William Bowling watched from two seats away as Dan Clark got out of his seat and walked into the aisle of M&T Bank Stadium's Section 521 during the Ravens game Sunday. Bowling said he was close enough to reach out and grab him - and he would have, if he had known what was going to happen next. Clark, 48, took a step, dropped the phone in his hand and fell down the flight of steps in the stadium's upper deck during the Ravens game against the New York Jets, turning and hitting the back of his head on the platform at the bottom of the section, Bowling said.

While rail-passenger service ended in 1950, freight trains continued to run over the same tracks for several more years.Today, sleek light-rail trains transporting residents to the city wind their way along the same path as the old commuter line, which was known affectionately as "Bumble & Amble."

In March 1956, the small community of Ferndale still had enough rural flavor that James Lacy could fish and hunt there after his family moved to the Glen Burnie subdivision from Baltimore. Lacy, now 65, said it wasn't long before the neighborhood began to grow. Today, Ferndale is an established suburban community with few vacant lots and steady traffic along its main artery, Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard. Lacy lives within blocks of his parents' home, where his brother lives now. Many of the friends he went to school with also settled in the area.

For Sarah Wagner, her last year at her beloved Ferndale Elementary School became the last for the whole school. In 2003, the school closed because of low enrollment. "It was a sad year," said Wagner, now a sophomore at Annapolis Area Christian School. "The whole time I was there, we were just fighting to keep it open." Those sad feelings were swept away, she said, when she saw her former elementary school transformed into Anne Arundel County's first preschool and kindergarten center, according to school officials.
