MARDELA SPRINGS -- Commissioner Anthony Severn knows some of his neighbors are angry about the right-to-life proclamation he's planning to introduce at tonight's town commission meeting. He doesn't think little Mardela Springs can end the national debate on abortion, but if a little publicity gets people thinking, he figures it's worth a few ruffled feathers on Main Street. "A little town like ours certainly has no authority to affect a Supreme Court decision," Severn said. "But if we had avoided everything divisive, we'd still be a British colony, black people would still be slaves, people would still be dying in Vietnam."

One Maryland shore town is deciding whether to create a municipal website. Commissioners of Mardela Springs tell the Daily Times of Salisbury that they're considering a website to promote open government and to keep residents informed about events and meetings. The town currently spreads information by mailing out monthly newsletters. Commission president Stanford Robinson says the town is concerned about possible startup costs. He says it won't be able to start the site if it would cost the town $400 to $500 a year.

MARDELA SPRINGS -- Maryland's first casualty of the war in Afghanistan was returned to the Eastern Shore yesterday as his family and friends made plans for the biggest funeral this tiny Wicomico County town has ever seen -- a spectacle his mother says Marine Staff. Sgt. Walter F. Cohee III would have loved. "He was always such a ham. I know he'd be thrilled with all this attention," said Jeanne Cohee. "It's been a little frustrating not knowing when they'd bring him home." Cohee's body arrived at Dover Air Force Base about 6 p.m. yesterday from Ramstein, Germany, said Lt. Olivia Nelson, a spokeswoman for the Delaware base that houses the Defense Department's largest mortuary.

In January, a faraway war in Afghanistan came home to Mardela Springs. The death of Trae Cohee rippled down Main Street and shook the place to its core. But in grieving and remembering and comforting each other, the people of Mardela Springs learned something about themselves. The boy they raised had dedicated himself completely and wholly to values they held dear. He had become a man. He had become a Marine. He had served them with honor. To a traveler barreling down Highway 50 on the way to Ocean City, Mardela Springs looks like nothing but a stoplight and a produce stand.

"He was just a good kid, just a good kid," said his mother, Jeanne Cohee, in a eulogy mixed with tears and laughter, as hundreds of mourners packed the town's volunteer fire hall for the funeral.

NOT SO LONG AGO, young Trae Cohee served as a volunteer at the Station Street fire house in Mardela Springs, on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Tomorrow he will return there one last time. That's where the visitation and funeral will be for Staff Sgt. Walter F. Cohee III, known to his friends as "Trae" for the roman numerals following his name. The 26-year-old Marine was killed last Sunday in northern Afghanistan when his helicopter slammed into the side of a mountain. The crash happened far from the small town of Mardela Springs where Trae grew up, played soccer and dreamed of seeing the world.
