My husband was working on the RV access side of our yard on the 2800 block of Avalon and mistakenly left out a quality battery charger. He realized this within 10 minutes but it was already gone. If you or a neighbor picked up this item could you please return it (if you have the battery charger, naturally you know where you picked it up, but if you've forgotten e-mail an administrator and we'll prompt your memory--it's the same house where the fence was vandalized). We understand that some people leave items (treasures) for others to take as needed but this was not one of those times. Please feel free to leave on our porch, we would be so grateful.

I visited the Rite Aid, once yesterday and again today. On both occasions, I was approached by a black male in his late teens/early twenties, (each time it was a different person, but the same basic description). The first time the individual said he was raising money for an Elk Grove basketball team, and showed me a piece of folded paper with a name and number on it. The name was Patricia, and the number was ***-**** (Patricia probably doesn't need her number openly published). I told the individual I would give Patricia a call, and walked into the store. Patricia, who answered the phone told me that it was a scam, and to call the police. I informed an employee, and she went outside but the individual had left. I also called the sheriff, but they said that if he was gone, there was nothing they could do. Today when I encountered the different individual, I told him that he should leave before I called the sheriff, which he did. The piece of paper had 6-7 names and phone numbers, apparently from people who have already "contributed."
Be aware and do not fall for this.
