CORNWALL BRIDGE — Housatonic River Outfitters  (HRO) has gift options ranging from the stocking stuffer to complete Euro-nymphing outfits for the fly-fisherman on your list.

HRO’s Holly Jones-Tufts sportingly modeled a gizmo that attaches to the belt and holds the angler’s rod while he (or she) is changing flies or tippets ($24.99), thus eliminating the traditional “tuck the rod under the arm and get stuck in the bushes” approach. There are also handy little patches to hold flies; they attach to the brim of a cap ($8.39).

Little Guild special: All cats must go

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — The Little Guild is having a clearance sale. All cats must go.
If that sounds inhumane, nothing could be further from the truth. The cat and dog rescue shelter is already over its ideal capacity for felines, and this is the time of year when demand is high for a warm place for strays. And amend that to say: All cats will only be given to a good home.

Lower property values could lead to higher taxes

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — In the coming months, the town will be looking at budgets for the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2012. The effect of the revaluation of taxable properties will weigh heavily into the equation.
In the annual town report, published late last month and reviewed at the Oct. 28 annual town meeting, the assessor reports a “modest resurgence” of building permits and property sales.

Retired model builder Guerin now has time on his hands

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL ­­— A recent vacation trip to one of the most scenic places on earth was more of a busman’s holiday for clock expert Russell Guerin.
On Campobello Island, in New Brunswick’s Bay of Fundy, he and his wife, Molly Hinchman, stayed at a hotel that was once Franklin Roosevelt’s summer home. It is now part of Roosevelt-Campobello International Park, administered by both Canada and the United States.
Among its period decor is a Seth Thomas clock, a No. 1 parlor clock made by the Thomaston, Conn., company in 1902. It hangs on the kitchen wall.

Dirt roads, detailed funding queries at town meeting

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — A small, but engaged crowd of 25 attended the annual town meeting at Town Hall Oct. 28. Coverage of the portion of the meeting devoted to the bridge repairs was published in the Nov. 3 Lakeville Journal, but of course other important work was accomplished as well.
There was little comment on the main order of business, a review of the town report, except for an impression offered by First Selectman Gordon Ridgway.
“I think it shows a pretty healthy level of involvement in the town’s running,” Ridgway said.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Residents and business owners were experiencing the usual power outages following Saturday’s storm — and expecting to be among the last to be restored. A lot of trees were down on wires.
At press time Tuesday afternoon, CL&P was reporting 99 percent of customers in town were without power.
At mid-morning, a mass notification was sent out from the Cornwall Fire and Emergency Management departments by email, text and landline. Residents were advised that a shelter was open at Cornwall Consolidated School for “heat, food, device charging and rest.”

Committee on Aging to expand

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — A small, but engaged crowd of 25 attended the annual town meeting at Town Hall Oct. 28.
There was little comment on the main order of business, a review of the Town Report, except for an impression offered by First Selectman Gordon Ridgway.
“I think it shows a pretty healthy level of involvement in the town’s running,” Ridgway said.
His point was illustrated by an agenda item to expand the Committee on Aging from five to seven members. The committee was recently re-established, with substantial interest, and a sixth person is anxious to help.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — The Cornwall Consolidated School annual walkathon went off Oct. 21 with not only the entire school participating, but a large community contingent, almost just as many dogs as people, and a llama.
In all, a little more than $6,000 in pledges was raised. It will be split between each class’s eighth-grade trip fund, the Cornwall Volunteer Fire Department and the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.
