In this week's Humboldt Independent there was a story about Halloween activities in the area. One paragraph was inadvertently misplaced in the article. There will not be free hot dogs offered as part of the Humboldt County Historical Museum Trick or Treat night on Saturday, Oct. 29. The free hot dogs will be part of the Trunk or Treat event at the LifeGate Fellowship Church on Highway 169 North, also on Oct. 29, from 4-6 p.m. The Humboldt Independent apologies for the error. The correct article is printed in its entirety below.
