Brad's Beat: Joplin Woman Rebuilds Halloween Collection
By Brad Douglas
JOPLIN, MO.--- A Joplin woman is rebuilding her Halloween collection after the May 22nd tornado destroyed much of it. Arlita Gullett lives near the Joplin High School. Her roof and garage were destroyed in the tornado, and it took more than 500 Halloween items. Since then, she has replaced about 75% of them and has added to them. She says her love of Halloween is bigger than a EF-5.
"I'm just trying to rebuild. People will come by and say 'I'm so happy you're doing it again," said Arlita Gullett, Loves Halloween.
If you would like to check out the house, it's located at 1211 Little Court in Joplin, near the high school.
