SALISBURY -- Psychiatric experts and other witnesses presented radically different portraits yesterday of Francis Mario Zito, an Eastern Shore man accused of killing two lawmen last year in a Queen Anne's County trailer park. Defense attorneys rested their case with testimony from a retired psychiatric nurse who befriended Zito nearly 20 years ago in his native Pennsylvania and yesterday described him as incoherent. A neurologist hired by Zito's public defenders told jurors in the Wicomico County courtroom, where the case was moved because of pretrial publicity, that he believes Zito's lifelong history of severe mental illness has been worsened by brain damage that is either genetic or was suffered before he was born.

Residents of a trailer park south of Mount Airy - upset that their community is being eyed for a possible employment campus zone - filled the meeting room of the Carroll County Planning and Zoning Commission yesterday to voice their opposition. It was not supposed to be a public hearing, merely a work session for county planning staff to outline proposals for a new Mount Airy and Environs Community Comprehensive Plan. But planning commission Chairman Edward M. Beard allowed the residents to speak and began the meeting early, as the room began to fill early with nearly 100 Carroll County residents.

MARYDEL -- Eufemia Fuentes scooped up a handful of cornmeal mix, deftly rolled it into a ball, gently pressed it with three knuckles of her right hand, slipped it between wax paper in a steel press and flattened it. Another tortilla was ready for the griddle.The Walker trailer park off Route 311, where Fuentes and scores of other Guatemalan immigrants live in this Caroline County town near the Delaware border, has acquired a distinctive flavor. Tejano music blares from car stereos, children peer from the windows of rundown trailers, and immigrants trudge home from jobs in poultry-processing plants.

Rebecca Hulit's menagerie mostly charmed children in her Howard County trailer park community -- until Kiss-Kiss, a diaper-wearing duck, joined the crew.Adopted six months ago when it was only a duckling, Kiss-Kiss prefers to stay indoors with Hulit. It sleeps and showers with her. It even throws little tantrums if not properly tucked in at night.During waking hours, Kiss-Kiss -- its bottom wrapped in diapers made of plastic, batting and cotton rags -- prances around the trailer in one of eight outfits that Hulit has made, including two velour ones for dressing up and six not-so-dressy housecoats.

The pink flamingo-shaped lights decorating the balcony rail of a mobile home in Florida signal the level of taste on display in “The Great American Trailer Park Musical.” This 2005 off-Broadway musical indulges in lowbrow satire, but the music and lyrics by David Nehls and book by Betsy Kelso are highly skillful in conveying  lowly material. If the production at the Audrey Herman Spotlighters Theatre immediately gets into the show’s trashy spirit, it’s surely because four of the cast members (Maribeth Eckenrode, Kristen Zwobot, Karina Ferry and R. Brett Rohrer)
