Lynda Bohannon, of Upper Marlboro, received the Manifesting the Kingdom award from Cardinal Donald Wuerl in January. The award is given to men and women who “demonstrate the presence of Jesus in their lives and have participated in exceptional service to the Church.” She has been a tireless worker at St. Philip’s Church for years.
Stan Holmes, president of the Skyline Citizens Association, recently flew home from Colorado, with only his “two princesses,” granddaughters ages six months and five years of age. Pretty brave, I think!
Sister Zion, of Pine Lane in Skyline, has returned from a three-month visit to her native country, Eritrea, located in the Horn of Africa.

Borders Group has filed for bankruptcy, and is closing 200 of its stores nationwide, including both Borders Book Stores in Prince George’s County located in Bowie and Largo. A tremendous disappointment! Fortunately, however, the Borders in Charles County has been spared.
A stadium, featuring the Washington Kastles tennis team, will be built on the site of the former Hogates restaurant on the southwest waterfront. When we moved here in 1958, the old Hogates was our favorite eatery.
