My primary machine died on July 4th morning. A local shop in Princeton has confirmed it is the power supply. The data should be back tomorrow. Due to Dell and the difficulty of getting a replacement power supply from them, the machine will not be back for two weeks. Your sympathy and patience is solicited.

BYLINE: TOMMY HINE; Courant Staff Writer

The four men were much the same -- baseball caps worn backward, an interest in bows that shoot straight and an eye for pretty women.

They were no different than other male athletes among the 580 competitors who practiced Monday for the World Archery Championships that begin today in the Bronx.

But the three women were different. They wore shawls across their shoulders and their heads were covered with scarves. Yet, they also had an interest in the bow.

The group wearing a mixture of contemporary Western and traditional Middle Eastern dress was an Iraqi archery team preparing to participate in the first international competition to include Iraqis since bombs began to fall on Baghdad four months ago.

"Today is the first time we practiced in more than a year," said Afrah Abas, who wore a white shawl and blue scarf. "Just participating here is our No. 1 goal right now. We've been out of touch for a while."

More than a year ago, before their Olympic committee was disbanded and their government left in shambles, the Iraqis were invited to the world championships by the International Archery Federation. But only recently did they truly believe they would see New York.

"We planned to participate before all that happened," Mohammad Fayadh said. "Between the Iraqi and U.S. people, there are no grudges. That's a political picture. We were just hoping we'd be here."

Their trip to the States wasn't easy.

"There are no direct flights between Baghdad and New York," Fayadh said. "We drove 12 hours to Amman, Jordan, by car. Our flight took 14 hours more."

They arrived in New York on Friday and will visit Washington and California before going home.

"We've been treated well," said Fayadh, who competes with his three male teammates and helps coach the three women. "People have done anything to help make us be comfortable.

"The people here have given us a little bit of attention. We can't thank them enough."

The Iraqis, like most other archers, stay in dorms at Manhattan College. Bows and arrows in hand and their equipment bags on their shoulders, they take the short walk from Van Cortland Park across Broadway to the dorm, then return after lunch.

"The only problem has been food," Fayadh said. "The people forget we don't eat pork."

Pizza was their meal of choice Monday night.

Compared with the high-tech bows used by athletes from most of the 79 other countries, the Iraqis' equipment is meager. They don't use or even own telescope mounts to check the accuracy of their shots, and many of their new arrows were donated by organizers after they arrived.

Their biggest problem Monday was retrieving arrows that missed and landed well beyond their intended targets.

"Iraqis have suffered a lot in sports," said Said Baho, an Iraqi-born New Yorker who has worked in restaurants and driven limousines in the city for more than 30 years. "The Iraqi athletes have suffered for years and years and years."

Baho watched the Iraqi archers practice. The night before, he had helped Abas when she had trouble phoning home.

Fayadh, Amer Metab and their two other male teammates alternated shots at target No. 49, flanked by archers from Bhutan and Turkey. The four men stopped briefly to flirt with two female competitors from Lebanon. They joked with a coach from Sri Lanka. At one point, Metab opened his Adidas equipment bag, pulled out a prized book and proudly showed it to a coach and archer from Turkey. At Monday's opening ceremonies, the Iraqis received one of the loudest ovations.

Dressed in green shorts and a white team shirt, Fayadh was very proud of the archer embroidered on his jersey.

"That's Ashour Banibal," Fayadh said. "He was the ruler of Iraq more than five thousand years ago. Archery is one of our oldest competitions. Iraq has always used arrows and bows.

"Another Iraqi ruler four thousand years ago paid soldiers who used bows and arrows double what he paid everyone else."

As he talked, Fayadh and his male teammates helped the three women string their bows. They seemed like a close-knit bunch.

"We're all from Baghdad," Fayadh said. "There was a lot of bombing damage to a lot of houses, but our families and our houses survived the war."

As Fayadh talked, Iraqi-born Abdel Muqbel of the Bronx commented on his thoughts.

"This is good," Muqbel said. "After the war, sports can heal the wounds. This is the beginning."

They've given up summer jobs, trips to the beach and, in most cases, their own beds.

The Gastonia Grizzlies have given up their summer break from college to play baseball. And because most players aren't from Gastonia, many needed a free place to stay this summer. The team can't put them up at hotels because that would violate players' amateur collegiate status. So, instead, the Grizzlies organization tries to find families for the players.

"For a league like ours, having host families is essential," said Gastonia General Manager Clay Battin. "Without them, we couldn't function."

Several families that hosted players last year, Gastonia's first in the CPL, signed on to do it again this year.

Joe and Marjorie Volk saw an ad Battin placed in the Caromont Hospital newsletter recruiting host families.

"Our house is set up where we live on the second floor, and there's plenty of empty space downstairs," said Joe Volk. "We kicked around the idea for a while, called for some information and finally decided to do it."

The Volks will have first baseman Chris Gaskin, a rising junior at Manhattan College in New York. With four sons, the Volks are used to having a house full of young men.

"He's very polite and well-mannered, and we trust him completely," said Joe Volk. "He's got a key to the house. If he gets hungry, he knows he can come upstairs and check out the fridge."

While Gaskin has the run of the entire first floor at the Volks', three Southern University athletes have spent their summer learning how to share Mike and Peggy Heily's home with the couple's two sons, ages 7 and 9.

The Heilys are hosting Southern pitchers Vince Davis and Ronald Moore this season. A few weeks ago, when the players' teammate Josh LeBlanc was picked up by the Grizzlies, the Heilys agreed to let him stay with them, too.

"This is my first time ever living with another family like this," LeBlanc said. "Vince and Ronald kind of gave me a heads-up on what to expect. It's a home away from home, basically. I respect them (the Heilys) as if they were my own parents."

Peggy Heily says having the three athletes around has been fun for her sons.

"I'm sure they're in awe of them. They're always doing something together," she said, adding that Moore was outside teaching her sons how to pitch.

"We told them when they got here to just be a part of our family. It's been a great experience."

Mayor of NYC –1993-2001

The 700 Club

July 14, 2003

The former mayor of New York City talks to Pat Robertson about his mayoral accomplishments of successfully fighting crime and playing a key role in serving his city during 9-11. He also shares about his latest book, Leadership. – ( – In 1944, Rudolph W. Giuliani was born to a working class family in Brooklyn, New York. As the grandson of Italian immigrants, Mayor Giuliani learned a strong work ethic and a deep respect for America's ideal of equal opportunity. He attended Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School (Class of '61) in Brooklyn, Manhattan College (Class of '65) in the Bronx and New York University Law School in Manhattan, graduating magna cum laude in 1968.

Upon graduation, Rudy Giuliani clerked for Judge Lloyd MacMahon, United States District Judge for the Southern District of New York. In 1970, Giuliani joined the office of the U.S. Attorney. At age 29, he was named Chief of the Narcotics Unit and rose to serve as executive US Attorney. In 1975, Giuliani was recruited to Washington, D.C., where he was named Associate Deputy Attorney General and chief of staff to the Deputy Attorney General. From 1977 to 1981, Giuliani returned to New York to practice law at Patterson, Belknap, Webb and Tyler.

In 1981, Giuliani was named Associate Attorney General, the third highest position in the Department of Justice. As Associate Attorney General, Giuliani supervised all of the US Attorney Offices' Federal law enforcement agencies, the Bureau of Corrections, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the US Marshals.

In 1983, Giuliani was appointed US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, where he spearheaded the effort to jail drug dealers, fight organized crime, break the web of corruption in government, and prosecute white-collar criminals. Few US Attorneys in history can match his record of 4,152 convictions with only 25 reversals.

In 1989, Giuliani entered the race for mayor of New York City as a candidate of the Republican and Liberal parties, losing by the closest margin in City history. However in 1993, his campaign focusing on quality of life, crime, business and education made him the 107th Mayor of the City of New York. In 1997 he was re-elected by a wide margin, carrying four out of New York City's five boroughs.

As Mayor, Rudy Giuliani returned accountability to City government and improved the quality of life for all New Yorkers. Under his leadership, overall crime went down 57% and murder was reduced 65%.

New York City's law enforcement strategies became models for other cities around the world, particularly the CompStat program, which won the 1996 Innovations in Government Award from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. CompStat allows police to statistically monitor criminal activity on specific street corners as well as citywide, holding precinct commanders accountable for criminal activity in their neighborhoods. Because this data is updated constantly, it enables the police to become a proactive force in fighting crime, stopping crime trends before they become crime waves that negatively effect the quality of life for neighborhood residents.

When Mayor Giuliani took office, one out of every seven New Yorkers was on welfare. Mayor Giuliani returned the work ethic to the center of City life by implementing the largest and most successful welfare-to-work initiative in the country, cutting welfare rolls in half while moving over 640,000 individuals from dependency on the government to the dignity of self-sufficiency. In addition, Giuliani enacted a record of over $2.5 billion in tax reductions - including the commercial rent tax, personal income tax, the hotel occupancy tax, and the sales tax on clothing for purchases up to $110. In addition, hundreds of millions of dollars were returned to the private sector as a result of the Mayor's aggressive campaign to root out organized crime's influence over the Fulton Fish Market, the private garbage hauling industry, and wholesale food markets throughout the City. These reforms, combined with the fiscal discipline, which enabled the Mayor to turn an inherited $2.3 billion budget deficit into a multi-billion dollar surplus, led the City to an era of broad-based growth. As news of the City's resurgence spread around the nation and the world, tourism grew to record levels.

Mayor Giuliani was committed to nurturing and empowering New York City's children. By creating the Administration for Children's Services, New York City gained an accountable, proactive and effective protector for our City's most vulnerable children that is recognized as a national model. Moreover, New York City has been working every day to find loving families for children requiring adoption. The City has completed a record number of adoptions since 1996 - more than 20,000 - marking a dramatic 65% increase over the previous six-year period. Mayor Giuliani was also a leader in getting health insurance to children through the innovative HealthStat initiative, which uses computer technology to coordinate a citywide effort to enroll children in existing health insurance programs. To date, 96,000 eligible children and families have been given access to health insurance through the HealthStat initiative. These improvements increased hope and opportunity for all New York City's children and laid the foundation for our City to be even stronger in the 21st century.

To turn around the nation's largest urban public education system, Giuliani worked tirelessly to restore accountability and raise standards throughout the City's schools. Bureaucratic roadblocks to meaningful reform such as social promotion and principal tenure ended, while programs such as bilingual education and special education were reformed for the first time in a quarter century. Under the Mayor's leadership, New York City introduced innovative new instructional programs that improve reading skills, give all students access to computers, and restore arts education as a fundamental part of the school curriculum. These successful education initiatives were accompanied by the establishment of 300-book libraries in every classroom and weekend classes for science and English instruction. In October 2000, the Mayor launched the New York City Charter School Improvement Fund, the first fund ever offered by a city government to help charter schools with equipment and facilities costs.

Under Rudy Giuliani's leadership, New York City became the best-known example of the resurgence of urban America. From his success at cleaning up Times Square and other public spaces around the City to closing the Fresh Kills landfill on Staten Island, Mayor Giuliani worked tirelessly to pass New York to the next generation better and more beautiful than it was before he entered office.

IT WAS good to hear that Jill Poe has been appointed head coach for the women's basketball program at St. Francis (Pa.) University.

She takes considerable, varied experience into the position.

Poe, who played basketball at Morgantown's University High and W.Va. Wesleyan College, was the top recruiter and No. 1 assistant coach at Duquesne University the past seven seasons.

Like her well-known sister, WVU sports information director Shelly Poe, Jill also has done some sports writing. And she excelled at that, too.

She's taking over a successful program at St. Francis. It has won the Northeast Conference championship the past three years.

Poe's predecessor left to become head coach at Manhattan College.

Are you OK? Or, did I get dropped, as I haven't received Jottings for 2 weeks in a row.

Copyrighted material belongs to their owner. We recognize that this is merely "fair use", appropriate credit is given and any restrictions observed. The CIC asks you to do the same.

All material submitted for posting becomes the sole property of the CIC. All decisions about what is post, and how, are vested solely in the CIC. We'll attempt to honor your wishes to the best of our ability.

A collection copyright is asserted to protect against any misuse of original material.


Operating Jasper Jottings, the "collector-in-chief", aka CIC, recognizes that every one of us needs privacy. In respect of your privacy, I will protect any information you provide to the best of my ability. No one needs "unsolicited commercial email" aka spam.

The CIC of Jasper Jottings will never sell personal data to outside vendors. Nor do we currently accept advertisements, although that may be a future option.


This effort has NO FORMAL RELATION to Manhattan College!

This is just my idea and has neither support nor any official relationship with Manhattan College. As alumni, we have a special bond with Manhattan College. In order to help the College keep its records as up to date as possible, the CIC will share such information as the Alumni office wants. To date, we share the news, any "new registrations" (i.e., data that differs from the alumni directory), and anything we find about "lost" jaspers.


You may only subscribe to the list, only if you have demonstrated a connection to Manhattan College. This may require providing information about yourself to assert the claim to a connection. Decisions of the CIC are final. If you do provide such personal information, such as email, name, address or telephone numbers, we will not disclose it to anyone except as described here.


Should you wish to connect to someone else on the list, you must send in an email to the list requesting the connection. We will respond to you, so you know we received your request, and send a BCC (i.e., Blind Carbon Copy) of our response to your target with your email address visible. Thus by requesting the connection, you are allowing us to share your email address with another list member. After that it is up to the other to respond to you. Bear in mind that anything coming to the list or to me via my address is assumed to be for publication to the list and you agree to its use as described.

Should some one wish to connect with you, you will be sent a BCC (i.e., Blind Carbon Copy) of our response as described above. It is then your decision about responding.

We want you to be pleased not only with this service. Your satisfaction, and continued participation, is very important to all of us.


Please remember this effort depends upon you being a reporter. Email any news about Jaspers, including yourself --- (It is ok to toot your own horn. If you don't, who will? If it sounds too bad, I'll tone it down.) --- to Please mark if you DON'T want it distributed AND / OR if you DON'T want me to edit it.

I keep two of the “Instant Messengers” up: Yahoo "reinkefj"; and MSN T7328215850.

Or, you can USMail it to me at 3 Tyne Court Kendall Park, NJ 08824.


Feel free to invite other Jaspers to join us by dropping me an email.


Report any problems or feel free to give me feedback, by emailing me at If you are really enraged, or need to speak to me, call 732-821-5850.

If you don't receive your weekly newsletter, your email may be "bouncing". One or two individual transmissions fail each week and, depending upon how you signed up, I may have no way to track you down, so stay in touch.

Don't ask why, but I was "forced" to watch Big Brother 4. I hope nobody knows what i am tacking about. Talk about soft porn! Where is the American moral sense? Blatant sex, partial nudity, wow! Shame on CBS! Shame on us.


And that’s the last word.
