Cornwall

It seemed West Cornwall’s Mid-Winter Stroll missed winter by one weekend. Compared to the cold weather and snow over the weekend of Feb. 11 and 12, the Mid-Winter Stroll (held in West Cornwall on Saturday, Feb. 18) felt like the first hint of spring. The 50-degree temperatures came across as practically balmy and by the stroll’s start at 3 p.m. the ice sculptures, sponsored by National Iron Bank and Ingersoll Furniture and shaped by the talented hands of Zejke Hermann, had already begun to melt.

All is shipshape at Duke Besozzi’s lumberyard

CORNWALL — The massive white oak trees that dot the hillside at Salisbury’s Town Grove are cherished both as sentinels of the town’s history and for their awesome appearance. When they die, they remain appreciated for their incomparable value — sometimes even in places worlds away from the Northwest Corner.
A few years ago, Duke Besozzi of Cornwall, owner of New England Naval Timbers, received a call from Salisbury First Selectman Curtis Rand, notifying him about a dead white oak from the Grove that needed to be taken down.

CORNWALL — In 2008, when documentary filmmakers Dominique Lasseur and Catherine Tatge of Cornwall embarked on a documentary series about democracy for public television, they felt that something was missing: the right audience.
“We realized that the people we really wanted to address were young people,” Lasseur said in an interview with The Lakeville Journal. He described young people as being “alienated and disconnected from public life.”
He and Tatge sought to remedy that societal ailment.
