Village candidate perspectives

I just got this past week's Dryden Courier, and should cover it while it's still available. It's also extra-appropriate today because it includes candidate questions and reponses for the Village of Dryden candidates. Polls will be open from noon to 9:00pm at the the Dryden Village Hall (map) and the Freeville Village Hall, although the Courier doesn't cover Freeville's uncontested races.

Dryden Republicans Mayor Reba Taylor and Village Trustee Bob Witty present their views in the Courier, as does Democratic Village Trustee candidate Jerry Carbo. Republican Village Trustee Mark Strom isn't in there.

On the front page, the Courier covers Dryden High School's upcoming production of Bye, Bye, Birdie, which they will present on March 17th, 18th, and 19th (this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday) at 7:00pm. There's also an article on the town's purchase of 47 acres for the new town hall and other possibilities.

Harry Weldon starts his Anecdotes and Brevities column at the Dryden History House, where he receives a phone call about Finger Lakes history.

In sports, the Courier covers awards given to Dryden winter athletes, and names the Finger Lakes Newspapers Wrestling All-Star Team. Mario Clarke and Rex Hollenbeck are named to the team as Dryden students, but it mentions that there are three members from Dryden. I'm guessing Jared Barnes, whose school isn't named, might be the third.
