Horses killed in accident on 38

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports on an accident which killed two horses which wandered on to Route 38 Sunday night. The Dryden Fire Department replied, and the vehicle involved was towed away, but the people involved weren't injured.

Briefly in Dryden lists a lasagna dinner at the Varna United Methodist Church (map) at 4:00pm on Saturday, January 29th. Tompkins Cortland Community College will be having an Alumni Fun Day on February 5th, and the Lions Club (with support from the Dryden Youth Opportunity Fund) will be having a Club Dryden event for middle school students from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at Dryden Central School.

There's a picture of Tompkins County Sheriff Deputy Ryan Mayo patrolling Ellis Hollow Creek Road in an article on Caroline Town Supervisor Don Barber's call for more rural police coverage.

The Ithaca City School District Board discussed elementary redistricting with an overflow crowd. There's no mention in the article of changes for Dryden residents, but there isn't much detail. More information is (or will be) available at the District's redistricting site, though I don't see detailed presentations there yet.

At the county level, sales tax revenue has increased likely both due to new stores opening and higher utiility costs.

The Journal's editorial questions the sense of granting benefits to part-time elected officials.

Next door to Dryden, the Journal looks at the career of Welthea M. Marsh, president of the First National Bank of Groton from 1896 to 1901. The Groton Business Association will be posthumously awarding her their second annual Recognition Award in March.
