Voter intimidation. Plans to challenge the legitimacy of voters at the polls this year based, presumably, on how they look could lead to a mess on Election Day. If the idea is to intimidate and frustrate the many first-time voters coming to the polls (a group that should be celebrated), this move is anti-democracy and anti-American.
Scary stuff. We’re not making this up: The Marion County Health Department’s Halloween safety tips for children 12 and older included this: “Teach your child his or her phone number.” Our safety tip is this: If your 12 and older kid doesn’t know his phone number yet, don’t let him leave the house!
Clean idea. Volunteers can help beautify the White River on Oct. 30 from noon until 6 p.m. The effort, organized by the Hoosier Environmental Council, starts at the Riviera Club (5640 N. Illinois) and ends at the Lake Indy boat dock just south of 30th Street on White River Parkway East. To sign up or get more info, call HEC at 685-8800.
