My earliest recollection of the television that arrived in my family's Guilford Avenue home was the broadcast of the 1955 Preakness. We were all fixed on that black-and-white Sylvania mounted high on a wall. Nashua beat Swaps and went on to win the Belmont, too. Nashua was named 1955 Horse of the Year and later bred to many other winners. A number of the horses competing at Pimlico today are his descendants. Not long after that 1955 Preakness, my mother guided me through the recently opened Woodward wing of the Baltimore Museum of Art , where I was dazzled by the portraits of thoroughbred horses and of a tall and distinguished gentleman, William "Billy" Woodward, Nashua's owner.

Say goodbye to the Prowler. DaimlerChrysler has built the last one of these factory-built street rods and has donated the car - which came off the assembly line in Detroit on Feb. 15 - to an auction to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Although the original model carried a sticker price of $40,000, some dealers were getting more than $150,000 for the cars because they were in short supply and big demand. Today, used-car dealers say pre-owned Prowlers are hard to sell, and some of the cars have sat on lots for months awaiting new buyers.

Baltimore County police have stepped up patrols in the Hillendale area where a night prowler has broken into about 15 houses since July.The prowler, whom neighborhood residents call a cat burglar because the intruder quickly and quietly slips in and out of houses while they are sleeping, hit two houses on Taylor Avenue early Oct. 19."Basically what he is doing is cutting up a screen and then opening an unlocked window," said burglary Detective Edward Spragg. "He is taking mostly cash or small items laying around the houses."

But before local authorities could respond to her call for assistance, Berg had to wait a few moments -- for a tired 911 call-taker to finish his nap. According to police records, Berg's emergency call about 2:45 a.m. July 29 was delayed for one minute and 42 seconds as Louis Gerber, one of the county's 911 call-takers, fell asleep and snored into the phone.

Eastbound on the inner loop of the Beltway, just past the Loch Raven Boulevard exit where the road seems to rise into the sun, a voice inside Mayer Handelman's head whispers: "It's time! Let's see what this baby can do!"He stomps on the accelerator of his gleaming new 1998 Plymouth Prowler and the car leaps forward with the kind of jolt that usually leaves you cruising the neck brace aisle of a drug store. We shoot past a groaning 18-wheeler and then another big rig and then a minivan filled with either parishioners or prisoners -- there's no telling which, we're going too fast.
