Sewer monitoring to move forward

The last two weeks of the Dryden Courier have been pretty quiet, and are pleasantly calming reading after the last week of the Ithaca Journal. Of course, the Courier will probably have to catch up to those stories too.

The December 27th issue of the Courier led with an article on the Youth Commission needing new members, esecpially as long-time members Kristen Blackman and Tracey Kurtz are retiring. There's also a picture of the Southworth Library as a gingerbread house on the cover. The inside cover page asks six Dryden Elementary School students about their New Year's Resolutions.

Reporter Matt Cooper's column reflects on that resolution story, and there's a picture of playground aide Sue Shaffer wearing reindeer antlers and a nose.

In sports, there's an article on Dryden Athletic Director Ralph Boettger's efforts to address athlete behavior problems through community service, and a report on Dryden wrestling's win over Elmira's Thomas Edison High School.

The January 3rd issue leads with a report on the $124,000 the Town of Dryden is spending on monitoring flows in its Cortland Road Sewer District, which connects to the Village of Dryden wastewater treatment plant.

Matt Cooper's Inside Dryden column reflects on vandalism and grafitti at the Covenant Love Community Church, with a picture of the damaged sign. He also hopes to finally build a snowman this year. He writes briefly about the Dryden physical education teacher who resigned after an arrest in Cortland for public lewdness, and notes a blog entry on a site about arrested teachers.

In sports, there's a report on Dryden Wrestling's loss to Candor, and a 14th place finish at the Windsor Holiday Wrestling Tournament, despite some strong performances by Tony Clarke, Anthony Jerome, and Rex Hollenbeck.
