Ex Virginia governor helps Howard County candidate

Ex Virginia governor helps Howard County candidate

Thursday was not a good day for the last governor of Virginia as Bob McDonnell was found guilty of corruption in a Richmond courtroom. But another former Republican governor of Virginia, George Allen, had a better day of it in Howard County, talking up the candidacy of state Senate hopeful Jody Venkatesan in District 13 and other candidates at a Clarksville ballroom. “There were a lot of folks from Maryland who helped me out” in his successful race for governor of Virginia 20 years ago, Allen told a crowd of about 50, and he was happy to return the favor. Venkatesan is running against Democratic Del. Guy Guzzone for the seat now held by retiring Democratic Sen. Jim Robey. In 2010, Venkatesan lost the Republican primary for the seat that represents much of eastern and southern Howard County, but ran unopposed in June. “In every way, Jody is running on the issues that matter...

There but for the grace of . . .

There but for the grace of . . .

  Once when I was investigating a politician in Laredo, Texas my wife and I had to spend the night at the county clerk’s home after someone shot up our house. I never found out if the two activities were related, or whether I was the victim of a random drive-by shooting. In San Antonio while spending the night in a low-income housing project someone shot at his uncle just outside the window of the house I was staying in – apparently upset his uncle had taken the last beer out of a six pack. The bloody knee-cap on the ground was a mute witness to the shooting. People threatened to shoot me once while covering a miner’s strike in Kentucky. In Texas, while covering gang violence some of the gang members waved loaded guns at me. Another time shots rang out in my general vicinity and I took cover. When I was at America’s...

Hate, Death and Destruction

  “The day will come – and it is not far off – when the legacy of Lincoln will finally be fulfilled at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue when a black man or woman will sit in the Oval Office. When that day comes, the most remarkable thing about it will be how naturally it occurs.” – George H.W. Bush, 1990. “They are demons set loose on earth to lower the standards . . . make no mistake about it.” – Comedian Bill Hicks, 1991 Yesterday, I heard someone disparaging President Obama in a manner inconsistent with good manners. So, I thought about the first time I heard our President spoken of this way - during his first inauguration - and I confess I don’t think anything has changed:I spent inauguration day at the dentist – numb and having my teeth drilled. No metaphor is intended, but you can take one with you if you so...

And the car hit me hard

And the car hit me hard

  Consider this an open letter - a sincere “Thank You,” from me to the woman who inadvertently nearly ended my life Tuesday afternoon.While some of this will appear sarcastic, please discount this to my continued shock and amazement I am still alive.As I crossed the street from the CVS to the Rockville Volunteer Fire Department near Hungerford Drive that afternoon I noticed the small beige two-door attempting to turn right. The woman inside first looked left for oncoming traffic and then right. I had the white light indicating it was safe to cross and began to do so.As I’m always careful because I don’t trust people will actually see a six foot, two-inch tall man in black hair and sunglasses crossing the street, I made sure I had eye contact with the driver of the car before I crossed.I mistook her nodding as an indication she’d seen me and would...

Good Counsel Crushes In Opener

Good Counsel Crushes In Opener

  OLNEY – Good Counsel opened their 2015 season at home Friday night with a resounding shutout victory against Wilson, 48-0. Falcons fans packed the stands to witness a squad that had both offense and defense running on all cylinders. Wilson played hard but failed to generate points, even as the team threatened to score in the fourth quarter.   The game had just started when senior linebacker Keandre Jones put up the first points of the night with a 68-yard touchdown on an interception return. “I came into Good Counsel trying to win a championship,” said Jones, “and that’s the way I’m ready to leave, with a championship.”
