Getting ahead in a one-horse town

Leslie Long drove with 6-year-old daughter Sabella from Rosburg Sunday to witness one of the Long Beach Peninsula’s best Halloween traditions. The headless horseman is a legendary figure that dates back well beyond Washington Irvine, who wrote “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” in 1820. But locals also know it is a fixture of the Halloween season in Chinook, where the splendid equine and its ghostly rider have reportedly been making their memorable appearances since about 2008. And, unlike others who might want to reveal all, we aren’t saying who, how, what or why.
