Bringing Lakeview Golf Course back to life

This morning's Ithaca Journal looks at a group of volunteers - and donors - who have worked together to reopen Lakeview Golf Course, repairing it, running it, and paying its taxes while its long-term future remains a question. The pictures give an idea both of the work involved, and there's lots of that, and of the scenery surrounding the course. I'm sorry to have been out of town Saturday for their opening celebration.

The Journal starts their round of articles on high school graduations with an article on the plans of Ithaca graduates, as well as a list of graduates from Ithaca High School and Lehman Alternative Community School.

There's also an article on the latest Drug Court graduation, outlining how the program operates and talking to people who have participated or seen relatives participate.

There are three pieces on the opinion page about New York State government which are worth a look, even if they aren't specific to Dryden. The editorial discusses how state officials can avoid ethics investigations with a simple resignation, Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton has an update on New York's continuing delays around the Help America Vote Act, and Jay Gallagher contrasts the Legislature's press releases with its results.
