Johns Charles Macgill Jr., a decorated World War II bomber pilot who flew 30 combat missions and was decorated with the Distinguished Flying Cross, died of heart failure Oct. 22 at Montgomery Regional Hospital in Blacksburg, Va. He was 88. The son and grandson of physicians, Mr. Macgill was born in Baltimore and raised at "Eureka," the old Macgill family home on Frederick Road in Catonsville. Mr. Macgill was interested in flying since he was a child. "Coming from a long line of doctors, it became embedded into Charlie's mind what his future would be. However, at the age of 9, he saw an airplane, and as happened so often in the early days of flight, he became enamored with flight," wrote Robin Smith, historian for the 486th Bomb Group Association, in a profile.

All roads lead to Kings Contrivance, but few go through this village in Columbia. And for resident Vic Baffa, that's one of the things that makes the area special. At the southeastern edge of Columbia, Kings Contrivance is easily accessed by U.S. 29 and Route 32 as well as Interstate 95. But once off the highways, it's a different story. "Most of the roads are not through roads," Baffa said. "You drive into a neighborhood and eventually you have to turn around at a dead end. It tends to slow people down."
