Art in Unexpected Places


s the mother of two rambunctious little boys, I choose our outings carefully. White-tablecloth restaurants are out, as are shops carrying fragile figurines. Needless to say, I’d never invite my 3- and 5-year-old to an art exhibit full of beautiful paintings priced in the thousands of dollars. Yet that is exactly where we found ourselves this past Sunday, quite by accident. We’d gone to Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis in search of a county park the boys hadn’t explored before. They enjoyed the playground, the shaded gazebo, and the plentiful tables for picnicking. But the visitor center piqued their curiosity. Entering the first level,

I remembered the ice-skating facilities from my own younger days. But my sons wanted to see what’s upstairs, where a wraparound porch is set up with inviting tables. Climbing the stairs to the second floor, we found that the space is set up as a two-level art gallery. It currently features the work of Jen Sterling, an Annapolis artist who paints big, bold abstract art in acrylic. The colors were strikingly vibrant, with noticeable layers and texture as we walked closer to each canvas. I gave my “Look, but don’t touch!” warning several times over. Despite my anxiety about keeping the paintings safe from my busy boys, I loved seeing them take in the artwork. “Which are your favorite colors?”

I asked. “ALL of them!” said my 3-yearold, gesturing grandly. “What do you think that one’s meant to be?” I asked, pointing to an unusual shape in red, yellow, black and brown. “A volcano!” announced my 5-year-old without hesitation. We stayed in the exhibit about 15 minutes, and I’m relieved to say no paintings were harmed in that time. Better yet, my boys got an unplanned experience in the fine arts. And that’s precisely what is great about public art—it enriches your life, sometimes when you least expect it. Making plans to visit an art museum or gallery may feel intimidating, expensive, or otherwise hard to fit into our schedule.

hosting. But art, put on display outdoors or in public spaces, is approachable. Throughout Chesapeake Country, public art opportunities are popping up everywhere, especially outdoors. The pandemic left arts organizations looking for safe ways to display work, and openair exhibits offered a solution. This week’s issue of CBM Bay Weekly highlights some outdoor art opportunities just arriving on the scene, or some you may not have known about. From murals to sculptures, gardens to public parks, art is easy to find even if you’re not trying. So put on your walking shoes and go take some in! p —MEG WALBURN VIVIANO, CBM EDITORIAL DIRECTOR

he Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) wants your input on three speed limit zone extensions on the Bay’s western shore tributaries: the south Magothy River, the South River proper, and Mill Creek on Whitehall Bay. DNR is currently accepting public

comment on the changes, which include a proposed extension of the 6-knot demarcation zone around the Spring Cove and Forked Creek area of the Magothy River, near Belvedere Yacht Club and Ulmstead Marina. The move would push the no wake zone roughly 400 feet north and expand it significantly toward the river.

4 • BAY WEEKLY • September 16 - September 23, 2021

DNR’s proposal states that the amount of wake created by powerboats is affecting waterfront property owners, small personal watercraft, and marina residents. But whether the new extension would make a significant difference in the amount of wake is questionable. “Roughly 90 percent of the Magothy’s 71-mile coastline is already bulk-

headed,” says Paul Spadaro, Magothy Riverkeeper and President of the Magothy River Association. “When that much of the shoreline is armored, the river becomes like a billiards table and the amount of wake a boat creates actually increases.” Spadaro is encouraged by the proposal, however, stating that over the last 25 years he’s been involved with the MRA, the amount of self-propelled watercraft on the river has increased significantly, necessitating greater cooperation by boaters. “While the Magothy only has two public access points for kayakers, there are a significant number of community-owned properties and beaches along the river,” he says. Many of these communities prioritize water accessibility for their residents, often operating their own sailing and boating programs. It can be challenging for boaters to recognize these areas if they aren’t on the water regularly. Geoff Gales is the director of the Whitehurst Sailing Club, which instructs children in Optimist sailboats throughout the summer. Gales is also encouraged by the changes in Forked Creek. “The Magothy is pretty small,” he says, “so when a motorboat passes through, no matter where, the paddleboarders, kayakers, and sailboats are impacted by the wake.” To non-powerboaters, the 6-knot line can seem like a finish line, as boats will race right up to it before slowing down, or hit the gas immediately upon leaving the zone. Gales notes that it’s

not simply the powerboats moving into and out of the greater Chesapeake, but also those towing tubers or water skiers. “Water skiers are unpredictable,” he says, “and they love going in and out of creeks. When you have a fleet of children sailing and they come roaring in, you can never predict what they’re going to do.” The Magothy is not the only area under consideration for further speed limit assessments. Within Whitehall Bay, the DNR is considering extending the no-wake zone inside Mill Creek, moving the demarcation line by some 235 yards into the main stem of the waterway. Again, property damage and potential injuries are noted as the reasons for the change. This regulation would only be enforced on weekends and holidays, and not year round. On the South River in the area of the Riva Bridge, the 6-knot speed limit exists only on weekends and holidays during the boating season; a proposed action would create a full-time speed limit. The DNR admits that currently the difference between the area of the Riva Bridge, where the speed limits are enforced parttime, and the Route 2 Bridge, where speed limits are enforced at all times, is confusing for boaters as well as dangerous. The proposed action would reduce property damage and potential injuries as well as create consistency. Public comment is invited through Sept. 27th by emailing A public hearing has not yet been scheduled.

or a few minutes last week, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and the Port of

Baltimore shipping channel came to a standstill. People watching from boats and the shore watched and waited. And then it happened: a barge carrying four enormous cranes passed under the bridge with only four feet of clearance at the bridge’s highest point.

Welcome to Boating!

Now that it’s arrived in Baltimore, work is underway to ready it for the supersized container ships it will service at the port—a game-changer for local industry. Bay Bulletin had one of the best seats See CRANES on page 6

Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge contains critical tidal marshes. Photo: USFWS.



fforts to conserve Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and the Chesapeake Bay’s marsh habitat have hit a milestone: since 2016, a total of 870 acres have been added to the refuge. Those 870 acres will provide space for marshes to migrate as sea levels rise, according to the Nature Conservancy, who secured protection of all those acres for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). Blackwater is wellknown to be especially vulnerable to sea level rise. Already since the mid20th century, roughly 8,000 acres of Blackwater’s wetlands have been lost. But setting aside space for marshes to “migrate” to higher ground helps to preserve critical habitat for migrating birds traveling along their Atlantic Flyway route. Blackwater encompasses nearly one third of all the tidal wetlands in Maryland, and Maryland’s lower Eastern Shore holds more than 75 percent of the state’s remaining tidal wetlands. The Nature Conservancy has been CRANES from page 5

in the house, watching from the water with David Sites (plumber by trade, Bay photographer by love). Sites had been out to visit the cranes while they were docked in the Annapolis Anchorage in the channel, waiting for the right moment to make the final leg of their two-month trip from Shanghai, China. “You don’t understand until you’re next to it,” Sites says. “It just dwarfs you.” Sites and his son-in-law Chuckie Dunn took the day off work to witness history. “To think about that puzzle piece and how it connects our products to the consumer,” says Dunn. “Without those cranes, we can’t get the sea containers unloaded.” From just a few waves back, we saw the cranes clear the two Bay Bridge spans with just four rulers between them and the bridge. It was such a tight squeeze that traffic was stopped while the enormous distraction passed below. The four fully-electric cranes will measure 450 feet tall when fully upright. The cranes then made their way up the Patapsco River, clearing the Francis Scott Key Bridge and arriving at 6 • BAY WEEKLY • September 16 - September 23, 2021

working hard to keep those tidal wetlands intact, conserving nearly half the Nanticoke Division of the wildlife refuge. That section has grown to over 2,000 acres since 2011. “The Nanticoke is a priority area for conservation due to its ability to withstand future sea level rise, and high value for many important species from waterfowl to migratory songbirds. At the same time, the acquisition also provides a natural buffer against flooding and sea-level rise,” explains Chesapeake Marshlands National Wildlife Refuge Complex Manager Marcia Pradines. The marshes are important not just for their value as wildlife habitat, but as protection against shoreline erosion and flooding from storms. The Nature Conservancy is able to help USFWS to acquire these tracts of land through the Land and Water Conservation Fund (funded by offshore oil and gas royalties) and by U.S. Department of the Interior Duck Stamps, purchased for $25 each by conservation-minded hunters and birdwatchers.

their final destination at the port. A fire boat gave a traditional maritime welcome to the ship as it pulled into Seagirt Marine Terminal after traveling about 14,000 miles. “It started in Shanghai and went through the Indian Ocean, headed over the Caribbean, and almost made a b-line to Florida,” said William P. Doye, Executive Director of the Port of Baltimore, greeting the cranes at Seagirt. Once the new cranes are assembled and operational this winter, the port will be able to handle offloading containers from two ultra-large ships simultaneously. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan applauded the milestone. “We’ve had record-breaking years, year after year, and continue to increase production here. This is just one more step that’s going to help us in that direction. It’s been years of efforts of dredging these ports out to 50 feet so we can handle the largest ships in the world.” A moment that made us hold our breath is now etched in our memory banks to mark new beginnings on the Bay. “To realize they went 14,000 nautical miles to get here through the ocean— it’s just unbelievable,” Sites says.


Flowers and Volunteers Make a Difference Plant bulbs now for a beautiful spring BY KATHY KNOTTS


he City of Annapolis hosts its annual fall GreenScape project Saturday, Oct. 23. As always, Annapolis Recre-

ation and Parks invites the community to participate in national Make a Difference Day by volunteering for the city’s annual beautification efforts. GreenScape is a city and community partnership effort of beautification, clean-up, and planting in public spaces throughout the city. It was founded through the efforts of former Mayor Ellen Moyer and the Annapolis Recreation and Parks Advisory Board in 1991. Since then, hundreds of projects have been initiated and adopted by individuals, community groups and neighborhood associations. Groups can place a reservation for orange tulip and yellow daffodil bulbs beginning this week. Volunteers may select up to 100 of each for each project. Bulbs are free but are first-come, first serve. The bulbs will be planted in a public landscape area on Make a Difference Day. To order, e-mail Marisa Wittlinger at and provide your name, contact phone number and organization (if applicable), and indicate where you will be planting and the number of bulbs you’re requesting. Bulb pick-up will be October 18-22 at the Pip Moyer Recreation in Annapolis. When volunteers pick up bulb orders, they must wear a mask.

Watermen’s Festival Celebrates 20th Anniversary BY KATHY KNOTTS


atermen are like the horse wranglers of the Bay. So it comes as no surprise that they like to let loose like cowboys of the old West. This time of year, the watermen of Calvert County are celebrating the end of a busy season and enjoying the fruits of their labors. Sunday marks the 20th annual Calvert County Watermen’s Festival at Watermen’s Wharf in Solomons. There you will find a family friendly affair that draws visitors from across the Bay region. There’s food and drinks, live music by Deanna Dove, the Island Girl. Buoy toss and anchor toss contests for the kids. But the main attraction is a thrill-

ing and exciting affair of churning water, spinning helms and churning motors. The boat docking contests are perhaps the best known part of this festival. Workboats and charter boats compete for cash, prizes, trophies and, naturally, bragging rights. Competitors maneuver around pilings, lassoing lines and docking at full throttle into a slip with remarkable skill. If docking contests are new to you, check out Cheryl Costello’s video report on the Chesapeake Cowboys to get a taste of just how thrilling the competition can be. Spoiler alert: the Cowboys aren’t all boys. video-chesapeake-cowboys-competefor-best-docking-skills/.

Maryland Monarchs Mount Momentous Migration BY MATTHEW LIPTAK


t’s time to say goodbye again to our magnificent monarch butterflies. This beautiful pollinator is about to make its way to Mexico again on an epic 3,000mile journey. Multiple events have been scheduled to celebrate the send off of the beleaguered butterfly. “As a child there was an abundance,” recalled Chesapeake Wildlife Heritage Field Biologist Andi Pupke. “Their magnificence is spectacular. There’s no other migration like it—besides their sheer beauty and grace.” The inspiring insect makes a multi-generational trip to and from a single location in Mexico each year, reaching the border of Canada at its zenith. Monarchs incrementally travel north each year, laying eggs and letting the next generation do the next leg of flying north in the warm season, until the last leg when they bulk up and head back the full 3,000 miles to Mexico. That’s what Maryland monarchs are preparing to do. A number of local organizations believe that epic journey is worthy of celebration. Chesapeake Wildlife Heritage, on Kent Island, is holding its Magnificent Monarchs Workshop on Sept. 25 at 10 am. Those attending will learn firsthand about the butterfly’s migra-



tion from staff and also help them tag monarchs so they can be tracked before their trip south. The popular event has already filled up, but there is a wait list (410-822-5100). But all are welcome to celebrate the monarchs’ big adventure and the migrations of other wildlife in North Beach, Saturday, Sept. 18 (8-11am) at the Farmers Market. There will be a monarch butterfly tagging demonstration, milkweed meadow seedball making, coloring for the kids (and the kids at heart), and monarch-themed giveaways. The event is made possible through a partnership between the North Beach Department of Community Conservation and the North Beach House and Garden Club.

seven or eight years.” Pupke said “critical mass” is the population size where species are considered sustainable by scientists. “Once we get below that it can be pretty scary,” she said. On the bright side, Pupke noted that in the fields she tends, the number of monarch caterpillars was up slightly. And in 2019 the population rebounded somewhat by more than doubling in size, raising the hope that their annual flight will endure for more years to come. Weather can greatly affect their survival rate, as does habitat loss and insecticide use. Winter storms where they winter in Mexico caused major loss of the species in recent years. But there is hope. Participating in programs and talking about the monarch butterfly spreads the word that they are in need of help. And the simple act of planting a few milkweed next spring can attract this lovely pollinator right to your doorstep, so you can take in its beauty yourself in person. “You can do your part right in your own yard,” Garrett noted. “The more people we help preserve a little bit more of the milkweed,” Pupke said. “I’m a little bit concerned we can’t save them in our flyway. You can’t give up the ship. You’ve got to keep trying. It’s an all-hands-ondeck situation.” p bration,” Garrett said. “The idea is to help people know about all the creatures that leave here in the fall. They should come to the migration celebration so they can learn a little bit more.

People are very amazed at a small monarch going all the way to Mexico.” As for the monarch populations, they remain low and the species is in peril. They can use all the human help and

support they can get. “Since 1990 we’ve lost 90 percent of the population and oscillated back and forth,” Pupke said. “We’ve been hovering around critical mass for the last

HEN WE THINK about viewing art, we often default to the idea of walking through an art gallery or museum, gazing quietly and reflectively at the numerous works that hang upon the walls. In Chesapeake Country, we have no shortage of places to go to experience that, although the pandemic has made it a little more challenging to spend quality time indoors with some museums closed or limiting capacities.

Thankfully, the art world works hard to bring that same experience to the public in other locations. And if you look, you will start to see that art can be found everywhere. Public art enriches our physical environments, bringing streets, plazas and buildings to vibrant life. Public art also gives us the opportunity to watch creators in action, from seeing muralists tackle a blank wall to sculptors leading the installation of massive pieces. It helps connect us to our neighbors and makes us proud of where we live. And it’s fun to turn a corner and discover a sculpture or a mural in a surprising location. This week, we look at a few organizations, artists and alliances who are making sure that public art stays accessible and visible by putting it outdoors, in public spaces, with no visiting hours necessary.



he David Hayes Art Foundation, named for the renowned sculptor, has brought a group of abstract steel sculptures to Annapolis and the Annapolis Arts District. In partnership with Annapolis Arts District and The Inner West Street Association, the installation at locations across the city allows for people to experience the joy and creativity of art in a casual and organic way. The collaboration is being spearheaded by Darin Gilliam and Alison Harbaugh of ArtFarm Studios. In an effort to bring art to community members who may not otherwise have the opportunity, ArtFarm is eager to make this a community project that will uplift and inspire. “Our goal is to create both visibility and community around the arts. We are excited to connect local artists to the David Hayes Foundation and the art they provide. In turn, we see positive collabora-

tions and educational opportunities for both artists and students in Annapolis,” says Gilliam, the studio’s co-owner. “As one who represents both visual and sculptural artists, I am excited to see such a prolific and renowned artist’s work in our town. This will bridge the gap between local and global art and artists and bring further excitement to the Annapolis arts scene,” says Katherine Burke, owner of Annapolis Collection Gallery and board member of the Annapolis Arts District. The outdoor art installations are a yearlong offering to the city and can be seen at Maryland Hall, MC3 at ParkPlace, Lemongrass on West Street, Bates Middle School, Stanton Community Center and The Graduate Hotel. Future locations will be unveiled over coming months, along with education and programming around sculptural art and color theory ( david-hayes). Hayes has been involved in over 400 exhibitions and his work is included in over 100 institutional collections—including New York City’s MoMA and the Guggenheim. He has also been awarded the Logan Prize for Sculpture and been David Hayes with his sculpture at Maryland Hall Photo courtesy Annapolis Arts District.

recognized by the National Institute of Arts and Letters. Hayes was introduced to Annapolis through the Mitchell Gallery on the St. John’s campus in 2013. A Hayes sculpture still greets visitors at its entrance, adding a juxtaposition of abstract art to its traditional landscape.



n the St. John’s campus, the Mitchell Gallery is currently closed to visitors. But that doesn’t mean art can’t be found. In addition to the Hayes sculpture, a smaller installation of art awaits students and visitors alike in the Quad. A Season of Shakespeare is a recently-installed outdoor exhibit of bronze sculptures influenced by the works of the Bard, created by artist Greg Wyatt. The figures, called maquettes, are midsized models placed around the quad at St. John’s and some will be recreated as full-sized sculptures when Wyatt’s full exhibit comes to the gallery next year. The 600-pound statuettes are held in place by two-foot anchors in the ground. “We invited Greg to have a full exhibition here,” says gallery executive director Lucinda Edinberg. “We had planned to have it last spring with full-size sculptures, the maquettes, watercolors and what-not. That had to be postponed due to the pandemic.” So Edinberg decided that having some elements on display outdoors was an acceptable compromise. “We can still have art on campus and this way we don’t have to worry about COVID or colds or the flu or whatever comes our way. People can walk around them and enjoy them.” The eight bronze maquettes will be on display until Oct. 15 and each is a realistic image inspired by a Shakespeare work, such as Falstaff or Macbeth. Other works by Wyatt can be seen in the gardens of the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washing-

ton, D.C., and Arlington Cemetery, as well as installations around the world. Maquettes are scale models used by artists to help visualize and test ideas without the effort and expense of a full-sized model. “So like a muralist would start with a scaled drawing, or even a billboard ad, when you are working on such a monumental scale, you make several smaller sized pieces and work you way up to the finished product,” explains Edinberg. “For sculpture, it’s important because it determines what you are going to see at a larger size, you have to think about the visual perception and perspectives those larger pieces will create.” Edinberg says the public reaction to the pieces has varied. “Our students look at them with a lot of curiosity, most of them have read Shakespeare and enjoy the characters, while others want the Quad left completely blank. But Photo by Jack Turner. it’s a nice diversion from the usual. It creates change and elicits comments. Being able to see artwork when institutions have been closed nourishes the soul. And that is our intention. We are closed but not gone.” “I fully expect to see them dressed for Halloween,” Edinberg adds.

The mural honors more than 60 Annapolis men and women for “taking us in the right direction.” The mural was created and painted by Jeff Huntington and collaborators at Future History Now (FHN), a nonprofit organization that creates murals with youth in underserved communities. The project was painted over the summer to honor the many African American taxi drivers throughout Annapolis’ history. Since its inception in 2016, FHN has created 39 murals in Anne Arundel County. “A primary concern of FHN is sharing authentic street art experiences as a means of teaching contemporary mural production,” says FHN founder and artist Jeff Huntington. “FHN projects promote skill sharing and problem solving, employ mathematical processes, and often address civic, social, and historical content.” Alderwoman Rhonda Pindell Charles, who advocated for the mural project,

says, “The design is striking, and reminds us of the commitment of our taxi drivers and transit service operators to serve this community.” Mayor Gavin Buckley, a longtime champion of public art, added, “you have got to see this mural in person. It ‘drives’ home the importance of all manner of transportation options that make a city like Annapolis function.” Elevate Your Game, a colorful new mural, was also unveiled this summer on the basketball court at Studio 39 behind Maryland Hall by FHN and the Performing & Visual Arts (PVA) Program of Anne

Arundel County schools. Maryland Hall’s ArtReach team, led by Laura Brino, has also recently completed a mural called One Annapolis located on the track behind Bates Middle School. This collaborative project also included FHN, the PVA program, and artist-activists Comacell Brown and Deonte Ward. Huntington says more projects are in the works. “We are currently working on/ preparing for mural projects for Chesapeake Art Center in Brooklyn Park, phase 2 of a basketball court mural in collaboration with Bike AAA at Lindale Middle School, and one for the Interna-

n Calvert County, art lovers can find plenty of outdoor wonder at Annmarie Garden. A sculpture greets you as you pull up to the art center. It’s the “Tribute to the Oyster Tonger, a Chesapeake Waterman” by Antonio Tobias Mendez. This memorial to the oyster tongers was created with the intention to celebrate a people of pride, character and integrity and to create a feeling for their space and to symbolize the elements of their existence. The sculpture is meant to invoke a sense of timelessness and enduring quality. Beyond, in the 30-acre sculpture garden you’ll find all the outdoor art you could hope to see, nestled in the woods down a shady path. p

Colonial Players’ The Revolutionists

A Play Within a Play, a Revolution Within a Revolution


olonial Players has opened its 73rd season with Lauren Gunderson’s The Revolutionists, an imagined coming together of four women in the late 18th century who flex their feminist muscles as they fight for individual and common causes during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. While Gunderson’s script skips along the surface of the important issues of the time, its contemporary language and attitude remind us that some of those issues, most notably the fight for equality, remain today. The play is now the subject of a dynamic, funny and often moving production that opened last week at Colonial Players. A quartet of talented actors brings the revolutionary women to life. Mary C. Rogers is Olympe De Gouges, the author of the Declaration of the Rights of Women and of the Female Citizen; in

the play, she is desperately trying to write a play but has writer’s block (“No one wants a musical about the French revolution”). Carey Bibb is Charlotte Corday, the boisterous murderer of journalist and politician Jean-Paul Marat, who wants a juicy line she can use at her beheading. Ryan Gunning Harris is Marie Antoinette, the last French queen, whose hilarious vapidity transitions to sisterly caring. Samantha McEwen Deininger is Marianne Angelle, a composite character who represents free Black women in SaintDomingue (now Haiti) fighting French rule; she wants De Gouges to write a pamphlet supporting her cause. In a play like this chemistry is critical, and under the direction of Jennifer Cooper, these four work together nicely even as they maintain clearly defined individual characters. Rogers

is excellent as de Gouges, balancing the author’s struggle to encapsulate the Revolution at the same time as she seeks to propel égalité. Equally effective is Bibb’s Corday, loud and animated and determined to commit justice. Marie Antoinette could easily have become a comedic caricature, but Harris gives her character a perceptible depth from which the asides spring. Deininger makes the audience feel Angelle’s passion for her cause, and her personal tie to it. While Cooper and her actors keep a lively pace, the first act seems to drag to its end, just as the second act takes a few minutes to kick into gear; both are products not of the performances but of Gunderson’s script. Cooper keeps most of the action at the center of Colonial’s rectangular stage, a necessity so the audience on all four sides can see. So it’s unfortunate that the play’s most impactful and clever special effects are projected onto a single screen set in a corner;

typically this forces parts of the audience to crane their neck to look in that direction, if they aren’t blocked by other audience members; perhaps with sparser audiences due to COVID this won’t be a problem. Costumes, hair, wigs and makeup nicely place the characters in the time period yet give them a unique, almost punk look, and while “less is more” is often the truism for lighting and sound, a full complement of effects featuring each is especially effective here. But the real reason to see this production is the marvelous cast. All four are fully invested in their characters, thus bringing to life the anger, fear, and determination that can lead true believers to the ultimate sacrifice. Runs through October 2; two hours and 20 minutes with one intermission; costumes by Amy Atha-Nicholls; lights by Shannon Benil, Ginny White; sound by David Cooper; set by Richard Atha-Nicholls; hair, wigs and makeup by Leigh Rawls. Tickets are $23 and $18; masks must be worn. Live streaming is available, though Colonial has taken many precautions for the live audience, including the installation of enhanced air filtration systems. p For information visit

The rockfish bite is the best of the year since many factors have kept lots of anglers off the water this season. The result is that our rockfish and white perch have avoided the intense pressure and associated mortality of a normal year of recreational angling. Estimates vary but generally the figures say that sport fishing harvests are down 50 percent. Commercial fisheries have been permitted to take their full allocation (over 50 percent) but on the whole the rockfish population has benefited and the fall season looks to be excellent. Live lining is particularly hot right now and as long as the norfolk spot stay around to provide us with the best bait, the chances of some good catches are as good as they’ve been all year. The next best technique is chumming with ground menhaden and using cut, fresh menhaden (a.k.a. bunker, alewife) as bait on the bottom. Circle hooks remain mandatory and remember the limit remains at one rockfish, 19 inches or more. Trolling and jigging metal and soft plastics are also productive tactics and getting good results. White perch are schooling well, some still in the tribs along structured shorelines but others schooling in deeper water for wintertime. They’ll take small spinnerbaits in the shallows and worms, shrimp, clams and crab in depths to 25 feet and deeper. crabbing remains mostly moribund but if enough survive a mild winter, things may be better in 2022. Good fishing all. Winter is coming.

An Autumn Angling Advisory T he essential phase of any fishing adventure always occurs before you even leave the house: Proper preparation prevents poor performance, as the U.S. Marines are fond of saying. The most critical element of your day, however, is safety. The first phase of the proper preparation checklist assumes that access to the internet. Reliable, timely and accurate information is paramount when preparing a plan for the day’s approach and the internet is the best source for accurate weather and tidal data. Most marine info is real-time readings from buoys and on-site weather gear. Refer to weather data before your trip and always review again before you leave. Your first search will be for the day’s general weather in your location. The



temperatures overnight and the forecast for the day are the first conditions to evaluate. If the overnights are in the 65to 75-degree range you are in luck, that is the preferable range for September. Well over that range or well under tend to present a problem. Anything near 60 degrees or less overnight is going to be uncomfortable early in the morning. The day will quickly become warm in September but you will have to don heavier clothing to begin, especially on open water. Don’t think about toughing it out if you’ve under-dressed. It doesn’t take long for your inner core temperature to drop and hypothermia to set in. And remember, one of the very first symptoms, aside from rapid shivering, is poor mental acuity. You are more likely to make poor decisions. T HURS DAY



Over 90 degrees may be unusual this time of year but it’s not exceptional. Heatstroke remains every bit as deadly as its opposite. The very young and old are the most vulnerable to both. Cold drinks, shade, proper clothing and caution are the keys for dealing with high heat. Next on your list is wind speeds causing rough and possibly dangerous water—I avoid anything over 12 knots. I have a small boat but even in larger crafts wave conditions can quickly become uncomfortable over 15 knots, depending on direction. Reach is a wave condition caused by the interaction of the wind over distances of open water. Bay waters are most drastically affected by winds over the length of the Bay from the northwest and southeast. Long reaches will produce the biggest and steepest waters out in the open Bay and in areas of concentrated high tidal currents (rips) opposing the wind direction. On windy days you can avoid the worst of it by fishing the lee shores and up into the tributaries but keep in mind you may have to travel S U ND AY



through some rough water to get there. Tidal phases can be important to all types of fishing so keep in mind the transition phase from incoming to outgoing and its opposite during which there will be mixed or no tidal current. As a rough rule you’re going to encounter these dead or slack waters about an hour and a half after the scheduled full flood and ebb tides and the bite invariably dies at those times. There’s no way of avoiding the transition periods without traveling long distances. Just be aware they’re going to happen and adjust your expectations. The weather and tidal data for the Bay is detailed and accurate under normal conditions but also know that if it’s been blowing stiffly out of the north or south for a few days the incoming and outgoing can be off by as much as hours. The best remedy for periods immediately following windy weather is to talk to someone who’s been out there and be ready to adjust your day. It’s fall, the fishing is great but be careful out there. p

Four Fast Feet


recently took a couple of days off for a trip to the beaches of Fenwick Island. Of course, I got up early to walk on the beach and watch the sunrise. While walking on the beach, I had to be very careful not to crunch a crab. Early in the morning, there were ghost crabs running around everywhere. As the sun came up, I saw how many crab holes there were.

Fenwick Island is the quiet part of the southern Delaware coast. As I later visited Ocean City, it was much more crowded with people and there were fewer crab holes. The Atlantic ghost crab (Ocypode quadrata) is common along the Atlantic Coast from Rhode Island to Brazil. They are a land crab that spends only its larval development in seawater, however, they still have gills and

require moisture as an interface for gas exchange. On sunny dry days, they stay in a burrow. Overnight and on clouded damp days they will be out. They are hunter/scavengers that will go after a fly or a newly hatched turtle. They also look for food in the high tide debris. As everyone that has tried to catch one knows, they run really fast and change direction on a dime. This helps

them escape from the many animals that want to eat them. The crabs live about three years and spend cold winters in their burrows. After the water and sand warms, the crabs spend time scurrying around looking for a mate. The male attracts the females with some pincer clicking and posturing. After fertilization, the eggs develop on the underside of the female and must be kept moist and clean. She will let waves wash over her to accomplish both cleaning and wetting. When the eggs are developed near the point of hatching, she will go into the surf and do a bouncing dance as the eggs are released. The eggs and subsequent hatchlings stay in the upper columns of water and go through three developing stages while feeding on plankton. At the last stage, they start to look like crabs and sink to the bottom. The ones that survive, crawl to a sandy shore to begin their new life on land. Living on the beach is not too easy for them. Night herons, raccoons, foxes, and other animals want to eat them. Humans crush them with their beach trucks and, of course, step on them. The denser the population of beach-goers, the fewer crabs. When you go to beach try to avoid stepping on the crabs or their holes. They will try to pinch if you pick one up but otherwise they will keep their distance on their four fast feet. p



We Can Fight Climate Change


limate change is one of the biggest challenges we are facing as a species. Human activity over the past 200 years has meant that we’re standing on the brink of an environmental disaster- The latest weather occurrences should be eye opening. Hurricanes with exceptional wind speeds, tornadoes in our backyard, western fires blazing for months, pandemics and floods. We can’t wait for the wheels of government to take action. If we all start making some changes, we can start to make a difference. We should minimize our carbon footprint. Our carbon footprint is a measure of the total amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere, usually measured in tonnes of carbon dioxide. These gases block heat from escaping the atmosphere; they include carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and methane. Greenhouse gas emissions are causing the earth to warm up at an unnatural rate. Global warming is a rapid increase of the average surface temperature on earth caused

by the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas) are natural resources that produce carbon dioxide. Global data from 2017, from Our World In Data, gives us the following figures. It tells us that the United States produces 5.27 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide annually. China produces 9.84 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide annually. What are the biggest sources of carbon footprints? Producing energy by the burning of fossil fuels produced 36,013.52 million tonnes of carbon dioxide. Agriculture produced 5795.51 million tonnes of carbon dioxide. Land use change and forestry via altering or converting land produced 3217.07 million tonnes of carbon dioxide. Industrial processes produced 2771.08 million tonnes of carbon dioxide. Waste produced 1560.85 million tonnes of carbon dioxide. Our actions and lifestyle choices have some impact on the environment. Small changes can all add up.

First try to reduce the amount of energy you use and reduce your waste. Turn lights off when not in use. Besides electric cars, there are many electric alternatives for garden work. DR Power Equipment (1-800376-9637) offers many battery powered tools: electric mowers, pole saws, weed whackers, hedge trimmers, blowers and chain saws. Reduce your waste by composting kitchen scraps, newspaper, cardboard, leaves, grass clippings and anything that is organic. All of this can be composted in a discreet part of your yard to replenish your soil. You should continually feed your soil. The pictured Compost Tumbler (1-800-880-2345) keeps composting easy and neat. It makes compost very quickly. If allowed, use a small clothesline to dry your laundry instead of a clothes dryer. Try riding a bicycle for transportation when possible. Shop locally especially at farmers markets and local farms. Try to reduce how often you buy new products. Eat fewer animal products.

Gerard Butler in Copshop.


One cop stands between the mob and a snitch in this siege movie IN THEATERS


eddy Murretto (Frank Grillo: Boss Level) isn’t going to live long if he stays in the open. On the run from mob hitmen, shot, and trying to save his ex-wife and son, Teddy makes the only move he can—he punches a cop in the face. The cop, Valerie (Alexis Louder: The Tomorrow War), is more than happy to lock up the dude who sucker punched her. But just Teddy’s luck, he punched the one cop in Nevada who isn’t on the take or completely incompetent. Now he’s got Valerie breathing down his neck, trying to find out why Teddy sent himself to jail. But eager rookie cops aren’t Teddy’s only problem. Bob Viddick (Gerard Butler: Greenland), a mob hitman has gotten himself thrown in jail so he can take out Teddy and collect his money. Should Teddy trust Valerie to help

him? Or should he take his chances with the hitman? Director/co-writer Joe Carnahan (Boss Level) makes a very specific type of action flick. He likes slick shots with swooping camera moves, a convoluted plot, and snappy dialogue that’s just a hair too clever for whatever’s going on. Carnahan movies would have starred Schwarzenegger or Stallone if they were made 20 years ago. It’s not high art, but it’s highly entertaining if you’re a fan of the genre. This time, Carnahan is experimenting with ‘70s B-movies as part of his aesthetic. Copshop is essentially Assault on Precinct 13 with all the gritty John Carpenter flair removed. And that, unfortunately, is a bit of a problem. Carnahan is too clean of a filmmaker to sell the grimy low budget feel he’s going for. The director likes to keep his action bombastic and light, with plenty of comedic style. That approach doesn’t mesh well with the nihilistic grunge most ‘70s movies shared. As a result, Copshop feels like a kid toddling in its mother’s shoes— cute, but undeniably a poor fit. Carnahan’s style is more suited to ‘80s-era action that thrived on excess. He can never seem to pull back in Copshop, glutting himself with flashy

shootouts, quirky characters, and monologues. But in spite of a too-slick exterior, there’s a lot of fun to be had in Copshop. Butler especially is having a great time as a wily and mildly unhinged hitman who is willing to do whatever it takes to collect his bounty. Whether he’s verbally sparring or literally beating the snot out of people, Butler’s Bob is a study in workplace efficiency. He has great chemistry with Louder, whose no-nonsense cop is the only thing standing between him and a quick kill. She’s as resolute as him, and they both develop a grudging respect for each other as a result. As the only lead that isn’t overtly a scumbag, Louder is a fantastically watchable presence. She’s a great, grounded counterpoint to Butler and Grillo’s more ostentatious performances. Louder also has a natural tough shell, that makes her believable as someone who won’t panic, even under tremendous pressure. If you’re in the market for a goofyfun action yarn with lots of showy set pieces, you could do worse than Copshop. But the movie lends itself to a watch-at-home experience; it feels like something you’d watch with your dad on basic cable on a lazy Sunday. Butler and Louder keep the wheels on as the film barrels through action sequences, but ultimately Copshop runs out of gas a little too quickly. Fair Action * R * 118 mins.




Cows summering in the mountains of Switzerland have to find their way to lower elevations as winter comes on, but among one herd, about 10 cows were injured and couldn’t hoof it down safely. So in late August, farmers arranged for them to be harnessed and flown by helicopter to terrain more accessible to conventional transportation, Sky News reported. The cows were held in a mesh harness, and farmers grabbed ropes to guide them down. Farmer Jonas Arnold noted, “I didn’t ask a cow how it feels after such a flight, as it couldn’t answer, but ... it was only a short, calm flight.” The cows are scheduled to participate in the annual cow parade at Urnerboden, Switzerland.

Bright Idea

Yves de Mbella, a television personality on NCI in Ivory Coast, was convicted on Sept. 1 of glorifying rape after he invited a convicted rapist on his primetime show to demonstrate how he plied his crimes, using a mannequin as his victim. CNN reported that the segment, during which de Mbella helped the rapist adjust the mannequin and asked if his victims “enjoyed it,” aired on Aug. 30. De Mbella, who was fined about $3,600, apologized for the demonstration, saying he was trying to “raise awareness.”

Compelling Explanation

Jonathan George, 31, of Norwalk, Ohio, told police on Aug. 30 that his dog, Lula, shot herself while bringing him his gun, Fox8-TV reported. “Said his dog shot itself and he trained the dog to bring a gun to him,” said police Capt. Jim Fulton. “The dog had the gun in its mouth when it went off accidentally.” But officers didn’t believe that story; Fulton said George’s blood alcohol content was 1.7, about twice the legal limit for driving, and that he “shouldn’t be drinking and handling firearms, bottom line.” George later admitted that he’d been trying to unload the gun when he shot the dog in the jaw. Lula is recovering from her injuries but lost an eye in the shooting; George was charged with cruelty to animals and two other misdemeanors.

The Way the World Works

In one neighborhood in south St. Louis, the century-old brick stormwater sewer system works in a most alarming way: When heavy rain falls, the street “explodes,” with water charging up through any cracks and manholes it can find. Fox2-TV reported that on Aug. 30, resident Sacha Heath recorded video of the phenomenon and posted it to Twitter. “You hear the manholes kind of trembling and you hear the water exploding and it sounds like steam, and then chunks of asphalt are flying in the air,” Heath said. “Obviously, you don’t want asphalt chunks flying into the bottom of your car.” But the Metropolitan Sewer District doesn’t find it unusual: Sean Hadley of the MSD deadpanned that “the water’s gotta go somewhere. That’s what the system is designed to do—for it to pop the manhole covers so that the water can come out and it’s not popping in people’s basements. That’s what you don’t want to happen.”


• Kimberly Dawn Maxwell, 41, of

Ashland, Kentucky, is treading water at the Western Regional Jail in Barboursville, West Virginia, after a puzzling incident on Aug. 27, WCHS-TV reported. As a dad and his two kids enjoyed a picnic at Harris Riverfront Park in Huntington, West Virginia, Maxwell, who was a stranger to them, came to sit at their picnic table. The dad reported that she was mumbling to herself, and he believed she might be under the influence, so he packed up lunch and directed the kids away from her. But as they walked, Maxwell ran up behind the 5-year-old boy and threw him in the Ohio River. A bystander who witnessed the incident jumped in and saved the boy before Maxwell also jumped into the river. When police arrived, she told them, “This is international waters. Police cannot do anything to me.” When the deputy asked her to come talk to him, she responded, “That is not going to happen.” A rescue boat finally plucked Maxwell from the water and she was evaluated at a hospital before being moved to the jail.

News You Can Use

• Mortician Caitlin Doughty, who stars in a YouTube show called “Ask the Mortician,” has answered all kinds of pressing questions about what happens when bodies are cremated, the Mirror reported. For example, titanium hip joints don’t melt along with tissue, clothes and hair, so, Doughty explained, “The metal has to be removed by hand or by a large magnet, and it’s not handled as biological waste because it was never really part of the body to begin with.” She said hip and knee replacements can now be recycled into road signs and car parts. Pacemakers, on the other hand, must be removed before cremation, as the batteries and intense heat could cause an explosion. And breast implants? Doughty says they just melt, but can leave a “gelatinous goo” stuck to the bottom of the cremation chamber. • Monsignor Stephen Rossetti of Washington, D.C., is an exorcist and licensed psychologist and counselor who is warning Catholics that demons have figured out how to send threatening text messages to their targets. The Daily Star reported that Rossetti claims to have “three cases in which demons have texted the team and/or the family of the possessed person. All were high-value targets with high-ranking, powerful demons involved.” For example, one text read, “Her torments start now, priest ... all night. We will make her bleed.” Rossetti points to a long history of demons influencing technology, such as flickering lights and TVs.


United Press International reported on Sept. 2 that a pair of Michael Jordan’s underwear, sporting signs of “definite use,” will be up for auction on the website Lelands until Sept. 25. The item description notes “some loose threads evident at the seams.” The basketball star apparently gave the U-trou to John Michael Wozniak, his former security guard, along with other items of clothing.

Contrary to popular belief, a cop out does not describe a run for doughnuts, and really has little to do with the police at all – well, sort of. Cop out is defined as a ‘cowardly evasion’ and comes from ‘cop a plea,’ meaning to get out of harsher sentences brought on by being copped (seized, captured) by a cop, which is the short form of copper (one who seizes and captures). It may be that copper came from the color of the badge, helmet, or buttons worn by early policemen, but that’s considered a cop out by etymologists.
