Have any of you ever tipped off a friend or relative that they had some money coming to them? I've periodically checked my own name in the search engine on missingmoney.com with no hits, but in March I must have been bored, because I also ran my parents and sister through the system.

Retired U.S. Navy Capt. John "Jack" Slaughter said people often ask him what the secret to his long life is. "It was an awful lot of luck," he told friends and four generations of family - about 240 people from around the country and as far away as Canada - who gathered at the Colonnade in north Baltimore on Sunday to wish their patriarch a happy 100th birthday. For one thing, Slaughter said, the first ship he served on was the only one in a group of four to survive a battle during World War II. The other three ships were sunk.

The white house on San Domingo Creek in St. Michaels is where Jeanne Ruesch has taken to stretching summer weekends into five days with extended family and friends. The home, which has a cottage look and is featured in the current issue of Architectural Digest, reflects what Ruesch dreamed of in a retreat: an inviting place in harmony with the Eastern Shore's slower pace of life and a world away from suburban Washington, where her primary home is. In many ways, it embodies the vision her late husband had for an idyllic escape that lets all comers be as lively or private as they'd like.

Mourners packed into a Baptist church Saturday for the funeral of Angel Chiwengo, less than a mile from where she died after a Jeep she was riding in was hit by a car fleeing from police.

But during his eulogy — to a congregation of approximately 150 — the Rev. Walter L. Parrish III, pastor at Northside Baptist Church, questioned why the city or the department had not sent a representative to pay their respects.
