In a narrow hallway on a high shelf, a sign sits next to an intricate wreath of looped vines, feathers and dried flowers. “Flowers feed the soul,” it says.  That hallway divides the front and back rooms of Natural Gatherings, Rick and Jane Barger's shop on Main Street in Bel Air. For the Bargers, that message rings true.

A The entire end wall needs to be turned into a focal point. But that can't be achieved by the addition of any single object, unless it's truly colossal. A symmetrical composition also won't solve your problem, since it too would tend to elongate the hallway.In this photograph a situation similar to your own was addressed by introducing an altar-type console table in a color contrasting with that of the wall. Note that the objects placed on and under the table are not arranged in a symmetrical fashion.

Artist and muralist Pat O'Brien confronts a bare room as she would an engineering project. She takes measurements, makes scale drawings, and plans precisely the colors, fabrics and furnishings she will employ. It all makes perfect sense for the former electrical engineer who used to design systems for military aircraft when she worked at AAI Corp. in Cockeysville. O'Brien's artistic talent will be on display at the Baltimore Symphony Associates decorators' show house, which opens Sunday, April 29. Hers will be the first interior space visitors encounter as they tour the Eck House in Baltimore County's Cromwell Valley Park.

Contrary to earlier reports, some of the 120 students with special needs attending Maiden Choice School in Arbutus might have been exposed to elevated levels of asbestos last week, Baltimore County school officials said yesterday. School officials said this week that the students, some of whom can't walk or talk, weren't exposed to the material because it wasn't released until a work crew knocked a hole in a hallway wall Thursday night. Students did not go to school Friday. But the crew made the hole Wednesday night, which means students attending school Thursday might have been exposed to asbestos at levels above federal standards, said Douglas J. Neilson, a school system spokesman.

We have seen the future, and it is built in.That's right -- built-ins. Storage for every conceivable object from clothes to televisions and VCRs, from linens to linguine.Storage can be a serious problem in old houses, many of which were built without any closets at all. If they have nooks and crannies -- space at the end of a hallway or under the stairs -- there may be places to tuck storage units away.But in houses where the original rooms are square or rectangular, with multiple doors and windows, finding room for storage can be a real problem.

We have a narrow and dark hallway. Can you tell us how to make it seem wider and brighter? We'd also like to add decorative interest so that guests will view the hall as something more than just a passageway between rooms.Color and lighting are obvious elements that make a setting look brighter and less confining. And to give your hallway a more interesting appearance, you should add an attractive pattern or two while also introducing a focal point.A pier mirror or a short cabinet with a tall mirror are two options-- assuming that the ceiling is more than 8 feet tall and that the hall isn't especially long.

Time seemed to stop when Mayor Sheila Dixon's trial began three weeks ago - although maybe that was just because the clock in the courtroom was broken, stuck at 9:47. The next day, it was still stuck, but at a different time, 9:19. Eventually the clock was replaced by a working one, albeit one that runs a little fast and makes you think it's later than it is. But that could just be how it seems when you're waiting for some indeterminate amount of time for an equally unknowable thing: When Dixon's jury will render its verdict.

Destinee Alicia Parker died of swine flu at the University of Maryland Medical Center on Tuesday, and the next day, the 14-year-old's father went back to the hospital. James Parker wasn't there to tie up loose ends, and he wasn't there to identify his daughter's body, mourners at the girl's funeral learned Saturday. "Mr. Parker went to the hospital [Wednesday] and then he went to the hospital on Thursday because there were more sick babies in the hospital, and until they all get better, the fight is not over," said Camille Bell, principal of Montebello Elementary/Middle School.

Janice Hayes-Williams finally found out what happened to all those trophies and awards her classmates won at Annapolis High School. In two storage rooms, she discovered dozens of trophies, haphazardly piled on shelves, sideways on the floor and gathering dust in cardboard boxes. Hayes-Williams picked up the 1999 Capital City Classic Basketball trophy from the floor and blew off the cobwebs. From a shelf, the local historian pulled down a women's basketball trophy from 2000. "Oh, we're going to have a ball," Hayes-Williams said.

A young drug trafficker believed to have been shot to death this week by Baltimore police officers in a gunbattle at a high-rise housing project instead may have been killed by gunfire from someone who has yet to be identified by police.Autopsy findings suggest that two of three bullets that struck 25-year-old Wayne D. Watts -- including one slug that fatally pierced the heart -- may have been fired by a .22-caliber revolver recovered by detectives at the scene, sources close to the investigation say.A third wound to the groin was caused by 9mm jacketed ammunition, used by plainclothes officers who fired 15 rounds into a crowded fifth-floor hallway at 1058 Argyle Ave. after Watts shot at them with a .357-caliber Magnum handgun.

Q: I'm looking for an affordable, tall piece of furniture that can be placed at the end of a long, narrow hallway. I have been told that such an addition will make the hall appear shorter, which would definitely be desirable in this situation. Do you have some thoughts on what sort of piece might be interesting? The ceiling height, by the way, is just about average: 8 feet, 6 inches.A: The height of the piece is not the key factor in the effect you're trying to achieve. Decorative interest, on the other hand, is absolutely essential if the hallway is to seem shorter.

Six politicians and some 150 parents met last night at Bushy Park Elementary School over an increasingly common dilemma for suburban counties - too many children, not enough classrooms and dwindling financial resources to deal with the resulting crowding. The 27-year old school in Glenwood - with 269 more children than it was designed for - needs up to 13 more rooms for all-day kindergarten and to get youngsters out of closets, hallways and six portables, school officials say. The parents want relief, but the school's cafeteria and gym are too small for such an expansion, the septic system can't handle it and the county can't afford all the new school buildings needed countywide without a new source of revenue, according to County Executive James N. Robey.
