All kinds of Dryden news

Today's Ithaca Journal has lots and lots of Dryden-related news.

The lead story is on the Dryden School Board's efforts to develop a new budget after the tie vote on the previous one. Developing that budget seemed difficult to start with. The board will take action June 2nd, and the second budget vote is June 22nd.

In the Our Towns section, there's a profile of 11-year-old Nick Patte, a goodwill ambassador for for the Central New York Muscular Dystrophy Association, who has had Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy since he was 22 months old.

This week's Dryden Town Talk looks at work being done at Willow Glen Cemetery, financed by an anonymous donor, and notes Saturday's Memorial Day parade.

Briefly in Dryden includes a Dryden alumni dinner June 12th, a "Support Our Troops!" motorcycle ride June 6th, the Varna United Methodist Church's chicken barbecue on June 5th, and Dryden Dairy Day on June 12th.

The print edition also includes a Community Profile of Adam Pamel, an Eagle Scout candidate raising funds and donations to provide K-2 students with school supplies.

The Auburn Citizen also has more news on the 24th Congressional District race, looking more closely at letters to the editor falsified by a volunteer for the Walrath campaign. (David Walrath is challenging incumbent Sherwood Boehlert in the Republican primary for the district, which includes Dryden.)
