      They retired, again. As you know, Lou was already retired asa police officer. They still live there, and were present at heritage Days and the Rafuse's lecture, etc. They just do not take visitors anymore. The structure belongs to the NPS, but a long-term lease done in the 1980's allowed a local couple to restore it and use it within limited commercial guidelines, such as a B&B, buth tey do not have to do so. Lou said he was just tired of the grind so they gave up the B&B.

      Speaking of inns, I've been told that Lou and Regina Clark no longer operate a B&B out of the Piper Farm. If so, does anyone know what happened? (I haven't been there since 2002.)

      I adore the Rohrbach Inn. I stayed there on every occasion while doing my research. The folks who owned it then have long since sold it. Chris and Denise Yeager still live nearby. I am endebted to them. Real good folks -- and a very nice B&B.

      Thanks for the report. I was in the area last weekend while attending the September Storm event with my wife who was one of the merchants at the event. We stayed at the Jacob Rohrbach Inn and dined at Captain Benders several times. On Friday, I toured the new clearing and also spent some time at the Pry House. I made some connections with the South Mountain Battlefield folks. I was also drawn again to the Bloody Lane--remembering my experience with the Antietam Documentary filming. It was a very hot day so I rested in the shade of the National Cemetery before returning to the event site. While not an organized tour, it was a rewarding trek.

      I wish that I could have stayed through this weekend to meet up with you and the others.
