Who is the Carlisle Phantom?
Have you been spooked? Several Carlisle homes have been visited in the evening by a mysterious phantom dressed in black leaving a candy-filled pumpkin. A note accompanying the candy warns "witches, ghosts, and vampires are ready to give you a scare. Soon these creatures will be here. Lock everything tight and beware of the night, unless you pass candy to three of your friends within five days." The phantom "chain letter" has spread throughout town, so be warned if you hear your doorbell some evening.
(Note: It might be a good time to remind your kids not to open the door to a stranger.)
