A recently engaged couple have even more to celebrate after a kind stranger helped them recover their engagement ring - a month after it was lost on South Carolina's Edisto beach.'I was throwing a football,' Kelly Gourley-Dalton told KHOU. 'I went down to the water to put my hand in, and when I put my hand back up, it was gone.' She had only been engaged to fiance Robby Alexander for two days when the accident happened on July 6. But despite appearances, luck was on their side.

I’ve had girl’s lose rings, but never this lucky.

I love stories about honesty.

The fellow could have hocked the ring and no one would have been the wider.

Let’s put it to the test and put him in Congress?

Just the facts: Interns track town data

Ms. Oliveri, 21, is a Manhattan College mechanical engineering student who, after visiting a relative in Greenport, learned of the opportunity to work here for the summer.

While her future likely lies in automotive engineering, she hopes the information she compiled on irrigation will prove useful to the town as it contemplates ways to conserve water. She came to the East Coast for college after growing up in Las Vegas.

JNEWS: Cudia, Dorothy [MC1984] VP Middleby Automated Solutions



Business updated: 8/18/2016 11:29 AM
Dorothy Cudia named vice president of Middleby Automation Solutions
Daily Herald Report

Dorothy Cudia has been named vice president of Middleby Automated Solutions, leading the effort to bring transformational innovative equipment into the foodservice industry.

Her areas of focus include robotics, 3D printing and autonomous systems.

"The deep technical and engineering background in foodservice Dorothy brings to Middleby is a tremendous asset. She is leading our automation and robotics solutions team, an initiative that will enable foodservice operators to reduce labor and food costs, increase service speed and improve food quality," said David Brewer, COO of Middleby Commercial Foodservice.

Cudia said, "I am proud to be joining Middleby in this newly created role to bring emerging technology into foodservice. Much of my job will be bringing solutions that exist in other industries and making it commercially viable in food service. A great example is the robot that we debuted in our booth at the National Restaurant Show. The lines were five deep to see a robot simulating making French fries. We all know robots can do a lot more but in our industry the headwinds around cost, service, limited footprint and variety of tasks have made it difficult to deliver commercially viable solutions. The interest and desire from our customers is fantastic and Middleby will provide a variety of options to automate their kitchens."

Cudia brings more than 25 years of domestic and global experience to her new position. She has held several senior level positions with Nabisco Brands in automation and process control, McDonald's Corp. in engineering and capital equipment and most recently at Darden leading a variety of innovation efforts across supply chain for food, energy and capital equipment.

Cudia is a graduate of Manhattan College with a B.E. Degree in Mechanical Engineering. She is a member of Tau Beta Pi and Pi Tau Sigma. She has attended continuing education at the University of N. Florida for study in Supply Chain Management and Data Interchange.

She is an active coach and weekly volunteer with Special Olympics and a key sponsor for BASCA's New Campus, to provide residential services for special needs individuals. Cudia resides in Celebration, Florida with her husband and two daughters.

ENDNOTE: You have to be kidding me!



Catholic Church Gives Pro-Abortion Tim Kaine a Standing Ovation

*** begin quote ***

On Sunday, Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine was given a standing ovation by his Catholic parish, California Catholic Daily reported. While his fellow parishioners are celebrating him as Hillary Clinton’s pro-abortion running mate, many Catholics are speaking out against him because of his position on abortion.

*** end quote ***

<Expletive Deleted>!

This story made me say a bad word.


<<<Stop the presses. I’ve bumped the endnote that I had scheduled for this one! I’m enraged.>>>

No wonder today’s “catholics” are confused.

The leadership is sadly lacking.

Pedophile priests, CINO politicians, and no one stands up for any principles.

I’ve stopped contributing to send a message!

Will anything get through.
