I arrived in America on June 15 and I was very excited to discover this country. Two days after I arrived, my host sister and I went to a summer camp in southwest Virginia. In this camp, I liked a lot of things. The landscape has many trees, the hills were high and that was so relaxing. I liked waking up to birds singing. The cabins don't have electricity, and I was scared to live without electricity at the beginning. I met a lot of people at camp who were really patient with me, because at the beginning I had some difficulties to understand English.

I came to Hagerstown on May 18 for six weeks, it was my fifth trip to the USA. I went to different places such as New York, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Tampa, but it was my first time in a small town. When I arrived, I was scared about, "How will my host family be?" and, "Will they understand my English with my French accent?" A lot of questions made me feel nervous. There is an American stereotype in France, so I expected that my host family would eat a lot of junk food, watch a lot of the TV. That was not the case.

katec@herald-mail.com Many of the details of the events of Nov. 25, 1942, blur in Louise Gradstein Dillery's mind. Others are crystal clear. She lived with her father in Paris. France had fallen to German control on June 14, 1940, and times were hard. Gradstein, a hardworking man, never took a day off from his job at a factory making springs, despite painful stomach ulcers. But on that particular day, he was too sick to go to work, too ill even to go to the Paris town hall with his food-ration coupons.

PARIS (AP) -- A lone thief stole five paintings possibly worth hundreds of millions of euros, including major works by Picasso and Matisse, in a brazen overnight heist at a Paris modern art museum, police and prosecutors said Thursday. The paintings disappeared early Thursday from the Paris Museum of Modern Art, across the Seine River from the Eiffel Tower. Investigators have cordoned off the museum, in one of the French capital's most tourist-frequented neighborhoods. The museum's security system was disabled, and a single masked intruder was caught on a video surveillance camera, according to Christophe Girard, deputy culture secretary at Paris City Hall.
