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...

Little joy as 2012 state session comes to an end

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — The regular Legislative session in Hartford is coming to an end on May 9. Lawmakers are feeling the effects of very late nights in the final push. There is still much to be resolved, and still great angst in towns about new laws and state mandates that could have profound effects.
And so, state Sen. Andrew Roraback (R-30) and state Rep. Roberta Willis (D-64), arrived, weary, at the Wandering Moose Café early on April 26 for a legislative breakfast with town officials.

Art at the Dump highlights recycled wonders

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — There was something about the 12th annual Art at the Dump, held over the weekend at what is more properly known as the town garage and transfer station.
This year’s show-and-sale of artwork made from items found in the trash seemed bigger, with more color and movement.
Maybe it was those large mobiles made of rainbow-hued bottle caps. Or the large selection of fun art and jewelry made by Cornwall Consolidated School (CCS) students. Or the Take Part in Art wall that had folks getting into the spirit with paints and brushes.

Hams and pocket parks are coming to town

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Pocket parks are a new trend in town. It’s essentially a new name for an existing concept that happens more by chance than design, of tiny green spots perfect for a park bench.
In West Cornwall, next to the Covered Bridge, an existing informal park is getting a rehab after the rebuilding of the Lower River Road bridge. Funds from the town budget’s tree warden line item will be used for new plantings there.

It’s a Democratic town. Just look at the leadership, the active Democratic Town Committee, the bumper stickers and the lawn signs that pop up just before elections.
This story, however, is about Republicans, and what is, for now, a small faction of the 186 registered with that Grand Old Party.
