By Jan Rahn
Halloween is a time of fun and laughter, wearing costumes, gathering candy, and being silly or scary.
Unfortunately, safety issues accompany this day each year and there are always ways that children can get hurt if they don’t follow certain guidelines set forth by their parents or other adults in charge.
As a reminder, there are currently three sex offenders registered in Perkins County, and parents may wish to monitor their children while trick-or-treating near where these residents live.
The sex offender registry is a service of the Nebraska State Patrol and anyone can access the public information concerning who is registered in the county.
