MARYDEL - The tiny town of Marydel came close to giving in. Giving in to decades of decline that began when the last rail cars stopped running. To landlords who've cut up more and more of its old houses into cheap rental units. To a line that splits Marydel's 100 or so inhabitants from their unincorporated neighbors across the Delaware border. To apathy that prompted three members of the town's five-member commission to quit their volunteer posts. As it turns out, the resignations of Mayor Lori Steele, her husband, Doug, and her sister, Kim Steele - which would have shut down the government and cost the town its charter - just might have been the boost the Eastern Shore town needed.

MARYDEL -- When the Rev. Chris LaBarge first came to this hardscrabble little town that straddles the Mason-Dixon Line, local officials told him there were virtually no Hispanics here. A decade later, 250 people pack a white frame church every Sunday night to hear "Father Chris" say Mass in Spanish. His Eastern Shore parish offers Latino immigrants their own Sunday school, Bible study, social groups, English classes and computer training. LaBarge estimates that Caroline County today is home to at least 2,000 Latinos from Guatemala and Mexico.
