Students erected a mock border on Manhattan College’s quad to draw attention to the pope’s visit to border areas in Mexico.

Walking through Manhattan College’s quad this week, visitor will notice a new addition: a freestanding chain-link fence, about 30 yards long, covered in posters with pro-migrant slogans.

Sophomore Brianna DelSantos explained that the fence is a “mock border,” meant to represent a border between two countries that are divided and should be unified — like, she said, the borders between Mexico and the United States or Guatemala.

Ringwood’s Telschow now an Eagle Scout

Suburban Trends

*** begin quote ***

Ringwood resident Thomas J. Telschow, a member of Boy Scout Troop 76, attained the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Scouting, during a ceremony on Saturday, Aug. 11. A graduate of Lakeland Regional High School in Wanaque, he attends the St. Catherine of Bologna Church in Ringwood. He has also started his post-high school career at Manhattan College. For his Eagle Scout project, he spent about 160 hours building a memorial picnic area at Stonetown Field in memory of Bryan Ward and David Wright who both were known for pouring their energies into the borough’s recreational soccer programs.

JNEWS: Powers, Taylor [MC????] Colleen Queen 2012 and future Jasper


Setting a Positive Example As Colleen Queen 2012
Posted on 07 September 2012. 
by Antonina Zielinska

*** begin quote ***

Having attended the Irish Fair most years of her young life, Taylor Powers had great admiration for the Colleen Queens that reigned over the fair each year.

“I remember them walking around the fair with their sash, and I wanted to be like them,” she said.

Although it was her childhood aspiration, Powers did not put much thought into it as she prepared to attend Manhattan College, the Bronx. The fair committee tried to contact her with the news that she was chosen as the 2012 Colleen Queen, but she was in Puerto Rico at the time. She did not read the news in her e-mail until she returned home.

Serving as Colleen Queen will only be the newest way Powers serves the Irish Fair. She performed at the event nearly every year with the Buckley School of Irish Dance, where she was a student for 13 years.

*** and ***

Helping younger generations is part of a pattern Powers has demonstrated throughout her lifetime. As part of her Girl Scout volunteer work, she organized dances for children in Holy Name parish, Park Slope.

Though she likes to entertain children, safety always comes first. She has taught children to be junior lifeguards in Breezy Point.

Her school recognized her leadership and made her co-captain of the varsity swim team and captain of varsity cheerleading. However, getting her to speak about her accomplishments is not an easy task. She said she just follows her family’s example.

“I was raised to give back,” she said. “My mom always encouraged me to volunteer…I just want to give back to the community what was given to me.”

She said she brought the lessons she learned from her family and community to college with her as she studies civil engineering.

“St. Saviour is a very big part of my life,” she said. “I grew up there. I did everything there. My parents got married in the church, and my parents went (to the school) there.”

Being part of the St. Saviour community means more than school and volunteer work for Powers. She said it is also a religious experience. She said being part of the faith community and serving as an extraordinary minister of Holy Communion has helped her deepen her relationship with God.

*** end quote ***

Powers, Taylor [MC????]   

[JR: I’m sure she’s going to break a few hearts around Fanny Farmer. Makes me wish I was back in school. Nah, I couldn’t get in and why would they want a fat old white guy injineer hanging around? Impressive credentials she brings. I’d keep my eye on her; she’s a keeper. But you might need a club to to tie her down. LOL! I’m just a old fellow who needs slow moving targets and low thresholds.]

[JR: You can submit your news online to Jasper Jottings too. And, I know the Alumni Office “poaches”. LOL! If if they don’t like competition for your eyeball, it does keep them on their toes. Of email: jasper at reinke dot c(harlie) c(charlie). It’s a domain from the Cocos (Keeling) Islands. At one time, it was important to have my name. Do all fat old white guy injineer”s have big egos? And the “Reinke Pivot Irrigator” of Nebraska beat me to reinke dot com by a few hours. Another gold rush I missed. Argh!]

[JR: I don’t report sports in Jasper Jottings because Alma Mater did that pretty well in the past and is doing it well now. Now they “have an an app for that”. Many of the alums that read Jasper Jottings don’t care a wit about sports; some are rabid. Eiither way, Alma Mater is beginning to show signs of understanding the technology and how to use it. Five bucks ain’t going to break anybody. Sends a message “to do more”. Maybe I need Jasper Jottings app?]
