For the eighth year “Nightmare on Vista Court” offers a professionally produced haunted house/maze production at no charge. This year’s theme is a complete haunted castle filled with movie set quality props, actors, and professional audio sound. Nine years ago, homeowners David and Alisa Krohn felt out of place at Halloween since no trick or treaters visited their ‘dead’ end, cul-de-sac street. Longtime friends Gary and Steve Trousdale had done haunted houses since the late 1980s and they worked with the Krohns to put on their first haunted house.

Tis now the very witching time of night,” William Shakespeare wrote. And that time has once again come to Foothills. On Halloween night lost souls will roam Foothill streets looking for appeasement in the form of candy. And those searching for the frightening and the macabre will have their choice of two homes that have been transformed from “Leave it to Beaver” suburbia to “The Addams Family.” For sixth years Nightmare on Vista Court has terrified and entertained those strong at heart that dare to enter their door.

by Charly Shelton "'Twas a long time ago, longer now than it seem as, in a place that perhaps you've seen in your dreams. For the story that you are about to be told began with the holiday worlds of old." The Nightmare Before Christmas, as the movie is named, is loved by many, and has enormous fame. It's the tale of a skeleton, Jack Skellington, in fact in his world inhabited by monsters and bats. Jack is the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, but the pedantry of his holiday has got him down.

A onetime Deutsche Bank executive and former co-chair of Universal Pictures testified in court Wednesday that he had taken bath salts 20 times prior to his run-in with Los Angeles police - but that it did not make him paranoid. Brian Mulligan has sued the Los Angeles Police Department for excessive force . The La Cañada Flintridge resident took the stand in the trial, which began this week, testifying that an officer's baton fractured his nose and broke his shoulder blade, the Los Angeles Times reports . Mulligan said the last time he took the synthetic drug he called "white lightning" was two weeks prior to the May 2012 encounter with police.

LA HABRA - It took a nightmare inning to end the turnaround season the La Cañada High baseball team dreamed up before the year began in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division IV playoffs Tuesday. On two different occasions, the Spartans held a two-run lead on the road at Sonora High, but they seemed like distant memories when the Raiders exploded for six runs on six hits, two La Cañada errors and a leadoff walk in the bottom of the fifth inning that fueled their 8-5 victory.

Are there two more polarizing words in the dictionary than “Obamacare” and “affordable”? Let's see, three years and $630 million to set up the online enrollment process. System crashes within a week and no one in Obama's house knows what to do. Sound familiar? Well, much like the solar power hustle, somebody absconded with some $600 million of taxpayers' money. If this is a window of what to expect with the implementation of Obamacare, can you imagine the nightmare that is coming?

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.
