CORNWALL — There are many art sales in the Northwest Corner, but most involve new work by local or regional artists. 

The Cornwall Library takes a slightly different approach with its annual Labor Day Weekend Art Sale, which is in its third year and will open with a reception on Friday, Aug. 23, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the library. 

At this sale, which has grown in size and popularity, library patrons and other area residents donate works of art from their own homes, to be resold to benefit the library.

‘War of Worlds’ dramatized

The Town Hall Players, posing after their curtain call March 24, presented the radio play “War of the Worlds.” The scene was set with the Town Hall theater mostly dark; actors ranged around the audience and flashlights were used to dramatically punctuate screams, sound effects and excerpts from the original Mercury Theatre on the Air production. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales was donated to the Cornwall Food and Fuel Bank.

Nips, tucks, shifts as town seeks ways to pay bills

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — There are many pieces to the budget puzzle. What the Board of Finance will attempt to do at this point is get as clear a picture as possible of how the pieces will fit together as it works on a 2012-13 budget proposal. The goal, of course, is to cover expenses with revenues while assuring there are savings for planned (and unplanned) future expenses.
It will not be an easy year for budgeting. The grand list is down 13.5 percent after last year’s revaluation. That’s $61 million needed to make up at the current mill rate.

Tribute to Marc Simont: The art of a life well-lived

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Just past the appointed hour, Marc Simont made his entrance — certainly not contrived by him to be stylish — accompanied by his wife of 67 years, Bee, and his sister, Jenny Ireland. The Cornwall Library meeting room was packed. The room burst into applause.
Simont modestly accepted the accolades. An amazing career of roughly 75 years as an illustrator was what all had come to celebrate. But there was a much deeper tone to the reception. His admirers are also his friends, and the people with whom he has built a fine community.

Town vault gets scrubbing along with new paint

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — A much-needed repainting of the Town Hall vault is done, under a modification of regulations aimed at preserving documents. Good thing, too, as it revealed a dangerous situation.
When Town Clerk Vera Dinneen proposed the work — the first repainting in more than 40 years — she consulted regulations and was dismayed to learn she would have to move all the land deeds and vital records to a vault elsewhere. It would be time-consuming and expensive, and there needed to be a way to maintain public access to records.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — At least this time, the cows were not put off their milking.
A wayward driver slammed into the corner of a barn at Stone Wall Dairy Farm on Route 7 in Cornwall March 5. Farmer and property owner Chris Hopkins said a support pole at the north end of the barn was hit and that the wall was moved about an inch to the west by the force of the impact.
