  Ahh, the first day of school in Corning-Painted Post … For so many parents, a day of mixed emotions … the conflicting feelings that come just after drop-off … like “how quickly can I get to my office for my first real, blessed work day in months?” and “how early is too early for […]

Plans for the old Corning Hospital building: Kids’ Perspectives

Posted on Jun 12, 2015 in Community Voices, Unique Area Businesses

Every time a new business comes to town or a renovation project is in the works, I hear conversations about what could have been, what should have been, or what could be. Every idea comes from a certain perspective, although I’ve learned over the years that many of them are shared throughout this small town. Recently, I […]

The Journey to Corning as a Lesbian

Being in Corning for over 8 years has given me a general idea of the pros and cons of small-town living. I’ve run into people I’d rather avoid, but I’ve also made friends I’d never meet in larger cities.

Unsung Heroes of Corning

Unsung Heroes of Corning

Posted on Aug 27, 2014 in Best of Corning, Community Voices

I was raised on West Second Street on Corning’s Southside near CFA, and my father was born and raised in Corning, too. This makes me an undeniably honest-to-god Corningite, and no matter how much traveling and moving around I’ve done in the past 10 years or have yet to do, I still reserve the right […]

Twenty Dollars and Two Hours

Twenty Dollars and Two Hours

Parking in Corning has its limitations and frustrations, but one thing is for sure: when you’re parked on Market Street, you get two hours before needing to move to the next zone. I’ve always wondered what a visitor or tourist is able to accomplish in that amount of time, so I found a test subject […]
