Massive ID Theft, DeLima Returns to Arroyo, Lincoln Draws Big

Here are some stories you may have missed in last week's Walnut Creek Patch.

Abe Lincoln by the Numbers
The Lincoln exhibit at the library averaged 76 people per day, proving that the 16th president still has massive drawing power. Did you go?

Snow Frosts Mt. Diablo
Oh yeah, it was cold this week. Temps hit 34 degrees, which would probably be laughable for mid-westerners or east coasters right now, but for us, it meant snow on our local mountain.

Girl Scout Cookie Gold Mine
The Girl Scouts have found that the Walnut Creek BART Station is the place to be if one wants to sell cookies. Lots and lots of cookies.

Police Probe Theft of Mercedes-Benz Customers' Data
Thieves broke into a safe at the Mercedes dealership and stole 2,000 customer records, which include Social Security numbers, addresses, and other personal information that can be used to open accounts, acquire credit cards, etc. 

Sports Lounge Takes Nightclub's Spot
Matt DeLima is back at the same location as his now-closed Vice Ultra Lounge on Arroyo Way, but this time he's opening a sports bar/restaurant.

Call each of the credit bureaus and tell them to put a freeze on your file. You once applied for credit at WC Benz and you know their files were stolen. Then, write to your congressperson and tell them to end this practice of throwing credit at people who can write down a name and social security number.
