Fears of fair fleeing unfounded Executive director: ‘The fairground is not for sale’



Imagine retail stores where the carousel spins, cafés instead of piglet races and a 12-story apartment building where Old MacDonald’s Barn now stands. It could happen, thanks to last spring’s rezoning of the Montgomery County Agricultural Fairgrounds. But the executive director of the fair, Martin Svrcek, says there are no plans to scrap the fair in favor of a

neighborhood with more than 1 million square feet of commercial and office space and 1,350 homes, as outlined in the rezoning documents. “The only new plans are the construction of the new Old MacDonald’s Barn,” Svrcek said. The Montgomery County Agricultural Center owns the 63 acres. “The fairground is not for sale.” Last June, Gaithersburg leaders approved an application from the Montgomery County Agricultural Center to rezone the fairground. The zoning had been

In all, 11,772 gooey, toasted sandwiches were sold this year. For Consumano, 25, the $3.50 sandwich lived up to its hype. “Grilled cheese is just the all-American food. I wouldn’t say I am a connoisseur but when I ate it I thought it was good,” she said, adding that this

Seven months ago, a veteran Montgomery County Public Schools music teacher was arrested in Baltimore and charged with possessing child pornography. Administrators said at the time they had no reason to believe that Montgomery County students were in any of the photos. But as details from court records have emerged, the accusations against Lawrence Wesley Joynes have evolved into a decades-long tale of sex abuse. Joynes, who has been in custody in Baltimore since his arrest earlier this year, faces 14 counts of sex abuse of a minor — each count represents a victim — for incidents that took place at New Hampshire Estates Elementary School in Silver Spring. He also faces a sex offense charge and a count of second-degree rape connected with a 15th victim at Eastern Middle School in Silver Spring. If sentenced to the maximum penalty for the charges, Joynes would serve 445 years in prison. James Dills, a public defender representing Joynes in Baltimore on the child pornography charges, declined to comment on the charges against his client. He did not know when Joynes would be brought to Montgomery County or who would be defending him against the charges he faces here. Since the investigation into Joynes began in October 2012, police have uncovered more than 4,000 photos of young girls, many in sexually suggestive positions, including photos of Montgomery County Public School students, according to Joynes’ charging documents. Police documents state that Joynes inculcated a group of special students, his “lunch bunch,” to engage in sexually suggestive behavior while he photographed and videotaped them. The children were in kindergarten through second grade. In one case, Joynes maintained a lengthy sexually abusive relationship with a seventh grader — who had confided to him that she

The entrance of the new Gaithersburg High School on Tuesday as teachers and students prepare for the start of the school year next week. BY


While Gaithersburg High School students are making their final preparations as the academic year draws closer, their school continued its own steps this week to get ready for them. The high school’s new building showed signs of a long-term project undergoing its final stage: “Wet Paint” signs cautioned passers-by Monday, minor construction work produced whirs and beeps, and tables and other furniture stood ready for arrangement. As she walked through the 422,000-square-


foot building on Monday, Dr. Christine Handy-Collins, the high school’s principal, said everything will be ready before school starts on Aug. 26. “We’ll be ready to rock ’n’ roll,” she said.

Quads, tris, lats and traps take center stage at museum Red paint spread across the weightlifter’s shoulder Saturday at the National Museum of Health and Medicine in Silver Spring. Lines of intersecting white paint flowed down his shoulder blade and onto his back, as his muscles were drawn on his skin.


Alex Modaressi was one of the local athletes who had their bodies painted depicting their musculature to help show how muscles move during sports and how to avoid sports injuries. The museum’s second Anatomy of Sports event was held to educate people about how their bodies work when they participate in sports such as swimming, volleyball or horseback riding. About 200 people attended the free two-hour event, according to Andrea Schierkolk, the museum’s public programs manager. Medical illustrators, including Marie Dauenheimer of Reston, Va., began painting athletes’ and horses’ bodies at 10:30 a.m. Modaressi, of Gaithersburg, had his shoulder, back and torso painted to highlight specific muscles he uses when lifting, as a sort of inside-out diagram. There were weightlifters, cyclists, lacrosse players, volleyball players, swimmers and equestrians at the museum, including Chris Draft, a former NFL linebacker. A brown horse had its bones traced with white paint to demonstrate how the equine skeleton compares with humans’. Aurea Sellneyer, 10, of Silver Spring, her sister Elsa Sellneyer, 13, and Megan Sollon of Odenton pointed out the horse’s painted bones to attendees. — MARLENA CHERTOCK

Church: College deal ‘pulled apart’ by Montgomery officials Ervin said she asked questions at request of Leggett’s office




For more than a year, representatives of the National Labor College have been trying to sell the 47-acre campus near the Capital Beltway along New Hampshire Avenue. The college hopes to move to a smaller space in downtown Silver Spring. With more students taking online courses, it has lessened the need for physical classrooms. In June, leaders of Reid Temple African Methodist Episcopal Church thought they had a fairly solid deal to buy the campus in partnership with the Housing Opportunities Commission of Montgomery County, an affordable housing group. Reid Temple planned a new church building as well as affordable housing. “We were really close,” said the Rev. Loxley O’Connor, director of business and financial affairs for the church. Reid

Temple is one of the largest churches in the nation with more than 13,000 members in Silver Spring and Glenn Dale. “We were down to a short list of items that needed to be resolved.” The college, which was founded by the AFL-CIO about four decades ago, had signed a letter of intent, which anticipated a formal contract to sell the campus to Reid Temple and the HOC would be completed in June. But “just as the negotiations over the terms of the contract were nearing completion,” commission officials decided to withdraw from the deal, said Lara L. Manzione, vice president for marketing and communications of the college. The executive committee of college’s board of trustees “reviewed the matter and opted to return the property to market,” Manzione said. “We were disappointed,” O’Connor said. “We heard from several sources that the deal was pulled apart by a few Montgomery County Council members who opposed having a church take ownership.” He said those sources came from both the commission and college, as well as other places, but he did not

know of a specific council member who expressed opposition. Manzione said she was not in contact with any Montgomery council members and had “no idea what they think about the sale of the property.” Montgomery County Council member Valerie Ervin (D-Dist. 5) of Silver Spring, a former dean of the labor college, said Tuesday that County Executive Isiah Leggett’s office asked her to meet with representatives of the labor college and housing agency earlier this year. She did so and said she raised questions over whether the Reid Temple sale was the best use of the property and if the land was owned by a church, it would be exempt from property taxes. “All I did was raise questions,” Ervin said. “The HOC board voted to shut it down. … I don’t have the power or authority to shut down anything.” Patrick Lacefield, a spokesman for the county, said he did not have any information on the situation.

Still interested in campus Reid Temple is still interested in the campus but wanted to get the matter of

any political opposition in the open to clear it up, O’Connor said. “We still want to complete the transaction without the interference of those who have their own political agenda,” he said. The church is also evaluating whether to rebid on the property or pursue similar properties, O’Connor said. “We have seen a great expansion of our ministry and need a larger location,” he said. The Labor College is aware that Reid Temple has expressed a continued interest in purchasing the property, Manzione said. During a recent meeting, the Montgomery County Planning Board reviewed some proposed master plan guidelines for that area of Silver Spring. Reid Temple’s proposal would fit those guidelines well and provide an excellent economic redevelopment plan, O’Connor said. The college land, which includes dorms, classrooms, offices and a conference center, was valued by the state Department of Assessments and Taxation in 2013 at about $45 million. Once owned by a Roman Catholic religious

order, the Xaverian Brothers, the AFLCIO purchased the property in 1971 and formally dedicated the George Meany Center for Labor Studies and began offering degree programs for union members in affiliation with Antioch College in 1974, according to its website. The college later became an independent degree-granting institution and its name was changed to the George Meany Center for Labor Studies — the National Labor College. It has been accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education since 2004. Enrollment at the college in fall 2012 was 618 students, with 76 graduates that year. It offers bachelor’s degrees in business administration, labor studies and union leadership, among others, and has been offering more online courses in recent years. Since relisting the campus, some 34 entities have signed non-disclosure agreements allowing them to review property documents and the college has led tours of the campus for many prospective buyers, Manzione said.

Man charged with stabbing Ride On bus driver n

Passenger was threatening to kill people, police say



A 30-year-old Silver Spring man is in jail after police say he stabbed a Ride On bus driver who refused to pull over and let him off the bus. Andre William Smith faces six charges of assault, disorderly conduct, and related counts, online court records show. The assault took place shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday in the 7600 block of New Hampshire Avenue, according to Takoma


Park police. Smith, who was riding on the bus, had become “irate” and threatened to kill people from different ethnic groups, before demanding that the driver let him off the bus. According to the police release, when the driver didn’t stop the bus, Smith walked to the front of the bus, then ordered the driver stop the bus. After the driver asked Smith to stay behind the yellow line, Smith started attacking him and grabbing the bus’s steering wheel, forcing the driver to stop the bus and defend himself, police said. At that point, Smith took a pocket knife out of his pants and began waving it at the driver, before stabbing him in the

leg, the release said. The driver got off the bus and Smith fled, but Prince George’s County police who were already on the scene arrested him. Rescue personnel took the driver to a local hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. No passengers were injured, according to the release. Smith is being held on $200,000 bail, court records show. He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Sept. 6. A lawyer for Smith could not be contacted.

With less than two months until enrollment opens under sweeping federal health insurance changes, Montgomery County is preparing its education, outreach, eligibility and enrollment services for nearly 222,000 uninsured residents of Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. Montgomery was one of two public health departments among a total of six partners selected by the state to serve as a “connector entity” in implementing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare.” Each connector entity will provide enrollment assistance to the uninsured and to small employers in its region. Six regions were identified across the state. Maryland’s regional approach ensures that the state’s uninsured and underserved communities are provided with in-person assistance as the new health insurance coverage options become available in October, according to a news release from the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange. Maryland will offer insurance through the Maryland Health Connection, the statebased health insurance marketplace, and Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services will provide enrollment services and assistance to residents, county spokeswoman Mary Anderson said. “We will be working here in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties to identify and then to enroll all the eligible people in our region into these health plans,” Anderson said. Anderson said the county will be hiring about 40 full- and parttime employees to serve as “navigators” and assistants who will aid

and enroll residents in a plan. Residents will have options for enrolling in a health plan, including online, over the phone and in person through the services provided by the county, she said. To provide the navigators and education, the county was granted $7.8 million from the state and federal government for a one-year period, Anderson said. To reach residents in all corners of its region, Montgomery has subcontracted with community-based organization partners including the Prince George’s County Health Department, the Prince George’s County Department of Social Services, Benefits Data Trust, Casa of Maryland, Community Clinic, Family Services, Interfaith Works, the Korean Community Services Center of Greater Washington, Mary’s Center for Maternal and Child Care, and the Primary Care Coalition of Montgomery County. To help answer questions, Anderson said the county’s new exchange website will launch this week and that the county will host a series of forums on the Affordable Care Act. The forums will provide residents the opportunity to learn about the insurance coverage and potential assistance available through Maryland Health Connection, according to a county news release. The forums will be held as follows: • Wednesday from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the East County Regional Center at 3300 Briggs Chaney Road, Silver Spring. • Thursday from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Upcounty Regional Center at 12900 Middlebrook Road, Germantown. • Sept. 3 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Mid-County Regional Center at 2424 Reedie Drive, Wheaton. • Sept. 5 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Center at 4805 Edgemoor Lane, Bethesda.

Pedestrian collisions in parking lots on the rise in Montgomery County County numbers could echo national trend BY


The number of collisions in which pedestrians are struck by vehicles in parking lots is on the rise in Montgomery County, so much so that the county is spending $50,000 on a parking lot safety program this year. According to an analysis released Aug. 5 by AAA Mid-Atlantic, almost 30 percent of pedestrian accidentsinthecountyin2012occurred in parking lots. That number is “a jump” from 16 percent in 2010, county spokeswoman Esther Bowring said. The 121 pedestrian collisions that took place in parking lots or garages in the county in 2012, out of a total of more than 400 collisions involving pedestrians, have worried county officials. Bowring said a county task force is working to find out why

An internal group with representatives from county departments and agencies is sharing information and considering ways to educate the public about the issue, she said. Jeff Dunckel, pedestrian safety coordinator for the county’s transportation department, said distracted driving — and distracted walking by pedestrians who are talking or texting on their phones — could be factors. One of the more recent serious mishaps in a parking lot occurred when a North Potomac resident drove through the parking lot of a Sam’s Club store on

Officials are still investigating the July 23 incident. Montgomery County police spokeswoman Angela Cruz said no charges had been filed as of Aug. 20. Bowring said the county’s statistics on pedestrian collisions may be following a wider trend. “Nationally, there has been this recent trend upwards in pedestrian collisions,” she said. According to an Aug. 5 press release from the U.S. Department of Transportation, pedestrian fatalities increased about 8 percent from 2009 to 2011, with a total of 4,432pedestrianskilledafterbeing struck by vehicles in 2011. Montgomery County police conducted pedestrian safety “stings” around the county this year, stopping hundreds of vehicles and issuing warnings and citations for drivers who didn’t yield

to pedestrians or stop at marked stop sign lines. The enforcement of parking lotsafetyhaspresentedchallenges for local officials. According to a CountyStat presentation dated May 8, county police and the Department of Transportation “do not have jurisdiction to implement enforcement and engineering methods which they would normally use in county-owned roadways.” “They are restricted to education efforts and rely significantly on business owners and developers to address engineering and enforcement,” according to the presentation. Dunckel said the county’s targeted education and enforcement efforts at 10 high-incident intersections in the county have helped bring down the number of pedestrian collisions at those locations, but they are still working on a solution that could bring down the number of parking lot collisions.

Takoma Park man charged with attempted murder n

Reuben V. Lord stabbed a man in the back, police say BY ST. JOHN BARNED-SMITH STAFF WRITER

A Takoma Park man is behind bars, charged with stabbing a man three times in his back while he waited for an elevator this month. On Aug. 13, Takoma Park police announced they arrested Reuben V. Lord, 30, of Takoma Park and charged

him with attempted first-degree murder, along with assault, armed robbery and theft charges. The arrest stems from a stabbing on the 600 block of Houston Avenue at about 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 4, according to a police news release. Police said they found the victim at the scene, with three stab wounds in his back. The man was on the first floor of an apartment building waiting for an elevator when Lord came up behind him and began stabbing him with the knife, police said. After the stabbing, Lord al-

legedly walked outside and ran away. Police arrested Lord on Aug. 13 at his home, based on a lead they had received. Lord has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Sept. 6. He is currently in custody in Montgomery County jail, without bail. The victim was taken to an area hospital where he was treated and released, police said. Police could not immediately be reached for comment. No attorney was listed for Lord.




Reuben V. Lord of Takoma Park, charged with attempted first-degree murder, stabbed a man in the back three times, say Takoma Park police.

Betti Irmgard Kramer passed away on August 17, 2013 in Rockville, Maryland. Betti was born in 1921 in Nürnberg, Germany. When she was 1 year old she came to the United States with her parents, passing through Ellis Island. The young family settled in New York City, where her sister was born, and their parents gained U.S. Citizenship. While on a family visit to Germany in the 1930’s they found that with a war looming they could not leave Germany. Unable to return to the United States, the family remained in Germany through World War II. Betti grew up during World War II. The family endured the hardships of war. Their home was destroyed by a direct hit from a bomb, but the entire family survived. Betti worked as a secretary for the Triumph-Werke Nürnberg AG, makers of motorcycles, bicycles, and typewriters. During this time she met a dashing medical student, Bernhard, whom she eventually married. They had a son, Klaus. As the war ended, Betti used her New York brand of English to serve as a translator for the U.S. Army Command. With the help of the U.S. Army, the family’s U.S. Citizenship status was verified, and they were able to return to the States. Bernie, a German citizen, had to stay behind. But as a medical doctor, his case was pushed forward, allowing him to come to the U.S., and so the family was reunited. They moved from New York City, to Chicago, and then upstate New York where Bernie completed his residency, became a U.S. Citizen, and a second son, Peter, was born. Now Dr. Kramer, Bernie joined the U.S. Army and the family moved to Maryland. During his service in Korea, Betti took her sons to Germany to visit relatives and friends. Upon Bernie’s return from Korea, the family lived in New Jersey, Texas, then back to Maryland; advanced medical training took the family to Oklahoma for a short time before they finally returned to Maryland. Falling in love with Bethany Beach, Delaware, Betti and Bernie bought a beach home and spent as much time as possible enjoying Delmarva. Following Bernie’s death, Betti sold their home in Maryland and moved full-time to Bethany Beach. She found love again with Larry Burkhardt and they soon married. Betti and Larry divided their time between the Maryland suburbs and the Delaware beach. All her life Betti enjoyed dancing, travel, bridge, socializing with friends, and visits with her family. Betti is preceded in death by her husband Bernhard J. F. Kramer, MD, and her parents Leonhard and Luise Klaussner. She is survived by her husband Larry, sister Helen, sons & daughter-in-law Klaus, Peter and Mary Ann, nieces Constanze and Vivien, and stepson Lawrence. Also by her grandchildren Alexandra, Nicklaus, Patrick, and Cristina, and great-grand children James, Ashley, Ireland, Isabella, Anthony, Aaron and Dillon. Interment at Gate Of Heaven Cemetery, Silver Spring, Maryland will be a private family celebration of Betti’s life.

Continued from Page A-1 had been abused before they met, according to the charging documents. Joynes, 54, worked in 11 county public schools as a music teacher over the last 27 years, the last 10 at New Hampshire Estates Elementary School in Silver Spring. School system spokesman Dana Tofig said Joynes spent the majority of his career at four schools around Silver Spring: Francis Scott Key Middle, Eastern Middle, Cannon Road Elementary and New Hampshire Estates.

How it began According to Joynes’ arrest report, he became enmeshed in a federal investigation in October 2012, when Homeland Security investigators recovered emails between Joynes and a

South Carolina man. That led federal agents, along with Baltimore and Montgomery police, to Joynes’ Dundalk home on Feb. 27, when they arrested him trying to leave through the back door. Joynes said he would videotape his students and when watching the tapes, he would visualize the students performing oral sex on him, the documents said. The alleged incidents took place with students who attended the school from between 2005 to 2013. At New Hampshire Estates Elementary School, police obtained Joynes’ personnel file, and learned that in 2010, a parent had told the school’s principal that Joynes had asked her daughter if the second-grader wanted to crawl into his lap, and if the girl dreamed about him. A little over a year later, a firstgrader told her mother that Joynes had tickled her during class. As a result of those two incidents, the

school’s principal ordered in November 2011 that Joynes only conduct activities in public areas, keep the classroom door open during instruction, stay off the playground during recess, not sit at the cafeteria with students at lunch, and not to touch students “in any form,” according to his charging documents. In total, investigators found exploitative videos and photos of 14 of his students. In interviews with police, one of the girls recalled him abusing her when she was 5 years old, according to the documents.

A charge of rape In May, after seeing photos of Joynes published in the news, a woman came forward and told investigators that Joynes had sexually abused her in the 1990s when she was a student at Eastern Middle School, according to police documents. The victim, now an adult, told police that Joynes began sexually abusing her when she was in seventh grade. “Joynes told the victim that he loved her and would take care of her. Joynes talked about God and the victim felt safe with Joynes and they performed a mock commitment ceremony,” according to the police statement of probable cause. The abuse started as kissing, but progressed to other sex acts, police said. It began in the second half of her seventh grade year through the end of her eighth grade year, the records show. Joynes communicated with the girl in letters written in a code which he had taught her; he also had hisname tattooed on her right shoulder, investigators wrote. At some point during that two-year period, John Goodloe, principal at Eastern for much of the time that Joynes taught there, asked the girl about the music teacher, but she denied any inappropriate activity, according to the arrest records.

“I’m really worried, because I’m afraid that we’re going to forget about this issue after these things happen ... until next time.” Vanessa Pinto, New Hampshire Estates Elementary’s Parent Teacher Association Reached via phone Tuesday, Goodloe said he had asked her because he had noticed an “inordinate amount of communication” between the girl and Joynes. Goodloe, who is now pastor at a church in Northwest Washington, D.C., said the girl told him “everything was fine.” Goodloe said he had been surprised by the news. He remembers Joynes being “a throwback from the flower child ’60s period.” “I wish perhaps that she had given some indication to me or the dean of students or someone else that there was a problem or that there could have been a problem. I don’t fault her for this,” he said. In 2005, after Joynes had left Eastern Middle School and moved to New Hampshire Estates Elementary, the victim tried to confront Joynes and found a website he ran called “Bearded Wolf.” according to court documents. The website is not currently viewable online. She emailed him, demanding he “take responsibility” for his actions. Not long after, Joynes used the website to fake his own death, posting a note saying that he had committed suicide along with a death cer-

tificate, documents state. The victim initially believed the posting, but contacted Montgomery County Public Schools in 2009 and discovered Joynes was in fact alive.

The community reacts The news of the allegations left parents stunned. “Nobody wants to talk about [the abuse],” said Vanessa Pinto, a member of New Hampshire Estates Elementary’s Parent Teacher Association. “I’m really worried, because I’m afraid that we’re going to forget about this issue after these thing happen ... until next time,” she said. “I hope we receive support from the county.” Pinto said she worries there may be other victims who have not come forward because of the stigma of the abuse and because the topic is “taboo.” In a June 11 confidential memo, Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Joshua P. Starr wrote to members of the county Board of Education about a new plan — involving a confidential database with an alert system — that would “improve the process for tracking and managing information regarding allegations of inappropriate interactions between Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) employees and students.” Tofig said discussions regarding these changes were going on last year and that implementation of the new process is planned to start this year. “This process improvement is the result of studying several cases alleging the occurrence of inappropriate behavior,” Starr said in the memo. Staff Writer Lindsay Powers contributed to this report.

Montgomery examines rise in heroin deaths Officials cite difficulty of getting prescription drugs as possible cause




Montgomery County historically has ranked low in the number of deaths from alcohol and other drug overdoses, but a recent spike in heroinrelated deaths has officials alarmed. Seven overdose deaths have been tied to heroin use in Montgomery County since March, including six since the beginning of June, according to a news release Aug. 14 from the Montgomery County Police Department. The seven deaths equal the total in 2010-12 combined. The victims range in age from 19 to 45 and are spread throughout the county, according to the release.

“To have seven in six weeks and seven in three years, that’s a big spike for us,” said Capt. Nancy Demme, director of the police department’s Special Investigations Division. Because of the increase, police have pooled their resources to try to create a “holistic” approach to solving the problem, she said. Narcotics and homicide detectives work closely to investigate the deaths, trying to determine where the heroin came from, as well as investigating the death itself. Demme pointed to increased efforts by the prescription drug industry to cut down on the abuse of their products, which they fear could drive more people toward heroin. When addicts run into problems getting prescriptions for legal drugs filled, they often turn to heroin because it’s more readily available, Demme said. But heroin varies widely in

quality, rather than the controlled dosages of prescription

“To have seven in six weeks and seven in three years, that’s a big spike for us.” Capt. Nancy Demme, director of Special Investigations Division pills, which can lead to a deadly mistake for some users. Overdoses don’t cover all of the deaths that come from heroin, said Raymond Crowel, chief of behavioral health and crisis services for Montgomery’s Department of Health and Human Services. Suicides or deaths in vehicle crashes while using heroin are

related to heroin use, but are not part of the overdose statistics, he said. Last week’s announcement came less than a week after Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) met with officials from federal, state and local governments in Elkton to highlight the problem of deaths from drug overdoses in Cecil County and throughout Maryland. From 2007 to 2012, Cecil had the second-highest overdose death rate in the state, behind only Baltimore city, according to a release from the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The death rate was calculated based on the number of overdose deaths per 100,000 residents, so jurisdictions could be compared fairly. Montgomery County has the lowest overdose death rate in the state during the same time period, according to the state report. As part of the state’s efforts to address the problem, both

the state and individual counties have come up with overdose prevention plans, said Kathleen Rebbert-Franklin, acting director of the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Administration, part of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Local jurisdictions will examine what data they haven’t mined, including that provided by treatment centers, emergency rooms, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and emergency medical services. “How do we want to use all these data sources?” RebbertFranklin said. The local response also will establish commissions to review each overdose death to try to find common denominators to prevent future deaths, she said. Montgomery always has had

a wide array of treatment options, ranging from preventive education to outpatient care, residential detox and aftercare that offers recovering addicts a chance to participate and engage with other people in recovery, Crowel said. He agreed that prescription drugs often are the first point of access to drugs because they’re more easily available. At some point, Crowel said, people often shift to heroin because it’s cheaper and users don’t have to go through doctors to get it. But the rise in heroin usage doesn’t mean prescription drugs aren’t still a major issue, Demme said. “That problem has not gone away,” she said.

Alarming drug deaths In the new movie, “Elysium,” the world’s rich have escaped to an orbiting space station, and in leaving their terrestrial lives, the well-to-do have taken with them reliable health care. Actor Matt Damon, part of the teeming earthbound poor, suffers a fatal dose of radiation poisoning. His only chance of survival is to sneak aboard the manmade Utopia and climb inside what looks HEROIN like a high-tech tanning OVERDOSES bed. Inside the device, AND HEALTH, he’ll be rid of all disease. With all its space SOCIAL opera tropes, the movie POLICIES ends allegorically — a disquisition favoring universal health care. Painting a potential future, past our current ills, is one thing science fiction does well. But here in the present, there was nothing allegorical in the news last week that heroin overdoses have spiked, across Maryland and in Montgomery County. The county typically has ranked low in drug and alcohol deaths. For heroin overdoses, the county had recorded seven over the last three years. But last week, authorities revealed the county had tallied seven only since March. It’s a disturbing trend, and elements of last week’s announcement reveal it’s a more complicated issue than some realize. For some, rising heroin deaths might be indicative of Montgomery’s urbanization, that the gold-flecked avenues are beginning to resemble the hardscrabble streets of “The Wire.” For others, the heroin deaths could be a sign of the suburbanization of hard-core drugs. Either of those may play a role, and if so, it’s a problem that will fall, largely, on the shoulders of the Montgomery County Police Department. As Capt. Nancy Demme, director of the police department’s Special Investigations Division, said the issue has connections to the health care debate. At least part of the increase comes from efforts to make it harder to acquire high-powered prescription painkillers, she said. Pharmaceutical companies are stepping up efforts to prevent abuse of their products, which means addicts are turning to heroin. Efforts to limit access to opioid pain relievers, as they are called, should be applauded. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the nation is experiencing a “growing, deadly epidemic of prescription painkiller abuse.” Seventy-five percent of prescription drug overdoses come from prescription painkillers, and the increase in deaths follows a 300 percent increase since 1999 in their sale. And the CDC says most of the time, if a prescription drug was involved in an overdose, it came from a prescription originally. The convenient fiction might hold they are often stolen from a pharmacy, but that isn’t true, the CDC says. Curiously, as the CDC reports of the painkiller epidemic, the National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that usage of cocaine and methamphetamine is declining. So one might assume it’s not that our appetite for drugs is increasing. Possibly, the issue is rooted in over-prescription. Our authorities aren’t waiting for a Hollywood hero to solve the problem. Narcotics and homicide detectives are taking a holistic approach, investigating each death, as well as the source of the heroin. And the efforts aren’t limited to Montgomery. The state and counties are coming up with overdose prevention plans, said Kathleen Rebbert-Franklin, acting director of the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Administration, which is part of the state’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. More data will be collected — from treatment centers, emergency rooms and coroners — and reviewed by local commissions to find common threads. What else can be done? With luck and perseverance, the local commissions will find out. What data Montgomery knows now shows the ages of the county victims range from 19 to 45, and the deaths have occurred throughout the county, according to the police. The police statement leaves plenty of room for speculation, though it should dispel the notion that it’s a problem centering on a specific age group or area of the county. And it’s a problem that can’t be solved with a summer blockbuster, or two hours of escapism masking as a policy fable. Drug abuse is not a simple police issue. It’s a health care issue. Science fiction might provide a compass, but the journey, painful as it will be, is ours.

LETTERS TOT HE EDITOR From a glance, everything is relatively clean. From a glance you would assume a campus, which students like me and students like your children go to, is safe. But it’s not.

Support for a bottle bill hard to go on a nature walk without seeing rusted-over cans with vines trying to grow over them. While Maryland’s overall recycling rate remains about average, we as a state should be a champion in the recycling effort with our percentages. In their next session, if the Maryland General Assembly

passes a bottle bill, all this avoidable trash could be cleared. The bottle bill’s incentive recycling program would boost Maryland’s recycling rate and in turn make our communities cleaner. Who wouldn’t want to be able to have their children play in a park that’s used-beer can free? Right now, that idea in the

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

synthetic perils is not addressed by FSMA. Nor does the FDA address what is common sense to many scientists, doctors and parents: our bodies are dependent on the good germs and bacteria. If anything, rather than developing the antiseptic globalized industrial-style food system FSMA seeks, we should be searching for ways to increase the amount of good bacteria in our bodies. In fact, fecal implants to repopulate the gut with bacteria are not science fiction — the medical profession is now performing them every day. So, why is this bad science becoming the law of the land? First, it is partially due to corporate profit. Corporations depend on a global supply chain, and in doing so they are finding it increasingly difficult to deliver safe food. At the same time they are losing market share to the local food systems that customers are demanding — witness the sharp increase in farmers markets, community supported agriculture and restaurants offering “farm-to-fork” menus. To avoid legal liability, the corporations want to legitimize an industrial approach to sterilizing everything, without regard to the unnecessary and costly burden placed on local farmers. If your local farmer goes out of business trying to comply with the costs of hundreds of pages of new federal food safety regulations, that just leaves more customers without a local alternative. Second, there is the misguided advocacy of the consumer organizations, like Center for Science in the Public Interest. They mean well, but they think that throwing regulatory words and paperwork

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

Master plan balances environment, development I served on the committee that helped write the 1994 Clarksburg Master Plan and am upset by the groups coming in now trying to rewrite the plan and misrepresent its intent. The master plan was carefully crafted to balance the environment with community building. It placed 1,800 acres on the west side of Ten Mile Creek in the Agricultural Reserve and placed homes on the east side. The additional housing called for in Stage 4 of the master plan — in [an area meant for extra development to preserve other tracts] — is important to helping us attain the full master plan vision for Clarksburg. I never thought in 2013 I’d still be going to Milestone in Germantown to shop. The stores, restaurants, library, fire station and transit promised are not even under construction. So many promises to the people of Clarksburg haven’t been carried out. The same state and local laws that allowed the Intercounty Connector to be built in an environmentally sensitive way will protect the environment. Protecting the Ten Mile Creek watershed can be accomplished without destroying the promises made. Clarksburg is still waiting for things that most Montgomery County residents take for granted. To change course in Clarksburg now is not fair to the people who came here or want to come here.

Senior Kelsey Semou said she was impressed with the size of the school, a factor she thinks makes it “stand out” in the county. While she has seen the building when it still was under construction, she said actually entering the school brought out a “wow” from her. “Just coming in, it’s a different feeling,” she said. “‘Cause you’re actually in the building, it’s your school.” The school includes a new gym, a new cafeteria, a gutted and renovated auditorium and two courtyards, among a series of other new or improved features. At the school’s entrance, a visitor immediately walks upon a large gold and blue “G” paired

with the head of the school’s Trojan mascot decorating the floor. “When you come into the building, you certainly know whose house it is,” Handy-Collins said. The old building will be torn down but for the auditorium and a 9-year-old wing once called “J hall” that now has an added third floor, Handy-Collins said. The school’s hallways all have college-based names — helpful in the large building — including College Park Drive, Towson Terrace, Salisbury Parkway, Frostburg Freeway and Johns Hopkins Highway. Before students enter the school with classes on their mind, teachers and others were familiarizing themselves with the new layout and the elements that came with it. For social studies teacher and football coach Kreg Kephart — and Gaithersburg High graduate of 1973 — the move into

The fairground is in a sought-after area — bounded by Interstate 270, and Md. 117 and Md. 355, major county thoroughfares. The city’s MARC station is only a few blocks away. A new development could include new on-ramps to the surrounding highways, according to city documents. The motive behind rezoning was simply to increase the value of the land, Svrcek said, and does not reflect any plans to move. The land is estimated at $14.41 million, according to Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation records. But

the new school marks a period of change and adaptation. “It’s like going from a little one-room schoolhouse to a great big Taj Mahal that’s built next door or something,” Kephart said.

that number might not yet reflect the increased value due to the change in zoning, said Trudy Schwarz, Gaithersburg’s community planning director. “They may not have updated the zoning,” Schwarz said of the state’s assessment, which is updated every three years. “They may base it more on the current use than potential use.” Schwarz said there has been no movement since last spring to follow up on the rezoning. “We certainly haven’t received any applications,” she said. Based on the testimony during the hearings, she said, “plans are way in the future.” What was passed is called a “bubble plan,” Schwarz said. It allows for a wide range of development but no specific layout. Montgomery County Agricultural Center Inc. is a tax-exempt, privately operated 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, whose stated mission is to “promote the “We were finishing our evening and heard the announcement about them having the grilled cheese record, we decided we really wanted some knowing it was going to be soon,” she said.

Kephart said he will trade the portable classroom he taught in for 15 years for a classroom he described as “spacious” with “beautiful” desks. He said he thinks the stadium field will be “comparable to none.” While teams are practicing on the field now, home games won’t start until the 2014-2015 school year, when construction on the area around the field will be complete. “The inconveniences that we went through the last couple years I guess are worth it in the long run when you look to see what we have once we finally get in here,” Kephart said. The $95.8 million school site still has a year left of its four-year construction process, HandyCollins said. Richard Bosnic — who began teaching at Gaithersburg in the late 1980s and described himself as “an old dog learning new tricks” — said the school environment when he started

According to its 2011 tax return, the most recent available, the fair had $2.9 million in revenue, up from $2.7 million the year before, and “there were no tax liabilities for unrelated business income for the year ended December 31, 2011.” The Montgomery County Agricultural Fairgrounds was purchased in 1949 for $12,500 and for 64 years has provided entertainment and food for hundreds of thousands of fairgoers. This year, more than 200,000 people were expected to show up to ride the Vortex, race hermit crabs and eat funnel cake. They won’t have to worry that this will be the last year, Svrcek said. “Cotton candy is not leaving Gaithersburg anytime soon,” Svrcek said.

from Timmon’s Concessions. Hogan said he had a good feeling about his chances of meeting his goal this year and the weather helped him do that. “Without the weather we might not have made it. I thought the record would fall on Saturday but the crowd on Friday was hungry and eager,” he said. This year’s fair crowd of 220,000 bested last year’s crowed by 10 percent, according to Marty Svrcek, executive

and the environment now is “night and day.” For Bosnic, preparing for this upcoming school year has meant learning how to use the Promethean boards, which were only introduced into some classrooms in the old building and represent one of several technologies he sees changing how kids learn and how he teaches them. As the school community moves into the new building and becomes more deeply involved with the new technology, Bosnic said he doesn’t know how it will pan out but that it sounds exciting. “My guess is everything’s going to change dramatically,” he said. Chris Taylor was found Monday where he will be teaching his media productions class with the help of a studio space strictly for filming, updated equipment and several editing suites to make “Blue & Gold TV” come to life.

“Our old studio, it was about the same size, but we also had all the computers in there so students were editing while other people were trying to film and it was very chaotic at times,” Taylor said. Among the athletes walking the halls on Monday, Damian Harkun, 16, said he was struck by the amount of space in the school and that he liked the building’s design. Though he had been at the school for football practice for several days, much of the campus still was new to him. “I haven’t even seen the whole building yet,” he said. “I’ve only been to certain parts.” Though the building marks a significant change for the school, Semou said she thinks the school community will remain much the same. “We’re still going to have that Trojan pride we always had,” she said.

THE FACTS OF THE FAIR Pigs, poultry and potties entered fair contests n The Montgomery County Agricultural Fair ended its 65th season topping its all time attendance record by 10 percent, logging in 220,00 visitors.

Customers for the final fair day could order some of the other cheese concoctions offered like the Maryland white cheddar from Chappel’s Creamery in Easton or goat cheese. “We will probably increase the

amount of the sharp cheddar by 50 percent next year,” Hogan said. Next year The Big Cheese stand will turn 61. While Hogan isn’t sure about a goal for next year’s stand, he said it may have more to do with a pretzel and nacho cheese combo than the traditional grilled cheese sandwich. In the meantime, Hogan said he’ll continue to eat a grilled cheese sandwich once a week, as he prepares for next year’s fair challenge.

Whether fans remember him as coach Walter Oakes from “The Cosby Show” spin-off “A Different World,” his role as Andre Krimm beside Scott Bakula in the movie “Necessary Roughness,” or dozens of stand-up specials, Sinbad has been a part of most people’s lives since the 1980s. The comedian is hitting new territory now, bringing his show “Make Me Wanna Holla” to movie theaters across the country for one night only. Fathom Events will screen the special locally at 8 p.m. Aug. 22. The film will feature Sinbad’s classic style of comedy and showcase his love of funk music. SINBAD: MAKE Sinbad spoke with A&E to talk about the show, his love of music and ME WANNA how basketball changed his life. A&E: First off, what can you tell



me about “Make Me Wanna Holla?” Sinbad: Man, that’s a big question! It’s funny and we shot some really good film. Why don’t you break it down and tell me what you wanna know.

Teenage quartet comes back from the dead to perform in Olney



The four guys were kind of nerdy in high school, but they were friends and really liked singing together as the Plaids. Their dream was to perform in public like their idols, four-part harmony groups like the Mills Brothers, the Ames Brothers and the Four Aces. The Plaids were driving to their first gig when, tragically, they ran into a bus filled with Catholic schoolgirls on their way to see the Beatles perform on “The Ed Sullivan Show” in 1964. The girls were fine but the guys didn’t make it. Up to the stratosphere they went and there they’ve stayed until Saturday, when they de-

scend through a hole in the ozone layer to the historic stage at Olney Theatre Center for one last chance to realize their dream. “The universe has allowed them 90 minutes to do the show,” said director and choreographer Bobby Smith about Olney’s production of the off-Broadway hit musical “Forever Plaid.” The show is about how the four singers overcome their insecurities, and together somehow manage to put on the concert they’ve always envisioned. “It’s their chance to get over what held them back when they were younger,” Smith said.

The parent trap: Dark comedy opens this week at Round House Director, actor collaborate for first time after years of friendship



THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE n When: Aug. 21 to Sept. 15 (see website for specific dates and times)


n Where: Round House Theatre, 4545 East-West Highway, Bethesda


Longtime friends and first-time artistic partners, director Jeremy Skidmore and actor Kimberly Gilbert will collaborate on the Round House Theatre production of “The Beauty Queen of Leenane,” opening today. “Even though you’re living in a community of actors you know really well, sometimes the perfect time to work together takes a long time to manifest,” Skidmore said. “In this case, it took a really long time.” Skidmore and Gilbert have been friends for 13 years but “Beauty Queen,” a 1996 dark comedy by Irish playwright Martin McDonaugh, will be their first production together. “I’ve wanted to work with him forever,” Gilbert said. Though she was eager to collaborate with an old friend, Gilbert said “Beauty Queen” was entirely unfamiliar. “I had never read it and never saw it,” Gilbert said. “But I was familiar with the playwright ... And then when I got the script, it was insane and brilliant and I loved it.” “Beauty Queen” opened in Galway, Ireland, in 1996. After its monthlong run on Broadway in 1998, the play earned six Tony Award nominations, winning four — Best Leading Actress in a Play, Best Featured Actor in a Play, Best Featured Actress in a Play and Best Play Direction. The show tells the story of Maureen, a spinster in her 40s, still living with her mother, Mag, a selfish and miserable

When Maureen is faced with one last chance at love and an escape from her pathetic life, Mag does her best to sabotage the opportunity. The Round House actors have been working with dialect coach Leigh Wilson Smiley to master the Irish accent. “[The play] can be heartbreaking one second and then laugh-out-loud funny in the next,” said Gilbert, who plays Maureen. “And those are the best

kinds of plays in my opinion.” It’s McDonaugh’s writing that Gilbert said drew her into the “Beauty Queen” script. “I knew that Martin writes really grassroots human beings in not-sogreat circumstances that find poetry in spite of their surroundings,” Gilbert said. “And I find that so beautiful.” Unlike Gilbert, this is not Skidmore’s first time working on a McDonaugh piece. In 2008, he directed the play-

wright’s “The Lieutenant of Inishmore” for Signature Theatre. Though he had read “Beauty Queen,” Skidmore said he’d never seen a production of the show. “I remember how funny I thought it was and then ultimately at the end how much it took me by surprise,” Skidmore said. “The more films you watch and plays you see and scripts you read, it becomes more and more difficult to be caught by surprise, and I think that’s something McDonaugh’s really good at.”

Both Skidmore and Gilbert said McDonough’s portrayal of a small town is something that struck them. “I grew up in a series of small towns and I guess what I’ve noticed ... there’s always two ways in which to step out of the microcosm,” Skidmore said. “A person goes, ‘That’s it, I’m out of this town as soon as I graduate’ .. or they get married. The other is when an opportunity arises.” “There are so many small towns even in America where there is just nothing to do,” Gilbert added. “You know those kinds of people who are stuck but who are just not going to be braver than they think they can be ...” She may be able to relate to “Beauty Queen’s” depiction of a small town, but one thing Gilbert said she can’t connect with her character. And she’s OK with that. “Everyone has, on some molecular level, problems with their parents,” Gilbert said. “But it’s mountains to molehills on the difference between issues [Maureen] has with her mother and I have with mine ... I call my mother every day and tell her I love her as much as I can ... because, man, this character is starved for a positive role model.”

Jim Carrey’s mea culpa a good first step for ‘Kick-Ass 2’ BY


“Kick-Ass 2,” the sequel to the 2010 adaptation of Scottish comic book author Mark Millar’s “Kick-Ass,” comes in right on the bubble: It’s no better, no worse and essentially no different from the jocular, clodhopping brutality of the first one. Here in writer-director Jeff Wadlow’s crimson bauble, Chloe Grace Moretz and Aaron Taylor-Johnson reprise their roles as Hit Girl and Kick-Ass, respectively — the homegrown, limb-lopping superheroes and high school classmates (he’s older, but she’s tougher) who spill more blood than a klutzy production assistant on a Tarantino shoot. Jim Carrey plays a supporting role in “Kick-Ass 2,” that of Colonel Stars and Stripes, a born-again Christian and former mobster who leads a pack of alleged good-guy and goodgirl masked vigilantes cleaning up the streets. After filming the sequel but before its release Carrey disassociated himself, tweeting: “In all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence.” He cited the most recent example of an American school massacre, Sandy Hook, as the tragedy that “caused a change in my heart.” Then came the counterarguments from Carrey’s “KickAss 2” collaborators, including

Moretz. She presumably has a percentage of the sequel’s profits and sound business reasons to object. “It’s a movie and it’s fake,” she said, “and I’ve known that since I was a kid … if anything, these movies teach you what not to do.” Separately Millar, who executive-produced the sequel, chimed in with his fiscal gratitude: “For your main actor to publicly say, ‘This movie is too violent for me’ is like saying, ‘This porno has too much nudity.’” Moretz’s comment was the oddest, the one about how “Kick-Ass 2” instructs us in the costs of all that quippy, bloodthirsty street justice. Honestly, now. These movies do not teach anybody anything about avoiding the kick-assery. Worse, director Wadlow’s fight sequences satisfy none of my action-movie requirements for clarity and excitement. They don’t even satisfy my cheapest revenge impulses. The sequel sets up one round of heinousness after another, and the audience waits for the money shots. When the meanest girls in high school bully Mindy, aka Hit Girl (the bullying here is constant and hammering), she pulls out her late father’s “sick stick,” which causes instantaneous and simultaneous projectile-vomiting and projectile-diarrhea, and that is meant to be really sick, as in

cool. So is the scene of attempted rape, played for laughs and focusing on Christopher MintzPlasse’s self-made supervillain, who tries but fails to assault the vigilante (Lindy Booth) who calls herself “Night Bitch.” (Honestly, this movie is rank.) I can only imagine how this scene will play to the assault victims in the audience, especially when Booth’s character, hospitalized though apparently unviolated, says: “It’s my own fault.” I want to be believe Carrey’s 11th-hour apology. Clearly he read the script (his character’s dog bites off the genitals of his adversaries) and he may have done a quick body count in his head while reading. But it’s not the quantity of the carnage in a movie, it’s the quality, and as staged and filmed “Kick-Ass 2” is a cruddy mediocrity. Near the end Moretz’s character says she must leave New York City and hide out because “vigilantes don’t get a free pass.” It’s the best joke in the movie; in terms of its own hypocritical morality, “Kick-Ass 2” hands out free passes left and right.

Salvation for the 99 percent in ‘Elysium’ BY


Viewed from an aerial narrative perspective, writer-director Neill Blomkamp’s 22nd-century-set “Elysium” is about an ex-con factory worker (played by Matt Damon), a man suffering from a radiation dosage strong enough to kill anyone whose name isn’t above his movie’s title. Max, Damon’s character, dedicates an eventful few days on a decrepit, polluted Earth and a fancy gated community in the sky to ensuring legal citizenship and health care coverage for all. With most films, that’d be enough to cut out half the po-

tential American audience. But effective, evocative science fiction, which “Elysium” is, has a way of getting by with an ILA (Insidious Liberal Agenda) in the guise of worst-case dystopia. Loaded with action, a lot of it excitingly imagined, “Elysium” boasts many of the teeming strengths of South African filmmaker Blomkamp’s previous R-rated sci-fi success, “District 9” (2009), which replayed a host of immigration and apartheid themes with humans and aliens. This time we’re in a world photographed mostly in and around Mexico City, standing in for a dusty, forbidding Los Angeles af-

Matt Damon (right) stars in Columbia Pictures’ “Elysium.”


ELYSIUM n 3 stars n R; 109 minutes n Cast: Matt Damon, Jody Foster, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga n Directed by Neil Bomkamp

ter the destruction of the ozone layer. Up in space, the richest of the rich swan around in beautiful clothes and apparently endless sunshine on an immense space station known as Elysium. This carefully manicured Eden resembles the better parts of your tonier Southern California enclaves, without the conspicuous service industry underclass. On Elysium, everything from a broken wrist to cancer can be cured by a quick liedown in the home-installed “med bay.” On Elysium, the fearsome defense secretary, in cahoots with EPI (Evil Private Industry, personified by William Fichtner), is played by Jodie Foster. By design, her performance is only slightly less robotic than the Maschinenmensch robot woman, Maria, in Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis,” a major influence on Blomkamp’s movie. After Max suffers the lifethreatening radiation blast in an industrial accident, he joins forces with an underground revolutionary (Wagner Moura) intent on kidnapping Elysium’s CEO. In exchange, Max receives his sole hope for survival: a free ride on an illegal flight to the promised land, where he can be cured in a near-instant. Start to finish, “Elysium” puts its main man through the mill. With only days to live, Max must fend off attacks from a psychotic mercenary recently let go from Elysium’s payroll. He’s played by Sharlto Copley, the feverish overactor who starred in “District 9.” Damon has an awfully good nose for material; even when “Elysium” grows allegorically simplistic or familiar, the script avoids pounding cliche, and Blomkamp and his design and effects teams give us a plausibly harsh idea of things to come. Some things are fun, such as the bubblelike opaque cocoons designed to keep 22ndcentury bullets from doing any harm. Other things decidedly are not fun, such as the artful panoramic vistas revealing just how lousy a life we’ll be inheriting in the year 2154. As did Alfonso Cuaron’s “Children of Men” (2006), “Elysium” relies on a protagonist who isn’t puffed up with bravado, the way a prototypical Tom Cruise hero tends to be in these kinds of stories. Damon has true regular-guy appeal, and while she hasn’t enough to play, Alice Braga (as his childhood sweetheart) matches up well with Damon’s man on the run. I like Blomkamp’s casting; we’re spending time with a multinational array of interesting faces and voices. The future according to “Elysium” may rest on the shoulders of a bankable, likable American movie star, but he’s fighting for something larger than himself.

Alinea: A wine connoisseur’s dream is just a short flight away Inventive, exciting, imaginative, fascinating, thrilling, exceptional, delicious, amazing ... the list of superlatives used to describe dinner at Alinea is nearly as long as the drive from O’Hare to the restaurant’s location in Chicago’s Lincoln Park district. At Alinea, a refined, exquisitely prepared meal is transformed into performance art where the chef, staff and diner are each intimately involved in the entire experience. It is no easy feat to match wines with ingredients as varied as rabbit, cherry blossom, wasabi and smoke. The courses dance from light and airy (green apple taffy balloon) to multifaceted and profound, each designed to require the diners to interact with the preparations. This makes the wine pairings even more difficult since there are often multiple options within each course that provide different intensities


BY LOUIS MARMON and sequences of flavors. Not surprisingly, the talented team at Alinea made outstanding wine selections that both complemented and enhanced the evening’s multiple dishes. Alinea offers two levels of wine pairings. Considering the price of the evening and the reputation of the establishment, it was easy to opt for the less exclusive choice, confident that the wines would be both excellent and surprising. They opened with Jean Lalle-

ment et Fils “Verzanay” Brut Grand Cru Champagne. One of the smaller cham-

pagne producers, Lallement farms slightly less than 10 acres in Montagne de Reims, Champagne’s most northern

region. A blend of 80 percent Pinot and 20 percent Chardonnay, it had floral, fig and citrus aromas that extended into subtle stone fruit, melon, honey and herbaceous flavors. The long finish was complemented with clove, pepper and candied fruit. The next pairing wasn’t really a wine, but rather Sake which is produced by fermenting rice in a fashion similar to making beer. The Takasago Ginza Shizuku “Divine Droplets” Junmai Daiginjo-shu is created in igloos

located in the northern Japanese province of Hokkaido when the temperature falls below 14 degrees. It was silky, very fragrant beauty that began with cedar, mint and slightly salty aromas which flowed beautifully into delicate honeydew, jasmine, and mineral notes with an almost sweet, persistent finish.

German Rieslings are underappreciated in the U.S. The Dr. Thanisch “Berncasteler Doctor” Kabinett 2010 — so named because a 13th century Archbishop was miraculously cured with a sip of wine from this vineyard — is one of the country’s finest Rieslings. Elegant, refined and enticingly complex, it had pear, peach and smoky spice fragrances that led into concentrated and ideally balanced apple, melon, and pear flavors combined with hints of petrol, honey and minerals. It is an axiom that it is nearly impossible to pair any wine with artichokes. That is why the surprising Lopez de Heredia “Vina Gravonia” Blanco 2003 was such an inspired,

ideal choice. A Rioja white created from 50 year old vines, this 100 percent Viura had almond, honey and stone fruit aromas that joined layers of

oak, apple, earth, wax and pear flavors to provide a complex, medium-bodied and unique foil to the earthiness and flavors of the artichokes. Complementing the veal cheeks and a melange of “spring bounty” was the Ar. Pe. Pe. Grumello “Rocca de Piro” Valtellina 2006, a sophisticated Nebbiolo with a nose of candied cherry, roses and raspberries expanding into notes of dark berries, earth and leather. Chosen to pair with a diverse panoply of condiments to savor with five different duck preparations was the marvelous Chateau Musar 2004 that showed spicy dark cherry, raspberry, toffee and subtle gamey favors. The best of the dessert wine offerings was the delicious caramel, honey and lemon peel flavored Disznoko 5 Puttonyos Tokaji-Aszu 2005,

a nectar like delight with seamless balance and alluring sweetness.



is dedicated to bringing folk musicians and performances to venues in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia. According to Summerour, the group supports more than 200 events a year. “I saw the New Century show almost a year ago at the Irish festival in Fairfax,” Summerour said. “ ... I just said, ‘I have to produce this show.’” Based in D.C., New Century offers programs in both performance and professional development in an effort to make Irish music accessible to the public. The performance branch of the company is broken into two ensembles: The New Century Ceili Band and The New Century American Irish-American Company. The latter is the group of 20 dancers and musicians who will perform at Saturday’s concert. Peter Brice of Annapolis founded New Century in 2011 along with choreographer and step-dancer Kate Bole. According to Brice, his ancestors immigrated to Annapolis from Ireland around 1698. Though he said he didn’t grow up with a strong Irish tradition, Brice, a button accordion player, said he “took up Irish music because [he] loved the sound.” Brice went on to graduate from the Peabody Conservatory Preparatory program and earn a bachelor’s degree in Irish Traditional Music and Dance from the University of Limerick. The New Century style of Irish music is largely informed by the legacy of accordionist and composer Billy McComiskey, fiddler and composer Brendan Mulvihill and Irish dance expert Peggy O’Neill. Though she is now deceased, O’Neill’s daughter Laureen and other instructors carry on her legacy through instruction at the O’Neill James School of Irish Dance. McComiskey, who taught Brice to play the accordion, and Mulvihill came to D.C. from their native New York in 1975. They played as The Irish Tradition, frequenting The Dubliner, an Irish pub on Capitol Hill. Their sound drew heavily on the accordion tradition that comes out of Galway. The sound developed by McComiskey and Mulvihill in the 1970s and the style of dance made popular by O’Neill in the 1960s has helped to define the Maryland tradition of Irish music and New Century’s style of music. “We have a native style of Irish traditional music that we’ve grown here,” Brice said. “With this rooted Maryland identity, [we’re] able to bring it home.” Beyond their accordion-fueled sound, which differentiates them from Irish traditional music in New York which is largely defined by the fiddle, another unique trait about the members of New Century is their heritage. “Not everyone is of Irish decent,” Brice said. And even those such as Brice who are of Irish decent are more likely to be several generations removed from the country. “In Washington and Maryland, this Irish tradition would be the province of native-born Americans as opposed to places like New York or Boston where it’s still often played by the first

Smith, who covered all four roles in the original play Off Broadway, said the show has beautiful music — arrangements by James Raitt of classics such as “Three Coins in a Fountain,” “Heart and Soul,” “Catch a Falling Star” and “Love is a Many-Splendored Thing.” It is also very funny and also very touching, he said. “It’s not a jukebox musical — it’s very well crafted,” said Smith. “It has a script and things happen, the guys change.” The leader of the group is Frankie, played by Austin Colby, who studied theater at American University and lives in Silver Spring. “Of all the four, he’s probably the most confident but even he gets a little nervous,” said Colby about his character, who must deal with his asthma attacks and the insecurities of his fellow singers. “He cares about the guys, and he constantly wants to keep the show going,” Colby said. “It’s great music, and the characters are charming,” he said. “You’re rooting for them to come out of their shell.” Brandon Duncan, who plays Smudge, agrees with Colby about the music. In fact, all four actors said they have enjoyed singing together on and off stage. “I love all the super-tight harmonies,” said Duncan, who studied musical theater at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Va. Some of the humor in the show is based on the singers trying to update the between-songs patter they wrote in 1964 for the audience they’re now in front of, he said. Humor also arises out of the quirks and maladies of the singers. “They’re all nerdy characters who don’t know what’s going on,” said Duncan. “But they never laugh at each other. They’re there to lift each other up.” Duncan said Smudge, for example, is definitely a worrier. “He’s like the Eeyore of the group, he doesn’t want to be there,” he said. “He’s a more introverted panicker [than the others], but by the end, his glasses fly off and he has a big solo.” Jinx, played by Chris Rudy, also gets a solo, “Cry,” made famous by Johnny Ray in the 1950s. “Jinx is the shy one of the group, but the others are very protective of him,” said Rudy, who studied theater at Towson University. A high tenor, Jinx is a lot more comfortable when he’s singing than when he’s talking to people, but the problem is that when he hits a high A, he gets a nosebleed. He’s also dealing with a bad case of stage fright. “He never remembers what moves he’s supposed to do or what the lyrics are,” Rudy said. Jinx is also experiencing a spell of sibling rivalry with his more outgoing step-brother Sparky, played by David Landstrom, who studied at American University in Washington, D.C. “Sparky is energetic, he’s the life of the party,” said Landstrom. “He loves the spotlight, and he’s always talking to the audience and mugging.” “It’s a fun role,” he said. “There’s a lot of energy you have to give off, it’s all very specific [to each character].” He said one of the challenges of the role is balancing the humor and the emotion in the musical, both of which he appreciates. “This isn’t a typical jukebox musical,” Landstrom said. “It’s really original, and it has more substance. It’s very touching. It gets me. It’s not just a collection of songs.”

I was in bands growing up and I was playing drums by the time I was in fifth grade. I had been playing music for 30 years as I became a comic right after I went to college to play basketball. It was always in me. I was a DJ and I was collecting music and listening to music. I would rather go see a live band than go to the clubs to hang out. For me, as I saw the music I love, the thing I love, start to leave … it’s not just about being old. You listen at these young folks’ music, they have live music growing up, but it was just that it was going away. It was dying. It just bothered me. So I do everything that I can to keep it alive. I always talk about it because I think when you take away a culture’s music, you lose that culture.

generations,” Brice said. But it’s their distance from the Irish culture

A&E: You’ve spent your career working clean and avoiding R and NC-17 material. Was that a conscious decision by you or was that just came naturally because you grew up the son of a preacher? Sinbad: Well, just because you’re a son of a preacher doesn’t make you that way. Sometimes you’re more crazy. I always liked controversial stuff. I think sometimes you need to push the limit. When I first started out, I was dirty, but we were trying to be Richard Pryor, man. All of us was trying to be Richard. He had set that standard. I said, “Man, we all sound the same.” We were a cheap imitation. It’s like being a Gucci bag knockoff. We were like Gocci — we would never be Gucci. ... I just wanted to do something different. I flipped it — I didn’t change my routine, I just changed the words. I didn’t change one thing that I talked about. I realized, “Man, not only can I be funny, I actually can become more controversial and talk about more stuff because I’m not cussing because I can get your attention.”

that Brice said makes The New Century sound and look distinct. “What’s really important about the work that we’re doing is that we’ve broken the IrishAmerican mold,” he said. “Sometimes IrishAmericans have an inferiority complex about Irish traditional music ... that they couldn’t possibly have it right ... In this area, we weren’t raised in it so we’re approaching it as we want to understand it fully ...” With their combination of 1960s and 1970s influences along with their own creative spin, Summerour said New Century has managed to do something not all ensembles can. “They celebrate the tradition that came before them,” Summerour said. “Peter is able to reach into the past but bring forth the future.”

A&E: Here recently, you’ve done some voiceover work with “American Dad” and the justreleased Walt Disney movie “Planes” — is that something you can see yourself doing more of in the future? Sinbad: I did a lot of it back when I first came in. I did “Homeward Bound” where I played a horse. I’ve done quite a few voiceovers. For me, it’s fun. And it’s quick. I have fun in there. I know a lot of people don’t, but I have a ball. I found a way that works for me. When I came in to do “Planes,” my character was a one-afternoon taping and they liked what I did and I came back in about two more times and they expanded the character. A&E: Sports seem to be a big part of your life — you played basketball and you starred as a defensive lineman in “Necessary Roughness.” Are you still big into sports? Sinbad: There was a time in my life when I was coming up — I love basketball like a person needs water to live. I loved it. I think basketball got thing, forget what you are today and think about what you want to become. People would laugh at me, but I was already seeing this other guy in my mind and I applied that to everything I did.

I want to produce other things. That’s what I’m excited about. As far as TV, I don’t know if I’ll do sitcom work again because once reality shows came in, you can’t make anything funnier than real cable now. Pawn boys and duck people, you can’t write that.

ired, moody, irritable, short attention span. Sounds like the typical teenager, right? Maybe, but these are also common concussion symptoms that can easily be mistaken for adolescent angst. Last week, thousands of Montgomery County Public Schools high school studentathletes underwent mandatory baseline concussion testing for the first time, a major step forward in providing awareness and education and ensuring the safety of the county’s athletes, said Dr. Michael R. Yochelson, the vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer for the MedStar National Rehabilitation Network. In June, the Montgomery County Board of Education approved MCPS Superintendent Joshua P. Starr’s proposal to provide baseline concussion testing at high schools

countywide. MCPS entered into contracts with MedStar, Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital of Maryland, ATI Physical Therapy and Metro Orthopedics and Sports Therapy to administer the testing. Yochelson said MedStar will also provide each of its six assigned schools — Walt Whitman, Walter Johnson, Northwood, Sherwood, James H. Blake and Col. Zadok Magruder — with an athletic trainer and a physician. While many of her peers seemed indifferent to the testing — athletes were supposed to go before Aug. 14 tryouts — Thomas S. Wootton High School sophomore Emma Weinberg is a major proponent for it. A concussion knocked the junior varsity soccer player out of the sport for eight months last year. Weinberg and her mother Julie aren’t convinced the hiatus, which the teen said began to affect her emotional well-being, needed to be that long. But doctors had no baseline to work from. A concussion is a force to the brain that causes a change in neurologic function, Yochelson said. Most concussed individuals recover within three weeks, but some can experience prolonged symptoms that include headaches, dizziness, inability to concen

Stu Vetter may have taken his 321 wins, his 2011 National High School Invitational title, his resume boasting more than 40 Division I college athletes and three that played in the National Basketball Association when he resigned in June, but don’t expect the Mustangs to take a step back. About two months after Vetter resigned, saying he wanted to visit his former pupils, the Mustangs hired Bryan Bartley from Hebron Christian Academy (Dacula, Ga.). “The hiring of coach Bartley shows our continued commitment to both academic and athletic excellence as a Christian school,” Montrose Christian Athletic Director Bill Vernon said in a news release. In addition to his duties as the basketball coach, Bartley will also serve as an assistant principal and director of advancement. Bartley played three years of college ball for Upsala and a professional season in Portugal from 1989-1990. He’s been on the marketing side of the sport with the Atlanta Hawks and the coaching side at the high school level for Landmark Christian (Ga.). He was also an assistant at Auburn for three years and a recruiting director for one. Most recently, Bartley was the athletic director for the past two years at Hebron. Now, he’s secured one of the country’s most prestigious names in high school hoops.


record of 596. Oh, and it featured three girls, an amount that none of the dozen or so coaches and officials asked last October could remember starting in a state championship, let alone to win while doing so. “Even with winning states, no one really knew who the golf team was,” said Wong, whose 146 twoday total was second on the team in the state championship. “Our school was all excited about the soccer team winning.”

at the state tournament, was asked by four different people if she founded the team that year. “It’s kind of ridiculous, I think,” said Bright, who finished the tournament with a 163. “You hear about football, basketball, soccer, but golf? You hear ‘We have a golf team?’” So if winning a state championship with a team complete with what’s thought to be the most girls in the history of the tournament doesn’t get the Patriots any love at pep rallies, then what does? “The record,” Bright immediately suggested. “That’s our goal. And I talk to Allison all the time and we’re saying ‘We’re going to break that record.’” Coach Paul Williams and Feldman were more hesitant to speak of records and the like just yet. The ball, as any golfer knows, “can bounce the wrong way sometimes,” Williams said. But no

amount of modesty could keep the duo from speculating, if not just for a second. “I think with this group of kids, we’ll be able to contend again,” Williams said. “They’re all shooting under par rounds right now.” Feldman has been going particularly low, firing a 29 at the University of Maryland golf course, site of the state championship, in a qualifier for the Middle Atlantic Professional Golfers Association Capital Cup qualifier, which he would go on to help Team Maryland top Virginia. Shah, Wong, and Bright have also been consistently at or around par. An even-par state championship score would be 568, well under Whitman’s mark of 596. “It’s always good to have a little pressure,” Feldman said. “It makes you concentrate that much more. I think it’ll be good, it’ll help us. We definitely have the potential to break that record. There’s no reason we couldn’t.”

trate, and quickness of thought process and problem solving. If a suspected concussion occurs, preseason results can then be compared to a similar exam. If there is a significant decline from the baseline, the athlete is likely concussed, Yochelson said. ImPACT (the software MCPS is using) testing is not a sideline examination, but should be administered once a student-athlete appears to be recovered or if there is question of ongoing con-

In his nearly decade and a half stint with the Mustangs, Vetter built a nearly incomparable system for preparing his athletes to make the transition from high school to college.

cussion symptoms, he added. If test results are abnormal, the test can be given once a week, but it is not recommended that it be done more often than that. Initial concussion diagnoses would likely be determined through the Standardized Concussion Assessment Tool at the time of the incident. Walt Whitman football coach Jim Kuhn said a major benefit of baseline concussion testing is that it takes coaches’

“There are still kids who want to come here, to Montrose,” he said. “To me, it’s a smaller scale of a college. It’s going to be pretty much the same thing I was doing at Auburn.” Bartley has his work cut out for him in replacing graduates Ishmail Wainright, now with Baylor, and Mark Williams, now with Temple, as well as transfers Therence Mayimba and Justin Robinson. But Montrose is still Montrose, and that name will perpetually carry

instinct out of the equation and leaves athletes’ safety in the hands of medical professionals. Yochelson said MedStar’s focus is to make sure athletes are provided appropriate management even beyond sports.

I’m going to exceed the expectations that people have for me.’ I think that’s the kind of kid he is.” Diggs said he deferred to leaders such as Blake Countess (Michigan), Zach Dancel (Maryland). Vincent Croce (Virginia) and Louis Young (Georgia Tech) at Good Counsel. Diggs doesn’t even remember how captains worked his senior year. But this summer, the Germantown resident said he benefited from having a leadership role thrust upon him. “You’re going to be more cautious on what you do and what you say and how you carry yourself,” Diggs said. “You want to make better decisions. You don’t want to make bad decisions, because people watching you want to do the right thing.” Once leading begins to come naturally to Diggs, he can focus on the field where he excels, setting an ACC freshman total-yardage record last season. “He’s a lot smarter than people think,” wide receivers coach Lee Hull said. “He’s very knowledgeable of the game. He does things to set people up, sort of little subtle things. I think most fans just see the big runs and stuff, but they don’t see how he sets them up to get the big runs, the big plays.” “He’s special. He’s got some special skills that you can’t teach.” On the other hand, Diggs is working on the skills he can learn. He admits, in hindsight, he didn’t weight train as much as he should have in high school. “When I saw a lot of people lifting weights, I saw a lot of people getting hurt,” Diggs said. “So I was a little scared of that, so I really just stuck to the track.” Of course, as evidenced by the arms he showed off recently, Diggs put his all into fixing that, just as he’s put his all into becoming a better leader. “You never worry about him in terms of his effort and everything that he’s going to do on the field,” Edsall said. “Now, I think with him becoming more of a leader, putting more responsibility on his plate, for him to do things for his teammates — I think those are things that are going to take him even further.” what her scores might be given her status as a straight-A student. “[Emma] started feeling better but she would still test poorly,” Julie Weinberg said. “She was scoring in the bottom half and they just kept waiting for her scores to bounce back. But some people just don’t score well. You need to have a concrete tool in front of you that you can compare.”

County full of field hockey contenders n

Season features wide-open race until playoffs BY


Montgomery County field hockey appears to be on the cusp of stepping into uncharted territories, or at least some not seen since the early 1990s. Any semblance of certainty has been thrown out the window. The days of “B-CC and everybody else” seem to be a bygone, a relic of the near two-decade-long Amy Wood reign. Now, as proven by last season’s playoff race in which Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School was upset by Thomas S. Wootton, which was then upset by Walter Johnson, while Poolesville made a run at the 2A state title and Sherwood was unexpectedly eliminated after an undefeated regular season, the theme leans more toward complete and total ambiguity at the top. “I don’t know what it is,” Poolesville coach Regina Grubb said. “It’s just a different time and era. There’s more competition. It’s changed a lot.” During Wood’s tenure at B-CC, from 1993-2011, the Barons accumulated 10 state championships in 16 tournament appearances, 277 wins to just 44 losses, and, at one point, nine consecutive Maryland titles. In short, B-CC was invariably the hunted, the team every coach starred on the schedule at the outset. These days, however, “you can’t just focus on one team or a few games,” Walter Johnson coach Erika Murray said. “Just about anybody can beat anybody. ... I think the playing field is starting to level out a little bit.” Contenders sprouted up all over the county last season, from Winston Churchill to Wootton, Walter Johnson to Sherwood, while the amount of competitive teams multiplied in droves (27 percent of last year’s reg-

ular-season games were decided by one goal or less while 10 went into overtime). The top was crowded, the fringe loaded with teams capable of upsetting anybody (e.g. 8-6 Walt Whitman beat undefeated Sherwood in the second round of playoffs). As for why the sudden parity in the system, Murray couldn’t pinpoint it exactly. She floated a theory that maybe more players are competing on the club level and the talent baseline has been slowly ascending. “I think the level of play around the county has increased tremendously and the schools that didn’t used to compete that well are becoming competitive,” Sherwood coach Amy Morse said. “It’s not just the typical schools that are great anymore. I think it’s a great thing, too. I think it really is motivating for the players to compete every game. It’s not just a few teams and everybody else, I think we’re starting to see some really great competition. It’s a wonderful cycle.” More than a dozen coaches responded to an informal Gazette poll asking which teams, private and public, they would consider the top five teams in the county. Given last year’s topsy-turvy nature, the results were expectedly scattered, with Walter Johnson, Wootton and Poolesville garnering the majority of the nods. Five years ago it would seem almost unthinkable to consider the notion that B-CC would be voted out of the top three. “Across the board,” Murray said, “this is the most talent I’ve ever seen in the county.” There was just one thing around the county that every coach spoken to agreed upon: Walter Johnson’s Anna Rowthorn-Apel. The top team may be uncertain. The top player is not. “She’s just a fun player to watch,” Grubb said.

Holton-Arms athlete wins national title

Bethesda resident Fabien Lefevre came just shy of winning his second medal on International Canoe Federation Slalom World Cup circuit with Saturday’s fourthplace finish in the C-1 (individual canoe) final of World Cup No. 4 in Slovenia. He finished a penalty-free round one-fifth of a second away from bronze.

Holton-Arms High School jumper Lisa Anne-Barrow leapt 18 feet, 9 inches at the Junior Olympic Track and Field National Championships, hosted by North Carolina A&T the week of July 22, good enough for national title recognition. Thomas S. Wootton’s Gwen Shaw helped lead the 400 relay team (45.24 seconds) to a championship as well.

Talented area teams reload for upcoming season NICK CAMMAROTA STAFF WRITER


Members of the Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School cross country team practice Monday at the fields on Meadowbrook Lane in Chevy Chase. nior Nora McUmber, Young only lost one senior from his top seven runners last season and spoke highly of several incoming freshman. One new addition outside of the new class is Helen Webster, who decided to forgo her senior year playing field hockey to run cross country. Young said Webster, along with Angelina Peterson and Amanda and Mara Cohen, will be counted on as seniors to help lead the group. A strong crop of runners return across the county, including six of The Gazette’s seven first team selections: Beakes, McUmber, Claire Beautz (Poolesville, junior), Sophie El-Masry (Richard Montgomery, sophomore), Taylor Kozam (Our Lady of Good Counsel, junior) and Lucy Srour (Winston Churchill, junior). On the boys’ side, the Wildcats will look to make it five titles in six years as Martin begins his 16th year of coaching. Despite graduating Nathaniel Rees, seniors Daniel Kosogof, Mathew Morris and Michael Spak return after all finishing in the top 25 at the county championships last season. “We’ve got a good little set of traditions on the boys’ side that works really well,” Martin said.

In high school sports, there are usually three types of championship teams. There’s the underdog school that rises out of relative mediocrity to win it all, then regresses a bit in the ensuing years. There’s the team that’s a culmination of the work put in by a particularly talented junior or senior class and wins a title or two. And then there’s the perennial powerhouse, the team that seems to reload year after year regardless of the circumstances. In Montgomery County’s cross country scene, Walter Johnson and Bethesda-Chevy Chase are the latter. Entering the 2013 season, B-CC coach Chad Young and Walter Johnson coach Thomas Martin once again appear to have their runners poised for success in what should be another competitive year of cross country in the county. Young’s girls’ squad enters the yearaimingtowinitsthirdstraight Class 4A state title after sweeping the county, regional and state meets last year while Martin’s boys’ team finished one win shy of capturing a fifth-straight 4A state championship after winning counties and regionals. “I think our girls’ team does a great job of taking it one practice at a time. Everybody’s happy to see each other again,” Young said. “They’re pretty in the moment and we have some really good leadership.” Led by junior Caroline Beakes, who won a state title on the Hereford course in 19 minutes, 17.4 seconds last season, and Gazette Player of the Year ju-

B-CC, WJ run in front of pack BY


“Seniors are tasked with the responsibility of transmitting how much fun and how important it is to be a dedicated runner. It gets in their heads, they get excited and they want to be part of it. It’s the seniors from the year before that make that happen. They instill that importance.” At Poolesville, senior Chase Weaverling likely will be the athlete everyone’s trying to catch this year as he won a 2A West Region title last year and beat Will Bertrand, in the Montgomery County championship. At B-CC on the boys’ side, senior Peter Horton is recovering from offseason sports hernia surgery while Young said senior Alex Riishojgaard looks very solid in the early going. Meanwhile, the following schools and their top returners all could pose a significant threat to WJ: Walt Whitman (Evan Woods), Northwest (Diego Zarate), Quince Orchard (Ryan McCann) and Richard Montgomery (Stephen Alexander). “Like many teams, we have a bunch of kids who hope to be that special kid that makes a huge leap from the year before,” Martin said. “We’ve been fortunate in the past that we’ve had a lot of kids who step up.”

Good Counsel girls’ soccer team just reloads Dorsey sisters could be one of county’s most dangerous scoring tandems n


It’s easy to focus on what the Our Lady of Good Counsel High School girls’ soccer team will be missing this fall: Harvard University recruit and the program’s all-time leading scorer, Midge Purce (101 goals). But in no way will the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference champion three of the past four years be short on talent in 2013. In fact, the Falcons look to be even more dynamic. “You just end up playing a different game,” longtime Good Counsel coach Jim Bruno said. “Midge was such a demander of the ball and people gave it to her. It just means we will play a little different style, I think we’ll spread the ball a

little bit more.” At the heart of what looks to remain a quite productive offense are two sisters, senior four-year starter and U.S. U-18 National Team forward Imani Dorsey and sophomore Nia. The two were only able to share the field for six games in 2012 before a severe concussion sidelined the elder sister, a Duke University recruit. But it became abundantly clear that their playing styles complement each other, Bruno said. “It’s awesome, they’re definitely connected on the field,” senior goalkeeper Megan “Stu” Hinz said. “It’s so apparent, we were at tryouts playing smallsided games and those two are just making passes around and everyone is just like, ‘Ah, the sisters are assisting each other!’” Purce’s scoring capabilities garnered much attention the past four years, as they should have. But when she scored a county-high 30 goals in 2011, Imani Dorsey still managed 22 of her own.


Our Lady of Good Counsel High School’s Imani Dorsey (left) dribbles past a teammate during practice on Aug. 15. While it will be nice for the Falcons to know they have a strong scoring option in Imani, Bruno said, putting numbers on the board won’t be her only role. The elder Dorsey is a playmaker in the midfield with impeccable field vision and a knack for finding teammates in open space. Nia’s strength

is finding and making runs to those seams in opponents’ defenses. “Imani has all the tools in the chest. I’ve been here 26 years and she is the most complete player I’ve seen,” Bruno said. “Nia is what I call a slasher type. She makes these great angle runs. You see this situa-

tion where Imani knows exactly what Nia is going to do and Nia sees her sister get the ball and makes these runs that are really just timed to match right up with her.” With Imani sidelined for the majority of 2012 and Purce out for several games due to U-17 National Team duties, Nia Dorsey stepped into a more prominent role even as a freshman. She tallied eight goals and assists last fall and Bruno said it is already obvious early that she is no longer worried about overstepping her bounds playing alongside older players. Imani will have several players to dish the ball out to in addition to her sister. Last year’s second-leading scorer, senior midfielder Courtney Parr (nine goals, three assists) and sophomore forward Nicole Bautista are among them. If anything, Good Counsel’s backline has more questions to answer after losing two major cogs in Jordyn Brock and Caroline Kimble. Returners Maddie Pack and Karli Cirovski will

have to step into more vocal roles as communication is integral to a team’s defense, Hinz said. The traditional stingy Falcons defense has nothing to worry about with Hinz in net, though, Bruno said. Last year marked the first time Imani and Nia Dorsey shared the field as teammates, though the time was shortlived. The two said they are looking forward to more time on the pitch together in what could be their last opportunity to play competitive soccer together. “I was so proud of [Nia last year], but I wasn’t surprised [by her success] at all,” Imani Dorsey said. “She’s a fantastic, strong player and wonderful, poised person. She had it in her all along. It’s great to be able to play together because we haven’t been able to before. We can read off each other just because we’re sisters, we know how the other one plays.”

Taking over a field hockey dynasty at Holy Cross BY


It’s one thing when a school is particularly pleased with its hiring of a new field hockey coach. It’s another thing entirely when the biggest rival of said school — in this case, the hiring was done by Academy of the Holy Cross — is genuinely thrilled for the program as well. “That’s awesome!” exclaimed Our Lady of Good Counsel High School field hockey coach Theda Bagdon upon hearing that former Walt Whitman coach Lindsey Weller had been called in to replace longtime Tartans’ coach Jenna Ries. “That’s a huge score for them.” Ries built the program into

something of a dynasty, claiming the last five Washington Catholic Athletic Conference titles, four of which by toppling Good Counsel in the championship game. The Falcons were just five minutes from ending the streak last October, but a late rally from the Kate Taylor-led Tartans added one more Holy Cross engraving to the monstrous WCAC trophy. “Yeah, I think there is some pressure for sure,” Weller said of filling in for Ries. “I think it would be naïve to think there isn’t. At Whitman, I was kind of building something, so this is a different challenge for me. It was still a really tough decision for me because you build relationships with the kids and the parents, but I think this was the right decision for me.” As with any coaching change, especially at a powerhouse such as Holy Cross,

One of those athletes happens to be Taylor, a first team All-Gazette selection as a

freshman last year who scored the overtime game-winner against Good Counsel in the WCAC championship. “She’s a pleasure to coach and I’m really excited,” Weller said. Weller’s mission is not just to top the Falcons, either. There is a budding St. Mary’s Ryken team, a competitive Elizabeth Seton squad and an increasingly difficult WCAC schedule to navigate. But, as Bagdon said, “it’s Holy Cross. Their girls are just extremely athletic. They’re going to be an extremely strong team and they’re extremely talented so I think they’re going to be just as strong of a team as always. Even though Jenna’s not there, they’re still going to be Holy Cross.” 1890471

there are bound to be some bumps along the way. But if there’s one person who can make a smooth transition from a Ries-headed program to a slightly different style, it’s a person who formerly played under Ries as both a lacrosse and field hockey player, which Weller did as a high schooler at Quince Orchard. “We have a lot of similarities in how we coach and I think I’m going to bring my own strengths to the table,” she said. “I take pride in how I coach. I would describe myself as an intense coach, motivated, caring and definitely field hockey-oriented.” As a coach with the Jackals club team over the summer — which Ries also coaches for — Weller has already begun the process of developing chemistry with nearly half her team and is familiar with their styles

A few years ago, a collection of eighth and ninth graders playing travel baseball could have only dreamed of having one of their games broadcasted by ESPN. More likely would have been a scenario where a few parents shot some grainy, between-the-fence footage to commemorate the momentous occasion. But when Dig In Baseball’s 13-and-under team won the United States Specialty Sports Association’s Elite World Series at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports complex in Orlando, Fla., in early August, it created a memory — ESPN3 broadcasted the game live online — that will last a lifetime. Dig In’s 13U team, wrapping up its first full year in existence, went 8-0 among a 32-team field at the USSSA national tournament and in the process, beat Gulf Coast Elite, 13-6, after trailing 4-0 in the championship and finished the year ranked 10th nationally by and 12th by “I think they got that Big League experience, kind of like their Sunday Night Baseball moment with a former Major Leaguer [Mike LaValliere] calling the game [along with Kevin Corke] with

Frazier played baseball at the University of Maryland, College Park and scouts for the Kansas CityRoyals,andit’sthatkindofexpertise throughout the organization the he feels sets Dig In apart. Throughout the year, his club played in national tournaments beginning in March and running through the World Series. “We try to expose our kids to thetoughestcompetition,”Frazier said. “We went to Myrtle Beach, Rocky Mount, Virginia and Flor-

We wound up playing 60-70 games and practiced twice a week atWatkinsMillHighSchool,trying toexposeourkidstothebestcompetition we could find.” Some of the players who led the team to a title included lefthanded pitcher Ethan Forbes, who led the team in home runs and steals, third baseman Gabe Levine, who led the team in RBI and is entering ninth grade at St. John’s College High School this fall, and A.J. Javitt, who played outfield and pitched. In the semifinals, Dig In rolled over another national powerhouse in Sports55 Elite, 7-0.

Dig In features a blend of players from mostly Montgomery County, but also Frederick and Howard Counties. While Maryland isn’t frequently thought of as one of the better baseball states in the country, especially when compared to Florida, California and many Southern states, Frazier feels his club proved something in Orlando. “I tried to get the kids to buy intoplayingforyourself,yourfamily, your organization and your state,” Frazier said. “Speaking in general terms, I think we definitely flew under the radar with the

Clarksburg soccer begins new era Edwards learned from mentor and former coach n


Michael Edwards first met Jeremy Spoales when he was a seventh grader at Banneker Middle School. Spoales was Edwards’ teacher at the Burtonsville school and the pair remained together all the way through 12th grade, when Edwards graduated from Paint Branch in 2006. Spoales was also Edwards’ soccer coach during that time period. Seven years after graduating high school and a year after serving as Spoales’ junior varsity boys’ soccer coach at Clarksburg High School, Edwards is taking over for his longtime mentor. Edwards is the second boys’ soccer coach in Clarksburg history as Spoales had been the coach for all seven years since the program’s inception, winning a 3A state title in 2009. Spoales said he’s stepping down to spend more time with his three young boys at home, who are of the age where they’re beginning to play soccer. He will, however, still serve as a club

coach with the Potomac Soccer Association. “It was very hard because the group coming back is a phenomenal group of kids,” Spoales said. “It seemed like the right thing.” Which leaves the Coyotes in the hands of Edwards, who steps into his first varsity coaching job with a veteran roster at his disposal. “The nice thing is that him having coached me for so many years, it’s still the same kind of

concept of building the program, having a tight-knit family atmosphere,” Edwards said.” A relatively inexperienced Clarksburg side finished last season with a 3-9-1 record, with wins against Watkins Mill, Damascus and Col. Zadok Magruder. This year, Edwards, 25, said the schedule is easier than it was in 2012 and he plans to adjust his formation based on the week’s given opponent. “It’s kind of cool that I’m tak-

ing over for my mentor and coach growing up,” Edwards said. “We talked about doing it for more years, but we got one year to work together as coaches. It’s cool to be able to take over the program.” 1894773
