A Social Security Administration employee in Baltimore has been reprimand by his supervisor after numerous complaints from coworkers for “uncontrollable flatulence” in the office.

Despite several formal complaints against the man, he continued to do so making the office a "hostile" and "intolerable" work environment for all employees in the surrounding area.

The letter detailed times of the incidents from 17 different date and 60 specific incidents of when the employee passed gas in the workplace. On one particular day, the man released the unpleasant odor nine times.

After an employee confronted him about the problem, the man stated that he would turn on his fan when it happened. His supervisor advised that "turning on the fan would cause the smell to spread and worsen the air quality in the module.”

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
