School board appointee, Town Hall update

The Feburary 15th issue of the Dryden Courier talks with newly appointed Dryden School Board member Jeff Bradley about returning to the board he served on for twelve years after a three-year break. There's a picture of the Etna Chocolate Festival on the cover, as well as an article looking at the plans for building the new Town Hall.

Inside, there's an article on Beyond Measure, the Dryden High School a cappella group, which has again been named one of the top 20 high school a cappella groups. Their performance of "Where is the love?" will appear on a Best of High School A Cappella CD to be released later this spring. There's also a piece on Carlton Manzano of Freeville, whose landscape paintings are on display and for sale at the Ulysses Library in Trumansburg.

There's a profile of new County Legislator Duane "Tyke" Randall, who represents Groton plus the eastern edge of Lansing and the northeastern corner of Dryden.

In sports, Paul Gangarossa was looking forward to a possible Dryden-Lansing girls basketball game, but the seedings that came out didn't include it in the end. There's a photo of Dryden wrestler Rex Hollenbeck, and mention of IAC all-star swimmers Steve Rugg, Miles Merwin, and Devin Perkins of Dryden.

An article on the Boys and Girls Age Group track meet at Cornell notes that Dryden's Megan Stuttle won the girls' long jump and Taylon Allmendiner won the boys' triple jump. Stuttle is one of the paper's Athletes of the Week for her victory and her strong performance this season.
