Peter Gallaher · 5 hrs · LifeNews · There is clueless. There is dumb. There is stupid. There is hopeless. There is brain dead. In one way or another all of them apply here. And, folks, they vote! One guss at to for whom they will vote.

Gallaher, Peter “peardarban” (MC1965) 

[JR: This was just too funny not to share. Found and cited on FACEBOOK by a fellow Jasper. Have to be political in the “news”, but it is funny. And, you can sense how exasperated he is with the story. Reminded me of the Brothers I had when someone in the class said something stupid!]

JEMAIL: Rooney, John Peter (MC1965) suggest appealing to the Pope


6 JULY 2016

Bishop Robert Lynch of St. Petersburg, Florida. 

I’m sorry Brian, but writing Bishop Robert Lynch is NOT worth your time.

In his book, “The Faithful Departed”, (Encounter Books, NY, 2008), the author, Philip F. Lawler, notes on page 238, that Bishop Robert Lynch “…made a $100,000 severance payment to William Urbanski who left his job as spokesman for the diocese protesting that the bishop has sexually harassed him.  The bishop denied the charges and insisted the severance was not ‘hush money’.  But reporters investigating the case found that Lynch had showered Urbanski with personal gifts for 5 years….”

The good Bishop is suspect.  Do you think he will even read your letters? Why does Bishop Lynch want us to apologize to homosexuals? You fill in the blanks.

In any event, Bishop Robert Lynch has reached the mandatory age of retirement, 75 years, so the best way to deal with this man is to write the Pope and ask His Holiness to accept Lynch’s retirement. 

It is easy to write the Pope:

His Holiness, Pope Francis 
Apostolic Palace 00120
Vatican City, Italy.

A single sheet of paper in one envelope will cost you $1.15 postage at the USPS Post Office in your city.  Ask for the international stamp, a nice circular postage stamp depicting the moon.

Do it now.

JNEWS: Wanielista, Marty [MC1965] — a jasper connection to a weight guesser



The Weight Guesser and the deep history of Rocky Glen
Published: April 10, 2016

*** begin quote ***

A lot of local Baby Boomers have such fond memories of Rocky Glen, the legendary amusement park near Moosic, they feel as if they grew up there.

Marty Wanielista did.

Wanielista, 74, today a retired University of Central Florida engineering professor, was just 8 years old when he went to work at his father’s Rocky Glen concessions. His father, Martin, and his brothers and family ran games of chance, a dart game and a shooting gallery and young Marty worked them all.

*** and ***

Martin’s son, Marty, graduated from Avoca High School in 1959. His parents encouraged him to go to Scranton University where he joined ROTC. He served two years in Army Medical Service Corps, setting up waste disposal and drinking water systems for camps.

He got a master’s degree from Manhattan College and doctorate from Cornell in environmental systems.

A stormwater expert, he headed a research group at UCF that was the first to identify storm water as a pollutant. They developed a system that utilizes used tires to filter stormwater. Though retired as a full time professor, he still works as a researcher and has new patents for methods for the removal of nutrients and the reuse of stormwater.

Marty has been married 50 years to Betty Kusimerz from Dupont. They have two daughters, Marla and Victoria, an engineer and a teacher and two grandchildren.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Mary Catherine


Good Afternoon All,

John Reinke has shared a prayer request from Fellow Jasper, Peter Gallaher ’65 BA. Peter’s message follows.

*** begin quote ***

Peter Gallaher

The past two days have not been the best two days in my life. But, that’s a two six pack story. Never mind.
Anyway, of your kindness, please remember in your prayers our granddaughter Mary Catherine. She broke her ankle several weeks ago, rather severely, and has not been doing well. She is in the hospital, now, with something my daughter, her mother, says is DVT, a blood clot.

Spare a prayer for me, too. I don’t have the legs I used to have for this kind of exercise.

*** end quote ***

Please keep Mary Catherine in your prayers as we pray for complete recovery from her injury, that the MDs are able to dissolve the blood clot and as they rebuild her ankle that her healing is total, free of complications. Please keep her Parents and Grandparents in 
your prayers as well. Thank you. God Bless,

Phil Colon
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)
