Engineer David Battista will continue to work as needed. Resident expert Roger Kane said he will continue to consult on a volunteer basis.
First Selectman Gordon Ridgway stated repeatedly he will not allow red tape to slow the process.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — His Kodak pocket camera is always on hand. Alden Weigold knows that opportunity is one of the keys to great photography. He is also not shy about admitting he has talent. It is pretty evident in the large collection of his digital photos on exhibit at the Cornwall Library. The show opened with a reception this past Saturday and runs through Oct. 22.
This is his first show. If there is a theme to “The Way I See It,” it is that all of the photos were taken over summer vacation. Alden is 8 years old.

Interest in the rent-controlled homes has already been substantial. The overriding theme in comments about it was the difficulty of finding affordable retirement residences here.
