Aieeeeeee . . . . .! My annual Halloween Existential Nightmare is on me again. There's a Hellhound on my trail. Whether to watch a triple feature of "The Thing" series, All upmteen Texas Chainsaw Massacrees, The chicken guts and jello Circadianism of the Night of the Living deadnaughts, or somnambulate through the direness of fakes like "The Stuff." What would Joe Bob Briggs do . . . . Hmmm. . . maybe a juicy dose of Evil Dead. Just a whistlin' in the dark. SVH

In case you have been hiding ..... and forgotten what day it is .....

Don't forget about the Jamestown School Halloween Party this evening from 5:30 - 6:30!

And if you are "too old" to come to the party (HA! No such thing as too old!), don't forget to have your candy ready for the ghosts and ghouls!

Trick-or-Treating starts at 6:30! The l'il haunts will be travelling from the school down Mesa Hill and around Low Main this year; avoiding the dark dropoff of Andersen Hill.

Get your Jack-O-Lanterns lit, and enjoy the evening!

Hi! My name is Mary Louise. I am a friend of Deborah Haynes and renting a room in her house at 51 Main. I am very happy to be here and look forward to being a part of your wonderful community.

I am also looking for work. I am a care-giver, case-manager, excellent cleaner, organizer, cook, and I love animals (pet-sitting). I also have a resume with lots of administrative experience working for non-profits, educational institutions, and health care facilities. If you or someone you know needs a person to help with any of the above services please contact me anytime by e-mail: mlburch11@gmail.com. You can also try me by phone at (505) 359-1172 (cell doesn't work in JT) or (303)541-0991 (land line). It would be great to work in Jamestown or the surrounding area but I am happy to travel as well.

I look forward to meeting everyone!

Thank you,

Costume swap: I'm looking for a unique new costume and will bring a few of mine to the Merc at 8. I have a great Queen of Hearts and devil's costume; both Frederick's of Hollywood and will fit women sizes 6-12. I'd only like to part with these particular get-ups if I can trade for something good. Can we make a deal?? (jillbielawski at gmail)

TONIGHT at the Mercantile we'll have a delicious finger lickin chicken dinner with lots of yummy sides! Come visit me and Kyle Williams!

We could also make tonight an unofficial costume exchange. If you've got some costume goodies that you want to see someone else utilize - bring it down! BUT Everyone will be in charge of removing their items at the end of the night. (Thanks, Jill for the idea).

I could also use a sequins top if anyone's got one of those for me to borrow this weekend.

See ya at the Merc!

Hi everyone, my dog maverick has apparently learned how to escape my locked and shut apartment. A few helpful townies have already obliged in putting him back inside. If you happen to see a tan little dingo-esque dog running around the Merc, and feel like trying to put him in the lower apartment next door it will be greatly appreciated. Now I just have to learn how to deal with a phase shifting dog that can walk through walls.

Hey neighbors, I just wanted to give you a heads up about the music I have planned for this Saturday, November 1st, at the Mercantile in Jamestown. Back in August I brought up a group that featured my friend Robby Peoples singing and playing a mean harmonica. Someone asked me after the show if he had sold his soul to the devil, he was so good. Well that's a big affirmative and I'm happy to say he'll be coming back on Saturday with his good buddy Mason on the bass this time. Also coming up to play with us for the first time is another great singer and guitarist from Denver, Jonah Wisneski. This is a great lineup, plus you never know who else may pop up for a tune or two. Wear a costume if you are feeling so inclined as there will be a contest with prizes! I hope to see you Saturday!
07:40 PM MT(US)
Need a ride tomorrow:

Is anyone heading down the canyon tomorrow afternoon between 2:30 and 3:30 who could give Mason a ride?

Thank you,

FRIDAY- It's Halloween! Come in before the Elementary School Halloween Party with the kids for early Spaghetti Dinner, and then come by after trick or treating or handing out candy to check out our own Jamestown Halloween tradition: DJ CHAD ZYGOAT spins to the scary movie:

SATURDAY- Mark your weekend calendar now! MR. LEON HILL and Friends are doing the last fish fry of the season! Put on your COSTUME and come party with THE JAMESTOWN HALLOWEEN BAND SHOW CURATED BY CHRIS SHELDON.

I'm one of those households of one, Nancy, and I too have invested in water saving toilets, a front loader washing machine and a water restricter on the shower. When the ditch is running all of my outdoor watering comes from it. I run my dishwasher once a week, do only one load of laundry most weeks and use very little water and yet I pay for two bathrooms. I don't mind paying my fair share, but I can't afford to subsidize larger households, duplexes and/or multiple buildings on one lot. And now a surcharge!!!???

I should have said 'both' ends of town, instead of 'either'. We need someone at both ends of town. So that's two people.

Maybe I should hang out at school more often so I can learn how to write more better.

Halloween Help Needed: Any JVFD or LHFD members who would be able to stand at either end of town to slow traffic down to a safe speed during prime trick-or-treating time this Halloween Night.

In the past we have had JVFD wear their uniforms to give the festivities an official air. It really helps, and the parents appreciate it a lot.

Is there anyone free on Halloween Night, from 6:30 - 7:30, to help out with traffic safety for the kids?

Thanks much, JES Parents and Staff

Water usage-
As we have been going through the permit process for our septic system rebuild,the county and state look at the bedroom count. Seems sensible to me but what do I know. Just sayin....... But I'd also be up for metering. I don't have an issue with paying for what we use.
Nancy E
05:18 PM MT(US)
counting bedrooms and /or bathrooms isn't really fair to folks who are single, without children, work-at-home using one or more bedrooms as an office, seniors, etc. who may have multiple bathrooms and multiple bedrooms but are only 1 or 2 people, and not using as much water as a household of 4-5 with one bathroom. We personally also invested $$ in water efficient dishwasher, clothes washer, and toilets--so 2 people using less water.
Matt Kohlhaas
04:49 PM MT(US)
How about counting both bedrooms and bathrooms?
Kent Weeks
01:37 PM MT(US)
Tim, Kent here. I believe the bedroom count would be more indicative of a residences water use. Pay the surcharge and get on with it!

Well dagone it, bathrooms, bedrooms, outhouses, gardens, whatever? It seems purty simple. My dog might get a bath once or twice a year, which he hates by the way, but in my house it's the peoples that use and sometimes waste the water. Why some days the line to the "lil house on the hill" is loong. Specially day after the "chili blow out" or Taco Bell takeout.
