The boy did everything the other kids did, and nobody made fun of him.Bullinger, 51, didn't realize that his neighbor was mildly retarded until he began working with people like him. Indirectly, the youthful experience may have shaped Bullinger's professional life as an advocate for the disabled and director of employment services for the Baltimore Association...

MOST OF Baltimore's historic Seton Institute was torn down years ago to make way for a business park, but a remnant of it has just reopened for a new use. An old gymnasium that was added in the 1960s to the institute - a hospital run by the Sisters of Charity - has been recycled as part of a $2.9 million employment center for the Baltimore Association for Retarded Citizens (BARC). Representatives from the nonprofit agency joined state Comptroller William Donald Schaefer, former Baltimore County Executive Dennis F. Rasmussen and other dignitaries this month to dedicate the center, which occupies an 8-acre parcel in the Seton Business Park.

Pet lovers around the country tune in to the PBS series, “Shelter Me,” which celebrates shelter pets with uplifting stories about them. Soon, the series will feature homeless dogs and cats in Baltimore. On Tuesday, June 24, Aimee Sadler, a nationally recognized animal trainer specializing in behavioral problems, will be at Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) hosting a doggie playdate, and a film crew will document the day for a future episode of the show. Sadler will work with shelter staff members on the best ways to hold playdates between their dogs, who often don't know each other very well, if at all. The goal is to reduce frustration for both animals and people and increase the happiness quotient for everyone.

CYNTHIA GOES to her job at Fort Meade every day, as do thousands of others. But few of them have had to recover from a childhood as Dickensian as Cynthia's. At the age of 6, she was taken from her mother and institutionalized at the Rosewood Center for the developmentally disabled. She lived there for 13 years and was then shuttled among five foster families. At 21, when the state was no longer responsible for her care, she was left to her own devices. But with the assistance of the Baltimore Association for Retarded Citizens Inc. she moved into a group residence for developmentally disabled adults and began an intensive vocational training program.

How do you get to Rock and Roll Heaven? For some 50 Righteous Brothers fans, heaven was as close as the Tremont Plaza Hotel. The dulcet-toned duo, in town for a concert at Pier 6, met with those fans at a reception for the benefit of the Baltimore Association for retared Citizens. As Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield entered the banquet room, an "Ebb Tide" of memories came flooding back to their followers. "Anyone who grew up in the 60's stood in front of the mirror--at some point--and used a hairbrush as a microphone to sing "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'," said guest Debbie Hood.

The Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) is currently treating a 3-year-old mixed breed dog who appears to be the victim of severe abuse. Sophia was brought to the shelter last week by city animal control officers with multiple scars on her face and head and with no lower jaw. She is also missing upper teeth. BARCS officials said the wounds on her face looked to be bite marks. Despite her extensive injuries and clearly traumatic past, Sophia is loving and sweet and still trusts humans, they said.

* UPDATE on Deacon, the dumped puppy A 6-month-old puppy wound up at the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) yesterday after she was dumped in a city alley, and now the shelter and animal control officers want to know who left her there. Named Deacon, the puppy was found by a good Samaritan in an alley behind Deacon Hill Court in the Brooklyn neighborhood. The person who found her said the pup was friendly and tried to get up, but was too weak to move on her own and must have been left there earlier that day. She had signs of malnutrition, an extreme case of mange that's caused lesions all over her body, and sepsis.

Members of the city's Board of Estimates chastised Baltimore Development Corp. over an agreement to pay a downtown real estate developer more than double the standard real estate commission for selling a city property. The five-member estimates board agreed Wednesday to pay Otis Warren/Svatos Real Estate Resources $46,063 for its work in selling 7 acres at Seton Business Park to the Baltimore Association of Retarded Citizens (BARC). City Solicitor Thurman Zollicoffer challenged the payment because BDC agreed to pay the commission on the asking price of the property rather than on the sale price.

To keep its animals safe, the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) moved all of its dogs and cats to a temporary home at 1st Mariner Arena on Monday morning. Because the shelter lies in a flood-prone part of South Baltimore, BARCS convened a team of volunteers for the emergency evacuation. In a matter of hours, they safely moved more than 100 cats and nearly that many dogs. The animals will ride out the storm at the arena.
