Although the false UFL may indicate the page belongs to a finan- cial institution, it actually belongs to a scam artist, who is often located outside of the U.S. Protect Your Account 1) Beware of e-mail requests to verify your account information online. Your bank already knows your account number and does not need to verify it. Furthermore, in the event of a security breach or comput- er problem, most banks con- tact their customers in wilt- ing or by telephone to discuss the matter. 2) Contact your financial institution through trusted channels. If you are con- cerned about receiving such an e-mail, call your bank immediately at the publicly- listed phone number. 3) Don't be rushed by suspicious e-mails. Since many individuals businesses and non-profits rely on the financial viability of their account in a given day, the prospect of a temporarily frozen account and lost busi- ness that could result can be particularly worrisome. Remember, however, that the amount of money lost to such a scam is typically a much larger problem. Take your time to think logically and contact your financial insti- tution directly. 4) Use a URL-checker. Computer users may wish to access software which allows them to check the accuracy of a given URL. This will help you know who you are deal- ing with online. Concerns about Internet Scarns?

The museum is locat- ed at 812 Fourth Avenue, Windom, MN. Remick's Philosophy on Art: "In nty opinion, viewing and studying a work of art is much like meeting a stranger. If one can learn to know everything there is to know about this person the first five minutes with him, there is little interest in see- ing that person again. Therefore, I now aim to suggest rather than declare. By so doing, something is left to the viewer and the work of art remains somewhat of a mystery." Robert Rernick Find us on the Web at www.lyon- siouxpress. com Office The MN Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) has received a legal opinion from the MN Attorney General's Office on the con- stitutionality of permanent easements used in the state's conservation efforts. In the five-page docu- ment, it states that "the purpose of article I, section 15, of the MN Constitution is to prohibit a system of land ownership that results in a long-term obligation owed to the underlying landowner by the tenant of the land and that discour- ages good land management practices. RIM conserva- tion easements do not appear to fit the mold of the type of ownership arrange- ments this constitutional provision is intended to pre- vent. By their very terms, RIM conservation ease- ments are meant to encour- age good land management by taking marginal agricul- tural lands out of produc- tion. Recognizing this pur- pose, in combination with the fact that easements do not involve an agricultural use or place an ongoing obli- gation on the state to pro- vide rent payments or serv- ices to the underlying prop- erty owner, it does not appear the RIM conserva- tion easements fall within the prohibition set forth in the MN Constitution." Opponents of the state's Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) application raised the issue of the constitution- ality of RIM Reserve perma- nent easements. MN Governor Tim Pawlenty submitted a CREP applica- tion to the USDA this past fall to enroll 100,000 acres of marginal agricultural land and environmentally sensitive land in three regions of the state. The application pro- vides landowners with options to combine a 15-year Conservation Reserve Program contract with a 35- year or permanent Reinvest in MN Reserve easement. The application is targeted to achieve water quality enhancements for impaired waters; protect public water supplies; reduce flood dam- ages to agriculture and pub- lic infrastructure; and enhance fish and wildlife habitat. "This legal opinion should help put to rest any question about the constitu- tionality of RIM Reserve permanent easements," says non Harnack, BWSR executive director. The opinion is posted on BWSR's web site. See http:// A link is provided on the home page. With the vent sealed, the regulator doesn't work properly, and one of two things could happen. Gas pressure can build up inside the building, resulting in a fire or explosion.., or the lack of flow will result in loss of service and no heat. Either situation is serious. Outside meter and service regulator sets should be kept clear of dripping water and snow accumulation. Snow removed from driveways, walks, streets, or parking lots should not be placed near a meter set, service regulator or other gas facility. And if your regulator does become covered with ice, don't try to remove the ice by yourself, because you could damage the equipment. Call your natural gas suppli- er and have it done safely. Contractors, residents and building owners should exer- cise caution when removing ice and snow from areas around a building, as well, Neither the blown snow nor snow removal equipment, itself, should come in contact with util- ities. If you smell gas, lose service, or your appliances are mal- functioning, leave your home, go to a neighbor's, and call your natural gas supplier immediately.
