Locals in the limelight

Durable Corporation’s Tom Secor of Willard was the subject of a Wall Street Journal article about the fiscal cliff deal cut earlier in the week by the president and Congress.

The gist: Secor might have to pay 4 percent more taxes on his projected $400K in income this year and he appears to be a little less than pleased about it:

Hoax exposed

The Daily Dot, the Web site founded by former Reflector reporter Nick White, was cited by an industry publication for it’s exposure of a massive Wikipedia hoax that fooled the site’s editors for half-a-decade. The hoax concerned the 1640-1641 Portugal-India Bicholim Conflict which, it turns out, was completely made up.

For those who ice fish at the reservoir, please note this will cause the ice layer to thin from the bottom up; it's not as safe as it looks!
