Nearby trains

Wednesdays are usually pretty busy days for Dryden in the Ithaca Journal because of the Our Towns section, but this week's news there is mostly of Groton and Caroline. There is a piece on trains in Caroline, including some discussion of the Besemer station, right near the Dryden-Caroline boundary.

There is a Briefly in Dryden section, which lists continued openings on the Town of Dryden's Conservation Board, Youth Commission, and Zoning Board of Appeals. It also notes that registration is open at the Town Recreation Department for wrestling for ages 5 to 14 and volleyball for grades 4 to 6.

The front page leads with an article about the arrest of 21 people in Tompkins and Cortland counties for cocaine trafficking, and I guess we'll find out in the future if any of them were based in Dryden.

The Ithaca City School District held a session on redistricting, and is apparently using computer models to calculate student populations and bus traffic in different areas as part of the process.

The Tompkins County Municipal Officers Association held a discussion about forms of county government that talked about county executives and other possible structures. I tried to go to this at its original date, September 28th, but it was cancelled when I got there, and I don't think I saw any notices for this date.
