After living in Rochester, N.Y., for 33 years, Philip McCahill and his wife, Mary Liz, moved to Dallas for a year or two assignment with Xerox Corporation. Renting a home in North Dallas close to work, their goal is take advantage of this adventure to enjoy the Dallas area as well as tour the Southwest. The next step will be retirement, possibly in Portland, Maine, where their daughter Martha lives. Although Dallas is distant from Cape Cod, Phil hopes to spend as much time as possible at their place there, especially during the hot Texas summers. * Kevin Cooman sent a press release from Rochester, N.Y., last summer in which his law firm announced the successful conclusion of 10-year-long civil rights litigation on behalf of plaintiffs Beechwood Restorative Care Center and the Chambery family against current and former New York Department of Health defendants in which the state agreed to pay $25 million as compensation for damages. Kevin and his co-counsel were trial counsel for the plaintiffs. * Cindy Genta Strehlow continues to work as a piano technician and is doing some contract work for the University of Illinois. She enjoys being a church worker bee and last summer joined a community-supported agriculture project that has the added component of donating vegetables to the local food bank. Two tons the first year! Cindy’s three children are thriving: Julia, M.S.W., works for the Child Advocacy Center in Chicago, Charlie is in his fourth year of a physics Ph.D. program at Iowa State University, and Henry is student-teaching in physics as well. * In the November election in Maine, Karen Kusiak, D-Fairfield, defeated the Republican incumbent in a race for House of Representatives District 84. Karen took two of the district’s three towns, winning in Fairfield and Rome. A lifelong educator, she plans to emphasize investments in the state’s infrastructure and schools as a way to make Maine more attractive as a place to live and do business. * The focus of Jeffrey Frankel and his wife at this stage in life is on their children. They traveled with their daughter last summer to France, Greece, and Israel; their son is finishing graduate school at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. Jeffrey’s company, Massage Envy, was acquired in the fall for the third time in four years, but he survived and intends to remain there for another five years. Jeffrey and his wife continue to enjoy traveling, trying to better understand the world in which we live. * Carol Majdalany Williams lives in Litchfield, Conn., where she and her husband work in their own business. Carol volunteers at an inner-city school in Waterbury and has recently completed training for Literacy Volunteers. Their daughter, Carla, is in her third year of medical school at Johns Hopkins, and their son, Peter, works in Arlington, Va., at alarm.com. * With space to spare, from your class correspondent, Susie Gearhart Wuest is in the midst of the first of her two-year term as regent of her DAR chapter in Boca Raton, Fla. Having always been a worker bee in the past, being the one in charge is proving to be a learning and growing experience, which includes some public speaking at community events. Never say never!
