"She's wise beyond her years" is your next step. I know you can do it! It will be easier with your strong family bonds. Things are always alot harder to achieve when you go it alone.

Capitol Heights is a very ghetto area overrun with gangs and drugs. Even by the standards of PG County it is very bad. People are shot there every day. It will only get worse as Washington, D.C. gentrifies and the slums are relocated into Maryland.

I was with your brother this weekend and felt bad about the stuff I said about you or to you.As soon as this deal is closed all of this foolishness will be over. I can`t wait. Before you write stuff please have the correct info and not listen to ppl who think they know my business. Have a great day Latoya.

Rule of thumb when I moved to the DC Metro: stay away from most parts of PG county (my husband grew up part of life there while his dad worked at NASA) and especially away from (no kidding) cities with two words: Capitol Heights.

Capitol Heights has its challenges but the crime is not as bad as you say. The fact is with two Metroís and a lot of free land it will take courage from the citizens and vision from the local government to lead the citizen in a new and more rewarding direction. Gangs and drugs are their but itís also in Terrapin land where ever you may live but a little more uncover. Capitol Heights will not be the relocated slum for the area because were on a mission to improve the area. I will give this little secret. You don't read about Capitol Heights local government having external or internal issue on the news or in the paper and other than crime reports you see positive actions happening in the community. So Terrapin that from the one who knows Capitol Heights ""THE MAYOR"" I hope you buy property soon before the prices start to rise and read that Capitol Heights is the best place to live in the area.

This isn't your Husband Capitol Heights and you should spend more tiem reseaching the area again instead of using a 20 year model. Maybe this is not an area for your family but it is a great area.
