Blaze Rages Near Water Supply In San Francisco, authorities scramble to fill local reservoirs Tuolumne City, Calif. Crews working to contain one of California’s largest wildfires gained some ground Monday against the flames threatening San Francisco’s water supply, several towns near Yosemite National Park and historic giant sequoias. Containment of the fire more t ha n doubled to 15 percent, although it was within a mile of the park’s Hetch Hetchy Reser-

Monitoring the Fire While the wildfire in Yosemite National Park has put a stop to some backcountry hiking and posed a threat to giant sequoias, the fire has not affected the Yosemite Valley, where such sights as the Half Dome and El Capitan rock formations and Yosemite Falls draw throngs of tourists. Biologists were, however, monitoring whether the fire was affecting wildlife, including four bald eagle nests near the fire-stricken area and a group of western pond turtles that became stranded near the edge of Yosemite. (AP)

voir, the source of San Francisco’s famously pure drinking water, officials said Monday. “Obviously, it’s the water supply of the city of San Francisco, so we’re paying a lot of attention to that,” said Glen Stratton, an operations section chief on the fire. San Francisco water authorities were scrambling to fill local reservoirs with water from Hetch Hetchy before ash taints supplies, said Harlan Kelly Jr., general manager of the city’s Public Utilities Commission. The city is able to move water more quickly out of Hetch Hetchy because of a recent multibillion-dollar improvement

to the piping system. Ash from the 234-square-mile fire has been falling on the reservoir, but it has yet to sink far enough into the lake to reach intake pumps, Kelly said, adding that the city has a six-month supply of water on hand. Water quality remained good Monday. San Francisco gets 85 percent of its water from Hetch Hetchy, as well as power for municipal buildings, the international airport and San Francisco General Hospital. The threat to the city’s utilities prompted Gov. Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency for San Francisco. BRIAN SKOLOFF AND TR ACIE CONE (AP)

The U.S. government is set to run out of borrowing authority in mid-October, leaving the government at a high risk of not having enough cash to fund all operations, including paying Social Security checks and military salaries, officials said Monday.

‘Safe Passage’ to Chicago Schools Thousands of Chicago children whose schools were shuttered last spring arrived to new ones on the first day of school Monday under the watchful eye of police officers and newly hired safety guards, there to provide protection as the kids crossed unfamiliar streets — many of them gang boundaries. No incidents of trouble were reported, police said. While that didn’t surprise parents and grandparents, they said they were still concerned that the city’s show of first-day force — called Safe Passage — won’t keep their children safe in the weeks and months to come. “I think it’s just show-and-tell right now,” said Annie Stovall, who walked her granddaughter, 9-yearold Kayla Porter, to Gresham Elementary School, which is about five blocks farther from home than Kayla’s previous South Side school.

millions of dollars. About 12,000 students were affected. One officer standing outside Gresham Elementary summed up the pressure the police department and City Hall are under this year, joking that children “better not get a splinter or we’ll all be out of a job.” DON BABWIN (AP)

Kerry: Syria Massacre a ‘Moral Obscenity’ Chemical hit called ‘inexcusable,’ setting stage for U.S. action

John Kerry on Monday called Syria’s purported chemical strike “undeniable.”

U.N. Gets Hostile Welcome

AP

Secretary of State John Kerry declared Monday that there was “undeniable” evidence of a chemical weapons attack in Syria, toughening the Obama administration’s criticism of Bashar Assad’s regime and outlining a justification for possible U.S. military action. Kerry said last week’s attack was a “moral obscenity” that “should shock the conscience” of the world. “The indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. By any standard, it is inexcusable and — despite the excuses and equivocations that some have manufactured — it is undeniable,” said Kerry, the highest-ranking U.S. official to confirm the attack in the Damascus suburbs that activists say killed hundreds. The U.S. assessment is based in

Snipers opened fire Monday and struck one of the vehicles in a U.N. convoy carrying a team investigating the alleged use of chemical weapons outside of Damascus, a U.N. spokesman said. The Syrian government accused rebel forces of firing at the team, while the opposition said a pro-government militia was behind the attack. Activists said the inspectors eventually arrived in Moadamiyeh, one of the areas where last week’s attack allegedly occurred. (AP)

Palestinian Deaths Hurt Talks Palestinian officials said they called off a planned round of peace talks Monday after Israeli soldiers killed three protesters during clashes following an arrest raid in the West Bank. But in comments that suggested the meeting had gone ahead as planned, a U.S. official in Washington said “no meetings have been canceled.” The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter with the media, refused to elaborate. The violence, the deadliest incident in the area in years, dealt a new blow to U.S.-led peace efforts,

which resumed late last month after a nearly five-year break. Palestinian officials have accused the Israelis of using the process as a cover to build new Jewish settlements. The deaths of Palestinians further soured the atmosphere.

Monday’s clashes broke out when Israeli forces entered the Qalandia refugee camp, just outside of Jerusalem, on an overnight arrest raid. Shai Hakimi, a spokesman for the paramilitary border police, said hundreds of Palestinians poured into the streets and hurled firebombs, concrete blocks and rocks at officers. The Israeli military said soldiers rushed to the scene to provide backup and opened fire after they felt they were in “imminent danger.” The violence drew fierce Palestinian condemnations. “Such a crime proves the need for an urgent and effective international protection for our people,” Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah said in a statement.

part on the number of reported victims, the symptoms of those injured or killed, and witness accounts. Kerry said the administration had additional intelligence and would make its findings public soon. Assad has denied launching a chemical attack. Officials said President Barack Obama has not decided how to respond to the use of deadly gases, a move the White House said last year would cross a “red line.” But the U.S., along with allies in Europe, appeared to be laying the groundwork for the most aggressive response since Syria’s civil war began more than two years ago. The most likely U.S. military action would be to launch Tomahawk cruise missiles off U.S. warships in the Mediterranean. The Navy last week moved a fourth destroyer into the Mediterranean. The international community was moving ahead even as a United Nations team already on the ground in Syria collected evidence from last week’s attack. But Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Western nations

Western Reaction In addition to John Kerry’s speech, other Western powers stepped up their rhetoric against Syria:

“The suspected large-scale use of poison gas breaks a taboo even in this Syrian conflict that has been so full of cruelty.” — Steffen Seibert, spokesman for German Chancellor Angela Merkel ”All the options are open. The only option that I can’t imagine would be to do nothing.” — French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius ”We cannot in the 21st century allow the idea that chemical weapons can be used with impunity.” — British Foreign Secretary William Hague

calling for military action against Syria have no proof the regime is behind the alleged attack. Lavrov says the countries calling for action have assumed the role of “both investigators and the U.N. Security Council” in probing the incident. J U L I E PA C E A N D MAT THEW LEE (AP)

Islamist Groups Call for Truce in Egypt Standoff

Report: Snowden Alerted Russia Before His Arrival

Two former Egyptian militant groups have proposed a truce between the military and the ousted president’s Muslim Brotherhood group, in a move that highlights the extent to which Islamists have been weakened by a security crackdown. The leaders of the Gamaa Islamiya and Islamic Jihad movements said Monday they called for supporters of former President Mohammed Morsi to cease protests if the government halts its moves against them. Morsi’s allies have previously insisted on his reinstatement before talks, but Islamic Jihad leader Mohammed Abu Samra said the proposed truce had no “red lines.” (AP)

NSA leaker Edward Snowden spent two days in the Russian Consulate in Hong Kong before flying to Moscow on what turned out to be an abortive attempt to reach asylum in Latin America, the respected newspaper Kommersant reported Monday, citing unidentified sources in Snowden’s circle and the Russian government. If true, this would suggest greater Russian involvement in Snowden’s efforts to escape American justice than President Vladimir Putin’s government has acknowledged. The newspaper also reported that Cuba was instrumental in blocking Snowden’s further travels. (AP)

SW Waterfront – Washington, D.C.

China’s most sensational trial in decades ended Monday with disgraced politician Bo Xilai hinting at a love triangle involving his wife and former right-hand man — both key witnesses against him — as he made last-ditch efforts to redeem his reputation. The prosecution countered by saying Bo should be severely punished because he showed no remorse in the five-day corruption trial in the eastern city of Jinan. In testimony, Bo denounced both his wife, Gu Kailai, as crazy and his former police chief, Wang Lijun, as dishonest. He has sought to portray himself as an official who worked too hard to scrutinize his family’s affairs and who was surrounded by conniving, duplicitous people. “He (Wang) was secretly in love with Gu Kailai, his emotions were tangled and he could not extricate

Jinan, China

The corruption trial of Bo Xilai, seen here on Chinese television, ended Monday.

Backstory The ruling Communist Party is using the trial against Bo Xilai to cap a major political scandal unleashed last year when his aide fled to a U.S. consulate bearing revelations that Bo’s wife had killed a British businessman. That scandal led to Bo’s ouster as Politburo member and party leader of the southern megacity of Chongqing, making him the most senior leader to fall from power in years. (AP)

himself,” Bo told the court. He also said that Gu and Wang were as close as “glue and lacquer” and that they had a “very special relationship; I was frustrated by that.” Prosecutors said Monday that the trial proceedings have shown adequate proof of Bo’s guilt on charges of netting $4.3 million through bribes and embezzlement and abuse of power in interfering with a murder investigation. A date for the verdict has not been given. Bo faces a possible life sentence. GILLIAN WONG (AP)

Two projects plus the Purple Line could spark change for area New Carrollton, Md. Unlike many other suburban Washington communities, especially those near Metro stations, New Carrollton in Prince George’s County, Md., has yet to enjoy the kind of development that could make it a destination for people who don’t live there. City and county leaders say they hope that two planned mixeddevelopment projects and the construction of a Purple Line light-rail

station in the area will spur the kind of growth needed to transform New Carrollton from what is mostly a transit hub into a vibrant urban center. For its part, Maryland recently approved the relocation of the Department of Housing and Community Development, with its 380 employees, a project that is expected to jump-start development around the New Carrollton Metro station. An earlier plan for the Maryland housing agency fell apart last year, and one of the developers said it was difficult to finance an upscale development in an unproven commercial market such

as Prince George’s. Some county leaders and developers say poor early planning, economic downturns and plain bad luck have prevented New Carrollton from realizing its full potential. But county and city officials say they are optimistic this time that

two major projects in the pipeline will come to fruition. County officials say the construction of the Maryland housing department headquarters on an empty parcel near the Metro station will provide a model for developers considering transit-

oriented sites in Prince George’s. The new state building is scheduled to open in June 2015. Metro has also reached an agreement with the firms of Forest City Washington and Urban Atlantic to develop a 39-acre site into a 2 million- to 4 million-square-foot, $1 billion mixed-use development to include residential, office, retail and hotel space. The busiest transit point in Prince George’s County, New Carrollton is also the site where Maryland plans to build the easternmost stop for the Purple Line. If funding is secured in time, construction could begin in 2015. LUZ L A ZO (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Dirt Bikes Bring Joy — and Anger Illegal rides show strain between fun and safety in D.C. Washington Riding a dirt bike on city streets creates dreams of YouTube glory for 16-year-old Jacquan Brown. Joseph Wilkinson cruises for stress relief. And Terry Cain finds brotherhood when a pack of riders falls in line. All of them have a problem — the rides they love violate D.C. law. A growing group of thrill-seeking young people take to the streets in off-road bikes and ATVs to perform risky stunts — often inspired by videos and pictures on social media sites — that typically are reserved for open fields or trails. D.C. police say the high speeds, tricks and jumps are a dangerous, even deadly, neighborhood nuisance, especially when packs of 20

or more roar through communities. “I’ve never seen anything like it; these guys on ATVs would ride on two wheels,” said D.C. Police Cmdr. Robin Hoey of the 7th District, which has deployed new tactics this year to stop it. “They are doing all kinds of insane stuff.” Matthew Dursa, 33, who has a

1-year-old daughter, said he doesn’t expect police to catch all the perpetrators: “But I would at least like to see them deter these guys from weaving through seesaws where kids are playing. It’s scary how close to kids and families they are.” Police policy doesn’t allow officers to chase the riders. Instead,

Hoey said, they snap pictures of riders, identify them and apply for warrants, then show up at riders’ homes to make arrests and seize bikes or ATVs that had been reported stolen. Riders complain that police unfairly harass them for activity they see as a harmless alternative to the drugs and violence often present in their neighborhoods. This summer, the tension reached a new dimension as a group of riders filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against D.C. police, alleging the use of excessive force in attempts to shut down the joy rides and confiscate machines. The suit alleges that police routinely violate the nochase policy and go too far to get dirt bikes and ATVs off the streets. It also claims that D.C. police have routinely targeted young black riders, intentionally hitting rear tires to stop them. CLARENCE WILLIAMS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

More than 9 in 10 Virginia police agencies have failed to fully implement guidelines for police lineups and other eyewitness interviewing techniques despite a 2005 state law and several wrongful convictions tied to misidentifications, according to a new study. The finding marks a lack of progress in a state where officials have taken steps to cut down on police errors, while allowing police to apply changes themselves, said report author Brandon Garrett, a University of Virginia law professor. “The real scandal is how few departments have developed best practices after policymakers have bent over backwards to let police

The Issue Eyewitness misidentifications were found in 13 of 16 wrongful convictions discovered through DNA testing in Virginia since 1989. Nationwide, such mistakes have played a role in more than 70 percent of DNA exonerations. Social scientists say that witness recollections are wrong about one-third of the time. Potentially suggestive practices, such as repeated showings of a suspect, can be reduced by simple measures such as conducting “blind” lineups, where the police officer running the procedure doesn’t know which person is the suspect. (T WP)

do this themselves,” Garrett said. Of 144 Virginia police departments and sheriff’s offices that responded to a survey earlier this year, only 6 percent had fully applied a policy approved in 2011 by the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services. More than one-fourth of the agencies relied on an outdated policy from two decades ago. Fortyone agencies had no written policy at all, apparently violating the 2005 state law, according to a paper

by Garrett to be published in the Virginia Journal of Criminal Law. Dana Schrad, executive director of the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police, said her members have been working on adopting changes and will be surveyed again next month. “Clearly we want them to adopt best practices” and apply them through training and supervision, Schrad said. “I’m not going to make excuses for them. They need to do this.” SPENCER S. HSU (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Members of the volunteer group Friends of Stead Park have been circulating at the annual summer outdoor movie series to explain to the public how $1.6 million in city funds is about to transform the relatively unknown acre of green space tucked away between P and Q streets and 16th and 17th streets NW. The money, approved by a D.C. Council committee in May after the volunteer group lobbied for the project, is part of the budget for the 2014 ďŹ scal year, which begins in October. Renovations are expected to begin soon after, so by next year, visitors will be able to jog around a turf ath-

letic ďŹ eld on a running track. There will be a splash fountain for kids to scamper in, benches and trees for folks looking to lounge, and a stage for community programming. It’ll be a big change for a place many people compare to a prison yard, with its high fence and barren landscaping, says Friends of Stead Park board member Kishan Putta. Parents and kids in the Dupont neighborhood already f lock to the park, which was established 60 years ago by a private bequest from Robert Stead for “the perpetual use of the children of Washington.â€? (D.C.’s Department of Parks and Recreation administers the park, with ďŹ nancial support from a private trust established by Stead.) But families tend to stick to the playground, while the majority of the space often sits empty. A permitted athletic ďŹ eld isn’t good for much more than kickball

At the screening of “Meet the Parentsâ€? in July, many attendees said it was their ďŹ rst time in the field. It was only because of the movie that Michael Saleh, 30, ďŹ nally walked into Stead, despite having once lived on the corner. He says he needs a reason to visit a park. “I’m not the type that sits and ponders,â€? the Logan Circle resident said. The makeover may give him, and other Washingtonians, plenty to think about. Putta says Stead Park can serve as a model for how to make the most of every bit of green in the city. VICK Y HALLET T (E XPRESS)

Rex Grossman

Pat White

No Contest for Third QB Only in Washington do fans argue over who should be the third-string quarterback. Now stop such nonsense. It’s Rex Grossman. Some years, it might be inviting to try a prospect like Pat White, who likely ensured a place on somebody’s roster after playing well against Buffalo on Saturday. But with second-year passers Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins already on the roster, the Redskins don’t need any more young quarterbacks.

And with Griffin and Cousins both uncertain for the regular-season opener against Philadelphia on Sept. 9, Washington can’t chance By Rick Snider keeping White over Grossman. Forget that White would cost less than Grossman. Owner Dan Snyder spends more than the difference on gas for his yacht. Never mind that White, if he’s released, could prep a competitor to face Griffin. Opposing defensive coordinators already

spent the past six months watching film. As for developing White as future trade bait: Isn’t that Cousins’ role? The bottom line is if Griffin and Cousins aren’t ready for Philadelphia, which seems unlikely but is still a possibility, then who do you want to start? A 10-year veteran or a second-year player who hasn’t been in the league since 2009? It should be Grossman. Not that Grossman gets the job by default. He earned it after completing 11 of 21 passes for 171 yards and one touch-

down against Buffalo for a 95.5 passer rating. Sure, Grossman almost threw an ugly pick, too, but that’s all part of Good Rex/ Bad Rex. Coaches are always saying forget the last bad play. Focus on the next good play. That’s quintessential Rex Grossman. His greatest asset is confidence to the point of recklessness. He’s a “go big or go home” passer. Grossman is always looking for a game-turning play. “Momentum means every-

The bottom line is if Griffin and Cousins aren’t ready for Philadelphia, which seems unlikely but is still a possibility, then who do you want to start?

thing,” he said. “I don’t understand it, but it’s in every sport. You start to have success, and it breeds more success, and that’s definitely true in football.” White doesn’t have Grossman’s swagger. He knows the harshness of the NFL. After a standout career at West Virginia, White was taken 44th overall by the Miami Dolphins in 2009. He suffered a concussion in the final game of his rookie season. Eight months later, Miami waived White. Then even the UFL’s Virginia Destroyers released him in 2011. The Redskins’ offseason signing of White seemed more about having an option passer in training camp while Griffin recovered. White ran well and showed enough arm strength to merit a second look. It will just have to come somewhere else. Rick Snider has covered Washington sports since 1978. Follow him on Twitter @Snide_Remarks

Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins sprained his right foot on Aug. 19.

QB Cousins ‘No Doubt’ For Week 1 Redskins Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins says there’s “no doubt at all” he’ll be healthy for Week 1 of the regular season. Cousins returned to practice Monday, a week after spraining his right foot in the Redskins’ preseason win over the Steelers. His status is vital because he will be the starting quarterback if Robert Griffin III isn’t cleared to play by the team doctor and coach Mike Shanahan ahead of the Sept. 9 opener against the Eagles. Asked about the possibility of playing in Thursday’s preseason finale, Cousins said: “If someone could grant me a wish and tell me I wasn’t going to get hurt, or I wasn’t going to reaggravate it, then I would like to get out there.” (AP)

Venus the One Pulling the Upset This Time U.S. Open Venus Williams had been 14-0 in the first round of the U.S. Open, though she never had to face an opponent ranked in the top 30 at that stage. Williams was usually the seeded player, but after two years of illness and injury, the seven-time major

champ was the one pulling the upset Monday when she defeated Wimbledon semifinalist Kirsten Flipkens. Her ranking down to 60th, Williams beat the 12th-seeded Flipkens 6-1, 6-2 for one of her biggest wins since she pulled out of this tournament two years ago because of Sjogren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disease.

Instead of trying to coax inspiration out of Siri — who’d rather run a Web search — access a life coach with the ME Clock app (iTunes and Google Play). The free “ME 101” series, a trio of programs to play when you wake up, when you go to bed and while you sleep, hypnotically blends new age-y music with a woman’s voice saying such things as, “I love and approve of myself.” Download more programs, such as “ME RICH” and “ME SMART,” for $20 each.

Cyclists such as Mona Yeh can ride across the Anacostia River at Kingman Island.

A Watershed Moment The Anacostia River is shaping up to be D.C.’s new fitness destination Lee Cain talks about the Anacostia River the way a rock star or rapper might hype a new album. “It’s about to blow up,” he says. As the director of recreation for the Anacostia Watershed Society, a 24-year-old nonprofit organization devoted to restoring the “other” river that flows through the District, Cain is a bit biased. But that doesn’t mean he’s not right. A confluence of projects is set to make the banks and waters of the Anacostia some of the most attractive real estate in town for those looking to exercise. None of it would be possible without the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, a path that’s beckoning cyclists, joggers and strollers to wind their way along both sides of the river.

The D.C. Department of Transportation has opened 12 miles of the 20-mile project, and work is set to begin on the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens segment, a 4-mile stretch that will connect Benning Road to Maryland’s Bladensburg Trail by 2015. That’s likely to be the most scenic part of the route and the most significant: It will link up to more than 40 miles of trails in Maryland.

On the Water As folks are finally finding their way to the river, they’re learning that it’s pretty easy to get on it, too. The Anacostia Community Boathouse regularly hosts 1,000 athletes in clubs and teams. And now other docks are popping up to help meet the demand for water sports

Event Horizon

Bridge Bash On Sept. 7, the District Department of Transportation will host the Local 11th Street Bridge Celebration from noon to 3 p.m. The event will include music, food trucks and info about the project, which features a 14-footwide pedestrian and bicycle path that connects with the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail. Attendees can talk with representatives of the 11th Street Bridge Park about the potential for active recreation on that site. Get more details at anacostiawaterfront .org/11thStreetBridge. V.H.

— and make them more readily available to casual users. “We’re public access to the water,” says Nicholas Verrochi, manager of the Ball Park Boathouse, which became the District’s first kayak rental concession on the Anacostia when it opened July 20. Several additional spots could offer access soon, says Cain, who has been preparing a map of the Anacostia Water Trail. “This will show you where you can access it and experience it,” Cain says of his trail guide, set to be published any day now. One place Cain would like to see another boat option is in the 11th Street Bridge Park, a D.C. Office of Planning project that’s slated to be completed in 2017. The city is building a new bridge between Capitol Hill and Anacostia Park, leaving the existing bridge behind. “So this is an opportunity to rethink how we reuse this architecture,” says Scott Kratz, director of the park project. The goal is to build a linear park on the old bridge that will incorporate active recreation, environmental education and the arts. Ideas being explored include a ropes course, rock-climbing walls and zip lines. What will end up at the site depends on which design wins a competition this fall. But fitness will play a key role, Kratz says, as the park has potential to stitch the community together through activity. Another potential fitness opportunity along the river is at RFK Stadium. A residents group is pushing to turn the sea of parking lots into a community sports facility peppered with playing fields and park space. The group, the Friends of Capitol Riverside Youth Sports Park, envisions a family-friendly amenity that would also reduce stormwater runoff problems caused by all the asphalt. If the city successfully woos the Redskins to that site, though, their games would require that parking.

Though some projects are still up in the air or works in progress, swing by the Yards Park on a Friday night this summer to glimpse the river’s future. Kids are splashing around in the fountains, couples are dancing to live music and dogs are walking their owners — all with a picturesque view of the Anacostia River. A short stroll across the footbridge to Diamond Teague Park brings you to a free catch-andrelease fishing lesson with the Earth Conservation Corps and Anacostia Riverkeeper. Standing nearby is Brent Ferrell, who’s overseeing the rainbow of kayaks available for rent at the Ball Park Boathouse. “Five years ago, I never would have wanted to come here,” Ferrell says. “Trash was everywhere. Now we have osprey nesting.” The birds are evidence that efforts to clean up the Anacostia are having an impact, says Kellie

Places to Paddle The Anacostia Watershed Society (anacostiaws.org) hosts free Paddle Nights every Thursday from 5 to 7:30 p.m. through Oct. 10. The event cycles among four locations — Anacostia Community Boathouse, Gangplank Marina, Kenilworth Park and Bladensburg Park — to give participants a chance to see several sections of the river. No experience is necessary to try canoeing or kayaking. Check the online schedule for details. The newly opened Ball Park Boathouse (ballparkboat house.com) offers kayak rentals from Diamond Teague Park, next to Nationals Park. It’s $15 per hour for a single kayak and $20 per hour for a double kayak. Hours this season are from 2 to 8 p.m. Fridays and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekends.

Establishing more recreational activities will speed this process along, she says. “We just need to get people down here,” she says. “You need to know something to love it.” And the Anacostia needs a lot of love. The Sustainable DC plan, a 20-year blueprint for greening the District, aims to make the river swimmable and fishable by 2032. Because of continued pollution from stormwater runoff, that pristine vision is still pretty far off. But every cleanup project brings it a little closer, which is part of the reason BicycleSPACE incorporated one on Kingman Island into a recent Saturday outing. Group rides frequent the Anacostia trail, says Erik Kugler, co-owner of the Mount Vernon Square bike shop. “When we opened three years ago, there were only two or three stretches of trail,” Kugler says. “We had to cross railroad tracks on foot and scramble up muddy embankments.” He can’t wait for the trail to be completed, and neither can Cain, who is eager for more people to experience the beauty of the river. At one of Cain’s organization’s Paddle Nights this month at Bladensburg Waterfront Park, Lark Catoe-Emerson shepherded her two sons along the dock. The 30-yearold Ward 7 resident didn’t have the nicest perception of the river. (“I’ve heard about dead bodies,” she said.) Her view shifted within minutes when the three set off in a canoe toward a blue heron fishing on the opposite bank. Another creature worth spotting on the river? Gabe Horchler, a 69-year-old Cheverly, Md., resident who commutes to the Library of Congress on the Anacostia by boat and bike. “There’s plenty of room for more paddlers and cyclists,” Horchler says. At least for now. VICKY HALLETT (EXPRESS)

Girlfriend’s Diets Hard to Swallow

BEN CLAASSEN III

My girlfriend is constantly going on all these fad diets. She is not overweight but is always doing some cleanse or going gluten-free or trying veganism or whatever. It is really tiresome. And it limits where we can eat out, which is something I enjoy doing. Is it fair for me to expect her to chill out and eat at Five Guys every once in a while? OVER IT, DC

The Kids Are Ready. Am I? I’ve been home with our twins since their birth, and they’re about to start kindergarten. My husband is pressuring me to go back to work full time, and I’m not ready. I need time to figure out if I want to return to the same field, and I don’t want to have too many transitions in our household at once. But I might feel like I’m slacking if I’m home while they’re at school. CONFLICT BREWING Has he explained why he’s so antsy for you to go back to professional work? Is there a financial, logistical or other reason why it must happen so soon? He may need to know more about how important it is for you to do this transition mindfully, and you may need to know more about why he’s so averse to your remaining at home for a while. You’ve got to find a way to quan-

tify each of your stances and work toward a compromise. So he wants you in an office on Day One, you’re imagining Day 365, and then you go from there. Or he imagines you’ll work full time, you’re thinking quarter time, and you go from there. Once you agree, quantify how you’ll handle the job search, whether it’s in résumés sent or time spent on LinkedIn versus Pinterest.

I don’t know. How often have you chilled out at vegan restaurants with her? I think you’ve got to be honest with yourself about your motivations here. Are you just missing your ground beef, or are you put off by what you secretly consider to be frivolous or flighty behavior? Either perspective is understandable, but the latter might have serious implications for your compatibility, whereas the former might be a more realistic fix. If this is absolutely, truly, solely about food — no small thing, of course — then it looks like separate-takeout-consumed-together will be the Rule of the Day, or perhaps a hot, steamy affair with mall food courts. Finally, I’d be remiss if I didn’t suggest trying out new recipes together.

Knack for Snacks For people who don’t eat gluten, dairy or eggs, Kate Bakes bars offer a quick bite

Antioxidants 101 Pop quiz: What’s an antioxidant? If you’re not

KATE BAKES

Katelyn Sornik wanted something she could stuff in her purse to eat on the go. The problem? The 29-year-old Georgetown resident can’t eat most somethings. “I had food poisoning and it messed up my whole system,” says Sornik, whose 2007 illness forced her to eliminate dairy, eggs, meat and gluten from her diet. “I couldn’t digest like I used to. A lot of my go-to foods were off the table.” The sudden shift inspired her to learn to cook and start a blog — newkidontheveganblock.com — about her culinary adventures. That’s when she started experimenting to develop a snack bar she could actually stomach. In search of protein, fiber and a chewy texture, Sornik blended almond butter, coconut, rolled oats, chia seeds and flax meal with fruits and spices. She added in rice cereal because, she says, “It breaks it apart, so it’s not such a brick of a bar.” Sornik’s mostly organic creations were raw originally, but those weren’t any good when she couldn’t be near her fridge. Once she figured out a way to cook the bars at just

Each Kate Bakes bar has 220 calories, 7.5 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber.

“It’s a convenient food that’s made in a much more evolved way.” — K ATELY N SORNIK , FOUNDER OF THE GLUTEN-FREE, VEGAN LINE KATE BAKES

the right time and temperature so they wouldn’t be “hard as a rock,” Sornik’s friends got a taste — and they persuaded her to start selling. That’s how she started Kate Bakes (katebakesbars.com), which currently sells four flavors of the 220-calorie, 2-ounce bars for $3 each: Banana Cinnamon Oatmeal, Chocolate Coffee, Sunflow-

er Raisin Butter and Cardamom Date. Her successful Kickstarter campaign that ended July 31 netted her more than $5,000 to expand the line to include more flavors and add granola. Kate Bakes products have also just arrived at her first retailer, the Muse Cafe in the Corcoran Gallery (500 17th St. NW, toddgraysmuse.com). The success is a sign to Sornik that she’s not the only one looking for easily portable vegan and gluten-free options. “It’s a convenient food that’s made in a much more evolved way,” she says. Expect more evolution ahead. VICKY HALLETT (EXPRESS)

sure, you’re not alone. According to a recent survey by MonaVie, 92 percent of Americans don’t actually know what antioxidants are — even though 75 percent try to eat foods rich in the mysterious molecules. Antioxidants are substances that protect your cells from free radicals, which are unstable molecules in the body that can cause DNA mutation. These are the three main types of antioxidants: Carotenoids are common compounds found in produce that help reduce the damage from free radicals, fighting off certain types of cancers (including prostate, stomach and colon) and slowing down vision loss in older adults. Carotenoids come in many forms that you might see on food labels, such as beta-car-

Vitamin E helps to protect your body from cell damage that can lead to cancers, heart disease and vision degeneration. Where to find it: In vegetable oils, whole-grain products, seeds and nuts. Vitamin C protects against infection and damage to cells. It also helps firm up your arteries and aids in the production of collagen, which keeps bones and muscles intact. Where to find it: In citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit; strawberries, sweet peppers, tomatoes and broccoli. (REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION

Going Bananas Over a New Line of Muffins When Debbi Minkoff Miller, 49, talks about her Banana Love Muffins (bananalovemuffins.com), she usually doesn’t say “vegan” or “healthy.” And the banana bread recipe she originally used wasn’t either of those things. But as the Palisades resident’s diet evolved over the years, she deleted the dairy and eggs from the recipe and added in whole-wheat flour and applesauce. The result was a feel-good baked good, which she now makes for

the masses out of the D.C. food incubator Union Kitchen. Since the official launch May 20, the muffins have been picked up by local online distributors Washington’s Green Grocer and Relay Foods, as well as the Corcoran’s Muse Cafe. The secret to the moist texture, Miller reveals, is the amount of banana in each mini muffin ($8-$9 a dozen). “They’re free from animal products and fat and they taste good,” she says. “Who wouldn’t want that?” V.H.

Summer Film School Hollywood has a lot to learn from this year’s blockbuster busts and surprise successes The summer of 2013 might be remembered best as the Season of the Collapsing Tentpoles. As megabudget spectacles such as “White House Down,” “The Lone Ranger” and “After Earth” fell apart at the box office, little engines that could — one with a name that was literally “Mud” — proved they could not only survive the competition, but thrive. Studios, which tend to avoid movies that are novel or risky or not based on a comic book because they’re “execution dependent,” may slowly be realizing that everything’s execution dependent, no matter the star, source material or budget. As school starts, here are a few lessons learned that Hollywood may want to study when it plans our next summer vacation. ANN HORNADAY (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Ditch the cape.

Black films don’t ‘overperform.’ They perform, period.

It’s not just about U.S. Even if non-U.S. box-office receipts can’t save a debacle such as “After Earth,” they have tipped the scales in favor of “Pacific Rim,” above, especially in China: Guillermo del Toro’s sciencefiction fantasy underperformed domestically but has more than made up for that in other markets, largely because of his instinctively global point of view.

With successes such as “Fruitvale Station” and “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” this was a great summer for African-American stories on screen — not just because they were good, but also because they were made for modest budgets and marketed with savvy and sensitivity. Take Codeblack Entertainment, which produced “Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain,” above, after researching Hart’s ticket sales and Twitter and Facebook followings. It was one of the sleeper hits of the summer, grossing about $32 million.

“You don’t need superheroes to succeed,” Boxoffice.com’s Phil Contrino says. “If you look at the one studio that had one of the best summers it would be Universal — minus ‘R.I.P.D.’ — and they had ‘Fast and Furious 6’ and ‘Despicable Me 2,’ [neither] a superhero franchise.” Original horror films — such as “The Conjuring” and “The Purge” — defied Hollywood’s tired rebootsequel-franchise paradigm.

$4B The estimated gross of the 2013 summer movie season. But John Fithian, president and CEO of the National Association of Theatre Owners, suggests that studios left money on the table by crowding their movies into an already busy three-month period.

We may be getting over 3-D here, but it isn’t over over there. After a mad rush to convert movies and theaters to 3-D, the 3-D market has matured in the U.S. Less than a third of box-office revenue for two of the summer’s biggest hits — “Despicable Me 2” and “Monsters University” — came from 3-D premiums. Says the National Association of Theatre Owners’ John Fithian, “3-D’s not going away in the U.S. but we have to be more selective in the movies where we expect it to work.”

Even the biggest stars burn out. Two of the biggest stars on the planet — Will Smith and Johnny Depp, above — got rude awakenings this summer when their movies flopped. “The Lone Ranger” proved that a dusty period Western based on a 1930s radio serial — surprise! — won’t connect with young audiences or international viewers. “After Earth” has done better overseas, but probably not well enough to turn a genuine profit.

Let serious dramas save the day. One of the most profitable movies of the summer was “Mud,” an atmospheric bayou thriller starring Matthew McConaughey in the title role; after opening in theaters in April, it played all summer long, still attracting audiences even when it was available on DVD. Similar successes include the midlife romance “Before Midnight,” Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine,” the coming-ofage comedy “The Way, Way Back” and the emotionally gripping urban drama “Fruitvale Station.” All of these winners prove that “the audience is really craving classic filmmaking,” says Howard Cohen, co-president of Roadside Attractions, the distributor for “Mud.” “It was a movie for grown-ups, the kind that’s not getting made anymore outside movies engineered for Oscars.”

Women aren’t the enemy, Hollywood. One of the biggest surprise hits of the summer was “The Heat,” the only big-popcorn movie to feature a female lead (two, in fact: Melissa McCarthy, left, and Sandra Bullock, right). And another dark horse can attribute its success to women: Brad Pitt’s “World War Z” went from disasterpiece to his highestgrossing film, thanks to the women who made up 50 percent of its audience.

ers, a broad brush meant to silence many on the political left, the union movement or civil rights organizers. “The March” is strongest when

discussing the major players of the movement, including King, John Lewis, A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin. It’s weakest when dwelling on celebrities or allowing Oprah Winfrey time to expand on her feelings about the event that took place when she was 9.

For Mike Rosenberg, Passenger’s following grows a fan at a time Music Passenger hasn’t always been a oneman folk band. The group was founded nearly a decade ago by British singersongwriter Mike Rosenberg and his friend Andrew Phillips, and their

first and only recording together, 2007’s “Wicked Man’s Rest,” was a chaotic blend of drum machines, chimes and electric guitars. The sound reflected a band searching for its identity; the collaboration ended when Phillips left in 2009, but Rosenberg kept the moniker as he set off on his own. “I had these songs I knew I wanted to get to people,” says Rosenberg, 29, “but I didn’t know how to do it.” Rosenberg began writing for

Long-term, I think it’s brilliant, because people feel a longterm connection to the project, not just the song on the radio.” He does have “that song on the radio.” “Let Her Go,” from his recent album “All the Little Lights,” has topped the charts in 16 countries.

A half century after the fact, “The March” (9 p.m., PBS) recalls the civil rights March on Washington on Aug. 28, 1963. This gathering of hundreds of thousands before the Lincoln Memorial would culminate in Martin Luther King Jr.’s powerful “I Have a Dream” speech. Narrated by Denzel Washington, “The March” pulls together documentary footage and interviews with veterans of the march, some of whom were teenagers at the time. As it makes clear, the idea for a massive demonstration was the product of a number of overlapping groups with different agendas and personalities. The effort had received a rather hesitant blessing from President John F. Kennedy. Part of Kennedy’s reluctance to embrace King’s coalition stemmed from reports from FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover that some in the entourage were former Communists or Communist sympathiz-

Forbes Dubs Madonna ‘Most Surprisingly Relevant AARP Member’

You’re Not a Newspaper of Record. Remove the Tweet! Brandi Glanville, ex-wife of Eddie Cibrian (husband of LeAnn Rimes) and Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, pitched a fit on Twitter on Friday at LAX. She called a TSA agent she says made her miss her flight “a GIANT F---HEAD,” adding “U have ugly eye brows and smell bad.” On Sunday, she tweeted, “My publicist just asked me to take down a tweet … does’nt [sic] he know that this only makes it worse?” (EXPRESS)

Madonna, 55, is the top-earning celebrity from between June 2012 and June 2013, according to Forbes. She brought in $125 million, beating out Steven Spielberg (second place, $100 million) and Simon Cowell, E.L. James and Howard Stern (tied for third with $95 million each). Though her most recent album flopped, her tour made $305 million. (EXPRESS)
