George Junior agreement; legislator jailed for weekend

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports that County Legislator George Totman has pleaded guilty to DWI and been sentenced to a weekend in jail, a $750 fine, a one-year conditional discharge, and a one-year revocation of his driver's license. (Update: Or not. The Journal corrects this to "one weekend in jail and a six month conditional discharge.")

The Journal also reports on the multi-year contract approved by George Junior Republic workers after years of often difficult negotiations.

Just to the west, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology is providing information on the ivory-billed woodpecker, including a series of steps to determine if a sighting is the ivory-billed rather than the pileated woodpecker.

The editorial page is devoted to negotiations between the Ithaca City School District and its employees.
