They'll also have a chicken barbecue at Clark's starting at 3:30pm and an open house at 5:30pm at the former Charlie's Diner, 1 West Main Street on the four corners intersection in Dryden. The second, for Keith and Nancy Yeager, to help them with injuries sustained in an accident on Route 13 in front of their house, wil be from 5:00pm to 10:00pm on November 2nd at the Dryden VFW. Tickets are $25 at the door, $20 in advance.
On the opinion page, there are two letters supporting Jason Leifer for Town Justice. Robert Stolp of Ithaca praises Judge Valentinelli, the Dryden Town Justice who isn't up for re-election this year, and says that "it is my sincere belief that Jason should join Judge Valentinelli in providing the Town of Dryden with the justice people expect and deserve." County Legislator Martha Robertson of Dryden writes to support Leifer, because he "is passionate about the law."Posted by simon at October 24, 2007 8:33 AM in Ithaca Journal , politics (local)
