Delhi appoints new fiscal officer By Kurt Backscheider

DELHI TWP. — Officials have here selected a new township fiscal officer. The board of trustees voted Wednesday, Jan. 8, to appoint James Luebbe as Delhi Township’s fiscal officer. Luebbe will fulfill the unexpired term of Cheryl Sieve, who resigned from the position after being elected a trustee in November. A township native who attended St. Dominic School and

Elder High School, Luebbe is a CPA and sole practitioner of his own accounting business, township-based James J. Luebbe Inc. Luebbe He earned a degree in accounting and business administration from Bethel College. “Jim has the applicable educational and professional qualifications,” Sieve said. “He exhibits the skills we

know are going to be necessary to manage our future finances.” Luebbe, who has three sons with his wife, Lisa, and is active at Our Lady of Sieve Victory parish, said the idea to be township fiscal officer was first implanted in his head a few years ago after someone suggested he’d be a good fit when former fiscal officer Ken Ryan stepped down. “When the opportunity came

up again, I thought it was a great chance to serve my township,” Luebbe said, noting his children are older now and he has more time to commit to the job. The township has financial challenges ahead, primarily due to state funding cuts, and he said his goals are to maintain the township’s fund balance and work to increase property values. “I’m looking forward to serving the residents and working with the trustees,” he said. Sieve said the township was

lucky to have 10 qualified residents apply for the position. She said she thinks residents will be impressed with Luebbe’s level of professionalism. “He has this strong sensibility to do the job,” Sieve said. “He’s going to be an important piece to the team and we’re really fortunate to have him.” The unexpired term Sieve left before being sworn in as trustee will run through the end of 2015. Luebbe will have to run for election in November 2015 if he would like to retain the seat beyond that time.

Cold weather doesn’t cause many issues in Delhi DELHI TWP. — Township officials reported few problems due to the bitter cold start to last week. With the temperature plummeting to -5 degrees Monday, Jan. 6, and a wind chill of -30 degrees, the area braced for the coldest temperatures to hit the Tristate in two decades. “People are doing a pretty good job of behaving themselves,” Delhi Fire Chief William Zoz said. Firefighters and paramedics were busy responding to a variety of calls for service Monday, but he said fortunately there were no serious problems in the township. Some of the calls included carbon monoxide runs, fire alarm drops,

medical runs and false fire reports due to people mistaking steam from ventilation pipes as smoke, Zoz said. When the weather gets this cold, he said he always worries about residents using alternative heat sources inside their homes. He reminded people to be careful and follow instruction manuals when using space heaters and other electric heaters inside the home. To keep firefighters safe from the cold, Zoz said crews were staying inside the fire stations with the garage doors closed until they received an emergency call. Delhi Police Chief Jim Howarth said it had been a relatively calm day as of Monday

afternoon. Aside from helping a few residents who were locked out of their cars in the morning while warming up their vehicles, he said officers hadn’t been called to many instances. “I think people are staying in,” Howarth said. “It hasn’t looked too bad, knock on wood.” Ron Ripperger, Delhi’s public works director, said the public works crews were very busy overnight clearing township streets and putting down salt. He said it’s difficult to clear the roads when the temperature is this low because the salt takes longer to work. Water on the streets was also re-freezing and the wind was blowing

snow back on clean streets, he said. “It was ugly last night,” he said. By morning, Ripperger said township streets were passable, but considering the extreme cold they weren’t in top condition. Public works employees who worked late into the night went home early Monday to get some sleep and eat, he said. Crews who were on duty Monday stayed out of the cold, working to keep the township’s trucks in operating order, he said. “The talk of the town right now is whether everyone has enough salt,” Ripperger said, noting Delhi has plenty of salt.

DELHI TWP. — Connie Allen has seen far too many people lose their money in a casino. A former professional blackjack dealer, she was routinely on the receiving end of players gambling away their cash. “After seeing people doing things so wrong, I realized they need help,” said Allen, a Delhi Township resident who worked at the Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg for 16 Allen years. “Novices lose so much money. If they knew the correct way to play they could possibly stay in the game longer and make their money last longer.” To assist players, she decided to write a book and share her firsthand knowledge of how to find success in casinos. Her book, “The Casino Through a Dealer’s Eyes,” was published late last fall by Tate Publishing. Allen said she started working on the book in 2003, but she was still employed by the casino at the time and wasn’t allowed to share her insights into the casino world. When she retired from her job as a dealer she thought it was time to pen a book and find a publisher, she said. “I’m very happy with the book,” she said. “I never thought I’d be an author. It’s a great feeling because it’s not just a book.” Allen said it’s a guide she hopes will help players increase their knowledge of a casino;

Governor unveils intervention plan at Finneytown By Jennie Key

It’s time for parents, teachers, and other adults to talk to teens honestly about heroin and prescription drug abuse, Ohio Gov. John Kasich told an audience assembled at Finneytown High School. He launched a new drug abuse intervention program there Jan. 8 to give them the tools to have those conversations. The Start Talking initiative includes $1 million in grant money for schools and nonprofits to strengthen their efforts to encourage prevention. The program is aimed at looking at ways to reduce the liklihood of drug use among teens before it begins by increasing communication between youth, their parents and other adults. Teens at the presentation said they thought the program could help. Braydon Sullivan, a sophomore and Ryan Whitt, a junior, said while they haven’t encountered heroin or prescription drug abuse at the parties

they go to or heard fellow students talking about it, a program like Start Talking could start conversations about drug abuse among teens and they’d be willing to participate in encouraging peers to stay away from drug use. Finneytown senior Rebecca Huff said the idea of “Saying Know” vs “Saying No” struck her as the governor talked. “Maybe hearing more information – the real information about how dangerous this is can help,” she said. Kasich said heroin is in all 88 Ohio counties, and he intends to use a grassroots effort to educate parents, teenagers and teachers on the dangers of opiates. Hannah Heath, a junior at Finneytown, said at first, she thought Start Talking was no different than other programs, but said as she listened to the presentation, she thinks it may help. “I really didn’t know what to expect, but as I listened, I realized that even if it makes one kid change his mind, it has

value,” she said. “And if it’s one student at every school in Ohio, it would be a big impact. No program will work for every student; maybe we need a lot of different programs to address the problem.” Kasich said research indicates youth are 50 percent less likely to use drugs when parents and adults talk with them about substance use and abuse. “Law enforcement agencies are fighting to curb abuse on the supply end, and each of us as new players and old pros will benefit, Whitman said.

parents can do our part by talking to our children.” Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, who accompanied Kasich and an entourage of state and local officials and law enforcement personnel to launch Start Talking, said 800 Ohioans died of heroin overdoses last year and opiates now kill more people in Ohio than traffic accidents. Programs within the Start Talking initiative include: » Know!: Schools and parents can sign up for a

free service that sends out emails twice monthly with pointers on talking to youngsters and teens about drugs and other preventative measures. » Parents360 Rx: A community education program including a video about substance abuse to help parents and school leaders host discussions about how to prevent substance abuse at home and in the community. » Five Minutes for Life: Representatives from the Ohio State Highway Patrol and Ohio National Guard will lead conversations with student athletes in locker rooms and other venues to encourage them to talk one-on-one with their peers to promote healthy lifestyles. » Building Youth Re-

siliency: A grant program to help schools and nonprofits create tools to help students resist substance abuse and peer pressure. The governor said the $1 million to fund the program comes from the federal government through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program and will not strip dollars from the state highway patrol. Officials estimated the program will cost about $50,000 a year to administrate. Finneytown High School Principal Jack Fisher said he thinks the new Start Talking initiative will work well with the adviser/advisee program at his high school. He said teachers have small groups of students they advise and high schoolers have the same adviser all four years and that could help implement the initiative at the school. “We will look for ways to promote and show the video to all of our kids and hopefully a lot of our families,” he said.

Cheviot Fire Department receives helpful donation By Kurt Backscheider

CHEVIOT — Fire Chief Robert Klein is looking forward to getting new extrication equipment for the department. He said the extrication rescue tool, or “jaws of life,” the department uses is more than 25 years old and in need of replacement. “Its blades are not sufficient for cutting through some of the newer metals used today,” Klein said. Thanks to the Cheviot Cultural Development Committee and the Cheviot Firemen’s Association, the department will soon have a new extrication tool. The department received a $1,650 donation to use toward the purchase of new equipment. “With the way our budget is shrinking every year, we need all the help we can get,” Klein said. “We really appreciate the donation.” In conjunction with the Cheviot Firemen’s Association, the city’s new cultural development committee raised the money this past fall during its inaugural Cheviot Music &

Arts Festival. Cheviot City Councilman Jeff Baker, a member of the committee, said the purpose of the group is to promote arts and culture throughout Cheviot while also giving back to the city. City officials are looking for ways to encourage economic development in the city, and he said promoting and attracting the arts is one way to boost the economy. “This is the start of what we want to accomplish here in Cheviot,” Baker said. “To turn the empty stores and spaces into quaint shops, it starts with

the culture.” He said the music and arts festival was the first of many events the committee is planning to bring people to the neighborhood and highlight the city’s amenities. “It was a huge success,” he said. “The money we raised from the Cheviot Music & Arts Festival will certainly go a long way. I think it makes everyone feel good about the committee and gives us hope we can continue to build upon the success.” Proceeds from every event the committee hosts will be donated to city departments, he said. The committee will raise money to improve the city’s parks and recreation facilities in 2014, he said. Klein said the jaws of life are used in many emergency situations, so having an updated piece of equipment is highly important. The old extrication tool will be used for training, he said.

Blaut commits to UC after whirlwind ’13 By Tom Skeen

PRICE HILL — Oh, how things can change in one year. At this time last year Seton High School’s Loretta Blaut had hopes of playing college basketball and was averaging less than seven points a game for a .500 basketball team. Today she is verbally committed to a Division I college for track and field. So what happened? After being convinced to give the high jump a try as a junior, Blaut won the Girls’ Greater Catholic League title, a sectional title, a regional title and became the Saints’ first track and field individual state champion in school history. “It’s just been a total whirlwind and a total turnaround,” Blaut said of the last year of her life. “I never thought I’d be in the position I’m in and I’m honestly so, so grateful for it. My life just changed so dramatically, obviously for the best.” Blaut even surprised herself by verbally committing to the University of Cincinnati last month. “I didn’t think I wanted to stay close to home and that I wanted to go farther away and experience new things,” she said, “but then I went to UC and I experienced everything there.

for me.” Track is on hold right now while Blaut helps the Seton basketball team to what most hope is a deep postseason run.

Mercy duo creates special bond on lanes By Tom Skeen

WESTWOOD — Sabrina Weibel and Sarah Corso didn’t know each other when they walked through the doors at Mother of Mercy High School three and a half years ago as freshmen. Today it’s hard to locate one without the other being close by. The evolution of their friendship can be attributed to the four years they’ve spent as members of the Mercy bowling team under coach Mike McDonald. “We’ve been spending a lot of time together with bowling and then started seeing each other a little bit outside of school and bowling just made our relationship stronger as friends,” Weibel said. “We’ve grown to support each other more.” Support is something McDonald said was lacking in the duo’s first two years on the team. As youngsters on teams filled with upperclassmen, both Weibel and Corso were more

about competing against individuals than they were about working toward a common goal. Much of that changed during their junior season.

“I think last year really did it for them because they were within a pin average (of each other) all year back and forth,” McDonald said. “Instead of be-

ing combative competitors, they became very, very close friends. They do things together, they’re always together and they want to bowl in the same pair together. They don’t want to be split up.” Now the close friends are leading a group of Bobcats who are looking for the school’s fourth-straight league title. “They all look up to them and they all want to compete with them,” McDonald said of Weibel and Corso. “That’s what’s neat about this team; they all want to be better than each other and they see those two and it’s something to go for.” Just because they are best of friends doesn’t mean the competition has ceased. Minutes after beating Northwest High School Jan. 8 at Northwest Lanes, Corso had this to say about their relationship on the lanes. “I want to kick her butt and she wants to kick mine. That’s how it always is. That makes us want to be closer and that

makes us better than one another. … It’s good competition, not a mean competition. We feed off each other’s motivation, so it’s good having her here.” Now the two hope that motivation, along with Corso’s GGCL-leading 204.3 game average, can take the Bobcats to the next level and get back to the state tournament as a team for the first time since 2010. “We know we are capable of getting there,” Weibel said, who made it to state as an individual qualifier her sophomore season. “I think we really want to do it for our coach, but it’s also the fact that it’s our senior year and we all want to go far.” For Corso, a trip to Wayne Webb’s Columbus Bowl the first weekend in March would be one heck of a way to end her Bobcat career. “That would be crazy, man,” the senior said. “We’ve always made it through sectionals, we’ve always made it to districts and state is kind of that last step. State is our last goal.”

tion major is excited for track season, but being a senior the last thing she is going to do is overlook her final season on the basketball court. “Being a senior this year and being a captain I just feel like I should be leading my team,” she said. “We lost a few good players last year so I just feel like I should step up and help my team. I just do the best I can.” After the basketball season wraps, Blaut will take to the track where she will venture into new territory as well as look to defend her Division I state high jump championship. “I’m taking up long jump this year so hopefully I can be somewhat successful in that and then hopefully, I’m going to be back-to-back state champion.

River was gorged, if not gorgeous In my last column I talked about the windstorm that happened on Wednesday, July 7, 1915. In this column I will talk about the Ice Gorge of the Ohio River of 1918. It all began with a record snow storm of 11 inches that occurred on Guest Dec. 8, 1917. columnist Around midCOMMUNITY PRESS night snow GUEST COLUMNIST was falling faster than the Cincinnati Traction Co. workers could clear the tracks. Streetcars all over the city derailed. One motorman was crushed to death on Gilbert Avenue when he attempted to push a stalled truck off the tracks. With all mass transit shut down, Cincinnati became a walking city with thousands of people walking from the hilltops to work downtown. The temperatures plunged and the river began to freeze.

Now all river traffic also stopped. By Jan. 1, 1918, the Ohio River was frozen shore to shore for 134 miles from Higginsport, Ohio, to Madison, Ind. On New Year’s Day many Cincinnatians grabbed their ice skates and headed for the river. Women dressed in bonnets and ankle-length wool skirts and coats accompanied by men in topcoats and bowler hats paraded across the frozen river. With no coal coming in on barges and natural gas pressure falling dangerously low, Cincinnati Mayor John Galvin pleaded with citizens to help their neighbors. Unmanned barges were being torn loose by large chunks of ice, and went down river and crashed into other barges filled with coal. Ice was stacking up. Six more inches of snow fell the first week of January 1918, keeping the temperatures at freezing. In an attempt to save the steamboats moored near the public landing, dynamite was used to

break up ice that locked them to the shore. On Jan. 30, a loud crack was heard in the ice and it began to split. Steamers blew their whistles to spread the news. All the tributaries that flowed into the Ohio were melting into enormous ice

slabs. This caused a wall of water and ice chunks that picked up speed and headed towards Cincinnati. A 20-foot swell of water and ice hit the Cincinnati riverfront sometime on Feb. 1, causing the river to rise to 61 feet. Steamboats, towboats and barges

Fireplace, wood stove tips to help protect your health Home fire safety tips include more than installing fire alarms and developing a fire escape plan. While less obvious, Megan fire places and Hummel wood stoves COMMUNITY PRESS can produce GUEST COLUMNIST pollutants that can harm your health, if not addressed. If you smell smoke inside your home, that’s a sign that harmful air pollutants are in your home. Wood smoke contains a mixture of air pollutants including microscopic particles. Studies show particle pollution can harm the lungs and heart and even cause early death. According to the U.S. EPA,

particle pollution can trigger asthma attacks, impair lung development in children, increase symptoms of COPD and cause coughing, wheezing and chest tightness. For people with heart disease, particle pollution is linked to heart attacks, irregular heartbeat, heart failure and stroke. People at greater risk from particle pollution, including wood smoke, are older adults, children and teens, and people with certain health conditions such as heart or lung disease and asthma. New or expectant mothers may also want to take precautions to protect the health of their babies. Burning the right wood, the right way, in the right wood-burning appliance can reduce harmful air pollution.

Burn the right wood Not all wood is the same. Always burn dry, seasoned wood to reduce particle pollution. Softwoods such as Douglas fir need six months to dry and hardwoods such as oak need at least 12 months. Garbage, plastic, treated lumber and driftwood should never be burned.

Burn the right way

Wet wood is a problem for your health and your pocketbook. It creates a lot of smoke and burns inefficiently, meaning the heat literally goes up in smoke. Moisture meters are inexpensive and available at hardware stores to test the wetness of wood before burning. Wood should only be used if the moisture content is 20 percent or less.

Burn in the right appliance Like an old car that belches smoke out of the tailpipe, old wood stoves are bad polluters and less efficient. Newer, EPAcertified wood stoves and fireplace inserts (wood stoves designed to fit into a fireplace), reduce air pollutants by 70 percent compared to older models. Remember, there are also some important regulations for open (outdoor) burning. Where you live may determine whether you can burn. To learn more about air pollution or open burning please visit Megan Hummel is the public relations coordinator for the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency.

CH@TROOM Jan. 8 question What do you think of city council giving the go ahead to resuming the streetcar construction for Cincinnati?

“Damn fools!!!”


“Stupid! Just like the stadiums were. “After all they are politicians who are only in it for themselves. They cannot pay the retired firemen and policemen so let’s go into debt a little more. I have been to cities with streetcars and they are a gimmick.” J.S.D.

“Great idea for Cincinnati streetcar construction and that Mayor Cranley was big enough to get his mind changed. “The streetcar should mean hundreds of jobs (construction and for operation), growth, and less smog in the city – all good for the area and southwest Ohio’s environmental and economic future.” TRog

NEXT QUESTION Do you think school officials made the right decision recently by canceling classes because of cold temperature? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to delhipress with Chatroom in the subject line.

“Cincinnati needs to get with it and continue to move forward on the streetcar construction. We need to move forward on transportation for a change, instead of constantly being stagnant (traffic jams anyone?), or moving backwards by the proverbial 10 years. “Now that downtown has been inundated by young professionals who live in and actually like our downtown, the rest of Cincinnati needs to get out of their rabbit holes and get moving. “You cannot expect Cincinnati to be a world-class city



A publication of

without world-class transportation, and that includes light rail from the suburbs to downtown. “The streetcar is just a first step that can send Cincinnati into a bright future instead of lagging behind.” J.B.

“All I have as an input is that I would bet the supporters to the ‘rail to nowhere’ would not be willing to sign up to make up for the deficit that it is going to create. Move over Detroit, here we come.” D.J.

Jan. 1 question Should the U.S. adopt an advisory panel’s recommendations to end the government’s systematic collection of logs of all Americans’ cellular phone calls and require those to be kept in private hands “for queries and data mining” only by court order? Why or why not?

“No advisory panel should be adopted. A federal judge has al-

ready declared that the Obama/ NSA data mining acts are unconstitutional on Dec. 16. “The media fails to mention that President Obama campaigned against the Patriot Act in 2008 – but after his election, he did not keep his promise. Instead, President Obama injected an unlimited dose of steroids into the arms of the NSA and the Department of Homeland Security for political power. The NSA is just the beginning of Obama’s data collecting frenzy – there are also the new Obamacare medical records, new Common Core student records and the new FBI DNA database. Since 2009, the Department of Homeland Security has been pushing states to upgrade their drivers licenses with RFID (radio-frequency identification) chips 'that will signal a secure system to pull up your biographic and biometric data.' “Citizens need to stand up to protect our personal freedoms, privacy, and liberty before they are all lost.”

The fuel flatboat and another ferry boat tied up on the Kentucky shore also sank. The drydocks at Fernbank Dam were iced in. A towboat of the Hatfield Coal Company sunk at Sekitan,near North Bend. More than 100 coal barges were lost and coal yards along the river were flooded. The shortage of coal almost shut down the power plant that supplied heat and light to Cincinnati.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Streetcar has been tried; we moved on

Back when I was growing up, some 71 years ago, I was on the tail end of the old trolley buses that eventually took over from the clang, clang trolley streetcars. Yes, there was a time when the conductor had to leave the streetcars/buses, go to the rear of the electric/ transporter, reconnect the overhead couplings to the wires above, before reengaging movement, while, for those of us who remember without heat before, during and after as we trudged onward to our next destination. But then, our political leaders decided it was time for a modern form of transportation, that being what we called modern, up-todate diesel buses, which, by the way, expanded to our newer formed villages, townships and cities encircling Cincinnati. Why would most of us want to drive to a downtown subdivision (other than to attend ball games, museums, arts etc ...), visit yuppies who have holes in their pockets, with what they say is revitalizing their own suburbs when we have the necessary amenities in our own neighborhoods? Why don’t investors from the suburbs of Downtown Cincinnati pool their monies together, buy up all the old, old two-story and vacant buildings, tear them all down, build centralized shopping malls with free parking, and watch the outskirt taxpayers return from whence they were born? Please, don’t be asking my brethren, the U.S. government, to subsidize a go-to-nowhere streetcar system, when we been there, done that before.

Feed your family – and the birds Brrrr! Today is definitely a soup day. The temperature in my herb garden read 11 below zero. I’m glad we’re not entertaining this week since I have my Amish wooden clothes rack lined with clothes drying by the wood stove and that takes up a good amount of room. Not exactly the ambience for having people over, but all is still good. As the clothes dry, they add a bit of needed moisture to the dry air. Grandson Rita Jack had his Heikenfeld tonsils and adeRITA’S KITCHEN noids out over the holidays, so I took over some soups and other favorite foods. He was able to eat a bowl of the chicken tortellini soup recipe that I’m sharing today right away. His brothers, Luke and Will, finished it off. It reminded me of how something like soup can nourish and make one feel special. I wanted to share it with you because it really is easy and healthful and goes together in minutes.

it and hang where birds can find it. Cookie cutters: Fun for the kids. Spray insides well and pack the mixture in. Poke a hole in center if you’re going to hang them up. After a day, you will be able to gently push mixture out in one piece; it will still be soft but you can lay it on rack to finish drying.

The Goetta issue. As I always do this time of year, I’ll be sharing my best goetta recipe along with readers’ recipes. Send your favorite goetta recipe, along with the story of how/why you make it. Pia’s chicken salad. The family shares this heirloom customer favorite.

Tips from Susan’s Natural World

Rita’s simple chicken tortellini soup is good for someone who is under the weather.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Rita’s feel-better 15-minute chicken tortellini soup

Fresh greens – spinach, chard, whatever Parmesan or Romano cheese

The broth is easily digestible and the garlic is an antibiotic. Good for someone whose appetite is compromised. The chicken and tortellini provide protein and some carbs, and the fresh greens contain antioxidants.

Put broth and garlic clove into pot. Bring to boil. Add chicken and tortellini to boiling broth. When tortellini floats to top, it’s done. Remove garlic. Stir in handfuls of fresh greens. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with cheese.

1 quart or so of low-sodium chicken broth 1 garlic clove, smashed Cooked chicken – a generous cup or so 1 bag frozen cheese tortellini

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

You can leave the chicken out if you want a more brothtype soup. More pantry herbs and spices that fight colds and flu:

Check out my blog for these plus nice recipes for gingerlemon tea and chilled citrus drink.

3 ⁄4 cup all-purpose flour 3 tablespoons corn syrup 1 ⁄2 cup hot water Cooking spray Heavy ribbon or string

Birdseed ring

Pam Freeman, a New Richmond reader, shared this recipe a while back. Here’s my adaptation. Check out Pam’s seasonal crafts on her blog on Laura’s lean beef website. Pam always has something fun and doable for families to make together. 3 cups wild birdseed 1 cup sunflower seeds 1 envelope unflavored gelatin

Combine birdseed, gelatin, flour, corn syrup and water. Spray Bundt cake pan (or other bake ware) with cooking spray. Press seed mixture very firmly into pan. Place pan in warm, dry place and let sit overnight or until dry. Depending upon how warm it is, this could take a few days. Once the birdseed mixture is hardened, turn pan over to release ring. Tie ribbon around

Best vitamin supplements for men, women and children. Susan Parker of Susan’s Natural World, was a guest on my cable show (Warner access, channels 8 and 15). She showed her three most important supplements for men, women and children, and took all the mystery out of what we should be taking, supplement wise. She also made a yummy vegetarian dish of cauliflower (on the 2014 trend lists of good foods), onion, red bell pepper and peas. Susan calls it “eating the rainbow.” Check out my blog for photos.

Junk e-mails often aimed to steal identity Years ago I heard most email received by consumers is junk mail of little interest to the recipients. That’s not only just as true today, but now you have to watch out for spam emails designed to steal your identity. The easiest way for thieves to get your personal information is to infect your computer with a virus. The virus allows the thieves access to your information, including passwords, which can even give them access to your bank accounts. These spam emails have been sent at an increasing rate in recent month disguised as all sorts of things. For instance, one came from

the “Apple Security Center” seeking account verification information. But, a Howard check of Ain the sendHEY HOWARD! er’s email address showed it did not come from Apple so clicking on the link it sent could have infected your computer. Marlene, in Cincinnati, wrote me she received an email allegedly from Walmart, which claimed it was canceling her delivery because of problems with her address. She was asked to click on a link and send her new address. She

“A Name You Can Trust”

C&orcoran Harnist

wrote, “I believe the email is a hoax and scam to get my personal info since I haven’t ordered anything from Walmart recently. I didn’t open the ‘form’ they asked me to complete.” Dan, of Green Township, wrote me he received an email claiming to come from Costco and also claiming there was a delivery delay because of a problem with his address. The wording of that email is almost exactly the same as the one Marlene received claiming to be from Walmart. Again, Dan says he did not click on the link requesting his information because he realized it was a scam since he doesn’t belong to Costco.
