Creekwood Apartments suffer Christmas fire

Apparently Dryden did not have a quiet Christmas - it just took the Ithaca Journal a few days to catch up to news of a fire early Christmas morning. Four residents of Creekwood Apartments, on Lower Creek Road, were displaced by a fire that damaged four units. One unit, where the fire started, was severely damaged, while the others suffered less severe damage when the fire moved through a shared attic. Three of the residents found empty apartments elsewhere in the complex for now. The Etna, Freeville, Varna, Lansing, Harford, McLean, Dryden and Cayuga Heights fire departments responded to the fire, and shuttled water from the 13/366 intersection to the apartments.

The Journal also reports on County Legislators' attendance records. Duane "Tyke" Randall, who represents Groton, part of Lansing, and the northeast corner of Dryden, missed the most meetings, six legislative meetings plus some committee meetings.

Today is the last day for the electricity Voice Your Choice program.
