Santa Paws is coming to town

Will your pet get a treat or a lump of coal for Christmas? Let them make their case to Santa Paws when he comes to town from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 18 at Ideal Office Machines, 110 Main Street in Downtown Searcy. Santa Paws is brought to pet owners by members of the Searcy High School Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). 

Santa Paws, also known as Saint Zach Langley, will be making his seventh visit to White County pets.

“Everyone needs to bring out their animals. FBLA has been doing this for a long time and I want this to be the best year yet since I will be Santa Paws,” said Langley, who also serves as the Searcy FBLA Chapter president.

“I am looking forward to meeting everyone’s pets. I had hoped to be asked to be Santa Paws. It is something that my friends have done in past years. They had a great time while helping worthwhile organizations.

Searcy Police warn of phone scams

It is important to be aware of these scams to protect yourself from being a victim. Most recently, the Searcy Police Department has received complaints regarding phone calls soliciting money for the local Fraternal Order of Police.

While Arkansas has the Arkansas State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police, there is no local chapter in Searcy. Here are some tips to protect yourself from scams:

- Get the organization's contact information

- Do not give your credit card number or bank account information over the phone to someone who has contacted you

- Call your local police department to verify the legitimacy of the organization before you donate money

- Do not let the caller intimidate you into giving information immediately. The legitimate callers will not mind that you are verifying their information

- A quick internet search can reveal a great deal of information about charities and whether they use cold calling to raise funds
