I am a big fan of advertising. When I started at The Madera Tribune in 1995, I sold retail advertising. The ad department was the only one with an opening at the time.

Life as seen from the perspective of a longtime Maderan.
Last Tuesday was election day and next Tuesday is Veterans Day.
Honor your loved ones who have passed from this life to the other side during this period (Sunday) known as All Souls Day, Day of the Dead and Dia de los Muertos.
Halloween is just six days away. The night when the line between the mortal and spirit world is the thinnest.
I love the comics pages. They were part of how I learned to read using the newspaper. We lived out in the country and my parents subscribed to the Tribune and the Fresno Bee throughout my childhood.
My birthday is next week. When my parents were alive, birthdays were a big deal. Every year I got a Halloween birthday party as a kid, which explains why I believe I own Halloween.
It is mine.
October has finally arrived. Pumpkins, goblins, ghosts and witches are everywhere. Halloween is just 27 days away and I can feel it in the air.
Or is it something else?
