MH370 relatives view Indonesia crash with empathy, and envy
mysanantonio.com / Thu, 1 Jan 2015 14:13:29 UT
BEIJING (AP) — Images of bodies and wreckage floating in Indonesian waters gave relatives of those lost aboard AirAsia Flight 8501 anguish and grief, but they also provided the answers that other families have sought in vain for nearly 10 months. Families of those on the AirAsia flight "are luckier than us, because they know what happened soon afterward," said Song Chunjie, whose sister was on the plane on her way back from a photography holiday. Since Flight 370 disappeared, relatives of the missing have helped each other bear the turmoil of not knowing. Li said that when he went to Tiananmen Square with two other relatives, they were held at a security check for 40 minutes after security officers found a T-shirt with the phrase "Pray for MH370" in his bag. Relatives of victims continue to meet each other in social settings, or in part of a sports center that has been set up to enable them to send questions to Malaysia Airlines and the Chinese and Malaysian governments. Dr. George Hu, a clinical psychologist at Beijing United Family Hospital and Clinics, said the relatives of the MH370 passengers are experiencing a psychological phenomenon that parents of children who are kidnapped also go through. Associated Press researcher Yu Bing and news assistant Zhao Liang in Beijing, and writer Eileen Ng in Surabaya, Indonesia, contributed to this report.

Trump’s former Greenwich home on the market for $54 million
mysanantonio.com / Sun, 18 Jan 2015 06:00:00 UT

A trip through the double doors of the home, built in 1939, gives way to a three-story rotunda set off by a double staircase and crowned by a grand chandelier. [...] a trip throughout the rest of the house, which spans nearly 20,000 square feet, makes it feel like a normal home, with a cage of birds chirping in the sunlight and empty kennels for dogs who are out exercising. [...] when Hatton combed through the digital records of the Greenwich Multiple Listing Service, she found only five listings at or above $30 million since records have been kept electronically -- about 15 years ago. Originally built for $200,000 in 1939, it earned the distinction of the largest residential permit issued by Greenwich's building department that year. "There are very few properties like this, something with six acres on the water on a peninsula like this," said Lurie as she walked into a wood-paneled library on the first floor, where tall windows overlook a putting green and the still blue water of the harbor. "[...] a buyer needs to have the money," she said. "For 1998, that was a very big sale," said Lurie, who added the current owners immediately began a massive renovation, which includes a tennis court, as well as a 4,000-square-foot addition, built in 2000.

Angel Lajara, still recovering from the water Hurricane Harvey dumped on his home, watched in horror this week as another monster storm pounded his native Puerto Rico. Hurricane Maria, still raging through the Caribbean Thursday, left most of the island without power and Lajara had not yet been able to speak to his relatives to know if they're OK. "I suffered here with Harvey and now this," said Lajara, the 46-year-old owner of Tex Chick, a Puerto Rican restaurant in Montrose. For Tina Arreguin, anxiety already had turned to grief.
