Identity theft in Lamar? I was shocked. But there were three listings of personal documents being stolen over the radio today. One of those in Lamar, detailed documents being stolen contained identification papers.
As the 5 O’clock whistle blows I note the local news and listen to Erik Stone’s familiar voice talking about local events including the Hospice Barn Dance and wonder if there’s more to the local info theft than just documents. Has someone here locally already lost identification docs to a local theft? Have people here lost their identity or cash money to local thieves?
I’m not so naive as to believe that identity theft has missed this small town on the high plains, but I was hoping it wasn’t so close as the local police beat.
Interesting events have been happening in and around Lamar, or so I’ve heard. It seems the gossip mongers are trollying up to the bar, let’s hear it for gossip, the good the bad and the ugly. There’s more to say, and be said, but should it be heard?
It’s interesting that I come home to find the solace, but there’s little of it here. With all the gossip, it sounds like home town is doomed too. A meth lab shut down by the local PD… At least they’re on the job. Glad to hear the Sheriff Department and the Police Department have unified forces to accomplish great things! Sounds like the community is struggling a bit financially, is it really a financial issue or just a banking issue? It would be good to know the answer to that question, before any further “news” hits the streets.
The Lamar Ledger changes publishers again. Good luck to Sue in her new endeavors and to Mary in her new position. It should be fun working with the ledger again…
Still thinking about the City Charter and the new proposed amendments – I still recommend the voters in Lamar don’t pass the amendments incorporating new position definitions for City Administrator and other City Personnel. The old charter spells out some definitions and provisions we need to maintain. About that accounting issue that needs clarification, perhaps more clarification is needed before changes are made?
City of Lamar should be disclosing details at the council meetings, if you care to attend.
