City, county at ‘stalemate’ on stormwater fees Rockville out about $460,000 in fiscal 2015 n




Helen Zatman, 100, of Brooke Grove Retirement Village in Sandy Spring, sings along with Steve Little of Rockville during Monday’s Centenarians Day celebration.

Celebrating its centenarians


Sandy Spring retirement village fetes its oldest residents BY


One hundred years ago, a gallon of gas cost 12 cents, the first stone of the Lincoln Memorial was put into place and Babe Ruth made his Major League debut. They probably don’t remember those events, but the 10 residents of Brooke Grove Retirement Village who were honored Mon-

day at its Centenarians Day Celebration were alive back then. Among the mothers, fathers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers honored, there was an accomplished artist, a former model, a nun and a schoolteacher — ranging in age from 100 to 103. They were all celebrated at a special dinner with live music, held under a tent on Brooke Grove’s Sandy Spring campus. After words from President Keith Gibb and Life Enrichment Director Brenda Norris, the centenarians were each presented with a certificate and a unique gift, created from the

artwork of centenarian Arabelle Kossiakoff. Brenda Palley, an independent living resident and friend of Kossiakoff, merged the artwork with poetry and mounted it in a frame. Kossiakoff turned 100 on Jan. 8, and lives in Brooke Grove’s independent living cottages. She was born in Baltimore and lived in Winchester, Va., before moving to Montgomery County. Her secret to a long life: drinking beer

Rockville serves as the center of Montgomery County’s government, housing the offices of the county executive, county council, several of the county’s courthouses and other county facilities. But for more than five years, the city and the county have been in an ongoing dispute over whether the county should pay stormwater management fees for its properties in the city. There is “some confusion” over whether county properties are exempt from paying the stormwater fees, said Mark Charles, the chief of Rockville’s Environmental Management Division. In 2012, the state passed a

law requiring the nine largest counties and Baltimore city to implement stormwater management fees to provide funds for cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay and the waterways leading into it. The law contains an exemption for public properties from having to pay the fee, and the county, Montgomery County Public Schools and Montgomery College don’t pay the fees based on a county attorney’s opinion that the fee is an excise tax from which government facilities are exempt. The county is exempt based on state law and an opinion by the Attorney General’s Office, said Joseph Beach, director of the county’s Department of Finance. The 2011 opinion said the city’s stormwater management utility charge would likely be considered a tax, for which the city likely wouldn’t have the authority

Members of the Farquhar Middle School community are patting themselves on the back, as plans to build a new school passed the final hurdle Thursday at the Montgomery County Planning Board. The decision allows Montgomery County Public Schools to move forward with plans to build a new school on property adjacent to the existing William H. Farquhar Middle School in

Olney. Once the new school is completed, the existing school will be demolished and the 20acre property will become a park. The board approved the detailed drawings for the school during a mandatory approval process, plus the plans for the interim park and the final forest conservation plan. “This mandatory referral was to approve the design of the school, and to do an amendment to the site plan to cover issues associated with what is going to become the park,” said Fred Boyd, Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission com-

Rockville teen sues school board, claiming psychologist was bogus School district says man appears to have had necessary license n



A man accused of being a phony psychologist in a lawsuit

Brandon Hall of Rockville, now 18, is suing the board for fraud, emotional distress and negligence, alleging that a school psychologist who counseled him

From 2005 to 2007, Duane Donald Flemmer — calling himself “Dr. David Flemmer” — served as a court-ordered counselor to Hall, whose parents were involved in a contentious divorce. In 2006, Flemmer testified as an expert witness in a custody hear-

Rockville nonprofit Ruling on Hanukkah conflict angers parents battles teen suicide Outdoor program for Hoover 6th-graders not changed n

Ending the Silence going into schools with personal stories n





Every year, about 4,600 Americans age 10 to 24 commit suicide. Also each year, about 157,000 youths in that age group receive medical care for selfinflicted injuries at emergency rooms, according to federal data. The Montgomery County Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness in Rockville wants to reduce those numbers. It’s taking a program, Ending the Silence, into classrooms and showing students how they can help themselves and their friends or relatives escape the pain of mental illness that often leads to suicide. “With this program we are hoping to get people more comfortable speaking about mental illness,” said Myra Jacobs of Chevy Chase, a volunteer with the program. “It’s wonderful to know that the presentation gives someone an opportunity to get help.” Several volunteers were at Northwest High School in Germantown on Monday, speaking to students during their health classes. The program pairs one adult and one young person for each presentation. The adult sets the scene by talking about mental health statistics, warning signs of possible suicide, coping strategies and information on where to get help. There also are videos to go along with the presentation. The younger member of the team shares his personal story of mental illness, trying to show students that it’s hard to know who is dealing with mental illness, and putting a “normal” face on an illness many feel helpless having. Monica Aragon of Germantown, now a student at the University of Maryland, College Park, told the students that she graduated from Northwest, where she had been a good student and was a member of the pom squad. She also was suffering from depression. “I was one of those people jumping around telling students to be happy,” she said. “But I wasn’t happy.”



“I was one of those people jumping around telling students to be happy. But I wasn’t happy,” Monica Aragon tells students at her alma mater, Northwest High School in Germantown, during Monday’s Ending the Silence program.

She said one day a group of poms were talking and she learned that many had tried to commit suicide or cut themselves. “That’s when I realized I was not alone. I [couldn’t] just always hope things [would] be OK,” she said. After that, Aragon said, she talked about her feelings to her family, which supported her. She also tried counseling, but was not comfortable with it, so she found coping skills to help her get over her feelings. She said she paints, keeps a journal and has a dog she loves. “I’m OK now,” she said, “No one is really normal. I think I will always be ‘not normal’ and that’s OK.” Aragon said she shares her story, hoping it will connect with someone. That is what Ending the Silence is all about and why Northwest health teacher Angela Giuffreda asked the nonprofit to bring it to her school. “I think [students] have more pressure at home and at school, socially and with social media,” Giuffreda said. “Self harm has increased and there are more attempts at suicide. This message is a good one.” The volunteers tell students to speak to their friends if they suspect they are considering suicide, talk to a trusted adult or use one of these resources: Teen Line, 310-855-4673, open from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.; text “TEEN” 8398622; or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255. pmcewan@gazette.net

Over the objections by many parents of sixth-graders at Hoover Middle School in Potomac, Montgomery County Public Schools decided not to change the dates of the school’s Outdoor Education Program. Outdoor Ed, a three-day, two-night residential environmental education program, is part of the county curriculum for sixth-graders. But this year, Hoover’s students are scheduled to attend the program Dec. 17-19, coinciding with Hanukkah, which this year is Dec. 1624. A number of the school’s Jewish parents asked for a change as soon as they realized the conflict. Hoover Principal Yong-Mi Kim said she would meet with other school officials to discuss alternate dates.

But in a letter dated Monday, Kim told parents of the decision from that meeting. “We know that Hanukkah is an important holiday for many of our families,” Kim wrote. “Per my earlier communication with you, I met with the Outdoor Environmental Education Programs Office, the Office of School Support and Improvement, and stakeholders from several central offices to advocate for our students and to review all options available to us. After careful consideration of all possible alternatives, the team determined that the dates of the Outdoor Education Program for Hoover Middle School would be held as originally planned on December 17th-19th.” Kim explained that “unfortunately, the available dates to re-schedule Outdoor Education conflicted with previously scheduled events and the instructional program at Hoover Middle School.” She did offer three options for parents and students: • “Give parents and students the option to select the Smith Center (Rockville) as the Out-

door Education site of choice so that students can be easily picked up as needed to attend religious celebrations and then return to the site; • “Provide flexibility in scheduling at the Outdoor Education site so students can celebrate the holiday on their own or with family members while still attending the Outdoor Education Program; or • “Excuse students from participating in the Outdoor Education Program.” Some parents responded to Kim’s letter with anger and disappointment. Susan Schwartz said in an email to Kim that she is “shocked, saddened, and so disheartened.” “How [the school district] can decide to move forward in such a discriminatory and thoughtless manner is shocking to me,” Schwartz wrote. “Did they have the benefit of any of the feedback that you received at Hoover? Do they know just how many members of the community, both Jewish and non-Jewish alike, have been upset by the unfortunate sched-

Scouts honor Sandy Spring lawyer National Capital Area Council, Boy Scouts of America in Bethesda named Vincent J. Napoleon of Sandy Spring, a partner at Nixon Peabody, its 2014 Attorney of the Year in recognition of his industry leadership and dedication to the youth of the Greater Washington metropolitan area. Napoleon is to be recognized at a luncheon Nov. 18. “Vince is an excellent role model for our youth of where perseverance and determination can take you,” Les Baron, Scout executive and CEO of the council, said in a news release. Napoleon, a retired Air Force colonel, focuses on commercial transactions, government contracts and life sciences. He also has worked for General Electric and Lockheed Martin. “This award has a special meaning to me and represents the culmination of my scouting experience which began in 1968 as a Cub Scout,” he said. Napoleon’s son Ian earned his Eagle Scout Award this year. He led a project to combat malaria by taking mosquito nets to poor communities in Nigeria. His father accompanied him on the trip.

GRI, SRES THE FHA BRIDAL REGISTRY One of the biggest hurdles first time home buyers face is how to save enough money for the down payment on a new home. One way to get financial help is to make use of the little known FHA Bridal Registry Program. Created in 1996 by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), this program allows family and friends to make gift payments to a special interest bearing account that is set aside specifically for your home purchase.

uling? Is it really that difficult to find new dates? “ ... Once again, we all state the obvious, would [the school district] do this on Christmas Eve? Calling for children to be segregated out by their religion during a school event sets us back light years and diminishes the pain and struggles of so many people that have brought us to the day that is today,” Schwartz wrote. Parents Michelle Benaim and Avi Benaim also wrote Kim. “This is a horrible message that is being sent to all Jewish families in your school,” Benaim wrote. “I am an observing Jew and my son will not attend any of the planned events.” Schwartz said in an email that she is hopeful there will be another review of the situation and a change of dates. “But I would like you to please understand that I am of the mindset that my biggest hope is still to see this come to a resolution this year that brings everyone a peaceful holiday season,” she wrote.

The advantage of this program is that the paperwork is much simpler than ordinary financial gift requirements, and there is no limit to how large the gift can be.


Even though the program was designed to help marrying couples, it also covers individuals and unmarried couples as well. So if you would rather have your friends and family help you with buying a new home instead of getting you another toaster, talk to your lender about setting up an FHA Bridal Registry.

Schools using new tool to catch signs of student obstacles Plan to use data to determine how to help n



Montgomery County schools are using a new tool designed to detect signs early on that a student might need help to graduate on time. The school board heard at its Monday meeting a presentation about the Early Warning Indicators online tool that launched this school year. The tool takes into account factors from four areas of a student’s education: attendance, behavior, coursework and mobility. Mobility refers to a student

unexpectedly entering or leaving a school. Geoffrey T. Sanderson, associate superintendent of the system’s Office of Shared Accountability, told the board that school system researchers analyzed records of students in the classes of 2011, 2012 and 2013, studying what happened over the course of their education since the first grade. The researchers determined that these four areas contributed to how students perform, he said, and tracking these factors can “determine the trajectory they are on.” Using a series of equations, the tool takes the data from these areas to calculate the likelihood a student will graduate on time.

School officials said Monday that the tool is aimed at helping staff catch signs in these areas early on so that a school can intervene and support students where they need it. It will also help staff understand what level of support a student may need — low, medium or high. “It is proactive,” Sanderson said. “It’s about as real-time as I believe we can get these days.” Superintendent Joshua P. Starr said the tool uses student data that schools already have but puts it together “in a way that creates opportunity for action.” Early Warning Indicators can generate data at multiple levels, including for the district, a school, a student group or an



individual student. A student’s profile will include factors in the four areas that can be warning signs — such as their attendance, performance on certain tests and any suspensions — as well as other information. The school system plans to respond to student needs through efforts at individual schools, in the system’s central office and with outside partners. Some issues that affect students, such as food and housing insecurity, Starr said, will require the system to work with others in the county. Starr said the system has used schools’ rates of students who receive free and reduced price meals to determine where to allocate resources in the past. Performance must now play a part in that process, he said. “We can actually use these data systemwide to look at that,”


he said. The tool is not done and “there are many unanswered questions,” Starr said. The system will look at how schools use the tool this year and determine effective ways it was used. School board member Christopher S. Barclay asked school officials who made the presentation exactly what “triggers action” when a student shows early warning signs. Sanderson said the “net effect” of all the factors is considered to determine what kind of support a student may need. The school system should be “cautious” as it uses the tool, board member Michael Durso said, saying it might lead schools to “unintentionally” create another label for students who are struggling. Board Vice President Patri-

cia O’Neill said she is also concerned about possible labels. “I don’t want a child in third grade to be labeled as, this is our future dropout,” she said. Starr said school officials had debated the issue of labeling students. The tool is expected to identify that a student is struggling and needs help, he said, but then that need will be met. “This is all about intervening early and breaking cycles that exist,” he said. Board member Judith Docca said she thinks principals are already aware that the factors the tool analyzes can indicate a student might be facing problems. “I think that’s the important part of this conversation, that we’re going to be giving some tools to our staff as to what to do with the things they do see already,” she said.

Rockville offers matching grants for community organizations Grants have provided more than $14,000 over past three years




Community groups and neighborhood associations in Rockville can apply for city grants to help support their

community programs. Applications for the grants of up to $1,000 in matching funds through Rockville’s Organizing Communities and Neighborhoods Matching Grant Program will be accepted through Oct. 15. Qualified groups can get up to $1,000, but must provide a cash or inkind match of at least as much as the grant amount requested. Funding for the program is limited.

Projects are considered by a committee of city staff and are evaluated on the neighborhood’s ability to provide matching funds, levels of community involvement, project readiness and the tangible benefit to the neighborhood. Projects must meet at least one of several criteria: • Support the purchase of technology or supplies that directly support an existing community program. • Address a specific community

need. • Support neighborhood crime prevention. • Support local outreach and organizing. • Support neighborhood planning or preservation. • Support social events designed to nurture a sense of community pride. In fiscal 2014, the grant program awarded $4,400 for the Fallsgrove Halloween parade, the Register of Wills’

Backpacks for the Homeless program, community events for the East Rockville Civic Association, tree replacement and cleanup for the New Mark Commons Homeowners Association, National Night Out in Heritage Park and a community party for the Rockshire Homeowners Association. In the past three fiscal years, the grants have provided $14,089 in funding.

Rockville report says Bunker mentality sets in at Rockville golf course slated to bring more deer getting hit Repairs RedGate up to par n


Deer involved in 143 crashes in city in 2013 n



Deer were involved in 143 vehicle crashes on Rockville roads in 2013, the most in six years, according to a report by the city’s recreation and parks department. The report comes as officials consider ways to deal with the populations of deer that live in its parks and woodlands, and sometimes in the backyards of the city’s neighborhoods. The number of crashes reported is only part of the issue, as many incidents go unreported, said Steve Mader, superintendant of parks and facilities for Rockville. The 143 incidents reflect the number of dead deer that are found in city rights of way. In 2008, there were 133 reports. The numbers range from 109 in 2011 to the 143 in 2013. Incidents tend to increase in October, November and December as the deer become more active during mating season, Mader said. According to the report, from 2008 to 2013, the month with the most incidents was November, with 141, followed by October with 102 and December with 62. In 2013, the city placed a digital sign warning drivers to watch for deer at six locations around the city for one week. It’s difficult to measure the effort’s impact, but several deer were found in the roadway within a mile of the sign, according to the report. In 2013, the city used game cameras to try to estimate deer populations at two locations. A camera in Rockmead Park next to Fallsmead Elementary School estimated a population of 36 to 40 deer in the 100 acres around the park, and as many as 230 deer per square mile in that location. Another camera at a Lower Watts Branch location between Scott Drive and Wootton Parkway next to Thomas S. Wootton High School estimated a population of 10 to 12 deer in the surrounding 100 acres, and anywhere from 62 to 77 deer per square mile. The average deer in an urban area lives six to 10 years, Mader said. Mader, the mayor and City Council also discussed the threat of Lyme disease that is transmitted by the so-called deer tick, officially known as the blacklegged tick. Montgomery County had about 300 cases in 2011, although there’s no way to tell whether those cases were contracted in the county, Mader said. He said there are about 1,200 cases per year statewide. Although the tick that spreads the disease is often associated with deer, it is carried by a variety of mammals, Mader said.

Incidents tend to increase in October, November and December as the deer become more active during mating season. There’s evidence on both sides of the argument on whether reducing the size of a local deer herd reduces the number of cases of Lyme disease, he said. rmarshall@gazette.net

Staff at Rockville’s RedGate golf course will work on getting its bunkers and other areas repaired to make the course more inviting for players. The bunkers are the “weak spot on the golf course,” said Dan Evers, director of agronomy for Billy Casper Golf, which leased the course from the city in 2011. Officials plan to spend $20,000 on the bunkers in the next year, he said. Evers and other company representatives briefed the Rockville mayor and council at their meeting Monday night. Evers said the course’s fairways and greens have improved, and the staff is working with the city arborist to make sure it’s complying with rules for thinning some trees around

the tees on several holes. Memberships have risen each year since the company took over the lease, according to a city report, increasing from 106 in 2012 to 119 in 2013 and 130 from January to June this year. The course faces a significant challenge in competing with the nine courses run by Montgomery County, said Brian Wilcox, the course’s general manager. The changes to the course generated praise from some local golfers who spoke Monday. Sean Gasque of Rockville said he’s an avid golfer who first played RedGate in 1976. He stopped going six years ago because the course was “unplayable,” he said. But Gasque said he’s played 12 times this year, and while the course still needs work, it’s much better now. John Kemple of Kensington told the mayor and council that he’s played at RedGate since

1980 and the bunkers on the course are “horrible.” Mayor Bridget Donnell Newton said she hopes the course’s staff puts more of an emphasis on areas that affect the experience of golfers, such as repairing bunkers and

greens, than on making repairs to other areas at the facility. Newton said she’d like to see the see the course go back to submitting annual reports on its operations to the city. rmarshall@gazette.net

Olney tapped for project Andrews: Economy, energy among top priorities Bethesda Republican running that could prevent outages for House in District 16 n

Pilot program will design, but not build, a microgrid




After severe weather left Olney in the dark several times in the past few years, a study is underway that could prevent long power outages. Olney was recently selected for twoyear pilot program by the U.S. Department of Energy that involves a microgrid project for its town center that could be a model for the future of electric power service. A microgrid is a small-scale power grid that can operate independently or in conjunction with the area’s main electrical grid. The project is to design and study a microgrid modeled for Olney Town Center, but does not include construction of the microgrid. County Councilwoman Nancy Navarro (D-Dist. 4) of Silver Spring, who represents Olney, said she supports the study and selection of the Olney Town Center location. Navarro urged the project team to select Olney as a test community. “The Olney Town Center and the immediate area serve a highly populated residential community and offer a wide variety of essential services, including a hospital and medical facilities, schools, fire and police stations, supermarkets, banks and gas stations,” she said in a statement. “During major events that cause wide-spread outages, providing uninterrupted electric service to critical community assets like these will offer significant assistance in the coordinated response to public emergencies.” The Department of Energy’s Na-

tional Energy Technology Laboratory recently selected a team led by the Microgrid Institute to design, simulate and test microgrid control systems for two Maryland communities served by Pepco: Olney and Ritchie Station Marketplace in Largo. The agency is expected to provide about $1.2 million for the project during a two-year period beginning this year. Michael Burr, director of the Microgrid Institute, said Olney Town Center is an ideal setting for a community microgrid. Burr said the idea is to increase local resilience to storms and other causes of widespread outages. “If a community has local power generators and the ability to manage the electricity output from those generators, then that community will be able to better maintain vital public services through utility outages,” he said. “That’s the basic idea of a microgrid — to keep the lights on locally during a utility outage.” Burr said whether a microgrid actually ever gets built in Olney depends on the answers to many questions. “This project will seek to answer some of those questions — specifically the ones involving how a microgrid could actually function in Olney,” he said. “But many other questions will remain to be answered outside the scope of this DOE program.” The program will take two years to complete, from initial system design through lab test reporting. “After that, the lessons learned from this research will be available to help other projects develop community microgrids, potentially at Olney and elsewhere,” Burr said. thogan@gazette.net



John Andrews, a Republican running for the House of Delegates in District 16, says economic growth is one of his top priorities. “I think that the business climate is a huge one — making sure that the economic conditions are favorable for ... growth,” he said. Andrews said the state needs lower taxes and pro-growth energy and transportation policies. For a start, that means developing the state’s natural gas resources by drilling in Western Maryland and allowing exports in the eastern part of the state. “I think that would be a huge economic boon to the state, as well as contributing to increased energy stability,” he said. “More, cheaper energy is good for everyone, and it will also reduce our reliance on out-of-state coal.” He also wants to increase the state’s use of nuclear energy, and he supports expanding the Calvert Cliffs plant in Lusby. And as for transportation? “Kill the Purple Line,” Andrews said. “That will not reduce congestion. I think our transportation priorities should be all about reducing congestion and keeping our infrastructure safe.” The proposed 16-mile light-rail link between Bethesda and New Carrollton will not reduce traffic because so much more housing is expected to be built near future Purple Line stations, Andrews said. “The whole point of the Purple Line is to increase development,” he said. Rather than building the Purple Line, Andrews said, Maryland officials should prioritize a second crossing

over the Potomac River in Montgomery County, either by expanding the American Legion bridge on the Capital Beltway or building a second bridge. He also Andrews supports restricting revenues from the gas tax to building and maintaining roads, bridges and tunnels, rather than transit projects. Andrews, a Tennessee native who has lived in Bethesda for about five years, said he has become more interested in local politics the longer he’s lived in the area. The Montgomery County Republicans asked if he would run for House in District 16, and he accepted. A Republican candidate running in the Democratic stronghold of Montgomery County, Andrews said it’s important to prioritize policies with appeal on both sides of the aisle. One such bipartisan issue is redistricting. Andrews said he wants to see the state adopt a nonpartisan redistricting system, preferably an independent board using a computer program to guide redrawing voting districts. A panel appointed by the governor drew the current district maps, which some have criticized as giving an advantage to Democratic candidates. “If you look at the map of our congressional districts, it’s horrible, and it’s a disgrace,” he said. Another issue that doesn’t cut squarely along partisan lines is school choice, Andrews said. There is some support for school choice in Baltimore, he said, and even in Montgomery County, whose schools are among the best in the nation, there is room for improvement, particularly in fields such as math and science that are especially important

to the economy. Andrews said he supports setting up an independent board to oversee charter schools in the state, rather than letting local school boards oversee them. “The school boards ... tend to be controlled by the teachers unions — they have a vested interest in not expanding charter schools,” Andrews said. “I would change that.” Children should have the opportunity to go to the best school in their neighborhood, Andrews said, whether that is a public school or not. He said he would support opportunity scholarships, similar to those available in Washington, D.C., for students with economic need. Andrews said he is worried about Common Core standards, which have started affecting curriculum in public schools in the past couple of years. “I think they’re weak in many places,” especially math, he said. “I think that providing concerned parents with alternatives to traditional public schools, particularly programs that focus on science, technology, engineering and math, would be beneficial when the schools are as relatively good as they are in Montgomery County.” Election Day is Nov. 4. District 16 covers Bethesda, Chevy Chase and part of Potomac, and voters elect three delegates. The other Republican candidates for House are Rose Li and Lynda del Castillo. Democratic incumbents William C. “Bill” Frick and Ariana Kelly are running for re-election, and newcomer Marc Korman is also running as a Democrat.

Owen-Williams seeks at-large council seat n

Taxes, transportation, immigration among focuses of campaign BY


When Adol T. Owen-Williams got his first paycheck from his job at Rockville’s Raindancer restaurant in summer 1980, he was puzzled. He had worked 40 hours at $5 an hour, but the check was for only $127, and Owen-Williams was left wondering where the other $73 had gone. These days, as a financial adviser, he understands that taxes are taken out of a paycheck before the worker gets it. But he would like to use his financial knowledge to help “macro-manage” the county’s budget as a member of the Montgomery County Council. He is seeking one of the four at-large council seats, along with fellow Republicans Shelley Skolnick, Robert Dyer and Chris P. Fiotes, Green Party candidate Tim Willard and Democratic incumbents Marc Elrich, Nancy


Floreen, George L. Leventhal and Hans Riemer. If he’s elected, Owen-Williams said, he would Owen-Williams call for an audit to identify the many redundancies the county spends money on. “I’ve searched for years. I don’t know what the budget is,” he said. Owen-Williams said he personally knows at least 20 people who have left the county in the past three years because of the taxes and the amount it costs to live here. Unless someone is getting government assistance or making more than $100,000 a year, it’s very hard to live in Montgomery, he said. He’s concerned about the




extent to which the county relies on government jobs to feed its economy, and would like to see more jobs such as telemarketing come back to Montgomery. Owen-Williams said he thinks that for security reasons the federal government will eventually disperse many federal agencies to various locations around the country, drastically hurting Montgomery’s economy. “When they go, we’re going to become Detroit,” he said. Transportation in the county is a major quality-of-life issue for residents, and is emotionally and physically draining, he said. The problem goes beyond just Interstate 270, he said, citing several problem areas near his North Potomac home. He also would like to see one or perhaps two more bridges built from Maryland across the Potomac River into Virginia. Owen-Williams also criti-

cized the county’s “very liberal illegal immigration policy.” The son of African immigrants, Owen-Williams said he strongly supports immigration but it’s not fair when illegal immigrants cut in line in front of people who are waiting their turn. “I am extremely pro-immigration,” Owen-Williams said. “I wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t.” Owen-Williams ran for the council in 2006 and for the state Senate against Sen. Jennie Forehand (D-Dist. 17) in 2010, both times unsuccessfully. To spread his message this time, he said, he goes door-todoor and speaks wherever he can. He also makes appearances through the county’s Republican Central Committee, he said. “I’m wherever I can be,” he said. rmarshall@gazette.net

Bongino takes on Delaney in 6th District n

GOP congressional hopeful says jobs is key issue



Dan Bongino knows that a Republican running for Congress in Maryland has an uphill battle, but it’s one he believes must be fought. He is also 100 percent confident he will win, he said. Bongino, 39, is challenging the one-term Democratic incumbent, John K. Delaney of Potomac, in the 6th District. Bongino spent 12 years as a Secret Service agent, protecting Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, among other duties. He resigned in 2011 and “began a grassroots campaign for the U.S. Senate against the feared Maryland Democratic Machine,” according to his website. He lost that race to Democrat Benjamin Cardin of Pikesville. “I saw the problem of exploding bureaucracy and wanted to do something,” Bongino said. “We’ve really lost touch with representing the people. The

rules that apply to the elite D.C. ruling class don’t apply to the rank and file. Good people need to stand up.” Bongino Bongino wrote a book about his views of insider Washington, “Life Inside the Bubble: Why a Top-Ranked Secret Service Agent Walked Away from It All.” He said the most important issue facing the 6th District is jobs. “Every issue is important, but you have to triage,” he said. “The biggest problem we have is the job environment in Maryland. The unemployment rate just went up again.” Bongino compared Garrett and Allegany counties to South Dakota in terms of the abundance of shale oil, a resource to consider in terms of unemployment and tax revenue, he said. Asked about hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, a method of injecting high-pressure fluid into the ground to get that oil out, Bongino said, “I’m a supporter of local control. They can make that decision. The ques-

“I saw the problem of exploding bureaucracy and wanted to do something.” Dan Bongino tion is, Is the tax revenue worth it? The downsides are far outweighed by [the positive].” He is favors a balanced budget, by controlling spending. “The solutions are out there, but there’s nobody with the guts to do something about it,” he said. “Nobody’s talking about it.”

District 6 covers a long swath of Maryland, running from the far western border to the Capital Beltway and River Road in Bethesda. It includes Allegany, Garrett and Washington counties, plus parts of Frederick and Montgomery. George Gluck of the Green Party also is running for the seat. Bongino lives with his wife and two daughters in Severna Park. Congressional representatives need not live in the district they represent, just in the state. Bongino said that, if elected, he would move to the district, although he said it is not an issue with voters. “I have knocked on 15,000 doors and it’s never come up,” he said.

law, it’s unlikely the county would change its position, leading to the current “stalemate” on the stormwater issue, he said. At its Sept. 8 meeting, the city’s mayor and council made the stormwater issue an item to monitor in the General Assembly’s upcoming session, which starts in January. If the government agencies were subject to the fee, the county school system would owe $236,861 for fiscal 2015, Montgomery College $100,374 and Montgomery County $126,281, according to a memorandum

from Rockville city staff. According to the memo, city staff and the city’s lobbyist in Annapolis will watch for legislation and any discussions that could lead to a bill to require owners of public property to pay the stormwater fees. The city began billing of its stormwater fee for all properties in the city in July 2009, Charles said. The money goes to run the city’s stormwater program, which helps mitigate pollution from runoff of buildings, parking lots and streets by building treat-

ment systems, ways to move stormwater and improved flood control projects, he said. Rockville gets many benefits from being the county seat, but the stormwater fee is one way the city is hurt, Rockville Mayor Bridget Donnell Newton said. The county’s failure to pay means other ratepayers must pay more, and everyone should share the burden for these environmental protections, she said. “It really goes to the issue of fairness,” she said.

Continued from Page A-1 Schools, confirmed that Flemmer worked for the school system from 1998 and 2010, but could not provide a list of the schools where he worked. Flemmer would have worked with different schools as a school psychologist, Tofig wrote in an email. Tofig also wrote that the certifications required to be a school psychologist are not the same as those needed to be a clinical psychologist — and Flemmer appears to have had the necessary license from the Maryland State Department of Education to be a school psychologist. A spokesman for the Maryland State Department of Education confirmed Monday that a David Flemmer held an advanced professional certificate in school psychology — issued by the department — from July 2003 until June 2013. Flemmer had a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Loyola College in Maryland, according to the spokesman. The records office of the school — which became Loyola University in 2009 — confirmed that a Duane David Flemmer received a master’s degree in clinical psychology from the school, but could not say when. The Flemmer in Loyola’s records has the same birthday as the Duane Donald Flemmer listed in online court records. The school system had not had a chance to review the lawsuit as of Friday and generally does not comment on litigation, Tofig wrote. “We have no idea how many kids he counseled. We have no idea how many parents he counseled,” said Ronald A. Karp, Hall’s attempts to thwart it. “Although we still believe that the process to get here was flawed, we finally feel that [the school system’s] staff, particularly Mr. Craig Shuman, realized that this has a dramatic and previously unrecognized impact on our way of life and they made the needed adjustments to their site and building design,” Tom Hyde said. “It is a shame the extent that we had to go to have our concerns recognized. “All that being said, we un-

The lawsuit — in which Flemmer’s estate is named as co-defendent — seeks damages for fraud, infliction of emotional distress, and negligent hiring, retention and supervision. “It’s difficult to believe they actually checked out any of his credentials,” Karp said. The report from the Maryland Board of Professional Counselors and Therapists states that Flemmer applied for a job as a psychologist with an unnamed employer in North Dakota in 2010. He presented a resume claiming he was a “Maryland Licensed Psychologist,” as well as fake licenses ostensibly produced by the Maryland State Board of Examiners of Psychologists and a forged letter claiming Flemmer had held a psychology license continuously since 1998, the report said. The report also indicated Flemmer claimed to have completed accredited doctorate programs in psychology, but a board investigation found those programs were not accredited. Flemmer also was an adjunct professor of educational psychology at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore from 2000 to 2011. Jim Campbell, a school spokesman, said that when Flemmer began teaching, only a master’s degree was needed to become an adjunct professor. dleaderman@gazette.net Staff Writer Lindsay Powers contributed to this report. derstand that this has the potential to be of great benefit to the community and we wish them success going forward,” he added.

Quinn running for governor as Libertarian candidate His five-point plan includes legalizing marijuana and lowering taxes n



Shawn Quinn did not get into politics expecting to run for governor of Maryland. Instead, the 52-year-old Lusby resident — who ran unsuccessfully in 2010 for the House of Delegates in District 29C — said he was looking to be a lieutenant governor candidate. But the Libertarian Party convinced Quinn that his energy and ideas were what the party needed in a governor. “They’re like, ‘You are our candidate,’” he said. Quinn accepted his party’s nomination and is running for Maryland governor as a Libertarian along with his

running mate Lorenzo Gaztanaga. Of the two, Gaztanaga has more experience in politics and running for office, but likes to help more than he likes to lead, Quinn Quinn said. Quinn faces Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown (D) and Larry Hogan (R) in the Nov. 4 election. He might not have intended to run for governor, but Quinn has hit the campaign trail hard, traveling across the state speaking to as many groups and individuals as possible. Quinn is running on a five-point plan that includes eight-year term limits for all elected officials, lowering the state sales tax to 3 percent, legalizing marijuana, reviewing the state’s regulations and condensing the laws on the books.

“I believe that the government is supposed to represent the people,” he said, adding that a Quinn administration would have two hours each day set aside for citizens to come talk to their governor. “You don’t see that in government these days. They have their own vision and you need to get in line or get out of the way.” He said his administration would turn to, not away, the ideas of citizens. “I don’t know everything. I’m just a common everyday guy,” he said. However, Maryland has too many laws on the books, and those laws are forcing businesses out of state, he said. “If we can get some businesses to stay here, we can get jobs,” he said. “If we can get jobs, we can get more tax dollars for the state.” Quinn said he would use the power of the veto to stop new legislation if necessary. “If they write a bill that’s more than

10 pages, I’m going to veto it,” he said. “Because if it’s more than 10 pages, they’re trying to hide stuff from the people.” He said he would also veto any bill not in understandable, everyday language. As for marijuana, Quinn said the war on drugs is a waste of money. Quinn said Marylanders’ taxes pay to keep inmates in prison on drug charges. Once released, ex-convicts often struggle to find jobs and support themselves and their families, relying on state services. Treating marijuana the same way the state treats alcohol and cigarettes makes more sense, he said. And the money generated by taxing marijuana could fund rehabilitation centers for those who struggle with drug addiction. “If we need a war, we need a war on addiction, not on drugs,” he said. Beyond his five-point plan, if elected, he said he would work to reduce the per-

Kirkland seeks blue-collar voters in District 1 Council candidate says inner suburbs are pushing out non-elites n



As a candidate from District 1 for the Montgomery County Council, Jim Kirkland would like to help Bethesda find its inner ex-urb. Kirkland, who has lived in Bethesda for most of his 57 years, says the inner suburbs of the county have turned into a haven for elites who have crowded out more blue-collar residents from the area. District 1 is large and diverse, stretching from the Washington suburbs of Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Potomac and Kensington through western Montgomery to the Frederick County border north of Poolesville. He is challenging incumbent Democrat Roger Berliner of Bethesda, who has represented the district since 2006.

Kirkland describes himself as a “libertarian-style” Republican and said he would like to bring Kirkland more of a rural feel back to the inner suburbs. Kirkland, who operates a lawn care business, is basing part of his campaign on property and vehicle rights, fighting what he called unfair restrictions on work trucks, small recreation vehicles and trailers. Part of the reason people buy detached homes is to get away from rules imposed by landlords, he said. Kirkland said he and others have been harassed by people looking to make Bethesda a more exclusive center of whitecollar professionals. He also would like the county to encourage companies

to set up multiple shifts of workers to reduce traffic in the area and help promote nightlife. Under Kirkland’s plan, companies would have older workers or ones with families come in at 9 a.m. and leave at 5 p.m., while younger workers would come in a few hours later and work later. Kirkland said the change would help reduce rush hour traffic, plus boost the county’s nightlife by letting younger workers go out at night during the week because they would be able to go in to work later the next morning. Kirkland said the county police should stop conducting drunken driving checkpoints because it prevents some people from casual dining by intimidating them from moderate social drinking, he said. Montgomery County loses millions of dollars because many young people choose to go into Washington when they go out, and even choose to live there rather than in the county because it provides more nightlife

options, he said. The nightlife scene in Montgomery is “comatose,” and a report last year from a county task force on improving the county’s nightlife missed the mark on what changes needed to be made, he said. rmarshall@gazette.net

sonal income tax to 2 percent across the board with no deductions. Like most Libertarians, Quinn believes law-abiding citizens who don’t harm others should be left alone by the government. “As you can see, I’m big on people’s rights,” he said. “I’m probably the only one running saying, ‘if it’s one of your rights, it should be defended.’ I didn’t spend 20 years overseas getting shot at for us to sit there and say it’s OK to get rid of this or that right.” Quinn spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy as an aviation electrician and air crewman. He said he retired from the Navy in 2000 and went to work as a deputy sheriff in Newport News, Va., and then a city corrections officer before moving back to Maryland to drive a truck hauling jet fuel for a contractor at the Patuxtent River Naval Air Station in Lexington Park. kalexander@gazette.net

Rockville makes Money’s top 50 Citing its diverse population and the amount of parkland available for residents to use, Money magazine has named Rockville one of the nation’s best places to live. The city ranked 24th on the magazine’s list of the 50 cities and towns with populations of 50,000 to 300,000. Rockville’s proximity to Washington, D.C., and the surrounding high-tech area also contributed to its ranking, according to a city release. Money also cited the number of large employers in Rockville, including Lockheed Martin, Westat and Choice Hotels International. Bowie ranked 28th, while Columbia/Ellicott City ranked sixth.










Three on bench, one challenger for circuit judge

This week, The Gazette starts its endorsements for candidates running in the November general election. In the race for four Montgomery County circuit judges, circumstances have changed significantly since the June primary. At the time, we confidently supported the four sitting judges over the lone challenger, Daniel Patrick Connell, for four circuit court seats. We still feel that three judges — Nelson W. Rupp Jr., Joan E. Ryon and Gary E. Bair — should be returned to the bench. All are capable and experienced; they impressed us with their acumen and demeanor. For the fourth seat, however, we have reservations. In April, we backed Audrey Anne Creighton, the last member of a team with Rupp, Ryon and Bair. We still respect her credentials. But we have questions about a legal case in which she has become entangled. In May, Creighton was abducted by a man with whom she had been living — Rickley Senning, who has multiple criminal convictions. Creighton, as a public defender, has represented him, according to The Washington Post. In May, Senning allegedly forced Creighton to drive him around, yanking her hair and screaming at her, according to police. Creighton jumped from the car outside a store and called 911. Senning drove away and crashed into another car. He was taken to Suburban Hospital, but fled. A week later, he was caught in Miami. Creighton obtained a protective order against him. Senning’s case is scheduled for trial in November, after the election. It’s not the episode of abuse that has us backing away from our previous support. It’s other details and questions surrounding the case, such as whether Creighton was forthright with police about her relationship with Senning. Connell, in a letter to the three other judges, raised several other questions about Creighton’s connections to Senning, particularly while she was a judge and he was a defendant. We invited Creighton to meet again with our editorial board to address questions. She declined. We understand why Creighton, as a judge and a victim, would keep quiet while Senning’s case is prosecuted. But she’s also a candidate; voters deserve to hear from her, to whatever limit she can speak. It’s possible that this matter is, or will be, before a state commission that reviews complaints about judges. Until we know more, we must withhold our support of Creighton’s candidacy. Connell, a former senior rule of law adviser with the State Department, has advised civilian judges and police in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has worked as a public defender and ran unsuccessfully for circuit judge in 2004. We’re not sure he’d make a good circuit judge, but for now, he’s a better choice in this race.

McCarthy for state’s attorney

This year’s race for Montgomery County state’s attorney pits a seasoned, no-nonsense, prosecutor, incumbent Democrat John J. McCarthy, against an earnest newcomer to politics, Republican Dan Gaskill, a defense lawyer. Gaskill has significant credentials. He works with many juveniles and, with a master’s in social work, expresses a sincere empathy for the young, addicted and mentally ill people who account for a sizable share of defendants. If elected, he’d focus on transforming the county’s “legal system” into a “justice system” that’s more intent on cutting crime than locking up offenders. He proposes a stronger emphasis on rehabilitation and treatment, rather than punishment. He says the county’s assistant state’s attorneys need more discretion in negotiating sentences with defense lawyers. Gaskill, an ex-Marine sergeant, says he’d aggressively go after after police officers who are dishonest or abusive, especially to minorities. While these are worthy goals, we admire McCarthy’s work in many years as a Montgomery County career prosecutor. Before becoming state’s attorney in 2006, he was deputy state’s attorney for 10 years and also headed all of the office’s major trial divisions. Overseeing upward of 25,000 cases a year and a staff comprising 72 prosecutors, plus investigators and other support staff, McCarthy touts his office’s role in helping cut Montgomery’s crime rate by twice the national average. His office helps operate several innovative initiatives, such as truancy court for students, drug court for addicts and the Family Justice Center, a “one-stop” resource for abused domestic partners and children. He says his next big challenge, if re-elected, is reducing crime against the county’s growing senior population, including financial crimes and physical neglect or abuse. The crimes can be hard to detect, because they’re usually reported not by the victims, but by others. Raising public awareness of these crimes must be a major tool in curbing them, he says. Despite Gaskill’s ideas and passion, McCarthy, on the basis of his experience and skill, deserves a third term as the county’s chief prosecutor.

BRT: A bad trip?

Editor, As chairman of the Montgomery County Council’s Transportation, Infrastructure, Energy and Environment Committee, I was proud to lead our Council to a 9-0 vote in support of the county’s bus rapid transit (BRT) initiative. Blair Lee uses a recent column to argue that we are making a costly mistake (Bus Rapid Madness, Sept 10). He is wrong. A BRT system using dedicated lanes with WiFi that runs every 10 minutes will attract “riders of choice.” Commuting will be better not worse. Mr. Lee argues that the county can ill afford a $2 billion system. That is a classic red herring. No one suggested that we will build the entire system at once. Rather we will focus on Md. 355 and U.S. 29. This we can do. Property values throughout the county will increase and more businesses will locate here. Our county needs a strong tax base to provide the quality of services our residents need and desire. Roger Berliner, Bethesda Councilman Berliner, Your letter is long on bluster and wishful thinking and short on rebuttal. You ducked all the tough questions such as: • Cost. You and your colleagues remain mum on who’s going to pay BRT’s $2 billion (and growing) capital cost and $89 million (and growing) annual operating deficit? There’s no BRT money in the federal, state or county budgets, I checked. Not to worry, you say, because you’re going to build BRT in phases starting with U.S. 29 and Md. 355. “This we can do,” you say. Who’s “we” and what’s “can do”? Delay more school construction to build BRT? Would you buy something if the salesman wouldn’t tell you how much it costs and who’s going to pay for it? • Logistics. You paint a pretty picture of happy commuters enjoying their laptops while zipping to work on sleek BRT buses. A more realistic scenario is this: I wait in the rain outside my home for a feeder bus to take me to a BRT depot that lacks any park-

ing. I board the BRT bus which drops me off eight blocks from my workplace so I wait for a local bus (it’s still raining) to get me there. After work, it’s the same process, in reverse. You call this “improved mobility”, MY MARYLAND I call it waiting for three buses. BLAIR LEE Nor do you explain how motorists make turns across BRT lanes or negotiate intersections where BRT buses have “traffic signal priority.” Montgomery’s own traffic data forecasts a 79-minute rush-hour commute for U.S. 29 motorists inching the 2½ miles between the White Oak Shopping Center and the Beltway. Is that your idea of making “commuting life better, not worse”? • Tax Base. After decades of driving away businesses and taxpayers, county officials suddenly face a fiscal crisis. So they’re approving mega-projects while relaxing traffic standards. BRT is the fig leaf that’s supposed to cover this retreat from adequate traffic management. You say “more businesses will locate here.” But your colleague, Councilman Marc Elrich says special property taxes on businesses will pay for BRT. So what’s MoCo’s pitch, “relocate your business here to help pay billions for BRT”? Good luck with that. As part owner of a commercial real estate firm, I’m all for growing the tax base. But I’m not writing this as a businessman, I’m writing this as a resident taxpayer and motorist. And when the rest of MoCo’s residents discover what you’re up to, there’s going to be hell to pay. Dear Mr. Lee, Thank you for being the sole voice of reason regarding BRT. I have lived in Montgomery County since 1970 and am a lifelong

liberal. Never in that time have I seen such a dumb and expensive idea. I live right off U.S. 29 and am also a “treehugger” environmentalist. With that said, I can assure you that I would never take BRT as it is cheaper and more convenient to drive. And if that’s the way an environmentalist feels, imagine how my more normal neighbors feel. You mention that the county is trying to protect its tax base. Does the county realize that if BRT is implemented, home values bordering the routes will likely go down further eroding the tax base? Allan Vecchione, Silver Spring Allan, The whole point of BRT is to make driving so painful by reducing traffic lanes that we all take BRT buses. Councilman Berliner calls them “riders of choice,” I call them “riders of force.” Blair Mr. Lee, Thanks for pointing out some of the many idiocies of the BRT scheme in your recent Gazette column. I noticed the letter published below your column supported BRT and touted the MAX program in Kansas City. A quick review of MAX shows that it is not a useful example — it is a single, six-mile long linear route, and in the decade plus it has been there, has spurred no appreciable economic development. So much for great examples. Chip Heartfield Chip, I guess most businesses hesitate to move to a county run by people dumb enough to support a BRT.

Skills are the new currency in the workplace

The Greater Washington economy has been more seriously impacted by the recession than previously thought. According to George Mason University economist Stephen Fuller, “In relative terms, we are worse than Detroit … we need business investment that supports value-added jobs ... we need to attract companies with higherpaying jobs.” In order to attract and grow jobs in Montgomery County and the Washington, D.C., region, we must develop a work force to meet the needs of employers. To do that, we must re-evaluate the value we place on skills. If we fail to, the skills gap — the gap between the skills a work force has and the skills employers demand — will only widen and employers will continue to grow their businesses in other communities. There is disagreement between employers and educators about how prepared students are for the workplace. According to a recent McKinsey report, 87 percent of educators believe students with post-secondary education are prepared for the workplace, compared to less than half of all employers. This disparity is even more alarming given that the Harvard Business School has reported that nearly two-thirds of U.S. jobs require some education beyond a high school degree and 85 percent of jobs in Maryland and Washington also require additional schooling.

It is important for employers and job seekers to recognize that more education doesn’t necessarily mean a four-year college degree. A Brookings Institute study found that 50 percent of STEM careers don’t require a four-year degree, and further highlights that nearly 30 percent of associate’s degree recipients in the U.S. earn more than those with a bachelor’s degree. Effectively, what all studies point to is the growing need for developing the skills employers are demanding. But even if someone sets out to pursue a “demand-driven” approach to education, it’s difficult to find a scholastic path that aligns educational offerings to employer needs. Though a simple concept, it’s not how most education providers or employers are currently designed to operate. Historically, those who hire and those who educate have not communicated effectively. It’s time to change this. A critical first step in this new approach is for local employers to identify the skills they actually need to hire and shift away from traditional, vague job description proxies like “years of experience.” Doing so will clarify the functions a candidate should be able to perform and give employers an objective measure to assess candidates. With this focus on skills, employers can move past the inefficient hiring process of matching key words between resumes and job descriptions, and toward a more efficient

system to match candidates based on their skill set today and reward the development of skills throughout their career. This approach would allow a job seeker to review their own qualifications for a position and identify and pursue specific educational opportunities to develop a needed skill. It would also allow education providers to incorporate employer-required skills into curricula to increase student success. Thereby allowing employers, job seekers, and education providers to trade in a currency of skills — the skills an employer needs, the skills a job-seeker has, and the skills an educator can provide. It’s time to create this skills marketplace in Montgomery County and the Washington region to connect employers, educators and job seekers to better align the workforce to the needs of employers. It’s a win for employers, job seekers and educators alike, but most importantly, it’s a win for our economy. By actively investing in skills development of our local work force, we ensure our ability to overcome the skills gap, meet the needs of local employers and signal to others that this region has the tools to answer their talent needs.

Hearings by mail would save time, money

I sympathize with the writer and the outrageously inequitable situation he describes [“How to beat a $40 speed camera ticket,” letter, Sept. 10]. I represent bus companies and clients in traffic related manners occurring on the northeast corridor between Virginia and New York City. Most of these matters are resolved in the jurisdictions where they occur, expeditiously by mail — except in Maryland and in particular, in Montgomery County. The state of Maryland and Montgomery County require defendants accused of parking, standing, automatic speed and automatic red light violations to appear in person to stand trial if they wish to contest the violations and defend their rights. In addition Montgomery County imposes a “trial fee” on defendants. Paying the fines for these violations involve no dreaded “points.” Washington, D.C., Delaware, Virginia and New York City and many other jurisdic-

tions allow defendants to challenge parking, standing, automatic speed and red light violations using the “hearing by mail” process. Hearings by mail are efficient, inexpensive and convenient, and provide the judiciary with a process to resolve a large number of cases fairly and expeditiously without appearance or formal trials. Neighboring jurisdictions provide for both “hearings by mail” and also offer an appeal process, as well. The current Maryland and Montgomery County requirements deliberately discourage defendants from exercising their rights to defend themselves. Trials waste time and money, and are a subtle abuse of the power of the county and state. The attendance requirements are particularly burdensome financially and physically for seniors, the disabled and lower income workers. There is no acceptable argument which requires a low-income hourly paid worker or retiree to pay a fee and then spend hours in court

waiting to defend a ticket which he or she feels was unjustly issued. The “in person” trial requirement delays justice and imposes burdens which substantially diminish, degrade and undermine the opportunity of an accused to defend him or herself. In 2013 a bill sponsored by Delegate Susan McComas failed. It provided for administrative hearings by mail or Internet in defense of certain violations and is of particular interest and significance to the residents of Maryland. “Hearings by mail” resolve traffic violations quickly, efficiently, fairly and cheaply. They do not impair “justice.” A cost analysis (including income from fines) vs. productivity clearly shows savings of state and county funds and they do not place unfair, inequitable burdens on defendants.

Churchill is off to an impressive start this fall, but undefeated Paint Branch visits Potomac this weekend. Panthers made it to the state semifinals last year.

RM soars in earning first win in football Richard Montgomery dominates in 45-7 victory n

Soumah and it began a series of possessions that put the Patriots in an even bigger hole before the half. After failing to advance the ball on their next possession, Wootton had its punt attempt blocked. The ball bounced off the shoulder pads of a Wootton player and Soumah caught the bounce and proceeded to run it back for another 35-yard touchdown return. Once Churchill’s offense touched the ball again, quarterback Colin Smyth hit Marquette Lewis for a 35yard touchdown to give Churchill a 28-0 lead at the half.

Following a difficult two-win 2013 season, a competitive loss to open the 2014 campaign and a drubbing by defending Class 4A state champion Northwest last week, the Richard Montgomery High School football team had experienced enough losing. The Rockets unleashed over a year of frustration Friday on visiting Walter Johnson, as they dominated, 45-7, in Rockville. In the first seven minutes of the contest, Richard Montgomery (1-2) opened up a 21-0 lead, thanks to a 4-yard pass play from senior quarterback Renzo Farfan to Sebastian Vainqueur, a 30-yard interception return for a touchdown by junior linebacker Michael Silver and a fumble recovery for a score by junior defensive lineman Jon Ortega. Following a 23-yard field goal by Jakob Chumtong and Farfan’s second scoring pass to junior Daniel Alexander with 23.8 seconds left in the second quarter, Richard Montgomery had built an insurmountable 31-0 halftime advantage. “I told them that they had an intensity to them; a fire in their eyes that I haven’t seen in the first 12 games that I’ve been [coaching] here,” Rockets coach Josh Klotz said. “It was nice to see them have that intensity all day really, leading up to game time and then from the first play on.” The Rockets kept their intensity in the second half, as senior running back Alex Fehlinger (88 yards) ran 51 yards up the middle for a touchdown on the first play from scrimmage of the third quarter. The play started the running clock. “All the time [Fehlinger] put into the weight room in the offseason [has paid off] and he’s one of the fastest kids in the county with track,” Klotz said. “... We’ve really focused on the running backs hitting the holes and getting our timing down, and he did that [tonight].” Walter Johnson (0-3) stopped the running clock for short time, as thirdstring sophomore quarterback Peyton Ahnell capped a six-play drive with a 12-yard run. Richard Montgomery junior running back Leo Simon started the running clock back up with a 4-yard scoring run.

Churchill gets an offensive boost Field hockey: Defense also helps lead Bulldogs to 4-2 start n



Winston Churchill High School field hockey’s Carly Kabelac has been a steady defensive presence since joining the starting lineup in 2012. But with the Bulldogs searching for new scoring options this season, the 5-foot-7 senior has been tasked with

leading the offense too. Churchill’s co-captain has been up to the challenge. Playing “high sweep” — a defensive midfield position — Kabelac has tallied two goals and five assists for the Potomac school. “It’s her stepping up,” Churchill coach Catherine Miller said. “It’s her refining her skills and her taking more leadership on the field.” Kabelac’s seven points are teamhigh for the Bulldogs, who are 4-2 as of Monday. “She’s able to bring the ball up, and

get rid of it when she needs to,” goalkeeper Sophie Ascher said. “... She’s always been a really strong player and she just keeps getting better.” With Churchill (10-4 last year) graduating several top contributors, including All-Gazette second team midfield/forward Clare Nolan, the team has relied on players to take on new roles. Kabelac has continued to thrive as a two-way player and is on pace to surpass her 2013 scoring numbers (3 goals, 10 assists), but it hasn’t been a solo effort. Junior An-

nie Moshyedi and sophomore Jenny Langerman have also carried the offense with three goals apiece, while Ascher, a second-year starter, has 35 saves after recording 81 in 2013. “We’ve adjusted pretty quickly,” said Kabelac, who was named an allcounty defender by the Montgomery County Public School coaches last season. While Kabelac’s offense has given the Bulldogs a boost, her defense


Churchill extends its shutout streak against Wootton Strong second quarter allows seniors make up for last year’s loss to rival with 35-14 victory






Going into Friday night’s game against Thomas S. Wootton High School, the Winston Churchill football team had not allowed a single point this fall. The Bulldogs extended their shutout streak to 10 quarters on Friday in Rockville before allowing a touchdown in the third quarter. At that point, Churchill held a 28-7 lead and would

go on to win, 35-14. Churchill coach Joe Allen said the shutout streak was important, but the win meant more. “The goal of any defense is to get a shutout. So that’s no different for us.” Allen said. “We’ve been fortunate the last two weeks to get shutouts. We know we’re not going to get shutouts every game, but the defense still played very well today.” Offensively, running backs Blake Dove and Andrew Zuckerman set the tone for Churchill during a secondquarter drive in which the Bulldogs ran for 49 yards. Dove capped the drive with a 3-yard touchdown run. On the following possession, after

a Wootton fumble, Dove appeared to cross the goal line again, this time from a yard out, but the referees ruled that Dove fumbled the ball and Wootton recovered. Two plays later, defensive back Oumar Soumah intercepted Wootton quarterback Sam Ellis and returned it 35 yards to give the Bulldogs a 14-0 lead. Dove said he was robbed on the fumble. “I put my arm across. My body was in actually. But you have to let the refs get what they want sometimes,” Dove said. The ensuing interception return was just the beginning of a big day for

Sophomore sets up big season for Montgomery College Covenant Life grad switched from defensive specialist to setter this fall n



Over the summer, Montgomery College women’s volleyball coach Amir Mafinejad considered asking sophomore Nicole Couturier about making a significant position


change. And after looking over the roster, Mafinejad approached and asked the 2013 Covenant Life School graduate to move from defensive specialist to setter. “I hadn’t played setter in a few years,” Couturier said. “So it was tough getting back in the flow of running the offense. There’s been a lot of hard work and practice.” By all accounts, Couturier has embraced and performed well in her new position this fall. After

moving from Colorado prior to her high school junior year, Couturier set, on occasion, at the Gaithersburg private school, but primarily played in the back row. “She’s done great for us and I’m really proud of her for helping out the team,” Mafinejad said. “We told her she may be our starting setter and she’s ran with it. She’s improved her serving and defense and has done a great job setting the ball. Nicole’s improving constantly and has great hands, but most impor-

tantly, she’s watching where people are and running the offense, directing people for plays.” Couturier, who has 269 of the Raptors’ 274 assists this season and is a member of the Montgomery College Scholars program studying biochemistry, has had to work with a raw and short group of hitters. Sophomore middle hitter Kapria Redparth (Takoma Academy) is the tallest listed player on

that they chose for their annual Think Pink match, which raises money for breast cancer research. “It’s a big community event,” Kart said. “We usually get about 300 people, which for a volleyball match is pretty big.” The two teams sit atop the conference after Good Counsel recently defeated Paul VI in four games.


Freshman libero sparks Gaithersburg defense

During Gaithersburg High School’s 3-0 victory against previously unbeaten Northwest on Thursday, freshman Skyler Thiessen became quite familiar with the gym floor. The 5-foot-5 libero was everywhere for the Trojans, spearheading an impressive defensive effort with a number of diving digs. “For her to play at the level she’s playing at right now is just unreal,” coach Michele Staymates said of the only freshman on her roster. “She’s all over the floor. She made some diving passes and some digs and [got to] some balls she should’ve never gotten her hands on. She’s brilliant.”

Good Counsel defeats Holy Cross in field hockey Our Lady of Good Counsel High School field hockey’s Mackenzie Masters had been under the weather, battling bronchitis, and after missing the previous game, coach Theda Bagdon was on the fence about putting her back on the field. “I asked her, ‘Are you back?’” Bagdon said. “She’s like, ‘I’m back.’ And I’m like, ‘Prove it.’” Masters did exactly that on Monday against the Academy of the Holy Cross. In the second half, the senior scored what proved to be the game-winning goal in a 2-1 road victory against the rival Kensington school. The Falcons (7-1) have leaned on their conditioning this season as they look to repeat as champions of the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference. The win moves the Falcons to 4-0 in WCAC play.



Coaching change keys B-CC’s early success Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School senior Alexis Salcedo is in her fourth year of varsity tennis, and is on her fourth coach. And while the first three may not have been the right fit for the Barons, current coach Chris Hoey seems to have his No. 2 singles player believing that the fourth time can be a charm. “Our practices aren’t some place where we just hit to hit. Now, we actually have lessons that he teaches us each day to improve our [games],” Salcedo said. “He knows how to speak to us and teach us things quick and to the point.”

We try to set her as much as we can when she’s up in the front row.” Freshman opposite hitter Natalie Speth (Seneca Valley), who was expected to play libero before the season began, has also made key contributions offensively at opposite hitter (43 kills). Classmate outside hitter Katherine Liu (42, Winston Churchill) and sophomore outside hitter Hiromi Konishi (33, Northwest), who is playing through a knee injury, have also chipped in. All three are listed 5-6 or shorter. “We are short, but we are

definitely getting better as we get a feel for each other,” Couturier said. “... We’re playing as hard and as best as we can.” Montgomery College (6-7 overall, 6-3 regular-season matches), which was missing three starters due to injury or prior commitments, lost all four of their round-robin style matches in Saturday’s inaugural Raptors Volleyball Invitational. But Mafinejad remains optimistic. The Raptors went just 17-16 last season, but, as the No. 4 and lowest seed, peaked at the right time to win the Region XX/District G title and advance to their second NJCAA Division III national tournament. “We’re keeping our fingers crossed everyone stays healthy,” the seventh-year coach said. “We’ve told our players that it isn’t how you start, it is how you finish the season playing your best.” kzakour@gazette.net

Wootton coach Eddie Tolliver said that the end of the half put his team in a tough spot and said his defense was forced to stay on the field for too long. “Our timing was off,” Tolliver said. “We left a lot on the field, and I think if we would’ve just got into a rhythm earlier, it would’ve been a lot easier to move the ball. We moved the ball down the field, but then we would shoot ourselves in the foot.” Soumah said he never had a game like the one he had Friday. “Last week [a 41-0 win over Walter Johnson} was pretty good. But this week was a lot better,” the senior said. “Even if I didn’t have any of the plays,


Continued from Page B-1 “We had great practices all week, the coaches prepared us, and I felt that just carried us day by day,” said Silver, who intercepted three passes and recovered a fumble. “Defensively, our line played well, they put a lot of pressure on them.

Wootton won on Churchill’s home-field and the Bulldogs considered themselves returning the favor on Friday. Dove, who also plays linebacker, said the defense wanted to extend the shutout streak for another game. While that didn’t happen, he said the win felt good. “We told ourselves this whole week we [were] going to come out strong, and we [were} going to dominate,” Dove said. “We did it.

If we execute the run well ... it can help our passing game. The second half, the guys came out and gave our best. We’re getting there.” Walter Johnson is also hoping to get one of its junior quarterbacks, Ben Lake or Kedar Rollins, ready for next week. Both are questionable, according to Kellner.

Coach Hao-Lin Chai knew his team was better than its 1-2 record suggested, so when Walt Whitman took a thrilling first game from perennial power Sherwood on Sept. 16, he wasn’t all that surprised.

and that of her teammates — has been just as vital to the team’s early-season success. Kabelac and senior Emily Raab have anchored a defense that has recorded three shutouts while allowing only five goals through six games. Moshyedi said that communication has been key to the defense’s success, and that Kabelac has been at the center of that. “She kind of guides our defense and offense,” Moshyedi said. “Always talking to us on the field, telling us what we

need to be doing, where we need to be. We’re always constantly learning from her.” The Bulldogs’ two losses — both by a 2-0 score — came against Poolesville and Thomas S. Wootton (Rockville), the 4A state runner-ups. Kabelac said she is hoping the team can improve on its 2013 season, which ended with a 5-1 loss to the Patriots in the second round of the playoffs. “I think we have a lot of good players [and depth],” Kabelac said. “If we work hard enough, it’ll work out.”

On Friday, Our Lady of FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK Good Counsel lost its first game B Y P R I N C E J . G R I M E S of the season. They ran into a defense even more formidable than their own, in Gilman, and failed to score a point in a 20-0 defeat.

Rash at Springbrook delays game Friday night’s game between Sherwood High School and host Springbrook was postponed until Monday due to a skin irritation scare for the players at the Silver Spring school. According to Springbrook’s coach Adam Bahr, staff members at Springbrook cleaned the locker room with an “appropriate disinfectant, inappropriately used.” It resulted in rashes and burns on a number of players’ necks and shoulders where the shoulder pads sit, forcing them to seek medical attention, Bahr said. The team had to get new gear as a result and reschedule the game. A lot of players still weren’t able to suit-up for Monday’s game, forcing Springbrook to call five junior varsity players up for depth. “Its been a bizarre week. My thoughts and prayers are with the kids who are still affected by the incident. Its been tough to focus on football as clearly, that’s become secondary,” Bahr said. “We are also grateful to the staff at Sherwood who [were] so accommodating in our desire to switch the game to Monday.” Bahr said he was also grateful to the soccer team for re-arranging their schedule to accommodate the change in the football schedule.

No game for Kennedy While Springbrook got an opportunity to make up last Friday’s game, John F. Kennedy High School will have to completely cancel their game this Friday against National Christian Academy. Kennedy athletic director Ken Cudd cited a lack of communication from NCA as the reason why. After initially reaching out to Kennedy to schedule the September 26 game, NCA’s coach couldn’t be contacted, Cudd said. He said he sent the contract for the game to NCA in July and never heard back from the coach again, nor did he receive the contract. “Based on the lack of any communication, we decided not to count on them to show up and pulled the plug on the game now,” Cudd said. Kennedy players may benefit from a week off as it provides an unprecedented amount of time to rest and

work on some things in between games. But Cudd agreed, net revenue for the athletic department will be affected by the cancellation because the game was supposed to be one of five home-games for the Cavaliers.

Military appreciation at Seneca Valley Two story-lines played out at the Seneca Valley and Northwest game on Friday. The first and most obvious was the game, which is annually played for the King’s trophy, and was won by Northwest for a second consecutive season. The second was Seneca Valley’s Military Appreciation Night, which began a couple of hours before the game and continued throughout with U.S. Army and Seneca Valley Booster Club sponsored events. This included a rock wall, football toss, veteran recognition during the game, and U.S. Army material giveaways among many other things. Prior to the game, senior Ronnie Ramirez Garcia was awarded a plaque for best representing the seven core values of the U.S. Army. “It went great,” Seneca Valley’s athletic director Jesse Irvin said. “The student body embraced it and it was the most spirited I have seen our student section.”

Cutting it close Georgetown Prep dropped to 1-3 on the season following a 34-30 loss to St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes on Saturday. The game was Prep’s first Interscholastic Athletic Conference football game since rejoining the IAC this season after a 10-year absence from the conference. The four-point loss was Prep’s second one-score loss of the season after losing to Bishop McNamara 2721 on September 6. Their lone win thus far was a 27-26 game over Fork Union Military Academy.

Sandy Spring Friends find balance

KEEPING IT BRIEF MC men’s soccer coach takes Gallaudet job Montgomery College men’s soccer coach Pedro Braz was recently named to the same position at Gallaudet University. Braz, who is expected to finish out the 2014 season with the Raptors, will be restarting a program in 2015 that has not fielded a varsity team since the 2012 season. “It will be a challenge starting a brand new program, going to be a lot of work and a different environment,” said Braz, who added he will have to learn American Sign Language. Braz guided the Raptors to a 22-2 record last fall and a No. 2 ranking.


Sherwood volleyball reigns at Magruder Invitational The Sherwood High School volleyball team took home the first place trophy at Saturday’s 17th annual Col. Zadok Magruder Invitational tournament, defeating Frederick County’s Urbana, 25-23, 25-16 in the title match. “[The girls] are learning on a very, very quick scale,” first-year coach Ben Sanger said. “Everything we’re seeing in practice is translating over to the court and it just makes me proud because it’s showing that we’re being effective. That shows on the scoreboard.” Montgomery Blair’s Jade Liu and Magruder’s Becky Smith joined Sherwood’s Megan Wilson and Kerra Tirado on the all-tournament team. Kaiya Heylinger-Powell, a 6-foot-2 sophomore middle hitter for the Warriors, took home the tournament’s Most Valuable Player award. “Kaiya is probably one of the strongest players in the county,” Sanger said. “If she can get her body weight behind the ball and swing, there’s very few people who will be able to dig that ball up.”


Clarksburg field hockey gets a lesson On Saturday, the Clarksburg High School field hockey team went to Leonardtown and predictably suffered a 4-0 defeat against the competitive out-of-county squad. But in that blowout loss was a learning experience; it forced the team to “play honest defense” and avoid ball watching, coach Sissy Natoli said. It didn’t take long for the Coyotes to respond. Later that afternoon, they defeated Col. Zadok Magruder of Derwood, 4-0, improving their record to 4-2 as of Monday.


Springbrook grad selected to Washington Spirit After two National Women’s Soccer League seasons with the Boston Breakers, 2000 Springbrook High School graduate Joanna Lohman will call the Maryland SoccerPlex in Boyds home once again. It was announced by the league last week that Lohman, a midfielder, was selected by the Germantown-based Washington Spirit off waivers. Lohman, who spent time with the Washington Freedom and D.C. United Women, made 14 starts for Boston in 2014 and scored a goal. She was a member of the U-21 U.S. Women’s National Team from 2000-05 and has seven caps for the USWNT.


HOW THEY RANK Boys soccer 1. Georgetown Prep 2. Whitman 3. Magruder 4. Walter Johnson 5. Blair

The Sandy Spring Friends School (SSFS) boys soccer team has a new look after reaching the Potomac Valley Athletic Conference tournament championship game in 2013. And it might be a better one. Without last season’s leading scorer Keenan Smith (Class of 2014), the Wildebeests have turned to a more balanced attack, with

n Best bet: Whitman at Einstein, noon Saturday. High-scoring Titans host red-hot Vikings in matchup featuring two of county’s top teams.

BOYS SOCCER NOTEBOOK BY ERIC GOLDWEIN several different scoring options. The result: a 4-1 start (as of Monday) that includes a victory over Our Lady of Good Counsel. Among SSSF’s key contribtuors are junior midfielder/forward Jake Crim and senior midfielder Jacob Petrucci; coach Jeff Rohrman said he expects Crim, 6-foot-2, to shoulder much of the burden this season. Rohrman said SSFS’s depth on offense has been key to the quick start. “I’ve got three or four guys that can score for us so we’re not as reliant on one player … in some ways, we’re a better team,” Rohrman said. “... It’s a real different dynamic.”

Gaithersburg keeps winning despite injuries The Gaithersburg High School boys soccer team has been decimated by injuries, losing half of its starting lineup. Nothing catastrophic; three sprained ankles and a hamstring, coach Matt Bowling said. But the shorthanded Trojans have been without some of their top contributors, including goalkeeper Christian Reyes (ankle) and striker Gustavo Garcia (hamstring). But that’d be hard to tell based off the early-season results, as the Trojans — leaning on seniors Max Boimov and Neal Iannone — are off to a 4-2 start as of Monday. “I think it’s remarkable considering the adversity the team has had to deal with,” Bowling said. “... It’s been a total team approach to try and solve the problem.”

Wheaton turns it around The Wheaton High School boys soccer team went into the year with a new set of starters after graduating 10 seniors, and that inexperience was exposed during their preseason scrimmages, which included a 7-1 loss to Richard Montgomery and a blowout loss against Gaithersburg.

Walter Johnson High School’s Xavier Warmerdam (right) and High Point’s Angelo Ridore chase the ball during the Sept. 5 boys soccer match in Beltsville. “We were really bombed by a couple teams,” coach Oscar Amaguana said. “Let me tell you, it was ugly.” But that slow start, it turned out, was exactly what the Silver Spring school needed. Following the Trojans loss, the Knights made some changes, moving two of its midfielders — Naol MeKonnen, Carlos Flamenco — to defense and putting its sophomore, Arthur Nganou, at center back. The result has been a 4-1 start (as of Monday), with two shutouts and just six goals allowed. “It’s working. The kids are following directions, playing together keeping their shape … we’re heading in the right direction,” Amaguana said.

Northwest puts it together Nothing like a nail-biting victory over an elite Montgomery County opponent to lift the spirits of a struggling Northwest High School boys soccer team. Playing Sherwood on Friday, the Jaguars escaped with a 2-1 victory — the first of the season for the Germantown school. Emil Owusu and Henry Gomez both had goals in the victory over the Olney school; Gomez’s came on a penalty kick. “We played pretty well,” North-

west coach Kert Mease said. “I think that things are starting to come together a little bit.”

Walter Johnson bounces back in a big way The Walter Johnson High School boys soccer team needed every second of its Saturday match against Gonzaga. As time expired in the second half, Giles Beven served a ball to Malcolm Djiki, who scored his first varsity goal to send the game into overtime. The Wildcats would get another timely goal in the 96th minute; this one — another first — came from junior forward Daniel Hart, and it gave the Betesda school its fifth straight victory after getting blown out in its season-opener — a 5-0 loss to High Point in Beltsville. “They’re starting to see where the pay off is of working hard. I keep telling them, ‘high school ball, it’s very different from a club atmosphere. Sometimes it does come down to work rate, intensity and just that sense of urgency,’ coach Hector Morales said. “When they do that, when they play in that style and manner, they’ve really been able to put together those good halves of play.”


n Best bet: Bishop McNamara at Academy of the Holy Cross, 4 p.m., Tuesday. Two WCAC foes are looking to move up in the conference.

n Best bet: Gaithersburg at Wootton, 6:30 p.m. Friday. After putting away Northwest in straight games last week, the Trojans face another tough road test early in the season against the unbeaten Patriots.

R. Montgomery gets technical on the pitch The Richard Montgomery High School girls soccer team has never been short on athleticism, coach Monica Tarzy said, but past teams have been comprised mostly of athletes turned soccer players for the fall. This year’s squad, however, boasts much more technical skill throughout the field than in recent history. The higher percentage of yearround players, many of whom are members of higher level club teams, has enabled Richard Montgomery to employ a more possession style offense predicated on working the ball around the field. And it’s opened up more scoring chances, Tarzy said. The Rockets (3-1 as of Sunday) have outscored their first four opponents, 10-5. Senior Rowan Glass has led the way with six goals. Junior Vanessa Martinez has surfaced as a reliable playmaker in the central midfield. Brittany Fletcher’s speed in the final third is also something Richard Montgomery has been play-

Gaithersburg adjusts to new goalkeeper Freshman Elise Couturier has big shoes to fill as Gaithersburg’s new goalie. There are five four-year varsity members used to playing in front of the same, experienced keeper. But 2014 graduate Michaela Colon gave Couturier her stamp of approval during tryouts and coach Greg Kenel said the youngster is taking large strides every day. After consecutive lopsided wins, Gaithersburg has lost two straight to Poolesville (2-0) and Bethesda-Chevy Chase (1-0), but those are two quality teams that have outscored their opponents a combined 33-4 and Kenel said Couturier, who is a quick learner, held up well. .

It’s a numbers game for Springbrook It would’ve been difficult for the Springbrook High School girls soccer team to take a step back from a winless 2013 but the Blue Devils have taken more than one step forward early this fall. And it started with increased numbers at tryouts — the roster has jumped from 12 to 23 players. Springbrook (3-2 as of Sunday) has already won three more games than it did its entire season a year ago. In the Blue Devils’ first five contests, they have scored 10 goals, more than double last year’s total of four goals. Springbrook has given up an average of three goals in its first five contests, nearly three less than last year’s average. Sophomore goalie Mercy Akede has played a major part in that, coach Lauren-Ashley Minor said.

E.B. White’s classic story is told through musical BY

STUART LITTLE n When: Now through Oct. 26; check Web site for times


Join a “Little” mouse on a big journey when Adventure Theatre MTC launches its 2014-2015 season with its production of “Stuart Little.” Based on the 1945 E.B. White novel of the same name, the musical focuses on The Little family of New York City, consisting of Mr. and Mrs. Little, their son George Little and their adopted son, the mouse named Stuart. After his feathered friend Margalo disappears, he embarks on an adventure outside of his home to find her. While his small size is an obstacle, it can’t get in the way of his determination. “It’s a fun story, fast-paced and very much in the spirit of what I gravitate toward,” said director Chris Hovde, “which is letting the audience bring their imagination to the story rather than doing everything for them.”

n Where: Adventure Theatre MTC, 7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo n Tickets: $19 n More information: adventuretheatre-mtc.org; 301-634-2270

The cast consists of five different actors playing multiple parts – all except for Stuart Little, who is played by Chris Dinolfo. According to Hovde, Dinolfo’s craftsmanship and presence made him a perfect match for the role of the adventurous rodent. From there, the rest of the cast fell into place. “The four ensemble characters, we cast around our lead Stuart,” said Hovde. “They’re funny, adventurous, and they have wild imaginations themselves — they cast themselves, essentially.”

The Little family — made up of Mr. and Mrs. Little, played by Andrew Ferlo and Tracey Farrar; George, played by Philip Reid; and adopted second child-mouse Stuart Little, played by Chris Dinolfo — gathers in their New York apartment in the Adventure Theatre Musical Theater Company production of “Stuart Little.”

Sly Fox Brewery brings award-winning flavor to Mid-Atlantic n

Company one of the first to can instead of bottle

Sly Fox Brewery in Pottstown, Pa., is a rapidly growing brewery now selling in five states in the Mid-Atlantic region as well as New York and Washington, D.C. Starting as a Phoenixville, Pa., brewpub in 1996, the production brewing facility was added in 2004 and relo-

BREWS BROTHERS STEVEN FRANK AND ARNOLD MELTZER cated and expanded in 2012. Brewing in 2014 is expected to be 21,000 barrels, about a 40 percent growth over 2013. Sly Fox produces five yearround beers: Phoenix Pale Ale, Helles Golden Lager, Route 113 IPA, 360 IPA, and their best

selling Pikeland Pils, a Great American Beer Festival gold medal winner. The brewery also makes five seasonal beers: Oktoberfest Lager, Odyssey Imperial IPA, Christmas Ale, Royal Weisse, and Grisette, a relative of the Belgian Saison style. Brewmaster Brian O’Reilly has been with Sly Fox since 2002 and is noted for his interpretations of classic Belgian and German styles. The brewery

bottles a number of specialty beers during the year totaling 40-50 styles in 2013, about half of which are available commercially in cans or 22-ounce bottles, with the remainder only sold on draft. Sly Fox was the first brewery in the Mid-Atlantic region to install a canning line and many of its beers are available only in cans. Grisette Working Class Ale

(5.6 percent alcohol by volume, ABV) is an unusual style originally brewed for consumption by Belgian miners rather than the related Saison style which was designed for farm workers. Grisette has a sweet malt and light lemon nose. Very smooth throughout, it has an understated sweet malt front with a tempered melange of citrus fruits including orange, grapefruit and lemon.

Continued from Page B-5 Each of the ensemble members play multiple roles, using costumes — and a bit of imagination — to transform from one character to another. Everyone comes together in support of Stuart, who encounters a new set of hurdles to overcome once he steps outside of his house. “I think every play out there helps us have a window into how someone else feels being human and the challenges that come with that,” he said. “We get to experience Stuart experiencing a lot of different things for the first time and see how he deals with adversity, and the chance to see his discoveries is beautiful.” As the original book was written in the mid40s, the musical retains a sense of a bygone era, a more carefree time where make-believe was more common than staying at home watching television. “It has a nostalgia for a time where there weren’t cell phones or video games,” said Hovde, “and when kids had a free day they would use their imaginations. Kids could really invest in play time, and I think that’s something amazing about the piece, the imagination and the playfulness of letting kids be kids.” Hopefully the adults in the audience will be flooded with memories of a childhood without worries, while children viewing the musical will become invested in Stuart’s adventure and use their imaginations right alongside him as the viewers cheer him on during his journey through adversity. “One of the lines says it’s the fantastical story of a most remarkable mouse,” he said,” and it really is. I think we can see ourselves in Stuart in

bitter hops in the middle. The bitter hops grow a pinch in the finish and continue to increase to medium in the aftertaste which has a lingering dryness. Ratings: 8.5/8.5. Route 113 IPA (7 percent ABV). The citrus, malt and bitter hop nose leads to a front with notes of sweet malt and bitter hops that are about equal and balance one another. The malt increases a bit in the middle, followed by the hops elevating in the finish, bringing this IPA almost into balance with an edge to the hops. The

malt tapers in the aftertaste with the bitter hops coming to the forefront. Ratings: 8.5/8.5 Incubus (10.3 percent ABV) is a Belgian tripel that begins with an enticing aromatic mix of gentle orange and lemon citrus and a suggestion of malt. These are reflected in the subdued orange, lemon and honey front which lasts into the middle and modest crisp finish. Affable bitter hops enter in the aftertaste which shows no evidence of the dangerously high alcohol level of this well crafted tripel. Ratings: 8/8.5.

‘Colossal’ extends the drive PHOTO BY BIZMONT ENTERTAINMENT

Popular musician Biz Markie will be the host of the 80s vs. 90s Dance Party at the Fillmore Silver Spring on Saturday.

Oh, baby!

There are one-hit wonders and then there’s Biz Markie. And that’s not a bad thing. Back in the late 1980s, Biz Markie became a household name with the release of his song “Just a Friend.” You’ve heard the song. Trust me. If not, look it up on YouTube. In the video, Markie is playing a piano wearing a Beethoven wig. Yep, again, it was the 1980s. Things were wild and crazy back then, kids. Markie is set to guest DJ the Fillmore Flashback: 80s vs. 90s Dance Party at the Fillmore Silver Spring on Saturday. Markie will be there along with The New Romance and Here’s To the Night. Since “Just a Friend,” topped out at No. 9 on the Billboard charts, Markie has kept busy, releasing new music and, most recently, working and performing with DJ Lance and all of the Yo Gabba Gabba’s on Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. Considering Markie’s goofy look and silly demeanor, working on a children’s show is probably his greatest idea. Tickets for the show are $22 and it’s general admission, so standing room only at the Fillmore. For more information, visit fillmoresilverspring.com or call 301-960-9999.


More times than not, the shows performed at the Olney Theatre Center are so good, the theater has no choice but to extend the run of the performance just so everyone has a chance to see it. “Colossal” is no exception, as its run has been extended through Sunday, Oct. 5. The show, which is having its rolling premiere in Olney, tackles a lot of tough situations – sexuality, masculinity, disability and family life – for a football player who was paralyzed during a game protecting one of his teammates. “Colossal” is different in that there are actual football players … well, actors portraying football players … on stage during the show. They’re dressed in pads and are ready to be inserted into any game day lineup. While chances are always


Marcus (Jon Hudson Odom) and the Players await the next play in Olney Theatre Center’s production of Colossal. good Olney will extended the run a second time, it’s best not to take the risk. Now is a great time to head over there to see the show for yourself.

Tickets for the show vary in price from $42 to $65. For more information, visit olneytheatre.org or call 301-924-3400.

Sometimes the goals in your life come with consequences. Doesn’t mean you don’t try everything in your power to achieve your dream, it just means you might have some obstacles and trials along the way. Such is the story Valencia, a Honduran immigrant who dreams of coming to the United States to start a new life in “La Bestia: Sweet Mother, An Immigrant’s Tale,” a musical and dance performance set to take place at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday at The Theater at the Takoma Park Community Center. The piece, which debuted in New York’s East Village earlier this year, has played at Theater for the New City and 14th Street Y Theater, both in New York. Desiree Miller (cello), Becca Weiss (singer) and Tom Block (libretto) are behind the music while Liz Higgins will perform her own original choreography, which she created for this
