Freeville man injured in Genoa blast

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports on a propane explosion in Genoa that severely burned a Freeville man and injured a Moravia man. The two were removing a valve from a thousand-gallon propane tank when it exploded.

Inside, there's news that has received $100,000 in grants for workforce training.

In political news, it sounds like one Democrat, Molly Fitzgerald, edged out Republican Joseph Fazzary to become the third of three State Supreme Court judges elected this month. The other two winners were both Republicans, Phillip Rumsey and Michael Coccomo. I'd heard of Fazzary through his work as Schuyler County District Attorney, where he seems well-liked.

I'll cover the editorial in a separate article.
