CORNWALL — Guided by the recently adopted Town Plan of Conservation and Development, the Cornwall selectmen discussed preliminary goals for the coming year at their regular meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 3, at the Town Hall.

The annual budget process will begin in January. 

“At this point in the year, there are no major budget problems connected with the 2019 budget,” First Selectman Gordon Ridgway reported, as he reviewed the outline of the 2019 capital expenditures budget, as well as the town operating budget.

Artist turns discarded materials into conversation pieces

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

Constance Old’s work seems to be a true reflection of her personality. She is passionate about making a statement, but not to the point of becoming too serious and missing the humor in things.
She is a fiber artist and printmaker who is currently focused on using a hooked rug technique to create pieces that are layered with symbolism. There is often a literal statement. Her word rugs are popular.
She uses shredded strips of almost anything, almost everything discarded. Call it recycling, but for Old, it takes on a deeper meaning.

The calf is sacred to American Indian tribes including the Oglala Lakota Nation Sioux in South Dakota. Later this month, members of the United Church of Christ, Cornwall will embark on an annual mission trip to the Pine Ridge reservation.

Fired librarian to return to staff

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 numerous community members who patronize, volunteer and financially support the library.

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.
