Perfect weather and the open studio doors attracted art buyers and the curious to 11 studios and galleries located throughout Cornwall. Finding the studio locations was part of the fun.

At Robert Parker’s studio near West Cornwall village, Parker’s wife, Judy, fielded rapid-fire questions in the studio...

CORNWALL — A greenhouse at Cornwall Consolidated School would seem just the thing. This is, after all, a town that promotes green energy and sustainability.
The school has been offered a donation of a used greenhouse. School board members and staff think the addition is a great idea. They need to move quickly, but are cautious about the potential for hidden costs and drawbacks.

In a mild winter, trading tree stumps for snow

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Stump grinding traded for snow plowing. It’s been that kind of a winter. For anyone dealing with a town snow removal budget, it’s all good.
Before the light snow late last week, only about $16,500 of Cornwall’s $75,000 snow budget had been spent, it was reported at the Feb. 21 Board of Selectmen’s meeting. Most of that was spent on road salt, but there was still a pretty good-sized pile of that left.
The board approved transferring and spending $10,000 of that line item on the removal of a portion of a very large pile of tree stumps and logs from the town gravel pit.

Towns anxious about revenues

Officials fear governor’s plans could backfire
karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — A legislative breakfast at the Wandering Moose Cafe Feb. 23 offered a cozy setting over coffee, but the struggle in Hartford a few weeks into the latest legislative session had a chilling effect on a small gathering of legislators, town and regional planning officials and the press.
There was a marked difference in the tone from breakfasts held in previous years. The focus is always on a list of issues that will affect towns here, typically driven by unfunded mandates and cuts in state aid.

Writing a future for herself as an author

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Anna D’Alvia wants to be a writer when she grows up. But it seems that it’s not going to work out the way she planned. It turns out she’s well ahead of schedule. She’s a writer now, and has already won prizes for two submissions to the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.
The eighth-grader at Cornwall Consolidated School placed in the Northeast Regional Competition. She earned a Silver Key Award for poetry and a Gold Key Award for a short story in the “flash fiction” category. The latter will be judged along with Gold Key Award winners nationwide.

Crisis-ready

Maintaining a generator for emergencies
karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — The thrumming of a generator, the crackling of logs in a fireplace, heating dinner atop a woodstove. All make us feel secure, with a leg up on whatever Mother Nature might dish out.
But anything that offers welcome heat and light during a power outage also bears close monitoring when in use — and maintenance when not. It’s not so easy for us creatures of an automated world.

Youth and stamina once again trump age and wile

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — “Mom, could you get open?”
Not something you usually hear in a basketball game. But at Cornwall Consolidated School (CCS) Feb. 13, it was the middle school girls’ basketball team against “the parents” — a loosely contrived group that also included some current students, a former student and school Principal Michael Croft (who turned out to be a ringer).
After more than an hour of grueling play, it was 39-36, students. It was a hard-fought battle.

Keeping food safe in an emergency

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Staying safe and maintaining a backup power supply are priorities in a prolonged emergency situation.
So is eating.
Most of us keep days, if not weeks or more worth of non-perishable food on hand, along with meat and other perishables in one or more freezers. But it can all quickly become a useless, and even dangerous supply if not stored and monitored correctly.
