Beware of Skimming Devices on Gas Pumps

Last year "skimming devices" were found on gas pumps in the Dayton area.  These devices record and transmit credit card information to a criminal who then uses it for their own purposes.  Recently numerous skimmers were uncovered in Michigan.  Those arrested for the crime were from Ohio.  There have been no reports in our area yet of the skimming devices, but read Ann Norman's story at CLEVELAND.COM to be aware of the situation.  



Seals Design Contest Open to HS Students

Every time you pump gas or purchase items from a store in Medina County you can shop with confidence knowing the electronic devices registering your sale have been inspected and sealed.  Know how you can tell?  The seal attached to the device.  These seals are created & designed by high school students throughout Medina County and each one features the artists name on the sticker.  If you’re a high school student you could design one of the winning seals this year if you submit your entry by November 27th!  Read Ann Norman's full story at

Keep Your
Pet Safe This Halloween

Who can resist dressing their pet up for Halloween?  Some of them like it - others not so much!  Just be aware they should be supervised the entire time they're in costume.  See this and other tips at PATCH. 


Notice a subtle change to the Update this week?  Hint:  We're putting it out more often on Thursday than Friday!

If you needed any motivation to get outside and enjoy the fast disappearing fall weather, hopefully last Saturday was it!  Unfortunately this Saturday looks like more of the same.  But there are seasonal fall events going on everywhere throughout the county this weekend!  I hope to get to the Chatham Apple Butter Festival and will be working at the Pioneers in the Park.  Hope to see you out and about!
