    David and Delia Jimenez of Newburgh consider themselves very religious Catholics, so, when Mrs. Jimenez’s diagnosed cancer disappeared two years ago, they attributed it to their praying at St. Patrick’s Church. Mr. Jimenez wanted to show his appreciation, so his wife asked the priest if he could clean the large crucifix outside the house of worship as a thank-you. He was granted the OK and, on Memorial Day 2010, as he stood on a step stool scrubbing the stone image of Jesus Christ, the monument toppled over, crushing his leg. He was rushed to Westchester Medical Center, where his leg...

    ITY OF NEWBURGH – Residents and family of a 22-year-old man killed by police officers shouted down police and Newburgh officials during a news conference on Friday. Newburgh police Chief Michael Ferrara said four officers chased Michael Lembhard inside 55 Liberty St. late Wednesday night, planning to take him into custody on an arrest warrant. Lembhard struggled with the officers, broke free and grabbed a 12.5-inch kitchen knife, Ferrara said. He threatened to kill himself and then suddenly lunged at officers with a knife, Ferrara said. Two opened fire. Before Ferrara finished, people in the crowded City Hall chambers began...

    It's scant comfort that the four men ar rested Wednesday night as they car ried out what they thought was their own private jihad -- attempting to car-bomb two Riverdale synagogues and shoot down military planes in upstate Newburgh -- were not trained terrorists. Don't be misled by the amateurish nature of their misadventure. What the four lacked in brains, they more than made up for in malign intent. And the fact that their plot went as far as it did -- the men actually had planted what they thought were deadly bombs before the feds moved in -- dramatically...

    NEW YORK — For nearly a year, Shahed Hussain would slip into his role as a wealthy Pakistani businessman and head for Newburgh. He was “Maqsood” when he arrived at local mosque Masjid Al-Ikhlas driving a BMW, or maybe Hummer depending on the day. He was there to listen for Islamic extremism and report back to the FBI, he said. Hussain testified on Friday in the federal trial of four Newburgh men accused of trying to shoot down planes at Stewart Air National Guard Base and blow up a synagogue and Jewish center in the Bronx. The men — James...

    NEWBURGH – City officials say Newburgh will participate in Orange County’s latest gun buyback program on January 16 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. The buyback program is part of a countywide effort to get guns off the streets and keep them out of dangerous hands. In exchange for the weapons being turned in, no questions asked, the person turning the gun in will receive Shoprite gift cards. They range from $25 to $150 depending upon the condition and type of weapon turned in. Since this program began in the county, over 100 weapons have been recovered. Mayor Nicholas Valentine...

    Is it possible that the Bronx Four operated alone, without any connection to foreign terrorists. In an elaborate sting operation, four African-American Muslim men were arrested Wednesday night in New York City for attempting to bomb two synagogues in the Bronx and for conspiring to shoot down military planes at an Air National Guard base in Newburgh, NY. James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payen were friends who had met while serving time in prison and it was there that they converted to Islam. The bombs in their possession were fake; supplied to them by an FBI informant...

    NEWBURGH, N.Y. - Sunday morning in this small Hudson Valley city, more than 1,000 parishioners, most from Mexico, pack Spanish-language Masses at St. Patrick's Catholic Church. Afterward, many families flock to El Azteca for its authentic tacos. If somebody needs a ride home, there are at least a dozen local taxi companies catering to newcomers born in the Mexican states of Puebla and Jalisco. New residents from Mexico have, in the past four years, opened dozens of businesses that have begun to reinvigorate the ailing downtown district; they are the region's fastest growing community. It's the same story elsewhere in...

    NEWBURGH, N.Y. -- A college basketball player who turns away from the U.S. flag during the national anthem was jeered by flag-waving students at a road game, even while she was on the bench. Toni Smith, a senior at Manhattanville College, was booed at Mount St. Mary at a game Thursday night. Smith is protesting "that the government's priorities are not on bettering the quality of life for all of its people, but rather on expanding its own power.'' She has turned away from the flag all season. Before Thursday's game, the Mount St. Mary student government handed out small...
