Library tax rejected; Harley decor

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports (in its print edition only) that the library funding referendum failed yesterday. Voters in the Ithaca City School District (which includes southwestern Dryden) rejected the proposal 3091-1679. The 17% turnout was more turnout than the last six school board elections have seen.

Fans of Harley-Davidson motorcycles will enjoy an article on Susan and Charlie McCormick and the Harley parked in their livingroom, where it's part of the decoration. It's not just decoration, of course - it also gets used regularly.

Briefly in Dryden lists Saturday's Etna Chocolate Festival, which I highly recommend after visiting last year. It'll be from 10:30am to noon at Houtz Hall (map).

Also, tonight from 6:00pm to 7:00pm, the Dryden PTO will be hosting a presentation on "The Social Life of Your Middle Schooler" at the Dryden Middle School/High School library.
