BOWIE – “We don’t want a
Walmart!” Todd Sharpe yelled into
a megaphone while standing in the
middle of Glenn Dale Road. “We
don’t need a Walmart!”
Sharpe, a Bowie resident,
joined more than 50 other residents
gathered along Glenn Dale Road
and Annapolis Road to protest approval of plans for a Walmart store
in the Duvall Village Shopping Center.
The Prince George’s County
Planning Board approved WalMart’s plan earlier this year, which
includes 77,916 square feet of space
and 513 parking spaces. The District Council elected to review the
Planning Board’s decision, but decided to wait until the fall before
making a decision while appeals
from Wal-Mart and the community
play out in court.
Jennifer Dwyer, 27, who filed
the community’s appeal and has circulated a petition with more than
400 signatures, said she lives 150
feet behind the vacant property.
Dwyer organized the community
protest and has led the charge
against Wal-Mart because she does
not want what she said will be a
“bad neighbor.”
“I just feel it’s a really bad fit
for my neighborhood,” Dwyer said.
“It’s just too close. And on top of
that, Walmarts are a particularly
horrid retailer. They are crime magnets even compared to other bigbox stores. An average Walmart
sees over 200 incidents a year. This
is a well-known phenomenon.”
Residents are concerned not
only about crime, Dwyer said, but
also about increased traffic and a
possible devaluation of their properties.
“For me, there is nothing
blocking [the store] from my property, so when shopping carts come
rolling down the hill and garbage

there is nothing to stop it,” Dwyer
said. “If I decide to put my home on
the market, people are going to see
that.”
Amanda Henneberg, a spokeswoman for Wal-Mart, said the safe-
ty is a top priority for the company.
“A biased, flawed and inaccurate union-sponsored study from 10
years ago doesn’t change the facts,”

LANHAM — While Israel and
Hamas continue to wage war with
one another and the death toll continues to climb, local religious leaders and political pundits are weighing on in what they think about the
situation in the Middle East.
According to CNN, the Palestinian Health Ministry reports more
than 1,800 people have lost their
lives since Israel began Operation
Protective Edge about a month ago,
including more than 300 children.
Sixty-seven Israelis have died, most
of them soldiers, according to CNN.
While the war is being waged
thousands of miles from the shores
of Maryland, county residents are
feeling the impact.
Rabbi Steve Weissman of Temple Solel in Bowie said his daughter
had been on a month-long organized
trip in Israel when the violence
broke out. He said he gave his 21year-old daughter the choice to stay
in the volatile region for the remaining two weeks or return home.
“If she had decided to stay and
go off the program and go do something to be supportive of the country
I would have absolutely supported it
— I would have made sure she was
okay,” Weissman said. “The fact that
she had chose to come home I was,
as a parent, relieved when the plane
landed. I was on pins and needles
until it was on the ground here.”
Local religious groups agree
the thousands of Palestinian civilians killed because of the violence is
a tragedy.
“I don't care where you stand on
Israel, the fact that innocent Palestinians are dying because Israel has
felt the need to fight a military exercise against Hamas, that’s not good
for anybody,” Weissman said. “It’s

Water main break closes down Rhode Island Avenue
By Holden Wilen
Managing editor
HYATTSVILLE – A 12-inch
water main burst late Thursday afternoon left six homes without water
and a section of Rhode Island Avenue to be closed causing heavy traffic delays, but the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission will not
conduct a forensic analysis.
According to Ayoka Blanford,
public affairs unit coordinator for the
Washington Suburban Sanitary
Commission, the 73-year-old pipe
broke at approximately 4:30 p.m. at
4806 Rhode Island Ave./Route 1 in
Hyattsville.
Crews responded immediately,
but according to the WSSC, three
million gallons of water spilled onto
the road in the three hours it took
workers to stem the flow.
As of Friday night, the section
of road remained closed indefinitely.
“We are still in the midst of repairs,” said Lyn Riggins, a spokeswoman for the WSSC.
WSSC completed repairs Saturday and reopened all lanes on
Rhode Island Avenue.
WSSC is attributing the cause
of the pipe to its old age. Short of doing a forensic analysis, Riggins said
officials will not know the exact
cause for the break, but she confirmed an analysis will not be performed.
"No," Riggins said when asked
if WSSC will study the cause of the
break. "The pipe was 73 years old so
we know it was an aging pipe."
The pipe burst left six homes
without water, which have since
been restored, Riggins said.
The repairs required hiring an
outside contractor and will cost
somewhere around $100,000, Riggins said. The break is “one of the
more severe incidents” the WSSC
usually sees, she said. There are between 1,700 and 1,800 water main
breaks annually.
In an official statement, WSSC
officials promised to continue working to repair the agency’s infrastructure.
“WSSC appreciates the patience of our customers and all the
commuters affected by the water
main break and traffic consequences,” according to the statement. “The Commission is committed to infrastructure renewal and is
currently replacing 55 miles per year
of water main.
The repairs required hiring an
outside contractor and will cost somewhere around $100,000, Riggins said.
The break is “one of the more severe
incidents” the WSSC usually sees,
she said. There are between 1,700 and
1,800 water main breaks annually.

One dead in three-car wreck that shuts down Beltway
By Jim Davis
Special to the Sentinel
LANHAM – One woman is
dead after a three-car crash involving a Maryland State Police
cadet that closed down all four
lanes of southbound I-495 Friday
morning.
According to the Maryland
State Police, at about 8:30 a.m.,
Cadet Sebastian L. Reyes, 18, lost
control of his 2006 Ford Expedition
on the outer loop after using a
crossover and pulling into the fast
lane.
According to police, Reyes
sideswiped a 2000 Lincoln, causing
the vehicle to hit the jersey wall
while Reyes spun and struck a 2011
Subaru Outback.
Maryland State Police and
Prince George’s County Fire units
responded to the scene, shutting
down all four lanes of the freeway
to conduct an investigation. Traffic
clogged up all the way back to the
Intercounty Connector/MD-200.
Mark Brady, spokesman for
the Prince George’s County Fire
Department, said firefighters
helped free the Lincoln driver, identified as 59-year-old Karen HoltWilliams of Temple Hills, when
they arrived at the scene. Though
they were able to get her out, Brady
said Holt-Williams died on her way
to the hospital.
Reyes, another cadet who was
a passenger in his vehicle, and the
driver of the Outback were all uninjured.
A source close to the accident
investigation said when he arrived
the accident did not appear to be too
bad.
“It looked like another typical
beltway accident,” the source said.
According to the Maryland
State Police, the Prince George’s
County State’s Attorney’s Office
has been notified and will determine if it wants to press charges
once the police have finished their
investigation.
Reyes has been placed on
leave, according to the State Police,
and an administrative investigation
will be conducted.

County celebrates falling crime rate with National Night Out events
By Kelsey Sutton
Special to the Sentinel
LANHAM — Nearly 70 locations around Prince George’s County are hosting community events for
the 31st National Night Out in a continued countywide effort to combat
crime.
“We have a lot to celebrate in
terms of our public safety progress
and improvements in every part of
Prince George’s County,” said
County Executive Rushern Baker
III, who planned to attend county
events.
The Prince George’s County
Police Department will unveil a
memorial for police and public safety officers killed in the line of duty at
the District VI police station in
Beltsville. County Police Chief
Mark Magaw will attend along with
command staff, police department
members, county leaders and neighborhood civic groups.
The memorial resulted from an
effort by Beltsville community
members, who spearheaded funding
efforts to thank and memorialize
fallen heroes, according to county
police.
Some community centers, local
businesses and neighborhoods will
begin celebrations at 5 p.m. in locations like the Rolling Crest Community Center, St. Bernard Church,
Beacon Heights Elementary and the
Riverdale Heights Fire Department.
Events will end between 8 and 10
p.m.
At some events, like one held at
Granville Gude Park in Laurel, K-9
teams in action will entertain attendees and emergency response teams
will demonstrate how they do their
jobs. In addition, there will be free
food and games for children.
At another event held at Allen
Pond Park in Bowie, public safety
officials will provide information
about home security and identity
theft, and attendees will receive free
child identification kits. There will
be a moon bounce and other activities for children.
County officials said National
Night Out is a way to continue fighting crime and improving public
safety, which have been points of
emphasis for Baker’s administration
since he took office in 2010.
So far this year, Baker said the
county’s crime rate has dropped by 6
percent compared to 2013. Additionally, the county has seen 6.5 percent fewer property crimes and nearly 33 percent fewer homicides compared to last year, said Scott
Peterson, press secretary for the office of the county executive.
“This progress is due in part to
improved partnerships and cooperation between public safety agencies
and our communities,” Baker said.
“National Night Out exemplifies
this collaboration where neighbors
can spend time with fellow neighbors to promote crime prevention
and build partnerships with public
safety departments.”
National Night Out is a nationwide effort sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch to reduce crime rates by building community relationships.
Last year, during the 30th annual National Night Out, police officers and community members celebrated the lowest county crime rate
in more than 30 years, Baker said.
According to a 2012 FBI Uniform Crime Report, murder and violent crime rates in the county have
dropped 26 percent and 21 percent,
respectively, in the prior three years.
During that time, murder rates
in the county have dropped 26 percent, rape rates have dropped 23 percent and aggravated assaults have
dropped by nearly a quarter. Violent
crime across the county has also
dropped by more than 21 percent.
The event is not all about fighting crime, Baker said. It also provides a way for community members to get to know one another and
the police officers who serve them.
“National Night Out provides a
great opportunity in a casual and fun
setting for residents to meet or become better acquainted with our incredible public safety employees,”
Baker said.
The event also promotes neighbors exchanging contact information and getting to know one another
as ways to encourage neighborhood
communication about suspicious activity.
As part of the event’s tradition,
organizers will encourage attendees
to keep their porch lights and lamp
posts on from dusk until midnight.
The county will be part of the
more than 37.8 million people and
16,124 communities from all 50
states and United States territories
anticipated to partake in the National Night Out.
Statewide, Maryland has seen a
dramatic drop in crime; in 2012 police reported the lowest-ever rates of
homicides, robberies, aggravated assaults and violent crimes.
Maryland, however, still has
one of the highest homicide rates
around the country, with 19.94
homicides per 100,000 people, according to data from a 2012 FBI
Uniform Crime Report.
Robbery rates in Maryland are
also high, with 361 robberies per
100,000 people.
However, Baltimore City accounted for nearly 60 percent of
Maryland’s total crimes, 89 percent
of its total homicides in 2012 and 77
percent of its total robberies in 2012,
according to FBI data.
MD-450 and MD-197 top transportation priorities for Bowie
Jon Banister
Special to the Sentinel
BOWIE – At Monday evening’s
Mayor and City Council meeting,
Planning Director Joseph Meinert
highlighted road development on
MD-450 and MD-197 as the city’s
top transportation priorities, citing a
need for more traffic volume.
The two projects are No. 6 and
No. 4 on the Prince George’s County
priority list, respectively, both moving up two spots from last year’s positions.
The MD-450 project will
stretch from Stony Brook Road to
MD 3. The road currently has a traffic volume of 26,700 vehicles per
day, but that will more than double
by 2030 according to the report’s
projections. The report says the
stretch of road is “crucial to the city's
economic development since it provides principal access to the Bowie
Mainstreet commercial area.”
Meinert said the city has seen a
need to reconstruct the road since
1986, and it has been in the planning
stages since 1988.
“The road was in pretty sad
shape. It was in substandard conditions,” Meinert said. “All of those
things were taken into consideration, documented and that’s why
those resources were committed.”
However, Meinert said funding
is given incrementally, and after
completing planning and design, the
money stopped coming, further
pushing back the construction date.
“The big challenge on the state
issues is funding,” said Bowie Mayor
Frederick Robinson. “They did pass
an increase in gasoline tax last year to
try to rebuild the transportation trust
fund because there’s no money in it
right now. We have moved up a couple notches in the order, which is critical. So we’re making progress, but
right now there’s no state money
available for construction.”
In the city council’s letter last
September to the Maryland Department of Transportation, they praised
the state for its recent $650 million
pledge to transportation improvements in Prince George’s County,
but expressed concern none of
Bowie’s priority items were men-
tioned by Gov. Martin O’Malley.
“The City Council feels strongly that these projects, which will improve vehicular safety conditions
and the quality of life for our residents, should be given at least equal
consideration along with the many
emerging mass transit projects like
the Purple Line,” the letter read.
Meinart said if the funding
comes as soon as he hopes, then it
will still take up to five years before
either project is finished.
The plan for construction of
MD-197 would stretch from US-50
to MD-450, a 1.4 mile stretch with
31,400 vehicles traveling on it each
day. The report projects traffic volume will increase to 57,925 by 2030.
The design plan is to increase the

road from a two-lane street to a fourlane street.
Meinert also introduced public
transportation priorities including
new bus routes. The report mentioned bus service between MD-450
and the city of Greenbelt, between
Bowie Town Center and Largo Town
Center, and between Fairwood Parkway and Upper Marlboro.
Bowie resident Rammtita Jones
said she is hopeful about future developments.
“I think it would be a really
good thing for Bowie because we
have a lot of people here and people
want to use the transit system,” she
said. “I know I do instead of driving,
and I think it would be a very good
thing for Bowie.”

Bowie residents: Just say “No” to Walmart
From “Walmart” page 1
Henneberg said. “We proactively
work with communities and local
law enforcement to put the right
safety measures in place so that our
customers can continue to have a
safe and enjoyable shopping experience at Walmart.”
Dwyer said the United Food
and Commercial Workers Union
Local 400 is assisting her in her
fight. The union previously fought
the construction of Walmart stores
in Washington, D.C., and other locations. Dwyer said she approached
the union after reading about its battles on the internet.
Karina Rosado, a community
growth strategies representative for
the union, said Dwyer approached
her in December.
“We’re only helping by helping
them strategize basically,” Rosado
said. “But the big push is coming
from the community. These are
folks coming together, not labor
coming together.”
Rosado and Dwyer both said
the community’s plight should not
be characterized as a union-versusWal-Mart fight.
“Obviously the community and
labor have a common issue with this
big box store,” Rosado said. “So
why not work together to make improvements in the community?”
Henneberg also said Walmart
stores do not hurt property values.
According to a paper published by
the National Bureau of Economic
Research, an analysis of 600,000
homes purchased between 2001 and
2006 showed the value of homes located within a half mile of a Walmart store rose two to three percent
more than homes not near a Walmart.
The property used to house a
Super Fresh grocery store before it
went out of business. Dwyer said
the property has remained vacant
since she moved to Bowie, but it
does not bother her. If a retailer is
going to take over the property, she
said she would prefer it to be a
Whole Foods or a Trader Joes so the
store would offer a different kind of
product for residents and not compete with the surrounding grocery
stores. Additionally, she said, a
Whole Foods or Trader Joes would
not have as large of a traffic impact
as a Walmart.
Angelina Woods, a resident of
the Glensford condominiums, said
she agrees with Dwyer’s views and
is troubled by Wal-Mart’s reputation. When she moved in last year,
Woods said she had no idea WalMart had plans to come to Bowie.
“I was devastated,” Woods
said. “I am recently retired and I’m
thinking about my property value. I
was floored. I don’t think with the
characteristics of this neighborhood
that Wal-Mart fits in here. The surrounding area is rural residential
and some is even designated historical.”
Linda Banks, a resident of Legend Glens in Bowie, said the county’s pending approval of Wal-Mart’s
plans would be devastating for the
community.
“The county executive says he
is all for economic development,”
Banks said. “We want to support
economic development that is appropriate for our community, not
[one] that destroys the equity in our
homes.”
Dwyer said Wal-Mart has met
with the community a couple of
times to hear residents’ concerns.
However, she said Wal-Mart has
been dismissive and unwilling to
consider suggestions from residents, such as not operating 24
hours or building a retaining wall.
“They are unwilling to compromise and that’s fine,” Dwyer
said. “We will protest, so no Walmart. If this is going to be how you
are going to treat us…nobody wants
a bad neighbor.”
Henneberg said there is no
need for a retaining wall because the
building and shopping center have
existed for more than 20 years without needing one. She also noted
Wal-Mart has been involved with
community giving in Maryland, donating more than $6.8 million.
However, Dwyer said donations do not help her — or her
neighbors. When she asked a WalMart representative to tell her a specific way in which the store will
benefit residents, Dwyer said the
representative told her it would provide community shopping.
The residents said if the District Council approves of WalMart’s plans, it will send a message
to them their opinions do not matter.
District Council members
could not comment on this story
while plans are still under approval.
“They are not listening to us,”
Woods said. “You are telling us we
don’t have your ear and we do not
have the power to sway you. That
our vote doesn’t count.”
“We deserve better,” Sharpe
continued to shout through his
megaphone. “This is an upscale residential neighborhood. We are not
going to stand for it. No Walmart
now, not ever.”
Local religious leaders weigh in on Middle East
From “Middle East” page 1
certainly not good for Palestinians
because they’re the ones in the
crossfire.”
Imam Ahmad Azzaari of the
Prince George’s Muslim Association, but speaking for himself and
not the organization, said the heavy
loss of Palestinian life reveals a onesided war.
Azzari criticized the Israeli Defense Forces for the rising death toll.
“You are professional soldiers,
you have a very advanced army with
technology, so why would you target
civilians like this?” he said. “War is
between two regular armies of two
countries. I don’t see a balance of
power between Israel and Hamas.
Irsa Sarkawi, of the University
of Maryland Muslim Students Association, said the crisis is about more
than religion. “It is a humanitarian
crisis,” Sarkawi said.
Local religious leaders say they
need to work together to foster
meaningful bonds between the Jewish and Muslim communities that
will translate into future peaceful relations.
“Engage in friendly and neighborly ways with our Muslim and
Arab counterparts here,” said Temple Oseh Shalom Rabbi Doug
Heifetz. “It’s a lot easier to make
peace between these groups here
than it is over there. The divide between our Muslim and Arab friends
here doesn’t seem all that significant. In Israel it very much is, but if
we create these strong networks and
friendships here, that will have a
very strong impact.”
Heifetz said the conflict should
not be seen as an inevitable clash between religions, but people from
both sides should work to find middle ground.
“Both traditions emphasize the
need for peace, so if you could emphasize that aspect of the religious
traditions, all the better,” Heifetz
said. “But the more you make it
seem like a conflict between ancient
religious civilizations, the worse off
we are, the more intractable and
harder to solve the conflict becomes.”
Edy Kaufman, a professor of
government and politics at the University of Maryland said he thinks
local religious groups can make a
difference by working together.
“This is a time for them either
to work together as Arabs and Jews
or through interfaith to try to do
whatever they can to export the idea
of coexistence back to the holy
land,” Kaufman said.
Weissman said finding a peaceful ending would require the sides to
give up on their goals of victory.
“Hamas and Israel both have to
acknowledge that ending it and be-
ing dissatisfied with the ending is
better than continuing it,” he said,
“which means somebody’s going to
have to put a lot of pressure on both
of them.”
U.S. Secretary of State John
Kerry has made multiple trips to the
region in order to try and broker a
ceasefire. Sarkawi said she does not
agree with U.S. support for Israel.
“The U.S. involvement in the
region is hurting more than helping
the peace effort,” Sarkawi said. “A
large amount of our tax money is going into supplying Israel with arms
and weapons. The fact that these
weapons are being actively used
against the Palestinian people, who
have extremely limited access to resources and are struggling with basic
infrastructure, is abhorrent.”
Kerry announced a 72-hour
ceasefire Thursday to aid humanitarian efforts and foster peace negotiations. Kaufman, who teaches a sum-
mer course titled Conflict Resolution—The Israeli/Palestinian Experiment, said he supports Kerry’s recent actions.
“I admire his commitment,”
Kaufman said. “Most of what he has
done was generally and sincerely
committed to a peace that would be
beneficial to both sides. If there's
been criticism, it has been blown out
of proportion. I think his motives are
pragmatic and noble.”
The University of Maryland
chapter of the United Muslim Relief
has raised more than $30,000 at a
benefit for displaced Palestinian and
Syrian refugees, Sarwaki said.
Weissman said Temple Solel
has an Israel Committee, which focuses on teaching and celebrating
the Jewish state, and also makes
contributions, although he said contributions are relatively “insignificant” due to synagogue’s small congregation.

STATE NEWS
Gambling revenue only 2 percent of state general fund budget
By Lejla Sarcevic
Capital News Service
Players spend more than $1.5
billion a year on Maryland lottery
tickets and get about $1 billion back
in winnings — on average, a 50cent return for every dollar they
spend.
Here’s where the money they
lose goes:
- $20 million to pay off the Orioles and Ravens stadiums in Baltimore. Lottery revenue covers the
debt service on Camden Yards, built
for $205 million and opened in
1992 and M&T Bank Stadium, built
for $229 million and opened six
years after Camden Yards in 1998.
Camden Yards is set to be paid off in
December 2019 and M&T Bank
Stadium in March of 2026.
- Starting this year, the state
will spend an additional $20 million
a year to finance a $1 billion Baltimore school construction program.
The project will see 30 to 35 renovation and replacement projects
across Baltimore with construction
starting late next year and expected
to take 6 to 7 years.
- Over $100 million to lottery
retailers as sales commissions.
- About $500 million to the budget’s general fund, which pays for
government operations and programs.
State officials say that lottery revenues
are vital for the state’s economic
health and are the fourth-largest
source of general revenue money, after
income, corporate, and sales taxes.
Even so, lottery revenues account for
only 2 percent of the general fund.
But the state has come to count
on that 2 percent to help meet its legal obligation to balance the budget
each year, officials say.
“You could easily say that we’re
supporting education, or you could
proportion it however you like,” said
Warren Deschenaux, director of policy analysis for the Department of
Legislative Services. “But if we took
the lottery out, we couldn’t afford
what we provide now.”
Lower income players driving up lottery sales
By Lejla Sarcevic, Ethan Barton and Lauren McLendon
Capital News Service
BALTIMORE– Boarded-up
homes, crumbling store fronts and
police cameras with blue lights line
the streets of Park Heights. It’s in
one of Baltimore’s poorest ZIP
codes, where the median household
income is about $35,000.
Yet people spent $34 million
on lottery tickets here in calendar
year 2012 — more than any other
ZIP code in the state, a Capital
News Service analysis found.
Evert Chapman, a truck driver
from Park Heights, said he’s not
surprised.
“We play to make some extra
money,” said Chapman, 34, as he
jotted down numbers on the back of
a Keno ticket inside Hoffman’s
Liquors on Park Heights Avenue. “I
want some extra money. We all do.”
The Maryland Lottery has become the fourth largest source of
revenue for the state, contributing
$545 million last fiscal year, according to the lottery agency’s
comprehensive annual financial report.
But a Capital News Service
analysis found that lower-income
ZIP codes contributed a disproportionate share. The analysis also
found more than a third of the revenue came from Prince George’s
County and Baltimore City. Baltimore City led the state in average
dollars spent on lottery tickets per
adult, followed by Charles County
and Prince George’s County.
Lottery officials said they do
not know the reasons for the disproportionate spending from those
communities.
“It’s not something we analyze
or look at,” Jackie Vincent, the director of gaming research and chief
of staff at the gaming agency, said.
Agency officials say that their
job is to raise revenue for the state,
but they don’t set policy. “That’s
sort of where we struggle, too.
We’re a state agency and a business,” Vincent said.
When told about the CNS findings, Gov. Martin O’Malley and
Maryland Senate President Thomas
V. “Mike” Miller declined to comment through their spokespersons.
House Speaker Michael E. Busch
did not respond to interview requests. (Editor’s note: This story
was sent out June 19.)
No surprise who spends on the
lottery
However, the findings are not a
secret to Maryland officials: A 2011
state-funded study found that lowincome residents, African-Americans and people with lower levels
of education are more likely to
gamble weekly on lottery games
and in casinos than other Marylanders.
The study was commissioned
by the Department of Health and
Mental Hygiene and was required
under the law that allowed casinos
to open in Maryland.
The state legalized casino
gambling in 2008. Four casinos
have opened, generating $608 million in state revenue in fiscal 2013,
with two more scheduled to open in
Baltimore and Prince George’s
County. Combined with lottery
sales, gambling now contributes
more than $1 billion annually to the
state.
Vincent said that an agency
program — though not directed
specifically at low-income residents — allows problem gamblers
to sign up for a two-year or lifetime
ban on playing the lottery. They are
blocked from cashing winning tickets when they enter their Social Security numbers to collect.
As of March, she said, 41 people had signed up.
State Sen. Lisa Gladden, DBaltimore, who represents Park
Heights, said that she is a lottery
player and, while she might like
people to spend their money differently, it’s not up to the legislature to
decide for them.
She added the state wouldn’t
need the lottery if lawmakers would
raise taxes enough to pay for state
services.
“It’s a poor trade and we
shouldn’t do it that way, but we
do,” she said.
The state sends about $20 million a year from lottery revenue
back to Baltimore to pay off bonds
on the Orioles’ $205 million ballpark and the Ravens’ $229 million
football stadium, both built in the
1990s. Beginning this year, $20
million a year in lottery money also
will help pay for a Baltimore public
school construction program.
Gladden said that lottery money should benefit the communities
that contribute the most revenue.
“If we have to pay for it, we
ought to get something back,” she
said.
“Pleasant way” to pay taxes
The state entered the lottery
business in 1973, after voters approved a constitutional amendment. In the debate over gambling
that preceded the vote, Del. Joseph
Sachs, an Anne Arundel County
Democrat, called it a “pleasant way
for people to pay taxes.”
But Sen. Margaret Schweinhaut, a Montgomery County Democrat, warned that “it’s the poor person who will be supporting the lottery.”
Four decades after her prediction, CNS examined lottery sales
data to see if she was right.
The news service filed a public
records request to obtain sales data
for calendar year 2012, the most recent full year available at the time.
Players spent $1.69 billion on
lottery tickets in 2012, the data
show. The state paid about $943
million of that in claims.
CNS broke down the gross
sales revenue by county and by ZIP
code. Using census data, the ZIP
codes were ranked by median
household income and then evenly
divided by population into five income groups, or quintiles. Each
quintile represented 20 percent of
the population.
A clear trend emerged: The
lower the income group, the higher
the lottery sales.
The largest share came from
ZIP codes in the lowest fifth, such
as 21215 which includes Park
Heights. They represented 20 percent of the population but contributed 27 percent of the total lottery ticket sales revenue.
The second fifth — ZIP codes
still below the state’s median
household income of $70,000 —
accounted for 25 percent of sales.
ZIP codes in the third and
fourth quintiles generated 19 and
17 percent, respectively. The smallest share of sales, 12 percent, came
from the top fifth of ZIP codes, with
median household incomes of over
$100,000.
The analysis reflects where
tickets are sold, because information on where players live is not
available.
The 2011 state-funded study
surveyed nearly 6,000 residents on
their gambling habits. The study
found that the very poor gamble
more frequently than others. Those
with incomes less than $15,000 are
nearly 50 percent more likely to
gamble on a weekly basis than
those with incomes greater than
$35,000, on average.
A study of fiscal year 2005
Maryland lottery sales data by researchers at the University of
Maryland Baltimore County also
found a disproportionate share
came from socio-economically disadvantaged groups.

TRAVEL
Ten stops to make in New York’s financial district
Travel Tales
By
Erin Klema
NEW YORK — At the southern tip of Manhattan lies the Financial District — a New York City
neighborhood off the tourist-beaten
path.
It’s known for Wall Street
bankers and stock market exchanges, but this quiet area of the
Big Apple is full of famous sights
and historic districts that any sightseer, history buff or foodie should
add to their New York City trip itinerary.
South Street Seaport
At Fulton and Water streets,
you’ll find a historic district that has
been restored and revamped as a
shopping center. The seaport has
name brand retailers, restaurants, ice
cream shops and stunning views of
the Brooklyn Bridge. A redevelopment at Pier 17 is slated to open in
2016, adding more eateries, alfresco
bars and New York City’s first luxury movie theater.
Brooklyn Bridge
Spanning the East River from
Lower Manhattan to Brooklyn, the
Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest
suspension bridges in the United
States and a national landmark.
Pedestrians and cyclists can cross
between the two boroughs via the
promenade.
Wall Street & New York
Stock Exchange
You can’t tour the inside, but
the New York Stock Exchange’s
neoclassical exterior includes six
Corinthian columns and a sculpture
titled “Integrity Protecting the
Works of Man.”
Ground Zero & National
9/11 Memorial and Museum
The site of the Sept. 11, 2001,
terrorist attack on the World Trade
Center features two 30-foot waterfalls, where the Twin Towers once
stood. To view the memorial, you
can make a reservation on
911memorial.org for a small processing fee, or you can attempt to get
a same-day pass for free at 20 Vesey
Street. To visit the museum, which
opened in May, you can purchase
tickets at 911memorial.org.

Staten Island Ferry
Views of the Financial District’s skyscraper-filled skyline and
the Statue of Liberty are entirely free
on this 5.2-mile ferry ride between
Whitehall Terminal in Lower Manhattan and St. George Terminal on
Staten Island. It’s the cheapest way
to see Lady Liberty!
Trinity Church

Battery Park
Located along the waterfront,
Battery Park is a grassy respite from
the concrete jungle. Castle Clinton,
originally erected during the War of
1812, was an immigration center prior to Ellis Island. Today, it’s where
you’ll buy your ferry tickets to Liberty and Ellis islands. From Battery
Park, you can see Lady Liberty, Ellis
Island, Jersey City, Governor’s Island and Staten Island on a clear day.
Statue of Liberty
If you’d like a closer look at this
iconic New York landmark, take Statue Cruises to Liberty Island. Make
reservations at statuecruises.com to
go up to Lady Liberty’s crown and to
visit the museum. It’s only a $3 differential between the ferry ticket with
access only to the island’s grounds
($18) and the reservation to go into
the crown ($21).
Ellis Island
Ellis Island visitors take the
same ferry as Statue of Liberty visitors, so it’s a natural choice to add to
your itinerary. For any American
whose ancestors were European immigrants, Ellis Island is a must-visit
attraction to learn what they experienced in order to find a more prosperous life. Set aside two hours to
explore the informative exhibits using the audio tour, and then check
the wall outside for names of your
relatives who came to America
through Ellis Island.
Stone Street Historic District
Tucked between skyscrapers,
this cobblestone street is filled with
umbrella-covered tables during the
summer months. It’s the perfect spot
for a weekend brunch or a round of
beers on a Friday night. Try the savory Eggs Benedict at Stone Street

Maryland basketball drops Reed after arrest
By Brandy L. Simms
Sentinel Sports
The University of Maryland
men’s basketball program has parted ways with highly-touted freshman center Trayvon Reed, the
school announced Friday in a news
release.
According to news reports,
Reed was arrested in College Park
and charged with four counts including second-degree assault of a
police officer.
“Trayvon failed to meet the
standards that are required by the
University of Maryland athletics
department,” Maryland head coach
Mark Turgeon said in a statement.
Reed, a 7-footer who verbally
committed to Maryland last August, was the centerpiece of Maryland’s top-10 recruiting class.
The 7-foot-1 Georgia native
was ranked among the nation’s elite
at his position and was a four-star
recruit according to Scout.com and
Rivals.
He spent last season playing at
Life Center Academy in New Jersey but suffered an ankle injury that
kept him out of the Capital Classic
High School All-Star Game in
April. Although Reed was in attendance, he watched the U.S. AllStars beat the Capital All-Stars,
139-134, behind standout performances from fellow Maryland recruits Jared Nickens and Melo
Trimble.
As Maryland enters the Big
Ten Conference, Reed was expected to provide depth in the post
along with 6-foot-10 sophomore
Damonte Dodd and 7-foot freshman Michael Cekovsky.
“I regret that I was unable to
meet the responsibilities that were
expected of me from Coach Turgeon and the University of Maryland,” said Reed.
He has a court date scheduled
for Sept. 15 in Hyattsville and becomes the latest Maryland studentathlete to leave the men’s basketball program since the end of last
season.
“We want to express our gratitude and appreciation to Coach
Turgeon and the Maryland basketball program,” said Daniel
Moore, Reed’s stepfather. “We regret that Trayvon has to leave
Maryland and miss out on this
great opportunity.”

DeMatha football player chooses Penn State
By Brandy L. Simms
Sentinel Sports
The Penn State football program has landed a verbal pledge
from one of the nation’s top players
in the class of 2016.
DeMatha rising junior defensive end Shane Simmons last week
verbally committed to play college
football for the Nittany Lions during
an ESPN.com webcast.
Simmons chose Penn State over
offers from Alabama, Florida State,
Maryland and Ohio State among others. During the webcast, Simmons
picked up a Penn State baseball cap
and placed it on his head. The table
also included hats from the four other
aforementioned schools.
“The Hat fits! Shane Simmons

Simmons, rated a five-star

he tweeted.

Bowie State looking for seniors to step up
By Dan Kucin Jr.
Sentinel Sports
Bowie State University is predicted to finish 6th in the CIAA
Conference, and 3rd in the Northern
Division based on the 2014 conference preseason poll.
Bowie State football Head
Coach Damon Wilson enters his 6th
consecutive season at the helm for
the Bulldogs. Wilson will have 42
lettermen at his disposal including
14 returning starters.
Despite finishing the 2013
campaign with only a (.500) record
at 5-5, they won three matches in di-
visional play and hope that senior
leadership will take over in order for
the Bulldogs to get over the hump in
2014.
Bowie State’s senior class is
looking to make a huge impact in
order to win their division this year.
Senior's Khari Lee, Keith
Brown (Temple Hills), Mario DiazAviles, and Anthony McDaniel
(Fort Washington) were recently selected to the 2014 All-CIAA Preseason Team. Lee led his team in receiving among all tight ends with
352 yards, and 34 receptions.
Suitland High School alumnus
Keith Brown rushed for over 1,000
yards last year with 16 touchdowns,
and averaged 113 yards per game.
Former Wise High School
standout defensive lineman Anthony McDaniel is also primed to have
a strong showing next season. McDaniel averaged more than four
tackles a game—amassing 44 total
tackles—had one interception, one
forced fumble, and a fumble recovery as well.
Last but not least, Mario DiazAviles was a clutch kicker for
Bowie State, connecting on six field
goals with a 100 percent accuracy

Comcast Center now the XFINITY Center
By Brandy L. Simms
Sentinel Sports
The on-campus College Park
arena formerly known as the Comcast Center has been renamed.
The University of Maryland
athletics department last week announced that the venue will be
named the XFINITY Center, effective immediately. The renaming reflects the Xfinity brand’s strong
awareness and resonance with consumers.
“We are excited to place the
name Xfinity on this beloved University of Maryland sports venue,”
said Tom Coughlin, senior vice president of Comcast’s Beltway region.
“Our Xfinity brand represents our
commitment to delivering an unparalleled, innovative entertainment ex-
perience to local consumers, and our
partnership with the University of
Maryland athletics department underscores this promise.”
The XFINITY Center is home
to the University of Maryland men’s
and women’s basketball along with
the gymnastics, volleyball and
wrestling teams. The venue also
houses the athletic department’s administrative offices and student-athlete Academic Support and Career
Development Unit.
Completed in 2002, the main
arena seats up to 17,950 for basketball, and is the site of numerous
campus events, concerts, graduations, and other events including the
MPSSAA boys basketball championships.
The renaming to XFINITY
Center is in accordance with the
original partnership agreement between Comcast and the University
of Maryland that allows Comcast –
with mutual agreement – to utilize
opportunities to extend its brand.
The renaming efforts are taking
place at no cost to the University of
Maryland or Terrapin Athletics and
are expected to be completed by
mid-August.
“We have enjoyed a longstanding and successful partnership with
Comcast for more than a decade, and
are excited to extend this relationship with the renaming of the XFINITY Center,” said Maryland director
of athletics Kevin Anderson. “It is
our goal to continue to provide our
fans with a special gameday experience, and we look forward to unveiling new amenities at the XFINITY
Center in the near future.”

DeMatha recruit chooses Penn State
By Brandy L. Simms
Sentinel Sports
The Penn State men’s basketball program has landed a verbal
commitment from DeMatha product Joe Hampton.
Hampton, who recently announced he was leaving the Hyattsville private school for Oak Hill
Academy, said he chose the Big Ten
Conference school because he felt
comfortable with the Nittany Lions’
coaching staff.
“It’s like a family you know,”
said Hampton. “I’m very familiar
with the coaching staff and I love
the way [Penn State head coach
Patrick] Chambers coaches and the
basketball team is so close they are
like brothers.”
A 6-foot-7 forward, Hampton
averaged 11.9 points per game last
season and helped lead DeMatha to
a 29-6 record. He chose Penn State
over offers from Xavier, DePaul and
Rhode Island.
Hampton will join former Paul
VI guard and recent Penn State
commit Josh Reaves at Oak Hill
next season. Reaves announced his
transfer to Oak Hill in June.
Known for its high-profile basketball program, Oak Hill has produced scores of NBA and Division I
players including Carmelo Anthony,
Kevin Durant, Ty Lawson and
Michael Beasley among others.
Hampton is the latest area
product that has transferred from a
Washington Catholic Athletic Conference school to Oak Hill. In previous years, other WCAC standouts
have left the conference for the
boarding school in rural Virginia.
Besides Hampton, the list of
DeMatha players transferring to
Oak Hill includes Billy Edelin, Jeff
Allen, Bryon Allen and Quinn
Cook.
A Rivals.com four-star
prospect, Hampton is Penn State’s
first pledge from the 2016 recruiting
class.

More Lawsuits For School Board
By Kelsey Sutton
Special to the Sentinel
GREENBELT — The Prince
George’s County Board of Education is facing a slew of lawsuits from
current and former employees
claiming they faced discrimination
from a high school principal.
Last week, a jury for the United
States District Court for the District
of Maryland determined Jon Everhart, a former literature teacher at
Largo High School was fired in re-
taliation for reporting discriminatory
treatment. Judge Peter Messitte
ruled another discrimination and retaliation case can move forward in
Jan. 2015. The jury ruled he should
receive nearly $500,000 in total
compensation.
Dr. Ruth Johnson, a guidance
counselor for Prince George’s County Public Schools, is seeking $5 million in damages, claiming Largo
High School Principal Angelique
Simpson-Marcus retaliated against
her for complaints about discrimina-
tory practices
Johnson claims she heard
Simpson-Marcus, who is AfricanAmerican, call two African-American secretaries derogatory names
like “chicken head,” “hood rat” and
“ghetto” in the presence of students,
teachers and other staff members,
according to court documents.
Johnson also claims students
approached her with reports of
Simpson-Marcus harassing Everhart, who is white, in front of his
class.
In Johnson’s lawsuit, she
claims she contacted former Superintendant Dr. William Hite in regards to the matter, but claims Hite
refused to accept written documentation of the verbal abuses, allegedly
saying “(I) might have to act” if he
accepted the paperwork.
Johnson claims the school system failed to conduct an investigation or take prompt corrective action, as required by law.
Johnson’s case also involves
claims of retaliation for going to the
superintendent. Johnson, who has a
physical disability, claims she was
moved to an office far away from
student records and a bathroom,
which made it difficult for her to perform her job. Later, the school system transferred her to another
school.
According to Title VI of the
Civil Rights Act of 1964, when entities benefit from federal funds, the

Hyattsville residents want to save their saucer
By Raecine Williams
Special to the Sentinel
HYATTSVILLE — The County Council’s decision to build a new
$16.1 million Hyattsville Branch Library instead of renovating the existing library is being met with some
opposition.
A group of residents from Hyattsville and the surrounding area
called Save Our Saucer do not want
the county to tear down the building,
instead favoring a plan to renovate
and modernize the existing structure.
The Prince George’s County
Memorial Library System announced the architects responsible
for the design of the new library and
recently held one in a series of community meetings designed to collect
feedback for the new structure,
where Save Our Saucer members,
whose name comes from a saucerlike structure at the front of the old
library, voiced their protestations.
“The concerns are based on the
historical importance of the building,” said T. Carter Ross, a member
of Save Our Saucer. “It was the first
building in the modern Prince
George’s Library system.”
Ross and other members of
Save the Saucer are regular librarygoers and long time patrons. Ross,
who does not want to see the destruction of the old building, said his
children love the library and have
been going there before they could
even read.
“There seems to be a misunderstanding of what can be done with
renovations,” Ross said. “It’s not
just putting on paint and maybe fixing a pipe, it truly could be a complete evaluation and reorganization
of the space with an eye on preserving and maintaining some of the integrity of the old structure.”
Ross said he would like to see a
fair look at the actual costs of a proper restoration and to see what the environmental impact would be for a

new structure.
“You’re going to tear it down,
you have to dispose of everything,
and then you’re building something
entirely new,” Ross said. “We don’t
really feel like the library system or
the county has really made the case
that what they’re doing is the wisest
use of tax dollars and the most environmentally sensitive approach.”

Police arrest man for killing wife and mother-in-law
By Jim Davis
Special to the Sentinel
OXON HILL – Prince
George's County homicide detectives arrested and charged a man
Tuesday night after a double homicide Saturday morning.
Malcom Paul Thomas, 54, is
charged with two counts of first degree murder after he admitted involvement in the deaths of 83-yearold Eunice Brooks and 54-year-old
Janice Marshall-Thomas.
The victims, a mother and
daughter, lived with Thomas in
their home on the 5500 block of
Chloe Drive in Oxon Hill, police
said. Thomas and MarshallThomas were married, according to
police.
On Saturday, patrol units from
Prince George's County Police De-
partment Oxon Hill District responded to the 5500 block of Chloe
Drive in Oxon Hill after receiving a
phone call from an unknown person
who said police needed to check on
the welfare of the two women who
lived in the house.
When officers arrived at the
house, they discovered the bodies
of the two women, said Harry
Bond, a media relations officer for
the Prince George’s County Police
Department.
They were both pronounced
dead on the scene by Prince
George's County Fire Department
paramedics.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner identified the two
victims several days later.
Police say detectives quickly
determined Thomas as a suspect and
obtained a warrant for his arrest.
Officers from the Sussex
County Sheriff’s Office apprehended Thomas in Wakefield, Virginia.
Thomas is awaiting extradition
back to Prince George’s County in
the ongoing investigation.
“It can take a few days, a few
weeks or a month to before Thomas
is returned back to the county,” said
John Erzen, a spokesman for the
State’s Attorney’s Office.
Police searching for suspect
in Lanham murder
Just eight hours before the
double homicide in Oxon Hill, police began the search for a person
who shot and killed a man late Friday night.
Shayne Francis Snipes, 26,
died after being shot several times
in the parking lot of Chelsea Woods
Apartment Complex Aug. 1, ac-
cording to police.
Just after 11 p.m., police and
fire units responded to a call from
Chelsea Woods Apartment Complex in the 8600 block of Greenbelt
Road reporting a shooting.
Upon arrival, officials found
Snipes, from Lanham, suffering
from multiple gunshot wounds to
his body.
Responders transported Snipes
to a local trauma center, where he
died a few hours later from his
wounds, Bond said.
According to court records,
Snipes had been released from jail
hours earlier.
Homicide detectives do not believe this was a random shooting,
according to a press release from
Prince George's County Police Department.
Court records indicate Snipes

has a history of arrests, including
first and second degree assault, a
number of hand gun charges, resisting arrest, theft and assaulting law
enforcement. In July, Snipes was arrested three times for drug charges.
Detectives are working to establish a motive and identify the
suspect or suspects in this case. As
of Tuesday, police had not made
any arrests and had no further updates on the progress of the case.
Police urge anyone with information on either case to call the
Prince George’s County Police Department’s Homicide Unit at 301772-4925. Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime
Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS.

School board deals with more discrimination lawsuits

against discriminatory practices.
Employees are also protected from
retaliation for reporting discriminatory behavior.
The Board of Education argued
it did not receive funds during Johnson’s employment at Largo High
School, so it should not be held accountable under the Civil Rights
Act. In late July Judge Messitte did
not accept the Board’s motion to
dismiss, so a jury trial will proceed
next year.
Tracy Allison, a 38-year-old
secretary for Prince George’s County Public Schools, is pursuing another case involving Simpson-Marcus. She claims she was a victim of
racially-charged harassment while
working for Simpson-Marcus, according to court documents.
The three cases involving
Everhart, Johnson and Allison are
related and were originally filed together before moving to separate
cases.
The Prince George’s County
Board of Education will not comment on ongoing legal matters, said
Max Pugh, public information officer for the Board of Education.
Simpson-Marcus remains as
the principal at Largo High School.
Hyattsville’s saucer receives community support
From “Saucer” page 1
He said the old building has
problems due to neglect over time,
but that none of its flaws were fatal.
The county has had a library
renovation in its improvement plan
since 1988, but the project was delayed time and time again. The reason for the delays varied and included other construction projects, like
South Bowie and some other projects phased into the capital projects
budget before Hyattsville, said
Thomas Himler, the Deputy Chief
Administrative Officer for Budget,
Finance, and Administration.
There were also debates and
disagreement about the new library
plans, which delayed its progress,
said Catherine Hollerbach, West
Area Manager for the Prince
George’s County Memorial Library
System.
“As far as what they’re doing
for library construction, they’re doing a fantastic job,” Hollerbach said.
“The number of new libraries and
renovations we’re doing in this system is wonderful. We have so many
projects going on right now.”
Hollberbach pointed to the new
Fairmount Heights branch, the reopening of the Beltsville branch, the
New Carrollton branch breaking
ground next March and the construction of the new Laurel branch
library as some of the county li-
brary’s successes.
The New Carrollton branch
renovations are expected to cost
nearly $9 million, and the Laurel Library replacement project has a budget of around $22.5 million, according to the 2015 Capital Improvement Plan.
In total, the Capital Improvement Plan allocated more than $123
million to library projects in total.
Hollerbach said there were
many reasons the county and Library System favored a new construction, and despite the vocal Save
Our Saucers group interested in the
building’s preservation, the majority of residents are in favor of a new
building.
Hollerbach said a new building
would be built to silver LEED standards, using recycled materials and
installing a green roof, to appeal to
environmental concerns.
LEED certification is recognized worldwide as the premier
mark of achievement for green
buildings. Points are used to determine the level of certification building receives and span 4 levels –
LEED certified, silver, gold and
platinum.
If the project moves forward,
the architects would conduct a feasibility study to compare the old
building to what the new building
will have, Hollerbach said.
Ross criticized the LEED stan-
dards plan, because while the new
library will be built to LEED silver
standards, the city has not announced if it would seek LEED certification.
“To say your building meets
the standards is one thing, but to
certify it is a different thing,” he
said. “That’s great PR to say, we’re
going to build it LEED-like.”
He said LEED has a program
for building restoration and renovations, so LEED ratings could still be
achieved with renovation and
restoration.
As for Ross’ 10-year-old
daughter, her main concern is
whether the new library will have
more books, he said.
“Four Cities” officials wary of FBI headquarters battle
By Yevgeniy Trapeznikov
Special to the Sentinel
BERWYN HEIGHTS — City
officials from Greenbelt, Berwyn
Heights, College Park and New
Carrollton are planning their next
move to make the GSA consider
Greenbelt as the new location of the
FBI headquarters.
The General Services Administration announced last week the city
was one of three in the running for
the location of a new FBI headquarters, which means the city has to
fight against Landover and Springfield, Va., to make the best case for
their location.
At a Monday meeting, a quarterly deliberative session representing neighboring municipalities,
Greenbelt Mayor Emmett Jordan
emphasized the importance of the
four cities working together to ensure the FBI would move to Greenbelt because all four cities would
reap the benefits of the relocation.
If the city makes the cut, the
FBI would occupy a section of the
Greenbelt Metro Station and could
be a critical move in development
and economic opportunities in the
area.
Relocating the FBI to Greenbelt would allow employees to take
advantage of the amenities in the
four cities, as well as give them access to the Amtrak train and Metro
trains and give them close access to
the University of Maryland, among
other things, Jordan said.
If the GSA chose Landover, the
new FBI headquarters would occupy the former Landover Mall, locat-
ed near the intersection of I-495 and
MD-202, and if Springfield wins the
bid, the FBI will relocate to the
GSA Franconia Warehouse Complex near the intersection of I-95
and Franconia Road.
“I was taken aback by Landover’s inclusion in the list,” said
Berwyn Heights Mayor Cheye Calvo.
Bill Gardiner, assistant city
manager for the city of College
Park, suggested the GSA had added
a second city in Maryland in order
to get a better deal.
“If I were GSA and if I thought
Greenbelt was the best site, I’d also
include Landover to make Greenbelt negotiate against each other to
get a cheaper price,” Gardiner said.
Dannielle Glaros, chief of staff
for County Councilman Eric Olson,
said the county was excited about
having two sites running because it
increased Prince George’s County’s
odds, but said County Executive
Rushern Baker III and the county
team ultimately believed Greenbelt
provided the best site.
Greenbelt Councilman Edward
Putens said he feared competition
between the two county sites could
benefit Springfield more than it
would help Maryland’s chances.
“What happens when you have
two candidates from one state?
They start fighting each other,” he
said. “And we have already started.”
Glaros said Lerner Enterprises,
a real estate firm of the Washington
Nationals owner Theodore Lerner
that owns the Landover property,
was powerful, which could be a
blow to the Greenbelt site’s
chances.
“That entity knows a lot of people, has a lot of access and opens a
lot of doors,” Glaros said.
Greenbelt Mayor Pro Tem Judith Davis said the uncertainty increased her concerns about the possibility of Greenbelt getting shorthanded by the GSA.
“The fact that the city is located
in the north of the Prince George’s
may eventually make federal officials think that we do not need much
development associated with the relocation,” Davis said.
Calvo said the biggest issue for
him was securing support of U.S.
Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.),
chairwoman of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, who, he
said, initially signed for Greenbelt
and then seemed to back off.

Construction begins on Westphalia
Community Center
By Savannah Tanbusch
Special to the Sentinel
UPPER MARLBORO – Delegates and community members broke
ground Saturday on the Westphalia
Community Center scheduled to
open in early 2016.
The Prince George’s County
Planning Board partnered with the
Department of Parks and Recreation
staff to host the groundbreaking ceremony and designate an area for the
new community center.
The 16,223 square foot community center is a $5.8 million project
located on 8900 Westphalia Rd. The
area currently holds tennis courts and
a small playground.
According to Prince George’s
County Planning Board Chairman
Elizabeth Hewlett, the plans for the
Westphalia Community Center have
been in the planning board’s budget
for seven years and are just now coming to fruition.
“Sometimes [people] don’t un-
derstand when an item gets put into
the budget, it takes a while for it to become acted upon,” Hewlett said.
“Everyone naturally gets anxious.”
Although the process has taken a
while, Hewlett said, the community
has remained supportive as the planning board and the Department of
Parks and Recreation worked collaboratively to make the community
center a reality.
“The community has been outstanding,” Hewlett said. “They’re excited to see something come together
that represents their visions.”
“The community is ecstatic
[about the new community center],”
said Angela Angel, who is running
unopposed as delegate for District 25.
“The delays and issues have only
helped galvanize people and helped
us move forward to a goal.”
Redell Duke, from the Westphalia Civic Association, said he is
elated to see the groundbreaking finally coming into view after more
than forty years of advocating for it.
“A lot of the folks who aspired to
have this community center built
have died,” said Duke. “We still want
to make this happen in their memory
and for the future generation. I have
no regrets of the time spent, I’m just
thankful it has come.”
Duke also said he was proud of
the community effort put into working with the delegates and Prince
George’s County representatives to
make the community center possible.
“It’s not a single community effort,” said Duke. “The entire community within Westphalia has been extremely supportive. They’ve been
very excited and very, very enthusiastic.”
The community center will feature a gymnasium, a large fitness
room, a multi-purpose room and
pantry, a teen lounge, a concourse
area, storage space and staff offices,
according to the pamphlet. The old
play equipment will be replaced with
new play equipment and the parking
lot will be expanded.
On the web. All the time.

Zumba, face painting and more with Mel Franklin
By Savannah Tanbusch
Special to the Sentinel
UPPER MARLBORO – Despite forecasts for bad weather, District 9 Prince George’s County
Councilman Mel Franklin’s 4th annual Family Fun Day continued
Sunday without any major hurdles.
More than 1,000 people attended the event and there were more
than 100 businesses and booths set
up on the Show Place Arena
grounds, Franklin said.
“We’ve had the biggest business turnout yet,” said Franklin. “It
really brings the community together and lets people look at the local
businesses that we’ve been trying to
grow.”
Several elected officials, including Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown
and District 9 Board of Education
member Sonya Williams, spoke at
the event encouraging people to vote
on Nov. 4. Brown is the Democratic
nominee for governor, while
Williams seeks reelection.
“Prince George’s County has an
opportunity to move this election in
the right direction,” Brown said. “It
has an opportunity to elect people
who are going to partner with our
county executive and our county
council, to partner with our delegation and to make sure that Prince
George’s County has a strong part-
ner in Annapolis.”
Senator Doug Peters (D-23)
said he looks forward to seeing Democrats “sweep the election” on
Nov. 4.
“[Franklin] came and helped
every single one of us [Democrats],”
said Peters. “He didn’t have to do
that. He could’ve sat back in the
county chair […], but he reached
out, he helped us campaign and he
helped us get across that finish line.”
The festival focused on more
than politics. Several performers entertained visitors throughout the day,
and there were booths offering free
food and free face painting spread
out across the grounds.
Eniyah Vaughn, 7, said getting
her face painted was her favorite part
of the event.
“I also really liked all the candy
things [they were giving away],”
said Eniyah, showing off her Hello
Kitty face paint.
Larry Johnson and Daniel Hall,
from Novacayne Music, were
among the performers at the festival.
Novacayne Music entertained the
crowd twice, singing songs about
the community and bringing people
together. According to Hall and
Johnson, their church asked them to
perform.
“It was amazing [to perform],”
said Johnson. “We’re all about giving back to the community through
the gift of music.”
“I was trying to get the electric
slide going on [our first song],” said
Hall, laughing.
Deanna Stealth, a 19-year-old
rapper who has performed twice on
Black Entertainment Television,
also took the stage.
“Mel Franklin has always been
very supportive of me and what I
do,” Stealth said. “I think the audience response was very good, too.”
Stealth started her own business
at 13-years-old, My Sweet Tooth,
LLC, which she said focused on
meeting the desires of adults and
children with dietary restrictions.
Stealth said she approved of the
food available at the event.
“The turkey burgers were
great,” said Stealth. “Turkey burgers
are always so dry, but somehow
these weren’t and the seasoning was
perfect.”
Wanda Thompson, a Zumba instructor, said she received a call two
days before the event because another act had cancelled. Thompson and
her Zumba class danced on stage to
hit songs such as “Turn Down for
What” and “The Bikers Shuffle.”
Thompson said she and her
class often participate in cancer drives and volunteer work for the community.
“[Franklin] is getting my vote,”
Thompson said. “I think he’s doing a

community involved.”

matters. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) offers a creative, positive alterna-
tive tot the cost and uncertainty of litigation for individuals, businesses, organizations and families. As a former judge, she can assist disputing parties to achieve
reasonable results. ADR offers a way for her to help people discover common interests which can allow them to shape their own resolution to their disputes.
As a mediator, she acts as a private neutral. She emphasizes that mediation can be effective wether the parties desire to address differences in an
ongoing relationship, or to reach a mutually agreeable solution to a single
dispute, without trial. She uses mediation, arbitration and settlement conferences successfully for conflict involving personal injury (including auto
torts and premises liability), employment, workplace conflict, child access,
elder law, ethics, collections, contracts and other civil matters.

minutes. Persons desiring to speak may register in advance or fill out a registration card available at
the hearing.

THE PRINCE GEORGE’S SENTINEL
AUGUST 7, 2014
SPORTS
Maryland football looks to relish in underdog role
By Dan Kucin Jr.
Sentinel Sports
University of Maryland Head
Coach Randy Edsall recently spoke
with the media in Chicago about
the state of his team as a new member the Big Ten Conference. As he
looks forward to working with his
players in an upcoming preseason
camp, Edsall seems optimistic
about the Terrapins’ chances going
forward despite being the underdog.
Edsall will be working with a
young team, but it is a squad that
has one of the best playmakers in
the country—Stefon Diggs.
Despite missing most of the
2013-2014 campaign due to injury,
Diggs put up some impressive
numbers with the help of senior
starting quarterback C.J. Brown.
“C.J. Brown, our professional
student, who is back for his sixth
year, leader of our team as a quarterback, outstanding young man
from Pittsburgh who hopefully has
all the injuries behind him now,”
Edsall said. “He had a good year
last year, and we expect big things
out of him this year as we look forward to this season…Stefon Diggs,
our wide receiver, a junior wide receiver who has come back off his
injury, and ready to go this year and
fully recovered and really has done
a good job this offseason.”
Having two solid starters is a
good start, but Maryland will need
to rely on depth as well if it expects
to make waves in the Big Ten. In a
conference dominated by perennial
powerhouses such as Ohio State,
Michigan and Wisconsin, Edsall
understands the challenges that lie
ahead. Edsall said the biggest thing
his team has to focus on is what other teams are studying and what they
do on both sides of the ball.
“We're very thrilled to be a part
of the Big Ten Conference and
everything that it represents and
stands for,” said Edsall. “We know
we have a tremendous challenge
that's ahead of us this year as we enter the Big Ten, but one that we're
really looking forward to.”
The University of Maryland
will not have a cupcake schedule to
work with. They face an up-andcoming team in James Madison on
August 30, and will face Ohio State
at home on October 4. Maryland
will also face a former ACC foe
against West Virginia in their third
match-up of the season. Maryland
dominated the Mountaineers last
year 37-0 in a neutral site match at
M&T Bank Stadium.
“Well, I think it will be electric,” said Edsall when asked about
their upcoming schedule. “I think it
will be a sold-out crowd. It will be
something that I know our fans are
looking forward to. Ohio State is a
program with great tradition and
history and one that has done very,
very well…And it will be something that I think everybody that's in
attendance and everybody that gets
a chance to watch on TV wished
that they were there, because I think
it will be a ton of excitement, one
that I know we're looking forward
to as well as all the other games
we're going to play.”
Local boxer signs deal with Top Rank
By Brandy L. Simms
Sentinel Sports
Light welterweight boxer
Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed has
signed a promotional deal with Las
Vegas-based Top Rank.
Reed, who trains at Dream
Team Boxing Gym in Clinton, is
undefeated in ten professional
fights.
“I am delighted to sign with
Top Rank,” said Reed. “They’ve
been successful for a long time,
and have promoted the biggest
names in boxing from Muhammad
Ali to Manny Pacquiao. I am excited to have the same opportunities
as the legends that came before me.
Top Rank clearly has an understanding of how to market their
fighters and they know how to
build pay-per-view superstars.
Team Reed is looking forward to
having a long, successful relationship with one of the most prestigious promotional companies in
boxing.”
The Dream Team Boxing Gym
is owned and operated by Reed’s
father, trainer and manager,
Michael “Buck” Pinson.
“We wanted to join a company
that does a great job of moving
their fighters and Top Rank is
known for getting their fighters
world championship opportunities,” said Pinson. “Many of their
current fighters are world champions. We recently fought on one of
their shows. They treated us well
and were very professional.”
Reed enjoyed a stellar amateur
career, compiling an impressive
90-13 record and has been matched
competitively during his first ten
professional fights. In his most recent bout in June, Reed won a
unanimous decision over Alberto
Morales.
“I’m grateful to everyone that
has played a part in helping me
reach this level, but I’m just getting
started,” said Reed. “I’m looking
forward to representing the elite
class of fighters from the DMV and
the Beltway region.”

Senior quarterback C.J. Brown hopes Maryland makes a successful debut
in the Big 10 Conference.
Baysox pitcher hopes to end slump
By Dan Kucin Jr.
Sentinel Sports
Bowie Baysox starting pitcher
Tim Berry has been on a slide as of
late. He has dropped his last two
consecutive starts, and the Baysox
need him to produce in the latter part
of the regular season if they wish to
reach the postseason. Even though
Berry is considered to be Bowie's
top ace in the rotation, it wasn't an
easy journey for him to be put into
position that his is in now.
Berry joined the Orioles 40man roster after only being selected
as the 50th pick in the 2009 FirstYear Player Draft out of San Marcos
High School in California. The 2013
Arizona Fall League rising star is a
budding young prospect who was
chosen as a 2014 All-Star team selection earlier this year. Despite having his credentials, Berry has been
struggling to make adjustments to
his game after the All-Star break.
Berry has gone 5-7 this season
with an era of 3.71. These might not
seem like mind-blowing numbers,
but he has been a staple in the present rotation, and he has contributed
to Bowie's fifth-best pitching staff in
the Eastern League Division. In
Berry's last start against the Akron
Aeros, he struggled, surrendering
two earned runs, five hits, and three
walks in five innings pitched in a
shutout loss 4-0.
Consistency has been a bit of an
issue for Berry, but he is known for
being an aggressive strikeout pitcher. He is ranked as the eighth best
pitcher in the Eastern League and he
is closing in on 100 strikeouts for the
year. Coming into this season, Berry
was ranked by Baseball America as
the Orioles sixth-best prospect within the organization.
