BOO...Happy Halloween everyone from witches, satans, catwoman, Poison Ivy, clowns, friends and staff of The Westfield Leader.


Editorial: Donít Scorn Magic of Past Souls...Although not sanctioned by any government calendar, Halloween is a favorite holiday - colorful and festive. Kids dress up as witches, skeletons and ghosts, knocking on doors for treats - lest tricks and haunts follow. Itís a rite of fall, but strange in that all the fun seems based on the darkside - death, goblins, haunted houses and horror.

SLIGHT LEAD OVER A KARDINAL...Raider Martin Sweeney, right, held a slight lead over Kearny Kardinal Brian Mendez at about the .8-mile mark. Mendez managed to finish first and Sweeney finished second.

Voters, Too Often, Base Election on 'Superficiality'

FREEDOMíS WAY...The Raider flag, signed by all of the sixth grade players and coaches of the Scotch Plains Fanwood PAL C football team, is flown in Iraq. The football team is not only playing each week for the fans in the stands, but for our troops in harms way. The boys have dedicated their season to the troops, specifically those serving with Lt. Connor Crehan, who is a PAL alumni and a personal friend of coach Russ Yeager. When Lt. Crehan comes home, he plans to present the flag back to the team. As quoted in one of Lt. Crehanís e-mails, ďIt means a lot to have the season dedicated to us.Ē The soldiers monitor the teamís progress each week via e-mail and the Internet.
