Smoking, ATVs, Recreation Partnership

This morning's Ithaca Journal doesn't have a lot of news specifically about Dryden, but there's a fair amount that applies to Dryden.

County Legislator Mike Lane is quoted asking "How do you weigh the employee health risks vs. the economic loss of any applicants?" in an article on the Ithaca Bowl-O-Drome's request for a smoking waiver.

There are also two articles on calls for restrictions on ATV use, one covering it from the state perspective and another looking at it more locally, though the comments come from places south of Dryden.

On the opinion page, Helen May of Dryden writes regarding the new Ithaca police chief that "I would not blame the officers if there was a mass exodus."

Ithaca Town Supervisor Catherine Valentino writes a guest column on the future of the Recreation Partnership, an issue that is coming up in Dryden. (There will be a presentation on the Recreation Partnership at this Thursday's Town Board meeting.)

Also, I missed mentioning yesterday's editorial on the need for improvement to the intersection of Brown Road and Route 13. While just outside of the Town of Dryden, it's an intersection many Dryden residents encounter on their way to Lansing or Ithaca.
