Hats off to the good guys at Time Warner Cable for footing the bill for a brand new learning lab at Good Shepherd Services. The state-of-the-art facility will provide locals with access to computers, e-learning programs, and high-speed internet. The initiative, which is costing Time Warner more than 50,000 buckeroos (Yikes! I guess their putting that cable bill to good use!) is the first of its kind in the borough. Helpful hands that snipped the ribbon on Aug. 13 included Brien Kelley, veep of operations for Time Warner; Bill Tyson, regional veep for Time Warner; state Sen. Velmanette Montgomery, (D–Red Hook); Sr. Paulette LoMonaco, executive director of Good Shepherd Services; Assemblyman Felix Ortiz, (D–Sunset Park); Rahul Merchant, commissioner of the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications; and Assemblyman James Brennan, (D–Park Slope).

And the cable giant was happy to do it.

“Time Warner Cable is proud to partner with Good Shepherd,” said Kelley. “We are excited to invest in Park Slope and look forward to having a positive impact in the community.”

Good Shepherd is over-the-moon happy to have the Learning Lab, too.

“We are very grateful to Time Warner Cable. This Learning Lab will ensure that our participants have access to cutting-edge technology so they can improve their sills, which is vital to success in school and the workplace,” said Standing O pal Paulette.
