TODD POINT -- Phil Spedden is a regular on the "liars bench" next to a roaring wood stove where locals have gathered daily for nearly 60 years in John Lewis' Grocery. They gossip, swap stories, sip coffee and wrangle over politics as somebody throws another log on the fire. This year, the talk is often about the unusually lively race in Maryland's 1st Congressional District, where two state legislators are trying to oust Rep. Wayne T. Gilchrest in the Republican primary. Spedden, a retired farmer, said various views can be heard about that among the wood-stove gang here in Dorchester County.

Along the wooded edges of an Anne Arundel County field, where the shelter of trees offers a respite from the hot August sun, a 16th-century Tudor village is bustling with excited townspeople as they anticipate the arrival of honored guests. But the folks cleaning and decorating the provincial locale don't actually live in the village. The tiny town known as Revel Grove isn't a real place at all. The townspeople are vendors, actors, musicians and athletes who are preparing the fantastical location for this weekend, when the 27th Annual Maryland Renaissance Festival begins.

BOONSBORO -- A woman runs to a park ranger at Greenbrier State Park and frantically blurts out: "Mi hija se ha perdido."What does the typical U.S.-born park ranger do? Probably get to the public address system or a telephone to track down someone to translate Spanish."Usually some child shows up and interprets for us," said Daniel P. Spedden, park manager of the South Mountain Recreation Area, which includes the 1,200-acre park in Washington County, east of Hagerstown."But that's precious seconds you don't want to waste in that instance.

The British were "befuddled," reports Baltimorean Carolyn Spedden. "Why is an American woman so interested in this?" she was asked by everyone from radio interviewers to London cabbies. "This" refers to Quest: The Legend of the Green Knight, Spedden's adaptation of the 14th-century narrative poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. A multimedia extravaganza that was performed in a 780-seat heated tent and featured 11 actors, five acrobats and three horseback riders, Quest ended its two-and-a-half-week premiere run in London's Clapham Common on Jan. 3. Marylanders familiar with Spedden's career will find the interest in her far less surprising.

CAMBRIDGE - Carol Clark says she has a permanent guest in the parlor of her Dorchester County farmhouse. "There's a ghost in here, and the ghost plays the organ every once in a while," she says of the spirit, which is rumored to be a deceased aunt in the family that owned the house for nearly a century. "But the ghost only knows one chord." At least, she jokes, it's a friendly chord. In spite of its musical shortcomings, the ghost has been the least problematic of the amenities Clark inherited with the home, which was built in 1899.
