Chesapeake Country In Real Life

H

old onto your masks (err, hats), Chesapeake Country: Experiences are back. You know, the kind you can best appreciate in person—the ones where “virtual” just isn’t the same. Now that COVID-19 vaccinations are open to all adults in Maryland and half of us have had at least one shot, CDC guidance says public life is safer than it was a year ago. While some things have been coming back little by little (schools, restaurant dining, services like the public library), others have been on hold completely. Live theater, for example, typically takes place indoors in venues where people are seated close together, and the players are projecting their voices to speak or sing. Aside from a handful of creative outdoor shows, most performances had to happen exclusively online—or not at all. Pivoting to virtual

performances is a commendable accomplishment during these trying times, but as theater lovers and performers will tell you, it just doesn’t create the same chemistry as live interactions between actor and audience. Now, after a lot of patience and flexibility, one all-volunteer theater group has found a way to safely put on in-person performances (page 18), and CBM Bay Weekly gets to bring our Playgoer theater critic, Jim Reiter, back for the first time in more than a year. Another sorely missed experience in our boat-centric region: the major boat shows that usually mark the seasons in Maryland. There are the fall sail and powerboat shows that transform Annapolis City Dock, the indoor Baltimore Boat Show where we dream of summertime, and the springtime Bay Bridge and Annapolis Spring Sailboat

shows that (unofficially) kick off boating season. Sadly, large gatherings like boat shows, where people tend to wait in line and gather around entrances, were just too dangerous at the height of the pandemic, in populated areas like Annapolis and indoor settings like the Baltimore Convention Center. Boaters and potential boat-buyers have been taking virtual tours or making private appointments dealer by dealer, but it’s just not the same as walking the boat show docks to take it all in. With COVID-19 vaccination rates up and case rates lower, the boating industry is saying the show must go on—but with modifications—just as the theater world has. This weekend Annapolis Boat Shows will combine their Spring Sailboat Show with the Bay Bridge Boat Show together as one,

just over the bridge in Stevensville, with safety measures in place. For the first time in over a year, Marylanders can check out hundreds of boats all in one place and learn skills and tips from our CBM seminars (page 4). So, whether it’s that “new boat smell” you get at a boat show or the palpable emotion of a live theater performance you’ve been missing, now is your chance. And if neither of these tickles your fancy, Bay Weekly’s Bay Planner stays on top of all the other experiences waiting for you this weekend: An electric car show? Guided walking tour? Fairy and Gnome Festival? Get out there and experience.  p

Severna Park Teen Named Top Youth Volunteer

vice project to fulfill her Girl Scout silver award requirements. “I thought of doing an oyster restoration, so I researched more about oysters.” With the help of the Oyster RecovLily McCallister. ery Partnership, Photo courtesy the Magothy River Prudential. Association, and her Girl Scout troop, McCallister put oyster shells set with spat into the water at two different marinas. The Oyster Recovery Partnership supplied the oysters and the Magothy River Association helped to set up the cages. Every week at the marinas, McCallister and her volunteers shook the cages so the baby oysters wouldn’t be covered in muck. She was dedicated through any weather, caring for the oysters rain or shine. After the season of growing, it was time to move the oysters into the wild. Transporting the now-grown oysters to a protected reef was the next step. Brad Knoff, a volunteer at MRA, was a mentor to McCallister during this time. “He’s the one who got me and my Girl Scout troop started, he taught us everything,” she said. McCallister said her favorite part was dumping the oysters in the protected reef with her best friend. “That moment felt like all my hard work would actually serve for the health of the Bay. I will cherish that moment forever.” She says it was also the most shocking piece of the project: She didn’t realize that to put the oysters in the reef, all she had to do was

throw them overboard. McCallister’s devotion to science started when she was very young. When asked about her love of science, she talked about her mom’s influence as a seventh-grade science teacher and Girl Scouts leader. “She got me and my sister interested in it because she would always get us involved. She’s really made an impact on me with science.” McCallister’s mother created a “crime lab” for them to investigate and look at evidence under a microscope and over quarantine they even made elaborate Rube Goldberg machine-style contraptions together. “She would bring in lab supplies as part of our Halloween party. One year, we had ‘elephant toothpaste’ oozing out of pumpkins. She always encouraged me to do science fair projects. I won my first county science fair in 3rd grade with my art robot.” McCallister says she is honored to win the Prudential Spirit of Community Award. She entered herself, going through a lot of paperwork to get there. She says she looks forward to taking science and environmental classes in high school. But she is unsure of what kind of career they will lead her to, saying she will “see where that leads my interest.” McCallister says she will not stop here, as she is determined to continue her work in the Chesapeake Bay. “I don’t think I will maybe ever stop. I think I will always come back to these marinas and shake them [the cages].”

ily McCallister may be just a 13-yearold eighth grader, but she is doing great things already. McCallister was named one of Maryland’s top youth volunteers of 2021 by the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards—thanks to her work in oyster restoration. She will receive a $2,500 scholarship, a silver medallion, and an invitation to the program’s virtual national recognition celebration in April. From there, 10 of the 102 state honorees will be named America’s top youth volunteers of the year. Winners will receive another $5,000 scholarship, a gold medallion, a crystal trophy, and a $5,000 grant for a non-profit charitable organization of their choice. The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards is conducted annually by Prudential Financial with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). McCallister was selected because of her volunteer work in her community. The selection process considers impact, effort, initiative and the personal growth demonstrated over the course of the project. Two years ago, McCallister learned about pollutants in the Chesapeake Bay and realized she had to help. “In science class, we had learned about pollutants in our Bay and the topic of oysters being natural filters intrigued my interest,” McCallister said. She also needed a ser-

LARGEST COMBINED SPRING SAIL, POWERBOAT SHOW KICKS OFF ON KENT ISLAND BY STEVE ADAMS

J

ust like that, the boats (and boat shows) are back. After more than a year without even one of our region’s favorite nautical events taking place (the 2020 Bay Bridge Boat Show, Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show, U.S. Powerboat Show, U.S. Sailboat Show, and Baltimore Boat Show were all canceled due to the pandemic), a reimagined Bay Bridge Boat Show kicks off in Stevensville Md. this Thursday, April 15. Combining its two spring shows in one, Annapolis Boat Shows claims that the new-look event will not only be one of the first boat shows in the country to be produced post-pandemic, but also the largest combined in-water sailboat and powerboat show in the Mid-Atlantic. “2020 was a tough year for boat shows worldwide, and we are thrilled to kick off the boating season on the Chesapeake Bay with the rebirth of our spring shows,” said Paul Jacobs, President of Annapolis Boat Shows. “Our new, combined show will offer one complete fourday experience for all boaters—both sail and power.” As always, the most essential element of this experience will be the display boats. From catamarans and monohulls to racing boats and cruisers, hundreds of sailboats will join over 400 powerboats of all shapes and sizes in a marina of floating docks and on the shore. Show goers will have the opportunity to climb aboard and compare new, premiering, and brokerage power and sail

For a blast from the past, the Chesapeake Bay Antique & Classic Boat Society will be displaying classic wooden boats, vintage racers, and other antique boats from around the Bay. Chesapeake Bay Media and our sister company, Annapolis School of Seamanship, are happy to join the show’s special offerings: our experts will host free, one-hour seminars on topics like Boat Buying 101, Docking & Line Handling, Weekends on the Chesapeake, and Sailing Annapolis to Bermuda. Show visitors can also sea-trial more than two dozen boats at the demo dock, learn how to customize fishing rods, and take in a land display of classic cars, in-

ne week after two brothers, just 13 and 15 years old, went missing in a canoe on the mighty Potomac River, and were found safe on the other side three days later, the boys’ family is sharing their message with Bay Bulletin. In a letter to the editor, Stephen Clark, the father of Josiah (15) and Jesse Clark (13), writes, in part: My two boys are home safe. I can’t thank everyone enough for coming alongside my family in our time of need. I say “everyone” because that was my perspective. I have never been involved in an event where so many people and agencies came together in such a short time to accomplish a common good. The scenario would be scary for any parent. Maryland Natural Resources Police say the Clark boys left home at 9:30 on the night of April 3, from their home near Harry James Creek in Ridge, on the St. Mary’s County side of the Potomac. The Coast Guard reported the boys took a 17-foot silver canoe with black paddles, two life jackets, and a backpack with MREs (meals ready-toeat) and other survival equipment. On Tuesday evening the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office reported that the boys were found “safe and unharmed” near Coles Point, Va., which is across and well upriver on the Potomac from Harry James Creek. It was a huge relief to anyone following the search for the boys, given the long distance and often choppy conditions on the river. Clark describes the outpouring of prayers and support from neighbors, friends, and volunteer search teams: Thanks to those who prepared and brought us and the volunteers food, water, ice, alcohol wipes and other supplies donated from Ridge Dollar General, Panera Bread, Papa John’s, Boomerangs, Mission BBQ, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Ridge VFD Auxiliary. Thanks to those who took their own commercial boats, personal boats, kayaks, and vehicles out to search for our boys. Thank you to the drone teams and the K-9 teams for their efforts, and the news agencies on social media who got the word out so quickly. Thank you to our church family who ministered to us continually throughout. This community and beyond came to our aid. Clark acknowledges the full extent of the search effort, listing the emergency


agencies and even military agencies that helped find his sons safely. Assets from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Ridge Fire Department as well as other St Mary’s Second District and Seventh District Fire Departments, Naval District Washington Fire Department (St. Inigoes), St Mary’s County Sheriff ’s Department, Calvert County Sheriff ’s Department Search and Rescue, Charles County Dive Rescue, Smith’s Point Rescue and the Virginia Marine Police, the Northumberland and Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Department in Virginia, U.S. Navy SAR team, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy Test Pilot School, Southern Maryland Paddlers kayak club and the Civil Air Patrol. All working together to find our boys. All the while both of them were completely unaware of what they had put into motion, but are now recognizing the gravity of the situation. And finally, the boys’ father addresses possible criticism that the boys’ decision to take off alone in a canoe was a costly waste of resources. He writes, in part: If all we take away from this is that we spent a lot of money, effort, and time on the shenanigans of two mischievous kids, we are missing the bigger picture. Our nation is becoming a divided nation…and it is filtering down to even our community. For at least two days last week in this very little part of our world the actions of two boys brought this community together in unity and love.

A Ride on the Night Owl Amtrak launches overnight train to Boston BY JUDY COLBERT

the first one, you know?” Carlos “I t’s Aguilar, the sleeping car attendant

simultaneously asked and stated when I boarded Amtrak train 66 at the BWI station on Monday, April 5, at 10:33 p.m. “I know,” I responded (beamed, actually). Carlos echoes my excitement at the thought of taking the first overnight sleeper to Boston. As I was the only sleeper passenger boarding here, he offered a friendly, “This way, Judy,” leading me to my bedroom. Face masks are required in and around the station and on the train at all times unless you’re eating or drinking. He showed me around the bedroom, the light switches, closet, temperature controls, bathroom, and the call button if I needed him during the night. “Breakfast is available in the café car starting at 6 a.m.,” he said, or he could bring packaged snacks to me now. “Can I get anything for you?” Although I was entitled to a drink, I declined. “Would you like me to make the bed now?” My quick, “YES” was perhaps a little exuberant. The April 5 train was the first sleeper service on this line since 2003 when it was called the Night Owl (and still is by some). Imagine, falling asleep in Baltimore and waking up in time to

At $284 for a roomette and $376 for a bedroom (a second passenger is $112 although Amtrak sometimes offers price cuts) before applying any discounts (senior, military, children, etc.), many think it’s more economical than flying to Boston and spending the night in a hotel. It’s

certainly less stressful. The Viewliner sleeping car has one wheelchair-accessible bedroom, two bedrooms with a connecting door, and 12 roomettes. Bedrooms are larger than roomettes and have a private shower/toilet room. Roomettes include a toilet and access to a larger bathroom and shower at the end of the car. In either case, the sofa or chairs convert to a bed and an overhead bed is lowered into place. I was too excited to sleep, so I watched See NIGHT OWL on page 6

the lights in the dark countryside pass and listened to the train changing tracks. The train rocks or wobbles, and, whether you’re in a bedroom and sleeping perpendicular to the train direction or in a roomette and sleeping parallel will determine which way your body wobbles. I love the wobbles, so it’s not surprising

that I woke a little after 2 a.m. to realize the train wasn’t moving. It’s a scheduled hour plus layover at New York’s Penn Station. It might be nice to step off the train to look at the spectacular new Moynihan Train Hall or visit the Metropolitan Lounge (which a sleeper car ticket grants you access to). I woke again to no motion as a piece of malfunctioning equipment was being replaced in New Haven, Conn. The 90-minute delay was reflected in a late arrival in Boston. That’s a condition Amtrak riders have to consider. While Northeast Corridor trains generally run on time, you have to assume it just might not. Heading south (train 67 on weeknights and train 65 on Friday and Saturday nights), the service leaves Boston at 9:30 p.m. and arrives in Baltimore a little after 6 a.m. and BWI by 6:30 a.m. On Friday and Saturday nights, it’s train 65 and it arrives about 30 minutes earlier. Take note: the BWI station closes at 9:45 p.m., so there is no indoor waiting room. For reservations, go to www.Amtrak.com or call 1 800-USA-RAIL (872-7245).

Live Theater Returns to Stage BY JIM REITER

Colonial Players presents Laura Gayvert and Ben Carr in Maytag Virgin by local playwright Audrey Cefaly. Photo by Brandon Bentley. 6 • BAY WEEKLY • April 15 - April 22, 2021

olonial Players, the all-volunteer community theater that has been entertaining Annapolis for more than 70 years, welcomed a live audience this weekend for the first time since COVID-19 shut down operations more than a year ago. The reopening is limited, with only 30 to 45 of the theater’s 180 seats being sold for Maytag Virgin, by local playwright Audrey Cefaly, which will run for two more weekends. The normal in-the-round stage has been reconfigured to ensure distancing between the two-person cast and the audience, masking will be enforced, and a host of changes were made to the East Street building’s heating and air conditioning system to improve ventilation and safety. Colonial Players is offering streaming See THEATER on next page

for Maytag Virgin and will continue the option for subsequent productions, but, says President Steve Tobin, “There is something about the ‘feedback-loop’ that occurs between performer and audience member [in person] that cannot be reproduced by a camera.” Tobin says the theater’s leaders began thinking about how to reopen almost as soon as the shutdown began. The theater sent questionnaires to its members, volunteers, and subscribers to gauge their thoughts on how and when to reopen the doors. “We participated in countless roundtables, workshops, and discussion groups at the local and national levels to see what needed to be done to keep everyone safe at the theater—audience, performers, crew, ushers, box office, and volunteers.” The fact that Colonial Players owns its building on East Street, as well as a separate rehearsal and storage space, gave the company flexibility in making improvements, says Wes Bedsworth, operations and technical director. But owning comes at a price, too. “The expenses of owning don’t stop just because performances and income stop,” Bedsworth says. “Electricity, gas, water, fire alarm monitoring, insurance, taxes—none of those went down.” Utilizing grant funding offered to arts organizations during the pandemic, Colonial considered the improvements

“There is something about the shared space and experience of both the performers and the audience that is extraordinary.” —LAURA GAYVERT, CO-STAR OF MAYTAG VIRGIN made to its air filtration system a longterm investment. “The new system creates an ion flow that kills all viruses, not just coronavirus,” Bedsworth says. A professional cleaning company comes in before each performance weekend to perform an anti-viral fog treatment. Edd Miller, who directs Maytag Virgin, says, “It’s been a challenge to prepare a cast when you don’t know the opening date. It was only going to be streamed, then it was to open in February, then in March … we were adjusting as we went. The advantage was we had time to dig deeper into the nuances of the play and the characters’ back stories.” Restrictions meant no more than five people at a rehearsal, all masked, with the two-person cast wearing clear plas-

tic shields. “It’s hard to direct or act intimate moments without seeing each other’s faces,” says Miller. And while the new stage configuration means new artistic challenges, “it does guarantee that the unmasked cast and the masked audience are separated safely.” “Theater is a collaborative form and the audience is a part of that collaboration,” says Miller. “A laugh, or even silence during a tender moment, is equally meaningful. We’re all looking forward to the energy and feedback an audience will bring.” Ben Carr, who co-stars in Maytag Virgin with Laura Gayvert, says, “The energy that an audience brings to a show has the ability to completely transform a

production. Plays are written to be performed live and there is no substitute for the real thing.” “Many theaters have made wonderful strides using virtual platforms, but there is something about the shared space and experience of both the performers and the audience that is extraordinary,” says Gayvert. Maytag Virgin, she added, “is a beautiful, funny, heart-breaking, life-affirming play about trusting the person next to you, about survival. I can’t imagine a better show with which to begin again.” Jim Reiter was lucky enough to catch an early performance of Maytag Virgin and reviews it in the return of our Playgoer column, page 18.

AN UPDATE ON OTHER THEATERS: 2nd Star Productions and Bowie Community Theater both await word from the City of Bowie on when the Bowie Playhouse will open and under what restrictions. Annapolis Shakespeare Company plans to welcome audiences back this summer for Servant of Two Masters in the Reynolds Tavern courtyard, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Historic London Town’s Gresham Estate. Cabaret and main stage offerings are available on demand, and a monthly jazz night is open to audiences at the West Street location. Annapolis Summer Garden Theater has canceled this summer’s season. Children’s Theater of Annapolis opened to a limited audience the first weekend of March; next is Disney’s Frozen Jr. in June. Compass Rose Theater’s activities are canceled until further notice. Twin Beach Players plans to return to in-person performances in October with a production of Frankenstein. Virtual productions continue for the summer teen show and the 16th Annual Kids Playwriting Festival.

Shutting Out Doubts College football player tackles her critics BY KERI LUISE

A

s a kid, Alyssa Linkous would head straight to the backyard as soon as she got home from school so she could play football with her dad and brothers. These casual games grew into a passion for Linkous and playing football

became all she wanted to do. Linkous, now 19, started playing football in Dunkirk with the Calvert Youth Flag Football League from age 8 until she turned 17, under the coaching of her stepfather, Nick Ferguson. “I continued to play ... as I got older I started going to tournaments,” Linkous says. “Playing in these tournaments I was the only girl on the team and only played against boys ... At one point I was the only girl in the entire league.” According to Linkous’ mom, Nadreen

Alyssa Linkous has been playing football for most of her life, even traveling to play with the Staten Island Giants travel team. 8 • BAY WEEKLY • April 15 - April 22, 2021

“I started falling in love with the game so I started shutting out what everyone else thought ... A lot of players and some coaches would make comments about a girl playing football.” Alyssa Linkous (far left) now plays flag football for Ottawa University in Kansas. Photo courtesy Nadreen Ferguson. Ferguson, not enough girls had signed up for the Calvert League to make an all-girls team. “She played on the all-boys team and outworked and outshined most of the boys in the league,” Nadreen says. “Everyone was so excited to see a girl beating up on the guys, that people would constantly approach her and tell her how awesome she is and to keep up the hard work.” Being the only girl in the Calvert County league did present challenges for Linkous but also motivated her to keep pushing forward. “Being the only girl was hard at first. I felt like sometimes I wasn’t allowed to be playing on the team, but it didn’t stop me,” Linkous says. “I started falling in love with the game so I started shutting out what everyone else thought ... A lot of players and some coaches would make comments about a girl playing football. I never saw anything wrong with it.” Linkous says she has faced challenges of males telling her she’s “not good enough or strong enough to play this sport.” “Being a female involved in football wasn’t easy, it still isn’t easy. But it’s definitely motivated me to never stop being the person I am,” Linkous says. “Just because some people think football is a male sport doesn’t mean a thing. It’s made me push myself because I was doubted by a lot of people. Being doubted only gave me more of a push to become the person I am today.” From powderpuff games at Northern High School to pro bowl games, Linkous has pushed to play football at every opportunity she gets. She played for the New York Staten Island Giants all-girls travel football team for two years before entering college. “I played on a pro bowl team with Coach Mark Stubbs. I’ve played on my dad’s team in the Calvert flag league. I played with Coach Mike Colt and Coach James Mazziotta. I played with D4 as well—an adult league with [Hall of Fame quarterback] Charlie McCaffrey,” Linkous says. Her passion and work paid off: Linkous was awarded a flag football scholarship at Ottawa University in Kansas under the coaching of Liz Sowers. “At

the time I didn’t think It was possible,” Linkous says. “She told me she would offer me a scholarship [and] it felt even more unreal.” “We need to have more women getting even more flag scholarships in college so when that 10-year-old girl is looking up and wondering, ‘What can I do and what do I want to be when I get older?’ She has the opportunity to do and be whatever she wants,” Sowers says. According to Ferguson, Linkous is currently number one at Ottawa University in receiving yards and touch-

—ALYSSA LINKOUS downs. “She has set the bar high for the younger generations of females and is still going,” Ferguson says. Linkous hopes to become a wellknown football player and continue to play until she can’t anymore, eventually becoming a coach and “help other little girls live out their dreams.” “I would tell any girl playing any sport, especially football, to never stop pushing yourself. Always keep your head up when all seems to fail,” Linkous says. “Most importantly, be you, do you, for you. Don’t let a male change the way you feel about a sport.”

Hitting the Right Notes: State song repealed BY KATHY KNOTTS

My Maryland,” which “M aryland, has been the state song since

1939, has had its swan song. The General Assembly has passed legislation to remove it from the state’s repertoire as a regional anthem. Lawmakers have been working to replace or remove the song since the 1970s due to its praise of the Confederacy, divisive language and criticism of President Abraham Lincoln. Set to the tune of “O’ Tannebaum,” the lyrics come from a Civil War-era poem penned by Baltimore author James Ryder Randall in 1861 written in response to the Baltimore riot that year. The lyrics refer to “Northern scum”, urge Marylanders to fight for the Confederacy and call President Lincoln a despot and tyrant. Del. Sheree Sample-Hughes’ (D-Dorchester and Wicomico counties) House Bill 667 and Senate Bill 8 sponsored by Montgomery County Sen. Cheryl Kagan (D) passed through both chambers and are now on Governor Hogan’s desk. The legislation strikes the song from the state list with no replacement. At press time, Hogan had not yet signed the bill.

hesapeake Region Accessible Boating, known as CRAB, celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, with a yearlong party that includes a special gift to the region. A new adaptive boating center, touted as one of the best in the country, will open next summer to bring the “thrill, freedom and therapeutic value of sailing to those with disabilities, wounded warriors and children from under-served communities.”

CRAB’s leadership met with local officials Monday to cut the cake and kick off their celebration. At the ceremony, the state, county and City of Annapolis presented proclamations. “This gives the ability for nearly everybody in the city to get to the waterfront and actually touch and feel the water,” said Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley. “This facility will make Annapolis one of the most inclusive places in the country. And inclusivity is what we’re all fighting for.” CRAB skipper Steve Ritterbush praises the organization for getting him back on the water. “To me, it’s my church,” he said. “After I fell about six years ago, I was totally paralyzed. I couldn’t do any of the activities I loved to do, whether it be boating, fishing, running, camping.” CRAB helps people like Ritterbush leave their wheelchairs and worries on the dock—and go sailing. Founded by Annapolis resident Don Backe in 1991 after he was paralyzed in a car wreck, the program has grown tremendously. For the last 30 years, CRAB has operated out of a single floating pier at Sandy Point State Park. “In those days, if they took out 400 guests, that was a huge, huge year,” says CRAB Executive Director Paul “Bo” Bollinger. Now they take out well over 1,000. The success means they’ve outgrown their current home. In 2017, a long process to find a new marina began. On September 2, 2020, the State of Maryland Board of Public Works unanimously approved the $1.8 million Program Open Space grant for the City of Annapolis to acquire property at 7040 Bembe Beach Road for $2,250,000. Anne Arundel County contributed $1.3M and the City of Annapolis committed $500,000 of their funding, in addition to the $1M committed by the State of Maryland in the 2019 Capital Improvement budget. The City of Annapolis closed on the property, formerly the Port Williams Marina, Oct. 30 and CRAB signed a 40-year lease with the City of Annapolis on Nov. CONTINUED O

CRAB Executive Director Paul “Bo” Bollinger says there are currently 1,200 boat slips on all of Back Creek and none are handicapped accessible. “We have .86 acres of property here, including the original home on the property. It will be torn down and, in its place, will be the adaptive boating center.”

19, 2020. Bollinger says there are currently 1,200 boat slips on all of Back Creek and none are handicapped accessible. “We have .86 acres of property here, including the original home on the property. It will be torn down and, in its place, will be the adaptive boating center,” he said. The CRAB center will feature the 2,600-square-foot Don Backe Learning Center with modern floating docks that exceed ADA standards and are fitted with several Hoyer lifts to transfer guests from wheelchairs into a CRAB sailboat or privately-owned boat. It will hold staff offices, a new marina and boathouse, and a pavilion. The center will also be a model of environmental stewardship using solar energy, recycled building materials, and rain garden landscaping. Everything will be barrier free and accessible for those with disabilities. Beyond sailing, the marina will include a boat slip for a new pontoon boat that can take guests in wheelchairs out on the Bay to fish, crab, wakeboard or earn

their Maryland boating certification. CRAB will offer boating instruction, the chance to learn about marine trades and offer job training and internship programs, STEM programming, and exercise classes taught by licensed instructors or therapists. Additional adaptive water sports and programs will be offered at the center to expand outreach to more guests including paddleboarding, kayaking, and remote-controlled sailboat racing. There is also talk of adding a larger sailboat to CRAB’s existing fleet so guests can participate in Wednesday night sailboat racing. The new center has plenty of support in the region. Del. Shaneka Henson (D30A) was on hand Monday to celebrate CRAB’s success and said the county’s $75,000 financial contribution to the project was going to good use. “We’re

going to contribute some handicapped accessible restrooms ... for guests so that they can be able to make sure they freshen up before they get on the boats.” The biggest private donation yet— $100,000—was presented by Lex Birney, CEO of The Brick Companies, in memory of his father, Arthur Birney, who loved to sail. The money will be used to build a Serenity Park that includes the aforementioned pavilion. Lex Birney recalls racing to Bermuda with his father on a 48-foot schooner in the early ‘70s. “It really shaped our relationship and our lives. And he really passed onto me the values that come along with sailing ... you learn from adversity.” “As he would have said, he loved schooners, and in the terminology of schooners, you would sit in a boat after a long

day and have a ‘gam [social visit with fellow mariners],’” Birney says. “So, we hope that many people will have many gams.” CRAB hopes to continue to help others find their own islands of peace for years to come. “CRAB has been providing this service free of charge to people with disabilities for nearly 27 years with zero public money,” said Bollinger. The new marina will accommodate a fleet that has grown over its 30-year history. The new docks will have an 80-foot T-head of unobstructed docking space to allow guests to be picked up by family and friends who aren’t on a CRAB boat. “Not only can I sail in the CRAB boat but many of my friends can bring their boats by and have me lifted in and I can go out with them for an afternoon,” said Ritterbush. The new adaptive boating center is expected to open in April 2022. “You will change people’s lives with this initiative and I thank you for the passion,” said Buckley. “I know it didn’t happen overnight, you told me it didn’t happen overnight, you kept fighting and fighting and you never gave up.” p Kathy Knotts contributed to this story.

#2 WEST FRIENDSHIP ROAD

Friendship, MD 20758

n Easter Sunday, my wife and I went to Ladew Topiary Gardens in Monkton. In open areas, the wind was cold but in protected areas it was pleasantly warm. We were early for most flowering plants, so we took a walk on the nature trail. At a far corner of the property is a tan-colored pond. There, protected from the wind, were several painted turtles comfortably sunning themselves. They did not drop into the water as I expected and seemed to dismiss my presence. Painted turtles are North America’s most common freshwater turtle. At least one of four subspecies is found from Canada to Alabama and from the East Coast to the West Coast. The subspecies have pretty mundane names: north, south, midland, and west. All have stripes of yellow and red on a dark neck which is how they earned the name “painted”. All have a dark carapace (the top of the shell) with red-streaked edges and the southern subspecies has a red stripe down the middle. All the subspecies except the western painted turtle have a yellow plastron (the bottom of the shell). The

western subspecies have a lovely red and yellow geometric pattern on the plastron. These turtles continue to grow with age and can live to over 35 years old. There are reports of painted turtles living for over 50 years. The females reach sexual maturity after their sixth year and males after four years. Eggs are laid within 200 yards of their home waters. The females will lay several clutches of eight to 20 eggs each season. The eggs take around 80 days to hatch but they are constantly at risk of being dug up or becoming too wet or too dry. The turtles are omnivores, meaning they eat plants, insects, fish, and any other animal they can catch. In the winter, they bury into the bottom of their pond or lake and hibernate. They can live for months without breathing air. As a cold-blooded reptile, they warm up in the sun, and once warm, they slide into the water to forage for food. Turtles will repeat the sunning and then foraging several times a day. They are the most common turtle sold

as a pet, but because they frequently carry invasive salmonella, they should not be handled without a thorough clean-up after. Since they live a long time, adopting one as a pet must be a long-term commitment.

The Edible and Tasty Chickweed

C

hickweed or Stellaria media, is a delicious delicate low-growing wild plant that will please your palate. It’s abundant this year with all the rainy weather we’ve experienced. When gathered appropriately, it has one of the freshest, most delicate flavors and textures, great for salads or pesto. Chickweed is a moisture-loving, cold-tolerant plant that thrives in soft

16 • BAY WEEKLY • April 15 - April 22, 2021

rich soil. It’s native to Europe and is commonly found in lawns, gardens, pastures and fields. Chickweed grows in massive spurts in the spring and will grow lushly as long as the weather is cool and there is plenty of moisture. One of the single most important identifying features of chickweed is the Mohawk-style hairs running along the length of each stem segment. If

you can’t see the stem-hairs clearly, hold the plant up to the light. Leaf blades range in shape from elliptical to egg-shaped with a pointed tip. The flowers are distinctive and tiny with five bright white petals in the shape of bunny ears. The petals are so deeply cleft that, at first glance, one would think there are 10. Chickweed is high in both iron and zinc, higher than any domesticated greens. It is also very high in potassium, higher than spinach, Swiss chard and broccoli. The juice from the crushed leaves can be used to soothe irritate skin or eyes. The tender 2-inch-long young leafy stem tips are edible, raw or cooked. Use them like lettuce or alfalfa sprouts. Mouse-ear chickweed, Cerastium fontanum, is an edible look-alike. It grows flatter and has more hairs. Cumin chickweed has a single line of hairs along the stem. There is a poisonous look-alike known as scarlet pimpernel or Anagallis arvensis, it has square stems, lacks the prominent hairs and has reddish flowers. Common chickweed has white flowers. Collect the top two inches of common chickweed to make a great spring pesto. Put 2 cups of packed chickweed into a food processor. Pulse until chopped and add ½ cup extra virgin olive oil, two garlic cloves, a dash of salt, 2 teaspoons rice vinegar, ½ cup of parmesan cheese, ¼ cup toasted pumpkin seeds and ¼ cup walnuts. Blend well and pour over whole wheat pasta.

There are some really big striped bass being taken and released by anglers practicing for opening day of the FISHFINDER trophy season and hopes are high that the weather will remain cooperative enough to get out and chase some. Trolling is traditionally the top method of scoring big fish with the size limit remaining at 35 inches for the season that runs from May 1 through 15. Possession limit is one fish per angler. Trophy-sized fish can be taken on cut baits but finding the fish can be a problem as they are constantly on the move this time of year. The best tactics are to fish often and long and use either jumbo bloodworms or big cuts of fresh menhaden (aka alewife or bunker). Circle hooks are mandatory. real interesting if you don’t mind its lack of beauty. Native to the Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, and Rio Grande river basins, blue catfish have been introduced to 20 other states in the nation; it’s no surprise they finally arrived in the Tidewater. First released in Virginia’s James River in the ridiculous belief they couldn’t migrate into the Bay, they spread throughout the Bay and its tributaries in a matter of a few years. Taking further advantage of federal and state fishery management failures and a plunging striped bass population, the species has firmly established itself all the way into the headwaters of the Chesapeake. On the plus side, the blue catfish is high quality on the table and can reach prodigious sizes. With an estimated life span of over 20 years, a 200-pounder may not be out of the question sometime in the future. A 143-pound state record fish was taken in Virginia in 2011, by Nick Anderson out of Kerr Lake near Clarksville. It was 57 inches long and took almost an hour to land on 30-pound line.

population in Bay tributaries may well accelerate the growth of some of these big guys. My first big blue was, of course, an accident. A friend and I were fishing big cuts of fresh menhaden last season hoping for a big migrating rockfish when the blue hit. The species is definitely partial to menhaden, shad, herring, spot, and other oily baits as well as crab, shrimp and even worms. But they also won’t hesitate to inhale a large chunk of chicken breast whenever they’re hungry, which is always. Also known to occasionally strike lures, their primary means of feeding is smell oriented and bottom fishing fresh baits is as sure a method of seducing a bite as any. An electric fish knife has made the previously onerous task of filleting a blue a quick and easy 4-minute task. The best eating sizes are four to 10 pounds. On the table they are excellent in finger-sized pieces, fried crispy with a panko coating. Broiled fillets with a light coating of spices and mayo or baked with potatoes, onions and carrots will also please most palates as will shredded catfish tacos along with your favorite salsa. p

Six Minutes to Midnight

The spy story isn’t nearly as interesting as the rest of this drama

T

he Augusta Victoria College sat placidly by the sea in Sussex, England for years. The finishing school for elite German families trained girls on social graces and English proficiency. In the late 1930s, however, the girls school takes on a more sinister nature. English agents know the school now holds daughters from the most prominent Nazi families. With war inevitable, they want to send a spy into the school to keep an eye on the girls, whom they regard as powerful bargaining chips. The spy they choose is Thomas Mill-

er (Eddie Izzard: The High Note), a half-German man who isn’t too keen on the prospect of holding children hostage as part of the war effort. As he gets to know the girls, he sees just how misled they have been. As he begins to doubt his mission, he discovers a troubling detail: The other teacher, Frau Keller (Carla Juri: Amulet) may be working on collecting valuable intelligence for Germany as they hurtle toward war. Can Miller stop the plot and save the girls? Writer/producer and star Izzard grew up in the shadow of the Augusta Victoria College, which was a real German finishing school until 1939. This film was a passion project for Izzard, featuring an obscure part of British history. Unfortunately, the fictional spy yarn Izzard weaves around the truth is slapdash and a little uninteresting. There’s

aytag Virgin is a delightful yet profound work by local playwright Audrey Cefaly that has received glowing reviews at professional theaters across the country. It is now on stage at Colonial Players, the amateur company in downtown Annapolis that reopened last weekend via streaming and, with restrictions, to audiences for its 72nd season. The two-person play is about what its

Miss Rocholl (Judi Dench: Blithe Spirit), the movie looks at those in wealthy English society who excused the more horrifying aspects of the Nazi party, admiring the strength it projected. It would be a telling bit of criticism if the movie spent more than five minutes developing the idea. Though the spy storyline is the weakest, Izzard is undoubtedly the star of the show. After decades of honing her stage presence as a standup comedian, Izzard is magnetic on screen. It’s thanks to her that the spy sections of the film work at all. She has a natural chemistry with the girls in the film, and more scenes of Miller bonding with the girls would have gone a long way to sell the tensions in the film. It’s thanks to sheer charm that she keeps the third act from succumbing to the weight of deus ex machina and silly coincidences. Augusta Victoria College is a fascinating and little-known piece of British history, but the social implications of the finishing school are far more interesting than any fabricated spy story. If you’re looking for a spy lark, this $6 rental will likely keep you entertained, but I am duty-bound as a cinephile to tell you that the vastly superior Eye of the Needle is available for free on Amazon Prime.

Maytag Virgin at Colonial Players

a much more fascinating film at the heart of this piece—the story of girls steeped in German propaganda who begin to question it when experiencing life in England. Director Andy Goddard (Carnival Row) doesn’t seem particularly interested in the espionage storyline either. There are a few attempts at stylish reveals, thanks in large part to some nifty camerawork by Chris Seager (Watchmen). But sadly, the spycraft in Six Minutes to Midnight mostly involves long shots of Izzard running—on the beach, over rocks, through valleys. The film also hinges upon lots of trained spies revealing large sections of their plans in rooms they haven’t checked for security. It’s a shame so much time is spent on this and not on the more interesting story. The girls at the college are impressionable, with young Gretel (Tijan Marei: Wolfsland) already clearly unsure of the Nazi doctrine and her fellow Germans. As Miller begins to teach and the war nears, more of the girls experience doubts about the political climate they’ll be returning to. Six Minutes to Midnight also looks at the willful ignorance of those who supported appeasement and tacitly revered the National Socialist Movement. Embodied by the character of

author describes as “the great paradox. When we love fully, we lose a part of ourselves.” Both characters have felt loss, but had they loved fully? Can they give themselves permission to love again? Laura Gayvert plays Lizzy Nash, a brash and slightly neurotic teacher recently widowed in a small Alabama town. Ben Carr plays Jack Key, an even-keeled widower who moves into the house next door after accepting a job teaching at the same high school from which Lizzy is on leave. From the beginning it seems clear

18 • BAY WEEKLY • April 15 - April 22, 2021

that these two are on a path toward each other, but they are their own worst roadblocks. Lizzy and Jack evolve from argument to flirtation to banter— she hates that his Maytag dryer is on his porch, he urges her to loosen up— to deep discussions sparked by their reading of love letters left behind by the deceased previous owners of Jack’s house. Carr gives Jack a bemused stability that nicely counters Gayvert’s reading of Lizzy as sarcastic yet insecure, and director Edd Miller ensures that the humor and tenderness of Cefaly’s script walk hand-in-hand. To achieve safe distancing between the unmasked cast and the masked audience, Director Edd Miller’s set portraying the characters’ two rear porches is placed at one end of the theater rather than Colonial’s usual in-the-round configuration. Lizzy’s porch is full of wind chimes and folk

art and an often-occupied clothesline; Jack’s has the Maytag dryer and a hammock, on which he sleeps because he thinks the previous owner’s ghost is in the bedroom. Occasionally Miller’s placement of the actors allows small parts of the set to come between them and the audience, and there are times when we must strive to hear Gayvert either because her back is to us or she is so far upstage and away from the audience that her voice gets lost. But that doesn’t sap the strength of this production, which is the chemistry Gayvert and Carr share as actors. They have worked together before and it shows. Lighting by John Purnell and sound by Kaelynn Bedsworth are especially effective at the end of Act 1. After a beautifully delivered monologue by Gayvert, Lizzy steps out into a nighttime storm and lifts her face, sacrificing herself to the driving rain. The effect is so real that the audience feels the chill. Maytag Virgin runs through April 25; tickets are $20.21. Run time is 2 hours 15 minutes including one intermission.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD

BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEEL SYNDICATION Government in Action

Most citizens of Brussels, Belgium, have never seen the Palace of Justice, the largest courthouse in the world, without construction scaffolding surrounding it, as renovations on the facade of the iconic building have been mired in red tape and bureaucratic incompetence for most of 40 years, according to The Bulletin. In mid-March, construction crews finally started work, but not on the building; they arrived to shore up the scaffolding, which has grown outdated and dangerous over so much time. Officials assert this will allow outside renovations to finally commence and predict the scaffolding will come down by 2030. Belgians, however, are skeptical.

All in the Family

At a wedding in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province in China on March 31, the groom’s mother noticed a birthmark on the bride’s hand that was similar to one belonging to her long-lost daughter. When asked, the bride’s parents admitted they had found her as a baby by the side of the road and taken her to live with them as their own—a secret they had never told. The Daily Star reported that upon hearing of the connection, the bride burst into tears, saying the moment was “happier than the wedding day itself.” Bonus: The groom was also adopted, so their marriage could proceed as planned.

Job of a Researcher

Scientists studying ticks at A.T. Still University in Kirksville, Missouri, have enlisted the help of the Missouri Department of Conservation in asking the public to refrain from killing any ticks they pick off themselves and mail them to the university instead. Conservation department spokesman Francis Skalicky told KY3-TV that, while 14 species of ticks live in Missouri, “we’re trying to find out ... the prevalence of species and more information on the diseases they are carrying.” He asks people to put ticks in a zip-close bag with a damp paper towel before sending them in for study.

Causing a Stink

Police in Phoenix are searching for whoever dumped hundreds of carp and gizzard shad along a road on the north side of the city on April 4, KPHO-TV reported. Arizona Game and Fish said the estimated 1,000 pounds of fish were dumped along with trash left over from a spearfishing tournament at nearby Lake Pleasant. “It’s pretty gross,” said motorist Karen Rowe. “I mean fish in the middle of the desert, so it’s quite shocking.” Authorities said those responsible could be charged with criminal littering.

Sweet Revenge

Concord, North Carolina, police say they have not determined a motive for an April 2 incident in which Lacy Cordell Gentry, 32, allegedly drove his car through the front doors of the Walmart he had recently been fired from, destroying displays but avoiding injuring any shoppers. “If you take a car through a Walmart, there’s going to be a lot of damage,” one officer told local media. The New York Daily News reported that Gentry was taken into custody and faces multiple charges.

Lost and Found

Cybill Moore of Weatherford, Texas, was puzzled by the large basket of men’s dirty laundry left on her front porch, along with a bag of laundry soap and dryer sheets, on March 26. Assuming there’d been a mix-up, she left it on the porch for a day and posted on social media sites to find the owner, with no luck, she told the Weatherford Democrat, so she finally just washed, dried and folded the clothes. That’s when a strange man showed up at the door saying he meant to drop the laundry four houses down, where he pays a woman to clean his clothes. Moore said he was shocked that she had laundered the items for him, and now, “A lot of people have joked about dropping off their clothes for me, since I’m doing ‘community laundry.’”

Disturbing the Peace

Neighbors around a new luxury condo tower in Brooklyn, New York, are up in arms, and up at night, because of the persistent, shrill whistle they say is coming from the building, reported NBC New York. The city has been inundated with complaints. “It almost sounds like the subway screeching, but it’s constant, and it usually happens late at night,” Chris Valentini said of the noise. A representative of the developer told neighbors the sound originates from wind whipping around the new metal balconies. “This is not uncommon in new buildings,” he said, “and we will resolve it.”

Ayanna Williams of Houston achieved a Guinness World Record for the longest fingernails grown by a woman in 2017, when her nails measured 19 feet. In early April, Williams visited a dermatology clinic in Fort Worth to have the nails cut off—her first trim since the 1990s—but not before measuring them again: 24 feet, a length that required a manicure lasting several days, using three to four bottles of nail polish, CNN reported. “With or without my nails, I will still be the queen,” Williams said. The nails were preserved and will be on display at the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum in Orlando, Florida.
