Hub sites will “Do not let the scammers in by giving out ANY information or pressing a number on the phone or sending them Bitcoin, gift cards or money. Just hang up.” The PUC takes their role in educating consumers about the dangers of scam calls seriously. For handling suspicious calls, the commission offers these additional tips: If you answer the phone and are asked to press a button to stop receiving these calls, hang up. Scammers often use this trick to identify potential targets. Don’t respond to the caller, even to say “yes” or “no.” If you get an unexpected call from someone claiming to represent a company or government agency, hang Odd-Even Parking seaing curb-to-curb is crucial, lowing snow to pile up in up and call the number on sonally impacts the follow- because when snow is althese areas can create a your account statement, in ing areas: East/West streets lowed to accumulate in the hazard by forcing parked the phone book, or on the between Dakota and Plum street, the freeze-thaw cycars closer and closer company or agency’s official (Cedar & National); North/ cle can be very damaging to traffic as subsequent website to verify the authenSouth streets between to the pavement.

Gross’ announcement is in coordination with the recent announcement made by USDA Deputy Under Secretary for Rural Development Donald “DJ” LaVoy who announced that USDA is investing $42.5 million in 133 distance learning and telemedicine projects in 37 states and two U.S. territories. Applicants eligible for Distance Learning and Telemedicine grants include most State and local governmental entities, federally-recognized tribes, nonprofits, for-profit businesses and consortia of eligible entities. In April 2017, President Donald J. Trump established the Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity to identify legislative, regulatory and policy changes that could promote agriculture and prosperity in rural communities. In January 2018, Secretary Perdue presented the Task Force’s findings to President Trump. These findings included 31 recommendations to align the federal government with state, local and tribal governments to take advantage of opportunities that exist in rural America. Supporting the rural workforce was a cornerstone recommendation of the task force. To view the report in its entirety, please view the Report to the President of the United States from the Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity (PDF, 5.4 MB). In addition, to view the categories of the recommendations, please view the Rural Prosperity infographic (PDF, 190 KB). USDA Rural Development provides loans and grants to help expand economic opportunities and create jobs in rural areas. This assistance supports infrastructure improvements; business development; housing; community facilities such as schools, public safety and health care; and high-speed internet access in rural areas.

This week, congressional leaders announced they have reached an agreement on an anti-robocall bill that will give government agencies more ability to go after scammers. It will also require telecom companies to verify that phone numbers are real and block numbers for free.
