BOILING SPRING LAKES, NC (WWAY) — One Boiling Spring Lakes resident is simmering mad at the city’s mayor and says she has many reasons why.

Natascha Yarolin says Mayor Richard White has a vendetta for the Boiling Spring Lakes Police Department. She says her husband got caught in the crossfire, and she won’t stand for it.

Yarolin says this is not the first problem Mayor White has had with the police department, and she is afraid if she does not say anything, it will not be the last.

“Everyone’s gonna know what this man is really about and all his skeletons he’s tried so hard to hide in the closet,” Yarolin said. “I’m gonna reveal them.”

Yarolin says she will not stop until justice is served. She says White is corrupt and spiteful, and she has had enough.

“He overstepped his boundaries in his position,” she said. “He has a lot of people snowballed into thinking that he is out for the public, for the citizens of Boiling Springs, but if you read this, he obviously does not care. It’s a personal vendetta for him.”

Yarolin says when she made requests to the city for public e-mails from the mayor, she was given blacked out copies. When she compared those copies to e-mails she had gotten in 2010, she saw that the section that was blacked out was about her husband and how the mayor did not want him considered for a job with the city’s police department.

The older copy of the messages shows White says Yarolin’s husband Paul has a criminal history and that the city didn’t need any bad press. He continues that Paul Yarolin has a probation violation, so he should not be considered.

Yarolin says her husband has never had a probation violation and that he was even cleared by Training and Standards in Raleigh to serve as a police officer anywhere in the state, so the mayor’s reasoning is hollow.

She says the mayor continually tries to attack the police department, from attempting to get the police chief fired for misusing his vehicle to stating that the department misused funds. Yarolin says this is the icing on the cake. She says White is abusing his power as mayor, and she will work until something is done to stop it.

“I came up with all of this in a week. One week,” Yarolin said. “Imagine what I can do in a month, ’cause it’s there. I’ve already got phone calls out. It’s there.”

Yarolin says she is going to the Boiling Spring Lakes City Council meeting tonight to confront the mayor and pass out information and documents she has found.

We spoke with Mayor White by phone today. He says he has nothing against the police department and is not aware of the issues with Yarolin and her husband.

We are going the meeting tonight and plan to speak with the mayor.

    Does Jason Collins still work as a cop with Boiling Spring Lakes?

    Everyone Is always worried about the he said she said! And I understand this is just politics in general, But really this is a small area that’s nice and quiet. Everyone for the most part gets along and minds there business. So why don’t we focus on who is going to put the effort in to improving Boiling springs and whats best for all the people living in this community. We are all human and have dirty little secrets, I am not much of a voter b/c of this kinda stuff right here!!! This nonsense that has nothing to do with the issues at hand. What are the potential mayor’s going to do for the community the spillway to save the lake that is boiling springs lakes, lower taxes etc.. I don’t know about everyone else but I want to know who is going to make the decision that effect my pocket. Not who has a criminal record and couldn’t get a job as a Boiling springs cop, and who told lies on who. I really don’t know what the situation is and none of us probably ever will know the whole story. Which the Whole police dept. seems corrupt and that really is just sad considering nothing really goes on as far as crime around here, I guess that’s what boredom leads to… poor decision making. It’s a sad world out there and all of you are feeding into this, you are just as bad as this lady plastering signs everywhere!! Please make your decision based on something other then this nonsense. I want to make this clear I am not a supporter of Richard White or Craig Caster but am making my choice based on the ISSUES at hand and the options given. Hope there is someone else out there in this confusion that feels like we are getting way off track!!!!

  • I Wonder

    I wonder if he got the job we would be hearing any of this.

    I think not. This smells alot like Curtis had a hand in this.

  • Good boy! So what is your opinion on the whole matter at hand now that we have gotten past the typos and stuff? Do you think she is right or wrong? Let’s hear it, friend. (Actually, let’s see it) I am all eyes!! I think we all need to rethink what is best for BSL and unload the people who cheat and lie and rob, don’t you? I know this wasn’t a political thing she was doing, but as long as it is almost election time, it should make some people think differently before they vote again! I am ever so serious about it! BSL could be an awesome place….we need more businesses, not to raise taxes to the extent they will raise if the spillway goes through, and someone in office with the city and the people in mind, not there just to “get even” with the police!! That is my honest opinion….let’s see yours!!

  • geo-aware

    Of course I should have typed ‘hear’ instead of ‘here’. But I caught and now have corrected my own error.

  • geo-aware

    Go to the top of this page and in the green box you will see, “video”. Click there and you will here the first and origional news story where she clearly states, “Boiling Springs”. So no, it was not printed anywhere. It came right from her own lips. Now that you know and when you find her, you can as you say, “…clear it up..”

  • Wasn’t aware that was happening!! Where was it printed as “Boiling Springs”? Hope it doesn’t cause her a lot of problems! Can’t be too careful these days, can ya? Thanks for bringing it to my attention, friend! I will clear it up as soon as I can find her! Think she might have gotten lost! Oh no! I think we are too late!!
    Just joining in the humor you all like to share……

  • Geoaware

    L.K., while you are remarking on “smarts” how about making sure the lady finds out Boiling Springs is in the western part of the state and she resides in, Boiling Spring Lakes and not Boiling Springs. It is good to know where you live so if you get lost someone can help you find your way home.

  • Whaawaa and cry cry…..there you have it people! These comments and guest names are typical of the people who vote for mayors and commissioners to run your city of BSL. Not too intelligent, right? Hope you can do better next time…..(not to mention they got rid of a good City Manager!)…….what a shame

  • Good grief….yes, you are the second one, but we don’t hold it against you, however, if you have nothing intelligent to say, why are you on here?You must work next to the mayor….or ARE you the mayor? Could be Charlie, tho. Jack Diddley? You and your stupid games! Grow up!

  • Guestwhaa whaa whass

    and here we have a second one! whaa whaa whaa whaa whaaaaaaaaa

  • Know what? I think part of the reason this is on page four now is because of the upheaval in the Leland Police Dept. taking a lot of necessary space in the news. Was the blind city manager their city manager, too? Fill me in….I don’t know if he was or not….did this guy have a record? I don’t know….I haven’t been reading about it. You seem to know a whole lot more than I could ever hope to. But this will all be back to page one I think! Maybe I’m wrong. One thing I am sure of and not wrong about is the Yarolins are good people doing good for their neighbors and the citizens of BSL. Wish I could say the same for everyone!

  • Guestcrycrycry

    The whambulance! That is too funny! ROFLMAO! But true.

  • whaawhaa whaaa

    Hubby does dope. Hubby gets caught. Hubby wants a job as a cop. Mayor tells blind city mangager to check record. Hubby does not get hired. Now, Wify drives the whamulance and you can now hear it all over the county. Whaaa whaa whaa whaa….

    There is a reason this is now on page 4 or 5 of the news. No one cares about the crybaby that is having to live with his and now her own doing. The only thing that is really a shame. The guy just may be a pretty decent guy that got caught years ago and now ‘wify’ has made sure every person in the county knows about his past. That does not change the fact he should have been refused the job. It only changes everyone now sees the laundry that really did not have to be hung out about him but, his wife did that.

  • After this is over and all of his shortcomings are public knowledge, will the mayor be singing a new version of the song you quoted? It could be called “Nobody knows the trouble I’m in……”. I wonder.
    Our Ms.Yarolin isn’t looking for ‘sympathy’, sir. She is looking for justice. Not just for her husband, but everyone who has been wronged by this man while you sat right there with him and watched it happen.
    Shame on you.

    What about the citizens that he is suppose to represent, are they not more important than someone here being paid. I dont think the out-of-town hired help would have mind if White took care of town business first Charlie…. What respect does he deserve… I think the citizens that pay the taxes deserve more respect. I think White just ran likes he always does when confronted with the truth about him. We should rename him Mr. Chicken.

  • Much more important issues do not make this less of an issue!
    See you in the clouds!!

  • I don’t know! Did he plant the weed on him? He has done worse sneaky things and never had to answer to them!! Huh!! You have a valid point there….and I’m not talking about the one your head comes to. And thank you for your input, commissioner.

    My, my, the little girl is all upset that her hubby did not get a job as a policeman in Boiling Spring Lakes. According to her it is all the fault of mayor, Richard White. From what she released to the media he did not get the job because he had a criminal record for one and the mayor told the city manager about it for two. If my city manager is too stupid to find this out on his own or if he just wants to overlook it, I have a problem with the manager, and not the mayor. But wait! Did mayor White ‘plant’ the weed on the man all those years ago? Does the plot thicken? No, it is just whiney little babies that feel something is owed to them. My God womam. Just how much simpathy do you think you are going to get while you go out and tell every person that has a TV, Radio, Computer, or reads the paper, “my husband has a drug conviction on his record and that mean mayor White told the city manager about it and then my husband did not get the job.” I can hear the blues being sung right now, “Nobody knows, the trouble I’ve seen….”

    Since you do not have even a clue on the facts I will try to help you out.

    The person from Raleigh is a paid professional that works for a group the city belongs to. I can not remember what the group name is but it was announced in a previous meeting and it was also announced this professional help comes free as it is part of the dues the city pays. So, your city, if you actually live in BSL had a professional personnel manager come in, at no cost to the city, at the invite of the city, in order to help the council with any questions they may have. Council did this. Good for them and good for the city. So, no tax money went out and by the way, there is much more going on in this city and much more important issues than the rejection of a candidate for a police officer’s job, because of his admitted criminal past.

    Oh but it is election time! But “they” say this has nothing to do with politics. Yeah right! Pigs Fly, too!

  • Is it Mayor White?

  • Guest

    Jack Diddley is a Catfish Farmer. Jack Diddley likes fried catfish nuggets and hush puppies with a side of slaw. Jack Diddley dips his hush puppies in honey butter. Jack Diddley goes to all the town meetings.

  • Well, let’s see. I think I would ask you first if you took any of the handouts from the meetings on Tuesday and Thursday. Seems to me there are other issues in there. I haven’t read through all of the papers, but I do recall seeing one in there about MY husbands “run in” with him. ( ordeal is a better word). First step is to take the handouts, second step is to read the handouts and the final step is to THEN voice an opinion.
    Yes, you are right about the voting in office and out of office, but this is not a political thing, either. Mrs. Y. is trying to make things right for her husband, my husband, and many others who have been attacked many different ways by Mr. White. It is time he is revealed for who and what he really is! He is not to be trusted in OR out of office and Mrs. Y. has spoke with a lot of people about a lot of different ways he has proven this. If some of those people had been brave enough to report him, he would have been charged with attempted sexual abuse among other things! Perhaps even imprisoned for a time.
    One might think all I have to do is sit and write about this, but that isn’t the case here. We were wronged by this person and I am going with this because Mrs. Y has opened a door for us to carry out what we started about him in our own experience with him. Thank you Mrs. Y.!!!!! She has opened a door for many of you…walk through it, people!
    I think the new vote is coming this year to answer your question.

  • Guest

    Guess since there was NO follow up Mrs. Yarolin’s 3 minutes of fame is up!If this was not all about her husband, how about enlightening us on some of the other facts. Also the mayor is an elected official, the people put him in, the people can vote him out! How many terms has he served?

  • Oh I believe Mrs. Y. did her homework! She has it all together! If you had done YOUR homework, you would know Mr.Y is already employed as a law enforcement officer! Cleared by the state to work as one. No we can not predict the future….but we can dig up the past and that is exactly what is happening to prove your Mayor needs to be called on some of his actions. If being exact and doing your homework is what you call “drama”, call it what you want. There is no better spokesman than the one we have. To start with, no one had the “guts” to come forward! Tell me something…..if WWAY didn’t find this “newsworthy” what are we doing on this site? It IS the news we are on here and so was the interview….are you not aware of that?????
    Good thing you said she is an instigator. If you had said alligator, White might shoot her. (heard about that a while back)

    Jack Diddly (Squat), a.k.a Diddly Squat – the equivelent of nothing; something that amounts to nothing.

  • Guest

    Jack Diddley went to Woodstock and watches Austin City limits in his spare time.

  • Guest8555

    Give us at least a hint. Does Jack Diddley work for the city?

  • Guestcleanears

    At the meeting you are speaking about a person came from out of town (stated, more than four hours away) to give advice to the commissioners on hiring a new city manager. This person coming to town for this meeting had been known about for some time and planned for this night. At the invitation of our city an coming in before he ate supper, the mayor announced he was taking him to dinner. This certainly was not running out but treating the out of town guest with the respect he deserved for coming in the first place. If you are going to write these complaints, please write the truth and not just simply make up stuff as you go along.

  • Why do we have the commissioners? Why did someone have to come in from out of town to “help” hire a new city manager? Why are we getting a stranger in here to help? Nothing against the guy from Raleigh, just a question. Another question…why are we getting a spillway to save the ice cream shoppe from flooding? It is going to raise your taxes TRIPLE people!! There are a lot of things to think about!!! Do your homework, people!!

  • Hmmmmm

    The emails didn’t state anything but the truth, he HAS a record! Has he tried to apply at other law enforcement agencies? NONE will hire because of his record, NOT just BSL. Seems Mrs. Yarolin should have done her homework first. Also seems by some of the comments she is a drama queen and an instigator. If BSL has a problem with their mayor, they should have picked a better spokeswoman than this whiner! Maybe WWAY got it right this time, NOT NEWSWORTHY!!!!

  • Where’s the answers

    All of your have given this girl so much heck about standing up for what she believes in. Where was Richard white tonight. That’s right he left and didn’t answer any questions! I think if he had nothing to hide he would have stuck around to answer the questions. I believe these people when they say it’s not about the job or money. I think it’s about and injustice but not only with them but so many other people and employees. Their heart seems in the right place but no one is actually willing to listen.just look at the evidence she handed out it’s all their in black and white ..

  • Guest

    You will see and time will tell that Jack Diddley is behind all of these reindeer games.

  • Guest

    what about the girl who fundraised that money for police and the mayor claimed that the police were using that money illegally? hes out against those police officers because he was forced to resign hes a dirty man

  • Guest

    Who is Jack Diddley?
