Events, ICSD special education

Today's Ithaca Journal Our Towns section mostly focuses on the other towns that share Wednesday, but the Briefly in Dryden section mentions two upcoming events:

  • TC3 will be holding Alumni Fun Day on February 5th, and free tickets are available to alumni who register by January 28th. "Mad Science: Marvels in Motion" will start the day with a collection of contraptions, and sports events and refreshments will be happening in the afternoon.
  • The Dryden-Caroline Drifters Snowmobile Club will be holding a Second Annual Breast Cancer Ride for Research on February 26th. The 60-mile all-girls ride will raise money for the Ithaca Breast Cancer Alliance.

The Monitor includes the headline "Ithaca man charged with Dryden burglary," but it sounds more like violating a protection order and assault.

The Journal continues its reporting on a consultants' review of Ithaca City School District special education programs, and includes an article looking at how the special education program runs.

The airport is contemplating hiring a consultant as it faces the challenge of US Airways' decline.

The Journal lists local tsunami relief efforts.

Looking beyond the Journal, today's New York Times (registration required) reports on an agreement with power plant operators announced by Governor Pataki and Attorney General Spitzer yesterday that will reduce emissions from many upstate coal-burning power plants. The plant nearest Dryden, AES Cayuga in Lansing, isn't mentioned, but former plant operator NYSEG, headquartered in Dryden before the plants were sold, is paying a $700,000 fine.
