Clifton Board of Education Employee in Need…

Danny Listmeier is the head custodian at the Clifton High School Annex on Brighton Road. This past week Danny was involved in an awful car accident and family members have set up a GoFundMe page to assist with medical bills and expenses. Below is an excerpt from the Go-Fund-Me page that Danny’s family has created. They update the page daily with information on his recovery progress.

“My cousin, Danny Listmeier, son of Lani (Teacher School 2) and Jerry Pollastro (BOE Maintenance Division), nephew of Cathy (Teacher CHS) and John Burke (Retired Clifton Police LT), (including many other family members and friends to SO many), was in an awful car accident. He sustained many injuries and is currently in the ICU. Tomorrow will be a week since his accident and he is still fighting for his life. He has bleeding on the brain, and many other injuries. Along with prayers and positive thoughts, we are seeking donations for future medical bills and/or expenses that he will endure. He is going to have a long road to recovery but he is a strong person and we are confident he will fight to get well. That being said, we don’t want him to worry about finances for the time being. I can’t explain how much we appreciate all the calls and messages we have received thus far. Danny is DEFINITELY loved. We will try to keep people updated on his progress as much as possible. We thank you for your donation in advance. Every little bit will help.”

Friends and Family,

Unfortunately one of our own, Patrolman Mike Howe, has suffered a stroke while vacationing in Aruba this past week. The only way for him to return to the US was by medivac since he has no use of his left side. The cost for this service is $38,000. We are asking friends and family to help by donating whatever you can afford to help ease the burden of such a high cost.

Patrolman Howe has been a member of the Clifton Police Department since 2003. He is also an Army veteran who has fought for this country in a number of Iraqi wars including Desert Storm.

If you would like to donate please visit the page below. (

Every donation will be greatly appreciated. I thank you all in advance for considering helping out this family in a time of need.

Veteran Needs Emergency Assistance

Michael Howe, a.k.a. Mighty, went on vacation to Aruba with his wife Nancy last week.  Unfortunately, Mighty suffered a stroke.  He is now in the hospital in Aruba.  The left side of his body is paralyzed. While we would think that the doctors in Aruba are doing everything they can to help Mighty, his pressure has not gone down much over the past week.  The doctors will not release him, and he is unable to fly home.  We are looking to raise money to have him medivaced home, back to America ASAP.  The cost to have him medivaced is $38,000. We believe that once Mighty is back here in the states, he will get the proper care.

Mighty is a decorated officer with the Clifton Police Force.  He is also a veteran who fought in a number of Iraqi wars, including Desert Storm.

Your donations will be GREATLY appreciated.


Due to the severity of Mighty’s condition, it was best to bring him home sooner rather than later. Several credit cards were used to cover the $38,000 medivac fee.

In addition to the high interest rate on these credit cards, an international transfer fee was also assessed.
Medical costs continue to mount, and health insurance does not cover medi-vac services.

Your continued support will truly be a blessing to the family.
