Q. What is your fondest Halloween memory?

Cheyenne: When I was a kid, we lived out in the country and all the neighbors would get together to have a safe, fun night for all of the kids. They gave us hay rides, told scary stories, and at the end, we would all bob for apples.

Q. Do you have a favorite Halloween movie? If so, what it is?

Cheyenne: "Hocus Pocus" and "The Nightmare before Christmas" are both my favorite. I always enjoyed them growing up, and still do but now my children get to enjoy them, too.

Q. To what lengths should President Trump go toward securing the southern border in light of the thousands of Guatemalans pushing north from Mexico in search of a safer life?

Cheyenne: I think he should continue to have extreme security. I understand wanting a better life for your family but there should be precautions and proper channels in order to do that. We had Ellis Island for over 60 years. You had to go through physicals and more to make it over. It was the ones who weren't sick or who wouldn't add to the criminal aspects. I think our President is doing the best he can with what he has been given.

Q. The Fort Massac Encampment was this past weekend in Metropolis. Do you go?

Cheyenne: Yes, it's something I always look forward to every year. I would say my favorite part about it is being able to live like we were in the 1700s and early 1800s.

Q. How long have you been attending the Fort Massac Encampment?

Cheyenne: My family and I have been going ever since I can remember. It's a week long event including re-enactments, camping, cannons, and educational segments. A lot of history is given within a few short days. My grandfather took my mom when she was younger and now kids are involved as well. It's become a family tradition.
