Golf course up for auction Friday

A letter in today's Ithaca Journal from Town Supervisor Steve Trumbull says that the Lakeview Golf Course is up for auction and the town still has hope:

that the Town of Dryden and the new owners of the golf course can work together to expand recreational opportunities that the area would offer in addition to golf.

The auction will be Friday, at 10:00am, at the Tompkins County Courthouse. The town had previously discussed buying the course itself.

TC3's Childcare Center received an award and $1,000 grant yesterday from the Community Foundation of Tompkins County.

Cornell Cooperative Extension will be hosting a "Camp Night" to discuss camping with 4-H. The meeting will be held at at 4-H Acres (map) tonight from 7:00pm to 8:30pm.

The Ithaca school district still has an impasse in negotiations with its service employees. The Journal's editorial encourages Ithaca and other districts to set later start times for schools.

The Slaterville Springs Volunteer Fire Company, which serves the Bethel Grove area, is profiled and there's mention of a steak dinner they're holding on Saturday.

Also just outside of Dryden, the Tompkins County Sheriff's Department will be having a free child safety seat inspection on Saturday, March 12th from 9:00am to 1:00pm at the airport's Crash, Fire and Rescue building (map).
