Utility scam hits LMUD customers

Tuesday, June 30, 2015 —There have been several reports from LMUD business customers who state they were contacted by an individual claiming to be an LMUD representative.

The caller instructs customers to go to Wal-Mart or Safeway, purchase a pre-paid debit card and call the fake representative with the card number and PIN. The caller tells the customer that if they fail to comply their utilities will be disconnected.

Be rattlesnake safe while going outdoors

Monday, June 29, 2015 —As the warm weather returns, humans are not the only species coming out to enjoy the sun. Snakes, too, can be found basking in the sun’s rays. Although most snakes in the state are harmless, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife reminds the public to steer clear of the venomous rattlesnake and know what to do if one strikes.
    All of California, from the marshlands to the mountains, is snake country. You don’t even have to be in the great outdoors to discover a snake. They can be found in your garden and sometimes even your garage, but there is no need to panic. Snakes play an important role in the ecosystem, including keeping the rodent population under control.
    Rattlesnakes are generally not aggressive and usually strike only when threatened or deliberately provoked. Given room, they will retreat. Most snakebites occur when a rattlesnake is handled or accidentally touched by someone walking or climbing. The majority of snakebites occur on the hands, feet and ankles.
