DUNNIGAN, Calif. -- It might be a little hard for the everyday traveler to find Pantyhose Junction, hidden away as it is behind the oleanders beside Interstate 5.It's attractive enough, but the signs don't loom huge the way they do at most freeway attractions these days.Alvin Mazzanti, owner of the improbably named eatery, doesn't mind, however. If there are a few empty automobile parking spaces in the lot, that's fine. The truck lot usually is full and there are plenty of customers who look like truckers perched in booths and along the counter with their battered thermoses at their sides.

They report mysterious door slammings and footsteps, lights that turn on and off without explanation and objects that seem to levitate and fly as if thrown by some unseen force. With no one close enough to touch her, one woman felt something ruffle her hair. Another says she spotted a figure floating outside a window -- a third-floor window. And one man swears he felt something, grainy and cold, pass through him in a hallway. To the staffers at Junction Inc., a substance abuse prevention and outpatient treatment center in an old stone building in Westminster that used to be a jail, the explanation is simple: The ghost they know by the nickname Ruben is up to his old tricks again.

JERUSALEM - They have worked with Weight Watchers and the New York Yankees. Now the experts at Rubenstein Associates, a public relations firm, are taking on a new client: the state of Israel, which hopes to spruce up its image in the deadly conflict with the Palestinians. The New York-based agency, hired this year, already has come up with several suggestions it believes would help Israel sanitize the battlefield. First, reduce the number of security guards hovering around Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

City police were investigating the death of a man found Wednesday afternoon in the back seat of a van parked in the Mount Clare Junction shopping center in Southwest Baltimore. Detectives said he did not appear to be the victim of foul play. The man's feet appeared to be propped up in a back window, and blood appeared to be dripping from above the left rear tire of the large red van, which had handicapped-parking plates and was in a handicap space in front of the Family Dollar store. Steven Bruns, 45, said he was walking through the parking lot when he noticed the blood and looked inside, where he saw an older man who appeared to be tied up. A police spokesman said the man appeared to be in his 50s or 60s but did not immediately have additional information.

Baltimore's Mount Royal train station hasn't served a passenger since 1961, when the B and O Railroad ceased using it as a commuter terminal. But for a brief period this summer, the building's interior looked much the way it did before rail service stopped, with high ceilings above the former baggage area, large windows on the east side and a brick fireplace in the middle of the old waiting room. Now the interior has been partially covered up again as the building's owner, the Maryland Institute College of Art, prepares to reopen it this month as a place to make sculpture and other three-dimensional forms of art. But the architects and builders have left plenty of clues about the building's railroading heritage, from an outside wall that's now part of the main inside corridor to a stone medallion that will be exposed on a gallery floor.

The small flotilla of kayaks and canoes glided easily into the wide, shallow riffles, momentarily disturbing the solitude of a bass fisherman standing waist-deep in the Monocacy River. Traffic noise from above on Devilbiss Bridge Road quickly faded, muffled by full-summer leaves and rocky outcrops, and replaced by the small splashes of paddles and large carp, or the drumming of a woodpecker. Pairs of Canada geese and mallards seemed to take wing around almost every bend. It was part of the second Monocacy River Paddle, a weeklong celebration by a Frederick-based conservation group that wraps up today and is intended to raise interest in one of the state's scenic rivers.
