BONE BOOGIE: Hannibal Regional Hospital Foundation's recent Bone Boogie costume party and dance raised more than $5,500 to benefit the non-profit organization's Back In Motion Fund. This fund will assist in fostering the healing process of the hospital's orthopedic patients before, during and after surgery. The Halloween-themed benefit dance was held at the Quality Inn.


ELECTION FORECAST? One of the costume options for Halloween revelers this year were masks of the Presidential candidates. For $19.99, you could have showed up at your Halloween party looking like Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. The Spirit of Halloween, 3110 Broadway, was sold out of Romney masks, but still had a half-dozen Obama masks for sale. Could that be a sign of things to come on Election Day?


 PUMPKIN PRIZES: Nine winners were chosen in the Pumpkins in the Park contest, sponsored by Hannibal Parks & Recreation. About 75 people voted on the pumpkins by walking down a path in Nipper Park. Children's winners were Ashlee Shulse, Andrew Clark and Ava Houghton. Adult winners were Austin Shulse, Jennifer Kitzmiller and Kerrie Green-Otten. Kristina and Joseph Lambert, Grace Gillaspy and the Shulse family won in the family category. See all the winning entries and photos from the event at
