George Washington was desperate. His troops, encamped at Valley Forge, Pa., in the winter of 1777-78, were dropping dead by the hundreds from disease and the cold. Near naked and starving, the Americans faced fierce battles, not against the British -- those took place earlier, and more would come later, at other places, with the help of our young nation's staunchest ally, France. Instead, Washington's biggest immediate obstacles were the cold and a lack of food. He begged for help. And as "dreadful" as things were, he warned, they were about to get worse.

VALLEY FORGE, Pa. -- Of all the creatures caught up in suburban sprawl, few possess a more idyllic sanctuary than the white-tail deer herd of Valley Forge National Historical Park as they graze and multiply in safety while shopping malls and home developments boom on the horizon. And few creatures are more bedeviled by the deer's position of privilege -- by the 1,000-member herd's annual growth rate of 20 percent as park hunting is absolutely barred -- than the neighboring homeowners of the Valley Forge Citizens for Deer Control Inc. They intercept deer daily on roads and backyard patios and bridle in civic meetings at their doe-eyed ubiquity.

VALLEY FORGE, Pa. -- Once a remote Revolutionary War encampment, Valley Forge National Historical Park is being overrun by the modern threats of traffic congestion and suburban sprawl, officials warn. "Valley Forge is very much threatened," said Marie Rust, the National Park Service regional director. "It's a national and cultural resource that's being degraded by traffic and pollution from development." Close to the King of Prussia mall, the Route 202 corridor and the booming Chester County suburbs, the park has traffic troubles that have become overwhelming, Rust said, since most commuters head toward Philadelphia.

The National Park Service and Toll Bros. are on the brink of a deal that would put an end to the developer's hotly protested plan for a subdivision of 62 luxury homes inside Valley Forge National Historical Park. The largest builder of high-end housing in the United States. Toll intended to turn a privately owned tract on the north side into Valley Forge Overlook - the first such development within the boundaries of any national historical park. Impelled by the public outrage that has erupted across the country, the park service now is negotiating to buy the land, reportedly valued at about $10 million, in order to spare it. "I'm optimistic this is going to work because of the commitment of all parties involved to make it work," said U.S. Rep. Joseph Hoeffel, a Pennsylvania Democrat who is acting as intermediary in talks between Toll and the park service.

Sixty years ago, a beetle-borne fungus arrived in the Unite States and began killing off Ulmus americana, the American elm.Dutch elm disease slowly destroyed the shady ambience of town squares, parks and college campuses. The infection wilted leaves, rotted limbs and eventually wiped out nearly 80 million trees.Now, scientists may have developed a solution. Researchers at the National Arboretum in Washington have created two varieties of elm tree that seem more resistant than any others to Ophiostoma ulmi, and thus may allow a comeback for the elm and the notably beautiful landscape it provides.

Now Delaware may get to feel consumers' pain Jay Hancock's column "Plan to buy MBNA may deliver a big blow to tiny Delaware" (July 6) accurately points out the problems that arise when a state changes its rules to lure a big corporation and the accompanying jobs. In Delaware's case, the changes in state law offered up on a silver platter to MBNA (the lifting of the limits on interest rates and fees charged to credit card customers) resulted in a nonstop, no-limit assault on consumers.

PRESIDENT BUSH had the nerve to invoke Valley Forge on Monday during a speech about the war in Iraq. Americans persevered through "terrible hardships and losses" back then, he said, and presumably Iraq will be no different. Question No. 1: In what ways are the American Revolution and the war in Iraq similar? Answer: In no ways. Question No. 2: In what ways are George Washington and George W. Bush similar? Answer: See above. If the commander in chief needs reminding, the encampment at Valley Forge during the winter of 1777-1778 was the darkest hour of the struggle for independence.

No amount of practice or conditioning could have prepared running back Rob Utz for the emotional blow he and the rest of the Loyola High football family absorbed two months ago. In the weeks since teammate Van Brooks suffered a spinal cord injury in a game against Georgetown Prep, however, Utz said the Dons have at least come to terms with the ordeal. "I think definitely we've bonded as a team, because if we didn't our season would have turned downhill," Utz said. "We had to come together and say, `Look, this is what happened, but we have to be strong together, be strong for Van and continue our season.

Lincoln (Pa.) is a Division III school located 60 miles north of Baltimore. Valley Forge is a Division II school.
