During his 23 years with the New York City fire department, Ron Bucca lifted people out of elevator shafts, carried them from subway tunnels and dragged them out of rivers. People's lives depended on his clear head and steady hand in a crisis. Five years ago this Monday, Bucca arrived at the South Tower of the World Trade Center as smoke gushed out of its upper floors. He climbed the stairs up to the burning 78th-floor sky lounge, where scores were injured. As he started to fight the fire, the building collapsed.

One of the unsung blessings of Twitter is the way it continually reminds us that willful ignorance is alive and thriving in the American body politic. In the past week, we were treated to widely retweeted photos purporting to show Capt. Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol throwing a gang sign. The first controversial image showed up on an unvetted CNN social media webpage called iReport, and Internet trolls took it from there. The only problem is that the hand sign in question was the greeting of Kappa Alpha Psi, a historically black fraternity of which Johnson is a member.

Third in a series of profiles of candidates for governor. In 1991, Ron George opened a jewelry store on Main Street in Annapolis within sight of the State House dome, placing his name in oversized gold lettering on the 19th-century storefront. It turned out to be a convenient location for the conservative Republican state legislator now running for governor. For George, Main Street is not merely an address, it's a persona. Hardly a campaign appearance goes by without a reference to his connection to "Main Street" roots and values.

Havre de Grace. -- The day after Christmas in 1990, Kenny the drug dealer, age 23, bled to death in the hall closet of the filthy apartment where he lived with his girl-friend, Bev, and her 14-year-old son, Eric.He had been stabbed in the heart by Ron, a cook by trade, who turned 39 years old last Wednesday. Ron was upset and disappointed because what he thought was a quarter-gram of cocaine, bought not from Kenny but from an associate loitering outside of Kenny's doorway, had turned out to be something else, probably baking soda.

The chairman of the Baltimore County Republican Central Committee on Wednesday called for the immediate resignation of J. Ronald DeJuliis, the state's commissioner of labor and industry, over charges he stole campaign signs from his wife's primary opponent for state Senate. “If Mr. DeJuliis feels it's alright to break the law to advance the political career of a family member, he shows a total lack of judgement," said John Fiastro, Jr., head of the Republican group. "Such a criminal act disqualifies him from serving the citizens of Maryland as Labor Commissioner.

Ron Sanchez's roots in horse racing go deep into his childhood in Caracas, Venezuela, where his maternal grandmother took him to the races every weekend at La Rinconada, the country's largest and oldest track. "I was five years old and we'd walk all the way to the track, it's like two miles," Sanchez recalled Monday at Pimlico. "I fall in love [with horse racing]. Once you get here [to the race track], it's impossible to get out. " Though Sanchez also dreamed of becoming a major league baseball player - he was a member of the Venezuelan national team in his late teens and said he "almost signed" a pro contract - the love of racing never left.

When his free-agent market seemed to be crashing this winter, it was rumored that Cruz would simply return to Arlington, Texas, where he has batted .294 (26 points higher than his .268 career average) and blasted 92 home runs in 400 career games. Instead, the Orioles jumped in and grabbed Cruz on a one-year, $8 million deal and brought him to another place that has seen its share of home runs over the years: Camden Yards.

Republican gubernatorial hopeful Ron George usually keeps quiet about the flashiest part of his biography. But as he fielded a question about film tax credits at a candidates forum last week, George let slip that he had a brief and unglamorous career as a daytime soap opera actor. "I got to die once and come back a couple months later," George told a crowd at the University of Maryland law school. That's not all. The Republican delegate from Anne Arundel County is still a card-carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild, he said, a distinction that over the decades has earned him bit parts in various productions.

When Ron Tanner, an author and writing professor at Loyola University Maryland, purchased a condemned Victorian brownstone in Charles Village 14 years ago (against his real estate agent's advice), he knew nothing about restoration. The fact that the three-story rowhouse belonged to - and was trashed by - a college fraternity over a decade did not deter him and his then-girlfriend, Jill Eicher. In fact, they made it their mission to save the home from further destruction and restore it to its 1897 glory.
