"Tyke" Randall defeats incumbent Totman

This morning's Ithaca Journal leads with results from yesterday's primary election. The only election in Dryden was for the Republican contest for County Legislator in District 9, which included eastern Lansing, Groton, and northeastern Dryden. Challenger Duane "Tyke" Randall II defeated incumbent legislator George Totman 278-41.

On the Our Towns page, Cathy Wakeman writes about a free spaghetti dinner Neptune Hose Company will be serving the community on September 30th, with tickets available Wednesday nights (the 14th, 21st, and 28th) at the Dryden Fire Hall (map). She also reports on the many kinds of volunteers they need, and on the Dryden United Methodist Church's Katrina relief efforts.

There's also a set of pictures from last weekend's events in Ellis Hollow and Freeville, though the online version only shows Ellis Hollow.

Mysteriously, the online edition includes Briefly in Dryden, which I don't see in the print edition. It lists:

  • A can and bottle drive by Kiwanis for Hurricane Katrina relief, in the parking lot of Clark's from 9:00am to noon on Saturday, September 17th.
  • The Varna United Methodist Church will be having a chicken barbecue starting at 3:00pm this Saturday, the 17th. $7 gets you a half chicken, potato salad, baked beans, three bean salad, roll, and cake, or $4.50 gets you a chicken half alone.
  • TC3 will be hosting a tailgate party featuring Bob's BBQ on September 25th. A tour of the campus will start at 11:30am, with barbecue available around noon, and mens and womens soccer games in the afternoon.
  • The Dryden Youth Commission is still looking for a Village of Dryden resident to join them.
  • Patchwork Therapeutic Riding Center (just across the line in Groton) is looking for volunteers to help with lessons and chores.
