Jordan Williams, owner and CEO of owner of Jewelz of Jordan,  is an accomplished business person, author, and motivational speaker.  Her company, Jewelz of Jordan is based in Upper Marlboro, and sells custom, hand-made pieces across the country.  The Greater Prince George’s County Business Roundtable named this amazing, 12 year old young lady as their CEO of the year.  Of course she’s the youngest to achieve this feat.  She spoke with WJLA news about first impressions of her company,  “They usually think it’s my mom, but then they see me and I shake their hand and I say ‘I’m Gabrielle Jordan Williams from Jewels by Jordan’ and they say ‘Ohhh, you’re jewels of Jordan.’ And their eyes get wide and they are like ‘oh my gosh, you are so young,’”  Gabrielle said of being the youngest CEO of the year, “It was just so great to see that I’m the youngest one ever and I am basically leaving a legacy for other young children to come and they can receive an award as well.”

RamsheadRamshead is opeining the Ramshead Center Stage, a 500 set new music venue on August 30th.  With scheduled bands/acts such as  Sister Hazel, Chuck Negron, Foghat, and Patty Smyth and Scandal already scheduled for shows, the new Ramshead is probably a venue I will not be visiting.  Think they planned it that way?
A Wednesday afternoon fire in Capitol Heights has claimed the young life of a 5 year old girl.  The fire took place around 4:30p, at a duplex home in the 6300 block of Carrington Court in the Oak Chapel neighborhood.  The girl’s 24 year old  father made it out of the home on his own and had burn injuries to more than 50 percent of his body, but told responding firefighters the two children were still trapped inside the home in a second-story bedroom, the Gazette reportedThe two children were transported to Prince George’s Hospital , where the 5-year-old girl succumbed to her burns and smoke inhalation injuries around 8 p.m. Her uncle and father remain in critical condition and are being treated at the Burn Unit at MedStar Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C.   Fire Investigators have determined the cause to be accidental and attributed to an overloaded electrical circuit.  Oddly though, there were two working smoke alarms in the house.  The fire began in the first floor living room that is just inside the front door of the house. Fire loss is estimated at $150,000.  Prince George’s County Fire Department reports that at last check, the 24-year-old male and the 15-year-old male remained in critical condition at the Burn Unit.
