Jim Bostic Allegedly Delinquent in Paying Staff at Nepperhan Community Center By Hezi Aris
YONKERS, NY -- Jim Bostic, sacred cow and director of the Nepperhan Community Center (NCC) is again allegedly delinquent in paying his staff. Funding for NCC is comprised of Community Development Block Grants and other subsidies. Bostic has proven himself to be a poor manager over his cash flow needs, evidently incapable of planning to meet the recurrent remuneration requirements to pay his staff. This is the second situation for which Bostic is allegedly responsible and for which he has not responded. Read the June 6, 2008 story published in the Yonkers Tribune Website entitled, Nepperhan Community Center in Arrears Paying Staff By Hezi Aris. An inquiry and request for response was left at NCC at 4:00 pm with no reply yet. Similarly, a request of Councilmember Patricia McDow through her City Council aide has yet to be returned on this issue.

Another situation for which there is community silence, is the allegation that there was a one-time incident in which 300 some-odd gang members met at the Glenwood Power Station for the sake of gang initiations allegedly during May or June 2008. The Yonkers Police Gang Unit has during the last few months not been able to corroborate any semblance of the allegations made at public hearings held at the NCC, and postulated by Jim Bostic, and Councilmember Patricia McDow. Again, no corroboration from either of these so-called community “leaders.”
