DeMatha graduate filming fantasy web video series in Bowie.
Hikers walking the paths of Whitemarsh Park last September had the chance to encounter something other than the usual flora and fauna of the area—they found themselves in a fantasy world. What would warrior nuns, ambitious kings and a kidnapping plot designed to halt a war be doing in one of Bowie’s parks? It's all part of a special fantasy web series from the mind of filmmaker Francis Abbey. Abbey, a 35-year-old former Bowie resident thought the lush grounds of Whitemarsh Park were the perfect spot to shoot his current project, The Broken Continent. “It’s kind of a really well-kept secret,” said Abbey, a Dematha High School grad who now lives in Hyattsville. “Behind the playhouse is a wonderful series of trails.” With the city’s …

What do you remember about the days when John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo were on the loose?
Tuesday, October 2, 2012
Today, Oct. 2, is the 10-year anniversary of what became known as the DC sniper case—a horrific chapter in local history that began in Montgomery County and riveted the nation. Only one of the attacks was in Prince George's County— outside of Benjamin Tasker Middle School in Bowie. A 13-year-old Iran Brown was shot around 8:09 a.m. as he arrived to school. Brown survived the attack and later testified at the trials. It's hard to describe to those who weren't here what it was like to fear a random bullet during routine trips to the grocery store or gas station, or to drive past playgrounds and parks empty of children, runners and bike riders. The cold calculation of the crime was unthinkable at the time. The perpetrators, John Allen …

The Prince George's County Council is set to hold a Nov. 1 public hearing on redistricting followed by a vote.
A plan to redraw the political districts in Prince George's County cleared a major hurdle earlier this week when the Prince George's County Council set a Nov. 1 public hearing for the plan, to be followed by a final vote. According to federal law, redrawing district lines occurs every 10 years in accordance with U.S. Census data. The nine districts in Prince George’s County must be equal in population and not change more or less than 5 percent in population, according to law. County planners have been holding hearings for months for input on how to redraw district lines. A final draft emerged for introduction on Tuesday. Council members said they wanted to ensure communities in the county stayed intact within districts. "We went with the …
