W.B. Strong approaching 100

This morning's Journal notes, in Briefly in Tompkins, that the W.B. Strong Fire Company, also known as the Freeville Fire Department, will be 100 years old next April 7th. They're hoping to put together more information on the company:

Those with pictures, memorabilia, or stories to share should contact Richard Blackman at 844-8651, Joan Manning at 844-9334, or the Fire Station at 844-9662. The Fire Company is especially looking for pictures of the Firemen's Auxiliary and parades from the 1950's and 60's.

On the opinion page, Jerome Ziegler of Dryden writes to support Herb Engman in the Town of Ithaca Supervisor's race.
