POSITRACTION: Coal Miners Retrained as Beekeepers



Appalachian Coal Miners Who Lost Their Jobs Are Being Retrained as Beekeepers – for Free
By Ryan Morris-Feb 3, 2019

*** begin quote ***
With the slow decline of the coal industry, West Virginia residents are enthusiastically taking to bee-keeping as an alternative new source of income

Over the course of the last 28 years, high-paying mining jobs have dwindled from 132,000 to 53,000, and former mineworkers have found themselves in need of a new occupation.

Now, a recently-formed nonprofit called the Appalachian Beekeeping Collective has offered a solution for the economic hardship in the region.

So far, the organization has trained 35 beekeepers, with plans to train another 50 during the upcoming weeks. Once the budding beekeepers complete the free training, they are also given all the equipment they will need for their new profession.

Seems like humans are infinitely adaptable.  And, no Gooferment involvement?  A need being filled by smart people.  Very impressive.

JOBIT: McCormick, Frank Peter [MC1964 RIP] 2019-Mar-21



Frank Peter McCormick
July 24, 1941 ~ March 21, 2019 (age 77)

Frank Peter McCormick died on March 21, 2019 at his home in Ellicott City surrounded by his family.

Frank was born on July 24, 1941 in Brooklyn, New York to Dorothy (Freese) and Frank McCormick. He attended La Salle Academy in Manhattan and spent many summers lifeguarding on the beach at the Breezy Point Surf Club in the Rockaways. In 1964, he graduated from Manhattan College where he studied math and played basketball. He began a career at the National Security Agency as a Cryptologic Mathematician in 1964. His 35 years of service included two overseas tours and many challenging assignments as an analyst and a manager.

Retirement happily coincided with the arrival of grandchildren. Frank loved family celebrations and attending the grandchildren’s sporting events, dance recitals, plays, and school events (usually with a pocket full of treats for the kids). He loved taking pictures and kept detailed scrapbooks that chronicled the grandchildren’s activities. Frank enjoyed hiking and biking with his wife and friends. Although he lived in Maryland for over 50 years, he was a New Yorker at heart. He always did the Sunday crossword puzzle in ink, and read the New York Times daily!

He had a lifetime love of everything “Frank Sinatra”, collecting records, CDs, posters, and books. He was also an avid toy train collector, especially the Lehigh Valley line. His children and grandchildren always loved the trains at Christmas.

Frank is survived by his wife of 24 years, Judy Dye; his four children Kelly Riley (Mick), Ken McCormick (Britt), Kerrin Kowach (David), and Kate Stillman (Tobias) by his first wife Maureen McCormick; and, two stepsons Michael Dye (Elizabeth) and John Dye. In addition, he is survived by 13 grandchildren; Aela, Colin, Maira, Garrett, Connor, Anna, Libby, Aidan, Maeve, Freya, Joe, Sam and Rachel.

If desired friends can make a donation in Frank’s name to: Gilchrist Hospice Care 11311 McCormick Rd #350 Hunt Valley MD 21031 1-888-823-8880 http://www.gilchristcares.org

MOBIT: Baker, Catherine V. [Jasper Wife and Mom] 2019-Mar-25


Dear John,

Below is a full Obituary for Catherine.


Catherine V. Baker
July 8, 1932 – March 25, 2019

We cherish our memory of Catherine Veronica (Guldner) Baker who passed away on Monday, March 25, 2019 at her home at Sunrise of New City. Born in Bronx, NY to Margaret (McKenna) and John Conrad Guldner, she attended St. Barnabas High School, and in 2011 she was inducted into the St. Barnabas High School’s Hall of Fame. She attended Hunter College and worked at Springs Mills in Manhattan until her marriage to Richard G. Baker in 1954, six days after he returned from service in Korea. Their strong faith and love for each other, as well as their devotion to serving others formed the foundation for all who were blessed to know them during their 61 years of marriage.

Cathy leaves a legacy of love with her children: Richard of Spring Lake, NJ, Theresa (Mark) Ferretti of Spring Lake, NJ, Mary (Jim) Kelly of Tomkins Cove, NY, Peggy Baker of Bardonia, NY and Stephen (Jackie) Baker of Mahwah, NJ. She is pre-deceased by her daughter, Kathleen her husband, Richard and her siblings, Bob and Ruth. She is survived by her brothers John (Carole) Guldner, Thomas (Donna) Guldner, and sister Fran (Tom) Crammer.

Catherine was beloved Nana to 10 grandchildren, Mark, Kathleen, Michael, James, Laura, Daniel, Matthew, Robert, John, and McKenna, their spouses and 5 great grandchildren, Madeline, Gabriella, Noah, McCall, and Henry.

A meeting with Mother Theresa of Calcutta, now Saint Theresa in the fall of 1975, forever inspired her devotion and tireless work as founder/director and member of the Board of Directors of Birthright of Rockland County. She ultimately served as the New York State Regional Consultant for Birthright International. Cathy touched the lives of many through her faith filled service and contagious smile. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Birthright of Rockland County in Nanuet, NY. (birthright.org/Nanuet).

Visiting hours will be held at Higgins Funeral Home, New City, NY on Thursday March 28, 2019 from 2-4 and 7-9. A Funeral mass is scheduled for Friday, March 29, 2019 at 11am at St. Francis of Assisi Church in West Nyack, NY.

During their formative years, many youngsters get their first ideas about careers from their parents. That tradition held true today, with the children of five officers who donned the Port Authority Police
Department uniform for many years following in their fathers’ footsteps in joining the force.

Ward, a Manhattan College graduate, remembers dressing up in his retired father’s PAPD gear and playing cops and robbers with the neighbors’ children. Growing up, Gerard fell in love with the bagpipes and has been playing since the age of eight. His musical skills landed him a scholarship in 2013 from the Port Authority Police Pipes and Drums.

MOBIT: Mary P. Cadigan, wife of Cadigan, Joseph [MC1941 RIP]



Mary P. Cadigan | March 28, 2019

Mary P. Cadigan died peacefully at home in Garden City at the age of 94. She was born an only child to Dr. John and Irene McCaffrey in Brooklyn, NY. She attended Our Lady of Perpetual Help and The Mary Louis Academy. As a child, she enjoyed summers at Spring Lake NJ.

Along with the teachings of her mom and dad, her education and faith took a strong hold on her and determined her future life. While in high School, her family moved to Floral Park where she attended and graduated from Sewanaka High School in 1941. At a time when most women went to work, Mary attended and graduated from Adelphi University in 1945 when the campus consisted of only 3 buildings. She was an active member of the Kappa Alpha Theta National sorority until her death. Being a young motivated woman, she continued her education and earned her master’s degree in teaching at Columbia University. Columbia was where she borrowed a book from a classmate, Joseph Cadigan. Upon the return of the book, he jokingly asked her to take him out to lunch, and he quickly became the love of her life. He had been a lieutenant in the Navy during WWII, graduated Manhattan College and was also getting a master’s in education. They married in 1947 at Our Lady of Victory in Floral Park with a reception at the Garden City hotel. Joseph was the principal of Stewart Manor School for many years, he assumed principal and administrator positions in Elmont and Port Washington and post retirement worked for the Garden City School District Adult Education.

Their mutual values of God, family and education were part of the recipe that bonded them together. They married and had 7 children whom they cherished dearly. Their first test of strength and faith was when they lost their son Jeff at the tender age of five from cancer. Mom always reminded us, that “children are lent to their earthly mothers and we all belong to God”. She was predeceased by her husband Joseph, another son, John, her daughter Mary Conroy and her grandson, Kevin Conroy. Through it all, she continued to be a pillar of faith and strength for her family. She stopped teaching in Baldwin upon the birth of her first child. In later years, when her children were grown, she returned to teach homebound students in Baldwin. She raised her family in Garden City and enjoyed summers at her home in Connecticut at The Candlewood Lake Club.

She was active in the Mercy League, St. Joseph’s Rosary Society, Long Island Panhellenic, Girl Scouts, CCD as an instructor, her children’s school events and many additional community organizations. Along with her husband Joe, she was a Eucharistic minister for the homebound of St. Joseph’s Church in Garden City. She was determined to attend Annual Kappa Alpha Theta Christmas Teas at Adelphi and class reunions until her last year. She was honored to be photographed with Robert A. Scott the president of Adelphi at her 70th college reunion in 2015.

Mary continually modeled faith, love, and respect for her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren whom she loved unconditionally. She laid a foundation of strong morals and values for her family to carry on in her legacy.

All who knew her were aware that she never missed an opportunity to share a lengthy, detailed story. Whether it made you laugh or made you cry, the story left people in awe due to her phenomenal memory of people, places, dates and events. She never intentionally tried to be humorous but, in the end, her words and thoughts always made others laugh. She loved being in the company of others, especially children and she loved family parties! Around the house you could often hear her singing and humming old tunes. In her later years she mostly looked forward to spending time with her family. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren brought her so much joy and a reason to carry on. As she always said to them “You light up my life!”

Until her death, she prayed everyday with intentions for family, friends, her home health aides and even strangers she saw on the news. Every night she prayed for the homeless, poor, sick and misdirected. Mary always sincerely thanked God for her wonderful life and her so many blessings.

A mass of Christian burial was held at St. Joseph’s in Garden City and Holy Rood in Westbury. With a reception of family and friends at the Garden City Country Club. Mary is survived by Jay (Pam), Jerry (Bette), Irene (John), Lori (Bob) son in law John Conroy, 21 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren. She was adored by all and will forever be in our hearts.

The family thanks Garden City friends especially Kip Owen, Gerry Kelly and Eileen Casey for taking time to visit her and to all those that reached out to our family since her death. In her memory she would like you to please visit lonely neighbors and children in cancer hospitals. Donate blood or give to St. Jude’s Children’s hospital.

ENDNOTE: Migrant Violence Illustrates A Need For A Reality Check



Austrian Monks give Up Feeding Poor After Homeless Migrant Violence
21 Mar 2019

*** begin quote ***

Austrian Franciscan monks in Salzburg will cease feeding the poor after a number of violent incidents from foreign migrants.

The food service for the poor ended officially following an incident on Sunday in which four Romanian migrant beggars started fighting with each other in front of the Franciscan church, with monk Father Oliver also being physically attacked, as well, Kronen Zeitungreports.

*** end quote ***

These are not “migrants” or “refugees”, who deserve our help.

These ARE free-loading street thugs who are a public nuisance.

I continued to be amazed at how those on the dole seem to have new expensive sneakers, smart phones, jewelry, artistic hair treatments, and flashy expensive nail art.

Sorry, that’s not my vision of a poor person who needs my charity.

I recently gave money to girl who needed glasses; that need was vouched for by a Christian missionary.  Obviously authentic.  The girl and her single Mom were clean and neat but had nothing like the list above.

Effective and efficient charity requires discrimination.  Something the Gooferment isn’t good at.
