MARCH 26, 2010 Bancroft THIS WEEK NEWS Police warn of telemarketing and email fraud SUBMITTED The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), in cooperation with the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC), is notifying the public of a recent increase in the reported number of fraud attempts using the traditional emergency scam. The emergency scam has operated for years as a telemar- keting scam throughout North America. Fraudsters contact potential victims while posing as a family member or friend in urgent need of cash. Often the scenario involves an accident or arrest while travelling abroad, with a request that cash be sent through a money transfer company, such as Western Union or Money Gram. In the past, fraudsters have successfully targeted grandparents, giving the scam its nickname ?the grandparents scam?. In a recent variation of this scam, compromised contact lists from hijacked email accounts are used to send the potential victim an urgent email request for money from a ONE DAY ON ...

MARCH 26, 2010 Bancroft THIS WEEK Scott Scott highlights that the changes that he made to the broadly focused governance structure should not be taken as a negative reflection on the work that was done by previous directors under the old structure. He says that with the hard work of the past, QHC would not exist resulting in even more financial and local struggles from health care. Without the assistance of each and every region, he says that the ever increasing cost that stems from necessary health care advancements in technology and skills, local management would be not be able to offer the service necessary to the people in the areas. For Scott, that is a change that has been addressed throughout his yearlong review of QHC operations; the fact that the past is going quickly and there is a need to adapt towards the future. ?No matter what an organization does, it is always going to be a challenge to have the right amount of money in order to offer quality services that are ...

. PAGE 9 ? MARCH 26, 2010 Bancroft THIS WEEK Living a lie Steve Galea Well, Tiger Woods finally confessed that he was living a lie. And whether the public forgives him or not, I think this was a healing moment for us all. Though I haven?t really been following his story, I did manage to catch a sound bite on the radio. In that very public admission, among other transgressions, he admitted that he was addicted to what, if I heard correctly, he called cereal adultery. That hit home. Inspired by Tiger?s brave admission, I have decided to own up too. This morning, instead of eating my normal serving of Raisin Bran, I had a dalliance with a bowl of Fruit Loops. For this, I am deeply sorry. First of all, I?d like to take ownership of this behaviour ? it was all me. Next, I?d like to apologize to my wife. After all, though Fruit Loops has a way of making a man feel younger and more alive, it does not provide the much needed nutrition, or legendary regularity, that comes from a monogamous rela ...
