Kenneth Collins didn’t recognize its significance at the time. But 50 years later, the Crofton man and former Washington, D.C., patrol officer is reflective as he recalls locking eyes with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. “He looked right at me and 1 could tell, just looking at his eyes, what kind of person he was,” said Collins, 78. “And when 1 heard him talk, that was it. I have never heard a man talk like that, ever ” Collins, then a 28-year-old father of two, was standing behind King as the civil rights leader delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech to a crowd of about 250,000 people from the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28, 1963. He appeared in an iconic photo, snapped by a United Press International photographer, that ran in newspapers around the world. The 50th anniversary of the march is on Wednesday. As it approaches, Collins smiles and says there’s a lot he doesn’t remember. He doesn’t remember how he ended up being assigned to King’s security detail. He has no idea where he went after the crowds dispersed that day.

Annapolis mayoral candidates address residents’ concerns By ELISHA SAUERS firstname.lastname@example.org With many city residents saying they want their leaders to address crime, taxes and fees, development proposals, and the languishing Market House, Mayor Josh Cohen’s four op ponents trace many city problems to wasteful spending, lack of government transparency and a poor planning process. The Republican nomination for mayor, to be decided during the pri mary elections on Sept. 17, will go to Bob O’Shea, a medical, defense and government consultant; Mike Pantelides, a government software sales representative; or Frank Bradley, the retired owner of a flooring business. Bevin Buchheister, a lawyer and downtown activist, will try to knock Cohen out of the run ning in the Democratic primary The general election is Nov. 5. While the challengers take the incumbent to task for his record, Cohen says the next four years are about continuing work on long term plans he has started Cohen said that in 2009 he inherited a financial train wreck, and much of his first term was spent getting the city’s financial house back in order.

Bear can smell when Turk’s blood-sugar level is abnormal. See more photos at capital gazette.com By Kate Yoon, Staff Bear goes back to school (ilen Biirnie teacher’s (lial)etie alert doji is classroom fixture By KATE YOON email@example.com Going back to school at Monarch Academy will be business as usual this year. Every morning, students will get off their bus, walk into the school, say hi to Bear and then start their lessons. Bear, music teacher Kenzie Turk’s 57-pound black Labrador retriever, has become an integral part of the institution after his first year at the public charter school in Glen Bumie. The dog is even pictmed in last year’s yearbook, among the staff. But he’s not a new teacher,*‘and he’s not a class pet. Bear is Turk’s diabetic alert dog. With their natural sense of smell, dia betic alert dogs can detect blood-sugar extremes up to an hour before the most advanced technology. When blood sugar is high, Turk said, the body smells sweet; when it is low, the smell is acidic. Last September, 'Turk brought the tiny 16 week-old Bear to school after she realized she couldn’t tell by herself when she needed to check her blood sugar. At a former school, her 4 year-old students found her passed out at the back of the building. She was in a coma for a month and had to relearn how to walk. Turk has “brittle diabetes,” a rare form of Type 1 diabetes that means that “no matter how good I am about taking care of myself eating, exercising, taking my insulin, stuff like that — it will just randomly decide to do whatever it wants.” (See BEAR, Page AlO) SUNDAY'S WEATHER 83|64 HIGH LOW SUNNY Monday: Mostly sunny.
