Mr. Chapin was somewhat unconventional for the times, when he relocated his firm away from the Redwood Street financial district.

Elisha Ray Nance died Sunday in Bedford, Va., a spokesman for Tharp Funeral Home and Crematory said Monday.

Ultimate Cloud Nine at Bedford Springs What's the deal?: For $999, receive three-nights' accommodations plus a $999 spa credit at Bedford Springs Resort in Bedford, Pa., beginning Nov. 1. The historic property reopened last summer after a multimillion-dollar renovation and has a 30,000-square-foot spa. What's the savings?: Bedford also has a special anniversary rate of $125 per night available during this period, so a savvy traveler could get three nights for around $500. But there would be no facials, pedicures or massages.

THE PROBLEM A Northeast Baltimore bus shelter that was damaged in an accident has not been replaced. THE BACKSTORY Edna Bedford lives near Cedonia and Radecke avenues in Baltimore and regularly uses the No. 5 bus that stops there for, in her words, "everything." Whether she's heading to church, the supermarket, or to get her medicine, Bedford takes the bus. That's why she was so distressed after hearing secondhand that a car had run up on the sidewalk several weeks ago and struck the bus shelter that protected her and other passengers from the elements.
