Franciscan Fr. Humbert Moster, OFM, was a people person: warm, plain-spoken, down-to-earth. Those qualities made him a popular pastor, chaplain and missionary for 60 years. Fr. Moster died unexpectedly June 1st at University Hospital in Cincinnati following a fall he suffered at Holy Family Friary in Oldenburg, Indiana. He was 90 years old.Fr. Moster served as a pastor or associate in Cincinnati, Ohio, Lafayette, Indiana, Southfield, Michigan, Bloomington, Illinois, and Hamilton, Ohio, but his heart belonged to Oldenburg, where he was born Oct. 21, 1929. He and his twin Walter were among 11 children of John and Emma (Obermeyer) Moster. Influenced by the friars and Franciscan Sisters, he entered St. Francis Seminary in Cincinnati in 1944, was received as a novice by the Province of St. John the Baptist in 1948, and professed first vows as a friar in 1949. He professed solemn vows in 1952 while studying Philosophy at Duns Scotus College in Southfield, Michigan. After Theology studies in Oldenburg he was ordained a priest June 11, 1957.Apart from assignments as a hospital chaplain in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Louisville, Kentucky, Fr. Moster was a parish man. He returned to Oldenburg in 1993 as Associate Pastor of Holy Family Church and became a parochial “sub” for the Batesville Indiana Deanery, eventually serving as Parochial Administrator and then Pastor at St. Mary of the Rock and St. Cecilia parishes, adding St. Peter Parish in Franklin County Indiana to his care in 1996. A skilled carpenter, “He remodeled, rebuilt, restored,” wherever he lived, says friar Dan Anderson.Fr. Moster made a leap of faith in 2000, joining the friars’ new mission in Savanna-la-Mar, Jamaica. Back in the U.S. in 2003, he served briefly in Jackson, Kentucky, then returned to provide sacramental ministry in Oldenburg. He moved to Cincinnati in 2006 but on weekends drove to the small parishes he served in Indiana. He finally retired in 2015, first to St. Anthony Friary in Mt. Airy, then to Holy Family Friary in his beloved Oldenburg.Preceded in death by his parents and most of his siblings, Fr. Moster is survived by brothers Bernard (Mary Ann), Leo (Joanne) and Anthony (Patricia), and by his sister Beata Moloney and sister-in-law Kathleen Moster, as well as 45 nieces and nephews, many great nieces and nephews and his friar classmate, Fr. Bert Heise, OFM.Fr. Moster’s body will be received at 9 a.m. Friday, June 5, at Holy Family Church in Oldenburg, Ind., with visitation until the Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. Burial will follow immediately at Holy Family Cemetery. Memorials may be made in care of FriarWorks, 1615 Vine St., Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. For online condolences go to www.weigelfh.com.
(Tallahassee, FL) — Florida residents could be among the first to receive a coronavirus vaccine. Florida is one of four states that will be part of a CDC vaccine pilot program, but there’s no word on when the program will start.State Surgeon General Scott Rivkees announced yesterday that Florida is one of four states that will be part of a CDC vaccine pilot program.Rivkees says California, which is the only state with more COVID-19 cases than Florida, will also be part of the study.Florida, once again, has a new record for COVID-19 deaths. The Department of Health yesterday announced a new single-day high of 276 deaths.The state also recorded over 5800 new cases, and the positivity rate was just over 10%. Florida has reported less than 10-thousand daily cases for the last 17 days.But the United States is behind Russia which is defending its new coronavirus vaccine after President Vladimir Putin said Russia was the first country in the world to grant regulatory approval to a coronavirus vaccine, after less than two months of human testing.
Can you contract the coronavirus again if you’ve already had it? Apparently, reinfection is possible and in some cases patients who initially survived COVID-19 die from the second infection, according to some health officials.The coronavirus may be “reactivating” in people who have been cured of the illness, according to Korea’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.About 51 patients classed as having been cured in South Korea have tested positive again, the CDC said in a briefing on Monday. Rather than being infected again, the virus may have been reactivated in these people, given they tested positive again shortly after being released from quarantine, according to the director-general of the Korean CDC.“While we are putting more weight on reactivation as the possible cause, we are conducting a comprehensive study on this,” Jeong said. “There have been many cases when a patient during treatment will test negative one day and positive another.”A patient is deemed fully recovered when two tests conducted with a 24-hour interval show negative results.South Korea was one of the earliest countries to see a large-scale coronavirus outbreak, but the country has seen just 200 deaths and a falling new case tally since peaking at 1,189 on Feb. 29. One of the world’s most expansive testing programs and a tech-driven approach to tracing infections has seen Korea contain its epidemic without lockdowns or shuttering businesses.Fear of re-infection in recovered patients is also growing in China, where the virus first emerged last December, after reports that some tested positive again, and even died from the disease, after supposedly recovering and leaving hospital. There’s little understanding of why this happens, although some believe that the problem may lie in inconsistencies in test results.As of Wednesday, South Korea had 10,384 virus cases, with 6,776 released from hospital, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University and Bloomberg News.Epidemiologists around the world are in a race to find out more about the virus that causes Covid-19. The pathogen’s rapid global spread has recently seen the focus shift to patients who contract the virus but display few or atypical symptoms. Korea has been at the forefront of tracking these cases, which are causing particular concern in China, where the epidemic is showing signs of coming under control.UP NEXT
Since starting the blog two months ago, the partners have published six posts, which is essentially outlining a detailed approach to founding one’s own brewery, including “Building a Business Plan,” “Designing a Brew System” and, of course, “Finding the Right Location.”Ideally, Grundmann and Betros have their hearts set on finding a site along Bay Avenue with the real Twin Lights perched above. But locating a building with the right height clearance to accommodate their equipment and at the right price point is easier said than done.“The search is a process and we’ve already seen several locations but nothing that we thought was a perfect fit,” Grundmann said. “If we have to expand our search to Middletown and Atlantic Highlands we can but the idea is to be as close to the Twin Lights as possible. This won’t work as well if we’re not. In our hearts and minds, Highlands is the place.”This article was first published in the June 14-June 21, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times. A former financial advisor with International Planning Alliance in Shrewsbury, Grundmann said the most important hurdle to clear is acquiring the capital to make this vision a reality. But he is confident his background and relationships in the finance industry will help move the project forward.In the meantime Grundmann, along with Mike Betros, president and director of brewing operations, will continue to grow the Twin Lights Brewing brand by focusing on what sets their operation apart from the rest. “Part of building an audience is communication and sharing your story and message with people,” Grundmann said. “The craft beer craze is as much about the beer as it is connecting with people and making them feel as if they’re part of something. That’s why we fell in love with it. And it’s how we want to operate.” “The generic answer is that we make great beer. But so does everyone else,” Grundmann said. “What makes us different is the sense of inclusivity around us. We want to let people in on our process and let them grow with us.”Grundmann and Betros grew up together in the Leonardo section of Middletown, developing a bond at Bayshore Middle School that strengthened over the years.The pair officially went into business in 2016 when they trademarked Twin Lights Brewing and created a limited liability company, putting their plan for a brewing location and tap room in motion.Since launching the brand, Grumann and Betros have placed a premium on community engagement and, though they are not yet licensed to serve and distribute their product, they have pledged to pull back the curtain on their step-by-step process, offering supporters total transparency through the Twin Lights Brewing Blog. By Chris Rotolo |HIGHLANDS – An up-and-coming craft brewing team is in search of a home in Highlands.Twin Lights Brewing, which takes its name from the storied lighthouse over-looking the borough and Sandy Hook, is in the early stage of locating a brick-and-mortar location for its craft beer imprint.Co-founder and CEO Will Grundmann, 27, hopes to have that site secured and fully operational by next summer.“I think the most realistic and reasonable timeline is summer 2019,” Grundmann said. “I don’t think that’s too ambitious. I think we’ll be brewing beer at our location by then.”

Craddock urges Wolves to keep Arsenal target Bolyby Paul Vegas11 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Wolves skipper Jody Craddock is a fan of Willy Boly.Arsenal have been linked with Boly, who Wolves signed for £10m from Porto in the summer of 2018.“We definitely want him to stay at Wolves as he’s been doing so well, but he probably could walk into another team higher up the table,” Craddock told the Express & Star.“Hopefully, he doesn’t. But when you’ve got these players and they’re playing well, there’s always going to be clubs sniffing around them.”Then, it’s down to Wolves to do the job and keep hold of him if we want to step up to the table ourselves.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Story Highlights The country has been designated the sub-regional hub for relief operations in the event of disasters. The designation of Jamaica as the sub-regional hub was made by head of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. This move will allow for fast and effective delivery of assistance in disaster situations. As Jamaica prepares to position itself as the fourth node in the global logistics chain, the country has been designated the sub-regional hub for relief operations in the event of disasters.Making the announcement, Minister of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Anthony Hylton, said this move will allow for greater efficiency and management of regional and international humanitarian supplies and for fast and effective delivery of assistance in disaster situations.“This designation will mean a strengthening of the logistics link between Jamaica and Panama, which has been designated the Regional Logistics Centre for Humanitarian Assistance for the Americas in the provision of post disaster humanitarian relief,” he said.The Minister was speaking on Wednesday, November 13, at the TechConnect 2013 conference and exposition at the Shipping Association of Jamaica (SAJ) headquarters in Kingston.He noted that the designation of Jamaica as the sub-regional hub, was made by head of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Baroness Amos, and is in keeping with efforts to enhance regional co-operation in disaster preparedness and humanitarian response.“Relief operations….that’s a major logistics exercise and it means therefore that…they see the build out of Jamaica’s existing facility, the promise of the logistics hub as a major part of, and a major reason for making Jamaica the sub-regional operations centre,” he said.The Minister contented that in the future, it is likely that Jamaica’s global logistics hub operation will be seen “as a sort of magnet for multinational corporations whose products and services are directly or indirectly involved in the logistics associated with disaster management and disaster relief”.“This is a major feather in Jamaica’s cap and strengthens our resolve in expediting the establishment of Jamaica’s global logistics hub. More importantly, it sends a clear signal that the global community understands the geo-strategic importance of Jamaica to global logistics,” he said.The Government’s Logistics Hub Initiative aims to take advantage of the anticipated increase in maritime activities from the expansion of the Panama Canal, scheduled for completion by 2016.Jamaica is deemed ideally positioned for this undertaking, based on the country’s location, midway between North and South America, and in close proximity to the canal.Forming part of the Government’s strategic priorities for 2013/14, in the area of job creation and economic growth, the initiative will see Jamaica becoming the fourth node in the global logistics chain, along with facilities at Rotterdam, Netherlands; Singapore; and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.Key elements of the initiative include: development of the Caymanas Economic Zone; dredging of the Kingston Harbour; establishing a Dry Dock facility at Jackson Bay, Clarendon and a trans-shipment commodity port facility near Yallahs, St. Thomas; and developing an air cargo and passenger facility at Vernamfield in Clarendon.The conference and expo formed part of activities for the first annual TechConnect Week, organised by Advantum, from November 13 to 15.The week, themed: ‘Securing the Logistics Chain: People, Equipment, Technology’, will feature presentations and discussions about securing the key aspects of the logistics chain whilst highlighting the need to view security from a holistic perspective.Formerly Port Computer Services, Advantum is a subsidiary of the SAJ, which provides technological infrastructure and systems support to the Caribbean maritime sector.
