On a sunny summer afternoon, the Western Run lazes around a U-shaped bend behind Ashland Presbyterian Church, ripples from dancing water bugs making the only disturbance in its slow slide to the Loch Raven Reservoir. But in a heavy rain, that peaceful bend in the stream became an erosion nightmare. When runoff from the church met the surging waters of the stream, they combined to chew away at the steep slope. Church officials worried they were one bad storm away from seeing their parking lot crumble into the embankment.

Behold the town a dead bard's plots sustain,Where stage and stores his words do decorate,Where green hills rise and sweet creek swiftly runs,And far-flung strangers do yearly subscribe,To gaze on spawn of two clans strangely wed,And wonder: How hath Hamlet fathered hamlet?The town is Ashland, perched on the edge of the Rogue River Valley opposite a gorgeous verdant hillside, roughly midway between San Francisco and Portland. On lazy afternoons, stray deer wander down its residential streets, while on the main drag, out-of-towners congregate in wistful pairs to peer at the window offerings of real-estate offices.

CHICAGO -- There was the smell, of course. It was the aroma of rotting meat, of burning hides, of manure-filled pens. Novelist Upton Sinclair called it "an elemental odor, raw and crude; it was rich, almost rancid, sensual, and strong."It was one of the hallmarks of the Chicago stockyards. And there was the sound."It suggested endless activity," Sinclair wrote, "the rumblings of a world in motion. It was the distant lowing of ten thousand cattle, the distant grunting of ten thousand swine."

The 55 souls gathered at Faith Tabernacle Apostolic Church kept worshiping Sunday evening when a flash of light danced across the stained-glass windows. Just a police car responding to a call, they figured, a common enough sight in this part of East Baltimore. Probably nothing too serious. But a parishioner standing on the sidewalk knew something was very wrong. On the far side of Ashland Avenue, a crowd rushed from an alley screaming, "You shot? You shot?" The panic was understandable.

The somber atmosphere of Old St. Paul's Episcopal Church could not dampen Ashland Croxton Jr.'s enthusiasm as he described his nephew Darryl Croxton, who died a month ago. The soft-spoken man of 78 spoke of his nephew's ability to touch an audience through his acting. "If he was sitting here right now in that pulpit and reading the Creation story," Ashland Croxton Jr. said, laughing, "I guarantee you he'd have you in tears." Three weeks ago, Darryl Winslow Croxton, a local actor and poet, was found dead in his Mount Vernon apartment, apparently of heart disease.
