Town Hall prospects; snowmobile accident

This morning's Ithaca Journal has all kinds of Dryden news. There's an article on last night's informational meeting on the Town Hall land purchase, "a 47-acre parcel adjacent to the current town hall location for $100,000 from ELM Acquisition Corporation."

Near the Dryden VFW, there was a snowmobile accident that put a Richford man in intensive care. Getting to the accident scene was a challenge:

State police requested the Tompkins County Sheriff's Office Snowmobile Patrol to transport Marsh from the scene. Dryden firefighters told troopers they were concerned about the possibility for hypothermia and frost bite. An unidentified snowmobiler, who was at the VFW post, transported emergency personnel to the accident site, said state police.

Reporter Jennie Daley looks at Town Supervisor Steve Trumbull's monthly changes of his answering machine message, which go far beyond the usual "please leave a message" with poetry and songs. The Journal even has the February and March messages available online as MP3 files.

Briefly in Tompkins and Today's Events both list a spaghetti dinner tonight from 4:30pm to 7:30pm at Neptune Hose Company (map). It's "sponsored by Tompkins County 4-H Cultural Exchange Club to raise money to host 4-H friends from Larimer County, Colo. next summer."

A Freeville resident was involved in an accident in Ithaca after a bicyclist fell.
