sonally know many professionals
living in Shenorock——nurses,
teachers, police o cers and jour-
nalists (including myself ). Many
families with young children
have also found in Shenorock an
a ordable place to make a home.
e newspaper’s inaccuracy is
point number one. Point num-
ber two, but no less important, is
that the description is elitist, as
if blue-collar workers aren’t the
“same” as people in more a u-
ent areas of Somers. e use of
the word “enclave” further gives
the impression that Shenorock
and Lincolndale are basically the
ghettos of Somers.
To make such class distinc-
tions in your newspaper does
your readers a disservice. And by
the way, even people who don’t
make a lot of money would like
to see the sewer project approved.
Some of us on septics are tired of
living in the dark ages.
