1. Bryant Powell gave a report on the landfill issue and on the annexation of Gold Canyon flap.  We will hear more from AJ Mayor Jeff Serdy next week.
2. Mike Dungan is trying to get U.S.Marshall David Gonzalez to talk to the club in April.
3. Mike Cowan reported that all the slots for the Lost Dutchman Rodeo are now filled.  But we need everyone who signed up to show up.
4. The drawing was worth $403 today.  Murray Hiatt won $10 but drew the king of clubs, so the joker is still in there.
The Board met following the February 15 weekly meeting. Some issues discussed/decided:
1. We want to give honorary Paul Harris awards to some local people for their contributions to our communities and exemplification of the ideals of Rotary.  The club has thousands of available PHF recognition points to do this.  Some names suggested: Paul Bourgeois (Fire Chief), Tom Kelly (Police Chief), Lucy Young (former AJ School board member), George Hoffman (former AJ City Manager), Ed Barker (AG/GC News editor), Tom Kollenborn (local historian). If club members have ideas for others, submit them to President Ed. It is a great way to increase visibility of our club.
2. The board authorized Jandi Morgan (our bookkeeper) to prepare the club's tax reports including filing a late 990EZ due in November.
3. Board agreed to have Carlo send an invoice for Jandi's service with the weekly lunch bill.
4. The club will ask for the $100 grant from District under the Rotary Public Image project.  We will use it to buy club advertising on Facebook.
We need to get more info out to the papers re our doings in the community.
5. The Board turned down a request to provide housing for a Rotary exchange student.  This program has gotten entangled in lots of bureaucratic procedures including some meant for the protection of the incoming student, but difficult to live up to on a daily basis.
6. Homann was asked to publish the procedure for how pictures can be posted on our Club Runner website. Lots of people take pictures at our events.
Paula Blessman gave me two corrections from my write up of her presentation.  One is that the experimental farm is 120 acres, not 20 acres.  More importantly, the date of the Rotary visit to South Africa is September 14-26,2017.  If interested in going on this trip, talk to Paula.  You will be most welcome.
Harvey Clark introduced our speaker for the day, Brian Brotschi from Symantec.  His topic was "How to Stay Safe Online".
Brian said trust is the big issue in being online.  Do you believe the person you are dealing with is who they say they are?  Why do you believe they are or might not be
He gave us 5 suggestions to be safe online.
1. Look for the green stripe validating your service provider - never give out personal information if it is not there. (I have never seen it on my computer - editor)
2. Use your bank's app on your smart phone - it is highly encrypted
3. Use two stage authorization - passwords alone are notoriously easy to crack.  A second authorization such as a picture or a fingerprint or question is good policy for the website provider.
4. Password procedures - use strong passwords - long with caps, numbers and symbols.  Don't use the same password for different accounts - it makes more of you information accessible if the PW is hacked. Consider using a PW vault like Last Pass.
5. Use a chip credit card - replace you swipe credit cards with this new, more secure technology.
