Raskin aims for a congressional seat

I first met Senator Jamie Raskin during my own advocacy efforts regarding issues he was working on including gun safety and campaign finance reform. I was very pleased to be able to sit down with Raskin and discuss with him his vision for Maryland and the nation as he launches his campaign to fill the Congressional seat of Congressman Chris Van Hollen, who is beginning his own campaign to fill the Senate seat soon to be vacated by the retiring Senator Barbara Mikulski. The interview was conducted in Raskin's office at American University’s Washington College of Law where he holds the position of professor of Constitutional law and director of the Program on Law and Government. The Sentinel:     What are your proudest achievements at the state level that you envision championing in Congress? Senator Jamie Raskin:     I suppose my proudest achievement is simply to zealously and faithfully serve my 150,000 constituents...

Takoma Park activists get Federation award

  ROCKVILLE - Three local organizations will be recognized Friday for their activism over the years on behalf of the Montgomery County Civic Federation. The Takoma Park Young Activist Club will be presented with the Sentinel Award, the MCCF Planning and Land Use Committee with the Star Cup, and Save Our Seminary at Forest Glen with the Wayne Goldstein Award. The event takes place at Tony Lin’s Restaurant at 6 p.m. “This is a chance to recall the hard work that they do to improve the quality of life in the county,” said Paula Bienenfeld, the president of the MCCF. The Takoma Park Young Activist Club is currently working on eliminating the use of polystyrene, which is more commonly known as Styrofoam, in food service. They are the youngest recipients of the award, according to Bienenfeld. Earlier this year, the Montgomery County Council passed a bill to eliminate the use of polystyrene in county cafeterias and “require...

Rockville draws large Hometown Holidays crowds

Rockville draws large Hometown Holidays crowds

ROCKVILLE – Once again the title seems to be in error. Although Rockville’s annual Memorial Day celebration is called Hometown Holidays, the attendees included many more than those who call the city home.   Among the roughly 60,000 people in attendance were those who traveled from as far as the Midwest to enjoy the party. Connie Eldridge came from Illinois to visit her son for the weekend – and to enjoy the Rockville celebration. “Well, I love parades. My son and husband and daughter-in-law are patient with me because they don’t love it as much. But every parade’s unique to the area. We’ve attended parades in Illinois and in Florida. ... It’s just like a snapshot of the community,” Eldridge said. “(Rockville is) very diverse. I enjoyed seeing the different cultural groups, and every parade has the politicians and the scout groups, but this was neat.” The parade included numerous Cub Scout packs, Girl...

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...

Transparency?!!#

For 35 years I’ve been engaged in an exploration of facts.On June 1 I will join more than a dozen other reporters who, like me, went to jail to try and protect a confidential source and promote the First Amendment. Please join us at The National Press Club for this event.We may not be heroes, but we aren’t the problem either.I relish the role of being a disinterested third-party observer. I have no hidden agenda other than to uncover the facts. I work very hard to refrain from putting opinions in news stories. I want to provide my readers and viewers with the facts and let them come up with their own opinion. If my facts are wrong, then correct me. Give me the facts.Don’t sit on the sidelines complaining the media never “gets it” when you aren’t providing it.Don’t claim a bias exists because your side doesn’t get printed....

For a good movie?

For a good movie?

So there I sat, huddled with my wife last night around the hi-def 60” flat screen television watching Carl Sagan’s “Contact,” when my blushing bride turned to me and said, “Wouldn’t it be great if we actually did contact another species. It would make all of our troubles seem so small.” She had to tell me this twice and the reason is because as I sat watching this movie, all I could think about at the end was the hearing being held in Washington D.C. There sat Jodie Foster being grilled by a host of senators and James Woods as a menacing politician – sort of a cross between Mitch McConnell and James Carville. After she is grilled in front of hundreds of people she walks outside of the building and out by the reflecting pool and is greeted by thousands of well wishers. I couldn’t get beyond one thing: How did all of...

The Real Division

  The fallout continues over Deflategate. The worst travesty in the history of man has been perpetrated in the NFL. Wait. Sorry, I don’t really care about Tom Brady and his flat balls.I do care about the fallout continuing from the riots in Baltimore and the police shootings across the country.There is also continuing dialogue about increasing the minimum wage, the affordable health care act, affordable education, veterans benefits and illegal immigration.People seem to be convinced race relations are the worst they’ve been in years, lazy people are taking advantage of the minimum wage, health care shouldn’t be for everyone, no one should gripe about paying student loans and veterans should be favored over illegal immigrants.

Lexie Brown ends up a two and through Terp

Lexie Brown ends up a two and through Terp

University of Maryland women’s basketball standout Lexie Brown is two and through in College Park. Maryland head coach Brenda Frese announced on Tuesday that Brown, a rising junior, has been granted a release from her scholarship. Brown, a 5-foot-9 point guard, averaged 13.3 points per game and was named to the All-Big Ten first team and to the Associated Press All-America third team last season. Brown, a Georgia native, earned numerous individual accolades and was instrumental in helping lead Maryland to back-to-back Final Four appearances over the past two seasons. “We appreciate all of Lexie’s contributions these past two years to our program,” said Frese. “With two Final Four appearances, a Big Ten regular season and tournament championship, it’s been an incredible ride. We wish Lexie nothing but happiness and success in her future.” Brown, the daughter of former NBA player Dee Brown, was a McDonald’s All-American in high school and was expected to make...
