It was thanks to you and your school in Hicksville that I got started in this field at the age of about 30, back in the late '70s. I heard you had joined my alma mater, the Eastern District of NY, where I was a per diem 1978-1982.
I'd be very interested to get out to see your museum in Central Islip. I thought the history of reporting started with Marcus Tulius Tyro of ancient Rome. I didn't know it went back further than that, to ancient Assyria! I live in Ocean County, NJ now, so it's not so easy to get out there, but I will.
Hey, Dom! Nice to hear from ya! Yep, I'm still a youngin' but I'm gonna grab my pension from this city while I can. Our court administrator asked me to do per diem until end of year, so I remain the working retired one. But I love doing Realtime for the judge I'm with--she's a pleasure to work for!! Looking forward to different venue but of course still in reporting--and a little more time free-up to do more trips like China. What a blast that was. Happy Holidays to you and yours until we meet at the next seminar, convention, or world travel opportunity!!
Hello Dominick, I am so inspired with your experience in this field. My goal is to be a freelance reporter. I am just about finish with school at LIBI. I just need four more test. I truely love this field, this is all I think about everyday. I went from four years in the Navy cargo handling, to four years working in a nursing home, to the BEAUTIFUL FIELD of COURT REPORTING. This is going to be the best change I ever made.
Good to hear from you. I share your love for the field of court reporting. It's a great community to be involved in. I think my next NCRA function will be in Chicago to see Ms. Melanie sworn in. Hope to see you in Chicago also.
