October 2008 may prove to be a time to partake in a double dose of fright. The phase of the new moon is looming and little ghosts and goblins of the night will soon be unleashed, trouncing through your neighborhood. What could be scarier than that? The 2008 election, of course.Yes, it is a great opportunity for Americans to cast their vote for their favorite candidates in the local and national elections, but there is another side to the coin. Deciding the future course of our nation – through leadership and passed amendments – is a scary proposition. It is a great responsibility to make the “right” choice, and the prospect of deciding the course of your future can be, well, a little frightening.This month, The New Falcon Herald frolics in spooky delight with articles written about both Halloween festivities and the upcoming election. Kathleen Wallace introduces readers to a local Halloween project and a little-known local gravesite. Check out News Briefs and the Community Calendar for entertaining ways for both young and old to spend All Hallows’ Eve.To help keep readers informed about candidates running for office, Natalie Gowen spotlights El Paso County commissioner candidates, as well as the Colorado 5th Congressional District race and Colorado state representative candidates for House District 15 and 20.JoAnn McNabb also reviews the Colorado amendments that will appear on the 2008 ballot, with statements for and against each amendment.The NFH and the Falcon Area Issues Roundtable are hosting a forum with Colorado state representative for House District 15 candidates Mark Waller and Michelle Maksimowicz. The community is invited to attend this event, and details are published in this issue.While little goblins carve jack-o-lanterns this Halloween, it is up to local residents to choose the candidates whom they trust to carve the future of our county, state and nation.-Stefani, Michelle and the NFH team
