Fountain Valley: Column and Duncan Mcintosh

The move comes after Arellano resigned from the OC Weekly this month after he refused a request by newspaper's owner, Duncan McIntosh, to layoff half of the publication's staff. The column's founder, Gustavo Arellano, told The Associated Press on Monday that the final version of the humorous installment will appear online for Albuquerque's Weekly Alibi. Arellano says the OC Weekly owns the column and he has rejected an offer to continue it as a contractor.

When I had my meeting with Duncan McIntosh...he said he was open to me continuing the column on a 'contract' basis, Arellano said. ( As reported in the news.
