POSITRACTION: 67 years of love


A daughter keeps her word, as her husband takes it one step further
By Kevin Kelly

*** begin quote ***

Kansas City, Mo., Nov 24, 2011 / 01:19 pm (CNA).- Hollywood used to write love stories like this, but a cynical world stopped believing them.

It was around 2 a.m. on June 9, 1944, when 15-year-old Mary Michler and her friends, who had taken the wrong bus on their way home from the movies, walked into Pops, a Kansas City hamburger joint at 44th and Prospect.

Charles Cahill, was celebrating his high school graduation that night, fell in love. At first glance. For both of them.

“I knew the girl she was with, so I had her introduce me,” Charles said. “I told my best friend the next morning that I met the girl I was going to marry.”

What followed was 67 years of love, not just that between a man and a woman, but also between a father and daughter, that survived through hurt, torment, rejection, before finally coming to a place of acceptance and peace, and love between a people and a church always willing to welcome home.

*** and ***

So he took one more step. Charles told Father Davis that he wanted to join Mary as she resumed her practice of the Catholic faith.

On Sept. 27, 2011, 66 years after they stood before a less-than-sober justice of the peace in Paola, Kan., Charles and Mary Cahill received their sacramental marriage.

On Nov. 6, 2011, Charles Cahill was baptized and confirmed during the 11:15 a.m. Mass, then he for the first time in his life, and Mary for the first time in decades, received Holy Communion.

“It’s wonderful,” Mary said. “It’s been a wonderful life with him, even before I made the promise to my father. And it’s wonderful now.”

[JR: A great story. And, for New Year’s Day, when we get a chance to restart with new beginnings, this has so many lessons for us on many levels. One of which is that you can wait 66 years to get a new start. Dona Nobis Pacem ]

JNEWS: Ward, Emilia (MC2008?) coaching women’s LAX at A-B U


Alderson-Broaddus Reveals New Coach of Women’s Lacrosse Program
Posted: Dec 31, 2011 7:51 PM EST Updated: Dec 31, 2011 7:51 PM EST
By Matt Hauswirth, Anchor/Reporter

A few weeks ago Alderson-Broaddus athletic director Denny Creehan introduced four new coaches for four new programs that the university will be competing in starting next season.

The next sport is Women’s Lacrosse. Emilia Ward joins the Battlers as the new head coach after working at Winthrop University and Adrian College in Michigan.

She played college lacrosse at Manhattan College and brings both coaching and playing experience to the new program.

Even though women’s lacrosse doesn’t have a full conference membership yet, Ward believes by 2013 they will be competing at a national level.

“Hopefully we’ll be in a conference by then. We’re working with a couple of different conferences right now to try and get in, so our hopes are to be in a conference competing for that conference championship. But if not definitely competing for regional births, and everything like that in our third or fourth year of the program,” Ward said.

[JR: This is old news being picked up by the press. But what is new is that she now has her own page on the college's site. This allows alums to contact her.]

A New Year…a New Focus?

*** begin quote ***

At the top of my Christmas list, 1972, were walkie-talkies, and when old St. Nick didn’t deliver the goods, I looked to a New Year’s Eve miracle as my last best hope. The ten-year-old me prayed that the walkie-talkies gift idea had been passed on to my godmother, who turned up on New Year’s Eve every year—an annual tradition—and actually bought me real presents. She was both a generous and kindly woman, and her husband was an incredibly nice man, too—born in Germany with a thick German accent. He couldn’t be my godfather because he wasn’t Catholic, which I thought was silly then as a little boy and even sillier now. He should have been my godfather. Two years later, though, he was gone. A freak accident, and an even more freakish blood clot, took his life at the age of forty-two. Both a good man and a New Year’s Eve tradition ended just like that.

in review

*** begin quote ***

Every year I do a 'year in review' write up + I'm gonna start it now. Just to sum up; this has been a pretty a-mazing year in several ways. Between the traveling, the new friends I have met along the way, the new and exciting experiences I have encountered, and more, I learned more about myself as an athlete than I ever have learned in my life. I have inspired many and some that I’ve been trying to inspire for yrs finally reached out to me, which became one of my highlights of the year. I am here to tell my story of 2011 of the highlights and overviews of each month, what I learned, what I gained, and what brought me to where I am today, and more so, who I am today in this current moment.

[JR: It's a great idea. In writing a bio for my wife, I wish I'd done a summary every day, every week, every month, and every year. Sigh! I recently read a friends "Christmas letter". Terrible concept. TOO easy to be seen bragging. But a good historical collection. I'd suggest everyone do it. Too quickly the details are lost.]

JEMAIL: Orgon, Edward A. (MC1967) wonders about Brill

From: Orgon, Edward A. (MC1967)

Subject: Brill

So what was the charge that got Brill tossed?  Distributing drivel?  LOL. Amazing what garbage college students think possesses any redeeming qualities.

Best regards,

# - # - # 

[JR: No idea. You have to look at this through the lens of an "underground" publication. I remember it. It was "scandalous" at the time. Now too many decades later, the "production quality" was lacking. Maybe that's what it was? Poor execution. Like Zia's "wrong sign". Maybe if there were no typos and strikeouts, it would have been "manhattan college" quality. I know Brother Cronin was incensed at the swipe at the "Virgin Birth". Again, looking back, I can see similarity to Muslim rage at cartoons. Who knows? But it is an interesting part of Jasper / Manhattan Prep lore.]

A Frightening Tale Well ToldSurvivors: A Novel of the Coming Collapse
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

*** begin quote ***

It is my clumsy attempt to formulate an intelligent perspective on the need to know when to share – including sharing work – and when to be self-sufficient. The current public discussion that offers an either-or choice of collectivism versus private property and personal responsibility seems to miss the wisdom and common sense of our forefathers. Whether you do that or not, I thank you for a great read.

Williams, Harry Roger III [MC1970]

[JR: I remember Y2K and ever since then I've been reading Rawles' blog. From time to time, I'm make contributions to it. When I find something worthwhile. You have to read this gem. And, maybe buy some extra beans. Surprising who likes this "bad news". ]

By "Manhattan Jaspers" @ FACEBOOK

Happy New Year Jaspers!

Then, send them to studentactivities@manhattan.edu with a description of where they were taken!

[JR: No idea if this is just for students. How far around the world do students get? Alums can also send their pictures to Jasper Jottings and I'll probably use them as filler. (Always short on content!) Better yet embarrass your fellow alums with THEIR pictures. Rat them out.]

Mark’s right.  Cohalan did the cartoons and a lot of the writing. 

And inside the paper, there’s a long tongue-in-cheek letter from John Straub, MP ’60.

As you say, John, life is possible after getting tossed.  In my case, I worked and travelled for awhile after being expelled.  I got my degree from CCNY, and then went to Stanford for graduate school.  I spent my working years doing software R&D here in California, and I retired a few years ago.

JNEWS: Evangelist, Mary Anne [MC1973] seek Nyack Library BoT Position


Dery, Evangelist Seek Library Positions
Letters of intent from two candidates
By Kevin Zawacki    January 4, 2012
*** begin quote ***

Nyack Library's board of trustees election is approaching, one of the few times each year village residents can affect their local reading room.
Below are brief missives of intent from two of the candidates seeking election.

*** and ***

Mary Anne Evangelist has been a resident of South Nyack and an active community member since moving here from the Bronx with her late husband, Michael Carleo, in 1976. She has served on the Orangetown Board of Assessment Review and the South Nyack Zoning Board, including many years as its chair. She volunteered as a PTA officer on every level as well as Girl Scout and Cub Scout leader as her children moved through the Nyack schools. She volunteered for many years as the cook at the Holy Sprit Café, a soup kitchen formerly housed at St. Ann’s church. Dr. Evangelist  is a member of the steering committee of Friends of the Nyacks, a member of the Friends of the Nyack Library, the Historical Society of the Nyacks, and Edward Hopper House Art Center, where she recently served as a docent for the Hopper exhibit, Prelude. She has also volunteered at the Information Desk in the Nyack Library and maintains the website for Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church in Tappan.

Professionally, Dr. Evangelist has been a teacher, guidance counselor, principal and Assistant Supt. of Schools for over 40 years. Currently, she is an Adjunct Professor at Long Island University’s Orangeburg Campus, and is filling the position of Interim Ass’t. Supt. of Schools in Rye. She holds a BA from the College of New Rochelle, an MA from Manhattan College in Counseling, and a Ph.D. from Fordham University in Education.

"I believe that a public library should be the heart and hub of every thriving community and our library in Nyack has clearly met that expectation for me and for my family," she said. "The Nyack Library is a warm, welcoming place where, as the old TV jingle for Cheers offered, ‘…everybody knows your name’.  At the same time it has grown and evolved into a state of the art facility that comfortably reflects the technology and information needs of the 21st century."

"I would hope to make a contribution to the Nyack Library through service on Board as a result of my direct experiences with libraries as a principal; as a manager of both people and facilities; experience with budget  development and administration; and extensive work in the area of interpersonal relations. I would also commit to listening to the community so that decisions which shape the future of the Library reflect the thoughts and desires of those it serves."
"I have a favorite child’s quote that I think captures best what I value most about what the library is… and what it can be. It goes something like this" 'Books let me see the world when my mother won’t even let me cross the street.'"

*** end quote ***

Living the Mission: The New Arches Program
Posted on January 04, 2012

For freshmen, the hardest part of starting college is often the uncertainty of leaving home for the first time, living with a stranger, and battling college-level courses. As a way to help with the transition, Manhattan College launched the Arches learning and living program this year. The program provides students with the opportunity to reside and attend classes together, as well as participate in service-learning experiences and cultural events.

MNEWS: MC draw prospective buyers?


Living In | Fieldston, the BronxIn the City, but Not of It
Published: January 6, 2012

*** begin quote ***

Fieldston is considered a section of Riverdale, along with North Riverdale, Central Riverdale, South Riverdale and Spuyten Duyvil. But there is an important distinction: it is privately owned.

In practice, that means an entity called the Fieldston Property Owners’ Association, rather than the city, maintains streets and sewers. Also, in addition to the city’s 50th Precinct, the area is policed by a private security patrol; it issues passes for parking on the street. These services cost homeowners an annual fee of a few thousand dollars over and above city property taxes (the specific amount is pegged to lot size).

On the edges of the area are three elite private schools: Horace Mann, Ethical Culture Fieldston and Riverdale Country. Manhattan College is also on the border. It is the schools more than anything, Mr. Trebach and other real estate agents say, that draw prospective buyers.

ENDNOTE: Result, a healthy baby boy


Health Teen Succumbs to Cancer After Stopping Treatment to Deliver Healthy Baby Boy
Posted on December 27, 2011 at 7:36pm by Liz Klimas

*** begin quote ***

POCATELLO, Idaho (TheBlaze/AP) — This is not the storyline you may expect in the case of teen pregnancy. Jenni Lake gave birth to a baby boy the month before her 18th birthday, though she was not destined to become just another teenage mother.

While being admitted to the hospital, she pulled her nurse down to her at bed level and whispered into her ear. The nurse would later repeat the girl’s words to comfort her family, as their worst fears were realized a day after Jenni’s baby was born.

“She told the nurse, ‘I’m done, I did what I was supposed to. My baby is going to get here safe,’” said Diana Phillips, Jenni’s mother.

[JR: You have to just marvel at humans. Facing her own mortality, she chose to give her child the chance for life. Now, I don't know what's right and wrong. I'm sure my fellow alums would know better than I. Pre-marital sex, bad. Killer cancer, bad. Motherless child, bad. imho Life, good. I'm not a great ethicist, just a fat old white guy injineer who will say a prayer tonight for Mother and Child. And, all who have taken that final journey. I think, in the end, the girl / woman did her best in a tough situation. Hope I never find myself in such. I need little challenges; commensurate with my limited abilities. I'll leave the heroic choices, challenges, and labors to the real heros. My fellow alums.]
