Promote safe neighborhoods

The Hobart Police Department thanks everyone who participated in this year’s National Night Out Against Crime at the Hobart Community Pool.

Contact the HPD Public Relations Department to start a Neighborhood Watch group at (219) 942-1125, ext. 1070 or jgrennes @ cityofhobart.org.

There are many money wiring scams active right now, police report.

Wiring money is like sending cash. Scams alert would-be victims that they have won a sum of money but must pay the taxes on it first by sending in a specified amount of money, or scare families that their adult child or grandchild child has been injured or arrested and needs money. Do not send money to people you do not know, warn police.

Blues concert this week

Hobart City Improvement Committee’s summer concert season continues at 7 p.m. Thursdays at the Revelli Band Shell in Festival Park, 111 E. Old Ridge Road.  This week's entertainer is Samuel Lozada with Mo' Town Blues, along with free massages by Accord.

Meet The Beatles, a tribute to The Beatles, follows Aug. 29 and the last concert of the year features Bob Heckler, The Piano Man, on Sept. 5.
