Spring Valley family seeks relocation
I ’ L L F LY AW AY
By ELIZABETH WIENER Current Staff Writer
A Spring Valley family is filing a last-ditch petition for relocation before the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers excavates for toxic chemicals on a property directly across from their Glenbrook Road home — in a neighborhood where chemical weapons were tested during World War I, and quietly buried after the war was over. The couple, Rogerio Zandamela and Christine Dieterich, have repeatedly asked the Army to relocate their two children before major excavation begins this spring. Now, after a final rejection last week, they are petitioning the regional administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which has authority to order the relocation on the basis of health and safety. The petition cites “imminent and substantial endangerment” to the children — one 22 months old, the other 5 years old — once excavation begins “less than 15 yards See Glenbrook/Page 18

The Army believes there are munitions buried at 4825 Glenbrook Road. Residents across the street want to be relocated during excavation work.
Graham draws reprimand over contract ■ Council: Ward 1 legislator
loses oversight of ABC issues By ELIZABETH WIENER Current Staff Writer
Bill Petros/The Current
The Sidwell Friends Dance Ensemble presented a program Sunday at the Atlas Performing Arts Center as part of the fourth annual Intersections Festival. The performers set out to define through dance what the word “home” means to them.
In a dramatic dressing-down of one of its own, the D.C. Council Monday reprimanded Ward 1 member Jim Graham for allegedly interfering in contract negotiations, then stripped Graham of his longtime
oversight of the city’s alcohol beverage control system. On an 11-2 vote, the council agreed that in a 2008 incident, Graham showed “a complete lack of impartiality” and undermined the public’s confidence in integrity of the District government. In that case, Graham allegedly hinted that he would support a contractor’s bid to run the lucrative D.C. lottery if the same contractor, Warren Williams, dropped out of contention
for a Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority land development project. At-large member Vincent Orange, who chairs the Committee on Business, Consumer and Regulatory Affairs, will take over oversight of city alcoholic beverage regulation. Chairman Phil Mendelson, chief sponsor of the measure, was both somber and eloquent in explaining See Graham/Page 10
Liquor sales on Sunday prompt license requests
Local principals coordinate to ease transition to Wilson
By DEIRDRE BANNON
■ Schools: ‘Feeder pyramid’
Current Staff Writer
A new alcohol rule allowing liquor stores to open on Sundays has left more retailers looking to add liquor to their beer and wine sales. In Northwest, two such applications are in the pipeline: Trader Joe’s at 1101 25th St. in the West End, and Tenley Mini Market at 4326 Wisconsin Ave. near American University. When the D.C. Council passed the omnibus alcohol bill in December, it contained the new provision allowing liquor stores to open on Sundays — just as retailers selling beer and wine are allowed to do. That change has prompted an increase in applications from establishments seeking “Class A” licenses that allow sales of liquor in addition to beer and wine, according to

Bill Petros/The Current
Tenley Mini Market is seeking to add liquor in the wake of a new city law that allows Sunday sales.
Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration spokesperson William Hager. There are some parameters for operating a liquor store. First, there are a limited number of Class A licenses available for off-premises consumption — 215 are active now throughout the city, and another 35 could be issued. Such establishments can’t be within 400 feet of a See Licenses/Page 7

By DEIRDRE BANNON Current Staff Writer
Inside a trailer classroom at Lafayette Elementary School Monday morning, a group of D.C. Public Schools principals gathered over coffee to talk shop as part of the “Wilson feeder pyramid.” Wilson High School principal Peter Cahall came up with the idea to bring together the principals from all 14 elementary and middle schools
that ultimately feed into Wilson to open the lines of communication between the schools and to enhance student readiness. “One of our values as a group is to come up with a strategy on how to prepare our kids for Wilson and beyond,” said Hyde-Addison Elementary School principal Dana Nerenberg, “and what we want our kids to get in a vertical way, as well as how we can help apply that vertical thinking across the entire school system.” It’s the first group of its kind created within D.C. Public Schools. See Wilson/Page 16

Settles removed from ballot in at-large special election, but Zukerberg stays Current Staff Report In the aftermath of recent petition challenges, John Settles has been deemed ineligible as a candidate for the at-large D.C. Council race, while Paul Zukerberg will remain on the April 23 special election ballot. The D.C. Board of Elections requires candidates to collect 3,000 signatures from registered voters.
The board ruled Monday that Zukerberg met that rule — with exactly 3,000 — but Settles didn’t. Both candidates have criticized the election board for database problems and other issues that complicate verification of registered voters, which the board vehemently denied. A statement from Zukerberg described how his campaign proved
the validity of contested signatures by hand-matching them to voters who had changed their addresses. Settles this week also criticized the elections board for “faulty data” and procedures that “disenfranchise homeless individuals, seniors, low income individuals and minorities.” In a statement, Settles said his campaign “collected well over the
required number” of signatures, but more than 675 were contested. Settles, who lives in Logan Circle, left his position as branch manager of a Wells Fargo Home Mortgage to dedicate himself to his campaign. The challenges to both Settles’ and Zukerberg’s ballot petitions came from a supporter of at-large
candidate Elissa Silverman, a former reporter and DC Fiscal Policy Institute staffer. The heated at-large council race now includes seven candidates total. Zukerberg, a sole practitioner attorney who lives in Adams Morgan, has vowed to explore how his own case might help Settles get back on the ballot.

ANC seeks shared driveway on Aberfoyle By BRADY HOLT Current Staff Writer
Where Aberfoyle Place makes a 90-degree turn to become 31st Street in Barnaby Woods, two driveways sit just a few feet apart on opposite sides of a storm drain, on the outside of the cornerâ€™s L. But the new owner of a vacant lot right at the corner, 3033 Aberfoyle, intends to build a new house there for his family. Heâ€™s seeking a third curb cut for the corner â€” between the other two, and directly atop the storm drain. The Chevy Chase advisory neighborhood commission on Monday grappled with the balance between overloading the blind turn and protecting the rights of landowners to access their properties. Kaveh Shirazi, who recently purchased 3033, said he doesnâ€™t want a third driveway at the corner, either. He wants the owner of neighboring 3045 Aberfoyle to connect their driveways and share the existing curb cut. That owner, developer Mohammed Sikder, said no. â€œWe think the only sensible option and viable option is a shared driveway,â€? one neighbor said. Commissioners ultimately voted not to object to the curb cut application under the conditions that drainage isnâ€™t affected (plans call for a
grate to connect water to the storm sewer), that there be no impact on traffic or safety, and that Shirazi continue working with Sikder toward sharing a curb cut. Residents interested in a shared driveway do have some leverage: The public space permit granting a curb cut is revoked when a property
â??I donâ€™t want the outcome to be three driveways.â?ž â€” Gary Thompson is razed or even substantially altered, requiring a fresh approval. Sikder, who has done several recent teardown projects in Northwest, said he intends to demolish and replace 3045 Aberfoyle. The commission rejected a proposal by commissioner Gary Thompson, whose single-member district includes the property, to deny a public space permit to 3045 Aberfoyle if Sikder continues to oppose a shared driveway. But Thompson said the incident will nonetheless be fresh in the mind of neighborhood commissioners and the Public Space Committee â€” the D.C. Department of Transportation
panel with authority over curb cuts â€” when Sikder comes before them with his own application. â€œI donâ€™t want the outcome to be three driveways,â€? Thompson said. Indicating Shirazi and Sikder, he said, â€œEither youâ€™re going to get a driveway or youâ€™re going to get a driveway, but not both. â€Ś What goes around comes around.â€? Several of Thompsonâ€™s colleagues balked at his idea, which commissioner Randy Speck called â€œSolomonic.â€? Though he encouraged the two property owners to collaborate, Speck said that â€œif both of you have buildable lots, you both have a right to have access.â€? Another option, Thompson said, would be requiring Sikder to relocate his driveway farther from the corner when he seeks a renewed public space permit, if he doesnâ€™t go along with the shared driveway. â€œThe idea of there being three driveways around there is I think the worst possible solution for that neighborhood,â€? Thompson said. The 3033 Aberfoyle property has a narrow strip connecting it to the street, and widens out as the land slopes downhill toward a stream below. Shirazi is planning a fourlevel house â€” with two levels above the street level â€” that will be built on stilts, according to Thompson.

Revenue projection rises by $190 million
The Districtâ€™s projected revenue for the 2013 fiscal year is up $190 million, to $6.06 billion, according to a Friday letter from the Office of the Chief Financial Officer. Estimates for the 2013 through 2016 fiscal years are in total up nearly $745 million compared to the most recent prior projection. Economic growth is expected to continue, despite the expected federal sequester; even counting the newly projected increases, the growth rate is lower than it had been in some recent years, the letter states. According to the letter, economic growth has come largely from a burgeoning population that has boosted income tax revenues and raised property values.
LaBelle to perform at Ellington fundraiser
Award-winning performer Patti LaBelle will headline a benefit concert for the Duke Ellington School of the Arts next month, as part of the magnet schoolâ€™s annual â€œPerformance Series of Legends.â€? The concert, which will include performances by Ellington students, is scheduled to take place March 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the Kennedy Center Concert Hall. The Legends concert series, which the Ellington school launched in 2008, has raised more than $2 million for its arts curriculum, according to a news release from the school.
Tickets for LaBelleâ€™s performance range in price from $50 to $500 for a VIP package, and are available at kennedy-center.org. Other sponsorship opportunities are available through The Ellington Fund, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
AU names new dorm for donor Cassell
American University will name its newest dormitory Cassell Hall in honor of a $3 million gift from trustee and 1977 graduate Jack Cassell and his family, according to a university news release. The building is now under construction behind the Presidentâ€™s Office Building near Massachusetts Avenue. The eight-story building will accommodate 360 students in suite-style rooms, and it will include an 8,000-square-foot fitness center. The Cassellsâ€™ gift, which will support the universityâ€™s Department of Athletics and Recreation as well as the dormâ€™s construction, is the first naming gift for a residence hall at the university, according to the release. The new building, however, is not the first on campus to bear the familyâ€™s name. The multipurpose Cassell Center â€” named for Jackâ€™s father, Stafford H. â€œPopâ€? Cassell â€” previously occupied the site of the Katzen Art Center. The universityâ€™s basketball court is also named for the elder Cassell, who was a longtime coach, athletic director and vice president at the university.

Cleveland Park gym spotlights senior athletes in photo display By ALIX PIANIN Current Staff Writer
A new photography exhibit at Cleveland Parkâ€™s City Fitness Gym shines a light on athletes who have come into their own in their golden years and draws attention to new senior initiatives in the community launching this spring. A collection of photographs featuring older athletes participating in highly competitive track and field events drew a small crowd to the fitness center Saturday night, where British photographer Alex Rotas displayed a collection of 16 portraits she completed at the 2012 European Veterans Athletics Championships. The exhibit dovetailed with the gymâ€™s long-standing efforts to appeal to older members of the neighborhood, as well as the upcoming launch of the Cleveland Park Village for residents wishing to â€œage in placeâ€? in their own homes. Since taking over the City Fitness Gym in 1996, co-owners Lucinda LaRee and Dega Schembri have expanded the senior population there by offering early morning and midday classes such as yoga and body sculpting â€” all of which are typically fully booked. Participants are usually nearby residents in their 60s, 70s and 80s, Schembri said. City Fitness also created a daytime membership pass, which offers discounted rates for those who choose to use the gym on weekdays between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. â€œThey felt comfortable in this setting,â€? Schembri said, adding that she sees â€œa lot of potentialâ€? for fitness work with aging neighbors and future Cleveland Park Village members. Cleveland Park Village board member Minturn Wright was on hand at the exhibition opening to discuss the options and goals of the
future aging-in-place village, part of his ongoing outreach to encourage older citizens to join and interested neighbors to volunteer at the organization. â€œOne of the big things that weâ€™ve found is the people most in need of village services are the ones less likely to hear about them,â€? he said. The nationwide aging-in-place village movement got its start in Boston, but Washington provides a special market for this type of organization, Wright said. In D.C., he noted, â€œa whole lot of people are from somewhere else. You donâ€™t have family that you can just call up and ask your nephew to come over and cut down that tree, or something like that. â€Ś Thereâ€™s a tremendous market for the village movement here.â€? The Cleveland Park Village board is currently exploring ways to provide seniors with rides to social events and medical appointments, as well as services that would provide snow and leaf shoveling, and computer setup and assistance. â€œThey are all designed to enable people who are getting up in years to stay where they want, because poll after poll has shown â€” particularly in this neighborhood â€” that people want to stay in their homes,â€? Wright said. â€œThey donâ€™t want to leave simply because they canâ€™t change the light bulbs or rake the leaves.â€? The board is interviewing possible executive directors, with a decision likely in March, and is aiming to launch the village in April. While City Fitness does not have a formal relationship with the Cleveland Park Village, the gym hosted a â€œMeet and Greetâ€? for interested neighbors with representatives of the village last week. Around 50 people attended â€” a number of whom already belonged to the gym, See Seniors/Page 16

LICENSES: ABC reform bill prompts some beer and wine stores to seek to add liquor
From Page 1
school or city recreation area; nor can they be within 400 feet of another liquor store. Annual license fees also double from $1,300 to $2,600 with the conversion of the Class B license for beer and wine sales into a Class A to add spirits. Though there have been recent debates over other license changes â€” such as whether stores like CVS and Walgreens should qualify to sell beer and wine under the exception for â€œfull-service grocery storesâ€? â€” the Class B to Class A changes have no far not proved controversial. â€œPersonally Iâ€™d be supportive so long as the applicant has a responsible track record currently (e.g., no underage issues), the plans donâ€™t take away from providing critical groceries and any other issues are addressed appropriately for the direct neighbors (e.g., loading hours etc.),â€? West End neighborhood commissioner Rebecca Coder wrote in an email to The Current. The Trader Joeâ€™s corporate office didnâ€™t respond to questions about why it wanted to expand its offerings to include spirits. The owner of Tenley Mini Market wasnâ€™t available for an interview before The Currentâ€™s deadline, but an employee at the market said the ability to sell liquor on Sundays prompted the owner to apply for a change in the license. But itâ€™s not all rosy for market owners who decide to expand their inventory to include liquor sales. William Kim, who has owned Mac Market at 5185 MacArthur Blvd. in the Palisades for eight years, decided to apply for a change in his license from Class B to Class A this past summer when Town Square Market just up the street was in jeopardy of losing its license after the owner was found guilty of selling alcohol to minors. Kim was granted the new license and started selling liquor in July, and in early February he was given permission to stay open on Sundays. But so far Kim says the new prod-

ucts and new hours of operation havenâ€™t translated into profit. â€œIt was a business decision to sell liquor,â€? Kim said in an interview. â€œIf Town Square was closed, then residents in the neighborhood wouldnâ€™t have a liquor store to go to; there would be a void in the neighborhood.â€? Kim hasnâ€™t seen results yet,
though. The product is expensive and thereâ€™s a very small profit margin â€” itâ€™s sometimes as low as $1 on a $25 bottle of vodka, he said. Foot traffic on Sundays so far hasnâ€™t drummed up enough business to make it worth his while; additionally, until this month, the license conversion meant the store could not sell beer and wine on Sundays.
Itâ€™s unlikely that retailers such as CVS or Walgreenâ€™s would apply for a Class A license to get around obstacles in obtaining a Class B license. According to D.C. alcohol regulations, if a chain store is granted a license to sell liquor, it could do so only in one of its locations, and it would have to give up any other liquor licenses it might have, includ-
ing all Class B licenses. Restaurants and bars are also unlikely to be impacted by Sunday liquor store sales, according to Andrew Kline, representative of the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington. â€œItâ€™s a completely different business model,â€? Kline said. â€œRestaurants and bars are providing customers with an experience.â€?

Davis Kennedy/Publisher & Editor Chris Kain/Managing Editor
During the D.C. Council’s session this week to reprimand Ward 1 member Jim Graham for inappropriate conduct, only one of his colleagues criticized the resolution — in fact, even Mr. Graham himself did not speak out initially. His only comments came after the vote, when the council was considering stripping him of oversight duties over alcoholic beverage control. In the days leading up the meeting, Mr. Graham had said he wanted a hearing and investigation before the council acted. He ultimately decided otherwise, he said from the dais, after being told that his colleagues would act Monday on the reprimand even if they were to set up a special committee to look into the matter. He opted to avoid the “double whammy,” he said. It’s hard to argue with the case laid out in the nine-page resolution introduced by Chairman Phil Mendelson and adopted on an 11-2 vote. In 2008, Mr. Graham involved himself in a contractor’s bid to run the D.C. lottery, pushing the contractor — a longtime political foe — to drop out of a land development project with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, upon whose board Mr. Graham then served. Whether that was a quid pro quo for support on the lottery contract is disputed, but even Mr. Graham’s account does not vindicate him from the behind-the-scenes wrangling that besmirched the council. The appearance of impropriety is clear. Ward 8’s Marion Barry — himself the subject of a censure a few years ago — alone argued against voting on the reprimand, arguing that the council would be depriving Mr. Graham of due process. But it’s important to note that the council was not conducting a criminal proceeding; it was acting to protect confidence in the council as an institution. As Mr. Barry noted, members were making a political decision, not rendering a legal verdict. That said, we believe the reprimand process should have included a hearing. It would have given Mr. Graham a chance to face his accusers and lay out his case, and it also would have allowed the public an opportunity to better understand the complex allegations. There are three written reports examining the matter, but that does not obviate the value of a public airing. Sad to say, it’s quite possible that the council will need to consider a resolution of reprimand in the future. Now is the time to alter procedures to require a public hearing. Though protecting the rights of the accused is certainly one reason to do so, an equally compelling consideration is protecting the public interest. A hearing might show the reprimand to be undeserved, but it might also show it to be inadequate. In such a well-publicized, thoroughly investigated case, “moving on” — as Mr. Graham and others want to do — is not equivalent to sweeping the matter under the rug. Depending on the circumstances, that might not always be the case. The requirement for a public hearing could prevent future officeholders from seeking to close the book too early on a colleague’s missteps.
Some six years after D.C. expanded its workplace smoking ban, the sights and smells of smoked-filled bars and taverns grow increasingly remote. Indeed, it’s hard to recall why there was so much fuss about the idea of banning smoking in bars — or restaurants, or airplanes, or movie theaters. Two newly introduced D.C. Council bills would add new prohibitions — this time outdoors, within 25 feet of a playground or play area. The science as to the health effects of secondhand smoke outdoors is certainly not settled, but we don’t see that as a reason to hold back given the bills’ tight focus on areas set aside for children. Play areas ought to be free of annoying smoke in the air and cigarette butts on the ground. For children with allergies or asthma, the issue is not only annoyance but their very ability to enjoy playtime. Some jurisdictions have gone further, banning smoking in all public parks. That’s worth considering but would necessitate much more scrutiny. It appears to reach too broadly, particularly if it were to extend to a 25-foot buffer around the city’s many pocket parks. In other places, critics have decried such proposals as the product of a nanny state gone wild, and argued that enforcement would waste police resources. But neither argument is compelling when it comes to playgrounds. Whether Mary Poppins or the D.C. Council is the one telling you not to smoke next to children at play, it’s a worthwhile rule to follow. And widespread enforcement has not proved necessary to gain general compliance with no-smoking rules elsewhere; they quickly become the norm. There are certainly details to work out in committee, such as whether the rules would apply to playgrounds on private space. The matter now rests with the Committee on Transportation and the Environment, chaired by Ward 3’s Mary Cheh. We commend the authors for introducing their measures, and hope to see a consensus version advance.
Ethics, say it again, ethics …
nd on Monday, the D.C. Council solemnly gathered to render its verdict on Ward 1 member Jim Graham. But before it did, Council Chairman Phil Mendelson was remarkably blunt. In something that amounted to a soliloquy about how political bodies work, particularly the 13-member council, Mendelson pretty much said such bodies are go-along-to-get-along societies. “And so it’s not ordinarily constructive to criticize one another, which is why there is a lot of reluctance to do that and why today is an uncomfortable day for the council,” Mendelson said, barely looking up as he read his statement. “We cannot get to the issues, the important issues of policy, if we spend our times disciplining each other.” Anyone who didn’t know Mendelson might think the chairman was foolish, or didn’t think Graham really needed to be reprimanded. How could Mendelson be so honest about how political bodies work — compromise, vote-trading and dealmaking? But Mendelson was just laying the groundwork. In the real world of politics, you have to do something really out of line, Mendelson said, to draw rebuke from the full council. “The situation has to be extraordinary,” he said. And at that point, Mendelson laid out a sevenpoint resolution that detailed how he thought three investigations had shown Graham had improperly co-mingled political consideration of developers vying for a city contract and a separate contract with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority. “While it may be appropriate for a council member to publicly express a preference,” Mendelson read, “it is not appropriate for a council member to attempt behind the scenes to say who may win a [contract] bid.” Mendelson then read from the council rules about ethical behavior, how the members had to hold themselves to “a high level of conduct,” and how they “shall refrain from taking, ordering or participating in any official action which would adversely affect the confidence of the public in the integrity of the District government.” Only Ward 8’s Marion Barry spoke up for Graham. He said Graham deserved a council hearing on all the allegations. And then Barry himself was blunt about politics. “Everybody on this council on a daily basis, a weekly basis, makes arrangements to trade votes on this or that because that’s how the process works,” Barry said. “I’ve done it. Everybody on this council has done it.” Outside of the council chamber, two potential can-
didates for mayor disagreed with Barry. “It goes to the heart of what’s going on with the city council in terms of a crisis of ethics and trust in the community,” said Ward 6’s Tommy Wells, who has formed an exploratory committee for mayor. “The idea that there’s horse trading around contracts and public land should never be acceptable.” Ward 4’s Muriel Bowser helped write the city’s new ethics law. Although there are criticisms that it doesn’t ban corporate donations, among other issues, Bowser is making ethics a key part of her preparations — private so far — for her own mayoral bid. “We’re going to apply the highest standards of ethics to all of our actions,” she told NBC4 in her office. “In every election that I’ve ever been involved in, we talk about open and transparent government and leading with integrity. And should I be in another election, it won’t be any different.” ■ Now what, Jim? Graham last week was vowing to fight a council reprimand. He was insisting that there be a full council hearing so he could defend himself. But over the weekend, Graham apparently decided that the reprimand was the better way to go, to get the issue behind him. In the end, Graham voted against his reprimand but extravagantly praised Mendelson. “You are thoughtful, you are fair, you are determined to do the best thing in your mind by the council. … And while I disagree with the conclusions you’ve reached, I certainly … respect the process you followed.” Translation: It could have been worse. Graham later released his own written statement, saying in part, “It’s time to move on.” Graham lost oversight of alcohol issues as part of his punishment, but he remains chair of the expansive Human Services Committee. There is no fine or other punishment. “I will continue to represent the people who elected me to serve with the same passion and fervor as I have from my first day in office,” the statement reads. ■ D.C. vote push. Last week Mendelson kicked off a campaign to get voters to approve a referendum on April 23 to free the city’s budget from congressional oversight. The D.C. Budget Freedom Committee hopes to persuade Congress to allow the city to spend its own local revenues without congressional approval and to be exempt from federal shutdowns. One drawback is that Mayor Vincent Gray and D.C. Attorney General Irving Nathan think the ballot measure potentially violates the home rule act and could aggravate Republicans who control the House rather than persuade them.

Letters to the Editor ‘Urban park’ would benefit Garrison
The community stood up for Garrison Elementary, argued numbers, and saved the school from closure. The community also argued that to become a first-class school Garrison must offer the programming that parents in this neighborhood want (language immersion) and, crucially, must be fully modernized. Garrison sits smack in the middle of the intersection between Logan Circle, Dupont Circle and the U Street Corridor. Garrison’s 4.5 acres of land have a history that goes back to the Civil War —
150 years of uninterrupted educational and communal use. This land and the school building that stands on it have been neglected for decades — slides are boarded up and recurring sinkholes open up whenever it rains. The latest sinkhole reappeared on Sunday. This is unacceptable. Last year, the community engaged in a participatory process to determine the best use for this space. The concept drawings that resulted from this process can be seen at garrisonelementary.org. They include a running track, multipurpose field (Little League baseball and soccer), basketball court, spray park, early childhood playground, regular playground, community square, farmers market, outdoor performance space and a nature trail.
The beneficiaries of Garrison’s “Urban Park” would be current and prospective students, their families and our entire community — gathering spaces and a strong school will help create a more anchored community. The developments along 14th Street and U Street will attract thousands of additional residents. Where will we all go for recreation space? Rock Creek Park? The waterfront? We need an urban park in our neighborhood! Now is the time for us to stand up and demand that Garrison’s grounds be made into a usable space, and an integral part of the Sustainable D.C. policy. Mayor Gray, make this happen! Roheena Trehan Parent, Garrison Elementary School
Council office has worked to address project VIEWPOINT mary cheh
ast weekâ€™s Viewpoint concerned the proposed project at 5333 Connecticut Ave. in Chevy Chase. I completely understand the concerns and anxieties that the nearby neighbors have about a project of this size and design, and I share those concerns. But, unfortunately, those worries have infected the tenor of rhetoric surrounding the project so that the reality and facts of what has happened and what can be done is clouded. So I would like, here, to try to clarify matters. My office has been actively pursuing this project from the moment we became aware of it, when The Current reported on it on Nov. 28, 2012. That very day, my chief of staff reached out to Eric Colbert & Associates, the proposed buildingâ€™s designer. Soon after, we were able to identify the permits that had been applied for and where they were in the review process. Concerned because of the scope and scale of the project, we reached out to the director of the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs, who assured us that the process would extend beyond the holiday season and that no permits were expected to be issued before late January at the earliest. My office then began planning for a community meeting to address the concerns that had begun to surface and scheduled it for Jan. 3. We again reached out to the buildingâ€™s architect, hoping to secure the developerâ€™s presence at the meeting. Around the same time, in late December, my office met with a group of concerned citizens, many of whom are now on the steering committee of the 5333 Connecticut Neighborhood Coalition. They laid out a host of concerns, which ran the gamut from the permitting process to the aesthetics to the environmental impact. We informed them of the January meeting and indicated that the relevant agencies would be present to answer many of their questions. We secured the location at the Chevy Chase Community Center and began advertising the meeting. On the afternoon of New Yearâ€™s Eve, we finally received word from Mr. Colbert that the Cafritzes both were willing to be a part of the meeting â€” which we were certainly glad to hear, as
Letters to the Editor Court ruling wouldnâ€™t kill EastBanc projects
I would like to clarify several issues relating to The Currentâ€™s Feb. 20 piece on the West End Library project appeal since I attended the Zoning Commission hearings, read the briefs and sat through the interminable oral argument in the D.C. Court of Appeals. (I favor the project, but that doesnâ€™t influence my analysis.) As the article pointed out, the primary issue raised by the D.C. Library Renaissance Project was whether the Zoning Commission had improperly refused to re-examine the economic merits of the transfer of D.C. land to the developer EastBanc. The commission had not done so because the mayor had proposed the terms of the transfer and the D.C. Council had legislatively approved those terms. The commission believed its jurisdiction
many of the communityâ€™s concerns can only be remedied by them â€” but that they would be unable to attend on Jan. 3. That very evening, in an email to constituents and in a posting on the Chevy Chase listserv, we announced that the meeting would be postponed and rescheduled to allow the community to speak, not only with the relevant government agencies, but also with the developer and architects. Contrary to Daniel S. Greenbergâ€™s assertions last week, the Jan. 3 meeting was never canceled, nor was the meeting called only â€œafter much prodding by constituents.â€? The rescheduled meeting was very well attended with many, many residents able to ask questions directly of the developers and relevant government officials. After the meeting, I created a Web page for this project (tinyurl.com/marycheh5333). There, I have posted relevant information and communications about the project with city officials, the Cafritzes and the commuity. That process continues, and I expect later this week to be posting the traffic analysis that I asked the D.C. Department of Transportation to conduct. Finally, when a recent community meeting with the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs was canceled, I intervened to get it back on track I am troubled, then, by Mr. Greenbergâ€™s thesis that I am shirking my responsibilities as the elected representative of Ward 3 by not using my â€œpolitical clout to halt the Cafritz project as now designed.â€? I believe that the facts above reflect far from a passive role as â€œneutral conciliator.â€? But I have to make something clear: I cannot and will not use political pressure to stop executive agencies from properly issuing permits to any citizen who is entitled to them, whether that citizen be an individual homeowner or a large developer. There are legal tools to prevent projects that residents find aesthetically undesirable or contrary to the character of a community â€” tools such as historic-district designations â€” but, unfortunately, none of those tools is present here. Therefore, I will continue to urge the Cafritzes to reconsider their project and its design, continue to remind agencies that permits must comply with the law, and continue to represent my constituents with the same enthusiasm that I have for six years. Mary Cheh represents Ward 3 on the D.C. Council.
was to consider the zoning issues, and not to determine whether the mayor and council had made a bad economic decision. The Library Renaissance Project, on the other hand, believed that the commission was required to consider the economic terms of the transfer since the commission was required to and did quantify the community benefits of the new library and the new fire station which EastBanc would build in exchange for D.C. land. The court, however, will not decide the fate of the project or examine the merits of the land transfer. If the court decides that the Library Renaissance Project had the right to bring the appeal and that the commission should have re-examined and balanced what the mayor and council did against the project benefits, the court will simply send the matter back to the commission with instructions to do so. Presumably, the commission would do so quickly and then issue a revised opinion. It is almost certain that the court decision will merely address the procedural necessity of

Too many politicians remain out of touch
Details in Daniel Greenbergâ€™s Feb. 20 Viewpoint about apartment plans for 5333 Connecticut Ave. are absolutely fascinating. He informs us, concisely and clearly, about systemic realities and actions (and nonactions) affecting local residents. Do some D.C. Council members want to emulate the isolation and apartness of some politicians on Capitol Hill? Mr. Greenberg is aware of the lack of concern of some project promoters and politicians for the needs and desires of neighbors in the vicinity. I have a suggestion for council members. One day a week, they and only they should answer their phones. They might be enlightened about constituentsâ€™ concerns. Bob Jones Glover Park

GRAHAM: Council member stripped of alcoholic beverage oversight after reprimand
From Page 1
the reprimand â€” only the second in the councilâ€™s history. â€œI do not relish this situation,â€? he said. â€œWe learn as council members not to criticize each other, so the situation has to be extraordinary to come before us.â€? Mendelson said Graham had violated both ethics rules and the councilâ€™s code of conduct. â€œProcurement is always a source of corruption in government. Thatâ€™s
why we have a procedure in placeâ€? to shield contracting decisions from politics, he said. â€œItâ€™s not appropriate for a council member to work behind the scenes to influence the outcome,â€? the chairman said, though he added that there was â€œno indication of a criminal violation.â€? At issue is a 2008 private meeting where Graham â€” then chair of the Metro board â€” allegedly suggested Williams drop out of the bidding to redevelop Metro-owned
land on Florida Avenue, in return for Grahamâ€™s support on the city lottery contract. Graham has called it ordinary political â€œhorse-trading,â€? but two investigations found the â€œquid pro quoâ€? improper. Other council members made clear that a series of ethical crises over the past two years spurred them to act. â€œWe have to preserve and keep the publicâ€™s confidence. To obtain contracts for friends, and deter them for enemies â€” we have
to stop it,â€? said Ward 3 member Mary Cheh. At-large member David Grosso said residents are particularly disturbed at manipulations of the contracting process, and argued the council should give up its role in approving contracts over $1 million. â€œThis wheeling and dealing in the contracting process has shaken votersâ€™ confidence,â€? Grosso said. â€œThereâ€™s a crisis of ethics and trust,â€? said Ward 6 member Tommy

Wells. â€œTo suggest â€˜horse-tradingâ€™ is standard â€” who will invest here, if we say in backrooms who are the winners and losers?â€? Wells walked away without commenting when a reporter asked him whether Graham should resign. Only Ward 8 member Marion Barry joined Graham in voting against the reprimand, saying his colleague was denied due process since neither the Board of Ethics and Government Accountability, nor the council, had conducted a full investigation, giving Graham a chance to call witnesses and make his case. Barry is still protesting the fact that he was censured by the council three years ago for steering earmarked dollars to a former girlfriend. Graham declined to speak on the reprimand, saying only that it is â€œtime to move on.â€? But on the alcohol oversight issue, Graham argued vehemently that the punishment is unfair. â€œThis is an area where, for fully eight years, now my ninth year, I have been very diligent, dedicated. Weâ€™ve tackled every issue â€” single sales, sales to minors, problems with fake IDs, nude dancing, noise, violence,â€? he said. â€œLosing this particular responsibility under these circumstances is very painful to me. Iâ€™m proud of my record on alcohol, my highly honorable record,â€? Graham said. â€œThere is no relationship between this reprimand and my oversight of alcohol.â€? But, he repeated, it is â€œtime to put this behind us. My hands are full.â€? He noted he will still serve as chair of the Committee on Human Services as well as serving constituents in Ward 1. He also faces a reelection fight if he decides to run for a fifth term next year. Orange told The Current he has given little thought to how he will oversee alcohol issues, but noted that Graham is still a member of his regulatory committee. â€œI will sit down with him and draw on his expertise,â€? Orange said.

Maret boys basketball wins its first-ever outright MAC title By BRIAN KAPUR Current Staff Writer
Brian Kapur/The Current
Maret senior guard Marlon Beck, left, embraces senior forwards Ture Lawrence, middle, and Tre Bowens after the Frogs knocked off Sidwell to win the MAC championship outright Sunday at Potomac School.
After being swarmed by the Maret student section and his teammates, Marlon Beck took a seat on the Frogs’ bench on Sunday. The senior buried his face in his hands as tears filled his eyes. Then, after composing himself, Beck rejoined the celebration. It was a moment and the achievement he promised at the start of the season and delivered at the Potomac School, when the Frogs cruised past Sidwell 74-65 to win their firstever unshared Mid-Atlantic Conference championship. “It was a great feeling,” said Beck. “I never thought I would achieve something like this. ...To win a school tournament, it’s just the ultimate feeling. We put in the hard work, and we got it.” The Frogs were led by senior forward Tre Bowens’ 17 points, while junior guard Steffen Davis had 16, Beck had 13, and senior guard Adam Zeitler had 10. For Sidwell, guard Josh Hart had a game-high 28 points and senior guard Phillip McGloin had 12. The opening quarter was a battle between the two squads, with both hitting big-time shots. The period ended with Maret clinging to a 19-18 lead. But in the second quarter, the Frogs took control of the game. Maret got hot
shooting and finished the game with 11 threepoint buckets as Davis and Zeitler caught fire from long distance. Meanwhile Sidwell struggled on offense and only mustered eight points in the quarter. The difference in the game was Bowens, who dominated the two regular-season meetings between the squads. On Sunday, Bowens controlled the post once again, but also showed off his range by hitting a trey. “We call him Mr. Steady,” said Maret coach Garrett O’Donnell. “He calms us down on offense and leads our defense, provides our physicality. His ability to play inside and outside is huge.” By halftime the Frogs seized the momentum, and their lead was 37-26. After the break Sidwell showed why it had won at least a share of the last three MAC championships, making a furious rally behind Hart. The Quakers cut the lead down to four after Hart scored on a three-point play, which energized Sidwell’s student section. But the Frogs quickly regained control and stomped out the run with a trey by Davis, who scored four three-point buckets in the game. “It’s a great moment for the kids,” O’Donnell said. “They’ve worked so hard. Sidwell is a great team. ... To be able to do this three times against them is a tribute to what our kids have done.”
Lady Cadets edge Falcons to win WCAC championship By BRIAN KAPUR Current Staff Writer
After a hard-fought battle in last year’s Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title game, Lindsay Allen could only watch as Good Counsel enjoyed the championship celebration and posed for photos with the trophy. That feeling motivated the St. John’s senior coming into this year, and last night the Cadets avenged the loss, beating Good Counsel — their biggest rival — 67-66 at American University’s Bender Arena. “It’s not fun watching another team getting a championship right in front of your face,” said Allen. “We worked hard all season; our motivation was to get here and win the championship.” It was another thrilling chapter to the fierce championship rivalry between St. John’s and Good Counsel. The Cadets fell to Good Counsel in last year’s championship game 79-76. But, back in 2011, the Cadets got the better of the Falcons when they won 62-54.
This season the two powerhouses split their season series, with both teams winning on their respective home courts. Both teams made it to the finals, setting up the rubber match in the championship game at a neutral site. In last night’s title game, Allen led the team with 28 points, while sophomore Amari Carter stepped up with 19, and senior Tori Oliver brought eight. The contest game down to the fourth quarter. On the biggest stage with the highest of stakes, Allen hit four critical free throws in the final two minutes to help the Cadets close out the game. “It’s just ridiculous,” Cadets coach Jonathan Scribner said of Allen’s play. “There’s nothing else to be said. She just refuses to lose — it’s that simple.” Though the Cadets came out as winners, they struggled early in the game and quickly fell into an 11-2 hole. “We came out with no energy and basically gave them everything we said not to do,” said Scribner.

Cadets senior Lindsay Allen, middle, scored a team-high 28 points in St. John’s title win last night. “We did everything the game plan said not to do. But we kept it close, and Lindsay gave us a spurt.” Allen quickly sparked a rally and scored six straight points, while Carter came up with two clutch buckets to cut the deficit to 16-10 by the end of the first quarter. They kept up the momentum, and Carter drained a three-pointer
with 2:04 to go before halftime, giving the Cadets their first lead of the game at 22-20. The team came out of halftime aggressively, as Allen took a fast break down the court to score, and freshman forward Kayla Robbins followed it up with a three-point play to put St. John’s up 27-23. The close battle continued
through the third period as Good Counsel retook the lead with a 9-6 run to make it a 46-41 lead going into the final quarter. In the fourth quarter, with the game on the line, Allen put together a masterful clutch performance. The senior scored two straight baskets to put the Cadets ahead 51-49.

Before the season started, Marta Sniezek outlined the goal of National Cathedralâ€™s girls basketball team â€” to get out of the Independent School Leagueâ€™s lower division. On Sunday, the Eagles did more than that. They dismantled Holy Child 57-44 to complete a perfect run through the ISL A, and secured an unshared league championship. By winning the regular-season title earlier in the week, the team had already clinched a spot in the AA division next year. â€œThat was our No. 1 goal â€” to move up into the upper division,â€? said Eagles coach Brittany Mitch. â€œI couldnâ€™t have expected to sweep the whole lower division and then win this championship today. Thatâ€™s what their goal was, and they did it.â€? Before the game Sniezek was honored for reaching the 1,000-point mark as merely a sophomore. On the championship stage at Sidwell, Sniezek made sure to add to that total with a dazzling performance that included a game-high 36 points. Meanwhile National Cathedral freshman Eva Snaith added 10 more points. Sniezekâ€™s development was a major factor in the Eaglesâ€™ championship season. Mitch has known Sniezek since she was 10 years old and has had a hand in her progression as a player over the years as her Amateur Athletic Union team coach. â€œJust through this season she has become more of a leader both vocally and through her actions,â€? said Mitch. â€œShe is a positive leader; she picks her teammates up. She knows when to step her game up.â€? The Eagles set the tone for the game early with Sniezek hitting shots from all over the floor to soften up

Cubs fall in title game
Visitation, the reigning Independent School League AA champion, was unable to retain its title Sunday at Sidwell. Bullis controlled the title game from the opening tipoff, cruising past the Cubs 60-39. â€œWe had a great season with a young team,â€? said Cubs coach Mike McCarthy. â€œBullis is just a really talented team. They came to play, and we looked tired.â€? Senior guard Taylor Delgado led the Cubs in scoring with 17 points. Bullis jumped out to a quick 22-9 lead and took advantage of strong
post play from junior Lynee Belton, who scored a game-high 21 points. â€œSheâ€™s one of the top post players in the county probably,â€? said the Visitation coach. â€œYou can only do so much. Some of it was her, and we had some lapses where we let her get the ball too easily.â€? Visitation freshman Alexis Gray hit a big basket, followed up by a tough bucket from Delgado to cut the Bulldogsâ€™ lead to 12. But the Cubs couldnâ€™t come any closer. Although Visitation lost the tournament championship game, it did win a share of the ISL AA regularseason crown. The Cubs will participate in the Bishop Walsh Tournament in Cumberland, Md., from March 7 to
9. The teamâ€™s prior commitment to this event will keep it from participating in the new D.C. basketball city title tournament.
Gonzaga stunned in the WCAC first round
After a perfect regular season in Washington Catholic Athletic Conference games, Gonzaga was shocked by Bishop Ireton 67-58 in the first round of the conference playoffs at Gallaudet University Saturday. Senior forward Kris Jenkins led the team with 18 points, senior guard Charles Glover had 16, junior Jordan Abdur-Raâ€™oof had 10, and sophomore guard Bryant Crawford had 10.

the defense. With the team up 18-10 in the closing moments of the first quarter, Holy Child had no answers for the sensational sophomore. The Tigers tried to double-team Sniezek, but she made them pay by dishing the ball to open teammates. Snaith, in particular, came up with two huge shots, including a buzzer beater to give the Eagles a 20-10 advantage at the close of the first period. Holy Child was able to hang around and chip the Eaglesâ€™ lead down to eight midway through the third quarter, but Sniezek came up with a momentum-killing play. Stealing the ball, she hit a floater to balloon the lead back to 37-27. In the final period the Eagles cruised as Sniezek piled in 12 more points to seal the championship win.
Visitation, Gonzaga fall in hoops playoffs
Falcons answered by retaking the lead 55-54. Allen stepped up by stealing the ball away from a Good Counsel player and racing coast-to-coast to hit a layup. Ahead by 56-55, St. Johnâ€™s wouldnâ€™t trail again.

National Cathedral School won its second straight ISL A tournament championship Sunday.
With a roster of mostly juniors and a first-year head coach in Sean McAloon, St. Johnâ€™s wasnâ€™t expected to be at the top of the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference. But the Cadets made an incredible run through the WCAC playoffs, reaching the championship game at
American Universityâ€™s Bender Arena. The trophy, though, proved out of reach last night when the St. Johnâ€™s fell 58-53 to Bishop Oâ€™Connell. The impressive playoff run began Saturday, when junior forward Darian Anderson hit a half-court buzzer beater to knock off perennial power DeMatha 57-55 at Gallaudet University. The Cadets then defeated Bishop Ireton Sunday to advance to the title game. â€œWe donâ€™t play to anyoneâ€™s expectations; we play to our own,â€? said McAloon. â€œWe set a goal, and it was to get to here and win it. Weâ€™re disappointed.â€? St. Johnâ€™s had 16 points from junior guard Darian Bryant, 11 points from junior guard Tre Campbell and nine points from Anderson.

Spotlight on Schools British School of Washington
Year 8 recently went on a ski trip. After a six-hour bus ride, we arrived at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. A tour guide told us about the history about radio astronomy. We saw the Green Bank Telescope, which was the biggest and tallest of its kind. Next we headed off to the Snowshoe Mountain Ski Resort and started skiing the following day. The first day of skiing ended shortly after it started because the weather was so bad that Snowshoe closed the mountain for the day. Fortunately in exchange we got an extra day of skiing! During the trip, I learned how to ski and now I would say I am pretty decent at skiing. â€” Khairul Asyraf, Year 8 Plymouth, seventh-grader
Edmund Burke School
In early February, our sixthgrade class went to the National Gallery of Art and to the National Museum of the American Indian, to â€œgain a deeper understanding of mythology by seeing how the European cultures envisioned it,â€? says Sean, our sixth-grade teacher. At the National Gallery of Art, we saw many Roman, Greek and mythological paintings and sculptures. We were mesmerized by a sculpture that was of the Roman messenger god, Mercury. He was pointing to the light beaming through the glass above. There was also a beautiful painting of Pandora with the box of evil. Our class went then went on to the American Indian Museum. One group completed a quiz game while going through the museum; others saw many kinds of spiritual clothing and masks, as well as foods eaten at tribal events. â€” Elya Baker and Jad Diouf, sixth-graders
The Field School
Students returned to Field last
week after their two-week internship period. Seventh- and eighthgraders interned around the city, while sixth-graders participated in group activities. For the first week, one group took cooking classes at Hillâ€™s Kitchen. They made doughnuts, lasagna, salad, ginger ale and more. The other group did art and music activities at Field, such as puppetry, ceramics and playing music. The next week, the groups switched. Overall, most sixth-graders preferred the cooking to the art, but all had a great time. Seventh- and eighth-graders took a field trip last week to the Washington Harbour ice rink. They had the rink practically all to themselves and had a great time. Before leaving, a group of students and teachers made a â€œHarlem Shakeâ€? video on ice. â€” Jana Cohen and Lila Bromberg, eighth-grader; and Adam Bressler, Revbekah Trigo, Jack MacIsaac and Nina Gutzeit, sixth-graders
Georgetown Day School
Students are looking forward to spring sports, warm weather and spring performances and concerts. In the meantime, winter sports teams are wrapping up their seasons. Last Friday, the boys varsity basketball team played St. James in the first round of the Mid-Atlantic Conference championships. The girls varsity basketball team played Holton-Arms last Friday in the first round of the Independent School League championships, after finishing the regular season with a 10-game winning streak! MAC wrestling champion Julia Ernst finished her season with a fourth-place finish at the St. Albans Tournament and a first-place finish at the DC Classic, and she went on to compete in the National Prep Wrestling Championships this past weekend. Also, 64 art students recently won multiple Scholastic Art-
Regional Awards, nine current seniors have been named finalists in the National Merit Scholarship Competition, and nine students placed in the top 5 percent of students nationwide in the American Mathematics Competition. â€” Carlton Marshall II, 11th-grader
Jewish Primary Day School of the Nationâ€™s Capital
For Art and Science Night, the fifth grade displayed inventions, the
sixth grade did experiments, one kindergarten class made a bridge you could walk on and the other made its own Empire State Building, and the fourth grade had an exploding volcano. People could go to each classroom and answer questions on a quiz sheet to get a prize. For their inventions, the fifthgraders began with learning a bit about simple machines and brainstorming for ideas. Students then
created their inventions, wrote about them, created a diagram or sketch, and then (if they could) made an actual model. There was also a market research element of this project. Each student interviewed about 20 to 50 people and asked them if they would buy his or her invention and how much they would be willing to spend. Some of the inventions included shoes with attachable and See Dispatches/Page 25

Northwest Real Estate SENIORS: Gym, photo exhibit promote health and fitness as part of aging in place
From Page 5
Schembri said. Schembri said that once the village launches, she would like to organize special fitness events for village members at City Fitness â€” such as tai chi classes, which she said may improve both physical and emotional health, as well as mental acuity. This year, Schembri and LaRee will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the gym as well as the 30-year anniversary of the founding of its parent company Fit Physique.
Tamsy Blumer, a Forest Hills resident and member of City Fitness, said she can attest to the benefits of added physical training in her life. An avid tennis player, she started to work with a trainer after struggling with neck and knee pains in her later years. â€œ[The trainer] is very good at figuring out how to work out old ladies who have various problems,â€? Blumer said. Rotas, herself a tennis player in her 60s who is ranked in the International Tennis Federation, became interested in documenting older athletes while participating in the

European Masters Games, where athletes up to (and sometimes older than) 100 years old compete. She watched men in some events run 100-meter races in 12 seconds â€” less than three seconds off the pace set by track legend Usain Bolt. An academic with a degree in visual culture, Rotas had long been dismayed at the widespread portrayal of aging. â€œI was partly motivated by the images that circulate in our culture â€” theyâ€™re so awful, so ghastly â€” about old people,â€? Rotas said. â€œYou just get this image of being old meaning that
youâ€™re just going to decline.â€? But at the games, Rotas was â€œblown awayâ€? by the raw athleticism of the competitors. â€œWeâ€™re not used to seeing women in their 70s in little shorts and stuff like that, so you see what an older womanâ€™s body looks like,â€? Rotas said. Gesturing toward a portrait of septuagenarian track runner, Rotas added, â€œSheâ€™s got great muscle tone. Sheâ€™s just radiant.â€? Rotasâ€™ 16-photograph exhibition exhibit will remain on display for the next two months at City Fitness, located at 3525 Connecticut Ave.
WILSON: Principals group enhances student readiness From Page 1
The principals started meeting at the beginning of the 2012â€“2013 school year, and get together quarterly. In part, they tackle administrative issues like coordinating school calendars to make sure events such as back-to-school nights and graduations are scheduled on different days, so parents with kids at multiple schools donâ€™t have a conflict. The group also shares resources â€” for instance, when Cahall brings in a consultant for teacher training, faculty from any of the other schools are welcome to attend. And when Hearst Elementary School was looking for a space to hold its school play in May â€” this year it will be â€œThe Lion Kingâ€? â€” Cahall offered Wilsonâ€™s newly renovated theater. The group also gives the principals a forum to discuss best practices and common challenges, like how to handle growing enrollment at schools that are already over capacity and tight on funds.
â€œWeâ€™re on our own so much of the time; thereâ€™s no other high school principal I can go to and say, â€˜This is what Iâ€™m experiencing,â€™ because thereâ€™s no other high school like Wilson â€” itâ€™s the largest and the most diverse,â€? Cahall said Monday. â€œI feel isolated. Thatâ€™s why I love this group: because we share some of the same challenges.â€? The 14 schools that feed into Wilson are Deal and Hardy middle schools; Oyster-Adams Bilingual School (pre-kindergarten through eighth grade); and Eaton, Bancroft, Lafayette, Murch, Janney, Shepherd, Hearst, Hyde-Addison, Key, Mann and Stoddert elementary schools. The group has made a concerted effort to enhance the effectiveness of the core curriculum for its students. On Monday, Deal principal James Albright reported on the first of a series of meetings he held with pyramid-school faculty on math curriculum to help ensure that middleschoolers are prepared for high school coursework.
â€œIt was an opportunity for math teachers to express their issues and concerns about the curriculum and interim assessments, and for us to get a sense of the kind of pressure going on around testing,â€? said Albright. Next monthâ€™s meeting will commence a similar focus on writing. An instructional coach and faculty members will attend to lay out the groundwork for future discussions. There is a real need to improve writing skills at the high school level, according to Cahall. â€œItâ€™s the thing we work on the least, and itâ€™s the skill students will need to use the most as adults,â€? he said. The principals are also working to make the school enrollment period, which begins April 1, easier for parents. Deal will coordinate with its feeder elementary schools to hold registration days there so parents donâ€™t have to trek to the middle school to submit paperwork. Once finalized, dates will be announced in advance so parents can plan ahead. There will also be buddy days for students transitioning from middle school to Wilson to foster familiarity with their new school. Wilson also sends its students to the lower schools to help with tutoring, in what Cahall calls a â€œwin-winâ€?: The highschoolers are able to fulfill community service hours, and it helps strengthen relationships among the feeder schools. The principalsâ€™ group is also looking at bringing parents into the fold, particularly those interested in looking at the Wilson feeder schools more broadly as well as across the entire school system. Since many parents have expressed to Cahall an interest in better understanding the implications of the No Child Left Behind waiver, he suggested that subject could be a starting point for future meetings. The principals in the group are also interested in introducing themselves as a team. â€œIt would be great to share with parents what weâ€™ve been talking about and to set goals together,â€? said Stoddert principal Patricia Pride. â€œAnd they may have some goals that we donâ€™t know about or ideas we havenâ€™t thought of.â€?
A Look at the Market in Northwest Washington

Renowned architectâ€™s home features modernist design
ucked at the end of a cul-desac in Woodland Normanstone is the midcentury modernist home of the late
ON THE MARKET DEIRDRE BANNON
Arthur Keyes, a renowned D.C.based architect. Located at 2605 31st St., the homeâ€™s simple exterior opens up into an expansive contemporary living space with an open floor plan, clean lines and floor-toceiling windows that seamlessly bring the outdoors in. Keyes studied under Frank Lloyd Wright as well as Walter Gropius, founder of the Bauhaus School. He co-founded the firm Keyes Condon Florance, and his work includes the National Gallery of Artâ€™s West Building renovation, the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, and several modernist residential homes. Keyes designed the home on 31st Street for his own family in 1950 and has been its only owner. â€œItâ€™s not just a house of its time, but itâ€™s a case study in the Bauhaus influence,â€? said Realtor John Mahshie of TTR Sothebyâ€™s International Realty.
Keyesâ€™ grandson, Jesse Keyes, remembers that even as a child he knew the house was special. â€œThere is a flow from the interior to the exterior, and an inherent sense of design that kids can pick up on,â€? he said in an interview. Now a designer in New York City who also studied architecture, the younger Keyes said the house â€œembodies the essential modernist tenet of building what you need and nothing more, and with this house, my grandfather did that.â€? Taking an elongated, triangular plot of land, Arthur Keyes built the house using what has been called an upside-down design. The splitlevel home expands upward and outward, with the top level serving as the main living space, bedrooms on the middle level, and a den on the lower level, which now also includes a 1990s addition Keyes designed that added a guest suite as well as a solarium, indoor pool and sauna. The upper level takes advantage of treetop views with floor-to-ceiling as well as clerestory windows that draw the eye upward. The open and airy L-shaped living and dining area with a wood-burning fireplace extends out to a large terrace that spans the width of the room. Keyes

Designed by renowned architect Arthur Keyes, this midcentury home is listed for $2,995,000. designed the space to take visitors from the inside to the outside in phases: the doorway in the dining area leads to a covered and screened-in porch with unobstructed views of the trees that surround the property, and an adjacent door brings one to a more intimate space that is completely outdoors, with only balustrades to define the area. Also on this level is a rectangular study that incorporates brick walls and built-in bookcases, and overlooks a large oak tree just outside the window. The adjacent kitchen faces 31st Street, and here again the focal point is a large box window, this one with a deep copper planter at its base. The updated kitchen features a Viking range with four burners, a grill and a microwave oven. Stainless-steel counter-

tops with natural wood and white cabinets as well as a tile floor bring a modern flair into this space. Three of the homeâ€™s four bedrooms are on the middle level, including the master with en suite bath. In all of the rooms Keyes incorporated built-in bureaus, closets and shelving, which minimizes the need to furnish the rooms, while maintaining the clean lines that are evident throughout the home. On the lower level is a den Keyes used as a sort of home office â€” his drafting table is placed next to a large window that peers up to the roots of a tree in the homeâ€™s front yard. The room also features a wood-burning fireplace. The new
solarium faces the backyard, and its exterior glass walls and terra-cotta tile floors create a soothing indoor environment. Even more luxurious is an indoor wave pool with a glass roof above and an adjacent sauna. An early 20th-century sculpture of a female figure overlooks the pool. A guest suite and full bath can also be found on this level. Rounding out the homeâ€™s amenities is a large two-car garage. This four-bedroom home with three full and two half baths at 2605 31st St. is offered for $2,995,000.

from where the children live and play.â€? It cites a long list of materials already found at the excavation site, including â€œmustard and lewisite nerve agents, arsine gas-filled projectiles, munitions/explosives, vomiting chemical agent,â€? and argues the Army could be â€œfatally underestimating the explosive blast and fragmentation risks.â€? Last week they won backing from D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, who wrote top Army Corps officials that she was â€œgenuinely shockedâ€? that officials are ignoring the â€œelevated riskâ€? to young children, who research shows are â€œmore vulnerable to various toxins and pollutants.â€? â€œThe cost of relocating this family is small compared to the overall cost of this years-long project,â€? Norton wrote. But a reversal seems unlikely, since both federal agencies signed off on a protocol for demolishing the house at 4825 Glenbrook Road and excavating what is believed to be a major burial pit for chemical weapon materials and explosives. With a tent-like â€œengineering control structure,â€? air filtration systems and backup systems to be erected on site, the feds have deemed the work to be â€œwithout significant riskâ€? to homes. The Zandamela/Dieterich family live at 4830 Glenbrook, just across the street, in the only home in the immediate area with young children. Andrea Takash, spokesperson for the Army Corpsâ€™ Baltimore office, said the house at 4825 was demolished late last year, with â€œlow probability excavationâ€? now under way on areas of the property where the Army does not expect to find explosive material. The â€œhigh probabilityâ€? excavation will probably begin in May, she said. In an email, Takash said the Corps will be using â€œproven controls and precautions,â€? and noted that in 14 earlier major removal operations in Spring Valley, â€œthere has been no documented release of concern to the community.â€? She said the Army has relocated a few families in Spring Valley, but only for a few weeks, and only while performing work at those familiesâ€™ houses. â€œAn interdisciplinary team conducted a thorough review of the public health and safety aspects of the project work plans â€Ś [and] determined that the work will be accomplished without significant risk to Spring Valley residents, including those who reside immediately adjacent to the project area,â€? she wrote. But the Army has been wrong before. It began its cleanup of the former weapons testing area in 1993 after utility workers found bomb materials, but shut it down in 1995, saying no further work was needed. Then it reopened the project after a city environmental expert found evi-
dence that several pits used to bury toxic chemicals and weapons had still not been located. In total, the Army has spent more than $221 million and found literally thousands of chemicals, vials, shells and mortar under Spring Valley. When Zandamela and Dieterich bought their house in 2009, they were aware that the Corps was still cleaning up what is formally known as the â€œSpring Valley Formerly Used Defense Site.â€? Dieterich said she contacted the Corps, and was assured that soil testing on her property had come back negative, that the cleanup was slowly coming to an end, and that there was no risk to her family. â€œFamous last words,â€? she said, in a phone interview last week. The couple did an extensive renovation, including an outdoor play area for the kids. Then driving home from work one day, Dieterich said she turned onto Glenbrook, saw TV camera trucks, and learned the Army had found chemical agents at the house across the street. â€œThey reassessed,â€? she said, â€œand eventually determined to demolish the house.â€? â€œWe told the Corps, â€˜Fine, clean up the property, we would like to relocate,â€™â€? she continued. That was in early 2012, and she said the initial response was â€œquite positive,â€? with Corps aides looking at houses for the family. â€œThen hardliners at the Corps took over,â€? she said, and after three rounds of appeals, the relocation request was rejected last week. â€œThese people take forever for everything, and they never admit a mistake,â€? she said. Now Dieterich is wondering when the â€œhigh probabilityâ€? excavation will begin, and how long it will last. She said the Corps has assured her it will install a warning system in case any chemical fumes escape. The family is not banking on a positive response from the Environmental Protection Agency. â€œWeâ€™re now considering legal options. We think about how to get the kids out of the house at our own expense. I want them to be in a safe place. But we canâ€™t pay rent for several years, and pay our mortgage,â€? she said. Attorney Buzz Bailey, who filed the petition and has represented several Spring Valley residents pro bono, said he lost an earlier attempt to protect a family from chemical weapon material in their backyard. But this is â€œa much stronger case,â€? Bailey said. â€œ4825 has huge amounts of hazardous chemical weapons. The explosive risk is palpable.â€? Bailey said the Army â€œdrew a circle â€” a danger zoneâ€? around the excavation project, initially including only the house at 4830 Glenbrook. It has now expanded to circle seven houses. â€œIf they do something for Christineâ€™s kids, itâ€™s a slippery slope for them,â€? Bailey said. â€œThe Pentagon wonâ€™t do the right thing because theyâ€™re concerned about precedent.â€?

Gersten, founder of a Facebook page called â€œGlover Park Traffic Jam,â€? said the city plans to evaluate the lanes in a year, but he wants action sooner. Commissioner Nancy MacWood agreed that â€œthe outcome [of the lanes] is terrible.â€? â– commissioners discussed ideas for the Oyster-Adams Bilingual School to possibly become a magnet school and/or consolidate its lower and middle schools to one campus. School officials have said that the school seeks an even mix of native speakers of English and Spanish; its Woodley Park lower school has a higher number of English speakers, while its Adams Morgan middle school has more Spanish speakers. Additionally, a policy of accepting all in-boundary students has pushed the popular school over capacity. Two Oyster parents said principal Monica Liang-Aguirre wants to consolidate the school to one building and possibly make it a magnet school without neighborhood enrollment responsibilities. They added
that there are four groups of parents working to find solutions, and they will present their work in an open meeting at the Oyster campus Feb. 27.

On Feb. 1, Key students attended a World Family Passport Presentation as we traveled to Colombia. Mr. Bernado Alvarez, parent of kindergartner Martin Alvarez from Ms. Lindenâ€™s class, led the presentation. We learned many things about Colombia, including its geography, animal life, terrain and language. The presentation included a video, popular music, and photos of popular attractions such as Lake Guatavita, which spurred the legend of El Dorado. We also learned about animals such as the pink river dolphin and the Andean condor. Students and staff were also fascinated to learn Bogata is the third highest capital city in the world, rising 8,612 feet above sea level. Students are excited to travel to another continent for our next Passport Presentation in March! I
The first grade has been counting and marking the first 100 days of school. This year, we celebrated the 100th day of school on Feb. 11. Each first-grader was asked to make projects showing 100 objects arranged in groups of two, five, 10, 20 or 50. All of the objects had to be the same and put together at home. Some of the items that students collected and assembled were cereal, Legos, candy, seeds, nails and beads. On Feb. 11, the first-graders shared their projects and participated in different activities. Some of the activities were making necklaces out of 100 pieces of cereal, rolling die and writing down the number that came up most often, and creating a collage out of 100 pieces of construction paper. â€” Joseph Laroski, third-grader
Every year in February, we have Intensive Study Week. We study one subject for the week. This year we studied â€œair and spaceâ€? and visited museums. At the Smithsonian, we watched
an IMAX movie about the Hubble telescope. We saw how a team of astronauts repaired it with lots of teamwork and courage. We saw how stars form in the Orion Nebula and how they die and sometimes form black holes. Another day we went to a planetarium. We looked up at a rounded ceiling that was covered with lights to represent the stars and planets. We saw Orionâ€™s Belt and the Milky Way. Lines drawn between the stars showed us what the whole constellation looked like in the minds of the people who named it. When we visited the UdvarHazy Center, we went into an airplane and see how to control it. We also saw the space shuttle Discovery and a workroom bigger than a gymnasium, where planes and space ships are repaired for display. We visited the observation tower and saw planes land and take off from Dulles Airport. â€” Ms. Tomasi-Carrâ€™s first-graders
Our papier-mĂ˘chĂŠ planets started out a little rough. Our teacher, Ms. George, told us we were going to make a model of the solar system, so we headed to the science lab to begin. We first made a ball-like form out of paper and tape. Each
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 had to be in proportion to the sun. We next worked on the sun. The next day we started to papier-mĂ˘chĂŠ the planets. We massaged the planets with papier-mĂ˘chĂŠ and then put pieces of paper on the planet. The last color we did would be the base color of the planet! We added finishing touches. Mercury used paint. Venus used tissue paper and paint. Earth used tissue paper. Mars used paint and glit-
ter to make a terrestrial vibe. Saturn used paint and more paint. Jupiter used tissue paper. It really looked like it was moving! Uranus used paint and tissue paper. Neptune used cotton balls and pompom strings. â€” Annie Hedgepeth, third-grader

part of the time is used for water polo. Water polo is a contact water sport that is similar to handball, basketball and soccer. This curriculum helps introduce a more directly team-based element to the mainly individual sport of swimming. Throughout the season we have worked on different formations and tactics, as well as facing off against other schools, including Landon, St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes, Sidwell and Georgetown Day. Water polo has helped many of the swimmers develop better teamwork skills. — Collett Preston, Form II (eighth-grader)

This week, in honor of African American History Month, the fifthgraders and their kindergarten reading buddies made a Freedom Quilt. They created quilt squares using different colors of felt, based on basic shapes and designs that were created in the late 1700s. Freedom Quilts were created by African slaves to provide clues for escaping slaves to reach freedom. Quilts would provide signals to escaping slaves or create maps. Legend has it that the quilts were hung from windows to “air out” during the day and escaping slaves would “read” the clues and make their way north to Canada. Slaves often traveled at night and hid out during the day. Members of the “Underground Railroad” would help escaping slaves make their way north by hiding them or providing supplies for their journeys. There are no known “Freedom Quilts” that remain for exhibit, but the legend of their existence and stories remain. The quilt squares from the fifth grade and kindergarten will be on display in St. Ann’s for the remainder of the month. — Kennith Brandon and Maeve Morris, fifth-graders
St. Patrick’s Episcopal Day School
Last Wednesday, St. Patrick’s seventh- and eighth-graders visited the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore. The seventh-graders took a class called “Dry Ice: How Cool Is That?” The eighth graders took a class about nanotechnology. The seventh-graders put small pieces of dry ice inside cups of water and saw the fog coming out. We hypothesized about what would happen if we put dry ice into liquid dish soap. We learned that fire extinguishers are filled with carbon dioxide, which cancels out the oxygen in the air to extinguish the fire, and how carbon dioxide affects our environment. During the nanotechnology class, the eighth-graders placed one drop of nail polish on a thin black piece of paper submerged in water. The nail polish drop spread out to produce a thin film that was only a

The Home and School Association recently met with representatives from the Local School Advisory Team to discuss Walls’ proposed merger with Francis Stevens Educational Campus, located about a mile away. Mr. Thomas Anderson from D.C. Public Schools joined us clarify the plan. Mr. Anderson is the instructional superintendent for the School Without Walls cluster. The community is pleased to hear that options are available with the merger. On Feb. 10, the school held a town hall forum to discuss the merger. There was conflicting opinion, but many tried to look on the bright side by proposing advantages, including one joint budget. The LSAT and HSA provided feedback from the community and agreed to work on a plan with the principal. Most students acknowledge there will be change in the following years for Walls, correlating with steady increase in enrollment. — Eleonore Edgell, 11th-grader
Washington International On Feb. 11, the 10th-graders went to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. We had begun learning about Germany before World War II, but nothing could prepare us for what we would see. One of the most impacting exhibits was a simple room filled with the shoes of those who had been murdered in the camps. The knowledge that this vast quantity of shoes represented a fraction of the total was mindboggling. Full of new ideas and thoughts, we separated into groups back in the classroom and created posters with what we took away from the museum. It serves as a potent reminder of what can happen when people, instead of speaking up against injustice, just watch and do nothing. — Leonardo Mendez and Vishal Ravi, 10th-graders
Washington Latin Public Charter School
The Arts Department raised $2,011 at a holiday dinner, which featured performances from jazz band, dance and choir. The dinner, held at the middle school Upshur campus, was the second arts concert of the year. Parents, faculty and students attended the event. The program included a Bhangra performance by the dance group, as well as holiday songs. As part of the event, Washington Latin paid its respects to the tragedy that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Brandi Clarke and Savannah Miller sang “Angel” together in dedication, which was an emotional moment. Washington Latin mailed cards to Sandy Hook, with each person in attendance given a chance to write a note to the victims’ families. — Cuneyt Dill, 11th-grader
