Anita Rozenel didn't think anyone would listen to her story, of the sweet kindergartner who was diagnosed with kidney cancer on the third day of school, of the classmates who wanted to do everything they could to help, of the organization she wanted to start to raise money for the hospital that cared for her pupil. So in 1994, two years after the kindergartner, Amanda Bradel, succumbed to her illness, a year after the first big fund-raiser, called Hop for Hopkins, was held in Amanda's memory at Hernwood Elementary School, music teacher Rozenel found herself speaking to hundreds of Baltimore County principals and administrators.

TAKING CARE of the environment has become a family affair for the Slaytons. Working through Howard County's Adopt A Road program, the Clarksville family keeps Simpson Road free of litter and other debris. The road runs behind Jeff Slayton's home in Ashleigh Knolls. "The street was always a mess because of construction garbage," Slayton said. "I would stop while driving, pick up the trash and put it in my trunk." About 1 1/2 years ago, Jeff decided to formalize his cleanup efforts and involve his family by joining the county's Adopt A Road program, in which individuals, families or groups commit to clean up a road at least four times a year.

Despite assurances to the contrary, the office that monitors conditions in state Department of Juvenile Services facilities is a shadow of its former self, in size and authority. When it reconvenes next month, the General Assembly must restore the presence and the power of the office of the independent juvenile justice monitor by overriding Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s veto of a bill to house it in the attorney general's office. In its scramble to re-create its Office of Children, Youth and Families, whose charter expired this year, the administration said it would keep intact - and autonomous - the monitors' department, the only independent group that is allowed regular access to juvenile facilities.

Ali Barbieri occupies just a sliver of her grown-up bed at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center, her 5-month-old legs suspended in a miniature traction rig that holds in place the hips she dislocated at birth. Most days Ali's mother, Natalia, sits with her all day, caressing her, distracting her with the toys that share her bed, trying to introduce her to solid foods. Barbieri knows just how well her daughter is sleeping, eating and feeling. So it makes sense to involve her in Ali's care - and to have her on hand when the doctors do their early-morning rounds.

WASHINGTON -- Chaos in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the aftermath of genocide in Rwanda have overshadowed the acute refugee crisis that still plagues tiny, war-torn Burundi. Decades of conflict in this east African nation have left hundreds of thousands homeless and divided a once-peaceful population along dangerous ethnic lines. Yet Burundi's plight largely has been forgotten as international outrage focuses on the war over diamonds and oil reserves in neighboring Congo. Burundi, which is about the size of Maryland, has been riven by inter-ethnic conflict since its independence in 1962 from a Belgian-administered U.N. trusteeship, a legacy of a colonial political strategy that polarized its two main ethnic groups.
