Rummage and craft sale Saturday

This morning's Ithaca Journal includes Briefly in Dryden, which announces the Dryden National Junior Honor Society's rummage and craft sale, which will be held this Saturday from 9:00am to 1:00pm in the Dryden Middle School cafeteria.

Briefly in Dryden also mentions that Beyondmeasure, the Dryden High School a cappella group, was honored again as one of the best 20 high school a cappella groups. There's a list of members for 2004/2005, the group being honored, and for 2005/2006, the current members.

The county took a big step toward implementing the new public safety communication network, authorizing an $8 million lease. It's also budget season in the Ithaca City School District, with Superintendent Judith Pastel submitting two budget proposals.

In state news, Senate Democrats asked for accounting of where the governor's, Senate's, and Assembly's borrowed money actually goes. Governor Pataki's spokesman wasn't interested in publishing the information,and changed the subject to the legislature's lack of participation in the Freedom of Information Law. While I'd like to see the legislature under FOIL, it's depressing to see that the Governor's office is apparently happy to have quiet slush funds rolling around. The Syracuse Post-Standard had a great exploration of these funds in 2004, but it shouldn't require investigative reporting to figure out where the government is allocating this money.
