County budget passes; election dart

The County Legislature passed an amended 2008 budget last night, cutting TCAT funding but adding funding for an additional corrections officer. It sounds like rural bus routes will likely be cut - I'll keep an eye out for changes that affect Dryden. The budget includes a 2.82% tax levy increase.

On the opinion page, I'm not sure why the Journal didn't publish it in Darts and Laurels, but David Weinstein of Ithaca (actually Varna) sends a dart to the Dryden GOP "for trying to question a candidate's patriotism as a means for gaining office."
