Learning to ride the bus

Today's Ithaca Journal includes a story about Freeville Elementary School students learning about bus-riding etiquette while also getting a dose of local history and nature and visiting a farm. Local artist Pam Beck created the characters of frog Freeville Freddy, Betsy Butterfly, Buddy Beaver, and Harriet Heron. Students got to interact with these characters on a special excursion through the town.

There will be a tire collection day on October 16th at the Dryden Highway Department (map). The fee is $1 per tire, with no tractor tires allowed, and any tires larger than a 48-inch diameter need to be cut in half.

The Journal's editorial examines our broken state government's ever-more plodding pace, most recently delays in the budget and budget reform bills in the New York State Senate.
