Marlene is a standout student, All-League soccer player and mentor at the Nepperham Community Center. She also helped organize YMA’s Heroes and Leaders Program, the WAlk Against Breast Cancer, homecoming, a teacher student basketball game and carnival.

With the help of the $2,500 Mayor’s Award scholorship, Marlene is headed to Manhattan College.

Special thanks to Yonkers Contracting for sponsoring the award once again the year!”

Sounds as though she will make a great JASPER!

JEMAIL: Toner, Mike (MC1972) nails the White Castle down


> MFACEBOOK: Ever a White Castle by Manhattan College? 2014-Jul-06

Dear f. John,

Yes, there was a White Castle on the corner where Manhattan College Parkway intersects with Broadway just north of the subway station. Looking at google maps pictures of the current intersection, I remember it as south of the Burger King, where there is currently an island of vegetation/trees. Definitely in that intersection area and not as far north as BK. This is long before alma mater’s dorm was there.

A quick internet search found a reference to it in someone’s memoir of the
VCP area in the early sixties…

JEMAIL: Mallanda, John (MC1967) spots an error Beldy, Daniel L. III [MC1967? RIP]



I checked my yearbook and confirmed that Daniel Beldy did not graduate from Manhattan in 1967.  From his birth date, we may want to try 1961.

JEMAIL: Yamaoka, Joseph (MC1956) want the borders secured


EMAIL FROM Yamaoka, Joseph (MC1956)

# – # – #  

Dear Friends,

“The man charged with raping a woman in her Rittenhouse Square apartment last weekend was caught illegally entering the country from Mexico last year, according to customs officials.”

That is the first paragraph of the following article.


How many other violent illegal immigrants like him are in this country?

What do you think the odds are that a 9/11 type terrorist has already illegally gained entry across our borders?

If you also believe that our borders need to be secured, please send a copy of this article to all of your friends.

Thank you.

Joe Y.

[JR: The situation is a national disaster and disgrace. As a little L libertarian, I think that good people who want to work here should be welcomed at the border, “serviced” (i.e., physical; documented; fingerprinted; DNA-ed; and given a short orientation), and issued a “green card”. Criminals should be booted quickly. Those, who want to sponge, also booted. It would be much more humane and we need folks who want to work hard, play by the rules, and live in peace. imho! ]

JEMAIL: McFadden, Michael J. [MC1973] cites a blog


McFadden, Michael J. [MC1973]

A blog reading you might find interesting…

*** begin quote ***

A splendid example of Gooferment in action to protect us (although it’s actually the New Zealand Gooferment….)

*** and ***

Where will it all stop?

Somebody please point out the justification for government control of language. Did we all become so weak minded overnight that the mere sight of a word will cause us all to become alcoholic, cigarette smoking, gun wielding sex-shoppists? And more to the point, will we all look fucking lovely as we undergo our metamorphosis? No, of course not. This is the work of a group of self centered, self important, people on a mission to mould the world into their personal vision of ideal.

One thing we absolutely must resist is a move towards this kind of tyranny. The people who successfully stole all public spaces for themselves are now coming for your language. It’s time to wake up and say “stop the madness”. We have seen tobacco control lie, cheat, and even attempt to rewrite history on occasion. Now they want to rewrite the dictionary. This has to end. These selfish psychopaths have to be stopped.

*** end quote ***

[JR: Interesting.]

JEMAIL: Ferrara, Richard (MC1972) quibbles with McEneney, Mike (MC1953)



1. Joe Savage was Class of 1974.

2. The opening lines of the obit for Kleinsmith say:

“Gene E. Kleinsmith Jr.
June 24, 1964 – May 26, 2014.” He can’t be Class of 1959. Looks as though it should be 1995. “Fat finger syndrome?”

Thanks for all you do, and regards,

Rich Ferrara ‘72

[JR: Are you suggesting I could have made a mistake? if Mike says it’s 59, it’s 59! (Obviously the old fellow typing skills leave something to be desired but you get what you pay for.) LAFF!!]

# – # – # – # – #  2014-Jun-06 @ 12:42  

Dear John,

There is a typo in my email below. Gene is a member of the Class of 1995 NOT 1959!

Sorry about that!


McEneney, Mike (MC1953)

[JR: Thanks, Mike. Much appreciated. Laff! Typo in all these days? Musta been a computer or network error.]

[JR: Too young! Makes me sad on retrospect!]

It has been a busy few days for the McEneney Clan. The bride and I went up to Albany on Thursday to attend a reception for the Families and Graduates of Albany Law School . Graduation was Friday Morning for our Granddaughter Catherine McEneney Chan, ’10. On Saturday her Cousin Gregory Johnson (Son of Teri (McEneney) ’81 and her husband Chuck, ’80) graduated from U. Mass. (we did not attend). On Sunday Catherine’s younger brother, John Michael Chan was the NINTH member of the McEneney Clan to graduate from Manhattan! On Monday her older brother Christopher McEneney Chan graduated from Hofstra Law School. And finally on this Thursday, Gregory’s older sister, Lauren Johnson,’05 will receive her Masters Degree in Theological Studies from the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. We will be going up there early Thursday morning.

As you can see it has been and is a very proud and interesting time.
