SCS students asked Principal Lisa Carter if the school would sponsor a dramatic event, and Carter agreed.

cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE — The annual fishing derby for youngsters was held at Lake Wononscopomuc on the opening day of the fishing season (Saturday, April 16). It certainly wasn’t the coldest opening day in recent memory. And at least this year there wasn’t ice on the lake or snow on the grass around the pond.
But, reported Grove Manager Stacy Dodge, it was cold and blustery enough that many fishing families stayed home. Only 17 youngsters entered the derby.

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

By Patrick L. Sullivan
SALISBURY — The Board of Education presented to the Board of Finance on Thursday, April 14, a proposed budget that includes $59,119 in last-minute additions.
The school board met in a special meeting before the finance board to deal with a series of unexpected developments:
• A glitch in a computer program resulted in underbudgeting for fuel oil — by 5,000 gallons.
• A faculty member opted to take part in the health insurance plan.
• Diesel fuel had to be budgeted at $4 per gallon instead of $3.
• Hours for support staff had to be adjusted.

Ice is out. Honest

Lake Wononscopomuc’s Official Ice Watcher

LAKEVILLE — Finally! The surface of Lake Wononscopomuc was completely ice-free as of the evening of Tuesday, April 5.
A month ago the ice began to soften, but the recent cold weather, especially the nights, caused the ice to hang on — despite some heavy winds.
However, the slightly warmer temperatures and rain this past week finally did the trick.
Ice in was Dec. 30, so the number of days the lake was completely covered in ice comes to 96. This is somewhat more than the average of the last decade.
The latest date for ice out that I am aware of is April 13, about eight years ago.

Town considers trash service switch

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — The time to make a decision on whether to enter into a contract with the Connecticut Resource Recovery Authority (CRRA) is drawing near and other options are being discussed. CRRA takes the town’s garbage from the transfer station the town pays a fee per pound.
As part of that process, the Transfer Station and Recycling Advisory Committee (which oversees the current Salisbury-Sharon transfer station) is now looking at how the two towns stack up in recycling compared to other municipalities.
