Samantha Gorsuch's 5-year-old boy has talked nonstop about the talking dump truck he expects from Santa. But the single mother of two, who works two jobs, could not afford to buy the $60 toy on her own. She found it, with batteries included, at the Baltimore County Department of Social Services' annual toy giveaway. "Look, it eats cars," said Gorsuch, who had waited in line for nearly an hour in bitter cold Monday, before the store opened at an Essex church. "It's just what my son wanted and it will mean a better Christmas for him. " Like nearly 1,000 income-eligible families in the county with a total of 3,000 children, Gorsuch was mailed an invitation to shop at the store.

The most recent addition to the list of Harford County landmarks won its place for its simplicity, history and role in the life of its community. Asbury Methodist Episcopal Church was founded in 1838 on donated ground that was owned by former slaves. Named for the street in Churchville where it was built, the parish was, for much of its history, the only church in the county where African-Americans were invited to worship. "My family gave the land and helped build the church," said the Rev. Lewis Smith, a retired Methodist minister.

They posed on the church steps and followed a bagpiper to a social in the church hall, which was filled with parish memorabilia.
