Crapo's "Capitol Watch" Halloween Special

Monthly cable program to feature U.S. Capitol ghost stories

Washington, DC â??â??Tis the season of tall tales, outlandish claims and downright spooky stories. The U.S. Capitol, which has been the scene of what some may call frightening political behavior, has also been the scene of ghostly events that canâ??t be explained by political pundits. Idaho Senator Mike Crapo will be sharing some ghost stories about the United States Capitol on his October â??Capitol Watchâ?? program, which will air on Tuesday, October 11, 2004, at 7:00 p.m. Mountain/6:00 p.m. Pacific. The program airs statewide on the public access channel on many Idaho cable television systems on the second Tuesday of each month.â??The history of the U.S. Capitol building is punctuated by drama, intrigue and mystery against the backdrop of the day-to-day grind of the business of government,â?? said Crapo. â??These moments of drama and mystery are entertaining to recall. I look forward to sharing some of these stories with viewers in Idaho, and I hope many will join me as I explore this not-so-common history of our U.S. Capitol.â?? â??Capitol Watchâ?? airs in the following cities over the following cable channels:Boise/Nampa/Caldwell11Coeur dâ??Alene19Ketchum97Idaho City37Idaho Falls/Blackfoot19Lewiston13Moscow11Pocatello22Twin Falls60 The program is sponsored by the Idaho Cable Telecommunications Association (ICTA) and local cable systems throughout Idaho.
