The Middle River Volunteer Ambulance Rescue Co. has acquired a piece of rusted steel from the fallen World Trade Center with plans to make the artifact the focal point of its lobby. Volunteers will make a temporary public display for the 2- by 2-foot section, until a decision is reached on a permanent placement. The artifact, which members say will serve as a visible reminder of the sacrifices made on Sept. 11, 2001, came to the station on Leland Avenue after a year of negotiations with the Port Authority in New York and New Jersey.

When Baltimore County police squad cars arrive at Chase Elementary in Middle River, it is usually for a social call. Uniformed officers, carrying several bags of carryout from a local deli, head to the fifth-grade classroom.

The officers rotate the days, according to their shift assignments, but typically spend one lunch hour every other week with the child they are mentoring.
