Dealing in retirement?

I don't even know what to say about this one:

Dryden Police accused Frank B. Sears, 66, for trafficking in several types of prescription drugs, including more than 500 oxycodone, morphine sulfate, opana, vicoprofen and diazepam tablets and pills of various sizes, according to court papers. Diazepam is used to treat anxiety disorders. The other drugs are painkillers.

Sears lives at Willowbrook Manor, an apartment building for senior citizens in Dryden, and he stashed the drugs in his room and separate storage area there, the documents allege.

It sounds like Dryden police built a rich case against him, so perhaps he'll be off to a very different kind of senior citizens home.

In brighter news, Cathy Wakeman reports on the many good things local organizations are doing, including the Etna playground build Friday and Saturday, the Sertoma Spaghetti Dinner (followed by a silent auction) next Friday, Covenant Love School student art on display at the Dryden Community Center Cafe, the Dryden Youth Opportunity Fund's call for grant applications, and Dryden Rotary's lottery for a food run at Clark's.

Hanshaw Road residents may be interested in the continuing battle over zoning next door in the northeast corner of the Town of Ithaca.

At least he wasn't putting the drugs in anyone's milk! I think this is a little tame for Dryden?
