The president and chairman of the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair were ousted in a private meeting Monday night by a group of Horse Show board members. Amid allegations of secret land deals and undisclosed conflicts on both sides, the board of directors voted to replace president Sarah Coxe Lange with Richard M. O'Donnell, the current treasurer. Also, chairman Henry Lafayette Collins III, who has served on the board for nearly 50 years, was replaced by Wayne W. Grafton. Board member Mimi Killian said that new leadership was necessary to move forward. Last year. Former president and chairman Wade McDevitt stepped down from his leadership roles and the board in March after he was accused by some of keeping the board in the dark about a plan to develop a retail center in Devon that included leasing some Horse Show land.

Former Philadelphia sportscaster Don Tollefson on trial for fraud charges in Philadelphia, is talking to the media. Prosecutors say he sold phony travel packages to about 200 people for more than $300,000. Tollefson plead guilty to the charges in September. Then, last week, he took it back. He says he has new evidence, but wouldn't elaborate as Tollefson told reporters about drug abuse he says began after he was injured in an accident. The prosecutor in the case says he was prepared to recommend Tollefson, serve his sentence in a treatment center if he made adequate restitution to the victims.

A Delaware daycare provider is facing child endangerment charges, after police say she left two kids in her car, while she went shopping. And that was just the beginning. Police say while 40-year-old Tonya Robinson was shopping, the car was towed with a one year old and five year old inside. The tow truck driver says he couldn't see the children in the car because of the tinted windows. When Robinson reported the car missing, police went to the tow-yard and found the children in the back seat. They were not hurt.
