Voter fraud a problem in county, group says

New start for Brentwood police force n Interim chief hired to rebuild department BY


The Brentwood Police Department is starting over, from scratch. The town let go of the department’s only remaining full-time employee — Chief Jason Copeland — and hired interim chief Samuel Prue of Fort Washington on Aug. 20 to rebuild the force, which was disbanded in 1972 and reinstated in 2009. “The force never got established properly when they reformed it a few years ago, so we’re hoping to do it the right way this time,” Councilman Jason Barnett said. The town also hired John O’Connor on Aug. 26 as a full-time officer. O’Connor worked under Prue in Seat Pleasant’s 14-member police department, where Prue was the chief from 2010 to 2012. According to O’Connor, the Brentwood force has been mismanaged since its reinstatement, with slow response times and inefficient budgeting. Brentwood Mayor Betty-Jean Schmiedigen said Copeland, who became chief in March, was relieved of his duties Aug. 2 “for personal reasons which cannot be disclosed.” Copeland could not be reached for comment. Schmiedigen and the Town Council, all newly elected May 6, approved funds in June to add two additional part-time officers to the force and a full-time officer this fiscal year. The town had one full-time officer and one police chief position before the fiscal 2014 budget was passed. By the end November, O’Connor said the department will include a chief; two full-time officers; two part-time officers; and five volunteer reserve officers, which are unpaid positions. One of the reserve positions will be converted into a fulltime officer if officials are able to find additional revenue in the budget. “We have the benefit of having a more pro-police department council,” said Jeff Clark, a former Brentwood councilman.

Dead Prince George’s County residents apparently still care about who is president and came out in droves to vote in last year’s election, according to the findings of a Maryland nonprofit group that tracks state voting registrations. The volunteer-driven Election Integrity Maryland, which has 169 members, found 2,400 out of 3,500 voter records had “irregularities” — mainly dead people voting and people voting under invalid addresses, said Cathy Kelleher, president of the statewide-based nonprofit. State and county officials said they looked into the findings and could not confirm all the irregularities. She said not keeping voter lists “clean” is a violation of the National Voter Registration Act that requires states to maintain timely and accurate voter registration lists for federal elections. Dead people registering to vote or casting votes is considered voter fraud and cases are sent to the Office of the Maryland State Prosecutor. Violators can face jail time, state election officials said. Since the watchdog group’s creation in 2011, it has filed challenges with the Maryland Board of Elections regarding Prince George’s voter list in May and July of 2012, Kelleher said. “The [state] board did what they always do, and they did nothing,” she said, referring to the group’s first two filings. “We do not feel they have adequately demonstrated they’ve been looking into these matters ... If we do get a response, it’s a partial response.” Mary Cramer Wagner, director of the Maryland Board of Elections’ voter registration and petition division, said she received the group’s reports and, following protocol, turned them over to the county, which constantly audits county lists. “List maintenance is an ongoing daily process,” Wagner said.

Battling kudzu


Approximately 120 students clear invasive plant from WSSC land in Laurel



Approximately 120 University of Maryland, College Park, students turned out along a narrow stretch of road in north Laurel to do battle against an invasive species of vine threatening trees along the Patuxent River. “The kudzu is really prevalent here, so we’re trying to get rid of it,” said sophomore Lindsey Ganey as she stood on a steep embankment


pulling kudzu off a tree. “It’s pretty hard work,” said Ganey, 19, of College Park. “There’s so much of it, but it’s not good for the trees.” The students, dubbed “kudzu crusaders” by Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission community outreach manager Kimberly Knox, spent the morning and part of the afternoon Aug. 29 pulling kudzu vines on a stretch of WSSC property running along the Patuxent’s north bank. Kudzu is an ornamental vine native to Japan that has gotten out of control in parts of the United States, covering trees and shrubs in ropy vines, leeching nutrients from the

Zhang, who moved to Greenbelt in 2010, has become well-known throughout the city for documenting Greenbelt’s 75th anniversary, from Jan. 1 to Dec, 31, 2012.

“We felt that his dedication over the last year was so intense and continuing that we were not able to ignore that, even though there were a number of highly qualified people for the honor,” Zugby said.

Dog owners are invited to bring out their canine companions for a swim in the main pool or wading pool. “It’s a chance for dogs to come out and do a little swimming at our Laurel Municipal Pool,” said Bonny DuCote, program specialist for Laurel Parks and Recreation. “It’s a fun event, and owners love seeing their dogs get to swim,” DuCote said. “There aren’t many places where dogs can swim in a safe, monitored environment.” All dogs must be restrained. The cost is $5 per dog and owners receive free admission. Pass holders are free, up to a two dog limit, according to the city’s website.

Management analyst tapped to fill school board seat Newest member is Bowie High graduate, has daughter in school system n



Lyn J. Mundey of Upper Marlboro said she first learned of a Prince George’s County school board vacancy from the school system’s website and decided to apply for the position. “I said to myself, ‘This is something I can assist in with my skills and my own personal dedication.’ So I spoke to my family, and I prayed about it, and decided to apply,” said Mundey, 31. On Aug. 28, County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) announced Mundey’s appointment from a field of 17 candidates to fill the District 7 vacancy left by former board member Carletta Fellows’ resignation in July, according to Baker spokesman Barry Hudson. District 7 stretches through the middle of the county, to include Capitol Heights, Temple Hills, Suitland and portions of Upper Marlboro. Under House Bill 1107, passed by

the Maryland General Assembly last spring, the Prince George’s County executive has the authority to make an appointment to a vacant seat for the remainder of the term, should a seat become vacant. Mundey is a 2000 graduate of Bowie High School, has a daughter in the seventh grade at Benjamin D. Foulois Creative and Performing Arts Academy in Suitland and is an active member of the school’s PTA. Baker education adviser Christian Rhodes said Mundey brings a unique perspective to the board. “Because of her multiple connections to the school system, first as an alumna and now as a parent, tracking her daughter as she’s moved up through the school system, she’s able to see the school system from a very different perspective,” Rhodes said. Mundey has a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Maryland, College Park, and a master’s of business administration degree from Strayer University. She is employed as a management analyst at the U.S. Government Accountability Office, overseeing the agency’s operating policies and privacy program, Hudson said. Mundey said she knew former

District 7 council member Carletta Fellows through their work on education with the Greater Marlboro Democratic Club. Mundey said she had considered running for the seat in the past. “I thought about it, but I never actually went there,” Mundey said, adding that she plans to run for the position when the current term expires in 2016. Mundey said one issue she would like to improve is parental engagement. “There are pockets in the county where there is high parental engagement and then there are other areas where it’s low,” said Mundey. “It’s well-known how involved parents can make a difference in student achievement.” Board chairman Segun Eubanks said he first met Mundey at Suitland’s back-to-school night Aug. 29, and was impressed with her energy and dedication. “She is a very dynamic, very energetic young lady, as well as a committed parent,” Eubanks said. “When you think of the board as a citizen board, she is the consummate citizen.”

Another board member resigns Longtime representative to depart, citing personal reasons n



Prince George’s County Board of Education member Donna HathawayBeck announced Aug. 28 that she is resigning her District 9 seat effective Sept. 6, citing personal reasons. Beck, 57, an Upper Marlboro resident, said she has struggled to balance her role on the school board with her role as grandmother to four young children. “It’s very hard for me, when one of my grandchildren is coming to visit me, and I have to go to a three-hour long committee meeting,” Beck said. “I’ve really struggled with providing the type of constituent services I used to provide.” The new school governance structure, which took effect in June, have changed the board’s focus, she said. “The role of the board member has morphed into community engage-

ment and building families within the system,” Beck said. “I know at least 10 people in my district who would be phenomenal at this type of parental engagement work.” Beck has served on the board since being elected as an at-large representative in 2006, following the dissolution of an appointed board. Beck said her resignation Sept. 6 will give her time to close out her affairs. “I don’t want to give anyone the impression that I’m leaving in a huff or that kind of thing,” Beck said. Her term would have ended December 2014. Board Vice Chairwoman Carolyn Boston (Dist. 6) described Beck as a tireless advocate for education. “She really held our feet to the fire when it came to certain budget issues,” Boston said. Beck said she felt the time had come to step down. “You need to know when it is time to go, and when to let someone step into your seat,” Beck said. “I am not irreplaceable.”

Laurel elections include rematch for at-large post New challengers seek Ward 1, Ward 2 seats




Parents of students attending Thomas G. Pullen Creative and Performing Arts School in Landover say the school’s parking lot, which is under construction, has been an inconvenience.

Pullen parents upset with lot delay, upkeep ‘Eyesore’ property to be converted by end of November, officials say n



Thomas G. Pullen Creative and Performing Arts School gets a top grade for its curriculum, but a failing grade for the appearance of part of its property, according to some parents. The school, at 700 Brightseat Road in Landover, is converting a front fenced-off area into a parking lot. Parents described the vacant lot as an “eyesore” and said that the construction — which began in 2011 — needs to be completed soon to improve traffic at the school. Clemont Jacobs of Bowie said the lot, owned by Prince

George’s County Schools, is unkept, with grass growing out of control. It has geese and rodents, he said. “If it doesn’t look good, I’m not going to feel good about being in there,” Jacobs said. His daughter, a third-grader at the school, has noticed the problem, he said. Max Pugh, a school system spokesman, said he expects the parking lot to be completed by the end of November. Pugh said the project was delayed because of an issue with a past contractor. Principal Pamela Lucas said that about 10 additional buses are transporting students this school year, and have clogged carpool lanes. ShaVon McConnell, a Prince George’s County Schools spokeswoman, said bus routes were added throughout the district in order to increase trans-

portation efficiency. Parents said some cars have been backed into Brightseat Road as a result of the added school buses, but the situation has improved since the first day of school, which was Aug. 19. Lucas said a completed parking lot will clear traffic congestion by freeing space for cars and buses. “With the way it looks, parents are frustrated. It’ll get better,” Lucas said. Betty Sawyer, the parent of an 8-year-old student at the school, said she was impressed by the school’s teachers and staff members, but the vacant parking lot made the school appear unattractive to an outsider. If she was not familiar with the school’s academic reputation, she said, she would not send her daughter there. “First appearances are everything,” Sawyer said.

On the Maryland State Assessment — a test given to students in grades 3 through 8 — 92 percent of the Pullen students scored proficient or advanced in reading and 84.7 scored proficient or advanced in math. Michael Dunnigan of Landover, a parent of a Thomas Pullen second-grader, said the lot and transportation issues were a minor inconvenience. “Looks can be deceiving. It’s a great school,” Dunnigan said. Melanie Johnson, whose daughter recently enrolled in kindergarten at the school, said aesthetics were secondary to the education. “That doesn’t really interest me,” Johnson said of the vacant lot. “What I’m concerned about is what’s happening behind those doors.”

Laurel’s Nov. 5 elections will feature a 2011 rematch in its at-large council race between two long-time public figures and newcomers entering the Ward 1 and Ward 2 races. John Mathew Smith is challenging incumbents Valerie Nicholas and H. Edward Ricks for one of the two Ward 1 seats, while Thomas Elwood Matthews looks to take one of the two seats from Ward 2 incumbents Frederick Smalls and Donna Crary. Eight-time incumbent Michael Leszcz hopes to once again emerge victorious over the challenge of Adrian Rousseau, who volunteers at the city’s Boys & Girls Club as athletic director and mentoring director. The filing deadline for Laurel’s council elections, which are held every two years, passed at 5 p.m. Tuesday. In the ward races, the top two vote-getters in each ward win the contested seats. Leszcz said if re-elected, he would continue to oversee economic redevelopment and street repairs in Laurel as well as working to ensure fiscal responsibility. “We need to manage growth, quality growth that Laurel citizens are looking for,” Leszcz said. “The key is to make sure we continue in the black. We need to make sure we’re operating within our means, and make sure people continue to enjoy living in Laurel.” Rousseau said he felt compelled to run for office to ad-

dress the need for activities for city youth, and said it would be one of his goals to bring the Boys & Girls Club into the city’s annual budget. Rousseau unsuccessfully ran against Leszcz in 2011, getting 41 percent of the vote. John Mathew Smith is a retired press photographer who moved to Laurel in 2006. He said he’d like to raise awareness of animal issues and abolish the $30 annual dog park fee, and would also like to revisit the red light and speed cameras. Nicholas will be seeking her second full term. “I want us to continue to rebuild Main Street, and to bring in new businesses to the area,” she said. Ricks will be seeking his second consecutive term, and sixth overall, having served four terms from 1980 to 1988. Ricks said that, if reelected, one of his goals would be to seek more funding for the Capital Improvements Plan budget, which funds infrastructure, maintenance and repairs, including vehicles for the police department and other city agencies and gutter repairs on Montgomery Street. Crary will be seeking her third term on the council. Crary, elected in 2008, said she will also work toward ensuring that new developments are environmentally friendly. Smalls said his goals for a sixth term include economic development, enhancing city services and improving public safety, particularly around Laurel’s parks, three of which were the targets of arson this year, through additional police presence and other means. Matthews did not return calls for comment by deadline. janfenson-comeau

Residents living near airport fearful after two planes crash Community members worried homes could be hit n


Two recent crashes near Freeway Airport have some Bowie residents concerned that a plane could land on someone’s house or lawn. Around 3:40 p.m. Monday, a single-engine plane from the airport crashed on the westbound side of Route 50. Three people — a male pilot and a male and female passenger — were in the plane, said Prince George’s County Fire Department assistant fire chief Alicia Francis. Maryland State Police identified the three as owner/pilot Alireza Tivay, 58, of Washington, D.C., and passengers Seth Sharpe, 45, of Laurel and Deborah Tucker, 48, of Alexandria, Va. Tivay and Sharper were listed in critical condition and Tucker was listed in serious condition after receiving initial medical attention, Francis said. The plane crashed shortly after takeoff and the cause of the accident is under investigation, said National Transportation Safety Board spokesman Eric Weiss. Most aviation accidents that occur in a given year typically happen with general aviation flights, which are all civilian flights except scheduled passenger airlines, such as the recently crashed Freeway Airport plane, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. There were 1,471 general aviation accidents recorded in

“[The airport] is too close to homes and too close to the freeway.” Modupe Owo, owner of a grocery store near the airport 2012 in the U.S. and there is an average of about 1,500 a year, according to a NTSB safety report. The airport has been in Bowie since 1947. Matt Lindquist, Freeway Airport’s chief pilot, said he hasn’t seen many crash instances since starting at the airport in 1999 and estimated there had been no more than five. “Our concern is for the pilot and his well-being; that’s our focus,” he said. “This is just one of those rare things that happen. Most of the incidents have just been localized to the airport grounds and airport property.” Lindquist said in the instances when something occurs outside the airport boundary, it’s due to poor weather or pilot error. “I get why people would be concerned, but these kinds of incidents unfortunately tend to be in takeoff or landing within the airport boundary.” he said. The incident marked the second crash from Freeway in less than a month. “They need to make sure the planes are properly maintained and they should alert the com-

munity to what they are doing about the crashes,” said Ray Dent of Bowie. Freeway officials said in the event of minor incidents, NTSB is alerted and the incident is recorded in the log books, but the community is not alerted unless people are injured or a plane is severely damaged. Dent lives on Old State Road, an area about couple of miles from the airport. “It could have landed on a home,” Dent said. “It could have been more a catastrophe than it was.” Modupe Owo, who owns a grocery store near the airport, said officials should consider moving the airport now that so many people live in the area. “We are talking about safety,” said Owo of Bowie. “It is too close to homes and too close to the freeway.” A small, single-engine plane crashed into a corn field outside Bowie during landing on Aug. 24, according to a Maryland State Police news release. The four passengers were not severely injured and walked away from the plane, which flipped upside down, according to the release. Freeway officials said the crash was due to pilot error. Owo said she hears the planes often and with recent events, whenever she hears planes approaching closely, she gets concerned. “I pray nothing is going to happen,” Owo said.

Judge allows option to request review of 45-year sentence BY SOPHIE PETIT STAFF WRITER

Keith Washington, a former Prince George’s County homeland security official and county police officer, was denied a retrial Tuesday for his 2008 trial, in which he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, said John Erzen, spokesman for the Prince George’s County Office of the State’s Attorney. Washington, 53, requested a new trial claiming he was misrepresented by his original, privately hired lawyer, and his new attorney alleged multiple errors in the case, Erzen said.

“We opposed [Washington] getting a new trial ... . There wasn’t anything we found in terms of misrepresentation,” Erzen said. Washington was sentenced to 45 years in prison for shooting two furniture deliverymen in 2007 at his Fort Washington home, killing one and wounding the other, Erzen said. Washington claimed selfdefense but was convicted in 2008 of involuntary manslaughter, two counts of firstdegree assault and two counts of use of a handgun while carrying out a violent crime, according to a news release from the county state’s attorney’s office. The judge allowed Washington to request a three-judge panel to review his sentence, which everyone is entitled to

after sentencing, Erzen said. Due to a paperwork-filing error, Washington did not receive the option to file for the panel review after he was initially sentenced, Erzen said. “That was something he should have been able to do the first time around,” Erzen said. “Something happened in the court system that wasn’t done properly.” If Washington and his new attorney file a panel-review request, the panel can either increase, decrease or leave Washington’s sentence the same, Erzen said. Washington’s attorney handling the request for retrial, Daniel Ginsburg, based in Rockville, did not return calls for comment by press time.

Fort Washington man gets nine-year sentence for armored car robbery n

Others involved in heist await sentencing BY CHASE COOK STAFF WRITER

A Fort Washington man was sentenced Aug. 29 to more than nine years in prison after he pleaded guilty to a June 2012 armored car robbery in Rockville. John Bernard Williams, 48, will spend 112 months in prison followed by five years of supervised release for planning and robbing an armored car in front of the Navy Federal Credit Union in the 12000 block of Rockville Pike and for possession of a firearm connected to a violent crime, according to a news release from the Maryland U.S. Attorney’s Office. Williams planned the robbery with four other men and carried out the crime — stealing $220,000 — on June 13, 2012, according to the plea agreement. Kai Holt, 38, of Waldorf and Marcus Brooks, 21 of Lanham approached the armored car, and Holt drew a gun, causing the employee to drop the money and flee, according to the plea agreement, and the men divvied up the money. Officials believe some of

the money was spent but didn’t have any other details on the stolen cash, said Special Agent Rich Wolf, Baltimore Division FBI spokesman. Holt and Brooks, as well as Carmen Camacho, 31, of Fort Washington, all have pleaded

and Prince George’s Equestrian Center, 14900 Pennsylvania Ave. This is one of the oldest fairs in Maryland, said Doris Case, Prince George’s County Fair Association first vice president. The fair started in 1842. There are plenty of events calling back to the fair’s old days such as traditional livestock competitions between county residents, giving people

the opportunity to participate in history, she said. “It’s the tradition of coming to the county fair,” Case said. “It is being part of what the county evolved from.” The fair’s hours are from 4 to 10 p.m. today; 5 to 11 p.m. Friday; 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, according to the fair’s schedule. — CHASE COOK

Continued from Page A-1 Barnett said the town hired Prue, 66, because of his experience hiring police staff. Prue said he was one of the first members of the Seat Pleasant Police Department when it was established in 1992 and he previously worked for the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police Department. Barnett said the town has started searching for a police chief to replace Prue, whose tenure is expected to last up to eight months. “In the interim, there are things that you have to do for the county, for the state, in order to

keep your certification as a police department,” Prue said. “... I’ll do those things for them while they get themselves together to pick a permanent chief.” On Aug. 17, the department enrolled in the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc., a credentialed authority that certifies public safety agencies. O’Connor said enrolling in CALEA will help the force “set up a guideline and structure for running the police department in a professional manner.” He said the stringent accreditation process could take up to a year. Roger Rudder, who was mayor from 2011 to 2013, said Copeland was effective in the role as chief.

“We need the police department. I don’t know that we needed to break down what we had and rebuild it, but that’s the decision of the new mayor and council,” Rudder said. Brentwood crime statistics were not immediately available. Peter McAvoy said he has not noticed a police presence in his three years residing in Brentwood and did not see the need for additional officers. “It should just have the county’s or Mount Rainier,” McAvoy said, referring to Brentwood policing duties. “It’s kind of pointless to me that it has a police force.”


Continued from Page A-1 and other invasive plant life. Knox said kudzus make it difficult for birds and other wildlife who depend on the trees for food, shelter or nests. “If you weaken the trees, that’s your biggest barrier to sediment getting into the river. That’s why its important to make sure trees can thrive even in winter, and they can’t do that if they’re covered in all this kudzu,” Knox said. Knox said healthy trees and shrubs serve to cool river temperatures by providing shade, allowing the river to hold more oxygen for river life. After three years of work removing kudzu, the area is showing some improvement, Knox said, but the vines keep coming back. Sue Briggs, CIVICUS director, said the program has worked with WSSC for nearly three years battling kudzu and improving the area by planting trees and setting up deer fences to protect saplings. “It’s a great way for our students to connect with the environment and give back to WSSC, which provides the water to the campus,” Briggs said. “There’s no good eradication method other than pulling it out by the roots,” Briggs said. “We cleared this area last year, but it just keeps coming back.”



University of Maryland, College Park, student Maggie James, 19, and other UMD students spent part of Aug. 29 working to remove invasive kudzu vines at Scott Cove along the Pautxent River as part of the university’s service day activities. The kudzu, once removed, is piled up and left to decompose, Knox said. Sophomore Julian Gooch of Accokeek, a CIVICUS member, worked with others to pull kudzu vines from sickly trees with few leaves despite the summer season. “It’s important to me because I want my community to look good,” Gooch said. “I don’t want to live in a community overrun by invasive plants. I want it to look beautiful, and when I’m driving by, I want to see something that looks nice.”

Ashley Heard, 19, a junior and residence adviser at the university, said she hoped the project would raise awareness of the environment. “It’s good that we’re aware of all the things that are a part of our community. A lot of times, we just don’t think about the Patuxent, or trees and nature and whatnot, so I do think it is important that we serve the community in this way,” said the Clinton resident. net

Continued from Page A-1 Maryland is a member of ERIC, the Electronic Registration Information Center, a nonprofit data center that offers member states access to a technology software that allows them to cross-examine voter rolls with state drivers license registration records to verify information is up-to-date, Wagner said. Maryland is one of seven states to initially join ERIC, which launched in 2012. Prince George’s Board of Elections sent Kelleher a letter on Sept. 12, 2012 — which she acknowledged receiving — that summarized the county’s findings after it reviewed the voter rolls in question, said Daneen Banks, deputy administrator for the county board of elections. Banks said the county looked at the thousands of potentially deceased voters or those with potentially wrong addresses the group cited, including 1,026 records of people who might have moved homes. “We found some, but we could not confirm all of the irregularities [the group] reported because they used sources we cannot by law use,” she said. “We cannot haphazardly remove someone from the voter rolls based on a Facebook status.” For example, an obituary is not proof a voter is dead. Confirmation must come from the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Banks said. If a voter record is thought to be inaccurate, the state or county board will send a confirmation letter to the address on the record. If no one replies and the voter does not vote for two consecutive election cycles, the voter is labeled “inactive” and then removed from the list. “We responded and actually went through the process of reviewing and handling this,” Banks said. “We took it very seriously.” Kelleher said the county did not review nearly enough records and will not allow for follow-up questions. “[Integrity groups] are having the exact same issues across the country,” she said.


Continued from Page A-1 interviewed people and crafted articles. “You couldn’t avoid seeing Eric last year, because he was everywhere,” said Sylvia Lewis, the 2011 Outstanding Citizen recipient and one of those who nominated Zhang. “This man who’s been here three years was telling us all about our town. It was unbelievable.” Zhang said he was inspired by the Farm Security Administration’s photography project, documenting the lives of Depression-era families, including some in Greenbelt, during the 1930s and 1940s. “Because of that, I had an interest in documenting life in an American small town,” Zhang said. “So when I moved to Greenbelt, I thought it would be nice to document Greenbelt, since it’s my hometown now, and last year was its 75th anniversary, so there were a number of special events.” Zhang uploaded over 8,000 photos, wrote over 250 posts, and attended approximately 300 community events in 2012. Zhang said he and his wife, Grace, decided to move to Greenbelt from Washington, D.C., after meeting members of the marketing team for the Greenbelt Homes Inc. cooperative while taking photos at the Juneteenth celebration in the District. “This city has impressed us greatly,” Zhang said. “The layout was impressive, and the organizations have been very welcoming.” Zhang was awarded a plaque and a bag of gift certificates donated by Greenbelt area businesses. He also served as Grand Marshal of the Greenbelt Labor Day Parade on Monday and will have his name inscribed on a plaque at the Greenbelt Community Center. “This award is to encourage me to work more, I guess,” Zhang said. Zhang said he plans to publish a book based on his blog, documenting life in Greenbelt in 2012, and he may be expanding his project online to include more photos and articles of organizations he missed in 2012. 128160G

Prince George’s County school board member Carletta Fellows (Dist. 7) listens during the first school board meeting in June under chairman Segun Eubanks, who was appointed by County Executive Rushern L. Baker III. Fellows resigned in July, and Baker has appointed a member to fill her seat.

Don’t replace elected members with appointees

It’s tempting to refer to the Prince George’s County school board as Baker’s board, after all — due to two recent resignations — five of the board’s 13 members will have been appointed by County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D). Under a new state law that took effect June 1, the county executive was allowed to appoint three members to the nine-member elected school board, and the County Council was allowed to appoint one TWEAK STATE LAW member. In addition, the county executive was given power to appoint SO RESIDENTS CAN KEEP VOICE members to any vacant seats — and two elected members have resigned IN SCHOOL since the law was implemented. BOARD EFFORTS For critics who opposed the plan to put appointees on the board, this is a nightmare. Part of the reason so many were willing to accept the new law was because elected members would still dominate the group and be answerable to constituents. It’s extremely rare for elected members to leave before the end of their terms, so when Carletta Fellows (Dist. 7) resigned July 11 and Donna Hathaway-Beck (Dist. 9) announced her resignation last week (effective Sept. 6), it raised a question that many hadn’t foreseen: Could Baker’s picks somehow become the dominant voice on the board? The answer, unfortunately, is yes. Is it the best plan? No. The new structure of the school board is helpful in that it allows the county executive and council to put education experts on the board who can provide some continuity, depth of knowledge and guidance for elected members, who often are not well-versed in school, budgetary and political processes. The structure also allows residents to have representatives to hold accountable for education efforts. When the county had only appointed board members from 2002 to 2006, residents seemed to lose their power as school leaders could make decisions without fear of being booted from office. Having Baker fill empty slots threatens a return to such a situation. Granted, having two board members quit is an anomaly. Hathaway-Beck, who was a well-known education advocate well before she was first elected in 2006, said she wants to spend more time with her four grandchildren and didn’t want that family time to come at the expense of her constituents. Fellows, whose board-issued credit card was suspended for unauthorized charges just months before her resignation, had been a contentious figure on the board, garnering criticism for her “brain trust” approach to decision-making (relying on a group of experts she assembled to advice her on county matters) and her questioning of budget decisions and procedures. Neither situation was predicted, but they both reveal a need for a change in the state law: Elected positions should remain elected positions. Sure, not having to go through two special elections keeps the county from spending money, but residents shouldn’t lose their voice — regardless of the savings. And while residents of District 9, the southern portion of the county, will only have an appointed member until the next election in November 2014, those in District 7 — in the south central part of the county — will have to wait until 2016 to regain an elected representative because of Fellows’ departure. In Baker’s defense, he’s selecting strong members with experience that will surely benefit the board, but he must remember that allowing the public to choose representatives is important, too. Given the longstanding performance problems the Prince George’s school system has endured, Baker’s aggressive approach in getting the General Assembly to allow him to be more hands-on regarding education is understandable. Hopefully, as time reveals weaknesses in the new state law — such as the rule allowing the county executive to fill elected vacancies with appointed members — Baker will be equally charged to improve the legislation.

We people take our lives for granted and tend to be disabled when we are not. I wouldn’t want to claim being handicapped when I’m not. I would feel as though I’m jinxing myself. However, to get a closer parking space, I used to think about it. I watch people every day at grocery stores, shopping malls, etc., parking in handicap parking spaces, get out of their cars — seemingly to be in good health — put a handicap sticker on their vehicle mirror, and walk with no limp, no walking chair, no nothing. They have taken up space for someone who is truly handicapped.

Where are the cops to see this, to issue these inconsiderate people tickets? Parking a little ways from the mall won’t hurt you at all. Besides, of the people I see doing this, some are obese and some are just plain lazy — but they will walk a mile to see a Redskins game. I don’t know about you, but I am thankful I don’t need a handicap sticker, and to the perpetrators, you should be as well. I think stickers should only apply to people who can’t walk at all, and for those who can walk just a little, don’t give it to them. You are hindering their health to do better. Make them walk so they won’t be dependent; that probably will cut out

New federal regs could threaten local farms Each week at farm stands in the Maryland area, we try to explain a peculiar situation to our customers. On the one hand, they want to buy our fresh fruit and vegetables. However, I tell them, that in a few years, these will all be illegal to sell. Why? Because they have some degree of dirt and bacteria on them. The strawberries, for instance, have some trace amount of straw and soil on them. As do the tomatoes, beans and cucumbers. We rinse them before leaving the farm — but we won’t put them through a disinfectant bath nor pack them in antiseptic plastic containers and put “PLU” labels on them. That’s not what consumers want at a farm market — nor is it something we’ll be able to do. Regulations for a new food law — FSMA, the Food Safety Modernization Act — administered by the FDA are currently in the process of being finalized. Although the act originally had protections for family farmers like myself, we see those being ignored or phased out over time. Common sense and following the data of recent food safety scares lead us to a very strong conclusion: the further the food travels from the farm to the consumer, the more opportunities it has to become a food safety problem. This is one reason why 20 million consumers come to farmers markets like ours and want fresh produce from our fields — preferably grown without pesticides,

herbicides or GMO seeds. And sadly, protecting consumers from these synthetic perils is not addressed by FSMA. Nor does the FDA address what is common sense to many scientists, doctors and parents: our bodies are dependent on the good germs and bacteria. If anything, rather than developing the antiseptic globalized industrial-style food system FSMA seeks, we should be searching for ways to increase the amount of good bacteria in our bodies. So, why is this bad science becoming the law of the land? First, it is partially due to corporate profit. Corporations depend on a global supply chain, and in doing so they are finding it increasingly difficult to deliver safe food. At the same time, they are losing market share to the local food systems that customers are demanding. To avoid legal liability, the corporations want to legitimize an industrial approach to sterilizing everything, without regard to the unnecessary and costly burden placed on local farmers. Second, there is the misguided advocacy of the consumer organizations, like Center for Science in the Public Interest. They mean well, but they think that throwing regulatory words and paperwork burden at a problem will solve it. This approach is overly legalistic, and it ignores the realities of nature and the practical fact that over-regulating a sector that is

not causing a problem — small farmers — cannot possibly lead to safer food. And, finally, there is this administration’s commitment to the biotech industry. It’s no accident that FDA’s deputy commissioner responsible for food safety, Michael R. Taylor, is a former Monsanto vice president. That partially explains why the “safe food” mandate does nothing to protect us from genetically engineered food and the harsh chemicals that are necessarily paired with it. It will, however, put many of us farmers, who are committed to fresh, healthy and sustainably grown food, out of business. We can all see the future. It is those antiseptic, theoretically bacteria-free plastic containers that will soon become the only way we will be able to shop for all of our produce. And that should be an issue of public outrage.

Dear Blair’s advice column Editor, We were very disturbed by Blair Lee’s recent column (“2014 Is About Race and Place”) about Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown launching his campaign for governor. It’s clear that rather than attending, reading and watching the speech of Brown’s announcement, Mr. Lee presented his own distorted world view as fact and resorted to what is essentially race baiting. — SEN. ROB GARAGIOLA — SEN. NANCY KING Dear Senators, I was upset when I first read your letter because I thought you might be serious. But, then, when you offered no examples of my alleged “race baiting,” I realized you were simply currying favor with the administration, the Montgomery delegation’s customary pastime in AnMY MARYLAND napolis. BLAIR LEE Actually, I watched a tape of Brown’s announcement speech and drew the same conclusions as Washington Post reporter John Wagner and Attorney General Doug Gansler — Brown’s “disparities” pitch is aimed at his fellow African-American voters. Why is telling that obvious truth “race baiting”? When political columnist Josh Kurtz recently wrote, “It’s tough being a white male in Democratic politics these days. ... Is that a real trend, something (governor) O’Malley ... and white males everywhere need to worry about at every level of Democratic politics?”, was that “race baiting”? Did you write Kurtz a nasty letter? When Rev. Jesse Jackson said this week that, “The Tea Party is the resurrection of the Confederacy” was that “race baiting”? Did you write Jackson, too? When The Baltimore Sun editorialized that Bob Ehrlich’s running mate, Mike Steele, “brings nothing to the ticket but the color of his skin,” was that “race

baiting”? Did you write the Sun? And when the Race Baiter In Chief, Barack Obama, recklessly injected race into an ongoing murder jury trial, saying, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin,” did you drop him a nasty note? Of course not. Your selective outrage is pure politics posing as righteous indignation. — BLAIR Mr. Lee, Thank you for stating the obvious in Friday’s Gazette. As I talk to those in my community, I get the impression they are fearful of uttering the word “race,” afraid they will be labeled a racist, persecuted and totally destroyed by the liberal media. — MATTHEW QUINN Mr. Quinn, Yes, I know what you mean (see above). — BLAIR Editor, I’m responding to Blair Lee’s column [“Maryland’s Environmental Austerity”], but first I would like to state that I am a scientist in the field of atmospheric sciences. I have dealt with weather and climate issues for over 30 years. Climate change is an established fact. Global warming also is an established fact. The problem with the so-called “green environmentalists” is that they would like to give credit to carbon dioxide as the cause. (But) changes in carbon dioxide amounts in the atmosphere FOLLOW changes in temperature, not the other way around. So, what are the drivers of global climate change? In order, energy output of the sun, variations of the earth’s orbit around the sun and the tilt of the earth’s axis. When the earth’s axis tilt increases to near 24 degrees, it increases the amount of solar radiation reaching the Arctic and Antarctic ice masses, along with the glaciers in between. When the earth’s orbit moves farther from the sun, cooling will increase (followed by a decrease in CO2 levels despite increased use of fossil fuels). But what about the government’s

a whole lot of stickers being issued out to these perpetrators. The world today is just relying on everything that is quick and easy — quick weight loss, hair weave, fast food, carryouts — nobody wants to put forth an effort on anything anymore. Be thankful that you can walk on your own, because when I see people that are less fortunate than myself, I give thanks to the Almighty, because that very same person who I am looking at could have very well been me.

plans to control energy production? They are based on political science, not physical science, and they will have no measurable effect on climate change. These programs tend to be wealth transfer programs. They will take wealth from all, but will have the greatest detrimental effect on the poor, who will have to pay higher costs for energy. This allows the government to raid wealthier taxpayers on the guise of helping the poor. Forcing the poor and middle class to give energy grants for systems that are too expensive amounts to a “war on the poor.” — MD CONTINENTAL Dear MD Continental, Thanks for the fascinating email, but you are ruining a perfectly good national panic attack. Don’t you realize that most scientists agree that the world is doomed? Of course, it wasn’t that many centuries ago that most scientists also agreed that the world was flat. — BLAIR Hi Blair, I just wanted to share something with you. Over the years, Kathy and I have supported certain charities which we feel really, truly help those in need. One of our favorites has been the food pantry at St. Clement Mary Hofbauer Catholic Church in Rosedale, Md. This parish does incredible things to help the poorest of the poor. Well, they just found out that the new “rain tax” is going to really hurt. Here are the figures: FY2014: sewer service, $5,115; Bay restoration, $720; stormwater fee, $1,691. Total: $7,526. This $5,366 increase will hurt a lot of people in real need. — TOM BALDWIN Tom, Tough luck. Reducing Bay pollution is our top priority no matter how much it costs or how many people it hurts. Consider yourself lucky that we don’t shut down your impervious surfaced church and turn it into a rain garden. Stop being so selfish and get with the program. — BLAIR

Which is stronger in football, the Prince George’s County 4A League or 3A/2A/1A League? When asked that question, Henry A. Wise High School coach DaLawn Parrish paused and then broke out laughing. “Of course, I’m going to be biased, because I’m in the 4A League,” Parrish said. “So, I’m going to say the 4A League. “On paper, I don’t think it’s close. But again, you wouldn’t know until you play.” Then, Parrish resisted further inquiries into the difference between the leagues. “No coach wants to say something where they can put it on their bulletin board,” he said.

Roosevelt begins rebuilding process Girls’ volleyball: Starting with a new gym, Raiders hope to defend county title TRAVIS MEWHIRTER

Parrish is concerned because his team plays Frederick Douglass, a 2A team at 7:30 p.m. Saturday as part of the Prince George’s Pigskins Classic, an event that also pits 4A Eleanor Roosevelt against 2A Gwynn Park (7:30 p.m. Friday) and 4A Suitland against 2A Potomac (4:30 p.m. Saturday). The opening weekend of high school football also features 4A Bladensburg at 2A Largo, 1A Central at 4A High Point, 2A Friendly at 4A Parkdale and 4A Laurel at 1A Surrattsville. Since Prince George’s County allowed for more flexibility in non-conference scheduling two years ago, 4A teams have played 3A/2A/1A teams to a 2-2 draw. In 2012, 6-5 Flowers beat 7-4 Largo and 3-7 Crossland beat 0-10 Parkdale. In 2011, 9-4 Flowers beat 3-7 Largo and 4-6 Crossland beat 2-8 Parkdale.

Eileen Lloyd and the Eleanor Roosevelt High School girls’ volleyball team received quite a “treat” this year — and by “treat,” Lloyd means acquiring the most fundamental piece of volleyball equipment there is: a gymnasium. Last season, the Raiders were swept in three sets in the state semifinals by Arundel after a 17-0 regular season. Roosevelt achieved all of its success without a single home match, save for a few in the postseason. They practiced occasionally at High Point and Parkdale before finally settling in at Greenbelt Middle, where the nets sagged and the lights were dim. Now, with the renovations to Roosevelt completed, the Raiders finally have a place to call home. “That certainly has been a treat,” Lloyd said of not having to travel for every game and practice. “Not having to get on a bus everyday and unload equipment. That’ll be a switch. Some of them on

Bowie High School junior forward Anna Huddelston tallied 22 goals and 10 assists for the Class 4A South Region champion Bulldogs last fall and wasn’t even the team’s leading scorer. Though Bowie lost a bit of its scoring power from last year’s fourth region title run in five years, Huddelston’s ability to find the net — and she will take on a more prominent scoring role in 2013 — leaves this fall’s squad that lost eight seniors in good hands. Coach Aaron Hankey said he is confident in a talented young crop of players coming in to build around Huddelston and a good core of six returning starters, which includes talented goalkeeper Ellen Anderson, to help the Bulldogs defend last year’s region title. Bowie typically implements some possession style soccer and traditionally thrives off its ability to connect passes and move the ball forward efficiently

The 2013 graduating class at DeMatha Catholic High School never lost a soccer match in four years — that is if one considers the final game they played a draw, with Gonzaga besting the Stags in penalty kicks last November to win the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title. That’s quite the remarkable feat: 62 matches and not a single loss, never on the wrong side of PKs until their last match. That presents a daunting task for this year’s seniors as they attempt to step into the leadership roles of what was one of the more dominant classes of soccer players to ever play for coach Dafydd Evans. DeMatha will be led by three senior captains, goalkeeper Brendan Burke (a three-year starter), center back A.J. Read and fullback Joseph Conti. Senior forwards Julian Dove and Arion Sobers-Assue

Continued from Page A-11 this year’s team never played in the gym before. It’s been nice.” It removes one step for Lloyd in the rebuilding process after she lost all but three players from last year’s 4A South Region championship team, including Player of the Year Meya Ngundam, an outside hitter who averaged 2.1 kills per set. Returning for Lloyd and the Raiders, is first-team All-Gazette junior outside hitter Kristin Watson, who will help ease the transition of filling in for Ngundam. “She’s been an integral part of our team since she came in as a freshman,” Lloyd said of Watson. “We’re totally starting from scratch so everything is in flux right now.” Currently in flux are even the positions of some of her players. Lloyd couldn’t pin down a spot she wanted to stick Amidat Sonekan and was hesitant to label Alesia Richardson as a middle hitter, but as she would point out, it’s very early, and her team is very young. “We lost a lot of seniors last year so we’re certainly rebuilding,” she said. Others currently amidst the rebuilding process are Largo


Continued from Page A-11 and it will be important for the new pieces to mesh quickly, Hankey said. That’s what the preseason and early schedule will revolve around. “I think we’ll still do well,” Hankey said. “We’re building, we just need time to get together as a team to distribute passes and work together. That’s what we do and it’s coming together.” The 3A/2A/1A League team most like to reach the county championship game is Frederick Douglass. After opening its 2012 regular season series against rival Gwynn Park with a dismal 9-1 loss, Douglass defeated the 2011 county runnerup Yellow Jackets the second time around to share in the division title. While perennial 2A power Gwynn Park lost the majority of its starting lineup — senior playmaker Tashina Cardwell will be back to control the middle — Douglass returns most of its playmakers. Among them is two-time leading scorer and junior forward Kianna Hart (21 goals). Senior Troiah McCorkle will drop back from the team’s front line to lead the defense and control the game from the back alongside classmate Domonique Thompson, first-year coach Sarah Chapman said. Senior Alex Desmones will act as a major connector in the midfield. The team most likely to prevent Bowie’s region title defense is rival Eleanor Roosevelt. The only blemish on Bowie’s region tournament record since 2008 was a close loss to the Raiders in 2011. As always, the historic rivals will top the list of the


Continued from Page A-11 will attempt to replace the creativity and playmaking abilities of Chris Odoi-Atsem, who is underway in his freshman season at the University of Maryland, College Park while junior Keegan Meyer will challenge Burke for minutes in goal. “The seniors, obviously, they need to figure that out quite quickly their role leading this team,” Evans said. “When you have played under a significant senior class like the one that graduated, it will take some time to realize they’re not there.” Gonzaga again figures to challenge DeMatha every step of the way, while Our Lady of Good Counsel, Bishop O’Connell and Paul VI all could be in the mix for a title. The Purple Eagles and DeMatha are scheduled to play at 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 17 at Heurich Field in Hyattsville. “I’d say we’re reasonably well-balanced across the board,” Evans said. “Talent at the back and the midfield with options up front. We’re reasonably deep in most areas and this year, more than any, it will have to be a complete effort. We hope they’ll all progress in a uniform fashion and all push each other to a better level.” Among Prince George’s County public schools, meanwhile, the field appears to be wide open. With a number of competitive schools losing tal-

and Surrattsville, which returns just two players from last year’s varsity team and is operating under new coach Jeff Williams. He voiced his excitement over a junior trio in setter Vanessa Pollard, Alexis Smith, and Faith Taylor. “We have something to build on so we’re just teaching the girls and they have a large learning curve,” he said. “I have a couple of girls I think could move onto the next level. It’s been a smooth transition since most of the players were on [junior varsity] last year.” Largo, meanwhile, brings back four, a slight increase from Roosevelt and Surrattsville, but not by much. “We’re slowly but surely making process,” Largo coach James Jackson said, before adding the line that seems to be the theme of the county this year. “We’re pretty young.” Lloyd said she expects the usual suspects — Bowie, Charles H. Flowers, High Point and Parkdale — to be back somewhere around the top, especially the Panthers, who return eight players from last year. At the moment, though, she’s just happy to have a gym. county’s Class 4A contenders. The Raiders will have to deal with their own list of graduation casualties as well as a firstyear coach, but Roosevelt is a traditionally skilled team that perennially boasts some of the county’s top talent. The team most likely to test the top teams is Henry A. Wise, which played several games in 2012, including its region quarterfinal loss to Parkdale, down a player. Current second-year coach Nydia Velando had only 11 on the roster and the Pumas struggled to fill the scoring void left behind by the graduation of the program’s all-time leading scorer Christen Blair, who become the first female athlete from Wise to accept an NCAA Division I scholarship (Southern University in Baton Rouge, La.) in May 2012. Still Wise managed a 7-4 record. This year the Pumas’ roster increased to 19 athletes and that includes six returning seniors. Among them is last year’s leading scorer Sydney Mitchell (17), Kayla Truesdel in the midfield and sweeper Ebone Baker. Velando said Wise’s biggest strength is its camaraderie since learning to play together postBlair. The best team no one talks about is Forestville, which returns seven starters from a 9-2-1 team, including leading scorer Tierra Hawkins (16). Hawkins can push forward comfortably knowing that the defense will hold with returners Asia Butler and goalkeeper Layah Mannigan supporting the backline. The team that lost the most is Charles H. Flowers. One year removed from its first region final in a long while, Flower will have to reload in 2013.

Continued from Page A-11 But the leagues haven’t matched up in a schedule like this before, both sides in clear contrast and seeking any extra motivation. Parrish need not worry much. Many 3A/2A/1A coaches agreed that the larger schools have an advantage, though one disagreed on the record. The Gazette asked the county’s 22 public-school coaches which league is stronger, and 16 responded. Overall: 11 chose 4A, one chose 3A/2A/1A, four abstained. Of the 4A coaches: Seven chose 4A, none chose 3A/2A/1A, zero abstained. Of the 3A/2A/1A coaches: Four chose 4A, one chose 3A/2A/1A, four abstained. Perhaps that poll wasn’t

ented players — Northwestern (Jose Ceballo, Samuel Kahsai), High Point (Edwin Claros, Albert Granados), Bowie (Moises Lazo, Brady Mazzei) — a new crop of playmakers must fill the void. Northwestern, last year’s 4A South Region champions, should be strong once again, but only if many newcomers to Nigel Trim’s club are able to adjust quickly to the team’s style of play. “I was honest with them, I said that based on what last year’s team did, everyone’s going to want to throw you guys under the bus,” said Trim, who returns four starters, including captain Elfried Sarabria. “They don’t differentiate between this year’s Northwestern and last year’s Northwestern.” And while it’s true Northwestern may be the club with the most recent target on its back, Bowie and Eleanor Roosevelt have long been the 4A powerhouses. Bowie coach Richard Kirkland will enter his 25th season at the helm two seasons removed from a state championship while Roosevelt coach George Kallas said renewed depth could help his club greatly this season. In the 2A ranks, Gwynn Park, Frederick Douglass, Largo and Friendly all will likely be on equal footing as the season rolls on while Forestville and Central figure to stand out among the county’s 1A teams.

Frederick Douglass coach J.C. Pinkney, Gwynn Park coach Danny Hayes and Friendly coach Peter Quaweay — who oversee 3A/2A/1A’s highestranked teams — were among the abstainers. “The stronger teams in the 3A/2A/1A don’t have a problem playing a 4A,” said Potomac coach Ronnie Crump, who cast the only vote for the 3A/2A/1A. “You can come to our meetings and find that out.” Said Parrish: “We have a tight coaches’ association, so I know everybody in there is competitive, and you want to say your league is better.” For the 4A, the advantage is simple.

of potential players from which to pick. Many 3A/2A/1A coaches say that the 11 players on the field, not the population of their schools, matter. A couple cited Douglass, a 3A/2A/1A team that spent the 2005 season in the 4A. That team went 12-0 against its county 4A competitors and beat them by an average score of 36-6, including a pair of playoff wins to win the region. Pinkney said his 2005 team was the most talented he ever had, perhaps not making it the best example of 3A/2A/1A superiority. “It would be premature for me to assume that it would be like that no matter what year we were up in the 4A or so on,” Pinkney said. “I just think, that year, we had a lot of good things going for us.”

Still, Pinkney said many doubted his team’s ability to competeintheupperleague,and he relished proving them wrong. So did Crump. “There’s this theory out here in the county that because you’re a bigger school, you think you can beat a smaller school,” Crump said. “I don’t think that’s true in this area. I think that’s true somewhere else in most cases, but in this case, in this county, I don’t think that’s true.” Parrish and Crump said they were rooting for their league to win the other games of the Pigskin Classic besides their own. Pinkney said, on one hand, he’d root for league-mates Potomac and Gwynn Park. On the other hand, Douglass is competing with those teams for playoff berths.

A date with dinos n

Art, music and science blend into one BY


Puppeteer Jim West and two of his friends converse during West’s show, “Dinosaurs,” coming on Sept. 12 to the Publick Playhouse in Cheverly. During the performance, West also shows children how to make dinosaur puppets. JEAN MARIE GUYAUX

Children who like to play with dinosaurs can learn to make their own by watching puppeteer Jim West. West is bringing his “Dinosaurs” show from New York to the Publick Playhouse in Cheverly for two morning performances on Sept. 12. “We show them how to do it using art, music and a short story line,” said West. A puppeteer for more than 20 years, West developed and performed the shadow puppets for the Metropolitan Opera’s production of “Manon” by Jules Massenet. He and puppeteer Marshall Izen also wrote “The Dog Who Sang at the Opera,” a true story about a dog in the cast of “Manon” who unexpectedly decided to sing along with one of the arias. In his “Dinosaurs” show, recommended for ages 4 through 12, West shows kids how to make puppets, something, he says, that sets him apart from other shows. Also different is the accompanying classical

music by the likes of Mahler, Prokofiev, Strauss and Stravinsky. “We try to be unique and entertaining,” West said. Hosting the show is Fossil, a little blue dinosaur who chats with West about dinosaur facts and his own identity as a dinosaur. Taking into account the sometimes short attention spans of young fans, West splits the show into four parts highlighting four different dinosaurs. In one section, West creates a Tyrannosaurus rex out of a cardboard box accompanied by music from Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition.”

West joked that sometimes the on-stage building project falls apart. “You hope the Velcro holds,” he said, laughing. If it doesn’t, such interruptions become teachable moments about the value of persisting despite obstacles, he said. In another section, West uses a shadow puppet behind a screen to tell the story of the rehabilitated public image of the oviraptor — a big dinosaur with a beak that looked like “a giant chicken,” he said. Scientists once believed that all dinosaurs were related to lizards and considered the oviraptor a predator and an “egg thief” that robbed nests of their treasures. But today, scientists think that dinosaurs preceded birds and that oviraptors were actually quite family minded. “They were very domestic,” said West. “They sat on their own nests.” Scientific conclusions

aren’t set in stone, and science is really more about making “educated guesses,” he said. “We don’t really know how [dinosaurs] used their tail or horns – the scientists weren’t there,” said West. Also part of the show is a rod-puppet scene about a little plant-eating brachiosaurus with a long neck who encounters a big sleeping dinosaur and gets into a bit of trouble. Then it’s back to building for the finale, with Mahler’s First Symphony in the background. This time, the task is to assemble an apatosaurus, another big plant eater that some people also call a brontosaurus. West starts with a grocery store bag for a head, then adds eyes and a long neck, a body and a tail, ending up with a creature six feet long on stage. “They see all the bits come together,” West said.

Eat, drink and be merry! Music for the ears, food and drink for the palate





The Washington, D.C., band Black Alley will perform at the Taste Prince George’s Food and Wine Festival on Saturday at Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro. From left are Eric (lead guitar), Hope (keys), Kacey (lead vocalist), Josh (bass), Mack (keys), Animal (drums) and Bo Beedy (percussion).

A lot of the 30-somethings in Prince George’s County have money to spend on food, drink and entertainment, but many journey into Washington, D.C., to enjoy a night out instead of looking closer to home. “Prince George’s is a very vibrant ‘foodie’ county,” said Quianne Perrin of Largo, who owns a marketing agency and also is a member of the Prince George’s County Chamber of Commerce. A self-described “foodie” herself, Perrin worked with restaurants, officials and a host



of entertainers to organize the Taste Prince George’s Food and Wine Festival on Saturday at the Six Flags theme park in Upper Marlboro. Performers scheduled to appear include R&B singer Reesa Renee, rock-techno group Bonnie Rash, the female group Bela Dona, jazz keyboardist Marcus Johnson, gospel groups Soul Messengerz and 7 Sons of Soul, and Black Alley, a Washington, D.C., group eager to meet new fans in the county. “We’re very excited to be part of this event,” said Josh Hartzog, who plays bass guitar for Black Alley. For $25 per person in advance, visitors have access to rides and parking at Six Flags, as well as access to the Gotham City section of the park, where restaurants and wineries will offer tastings for $3 each. Participating wine organizations include Flo Wines, Romano and Port of Leonardtown. There will also be a Cocktail Concoction Lounge, offering specialty cocktails, hookahs and hand-rolled cigars, along with cooking demonstrations by local chefs featuring celebrity couples and competitive eating challenges. “This is a way to create some exposure for the restaurant community in the county,” said Craig Muckle, public affairs manager for Safeway and also a member of the chamber. “There’s a clientele that wants to be served and needs to be served.” Also participating will be more than dozen entertainers on several stages. “It’s a chance for local artists to really shine on a larger platform,” Perrin said. Black Alley’s bass guitarist Josh Hartzog, known as Josh on Bass, described the band’s music as “soul garage,” an allusion to a garage as a place full of different things. “We infuse rock with hiphop, with funk, with soul and touch of go-go,” he said. “We’ve got R&B, jazz, calypso — everything.” “Basically we release emotion,” said Hartzog. “If you’ve had a bad day, you can dance it out, or if you’re happy, you can celebrate.” Formed five years ago, Black Alley has released three CDs,

R&B singer Reesa Renee will perform at the Taste Prince George’s Food and Wine Festival on Saturday at Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro. The event is to let local “foodies” who spend their money in Washington, D.C., know that there are also good restaurants closer to home in Prince George’s County.

TASTE PRINCE GEORGE’S n When: Noon to 7 p.m. Saturday (rain or shine) n Where: Six Flags, 13710 Central Ave., Upper Marlboro n Tickets: $25 per person advance discounted tickets. $3 per food and drink tastings. n For information:,

“Soul, Swagger, Rock, Sneakers;” a live version of the album, “Live from the RNR Hotel,” recorded at the Rock & Roll Hotel on H Street in the District; and “Recycle Bin,” a CD of fan favorites. “We care about our fans,” Hartzog said. “We love them and think about them.” A Richmond native, Hartzog, 27, said he started playing the drums as a boy in church and later switched to bass guitar. He said he

wants to perform for the rest of his life like Chuck Brown did. The band was lucky enough to spend time with Brown on his last birthday. Known as the “Godfather of Go-go,” he died in May 2012 at age 75. “He inspired me so much,” Hartzog said. “He actually did this [playing and performing] until the day he died. Hartzog said the band performs regularly in Washington, D.C., on Thursdays and Fridays and has also traveled out of the region to Boston and other cities around the country. The next step is to become known around the country and one way to do that would be to audition for “America’s Got Talent,” something the band is considering, he said. “We want to take the soul garage movement nationwide,” said Hartzog, adding that everyone in the band is on the same page. “We see the goal — we’re this close to it,” he said.

Time to boogie Popular artist to play songs from new CD


JOSEPH ARTHUR n When: 8 p.m. Friday


n Where: Montpelier Arts Center, 6600 Kenilworth Ave., Riverdale


Musician Joseph Arthur is a man of many talents. A poet and a painter, he uses his artwork throughout each of his album covers. As a poet, he uses his words to create a wide array of music. Something must be going right for Arthur. He was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Packaging for his 1999 album “Vacancy.” His songs have been used in hit TV shows such as “Scrubs,” “True Blood,” “House,” and “The L Word,” and in the movies “Shrek 2,” “The Bourne Identity,” “American Pie 3,” and “Shallow Hal.” The multi-talented performer will be showcasing his abilities at 8 p.m. on Friday at the Montpelier Arts Center. Arthur will play songs off his new album, “The Ballad of Boogie Christ.” Putting together “Boogie Christ” was a little different for Arthur. This time around, he went with crowdfunding PledgeMusic — an online direct-to-fan music platform — to support the project. “I had been resisting using crowdsourcing and crowd-

Kind of announcing it, in a way. Sort of a marketing avenue as well as a way to raise funds.” Arthur said what appealed to him the most was the fact that contributors were given items in return for their donations. “It’s not just asking for

money,” Arthur said. “You’re basically selling stuff. It became a creative endeavor of getting incentives together. Through the Pledge campaign, we launched a live album, we launched a poetry book, we launched a DVD, we sold paintings. I mean, it became, in and of itself, a really creative endeavor.” The idea behind “Boogie Christ” was something Arthur had for a while. “I wrote this poem called ‘The

Ballad of Boogie Christ,’ and I thought that was a pretty interesting character,” Arthur said. “The ideajustkindofhitmeaboutaguy who’s on a spiritual journey who’s caught between enlightenment and insanity. I just thought it was fertile, creative ground for spinning a bunch of yarns, aka songs.” Arthur said he had a lot of poems sitting around, so he decided to make this a poetrybased album. “[I thought] let’s make this a

sort of words-first album,” Arthur said. “The songs sort of became the way to serve the words.” In the pipeline is a second albumto“BoogieChrist,”whichwill be out in the United States and Canada on Nov. 29. There is a part three, but Arthur isn’t in a rush to push that one out the door. “There is a part three, but I just don’t know if I want to go right in to releasing it or if I want to move on and do something else for a little while,” Arthur

then became Summit Station, and finally Growlers. It has been under new management since February 2011. Growlers is at 227 East Diamond Avenue, located in the historic John A. Belt Building which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. As one enters the brewpub there is a long bar on the left side with 12 beer taps, with the remaining first floor space allocated to restaurant seating. There also are a mezzanine with seating for twenty, an upstairs room with a separate bar and additional dining tables plus an outside balcony for seasonal dining or smoking. The upstairs also features entertainment Wednesdays through Saturdays. Happy hours are 4 p.m.-7 p.m. each day and all Thursday. Total seating is about 120. Growler’s menu carries 10 appetizers, with salads, pizza, numerous special sandwiches, and a variety of entrees, including, but not limited to, cajun rigatoni, steak frites, grilled salmon or chicken, and slow roasted prime rib. New brewer Eric Gleason was the assistant brewer for two years before assuming the brewing reins. Growlers beers include six standards: Kingpin Kolsch, Trainwreck IPA, Seneca Pale Ale, Alleyway Amber, Yorkshire Porter, and Broken Shovel Stout. In addition there is a rotation of six to seven beers from a broad range of interesting and creative seasonal beers. These seasonal beers include Sergeant Schultz Rauchbier, Chopped Tank Oyster Stout, Franque et Tanque Tripel, Saison du Jasmine and some beers aged in bourbon barrels. The best selling beers, in order, are Trainwreck IPA, followed by Kingpin Kolsch, Seneca Pale Ale and Alleyway Amber. Not surprisingly, the beers are available to take out in growlers. A pilot brewery was installed in 2011 to experiment with styles and make “no holds barred” unusual beers. Brewer Gleason describes it as “the place where all those crazy what if questions get answered. like, ‘What does a 100% wheat stout taste like?’ Or, ‘Can you brew a beer that tastes like Thai food?’” These often are on tap one or two at a time and listed on the chalkboard above the bar.

I have something done, but I might let it sit for a minute and maybe revisit it 10 years down the road or something.” Whereas Arthur is a man of many talents, he does want fans and audio lovers in general to know that his heart will always belong to music. “My whole life has been rooted around music,” Arthur said. “The friends I have, the relationships I’ve made, have all come from music. I don’t really know anything else. … I wouldn’t want to really live any other way than to live how I’ve lived. It’s been a really incredible journey.”

Actress Debbi Morgan chats about one-woman show, ‘The Monkey on My Back’ n

Emmy Award-winner coming to Publick Playhouse BY


Best known for her role as Dr. Angie Hubbard on the ABC soap opera “All My Children,” actress Debbi Morgan is now working on her latest project, a one-woman show based on her soonto-be released personal memoir, “The Monkey on My Back.” The show, which debuted at Ashford & Simpsons Sugar Bar in New York City on July 19, reveals Morgan’s struggle with a cycle of fear and abuse affecting three generations of the women in her family. Here, she talks to A&E about her struggle to write the memoir and the return of “All My Children.” A&E: How did the concept for “The Monkey on My Back” first come about?

Morgan: It’s based on my personal memoir, which is going through editing now. Hopefully we’ll get a publishing deal by the end of the year. I started writing the book 7 to 10 years ago. I would write and then I would put it away and I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to do it or if I should do it. A&E: Why were you hesitant?

Morgan: I hadn’t really come fullcircle at that time. I ended up going to therapy and I had to do a lot of work on myself ... I wanted people to continue to think I was someone who always had it all together and I just didn’t know if I was really ready to let people know ... that just wasn’t necessarily the case. A&E: What finally convinced you to finish the book?

Morgan: I realized it was something that was going to be so cathartic for me and after going to therapy and doing a lot of work on myself, I realized that I needed to get out that last bit of residue because it was like the final release of all that toxicity.

A&E: And how did the memoir evolve into the one-woman show?

Morgan: I did a speaking engagement for this organization called Girls

gosh, you’ve been acting for years and you’re a wonderful actor, why would you be afraid?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, but I have a script and it’s pretend, so that’s easy. This is all about me.’ I’m not used to being on stage all alone. All of the responsibility is on me to make sure I keep the connection with the audience and keep them involved and hopefully no one’s sitting there looking at their watch, going, ‘When is this going to be over?’

“THE MONKEY ON MY BACK” WITH DEBBI MORGAN n When: 8 p.m. Saturday n Where: 5445 Landover Road, Cheverly n Tickets: $30-45 n For information: 301-277-1710,

Inc. down in Hampton, Va., last year. And it was about bullying, which is also a part of my memoir ... At the end of the speaking engagement, this woman came up to me and ... her eyes just welled up with tears. She said, ‘I have two teenage girls and, for years, they’ve been watching their father beat me and physically abuse me and, after listening to you tonight, that’s it. I see what damage I’m doing to my girls, not just to myself but to my girls. And that’s it, I’m leaving.’ And it was at that point that I decided I also wanted to do it as a one woman show. A&E: You’ve performed the show twice now for a live audience, first at Ashford & Simpsons Sugar Bar in New York and then again at the National Black Theatre Festival in Winston Salem, N.C. What have been the biggest adjustments you’ve had to make in taking the story from the book to the stage?

Morgan: The biggest difference, being an actress, I’m very descriptive in my writing ... my writing is very lyrical and it has a flow to it. And the difference between that and doing a stage performance is that I’m not reading a piece, it’s like I’m talking to my audience members ... A lot of things that I have in the book, even though I love them, I had to change because I write in a very poetic fashion.

A&E: You’ve made a career out of playing other people, but what is it like to get up on stage and have to be yourself?

Morgan: It was very scary. The first night I was at the Sugar Bar I was terrified. And everybody was like, ‘Oh, my

A&E: Were you nervous about exposing such personal and painful details about your past?

Morgan: It was very intimidating because I reveal a lot and I really expose myself. But I remember my director said one day during rehearsal she could feel me holding back, and she said to me, ‘Debbi, if you’re going to tell this, I mean if you’re really going to tell your story, you’re going to have to stick your butt out the window and pull your pants down. Or else there’s really no point of you telling it.’

A&E: It’s been almost two years since “All My Children” went off the air, but in April, the show returned in an online format. What has it been like to go back to being Dr. Angie Hubbard?

Morgan: I felt, on a personal level — I mean, the character is so close to my heart. I’ve been afforded the opportunity to do a lot of things outside of “All My Children” and playing Angie, but it was like stepping back into an old pair of slippers. It was like it was just yesterday. It was wonderful to be able to make so many fans happy who had felt slighted you know, by the show being taken off the air ... A show like that was generational. [People] would come home and their grandmother was watching it, then their mother and then they were watching it. It was so wonderful that their outcry was finally heard and they finally got their show back.

A&E: What’s the biggest difference in shooting a show for online versus TV?

Morgan: I actually like doing this online version even more than when we were on television because it just allows us to have so much more creativity ... We have a lot more freedom. We’re

I probably wouldn’t even have time to be touring and doing my show if we were still on television ... It’s kind of nice to be involved in something that is ground-

breaking and for it to be a success and for us to be a part of the first time doing this is wonderful.


Sofia’s choice in ‘Getaway’ BY




“Getaway” will never be mistaken for a “Fast & Furious” sequel. It’s more like “Taken … for a Ride!” Terrible but, in its squealing way, sporadically fun-terrible, it features a glowering Ethan Hawke as a former professional race car driver named Brent Magna … or Brock Magma … or Frack Slaterock … or something like that. Let’s call him Magma. Magma and his wife (Rebecca Budig, seen mostly in black-and-white, those-werethe-days flashbacks) live in

GETAWAY n 1 1/2 stars n PG-13; 94 minutes n Cast: Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez, Jon Voight n Directed by Courtney Solomon

Sofia, Bulgaria, allowing the producers to film in a city willing to let visitors mess up traffic for a spell. Mrs. Magma is abducted on Christmas and held in a warehouse, so that a criminal mastermind listed in the film’s credits as The Voice (Jon Voight, more or less German this time) can blackmail Hawke’s character into “a series of tasks” behind the wheel of a custom Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake. These include a high-speed assault on a crowded ice rink and several rounds of police pursuits and evasions. Selena Gomez takes the passenger seat. In one of the weirdest character introductions in the history of any medium, her character, the least-madcap heiress around, known only as The Kid, attempts to steal back the car belonging to her. So. You



Ethan Hawke as Brent Magna in Warner Bros. Pictures and Dark Castle Entertainment’s action thriller “Getaway.” have Magma, The Voice and The Kid. This movie is The Dumb. As steered with more enthusiasm than skill by “An American Haunting” director Courtney Solomon, the takeaway on “Getaway” goes this-a-way: Is there anything a filmmaker can’t do in Sofia, Bulgaria? With Los Angeles and environs suffering millions in lost revenue thanks to runaway film production, “Getaway” serves handily as Exhibit A. Certain shots and the most head-banging stunts on view suggest that you can happily murder all sorts of extras

if you film there. The action in “Getaway” is hacked up into messily edited bits, run through what are supposed to be a dozen different surveillance cameras recording the action inside and outside the death car. With Voight’s voice on the car’s GPS saying things like “Smash everything you can,” the movie makes its intentions clear. Hawke’s character spends most of the film not knowing why The Voice is making him do the things he does. Magma and The Kid trade cross-generational barbs (“Stop almost killing us!” she whines at one point) and develop a grudging mutual respect, although if you look up the word “chemistry” in the dictionary, you won’t find a picture of these two actors together. The repeated close-ups of Hawke’s foot slamming the clutch are more expressive. The movie requires little acting; it requires screeching — of tires. I will say this: It’s perversely satisfying to see the Bulgarian capital roughed up by a movie crew in this way, even by second-raters. And near the end there’s an extended shot, taken with a car-mounted camera, reminding audiences of the gut-level pleasures of high velocity. The rest of “Getaway,” which many in the audience seemed to genuinely hate based on comments on the way out, is so mechanical and derivative, not even the abducted-spouse routine can stoke the audience’s rooting interests. Still, I confess: After the screening, I drove my Honda Fit home like a maniac.

Heritage Signature Chorale in the five-movement piece, featuring narration from special guests saye Barnwell, Dion Graham, Scot Reese and activist and artist Harry Belafonte. “I feel very, very fortunate to have known and have worked with Mr. Belafonte a number of times over the last 18 years,” McBride said. “The fact that he agreed to do this, is just hard to fathom ... You talk about the movement revisited, he’s one of the last people from the movement. He is the movement. So he brings some authenticity that I think will make a tremendous impact ...” McBride wrote “The Movement Revisited” in 1998 after he was commissioned by the Portland Art Society to write a piece for Black History Month. The original composition featured four movements or chapters based on four major players in the Civil Rights Era: Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali. McBride since has added a fifth movement to commemorate the election of President Barack Obama. “It’s not written for Barack Obama, the man,” McBride said. “It’s written for the events during the Civil Rights Movement that made it possible for a

black man to be president of the United States.” The sound and rhythm of each movement or chapter is meant to reflect the nature of each influential figure. For example, McBride said he tried to capture the “quiet sophistication and soft-spokenness” of Rosa Parks. “Malcolm X ... his words carry so much weight, I try to capture that in his movement,” McBride said. “And Muhammad Ali ... he’s brash, loud, exciting, but all of his brashness and loudness meant something. Underneath all of that volume was a very wise soul.” King’s movement is actually divided into two parts: “Soldiers” and “A View from the

Mountaintop.” “‘Soldiers,’ I guess it’s a play on the March on Washington or all of the different marches he coordinated and led ...” McBride said. “The second part is ‘A View from the Mountaintop” and I try to capture the feel of his final speech ...” McBride said he is honored by the university’s request to play “The Movement Revisited” as a part of the symposium. “I don’t get to perform that piece very often because it’s pretty large with the Big Band and the choir and the narrator,” McBride said. “When someone requests it, they automatically go on my “I love” list.”

“And the March Continues.” The conversation, facilitated by Truman scholar and fellow University of Maryland student Mohammad Zia, focuses on the new era of civil rights activism. “There are so many issues that are going on today in society ... it may not be being called an inflammatory name to your face or being in a situation where you couldn’t drink out of a certain fountain, but there’s definitely a lot of problems that exist in the African American community and here in America,” Mulinge said. “ ... We live in a bubble being at a state university and doing our thing in college we forget that there are still a lot of people in our community that are still victims to the institutionalized systems that oppress us.” Mulinge, a Montgomery County native and graduate of Clarksburg High School, is the co-president of Community Roots, a student activist group dedicated to promoting social change. “What Maryland prides itself on is its diversity,” Mulinge said. “So we take that to our advantage and we use our different cultures, backgrounds and beliefs in order to promote social change and social action ...” “And the March Continues” will examine the younger generation’s dealings with issues of race and how the Civil Rights era has affected them. “The Civil Rights era has had a huge impact on me personally and academically,” Mulinge said. “My supporting sequence is in African American studies.
