 TINY TOWN, N.Y. –– Despite the recession Ithacan-Americans and visitors to our little patch of green are throwing money into the fountain on The Commons by the bag full.

The tinytowntimes.com economic unit stopped counting at $3.00 in change, mostly pennies, but also some nickels and dimes. We do not know whether anyone profits from this booty or if wishes are granted from the tossing of these coins.

We are fairly certain that the water quality suffers from the presence of the lucre and drinking from the fountain is deemed unwise.

At the time of this story, it was unknown where the money goes if unclaimed at the end of the fountain season, otherwise known as summer.
