    Steve Urbon: William Carey's death closes a chapter ...

    NEW BEDFORD - I've been at this newspaper for a long time, but not long enough to know first-hand how it was when James H. Ottaway Jr. was publisher.  It was different for William "Bill" Carey, the young attorney, later a Superior Court judge, who represented former publisher Basil Brewer and then stayed on when the Ottaway Newspapers bought The Standard-Times in the late 1960s. Carey died last Saturday at 89 years of age, his interest and enthusiasm for this newspaper undiminished after all those years.
