Baltimore Fire Chief James S. Clack announced Friday that he will step down, ending a five-year tenure in which he oversaw historic lows in fire deaths but implemented budget cuts that critics said compromised safety. Clack, 52, the first chief hired from outside the department's ranks, said in an interview that he is resigning in July to be closer to family in Minnesota. He said this year's budget is the first he's had without substantial cuts, and he wants to leave on a high note.

Anne Arundel County Police Chief Kevin Davis has appointed an assistant chief and a civilian chief of staff after being granted permission to do so by the County Council. In October, the council approved a bill to give the police chief more leeway in hiring his top staff. The bill became effective Thursday, and Davis immediately announced the hires - both having connections to the Prince George's County Police Department where Davis previously worked. Bill Lowry, who worked as a police officer for Prince George's for decades, is the new Anne Arundel assistant chief.

From this day forward, Assistant Chief Gary Frederick's only use for a hose may likely entail watering his front lawn. For Frederick, 59, today is the first day of his retirement from the Baltimore City Fire Department after 37 years of service. "This is really the only job I've ever had," says Frederick, who lives in the Lauraville community. He joined the Fire Department in 1963, as soon as he met its age requirement of 21. Battalion Chief Hector Torres, a Fire Department spokesman, said that as a youth, Frederick was known as a "house cat," who hung around the stationhouse and ran errands for firefighters.

Mayor Martin O'Malley said yesterday that he is close to naming a fire chief to replace Carl E. McDonald, a 36-year veteran who is retiring today after a year as acting chief. "The search is going fine. We'll have a permanent chief soon," O'Malley said, even as union officials were criticizing the yearlong search to replace Herman Williams Jr., who retired in February last year after running the Fire Department for nine years. O'Malley, who has conducted two nationwide searches and interviewed people inside and outside the department, said he is taking time to "find the right person for the job."

Carroll County's assistant superintendent of administration, Vernon F. Smith Jr., will retire this summer after 30 years as a teacher and administrator in county schools. As director of school support services and then an assistant superintendent, Smith saw the school system through its most aggressive and productive construction era, building 11 schools in 14 years. But the building campaign also brought contention, as a Carroll County grand jury and a team of attorneys and former FBI agents hired by the school board investigated botched construction projects and alleged mismanagement in the school system.
