Real estate online scam taking place in the area
The Lyndonville Police has been made aware of a current online scam that is taking place in the area. It appears as though persons from out of country are finding local real estate listings. They are then re-posting these listings Craigslist as if they are their own. The residences are advertised at very low rates. Upon inquiring, a "rental agreement" is forwarded looking for the personal information. This is all done by way of email. The persons then look for a deposit in exchange for the "keys" to be mailed to the renter so they can view the residence on their own. One of the current phone numbers used is a 702 area code. These numbers come through an online exchange and actually originate out of country. If there is a question as to ownership of a residence, the Lyndonville Police urge people to check with the actual agent or with the town before sending any monies to online advertisements.

Animal Cares: To Bark Or Not To Bark
Barking is a form of communication for your dog. With it you will know if he senses an intruder or feels that his territory is being invaded. It may mean that he is welcoming a family member or friend. Perhaps he is alone and this is his way of letting you and the world know that he is lonely and needs attention. There may be other barking canines in the area and he is attempting to let them know that he is nearby. Or, if he is outdoors he may be taunted by passersby, other animals, or vehicles in the vicinity, and feel a sense of frustration at his inability to share their freedom. Any number of events may stimulate his urge to make noise. The important thing is to differentiate his warnings or greetings from simply nuisance noise.
