I recently had a friend get ripped off — to the tune of $1,200 — in a utilities scam. A special presentation on telephone, mail and Internet scam protection with Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller might not be the sexiest event, but it can help save you hassle, pain and loss. The presentation is set for 10 to 11:30 a.m. April 1 at the Four Seasons Retirement Center, 1901 Taylor Road. If you want to go, today is the last day to make reservations.

An informed voter is the best kind, so take in the Candidates Forum 6 p.m. April 6 at the Bartholomew County Public Library, 536 Fifth St. Candidates for Bartholomew County commissioner and county council will present their positions on key environmental and energy issues and answer questions.
