GLOUCESTER, Mass. -- Here at the Crow's Nest, they are missing a golden opportunity to become a tourist attraction. That doesn't seem to bother them much. A national spotlight has been on this Main Street bar ever since "The Perfect Storm," a best-selling book set in Gloucester, hit shelves in 1997. Throngs of vacationers arrive and head straight for the visitors center to ask where they can find the Crow's Nest. But the Crow's Nest never really wanted to be "found." And it hasn't done much to capitalize on this wave of interest.

For nearly 30 years, the Port Welcome supplied plenty of memories for Baltimoreans who jammed its decks for proms, class trips, office parties, bar mitzvahs, moonlights, and cruises to Betterton, Tolchester and Annapolis. While not the most attractive-looking vessel ever to ply the Chesapeake Bay, the Port Welcome enjoyed years of popularity since its 1959 christening by Maryland first lady Helen Avalynne Tawes. It was built by R.T.C. Shipbuilding Corp. in Camden, N.J., for the Maryland Port Authority, which used it for promotional activities.

Gloucester, Va. -- Standing at a podium overlooking a flag-draped coffin, the Rev. Douglas Nagel told hundreds of mourners gathered in Gloucester's First Presbyterian Church yesterday not to think that Army Spc. Eric Thomas Caldwell's life had been taken from him. To think that, he said amid soft cries coming from the crowd, would cheapen Caldwell's sacrifice. The 22-year-old soldier, who spent much of his childhood in Salisbury on Maryland's Eastern Shore, was killed in Iraq on Jan. 7 after his patrol encountered enemy small-arms fire north of Baghdad.
