Cherry Hill activist Cleoda Walker says she was at home Friday evening when a divine presence told her to step outside. Lying on the sidewalk outside was 16-month-old Carter Scott, shot in the leg during what police believe was a targeted attack on his father.

Inside a classroom at Howard Community College's new health sciences building are computerized mannequin patients, a replica ambulance and other devices that place students in simulated life-and-death situations. The facilities are part of the school's emergency medical service/paramedic program, which trains students to respond to the situations they'll face on emergency calls. But for Cory Boone and Nick Frazier, there's nothing like the real thing. They would know. Early this year, the Ellicott City residents, both students in the program, applied the skills they learned in class and while volunteering with the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue to assist victims of cardiac arrest.

I am happy to say that we were able to fulfill that goal for the U.S. Marine Corps' Reserves Toys for Tots Foundation so that hundreds of boys and girls could wake up on Christmas morning and have a brand new toy under their Christmas tree.

Sometime this year, the BWI Marshall Airport fire and rescue department will begin billing people for ambulance rides to the hospital.
