Wayne Sharpe worked as a contingent at the Lisbon Volunteer Fire Company for 33 years and seven months. He's been a volunteer paramedic for even longer. But now, he's on the hunt for a new job. Though he still volunteers at the Lisbon station, Sharpe, 56, says a new Howard County policy for contingent firefighters and EMTs is the reason he decided to leave behind his paid contingent gig of about $30,000 a year. Contingents are part-time paid firefighters and EMTs without benefits who help staff stations when there aren't enough volunteers or career personnel available.

A vacant single-family home collapsed Wednesday following an early morning fire in Lisbon, Howard County fire officials said. Firefighters responded about 2:30 a.m. to the 16000 block of Old Frederick Road to find the house fully engulfed in flames after a passerby spotted the blaze and called 911, officials said. Units from Carroll County helped to extinguish the blaze, which took about 30 firefighters more than an hour to get under control, officials said. Initial reports show the property was not occupied and did not have sprinklers or smoke alarms installed, fire officials said.

The crossing of Maryland Routes 2, 408 and 422 in the bayside, southern Anne Arundel County community of Lothian has long been a troublesome intersection for local drivers. Ruled only by a flashing red light and a large stop sign for east-west traffic and a flashing yellow for the north-south flow, this crossroads has been the scene of more than a few accidents caused by drivers who plowed through without heeding the signals.The State Highway Administration announced late last month that it wants to remedy the situation by replacing the four-way intersection with a traffic circle, or "roundabout," at a cost of about $175,000.

As reported Oct. 18, 1992, in The Sun: Some call it a traffic circle. Engineers prefer the term "roundabout." One mischievous patron at Lee's Market in Lisbon (population 129) has even labeled it the "Lisbon Beltway" on the flier that graces the deli counter wall. Whatever you call it, the plan to build one at the intersection of Old National Pike (Route 144) and Route 94 is all the talk in this tiny western Howard County community: Some like the idea, many others do not. "It's an experiment," says Dorothy Gray, a clerk at Lee's and a die-hard opponent.

What has the Lisbon roundabout wrought? Look no further than the drawing boards of State Highway Administration officials who envision several more traffic circles in Maryland. Among the vexing intersections that the SHA plans to solve with roundabouts are Maryland Routes 2, 408 and 422 in Lothian (Anne Arundel County), Routes 140 and 832 in Taneytown (Carroll), and Routes 63, 58 and 494 in Cearfoss (Washington).The crossroad added most recently to the list is one that has bedeviled drivers and traffic engineers for decades -- the confluence of York, Joppa and Dulaney Valley roads and Allegheny Avenue in Towson, Baltimore County's seat.

Esmeralda, a very colorful Chinese papier-mache dragon, returned to her home in the media center at Lisbon Elementary School last month, reports Principal Lou Chillemi. Lisbon parent Karen Dutton spent countless hours adding layers of papier-mache, repainting and sealing Esmeralda, a five-toed dragon. In Chinese folklore, a five-toed dragon is the emperor's and always does good deeds. Lisbon students love Esmeralda and find her a favorite place to curl up and read, according to Mr. Chillemi.
