Wrapping up 30 years as a Cornwall school nurse

Cornwall Consolidated School nurse Martha Bruehl was surprised on Monday morning, June 17, with a going away ceremony. She will be retiring this year after three decades at the school and plans to do some traveling. She vowed to be available as a substitute nurse if needed; perhaps she was inspired to make that promise when she saw how the students and faculty bandaged themselves up for the surprise ceremony.

Truck full of bedding gets stuck on bridge

WEST CORNWALL — As sometimes happens, a truck attempting to cross the covered bridge between Sharon and West Cornwall got stuck halfway through, on Monday, June 10. Emergency service workers came out and deflated the tires so the vehicle could be extracted. 
One of the firemen noted the bridge is taller on the West Cornwall side than on the Sharon side, which has led periodically to trucks thinking they can get through when they in fact cannot. The truck was carrying a load of mattresses.
