POSITRACTION: How Josie fell in love with America


For the Love of Veterans
by Beth Lamb with contributions from Joe Brown, Lisa Donna and Sylvia Jackson

*** begin quote ***

Josie Koonce would tell you her love story in such a way that you became a part of it. Amidst bombing and the horrors of World War II, a young German girl met a member of the U.S. Air Force. Part one of the love story is the American Airman who swept her off her feet and became her husband. Part two of the love story is how Josie fell in love with America.

[JR: Great people can be identified by the great work that they do. Quiet heros. They take ownership of the problem and it's no longer a problem. A labor of love with a love of labor. Where do we find the giants to replace them?]

Dear John,

I just received this notice from John Nason,’52 reporting that his classmate, George Boyle passed away. I knew George as well, and he was a loyal Jasper and a fun guy at a Party.

May He Rest In Peace.

From: John Nason
To: McEneney Mike & Cathie


Just heard, within the hour, that my classmate George Boyle ‘52 died yesterday. His wife, Ginny, called with he news. It was not unexpected. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December and given six months to live. So he exceeded that. We’ve talked on a regular basis since the cancer was detected. He said he was grateful to have time to go out on an orderly basis, and he did. The whole family was even able to take their annual vacation on the Outer Banks in July. George was my closest friend at Manhattan. We did everything together: He was Student Council president and I was Quad editor and we had a ball. I know I can count on you to pass it on to the Manhattan network. Best to Cathie.

George Boyle
July 31, 1930 – August 14, 2011


George B Boyle, 81, passed away on August 14, 2011, surrounded by the people he loved and that loved him.

George is survived by his wife of 57 years, Virginia and their children, Virginia and her husband Glenn Morris of Lansdale, PA, Patricia of Raleigh, NC, George and his wife Elizabeth of Irvington, NY, Christopher and his wife Carol of Garden City, NY and James and his wife Maureen of Garner NC. In the circle and closest to his heart were his five grandchildren, Jack, Sarah, Christopher, Matthew and Caitlin Boyle.

George was a longtime resident of Garden City, NY and Caroga Lake, NY before moving to Cary, NC in 1988 then to Pittsboro, NC in 2005.

George was a worker, leader and mentor. He received academic scholarships to both Bishop Loughlin High School and Manhattan College in NY. At Manhattan, he was Student Council President, Managing Editor of the school’s newspaper and President of the Debate Society. In the May, 1952 issue of the Manhattan College Newspaper, The Quadrangle, an article stated, “There is no doubt that Mr. Boyle achieved the extra-curricular acme here at Manhattan, but it’s likewise true that not a man on campus worked as diligently and conscientiously to earn these accolades. He is living testimony of the axiom that success comes to those who work hardest for it.”

In 1954, he graduated from Columbia Law School. His law career started in NYC with the firm Mitchell, Petty followed by Brown and Wood, where he was a senior partner. In 1988, he joined Poyner and Spruill, LLC, in Raleigh, NC. Throughout his career, he specialized in Public Finance. He was an invaluable legal advisor to the former State Treasurer, Harlan Boyles and local municipalities.

George will be remembered for his deep faith, love of his wife and family, willingness to debate all, and passing quiet time with a newspaper, hot tea and a roll of his favorite candy, Necco wafers.

There will be a visitation on Friday, August 19, 2011 from 6pm-8pm at Apex Funeral Home, 550 Williams Street, Apex, NC 27502. A funeral mass will be held on Saturday, August 20, 2011 at 10am at St. Andrew The Apostle Catholic Church, 3008 Old Raleigh Rd. Apex, NC.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to your favorite charity.

JHQ: Peter Zipf ’79 @ NYPA


Taking the Helm at the Port Authority

Anyone who has ever flown into New York City, driven from Manhattan to New Jersey or taken the PATH train has benefited from the work of Peter Zipf ’79, chief engineer at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ). Zipf oversees a team of more than 1,000 employees and engineering consultants who ensure the structural integrity and construction management of the Port Authority’s design, bridges and tunnels, rail, ports and aviation projects.

Zipf, a long-time veteran of the PANYNJ who began his career as a project manager with the agency in 1985, was appointed chief engineer last November when his predecessor, Frank Lombardi, retired. Lombardi, who was the Commencement speaker and honorary degree recipient at the College’s 2007 Spring Commencement, has served as a consultant to the civil engineering department, and was recently a recipient of the Distinguished Mentor Award for his work with the College’s mentor program.

“One of my key roles is the overall delivery of design and construction for a significant portion of the capital and operating programs at the Port Authority,” Zipf says. “We typically oversee about $700 million of construction work a year.”

The Port Authority is the nation’s largest infrastructure agency, overseeing an area of approximately 1,500 square miles surrounding New York Harbor. The agency conceives, builds, operates and maintains infrastructure critical to the New York/New Jersey region, where more than 17 million people live. Facilities under PANYNJ’s jurisdiction include America’s busiest airport system, marine terminals and ports, the PATH rail transit system, six tunnels and bridges between New York and New Jersey, the Port Authority Bus Terminal and the World Trade Center.

Among the long-term projects Zipf and his team are currently working on is the raising of the Bayonne Bridge, which will raise the bridge deck up 65 feet to accommodate the future larger container ships. He is also working on the replacement of the Goethals Bridge, the rebuilding of the roadways entering the Lincoln Tunnel from the New Jersey side, the planning of rebuilding the Central Terminal at LaGuardia Airport, and the planning for the rebuilding of Terminal A at Newark Liberty International Airport.

During the course of his 25 years with the Port Authority, Zipf has worked on numerous projects, but the redevelopment of Newark Liberty International Airport in the 1980s stands out as particularly noteworthy. This project included the construction of parking structures, a monorail system and roadway network.

“It was a challenging planning, design and construction program that I got involved with at the very beginning,” he says. “So it was great experience to see the vast array of what it means to be an engineer.”

In addition to his instrumental role at PANYNJ, Zipf is also doing his part to lead the next generation of engineers. He’s been a part of Manhattan’s mentor program and also mentors students at Polytechnic Institute of New York, where he earned his master’s degree.

He has long been ingrained in the Manhattan College community. Zipf hails from a Jasper family — his father is a class of 1940 engineering alumnus and his brother graduated in 1970 from the education school. In 2007, Zipf was inducted into the College’s Athletic Hall of Fame as a member of the championship 1978 swim team. He currently holds the Manhattan diving record for the 1-meter and 3-meter dives, a record previously held by his brother.

Zipf was an outstanding student at Manhattan, graduating first in his civil engineering class with a G.P.A. of 3.96. His ascension in his career is a testament to his talent and work ethic, but he also praises Manhattan for the strong foundation he received at the College.

“Manhattan College is known for its pragmatic approach to engineering, and it clearly stands out,” Zipf says. “But what I liked about Manhattan is that it gives you the broader sense of the person, too. Taking theology classes and other non-technical classes that you don’t get at a pure technical institute really balances you, which is important for engineers today.”

JHQ: MC records record service hours


August 9, 2011


RIVERDALE, N.Y. –– Manhattan College’s Lasallian Leaders logged more than 1,806 service hours during the 2010-2011 school year. The program, which launched in 2005, will have a new crop of Lasallian Leaders on campus when the fall semester begins in late August.

Manhattan College awarded nine 2011 high school graduates dedicated to serving their community with Lasallian Leaders scholarships. The scholarship program was founded as a way to acknowledge prospective Manhattan students, who previously attended a Lasallian Catholic high school and are committed to community service and expanding service to the College community similar to the ideals of St. John Baptist de La Salle, the founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. Past and present Lasallian Leaders recipients come from Lasallian Catholic high schools in: Albany, N.Y., Baltimore, Md., Brooklyn, N.Y., Chicago, Ill., Cincinnati, Ohio, Denver, Colo., Lincroft, N.J., Manitowoc, Wis., Minneapolis, Minn., Napa, Calif., Portland, Ore., Providence R.I., Staten Island, N.Y., and Washington D.C.

“Students who receive the Lasallian Leaders scholarship attempt to develop creative ways of integrating the mission with campus life programs, utilizing a base of students who have already experienced a Lasallian educational environment prior to attending Manhattan College,” explained Br. Charles Barbush, F.S.C., program coordinator of the Center for Career Development’s Mentor Program and the Lasallian Scholars Program.

Recipients of the scholarship take an active role in spreading the word on Lasallian traditions to classmates and meeting monthly to collaborate on planning events on campus that raise awareness of the College’s heritage. The Lasallian Leaders also participate in various activities throughout the year, such as speaking at freshmen orientation, assisting resident assistants, creating Residence Hall projects, joining the Relay for Life and much more. In addition, Lasallian Leaders are also required to complete 30 hours of service a semester to maintain their scholarship and are each involved in a service project through campus ministry and social action, Habitat for Humanity, the Methodist Home or Visitation Parish School.

“The Lasallian Leaders scholarship has not only helped me to continue my studies at Manhattan by providing a source of financial aid but has also given me the opportunity to meet new people and participate in school wide and local community events,” said Anthony Marmora ’12. “More importantly, it has allowed me to appreciate and practice the Lasallian principles that characterize a Lasallian Leader both on campus and in the community.”

There are also many other ways to serve on and off campus for the entire Manhattan College community including through The Arches, the College’s new learning and living program. More than 100 new first-year students will begin their college years living together this fall on the same floor in East Hill, taking two classes with their floor mates and exploring New York City by participating in community service and social and cultural excursions. Still others will choose to travel to some of the poorest areas of the world with the College’s Lasallian Outreach Volunteer Experience (L.O.V.E.), which is part of the campus ministry and social action (CMSA) department.

According to Lois Harr, director of CMSA at the College, “We have to think of ourselves as salt and leaven. A little bit has to go a long way.”

Harr explained that there are several components to their programs, which offer everyone with an opportunity to learn while serving. They include religious activities, social action, community service and promoting the Lasallian mission.

Danielle Valente plans to leave Long Island when she graduates from Manhattan College a year from now. She won’t be alone.

When asked if she knows anybody in her age group who plans to make a go of it on Long Island, the 21-year-old senior from North Massapequa quickly says.” I don’t.”

“Everybody is gravitating towards Manhattan or going back to their home-towns. Most people I know from in and around this area don’t really want to stay,”

12:34 AM, Aug. 18, 2011
White Plains resident Lisa Daley competes at the 2011 World Masters track championships in Sacramento, Calif.

*** begin quote ***

Lisa Daley is a lawyer. She represents union workers in White Plains and Yonkers as well as the Bronx. On an average week she makes three trips to the courtroom, spends late night hours working on cases and works more than 40 hours a week, dedicating herself to her profession.

A demanding job that requires sticking to a strenuous schedule may be enough for some to balance, but for Daley there is that and more.

This summer, while competing in the 40-44 year-old division of the World Masters Championships in Sacramento, CA, the 41-year-old earned gold medals in the 200 and 400 meters, 4×100-meter relay and the 4×400 while setting a new American Masters record of 63.9 seconds in the 400-meter hurdles to break her own record of 64.40. The accomplishment was one of the most prized of her career.

The new morality of New York’s governor
Posted: August 01, 2011 1:47 pm Eastern
Les Kinsolving

*** begin quote ***

One of the ablest of all the Catholic Church’s newspaper columnists is The Wanderer’s James Fitzpatrick.

He has raised what is no doubt a major problem of what might be called TNMGNY (for: “The new morality of the governor of New York”).

Amazingly, Catholic layman and Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s living with a singularly attractive mistress named Sandra Lee was defended in the Jesuit magazine America, by Jesuit priest William J. O’Malley.

*** end quote ***

[JR: "Living in sin". Advocating for abortion. Redefining marriage. What does "giving public scandal" mean? And, shouldn't we hold "leaders" to an even higher standard of behavior? ]
