Growing up in Beechfield during the 1930s, James K. Lightner had an interest in photography and history. That interest led the 11-year-old Lightner and his parents to join the crowds that invaded Gettysburg during the first few days of July 1938. They went to honor the 2,000 Union and Confederate veterans — their average age was 94 — who traveled in 26 Pullman cars from nearly every state in the Union (only Rhode Island went unrepresented) to stand on hallowed ground one more time to mark the 75th anniversary of the historic battle.

A woman who police said had left her home in Cockeysville to visit a store on Thanksgiving Eve and was found dead in her burning car the next morning has been identified as 51-year-old Carolyn Davidson Von-Schnell. A cause of death has not been determined, but Baltimore County police have said the death appears accidental. Police said that her Toyota Camry had apparently gone off the road, over a hill and hit several trees in the 1300 block of Phoenix Road. Van-Schnell was found by police, who spotted the car from a helicopter, inside the burning vehicle after relatives called to report her missing from her house in the same block.

Navy Cmdr. Reid Wiseman spent 21/2 years preparing to travel 220 miles above Earth's surface, live six months in cramped quarters and walk in space. That doesn't mean he isn't a little scared. "There are moments when the adrenaline just crushes you," the Cockeysville native said in an interview from Star City, Russia, where he is training to launch May 28 aboard a Russian ship. "Holy smokes, I'm getting on that rocket in 21/2 weeks, and this time next month I'll be floating on the space station going 18,000 mph. It's still a little bit unbelievable.

One snip at a time, the black veils that covered 10 columns on the University of Virginia's historic Rotunda fell to the ground late Friday afternoon. They had been installed last week to honor the memory of Yeardley Love, the Cockeysville woman and lacrosse player killed in her off-campus apartment last spring. As he watched fellow students and school employees cut down the fabric, fourth-year architecture student A.J. Artemel said the coverings had represented "a re-examination of the past events," and removing them symbolized "the restoration of hope" on a campus traumatized by violence.
