Ilias "Louis" Sabracos, a fixture in Baltimore's Greek community who owned several successful businesses, including a barbershop and diner, died Wednesday at University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center after suffering a stroke. He was 81. Born in Tripolis, Greece, Mr. Sabracos was one of four children born to a funeral director and a homemaker. When his father was killed during World War II, he went to work at 10, sweeping up hair in a barbershop to help support his family. He later joined the Greek army, and after his military service was completed, he went to work as a barber.

Rodgers Forge Elementary School Principal Missy Fanshaw has seen her fair share of triumph this summer. Her son, Patrick, is a junior attackman on Loyola University's national champion lacrosse team.
