I recently received a call from a neighborhood leader in the Waynedale area regarding the latest "scam" being perpetuated on local residents. I'm told that someone has attempted to pressure citizens into paying several hundred dollars "up front" for removal of dead trees. After accepting payment the supposed tree trimmer disappears without doing the job. Keep your eyes open for this shyster. Don't give him a cent and definitely call the police if he shows up on your doorstep. Also, be sure...

FROM THE DESK OF SENATOR DAVID LONG

The 2002 Legislative Session, by law, ended on March 14th. By now, most of the readers of this column understand that the Governor's proposed tax package designed to deal with the serious State budget problems did not pass.

The issue of crime in our community continues to generate discussion and headlines. While crime rates are much lower than they were a decade ago, or during 1997-1998 when the incidence of crime last peaked, we need to make more progress in crime fighting. Strong families, good jobs, and a solid educational system are important in preventing criminal activity.

Some Fort Wayne residents go to work every day, Monday through Friday, sometimes on the weekends and sometimes at night. Many have children, and many are single parents. Despite their hard work, they still find that they are barely able to make ends meet. There is a way to reward these low-income working families.
