Today's word on journalism

Monday, April 24, 2006

Dueling masters on words:

"He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the dictionary."

--William Faulkner, writer (1897-1962), on Ernest Hemingway, writer (1899-1961)

"Poor Faulkner. Does he really think big emotions come from big words?"

--Ernest Hemingway, writer (1899-1961), on William Faulkner, writer (1897-1962)

Cornish drafts subdivision ordinance

By Katie Smedley

March 5, 2006 | CORNISH -- The Planning and Zoning Commission held a public hearing Thursday to revise the draft of the new subdivision ordinance.

The commission has been working on the ordinance for several months now, said Amy Murphy, town recorder. The ordinance was modeled after Lewiston's subdivision ordinance.

Chris McKnight, commission chairman, said, "A subdivision ordinance is necessary to protect the town and its residents, to keep organization and ensure that subdivisions are finished properly."

The ordinance originally stated if a resident wanted to divide agricultural land it had to be at least 10 acres. The commission amended that for only five acres to be required for dividing the land.

The final draft of the subdivision ordinance will be presented to the town council March 16.
