POSITRACTION: The final harvest for friend

Farmers bring in final harvest for friend who died in accident
Discussion in ‘General Discussion’ started by stg58, Wednesday at 2:05 PM.

*** begin quote ***

When a fellow farmer died in an accident in his fields two years ago, Arthur Green was among dozens of farmers who gathered to bring in his final harvest.

On Wednesday many of those same farmers gathered at Green’s Racine County homestead to do the same for him.

Green, 64, was killed on Friday when heavy winds toppled a 51-foot auger onto him as he worked on his Yorkville dairy farm. A longtime member of the Racine County Fair Board and active in Four H., Green was well-known and respected among farmers in his county and beyond.

“Art would be the first guy to help anybody,” Kansasville farmer Eugene Mills said as he and others awaited their assignments outside the Green family’s modest home on Highway C. “We all know that this could happen to any one of us.”

*** and ***

By days end, the army of semis is expected to transport some 35,000 bushels of grain to nearby DeYoung’s grain company, who closed for the day so he could take in the Green family’s crops exclusively.

*** end quote ***

Not everything requires the Gooferment or coercion.

The “society” is voluntary cooperation.

Notice how peaceful this is.

Like an Amish barn raising.

Now if we didn’t have welfare and “welfare farmers” to pay for, imagine how much more could be done?

Staten Island Advance By Staten Island Advance
on November 28, 2014 at 6:12 PM, updated November 28, 2014 at 6:18 PM

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — George Hiotis, 66, of New Dorp, a retired deli worker, died Tuesday at home.

Born in Manhattan, Mr. Hiotis settled in New Dorp in 2005.

Mr. Hiotis worked for more than 20 years as a counter/deli worker at Mitola’s in Livingston, N.J., before retiring in 2012.

He had been working for the last six months as a deli employee at ShopRite in New Dorp.

A graduate of a Manhattan college, Mr. Hiotis enjoyed playing golf, taking trips to Atlantic City and playing the lottery. He also liked football and was an avid Mets fan.

“He was a humble, selfless, loving gentleman; an angel went back to heaven,” said his longtime companion, Sharon Garzetta.

In addition to Sharon, surviving are two brothers, Michael and Steven.

A funeral service will be Monday at 2 p.m. in the Hanley Funeral Home, New Dorp. Arrangements include cremation.

The McGrath family will continue its Thanksgiving tradition by again running in the Turkey Trot in remembrance of Dr. Mickey McGrath, a long-time runner of the race until his passing in 2010. The family will wear the same colored T-shirt, complete with a handlebar mustache logo, Dr. Mickey McGrath’s trademark.

*** begin quote ***

For as long as he can remember, the Troy Turkey Trot has been a Thanksgiving tradition for Mike McGrath and his family.

They all came out to run.

Every Thanksgiving, no matter the weather, no matter what else was happening in their respective and mutual lives, the McGrath family came out to run the Turkey Trot.

That group included Mike’s father, Mickey McGrath, a Lansingburgh native who was multi-sport athlete at Catholic Central before becoming one of the area’s most popular doctors and influential personalities in the North Central community.

When Dr. McGrath passed away, after a battle with ALS, in 2010 the McGrath family made a decision; they would continue to run the Turkey Trot but they would run it with one very specific thought in mind; to honor Mickey.

John Joseph Stack
(July 4, 1920 – November 28, 2014)

STACK, John Joseph (JJ), formerly of Yonkers, NY, Sugarland Run, Va., and Bowie, Md., passed away Nov. 28th in Palm Bay, Fl. He was 94. Born in Yonkers, NY, on July 4, 1920, JJ was the eldest son of Edward Joseph and Della Bridget (Hamilton) Stack. He began his lifetime of travel at an early age, making the long subway trek from home into Manhattan where he attended St. Patrick’s Cathedral school and served as an altar boy. He excelled at sports, including baseball and football, and though drafted by the House of David baseball team, he chose to pursue his education.

JJ was a sophomore at Manhattan College when Pearl Harbor was attacked. He immediately enlisted in the US Navy, and while serving in the Pacific Theater with Navy Squadron VS-61, met and married Nellie Kathleen Bowles working at Maylands Airport, Perth, Australia. They shared an adventuresome life together during his 20-year Navy career. JJ ran air traffic control operations at bases in Bermuda, New York, New Jersey, Kansas and Florida—and Nellie ran everything else. After his Navy retirement in 1962, JJ was a strategic planner at the Washington Navy Yard, a consultant with SAIC at Tysons Corners, and the President of his own defense-contract company, Cèilidh.

During their happy, 40-year marriage, JJ and Nellie raised 11 children while traveling the world. Together, they introduced their brood to western living—that is, in Western Australia and the west of Ireland.

With Nellie’s sudden death in 1981, JJ faced his toughest times. But sustained by his Roman Catholic faith, he showed his children that life is to be lived. He shared his mother’s passion for the Sport of Kings, and during the 1990s raced his thoroughbred horse Sports Career at area racetracks. In 1991, JJ married Barbara Knowles, now of Washington, D.C. While they called St. Simon’s Island, Ga., home, they traveled across the US and in Europe and Asia. JJ spent his final years with his son William Stack in Palm Bay, Fl.

JJ is predeceased by his brothers Joseph and William Stack and his sisters Theresa Peel, Kathleen Blinn and Margaret Stack. He is survived by his wife Barbara Stack of Washington, D.C. and his children: Bridget Gingrow of Lancaster, Pa.; Mike Stack of Fairfax, Va.; Robert Stack of Virginia Beach, Va., William Stack of Palm Bay, Fl., Maureen Sappéy of Chestertown, Md., Peggy Vaughn of Frederick, Md., Patricia Stack of McLean, Va., Joseph Stack of Wilmington, N.C., Edward Stack of Chestertown, Md., Teresa Hunter of Clemmons, N.C., and Mickey Stack of Arlington, Va. JJ was devoted to his 24 grandchildren and a great-grandfather to 11. He was beloved by many nieces, nephews and friends in the US, Australia and Ireland.

A Time of Visitation is scheduled 10:00 am to 11:00 am on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at the Colonial Funeral Home, 201 Edwards Ferry Rd, NE, Leesburg, VA 20176. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at noon on Dec. 9, 2014 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, 750 Peachtree St, Herndon, VA 20170. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the William Childs Hospice House, 381 Medplex Parkway, Palm Bay, Fl. 32907 at http://www.health-First.org

Perhaps, the time at MC was both formative and important to our comrade. And, imho, WW2 interrupted many plans. A good many who went never came back and maybe those that did had new priorities.]

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) has Prayer Request / Prayer Of Thanks

2014-Dec-05

Good Evening All,

John Reinke, Jasper Jottings, tells us of a young relative and friend. Ed, a young Father and Husband has been in our prayers before. Our prayers are requested for Ed who will be going in on December 11, 2014 for what is expected to be a minimally invasive heart bypass procedure that will last two hours. Ed will be at Einstein Hospital. We pray that the Surgeon’s hands are quided by God’s hand for a successful outcome with no complications. Please keep Ed and his Family in your prayers that all goes as they pray for. I believe that Ed is related to Pete Sweeney but I wanted to get this request out before checking with Pete.

Mike McEneney tells us that Cathie is home now and continues to make good progress. Breathing is still not at a proper level but there is improvement their as well. A prayer of thanks is in order and we are happy to have Cathie and Mike both home again. Thank you. God Bless.

Phil Colon

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

[JR: Ed is son-in-law to Andrew Joyce ’64. Andrew is married to Cathy, who happens to be both Pete ’64 and my cousin. The Moms of Cathy, Pete, and I are all sisters. Pete’s Mom Dorothy is the last surviving sister. Pete’s Dad just celebrated his 95th birthday. So, Pete will be attending Jasper basketball games for a long time to come. Laugh! ]

Tom was a former–and distinguished–Student Government President at a pivotal time.   He was also may attorney and a friend. Amazing that someone one knows is eulogized by a former secretary of state accompanied by a former President.   The crowd was huge–much larger than quoted in the article.  I was at the church and the reception afterwards.    There were many, many people, lots of cars, closed roads and a large police presence to direct the mourners. Tom’s death was page one in all the local papers.  Thought you would like to know. Bill

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Petrone, Louis S. “Key West Lou” (MC1957) on a life change

2014-Dec-06

FROM a blog post from Petrone, Louis S. “Key West Lou” (MC1957)

LIFE CHANGES RAPIDLY
Posted on December 6, 2014 by keywestlou

*** begin quote ***

I am down this morning. I just heard about a dear friend in Utica. Her husband e-mailed me. She has been diagnosed with cancer. Everywhere. Breasts, lungs and spine. Plus a mass in the pelvic area larger than a softball. The doctors are still testing to determine if the mass is cancerous.

A sweet woman. Never hurt a soul. Her husband my best friend.

In a split second, the world turns. Life changes.

*** end quote ***

Sad when “bad things” happen to good people.

(I always say tongue in cheek with a wry smile that I have a long list of villains deserving of such. Luck for the world, I’m not in charge of anything but me. And, I’d never wish ANYONE ill. Karma. But still … …)

I’m forwarding this along to Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) for the prayer list.

Hope all the readers can spare some good thoughts for this lady, her family, and friends like a down “keywestlou”.

ADMINISTRIVIA: My Jasper wiki was hacked

http://manhattancollegejaspers.blunderingalong.com/index.php?title=Main_Page

My Jasper Wiki was hacked by Chinese hackers.

So I nuked it.

I’m planning to recreate it since I’m on vacation.

I had a vision of an open source Jasper “Green Book”.

I got the idea from Wikipedia’s rejection of my Fandel article.

Anything they reject, I was planning to put there.

Argh!

Oh well, that which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.

I need something to keep the Alzheimer’s away.

Any contributions are welcome. Wikipedia is a pretty easy tool.

I’m going to have to figure out why I was hacked.

Argh!

QUADRANGLE: “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” on the Quad

Photo Gallery: Civil Rights Read-Aloud On the Quad
The Quadrangle by Sean Sonnemann

*** begin quote ***

On Friday afternoon, students and faculty gathered on the quad to read selections from civil rights documents, most notably Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” The event was organized following the recent court decisions involving the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO and Eric Garner on Staten Island, NY. The lack of indictments in both cases has ignited protest related to police brutality and racial discrimination across the country.

*** end quote ***

Sad that the crowd was so sparse.

And, on a technical note, it wasn’t “court decisions”, but “Grand Jury” decisions.

I would decry “police militarization” rather than “police brutality”.

I’d also cite “racial division for political and personal profit” rather than “racial discrimination”.

We can do better.

ENDNOTE: Why not prosecute ALL straw purchasing charges?

2014-Dec-06

WELFARE TERRORISTS: Arrested NBP Members Couldn’t Buy Bomb With Depleted EBT Card
Posted by Bob Owens on November 27, 2014 at 9:18 am

*** begin quote ***

The FBI arrested two members of the New Black Panthers in Ferguson, Missouri late last week on weapons charges, after they used straw purchases a pair of .45 ACP Hi-Point pistols (one for the other, it seems) and bombs from an FBI informant.

They planned to murder St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch and Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson, and then destroy the iconic Gateway Arch in St. Louis with three pipe bombs.

*** and ***

Sadly, there is little chance that either man will be prosecuted on the straw purchasing charge, which alone could mean a 10-year sentence and a $250,000 fine. The federal government routinely drops gun charges, and only a tiny fraction of them are ever prosecuted. Then again, they’re far more likely to get those charges to stick than the bomb plot, which was likely more of pipe-dream than a viable plot.

Expect for their lawyers to claim some interesting defenses, including entrapment and mental incompetence.

*** end quote ***

Sorry, but the persecuted one guy who bought a gun for his father to get his discount.

That one went to the Supreme Court.

http://legalinsurrection.com/2014/06/supreme-court-affirms-narrow-reading-of-gun-straw-purchase-rules/

*** begin quote ***

The defendant in this case, Abramski, arranged to purchase a Glock 19 for his uncle, Alvarez. Abramski had previously been a law enforcement officer, and it is common practice for law enforcement officers to be able to purchase firearms at a discount to the price generally available to the public.

Although Abramski had been fired from his LEO job two years prior, he retained his police officer identification, and intended to use that ID to purchase the pistol for his uncle at a favorable price.

*** end quote ***

That guy was white!

Sorry, but if you don’t enforce the gun laws on the books, then why pass new ones or gripe for greater controls on legal gun owners.

Argh!
