Ithaca schools find outside funding

It's a quiet day for Dryden news, but the Journal has a few stories that affect parts of Dryden.

The Ithaca Public Education Initiative (IPEI) reports having raised $94,917 to support programs in the Ithaca City School District. You can see more about them at the IPEI web site. (The Dryden distirct has a similar organization, the Dryden Youth Opportunity Fund.)

The Journal has a listing of offices and services closing for today's Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

On the opinion page, the Journal's editorial contemplates Martin Luther King Day. Guest columnist Sue Kirby writes a help wanted for the County Legislature's 2005 elections:

Help Wanted: 15 part-time positions opening on Jan. 1, 2006 for members of the Tompkins County Legislature. Desire to serve the public is a must. You must be at least 18 years old, a United States citizen and reside in the district in which you want to run. Time commitment is eight to 10 hours during the workweek and 15-20 hours doing homework at night, reading or going to meetings. To be a strong legislator, you need to be able to stand up for what is right, in your eyes. Pay is $17,000 to start.

This coming November, all seats in the Tompkins County Legislature are up for election.
