When a Massachusetts family was found stranded on the side of a Howard County road two weeks ago with no money and no food, local police were called -- and so was Dorothy Moore.From her home in Columbia's Long Reach village, the executive director of the Community Action Council made arrangements that night to ensure that the family was fed and had transportation back to Massachusetts.Her work in such situations over the past 26 years has earned her this year's Living the Dream award from the Howard County Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Commission.

Dorothy L. Moore, a feisty, passionate advocate for Howard County's poor over a 36-year career, will retire as director of the county's anti-poverty agency March 31, she said yesterday. "The lady's a legend," said County Executive James N. Robey, another career public servant and Howard County native. "She is ruthless when it comes to serving her customers, her clients. She's one of the strongest advocates I've ever seen for any cause." Retirement is a move the 18-year Community Action Council director has thought about for several years, and one she has frequently put off. But no more, she said.

Wisdom says that most of us will come upon at least one crossroads in life. For Dorothy Moore -- Dottie to her friends -- the crossroads came in threes.The first was nearly 20 years ago, when her 19-year-old son was beaten to death outside the Wilde Lake Interfaith Center. Consumed by grief, she had nothing left but rage for the man who killed her son. She sat in the courtroom during his trial and found herself at a second crossroads, when she realized that her son's assailant also had a mother and father, grieving over what had happened.
