"My husband makes me feel like everything is my fault," says Janice, 30, the mother of a 5-year-old. "I can't hold my own in an argument with him. He misinterprets everything I say."When Janice first met Henry he seemed to be the most caring and charming man in the world. But these days Henry reacts with hostility to everything she says, and he's a master of the backhanded compliment. "Last week, I had my hair cut in a stylish new way. Henry said, 'Why'd you cut your hair? It looked so much better the other way.' Of course he never told me I looked good in the old style.

Dreams run their course, too, especially when they involve such long working hours. So the former Maryland couple who made the national media rounds nine years ago when they won a Maine inn through a contest have decided to call it quits. They're giving away the 11-room Center Lovell Inn and restaurant as they got it -- in an essay competition. After more than 20 years in the restaurant business, Janice Cox says she and her husband, Richard, need a break. "It's not so much the inn, it's being in the restaurant business so long," says Janice, former manager of the now-defunct Busch's Chesapeake Inn, a 300-seat restaurant near Annapolis.

Sometimes, the drone of a familiar airplane awakens Janice Beam.It's a sound her mind can't erase."It's different than jets," Janice said, as she sat in the livingroom of her new Ferndale home. "I know nothing about jets, but I know that sound."When it takes off, sometimes it sounds like it's going to hit the house. It brings back the sound of ambulances. It justjars something in your body."The sound belongs to Centre Airlines' twin-engine Beechcraft cargo plane. On July 19, 1989, an aircraft similar to that one slammed into the basement of the Beams' one-storybrick rancher after lifting off from Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

From morning to bedtime for six years, Margaret helped Janice raise her daughter - preparing breakfast, picking her up at school, ferrying her to medical appointments and bathing her. The lesbian couple's relationship then soured, and their war over Janice's adopted child has landed in Maryland's highest court, where it has the potential to spell out the legal standing of thousands of people who help raise their partner's child. The Court of Appeals is being asked today to decide if Margaret was a parent in practice - even though by law she has no ties to the girl, named Maya - and if that could trump the legal mother's right to control who has access to her child.

Editor: Thank you for publishing the tribute to Ms. Janice Paulshock just prior to Mother's Day. Those of us who know the Paulshock family would agree that both Janice and Robert are truly inspirational. Despite their enormous challenges they faced as a family they have raised three wonderful children as evidenced in Brooke's tribute. Brittany and Bobby are equally as talented as their sister, Brooke, but more importantly each one of them are kind and hardworking young adults. Janice's and Robert's sacrifices and commitment to make sure their children did not miss much during their difficult time is a testament to their strong family network.
