Ancram Opera House surveys audiences, looks to future

ANCRAM — “Give the people what they want and they will come” is an old theater adage. So what better way to find out what the people want from the Ancram Opera House (AOH) and Theater than having a survey to check the pulse of some 2,000 members of the community?

Water levels in river & lakes remain dangerous

After a brief respite, it rained again on Sunday, July 25, and the Housatonic River, which had been dropping, leveled off and began to rise again.

Monday morning, July 26, the United States Geological Survey measured the river at 1,890 cubic feet per second (cfs) at Falls Village. The historical median flow is a little over 300 cfs.
