Exploring the Sheriff's Race

This morning's Ithaca Journal looks at the race for Tompkins County Sheriff, profiling Tim Little, Peter Meskill, and Brian Robison. Robison is also noted in Briefly in Tompkins for declaring that Dryden resident Bill Finnerty would be his undersheriff if he is elected.

In Darts and Laurels, a number of local emergency service providers get a thank-you:

LAUREL: From Cathy Wood to the Varna Rescue Squad, the Tompkins County Sheriffs, the Dryden Ambulance Team, the off-duty Paramedic from Bangs Ambulance, everyone I came in contact with at the Cayuga Medical Center Emergency Room and my co-workers at The Strebel Planning Group. Words cannot express my appreciation and gratitude for coming to my rescue after being stranded in the woods for more than six hours because I had fallen, fractured my knee and could not walk. The kindness, consideration and expertise that everyone involved showed during and after my rescue enabled me to keep my spirits up and positive during the whole ordeal. Thank you all so much. I am extremely grateful for people like all of you who are willing to go above and beyond to help others in need. It was also brought to my attention, again, that my co-workers and I don't just work together. We're a family who cares very much about each other.

(Friday's editorial looked at ways TCAT is trying to become more useful to riders, especially low-income riders.)
