Varna chief injured; ICSD budget vote today

I'm very used to seeing Natan Huffman, Chief of the Varna Volunteer Fire Company, driving around Dryden in a red pickup truck with lights. Unfortunately, on June 8th, someone seems not to have quite figured out what those lights are about, and Huffman is in the hospital with an ugly back injury after a crash on 366 near Oak Brook Drive. It's a remarkably detailed article about a remarkable guy, and I hope he can return soon. (It doesn't sound like it'll be soon at all, alas - a nine month rehabilitation is mentioned in the article.)

The vote on a second Ithaca City School District budget is today from noon to 9:00pm. Once again, Town of Dryden residents living in the Ithaca City School District have a complicated maze of places to go:

  • If you live in election district 1 or 5 (meaning you vote at Etna Fire Station in regular elections), the parts of the Ithaca district east of Baker Hill Road, you vote at Northeast Elementary School (map).

  • If you live in election district 4, which includes Varna, Hanshaw Road from Ithaca to Route 13, and the area between Game Farm and Turkey Hill Roads, you vote at the Varna Community Center (map).

  • If you live in election district 8, the south side of Ellis Hollow Road over Snyder Hill to Route 79 and Bethel Grove (and normally vote at Bethel Grove Church), you vote at the Belle Sherman Annex (map).

  • If you live in election district 9, the north side of Ellis Hollow Road, Ellis Hollow Creek, Ringwood Road, and many other smaller roads there, then you vote at Caroline Elementary School (map).

ICSD polls are open from noon to 9:00pm.
