Gracie Manos benefit today

Briefly in Tompkins lists a benefit for the family of Gracie Manos at the Dryden VFW this afternoon from 2:00pm to 8:00pm. Tickets are $10 at the door.

Jen Dube, Dryden's departing Recreation Coordinator, gets a laurel from Dryden Kiwanis for her work on Kiwanis baseball and softball.

Carol Kammen looks at the local reaction to the Gettysburg address and notes Henry Weaver of Dryden who died in the battle and Albert Hollenbeck of Dryden who was taken prisoner.

There's also an article on escalating political warfare in Albany. I doubt it will surprise anyone that I think Albany needs a lot more conflict - not just between the "three men in a room", but among everyone in the legislature as well. While I don't know how this particular battle will work out, it seems painfully clear that it will take a lot of conflict for there to be any chance of democracy breaking out in Albany.
