5 Tips to Keeping Trick or Treating Spook-tacular:
1. Avoid having your child wear a full mask, but if they do, make sure the holes for their eyes are large enough for them to see clearly in all directions. Also make sure that they can easily breathe through the mask. If you need to enlarge the holes, you can always use a dark face paint to cover their skin.
2. All costumes should be able to be seen at night by either using bright colors or by adding reflective tape to the costume and trick or treat bags. Make sure the costume is not too long or their night will be filled with trip & fall tricks rather than treats!
3. Make sure your children know that they cannot eat any of the candy or other treats until it has been properly inspected by you (and you’ve had time to pick out your favorites of course!). It’s always helpful to feed the little monsters before they go so that they are full and can easily wait to feast when they get home.
4. Know the route! Have a designated start and stop time – going only on streets you are familiar with that are well-lit areas. Don’t go to houses that are not lit or that you are not sure are participating in the event. Don’t take short-cuts through parking lots, alleys, etc. Never go inside a house – the treats can be received on the porch.
5. If you are driving your children around in and out of different residential areas, always stay well below posted speed limits and watch for fast moving little angels and scarecrows. You want to be sure you have extra time to break if one darts in front of you.

Although this is not related to any legal issue, please allow a proud Dad to share some news about his son. The Mullins family (me, Wendy and Gavin) recently attended a Cleveland Browns football game in Cleveland. I am a lifelong Browns fan as was my Dad, Jake. Gavin started liking the Browns when he was probably 3 or 4. Wendy had arranged to have Gavin go onto the field and retrieve the kicking tee after the second half kick. It was also a treat for me as I got to accompany Gavin through the players’ tunnel and out onto the field. It was a great experience and Gavin was written up on the Browns’ team website.

Coxwell & Associates once again sponsored a local youth sports team: the Madison Ridgeland Orioles. Partner Chuck Mullins (pictured above with wife Wendy and son Gavin) coached the Orioles along with Scott Cook and his brother Allan Cook. The Orioles completed a remarkable undefeated season going 15-0 and captured the Madison Ridgeland World Series title. Thanks to Coxwell & Assocates for its continued involvement in the community!

Chuck Mullins has been a lawyer for almost 17 years and enjoys coaching youth sports, especially his son Gavin. Learn more about Chuck at the Coxwell & Associates website.

On July 8th, 2009 I left Jackson, MS and headed to Jackson Hole Wyoming. I spent the night there and the next day headed to The Thunderhead Ranch in Dubois, WY. The Thunderhead Ranch is the location for Trial Lawyers College (TLC) founded by famed trial lawyer, Jerry Spence (if you do not know him Google Jerry Spence). The ranch was once a 30,000 acre working cattle ranch. It is nestled between mountains and the ranch is split in half by the cold, clear flowing Wind River.

When I arrived I was assigned a roommate who was Mark Choate from Alaska. There were 52 other lawyers accepted to The Trial Lawyers College for July. The accommodations are simple but comfortable. The Big Barn as we call it is just that-a huge barn. The top floor of the barn serves as the largest classroom capable of holding all the students and many staff members. The bottom of the barn contains about twenty rooms with double occupancy. Each room has a bed, table, chair, and a lamp. The rooms are smaller than a college dorm room. The is a wing that is connected to the barn at a perpendicular angle that houses about twenty other students. The men and women have separate bathrooms in the Big Barn. The bathrooms reminded me of the high school locker rooms. Clean but little privacy.

Scattered across the ranch are other small cottages that house both students and staff members. These cottages are charming and set back in the trees by the river. You can hear the Wind river from almost every room. There are no air conditioners at the Ranch. The weather is mind and pleasant during the day and cool or many times chilly at night. There are also classrooms on the grounds with names such as the Milk Barn, Johnson Barn, Rec Room, ect. Everyone eats at the mess hall. The College has engaged a culinary chef to prepare the meals. The food is fantastic and you never lack for something to eat or drink. The mess hall is open 24 hours.
