Editor’s Notebook: 4/27/11

• So I thought we had it bad here in Norwich last night when my cats got spooked by a couple loud claps of thunder. Then I saw the pictures of what happened over at G-MU’s brand new sports fields. Yikes.

• Speaking of yikes, I just mentioned my cats in my blog. Seriously, Jeff.

• Headed up to Sherburne-Earlville tonight to see a dress rehearsal of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing.” Colleen Law-Tefft and her talented troupe of thesps never let me down, so I can’t wait to see them tackle The Bard. Tomorrow night, it’s over to Afton to see “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.” I love pretending to be a critic.

• Is it me, or does the new Byrne Dairy look ridiculously huge? Seems like it’s going up at breakneck speed, as crews put up pretty much the whole roof yesterday. I know there’s a lot going on inside with a convenience store and laundromat, but the roof line looks … barn-esque. And yes, that is an architectural term.

• Goodbye to Maureen Carpenter, who leaves Commerce Chenango today for (Bowling) Greener pastures in Kentucky. So who’s in charge of the Chamber now? Umm, no one. We’ll keep you posted on that one.
