Helga "Lollo" Lieselotte Pennewell, who escaped Soviet-occupied East Germany with her family for Maryland's Eastern Shore, where she spent 52 years as an educator and nationally acclaimed activist, died last week. She was 84. Ms. Pennewell was born to Alfred and Elsa Dallmann in Muhlhausen, Thuringia, Germany, on April 1, 1929. As a teenager, she qualified for Germany's Olympic swim team but never competed because the 1944 Games were canceled because of World War II. Ms. Pennewell attended Staatliche Oberschuk, a college in her hometown, where she earned the equivalent of a bachelor's degree in design and dressmaking.

SNOW HILL - If a tree grows in the forest but no one is around to measure it, can it be a champion? This is not one of those chin-stroking metaphysical riddles. There's an easy answer: Nope. Which is why Salisbury University ecologist Joan Maloof ventured recently into a wooded Eastern Shore swamp. Armed with a tape measure, the 52-year-old scientist was on a mission to gauge the size of a soaring black gum tree she had spotted last year. The dimensions would tell whether this tree was mighty enough to dethrone the reigning state champ black gum in Montgomery County.
