Heating aid, county budget, opinions

There's not much Dryden news in today's Journal, but there's a fair amount that applies to Dryden in some way.

The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) is starting up again for the winter, and the Tompkins County Office for the Aging is taking applications from those over 60 or on SSI or SSD.

The Journal reports that the Tompkins County tentative 2005 budget is available for review, and that a public hearing will be held on November 9th at 7pm at the Ithaca Town Hall (map). You can find the whole thing on the county's budget site.

In the same article, there's also a notice to people who have moved within the county that they should go to the polling place for their current address and vote by affidavit ballot.

There are two Dryden-related DWI incidents in The Monitor.

The Journal's editorial endorses John Kerry, and there are two letters from Dryden. John Steele of the Village of Freeville asks "Do you really feel that you can believe anything John Kerry says?" Jim Crawford of Freeville criticizes an earlier guest column on the OTB referendum and encourages people to "Vote 'no' on OTB next Tuesday, Nov. 2."
