When Scott Wheeler applied for a job at the Howard County Police Department, his mother told the agency's background investigator: "My son would give everything he has to his job." "How prophetic your words were," Police Chief William J. McMahon told Janet Wheeler yesterday at her son's funeral at Grace Community Church in Fulton. More than 1,000 people - about half of them members of the law enforcement community - attended yesterday's service for the first Howard County officer to die in the line of duty since 1961.

Mary K. Wheeler, the retired owner of a women's fitness center, died of kidney failure March 14 at Anne Arundel Medical Center. The Arnold resident was 70. Born Mary Klimczack in Baltimore and raised in Brooklyn, she was a 1959 Seton High School graduate. She attended nursing training at St. Agnes Hospital. Family members said she had an interest in physical fitness and opened her own center in homes that she owned in the Glen Burnie area and in Nashua, N.H. "She was one of the original Jane Fonda persons," said her husband, John B. Wheeler, who is a retired City of Annapolis worker.

Tracy Wheeler had never asked her husband the question before, but on the morning of June 16, a Saturday, she asked him what he'd be doing during his overtime shift with the Howard County Police Department that day. "Step-outs," Scott Wheeler said, and she cringed. She didn't like step-outs. They require an officer to step into the highway and wave over speeding cars so the drivers can be ticketed. She told him to crawl back in bed with her instead. "They'll never miss you at work," she told her husband of just 10 months, but they both knew she wasn't serious.

Sgt. Frederick von Briesen hugged Tracy Wheeler after she handed him the award honoring both his dedication to keeping the roads of Howard County safe and her husband's memory. Smiles and tears flowed at the Howard County Police Awards Ceremony held Tuesday night at the George Howard Building in Ellicott City. It was the first time the annual ceremony had been held since Cpl. Scott Wheeler was fatally struck by a car after he stepped onto a road to flag down a speeding car in June. Von Briesen described the recognition as "bittersweet," adding that the Scott Wheeler Traffic Safety Award would never have been created if the accident had never occurred.

A Howard County police officer died early yesterday from head injuries received when he was struck by a car he tried to flag down for speeding Saturday afternoon. He was the first Howard County police officer to die in the line of duty in 46 years. Pfc. Scott Wheeler, who had earned several awards during more than six years with the department, was working overtime on a speed enforcement detail on eastbound Route 32 between Interstate 95 and U.S. 1 when he stepped into the road to wave over a Nissan Sentra about 2 p.m. and was struck.

Scott Wheeler. The day Scott was critically injured while conducting traffic enforcement was one of the worst in the department's history. As our police family huddled around Scott and the Wheeler family at the hospital, an even larger, extended family was mobilizing around the county. As word of Scott's death spread, members of our community rallied around us. We received offers of help every day, with words of support and encouragement.
