When the Veterans Affairs Medical Center at Perry Point flipped the switch on the new closed-circuit cameras in the multidenominational chapel, many of the volunteers who helped raise the $9,317 for the system thought the center's bedridden patients would be able to watch religious services in their rooms. That was in November 2000. But most of the patients on the campus still can't see what's going on in the chapel without walking down there on their own. The cable system at the 364-acre center is too old to carry the signal from the chapel to Perry Point's origination station.

The beautiful pictures of historic buildings attracted me to reading "Closing the door on history" (Feb. 9), about how many of those structures are woefully short on maintenance due to budget cuts. To support the idea that the cost of such maintenance is over budget, the article focused on renovation of the Perry Point grist mill as a training site and as a small museum. But "to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the agency would have to install an elevator.

PERRY POINT - The paint is peeling on the square columns outside the 80-bed nursing home at the Perry Point VA Medical Center. The building is in better shape inside, but while the peach and sea foam-green walls are cheerier, they hide flaws, too: uneven heating and cooling systems, poor floor designs and wires and pipes that keep maintenance engineers hopping. The building's slow deterioration comes as no surprise: Built in 1924, the two-story nursing home is older than many of the patients it houses.

PERRYVILLE - Perry Point seems worlds away from Baghdad. But ask Bob Patterson, an engineer technician at the Perry Point VA Medical Center and a Vietnam War veteran, and he will tell you otherwise. For him and others who fought in wars past, the battle remains. And the nation's latest conflict with Iraq is bringing the memories back. Patterson was 18 years old when he left his home in Delaware for the jungles of Vietnam. It was 1967. For 12 months, he fought alongside fellow soldiers of the 1st Air Cavalry Division.

Veterans Affairs officials are considering leasing part of the 364-acre Perry Point medical campus to private users to generate funds for renovation and maintenance at the aging facility, administrators said yesterday. But Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, a Maryland Democrat who held a fact-finding hearing at the facility yesterday, said that the concept was a bad one and that the campus should not be leased out to the private sector. Officials who made the announcement at the hearing stressed that although the idea was included in the recent draft of a VA study, any private leasing is still in the concept phase and might not make it into practice.

The Perryville town commissioners do their town a service by standing firm on the issue of whether the town will end up being financially responsible for a road that becomes a major truck access route for the Perry Point VA Medical Center. The federal veterans installation has been in place at Perry Point for decades, and truck access has long been a problem. As the years go by, trucks get bigger, but the space under the railroad bridges in Perryville doesn't grow. It's trucks that bring in the substantial loads of supplies needed at Perry Point, and for a number of years getting trucks under bridges and onto the facility has been a growing problem.

Dr. Frank J. Ayd Jr., a Baltimore psychiatrist who pioneered the field of psychopharmacology when he began treating schizophrenics with Thorazine in the early 1950s, died in his sleep Monday at Lorien Mays Chapel Health Care Center. He was 87. At a time when the psychiatric establishment rejected the notion that mental illness was rooted in biology, Dr. Ayd championed the use of medications to adjust brain chemistry and, in so doing, relieve a patient's suffering. "He was a biological psychiatrist, one of the important kinds of people who in spite of - and against - the establishment had the guts to stand up and really do things," said Dr. Thomas Ban, an emeritus professor of psychiatry at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.

On the morning of February 2nd, 2007, ELMER MOSLEY, JR., of Havre de Grace, Maryland died a very "wealthy" man. True wealth is never fairly measured by the amount of money and material possessions one accumulates in their lifetime. No, wealth is measured by focusing on three factors: family; the quality of one's friendships; most importantly, the good deeds that one has done in their lifetime. Using that standard of measurement Elmer Mosley Jr. was a billionaire. Elmer Mosley's "rags to riches" story began January 25, 1935 in Milford, Delaware when he was born to the late Elmer Mosley Sr. and Hazel Carney.

PERRY POINT - A Vietnam War hero's odyssey continues at a Perryville veterans hospital as family members appeal a decision by doctors to move the paralyzed Bel Air man to a nursing home facility. Dennis Storm, a former Marine captain whose medical evacuation from Indonesia to Maryland captured the state's attention during the past year, will remain at Perry Point Veterans Affairs Medical Center pending the appeal. According to family members and medical records, issues related to a bedsore on his lower back also contributed to the delay.
