Abuction, rape; flying car causes fire

There's lots of Dryden news in today's Ithaca Journal, little of it good. The lead story on the front page is about an abduction and rape on Bone Plain Road yesterday, in violation of an order of protection at that. Sheriff's deputies arrested the suspect after a chase in the woods behind the airport.

There's also a report on a Sunday night accident in which a car skipped the stop sign at Mount Pleasant Road and Route 366, and became airborne, striking a house on Freese Road and catching fire. The Varna Volunteer Fire Company responded, applying foam to the burning gasoline. The car was destroyed, but the house was saved.

The editorial supports the expansion of the TC3 dormitories, saying that "Adding the dorm space is a smart move for TC3 and for Dryden."

There's also an article on a subject Dryden residents should watch, though we're not a part of it: discussion of the Town and City of Ithaca sharing services and possibly someday merging.
