Robo-polling Dryden?

This morning's Ithaca Journal looks at automated polling techniques being used in the Congressional race and questions about the validity of data collected by touch-tone keypad.

In the print edition, Frank Row of Dryden is pictured at the top of a story on cooperation between Lakeside and Hospicare.

There's a piece on a suspension program at BOCES currently used by both the Ithaca and Dryden school districts.

Town Briefs lists a Senior Dinner hosted by the Dryden Senior Citizens this coming Monday, October 23rd, at Neptune Hose Company. Seating starts at 11:30am, with the meal at 12:15pm. It costs $5 for members and $6.50 for non-members.

On the opinion page, the Journal chides the County Legislature for missing their budget goal - not that they suggest any actual cuts, of course. The candidates for the 125th Assembly seat take on the death penalty. Democratic Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton argues that the death penalty is wrong, opting instead for life-without-parole, while Republican challenger Jim Rohan argues that the death penalty is a deterrent.
