Kim Holland's biker-chick days were over not long after they began, with the 46-year-old smashed between her Harley and a guardrail in Elkridge, and a bystander saving her right leg by taking off his belt and making it into a tourniquet before paramedics rushed her to the hospital. A week after she arrived at the University of Maryland's Shock Trauma Center - a week filled with operations and skin grafts, narcotics by pill and by pump - she lay in bed. The lights down low, soft music playing to drown out the buzzing and beeping and ringing that make up a hospital's soundtrack, two women slowly waved their arms over Holland's broken body, as if trying to push away the pain.

A Wicca devotee and small businessman from Dundalk came forward yesterday with a photocopy of a lottery ticket showing the winning numbers to Friday's Mega Millions drawing and claimed a share of the estimated $330 million jackpot, though lottery officials have yet to verify his assertion. "I kind of screamed, and then I kind of cried," said Elwood "Bunky" Bartlett, 40, retelling the story of how he and his wife, Denise, greeted the news yesterday morning. Maryland State Lottery officials said they had yet to see the ticket and confirm it was a winner, but planned to meet with Bartlett, a bookkeeping service operator and father of two, on Tuesday.

Hospital garage to use new entrance during construction The entrance and exit to the parking garage at North Arundel Hospital has been moved to the east side of the garage, near the hospital's west lobby and flag poles, because of construction at the hospital's new cancer center. The driveway to the garage has been marked with signs to aid patients and visitors. Flagmen will direct traffic. Visitors are asked to use caution when entering and exiting the parking garage. Although construction has reduced visitor parking in front of the hospital, free parking is available in the garage.
