Typically, it would be time for the off-week preview. But since it falls on Halloween, we figured "why not?" and did a silly episode in tribute. But we keep our focus. We talk with a municipal official in Wisconsin whose town is like many these days in that its local government leadership actually schedules, by ordinance, when trick or treating takes place. We also look at the facts and figures on Halloween and its economy. And we check in with a police chief whose officers do their best to ensure a safe Oct. 31 -- with some advice for any youths planning to buy mass quantities of eggs. Listen to this one while you get your kids -- or yourself -- ready for Halloween-night fun. Census Bureau Halloween facts - Scaffidi and Bilstad Show (with Halloween scheduling talk) - Fuquay-Varina Police Department on Facebook (plenty of Halloween info) -
