Kindergarten and Katrina

One of the many things I wanted to write about this weekend but didn't get to was the latest Dryden Courier, and I do feel I should cover it while it's still available on news stands.

Last Wednesday's issue has a picture of the Backyard Circus at the Freeville Harvest Festival. It leads with a visit to kindergarten at Dryden Elementary, looking both at the newly renovated building and at the new students. There's also an article on Dryden Central School District's efforts to help out with the disaster Hurricane Katrina caused.

Inside, there's an article on Department of Environmental Conservation Officer Jim Milewski's receiving the Officer of the Month award from Kiwanis for his quick response to a fatal hunting accident in Dryden in May. There's a brief item on TC's launch of, a resource for local businesses and non-profit organizations.

There's also a report on the Dryden school board meeting, including more detail on the board's efforts to serve two students whose need for a special education teacher seemed to get lost, as well as a new dress code.

In county news, there's an article on the proposed burn ban.

In sports, the back cover has a full-color photo of Dryden Football's Tim Finnerty making a catch at the Carrier Dome against Trumansburg, and there's also an article on it and an interior photo of Dryden running back Abinye Smith. There's also an article on the Elmira Southside Invitational, where Dryden was playing this past weekend.
