For years, the small treasures -- bits of colored glass held together by strips of lead -- sat unattended, propped against the wall of a Carroll County hayloft, above George F. Harne Sr.'s horses and cattle. Little by little, the stained-glass windows surrendered their gleam to an ugly crust of dirt and dust.Still, Harne -- who had rescued the windows from an abandoned church -- waited patiently for the day when sunlight would touch them again."We had to save the windows," said Harne. "I could not let them get away from us."

Blas A. Alfaro, a retired Howard County educator who had owned several hair salons and a beauty academy, died Sunday of prostate cancer at his Mount Airy home. He was 75. Mr. Alfaro was born and raised in the Bronx, N.Y., where he graduated from high school. He served in the Marine Corps and Army from 1946 to 1952, and later wrote a privately published memoir, Stories of GIs in Japan, chronicling his experiences serving with the Army's occupation forces in Japan. Mr. Alfaro wrote that memories of those years would surface occasionally "without rhyme or reason" and then "you are transported to the land you left behind through music, odors or food."
