A former vice president of Hebron Savings Bank in Wicomico County was sentenced to 18 months in prison for embezzlement and ordered to pay $456,665 in restitution, federal prosecutors said Thursday. Wanda Henderson, 56, of Westover had used her position at the bank, including her role as executive assistant to president, to manipulate bank records and receive fraudulent loans over a period from 2005 until April 2011, according to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland. Over that time, Henderson had secured 20 fraudulent loans for herself and family members worth more than $680,000, with most of that ending in default, prosecutors said.

Westover -- Sen. J. Lowell Stoltzfus, a devout Mennonite, is seen as one of the gentlest members of the General Assembly. Balding, with big, warm brown eyes and glasses, he teaches Sunday school classes to adults and talks about his love of a cappella singing. But Stoltzfus has been steamed lately, and he isn't hiding it. As one of four Republicans on the special committee investigating whether Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. fired state workers for political reasons, he is fighting to make sure the eight Democrats on the panel don't turn the hearings into an election-year escapade that makes the governor look bad. Though Stoltzfus, 56, denies he's Ehrlich's point man in the committee, he uses the word "we" frequently during the group's meetings.
