Margaret Pearson doesn't ask the Almighty why violence stole two of her children. "I never ask God that," she said. "Never. " She relied on her faith to endure the murder of her daughter, who was strangled in a hospital room in 1982 while she was being treated for a rare illness that had stolen her basic motor skills. And when her son died last October from injuries he suffered during a robbery in West Baltimore, Pearson turned to God again. Thirty-one years separate the crimes.

Nothing or no one can prepare you for the moment your life will change forever. For me, that moment occurred May 10, 2004 ... about a week after I turned 31 ... a month before I was to be married. I had gone to the emergency room three days before. My gastrointestinal doctor had met me there. I had been having stomach pains, diarrhea and constipation and was throwing up. I'd lost weight and was anemic. I'd been having these symptoms off and on for about six months. My doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong.

He had run from a secured hospital room and a guard had shot him three times in the back.At the trial, Mr. Allen had offered a justification for his flight.

Although no battles were fought in Laurel during the Civil War, the city's railroad was a strategic resource for the Union Army, numerous units of Union soldiers were stationed here and the military's presence added a different element to the city's social and cultural landscapes. A new yearlong exhibit, "Stationed in Laurel: Our Civil War Story," opened Sunday Feb. 3 at the Laurel Museum and captures that segment of Laurel's history. In September, a mini-exhibit was displayed at the museum that gave a partial account of Laurel's Civil War past.

Even as epidemiologists worry about a shrinking arsenal of antibiotics to fight potentially deadly drug-resistant bacteria, researchers at Johns Hopkins Hospital are betting on another weapon to prevent infections: robots. It sounds more futuristic than it looks: The hospital uses "robot" devices resembling portable air-conditioning units to saturate the air in sealed rooms with hydrogen peroxide, disinfecting all surfaces before converting the potent mist into water vapor. The technology has been used at the hospital more than 4,000 times over the past five years, with promising results.

Julie McAllister was feeling serene as she lounged in her room with the window view, enjoying a quiet, kid-free afternoon. It was almost as if she were on vacation. But in fact the 37-year-old from Owings Mills had just delivered an 8-pound baby girl that morning and was recovering in a hospital room at Greater Baltimore Medical Center in Towson. She planned to spend the rest of the day napping, lounging and perhaps catching a show on the flat-screen television. And of course she was going to get to know her new daughter, Elizabeth, who at the moment was at the hospital nursery.

To that end, the group hosted a meeting Monday night at the Hawthorne Community Center featuring the county's top medical officials.
