On 2 Kasa This Morning

Did you know your kids have the chance to help hundreds of local service men and women just by trick-or-treating tonight? Here with me is Doctor Byron Wall from Cosmetic Dentistry of New Mexico, who tells us more about the Halloween candy buy back program.

Tonight is the night ghosts and goblins will be trailing and making their way through strange and familiar neighborhoods to get their treats, but as a parent, you can’t always be sure what they’re getting. We have been discussing Halloween for weeks now and we’ve taken away some of the guess work about where to head for trick or treating tonight, but it’s also a treat for mom and dad.

The Haunted Scarecrow was voted the scariest and best haunted house in New Mexico last year by Hauntworld.com. It’s also the only non-profit haunted house in Albuquerque. Here now is the executive director, Jeff Lepori and some very evil characters from the haunted house.

Tonight is the holiday meant for many to have fun and celebrate by eating candy and goodies, but for many, that’s not such an easy thing to have on a day to day basis. For the unfortunate who depend on the kindness of others to eat, some businesses are turning this holiday into a chance to help make that happen for them. David Romero is live at Coronado center where they will be doing that tonight.

Are you or do you have a son or daughter who’s looking to get involved? Or maybe wanting to make an impact on the Albuquerque community? If so, you need to check out the Young Professionals of Albuquerque! Here with me now is Andrew Valencia, vice president of the Young Professionals of Albuquerque.

If ghosts and goblins don’t scare you, then how about a Thai bamboo rat snake and lizard? It’s just one of the many creeping, crawling or slithering creatures at an exhibit. Here with us now is Doug Hotle, curator of reptiles and amphibians at the Albuquerque BioPark!

The internet is an essential part of our lives and now days a very important part of kids’ education but some kids simply can’t surf the web at home because they can’t afford the internet or even a computer. Comcast is changing that with the help of a super bowl winning coach and education advocate Tony Dungy. He’s here today along with Comcast’s executive vice president David Cohen.

After you and the kids get home from trick-or-treating, why not read a fun Halloween book with them as they sort through the candy? Here with me now is Conni Griffin, children’s book specialist at Bookworks.
