Johns Hopkins trauma surgeon Albert Chi gave a talk last year to families about advanced prosthetics that would someday benefit their children who were missing hands. But when a parent asked what was easy, available and affordable now, Chi was at a loss. After focusing on the latest artificial limb technology, he began to hunt for more basic options. Like many researchers, entrepreneurs and even artists in recent years, he turned to the 3-D printer. With one his wife bought him for Father's Day, sheets of colored plastic, and free designs and advice found online, he made a hand for about $20. "One of the first kids we fitted was a 2-year-old," Chi said.

I left New York in 1958 to become a reporter in Chicago, which then was the training ground and battlefield for the most aggressive and energetic journalists in the United States. I immediately began covering cops and crime and the federal courts for the legendary, now dead, City News Bureau, and then the Cook County Criminal Courts for the Chicago Tribune. I covered mob trials and watched legendary mobsters led silently in and out of grand jury rooms. I went on raids of operations of "the Outfit" -- a term proudly particular to Chicago, where "Mafia" was seldom used.

It could have been a mother of a shopping challenge: Nine weeks after giving birth, a 42-year-old woman seeks the perfect outfit for a very public event, where all eyes instantly will assess her sense of style. But when the woman is first lady Kendel Ehrlich - with half the baby weight gone, congenital self-confidence and a coterie of advisers dedicated to making her look mahvelous - dressing for Saturday's Preakness proved to be a breeze. The shopping expedition was put off until just days before the Preakness because the Ehrlichs' infant son, Joshua, had to have surgery to correct an abdominal blockage.

This time of year, Lauren Kelly, a 28-year-old English teacher in Notre Dame Prep's middle school, is usually in serious holiday-mode, perhaps planning how to accessorize her New Year's frock, found in Georgetown with her mother.But this year, the Federal Hill resident will be far away from the party circuit, in a place where the millennium is virtually insignificant. Instead of a dress, she'll be in a parka, wool sweater, jeans, boots, trying to take the chill off the lives of mistreated Romanian orphans, as part of the Romanian Challenge Appeal.

LOS ANGELES -- They are the men behind the Man in the Mirror. For nearly 20 years, L.A.-based costume designers Michael Bush and Dennis Tompkins have quietly designed most of Michael Jackson's personal and concert tour wardrobes, tens of thousands of pieces. They created the war-torn black shirt and pants he wore in the "Man in the Mirror" video and the rhinestone-encrusted American flag jacket he wore during a Washington, D.C., concert to support the victims of Sept. 11. And, since February, they have been outfitting Jackson for what could be his most important performance yet -- in a Santa Maria courtroom.

Joshua Cain felt miserable as his Engine 58 crew gathered in the kitchen of their Annapolis Road firehouse after a brutal blaze that ripped through several rowhouses and took hours to control. Only two months into the job as a Baltimore firefighter, he had found a dog that looked just like his childhood Belgian shepherd-poodle badly burned and not moving inside one of the ravaged homes. Cain and his colleagues sat around the kitchen table, telling stories of their own dogs. The camaraderie made him feel "like part of the team," Cain said.

Kathy Furth began reaching out to thread-savvy friends from her parish and a local sewing organization to gauge interest.

"It just spread like crazy," said Furth, owner of Sew Many Seams, a business that specializes in creating one-of-a-kind liturgical vestments.
