ISLE OF WIGHT, Va. - A mere mention of the phrase - "the Revolution" - sets Tom Finderson turning. "Unlike Massachusetts," says the Isle of Wight resident, "Virginia never wrote her Revolutionary War history." Here Finderson doesn't mean that the details of Yorktown are lacking. Quite the opposite. He is frustrated that the headline-grabbing battles and names have obscured the stories about men who weren't generals. A 10-year search For the past 10 years, Finderson has been intent on knowing the life of Col. Josiah Parker, a man whose story, Finderson says, has been kept only by history-minded stalwarts within Isle of Wight and the Parker family.

It was a moody Saturday, the kind of day you want to be anywhere but outdoors. A friend of mine called and suggested we kill the morning at a show of antique advertisements at the Timonium Fairgrounds.Before long I was looking over old tin trays from long-vanished Baltimore breweries, timetables from the B&O Railroad and beautifully crafted advertising signs from many different companies. I watched a collector friend walk out with a knockout -- a finely rendered mirrored panel promoting Sherwood rye.He looked as though he'd bagged a rare item, and he had. He also had just the look my grandfather had one long-gone Christmas morning.

After taking a vacation from much of the mid-Atlantic coast last winter, migrating seals have been spotted making a return to Ocean City 's bays and beaches. Two or three gray or harbor seals have been spotted so far, according to reports relayed to the Maryland Coastal Bays Program.

Seal trackers are encouraging spectators to report and document sightings.

ISLE OF WIGHT, Va. - Celestine Savage ponders for a moment why some people want to forget their childhoods and some people want to remember them. Savage wants to remember her school days walking miles to her schoolhouse, a small wooden building with a musty smell, a pot-bellied stove and secondhand books. For people like Savage, who attended Isle of Wight's segregated, one- and two-room schoolhouses in the first half of the 20th century, memories came flooding back recently, when Smithfield officials said they wanted to make a museum out of the old Christian Home school building.

Charles P. Roman, 92, the New York City advertising pioneer who turned bodybuilder Charles Atlas into an icon of American manhood, died Friday. Mr. Roman came up with the Atlas "Dynamic-Tension" trademark, as well as the "I was a 97-pound weakling" slogan. He also devised the long-running comic strip ad in which a brawny bully kicks sand in the face of a skinny man, who then takes the Atlas course and knocks out the bully. The slogan and the ad were based on the life of Mr. Atlas, who was sickly as a child.

ISLE OF WIGHT -- Lytton Musselman walked on an emerald carpet of ferns, under a soaring canopy of pines. "You won't see this anywhere else in Virginia," said Musselman, chairman of Old Dominion University's biology department. He's right. To see what much of Tidewater looked like before logging and other human intervention destroyed 1.5 million acres of primeval Virginia forest, you've got to know the back roads around Zuni. There you'll find the Zuni Pine Barrens, part of the Blackwater Ecologic Preserve, and the only protected stand of longleaf pine in Virginia.
