Dryden police officer honored for work against DWI

Dryden police officer Kurt Soderholm was honored at the STOP DWI Awards Luncheon for his work fighting DWI at a small police agency:

Soderholm said he made 14 DWI arrests from November 2006 to this November. He believes people who drink and drive tend to think they can get away with it.

"People have to realize it's not right," he said. "On the roadway, you're playing with death."

Trevor French of Etna, coordinator of Recycle Ithaca's Bicycles, leads off an article on the growing project.

On the opinion page, the editorial calling for regional cooperation among airports seems to echo the shift at the Journal itself, which is becoming more regional and less local. A case in point: the big front-page article on energy choices, which comes straight from the Binghamton paper.

In good news that might create new opportunities for sharing local information, Governor Spitzer put forward plans to increase broadband Internet access in rural areas.
