VVFC, others clean arson site

The Varna Volunteer Fire Company helped organize a cleanup at the burned Bryan Bangs house, clearing the debris and wreckage from this weekend's arson.

In other news, the Varna Community Sale Day will be this Saturday, July 17th, from 8:00am to 3:00pm, with rummage sales around the hamlet and barbecue and hot dogs available after noon. The Varna United Methodist Church will be opening its own flea sale (and selling sundaes!) at 11:00am.

On the state level, Empire Zones are dead, replaced by Excelsior Jobs. Old Empire Zone residents don't lose their benefits, many of which I don't think accomplished much, but I'll be curious to see what comes of the new program and what it actually means.
