Candidates Forum tonight

If you're reading this as I write it, you're in time to get to the 7:00pm candidates forum at the Etna Fire Station, 26 Wood Road, which the Journal listed in this morning's Briefly in Tompkins.

The Journal seems to have reprinted the Republicans' self-serving press release verbatim, conveniently glossing over that the Democrats had reserved the Varna Community Center for October 23rd, a more traditional time for these conversations, and were planning on another event in the Village of Dryden before the Republicans decided to hold a very early one there.

The Journal also publishes political commentary where it belongs, on the opinion page, printing Steve Adams' detailed letter on the earlier forum and my letter endorsing the Democratic candidates.

In non-political news, you don't have to stay in Dryden to do good things for the world. The Journal reports on Joey Motsay's raising $35,000 for Friends for an Early Breast Cancer Test by pedaling a stationary bike for 174 hours in Greensboro, North Carolina.

At the county level, there's a report on the county budget forum and one on the 211 information line.
