St. Louis School says goodbye to principal

June 12, 1996|By Kathleen B. Hennelly | Kathleen B. Hennelly,CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The pope and Regis and Kathie Lee -- or at least some clever impostors -- will visit Clarksville this morning to help send off Sister Mary Catherine Duerr, who is leaving her job as principal of the St. Louis School.

The staff and children of St. Louis will hold a parade in the principal's honor. It will feature teachers dressed up as Regis and Kathie Lee and kindergartners dressed up as priests, nuns and the pope.

Complete with a police escort, they will file by a reviewing stand where parents, teachers and Sister Mary Catherine will watch.

The principal at St. Louis for 19 years, she is a member of the Sisters of the Holy Union and will take a year's sabbatical after she leaves June 14.

The school's new principal will be Terry Prevosto from Resurrection Church's St. Paul School in Ellicott City.

Burglar awakens resident, flees with jewelry box

A burglar in Glenwood bumped into a resident while leaving a home with loot in hand Monday, Howard County police said.

The confrontation between the intruder and the resident was brief and no one was injured, police said.

About 1 a.m. Monday, a burglar cut the window screen of a home in the 2700 block of Route 97, entered and took a jewelry box from the master bedroom, police said.

The resident was awakened during the burglary, and came in contact with the intruder as he tried to creep outside. But the suspect fled with the jewelry box, police said.

The intruder was described as a slim white male, age 20 to 22, about 5 feet 9 inches tall. He wore a baseball cap and he had medium-length, dark blond hair and stubble on his face, police said.
