Passing schoolbuses; school assault

There's not a lot of Dryden news in this morning's Journal. Dryden school bus driver Becky Colbert writes about a large problem on her route along Route 13 from Irish Settlement Road to Pinckney Road. Motorists keep driving through her red lights and stop signs, endangering the children who need to cross the road to get home.

The Monitor repeats an item from yesterday about a Mineah Road resident being arrested on charges of selling crack cocaine, and includes a new item from Dryden High School, where on Tuesday:

A student was escorted to the high school office after reporting that another unknown student pushed him down and struck him with a belt three times in the back. Red, raised welts remained on the student's back. The incident occurred in the G wing of the high school.

Police have two suspects who have not yet been identified. The person with the belt was described as a 6-foot, white male wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. Any person with information should contact the New York State Police at 347-4440.

Update: I forgot to include this story on TCAT and its unions, which could potentially create problems for TCAT service around Dryden if it isn't resolved.
