WARNING: As the weather gets hotter, incidents of children dying of heat stroke in hot cars increases. Here are some tips from the National Safety Council to keep our children safe: Never leave your child alone in a car, not even for a minute. Keep your car locked when you are not in it so kids don't gain access. Create reminders by putting something in the back seat next to your child, such as a briefcase, purse, cell phone or your left shoe. If you see a child alone in a car, call 911. Set a calendar reminder on your electronic device to make sure you dropped your child off at daycare; develop a plan so you will be alerted if your child is late or a no-show.

PLEASE KEEP YOUR PETS SAFE IN THIS HOT WEATHER.

There has been an increase in the number telephone scams taking place across the U.S., many of which involve owing tax money. Know that: The IRS is now allowing third party agencies to collect unpaid debts. But only four contractors are approved. They are CBE Group, Con-Serve, Performant and Pioneer. If you owe money to the IRS, you can expect to get a phone call from an IRS agent before they turn your debt over to a collection agency. Collection agency workers should NEVER ask you to send money over the phone. If you receive a call regarding owing tax money that you feel is suspicious, please contact the IRS via a listed phone number for verification.
