The American Civil Liberties Union is suing the city of Defiance in northwest Ohio, alleging the city's ban on sidewalk messages shouldn't apply to chalk messages and violates free speech rights.
The city prohibits disfiguring sidewalks by painting words, names or ads on them. The issue arose last year when members of an Occupy protest group were threatened with arrest for writing messages in chalk on sidewalks.
The ACLU's Ohio chapter argued in its federal lawsuit Tuesday that the law is unconstitutional and asked a judge to stop its enforcement. The group also argued the law shouldn't apply to chalk because chalk's not permanent.
Toledo law director David Williams said he hadn't seen the complaint. He previously has said the ban has nothing to do with the messages' content.
Move over, silver.
After more than a decade as the world's favorite car color, silver is falling in popularity to white. PPG Industries, the leading supplier of automotive paints, says 25 percent of the vehicles it supplied in the 2013 model year were white. Silver and black tied for second, with 18 percent each.
Apple Inc., with its white stores and slim white gadgets, made white a high-tech color. The variety of whites — from flat shades to creamy pearls — is also contributing, says Jane Harrington, PPG's manager of automotive color styling.
Harrington says automakers are currently scouting colors for the 2016 and 2017 model years. She predicts jewel-like colors such as rich greens and deep purples will be popular. Grays and browns are also gaining.
