Comments, Questions and Answers

Jury Duty Scam! - This has been verified by the FBI (their link is below). Most of us take those summonses for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out on their civic duty, that a new and ominous kind of fraud has surfaced. The caller claims to be a jury coordinator. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any of this information and bingo; your identity was just stolen.

The fraud has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma , Illinois , and Colorado. This (swindle) is particularly insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully people into giving information by pretending they are with the court system. The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide alerts on their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud.

Brigada Verde - BRIGADA VERDE invites you to continue saving plastic #1 and #2 containers and bottles (look for the number on the bottom) so they can be collected later in the summer at the new and improved Recycle Center. Directions to our new location will be posted in the BWO in late July. And, remember that you can still take your glass to Pescadero, just check the Onion calendar. See you in July! - Zandra, zandraframe [-at-], Todos Santos

Blossom - Do you remember the pictures of Blossom, the little dog that dug her way into Kitty Heaven and didn 't want to leave there? Her picture was seen in California on the Onion and Connie and Andy fell in love with her. Andy came to Todos Santos with a carrier (a bit too small because of Blossom's curly tail) and she went to Northern California to her new home , lots of love and treats, a new family, and new friends! Please remember, there are many dogs and cats that are homeless here and would love to be your new best friend! - Kitty Heaven, Angelique Schornstein, bajakitties [-at-], 14-50250
