1 The Northwest Current Wednesday, August 9, 2017 Serving Chevy Chase, Colonial Village, Shepherd Park, Brightwood, Crestwood, Petworth & 16th Street Heights Vol. L, No. 32 SPARKLING ART Crowding squeezes Ward 3 schools Education: Wilson High facing particular pressure By GRACE BIRD Current Staff Writer When Kimberly Martin became principal of Wilson High three years ago, she frequently took phone calls from lottery hopefuls across the city, fielding questions about their prospects for landing a place at the sought-after school. Martin no longer takes those calls herself, delegating to staff the task of explaining the absence of open seats through the lottery. I wish I could have everyone, but I just can t, she told The Current on Monday during Ward 3 D.C. Council member Mary Cheh s annual school readiness tour, which evaluates schools each summer across her ward. Wilson High, located at 3950 Chesapeake St. NW, is bursting at the seams. Martin expects 1,900 students to walk through the doors next week, although the campus was built for 1,600. In recent years, Wilson s population has steadily grown from the 1,633 students enrolled in Meanwhile, the school has endured three consecutive years of budget cuts and more than 30 layoffs.

Northwest parks secure centennial grant funds By GRACE BIRD Current Staff Writer The National Park Service is celebrating its 100th birthday by awarding centennial challenge grants to six parks across Northwest D.C., the U.S. secretary of the interior announced last month. This year, Congress gave $20 million to national parks across the U.S., and park partners added another $33 million. Many of the national parks that Americans treasure today would simply not exist without the strong partnerships and philanthropy that have benefited the national park idea for over a century, acting National Park Service director Michael Reynolds said in a news release. Locally, the Northwest locations receiving funds are Chevy Chase Circle, a section of Rock Creek Park near Massachusetts Avenue, Dumbarton Oaks Amid plans to redevelop the Fannie Mae headquarters into a mixed-use complex, the project team received positive reception for its proposal to secure a landmark designation for the 1958 building at 3900 Wisconsin Ave. NW. Richard Lake, co-founder of Roadside Development, said he hopes that landmark status which would regulate and restrict alterations to the building would go a long way toward putting residents at ease with the large-scale development. The Roadside team lavished praise on the redbrick building, graciously set back from the street behind an open lawn, citing the quiet elegance of its architecture and its resemblance to Colonial Williamsburg. The company s plan includes renovating but generally maintaining the main 1958 building and replacing subsequent additions that sit behind it.

Park, the Lincoln Memorial, the Carter G. Woodson Home and Mount Vernon Triangle. At Chevy Chase Circle, sometimes called the gateway to the nation s capital, the park s friends group received $16,368 in government funds and matched that amount with an additional $17,705.

3 3 currentnewspapers.com The Current n ch g wednesday, August 9, Friendship Heights traffic safety under review By KATHERINE SALTZMAN Current Correspondent FANNIE MAE: Project discussed From Page 1 actually respond a little bit more to the landscaping, as opposed to doing it in the reverse, Lake said at the presentation. Whether or not Roadside s request for landmark status is successful, the development will move forward. Regardless of a designation, we would utilize and celebrate the structure and breathe new life into it, Lake said. In addition to the existing three-story Fannie Mae property, Roadside s project is set to include six new buildings up to eight stories high and two public amenities: a garden and a town square. For decades, Fannie Mae s sprawling front lawn has been closed to residents, but Roadside wants to change that. We want to make the space a public realm, Lake said. He imagines uses such as picnics, cultural performances, sculpture gardens, film screenings, ballet shows and festivals. Lake said such liveliness will drive patrons off Wisconsin Avenue to ensure commercial success. Angela Bradbery of Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3C (Cleveland Park, Massachusetts Avenue Heights, Woodley Park) sees a public garden as an excellent idea. She also said Lake and his team have been good about keeping people in the loop. Following the company s November acquisition of the property, Roadside has hosted three community meetings most recently, at McLean Gardens on Tuesday. In terms of retail, Roadside is considering adding a hotel, a health club, restaurants and shops to the complex. Most notably, Wegmans, a chain grocery store, has sent a notice of intent to Roadside indicating a strong interest in the site. Currently, Wegmans is set to occupy 80,000 square feet on the site, according to Lake. Due to the property s slope, Lake said, Wegmans would be partly underground, only partially visible from Wisconsin Avenue. The prospect of a new largescale supermarket has faced some resistance in the neighborhood. Earlier in the year, an online petition in protest of the planned supermarket garnered 60 signatures. While no one wants to see the building go unutilized, it is imperative that any redevelopment is done without the type of destination retail traffic that will grind our streets to a halt; be it big box, large scale grocer or otherwise, the petition reads. Preservation board member Gretchen Pfaehler agreed that a new Wegmans may pose traffic issues for residents, but said the subject is under the purview of the D.C. Department of Transportation. I can see a lot of conversations with DDOT in your future, Pfaehler said. According to Transportation Department spokesperson Maura Danehey, the site is in the early stages of a comprehensive review to assess the potential impact on roadways and suggest mitigation options. The site is being examined along with its neighbor at 4000 Wisconsin Ave. NW, which is also being redeveloped. ANC 3C plans to invite Roadside to a meeting after the company submits a large tract review application, Bradbery said. The company will also return to the Historic Preservation Review Board in late September. Roadside and the North America Sekisui House jointly acquired the 10-acre parcel for $89 million. Lake hopes to break ground soon after Fannie Mae vacates the space in January The D.C. Department of Transportation is evaluating possible traffic-calming measures in Friendship Heights in response to community concerns about vehicular and pedestrian safety in the area. As part of the initiative, the agency is conducting a neighborhood traffic safety study and collecting community input before submitting specific recommendations this fall for traffic-calming infrastructure, signage and street demarcations. Traffic-calming studies are usually a block-byblock assessment, specifically on local roadways, said Transportation Department engineer Emily Dalphy. Usually they look at traffic very piecemeal, but now we are looking at a more holistic approach. The study follows years of lobbying from Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3E (Friendship Heights, Tenleytown, American University Park). In 2012, ANC 3E called on the Transportation Department to evaluate speeding and traffic volume along 41st and 42nd streets NW, as well as limited northsouth traffic flow through the intersection of 42nd Street and Military Road and along 41st Street between Western Avenue and Davenport Street. On July 25, Dalphy and Daniel Marvin, a consultant from Kimley-Horn a planning and design consulting group presented analysis from the first phase of traffic data collection. Notable observations from the study, Marvin said, included numerous crashes at the intersection of Military Road and 42nd Street, as well as at Fessenden and 42nd streets. The study also included reports on high traffic along 41st and 42nd streets, which are designated as local streets that aren t intended for significant through traffic. The report also concluded that the intersection of 41st and Military Road has heavy congestion and limited time for vehicles to pass during rush hour. In addition, Marvin noted that restrictions on left turns at the intersection of Western and Wisconsin avenues results in significant neighborhood traffic congestion during rush hour. However, many in attendance spoke about high traffic volume and speeds on streets adjacent to the study area. We are presenting what we have gathered at the study and [outlining] what we are trying to study, Dalphy replied. We haven t made any recommendations yet, and we are trying to get as much community input [as possible] so this fall, when we try to make recommendations, we can move towards implementation without more concerns or complaints from residents.

Department of Transportation. The agency was due to begin closing sidewalks this past Sunday, and the closures will continue through Oct. 6, weather permitting, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Tuesday and Wednesday nights are reserved as alternate workdays. A sidewalk will always remain available on at least one side of the bridge, and pedestrians and bicyclists will be detoured there during the closures. Closing the sidewalks will allow for railings to be repaired and repainted as part of the ongoing Key Bridge Rehabilitation Project.

Developer PN Hoffman hopes to construct a condo building at the corner of 18th Street and Columbia Road NW, replacing the small bank building and much of the site s plaza space. Though some community members welcomed the modern architecture and the promise of fresh vitality, others opposed the plans scale and the loss of the plaza. After various design revisions, the project won Historic Preservation Review Board approval earlier this year. But the plaza remains an issue. Although it s privately owned, opponents contend that the space was set aside for community functions when The Current Delivered weekly to homes and businesses in Northwest Washington Publisher & Editor Davis Kennedy President & COO David Ferrara Managing Editor Chris Kain Assistant Managing Editor Brady Holt Dir. of Adv.

Superior Court Judge Todd Edelman has not yet decided the case, but his injunction freezes construction on the project until a verdict can be reached, according to a report by WAMU. The project team argues that the opponents are simply grasping at all possible straws to prevent the legitimate redevelopment of private property. The developer and SunTrust further contend that there was no formal guarantee that the plaza space currently used for the community s farmers market and other events would be available in perpetuity.

5 currentnewspapers.com The Current wednesday, August 9, SCHOOLS: Cheh tour documents overcrowding at Wilson, elsewhere From Page 1 per grade, one nurse for the entire school and a chaotic lunch period, Wilson can no longer accept outof-boundary students through the citywide lottery. To Martin, accepting students from around D.C. is crucial to maintaining Wilson s diversity. In a enrollment audit, 39 percent of students were African- American, 22 percent were Hispanic and 27 percent were white. The racial composition of many of Wilson s in-boundary neighborhoods is overwhelmingly Caucasian. Now, the school s out-ofboundary population is limited to students who won a slot at a school that feeds into Wilson and to siblings of current students which Martin fears may compromise the school s diversity. Next on Martin s agenda is lunchtime: Wilson has one break period when almost every corner of the school is available for students to roam, and the campus teems with 1,800 to 1,900 adolescents. To alleviate congestion, Martin is considering allowing younger grades to leave campus at lunchtime, as older students already do. Many Wilson parents are also concerned. In an to The Current, Amy Hall wrote that the school isn t built for the volume teachers and staff try to police, but it gets chaotic they re practically full grown adult bodies who are still mostly kids, things can get rowdy. However, Hall is clear: Limiting out-of-boundary students is not the answer. Cheh stopped at Wilson on Monday afternoon as part of her readiness tour. Eleven years ago, when Cheh began visiting every public school in her ward as a newly elected legislator, she d uncover scores of startling deficiencies. These days, D.C. public schools have improved, and Cheh s tours are sometimes more ceremonial than a dire necessity. But this year, with Wilson s budget cuts and amid overcrowding concerns throughout Ward 3 schools, Cheh s visit held a particular weight. As Cheh walked through Wilson, she noticed many defects six years after the completion of extensive renovations at the Tenleytown school: Ceiling leaks, faded walls, missing railings and broken emergency call buttons. In some cases, problems had lingered for two or three years. But it s not all bad news for Wilson. Despite dealing with adversities, the school s results are relatively strong, with many graduates going on to attend some of the country s prestigious colleges and universities. Rising senior Derek Stevens, who grew up in Northeast and recently moved to Tenleytown, spoke of Wilson in glowing terms. I love it. The teachers care about you, Stevens said in an interview. He intends to leave D.C. for college next year, hopefully with a football scholarship. However, Stevens agreed that lunchtimes at Wilson are raucous. He rarely joins the endless cafeteria line. No way. It gets crazy, he said. Overcrowding isn t unique to Wilson. Most schools in Ward 3 are at or over capacity and converting extra-curricular spaces to Brian Kapur/The Current Ward 3 D.C. Council member Mary Cheh began her annual school readiness tour Thursday. classrooms and installing playground trailers are short-term solutions. The city is looking into the situation. D.C. Public Schools has taken important steps to evaluate and address rising enrollment in Ward 3 schools, spokesperson Janae Hinson wrote in an . Starting in the fall, DCPS leadership will use all feedback gathered to identify next steps and possible solutions to pursue. At some schools there are few options left. Janney Elementary School at 4130 Albemarle St. NW, for example, has doubled in capacity over the past decade, and yet this year 730 students have enrolled 80 more than it was built for. To accommodate five classes per grade, Janney recently eliminated one of its three pre-k classes. According to Janney s director of strategy and logistics, Ann Beumel, when the school was renovated and expanded, administrators hoped it would welcome a larger out-of-boundary population. However, the renovations attracted so many nearby families that students from elsewhere in the city were largely squeezed out. Right now, there s not as much diversity, Beumel said. According to a audit, threequarters of Janney s students are white, and 93 percent are inboundary. While enrollment at Janney has somewhat stabilized, the neighborhood has a number of developments underway, the city continues to swell and land is at a premium. I mean, I don t know where you would build, Beumel said. About six years ago, Key Elementary at 5001 Dana Place NW installed two trailers on the lawn for its fifth-graders. While in previous years, each trailer accommodated between 18 and 20 children, this year, the fifth-grade classes are expected to have 23 students each. And 20 would ve been big, principal David Landeryou told Cheh at her inspection last week. When you walk in, you can just feel it s a lot smaller, Landeryou said of the trailers. Cheh was similarly dismayed by the prospect of overcrowded trailers. Well, they ll manage, but it s not a sustainable situation, Cheh told Landeryou. Given that Key Elementary s two incoming kindergarten classes have 27 students apiece, Landeryou said, it s likely that enrollment will continue to swell. To address overcrowding issues, Cheh said she plans to send a letter to Bowser detailing the situation facing Ward 3 public schools, and requesting an additional $1 million for Wilson. Whether it eventuates into anything real, I don t know, Cheh said. After his February appointment, Wilson convened a community working group to address issues faced by Ward 3 public schools. The group plans to give recommendations to the city in November for consideration in the 2019 fiscal year budget, according to member Brian Doyle, co-chair of the Ward 3-Wilson Feeder Education Network. The situation is not sustainable, Doyle said in an interview. We re going to have to get creative.

6 6 Wednesday, August 9, 2017 the Current currentnewspapers.com The Current Davis Kennedy/Publisher & Editor Chris Kain/Managing Editor Answers needed When Mayor Muriel Bowser put together her budget proposal this spring, she made the curious choice to limit investment in education offering a 1.5 percent increase in per-pupil funds over last year, not enough to keep up with inflation and rising expenses. The result of this budget, according to education advocates, would have been widespread staff layoffs and larger class sizes. We greatly appreciate that the D.C. Council managed to identify another $11.5 million, enough to double that increase to 3 percent. But spending that money remains in the hands of the executive branch and it s unclear that the Bowser administration, including new Schools Chancellor Antwan Wilson, intends to distribute it the way the council intended. A particular concern affects Wilson High, the District s largest public high school and one of its most successful. There, the mayor s initial budget proposal would have caused as many as nine positions to be eliminated. Carrying that out would run counter to the council s clearly stated goal in identifying further funding: restoring instructional staff and programs at schools. Even so, instead of using the money to fill in existing gaps, Chancellor Wilson said he intends to make additional strategic investments to citywide programs, schools with the greatest need and students who are struggling the most. Furthermore, the chancellor told the Wilson High community that based on conversations with the principal, the school is already positioned well even without extra funds. By looking at Wilson High as a Ward 3 school with respectable test scores and graduation rates, it s easy for an outsider to overlook its high numbers of at-risk students who attend from around the District a trap we hope the new chancellor avoids. Given Wilson High s staggering enrollment level, the total number of students who are struggling is comparable to the enrollment at some entire high schools. Furthermore, D.C. Public Schools should be working to strengthen successful programs such as Wilson, not starving them of resources. Many community members and elected officials are asking why Wilson High is facing a de facto budget cut. With the start of the school year rapidly approaching, Chancellor Wilson has released only generalizations about his plans and vague assurances that the school is adequately funded. Even if the mayor and chancellor insist that the school suffer staffing reductions, they must provide a clearer answer as to where the council s allocation is going instead, and why. Wilson High not only educates around 1,800 young people every year, but citywide trust in the program also encourages numerous families to move to and remain in the District. Even uncertainty about the school is enough to lose some families. We urge the administration to limit the damage. Officials must provide answers and adequate funding for Wilson High. A favorable review The District s flourishing economy just got another welcome boost: last week s announcement that Yelp will open a an East Coast headquarters here in D.C. with an estimated 500 new employees. Notably, at least half of the new positions will be targeted for D.C. residents. Yelp a website and mobile app where users submit reviews and other information about local businesses is based in San Francisco and also has five other offices in the U.S. and Europe. The company will open a 52,000-square-foot Penn Quarter office later this year. A news release from Mayor Muriel Bowser s office says that Yelp chose to locate here due to the city s thriving technology community, talented workforce, and its proximity to other East Coast cities. The release doesn t mention another top reason: The District waived the first five years of Yelp s D.C. corporate taxes, among other tax incentives worth millions of dollars, according to a Washington Post report. We don t think this tax deal is anything to hide. On the contrary, the District s tech incentive program available to a host of businesses, not just Yelp is a valuable tool for diversifying the local economy. Further, the District expects to rake in as much as $20 million in taxes from Yelp during its 12-year lease in the city, even after the incentives are subtracted, according to the Post. When an incentive waives future taxes rather than providing cash upfront, the District is well-protected. Even if Yelp underperforms in local hiring and tax revenue as in the infamous LivingSocial case it will still be a welcome boost to D.C. s economy and reputation. Curb your (parking) enthusiasm! Big changes tough new restrictions and enforcement could be coming to curbside parking in the District. For all you casual drivers, a lot of curbside parking may disappear, especially downtown. Or, it may become so expensive it ll force private cars like yours into parking garages. Delivery trucks that now park most anywhere and at any time could face higher, prohibitive fines if they fail to use loading zone spaces. All sorts of illegal truck and bus parking is a problem all over the city, not just downtown. Illegal parking in rush-hour lanes by anyone morning and night could be met with tougher fines and quicker towing. (Your Notebook has regularly complained about the absence of rush-hour enforcement.) Ride-hailing services like Uber, Lyft and even conventional taxicabs may get pickup and dropoff spots rather than the Wild West system now in play where everyone and anyone parks willy-nilly. Commuter and tourist buses may find they can t just park in any lane at any time. Even the city s laughable non-enforcement of illegal parking in bike lanes could change. All this is from D.C. Department of Transportation director Leif Dormsjo whose last day on the job is this Friday. He disclosed the broad outline of these coming changes on Kojo Nnamdi s WAMU Politics Hour. The plan is already underway in terms of development, Dormsjo said in response to our well-worn complaints that the city has given up on traffic enforcement, especially during morning and evening rush hours. Dormsjo said, There s going to be a proposal this fall that focuses not just on [changes in the law] but... opportunities to really dedicate city personnel to that traffic enforcement function. Dormsjo said Mayor Muriel Bowser asked him and other department heads to come up with a plan to attack traffic problems. Dormsjo said he didn t want to get ahead of Bowser s final decisions and announcement later this fall, but he acknowledged that the level of enforcement which is the responsibility of the Department of Public Works has fallen behind his own agency s successful efforts to change signal-timing on hundreds of traffic lights, to restripe lanes for better flow, and to reconstruct intersections and bike lanes to minimize backups and safety concerns. Private car parking in curb lanes could face dramatic change. This growing city can t let hundreds of thousands of cars just park like it s Sunday afternoon. I think the whole way we envision the use of the curbside is going to change, Dormsjo said. And I frankly think that, whether it s ride-hailing services or trucks making deliveries or postal carriers, we re probably going to use our curbside spaces for those types of users and people who are just driving in and out of the city are really LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Harsh LED lighting has myriad dangers The Current s Aug. 2 article Push for LED street lighting sees resistance stated that a growing number of advisory neighborhood commissions and citizens associations have adopted resolutions based on concerns that high-kelvin LEDs cast a bright, harsh light that going to have to park in a garage. To make that happen, he said, the pricing and regulation of those spaces have to evolve to meet the modern transportation that we have. There should be a shift...that you ll see in the character of our curbsides. He suggested that some changes could be immediate, but the ultimate makeover of the city s street space could take several years. Redskins vs. Ravens.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled this year that trademark names can t be taken away, or denied, just because they re seen as offensive to some. That legal case is over, but the name controversy is expected to linger. Owner Dan Snyder is trying to figure out where he might build a new stadium. Mayor Bowser and other city leaders want Snyder to build at the old RFK site. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is lobbying for the team to head to his state. He d like a deal done or at least announced before he leaves office in January. McAuliffe says the team name is not an issue in Virginia. But District officials and D.C. Council members could hamper any move to D.C. because of the name. But Snyder holds an ace in the Trump administration. The RFK site is controlled by the federal government. Under President Obama, the Interior Department indicated it wasn t interested in dealing with the team given the name controversy. That likely won t be a problem under Trump. And finally A nice moment here in the District last Saturday night. Former D.C. Council member and mayoral candidate David Catania wed his longtime partner, William Billy Enright. The two exchanged vows at the National Museum of Women in the Arts downtown. Ward 3 Council member Mary Cheh officiated. A large crowd toasted the couple and wished them well. As an at-large council member in 2009, Catania authored the bill to establish same-sex marriages in the District. Despite strong opposition from the Catholic Church and other groups, the bill easily passed in December that year and became law in early Only a few states had yet legalized equal marriage. Many thought Congress might intervene and block the city law, but it did not. In 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of same-sex marriage, nullifying state laws and constitutional amendments against it. No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family, Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote in the majority opinion. Congrats to Billy and David. Tom Sherwood, a Southwest resident, is a political reporter for News 4. TOM SHERWOOD S NOTEBOOK can interfere with sleep. This is true, but greatly understates the concerns. This is a safety issue for drivers and pedestrians, which is why the American Medical Association recommended the lowest emission of blue light possible to reduce glare. The association has further warned that blue-rich LED lights are potentially harmful to human health because of their impact on circadian sleep cycles. Interference with circadian sleep cycles is implicated in higher rates of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. This isn t simply about some lost sleep but is a serious and significant public health and safety issue. Lastly, the blue-rich (4000 Kelvin) LED lights proposed are incredibly ugly and have all the ambience of a prison yard. Our energy savings and lighting goals can be safely achieved with warm-white LED streetlights that are 3000 Kelvin or less (ideally 2700 Kelvin). Doug Barker Crestwood

7 n ch g Northwest Sports Athletics in Northwest Washington The Current August 9, 2017 Page 7 Former Gonzaga Eagle chasing quarterbacks, gridiron dreams By BRIAN KAPUR Current Staff Writer At Saturday s Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement, honoree Kurt Warner discussed his unlikely path to immortality stocking grocery shelves as he failed to make the cut with several teams, then becoming a star quarterback. While his story is one that most Hollywood directors would throw out as too improbable, the narrative of fringe roster players clawing for a coveted spot on the team is one that happens every day. For former Gonzaga Eagles star defensive lineman A.J. Francis, it s a battle that he has fought since he went undrafted in There are 53 spots on the active roster. Twenty-five guys have a guaranteed lockedin job, Francis said. The other guys could be gone tomorrow. It s no different for me than the other 28 guys. You just have to come in and put your best foot forward. You can t stress on it; if you do, it could eat you alive. For the former Eagle, the path to the NFL has been a long journey. Undrafted in 2013, Francis was picked up by the Miami Dolphins as a free agent that year but was cut at the end of training camp. The former Gonzaga star was then picked up by the Patriots and added to the team s practice squad at the start of the 2013 season. Later that year, the Dolphins signed him off the Patriots practice squad NFL teams are free to sign players with that designation as long as they are added to the active roster. After being cut once again by Miami, Francis was picked up by the Seattle Seahawks in 2015 and later added to the team s practice squad. He eventually made it to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2016, where he spent training camp and was once again a late cut before the start of the year. That s when his hometown Redskins came calling and added him to their squad on Oct. 12 last year. Francis has bounced between the team s practice squad and active rosters, but has relished the chance to be close to his family during the season. It s been good; I get to see my family a lot more, Francis said. I travel wherever the team is even though I bought a house in Orlando. I see my family more than when I lived in Maryland. It s been good to be back home. I get to be at more events. Last year I went to Thanksgiving with my family for the first time since I started in the NFL. The two lessons Francis has learned during his time in the NFL are that you can t dwell on mistakes and you have to find ways to show up on film when the coaches review practices and games. A lot of rookies have trouble with it myself included, when I was a rookie. You get too worried about being perfect every day, not realizing tomorrow you are doing the same thing, he said. Sometimes you have to take a shot. If you have an idea and you think something might work, don t be afraid to do it. You could lose your job tomorrow anyway because four people at a different position got injured. There is nothing wrong with going out and balling every day. Since Francis first joined the Dolphins, he has seen action in just three regular-season games. With the Redskins, who struggled along the defensive line last year, Francis has a strong chance to join a position that is very much in flux. The Redskins made several moves up front this offseason, including letting their best lineman Chris Baker leave in free agency and cutting Ricky Jean Francois. The team drafted Jonathan Allen in the first round and picked up Terrell McClain in free agency. On Aug. 6, the Redskins released their first unofficial depth chart of the preseason and Francis was listed as the backup tackle. I ve had a really good camp. I ve been making a lot of plays, Francis said. The D-line in general has had a really good camp and a lot of guys have shown up on film. We are really adapting and molding into what coach Jim Tomsula wants us to be. He s a hell of a coach. He has gotten the best out of everyone in the room. He has been one of my favorite coaches that I have played for. I appreciate all of the opportunities he s given me and all of the other guys in the room. Francis is one of four former Gonzaga stars in the NFL. At one point, the Gonzaga quartet Francis, quarterback Kevin Hogan (Cleveland Browns), defensive back Johnson Bademosi (Detroit Lions) and linebacker Cam Johnson (Cleveland Browns) were all teammates on I Street NW. While Gonzaga is well-represented, the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference overall has produced a slew of NFL players, including three of his current Redskins teammates: defensive backs Lou Young and Kendall Fuller, who played at Good Counsel, and former DeMatha star offensive lineman Arie Kouandjio. We talk about it sometimes and the WCAC. They bring up that I never beat Good Counsel or DeMatha, said Francis. I always bring up the fact that I always kicked their O-line s ass. I might not have won the game, but I won the position battle. We talk a lot of trash. Francis, who carved out a name for himself in the D.C. area after playing at Gonzaga and the University of Maryland, has Brian Kapur/The Current Former Gonzaga and University of Maryland defensive line star A.J. Francis is vying for a spot on the Washington Redskins this summer. Francis entered the NFL in also established a brand for himself by being informed and involved in things he is passionate about politics, professional wrestling and music. His debut hip-hop album, O.T.A., is already available for preorder on itunes under the name Fran. I m just me, he said when asked about his off-the-field successes. People ask me why you make music my album comes out Sept. 8. I ve been making music since I was 11. I ve been playing football since I was 13. Francis is also unabashed when it comes to taking political stances on his Twitter which boasts more than 11,000 followers. Francis has shown support for embattled quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who protested by kneeling during the national anthem last season and has yet to sign with a team. The Redskins lineman has also shown favor to Trump critics, Brian Kapur/Current file photo Four former Gonzaga stars who are now in the NFL from left: Kevin Hogan, Johnson Bademosi, A.J. Francis and Cam Johnson, shown with Gonzaga president Rev. Stephen W. Planning returned to I Street last fall as honorary captains for a playoff game. and he described former President Barack Obama as an idol in a happy birthday tweet on Aug. 4. My undergrad is in undergrad politics and my master s is in international security and economic policies, Francis said. I m not just someone on the internet talking because I have a voice. I m an informed person that goes out and researches everything they say and doesn t put their foot in their mouth. While he does speak out, he knows he must pick his words well, which is why he prides himself on being in the know. I understand that one false statement can cost you your career, Francis said. It s not just football players. It s basketball players, it s politicians well, not really anymore; it used to be politicians. There are a lot of people that go on the internet and say foolish things and it gets them in trouble. Francis also gets his pro wrestling fix by co-hosting Jobbing Out, a podcast available on itunes. On that show, he talks about news from the wrestling world and predicts the outcome of matches, such as the upcoming WWE Summerslam pay-per-view on Aug. 20. He already has scenarios in mind for the main event, which features former Ultimate Fighting Championship stalwart and current World Wrestling Entertainment champion Brock Lesnar, who is rumored to be leaving the wrestling ring for the mixed martial arts octagon. As Francis tells it: One of two things happens if Brock Lesnar is going to do the joint UFC and WWE thing again, he wins. If he is going to UFC, I think Braun Stowman wins. Francis will continue his own fight to make the Redskins roster this week, when he puts on the No. 69 jersey and the team travels to battle the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

9 currentnewspapers.com the current wednesday, august 9, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA OFFICE ON AGING NEWS Spotlight on Community Living Wednesday, August May 10, 9, 2017 Serving D.C. residents who are age 18+ with a disability or age 60+ and their caregivers Vol 6, 6, No 58 Executive Director s Message Laura Newland I hope everyone is enjoying the summer, it s definitely my favorite time of year. There s something about the season that brings back memories of my childhood spent with my grandparents: playing in their backyard, watching my grandpa tinkering in his garage, playing cards with my grandma, sneaking hard candies from the candy jar, pulling endless weeds for a couple of bucks and eating concord grapes straight off the vine. I can still feel my grandpa s handlebar mustache on my cheek when I hugged him and my grandma s soft cheek and faint smell that I can only describe as what she smelled like. Last month, I took a trip back home to celebrate my parents 45th wedding anniversary. My anniversary gift to them was a set of Adirondack chairs I built myself. My grandfather was a carpenter, and my dad and my brothers are very handy. We say sometimes that we get things done the Newland way meaning it s not always pretty, it s probably not conventional, and it s certainly not perfect, but it s functional and done. Growing up on a small farm, I was ready to be done with all things that required getting my hands dirty by the time I got to college. I can still look at a hay field and get flashbacks of pieces of hay poking everywhere, sweating in the high summer heat, and then sweating some more in barns with little air circulation. So I moved to one city and then another, building a life where I spent most of my summers in buildings that have the air conditioning on too cold. One day looking for a coffee table I thought to myself, maybe I could make something nicer than what I can afford to buy. And the thought alone made me think of my grandpa who could make and fix anything (or it seemed like it anyway). My grandpa passed away, but he seemed to be with me when I made my very first coffee table (the Newland way, of course). I decided to make the chairs for my parents although I had not touched my tools in a very long time. It was as much a gift of my time as anything else. And I think I wanted to remind them, and myself, that no matter where I live, I carry their gifts, and their parents gifts with me. I m still discovering what my grandparents mean to me, years after they passed away. Just their presence in my life gave me direction, helped me develop life skills, and taught me empathy at a young age. These connections are not just important within our families, they are the foundation of our communities. What older generations provide goes beyond the skills, knowledge, and experiences they share. Sometimes, simply being present has an impact that can t be measured in figures and data. Our older adults teach us how to be human, whether they are relatives, friends, neighbors or teachers. I talk a lot about what makes a community and how can government support community. We know that supporting seniors is key to ensuring that our communities are strong and resilient. That s why the D.C. Office on Aging is so focused on programs that support our older residents as they continue living in their own homes and communities. Our network of 20 communitybased organizations, including Lead Agencies in every ward are driven by the same common goal of keeping our seniors active, healthy and engaged in their communities. For as long as we can provide services that will help you remain at home, we know the entire community benefits and we are doing our part in improving the quality of life for all ages. It s your lifetime of experience, your presence, and your values that are the cornerstones of community. This summer, I encourage you to spend more time building these bonds and connecting with our younger generations. And give us a call at to learn more about DCOA programs.

These include Sunrise on Connecticut Avenue; Chevy Chase House; Forest Hills of DC; Forest Side, for people with memory loss; Ingleside at Rock Creek; Knollwood, for military families; and Regency House (public housing). The D.C. government offers some programs to help seniors make their homes more accessible and safer through projects such as installation of bathroom grab bars and stair railings; the D.C. Office on Aging will cover the costs for people with annual incomes under $67,000. As long as the proper paperwork is filed with the Office of Tax and Revenue, property taxes are cut in half for seniors with annual household incomes under $128,000, while those with incomes under $60,000 can defer their property taxes without interest until they sell their homes. The District also operates several wellness centers offering seniors a wide range of activities, such as classes in nutrition, exercise and health.

Still others met her through the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., where she directed the book and literary series in the years after she closed her shop in And black businesswomen in D.C. knew her as a strong advocate. But for those of us who live in Shepherd Park, we knew Rosemary as a neighbor, a mother, a grandmother, a hardworking neighborhood activist and a fundraiser for community efforts. She belonged to Concerned Neighbors Inc. and served a term as its president. She loved the organization s Valentine dance and often made an entrance in an item from her boutique. She also belonged to the Shepherd Park Citizens Association and represented the organization at citywide citizen congresses. When her two children and her grandson were attending Shepherd Elementary School, Rosemary supported them with their studies, and the school s PTA with donations to the school s annual auction. She was proud of her children, Sabrina and Paul, as they found their places in business and the arts. She loved to share news of their accomplishments like Paul s latest music or book productions or his artist residency at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Rosemary was passionate about her efforts business, community and personal. Sometimes feisty, she was a presence and she ll be missed. June Confer hood-specific amendment calls for preventing the proliferation of fast-food chains, self-service gas stations, convenience stores and other drive-thru businesses on upper Georgia Avenue. Commissioners would also discourage excessive concentrations of liquor-licensed establishments along local shopping streets and would like to see stronger and more consistent code enforcement of apartment buildings. Additionally, commissioners recommend market studies of upper Georgia Avenue and Kennedy Street to evaluate strategies to retain local retailers and identify locations for new stores. ANC 4A s other proposals included maintaining zoning regulations limiting the conversion of housing units to multi-family or non-residential uses, developing plans to conserve the area s historic properties and discouraging teardowns in single-family and row-house developments. Citywide, the commission proposed establishing preferential hiring for District residents, providing incentives for geographically dispersed knowledge cluster employment, and focusing technology attraction efforts where appropriate infrastructure such as fiber-optic cable is already in place. School-related recommendations include considering potential negatives when private schools move into a community, discouraging taking open space away from schools for private development in exchange for school reconstruction, and requiring new schools to include green construction and energy efficiency. Regarding infrastructure, the commission said the plan should include modernizing the sewer and wastewater system as well as the aging water distribution system. It requested a pilot program to relocate all utility wires underground, and suggested using Colonial Village and Manor Park as test cases. It also called for supporting community and residential solar projects and for recognizing solar easements in land-use decisions. The commission also said it would like to see developers of large sites contribute public art that costs at least 1 percent of the project s total construction costs. The commission does not have a regular meeting scheduled in August. The commission will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 5, in the community meeting room at the 4th District Police Headquarters, 6001 Georgia Ave. NW.

11 Northwest Real Estate A Look at the Market in Northwest Washington The Current August 9, 2017 Page 11 Classic Northwest home features a storied past No, George Washington did not sleep here. But Count Sergei Tolstoy great-grandson of Leo was a ON THE MARKET SUSAN BODIKER frequent overnight guest at 3201 Garfield St. NW, allegedly invited by one of the young ladies who lived there at the time. The home, built in 1922, also served as one of the original sites for NATO before it was relocated to Brussels. The property provided both office space and housing for the institution s mission organizations. Set up on a rise and surrounded by appealingly lush and naturalistic landscaping, the elegant brick home offers three levels of living space and includes four bedrooms, four-anda-half baths, a wood-burning fireplace, two spacious flagstone patios one with a pergola and a two-car garage (located right on Garfield). Unique architectural details throughout the home include archways, recessed display spaces, whimsical garden sculpture and custom cabinetry. Susan Bodiker/The Current The home features a variety of unique design details. The property is on the market for $1,795,000. A flagstone path leads to the front door where a lunette window nicely balances out the circular steps at the entry. Inside, a marble-floored foyer opens into a circular floor plan with the formal living room to the left, the staircase straight ahead and the formal dining room to the right a perfect flow for entertaining. Both rooms feature large built-in cabinets, walls of oversized windows and unique halfmirrored V-shaped bay windows that extend the space and enhance the view.

15 Shopping & Dining in D.C. Lifestyles, Retail and Restaurants in Northwest Washington The Current August 9, 2017 Page 15 Top Chef veteran returns to D.C. to open restaurant Petworth native strives to provide affordable cusine By ANDRIA MOORE Current Correspondent Top Chef star Brian Hill is bringing his talent for cooking back to his hometown, with Chef Brian s Comfort Kitchen due to open Thursday. Located downtown in the Golden Triangle, the restaurant will offer classic American cuisine with Caribbean and Asian influences. Hill grew up in Petworth but has lived in Los Angeles for the past 15 years. Hill, a contestant on the first season of Bravo s Top Chef, also appeared on Bar Rescue on Spike and was a regular on Private Chefs of Beverly Hills on the Food Network. The culinary Kanye, as Hill calls himself, said he wants to bring his cuisine to D.C. because it is important for him to offer his community the comforts he did not have as a child. He said he wants those with lower incomes to be able to afford his food. He plans to serve dishes such as tequila-lime, oven-roasted chicken with oven-roasted mashed yams for around $12. I grew up poor, Hill said. I couldn t graduate from college, because I couldn t afford to pay for my books. I knew people that couldn t afford fast casual places. Growing up in poverty, it was hard for Hill to imagine a life of success. When you come from where I come from where they shoot at night on your block, where you used to eat Tootsie Rolls for dinner, where your mother tells you you won t ever be anything, and you graduate from high school and are homeless but where people kept telling me, There s something special about you, Hill said. I looked around and thought, there s something more. Hill s family, including his five brothers and sisters, were evicted from their home in 2002 and began receiving welfare assistance after their father left. As an impressionable 9-year-old, Hill was left with a skewed understanding of family. Hill started cooking around age 13. He learned how to grill and sauté, and to make meals that his younger sister would enjoy. He didn t view cooking as a career until after dropping out of college at Temple University and moving to Los Angeles. There, he began helping other chefs with their businesses hosting events and catering for parties, and operating a food truck. Those people would know more people, and they would tell their friends, Hill said. Then came this one woman who loved my catfish. And she told me, I want you to work for my boss. Hill was skeptical, assuming the offer wasn t concrete, but decided to show up at the address she gave him to meet the potential client. It turned out to be actor and comedian Eddie Murphy, and Hill immediately got the job. I cooked for him and his kids for a year, Hill said. I made him everything he loved, and the only thing he didn t like was cilantro. But Hill said it was cooking for music star Mary J. Blige that made him who he is today. Not only did she love his food, but she taught me the art of conversation. Mary J. Blige is the reason I m Chef Brian, Hill said. Hill grilled and roasted for Blige, but on her cheat day he would make her favorite dish: golden-fried chicken sliders with Brian Kapur/The Current The new restaurant at th St. NW is due for a soft-open on Thursday. paprika and tarragon mayo, a fan favorite he plans to offer in his new restaurant. Hill plans to do a soft-open, letting customers come in and sample his food before purchasing, saying that he hopes to offer a higher focus on customer service than other restaurants. Is the customer always right? No, but you have to fix problems for the customer, he said. Hill isn t too worried about people enjoying his food, however. You can t get what I make anywhere else, Hill said. I m giving what I m giving, and you re going to love it. Chef Brian s Comfort Kitchen is scheduled to open Aug. 10 at th St. NW. Local Restaurant Week deals to start Aug. 14 Summer Restaurant Week will return Aug. 14 through 20, with 250 restaurants in the greater Washington area offering fixed-price, multi-course meals. Participating eateries will offer $35 dinner and $22 brunch and lunch menus. This year, Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington, which organizes the event, is partnering with Capital Area Food Bank and participating restaurants to raise funds for area residents in need, according to a news release. Some of the restaurants involved in Summer Restaurant Week have opted to donate part of their proceeds from the week to the food bank, which helps more than 500,000 people annually get access to food through a network of 444 nonprofit partners across the region. A full list of participating restaurants and menus is available at rwdmv.com. The site also provides an option to make reservations and identifies restaurants that are partnering with the food bank.

This neighborhood is an ideal first location for Massage Envy s initial expansion into D.C., KLNB principal Ben Becker said in the release, adding that his firm hopes to further amplify the chain s presence in the District. Georgetown gourmet shop hires new chef The Italian gourmet shop Via Umbria in Georgetown has hired Liam LaCivita as its new executive chef. LaCivita closed Bar Civita, his Italian restaurant in Woodley Park, at the end of July to assume the new position. Via Umbria s owners, Suzy and Bill Menard have known LaCivita for years, and are excited to have him overseeing the culinary program and also serve as a culinary host for their visiting guest chefs from Umbria, spokesperson Elaine Mazanec wrote in a release. LaCivita s contributions to the offerings at the 1525 Wisconsin Ave. NW store include fresh doughnuts on the weekends, as well as breads and cheeses made in-house. He and his pastry team have added cannoli, sfogliatelle and other fresh Italian pastries to the store s cafe, and they have revised the store s a la carte menus.

I was humbled and honored that I was asked, Ferrier, a Glover Park resident, told The Current. After securing a mural artist, the Vosses began community outreach. We talked to a ton of different people and set up an online survey, Stephen Voss said. We re in Tenleytown and our overall sense was that this should showcase the history. Tenleytown was an existing community prior to the District s creation, making it one of D.C. s oldest neighborhoods, second only to Georgetown. The mural will be called Celebrating Tenleytown s History: Past and Present. Mural designs went through several phases, and each time Ferrier and the Vosses requested community feedback. Prominent features on the mural will include Civil War stronghold Fort Reno PARKS: Matching grants awarded From Page 1 money will be used to restore bench seating for up to 200 people lining the outskirts of the circle, according to the friends group s president, Ruth Robbins. Many of the benches, installed in 1956, do not have a seat rail and are skeletal, she said. The group raised the money by sending 6,000 letters to neighbors asking for donations. And people responded, Robbins said. We had a 5 percent return rate, which is unheard of. Barbara Price conceived the circle project in 1992, and for 14 years she and a group of friends worked to reimagine the dilapidated park. After Price left the area in 2006, restoration efforts waned. Then, in 2014, Robbins resurrected the friends group and secured nonprofit tax status. Since then, the group has been working to restore and maintain the circle. On April 17, Robbins group planted six new willows courtesy of Casey Trees, to complete a complement of 30 trees around the circle. Then, in May, the group held a pruning party where more than 40 volunteers helped trim the circle s newly planted azaleas. Also, two overgrown traffic triangles were recently freshened up by landscaping company Kristina Kent Garden Design. Efforts to restore Chevy Chase Circle may have lapsed for several years, but Robbins has no plans now to slow down. Members will soon turn their attention to the curb lining the circle, which Robbins said is only a few inches wide, leaving the circle susceptible to damage from car crashes. However, this effort is complicated by the fact that the circle sits along the and a Union soldier; Reno City as a community for freed slaves; and the historic fire station with a sign that reads Welcome to Tenleytown. Ferrier will also paint a silhouette of a band in homage of the 40-plus years of free concerts at Fort Reno, along with the D.C. flag, the Fort Reno water tower, the Tenleytown streetcar that made the neighborhood more accessible to downtown D.C., a segment of the Metrorail system map and the D.C. public schools in the area. A recent addition to the mural s design is Ferrier s idea to highlight the businesses that have inhabited 4425 Wisconsin Ave. NW, the oldest commercial building in Tenleytown. During the installation process, Stephen Voss is hoping to bring in students from local D.C. schools to talk to Ferrier about art and the history of the city. He then plans to invite residents and city officials to a mural unveiling on Sept. 30. Maryland-D.C. line, forcing coordination among federal, District and Maryland authorities. Robbins also has her sights set on restoring the circle s aging fountain, although such an effort would cost about $500,000. The Rock Creek Conservancy also won centennial grant funding to restore a woodland area near Rock Creek Parkway, Massachusetts Avenue and Whitehaven Street NW. The group received $17,000 in federal funds, and raised an additional $71,000 in cash and in-kind donations. With these funds, Rock Creek Conservancy plans to remove at least 17 invasive species, as well as plant several hundred native trees courtesy of Casey Trees. Next on the calendar is a volunteer tree-planting day, with a date to be announced soon, said conservancy spokesperson Katy Cain. Meanwhile, Georgetown s Dumbarton Oaks Conservancy received $320,000 from the federal government to alleviate problems caused by stormwater runoff from nearby properties, and the conservancy is currently raising funds to match that amount. The runoff pollutes the park s waterways and damages roots of trees and shrubs, according to conservancy president Lindsey Milstein. The first phase of work has been underway since June of last year, with a scientific and engineering consulting firm contracted at a base fee of $130,000. Potential design solution include building landform structures to slow the flow of water, directing water into new pools fitted with permeable materials, and retaining runoff in ponds and wetlands. The project is scheduled to wrap up by the end of next year.
