POSITRACTION: Actress Tippi Hedren is a great American hero



Actress Tippi Hedren reveals her award-winning off-camera role post-Vietnam War

LOS ANGELES – Tippi Hedren is recognized among moviegoers for her starring role in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1963 thriller “The Birds,” but to many Vietnamese immigrants, she’s better known as a great American hero.

The 83-year-old Hollywood veteran was honored earlier this week in Beverly Hills with the Legacy of Style Award by Beauty Changes Lives and Creative Nail Design for her commitment and contributions to the professional nail industry – a devotion that was first initiated decades ago through a USSO tour to support U.S. troops during the Vietnam War.

“Hollywood celebrities like Bob Hope would go to give moral support to the men and women who fought. In 1969, Tippi Hedren came and I had the honor to host her on my talk show in Vietnam,” recalled Vietnamese-American actress Kieu-Chinh. “Then the war escalated and Saigon fell to communism. I had no place to go. I fled with nothing but the clothes on my back; with a few dollars in my pocket I tried to approach my Hollywood connections from my talk show. After a few failed attempts my hope was about to fade away when I called Tippi, the person I had met nine years ago.”

In that moment of desperation, Hedren assured Kieu-Chinh that she would not only take care of her, but would make sure she had the opportunity to pursue the American Dream.

“Tippi took me to her house. I lived with her and wore her clothes and ate her food; she drove me around and helped me get the paperwork I needed to stay in this country legally. She also enrolled me into the Screen Actors Guild and found me an agent at William Morris so that I could also work in Hollywood. I am now a US citizen,” Kieu-Chinh continued proudly. “I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you America and Americans for opening up their arms and hearts when we needed them the most.”

And Hedren’s good deeds did not stop there.

And not because some talking head on TV says so.

Here's real charity in action.

How does this stack up with all those on my "Jane Fonda" list?

Not that I am the arbiter of who goes to Paradise or Hell.

I never knew a "hero" who tooted their own horn. They always have a certain humility about them.

Paraphasing Winston Churchill's, "Mr. Attlee is a very modest man. Indeed he has a lot to be modest about.", I have a lot to be humble about.

Ms. Hedren is an example for me.

JEMAIL: Eight Jaspers pray with and for McKeon, Owen F. [MC1960 RIP]


Dear John,

Saturday, eight Jaspers joined with Father John Michael Lee the Retreat Director of the Bishop Molloy Retreat House in Jamaica at the Funeral Mass for Owen McKeown,'60 who was one of the founders of the Manhattan College Businessmens Retreat. Owen was a man of great faith with a keen sense of humor who added greatly to the work of the Retreat team. It was a full church in Owen's home parish, The Church of the Presentation in Upper Saddle River, New Jersey. Fr. John concelebrated the Mass.

I have attached a picture of the group.

May He Rest In Peace.

JOBIT: Reid, Richard A. Jr. [MC1953 RIP]



Richard A. Reid Jr. (1930 - 2013)

Pawling -

Richard Reid Jr. 83, a 44 year resident of Pawling, quietly slipped away on October 18th at his home, under the watchful eye of his faithful family. He was born in Augusta, Georgia on June 24, 1930, to Richard Reid, KSG, the 1936 Laetare Medal Recipient and Katherine O'Leary Reid.

He was predeceased by his two sisters, Kathleen Reid and Sister Mary Richard Reid, an Ursuline educator of New Rochelle and Boston. He has two brothers, Thomas Reid, of Cleveland, Ohio and his identical twin James Reid, a Professor at Wesleyan University.

In 1940, his father was hired by the Archdioceses of New York to edit the Catholic News, so they left Dixie in the '36 Plymouth to become Yankees. He was an alumnus of Iona Prep and the School of Engineering at Manhattan College. Mr. Reid earned his United States Navy Wings after attending the Naval Air Force School at Pensacola.

On November 26, 1956, he was married to Carol Millette of Flushing, NY, at Saint Andrew of Avellino Catholic Church. Mrs. Reid survives him at home.

In 1960, Mr. Reid earned his Masters of Electrical Engineering from Syracuse University. He and Carol began raising five children in Williamstown, Mass. before moving to Pawling in 1969. His children are all educators. Kathleen Reid, Richard III, Sally Reid McGrath, Robert Reid and Carolyn (Lyn) Reid Deslandes.

Rick was the Technical Director at Hipotronics in Brewster, NY. He was a Commissioner for the Pawling Fire Department, a past President of the Pawling School Board and one time Treasurer for Pawling Little League.

He was quietly proud of his prodigious grandchildren: Reid McGrath, Hannah McGrath, Meredith L. Reid, Jerry Deslandes Jr., Liam McGrath, Anne Reid, Lily Reid, Peter Reid, Richard Reid Deslandes, Abby Reid, Carly McGrath and Ben Hartford. He also was proud to include his son in laws Tom Hartford, Blake McGrath, and Jerry Deslandes Sr, and daughter in law Terri Reid and Sharon Tuz. He had 23 nieces and nephews.

He was a member of St. John's Parish of Pawling. He loved to go deer hunting in Vermont with his Hipotronics friends and was an avid computer science hobbyist. He preferred political debate to sports without exception. He was a private and humble man but an absolutely frenetic texting buddy. He loved playing Words With Friends and 'liked' all his grandchildren's posts on facebook. We are all heartbroken that his iphone has gone silent.

Calling hours are 2-4pm and 7-9pm on Monday, October 21, 2013 at the Horn & Thomes, Inc. Funeral Home, 83 East Main Street, Pawling. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 10am on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at St. John's the Evangelist, Pawling.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Pawling Fire Department, Alzheimer's Association , American Heart Association , or to your favorite charity . Also in the spirit of remembrance, volunteer.

For directions or to leave an online condolence, go to www.hornandthomesfuneralhome.com.

OPINION: Terps should play in Cole Field House…now
October 18, 2013 by Chris Garosi

*** begin quote ***

The Maryland Terrapins men’s basketball team left Cole Field House following the end of the 2001-2002 basketball season. They headed across campus to the new, shiny Comcast Center. The Terps are moving Maryland Madness to Cole and now, Mark Turgeon says he’d like to get back to playing a regular season game at Cole every year. And there is no time like the present to make that move.

Why would the AD entertain an idea like moving back to Cole? Because the Terps continue to bleed attendance at the now decade-old Comcast Center. The Athletic Department needs to do anything it can to get more fans out to the games. Holding a game at Cole is a step in staunching the bleeding and Mark Turgeon realizes that.

*** and ***

Throwback Game

Finally, how should the game work? Well, here is one humble suggestion from a two-time alumnus of College Park.

Make it the yearly Throwback Game – a celebration of Maryland and Cole Field House history.

First match up? Maryland takes on the University of Texas – El Paso (née Texas Western) in celebration of Texas Western’s groundbreaking 1966 title game victory at Cole. Each team plays in throw back uniforms from that season. Would you love to see these uniforms on the floor at Cole one more time?

Future matchups could be Maryland versus Manhattan College with each team wearing throwback uniforms from DeMatha Catholic High and Power Memorial. I’m not sure who would play Lew Alcindor, but I bet Under Armour wouldn’t mind putting together a Power Memorial throwback.

Or maybe Maryland versus the Richmond Spiders to celebrate the first win by a number 15 seed over a two seed in NCAA tournament history? Maybe Curtis Blair would referee the game?

The possibilities are endless and this game would be a great way to energize the alumni, students, administration and corporate sponsors.

It would great if Maryland had the problem of the men’s team selling out games. It does not have that issue currently. And it will take more than one good season to climb back up the hill.

*** end quote ***

There's at least one Maryland alum, I know, who still chaffs at the infamous Jasper upset.

And. I don't let him forget the day that "Jasper" killed the "Terp".

That's why they play the games.

“@JonRothstein: The latest @CBSSports features Five Mid-Majors On The Rise For The 2013-14 College Basketball Season http://cbsprt.co/1656yyd”

Manhattan (14-18, 9-9 MAAC): The Jaspers return the entire core of a team that reached the MAAC finals a year ago and lost to Iona. Steve Masiello's squad will also add Maryland transfer Ashton Pankey and fifth-year senior George Beamon -- last season's MAAC Preseason Player of the Year -- who had to redshirt after playing only four games due to an ankle injury. The big area where Manhattan will separate itself from other mid-major teams? The frontcourt. Pankey, Rhamel Brown, and skilled forward Emmy Andujar are three players who could play and have an impact at the BCS level -- they're that good. The Jaspers also have a senior point guard who's been through the gauntlet in Mike Alvarado and two capable defensive wings in C.J. Jones and Donovan Kates. Sharpshooter Shane Richards returns as a sophomore after making 65 three-point shots as a freshman, and Masiello also added several quality pieces in his freshman class that should be able to augment Manhattan's depth. This team will use 11 players on a regular basis. The Jaspers open the season on November 9th at La Salle.

NHL emergency: obscure goalies get moment in spotlight
By Gary Loewen, Canada.com October 18, 2013

*** begin quote ***

Tom Fenton was getting his hair cut when he got a call asking him to report to Madison Square Garden to serve as a backup for the Phoenix Coyotes in a game in December 2010.

A native of Sarnia, Ont., who coached hockey at Manhattan College, Fenton got concerned when Phoenix goalie Jason LaBarbera appeared to get hurt making a save.

“He was kind of favoring his groin and I immediately started sweating on the bench,” Fenton told the Coyotes website.

Fenton already was feeling enough heat thanks to a practical joke by the Coyotes skaters. They told him it was a league rule that he had to keep his helmet and mask on for the whole game, even on the bench.

JEMAIL: Flynn, Bro. Gregory (MC1967) reminds about Addis Hope


Hello John,

It’s been some time since I last contacted you about continuing your support for our Addis Hope program.

Some have mentioned to me that a reminder is often needed since in today’s hectic world it’s easy, even with the best of intentions, for the request to be put aside for the moment and then forgotten. While I really value your support, I recognize that you may not be in a position to assist. If that is the case, I will continue to ask your prayers for our efforts to provide the first steps out of extreme poverty through education for the children of these truly deserving and marginalized families.

While I desire to return to Ethiopia as soon as possible, I realize that my efforts to keep the program operational are currently best served by my continuing to fund raise stateside. To that end, I’ve been able to arrange that donations to the program be made tax exempt if sent through the Christian Brothers Provincialate Development Office, P.O. Box 238 Lincroft, NJ 07738, mentioning Addis Hope.

In the last eleven years I’ve asked for donations of $150 to sponsor a child for a year. The sad reality is that at least double that is needed today because of the increase in the cost of living. If that previous arrangement continues to suit you, we will be delighted for your help.

I also realize that it may be tedious for some to write and mail a check, so if you are in a position to send $25 or $50 on a monthly basis by having your bank mail a check to the above address, it would assure the program of a steady income and do away with our hand-to-mouth uncertainty. This arrangement is also tax exempt.

God bless. Perhaps this could be put into Jasper Jottings, John.
