Christopher Van Hollen Sr., a retired Foreign Service officer and ambassador to Sri Lanka, died of Alzheimer's disease complications Jan. 30 at the Washington Home and Hospice. The former Baltimore resident was 90. Born in Baltimore and raised in Cedarcroft, he was the grandson of George Henry Van Hollen, a seafood packer and owner of the Atlantic Packing Co. The family also developed the Cedarcroft section of North Baltimore and lent its name to Hollen Road. His father, Donald Van Hollen, was a Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. employee who later worked at the family's seafood business.

Maryland Democratic Rep. Chris Van Hollen will join with gun control campaigners and religious leaders in a rally against gun violence on the National Mall Saturday. The advocates plan to march in silence at 11 a.m. from the Capitol to the Washington Monument where Van Hollen and others will speak. "I have long been a supporter of common sense measures to prevent gun violence," Van Hollen said in a statement. "Banning assault-style weapons, restricting high-capacity magazines, and implementing a system for universal background checks are just a few of the ways we can help make our communities safer.

Two Baltimore Police officers and a young police explorer were injured near an M&T Bank Stadium parking lot on Thursday night when the police van they were in was struck head on by an oncoming vehicle, police said. The collision occurred about 10 p.m. at the intersection of West Ostend and Warner streets, at the south end of the Ravens football stadium, police said. The driver of the oncoming vehicle was also treated for minor injuries, police said. Both officers and the explorer - a participant in a departmental education program for youth aged 14 to 20 - were taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center with what were believed late Thursday to be non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Pallotti Early Learning Center's 1999 low-mileage, light gold, Dodge minivan was stolen from their parking lot on Dec. 1 or 2. When I received the notification from the school to be on the lookout, I took it seriously as a parent. As a working member of the communications and marketing community, however, I realized we can all do more than look for it ourselves. We all have friends, acquaintances and coworkers who we talk to on Facebook or follow on Twitter.  I'd like us, as a community of parents, to engage the larger Laurel community in raising awareness for what's happened. It may only take a "friend of a friend" to lead to a tip that helps Pallotti Early Learning Center retrieve its van. With that in mind, we've taken the liberty of writing a tweet and Facebook post for you to share if you're able.  Please view them as a guideline and change them to best suit your needs.

I find Rep. Chris Van Hollen's comments very ironic about Rep. John Boehner wanting to delay on the fiscal cliff until he is re-elected Speaker of the House ("Conservatives battle Obama," Dec. 13). Isn't this the same Rep. Van Hollen, the super-committee member, who had an opportunity to craft a deal more than one year ago? What did he do during negotiations? How was he compromising in the process last year? I think he didn't. Asking a Maryland Democrat to compromise is unheard of, after all. Can he give insight as to what would be a fair and equitable solution?

As the fiscal cliff looms, two of Maryland's most influential congressmen have a message for those looking to the federal workforce for more savings: Look somewhere else. "Federal workers have already been asked to sacrifice as part of the budget cuts that have already taken place," Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the top Democrat on the House budget committee, told reporters last week. "Now is the time to ask others to help share responsibility for reducing our deficit. " Van Hollen spoke days after Rep. Steny Hoyer wrote an op-ed urging negotiators: "Don't Throw Feds Over 'Cliff.'" "Over the past two years, federal employees have repeatedly faced threats of a government shutdown that would stop their paychecks with virtually no notice," Hoyer, the No. 2 Democrat in the House, wrote in Federal Times.

As Maryland Rep. Chris Van Hollen Jr. eyes a run for the U.S. Senate in 2014, readers deserve to know the truth about his record on Israel and Iran. Some readers seem to believe that democracy ends on Election Day, and that afterward citizens give up the right to criticize their elected officials. I disagree. As an investigative reporter - and as Congressman Van Hollen's Republican opponent in the last election - I closely examined his record. It is true Mr. Van Hollen was a co-sponsor of legislation to authorize U.S. support for Iron Dome, the missile defense system that helped shield Israeli citizens from terrorist rockets fired from Gaza.
