Harriet Elizabeth
Brown Commemoration
Taskforce Gets to Work
By Sarah Miller
Staff Writer

Citizens Cautioned
to be Aware of
Hazardous Tidal Currents

Following the recent, tragic drownings in the

Chesapeake Bay off of Cove Point, citizens are
cautioned to be aware of hazardous conditions
caused by tidal currents reacting to certain geological formations.
We are deeply saddened by recent drownings
off of Cove Point, said Steve Weems, president
of the Calvert County Board of County Commissioners. Our thoughts and prayers remain
with the families who have been impacted. In an
effort to educate swimmers, we are in the process of posting signs at Cove Point Beach alerting swimmers to potential dangers of swimming in open water. We encourage everyone
swimming in open waters to make sure to take
all necessary precautions to avoid injury.
Citizens are asked to review the following
safety information regarding rip currents:

The Harriet Elizabeth Brown

Commemoration Taskforce had
their first meeting on July 27 to discuss the best way to remember local
civil rights hero Harriet Elizabeth
Harriet Elizabeth Brown was an
African-American teacher in Calvert County who, in 1937, successfully sued the county for pay equal
to white teachers in the county with
equivalent credentials.
The taskforce was formed during
the 2015 legislative session to find a
way to recognize Ms. Browns important historical role from the state level, according to documents provided

by taskforce chair Margaret Dunkle.

The taskforce includes representatives from the Commission for Women, the BOCC, local senators and
delegates, the NAACP, the Calvert
Historical Society and more.
Its a high powered task force to
look at the legacy of Harriet Elizabeth Brown and commemorate her
for future generations, Dunkle said,
adding that its important to memorialize pioneers who fought to ensure
the next generation is treated fairly.
The next meeting will be on Aug.
10 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the College of
Maryland Prince Fredrick campus
in the Building B conference room.

Stay at least 100 feet away from piers and

these structures.
If you are caught in a rip current, stay calm
and do not fight the current.
Swim parallel to the shore until you are out
of the current.
Once you are free, turn and swim toward
If you can't swim to the shore, float or tread
water until you are free of the rip current and

then head toward shore.

If you cant make it to the shore, draw attention to yourself by waving and calling for help.
If someone is in trouble in the water, get help
from a lifeguard. If a lifeguard is not available,
call 911. Throw the victim something that floats
a lifejacket, cooler, inflatable ball -- and yell
instructions on how to escape the current.
Always check conditions before entering the
water to make sure you know of any potential
hazards. Do not swim or wade in an area where
conditions exist that amplify tidal currents, such
as narrow points where water depths can be extreme and little if any warning exists identifying
the change in water depth or the current.

Dirt Bike Crash in

Prince Frederick

On July 29, at approximately 12:46 p.m.,

members of the Calvert County Sheriffs
Office Patrol Bureau and the Crash Reconstruction Team responded to the area of
Sheridan Point Road and Fig Point Road in
Prince Frederick for the report of a serious
crash involving a dirt bike.
Preliminary investigation revealed a
1999 Yamaha YZ125 dirt bike was traveling
along Sheridan Point Road prior to Fig Point
Road. The dirt bike was traveling southwest along the solid double yellow centerline when the operator began to lose control. The motorcycle traveled off the roadway, crossed a gravel driveway and struck
a Crepe Myrtle tree. The operator and the
motorcycle veered off the tree and struck a
metal sign support post causing the operator
to be ejected. The operator struck his head
on the sign support post. The operator and
the motorcycle came to rest at the base of the
metal sign support post.
The dirt bike was being operated by Cory

Jermaine Mackall, a 27-year-old male of

Prince Frederick, Maryland. He was not
wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
The evidence on scene and witness statements suggests that Mackall had been consuming alcohol prior to the crash. Mackall
was transported to the University Medical
Center in Baltimore by Maryland State Police Trooper 7 and is listed in critical but stable condition. At this time alcohol, speed,
and driver error are factors that contributed
to the crash.
The Crash Reconstruction Team is investigating the events that led up to the
crash. Anyone with additional information
regarding the crash is asked to contact Dfc.

SoMd CAN Rolls Out Two Initiatives

for the Upcoming School Year
By Sarah Miller
Staff Writer
The Southern Maryland College Access
Network (SoMd CAN) is launching two new
initiatives during the 2015-2016 school year.
According to SoMd CAN Executive Director Sonia Wagner, the organizations
board of directors found two age groups were
underserved elementary students and students in their first two years of high school.
SoMd CAN Pre-college Advisor Michelle
Kidwell suggested a curriculum that will target high school freshmen and sophomores
to bridge between the SoMd CAN opportunities for juniors and seniors, including the
Calvert Local Scholarship Application, and
the You CAN early awareness program for
eighth grade students.
The early high school initiative, We CAN,
will be implemented in this year. SoMd CAN
is looking for volunteers willing to learn the
curriculum and go talk to students once per
month. Wagner anticipated 200 students to
participate across the county this year.
The second initiative to be implemented
this year will be I CAN, a program that will
involve the Calvert County Parent Teacher
Association and school based Parent Teacher
Organizations in an effort to organize parent
workshops and give information on the cost
of college and how parents can prepare early
to fund their childs continuing education.
SoMd CANs goal is to ensure that students of all ages and their parents understand
that college is a possibility and funding it is
not an insurmountable obstacle, Wagner said.

Childrens Aid, Inc.

Collecting School
Supplies for
Local Children
By Sarah Miller
Staff Writer
Although recently ranked as
one of the wealthiest counties in
the nation, roughly 23 percent of
Calvert Countys public school students
qualified for the free or reduced lunch
program last school year. In five districts, 38 percent or more of the schools
students qualify for free or reduced
lunch. Although these percentages are
lower than our neighboring counties, I
think many county residents would be
surprised to learn these statistics. said
Childrens Aid, Inc. Executive Director
Krista Brezina.
Childrens Aid, Inc.s Operation Backpack provides Calvert County children
in need with a backpack filled with new
school supplies and a new, age-appropriate book.
The biggest needs right now are for
composition books, pencils, 24 count
packs of Crayola crayons, and glue
sticks. All donations should be new and
unopened, Brezina said.
To date, 418 Calvert County students

have received school supplies through

the Operation Backpack Program. This
year, more than 175 local children will
receive school supplies they need to succeed in the new school year. So far, there
are 101 elementary school, 38 middle
school, and 34 high school students registered to receive supplies and Brezina
anticipated the numbers will rise by the
beginning of the school year.
School supply donations with be accepted through Aug. 14, at the Office
Depot in Prince Frederick and World
Gym locations in Lusby, Owings and
Prince Frederick. Volunteers are needed
for backpack packing and distribution on
Saturday, Aug. 22, Brezina said.

Southern Maryland
Youth Orchestra & Choir
Selects Angelica Brooks
as Director of the
Southern Maryland
Youth Choir

The Southern Maryland Youth Orchestra &

Choir (SMYOC) is pleased
to announce the selection
of Angelica Brooks as its
new SMYOC Youth Choir
With a passion for making music and developing
young voices for ensemble
singing, Mrs. Brooks diligence and skill are manifest in the level of excellence and artistry her choirs
regularly achieve. A native
of Washington, DC, Mrs.
Brooks started singing in a city church
where her father was the church musician. She completed an undergraduate
degree in Vocal Performance at Bowie
State University and a Masters of Music
in Vocal Pedagogy at The Catholic University of America.
During her career as a choral director,
she has been nominated Prince Georges
County Public Schools (PGCPS) Teacher of the Year, and she currently serves
as the PGCPS Elementary Honors Chorus Director. She is also a quarterfinalist for the 2016 Grammy Music Educator
of the Year award. Mrs. Brooks is the
Director of the Fearless Falcon Middle
School Choral Ensemble at Benjamin D.
Foulois Creative and Performing Arts
Academy. Under her direction, the choir
has attained all 1s at the PGCPS Choral Festival and a Superior rating at the
MMEA State Choral Festival for the past
2 years. The choir also received a Superior rating and won best overall Middle
School Choir at the Music in the Parks
choral competition. Mrs. Brooks is very
eager to share the gift of music with talented singers in Southern Maryland.
The Southern Maryland Youth Choir
began in 2014 and completed two successful concert seasons last year. Starting this fall under Mrs. Brooks direction, the SMYOC Youth Choir will expand to a two-tiered program to include
advanced high school students as well as
continuing its offering for younger singers. Mrs. Brooks staff will include an
assistant conductor, who will work primarily with the junior choir, and a professional piano accompanist.
The upper level choir is being developed for a select group of very experienced singers aged 13-18 who will meet
weekly for 2-hour rehearsals on Monday
evenings and will perform a wide repertoire including pop acapella, modern,
world music, and classics - in multiple
concerts and special events throughout
the year. The junior choir Treblemakers
is for singers aged 8-12 and will rehearse
for 1-hour-and 45 minutes on Mondays

in the late afternoons. Tuition is charged for participation in the SMYOC in

order to cover a percentage
of the cost of the directors
salary, music and rehearsal
Financial aid is
available. Please visit the
website at for
further details.
Julia Nichols, founder
and president of SMYOC,
says of the Youth Choir, I
am excited to expand the
musical opportunities for
the talented youth in this
area. I believe that participating with
like-minded peers in an immersive music group provides an influential and enjoyable experience unlike any other.
Susan Bisson Lambert of Park Hall,
and Secretary of SMYOC, was integral
in the formation of the SMYOC Youth
Choir. She believes strongly in the transformative power of music-making and
feels there are few activities that confer
as many benefits into adulthood as ensemble music, where instrumentalists/
singers must apply individual talent toward collective excellence, acquiring
skill and discipline as they learn to work
together and develop artistically as a
group. Like being part of a competitive
team sport and other goal-oriented group
endeavors, each participant experiences
benefits far beyond that of acquiring a
specific set of skills.
SMYOC Youth Choir auditions will be
held August 24 (for the advanced choir)
and August 31 (for the junior choir) in
Leonardtown. Interested singers should
visit for critical details about
the programs and to fill out an audition
The Southern Maryland Youth Orchestra & Choir exists to nurture, develop and advance young, talented musicians in quality orchestral and choral
programs. Both the SMYOC Youth Orchestra and the SMYOC Youth Choir
serve students in St. Marys, Calvert
and Charles counties. The Youth Orchestra is a full orchestra open to any
young musician entering grades 6-12
with at least one year of musical study.
Younger musicians who can play at Level 4 may audition and, at the discretion
of the Director, may be accepted. Nontraditional orchestral instruments may
be included. The Youth Choir is a twotiered choir for auditioned singers ages
8-18. The SMYOC is working together
with Maryland musicians, educators and
organizations to expand the musical opportunities available in our community.

Christmas In April Calvert County

Inc. is a United Way Member Agency, which helps disabled and elderly
homeowners and families with children, who live in and own their house
and cannot afford to pay for home
repairs. Christmas in April works all
year to repair dozens of houses on the
last Saturday of April. Emergency
repairs and follow-up work are done
throughout the year.
The Warrior Fun Run & Sail raises
funds for Patuxent Habitat for Humanitys Veteran Critical Home Repair
program. In addition to the fun run/
walk and the sailing regatta, this years
event adds an officially timed 5K run.
The Chesapeake Bay Running Club is
timing the race and Southern Maryland Sailing Association is once again
producing the regatta. Live entertainment, refreshments, and food will be
offered by Bear Creek BBQ. For more

Revenue raised through the Warrior Fun Run and Sail to support

a deserving Navy veteran in Drum
Point this coming weekend.
William Quinn is a disabled Navy

son. In 1982 while assigned to the
CBs both of his feet were crushed in
an accident. Mr. Quinn says his goal in
life is, to be kind to everyone I meet.
He works as a substitute teacher in St.
Marys County; he also has a family
friendly YouTube channel: William
Quinn. Mr. Quinn attends Our Lady
Star of The Sea, Solomons where he
is a Brother Knight with the Knights
of Columbus. He has volunteered in
the past with Christmas in April and
his church to help other local families
in need. It is his turn to get a helping
hand. A new ramp and related improvements will enhance the quality
of life for this veteran and his family. Our goal in this project is serve
a Veteran who has unselfishly served
and defended our country, while promoting active volunteerism within our
community, said Steve Sanders of
Christmas in April.

Kitchen To
Open In Lusby
The Maryland Food Bank tells us that Hunger is
an immense issue that affects us all and it will take
all of us, in a full-scale social movement, to end hunger. The Lusby Charge (Eastern and St. John United
Methodist Churches) and Solomons United Methodist Church have linked love and resources in an effort
to help feed the hungry in southern Calvert County.
Beginning Thursday, Aug. 11, this collaboration
will operate the More Tasty Blessings Community Kitchen, which will provide complimentary meals
for all in the community on Tuesday and Thursday
nights from 6-8 p.m. at East-John Youth Center,
11835 Mill Bridge Road, Lusby, Md.
Based on information from End Hunger in Calvert County, nearly 1 in 8 people experience hunger,
and for children, that figure increases to 1 in 5. The
complimentary community kitchen is just one step
toward alleviating the escalating hunger challenge in
our community.
Our churches are excited to do all that we can to
help feed the hungry in our communities, said Rev.
Marvin R. Wamble, pastor of the Lusby Charge. It
is truly our pleasure to be able to provide sit down
meals twice a week for families and individuals. We
believe that everyone should have access to a good
meal; its good for the body and the soul.
The More Tasty Blessings Community Kitchen
will feature healthy sit-down meals for everyone in
the community. In the near future, this collaboration will also provide community resources, healthy
cooking tips, and information to help their neighbors
to live a healthier and more prosperous life.

From my Backyard to our Bay

A St. Marys County Residents Guide to Improving Our Environment and Drinking Water

From My Backyard
to Our Bay was first
developed by the Baltimore
County Soil Conservation
District. From there, the
booklet was given to each
of the Soil Conservation
Districts in the Chesapeake
Bay watershed area for
customization. If the 17.5
million residents who live in
the watershed area of the
Chesapeake Bay read this
booklet, and took to heart
its suggestions and best
practices, the Chesapeake
Bay would see a dramatic
increase in health. Obtain
a FREE copy of the
booklet by going to the St.
Marys River Watershed
Association, and
downloading it. The booklet
is available at Wentworth
Nursery in Charlotte Hall;
Chicken Scratch in Park
Hall; The Greenery in
Hollywood; Good Earth
Natural Food; and the St.
Marys Soil Conservation
District in Leonardtown.
Join your local watershed
association and make a
difference for Our Bay!

Forest Stewardship
Forest land is important to the overall
health of the Chesapeake Bay. Forests
provide several layers, from the canopy
to the forest floor, that act as filters,
improve water quality, reduce sedimentation, remove nutrients, and regulate
stream flow during storms.
Marylands 2.5 million acres of forest,
most of it privately owned, cover approximately 42% of its land area. St.
Marys Countys land area is about 50%
forested, and has more than 400 miles
of shoreline. Wooded buffers along
these shorelines are critical to improving Bay health. Acre for acre, forested
lands produced the least amount of runoff and pollution. The County occupies
a forest transitional zone, where the
dominant tree species vary from oak/
hickory to tulip poplar to sweet gum/red
maple and loblolly pine.
Forests can be harvested on a sustainable basis for materials, including
structural lumber, crates, shelving
and furniture, flooring, mulch, and
pulp for paper. Forests can, in most
cases, provide these products while

Chesapeakes Bounty
Soon to Open New
Location in North Beach

By Crista Dockray
Contributing Writer
The popular Chesapeakes Bounty is
opening a new location in North Beach, approximately 25 minutes from their current
location in St. Leonard. They are taking
over the building that used to be the Good
Hope Thrift Store on Bay Avenue. Although they do not have a set date for opening, they are moving as fast as they can and
are trying to finish construction as soon as
possible. Although it was not their original
plan to open a second location, they felt it
was right for the area.
We feel like there is a lot of access to
local food in St. Marys County, there are
a lot of people selling food on the side of
the road and several farmers markets.we
didnt feel like this was happening in North
Beach and talking with people who live up
this way and people in the government, they
also felt that this would be a great place for a
second location for Chesapeakes Bounty,
said owner William Kreamer.
Chesapeakes Bounty origins lay in Port
Republic where, according to their website,
the original location opened in 1994 by the
late Greg Ciesielski and his daughter Marci
Kreamer. The business flourished up until
its closing in 2006. It reopened again a year
later in 2007 thanks to the current owner
and son/grandson of Kreamer and Ciesielski, William Kreamer. Not soon after, Chesapeakes Bounty moved and opened their
current location in St. Leonard in 2009.
Chesapeakes Bounty offers produce,
meats, seafood, plants and flowers, dairy
products, firewood, baked goods, seasonal
dcor, soaps, and more. They run seven
days a week from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and offer seasonal food at all times of the year.
They try to offer specials everyday based
on the local catch and harvest, which are
announced via email, Facebook, or phone.
The new location will be continuing
the free educational programs they offer
in St. Leonards, such as Gardening, Wild
Foraging, Mushroom Cultivation, Natural
Building, Healthy Eating, Plant Propagation, Primitive Skills, Hide Tanning, Per-


The Calvert County Times

maculture, and much more. Although the

new location does not feature an onsite
farm, which offers many hands on activities, they are not prohibited by extreme
weather conditions. In their indoor center
at North Beach they can now offer classes
in the winter, without the exposure to the
elements. Kreamer hopes that people will
travel in-between locations based on their
needs and interests.
Chesapeakes Bounty in North Beach is a
commercial property allowing them access
to sewer and water. With this they will be
able to prepare food, giving them the opportunity to open a mobile kitchen trailer
out back in the parking lot for the community, something they were unable to do before.
Our food is going to be local, as it is in
the store, right down to the ingredients. So
you are not going to find a packet of premade ketchup, you are going to find our
own homemade ketchup. If we are making
fried pickles, they are going to be pickles
that we made, that we also sell at the bounty, fried in local oil with local flour.
With around 30 different farmers and 30
different watermen, around 90% of everything sold in Chesapeakes Bounty is locally
produced or caught, with hopes to make the
number even higher. They also work with
several local food banks and many charitable causes and offer Community Work
Days every Saturday where people can sign
up and come work for food and find out
more about agricultural topics. Their goal is
to help grow the local economy right down
to its roots and benefit the local community.
Metaphorically speaking, I really enjoy
keeping my finger on the pulse of local agriculture and aquaculture, said Kreamer.

champion and current point leader Jason
Covert drove to his third win of the season
in last Friday nights 35-lap Late Model feature at Potomac Speedway. The win for Covert, worth $3000, was his 7th career win at
the track and his first since May 24.
Amanda Whaley and Dale Hollidge
shared the front row for the start with
Whaley assuming the race lead as the field
stretched out off turn two. As Whaley lead,
fourth starting Jason Covert tucked into
second on lap-five and took up the chase.
Whaley would lead until lap-ten when Covert blew by to become the new leader a
lap later. Eventual runner-up Stevie Long
tried to stay with Covert, but the final fourteen circuits went caution free and Covert
would take the win by a wide margin. "We
destroyed a car at Winchester a few weeks
back and this is a brand new race car." Covert stated in victory lane. "It took the guy's
about two-weeks to get this car together and
its a nice piece, we're getting closer with it."
The World of Outlaw's come to town in two
weeks and Covert was experimenting with
his set-up in preparation for the event. "We
tried some things with the car to prepare for
the Outlaw's." Said Covert. "I love racing
with those guys, but they are the best for a
reason, so we'll give it our best shot." Kenny Moreland took third with Kyle Lear and
Kerry King Jr. rounding out the top-five.
Heats went to Long and Hollidge.
Current point leader Mike Franklin's
dream season continued as he took his 9th
win of the season in the 16-lap Street Stock

Silenced Roar
By Ronald N. Guy Jr.
Contributing Writer
This column is a guilt-ridden obligation. Ive never written about outdoor sports, despite frequently hunting and fishing in Southern Maryland
as a kid. My best childhood memories
include catching crabs, hooking yellow perch in the McIntosh Run and
hunting squirrels and deer in the fall.
But awful circumstances have forced
the subject upon me. As a human being and former hunter, Im upset and
I owe my outdoor experiences to
two uncles who were, and still are,
avid sportsmen. They do things the
right way and ensured their apprentice
would too. I took hunter safety courses
and adhered to strict gun storage and
handling protocol. My licenses were
always current. All hunting was done
in season. Bag limits were gospel.
Game was clearly identified before
taking a shot. No mammal, fish or
crustacean was harvested against the
rules ever and every kill was used.
Nature and its species were to be respected. Taking animals from the wild
wasnt a right; it was a privilege. That
was the Native American way. Thats
how I was taught. Thats how it should
always be.
Most sportsmen share those values.
Thats why most are disgusted by the
recent death of a 13-year-old lion in
Zimbabwe. His name was Cecil. He
will roar no more.
In life, Cecil was a national treasure: a majestic, black-maned beast
who was a resident of Hwange National Park and a collared participant in an
Oxford University study. In death, he
has become a symbol of disturbing human arrogance and excess.
William Parker, an American dentist, killed Cecil. Parker, an avid big
game hunter, paid $50,000 for the
right (moneythe root of evil). He
and his local guides allegedly strapped
a carcass to their vehicle, lured Cecil
beyond the parks boundaries and
Parker shot him with a crossbow. The
injured lion was tracked for the next
40 hours (ugh) until Parker finally delivered the kill shot. Cecils head was
decapitated, his collar removed and
his body skinned and left to rot.
Regardless of whether this was a
technically legal hunt, does it sound

like sport or the behavior of a human

with any regard for hunting ethics or
basic morality? To me it sounds like
an act by a disturbed individual determined to seek and destroy beauty
just for fun. And it wasnt Parkers first
offense. In 2008, he pled guilty to lying to federal officials investigating a
black bear kill. An elephant hunt was
next on his agenda. Nice guy, eh?
Parkers life is now unraveling. Hes
in hiding, his dental practice is shuttered and Zimbabwe has requested his
extradition. I suppose his existence
resembles Cecils during those 40
hours when the wounded animal had
an arrow Parkers arrow - protruding from his body. Thats how I like to
think of it.
Parkers burden is excessive, yet I
lack sympathy. This problem senseless trophy hunting and the harvesting of endangered game needed a
victim to mourn and a perpetrator to
vilify. Cecil and Parker have assumed
the roles. The truth is there are a lot
of Cecils and Parkers. In fact, while I
wrote this piece, The Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force reported another
lion Ill call him Simba - was killed.
If Im blessed with grandchildren,
its a virtual certainty that their world
will be devoid of wild rhinos, a species brutalized for its prized horn.
Only four white rhinos remain on
earth; the lone male is surrounded
24/7 by armed guards. Elephants face
a similarly bleak outlook; the amazing
creatures could be extinct in Africa
by the 2020s. The future for big cats
and many fish stocks isnt marketably
better. And what of our precious blue
What are we doing? Arent we better than this?
Mahatma Gandhi once said, The
greatness of a nation and its moral
progress can be judged by the way its
animals are treated. Perhaps Cecils
martyrdom will invigorate conservationalists, spur political action and
change the worlds William Parkers.
Until then, whatever greatness resides
in our capabilities will remain elusive.
What else am I supposed to say? Feign
optimism is all I can muster. RIP Cecil. RIP Simba. RIP et al.
