It’s on all of us to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. With just a few simple steps, you can help do your part:

- Drain all water from boats and equipment, including livewells and buckets.
- Never move live fish (those in water), aquatic plants or animals from the lakes and rivers.
- Aquatic invasive species can even hide in the mud on an anchor.

We are seeing cases of the "grandparent scam" in the region. The grandparent scam starts when a person receives a phone call claiming to be one of their grandchildren, an officer, or their grandchild's lawyer stating they need money because the grandchild is in trouble (using stating their was an accident and their grandchild caused it). Information is easy to find on the internet to target those in age groups that are likely to have grandchild. The grandparent is instructed to withdraw money and not to tell anyone about the incident because of court order, threat of arrest, etc. The grandparent is then instructed to deliver the money through a ride share or to purchase several prepaid debit cards. If the scammer is successful, it is common for them to call back and state the bail was increased. The victim may be instructed by the scammer to go to multiple branches of their bank or multiple stores to not raise suspicion.

PLEASE share with those not on social media. Make sure you talk with those in your life that are most vulnerable to NEVER give their personal information over the phone and to NEVER withdraw large amounts of money without discussing it with a trusted person.
