Freeville food bank reopens

This morning's Ithaca Journal (which isn't online yet) reports on the re-opening of the Freeville food bank at the Methodist Church, talking with volunteers, supporters, and visitors.

There's also an article on an accident that jammed up Route 13 between Lower Creek Road and Route 366 last night. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

In fun news, the Etna Community Association's 6th Annual Chocolate Festival will be this Saturday from 10:30am to noon. I visited it last year, and had a great (and delicious) time, There's also notice of planning for the 1996 Dryden High School reunion, and there will be a senior services forum on Thursday, January 12th from 11:00am to 3:00pm at Dryden Fire Hall.

The county legislature will be voting next week on a possible shift to a three-year assessment cycle. The Journal quotes Joe Riggins of Freeville as opposing the move.

There's also a piece on the Ithaca School's initial budget projections, which currently show a 6.4% spending increase and an 8.8% tax levy increase.
