POSITRACTION: True charity -- he didn't know it'd be picked up by MLB



Fan Scored a Baseball From the Ballgirl, but It’s What He Did With It After That Is Causing a Stir
Jun. 25, 2015 2:45am Oliver Darcy

*** begin quote ***

A Boston Red Sox fan’s gesture Wednesday night received praise after video of him giving a game ball away to a child seated in his area was posted online by Major League Baseball.

When the ballgirl handed the fan the baseball, cameras captured him walk over and hand the ball to a kid in his section.

*** end quote ***

This had an impact on me.

Brought back a memory of my sainted wife — she had to be; she put up with me.

We were at a MLB game — I forget where or with who — and my wife caught a “hot grounder” into our seats — after I astutely got the hell out of the way of it — she was the athlete — caught it clean with one hand.

She looked at it, and proceed to give it to a kid a few rows away.

I guess I looked at her funny. And, she said: “I always wanted to catch one. Now I did. I’ll always have the memory; he’ll have the ball.”

Watching this video makes me remember.


But, she got her dream. Sadly. I don’t have mine.

But, on my point, what we do for others touches so many people that we can clearly see and many that we can’t.

Hope that young man doesn’t change!

MNEWS: Coach Gags has a connection Alma Mater



U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials
Getting some distance: Legendary coach Frank Gagliano plans to scale back
By Steve Ritchie
For The Register-Guard
July 10, 2016

*** begin quote ***

Frank Gagliano was in his usual spot near the Bowerman Curve on Thursday night for the finals of the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase.

Coach Gags, as his athletes and virtually everyone else calls him, was in the same spot for many of the most thrilling distance races at Hayward Field in recent years. He was there for the now-mythic men’s 800 final at the 2008 Trials, watching his OTC Elite runners Nick Symmonds and Christian Smith finish first and third, respectively.

*** and ***

Back in 1961, no one could have predicted this kind of influential coaching career, now spanning nearly six decades. Gagliano had just returned from playing professional football in Canada and was looking for a job coaching football. Roselle Catholic in Roselle, N.J., offered him a coaching job, but it was for track, not football.

“When I started the track team (at Roselle), I coached a lot of events, but I fell in love with the middle distance events,” he recalled. “I had success. In 1965, we won the double at the Penn Relays — the distance-medley relay and the two-mile relay. That set it off.

“Then I went to Manhattan College. I was with (head coach) Freddy Dwyer and we won the indoor national championship in 1972.”

JNEWS: Bryk, William (MC1977) seeks political office



July 10. 2016 7:50PM
Running for Hillsborough County Probate seat

To the Editor:

I am a 61-year old lawyer, specializing in guardianship and fiduciary law. I had also conducted many successful consumer bankruptcy cases. I enjoy helping people solve their problems. I would like to do that in this office.

I worked my way through Manhattan College. Later, while working full time, I earned a law degree from Fordham Law School’s evening division and was admitted to the New York bar in 1990. Until my retirement in 2010, I spent most of my career in New York City government.

I’ve practiced law in the public and private sectors. I have appeared in state and federal courts and before municipal administrative tribunals. I have also served by judicial appointment as a court examiner, reviewing guardians’ accounts to help ensure that incapacitated persons are not subject to financial exploitation.

Over the last 20 years, I’ve published numerous articles, columns, essays, and reviews in newspapers such as The Daily Beast, New York Press, The New York Sun, and New York Newsday and magazines such as Cabinet, Last Exit, The New York Chronicle, and Smashpipe.

Each New Hampshire county has a Register of Probate. He or she is responsible for coordinating with the administrative judge of the circuit court the preservation of any closed files having the potential for historical significance.

I look forward to serving the people of Hillsborough County in this office.

"Clark Hill continues its success in landing both high profile environmental matters and top-flight practitioners.  This prestige has increased the attraction of being part of our growing team," said Ken von Schaumburg, Chair of Clark Hill's national Environment, Energy & Natural Resources Practice Group.  "Karen Bennett is recognized as one of the most knowledgeable and respected strategists in the mining industry, with expertise in complex project development in the face of multi-front regulatory hurdles and public scrutiny," he added.  "Chambers USA-ranked Bill Walsh joins the firm at a critical time in the history of chemical regulation - which affects every manufacturing and production sector.  Well-known for advising trade associations and industry clients on an array of environmental laws, Bill will focus on the newly amended Toxic Substance and Control Act ("TSCA"), and business risks related to regulations to be promulgated by the US Environmental Protection Agency.  We are delighted to have Karen and Bill as part of our growing national environmental presence."

"Clark Hill is a leader among Am Law 200 firms, with the expertise necessary to tackle today's sophisticated environmental challenges on behalf of clients throughout the country," said Charlie Spies, head of Clark Hill's Washington D.C. office.  "Karen and Bill bring significant knowledge of the natural resource development, chemical, and manufacturing industries to the firm, expanding the capabilities of our already established national environmental practice as well as solidifying our environmental policy expertise here in D.C.," he added. "Their extensive experience will greatly benefit our existing clients, and will set us apart from the competition at a time when the legal and regulatory world is undergoing fundamental changes."

Walsh principally focuses his practice in the areas of government policy advocacy, regulatory compliance and counseling, science policy issues, and environmental litigation.  He advises companies and industry trade associations on compliance with a wide range of environmental laws and assists in identifying and mitigating business risks associated with product safety and chemical ingredient regulations.
Walsh, who is listed in Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business, served as the chief of the EPA's Drinking Water and Wetlands Enforcement Branch before entering private practice. Walsh earned his J.D. from the George Washington University Law School and B.S. from Manhattan College.

Author Costello, Donald (MC1954)
In Response To JEMAIL: Toner, Mike (MC1972) agrees about “live and let live”
Submitted on 2016/07/05 at 3:08 pm

Sorry Mike…I prefer to believe that it is just and necessary to shine our brights on those who approve of abortion and/or gay marriage and thereby admonish the sinner as we were advised to do.

This is especially true if you, as I am, are a sinner who with God’s help somebody flashed their brights at me saying” there is a hell” and that is where you well may go if you keep on living a sinful life. By listening to him I changed my spots admitted my sins and came back to the Church and God’s love.

The rationalism that accompanies the pro choice and gay marriage voices is killing many of our children and my prayer is that God will shine his light on you and yours. and save your brain, heart and soul.

*** end quote ***

In response to Don Costello

I certainly appreciate Jasper Don's concern for my place in the afterlife...

While he and I seem to disagree about the time when life begins and thus his view on abortion as the killing of children, I cannot understand how he would view gay marriage as threatening the lives of children. I can understand - but disagree with - his objection to gay marriage but can't fathom his thinking that it threatens children's lives.

Submitted on    2016/07/12 at 4:05 pm

That’s what old Jaspers like…a good argument. In 1853 when Manhattan was born and in 1954 when I finished 27 credits of Religion and Philosophy and in 1972 when you graduated, Manhattan and the Catholic Church preached, taught and theologized that Abortion and Gay Marriage and in fact Gay practice was wrong.

All the sins we commit hurt the Mystical Body of Christ and that includes the young children therein.

So we leave the mystic and come to the dinner table of one of my older family members who has a gay marriage couple at the dinner table; and so a young grandchild says “what do you mean they are married?”. Now you know how this rough and tumble old Jasper would answer that.

And the old Homosexual couple who teach say to the young boy who feels guilty about masturbating “it’s a choice” .

Or that old SOB advertising agency takes after Bob Dole and puts up a sexy lady to sell Viagra during the six PM news.

I could go on to pederasty but you can pick up the thread.

There are a significant number of laymen and women, addicted to various forms of illicit sex to the point where it is another problem area to add to the list most of us see but don’t want to confront.

I thank God for Brother Alban of Mary, Brother Luke, Brother Benignus all of whom were part of a group of men who gave us good meat to chew on whose taste has lasted all these years and whose principles say to Manhattan Men , sinners all, of yesterday and today “Abortion and Same Sex Marriage and wrong “ but hate the sin and love the sinner.

JOBIT: McDonough, Francis Donal [MC???? RIP] on 2016-Jul-13



Obituary for Francis Donal McDonough
April 23, 1929 - July 13, 2016
Stoughton, Massachusetts | Age 87

Francis Donal McDonough died peacefully on Wednesday , July 13th, 2016 in Stoughton, MA surrounded by loved ones. Frank was born April 23, 1929 to Peter and Katherine Gaffrey McDonough in Queens, NY. After meeting at a parish Valentine's Day dance ("the prettiest girl I'd ever seen"), he and Margaret Mary Donovan, also of Queens, were married in April 1958. Their first home was in Brewster, NY where they raised six children and remained for over 40 years. In 1999 the two left Brewster for Cape Cod, and several years later settled in Palm Coast, FL, staying 12 years until their final move to Stoughton, MA to live with, and in the care of, their youngest daughter, Bernadette.

Educated as a nuclear physicist, he received his degree from Manhattan College and served as a US Navy officer during the Korean War as an instructor / supervisor on the Special Weapons Project in New Mexico. His subsequent employment in the nuclear testing field led to a diverse sales career spanning from nuclear medical equipment to his great passion: computers. Frank was in on the ground floor of home computer sales and by the early 80's was running his own business with his DOS-based PC and self-written programs. He was recruited by local businesses to computerize their operations and received a special commendation/award from the Federal Correctional Institution, Danbury, CT for the "outstanding programs he developed to streamline and increase the efficiency of" numerous departments within.

A man of great faith, he was deeply involved in his local parishes throughout his life. He was instrumental to the resurrection of the dormant St. Lawrence O'Toole council of the Knights of Columbus, serving as Grand Knight, and he was a member of the first group in the diocese to be ordained Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist. He also served as lector and was firmly committed to the Pro-Life cause, attending many Washington, DC marches over the years.Frank was a member of MENSA, as well as a skilled woodworker (making furniture for family members), but his greatest enjoyment came from spending time with his family, telling old stories, working outdoors, and on his many cars. His grandchildren fondly remember his never-ending supply of lemon drop candies, learning to play chess and reading with him.

He is survived by his wife, Margaret, his children; Daniel and his wife Mary Jean of Portsmouth, RI, Maryellen Lent and her husband Gregory of Danbury, CT, Karen Dobbins and her husband Timothy of Pawling, NY, Jeanne D'Ottavio and her husband Michael of Brewster, NY, Eileen McDonough of Manhattan, NY, and Bernadette Richards and her husband Kirby of Stoughton, MA., fourteen grandchildren; Joseph, Gretchen, Sister Mary of the Word Incarnate, O.P., Felicity, Sean and Diane McDonough, Shannon Cohen, Alyssa and Tara D'Ottavio, Sean, Kyle, Alexander, Alanna and Declan Richards.He was predeceased by his brother Vincent and his sister Imelda.

Visiting hours will be 4-8 PM on Monday, July 18th at Beecher Funeral Home, 1 Putnam Avenue, Brewster, NY. A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 10:30 AM on Tuesday, July 19th at St. Lawrence O'Toole, 31 Prospect Street, Brewster, NY. Burial will follow at St. Lawrence O'Toole cemetery.Donations in his name gratefully appreciated to the Monastery of the Mother of God, 1430 Riverdale Street, West Springfield, MA 01089, where his granddaughter, Mary, serves the Lord.

This is very frustrating for Pete. Please keep Pete in your prayers as we pray the MDs find what ails him and are able to resolve the problem. In and out of hospital without resolution is indeed very frustrating. Thank you. God Bless.

ENDNOTE: Catholic-bashing sitcom The Real O'Neals



Bozell & Graham Column: Loose Lips Could Sink Gay Ships
By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham | June 25, 2016 | 8:01 AM EDT

*** begin quote ***

After weeks of indecision, ABC decided on May 12 it would renew the Catholic-bashing sitcom The Real O'Neals, loosely based on the childhood of vehement gay sex columnist Dan Savage.

*** end quote ***

Great. Tell me again how there’s no war of faith, Christianity, or Catholics?

Sorry, but EVERYONE should be calling, tweeting, facebooking, and yelping … … on ABC and Walt Disney.

Where is the overwhelming outrage?

Can you imagine a Moslem sitcom like this?
