Youth opportunity and volunteer firefighter taxes

Most of today's Dryden news is on the opinion page in today's Ithaca Journal. The Dryden Youth Opportunity Fund has a letter from Paul Streeter and Michael Dick of Dryden encouraging readers to remember the DYOF and:

consider providing your own economic stimulus package: invest in young people. The dividends are virtually incalculable.

Dryden Town Board member (and volunteer firefighter) David Makar writes in support of the Journal's editorial supporting Congressman Maurice Hinchey's proposed $1000 federal tax credit for volunteer firefighters, and also points out that Congressman Mike Arcuri is a co-sponsor.

There are a number of articles at more of the county level: one on the Tompkins County Foundation changing its name to the Legacy Foundation, one on Sara Pines and the Friendship Donation Network, and one on prospects for wind power in the county.
