Bugs browse around on sunny summer days

The humid weather has been almost unbearable to enjoy the past few days, but this tiny red and black bug, very similar to a lady bug, mosies around on a sweet-smelling flower over the weekend. A little spider, on the right side of the lower flower, seems to be creeping up behind him for a snack.



Sheriff's Dept. warns about internet scam

Overton County Sheriff's Department is warning all citizens that several internet scams are active.

Two scams the Sheriff's Dept. named are a Nigeria-based oil company scam and a scam involving lonely females looking for help in their business.

According to the Sheriff's Dept., both of these scams promise money in return for help in cashing money orders and checks, which turn out to be counterfeit and make the victims responsible for both civil and criminal liabilities.

The Sheriff's Dept. can be notified of scams by calling (931) 823-5635.
