This, in my opinion, should be the type of news that makes headlines. Good deeds, humanitarian acts,Read More respect for life and love of all living beings. God Bless those fire fighters!!! I too had a "baby" and can only imagine teh appreciation I would feel at people making sure he was safe and sound. Thank you Patch for making this news!

Way to go to the firefighters, they are under paid to say the least, cut all the pay from the higherRead More up at the Department of Education, School board members and anyone who works in the jail system as a authority figure and give more to the firefighters, police officers and the actual teachers who deal with the little ones that are the most precious. The bureaucrats are all way over paid.

Its the survival of the fittest, as Darwin once stated. Millions of dollars have gone into thisRead More endeavor and the birds still cannot survive on their own. They have to be taught how to eat, walk around and how to fly. What a waste of our tax dollars!

If Catonsville Rails To Trails couln't win, then the next best project is Patapsco HeritageRead More Greenway. Congratulations to PHG! Thanks to Patch for running such a great "green" contest. It was fun.

The Kentlands Community Foundation supports and encourages volunteerism in many programs includingRead More the Go Green Group. The Go Green group educates and advocates for green practices in our small community in a BIG way. Our community leaders and volunteers make Green fashionable.

It seems unlikely that "one comment" will net $500. As Patch explains, "we'll pick aRead More comment at random and the organization gets a check. There is one shot per commenter but other commenters who support the group are welcome — so the more comments an organization receives, the better chance it has at winning. If you know of a worthy nonprofit, have it mobilize its supporters to leave comments." It actually sounds to me more like a way for Patch to boost traffic on its site so AOL can go to advertisers and Wall Street investors and say, see--it's working! To those offended by my cynicism, sorry, but when the pool of comments includes people who have commented twice, and people with unrecognizable names, the word "randomness" loses its meaning.

For those who are in east Riverdale come join us at William Wirt Middle School as we clean up BriersRead More Mill Run, that is the stream that runs between Parkdale and William Wirt.
