Bill Donovan no longer has to worry about his horse missing the Preakness field for want of enough earnings."We're in, definitely," the trainer of Dash For Dotty said yesterday morning. "I knew it when they brought over my Preakness jackets."Finally, Dash For Dotty is getting some good fortune after a disappointment in the Blue Grass Stakes and a controversy that kept the gelding out of the Federico Tesio Stakes at Pimlico Race Course, the major prep for the Preakness.Donovan could find easier pickings on the 3-year-old schedule, but the horse's owner, Henry Rosenberg Jr., chairman of the board of Crown Central Petroleum, wanted to take a shot at his hometown's biggest race.

I wanted to thank the North County News and Pat Van den Beemt for the wonderful article she wrote about Caring for Kids of Kenya. I would also like to thank Dotty and Jeffrey Pitts who have sponsored Justin through his high school years and now in college. Dotty was actually the one who spotted Justin on my first visit to an orphanage. She was so taken with the children she has returned to Kenya twice to visit the orphanage. Caring for Kids has been very lucky to have such generous sponsors helping to keep many orphans in school and giving these children who have lost everything a reason to live.

The Heimert family would like to thank members of the community for their kind expressions of sympathy on our recent loss. Dotti was my wife, my life and my hero, and the celebration of her work at the Academy of Arts in Easton Dec. 10 was an especially wonderful tribute. Our sincere gratitude goes out to all who made it possible and had a hand in its success - the arrangement and hanging of the art pieces, the food and the warmth that permeated the academy that afternoon. The event is yet another reminder of how fortunate we are to belong to such a generous community.

There are a lot of bowling balls with lot of different names on the market, but a Dotty ball?"The Dotty ball got its name from my mom, Dotty Richard," said Mather. "When she got a strike with a really, really bad ball, everybody would holler, "Dotty ball, Dotty ball."Still, Mather had a great night in the Thursday All-Star League at Westminster Thunderhead Lanes.

This is the hometown horse, the one Baltimore likes to call its own. There's an immense measure of pride, personal and provincial, exuded by Henry Rosenberg, who is hoping for a kind of happiness he has not even remotely experienced. The smile on his face carries all the anticipated pleasure of a man involved in a Preakness dream that's within a mile and three-sixteenths distance of reality.Racing is a fun game that breaks more hearts than that fictitious, flirtatious girl who is merely a picture on a billboard.

Dorothy "Dottie" Jones was on her fifth job in six years that spring day in 1960 when she rode the elevator up to the 28th floor of the Matheson Building on Light Street and sat down behind her typewriter. The new assistant at T. Rowe Price & Associates in Baltimore was just 24 years old and keen to use the steno and shorthand skills she'd learned in night school to type her bosses' letters, keep track of client accounts and handle other paperwork. But she knew nothing about how financial firms worked.

After coping nearly all of her 81 years without an air conditioner, Dotty Rock knows that surviving a Baltimore summer requires a certain routine. Before bedtime, the box fan at the base of her bed must be positioned just so, circulating the maximum amount of air. She leaves only for vital appointments, certain that her basement apartment in Middle River is cooler than the stifling outdoors. On Mondays, after singing practice at the John Booth Senior Center in Highlandtown, the best way to beat the heat is with an ice-cold can of Milwaukee's Best.
