I had absolutely no intention of reviewing the Halloween night recital presented by Monte Maxwell, the Juilliard-trained Texan who was appointed organist of the Naval Academy Chapel in February.It was to be a purely recreational evening for the family, a chance to yank the kids away from the sugary greed of trick-or-treating to hear a bit of spooky music banged out on that mighty chapel organ.But what I experienced was so thoroughly delightful that I couldn't help thinking that the academy might have bestowed on us another holiday tradition that could last for many years.

After killing his estranged wife's boyfriend on Halloween night, an Anne Arundel County officer continued firing his department-issued handgun indiscriminately, even as his 5- and 6-year-old sons were frozen in place in the family's Millersville home, the wife said yesterday. Lisa Frendlich, 34, said she swooped up the boys - one under each arm - and carried them outside before returning to the living room to try to persuade her husband not to take his life. Ignoring her pleas, Officer David Keith Frendlich fatally shot himself in the head, his wife said in an interview.

Pranksters and prowlers were at a minimum Halloween night, Howard County police said, with only four incidents -- three involving juveniles who had their candy stolen.Anne Dodd, manager of Columbia's Kings Contrivance village, said it was sad and troubling that crimes occurred against children trying to get treats."Any crime is a concern to us, but a crime against a child on Halloween is especially sad," she said. "On the one hand, it is disconcerting and a shame to have crime on Halloween night, a night for fun for kids, but the night seemed to have consisted of relatively little crime overall."

Some things you learn during an autumn sightseeing tour:A drive along the back roads reveals cow crossing signs, but not many road signs, so keep a good map in the car.If you misread the map and need to turn around in someone's driveway, you may back into a cornfield.If you travel at night, expect to see "snow" flying into your headlights. But you'll soon realize it's the wheat blowing off the fields as a dedicated farmer mows after sundown.Folks wave from their front porches as you drive down McKinstry's Mill Road in Linwood.

Halloween is my favorite holiday.You don't have to buy a bunch of presents for people. You don't have to cook. And your mother doesn't call you and ask, with that familiar tone in her voice, "Well, are you coming home for Halloween this year?"I have the fondest memories of Halloween from my childhood. My father would carve the pumpkin on Halloween night, scooping great gobs of pumpkin glop onto newspaper. Seems like I was a "bum" every year. My dad's old baggy clothes, candle black from the foil-covered pumpkin lid all over my face.

Today's trick-or-treaters are tomorrow's teenagers. So before you inspire a generation to return in a few years to egg your house, avenging the injustice of receiving horrible candy in their younger days, take some care when deciding what to hand out on Halloween. Halloween candy is a peculiar item, as it seems like it defies the laws of time. Halloween candy trends are the same as they were 20 years ago. In fact, it might be inappropriate to even use the word trend in this situation, as trends are usually associated with new ideas or likes.

Can you imagine having to live once again in a Baltimore where you can't go and see a two-headed skull any old time you want? Or a Baltimore where you are denied a peek at a bunch of petrified, shrunken heads? Or a Baltimore where it is no longer your God-given right to gawk at an ice mummy, a Feegee mermaid, or a Peruvian giantess? Oh lamentation, dear Baltimore! That Baltimore is now your Baltimore. The American Dime Museum is no more. Catching friends, admirers and even its own board members by surprise, the museum, repository of the bizarre and the grotesque, closed its creaky doors on Maryland Avenue Friday - Halloween night - after four years in existence.

With Halloween nearly here, I wonder if I could take a moment to address my fellow adults out there and to ask, as respectfully as possible: Could we please give Halloween back to the kids? Let's face it: Sometime in the last 10 years or so, Halloween was co-opted by adults. Apparently, adults saw kids having so much fun dressing up in costumes and extorting candy from homeowners and running around in the dark that they thought: Why can't we get in on that? So naturally they did - in a big way, too. According to a recent study quoted by Hallmark, the greeting card giant, 73 percent of adults plan to participate in Halloween festivities this year.

Leave it to Baltimore to accent Halloween with its own version of local dress.Buried in the city's inventory of curious (if today rarely practiced) Oct. 31 tricks was the art of "flouring" an enemy -- or friend, for that matter.You filled a stocking with flour, surprised your quarry and banged the garment against them. The impact of the sock did no harm but covered the victim in a powdery mess.Baltimore established a partial calendar of nocturnal deeds geared to infuriate a victim. This progression moved through the closing days of October and ended on Halloween night.

Halloween is the eve of the ancient Celtic festival Samhain, and the time when the Mexican people welcome the dead into their homes or visit cemeteries for jolly fiestas. In the United States, it is the only day on our calendar with reference to the supernatural not condoned by our established religions.For some reason some people don't like it.Halloween emerged as a pagan holiday in the forests of northern Europe, like Christmas. But unlike Christmas, it has never been convincingly sanctified.
