Power Surges Addressed Tuesday

A few power surges around Valentine on Tuesday led the City of Valentine to a brief power outage around 2:30pm.  Areas affected by the planned power outage was Bias and Green Streets west to the Catholic church, and several streets running north and south of 6th Street.  The brief power outage was planned in an effort to fix the power surge issue affecting residents.  The City of Valentine thanks you for your patience as they solved the problem.


Another Scam Reported to KVSH

A listener informed KVSH about a scam that came through the mail disguised as a real estate property deed notice. The listener checked things out with the courthouse and no one was aware of the service. The false document lists a piece of property on file at the cherry county courthouse and asks for money in exchange for a copy of the current grant deed and property assessment profile. They ask that you pay by phone using a toll free number or online or by mail. Once again this is reportedly as scam using the postal service for delivery. The documents may look official, but do not respond.



Volunteers at New Golf Course


Work is beginning to pick up on the new community golf course for Valentine. A reminder that any volunteers that work on the project need to a signed waiver form on file at city hall. The waivers are available at city hall or at the studios of KVSH Radio. Volunteers might be asked to do everything from manual labor to operating some equipment.

There will most likely be some organized work days at the new course and some volunteers might be called on an 'as needed' basis. Please make sure that you have the signed waiver at the city before working on the site. All volunteer labor is appreciated.
