MORGANZA In the frst
half of Friday nights 3A South
football playoff game, Chopticon
and Lackey couldnt seem to get
a hold on the football, much less
control of the action.
In the second half, the Char-
gers took control and coasted to
a 21-3 victory at Braves Stadium,
ending Chopticons frst playoff
appearance since 2001.
Im proud of our guys, said
head coach Tony Lisanti after a
disappointing loss that featured
nine turnovers, eight of them
fumbles between the two teams.
You have a bunch of guys who
work together and play hard.
There are no superstars on this

After a year chock full of individual and
team success in 06-07, the St. Marys Ryken
boys basketball team looks to improve on last
years breakout season under a new coach.
Dave Tallman, 25, will be leading the Knights
into battle this year, replacing former head
coach Danny Sancomb, who accepted posi-
tions as athletic director and mens basketball
coach at Wheeling (W. Va) Jesuit University
this past off-season.
Tallman, a player at Jesuit and an assistant
at Ryken under Sancomb, is elated to have his
frst head coaching job at Ryken.
Its bittersweet, because Danny and I are
best friends, Tallman said, but Im blessed
and very excited to have my frst head coach-
ing job in the Washington Catholic Athletic
Conference.
With the talent the Knights possess, Tall-
man wont be going into battle without weap-
ons. Returning to Ryken this year is senior
point guard Julius Brown, who averaged 18
points per game last year and was named to
the WCAC All-Conference second team.
Joining him this year is 66 senior for-
ward John Taylor, who spent last season in the
shadow of all-conference forward John Flow-
ers, who is now playing college ball under Bob
Huggins at the University of West Virginia.
Tallman says hes expecting a lot from Taylor
this year, especially replacing someone the
Ryken Looks To Improve On Breakthrough Season

If it aint broke, dont fx it is a
popular clich used when things ap-
pear to be going well, no matter the
case. The St. Marys County Parks
and Recreation department feels dif-
ferently about this saying, and while
having 11,000 kids play various
sports around the county is great,
St. Marys County Parks and Recre-
ation Director Arthur Shepherd felt
that something else could be added
to ensure the safety of the kids and to
make sure they were having fun.
Ive seen youth sports thrive
and grow in the county for a long
time, said Shepherd, who has been
with the department for 29 years. But
in 2001, while attending a national
youth sports conference in Chicago
he decided to create Community
Standards in Youth Sports, a code
of conduct for parents and coaches to
follow. The programs motto is Ed-
ucation in youth sports for a positive
future. Shepherd ran the idea past
the county commissioners, who ap-
proved the idea in 2005.
All coaches are expected to
complete certifcation and back-
ground checks that will state that
they are qualifed to volunteer with
and coach the children. Since the
program was put into place two years
ago, only 1.5 percent of the coaches
in St. Marys County Youth Sports
were disqualifed.
While Shepherd helped cre-
ate the program, he knew that he
couldnt run himself, so he tapped
Todd French to handle all duties re-
garding the Community Standards
movement. We knew we needed
someone that was going to monitor
and implement this program, Shep-
herd said of French.
French, a Seaford, Delaware na-
tive, feels the biggest challenge is
just informing everyone of what
were doing. While the program
preceded Frenchs arrival a year ago,
he still feels good about the direction
of the program.
There are a lot of states and
counties that dont have things like
[The Standards] in place, he ex-
plains. To see it here is really
rewarding.
The specifcs of the program in-
clude background checks and certi-
fcation for all coaches. The checks
are paid for the by the County, while
the CYA courses are paid for by the

With the Harvest Bowl taking place this past Sunday, next Sundays f-
nale for the Pigskin Football league, the 29th Annual Turkey Bowl takes
place at 5th District Park in Charlotte Hall, and Don Kemp looks forward to
the event every year.
Every kid gets a trophy, so thats a great thing to see their faces light
up, said Kemp, the director of Pigskin Football for 22 years. It wasnt al-
ways done this way.
There are 48 teams in Pigskin football, so giving out trophies to each
individual child (by Kemps estimate, 1,400 to 1,500 kids are in the league

LEONARDTOWN The clang
and clatter of rollerblades, pads, hel-
mets and hockey sticks and the excit-
ed chatter of children of various ages
flled the air of Leonard Hall Sunday
afternoon.
Renae Tieman would like to hear
those noises get louder eventually.
We really would like to see
more kids participate because were
struggling to get players, Tieman
said of the youth roller hockey league
that holds games every Sunday at
Leonard Hall.
The youth league is divided up
into two age groups, Under 10 and
Under 1, with both leagues having
four teams apiece. When there is
enough interest, there are instruc-
tional leagues for kids under the age
of six who are interested in learning
the fundamentals of roller hockey.
Tieman, a certifed parent-coach
liaison, said most parents and kids
fnd hockey to be an addicting
sport. I dont know of any kids who
have tried hockey and not continued
playing. Her son 8 year-old son
Joshua, a goaltender for the Kiwi
says he likes playing goaltender and
roller hockey because it keeps him
busy.
Boz Sowa, head coach of the Sa-
bers, and a coach in the league for
three years, said it is great to coach
the kids because you get to know
the kids. Watching them all devel-
op and improve over time is really
rewarding.

everybody gets the papers or
the fiers, so we use word of
mouth as much as possible,
he explained. Once the kids
see it, theyll think itll be
fun to do. Tieman has also
been allowed to go to her sons
school and post fiers about
the league and registration.
Registration is ongoing
and costs $70 per child. That
cost includes all equipment
and uniforms.
The cool part about it is
the kids get to keep their jer-
seys after the season is over,
Tieman added.
McLaughlin and Tieman
both said roller hockey is a
great sport for bridging the
gap between soccer and base-
ball seasons. Fall and Winter
Roller Hockey run from Sep-
tember until April, so the kids
that play soccer and baseball
can stay in shape and remain
active in between those sea-
sons. The league is also open
to girls as well, and Rachel
McLaughlin would like more
company out there.
More girls should play
so the league can keep going,
she said.

We really want parents to look at this as

Willimantic, Conn. The
St. Marys College of Mary-
land mens basketball team
captured the 27th Annual
Eastern Connecticut State
University Tip-Off Tourna-
ment by handing tournament
host, ECSU, a 94-88 setback
Saturday afternoon in Geissler
Gym.
The Seahawks 2-0 start
to the 2007-08 campaign is
the teams best start since the
1999-2000 season, when St.
Marys kicked off with a 3-0
mark.
Senior guard Tyson Le-
sesne (Edgewood, Md./Edge-
wood) was named the Tourna-
ment MVP and earned a spot
on the All-Tournament Team
after notching 43 points in
two games. Joining Lesesne
on the All-Tournament Team
were senior captain Mike
Smelkinson (Elkridge, Md./
Long Reach) and junior for-
ward Alex Irmer (Alexandria,
Va./Wakefeld).
The Warriors (1-1) opened
up with a 3-0 lead behind a
three-point jumper by Court-
ney Simmons at 19:45. St.
Marys used a 15-7 run to go
ahead 15-10 at 14:05. The
score was tied twice after the
Seahawks took the lead with
the last time coming at 9:22
(24-24) following a trey by
Edwin Ortiz. From that point
on, St. Marys pulled away
from ECSU and led by double
digits for the remainder of the
half.
Led by freshman forward
Mikey Fitzpatricks (Bethes-
da, Md./Walt Whitman) 11
points off the bench in the frst
stanza, the Seahawks sported
a 48-36 margin at halftime.
The Warriors were paced by
Kris Johnsons 14 points.
ECSU had a minor rally
to commence the second half
as the Warriors had a 7-0 run
to pull within fve at 19:13.
However, St. Marys quickly
rebuilt its double-digit lead
and had an 18-point advantage
with 9:10 left in the game.
It seemed as if the Hawks
would cruise to victory until
the last four minutes when
ECSU strung together runs of
13-4 and 9-3 to only be down
by three (91-88) with 13 sec-
onds on the clock. A pair of
free throws by Lesesne and
one by Smelkinson sealed the
Hawk victory.
Fitzpatrick fnished with
a team-high 17 points, while
Smelkinson and Lesesne each
tallied 16. Smelkinson dished
out a game-high seven assists
and picked fve pockets, while
Lesesne went 9-for-9 from the
free throw line. Irmer also
scored in double-digits with
14 and pulled eight rebounds.
Ortiz led all players with
23 points and had fve assists,
while Leon Martin collected
a double-double on 16 points
and 10 boards and added six
blocks. Ortiz made all 11 of
his free throw shots. Johnson
was quiet in the second half
and ended the game with 14
points.

Four players in double-fgures
helped frst-year head coach
Barb Bausch (Yorba Linda,
Calif.) to her frst win at the
helm of the St. Marys College
of Maryland womens basket-
ball program.
The Seahawks posted an
80-53 season-opening win
over California Maritime
Academy in the opening
round of the SUNY Maritime
Tip-Off Tournament Friday
afternoon.
St. Marys (1-0) will face
the Maine Maritime Acad-
emy, a 78-66 winner over
Johnson & Wales University,
in Saturdays championship
match-up.
The Seahawks jumped
out to a 6-0 lead in the opening
half before Lauren Westbrook
connected on a three-pointer
at 18:55 to put Cal Maritime
on the board. However, that
is as close as the Keelhaulers
(1-3) would get as St. Marys
used a 14-7 run to post a 20-
10 margin at the 11:58-mark.
SMCM would lead by dou-
ble-digits for the rest of the
contest, leading by 19 (37-18)
with fve minutes left before
halftime.
St. Marys owned a 39-
28 halftime lead as junior
forward Kiely Murphy (Ol-
ney, Md./Good Counsel) and
sophomore guard Steph Saint-
Aubin (Bowie, Md./Eliza-
beth Seton) each tallied eight
points.
The Seahawks continued
to build their lead in the sec-
ond half, boasting a 29-point
margin at the 2:39-mark and
again with 1:30 remaining
in the game. The SMCM de-
fense held Cal Maritime 0-of-
8 from downtown.
Murphy and Saint-Au-
bin each fnished the game
with 15 points for St. Marys,
while junior forward Allie
Scott (Laurel, Md./Atholton)
contributed a double-double
on 12 points and a game-high
dozen rebounds. Freshman
center Tiara Hurte (Balti-
more, Md./Perry Hall) added
10 points and nine boards in
her frst career start.
As a team, St. Marys
notched a 45.5-feld goal per-
centage, including 46.2%
from behind the three-point
arc, while making 14-of-21
free throw shots.
The Keelhaulers had three
in double digits with Nakia
Watson leading the way with
a game-high 19 points, eight
caroms, fve steals, and four
assists, while Keniya Thur-
man had 11 and Jessica Dill-
man added 10.

County Times Section B -
Sale ends 12/3/07
team.
Lackeys superstar Friday
night was senior running back
Michael Rock Johnson,
who carried the ball 19 times
for 183 yards, including a 71-
yard touchdown sprint with
5:58 to go in the game that
crushed the Braves hopes for
a comeback.
We run the ball; its no
secret we want to control the
clock, said Chargers head
coach Doug Lamb. Johnson
gave Chopticon credit for
keeping him to just 56 yards
on eight carries in the frst
half, but knew his time would
come.
We just werent going to
give up, we like to pound and
pound, so thats what we did.
Long before Johnson went
streaking down the right side-
line, the Chargers and Braves
played hot potato with the
football, with Lackey fum-
bling three times in the frst
half deep in their own ter-
ritory. However, the Braves
could only convert a 24-yard
feld goal out of those three
Charger turnovers.
Those were costly,
Lisanti said of Chopticon be-
ing unable to take advantage
of Lackeys mistakes and
turning the ball over four
times themselves.
The damaging turnover
for the Braves occurred on the
opening drive of the second
half. After a 32-yard kickoff
return by Matt Boltz placed
the ball on their 47-yard line,
the Braves marched well into
Lackey territory. An ill timed
fumble killed that drive and
Lackey began systematically
running down the clock with
their trademark time-con-
suming offense.
We were fnally moving
the ball, and any time you get
momentum and turn the ball
over, thats tough, Lisanti
added. The Braves mustered
just 119 yards of total offense
in the game.
quality of Flowers. Junior for-
ward R.J. Buck, who was the
sixth man as a freshman and
a starter his sophomore year,
also returns for the Knights,
labeled as a wonderful kid
and our leader by Tallman.
After years of strug-
gling through WCAC play,
which includes nationally-
known schools like DeMatha
Catholic, Archbishop Car-
roll and Bishop McNamara,
the Knights piled up 17 wins
in the 2006-2007 season and
advanced to the conference
semifnals for the frst time
in the schools history. Tall-
man says he doesnt believe in
reinventing the wheel, so the
same style of play that brought
Ryken close to a title last sea-
son will be in place with just
a few tweaks for the 2007-08
campaign.
Tallman feels his youth
and inexperience as a head
coach will not be a problem as
the year progresses due to his
returning veterans, a strong
sophomore group, led by Eli-
jah Matthews, Dave Brocken-
berry and Kai Smith, and help
from assistants Matt Plunkett
and Kevin Nelson.
A self-professed gym rat,
Tallman picked up the passion
for basketball and coaching
from his father, Dave Tallman,
Sr., a West Virginia coaching
legend. The elder Tallman
has an 11-1 record in West
Virginia high school post-sea-
son play and two state titles,
one coming with Dave as the
point guard in 2000. Daves
younger brother Nate was a
member of the West Virginia
squad that made the sweet 16
in 2006. Ive been around the
block a time or two, and Im
really look-
ing forward
to coming in
and coaching
these kids.
very special.
Kemp himself always
hands the trophies to the kids
personally after the games,
and he cherishes a special re-
lationship with them.
Thats what its sup-
posed to be about. The looks
on their faces is the reward for
me, he said. Kemp also ex-
plained that the Pigskin Foot-
ball league is the only one
that weighs each child before
every game to keep things fair
and balanced.
Parents wont have to
worry about their 70-pound
child playing against a 130-
pound child, he said.

What do black men think? This is a question that
many Americans fail to answer without bias. The subject
is undertaken in a new documentary by Janks Morton,
who presented it at a screening at St. Marys College of
Maryland on Oct. 19. Morton presented his flm to a ra-
cially mixed audience of over 100 people. Afterwards,
the group discussed the stereotypes of African-Ameri-
can men that are perpetuated in society. In the flm,
Morton presents a Black Nationalists position on affr-
mative action in the African-American community. He
asserts that social problems such as lower incomes that
have existed since the Civil Rights Movement should
not be an excuse for African-Americans to fail. A per-
tinent question he asks is whether the dream that Mar-
tin Luther King, Jr., proposed has come true for African
Americans. The powerful impact of the flm sparked
a lively discussion, moderated by Helen Daugherty and
Jeff Smith. Daugherty is a professor of anthropology and
sociology and holds the G. Thomas and Martha Meyers
Chair in Liberal Arts. Smith is the Colleges associate
director of admissions. Several prominent leaders in St.

ed the screening, including Harold Herndon, president of

St. Marys dentist Dr. J.
Timothy Modic recently pre-
sented the Greenwell Founda-
tion with a check for $10,000
for the Therapeutic Riding
Program. Dr. Modic chose
Greenwell as his charity of
choice in a fundraising effort
through the Crown Council.
Dr. Modic raised money for
the councils charitable or-
ganization for children, the
Smiles for Life Foundation.
Smiles for Life help children
with serious health condi-
tions and education defcien-
cies. Each year over a four-
month period, Crown Council
dentists participating in the
Smiles for Life campaign of-
fer professional tooth whiten-
ing for less than their normal
fee, donate their time to per-
form the work, and donate
100% of the proceeds to chil-
drens charities throughout
the United States and Canada.
Dr. Modics wife, Faith, is
an avid equestrian and owns
four horses. Dr. Modic heard
about Greenwells Therapeu-
tic Riding Program (TRP)
and thought it was a good ft
for his efforts. The TRP is
designed for individuals with
developmental, physical or
emotional challenges. The
program focuses on ability
rather than disability. It be-
gan in 1999 with only a few
volunteers, horses, and riders,
and has grown into the larg-
est such program in Southern
Maryland. Since its incep-
tion the program has reached
over 300 participants. Thank
you Dr. Modic! For more in-
formation about Dr. Modic

Holiday Opn House
Decembr 1s & 2nd
Come the holidays, there is a lot of talk about hosting a crowd of loved ones. But what to do if your event is smaller in
scale?
Make the most of an intimate gathering by focusing in on the details you may have had to forego if you were opening
your home to a large number of people. This is a perfect time to take out a special set of china, linen napkins and a lavish
tablecloth. Allow the table to shine with a centerpiece brimming with fowers and foliage, or create a personalized centerpiece
with your favorite antique urn or other collectible. Because youll be able to easily manage guests in one area of the house,
you wont have to worry as much about damage to your fner items as you would if you were watching a crowd.
Many times, hosts and hostesses are forced to compromise conversation opportunities when they have a full house
- there just isnt time for personalized interaction with everyone. However, when you have just a handful of guests, you can
make the most of catching up on conversation. Make chatting over dinner or drinks an integral part of the celebration. You
can also choose to engage in activities that would be cumbersome with a larger crowd, such as board games or even holiday
caroling.
Cooking for a crowd is much different from cooking for a few people. The former often requires easy dishes that can
be stretched or multiplied for the masses. In an intimate party, you can put culinary prowess to the test and wow guests with
a special meal, such as lobster tails and flet mignon.You can also devote a larger amount of your entertaining budget for
expensive cuts of meat and fner wines. Theres also the opportunity to have the meal catered, where the expense will be
much less than if you had to feed a dozen or so guests.
Because youll have more time in general, you can do up your house as a winter wonderland or holiday paradise. Some
easy ways to impart a cozy and inviting look are to use bunches of evergreen bows (or artifcial evergreen garland) on
mantles, around doorways and wrapped on the banisters of staircases. Also, white lights complement just about any color
scheme, so use them generously in the rooms in which youll be entertaining, along with touches of red from pomegranates,
faux berries and poinsettias. Fill the home with inviting scents and sounds by lighting vanilla- or spice-scented candles, and
softly tuning the radio to your favorite CD of holiday songs or a classical music station.
Holiday entertaining for a few guests is the perfect opportunity to focus on the details that get overlooked when your
house is flled to the brim with friends and family. Enjoy how you can interact more and relax while you entertain when
youre hosting just a few people.

tion to what people believe
versus what the real truths
are, said Herndon. Cramer
said, Whats most important
about this documentary is that
it provokes thought and dis-
cussion. It is not important that
we agree on every issue, but it
is important that we have rel-
evant and meaningful discus-
sions in the schools, colleges,
churches, and throughout the
community. Alonzo Gas-
kins, a leader in the St. Marys
County NAACP, said, In the
21st century, we have intel-
lectuals everywhere, but you
dont see any of them reach-
ing back into the [black] com-
munity to help. How can we
get them to help out? We are
fghting desperately with the
education gap in this county.
An important question raised
was how the lessons from the
flm could be communicated
to the younger generation.
Even from a young age, Af-
rican-American males who
excel in academics are often
ostracized from their own
community and said to be
acting white. The audience
was in agreement that this atti-
tude needs to be changed. The
documentary confronts and
dispels common stereotypes
about African-American men
through statistics. One of the
myths is that there are more
black men in jail than in col-
lege. Factually, within the 18
- 24 age group, there are four
times as many young African-
American men in college as in
jail. This jail versus college
[number] has damaged the
black psyche, said Morton.
Protest has to be redefned
in order to change the media.
Thats the only way theyre go-
ing to change. There is no pos-
itive media coverage of black
people. We have to do a better
job of our images and control-
ling those images. Morton
urges the black community
to work to fx this negative
image. He blames the current
leadership of the NAACP and
the hip-hop culture for frmly
rooting the negative idea of
the black male in mainstream
media. Public fgures like rap-
pers are culprits because they
perpetuate these undesirable
characteristics. Communi-
cating about what is really go-
ing on is essential, said John
Brown, one of the attendees,
who lived in Mississippi dur-
ing the 1960s. The black
Civil Rights leaders never
communicated what it was
all about [in the 60s]. Black
men were never compensated
as equals for work, and so af-
frmative action became com-
pensation. Morton wants to
see a change in the messages
being pervaded by the media.
The problem began with what
he described as the disem-
powering message that came
out of the 1960s: Youve been
held behind for 400 years; I
cant expect you to compete,
so I have to do something to
help you out. Interviews with
black intellectuals in the docu-
mentary agreed that this has
caused complacency in the
black community. In order to
re-empower the black identity,
The message is to take more
responsibility in what we think
about one another, Morton
said. A producer and director,
Morton is also the founder of
iYAGO Entertainment Group,
LLC, a multimedia production
company. He also established
Give Us Free Production Inc.,
a commercial production
company that produces inde-
pendent documentary flms
and videos for distribution. He
also serves as executive vice
president of JynxDaCat Pro-
ductions, a music production
company. Morton lives in Up-
per Marlboro, Maryland.

Michael Taber, the direc-
tor of the Colleges Paul H. Ni-
tze Scholars Program, which
is sponsoring Townsends
visits, also mentioned the
gender stereotypes that she
has experienced frsthand in
her career. In her tenure as
lieutenant governor, most of
[Townsends] activities fo-
cused on crime prevention
and economic development,
he said. Yet voters--both
those for her and those against
her--thought of her primarily
as having concentrated on ed-
ucation and child care. Why?
Well, because those are the
sorts of issues that women are
supposed to care about.
This is Townsends sec-
ond of four scheduled pub-
lic lectures at SMCM as the
Paul H. Nitze Senior Fellow
for 2007-08. Her frst lecture
was based on her book, Fail-
ing Americas Faithful: How
Todays Churches Are Mix-
ing God with Politics and
Losing Their Way, which was
published in 2007. Each year,
the College invites an accom-
plished writer, journalist, or
other professional fgure to
be the Nitze Senior Fellow
and to make several visits to
the campus. Last year, David
Sanger, New York Times chief
correspondent for the White
House, met with classes in
political science, economics,
and Nitze Program seminars,
and had a discussion with the
staff of The Point News about
careers in journalism. Previ-
ously, author Edward P. Jones
gave public readings from his
Pulitzer prize-winning novel,
The Known World, and joined
in on a panel about why writ-
ers write.

There are many advantages to senior citizens own-
ing a pet. Pets can bring purpose and meaning to a
senior who may be living far away from family or
friends by offering a sense of well-being, encourage-
ment, and even a reason for living. According to an
article by The Humane Society of the United States,
providing care and a loving home to a companion ani-
mal helps elderly people ease loneliness, combat isola-
tion, and remain active and healthy. The article states
that studies suggest contact with animals can lower
blood pressure.
Research also indicates that there is a link be-
tween pet ownership and an increased
survival rate for cardiac patients.
Other potential health benefts can
include decreased stress, reduced
bone loss, lowered cholesterol lev-
els, and improved blood circulation.
It is important that every pet own-
er, regardless of age, has the time and
means to care for a pet, both physically
and fnancially. Also, a pet should
never be given as an unexpected
surprise or gift. If you know of a
senior who may beneft from shar-
ing their life with a pet, it is best
to involve them in the selection pro-
cess. They could share their life with this
animal for ffteen to twenty years, so its
important that they choose a pet that is the best match for
them. Seniors may wish to consider adopting an adult dog or cat, who may be a better ft for their
lifestyle than the high-energy antics of a puppy or kitten.
The Tri-County Animal Shelter in Hughesville has many wonderful pets available for adop-
tion. If you or someone you know can beneft from sharing life with a companion animal, our
dedicated staff will help you fnd the best ft for your lifestyle. Visit us today!
