Dryden, Etna residents offer New Orleans residents shelter

I didn't get to look at yesterday's Ithaca Journal until today, and it has two stories I'd definitely like to highlight. One is about Linda Lavine welcoming former Ithacan Rona King into her house after her house in New Orleans was flooded, and another is about Etna resident May Lovelace, who's offered a space in her home to those in need. Just across the town line, the Cornell Vet School is sending aid for pets, and there's also a truck of food going from Tompkins County to the Gulf Coast.

In politics, the Journal talks to incumbent County Legislator George Totman and his challenger Duane 'Tyke' Randall, who will face off in the Republican primary Tuesday in a district that includes Groton, eastern Lansing, and northeastern Dryden.

On the opinion page, a laurel from the History Center thanks those who helped make their Eight Square Schoolhouse day possible. There's also a dart to someone who took a vast quanity of cow manure from Cornell's community pile on Game Farm Road.
