To promote both fun and safety, organizations throughout Columbia have been offering special Halloween events. The Columbia Department of Parks and Recreation hosts the “Tiger Night of Fun” -- an alternative event held at Hearnes Center Field House, where children of young families can be in a safe, supervised environment.
Spokesperson Janel Twehous said the department first offered its Halloween event 18 years ago when there were fears of tainted candy. Twehous said the department wanted to offer a safe alternative to door-to-door trick-or-treating.
Hello and welcome to Talking Politics, I’m Ryan Famuliner.
Less than a week, folks. That’s all the time you have to make sure you’re prepared for election day. KBIA’s been conducting in-depth interviews with political candidates for regional and statewide office in our studios, and we’re airing portions of those in these few days left leading up the election. We’re also posting the full length-interviews here on KBIA.org: we’re calling them “candidate conversations.”

Oakland Junior High 9th graders spent the last two months preparing for a mock political convention representing local, state, and national candidates.
