Late UMD director was campus institution
Longtime auxiliary services director Joseph Michela died suddenly Saturday.
By: Lisa Baumann, Duluth News Tribune
This undated but older photo of Joe Michela in his office at UMD shows how, as a joke, he’d sometimes put an extra pair of shoes under his desk.
Duluth resident Joseph Michela was supposed to be a dentist.
Fortunately for the University of Minnesota Duluth, Michela, who died Saturday morning at age 60 of a heart attack, instead became an “institution” there as the director of auxiliary services.
“His entire work life and commitment was tied to UMD,” said Greg Fox, UMD’s vice chancellor of finance and operations. “I don’t know if there is anybody in the last 45 years that is more identified with the campus than Joe.”
Although he earned a Bachelor of Science degree from UMD to pursue dentistry, Michela only did that to please his father, said his wife, Vicky.
After graduating in 1973, Michela became the custodial supervisor in the university’s housing department. He became director of housing in 1976 and married Vicky, whom he had met at UMD.
In 1983, he became the first and only director of auxiliary services. At the time of his death, Michela had his hands in “anything that made money at UMD,” as Vicky described it Monday.
Michela was responsible for about 150 staff members and nearly 500 student employees in housing, food and vending, the bookstore and other stores, print services, parking, trademark licensing, the U Card Office and UPass bus program.
“He came here in the fall of ’68 and never left, like me,” said colleague John Brostrom, senior administrative director in the department of auxiliary services at UMD. The two met during Michela’s freshman year when Brostrom was his resident assistant.
“He was just a real leader who will be very, very difficult to replace,” Brostrom said. “The position grew all around him.”
“No one person is capable of doing what Joe was able to do,” Fox said.
Michela guided the expansion of on-campus student housing, renovation of the food court, addition of a child-care center and much, much more, said Susan Beasy Latto, director of media and public relations at the college.
One of the projects he was most proud of was Kirby Plaza, including the Duluth Transit Authority hub for bus service.
“The bus hub was his idea,” Vicky said. “I think some places are trying to copy that model. He had a lot of vision.”
Vicky also said Michela designed the school’s food court with an architect. Thanks to Michela, UMD’s food service program is the only one in the U of M system run by the school and not an outside entity.
“UMD doesn’t employ outsiders like Barnes and Noble to run the bookstore and it’s the same for the food,” she said. “I don’t think people of Duluth understand how hard he fought to have local people do all the work on campus and he was very proud of that.”
Although he sometimes projected a gruff exterior and had opinions he wasn’t afraid to share, according to family members, he always looked out for everyone.
“He had a sense of what was right and went that way no matter what,” Vicky said.
He also was described as a big teddy bear who had a soft spot for puppies and babies.
“The child-care center was about 150 feet from Joe’s office,” Fox said. “They’d stop in and see Joe and they’d laugh and talk with him and he just loved being with those kids.”
Fox said as much as Michela loved UMD and his job, there was never any question that his first priority was his family.
“He loved his kids, he loved his wife and he had an active social life, and it revolved completely around his family,” he said.
Michela coached his three sons in baseball and was instrumental in revamping the Eastern Little League field. Additionally, he had been president of the Duluth Amateur Hockey Association.
Helping people was a daily occurrence for him as well, whether it was giving people a ride to work in a snowstorm or essentially “adopting” an elderly neighbor who had no family.
“He had an enormous heart and if someone was in pain he would be the first one there to offer assistance,” Fox said.
When Michela’s father died, he even donated his wheelchair to a disabled student who did not have one.
Family members said he seemed to run into someone he knew wherever they went in Duluth.
Vicky said former UMD students would approach Michela and many told him he was the one who got them through school.
“He was genuinely friends with people of all ages,” said his son, Ryan.
He loved to talk and at work he usually had everyone laughing, said Kristina Kershaw, Michela’s daughter.
For the past six years, Kershaw has worked for her father indirectly as the operations manager of the college coffee shop.
“We were all accountable,” she said. “But he was so funny — he told jokes all the time.”
Fox said Michela’s death was a shock to people on campus Monday.
“One of the things he has left campus with is a group of talented people he helped hire,” he said. “They will work hard to do the job the best way possible because they know Joe would expect that from them.”
He said it was too early to say whether the university would honor Michela’s memory in a formal manner.
“Things should be done to remember Joe, whether it’s scholarships or something else,” he said.
Although Michela’s death came as a surprise, he was a big guy who didn’t believe in going to doctors, Vicky said.
“We asked him to go but he didn’t,” she said. “He was too busy taking care of everyone else.”
Bus Driver Charged With Sexually Assaulting Student
By Steven Tanner on January 14, 2010 1:26 PM
It seems as though Jewel's Bus Company, which operates in Roseland, needs to update its hiring policies. Less than four months after a Jewel's bus driver kidnapped a kindergartener (Tribune) from the South Side, another Jewel's driver was arrested and charged with sexually abusing a teenage girl (Fox Chicago).
Even more disturbing is the fact that the 17-year-old girl is mentally challenged, likely considered an easy target for accused offender Antonio Ross.
Ross allegedly fondled the girl's breasts and initiatiated other, more-explicit sexual contact, on March 24, 2009 and was charged with criminal sexual assault of a victim who was between the ages of 13 and 17. Ross was 26 years old at the time of the incident.
Apparently this was not the first time he allegedly assaulted the girl. He was arrested and charged with felony intimidation and felony communication with a witness when he found out she had contacted police and threatened her.
Ross allegedly had contact with the victim on three occasions, the last time on May 4 (when the girl says he threatened her):
...he allegedly stated, "Why did you call the police on me? I should kick your a--," according to a police report. Ross also allegedly grabbed her arms to restrain her while she was fearful for her safety, according to the report.
An Illinois criminal attorney would have a better idea of what's in store for Ross, if convicted.
DANVILLE -- The afternoon group of Pre-K students arrives at East Park Elementary. Parents like Kimberly Ellison say of all places, Danville can least afford a second strike.
"This community is already at a disadvantage," she said, "You know, a lot of lower-income people, job-wise...I think this is all the kids have."
School bus drivers here say they deserve a better deal. If there's no agreement soon, they might go on strike. That could force the district to close schools for the second time this year.
Parents say the teacher's strike in September already gave them enough headaches. Superintendent Mark Denman says he was unaware of the issue until we brought it to his attention Tuesday. The two sides will meet later this week. Parents hope both sides will consider what a strike would do to the kids.
"The kids have been through it, so they know at least what's going on" said parent Kim Spangler, "It's not something completely new for them and we'd find something to take up the time if they strike but hopefully, they won't."
Spangler says at the very least parents will have a better idea of what to do this time around.
"Just try to find stuff to do," Spangler said, "Keep them doing some kind of school work so they're not falling behind."
First Student Spokeswoman Maureen Richmond tells us the two sides are still negotiating. When we approached union officials Tuesday, they refused to comment. Parents like Ellsion say families have already sacrificed enough this year.
"The kids have to get an education some time and we pay for it," she said.
Richmond says the two sides spoke Wednesday by phone. She confirmed there will be a face-to-face meeting Friday morning.
Denman says he's encouraged by the progress but all he knows for sure is that buses will run Thursday. The district will not make any decisions about closing schools until it knows for sure there will be a strike.
