"The O.C." has its summer season finale Tuesday at 9 p.m. and returns later this fall in a new time slot: 9 p.m. Thursday.

Channel 13's "Black Horizons" returns for its 35th season Friday at 10 p.m. This season the show will look at the city's budget crisis and its impact on the African-American community.

Safety first

Keeping Kids Safe, a campaign designed to teach children good safety practices, will make a stop at four True Value Hardware events in the next two months.

The program features experts in fire prevention and rescue operations. Attractions include Pluggie the Fire Hydrant, a remote-controlled robot. Kids will learn how to escape from a smoke-filled bedroom in the Fire Safety House, a traveling exhibit that simulates a house fire and was created by the Bethel Park and Upper St. Clair fire departments. They also meet search and rescue dogs, learn how to make 9-1-1 calls and get activity books to take home.

The campaign is presented by HealthAmerica and Clear Channel Communications.

Keeping Kids Safe will be at the following locations:

Today from noon to 3 p.m. at Bellevue True Value Safety, Health and Fitness Carnival in Andrew Bayne Memorial Park, Bellevue;

Sept. 27 from noon to 2 p.m. at True Value Hardware, Harmony;

Oct. 11 from noon to 2 p.m. at Able True Value Home Center, North Versailles;

Oct. 18 from noon to 2 p.m. at South Hills True Value Home Center, Mt. Oliver.
