Ellis Hollow fair, ICSD redistricting

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports on the Ellis Hollow Fair, saying:

As it has for more than a half century, the second Saturday in September brought legions of locals to the annual fair, with its booths, games and other traditional activities.

The Freeville Harvest Festival is mentioned in an article on remembrances of 9/11.

The Ithaca City School District is getting ready to redraw elementary school district lines, which could affect Dryden. When we bought our house, I was constantly amused by listings which described it as being in Cayuga Heights because kids in my neighborhood go to that elementary school. It matters for far more than real estate, though.

In news affecting the county, the sole carrier at Tompkins County Airport, US Airways, is in bankruptcy again. The airline threatened liquidation earlier this month, but so far this appears to at least keep open the possibility of reorganization.
