Rather quiet Halloween for Stockton Stockton Police Chief Kelly Post stated, "It was just an excellent Halloween this year for Stockton." The depart- ment didn't receive any complaints and there were no issues whatsoever other than a few pumpkins out in the streets. Post noted, "Stockton is such a fine community with many Halloween events scheduled for the town that made it a great time for the kids as well as the adults." Fall harvest update from Farmers Union The milo has been making its way to the area elevators over the past two weeks with 510,000 bushels taken in at Stockton Farmers Union Elevator, and 300,000 bushels taken in at Woodston Coop. Stockton has also taken in 52,000 bushels of corn and 91,000 bushels of soy- beans. Woodston Coop has taken in 176,000 bushels of corn and 134,000 bushels of soybeans as of Monday, November 5th. The early morning rain on Monday slowed the harvest down for a few hours with farm- ers using that time to bring in test samples. Manager Deb Clark stated, "This harvest is already 110% over last year's harvest, with quite a bit still out there to be cut." AS THE BUMPER CROP OF MILO COMES IN, attendants at Farmers Union Coop are piling it on the ground just south of their office location. The different varieties make pretty layers of different colors.

Daniel Besperat enjoys animal adventure By VIRGI LASKA Stockton Sentinel Adopt a downtown planter or tree this holiday season! This holiday season the Stockton PRIDE com- mittee is adding another dimension to decorating the downtown planters and trees for Christmas. This year they are asking the public and business community to "Adopt A Planter/Tree." There are four large planters, 17 small flower boxes/planters and 20 trees in the Main Street area which a person, orga- nization or business can adopt. All you have to do is contact the Chamber Office or PRIDE president Amber Muir to let them know if you would like to donate for dec- orations to be used and the committee will decorate one for you, or adopt and deco- rate a specific one yourself at your cost. To adopt a large planter, the donation is $25.00; a small flower box/planter is SEE ADOPT, 2A Stockton eighth-grade stu- dent Daniel Besperat had an adventure of a lifetime when he attended the Cub Creek Science and Animal Camp this past summer. This camp is the only residential sum- mer camp in the United States with a private, hands-on zoo for its campers to enjoy, and it just happens to be located in Rolla, Missouri. There are over 300 animals that the campers can interact with during their stay. Daniel said he learned about the camp when his mom, Pam, discovered the site on the Internet last year. Daniel, who wants to be a vet- erinarian, said he was hooked after reading the information on its introductory page. He picked the week of his birth- day to attend the camp and traveled to Rolla on July 22nd and stayed until August 3rd. Of course, he took part in the Junior Vet Course they offer, and he learned how to suture, how to give vaccines SEE BESPERAT, 4A Thank A Veteran! Make Halloween Great Again!
