Deploying from Dryden

This morning's Ithaca Journal has a report on the send-off ceremony for the 108th Infantry's Company D held yesterday at the National Guard Armory on Hanshaw Road. 80 local residents are off to Fort Bragg, NC for two months of training before going to serve in Afghanistan, training the army and police.

It looks like the Ithaca area will be getting tighter connections to the electrical grid, including substantial upgrades of lines through Dryden.

On the opinion page, Charles DeMotte of Freeville calls for the next American President to be a visionary.
