Minnie Craddock , a resident of Carrol Manor in Hyattsville, celebrated her 100th birthday on Dec. 22. The festivities included entertainment, as well as birthday wishes from President and Mrs. Reagan. Craddock is known as the "animal doctor," having earned her reputation in the neighborhood for caring for any of the creatures children would bring her. Craddock said that her "genes must be right" since both her parents lived well into their nineties. Student Wins Scholarship
