Three Horror Movies With Ties to Quincy, Hannibal and Edina

A couple days ago, I was in the store and noticed that Halloween stuff was already starting to go on display.

What is the Biggest Tearjerker Movie of All Time?

What movies make you cry every time you watch them? I was listening to a speaker on a conference call talk about how he cried while watching 'Toy Story 3.' I'll admit, that was a title I wasn't expecting. There are movies out there that can bring even the toughest among us to tears, even after watching them multiple times. I did a Google search on the subject and found several online lists naming the biggest tearjerkers. Here are some of the most common titles that seem to appear over and over.

We're going to give away passes to 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off,' which is showing at Main Street Cinema 8 in Hannibal as part of their Retro Night series. A few weeks back, the theater had 'Dirty Dancing' at Retro Night. Both of those movies are favorites with a TON of people, and are often listed as movies that fans have watched over and over again.

6th Annual Cadan’s Carnival For CDH Awareness Taking Place at Quincy Knights of Columbus – an Interview With Tiffany Frericks

The 6th annual Cadan's Carnival Halloween event will take place October 19 at the Quincy Knights of Columbus. The carnival is held in memory of Cadan Christopher Frericks, son of Tiffany and Rome Frericks, who passed away only weeks after his birth due to complications from Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH), a birth defect where the diaphragm does not properly form, allowing the abdominal organs to move up into the chest. The carnival is held in Cadan's honor, and raises awareness of CDH and funds for CDH research. Cadan's mom, Tiffany, was kind enough to give us a few moments of her time for an interview.

So of course I had to track down the video to see for myself.
