For years, it gnawed at Bill Huber that he didn't know the final resting place of his father's sister, who died a toddler a century ago. When he visits for holidays, the Shelbyville, Del., resident and self-described "cemetery person" makes it a point to go to the graves of other relatives in Maryland. But he could not pay respects to Catherine Louise Huber, who died in 1904 in South Baltimore at age 3. Nobody in the family knew where she had been buried, or what she died of. "Some of us were told a story that someone came into the house on Halloween and they had on a rubber mask or some scary mask, and she jumped or ran and fell down the stairs into a coal bin," Huber, 65, said.

NEW YORK -- Curtain calls are the order of the moment this sultry afternoon in Central Park. If ever there was Much Ado About Nothing, this could be it. But, just as the goal is to rehearse all of Shakespeare's dialogue until it's perfect, so, too, this time-honored theater tradition must be gotten just right. A sea of empty green seats before them, the outdoor set's waving palm trees and columned footbridges behind, Leonato, distinguished governor of Messina, takes his bow; his daughter, nubile Hero, takes hers.

From their balcony seats, even Statler and Waldorf might like this news. Three years after selling the Jim Henson Co. and its Muppets to a German media company for $680 million, Henson's family said yesterday that it was buying it back for a fraction of that amount. The deal, valued at $89 million in cash and assets, gives the children of the late Henson control of the company behind what is perhaps the most famous troupe of puppets in history. The sale of the Jim Henson Co., which is based in Hollywood, by EM.TV & Merchandising of Munich must be approved by United States and international regulators.

NEW YORK - Of the thousands of items salvaged from the World Trade Center disaster - children's photographs and melted credit cards, paperweights and plaques - the families who come to the property room at Police Headquarters are most often in search of one thing: wedding rings, golden symbols of infinity. The next most popular items are watches and earrings, necklaces and bracelets - precious objects intended to last, albeit not amid ashes. To find them, the families bring receipts, hand-drawn pictures, insurance papers, even souvenir wedding videotapes.

SEVILLE, Spain - Here, the orange trees are the only things changing color as autumn takes its hold. The palmeras and the jasmine vines that climb the wall outside my apartment - and fill the patio below with an inimitable scent - are alive and will flourish well into winter. The cypress trees in the gorgeous royal gardens of Alcázar, silent witnesses to endearing displays of Spanish affection, have been that same dusty green for dozens, if not hundreds, of years and won't start changing now. But it's not the fall colors I miss while I'm spending this semester in Spain, even though not a thing could compare with seeing the Blue Ridge Mountains ablaze with autumn.

The debate over which American city has the greatest claim to the legacy of Edgar Allan Poe may go on forevermore. But Saturday in Richmond, Va., Poe's actual descendants - perhaps the only group whose claim to Poe's legacy is indisputable - will announce which city they side with. Surely, the great poet and author's surviving relatives should be able to decide, once and for all, whether Baltimore, Boston, New York, Philadelphia or Richmond has the greatest claim to their illustrious ancestor.

At its peak, the World War II 349th Troop Carrier Wing numbered about 1,500. Now, the number of veterans attending the annual reunion totals just five. When they gathered Saturday night for the commemorative dinner in an Inner Harbor hotel, they were almost, but not quite, outnumbered by the three guest speakers, though with the veterans' wives, children and grandchildren, the reunion total came to 38. Capt. Ernie "Stormie" Earle, 87, made it from Midlothian, Va., with the help of a cane and the memory of his own grandfather, who fought for the Union during the Civil War. Sgt. Ross Gwin, 86, flew in from St. Cloud, Fla. As he disembarked from the commercial jet, he told the pilot, "Real airplanes have propellers."

As Barack Obama surveyed the pandemonium, he spied two familiar faces in the crowd. Striding toward the podium during a campaign rally at the Comcast Center in College Park in February, the Illinois senator paused before addressing his exuberant supporters to speak to his wife's aunt and uncle on the sidelines. "I know, I know - 'It's just Barack,' " he quipped to Carleton and Stanette Robinson of Columbia, guessing at what they were thinking and poking fun at himself. "What's the big deal, right?"

She was the product of a generation that believed children should be seen, not heard, and who was a matriarch in the quiet Bayside village of Shady Side as well as to her seemingly endless family.Sarah Matthews was the mother of 11, the grandmother of 50, the great-grandmother of 121, the great-great-grandmother of 64 and the great-great-great-grandmother of 11."

WASHINGTON - Relatives of victims of the nation's deadliest terrorist attack scanned the 9/11 commission's report for two things yesterday: someone to blame, and practical ways of preventing the failures and destruction of Sept. 11, 2001, from being repeated. The report won cautious praise from family members, who called it a blueprint for reform for everything from intelligence community rifts to national safety measures for high-rise buildings. Also, many appreciated the readable, straightforward tone the report's authors took to explain what went wrong.

The family of a naked, unarmed man who was fatally shot by an Anne Arundel rookie police officer in 2005 will be paid $90,000 by the county, according to a source familiar with the settlement agreement. Relatives of Donald E. Coates Jr., the 20-year-old Glen Burnie man who was killed, sued the county for $20 million in June, alleging that Officer Tommy Pleasant acted with "malice" and that the shooting was unjustified. "They felt that there were a number of factors in the case that indicated that Donald Coates wasn't in a position that he could have caused any harm to this officer," said James L. Rhodes, a lawyer representing the family.
