This just in, on last week's stories!
CORNWALL â€” Updates were called in on two stories that appeared in last weekâ€™s issue of The Journal.
Just after the press deadline, new numbers came in to the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund on Cornwallâ€™s participation in the 20 Percent by 2010 campaign.
Bob Wall reported that residents, businesses and town-owned buildings buying power from renewable energy sources topped 200, which equals 30 percent participation.
As a result, the town will receive a third 1 kilowatt solar voltaic system, plus a 5 kilowatt system as a bonus for being the first in the state to reach 30 percent. Wall is attempting to assemble data to determine Cornwallâ€™s national rank, which just might be number one.
And another story that ran last week, with a vintage postcard of Riverside Lodge, up for auction on eBay?
Jennifer Clarke, of Clarke Outdoors on Route 7, just south of the Covered Bridge, called to say the lodge was at the site of the companyâ€™s current building. She tried to buy the card, but missed the auction. She was advised to contact the seller, who consistently offers postcards of Cornwall at the Internet site.
Apparently, a town as picturesque as Cornwall has produced a wealth of new and used postcards that do a fascinating job of chronicling its history.
