When Sidney Hollander Sr., the legendary Baltimore civil rights and social activist, celebrated his 90th birthday in 1972, he reflected on his life's work seeking equality for those who had long been denied it. "I was always warned by my conservative friends that if you give Negroes one finger, they'll want the whole hand," he told a Sun reporter at the time. "That's what I'm for. If they get the whole hand, then they'll finally be equal. "We've broken down a lot of the taboos and restrictions, but we haven't broken down the emotions behind those taboos and restrictions," he said.

The State Board of Morticians has come up with guidelines on the proper way to spread cremated remains in the hopes of dissuading mourners who have been pouring ashes onto a private beach on the Chesapeake Bay and at other inappropriate final resting places. The board completed a pamphlet last week that is intended to be given to anyone considering cremation. The move was a reaction to complaints from residents of Venice on the Bay, an Anne Arundel County community with a bay view so stunning it almost seems an invitation to spend eternity there.

The federal agents went through the lesson plans, step by step. How do you deal with someone who is screaming at you? How do you say "no" to the popular girl who wants you to smoke a joint? How do you tell your friend you don't want to join a gang? That's when the harsh realities of Baltimore streets ran into the four walls of the classroom at New Psalmist Baptist Church on Old Frederick Road on Thursday. "What if the gang members find you snitched and come to try to kill you?" one little boy asked.

Last month, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a pamphlet informing homeowners about the potential dangers associated with a type of home insulation that might be contaminated with asbestos. Through the pamphlet, the agency instructs homeowners on how to determine whether they have vermiculite insulation and what to do, if anything, if such insulation is found. While the agency basically recommends that homeowners who discover vermiculite leave it in place undisturbed, there may be circumstances under which homeowners would remove or enclose asbestos-containing vermiculite.

ROSS Z. PIERPONT has run for office unsuccessfully about 15 times in the past four decades, but a pamphlet he is distributing as part of his latest campaign shows that the 84-year-old retired surgeon has lost none of his edge. While Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend stays above the fray and Rep. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. ponders whether to enter the ring, Pierpont, a Republican and the only announced major-party candidate for governor, has laced his gloves and is swinging wildly. "Save our State from the costs and consequences of more Kennedy incompetence" is the title of the 18-page booklet that Pierpont distributed to news organizations last week.

The Last Days of Dogtown By Anita Diamant Author Anita Diamant found a pamphlet in a Cape Ann bookstore that told the story of an abandoned rural backwater at the turn of the 19th century. That history inspired an astonishing novel about a community in a harsh, isolated landscape near the Massachusetts coastline.

I must admit to a soft spot for dogs. Ask my wife. I'm sure sh thinks that, given an opportunity, every stray purebred or mongrel would find its way to our house, with me on the other end of the leash.So, I was already familiar with the plight of greyhounds who don't make the grade on the racing circuit and are put to sleep. But I never saw the issue handled so completely until I picked up a pamphlet the other day.The surprising thing was that the pamphlet was written by three fourth-graders from Stevens Forest Elementary School.

Maryland State Police will begin distributing brochures today that explain how to file complaints against the department, satisfying a key requirement of its racial-profiling settlement with African-American motorists. Distribution of the pamphlets represents the most visible change in state police procedures since the state signed a consent decree six months ago to end an 11-year legal battle. Troopers will hand them out to all motorists who receive traffic tickets and warnings. "The primary aim in having this brochure is to create a complaint process that is accessible and clear to everyone," said Deborah A. Jeon, one of the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland lawyers who helped negotiate the settlement.

When Baltimore held its mock bioterrorism attack drill last week, designed to sharpen the response skills of police, fire and medical workers, officials realized that someone was not prepared - the public. "The drill was an opportunity for us to explore what may arise in a crisis, and what was apparent was that we needed a vehicle to get information from the powers that be to the public at large," said Baltimore Fire Department spokesman Mike Maybin. "We weren't satisfied with the information that was available at that time to the public."

In what lawyers believe is the first case of its kind in Maryland, a Baltimore County jury ordered the Rite Aid Corp. yesterday to pay $250,000 to a woman who said she became permanently disabled after following incorrect advice on an information pamphlet enclosed with her Lyme disease antibiotic. Although Baltimore County Circuit Judge John F. Fader II will review many of the lawsuit's complex legal issues at a hearing in August, and although the case will likely go on from there to the Court of Appeals, yesterday's verdict is at least a short-term victory for Ellen Levy Gray, 42, of Owings Mills, a former star athlete who now strains to play with her 3- and 5-year-old children.

Annapolis' historic black neighborhoods rarely get mentioned on many guided tours and usually don't grace brochure covers. Now, the city has given this piece of the city's heritage its own travel guide.This month, the city published "African-American Heritage in Annapolis," a pamphlet detailing some of the lesser-known historic neighborhoods and architectural discoveries in the city."We have so much that focuses on the more well-known features of the historic district, we hoped people would use this as a way to learn more about the African-American community," said Donna C. Hole, a Planning and Zoning Department preservation planner who wrote the brochure for the city's Historic District Commission.
