State takes the edge off school budget pain

It still doesn't sound delightful, but the school budget story seems slightly less dire than before as the state restored some funding to districts.

Dryden has four candidates up for three school board seats, while Ithaca schools are still accepting candidate petitions through April 27th.

It looks like treating hydrofracking wastewater in ordinary sewage treatment plants really wasn't a good idea. (Much more detail here.)

Finally, Murray Cohen of Dryden asks if it might be "a fine symbolic gesture if members of Congress voted to cut their salaries in half for the rest of this year and all of 2012?"
