Journal gets it wrong

I know there are a lot of local races in Tompkins County to keep track of, but I was startled to see this false line in this morning's Journal:

In Dryden, town board members David Makar (D) and Marty Christofferson (R) are keeping their names off the ballot...

True, Marty Christofferson is retiring, but David Makar is very definitely not retiring, as the filing for the caucus makes clear.

In brighter reporting, the 4-H Youth Fair is happening now on Lower Creek Road just north of Route 13.

On the opinion page, William Clay of Freeville writes about the possible effects of a consumption tax.
