What's New in County 22 - September 2012
I hate to keep talking about scams, but once again I would like to inform everyone of another scam in the area. It seems when the public learns of a type of scam in the area, another one is invented. This one is from a caller from Canton, Texas with a number of 903-287-9957. The conversation leads you to believe that you are going receive a new medical card. Then they ask you to provide personal information for your card when in fact they are trying to get your personal information to clean out your bank account. We are also getting a lot of mail scam or what is referred to as the “Nigerian Letter”. This scam states you won money or a lottery of some kind. Don’t “buy” into it. When you cash the check you won and send them the money they requested, your cashed check will bounce in a couple of days and then you will owe the bank the amount of money you just sent to the scammers. If you are in doubt, give us a call and if it is too good to be true it probably is.
The next few weeks will probably bring in a lot of leaf-lookers. Drive careful, because traffic may be congested at times. I asked my brother Matt, who is the park manager at Pikes Peak if he thought the leaves may be early this year. He did think they would be, and said it may be because of an early spring, so anything is possible. He usually believes October 9th is the peak or close to it every year. There should be a lot of fall activities to do in this area. Get out and enjoy some, just be careful of traffic and respect other drivers.
Fall is also the time of year when I get the inmates out and pick up trash along the highway. We currently have 13 inmates so if you need some help raking leaves, please give me a call and I will see what I can do.
If you have any questions, or comments, feel free to contact me anytime, e-mail me, or stop by to see me.
Thanks and be safe,
Sheriff Mike Tschirgi
