FORT WASHINGTON, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County officials have laid out a $15 million plan to shore up the ground in a Fort Washington neighborhood and allow most of the 28 property owners affected by a landslide earlier this year to return home.
Unfortunately the county has only $11 million to implement the plan.
At a meeting Wednesday with homeowners in the Piscataway Hills neighborhood, county officials expressed hope that the state could fill the funding gap in the county’s proposed plan.
If enacted, the county would buy six homes deemed unsalvageable, and do repair work on an eroded slope and roadway to make the remaining 22 homes habitable.
Heavy rains in May triggered a landslide that rendered the affected homes unsafe.
Jessica Kartalija will have more of this story at 5 & 6 p.m.

(AllHipHop News) With the world being in the year 2014 that means that children of deceased legends from the 70′s and 80′s are now grown and able to portray their parents in biopics. According to Richard Pryor’s son, he has been so impressed by Nick Cannon’s dedication to playing his father in an upcoming biopic that he has changed his mind on the rapper/actor.
Pryor Jr initially did not believe Cannon would be able to adequately capture his father on screen for the upcoming Lee Daniels biopic about his deceased father. However, in a recent interview with Daily Mail, the son of one of the greatest comedians of all time stated that
He did the small thing of using his left hand instead of his right hand, he picked up smoking to try and emulate my dad, he’s let his hair grow out. He’s looking into who my dad…

What started out as a simple favor, turned into a beautiful act of Internet kindness for one dad on Reddit.
Nathen Steffel posted a photo of his infant daughter, Sophia, on the site with one request: ?My daughter recently passed away after a long battle in the children?s hospital. Since she was in the hospital her whole life we never were able to get a photo without all her tubes. Can someone remove the tubes from this photo??
He explained that Sophia passed away in Cincinnati?s Children?s Hospital after suffering a hepatic hemangioma in her liver at just 6 weeks old.
What happened next stands as a testament that there really is good in this world. Users posted their photoshopped, painted or drawn portraits to the thread for the father to have.

Apollo’s Terms Of Prison Release: Five Years Probation…Work At Lawful Occupation… Notify Court If Acting As An Informant!
Originally posted on STOOPID HOUSEWIVES:
Apollo is basically screwed. Any money he makes in prison must be applied to the $1.9 million in restitution… and, he can’t move a muscle without notifying his probation officer.
IF Phaedra divorces Apollo, that screw is wound tighter. Doubt that Phaedra would like to live in a home which could be invaded by the Feds at any time.
MOST interesting condition upon Apollo’s release:
“The defendant shall not enter into any agreement to act as an informer or a special agent of a law enforcement agency without the permission of the court.”
The big question is: Who is going to write that required report which Apollo must submit to his PO every month?

32-year-old Tamecca Haskins lost her life by a single gunshot to the chest during an anti-gun violence rally on Lefferts Place in Brooklyn, NY. One other victim is critically injured. “…[T]his should never of happened. My baby, like I said she was outgoing. She was a hard worker, she struggled through school with lupus,” said Haskins’ mother, Vanita Denise Haskins. Haskins was her mother’s only daughter, and she leaves behind a seven-year-old daughter who is unable to understand exactly what happened to her mom.
While the family is keeping it together, they’re shaken by this random and devastating tragedy. Many people attended the rally and Community Advocate Tony Herbert believes that is the key to finding Haskins’ killer. “Somebody saw something and we always try to encourage. That’s the purpose of the vigils and…
