Adam Clayton in the Register-Star reports about Taghkanic councilwoman Debora Gilbert, who is also a volunteer programmer at WGXC. Gilbert resigned from her two-and-a-half-year stint on the town board, leaving an open seat. She said she resigned because of a nepotism claim she says goes unresolved in the town, though, at one point, she voted in favor of promoting the son of the highway department chief that she's now complaining about. According to the article, Gilbert said, "she regretted voting for his raise and promotion afterward and rescinded her vote on the grounds of moral conscience. 'I just feel that no father should be directly in charge of their own son,' Gilbert said. 'Other factors, like home life or personal problems or personal feelings of family, can and will influence that supervisor’s decisions in regards to his son. I just morally object to it.'" Gilbert co-hosts "@Issue" every other Wednesday at 10 a.m. on WGXC (90.7-FM). Read the full story in the Register-Star.

• "The Irish Show," hosted by Tony Fallon Sunday night at 8 p.m. on WGXC (90.7-FM) is now broadcasting from Acra's Wave Farm studio. Now closer to East Durham, Fallon says he expects to have many more local musicians as guests at the Wave Farm studio.
