Lincoln plans for Halloween

Maple Ridge and Lincoln Park District host celebration

Maple Ridge Care Centre and the Lincoln Park District are preparing for their annual Halloween celebration. The celebration is open to children up through grade school and their parents. The care center and the local park district host these events so that children can meet Maple Ridge residents and because this event is safer than going from door to door.

The celebration begins at Maple Ridge Care Centre at 4 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 30. The care center will be decorated, the staff and residents will be dressed up in costumes, and children can visit various booths and the dining hall.

At 6 o’clock on the same Monday evening, the celebration will move to the Lincoln Park District, where festivities continue until 8 p.m. Children can collect candy and trinkets. Also, there will be a costume contest.

If you have questions, please call Maple Ridge Care Centre at 735-1538 or the Lincoln Park District at 732-8770.

It’s news to me?

By Jim Youngquist

[OCT. 28, 2000]  The entire news industry seems to be having a great cathartic struggle. It recently came to light as network television stations wrestled over what to do about the sagging, flagging and falling ratings for coverage of blockbuster news events such as the Sydney Olympics, the Republican and the Democratic national conventions. All three of these events were bombs for the networks. They lost viewers, they lost money and they believe they have lost face. The problem, they say, is that these events should no longer be regarded as news.
