This morning's Journal features the Dryden High School graduation, complete with James Bond, a student cutting a teacher's hair, squirreliness, and rocks.

There are also college graduates, college news, and Dean's List reports.

A couple separated for decades will be marrying at the George Junior Republic chapeltoday. It's a a fascinating story on many levels, including the mix of Ithaca, Cortland, and Freeville in the couple's lives.

The New York State Special Commission on the Future of the New York State Courts will be in Ithaca from 10:00am to 5:00pm on Tuesday. This may sound a bit obscure, but there's been lots of discussion of possible change to the village and town court systems. This could be a government hearing with local results down the road.

Finally, the Journal has two articles on the 1972 Agnes flood, which was 35 years ago today. Growing up in Corning, the flood's devastation was a constant subject of conversation. Tompkins County escaped the worst of the storm, though if I remember right, the railroad line from Freeville to East Ithaca closed in this period, I think because of damage. (If anyone knows on that one, let me know in comments!)
