Spitzer resigns; 25 to life for Manos

Governor Spitzer announced his resignation; Lieutenant Governor David Paterson will be sworn in as Governor on Monday at noon. The Journal looks at the likely minimal local impact, and lets State Senator Jim Seward kick around the Upstate-Downstate theme that Senate Republicans keep pretending they champion.

Marie Manos received a 25 years-to-life sentence for 2nd degree murder in the May 15th drowning death of her niece at her Ringwood Road apartment.

In brighter news, Cathy Wakeman's Dryden Town Talk (which I think was delayed a day because of the scandals) looks at Margaret Brownell Lorenzen's biography of her husband, and then visits Southworth Library. Senator Seward, of course, sort of earmarked them $2500 to make sure he's known personally for his support, and they're also working on a $15,600 matching grant opportunity. Wakeman also reports on Saturday night's Boy Scout Troop 24 lasagna dinner at the Dryden Veterans Memorial Home at 5:00pm and 6:30pm, and the high school drama club's "On the Town," which will run tonight through Saturday at 7:00pm.

She also reminds voters of the Village of Dryden elections, which will be held Tuesday, March 18th, from noon to 9:00pm.
