Southworth Book Sale Thursday

This week's Dryden Courier leads with an article on the Southworth Library book sale, to be held Thursday through Saturday at the Dryden Fire Hall. It will start at 9:00am all three days, but end at 5:00pm 8:00pm on Thursday and Friday and 1:00pm on Saturday. Last year's sale bought the library a photocopier and some expensive large-print books.

The Dryden schools are looking for an interim superintendent, with applications due today. They also passed an audit, and are having a hard time getting a serious examination of traffic on Route 38 by the Middle School/High School.

There's a wonderful "This Month in History", which opens with a picture of Dryden Senior Citizens meeting around 1958, and talks of trains for the Dryden Fair, construction of the Borden Milk Plant, and opposition to the Freeville sewer project twenty-five years ago.

The editorial talks about the importance of voting in primaries, but remember - there is no primary tomorrow for either Democrats or Republicans in Dryden. Mary Kirkwyland thanks Ithaca Beautification Coordinator Chrys Gardner for applying for a grant that funded the Dryden Beautification Brigade.

The Dryden Village Police report looks like a lot of traffice stops, many of them in Freeville, which the Dryden police also patrol under contract.

In sports, there's a report on the Dryden Girls Soccer team's 1-0 loss to Trumansburg, with a photo.

Matt Cooper's Inside Dryden column starts with "Bed and Breakfast Month", noting discounts at the Candlelight Inn and Bountiful Blessings. He also notes the Dryden High Student Council's 5K run, which will be held Sunday, September 30th. He mentions the Dryden VFW's steak and fish dinner on the 21st and an Auxiliary dance the 22nd. Sylvia Short still has "The Dryden Barbershop Cookbook". He also reflects on how New York State car inspections are more thorough than those in Texas, and wonders if that's a good thing.

There's an article on the Freeville Harvest Festival, talking with the planners.

Just wanted to let you know that the Southworth Library Book sale does not end at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday and Friday. According to their web site and flyers, the sale goes until 8:00 p.m. on both of those days.
