The type of care they give is intimate—bathing, hand-holding, talking for hours, praying, painting nails, back rubs. The relationship can become close, but then, a few weeks or months later, the resident dies.

BINGHAMTON, NY (WSKG) – Thursday night was an incremental step in the decontamination process of the old IBM campus that’s expected to take years. The state presented a proposed method to do the final clean up at a building that’s much less contaminated than some of the others.
The front row of folding chairs was empty. Eight people showed up to the meeting in the hall at the First United Methodist Church on McKinley Avenue, just a block away from the Huron Campus. It’s a tragic story: IBM employed the town, cut their jobs, then left Endicott contaminated. These folks have been through a lot – they have friends and relatives with cancer. One guy is working on a film about the contamination.
Manufacturing will return to the vacant IBM site in Endicott. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that lithium ion batteries will be made on the Huron Campus.

Within five years, Dr. Shalilesh Upreti, president of C4V, said they will hire and train 232 employees. “Because there is no manufacturing as high scale like this today in the US, we have been bringing folks from overseas—especially from Japan and Korea—for the training purpose,” Upreti said.

Since the former St. Casimir’s Church was converted into Mercy House, over a hundred people have called it home. Linda Cerra is the executive director of Mercy House.

The Endicott Performing Arts Center and Theatre Street Productions present Lerner and Loewe’s classic musical, ‘My Fair Lady’. Often referred to as ‘the perfect musical’, it tells the story of a Cockney flower girl from an unstable family who is taught proper diction by a egotistical professor of linguistics. He does perhaps too good a job when she becomes not only a model of perfect English, but also a strong and independent woman who really doesn’t need him at all, and the tables are turned. Andrea Gregori and Chris Nickerson talk about the tension between their two characters and about this timeless and tuneful musical. http://wskg.org/audio/fairlady.mp3
The Cider Mill Playhouse welcomes Jan DeAngelo Productions for Rodgers and Hammerstein’s ‘South Pacific’ in a concert staging. Although they have been married and have performed together for many years, Jan and Shannon DeAngelo have never played opposite each other. They have chosen this classic musical to do just that. They talk about the perils of that, and this beloved score, which is one hit song after another, and tells a story that addresses serious themes of love against a backdrop of war. http://wskg.org/audio/southpacific.mp3

Director Bernie Sheredy speaks with WSKG’s Bill Snyder about directing Anton Chekov’s Uncle Vanya. Sheredy has found a translation of this classic play that he feels captures the spirit of the original. “Vanya is one of the most — I think — fully realized of his comedic masterpieces. It’s certainly my favorite. And to have a chance to work on it, even in just a reading, though as a reading it’s incredibly challenging, because Vanya’s a stretch for any actor.”
In the autumn of 1881, a poor, uneducated shoemaker from Massachusetts stepped off a train in Binghamton, New York. It would mark the beginning of an era that transformed and defined the region for the next 100 years. Johnson, a new documentary film from WSKG, chronicles the incredible life and legacy of the man, George F. Johnson, who shaped the Southern Tier into what it would become. Produced by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Brian Frey and utilizing rare photographs and archival film footage, Johnson traces the rise of what would become one of the largest shoe-making firms in the world, the Endicott Johnson Shoe Corporation. Johnson built more than just boots and factories; his true legacy would be the community that grew from the industrial community he created – a community so rich in tradition and culture it would become forever known as the Valley of Opportunity.
In the fall of 1914, Thomas John Watson was a broken man. Fired from a job he loved and convicted of a crime he claimed to be innocent of, his future looked bleak. But Watson would turn it all around by rebuilding his life and creating one of the world’s most influential and successful companies, IBM. Watson, a new documentary film from WSKG’s Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Brian Frey, tells the fascinating story of Watson’s rise from an impoverished childhood to a player on the world’s stage. Watson focuses on the history of IBM’s birth in Endicott, New York, and on how the company grew and evolved along with the lives and dreams of the children of the immigrants who came to the region a half century earlier.
