Tails wagged, panting was popular and fights were few at yesterday's Bark in the Park fundraiser for the Humane Society of Baltimore County. But the kissing booth was a bust. It seems even dogged canine lovers don't want to pay $2 to get smooched by a pooch. "A lot of people were taking pictures, but no one was kissing the dog," Frank Branchini, the Humane Society's executive director, said of the booth as he surveyed the waning hours of what was otherwise a hit event. At least 500 people and their canine companions attended the event on the society's Nicodemus Road grounds in Reisterstown.

When he was in prison, Harold Bailey said, he would often think about the homicide that resulted in his 20-year incarceration and about how his criminal record might cost him opportunities for employment or education. To continue the undergraduate education he had worked at for two years, Bailey would sit in his cell and voraciously read novels, autobiographies, academic texts — any work he could get his hands on. Since his release in 2005, Bailey has earned two degrees, a bachelor's and a master's, from Coppin State University.

Baltimore's pioneer and forgotten professional social worker, Mary Ellen Richmond, who has been compared to her contemporary, Jane Addams of Chicago's Hull House, is buried on a slight knoll in Loudon Park Cemetery. Carved on the white marble tombstone is the Family Welfare Association's emblem and motto: "Light from hand to hand. Life from age to age." Richmond originated the casework method used by professional social workers.
