A proposal that would prevent students from being discriminated against for expressing their religious beliefs is headed for floor votes in both chambers of the Legislature. The legislation would require school districts to develop a so-called student speaker policy for school officials to follow. Officials with the State Department of Education say the proposal should be constitutionally defensible as long as a school is not deemed to be promoting a particular religion

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Department is warning residents of a couple of different scams targeting citizens in our area. According to officials with the Sheriff's department, one scam is that you have won $1,000.00 from Wal-mart however you just need to send in the taxes on the amount to a specific address or call a phone number (which is out of the country) and give them your credit card number to hold out the taxes and the check will be on the way to you. The other scam is sent to you by a text message or email that directs you to a website to enter personal information. These are scams and YOU are the target. Scam tracking site ScamBook.com has logged more than 2,000 complaints in the last few days alone from consumers who fell for the age-old $1,000 Wal-mart gift card trick. These sites are not owned, operated by, or affiliated with Wal-mart. Any site can be used for this scam and users are often asked for private personal information including credit card numbers or social security numbers. Providing this type of information is very likely to lead to identity theft or credit card fraud.
