FREDERICK, Md. - One of the memories guitarist and storyteller Doc Watson has been sharing recently is about the time a faith doctor healed his father. His father had hurt his back one summer doing heavy work with a crew installing a spur line for the railroad. He had to use canes to walk, and he couldn't work or sleep on his own bed because of the pain. "When the prayer was finished, (my father) dropped his canes ... and walked over to the truck," said Watson. But Watson, who had lost his vision as a young child and was about 6 years old at the time his father visited the faith doctor, wasn't healed.

email@example.com A cold November wind whipped through town Friday night, but inside The Maryland Theatre, it was hot with the sounds of Southern bluegrass. Ricky Skaggs had come to town. Skaggs, 48, and his six-man band played old and new songs during their show, including "Why did you wander?" "Lonesome night," and "Black-eyed Susie. " Before the 8 p.m. show, fans stood in line as they waited to enter the theater, sometimes spilling outside. Vicki Davies tried to explain why she likes Skaggs' music.
