Art competition, recreation

The Dryden Courier leads with an article on Dryden High School students placing at the New York Olympics of the Visual Arts. (The article is available online from the Ithaca Times.) There's a picture of students modeling a Louis XVI ball costume that took second place in Fashion Design, and an article inside that looks at the recent school board meeting, starting with the art contest.

There's also an article on the recreation survey, which goes into greater depth than my earlier coverage on transportation issues and people's general lack of awareness of the existing recreation programs - the survey found that 37% of people it spoke with didn't know Dryden had a recreation department.

There's a brief article on Dryden's school board and budget votes, which passed the budget but ousted board president Rachel Dickinson. Another school board member, Anderson Young, has been named a Distinguished Professor at SUNY Cortland.

There's an article on classes Cornell Cooperative Extension is having for prospective farmers, starting next week with classes on equipment.

The Courier's Etna-based photographer, Skip Thorne, won three awards at the New York Press Association convention, including one for a photo of a Dryden soccer game.

In sports, there are photos of the Dryden girls and boys track teams, as well as an article on their performance at the IAC championship track meet, where the boys team beat Lansing while the girls came in second.
