Hunting accident claims life

This morning's Ithaca Journal brings sad news: two brothers went turkey hunting in Dryden and one died of a gunshot wound. Michael and James Carter of Clover, South Carolina were hunting yesterday along Mott Road, and Michael somehow shot James in the back. The DEC police are investigating, and Town Supervisor Steve Trumbull is quoted extensively in the article about proper turkey hunting procedure.

A Dryden resident, Craig Evans of Ellis Hollow Road, is profiled among the six candidates for three Ithaca school board seats.

Tompkins County will be having a special presentation on the proposed emergency communications network today at 4:30pm at the Old Jail (map).

The March 2005 County Health Report lists a number of violations in Dryden, mostly in water systems.

The Health Department will also be sponsoring a free rabies clinic on Thursday, May 12th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the Dryden Fire Hall (map).
