Instead of celebrating their first days of summer vacation on the beach, Chris Bowerman and Nick Venzke have had their noses in the books and their heads under the hood. Both recent Eastern Technical High School graduates have been meeting with their automotive tech teacher to practice for the Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills national competition this month. The two-student team won the state level of the competition April 22, giving Eastern Technical School two straight wins there. For the contest, the students had 90 minutes to diagnose a series of bugs placed in a car. Since their triumph, Middle River residents Bowerman and Venzke have met in their classroom to go through car manuals and anticipate problems they might see in the national competition June 27 in Dearborn, Mich.

Several weeks ago, Army Spc. Casey W. Nash came home on leave from Iraq to visit his family in Essex and Middle River. He watched sports with his father, worked on his sister's car and drove his beloved red-and-white Chevrolet S-10 Xtreme pickup truck. A quiet man, the 22-year-old said little about his time in the combat zone, but he did make this point: Six months into his second tour of duty in Iraq, he was ready to leave the Army and return home for good. That visit was the last time his family saw him. On Friday, Specialist Nash and two other soldiers were killed in Tahir, Iraq, by an improvised explosive device.

Tell me where do you go when you got no dough, "There must be a way out of here. "But I've got to find some peace of mind, "There must be a place that I can find." -- Garnet Mimms and the EnchantersOn the sidewalk near Big Boyz Bail Bonds and the liquor store, a few men stand in a splash of sunlight and speak in reverent tones of the high school kid everyone calls "Dawg."It's a nearly discarded neighborhood, a tiny chunk of Middle River in eastern Baltimore County, the kind of place where police removed two public telephones because dopers were using them to run their packages.
