Influential student

This week's Dryden Courier leads with an article profiling Corey Earle, a Dryden High graduate just listed as a member of the "25 most influential Cornellians". Earle is president of the Glee Club, president of Quill and Dagger, and writer of a bi-weekly column on Cornell history for the Cornell Daily Sun.

They also report on the newest Dryden School Board member, Perry Dewey, appointed to replace Amanda Kittelberger until the May election. The article discusses the EXCEL money and whether it could figure into security upgrades planned a few years ago. The front page photo is of the Dryden Tech Prep class, at a "Plowing Your Way to Success" event at TC3.

The "This Month in History" feature inside the cover is expanded, with more news from Dryden than I feel comfortable reprinting here!

The editorial calls for holiday giving, citing Better Housing for Tompkins County, Foodnet, The Learning Web, the Community Dispute Resolution Center, the Women's Community Center, and the Greater Ithaca Activities Center as places to give.

There's all kinds of activity in the Dryden Police log.

In his Inside Dryden column, Matt Cooper catches up on holiday concerts, marvels at the metalwork in Southworth Library, and visits the Dryden Town Historical Society.

In sports, there's a piece on Dryden wrestler Anthony Jerome, who just won his hundredth match, and a report on Dryden's basketball season, with the boys climbing to 3-1 with a win over Moravia and the girls falling to 3-2.
