Local Team Wins Big At Bowles Farm


Clements Brown Comes From Behind To Win Two Races
By Chris Stevens Staff Writer With the Fourth Annual St. Marys County National Lawnmower Race being held at Bowles Farm in Clements, local pride was on the line for several participants, including Clements native Jason Brown. Brown, a member of the Party Time Racing Team, came from behind in both S/P class races to pick up the win and competed very well in the B/P classes, earning the respect of perennial B/P champion Jayson Mikula. Jayson said that [Friday night] was the hardest hes had to race in a long time, said Francis Guy of Guy Brothers Marine in Clements, also a member of the Party Time team. He feels that Jason is a highcaliber racer in the B/P class. Thats something coming from a national champion. Racers from nine different See Lawnmower Races page B-2

Kawasaki Rider Continues Unbeaten Motocross Season At Budds Creek
By Chris Stevens Staff Writer BUDDS CREEK Unbeaten and virtually untested in 2008, James Stewart of Haines City, Fla. picked up his seventh straight win to open the AMA Motocross season, rolling to victory in both moto events in the Monster Energy Budds Creek Motocross Nationals Sunday afternoon. The finals saw an 18-lap race of endurance in which Stewart outlasted all contenders by an average margin of 42 seconds to win for the third time, continuing his undefeated season as the scene shifts to New York next week. Ive just been getting good starts, focusing on my own deal and riding like I do at home, Stewart said of his practice time during the week translating to the tracks on the weekends. The unusual set-up of the track racing backwards instead of forward combined with the unexpected length of the races (30 minutes plus two laps) made fatigue a factor, but Stewart who has yet to lose even one moto this season - didnt falter. He even joked two more laps and we couldve thrown up lights and See Stewart page B-2

Stewart
Continued from page B- called it a supercross race. With Stewart winning the overall championship at Budds Creek for the first time (becoming the first other than the retired Ricky Carmichael to do it in nine years), he continues to focus on the season one race at a time, not thinking too much about his sizzling start to the season. Ive never set perfection as my goal, he said. I just want to stay up, hit my lines, have fun and

well see what happens. Stewart (350 points) increased his overall lead in the standings over Kawasaki teammate Tim Ferry (245) to 105 points Sunday. Meanwhile Ferry, a 17-year veteran of the series, was engaged in an intriguing battle for the second-place spot on the podium with Andrew Short, who was a mere lad of nine years old when Ferry, of Largo, Fla., ran his first AMA race. I wanted to try to latch on to Timmy when he passed me, third-place finisher Short said of the final laps, but I didnt have the endurance.

Ferry was complimentary of the young challenger, noting Andrews tough to pass. For me, hes the hardest guy to get around. For Short (Smithville, Texas), just being on the podium for the second time after a rough start to the season was a plus, but he did believe that he could learn a handful of things from a veteran like Tim Ferry. Its hard to battle with the endurance Ferry has, Short said, but felt that he would learn to be smart like him, and learn to play his game a little bit.

Budds Creek Track


Continued from page B- Dungey, the second place finisher in the Lites division finals. They build these little berms for us, its really nice. Great track, great turnout. [Budds Creek] is one of my four favorite tracks. AMA Motocross veteran Tim Ferry also enjoyed racing at Budds Creek, and wasnt fazed by the direction of the track being turned backwards, even though he admitted he prefers the first turn that heads in the original direction. I always like this track, said Ferry, who finished second to James Stewart in the Motocross finals Sunday afternoon. Its a good track and its manicured perfect. Stewart, who has yet to lose an event this season, was able to do some scouting during Saturdays amateur races to see where riders were pushing out and used that knowledge to his advantage the next day. I just thought the track had more open lines and that it was a little short, but it was pretty good, he said. Ryan Villopoto, winner of the Lites Division motos, has had a lot of success at Budds Creek and felt

there was an added element that made the track more to his liking. The dirt has a lot of sawdust in it, Villopoto said. Those little berms that they do build for us helped me find some real good lines on the outside. Ferry Has Nations on His Mind While Tim Ferry continues to stay in contention with James Stewart for first place in the AMA Motocross division, he also expressed a desire to be named to the final spot of the United States Nations team, a spot he had last year when the United States took the Motocross of Nations Championship at Budds Creek last summer. I think I would be the next best pick, Ferry said, nominating himself to replace the currently injured Mike Alessi on the Nations team this coming season. Its an honor to be among the three fastest riders from our own country, Ferry said of last years win. He added that he would not take Alessis opportunity away from him should he be able to return from various injuries (a broken rib and a bruised lung among them) later this season. If hes able to come back, so be it, Ferry said. Id hate to see him or anybody crash that way.

Steroids Shoot Cynicism Into Torres Achievements
By Chris Stevens Staff Writer In this country, the old adage goes that one is innocent until proven guilty, and guilt must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. While this may be the case in courtrooms around the country, many people would apply the conviction before the trial in the sports world, especially in the case of Dara Torres. The spry 41 year-old Torres, who first qualified for the United States Olympic Swim team when one Chris Stevens was just a toddler, just set the world on fire at the U.S. qualifying tournament for this years Olympic games in Beijing, China and earned her fifth trip to the games two weeks ago. In what should be an amazing celebratory time for Dara, she instead is busy trying to deny rumors that she got her groove back by taking performance-enhancing drugs. There have been older athletes since the beginning of time that continued to perform well into their old age. A personal favorite, Satchel Paige (who may or may not have been born in 1906, no one knows for sure) was still mowing down Major League batters in the mid-1960s. The legendary Gordie Howe still remains the only National Hockey League player to see game action in five decades. Furthermore, The Chief, Robert Parish set the NBA record for most seasons played (21) and most games played (1,611) while playing a key role off the bench for the 1997 NBA Champion Chicago Bulls. Ah, but what do these aging athletes have in common that Dara Torres and other late bloomers dont? There was no cloud of suspicion hanging over the heads of Paige, Howe and Parish among others. Steroids didnt become a major issue in pro sports until somewhere in the early 1990s, when NFL players and performers in Vince McMahons World Wrestling Federation seemed to have consistent dates on Capitol Hill to testify before Congress about their alleged usage of the substance. With Barry Bonds breaking Hank Aarons long-standing Major League home-run record under said cloud over his head the past few seasons, no athletes who have vastly improved their performance

in advanced age, or young ones who come firing out of the gates for that matter, are safe from suspicion of performance enhancing drug (PED) use. Could it be unfair in some cases? Yes. In most cases? Probably not. The reason anyone who seems to be doing better than average in most sports is accused of PED usage is because many of their counterparts HAVE been proven guilty of the crime by drug tests. Who can forget former Oriole (sorry Os fans) Rafael Palmeiro with his best Smokey The Bear imitation proclaiming during those 2005 hearings that he never used steroids? Smokey had to be ashamed when word got out that Palmeiro actually failed a drug test around the same time he joined the 3,000-hit club later that season. Bonds, who has yet to find a job in the Major Leagues this season after 15 years of service with the San Francisco Giants (22 overall), faces quite a few federal perjury charges that stem from his testimony of never knowingly taking steroids. Along with other disgraced PED users like Marion Jones and Floyd Landis, its human nature to think that not a soul walking among the fields and tracks of America are achieving athletic supremacy with good, clean living. The obvious question to ask is when does it get to be too much? When can one say Okay, so maybe this person IS actually as good as advertised? One example that comes to mind immediately is Ryan

Howard of the Philadelphia Phillies (Why, yes. Yes I am a homer). Howard, a 6-foot-4, 260-pound mountain of a man from St. Louis, Mo., forced the Phils to trade the very popular Jim Thome to make room for him at first base. In the two and a half seasons since Thome (another husky Midwestern gentleman) was dealt to the Chicago White Sox, the New Big Man has not disappointed, slugging 130 home runs and winning the 2006 National League Most Valuable Player award. There were faint whispers once upon a time that Howard may have been juicing, but when people took notice that all the men his family (his father and his twin brother just to name a couple) were well over 6 feet tall and 200 pounds, the rumors subsided quickly, and his slugging prowess was rightfully chalked up to genetics and hard work. Albert Pujols of the St. Louis Cardinals has had arguably the best start to a career of any Major Leaguer ever, but even he, with 300 home runs and over 900 runs batted in at the ripe old age of 28, cant escape accusations of steroid and/or PED use. It certainly will not do Pujols any favors that his manager Tony LaRussa was charged with turning a blind eye to steroid use on his talented Oakland Athletics ball clubs by slugger-turned-whistle blower Jose Canseco in his scathing book, Juiced. Also, Pujols is on the same team with the same manager as another famed suspect in the far-reaching scandal Mark McGwire,

who was found to be using the steroid androstenedione during his 70-home run season 10 years ago. McGwire failed miserably to clear his name in the 2005 hearings when he said that he was not on Capitol Hill to talk about the past. In not talking about the past McGwire did irreparable damage to his reputation and his future, jeopardizing his Hall-Of-Fame enshrinement, which was thought to be a foregone conclusion when he retired in 2001. So what does this mean for Dara Torres? Unfortunately, until it comes out that shes passed her drug tests and that she really has worked hard to continue her 20-plus year run of success, she will be a target of criticism and accusations of steroid use. As is the case in many of lifes matters, you have two sides to consider what you want to believe and what you are forced to think. In the case of Dara Torres and several other outstanding athletes, almost everyone wants to believe they are indeed highquality, super-talented individuals who are naturally at the top of their game. However, as long as that steroid needle rears its ugly head, people will be convinced that athletes just inject themselves with greatness, rather than using the blood, sweat and tears formula for success. What do you think of this weeks From The Sports Desk? Contact Chris at chrisstevens@countytimes. net with your feedback.

Villopoto
Continued from page B- races, Villopoto, who upped his points lead over Ryan Dungey to 103 with the win, said of the track where he also raced in the Nations tournament last year. Villopotos strategy was born of patience, waiting to see which lanes would open up for him to pass riders and keep the lead. The last five laps, I was pretty much spent, so I was taking my time and looking for some lines, he explained. Villopoto, who now has 341 points in 2008, felt the fatigue factor came into play because of the backwards layout the track employed for this race, not to mention the 30 minutes plus two laps distance, which made for a much longer race than usual. I definitely would rather see 12 or 13 laps, he said. The track was kind of short, obviously that makes it harder, but we all had to race on the same track. Racing on the same track and joining Villopoto on the podium were Dungey (Belle Plaine, Minn.) and Brett Metcalfe (Murrieta, Calif.), who managed not only to finish second and third respectively on Sunday, but keep those same two positions behind Villopoto in the Lites Division points standings. Metcalfe (198 points on the year) raced most of the finals with a sore ankle, another injury in a long line for him, but he toughed it out and managed to finish in third. I was just being a baby

about [the ankle], he said with a slight laugh. I popped it and I started fading out. I was in a lot of pain, but itll be alright. Metcalfe realizes that injuries are part of the game, but he is not happy about injuries to his ankle and shoulder this season. I cant do anything about it, no one likes it, but I just keep battling through, giving 100 percent and its awesome

to get a little reward, he said of finishing third on the day. Dungey, who had his own pain from an accident a few weeks ago, was able to overtake Metcalfe, Kyle Cunningham and Trey Canard to finish in second place. I was a little bit behind [Trey], he made a mistake and swapped, Dungey, now with 238 points on the season, explained of his ascent to second place. From then on, I just fo-

cused on getting in some good laps, because Ryan had a little lead. Villopoto held on to the lead, but not without some thinking involved. It depends on the situation, he said of his approach to taking a lead. I dont want to wait too long [to take the lead]. If it doesnt come to me right away, then I have to go get it.

Experts Weigh In On Identity Theft


Long Standing State Website May Tell Too Much
Andrea Shiell Staff Writer Those who have been pulled over or received any type of criminal, civil, or traffic citation in the state of Maryland may be surprised to learn that their name, address, Social Security number, birthday, and even their race are readily available for free at some state-run websites, and may be accessed by those with sinister intentions. The citations listed go back more than 30 years, and include records even for routine traffic stops that were ultimately dismissed, said Laura Baumgartner, Director of Public relations for LifeLock, a company that provides identity theft protection services. Its one-stop shopping, exclaimed Tami Nealy, Director of Communications for LifeLock. During her tenure with the company, she said she has seen a sharp increase in identity theft cases, particularly within the last few years. Theyre no longer putting your Social Security number on the site, she said, but she added that the old records still list Maryland drivers license numbers as Social Security numbers, and websites providing case information have not erased that information. Theyre not detracting that, its still there, she said. Signs that someone has fallen victim to identity theft vary, but there are several telltale signs that consumers should be aware of; bills and statements arriving late or not arriving at all could mean that someone has stolen mail or changed a persons address. Nealy said that there are as many as 45 million change-of-address requests filed each year, and companies do not have the resources to verify that each request is legitimate. Con-

SMCPS Implements Student Dress Code


St. Marys County Public Schools (SMCPS) has developed a Student Dress Code to support a safe and positive learning environment that is free of distractions and disruptions. There is a close relationship between student dress and student behavior. Therefore, proper dress is important to setting the pattern of school and social conduct. The Student Dress Code, to be implemented with the start of the 2008-2009 school year, states:

Clothing and Accessories in General


Clothing displaying or suggesting profanity; sexual activity through graphic images, words, or innuendos; weapons; drugs/alcohol or drug paraphernalia; violence; or tobacco products may not be worn. Clothing with identifiable gang/ crew representation or paraphernalia may not be worn. Suggestive or provocative clothing such as see-through clothing or shirts/blouses/dresses with low necklines which show cleavage may not be worn. Official St. Marys County Public Schools athletic uniforms may be allowed at the discretion of the coach. Student dress for mixers (informal dances) must be in compliance with the Student Dress Code.

Master of Arts in Teaching Degree Awarded to 23 Candidates


Commencement Speaker Trustee Lawrence Leak Notes Grads Will Have Profound Impact On One of Americas Greatest Resources. Twenty-three newly minted teachers ready to bring fresh ideas to schools in Southern Maryland and other areas graduated June 28 with St. Marys College of Maryland (SMCM) Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) degrees. President Jane Margaret OBrien made opening remarks and presented the graduates with their degrees at the commencement ceremony in St. Marys Hall. Dr. Lawrence Leak gave the commencement address. Leak is a College trustee and recently retired chief academic officer of University of Maryland University College. He is also vice chairman of the Historic St. Marys City Commission. In noting that this is the second class of M.A.T. candidates to graduate, OBrien applauded the 2008 class, saying, I know you admire the faculty deeply. I know the expectations are very high, as is the academic rigor asked of you. She cited the commitment to service each of you have and praised those students who took the initiative to teach in a different environment in The Gambia and Australia. Leak opened his remarks by commenting that earning a graduate degree has been called one of the most significant life-changing milestones. He said of the graduates, As teachers you have a profound impact on one of Americas greatest resources, elementary and

St. Clements Island is the site of the first colonial landing in Maryland dating back to 1634. It also hosted a lighthouse built in 1851 for over 100 years, a hotel and cottages for vacationers from Washington, D. C. who traveled there by steamboat, a farm and tomato cannery. Today, the island is a Maryland state park with picnic pavilion, picnic tables, grills, chemical toilet, walking trail and a 40-foot commemorative cross that honors the first Maryland colonists who founded the

Leak also noted the benefits of holding a graduate degree in teaching in the state of Maryland, including eligibility for the states highest teaching license after only three years and six additional credits. According to Leak, focus on teaching at the state level has never been sharper, with the federal No Child Left Behind program calling needed attention to teacher credentials and student achievement, with renewed attention paid to elementary and secondary education. He emphasized that it is crucial that teachers set high academic expectations for students while providing multiple See Art Teaching Degrees page B-5

Citizens Encouraged To Sign Up For Automatic Notification Of Weather Warnings


The Board of County Commissioners for St. Marys County has raised the bar in public safety by providing residents with CodeRED Weather Warnings at no cost. To receive automated tornado, flash flood, and severe weather warnings to your business, home or cell phone, please sign up today by logging on to www.stmarysmd.com. Click on E-Gov, then click on Emergency Notification Sign Up. This notification system is fast and effective, said President Jack Russell, St. Marys County Board of County Commissioners. I encourage everyone to sign up for this service today. St. Marys County is one of the first municipalities in the country to provide this notification system for its residents. This information will remain completely private and will only be made available to notify you of critical situations. Citizens are urged to be aware and be prepared for weather emergencies, particularly for tornado events. If there is a tornado warning for any area in St. Marys County, the countys Emergency Communications staff will activate the Fire & Rescue Sirens with a Take Cover signal for Tornado Warnings. This signal lasts for 13 cycles and is significantly different from a fire or rescue call signal. This system is tested on the first Saturday of every month at noon. Other things you can do to prepare include: Familiarize yourself with the terms that are used to identify a tornado hazard. A tornado watch means a tornado is possible in your area. You should monitor NOAA Weather Radio local radio and television news outlets for the latest developments. A tornado warning is when a tornado is actually occurring; take shelter immediately. Determine in advance where you will take shelter in case of a tornado warning. Storm cellars or basements provide the best protection. If underground shelter is not available, go into an interior room or hallway on the lowest floor possible. In a high-rise building, go to a small interior room or hallway on the lowest floor possible. Stay away from windows, doors and outside walls. Go to the center of the room. Stay away from corners because they attract debris. A vehicle, trailer or mobile home does not provide good protection. Plan to go quickly to a building with a strong foundation, if possible. If shelter is not available, lie flat in a ditch or other low-lying area. Do not get under an overpass or bridge. You are safer in a low, flat location. Plan to stay in the shelter location until the danger has passed. Get a kit of emergency supplies. Store it in your shelter location. For more information contact the Department of Public Safety at 301-475-4200 x2124 or visit the countys website at www.stmarysmd. com/Emergencycomm.

Community Comprehensive Plan Meetings Set for July


Citizens are encouraged to attend one of the five community meetings scheduled to discuss the St. Marys County Comprehensive Plan, which was adopted in 2002 and is titled, Quality of Life in St. Marys County A Strategy for the 21st Century. These open meetings will be Wed, July 9, 2008 at Lettie Dent Elementary School in Charlotte Hall; Thursday, July 10 at Seventh District Fire Department in Avenue; Wed, July 16 at Leonardtown Middle School; Wed, July 23 in the Lexington Park Library, and Thurs, July 31 at Ridge Elementary School.

Comments on this plan and the process are also welcome by writing to the Board of County Commissioners at PO Box 653, Leonardtown, MD 20650 or by emailing bocc@stmarysmd.com. State law requires that counties review their comprehensive plans at least every six years. The community meetings will be an important part of this review, and will be an opportunity for those who participate to help assess whether the County is on the correct course for development and preservation. Participants will help to identify what kind of future growth pattern will allow the County to best achieve its missions, and to determine what local government policies and actions would best achieve that growth pattern. All citizens are encouraged to review the current document. It is available at www.stmarysmd.com. Click on Land Use Growth Management under the Services box. Then click on Comprehensive Planning. Then click on Comprehensive Plan. The Plan is used for guidance in making decisions such as Comprehensive Zoning, Zoning Text Amendments, the 2005 Land Preservation Parks and Recreation Plan, the 2006 Transportation Plan, and consideration of capital projects. Several recommendations contained in the current Plan have been accomplished. This planning process allows the community to recognize future needs and set forth new initiatives. The community meetings are an important part of updating this document. Please attend and offer your comments. Following the community meetings, the St. Marys Countys Planning Commission will hold a public hearing prior to its approval of the updated document. The Board of County Commissioners will also hold a public hearing before its approval of the revised document and the final approved plan will be submitted to the State of Maryland in 2009.

Searches lead to suspected marijuana, smoking device


On July 11, 2008 Deputies McCoy and Safford responded to Valley Court in Lexington Park to investigate a report of possible controlled dangerous substance violations involving five male suspects. Upon arrival, four of the suspects fled into the wood line. An inspection of the area revealed numerous blunt cigars commonly used to smoke marijuana. McCoy made contact with William Ambrose Fenwick, 18, of Lexington Park and asked Fenwick if he could conduct a pat down of his person for weapons. Fenwick consented to the pat down. During the pat down McCoy felt a bulge consistent with the size and packaging of controlled dangerous substance in Fenwicks pocket. McCoy recovered a small bag containing suspected marijuana. Fenwick was arrested for possession of a controlled

dangerous substance. On July 12, 2008 Deputy Campbell responded to an area on New Market Turner Road in Charlotte Hall for a report of a person walking in the middle of the roadway.

The Blue-footed Booby


By Theresa Morr
easy to tame, not too smart, and clumsy on land. Bluefooted boobies also hang out along the rocky western coasts of Central and South America and parts of southern California. Boobies live and nest in colonies among the rocks. But at sunrise, they fly out to sea in search of a meal. Although wobbly in their take-offs and landings, these guys are fantastic flyers once in the air. They are small fish and squid eaters and when spotting a school of, say, sardines or anchovies, the boobies become like streamlined torpedoes. They fold their wings back around their bodies and divebomb straight into the water at about 60 mph. Whew! And up they come with a fish dangling out of its long beak. Boobies have permanently closed nostrils for diving, so water up the nose isnt a problem for these guys. They just breathe through the corner of their mouth. Pretty awesome, huh? Both male and female boobies have blue webbed feet but males with the bluest feet are more in favor as prospective mates. The male booby tries to impress the female by flaunting his blue feet, along with performing an exaggerated high-stepping strut; spreading his wings; and presenting the female with nesting materials. After this brief courtship display, the birds dance together and point their bills toward the sky as the male spreads his wings once again and lets out a loud whistle. Its all part of Mother Natures mating ritual. Females lay two or three eggs and both parents take turns in incubating them. They also use their webbed feet to cover the young chicks to keep them warm. Blue-footed boobies are about the size of a goose and weigh around three to four pounds. They have white chests and throats; wings and feathers on their back are brownish; and their face is a greenish-blue with a large grey beak. These seabirds have a life span of about 17 years. For more cool stuff and pictures of blue-footed boobies, surf over to http://kids. nationalgeographic.com/Animals/CreatureFeature/Bluebooby. And guess what? There are also brown and red-footed boobies, too! Check them out on the Internet.

Can you imagine having blue feet? Well, if you were a blue-footed booby and could talk, you might say, Hey dude, check out my fabulous blue feet! Blue-footed boobies are tropical seabirds with long wings, thick necks, and tapered tails. They are known mostly as Galapagos Island residents, where early explorers to this island off the coast of Ecuador found the birds. Their name comes from the Spanish word bobo meaning stupid fellow because the explorers found the birds
