Budget overview; turkey shoot

The front page of this morning's Ithaca Journal has a picture of Mindy Sills of Dryden firing at a turkey shoot in Lansing and quotes Sills about the event:

"This is the first time I've ever done a turkey shoot," said Sills, a licensed hunter. "The pie plate is all I've been doing. I've been close, very close, but my husband has gotten five of them (turkeys)."

Sills said she was surprised she hadn't seen more women participating in the event.

"It's not something women physically can't achieve," she said. "It's absolutely possible. I really don't have an explanation for it. Maybe it's something they tried and didn't enjoy it. I've seen some wives out here as spectators."

There's also an article reviewing the Town of Dryden budget that was approved last month, noting the 0.7% spending decrease that left the town with a 4.8% property tax levy increase. It also talks briefly about the $25,000 budgeted for community center improvements.

(I've posted the full budget if you want to explore.)
