It should be easy to dismiss the idea of movies based on amusement-park rides as creative bankruptcy of the most pallid sort; how could this possibly be good? But then Disney confounded such conventional wisdom with last summer's Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, a movie that wholeheartedly embraced its cliches even while breathing new life into them. The Haunted Mansion is a return to form - bad form. Lifeless, unimaginative and almost determinedly uninspired, it's paint-by-numbers filmmaking at its dreariest.

Peralynna Manor is a dream of a house for Cynthia Lynn that opened the doors to a business she never imagined. Now her white mansion-turned-boarding house - stretched behind a white stone wall off Route 108 in Columbia - is doing so much business that Lynn and her husband, David, are expanding, transforming a six-bay garage into eight new luxury suites. The $500,000 project, which will include renovating the existing eight suites and expanding the kitchen, is planned to be completed by September, and will more than triple revenue, Lynn said.

The state attorney general's office agreed yesterday to mediate an unusual complaint from the residents of a 20-year-old Pasadena subdivision who say the developers they bought their homes from lied to them.Residents say they were told that Mansion House Crossing, a dead-end road leading to a horse farm and wooded grove, would never become a thoroughfare. A little more than 10 years ago, the county cut through the farm and the woods to connect Mansion House to two main arteries on the peninsula, Mountain Road on one end and Duvall Highway on the other.

EASTCHESTER, N.Y. - As houses continue to mutate into ever larger forms, suburban communities are grappling with a new quandary: How big is too big, and what can suburban communities do to try to rein in the monster house next door? In recent years, oversized homes - labeled McMansions by some - have spread from spacious gated enclaves to close-in suburbs, where they often dwarf their neighbors. Now, town officials, urban planners and irate neighbors in suburbs across the United States are scrambling to find ways to rewrite zoning codes to restrict the size of new houses and additions to existing ones.

Archaeologists digging in the basement of the Charles Carroll House in Annapolis have discovered a cache of dozens of objects that are linked to West African religious roots.The ritual objects are believed to have been buried beneath the floorboards by slaves serving the Carroll family in the early 1800s.The polished pebbles, rock crystals, disks and bones are identical to sacred objects that were used to tell the future, communicate with the dead and assure good luck in a part of West Africa that is now Sierra Leone.
