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.

Under the continuing leadership of Cornwall...

CORNWALL — A parking ban was put in place last week by the Board of Selectmen, effective around the clock through March 30.
The restriction for vehicles parked on or close to town roads is routinely issued for the winter months to allow the highway department to keep roads clear of snow. There has been only one plow event so far this season, but winter’s fury is bound to hit later, if not sooner.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL— Every year, 200 million pounds of pharmaceutical waste is generated in the United States. At the same time, 35 million Americans and 1.5 million military veterans do not have prescription drug benefits.
“It is both a serious health issue and a serious environmental issue,” said Janet Carlson, CEO of One Eleven Software and a resident of West Cornwall.

Town saved on snowplowing, spent on firetrucks

Budget planning for 2012
karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — The Jan. 3 selectmen’s meeting offered a particularly short agenda, with one main item: setting dates for budget workshops.
Fiscal year 2012-13, which begins July 1, is already shaping up to be a year with some challenges along with the usual unknowns.
The Cornwall Volunteer Fire Department will not be able to stay within its operating budget for the current year. First Selectman and volunteer firefighter Gordon Ridgway said the main problem is that there has been an unusually high number of repairs to the firetrucks.

CORNWALL — Mohamed Elserafy is not into politics.
But it’s difficult for him to not get into it when talking about the past year in Egypt. He may have spent half of his 19 years here in the United States, but his heart belongs to the country where his parents were born and where all but his immediate family remains.

Quite a bit was accomplished during the last 12 months

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — The past year offered a great example of how Cornwall always manages to move forward while celebrating and preserving its rich past — along with more than a bit of record breaking.
There was, for example, the historical society’s summer exhibit featuring Dr. Brad Walker, the ultimate old-fashioned country doc.
Also in the historic village, where most homes are old enough to have been built without central heating, an outdoor wood burning furnace and pertinent regulations were scrutinized. Around town, buildings were considered for solar energy installations.

Three weeks late, Mohawk is open

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — The snow guns were turned off at Mohawk Mountain ski area Saturday, Dec. 17, after a frantic week spent getting the mountain ready to (finally) open for the season.
Four trails and three lifts opened at 8:30 a.m. , three weeks after the target opening date. Not a flake of snow was provided by Mother Nature for the slopes, but recent cold nights have allowed crews to lay down a good base, which was groomed to packed-powder perfection.
