ASA HILLIARD BELIEVES that taking care of America's children is everyone's job -- childless folks, parents and grandparents. He also believes that the responsibility extends to institutions as well as to individuals.And when Hilliard, an Atlanta educator, talks about care, he means more than meeting a child's physical and educational needs. He means giving every child identity, values, spirituality and sense of community."When I see a child, I see my own children. And if that's so, I cannot allow him to fall between the cracks," Hilliard told the nearly 600 child care workers and teachers attending Mayor Kurt Schmoke's Third Annual Child Care Conference Saturday at the Convention Center.

The children flooding our borders are being cared for as no other country has ever cared for a population that illegally entered it. They are being fed and housed and cleansed of many diseases we had thought eradicated in this country years ago. They have, for the most part, come here and surrendered, hoping to be reunited with parents or relatives after having been given a "permiso" from our government. A huge lie has been fed to them. The president wants $3.7 billion to care for them and to keep them here.

BEFORE THE ERA of two-income families, the job of caring for the elderly fell mostly to relatives. Families were bigger, so siblings were available to help share the burden from time to time.Today, many households depend on outside sources for help with their elderly. In the Baltimore region, where the number of old people is growing, public services for the elderly are extremely popular. They cannot, however, be a priority for cash-strapped local governments, which are having a hard-enough time meeting demand for police and schools.

I came of age in 1980, just as the women's movement hit its full stride, and those were the days. At my first real job I had sign that read: "Women have to do twice as much to be thought of half as good as men; luckily, this is not difficult. " Unlike our mothers and grandmothers, we faced an open world of opportunity, possibilities, goals and achievable dreams. No more would we be limited to being receptionists, nurses and teachers - you know, the girls-only jobs. In fact, I and most of my girlfriends were in the science/math curriculum in school and attended some form of college.

The death of a toddler last week in Severn has been ruled a homicide, and Anne Arundel County police said charges against the man who was taking care of the youngster are pending. Police said Charles Michael Brandley, 3, reportedly fell down stairs Aug. 7 at a home in the 8200 block of Tomlinson Court and was taken to the Baltimore Washington Medical Center. But then he was flown to Johns Hopkins Hospital in critical condition, where doctors told police that the child's injuries did not match those of a tumble down the stairs.

A U2 concert Nancy Fleming didn't attend, a boat she doesn't own, jewelry she doesn't have.Those are some of the things Anne Arundel County prosecutors say Fleming, who is disabled, paid for.But, prosecutors say, the beneficiary was the woman who was supposed to be taking care of Fleming but who stole her savings instead.Today, Circuit Judge Clayton R. Greene is to decide if defendant Romy T. Gresham, 28, of Pasadena can withdraw the guilty plea her lawyer, Michael S. Pappafotis, says was made a year ago because prosecutors misled him.Gresham's plea to the theft charge occurred last April 28, when she acknowledged prosecutors had enough evidence to convict her but she did not admit responsibility for a crime.

Regarding a recent proposal to house unaccompanied children who enter the country illegally in a facility in Maryland, I would like to suggest that charity begins at home ( "Feds look to Baltimore to shelter immigrant children," June 9). The city, the state and the country are all in financial straits, with so many of our citizens already on public assistance and our nation deeply in debt. We simply cannot afford the expense of housing, feeding, educating and providing medical services to illegal immigrants, including thousands of unaccompanied immigrant children.

Several receiving options remain available on the free-agent market and one big name, the Carolina Panthers' Steve Smith, could become available soon. There are a number of veteran offensive linemen who are still unsigned, while the market at safety and middle linebacker - two positions of need for the Ravens - continues to thin out. However, in Day 2 of free agency, the Ravens focused on taking care of their own. After officially signing Eugene Monroe and declaring him their left tackle “for many years to come,” the Ravens struck a four-year deal with Jacoby Jones, keeping one of the heroes of the team's run to the Super Bowl XLVII title in the organization.

Led by a dominating defensive performance, No. 12 Navy defeated Davidson, 14-5, on Sunday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The Midshipmen (4-0) allowed one shot on goal in the first half, and the Mids' stifling defense caused 16 of the Wildcats' 21 turnovers. Midfielder Jill Coughlin (St. Mary's) scored Navy's first goal as it jumped out to an early 4-0 lead, which the Mids would extend to 6-0 by halftime. Davidson (0-2) cut the deficit to 7-2 in the second half, but never got any closer.

Heavy wet snow, like the kind that is on the ground now in the Baltimore region , can be a major threat to a person's heart, according to local and national health officials. The American Heart Association says most people will not have any ill effects from exertion, but shoveling and even just walking can increase risk in others. To make the situation safer, the association reminds people they should take frequent breaks, don't eat a heavy meal before or soon after shoveling and use a small shover so the loads are lighter.

As a player, Ray Lewis was outspoken about the NFL's efforts to eliminate certain kinds of hits from the game. Not surprisingly, his opinion hasn't changed since transitioning into an analyst role for ESPN. Lewis, who played 17 seasons in the NFL and was regarded as one of the league's most feared hitters, would always say that the league should let the game police itself. He reiterated those thoughts yesterday during a conference call with the national media ahead of his induction Sunday into the Ravens' Ring of Honor.

It didn't take long to see why a retired city public schools teacher is hailed by her neighbors as Miss Auchentoroly or, to others, the Clean Up Lady. Barbara Anderson-Dandy is one of those Baltimore community dynamos who say they work behind the scenes - and do. It's just that they never stop working, and along the way have established a reservoir of good will. She says she loves the challenge of stewarding a highly visible city neighborhood perched at the edge of Druid Hill Park.

A traveling museum exhibit spotlighting eye care will make a stop at the Maryland Science Center at the Inner Harbor from Friday through Sunday. The interactive "Eye Didn't Know That!" exhibit features explanations of how the eye works; a look through cataract goggles that replicate symptoms of the eye disease, and a description of eye-care advances, such as photochromic technology that protects the eye from UV light with changing shades of lenses in eye glasses. The exhibit, sponsored by photochromics supplier Transitions Optical Inc., is designed for visitors of all ages but especially hopes to impress on children the importance of taking care of their eyes throughout life's stages.

The Who, What and Where of Elder Care By Jill R.E. Yesko and Ruth E. Thaler-Carter LifeBridge Health/Free on request The job of caring for an elderly adult is exhausting and emotionally taxing. But this book, produced as a public service project by Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital, which is part of LifeBridge Health, and the law firm of Hodes, Ulman, Pessin & Katz P.A., helps ease the burden. It's rare to have such good information offered for free. "The best thing that could happen is that we'd have to print another series," says Helene King, the LifeBridge marketing director.

Baltimore might not seem like a hot tourist destination, but for my husband and me, it was the offer of a free place to stay that catapulted Charm City to the top of our travel bucket list. An advertisement for a split-level suburban home with a bubbling fountain in a well-landscaped backyard caught my eye. After two conversations with the homeowner, we signed contracts for the 11-month-long stay in Timonium. No, we wouldn't be tourists — we would be housesitters. All we needed was to pack the car and set the GPS from Michigan to Maryland.

I read with great interest The Sun's recent article about the reaction of churches that are protesting the soon-to-be instituted stormwater fee. The work being done by the churches named in the article is commendable - food pantries, assistance to the homeless, and the like - and their work to keep their ministries solvent in a difficult economy is certainly not easy. Having been part of the denominational church for my entire life, I understand that there's only so much money to go around, and that it's impossible to help every person in need, but that God commands us to try to do so anyway.
