Dryden schools have extra facilities money

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports that the Dryden Central School District has extra funding available for facilities work, which will allow them to get extra state aid for facilities upgrades without a property tax increase.

The Journal now says that December 2006 was only the second-warmest December on record, with 1891 being warmer. It's hard to tell, however, what their clarification about an old weather station being on the roof of a building means. It reads to me like much of that warmth may have come from the building, which isn't a problem at the current Game Farm Road station, but maybe they adjusted the reading?

On the opinion page, the Journal's editorial reflects on finding child care after the abuse last week. Dryden residents Art Berkey and Henry Kramer write about their hopes for how a planned Ithaca schools bond resolution will be presented. Nancy Suci of Dryden writes to propose a Martin Luther King Peace Center, honoring the civil rights leader with ongoing work as well as a named place.
