Haunting on Oak Street


Those who have driven past Bob Lakin’s home on Oak Street have been anticipating Halloween for the past three weeks. That’s how long Lakin has been setting up in preparation for the haunting holiday Wednesday.

More than 19 homemade monsters, ghouls and plenty of fake human parts litter Lakin’s yard, inviting all those who dare find out whether it will be a trick or treat greeting them at the door.
