ARLINGTON, Ore.---The mayor of a small Oregon town has been recalled after she posted photos of herself in a bikini next to a firetruck on MySpace.com.

Carmen Gronquist lost her job by only three votes of the town people.

She says she has no regrets.

Others in Arlington, Oregon say the recall might have involved a controversy over a golf course. Mayor Gronquist eliminated two jobs there during the fall and winter to save money. That upset some golfers.
