Halloween decorating as much fun for homeowner as trick-or-treaters

When the black, skull-decorated wrought-iron gate swings open Friday night, the "Prince of Darkness" will greet trick-or-treaters and invite them to cross - if they dare - into the graveyard within the confines of the front yard at 954 Poplar St., in Huntington.

It is as much of a treat for the gatekeeper as it is for trick-or-treaters, many of whom return year after year.

The Prince - aka Richard Sutton, who by day is a mild-mannered sales rep for Window World - transforms into the menacing alter ego for one of his very favorite times of the year.

Three men are vying for two positions on the Roanoke Town Council this year.

Newcomer Brian Secor is running against incumbents Cory Cartwright and Troy Karshner, who are both also looking to retain their positions on the council.

Roanoke residents will be asked to select two of the three during the Nov. 4 election.

Cartwright, the most recent addition to the town council, has worked as a driver for Erie Haven for 13 years. He lives at 497 Posey Hill St., Roanoke, with his wife Connie and two young children.

Daylight Savings Time ends on Nov. 2

Daylight Savings Time will end on Sunday, Nov. 2, at 2 a.m., returning the hour of sleep lost when DST started for the year on March 9.

Many cell phones, cable boxes and some other electronic devices will adjust automatically to the time change.

Anyone who needs to manually change their clocks, however, should set the clock back one hour before going to bed Saturday night, Nov. 1. For example, if you go to bed at 11 p.m., set the clock back to 10 p.m.

The end of Daylight Savings Time will mean it will get lighter an hour earlier in the morning.
