God Evening All,

I have just heard from Jim Smith who received a call from Fr. Erwin Schweigardt. Fr. Erwin tells us his classmate and friend John Horgan ’61 is undergoing treatment for Leukemia and can use our prayers. I ask you to raise the volume for John and his family. We pray that John’s treatments are completely successful and return John to good health with no complications. Thank you for your prayers for so many. God Bless.

JFOUND: Monteith, Joseph L. [MC1961] has an award



The Joseph L. Monteith Award

Joseph L. Monteith began his law enforcement career in June of 1961 when he was appointed to the Suffolk County Police Department shortly after receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Manhattan College. He would later (1979) receive a Master’s degree in Management from his alma mater. During the next 39 years, Joe Monteith served in every rank within the SCPD, rising to the highest uniformed rank, Chief of the Department in 1989. Recognized as a natural leader, Joe was nominated in 1975 to attend the 100th Session of the FBI National Academy. In 1995, he attended the 18th Session of the FBI’s National Executive Institute. Chief Monteith served on the Executive Board of the New York State and Eastern Canada Chapter (NYSEC) becoming Chapter President in 1990.

Later elected as the Section IV Representative to the National Board, he advanced through the Chairs, culminating with his Presidency in 1998. While not the first Associate from the New York State and Eastern Canada Chapter to hold the position of President of the National FBINAA, Joe’s term was marked by great innovation looking towards the challenges and demands of the approaching 21st Century. Suffice it to say that Chief Monteith is regarded by all of his law enforcement colleagues to be a true professional and a man of marked integrity. He has served and continues to serve on a number of boards of professional and charitable organizations. The quintessential gentleman, Chief Monteith serves as a role model for all graduates of the FBI National Academy.

JEMAIL: Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961) critiques my “job”


Dar Jasper John

It took me a “job” of five minutes to find that your quote from the “21 year old Waco girl” was a hoax.
Alfred W Evans a girl’s name??

I suggest that you do your “job” of checking the accuracy of your writings

The unchristian spirit of the quote speaks for itself

[JR: So what if the quote is a “hoax”? The “unchristian spirit” of the quote is expressing a frustration with a system that doesn’t help poor people. I’ve ranted before that “Gooferment charity” aka “welfare” is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. The Grace Commission study cited that more than half of Gooferment spending is wasted. Frustration builds with the liberal socialism. Note that both the D’s and the R’s are responsible for this mess. And the deficit. LBJ’s War on Poverty has failed. And we have the “wealthiest” “poor” people in the world. I’ll do my own “charity” work. Humbly, privately, and silently. If the Gooferment would steal less from me, I could do more. And, I’m confident my fellow taxpayers would too. As far as “my job” here at Jasper Jottings. Well I think I’m doing it. This “hoax” is not the point.]

[JR: Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961) send in a snopes link to my rant “put me in charge” without comment.]


[JR: It has many pages of comments. I read a few. Don’t understand his point. I feel frustration with Gooferment “charity”. I’m sure, or I hope, others do as well. Dona Nobis Pacem  ]

JEMAIL: Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961) forwards “refutation” story



Prominent Jesuit: Pope Francis’s first major issuance ‘almost a direct refutation’ of the GOP
By Eric W. Dolan
Thursday, April 10, 2014 9:20 EDT

*** begin quote ***

Pope Francis’s first major publication can be read as an attack on the Republican philosophy of low taxes for the wealthy and reduced support of welfare programs, according to a prominent Jesuit professor.

During a panel discussion at Georgetown University last month, American Jesuit and Boston College professor David Hollenbach was asked how the faithful should engage with the poor in light of Pope Francis’s apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium.

“I think there are multiple dimensions,” Hollenbach replied. “One of course is to find ways to help people who are members of the Church find a way to be in contact, become friends with those who are poor — an experiential dimension. That’s very important. But I don’t myself think that is going to solve the whole problem, because I don’t think it is going to be — as much as the document says it is the responsibility of every Christian to become friends with the poor, I don’t think it is actually likely to happen very much, or at least to happen as much as it’s needed.”

[JR: Well, when I was in Catholic school, we were taught that the Pope’s infallibility was limited to faith and morals. In the realm of economics, he’s just another “sinner”. Unfortunately, I don’t like the R’s any more than the D’s. It’s been demonstrated that “private charity” is more moral, effective, and efficient than any Gooferment program. The best example is LBJ’s famous “war” on “poverty” which has ruined the Black community and created generations of (white and black) poverty “farmers”. I’m writing my check to the Federal and State thieves this week. If my taxes were lower, I could and would donate more. Not to mention that I donate to charities that don’t “qualify” for tax breaks. I’d assert that the Gooferment is like a junkie and more money just makes bigger problems. For example, Obamacare spending hundreds of millions to enroll arguably a few million. We’d have been better off to send each uninsured a check to buy insurance. But that wouldn’t have enriched the politicians, bureaucrats, and crony capitalists. Sorry but that Papal “refutation” makes me crazy.]
