Scenes in Woodland Beach often seem to have sprung from a Norman Rockwell painting. Even as winter's chill approaches, memories linger of children walking down Shore Drive on an early summer morning, fishing poles and crab nets in hand. Ah, the essence of Americana. For Alice Bever, the tight-knit neighborhood had such a lure that she didn't hesitate to move from a big house with an in-ground swimming pool in College Park to a converted cottage in the water-lovers' town just more than nine years ago. The beauty of Woodland Beach is, of course, the beaches.

A 38-year-old crabber and fisherman apparently drowned Sunday night in the South River off Woodland Beach in Edgewater, police said. The body of Timothy Ulysses Neimiller of the 8100 block of Spalding Circle in Severn was discovered by a Woodland Beach resident, who called police. Officers found Neimiller dead when they arrived, said Officer Charles Ravenell, a police spokesman. "At this time, it's believed this was an accidental drowning," he said. Detectives were trying to determine yesterday when Neimiller, a heating and air-conditioning service worker, was last seen alive and were searching for details about the circumstances of his death.

James "Jay" Osterman, the pilot killed Wednesday in a helicopter crash at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, was supposed to work at the Woodland Beach fire station this morning. As the station's engine driver, Osterman would have been finishing a 24-hour shift, probably standing in the bay of the Edgewater fire house ready, if needed, to rescue someone from a burning house or a fiery car accident, his colleagues said. If he wasn't working, he would've been flying, they said. Instead, Osterman's death was being mourned at airfields and fire stations throughout the region.

As readership grows, magazine changes to a name that fitsAnnapolitan magazine had been around more than two decades, but its name still proved a mouthful for some readers. The monthly lifestyle magazine was called everything from "Annapopolitician" to "Annapolician," said editor Phil Evans.Hence the new name, Annapolis, which made its debut in the April issue.Mr. Evans said he considered changing the name when he bought the magazine in 1984, and again in 1987 when the publication became full-sized, but hesitated because readers identified with Annapolitan.
