Search Goes On For New Shelter Director

The interim executive director of the Humane Society of South Mississippi is excited about the group's future, despite the recent turmoil over the firing of its former director. Karen Sinopoli was dismissed by the board of directors last week, after four years as executive director.

The man who's taken her place says his main focus is the future. Board member Eric Aschaffenburg is filling the position as interim director. He doesn't want the full time job. But right now, he's very much involved in running the animal shelter, and beginning the search for a permanent replacement.
