A portion of Interstate 83 southbound will be closed near the Maryland and Pennsylvania border through the weekend as crews work to repair a deteriorating pipe, Pennsylvania transportation officials said. The highway will be closed between Exit 4 for Shrewsbury, Pa and the Maryland line and drivers will be detoured. Transportation officials had intended to close only one of the two lanes for the repair of the pipe, but found a 8-foot-by-13-inch gap under the road when they arrived.

NEW FREEDOM, Pa. -- It might be expected that excitement would be building as never before in this tiny town that's within hollering distance of the Maryland line. But the mayor sets the record straight; he says no. It's all about a horse race and to see if a colt bred near here can bring another measure of pleasure to its birthplace.This is where Lil E. Tee first drew a breath, learned to walk and then run -- before he ran off with the most famous race in America, the Kentucky Derby. Now on Saturday, Lil E. Tee will be back in home territory when he endeavors to follow up with another auspicious victory in the Preakness at Pimlico.

I had a nice afternoon with Ron and June Smith and some of their friends and family members at the Smith family home in Shrewsbury Tuesday. No tape recorders today, but I wanted to share these pictures taken by June of Ron showing me the game ball Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh gave Smith Sunday night after the Cleveland game. I know, the second picture looks like I am trying to take the ball away from Smith. What can I say? My thanks to the Smiths for inviting me into their home again.

Artist John Stevens, who often paints old, historic brick and stone structures, wanted an old house that would reflect his love of watercolors while offering retail space to display them. Ten years ago, Stevens, who has also sold his paintings at craft shows, found just the place - a two-story brick home circa 1850 - on Main Street in the quiet town of Shrewsbury, Pa. "This place is unique in that it was originally built to be a business and residence, and always has been," he said of the property that, over the years, served such commercial endeavors as an ice-cream parlor and antique shop.
