Recently, several area residents have reported that they have received phone calls or emails which we feel are SCAMS. Please remember: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!" NEVER give your Social Security number or personal financial information to any caller. Read the following consumer alert from the Arkansas Attorney General's Office. If you have any questions, feel free to call our office. CONSUMER ALERT: Sweepstakes Scams Stealing Arkansans Cash May 17, 2017 LITTLE ROCK – Scam artists are making unsolicited phone calls and sending unsolicited emails to convince Arkansans they have won a sweepstakes or lottery. But there is a catch – “winners” must first wire a processing fee or fill out a form to provide banking information to the con artist so the money can be deposited. This is a scam. “Arkansans work hard for their money, and these criminals who do what they can to steal from us are appalling,” said Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge. “My office has had recent calls from Arkansans reporting they were told they had won $2 million – if only they would send $900. Consumers need to be cautious when receiving unsolicited phone calls or emails. Legitimate organizations will never require a processing fee or private banking information in exchange for a prize.” Attorney General Rutledge released the following tips to help consumers spot one of these scams: Consumers should not try to collect winnings from a sweepstakes they do not remember entering. Never give out personal financial information. Do not pay any money up front in an attempt to claim a prize. Always remember, if it looks or seems too good to be true, it mostly likely is. Scammers often use the name of legitimate businesses, like Publishers Clearinghouse, or a similar name to trick consumers into turning over their information. No matter how the consumer is notified, there is a good chance the consumer will lose money instead of winning it. When money is wired to a foreign country, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to get it returned. Consumers should ignore all unsolicited sweepstakes prices and immediately contact the Attorney General’s office to report the call or email. For more information and tips to avoid scams and other consumer-related issues, contact the Arkansas Attorney General’s office at (800) 482-8982 or consumer@arkansasag.gov or visit ArkansasAG.gov or facebook.com/AGLeslieRutledge.

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mom's out there! We hope you have a blessed day.

We'd like to congratulate the Waldron High School Class of 2017. This is the day you've worked for the past 13 years. Good luck to each of you in your future endeavors.

Praying for our brothers and sisters at the Yell County Sheriffs Office, Lt. Kevin Mainhart's family and the families of the other two victims. There is relentless evil in the world, that seems to get worse everyday, but there are also relentless defenders willing to sacrifice their life for the sake of others.

We are saddened by the passing of Bill Luttrell, who served as Chief of Police here for several years. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

The four way stop at Washington and 4th Street is now a two way. The stop signs on Washington have been removed. More intersections may be changing soon.

We threw a little surprise party for the Chief today. This month marks his 25th year with the Police Department. We couldn't ask for a better leader and role model. Thank you Chief for your dedication to the City and your Department!

This morning, Waldron Police initiated a pursuit on Hwy 80 West near Heritage Memorial Funeral Home. The pursuit went from 80 West, to Middle Winfield Road, to Hwy 248 West, to Parker Road, then back to Hwy 248 West, where the suspect was finally apprehended. During the course of the Pursuit, we were joined by a Scott County Deputy and an Arkansas State Trooper. While the suspect vehicle was on Parker Road, he did use his vehicle to strike a Scott County Deputy, who was out of his vehicle, and his unit. Shortly after that, the suspect struck a Arkansas State Trooper's car. The suspect, identified as Steve Duncan, was captured a short time later on Hwy 248, just West of Parker Road. We would like to thank the Scott County Sheriffs Office and the Arkansas State Police for their assistance today and everyday.

Thank you to the Area Agency on Aging for the donuts yesterday and to Coach May and the Football Boys for the donuts today. We appreciate your support, thank you for thinking about us.

The main roadways are in pretty good shape, city streets are getting better. It's still slick in spots and will most likely refreeze once the sun goes down. Please use caution while out driving.

We would like to wish you all a Happy New Year! Please enjoy the holiday weekend safely and responsibly.

Merry Christmas from our family to yours. We hope that each of you have a safe and joyous day and since we live in the south, keep an eye on the weather this evening!
