Post-9/11 preparedness

Saturday's Ithaca Journal started an article on first responder preparedness with a quote from Etna Fire Chief Thomas Lobdell, visits the McLean and Varna companies, and ends with a quote from Freeville Chief Andy Downs. It's a mixed story, with more resources available but questions about priorities and accessibility. Dryden Chief Ron Flynn is quoted in another article about the persistent volunteer shortage, as is Deputy Chief Tom Warner.

There's a more detailed than usual report on county legislative votes, something I'd like to see the Journal do regularly.

There's also a 15-day public comment period on the NYSEG delivery rate reduction the state ordered.

S & S Tree Service of Etna gets a laurel from the Finger Lakes Land Trust for donating "a huge load of wood chips for one of our trails."
