LONG ISLANDLI LIFE

Christine O’Hagan of Holtsville recalls her courtship with her husband, Patrick.

I met my husband, Patrick, on Oct. 14, 1966, at a Manhattan College dance, or “mixer,” as it was called. The all-male school was in Riverdale in the Bronx. Patrick lived in the Bronx. I lived in Jackson Heights, Queens. My name was Christine Kehl then. It was a long subway ride to Riverdale, but my friend Kathleen came with me. We’d heard that Manhattan was full of cute guys.

Patrick was 19, a Manhattan College sophomore, an electrical engineering major. I was 16, in my senior year at Cathedral High School in Manhattan. Patrick says he was about to leave when he spotted me. All I know is that our eyes met across a crowded dance floor. It was either love at first sight — or that we were the tallest people in the room.

After we danced, he asked for my number. When he called and asked if I were home, my 9-year-old brother said “no” and hung up.

But Patrick persisted, and our first and second dates were at the movies. For our third date, he invited me to the Manhattan College Engineers’ Ball at the midtown Commodore Hotel. It was a rainy night and my newly dyed heels, which I dyed myself, streaked his suit pants with silver dye.

We spent our rather penniless courtship either at the movies or walking the streets of New York. Occasionally, we splurged on a $1.99 steak dinner at Tad’s Steaks in Times Square. In 1967, we went to my senior prom. After graduating, I worked as an operator at the New York Telephone Co. in Manhattan.

Patrick graduated in 1969 and on June 20, 1970, we were married at St. Joan of Arc Church in Jackson Heights. We honeymooned on Cape Cod, where, somewhere in the surf, Patrick lost the Manhattan class ring I’d given him as an engagement gift.

50 years of officiating and marriage has kept Dr. Vince Maligno in the game

Brooklyn-raised Dr. Vince Maligno never stepped foot on Staten Island until 1981, but it was through sports, he believes, that he was instantly welcomed.

But the 72-year-old Dr. Maligno hardly ever played any sports. Rather he constantly officiated games in a variety of sports and leagues, and this year he will be celebrating 50 years of officiating.

“Sports got me acclimated into the community,” said Dr. Maligno. “Without even playing sports I was involved. Especially in Staten Island, the high school leagues, softball leagues, the Little Leagues. I worked every Little League and kept myself involved not only because I enjoyed it, but it was also a source of income.”

*** and ***

Dr. Maligno continued to umpire both baseball and softball in 1968 and 1969, but after graduating from Manhattan College, he became a second lieutenant in the Air Force. But his officiating career was basically just beginning as well.

McGoey Tom (MC1969) shares Professor Schweitzer letter

To the Editors:

In his review of Rosemary Ashton’s One Hot Summer [NYR, December 21, 2017], Tim Flannery errs in crediting Benjamin Disraeli with enactment of Jewish emancipation in 1858, a bit of myth-making that most of Disraeli’s many biographers indulge in and that he himself practiced wholesale. Disraeli entered Parliament in 1837, and one of his first votes was cast against Jewish emancipation. He really supported emancipation only once, in a famous speech in the 1847 debate that cost him politically; on the many occasions when a bill came before Parliament between 1837 and 1858, he did not speak at all or spoke against it, and sometimes voted for, sometimes against it. The public Disraeli differed from the private one, as he had to because his political standing, still perilous in 1858, would have been jeopardized by identifying himself with Jewish causes. In 1858 he did not participate in the debate, but played his part behind the scenes in the protracted maneuvers that went on for several months.

Cooney, Robert M. (MC1969) commented on JEMAIL: Abate, Bob (MC1981) shares
about Pannell, Tyrone[MC1964 RIP]
    
I ran track at the Prep when Ty was at the College. I saw him win the IC4A hurdles at MSG in a tremendous diving finish and then run up to Coach Eastman who was in the stands and hug him. Eastman was crippled by a back problem and the scene was touching. Ty had a car and gave me a lift to practice once which was a real thrill. He was a class act and his death was a shock.

JNEWS: O’Hagan, Patrick [MC1969] gets his ring back

Class ring lost on honeymoon surfaces on beach 47 years later

2017 08Aug 27 ring

*** begin quote ***

A Manhattan College grad lost his class ring while splashing around with his newlywed bride on Cape Cod nearly half a century ago — but miraculously got it back this week thanks to a beach scavenger with a metal detector.

“It’s really incredible luck; one coincidence after another,” Patrick O’Hagan, 70, of Holtsville, told The Post.
O’Hagan and his wife, Christine, were celebrating their honeymoon on the beach 47 years ago, when his ring fell off and sunk into the sea, he said.

“I lost my balance and I could feel it slip off my hand into three or four feet of water,” he said.
The couple spent hours looking for the jewelry — a $100 gift Christine bought for Patrick in 1969 — but eventually were forced to give up, he said.

*** and ***

He googled the name found “The Book of Kehls,” a 2005 memoir by Christine about the tragic death of her son.

“It was chapter nine, and it began: ‘I fell in love with Patrick O’Hagan,’” Wirth told the station. “So I knew that I had the exact person I needed to track down.”

*** and ***

The aging lovebirds celebrated their 47th wedding anniversary in June.

“This all brought back a lot of memories,” Patrick said.

He added, “It’s an amazing story. If you put it in a book, nobody would believe it was true.”

The Book of Kehls Paperback – February 7, 2006
by Christine Kehl O’Hagan (Author)

When Bridget Moore left Ireland in 1865, she never suspected that along with her trunk and rosary beads, she was bringing Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy to New York City. It wasn’t until Bridget was a grandmother, one who had buried four of her grandsons, that she realized she’d brought MD to the States, a disease that would haunt her family for generations. Years later, her great-grandchildren grew up under the elevated trains of Jackson Heights, Queens―and one of them was Christine Kehl O’Hagan, the author of this moving and insightful memoir.

Christine, her sister Pam, and their brother Richie played in the streets and attended mass every Sunday. But Richie had trouble walking. By the time he was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, Christine learned that two of her mother’s brothers―uncles she’d never known about―had died of MD. Christine eventually married and had a healthy son. But one day she saw her second boy, Jamie, struggle to climb onto the school bus―and she knew knew then and there that this disease would be with her the rest of her life.

Extraordinarily written, with much honesty and humor, The Book of Kehls is the engaging story of a family that has known love, courage, and heartbreak in equal measure―and survived.
