New Paltz Resident Strikes Gold In Swimming

When it comes to being at one with the water, New Paltz resident Dan Winfield is a natural.

Whether it was at a pond in his hometown of Tuxedo, New York or competing at the collegiate level at Manhattan College, swimming has always been the one constant that resonated in his life. Last month, this active passion led him to compete and medal in the 2014 Federation of International Aquatics (FINA) Masters’ Swimming World Championships in Montreal, Canada at the bright and flourishing age of 69.

*** and ***

After progressively completing both the 100-meter and 50-meter freestyle after the other events, the 200-meter individual medley was where Winfield struck liquid gold. The individual medley consists of meter swimming in each stroke for 50 yeards apiece.

Winfield began with the butterfly stroke, then progressed with the backstroke, front stroke and concluded with freestyle. After spending four long days of competing every day, Winfield medaled in the 200 Individual Medley event.

*** and ***

“Someone can be 95 years old and they’re swimming relatively fast with a very efficient stroke and you can just tell that they were athletes for decades,” Winfield said. “The body slows up and you don’t swim as quickly as you remember swimming as you were younger. [The championship] had people swimming and diving well up into their 80s and 90s and it was certainly impressive to watch.”

*** and ***

After medaling at the national swimming championship, Winfield has since recently accomplished another feat of athleticism at a local level: The Survival of the Shawangunk Triathalon. This past Sunday, Sept. 7, he and his wife Marianne completed this eight-stage triathalon consisting of biking 30 miles, running 18 miles and swimming nearly two miles. Winfield, the only male competitor in his age group, completed the race in just over seven hours.

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.

JNEWS: Fife, William A. (MC1967) 2014 Metropolitan Section Civil Engineer of the Year Award



Metropolitan Section Civil Engineer of the Year Award 

The Section’s highest award recognizes a civil engineer who has rendered exceptional service to the civil engineering profession, to the Met Section and to the Society. The first award was presented to Emil H. Praeger on May 20, 1953 in the Engineering Societies Building for his design of Pier 57, the only pier in New York City built on floating concrete caissons. A former chief of the Navy Bureau of Design, Praegar also designed a floating concrete breakwater for the invasion of Normandy during World War II.

2014 Recipient:
William A. Fife, P.E.
The Fife Group

Bill Fife has over 45 years of engineering experience in aviation planning, design and construction. In the ASCE Met Section, he served on the Board, has been Chair of the Air Transport Group for over 20 years, and founded and chaired the group’s annual conference for the past 17 years. Along with his committee members, he has raised over $200,000 for the Met Section Scholarship Fund. He has also been active in senior level ASCE positions at the national level and in T&D I for over 20 years. Most recently, he served as T&D I’s Aviation Council Chair from 2006 to 2010.

His energetic commitment and contributions to the engineering profession and the aviation industry have been recognized both domestically and internationally. He was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration Eastern Region (FAA) at the 2003 Airport Conference. He is also a recipient of the Kavanagh Service Award from the ASCE Met Section, as well as community service awards from Professional Women in Construction, the Lighthouse for the Blind, and C. W. Post College.

Bill began his career in June 1967 as an engineering management trainee at the Port Authority of NY&NJ. He led and participated in major planning, design and construction projects while at the PANY&NJ and at AECOM. They include JFK 2000, LGA Redevelopment, Air Train JFK Planning, the N-Train to LGA Planning Study, the Philadelphia International Airport Master Planning Study, and many others. His development and implementation of the peer review process for airport and transit projects has been recognized worldwide. This process saves public agencies millions of dollars each year using “lessons learned” from other projects. He was recognized by Engineering News Record (ENR) as a 2000 Newsmaker for his efforts in developing and successfully implementing the peer review group process. He has also served as the liaison between owners and contractors, solving construction problems and enabling innovation in construction for projects such as the JetBlue Terminal at JFK.

Bill is a graduate of St. Francis Xavier High School and Manhattan College. He also holds Masters Degrees from Brooklyn Poly, now NYU, and Long Island University. He was a Captain in the US Air Force and served his country as a Bio-Environmental Engineer from 1970 to 1972. When not doing engineering, Bill volunteers with many organizations including the ASCE Met Section, Professional Women in Construction, the Sperry Board of Award, Transportation Research Forum, the CUNY Aviation Institute, and Sacred Heart Church. He also enjoys spending time playing bridge, exercising, yoga and traveling with his wife Pat, the former COO of VNA of Long Island. He loves to spend time with his children, Bill, a family practice doctor, Patrick, an attorney, and Lara, a nurse practitioner along with fine grandchildren.
