AKRON CITY COUNCIL MEMBER SEEKING NOMINATION FOR SENATE SEAT 

(Akron) — An Akron city council member is seeking the Republican party’s nomination for the State Senate District 3 seat. Alex Pick recently was re-elected to the Akron city council, but he believes, if nominated by the Republican nominating committee, he will be able to perform both jobs.

Pick explains his interest in the State Senate position.

Pick says he will be able to draw upon his experience as a city council member for issues he would face as a state legislator.

The Akron Republican says if elected to the State Senate, he would like to work
on ways to reduce regulations for small businesses.

Pick says he has been a life-long resident of the Senate 3 district, so he understands the people, and the issues.

POLICE WARN OF NEW CREDIT CARD DATA HACKS AT K-MART & SONIC IN SIOUX CITY

If you used your bank or credit card at K-mart or Sonic in the last several months, you will want to keep an eye on your accounts.

Sioux City Police Department have received numerous reports of unauthorized credit card transactions from approximately twenty residents.

Investigators say their card information was acquired during a data breach of Kmart between September, 2016 through April of 2017.

A second data breach also occurred with Sonic from April through October of this year.

Police say there is a new trend in credit card cloning and theft.
The card cloners can see the location the card was issued from, then travel there and make and cancel an internet transaction to insure the card is active,

They then make a small purchase, usually for a prepaid card.
This does not meet the requirements for most fraud alert systems.

You’re advised to check your accounts daily for any strange activity.

POLK COUNTY DETECTIVE ACCUSED OF PUNCHING MAN IN AN ANKENY BAR 

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – A detective for the Polk County Sheriff’s Office has been accused of punching a man in an Ankeny bar.

Court records say 49-year-old John Negrete has pleaded not guilty to assault. His trial is scheduled to begin Dec. 13, but the prosecution is asking for a continuance.

A criminal complaint says Negrete punched the man at least twice in the face on Sept. 22 at the Yankee Clipper. A woman who lives with Negrete, 51-year-old Tereasa Sunberg, also has pleaded not guilty to punching a woman at the bar. Sunberg’s trial is scheduled to begin Jan. 8.

Authorities say the two people punched are related.

Negrete has worked more than 20 years for the Sheriff’s Office.
