Break-in at TC3 water tower

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports on an intrusion at a water tower at Tompkins-Cortland Community College. Initial testing found no contaminants, but they're waiting for further results.

The Journal has a piece on fire safety and the elderly and a piece on establishing fire escape plans.

On the opinion page, Harry Applin of Candor writes about the proposed TC3 expansion:

Contrary to critics, TC3 isn't just building a "sports center." They want to move the sporting area that is in the middle of one building into a new and more user-friendly building and then convert the current sports area into more classrooms. The school was designed for 2,000 students, yet serves over 3,000.

So the choice is educate your children so that they don't need the prison space or let them drop out and waste your money in jail. Posted by simon at December 17, 2004 8:16 AM in ,
