POSITRACTION: Chaplain gets Medal of Honor


Chaplain gets Medal of Honor 62 years after death
Published April 06, 2013
Associated Press

*** begin quote ***

In the cold, barren hills of Korea more than 60 years ago, two teary-eyed soldiers stood in a prisoner of war camp where their chaplain lay dying.

The Rev. Emil Kapaun was weak, his body wracked by pneumonia and dysentery. After six brutal months in the hellish camp, the once sturdy Kansas farmer's son could take no more. Thousands of soldiers had already died, some starving, others freezing to death. Now the end was near for the chaplain.

*** end quote ***

I'd forgotten this one. I'd learned it Grammar School from the Christian Brothers, many of who were vets.

Hard to envision that anyone could do what he did.

Good deeds are never truly forgotten.

JFOUND: DeVaney, Tyler [MC2010] is is listed in good condition

Army Spc. Tyler DeVaney Ohio native, Queensbury grad wounded in battle

Army Spc. Tyler DeVaney, a 2006 graduate of Queensbury High School, was preparing to go on patrol in the Jalrayz District in eastern Afghanistan on the morning of March 11.

As DeVaney and other members of his combat team stood ready to head out, a man in an Afghan National Security Forces uniform climbed on a truck and started firing a machine gun at the soldiers, wounding 10, including DeVaney, and killing two, including one of his friends.

“He was very, very lucky,” DeVaney’s father, Jack, said by telephone Wednesday from Winn Army Community Hospital at Fort Stewart, Ga., where his son is listed in good condition with bullet wounds
to his upper body, thigh and abdomen. “Good luck doesn’t even begin to describe it. It’s an absolute miracle he wasn’t injured more seriously. The doctors said he’s going to be OK, but it’s going
to take a lot of hard work.”

Hospital officials said they hoped DeVaney, who is stationed at the Georgia base, will be discharged soon.
One of the soldiers killed in the attack was Army Staff Sgt. Rex L. Schad, 26, of Edmond, Okla., who, like

“I have a picture of my son with him in my office,” said Jack DeVaney, who is the chief executive officer of Horizon Health Corp. in Texas.

The DeVaney family lived in Queensbury until moving to Coppell, Texas, slightly more than a year ago.
DeVaney, who played baseball at Queensbury according to his father, is a graduate of Manhattan College. Jack DeVaney said his son had initially considered Officer Candidate School but enlisted in February 2011 because the wait for OCS was expected to be at least a year.

Kyle DeVaney said he did not feel up to talking to a reporter on the telephone, but his father said the 25-year-old soldier had the dead and wounded on his mind.

“He’s feeling a lot of remorse,” the elder DeVaney said. “He feels badly about everyone who was killed or hurt.”

According to the Associated Press, Jalrayz District is in Wardak Province, and the shootings were the second incident of an apparent Afghan policeman attacking U.S. troops in two days. The attack
came a day after the deadline the Afghan president had set for American troops to leave the province.

JEMAIL: Toner, Mike (MC1972) takes a stab at understanding the KofC exclusion

Dear CIC,

I'd venture a guess that this is about funding or official recognition as a student organization, not simply allowing students to gather on their own. And I'd bet that an organization called, Catholics for Women's
Ordination that only allowed Catholic men or women or an organization called Liberal Women Chess Players that only admitted liberal women would also be denied the same official recognition or funding.

I'll bet that the bar for this recognition or funding is that anyone who is a student or pays a student activity fee must be allowed to join. Seems fair as long as it is evenly applied.

We have (thankfully) left our Catholic ghettos some time ago.

Though I didn't know him during our time at Alma Mater - RIP my classmate, Bob Gregory.

As always, thanks for your wonderful efforts as CIC and Jottings publisher!!

[JR: Mike, you're much more understanding than I. Maybe I'm just an anti- but I wager that "Catholics for Women's Ordination" would be acceptable under the banner of "inclusion", "political correctness", or "women are immune to criticism". Or, "we just like their cause". Unfortunately "catholic" as a brand is very confused. Something I blame on the Hierarchy and the Laity. We should be asking "How can you call yourself Catholic and … …". Not that I'm any great saint, but I least I don't pretend to be forming young souls. Argh!]

p.s., thanks for the praise, but I'm just a xerox machine. LAFF! Most of the time.

JEMAIL: Delaney, Gerard M. (MC1975) reminds about Aloysius Gonzaga

“The Knights of Columbus, by their very nature, is a men’s organization in which only Catholics may participate via membership,” reads a letter written by Sue Weitz...

Somebody needs to remind Ms Weitz that the Society of Jesus limits membership to Roman Catholic males. If it was good enough for Aloysius Gonzaga, it should be good enough for them.

[JR: Now you have to remember that these are different times. Those dusty old rules are just anachronisms. (pretty big word for fat old white guy injineer). Did you know that the KofC originated Life Insurance? Interesting? Wonder if women could buy insurance? Laff!  ]

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) has some updates

Good Evening All,

An update on John O'Connor. John is now at Cabrini Hospital but there is no word as to how long he will be there but Mike McEneney was told that John sounded good and his voice was strong. If you would like to call John, he will be happy to hear from you. His Cell # is (914) 523 - 8058. Please keep John and his family in your prayers as we pray that the MDs find whatever is wrong and what has to be done to fix it. Thank you. God Bless.

I will ask that you pray for my Son Scott's Mother-in-Law to be. She has suffered some disorientation, memory loss, passing out and such. This is the 2nd time this has occurred in a couple of years. An MRI showed some lesions on her brain which may be old (she suffers from Migrains) and the MDs are looking further as a preventive measure. Netti will be seeing a Neuro-Ophthalmologist as the next step. Please keep Netti and her family in your prayers.

Thank you. God Bless.

JBLOGGER: Petrone, Louis S. "Key West Lou" (MC1957) hangs out with Kelly, Jack [MC1968]



Posted on April 21, 2013 by keywestlou

*** begin quote ***

I finally went out last night. To the Chart Room to begin. Stayed quite a while. Enjoyed some excellent company.

My undergraduate work was done at Manhattan College. I rarely speak of Manhattan. No particular reason. I received a good education at Manhattan from the Christian Brothers. I enjoyed my college years. Much partying.

I realize I speak often of Syracuse. I do feel a very close bond with Syracuse. Not just for the time I spent there. My life since graduation has been intertwined with Syracuse professionally, socially and sportswise. I did not develop such a relationship with Manhattan.

Last night at the Chart Room, I spent considerable time talking with Jack Kelley. A Manhattan graduate! Class of 1968. I graduated in 1957.

Jack was a day hop, I a boarder. We reminisced. It was fun to recall and remember.

Jack went into the Air Force after graduation. Flew jets. Then taught jet training. Retired a major. Worked in industry as a consultant thereafter. Now he is retired as I am.

Jack has a second home in the Keys. Just up the road on Cudjoe Key. He has been at Cudjoe the past few weeks supervising the installation of a pool. Showed me a picture. It is going to be a terrific looking addition to his property when finished.

I enjoyed my time with Jack and trust we shall meet again soon. Most likely at the Chart Room.

Peter shared some of the Jack/Louis time. I felt bad. Once we got into Manhattan College, he was sort of out of the conversation. However, Peter did know where Manhattan was located. 242 Street and Broadway, end of the Seventh Ave line. Very few know that. Peter continues to amaze me.

JNEWS: Tweed, Joseph [MC????] new president of DePaul Catholic High School


DePaul Catholic High School Hires New President
Joseph Tweed has more than a decade of experience in education.
By Daniel Hubbard

*** begin quote ***

A new president of DePaul Catholic High School has been named.

Joseph Tweed will begin his term as the school’s fourth president July 1.

“I could not be more excited about this wonderful opportunity to lead a school the caliber of DePaul,” Tweed said in a statement. “I truly feel blessed by the chance to build on the foundation that Father [Mike] Donovan has established through his passion and leadership.”

Tweed earned a bachelor of arts in political science and a master's of science in Education from Manhattan College. He is a member of The College Board and the National Association for College Admission Counseling. He lives in Montclair.

Tweed has more than 13 years of administrative and teaching experience. He most recently was director of admissions and financial aid and assistant head of the upper school at Ranney School in Tinton Falls.

A search committee recommended to the school’s Board of Trustees that Tweed be hired. Bishop Arthur Serratelli made the final decision to appoint Tweed.

Donovan works for the Archdiocese of Newark. He has been on loan to the Diocese of Paterson, which DePaul belongs to, for his four-year tenure as principal. Donovan has been recalled to serve the archdiocese. He announced earlier this year that he would not be returning for the 2013-14 school year.

JFOUND: Curran, Brother Jack [MC1980] VP of Mission


While at MC in an a different role, Brother Jack was a big supporter of our hoops teams. He was with us on Beale St in Memphis after our Sooner win. Now he is coming back as VP of Mission. Hopefully he will bring some insights regarding how St. Mary's revved up their program.

April 23, 2013

To the Manhattan College Community,

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Brother Jack Curran, FSC, Ph.D., as Manhattan’s next Vice President for Mission. Br. Jack will succeed Brother James Wallace, FSC, Ed.D., who is leaving Manhattan College at the end of this academic year to accept a new challenge, assisting in a new Lasallian ministry at St. VincentStrambi School in Jamaica.

Br. Jack is currently Vice President for Development at Bethlehem University,Palestine, where he has served since 2003. Before going to Bethlehem, he worked for six years as Vice President for Student Affairs at Saint Mary’s College of California.

A 1980 summa cum laude graduate of Manhattan College, Br. Jack majored in Physics and Religious Studies, and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. From 1992-1993, he worked at the College as an admissions representative and as a Resident Director. He also served as Assistant Director of Counseling and Health Services at Manhattan in 1995-1996, and as Acting Director of that department in 1996-1997.

Entering the Brothers of the Christian Schools in 1981, Br. Jack went on to earn an M.S.W. and a Ph.D. in Social Work from the State University of New York at Albany. He has continued throughout his service in administration to lecture and publish in this field. In addition to his appointments in higher education, he has served as a Mathematics teacher (at St. Raymond High School and Good Shepherd Elementary School), as a Coordinator of Religious Education, and as Vocation Director for the New York Province of the De La Salle Christian Brothers.

Br. Jack brings to the position of Vice President for Mission a wealth of experience and an understanding of the opportunities and challenges of promoting Lasallian mission in the context of higher education. He is known as a dynamic and engaging administrator and a powerful spokesman for Lasallian values and Lasallian education.

Please join me in thanking Br. James for his generous service to the College these past three years, and in welcoming Br. Jack back to the Manhattan Collegecommunity.

JNEWS: Troy, Denis [MC1970] nominates Wettje, Walter [MC1976]



Orangetown Republicans Choose Wettje to Run for Supervisor

The Orangetown Republican Committee voted for Walter Wettje of Pearl River its candidate for Orangetown Superivor this fall, with incumbents Denis Troy and Tom Diviny running to keep their town council seats.

By Ryan BuncherOrangetown

*** begin quote ***

Councilman Denis Troy nominated Walter Wettje of Pearl River as a candidate for Supervisor at the Orangetown Republican Committee meeting Thursday in the Nauraushank Lodge in Pearl River.

"He graduated from the finest institution in the land, Manhattan College," said Troy, himself a Manhattan graduate, drawing laughs from the assembled crowd. "He was a teacher. He had a long, distinguished career at Verizon. We have economic challenges. We need somebody capable of dealing with those challenges."

Andrew Wiley of Pearl River also put his name in to run for Supervisor, but Wettje was voted in, 57-8, and will run against incumbent Democrat Andy Stewart for the office of Orangetown Supervisor Nov. 5.

"One of the budgets I managed was the operation and capitalization of all the projects in the footprint of the United States for the data centers at Verizon was $1.2 billion, so I do know how to manage the budget," Wettje said. "I do know how to consolidate contracts. I do know how to work with people, compromise and negotiate. And I know how to lead people. This is what I believe is important for this town right now. Right now the leadership is lacking. That’s where it needs to go."

Incumbents Troy and Tom Diviny will run as the Republican candidates to keep their seats on the town council. Both won votes against Shelly Morgan Thursday night. Troy is the longest-serving member of the town board, having been a councilman since 2000. Diviny is running for his second four-year term. Both spoke about the importance of Republican control of the town board. Four of the five members of the current council are Republicans.

JOBIT: Callan, John 'Jack' [MC1963 RIP]


John (Jack) Callan
(1934 - 2013)

John (Jack) Callan, 78, passed away at home in Tallahassee, FL on Tuesday, April 23rd, after an illness lasting several months.

The son of the late John Callan and Teresa Callan (née Grant), he was predeceased by his wife Jacqueline (née Stefanovitch) and his sister, Loretta Boylan. He is survived by his stepdaughter, Karen Celander, his grandsons, Clay, Sean and Bobby, his brother, Joseph Callan, and his brother-in-law, Tommy Boylan along with his nieces, Teresa, Debbie and Cathy and his nephews, Jim and Tommy and many caring and loving cousins and close friends.

Born on July 14, 1934 to hardworking and self-sacrificing Irish parents, he spent his formative years in NYC (mid-Manhattan) going nine years to Catholic schools there before deciding to prepare for the life of a Christian Brother at Barrytown, NY. After three years of High School, one year in the Novitiate and four years at Catholic University in Washington, D.C. (BA degree in French), he began his teaching career of thirty-two years, both as a Religious Brother and as a Lay Teacher.

During this time he gained two Masters Degrees, one in Spanish from Middlebury College in Vermont, and the other in Theology from Manhattan College in Riverdale, NY.

In 1975, he married the love of his life, Jacqueline, French born and raised in Paris by her parents. Both Jack and she made many trips there during their 29 years of marriage.

She was a French Teacher in Lincroft, NJ. They lived 14 years in Westfield, NJ before moving to Tallahassee in 1989 to be near her daughter and son-in-law Karen and Bill, and their children. Jack was very active during his years in Tallahassee. He was involved in his neighborhood, went to many theater and social events and, above all, loved to travel through Florida, the US, France, Ireland, Italy and all points in between.

He will be missed by many, many people - his family in Tallahassee, his family up North, his family in Ireland and his myriad of friends from school days with whom he kept close via e-mails, mostly accompanied by the many thousands of pictures he had taken over the years.

Thanks to Big Bend Hospice and to the caring compassionate ladies from Hopewell Home Health Care. The family extends gratitude to Jacquelyn, Miesha, Shonte, Tara and Teresa.

Goodbye and rest in peace, Jack. We all loved you so very much. Memorial Services for Jack will be held at a later date in Tallahassee and New Jersey. Bevis Funeral Home, 850-385-2193, www.bevisfh.com, is in charge of the arrangements.

MFOUND: A school and meet record


Koita has ups!
by mcjasper75

PHILADELPHIA – For the second consecutive year, a member of the Manhattan College men’s track & field team won an event at the Penn Relays on Friday. And Mohamed Koita (Cergy, France) made history in the process. He cleared 2.20 meters (seven feet, 2½ inches), breaking the school and meet record, to capture the men’s Eastern high jump at 119th edition of the historic meet from Franklin Field.

[JR: I found this interesting. I guess this is why security fences are 8 feet tall? I bet I could do that --- in my dreams --- maybe sever inches. Amazing to be able to launch yourself to that height; more amazing to land without hurting yourself. Congrats!]

[JR: Note that this may not even be Alma Mater due to the lower case 'c'. But, I often played that game as a fat old white guy injineer student. If it wasn't in Fieldrocks, then it was in and around Fannie Farmer. What genius give one a schedule that has 10 minutes to change classes trans the hill. Since Father Ritter religiously took attendance and three tardys cost you a letter grade, (it is hard to go down from D---), us injineers would pile in a car, race up the hill, and get dumped in the President's spot. Whomever turn it was would then get to go find a space and take the "tardy" glare form Father Bruce. By spreading them around the class, we skated by. That taughts us "teamwork". And, that "the system" and "the man" were idiots! Funny now; not so much then.]

ENDNOTE: “Catholicism” is an “extremist” group


Don’t Fire Until You See The Whites of Their Cassocks
By Mark Steyn
April 7, 2013 9:38 A.M.

*** begin quote ***

This is one for the “too stupid to survive” files: US Army Labeled Evangelicals, Catholics as Examples of Religious Extremism.

When I first saw the headline, I assumed it must all be a little less obviously bone-crushingly stupid or at any rate more nuanced once you got into the story. But I invite you to look at the accompanying poster for the Equal Opportunity training brief issued by the Army Reserve in Pennsylvania. It lists “extremist” groups, starting with “Evangelical Christianity” at Number One, “Al Quaeda” (misspelled under any Roman rendering of Arabic) at Number Five, “Hamas” at Six, and “Catholicism” rounding out the Top Ten.

*** end quote ***

[JR: Don't tell me that the Gooferment is "our friend"! They, the "Secular Progressives", have labeled and named the enemy. Their Socialism can permit no other God but the Gooferment! Be warned and be prepared. Like all the minorities of history, the camps await! Call me a tin foil hat, but don't be surprised when it's too late.]

"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . ." --- Alexander Solzhenitsyn
