Although Richard "Moco" Yardley was a contemporary of Edmund Duffy, they might as well have lived on different planets, with Yardley inhabiting the more daft and distant of the two. Born in Baltimore in 1903, he became a hometown institution with his whimsical cartoons.He joined this newspaper in 1923 as an artist-retoucher for The Evening Sun and before the end of the decade had established himself as a backpage local cartoonist. His hilarious insights had Marylanders laughing as frequently as Duffy's angry cartoons moved them to outrage.

In a halting voice, a 24-year-old Elkridge man recalled on Wednesday the sight of an approaching car as he watched a drag race almost two years ago, and how he had not realized until too late that the Chevrolet Impala was headed straight for him and his two friends. "Get out of the way!" Paul A. Duffy remembered screaming to his friends, an admonition that failed to save Mary-Kathryn Abernathy, 21, and Jonathan R. Henderson, 20, from the impact of the speeding Impala. Both died in the June 21, 2009, accident on Interstate 70 in Woodlawn, and Duffy suffered broken ribs and other injuries.

The Carroll Child Care Centers Inc. in Westminster is trying to launch a fundraising campaign, after the United Way of Central Maryland unexpectedly denied the nonprofit day care center a $71,000 grant to serve low-income families. To brainstorm ideas and connect the center with donors, the Community Foundation of Carroll County is sponsoring a brown bag luncheon Friday for the center. "This is doable. It's not like they're trying to raise $1 million," said Audrey Cimino, the foundation's executive director.

"Give me a good cartoonist," H. L. Mencken once wrote, "and I can throw out half the editorial staff." Typical Mencken extravagance, no doubt, but the Bard of Baltimore had some basis for his observation.For among his colleagues at The Sun in the Twenties, Thirties and Forties were Edmund Duffy, a three-time Pulitzer Prize winner who could unmask a Ku Kluxer as a pitiful loser or portray Hitler as a strutting monster, and Richard "Moco" Yardley, whose sunny, whimsical drawings were love notes to the life and lore of Maryland.
