The crew here at the Lassen County Times is now busy working on our annual Lassen County Book of Maps. In addition to a full map overview of the county, the Book of Maps consists of 32 pages of accurately detailed street maps for each of the individual communities throughout Lassen County. You will find it conveniently sized — without sacrificing optimum readability and practicality — to fit nicely in your vehicle's glove box or in a desk drawer at home or the office. So, when you need to find a street it is right there at your fingertips!

This year marks the fifth edition with some 10,000 copies distributed throughout the region. Ad prices are very affordable, with prices ranging from $80 to $400 (for a full page). It is set to hit the streets in May, with an advertising space deadline of March 26.

The administration at Seneca Healthcare District shared with us a fraudulent bill they received seeking immediate payment on a supposedly past due balance that was being “referred to debt collections” if action wasn’t taken immediately. A quick and cursory review might suggest to some it appeared to be an authentic charge for yellow page advertising. You have to believe that if this fraudulent billing company is taking the time and effort to mail (who knows how many of these) bogus statements out to businesses some must be inadvertently getting paid. Even though it had a Bulgaria return address, one might mistakenly think it was just another American company outsourcing their work.

But is does serve as a good reminder for us to never assume anything and to make sure our internal checks and balances are as they should be. Thanks Seneca for sharing this important information.
