Helping a family

This morning's Ithaca Journal has an extensive article on Saturday's Project Dryden Child benefit, which raised around $10,000 for the family of children abused by a babysitter in January. It sounds like it was quite an event, with all kinds of people donating their time and energy as well as their cash. The children were there, especially enjoying the fire trucks.

There's also an article on Tompkins County's Comprehensive Emergency Plan, focusing on its availability to the public. It sounds like Lee Shurtleff, the county director of emergency planning, was happy to talk about it.
