SUWANEE - Youngsters are invited to test out their costumes and get a head start on Halloween festivities at the City of Suwanee's annual Trek or Treat event from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, October 26, at Suwanee Creek Park.<br />
Activities include festival games, crafts, inflatables, dance competitions, and pictures with Parker, the City of Suwanee's over-sized canine mascot. A free hot dog lunch will be available while supplies last. <br />
Trek or Treat is a free event designed particularly for children 10 and younger. <br />
For a more "thrilling" Halloween experience, older children and adults might consider the Aurora Theatre's Terror on the Trail, taking place at Sims Lake Park on Friday and Saturday evenings through the end of October. Tickets and information are available at www.scarystroll.com/tot.html.<br />
Ten months to next year's midterm elections, Democrats are determined to make Congress' slim production of fewer than 60 laws and plenty of incompletes - on immigration, gun control, tax reform and basic spending bills - a defining issue, heaping much of the blame on the GOP-led House for obstructing President Barack Obama's second-term agenda.
U.S. home prices rose in October from the previous year at the fastest pace in almost eight years. But price gains slowed in most U.S. cities from September to October, suggesting the increases are leveling off.
Police have identified a man shot near the Underground Atlanta shopping and entertainment complex in the city's downtown area.
Authorities say the suspected gunman ran to Underground Atlanta after firing shots at another man near Peachtree Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
Police later identified the victim as at 24-year-old Khiry Clemons.
