Enjoying Pioneer Journal columns It's wonderful to see Ethelyn Pearson back. Her wonderful, interesting renditions of local history put the "Pioneer" back in the Pioneer Journal. The varied and wonderful people who settled and built this community and county deserve to be recalled, and Ethelyn has a fine voice for rendering the memories.

A marketing company has acquired and is using two toll-free numbers which are very similar to Veterans Benefit Administration (VBA) toll-free numbers. The marketer is trying to get callers to sign up to receive a Walmart gift card and is asking for personal identification information (PII), to include credit card information. When asked if they are the VA, they reply vaguely, and explain that the VA is very busy and the call was directed to them. They don't say they are the VA, but if asked if they can help with VA benefits, they say yes.
