-----

- Officer Dave McCranie with the Tallahassee Police Department says that the City of Tallahassee does not have plans to change Trick or Treat to Saturday.

-----

- The Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office announces the return of its annual “Safe Halloween Trick or Treat Carnival.” This event was started to provide a safe environment for our children to have a good time, without them having to walk the streets, door to door, seeking treats. Over the past couple of years, funds have been low and we could not provide this environment for our community. Over 5,000 children attended this event in 2007 and we are expecting this number to double for this year. Our children are our future and it is up to us to ensure their safety and positive interactions. The event is scheduled for October 30, 2010 from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM. At the Lowndes County Civic Center (Fair Grounds) on U.S. Hwy. 84 East.

Sheriff Prine and his staff have agreed that this year all proceeds will be given to the Lowndes Drug Action Council (LODAC). Their agency offers drug prevention, education and treatment for children and their parents. Most of their referrals come through the school system; unfortunately, some are received through the courts. They offer many programs for the children of our community, namely, the Expulsion Reversal Program, a program designed to help children, that have been expelled from school, to re-enter the school system; the Stolen Moment Program, an anti-theft program designed to educate and rehabilitate juvenile theft offenders; and the CART program, which stands for Creating a Responsible Thinker. LODAC is a vital part of this community and any help given to them is also help given to the community.

- WCTV is holding a "Meet and Treat" day on Saturday, Oct. 30th from 9AM to 2PM. Come out to our studio on Halstead Boulevard and meet your favorite WCTV Personality!

    I have an idea... lets move Christmas to a different day next time it isn't convenient. Holidays are in place on certain days for reasons... Keep them the way they were meant to be! The kids in religious households can attend services and trick or treat... I don't see why the two should conflict. As for school on Monday... simple rules are fine. Most neighborhoods cut of trick or treat hours just after dark... My kids will likely be in bed by 10pm at the latest. They can have one piece of candy a day till the weekend and then let them stay up all night and be pigs! My point is.. why change a holiday celebrated by thousands of families? Isn't it just simpler to slightly modify your own plans? Had the holiday been moved many families would not have known... and many children would have missed out... Families like mine!

    Lakeshore Estates is very trick-or-treat friendly, although there are usually not a lot of kids, so it's a good place to come.

    By surrounding cities having trick-or-treat on Saturday, some children will get to do it twice. Once in nearby cities on Saturday and then to Tallahasee to do it again on Sunday! Halloween will be twice as nice for some this year.

    I think the City of Tallahassee should declare the official day for (2010) "Trick or Treating" should be on October 30, 2010. Other surrounding areas have been considerate to our children and not to mention the fact they have school on "Monday" morning.

    It seems only seasonable to move "Trick or Treating" to Saturday night. Sunday is a day to worship and rest. Children have school on Monday and should be in bed and well rested on Sunday evening!!
