    Mil, do you think drug dealers control the street lights? If so, ask that the control box for your area be put on a 10' pole with a separate padlock (as opposed to a common area key padlock). This worked for us. It took years to figure it out.

  • Well the lights are on now. However about 45 minutes ago they were not on. But I saw a crew out working on California.

Warning-EZ Pass Spoof

EB people. Got a EZ Pass spoof in my email box today. I called and the Illinois Tollway person said that it was definately an illegal email. Be careful. They ask you to download something. It could be a virus or some other malicious file.

  • gpblight 15 Yr East Garfield Resident

    EB people. Have gotten 2 suspicious telephone calls (soundling like from India). It says that there is a "problem with my windows machine"...it is a live caller. I believe this to be a malicious call intending to do harm. Be careful. I have gotten 3 of these calls. What is the CPD doing about cyber crime? They need to do more.
