Rental assistance report disappoints seniors, council

Bowie staff discourages pursuing rent control, cash assistance BY


Bowie seniors have complained that rent increases do not reflect the cost of living adjustment and asked the City Council to consider measures to stabilize rent, but they were disappointed with results of a city staff report Monday advising against the assistance.

Bowie High track changes delayed Grant won in 2013 still not applied, students must practice at neighboring schools BY


Some Bowie High School athletes are hoping a track renovation project they were promised will pick up speed so they can practice at their own school. The athletic department at Bowie High won a $17,000 grant from Muscle Milk nutrition supplement company last year, and has been waiting 16

months for the county school system to put the money to use and launch a project that would overhaul the school’s track area — adding a long jump runway, repairing the shot put area and upgrading the discus area, Bowie High athletic director Jessica Brandt said. During the track season from November to May, 11 of Bowie High School’s 12 weekly track meets need to be held at other facilities because the school’s track is not up to par, Brandt said. “The kids who were here when we got the money have graduated already,” Brandt said. “It’s just ridiculous they’re

Plan calls for 40 percent of jobs to go to residents after National Harbor casino opens




Under a new agreement signed by Prince George’s and MGM Resorts International officials Tuesday at least 20 percent of construction jobs for the new MGM casino must go to county residents with the goal of 40 percent of jobs going to residents once the casino is operational. “After months of negotiating, I am proud to say that we have reached


keeping $17,000 from the kids.” The grant was the only one Muscle Milk awarded to a Maryland school last year and totals more than the entirety of Bowie High’s annual sports budget from the county, which totals $16,000 for 27 varsity and junior varsity sports, Brandt said. The Bowie High athletic department applied for grant in the fall of 2012 and was awarded it in spring of 2013, but despite multiple calls to the school system and several contractor estimates, the track project still hasn’t

Despite concern from residents about potential traffic hazards, the Greater Bowie Chamber of Commerce affirmed its support for the proposed Amber Ridge residential and retail center rezoning request at its annual meeting. The developer, McLean-based The Rappaport Companies, originally intended to build a 200,000-squarefoot commercial shopping center on the vacant land near the intersection of Pointer Ridge Drive and Crain Highway. According to the rezoning

a deal with MGM that ensures this facility will have a transformative impact on our residents, businesses and communities,” said County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) in a statement. “The goals for local hiring and contracting in this agreement are both ambitious and fair.” The agreement sets minimum “best effort” goals for hiring of county residents, as well as higher goals. Goals are set for the hiring of County-Based Minority Businesses during the construction and operation phases. The agreement also creates a fiveperson Oversight Committee and

request, the Amber Ridge property would instead be developed as a mixed-use, transportation oriented center with 320 housing units, a pharmacy and a bank. Residents are worried it will be dangerous to exit onto Crain Highway from the property. Kelly Pierce, executive director of the Greater Bowie Chamber of Commerce, said the GBCC supports the Amber Ridge rezoning because the project would bring more business to the area. “The board made the decision to support it because the property has been dormant for many, many, many years,” said Pierce. “It’s better to have property that is developed than property that is sitting vacant. It’s better for the tax base of the community at large.”

The Senior Citizen Rental Assistance report evaluated whether a rent control ordinance, such as the one in Takoma Park, or a cash assistance program would be viable solutions. The report concluded that a rent control ordinance would deter property owners from investing in Bowie residential communities, said Jesse Buggs, the director of the city’s office of grant development and administration.

and health screenings as well as a keynote address from Ruben Studdard, American Idol winner and Biggest Loser contestant. Karyn Wills, a medical doctor who is a member of the First Baptist health ministry, said the expo began as an effort to educate churchgoers about their health. Major health issues in the Upper Marlboro community include chronic diseases and preventable conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity, Wills said. “People go to see the doctor if it is painful or bleeding or if they can’t breathe, but a lot of times a number of people ignore symptoms, particularly

Author says parents need code of conduct Camp Springs writer’s book details behaviors to aid students’ education n

Free library lunch service kicks off Program available for children 2 to 18





Theresa Proctor of Camp Springs said she learned through hard experience that making changes in her own attitudes and behaviors could make her son, Omar, a better student. “Students have a code of conduct, and I believe that as parents, we should have a code of conduct too,” Proctor said. Proctor’s new book, released in May, titled “The Parent Code of Conduct,” features chapters on rights and responsibilities, dress, attendance, disruptive behavior and punctuality. Proctor said the information in the book is based on her own experiences and trials as a parent of a son with behavioral problems in school. “There were suspensions. There were weekly calls from the teachers and the administrators, to the point where it was even suggested that he be placed on medication,” Proctor said. “There were times when I didn’t know what I would do.” The 18 “codes of conduct” are lessons Proctor said that she learned, or picked up from others, on how to be an effective advocate for her child and to improve his educational experience. Proctor had a book launch June 12 at the South Bowie Branch Library. Nikki DeSilva, who served as mistress of ceremonies for the book launch, said that while the codes are written with parents in mind, they contain valuable advice that anyone who comes into contact with children can apply. “Even if you’re not a parent, if you’re a grandparent, if you’re a godparent or a friend,


Starting Monday, Prince George’s County libraries is offering lunch to children who depend on the free lunch program provided through their schools. The program, which is open to children ages 2 to 18, is a partnership between the Prince George’s County Memorial Library System, Partnership to End Childhood Hunger in Maryland and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. “It’s going to make sure that a child gets at least one meal a day,” said Michelle Hamiel, associate director for public services with the Prince George’s County MeGREG DOHLER/THE GAZETTE

Temple Hills resident Theresa Proctor stands at the launch party for her book, “Parent Code of Conduct,” at the South Bowie Library on June 12. you can appreciate this book,” DeSilva said. “Before I was a parent, I heard, ‘It takes a village.’ Now that I’m a parent, I understand, ‘It takes two villages.’” One example from the “code,” Proctor said, was that she learned to visit her son’s school frequently, not just when she received a call from the school about her son’s behavior. Proctor said the change stopped her son from using bad behavior as a way to get attention from her. “He knew that Mom cares, that Mom comes to the school even when she does not receive a call,” Proctor said. Another example, Proctor said, was to always turn the conversation about her child

away from the negative when dealing with school officials. “I would go to parentteacher conferences where it was all negative. But every single time, I would shift that conversation to the positive, to the point where they would ask me, ‘What do you do for a living?’ and I would respond, ‘I am an advocate for my son,’” Proctor said. Proctor said that her “other job” is as a senior level vice president for Philadelphiabased Tracy Lynn Jewelry. “Without these steps, I don’t believe we could have transitioned to where we are today,” Proctor said. Omar Proctor just graduated from High Road Academy in Laurel and will be attending Anne Arundel Community Col-

lege in the fall. Paulette Gentry of Clinton said she read the book coverto-cover in one week. Gentry said her daughter, Danielle, is a rising seventhgrader with special needs. “Her book really helped me to understand the school process and how to be a successful advocate for my child,” Gentry said. “It made me realize that I need to focus on the positive, to help my child be the best she can be.” The book can be found for sale online at or at janfenson-comeau@

The game will be the second annual softball competition between the two teams to raise awareness about and support for Special Olympics, said Bennie Henderson, a Bowie police spokesman.

“We did it for the first time last year and it was an amazing event,” he said. “It was a close game. I think we won by one point. I’m looking forward to the competition.” The event will also include police car displays and an appearance by McGruff the Crime Dog, Henderson said. The game will begin at 4:30 p.m. following the Bowie Baysox vs. Binghamton Mets game. Tickets cost $10, which includes both games. For more information, contact Sgt. Henderson at 301-5751824.

Eric Brown (left), the Prince George’s County director of housing and community development, and County Executive Rushern L. Baker III announce the winner of the county’s third annual house lottery at the county’s housing fair Saturday.

Second place is good enough for county housing lottery First-place winner declines prize to purchase District Heights home n



Catherine Gantt said she was convinced that the house on Keystone Manor Court in District Heights would be her home. But when her name was not announced at the Prince George’s County housing fair as the winner of the house lottery Saturday afternoon, she said was devastated. “I had high hopes. I had my support team in place,” Gantt said. “I’ve never prayed so much in my life. I’ve dreamed about living in this home. I just knew it was mine.” So when the 36-year-old from Washington, D.C., got the call Tuesday morning that the lottery winner, Porsha Hartwell, decided not to accept the prize after a previous bid on another home was accepted, she realized her dream would come true. “I was just so excited. Tears just came down,” Gantt said. “Words can’t express how I feel. I’m just so glad.” Gantt is now the winner of

the county’s third house lottery, a raffle that gives eligible families the opportunity to purchase a renovated home in Prince George’s County with up to $30,000 in financial assistance. Gantt, who said she has spent more than a year looking for a home to share with her daughter, is looking forward to buying the home and hosting family get-togethers. “I’m happy to be able to share my home with the rest of my family,” Gantt said. “It’s not just a win for me, but a win for us.” Nine families applied to the contest, but only three families met requirements such as being first-time home buyers and being pre-approved by a lender for a $200,745 loan. Saturday’s housing fair, which was held at the Sports and Learning Complex in Landover, featured more than 50 exhibitors who provided prospective homeowners with information on borrowing loans, caring for their property and even furnishing their kitchens. Linda Raysor, 23, of Capital Heights attended the housing fair with her mother, Gwen Raysor, 53, also of Capital Heights. Linda Raysor, a registered nurse,

said she is planning to buy her first home and said an explanation of the home buying process from an M&T Bank representative was helpful. “A lot of times people don’t know what to do,” Linda Raysor said. “It’s good to be educated on it so when it’s time to purchase your home, you know what to do.” Margeau Gilbert, a Laurel based real estate agent, answered questions related to all aspects of home buying and ownership. She said this housing fair is a critical service for prospective homeowners. “These people are hungry for information,” Gilbert said. “They don’t know where to go or who to trust. This is a service that people need.” For renters like Sheila Baker, 54, of Largo, the housing fair is a chance to obtain all the information she needs to make her goal of homeownership achievable. “It can be an investment for me and a tax write-off,” Baker said. “With the many years you work on your job, you should be able to accomplish something like purchasing a home.”

Sheriff’s summer academy kicks off Free sessions will be held in Temple Hills n



The Prince George’s County Office of the Sheriff is offering two sessions of its Deputies Assisting Youth Corps Summer Academy for middle school students in Temple Hills. During the D.A.Y. program, students will learn about etiquette, conflict resolution, bullying, gangs and substance abuse, said Sgt. Paul Washington, the director of the program. “Our goal is that once they leave our D.A.Y. Corps Summer Academy, they will have a better understanding of law

enforcement and just have a better idea of how to deal with conflicts that arise in their lives,” Washington said. The academy will feature guest speakers and field trips to the Air and Space Museum, the Martin Luther King, Jr., Memorial and the Bolling Air Force Base in Washington, D.C. For Washington, the most rewarding aspect of the program is giving youth the opportunity to have new experiences, such as watching the honor guard at the air force base. “We enjoy that the kids can experience something they may have never experienced before, That gives us the most joy,” Washington said. The program is free and open for children ages 11 to 14. The first session of the academy

will take place June 30 through July 11 at Thurgood Marshall Middle School, 4909 Brinkley Road in Temple Hills. The second session will be held from July 21 to Aug. 1 at Benjamin Stoddart Middle School, 2501 Olson St. in Temple Hills. Both programs will be held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.. Each participant will also receive a free breakfast, lunch and snack. For more information on the summer academies, contact Sgt. Washington at 301-780-2574 or email

MGM brings ‘career showcase’ to Bowie School programs safe Job opportunities forum will be shared at Bowie State University n




Prince George’s residents are invited to attend the MGM National Harbor “Career Showcase” today, a free event for residents to learn about career opportunities with the upcoming destination resort. The showcase, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., will be held at Bowie State University and more than 2,000 have already RSVP’d for the showcase, said Gordon Absher, vice president of public affairs for MGM Resorts International. MGM National Harbor, a gaming resort project contains diverse employment opportu-

nities in more than 100 categories, Absher said. Examples of MGM positions include a spa manager, sous chef and front desk clerk, Absher said. “There’s so much more to what we do than just the casino,” Absher said. “It’s a facility that’s going to employ people of almost every possible skill set, whether you are far along or just getting started. There will be a position you will qualitify for.” Absher said the gaming resort, with an anticipated opening of summer 2016, will feature attractions including 3,600 slot machines, more than 100 table games, a rooftop pool, numerous restaurants and a 1,200-seat theater. The resort is looking to hire and train 4,000 applicants, he said. “We want people who

come to the showcase to leave with a better understanding and to leave with where their career may fit into an MGM resort,” he said. MGM is partnered with the American Red Cross and has implemented the “Boots to Business” program, a plan that helps military veterans transition into the workforce, said Robin Arnold, veteran employment coordinator for the American Red Cross. The veteran program, now in its second year, is beneficial for those returning from service, Arnold said. “Our veterans are retiring and they’ve got so many soft skills like leadership and integrity— so many skills that transfer into corporate America.” The showcase will also present opportunities for recent college graduates through

the Management Associate Program, Absher said. The 12-month program allows trainees to gain experience while working in different MGM departments and upon commencement, graduates are placed in entry-level positions with the company. Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III said the casino will highlight the talent of local businesses. “For companies that are local, there are going to be opportunities for you to show your talent for a wider audience,” Baker said. “The wider audience is going to be international and will look at National Harbor as the place to go. It’s going to be such a beautiful facility.”

from budget shortfall n

Final approval set for June 26


While the Prince George’s County school system will absorb a small budget shortfall, it won’t affect CEO Kevin Maxwell’s plans including staff additions, class size reductions and creating three English-Spanish immersion schools. During the June 12 school board meeting, Maxwell said the $6 million difference between his $1.8 requested budget and the budget approved by the Prince George’s County Council can be reconciled through internal adjustments. “We’ll be able to do all of the things next year that we wanted to do. We’ll be able to accomplish bringing up the new programs we want in place, to accelerate learning, to reduce paperwork, to add staff [and] lower class size,” Maxwell said. The school system’s legal expenses are less than anticipated, and the system has found $3.2 million in energy efficiency savings, said Thomas Sheeran, acting chief financial officer for the school system. “Throughout the budget process, we’re always trying to reevaluate our numbers, making sure we’re not missing anything,” Sheeran said. The Board of Education is expected to approve the final changes to the budget during its June 26 meeting. Maxwell’s $1.8 billion budget is 6.7 percent higher than the previous year’s budget, and includes $44 million for new programs and program expansions, including the creation of

three new Spanish language and dual English-Spanish immersion schools, with a total of 300 available kindergarten seats, 250 additional seats for Montessori and French language immersion, 295 additional Talented and Gifted center seats, and 300 seats for International Baccalaureate programs. The budget also includes funding for arts and environmental studies education and for the addition of 61 parent liaison positions. The Prince George’s County Council approved the CEO’s requested budget, one of the largest in the school system’s history, with little change. “This was the easiest budget reconciliation I’ve seen in years,” said Kenneth Haines, president of the county teacher’s union. School board chair Segun Eubanks agreed, attributing it to the close cooperation between the county and school system. “This is the first time in a while with absolutely no changes, and with a tremendous amount of support, both public and private,” Eubanks said. “The school board, the school leadership, the County Council and the county executive are all on the same page, making the kind of investments that we need to make to really move our schools forward. David Cahn, co-chair of the education watchdog group “Citizens for an Elected Board,” said increased funds need to be accompanied by improved openness and engagement with the community in order to improve educational outcomes. janfenson-comeau@

Horse show to benefit breast cancer research More than 200 riders expected to trot in Upper Marlboro event




Riders will be saddling up to help trot out cancer in Upper Marlboro as part of a fundraiser to benefit breast cancer research. The Potomac Valley Dressage Association will host the 11th annual Ride for Life show Saturday and Sunday at the Showplace Arena and Prince George’s Equestrian Center, 14900 Pennsylvania Ave. in Upper Marlboro. The competitive equestrian sport event is free and open to the public, said Jeannette Bair of Woodbine, the co-chair of the show. PVDA member Pat Artimovich of Columbia said she came up with the idea in 2003. When she was being treated for breast cancer in the early 2000s, she made it her mission to start riding horses again. When she got back in the saddle as a survivor, she recognized the opportunity to support breast cancer research through her sport.

“I wanted to essentially combine my passion with a purpose, and the purpose here was to help others become survivors,” Artimovich said. All donations will fund a surgical oncology fellowship at Johns Hopkins Breast Center, where Artimovich was treated for her cancer, said Lillie Shockney, the administrative director of the center. From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, attendees can see 160 horses and 200 riders saddle up and show off their gaits, paces and movements in a standard dressage show. There will also be a freestyle event Saturday at 5 p.m. Artimovich said breast cancer survivors have participated in the show as riders, judges and volunteers. Artimovich said she rented a horse so she could participate in last year’s anniversary show. “For me, it was coming down center line and returning to your sport and saying I survived, I lived, I rode. And that is a victory,” she said. For more information about the show or to donate to the Johns Hopkins Breast Center, visit the PVDA website, http://

Bowie senior center set to host classic country n

Showcase event marks first of its kind BY



The Bowie Senior Center will host a classic country music night on June 12 with Baltimore artist Chuck Fisher who will play selections from musicians like Jim Reeves, Eddie Arnold, Ray Price and Bobby Vinton. The event will mark the first country music night at the center, said Laurel Raymond, senior services assistant manager. “We want to encourage peo-

ple to come out in the evenings and do something special at the center,” she said. “I think it’s a nice opportunity to bring your neighbors and friends and show them the senior center. It’s just a nice, easy summertime event.” The program will begin at 6 p.m. and light refreshments will be served. Community members are invited to attend and there will be a registration fee of $5 for residents and $6 for nonresidents, Raymond said. The Bowie Senior Center is located at 14900 Health Center Drive in Bowie.

begun, she said. Rupert McCave, a capital improvement officer with the Prince George’s County public school system said he does not know of a specific cause for the project’s delay. “I don’t have a reason why it’s taken so long,” he said. “We’ve taken on a lot more grant-related projects than we have in the past. We have a lot of projects that are ongoing.” McCave said the project has been assigned a project management team and that his department has been in contact with the school, but he did not have a specific date for the next step in the project. Charlene Barnes of Bowie is the Bowie High mother who notified the school about the Muscle Milk grant opportunity. At the time, Barnes’ daughter was a track athlete at the school, she said. “We looked at [the grant] as a benefit for the school overall,” she said. “Not only for track, but it could also benefit the school in general for the sports program.” While Barnes’ daughter was a senior when the grant was approved, and she did not expect the track renovations to take place in time for her daughter to

Andrulonis said he would like the project to be finished by the end of the summer in time for the start of the track season in the fall. “We’ve been having a hard time. We’ve been contacting just about everybody [to get the process moving],” he said. “We just need to get it expedited so we can get it finished for the track program, for the kids.”

Since when was Bowie afraid to be first with anything if it benefits its residents?” Councilman Henri Gardner (Dist. 3) said the City Council needs to focus on this issue and support the needs of aging residents. “I’m not pleased with the report at all. I’m not pleased with the direction we’re taking here,” Gardner said. “They’re not asking for someone to take care of

them. They are just asking for some assistance to meet their ends.” Councilman Dennis Brady (At-large) asked city staff to learn more about nonprofit organizations and philanthropies that provide income-based assistance to seniors and speak with property owners about their reasons for raising the rent. “I don’t think it should be or can be something only the city does, but I think with some partnerships with the county and state, we can,” Brady said. 1884947

The agreement also requires MGM to give $1 million to community organizations prior to opening, and $400,000 a year once the casino resort opens every year the casino is in operation.

Prospects for education agencies are also an integral aspect of the agreement, said Lorenzo Creighton, president and chief operating officer of MGM National Harbor.

However, the examiner determined the board of directors could not speak on behalf of the GBCC membership and members should vote to approve the GBCC’s position, Muckle said. The earliest opportunity was at the annual meeting, Pierce said. During the discussion before the vote, Bowie councilwoman Diane Polangin (Dist. 2) said there would be less traffic if the area were developed as a mixed-use property, rather than a commercial center. “If a 250,000-square-foot shopping center were built there, imagine the traffic that would be there,” Polangin said, adding that the Amber Ridge rezoning “really is a better use of the property, and it would be

less intrusive.” The GBCC members who were present affirmed their support with a unanimous vote. Pierce said she would resubmit the letter to the zoning hearing examiner to indicate the approval of the membership. The examiner’s decision will be sent to the County Council, which will convene as the District Council to make a final decision on the rezoning request. Also during the meeting, County councilwoman Ingrid M. Turner (D-Dist. 4) of Bowie presented a check for $25,000 to Pierce and Muckle to support the Youth Leadership Bowie program. The program, which started in 1998, is a collaboration between the GBCC and the city to introduce high school students to career opportunities in Bowie businesses and government. “We look forward to putting those funds toward revamping [the program],” Muckle said.

Jamil Smith, 25, of Bowie received a blood pressure screening and got higher results than he had expected. He attributed the high numbers to work stress. Smith said busy work schedules may be to blame for why some county residents don’t take the time to see their doctor and get screenings. “A big place like this can do a lot to help these people who never get around to it,” Smith said. “It’s perfect for

a Saturday. They can slow down and get these screenings done.” Whether it’s during the health expo on Saturday or church on Sunday, Wills said the health ministry is motivated by their faith to educate churchgoers and non-churchgoers alike about health and well-being. “I really feel that we need to get people more proactive instead of reactive,” Wills said. “God has given you only one body and you really need to take care of it. That is something that really drives the health ministry, to really educate not just our church body, but also the community in health and wellness.”

Missed opportunity in Upper Marlboro


A flood of county concerns

There are some areas in Prince George’s County that become flooded so often, residents just know to avoid them whenever it rains. For example, Governor Bridge Road in Bowie becomes impassable after most storms, to the point that it’s common to hear about a daring driver needing to be rescued. Even roads at the county seat, Upper Marlboro, seem to be blocked off frequently because of high water. So on June 10, when flooding caused damage in College LONG-STANDING Park, Riverdale Park and Berwyn — AND SEEMINGLY Heights (where 70 residents had to be evacuated as large amounts of NEW — WATER water gushed down the streets), it PROBLEMS NEED left many wondering: What’s goTO BE ADDRESSED ing on? There are likely several different reasons for the problems. In the Berwyn Heights flood, Mark Brady, a spokesman for the Prince George’s County Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department, said the heavy rainfall was too much for the sewage system to handle. Water runoff from new developments, poorly designed roadways, outdated infrastructure and environmental challenges — such as extreme amounts of rain or snow — have been cited as possible causes for flooding around the county, as well. Last year, a homeless woman was found dead in Anne Arundel County, just outside of Laurel’s city limits, after severe thunderstorms caused the Patuxent River to overflow, causing extensive flooding in the area. The woman’s death, along with ongoing flooding in the city, has inspired Laurel officials to create a program to better monitor river levels and provide more advance notice to residents. City officials should be applauded for their efforts — the new system could come with a $65,000 price tag — but the county should go a step further to look at the bigger picture. Currently, it seems that flooding challenges are being handled piecemeal rather than taking a wholesale approach to addressing flooding by creating a plan that incorporates infrastructure, development and other changes. While an analysis of this scope may be costly, it is nothing compared to the damage to homes and businesses, the loss of life and the potential environmental impact the flooding is causing. Working to plug a hole here and there, while water is gushing across other parts of the county, is an exercise in futility. It’s time for a broader look so residents aren’t left knee-deep in questions.

No excuses for Bowie High track delay Bowie High School wants a better track — the shot put area needs repairs, the discus area could afford some improvements and a long jump runway could be added — and the school won a $17,000 grant in spring 2013 to handle the overhaul. Unfortunately, nothing has changed yet at the school, where administrators are waiting for the Prince George’s County school system to get the project started. “The kids who were here when we got the money have graduated already,” Bowie High athletic director Jessica Brandt said. “It’s just ridiculous they’re keeping $17,000 from the kids.” Rupert McCave, a capital improvement officer with the school system, said he couldn’t pinpoint the cause of the delay. “I don’t have a reason why it’s taken so long,” he told The Gazette. “We’ve taken on a lot more grant-related projects than we have in the past. We have a lot of projects that are ongoing.” In the meantime, Bowie High School is in limbo, with track season set to start in the fall. Hopefully, school officials can get the track project ... back on track — or at least provide answers about what is causing the delay and how soon the challenges will be resolved. The school has done its part in getting the renovations under way, now it’s time for the school system to pick up the baton and run with it.

A story that caught my eye concerned the “improvement plans” of Upper Marlboro. My reaction: What took them so long? There’s enough history in and about this little town that it could easily be called “little Williamsburg!” There are so many historical places in and around Greater Upper Marlboro that this area can maintain its own tour bus service. Because of climate and soil conditions, Prince George’s County became the state’s largest slave holder, and Greater Upper Marlboro contained the largest concentration of slave plantations and plantation mansions in Maryland. Keep in mind that the state of Maryland had the second largest slave population of the 13 original colonies. The public would surely be interested in visiting Lord Baltimore’s 10,000-acre plantations of Goodwood and Riversdale. His parents — Benedict and Elisabeth Calvert — owned Mt. Airy plantation in Rosaryville. Other county plantations were Sarah Hilleary’s Three Sisters in Lanham, Thomas Spriggs Jr. owned Lake Arbor in Largo, and former Governor Oden Bowie owned Fairview in Collington. Acquiring slaves for these plantations was relatively convenient since the slave marketplace was located in Upper Marlboro, which was also in the county. The start of Upper Marlboro’s reconstruction should be as close to its original seaport location as possible. One of Colonial Maryland’s most iconic prints shows slaves loading tobacco on an oceangoing vessel at the seaport, which was located at the end of Water Street on the Western Branch of the Patuxent River in 1751. Among the inhabitants of Colonial Upper Marlboro could be found a wig

There are no clear guidelines about how long you have to stop in a red light before taking right turn, no sign of red light camera in three different entrance roads of Cottage City (40th Place, 40th Avenue and 38th Avenue), and nowhere it is written “no turn on red,” yet people are getting $75 fines without any reason.

I thought those bright yellow cards on some of my neighbors’ lawns were a one-time occurrence. Turns out their pesticide (poison) application is a fairly frequent deal — much to the detriment of the kids, dogs, birds and other beings unable to discern the danger of trodding on or near their grass. What a shame we all have to be exposed to these harmful products for the sake of an artificial-looking, emerald green, chemicalladen lawn — before they end up in the the Chesapeake Bay, that is. Time to ban this stuff and enjoy natural green lawns and a cleaner environment instead.

It is inaccurate to label him as “one who got away.” He never even nibbled at the bait. How does one arrive in adolescence so utterly jaded? How far back into his personal history would we need to travel to find the moment where his flowering curiosity was crushed underfoot? How might we have repaired the tracks rather than watch the train derail? One thing is certain: Our society has failed to internalize the century-and-ahalf-old wisdom of Frederick Douglass who declared, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” Kenneth B.

Nothing fake about UltraFaux Baltimore-based band plays music inspired by gypsy jazz great



The sound of Africa


Not every band less than six months old can release a fulllength album and plan several regional tours. UltraFaux, however, is not like every band — or any band, for that matter. The Baltimore-based gypsy jazz trio formed in January 2014 and didn’t let age get in the way of putting out their selftitled debut on April 1, weeks after laying down the tracks. UltraFaux consists of Michael Joseph Harris and Sami Arefin on guitar and Eddie Hrybyk playing upright bass. The group has played several shows in the area and will bring their unique jazz sound to New Deal Cafe on June 24. Gypsy jazz, or jazz manouche, was made popular through the early 20th century work of guitarist Django Reinhardt, whose use of the Selmer guitar in his swing-meets-Mediterranean created a sound and style brand new while entirely familiar to the listener. “This music allows people to re-experience what swing and jazz are and all the ways these styles work together in this really raw way,” Harris said. Though Arefin and Hrybyk both attended music school, Harris went professional

Though he attended school for philosophy at George Mason University and studied with musician Jack Petersen in Texas, Harris spent most of his time performing at different clubs and bars in the metropolitan area and later Baltimore. It was only a year and a half ago that he got into the gypsy jazz style. Harris filled in for Arefin — who he had not yet met — at a local gig for Brooklyn-based Mary Alouette. Once the Selmer was placed in his hands, he was hooked. He continued practicing, eventually meeting the man he subbed for, his eventual collaborator. “Finally I met Sami and he

schooled me — I finally met someone who knew more than I did, and he was able to educate me in it,” Harris said. “I think he got a lot from my approach to improvisation and confidence and we fed off of each other.” Prior to organizing UltraFaux, the duo performed in a Django tribute band Hot Club of Baltimore, meeting other musicians along the way. In January, Harris got a rush of inspiration and wrote some original pieces. Those songs would become the tracks for their first CD as UltraFaux. The group launched a Kickstarter to drum up support and funds. Although they originally set a $5,000 fundraising target, the group later decreased their goal to $3,000.

seen for several weeks, but that didn’t stop Harris’ plans. “I had already scheduled the studio time at Negative Space Studios,” he admitted. “I gambled, just started the process anyway not knowing if the Kickstarter worked.” As it turned out, the band not only met but surpassed their goal, raising $4,200 for the CD’s, vinyl LPs and digital downloads of the self-titled album, as well as a limited run of T-shirts.

it comes from,” he said. “Young people show up and have no idea what this music is at all, but they like it.” Throughout it all, Harris and his bandmates keep Django’s work in mind as inspiration for performances and future songs. Harris and Arefin will attend Django in June, a festival in Amherst, Mass., which will allow the two to come together with other musicians around the country inspired by the guitarist’s work. Their love for Django, they hope, comes through in their sound and performances. “I hope the audience experiences a little of what Django achieved,” said Harris, “which was miraculous in the sense that he brought together gypsy folk, drawing on a ton of styles like Roma culture and mu-

sette, and all of that Mediterranean influence, with jazz. He noodled around and fused east and west together in this style. He changed guitar and jazz forever.” Potentially, the group can bridge the gap in modern jazz appreciation, in an age where some younger listeners associate jazz with old-fashioned music and can’t connect with the genre, much like Django brought the east to the west. “A lot of jazz has been watered down and made to be a high art, which it is in some ways, but it’s not always meant to be played on a stuffy stage,” he said. “It’s social music, bottom line, and gypsy jazz brings it more into that realm.”

AFI Docs returns to Silver Spring with summer festival Documentaries will be shown in Silver Spring, D.C.




When filmmaker Tyler Measom attended the American Film Institute’s 2011 Silverdocs film festival in Silver Spring, he arrived hoping to garner support for his latest film pitch — and walked away with a new production partner. Measom and Justin Weinstein co-directed “An Honest Liar,” one of dozens of entries in the same local documentary festival this year, now known as AFI Docs, taking place from June 18-22. “Film festivals are wonderful, they’re fantastic,” Measom said. “You run into so many like-minded individuals, people who are in the same boat as you making films. This project, the reason it’s so good is that I met [Weinstein] at this festival.” Connecting with others, whether fellow producers or policymakers, is one of the main goals of the festival, particularly in recent years. The annual event began in 2003 as Silverdocs, and screenings took place in Silver Spring. AFI increased the festival’s scope and added Washington, D.C., venues in 2013, renaming it to reflect the expanded range. Though many of this year’s festival screenings occur at the AFI Silver Theatre in downtown Silver Spring, films will also appear at the National Portrait Gallery, Goethe-Institut, and The Naval Heritage Center Theatre. AFI Docs accepts submissions from across the globe. Volunteer screeners take on the nearly 2,000 submissions and narrow them down for a screening committee that watches the contenders from start to finish. “We are looking for phenomenal films that are

— and I think it’s the same with filmmaking,” said Passafiume. “Audiences are looking to be engrossed in an incredible story — if the storytelling is good, anything can be enthralling.” Through AFI Docs, producers and directors can connect their audiences with global issues while making connections to others who can further their own goal, whether it’s a new project or assistance with a previous film subject. Even if the format of AFI Docs feels different to community members familiar with Silverdocs procedure, the overall mission remains. “It will always be a balanced, eclectic program from all over the world,” said Passafiume, “one where issues get heard and discussed and hopefully generate some meaningful relationships that continue beyond the festival.” “It is unquestionably one of the most important documentary film festivals in the world,” Measom added. “That’s where the engagement happens, that’s where the outreach happens between filmmakers and commissioning editors but also politicians and people who affect change. And that’s ultimately why we make documentaries.”

representative of the world — different issues, different topics, different tones,” said Head Programmer Andrea Passafiume, who has worked with the festival for five years. “Sometimes it’s a slam dunk, you want to call them right away, and other times they generate a bit more controversy and divide people more, which is interesting and we debate about the film.” Because of the festival’s proximity to the nation’s capital, many attendees are involved in politics or policy, and possess the power to work on issues raised by the featured documentaries. However, that

doesn’t mean AFI Docs ignores films such as character pieces or music genre studies. “Bronx Obama,” about a single father who became a professional impersonator of the commander in chief, plays at the same time as “1971,” highlighting a break-in at an FBI field office in Philadelphia. The story of artistic director for Christian Dior Raf Simons preparing for his first haute couture collection in “Dior and I” is followed by “Virunga,” a film about Africa’s oldest national park that has the last natural habitat for mountain gorillas. Where does “An Honest Liar,” a film following illusionist

James “The Amazing” Randi in his attempts to quash the work of con artists using the same tricks, fall along the spectrum? Though the film focuses on Randi and his work, the larger message comes with a potential lesson for audience members. The film’s overall theme of deception and the varying ways human beings deceive others or are tricked comes in part from Measom’s upbringing in the Mormon faith, which he has since left. “I feel there’s a part of me that spent my whole life being deceived, and it pisses me off a little bit,” he said. “I kind of went into this film, about a man who

does everything he can to stop or expose deception, with the hope that people come out and think, ‘Is there a part of my life where I am being lied to,’ or doing the lying.” Films such as “An Honest Liar” highlight people and places that the casual viewer may have never heard of; Measom himself felt lucky that no one else had covered Randi in a film before. Filmmakers strive to bring their subjects to light, no matter their overall significance in the grand scheme of life. “A good teacher can make absolutely any subject interesting, while a bad teacher can make any boring and painful

One final splash Bowie native eager for her last Prince-Mont League season before heading to Harvard BY TED BLACK STAFF WRITER

As hundreds of county swimmers dove into the various pools for the start of the 2014 Prince-Mont Swim League Saturday morning, Belair Swim & Racquet Club standout Geordie Enoch took the first strokes toward her final season in the league. Enoch, a recent McDonogh School graduate that plans to enroll at Harvard University in the fall, has showcased her talents each summer for part of two decades, dating back to her first season of competition in 2003. Along the way, her name has graced the record books at several pools and last summer, before heading to Irvine, Calif., for Junior Nationals, she set nine records at the annual Bowie City Meet. This year’s Bowie City Meet is scheduled for July 8. Saturday morning, following a two-hour early practice with the Eagles Swim Team at McDonogh, Enoch headed to BSR to start her final season with the Barracudas. She missed one of her primary events, the 15-18

girls’ 50-meter breastroke, but won the 50 backstroke (32.84) and the 100 individual medley (1 minutes, 10.84 seconds) and capped the meet by anchoring the 9-18 girls’ freestyle relay. “It’s really something that hasn’t hit me yet,” Enoch said of beginning her final season at BSR. “I can still remember the first time I came here for a meet when I was 6 ... and just being happy to be part of a team. Now I look at a lot of the younger girls on the team and think, ‘Wow, at one time that was me.’ I’m just hoping to have a lot of fun this year and enjoy my last summer of competing for BSR.” Enoch won three events at the annual Prince-Mont All-Star meet last summer at Whitehall Pool & Tennis. BSR is hosting the meet this summer. Among her own teammates, including rising Bowie High School senior Sarah Leinbach, who finished second Saturday in the 100 individual medley (1:26.43), Enoch is a competitive inspiration. Leinbach, who

Defending champion starts over Pumas focus on staying patient while new leaders develop in summer league




For the first time, Henry A. Wise High School’s boys’ basketball team is playing in a summer league as the reigning state champions. That and the fact that the Pumas have eight players returning, expectations are higher. For that reason, coach Rob Garner said he and his staff have to exhibit patience this summer. “We’re going to have to be very patient, and know that we have a total new team coming back,” Garner said following a 28-20 loss to St. Vincent Pallotti in The Rock summer league game on Friday night at High Point. “We got some guys that’s hurt. We got some guys that [are] going into new roles. So, we’re going to have to be patient.” Many of the returning players did not have big roles this past season. Players such as Devin Johnson and Kyle Hill will have to adjust to being leaders for the team while playing more minutes. New leadership amongst the players on the team is combined with an infusion of new talent coming up from the junior varsity ranks. Garner said he wants to see this team come together over the summer. “Our No. 1 goal for the summer is to just build relationships,” Garner said. “See how kids are responding to coaching, and the effort.” One thing the holdover players can bring back with them is a championship pedigree. They were on a team that successfully climbed to the peak of the high school basketball mountain and according to Johnson, they know the hard work and dedication that was required to get there.

McNamara sees signs of turnaround coming n

Girls’ basketball: Mustangs off to perfect start in summer league BY



Bishop McNamara High School’s Moriah Crisp competes against Charles H. Flowers during Monday’s girls basketball game at McNamara.

The Bishop McNamara High School girls’ basketball team wasn’t dominating summer league games like this a year ago. That’s because the Mustangs, coming off a 3-24 season, didn’t even have a summer team. But what a difference a year and a new coach can make. Under second-year coach Frank Oliver, Jr., the Mustangs have come together this offseason, and the extra work is paying off with McNamara off to a 5-0 start in the Bishop McNamara High School Girls Varsity Summer League. “We’re here every single day,” said rising junior Morgan Smith, who scored 10 points in Monday’s 59-11 victory against Charles H. Flowers. “… We get to put on the floor every-

thing we’ve been working on.” The Mustangs went 13-18 overall and 8-11 in the competitive Washington Catholic Athletic Conference in Oliver’s first season — a major step forward for what was once a dominant program. Featuring a balanced offense — its leading scorer, rising senior Myka Johnson-Matthews, averaged only 10.5 points — McNamara defeated some of the area’s best teams, including Walt Whitman, Our Lady of Good Counsel and St. Vincent Pallotti. “Last year was a major learning experience for us,” Oliver said. “I knew that we were young, we didn’t have any seniors. We were basically teaching for this year and getting everything in place for this year and having them go through those bumps and bruises so they’d be prepared for this year right now.” Rising senior Kholby Oliver, who was part of the three-win team two years ago, said that improved team chemistry has led to the oncourt success. “The biggest difference is that we’re gell-

ing together and we know where everybody is on the floor,” said Kholby Oliver, a fourthyear varsity player. “We’re becoming one.” Kholby Oliver averaged 10 points last season and was McNamara’s top 3-point shooter, hitting 58 from beyond the arc. Her basketball IQ and exceptional skill-set is what makes her an effective shooting guard, Frank Oliver said. “I just want her to play at a high pace, a quick pace, so that she can take advantage of her skills,” he said. All of McNamara’s players are expected to return, and with a relatively young squad, there’s still plenty of room for improvement, Frank Oliver said. This summer the Mustangs have played like a team ready to compete with the WCAC’s top teams. “We’re really trying to push forward, and just be successful,” Smith said.

Continued from Page B-1 “People don’t know how much work we put in last year,” said Johnson, the rising senior. “We really earned it. We were in the gym everyday, staying after practice getting shots up. So, it’s a lot of extra hard work that

it takes to get a state championship.” That type of championshipeffort was not apparent on Friday night and so Garner let his players know about his displeasure following the game. “It’s summer league. At the end of the day, you’d like to say we’re not going to focus on wins and losses,” Garner said. “But I

don’t know anybody that’s competitive that wants to lose. You give your best effort to try to win the game. “So, I think right now, if the effort is there, the concentration is there — we’re going to focus on those things.” Hill said that while Garner isn’t afraid to be rough on the team, it’s easier to respond to a coach whose methods have

Continued from Page B-1 admits that part of her motivation at the meets stems from beating her younger sister, Natalie Leinbach, a rising sophomore at Bowie, said that chasing Enoch in any event simply forces her to go faster than she ever has before. “Geordie is really fast,” Sarah Leinbach said. “I know that she’s going to beat me in the 100 IM, but I also know that I have a chance to keep dropping time when I compete against her. My

goal this summer is to go under 1:25 for the 100 IM. Competing against Geordie pushed me to go a personal best. It’s the next best thing to beating my sister.” Last summer, Enoch won all three events at the annual Bowie City Meet and did so in record fashion. Her final times not only established meet, pool and team records, they were all faster than the times the boys’ swimmers posted in each of those events. They would have also established new Prince-Mont records, although the meet, held during the middle of the league schedule, is not considered a

paid off. “Definitely. We got a state championship last year by coach Garner being hard on us everyday in practice,” said Hill who will also be a senior. “And we’re going to have to go even harder this year just to repeat.” Perhaps part of being a good leader is being able to receive criticism and neither Hill

league meet. Whitehall swimmer Annie Hayburn, a rising sophomore at St. Mary’s of Annapolis also looks forward to facing Enoch this summer. “I’ve always looked up to Geordie,” Hayburn said. “She’s such an amazing swimmer and she’s also a great role model for the other girls’ swimmers. When I swim against people like Geordie, who are so good, it can only make me better. I look forward to any opportunity just to be in the same event with her.”

Only time will tell how they respond. “It feels good just to be able to work hard with my fellow teammates and be able to help them out with plays — getting shots up, getting rebounds with them. Just being like a big brother,” Johnson said.

Hill added, “I just got to keep working hard to get better. Step into that new role, because last year I just came off the bench to handle the ball for the team and to pass the ball and get assists. But this year [I’ll] have to score a little bit, and still run the team.”

DeMatha safety commits to Ohio State Stags rising senior earns offer from camp performance n



The statistics don’t jump off the page; after all, but that’s easy to understand since DeMatha Catholic High School rising senior Tyler Green wasn’t even a starter for most of his time last season with the Stags’ football team. But workouts were all that rising senior Tyler Green needed to convince the Ohio State University coaches that he was worthy of a spot on the perennial powerhouse football team. Green, a 6-foot-3 safety,


DeMatha Catholic High School rising senior safety Tyler Green (left) recently gave a verbal commitment to Ohio State University. was invited to a June 8 Ohio State football camp, where he put his athleticism on display and received a scholarship of-

fer that same day. “It’s my dream school. That’s what I was waiting for,” Green said. “... Coach [Urban]

Meyer, you can’t go wrong being coached under him.” Green possesses a rare combination of size and speed; he’s a 185-pound defensive back who ran a 4.41-second 40-yard dash. And, he has a high football IQ, teammate Darryl Turner said. “We’ve been going against each other for a long time,” said Turner, a receiver and defensive back. “... He’s really smart and he can really hit.” Green was a reserve for most of last season, playing on special teams and in the secondary for a Stags squad that won the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title. With 20 Division I recruits, it was tough for Green to crack the lineup, DeMatha coach Elijah Brooks said. But late in the season, against Archbishop

A fresh start for Laurel football program Inexperienced team with new coach tries to rebuild



The loss of more than 17 players to graduation and other reasons should leave the Laurel High School football team with inexperience in all areas of the field this fall. With a new coach — former three-year Largo High coach (2006-08) Delbert Hughes took over on April 16 after two years as an assistant with the program — a clean slate might not be a bad thing. “The seniors we lost were in the program and playing the same style with the same coach for three years,” Hughes said. “I do believe it’s good to start a new system with a new group.” Laurel was forced to back out of its previously scheduled 7-on-7 passing league tournament the

weekend of June 7-8 because too many student-athletes were unavailable, but now that school is officially over — Tuesday was the last day of final exams — Hughes said the team can shift its focus more to preseason training. Under its previous coach, Todd Sommerville, Laurel worked out of a spread offense, but Hughes said he intends to tighten that up and rely a bit more on the running game. He is not, however, pinned to a certain system as he said it’s important to gear the team’s playing style toward the personnel and the preseason will be spent identifying individual’s strengths to highlight. “I think we’re going to be a little more tight end, two running backs type of team,” Hughes said. “We want to improve on our players’ strengths and find what our guys are best at. We just want to put our kids in position to be successful.” The Spartans are coming off

a 2-8 campaign and have only reached three wins in a season twice in the past decade and not since 2009. But having a winning mentality is half the battle and the large group coming up from last year’s junior varsity squad that went 6-4 and is not used to losing the majority of its games, Hughes said. The hope, he added, is to continue building from the ground up — Hughes has already been in touchthisspringwithyouthteams in the area as well as prospective student-athletes at Dwight D. Eisenhower and Martin Luther King, Jr. middle schools. “We want to make sure players who are supposed to come [to Laurel] come in and really build the junior varsity team and build from there,” Hughes said. “We want to keep bringing in good people from the middle schools and hopefully kids who left will want to come back.” Versatile athlete and rising

senior Michael Hubbard (6-foot, 165 pounds) will likely step into the quarterback position, though Hughessaidhecanplayjustabout anywhere on the field if needed and if someone else presents himself as a viable option under center, Hubbard might spend more time at running back. Rising junior Brandon Goodwyn (6-1, 185), who was a top receiver on junior varsity a year ago, will shift to more of a tight end role, Hughes said. Keyon Pannel, Kollie Sherman and Marcus Jackson are all in line to compete for time in the backfield. “Last year we only won two games and I was upset about that,” Hubbard said. “We had a lot of talent but we were just trying to be individuals, we weren’t working together. This year we want to change history, we haven’t had a good winning season in a long time. People here now are dedicated and I think we can make a change for this program.”

Carroll, he started his first game at safety. “He was all over the field,” Brooks said. “... He really showed us the athleticism throughout the season.” Green made an effort to improve on his already impressive athleticism this offseason, Brooks said. A three-star recruit, ranked ninth in Maryland according to, Green received scholarship offers from more than 10 schools, including Maryland and Virginia. “He really committed himself, got faster, got stronger, and really became a big-time prospect,” Brooks said. “... He’s starting to blossom at the right time.” Green is expected to move into the starting lineup as DeMatha goes for its second con-

secutive WCAC championship. He said he is focused on improving his press coverage so he can take advantage of his size and strength. “He’s just scratching the surface of how good he can be,” Brooks said. “We predict him to have a breakout year for us this year. Once he gets to college, the sky is the limit. He controls his journey.” Green will take on an expanded leadership role now that he’s a senior, but that won’t change his on-field approach, he said. “They see me as a leader now with the offer,” he said. “... It doesn’t really change any mindset [from] before. I’ll just keep working at it.”

KEEPING IT BRIEF Bowie soccer coach retires After 25 seasons as the boys’ soccer coach at Bowie High School and a county teacher, RichardKirklandhasretiredfrom both positions. Kirkland, who was 287-9718 during his coaching career, guided the Bulldogs to four Class 4A state titles and 11 4A South Region championships. For the past 39 years, he had also been a teacheratBonMillElementaryin Laurel. “I thought it was time,” Kirkland said. “I had known for a whilethatthiswasgoingtobemy last year teaching ... after a while I figured it was probably best to just retire from both at the same time.” Kirkland will be replaced by Franz Deetjen, an economics teacher at the Bowie who has spent the previous seven seasons as an assistant coach with the Bulldogs. Another longtime assistant, Jim Flynn, is expected to

return for his 13th season as one of Deetjen’s assistants. — TED BLACK

America’s tennis future lives in College Park The world’s No. 8-ranked junior set to compete in Junior Wimbledon




College Park resident Francis Tiafoe practices June 12 at the Tennis Center at College Park.

Moving around the tennis court never seemed so hard for College Park resident Francis Tiafoe as it did on June 3 at Roland Garros. On the other side of the net stood world No. 1 and the eventual 2014 French Open champion Rafael Nadal. An admittedly nervous Tiafoe, 16, said at first he just hoped he would be able to keep the ball in play against one of the game’s heaviest hitters. “That first day my legs couldn’t move, if he hit a ball two steps away from me I was struggling to get there,” said Tiafoe, who practiced with Nadal three times before leaving France. “I was so nervous [at first]. His presence ... his inten-

sity on the court, it’s not normal. He’s so explosive on the court. The ball comes so heavy off his racquet and it’s every time. You’re not going to see that from any other player, even the pros. If I want to get to that level, I have to keep working harder.” Tiafoe is not averse to hard work, either. The son of two immigrants from Sierra Leone, he said watching the effort his parents put into making sure they could support him and his twin brother, Franklin, DeMatha’s No. 1 singles player, set an incredibly high standard for his own work ethic. College Park Junior Tennis Champions Center coach Frank Salazar agreed. Tiafoe was introduced to the sport because of his father’s job. Constant Tiafoe is a maintenance man at the College Park Tennis Center. With a racquet in his hand by age 3, Tiafoe spent his entire childhood around the facility and even slept there on nights when his mother was working double shifts as a

nurse, he said. His experience at his firstever junior French Open earlier this month was invaluable, Tiafoe said. Though he lost in the second round as the top seed it was a huge stepping stone. Tiafoe, who said his game — big serve, big forehand, flat twohanded backhand and overall aggressive baseline game — is modeled after 2009 US Open champion Juan Martín del Potro of Argentina, is already being touted as the next big hope for American men’s tennis. “[When people tell me that] I just say, ‘Thank you, I hope so,’” Tiafoe said. “Nothing is ever for sure. It’s nice for people to say but that is not going to help me be where I want to be.” On Tuesday, hours after winning the Citi Open Wild Card Challenge in College Park to earn a spot in the qualifying draw for the ATP Tour’s Citi Open in Washington, D.C. next month, Tiafoe left for England where he will compete in his

second international grand slam at Junior Wimbledon. Lessons learned at the French Open, like how to deal with the pressure of being a favorite to win, and feeling more comfortable in an environment where he might walk past defending Wimbledon champion Andy Murray in the locker room or eat lunch at a table next to Roger Federer, should help him make a deeper run on the grass, he said. “I think he took a couple things away [from his first grand slam outside the country],” said Salazar, who coaches Tiafoe alongside Misha Kouznetsov. “Knowing what it feels like to be a No. 1 seed, which he could be in that situation again. The other thing is he really got to see an idea of how professional the pros are, like before they play their match and after they play their match. The opportunity to practice with Nadal and seeing his intensity, to see how professional he is when he

takes the court and being able to see what kind of tennis ball is coming at you from a ninetime French Open champion, all those things are valuable and really beneficial to his growth.” In the past five months, Salazar said, the effects of a more rigorous fitness regimen coupled by a growth spurt — Tiafoe is on the cusp of 6-foot-2 — have begun to surface. Tiafoe reached a career-high No. 2 in the International Tennis Federation rankings in April and is 12-2 in ITF matches in 2014. Salazar said Tiafoe has the tangibles to make the jump to professional tennis — the size, the strokes, the knowledge and passion — but potential is also just that until it is realized. “At the end of the day it’s just how badly you want it,” Tiafoe said. “I’ve been around tennis all my life, there’s nothing I’ve wanted to do more.”

Prince-Mont League dives in for new season Top swimmers stay in shape, hope to swim in allstar meet in July n


Swimmers from across the county dove into their respective pools on Saturday morning as the Prince-Mont Swim League’s season began. Most of the swimmers will likely be content to improve their times throughout the summer, but for the league’s elite, the ultimate goal is to swim in the scheduled July 26 all-star meet at Belair Swim & Racquet. Perhaps it seems fitting that one of the league’s best swimmers, BSR product Geordie


Whitehall Pool and Tennis Club member Annie Hayburn is expected to be one of the top Prince-Mont League swimmers this summer. Enoch, is in the final year of league competition and her pool is hosting the season finale. Enoch, a recent McDonogh School graduate and rising freshman and Harvard University, opened the season by winning two events on Saturday morning. BSR, however, lost to

visiting Cheverly Swim & Racquet, 306-261. Enoch is the defending champion in three events: the 15-18 girls’ 50-meter breaststroke, 50 back and 100 individual medley. Annie Hayburn, a rising junior at St. Mary’s of Annapolis, competes

for Whitehall Pool & Tennis is one of Enoch’s top competitors. Hayburn won three events Saturday and established a new league record in the 15-18 girls’ 50 butterfly (26.44). “It was exciting,” Hayburn said of her latest league record. “I always focus on dropping time and taking best times in different events. I really feel blessed to be part of such a good team at Whitehall. My main goal this summer is just to have fun and enjoy being around my teammates. I always look forward to a chance to compete against Geordie. She’s an amazing swimmer and it’s an honorformejusttobeinthesame event with her.” Like Enoch, several other longtime Bowie residents will be looking to put the finishing

touches on their Prince-Mont tenures. Belair Bath & Tennis swimmers Dennis Witol, an Eleanor Roosevelt graduate and Steven Rigby, a Bowie High grad, are two such swimmers. “We were never really rivals,” Rigby. “It was always fun swimming against Roosevelt with Dennis over there. But I would rather have him on my team than swim against him. The summer season is a lot of fun. It’s not about competing, really, but hanging out and having fun with your friends.” Bowie swimmers have numerous pools. In addition to Whitehall and Belair Bath & Tennis, both of which are in Division A, and BSR (D), other city pools include Pointer Ridge (E), Northridge (D) and Severn Crossing (E). Laurel also has several pools

and numerous talented swimmers. Montpelier, West Laurel and West Arundel all compete in Division C. Russett competes in Division B. Montpelier is scheduled to host the Division C championships on July 19. Saturday’s scheduled intracity meet between West Laurel and West Arundel should feature siblings Nick Mills, Rocco Mills and Suzannah Mills (West Laurel) and Kellianne Venit, Jay Venit and Michael Venit (West Arundel). Gabrielle Standfield (Theresa Banks) is among the league’s rising stars. Last summer, Standfield won three 11-12 girls’ events at allstars and established league records in two of them. She remains in the 11-12 bracket this summer.
