I saw that you included the note in the Buffalo News and Buffalo Business First on my new job. I graduated from MC in 1982 with a BE in Chem Eng and 1984 with my masters in Env. Eng. After a great career in the Environmental, Health and Safety fields, I have returned to encourage girls to explore careers in Science Technology Engineering Art and Math.

These photos were taken at the new Chick-Fil-A on the morning of October 8, 2014 on Federal Road in Brookfield, Connecticut. It actually opens tomorrow, October 9, but people are camping out ahead of time waiting in line.

Rodriguez, Vincent [MC1984] 

[JR: Seriously? I can possibly see camping out if my life depended upon it. But for Chick-Fil-A? No way. I like the Chick-Fil-A product and their morality — anyone who puts their money were their mouth is deserves respect — right or wrong — no one should initiate force on another. But I wouldn’t camp for a sandwich! Talk about groupies and steeple. Oh well, to each their own.]

Senate’s unfinished business: Fill judicial vacancies
By Raymond M. Lodato

*** begin quote ***

The Senate has one week until it adjourns for its pre-election recess. While several bills are making their way through the upper house, the arena in which it can have the most impact is in confirming President Obama’s judicial nominees. So far this year, the upper house has filled 68 vacancies on the Federal bench, more than in all of 2013. However, even with the increased pace, 60 vacancies remain on Federal district and appellate benches.

Each vacancy in the Federal courts increases the burden on active and senior judges (who work a reduced number of cases in semi-retirement) and delays the administration of justice for individuals, businesses, and non-profit groups seeking resolution of their claims. Nearly two dozen of the vacancies have been classified as “judicial emergencies” because of the length of time they have been unfilled and the number of cases in their jurisdictions.

*** and ***

If the Senate confirms these 25 nominees by December (a best-case scenario, to be sure), it has an opportunity to significantly reduce the number of Federal courts saddled with an insufficient number of judges to handle heavy caseloads. Should the Senate end 2014 with less than 50 vacancies, it will be the lowest total of the Obama presidency, ensuring that more Americans have access to timely consideration of their cases in Federal courts.

Lodato, Ph.D., is a Lecturer at the University of Chicago.

[JR: “We, The Sheeple” screwed up when we passed the 17th Amendment for the direct election of Senators. The State Legislatures would have never stood for this non-sense. The House was for the rabble. The Senate was for the States. Argh! Dead Old White Guys must be rolling over. “Justice delayed is justice denied”? Thanks for the fodder. Hope everyone hits it and runs up "your score”.]

FJohn Reinke,

There was a White Castle at the foot of Manhattan College Parkway in the ’60s. My father used to take me there when I’d come to campus with him. It was gone by the time I went to Alma Mater (I think it was a Burger King by then).

# – # – #  

[JR: I never knew that. But I suspected if it was anywhere, it would be where Burger King is. I’d prefer White Castle. Laugh. Thanks.]

McCall, Tom [MC1972]

Wasn’t it a White Tower? The White Castle was on Fordham Road.

*** begin quote ***

PORT CHESTER, N.Y. – Richard Conway is one week into his new role as chief of the Port Chester Police Department, which he has been serving since 1986, and he is looking to make some improvements.

*** and ***

Conway graduated from Rye High School in 1976, and then Manhattan College in 1984, where he studied criminal justice and history. After college he taught at a Catholic school in the south Bronx and was a wrestling coach at Manhattan.

*** and ***

“I went from teaching at a Catholic school to being on the street buying drugs undercover every day,” he said. “I was very lucky I had a partner that was very good. We survived in one piece.”

Conway went on to become a sergeant in 1995 and a lieutenant in 1999. During that time he joined the Naval Reserve and earned his master’s degree in public administration from Pace University.
