• Clean plastic gallon milk jugs • Black permanent marker • Craft knife • String of 50 clear low-wattage holiday lights

Instructions Draw ghost eyes and mouths on the jugs. Tip: Leave the caps on while you do this, so the jugs don’t dent. Use the craft knife to cut a half-dollar-size hole in the back of each jug (a parent’s job). Arrange the ghosts near each other and string the lights between them, stuffing several bulbs into each of the jugs.

The Castle of Grevlin Hill

1946 - Grevlin Hill used to be a great knight’s castle. People would pray to him at night, just like they prayed to God. Every moment he spoke to the crowd, he said, “I listen to all of your prayers at night in bed.” Nobody expected this, but one night, his maid walked in and dropped her tray at a hideous sight. His head was detached and blood surrounded him. “How and why had this happened?” the people asked, but no answer was given. 2005 - The castle of Grevlin Hill still stands, yet not as a castle but as an orphanage, one of the luckiest orphanages ever. Katlen, who was new there, thought the world of the orphanage and loved it dearly. Even so, she didn’t want to stay. Not because of the spooky atmosphere, but because of her need for parents... a family... a place to get warm dinners and great, smashing beds. One night, Katlen needed the toilet. She didn’t care that is was dark and spooky, or that the bathroom was way on the other side of the castle. She just got up for the journey. On the way, she saw something in the corner of her eye. She turned around to see a man holding his head. He looked at her and said “Go on, scream and run.” Katlen seemed to find this funny as it didn’t even cross her mind to do that. The dead knight asked, “What are you laughing at?” She straightened up and told him why she was laughing. “So you are not scared?” the knight asked. “No,” Katlen said. “What’s the point? So you’re dead. Who cares?” The knight quickly shot back “Well, a lot of people care. They do worry!” She saw that he was confused, and to think about it, so was she. They talked a bit and got to know each other. Then one night, Katlen asked him how he died. He looked to the ground and said “Suicide. I chopped off my own head.” When she asked him why, he said “Because I didn’t want to be stuck around here.” She asked “Why not go somewhere else?” He said “I was thinking about that but then I realized that I lived here my whole life and didn’t want to be here no more. I mean live anymore. God didn’t like what I did and punished me. He said I have to stay in this castle until a girl says, ‘I love you.’” Immediately, she said “I love you” and he disappeared. - Story by Bradley Archer

Horoscope Libra

9/23 – 10/22

Weekly Overview (Week starting on October 25) You’re much more forthcoming than usual on Monday, and a regular conversation could turn into a true heart-toheart. Then, around Tuesday and Wednesday, a personal or work project could hit a roadblock; while you figure out a detour, offer someone else some roadside assistance. Doing so is great for your karma. Friends and relationships are favored from Thursday through Saturday. You’ve got a great vibe at that time, and everyone wants to be by your side. (They may want your advice, too.) Doing as little as possible may be the most appealing way to spend your Sunday (and why not?).

Thinking LOUD Out The Case of the Disappearing Chocolate — and Waistline I dread Halloween. Love the kids and their costumes. Love the pumpkins. Love remembering the anticipation as the sun begins to set and a night of doorbells and giggles begins to unfold. Hate, hate, hate the weeks before hand. I buy a giant bag of candy, and within hours, I can hear it calling to me. So I pop a little hole in one corner and remove one miniature chocolate bar. A week later, the bag is empty, the rest of those miniature chocolate bars having somehow escaped from that tiny hole behind closed cabinet doors. I buy another, and the same thing happens — so the day before Halloween, I buy two more bags, just in case, which usually leaves a whole bag of leftover sweets the day after, and they, too, disappear. Drives me crazy. And that’s not the only reason I dread Halloween. It’s the unexplained weight gain. That mystifies me even more than all those missing candy bars.

• My mom recently found out about all of the funny and entertaining videos on Youtube. I recommended a few for her to watch and then went about my business. Half an hour later I walked into the kitchen and found her sitting there with a frustrated look on her face. I asked her, “What videos did you watch?” Her response was, “None. I don’t like that Youtube thing. I couldn’t even get to the videos because it was asking me what my birthday was and it wanted the last four digits of my social security number. I decided it wasn’t a good idea to tell that to someone I don’t know personally.” After commending her for her wise decision, I found that she had closed the window. To this day I have no idea what website she was actually on or how she got there from youtube.

Week’s BEST Technically Challenged • I am applying to colleges right now and my mom refused to let me apply by myself because I might “turn off the internet.” So, while looking up a college on Google, my mom accidentally put a colon in the name of the school she was searching for. Google knew what she was looking for and displayed the school anyway. But, instead of just clicking the link, my mom clicked back to the Google home page and retyped the name and hit enter. When I asked her why she did this, she said she didn’t want the school to think I couldn’t spell.

Week’s BEST Riddles I drift forever with the current
down these long canals they’ve made.
Tame, yet wild, I run elusive.
Multitasking to your aid.
 Before I came, the world was darker.
Colder, sometimes, rougher. But though I might make living easy,
I’m good at killing people too.

Week’s BEST Riddles

CRIER www.ThevalleyCrier.Com

My days are in the summer.
You’ll eat me when I’m hot.
In fact I’ll even eat myself, where battles tough are fought.
But when you find me in a fight
‘Twill be high in the sky. 
And if you catch me napping
I suggest you let me lie.
When you’re bad come to my house.
From Ma get thoughts profound
am I big or am I small?
Some say I’m just a pound.
