A drive-by at the Don and Janice Sielaff home in Lincoln, and one can feel the spirit of Halloween oozing out of every creepy crawly display. For those who may be wondering, the Sielaffs - Don, Janice and daughter Anna have been quite busy setting up this year's collection with some returning figures and a couple of new ones too.

The Sielaffs are also looking forward to trick-or-treat night in Lincoln.

This week Lincoln City Council agreed to approve October 31st from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. via next week's consent agenda. The omnibus vote will approve the motion, so get started figuring out that unique Halloween costume!

The Illinois Department of Public Health has set guidelines for trick or treating, and the city recommends that the guidelines be followed. Learn about trick or treating in Lincoln, Trick-or-Treat with the Mayor, and a special event at the Lincoln Park District in today's edition.
