RPM grows trees for Gulf Coast

This morning's Journal report that Dryden greenhouse RPM Ecosystems is producing trees for the Gulf Coast to replace those damaged by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita, and has a photo gallery showing more of the operations, which are on 13 next to Willow Glen Cemetery.

The county budget moved out of committee, currently showing a 1.6% spending increase, a 2.8% tax levy increase, and a 38% rate decrease. (The rate decrease is because the three-year cycle for assessments is ending.)

On the opinion page, James Burlitch of Ithaca writes to endorse Stan Marcus for Town Board, and Darlene Clauson of Freeville writes to endorse Chris Clauson for Town Judge.
