Free Freeze

The credit bureaus will no longer be able to charge you for placing a freeze on your credit report as of next Friday, 21 Sep.

So set a reminder, calendar appointment, or whatever it takes, because you will no longer have cost as an excuse for not taking the time to protect yourself from identity theft when it comes to some lowlife obtaining credit in your name.

Fur-ternity Leave

 

Connor McCarthy, who works at Nina Hale in Minnesota, sought permission from his boss to work from home when he got a new dog, a goldendoodle named Bentley.

Nina Hale, a marketing company in Minnesota, introduced “fur-ternity leave” to its benefits for its 85 employees, allowing new pet owners to work from home for a week while their dog or cat adapts to a new home.

Come On Down to Downtown

Furnace Brook Wesleyan Church has come up with an idea to encourage visitors to come to downtown Brandon. On the second Sunday of the month, the church will begin to hold services in an innovative new location: the public dining space next to the Center Street Bar.

Tate said the services will last about an hour and will include coffee and pastries from Café Provence. However, Tate said those looking to pair their prayers with a pint will have to look elsewhere.

“The bar doesn’t open until four in the afternoon anyways so that won’t be an issue,” he said.
