Weekend Update

It's 37 degrees and raining at 6:30

WKTV's Weather Forecast:
"Rain early Saturday as a storm system passes north and west of Central New York. Most of the wet weather ends by Saturday afternoon, with nothing more than a shower lingering around.

Easter Sunday looks generally quiet. A mix of sunshine and clouds with just a chance of a brief shower.

Warmer weather is likely by the middle of next week."


who turned two years old on the 21st!



It's been wet and cold!

On Wednesday afternoon the sun shone for about half-an-hour. Roger and Archie made the most of it, watching the world go by on Main Street.


On Thursday, two discouraging things happened:

it snowed.........

............... and gasoline hit the four-dollar mark.

"Landowners join together to prepare for hydrofracking"

A "thank you!" from Deb Conway, who wrote:

"The Rotary Clean-up last week was a huge success. We beat the rain and picked up 26 bags of trash, three tires, a trash can lid and a variety of other items too large to fit in a bag.
Sixteen people, some Rotarians and many community members, came out to help. The dumpster at the Village Hall was filled to the brim."


Sad news, from Fred Ashforth:

Fred and JoAnne Ashforth, Waterville, mourn the death of a family member.
