Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Well, Halloween is over for another year, and here we are in November! Thank you to the Barker Lions and Lighthouse Optimist Club for sponsoring the Halloween party at Barker School. Special thanks to Barker Mayor Aaron Nellist, Town Supervisor Dan Engert and wife Marie, and Jeff Pyskaty for helping out as judges.
