Scam Alert:

During these unprecedented times there has been an increasing amount of challenges and questionnaires on Facebook that encourage you to post information about your personal life.

Two of the most recent ones are, "Share a picture of every car you have ever owned," or "Share the last ten cities you have lived in." These posts seem fun as it takes you and others on a trip down memory lane.

However, you are just sharing information about yourself that could help others gain access to your personal information. One of the most common security questions is, "What was your first vehicle?"

Other challenges and questionnaires ask the maiden name of your mother, where you attended school, or where you were born. All of these questions could potentially be asked to identify yourself to gain access to your email, online banking, etc.

As fun as these challenges/questionnaires may seem, we encourage you not to participate and protect your personal information. And be especially wary of posts which ask you to copy and paste the post. Doing so allows the original posters to look at the accounts of everyone who copied and pasted their information.

It's tempting to play these games when we have so much time on our hands, but hackers are sometimes using these tricks to learn your information. Don't make it easy for them.

Are you looking for some work? The Census is still hiring in Decatur County. It's mainly temporary but will be paying $17.50/her. Apply Now!!!!

The Census Bureau is still hiring in Decatur County. Apply now!!!!!

The positions available with the Census Bureau are primarily temporary employees to be Census takers within the Decatur County area. These Census takers will be responsible for going door to door to collect the Census information that households did not fill out. They will get a list of houses to visit provided to them every day on a government issued iPhone, and it will be their job to go to the houses, identify themselves as with the Census Bureau, and collect the Census information on their phone.

The position is expected to last eight weeks and start in the summer (June 1 is the estimated start date we have been told). Not to mention, the pay rate is rather substantial at $17.50/hr plus 57.5 cents on every mile driven for work (including the drive to and from their house). Training is also paid, and if a Census taker works in the evening or weekend. They will be paid time and a half for their efforts.

We are looking to relocate to the Leon/Lamoni, Iowa area to be closer to family. We are a family of 4 looking for a minimum of a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house with a yard. We are looking to relocate to the Leon, IA area, BUT Osceola and surrounding areas would be fine also. We can provide our current landlord as a reference and I am sure he would give a GREAT review of us as tenants. I can also provide personal references that can detail our character as well. We are a Christian family that does not smoke, do drugs, or party in anyway. Our little family consists of my wife, our 10 year old daughter, our 2 year old son, and myself. Please send us a PM if you have anything available or may know anyone that has something available or know of anyone that may have something. Thank you for your time.
