The Dryden news in this morning's Ithaca Journal all seems to gravitate toward Ithaca somehow.
County Legislator Martha Robertson is quoted in her role as a member of the Tompkins County Industrial Agency Board about a moratorium on applications for tax abatements under the density policy in downtown Ithaca. The moratorium is part of a timetable for determining the future of that density policy, which was designed to encourage more and denser development in the heart of the city.
Students in the Ithaca schools, including southwestern Dryden will no longer be allowed to wear the confederate flag after it has been the source of disputes among students.
On the opinion page, former County Legislature candidate W. David Restey writes to complain about Congressman Maurice Hinchey's car rentals. Unless he's moved recently, Restey is a Dryden resident, but listed as Ithaca. (So was Jason Leifer earlier this week.) Also, Hinchey's district includes Ithaca, but not Dryden.Posted by simon at April 8, 2006 8:25 AM in Ithaca Journal , politics (local) , politics (national) , schools (Ithaca)
