Canoes tip in Fall Creek

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports on a frightening canoe trip down Fall Creek that left four people with hypothermia. The Varna and Dryden fire departments as well as New York State Troopers and Cornell's Environmental Health and Safety Office responded to an area near the Freese Road bridge after two canoes tipped their riders into extremely cold waters.

The Ithaca schools will be discussing school start times and possibly middle-school redistricting at tomorrow's 7:00pm meeting at the administration building (map).

There's a broad article on how to improve upstate New York's economic and demographic fortunes, worth considering even though Dryden and Tompkins County generally appear to be growing now.
