Five questions with ... Cheyenne Green of Marion
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.

John Homan: Can Trump make newspapers great again?
Ever since it was announced last weekend that President Donald Trump was going to make a campaign stop in Murphysboro this coming Saturday on behalf of congressman Mike Bost, my heart started racing. I wondered aloud, could Trump really make newspapers great again? He makes everything else great, or so he says. So, why not the fourth estate?

Carbondale takes the Strip for Halloween
Take the Strip! At one time, that rallying cry could be heard on any given weekend as the bars emptied their final human contents onto South Illinois Avenue at the end of the night, leaving the poor and drunken masses with no viable choice but to congregate in the middle of a highly traveled state highway. Well, they had a choice, but .... Almost every weekend, we -- and yes, occasionally I was part of that discombobulated crowd -- shut that highway down as the police waited nearby for everyone to sober up and go home. Sometimes, someone got too rowdy. Arrests weren't unusual.

John Homan: Taking a stand for journalists, the media, Colin Kaepernick

At last, our summer of 'Fortnite' has ended. Let's dance!
This year, all those yellow school buses hitting the streets bring with them a very special case of the blues. That's because those buses, hallmarks of new years and fresh beginnings, are a poor substitute for the blue "Battle Bus," that vehicle of beeping anticipation that delivers eager sharpshooters to the field of war in the supremely popular video game "Fortnite."

Twenty years later, I'm #CarbondaleProud -- and you should be, too
All around town, you can hear talk of the "self-fulfilling prophecy" -- the notion that the more we talk about the exodus of students, or crime, or the myriad other issues causing angst in Carbondale, the more we doom ourselves to ultimate failure. But let's turn that on its head for a moment.
