Michelle Carras takes her medication, meditates daily and focuses on her goal of completing the book she is writing by September. Yet in the back of her mind is the anxiety that perhaps this control is an illusion, another stage in her decades-long mental illness. "Even if I talk fast, I worry that I'm getting hyper-manic," she said. Carras says she hopes to share her successes and struggles as a mentor in Anne Arundel County's first peer-to-peer education course for the mentally ill. The nine-week course, which will start next month in Glen Burnie, will be taught by three people who will use their paths to recovery to inspire others.

Joseph A. Farinholt, one of the most highly decorated World War II combat veterans in the nation, who earned four Silver Stars, a Bronze Star, Belgium's Croix de Guerre and a Purple Heart, died of heart failure Tuesday at Carroll County General Hospital. He was 79 and lived in Finksburg. "He was a true World War II hero and an extraordinary soldier," said Col. Howard S. Freedlander, executive officer of the Maryland National Guard. Born and raised in Catonsville where he attended high school, Mr. Farinholt was just shy of his 16th birthday in 1938, when he walked into the 5th Regiment Armory in Baltimore, lied about his age, and enlisted in the Maryland National Guard.

A lifetime ago in war-torn northern Germany, a lone American soldier fired an anti-tank gun at a column of panzers, immobilizing the first tank but not its artillery. The tank returned fire, spraying the soldier with bullets and shrapnel. He was shot 20 times, his right leg crushed, bleeding profusely and useless. That action and what ensued Nov. 26, 1944, could earn Joseph A. Farinholt the Medal of Honor, the highest award for valor in action against an enemy force that can be bestowed upon a member of the armed services of the United States.

When Mary Whitehead heard that two policemen had been murdered on the Eastern Shore recently, she experienced a familiar feeling: hopelessness. Francis M. Zito, the man charged in the killings, suffers from schizophrenia. For nearly 30 years, Whitehead has struggled to take care of her 60-year-old sister, who also suffers from the brain disorder that can lead to hallucinations and paranoid delusions. Whitehead lives with the fear that her sister could also turn violent. Zito's high-profile case underscores the difficulties faced by thousands of relatives of the mentally ill, many of whom worry that tragedy could be just around the corner.

At the height of World War II, a young Army sergeant was promised a battlefield commission. Two days later, he was severely wounded. For the next few years, he recovered, and an officer's insignia became a distant memory. Then came marriage, four children and decades of work on the family's three Carroll County farms. That the promotion has come 56 years after the promise, when he is 77, in no way diminishes the honor for Joseph A. Farinholt. The decorated veteran has pinned silver lieutenant's bars to his military cap and placed the notification of his promotion among an array of combat service awards at his Finksburg home.

According to Army regulations, a Silver Star -- one of the military's highest honors -- is awarded to a "person who is cited for gallantry in action against an enemy of the United States." But World War II veteran Joseph Farinholt, a wiry 77-year-old with little patience for military-speak, translates the requirements this way: "Be as crazy as hell." Farinholt should know. He was awarded the Silver Star four times during World War II -- the only soldier to do so, local veterans groups believe.
