Boxes of Joy

Today's Ithaca Journal has a picture of children packing gifts at the Bethel Grove Bible Church for the Operation Christmas Child program of Samaritan's Purse.

An Etna resident, Susan Morse, and her dogs Kiss and Whisper, are noted in K-9 news qualifying for and completing dog obedience titles.

Near Dryden, the Journal reports on the progress of Caroline's planning process, which like Dryden's includes future land use, concern about preserving agriculture, encouraging small business, improving housing conditions, and creating trails.

There's a piece on how enthusiasm for reform in Albany is largely public relations for resistance to reform in Albany, citing the Senate report I discussed yesterday.

On the opinion page, the Journal praises the coming of a Tompkins County prescription discount card for the uninsured, while Jay Gallagher warns that creating a unicameral legislature would be a mistake for upstate. Gallagher cites Assembly Democrat Richard Brodsky as supporting it, but it's worth noting that Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno also keeps talking about it.
