Stay Classy, Corning!

Stay Classy, Corning!

I come from a family of educators, and believe strongly in lifelong learning.  Our community has its fair share of traditional schools where one can earn various diplomas and certificates… and when one thinks “education,” it’s easy to focus on those more career-oriented programs and institutions.  But there’s nothing wrong with learning just for fun, and we’ve […]

If there are two things we love here at Urban Corning, it’s our downtown and anytime the community comes together to celebrate something. And, it’s even better when the two coincide.

The Kitten That Brought Market Street to Its Knees

The Kitten That Brought Market Street to Its Knees

  A stray kitten spent a weekend car hopping throughout Corning.  “Lily” has since found her forever home (presumably being kept as an indoor cat).  We were on the scene two Sundays ago when Lily was extracted from her last automotive shelter – as were quite a few other members of the Corning community.  Each of them now has a […]

Savoring the Remains of Summer (Or: How Not to Strangle Your Kids Before School)

The telltale morning fog has begun to nestle into our valley, and ensures us of one thing… Autumn is on its way. But by mid-morning it breaks and gives way to 90-degree days, reminding us that summer is not quite over. If you’re anything like me, that seasonal phenomenon holds you in a weird transient […]

Every so often, Corning plays host to a large conference like the 2015 Wine Bloggers Conference, a 4-day summit featuring hundreds of wine enthusiasts and writers from all parts of the United States and Canada – or the 2016 Glass Art Society Conference, a 3-day experience for visitors from all around the world to meet their fellow artists, […]
