Go here: Walking the tree-lined streets of historic Havre de Grace is like stepping back in time. Leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind, skip the mad rush of suburban shopping malls and spend an enjoyable weekend in this quaint town, tucked into the easternmost corner of Harford County. Located at the confluence of the Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay, Havre de Grace played a prominent role during the Revolutionary War. During the First Congress in 1789, Havre de Grace missed by only one vote being named the capital of the fledgling United States.

Stores are stocked with costumes and giant bags of candy in preparation for the droves of children who will go trick-or-treating at the end of the month. But hand in hand with the fun side of Halloween is the spooky side, and Harford County is not exempt from local ghost stories. Lisa Ryan opened Havre de Haunts Tours & Paranormal Research last year to investigate and share those stories. Through Havre de Haunts, Ryan offers a 1½-hour guided walking tour of Havre de Grace that includes a history of the town as well as local ghost stories, all of which are true, Ryan claims.

Sandy rained on Havre de Grace's annual Halloween parade, but even a superstorm could not curtail trick-or-treating in the battered waterfront town.

But city officials gave the door-to-door quest for candy on Wednesday the go-ahead. "We are 95 percent back to normal," said Mayor Wayne H. Dougherty. "There is still the kid who loves Halloween in me, and I wanted the kids to enjoy the night.

The last time the Havre de Grace field hockey team won a game, some of the players on this year's roster were toddlers. By beating winless Aberdeen 1-0 on Wednesday, the Warriors ended a losing streak that stretches back at least to 2002, and perhaps further. "That's all we wanted," said Chelsea Loveland, the team's second-year coach. "We just wanted the one.

Regrettably, it appears that the rest of America has caught up with Baltimore's widespread substance abuse problem.
