Former Governor of NY DIES!

G'day Everyone.

New York is crying today as it was announced that Former Governor Hugh L. Carey just recently passed away.

One tid bit of news: Governor Carey was helpful to set up the National Technical Institute for the Deaf on the campus of Rochester Institute of Technology long ago. He had been a friend to many of the deaf and disabled individuals in his life. NTID planned to build Building 14, which is named after Governor Carey, near the NTID building 60, but campus politics forced NTID to put Building 14 on the far side of the campus (RIT side). Building 14 was meant to help relieve over crowding in building 60 at a time it was needed. But it was also at a time that RIT demanded NTID to help it's students begin to mainstream with the campus then.

Governor Carey helped New York State to stay financially afloat in a tough economic times in the 1970s to 1980s. But since then, we've had a slew of Governors who have NOT been able to bring the New York State back to it's strong Economics roots that Gov. Carey put down.

God bless to Governor Carey. He will be missed. I hope that NTID building 14 becomes a permanent memorial to Gov. Carey.


Till next post, I'll clue you in.
