Connie Rhodes had an extra incentive to head to North Carolina from Dundalk this holiday season. Three of her grandchildren got married this year, and for their first Christmas with their spouses, "they wanted Grandma there," the 64-year-old said Wednesday as she waited for a train at Penn Station in Baltimore. "It made me feel good," she said, a neat, snowman-embroidered bag at her feet. From now until New Year's Day, nearly 2 million Marylanders are expected to hit the road, catch flights and settle into train cars en route to holiday destinations, about the same number as made trips last year, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic.

Over a decade ago, Maryland was among a small number of states at the forefront of a bold new effort to make sure that vulnerable families and children had access to services where they live. Maryland's leadership in creating local management boards, or LMBs, helped other states understand that centralized services are less efficient and effective because one size does not fit all. Maryland realized that programs created by people in an office in Baltimore cannot match the needs of families in the hundreds of communities where services are delivered and designed.

A t the Hunt Valley Antiques Show preview party, event committee members Kara Davis and Crickett Woloson sat at a table with their husbands. The baby lamb chops and asparagus spears on their plates were the evening's only hint of spring. A week's worth of snowstorms left huge mounds of snow in the Crowne Plaza Hotel parking lot. Traffic snarls meant longer drive times for many of the evening's guests. But that didn't dampen their enthusiasm once they arrived at the party.

Anthony and Iris Thorpe adopted their first child nearly 16 years ago, a 6-week-old girl whose mother had been given a diagnosis of HIV-positive. With two other children of their own, the couple figured that the infant made their family circle complete. Since then, the circle has ballooned, with 48 foster children, five adoptions and one foster child whose adoption is in the works. The Thorpes, of Port Deposit, have opened their arms to infants and toddlers from Baltimore who make up some of city's most disheartening child statistics: the offspring of drug-afflicted, HIV-infected parents.

Reasonable to limit gun rights of abusers We have no problem with hunters having access to guns, or people owning legal firearms, properly stored, for self-defense. However, all reasonable people surely must agree that there are circumstances that justify the termination of that right ("Added protection," editorial, Feb. 3). And a gun owner with a history of violence against his or her partner falls into this category, even if he or she is not a convicted criminal. Those of us who work with the victims of domestic violence know that the time between the issuing of a temporary and a final protective order is when a victim is at the highest risk of attack by her partner.
