Fire on Hanshaw Road; religion and public service

Last night at 7:20pm, firefighters responded to a call of a burning mobile home, which they were not able to save. Medical oxygen tanks createdan additional hazard. Earlier in the day, the county had a major malfunction in its microwave emergency communications system, though no "major emergencies" happened while it was down.

Today's Ithaca Journal also has a guest column from Charles DeMotte of Dryden which examines the relationship between religious beliefs and public life, and particularly the President's religious rhetoric of the last few years.
