Chicks Ride over Dryden

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports on Saturday's Chicks Ride for Breast Cancer event, sponsored by the Dryden-Caroline Drifters snowmobile club, based at the VFW, and sponsored by a number of businesses including Googer's Coffee Shop, Stinky's Tank Service, J&B Stables, Shear Vision Hair Salon, and The Poor Shots. The ride benefits the Ithaca Breast Cancer Alliance.

Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton has a guest column in which she takes a close look at this year's budget battle in Albany. In particular, she lists the amount of school aid local districts stand to lose under Pataki's budget: $73,382 for Dryden and $883,717 for Ithaca.

If you've ever wished Dryden was more medieval, you may have neighbors who feel similarly, as a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) has grown in Cortland, or, as they prefer to call it, "The Incipient Shire of Courtlandtslot". There's also a group in Ithaca. Hopefully they won't feud over Dryden.
