Carol Roehling took her husband Alex Shalash’s family sailing in brisk winds on the York River. The family fled Kuwait when Saddam Hussein invaded, and more recently they left Jordan during the Syrian uprising. She has 25 residential rentals in Cincinnati and is rehabilitating a house she bought for $14,000. “It should have cost $50,000, but the economy is terrible.” He’s a successful barber who owns three cell phone stores on the side. “That’s nothing,” Alex said. “My cousin has 30 cell phone stores.” Alex had a great time racing the wind and heeling the boat.
