There is nothing like a dream to create the future. Utopia today; flesh and blood tomorrow. -Victor Hugo in "Les Miserables" (1862) A lifetime ago, when she was a girl in North Linthicum, Addie Houston had a talk with her father, a successful engineer and inventor who traveled the world. "Some children aren't as lucky as you are," she remembers him saying. "They have to grow up without parents. It's just something you ought to know." The thought horrified Addie, then 5. She cried herself to sleep, but not before fixing a plan in her mind.

Dorie Trapp started riding horses when she was 5 years old. Her father used to let her ride from the Andover/Linthicum area all the way to Patapsco Valley State Park, on the other side of the Baltimore Washington Parkway.Today, that ride can only be done on weekends; all the cars on the roads makes it too dangerous for horses. And that has created a problem for the Andover Equestrian Center, which is running out of space and trails for people to use."Our land keeps getting smaller and smaller and smaller and now it's just ridiculous," said Trapp, who manages the horse riding park for Anne Arundel County.

Hell, longer than that," says Barry Stahl -- just a guy on the next bar stool milking a Budweiser here at Howard's Subway.
