Motorists driving along Bellona Avenue through Ruxton can catch a glimpse of a 19th- century gray frame Gothic Revival church with tall green shutters sitting on a slight, tree-capped hill above the light rail tracks. What they're looking at is St. John's African Methodist Episcopal Church, with its one-floor fieldstone parsonage nearby. Surrounding the buildings is a graveyard that constitutes the final resting place of generations of the Scott family from Bare Hills, who have been involved with the historic church since its founding by free blacks in 1833.

STANDING on the bridge of the TLI Aquila, Capt. Adelbert Hansen reaches into his faded shirt pocket and pulls out a small dosimeter, a penlight-shaped device every crew member carries to monitor their exposure to radiation from the ship's uranium-laden cargo. Pointed toward the Baltimore skyline, the device gives a reading of less than one microsievert - a standard unit of measure that represents a tiny fraction of the level considered safe by government standards. "See, I don't worry," Hansen said, referring to the 48-inch diameter cylinders filled with uranium that the ship specializes in transporting.

Aquila Scott, who passed away while in the church below, to join the church above. March 28th 1858. Aged 74 years."Mr. Scott, who died in his pulpit at St. John's Church, Ruxton, and is buried in his own backyard, was a founding father in every sense of the word. He had a dozen children, founded the church in 1833, and established Bare Hills, one of Baltimore County's oldest black enclaves.

Bare Hills is one of those Falls Road neighborhoods that motorists, if not careful, can enter and exit within two blinks of an eye, and its residents seem perfectly happy with that.Bare Hills, which dates to the 1830s and has one of Baltimore County's oldest African-American enclaves, is roughly defined on the west by Clarkview Road, on the north and east by Robert E. Lee Park and on the south by Hollins Lane."This is a neighborhood that resists being trendy, and we wish to remain undiscovered," said Sarah Fenno Lord, a writer and neighborhood activist who has lived in the area since 1972.

It's hard not to stare. The piece of meat is thick as a Baltimore phone book, wide as a pie tin and shaped like a human heart. It's got a presence on the dinner plate, on the table, perhaps even the room. It challenges: Go ahead, eat, take your best shot. Some people have dogs that don't weigh this much.You need a moment to absorb the 3-pound mass of this Porterhouse steak, not to mention the notion that soon this steak will be consumed and followed by another just like it. Chew on this thought: two 48-ounce steaks eaten in one sitting by a man not playing in the National Football League.
