When Bob Kuntz looks at the newly finished B & A Trail, he sees the end of year's of hard work. A former Severna Park Jaycees president, he credits the idea for the recreational trail to fellow Jaycee, Jim Hague.Hague, he says, proposed a linear hiking park in 1972. What better way to use the abandoned Baltimore & Annapolis Railroad lines that cut a swath through Severna Park to Annapolis, he reasoned.Later, Kuntz recalls, the Jaycees spent weekends straining on a home-made machine, built from two lawn mowers, mounted on the abandoned rails.

The case of Jaycee Dugard and her two daughters is terrifying, but we need to keep things in perspective. What happened to Ms. Dugard is so shocking, in part, because it is so rare. The case is certainly horrifying on multiple levels: that any child could be snatched off the street, be sexually abused and then become emotionally attached to someone like Phillip Garrido; that the victim would give birth to his children; that Mr. Garrido's wife would be complicit in some manner; that Ms. Dugard and her children did not escape; that children were raised with little contact with the social, educational and medical worlds; that authorities and neighbors missed earlier opportunities to blow the whistle; that a convicted sex offender was in the neighborhood; that Mr. Garrido's father said he was mentally unstable and did not intervene; and so on. However, according to a 1999 National Incidence Study that looked at all categories of missing children, the odds are roughly one in a million that a child will experience what the authors of the study call a "stereotypical kidnapping" - a small subset of nonfamily abductions where he or she is kept in hiding for a lengthy period of time and possibly killed.

For kidnap victims such as Jaycee Lee Dugard, recovery is rare. A full portion of her life - her entire teens and 20s - was poisoned by her abduction at age 11 and the 18 years of brutal captivity and deprivation that followed. Even psychologists and psychiatrists skilled at confronting the worst of human nature find it hard to fathom how Dugard can put the pieces back together and live some semblance of a normal existence. Things could well be worse for Dugard's two daughters, who were born into captivity in a ramshackle Antioch, Calif.

She threw herself into planning social events to go along with the organization's traditional activities: the spring and fall yard sales, the Thanksgiving baskets, the Christmas party for underprivileged children, the Easter egg hunt. But a dwindling membership is prompting the chapter - Carroll County's last - to disband. "We wanted to close ourselves down," Keith said, explaining the decision earlier this summer.
