GOBLIN WARNING: Safety first this weekend

E-mail Print PDF

WARNING: Local authorities are asking Sulphur Springs residents to be on the lookout for strange people and creatures Saturday on the streets of our city. Residents are asked to be extremely cautious in their travels and to avoid these menacing characters. Residents are also being warned to expect several front-porch invasions. These gremlins, ghosts and goblins can usually be harmlessly handled with a small amount of candy, so it would be wise to have some available early Saturday evening.

Yes, Halloween is here and the streets of Sulphur Springs will be filled with vampires and princesses and rockstars and ballplayers. And while our children roam the streets searching for the all-encompassing candy overload, we must all take extra care when traveling the roadways to keep our costumed monsters in good health.

It also might be wise to check your yard Saturday for any potential pitfalls, such as water hoses and the like, just to make sure an unexpected  "land mine" doesn't trip up an eager child zooming for the next home.

While many local organizations are sponsoring Halloween parties to give kids a protected place to safely trick-or-treat, there will still be many kiddos out-and-about town, hopping from house to house and street to street on their candy quest. That means great care must be taken driving through all parts of the city.

Halloween is such special holiday for our kids. They love getting dressed up and the candy-search rarely can be topped. Let's all make sure we keep our kids healthy and safe this weekend and make this a Halloween they will all remember.

Happy Halloween!
