Authorities say skeletal human remains have been found on the grounds of a bed and breakfast in downtown Snow Hill. The remains were found after several hours of a search connected with a larger investigation. The remains are believed to be a woman's, and the person is being referred to as "Jane Doe." The remains were sent to the state Medical Examiner's office in Baltimore for identification. Worcester County State's Attorney Joel Todd says it would be inappropriate to immediately provide more details of the investigation.

Jason Curtis, a longtime friend and the president of the Mount Vernon-Belvedere Association, was by Peterson's bedside at Johns Hopkins Hospital when he died, around 12:15 a.m.  Police confirmed the death, but said they could not describe a cause because his autopsy is not complete.

When it opened in 1984 after a million-dollar renovation, the building at Cathedral and Biddle streets was hailed as Baltimore's first urban inn -- the beginning of a wave of small, upscale hotels that would provide an alternative to larger, convention-oriented operations downtown.More than a decade later, the inn's original developers have packed their bags and checked out. But the building is doing better than ever under new owners who are remodeling it from bottom to top.Paul Bragaw and Collin Clarke, co-owners of the four-star Mr. Mole Bed and Breakfast in Bolton Hill, expanded this spring by buying the inn at 58 W. Biddle St. -- the former Society Hill Hotel.

The situation in Ruxton is full of complexities ("Discrimination in Ruxton," April 25). If representatives of Sheppard Pratt Health System are to be believed, Ruxton residents are a bunch of elitist snobs with no moral standing. In reality, the personal issues surrounding this are just the beginning. Put aside the obvious name-calling and look at the more important legal issues. The heart of this issue lies around the misguided actions of Sheppard Pratt. Without question, Sheppard Pratt is a first-rate institution with exceptional staff and services.

Baltimore County is home to thousands of acres of rolling hills, dozens of historic mansions, hundreds of miles of scenic waterfront - and one bed-and-breakfast. Though the number of such establishments nationwide has increased 15-fold in the past 20 years, and the industry is strong in Annapolis and on parts of the Eastern Shore, bed-and-breakfasts have failed to take hold in Baltimore County. No one is sure why, but tourism officials, the operators of the sole inn and the Planning Department are working to loosen zoning restrictions that might be a factor.

In October 1998, David and Susan Balderson moved one mile across Route 29 in Ellicott City, from the east side to the west, because they wanted to own the imposing Colonial home whose 34 windows always boasted a lighted electric candle. Wayside Inn, circa 1780, was up for sale and the couple felt lucky to acquire the house and property for $400,000. In one year's time, they would completely renovate, and David Balderson would take up where the prior owner left off - running the 6,000-square-foot home as a bed and breakfast.

More than four-years ago, Philip Tagliaferri and his wife, Nancy Wallis, were traveling through rural Baltimore County when they noticed a for-sale sign in front of a large white house on Old York Road in Monkton. Tagliaferri told his wife: "That's a bed-and-breakfast." She agreed. A few months later, the two were the owners of the Victorian home, built in 1902. Turning the home into a bed-and-breakfast, however, wasn't easy. After spending four years and $3.5 million restoring the exterior, renovating parts of the interior, upgrading the heating and electrical systems, adding a sprinkler system, landscaping, and redecorating the house, Tagliaferri said they have started taking reservations.

So she recently joined members of a widows and divorcees support group at a murder mystery show at the Baker House, a bed and breakfast in Aberdeen.

Not far from the spot where Old York and Manor roads meet among the North County's rolling hills, the shell of a grand old mansion sits in transition. The Victorian-style structure is surrounded by construction equipment. Its once-gracious porch is pillar- and paint-less. A sign warning away trespassers sits in the driveway. But the banner posted at the base of the sweeping lawn sends a hospitable message. It proclaims the future opening of Slade's Inn, an eight-room bed-and-breakfast expected to make its home in the turreted mansion next year.
