Cow chips, ahoy! Fun for all at Agricultural Fair

CORNWALL — Cornwall legend has it that the Cow Chip Contest — the traditional closing event for the town’s annual Agricultural Fair —  lasted about four hours one year. The cows who had been recruited for the task of dropping a moist chip on one square (marked off in a large field) apparently weren’t in a hurry to deliver their parcels.
With that story making its rounds at this year’s harvest season festivities, it was a relief that on Saturday, Sept. 9, the game came to a head after only 20 minutes.

West Cornwall restaurant to open

CORNWALL — A new American cuisine restaurant will open in September at the former location of the Wandering Moose restaurant, First Selectman Gordon Ridgway told the selectmen at their Aug. 22 meeting.

“It sounds very positive,” Ridgway said, adding that he hopes that the town will turn out to support the business when it opens.

French connection: style, skins, stingrays

CORNWALL — When Alexis Delletery displayed his work at Cornwall’s 58th Rose Algrant Show earlier in August, no one quite knew what to make of it. The objects were handsomely and professionally crafted — but what were they made of? Just what was that material, hard as ivory but textured like an unfamiliar animal? Not snake, not crocodile, not shark …
