A 38-year old Columbia woman who spent 18 months in prison for stealing more than $350,000 from her employer will be going back for embezzling from her new boss. Tiffany Powers faces up to 15 years in prison after a Howard County Circuit Court jury found her guilty late Tuesday of stealing more than $28,000 over a six-month period from Clarksville chiropractor Vaughn Dabbs, for whom she worked a little more than a year as a personal assistant. According to her attorney, Powers had Dabbs' consent to dip into a bank account he kept for a real estate company he owned; the consent was intended as compensation for tasks he asked her to perform above her $16-an-hour job for Griffin Enterprises.

When her husband of 30 years died in 2004, Rosalie Lijinsky decided she no longer wanted to live in the 3,000-square-foot home they had shared with their daughter in the Columbia neighborhood of Hickory Ridge. She sold the house the same year for $720,000, more than double the purchase price, and rented a townhouse in Columbia with a view of Lake Elkhorn. Five years later, she purchased a townhouse in the same community overlooking the lake for $370,000. Her new home, built in 1986, has four stories, but it's about half the size of her previous residence, she said.

Meeko, a Shih Tzu, trembles as she focuses her huge brown eyes on Angela Webb. But the dog's not barking or trying to get away, and that's encouraging. Webb is spending an hour as the pet's mobile-spa stylist and has seen the dog steadily improve over the past six years, better tolerating the regular grooming sessions that the breed's long, silky hair requires. And as a rescue dog, Meeko is a special case. Meeko's owner, Lisa McKnew, who has followed Webb through job changes over the years, now brings her pet to Webb's months-old mobile grooming salon in the driveway of the groomer's Columbia home, instead of the other way around.
