Tom Bailey's walking stick, turned gray by age and weather, skimmed stealthily along the water surface like a snake approaching its prey. A patch of sunlight danced on the water and glinted off the aluminum hook at the tip as it darted in and out of the shadows.The stick glided deftly through a rocky, water-filled crevice. With a sudden movement, the hook snagged its quarry.Tom Bailey let out a muted grunt of satisfaction. He raised the walking stick, removed the beer can from the hook, stomped it on a rock, and stuffed it into one of the deep pockets of his U.S. Army Ranger field jacket.

Baltimore County officials promised new safety measures Tuesday to prevent violence in public schools — including hand-held metal detectors, an increased police presence and a new administrative security office — after a teacher wrestled a gun from an eighth-grader two weeks after a shooting at a nearby high school. The changes, to take effect in the coming weeks, will be folded into a larger "systemic look at what steps the school system can take" to prevent further acts of violence, said County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, who pledged that the county will "allocate resources in whatever capacity" necessary.

A knock rarely brings the owner to the front door of Stemmer House. It is more likely that she will emerge to greet you from her gardens, wearing her trademark galoshes, tool belt, work gloves and sun hat. Though Barbara Holdridge has lived in this historic Baltimore County home for nearly 40 years, it is her gardens that demand her time and attention. More than six of the 27 acres that surround the home are formally landscaped, and if they don't need to be weeded, they need to be watered.
