SANE planning, assessment deadlock

This week's Dryden Town Talk takes a look at planning for "the top secret party known as the Senior All Night Extravaganza 2006, also known as SANE. This event is an adult-chaperoned post-graduation environment for safe celebrating," which will be held high school graduation night. Fund-raising is underway, with a "Retro Dance" to be held February 8th.

There's an article on a former substitute teacher pleading guilty to a felony child pornography charge. He'd taught at the Dryden, Ithaca, Groton, Lansing, Southern Cayuga, and Moravia districts.

The County Legislature deadlocked 7-7 on a vote to change assessment to a three-year cycle. Dryden County Legislator Martha Robertson voted for it, while Mike Hattery and Duane Randall opposed it. Robertson and Hattery were appointed as legislative representatives to the Tompkins County Industrial Development Agency.

Also on the industrial development front, odds look better for Tompkins County getting an Empire Zone, which would include parcels at the 13/366 intersection and north of the Village of Dryden.

The Journal's editorial looks at the need for more Gadabout volunteer drivers.
