CORNWALL — Double the number of trivia competitors turned out for the second Trivia Night of 2019, held on Saturday, Nov. 23, at the Trinity Retreat Center, sponsored by the Cornwall Association to benefit the Cornwall Library.

The inaugural Trivia Night was held in April at the library and it drew about 50 competitors.

For the second go-round, about 100 hopeful intellectuals of all ages arranged themselves into teams to match their knowledge on all subjects and their powers of rapid recall. 

The event was imagined, created and brought about under the...

Cell tower raises historical questions about town roads

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — A petition signed by 212 Cornwall residents is calling for the designation of Old Poughkeepsie Turnpike as a public hiking trail, bridle path and bicycle trail.
It would seem an easy decision for a dirt road that connects Popple Swamp Road with the Housatonic State Forest. But First Selectman Gordon Ridgway was not exaggerating when he described it as a complicated issue at an August board meeting.

Principal Croft is not resigning

Rumors are false
karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — “My name is still on the door.”
That was Principal Michael Croft’s response to rumors that he just resigned, one year into his term at Cornwall Consolidated School.
Croft told The Lakeville Journal earlier this week, less than one week before the Aug. 27 start of the new school year, he had heard the talk as well, but did not know what may have started it.
It could be surmised it was confusion over changes at three of the six Region One elementary schools.

Yelping Hill history: Beauty, simplicity key to happiness

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — The hayloft, where for decades Yelpers gathered for dances and homespun plays and rainy days, has been transformed into a museum of sorts. There, the 90-year history of the Yelping Hill Association is spun out. The plan to create the museum — and dispel the mystery that shrouds what began as a summer enclave, and remains so to some extent — was done for the anniversary celebration.

Farm to Table dinner, Aug. 23, keeps growing

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Last year’s Farm to Table dinner was such a hit, the Cornwall Conservation Trust couldn’t not have another one this year. But the trust members did manage to find a way to improve it.
It will once again be held under a tent high on a hill at the Hart Farm Preserve on Cherry Hill Road. Diners will feast on locally raised meat and produce roasted on an open-air wood fire. While enjoying great food and company, they will be supporting the trust’s Land Acquisition Fund.

Work planned to halt Mill Brook erosion

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Plans for a more substantial structure to resist land erosion along Mill Brook in the center of West Cornwall have been initiated.
A 53-foot-long, 16-foot-high block wall has been proposed by Michael Trapp, who lives on River Road. His yard has most of the brook frontage on the north side, just above its confluence with the Housatonic River. The brook makes a 90 degree turn just before heading toward Trapp’s property.

Whither the candidate signs?

It’s not what you think
karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — If you planted a campaign sign for your favorite political candidate on your lawn, and now it’s gone, the opposing candidate and party are probably not to blame.
Signs are piling up in state Department of Transportation garages across Connecticut. These confiscated signs were the ones staked out in state highway right-of-ways, where they generally block the line-of-sight for drivers and are illegal.
