The Spirit of Standing Rock, Halloween in Hot Springs

Jessica Fears of Ames and Patti Edwardson of Churdan, Iowa, describe their trip to Cannonball, North Dakota, to witness the struggle of Native Americans opposing the pipeline and provide assistance at their camp. In Iowa, Dakota Access is laying pipe on the land of farmers who have not yet had their day in court contesting "eminent domain" seizure; those arrested on this farmland are pleading "not guilty" to trespassing charges.

Allyson Walter of Ames Convention and Visitors Bureau outlines some of the many happenings planned for November. Trick-or-treat in Ames, Boone, and Nevada goes from 5:30 to 7:30 PM tonight. ISU basketball starts on November 11th. And, Nevada's S.C.O.R.E. complex will host a multi-state quidditch--yes, quidditch--tournament.

Finally, we check in with Aaron Buckley, who lives in a neighborhood of Hot Springs, Arkansas that routinely attracts 2000 visitors on Halloween night. He describes the various mini-theme-parks constructed by his neighbors, as well as his own 1977 Star Wars-themed display.
