Letter to the editor: Cornwall farm was very active just two decades ago

I am writing to the comments made by Cornwall Fire Chief Rheaume about the fire at the farm on Parkhill Road in Cornwall. In a WCAX interview Chief Rheaume said: “This probably way back in its days was a working farm.” Probably way back! Well, my parents ran Wawayanda farm and Morgan horses for over 30 years, selling the farm in 1996. Our horses won championships and were sold in Great Britain, Australia and all around America. We put up hay, cut saw timber and cedar posts among other farm things. It does not feel like 20 years qualifies as “way back.”
My recommendation for Chief Rheaume is that if you feel compelled to comment on something you don’t know about a closed mouth gathers no foot.
