An abundance of pizza options with three restaurants

NORTH CANAAN — I’ve lived in the Northwest Corner all my life and it’s always seemed odd to me that a town as small as North Canaan should have three pizza restaurants.

cythiah@lakevillejournal.com

NORTH CANAAN — What kind of car does Ralph Nader own? As it turns out, he doesn’t own a car, according to a spokesperson from his office in Winsted.
However, he still needs to get around, and for his talk on Saturday, July 23, at the Douglas Library in North Canaan (and other area libraries) he arrived in a Mazda 3 — sporty, yet fuel efficient. And, presumably, safe.
