The not so ‘Real Housewives’ POTOMAC, MD. Before he was an award-winning Hollywood screenwriter, Darren Star was just a teenager from Potomac. His dad was an orthodontist, his mom a freelance writer, and he lived in a big brick house where he used to throw basement parties for his classmates at Winston Churchill High School. Star wrote his first big hit based on those years, a show about the lives and loves of pretty, privileged students. He wanted to call it “Potomac, 20854.” But Fox executives thought it should be about someplace more recognizable. Someplace like, say, “Beverly Hills, 90210.” Twenty-five years later, the little Maryland town is finally getting its moment in the spotlight. “The Real Housewives of Potomac,” the latest installment in the Bravo reality franchise, features six women vying to be queen of Potomac’s social set. “Just up the river from our nation’s capital lies a hidden gem — Potomac, Maryland,” reads Bravo’s promotional material.

Despite lots of drama on TV, Potomac, Md., is much more boring

“Real Housewives” (from left) Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, Karen Huger, Katie Rost and Ashley Boalch Darby hardly represent the real Potomac,

“Its rolling hills, gated mansions, sophisticated prep schools and exclusive country clubs all serve to keep the area invitation-only.” But locals say the show is more fiction than reality, especially in its obsession with class, pedigree and etiquette. “That’s the stupidest thing I ever heard,” says Chamber of Commerce President Adam Greenberg. “That’s not what Potomac is about.” There are not, as the show leads you to believe, nightly

fundraisers and galas in Potomac. And it’s a pretty good bet that the average housewife doesn’t get called a “THOT” — which stands for “That Ho Over There.” The real Potomac, for better or worse, is not a hotbed of hair extensions and catty drama. The real Potomac is beautiful, bucolic and (if we’re being honest here) a teensy bit boring. Looking for excitement? Not much happening here, which is exactly the way most families like it. Potomac Village, at the crossroads of River Road and Falls Road, has a couple of restaurants, including Greenberg’s popular Potomac Pizza. The first episode of RHOP featured Mix Bar and Grill, which is in Potomac, but the other trendy bars and restaurants featured on the show — Sax, Capella, the Graham — are all in the District. “Potomac is, ultimately, a bedroom community,” Greenberg explains. “There’s not a ton to do.” The biggest celebration of the year is Potomac Day, an annual parade with local high school bands, a classic car show and a petting zoo. Not the stuff of riveting reality TV. ROXANNE ROBERTS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Bill would pay people not to commit crimes The D.C. Council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a bill that includes a proposal to pay residents a stipend not to commit crimes. It’s based on a program in Richmond, Calif., that advocates say has contributed to deep reductions in crime there. Under the bill, city officials would identify up to 200 people a year who are considered at risk of either committing or becoming victims of violent crime. The bill doesn’t specify the value of the stipends, but participants in the California program receive up to $9,000 per year. (AP)

D.C. to study opening pot clubs in the city THE DISTRICT The District will begin studying whether to license private pot clubs as early as next year, under a measure that the D.C. Council approved Tuesday, potentially giving residents and visitors places to gather and smoke marijuana socially in the nation’s capital. The council action amounted to a compromise between allies of D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, who had sought to continue a complete ban on pot clubs, and a growing contingent of council members who said they were ready to approve clubs and more fully

implement a 2014 ballot measure that legalized pot possession. However, even in slowing down the effort for clubs, D.C. openly joined a vanguard of mostly Western cities, including Denver, where lawmakers are openly wrestling with how to accommodate fast-shifting public sentiment in favor of greater social pot use in jurisdictions where voters have already legalized possession. In D.C., council members said they were driven to back pot clubs in part out of concerns that current city law, which limits consumption to homes, had begun to

expose more children to secondhand marijuana smoke. Others said widespread disregard for a ban on public consumption in the year since legalization had led to high levels of pot use on sidewalks. Council member Vincent B. Orange, the principal author of the compromise, said the unanimous council vote would “keep momentum alive” for the city to address discrimination in its current marijuana law, including the fact that poor residents in public housing can still face eviction for home use.

BLACKSBURG, VA. Seventh-grader Nicole Madison Lovell was stabbed to death the same day she climbed out her bedroom window, by a Virginia Tech student who got help both before and after the crime, authorities said Tuesday. David Eisenhauer, the engineering student accused of kidnapping and killing the 13-yearold girl, had told officers who arrested him Saturday that he believes “the truth will set me free,” according to police documents. Authorities revealed a few facts about their investigation Tuesday, even as they chased more than 400 tips, trying to reconstruct exactly what happened after Nicole was discovered missing Wednesday. Hours after Eisenhauer’s arrest on Saturday, Nicole’s body was found hidden off a North Carolina road, two hours south of campus. A preliminary report found the cause of death was stabbing, and that she died the same day she went missing, Commonwealth’s Attorney Mary Pettitt said. Nicole used the sites Facebook and Kik, a chat software

especially popular with young teens. A spokesman for Kik Interactive said the Ontario, CanadaLovell based company had helped authorities after she disappeared. In another development, Pettitt said another promising engineering major at Virginia Tech, Natalie Keepers, will face an additional and more serious charge. Keepers is now accused of being an accessory “before the fact” to first-degree murder, in addition to earlier accusations of helping to dispose of the body. The new charge carries 20 years to life

in prison, Pettitt said. The prosecutor said she would not take questions about the investigation. Nicole’s mother, Tammy Weeks, also spoke, describing the health problems her daughter battled and the joys in her short life. “Her favorite color was blue. Nicole was a very lovable person. Nicole touched many people throughout her short life,” Weeks read from a statement. Her sobs then grew louder, until she was ushered away. Eisenhauer, 18, and Keepers, 19, said little at their initial court appearances, and their lawyers have declined to comment. TOM FOREMAN JR. AND ALLEN G. BREED (AP)

There have been isolated reports of transmission through sexual activity. But if the virus is shown to be transmitted readily through sexual contact, it could only further complicate efforts to halt Zika’s spread. “That gives you the plausibility of spread, but the science is clear to date that Zika virus is

Should draft add women?

Top generals: Women, like men, should register for selective service

WASHINGTONPOST.COM WONKBLOG

No surprise: Heavy pot use dulls memory SCOTT OLSON (GETTY IMAGES)

MILITARY The top officers in the Army and Marine Corps testified on Tuesday that they believe it is time for women to register for future military drafts, following the Pentagon’s recent decision to open all jobs in combat units to female service members. Gen. Mark A. Milley, chief of staff of the Army, and Gen. Robert B. Neller, the Marine Corps commandant, both said they were in favor of the change during an occasionally contentious Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on the forthcoming full integration of women in the military. The generals, both infantry officers, offered their opinions in response to a question from Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who said that she also is in favor of the change. “Senator, it’s my personal view that, based on this lifting of restrictions… every American who’s physically qualified should register for the draft,” Neller said. “Senator, I think that all eligible and qualified men and women should register for the draft,” said Milley. After the hearing, Neller added in a short interview that any young American as a rite of passage should have to register for Selective Service.

The comments on women in the draft are the first since the decision to open all jobs in the military to women.

“Now that the restrictions that exempted women from that don’t exist, then you’re a citizen of a United States,” Neller said. “It doesn’t mean you’re going to serve, but you go register.” The comments are a first in the Defense Department. Previously, senior defense officials have said only that the issue would need to be researched following Defense Secretary Ash Carter’s historic decision in December to open all jobs in the military to women without exception. Carter’s action allows women for the first time to apply for a variety of physically punishing positions, including Army and Marine Corps infantryman, as well as Special Operations jobs,

The last military draft The last U.S. military draft was the country’s first peacetime draft. From 1940 to 1973, men were drafted to fill positions in the armed forces because they weren’t able to be filled voluntarily. On Jan. 27, 1973, as the Vietnam War drew to a close, the Selective Service System announced that there would be no more draft calls. The decision came during President Richard Nixon’s re-election. He had promised to end the draft in his campaign. (EXPRESS)

including Navy SEAL and Green Beret. The Defense Department plans to begin implementing associated changes in training and evaluation by April 1.

The Selective Service System has existed for decades, and was created to make sure the military has enough manpower when it is short-handed in a time of war. A variation of it was first adopted in 1917, as the United States prepared to enter World War I. But Selective Service laws have never required women to subject themselves to the draft and face the prospect of being forced into military service. The current version of the Military Selective Service Act requires that virtually all men in the United States between the ages of 18 and 26 register, most within 30 days of turning 18. That includes non-U.S. citizens living in the United States, such as refugees. DAN LAMOTHE (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Research published this week in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine confirms what many of us have suspected for some time: If you smoke a lot of weed, it can potentially do damage to your short-term memory. Professor Reto Auer of the University of Lausanne led a team of researchers who examined data on the marijuana habits of nearly 3,400 Americans over a 25-year period. At the end of the study period, the subjects took a battery of tests designed to assess cognitive abilities. The study found that people who smoked marijuana daily for a long period of time — five years or more — had poorer verbal memory in middle age than people who didn’t smoke, or who smoked less. Auer and his team measured lifetime marijuana exposure in a fantastic new unit of measurement they call “marijuana-years.” Essentially, if you smoke pot every day for a year, that equals one marijuanayear of use. Ditto if you smoke every other day for two years, or once a week for seven years. Among the 3,385 study subjects, only 311 (8 percent) had more than five marijuana-years of exposure. But many drug policy experts are concerned that legalizing marijuana and making it easier to get will cause rates of heavy, problematic use like this to rise. CHRISTOPHER INGRAHAM

nation+world GROUNDHOG DAY

European Council President Donald Tusk, left, speaks with British Prime Minister David Cameron at a European Union summit in Brussels in June. The two are working to come up with a proposal that will keep Britain in the EU.

Europe offers Britain a deal to stay in the EU U.K.’s Cameron praises the proposal but notes there is still work to do LONDON A draft agreement aimed at keeping Britain in the European Union was unveiled Tuesday, opening two weeks of intense negotiations and possibly paving the way for an early referendum on EU membership in June. Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council, sent the proposals to all 28 members of the bloc after what he had called “crucial” talks with the British Prime Minister David Cameron. Cameron told the BBC it offered “real progress” on his

four broad demands, but added that there was still “detail to be nailed down.” Cameron is trying to renegotiate the terms of Britain’s relationship with the European Union ahead of a promised in-orout referendum before the end of 2017. If the deal on the table is approved at a Brussels summit on Feb. 18-19, it could lead to a referendum as early as June. Some critics dismissed the draft provisions for not going far enough to address key issues such as reducing the immigration flow from the rest of the EU. On Cameron’s main immigration demand, an “emergency brake” was offered that would allow Britain to curb benefit

$3.4B

payments to EU citizens for up to four years shortly after a referendum. But it was unclear exactly how such a lever would operate. Cameron’s Conservative government wants to dramatically slash the number of migrants arriving from other EU nations, but one of the fundamental principles of the bloc is the right to live and work in other member states. Cameron says that restricting benefits will reduce the incentives to move to Britain. Britain is a full member of the EU, but is often seen as having one foot in and one foot out, with the right to opt out of certain legislation, particularly in the areas of justice and immigration.

Swinging toward N.H. Hillary Clinton tried to turn a skin-of-her-teeth victory over Bernie Sanders in Iowa into a bit of momentum for her battered Democratic campaign, and Ted Cruz sought to lock in his spot at the top of the Republican field as the presidential candidates packed up Tuesday and sped to New Hampshire. Here are five questions going into next Tuesday’s primary. (THE WASHINGTON POST/AP) WASHINGTONPOST.COM THE FIX

Ted Cruz

How did Cruz beat Trump in Iowa? In a state that has long rewarded conservatives who put religion at the fore, and in a political era dictated by data analytics, Cruz won on the strength of both. His message was perfectly tuned to Iowa conservatives, he used his web of relationships to try to unite evangelical leaders and he invested deeply in data and turnout organization. By caucus day, Cruz had 11,986 volunteers in Iowa and trained captains at nearly all of the 1,681 precincts. Despite stealing the spotlight for months, Donald Trump was outorganized by Cruz in Iowa.

Hillary Clinton

Bernie Sanders

Did Sanders’ rise expose Clinton’s weaknesses?

How will strategies change in New Hampshire?

A self-described democratic socialist who was running 30 points behind Clinton in the polls as recently as November, Bernie Sanders drew support from young people, liberals and independents. The photo finish in Iowa showed that Republicans are not the only voters looking for qualities beyond experience and electability. The most amazing statistic to come out of the Iowa Democratic caucuses: Among voters ages 17 to 29, Sanders won 84 percent of the vote to Clinton’s 14 percent.

The candidates now face a different set of voters and issues heading into next Tuesday’s New Hampshire primaries: more moderate than Iowans in general, and less attuned to religious-oriented appeals on the campaign trail. New Hampshire voters are socially moderate and fiscally frugal and use a primary voting system that allows greater participation by independent-minded voters who revel in upsetting the conventional wisdom. According to recent polls, Trump and Sanders lead in New Hampshire.

For Cruz’s campaign, he had an email out before midnight Monday warning that “I must raise over ONE MILLION DOLLARS in the next 24 hours or I risk wasting our Iowa victory.” But money doesn’t always lead to results. “Jeb Bush spent $15 million and got 3 percent,” Chris Christie said. “I spent $500,000 between all our different efforts and got 2 percent. … I think you’d rather have me manage your money.”

As many expected, Marco Rubio has become the strongest establishment candidate in the GOP field. He made a strong run at Trump for second place in Iowa, an unimaginable result even a week ago. A strong closing kick positions Rubio well for the sprint between Iowa and New Hampshire. He is likely to benefit from a push by the party establishment to get some of the other establishment candidates out of the race. If it doesn’t happen before New Hampshire, a second strong Rubio showing could well force it.

RECORD NUMBER OF VOTERS

The number of people who participated in the Iowa caucuses Monday night, breaking previous record turnouts. More than 185,000 people turned out for the Republican caucus, surpassing the 2012 attendance record by about 60,000, The Des Moines Register reported. On the other side of the aisle, more than 170,000 participated in the Democratic caucus. There was a 15.7 percent turnout rate among eligible voters — impressive by any standard.

What happens now that Trump isn’t invincible? Donald Trump didn’t win Monday night in Iowa, finishing closer to Marco Rubio’s third place than Ted Cruz’s first place. Losing has particular resonance for Trump, who has put his ability to win at the heart of his campaign. By not winning in Iowa — despite every poll conducted in the final 10 days of the race showing him to be ahead — the Trump balloon has sprung a leak. The question now is how he reacts to losing. His concession speech Monday night was remarkably low key. He didn’t tweet in 14 hours. He was not on the morning chat shows. Is that a preview of the Trump we will see on the trail in New Hampshire over the next week? Or will he act as though Iowa either (a) never happened or (b) was utterly predictable — keeping up the appearance of inevitability that has fueled his rise to the top of the GOP presidential field? My guess is that Trump returns to the Trump that his supporters love: boastful, confident and utterly dismissive of any criticism thrown his way. The question is how that will play now that Trump has, at least in one state, been exposed as something less than he promised to be. What Iowa made clear is that Trump won’t coast to the GOP nomination. He now has to have a victory in New Hampshire to keep his still-front-running candidacy afloat and alive. CHRIS CILLIZZA

ACTING MUSICAL THEATRE 1, 2, 3, FILMMAKING or 4-week EARLY options! CHILDHOOD DANCE

Parents at the summer camp and activities fair in Potomac, Md., check out various camp options for summer, but Elaina Clarke, 16 months, is more interested in the dry ice fountain at the Mad Science of Washington booth.

Those crazy days of summer camp prep With lots of options and high demand, it’s never too early to plan ahead In the depths of winter — and in the wake of Snowzilla — a race is heating up for families in the Washington region: securing a coveted spot in a summer camp. Many parents know that the competition is fierce and requires planning more than six months in advance to ensure that their children will have a place to spend the hot and humid days between June and August before classes start up again. “The D.C. area is one of those areas where you can’t wait until April or May,” said Rockville parent Darien Wright. “In years past, we’ve always had to have it locked down by December 31.” The good news for parents is that there are plenty of options. But winnowing the field can be

an intimidating task, especially for moms and dads looking at camps for the first time. On a recent afternoon, Wright joined dozens of other parents at the Cabin John Mall in Potomac for a summer camp fair hosted by Washington Family magazine. Counselors and camp managers stationed booths inside the mall to talk about fun in the sun while the weather outside turned chilly. Representatives handed out glossy brochures for horsebackriding camps, musical theater camps and mad scientist camps with classes on decoding DNA sequences and the principles of flight and aerodynamics, including lessons on how to build rockets and parachutes. Even more specialized camps offered tips for little leaguers with ambitions to become professional baseball pitchers or for amateur singers seeking a future under the glare

of the spotlights. There also was the “Happily Ever After Princess Camp” for girls age 3 and 4, featuring fairytale ballet lessons, “sparkling costumes, wands and tiaras.” For Wright, the search for summer camp options began months ago. By late January, Wright said he had already filled the majority of his 7-year-old daughter’s summer schedule and hoped to explore new options at the expo. “For her it’s ‘Let’s try a bunch of different things,’ ” Wright said. Wright said he’d settled on Terp Quest at the College Park campus of the University of Maryland because the camp is logistically easy — his wife works close by — and also because the camp includes a wide variety of sports and physical activities. “The swimming options are paramount because we’re big CONTINUED ON PAGE S5

into making sure the kids know how to swim so they don’t become one of those adults that don’t know how to swim,” he said. Wright said other important factors included whether or not the camp allowed families to drop their children off early and pick them up late. “As working parents, we want to make sure it’s covering the day,” Wright said. “Those that have extended care are really key for this household. If it doesn’t have that, we don’t even look at it, quite honestly.” Then, of course, there’s price. Some programs — notably sleepover camps — can cost thousands of dollars per week. “You don’t want to be leaving an arm and a leg at the door,” Wright said, but he noted that the expense can be worth it, especially if his daughter is introduced to a new

circle of friends. For Shoney Ponda, the experience of summer camp provides his daughters with the opportunity to try new things. Visiting Cabin John Mall, Ponda noticed one program in particular that caught his attention: Steve and Kate’s Camp, a California-based outfit that combines a traditional camp experience with a techsavvy touch (see page 7). “I’m an entrepreneur and very attuned to business and marketing,” Ponda said. “So when I see something cool, I think I can recognize it. … It was unique.” Ponda said that he had chosen to visit the summer camp fair on a whim, hoping to explore the possibilities for his daughters, age 5 and 6. His ultimate decision to send his children to camp came amid the Snowzilla blizzard, when schools closed for several days. “The last four days has solidified that decision,” Ponda said, noting that his daughters have

“constant energy.” Ponda, a first-generation American born to Indian immigrant parents, said he wants his daughters to spend the summer cultivating new experiences. “[They need] that exposure to different activities,” Ponda said. At summer camp, “they get exposed to a lot of things that

unfortunately I don’t have time to do with them.” Ponda said that he spent many of his childhood summers visiting family in the metropolis of Mumbai (then Bombay) and Delhi. Traveling abroad and being immersed in different cultures broadened his perspective at a young age, Ponda said, and

he hopes summer camps in the Washington region can offer similar stimulation for his children. In the meantime, he wants to provide his daughters with a firsthand experience of their heritage, too. He’s already planning a trip to India in December. T. REES SHAPIRO (THE WASHINGTON POST); ILLUSTRATION BY DOLA SUN (FOR EXPRESS)

The algorithm she’ll need Girls Who Code aims to stem stereotypes about coding careers The group of high school girls sat before a potted plant with wires running down the sides. India Bhalla-Ladd fiddled with a button on the broadboard, a pegboard for electronic devices. Their mission in the Georgetown University classroom: to troubleshoot a plant. “We find if you’re missing a semicolon or a comma, the whole thing won’t work,” said India, a junior at National Cathedral School, referring to the code for their plant-managing device, Plantech. The concept is simple, and genius, really: If your plant needs water, sunlight or a temperature adjustment, Plantech will alert you with an LED light. Eventually, the girls hope it will make watering houseplants as simple as sending a text message. “Every person has, at one point, forgotten to water their plant,” said Sara Berrios, a senior at Westfield High School in Chantilly, Va. The group’s idea sprouted from a seven-week Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program, a camp that aims to combat stereotypes about computer coders and encourage high school girls to pursue computer science

education — for free. In 1984, women represented 37 percent of computer science graduates, according to the nonprofit Girls Who Code. Today, women make up just 18 percent of those grads. Girls Who Code aims to provide computer science education to at least a million women by 2020. Last July and August, about 60 students attended the camp, sponsored by BSA (the Software Alliance), Lockheed Martin and the university. In one of the camp’s classrooms on a sunny August morning, one group was hard at work on a video game in which a kayak navigates

streams while cleaning up oil spills. Nearby, another group worked out kinks on a website that matches people to their ideal pet and guides them to a shelter where they can find it. Li-Ting Song and Milena Orbach were putting the final touches on an app that finds restaurants for people with dietary restrictions. Song, a former vegetarian, said she arrived at the idea when she remembered the hassle of finding places to eat. “We would always have to roam around looking for something, and they would get annoyed,” said Song, a student at West Springfield

High School in Virginia. The girls have a variety of reasons for pursuing coding. Some said it’s the job prospects; for others, it’s a love of video games and technology. But many said coding is simply empowering. Victoria A. Espinel, chief executive of sponsor BSA, said the mission struck a personal chord with her as the head of a software advocacy group. “If there’s a significant portion of the population that is discouraged from going into an industry, then, by definition, you are losing a significant chunk of talent,” Espinel said. “There’s a huge population of smart people that are not going into coding, and we need to have them going into coding.” Back at Plantech HQ, the girls sat in suspense as Stephanie Villanueva, of Woodbridge, Va., poured water over their plant. The water seeped into the soil, and the electronic indicators briefly went haywire. An LED light started flashing pink, indicating that they may have overwatered it. But the girls aren’t worried: Their plant may be cold, but their program is growing better every day. FAIZ SIDDIQUI (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Campers start a game of soccer at Steve and Kate’s Camp, where kids are allowed to choose their own activities.

These campers choose their own adventures Steve and Kate’s Camp lets kids design their summer experience

Summer camp, the age-old childhood rite of passage, was once the realm of muggy mosquitoladen bunkhouses, sunburns, perpetually soggy bathing suits and s’mores-stickied fingers. But in 2016, the summer experience can be so much more. Now there are camps that specialize in rocketry, computer programming and DNA decoding, as well as camps for every sport, dance discipline and academic course in the K-12 curriculum. For families seeking a blend of that traditional camp experience combined with a modern, tech-savvy touch, there’s Steve and Kate’s Camp, a San Francisco-based outfit with locations in nine states and the District. Founded in 1980, the camp was long a mainstay of Northern California before undergoing

a rapid expansion nationwide. Since 2006, Steve and Kate’s Camp has opened more than 40 locations, including three in the Washington area. Steve and Kate’s Camp evokes a laid-back aura true to its California roots, complemented by the company’s Silicon Valley-inspired innovative approaches to everything from programming to payment. The Bay Area influence is

ever apparent on its staff website, which includes a tattooed chef de cuisine who designs the daily menu of healthy snacks for the campers. Each camp site also is staffed with a full-time videographer, who records footage each day for memory reels. Celesta Kirk, a community director for the camp’s newest Bethesda location, said that unlike at more traditional camps,

campers are not grouped by ages or even grouped at all. Kids are free to roam for as long as they like between “studios,” allowing them to chose their own activities and plan their own days, which gives youngsters the power to exercise their independence and judgment, Kirk said. “They get to step into a day and really say, ‘Okay, what am I going to do?’ ” Kirk said. “There’s not an adult telling them: ‘Now you’re going to do this, now you’re going to do that.’ They have to decide for themselves.” In the studio settings, kids get to compose their own music in custom sound booths, knead and craft artisan breads in the bakery and create their own stop-motion movies in the animation lab. “We really step back and let them explore and find their passion,” Kirk said. Parents get to share in the fun, too, Kirk said. Each camper is equipped with a bar code that, when scanned, connects their

STEVE & KATE’S CAMP PHOTOS

summeradventures projects to a website where parents can view their daughter’s video or listen to their son’s original song. Mike Saperstein, one of the camp’s four business partners, said that Steve and Kate’s freeflowing model relays a certain level of respect for children that they are unlikely to find in other parts of their life. “Not all 6-year-olds want to do the same thing for the same amount of time in the same space,” Saperstein said. “They may say, ‘I really hate art; why do I have to be in there?’ … We asked, ‘How do we make kids happiest?’ The answer was allowing them to pursue their inherent interests.” Kirk described a recent camper who was an athlete and excelled on the soccer field. Then one day at camp the boy walked into a studio filled with sewing machines and reams of fabric and textiles. He was fascinated by the equipment and spent the vast majority of his summertime designing and fashioning tote bags. “He might not have chosen that at a different camp,” Kirk said. “I don’t think he would have signed up for a sewing camp.” The camper made eight tote bags in a variety of styles. Kirk said that he was liberated by the experience and the freedom to learn a new skill. He also was free to create and make mistakes along the way, part of the camp’s trial-and-error mantra. “Just telling someone what to do doesn’t develop their passion for it,” Kirk said. Instead, the child got “an awesome feeling of accomplishment,” completing the totes on his own. Kirk said that another difference between Steve and Kate’s Camp is a flexible payment plan that allows parents to pay per day, instead of by week, month or session. “Buy any number of day passes and use them anytime” is the camp’s policy. “Unused day passes will be automatically refunded at summer’s end. ... Any more flexible and you’d need a yoga mat.” That means drop-ins are welcome, Kirk said, a practice that already has proven successful CONTINUED ON PAGE S8

Saperstein, who joined Steve and Kate’s Camp in 1998, has helped lead the company through its expansion to Seattle, Portland, Chicago, Brooklyn and Boston. He attributed Steve and Kate’s success to its try-anything, worry-free vibe that has thrilled kids tired of the constrictive nature of summer camps that more closely resemble strict classrooms. “In school settings, there’s this constant feeling of judgment

from coaches, teachers and counselors,” Saperstein said. “ T hey get g rades a nd do something right or do something wrong.” Saperstein said that kind of thinking doesn’t allow children to grow into innovative, independent-minded adults. “If you only follow recipes,” Saperstein said, “no one ever does something different than what Julia Child was doing.” T.

THREE POINTERS

Young Nats rank high

Kerr plays taskmaster for Warriors NBA After the Warriors nearly suffered a stunning loss at the 76ers on Saturday, only to be saved by a last-second Harrison Barnes 3-pointer, coach Steve Kerr had no problem excoriating his team. And when the Warriors scuffled through the first quarter Sunday against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, he smashed his clipboard in half. Someone might want to remind Kerr that his Warriors, who visit the Wizards tonight at 8 (CSN, ESPN), are 44-4 and on pace to win 75 games, breaking the regular-season record of 72 by the Bulls in 1996. But maybe they need that kind of tough love to make history. “We were really bad,” Draymond Green said of the clipboard fury. “He expects perfection, and we’re never there.”

The NBA is considered to be a player’s league — something reinforced by the first few months of this Warriors’ season, when Kerr, recovering from back surgery, put assistant coach Luke Walton in charge and the team thrived. But Kerr brings special qualities. He quickly showed his value when he replaced Mark Jackson before last season. Kerr inherited a 51-win club and immediately turned it into a 67-win juggernaut and an NBA champion. Still, he tries to deflect credit. “They’re amazingly talented and ... committed to one another,” he said of his team. “We’re not paying much attention to the record. We’re just trying to get better, but we don’t take winning for granted.” To say the Warriors’ spectacular start wasn’t expected when Kerr announced his leave of absence in October is an understatement. But between Walton’s calm demeanor and the players doing their best to prove they

Wizards’ opponent is 44-4, but the coach is back and not relaxing

The Nationals will have three of the top youngsters in the game when they open spring training Feb. 18 in Viera, Fla. Here is how Baseball Prospectus ranks them.

Victor Robles, OF No. 29 overall

He won’t be 19 until May and hit .352 in 61 games last year with two teams in the low minors. Good arm, good speed and a fast learner.

The Warriors’ Steve Kerr, who because of back surgery didn’t coach this season until Jan. 22, demands “perfection,” says forward Draymond Green.

A very hot ticket tonight Still trying to get a ticket to tonight’s Warriors-Wizards game at Verizon Center? Good luck — it’s the hottest ticket to a Wizards game in six years, according to ticket marketplace SeatGeek. The company found that tickets were reselling at an average price of $197, making it the most expensive Wizards home game since at least 2010. (TWP)

could keep themselves steady and focused while Kerr recovered, Golden State exploded to a 39-4 start before Kerr finally returned Jan. 22. “There wasn’t too much

change,” Andrew Bogut said. “Luke let us play like Steve does, and made sure we kept to our principles, and made sure there was no slippage. But we have a professional group in this locker room. I don’t think that situation works with probably 20, 25 teams out of 30 in the league. “We police ourselves. We have veterans and we know what it took to win a championship last year, and that carried over.” That doesn’t mean Kerr doesn’t make a difference. “We need him,” Shaun Livingston said. “When things get tight, we’re going to need his leadership.” TIM BONTEMPS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

2 Trea Turner, SS No. 13 overall

Turner, below, will compete this spring to start at short. He hit .322 in the minors last season and .225 in 40 at-bats with the Nationals.

1 Lucas Giolito, RHP No. 3 overall

He had Tommy John surgery in 2012 but threw 117 innings in the minors last season. He’ll be entering his first full spring p g trainingg with the Nats.

Who will gamble on RGIII? REDSKINS When the Redskins finally release Robert Griffin III, an NFL executive and coach will roll the dice on the Heisman Trophy winner who spent 2015 as a thirdstring quarterback. Of the dozen NFL executives, scouts and coaches interviewed for this story, the majority expressed a belief that Griffin is capable of landing a starting job with a new team next season, citing both the lack of sure-fire talent in this year’s draft and the playmaking ability Griffin showed as a rookie in 2012. Others were more skeptical, expressing doubt over his ability to stay healthy and saying teams have learned how to stop him. An AFC pro scout said “of course” Griffin can still play: “He can make all the throws; he can run. He’s shown that. It isn’t just on the player. Coaching does come into it. You’ve got to be willing to adapt your system to a player’s strengths. … If he finds the right situation, he can be a starter again. For sure.” Any team signing Griffin would do so on faith, because

he produced just two shaky preseason outings in 2015 and an uneven body of work in 2014. A GM said the maturity Griffin displayed in 2015 after getting benched should help his chances. “He handled himself well this year in a tough situation,” the GM said. “It’s probably a good thing to be humbled. … He’s a Heisman Trophy winner, had a great rookie season. That doesn’t just happen.” But as a top talent evaluator from an NFC team noted, there

Manziel exit likely March 9

Kings avoid T-shirt gaffe

The Browns, already expected to cut quarterback Johnny Manziel when the league year begins March 9, issued a statement Tuesday condemning his behavior after his latest run-in with police. “Johnny’s continual involvement in incidents that run counter to [our] expectations undermines the hard work of his teammates and the reputation of our organization,” said Sashi Brown, the Browns’ vice president of football operations. (AP)

Kings center DeMarcus Cousins helped save the club from an embarrassing giveaway Monday. Before fans arrived, T-shirts were put on every seat to salute the Lunar New Year. Because this is the year of the monkey, the shirts had a monkey on the front. Cousins and others noted this was offensive on the first day of Black History Month. Said Kings president Chris Granger: “We all need a lesson in sensitivity.” (EXPRESS)

is a graveyard full of the careers of great college quarterbacks who failed in the NFL. Skeptics attribute Griffin’s rookie success to something that can’t be replicated: an element of surprise. He thrived greatly as a rookie partly because of his world-class athleticism, but largely because he directed a zone-read offense that Mike Shanahan and Kyle Shanahan — Sh taking cues from Baylor’s Baylor s play playbook — tailored to his strengths strengths.

“He was running a system the league had never seen before. Not on that scale,” an NFC executive said. “They didn’t know how to stop it. But coaches are smart. They did their homework in the offseason, came back the next year, and that element of surprise doesn’t exist anymore. So, RG doesn’t scare them anymore.” Griffin had his knee reconstructed between the 2012 and 2013 seasons, and an ankle dislocation sidelined him for six weeks in 2014. The injury history prompted one AFC defensive coach to say that regardless of the team that signs Griffin, or the system he plays in, he will not experience sustained success. “He’s done,” the coach said. “He can’t stay healthy. Running the type of system that he needs to run, his body isn’t able to hold up in the NFL.” One NFC exec said Griffin needs time to refine his game. “His problem is his accuracy, which is a direct reflection of his bad footwork and mechanics in the pocket,” the executive said. “Although he is fast, he is not the dynamic change-of-direction athlete many think he is. This offseason should be all about getting back to the basics for him.” MIKE JONES AND MASTER TESFATSION (THE WASHINGTON POST)

At Super site, new sod should end turf issues SUPER BOWL Will the turf at Levi’s Stadium swallow a player during the Super Bowl on Sunday the way it nearly did Ravens kicker Justin Tucker during a game this season? No way, says the NFL’s guru of playing surfaces. “I think we’re in great shape,” NFL field director Ed Mangan said. The stadium for Sunday’s game is the home of the 49ers in Santa Clara, Calif., and the field has been an issue since the facility opened in 2014. Tucker missed a key field goal attempt during the Ravens’ loss to the 49ers on Oct. 18 when the turf gave way beneath him and his left leg slipped. On Oct. 22, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson had a problem with the field on an awkward slide at the end of a scramble. Because of the turf, the 49ers canceled an open training-camp practice this summer. In August 2014, the 49ers ripped out the grass twice in an effort to get the right feel and avoid the sight of flying chunks of sod. The NFL has put down a new playing surface for Sunday’s game, just as it does for all Super Bowls played on natural grass. The new turf is 17 months old. The field was stripped, laser-graded and re-sodded last month. “The 49ers did a great job of working their bugs out,” Mangan said. “I got it after they made their fixes and solved their problems.” MARK MASKE (THE WASHINGTON POST)

COMING SOON

Duke’s Counter 3000 Connecticut Ave. NW

Brunch runneth over DAY-DRINKING AND CARBO-LOADING IN THE NAME OF BRUNCH WILL NEVER GET OLD. That blasé pitcher of mimosas, on the other

hand.… Brunch regulars are looking for variety beyond what has become the standard, and they’re finding it on more creative drink menus across the city. These five spots have come up with novel beverage offerings while honoring the whole point of weekend brunch: the copious amounts of booze. TEXT AND PHOTOS BY LANI FURBANK (FOR EXPRESS)

A barrel of Old Fashioned and bottleservice mimosas

Bottomless meadmosas

Carafes of chilcanos

Barrel, 613 Pennsylvania Ave. SE; 202-543-3622, barreldc.com

Beuchert’s Saloon, 623 Pennsylvania Ave. SE; 202-733-1384, beuchertssaloon.com

For groups of four, Barrel offers a liter of Old Fashioneds in a barrel ($50). It’s served with flavored syrups, large ice cubes and citrus peels for garnish. For something lighter, try the bottomless make-your-own mimosas ($20), which include bottle-service champagne, juices and syrups. The syrups for both options may be fruity (pineapple and strawberry thyme), herbal (winter spice and lemongrass vanilla) or wacky (Cocoa Puffs).

Beuchert’s mixes Charm City Meadworks’ Basil Lemongrass mead (fermented honey and water) with orange or grapefruit juice to create the meadmosa. “When people think of mead, they think Renaissance fair: super-high alcohol, really thick and syrupy,” general manager Ed Howard says. “But this is actually the opposite.” More like a beer than a wine, the mead ($18) is served on tap and is very dry, with hints of basil.

Beard Papa’s bakery opens in Georgetown

China Chilcano, 418 Seventh St. NW; 202-7830941, chinachilcano.com

“Everybody knows about the pisco sour,” assistant general manager Nick Porter says. “And then there’s the chilcano, which is what locals [in Peru] would drink.” The favorite — available in carafes during brunch ($32-$61) — is made with pisco, lime juice, simple syrup, ginger ale and aged Peruvian bitters made with more than 30 herbs and spices. The drink can be spiced with various infused piscos, called macerados. Seasonally, the bartenders experiment with farmers market ingredients.

Bottomless brunch cocktails

Bottomless Wu-Tangmosas

El Centro D.F., 1819 14th St. NW; 202-328-3131, richardsandoval.com/ elcentrodf

Satellite Room, 2047 Ninth St. NW; 202-5062496, satellitedc.com

A dream come true for the indecisive brunchgoer, El Centro slings eight cocktails for bottomless brunch ($35). In addition to mimosas and bloody marys (or bloody marias, made with tequila instead of vodka), guests mix and match margaritas, micheladas and spiked aguas frescas. Bar manager Jordan Lee recommends pairing a michelada with the Mexican “Benedict,” a poached egg, pork carnitas, black bean puree and salsa verde on a corn sope.

Satellite Room has taken Tang, the “juice” of choice for many middle schoolers, and repurposed it for adults: The neon orange Wu-Tangmosa ($15) is a mix of Tang and champagne. General manager Courtney Williamson says it has to be mixed in massive, multigallon vats to meet the demand. The drink is a nod to Satellite’s appreciation of classic hip-hop, and a way to incorporate the Wu-Tang Clan (whose music is pumped through the speakers on Wednesdays) into brunch.

At Barrel, groups of four can sip on a liter of Old Fashioneds served in a miniature barrel.

Duke’s Grocery, the Dupont hang with an East London twist, is opening a second iteration in Woodley Park, to be called Duke’s Counter, in the space that formerly held Zoo Bar Cafe. “We’re going to maintain that welcoming fun vibe,” managing partner Daniel Kramer says of the space, located directly across from the National Zoo. “We’re excited to join the Woodley Park community and to have a super, super cute neighbor named Bei Bei.” The menu will be similar to Duke’s Grocery’s, with the addition of a few items such as fish and chips and a children’s menu. Kramer anticipates the new spot will open sometime this year after an interior rehab.

Don’t fret: Duke’s Grocery favorites like the Proper Burger will be served at Duke’s Counter.

entertainment

‘Younger’ is better: TV Land comedy hits all the marks TV Land — the home of endless “Roseanne,” “Gilligan’s Island” and “Golden Girls” reruns — isn’t the most obvious place to find a smart and funny sitcom about millennial culture. So I wasn’t expecting much from “Younger,” a TV Land original starring Sutton Foster as a 40-year-old recent divorcee who poses as a 26-year-old to get a job as an assistant in book publishing (because apparently no one in publishing has a job for a 40-something who quit the industry to be a stay-at-home mom). I won’t blame you if you stop reading after that sentence. The premise of “Younger” seems flimsy at best. Foster’s Liza, the mother of an 18-yearold, certainly looks youthful, but how could she fool other 20-somethings and peers who are her actual age? To make things more complicated, Liza starts dating a 26-year-old

tattoo artist named Josh (Nico Tortorella) and befriends a junior book editor named Kelsey (Hilary Duff), who takes Liza under her wing. Neither of them (nor their 20-something friends) can tell that Liza was actually born before the Internet was a thing. Yet “Younger,” which debuted last year and returned for a second season last month, manages to overcome its thin, implausible premise with sharp writing and unexpected insight into what life’s like both at 26 and 40. Much of the humor, of course, comes from Liza’s crash course in millennial culture: She clumsily dives into Twitter, awkwardly texts Josh and nearly dies in a CrossFit class. Foster imbues the character with a youthful enthusiasm and manages to believably play both sides of Liza. (Duff, on the other hand, is often unintentionally funny, playing Kelsey as if she’s aware she’s in a TV show.) Based on the Pamela Redmond Satran novel of the

Former DA: Cosby is shielded from prosecution

Lady Gaga to perform Bowie tribute at Grammys

Bruce Castor, the former district attorney who declined a decade ago to bring sex-crime charges against Bill Cosby, testified Tuesday that he believes a non-prosecution agreement he made forever closes the door on prosecuting Cosby. The current DA said there is no record of any such agreement. Also Tuesday, model Chloe Goins dismissed her sexassault lawsuit accusing Cosby. (AP)

Lady Gaga will pay tribute to the late David Bowie during the Grammy Awards later this month. The Grammys announced Tuesday that Gaga will perform a “multisensory tribute” to Bowie at the Feb. 15 ceremony in Los Angeles. Nile Rodgers, who worked with Bowie on the 1983 hit “Let’s Dance,” will be the musical director for Gaga’s tribute. (AP)

same name and created by “Sex and the City’s” Darren Star, “Younger” moves at a quick pace that — especially as I binged all 10 episodes of Season 1 in a single weekend — makes it feel more like a feature-length romantic comedy than a traditional sitcom. Nearly every episode picks up right where the last one left off, making it the kind of show that would benefit from a Netflix-style release

rather than TV Land’s weekly schedule, with new episodes airing Wednesdays at 10 p.m. (Season 1 is available via most On Demand cable providers.) With its silly premise, “Younger” may seem like an odd fit for TV Land. But just like Foster’s Liza, looks can be deceiving. For more of Rudi’s comedy musings, follow him on Twitter: @rudigreenberg.

Beneath the deadening lack of racial diversity in American publishing lies a subtler, affiliated kind of redlining. Whether it’s a barrier constructed of ignorance or cemented by anxiety, it serves to keep most novelists — particularly most white novelists — working within the realm of their own racial heritage, creating characters that look like they do. Almost 150 years after Mark Twain sent Jim down the Mississippi River, we still can’t decide if that portrayal was a breakthrough or another inscription of racism. But no matter how much the country has changed, there are few towns in America as monochromatic as the towns in American fiction. Even as we try to encourage more diverse books, our eagerness to rain hellfire on authorial missteps and insensitivities has increased. Into this fraught discussion now comes Charlie Smith, a 67-year-old white Southerner, who has just published a gorgeous, harrowing novel called “Ginny Gall,” in which essentially all the characters are black. The protagonist is Delvin, born in 1913 in Tennessee. His mother unintentionally kills a white man and runs for her life, leaving her son behind. Without sentimentality or condescension, Smith follows Delvin across the South, through periods of peace and sparks of terror, months of romance and long trials of despair. RON CHARLES

The real-life brothers, shown here in 2010, recently announced that they had created a licensing program — the first of its kind in the history of YouTube — in which they would trademark the “react” format and allow other people to mirror it in exchange for a slice of the profits. There was an immediate backlash. With their subscription numbers dwindling, the Fine Bros. wrote an article on Medium in which they promised to discontinue the practice. But it might have been too late — plenty of people online said they still wouldn’t resubscribe to the channel.
