Crafting the creepiest Halloween yard display is all about the details for Sue Rager and her husband, Rick. In their makeshift parlor room, a faded family photo hangs on the wall, and antique children’s crutches prop up a doll. There’s a 100-year-old rocking chair and 19th century vacuum.
The smoked salmon sandwich ($9.99 with fries and coleslaw) is a new menu item at Just Shrimp in Tinley Park that has proven popular among diners, according to co-owner John Mihalos.
