PUBLISHERS AND PRINTERS<br />

Side Trips<br />

From haunted houses to fright hikes,<br />

this issue is all about celebrating Halloween.<br />

I have a tendency to skip Halloween and<br />

just celebrate fall in<br />

general. There are several<br />

reasons <strong>for</strong> that.<br />

#1: The seasons pass<br />

too quickly <strong>for</strong> me to<br />

decorate <strong>for</strong> both, so<br />

I do pumpkins and<br />

colorful leaves, not<br />

jack-o-lanterns and<br />

witches.<br />

#2: Having candy in<br />

the house is a temptation<br />

I can do without.<br />

My husband and I<br />

MYRNA<br />

WAGNER<br />

were in the grocery store over the weekend<br />

and paused <strong>for</strong> a moment in front of the<br />

bags of Halloween candy. Looking at each<br />

other and remembering that we get very few<br />

trick-or-treaters, we passed on the candy. He<br />

and I would have been the ones eating it,<br />

not the little princesses and super heroes.<br />

#3. I hate to be scared. I don’t like haunted<br />

houses, and horror movies terrify me. I<br />

naively went to the theatre <strong>for</strong> “Silence of<br />

the Lambs” 20-plus years ago and I’ve never<br />

recovered. I am also extremely easy to scare<br />

— walk up behind me and if I don’t hear<br />

you coming I will literally jump. My kids<br />

and husband can all vouch <strong>for</strong> me on that<br />

one.<br />

There are lots of things I love about this<br />

time of year, though. The brilliant colors<br />

of the leaves. The crispness in the air. The<br />

smell of harvest. The color of the moon.<br />

Making soups, stew and chili. And pumpkins.<br />

I came across a recipe last night that combines<br />

them both — pumpkin soup with<br />

Iowa corn, In<strong>for</strong>mation<br />

PUBLISHERS AND chipotle PRINTERS and sausage. Can’t wait to try<br />

it.<br />

RYLAN HOWE | STAFF WRITER<br />

Spirit of the season<br />

Rolling Oaks to host Boo Bash<br />

Halloween means many<br />

things to many people.<br />

Candy. Costumes. A few<br />

good scares. The falling leaves<br />

and changing colors of autumn.<br />

And, of course, several<br />

events to commemorate all of<br />

the above.<br />

The newly renovated Rolling<br />

Oaks Barn is stepping into the<br />

Halloween fun with its inaugural<br />

Boo Bash at the Barn.<br />

The children’s Halloween<br />

party will be held Thursday,<br />

Oct. 27, from 5-6:30 p.m. at<br />

the barn on the hill in Spirit<br />

Lake.<br />

It’s a free family event and<br />

area businesses are invited to<br />

set up with activities, candy<br />

and prizes <strong>for</strong> everyone who<br />

attends.<br />

“It should be really fun, we’re<br />

encouraging everyone to come<br />

in costumes and <strong>for</strong> the kids to<br />

bring their trick-or-treat pails,”<br />

said Jen Johnson-Ross, owner<br />

of Farm Girl Social Media Management.<br />

Of the businesses already<br />

signed up to help provide some<br />

Halloween fun, Johnson-Ross<br />

mentioned Creative Spirits will<br />

hold a painting class <strong>for</strong> $10<br />

while Ingvall Real Estate Team,<br />

Liberty National Bank, Good<br />

Samaritan Society, Pizza Ranch<br />

and Kurio Kastle are also ready<br />

to host activities and hand out<br />

candy.<br />

Businesses still interested in<br />

joining the fun need only contact<br />

Johnson-Ross or Rolling<br />

Oaks Barn to sign up.<br />

Businesses with cars or trucks<br />

decked out in their signage are<br />

also encourage to set up <strong>for</strong><br />

trick-or-trunk if they want.<br />

“I mean who doesn’t love<br />

Halloween?” Johnson-Ross<br />

said. “This will be a fun event<br />

and in a barn that is a century<br />

old. What they’ve done there<br />

has been spectacular. People<br />

have a lot of curiosity about it<br />

and some area kids have probably<br />

never been in a barn.”<br />

What better place is there<br />

<strong>for</strong> a Halloween event than a<br />

century-old barn?<br />

That’s what the folks at Rolling<br />

Oaks thought and the Boo<br />

Bash is something they hope<br />

becomes an annual event <strong>for</strong><br />

everyone.<br />

“It’s such a beautiful location<br />

and perfect <strong>for</strong> Halloween, so<br />

why not have a bash <strong>for</strong> the<br />

kids?” Johnson-Ross said. F<br />

in<br />

Candy is a major part of Halloween.<br />

In fact, Rock Valley has<br />

named their Halloween celebration<br />

in its honor. Once again this year,<br />

they’ll be hosting their annual Candy<br />

in the Valley event.<br />

Downtown Rock Valley will become<br />

a Halloween para<strong>dis</strong>e <strong>for</strong> kids and<br />

their families on Friday, Oct. 28, from<br />

around 3:30-5:30 p.m.<br />

Candy in the Valley is an event that<br />

has been going on <strong>for</strong> a number of<br />

years and is always a treat <strong>for</strong> both the<br />

families who come to the event and<br />

<strong>for</strong> the businesses who participate.<br />

“All the downtown businesses will<br />

have tables or booths set out where<br />

kids can come and get their candy and<br />

there will be sales going on so moms<br />

and dads can do a little shopping,”<br />

said Adam Rosman, the Rock Valley<br />

Chamber Director. “We also have one<br />

of the streets closed off and the chamber<br />

will have pumpkins available <strong>for</strong><br />

painting.”<br />

In addition to having the one street<br />

closed off <strong>for</strong> painting pumpkins, the<br />

main street running through downtown<br />

is also closed off so that the kids<br />

who come to collect candy don’t have<br />

to worry about traffic.<br />

The businesses that are downtown<br />

will hand out candy, and, in addition,<br />

other Rock Valley businesses will also<br />

make their way to downtown to set up<br />

more tables or booths.<br />

That way they can be a part of trickor-treat<br />

event.<br />

This is Rosman’s first year with the<br />

Rock Valley Chamber and he is very<br />

excited about experiencing his inaugural<br />

Candy in the Valley event.<br />

“I’m excited that the community<br />

can come out and see downtown and<br />

the growth,” Rosman said.<br />

“We’re going to celebrate the youth<br />

and the energy that you see when<br />

families come out together to enjoy<br />

some cost-efficient fun.” F<br />

Fright<br />

& fun<br />

Sheldon to<br />

host annual<br />

Halloween<br />

event Oct. 29<br />

Daylight is diminishing as darkness<br />

slowly seizes control of the day.<br />

There’s a touch of fall in<br />

the air, a sense of the changing of<br />

the seasons. Leafs briefly turn bright<br />

be<strong>for</strong>e fading and meandering to the<br />

ground in a spiral of death. Tree limbs<br />

grow skeletal, casting bony shadows.<br />

Halloween is approaching. Are you<br />

in the spirit?<br />

The second annual Prairie Arts Historical<br />

Park Halloween Carnival can<br />

help you find your inner spook. The<br />

October fright and fun fest is set <strong>for</strong><br />

1-3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29.<br />

The spooktacular event will be held<br />

at the park, located between Casey’s<br />

General Store and Shopko Hometown<br />

on Highway 18 (Park Street).<br />

Admission is free. Popcorn and hot<br />

chocolate will be sold at a concession<br />

stand.<br />

“Last year we had the honor and<br />

pleasure of having 300-plus children<br />

partake in our Halloween fun,” said<br />

Prairie Arts Historical Park Board<br />

member Karin Vanden Berg.<br />

“Again we are asking <strong>for</strong> donations<br />

to make this year even bigger and<br />

better than last year,” she said. “We<br />

would like to add a kids’ Ferris wheel<br />

this year, and hopefully a petting zoo<br />

<strong>for</strong> the kids.”<br />

Donations are needed to purchase<br />

prizes and cover other expenses. The<br />

carnival raised $600 last year in just a<br />

few weeks but has set its sights higher.<br />

Volunteers are needed to set up, tear<br />

down and help during the carnival.<br />

Last year, Sheldon mayor Katricia<br />

Meendering, who also is a park board<br />

member as well as Vanden Berg’s<br />

daughter, donned a costume and read<br />

kids’ <strong>for</strong>tunes.<br />

“Let us know you want to be a part<br />

of making this another great event <strong>for</strong><br />

the kids,” Vanden Berg said. “The more<br />

volunteers there are, the easier it is.” F<br />

Kids on parade<br />

Rock Rapids to host Halloween Parade<br />

At a Glance:<br />

On Halloween Day in downtown<br />

Rock Rapids there will be a sight<br />

to see.<br />

Ghosts and goblins, pumpkins and<br />

princesses will be on parade.<br />

Rock Rapids will once again be<br />

hosting its annual Halloween Parade<br />

on Monday, Oct. 31, at 4 p.m. Kids of<br />

all ages from all over N’West Iowa are<br />

invited to come to Rock Rapids and<br />

participate in this fun tradition.<br />

The fun starts in the Sunshine<br />

Foods parking lot at 4 p.m. and then<br />

the parade of costumed little kiddies<br />

heads east down First Avenue and<br />

then crosses to the other side of the<br />

street and comes back to the parking<br />

lot where it started.<br />

Parents are invited to come along<br />

<strong>for</strong> the parade to watch their kids,<br />

help them cross streets and gather<br />

candy.<br />

Businesses will have people to hand<br />

out candy outside their doors. And they<br />

have to have a lot of candy on hand.<br />

“We usually have about 600 kids<br />

and we have kids of all ages. We don’t<br />

have an age range,” said Angie Jager,<br />

Jager has been watching kids get all<br />

dressed up in their Halloween costumes<br />

<strong>for</strong> the Halloween Parade every<br />

year and every year she’s excited to see<br />

all the different costumes.<br />

“Seeing the kids in their costumes<br />

is my favorite part. I love seeing what<br />

the popular costume would be that<br />

particular year,” Jager said. “The past<br />

couple of years we’ve had a lot of ‘Frozen’<br />

characters. Lots of Annas, Elsas,<br />

and Olafs. I don’t know what we’ll<br />

see this year, but I’m excited to see the<br />

kids dressed up again.” F<br />

Hike full of<br />

Fright<br />

Estherville to host hike through Fort Defiance State Park<br />

Halloween is the one time of the<br />

year when people are looking to<br />

be scared just <strong>for</strong> the fun of it.<br />

The Estherville Chamber of Commerce<br />

has got you covered.<br />

For the fourth year, they’ll be hosting<br />

their Fright Hike through Fort<br />

Defiance State Park on Saturday, Oct.<br />

29, from 6-9:30 p.m.<br />

“The Fright Hike is a half-mile<br />

haunted hike through Fort Defiance<br />

State Park, and it’s a little more special<br />

than your average run-of-the-mill<br />

haunted house,” said Lexie Ruter, the<br />

executive director of the Estherville<br />

Chamber of Commerce. “The setting<br />

is in the woods so it’s already a little<br />

scary and then we add even more<br />

scary.”<br />

According to Ruter, they add the<br />

scary in a lot of different ways from<br />

the scenes they set to the costumes the<br />

volunteers wear and the sounds hikers<br />

will hear.<br />

“We do different little stations like<br />

a cemetery and we built a tunnel that<br />

you have to go through. We have characters<br />

running around scaring people,<br />

some of whom will be carrying chainsaws,”<br />

Ruter said. “We don’t have to<br />

build the surrounding, because we’re<br />

in the woods and that’s a good base<br />

there, but we add music, lights, people<br />

and sets.”<br />

They do all of this, build the scenes<br />

and get all dressed up, <strong>for</strong> just one<br />

night of fun. As <strong>for</strong> the scary characters,<br />

this year, due to recent events,<br />

there won’t be any clowns.<br />

“We’ve had some concerns in the<br />

area about the crazy clown situation<br />

so we just want to let people know<br />

that we won’t have any clowns at this<br />

event,” Ruter said. “We have police<br />

reserves who will be monitoring the<br />

entire event, so people should feel like<br />

this is still a safe event.”<br />

The Fright Hike takes about 40<br />

volunteers to run and the event has<br />

continued to grow in popularity since<br />

it first got it’s start. Last year, they had<br />

750 people go through the Fright<br />

Hike.<br />

“The first year we had 500 people<br />

come out. We were hoping <strong>for</strong> 100,”<br />

Ruter said with a laugh. “It was crazy<br />

and we’re just so excited that it is continuing<br />

to grow.”<br />

Because they serve such a big<br />

number of people and they prefer to<br />

have participants go through in small<br />

groups, they have added one more<br />

hour to this year’s Fright Hike.<br />

“We decided to start at 6 this year<br />

instead of 7 p.m. And we’re promoting<br />

it as a great hour <strong>for</strong> kids who<br />

want to be scared, but maybe not really<br />

scared,” Ruter said. “It’s still kind<br />

of dusk and not completely dark so it<br />

might be great and easier <strong>for</strong> some of<br />

the smaller kids.”<br />

But it’s not always the smallest kid<br />

who has the loudest scream, according<br />

to Ruter.<br />

“I think it’s really kind of fun to see<br />

different people’s reaction to being<br />

scared. You might see a seven-year-old<br />

girl and jump out at her and it won’t<br />

even phase her, but her 12-year-old<br />

brother might jump out of his skin,”<br />

Ruter said.<br />

People are encouraged to dress<br />

warmly as it is fall and the temperatures<br />

tend to get downright chilly in<br />

the evening after dark.<br />

If there is bad weather then the<br />

event will be moved to the next night,<br />

Sunday, Oct. 30. F<br />

Fort Defiance:<br />

Fort Defiance State Park is<br />

named <strong>for</strong> the <strong>for</strong>t that once<br />

stood in the nearby community<br />

of Estherville. In the mid-19th<br />

century there was considerable<br />

concern among the settlers about<br />

the possibility of attacks by hostiles.<br />

In March of 1857, <strong>for</strong>ty men, women<br />

and children were massacred<br />

near Spirit Lake and Okoboji. In<br />

1862, a wounded 15-year old boy<br />

stumbled into town with the story<br />

of an Indian massacre in Jackson,<br />

MN. This brought terror into<br />

the community and Captain W.H.<br />

Ingham and Company A of the<br />

Northern Border Brigade were <strong>dis</strong>patched<br />

to Estherville to construct<br />

Fort Defiance. The townspeople<br />

eventually moved into the enclosure<br />

but the feared Indian attack never<br />

came. Over time, the <strong>for</strong>t was taken<br />

apart and the timbers used to build<br />

cabins.<br />

Halloween<br />

Hartley<br />

Downtown businesses break out the candy<br />

Costumed kids will have plenty<br />

of opportunity to collect candy<br />

this Halloween in Hartley.<br />

The annual Halloween Spectacular<br />

on Oct. 31 features a trick-or-trunk<br />

event and tour through downtown as<br />

well as citywide trick-or-treating.<br />

It all starts at the fire station at 3:30<br />

p.m. when everyone will gather be<strong>for</strong>e<br />

heading out to visit the downtown<br />

businesses.<br />

Those who own businesses off Central<br />

Avenue can partcipate as well and<br />

are encouraged to set up in the parking<br />

lot <strong>for</strong> a trick-or-trunk portion of<br />

the evening.<br />

“As a chamber we’re always looking<br />

<strong>for</strong> ways to get people into businesses<br />

and the owners themselves really<br />

enjoy seeing all the kids dressed up<br />

in their costumes,” Trisha Pearson, a<br />

chamber board member and supervisor<br />

of the Halloween event, said. “Not<br />

everyone realizes what we have downtown<br />

and this is a great opportunity to<br />

walk downtown and see everything.”<br />

As the group moves its way around<br />

downtown, business owners will be<br />

set up outside to greet everyone and<br />

hand out candy.<br />

It is the third year that Halloween<br />

has had this particular <strong>for</strong>mat in<br />

Hartley and it has proved quite popular.<br />

After completing their circuit of<br />

downtown, families and their little<br />

ghosts, princesses and superheroes<br />

can continue to trick-or-treat throughout<br />

their neighborhoods until 8 p.m.<br />

It’s not just the young ones that<br />

enjoy the evening though as Pearson<br />

said many of the business owners that<br />

get involved will dress the part as well.<br />

New this year will be events hosted<br />

at St. Paul Lutheran Church just north<br />

of downtown. There will be a bouncy<br />

house set up as well as hot cocoa and<br />

apple cider served from 3-5:30 p.m.<br />

Some congregation members will<br />

have a trick-or-trunk set up outside<br />

as well with church-related trinkets as<br />

well as candy to hand out.<br />

“It’s a great, fun, family event. We<br />

start with the sun still out and everyone<br />

had a good time visiting and<br />

seeing all the different costumes,”<br />

Pearson said. F<br />

SPOOKY<br />

SPIRITS<br />

put a<br />

SCARE<br />

into the<br />

FAIR<br />

Spencer Jaycees build Terrors of the Night haunted house<br />

Hundreds of thousands of visitors<br />

walked through the Clay County<br />

Fairgrounds last month. Many<br />

probably spent some time in the Industrial<br />

Building, but none of them<br />

saw it quite like this.<br />

For the third year in a row the Spencer<br />

Jaycees will be trans<strong>for</strong>ming the<br />

space into a haunted house of horrors.<br />

“Nightmare at the Fair: Terrors of<br />

the Night” will be open Oct. 21-22<br />

and Oct. 28-29 from 8 p.m. until midnight<br />

and on Halloween from 7-10<br />

p.m. Admission costs $10 per person<br />

or $7 with two non-perishable, nonexpired<br />

canned food items.<br />

All proceeds benefit the Spencer<br />

Jaycees’ Tree of Joy program, which<br />

provides presents <strong>for</strong> families in need<br />

at Christmas.<br />

The food items will be donated to<br />

the Upper Des Moines Opportunity,<br />

Inc. food bank.<br />

“We’ve been hard at work <strong>for</strong><br />

awhile,” Spencer Jaycees president<br />

Jason Jacobs said. “We get started<br />

almost right after the fair. There is a<br />

great group of Jaycees and volunteers<br />

to help build and make this happen<br />

and Midwestern Mechanical helped<br />

out with <strong>for</strong>klifts and trailers. We’re<br />

really thankful because without all<br />

their help we couldn’t get the haunted<br />

house ready.”<br />

Jacobs noted that a grant from Clay<br />

County Tourism helped with the expenses<br />

of lumber, supplies and props<br />

and expressed his thanks <strong>for</strong> the many<br />

people willing to help set up as well<br />

as work on the nights giving people<br />

a good fright as they make their way<br />

through the Nightmare at the Fair,<br />

which has a few new frights around its<br />

corners this year.<br />

Jacobs didn’t want to give away<br />

too much, but did let on that will be<br />

some new rooms and at least a couple<br />

surprises <strong>for</strong> haunted house visitors<br />

this year, as well as a few staples that<br />

people look <strong>for</strong>ward to seeing every<br />

year.<br />

“Several hundred, if not thousands,<br />

of people come through the haunted<br />

house each year,” Jacobs said. “It’s really<br />

a quality haunted house and one<br />

of the last true ones in the area. It’s<br />

not uncommon to see people sporting<br />

gear from 9 or 10 different school<br />

<strong>dis</strong>tricts.”<br />

Some of the hundreds who visit<br />

this year will be a bit younger as the<br />

Spencer Jaycees try out something <strong>for</strong><br />

the first time.<br />

“We’re <strong>for</strong>tunate to have the YMCA<br />

working with us and on Wednesday,<br />

Oct. 26, kids get out of school early,<br />

so we’ll be hosting a toned-down version<br />

with lights on <strong>for</strong> children about<br />

third-grade and up,” Jacobs said.<br />

That’s part of what the Spencer<br />

Jaycees are all about as they raise<br />

funds and give back to community<br />

children’s programs every year. The<br />

haunted house is one of many vehicles<br />

that allow the Jaycees to do so.<br />

“It’s a serious production and quite<br />

a unique experience. I think the<br />

tradition is a big draw as well since<br />

it’s been going on <strong>for</strong> a long time,”<br />

Jacobs said. “There will be quite a<br />

few different characters going on this<br />

time and I’m looking <strong>for</strong>ward to it.<br />

Those working the haunted house really<br />

enjoy themselves and have a lot<br />

of fun with it.”<br />

Lots of fun and plenty of frights<br />

will make <strong>for</strong> a quite a night. So join<br />

ArtRageous set <strong>for</strong> Oct. 27<br />

ArtRageous began<br />

in the ’80s<br />

as a children’s<br />

theatre company in<br />

Vancouver. But a few<br />

years later, on Christmas<br />

Day, their theatre<br />

building, props and<br />

puppets burned to the<br />

ground.<br />

Instead of giving up,<br />

these 12 artists started a traveling troupe, The Pink Flamingos<br />

— named after the flame-colored bird that stands solidly<br />

on one leg, rising from the ashes. Today they call themselves<br />

ArtRageous, and present a show that features their many passions:<br />

art, music, theatre, puppetry, singing, dancing, comedy.<br />

It’s interactive. It’s energetic. It’s a visual and musical extravaganza.<br />

The Orange City show is Thursday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. at the<br />

Northwestern College Chapel.<br />

WHERE: Northwestern College Chapel, Orange City, IA<br />

WHEN: 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 27<br />

COST: Tickets are $15 adult and $10 student, in advance<br />
