Arrest threats for fines owed a scam

According to a press release issued July 24 from Lake County Sheriff Don Bell, his office has received numerous calls from citizens claiming that they have been contacted and threatened with arrest for fines/money owed. A fraudulent caller is “spoofing” the number that belongs to the detention center to make these calls. The release reads: “Please don’t fall for this scam. The Sheriff’s Office is not making these threats or demands of citizens.”


Horsemen host program to discuss equine therapy 

RONAN —  On Tuesday, Aug. 7, Mission Valley Back Country Horsemen will hold their monthly meeting at the VFW in Ronan at 7:30 p.m. We are very excited to have Shaunda Albert of Ronan do a program on equine therapy. Last year she and Amanda Held of Ohio, hosted a three-day retreat in Pablo. Held states, “A horse’s non-verbal communication and its ability to sense emotions makes it a good therapeutic helper.” Equine therapy can make participants emotionally stronger, less stressed, and able to address issues that they may not even realize they have. Horses can help people feel comfortable so they can start talking. Equine therapy and retreats include children in foster care and people with addiction issues, and veterans. We encourage the community and VFW members to come and explore what this equine therapy is all about. We hope to see you all there. Last year’s November 2017 issue of the Valley Journal had a large article entitled, “Horse retreat helps people dig into their subconscious thoughts.”
