Halloween around the country.
Albany, New York, is requiring the 1800 sex offenders on parole to stay at home for Halloween.
In Annapolis, MD, specific sex offenders are not allowed to have contact with children.
In Birmingham, AL the county sheriff is requiring 35 sex offenders to come to the county courthouse on Monday night for a mandatory meeting.
In California about 2,000 paroled California sex offenders will spend a supervised night together.
BUT IN LEAVENWORTH, KANSAS, the Safe Halloween program, sponsored by the downtown merchants association, has been going on for 15 years.
In the bright daylight between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, groups of costumed children and adults trick-or-treat their way to 50 or so downtown businesses.
Don’t you love it when the simple ideas are the ones that work best?
