Aiming for shorter bus routes

Key donations

Bowie nonprofit gives gift of music




Largo High School senior Caleb Mackey’s teachers said they can’t keep the 18-year-old out of the music room, where he plays the piano daily when he’s not playing at home. Now the Largo teen will have more of a chance to play, thanks to a local nonprofit group that recently donated four pianos to the school. “Music class is the only class I really like,” said Mackey, who will attend college in Texas next fall. He will study music in hopes of becoming a record producer and movie score writer. “Everyone can experience and play [the pianos], so I’m really grateful.” On Aug. 27, members of the Foundation for the Advancement of Music and Education, Inc., a Bowie-based nonprofit devoted to giving all children access to music education, delivered seven pianos — three acoustic pianos and four electric keyboards — to three Prince George’s County public schools. The seven pianos were divided between Oxon Hill High School, Forestville Military Academy and Largo High, said A. Toni Lewis, who founded the nonprofit in 2004. When Lewis heard that Bowie State University moved into a new performing arts center with all new instruments, she said, she knew the university’s old pianos had to go to Prince George’s public schools and requested they be donated to F.A.M.E. “I go out to schools, do surveys and talk to the children, who will say, ‘I wish we had a piano in our class or I wish each one of us could have access to one,’” Lewis said. “There’s a lack and we need to all come together.” Lewis delivered the pianos to schools that either requested them or she knew had a need, she said. Last year, the nonprofit gave five donated pianos to Central High and Walker

Proposal would cut Bowie wait times in half

Bowie residents used to wait up to 40 minutes to catch a bus to the New Carrollton Metro Station, but they won’t wait more than 15 minutes if a recommended express line is approved, according to Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority officials. The recommendation would transform the Bowie Park and Ride into a “bus hub” — a meeting point for Bowie bus lines as well as the sole entry point from Bowie to New Carrollton. Currently, buses from Bowie State University and the Crofton Park and Ride end at the New Carrollton Metro Station. “Instead of having each individual route go to New Carrollton on its own, we will have one of our existing buses on a new route,” said James Hamre, director of planning and scheduling at WMATA. The new direct express line to New Carrollton Metro Station would run every 10 to 15 minutes on weekdays, which would break up all the current long bus routes into shorter, more direct lines that would

Parents make push for county Spanish immersion instruction n

Supporters say there’s interest, need for school program BY JAMIE


A new parents group is hoping Prince George’s County Public Schools will say “si” to creating a Spanish immersion program. Gina Bowler of Upper Marlboro and Delores Millhouse of Bowie met while taking a weekend Spanish class for preschoolers and parents offered by a private company in Prince George’s County. The two decided to advocate for more Spanish-speaking options in the school system.

“We discovered we had a very common interest in having our children learn Spanish as a second language, and we were hungry for resources to help us accomplish that,” Bowler said. Language immersion is a style of education in which students, beginning in kindergarten, are taught their core subjects by teachers speaking a foreign language. Millhouse and Bowler have created a website, www.mybilingualchild.weebly. com, along with a Twitter account and a Facebook page, for parents to learn more about Spanish immersion and language options in the area. They also have begun a survey on their

Dennis Smith walked into his office on his second day as Glenarden mayor and found a voicemail waiting for him. It was a message from the Internal Revenue Service, calling to inform the city it owed about $150,000 in fines, Smith said. It turned out, Smith said, the previous administration hadn’t submitted 1099s — an IRS form used to track money between small companies and individuals under contract — to non-city employees that performed services in excess of $600. None of the vendors received their paperwork, amounting to about 40 or so groups in fiscal 2011 and fiscal 2012, said Smith, who was sworn in July 1. “We are working diligently to resolve this issue,” Smith said. Municipalities not filing return information, such as 1099s, is one of the most common problems the IRS encounters, according to the IRS’s website. If municipalities or businesses don’t submit 1099s for their contracted services,

Watch, touch and brush animals at Bowie petting zoo Experience a little of what

Bowie used to be like when

most of the area was farmland at Bowie’s Fifth Annual Farm Day petting zoo from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Sunday at the Bowie Farmers Market at 15200 Annapolis Road. The free event is part of the city’s recognition of September as agricultural month in Maryland, said Matt Corley, the city’s special events coordinator. “[The event] is to remember Bowie as what it used to be, a farming community many years ago,” Corley said. “A lot of kids don’t remember farm animals so we bring some out for them to see.” Parents and children can watch, touch and even brush various farm animals, including a miniature horse, sheep, goats, rabbits and ducks, Corley said. Animal handlers bring the animals from a farm in Virginia and accompany families inside the petting zoo, Corley said. “Normally I have a line from the time I open to the time I close,” Corley said of the event.

Griffin spoke to the students about the importance of academics and told the students how his son would put just as much work into the classroom as he would on the field. Having someone like Griffin spend time with students and tell them the importance of education is another way to reinforce the value of academics as they’re not just hearing it from teachers and parents, Principal Raynah Adams said. “I think you try to reach as many avenues as possible,” Adams said. “It’s another way of confirming what is important.”

New outlet mall Stair climb honors fallen firefighters hosts job fair as opening nears Some wear full gear during event held to honor Sept. 11 victims n


900 positions will be filled at National Harbor n


Prince George’s County jobseekers will have an opportunity to vie for about 900 full-time and part-time positions at National Harbor’s upcoming Tanger Outlets starting with a Sept. 17 job fair. The mall will have more than 85 brand name and designer stores when it opens in November, said Quentin Pell, Tanger Outlets spokesman. The fair will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sept. 17 and 4 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 18 at the Southern Regional Technology and Recreation Complex, 7007 Bock Road in Fort Washington. Shuttles will be available from the Rosecroft Raceway to help with parking, said Queen Moore, Tanger Outlets office administrator. “It will be a very powerful shot in the arm for us in the creation of new jobs,” said David Iannucci, assistant deputy chief administrative officer for economic development and public infrastructure. Iannucci said the mall will bring in shoppers from around the area and also satisfy the needs of county residents who have been calling for high-quality stores for some time. Rick Tyler of Temple Hills

said he planned on helping residents in and around Temple Hills by distributing job fair information, but decided not to after seeing a job fair flier didn’t have specific job information. “When they advertised the job fair they didn’t say what stores would be there,” Tyler said. “People won’t know whether they want to apply for a job or not.” Specific details on the stores and specific types of jobs will not be available until about a day before the job fair, said Moore, adding that information on specific stores would not be released because not every store is finalized yet. Some of the announced stores that will be calling the National Harbor site home include Michael Kors, a Coach Factory and Calvin Klein, according to the outlet mall’s online directory. The mall’s Facebook page has announced a new store each week since June 12. “I’m impressed,” Iannucci said. “There will probably be more than two dozen stores this county has sought for a while.” Kettering resident Arthur Turner said he was pleased by the stores announced so far, but he wished a list would be released to the public because it was hard keeping up with the Facebook posts. “It’s important to know who has been inked,” Turner said.

Kenilworth takes lessons to the great outdoors

Jonathan Diiorio was in New Jersey training as an emergency medical technician on Sept. 11, 2001. “I knew immediately when the first tower went down,” Prince George’s County firefighter Diiorio of Chesapeake Beach said of the terrorist attacks that day. “I knew a lot of firefighters just died.” Diiorio recited the Pledge of Allegiance at the third annual 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb held by the Prince George’s County Fire Department. The stair climb is an event where participants pay homage to the 343 firefighters that died by walking up flights of stairs and ringing a bell in their honor. This year’s event was the biggest so far, with more than 400 people registering, and most of the proceeds go to the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation, said Mark Brady, spokesman for the county fire/ EMS department. Officials were unsure at press time how much money was raised. The event was held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center at National Harbor, and a side stairwell of the resort was used by participants when climbing stairs. “I think these events are important not only for firefighters but the country in general,” Diiorio said. “I was honored to represent firefighters who have served.” The first 343 registered re-

Participants paid $25 for registration. A majority of that money is used to assist families of fallen firefighters, Brady said. Throughout the morning, while people were climbing the stairs or walking a 3K, a 1.86-mile walk, set up for those who didn’t want to or couldn’t climb, announcements were made and a moment of silence was held during key times of the Sept. 11 attack.

Bowie resident Morse Hall, 41, who has a daughter in second grade at Kenilworth Elementary, said his family recycles and plants native species, and he is glad his daughter can now do the same at school. The classroom cost $6,200 to build and was fully funded by the school’s parentteacher association, said PTA Vice President Christina Bayes, who came up with the idea a year ago. The PTA combined money raised through fundraisers last school year, like November’s plant sale, with the money in its savings account to pay for landscape designers to build the classroom, Bayes said. Focus now turns to maintaining the outdoor classroom by securing equipment

Stefan Anderson, a firefighter for Laurel Volunteer Rescue Squad 49, wore his gear and climbed all 110 stories. “We want to experience what they experienced,” he said. “It’s for remembrance and tribute to the fallen.”

Yorktown to gain a new path to school

Classrooms with a view

Kenilworth Elementary School students won’t have to gaze outside during class as much since for a portion of their day they’ll be taking the classroom outdoors in a first of its kind program in Prince George’s County. The outdoor classroom features a garden-like area, with no walls or roof or chairs, has a rain barrel, native plants sprouting from colorful pots and mulch spread over the ground where students can sit. The Bowie school’s 332 students will all be coming to the classroom to learn every subject from music to math, said Kenilworth Elementary’s principal Rodney Henderson. “It allows students to take what they learn conceptually in the classroom and bring it outside and see it,” Henderson said. For example, when students learn about butterfly life cycles in science class, they will now have a better opportunity to see actual butterflies in the outdoor classroom. “I like it. I like butterflies,” said firstgrader Makenzie Gilliard, 6, of Bowie, one of several students who wore sparkly butterfly wings to the Friday ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by school staff, community and county leaders, including school CEO Kevin Maxwell and Bowie Mayor G. Frederick Robinson. Maxwell said the new classroom is a per-

Last year, Bashoor said he climbed 140 flights of stairs and planned on doing at least 110 this year, as well. “For me, it’s pretty emotional,” he said. “These guys got

including gardening tools, butterfly houses and seed, said PTA President Tara Adams. To offset costs, the PTA has submitted an application for a grant through the Chesapeake Bay Trust, an Annapolis nonprofit grant-making organization, Adams said. Kristin Foringer, a representative from the Chesapeake Bay Trust, said projects like this are what the organization strives to help. “We want to see kids outside,” Foringer said. Besides money, the classroom also needs manpower. Adams said she lives near the school and her husband regularly cuts the grass around the outdoor classroom and pulls weeds. “There’s definitely a community involvement,” Adams said, “I just can’t wait to see where it’s going to go.”

More of the Yorktown Elementary School community might start walking to school and nearby shops since Bowie can now afford to replace a deteriorating walkway, city officials said. The more than 40 years old, about two feet wide, worn and crumbling asphalt walkway runs for half a mile along the east side of Race Track Road, between Idlewild and Yorktown drives, and is owned and maintained by Prince George’s County, said Joe Meinert, director of the Bowie’s planning department. The $143,000 federally funded Safe Routes to School grant will allow Bowie to upgrade the deteriorating pathway to include accessibility standards under the Americans with Disabilities Act, such as wheelchair ramps, as well as two crosswalks. Additionally, the money will pay for two bike racks on the school’s property, according to city documents. “Back then, everyone would walk to school,” Meinert said. “More would do it if they had a safe way of getting there.”

Of Yorktown Elementary’s 315 students, 265 ride the bus, and the rest either walk or are driven to school by their parents, said Principal Taryn Savoy. Ashley Ells, 29, lives on Yorktown Drive and picks her kindergartner up from Yorktown Elementary every day. She said she doesn’t have to use the walkway to get back and forth from school, but she does use it to get to work at the Hilltop Plaza, about half a mile from the school, and would never take her son on that walk because his stroller would barely fit on the overgrown walkway, she said. “[The walkway] is hard to get through. It’s very crowded and nasty and kind of scary,” Ells said, adding that other mothers at the school share her concerns. Ells said if the walkway was improved, she would take her son on walks around the area. “The Safe Routes to School grant will help ensure that our students are able to travel to and from Yorktown Elementary safely along Race Track Road,” Savoy said. “Our school community is grateful for the city’s support.” The city is in talks with county officials to decide a project time line, officials said.

Ethics chief hire helps get new agency underway

Fun and games

Former lawyer says employee education is essential



Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) announced his choice Tuesday for the head of a newly formed accountability office that will investigate ethics complaints against county officials and employees. Robin Barnes-Shell, a former lawyer within the Prince George’s County Public Schools system, will serve as acting executive director of the county’s Office of Ethics and Accountability, an independent agency that will investigate accusations of unethical conduct and refer cases to the county Office of the State’s Attorney as needed. Barnes-Shell, 51, of Glenn Dale now awaits confirmation of her selection by the County Council, said Baker spokesman Scott Peterson. Barnes-Shell will essentially be laying the foundation for the office, which Baker established in 2012 to fulfill his initial campaign pledge to make government more transparent, Peterson said. A corruption probe found that Baker’s predecessor, Jack B. Johnson (D), took more than $400,000 in bribes in exchange for favors with developers and he was sentenced in 2011 to more than seven years in prison. Johnson’s wife, Leslie Johnson, a former county councilwoman, was sentenced to more than a year in prison for her role in the pay-to-play scheme. Among Barnes-Shell’s immediate priorities is hiring three staff members, and beginning training and educating county government employees so they know the

Below, spectators take in the pig races at the fair.

Nice weather gives county fair attendance a needed lift After four years of canceled or shortened days due to inclement weather, this year’s Prince George’s County Fair went off without a hitch or the need for an umbrella. “The only thing we can’t plan is the weather,” said Doris Case, county fair association vice president. The fair has had issues with weather the last four years, with heavy rains and even floods forcing organizers to shut down the four-day event for a few days, making it more difficult for attendees to make it to the fairgrounds at The Show Place Arena and Prince George’s Equestrian Center, Case said. Crystal Hall of Temple Hills said the weather was perfect to spend Saturday enjoying the fair grounds. Hall was at the fair with her fiance, Donnell Wainwright of Washington, D.C., and her daughter, Zhara Hall, 5, who was looking forward to the pony rides. “It’s not too hot,” Hall said. “Not scorching, just perfect.” This year’s attendance was up to about 9,540 paid admission and a total of 11,000 after sponsors and volunteers, said Joe Jones, county fair association president. The lack of rain helped and attendance numbers were as high as they have been in the last six or seven years, Jones said.

Jones did not have specific numbers for previous fairs at press time. “I think [attendance] is fantastic considering we had four good days,” Jones said. Some of the highlights of this year’s fair, held from Sept. 5 to Sunday, included livestock shows, produce shows, pony rides and the traditional carnival rides, Case said. There also were informational trucks and booths that taught fair attendees about nutrition, health screenings and the dangers of drunken driving. The newest additions to the fair were Black Jack, a giant steer, and Hercules, a giant horse. The horse weighed about 2,800 pounds, and the steer pushed more than 3,000 pounds, according to fact sheets on display. The Prince George’s County Fair is one of the oldest fairs in the state, starting in 1842, Case said, but some county residents had never been to the fair and were taking it in for the first

time. India Sweetney of Fort Washington was at the fair Saturday with her husband, Mike Sweetney, and their children, Ayden, 2, and Grayson, 8 months. India Sweetney said they were enjoying the fair and had never heard about it until this

year. Ayden liked the spinning centipede ride so much that he rode it twice, India Sweetney said. “It was the perfect place to bring [Ayden] on a Saturday,” India said.

policies they are expected to follow, Barnes-Shell said. “I accepted the opportunity of starting up the office because I have a strong background of starting up offices and putting in place processes and procedures,” she said. “[County residents] can expect we will get the office up and running, and roll out the education and training phase.” From 2008 to 2012, BarnesShell oversaw Prince George’s County Public Schools staff complaints and student discipline, an experience she said will help her in her new position. The office will also provide whistleblower protection, meaning people will be able to call in anonymously and report abuse without fear of retaliation, Peterson said. “It’s not just about finding corruption, it’s about education so that all [county] employees understand all the rules and training,” Peterson said. “It’s not just a reactive office, it’s a very proactive office.” Peterson said an announcement would be made when the whistleblower hotline would be live. Phil Joyce, a professor of public policy and government accountability at the University of Maryland, College Park, said the office represents Baker’s continued effort to increase government transparency, although he cautioned against expecting immediate results as that has not always been the county’s culture. “From everything that I have seen, County Executive Baker actually does care about government accountability and performance, but it’s a difficult thing to pull off,” Joyce said.

Arrest made in delegate robbery Lawmaker attacked after giving two men ride to Largo apartment n


Prince George’s County police said they have made an arrest in connection with the robbery and assault of Del. Darren Swain (D-Dist. 24) of Bowie and continuing investigations to identify two other suspects. Keion Naylor, 19, of Upper Marlboro was arrested on Sept. 2 and charged with robbery, assault and theft, according to Prince George’s County court online records. County police spokesman Lt. William Alexander confirmed that the victim picked up two men from an Upper Marlboro gas station on Sept. 1 and drove them home to a nearby apartment in the 10100 block of Prince Place in Largo. Swain confirmed the Sept. 1 attack, but would not comment on what happened and whether he knew the people involved. “I’m doing great,” Swain said. “The investigation is taking place with the police.” Alexander said the victim asked to use their bathroom and as he exited the bathroom, a third man joined Naylor and another suspect in allegedly attacking and robbing the victim. The group stole Swain’s cell phones and his 2007 Nissan Maxima, according to police. Police are seeking help from the public to locate the other two suspects, Alexander said. At this time, police have no other information on the suspects, Alexander said. A phone number for Naylor was not listed and as of Tuesday, he did not have a lawyer, according to court records. There is a cash reward being offered in connection to the case and residents with information should call the Central Regional Investigation Division at 301-390-2160 or call the Crime Solvers line at 866-411-8477 to remain anonymous, Alexander said.

Continued from Page A-1 allow buses to run on more individualized schedules based on an area’s need, Hamre said. Bowie city officials said they support WMATA’s recommendation, which would cost an initial sum of $1.2 million and then $117,000 in additional annual operating costs, according to the Metrobus Service Evaluation Study WMATA conducted on Bowie’s bus lines this summer. “Buses don’t run on time ... because they get stuck in traffic on these long routes,” said Joe Meinert, director of Bowie’s planning department. “By having the express service to New Carrollton and then the local service here, it will avoid delays and improve frequency.” City officials have recommended route restructuring since 2006, Meinert said. The creation of the bus hub in Bowie is the city’s highest transit priority, officials said. Ridership has been historically low in Bowie, with just 10 percent of city residents taking buses to work, Meinert said. “If we provide it, people will use it,” said Bowie Councilman Todd Turner (Dist. 3) during a Sept. 3 City Council meeting.


Continued from Page A-1 the government could lose out on revenue it needs to collect, which is why it levies fines and penalties when that paperwork isn’t submitted, Glenarden City Treasurer Chris Wood said. Wood was appointed by Smith on July 22 and said he has been working closely with the mayor to ensure this doesn’t happen again. Gail Parker Carter, mayor of Glenarden from 2007 to 2013 and in power when the 1099s weren’t submitted, said turnover in the city treasurer’s office put the town in the position that it is in now. There were seven total treasurers during Carter’s sixyear stint in office, she said. It was difficult to get a competent department head approved, and

Ken Austin, 64, of Bowie works in Washington, D.C., and said he takes the bus to the Metro station at New Carrollton from the Bowie Park and Ride every morning, waiting about 20 minutes in between buses. Despite this, Austin said he doesn’t think WMATA is making the right decisions. “They could [change] the schedules and make them go every 10 minutes at no additional costs,” Austin said. WMATA has scheduled four public hearings this month to discuss the roughly 60 public transit items up for potential changes in Prince George’s County, Hamre said. The first will be held 6 p.m. Monday at Oxon Hill Library, 6200 Oxon Hill Road. The entire restructuring will likely be implemented in phases over multiple budgets starting with the actual rerouting of buses then focusing on adding facilities, he said. “The state has not written me a blank check. Once we have a specific proposal, we can go to the [Maryland] Department of Transportation and say, ‘Here’s what the community said and the county said,’ and begin to work on funding,” Hamre said. once one was approved in 2011, they had to resign in 2012 for health reasons, she said. “The problem the city is seeing today is a direct result of high turnover of staff,” Carter said. “That kind of management in the city leads to complications in the administration.” Smith, Wood and City Manager William Reaves have been working to reduce the money owed to the IRS by collecting the missing information for the IRS. The fines have been reduced to about $95,000 for two years of missed 1099s, in fiscal 2011 and fiscal 2012, according to Reaves’ September city report. Smith said he is confident they can get the fines reduced further to about $15,000 or $20,000 based on his experiences working with the IRS so far. At that point, the city would have to use tax dollars to pay the fines.


Continued from Page A-1 Mill Middle schools in Capitol Heights, as well as Largo High. F.A.M.E. is now looking for funding, so it can continuously tune and repair the donated instruments, which will cost $10,000 a year for all of the schools combined, Lewis said. Largo High now has 15 pianos and three electric key-


Continued from Page A-1 website to gauge interest in Spanish immersion. So far, 70 surveys have been completed, and more than 95 percent of the respondents have been in favor of Spanish immersion, Bowler said. Currently, the group consists of just Bowler and Millhouse, but they hope the My Bilingual Child website will help inform and recruit other parents who have an interest in bilingual education. Students who begin to learn a new language between birth and pre-adolescence are more likely to develop native-like pronunciation and more likely to be fluent in the language if they continue their studies through high school or beyond, according to the Washington, D.C., nonprofit Center for The money to pay these fines won’t impact the services that Glenarden residents currently receive, said Smith, adding that revenue from the growing Woodmore Town Centre should bring in enough money to offset the cost. Council Vice President Elaine Carter said the council would likely approve the payment of the fines although she hopes the city won’t have to pay anything. “They are just tentative numbers; they are working and trying to get [the fines] reduced,” Carter said. “I hope it will be zero.” While Smith and his team are working to fix the problem, Smith said he is putting a system in place to prevent this problem from happening again. The accounting system will notate who should get a 1099, and con-

boards, said Brandon Felder, the school’s piano and choir director, who teaches piano classes every other day with about 30 students per class. Pianos are the most expensive instruments to buy, costing anywhere from $2,000 to $200,000, said Melvin Miles Sr., a former piano salesman and director of music at Forestville Military Academy. F.A.M.E. donated one acoustic piano and one key-

board to Forestville Academy, which until then had no pianos. Melvin said students were using his personal piano, which he took to the school from home. Felder’s five-year plan is to update all of the school’s musical equipment, he said. “[The donation] is the very first step to renovate what we have here,” he said. Felder said he also hopes to replace many of the school’s

old acoustic pianos with electric keyboards, so students can wear headphones while practicing. Electric keyboards cost $800 to $1,500, Felder said. “I strategically placed the donated keyboards on the back wall, so when [students] walk into the classroom, that’s the first thing they see, so there’s something new,” he said. “Even to have that kind of energy walking into the room is important.”

Applied Linguistics. Montgomery County and Washington, D.C., public schools both offer Spanish immersion programs; French immersion is the only language immersion specialty program offered in Prince George’s. Robert Goddard French Immersion in Seabrook and John Hanson French Immersion in Temple Hills currently offer programs for kindergarten through eighth grade. More than 500 students applied to fill the 75 kindergarten seats at the two schools this year, according to school system officials. Bowler and Millhouse said they would like to see Spanish immersion added to Prince George’s families’ options. Cesar Chavez Elementary School in Hyattsville offers par-

tial Spanish immersion, meaning subjects are taught in both English and Spanish. But, as a neighborhood school, only students who live within the school boundaries are eligible. “We want options for our children,” Millhouse said. “I don’t want to move out of the county and put money into another county. I like Prince George’s County.” County school board chairman Segun Eubanks said the

school system is committed to creating a Spanish immersion program and expanding French immersion, but additional work is needed for funding, placement and teacher recruitment. “If at all possible, we’d like to begin planning in the 2014-15 school year,” Eubanks said. “It’s too early to put an exact time frame down, but we’re not talking about five years down the line. We’re trying to get something operational as soon as possible.”

tracted services will not receive a purchase order from the city until they fill out the tax form marking services as requiring 1099s, he said. Smith also said he will budget for a transition so that new mayors will have the training they need to prevent future mishaps. Glenarden resident John Anderson, former mayor from 2005 to 2007, said he believes Smith and his team will handle the issue, but he lamented the city was put in this position. “If you love this city and you are the mayor of this city, you should try and do things to make sure things are in place,” Anderson said. “These things should have been taken care of.”

Glenarden’s honest approach Glenarden owes the Internal Revenue Service $100,000 because officials failed to file correct paperwork regarding city contractors for two years. Of course, it’s not something the city is proud of, but officials — present and past — are being open and honest about the problem, which says a lot. Too often, government leaders discover a mistake and hope the error goes unnoticed by the public, stonewalling the media on any potentially negative topic. Glenarden officials did the opposite. The mayor and council discussed in a public meeting the fact that for fiscal 2011 and 2012, high turnover among city staff caused OFFICIALS significant administrative TURNED IRS problems and many contracPENALTY INTO tors were never given 1099s OPPORTUNITY — a federal form used to track money given to contractors. TO IMPROVE As a result, the city incurred CITY SYSTEM about $150,000 in fines. Even the mayor who was in charge during the oversight, Gail Parker Carter, was open to discussing with The Gazette the turnover problems that led to the penalties under her watch. Officials are now trying to get the correct paperwork filed, which has lessened the penalty amount to $95,000 so far, and they hope to knock the total down to about $15,000, if not less. Granted, having a city with an annual budget of about $3 million incur a six-figure penalty due to poor oversight is never acceptable. Even with the amount reduced, any taxpayer money wasted on administrative errors is unacceptable. Mayor Dennis Smith, City Treasurer Chris Wood and City Manager William Reaves are working to reduce the penalty and create a system that will prevent the problem from occurring in the future. They must also remember to look at why so much turnover occurred in hopes of better retaining city employees going forward. Smith, who was elected mayor in July, could have easily blamed the former mayor and simply forked over taxpayers’ money. Instead, he’s trying to save the money and fix the problem. Their efforts are commendable, as is their openness about the challenge the city is facing.

The price of transit

One step forward, one step back. First, the step forward: Gov. Martin O’Malley announced last month that $400 million of state money, funded through the controversial fuel-tax increase, would go toward the Purple Line. The funding shows the state is serious about the $2.2 billion rail link, important not only to Prince George’s County but to the region. Jobs in Bethesda will be connected to apartments in New Carrollton. Neighborhood businesses along the line will have new customers. A long-desired direct transit link to Silver Spring and Connecticut Avenue will be a reality. Construction could begin in 2015, and the first trains could run by 2020. Rural Marylanders have raised objections that millions collected statewide through the fuel tax is heading toward transit. The state needs miles and miles of highways so its residents can move efficiently. The Maryland Department of Transportation says that when all is said and done, the gas tax revenue will be split about evenly between transit and road projects. The critics will say that less than 10 percent of Marylanders use any of the transit systems across the state. It’s a disconnect, and one that lands in the lap of elected and appointed leaders to defend. Funding for the Purple Line is definitely a step forward for Prince George’s County. Now the step backward: Water is seeping into Metrorail’s Red Line. As first reported by WRC NBC4, repairs could mean a section of the subway will be closed. Metro’s engineers say it could be months, or years, before they develop a repair plan for the seepage. A section of the line could be shut down for months. Such repairs are going to be a fact of life for the Metro, which is showing its age. In three years, the system will mark the 40th anniversary of opening its first Red Line stations. And though other cities have older subway systems that seem to run better, few have the issues Metro faces. The system serves a world capital, two states, and a half-dozen other jurisdictions, not to mention a fickle federal government. It has no secure funding source (fares cover about 55 percent of the day-to-day expenses). None of that constitutes an excuse, but it certainly adds complexity to the problems of providing reliable transportation for as many as 800,000 people per day. The news of the seepage — a step back — comes just as the region is embracing the notion of the long-sought Purple Line could be a reality — a step forward. Reliable funding sources that can expand transit and maintain it are crucial for the entire region.

A tale of two school systems Are you at peace with the idea that students should need to bundle up in winter or carry an umbrella when it rains, simply to visit the restroom? You may stop reading now. Are you not annoyed that the terrain previously utilized by children during recess has evolved into a trailer park sometimes surrounded by 8-foot-high chain-link fence? This op-ed is not for you. You will sometimes hear them referred to as “modular classrooms.” Euphemistically, educators call them “temporaries” or “temps.” This, however, is a misnomer. Seldom are they “temporary.”

They have, instead, become semipermanent monuments to our societal indifference to the educational environment endured by children. We must forget, for a moment, that the climate in our permanent structures is sometimes so unbearable — leaking ceilings, mildew, sweltering in the summer, frigid in the winter — that, occasionally, teachers come to prefer life in the trailer park hidden behind the schoolhouse. That will be another story. More than a decade has passed since The Bridge to Excellence Act, inspired by the recommendations of the Thornton Commission, adopted the precepts of “adequacy and equity” for Maryland’s

Maryland’s miniature primary When House Speaker Tip O’Neill famously observed that “All politics is local,” he meant that voters’ moods are shaped by what’s happening in their neighborhoods and daily lives, not Senate floor speeches or foreign policy debates. It’s the status of their household incomes, kids’ test scores, home values, IRAs and local crime rates that make them either content or contentious. Even in supposedly cosmopolitan Montgomery County, voters rank traffic congestion, not war and peace, as their chief concern. But voters’ quality of life, and corresponding moods, are directly impacted by national and global events that can become election game MY MARYLAND changers. For inBLAIR LEE stance, the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorism attacks largely shaped the 2002 and 2004 national elections just as the 2007 economic collapse helped elect Barack Obama. A host of such game changers may directly affect Maryland’s 2014 statewide elections. They include: Syria (will Obama alienate his liberal base?), the ObamaCare rollout (chaos or calm?), the economy (recovery or stagflation?), the debt ceiling showdown (can Obama and Congress look any worse?), and surprise disasters both natural and manmade. These election-year game changers will either occur, or not, and how the players respond will determine their political fates. But here’s a Maryland 2014 election game changer that’s already taken place and is certain to affect the outcome. I’m talking about the 2011 state law switching Maryland’s 2014 primary election day from early September to the last Tuesday in June (June 24, 2014). It’s a huge game changer, but first here’s the background: Up until 1966, Maryland’s primary elections were in May. But too many incumbents were getting ambushed (defeated) by challengers for two reasons. First, the state General Assembly and most local legislatures were in session nearly up until the primary election so the in-

cumbents didn’t have time to campaign. Second, if the incumbents cast unpopular votes (taxes, etc.) angry voters didn’t have sufficient time to cool off or forget. So the incumbents moved Maryland’s primary election to the second Tuesday in September, giving them time to mend fences while making their challengers campaign in the dog days of July and August. Then, in 2006, the Democrats (who run the state) faced a dilemma. Defeating Republican governor Bob Ehrlich was their top priority, but a bloody primary between Martin O’Malley and Doug Duncan wouldn’t leave enough healing time between the September primary and the November general election. So the Dems tried moving the primary to June 2006 but pulled back in the face of a certain Ehrlich veto. Then, luckily for the Dems, Duncan dropped out and the bloodbath was averted. Now, facing their first contentious governor’s primary in 20 years, the Dems got lucky again. A 2009 federal law requiring sufficient time for sending absentee ballots to military and overseas voters gave the Dems cover to move the primary to June 24, 2014. The resulting time compression (from a five-month campaign to a two-month campaign) will have huge consequences as follows:

Voter turnout Maryland’s primary election turnout already stinks. The Sept. 14, 2010, turnout was 24 percent, the lowest on record (despite early voting). On June 24, 2014, when school is out and folks are on vacations, is anyone going to show up? This year, New Jersey’s June 4 primary had a 9 percent turnout, down from 2009’s June turnout of 11 percent. Meanwhile, this year’s Virginia June 11 primary, limited to legislative seats, had a 3.1 percent turnout. Back in June 2009, when the governors were on the Virginia ballots, turnout was 6.3 percent. So, look for a record-breaking, dismal June 24 turnout in Maryland giving amplified power to the organized vote of labor unions, political machines and special interest groups. But even these folks must mobilize months earlier than usual.

public schools. We have come far in this decade. That the conditions described in the first two sentences occur most frequently in schools populated by children confronting socio-economic challenges suggests that we still have far to go. Will our community rise to the challenge of funding appropriate additions to the educational infrastructure? Or, will some future union president hear a principal say, as I recently did, “Now, let’s visit the other school outside?”

Money State law bars state elected officials from raising money during the 90-day legislative session (January to April). But campaigns and advertising buys can’t wait, so the candidates must have most of their cash in hand by the end of this year — a huge advantage to those who have raised and hoarded funds.

Media Maryland’s primary campaigns have shrunken from a three-act play to a oneact play. How will the press corps respond? After focusing on the legislative session until mid-April, catching their breath, and then turning to the campaigns, the races will be almost over. Time compression will make this the briefest, least-reported and poorestattended primary in Maryland history. And that’s just the headliner governor’s race; the down ballot races for state and local seats will be non-events drawing zero coverage. Also, moving up the primary election day meant moving up the filing deadline (when tickets and campaigns must be finalized) from July to Feb. 25. Look for some gubernatorial candidates to be frantically searching for running mates on Feb. 24. The two Democratic gubernatorial front-runners reacted to this time compression very differently. Anthony Brown launched an early campaign depending on fellow incumbents and their organizations. Doug Gansler is playing a solo waiting game depending on his financial advantage to wage a TV blitz. Maryland’s 2014 miniature primary gives even greater influence than usual to candidates with money, name recognition (incumbents), special interest support and favorable media treatment. It’s “politics as usual,” crammed into a two-minute drill. Blair Lee is chairman of the board of Lee Development Group in Silver Spring and a regular commentator for WBAL radio.

3 p.m. Friday Suitland cruised to an opening victory over Potomac, but Eleanor Roosevelt — if it can get past the opening-week kinks it showed in a loss to Gwynn Park — could be a stiffer test. MikeRyan Mofor is dependable, though he needs more help to counter Suitland quarterback Wesley Wolfolk and receiver Nick Nelson.

verything went so smoothly at first. The meeting with Henry A. Wise High School guidance counselors, summer workouts with the defending 4A state championship football team and submitting transfer papers and transcripts were all on the right track. And then, after an entire summer of feeling like a part of the Pumas’ family, Anthony Fludd Jr. was told he couldn’t suit up in the Wise uniform he had been waiting to don since the close of his junior year at private school Bishop McNamara. Fludd’s grades, he was told, wouldn’t be converted from McNamara’s plus-minus scale to Prince George’s County Public Schools’ grading standards. His gradepoint average was too low. “I don’t care if we have to move to Mexico,” his

father, Anthony Fludd, Sr. said before his son was cleared to play. “My son is going to play football his senior year of high school. One way or the other, my son is going to do what he wants to do. This is his avenue to college. My son’s entire life is in front of him right now ... and you have a school system robbing a kid of his future and his dreams.” After 10 days of sitting, waiting for his appeal to come down from the PGCPS office, the younger Fludd was eventually cleared to play, but it didn’t come without consequence. He missed scrimmages, the crucial though relatively meaningless preseason tests where the depth chart can be scrambled. As a result of the missed time, Fludd’s starting job at cornerback was lost and he was relegated to special teams. He sunk so far down, in fact, that he found himself as the fourth stringer. “It hurt me because I couldn’t be out there,” said

Mike-Ryan Mofor remembers walking to school alone at 4 years old while living in Cameroon. Mofor — his mother preferred Mike and his father preferred Ryan, so they compromised on their son’s name, but most people just call him Mike — hasn’t lost that independent streak, forging a path that has made him Eleanor Roosevelt High School’s starting running back. Now a junior, Mofor spent his freshman year at Laurel High School and worked out with the football team before the season began. But he wasn’t satisfied with his role and joined the Laurel Wildcats 14-and-under youth team. Mofor found the Wildcats’ scrimmages too easy and he went back to Laurel, where he was put on the junior varsity team. Eleanor Roosevelt coach Tom Green watched his junior varsity team play Laurel’s that year and he wondered why Laurel’s running back wasn’t playing varsity. When Mofor transferred to Eleanor Roosevelt the following year, Green recalled that game and realized it was Mofor who had impressed him. Mofor proved even more impressive as a sophomore last season, rushing for 832 yards (most among Prince George’s County public school players returning this season) and eight touchdowns. During the offseason, Mofor worked on adding weight, but he still’s just 5-foot-8 and 183 pounds. He ran for a team-high 77 yards on 17 carries in Eleanor Roosevelt’s opening loss to Gwynn Park and he’ll attempt to use his bruising style against Suitland at 3 p.m. Friday at Eleanor Roosevelt. “The first guy never tackled him,” Green said. Sometimes, it sounds as if Mofor just decides how he’ll perform and then does. He recalls a JV game where he was sluggish

As players from both teams gathered their belongings following the first match of the tournament, the rumblings began. Whispers turned to excited murmurs as news that the legend had arrived spread throughout the Glassmanor Cricket Field in Oxon Hill. The field, which used to be a baseball field, is situated behind

Glassmanor Elementary School and surrounded by an impressive wall of trees that swallows any balls that are hit out of the park. Here, players of all ages from Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., came to play cricket as part of the inaugural Maryland Cricket Cup, presented by the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission and the Department of Parks and Recreation in Prince George’s County. And at this seemingly-random field on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend (Aug. 31),

Prince George’s County record All games


A pick-up team from Prince George’s County (wearing orange) competes against Mavericks Cricket Club in the first game of the three-day Maryland Cricket Cup at Glassmanor Cricket Field in Oxon Hill.


Continued from Page A-10 one of the Cup’s organizers, Elisha Pulivarti, was arriving from Dulles International Airport after chauffeuring Alvin Kallicharan on the final leg of his journey from his home in London to Oxon Hill. The excitement (players wanted to shake hands, snap photos and simply marvel at his presence) was as palpable as the unlikelihood of Kallicharan being there in the first place. And while Kallicharan’s name might not be of the household variety in the United States, he’s a legend in cricketing circles. The former West Indian batsman played from 1972-81, was named the Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1973 and was part of the 1975 and 1979 West Indies team that won the Cricket World Cup. Now 64 years old and having just stepped off an interna-


Continued from Page A-10 in the first half, went to the bathroom at halftime and then scored on a long run and a long punt return. The night before his first varsity game, he watched Michigan State’s Le’Veon Bell hurdle a Boise State defender. The next day, Mofor hurdled a Norview defender. Mofor has garnered interest from Auburn, Penn State, Howard, James Madison, Richmond, Old Dominion and Rutgers.


Continued from Page A-10 Fludd, Jr., who suited up in Saturday’s clash with Frederick Douglass, a 20-14 come-frombehind win against the Eagles. “I had high expectations coming to a championship team. It’s just a family. I worked with them all summer.” Athletes are changing schools at an alarming rate, sometimes “attending” three or four in a single year, but transferring doesn’t quite pan out the way an athlete or his parents might expect for a variety of reasons. In this case, a rule detailing whether PGCPS would convert Fludd’s GPA at McNamara, which uses a weighted system, to the county’s system, was a bit ambiguous. This resulted in the miscommunication that had Fludd sit the bench for 10 days. “The problem was that [Fludd, Sr.] interpreted the rules incorrectly,” PGCPS’ Athletic Director Earl Hawkins said. “We normally don’t [convert grades], but we did that in this case. The rule in our handbook just wasn’t clear enough.” In other cases, a coach may have left, and the athlete will then seek a system to better fit his needs. After Blair Mills stepped down from coaching Our Lady of Good Counsel’s boys’ basketball team, five players sought a new school. Byron Hawkins, for example, is reportedly on his fourth school, Clinton Christian, in the span of just a few months. Similar attrition followed in the wake of Stu Vetter’s departure from Montrose Christian. Still, others will transfer expecting a boost in playing time or college recruitment exposure and find that their skill set might not be the best fit. Before long, they may land in a new school with a new team and a new coach to woo. After the Fludd appeal, PGCPS’ GPA-conversion rule now states that a student’s GPA is what it is no matter the system

tional flight, Kallicharan tossed on a bright yellow Damascus jersey — one of the six participating teams and a member of the Washington Metropolitan Cricket Board — and played. “I’ll be playing against you today. It’s an honor,” said one of his opponents. “Don’t bowl too quick,” Kallicharan replied with a smile. All of this was in the effort of promoting one of the world’s more popular sports in the United States. “I want to see the sport grow in the right direction,” Kallicharan said. “The goal is to spread the game here among the local people, the white community, the African community and help them understand what the game is. That’s the only way it’s going to be successful and take off.” The Cup is a direct result of Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley’s (D.) 2011 meeting with Chief Minister of Maharastra Prithviraj Dajisaheb Chaven in Mumbai during which,

Northwestern at Parkdale Silver Oak at McNamara Eastern Technical at Gwynn Park Suitland at Eleanor Roosevelt High Point at Laurel Flowers at Bowie DuVal at Wise Oxon Hill at Bladensburg Ballou at Douglass Surrattsville at Largo Crossland at Forestville Central at Maritime Industry Academy Capitol Christian at Friendly Bohemia Manor at Fairmont Heights Pallotti at St. Paul’s St. Frances vs. DeMatha Options at Riverdale Baptist

among many other topics, the two states discussed a proposal for bilateral exchange of the sport of cricket via the WMCB. “When you look at sports, sports have been an institution for me, an education for me,” Kallicharan said. “And to be here in this part of the world to be able to help promote the sport is special. “You can see the enthusiasm with which these chaps play cricket and it’s great. For us, it’s a national sport. That’s our passion, that’s our love. Cricket first, and then your wife.”

Mofor said seeing the recruiters who visit Eleanor Roosevelt has affirmed his decision to transfer, and Green has also seen enough to be pleased Mofor left Laurel. “He’s a difference maker in any program,” Green said. “And just like he’s made a difference in ourprogram,hewouldhavemade a difference in theirs. So, unfortunateforthemthathe’swithus,but I’m not upset about it.” Off the field, when Mofor is not cooking — he admits the chicken he makes can’t compare to the chicken his aunt caught and cooked fresh in Cameroon

— Mofor loves to read. His favorite book is “The Hoopster,” and anything else by Alan Lawrence Sitomer also rates highly. Really, Mofor likes any book that has a lesson at the end. What lesson will conclude the story of his high school career? “He wasn’t the biggest dude on the field, but if he wanted to do it, he would do it,” Mofor said. “He could take over a game at any moment. You don’t have to be big to do anything. You just need the will.”

— there will be no conversion, according to Earl Hawkins. This clarification left Good Counselto-Wise transfer Trevor Brown unable to play until the first report card comes out at the end of the quarter — somewhere around the onset of playoffs. But, as Fludd Sr. pointed out, Brown is 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds. His body alone will attract attention. Fludd, Jr.’s 5-foot-9, 160-pound frame, well, not so much. “He’s an athlete,” the elder Fludd said. “He’ll work his way back into his position.” Recruiters at Kent State, Old

Dominion, Bryant, and Coastal Carolina are still in pursuit — namely Kent State — and the Fludd’s will not have to move to New Mexico for the son to play high school football. But the process is not always the easy exchanging of papers it sometimes appears to be. “It’s a life lesson,” Fludd, Jr. said. “It makes me want to do everything 200 percent. No jogging, nothing. I know I got to work hard. I should have [the starting job] back by the third week.”

Los Angeles sculptor explores racism, sexism in “Still ...” n



Always looking for new materials, Los Angeles sculptor Alison Saar heard that an organization she knew needed to sell a pile of antlers cast off by deer in Montana. So she bought 200 pairs. Eager to work with glass, she spent time at the Pilchuck Glass School near Seattle learning about the medium’s malleable properties and how to incorporate them into her work.

her exhibit “Still ...” coming to the David C. Driskell Center at the University of Maryland, College Park. In the exhibit, Saar, who is biracial, explores issues of racial identity and bigotry as well as sexism, ageism and love and loss. She explores the meanings of the word still, in one piece using tubing and glass to suggest alcohol and moonshine as a metaphor for distilling down “to the essence of racism and why we can’t [seem] to go beyond it.”

Salguero will perform at Harmony Hall on Wednesday morning, just two days after the start of Hispanic Heritage Month and as a part of the center’s Kids Day Out programming. “The goal of my show is to teach kids Spanish and Latin culture,” Salguero said. “I do it through a show that is very interactive.

Play focuses on aftereffects of New York terrorist attacks BY


The attacks on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, were felt by everyone throughout the country. People living in New York and Washington, D.C., were hit the hardest — physically as well as mentally. And those who worked as first responders had to grieve while they were fighting to save lives. Shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks, author and playwright Anne Nelson wrote a one-act play called “The Guys,” which premiered at the Flea Theater in New York. The story revolves around an FDNY captain who works with an editor to write eulogies for the men he lost on that tragic day. Theater Project Beltsville, in its first full season, will present the play Sept. 11-15 at Abiding Presence Lutheran Church in Beltsville. Director Franklin Akers said that while the message and the play are important, the reasons for choosing to do the play were much simpler. “We have to consider size — it’s a very small space,” Akers said. “I have to consider cast size. That sounds terrible, but that’s one of the considerations. Of course, it’s not the only one.” Akers said he was in search of plays that featured just a couple of actors. While thumbing through a catalog, “The Guys” caught his eye. He sent for a review copy of the show and, aside from seeing a few warning signs of possible directing issues, he decided to go with it. “[Sept. 11] is an important thing to me and an important thing to remember,” Akers said. “I thought it would suit

our theater. I had several other people read it, and any doubts I had were banished at that point.” One of the issues with the show, according to Akers, is the lack of action and the sheer amount of lines. “There’s hardly any action in it, except for a moment of tango dancing.” Akers said. “Another trap in the show is the woman has pages and pages and pages of monologues. She breaks the fourth wall and talks quite extensively about her experiences as a New Yorker and what 9/11 meant to her. “The more we worked on this play, the more impressed I became with it. It’s an excellent piece of work and … a solid play.” In fact, the play was turned into a movie featuring Anthony LaPaglia and Sigourney Weaver. Akers said he wanted his actors to bring in their own take on their characters. “I asked them not to watch [the movie] until a certain amount of time had passed,” Akers said. “We’ve all been watching it over the past week. I just didn’t want them to get prejudices as to how their characters should be.” Akers said that audiences who know nothing about the show should expect to learn about human beings in general.

incredible things happen in their lives. It shows how people are brought together by things like this. The play itself is not about 9/11. It’s about two people who come into contact with each other because of 9/11 and what goes on with

them as they share their experiences. “I hope audiences take away the heightened sense of humanity in all people.”

‘Riddick’: And then there was Vin BY




From the dusty annals of a sciencefiction franchise belonging to another age, that of “Pitch Black” (2000) and “The Chronicles of Riddick” (2004) and several video game variations, here’s a modestly scaled summer picture continuing the legend that time and many moviegoers forgot. And it’s fun! Extremely violent, cleverly managed fun, full of eviscerating aliens, Vin Diesel making those little swimmer goggles look sharp and Katee Sackhoff of “Battlestar Galactica” swaggering around as a sexually ambiguous bounty hunter stuck with a bunch of guys on a crummy planet, ruled (more or less) by the escaped prisoner Riddick, whose story is recapped in “Riddick” but there’s not much to it, don’t worry. This is not one of those Johnnycome-lately sequels preoccupied with getting a new audience up to speed on where the story was. It’s about living in the moment, in the now, and killing in the now. The character name Riddick has a twee, sprightly air, two adjectives which do not bring Vin Diesel to mind. But he’s the one taking care of his adversaries in a plot line recalling Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None,” except here it’s: “And Then There Was Vin.”


Continued from Page B-1 Saar will give a gallery talk about her work at the “Still ...” opening reception on Thursday. The exhibit will run through Dec. 13. On Oct. 10, the Driskell Center will also host a panel discussion about sculpture using the “Still ...” exhibit for context.

n 3 stars n R; 119 minutes n Cast: Vin Diesel; Katee Sackhoff; Bokeem Woodbine; Karl Urban; Jordi Molla n Directed by David Twohy

And here’s the beauty part, to the extent writer-director David Twohy’s simple, compact movie can be called beautiful: The bounty hunters are all individuals, and you actually care about some of them, so it’s not simply a “Saw”-type grinder of a movie, wherein we wonder how the next side of beef is going to get sliced. I mean, we do wonder that, but there are other things going on. “Riddick” opens with a near-wordless sequence set on a hot, scrubby planet, where our antihero, betrayed by the Necromongers — there, that’s it: done with the plot summary — is left for dead among the winged beasts and slithering giant scorpion- and fanged squid-like denizens of the swamps. The opening half-hour of Twohy’s picture is a grabber, a chronicle of Riddick dealing with the swamp things and his domestication of a dingo-type alien jackal

The event will be the first in a series about issues in contemporary art called “The Arts in Public Discourse at the David C. Driskell Center.” An artist for most of her life, Saar has exhibited in galleries around the country, The Contemporary in Baltimore, the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C., The Brooklyn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the

The occasional voice-over (“Whole damn planet wanted a piece of me”) reminds us that Riddick can, in fact, speak if needed. Then come the bounty hunters, some old, some new, and “Riddick” turns into a different picture, one that scrambles your sympathies nicely as Riddick squares off against the meanest of them while everyone contends with ace creature designer Patrick Tatopou-

Carpenter Center at Harvard University, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, among many others. A child of artistic parents, her Caucasian father, Richard Saar, is an art conservationist and her biracial mother, Betye Saar, is a well known sculptor. Saar worked on her pieces for “Still ...” between 2010 and 2012, making use of her growing knowledge of glass and also

los’ alien animal kingdom. The movie is worth seeing simply for the ace-ofspades-shaped ears on the hero’s pet dingo. The first half’s more compelling than the second; the flying effects, with zippy hovercrafts, look cheeseball; and the whole of “Riddick” smacks of being filmed in GreenScreenLand, which it was. (And Montreal.) More persuasively than the recent “After Earth”

her feelings about the backlash against the election of President Obama in 2008. “On the one hand, it was phenomenal that the country could elect an African-American president, but there were many horrible, dark racist things that bubbled up once he got elected,” she said. She said that didn’t really surprise her, except for the comments coming from well-



educated politicians. “This exhibit is little more political [that my earlier ones] because of the hatred coming out,” she said. In “Black Lightning” (a play on the slang term “white lightning”), Saar presents a charred stool, a mop, a bucket and a set of glass boxing gloves hanging from a pole and filled with a liquid tinged with red. She said it’s about black men and the futures once thought suitable for them — to work as a janitor or a boxer but not to work as a president. Hateful comments about Obama also stirred up her own feelings about being biracial in a culture where often neither black nor white groups accept you as their own. In “50 Proof,” Saar presents a metal stand holding a basin filled with a dark liquid. Tubing runs through the basin up through a glass heart and into a clear glass head that is half filled with the dark liquid, which drips from the eyes as tears. “It’s about the theme of the ‘tragic mulatto,’ about being between two worlds, about feeling compelled to align myself,” she said. Saar earned of bachelor’s degree in studio art and art history in 1978 from Scripps College in Claremont, Calif. She studied Afro-Caribbean, Haitian, African and Afro-Cuban art and also studied the mythology of Greeks, Romans and Africans. In 1981 she earned a Master of Fine Arts from the Otis Art Institute (now the Otis College of Art and Design) in Los Angeles, where she wrote her thesis about self-taught African-American artists, becoming influenced by African American folk art. She said she sees AfricanAmerican and Latino students in Los Angeles who aren’t encouraged to go to college, or

who want to go but can’t pay the tuition. “It’s another hurdle for them,” she said. “I see so many kids who [instead] have got to help their families out.” In her piece “Weight,” Saar places a young black girl carved from wood on a swing that hangs down from one end of a cotton scale. Hanging from the other end are pots and pans, a bucket and a scythe entangled in ropes and chains. “What we’re really talking about in this day and time, children are expected to only do so much,” she said about low expectations for non-white students. “There are some phenomenal teachers, but there are still some that are backwards,” said Saar. “It’s heartbreaking. There are still archaic perceptions of what people of color are capable of.” In the exhibit Saar also expresses her feelings about love, pain and loss in what appear to be three lighter pieces cast in bronze that she calls the Hankerin’ Hearts. Three little human hearts — Hincty, Mosey and Gimpy — are moving across the floor, one ahead of the two others, each of them moving along on four long legs that look more like spindly, damaged stilts. She also deals with sexism and aging in “Still Run Dry,” where she has fashioned female reproductive organs using tubing and glass that looks blotched and darkened. There is also a glass uterus filled with twigs. “There’s a view that women of a certain age are kind of useless,” she said. “It’s another form of bigotry. We’re still objects, bodies.” In other pieces, Saar incorporates the antler racks that she has coated with graphite to look like steel, portraying black African women as strong, sturdy and also mythic. “En Pointe” presents a black woman with her ankles tied hanging from the ceiling with the antlers growing from her head placed squarely on the floor as if supporting her. In “Rouse,” a strong black African woman stands in a nest of entangled antlers, cradling a smaller ivory-colored figure curled within the enormous pair of antlers growing from her head.

Ten bands booked for 10th Greenbelt Blues Festival BY


Greenbelt isn’t your typical music festival scene, or so say coordinators. “It’s a very personal place,” said John Vengrouski, organizer of the 10th annual Greenbelt Blues Festival. “It’s a unique place — it has its own attitude.” This year’s day-long event on Saturday in the heart of the planned, Depression-era community will start outside in Roosevelt Center at 1 p.m. — an hour earlier than last year — then shift inside to the New Deal Café at 8 p.m. The lineup of 10 bands includes musicians performing for the first time this year, including guitarist Billy Thompson, singer Jennifer Cooper and her band GrooveSpan, and the blues, soul and R&B band the Oz Review, as well as festival regulars such as the Paulverizers and Fast Eddie & The Slow Pokes, who play Chicago-style blues. “None of them just chug through tunes — they’re up there performing,” said Vengrouski. “They’re all really, really in your face,” he said. “They have something to say, something to get across.” Vengrouski is a guitarist with the Capital Blues Ensemble, also in the lineup, a group which he describes as a “horn, R&B, late ’60s show band.” The blues festival, which charges no admission, is sponsored by Friends of New Deal Café Arts and Beltway Plaza Mall, with support from the city of Greenbelt.

Fans are welcome to bring lawn chairs and also are welcome to show their appreciation for the performers by contributing to tip buckets passed around during the performances. A long-time musician, Thompson said he first learned the harmonica, then switched to guitar at age 18. He played as a side man with country bands for a while and has also toured with bands around the United States and Europe, opening for Robert Cray, B.B. King, Sonny Landreth, Joe Cocker and the Neville Brothers. “It was playing with Art Neville and Earl King that helped me solidify my ideas of more than one style of blues,” said Thompson, who today describes his music as “soul-infused blues gumbo.” Thompson said he plans to play tunes from his CD “Tangerine Sky” and his most recent album, “A Better Man,” which was nominated by Blues Blast Magazine for 2012 Contemporary Blues Album of the Year. Thompson, who lives in West Virginia, said he soon plans to release his

They are more openminded to something new. There are fewer preconceived notions, fewer prejudices.” In 2012, Salguero performed more than 120 shows, and while business is booming, the musician said the bookings have pre-

vented him from recording an album. But that will change this spring. Salguero plans to release his debut CD, “Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés,” in April 2014. His CD is just another way the musician hopes to expose younger audiences to a new culture. “There is a bigger chance that I’m going to change a kid’s mind about a foreign culture than an adult’s,” he said.
