POSITRACTION: No one should be alone on their final trip



Facebook sends strangers to funeral

February 25, 2013

This sad story with a beautiful ending has demonstrated the human capacity for generosity and selflessness.

# - # - # 

One of the corporal works of mercy is to bury the dead?

I hope that Jasper Obits are seen in that light.

Nothing sadder for me than to see our fellow alums pass and mine is the only entry in their "guestbook".

Some have pages of entries as testimony to their impact; many have but one.

Social media has the potential to rally us to our better nature.

In this case, an old vet was not alone on that last sad trip.

In my childhood, I remember Brother Principal would get a call from the Pastor for some "help". Whoever was on Brother's "special list" would be escorted over to attend a funeral Mass where there were only a few people. (I think Pastor's standard was a dozen. Because Brother Principal would bring a dozen.) Pastor would wait for us to arrive, apologize for the delay, while taking the blame himself. (His standard excuse was he mislaid his reading glasses. Which was reported as a white lie by the altar boys.) I guess I pulled this punishment duty often because I was always on that list for one reason or another!

In any event, I hope this story inspires us to remember the old folks.

Memories of a lifetime: Local man used to play Globetrotters

Campion spent 8 years with Washington Generals battling famous team.

January 26, 2009

By John Hartsock, jhartsock@altoonamirror.com

*** begin quote ***

For the past eight decades, the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters have entertained basketball fans with their exhilarating combination of eye-opening talent and side-splitting, hilarious antics.

The Globetrotters almost always win their games, and their most common opponent, the Washington Generals, almost always lose.

But it's not by design that the Generals - a talented outfit in their own right - have come up short in all but a few of the thousands of games they've played against the Globetrotters over the course of nearly a century.

Not at all, maintain former Generals player Bill Campion - who has been living in Altoona for the past 17 years - and the legendary Generals founder and team owner Louis "Red" Klotz, who also spent many years as a player/coach with the organization.

"I've had some great ballplayers with the Washington Generals - I've had six or seven players play in the NBA,'' said the spirited 88-year-old Klotz, who now lives in the Atlantic City suburb of Margate, N.J. "We beat every team we played here and overseas. The only team we've had trouble with is the Harlem Globetrotters. From the day I started with the Generals, I've never told one of my players to do anything but try to win on the basketball court. We compete, and the people who show up to watch enjoy it. When we walk off the court, we always get applauded for playing a good game.''

Even though they're sometimes perceived as cannon fodder for the Globetrotters, who have etched their team name into the archives of basketball immortality.

MNEWS: Loyola gets a break from the fight it started


Manhattan Jaspers, who will be without suspended Mohamed Koita, say they won’t be pushed around by Loyola in MAAC quarterfinals
Loyola is the only MAAC team Steve Masiello has yet to beat in his two years as Jaspers head coach and this will be his final chance as Loyola is leaving the MAAC for the Patriot League next season.
THURSDAY, MARCH 7, 2013, 5:54 PM

*** begin quote ***

"After the game I watched the film and I saw the whole incident," Masiello said. "It's unfortunate because Mohamed Koita could have gotten really hurt. A basketball was thrown at him and he was struck in the head at very close range. There were words at half court between their players and our players and one of their players, and I couldn't make out which one, basically came over and shoved one of our players. It's unfortunate because there is no room for that in college athletics. We want to represent the college in the right way but we're also not going to back down from anyone either. From what I saw our kids didn't provoke anything and I think they showed good restraint. That situation could have got bad in a hurry."

[JR: I don't usually cover sports since GOJASPERS does it with a lot more resources than I have, But in this case, I was there. On scene reporter for Jasper Jottings. Argh! There were only about four other alums there in my best guess. I thought Loyola started it. They are a big physical team; the Jasper men made a nice run at a comeback thanks to the crappy coaching by Loyola, who tried to take the air out of the ball in the second half and almost lost it.]

ENDNOTE: The Holocaust Just Got More Shocking, if such is possible?


The Holocaust Just Got More Shocking
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum/Collection of Eugenia Hochberg Lanceter

*** begin quote ***

THIRTEEN years ago, researchers at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum began the grim task of documenting all the ghettos, slave labor sites, concentration camps and killing factories that the Nazis set up throughout Europe.

What they have found so far has shocked even scholars steeped in the history of the Holocaust.

The researchers have cataloged some 42,500 Nazi ghettos and camps throughout Europe, spanning German-controlled areas from France to Russia and Germany itself, during Hitler’s reign of brutality from 1933 to 1945.

The figure is so staggering that even fellow Holocaust scholars had to make sure they had heard it correctly when the lead researchers previewed their findings at an academic forum in late January at the German Historical Institute in Washington.

*** end quote ***

Anyone who doesn't studied history is doomed to repeat it.


If you wonder why the tin foil hats are crazed about the size and power of Gooferment, read this. Talk to those who have lost their entire families for being scapegoats!

I had that conversation when I was young. I was confused so I talked to my teacher, a Christian Brother, and he told me that not only was it true, but he'd seen it first hand. And, that was one of the reasons he became religious. He talked to the class about it and said that when we disrespect anyone's beliefs were on the same path. Made an impression.

I don't have to agree with you, like you, but I must always respect the Zero Aggression Principle. First do no harm! Because I want the same for myself and every human being.

Even if they believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster as the "Creator".

Hey, they could be right or wrong, that's no reason to disrespect the rights of others.

I remember that as on top of the report cards. (One of the few things I get a good grade in!)

This story tells why it was!
