On June 24, 1862, Maj. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson moved his troops south out of the Shenandoah Valley, giving the Union army near Richmond, Va., reason to believe that danger was imminent. Rumor had it that Jackson's Army of the Valley was about 50 miles away on the Virginia Central Railroad and was planning to attack Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan's force near Richmond by June 28. McClellan was concerned about Jackson's maneuvers and wanted to step up his campaign to seize the Confederate capital.

I do not believe keeping the Stanley name on the new library is a problem, unless I'm missing something. The deed that accompanied the land transfer did stipulate that it be named for the Stanley family but it did not indicate that it should be Charles's name specifically. In the Laurel Historical Society archival picture from May 1967 when it was dedicated, the name on the building is simply Stanley. Maybe someone later decided that Charles was the most prominent member of the family and attached his name in the records, but my understanding is the name was driven by the deeding of the land by Charles Stanley's heirs.

Editor: Thank you, Harford County, for joining Oak Grove Baptist Church in our third annual Women's Conference held on April 13. With nearly 150 in attendance, we enjoyed the lavish account by DeeDee Jonrowe of her life on the Iditarod Trail over the past 31 years as a musher in Alaska. DeeDee is the foremost female dog musher competing in the world today and a breast cancer survivor. Her accounts of the life lessons learned on the Iditarod Trail have bolstered her desire to honor God in her racing and daily life.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Two first-half touchdowns were all it took yesterday as the Northwood Rams Pee Wee team got past the PAL South Raiders of Raleigh, N.C., 12-0, in the opening game of the 2000 Pop Warner Super Bowl at Walt Disney World's Wide World of Sports complex. The win sends the Rams (13-0) to the national championship game against the Tri Town Raiders of Bloomington, Ind. "We played a good strong football game today," said Rams coach Lenny Blackston. "The defense stopped them when they had to and defense will win down here."

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- For as long as even the very oldest can remember, the wail of warning sirens atop courthouses, little police stations, and volunteer fire departments has pierced the calm of the drowsy Alabama communities of Rock Creek, Oak Grove, and Sylvan Springs.It chases the people deep into their basements and down on their knees, till the skies clear and they walk outside to see who was spared, who was not.Always, their prayers seemed to nudge the full force of the wind away, so that while a few lives have always been lost, a few houses destroyed, the communities have survived.

As a follow up the wonderful piece written by Mike McLaughlin last week ("Old Town bids farewell to oldest resident"), I wanted to let people know of the plan for the area. When the plans for Park Place were approved by the mayor and City Council, the preservation of the old oak tree was included in their approval. The last remnant of the Oak Grove, to which the adjoining subdivision is named, became itself a victim of age. As mentioned by Mike McLaughlin, the tree started to decay, and was considered a loss and not possible to save.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Frantic rescue workers hacked through splintered trees and clawed through ruined houses in parts of the Southeast, searching for survivors from tornadoes that left roads littered with bodies, whole communities destroyed and at least 38 people dead.A line of storms ripped through one small town after another in Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia, destroying homes, churches and schools, burying hundreds in rubble, sucking people out of their houses and leaving one man dead in the branches of a tree.

Old Town Laurel's oldest resident, one who stood silent witness to the birth of our country, the creation of our town and the growth of the modern world, has died. On Nov. 18, the 250-year-old champion willow oak, located at Park Place on Talbott Avenue between Seventh and Eighth streets, succumbed to the rigors of that long life and the stresses of the 21st century, and fell to the saw. Once, it was just one of many large trees that made up the oak grove that dominated that section of Laurel, and from which the city's historically black neighborhood, the Grove, took its name.
