When the debilitating cell disease that had plagued their daughter since birth began last year to stop her heart for several minutes at a time, Dawn and Stephen Murphy turned to home hospice care. Hospice helped with both the practical and emotional aspects of caring for a 6-year-old child with a terminal illness. Hospice nurses made sure Kayla was comfortable in her Havre de Grace home. Counselors helped the parents cope with the possibility of death. "We don't want her to be in a sterile hospital environment," said Kayla's mom, Dawn.

LACROSSE, EVEN the way girls and women play it now, is an in-your-face, often rough, sport. So, if you were asked in a game of word association what lacrosse might pair with, hospice isn't likely to be the first word that flashes to mind. But the two words will be associated Saturday, rain gods permitting, in a new girls lacrosse tournament in Columbia. Organizers hope it will become an annual charity event. The first Howard County Lax Fest will benefit Hospice of Howard County, one of those community-support organizations you don't hear much about until you need the services it provides, which in the case of hospice means the terminally ill and their families.

YOU COULD SAY John Sater's work followed him home to Union Bridge. Parked in Sater's driveway is a 1947 Baltimore Transit bus. But instead of carrying people from one place to another, the vehicle served as the remote unit for WMAR television station, where Sater worked as an electronics technician. His interest in electronics goes back to his high school years. He attended the Boys Vocational School, where he took up machine shop practice in downtown Baltimore from 1936 to 1939. "While I was there, I took a correspondence course in radio and electronics," Sater said.
