He’s shown with Village Water and Wastewater Superintendent Joe Bates.

    Throughout the 1980s on the east side of Hilltop Road at Fairground Road there stood a modest, old house with a conspicuously large metal cage in the back yard. On nice days, passersby who happened to focus beyond the fencing would likely have seen what appeared to be a lion. Was it a pet? Did it live there permanently? Could it escape?

  • Hello, dahlias! Looking swell, dahlias

    September is the height of dahlia season, and several growers in the village are feasting their eyes on their long-awaited prizes, which come in more varieties and colors than the average eye can appreciate. (photo by Lauren Heaton)
