V.Y. Times News Service The FBI said Wednesday night that it has ex- anded a New Jersey espionage nvestigation to determine whether one of its own agents, barged last month with spying or the Philippines, may have also had improper access to lassified information while working in Vice President Dick Cheney's office several years ago. The FBI agent, Leandro Ar- agoncillo, 46, of Woodbury, N.J., a U.S. citizen who was bom in the Philippines, was charged Sept. 12 with passing classified information to govern- ment officials in Manila. The charges filed against Ar- agoncillo relate only to classified information that officials say Ar- agoncillo took from FBI com- puters after joining the agency in July 2004. But the investigation is wid- ening, government officials said, because he had worked for sev- eral years before joining the agency as a Marine in the vice president's office under both Al Gore and Cheney. A former ad- ministration official said that Ar- agoncillo had briefly worked as an aide in Cheney's office, as a holdover from Gore's staff. Mili- tary aides frequently rotate through those offices and usually hold security clearances. ABC News reported Wednes- day night that Aragoncillo had also stolen classified material from White House computers at the vice president's office, in- cluding information damaging to Philippines President Gloria Ma- capagal Arroyo. On Wednesday night, govern- ment officials said they had no corroboration that any material had been taken from the vice president's office, but they ac- knowledged that investigators have been focusing on Aragon- cillo's work at the White House. "As a result of this recent sit- uation, they're going back to look at his earlier work to see if other stuff may have been com- promised." said a government official, who asked not' to be identified because he was not au- thorized to discuss the case pub- licly. The White House refused Wednesday to comment on the case. AGENT, PAGE A-8 Jim Commentucci Staff photographer AN HONOR guard of BOCES public safety students salutes as pall bearers carry the casket containing the body of Brian De- Long from the Church of Christ in Oswego. DeLong, 17, was enrolled in the BOCES program, hoping to be a firefighter. 'Helping hand' laid to rest Oswego teen remembered for kindness to others By Douglass Dowty Staff writer DeLong, a teenager with a car- ing heart and helping hand, had hoped to be a firefighter one day. This fall, the Oswego High School junior had enrolled in an Oswego County BOCES public safety class, his first step on a ladder leading to his dream of fight- ing fires and keeping people safe. Last week, he mustered the courage to ask out the girl he'd shyly wooed since the start of high school. Pulaski resident Michelle Paglia, 17, met DeLong at her mother's pet shop in Oswego, where the boy worked as a volunteer for two years. Saturday night, DeLong's dreams and his life were ended by a man driv- ing a Crown Victoria along state Route 3 in the town of Richland. Terrance M. Wilson, 55, of Lysander, told police by the time he saw DeLong and three friends walking along the road, it was too late. DeLong pushed DeLong Paglia out of the way. The car hit DeLong. Police said the driv- er was drunk. DeLong, 17, was dead. The other three teenagers survived. Paglia wasn't even taken to the hospital. The other two teens, Gregory Palmer, 17, of Wafertown, and Amanda Salisbury, 18, were treated for minor injuries. Minutes before the crash, DeLong had admonished Paglia for straying too far out into the road, she recalled Wednes- day, the day of DeLong's funeral and burial. Paglia remembered laughing, playfully giving DeLong a "kiss on the cheek. That was her last memory of the first date with the boy she had known so long, she said. "He was being she said. "I felt like he had me in his womb." The day after DeLong died, Paglia de- scribed him as "shy" and "adorable." Wednesday, she called him a hero. More than 200 people came to pay .their respects to the boy and h.is dream Wednesday, including firefighters from Scriba, Fulton and West Monroe. HEN'S, PAGE A-8 Troopers: Man sent impostor to take paternity test By Aaron Gifford Staff writer A Chittenango man who po- lice say sent an impostor to take a court-ordered paternity test for him was arrested Tuesday and charged with two felonies. "He didn't feel like paying child support is what the prob- lem state police Investiga- tor Mark Nell said. Troopers said James Durney, 40, asked a man they believe is a relative to take a test that would Durney Simon determine whether Durney was the father of a girl born in May. When the paternity test or- dered by family court showed Durney was not the father, Nell said, the girl's mother protested. County employees showed her a photo of the man who took the test, Nell said, and she told au- thorities the man was not Dur- ney. Earlier this year, a Syracuse resident, Gerald Seals, was sen- tenced to six months in jail for having his cousin take a paterni- ty-test. The scam was uncovered when the mother of the child no- ticed the photo of the test taker was not Seals, officials said. Durney, of 9 Sleepy Hollow Road, and Neil Simon, 34, ol Pittsfield, Mass., were charged with tampering with a public re- cord and filing a false instru- ment, both felonies, as well as misdemeanor criminal imperson- ation. Troopers said additiona charges are pending. Both men were released on their own cognizance and are scheduled to appear in Lenox Town Court Nov. 17.

Mulder Staff writer In the year since 40 Below held its first summit in Syracuse, 58 members of the young profes- sionals group have joined the boards of local nonprofits. The group has lined up schol- arships for young entrepreneurs eager to sharpen their business skills. And its members have rolled up their sleeves to spruce up downtown.
