    whomever set date and hours here in freeport. Please consider the children, they are very fragile and need to be thought of from impending snow fall and cold weather. have some consideration for them and change the date for them and the time it starts getting dark at 5 now. I have no small children but I still care about their welfare.

    I believe this to be a good change for 2 reasons, the first and most important one is for the well being of the kids, the second reason is on Halloween Dakota hosted the volleyball regional championships and there were hundreds (maybe even a thousand) more people in Dakota for that and the traffic that it caused, made for a more dangerous night especially when you consider the weather.
