Defending Carroll GeneralNormally, when we write you, we make every effort to praise the articles which appear about the hospital. This time, however, we want to express our disappointment in Donna Boller's story about a psychiatric patient's experience in our emergency room, which appeared Dec. 21.Let me stress that our disappointment is not related to negative coverage per se, but to the fact that The Sun did not present a more balanced story. The problem begins with the headline which raises questions about the quality of care this patient received, when in fact, there was no indication whatsoever that the patient was not well cared for.The patient herself describes her care as "humane" in the article.

Experience a Civil War Christmas at the Shriver House Museum in Gettysburg, Pa., Saturdays through Dec. 17. Visit the holiday-decorated 1860-era home of George and Hettie Shriver (below), and learn how the war affected them, their children and their home. Tours of the home will feature a candle-laden Christmas tree on the parlor table, a fire roaring in the quiet room and a Confederate sharpshooters' nest in the attic. Guides in period dress will recount the tale of the Shriver family, including how George went off to join the Union army in 1861, and Hettie, fearing the war getting ever nearer to her home in 1863, left with her young children to seek refuge at her parents' farm three miles south.
