Halloween is coming up on Wednesday and usually as the kids go trick or treating, brilliant colors are pass_nd most of the leaves are down. Not so as of this writing in 2007. Warmer temperatures have been cited as the reason we have not seen the brilliant colorful panoramas as many previous years. The warmer temperatures tend to cause the leaves to turn dull colors and eventually fall off. But the kids will be on the streets at Halloween and drivers should use more caution, especially during the early evening hours. Dinner and entertainment Saturday
