Wilkinson fights back

The only Dryden-related item in today's Ithaca Journal is in Briefly in Tompkins, which notes that the Dryden Senior Citizens will be holding their fund-raising bazaar on Saturday from 9:00am to 2:00pm at the Dryden Fire Hall (map).

The race for District Attorney looks set to get ugly, as incumbent George Dentes made claims about challenger Gwen Wilkinson's involvement in a child abuse case in his column yesterday. Wilkinson held a press conference yesterday to refute those claims and press further on findings of Dentes' own misconduct.

There's one key item I think the Journal got wrong. They write that "The civil case is pending," while Wilkinson's press release states that "I represented DSS in negotiating the settlement in this case that ended the case prior to trial stage, and was agreed to by all parties."

There's also a report on the Ithaca High School newspaper restarting.
