Mainers should develop a strategy to capitalize on our assets and determine how they can be used to stimulate the state’s economy and generate good-paying jobs. I believe nuclear energy can be an important part of that strategy.

John Tuohy Jr. earned a bachelor’s of science degree in mechanical engineering at Manhattan College in New York and a master’s in nuclear engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He also is a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He lives in Bridgton.

JNEWS: Leary, Tim [MC1967] St. Francis Prep boys’ basketball coach retires



Lasting legacy for Leary: Prep coach honored at last home game
By Laura Amato

*** begin quote ***

Tim Leary didn’t always want to be a teacher. He never really planned on being a coach either. More than 40 years after he became both, Leary can’t quite imagine anything else.

The longtime St. Francis Prep boys’ basketball coach, retiring after 43 years on the sidelines, was honored at the Terriers’ final home game of the season Sunday afternoon as former players and students packed the gym to celebrate his unexpected and incredibly successful career.

“I was going to be a cop like everybody else in my family. I had taken the test and I was waiting to get on the job out of school,” Leary said. “I just got married out of college and I needed a job, so while I was waiting I took to teaching. And I was like ‘this is great.’ I’ll be on the beach during the summer and I never really looked back after that.”

Leary – a 1963 Prep grad – was a star on the hardwood before he started pacing the sidelines. He played both basketball and baseball for the Terriers and went on to compete at Manhattan College, leading the Jaspers to two NIT appearances.

Had 10 priests celebrating Funeral Mass for a 1/2 full 1200 capacity, La Purisima church. Family is big in size and numbers. Fond memories from oldest daughter’s eulogy with “current events” by hospital chaplain’s homily.
Rosary @ packed wake was led by our 90 yr retired Marine Deacon. About a dozen attendees offered eulogies of family, church, work, hospital, Charity & military experiences with Charlie.
It was a full life

JNEWS: McCourt, Joe [MC1967] May 30 Memorial Day Parade Grand Marshall



Vietnam Veteran Joe McCourt Named Grand Marshal of Fanwood-Scotch Plains Memorial Day Parade
March 29, 2016 at 5:00 PM

*** begin quote ***

SCOTCH PLAINS-FANWOOD, NJ – On May 30, neighbors of both Fanwood and Scotch Plains will line the streets for the beloved Memorial Day Parade, where the honorary duties of grand marshal will be handled by Vietnam veteran Joe McCourt.

Despite being a member of the parade committee since 1992, McCourt had never assumed the role of grand marshal until now.

“We had a meeting and I stepped out to the men’s room and when I came back I was the grand marshal,” McCourt said jokingly. “Back in October, Mayor Glover asked if I had ever been the grand marshal and I said no, and then they voted and here I am. Quite an honor, quite a thrill, that’s for sure.”

A Brooklyn native, McCourt enlisted in the Army after graduating from Manhattan College in 1967. After attending Basic Training and Advanced Training at Fort Dix in New Jersey, he traveled south to Officer Candidate School at Fort Benning in Georgia.
