Whether or not you have children, you will be expected to hand out treats on Halloween. Tell us if you've experimented with giving out more healthful options. Hosting or attending a party where un-sugary snacks are served does not count. It's all about what's in your bowl when costumed kids come knocking on your door. And does anybody really give just one of those "fun size" treats per child? Tell us about your experience and what you plan to give out this Halloween in an e-mail to: dmarder@phillynews.com .

The play is not the most intriguing or intricate in the Eagles' thick, green offensive notebook, but it has worked all three times: Keith Byars takes a pitchout from Randall Cunningham and lofts a touchdown pass over a baffled defense. Why does this trick play keep working? Does the defense think Byars will run the ball? Is it some kind of misdirection play? Is it the gloves? Byars, the nominal running back who probably would have made the Pro Bowl if there were a most-versatile category, has not run much this season - only 29 times in 14 games.

"You can't ask a one-night stand to come back tomorrow night," gripes Gabriel (Christian Campbell), who has just met a tight-T-shirted go-go boy on the subway and taken him back to his place for a couple of hours of uncomplicated sex. Except it is complicated: Gabriel's actively hetero roommate (Brad Beyer) is naked with his girlfriend, just in from France. There's no room for another tryst in the tiny Greenwich Village apartment. That's just one of many frustrations that occur during the course of a New York night in Trick, director Jim Fall's sweetly comic romance, which opens the fifth Philadelphia International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival tonight at the Prince Music Theater on Chestnut Street.

When Jenkintown police showed up at a Halloween party in the 700 block of West Avenue early Sunday morning in response to reports of underage drinking, partygoers complimented the two officers on the authenticity of their costumes. But the teenagers quickly realized they were not costumes when police cited all of them on charges of underage consumption of alcohol. Pennsylvania's legal drinking age is 21. Police heard a call at about 1 a.m. for an ambulance because someone had overdosed on alcohol and responded to the address, also in Jenkintown, that requested the ambulance.

Diverting Trick or Treat lives up to its name by being a movie that both metalheads and the membership of the Parents Music Resource Center can thrash to. No, it's not a splatter movie in the harrowing tradition of Halloween. As directed by Charles Martin Smith (the American Graffiti nerd turned environmentalist in Never Cry Wolf), Trick or Treat is a teen-music thriller under the influence of Stephen King. At its best, this cautionary tale of a heavy-metal fan haunted by his satanic idol recalls Carrie and Christine.

"You can't ask a one-night stand to come back tomorrow night," gripes Gabriel (Christian Campbell), who has just met a handsome go-go boy on the subway and has taken him back to his place for a couple of hours of uncomplicated sex. Except it is complicated: Gabriel's actively hetero roommate (Brad Beyer) is clothesless with his just-returned-from-France girlfriend, the two of them in the throes of reunification, plop in the middle of the tiny Greenwich Village apartment. That's just one of many frustrations that arise over the course of a New York night in Trick, director Jim Fall's sweetly comic romance, which opened the recent Philadelphia International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival and begins its regular theatrical run today.

The Oakland Athletics admitted they were sleeping Saturday when Orioles first baseman Rafael Palmeiro used the hidden-ball trick to tag out Rickey Henderson and end the third inning. "I didn't know where he got the ball from," Henderson said. "It's a play you see every blue moon. It happens at second base a lot. You just tip the hat. " The play began innocently enough. With runners on first and second, Rafael Bournigal flied to center for the second out of the inning. Ryan Christenson, who was on second, tagged up and took third.

IF WE'VE learned one thing about Ron Hextall in his 13-month reign as Flyers general manager, it's that he craves outside-the-box thinking. Last month, he hired Dave Hakstol, plucking him from North Dakota as the first college coach to make the jump directly to an NHL bench since 1982. Last June, Hextall pulled the trigger on drafting defenseman Travis Sanheim at No. 17 overall, a player who ranked 167th in the January midterm standing by the NHL's Central Scouting service. Sanheim, now 19, is considered the Flyers' best overall prospect.

THOUGH PIXAR is the closest thing in the movie business to a can't-miss studio, there has been grumbling recently that the company's been playing it safe. Pixar spent the first decade of the new century releasing completely original titles, seven in all, then started living off the dividends of sequels - "Toy Story 3," "Cars 2," "Monsters University. " Nit-pickers wondered: Had the company lost its nerve? If so, they've gone to the right fellow to get it back - Pete Docter, the animator who helmed "Up," the movie that concluded and perhaps capped its great 2000-09 run. No one can say Docter is playing it safe with "Inside Out," a boldly imagined animated feature that goes inside the brain of a sad, struggling girl, and breaks her emotions down into individual characters - Joy, Anger, Fear, Disgust, Sadness - all trying to manage the girl's mood.

CINCINNATI - A young family walked out of the elevator and onto the field level at Great American Ball Park late last night, about a half-hour after the game. A boy held a baseball in his hand. "Which one is that?" a stadium security guard asked in the hallway that leads to the Reds' home clubhouse. "The third one!" the boy said triumphantly, raising the souvenir with one hand and high-fiving the guard with the other. He was off to deliver the ball to the hero of the night.

What matters to you most as a consumer? What impresses you about a business, or makes you likely to recommend it to friends? What gets your goat, or leaves you so frustrated that you take time to complain? I want to know, because that's my job - as it has been for most of the last 14 years, ever since my first Consumer Watch column appeared here in November 2001. With today's redesign of Sunday Business comes a new chance to invite you to speak up. Like it or not, consumers are like canaries in a coal mine.

For more than a year, Kevin Ricker enjoyed parking next to his $2,000-a-month apartment at the Piazza at Schmidts. He earned that right when he signed a lease to live at ground zero of the Northern Liberties redevelopment boom. On Thursday, however, he awoke to find that convenience had vanished - the financial analyst and 21 other Piazza residents could not find their cars. The culprit was not a thief, but an invisible foe who had issued an overnight towing order for reasons that remained shadowy as the day wore on. Was this a beef over a property dispute?

Evan Vare was the only scorer for Central Bucks East on Wednesday afternoon, but he was the only one the Patriots needed. Vare recorded a hat trick against visiting Souderton in Suburban One Continental boys' soccer, sending Central Bucks East to a 3-1 victory. The win gave the Patriots their ninth conference championship in the last 10 years.

For Jean Kintisch of Wayne, Halloween can be a scary time of year - and not in an exciting, haunted-house kind of way. That's because her youngest daughter has nut allergies that make trick-or-treating a potentially life-threatening activity. This year, though, Kintisch may feel a little less frightened, thanks to a campaign called the Teal Pumpkin Project that invites people to display a teal-painted pumpkin or a printable flier to notify trick-or-treaters that nonfood treats such as stickers or crayons are available.

* THE AFFAIR. 10 p.m. Sunday, Showtime. * CRISTELA. 8:30 tonight, 6ABC. * LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER: THE NANCE, STARRING NATHAN LANE. 9 tonight, WHYY12.   YOU KNOW those "misty, watercolor memories" Barbra Streisand sang about in "The Way We Were"? You can't trust them. Because watercolors run. That's one takeaway from Showtime's new drama, "The Affair," which premieres Sunday. Dominic West ("The Wire") and Ruth Wilson ("Luther") star as the principals in an extramarital relationship set in the Hamptons, where West's character, a schoolteacher named Noah, is summering with his wife, Helen (Maura Tierney)

THE FLYERS are in an awkward "hat stage. " You know the feeling - if you're lucky enough to still have hair. That's when your hair is just long enough that it's unkempt, but not long enough that you're ready to shell out for that next trip to the barber. Or, in the Flyers' case this season, you're a team probably good enough to make the Stanley Cup playoffs, but not good enough to make a serious run at a Stanley Cup. Playing in the mediocre (that's putting it nicely) Eastern Conference only muddles the picture - or increases the frustration, depending on how you look at it.   If the Flyers had only brought in Ron Hextall a year or two sooner, they might be the team penciled into the Stanley Cup finals.
