Here is a statement from the Frederick Police Department

“Both the Frederick Police Department and The City of Frederick have been receiving inquiries as to the status of tonight’s Trick-or-Treating. As this is not a city-sponsored event, it is up to each community to make the decision to postpone or not.

We can tell you FPD will be out and about tonight and officers may possibly have goodie bags (ok they will).

If you have children who will be trick-or-treating tonight, here are a couple of tips.
1. Stay on the sidewalks and out of the roadways.
2. Modify the costume – pin up long dresses, wear comfortable shoes, carry masks instead of wearing them.
3. Stay in well-lit areas.
4. and most importantly – trash bags make excellent impromptu rain jackets.

Have fun, be safe, and call us if you need us – we will be here!”

It’s A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood!

As you may know, I was born an raised in Pittsburgh, PA….I, along with many of you, grew up watching Mr. Rogers…. Mr Roger’s Neigborhood was filmed at WQED, the PBS TV station in Pittsburgh. When I was a kid, I thought it was a local program and didn’t realize exactly how big of a deal Fred Rogers was…. As I got older, it was apparent that not only was Mr Rogers helping kids in the Burgh, it was world wide!…. We’d see Mr. Rogers and his cast of characters all over town. Mr McFeely, Joe Negri and more…. When I found out that one of my favorite actors, Tom Hanks, would be portraying Mr Rogers, I was excited! Now that the trailer for the film is out…. I CANNOT WAIT to see this movie! – Brian Mo
