Voters in the rural crossroads of Galena apparently won't take "no" for an answer, at least not when it comes to picking their mayor. Harry J. Pisapia made it known months ago that after a decade as the top elected official in the northern Kent County town, population 428, he wouldn't seek another four-year term. Pisapia, 57, an insurance agent, told anyone who'd listen that he needed a break from the $100-a- month elected job, which occupies countless hours. He is vice president of the Galena Volunteer Fire Company and spends a lot of time umpiring local baseball games.

GALENA -- If there's a hot topic in this rural Kent County crossroads near the Sassafras River, you can bet Horace and Josie Otwell will hear all about it. Otwell's Market, a full-service, immaculate little grocery where Horace has worked for 41 years, is the kind of place where everybody knows your family and you know theirs. Longtime customers can run a tab that's tallied by pencil, not computer, and few seem reluctant to banter about the day's events or the latest gossip as Josie works the cash register.

Though we have a commodious guest room in our old farmhouse in Galena, my mother-in-law declined to stay with us when she came for Thanksgiving last year. It wasn't a rift in family relations. It was the commotion. We have dogs and kids, something Jane finds nice in the abstract, but a little overwhelming at the end of a long day. So, when she accepted our invitation for a huge family-and-friends turkey day feast, it was conditional:"I'd love to come if you can make me a reservation at the hotel."

GALENA - You'd be hard-pressed to find a new pair of shoes, an auto mechanic or a screwdriver in this blink-and-miss-it farming community. But if you want a quaint corner cabinet, some porcelain figurines or a papier-mache rooster, you've come to the right place. This Upper Eastern Shore crossroads town of 650 residents has seven antiques shops, and the proprietors say business is booming. Part of the surge in shoppers comes from a weekly furniture auction in nearby Crumpton, where dealers jockey for the best deals amid fields of dressers, mirrors and lawn ornaments.
