Wetlands; Victorian Winter Festival

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports that complications involving wetlands at the proposed Town Hall site are likely to delay construction. The town has already worked around the largest wetland, but other patches in the property are causing problems. Environmental Planner Dan Kwasnowski hopes to address the issues and also incorporate them into a stormwater management plan.

Cathy Wakeman's Dryden Town Talk reports on the plans for the Victorian Winter Festival, which will expand to two days, December 2nd and 3rd, this year. On the 2nd, businesses will have an open house from 3:00pm to 7:00pm, including a craft fair at the Candlelight Inn. Music will start at the Village Green at 5:00pm, leading to the tree-lighting at 7:00pm with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Saturday will have Horse and Wagon history tours presented by the Dryden Town Historical Society, as well as Santa's Workshop at Dryden Elementary and a reception at Neptune Hose Company from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.

Wakeman also notes tomorrow's Thanksgiving dinner at the Freeville United Methodist Church.

Briefly in Dryden is only in the print edition, noting the Dryden Veterans Memorial Home's military gift box project and the TC3 alumni group's upcoming New York City trip December 3rd.

There's some mildly good news about natural gas supplies and prices in New York State as we head into winter.
