COPAKE — When Cutting Edge T Delilah blew out the candles on her seventh birthday cake on Dec. 2, she did so as a two-time Supreme Champion.   

Delilah is owned by Ken Main of Elite Dairy in Copake, N.Y., and Dr. Kenny Joe Manion of Kentucky. 

She is one of only four Brown Swiss cows to have been named Supreme Champion at the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wis., in the past 50 years. Following her win in the same category in 2018, Delilah is the first Brown Swiss to win Supreme Champion two years in a row since 1988-1989. 

Main bought Delilah...

Sandy could have been worse

CL&P explains how crews work
patricks@lakevillejournal.com

The Northwest Corner experienced power outages and some storm damage as Superstorm Sandy hit the region on Monday, Oct. 29.
But unlike last year’s freak blizzard — which in addition to knocking out power and communications for days also dumped about a foot and a half of snow, caused emergency shelters to open, sent emergency crews looking for shut-ins, and generally wreaked havoc — Sandy’s impact was more moderate.
Power in Lakeville went on and off during the day on Monday, as the winds picked up. The power finally conked out on Main Street (Route 44) around 9:30 p.m.

As if there weren’t enough going on ... turn back clocks Nov. 4

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

Welcome to “real” time. Daylight Saving Time (DST) ends this Sunday, Nov. 4, when most Americans turn the clocks back an hour.
Most people can easily remember to “spring ahead, fall back,” and will tweak their clocks correctly. And frankly, most people won’t even have to bother, since so many computers, televisions and cell phones do the tweaking automatically.
