HANCOCK -- Tammy Spiker has a heart-shaped hole in her tooth. It's badly infected and hurts. Desperate, unable to afford the root canal and crown she needs, the 25-year-old single mother drives to this Washington County town to see a dentist who can offer a quick, cheap cure. Her fiance holds Spiker's hand as he tells Dr. Robert M. Johnson what she wants: "Yank it out, please." And in a matter of minutes, Johnson does just that. It's his specialty.

Isaac Bennett Hancock spent years on the streets, dividing his time between two East Baltimore homeless shelters, a bottle of Scotch in one pocket and paperback books about the Wild West in the other.It was a way of life the 53-year-old man chose and, his friends say, he could take care of himself. When the weather got too cold to stay outside, when icy winds blew down the alleys and park benches became frigid slabs, Ike Hancock always knew enough to get himself to a shelter.But on Wednesday night as temperatures dipped into the low 20s, Mr. Hancock -- perhaps none the better from a day of heavy drinking -- chose to rest for the night in a lot in the rear of the 1200 block of East Fayette Street.
