Bill Newton was a motorcycle guy looking to change the general public's impression of people like him. So, he and some of his fellow leather-clad, bearded bikers signed up to pick up trash on the side of a piece of Reisterstown Road in the center of their town. These days, the Freedom Few Motorcycle Club of Maryland Inc. is a full-fledged charity that has done countless good deeds and participated in and even launched several programs to help their neighbors and others. And, nearly two decades later, they are still picking up litter.

For decades, Norman M. Stamp belonged to two brotherhoods. The 65-year-old was one of the city's longest-serving active-duty officers, who on Wednesday had celebrated his 44th year with the Baltimore Police Department . He also belonged to the Chosen Sons - a gritty motorcycle club that Stamp helped found in the 1960s, with a tight-knit membership that didn't shy from a fight. Stamp looked out for his fellow bikers, according to his friends in the club. To his colleagues on the force, Stamp was a loyal officer who would never knowingly harm a colleague.

LITTLE ORLEANS -- Bill's Place has the look a Hollywood studio might spend thousands of dollars to achieve for a movie. It's the kind of place curators at the Smithsonian might spend months trying to create for an Americana exhibit.For William J. Schoenadel, who bought the store in 1969, the look was easy. "We just tried to keep from making changes," he said.Sometimes genius is knowing enough not to mess with a good thing.This creaky combination of general store, bar, restaurant, sporting goods outlet, pool room and just-about-everything-else off the C&O Canal in the southern Allegany County village of Little Orleans is an oasis with an international reputation known to hikers, bikers, hunters and others who happen to pass through.

TO MEET THE founder of the notorious motorcycle gang known as Semites on Bikes, I pick the busy parking lot of an elementary school, just in case there's any trouble. My thinking here is: The guy tries any rough stuff, I can throw some little kid in his path, slow him up, make a break for it. Then again, the gang's Web site, which I had visited earlier in the day, sounded more funny than ominous: "Semites on Bikes is a group of Jewish bikers riding in the Baltimore and Baltimore County areas.

A shooting at a Baltimore County nightclub appears to have been sparked by a rivalry between motorcycle gangs, putting police on the watch for what they fear could become an ugly turf war in Maryland, authorities said yesterday. The gunman in the shooting Sunday night at Club Tattle Tails in Edgemere was wearing a vest identifying him as a prospective member of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang, and the two shooting victims are apparently members of the Pagans gang, police said. One of the victims remained in critical condition last night.
