I'm not sure what went on when the Cub Scouts visited the firehouse. All I know is that soon after our scout came home, I found myself wobbling atop the stepladder, poking smoke detectors.I was headed toward the supper table when the scout, fresh from the firehouse and still wearing his uniform, presented me with a list of matters that needed immediate attention.He reported we had to test our smoke detectors. And we had to have an escape plan, ways to get out of the house in the event of a fire.

The fire just would not go out. Howard County Engine 31 rolled up to the minivan-turned-inferno just before 5 p.m. Saturday to find the mangled vehicle spewing blankets of black diesel smoke. Four firefighters hopped off their engine, expertly unfurled a hose, attached it to a fire hydrant, and carefully but confidently approached the blaze. As they sprayed the wreck, the black smoke changed to pillows of white and the orange flames hunkered down. Satisfied, the firefighters backed away.

PREPARING FOR a new school year is not supposed to be like this. The days leading up to the opening of classes should be a time for students and parents to think about new supplies, new teachers, new clothes, fresh optimism. It's still that way, but not entirely. Especially since the shooting at a Colorado high school last spring, the emphasis is on making students feel safe. Along with fire drills come survival drills and other security measures.

The dismantling of a 1910 dairy barn in Ellicott City has raised preservationists' concerns about the county's ability to protect historic buildings. Their specific worry is not the demolished wooden barn, but the fate of two other 19th-century stone buildings in the same cluster of Mount Hebron farm structures, said Mary Catherine Cochran, president of Preservation Howard County. One is a large barn thought once to have served as slave quarters, and the second is a smaller Civil War-era tenant house on the 8-acre property.
