Polite jousting over legislative Chair

While redistricting seems unlikely to make a drastic difference in Dryden, two Dryden County Legislators are making competing cases about how the Legislature should run and came to a deadlock at the beginning of the year.

This morning's Ithaca Journal has two Guest Viewpoints, one from each legislator:

The legislature meets tonight to try to sort things out, and it sounds like there may also be multiple candidates for the Vice Chair position.

The SPCA will have a free rabies clinic Wednesday night from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.

Looking beyond Dryden's borders, Governor Cuomo's initial budget won't include funds for managing hydrofracking. I'd be cautious about reading that as "no permits will be issued in 2012," but it makes it less likely. Meanwhile, more electric generation plants are moving to natural gas from coal. (It sounds like Cornell's plant did that too.)
