Three passersby gave chase, including a Baltimore police officer, who retrieved the hat and presented it intact to the little girl's parents, Adam and Holly Rose of Pasadena.

For about 17 hours yesterday, truck driver Bob Johnson and two co-workers sat on a jersey barrier just north of the city limits on Interstate 95 and entertained themselves by watching traffic go by. A couple of trucks blew out tires. An accident on the northbound side tied up traffic. And every so often, a car would get a little too close to the shoulder where the crew stood and knock over the cones Johnson had set up to alert travelers of their parked vehicles. "That was pretty much the highlight of the day," he said.

ANNAPOLIS Bay Bridge repairs nearing end, officials say The westbound center lane of the Bay Bridge should be open within a month after being closed since early this year, according to state officials. "Our goal to get off the Bay Bridge before Memorial Day weekend definitely is in sight," said Robert L. Flanagan, the state's transportation secretary, in a statement. The westbound lane has been closed since Jan. 3, when workers began pouring more than 7,000 feet of concrete. The repairs were necessary because of widespread cracking, which was the result of shoddy work, officials said.
