MARIO CUOMO DEATH-ONCAM


AND A BIG HEADLINE AS YOU START YOUR DAY ---

A GOVERNOR MOURNS THE DEATH OF HIS FATHER, A FORMER POLITICAL HEAVYWEIGHT, ON HIS INAUGURATION DAY.

ED PAYNE REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


MARIO CUOMO DEATH-PKG


nats - I, Andrew M. Cuomo.

THURSDAY WAS A DAY OF JOY AND SORROW FOR NEW YORK GOVERNOR ANDREW CUOMO.

FIRST, HE WAS SWORN IN FOR A SECOND TERM IN MANHATTAN.

IN HIS INAUGURATION ADDRESS, HE SAID HIS FATHER, FORMER THREE-TERM GOVERNOR MARIO CUOMO, WAS NOT WELL ENOUGH TO ATTEND.

He couldn't be here physically today, my father. But my father is in this room. He is in the heart and mind of every person who is here. He's here, and he's here. His inspiration and his legacy and his experience is what has brought this state to this point.

HOURS LATER, THE ELDER CUOMO DIED.

HE HAD RECENTLY BEEN HOSPITALIZED FOR TREATMENT OF A HEART CONDITION.

THE FAMILY SAYS HE DIED AT HOME FROM "NATURAL CAUSES DUE TO HEART FAILURE."

CUOMO SERVED AS GOVERNOR FOR MORE THAN A DECADE IN THE 19-80'S AND 90'S.

HE BURST ONTO THE NATIONAL POLITICAL STAGE WITH HIS KEYNOTE ADDRESS AT THE 19-84 DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION.

IT FUELED SPECULATION HE MIGHT RUN FOR PRESIDENT, BUT HE NEVER DID.

FORMER NEW YORK GOVERNOR DAVID PATTERSON WAS AMONG THE LUMINARIES OFFERING TRIBUTES TO THE MAN THEY KNEW.

There was no one like him. He was peerless at the podium.

He could have been the president of the United States, he was that great.

CUOMO ALSO HAD THE DISTINCTION OF BEING THE FIRST GUEST ON LARRY KING LIVE, AND IT CERTAINLY WASN'T HIS LAST APPEARANCE.

MARIO CUOMO WAS 82 YEARS OLD.

I'M ED PAYNE, REPORTING. Return to index of stories...


MARIO CUOMO DEATH-ONCAM


NEW YORK CITY MAYOR BILL DE BLASIO HAS ORDERED FLAGS ALREADY FLYING AT HALF-STAFF FOR TWO SLAIN N-Y-P-D OFFICERS TO REMAIN LOWERED FOR 30 DAYS IN HONOR OF CUOMO.

VILLAGE OF ESTERO-VOTOPS


AND, IT'S A MAJOR MILESTONE FOR ONE SOUTHWEST FLORIDA COMMUNITY.

WITH THE NEW YEAR, ESTERO OFFICIALLY BECAME THE VILLAGE OF ESTERO. AFTER ANNEXING ITSELF FROM LEE COUNTY.

AN OVERWHELMING 87 PERCENT OF ESTERO RESIDENTS VOTED FOR IT.

ONE OF THE PRIMARY CATALYSTS FOR ANNEXATION IS TO PROTECT THE TUSCAN ARCHITECTURE OF ESTERO.

THOSE IN CHARGE ARE TASKED WITH CREATING A CITY GOVERNMENT FROM NOTHING.

RIGHT NOW THERE ARE NO ELECTED OFFICIALS, NO CITY HALL AND NO LAWS ON THE BOOKS.

BUT IN THE COMING MONTHS THAT WILL BEGIN TO CHANGE. Return to index of stories...

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS-OC-VO


2015 IS HERE - HAVE YOU MADE YOUR NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS YET?

A RECENT MARIST POLL FOUND FOUR OUT OF TEN OF US WILL MAKE RESOLUTIONS THIS YEAR.

BUT LAST YEAR. FOUR IN TEN DIDN'T KEEP THOSE PROMISES.

PSYCHOLIGISTS SAY, WE FALL INTO THE TRAP OF WANTING TO CHANGE MAJOR THINGS, AND WE HAVE THE EXPECTATION THAT IT'S GOING TO CHANGE VERY QUICKLY. AND IT JUST DOESN'T HAPPEN THAT WAY. AND THEN WE SET OURSELVES UP AND GIVE UP BECAUSE IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

WEIGHT LOSS IS THE TOP GOAL THIS YEAR, ACCORDING TO THAT MARIST POLL.

IN FACT, MORE THAN A THIRD OF OUR RESOLUTIONS ARE ABOUT BEING HEALTHY: EATING BETTER. GOING TO THE GYM. Return to index of stories...

"Wake up and do a good job in school."

"I'll recycle more and make my bed every morning - hopefully."

THE EXPERTS SAY TAKE SMALL STEPS. AND WRITE IT DOWN.

YOU'RE MUCH MORE LIKELY TO KEEP IT.

AND WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS. THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT!
