Ethics chief hire to help build agency

The last dog days of summer


Former lawyer says employee education is essential in addressing complaints BY


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

Longtime Laurel celebration sees return of traditions n Church ministry brings back parade, vendors to re-energize Emancipation Day event BY JAMIE

Candidates clash on progress in Bladensburg n


Three of four seats to go uncontested in upcoming Oct. 7 election





Bernice Brooks, 92, remembers when the Laurel Emancipation Day celebration drew crowds from throughout the region and lasted all weekend. “People would come in from all over, in their horse and buggies, on Friday. They had a ball game, live music all day in the park [and] the parade,” Brooks said. “Everyone looked forward to this special time of year.” Laurel Emancipation Day, held annually the first weekend in September, commemorates Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation on Jan. 1, 1863, and the abolishment of slavery in Maryland on Nov. 1, 1864. Originally, the event was put on by AfricanAmerican fraternal orders of the community, but

Selwyn “Donnie” Bridgeman said crime and taxes are scaring people away from Bladensburg, and the three-year resident wants to address those issues as mayor. “We should be growing, we should be prospering,” Bridgeman said. Bridgeman, a mortgage banker, is running against four-term incumbent Mayor Walter Lee James Jr. in the Oct. 7 election. Bladensburg’s crime declined from 2003 to 2009 and has remained at around 600. In 2012, Bladensburg had the fourth most reported offenses — 562 — in Prince George’s County, according to Maryland’s Uniform Crime Report.


Parents group pushes for Spanish immersion program in schools Supporters say there’s interest, need for option




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.



Changing schools can sometimes be a difficult process for student-athletes.


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,, 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 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-ado-

lescence 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 Applied Linguistics. Montgomery County and Washington, D.C., public schools both offer Spanish immersion programs; French

Laurel Historical Society hosts picnic tied to Civil War exhibit The Laurel Historical Society will kick off its fall season with a potluck picnic today on the Laurel Museum grounds at 817 Main St. The Laurel Museum’s current exhibition, “Stationed in Laurel: Our Civil War Story,” runs through December. A concert, originally planned to take place along with the picnic has been cancelled due to illness, Karen Lubieniecki, LHS board member, said in an email. Visitors are encouraged to bring picnic items and enjoy them on the museum lawn, said Lindsey Baker, LHS executive director. Details on what to bring for the picnic can be found on the LHS website. Chicken and hot dogs will be provided. In the event of rain, the picnic will be held next door at the Laurel Municipal Pool building. For more information, visit the LHS website at

One of those tested, Gilbert said, was a 13-year-old concerned they might have contracted HIV by sharing a drinking cup with someone who was HIV positive. “You can’t get HIV just from sharing a cup,” noted Gilbert. “Clearly we’re not doing enough to get the word out about how HIV is transmitted.”

Cleanup deadline nears

Mount Rainier hosts rescheduled National Night Out Mount Rainier is hosting its postponed National Night Out starting at 5 p.m. on Sept. 27 at the Mount Rainier Nature/Recreation Center, 4701 31st Place. Mount Rainier Police Chief Michael Scott said about 500 people attended National Night Out in 2012 and he expects a similar turnout this year. The event will feature a moon bounce, basketball and face painter “Chubbzy the Clown.” “We always throw a good party in the city of Mount Rainier,” Scott said. The event promotes crime-prevention efforts and collaboration between police and residents. Scott said While typically scheduled for the first Tuesday in August, the city postponed the event because of rain. Scott said police officers from other municipalities will be available to join Mount Rainier since they already held their National Night Out events in August. “We like our residents to see that the Mount Rainier police aren’t the only assets out there,” Scott said.

Tour the Greenbelt gardens this Sunday Greenbelt Homes Inc. and the Greenbelt Gardeners Yahoo Group are hosting a free Greenbelt Garden Tour from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Seventeen Greenbelt gardens will be open to the tour; 15 are townhouse gardens in Old Greenbelt and two overlook Greenbelt Lake. The tour is self-guided, and can be started anywhere, according to the tour’s website. The theme of the garden tour is “Less Lawn, More Life,” said Susan Harris, one of the event organizers.



Wendis Caballero and son, Gerardo Lemus, 3, of Mount Rainier create “all about me books” during a family craft at the Jewel Box art gallery Creative Saturdays event Saturday in Hyattsville. Harris is also founder of the national Lawn Reform Coalition, a group of writers, designers and growers across the country promoting less lawn, better species of lawn and organic lawn care. “We believe this less-lawn-themed garden tour is the first of its kind outside of California, where lawn reduction is promoted by local governments,” Harris said. “The tour is also unusual in that it’s free.” All garden addresses, garden descriptions, photos and plant identifications will be available online at www., Harris said. The web site will also include a link to a custom Google map, she said. Harris said printed brochures for the tour will be available any time after 1 p.m. Sunday at the Greenbelt Museum, 10 Crescent Road.

Amateur photographer’s Cuba shoot on display in Hyattsville Photographs taken by Bowie resident Kim Holley, 58, on her trip to Cuba are on display at the Busboys and Poets in Hyattsville, Holley said. Holley, who works in information technology, traveled to Cuba in February on a nine-day people-to-people

cultural tour and has been taking photographs in her spare time for years, she said. “I’ve always wanted to go to Cuba since President [Barack] Obama opened it up and without hesitation I said, ‘I’m going!’” she said. “It was a photographer’s dream. The people, the architecture, the cars ...You feel you’re in a movie scene.” Forty of Holley’s photographs have been at Busboys and Poets since March and will be taken down on Tuesday, she said.

president and CEO of the Washington, D.C.-based Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter in an email. “It’s important to know what is normal aging and what isn’t.” For additional information, call 800-272-3900.

Groups team up for HIV testing event Largo nonprofit Heart to Hand, Inc. partnered with a Laurel realtor to sponsor the First Annual Skate Away HIV Day on Aug. 25 at the Temple Hills Skate Palace in Temple Hills. Heart to Hand is dedicated to helping individuals with HIV/AIDS. Realtor Margeau Gilbert of Bowie, one of the organizers of the event, said the event attracted 89 people who came out to get free HIV tests, which took less than 10 minutes each. “To have 89 people come out for our first event was great,” Gilbert said. “We want to get even more people out next year.” The cheek swab test for HIV is painless, private and completely confidential, said Gilbert, a realtor with Exit Right Realty. “After they were tested, they went in to skate,” Gilbert said. “Everyone

Remembering those who lost their lives

United effort helps revive vacant Riverdale Park site College Park business owner wins contest for town center space





Michael Haggerty (right) of Savage and fellow members of the Laurel Volunteer Rescue Squad climb the stairs Saturday at Gaylord National Resort during the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb at National Harbor. Participants climbed 110 stories to commemorate the emergency responders who climbed 110 stories in the World Trade Center towers before the towers collapsed in the 2001 terrorist attacks.

A long vacant Riverdale Park Town Center got a “sweet” addition with the Honey Bun Cake Factory — and more tenants may soon be joining the development, thanks to a concerted promotional effort between the developers, town and Prince George’s County officials. College Park resident Anthony McFarland’s Honey Bun Cake Factory joined the center, located near the intersection of Queensbury Road and Rhode Island Avenue, across from the Riverdale Park MARC station, after winning a Sept. 5 business competition. The goal of the contest was to fill the long vacant space with high-quality and compatible tenants, said Town Councilman Jonathan Ebbeler (Ward 1).

Ebbeler said Riverdale Park has been working with Douglas Development and Prince George’s County Councilman Eric Olson (D-Dist. 3) of College Park to fill the remaining space at the facility. Additionally, he said Riverdale Park passed legislation Aug. 26 establishing a quiet zone with the Federal Railroad Administration at the Queensbury crossing to improve sound quality for businesses at the center. Paul Millstein, vice president of the Washington, D.C.based Douglas Development, said he expects the remaining available 15,000 square feet of space to be filled by about three businesses within six months. Brendan Dowd, 29, of Riverdale Park said he would like to see a restaurant in the remaining space. “The more stuff they bring in, the better,” Dowd said. For winning the competition, McFarland, 38, gets to lease an 877-square-foot space at a discounted rate of $10 per square foot at the town center. “We want to really have an all-American country atmo-

sphere,” McFarland said. “That is what we’re targeting, and this is the perfect town for it.” Howard Ways, executive director of the Prince George’s County Redevelopment Authority, said the market rate in that area is about $20 per square foot. There were three total submissions: the cake factory, a startup bridal and tuxedo shop and a massage therapy center. “While of course we would have loved to have been flooded with many more applications, all those that applied were of high-quality and could have easily been selected as the winner,” Ebbeler said. Another new center addition, Bikram Hot Yoga Riverdale, which rented about 5,000 square feet on the second floor before the competition, is expected to open in October, Millstein said. Past businesses were hesitant to lease property in an empty facility, but the additions make the center more attractive, he said.

Stair climb honors firefighters killed in Sept. 11 tragedy Greenbelt police force’s new n

Some wear full gear while scaling 110 flights of stairs BY CHASE COOK STAFF WRITER

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 during the event. 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 received a free lunch and a picture of a firefighter that died that day, Brady said. Participants paid $25 for registration and 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. At 8:46 a.m., the time that American Airlines Flight 11 slammed into the World Trade Center, the first moment of silence was held. Many of the firefighters participating in the climb committed to climbing 110 flights of stairs in honor of the firefighters who climbed that high in the World Trade Center, Prince George’s County Chief Marc Bashoor said. Last year, Bashoor said he climbed 140 flights of stairs with his recruits and planned on doing at least 110 this year, as well. “For me, it’s pretty emotional,” Bashoor said. “These guys got up to work like it was going to be a regular day. ... They ended up losing their lives.” Some of the firefighters participating in the event wore their work gear, adding about 60 pounds of weight to the climb. 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.”

public face is a familiar one Retired officer returns to community liaison role as civilian n


A familiar face has returned to be the public face for the Greenbelt Police Department. George Mathews, 55, has returned to the role of public information officer after retiring from the department four years ago. “It’s kind of like coming home. A lot of the officers who were here when I left are still here,” Mathews said. Mathews retired in August 2009 with 23 years on the force. He spent 16 of his last 18 years as the department’s public information officer, providing media information, community relations and crime pre-

vention, while working with school DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) and Neighborhood Watch programs. Mathews found retirement didn’t suit him, however, and soon began working with the Maryland Community Crime Prevention Institute in Sykesville, providing presentations to community organizations on a wide Mathews variety of crime-prevention topics. Mathews, who lives in Odenton with his wife, Tracy, and two daughters, Taylor, 14, and Hanna, 13, said the position involved a lot of travel, which took him away from his family. When Mathews learned the Greenbelt Police Depart-

ment was looking for a civilian public information officer, he said he jumped at the chance. Greenbelt Capt. Carl Schinner, who worked with Mathews for 23 years prior to his retirement, said it is great having Mathews back. “He has great interpersonal skills, he’s a real people person,” Schinner said. “He continually reaches out to different members of the community to ensure we know what’s going on in the community as much as possible.” For his part, Mathews said he is glad to be doing what he loves best. “In this position, it’s all about relating to people. It’s about getting to know people, developing a rapport with people. It’s a people job, and I love it,” Mathews said. janfenson-comeau@

Arts program takes center stage at Northwestern High School n

Hyattsville program expands enrollment, staff BY


For Northwestern High School senior William Webb, going to class means working on flexibility, control and technique – and listening to music. The Mount Rainier resident is one of 35 dance majors enrolled in The Jim Henson Academy of Visual and Performing Arts, or VPA, — a rigorous arts program launched this school year at Northwestern High School. “Most classes you have to use your brain. In dance you can think, but also use your body to contribute,” Webb said. VPA students at the Hyattsville school can major in dance, vocal music, instrumental music, drama, visual arts and interactive media production. “I’m going to try to use this knowl-


edge and see where it takes me,” Webb said. According to the Board of Education’s 2014 operating budget, the Prince George’s County public school system allotted $1.4 million to fund the VPA at Northwestern. Prince George’s County schools spokeswoman ShaVon McConnell said the funds helped pay for additional staff, equipment and other resources. Leona Lowery, Northwestern’s VPA coordinator, said students have about three hours of classes in their major; all are bused to Northwestern an hour before school and some stay after to further pursue their studies. Northwestern’s VPA stems from the Jim Henson Academy of Arts, Media and Communications, named after Muppets creator and Northwestern alumnus Jim Henson in 2002. Truly Bennett, dance educator for the program, said additional resources allow students to explore the curriculum in greater depth. “We’re definitely focused on train-

Kalah Williams of Hyattsville, a sophomore dance major, said the classes are intense.

“I’m embracing it all. It’s just helping me become better in the future,” Williams said. Enrollment expanded from 125 to 215 students and the majority of appli-

cants were accepted into the program, Lowery said. She said the program added seven staff members to accommodate the new students and additional classes. She said the program will expand in upcoming years and accept students outside of the Northwestern’s attendance zone. Northwestern’s total enrollment remained at about 2,400 this fall, Lowery said. Northwestern and Suitland High School are the only two high schools in the Prince George’s County school system with a Visual and Performing Arts program. Maria L. Saldaña, Suitland’s VPA coordinator, said the school’s 97 VPA graduates from 2013 received a combined $7.3 million in scholarship offers. “It shows college admissions people that these are serious students, and they are dedicated,” Saldaña said.

Loss of child energizes Cheverly mother to support other families Charity run/walk raises funds for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome research n




Tanya Washington, the new principal for Parkdale High School, introduces herself during a meet-and-greet at the school on Aug. 29.

New Parkdale leader hopes to grow relationships, attendance Principal plans to encourage participation at Riverdale Park school n



Parkdale High School’s new principal Tanya Washington said she is implementing an open-door policy in an effort to get students and parents more involved this school year. “That’s the responsibility I signed up for and that’s what I plan on doing,” said Washington, 46, of Bowie. Washington said she wants to improve communication at the Riverdale Park school, particularly with the Hispanic community. About half of the school’s 2,083 students are Hispanic, according to the 2012-13 Maryland State Report Card. Washington has 17 years of experience working in Prince George’s County Public Schools, most recently serv-

ing seven years as an assistant principal at Largo High School in Upper Marlboro. Washington said she has extensive experience working with Hispanic students and parents from her six years teaching at William Wirt Middle School in Riverdale, which had a similar demographic. “Even though I don’t speak Spanish, I’m really good at building relationships,” Washington told parents at an Aug. 29 meet-and-greet. Carolyn Haggins of Greenbelt, who worked with Washington at Wirt, said communication was one of Washington’s strengths. “Her children were very responsive to her ... and if they had any questions, she answered them,” Haggins said. Maritza Leiva of Riverdale, a Parkdale parent, said the school has not effectively reached out to the Hispanic parents in the past and their voices were not being heard. Leiva said students often

skip classes. “It’s sad because they are the future,” Leiva said. “They don’t have hope.” According to the Maryland State Department of Education, Parkdale’s attendance rate was 91.6 percent, below the state satisfactory standard of 94 percent. Washington said improving attendance is one of her top priorities. She said she wants to encourage participation in extracurricular activities, which will give students avenues to excel outside the classroom. “If we create an environment that’s conducive to their needs, they’ll definitely come to school on a regular basis,” Washington said. Washington began her tenure as principal Aug. 26. She replaced Cheryl Logan, who was hired by the School District of Philadelphia in July after a three-year stint as Parkdale’s principal.

It’s been 22 years since 2-month-old Christian Gabriel Horchler lost his life to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, but he inspired efforts that live on today. The infant’s death led to the creation of SIDS Educational Services, a nonprofit founded by his mother, Joani Horchler of Cheverly. Launched in 1993, the organization offers support to families affected by SIDS and other infant deaths. “It’s gotten easier for me to help other parents as my severe pain has subsided,” Horchler said. According to a report from the Maryland Vital Statistics Administration, SIDS, which causes unexpected infant deaths, was responsible for 10.3 percent of Maryland’s 458 infant deaths in 2012. For the past decade, Horchler has led a SIDS Charity Run/Walk, with this year’s event taking place Sept. 8 at Buddy Attick Lake Park in Greenbelt. The event raises awareness for SIDS and proceeds go toward SIDS research and cribs for low-income families. Horchler said the race’s purpose was to honor the babies who died and the families who were affected. Through donations and a $20 race fee the event raised about $18,000, Horchler said. About 200 people attended, down from previous years, but a similar amount of funds were raised, she said. “It’s very touching to me,” she said of the participation level. Steven Stuart of Green-

belt, who lost his 3-month-old son, Colin, to SIDS in March 2011, completed the walk with his wife, Ellen Bastio, and two young children. He said he blamed himself after Colin’s death, but has since been able to cope with the loss by connecting with parents dealing with similar tragedies. “You go from feeling like the victim to understanding that you’re not, to helping others,” Stuart said. With SIDS Educational Services, Horchler facilitates a monthly SIDS and infant death support group and offers oneon-one counseling to grieving parents. She is also a co-author of the “SIDS & Infant Death Sur-

vival Guide.” “The thing about grief is, you can’t go over it or around it. You have to go through it,” Horchler said. Cheverly Mayor Michael Callahan said he has known Horchler for more than 20 years and praised her work with the organization. “Once she decides to do something, it comes to fruition,” Callahan said. Horchler said she feels fortunate to have had Christian, even for two months. “He was definitely worth all the pain we went through,” Horchler said.

Two men sought in robbery of delegate One charged in connection with attack on state representative 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. 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 866-4118477 to remain anonymous, Alexander said.

Job fair set for 900 positions as outlet mall nears opening

Along for the rides

Officials say retailer will provide ‘shot in the arm’ for market




Eyan Young-Bailey, 6, of Upper Marlboro goes around on a swing ride Thursday during the first night of the Prince George’s County Fair at the Prince George’s Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro.

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.


The Tanger Outlets mall at National Harbor, currently under construction, is expected to open in November. 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 location 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. “Upscale is a subjective term.” Turner said the stores that have been announced are the high-quality stores he was hoping would come to the outlet. “We want to create an excuse for other people from other areas to come to Prince George’s County and spend their money,” Turner said.




Prince George’s County job-seekers will have an opportunity to vie for about 900 fulltime 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 Prince George’s 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

Sharon Williams, a 20-year resident of Bladensburg, said the town was in better shape before James became mayor in 2005. “It was safer, it was cleaner, we had trash pickup twice. It was just better,” Williams said. James, seeking his fifth term, said crime has declined during his tenure as mayor while property tax rates have remained the same. He said Bladensburg has progressed in recent years with efforts such as a joint partnership with Autumn Woods Apartments and ECO City Farms to create an urban farm that will make healthy foods more accessible to residents; lobbying with Prince George’s County and state officials for a new library;

Thursday, September 12, 2013 lr and the Green Street Initiative, a project intended to make the town safer for pedestrians and healthier for the environment by adding new sidewalks and improving traffic flow. James said these initiatives required cooperation and communication between the Town Council, residents, county and state officials. “[We’ve] been doing a great job in collaborating with all the different levels,” James said. The town of about 9,000 residents holds elections every two years, with the mayor and one from each of the two Ward 1 and Ward 2 council seats The mayor serves two-year terms and council members serve four-year terms. Incumbent council members Cris Mendoza (Ward 1) and Walter Ficklin (Ward 2) filed for re-election, and newcomer Beverly Hall is running uncontested for the Ward 2 seat, formerly held by

Walter George. Rather than host a special election for George’s seat, town officials opted to include the remainder of George’s term in this year’s election. The seat will be up for election again in 2015. Hall, 67, is the president of Beacon Lights, a women’s support group in Bladensburg. She said in her experience with the organization, the mayor and council have been accessible. “If you have a concern, you can go to them. They’re very approachable,” Hall said. Ficklin said the council has implemented effective policy, particularly with regard to development. “If you look at our track records and you ask the question, ‘Is the town in better shape than it was four years ago?’ I believe you’ll see a difference,” Ficklin said.

Continued from Page A-1 those groups gradually turned the event over to St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Laurel, said church historian Sandra Johnson. “This year’s celebration has been designed to recapture the traditions of the past, with vendors, ball games and the return of the parade,” Johnson said. Last year’s event lacked a parade due to scheduling conflicts, said co-organizer Tanya Johnson (no relation). This year, St. Mark’s Young Adult Ministry, which is now handling the event, worked to ensure the parade would take place. “This year, with some help from the city, we were able to get the parade going,” said Tanya Johnson, one of the eight-member Young Adult Ministry. Tanya Johnson said attendance was estimated to be around 300 people, which she said is higher than the past few

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-toplay scheme. Among Barnes-Shell’s immediate priorities is hiring three staff members, and beginning training and educating county government employees so they know the 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 educa-

years, when attendance declined. “I think it went really well for our first time hosting the event,” she said. The Emancipation Day Celebration has been taking place annually since 1910, said Laurel Mayor Craig Moe. The event takes place in the Grove area of Laurel, which has historically been the center of the African-American community in the city, said Sandra Johnson. In 1992, the city dedicated Emancipation Park, at the corner of 8th Street and West Street, and it has been home to the annual celebration ever since, Moe said. Jacquelyn Weston, a South Laurel resident for the past 12 years, said this was her first Emancipation Day celebration, and after bringing her eightyear-old grandson for a nearby soccer game, decided to attend. “I thought it was really great. I loved the parade,” Weston said. Tanya Johnson said the Young Adult Ministry has learned from this year’s celebration, and is already working on

plans for next year. “We want to make sure there are more kid-friendly activities and keep the parade going longer, to fill out the day. I think those are two of the main things we’ll be focusing on,” she said. Brooks, who served as grand marshal of the parade, said that in her 92 years of attending Emancipation Day celebrations, no two celebrations have been the same. “Every year, it’s different. They have different things, like this year they have these [vendor] booths, but every year, it’s great,” Brooks said. Regardless of how the event changes, Brooks said it’s important to remember the meaning of the event. “It’s about freedom. It’s about remembering our forefathers and the struggles they faced. It’s important to remember that,” she said.

they would like to see Spanish immersion added to Prince George’s families’ options. Cesar Chavez Elementary School in Hyattsville offers partial 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 chair-

man 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.”

tion 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. “The opening of our new Office of Ethics and Accountability is an important step forward for Prince George’s County. I knew this office would need a leader with experience building a concept or idea into a reality,” Baker said in a statement. “I am confident that [Barnes-Shell] will create an effective and efficient office

that will ensure our government and its employees are held to the highest ethical standards.” 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. “It’s a good thing because it suggests there’s an appreciation at the highest level for government accountability. I’ve been impressed with what they’re trying to do, but they’re trying to turn the direction of a battleship.”

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.

BEST BET Suitland at E. Roosevelt

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),

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

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,

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.”

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 — there will be no conversion, according to Earl Hawkins. This clarification left Good Counsel-to-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.”

The event lasted three days and Crescent Cricket Club won the tournament with a sevenwicket victory against Washington Cricket Club in Monday’s final. Two pick-up teams from Prince George’s County (Prince George’s XI and Bowie XI) were added to compete against the already-established WMCB clubs, but were eliminated in the preliminary round of the tournament. Kashif Pervez (Crescent) was named the best batsman of the 13-game tournament while Ankur Saini (Damascus)

was named the best bowler and Bally Maharaj (Crescent) took home the Most Valuable Player award. “Growing up in Pakistan, we played cricket the way people here play basketball or football,” said Farhan Mirza, who played for the Prince George’s XI. “I was playing through middle school and after I moved here I started finding out where the local leagues are. I love the game, and you go wherever the game is.” Currently there are more than 2,000 cricketers in Maryland as local officials and cricket

enthusiasts continue their push to educate and inspire Americans to play the sport and open more indoor and outdoor playing facilities and training programs throughout the state. “The way the world runs, it’s easy to get into trouble and sports can play a part in helping prevent that,” Kallicharan said. “I tell kids one thing. When you walk out there to compete, there’s no rich or poor and no black or white. It’s just me and you.”

INCIDENTS INVOLVING UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND STUDENTS IN VIOLATION OF THE CODE OF STUDENT CONDUCT The University of Maryland recently revised the Code of Student Conduct to include misconduct that occurs off-campus. There was increasing concern over the limitations of the Code to address certain types of misconduct off-campus such as physical assaults, sexual assaults, and acts of hazing. In May 2013, the University Senate voted to approve expansion of jurisdiction of the Code of Student Conduct. Specifically, the Code now covers conduct that occurs: (a) on University premises; or (b) at University-sponsored activities; or (c) not on University premises if the conduct would otherwise constitute a violation of this Code had it occurred on University premises and if in the judgment of the Director of Student Conduct the conduct affects the safety of the University community or the orderly operation of the University. Examples of off-campus misconduct that could be referred to the Office of Student Conduct include, but are not limited to: Rioting, Sexual Assault, Hazing, Possession/Use Of Weapons, Illegal Drug Use And/Or Distribution, Stalking, Cyber-Bullying, Assault, Large Parties With Excessive Noise Or Distribution Of Alcohol To Minors. SANCTIONS FOR STUDENTS: Students found responsible for off-campus misconduct are subject to the same consequences and penalties as misconduct that occurs on campus including dismissal from the University. WHAT TO DO IF YOU WITNESS MISCONDUCT: 1. Call the Police (9-1-1) 2. Call Code Enforcement to Report noise complaints: 240-487-3570 during business hours Mon-Fri, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., or the Code Enforcement Hotline at 240-487-3588 after hours. A Code Enforcement Officer is on duty during certain evening and weekend hours. You are advised to contact the Police or Code Enforcement Officers and have them respond rather than confront misconduct and possibly risk your own safety. TO REPORT AN INCIDENT TO THE UNIVERSITY: Any person may report an incident to the Office of Student Conduct at the University! To report an incident to the Office of Student Conduct please go to and click on the report form. When filing a report to the Office of Student Conduct PLEASE summarize the incident and write out the facts of the incident and be as specific as possible.

It can be frustrating to encounter unexpected delays during your day, whether it is because you are behind a refuse truck or a school or Metro bus. However, it is important to remember that there are people in and around these vehicles who expect to arrive home safely at the end of the day. City employees have been injured as a result of distracted drivers. Remember to slow down to get around these vehicles, and that aggressive driving could kill or injure another person.


• Reduce waste and excessive purchases – look at the supplies, backpacks, etc. from last school year and decide what can be reused before your back-toschool shopping spree. During the school year, use a lunchbox and reusable containers for sandwiches, snacks, drinks, and cutlery to reduce waste from packaging. • Choose items with less packaging; use refillable pens, pencils, folders and notebooks whenever possible, instead of the single-use alternatives. Don’t forget your reusable shopping bags! • Make bulk purchases for commonly-used items like notebook and printer paper, folders, pens and pencils. Do you have family or friends with similaraged students? Consider splitting big purchases to save money and storage space. • Buy recycled content supplies. There are many options for paper products, folders, binders, pens, pencils, rulers, pencil cases, even planners that contain some amount of recycled materials. Purchasing recycled-content products helps perpetuate recycling programs. • Recycle in the classroom and at home. Don’t forget to recycle (or reuse) notebook paper, construction paper, printer paper, index cards, folders, and newsletters. Other back-to-school recyclable items include shoe boxes, juice and milk boxes (no straws), paperboard and cardboard packaging, plastic beverage bottles, and plastic containers for yogurt and applesauce (make sure they are clean first!)

Los Angeles sculptor Alison Saar uses glass pieces shaped like female reproductive organs to explore sexism and ageism in her piece “Still Run Dry” in an exhibit of her work called “Still ....” The exhibit runs from Thursday through Dec. 13 at the David C. Driskell Center at the University of Maryland, College Park. LA LOUVER GALLERY

Alison Saar uses a cotton scale to explore feelings about racism in her piece “Weight.”

Allison Saar:

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. Both antlers and glass are integral to the 11 sculptures in

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.”

said musician Andrés Salguero. “I love that kids are very sincere,” “If they like you, they will let you

know. If they don’t like you, they will fall asleep and want to move onto something else.” Salguero, 35, has found a way to keep children’s attention. His bilingual song and dance routine, “Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés,” aims to expose children to another culture. 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.

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 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 welleducated 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




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.

Page B-3

Shades of blue GREENBELT BLUES FESTIVAL n When: 1-11 p.m. Saturday n Where: New Deal Café, 113 Centerway, Roosevelt Center, Greenbelt n Tickets: Admission is free, but tips for musicians are encouraged n For information: 301-4745642;

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 Ed-

die & 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 contribut-

ing 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 seventh full-length CD, “Friend.” Also new to the festival this year is singer Jennifer Cooper from Charles County and her ensemble GrooveSpan, which also performs jazz and pop. The afternoon is scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. with the Lady Rose Blues Band, and move in-


side about 8 p.m. (A complete list of bands and times can be found at the New Deal Café website.) “We really try to do a variety, it’s not just one note,” said Vengrouski. “You get something different with every set.” “Come out and spend the day,” he said. “If you don’t like one thing, wait, and there’ll be something else.”

“It’s natural for us humans to feel afraid of something foreign. We have prejudices. Kids’ minds are cleaner. They are more open-minded to something new. There are fewer preconceived notions, fewer prejudices.” a young age is something Salguero thinks is very important if we want to make strides in promoting multiculturalism and acceptance. “It’s natural for us humans to feel afraid of something foreign,” Salguero said. “We have

prejudices. Kids’ minds are cleaner. 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 musi-

cian said the bookings have prevented 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.


the end of the performance, she teaches them traditional Latin music and dances including Cumbia, the Tango and Bachata. Salguero, occasionally accompanied by one or two other musicians, performs the interactive show at schools, libraries, community centers, festivals and even birthday parties. On Sept. 19, he’ll perform at the Smithsonian Institution’s Discovery Theater as a part of a Hispanic Heritage Month celebration. “I like to promote multiculturalism,” Salguero said. “I come from a different culture ... so I want to help kids of any background, help them understand the new cultural reality of this country that is changing so fast.” That cultural reality, according to Salguero, is the rapidly growing Hispanic population in the United States. “The Hispanic population is growing exponentially and that’s changing the environment for the kids,” Salguero said. “Fifty years ago, they weren’t teaching Spanish in schools. We’ve come a long way and I think there’s a

great need for Latino arts, particularly family-based Latino arts.” Salguero added that his multicultural performance can benefit both native Spanish speakers and those learning Spanish as a second language. “For the Hispanic kids, I think it’s important for them to see a role model who looks like them, using the language they speak at home,” Salguero said. “It helps the non-Hispanic kids have a positive experience with a foreign language and culture.” Reaching his audiences at

Life goes on

n Play focuses on aftereffects of New York terrorist attacks BY

Thursday, September 12, 2013 lr


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

THE GUYS n When: 8 p.m. Sept. 11-14; 3 p.m. Sept. 15 n Where: Abiding Presence Lutheran Church, 10774 Rhode Island Ave., Beltsville n Tickets: $10, $8 seniors/ students/military; first responders admitted free n For information: 301-937-7646,

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.

Ryan Anthony Jones of District Heights and Donna Mertens of Beltsville star in The Theater Project Beltsville production of “The Guys.” 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. “We hear about the number of first responders who were sacrificed and this play deals with five specific ones as people,” Akers said. “The play says that we don’t know about the people that we pass on the street — just what 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.”

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has prepared an Environmental Assessment to evaluate impacts to natural and cultural resources that would occur as a result of a proposed project to install and operate solar photovoltaic arrays at the George Washington Carver Center (GWCC) in Beltsville, Maryland. This notice announces the availability of the Environmental Assessment for public review and comment. The George Washington Carver Center is a 360,000-square-foot office building built in 1997 that provides office space for nearly 1,500 USDA federal government employees. This project would support the USDA Office of Operations’ pursuit of a Solar Photovoltaic Energy Service Agreement with Washington Gas Light Company and help it comply with legislative requirements to increase the use/purchase of renewable energy. The USDA prepared the EA for the proposed installation and operation of solar photovoltaic arrays at the GWCC, in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended and implementing regulation, 40 CFR Parts 1500-1508. The USDA explored and objectively evaluated two alternatives in the EA - the No Action Alternative and the Proposed Action Alternative (to install solar photovoltaic arrays at the George Washington Carver Center).

The environmental assessment will be open for a 30-day public review from September 12 through October 12, 2013. The document has been posted electronically on the USDA Web site, located at Printed copies of the Environmental Assessment are also available for review at the George Washington Carver Center security desk, 5601 Sunnyside Ave, College Park, MD 20740, and at the Greenbelt Library, 11 Crescent Road, Greenbelt, MD 20770. Any person interested in commenting on this Environmental Assessment should submit comments by October 12, 2013 to Mr. Edward Murtagh, Sustainable Operations Manager, Office of Operations, U.S. Department of Agriculture, 1400 Independence Ave., SW, Suite 1444 South Building, Washington, D.C. 20250.
