Paul Hines, who was known as the "Buffalo Man" because of a bison herd he kept on his Churchville farm, died of cancer Oct. 13 at his residence. He was 77. Born in Omaha, Neb., and raised in Alliance, he served in the Army during the Korean War and retired after 20 years as a Signal Corps photo officer and instructor. He moved to Maryland in 1968 and worked part-time as a postal carrier in Bel Air and a clerk in Churchville. Family members said Mr. Hines raised bison for 25 years on the 60-acre Cedarvale Farm, which had been in his wife's family since the mid-1860s.

Dustin Lynch was collecting donations for the local fire department on a drill field about 300 yards from Norris Hall at Virginia Tech early Monday, unaware of the tragedy occurring inside the engineering building. The typical weekday morning scene of students scurrying to and from classes changed instantly, said Lynch, a sophomore from Harford County. It was the start of the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history, as Seung-Hui Cho, a 23-year-old student, killed 32 people before turning a gun on himself.

It looks like an updated scene from the movie American Graffiti. Instead of Studebakers, SUVs are crowded onto a field. The movie soundtrack is heard on simultaneous AM and FM broadcasts, rather than speakers hanging from car windows. And the stars of the double feature are Will Smith and Jackie Chan, not Elvis Presley and John Wayne. But much about the Bel Air Drive-In in Churchville has remained the same since it opened 51 years ago. It's a place where, on a given summer evening, people in more than 400 vehicles can watch a movie on a huge outdoor screen.

On a balmy fall day, too beautiful for grief, Maryland buried its second sailor from the USS Cole. Engineman Fireman Joshua L. Parlett of Churchville - one of 17 crew members killed in the terrorist attack Oct. 12 on the Navy destroyer in Yemen - was laid to rest yesterday in a cemetery near his home. With a 21-gun salute and a lone bugler playing "Taps," sailors, friends and family bid a tearful farewell to the 19-year-old who died for his country. A police motorcade led the funeral procession through Harford County's winding country roads to the burial site at Harford Memorial Gardens in Churchville.
