CORNWALL — New property tax assessments have hit mailboxes.
With these new assessments, the town’s Grand List of all taxable property in the town will drop in the next fiscal year by about 15 percent. The fiscal year begins July 1.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Marina Matsudaira is this year’s Superintendent Award winner at Cornwall Consolidated School.

When asked what she wants to be when she grows up, Marina said she didn’t know yet, then asked if it had to be about a job.
The question was restated, and she answered without hesitation, “I want to be a mother.”
