Highland Presbyterian Church will sponsor a Grief Support Group on Thursday nights this fall to give those who are dealing with grief and loss an opportunity to share with others going through the same thing. The group is intended for those who have lost someone, perhaps recently, and are wondering how to move forward into the future, as well as for those whose loss occurred some months — or even years ago — and who still feel the loss and would welcome an opportunity to talk about it. Experts say it takes a long time to get over significant losses, but that talking with others in the same situation can often be helpful.

The first frazzled week of school is history and, I must admit, this year's opening has been remarkably smooth.No missed buses so far. My eldest has assumed the chauffeuring duties for her freshman sibling. Coordinating time in the bathroom at 6:45 a.m. has not presented a problem. Yet.Most of the classroom supplies have been bought, but there is that running tab of extras -- lab fees, workbooks, notebooks and calculators -- required to get them through the first semester.I grumbled to an old friend with children in college about the costs, but she scoffed at my whining over a piddling $30 tab and offered to swap it for hers, which seems to be rising as fast as the national debt.

A woman was found fatally shot Thursday evening in St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Ellicott City, a man was discovered dead on the grounds nearby and another woman was critically injured by gunfire — turning a quiet, family neighborhood near the historic downtown into a crime scene. Police and SWAT team members swarmed the 3600 block of Rogers Ave., just up the hill from the historic mill town's Main Street, and blocked off a section of the road after receiving a call about 5:20 p.m. from a custodian at the church, who said he'd found two women in a church office suffering from gunshot wounds.

The Mount Vernon house spent decades as one of several 19th-century millionaires' mansions. But in the last 25 years, the Patrick Allison House has found another mission. Once a church office, it is now a sanctuary for the homeless where a neighboring congregation once served breakfasts. Its role changed to fit a need, and its rooms are now a year-round residence. The spacious bedrooms house homeless men who have given up drugs and alcohol and are making their way into the workforce, often after release from prison or jail.

WASHINGTON - The highest ranking woman in the FBI has been hired to police the Catholic Church as it enacts policies aimed at preventing a repeat of the sexual abuse scandal this year that removed hundreds of priests and undermined parishioners' trust. Kathleen McChesney, 51, who has led the FBI's efforts to improve relations between federal and local law enforcement, was named director of the U.S. bishops' Office for Child and Youth Protection yesterday. The creation of the office was a key part of the sexual abuse policy adopted by the bishops in June and revised last week by a joint committee of bishops and Vatican officials.

JERUSALEM - Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon declared an end to the first phase of his army's war on Palestinian terror yesterday and withdrew most of his troops from West Bank cities they had occupied for the past three weeks. But soldiers remained poised outside Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's compound in Ramallah and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, where suspected militants are holed up. Sharon has vowed to continue the sieges until the wanted men surrender. The army pullback meant tens of thousands of Palestinians could leave their homes and begin to rebuild their lives and cities.
