Dryden schools challenges

This morning's Ithaca Journal visits last night's Dryden school board meeting, and reports on the hiring of a new special education teacher, dress code changes, and construction at the elementary schools.

Quick reponse to a Dryden hunting accident earned DEC officer Jim Milewski Kiwanis' Frank Hammer Officer of the Month award.

In county news, a truck of aid from Tompkins County reached Gulfport, Mississippi yesterday, and Cornell, the state, and the county are putting together a nanotechnology fund to encourage business in the area.

Today is a primary election day. The only race in Dryden is for the District 9 County Legislator seat that the northeast corner of Dryden shares with Groton and Lansing. If you're a Republican who lives north and east of Malloryville Road, stop by the Dryden Fire Hall (map) and cast your ballot.
