Rookies pitcher Leanna Mayor releases the ball in her team’s 14-7 win over Budweiser Select Monday night.

By Andrew Knowlton Staff Writer Rookies coach Jamie Tennyson says he has been looking for wins against Division I teams in the St. Mary’s County Women’s Softball League all season long. Monday night at Chancellor’s Run, Tennyson got what he wished for, as his team upended Budweiser Select, 14-7. “I’ve been telling the girls all season long that the Rookies are a Division II team and we’re battling Division I teams all year,” Tennyson said. “We had a chance to pull it off tonight and we did.” See Rookie Win page B-

By Andrew Knowlton Staff Writer About 600 area swimmers competed in the 2007 Southern Maryland Swim League Invitational Championship at the Wildewood pool July 28. The meet began early Saturday, after the annual Carol Serb Award was given out to one member of each of the six teams that displays the best sportsmanship. The award recipients this year were Cameron Paul (Wildewood Marlins,) Jamie Branaman (Great Mills Tritons,) Taylor Ulrich (Breton Bay Sea Devils,) Daniel Kraft (Elks,) Brooke Prince (Swan Point Stingrays,) and

Devin Bohanan (Town Creek Sharks). The Carol Serb award is one of the highlights every year, according to Wildewood coach Robbie Davis. The names of the award winners are kept very secret each year to build up the excitement. “The kids don’t know who’s going to win the award, so it’s always a big surprise,” said Davis, who has coached the Wildewood squad for nine years. “The kids get excited to find out who’s going to get it.” Coaches pick one swimmer on their team to give the award to each year. Every team has its own criteria for the award, according to Susan ShanSee Swim Championship page B-

Ryken Rising: One School’s Journey to the Top in One of the Nation’s Best Athletic Conferences By Andrew Knowlton Staff Writer Just three years ago, the St. Mary’s Ryken Knights competed against other St. Mary’s County public schools such as Chopticon, Great Mills and Leonardtown in the Southern Maryland Athletic Conference (SMAC). When the regular season was over, the Braves, Hornets and Raiders went on to the playoffs with hopes and dreams of maybe winning a state title. The Knights, on the other hand, hung up their uniforms and put another season in the books. It’s not that the Knights didn’t make the cut, but because they were the only private school in a public school athletic conference, Ryken was not allowed to compete in the post-season. Today, Ryken is in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC) -- one of the strongest athletic conferences in the nation -- and it hasn’t taken long for the Knights to establish themselves as one of the top teams in that conference. In a typical week, Ryken might go up against St. John’s College High School, Gonzaga College High School and DeMatha Catholic High School. All of these schools have had nationally ranked athletic teams in the past 10 years. DeMatha, most notably, has won 150 league titles

ing NBA and NFL players. Sports Illustrated recently ranked DeMatha the second best high school athletics program in the nation. For eight straight years, De-

Waldorf, Md. – Skanska USA Building Inc. will take part in today’s ground breaking ceremony for Regency Furniture Baseball Stadium, a sports facility the company is constructing. The stadium will be the future home of the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, a new professional baseball team that will play in an independent league unaffiliated with the National Baseball Association. Completion of the stadium is expected in May of 2008. Plans call for the stadium to seat about 3,000 fans,

Sports Ryken Rising Continued from page B- Matha’s boys’ lacrosse team won the league title. Enter Ryken Risers. In 2007, St. Mary’s took down DeMatha with a 13-12 win in the conference championship after winning 19 straight games. Several Knight graduates from the 2007 squad are going on to play at top-notch Division I programs in the fall. The softball team also made history as they went on to the conference championship for the first time in school history. The Knight’s ace pitcher, Amanda Hanson, will be attending Mount St. Mary’s University on a full ride. The men’s basketball team had its best season in the conference in 2006-2007, going 16-11 and staying competitive against every team day in and day out. In January, the Knights took on DeMatha and lost by just three points in a home thriller. Star forward John Flowers, who led the team in scoring, will be playing basketball at West Virginia University in the fall. These are just a few examples of the strides St. Mary’s Ryken has made athletically in the WCAC. According to principal Rick Wood, the Knights have earned a reputation in the league as the team to look out for in the next few years. “We’ve gotten to be known as the ‘risers’ in the league,”

he said. “I think because we play in such a competitive league, we step up to the level of competition.” Because the Knights have the opportunity to take part in postseason play, athletes have higher goals and standards, Wood added. “The players really enjoy being able to play in championship games,” he said. “Also, playing in these post-season games gives them more exposure to play at the college level.” Other schools in the league are noticing that the Knights have quickly moved up the ranks. “Their program is moving up very, very rapidly,” said George Leftwich, Athletic Director at Archbishop Carroll High School, one of the twelve schools in the conference. Leftwich praised Danny Sancomb, coach of the boys’ basketball team and former athletic director. “Danny’s done a great job bringing them up with that. They’re in the hunt now,” added Leftwich. Sancomb recently took a different position at Ryken and gave up the Athletic Director’s role to Michael Vosburgh, who will also serve as an assistant coach for the new football team. Still, Sancomb will continue to coach the boys’ basketball team. “We look forward to

bringing [Vosburgh] on,” Wood said. “He’s coached college for many years and he also taught college courses. He basically taught AD’s to be AD’s, so he’s going to be a good addition to the staff.” As the Knights continue to move up the ranks, they also have plans to build their athletic program. Last season, Ryken expanded their number of teams by starting up a freshman football team. This year, they will also have a junior varsity team, and by 2008, they hope to have a varsity team with a full WCAC schedule. “We’ve had more participation than we ever imagined,” Wood said. “We thought about 30 boys would come out for the freshman team last year, but there were about 40. This year, close to 90 showed up, so it’s been very positive.” In its first season in the WCAC, the boys’ basketball team didn’t win a single game in conference play. Two years later, the Knights were handing out losses to some of Maryland, D.C. and Virginia’s top basketball teams. Wood hopes that the football team can have similar results. “I’m going to be very optimistic… we want to be very competitive,” he said. We aimed high in other sports and we achieved a lot of goals, and we want to aim high with the football program as well.”

Rookie Win Continued from page B- The Rookies came out of the gates hitting and didn’t let up until the final out was made. In the top of the first, the visiting Rookies jumped on the scoreboard with backto-back triples by Judi Tennyson and Heather Quade. Melanie Guy drove in Quade with single to put the Rookies up 2-0. The Rookies defense came up big all night as well, and they headed into the second inning without giving up a run. In the top of the second, they added to their lead with an RBI single by Judi Tennyson. Budweiser Select managed to keep the game close by driving in two runs in the bottom half of the second. Brenda Wolcott led off with a stand up triple, and was driven home on a single by Kristy Kyle. Lisa Quill later singled to center, driving in Karen Macrae. Budweiser Select then turned on their defensive game, forcing the Rookies into a three-up-three down third inning. Riding a wave of momentum, Budweiser Select took a short-lived lead in the bottom of the third. Kristine Mattingley got things sparked Budweiser Select with a two-out double to left, which was followed by a single from Abell, putting runners at the corners. Wolcott then knocked an RBI single, and Kyle hit a two RBI double, putting Budweiser Select up 6-3. Budweiser’s only lead of the game was quickly lost in the fourth inning, as the Rookie bats heated up again. Mindy Morris was walked to start off the inning, and then moved to third on a single by Edi Hood. April Tennyson then loaded the bases with a basehit of her own. With the top of the lineup coming up to bat, the Rookies were in good shape to take the lead back. The next batter, Stacey Hill was also walked, scoring a run. “Tonight wasn’t our best

night pitching,” Budweiser Select coach George Delaney said. “If our pitcher throws two or three walks in a game, that’s a lot. Tonight she must have had about 10 walks.” As Budweiser struggled on the mound, the Rookies took advantage, adding two more runs on RBI singles from Leanna Mayor and Guy. Budweiser cut their deficit to one run in the bottom of the fourth, but the Rookies made their move and started pulling away in the top of the fifth. They tallied four runs to take an 11-6 lead. Amanda Bearden started the inning off with a single down the right field line, which was followed by a single from Morris. Bearden tagged up and moved to third on a deep fly ball, to put runners at the corners. April Tennyson and Hill hit consecutive singles, adding another run to the scoreboard. With the bases loaded, Mayor knocked in an RBI single and

Judi Tennyson got a two RBI double. The Rookies continued their strong defensive play for the remainder of the game as they managed to shake Budweiser Select off their heels. According to Jamie Tennyson, the key was playing staying focused on the fundamentals of the game. “The girls played fundamental softball,” he said. “They weren’t making any mistakes, they kept the ball in front of them and they just stuck to the basics of the game.” With two outs on them in the top of the sixth, the Rookies were still able to put two more runs on the board, with Hood, April Tennyson and Hill all contributing offensively. “We scored a lot of runs on two outs,” Jamie Tennyson said. “I think we had about six runs on two outs in the game. When you get those, that’s a big plus.” Jessica Guy drove in the Rookie’s last run of the game for the 14-7 final. The Rookies made several tough defensive plays -- a 6-4-3 double play and a line drive snag by Bearden -- toward the end of the game to keep Budweiser Select from coming back. “We played seven innings of softball tonight,” said Jamie Tennyson. “That was the key.” The Rookies improve to 11-8 with the win while Budweiser Select is 14-4. “We got in the mode tonight that we weren’t going to have to execute to beat them. We were just going to go in and win,” said Delaney. “But they’re a pretty decent team and they hit the ball well.” Both teams have four games remaining in the season. The Rookies will play all Division II teams as the season winds down.

In the Knowl A Class Act in Keeping it Right By Andrew Knowlton Staff Writer These days, it seems like the only news coming from the sports world is bad news. Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick is in trouble with the law for his alleged involve-

ment in a huge dog-fighting ring. As I write this, Barry Bonds is one home run away from tying Hank Aaron’s all-time home run record, but everyone knows that the San Francisco slugger took steroids. The basketball world re-

Swim Championship Continued from page B- non, a Breton Bay parent representative, but every year the award has been given to a swimmer “who exemplifies sportsmanship and fair play at practice and at swim meets. The award speaks more to the type of person the swimmer is rather than to the type of athlete he or she is,” she said. This year, Davis chose Cameron Paul for his sportsmanship, team spirit, and overall effort, among other things. “He’s one of the leaders of our team and the boys look up to him,” Davis said of Paul. “He works hard at practice and he’s a role model for the younger boys.” Town Creek coach Laura Mancini gave the award to Devin Bohanan. “I wanted to recognize Devin because he always helps out and he always puts in his best effort,” Mancini said. “He never gives his sec-

ond best. He always goes 100 percent.” While team scores are not calculated at the end of the meet, the competition in the pool is at the highest level of the summer. The six teams have been competing against each other all summer in preparation for the championship meet. Each team competes against the other five teams twice, adding up to 12 dual meets. During the season, there is also one fun relay meet, one Coaches’ Age Group Meet (generally for beginning swimmers) and the Invitational, which is for swimmers that have competed in at least two events without getting disqualified. “It’s really great to see the kids who have worked hard all summer to come here and do well,” Davis said. Mancini added that the meet is also a great chance for her team to come together.

cently found out that one of the NBA’s referees was gambling on games that he officiated and intentionally made bad calls to affect the outcome of those games. Every year in the Tour de France, one of the stage winners gets busted for doping. Last year, it wasn’t just one “As long as the kids are having fun, that’s what it’s all about,” she said. Top finishers on each team are also awarded ribbons, another highlight of the meet, according to Mancini. “We give out a lot of ribbons and the kids get really excited about that. It’s a big confidence booster and they really enjoy it,” she said. The meet was broken up into five sessions: butterfly, backstroke, individual medley, freestyle, and breaststroke, which included several heats for different age groups, which range from five to 17. “We set two goals for the kids,” Davis said. “One of them is to get your best time in each event and the other is to win your heat, which is a big deal. If you win your heat, that means you’ve really competed well against the people around you.” This year’s meet had several record breaking performances, including five new records being set by Dean Pinno from the Town Creek Swim

stage winner, it was the overall winner, Floyd Landis. Nowadays, it’s about “keeping it real,” but whatever happened to “keeping it right?” Where did the dignity go? Where did all the good people go? Where did all the Cal Ripken’s go? Well, there’s only one Cal Ripken and there will only ever be one Cal Ripken. But maybe some of the athletes (and officials) that I’ve mentioned should look at the “Iron Man’s” career for some pointers. On Sunday, in Cooperstown, New York, Ripken and Tony Gwynn (an eight time batting champion) were inducted into the Hall of Fame in front of an estimated 75,000 people -- the largest crowd to ever attend induction day. 75,000 people!!! That’s about six times the attendance at a D.C. United game -- just to watch a couple old baseball players give speeches!?!

Section B -  Not exactly, Gwynn and Ripken are arguably two of the most classy and hard working guys to ever play the game of baseball. Ripken played 21 years in the league and didn’t miss a game for 16 consecutive seasons, setting a new record of 2,632 games played in a row. Talk about work ethic! “I always looked at it as showing up to work everyday,” he said in his speech. My prediction is, Ripken’s record will never be broken. It’s one of the few records that will never require an asterisk next to it. During Ripken’s 21 years in the league, there was never a single story in the news about Ripken getting a D.U.I, taking steroids, or fighting pitbulls. That’s because -- unlike many athletes these days -Ripken knew that, as a professional athlete, a lot of young eyes would be watching him.

In his speech at the Hall of Fame induction Sunday, Ripken said, “Whether we like it or not, as big leaguers, we are role models. The only question is, ‘Will it be positive or negative?’” This is a question that not enough athletes are asking themselves these days. Ripken is constantly digging into his pocket to make donations to research Lou Gehrig’s disease. Along with his brother, he formed the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation, which gives underprivileged children the chance to attend baseball camps. Cal Ripken gave his best effort on the field and he gives his best effort off the field. In his speech, Ripken also said, “We are the ambassadors for the future. We should all try to make this world a better place for the next generation.” Call me up when Barry Bonds says that.

Pinno, the younger brother of a second-team AllMet swimmer from Leonardtown (now at Towson,) broke records in the 25 yard backstroke, 25 yard freestyle, 25 yard butterfly, 25 m freestyle, and the 25 m butterfly. “I’ve been feeling good,” Pinno said. “My brother is a swimmer so I take all the credit off of him. I’ve been

swimming for five years. My favorite stroke is the butterfly but my best stroke is the freestyle.” Pinno’s teammate Chris Kahl also had a record breaking performance, winning the Boys 9-10 50 m freestyle in a time of 35.06. “I’m just happy,” Kahl said after the 50m freestyle. “If I get first in the 25m breaststroke, I’ll get all first

place ribbons. I’m pretty excited about the record, I’m used to getting first, so when I get second, it makes me work harder.” Two more records were set in the meet. Mairyn Branaman of the Triton Swim Team took first in the 50 yard freestyle and the 50 yard butterfly in the Girls 9-10 age group.

with a maximum capacity of 6,000. “We’re eager to begin working on this facility,” said Thomas Huggins, Skanska’s Project Manager. “we’ve completed many stadium projects in the past, and it is always special to us to be part of a project that will bring fun and entertainment to a community, as well as boost its economy. The Blue Crabs will be a terrific addition to Waldorf for many years to come.” Skanska, one of the world’s leading construction groups, has built numerous stadiums and sporting arena projects throughout the U.S. Some of those include New Meadowlands Stadium, home of the NFL’s New York Giants and New York Jets; Reliant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Houston Texans; Philips Arena, home of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks and the NHL’s Atlanta Thrashers.

The fish in Southern Maryland are biting. Croaker and bluefish are in abundance in both the Patuxent and Potomac Rivers. Most croakers being caught are between 10-15 inches and are found at Three-Legged Bowie and around the naval base. Bluefish are weighing in at an average of five to six pounds from Cedar Point, Ship’s Channel and the Point Lookout pier. Trollers using smaller, lighter rigs are catching more Rockfish between Calvert Cliffs and the Gas Docks, but surfcasters are getting a good amount of bites from rocks off of Cedar Point Hollow and Goose Creek. Larger rockfish, some up to 30 inches, are being found at the mouth of Coan River and around St. George’s Island. Rocks are becoming a great catch this season but remember to read

the regulations on sizes and how many of which size can be taken home. Large-sized Flounder have been caught at Corn Harbor and Cedar Point. Ship’s Channel has also proved itself as a nice place for minnow drifters to catch flounders in excess of 20 inches. Meeting the regulation of 15 inches for flounder is not difficult this year but only two a day can be taken home by any one fisher. The Gas Docks and the entire Patuxent River are great places to fish for Spot. Half Pone Point, Little Cove Point and Cove Point are also producing plentiful spot for fishers. Although mostly smaller in size, regulation bass can always be caught at St. Mary’s Lake.

St. Mary’s county had a good showing at last week’s Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge sailing regatta. The three-day event was sailed in breezy conditions July 22nd – 24th in the Chesapeake Bay between Cedar Point and Cove Point. “Screwpile”, as it is called by the sailors, is put on annually by the Solomons-based Southern Maryland Sailing Association for keel boats twenty-two feet in length and up. Quite a few of the locals actually forgo sailing in order to volunteer as race officials or work in other jobs supporting the event. However, several sailors who did compete made the local organization proud. John Edwards of California skippered his J-29 Rhumb Punch to a second place finish in he PHRF 7 class. Edwards and Rhumb Punch had their class in four straight Screwpiles leading up to last year. The boat also finished second-in-class in 2006. This year Rhumb Punch was grouped in the PHRF-7 handicap class with several Tripp 26’s, a lightweight boat known for its downwind surfing capabilities. App-arrent Tripp, a boat from Annapolis, narrowly beat Rhumb Punch in the final class standings. Edwards said strong winds throughout the regatta helped App-arrent Tripp. “They are very good, have good crew work. We just couldn’t keep them off our backs in a breeze,” he said, adding that a Tripp 26 surfs better in windy conditions than a J-29. Another St. Mary’s boat with a strong showing was Bob, a Colgate 26 captained by Mike Ironmonger of Dameron. Bob lost the competitive PHRF-9 class to Horizon from Alexandria, Va. Terry Wanner’s Iretsu finished second in the non-spinnaker division. Iretsu is a Beneteau First 42. Wanner lives in California. Little Lattitudes, an Antrim 27 sailed by Jeff and Donna Moore of Hollywood, missed a third-place finish in PHRF-5 by just a few points. A total of 117 boats actually made it to the starting line for the first race a week ago

Sunday. About 100 of those craft came from out-of-town to compete, but at least two dozen boats had some St. Mary’s countians as crewmembers. The regatta was headquartered at the Solomons Holiday Inn Select, and for three nights the hotel hosted post-race parties and awards ceremonies. LG Raley of Hollywood is the event Chairman. “I’d say it was the best Screwpile ever,” Raley said after it was all over. “The Holiday Inn loved it so much, they want to do it again. We’ve already been invited back.” This year marked the 15th running of Screwpile. For the first 13 years, Zahniser’s Yachting Center in Solomons hosted the parties and awards ceremonies. By last year, the regatta had become too large for Zahniser’s to handle, and the party tent and awards were relegated to the Holiday Inn parking lot. This year the courtyard near the swimming pool was utilized. Complete race results can be found at www.screwpile.net.

“A New World”: “Under The Stars” Screening

All Creatures Great And Small By Brittany Hailer Contributing Writer

Join an “Under the Stars” screening of Terrence Malick’s “A New World” at Sotterley Plantation on Friday, August 3, 2007 at 7:30 p.m. to commemorate the 400-year anniversary of Capt. John Smith’s voyages on the Chesapeake. Set amidst the first encounter of European and Native American cultures during the founding of Jamestown, Virginia in 1607, this sweeping adventure stars Colin Farrell

as John Smith and Q’orianka Kilcher as Pocahontas. In Malick’s unique interpretation of the classic tale of Pocahontas and her relationships with adventurer John Smith and aristocrat John Rolfe, this woman’s remarkable journey of love lost and found takes her from Virginia’s pristine wilderness to England’s upper crust society, as we witness the dawn of a new America. The event will be held on the

front lawn of the Mansion (in inclement weather the event will be held in the Warehouse), and light refreshments will be served. Chairs will be provided, but blankets and folding chairs are also welcome. This Film, shown courtesy of the Environmental Film Festival and Flo Stone, will be held FREE OF CHARGE, but advance reservations are requested as seating is limited. Call 301-373-2280.

“I am the LONG one! I eat trees! I trample elephants! STAY AWAY FROM ME!”, kids shouted in the St. Paul’s Methodist Church on Monday. Why? Kathleen Jacobs. Her puppet show All Creatures Great and Small had both children and adults enthusiastic and eager to participate. By courtesy of the St. Mary’s County Library children of all ages had something positive and fun to do Monday afternoon. Families gathered in the church auditorium as Jacobs took on the role of different characters and animals throughout her performance. A few lucky audience members got to be apart of the show as well. Volunteers were given their own puppet to bring to life and become. (Even the parents gave a helping hand) It was obvious the effect Jacobs had on the audience; each child was thoroughly curious and cooperative as her storytelling unraveled. But who is this Kathleen

Pathways Implements National Practice to Improve Lives Of Adults With Mental Illnesses Pathways, a private, nonprofit organization based in St. Mary’s County that provides behavioral health services in Southern Maryland has implemented a nationally recognized model of practice with proven ability to improve the lives of adults with a mental illness. This initiative is part of a continuing effort to improve services to persons in need. The model, referred to as Illness Management and Recovery, or IMR, is one of six “evidencebased” practice models endorsed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration of the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services. Evidence-based practices are those research has demonstrated to be effective. IMR is an approach that helps people set meaningful goals for themselves, acquire information and skills to develop more mastery over their psychiatric illness, and make progress toward their own personal recovery. Harry Cunningham, LICSW, Director of Con-

sultation and Education at The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester New Hampshire and a national consultant in the development and management of Evidence-Based Practices, was hired to conduct a two-day training for staff. Mr. Cunningham remarked that Pathways employees were “active and motivated” in learning a behavioral health care strategy that positions the agency as a leader with this model in the state of Maryland. One of the major characteristics that distinguish Illness Management and Recovery from other more traditional behavioral health practices is the strong message of hope and personal empowerment delivered to the person with the psychiatric illness. For additional information, please contact Donald Barber, Senior Program Director at 301-373-3065, ext. 207. If unavailable, contact Gerard McGloin, Executive Director at 301373-3065, ext. 203.

Scrapping for Soldiers Top Line Creations consultants across the United States have teamed up with Soldiersangels.org to raise money for phone cards for soldiers. The Scrapping for Soldiers crop will be held September 8th at Titan Corporation in Lexington Park from 9 a.m.- 9 p.m. Fee is $40, which includes lunch, dinner, snacks, goodie bags, and prizes. Vendors will

be on site for shopping. There will be a silent auction to help raise additional money for the soldiers. The organization is looking for donations from the community for food and prizes. The more that is donated, the more they can send to Soldiers Angels to be used for the phone cards. Keeping in touch with family is very important for our soldiers and

it’s the least we can do for the sacrifices they are making for our freedom. Additional information on all the crops that are currently scheduled can be found on the website at www.scrappingforsoldiers. com. If interested in registering for this event, please contact kristie@lippert.com or 301-290-0117.

Critter Corner When Two Are Better Than One While we may pride ourselves on how we pamper our pets, we may be denying them what they need the most-companionship of one of their own species. Most feline behaviorists agree that cats generally lead happier, healthier lives if there is another cat in the household. Even if the cats never become best friends, just sharing the house with another living creature while you are away helps to break the monotony and loneliness. If the cats should become playmates, there is the added benefit of exercise and entertainment most needed by kittens and young adult cats. Many cases of playful aggression directed toward the owner, as well as various forms of household destruction, can be

prevented if the cat’s energies are focused on a playmate. Young males under two years old have an especially strong need for a buddy. Owners of rambunctious young cats may hesitate to take on another cat, but those that do are generally delighted to see how much the cats enjoy each other. This same theory applies to our canine friends as well. It’s been said that a dog needs a dog to be dog. Dogs love to roughhouse with each other, playing and play-biting. This reinforces lessons learned from their moms when they were puppies. It helps them to keep a “soft” mouth when playing so no one gets hurt. So if you have a dog or cat that seems lonely, and there is room in your home and your

Date: heart for another pet, you may want to consider adding a new member to your family. Our experienced staff at the TriCounty Animal Shelter will speak with you about the pet you already have at home, and make recommendations to help you find a suitable match. We will also offer suggestions on introducing the pets to each other to make the transition as smooth as possible. Visit us today to find a playmate for your furry best friend. We just might have what you both are looking for.

Sheriff’s Office Win Accreditation Emily Finch Contributing Writer The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office is now nationally accredited by the country’s leading police certification agency. Sheriff Tim Cameron stood before a board of commissioners from the Commission for Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) in Montreal in Quebec, Canada this past weekend. “Saturday morning we went before a panel of CALEA commissioners and Saturday night we were unanimously voted in,” said Cameron. The board reviewed reports performed by CALEA assessors earlier this year and interviewed Cameron about the sheriff’s department before voting. The reports were the result of an assessment that was completed this month. This included ride-alongs, public commentary, and staff interviews, among other things.

When a mock assessment was held in December of last year, Deputy Chief Kevin Simpson of the Hinsdale, Ill. Police Department was one of the CALEA assessors inspecting the sheriff’s department. Simpson said that “we were very impressed with the personnel of the department” and the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office looked promising in all other areas as well. Sheriff Cameron believes that this new certification makes the office more “transparent to the public” and it’s employees more accountable. “With CALEA accreditation, we have to adhere to a set of notable best practices and prove it. This makes every employee accountable because there is now only one set of standards for everyone to follow,” said Cameron. Having a single set of standards also makes it easier for the public to see and monitor what the sheriff’s office is doing and not doing, and how well they are doing it.

“These standards will help maximize how [the Sheriff’s Department] serves the public, in efficiency and effectiveness,” said Cameron By receiving CALEA certification, all members of the St. Mary’s County Sheriffs Office must maintain these high standards for the department and themselves. “The department is up for reaccredidation in three years,” said Cameron, and at that time CALEA will send more assessors to collect proofs. According to Cameron, proofs are gathered by performing another assessment “to make sure the department has been keeping everything in place and that we can prove it.” All in all, the CALEA accreditation means the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Department is one of the top police forces in the nation, and Cameron is optimistic that they can maintain that position in the future.

Tips for Throwing a Restaurant Party Nearly everyone enjoys a good party. But few love cleaning up once the party’s over. This is one reason party hosts often choose restaurants as their party locales. The chance to leave the cleaning to someone else proves too enticing. But before throwing your next get-together at a nearby restaurant, consider the following tips: • Do your homework: Narrow down your list of potential locations and spend a day going to them and discussing party parameters with the restaurant managers. Such parameters include cost, possibility of renting a private room (or the entire restaurant, depending on party size), flexibility of menu (can items not on the menu be ordered in advance?), and arranging the date of the party. After these things have been discussed with each restaurant’s manager, you can make your de-

cision. (Note: If you’re having trouble finding a restaurant or getting recommendations from friends, consult a guidebook such as Zagat’s.) • Get things in writing: Ask the restaurant manager to put your eventual agreement in writing. Nothing can ruin a party like squabbling over the bill at the end of the night. With spelled-out contract, you’re sure to avoid any financial surprises. • Send invitations: Invitations are necessary for a number of reasons. First of all, before making an agreement with the restaurant manager you’ll need to know a head count for guests. The number can be a ballpark figure, but invitations with an RSVP date will make calculating that estimate all the easier. Another reason for invitations is they’ll help you establish a budget. For example, if 20 people will be attending but you’d planned

on 40, you might be able to afford a fancier restaurant. However, if all 40 invitees plan to attend, you’ll need to consider that when shopping for a restaurant. • Consider the staff: Many restaurants include gratuity in the bill for larger parties. However, restaurant staff typically work very hard when handling a larger group. Feel free to add more to the gratuity for exceptional service.

Kids Corner

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
