Westerling convicted

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports that Karel Westerling was convicted of kidnapping and rape yesterday, and now faces up to 25 years in prison.

An early-morning fire at Wilcox Press Friday was the result of machinery friction in a scrap paper compactor. Varna, Dryden, Cayuga Heights, Freeville, and Etna departments responded. They had the fire out in half an hour, and spent another hour looking for possible spread of the fire with thermal-imaging equipment.

Varna also responded to a dump-truck that tipped over at Lower Creek Road and Route 13 yesterday morning.

A Freeville man was charged with DWI..

The local history feature looks at the Cayugas, whose territory included western Dryden.
