    A central New York man who has been asked to remove a Nazi flag on his property says he's being hacked and that it's a "distress call."

    More than 400 people have signed a petition asking town officials to do something about the Nazi flag.

    Preble Town Supervisor Jim Doring says Fish refused to take the flag down when they talked. Doring says Fish told him he was flying it because of a dispute with a neighbor.
