Have fun on Halloween, and be respectable

It’s Halloween time and that means a night of fun, dressing in costumes, painting our faces, honking horns and going door to door for candy, cookies and fruit, scaring people with our fangs and witch hats, gnarly teeth and gruesome smiles.

But please, citizens, parents, teens and children, remember that Halloween is not the time to throw candy wrappers, eggs, fruit and toilet paper at your neighbors’ houses. Please be kind to children, the elderly and those who are disabled, and make sure that you help them cross the streets. If you’re in a car, don’t rev up your engine trying to frighten them. You may injure them without realizing that you’ve done so.

Please take all your candy wrappers and leftover candy and treats that you won’t eat to a nearby trash bin or home to your siblings to share with them if they weren’t able to go out trick-or-treating on Halloween.

Be happy, sociable and respectable on this one night of the year.

Thank you for your cooperation and for being wonderful witches and vampires!

Linda Robertson, Clovis
