The office manager, who is also a program host, was reliev­ed of his duties shortly after complaints arose following his e-mail to Congressman Gibson’s office.
The e-mail was reportedly directed to the congressman’s office in response to a campaign press release sent to the Roxbury-based community radio station, which is a National Public Radio (NPR) affiliate.

VW Parts fire ruled accidental

By Jay Braman Jr.
The fire that destroyed the garage at the beleaguered VW Auto Parts complex in the middle of Fleischmanns in August was not arson.
That’s the ruling by Delaware County Fire Investigators, who spent hours in the charred aftermath trying to determine what did cause the blaze.
According to Steve Hood, director of the Delaware County Office of Emergency Services and its Fire Investigation Team, the cause was discovered quickly on the same day as the fire. “We knew that evening what started it,” he said.

Water rate changes on tap in Fleischmanns

By Jay Braman Jr.
If you are a full-time resident in the Village of Fleischmanns, chances are you are paying too much for water.
On the other side of the coin, if you are a summer resident, you are probably paying too little.
While, in reality, it is a bit more complex than that, the bottom line is that village officials believe the current arrangment is unfair and they are at work now to make changes to the water district’s billing to even costs out.
