SHARPSBURG adamb@herald-mail.com The last two members of the Tolson Chapel congregation closed the doors of the small, wooden building in Sharpsburg 10 years ago. When Edith Wallace reopened that door five years later, the chapel seemed frozen in time. "We opened the door and the Bible was still open on the table," Wallace said. The red-shingled building on East High Street closed in 1995 as a church. It wasn't until 2000 that Wallace discovered the building.

marlob@herald-mail.com When Willard and Mary Graves first got involved in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel at St. Maria Goretti four years ago, they may not have been expecting miracles but they think they got one nonetheless. "A lady who was writing poetry to Jesus during her visit to the chapel took a picture of the (vessel) that holds the Eucharist and when her film was developed, there were rays of light emanating from it," Willard Graves said. Countless flash pictures have been taken both before and after the "miraculous" 2003 photo and nothing even close has ever shown up, he said.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources recently amended its alcohol policy to permit the use of alcohol at state forest campsites. The change went into effect in May. At the same time, the policy prohibiting alcohol in Maryland's state parks, including at family campgrounds, remains in place, the DNR said in an e-mailed release. Under the previous policy, alcohol was prohibited in state parks and state forests. "We were going to make it prohibited at state forests, but because they are so remote and so far away from each other, we didn't have the same number of incidents occurring there as we did at the state parks," said Josh Davidsburg, senior communications manager for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.
