Dryden graduation, state legislation (or not)

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports on Saturday's Dryden High School graduation ceremony, highlighting speeches by 1970 graduate Tim Tyson, valedictorian Emily Rivest, and salutatorian Daniel Perkins, as well as a farewell from retiring Superintendent Patricia Archambault.

The editorial page is dominated by last week's conclusion of an unproductive state legislative session, including an editorial, a guest column from a Newfield resident arrested in civil disobedience last week, analysis of the brighter side of their inaction, and a letter from a Town of Ithaca resident encouraging a return of legislators to the private sector. Nothing there is explicitly from Dryden, but the state logjam echoes through our taxes and our politics, with little sign of likely change.

Update: Missed one. Cornell will be showing off the Freeville Organic Research Farm from 5-8pm on August 3rd.
