Evening Sun

I was there that night. It was 28 years ago, in the snowy, pre-dawn darkness of March 29, that the Mayflower vans rumbled out of Owings Mills and the Baltimore Colts left for Indianapolis, ripping an entire city's heart out in the process. Just before midnight, we started getting calls on the sports desk at the old Evening Sun that there was unusual activity taking place at the Colts complex. At first we thought it was just a couple of crank calls. But more folks were calling in to report that the complex was lit up, with the sound of trucks echoing everywhere and security guards stopping anyone not authorized to enter.

We've come to the end of the trail, you and I. It's been more than 11 years since I laced them up and asked you to come with me on a hike. I can tell you now, but you probably guessed it: I didn't know where I was going. Not a clue. The outdoors has always been a part of my life no matter whether I was in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New Hampshire or Maryland, where I arrived almost 24 years ago, a brand new wife. It's funny that I landed here. Opal and Ernest Starner, a steelworker at Sparrows Point, raised two girls, Nancy and Betty, in row houses on Conkling Street, then Hudson Street, then a house "in the county" on Fait Avenue, No. 7302.

Lucy C. Acton, a former Evening Sun feature writer who later was editor of Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred, formerly Maryland Horse Magazine, died June 7 of cancer of the appendix at Gilchrist Hospice Care. The Timonium resident was 63. "She was a deliberate person and real dedicated to the Maryland horse racing industry. She really cared and that was her life," said Joseph B. Kelly, retired Washington Star racing editor and turf historian. "It is a very complicated business, and she wrote about and participated in every phase of it," said Mr. Kelly, who had worked with Ms. Acton's father, Wilton Snowden Carter, in the late 1940s when both were young reporters covering racing for The Baltimore Sun and the old Evening Sun. "Lucy was a very quiet person but a real hard worker and a little giant," he said.
