DRAC to present petitions; school budgets pass

The Dryden Resource Awareness Coalition will be presenting petitions on zoning home rule and industrial noise to the Town Board tonight, having gathered 452 on noise and 389 on zoning. In a town of around 13,000 residents, that's a lot of petition signatures!

School budgets around the area passed, including Dryden and Ithaca. Dryden school board president Andrew Young and incumbent Perry Dewey were re-elected, and newcomer Karen Pastorello will join. In Ithaca, board president Rob Ainslie and vice-president Brad Grainger were re-elected, and former board member Judy Maxwell will rejoin.

In Dryden Town Talk, Cathy Wakeman reports on time-traveling Boy Scouts, the September Dryden Youth Opportunity Fair, the Dryden Beautification Brigade, and the success of local students in the Rite Aid Drug Show Quiz as well as three local farms noted as Dairies of Distinction.
