POSITRACTION: Homeless Man Gets Housing and Work Thanks to Teen Girl



Homeless Man Gets Housing and Work Thanks to Teen Girl Who Saw His Plea for a Job at a Bus Stop
By McKinley Corbley - Mar 27, 2019

*** begin quote ***

A homeless man has been given a job and a roof over his head thanks to a teenager who saw his impassioned plea.

In a bid to find himself a job, 37-year-old Anthony Johnson posted a “Work Wanted” sign at a Hastings bus stop in Sussex, England.

The sign read: “I will do a trial for free to show how I work. I don’t take drugs or drink. I will also do dog walking/minding, window cleaning, shopping, gardening, car valeting/washing, housework, cooking.”

“Anything to earn a living and make life seem worth living,” he added.

Luckily, the note was spotted by 16-year-old Charlotte Howard. After she snapped some photos of Johnson’s sign and tent, she posted them to social media and started a GoFundMe page in hopes of drumming up enough cash to buy him a used caravan.

*** and ***.

“I wouldn’t have got anywhere looking for a job if it wasn’t for her,” he added. “She really is incredible.”

*** end quote ***

Amazing how a motivated teenager can solve a individual’s problem.

How many “opportunities” to do the same have I missed in my life?

Charity is best done by individual effort and look what one youngster can do.

Imagine what a society can do.

JUPDATE: Clegg, John C. [MC1958 RIP] id-ed by McEneney, Mike (MC1953)


JOBIT: Clegg, John C. [MC1958 RIP] 2019-May-04

Obituary: John C. Clegg
By John Corrigan

John C. Clegg, father of Clegg Promo (asi/45450) founder and CEO Tim Clegg and company president Kevin Clegg, passed away on May 4.

Clegg was class president and valedictorian in high school, a mathematics major at Manhattan College, a computer programmer at Sperry Gyroscope, manager of information systems at ATO/SMG and then chief information officer at Standard Products.

In 1994, Clegg threw himself into a new role as gadfly, ombudsman and outside factory rep for Clegg Industries. He relished traveling through Ohio and the Midwest, visiting distributors in offices, parking lots, homes and barns. Not only did he become a master at presenting the Clegg line, he also became well known on the trade show circuit. In addition to presenting, he was a tireless proofreader and editor for numerous Clegg and Americhip catalogs.

Community service was the work Clegg most enjoyed and for which he will be lovingly remembered. He was a coach, referee and commissioner of the basketball program for the Chagrin Athletic Association, a board member on the Chagrin Valley Rec Center, a lector at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church and a fixture at all Chagrin Falls High School sporting events for over 50 years.

“Our Dad loved Clegg and Americhip and he gave his all to make us a better organization,” said Tim and Kevin. “We were so blessed to have him as our father and equally as fortunate to have him as part of the Clegg and Americhip team. We’ll continue to work hard, do well, improve, treat people well and make a difference in what we do and in how we do it. We know that would make our Dad very proud of us.”

Clegg was a beloved husband to Eileen Dearie Clegg for 59 years. He was the father of seven children and 21 grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to a “Membership Scholarship in the Name of John C. Clegg” at the Chagrin Valley Rec. Center, PO Box 84, Chagrin Falls, OH 44022.

Good Evening All,

Mike McEneney asks for our prayers for Dave Rice, Son-in-Law of Mike's Friend and Class Mate, Tom Kelleher '53. Dave has been in our prayers as we pray for him and his Family during his battle with Cancer. Dave's Wife, Jane (Tom's Daughter) has shared the following inspiring and loving update. Please raise the volume for this Good Man and his Family as they share this difficult part of their journey. We pray for complete recovery. We pray for the success of the current round of treatments and that the Doctors get the disease under control
and in remission. Thank you. God Bless.

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

Jane Rice‎ to Dave's Brave Fight

With Dave’s most recent scans it seems that his cancer is progressing…. It not only shows the tumors enlarging but also a new development in his left kidney. Hopefully that will be addressed by putting a stent in to help it drain. The cause has yet to be determined. We should know more once that procedure is done. Unfortunately, this means that he will need to begin chemo once again. Ugh, he’s been through so much already. He has been getting away with just a Herceptin infusion every three weeks to keep it at bay. It has taken us about a week to wrap our heads around this to post it. He looks so good and on the most part is feeling well. On a good note, we have been very diligent about spending quality family time and having fun. (Have I told you how wonderful our girls and their significant others are?) We most recently took a family cruise to the Caribbean. Lots of blue water, sunshine, fresh air and great company. We even got to parasail! We always manage to have lots of fun playing as a family!

Obituary for Jennifer Harding McGeown

Jennifer Harding McGeown - Devoted mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin and friend, lost her long battle with cancer on May 5, 2019.

Jennifer was one tough nut to crack and she gave the cancer and everyone else around her a run for their money. It provided her the opportunity to remove her pain in the ass and her colon. She grew up in Roslyn Heights, attending St. Mary’s and the Our Lady of Mercy Academy, Syosset. Jen was an excellent athlete, organizer and volunteer, skills she brought to Manhattan College, where she played softball. Her career took her into educational, care and athletic based settings, when she landed at Pierce Country Day as a devoted employee.

Jennifer appreciated the support and kindness given to her by the Pierce Family. What Jennifer loved the most was family. At the top of the list were her girls, Emma and Maureen. Jennifer provided them with love, encouragement and an example of bravery and courage to carry them through life.

She was a devoted daughter to T. Peter and the late Patricia and a sister who could always be counted on for a good wisecrack to Maura Clow (Harry), Ted (Jenny), Tim (Jeanine) and Meaghan Tuttle (Ryan). Jennifer loved her many aunts and uncles and cousins, and could always be counted on to “bring the weenies” and take pictures to make sure everyone would remember our times together. Jennifer was a loyal friend and will be missed by many.

Visitation Wednesday 4:00-9:00PM at Roslyn Heights Funeral Home 75 Mineola Ave. Roslyn Heights, NY. Funeral Mass Thursday 10:00AM at St. Mary’s RC Church Roslyn Harbor, NY. Private cremation to follow.

In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be sent to Our Lady of Mercy Academy, 815 Convent Road, Syosset, NY 11791. Donations are designated for tuition assistance. Checks should be made out to Our Lady of Mercy Academy.

ADMINISTRIVIA: I'm creating a "Jasper" — alumni of manhattan college — wiki for articles


I am (again) creating a "Jasper" — alumni of manhattan college — wiki for articles about out alumni that don't make the cut in wikipedia.

I'd like to use all the features that I find in Wikipedia.  I’m not sure that is exactly possible; I may have to copy over some of the templates they use.

For example, I wrote a Wikipedia page about "John Fandel", a manhattan college teacher who had some fame as a poet. It was rejected as "not noteworthy enough" despite having a "dead" reference on several pages.

So, I'd like to put it on my "Jasper Wiki".

I tried once already on a mediawiki on BlueHost and within two weeks the site was destroyed by Chinese hackers.

The way I read the CIVIHOSTING offering, they will install and secure it for me if I subscribe. I can do the content and they make sure it's safe.

Of course, it'll be "small potatoes" in terms of usage but I'd am going to try again.

At some point in time, perhaps the manhattan college alumni office would like to take it over but that's a long way off.  By using a well know platform, if and when Alma Mater decides to take it over it would be easy.

Of course, this will die with me.

But if we can get others to participate as content creators, perhaps we can make it into something.

I already have a lot of info on Jaspers in Jasper Jottings, so it should be “fun”.

As always your thoughts, contributions, and participation is welcome and invaluable.

Details to follow.

JNEWS: Logan, Doug [MC1965] is a wanderer



Florida man, 75, takes 400-mile hike through Spain
By Timothy Fanning Staff Writer
Posted at 1:00 PM

Doug Logan, a Vietnam veteran with two bronze stars, who went on to promote concerts for the Rolling Stones, is lacing his boots and strapping on a ruck sack. Again.

SARASOTA — Doug Logan is a wanderer. Folks around here call him “the Siesta Key Guy” or the “unofficial mayor of Midnight Pass Road.” He’s out there every day. Sometimes with a hiking backpack stuffed with bags of kitty litter. Other times he’s wearing a Santa hat or a Halloween mask. It all depends.

Call him whatever you want. Don’t call him retired.

“Napoleon retired at Waterloo; he gave up and became a snowbird on the island of Elba. I don’t want to be the Napoleon of Siesta Key,” said Logan, 75, pushing through one of his last 10-mile hikes from his home on Siesta Key to a cafe on St. Armands Circle for a cappuccino and a chocolate macaron.

Logan’s been training for the last two and a half months. He’s preparing for something big.
Doug Logan on previous Camino treks

On April 30, he’ll check his 30-pound backpack, hiking boots and a cutout photo of Chloe, his 2-year-old granddaughter, and board a plane for Lisbon, Portugal.

Logan’s not going to wander the Torre de Belém, stuff himself with Bacalhau ŕ Brás or wash it down with a glass of Ginjinha.

*** and ***

Logan is a Vietnam survivor with two Bronze Stars, who went on to promote concerts for the likes of U2, Michael Jackson and the Rolling Stones, and then, for a time, book performances at the Van Wezel.

So why is the 75-year-old lacing up hiking boots and strapping on a rucksack to set off again?

“I’m at page 500 of a 600-page book,” said Logan. “The other attempts were to flip through the first 500 pages of my life.”

*** and ***

In 1964, during his senior year at Manhattan College, Logan was drafted into the military. Then, in 1966, came a year of lying in the mud with the 101st airborne, getting shot at in the mountains, jungles and rice paddies of central Vietnam.

In 1980, Logan married his wife, Ann. Son Carter came in 1982, then Phil two years later.

Nine 401(k) Mistakes You Don’t Even Know You Are Making
After having hundreds of conversations with various pharmaceutical executives, I’ve consistently noticed the lack of thought that is given to their 401(k) plans at work.

JOBIT: Rodenburg, George Bartholomew [MC1948 RIP] 2019-May-12



May 12, 2019

RODENBURG, George Bartholomew, 92, died at home, surrounded by his children, on Wednesday, May 8, 2019, after several months of declining health.

George was born on December 4, 1926, in New York, New York, and was the eldest child of George Sjerp Rodenburg and Jennie Higgins Rodenburg. He grew up in Manhattan, where he rode his tricycle on the roof and played curb-ball, ringolevio and stickball in the streets. He attended Good Shepherd School and graduated from Cardinal Hayes High School. George enlisted in the United States Navy in 1944, just after his 18th birthday and served overseas for two years. After being honorably discharged, George returned to New York to attend college. He graduated with honors in 1948, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Manhattan College and, in 1950, received a Master of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from Niagara University.

Afterwards, he accepted a job with Infilco and moved to Tucson, Arizona, where he met and married his beloved Kathleen. There, they started their family and eventually moved with the company to Richmond in 1971. George worked his entire career at Infilco, first as a Chemical Engineer and later as a Contract Manager.

George was a prudent, pragmatic man who spoke bluntly and loved his family and friends deeply. He was a devout Catholic, an active member of St. Joseph's Parish in Richmond, Virginia, and belonged to the Ancient Order of Hibernians. He was a voracious reader, an avid Jeopardy fan, loved classical music and opera and collected anything related to Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang. He had a great love for all things Irish, most notably his extended Higgins family, both here in the U.S. and across the pond. Shortly before his passing, while recalling good times and sharing a Guinness with his brother, Roy, he remarked, "It's good to be Irish."

George was preceded in death by his parents, George and Jennie Rodenburg; and his beloved wife of 56 years, Kathleen Brown Rodenburg. He is survived by his four children, Anne Rodenburg Schlicher, Monica Mary Durrette (Wyatt), George John Rodenburg (Jill) and Martha Jane Rodenburg; seven grandchildren, Sarah Anne Harvey (Ben), Heidi Schlicher Cook (Kevin), Robert Hans Schlicher (Taylor), Matthew Adam Schlicher, George Daniel Rodenburg, Kathleen Connor Quaine and Andrew Ray Rodenburg; three great-grandchildren, Hazel Joan Cook, John Harris Cook and Kinley Therese Cook; his brother, Ruurd Rodenburg (Rosemarie); nieces, Patricia Rodenburg, Kathleen Rodenburg Albert (Todd); nephew, Roy Rodenburg; cousins, Mary Higgins Clark, James McCormack (Virginia), Patrick Higgins (Rita), Gerard Higgins, John Higgins; their children, and a slew of much loved in-laws, nieces and nephews on his wife, Kathleen's, side of the family.

The family will receive friends Wednesday, May 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Woody Funeral Home, 1020 Huguenot Road. A rosary service will be held at 5 p.m. prior to the visitation. A requiem Mass will be held Thursday, May 16, at 11 a.m. at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 828 Buford Road, a reception will follow. Burial with military honors will be held Friday, May 17, at 11 a.m. in Virginia Veterans Cemetery at Amelia, 10300 Pridesville Road, Amelia, Virginia.

ENDNOTE: 'Smart Meters' are a 'heart problem'?



Smart Meters Cause Changes To The Heart
Posted on Apr 28, 2019, 5 p.m.

*** begin quote ***

Dr. Gilbertos Leon warns about this, saying these changes to the heart caused by smart meters are anything but symptomless or silent and major damages can take place without people even realizing it. Constant bombardment of microwave radiation from smart meters represents “and unnatural sequence of events we are not programmed to respond to… long-term exposure to smart meters can be extremely damaging to normal myocardial function.”

*** end quote ***

Well, we know that a microwave oven if it leaks can damage a pacemaker.  So why are we “surprised” that a microwave transmitter aka “smart meter” may have similar properties.

I’m sure our wise and powerful overlords, aka politicians and bureaucrats, will investigate if too many subjects are killed.  Till then “let them eat cake”!
