It's that time again - time for eerie journeys to the edge of horror and back again. Every place is decked out in its scariest themes, including Disneyland and Magic Mountain. The new seasonal attractions inspire every level of fear - from cute little skeletons trying to make Christmas in a Halloween world to dizzying mazes that will "rattle your bones and leave you crying tears of terror." At Disneyland, Jack Skellington has once again arrived from Halloweentown to decorate the Haunted Mansion.

Imagine going on tour and skating all the great skate parks that exist in Los Angeles. You sport your pads and helmet, take your board and hang out with your friends. The next day, it?s off to another skate park. Then another. One day you go on excursion to Raging Waters ? just to vary things a little bit. The next day, you?re ripping concrete with your pals doing ollies, dropping into bowls and defying gravity in ways that would make Isaac Newton jealous. For seven hours, and $200 a week, kids that took part in the city of Glendale?

by Charly Shelton This year there is a whole plethora of attractions for Halloween at the theme parks around our area. From Disneyland to Magic Mountain, there is an incredible selection to choose from. At Disneyland, "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas" comes alive again in the Haunted Mansion. Jack Skellington and his friends from Halloween Town are trying to make Christmas, but when the two holidays collide, there are bound to be a few flaws. This attraction is only somewhat scary, children from 6 years old and up should be OK. Six Flags Magic Mountain is a big Halloween place this time of the year with the Fright Fest.

Sections of the Angeles National Forest closed by the initial Station fire response were scheduled to reopen Wednesday after U.S. Forest Service officials determined the areas were no longer dangerous. The public can access the Magic Mountain Wilderness, large portions of Pleasant View, Horse Flats and the Millard Campground near La Cañada Flintridge, among other areas. The reopened portions were never burned by the massive Station fire, but fell under restricted areas established to protect the public from run off, debris and other impacts of the adjacent charred landscape, forest officials said.

Somehow, time eludes us. It's a great equalizer — we all get the same amount in each day, yet we crave more. If we had more time then we could walk the dog, wash the car, read that book or take a child to the park. Just another hour and we could accomplish so much more — maybe catch up on the laundry, learn a new language, take up an instrument or volunteer for a worthy cause. Ah, volunteerism. Many of us become overwhelmed, feeling that we don't have enough time to make a difference.
