A man's kayak capsized Sunday around 7:30 PM off of Cornwall. He has not been found yet.
His fiance also went in the water trying to help him, but she was picked up by boaters. She went to the hospital with hypothermia and was treated and released.Continue
My neighbor, Judith Vanderhoef, approached me just now walking my kids home from school and I promised I'd get the word out so there's more awareness:
She is being bothered by a developer, Rodney Weber.
He is developing the two large parcels on South Avenue.
He added a third property to be developed, behind the two large parcels, that is accessed by an old strip of trail, running from Sargent Avenue. I think it dates to the days of the Sargent…Continue
