As Wheeling village president runs again, financial woes resurface

Argiris did not return a phone call for this report. In a previous statement, he said, "Like many people, I have had some financial struggles."

One of two challengers seeking to upend Argiris' bid for re-election in April has faced financial troubles, too. Michael Kurgan, a Wheeling Park District commissioner, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2011, court records show.

Kurgan, a real estate broker, claimed debts apart from his house totaling about $255,000.

A judge discharged the case three months later, wiping out certain debts. Kurgan declined to comment on the case.

Business owner Pat Horcher also is seeking the mayor's post.

While in bankruptcy, Argiris used a village credit card for numerous purchases that had no listed public purpose, which he paid back months or years later, and drove a decommissioned police department Ford Interceptor without restrictions on its use.

Air bag update: Stop driving these cars NOW

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued an urgent call today for the owners of certain older Hondas and Acuras to stop driving those cars immediately because there is a high risk the air bag could rupture in a crash.

New test data on cars affected by the massive recall of defective Takata air bags has found that air bags in some 2001-2003 Hondas and Acuras have up to a 50% chance of rupturing, a higher risk than other cars in the recall.

The higher-risk inflators are in certain 2001-2003 Honda and Acura vehicles, including:

2001-2002 Honda Civic 2001-2002 Honda Accord 2002-2003 Acura TL 2002 Honda CR-V 2002 Honda Odyssey 2003 Acura CL 2003 Honda Pilot

“With as high as a 50% chance of a dangerous air bag inflator rupture in a crash, these vehicles are unsafe and need to be repaired immediately,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.

Foxx said these cars should not be driven unless it is to a dealer to be repaired. Unlike some other cars affected by this recall, replacements parts are available immediately to complete the recall repair.
