Christian Nicholson of Columbia gave up a job as personal banker for his true calling, being dispatched via ambulance to help victims requiring immediate, sometimes life-saving attention. Meg Simmers of Baltimore felt a similar tug, leaving an air-quality management job. The two are members of the Howard County Fire and Rescue Services' 28th academy class, and on a recent Friday, they and about three dozen classmates took part in emergency training that included assisting a mock victim who had suffered a fall from an exercise machine at a gym. It was a fairly tame drill.

Jon Boyer is probably going to take a lot of heat for this -- we're sorry, Jon. But it's really our duty to report your utter fabulousness and rock-star status as an animal rescuer. Not that the ladies of Baltimore need any reminding, apparently. Homeless and injured animals seem to have something of a magnetic attraction to Boyer, who's a Baltimore police officer. He says police rescue cats and dogs all the time -- comes with the job. But he's a little flummoxed that his occasional drop-off at the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS)

When Airman Steven Doty was the first to rush to the scene of a downed helicopter in the Nuristan province of Afghanistan, he didn't consider the possibility that he might have been putting his own life in jeopardy. On May 3, 2010, a Russian aircraft bringing supplies to Kalagush, a military base that had been the target of several attacks, dropped suddenly to the ground as a result of mechanical failures. Doty, who worked at the base, leaped into action after observing the crash on a monitor at the base's joint operations command center.

It cleared paths for a sea trial from an Annapolis marina, a waterman in search of rockfish on the...

Jean-Pierre, a Maine coon cat, had a whirlwind of a December, but has, to say the least, landed on his feet. That's thanks to Robin McDonald, owner of the Howl natural pet food and supply store in Hampden, who's become something of a guardian angel to area pets in need. Left on the front porch of Howl in a carrier with a note, Jean-Pierre was found by an UPS driver who alerted McDonald about the involuntary visitor. McDonald took the feline inside, ferried him to a veterinarian for a once-over and flea treatment, and posted his photo on Facebook.

Editor: "Thank you!" This is my only way of reaching out to the gentleman that recovered my handbag from the roadway on Jan. 10, 2014. I was careless and left the purse on the top of the trunk of my car. As I left home, and turned south onto Route 924, apparently the handbag fell off. Three stops and 35 minutes later, I realized what had happened. This kind, caring, honest and thoughtful person had delivered my bag (intact) to my neighbor. He did not leave his name or any information that would enable me to thank him in person, give him a reward, treat him to dinner or even bake him a cake.
