CECILTON - Melvin King, the spiritual leader of 10 Amish families who moved from Pennsylvania to this rolling farmland between the Sassafras and Bohemia rivers, is still reeling from last week's fire that reduced his dairy business to a pile of smoking rubble, destroying his barn, milking cows and work horses. But by tomorrow, a week to the day since the blaze caused an estimated $360,000 in damage, a new dairy barn will stand in its place. King could only marvel yesterday as about 250 Amish men in straw hats, black wool coats and pants swarmed around the skeleton of his new barn, hammering trusses and fastening sheets of a green metal roof with stoic precision.

The Navy touched ground yesterday on the peaceful, rolling hills of an equestrian center in Howard County, where seamen from the USS Maryland nuclear submarine heavily armed with levers, hacksaws and hammers made swift work of a former dairy barn fixup.While helping to refurbish the 100-year-old barn at the Therapeutic and Recreational Riding Center in Glenwood, the 10 volunteer sailors encountered a problem never faced aboard their vessel: shoveling shin-high piles of cow manure."This is not really what I expected to do when I joined the Navy," Barron Rhodes, 29, a seven-year naval technician from Arcadia, La., said wryly.

NEW MIDWAY -- Glenn Eaves stood gazing yesterday as snow fell through a hole the size of a football field in the roof of his new dairy barn -- a building designed to withstand heavy snow.Outside, workers with front-end loaders removed debris. Others dragged the remains of more than 200 Holstein cows killed early Monday morning when the roof of the 600-foot-long barn gave way under a record 40 inches of snow."We can contend with the storms, but I've never seen anything like" this, said Mr. Eaves, 60, who runs one of the largest dairy farms in Maryland.

Driving along Interstate 70 a few weeks ago, I noticed near West Friendship the big sign announcing the opening of the Howard County Fair on Aug. 13. The sign and the white buildings of the fairgrounds brought back memories of my visit to last year's event. Until then, the last county fair I had attended was almost 30 years ago, in Jessamine County, Ky.After the big-city life of New Orleans and now Baltimore, rural, down-home things had been pretty much buried in the past. Buried, but not forgotten.

The dismantling of a 1910 dairy barn in Ellicott City has raised preservationists' concerns about the county's ability to protect historic buildings. Their specific worry is not the demolished wooden barn, but the fate of two other 19th-century stone buildings in the same cluster of Mount Hebron farm structures, said Mary Catherine Cochran, president of Preservation Howard County. One is a large barn thought once to have served as slave quarters, and the second is a smaller Civil War-era tenant house on the 8-acre property.
