Ithaca, N.Y. — Krisy Gashler is a contributor to The Ithaca Voice. She can be reached at

Background: Krisy spent 3.5 years covering Ithaca politics and environmental issues for the Ithaca Journal. She won awards for her coverage of poverty in Tompkins County, Lake Source Cooling, environmental beat reporting (including Markles Flats near GIAC and the former Emerson site on South Hill), and the Amy Crockford/Stephen Moracco police misconduct allegations.

Favorite Tompkins County event: Farm City Day, especially when sheep and goats are involved.

Favorite ways to spend a Saturday in Ithaca: Hiking Robert Treman State Park, trip to the Sciencenter with my little man, or walking the Cayuga Waterfront Trail.

Fun fact: Krisy can juggle (very badly) and play the piano (not too badly).
