WASHINGTON, D.C. — Angel Reese was a one-girl cleanup crew Saturday night to lead the United States Future Stars to a 115-80 defeat of the Capital All-Stars at the 45th Capital Classic at St. John’s College High (Washington, D.C.).

Reese, a sophomore at St. Frances (Baltimore, Md.), had 22 points and 19 rebounds, with many of her points coming on her own putbacks.

“I did everything that I usually do, rebound and if I get a block, I’ll push the ball and attack the basket,” Reese said. “I missed a few layups that I should have made, but I did put them back.”

While Reese was the winning team’s MVP, Bishop McNamara (Forestville, Md.) junior wing Jakia Brown-Turner was the leading scorer for the Future Stars with 24 points.

by Bruce Branch

Staff Writer

The place where the life of Dona Elizabeth Ferguson, a hard-working mother and grandmother, came to an end June 16 is now the place where residents and police are working together in a stand against crime.

Four suspects, including one who had been released on bond and in home detention, have been arrested and charged with murder in the case.

10 Cities Hit By The Million-Dollar Housing Boom

Time was, a million dollars seemed to evoke so much to everyday Americans. Swanky vacations in the French Riviera. Bespoke suits and garages filled with Bentleys and Mercedes-Benz roadsters. Corporate titans sipping champagne (mixed with the tears of oppressed workers). And perhaps one thing most of all: big, beautiful, luxury homes.

But let’s get back to present-day reality. A million bucks, however impressive a sum, is no longer synonymous with mansions, or even particularly high-end housing, in much of the country. In fact, there’s now a huge discrepancy in what you can get for a tidy seven-figure price tag across the United States. In Atlanta, it could indeed net you a gigantic mansion in the exclusive suburbs...

The 20 Hottest Real Estate Markets In America For January 2018

As we near the end of the first month of the new year, it’s time to take a big step back—and to take stock of the situation in real estate markets across the country. Will we see our predictions for 2018 starting to come true already?

Well, it does seem like change is in the air: After peaking at $275,000 in summer 2017, the nationwide median home list price is expected to remain relatively steady at $269,000. That’s 8% higher than one year ago—but in early and mid-2017 we saw double-digit price increases.

Now, we’re not saying that prices aren’t still crazily high...
