Bishopville resident John Hastings describes the Worcester County town where he has lived for 25 years as the hamlet he never wants to leave. Hastings likes it that his home sits on 5 acres along the rural Hammond Road - a road named after his neighbor's early farming family. He also is excited to talk about the new, 1,000-acre Lighthouse Sound golf course development, lined by million-dollar homes, on the southern tip of the Bishopville area closest to Route 90 as it heads into Ocean City.

BISHOPVILLE -- John Rosinski has difficulty breathing. His hands are clammy. And he's just carrying clubs, not swinging them. Rosinski caddies in the St. Joseph Pressure Challenge, a reality show that will air on CBS tomorrow and next Saturday. Over three days last month at the Links at Lighthouse Sound, across Assawoman Bay from Ocean City, the network had David Feherty, Bill Macatee and what had to seem like 8 zillion cameras on hand for the 26 men and three women who took dead aim at $250,000.

Maryland State Police troopers fatally shot a man in Bishopville on Saturday evening who authorities said stole a truck, rammed it into a patrol car and led troopers on a chase through a rural stretch of Worcester County. Kelly Kennis Damron, 40, of Rising Sun died at the scene of the standoff at Route 113 and Bishopville Road, about 15 miles northwest of Ocean City. Damron was arrested on driving under the influence and assault charges June 16 and had been released on bond on those charges from Snow Hill Detention Center on Saturday afternoon, just hours before stealing a Ford pickup and fleeing from officers, police said.

On the afternoon of Jan. 11, 1995, Deborah Carven set out to un-cover the truth. For months, she'd heard rumors about the house she and her husband, Tom, owned just outside Ocean City: There was something hidden beneath it. Something that could explain all the unsettling things that had happened since they'd moved in a decade earlier. Like the television set suddenly flicking on. And the odor of pipe smoke wafting through the dining room. And the apparition her youngest son Timmy saw in his room at night.
