crime fighting tool to the
public.
Lafayette County Sher-
iff Carson McCall said
he, as well as his entire
staff, are excited about
this opportunity to be
able to keep the citizens
of Lafayette County bet-
ter informed on crime
fighting efforts. "The
Lafayette County Sher-
iff's Office is dedicated
to providing a safe arnd


secure community. Our
goal is to improve the
overall quality of life for
all Lafayette County resi-
dents. we will accom-
plish this goal by reduc-
ing crime, reducing the
fear of crime, and pro-
viding assistance during
any and all emergency
.situations," McCall said.
According to McCall
this website will allow
the community to view
photos as well as infor-
mation on current and
past drug arrests in the
county. There is also a
page called the "Sheriff's
Comer" where he will
have news and updates
as the information be-
comes available. He said
this section will be up-
dated regularly.

is a work-in-progress,

France and Trimble

exchange nuptials
Ashleigh France and Steve Trimble were married Oct.
13. The wedding was at the home of the bride's parents,
Dr. Jim and Claire France. It was a lovely setting on the
banks of the Suwannee River.
The bride was escorted by her parents. Her dad sang
"You are my Sunshine" as she came down the isle. Steve
continued with a chorus as Ashleigh was presented to
him.
The ceremony was officiated by Rev. Terry Cranford.
Charlene Trimble, mother of the groom, carried the
bride's ring and Claire the grooms, which were crafted
by Steve.
Brothers of Steve, Charles and Richard, along with
Ashleigh's siblings, Craig, Scott and Jennifer participated.
A luncheon reception was held on the grounds with
many guests from Tallahasee, Alabama. and Mayo at-
tending.
In the evening the happy couple attended Ashleigh's
class reunion. A honeymoon camping and hiking trip to
the Shenandoah Mountains is planned.
The couple will make their home in Tallahassee.

Q.A. Winburn, Jr.

Jeanie O'steen married a *_ ,
nt from Taylor by the .
g.me of "Red Padgett."
'Mr. Padgett, a decorated
WWII veteran was quite a -
popular fellow and was a
succe-';ful businessman
and farmer. he had his own ."
way of making himself
populu with the buyers at
the tobacco market and would fete them at a big
splash with lots of good food and drink I am told.
When I read of his demise a few years back I was re-


barrel of the BB gun right on her big toe and let it go. I
was immediately aware that I had inflicted harm on this
friend as she let out a whoop and came off that tree and
took after me. I am thankful for the endowment of a pair
of fast feet on that occasion as I was able to stay ahead of
her long enough to make it to a safe distance. I later
begged forgiveness and she never seemed to hold it
against me and I believe that she forgave me as we con-
tinued on friendly terms.
The last time I saw this dear lady was at the funeral of
Jimmie Dale in Perry about 25 years ago. And lastly, go-


was a widow and I don't have any other knowledge
about them other than the occasion of seeing Gene a few
years ago in Jacksonville when the Mayo baseball team
was playing there in a tournament.
I remember that Wilbur and Franklin moved to Jack-
sonville early on. My grandaddy owned that house and
rented it out and there was an 80 acre tract of land there
which was part of what was salvaged from a large tract
previously inherited by my great grandmother, America
Payne Duncan, wife of Levi Covington Willis, after her
parents passed away. Reportedly, after her
death the property was accidently left off the
tax rolls ad eventually changed hands. -k i

son's. Wilbur was the oldest, then Franklin and then
Gene and Gloria and Betty were the girls. Mrs. Harrison


,minded of an incident in my younger years that involved

unusualal to see members of all those families gathered up
for some games an so on.
One day Jeanie was resting between games or whatev-
er and she had a nice spot on a large live oak tree that
had arched down to ground level and on that particular
day I had borrowed R.V. Calhoun's BB gun and had it
with me when I saw Jeanie sitting there. The old devil
must have made me do what came next as I placed the

to leave a lasting impression on
its bhsteners. It has already made
an impression on southern
gospel radio as they have land-
ed a top 5 spot with the release
of their very first single, "Wher-

has given Crossway countless

try they have been a part of it. For Paul Smith, Matt
McFarland and Scott Rogers, the intentions behind
their efforts to change the perception of southern
gospel are pure and unselfish. "We want nothing more
than to present the greatest truth to as many people as
we possibly can through music that is both fresh and
exciting," states baritone Paul.
WVith the release of their multi-Dove nominated al-
bi.rm entitled, This I Know, the group made many peo-
ple aware of their now unmistakable sound. With nu-
merous radio hits, such as "It Looks Like Love," Long
Arm," "Oh, My My" and "Unscarred," this album is
considered by many to be a landmark in an industry'
that was needing someone to step up and present the
Gospel in a new and innovative way. BILLBOARD
MAGAZINE agreed in an album review stating.
"Crossway is a group who is defining the future of the
southern gospel genre."
Because of their boldness, Crosswvay s follow up
record had been highly anticipated by both fans and
the music industry. Entitled A Beautiful Thing, the al-

features Bryant Thigpen on lead vocals. Bryant is 19
years old and is the bass guitarist for the Reflectsons.
He hails from Madison County.
Steven Gunter is the baritone vocalist and pianist for
the group and is 24 years old. He is from Jacksonville
and sings with the River City Too
Katie Silcos flls the alto position for LifeSong. Katie
is from Callahan and sings with New City Trio. The
trio is coming together for only two concerts. They
have put together a project that gospel music fans are
sure to love. "The CD is called 'Having Fun,"' Thigpen
said, "because that's what we're doing having fun."

Raymon and Annette Land named Farm Family of the Year.


Raymon and Annette Land named

Farm Family of the Year


IRA MIKELL
Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@alltel.net
oots run deep and wide in
Lafayette County and the
surrounding areas for Ray-
mon and Annette Land of
Hatch Bend who are the recipients of
Florida Farm Bureau's 2007 "Farm Fam-
ily of the Year" award. This honor was


-,V !JI


given to Chris and Kelly Lyons last year.
The Lands are among a number of de-
cendents of pioneer families who settled
in the county during the 19th century,
and possibly earlier: the Lyons, Hatches,
Hamlins, Dees, and Ridgeways, just to
name a few.
Life in those days was very different
than how we live today. For example,
travel was often done by saddling up a
horse or mule, or riding bare-back;


!p --

Various scenes taken Irom around the Land homestead. Pnolou ir, kiiiei


hitching a horse, mule, or a team to a
buckboard wagon or a buggy; and by
stagecoach. Sometimes, people walked
barefoot for miles, whether to school,
town, or to church. Another means of
travel was by riding several ferries that
made stops along the Suwannee River at
places such as New Troy, Luraville,
Clay Landing, and New Boston. These
ferries also carried the mail, bales of cot-
ton, and other items necessary to sustain
life.
The earl\ settlers also endured the
hardships and losses during the Civil
War (1861-1865). In some of the cemeter-
ies in the counts, there are headstones
that indicate how and where these brave
men served.
Despite the difficult times they taced
during that time, these pioneer families
did every thing that was possible in or-
der to survive Then efforts also helped
this county to continue to sur- ive and
become what it is today.
Although Annette was born, feared,
and attended

A


school in Suwannee County, she still
considers Lafayette County her home.
Raymon, on the other hand, was born
and raised in Hatch Bend.
Raymon attended school in Hatch
Bend until the fifth grade, at a one-room
schoolhouse not far from his home. Be-
cause it was nearby, he walked every-
day until the school closed and he rode
the school bus to Branford, and later .to
Mayo, to continue his education. There
were three schools in Hatch Bend, ac-
cording to Ravimon: "Hatch Bend
School." "Mud Swamp School," and,
"Walker Creek School."
Like his grandfather. Raymon's
strongest passion is horses. From an ear-
ly age, he observed how his grandfather
treated and raised horses. According to
Raymon. his grandfather had a unique
talent for talking to them and knowing
which ones would be easy to train from
the others simply by observing and be-
ing around them.
When he was a teenager, Raymon and
lus grandfather went to an animal auc-
tion. While there, Raymon
d isco ered a horse he
liked so much
S. that his
S' grandfather
allowed
him to take

Raymon and Annette Land named


Farm Family of the


Year


Continued From Page 6A

Even before leaving the auc-
tion, he named her Maude.
Raymon said he loved and
took care of his prized posses-
sion everyday and whenever he
had the opportunity, he would
ride Maude even during the
times when his father took him
on hunting trips.
In addition to raising horses,
the Lands also raise timber, cat-
tle, grow watermelons, and
bale hay. According to Ray-
mon, his family currently owns
approximately 10,000 acres of
land. Some of the land, approx-
imately several hundred acres,
was deeded to him by his par-
ents many years ago. "We still
live on part of the farm that my
great-grandfather Ridgeway
homesteaded, which was on
my mother's side of the family.
He and his two brothers came
down from Alabama as single
men and each homesteaded 160
acres. He married and had one
daughter which was my grand-
mother. His brothers never
married, so at their deaths, my
grandmother Dees, whose
maiden name was Ridgeway,
inherited the land from all
three of the Ridgeway brothers.
We live on part of that original
homestead," Raymon said.
Raymon also said he remem-
bered the days when, during
watermelon season, he and oth-
er workers would have to
transport the watermelons by
truck to the railroad train depot
in Branford. According to Ray-
mon, the only way to ship the
watermelons during that time
was by railroad.
While at the depot, the water-
melons would be loaded from
the truck to a car that would be
assigned to them or one they
had requested. After a railcar
was loaded, an employee of the
railroad would inspect the load
to make sure everything was in
proper order and in accordance
with the railroad's rules and
regulations. At that time, Ray-
mon said a $12-18 fee.was
charged to buy a railcar and
process the paperwork.
Raymon and Annette remem-
ber their parents as good exam-
ples to follow who always
loved them and found ways to
make sure they had shelter and
plenty of food and clothing. Re-
gardless of how tough life be-
came, they said their parents al-
ways prayed, went to church,
and never gave up hope. "My
mother was a real, good, fine,
Christian lady. She made sure
that the church doors were
open, and not only was she ,
there, but her eight children
were there," Raymon said.
Annette owns and operates
Land Brokerage Realty on US
27, in Branford. They also own
and operate Land Truck Bro-
kers in the same building
where Raymon's office is locat-
ed.
The Lands have two sons,
Jody and Adrian, and four
grandchildren. Raymon gradu-
ated from Lafayette High
School in 1958, Annette gradu-
ated from Branford High
School in 1959, and they were
married in 1960. Their sons and
families live in Hatch Bend and
help Raymon and Annette the
family operation.
The Lands thank everyone,
especially Farm Bureau for al-.
lowing them to represent
Lafayette County as the 2007
"Farm Family of the Year."

Comp storm
A A- r- 0-%


National carrier
entering Florida
Tampa, Florida's major
insurance companies take
flight from Florida, they
are leaving the state's busi-
ness owners with fewer
options for quality work-
ers' compensation cover-
age at reasonable, prices.
In the wake of several
niajor hurricanes that have
battered Florida the past
few years, powerhouse in-
surers such as Nationwide,
State Farm and Allstate
have pulled out of the
property /casualty busi-
ness in Florida-taking with
them workers' comp cov-
erage for many of the
state's small and midsize
businesses.
"As carriers have left the
state, business owners~and
particularly small busi-
nessesare bearing the
brunt of it," said Greg
Donsbach, vice president
of underwriting for Tam-
pa-based FirstComp.
"Those businesses still re-
quire affordable work
comp to protect their
greatest asset-their em-
ployees."
Donsbach said that's
why FirstComp, one of the
largest and fastest-growing
monoline workers' com-
pensation companies in
the nation, is putting down
roots in Florida with a fo-'
cus on small businesses
and small, independent in-
surance agencies. First-
Comp will enter the state
to write new business be-
ginning December 1.
FirstComp's small-busi-


FirstComp
as others pull out
ness model is enhanced by
a web-based underwriting
and quoting system that
makes it easy for agents to
write small accounts, and
also makes it profitable.
The company's average
business customer has five
or fewer employees and an
annual premium of less
than $5,000.
"Most companies are not
interested in writing small
accounts, especially in
light of the hurricane ex-
posure in Florida," Dons-
bach said. "FirstComp has
a commitment to serving
small agencies in small
towns. Writing small ac-
counts is our forte, so
we're excited to offer Flori-
da's small business owners
a quality product at a time
when they don't have
many to choose from."
FirstComp even plans to
open a regional office in
Tampa for sales, under-
writing and claims units to
service the Southeast re-
gion. FirstComp, which
provides access to work-
ers' comp for more than
80,000 small and midsize
businesses in 28 states, has
never left a state it has en-
tered in the company's 10-
year history.
"One of the things we
can offer as a new compa-
ny entering this market is
our longevity," Donsbach
says. "We are here to.cre-
ate a viable work comp
market for small agents
and business owners in
Florida for many years."

SubtltedI by: Chris 'ann .
Lafayette Couitu Extension _

The fall season to many.
is their favorite time of
the year. Cooler weath- i
er, the fall colors and the -'. .
various festivals are all
enjoyable. I enjoy the im- ;i .
portance of the traditional
harvest time. A standing field of corn,
soybeans, peanuts, cotton, etc. right be-
fore harvest is a beautiful sight. But,
there is no surer sign of fall to me than
when we start seeing pumpkins for
sale.
Pumpkins are native to the United
States. Our history is rich with tradi-
tions relating to pumpkins. Native
Americans used them as a staple in
their diets. They roasted strips to eat
and used dried strips of the fruit to
weave into mats.
While pumpkin pie probably wasn't
part of the first Thanksgiving meal, the
Pilgrims did eat pumpkins. Most likely,
it was more of a pudding sweetened
with honey and flavored with spices.
Pumpkins are even prominent in lit-
erature. Remember Cinderella's coach?
How about Charles Schulz's character
Linus and his quest for the Great
Pumpkin? John Greenleaf Whittier
even penned a poem, "The Pumpkin," ,
around 1850. His words foretold the
prominence pumpkins would hold in
today's autumn traditions. "Oh. fruit


loved of boyhood, the old days recall-
ing. when wood-grapes were pur-
pling and brown nuts were falling.
When wild. ugly faces we carved in
' its skin, glaring out through the dark
with a candle within."
Despite its roots in our history, the
i first lack-o-lantern wasn't carved
*.-i from a pumpkin, nor did it originate
m America. It probably began in Ire-
land hundreds of years ago. We can
trace it to the legend of a character
named "Stingy Jack."
Stingy Jack made a deal with the dev-
il and wasn't allowed into Heaven. He
was left to wander the Earth, and he
placed a glowing ember in a turnip to
light his way. He came to be known as
Jack of the lantern, from which we get
the term jack-o-lantern.
The Irish carved jack-o-lanterns out of
turnips, rutabagas, gourds or potatoes.
They placed a light in them on Allhal-
lows Eve. Some say it was to keep
Stingy lack away or to ward off evil
spirits, but other stories call it simply a
celebration of the harvest and the end
of the summer.
When the Irish came to America, they
soon realized that pumpkins made even
better jack-o-lanterns, thus beginning
the American tradition.
Whether for jack-o-lanterns at Hal-
loween or just for fall decorations,
pumpkins continue to be integral parts
of the fall landscape and are good to
eat.

addition, the public is in-

to the Sheriff on ways to
improve the website. "I am
trying to open the doors of
communication between

Green % ill entertain Festival fans
w ith his melodic howling harmonica, his


twangy rhythmic guitar and -
soulful blues-driven vocals.
Born in Montgomery, Alabama,
in the early 1930s, Green I
worked for many years with a *
rural sharecropper family. In his
early teens he would hitch a ride
or hop a freight train into town
and learn the blues from the old
blues masters in the juke joints.
Self taught on harmonica and L !
guitar, Green delivers an entic- J
'ing and authentic performance jP j
for his audience. Green has
opened shows for John Ham- II
mond, Jr. (who calls him "the
real deal"), Tommy Castro,
Charlie Musselwhite, Maria
Muldaur, John Lee Hooker,
James Cotten, Eddie Kirkland,
Joey Gillmore, JJ Grey
(MOFRO) and many others in-
cluding an outdoor opener at
Veterans Coliseum for Eric
Clapton. Green resides in Ocala,
and he can be heard regularly at
the Yearling Restaurant in his-
toric Cross Creek.
Rice is perhaps the greatest
innovator in acoustic flatpicked
guitar since Clarence White and
Doc Watson. Over the course of
his career, he has played along-
side J.D. Crowe and the New
South, David Grisman (during
the formation of "Dawg Mu-
sic"), led his own groups, collaborated with
fellow picker Norman Blake and recorded
with his brothers, Wyatt and Larry. Rice re-
mains one of bluegrass' top instrumentalists
and singers, bringing originality and vitality
to everything he plays.
Green and Rice will be among more than
200 Florida performers taking the stage and
offering workshops throughout the three-day
festival.

Lightning Season is here, and you need our protection:

SURGE PROTECTION PROGRAM: This f
program is aimed at helping to.protect members ,
.homes and sensitive electronic equipment from
lightning strikes and other types of power surges
and spikes. Power surges are sudden powerful
increases in voltage which can damage or destroy
household appliances and electronics like computers,
televisions, telephones, and more. Power surges or spikes can be
caused by lightning strikes, birds, animals and trees interfering with
power lines.

This package includes a surge protection device which attaches to the
base of the electric meter to reduce high voltage spikes and surges before
they enter the home. An additional level of protection is provided from
surge suppressers to be used inside the home. This kit is designed to offer
a basic level of protection for a household. Obviously, however, specific
needs will vary from family to family and members enrolled in this
program can lease additional surge protectors to suit their individual
requirements.

The cost of the basic package is $6.00 per month, with a one time $120.00
installation fee. The installation fee covers properly grounding your house
and installing the protection device within your meter base.

You are obligated to participate in this program for a minimum
three years.
Call 362-2226 for details.

The Power Of Pink: Make a Difference

for Breast Cancer Awarenes


The color pink summons up a variety of images: frilly
frocks for baby girls, bouquets of soft-scented roses, or
satin bridesmaid gowns. Although the color has earned a
reputation for sweetness, people all around the world'
continue to show there's power in pink. That's because
pink is the official color for breast cancer awareness, and
this subtle shade continues to remind the public of the
hope and support available.
Education and financial support go a long way toward
helping the breast cancer cause, something brands, like Tic
Tac, continue to be part of. In honor of National Breast
Cancer Awareness Month, Tic Tac Freshmints boxes
featuring pink packaging and the breast cancer awareness
ribbon will hit shelves nationwide in September and
October 2007. Recognizing consumers' heightened
concerns with fighting this disease, the brand developed
Pink Ribbon boxes as a simple, yet significant, way to
make a contribution to those affected by breast cancer and
in need of professional support. The Tic Tac brand will
donate $100,000 from the sale of the Pink Tic Tac boxes
to support CancerCare, a national nonprofit organization
that provides, free professional support services to anyone
affected by cancer.
"The Tic Tac brand's support provides help and hope to
people facing a breast cancer diagnosis right now," says
Diane Blum, Executive Director, CancerCare. "We are
thrilled to be partnering with them this year, and are
grateful that the brand can help us provide resources to the
many individuals affected by breast cancer."
Here are some fun and effective ways to embrace pink in
honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month or to
support that special woman you know, courtesy of the Tic
Tac brand:
1. Wear pink with pride: Men, women and children can
sport pink ribbons any time of year to reinforce the
message about breast cancer awareness and support.
2. Create a community/company fundraiser: It's
difficult to find a person who hasn't been touched by,
breast cancer in some way. A great way to boost morale is
to host a fundraiser designed to raise money for cancer
research. Whether it is a bake sale or a walk-a-thon, every
bit helps.
3. Pink products: Many reputable companies produce

pink products in support of breast
cancer. By purchasing these items you
support the effort. A portion of the retail
price is typically donated to cancer
research and services for those who are
affected by breast cancer.
4. Pink party: Throw a party with a
pink theme. Decorate with pink
decorations, serve pink beverages,
decorate food with pink
embellishments,, and, munch on pink
desserts. Have each person in
attendance purchase a raffle ticket
where half of the proceeds will go to the
raffle prize and the other half to breast
cancer support. What a fun way to
spread the message.
These are just a few ideas to help the
breast 'cancer cause. For more
information about support services for
people affected by breast cancer, go to

Recognizing the danger presented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers will concentrate their efforts on
vehicles being operated with defects such as bad brakes, worn
tires and defective lighting equipment. In addition, attention
will be directed to drivers who would violate the driver license
laws of Florida. The Patrol has found these checkpoints to be
an effective means of enforcing the equipment and driver's li-
cense laws of Florida while ensuring the protection of all mo-
torists.

362-1734 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE 1-800-525-4182


Dear Classified Guys,
Ever since my wife and I went to a
classic car show, she's been
obsessed with wanting a 1950's clas-
sic truck. She thinks it's the perfect
vehicle to put our two Labs in the
back and go for a Sunday drive.
Since I'm the guy who has to fix the
cars, I'm thinking the dogs look just
fine riding around in our new mini-
van. At least I can easily get the car
repaired or buy the parts when I need
them. For the past few weeks she's
been circling ads for old trucks and
pushing me to buy one. I think she's
even convinced the dogs that it's a
good idea. Before I give in to
all of them, can you tell me
how hard it is to get an
older/antique truck
repaired? I can do the work
myself, but can you really find
parts for these things?

Cash: If your wife has already con-
vinced the dogs, it sounds like the deci-
sion is pretty much made.
Carry: And we can see why.
Antique trucks do have a great look to
them. However, you probably don't
need more people pressuring you to get
one.
Cash: Owning an antique truck can

be a very enjoyable experience depend-
ing on the condition you buy it in and
how much you enjoy car repair or
restoration. If you find one that has
been completely restored and kept it in
great condition, then the repairs should
be minimal and fairly simple.
Carry: With many classic cars, origi-
nal parts are limited. Fortunately, the
Internet has made finding them a lot
easier. It's simply a matter of time,
energy and cost.
Cash: The model truck you're look-
ing to buy and how it was restored will
play a large role in the availability of .
parts. .Some items can be retrofited
with more readily available relace-


,.?l:07 Tr. r s i -. ] r ': .'J, J,

ments, but there may still be some
things that require original parts.
Carry: Although your local auto
parts store may not stock specialty
parts, there are stores throughout the
country that deal in nothing but antique
cars. However, you should be prepared
to pay the added expense.
Cash: In the end, you and your wife
are the only ones who can decide if it's
worth owning a 1950's truck.
However, if you choose to buy one, be
sure to bring your two Labs along to
pick it out!

us your opinion? Let us hear It. Leave a

Towed You
The sight of a tow truck can be a
welcomed relief when you're broken
down on the side of the road. For
those of us who have needed one, we
owe our thanks to Ernest Holmes Sr.
He came up with idea in 1916 when he
helped a friend retrieve his car using
three poles, a pulley and a chain
hooked to the frame of a 1913
Cadillac. After patenting his inven-
tion, he began selling tow trucks to
garages that needed to tow disabled
vehicles. Today you can find over
5,800 motor vehicle towing companies
nationwide to help you when you're
stranded.
It's a Classic
When it comes to antique vehicles,
personal preference plays a major role
in choosing the right car for you.
However, it turns out that some classic
cars draw more attention than others.
According to an analysis performed by
BuyClassicCars.com, the top three
most popular domestic classic cars are
the 1967-69 Chevy Camaro, the 1965-
66 Ford Mustang and.the 1962-65
Chevy Impala. For foreign cars, it was
the VW beetle, Triumph TR3 and the
Austin Mini. It seems many of us
have similar tastes after all.


Name Game
I believe that nothing makes a
woman feel more pampered than a
good pedicure So I started my o\ n
business to give pedicures in people's
homes.
My husband helped me start it up
and een bought me a small truck to
house all of m\ supphes for tra% eling.
Before we had the truck custom paint-
ed, %% e stayed up for daN s tri ing to
come up \ ith the perfect name for the
business
At first my husband suggested
"Pedicure To-Go". but it \\asn't snazzy
enough. Then he thought of "Salon on
Wheels", but again it Iust didn't seem
right. Finally.. ust before bed one
night hlie found the pertfct uame.
Jumping from his chair, he elled. "I
got it! Let's call it the 'Toe-Truck'!"
i(Thanks o I aria S.)


Here's a truck that complains
about carrying heavy loads.

5 ways



to celebrate


Halloween without trick-or-treating


Trick-or-treating and
Halloween go together,
well, like witches and
black cats. For years it
has been a custom to
haunt the neighborhood
dressed in costume and
coax the residents into
filling bags full of treats
or tricks.
However, trick-or-
treating has always
posed a set of real
dangers, beyond spooky,
costumed creatures.
Parading around at night
(Halloween
conveniently fells
around the start of
daylight savings time for
this part of the world)
makes it difficult for
pedestrians and drivers
to see trick-or-treaters.
Plus, this day of joy and
controlled chaos for
children can be the ideal
time for a child predator
to attempt something
dangerous. Sad but true.
That's why many
choose to skip the trick-
or-treating and look for
safer -yet equally fun
- activities instead.
Here are some
spooktacular
alternatives:
1. Haunted gathering:
A chaperoned, organized
Halloween party is as
good as scouring the
neighborhood for treats,
wit a lot less mileage. If
guests still want a feel of
hunting for treats,
organize a scavenger
hunt around the house
with clues pointing to
hidden candy treats or
ghastly tricks. You can
even make your event a
themed Halloween party
(where everyone is
required to dress in a
particular way: pirates,
jungle, Hawaiian, etc.)
and everyone votes on
the best costume.
2. The shopping
circuit: Many towns and
individual retailers
organize trick-or-
treating jaunts in area
malls or shopping
plazas. This way
children can visit
reputable stores in a safe
manner and come home
with candy, coupons and


more.
3. Spooky sleepout:
The crisp, autumn
weather can be the ideal
time to sleep under the
stars ... or amid the
tombstones. Invite a
small gathering of brave
friends to stake out their
spots in the backyard.
Scary ghost stories,
s'mores and "truth or
dare" type activities are
a must on All Hallows
Eve.
4. Treat-tasting event:
What baking cookies
does for Christmas,
treat-tasting can do for
Halloween. Invite a
group of friends over to
concoct and sample a
host of devilishly
delicious dishes. Or,
host a Halloween pot
luck where everyone
brings their own
favorites. There are
plenty of recipes out
there, but here's a quick
idea: Crush an Oreo
pre-made pie crust to
create chocolate crumbs
(much easier than
separating the cream
from the cookies and
crushing). Use the
crumbs to coat frosting
on cupcakes or cakes, or
to cover pudding. The
result looks like dirt and
can be used to create
small-scale gravesites,
earthworm homes and so
many other spooky
ideas. Plus, it's the best-
looking and best-
tasting dirt you'll
ever devour.
5. Be charitable: Less-
fortunate children in
shelters or orphanages
also want to experience
the joys of Halloween.
See if you can organize
a scary movie viewing
(tailor the scariness
factor to the age of the
audience), or throw a
Halloween bash for
them to enjoy. Who
knows, you may be able
to get a local restaurant
or store to donate some
food or supplies. Not
only will you have fun,
you'll create an
enjoyable evening for a
lot of others who can use
a smile and a treat.
