Aileen W. Tobin, who worked for nearly three decades at the Aberdeen Proving Ground's Ordnance Center and School and earlier had conducted research in the field of early reading in children, died Aug. 26 of heart failure at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. The longtime Canton resident was 64. "I told her all the time that she was my yardstick and the finest civilian I've ever worked with in 26 years in the Army. I thought the world of her," said Col. Daniel Riley, who had been brigade commander of the 61st Ordnance Brigade and the Army Ordnance Mechanical Maintenance School at Aberdeen Proving Ground.

The official dedication ceremony for a new interchange at Routes 40 and 715 designed to provide better access to Aberdeen Proving Ground was lauded this week as a triumph of partnerships that have put good public policy ahead of party politics. Indeed, Harford County Executive David R. Craig and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, who are as likely as not to be running against each other in the general election for governor next year, formed something of a mini-mutual appreciation society when they got together for the interchange dedication Monday.

Heavy rains caused a wastewater treatment plant at the Edgewood Area of Aberdeen Proving Ground to release some 250,000 gallons of partially treated sewage into the Bush River on Tuesday, base officials said. Nearly 4 inches of rainfall within 24 hours sent the sewage from secondary clarifier tanks into a chlorine contact chamber and on to the river in Harford County, base spokesman Kelly Luster said. The Bush River, which separates the Edgewood Area from the rest of the Army base, flows into the Chesapeake Bay. It was the largest spill into the river this year, according to the Maryland Department of the Environment database.

Ron A. Szymanski, who was chief software architect at Aberdeen Proving Ground, died July 26 of stomach cancer at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. He was 34. Born and raised in Middlesex, N.J., Mr. Szymanski was a 1996 graduate of Middlesex High School. In 2000, he earned a bachelor's degree in math education from The College of New Jersey in Ewing. In 2004, he earned a master's degree in computer science from Monmouth University in West Long Branch, N.J. "Ron always had a gift for computers, so that led him to accept an opportunity at Fort Monmouth rather than going into teaching," said his wife of nine years, the former Amy Erica Speiser.

Lazzaro Jr., the 41-year-old Army contractor who died Jan. 30 while performing routine maintenance in the manmade tank known as the Super Pond. Lazzaro, a former Marine who lived in Baltimore County, was the first of three divers to die in the Super Pond in less than a month.
