Pam & Brian Busswitz's Farm ...... ' 2.5 miles west of Westbroook, MN 601f Corner By Digger Phelps The weekend cooperated weather-wise and fifty-two men competed in the Rolling Hills Club Tournament. Mike Timm captured the men's championship for the first time. Mike's 36 hole score was 151 followed closely by Steve Severson with a 152 and Matt Hansen and Scott Huebert who both shot 154. Other flight winners were Aaron Theisen in the President's Flight; John Amundson in the First Flight, Scott Ruppert in the Second Flight; Craig Jans in the Third Flight; and Howard Erickson in the Fourth Flight. Appreciation to all of the gentlemen who competed over the weekend. With only one week left in the men's leagues there are several very tight races. Leaders are as follows: Early League 1 - Haar- Herding 91-1/2 Early League 2 - Beckman- Vosberg 92 Intermediate League Ross-Theisen 94-1/2 Generally play drops off significantly after school starts, but there are still two events to be held in the com- ing weeks with the 3-person scramble set for Saturday, September 10; and the 4-per- son set for Sunday, September 18. Call the clubhouse or come out to sign up. Please be sure that all members have some sort of handicap for these events. As the weather gets signifi- cantly cooler and the days get Shorter, remember that there are still lots of great days to play. It might be a good idea to always have more than one person, though, as the leaves are beginning to make find- ing a ball very difficult in some spots. Quote of the week - "Even if you aren't having an extra good day, always count your blessings. Be thankful you are able to be out on a beauti- ful course. Most people in the world don't have that opportunity." Fred Couples Keep your head down, and we'll see you on the course!!

Submitted photo August 27, 1981 00aquez f om W.ould be pet owners Bogota, Columbia arrived in Westbrook a week ago and 1 will spend the year staying nlpped by scams Even pet sellers risk get- ring bitten Pet lovers seeking new canine companions are often surprised, and some- times discouraged, to dis- cover how expensive a purebred puppy or dog can be. Purebreds can cost any- where from hundreds to thousands of dollars, not including veterinary, ship- ping and pedigree costs. That's why the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota (BBB) is cautioning consumers to watch out for classified ads offering pure- bred puppies for free or at prices that seem too good to be true. Earlier this month a clas- sifted ad ran in Penny Savers USA, an online por- tal for online classifieds and coupons, offering free Yorkshire terrier puppies - a breed that typically sells for $250-$2,000 apiece. The advertiser was listed as hav- ing locations in Minneapolis and Duluth. The consumer who reported this question- able ad to the BBB also stated that when she emailed the advertiser to express interest in adopting a puppy, they assured her they would cover all fees. However, shortly afterwards, when she received an email stat- ing that the breeders were at the airport ready to ship the puppies but needed $170 for "ownership transfer," she suspected the offer was a seam - and she was right. Puppy seams often hook people with offers of free puppies, collect money for bogus fees, such as shipping or 'ownership transfer,' and then never deliver the adver- tised puppies or dogs. Many of these seams originate in Africa, especially Cameroon. This May a stu- dent in Minnesota lost over $1,000 to one of these seams when they tried to purchase a puppy online. The busi- ness listed itself as having a Minneapolis address but was actually operating out of Cameroon. In some cases people sell- ing a puppy or dog are at risk of becoming the victim of a seam. An individual who placed an ad in the Duluth News Tribune to sell puppies contacted the BBB recently to report that they had been contacted by a scammer. The email the seller received from the scammer, who claimed to be hearing impaired and only able to communicate through text or email, was rife with grammatical errors, and offered to send "a certi- fied check or money" to cover the cost of the dog plus shipping costs. The scammer instructed the sell- er to cash the check imme- Wedding dance : honoring Catherine ::::i:: (Gundermann) and i. Michael Olsem will be held Saturday, September 10, 2011 at the Westbrook Community Center. diately, deduct the sale price and send the amount of the shipping fee to "the head ' office of the company that handles shipment via Western Union." Had the seller followed those instructions, they would have discovered the check was no good and they would have been out the shipping fees they had inadvertently wired to the scammer. The BBB offers the fol- lowing tips to avoid seams when you're looking to adopt or sell a pet: *Beware of ads with mul- tiple misspellings and gram- matical errors; many pet seams come from overseas, particularly Africa, so scam- mers usually do not have a good grasp on the English language. *When selling a pet, never deal with people who offer to send you a check for more than the requested amount under the conditions that you wire the extra money back to them or any of their affiliates, such as deliverers or handlers. A good rule to follow is never wire money to people you don't know. *If purchasing a pedi- greed pet, be sure the breed- er provides documentation of the parents' registration with the American Kennel Club. This ensures that the pet is in fact a legitimate pure-bred animal. It is then your responsibility to regis- ter your pet with the American Kennel Club. *After purchasing a pure- bred pet, keep all paperwork including receipts, proof of registration and proof of parents' registration. *Bring all pets to see a veterinarian immediately for an independent exami- nation, any necessary shots, and to establish a baseline for later health care. *When purchasing from a pet store, be sure to ask for a detailed history of the pet's origin. Unfortunately, some pet stores supply from unsafe and inhumane puppy mills. *The Humane Society offers healthy pets for free, but keep in mind that previ- ous ownership may influ- ence a pet's demeanor. Some adopted pets have been subject to abuse, neglect, or poor condition- ing. Be prepared to commit time and patience to helping your new pet adjust to his/ her home.
