West River Valley


News from the Rt. 30 Corridor, including Newfane, Harmonyville, Townshend, and more.

Car Keys Lost In/On West River

While tubing Monday 6/16, discovered their absence about halfway between the Dummerston Covered bridge and the remnants of the old railroad bridge (near the Irving station on Route 30).  2 car keys (for upstream and downstream cars) were double-bagged together inside 2 ziplok bags.  

If you're swimming or kayaking in this area or downstream and see something floating (or underwater) please grab them and reply to this article...replacement keys are expensive these days, so waterlogged or not, there'll be a reward!  Don't divulge details of exactly what you found in your reply, though, save that for private followup for identification.

Kudos to Town of Newfane Administration & Volunteers

I had an opportunity to read Newfane's 154th Annual Town Report this weekend and am moved to give a shout-out to all the paid and volunteer folks who absorbed the huge amount of time associated with the aftermath of Storm Irene.

Extraordinary effort!

Thanks for all you do! 

Here's a link to the Town of Newfane website.

Village Tower Near Newfane?

Did you see the article in the Reformer that VTEL has identified an alternative site for a tower near the Village of Newfane?  What do you think is going to happen next?  NIMBY action or is this going to happen?
