Pages of prayers. Computer equipment. Toilet paper. Soy sauce. Korean liquor. Laundry detergent. Those were among the supplies investigators say they found in the abandoned airplane hangar next to the Tannersville, Pa., field where Eric Frein was captured last week. The long list of items was made public Wednesday in a search warrant filed in Monroe County Court. Neither document nor investigators said Frein used the items or put them into the building. But the list appears to offer insight into how the alleged killer of a state trooper survived and evaded police for 48 days in the Poconos.

For more than a half-century, the Army's flight activity center has worked out of Hangar 5 on the Navy side of what is now Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. The hangar was originally designed for the Navy's antisubmarine blimp fleet during World War II, and was later taken over by the Army, which now needs a larger, more modern facility. This month, the first step was taken toward a new $42 million complex that will focus on aviation modification, research, development, and maintenance.

COLLEGE basketball's opening weekend featured games in such exotic places as an aircraft carrier outside San Diego, a giant airplane hangar in Germany, and Brooklyn, N.Y. Kent, Ohio, really does not qualify as exotic, but after 123 games on Friday, 51 Saturday, 42 Sunday and 60 Monday, Temple will finally start its season at Kent State on Tuesday, as part of the ESPN hoops marathon, 11 games in 24 hours. If you got up real early, maybe you saw Stony Brook at Rider (6 a.m.) before reading this story.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - A former adviser to John Edwards recounted Wednesday how the former presidential candidate's now-deceased wife indignantly confronted her husband, baring her chest in front of staff members the day after a tabloid reported that he was cheating on her. During a session that saw Edwards' 30-year-old daughter flee the courtroom in tears, Christina Reynolds described how a very upset Elizabeth Edwards stormed away from her husband,...

By Michael T. Dolan When the mood strikes and both the calendar and skies are clear, my children and I venture to the nearby Chester County Airport to catch a glimpse of the airplanes and helicopters in flight. Watching these planes, my mind travels back to my own childhood, a time when a little boy could explore a major airport's terminal and, with nose to window, gaze in wonder as the giant beasts ascended and descended more gracefully than seemed plausible. One moment it was here, a muffled roar later and it was gone, only to touch down in some far off place on the map taped to a child's bedroom wall.

For as long as people have labored in offices, architects have been promising to make the American workplace more bearable. Yet, more often than not, employees spend their days chained to their desks under a nimbus of fluorescent tubes. The only thing recycled is the air, and windows are a mere rumor. People must resort to their computers to find out if it's raining. The green movement has certainly brought some improvements to the world of the cubicle slave. Eager to win the sweepstakes run by the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED program, employers will gladly install energy- and dollar-saving heating and cooling systems.

Harold Roy Collins, 83, of Mount Laurel, a Burlington County farmer and aircraft mechanic who built an airstrip on his family farm, died of prostate cancer on Sunday, Dec. 12, at his daughter's home in Wenonah. After learning to be a mechanic in the military and developing a love of airplanes, Mr. Collins returned to his family's 300-acre farm in Moorestown in 1946 and planned an airstrip and hangar for the middle of the property. By the late 1940s, Mr. Collins had built his runway and hangar, and set up a business where small private aircraft could be flown in. He would do engine work, inspections, and other repairs.

HARRISBURG - Fifteen airports across Pennsylvania are sharing in $1.9 million in mostly state money to upgrade equipment and facilities. Gov. Rendell says $1.7 million in state money comes from the state's jet fuel tax and takes advantage of more than $700,000 in matching funds. An additional $270,000 is coming from the Federal Aviation Administration. The airports will use the money for purposes ranging from runway repaving to fueling facilities. The largest payment is going to the Somerset County Airport, which is getting $330,000 to construct a new T-hangar.

Boeing needed space to set up a new modification facility for its huge Chinook helicopters. The Millville Airport had it: two massive, empty hangars not far from the company's Ridley Park site, where the Chinooks are made, or the Baltimore port, where many are loaded onto ships bound for the Middle East. For the company, the move into Cumberland County, celebrated with a ribbon-cutting and praise from politicians this month, just made sense. For Millville, which has an unemployment rate among the highest in South Jersey, Boeing could be a game-changer.

Two men and their sons died yesterday when the small airplane they were traveling in barreled into some parked cars and crashed into a hangar at New Garden Airport in southern Chester County, authorities said. When fire officials arrived at the airport, just off Route 1 in New Garden Township, the hangar and plane were in flames, said Russ Kilmer, a spokesman for the Avondale Fire Department. The accident occurred about 4:30 p.m. "There's not much left," he said of the plane and the hangar.
