karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Anna D’Alvia wants to be a writer when she grows up. But it seems that it’s not going to work out the way she planned. It turns out she’s well ahead of schedule. She’s a writer now, and has already won prizes for two submissions to the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.
The eighth-grader at Cornwall Consolidated School placed in the Northeast Regional Competition. She earned a Silver Key Award for poetry and a Gold Key Award for a short story in the “flash fiction” category. The latter will be judged along with Gold Key Award winners nationwide.

Crisis-ready

Maintaining a generator for emergencies
karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — The thrumming of a generator, the crackling of logs in a fireplace, heating dinner atop a woodstove. All make us feel secure, with a leg up on whatever Mother Nature might dish out.
But anything that offers welcome heat and light during a power outage also bears close monitoring when in use — and maintenance when not. It’s not so easy for us creatures of an automated world.

CORNWALL — “Mom, could you get open?”
Not something you usually hear in a basketball game. But at Cornwall Consolidated School (CCS) Feb. 13, it was the middle school girls’ basketball team against “the parents” — a loosely contrived group that also included some current students, a former student and school Principal Michael Croft (who turned out to be a ringer).
After more than an hour of grueling play, it was 39-36, students. It was a hard-fought battle.

Keeping food safe in an emergency

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Staying safe and maintaining a backup power supply are priorities in a prolonged emergency situation.
So is eating.
Most of us keep days, if not weeks or more worth of non-perishable food on hand, along with meat and other perishables in one or more freezers. But it can all quickly become a useless, and even dangerous supply if not stored and monitored correctly.

Tiny dancers have big fun at contra dance

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — On the first Saturday evening of each month, a crowd — sometimes large, sometimes small — gathers at Town Hall. No matter who or how many show up, they manage to have a grand time contra dancing.
This past Saturday, the crowd was large, but the people were small, on average. It was the first Little Kids/Big Kids dance. Caller Tom Hanford, from Goshen, led about 75 children and parents in dances and dance games. It was followed by a potluck supper and the regular Family Contra Dance.
