IT HAPPENED IN SPRINGFIELD HISTORY

img017

Charles F. Calhoun was a prominent resident of Springfield. When Springfield was platted in 1882, he assisted in driving in the stakes that marked the boundaries and streets. Mr. Calhoun was born in Illinois in 1862. He had taken care of himself since he was eight years old but managed to graduate from Leroy High School in Ohio. He came to Sarpy County at the age of 15 years old and worked on a farm. In 1882 he left Springfield to work in a bank at Fort Robinson. Two years later he returned to Springfield and found employment at the Spearman General Store. Later when the Spearman Bank opened he was hired as a bank cashier. Mr. Calhoun was a progressive citizen of Springfield. He presided as the president of the school board and was a prominent member of the Congregational Church. He married Miss Etta J. Spearman and had four sons and two daughters. Mr. Calhoun also played the important role of historian by writing the “50 Years History of Springfield” in commemoration of the first fifty years of the town. This historical account was published in the 1931 Springfield Monitor. Today we are grateful to Mr. Calhoun for recording his memories of the early years in Springfield, Nebraska.

UTILITY CUSTOMERS BEWARE, SCAM CALLS ARE ON THE RISE

Omaha Public Power District customers are reporting a spike in scam phone calls today. The utility has received more than 60 reports of these calls so far today, and that number continues to climb.

 This long-running scam targets utilities here in our area and across the nation. Calls tend to pick up steam several times a year. Right now, scammers may be trying to take advantage of customers who are feeling vulnerable due to the pandemic.

 Their tactics are typically the same – falsely claiming to represent the utility and trying to convince customers they owe money. They can be quite aggressive in their tone, instructing customers to use a pre-paid card to settle up. They threaten to disconnect service if customers do not pay. They often use “spoofing” technology so that caller identification appears to show a legitimate OPPD phone number.

 None of these calls are from the utility. Our call center representatives would never cold-call a customer demanding immediate payment. If customers were truly overdue on their bills to the point where service could be disconnected, they would receive written notice first. Authentic utility representatives never request payment via a purchased payment card.

 Never give personal or financial information to a stranger during an unsolicited phone call. If such a person should appear at their door unannounced, claiming to work for the utility, ask for identification or verification. OPPD employees always carry identification. Failure to produce identification is a tip-off to the customer that something is wrong.

 Customers who have questions about their bill status or in need of financial assistance should call us at 402-536-4131 in the Omaha calling area or 877-536-4131 outside of the Omaha area. We want to work with customers to set up workable payment plans or connect them with assistance resources. Financial help is available through the state, local organizations, and also through CARES Act funding. Call us or visit oppd.com to learn more.
