Roush, 40, of Martinsburg, was one of the many people who had forged an emotional connection with the waterfowl. "They were friends of mine," said Roush, who fed the birds and picked up trash at the park that was, for her, a place to meditate and connect with nature.

HARPERS FERRY, W.VA. charlestown@herald-mail.com Kyle Myles' tennis shoes sank into the mud along the shore of the pond, making a sucking sound as he tried to lift them to move from spot to spot. Myles' job was planting irises in the muddy water, and the 12-year-old Harpers Ferry Middle School student took special care as he carefully packed soil around the base of the delicate water flowers. "This is really good. This is probably one of the best field trips I've ever had," Myles said.
