POSITRACTION: Diabetic Woman gets served at the drive up window



Diabetic Woman Orders Food, Something Crazy Happens (Photo)
By Sean Kelly
December 12, 2017

*** begin quote ***

A diabetic woman took to Facebook to share the story of what a Burger King employee did for her when she had low blood sugar and needed food.

Rebecca Boening said she was driving when she felt her blood sugar level drop, so she decided to take the next exit and go to a Burger King.

"As I stumbled through placing my order I mentioned to the voice on the speaker that I was diabetic and in need of food," she wrote in the post. "Low blood sugar makes it difficult to think or act. I pulled up to the first window in order to pay for my food."

This woman was helped from an unexpected source.

Kudos to the quick thinking clerk.

JNEWS: Howlan, Francis “Dutch” [MC1951 RIP] honored



Mohawks set for HOF ceremony
Posted by Recorder News | Jan 31, 2018 | Featured, Local Sports | By ADAM SHINDER

*** begin quote ***

The 11th class of the Amsterdam Baseball/Mohawks Baseball Hall of Fame will be honored Saturday night in front of an expected crowd of more than 350 at St. Mary’s Institute.

Bill Stanley and the late Francis “Dutch” Howlan will join the Amsterdam wing of the Hall of Fame, while Matt Colantonio and Bill Cilento are the Mohawks Hall of Fame inductees. George Foster, one of the most decorated Major League sluggers of the 1970s and a member of the Cincinnati Reds’ legendary “Big Red Machine” teams, will serve as the evening’s keynote speaker.

*** and ***

The two Amsterdam inductees both have significant links to the building where the induction ceremony will take place. Howlan was a legendary coach over 34 years at St. Mary’s Institute (later Bishop Scully High School), coaching the baseball team from 1953 to 1968 and the football team from 1965 to 1978. Most notably, he coached the SMI and Scully basketball teams retiring as the second-winningest boys basketball coach in Section II history with 468 victories before retiring in 1987. Howlan died two years after his retirement, and was a posthumous inductee into the New York State Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013. The gymnasium where the induction ceremony will take place, Howlan Hall, was named in his honor in 1980.

Howlan’s baseball journey started in the 1940s when he signed a minor league contract with the Brooklyn Dodgers while also playing basketball at Manhattan College. After putting his career on hold in 1943 to serve as a US Navy radioman in the South Pacific during World War II, Howlan returned to baseball in 1946 and spent four years as a minor league pitcher, compiling a 30-24 record for a total of seven different Class C clubs, including the Gloversville Glovers during his final season of 1951.

“I didn’t even know he was a baseball guy. Everyone associates him with basketball, and rightfully so,” Spagnola said. “When I heard about his baseball prowess, I looked it up and, wow, he was one of the most accomplished baseball guys to ever come out of Amsterdam.”

Stanley played for Howlan’s baseball teams at St. Mary’s Institute, graduating in 1958 following a standout career as a pitcher and first baseman for the Gaels. He was also a star basketball player at St. Mary’s and played both sports at LeMoyne College.

JNEWS: Fiorito, Dan [MC????] Defensive Coach @ RiverDogs



Pope, Seabol among RiverDogs field staff appointments

*** begin quote ***

Other appointments to Mosquera’s 2018 staff include Bronx native and first-time coach Dan Fiorito, who will be the Defensive Coach for the RiverDogs in 2018. Michael Sole, last year’s South Atlantic League Athletic Trainer of the Year, will return for his second season in Charleston, while Strength & Conditioning Coach Danny Russo joins the RiverDogs after working on the rookie-level Pulaski staff a year ago. Former RiverDogs front office staffer Harris Seletsky also returns for his third season as the clubhouse manager.

Fiorito, 27 and a local product from the Bronx, played collegiately at Manhattan College before being signed as a non-drafted free agent by his hometown team in 2012. The utility infielder slashed .240/.308/.317 with seven professional homers and 98 RBI in 322 minor league games, all with the Yankees, and reaching as high as Triple-A.

COMMENT: O'Connell, Bill (MC1976) suggests "deplorable"


COMMENT: Toner, Mike (MC1972) says DJT45's remarks were racist

Perhaps instead of referring to them as s**thole countries he should have called them deplorable countries. I'm sure that would pass muster with the left as they cheered Hillary Clinton referring to half of all AMERICANS as deplorable.

Bill O'Connell, 1976

COMMENT: Jablon, Ken (MC1962) sees the "religious right" as the problem



Regarding your comment in the ENDNOTE of 2/3/18—"Abortion should be a rarity; not a convenient form of birth control. I agree! However, it’s not going to happen if the religious right, particularly the Catholic Church, make it as difficult as possible to purchase and use birth control materials.

Ken Jablon ‘62

[JR: Nice that we agree. I don’t see there is much difficulty in “buying and using”. It’s (imho) cheap — despite what Democratic convention speaker Sandra Flack articulated — and easy. And the Catholic Church is not a big hurdle since it, and this Pope, seems to be abandoning any standards at all. Sadly, hopefully, abortion will be seen as “immoral” in that it threatens humanity as a species. As with other “alternatives” — what the religious right would call “perversions” — behaviors that prevent reproduction are contra-survival of humanity. The low replacement birth rate doesn’t bode well for humanity.]

Manhattan College Mourns Passing of President Emeritus, Brother Thomas J. Scanlan, FSC
The longtime president of Manhattan College passed away at age 72.

Brother Thomas J. Scanlan, FSC, president emeritus of Manhattan College, passed away on Sunday, February 4, at the age of 72.

The 18th president of Manhattan College, serving from 1987 to 2009, Br. Thomas helped to navigate the College through a difficult financial period in the 1980s to become the institution it is today. During his 22-year tenure, the College’s enrollment increased by 120 percent and received accreditations by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC).

Brennan O’Donnell, Ph.D., president of Manhattan College, said: “In the time that I have come to know Br. Thomas, I developed a deep appreciation for his visionary side ... Brother’s decisions were grounded firmly in a deep faith and in the Lasallian mission. He made bold and courageous decisions grounded in that faith.”

Under Br. Thomas’ leadership, the College transformed into a largely residential campus while still preserving its commitment to serving first-generation students. The College also saw several enhancements and expansions under Br. Thomas, including the opening of Horan Hall, Lee Hall and the Mary Alice and Thomas O’Malley Library.

Br. Thomas came to Manhattan College from Bethlehem University in Palestine, where he served as vice chancellor and chief executive officer. Prior to that, he was director of finance and education for the New York Province of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. Br. Thomas also served as a teacher, vice principal, and principal at Queen of Peace High School in North Arlington, N.J.

Born in New York City, Br. Thomas received his B.A. in physics from The Catholic University of America, his M.A. in mathematics from New York University, and his Ph.D. in business administration from Columbia University.

Br. Thomas received the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice Medal in 1986. He was a member of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. He also received the Good Scout Award from the Greater New York Council of the Boy Scouts of America in 1995. In 1997, he was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the College of Mount Saint Vincent. He also received a Community Leadership Award from the New York City Community Board 8 in 1998 and an Interfaith Brotherhood Award from the Riverdale Jewish Community Council in 2003. In addition, Br. Thomas was a member of the Fellows of the Phi Beta Kappa Society.

In 2016, Br. Thomas was awarded the Reverend Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., Award, named in honor of the influential former Notre Dame president, and typically given to a former college president who has made outstanding contributions to Catholic higher education through service and academic work.

“Being a Catholic college president is one of the most complex and challenging roles in our nation. To succeed takes a true team effort, and my most critical ability was to say ‘I need your help.’ And I was gratified, both at Bethlehem University and at Manhattan College, by the extremely positive response of so many talented individuals,” Br. Thomas said upon receiving the Hesburgh Award.

He is survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Helen and Wilfrid Auger; niece Pamela Auger-Thornton, and nephews Peter Auger, Vincent Auger, and his wife Karen. Additionally, Br. Thomas is survived by great nieces Christelle Auger and Cassandra Thornton, and nephew Evan Thornton, as well as many beloved cousins and friends.

Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming.

Good Evening All,

You have received the sad news of the passing of Brother Thomas. The Link below is the statement and Obituary shared by President Brennan O'Donnell, Manhattan College. It speaks of Brother Thomas and his contributions not only to Manhattan College but to the Lasallian Tradition at large and the many that he touched in his lifetime.

Brother Thomas was a Friend, a Mentor, an Educator, an Administrator and wherever he went, a hard act to follow. He will be missed.

Brother Thomas was asked a few years back by a school mate of his, a Fellow Jasper and member of the Manhattan College Retreat Team, Don Bane, if he would be willing to join us as a speaker at our Retreat and to our good fortune, he said yes. Many of us consider him to have been one of our best speakers throught the 26 years we have celebrated our Manhattan College and Friends Retreat. I don't recall him using notes, he was entirely extempore and totally well prepared and held our attention. At some point during his witness, it became evident that we, the attendees at that Retreat, were impressed and all wanted to hear more about his successes. He shared some more of his witness with us and in wrapping up he said, " ........I am just an Administrator." One thing that his Friends, Family, colleagues and Community will agree with, Just is not a word that would be used to describe Brother Thomas. He will be missed and not forgotten. God Speed.

We pray for the repose of Brother Thomas, his Sister and Brother-in-Law, Helen and Wilfred Auger and their Family, Brother Thomas's Friends and Community as they mourn the loss of their loved one. Brother Thomas was predeceased by his Parents, Thomas and Anna Scanlan and his Brother, John.

Thank you. God Bless.

JOBIT: Neville, Kevin Patrick Joseph [MC1984 RIP] 2018-Feb-07



Kevin Patrick Joseph Neville

Montvale, NJ - Kevin Patrick Joseph Neville, aged 55, passed away Wednesday due to complications of cancer. Born in St. Vincent's Hospital, NYC, he grew up in Crestwood, NY and raised his own family in Hillsdale and Montvale NJ. A Happy Warrior in the tradition of Wordsworth's poem, he was a faithful and adoring husband to Elizabeth Ferrante Neville, and devoted in unconditional love to son Conor and daughter Reilly. Beloved son of Patrick and Catherine Neville, brother to Kathryn, doting uncle to Matthew Capuano, Sean and Patrick Browne, he is survived by extended family and countless friends.

Kevin graduated from Fordham Prep and Manhattan College and earned his Master's degree from Iona, trading on his keen intellect to shape a thriving career in business, holding positions with Bear Stearns, Pfizer and CitiGroup. While that was the manner in which he earned a living, his intense creativity, boundless energy, profound empathy, and vibrant wit were the traits by which he made a life.

Never jaded, he literally ate life, learning and perfecting cooking skills, and turning his aptitudes into any number of hobbies and pursuits- including karate, ice hockey and luge sledding; acting, directing, and designing sets for amateur theater; animation art, movies, music, and photography; and anything at all that concerned his children. He could not abide to see a problem without advancing a practical and inspired solution. His wit was his hallmark and he could break up a business meeting, or a table full of friends, in laughter with equal ease.

His most abiding trait was his love and affection for his wife of thirty years, Liz, and children Conor and Reilly. Most any conversation included some busted buttons over them, not out of pride but in genuine awe of the blessings of being husband and father. He was a man of principle and rock steady faith in God, which never left him even through the nightmare of an illness borne with great dignity and strength. For all these things, we will never forget him.

Eternal Rest grant unto him, O Lord. Godspeed brother Kevin.

The family will receive friends on Sunday from 3:30 PM until 7 PM at the Hannemann Funeral Home, Inc., 88 So. Broadway Nyack, NY 10960. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Monday at 10 AM at Our Lady of Mercy RC Church, 2 Fremont Ave., Park Ridge, NJ 07656. Burial will follow at Ascension Cemetery , Airmont, NY.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that friends consider donations to these charities:

American Brain Tumor Association at www.abta.org

Compassionate Care Foundation, 248 East Chestnut Hill Road, Suite #4, Newark, Delaware, 19713.

ENDNOTE: The Dark Side of the Olympics



The Dark Side of the Olympics - and How to Fix it
The Olympics is a great athletic event. But it also often features horrible human rights abuses, enormous waste, and propaganda for dictatorships. It doesn't have to be that way.
Ilya Somin|Feb. 9, 2018 10:25 am

Host cities routinely lose enormous amounts of money on the games, and end up with decaying stadiums that have little or no value. Even worse, governments often forcibly displace large numbers of people from their homes and businesses in order to make room for Olympic venues

*** end quote ***

Personally, I was pleased at the North & South Korea “peace”. Although, I do suspect its just a ploy by North Korea to get economic help from the South. It’s better that fighting!

The Gooferment involvement is always bad from the waste of economic resources to the forced relocation of people. Like the “sports stadiums” in the USA that taxpayers are forced to fund, it’s just immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy.
