What You May Need to Know This Week
Halloween keeps on giving in Haines through the weekend-- The Babbling Book has Halloween stickers and tattoos and next door at Buckshot and Bobby Pins there are wigs. The Uglys haunted house will be open 6:00 to about 8:30 on Halloween in the ANB Hall, and the Pioneer iPod DJ dance party for adults begins at 9:00. There's no school Friday so trick-or-treaters and their parents can recover. Also, it's still so mild that not only trick-or-treaters are out and about in the dark. There are lots of cyclists and walkers, so be sure to keep your eyes open if you are driving- and if you aren't use a light and wear reflective gear. (And hopefully you'll keep walking all winter if the Borough clears the new sidewalks-- have we bought one of those nifty sidewalk sized snow-blower/plows with a cab for the driver that Juneau has?) Saturday night Governor Sean Parnell will be speaking at the annual Chamber of Commerce dinner. It begins at 6:00 at Harriett Hall. Even though it's Halloweentime, I'm pretty sure he will not be wearing a cape and mask, then again, maybe he has a sense of humor?
