Lucille Gorham remembers a quiet, "nerdy" scientist who became a regular presence in her East Baltimore neighborhood, walking down dangerous streets and alleys as if he didn't know better. "He was very easy to talk to, didn't mind being in the neighborhood," said Gorham, former president of the Middle East Community Organization. "He talked like I talk, didn't talk with a lot of professional language I didn't understand." The scientist was Mark Farfel, the public health researcher who spearheaded a study eight years ago to see if composted sludge spread on inner-city yards could reduce the lead hazard in soil.

Monae Gorham's life was forever changed by one stray bullet fired Nov. 28, 1999. She was celebrating her best friend's Sweet 16 birthday at anAmerican Legion Hall in West Baltimore. Some boys started fighting, and a close friend of hers pulled out a gun and shot into a crowd. Gorham tried to pull one of the boys out of the line of fire, but a bullet tore through her neck, leaving her without the use of her arms and legs. After eight years of enduring numerous health complications, living in a wheelchair as a quadriplegic and using a breathing tube, Gorham died early Thursday at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. -- Adore the Gold is ready to be adored. Trainer Michael Gorham said the 3-year-old Kentucky-bred sired by Formal Gold is ready to take on the favorites one more time today in the Grade I, $1 million Florida Derby. Gorham's colt faced Scat Daddy, Stormello and Nobiz Like Shobiz in the Fountain of Youth Stakes earlier this month and was beaten by just one length, despite an outside post and a tiring trip. "I think he'll run big," said Gorham, who keeps a dozen horses at Laurel Park and is a familiar name to Maryland horsemen.
