In Memory of Former Prince George's County (MD) County Executive, Wayne K. Curry By Karen L. Bune

 The death of former Prince George’s County (MD) County Executive, Wayne K. Curry, is devastating news.  At age 63, he became the victim of terminal lung cancer.  A smoker for many years, the impact of those actions caused him to publicly urge others, in the final months of his life, to stop smoking to avoid the fate that befell him. 

Curry was an ambitious, dedicated and committed public servant who always wanted to make a difference.  He was what Prince George’s needed in troubled…

As an alumnus of American University and a 2011 AU alumni award recipient, as a professional with a long career in the criminal justice system, and as an Adjunct Professor at two universities, I am appalled at the behavior of Montgomery County, Maryland Judge Audrey Creighton.  Her association with a convicted felon, Rickley Senning, who she represented as a public defender coupled with her live-in, intimate relationship with him is outrageous. 

 Allegedly, she is the victim of…

The arrest of former Chief Investigator, James F. Artis, of the Prince George’s County (MD) State’s Attorney’s Office for second-degree assault and fourth-degree sex offense comes as a surprise to those who formerly worked with him and those who are acquainted with him.  Artis, a former police chief and military veteran, outwardly appeared to be a professional who desired to be respectful and appropriate in carrying out his duties.  He always demonstrated a willingness to be helpful to his…

Hi Karen,

I joined last week and was browsing through all the names. Looks like you have had a lengthy career just as I have. I believe I have you by one year. Thought it would be interesting to visit.

Thanks Don

Hi Karen,

Well I don't know if I have this messaging thing figured out yet. SO, if you get it let me know and if I don't hear back I will suspect I have not properly sent it.

Looks like you are one busy Lady. I would like to attend the memorial but it will not work with my schedule this time. I was wanting to ride the bicycle route last year for the memorial wall but couldn't make it either.

I haven't been that direction but once in my life and that was when I flew into Virginia prior to going to Iraq.

I'm not going to write much this time in case I'm not sending this correctly.

No. Unfortunately we don't have any pets, but if we get one, I will keep him in mind. I wanted to thank you for the very nice article that you wrote about my Brother in Law. (TJ Bomba)
