MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Halloween is coming early this year! While Marquette will still hold normal trick-or-treat hours on Halloween day, the 100 & 200 blocks of Washington St. will be closed from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. on October 29 for safe trick-or-treating.

Plus... you can win big bucks in the Powerball lottery or by putting your love of chili on camera.

Early trick-or-treating, Powerball climbs, and a chili commissioner job opening.

Also... retired school teacher Phil Lynch is now making music full-time from his so-called “bedroom studio”.

With the recent release of his second album this year, Lynch stopped by Upper Michigan Today to offer a special deal on his CD.

Phil Lynch went from full-time educator to full-time musician, recently releasing his second album recorded from home.

“Someplace Special” was inspired by a TV6 jingle contest years ago. Lynch didn’t win, but he turned his one-minute tune into a full-length beat.

"Someplace Special" started as a one-minute jingle.

Lynch closes out the show with his titular song “U.P. Love Letter”.

This is a recording of Upper Michigan Today.
