Near the end of the month Escape will feature the best Halloween haunts in the Santa Clarita Valley. Please submit your suggestions to email@example.com. Include the address of the haunt, a description of what will be seen there and the name and contact information for the person(s) in charge. If you can include photos of previous haunts at this location, even better. Escape will publish the most interesting of these. We are looking for true attractions and not just someone's well-decorated home.

"We promise you an evening you won't forget!"

"Good Hair" is a documentary about black women and their hair. Chris Rock, the host and narrator, is a likable man, quick, truly curious, with the gift of encouraging people to speak openly about a subject they usually keep private. He conveys a lot of information, but also some unfortunate opinions and misleading facts. That doesn't mean the movie isn't warm, funny and entertaining.
"Couples Retreat" tells the story of four troubled couples and how they're healed by sitcom formulas. Why are they troubled? Because the screenplay says so. It contains little comedy except for free-standing one-liners, and no suspense except for the timing of the obligatory reconciliation. It doesn't even make you think you'd like to visit its island paradise.
Free family fun and finding homes for Los Angeles County shelter animals are the focus of the Ninth Annual Bow-Wows & Meows Pet Fair at Newhall's William S. Hart Park on Sunday, Oct. 11.

We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on. With the constant barrage of information available in today's 24/7 world, it's important to not get caught up in the day-to-day market volatility and news headlines. That daily hype doesn't always dovetail with what Wells Fargo Advisors top strategists are observing in the financial marketplace.
