Drydenettes, Corvettes

Cathy Wakeman's Dryden Town Talk looks at schoolgirls of yesteryear, the Drydenettes, a group of female Dryden High School alumnae who will be having a reunion July 30th. (If female alums would like to make a reservation to join the fun, please contact Elsie Gutchess at 844-5504.) She also notes a session on starting your own home day care business to be held at Holy Cross Church on George Road from 6:30pm to 8:30pm on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Briefly in Dryden lists the Generations Corvette Club's plans to be at Stafford Chevrolet's Motorama this Saturday from 10am to 3pm, showing off cars and having a chicken barbecue. Police, Neptune Hose Company, and NYSEG will also be there with exhibits. There's also a notice about a reunion for the Dryden High School classes of 1964 and 1965 to be held at the Dryden VFW at 6:00pm on Friday, August 5th, with additional events Saturday and Sunday.

In county news, the legislature restructured the Planning Commissioner, Public Works Commissioner, and Deputy Administrator jobs, combining the first two and planning for the last to become a full-time job. They also approved a land transfer tax and didn't pass a resolution on tobacco bonds. Unfortunately, the Journal doesn't provide a breakdown of who voted how on these resolutions.

A Freeville man was charged with forcible touching and endangering the welfare of a child.

On the opinion page, the Journal encourages people to give blood and Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton writes a review of the past legislative session, calling it "one of the most productive in decades."

There's also an article on Voice-over-IP and 911 issues that's worth reading if you're considering switching your phone to run over the Internet.
