Count to 10, Jose. Hold your breath and absorb the reality. Smile as your name is called and you head to the front of the room, one of 50 this morning at the Immigration and Naturalization Service in Baltimore whose life is about to be changed again. Your life was changed when you left El Salvador during its civil war in the 1990s. You were one of the lucky ones who got out instead of being forced to choose to fight for either the rebels or the government.

There's more to do this Halloween than just don a sheet or a witch's hat and call yourself costumed. Take a haunted hike, check out an exhibit on Frankenstein in pop culture or see a play or magic show. And, of course, there are plenty of costume contests to enter. But being a ghost or a witch probably isn't going to win you any prizes. Here's a sampling of some of the Halloween events going on this week: Events Outside Black Beard's Revenge ... Curse of the Severed Head -- 4101 N.E. Crain Highway, Bowie / 301-464-4880 or baysox.
