Vietnam politics

It's another quiet day for Dryden news. The only Dryden-specific item in today's Ithaca Journal is a letter from Dryden resident Steve Scott defending President Bush on both his recent statements about John Kerry's service in Vietnam and Bush's service in the National Guard.

Next door in Caroline, the town is raising money to pay for its use of wind-generated power. Rather than raising taxes, they're raising the money through contributions. (I'm not certain, but I think the state requires the town to pay the lowest possible rate for a commodity, and doesn't consider coal-generated electricity and wind-generated electricity different things. That makes towns look outside the tax base if they want cleaner power.)
