Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is one of the most popular and one of the most dangerous holidays of the year. The actual Halloween this year is officially this coming Sunday but be prepared because some local civic organizations start their celebration of “All Hallows Night” tomorrow evening.

Beloit Police Chief Ryan Stocker says there are some common sense things parents should do this weekend when their children are out Trick or Treating.

Stocker also wants to remind those who are more interested in the “Trick” part of the ghoulish holiday celebration, to not cross the line between fun and a criminal offense.

About Mike Schrant

Mike is one of those guys who has spent nearly a lifetime trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. He has split time as a broadcaster and educator having first worked in radio in the early 1970’s while attending junior college. The two careers are directly connected because many of the 25 years as an educator were spent teaching broadcast journalism at the high school and college levels. Mike is married and has three adult children (no grandchildren yet) and enjoys sports, debating politics, gardening, landscaping-hauling rocks, and swapping stories with the "good old boys".
