RAYMOND P. SHAFER, 89 Pennsylvania governor A Republican who oversaw tax increases to finance social programs as Pennsylvania's governor from 1967 to 1971 and later pushed for federal decriminalization of personal marijuana use, died Tuesday in Pittsburgh. Mr. Shafer led an overhaul of the state constitution, which had grown outdated, winning several changes from the Republican-controlled legislature and voters. But by the time his term ended, the state's finances were in shambles, partly because of large spending increases he pushed.

MARIAN WESTER SHAFER, age 83, died on April 1, 2004, in Lakeway, TX. Some people described Marian as a pricklypear - tough as nails on the outside, but all soft and sweet on the inside. Born in Seymour, Missouri, and reared in nearby Fordland, MO, she was blessed with keen intelligence, a love of reading and persistent intellectual curiosity. While in high school, she kept house on her parents' Grade A Dairy Farm just outside town along with reading and participating on the debate team.

The Ravens' turnover will not be limited to the locker room. Before a salary cap crunch forces a major roster overhaul, the team lost its second coach this off-season when secondary coach Steve Shafer announced his retirement. Defensive backs coach Donnie Henderson will assume the duties of Shafer, 61, the senior member of the Ravens' staff. That means there could be four changes in a span of two weeks to a staff that has had to replace only one coach in Brian Billick's first three seasons.

2000 Shafer Firebreak, Napa Valley ($33). This proprietary red wine from the red-hot Shafer winery isn't exactly cheap, but it more than justifies its price tag. A blend of 94 percent sangiovese and 6 percent cabernet sauvignon, Firebreak is Shafer's answer to Italy's so-called "super-Tuscan" blends. This complex, rich wine doesn't duplicate the style but comes close enough to interest the same tasters. It's a full-bodied wine with fascinating notes of black cherry, blueberry, chocolate, herbs and Asian spices.

BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio - One hardship after another seemed to strike the Shafer family, which owned what had been one of the most pristine and prosperous dairy farms in this central Ohio community but could hardly pay its bills in recent years, say neighbors. The 650-acre farm along Highway 47 is overgrown and produces little milk. It began to fall into disrepair about a decade ago, and then the owners, Steve and Sheri Shafer, divorced, said a neighbor, Clifford Kelly. Sheri Shafer was left with a school-age son and daughter, and the farm to run with her parents.

City police are investigating a possible parking scheme around PSINet Stadium during Ravens games, in which fans pay to park on private lots, only to find later that their cars have been towed and they have to pay $210 cash each to get them back. People have complained about the problem after the past two home football games, prompting the city's towing board, which licenses tow companies, to investigate as well. It is not clear, police say, whether the operators of the parking lots or the tow company - or both - are at fault.
