James E. Johnston, a retired Navy Department worker who also maintained a home-improvement business, died Sunday of cancer at FutureCare Lochearn. The longtime Northwest Baltimore resident was 88. Born and raised in Roanoke Rapids, N.C., James Eugene Johnston was the son of a seamstress. His father died when he was 5, family members said. After graduating in 1942 from McIver High School in Roanoke Rapids, Mr. Johnston enlisted in the Army. He served as a cook, and after being discharged in 1944, remained an active reservist for six years.

In her 22 years at Johnston Square Elementary School, Janice Shelford has spent more than $15,000 of her own money at the Dollar Store and Staples for school supplies for her students. But as of Thursday, she and dozens of other teachers will be heading to a new supply store whose impact on their classrooms will be priceless - literally. Johnston Square served as the launch site of the Wish-List Depot, a nonprofit organization that set up a free store where the school's 24 teachers, and eventually 54 others from three neighboring schools, can stock up on classroom supplies at no cost to the schools or the teachers.

No. 8 Lehigh is 9-1 for the first time in program history and has reeled off a school-record eight consecutive wins, and a pair of Baltimore area players have contributed to the team's success. Senior attackman Adam Johnston, a Street native and St. Paul's graduate, has scored 11 goals. Junior midfielder Brian Hess, an Owings Mills native and McDonogh graduate, has chipped in three goals and two assists. “I think it's pretty cool,” said Johnston, who is tied for second on the team in goals despite making just three starts.

With 69 goals and 79 points in three years, senior attackman Adam Johnston has been a consistent scoring threat for Lehigh. Johnston, a Street native and St. Paul's graduate, has scored 27 goals in each of his last two seasons since becoming a full-time starter, and Mountain Hawks coach Kevin Cassese said the team has relied on Johnston's versatility. “Adam's been a four-year starter for us, he's played a variety of roles,” Cassese said Wednesday during a conference call organized by the Patriot League.

It's nearly impossible to adequately put into perspective all of the contributions to Harford County made by Imogene B. Johnston, who died Oct. 26 at the age of 92. Mrs. Johnston was a major architect both of the county charter and the eventual transition to home rule government in Harford County in the period 1968-74, though undoubtedly she herself would have considered her contributions to be modest ones. In reality, she was the glue that held a lot of things together in those early days of a new government that was birthed with considerable pain and confusion.
