  • Delight in culinary art at Café des Artistes

    Updated Jan 14, 2016

    Silken soups, organic salads, and mushrooms that burst with flavor – these are just some of the culinary gems available at Café des Artistes. Michael Calvanese, proprietor, is adamant about using organic products. If he can’t find organic, then he purchases pesticide-free products. Fresh-baked focaccia bread is another lure to the establishment, but he doesn’t overdo the bread when making sandwiches. "I don’t believe that a sandwich should have a lot of bread – if you want b...

  • Wait until February to prune roses for spring

    Updated Jan 14, 2016

    What a rollercoaster ride we’ve been having with temperatures since November! Although daytime highs have ranged from 50s to 60s, they’ve still been as much as 10 degrees below normal. Night temps at or below 32 degrees – some nights with hard freezes – have certainly put some of my non-rose plants at risk – but what a relief to not have a repeat of last year’s snowstorm! The recent rains are certainly promising, but aren’t anywhere close to what is needed to solve four ye...

  • Recognizing early symptoms of Parkinson's disease

    Updated Jan 14, 2016

  • Re: "The cultural invasion continues" [Letter, Village News, 1/7/16]

    Updated Jan 14, 2016

    Reading the opinion piece by Carolyn Mathes "The cultural invasion continues" raised a lot of questions in my mind. Firstly, I didn't see any opinions expressed. Secondly, what was published was a lot of "information" with no verifiable sources. Thirdly, all of the included information was at least seven months old and since none of it had a year posted with it, it could be years old. I love hearing/reading peoples opinions, especially with some verifiable facts to support them. My humble opinion is that this seemed out of...
