Joe DeFilippo felt so moved reading about slain Baltimore Civil Rights worker William Lewis Moore that he wrote a song about the postal worker who was killed 50 years ago in Alabama. DeFilippo, a 36-year Baltimore County Public Schools teacher, felt inspired to write "400 miles" about Moore after reading the June 2 story  in The Baltimore Sun about Moore's unsolved murder. Moore, 35, was killed on April 23, 1963, while on a one-man Civil Rights demonstration where he set out to walk from Chattanooga, Tenn., to Jackson, Miss., to hand deliver a letter to the governor of Mississippi asking him to reverse his stance on segregation.

Community support is vital to volunteer fire departments in rural America. Most small communities do not receive enough funding for fire protection services, but still experience the same emergencies found in a big city. Thanks to one local farm family and America's Farmers Grow Communities, the Level Volunteer Fire Company recently received some much needed support. Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, gives farmers the opportunity to win $2,500 for their favorite local nonprofit organizations.

The first chess player to arrive, bright-eyed Quentin R. Moore, came from Centreville, Va., to Fells Point yesterday to match wits in an afternoon tournament against a dozen older opponents in the game of kings. At 10, Quentin was the budding player in the field, and while he didn't win, he didn't do half-badly either. The highest-ranked player his age in Virginia, he beat electrical engineer Hayes E. Bowling, 25, a player with a U.S. Chess Federation rating of 1869. Even though Quentin's official rating is just beginning to break into the above-average 1500s, he never wavered from his intense gaze or game yesterday at Fells Point Chess, a small shop at 1717 Aliceanna St. "I came all the way to Baltimore to play," Quentin said.
