Early last year a woman was driving through Howard County, trying to escape her abusive husband, who was following her, honking his car's horn, flashing its lights and screaming. She picked up her cellular phone and called the Domestic Violence Center of Howard County, where counselors gave her directions to a local police station and safety. It is an example of how powerful and helpful a cellular phone can be, domestic violence experts and authorities say.

IT WOULD BE easy to forget that affluent Howard County has needs. But as invisible as those needs may be in one of the nation's wealthiest counties, families here depend on the generosity that Howard County shows each year through contributions to the United Way of Central Maryland.There are families who fear, as winter approaches, the choice between whether they will have heat or something to eat: That is when Dorothy Moore and her Howard County Community Action Council make sure they have both.
