Candidate perspectives

The Dryden Courier has always done a great job of giving candidates for local office space to explain who they are and what they're hoping to accomplish, and I strongly recommend finding a copy if you haven't yet decided. The XtraMart/Sunoco on 13 usually has them, as do the Eckerd and the Mobil in the Village of Dryden. Town Board candidates David Makar and Dan Tier respond to questions from the Courier, as do Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton and Jim Rohan. They don't include the similar piece from the Sheriff's candidates, but it's available on the Ithaca Times site, as is the story in the Courier on the sheriff's race.

The front page writes of the November 10th dinner at TC3 which will induct members into Rotary International, creating a new Dryden Rotary Club. There's also a piece on a new CD from Beyond Measure, the Dryden High School a capella group. Inside, there's an article on 10-year-old Zoe Sweetland, who's preparing to perform in the Nutcracker ballet, and an announcement of Dryden Seniors' November 13th lunch meeting.

On the opinion page, there's a letter from me supporting David Makar, and Etna resident Mike Sylvia has a letter from Christa Siering of Trumansburg supporting his campaign for Congress.

Reporter Matt Cooper's "Inside Dryden" column visits the Dryden High School library, and finds a number of graphic novels.
