IRS Phone Scam

The Bullhead City Police Department is warning the public about a tax scam.     Victims nationwide have reported receiving a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and stating they owe taxes. Victims are then instructed to pay using a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer. The scammers threaten those who refuse to pay with arrest, deportation or loss of a business or driver’s license.  According to the Treasury Inspector General for Taxpayer Administration, the IRS usually first contacts people by mail – not by phone – about unpaid taxes. And, the...

Back-to-School Safety  

  It’s that time of year again… congested morning traffic, school busses stopping frequently and kids scattered through crosswalks. It’s back to school and the Bullhead City Police Department would like to start off the new school year safely.  Over the summer, motorists have been used to driving the normal speed limit, but people need to be aware of the change. Children will be excited getting to and from school while using the intersections and crosswalks, so drivers should watch the road carefully for pedestrians and kids on bicycles. Officers will be out enforcing the 15 mile per hour school zone speed limit. Parents should also talk to their children about the rules of the road. Pedestrians walk against traffic and bicyclists ride with the traffic. For safety reasons, it’s important to wear a helmet while riding a bicycle and children should lock up their bikes when they arrive at school. In case children get on the wrong school bus, it’s a good idea to teach them their phone number, address and parents’ names. Parents may also want to practice walking with their children to school or to their bus stop so they are familiar with the route and the safe intersections to cross. Motorists need to be patient when following school busses and remember, vehicles traveling in both directions, must stop for school busses that display flashing lights and an extended...

Aquarius Team Members Volunteer to Help One Local Family in Need

LAUGHLIN, NV – July 11, 2014 – One Fort Mohave, AZ couple has received some much needed repairs to their home thanks to the nonprofit organization, American Center for Educational Opportunities (AMCEO) and volunteers from Aquarius Casino Resort, who were able to help them through an outreach home repair program called The Green Cactus Project.  Walter and Rochelle Voyles were in dire need of repairs to their house. Due to water damage, new bathroom and kitchen fixtures and an exterior paint job were needed, as well essential repairs to their windows throughout the house.  On Father’s Day weekend, AMCEO and Aquarius team members supplied building materials and volunteer labor to make sure the repairs were made.Walter Voyles served during the Vietnam War and has little to no resources.  Due to his failing eyesight and lack of resources to fix terribly needed repairs to his home, AMCEO, which is a nonprofit organization that Aquarius Casino Resort supports, reached out to Voyles. “We knew this family was in serious need of some help in fixing up their home so we knew we had to reach out to them,” said AMCEO Executive Director Ginger Gates. “This is not a glamorous project, but we hoped it would make a world of difference for their family.”AMCEO is a nonprofit organization that provides community outreach and education programs to low-income rural seniors who are service connected...
