Halloween happiness and happenings


Hillsboro trick-or-Treat main Street


Dakoda Ogle, dressed as a horse, and his vampire sister, Amberley, visited downtown businesses in Hillsboro Monday as part of the annual Trick or Treat Main Street. Accompanying them was their grandmother, Bonnie Mendoza, as the ?scary clown? in front of LaCabana?s offered candy. Hundreds of children dressed as pumpkins, ghosts and other ghoulish characters thanked merchants for staying open and giving out candy.


Marion sidewalks filled with Trick-or-Treaters, too


The sidewalks in downtown Marion were filled with happy Trick-or-Treaters visiting businesses on Main Street and over the hill Oct. 31. Following the special treat offered by local businesses, the Marion Police Department held its annual ?Night of the Rhino? event with hot dogs and refreshments available to everyone. The event also gave police and the public a chance to visit and think about ways everyone can help by working together to fight crime.
