Words cannot express our gratitude for all of the prayers, thoughts, help and encouragement offered to our family during the difficult time after our house fire. So many individuals have reached out to help us. Please know that each of you made a big difference in helping us get out of the house in time and then transition to our new home. I really don't know where I would be without you. As a family, we are truly blessed to be a part of this caring community. I am still amazed by how many of you jumped at the opportunity to drop off essentials, help us move and collected items and money.

Kudos, once again, to Craig Witzke. I moved to Baltimore, 27 years ago, to start a distribution/construction business. By accident, I ended up living in Catonsville; it was the town at the end of I-70. I never regretted that decision. It is a wonderful community of which I am very proud to a member, even if I'm not really considered a Catonsvillian by some. I've never met anyone that cared for and did as much for Catonsville as Craig Witzke.  I am honored to have called him a friend for nearly 20 years.

Catonsville Community College has joined bigger, four-year colleges and universities in the pursuit of donor money, aiming to raise $8 million in a capital campaign.The college began its campaign on campus and through alumni in the spring, but plans to make it public today at a groundbreaking ceremony for a project that is its major beneficiary -- an applied technology center."Community colleges haven't historically been in the fund-raising business," said John Hayden, a Towson lawyer in his second year as the college's foundation president, explaining that the two-year institutions rely instead on state and county funds and federal grants.

Erika Gonzalez, 18, has been working at the Charlestown retirement communtiy in Catonsville for nearly two years, coming in after school and on weekends to wait tables and serve as a hostess in the Atrium dining room. She started working there because it was close to her Catonsville home, and it gave her a chance to "save up some money to help my parents out," she said. Now, like 45 other teens who work at Charlestown and recently graduated from high school, Gonzalez is beginning her college career with a welcome financial boost of $1,200 per year.

I just finished reading Mary Tilghman's article "Church members vote to become Catholic" in the Feb. 27 issue of the Catonsville Times. The subject of this article is intriguing, to say the least. I've lived in the Catonsville community for over 50 years and teach history at a nearby high school so the news that the congregants of St. Timothy Episcopal Church have voted to join the Roman Catholic Church was indeed surprising. However, for all the information related to the nature of the congregational vote, pastoral support, and future plans, nowhere in the article was a very crucial piece of information mentioned: Why was this decision made?

Who among us has done something of which we are not particularly proud? Why does one misdeed overshadow the goodness of an individual? I have known the Whalen family for over 30 years and have seen their goodness and the contributions they have made to the Catonsville community. First and foremost, Mr. Whalen has provided thousands of jobs for Catonsville and Baltimore area workers — from construction folks and office workers to those who keep parking lots swept of snow.

Prospects for an independent Carroll Community College became formal yesterday with the County Commissioners' acceptance of the Future of Carroll Community College Task Force Report.The report recommended that CCC, which was opened in 1976 as a branch of Catonsville Community College, work toward becoming an independent institution, and that commissioners appoint a transition team to develop detailed information necessary to support an independent college and accreditation.The report did not set a time frame in order to allow commissioners and college officials ample time to evaluate the work of the transition team and to minimize disruption to CCC students.

The Loverde Family Community Fund thanks donors and sponsors of the 25th reunion dance of the legendary Annapolis-based band, the Van Dykes. The dance was attended by 500 followers from around the country. It raised funds for the Loverde Family Fund's annual Thanksgiving Day dinner for neighbors in need in greater Catonsville. The dance also collected 1,000 pounds of food for the CEFM Network to fill the gap in many local pantries. The fund is especially grateful to Scittino's Italian Market on Edmondson Avenue for discounting food year-round and making it possible to serve additional dinners on a monthly basis.
