WANAKENA WEEKLY #17 - 05/28/20 - 06/03/20
Bridgework continues: BIG WEEK for the Wanakena Carbridge. TEMPORARY Traffic lights went up! There are FOUR places in Wanakena where a driver/biker/walker/etc… is met with a red/yellow/green traffic light: From River Street heading towards the bridge from the east, on Main Street heading toward bridge and on the south side of river on South Shore Road and on Reid Road for the two residences located there. A bunch of people are complaining: “Are all those traffic lights necessary?” “That’s why we sold our house!” It’s hard to tell if these are poor attempts at jokes or if people are really scared of traffic lights.
It felt like a slow week of news so we decided to investigate the Titos Burritos sticker out on the back of the stop sign by the Wanakena Sign. Turns out Tito’s Burritos is a New Jersey chain boasting burritos (duh) and wings. Why not?
Cranberry Lake’s HUB has their PUBLIC DOCK in place at the old church. If you’re out on Cranberry Lake you moor your boat at the dock while you stroll down the strip. Maybe visit the library and museum when it opens? Please wipe the Cranberries off your boots before going into a business.
Stone Manor Diner and Motel in Cranberry Lake, Lakeside General Store in Cranberry Lake, UB’s Mercantile in Oswegatchie, Todd Hardware, Adirondack Pharmacy and Circle K in Star Lake, Mountain Gate Redemption near Benson Mines, and Sevey Point at Sevey Corner remain open for business in one way or another (open, take out, pick up, drop off, etc…). Post Offices are open too (Thanks, Mary!)
Duck Decoy and MORE showroom open for pop-ins. “Showroom FILLED” 481 Tooly Pond Rd, Cranberry Lake – 315-848-4223
Always beautiful photography at the Wanakena Tracks facebook page.
The Clifton Community Library in Cranberry Lake hosts via Facebook Live bedtime stories most nights read aloud by Ms. Kate the Librarian!
Hillside Diner in Oswegatchie, Twin Lakes and Coffee Fever in Star remain temporarily closed.
Todd Hardware in Star Lake and the Star Lake Golf Course are BOTH hiring! Lumber yard help and Club house attendants. Sound like pretty sweet gigs.
Kim’s Lost Dog Report: There are currently NO lost dogs in Wanakena. This rather large frog was spotted crossing the road, though. Lost? Probably not. It made a very large squishy noise as it was peacefully tapped-on-the-butt-booted and hopped away in the direction of off the asphalt.
All for now!
