We have a winner. Don't bother to hold your cards, it's positively confirmed: Smoke-free bingo at the Gamber and Community Fire Hall.That's one small breath for man, one giant breather for mankind.The decision to ban smoking at all events held at the volunteer fire company's building risks losing some good bingo customers. Many regular players are notorious for compulsively puffing away as they intently scan their cards looking for a matching number to mark. And weekly bingo games, which can fill the hall to its 300-person capacity, are a financial foundation of the Gamber fire company, nay, of many fire companies.

Harry Reese Gamber, a high school dropout who became a successful businessman specializing in drywall and painting, died Sunday of pancreatic cancer at Gilchrist Hospice in Towson. The Owings Mills resident, who had lived in Catonsville for many years, was 85. The son of an auto mechanic and a homemaker, Harry Reese Gamber was born in a home in Westminster that is now Maggie's Restaurant. His great-grandfather, William Snyder Gamber, who was a Civil War veteran, served as postmaster from 1881 to 1903 of the Carroll County village that was named for him. In 1930, Mr. Gamber, who was known as Reese, was struck by an automobile that left him with serious nerve damage and a permanently injured right arm. Numerous hospitalizations left him behind in school, and when he was 13, he dropped out. Unable to enlist for the service because of his arm, Mr. Gamber worked for the Red Cross during World War II. From 1945 to 1948, he worked a variety of construction jobs, including driving a cement mixer for the Harry T. Campbell Co., and later rose to become a foreman.

As a child, Mickey Lippy dreamed of becoming a rescuer and pretended to fight fires with a vacuum cleaner hose and transport victims on an old TV stand that doubled as a makeshift gurney. The Carroll County resident, who realized that aspiration by growing up to become a state police flight paramedic, lost his life in a medevac helicopter crash last weekend in Prince George's County. The 34-year-old trooper's lifelong desire to help others was remembered yesterday during a funeral service in Gamber attended by family and friends, and hundreds of fire, police and emergency rescue personnel.

The Memorial Day weekend starts early in Carroll County now that the Gamber & Community Fire Company carnival runs eight days, starting Saturday, and continuing through June 2. Last year, Gamber opened the Saturday before Memorial Day and was the first carnival to be held on a Sunday. The extra two days were so successful that the fire company is doing it again, said Jeannie Green of the carnival committee. The only restriction for holding the carnival on Sunday is that no gambling is allowed, Gamber officials said.

To hear Chuck Gamber tell it, he's not just creating elaborate scenes and symbols on trucks. He's performing a public service. "If a guy's got...an ugly truck, if you can put some art work on it and make it pretty, now people will compliment him, and he'll drive better and he'll be happy with what he's doing," said Gamber, sitting on a stool in his workshop next to a 38-foot antique tanker truck in need of lettering. Gamber is the owner of Jack of Arts, a company that specializes in painting custom images on vehicles.
