Torn between two continents
Suki Chen is torn between two continents. In America, she has a nail salon in Cornwall and a home and family in New Windsor. In China, she has three young nieces (ages 4, 7 and 11) who are living as orphans.
The girls’ parents were in an automobile crash on June 12. Their mother died and their father sank into a coma that has lasted for seven months.
The girls were left to fend for themselves until their grandmother (Suki Chen’s mother) flew from the United States to China. She was with them for a short while when she was killed by a hit-and-run driver while crossing the street on July 26. Page 1
Reval letter coming in February
If you’re a Cornwall property owner, you can expect a letter with your new assessed value in mid-February. The letter will indicate what your taxes were last year, and what they would have been if the revaluation had already taken place.
The process doesn’t end there. If you have questions, you can arrange to meet with a representative of the company that did the work. Page 1
Larkin gets jersey; starts new term
Sen. Bill Larkin had a visitor soon after the Army football team defeated Navy. Scott Flanick is a Pine Bush graduate, who is now a sophomore at West Point. He’s on the football team as a center and long snapper.
A few years ago, when he was applying to colleges, Scott came to Sen. Larkin for a letter of recommendation. The visit must have been memorable, because Scott returned to the senator’s office last month with a souvenir jersey from Army’s historic victory. Page 1
