Dryden Veterans Memorial Home robbed

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports that the Dryden Veterans Memorial Home was robbed last weekend. Thieves broke into a video lottery machine and an empty safe, and cut phone lines.

Farm disaster aid is available for farmers whose crops were damaged by high winds and rain last month. Applications are available at the Farm Service Agency offices in Tompkins and Cortland counties.

On the opinion page, Peter Harriott of Dryden writes about emissions and how to control them. The editorial blasts New York State for grabbing $22.8 million in fines from town governments. There's also a guest column by Stacey Crawford of Better Housing for Tompkins County, celebrating their 200th closing on a house and their default rate of under 2%.
