Baltimore County police say a Middle River resident acted quickly to stop a gunman during a recent home invasion. Police said four people forced open a door to the house, in the 100 block of Alberge Lane, at around 12:30 a.m. Feb. 21. One would-be robber armed with a single-barrel rifle, confronted an occupant, police said. The resident disarmed the suspect by throwing cold cooking oil on him. Two other residents came to aide of the first, and together they were able to detain two of the suspects, police said.

25 years ago: Police dog officer Robinson asked for and got permission to buy a fingerprinting kit for under $75. His request that the town send him to canine school in Baltimore County for 14 weeks with his 9-month-old dog received mixed reaction. Officer Robinson said Baltimore County would provide the training free of charge. Insurance would be $10-$12 a year and equipment such as collars and leashes would run another $35. A cage in the police car could run between $50 and $250. Councilman Raver said that he liked the idea of a police dog for Hampstead but that if the town bore the expense of training the animal, the town should own the dog. The council agreed that a dog would "beef up" the town force a lot cheaper than another man and should help "clean up a lot of these punks in town."

More than 600 cars brought unwanted household items and other recyclables to the second Clear Your Clutter Day held Saturday at Harford Community College. "We had an overwhelming response with 623 cars coming through," Nettie Owens, the owner of Sappari Solutions and the event's organizer, wrote in an e-mail thanking those who participated. The four-hour event was held in one of the HCC parking lots. "That does not include the many cars who got in line, waited an hour and decided to move on before actually coming through," Owens continued.

More Americans will pack up their household goods and move in June than at any other time of the year. Uprooting oneself is stressful enough, but for some consumers the move can be a financial nightmare. These are cases where the mover quotes one price to transport household goods, then during the move demands two to four times the original estimate. Sometimes a mover will even hold furniture hostage until the consumer pays up. Federal law limits how much movers can veer off their original estimates, but it applies only to residents moving from one state to another.

Mary Wyatt wept yesterday -- tears of joy, this time, instead of tears of despair.The kindness of others simply overwhelmed her and her family, facing the loss of their Northeast Baltimore rowhouse after her husband, Walter, suffered a back injury that rendered him incapable of working. In April, Congress killed a federal program that would have helped the couple and their three children keep their home.Yesterday, more than 50 good Samaritans offered to help. Sandy Hoffman of Pikesville had called to say she'd drop by later with clothing for the children.

It's in everything from sandwich bags, microwaves and stereos to DVDs, cars and computers. Even the adhesive on shampoo labels and the caulking around bathtubs across America depends on it. Oil and natural gas are the base materials for chemicals and raw materials that show up in more than 90 percent of the consumer goods and packaging Americans take home from the mall. And just like the gas fueling American cars, those fossil fuel-based raw materials have gotten more expensive and harder to get in the wake of Hurricane Katrina as a result of the temporary loss of dozens of key chemical plants along the Gulf Coast.

LAST WEEK I did a reverse covered-wagon. Like the settlers of old, I journeyed, along with my 22-year-old son, halfway across the country hauling a cargo of household goods. Unlike the covered-wagon crowd, we traveled west to east, from Kansas to Maryland. Instead of a horse-drawn wagon, we bounced along in a rented truck that rolled some 1,100 miles, mostly on Interstate 70. Our two days as cross-country truckers - sitting up high behind the wheel, parking next to the big rigs in the rest stops - came at the end of a tumultuous time for our family.

LAST MONTH I actually remembered bulk trash day in time to haul what amounted to a kitchen and half-bath from the shed out to the curb: cabinets, an oven with cook top and hood, a stainless-steel sink, a toilet, two vanity sinks and an assortment of doors and plywood remnants.Much of our offering to the gods of the landfill was truly trash, but some was still serviceable, and I felt guilty.If you missed bulk trash day, consider donating usable household goods through the Quaker Market sponsored by the Annapolis Friends Meeting on Saturday.
