‘We wanted the best candidate’

Menu-labeling is part of county effort to trim high obesity rate



People might see more numbers on the menu when they eat out in Prince George’s if the county passes a law requiring chain restaurants to list calorie contents next to items on all their menus. Restaurants with five or more locations in the county would have to list calorie and salt content for “permanent” menu items — those offered for at least 30 days a year — or face a $100 fine, according to the bill, CB-74-2013, that County Councilman Eric C. Olson introduced Sept. 17.

Beltsville principal gets online support BY JAMIE


When the principal position at Beltsville Academy became available, parents took matters into their own hands and started an online petition to get longtime educator Leslie Lowe hired. “We wanted the best candidate, and we felt that was Leslie. She’s been here a very long time, and she’s got a fantastic relationship with the staff, and she is an excellent organizational leader,” said Andrew Hammond, president of the academy’s Parent Teacher Organization. Lowe, 47, of Anne Arundel County,

was hired to take the helm Aug. 26. At the time she was named to the post, the petition had 170 signatures. Lowe is entering her 25th year at the school, rising from a substitute teacher in 1989 to an assistant principal in 2004. She said this was her first time applying for the principal’s position, and explained that taking the reins is easier as she has been at the school so long. “As a ‘new’ principal, I don’t have the added demands of learning a school I’ve never been at, or learning a community I’m unfamiliar with. All of those demands I already know,” Lowe said. After former Principal Rashida Ed-

wards left for Rosaryville Elementary School in Upper Marlboro, parents became concerned a new principal would be appointed without their input, Hammond said, so the online petition was launched. Lowe said she appreciates the effort parents made on her behalf, even if it didn’t affect her selection. Prince George’s County Public Schools spokesman Max Pugh said the school system gets feedback through leadership surveys and not through blogs and petitions. But Lowe said the

“Over 70 percent of restaurants in Prince George’s are fast-food restaurants so this will capture the vast majority of restaurants in the county,” said Olson (D-Dist. 3) of College Park. The bill is in response to the county’s disproportionately higher diabetes and obesity rates — the highest in the state — and is part of the 2010-2014 health improvement plan, a blueprint for making Prince George’s healthier, Olson said. The bill will affect a lot of fastfood restaurants, which Olson said are one of the primary sources of restaurant food in the county and he thinks that will help residents make healthier decisions. About 71 percent of Prince George’s County residents are obese or overweight, according to

Candidates differ on Laurel speed cameras Challenger hopes to win rematch from 2011 councilman-at-large election n



Youth services advocate Adrian Rousseau said for the Nov. 5 election, he doesn’t want anyone to think Laurel’s councilman-at-large race is in the bag. “I had a lot of people tell me they didn’t come out to vote because they thought I had it well in hand,” said Rousseau, 50, who works as a security consultant and contractor. In 2011, Rousseau lost the at-large race with 41 percent of the vote. In the 2011 election, 13.4 per-

Hyattsville savings effort sparks electric-car plan City gets grant to buy vehicles to cut fuel costs n



Paying $3,000 per year to fuel a parkingenforcement vehicle doesn’t make sense financially or environmentally, said Jim Chandler, Hyattsville’s director of community and economic development. So, the city put a new plan into gear. For the past three months, officials worked to reduce the gas costs of its government vehicles. They determined that by replacing a 1999 Ford Taurus, which was driven about 10 hours per day, they could significantly cut costs by using battery-powered vehicles.

As part of the Maryland Smart Energy Communities program administered by the Maryland Energy Administration, Chandler said, the city applied for a grant to fund electric vehicles that cost about $15,000 and don’t require gas. The city is expected to receive $59,113 from the Maryland Energy Administration to fund three Polaris GEMs electric vehicles, Chandler said. Rockville uses a Polaris GEM for parking operations, Chandler said. At the Sept. 16 Hyattsville City Council meeting, the council voted to purchase three electric vehicles at a cost not exceeding $52,362, anticipating the funds from the Maryland Energy Administration. Two vehicles will be used for parking compliance. The third, equipped with a storage container, will be used to conduct property

and rental inspections. The cars are expected to be on the road by mid-November. The third vehicle replaces a 1995 Chevrolet S-10, a compact pickup truck that cost about $2,500 per year in fuel, Chandler said. Maintaining the new cars will require about $100 per year, and additional costs, such as vehicle charging, will be “minimal,” he said. Twenty-six Maryland municipalities are enrolled in the Maryland Smart Energy Communities program, said MEA spokeswoman Devan Willemsen. To receive funding, municipalities must adopt a set of policies specified by the Maryland Energy Administration. “We’re very pleased to see Hyattsville

Speakers included Timothy Jansen, the executive director of Community Crisis Services, Inc., a Hyattsville-based nonprofit providing information and assistance on issues such as suicide and homelessness; Laila Riazi, the group’s director of development; and Deborah Toppins, the school’s investigator counselor. Patricia Johnson, parent of a Laurel High graduate and a senior at the school, answered a call for volunteers from the school PTSA and helped put on the program. “It was important to me, because I’m a stakeholder, and even after my students graduate, I will still be a stakeholder,” Johnson said. “When you look at the impact of students committing suicide, it has a profound effect on the community, and on their fellow students.”

In addition to being awarded Greenbelt Police Officer of the Year three times,

Schinner is the recipient of three lifesaving awards and numerous commendations. “As much as Carl will be missed as a co-worker and valued member of our management team, his daily presence as a friend and a confidant will be a greater loss,” Greenbelt Police Chief James Craze said in the release.

Church mobilizes students to paint bleachers The Maryland Christian Fellowship Community Church of Greenbelt helped paint the bleachers at the Eleanor Roosevelt High School football field on Aug. 24. MCF Pastor Jeff Warner said the church, which has been in Greenbelt for two years, learned from the school that the bleachers had not been painted in 15 years, and began fund raising to purchase paints and supplies.

“We’ve been wanting to do more in the community,” Warner said. “Within two days, we had raised enough money to do it.” The church worked with the school administration and athletics department to provide community service hours for the project, and more than 120 students turned out, Warner said, painting 36,000 square feet of bleachers in under six hours and using 90 gallons of paint. “It was an overall great event, and the kids did an awesome job,” Warner said.

Climbing to new heights


Officials say joint effort would bring attention to community concerns BY



Cindy Vigil, 5, of Bladensburg climbs a rock wall Saturday at the 17th annual Port Towns Day at the Bladensburg Waterfront Park. More than 1,000 people attended the festival, which is held to honor the Port Towns — Bladensburg, Colmar Manor, Cottage City and Edmonston — and celebrate their accomplishments. In addition to rock climbing, the event featured live music, games, face painting and other entertainment.

Program lets youths step into art form Temple Hills woman hopes to encourage additional dance team option in schools n


Safety event to address active shooter scenario


Lora Fitzgerald of Temple Hills wants Prince George’s County schools to step up and reach youth through a popular dance form. Fitzgerald launched a program Sept. 16 for middle school-age children to promote stepping, a form of percussive dance involving foot stepping and hand clapping. “Stepping is a vibrant thing,” said Fitzgerald, a program specialist with the Bowie Community Center. Fifty children registered for the first week of the program, which is called S.T.R.I.V.E — Success through Teamwork, Respect, Inclusiveness, Values and Excellence. Ameera Westfield, 14, of Bladensburg was looking forward to participating in S.T.R.I.V.E. “I like the teamwork, and how you feel like you’re a part of a family when you join step team,” Westfield said. Richard Melvern is a volunteer coach of “Dem’ Raider Boyz,” a nationally ranked step squad from Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt. He said the squad is sustained entirely by donations and competition earnings. It costs about $4,000 per year to fund his 22-person team, he said. Melvern said programs like S.T.R.I.V.E. could help draw awareness for step dancing. “Having more opportunities for young people to get involved with stepping, I believe, will increase their demand to participate in the art form,” Melvern said. Fitzgerald said there are about eight high school step teams in the

Seeking greater input on plans to build a new Hyattsville Branch Library, community members from neighboring municipalities are joining efforts to stall plans for the $14.3 million facility. Plans for renovating the 49-yearold site have been in place since 1988, according to the Prince George’s County’s Capital Improvement Program. In the fiscal 2014 Capital Improvement Program, the project was converted into a complete rebuild because the current facility had infrastructure problems and was less compatible with modern library designs, said Kathleen Teaze, director of the Prince George’s County Memorial Library System. “It essentially has the library making consequential decisions, and then coming to the public,” said Hyattsville councilman Bart Lawrence (Ward 1). Hyattsville community members shared concerns Aug. 13 with Calverton-based developer Grimm + Parker Architects representatives at the library in a meeting arranged by the library system. “[The meeting was] a tiny part of what should have been a much larger effort,” Lawrence said. Hyattsville council members voted Sept. 16 to send a letter to Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) requesting suspension of the library’s redesign until there are additional opportunities for community input. The letter also asked the county

to revisit the decision on whether to rebuild the facility, which was constructed in 1964, mentioning aesthetic, historical and programmatic implications. Residents in attendance at the Aug. 13 meeting said they were concerned about preserving the distinctive flying saucer structure above the building’s entrance and wanted the new library to maintain a diverse book collection. Mount Rainier’s council voted Sept. 3 to send a letter of support for public input on the library to the county. “It’s interesting that a number of municipalities have concerns,” said Mount Rainier Councilman Brent Bolin (Ward 2). “Hopefully the county will be responsive to that.” University Park officials are also concerned about the lack of public input in the design phase. “The town just wanted to be able to weigh in,” said Tracey Toscano, University Park’s town clerk. Melanie Hennigan, partner at Grimm + Parker, said the firm will begin working on schematic designs for the project in October. The site is set to open in 2015. “We’re very open to community input wherever it comes from,” Hennigan said. Prince George’s County Del. Doyle L. Niemann (D-Dist. 47) of Mount Rainier, a member of the Friends of the Hyattsville Branch, called the decision to rebuild the facility “a no-brainer.” He said suspending the redesign could result in Hyattsville’s branch losing funding for the facility, a concern shared by Teaze. “If one project doesn’t move, another one will,” Niemann said.


Navy Yard shooting prompts addition to emergency preparedness session BY CHASE COOK STAFF WRITER


Brion Whyte, 11, of Greenbelt stretches with his peers during a class that is part of the S.T.R.I.V.E. program Monday night at the Bladensburg Community Center. county. She wants S.T.R.I.V.E. to demonstrate there is interest among middle school students, too. She said her long-term goal is for step dancing to be recognized as a sport or an art, so it can receive funding from the school system. Prince George’s County Schools spokeswoman ShaVon McConnell said step teams are considered an extracurricular activity and thus do not receive county funding. Two 90-minute S.T.R.I.V.E. sessions are held each week at six participating community centers in Bowie, Bladensburg, Capitol Heights, Forestville, Landover and Temple Hills. Classes focus primarily on stepping, but also include health and personal development components. “It takes discipline, it takes creativity, it takes stamina to do it,” said Fitzgerald, who has coached youth

stepping groups since 1995. The first class at the Bladensburg Community Center began with students recording their heart rates and continued with a 60-minute exercise regimen of sit-ups, push-ups and jumping jacks. Brion Whyte, 11, of Greenbelt said he participates in other sports, but enjoys the athletic component of step dancing. “I just like the movement of it,” he said. Melvern said he is encouraged by Fitzgerald’s efforts to reach youth, as he started step dancing with his church when he was 7 years old. “Seeing this same opportunity being presented around the county, I find it not only necessary, but also inspiring,” Melvern said.

Prince George’s County officials say they hope adding an active shooter presentation in response to the recent Washington Navy Yard shooting will help residents better understand how to respond to threats and save lives. Ronnie Gill, Prince George’s County Office of Emergency Management director, said that in light of recent events, this training would help address an emerging threat, “especially when it happens next door to you.” On Sept. 16, Aaron Alexis, 34, of Texas allegedly killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard after he got into the facility with a gun, according to the Metropolitan Police Department. Alexis died in a gun battle with police, according to MPD. The active shooter presentation will be part of the 2013 Emergency Preparedness Conference, which takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 28 at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden Ministry Center, 3600 Brightseat Road in Landover, Gill said. While the panel is still being put together, panelists will be discussing safety procedures related to active

shooter scenarios, Gill said. Rex Barrett, Prince George’s County Public Schools’ acting security director, said he will be part of the new panel, discussing safety systems in place if a school is confronted with an active shooter. This panel is an opportunity to show parents and residents what the schools do in these situations, and part of the discussion will be teaching parents how they can help, he said. “One of the things we want to urge is candid conversations with your kids,” Barrett said. “If you see something, say something.” Lt. William Alexander, a county police spokesman, said people should develop plans for active shooter situations, as having a plan goes a long way to making sure people respond appropriately and saves lives. Alexander cautions that plans are not always foolproof and people should be prepared to adapt if the situation calls for it. “In those situations you aren’t going to have time to think,” Alexander said. “We encourage people to have a plan and practice that plan.” The conference takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and attendance is free, but registration is required. To register for the conference, call the Office of Emergency Management at 301780-8313.

Mayor, two council Rare disease inspires outreach effort seats contested in College Park races Lanham woman speaks at patient education event about Cushing’s disease n

Two-time candidate to challenge incumbent city leader n


The College Park mayor and two council members are facing challengers in the Nov. 5 city elections, which will also usher in two new leaders as a two incumbents leave office. Robert McCeney, who ran twice unsuccessfully for a District 3 City Council seat, will try to unseat incumbent Mayor Andrew Fellows, who was elected mayor in 2009 after representing District 3 from 2001 to 2007. Council districts 1 and 3 are competitive races, each having three candidates vying for the two council seats per district. Districts 2 and 4 will see new faces, as incumbents Robert Catlin (Dist. 2) and Marcus Afzali (Dist. 4) are not seeking re-election. Newcomers P.J. Brennan (Dist. 2) and Alan Hew (Dist. 4) are unopposed and will join incumbents Monroe Dennis and Denise Mitchell, respectively. McCeney, an elementary school teacher in 2011 who did not return repeated calls regarding his current job title, ran for District 3 council in 2009 and 2011, garnering 14 percent and 17 percent of the vote. Fellows, who also works as Chesapeake Region director for the environmental nonprofit Clean Water Action, was unopposed in the last two mayoral elections. In District 1, there is a threeway race for the two seats be-

tween challenger Benjamin S. Mellman, an undergraduate student at the University of Maryland, College Park, and incumbents S.M. Fazlul Kabir, a software engineer, and Patrick L. Wojahn, an attorney. District 1 in the north of the city includes the neighborhoods of Sunnyside, Hollywood, Daniels Park and portions of Oak Springs and Cherry Hill. District 2 in the mid-east area of the city includes the neighborhoods of Ranchville, Berwyn, Lakeland, a portion of Oak Springs and the south portion of the University of Maryland campus. District 3 will see newcomer Matthew Popkin, a public policy graduate student at the University of Maryland, College Park, running against incumbents Robert W. Day and Stephanie E. Stullich for the two district seats. District 3 in the south of the city encompasses the neighborhoods of Calvert Manor, Yarrow, College Park Estates, Calvert Hills, a small southeast portion of the university campus and Old Town, College Park’s downtown area and Fraternity Row. There are only two candidates for the two seats in District 4, the mid-west area of the city, which includes the neighborhoods of College Park Woods, Crystal Springs, most of Cherry Hill and Autoville. Mitchell was first elected to the council in 2009. She is CEO of EEM&J Child Care Solutions. Hew is self-employed in computer support. Afzali, who was also elected to represent District 4 in 2009, will not return for a third term. janfenson-comeau@


Stacy L. Hardy of Lanham described herself as athletic, which is why she became concerned when in 1996 she mysteriously gained 240 pounds that took five doctors 14 years to determine she had a potentially fatal disease. Now Hardy said she wants to raise awareness among others who may unknowingly have Cushing’s disease, but are unaware of the symptoms and treatment. It wasn’t until 2010 that Hardy, now 43, was diagnosed with the disease, a rare disorder that causes the body to release too much cortisol, the body’s stress or “fight or flight” hormone, said Gary Wand, a pituitary gland specialist at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Excess cortisol causes weight gain, especially in the stomach, extreme fatigue, muscle aches, anxiety and depression, he said. “I didn’t even know what Cushing’s was. I was ready to just live with [the symptoms],” Hardy said, adding that by the time she was diagnosed she felt so tired she could barely move. At 5 feet, 4 inches tall, Hardy said she reached 365 pounds during her struggle with the disease. “We knew something for a while wasn’t right, but I never thought it would be something like that,” said Hardy’s daughter, Paij Hardy, 21, a student at Baltimore City Community College. Just three out of every one million people are diagnosed with Cushing’s each year, said Wand, who estimates he sees 30 patients per year worldwide.


Lanham resident Stacey L. Hardy, a survivor of Cushing’s disease, will speak about her experience with the pituitary disorder at an upcoming event at Johns Hopkins Hospital. In 2011, Hardy underwent 16 hours of surgery at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore to remove four tumors from her pituitary gland, located at the base of the brain that controls the release of cortisol. Today, she is 100 pounds lighter, with the weight still rapidly coming off, and said she is determined to serve as a lifelong support and education source for her fellow “cushies” — others with Cushing’s disease. Hardy will speak Saturday at the Johns Hopkins Pituitary Gland Center’s fifth annual Patient Education Day, an event to raise awareness about the disease, Wand said. Since the pituitary gland is the size of a kidney bean, Hardy underwent several brain scans before doctors, who previously suggested she might have leu-

kemia or needed to diet and exercise more, could tell there were tumors on her gland, she said. Hardy’s experience with delayed diagnosis and misdiagnosis is not unique, Wand said. Cushing’s is a “subtle” disease, which is difficult to diagnose, and not everyone exhibits the same symptoms, he said. If left untreated for more

than a decade, the disease is fatal, but removing the pituitary gland tumors has proved extremely successful, Wand said. “I’m evidence that there’s help out there,” Hardy said. “I can move. I can almost run. I can bend over and pick up a box. Oh my goodness, I can dance.”

Nine candidates vie for seven Greenbelt posts BY JAMIE ANFENSON-COMEAU STAFF WRITER

Nine candidates are vying for the seven at-large Greenbelt district council seats in the upcoming election, including a homeless man who also ran in 2011. In addition to the seven incumbents, who are all running for re-election, two challengers have also filed to run in the Nov. 5 municipal election. One, William Orleans, resides in Greenbelt, but maintains no fixed address, said Elections Clerk Cindy Murray.

Homicide witness fatally shot

Prince George’s County police are investigating the fatal shooting of Kquante Fisher, 19, who was found dead Sept. 18 morning in Fort Washington. At 9:25 a.m., police responded to a home at the 6100 block of Kildare Court for a welfare check, and officers found Fisher suffering from a gunshot wound, said police spokesman Lt. William Alexander. The man was pronounced dead at the scene and preliminary investigation shows the shooting was not accidental, Alexander said. Fisher had previously been a suspect in another homicide that occurred in January, but he had since been changed to a witness, and Alexander said Fisher’s previous affiliations with that case might have played a role in his death. Anyone with information is urged to call the homicide unit at 301-772-4925, or to leave an anonymous tip, call the Crime Solvers line at 866-411-8477. — CHASE COOK

Orleans is a regular attendee of City Council meetings. Orleans was the sole challenger in 2011, earning 4.4 percent of the total votes cast in the eight-candidate race. Orleans has no contact information listed other than a post office box. The second challenger in the race, Susan Stewart, did not immediately return requests for

comment via phone and email. Voters may cast up to seven votes for candidates to fill the two-year term seven council seats. At the start of the new term, the council votes for one member to serve as mayor and another to serve as mayor pro tem, according to the city charter. Greenbelt’s current mayor,

Judith “J” Davis, was first elected to the City Council in 1993 and was elected mayor by the council in 1997, a position she has continued to hold. Emmett Jordan, the council’s mayor pro tem, made history in 2009 as Greenbelt’s first black council member. The other five incumbents

seeking re-election are Konrad Herling, first elected in 2003; Leta Mach, first elected in 2003; Silke Pope, first elected in 2009; Edward Putens, first elected in 1981 and Rodney Roberts, first elected in 1991. janfenson-comeau@

State grant to boost staffing for county’s investigative unit Official says money will be used to add and maintain positions n



Prince George’s County’s efforts to keep serious violent offenders behind bars will be aided thanks to a state grant. “In order for a person to stay off the street, we have to be able to prosecute them,” said John Erzen, spokesman for Prince George’s State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks. A grant provided by the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention is being used to add and maintain staff members in the Alsobrooks’ Strategic Investigations Unit. Erzen said the funds will pay for 11 positions, most of which were covered previously by other grants. Additional grant details will be provided at the announcement, Erzen said.

The aid is essential as Erzen said there are approximately 90 prosecutors in the state’s attorney’s office who deal with repeat violent offenders. “We’re talking about violent cases, homicides, assaults, rapes,” he said. Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown (D) will announce the grant at Old Central Avenue in Capitol Heights, the site where Marckel Ross, 18, a Central High School junior, was found dead as a result of a gunshot wound on Sept. 11, 2012. Erzen said the Strategic Investigations Unit worked closely with local law enforcement to charge Travon Bennett, 20, of Bryans Road with first-degree murder. Police arrested Bennett on Feb. 25, 2013. He is currently in jail on a no-bond status awaiting a December trial. “It gives us an opportunity to highlight the unit and highlight the partnership between our office and the police department,” Erzen said.

Firefighters take flight, raise funds Team created craft for event at National Harbor



The Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department dispatched one of its newest engines to National Harbor on Saturday, but this model wasn’t built to fight fires — it was made to fly. County firefighter George Raburn of Denton and four other firefighters competed in the National Red Bull Flugtag on Saturday at National Harbor. The group drove their team-made flying machine into the Potomac River to raise money for the Local 1619 Washington Hospital Center Burn Fund, which is used to help injured Prince George’s County firefighters and their families. The Flugtag is a national event sponsored by Red Bull, an energy drink company, in which people build gliders and fly them as far as they can after pushing the craft off a 24-foot-tall deck. The event took place in five different cities simultaneously, a first for Red Bull’s Flugtag. Flugtag means “flying day” or “air show” in German. Raburn’s craft was a replica of Engine 842, the first truck to respond to National Harbor. The team wrapped a large photograph of the engine around a PVC pipe base and placed a glider with large, black wings on top that would detach once pushed off the platform. After the team did their required dance number, Raburn climbed atop the craft’s wings, piloting the craft about 6 feet after his team pushed him off the platform. While receiving big cheers from the crowd of more than 10,000 people, the county group failed to place. The winner of the event, team Harvest Bureau of Pennsylvania, took home first place after its tractor-shaped glider flew 54 feet. While Raburn said the event was entertaining, he said the focus was more on raising the money to help firefighters. “If we are going to have the public’s attention, why not raise some money?” Raburn said. “It’s been a very long three months

This was the first time the county fire/EMS department participated in the event, which featured 29 teams. putting this together.” Raburn said the team raised about $6,000 before the Flugtag event, with the final count still being tallied as of Monday afternoon. Money was raised by selling Tshirts and gathering sponsorships, Raburn said. The burn fund is managed by the Prince George’s County Professional Fire Fighters and Paramedics Association, which typically donates about $10,000 per year to the Washington Hospital Center’ Burn Unit, union president Andrew Pantelis said. The fund also keeps $10,000 in its coffers to help firefighters and their families, he said. The firefighters participating in the Flugtag have raised about as much money as one of the union’s large-scale events, he said. “It is one of the most unique

fund-raising opportunities,” Pantelis said. Flugtag participation was initiated by Raburn and his crew, who submitted their application among thousands of others who wanted to pilot crafts into the Potomac River. This was the first time Prince George’s County participated in the event and the first time the event was at National Harbor. Prince George’s County Fire Department Chief Marc Bashoor said he applauded the efforts of the firefighters who built the craft while still maintaining their duties. “It’s a personal endeavor for them,” Bashoor said. “They have the potential to make a fool of themselves and they love it. They have our support.”


The first round of this year’s Science Bowl quarterfinals kicked off with a downto-the-last-question 250 to 240 win by Samuel Ogle Middle School over Benjamin Tasker Middle School as the two Bowie teams squared off for the chance to compete in the semifinals. “This will be a hard act to follow, because of the level of play, the closeness of the game and the sportsmanship of those kids,” Science Bowl host Dave Zahren said.“They knew they were evenly matched and that it could have gone either way.” Science Bowl, now in its 28th season, is a televised quiz program pitting Prince George’s County public elementary and middle school teams against each other in a series of science-related questions worth five to 25 points, based on difficulty. The Tasker team, composed of eighthgraders Nicholas Shumar, Ezekiel Rochmis and Victor Roseman, took an early lead in the semifinal qualifier to finish the first half 125-100. But Ogle’s team of Essien Taylor, Bradley Leneski and Samantha Smith, managed to catch up to within 15 points of the lead on the next to last question, naming the placenta as the place in a hot pepper where the spicy compound capsaicin is produced. But it was the final question to name two of the three diseases Dr. Maurice Hilleman developed a vaccine for in 1963 that turned the game around after the Tasker team named only one of the diseases correctly, allowing Ogle to answer with measles and mumps, the third being rubella.

“On the last question we were all freaking out, trying to think of another one of the diseases,” Essien said. Tasker sponsor Marc Reynolds commended both teams for a well-played game. “That was more exciting than any Sunday night football game. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time,” said Reynolds. “They competed very well at the end. They gave it everything.” Tasker’s team earned a spot in the semifinal qualifier after defeating Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School of Beltsville 215 to 130. After taking a 10-point lead in the first half, Tasker’s team opened up with a series of quick responses to outpace the MLK team, composed of eighth-graders Matthew Stroud and Maria Ruiz and seventh-grader Isaiah Gills. “We had a little trouble getting the buzzer pushed in time. We weren’t quite fast enough,” said Matthew, the team captain. Ezekiel said close teamwork between himself and his teammates helped, as did their every-other-day practices. Victor said Nicholas’ quick thumb on the buzzer also helped. “I can answer some questions, but they’re the brains behind it,” Nicholas said, adding that they looked for the easy questions first to take a lead. “We knew we had the faster reflexes and we could just keep answering over and over again.” Earlier Ogle scored a 295-175 win over G. James Gholson Middle School of Landover. Gholson’s team, composed of eighthgraders Nia Dunn, Darius Holmes and Leontyne Galabe, made their school’s first Science Bowl appearance, said their sponsor, Stacie Henry. “They did really, really well. I’m very proud of them,” Henry said.

Sharon Dent, 51, of Beltsville said the law would fit today’s health-conscious lifestyles. “People are going to the gym, dieting, using Weight Watchers ... you need to be able to count calories,” Dent said. TGI Fridays, a national restaurant chain with five Prince George’s locations currently has menu items featuring dishes under 700 calories, said Tierney Evans, service manager at Laurel’s TGI Fridays. Active adult men and women should have a daily calorie intake between 2,000 to 2,800 calories depending on level of activity, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. “We don’t get a lot of people asking [for calorie information],” she said. “When

people go out to eat, they want to spend their money and not worry about calories. They want to relax when they go out.” Steffanie Jackson of Upper Marlboro has three children, and she said having calories on menus helps her make appropriate decisions for her family. “It’s one of the most responsible things [restaurants] can do,” Jackson said. “This helps me make better choices.” Under the 2010 Affordable Care Act, restaurants with 20 or more locations in the United States must disclose calories on menus,buttheregulationisnotin effect yet. There is no specific date that it will be finalized, said Shelly Burgess, U.S. Food and Drug Administration spokeswoman. The County Council’s health, education and human services committee will meet by the end of the month to discuss the bill and send its opinion back to the council, which will then take the final vote,

Olson said. Olson said he chose five restaurants instead of 20 because that would capture the majority of county restaurants without negatively impacting smaller businesses. Many fastfood chains, the largest being McDonald’s, started posting calories on their menus ahead of the federal regulation. Montgomery County passed a similar menu-label law in 2009, Olson said. “It’s consumer information and what people do with that information is up to them,” Olson said. “Personally, I think you have a right to know what you’re buying.” Some residents said listing calories wouldn’t make them think more before they order. “It wouldn’t change my order. I get what I want,” said Maurice Jones, 27, of Beltsville. “I figure I’m young, I’ll burn it off.” Staff Writer Chase Cook contributed to this report.

Air Force sergeant charged with sex crimes Allegedly molested girls, infant, took photos, videos



A member of the U.S. Air Force working at Joint Base Andrews was indicted Sept. 11 on six counts of sexually exploiting a minor to produce child pornography. According to the indictment and the criminal complaint, on Aug. 15, William S. Gazafi, 44, of Lusby allegedly engaged in an online chat with an undercover officer on a website the Federal Bureau of Investigation identified as advocating sexual acts with children. Using the handle “Bill_ James,” Gazafi allegedly told the undercover agent that he had

been drugging and molesting prepubescent girls and an infant, according to the complaint. During the chat, “Bill_ James” sent the undercover agent seven images depicting child pornography and molestation, including three he claimed he created, according to the criminal complaint. The FBI identified “Bill_ James” as Gazafi based on Internet subscriber information obtained through emergency subpoena from Comcast, according to the complaint. A military database check determined that Gazafi was active duty military in the U.S. Air Force, stationed at Andrews, according to the complaint. The FBI contacted the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, which identified Gazafi as a master sergeant working in communications and maintaining a

Leszcz said he and his colleagues on the council offer a “steady hand” to move the city forward as it moves out of the recession. “Things have been slow now, but they’re starting to gel now,” said Leszcz, citing the development of the Laurel Towne Centre at the site of the old Laurel Mall, which has been in development for more than 10 years and which is expected to open in fall 2014. Rousseau, a volunteer at the Laurel Boys & Girls Club, said he would like to see the city do more to assist the club, which provides educational and athletic opportunities for youths.

security clearance, according to the criminal complaint. Gazafi was arrested Sept. 3. When Gazafi was arrested, he was allegedly in possession of digital media containing several more images of child pornography which he allegedly created, according to the indictment. If convicted, Gazafi could be sentenced up to 30 years and a lifetime of supervised release, according to a U.S. Department of Justice news release. U.S. Magistrate Judge William Connelly ordered Gazafi to be detained without bond, based on the evidence presented at his detention hearing, according to records. Gazafi’s public defenders did not immediately return calls or emails for comment. janfenson-comeau@ ees responsible for parking compliance, Chandler said. They split time operating the Ford Taurus — which recently broke down — and working on bike or foot. “We’ll be able to effectively manage and get better coverage,” Chandler said. Hyattsville has about 80 vehicles, including trash trucks, police cars and buses. Chandler said it would be difficult to replace other vehicles with eco-friendly alternatives, but the city is looking for ways to cut gas costs, such as with propanepowered vehicles. “It’s our first step,” Chandler said. Beltsville Academy serves approximately 1,000 students in grades pre-kindergarten through eighth grade and houses a regional program for students with autism. The state test scores there consistently rank above county averages in reading and mathematics. Lowe said she hopes to build upon the school’s success. “I just want to continue the traditions that make Beltsville [Academy] a safe, nurturing environment for students. My goals focus around rigorous instruction, safety and security, and remembering that they are still children, so a little fun needs to be injected into their education as well,” Lowe said. Levet Brown, president of the Laurel Boys & Girls Club, has asked the city for regular funding and support in obtaining grants to help the club cover operational costs. The city currently helps support the club through assistance with utilities and inkind services, city spokesman Pete Piringer said. “It should be paid with our tax dollars, because it serves a community good,” Rousseau said. “It keeps kids off the streets and off the police blotter. That’s a benefit to the entire community.” Leszcz said he is not ready to propose any solutions to the club’s fiscal woes until he sees the recommendations of a task force created by the city and the club to review the club’s finances and consider avenues of funding. The final report is expected to be presented to the council in early October. “I’m a data analyst by trade,” said Leszcz, who works for the Internal Revenue Service in its Data Management Division. “I’m waiting for the report, so I can analyze the information and speak with my colleagues, then together formulate a plan based on all the information and move forward.” Rousseau said he would like the city to revisit its use of speed cameras and red light cameras. Laurel currently operates eight red-light cameras, six speed cameras and two decoy speed cameras, according to city spokesman Pete Piringer. “They’re basically speed traps,” Rousseau said. “They’re about reaching into people’s pockets in this community and not giving anything back.” Leszcz said he supports cameras to improve safety. “We get accused of it being a revenue generator, but I’d be happier if people just drove the speed limit and stopped at red lights,” Leszcz said. Leszcz said the speed cameras, including the dummy cameras, are making a difference in people’s driving habits and improving public safety. Piringer said the amount of citations the city issued from speed cameras dropped from 90,382 in 2011 to 36,511 in 2012.

Gerardo Gonzalez of Riverdale purchases vegetables Aug. 1 for his daughters Janeyri, 6, and Jastelyn, 3, from Sam Taggart of the Thank God It’s Fresh Farm at the Riverdale Park Farmers Market. A Prince George’s County councilman is hoping to add calorie counts to chain restaurant menus to encourage more residents to eat healthier.

A step in a healthier direction

Prince George’s County Councilman Eric Olson’s plan to improve public health by requiring chain restaurants to provide calorie and salt content information on menus is a step in the right direction — but it’s a tiny effort in a much larger problem. About 71 percent of county residents are overweight or obese, and Prince George’s has the highest rate in the MENU LABELS state of diabetes (and obesity ARE GOOD is a risk factor for the disMOVE, BUT ease). But while requiring adMORE IS NEEDED ditional data on menus TO ADDRESS might allow for a more inCOUNTY HEALTH formed consumer — which is important — studies have shown conflicting information regarding the impact. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service, New York University researchers found that fast-food customers who received calorie information continued to purchase the same amount of calories, while a Stanford University study found that calorie postings caused a decline in calorie intake. Either way, allowing consumers to be better informed is a good thing, and the impact on restaurants should be minimal. The 2010 Affordable Care Act requires restaurants with 20 or more locations in the United States to provide the information, and although the regulation has not been implemented yet, many restaurants have already started to comply. Montgomery County has had a menulabel law since 2009, and many fast-food chains in Prince George’s already provide calorie information. However, in this age where calorie information can be easily downloaded through a smartphone application, it’s clear that having information readily available won’t be the cure-all to the county’s weight woes. As David C. Harrington, senior policy adviser for the nonprofit public health organization CommonHealth ACTION and president and CEO of the Prince George’s Chamber of Commerce, wrote in a Gazette commentary, “it’s easier to find a place to buy fried foods, soda and beer than it is to find a fresh piece of fruit or a green space to go for a walk” in many county neighborhoods. The USDA deems Prince George’s a “food desert,” communities without ready access to fresh, healthy and affordable food. And that’s just one layer in the battle against the bulge. Crime rates in some county communities limit the ability of children and adults to play or exercise outdoors. A lack of sidewalks or parks in some neighborhoods prevent residents from enjoying evening walks. And when nutrition education and access to healthy options are added in, even a move as significant as Olson’s decision to require calorie information on menus can appear miniscule. Unfortunately, some residents may use the menu listing as a way to get more calories for the lowest price, but hopefully more will notice alternative items on the menu that are just as filling and inexpensive, but healthier. Laudable are the county health department’s ongoing efforts to educate the public regarding the dangers of obesity and provide resources to help those who are interested; the places of worship, which often take the lead on hosting health fairs to provide information in a less clinical environment; groups such as the Port Towns Community Health Partnership, which has several initiatives underway to address community health; nonprofit organizations that work to identify shortfalls in communities that may impact health; and to Olson (D-Dist. 3) of College Park, for making an effort to improve the county’s health. In the end, however, it will take more than organizations and the government to make a difference. Residents have to make a commitment to selecting healthier options, and speak up when there aren’t better choices available. Government officials cannot — and should not — force residents to eat better. However, officials can ensure nutritious options and information are available for those who choose to live healthier.

Voter ‘fraud does exist and it does matter’


The Gazette


Thursday, September 26, 2013

You may have read the recent article by [Staff Writer] Sophie Petit, “Voter watchdog clashes with Prince George’s election board over records,” dated Sept. 5. A number of our members believe the article deserves an abundance of clarification, which I hope to address herein. Election Integrity Maryland is a nonprofit corporation that has trained volunteers who actively examine voter registrations in Maryland. Collectively, we discovered “irregularities” in approximately 16,000 voter registrations, indicating serious issues with timely record maintenance of the voter registrations, which we first reported to the Prince George’s County Board of Elections in June 2012. Among our discoveries: 416 people had death records issued yet their names were still on voter rolls; 254 voters were registered in multiple states; 19 voters had duplicate registrations in Maryland; 1,026 voters were located at addresses other than the address on their registration; 66 individuals were identified as registered out of commercial business addresses; five

voters were registered at vacant lots; and 186 voter registrations were incomplete in terms of valid mailing issues. The foregoing examples were chosen to focus on Prince George’s County, since that was the focus of Ms. Petit’s article. Some Maryland lawmakers would have us believe there is no room for voting fraud, when actually, these statewide issues should be of concern to all voters. Ironically, it is relatively easy to steal someone else’s identity to cast an illicit vote, because computerized disks sold by election boards contain considerable information on registered voters. Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act requires that the Board of Elections purge from the voter rolls those who are dead in timely fashion, including those who have not voted in two or more consecutive federal elections. But this is not always done. Election Integrity Maryland identified approximately 1,000 voters that had death notices located by the Social Security Death Index, some of whom appeared to have voted after their date of death.

Does classroom ambiance contribute to achievement? Our Founding Fathers envisioned public education as the secure foundation of our democracy. A couple centuries later, the critical infrastructure in many of our schools is far too frequently descending into disrepair: structures crumble, ceilings fall, pipes leak, fungi grow, climate control malfunctions. Advocacy for reducing the tax burden abounds. Due in large part to the fiscal conservatism of recent decades, the foundation of our public schools is now cracking. It is a tribute to the dedication of educators that they frequently prevail despite these challenges. How has it become reasonable that educators often

consider an assignment in the modular classrooms a respite from the rigors in the permanent structure? Should physical plants still be in service after exceeding, and sometimes even doubling, their anticipated lifespan at completion? Children hear our collective lip service to the importance of their future. Do you think the irony escapes students crowded into dilapidated facilities? Do you believe that children are blithely unaware of differences between schoolhouses? Children can be willful, stubborn and cantankerous participants in the education process; however, children are simultaneously intelligent,

honest and insightful. Children are curiously adept at spotting incongruity coming from the adult world. Adults, ironically, seem to generate a nearly endless stream of behaviors that do not mesh with stated beliefs such as “Children Come First.” On a recent school visit with a host of dignitaries, we entered a typical first-day elementary class where an hour into the school year a teacher already had her very large class totally engaged in a floor time read-aloud. The activity ended and before transitioning to the next element of the class, she asked, “Would anyone like to know who our famous visitors are?”

A pregnant pause ensued, and in a precious moment worthy of a scene in a sitcom, one lad responded, “Uh, no!” Less than an hour into the school year, the teacher had become the most important person in the room for that group of 10-year-olds. Will Prince George’s County be able to retain teachers like her when buckets are scattered about the classroom, for months at a time, to catch the liquids from the leaking climate-control system? When will we commit to making every physical plant a welcoming structure? Kenneth B. Haines is the president of the Prince George’s County Educators’ Association.

Perrynoia strikes deep Texas Gov. Rick Perry visited Maryland last week right in the middle of Martin O’Malley’s self-congratulatory “Better Choices, Better Results” tour. O’Malley is traveling the state (except the rural areas) over the next few months promoting the accomplishments of his gubernatorial term 15 months before it ends. But Perry’s one-day visit and $500,000 ad blitz luring businesses to low-tax, business-friendly Texas is ruining O’Malley’s victory lap and unnerving O’Malley and the liberal establishment. On the day Perry arrived, The Washington Post dutifully published O’Malley’s slam on Texas, gun-control zealots tried sandbagging Perry and O’Malley kept MY MARYLAND boasting about BLAIR LEE “kicking Perry’s [behind].” Hey, what happened to civility? Funny, no one threatened O’Malley’s behind when he went to Wisconsin, New Jersey, Virginia and South Carolina attacking Republican governors on their home turf. On CNN, the two govs had a “my state’s better than yours” shootout using live statistics. Perry got off the best quip, “We pray for rain in Texas. They tax it in Maryland.” Actually, Rick Perry and Martin O’Malley have at least three things in common: they are both handsome, ambitious governors, they are both facing imminent unemployment and neither is going to be president of the United States. According to the national polls, Perry is running seventh (at 6 percent) among Republicans while O’Malley is running sixth (at 2 percent) among Democrats. So why is Perry targeting Maryland? What makes him think anyone here is unhappy? Perhaps he heard about Maryland’s net loss of 66,000 taxpayers who took their $5.5 billion net taxable incomes with them between 2000 and 2010. O’Malley’s apologists lamely counter that Maryland’s eight top billionaires still live here. Or perhaps he read about Maryland’s taxaholism problem: 40 different taxes,

fees and tolls increased during the past seven years costing taxpayers an additional $3.1 billion a year. Hey, maybe Perry is just coming here to see what a “rain tax” really looks like. Or perhaps he read about Maryland’s rural counties getting fed up with being bullied by a permanent liberal Democratic majority in Annapolis. Last year seven rural counties created the “Clean Chesapeake Coalition” opposing the environmental extremists who control state government. Thanks to the green lobby, farmers were hit with harsh, unaffordable new state controls, anti-sprawl measures devalued rural land values, natural gas mining (fracking) was rejected in favor of costly offshore windmills, and local governments were stripped of their zoning and land-use authority. There’s even a grassroots movement in five Western Maryland counties to secede and create a new state. Folks are angry about taxes, gun control, gay marriage, illegal immigration and repeal of the death penalty. Or perhaps Perry thinks Maryland voters are ready for what just happened in Colorado where three plumbers, using spraypainted lawn signs, started a voter recall effort that successfully unseated two liberal Democrats including the president of the state Senate, despite being outspent, 5 to 1, by wealthy gun control advocates. It was the first voter recall in Colorado history. And the Colorado uprising wasn’t just about gun control. The new state legislature, the most liberal in Colorado history, passed strict gun-control measures, doubled the renewable energy mandate for rural counties, permitted in-state tuitions for illegal aliens and tried to repeal the death penalty. Sound familiar? Nor was it a Tea Party rebellion. Both incumbents were defeated in Democratic districts where Democrats voted heavily while ignoring Bill Clinton’s robo calls. In the most Democratic district, the incumbent lost to her Republican replacement, a retired deputy police chief, by 12 percentage points. Or perhaps Gov. Perry saw through O’Malley’s selective data and happy face claims about Maryland’s fiscal status. O’Malley likes to cherry-pick statistics. For instance, he brags that Maryland “leads the nation in innovation and entrepre-

findings were reported to the state Board of Elections and the local offices in the form of challenges, and a separate report of just the identified deceased voters was sent to the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. These efforts received very little attention and no actual response. With regard to Maryland’s participation in the ERIC system linked to interstate cross checking of records, it should be noted that Maryland had the system well in advance of the 2012 election but, somehow “decided” not to implement crosscheck provisions before the presidential election. A little known fact is that the 2001 presidential election was won by fewer than 600 votes. Fraud does exist and it does matter. For every fraudulently cast vote, one legitimate vote gets erased. Election Integrity Maryland will therefore continue to crusade for free and fair elections in Maryland, thereby “assuring your vote.”

neurship.” True enough, in CNBC’s recent business climate rankings Maryland is ninth in “technology and innovation” (Texas is second). But the CNBC study has nine other categories including “cost of doing business” (Maryland ranks 41st) and “business friendliness” (Maryland ranks 45th). When CNBC averaged all 10 categories, Maryland ranked 40th nationally, Texas ranked second. Likewise, O’Malley is fond of boasting about Maryland’s AAA bond rating while neglecting Moody’s “negative outlook” due to Maryland’s “above average debt burden and large unfunded pension liabilities (double the median liability of other states).” Some of O’Malley’s fellow Marylanders share Moody’s concerns. Jerry Wit, chairman of Maryland Business for Responsive Government, a leading business organization, is calling on O’Malley to act because “Maryland’s problem of being an unfriendly state for business is a state problem, we need the state to take charge.” Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot agrees, calls Maryland’s economic recovery “anemic” and warns that new state revenues are coming in below estimates, especially income and sales taxes.” “We’re almost dead last in the country [in wage growth],” he says, and Maryland’s unemployment rate is 96 percent of the national rate, the highest level since the late 1990s. Franchot believes that Maryland’s progressive political agenda “is not fiscally responsible” because state revenues cannot keep pace with state government’s runaway spending levels. The problem in Annapolis, Franchot says, is, “If the House [of Delegates] wants to fund a program at $1 million, and the Senate wants to fund it at $2 million, they compromise and fund it at $3 million.” More rain on O’Malley’s victory parade but from a lifelong liberal Democrat who’s from Takoma Park, not Texas, and who’s not even running for president.

DeMatha lineman has big shoes to fill Ruble, Stags ready for Friday’s annual rivalry game against Good Counsel n



Brock Ruble burst into DeMatha Catholic High School football coach Elijah Brooks’ office with a big problem. Literally. Ruble tore his cleat during practice the previous day and he worried about finding a replacement before the team’s 2012 game against Our Lady of Good Counsel.

“What’s the big deal?” Brooks asked. “Just get another pair.” “Coach, there aren’t many size 20 cleats just at stores,” the 6-foot9, 310-pound offensive lineman said. “They take time to order.” Ever since Ruble’s feet grew to size 18 during eighth grade, his dad attempted to keep a backup pair of cleats ready in advance, knowing how difficult they were to procure. But at that point, Ruble had no alternative and was practicing in a shoe held together by tape. Brooks said they called “every store in the area.” “It became panic time,” Ruble said.

Finally, they found a pair on eBay that arrived just in time for that game. Unfortunately for Ruble, DeMatha lost, but he’s hoping the result will flip when the teams are scheduled meet at 7 p.m. Friday at the Prince George’s Sports & Learning Complex in Landover. Ruble and DeMatha will attempt to snap Good Counsel’s four-game winning streak in the rivalry, which includes Good Counsel claiming its fourth straight Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship with a win

Depending on when one happens to look at Oxon Hill High School football coach Craig Jefferies on the sideline, it’s understandable if one thinks he’s engaged in a rousing round of charades with his team instead of coaching a game. He furiously mimics scribbling on a notepad (his left hand serving as the piece of paper). He rolls his wrists as if beating on a drum. He points his arms and wrists in opposite directions, a move that would win him first prize if he were competing in a dance contest that played The Bangles’ “Walk Like and Egyptian” on a loop. What Jefferies is really doing — aside from reviving a program that one season before he took over recorded one win and was shut out five times — is delivering play calls to his Clippers as part of the newlyinstalled no-huddle offense. “Between me and the kids we came up with all the signals,” Jefferies said. “Sometimes I might come up with something they think is corny, so then they come up with things they want to do.” Inspired by what he’s learned throughout a longtime friendship with from former University of New Mexico coach and current University of Maryland, College Park offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, Jefferies is pleased with how his players have taken to the hurry-up approach. “The kids like it,” Jefferies said. “We haven’t gotten to the point where we can go turbo fast yet, but it’s still a little faster than most offenses.” Jefferies said he has noticed a significant increase in the number of plays the Clippers (2-1) have been able to run this season when compared to his first year. Speaking of last year, Oxon Hill already has matched its win total from the 2012 campaign and has scored more than half its total points from the year before (78 through three games compared to 124 through 10). To start every play, the Clippers’ offensive lineman rush to the ball after the referee spots it and they take their stance. They don’t move until the ball is snapped. Junior quarterback Anthony Dougherty, the running backs and the receivers then look toward Jefferies to watch the play call.

For a long time, the Prince George’s County high school boys’ soccer landscape was a lot like the county’s football landscape. Traditionallydominant teams jockeyed for playoff position and everyone else went along for the ride. Specifically, High Point and Bowie have been the two enduring forces over the past half decade. Much like in football, however, the County 4A League is quickly becoming more balanced and a tweak to the way the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association formats its

state tournament could provide even more intrigue as the season rolls along. This year, the state released a new alignment of the 4A South Region that breaks the 12 competing 4A schools in Prince George’s County into two sections: Section I and Section II. Section I consists of Bladensburg, DuVal, High Point, Laurel, Northwestern and Parkdale. Section II consists of Bowie, Charles H. Flowers, Henry A. Wise, Eleanor Roosevelt, Oxon Hill and Suitland. “I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing,” said Bowie coach Rich Kirkland, who is in his 25th year leading the Bulldogs. “We’ll have to see how it plays out.” With the new format, teams from within the same section play one another until one team remains. Then those two remaining clubs play

Continued from Page A-10 for the 4A South Region title and the right to advance to the state semifinals. “There’s a group of death up north and there’s us,” said 29thyear Roosevelt coach George Kallas of Section I. “I’m not sure whose geography they used to lay out the sections, but we’ll see what happens.” While the teams in both sections appear fairly balanced atfirst glance, is what Kallas said about the talent in Section I correct? Since 2008 — a span of five postseasons — Bowie has the most playoff wins of any county team with 12, thanks in large part to winning state titles in 2008 and 2011. High Point is a close second with 11, despite having not won a state championship. The next closest teams all have six wins during that span (Bladensburg, Northwestern and Roosevelt). Here’s where it gets interesting. The total number of postseason wins by the teams in Section I over the past five seasons is 34, 10 more than the 24 wins the teams in Section II have earned. And considering

that roughly half of Section II’s postseason wins in the past five seasons have come via two fivematch state championship runs by Bowie, it’s easy to see why coaches are so intrigued by the new format. And why Kallas was so complimentary of Section I. “These teams are always tough,” said High Point coach Michael Holt, whose team will likely face some stiff playoff competition. “We never take anything for granted and we always go in with the attitude that anyone can beat us at any time. We’ve got to be well-prepared and do what we have to do.” A prime example is when Flowers played High Point to a 1-1 draw Tuesday evening, becoming the first county team this season to earn a point against the Eagles. Flowers and Bladensburg are among the two up-and-coming county teams that could make the new format all the more interesting. Coupled with the fact that Bowie, admittedly, is having a down year and Northwestern lost many players from last year’s state semifinal squad, both sections appear wide open a quarter of the way through the regular season.

and we catch them off guard a lot. It’s great.” On Oxon Hill’s opening drive of last week’s 27-0 loss against Henry A. Wise, it was clear the no-huddle still had some kinks to work out. The Clippers were flagged for a false start on back-to-back snaps and there were a number of busted plays. It was also apparent that the tempo and pacing with which Dougherty snapped the ball bothered the Pumas’ defense. Wise jumped offsides a staggering five times on the opening drive and the defense

Maryland, North Carolina State, Ohio State and Tennessee. First, he narrowed his focus at DeMatha. Ruble nearly quit football as a sophomore to focus on basketball. But while attending an Amateur Athletic Union basketball tournament the summer prior to watch his son, Ruble’s dad happened to meet a col-

was penalized 13 times overall. “They’re very organized and can take you out of the flow of the game,” Wise coach DaLawn Parrish said. “For them not getting in the huddle, you’re on the line for a long time while they’re communicating. “[Jefferies] should be proud. Give him a couple more [years] and they’ll really be good. They’re definitely going to compete and not lay down.” Jefferies isn’t afraid to throw the ball, either — something that hasn’t necessarily been a staple of Prince

lege football scout whose son was also playing. When Ruble’s dad pointed out his own son, the scout remarked Brock had the body of a Division I football recruit. When he heard the assessment, Brock decided to give football one more try. Until the playoffs, Ruble’s season high was four snaps in

George’s County football. But against the Pumas, Dougherty, who said he studies his playbook and hand signals an average of two hours a night, passed an astounding 31 times out of 55 plays. More than the offense is changing at Oxon Hill. A new school building is currently in use with a massive new stadium not far behind. Jefferies, who led a very successful program at Dunbar (D.C.) for 15 seasons, went 126-48-1 and developed a wealth of future National Football League talent, said he’s confident Oxon Hill can turn around for

a game — and one was a kneeldown play. But in a WCAC semifinal loss to Gonzaga, the starting left tackle went down, and Ruble stepped in and played well, reaffirming his decision not to quit football. “OtherthangoingtoDeMatha in the first place,” said Ruble, who commutes an hour and 15 minutes each way from his home near

good once the Clippers get that “signature win.” “It’s hard to instill the concept that they can win or they’re gonna win,” Jefferies said. “For the last three or four years, they haven’t had that. None of these guys on this team have been winners. So we’ve got to get these guys to believe they can win and go out and execute.” And, true to form, Jefferies and the Clippers appear to be doing so much faster than the average team.

La Plata, “I think deciding not to do that has been one of the best decisions of my life.” The next year, Ruble gave up baseball to focus on football. By that time, he had already shown a keen understanding of football, even though he occasionally missed team functions due to basketball and baseball. “I don’t know if he would

be this successful if he wasn’t as smart,” Brooks said. “He’s forced to split his time, and a lot of times, he’s playing catchup. But it makes it easier, because he’s a bright kid. He’s an intelligent player. He really understands concepts. I think he could end up being a coach when his playing days are over.”

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 or you can fax to 301-314-9533. 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.

Richard DelGrande, 29, of Silver Spring, is a scarecrow at Field of Screams.



Field of Screams/Scream City STAFF WRITER

t’s about that time again. The air gets a little chilly and folks are a little more susceptible to a good fright. … Boo! OK, maybe not that susceptible, but a good haunted house, field or even a hospital can make things downright creepy for the most stoic of Halloween fans. This year, Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in Maryland and Fairfax County in Virginia are filled with things that go bump in the night. Here is just a small sampling of what’s around. Be sure to visit our website at for updated haunted attractions in the area.

(4501 Olney-Laytonsville Road., Olney, now through Nov. 2, $10 - $84) — One of the great things about

this time of year is the selection of different scares horror enthusiasts get to enjoy. At Field of Screams, folks can choose from a haunted hayride, a haunted house, a haunted trail or a haunted paintball apocalypse with zombies — any way you look at it, it’s haunting!

Feed me, Seymour n

Theater company gets to the root of comedy-horror hybrid BY



Hannah Thornhill as Audrey and Nathan Bowen as Seymour in 2nd Star Productions’ “Little Shop of Horrors.”

Asked to think of the most memorable leading men of the 1980s, names like Tom Cruise and Patrick Swayze probably come to mind. But Rick Moranis? Ask actor Nathan Bowen and Moranis deserves a spot on that list. “Rick Moranis is an iconic actor of that time period,” Bowen said. Starting Friday, Bowen will star as Sey-

mour in the 2nd Star Production version of “Little Shop of Horrors,” a role Moranis played in the 1986 film adaptation of the musical. “I grew up watching the movie and always loved it,” Bowen said. “I always wanted to be in the show and be that role ...” Seymour is a dweeby florist in New York with a crush on his co-worker, the beautiful and blonde Audrey (Hannah Thornhill). “He’s kind of the meek little guy who’s always wanted the girl who works at the flower shop,” Bowen said. “The underdog aspect appeals to me.”

scale Rodgers and Hammerstein shows. But due to a recent shift in programming, this fall seemed like the perfect time to stage the off-beat musical. “2nd Star has wanted to do this show for a long time, but we’ve always had a September show and a November show and neither of those are appropriate times for ‘Little Shop of Horrors,’” Wingard said. “It’s not the way to kick off the Christmas season.” But it’s the perfect way to kick of the Halloween season. So with an October slot this year, Wingard and the 2nd Star board settled on “Little Shop.” Wingard, who does much of the set design and construction herself, said 2nd Star prides itself on its professional-looking sets. In fact, the company was awarded a 2013 WATCH Award for Outstanding Achievement in Set Painting in a Play. “We give [the productions] the most professional set we can within the realm of the Bowie Playhouse,” Wingard said. “It has qualities of a Broadway production just scaled down ...” But despite its accolades, when it came to the “Little Shop of Horrors” main attraction, Audrey II, the carnivorous plant, 2nd Star left it to the experts.

“We contemplated building the puppet but our studio is an un-air-conditioned warehouse,” Wingard said. “We decided that renting the puppet would be a more prudent way to go.” 2nd Star is renting Audrey II from Intermission Productions in California. When it came to her human characters, Wingard said she encouraged the cast to put their own twist or spin on their roles. “We don’t try to copy ...” Wingard said. “Most people will not look at the original production until afterward.” “When I was learning how to act, I was always told not to duplicate,” added Thornhill. “Theater is live ... it’s not going to be the same every night.” A Bowie resident, Thornhill has appeared in 50 different productions in the Washington, D.C., area since 1997. Despite Wingard’s urging to make the character his own, Bowen said he can’t help but channel some Moranis into his portrayal of Bowen. “I definitely hear him saying the lines when I’m saying them,” Bowen said. “He’s the basis for the character work I’ve done.”

Prince George’s County Six Flags America Fright Fest (13710 Central Ave., Largo,

$34.99-$49.99, 301-249-1500) — Evil clowns, terrifying roller coasters and sinister zombies … what else do you need for a great Halloween? Six Flag America’s yearly Fright Fest has more events than you could possibly shake a full bag of candy at — from the time you walk into the park until the time you leave. The festivities begin on Saturday and run through Oct. 27, so get your goosebumps before it’s over. (4101 Crain Highway, Bowie, $15 in advance, $17 at the gate) — What’s scarier than a haunted house? How about a haunted minor league baseball stadium? Have you ever been inside a baseball stadium when no one was there? It can be a little creepy. Tack on the ghosts that haunt the place and yeah, you’ll have nightmares. That’s pretty much what the folks at Prince George’s Stadium are going for. The Tulip Gulch’s Nightmares Haunted House, which they rate a PG-13 experience, features live actors and takes about 20 minutes to walk through — 20 minutes of evil! Gates open at 6:30 p.m. and the show runs until 11 p.m. The haunted house is Nightmares

entirely indoors so you don’t have to worry about the rain. The event starts on Oct. 4 and runs every Friday and Saturday from then until Oct. 26, and then Halloween night until Nov. 2. Haunted Hangar (College Park Aviation Museum, 1985 Cpl. Frank Scott Drive, College Park, 301-864-6029, Oct. 26, $4, $3 seniors 60+, $2 ages 2-18, 1 and under free) — Halloween fun can be had by all at the College Park Aviation Museum. The Haunted Hangar event, from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m., will have arts and crafts, hayrides and spooky fun for the whole family.

Montgomery County Markoff’s Haunted Forest

(19120 Martinsburg Road, Dickerson, 301-216-1248, Oct. 4-5, 11-12, 17-19, 24-26, Oct. 31 to Nov. 2, $20 and up) — Much like the hot sauces with the little skull and crossbones on the label, you’ll have to sign a waiver to wander through Markoff’s Haunted Forest. You don’t have to be a connoisseur of the macabre to enjoy your time there, however. Markoff’s will have everything from zip-lines, strongman challenges, concessions, high wire acts, carnival games and flaming flying Frisbees. Careful with that last one! Fall Frolic (Glen Echo Park,

7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo, 301-634-2222, Oct. 27, admission is free) — While some enjoy the heart-stopping shrieks from ghosts and ghouls, others prefer their spookiness to be as minimal as possible, especially if there are children involved. Glen Echo Park has you covered with its Fall Frolic. Visitors of all ages are invited to participate in Halloween activities, crafts and even a costume parade. Adults might enjoy visiting the park’s open studios and galleries. There is a small fee for pumpkin decorating ($1) and face painting ($1-$2). Otherwise the event is free and runs from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. Halloween at the Medical Museum (National Museum of

Health and Medicine, 2500 Linden Lane, Silver Spring, 301-3193303, Oct. 26, free) — Contrary to what some adults might say, Halloween really is a great time of year for children. The folks over at the National Museum of Health and Medicine understand that some children might be intrigued by the “creepiness” of skulls! The museum invites children and family members of all ages to participate in an evening dedicated to all things skulls.

$30) Billed as the biggest Halloween theme park in Northern Virginia, Terrorville has several terrifying attractions, and they also have the ever-popular Zombie Paintball Shoot ($30), the Walk of Terror, which features a hayride ($20), and Monster Encounter ($5) which is touted as a kid-friendly experience. Blood and Guts Run (Bull Run Regional Park, 7700 Bull Run Dr., Centreville, Va., 571969-4887, Oct. 26, $79 plus $5.34 fee) Well, if you’re going to run away from zombies, you might as well get some exercise while you’re at it. The Blood and Guts Run is a 5K obstacle course where runners will have to overcome the obstacles as well as dodge zombies. Did you enjoy shooting the zombies with the paintballs? Well, here they get to shoot you with water guns filled with fake blood. Ha! But if you make it through alive — from the zombies, as well as the actual running — you’ll get a custom T-shirt and a medal.

Ghost train rides will be going on from 11:15 a.m. until 5:45 p.m. on Oct. 26-27. The Great Pumpkin, I hear, might make an

In the hands of a vengeful dad in ‘Prisoners’ BY


Classy trash, “Prisoners” opens with a scene of holy sacrifice, the first of many violent acts sanctified as virtuous — necessary — by an increasingly grotesque narrative. In the Pennsylvania woods, a carpenter

played by Hugh Jackman guides his quiet teenage son (Dylan Minnette) in the killing of his first deer. A prayer is uttered. A shot is fired. The carpenter, named Keller Dover, is a true believer in the Lord, and he gets results. Times are neither flush nor terrible, but Keller scrapes to make his mortgage payments.

He is a righteous man living for better circumstances. They do not come. The story moves to Thanksgiving dinner. He and his wife, played by Maria Bello, visit their neighbors for the traditional meal. Their hosts are a step up the socioeconomic ladder. Terrence Howard and Viola Davis play the Birches, who, like the Dovers, have a preteen daughter. The girls, who are friends, disappear near the home. At first they seem more misplaced than lost. A frantic search ensues. No one is found. The police are brought in. Jake Gyllenhaal plays a loner detective named Loki who goes by the book, wearily, for a while, until he’s goaded into action by Keller. The rest of “Prisoners,” which is an extremely well-made thriller dressed up in a few ambiguities for show, follows Keller

parents sick, which is why most films (this one included) take pains to offer relief and solace through extreme brutality en route to a conclusion. Nothing’s bad enough for the perps of a novel or film such as “Mystic River,” which “Prisoners” resembles somewhat, though at its creepiest and most ambitious the film more strongly evokes David Fincher’s “Zodiac.” “Prisoners” casts such an effectively sustained mood of dread in its first hour, you hardly notice the familiarity of the mystery cliches and, in particular, the overstressing of one clue that renders a subsequent major plot revelation less than revelatory. Paul Dano worms around as Alex, the chief suspect in the case, a mentally challenged boy-man whose RV was seen near the site of the girls’ disappearance. Loki books him on suspicion but cannot hold him for lack of evidence. This allows Keller to become judge, jury and potential executioner in the story, kidnapping Alex (who knows more than he’s telling) and handcuffing him to a grungy apartment bathroom sink, away from the prying eyes of the law. The torturous beatings commence, with and without instruments of pain in Keller’s meaty hands. They’re tough to watch. We’re not meant to disapprove. Dano has played so many shifty, unpleasant ferrets in his career, the casting of this actor in this sort of part is shorthand for “he has it coming, no matter what.” Director Denis Villeneuve is the star here, and he finds truth even in the junk aspects of “Prisoners.” The Quebecois filmmaker’s work includes the

remarkable “Incendies,” and in “Prisoners,” which was shot in Georgia, he works closely with cinematographer Roger Deakins (making digital look nearly as rich and foreboding as film stock) to create a series of scenes, interior and exterior, that are grim trials of a parent’s soul. Eventually the plot throws in everything from puzzle pieces to actual serpents and, because Loki (named, oddly, for the Norse god of trickery) isn’t much of a character, Jackman’s Keller dominates the proceedings. He’s our Mr. Everyman with a hammer, so sturdy of body and stalwart of earnest spirit, Keller’s righteousness is never long in doubt. Around the midpoint, screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski’s story starts layering in the red herrings and widening the circle of sleaze. Throughout this beautifully made, slightly specious exercise in Old Testament revenge, the character-study aspects of “Prisoners” coexist intriguingly with the grisly-inhumanity components. Some will take it and like it, all the way to the heart of darkness. Others may feel they’ve been jacked with, manipulated. Villeneuve collaborates with unusual sensitivity with his actors. The script operates on one level; the interpreters on another, higher level.

Called “Public Art Concepts: An Exhibit of Proposals,” the free exhibit opens Friday, Sept. 27, and closes Nov. 22. On the evening of Sept. 27, Joe’s will also host a free discussion by a panel of participating artists and representatives from agencies that award grants for public projects. “We’re bringing all this that artists do outside, inside,” said curator Nehemiah Dixon III, who is visual arts coordinator at Joe’s. Included in the proposals by 10 artists are drawings, scale models, letters to agencies and other materials that go into making an effective pitch for funding. “I didn’t expect the level of care,” said Dixon about the extent of work involved. “They’re beautiful,” he said about their artistic elements. Dixon said the idea for the exhibit originated with artist and sculptor Alonzo Davis. “It was about a year ago, and he said, ‘Wouldn’t it be a good idea to exhibit the proposals?’” Dixon said. In recent years, local public art projects have increased, including a mural at a funeral home, painting of the post office and a project at a skate park in the Mount Rainier area. “There’s been a trend – it’s been happening faster than I can keep up with,” he said. “The [Route 1] corridor didn’t look the same after all this,” said Dixon. Brooke Kidd, founder and executive director of Joe’s Movement Emporium, said she is glad to host the exhibit, which is sponsored by Art Lives Here. Art Lives Here is a campaign

how the clay changes through freezing and thawing cycles. “It’s asking people to pay attention to [what is] a pretty cool and interesting process,” Boozer said. The idea is that by being observant and seeing things from different perspectives, a person’s life can be enriched by different or deeper understandings of things. “Dirt is commonplace, and it’s everywhere, but if you shift your perspective, you can find it interesting,” she said.

Nehemiah Dixon III, visual arts coordinator at Joe’s Movement Emporium in Mount Rainier, hangs pieces for the upcoming exhibit, “Public Art Concepts: An Exhibit of Proposals.” The show, curated by DIxon, offers a behind-the-scenes look at the process for artists in creating art for public spaces.

A piece by Mount Rainier artist Margaret Boozer shows a letter of proposal, design drawing and a small scale model of the public art project she is currently installing on 39th Street in Mount Rainier.



by artists and businesses to boost the visibility of the Gateway Arts and Entertainment District along Route 1 through North Brentwood, Brentwood, Mount Rainier and Hyattsville. “It’s a tremendous project – we’re really glad to have it here,” Kidd said. One of the artists in the Public Art Concepts exhibit is Margaret Boozer, who owns the Red Dirt Studio in Mount Rainier. Boozer creates works with clay and earth, fascinated by their colors, textures and other properties. Her proposal at Joe’s is about an outdoor piece called “Frost Weathering” that she is currently installing outside the Gateway Arts Center building at Rhode Island Ave. and 39th Street in Brentwood. “I do think it’s useful for people to see how artists make an idea visible before a thing exists,” she said about her drawing and scale model in the exhibit. “I also think it’s important for artists to see it, to learn from each other how they do it,” she said. Proposals are critical, because unless they make a clear impression, the artist is not likely to win a grant over competitors. “You have invested the money, time and resources … but it might not come back to you [as a grant],” she said. For the outdoor piece, Boozer is placing a thick slab of local clay on an 18-foot steel shelf that is bolted into an outdoor cement wall near the 39th Street Gallery. People can see it from a path above the wall or from the street. Bisecting the long slab is a porcelain vein that will trigger stress cracks over time. Viewed over 20 years or more, the geologic piece is intended to show
