The Our Towns section of today's Ithaca Journal and the paper generally have lots about Dryden today, but I'll start with the most fun article, about a Corgi at a house just up the hill from mine who won the American Kennel Club's Master Agility Championship. Cecilia Madsen and her dog Sage won the award on June 25th, and perhaps Speck, a pup who's just arrived, will follow in Sage's footsteps.
Cathy Wakeman's Dryden Town Talk reports on next Wednesday night's fundraiser basketball game pitting the Dryden Stars against the Harlem Wizards, as well as next summer's Class of 1956 Dryden High School reunion, for which planning is getting underway. For questions on the basketball game, call Diane Smith at 844-8694, ext. 9243; for questions on the reunion, call Nancy Couch at 844-4092.
There was also a rollover accident at the intersection of Route 13 with Johnson and Yellow Barn Roads yesterday that thankfully caused only minor injuries.
On the opinion page, Murray Cohen of Dryden continues a recent trend of quoting scripture in letters, worried that "President Bush is giving new meaning to Jesus' remark: "To those who have, more will be given." (Matthew 25)".
There's also an article on the twenty minutes of reading before school that's become part of the Dryden School District's day, and it includes a list of what some administrators are reading.Posted by simon at September 28, 2005 12:30 PM in Ithaca Journal , pets , roads, traffic, and transit , schools (Dryden)
