Lane to participate in redistricting roundtable

This morning's Briefly in Tompkins makes two mentions of Dryden. Former Dryden County Legislator Mike Lane will participate in a panel on redistricting in New York, something that I fear is desperately needed. Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton is sponsoring the event, with Assemblyman William Parment, who led the efforts that inflicted the current Assembly map on the state, also participating. It'll be October 10th, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm at Ithaca Town Hall. (I'd have liked to be on that panel, but I'm buried in local elections.)

Also in Briefly in Tompkins, the Red Cross will hold lifeguard training at Dryden High School, running from noon to 8:00pm every Saturday in October.

In a piece on what to call people from various areas, Carol Kammen notes the acceptance of "Drydenites".

Hank Dullea's guest column on contested races notes the contested Dryden race this fall.
