Footsteps at CCS felt around the world

CORNWALL — After stepping off their buses at the intersection of Cream Hill and Cogswell Roads on a beautiful Friday afternoon, Oct. 14, students from Cornwall Consolidated School (CCS) were greeted by a host of local friends and family.

cythiah@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — It’s fairly rare to see a moose in the Northwest Corner, so the one who visited the area last week stirred up a lot of attention, even appearing on the local television news.
It’s clearly a male, with a modest rack of antlers (full-grownmales can have antlers that spread as wide as 5 feet). It had an attractive fur collar around its shoulders, making it look a little like a 19th-century New York City socialite.
