    It’s sump pump season!

    Before the May flowers, April showers bring work for aging sump pumps in our area. Many people don’t find out they have an issue with their sump system until it’s too late. Check your sump pump by manually activating the float switch to ensure proper operation. There are some situations where you may not be able to reach your float switch, particularly if you have a Radon evacuation system. In this case, the homeowner can typically open the small hatch in the sump pit cover and pour water in from a 5 gallon bucket to trigger the pump to activate….

Telephone Scam Warning

Apr 14, 2014

Telephone Scam Alleging A Relative Is In A Financial Or Legal Crisis The Internet Crime Complaint Center continues to receive reports of telephone scams involving calls that claim their “relative” is in a legal or financial crisis. These complaints are sometimes referred to as the “Grandparent Scam.” Scammers use scenarios that include claims of a relative being arrested or in a car accident in another country.

The “Angel Lady” by: Mary Jo Lane If you have visited Mercy Health – Anderson Hospital during the past 23 holiday seasons, you will no doubt know the “angel tree.” Located just inside the hospital lobby, this tree has been dedicated each year to the hospital volunteers in honor of their contribution to the hospital. The “angel” who made this tree possible all these years is Josephine Lane. Mrs. Lane, a volunteer herself for the past 36 years, had the idea 23 years ago to create a unique ornament to decorate a tree to honor the volunteers. She decided on…
