KINGSBURG, Calif. (KSEE) – A home in Kingsburg decked out for Halloween is gaining national attention.

All week, NBC’s Today show has featured houses across the country decorated for Halloween.

On Tuesday morning, KSEE24 Sunrise anchor Caroline Collins was there as the show featured Amanda Wilkins and her frightening display live on national television.

The ghosts and goblins seemed even scarier at 5:30 a.m. when Wilkins stood outside of her home on north 5 1/2 Avenue and Avenue 384.

“I always told myself when I own my own home, I’m gonna go big and that’s what we have been doing every year,” Wilkins explained.

Wilkins was still in shock that the photos of her decorations she submitted as part of Today’s “Spookiest House in America” segment were selected amongst thousands of other entries.

“I’m going ‘oh my god.’ It didn’t feel real to me at all! Still doesn’t feel real!” said Wilkins.

That feeling of disbelief may have been scared off when she stepped in front of the lights and cameras for the Today show.

The 34-year-old spends months leading up to the Halloween season preparing her decorations and coming up with her ‘evil plan’ to make sure she has the spookiest house on the block.

This year, Wilkins handcrafted wooden cemetery fences, rigged up vomiting skeletons, and added special effects to her windows making the house look as if it was burning up.

But even when it’s not the Halloween season, some of Wilkins’ skeleton decorations have become a permanent fixture.

“They actually stay up and I dress them for every holiday,” Wilkins explained. “The kids around us love it. They gave him a name. Mr. Bones. They will put me on blast if I do not dress him accordingly or if he is not dressed for the next holiday.”

While bringing national attention to Kingsburg is sweet like trick-or-treat candy, Wilkins said it’s the local people who stop to admire the horrifying sight that makes the months of preparation all worth it.“It has been non-stop since everything has been lit up. It’s been every night and we absolutely love it. We love that people will park and they will get to see everything up close and personal,” said Wilkins.

A home impressing even those in New York City live on Today.

“Thank you so much,” said Today co-host Hoda, “I cannot believe what people do that’s amazing!”

The Central Section’s top division played out as expected with the top four seeds advancing. As for the semifinal matchups, well, they are biggies.

No. 4 San Joaquin Memorial (9-2) is facing No. 1 Clovis West (10-1) and No. 3 Liberty (9-2) is traveling to No. 2 Buchanan (9-2).

We wish we could be in two places at once.

Scratch that. We wish we could be in four places at once.

In D2, top seed Central Valley Christian continues their unbeaten season and will face high flying Hanford. Lemoore, the hottest team in the section, welcomes No. 7 seed Frontier, who upset Kingsburg.

The premier game might be the Liberty at Buchanan game. The teams faced off in early September and Buchanan won a 35-27 at Liberty shorted 11 minutes by lightning. The Patriots had all the momentum. Watch the video above to see the reaction of both teams afterward. Both had a strong feeling they would see each other in November.

These guys will settle it all on the field, but alas, here are SBLive’s Top 15 Central Section teams heading into the semifinals.

Clovis West (10-1)Last week rank: No. 1Last week result: Defeated Clovis 24-21Next game: Friday vs San Joaquin MemorialBackup quarterback Tyler Patrick threw three TDs, including a 99-yarder to Marshel Sanders late in the third quarter, and over 300 yards to lead the Golden Eagles to a 24-21 win, advancing the D1 semifinals.

KINGSBURG, Calif. — Another week, another Central Section classic.

The game between unbeaten and ranked squads, the No. 5 Central Valley Christian Cavaliers and sixth-ranked Kingsburg Vikings lived up to the hype Friday night.

Bryson Donelson scored on a 5-yard run with 1 minuted, 3 seconds left, wiping out a 26-21 deficit and giving the visiting Cavaliers a 27-21 win.

CVC's defense held the Vikings on a final drive to capture the win and remain undefeated on the season at 8-0. CVC hosts Washington Union next week.

Max Bakker finished 16-for-29 for 169 yards and two touchdowns and Donelson had 19 carries for 81 yards and the other two touchdowns for Central Valley Christian.

Zach Zwart had eight receptions for 76 yards and the two touchdowns from Bakker.

“It was awesome to be able to contribute tonight,” Zwart said after the game. “This was a big game for us and a big rivalry and it was a fun game.”

The Vikings fell to 7-1 overall and 2-1 in the Tri-County conference. They travel to Reedley next week.

The Cavaliers got on the board first when Bakker connected with Zwart on a 20-yard touchdown early in the first quarter to give the Cavaliers a 7-0 lead.

Kingsburg tied the game at 7-7 midway through the second quarter when Ethan Winslow connected with Wyatt Boyd on a 41-yard touchdown pass.

Donelson rushed for his first score of the game later in the second quarter to give CVC a 15-7 lead after a successful two-point conversion attempt.

Winslow ran a sneak from the 1 to cut the CVC lead to 15-14 at halftime.

The Cavaliers received the opening kickoff of the second half looking to take control. On the possession, Bakker was intercepted by Kingsburg’s Dennis Gagnon at the CVC 44.

On the next play, Winslow connected with Conner McFall to give Kingsburg its first lead, 20-15 with 10:04 left in the third.

The lead didn't last long.

CVC immediately responded to take a 21-20 lead when Bakker and Zwart connected on a 24-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter.

Kingsburg once again responded on their ensuing possession when Trace Jackson raced into the end zone from 29 yards away to give the Vikings a 26-21 lead with 6:35 left.

A two-point conversion attempted failed.

The Cavaliers down 26-21 with 53 seconds left in the game, scored to take the lead when Donelson ran in a 5-yard touchdown to go up 27-26.

Kingsburg had one final drive, starting from its own 30. The Vikings got to the CVC 47, but a long fourth-down pass from Winslow fell incomplete. The Cavaliers ran out the clock.

“We just had to keep pushing and we played a heck of a game,” Donelson said. “Our crowd was pushing; their crowd was pushing, and we were just building off the energy.”

Despite the loss, Kingsburg head coach David Wilson was happy with how his team performed against a tough opponent. The Vikings did a nice job containing Oregon-bound defensive linemen Jaeden Moore, who had 17 college offers.

“We play good football here at Kingsburg and CVC knew they would be in a fight,” Wilson said. “It was a fight, but we had our opportunities and that was a bit frustrating. It is a gut-check for our program because we have lofty goals, and those goals are still in play. If tonight proved anything it just proved that we could play with the best in the Valley and we are excited about it.”

Kingsburg was led by Winslow who finished the game 17-for- 29 for 231 yards and two touchdowns.

Jackson had 16 carries for 67 yards and a touchdown and Boyd contributed five catches for 101 yards and another score.

McFall added five catches for 78 yards and a touchdown.

Donelson, playing in just his third game after having to sit out due to transfer rules, said that the battle against Kingsburg was a great test for the team. And himself.

The first two games, the three-star recruit with offers from Fresno State, San Jose State and New Mexico, had already piled up 432 rushing yards on 19 carries (22.7 average) and six touchdowns. He also added four catches for 114 yards and a TD again Selma in a 64-13 win.

“Our chemistry makes us good. We are all like brothers,” Donelson said. “This game gives us experience that we need going forward the rest of the season. We are all exhausted we now know what it feels like to fight all four quarters.”

'He raped my son': Violent court outburst as Kingsburg child sex convict delays punishment

FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) -- A violent outburst disrupted court Tuesday morning after a victim's family found out a Kingsburg man who admitted to child sex crimes would not be punished as planned.

The family's anger had simmered for months as Brandon Howard's case worked its way through the court system.

On Tuesday, their rage reached a boiling point and instead of the sex offender going to jail, it was three of the victim's family members in trouble.

The trouble started with a shove.

It ended with a victim's brother in jail for allegedly attacking a law enforcement officer, his mother and father both cited for misdemeanor battery.

"He raped my son," the mother shouted from a courthouse hallway as sheriff's deputies detained her. "You guys don't understand. He raped my son."

EMBED <>More Videos

Police say 19-year-old Brandon Howard used his position at a retail store to coerce underage teens into sexual activity.

In May, Howard admitted to three felony sex crimes involving minors.

EMBED <>More Videos

The mother who went after Howard on Tuesday told Action News in May she expected him to walk away with minimal punishment.

"I'm numb," she said. "I just want him to stay in jail for as long as possible and always have to register as a sexual offender."

The sentencing was scheduled for Tuesday, and since he's not in custody, Howard stood just feet away from the mother as he asked the judge to delay his punishment.

After her shove, sheriff's deputies say the victim's father got her out of the courtroom.

In the meantime, a brother lunged in Howard's direction before two officers took him down.

The father came back into the courtroom with his fist cocked.

When he walked away, Howard grabbed at the side of his head with an apparent injury.

"You know, it's very emotional to watch that," said legal analyst Tony Capozzi. "You can feel sorry for that family. It's just, you can feel the emotion of the family and to see someone in court who did something to their child. It's hard not to react the way they did, but you can't do that."

Howard is due back in court now in September, but the victim's three family members won't be allowed in the courtroom.
