School budgets pass; disc golf at TC3

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports that every school budget in the county except Lansing's passed yesterday. In Dryden, Jeff Bradley, Brian June, and Brad Rauch were elected to the school board unopposed, while in Ithaca, Carol Warshawsky, Deboran O'Connor, and Jay True were elected.

TC3 now has a frisbee golf course, The 18-hole course takes about two hours to play, as players move from basket to basket. It's the first 18-hole course in the area. At the end of September, the course will host the New York State Disc Golf Championship.

Briefly in Tompkins reports on the TC3 graduation speaker. Alumnus, television production teacher, and comedy writer Dan Devlen will speak at Thursday night's ceremonies.

In county news, the legislature set a 2.7% tax levy increase as its budget goal this year, while a state audit of Industrial Development Agencies found flaws, including in Tompkins. (The full report is available (413KB PDF).)
