Gaithersburg man pleads guilty in murder-for-hire Ph.D recipient asked undercover cop to kill ex-wife n

BY

DANIEL LEADERMAN STAFF WRITER

Prosecutors say a man who tried to hire someone to kill his ex-wife may have been well-spoken and educated, but was really “a wolf in sheep’s clothing” with a violent past. On Friday, Ndokey Peter Enow, 38, of Swan Stream Court in Gaithersburg, pleaded guilty to one count of solicitation to commit first-degree murder, a charge which can draw a penalty of life in prison. Attorneys on both sides

Candlewood Elementary School reopens after more than a year of construction SAMANTHA SCHMIEDER STAFF WRITER

After 18 months of construction and renovations, Candlewood Elementary School in Derwood reopened its doors for students’ first day back on Monday, Jan. 5, and promptly closed its doors for an unexpected snow day on Tuesday, Jan. 6. “I think the students were so excited. A couple of the students had said to me, ‘We didn’t want a snow day right away, we wanted to be in our school!’”

said Principal Linda B. Sheppard. Sheppard, her staff and students started the new year in their old school, leaving behind Emory Grove in Gaithersburg, the temporary spot they had been attending during construction, and welcoming their beautifully upgraded building. “Basically, [Candlewood] was an old school,” Sheppard said. “It was just a one-story, small, circular building. The heating system was getting older; we started to get leaks in the building.” Sheppard said the new building is

“Northwest High is the most studied school in the county,” jokes Suzanne Borenzweig, program coordinator for the Germantown school’s unique Ulysses program. “Every year we study ourselves,” said Borenzweig, who oversees the four-year program in which seniors do a semester-long research project that can involve polling fellow students. The projects enable students to ask and answer their own questions, which typically arise from their own lives and experiences. “We offer guidance and structure to help them turn whatever interest they may have into an academic project,”

The Montgomery County Council has passed a new bidding and selection process for before- and after-school child care providers that operate in public schools. Some council members, however, are developing a larger plan for early child care and education in the county. They want to create a county child care office and ensure appropriate training and other services for Spanish-speaking providers. Under the new regulation, which went into effect Jan. 3, a public school that has or is looking for a child care provider will go through a selection

Police look to identify owner of Gaithersburg police to launch abandoned puppy in Burtonsville body camera pilot program Young pit bull was found to be underweight, having seizures in dirty crate

BY JENN DAVIS STAFF WRITER

BY JENN DAVIS STAFF WRITER

Montgomery County Police Department’s Animal Services Division is appealing to the public for information to find out who abandoned a puppy in a Burtonsville parking lot earlier this month. The young pit bull, believed to be about six to seven weeks old, was found on Jan. 3 in a dirty crate in a parking lot in the 4200 block of Tazewell Terrace, according to a release from the Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center. The Derwood shelter rescued the dog after receiving a call about his situation at its Emergency Call Center, said Katherine Zenzano, the facility’s community outreach coordinator. Named Clark Kent by shelter staff, the puppy was discovered to be underweight and experiencing seizures with no apparent underlying medical cause other than malnutrition, the release said. “The puppy was found moments from death in a dirty crate in a parking lot on Tazewell Terrace in Burtonsville,” said Jack Breckenridge, the lead investigator on the case. “The puppy

Depending on the investigation, this may be considered a misdemeanor or felony. Clark Kent is currently in foster care with a shelter staff

member, Zenzano said. He will be made available for adoption once the case has closed and he is given medical clearance, she added. Anyone with information about this case can contact Crime Solvers of Montgomery County and remain anonymous.

Cameras will be used for training only

(301)288-6009

Gaithersburg police officers will soon be wearing body cameras during training exercises as part of the department’s effort to test the technology to determine if it would be effective in the field. Police Chief Mark Sroka told the Gaithersburg City Council on Jan. 5 that the department is in the process of purchasing five body-worn cameras for a one-year pilot program that will involve the use of the cameras for training purposes only. More specifically, the cameras will be used for training that relates to use of force, such as firearms and Taser training. “These cameras are going to enable us to document our training curriculum and serve as a tool where the instructors can critique the officers at the time of the reality-based situational scenario training to simulate what occurs on the street,” Sroka said. “It’s one thing to tell [the officers] what they did right and an area that may need improvement, but it’s another thing to be able to go ahead and show them in that video.” During the one-year period, Sroka said the department will evaluate the capabilities and limitations of the cameras to see

“...This is not going to solve our problems. Good police work solves our problems.” Henry Marraffa, Councilman whether they should ultimately be issued to uniformed and plainclothes officers in the field. The total cost for the five cameras and data management needs, training and additional fees is expected to be about $11,269, said Sroka. The program is likely to begin this February. If officers in the field are required to wear body cameras in the future, Sroka said there must be a “clear, formulated” policy that outlines the types of situations that will be recorded and the types that will not, such as cases of sexual assault and domestic violence. “I don’t believe that this camera is a fix for police excessive force throughout this country. I think it’s a tool that could be used in furtherance of enhanced police accountability and oversight,” Sroka said. He added that the technology could also help defend officers that are falsely accused of misconduct.

Subway

The discussion to try out body cameras first started about two years ago, Sroka said. In addition, recent events across the country involving allegations of police excessive force has made this topic timely, he said. “I fully support it as long as there is sound policy governing its use, the management of data, and the dissemination of data, Sroka said. All members of the City Council expressed their support for the pilot program, but many said it’s important to keep in mind that the cameras are not a cure-all fix. “This is another tool,” said Councilman Henry Marraffa. “This is not going to solve our problems. Good police work solves our problems.” Knowing the high level of training and professionalism in the force, Councilman Mike Sesma said he was “confident” that body cameras could be implemented and used effectively by the department. “I think where the tool has been implemented effectively and successfully it’s shown to reduce activities in which extreme force is involved,” he said. “It has a calming effect both on the public that the police encounter and the police encountering the public, so it protects both the public and the police officers.” jedavis@gazette.net

Diamond Elementary names media center for former principal Lange held school’s highest post for 16 years n

BY JENN DAVIS STAFF WRITER

It was an evening of memories, laughter and tears as members of the Diamond Elementary School community came together Monday to recognize former principal Carol Lange and name the school’s media center in her honor. Around 100 people packed the new Carol Lange Media Center to pay tribute to the administrator who led their Gaithersburg school for 16 years, from 1998 until 2014. Lange, who retired at the end of last school year, worked for Montgomery County Public Schools for a total of 26 years. She started her

career in education working as a library/media specialist. “I cannot say thank you enough tonight to each and every one of you,” Lange said at the event. “It’s very, very, very humbling for me to have this honor bestowed on me.” At the dedication, Lange talked about the challenges she and the school community faced during her tenure as principal — including inconsistent student performance, growing enrollment, increasing diversity and inclusion in the classroom — and how they worked together as a team to overcome them. “I’m so grateful to each and every single one of you for the part you’ve played in my story,” she said. Beth Kennington, the mom of four children who have all

graduated from Diamond, said she was the one who first proposed that the media center be named after Lange. She and others in the community petitioned the school district to change the library’s moniker. “[Lange] is a special person,” Kennington said. “We wanted to do something lasting.” In her formal remarks at the dedication ceremony, Kennington thanked Lange for her hard work and leadership. “Carol Lange epitomizes the excellence, care and professionalism in education,” she said. “With Carol at the helm, Diamond went from being a good school to being a great school, one that’s sought out by people moving to the area because of its high marks and its great reputation. For that, this community is thankful and it’s proud.”

Daniel Walder, the current Diamond Elementary principal, said Lange helped him to become the type of leader he is today since he worked under her guidance as a principal intern from 2007 to 2009. As a result of Lange’s meaningful contributions to the school community, Walder said naming the media center after her was appropriate and well-deserved. “If you know Carol Lange, you know that she does not expect to be in the spotlight or gain attention for her work,” Walder said. “However, Mrs. Lange, your dedication and commitment to the Diamond community over the past 16 years needs to be remembered forever.”

CANDLEWOOD

Continued from Page A-1 Sheppard said was built in 1968, there also were some other new perks, including a new playground, soccer field, gym and courtyard. Overall, Sheppard believes it cost about $23 million. “[The students] are just a little upset now because they can’t get to their new playground equipment and soccer field,” Sheppard said, adding that they will be put to good use in the spring. Sheppard said the school has some great new technologies, a larger multipurpose room and “general spaces for small group instruction.” The building also

has some special classrooms specifically designed to accommodate autism programs, which Sheppard said could draw those programs to the school. “We currently have 330 students, but we are going to grow because there is new development going up around us. We will get those students,” Sheppard said. Following Candlewood Elementary School, students will attend Shady Grove Middle School in Gaithersburg for grades six through eight and then Magruder High School in Rockville for grades nine through twelve. On Jan. 7, the school hosted an open house at night to allow students and future students as

well as members of the community see what was done. “We had over 400 people attend. I was so surprised. We had current students and families, we had families who no longer have children here, but live in the neighborhood and wanted to see the school,” Sheppard said. Sheppard said a couple came to see the school because their child would be attending and when Sheppard asked where the child was, the woman pointed to her stomach. “Their child won’t be here for five years, but they were so excited they came to see,” Sheppard said.

ENOW

child. Enow approached a man working as a mechanic in the Washington, D.C. area in 2014, tellingthemanhewasfriendofthe man’s boss, and tried to hire him to kill the woman, Feinstein said. The mechanic, however, was a former narcotics informant in another jurisdiction. He told Enow he wouldn’t do the job, but could put him in touch with a friend who could. The mechanic reached out to one of his law enforcement contacts, who got in touch with Montgomery County police, Feinstein said. On June 6, Enow met with an undercover county police officer in a Silver Spring parking lot and offered him $1,000 to murder the woman. Enow provided pictures of her and even drove the officer to her neighborhood to point out where she lived, according to charging documents. In an audio recording of that conversation, Enow — who mentions that he recently earned a Ph.D in cybersecurity — tells the officer that he married the woman because she had threatened to kill herself if he did not. He then says she falsely accused him of raping and beating her. A copy of the recording was provided by the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office. “She put me in jail twice,” Enow says in the recording. He later asks the officer to either cripple her or kill her. “Either six feet under, or a wheelchair,” Enow says, adding that it might be better to take her “completely out” so he could get his daughter back. Montgomery County Judge Steven G. Salant accepted the plea agreement, and is scheduled to sentence Enow on Feb. 27, when Enow’s ex-wife will give a statement. Enow’s attorney, Howard Cheris, declined to comment after the hearing Friday.

Full council votes Jan. 20 on site VIRGINIA TERHUNE STAFF WRITER

The three-member County Council committee for Transportation, Infrastructure, Energy and Environment on Monday endorsed the county’s intent to use its power of emi-

CHILD CARE

Continued from Page A-1 provision that, unless the council acts, will end the regulation in one year. The original version of the executive regulation was met with concerns — including from parents and child care provider staff and leaders — during an October public hearing and in written testimony. The concerns were in part tied to parent participation, quality standards and whether the new process was similar to the previous process. The County Council’s

nent domain to take part of the Yegher farm in Clarksburg. The county needs the land for easements to complete the extension of Snowden Farm Parkway from Clarksburg Village east to Md. 27 (Ridge Road). Clarksburg Village developer Elm Street Development will build the extension for $23 million, pending final approval by the full council on Jan. 20, said Clarksburg Village project

manager Kate Kubit. The four-lane divided road will extend from Emerald Green Drive southeast across Morning Star Drive, the Yegher driveway and the soon-to-be-developed Butz property to connect with Md. 27. Occupants of the Yegher property will use Snowden Farm Parkway to enter and exit their site. The extension will serve as

the eastern entrance to Clarksburg Village, a community of about 2,700 housing units. Elm Street Development will be responsible for widening Md. 27 from Snowden Farm Parkway south to Brink Road, Kubit said. The extension also will serve the yet-to-be-developed Butz property at the northwest corner of Md. 27 and Brink Road.

joint Health and Human Services and Education Committee recommended changes that addressed a number of the concerns. During a Nov. 25 meeting, some council members supported trying the regulation for one year and continuing to look at the process. “We have not, I think, satisfactorily brought the parties together and we’re continuing to hear a very broad call from our provider community that they need a stronger voice in the process and that we have more work to do in order to have a successful management process,” Councilman

Hans Riemer said. County Councilwoman Nancy Navarro said in an interview that she and Riemer (D-At Large) of Takoma Park are working on a larger initiative to better coordinate and improve early child care and education in the county. Navarro (D-Dist. 4) of Silver Spring said one bill would create a county office focused on “all things related to child care,” including training, mentoring and technical assistance. The legislation also would change the county’s regulation of the use of public space. A second bill will focus

on ensuring quality family child care, Navarro said. The county would offer services — such as training and mentoring — “in a culturally competent way” for family child care providers, she said, noting the county’s large number of Spanish-speaking family child care providers. Shaun Rose, who told the council he opposed the original regulation, is on the executive board of the Montgomery County Commission on Child Care. Rose said he’s encouraged by Navarro’s and Riemer’s plans to make child care “a higher priority” in the county. The new regulation’s process, however, is flawed, he said. “I think the way the county has it structured is the essential problem,” he said. Rose also is president of the Rock Spring Children’s Center, which does not operate in public space. He said the process is not run by child care and early education professionals who understand the “challenging” and “rapidly changing” field. Rose also said that rebidding a space every several years doesn’t match the child care community’s emphasis on “consistency” and “stability.” The regulation needs to require, rather than encourage, participation on the selection committees from parents who use a current provider, said Debbie Diederichsen, director of growth and development for Bar-T. The agency runs child care programs in 30 county schools. The regulation says a parent using the current child care services at school should have a seat on a provider selection committee. “I think it’s very important for people who are using the service to have a voice in what’s going on,” she said. “I certainly would not want somebody else making that decision for me and my child.”

Obituary Virginia Vivian Allen, 92, of Gaithersburg, MD, formerly of Rockville, MD, passed away January 2, 2015 at the home of her daughter, Sherrill VanOrsdel. Born June 21, 1922 in Steubenville, Ohio, she was the daughter of James and Elva Kerr. She trained for a career in nursing at Jefferson Medical School in Philadelphia, PA. She went immediately to serve her nation as an Army nurse in England during WWII. It was here that she met and later married her husband, the late John Henry Allen, Jr. He was one of her patients – one of her more challenging patients. She continued her nursing career at Walter Reed Army Medical Center providing private duty nursing care. Following this she worked in geriatric nursing as a private care nurse in Washington DC, head of nursing services at the US Army Distaff Hall, the Hebrew Home of Washington, DC and the Bel Pre Nursing Center, Silver Spring, MD. She concluded her career as head of disaster preparedness for the National Capital Region, Red Cross – Silver Spring. Virginia was a devoted member of St John’s Episcopal Church in Olney, MD. In recent years she worshiped with family at Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg, MD. She loved her grandchildren, she loved playing bridge with her husband John, and she loved swimming, having her pool built while John was away on training for work. She proudly worked on her sun tan each year by floating in the pool and swimming 20 laps, several times a week, well into her 80s. Predeceased by her parents and husband, John Henry Allen,Jr, Virginia is survived by her daughter, Sherrill M. VanOrsdel; son, John R. Allen; sister, Betty Ann Gossert; grandchildren Robert, IV, Ryan, Reed and Brett VanOrsdel and William and Amanda Allen and Amy (Allen) Foss; and 7 great grandchildren, Reed Jr, Sean Marie, Riley, Morgen, Colin, Kerry, and Simmons Marie VanOrsdel. A memorial service is being planned to be held at Covenant Life Church, 7501 Muncaster Mill Road, Gaithersburg, MD 20877, on January 24th at 10:30 am. Interment services will be held at a later date at Arlington National Cemetery, where she will be buried along with her husband, John.

Germantown IT firm launches website for students Planet Technologies of Germantown, working with the Maryland State Department of Education, has developed a private and secure website through which students and their families can register to download Office 365 ProPlus for free. The site allows students to install up to five copies of the latest Microsoft Office suite for their PCs and Macs and up to five copies for their tablets and phones, according to a company news release. The website is https://marylandaccess.education.

Auto executive sues father, company Tamara “Tammy” Darvish of Potomac, the face of the Darcars auto dealerships and the first woman to chair the Washington Area New Auto Dealers Association, is suing her father, John R. Darvish Sr., and the company he founded, charging that he reneged on the one-third ownership he promised her, The Washington Post reported. In the 19-page suit, filed Friday in Montgomery County Circuit Court, Darvish, 51, claims she refused a request by her two half brothers, John and Jamie, that she sign a “side agreement” that would have given the brothers effective control over the company. They then “began pressuring their elderly father to cut Tammy out of the business completely,” according to the suit. In March, the suit claims, her father told her he was turning over Darcars to her brothers and she was being removed from her management position. “Shortly thereafter, Tammy was asked to clean out her desk and was stripped of her authority and responsibilities as executive vice president,” the suit alleges. Tammy Darvish is seeking Darcars shares worth one-third of the value of the privately held New Carrollton company. In a phone interview Friday, Dar-

vish, 51, said, “It’s unfortunate now, after 30 years, my father doesn’t want to live up to written and oral commitments he made regarding the succession plan.” A spokesman for the John Darvish Sr. family said in a statement that it had not seen the lawsuit and therefore could not address the allegations. “They are of course saddened to learn Tammy has taken this route. Mr. Darvish Sr. and his sons had hoped she would continue to represent and advocate for the Darcars brand. They love Tammy and know that the family will work through this difficult time,” the statement read. Darcars Automotive has more than 30 franchises at 20 locations, with a regional collision repair center and more than $1 billion in annual revenues.

Female a cappella group Misbehavin’ Maidens performs in Silver Spring

n

Singing bawdy ballads and mischievous melodies with titles like “Cathouse Tragedy,” the all-women a cappella group Misbehavin’ Maidens isn’t exactly the Boswell Sisters. “We’re more of an R-rated version,” said Caroline Boulden, a retail manager by day who goes by the stage name Saber Tompson. Their style is best summed up as “nerdy and dirty,” said Annie Lynsen, a content analyst for a web development firm, aka “Lucky” Annie LeBlanc. It could also be called “filk music,” a genre tied to science fiction and fantasy fandom. The Maidens, who perform at Silver Spring area venues and elsewhere, raised about $5,000 in the initial day last week on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter for its first CD album. That was well more than the group’s initial goal of $3,000 for the month-long fundraiser, which runs online through Feb. 4. As of Friday afternoon, the group had raised almost $5,546 from 139 investors. “We’re absolutely blown away” by the response, said Lynsen, who lived in Silver Spring from 2005 until 2012 and now lives in Laurel. The group’s initial goal was $3,000, which members say will allow them to record six songs. The $5,000 level allows them to bump it up to 10 songs. If they reach $7,000, they can record a 12-song album, while $10,000 will enable them to make a professional music video. They plan to work out of a local studio in Silver Spring, Rockville or Beltsville, and hope to release the album by June, Boulden said. She formerly lived in Silver Spring and now lives in Kensington with another group member, Jenn Burrell, aka Rouge O’Malley.

Charles R. Joseph, 56, of Erwin, N.C., former executive director of the Wheaton-Kensington Chamber of Commerce, died Jan. 7 at the Kitty Askins Hospice Center in Goldsboro, N.C. Joseph was born and grew up in North Carolina, graduating from the University of North Carolina Wilmington in 1980. He was executive director of the Wheaton-Kensington chamber from 1998 to 2004 after serving on its board since 1991. He also was a supported employment specialist at St. Luke’s House, now Cornerstone Montgomery, according to the chamber. He also was a member of Wheaton Masonic Lodge 228. Survivors include his wife, Aldona Joseph of Columbia; two sons, William A. Joseph and Nicholas S. Joseph, both of Columbia; a sister, Kathy Joseph Peay of Clinton, N.C.; his stepmother, Mary Joseph of Dunn, N.C.; and a stepbrother, Kevin Williams of Godwin, N.C. The funeral was held Friday. Contributions may be made in his memory to the Maryland Masonic Homes, 300 International Circle, Cockeysville, MD 21030. — GAZETTE STAFF

The fourth member, Erin Hamilton, aka Flint Locke, lives in Silver Spring. The group often performs in costume, such as pirate garb, at Piratz Tavern in Silver Spring and the Limerick Pub in Wheaton. They also have played at fandom festivals like Con Nooga in Chattanooga, Tenn., and Nauticon in Provincetown, Mass. Boulden was the impetus behind the group’s formation, holding auditions in 2012. A member of the pirate band Scales and Crosstones, she created the idea for an all-female single group while working as a bartender at the Piratz Tavern. Burrell also was a bartender there, while Lynsen and Hamilton performed there in another band, Pirates for Sail. The Maidens initially started with seven members, including a guitarist, but three

moved on due to scheduling conflicts, Boulden said. They now sing completely a cappella, relying on twists of phrases and their voices to charm their audiences. As they played in clubs and festivals, fans asked them if they had a CD. “Our fan base has grown mostly through word of mouth,” Boulden said. “But we’d like to get an album out there to expand our base beyond the local music scene and regional fandom events.” On Kickstarter, they have received investments from people as far away as Holland, she said. The online crowdfunding platform has been used by

area bands, filmmakers, artists, inventors and others to raise money for projects. Last year, the Silver Spring Irish and Scottish folk band TriHearn raised almost $7,000 for an album. Silver Spring entrepreneur Linda Jo Kushner raised about $20,000 in 2013 through Kickstarter to help fund her mobile gourmet food business. Connecting with the audience makes the hours of practice, creating songs and marketing worthwhile, Lynsen said. “I love the performance aspect,” she said. “If I can make people laugh, I feel I’ve done something.” kshay@gazette.net

The Gazette OUROPINIONS

Charlie, not Kirby

Two reminders of the importance of a free press emerged last week. One was deadly; the other boorish. First, Kirby Delauter, a Frederick County councilman, took exception to a Frederick News-Post reporter’s coverage of him, protesting the use of his name in her story. He blasted her on Facebook. She responded politely that she’d continue to do her job. He threatened an absurd lawsuit if she didn’t get permission to use his name next time. Through social media, the councilman’s bizarre online rant generated worldwide publicity. On the day he finally apologized for his inflammatory temper — Jan. 7 — a terrorist attack at a Paris satire magazine killed 12 people. For years, extremists targeted the magazine, Charlie Hebdo, for its no-holds-barred spoofs of religious sanctities and deities, including the Prophet Muhammad. This time, militants stormed the magazine’s office and shot to death PRESS FREEDOMS its editor, other employees and police officers. ARE VITAL IN A Very quickly, thousands of FREE SOCIETY people in France and millions more worldwide denounced the heinous killings, declaring “Je Suis Charlie,” or “I am Charlie,” in solidarity. The Frederick County empty threat and the cold-blooded slayings in France — while admittedly far apart in levels of severity — had more in common than timing. Both were attempts to intimidate free communication and expression into submission. Both failed; the media they targeted came back at them with gusto. The United States is privileged to have press freedom built into its Bill of Rights, guaranteeing that watchdogs can gather and distribute essential information. We’re also lucky that coercion of the press usually falls far short of physical violence. Still, consider the words of Billy Shreve, another Frederick County councilman and Delauter ally. In a News-Post story about Delauter’s threat, Shreve said, “I think media outlets are cowards and they hide behind the label of journalists and that’s a bully pulpit to expand their liberal [agenda].” Shreve, Delauter and their ilk exercise another freedom — speech — when they sound off. But it’s unacceptable for people entrusted with power to spout nonsensical invective. We invite Shreve to visit the Committee to Protect Journalists website and scan the names of the more than 1,100 journalists killed worldwide since 1992. Some voluntarily work — and die — in war zones. Cowards? Hardly. Killings to silence truth happen in this country, too. Oakland, Calif., editor Chauncey Bailey was gunned down in 2007 because of his exposé of a criminal enterprise. Drug traffickers plotted the shooting death of journalist Manuel de Dios Unanue in New York City in 1992 in retaliation for the dirt he dug up. The Committee to Protect Journalists says: “In total, at least 60 journalists were killed globally in 2014 in relation to their work, compared with 70 who died in 2013. CPJ is investigating the deaths in 2014 of at least 18 more journalists to determine whether they were work-related.” American journalists sometimes face harassment, assault and tear gas when their presence is inconvenient, as we saw in the recent protests in Ferguson, Mo. Some are unfairly arrested and given improper orders to turn over cameras and images they’ve gathered. Great responsibilities go along with press rights. Ethical journalists must strive to be accurate, fair, sensitive and much more. The public should be a watchdog of media in much the same way the press is a watchdog of governments and other societal institutions. By all means, challenge journalists when they fall short. But intimidation at the whims of those in power are far out of bounds and must be called out, too. The public should never tolerate government stewards who don’t respect the press and its essential role in furthering a free society.

Puppy mill bill would help animals, taxpayers I wanted to thank Councilmember George Leventhal for introducing a bill that would stop the sale of puppy mill puppies in pet stores in Montgomery County. This is so important, as not only would it benefit the animals (and people involved, since oftentimes they are not aware they are purchasing a dog that was potentially abused and could have psychological and/ or physical problems), but it would also allow our tax dollars to be used in a more efficient way.

When there is unnecessary breeding, the “unwanted” ones will often end up at shelters. These dogs may also end up at shelters after being turned in by their owners, who are unable to pay for the proper care once they realize the “problems” associated with their dogs. There will be a public hearing at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 27. I hope that those who can make it will come to show their support. It will be at the Montgomery County Council Office Building, 3rd floor. I appreciate it.

Morning rush-hour traffic on Interstate 270 through Germantown.

I-270 tolls: a boon for the Porsche owners Rep. John K. Delaney suggests we reserve the HOV lanes on I-270 to toll lanes. This means his constituents (Potomac) can cruise without passengers past the millions who drive Hondas and pay for the construction and maintainance of the road with federal income and gasoline taxes. We wait so the Porsches with campaign donors crowd into the line, past the queue.

ordinary drivers to pay or it will come out of your pocket. Big fares won’t happen because drivers would revolt, so it will come quietly out of your wallet where you won’t notice. Think about that when the Porsche zooms past you. The lone driver will be smiling.

That substantially decreases the numbers of people who can use the road (HOVs require two or more occupants per car), so the result is more congestion, less commerce and lower funds for road maintainance. How much will it cost each rider for the extra expenses if all that comes only from toll lane fares? $10? $250? Answer: Either it will be too much for

Planning for the end of life I want to endorse the letter you printed ... from Ms. Rogers (“No one should be forced to keep living,” Dec. 31). It would be a great service to its citizens for Maryland to join the states that provide the means for sentient, suffering people — elderly or otherwise — to go through a careful process and be able to get medical help to end their lives peacefully with dignity. I am 91 years old and in good health, but want to plan for the end of my life.

A good friend, who was very ill, was able to move to one of the states that provides for this appropriate exit from a painful and hopeless life. Her family suggested memorial donations to the hospice where her end took place. Instead, I sent my check to the national organization, Death with Dignity, that works to expand the states where it can take place.

no understanding of another person’s suffering to judge the value of their last days in this incarnation. If done with the proper safeguards, we should be able to plan our own departure without someone else arbitrarily judging if the sanctity of one’s life has been violated. It is my choice, not yours, Mr. Schilling. So respect my values and I will do the same for yours. Arthur Slesinger, Darnestown

Jonathan D. Pollock, Rockville

Stanley J. Asrael, Silver Spring

We can decide the value of life on our own

Mr. Schilling’s early battle lines opposing assisted suicide in Maryland is replete with the standard shibboleth about “the sanctity of life.” I, for one, do not need society to tell me how to value my own life when it has come to the end of all meaningful interactions with friends and family. We can also discard his off-topic comparison to Hitler and euthanasia, as those people were not exactly given a choice in the debate. It is inhumane to allow a person who has

Dictionary definitions aren’t good images for ‘Pike District’ Renaming White Flint as the Pike District is a bad idea because residents will be called pikers. A piker is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as: 1: one who gambles with small amounts of money. 2: one who does things in a small way; also: tightwad, cheapskate. The Urban Dictionary defines piker as one who trades securities in a small time, even amateurish, fashion. In Australian and British slang, it means a slacker, loafer, or good for nothing.

‘Burden of proof’ legislation would improve special education

The General Assembly can advance civil rights for children with disabilities. It can correct an injustice by passing burden of proof legislation in special education due process cases. Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, children with disabilities are entitled to a free, appropriate public education. To meet this obligation, school districts provide special education and related services in an Individualized Education Program (IEP). The IEP process should be collaborative, involving the school district and parents. However, a new IEP goes into effect every year, even if parents disagree with it. Schools control all aspects of plans, services and placements, and they can change them at any time, without parental consent. If parents disagree, they have little recourse. They can initiate a due process legal proceeding in which they have the burden of proving their case by the weight or preponderance of the evidence. In these cases, parents are at a huge disadvantage. School districts have all of the power: knowledge of complex special education law, access

to staff attorneys and outside counsel. They employ the teachers, therapists and educational experts responsible for the IEP. They have full access to records, instructional materials and placement options. In stark contrast, parents have limited resources, limited knowledge of their options, and limited access to witnesses and information. Most cannot afford attorneys or experts needed to prove their case. They may be denied access to placements, instructional materials, lesson plans and other vital information. It is no surprise that parents lose more than 90 percent of these disputes. School systems have won cases despite putting on little or no evidence. By shifting the burden from parents to school districts, Maryland can balance the scales of injustice. Burden of proof for a school district is merely the requirement to demonstrate that the IEP it created provides a disabled child with the basic floor of opportunity, as the law requires. For parents, it would mean lifting the tremendous weight of trying to prove a negative against an entire school district.

Shifting the burden is about fundamental fairness and leveling the playing field. It is about accountability and encouraging good faith collaboration with parents. The current situation is so lopsided that principals and school districts know they will lose only in egregious cases (involving parents who can afford an attorney). Low-income families suffer the most because parents don’t have resources to advocate for their children. During hearings last spring, lack of accountability was a recurring theme. Parents and advocates testified about enormous challenges they faced getting appropriate IEPs for their children and having schools implement them if they did. Maryland prides itself on being progressive, but falls short for children with disabilities. It is time to enact this basic civil rights legislation for our most vulnerable members of society.

Merit of NIH monkey In Clarksburg, 3 Beazer Townhouse plan filed for Montgomery Village experiments challenged complaints remain Arora Hills residents cite problems with workmanship n

BY

VIRGINIA TERHUNE STAFF WRITER

The county’s Office of Consumer Protection has resolved 16 of 19 complaints brought by Arora Hills residents in Clarksburg against Beazer Homes. “There are three still to go,” said office director Eric Friedman on Monday. Theofficeischargedwithinvestigating complaints from residents about a variety of problems, including residential building issues. Friedman said he hoped to have the final three cases resolved within a few weeks. One complaint involves alleged excessive noise from adjoining apartments. The county’s

Department of Permitting Services is looking into whether there were any violations in the building code, Friedman said. Another complaint has to do with the placement of a microwave installed in the wall beneath cabinets in the kitchen, and the third is about a request for reimbursement for mold remediation, Friedman said. Most of the 19 cases were filed after Arora Hills townhouse owner Elizabeth Kessler raised the issue of shoddy workmanship during a community meeting she hosted in Clarksburg last spring. Kessler sued Beazer Homes in June and voluntarily dismissed the case in August. No further information was available in the Circuit Court case file as of Monday. vterhune@gazette.net

Former county man gets 25 years in child porn case Ex-Health and Human Services official sentenced in Nebraska n

BY

DANIEL LEADERMAN STAFF WRITER

A former Germantown resident — who was once chief of cybersecurity for a federal agency — was sentenced to 25 years in prison for child pornography charges in Nebraska on Jan. 5. Timothy DeFoggi, 56, was convicted in August of engaging in a child exploitation enterprise, conspiracy to advertise and distribute child pornography, and accessing a computer with intent to view child pornography. DeFoggi is a former acting director of cybersecurity at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, according to a statement from the U.S. Department of Justice. DeFoggi joined a child pornography website in March 2012

1909757

and stayed a member until December 2012, when the site was shut down by the FBI. Authorities say he used the site to access and solicit child pornography and communicated to other members that he was interested in the violent rape and murder of children. He even suggested meeting another member in person to fulfill a shared fantasy of raping and murdering children, according to the Department of Justice. DeFoggi was the sixth person to be convicted in connection with an ongoing federal investigation into three child pornogaphy websites that use Tor, an internet application that facilitates anonymous communication. Charles MacMillan, 29, a former Rockville resident, was sentenced to 12 years in prison in connection with the scheme on Nov. 7, according to the Department of Justice. dleaderman@gazette.net

Monument requests 84 units under zoning

BY

VIRGINIA TERHUNE STAFF WRITER

Under a current cap on population growth, developers in Montgomery Village must wait until a master plan is completed and new zoning approved before going forward with projects in the Gaithersburg area. However, there is enough capacity under the current cap to allow property owner Monument Realty of Washington, D.C., to develop a small section of the former Montgomery Village Golf Course that it acquired in 2013. Monument applied to the county last week to build 84 townhouses on a 17-acre site between Montgomery Village Avenue and Arrowhead Road. Part of the golf course tract, the horseshoe-shaped site surrounds Duffer Way in an area of existing townhouses, said Monument Development Manager Yovi Sever on Monday. Monument’s project is allowed by right under the current Town Sector zone that applies to the entire 2,435-acre planned Montgomery Village community, founded in 1965. “There is still a little room under the existing cap, and the project will go through the usual Planning Board process,” which will involve public hearings, said Rose Krasnow, deputy director of the county’s planning department. Krasnow, Sever, planners and residents attended a public workshop at Watkins Mill High School on Monday to discuss possible residential zones as part of Montgomery Village’s first-ever master plan process to guide future growth. Under the county’s recent zoning-code update, the Town Sector zone will be eliminated and more specific zoning

will be applied by the County Council to accompany the Montgomery Village master plan, due to the council in October. On Monday, the public had a chance to see preliminary zoning maps and talk to planners about zoning ideas for three types of housing — single-family, townhouse and apartment/condominium. The draft maps, which reflect the county’s current zoning categories, were developed using existing housing densities in Montgomery Village, said planner Nancy Sturgeon. Zoning, ultimately determined by the County Council, determines the allowed uses and density of development on properties, she said. The intent of the preliminary maps, which soon will be posted at montgomeryplanning.org/mvp, was to “give you a zone that matches what was built,” she said. The maps do not indicate existing small parks, however. On Jan. 28, planners will host another public workshop at Watkins Mill High School for commercial centers, including the Village Center, the Professional Center, the Cider Mill apartments near Lakeforest mall and retail areas near Goshen and Wightman roads. The workshops are public, and anyone interested in the master plan process may attend, planners said. The commercial workshop will be followed by another on Feb. 9 about possible zoning for the rest of the golf course and other open spaces in Montgomery Village. Resident Cary Cunningham suggested that Monument keep a low-impact version of the golf course for the community, but Sever said the community doesn’t want a golf course and that an 85-acre public park is planned instead.

Poolesville lab has been focus of PETA, media reports

n

SAMANTHA SCHMIEDER

BY

STAFF WRITER

Four members of Congress have expressed concerns about experiments on infant monkeys taking place at a National Institutes of Health lab in Poolesville. In a letter to NIH director Dr. Francis Collins, dated Dec. 22, 2014, representatives Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.), Dina Titus (D-Nev.), Sam Farr (D-Calif.) and Eliot Engel (DN.Y.) said constituents contacted them in response to media accounts of the tests, including a campaign by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The letter describes experiments at the Laboratory of Comparative Ethology by lead researcher Stephen Suomi as intending “to cause monkeys to suffer from mental illness by breeding them to carry certain genes, removing them from their mothers at birth and subjecting them to distressful and sometimes painful procedures that measure their anxiety and depression.” The letter calls for a bioethics consultation of the experiments by the NIH Department of Bioethics and a complete consultation report by Feb. 27, 2015. “NIH’s policy is to respond directly to Congress and NIH Director Dr. Collins will be responding to the letter dated December 22, 2014, in detail,” said Renate Myles, chief of the News Media Branch at NIH, in a Jan. 7 email to The Gazette. Farr has worked for animal rights for “decades,” according to Adam Russell, his press secretary, and heard about this issue from former Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), who was retiring.

“We have a moral responsibility to prevent any unnecessary harm to all animals used in scientific experiments but particularly animals as intelligent as primates,” Farr said through Russell, via email. “NIH has failed to adequately respond to the troubling questions about the psychological experiments performed on monkeys at their Poolesville facility. We asked for a full Bioethics Consultation to address these ethical concerns and for NIH to provide the scientific justification [of] these experiments.” Justin Goodman, director of the Laboratory Investigation Department at PETA, sees this as an example of animal cruelty that’s important to publicize because of its huge scale and because there is no evidence it led to any scientific knowledge. “We think that even people who are relatively conservative on the issue of animal experiments, once conducting a review, will find out this is unjustifiable ethically and scientifically,” Goodman said. PETAhasknownaboutthe experiments on infant monkeys at the Laboratory of Comparative Ethology for a while and in 2012, through a paper published by the lab, discovered there was video footage and photographs. PETA requested those records and received more than 500 hours of footage months later. It took the group many more months to watch the footage. PETA launched a public campaign in September 2014, with ads identifying the issue posted throughout the D.C. Metro system. On Monday, PETA launched another campaign in Bethesda, where NIH’s main campus is. “The problem is not trivial and it’s been going on for 30 years,” Goodman said. sschmieder@gazette.net

Ulysses projects prove personal for students n

Germantown seniors create questions, generate answers

BY

VIRGINIA TERHUNE STAFF WRITER

Many of the in-depth Ulysses research projects that seniors at Northwest High School did for the January Ulysses fair drew on experiences from their own lives. Senior Mariya Khan’s project, “Fact or Fiction? The Truth Behind Crime Scene Investigations,” arose out of her watching crime shows. She wrote about the CSI effect, which is about how inaccurately such investigations are depicted in the media and how it influences juries. Investigations take much longer than they do on television, said Khan, who presented a more accurate version of procedures in her project-related novel, “Violet Rage,” now for sale at Amazon.com. “I love writing so much ... that I decided to write the book,” Mariya Khan said. Lauren Oxenford of Germantown did a report called “Why Are Girls So Mean? A Study of Teenage Drama,” in part due to being a victim of hurtful gossip.

Northwest High School student Tucker Sharpe explains his Ulysses research project about twins to peers and faculty during a fair on Thursday at the Germantown school. “I’ve been a victim recently, and I’ve seen it happen to other people,” Oxenford said. Oxenford surveyed students in all four grades at the high school to get a sense of what age is most prevalent. “It seems to start in late middle school when all the cliques are being formed,” she said. Gossip among girls is different than bullying, in which one person is trying to put another one down. Misinformation and miscommunication also lead to escalation, she said.

“They keep it rolling, and it gets bigger and bigger,” she said. “No one wanted to talk face to face ... and it never gets resolved.” “The project completely changed me,” Oxenford said. “I think [drama] is ridiculous, I refuse to do it. It totally opened my eyes,” she said. Athlete Eugene Dillon of Boyds did his project on “The Effects of Stretching on the Human Body.” Dillon said he goes against the grain and doesn’t do stretching exercises before a

football game or before playing golf. “It goes completely against the consensus [not to],” he said. Through his research, Dillon found studies that showed that stretching actually reduces muscle strength and that warming up muscles slowly and naturally is better. “I was surprised — I still had this illusion that stretching benefits you,” he said about his project. Senior Austin Widjaja dug into the stereotype that Asian parents push their children to succeed in his project, “AsianAmerican Academic Success.” Widjaja polled 65 Asian students at Northwest using Survey Monkey and concluded that students growing up with the traditional culture of their parents while living in the U.S. didn’t do as well as the next generation, which is more acclimated to American life. Widjaja said he learned more doing his project than he does in some of his classes, which focus more on memorization. “[Doing these Ulysses projects] really opens your eyes,” he said. “You can do much more if you’re not limited [by the regular curriculum],” he said. Senior Tucker Sharpe of Darnestown wanted to know

more about the world of his younger brothers, Cooper and Clement, 11, who are identical twins. They have a special bond, but they also have different personalities and face different problems growing up, Sharpe said. He concluded after his study that it’s better to encourage distinctions so that each twin develops as an individual, something that his family also believes. “They should be identified as individuals rather than twins,” he said. Jasmine Kim was intrigued by a YouTube posting that said South Korean students study 14 hours a day in order to get into a top college. She learned through her project that in addition to regular school, some students enroll in a hagwon, a private service that provides supplemental education for a fee. “It can cost $1,000 a month in tuition,” she said. Kim, who speaks and writes Korean, said the hardest part of her project was translating the interviews she did with 13 South Korean students using Skype but that it was worth it. “I had fun doing it,” she said. vterhune@gazette.net

PROGRAM

Continued from Page A-1 Borenzweig said. So far this year, senior projects have run the gamut from Kiersten Helmey’s “The Effects of Texting on Teen Communication” to M. Ummer Qureshi’s “The Human Microbiome” about beneficial microbes that live in our bodies. Other examples include Lauren Oxenford’s “Why Are Girls So Mean? A Study of Teenage Drama,” Jennifer Moy’s “Netflix’s Effect on the Shift of Television to the Internet” and Manav Parikh’s “Sleep Apnea: The Dream Killer.” A group of 49 seniors presented their projects during the Ulysses Fair in the Northwest auditorium on Jan. 7 and 8. Another 50 will present their projects in late April. Unique to Northwest, the Ulysses program is one of 11 “signature” programs, each different, that are offered at 11 participating Montgomery County high schools. The Ulysses program serves mostly honors and Advanced Placement students, but also accepts other students, said Borenzweig, who will be accepting online applications from eighth graders at Roberto Clemente and Kingsview middle schools in Germantown and Lakelands Park Middle School in Gaithersburg through Feb. 17. For more information, visit http://northwesths-montgomeryschoolsmd.libguides.com/ Ulysses. In grades 9 and 10, Ulysses students take English, history and science classes together that emphasize research skills. They take a semester-long Advanced Research class during junior year, followed by a project during senior year. Amdiel Clement of Boyds, who graduated from Northwest last year, paid a visit to the fair Thursday. Now at Dartmouth College, he said the Ulysses program taught him to manage his time well, which has made the college workload easier to manage that it otherwise would have been. “The program sets you up to succeed,” he said. It also stands out on a college application because of its uniqueness and the depth of the senior projects. “It’s a local, home-grown program,” which distinguishes from more standardized programs such as an International Baccalaureate program, Borenzweig said. One recent student, for example, parlayed her love of cupcakes into an impressive real-world project. “She got a paid internship at Georgetown Cupcake [in Washington, D.C.], surveyed Northwest about what cupcakes they liked and baked them, and also developed a business plan,” Borenzweig said. Students first review existing information on the topic, including reading scholarly papers online, and then devise ways to conduct their own research, which can include surveying fellow students and even interviewing students overseas via Skype. Depending on the project, students generate PowerPoint presentations, posters, charts, videos, photos and handouts, as well as a binder for Borenzweig that documents their efforts. In addition, students must present their projects in a challenging 15-minute talk to students and a panel of teachers. “It’s like a mini-master’s program. ... It’s a humongous step into getting into college and the professional world,” said trained microbiologist Aamena Khan, of Germantown who has two daughters in the program. Participating students also answer questions from fellow classmates during the two fairs in January and April. “I wanted to support them and see what they worked so hard for,” said senior AaronDavid Beidleman, who stopped by to check out the projects on Thursday. A football player at Northwest, Beidleman said he learned a great deal about concussions from a Ulysses project last year. The projects are not only interesting but also useful in his everyday life, he said. “You learn things from them ... about the little things you think about when you’re doing something,” he said. vterhune@gazette.net

Dogfish Head Alehouse comes up short

Band excited to bring music from new album to Fillmore

KIRSTY GROFF STAFF WRITER

After eight studio albums and 15 years since their debut “Infest,” hard rockers Papa Roach are out to prove fear can’t hold them back with their new album and a national tour, coming to The Fillmore Wednesday. Papa Roach consists of vocalist Jacoby Shaddix and guitarist Jerry Horton, who have both been with the band since 1993 when Shaddix formed the group with some high school friends, as well as bassist Tobin Esperance and drummer Tony Palermo. The group hopes their latest release, named “F.E.A.R.” which comes out Jan. 27, inspires their fans to not let their worries keep them back, but instead to “Face Everything And Rise.” “Everyone has fears, and a lot of people let their fears cripple them in a way where they’re afraid to do what they want to do,” said Jerry Horton, Papa Roach’s guitarist. “A lot of times, if you can take that step getting past that fear, it’s going to be to your benefit, and that’s really what this record boils down to.” This album marks a return to the numetal scene Papa Roach first came up in while incorporating some electronic elements and creating a heavier sound. The result is an album familiar to fans but with new elements to keep the music fresh. “The sound is very in-your-face,” Horton said, “and I guess in true Papa Roach fashion it’s a very diverse record as far as styles and sound.” Taking their music in new directions between albums is important to the members of Papa Roach, allowing them to reach new listeners and keep songwriting and recording interesting, rather than becoming burnt out from playing one style for decades. “There are very few bands out there that can do the same thing over and over again and get away with it,” Horton said. “We admire bands that have been around for a

They’re making themselves happy, and when a band does that they tend to come off as more genuine.” Co-headlining is Seether, a hard rock band from South Africa that saw mainstream U.S. success around the same time as Papa Roach. The groups have performed

with each other in the past, and their similar sounds as well as a familiar relationship make the two groups a good match. “We’ve never really just toured with Seether,” said Horton. “We get along great with those guys and we love what they do.

For the past two decades, Dogfish Head craft beers have steadily moved from the Rehoboth Beach area in Delaware to across the Mid-Atlantic. With the success of brews comes the next natural step — brew pubs and ale houses. One of the brew pubs can be found in Rehoboth Beach, while “Bunyan’s Lunchbox” can be found at the brewery located in Milton, Del. There are three ale houses — one in Gaithersburg, the other two in Falls Church, Va., and Fairfax, Va. While the menus are pretty much set, each has a chalkboard showing the different Dogfish Head beers that are available. In Gaithersburg, ale house patrons are greeted by a large staircase, which leads to more dining spaces upstairs. Downstairs has tables, but it’s more bar-adjacent. The jumbo soft pretzel ($8) was on the “specials” menu, but it really should have a permanent place on the everyday menu. At just around eight inches across, it was a gracious plenty for three people. The queso dip was thick with just the right amount of heat. The cream of crab soup, which is one of the very first items on the menu, had a hint of sherry and was seasoned with just enough Old Bay.

DINING REVIEW BY WILL C. FRANKLIN to be there, but overall the soup was quite good. Sadly, it all kind of went downhill from there. The Alehouse Mac & Cheese ($14, $17 with chicken, $18 with steak), which came highly recommended by our server, was indeed tasty, with little bits of Gouda and applewood smoked bacon mixed in. The addition of summer squash, zucchini, roasted red peppers, and sundried tomatoes lent a nice surprise. However, the blackened chicken added to my dish was bone dry. Not even eating it with a bite of the mac & cheese could salvage it. On top of that, when you get down to it, you’re paying $14 for mac & cheese. Even though it was good, it’s still $14. If you wanted to add steak, it came out to $18. At that price,

The asparagus had a burnt taste and smell, which was very unappetizing, while the remoulade had very little taste at all. My friend order the Mahi Mahi tacos with spinach instead of beans and rice. She received spinach on top of rice. The manager was extremely pleasant about the incident (in fact, everyone at the restaurant was incredibly nice and helpful for the most part) and, about five minutes later, brought her the dish back without the rice. The tacos were flavorful, although a bit on the spicy side. The sour cream helped to cut some of the spice, but the pico de gallo tasted flat and fresh out of a can.

Extra pounds allows for better wrestling When I wrestled in high school, I heard the horror stories. “You won’t be able to eat.” “You will have to sweat to death.” “Cutting weight is going to stink.” Fortunately for me — I started at 215 pounds my junior and senior years — cutting weight was never a major issue. Yes, prior to the 200304 season I had to get down from 240 pounds after KENT ZAKOUR football season ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR to scratch weight in less than three weeks, but all it took was a little bit more conditioning and eating right (shedding pounds now might be a little tougher). Once I got down, I was fortunate and lucky enough to be able to eat regularly. But I watched in amazement as some of my teammates — my good friend and practice partner comes to mind — struggle every day throughout the season. David Reich was our starting 189 pounder and on match day, he would weigh-in in the morning routinely five pounds overweight. Meals would consist of a bagel and a bit of water. Sometimes he would wear multiple layers of sweats to school and workout during free periods. At times it entertained us to watch him suffer, but we all supported him and David accepted it as part of being a wrestler. Once the winter break started and a new year hit, David always appeared to be much more relaxed and performed better. I didn’t pay much attention to it then, but I’ve come to realize that was probably due to the fact he wasn’t cutting as much weight. Every year, Dec. 25 has special significance for Maryland high school wrestlers. They don’t just receive Christmas presents: they get a two-pound growth allowance (the start date varies from state to state). That means a wrestler in the 170-pound weight class must compete at scratch weight for the first 20 days of the season. For the final two-plus months, they can weigh up to 172 pounds. “Sucking weight the whole season can be really draining,” Magruder coach A.J. Tao said. “Getting those extra pounds — two pounds may not sound like a lot but it is when guys reach the level where they don’t have much more fat to burn — I guarantee all the wrestlers across the county love it.” “We don’t have guys cutting a lot of weight, but kids are actually growing,” Parkdale coach Adam Forschner added. “The two pounds may be the difference in a guy eating a bigger meal the night before a match.” The extra pounds allow for advantages for both the team and individual grappler. “It gives us less worry about making weight and more concentration on actual wrestling,” Damascus coach John Furgeson said. “I think the kids get a little extra boost in energy. It adds a little bit of more flavor to your lineup and an ability to bump guys around.” Added Quince Orchard coach Rob Wolf: “For some guys that are close, they have a little more flexibility. Other guys may be able to drop or go up a weight class.” It also can be a mental benefit. “I see it as more of a training and conditioning issue,” Northwest coach Joe Vukovich said. “The workout regimen is hardcore [to make scratch weight] and wrestlers are the most disciplined athletes on earth. … But I think the two pounds does a lot for confidence mentally. You aren’t stepping off the gas pedal, but the wrestlers get a little bit of a reprieve.” kzakour@gazette.net

New generation steps forward Diverse Jaguars are deceptively strong and deep for indoor track season n

BY JENNIFER BEEKMAN STAFF WRITER

There was a time not long ago when it was the Northwest High School girls — and not the recently more successful boys — who were at the forefront of most conversations regarding Maryland high school track. The 2011 state champions won three consecutive Montgomery County championships from 201113 and finished second at the state meet in 2010 and 2012 by a mere few points. While the current Jaguars certainly don’t want to escape the program’s history of success, it will be hard for any single Montgomery County team to live up to that Northwest generation, when some of the county’s greatest athletes were setting records left and right. The Jaguars still hold county meet records in five events, including all three relays. “The thing is, the girls had a history because they had three exceptional athletes here at the same time,” Northwest coach Robert Youngblood said. “There was no way to lose with that and that is extremely hard to replace, at any school.” But the Jaguars said they aren’t looking to cling to the past and they don’t have to. While it might not have the same flash of years past, Northwest has the potential to truly contend in the championship season. And the Jaguars will do it with deceptive strength. Unlike their male counterparts, the Northwest girls don’t necessarily have the type of athletes who are going to win a ton of events, but they are propelled by a level of diversity across the board that most teams can only strive for. Additionally, the majority

Seated at his desk, two floors under the court the Watkins Mill High School boys basketball team had just dropped its sixth straight game — a 57-34 loss to Wheaton last week — eighth-year Wolverines coach Jay Tringone remained positive. For Tringone, expectations, he said, are not weighed by wins and losses, but rather by players’ effort and their willingness to apply the principles taught in practice. Thursday night, despite the unfavorable outcome, Tringone smiled, happy with the hustle his team had shown against a bigger and more experienced lineup. At 2-7, this is not where Tringone — or anyone around the program — would have expected to be. Still, undermanned, undersized and, at times, overwhelmed, Watkins Mill has put up a fight. Rewind six months to the St. Andrew’s Summer League and the Wolverines seemed poised to improve upon their 8-13 record from a season before. Watkins Mill was set to return 6-foot-6 forward Rob Montgomery and 6-foot slasher Obi Patrick, a pair of seniors who had combined for nearly 27 points per game as juniors. “Over the summer, we looked really good,” senior guard Joshua Cray said. “We had guys in here every morning at 9 o’clock doing workouts

We always hear about superstars like [Diego Zarate] or Jalen [Walker] but what we have is depth in every event, we can score in every event. A lot of teams are mostly sprinters, or mostly distance.” Such a team structure, where every person has an important role to play, has cultivated a uniquely cohesive atmosphere, Go said. In order for Northwest to have postseason success, every girl competing will literally have to perform to the best of her ability. And the entire squad has put in the work and is committed to doing just that, said junior jumper/ hurdler Leondra Correia, who has rebounded remarkably from a tear in her gluteus maximus a year ago. Watching eagerly from the sidelines motivated her to get back and help her team, she added. Northwest athletes are peppering the state’s top 20 leaderboard and several are already in the top 10 of their events. Correia is currently the state’s third-ranked long jumper, 10th-ranked 55-meter hurdler and is No. 12 in the high jump, according to MileSplit. A much-improved Stephanie Bateky is fifth in the state in the high jump and No. 16 in the triple jump. Go is ninth in the 800 meters but can run just about any distance, senior Dana Eckerstrom anchors Northwest’s sprint corps but also has the endurance to run longer events and Sofia Zarate and Leanna Choo are among the county’s top distance runners. Kat Lake has been integral to all of the Jaguars’ relays. “I think we have a good chance of doing well [this postseason], a lot of our talent has gotten a lot better,” Eckerstrom said. “Our team has good talent in every event, maybe not first place but we are deep and don’t have to focus on one event. It’s not focusing on one person, everyone has to pull our own weight and collectively I think we can do it.”

with the [junior varsity] coach.” But as the school year drew close, Tringone and company got some unfortunate news: Montgomery, by far the biggest body on a relatively small team, was transferring to Takoma Academy. Amara Clemens, a 6-foot-2 sophomore, went down with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and Patrick, the team’s leading scorer at 16.6 points per game, has been unavailable the past two games for personal reasons. “Right now, we are trying to find an identity and it’s tough to find an identity with some of the injuries and things we have going on,”

From a win-loss perspective, it has been a rough season for the Gaithersburg High School wrestling team. Injuries and illnesses to start the season have kept the Trojans from fielding a consistent lineup from match-to-match, and the resulting 2-6 record has fallen short of what coach Eric Britton said he was expecting prior to the start of the season. With Springbrook’s Grapple at the ’Brook tournament set for this weekend and a match against Northwest (7-1) looming on Jan. 21, things don’t look to get easier for Britton’s team. “My goal is always to try and get to a winning record, and we’re certainly going to strive for that as the year keeps going,” Britton said. “I knew I was going to have a few holes [in the lineup], I just thought that we would be better. But a couple of our wrestlers have done well.” Senior leaders such as Fabio Tamakloe and Chris Moorman — two of the most successful wrestlers in the county — have set an example for their younger teammates.

Another county football coaching position became vacant after Joe Allen submitted his letter of resignation to Churchill High School on January 7. Allen said he stepped down from the position after the Montgomery County Public Schools denied his son, a freshman quarterback at Sherwood, acceptance to attend the Potomac school because they live in Olney. He said he wants to work closer to his family. “It was tough,” Allen said of his decision to resign. “It was very

Even Tamakloe didn’t

Continued from Page B-1 Tringone said. “The guys have been in great spirits though. Obviously, we’re sitting on a tough losing streak right now, but I’m proud of how they’ve been working.” In their current situation, the Wolverines have been finding positives in their defeats to fuel and motivate a team that Tringone said has the pieces and potential to get back on the winning side. And for Watkins Mill, the building block that could save their season is its defense. “I think that, regardless of what level of basketball you’re playing at, if you can teach kids how to play man-to-man — learn those man-toman principles — that is what will propel your program or your team to the next level,” Tringone said. “If you learn those man-to-man principles, you can play any type of defense.” Led by senior guard Joshua Cray, a player Tringone called a “shutdown” defensive player, the Wolver-

ines offseason work has kept them competitive when shorthanded. Tringone said he planned to play a lot more man-to-man defense coming into the season, but has had to revert to a healthy dose of zone. Still, even in their 23-point loss against Wheaton, there were flashes of defensive brilliance. In the first and fourth quarter combined, Watkins Mill held the Knights to a combined 9-of-33 (27 percent) shooting with a stout 2-3 zone. Guards Jalen Jackson and Dharik Shamsudeen provided quick lateral movement and active hands at the top of the zone, while forwards Emmanuel Ogbewe and Markel Grant anchored down an athletic backline. When the Wolverines went to a press late, they forced two turnovers and a timeout in four possessions, “I’ve been seeing the progression,” Ogbewe said. “We’ve been getting better.” It’s been offensive execution that’s plagued the Wolverines. Failure to initiate sets and subsequent

I know it was a really hard decision for him because he was balancing the loyalty he had to the program with trying to spend a little bit more time with his family ... “We would’ve loved to have coach back. We wanted him to stay here and he had to make a decision on his own for his family. ... We wanted to keep him, and I told him, ‘Any help we can give you going forward, just let us know.” Allen said he plans to make the decision on his next move in the weeks to come, and said his options include not coaching at all. Allen said he has already applied for coaching positions at two other schools, although he wouldn’t say where. Blake, Kennedy, Northwood, and Springbrook all have coaching vacancies and Allen wouldn’t rule out joining his son at Sherwood, which is coached by

If not for the injury, Tamakloe said he probably would have done well. “I think he would’ve made regions,” Britton added. “He put in some time in the

offseason,” Britton said. “He goes to open tournaments. He goes to some mat clubs. That’s how hes progressed.” Once Gaithersburg gets the right combination of wrestlers who love the sport and put in the extra work to get better, the Trojans will become a better team, Tamakloe said. “[Wrestling is] very individual because the better you do as an individual, the better the

team does. So it all relies on you before the team comes,” Tamakloe said. “And since Chris Moorman and I are two of the better wrestlers on the team ... whatever we know that can help them when we [graduate], we try to teach them now so that they might use it. And they can be useful for it.” pgrimes@gazette.net

turnovers have allowed teams to avoid Watkins Mill’s improved defense by scoring in transition. “What’s hurting us defensively right now, is our offense,” Tringone said. “If you really took away their transition baskets — how did we do five-on-five — we probably played pretty well five-on-five.” The offensive comfort will come with time as part of the process of establishing the identity Watkins Mill is currently searching for. But despite the hand they’ve been dealt, Watkins Mill’s expectations will not change. “We’re still players ourselves,” Ogbewe said. “We just have to step it up.” “We come in the next day and we get better,” the Wolverines coach said. “Whoever is on the roster, whoever is in the gym, whoever is suiting up for our squad, we come in tomorrow and we get better. And that’s the expectation.” agutekunst@gazette.net

I’ve got a couple of options,” Allen said about his future. “I’m definitely going to miss the [Churchill] community, because they were so supportive of me when people originally thought I was just coming there to police the parents, so to speak. No one was expecting us to do what we’ve done this past six years. And I feel like Churchill football is back on the map.

Damascus High School’s MaryKate Staines defends Seneca Valley’s Alanah Roy during Friday’s game.

New look, same results Damascus girls basketball overcomes size, inexperience n

BY

ERIC GOLDWEIN STAFF WRITER

After the Damascus High School girls basketball team dropped its season opener to Oakdale, the players went to the locker room for the postgame pep talk. It was the first varsity game for many of them; the Swarmin’ Hornets have a mostly new roster and bear little resemblance to the squad that reached the 2014 Class 3A title game. And so, following the Dec. 6 loss, coach Steve Pisarski asked the players to raise their hands if they’d ever before played as many varsity minutes as they did that game. Not one hand went up, and the Swarmin’ Hornets realized then just how inexperienced they were. “It was kind of funny,” senior MaryKate Staines said. “... We’re all looking around kind of laughing.” Damascus has five new starters, and only a few play-

ers with any varsity experience. This team doesn’t have a dominant center such as Kelli Prange, the 2014 All-Gazette Player of the Year who’s now at George Washington. It doesn’t even have a player listed above 5-foot-9. But that hasn’t stopped it from once again establishing itself as one of the top teams in Montgomery County. The Swarmin’ Hornets are 8-2 through Monday and have won eight of their past nine games. They’ve scrapped their way to a 6-0 county record, with victories against Clarksburg, Watkins Mill and Poolesville. “We’ve gladly accepted the challenge to rise up to the reputation [last year’s seniors] left for us,” Staines said. “... We’re really confident that we can build on our skills. By being a young and fresh team we’re excited to get our floor skills together.” Sophomore forward Tiana Stewart has led the Hornets, averaging 12.0 points and 6.9 rebounds while anchoring the defense. At just 5-8, she’s tasked with defending the opposition’s biggest player and helping the undersized frontcourt grab rebounds.

“We all have to chip in on that part. We have to remember we have to go in and box out, the little things,” Stewart said. In the Jan. 8 game against Poolesville, Stewart held her own against 6-2 freshman center Erin Green and helped lead Damascus to a 41-35 overtime victory. Staines, a 5-6 guard, had a lockdown defensive performance while sophomore Kalyn Sefcik notched a team-high 20 points. “It’s been a pretty good team effort. We don’t have much size but we have some kids that are willing to scrap a little bit,” Pisarski said. Damascus stands atop the 3A/2A standings and ranks seventh in The Gazette’s top 10, but there’s still plenty more, such as a region title, that this team is looking to accomplish, Stewart said. “Even coming from fall league and even the Oakdale game into now, we’re so much better,” Stewart said. “We want it and we’re working for it. We know we don’t have Kelli and everybody else so we’re working hard. I think we’ll be there.” egoldwein@gazette.net

Club turns disabilities into abilities Cheetahs use sports to help teach Bethesda-area youth life lessons

n

BY JENNIFER BEEKMAN STAFF WRITER

Ice skating — essentially attempting to run on a tremendously slick surface while wearing blades less than 2/10 of an inch thick — is a difficult task for even the most athletic, able-bodied people. Throw in simultaneously controlling a long hockey stick, intricate puckwork and grasping the overall concept of the sport, and ice hockey can be quite a complicated game to execute. For two hours early Saturday mornings September through May at the Cabin John Ice Rink, a group of nearly 100 children, who hear way too often about all the things they can’t do, become competitive ice hockey players. The Montgomery Cheetahs Ice Hockey Club is a non-profit organization that falls under the umbrella of the American Special Hockey Association and is geared toward helping teach children with developmental disabilities life lessons through sport. What originally started in 2006 as a Bar Mitzvah service project for brothers Jake and Corey Berk has grown to comprise nearly 100 athletes and even more volunteer mentors, many of whom are high school ice hockey players within Montgomery County. The ASHA was created in 2000 to give people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to learn and grow by playing hockey and now has more than 50 programs spread through 30-plus cities nationwide, according to the organization’s website. The Cheetahs are divided into three ability-based groups and travel the country to compete — they’re headed to Canada this spring. “Although we are a hockey

program per se, it is therapy first, hockey second,” Cheetahs coach and ASHA Executive Director David Lucia said. “We can make the rink a classroom for them. Sharing and passing, we correlate those two. Some kids with autism have difficulty sharing things so it’s the same thing when you’re passing the puck, you’re sharing and being a teammate. “The interesting thing is, with school, they have to go to school. Hockey is a choice. They are attracted to playing the game and want to get better and want to do well so they’re willing to show up and play games and these drills. In order to play, they have to learn life lessons.” Many studies have revealed the benefits of sport for people with developmental disabilities and they range from mere physical activity to important social skills. Lucia, who said many of his drills stress the difference between competition and cooperation among friends, added that it’s important to incorporate visual cues with his directions.

Ice hockey in particular comes with its own advantages, said Lucia, who played four years of hockey at Notre Dame and first became involved with the Cheetahs and ASHA to help his now 17-year-old son David. Ice hockey is fluid, there are very few interruptions of the action. In addition, all the equipment and padding, the helmet and masks, helps lift the social barrier that can hold back many children with developmental disabilities, Lucia, of Bethesda, and Cheetahs team manager Sean Twombly, of Potomac, agreed. Twombly’s now 12-year-old son, Benjamin, has been with the Cheetahs since he was 5. “Putting on the hockey equipment changes the entire equation,” Twombly said. “They’re wearing a mask so it’s almost like they can be someone else.” While the benefits of Saturday morning sessions can have an immediate impact just for the day, they also, over time, translate into the athletes’ everyday lives. Athletes learn to behave in the classroom like they do on the ice, Twombly said, whether it’s reading teachers’ visual cues or waiting one’s turn to speak. And the confidence gained through achieving tasks on the ice is invaluable, Lucia and Twombly said. Many Cheetahs have pursued college educations; several have found their way onto high school and college teams and made an impact. “Confidenceformanyofthese kidsissorelylackinginalotofways so when you have a skater come out and they don’t know how to skate and spend a couple weeks trying to stand up and a couple of weeks learning how to move and then they’re chasing after a puck. ...[Many] have used the game as a vehicle. ‘If I can do this, whi can’t I try this?’” Twombly said. jbeekman@gazette.net

RM boys stand perfectly alone Rockets defeat Whitman in overtime to be only undefeated public team in county

n

Richard Montgomery High School boys basketball coach David Breslaw beamed as he brought his wristwatch to his eyes minutes after his Rockets had just knocked off Whitman, 50-46 in overtime, as the first installment of a Friday night boys-girls doubleheader at the Rockville school. “These games go quick with Richard Montgomery, right,” Breslaw asked with a smile. “Shoot, [the girls] are starting on time and we went into overtime.” While it’s no secret that the Rockets like to play a slowed down, deliberate pace on offense, the ap-

proach proved its worth again Friday night as the hosts were able to recover from a furious Whitman rally in the second half to improve to 10-0 on the season. From the opening whistle, Breslaw’s group worked the ball incessantly, waiting often more than a minute to create the shot they wanted. Whitman (4-6), which has also been known to slow down the pace, had no answer for the Rockets’ lulling attack in the first half. Though Richard Montgomery missed some of their attempts, nothing was forced. The ball was consistently worked around to the open man, who often turned out to be 6-foot-5 senior forward Nick Jackson, an insideoutside threat who made the Vikings pay from mid-range in the opening half. — ADAM GUTEKUNST
