CORNWALL — The blueberries were gone before noon. But there were still plenty of tomatoes in all sorts of colors, shapes and varieties, as well as a smorgasbord of other fresh vegetables.

CORNWALL — As part of a Getting to Know Our Neighbors program, the Cornwall Association and the Cornwall Historical Society presented a talk on Saturday, Aug. 13, with Liz Shapiro, executive director of the Sharon Historical Society.
David Cadwell, president of The Cornwall Association, introduced her, and noted that there is a special relationship between Sharon and Cornwall: A small part of Sharon is actually served by the West Cornwall post office (those Sharon residents who have West Cornwall mailing addresses still pay taxes to Sharon) and use the 672 Cornwall telephone exchange.

Commissioners must attend
karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — An unusual amendment to its bylaw was approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) at a meeting earlier this summer.
After numerous discussions about meeting attendance, committee members voted to add the requirement that members attend at least half of the meetings held during each year. Anyone who violates the regulation will be asked to resign.
Chairman Pat Hare noted that P&Z members are elected, and therefore cannot be ordered to vacate a seat.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Complaints about a large number of rail cars parked for an extended period on a siding south of the center of Cornwall Bridge prompted a letter to the Housatonic Railroad Company from the Board of Selectmen.
The selectmen said they hoped not only to get answers to the immediate concern, but also open up better communications with the railroad. The letter to President John Hanlon was answered by Colin Pease, vice president of special projects.

Renaissance in store for historic Stony Batter Farm

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — The recent sale of Stony Batter Farm, and the new owners’ stated intention to preserve the historic homestead on Whitcomb Hill, was good news in and of itself.
Even better news has followed: New owners Hamilton South and Manuel Bellod, longtime weekenders from New York City, just purchased an adjoining 77 acres and two houses, and are essentially reassembling the original farm.
The main residence there dates back to the late 18th century, but the farm has been there since the 1700s. The adjacent parcel includes the stables that were once an integral part of the farm.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL – “A long time,” is Erica (Child) Prud’homme’s best offhand guess as to how many years she has exhibited in the Rose Algrant Show, Cornwall’s annual August art exhibition.
“I knew Rose, and loved her,” Prud’homme said of the woman who held regular gatherings at her Cornwall home that became a sort of enclave for local artists. The dogs sketched by Cornwall residents James Thurber and Marc Simont were often modeled on the Great Pyrenees that Algrant raised.
