Fishing, opinions

This morning's Ithaca Journal has a picture of nine-year-old Brandon Elia fishing at Dryden Lake as part of the Wal-Mart Kids All American Fishing Derby that was held Saturday.

The State Police seem to have been busy along Dryden's borders, making DWI arrests on 34B and 13.

The opinion page carries two letters that are very similar to letters published in the Dryden Courier earlier this month. Gabriel and Penelope Carpenter of Dryden suggest that "We are on the verge of bringing to fulfillment Huxley's 'Brave New World,' in which the family is irrelevant, parents do not exist, and the purpose of human life is to achieve a blind euphoria, no matter the cost."

Laurie Fitzgibbons of Freeville asks "Why is a man, who has never been a superintendent of schools anywhere, being paid more than a woman who had been a superintendent for 13 years, 5 of them in Dryden?"
