CORNWALL — Following months of consideration by four Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) subcommittees, a draft of a revised 10-year Town Plan of Conservation and Development is ready to be commented upon by the public as a step toward arriving at a final draft.

The public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov.12, at the Town Hall, beginning at 7 p.m. 

Although the town plan has no legal regulatory muscle, it does serve as a guide in considering future proposals, a yardstick to use in deciding whether those proposals align with principles presented in the...

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Two kids, a couple of dogs and about a dozen grown-ups walked into the woods on Sunday. Less than an hour later, they emerged drenched, happy and resolved to come back on a regular basis.
Red salamanders — not snakes — were the predominant form of wildlife found at the Rattlesnake Preserve, one of three trails the Cornwall Conservation Trust (CCT) is showcasing this summer with family-friendly guided hikes.

Cornwall library makes shifts to bring back fired librarian

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — After more than a month — and quite a bit of public outcry — Amelia “Amy” de Neergaard has been reinstated to the Cornwall Library staff.
She had worked there for 14 years, mainly as children’s librarian, until she was fired without warning June 20 by Library Director Amy Cady. The dismissal — and the manner in which she was told to quickly clear out —sparked a petition and letters from the numerous community members who patronize, volunteer and financially support the library.

End-of-year fiscal housekeeping
karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — The end of the fiscal year and a preliminary accounting show town and school budgets with a combined surplus of more than $200,000.
Details of town accounts were reviewed at the July 17 Board of Selectmen’s meeting. They revealed some transfers from the contingency fund to cover line item overages, such as salaries for Hammond Beach last summer.
The town beach has been getting heavier use, First Selectman Gordon Ridgway said, and last summer had few rained-out beach days, meaning more staff put in more hours, totaling $2,067 that was transferred from the contingency fund.

Spirits soar thanks to wildlife at Family Day

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Family Day at the Cornwall Historical Society July 15 was not dampened by showers toward the end. Children dodged raindrops between two tents on the lawn and the museum.
Outside, Joe Brien helped a steady stream of youngsters make wooden mallets on hand-cranked equipment, and Erin O’Connell of Sharon Audubon helped youngsters make friends with a snake, turtles, a Madagascar hissing cockroach, a tarantula, a walking stick and a kestrel named Bob.

What it’s like to be on a board
karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — A first foray in what will be a series of looks at what it’s like to volunteer in town government was presented July 11 by the Republican Town Committee (RTC).
It was not well-attended, but members of the newly revived RTC hope that as word spreads, the forums will become for many a valuable tool in making a decision about serving their town, and what role might spark their interest. To be discussed are mostly volunteer positions such as the school and finance boards and various land use commissions. In Cornwall, only the selectmen are paid.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — It sounds like a movie trailer: Out of tragedy comes triumph. But this true story rivals any Hollywood film script.
The romantic leads in this tale are Cornwall native Caroline Kosciusko and Tyler Clary, who comes from California and attended the University of Michigan — and recently earned a spot on the 2012 United States Olympic swim team.
