Meeting is canceled when reporter shows up

Shenandoah County’s Fire and Rescue Association – struggling to deal with the closing of a member squad – postponed a widely-announced meeting because a news reporter attended, according to the Northern Virginia Daily.

The county government last week pulled the plug on the Strasburg Volunteer Rescue Squad, apparently because of reliability issues.  A question-and-answer session about the troubled squad was on the agenda for the Association meeting yesterday.

As the paper reports, however, scores of volunteers and others in attendance were sent away because Association leaders were made aware that a reporter was in attendance.

President Dale Fogle said the meeting would be rescheduled after leaders had a chance to consult with legal counsel.
