Show Notes

This week's special Halloween episode features a double dose of Texarkana thrills and chills.

In Part 1, host Karl Richter spoke with Haunted Texarkana Ghost Walk host Scarlett Lewis about the tour and her love of local history, and she shared some of her favorite spooky tales.

Part 2 is a conversation with Pamula Pierce Barcelou, whose father, Charles B. Pierce, made two iconic horror movies — “The Legend of Boggy Creek” and “The Town That Dreaded Sundown” — in and around Texarkana, based on true local stories. She spoke about her father's legacy in the horror genre and beyond, and what she's doing to preserve it.

Happy Halloween!

Mayoral candidates' forum

This week's episode focuses on this year's race for mayor in Texarkana, Texas. Mayor Bob Bruggeman is seeking a fifth consecutive term in office. Former City Council member Brian Matthews is challenging him for the seat. For this forum, we provided both candidates the same seven questions in advance and asked them to limit their responses to two minutes each. Both candidates also had the opportunity to make a two-minute closing statement. They were interviewed separately and their responses were edited together question by question. The responses themselves have not been altered. We gave the incumbent, Mayor Bruggeman, the first word and the challenger, Dr. Matthews, the last. Early voting begins October 18, and Election Day is November 2. As always, the Texarkana Gazette will provide complete coverage of the race and the results.
