Philadelphia church official found guilty of sex-abuse coverup - Los Angeles Times

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Before the trial, archdiocese lawyers gave prosecutors a handwritten church memo that suggested Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua had ordered the list destroyed.Before the trial, a judge ordered Bevilacqua to submit to questioning at a closed-door hearing in November. Jurors did not see his seven hours of testimony.Lynn testified that only Bevilacqua, who died in January at 88, had the authority to remove pedophile priests."I did my best with what I could do," Lynn testified.Lynn said he tried to persuade some accused priests to leave their posts and undergo treatment. And he testified that medical experts had advised him not to contact alleged victims because they would be unwilling to discuss details of sexual abuse.While arguing Friday for bail for Lynn, defense attorney Jeffrey M. Lindy told Judge M. Teresa Sarmina: "You can't seriously think that Msgr. Lynn, after being investigated after 10 years, is going to flee," the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.Assistant Dist. Atty. Patrick Blessington countered by telling the judge: "This is a case that is going to call for a tough jail sentence."Blessington added: "Let's start today. Today, to jail. That's justice."

At Staten Island's Sandy Ground, 'railroad' claim on terra firma -

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Underground Railroad Agent." Evidence of underground railroad "rides" is invariably well-hidden. At Sandy Ground, records might have been lost in 1963, when much of the original community was destroyed by fire. Development, following the opening of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, took much of what remained. Back in the day, record-keeping would have been dangerous. "You have to remember," says Sylvia D'Alessandro, executive director of Sandy Ground, "the railroad was a covert operation and the penalties for involvement were harsh." Still, bits of information have surfaced. Ms. D'Alessandro recalled a visit last year from a staff member of the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom, a registry: "She said to me, 'Sylvia, you have all the dots, now all you have to do is connect them'." The new exhibit "Louis Napoleon: Underground Railroad Agent," represents a prominent "dot" and a strong connection, according to Ms. D'Alessandro. Napoleon, a well-documented figure, is known to have associated with prominent New York abolitionists, including Henry Ward Beecher. Last night's exhibit preview was restricted to donors and friends of the society. The show will open to the public tomorrow at the annual Sandy Ground Festival (1 to 6 p.m.), an afternoon party with live music, crafts, family activities and a legendary barbecue sauce made from a closely guarded family recipe.

Furman grad's coast-to-coast walk supports Wounded Warrior Project - Greenville News

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Ken Dwyer. An Army Special Forces officer who graduated from Furman in 1998, one year after McCandless, Dwyer was wounded in August 2006 in Afghanistan. A rocket-propelled grenade destroyed his left hand and left eye. McCandless called his old fraternity brother last spring, in search of some tips on training for a 3,800-mile walk. “He would know what I needed to do to walk 20 miles a day,” McCandless says. When Dwyer — now back on active duty, stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C. — explained how the Wounded Warrior Project had helped him to recover, McCandless had the charity in mind that he figured would make the hike worthwhile. (Page 2 of 2) McCandless hopes his walk will raise $25,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit endeavor that helps injured soldiers and caregivers by providing peer mentoring, employment assistance, stress recovery workshops, and caregiver retreats. The mission has given McCandless motivation at lonely times in his long, quiet trek. He wore out three pairs of shoes, and lost 30 pounds, in that first half of the journey. “Blisters were a big problem in the first couple of weeks. I was told I’d just have to suffer through that,” says McCandless, who has trained for the trip by walking at least 10 miles a day. McCandless’ path took him through rugged terrain in Eastern Kentucky and West Virginia, where he saw plenty of deer, otters, groundhogs and snakes. In Kentucky, he had a companion for most of a day — a stray dog. But other than stops to visit friends and relatives in Cincinnati and Chicago, the trip was a solitary venture spiced with occasional conversations with strangers. “You definitely get to talking to yourself. I did a lot of singing,” says McCandless, who during one sunrise-to-sunset walk in West Virginia spotted only three people the entire day. Most of his encounters with people bring curious looks, in part because of a heavier beard and an extremely...

Local business owner finds success on the Internet -

Sun, Mar 25, 2012
Woodstock, with custom artwork and our most-requested phrase, “Listen to the wind and know I am near.” Our personalized chimes are engraved by an engraver in Troy. Also popular are Tree Huggers stainless steel custom-engraved tree dedication plaques, supplied by a Michigan company. Q: Is there seasonality to your business? A: No, not really, but Mother's Day remembrance, and the holiday time period are especially busy times for us. Q: Do you use social media? A: Yes - Linked In, Facebook, YouTube, newsletters, and a blog for networking, and for staying connected with our customers and colleagues. It's not self-serving, these tools really do allow your customers and colleagues to join the conversation. Q: How do you promote Big Hug? A: We have been fortunate that our local, and even national news media seem to like what we are doing. We have a partnership with, the nation's largest repository of online obituaries, and we have worked with, a similar company. We use our social media tools, and occasionally invest in online paid search campaigns. Our Google “local places” listing also directs a surprising amount of traffic to our site. We also have an Affiliate management company in place that makes it possible for us to help schools, non-profit and civic organizations with fund-raising efforts. Q: What are some of your most interesting projects? A: I like my job because every day brings new challenges, but I especially liked being called back to my junior high school in Ann Arbor (where I had not been for almost 40 years!) and assisting them with a memorial garden.

Let's once again salute passing heroes of WWII for what they did for us - News Sentinel

Sun, Mar 25, 2012
Murrow became a tremendously respected friend whom we listened to every evening. We felt safe here in our Indiana city, but we ached for people abroad whose homes and places of worship were being destroyed. And in the mind always there was fear when seeing a Western Union messenger on his bike. “Is he coming here? Please don't come here.” These men whose deaths we are now reading about came home and made new lives and took their citizenship and other obligations seriously and life went on. They were heroes, real-for-sure heroes, who gave up their comfortable lives at home — and here we are, living in the land of the free — and definitely the home of the brave. Let's salute them once again and remember what they did for us. Betty E. Stein is a retired teacher.

Feb. 28 Open Line - Jacksonville Journal Courier

Wed, Feb 29, 2012
Christians in North Africa and the Middle East have been killed by Muslims and scores of churches there burned, do you know why we are obsessing over a Quran that was accidentally destroyed in Afghanistan? No one here knows, either. Those of you who are criticizing President Obama for the skyrocketing gas prices don’t seem to realize that even if we had drilled in 2009 it would have taken until 2013 for the gasoline to be produced from that drilling. Don’t you realize that it takes time?At least the big Q is still spending millions of dollars on new roads, this way we will have a nice ride when we leave this state.Why do the negative Virginia school commentors raise the price of the building every day, often in the same Open Line section? Inflation, infatuation, or ignorance?Nothing but pure, hateful, bigotry and ignorance has been posted on the Open Line toward alcoholics and others with addictions. This society’s view on alcoholism or other addictions hasn’t changed one bit since the book Alcoholics Anonymous was written and first put into print. Very unfortunate and sad that so many remain and choose to be ignorant of a disease that does not discriminate.And I think there should be sterilization of all women on welfare. Quote: “I am a Catholic woman who has been following the debate on women’s health care by the three Republican candidates for president. I think that there should be a national referendum to neuter and sterilize anyone running for the Republican nomination ... “Midland Farm & Home, 1203 W. Morton Ave., Jacksonville. Score: 97. Violations: 3 points — Need to clean and sanitize both restrooms. Really? Farm and Home prepares food in the bathrooms? What next? Port-A-Pottie inspections?If you want to listen to the music in your vehicle, that’s fine. But when you are pumping gas ...

Obama's assault on freedom of religion targets Catholics - Tulsa Beacon

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
Catholics ignore that doctrine.As a side note, most Bible-believing Christians that I know are not opposed to contraceptives except those that destroy a fertilized egg (a living baby).But Obama want to force the Catholic Church to abandon its long-held doctrine and to have its insurance cover birth control with no co-pay for employees.This will have an impact in Tulsa, especially with Saint John Medical Center and Saint Francis Hospital plus various Catholic schools.Elections have consequences.Obama lost every county in Oklahoma in 2008 but unless Obamacare is overturned by the courts (and it might be), the only recourse to restoring constitutional values is electing a new president and for the Republicans to control bot...

Dmitri Nabokov, Steward of His Father’s Literary Legacy, Dies at 77

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
Lolita” and the unfinished novel “The Original of Laura.” He translated his father’s early Russian works, including the novel “The Gift” and the short story collection “Tyrants Destroyed.” He also wrote a memoir, “On Revisiting Father’s Room,” which explored their relationship as well as his father’s life and work. Mr. Nabokov also countered the widely held perception of his father as cool and distant, describing a “trusting, gentle nature.” “If there is a quality overlooked in his writing by some of the more obtuse commentators,” he wrote, “it is that gentleness, coupled with a total honesty on every plane and an utter freedom from anything cruel, cheap or mean.” In his book, Mr. Nabokov described an unpublished manuscript that he said “would have been Father’s most brilliant novel, the most concentrated distillation of his creativity, but whose release in incomplete form he expressly forbade.” Vladimir Nabokov’s widow and Dmitri’s mother, Véra, never burned the handwritten notecards that made up the novel, and in 2009 the younger Mr. Nabokov published it. The volume included a text of the book, in the order that the younger Mr. Nabokov beli... (New York Times)

From slave to business owner: William Quincy Atwood - Ledger Independent

Wed, Feb 22, 2012
Louisville, who wrote a book about successful black men in 1887. (Simmons did not state where he found his information.) In 1883, when William Atwood was 44 years old he said, "Education will destroy this enemy (prejudice). We should sacrifice all things but honor, to educate our children ... we must cultivate a greater love for the higher education ... as you train the physical nature he becomes active, strong and enduring. By cultivating the mind he grows higher and greater, more dignified and respected. By the cultivation of the moral man, he grows better, more noble and beloved." Everything began to change in 1851 when his father died. William was 12 years old at that time.  His father, Henry Atwood left a will providing for his nine children and their three mothers, as well as seven others in his household. His will stipulated that his plantations be sold and the group taken to a free state. Once free, each child would inherit $8,000 and $2,000 would go to each of the three mothers of...

Bruce Herman, Worker Training Expert, Dies at 54

Fri, Feb 17, 2012
Christine Owens, executive director of the National Employment Law Project. “He doubled down on it and was committed to rebuilding a vibrant manufacturing sector.” After the World Trade Center was destroyed, in 2001, he devoted himself to helping the families of the 79 workers at Windows on the World, the restaurant atop one of the towers, who were killed, and to finding jobs for the 350 Windows workers who survived. As a top official of the Center for Workforce and Economic Development, a New York nonprofit group, he arranged the first grant to underwrite the Restaurant Opportunities Center, which helped unemployed restaurant workers find jobs after the Sept. 11 attack. He later lined up more than $500,000 in investment for Colors, an unusual cooperatively owned restaurant in Greenwich Village founded by former Windows on the World workers. Bruce Gregory Herman was born on March 23, 1957, in Lancaster, Pa., the son of Samuel and Arlene Herman. After graduating from Penn Manor High School, in Millersville, Pa., he attended Dickinson College, where he received a bachelor’s degree in political science. He obtained a master’s degree in political science at Columbia University. He married Jennifer Kleinberg in 1998, and is survived by her; their three sons, Luke, Taylor and Carter; his parents; two br... (New York Times)
