Pandemic Halloween: So Much More than Trick-or-Treating H alloween weekend is finally here, and I won’t beat around the bush—it’s a weird one. The time of year is right: a 48-degree forecast for Halloween night, with sunset just after 6 pm and dry leaves rustling on the sidewalks. There will be one thing missing, however: the packs of trick-or-treaters we’re used to seeing run up and down the streets on a sugar high. While no one has outright banned Halloween, many local governments are strongly discouraging trick-or-treating. Homeowners who dutifully stock up on mixed bags of Halloween candy each year are a bit bewildered: will we get any trick-or-treaters at all? Should we set some candy at the end of the driveway, or turn off our lights and avoid all in-person contact? Parents, meanwhile, worry about the close-up nature of door-to-door candy and all the little hands dipping into the same bowl of treats.

Then they fret over disappointing their Halloween-loving kids, in a year when so many things have already been canceled. Let’s face it: handling holiday traditions in a pandemic is more anxiety-inducing than Freddie Kreuger, the Crypt Keeper, and the murderous clown from It, all put together. In my townhouse community, we’re putting on a small “parade” of 10–12 young kids in costume and allowing them to trick-ortreat outside their own houses. All the grownups are invited to sit in socially-distant lawn chairs and enjoy the spectacle. It may not be much, but at least costumes, candy, and neighbors are still part of the fun. Actually, in the weeks leading up to Halloween night, I’ve noticed a little extra holiday spirit bubbling up this year—as everyone spends more time around the house. I have witnessed some of the most elaborate displays of spooky dec-

orations I can remember—from cheerful pumpkin lights and Día de los Muertos skeletons to giant tarantulas and decaying zombies. For the past few weeks, we’ve been taking walks around the neighborhood to check out Halloween decorations like one might do with Christmas lights. The carved pumpkins on display are equally impressive: with extra time on their hands, people are tackling intricate shapes and painted pumpkins. One friend of mine created an over-the-top peacock pumpkin, painted deep turquoise and bedecked with jewels and plumage. This year, Halloween isn’t just about one night; it’s a whole holiday season. In that spirit, CBM Bay Weekly’s Halloween edition is about much more trick-or-treating. We’ve scoured Chesapeake Country to find the most festive (and socially responsible) events happening this weekend, including

some creative celebrations designed just for our current pandemic climate. Read all about it on page (9). We’re even holding a Bay Weekly costume contest, because, why not? We invite you to send us your photos (editor@bayweekly.com) or message them to us on Facebook. We want to see pics of your spookiest look, your cute kids in costume, even your pets (who doesn’t love the classic dachshund in a hot dog bun costume?). We’ll pick the best submissions and print them right here on this page next week, and you can post your pics on Bay Weekly’s Facebook page, too. So what if coronavirus steals Halloween trick-or-treating? We’re celebrating the whole spooky season. p — MEG WALBURN VIVIANO, CBM NEWS DIRECTOR

FELLOW BOATERS RESCUE FIVE FROM BURNING SPORTFISHER BY MEG WALBURN VIVIANO

A

beautiful Saturday afternoon on the Bay turned serious very quickly for the five people on board a 45-foot fishing boat, when a fire broke out in the engine compartment. The 1978 Chris-Craft Sportfish was in the open Bay between Horseshoe Point on the western shore and Bloody Point on the Eastern Shore. Good Samaritans on another boat took everyone on board onto their boat before emergency responders got there. The Anne Arundel County Fire Department got the call around 3:30 p.m. Saturday, responding along with the Tilghman Island Volunteer Fire Department, North Beach Volunteer Fire Department, Maryland Natural Resources Police, and the Coast Guard. The big risk was the 300 gallons of fuel the vessel was carrying, according to Anne Arundel County Fire. Firefighters knocked down the fire by boat and vented to prevent a flash fire from the fuel. Then, they boarded the vessel to fully extinguish the fire and dewater the boat. No one was hurt in the process, and the Coast Guard took over the salvage plans from there. In all, it took 15 firefighters half an hour to get the fire under control, and damage to the boat is estimated at $40,000. It’s still not clear exactly what caused the engine compartment to catch fire.

UNUSUALLY LARGE JELLYFISH SPOTTED IN BAY WATERWAYS BY CHERYL COSTELLO

I

f you’ve ever been stung by a sea nettle in the Bay, you likely haven’t forgotten it. And seeing huge ones right around the bulkhead is a little unnerving. A surprising number of jellyfish have been hanging out all over Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and other waterways, and experts say they’re unusually large. Bay Bulletin went looking for what may be causing this jelly invasion. To help us understand what seems like an explosion of jellyfish in and around the Baltimore harbor, we turned to Jennie Janssen, the assistant curator of Blue Wonders at the National Aquarium. “It’s definitely an Atlantic bay nettle,” Janssen says, looking at a large, translucent jelly about six inches in diameter with tentacles three feet long. This is one of the more common species in the Bay and Janssen says we typically see them anywhere from early summer through the end of November. Ray Ratcliffe, a local marina resident, tells us, “I’ve had a boat up in the harbor for a few years now and I think this is the first year I actually recognized jellyfish.” Visitors to the Inner Harbor can’t help but notice them from the water’s edge. Bay Bulletin spotted several hanging

This year’s Atlantic bay nettles are large and in charge. View video at https://tinyurl.com/bay-bulletin-nettles. out around the docks at Lighthouse Point Marina in Canton, tentacles moving with the tide. Those tentacles are what sting us, but their main purpose is to pull in food. Janssen says what’s uncommon this year is how big some of them are getting. “My biggest suspicion is really that their food sources are very prevalent right now. I’ve seen that through, you know, typically if you’ve got a lot of food, you’re going to get a lot bigger. We’re seeing a lot of them which means there has to be a lot of food in the water to support that many jellies getting to that size.” The waterkeeper at the Inner Harbor for Blue Water Baltimore tells Bay Bulletin she has also seen an increase in the number of jellyfish this year, not just their size. She thinks it comes down

to a lack of rainfall. Alice Volpitta says that lack of rain means warmer, saltier water—conditions that jellies prefer. Volpitta also points out that more people are out walking along the water during the pandemic, and that means more eyeballs to spot all the nettles. For a Millersville company that helps keeps nettles away, this year’s jelly explosion has made for good business. The owners of Nettle Net Boat Pools, which started 42 years ago, was just about to throw in the towel due to lack of demand. “I was to the point where I was considering shutting down the business, and then this year happened,” says David Nolte. The Nettle Net Boat Pool is a swimming enclosure to be used off your dock or swim ladder that keeps the stinging jellies out. The outer rim is inflated with a foot pump. The netting comes out of a bag and drops down eight feet into the water with weighted lines sewn into the bottom. “When your swim ladder is inside and it is secured to your boat, you have a space to swim. You’re in here and the jellyfish are out there,” Nolte shows us. About 80 percent of their business is in the Chesapeake Bay. In 2020, they sold 200 Nettle Net Boat Pools. In 2019, they sold eight and Nolte says not a single one of those was in Maryland. The size and number of this year’s jellies might look right out of a Halloween horror movie, and the sight of them is best enjoyed from a distance.

nnapolis has long been considered the sailing capital of the world, and the sudden loss of one of its bright stars is being felt far and wide. Geoff Ewenson, one of Annapolis’s pioneering professional sailors, died suddenly of an apparent heart attack Oct. 14 at just 50 years old. Ewenson was a competitor on the international stage, taking second place in the U.S. Olympic trials in the Finn class in 2004 and 2008, and competing on several championship-winning boats over a few decades. National Sailing Hall of Fame President and past US Sailing President Gary Jobson was shocked and saddened by the loss. “Looking back I feel lucky to have been a crew mate with Geoff and often a competitor. He was always at the top of his game. I remember on a breezy fall 40mile race around the Chesapeake in a TP 52. We were flying north up the bay in 30-plus knots of wind. Geoff was trimming the main. After a few minutes he said to the helmsman in the most understated manner, ‘We could go faster.’ The incredulous helmsman simple asked, ‘How?’ I was watching the exchange with great interest especially since we were already skipping over the waves at 22 knots. Geoff then coached the helmsman, ‘Just head up two degrees, and every time you get a blast head down with the puff and we will gain.’ The helmsman did as instructed and soon we were in the lead,” Jobson recounts. As a competitor, Jobson likens Geoff to tennis great Roger Federer, “because he just kept playing persistently hard. Geoff just kept coming at you. He was fast and clever…Essentially he strived for perfection.” Off the water, Geoff was just as persistent in his efforts to help others. With his wife, Mary, publisher of SpinSheet Publishing Company, Ewenson volunteered with organizations including Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating, the United States

“Geoff was involved with VOST in so many ways—as a pro sailor, he was invaluable coaching on our high performance boats when he had the time. We will always be grateful for his support of VOST.” —THE NAVAL ACADEMY VARSITY OFFSHORE SAILING TEAM (VOST) Naval Academy, and Athletes Serving Athletes. He was a strong supporter of the Naval Academy Varsity Offshore Sailing Team (VOST). The team posted on Facebook, “Geoff was involved with VOST in so many ways—as a pro sailor, he was invaluable coaching on our high performance boats when he had the time. He also was very involved in helping us procure several of our donated thoroughbreds. We will always be grateful for his support of VOST.” Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley released a public statement honoring Ewenson. “Geoff had recently turned 50 and I know for many people, myself included, this news feels raw and painful because it doesn’t seem possible to lose such a vibrant soul at such an age. Our sympathies go out to the family and friends of Geoff. He was loved and I know he will be missed.” Mary Ewenson requests that those wishing to make donations in Geoff’s memory direct them to Athletes Serving Athletes, The Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County, or any other organization that does good in the world.


BAY BULLETIN ANNAPOLIS PADDLERS CREATE FALL RACE SERIES AMID COVID CANCELLATIONS BY STEVE ADAMS

W

hile the pandemic didn’t prevent paddleboarders from getting on the water this year, it did cancel nearly all of the organized races that they might have enjoyed. But that didn’t stop Carleen Birnes and Nicole Stimpson, two paddleboarding enthusiasts from Annapolis, from competing. Facing a lack of regional races, the two women decided to create not just one race, but the CHES•SUP•PEAKE Fall Race Series, a points-based “friendly competition” consisting of four three-mile-long paddles held on the South, Magothy, and Severn rivers and the Chesapeake Bay from September 18 through October 10. “Nicky and I had discussed putting a points series together last year, and the big void in our racing scene this season served as the catalyst we needed to get it going,” says Birnes, a personal trainer who fell in love with and began teaching SUP stroke through her company, Mantra Fit, seven years ago. She already had experience organizing races, having created and led a weekly Wednesday night SUP race series that’s run for the last four years, and was confident that there would be strong interest from the closeknit community of paddleboarders that she’d met through these and other races. “The goal of the series was to help our

board and, most recently, a “teardrop” trailer camper. “CLC is not only interested in making boat kits but also loves to see customers out enjoying them on the water,” says Stimpson, who works for the boatbuilder. “So our president and our CEO felt it was a natural fit to support a grassroots event occurring right on our local waterways.” While Stimpson represented CLC on the water—she earned first place in the series, with Birnes taking second—the company provided and manned the safety launch and joined additional sponsors in providing trophies and prizes for the top 5 men’s and women’s finishers. CLC will also help the series grow even larger next year. “Our overall goal is to bring more recreational paddlers, whatever their age or experience, into the sport of SUP racing in a fun and welcoming way,” says Birnes. “So next year our plan is to create a CHES•SUP•PEAKE points series. Membership paddlers who join will earn points for placing in the top five spots in six to eight participating races in the DelMarVa region, many of which raise money for local causes that support the health of the Chesapeake Bay.” The series will culminate at the end of the season at the final CHES•SUP•PEAKE race, where winners will be recognized and CLC will showcase some of its SUP and kayak kits.

bronze likeness of Jack, a black Labrador retriever popular for his social media posts, greets passersby along the boardwalk in North Beach. Many stop to snap photos with the statue. The real Jack was adopted by Dan Dusseau and his family, who quickly discovered that Jack liked to mug for the camera. Soon he became a local celebrity of sorts. “Dogs really pay attention to clues,” Dusseau says. “When Jack saw a camera or heard a shutter, he knew it was play time with dad. I always goofed around with him, putting blankets, treats and baseball caps on his head.” Dusseau began sharing the images he captured of Jack, who he adopted in 2009 from Lucky Dog Rescue of Arlington, Va. Soon he had his own Facebook page called “Jack’s World.” “Jack’s Facebook page had more than 40,000 followers,” Dusseau says. “He had his own webpage, Instagram, Pinterest and videos on YouTube. Jack’s Facebook photos were ‘liked’ a million times one year.” Sadly, Jack passed away from a brain tumor in February 2018 after chronicling his battle on social media for his fans. “When he passed, the outpouring and support was amazing,” Dusseau says. “A Jack fan named Pat shared that she read about Jack’s passing and sat in her car and cried for an hour. About a week after, someone suggested a Jack memorial.” A fan of Jack’s approached the town of North Beach about constructing a memorial to honor the pup. “A Jack Memorial Group was formed with some of Jack’s fans,” Dusseau says. “We all agreed that we could turn tragedy into triumph. Knowing how much Jack enjoyed having his photograph taken, we figured people would love to take photos with a statue of Jack.” The statue on the boardwalk in North Beach features a bronze likeness of Jack on a bench. The dog’s exact measurements were used to create the statue. Since Jack’s tongue was

often hanging out, the group included a pink tongue. But the group didn’t stop at just a statue. A new water fountain spouts water for dogs and humans. The color of the fountain was dubbed “Jack blue” by the group. It’s the color of the collar he always wore. The pandemic threw a slight wrench in the plans to unveil the statue in April. “As time progressed, since all was ready but COVID-19 was lingering, we decided to go ahead with the install and have something positive happen in 2020,” Dusseau says. The statue was unveiled at the end of September and has been a hit ever since. “Reading people’s comments on social media, there seems to be a sense of pride,” Dusseau says. “One person wrote ‘Look what my town did.’ Another stated: ‘Something to smile about in these difficult days’ and another said it was ‘a way to spread happy.’” Dusseau enjoys visiting the boardwalk and watching people interact with the statue. “Sometimes people walk towards Jack thinking it’s a real dog,” Dusseau says. Dusseau and his family have received messages from Jack supporters telling them that a “Jack visit”—going to see the statue—is now on their bucket list. If you visit Jack, be sure to look closely to spot another nod to this beloved local. “There’s a squirrel hidden under the bench, because Jack’s fans all knew he was forever battling the squirrels,” Dusseau says. p Editor’s Note: Jack should be well-known to our readers.

A L L O W E E N is nearly upon us. It may be the scariest yet... or simply the most complicated. Parents are wondering how best to navigate what has become the second-most popular American holiday, and homeowners are wondering if any trick-or-treaters will come a-knocking. No need to fear; Halloween will still happen, but how you honor this spooky Saturday may require some creative thinking. The Centers for Disease Control and the Anne Arundel County Health Department have advised that children avoid traditional trick-or-treating this Halloween, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Instead they encourage family-centered

activities such as scavenger hunts, virtual costume contests, pumpkin carving and Halloween movie marathons (see pg 17 for our recommendations). For those who are dead-set on parading through neighborhoods in search of treats, experts say approved masks should still be worn (don’t use costume masks), and there should be minimal contact with those outside your household. Creative minds are coming up with ways to deliver goodies to children without having lots of hands dipping into one candy bowl. From individual treat bags to PVC-candy chutes, be on the lookout for some ingenious candy delivery methods. CO N T I N U E D O N N E X T PAG E

HALLOWEEN CONTINUED

High-risk activities that are discouraged this year include hay rides, haunted houses, festivals and large-scale trunk-or-treats. So what’s left to enjoy? Thankfully there is still plenty of ghoulish fun to be had in the region. Here are a few events that haven’t completely sold out or are free to participate.

Around Annapolis

Downtown Annapolis gets into the spooky spirit. Help fill a truck with canned foods, non-perishable foods, new socks, and toiletries for those in need. Drop off your donations at the BUD Truck October 31 from 11 am to 1 pm on Market Space next to the Annapolis Market House. Donated items will be given to the Anne Arundel County Food Bank to be shared with local food pantries. While you are downtown this week be sure to enter the Great Annapolis Pumpkin Contest by taking your picture with any of the three massive pumpkins located near Lemongrass Restaurant, St. Anne’s Church, and Zachary’s Jewelers. Post your pictures on Instagram or Facebook and tag #GreatAnnapolisPumpkin to be entered for a chance to win gift cards to local restaurants. The dark tale of Bram Stoker’s legendary vampire lives on through Ballet Theatre of Maryland’s blend of sensuous dancing and gripping theatrical performance. See dancers perform on an outdoor stage at the Maryland Theatre for the Performing Arts in two performances (2pm & 6:30pm) Friday and Saturday. Bring lawn seating and come in costume, or stream it live at home. www.balletmaryland.org. Although the Hammond-Harwood House cannot host its traditional Pumpkin Walk this year, the historic home is asking guests to bring a decorated pumpkin to add to the pumpkin patch on the front lawn (19 Maryland Ave.). Friday, from noon-4pm, visitors can pick up a pre-packed goodie bag, play scavenger hunt, take photos and post on social media. Watch storyteller Andrea Lovett for a frighteningly tame story and a few belly laughs in the online video telling of The Ghost with the One Black Eye by visiting www.hammondharwoodhouse.org.

ADDITIONAL TIPS:

đ&#x;‘ť Consider Halloween-themed face

coverings over costume masks. Do not share masks, fangs or similar items. Note: Costume masks have mouth and nose holes and don’t provide the same protection as face coverings. Costume masks on top of cloth masks can be dangerous and limit breathing.

đ&#x;‘ť Bring alcohol-based hand sanitizer when trick or treating. đ&#x;‘ť Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth, as germs can spread that way. đ&#x;‘ť Children should not reach into

candy bowls or bags. Candy should be given out using a scoop or tongs, so the candy is not directly handled.

đ&#x;‘ť Consider providing individually

wrapped goodie bags on a table at the edge of the driveway or yard. When preparing and handing out treats, be sure to follow proper hand hygiene.

đ&#x;‘ť Avoid parties and party games like bobbing for apples. đ&#x;‘ť When returning home with treats, children should wash hands properly with soap and water before eating anything.

OR THE ANNAPOLIS SHAKESPEARE COMPANY, the “hurry up and wait” that has been the bane of theater companies across America during the COVID shutdown has been replaced by the “hurry up and wait” of movie making. Actors and directors were already working on a production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth before the shutdown brought live theater to a screeching halt. So the company’s founding artistic director Sally Boyett decided that ASC would “make an investment in the future of our company” by turning the Bard’s famous tragedy into a feature film, available to local schools as well as to patrons. “It’s an incredible way to learn Shakespeare,” said Boyett, who added that the educational version will include behind-the-scenes commentary about the production. Boyett, who has taught Shakespeare’s Romeo and 12 • BAY WEEKLY • October 29 - November 5, 2020

Juliet for the Anne Arundel County School system, says, “We were looking for ways to get around this big door that had been shut in front of us” as pandemic restrictions took place, “and the thought was, instead of doing Zoom versions, why not do a movie? Our goal is to make it great and still have an educational focus.” The theater company partnered with Washington, D.C.-based CabezaHueca Films, helmed by four-time Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and producer Mario Ramos, to produce the movie. This version of Macbeth takes place in the American colonies instead of 11th century Scotland. Taking advantage of Maryland’s rich colonial heritage, scenes were shot at historical locations throughout Anne Arundel County, including Historic London Town, the Gresham Estate and St. Anne’s Church. It is set in 1781, the year Maryland ratified the Articles of Confederation and, later, the British surrendered at Yorktown to end the Revolutionary War. Turning a theatrical production to film was naturally

complicated by the necessary safety protocols. The actors rehearsed virtually at first, then transitioned to in-person work, with the cast and crew in masks. The cinematic details of choosing locations, preparing shots, and matching light from one shooting day to another were still subject to the intrusion of modern times. Boyett noted that the fog used during one outdoor scene in Historic London Town got so thick that the fire department showed up after being called by a worried neighbor. And of course, planes flying overhead or loud boats whizzing by immediately shut down scenes as the cast and crew waited for the sounds of modernity to fade out. But after each interruption, the take went on. And so will the shows, when restrictions ease and audiences are allowed to return to the theater. Meanwhile, ASC’s movie Macbeth will be available for educational use in schools later this year, and more widely sometime in 2021. p

STORY AND PHOTO BY WAYNE BIERBAUM

Irruptions Bring Visitors to Area

I

n the beginning of this year, I wrote about birds of the far north that on rare occasions come south into our area. These birds stay home for the winter except when there is a loss of a food source, then they travel to find food. These trips south are called irruptions. This fall, a large irruption of pine siskins and a smaller influx of purple finches has already started. The last irruption of siskins was eight years ago. At that time, in the middle of winter, three or four pine siskins would occasionally show up at a feeder. This year I already have had up to 20 at a time and they go through a week’s worth

of finch food in a day. They are really sloppy and wasteful eaters. I have not seen a purple finch this season but they have been reported all around our area. Pine siskins, traveling in flocks, are slightly smaller than a goldfinch but have a pointier bill and are striped all over. The adults are brown with yellow bars on the wing. They live in the pine and fir forests of northern Canada and feed on seeds and nuts; they really like thistle seeds. The purple finch is a deep purple large bird, bigger than a house finch with which they are often confused. The house finch may be purple in color too,

Pine Siskin but not as deeply purple and the stripes on its chest are brown. The purple finch has purple stripes with a wide light-colored bar above their eyes. They fly in small groups and are frequently seen as

Beautyberry Steals the Show

eautyberry comes into its name starting in mid- to late-October. Its long arching wands of neon purple berries that look artificially painted always attract attention. There is a white form that looks like strings of miniature white pearls. Callicarpa or beautyberry is a genus of shrubs and small trees in the family Lamiaceae. They are mostly native to east and southeast Asia where the majority of the species occur, Australia, Madagascar, southeast North America and South America. American beautyberry (Callicarpa americana) is native to the southeastern United States. It can reach 3 to 6 feet in height. The berries are edible and a jelly can be made from them. Ornamental varieties have been bred to have pink berries. The seeds and berries are important foods for many species of birds, particularly the northern bobwhite. Bodinier’s beautyberry (Callicarpa bondinieri) is native to western central China and more tolerant of cold than C. americana and is the species most widely cultivated in northwestern

pairs at feeders. They are fond of sunflower seeds. Watch for these visitors from the far north. They may not show up again for many more years. p

Europe. Japanese beautyberry (Callicarpa japonica) is native to Japan, China and Korea. American beautyberry has been used as a folk remedy to prevent mosquito and tick bites. Four chemicals isolated from callicarpa have been shown to act as insect repellents: borneol, callicarpenal, intermedol and spathulenol. The use of callicarpenal has been patented by the USDA’s agricultural research service as a mosquito repellent. According to a July 2020 story on ScienceDaily.com, the American beautyberry was an important medicinal plant for native Americans prompting researchers to investigate its chemical properties. Scientists discovered a compound in the leaves that boosts an antibiotic’s activity against antibiotic-resistant staph bacteria. The compound belongs to a group of chemicals known as clerodane diterpenoids, some of which are used by plants to repel predators. According to the Centers for Disease Control, at least 2.8 million people get an antibiotic-resistant infection annually in the U.S. Laboratory experiments showed

that the plant compound works in combination with oxacillin to knock down the resistance to the drug of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. The American Chemical Society’s Infectious Diseases published the finding, led by scientists at Emory University and the University of Notre Dame. That’s another beautiful benefit of the American beautyberry. p

SPORTING LIFE

FISHFINDER: The rockfish bite is as good as it’s going to get this season. Stripers have moved up into the rivers to ambush the descending baitfish and the Magothy, Severn and Chester are good places to start, particularly in evenings. Trolling small bucktails and spoons are a good tactic as is casting surface and swimming plugs, soft plastic jigs and drifting live baits. There are still some spot around but small perch are starting to tempt hungry rockfish as well. Chumming is still productive and fishing cut bait will get some takers as well. Surprisingly crabbing is still very good with fat jimmies enjoying a last bit of feeding up before they bury themselves in the mud for winter.

Waterfowl on the Bay “ A flock of mallards out front,” hissed our guide. The three of us in the blind simultaneously reached for our shotguns. You can always spot experience in a waterfowl hide; there is no abrupt motion. Even when intending to do things quickly, the actions are smooth and deliberate. Waterfowl have remarkably keen vision, especially for erratic or sudden movement. We turned our heads slowly, keeping our faces angled down, though our eyes were frantically darting about, focusing out to the horizon, up and back, attempting to visually acquire the group of ducks tearing through the sky at 60 mph. One would think they

would be obvious against an otherwise empty horizon. They’re not. Finally Ernie whispered, “Two o’clock high, still out of range.” Then, just seconds later, Ross added, “Starting to lock up and come around.” Locking up is a term that means the birds have stopped beating their wings, holding them out cupped, horizontally rigid but dumping altitude, banking and sailing together toward a singular location—our decoy spread. We had stopped breathing awhile ago, at the first alert from our guide. “Mind the hens. We don’t want them,” he added. For conservation reasons, the daily limit on mallards THURSDAY

in recent years includes only one hen per gun. A hunting party could become handicapped the rest of the day if they quickly shot the collective limit. Identifying male from female becomes critical and in the heat of engaging a twisting, flaring and accelerating flock of alert ducks, distinguishing each by sex can prove difficult. Drake mallards, the more desirable duck, should be obvious from their bright color combinations but in the confusion of a shooting situation hens often get taken instead. Something to remember, especially while hunting, is that our brain does not recognize negative terms during high stress moments. If your primary thought in rising from the blind and shouldering your firearm is “Don’t shoot a hen,” you are highly likely to select a hen out of the mix at the moment of truth. That’s just how it works. Fixating your mind on a glossy green head, chestnut breast and bright grey belly or flank will more likely result in bringing the proper duck into your possession. Which is why it is important to know what kind of ducks are coming into your spread. Still, we sometimes have to pass

up shooting opportunities for want of certainty and legality. There are many publications that show detailed photos of both sexes of most species. And luckily, we also have the internet. There are countless videos of flocks of waterfowl in flight, at a distance and up close, identified by species and sex. If you watch enough of them, often enough, you’ll be able to notice the differences on the wing and at all ranges. If you, your guide or a party member identify the distant ducks approaching as goldeneyes or whistlers, you’ll know to pick out a drake showing a lot of white on their wing and body; if they are canvasbacks, look for red heads and light grey bodies. If it’s a mix you’ll still be able to visualize a proper target at the right time … if you know your ducks. Not all waterfowl species have strict limits for the hens but as a general conservation rule the female population is far more important for reproduction than the number of drakes. Plus, knowing beforehand exactly which ducks you want will allow you to focus sharper and shoot better. The final moment that morning resulted in three drakes and one hen. Nobody is perfect. p WEDNESDAY

Scary movies for an at-home Halloween party

I

f the pandemic is keeping your Halloween celebration indoors, there’s no reason you can’t have a scary movie marathon filled with plenty of tricks and treats. Below are five films with different levels of scares so you can have a safe and spooky holiday.

Hocus Pocus After moving to Salem, siblings Max (Omri Katz) and Dani (Thora Birch) find out there’s more than superstition to the legend of a trio of local witches. When Max accidentally wakes up the Sanderson sisters (Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker), the whole town of Salem falls under their spell. Can Max and Dani figure out a way to send the witches back to the grave? Featuring a zombie, an enchanted black cat, and plenty of witchy antics, Hocus Pocus has been a Halloween staple for years. The film is more silly fun than genuinely frightening, but Najimy, Midler and Parker offer up brilliant performances that will win over even hardened horror fans. This is a perfect introductory scary movie for anyone who might be susceptible to nightmares. Scare Rating: Good Ghouls of All Ages * PG * 96 mins. * Disney+

ParaNorman Norman (Kodi Smit-McPhee) has plenty of friends in his New England neighborhood, but there’s only one problem—they’re all dead. Though Norman’s talent allows him to keep close with his dead grandmother, no one else in town understands him. Regarded as a freak, Norman is ridiculed by family and classmates, until the legendary witch of Blithe Hollow awakens. Now the town is full of zombies and it’s up to Norman to speak to the local witch and convince her to return the town to normal and the dead to their graves. Can Norman help his town? And better yet, why should he? A brilliant parable about the dangers of mob mentality and condemning things you don’t understand, ParaNorman has a lot of heart along with some pretty decent scares. Laika Studios continues its trend of combining brilliant storytelling and awesome graphics with this Halloween tale that’s perfect for younger viewers or adults that want a little social commentary with their scares. Scare Rating: Tween Terrors and Up * PG * 92 mins. * Netflix

Good Manners Clara (Isabél Zuaa) is hired to help

Insured & Bonded

Ana (Marjorie Estiano) through a difficult pregnancy. Clara assumes she’ll be spending her days catering to pregnancy cravings and soothing mother-to-be worries. What she’s not planning on is watching her patient slaughter and eat a cat while sleepwalking during a full moon. But a little animal murder won’t dissuade Clara from her duties. How far will this dedicated nurse go to keep her charges safe? A scary and heartbreaking story of maternal protectiveness and the monsters we all become, Good Manners isn’t your typical monster movie, it’s basically a monster musical. Think of it as The Shape of Water meets Parenthood. This is a great option for adults who like to think with their chills and thrills.

Overlord On the eve of D-Day, paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines with one goal: Disable a radio tower in a small French town. It’s a simple enough mission, until the soldiers realize there’s more to the town than just a radio tower. The Nazis occupying the hamlet have been taking citizens into the bowels of their camp and experimenting on them. The resulting undead army might put a cramp in the American’s plans for the radio tower. Who doesn’t love a good zombie film? Underrated and underseen by most horror fans, Overlord is a rollicking good time with plenty of tropes and jokes. The winning cast make what could be a simple story of Nazi zombies into a great B-movie splatterfest. This is the perfect flick for horror fans who don’t mind a little blood and guts.

Hereditary After the death of her domineering mother, Annie (Toni Collette) has trouble coping with the loss and connecting with her family. Already suffering with the vestiges of abuse and trauma, Annie can’t seem to let go of her past or make inroads with her teen son. When an incomprehensible tragedy rocks the family, Annie’s tenuous grip on sanity begins to crack. Can Annie break free of her mother’s hold? Or is she doomed from the start? An unbearably tense and gory delight, Ari Aster’s debut film marries inherited trauma with actual trauma. Featuring a breathtaking performance by Collette and a some truly gnarly visuals, this isn’t a movie for the faint of heart. A brilliant piece of filmmaking that will stay with you long after you view it, Hereditary is for the brave. Scare Rating: Have a Therapist Ready * R * 127 mins. * Amazon Prime

NEWS OF THE WEIRD

COMPILED BY ANDREWS McMEEL SYNDICATION The Weirdo-American Community An unnamed 28-year-old man in search of a voluntary castration found himself drawn to a website offering such services, which led him to travel from Virginia to a cabin in the woods of Poteau, Oklahoma. There, on Oct. 12, Bob Lee Allen, 53, and Thomas Evans Gates, 42, allegedly relieved the victim of his testicles during a two-hour surgery, The Oklahoman reported. Allen told the victim that he has “a freezer of body parts” and that “he was going to consume the parts and laughed and said that he was a cannibal,” an affidavit said. The day following the operation, Allen took the victim to the hospital because he was bleeding badly, but cautioned him to say “he done it to himself.” The hospital contacted police, and investigators searched the property, finding suspected body parts in a deep freeze. Allen and Gates were charged with multiple felonies and misdemeanors, including conspiracy to commit unlicensed surgery and failure to bury the body parts.

Questionable Judgment Tynette Housley, 73, of Black Forest, Colorado, was cited by Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials after her “pet” deer attacked and gored a neighbor who was out walking her dog on Oct. 16. The buck, now sporting two-pronged antlers, was taken in by Housley when it was just a few days old and raised as a pet. The victim tried to run first to another neighbor’s home, then to her own, but the buck repeatedly knocked her down and gored her. A CPW officer euthanized the deer and took it for testing for rabies and other diseases. “We can’t say it enough: Wild animals are not pets,” said Frank McGee, CPW’s area wildlife manager. Housley was charged with illegal possession and illegal feeding of wildlife.

Man’s Best Friend • Veterinary researchers at the University of Helsinki have been testing whether dogs can sniff out COVID-19, and Anna Hielm-Bjorkman has the good news: They can. With almost 100% accuracy. “A dog could easily save so, so, so many lives,” she told DW. A pilot program at the Helsinki Airport is having travelers wipe their wrists or neck with a cloth, which the trained dogs then sniff. They can identify the virus up to five days before any symptoms appear. People who test positive at the voluntary canine site are directed to the airport’s medical unit for confirmation. Hielm-Bjorkman said travelers have been eager to participate, waiting up to an hour in line. • On the Italian island of Sardinia, farmer Cristian Mallocci welcomed a litter of five dogs on Oct. 9, Fox News reported. Among

them was a special pup—one with green fur, which Mallocci immediately named Pistachio. The other four dogs had white fur, like their mom. Green puppies are rare, but not unheard-of; scientists think it happens when the puppy makes contact with a green pigment in the womb. Pistachio’s color has faded since his birth, but he’ll keep his name, and Mallocci will keep him to help look after sheep on the farm.

Family Values Twifi, a startup internet provider in Switzerland, posted a Facebook ad with a compelling offer to parents-to-be: Name your child Twifus (for a boy) or Twifia (for a girl) in exchange for 18 years of free internet service. And sure enough, KidSpot.com reported, one young couple bit, giving their daughter the rewarding middle name. “The more I thought about it, the more unique the name became to me, and that’s when the thing acquired its charm,” the baby’s dad, 35, said. Mom went even deeper: “For me, the name Twifia also stands for connection in this context. The more often we say ‘Twifia,’ the heartier the name sounds!”

Over the Top • Superfan Luis Nostromo, 43, of Barcelona, Spain, has spent the last three years turning his apartment there into a stunning replica of the set of Alien, the 1979 Ridley Scott film starring Sigourney Weaver. His locations include the laboratory where the face-hugging monster attached to actor John Hurt was first examined; the spaceship’s corridors; and the pod that Weaver escapes in. Oddity Central reported that Nostromo hopes to finish his “Alien Museum” project by the end of the year and is already accepting visits from other fans. • In July, Taco Bell announced various changes to its menu, provoking uproar among some of its fans, Riverfront Times reported. But Bryant Hoban of O’Fallon, Missouri, saw an opportunity. When Hoban heard that the Potato Soft Taco was being sliced from the menu, he jumped in the car and headed to his nearest outlet, where he bought several of the items, then put them in his freezer. Then he listed three of them on Facebook Marketplace for $200. “These babies are rare!” he gushed. “Never been eaten!” It’s all part of Hoban’s scheme to start an “investment sandwich” business, he said. “You know, like the McRib—McDonald’s only offers it once a year, but the demand doesn’t go away.” Hoban has sold two of the tacos for $70 each: “I recouped my investment.”

Inexplicable A 17-year-old was taken into custody,

and to the hospital, after he caused a disturbance at a Petro Deli north of Topeka, Kansas, on Oct. 17. The teen, who was naked except for the ranch dressing smeared all over his body, damaged merchandise in the store, then ran out and jumped in a running car, which he crashed into a pillar, WIBW-TV reported. Investigators said he was “under the influence of a substance.” He was released to the custody of his parents.

What’s in a Name? Lawrence Crook, 37, of Jersey City, New Jersey, managed to live up to his name not once, but twice in one day on Oct. 8. In the first incident, Crook was seen loading “several blue and white striped bags” into a black SUV, according to Oddee.com. Lt. Antonio Granata said the witness confronted Crook, after which he fled on foot. The SUV had been reported stolen, and police found Crook in possession of methamphetamine along with drug paraphernalia. He was arrested and released on bond. But that was just the first part of his day. Later, a lieutenant with the Fairfield Fire Department saw Crook walking around in a fire station and rummaging through firefighters’ property. He was arrested again and now has two bonds, each set at $25,000.

Halloweird As Halloween approaches, residents in and around Concord, Massachusetts, are being treated to a spooky sight: A headless horseman, er, bikeman, is riding around on a blacked-out bike, strumming his guitar and waving to motorists and passersby. The Boston Globe reported on Oct. 20 that the ghoul is really Matthew Dunkle, 38, who has been known as the “bike-riding guy” in the area since 2015, when he went through a divorce and lost a grandparent. “I needed something special in my life,” Dunkle said. “I had a few smiles and people waved and people laughed and stuff. So that was kind of the beginning of it.” He actually donned the headless horseman costume in April, as the pandemic got going. “It just feels like we are kind of in the dark right now,” he said. “We are all just running around with our heads cut off.” p Send your weird news items with subject line WEIRD NEWS to WeirdNewsTips@amuniversal.com.

minutes from the letters in: Jerkwater (40 words)

Ever been to a jerkwater town? You know, the one-horse town so small the inhabitants share the horse. Initially, the word gives an impression of obnoxiously dorky residents, but it comes from a less demeaning source. Back when trains were steam-powered, they needed lots of water for their journey. Since trains couldn’t always make it to big towns, waystations were set up in small hamlets with water towers having a rope attached to a spigot. The crew would jerk the rope to pull the spigot into place to pour the water. A jerkwad, however, IS an obnoxious dork. Scoring: 31 - 40 = Aloft; 26 - 30 = Ahead; 21 - 25 = Aweigh; 16 - 20 = Amidships; 11 - 15 = Aboard; 05 - 10 = Adrift; 01 - 05 = Aground
