Sorry, wrong number

The Board of Selectmen in Bethlehem, N.H., has fired two town administrative assistants for making inappropriate phone calls from town offices.

The Caledonian-Record newspaper reports that Bethlehem Police Chief Eric Lougee has tentatively identified the voice of one assistant, Kathleen Kennedy, as that heard on the answering machine of a sister of the other assistant, Cindy Holmes. Kennedy is alleged to have made the call on behalf of Holmes in order to persuade Holmes' sister to sign documents relating to a legal battle over their late father's estate.

Kennedy was trying to impersonate a clerk at the local probate court, according to the newspaper, which cited court records.

"We are very disappointed to have to do this," Selectman Judy Wallace said of the firings. "This is very unfortunate, but now that it is behind us, we can concentrate on other town business."
