vice president for the Metanoia Group, a consulting enterprise at Saint Mary’s University, until 2002. He then moved back to Rhode Island where he became Assistant to the President of Ocean Tides, a residential center for delinquents, until his illness this year.

A wake for Brother Peter will be held at the Christian Brothers Center in Narragansett, R.I., on Thursday, July 25, and Friday, July 26, 2013. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Christian Brothers Center on Friday, July 26, 2013 at 11 a.m.

Brother William Mann, FSC, President, will represent Saint Mary’s University at the wake, Mass, and burial.

“Brother Peter will be remembered for his unwavering faith, his strong leadership and for establishing a solid financial foundation at Saint Mary’s, enabling us to significantly expand our reach and educational reputation,” Brother William said. “Those who worked alongside Brother Peter will also remember his kindness, generosity and enduring spirit. He will be missed.”

New leadership for St Vincent Strambi High

BY ALICIA SUTHERLAND Observer staff reporter sutherlanda@jamaicaobserver.com

Monday, July 29, 2013

*** begin quote ***

He said that come September, Jamaica will for the first time benefit from “Lasallian” teaching with the coming of two Americans to the St Vincent Strambi High School. They are Brother Augustine Nicoletti, who is to be the new principal and Brother James Wallace, an administrator.

According to Hamilton, their coming is “timely” as the De La Salle teaching style emphasises practical or vocational areas which is a focus of the Ministry of Education.

“They emphasise skills training which is what the country needs,” Hamilton said.

On a recent visit to Jamaica, Nicoletti and Wallace — who are both on secondment from the Manhattan College in New York — told the Jamaica Observer of plans to make an impact during their two-year stint.

“In any setting, you can always [make improvements]. We want to improve the spiritual dimension of the faith community, include some theatre, drama down the road, more opportunities for vocational education; we want to infuse life skills. We want to really teach their (children’s) minds and touch their hearts,” Nicoletti said.

Wallace said that the “aim is to get all students to do well”.

In doing his research, Nicoletti said that he discovered that Catholics are only about three per cent of the Jamaican population. However, he is undeterred.

“I don’t base my life on statistics. [Our work looks beyond] nationality, culture, race,” he said.

The two elderly men said that the commitment that they have to the work that they do will ensure that they do it for as long as they can.

“We love what we do despite tough days,” Nicoletti said.

He said that one of the main tenets of being a Brother is that they live in a community with other Brothers.

During their stay in Jamaica they will live on the school’s compound, which Nicoletti said will enable them to be available to the students all the time even outside of regular school hours. Their reimbursement will be a stipend from the church, Hamilton said.

Hamilton in his report at the school’s recent graduation outlined developments at the institution that the De La Salle Christian Brothers can build on.

JEMAIL: Dans, Peter E. (MC1957) points out a blunder and recommends his book

Hi John:

1. According to the obituary, I believe Dr. Loehr graduated in 1959 the year he entered Cornell Medical School.

2. My book La Salle Military Academy (LSMA) Pro Deo Pro Patria: The Life and Death of a Catholic Military School chronicles its history from its beginning in 1883 to its closure in 2001.

The attachment contains a description, Table of Contents, a copy of the cover and how to purchase it through The LSMA Alumni Association Foundation. LSMA was a feeder school for Manhattan, so some of your readers may be interested in it. It has gotten rave reviews from the alumni from the 1940s on.

Thanks for all your hard work in keeping Manhattan alums together.

JEMAIL: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) shares a picture

Hello All,

I have been trying to get this out to you and this morning my daughter-In-Law, Melissa, got it done for me. It is my favorite picture of our Littlest Jasper, Lukie. It was sent to me by his Mom and it says so much. That smile that lights up a room, his shades which he is obviously very proud of and are very much today and that fighting spirit that this little fellow possesses and always shines through. I am so happy to be able to finally share it with you. Thank you Heidi and Peter. This picture was taken at his Grand Parents 50th Wedding Anniversary which was a beautiful and fun filled occasion. Thank you George and Ann. Thank you. God Bless.

MEMAIL: Miele, John (retiredMCfaculty) finds Jasper Jottings

I don’t know if this qualifies as appropriate material for your Jasper Jottings. A few days ago my son, an alumnus, told us about your website. We checked it this evening and Joe Ripp’s name appeared. I wonder if he was a student of mine way back in the 1970’s. I recall a student named Joseph Ripp as one of my psychology majors. I was a faculty member in the Psychology Department from the 1960’s to 1992 when I retired. I am just curious and struck by the coincidence.

I plan to subscribe to Jasper Jottings as a stimulus for my rapidly shattering memory.

By the way, my name is John Miele.

# – # – #

[JR: Ahh, we have very low standards for what qualities for inclusion. Glad your son turned you on to us. I’ have now idea if there is or has been more than one “Ripp”, but there’s only one that I know. Feel free to share your Alma Mater stories over the years. You’ll have a great “longitudinal” perspective that most of us don’t have. Having spent 9 years at Alma Mater, high school and college, (No, you wags it didn’t take me that long to graduate!) the “MC” of my high school days was quite different from the “MC” of my college years. Welcome, to our slice of “cyberspace”.]

He was currently a resident of Margate City, N.J. The son of John & Gladys Moran was born, in 1925, raised and worked in the Riverdale community of the Bronx in N.Y.C. He was a graduate of Columbia University, class of 1948, he also attended Manhattan College Preparatory School and St. Margaret’s Catholic School in North Riverdale.

He was self employ-ed as a real estate broker working with his father in the firm of John A. Moran and Son primarily in the Riverdale/Kingsbridge communities from 1953 till the time of his passing. He was a devoted Riverdalian with a great love of the neighborhood where he grew up and raised his family. He was very active in support of the growth of Riverdale in many ways both professionally and personally. John and his father sold a large percentage of the land in Riverdale for apartment house sites. He brokered the sale of the Riverdale property to the Russian Mission in 1972.

He had a tremendous love of sports which was not only evident in conversation with him but in his actions also. He was with the North Riverdale Baseball League for over 25 years both on the Executive Board and as a team manager shaping the lives of many of Riverdale’s youth for the future. Even though he contracted Polio as a young child and developed Post Polio Syndrome at a later age he never let it deter him from participating in anything he wanted to do. He dedicated his efforts in Riverdale to assure that families could raise their children in a community that was safe with manageable growth and he served with many organizations to accomplish this.

He was a member of the Community Planning board for 12 years and served on the Land Use Committee. He was on the Board of Directors and Past President of the Riverdale Neighborhood House, Francis Schervier Home & Hospital, Schervier Nursing Care Center Housing Board. He was also a board member of the Riverdale Community Council, the 50th Precinct Community Council and the Kingsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps. In 1972 he was awarded Riverdale Community Council “Man of the Year” and the Francis Schervier Award in 2002.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years Mary (Betsy), his daughter Shelley, his sons and their wives John & Karen, Richard & Elizabeth, Christopher & Amy, 7 grand children and his sister Mary Patricia Baxter.

There will be a private funeral service in New York. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made in his memory to the Autism Speaks Foundation, 1 E. 33rd St., New York, NY 10016, in honor of his grandson, Tommy who was diagnosed in 2004.

Staten Island family members travel to California for 100th birthday celebration
By Carol Ann Benanti/Staten Island Advance
on July 31, 2013 at 1:30 PM, updated July 31, 2013 at 1:38 PM

*** begin quote ***

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Looks like Rose Marino is following in the footsteps of famous folks with names like George Burns, Rose Kennedy, Bob and Dolores Hope, and Elizabeth the “Queen Mum,” just to mention a few.

Let it be noted that the former Rose Navarino officially made her debut into the world on Dec. 29, 1913, making her six months’ shy of her 100th birthday. And word has reached this desk that family members and friends traveled to San Rafael, Calif., June 29 to commemorate Rose’s milestone.

{Extraneous Deleted}

For a number of years the “birthday girl” worked in the laundry of the former Staten Island Hospital in Tompkinsville so that her sons, Frank and John, could attend Manhattan College.

However, in 1993, Rose chose to relocate to San Rafael, where she’s been a popular and beloved resident of Nazareth House — and where copies of the Advance appear so that she can keep abreast of the myriad events on her beloved Island.

Known to all for her quick wit and infectious laughter, the illustrious senior travels the corridors with the assistance of a walker, which carries a sign that reads: “Native Staten Islander … Out of my way!”

Dear John,

Marty was a great baseball player in his day. I remember his father acting as his catcher as he worked out in Van Cortland Park. He was a graduate of Cardinal Hayes High School . When the Schmidt’s moved out of our upstairs apartment, Marty left his bike behind, I still have it!

His sister Ann Marie was a classmate of mine at St Barnabas and she married another classmate, Ed Donegan who is a member of the Class of 1954 at Manhattan.

May He Rest In Peace.

Mike

McEneney, Mike (MC1953)

[JR: Thanks, Mike. Much appreciated. I am sorry for all our loss. Sounds like Alma mater was an “interesting place” in your days. I never met anyone’s sister. Maybe they didn’t trust me? I was always a perfect gentleman!]

Don’t know why that didn’t show up in my automated searches?

But I did catch it from another source.

ENDNOTE: Bust Phony Michigan Homeless Vet

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/19/rudy-fake-homeless-vet_n_3623991.html?show_comment_id=270840704#comment_270840704

‘Producer Joe’ Uses ‘Liar’ Sign To Bust Phony Michigan Homeless Vet, Then Does Something Amazing (VIDEO)
The Huffington Post | By Eleanor Goldberg

*** begin quote ***

But when WGRD caught wind of the scandal, the radio producers there weren’t satisfied with the simple PSA the news outlet had aired. They decided to take matters into their own hands and force the con artist out of his corner.

Producer Joe joined Rudy at his busy intersection with a cardboard sign that read “LIAR” in big blocky red and yellow letters with an arrow pointing in the vet’s direction.

*** end quote ***

Sorry, but defrauding the public is NOT “free speech”.

While it might not be the BIGGEST crime — that’s left for the District of Corruption, the various state capitals, and anywhere politicians meet with crony capitalists — it is FRAUD.

The only possible LEGITIMATE functions of government is to protect The People from force. Fraud is a form of force. Theft by deception.

This particular fraud makes us a cynical nation about private charity.

All charity — to be moral, effective, and efficient — must be private.
