A Front Row Seat to the Boat Shows

W

elcome to October! It’s that crisp time of year when autumn really hits its stride, and we get to breathe in the sights, sounds and smells that are unequivocally tied to the change of seasons. For some people, it’s the smell of wet grass at a high school football game under the lights. For others, it’s the first falling leaves and the “thunk” of acorns raining down from treetops. And for most boaters in Chesapeake Country, October has long been associated with the Annapolis Boat Shows. Going back more than 50 years, these boat shows take over City Dock and downtown Annapolis, bringing the excitement of hundreds of shiny new boats and an amazing labyrinth of float-

ing docks that makes Ego Alley almost unrecognizable. The U.S. Powerboat Show and Sailboat Show are billed as the nation’s largest in-water boat shows, and with the boats come booth upon booth of boating gear, apparel, tech tools, and boating lifestyle brands. Though I grew up as a through-andthrough boater just 15 minutes outside Annapolis, I didn’t attend my first show until I was an adult, helping to man the booth for our parent company, Chesapeake Bay Media (CBM). My parents weren’t big on crowds or parking downtown. Even on weekend boat trips, they’d always choose a quiet anchorage over a happening harbor. I’m an extrovert who loves to be where the action is, and I’ve quickly learned

that the boat shows (first up this weekend, the Powerboat Show!) are right in the middle of the action. CBM has been at the boat shows for decades and has produced the show programs since 1998. This year is the first that shows have been held since CBM brought Bay Weekly into the fold, and I couldn’t be more thrilled that we’ll be sharing a booth. Stop by our outdoor “crab-shack” style tent (#59A on Dock J2) to meet our team, pick up extra copies of CBM Bay Weekly, thumb through Chesapeake Bay Magazine, and take advantage of our charging stations and comfy Adirondack chairs. In this issue (page 8) you’ll find an insider’s guide to getting the best out of your boat show experience, along with

YOUR SAY My wife drove a school bus for 11 years. Your article presses on the lack of drivers that have been snapped up by companies like Amazon—have you ever interviewed some school bus drivers and asks what it really entails? Some interesting facts, the cap pay for a school bus driver is $16/ hour, does not matter how many years you work for them, a fresh new driver will make the same as a seasoned one. Drivers are part-time employees, for the holidays you get to file for unemployment, you do not get paid for the summer. Drivers get up between 4:30-5:30 am, do the morning runs, then have a few hours layover, then drive the afternoon runs and get home around 5:30pm if lucky—this is considered a

Offering the companies anything will not affect their interest in paying a proper wage, the government decided to subcontract most of their school bus program years ago to save money on employing drivers properly. —NAME WITHHELD BY REQUEST

And if boating isn’t your thing, never fear: this issue of Bay Weekly is also chockful of the community content you know and love.

question many parents are asking—if this problem was known in advance (and how could it not be) why wasn’t the school system more proactive in engaging and communicating with parents about the issue and possible solutions? My mom always said the schools were her partner is raising her kids. Unfortunately, throughout the pandemic, AACPS seems to keep treating parents like adversaries or children. All parents want the schools to succeed. We need them to succeed and will help them do so! Until the schools start including parents in the issues they are facing they will continue to add anxiety and anger to what is already a tough situation. That is not a good example to our kids or a good partnership.

BAY GOVERNORS SIGN CLIMATE CHANGE DIRECTIVE BY MEG WALBURN VIVIANO

T

he governors of the Chesapeake Bay watershed states and D.C. have signed a directive that promises they’ll double down on efforts to protect our region from climate change effects. The Chesapeake Executive Council, which consists of leaders from Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New York, and D.C., along with the Chesapeake Bay Commission, met at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Brock Environmental Center in Virginia Beach on Friday. In signing the new directive, the states commit to collective action for climate change, acknowledging the serious threat it poses and the urgent action that is needed, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam explained. And it allows Bay leaders to have access to the best science possible, by working together, the Executive Council said. Northam, who is the current chair of

the Executive Council, said the climate change efforts are not only “for our generation but for future generations … At some point, we’re going to hand the baton off,” he said, arguing that awareness of the threat among young people is important. The Executive Council took an on-water environmental education tour aboard a Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) vessel ahead of signing the new directive. As examples of the climate-based action the Council will take, Northam cited “cost-effective, nature-based solutions” like planting trees, oyster reefs, and living shorelines. He also noted that many effects of climate change disproportionately affect low-income and minority communities, promising to build equity into the plan. In the Directive No. 21-1 Collective Action for Climate Change, the Chesapeake Bay Program commits to prior-

itizing marginalized communities for resources, including a focus on wetlands, tree canopy and environmental literacy. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan pointed out another, less obvious nature-based solution: freshwater mussels. Hogan said mussels could help offset pollution from the Susquehanna River and the Conowingo Dam—but also acknowledged that more federal support is needed to save the Susquehanna, the Bay’s largest tributary and greatest source of upstream pollution, both from land development and from agriculture. With the Chesapeake Bay Program’s 2025 goal of a restored Chesapeake Bay now just four years away, 80 percent of the nutrient and pollution reductions need to come from agriculture, according to the Chesapeake Bay Commission. Virginia Delegate David Bulova, chair of the commission, announced the Chesapeake Resilient Farms Initiative from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). As Bulova explained, “USDA partners have rallied around the idea that we need to make sure farmers have the resources they need to be able to implement practices on the ground that will make the most difference and stand the test of time with climate change.” The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) pledged that it is working with federal partners to demonstrate its strong commitment to restoring the watershed. Diana Esher, EPA’s Acting Regional Administrator, noted that “urgent attention is needed,” saying, “The health of the Bay and the 18 million people who live in this watershed go hand in hand.” Despite the promises of the Chesapeake Executive Council, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) criticized the Council for “falling short” and not going after Pennsylvania for failing to meet its commitments. In a statement, CBF President Will Baker said, “EPA failed to hold the Commonwealth [of Pennsylvania] accountable, even as CBF, its partners, and the Attorneys General of Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Virginia are suing EPA in federal court to do just that.” “While Virginia has set a pollution-reduction goal that includes mitigating the damage from climate change, Maryland and Pennsylvania have not,” he noted.

POPLAR ISLAND TERN TRACKED ALL THE WAY TO ARUBA BY JOHN PAGE WILLIAMS

A

new tagging system aims to track young Chesapeake waterbirds that spend winter way down south. And thanks to an observant bird-watcher in Aruba, we can see that it’s working. From terns to ospreys, chicks born in the summer on the Bay face the daunting challenge of migrating a thousand miles and more to Central and South America only a month after they have first learned to fly and catch fish. It’s always a risky journey for these inexperienced young seabirds, and mortality is substantial, but clear observations are scarce. The digital age offers advanced radio telemetry (tagging) systems in minuscule packages that even a bird as small as a common tern can carry without hampering its activities, including fishing, breeding, rearing young, and migrating. The challenge is how to tag a chick that is still growing without hindering its capacity to continue its development. Biologists in the U.S. Geological Survey’s Eastern Ecological Science Center (USGS EESC) at the Patuxent Research Refuge combined digital wizardry with engineering to develop two kinds of flexible harness that would allow a tern chick to carry the transmitter (along with two leg tags standardized to the system of the U.S Fish & Wildlife Service). Working with surrogate chicks of similar size, feathers, and weight (Japanese quail), they found that legloop harnesses constructed from elastic cord and backpack harnesses from TefSee TERN on page 4

PUMPKIN SPICE CRABCAKES: WOULD YOU TRY ONE? BY CHERYL COSTELLO & MEG WALBURN VIVIANO

Y

ou’ve seen the tofu crabcake Bay Bulletin reported on last week. Now here’s another one designed to push the envelope. One of the Chesapeake region’s top crabcake sellers has just added pumpkin spice crabcakes to its menu. Jimmy’s Famous Seafood in southeast Baltimore, which also ships steamed crabs, crabcakes, and other seafood nationwide, is offering a crabcake made with pureed pumpkin and fall spices and served with a sage tartar sauce. If this piques your interest, you can order it online for $41.

Tony Minadakis, chef & co-owner of Jimmy’s, says he’s been sitting on the idea for awhile, and his team went through 10 different variations before coming up with the pumpkin spice recipe. “It’s what you think it would taste like, but it actually holds a pretty savory note to where the sweetness doesn’t overpower the crabcake itself. You still get the Old Bay, you still get the mustard, you still get a lot of crab in there that’s not overly powered with anything sweet.” But Minadakis knows full well there will likely be mixed reaction to this menu item. To this who say you can’t put pumpkin with crabmeat, he says, “It’s like when you go to Starbucks: if you’re not a fan of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, you just get a regular coffee and go about your business.” Pumpkin or plain, crabcakes come at a cost this year. Minadakis says the restaurant is paying 2.5 times what they were paying last year. A 6-ounce crabcake goes for $30, an 8-ouncer goes for $40. But Jimmy’s has no plans to cut back on the number of crab dishes they offer. In a notice at the top of their website, the restaurant writes, “Our menu prices have recently increased due to the international crabmeat shortage which has decimated our industry. As a family-owned business, we take great pride in our transparency and quality. We refuse to cut corners, and it is our full intention & belief that this inconvenience will be temporary. We thank you for your patience, loyalty, and understanding.” The pumpkin spice crabcake is available now on Jimmy’s Famous Seafood’s seasonal menu.

lon-like ribbon are suitable for attaching to growing juveniles. Collaborating with biologists from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and the USFWS, they banded 18 adult common terns and 24 chicks at the restoration site on Poplar Island in June. One adult originally given leg bands on Poplar Island in 2017 and fitted this year with a flexible harness transmitter traveled over 1,850 miles to Aruba, where a local naturalist saw and photographed it. The EESC report suggests, “This tern will either remain until next spring or rest before continuing migration to wintering grounds as far south as Peru.” The report from the community scientist in Aruba is especially helpful because the radio-transmitter tags used in this project rely on receivers to gather detections, and no such receivers are located in the area where the bird was seen. “Information gained from tracking the movements of these and other common terns will improve understanding of how individuals breeding on Poplar Island use habitat at local and global scales. Ultimately, the data gathered through this project will help inform 4 • BAY WEEKLY • October 7 - October 14, 2021

Little Bosses Take Over Annapolis Town Center BY KIMBERLY KWEDER

hile many children try selling roadside lemonade for fast cash, 9-year-old Zoe Toro of Edgewater dreamed bigger. She created her her own business as a way to give back to the community after she experienced a life-changing health crisis. “The Zoe Project” was the highest-nominated business selected for the premier showcase of the Little Bosses festival held Oct. 3 at the Annapolis Town Center. Fourteen pint-sized entrepreneurs showcased products and services to customers in a pop-up shop at the shopping center in Parole, featuring kid-made soaps, buttons, clothing, popcorn, jewelry, lawn mowers, and (yes), lemonade. Zoe was diagnosed in January 2018 with a rare pediatric autoimmune disorder called PANDAS. She recovered in April of that year, but the expenses incurred by her family were immense. Her mom, Stephanie, said that each specialist and treatment cost $25,000— insurance wouldn’t cover everything—so that’s where the community stepped in to raise money. “This is a way to give back. It’s a project with a purpose,” Stephanie said. Zoe was inspired by the colors of the panda and began creating beaded bracelets to help raise awareness of the disorder. Twenty percent of the proceeds of each purchase goes to a family in need or a foundation. Zoe said she enjoys making the bracelets and picking the family or foundation each month. Recently, they helped families of fallen Iraqi soldiers and Wild Kid Acres, a farm in Edgewater. Other little entrepreneurs were driven by education and their love for sports and music.

Tristan said his goal is to build up a college savings fund from the sales. When Christian Crowner, also 9, of Severn, isn’t jamming to Erykah Badu’s “The Love of My Life” and watching football, he is creating batches of his Vegan Cheddar popcorn. “I’ll be making popcorn and getting touchdowns at the same time,” Crowner said. Crowner said he was inspired by eating popcorn with his Grandpa “D” every night as a snack. He began his popcorn business in 2019 and to date, he’s earned over a few thousand dollars, registered as a LLC, and been highlighted by vegan influencer Tabitha Brown, said his mom, Jasmine. The Little Bosses event was supported by Trademark Properties and the Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation. Anthony Henry, general manager of Annapolis Town Center, said the idea of a children’s pop-up concept came to him when he realized there had been 50 popups over the last three years at the Town Center but not one specifically for youth. “This is the most unprecedented time [the pandemic], and meanwhile, the kids are thriving in businesses and it’s a beautiful thing to do,” he said.

artha Lee Benz did not let you lay an egg. A woman of words, she made a career of policing the troublesome verbs lie and lay. She knew how to put vagrant apostrophes in their place. She vigilantly protected her writers from the error of their words—and her publications from having the egg they lay/lie/laid all over their pages and editors’ faces. For over a decade, Bay Weekly was the publication she protected. In the early years of the paper, when I was the editor, it occurred to me that we needed a dedicated proofreader. For our first decade or so, catching errors in our pages before they went to press depended on a shifting cast of writers. Now many of those standbys had gone on to new things. “I bet we can get a volunteer, some retired gem,” I said, and placed a helpwanted ad in our pages of classified ads. We struck gold when Martha Lee (“Thank you for calling me Martha Lee”) Benz answered our ad. “What makes you think you can do the job?” I asked. “I worked as an editor for the National Planning Association in Washington D.C., for more than 30 years,” she said. “I’m retired, but I want to keep my hand in.” “You’re hired,” I said, swallowing my apprehension that this perfectly packaged professional woman knew my job better than I did. Back then our office was in Deale, about 10 miles from her home, a traditional waterfront cottage in Holland Point at the end of Anne Arundel County. When our office moved to Annapolis in 2007, she followed us, adding 32 miles to her round-trip commute. Year in and year out, as her arthritis grew crueler, she appeared every Tuesday for her afternoon shift. In later years, she carried her rubber-padded pens and seat pillow, as well as her trusty ruler, to help her with the job. Line after line she read, page after page as they flowed freshly laid out from Alex Knoll or Betsy Kehne’s computer to the printer. Week after week she kept us clear, correct and consistent.

tinized it. For no matter how carefully we worked, we’d always left things only she would find. The only devotions she held dearer than her job at Bay Weekly were her daughter, Mollie Flounlacker, and grandchildren, Ian and Ella, whose births we celebrated with Martha Lee. Only their need for her kept her from her weekly place at her Bay Weekly desk and dictionary. (Well, also her foundling feral cats, if she had the mobile vet calling.) If she missed a week, we’d say, “Well, there’ll be errors to find in this week’s paper.” Sure enough, readers would call to shame us with the mistakes they’d found. So faithful was she that after she felt she could no longer make the drive, she hired a teenager as her chauffeur. Of course she didn’t tell us. In she’d walk, impeccably, often beautifully dressed as if for Washington, and we’d say, “Martha Lee is here. Bring on the pages.”

Martha Lee Benz, age 77, of Holland Point, Md., passed away on September 25, 2021. She was born on November 21, 1943, in Baltimore, Md., to the late Curtis Lee and Martha Harrison Ramsey. Devoted mother and grandmother, Martha Lee is survived by her daughter, Mollie Flounlacker and husband Steve; her grandchildren, Ian and Ella Flounlacker; her sisters, Susan (William) Ackerman, Julia (Tony) Walker, Ann Ramsey; and several nieces and nephews. Martha Lee and family lived in Bedford, Va., a town tucked in the Blue Ridge Mountains, before moving to Westminster, Md., while her father finished his PhD at the University of Virginia. They moved to the idyllic town of Abingdon, Va. in the summer of 1953. She was in the class of 1962 at Abingdon High School, where her father served as the principal and mother was the school music teacher. She received a BA from The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Va. in 1966, also the alma mater for Curtis, sister Ann, and daughter Mollie. With a gift for words, Martha Lee worked as an editor for the National Planning Association in Washington D.C., for more than 30 years and served as a mentor to many. In addition to proofreading at Bay Weekly she volunteered at the Calvert County Library. As a lover of antiques, she was an avid participant in the Calvert County American Antique Arts Association. She was filled with a creative spirit in so many ways, including drawing, cooking with an international flair, playing the piano, singing alto, and gardening. She also loved cats! A Celebration of Life will be held at her home of 48 years on Saturday, November 13, 2021. Family and friends are so grateful to bring her home. The celebration will take place from 3-6pm at 812 Bayfront Ave. Holland Point, MD 20714. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Rude Ranch Animal Rescue.

Be sure to wear boat shoes! They slip on and off easily and because most of the beauties at the show are already owned by someone, the dealers want to keep the footprints to a minimum.

Learn something ... whether onshore or on the water. Within the shows, you have tremendous opportunities to learn more about boating at multiple sites. (See our schedule of seminars on page 11).

It’s more than just boats. The shows have the very best deal on clothing you will find, usually even better than online. Whether you need new foul weather gear, sunglasses, shoes, hats for late-season boating, or you just want to add something to your kit, this is the place. Comfortable clothes bought at a discount makes boating more fun. Walk every tent; you’ll find things you never even knew you needed.

Do your holiday shopping right here during the boat shows. You’ll find gifts and items in almost every price range that sailors, fisherm3en and boaters will enjoy. (Mom, I hope you are reading this!)

The food for sale at the Fleet Reserve Club is dependable and good. So are the sandwiches sold by other churches, schools and volunteer organizations outside the show. These are good people and a great part of the show experience—especially the ice cream!

BOAT SHOWS ARE BACK

Photo by Josh Davidson via annapolisboatshows.com.

CONTINUED

For the Powerboat Show, get in line early for the larger yachts and you’ll see amazing things from luxury to ultimate experiences. In the afternoons these boats become busy.

Take the Watermark water taxi from Eastport to the show. This is a great way to see the show from the water. Trips run $4-$9 each way and the taxi runs 8am-11pm. Parking is usually easier in Eastport than downtown. Call 410263-0033 to be picked up or find their dock at the boat show entrance. More at watermarkjourney.com.

6

At the end of the day go up on the deck at Pussers, get yourself a Painkiller and enjoy the view of the show. Don’t forget to join the CBM Bay Weekly crew on Saturday night of the Powerboat Show for our Boat Show Bash with the Jimmy Kenny Pirate Band. If you like laidback rock or country (like Jimmy Buffet or Kenny Chesney), you are going to have a good time at our bash!

11

7

Pay attention to the name tags/badges of the exhibitors. You will find some of the biggest names in sailing at the Sailboat Show. America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race rock stars, owners of sailboat manufacturers, famous yacht designers, and sailing personalities from

8

around the world—most are likely here at some point during this show. Ask the exhibitors where they came from ... often you find out that they literally sailed the boat you are seeing across the ocean from faraway places such as South Africa or Scandinavia just days earlier.

9

Be sure to either extend your stay through Monday evening (Oct. 18), or return to the show to watch the breakdown of the Sailboat Show. This used to be something only the locals participated in, because it’s interesting and lots of fun to watch sailors handle boats in and out of slips and through the docks while the show is being broken down. Often there are people hanging from the rigging throwing trinkets to the crowd. 

10

Catch a shuttle. If you or a guest are staying at an area hotel, you can get a complimentary shuttle on a 28-person minibus from Pasadena-based ZBest Limousine Service to City Dock thanks to a partnership with Visit Annapolis & Anne Arundel County. The bus stops at Live! Casino & Hotel, Hampton Inn, and Residence Inn Arundel Mills BWI. Guests at other area hotels can also park at the casino and catch the shuttle from there, daily beginning at 9am. p

SPORTING LIFE

The lower temperature of fall weather is invigorating the rockfish bite substantially; the fish are always hungry now. The chum bite has turned excellent as has fishing the soft jig on marked schools as well as submerged structure. spanish mackerel remain on the prowl and taking all sorts of small to medium-sized shiny baits moved at six plus knots. The surface bite is violent now as well with rockfish active in the shallows and attacking anything popping on top. norfolk spot are still around (but not for long) and providing excellent baits for live liners and white perch are active in the tributaries taking spinner baits and schooling in the tribs and eating worms, shrimp, clams and crab. crabbing is winding down with mostly females showing up on trotlines, which is fine for commercial but illegal for recreational crabbing. The next two months are the end of the Chesapeake’s angling sport show and the best of the year. Don’t miss out.

FISHFINDER

STORY AND PHOTO BY DENNIS DOYLE

Critical Lessons for Canines I ’ve often said that the company of a dog will inevitably and substantially improve anyone’s experience of outdoor activities. There are some critical caveats, however (aren’t there always?) for everyone’s safety. The first of which is the dog must always promptly come to the owner when called. Training a dog to quickly return to its owner is not a complex task but I’ve noticed that over the last few years it is becoming less and less common. Apparently, because local regulations require dogs to always

ASOS PRESENTS

MOON & TIDES

be on a leash, it is not clear to some owners that the animals might prefer to run free were they not restrained. An accidental release may be rare if the owners are careful and mindful to always have the animals leashed. However, if the animal does slip his lead or get loose, the results could become quickly catastrophic. An animal unfamiliar with automobile traffic has no idea of its lethality and, unless promptly recalled, will blunder blindly into a moving vehicle’s path given the least opportunity. T HURSD AY

F RI D AY

The antidote to this potential disaster is simple training. With a pocket full of small treats, calling your pet, then promptly rewarding it when it comes, is a essential start, even just within the family home. Repeating the exercise over days and in different environments will further imprint the behavior. Then begin to occasionally substitute petting and praise for the edible treats until the dog is thoroughly conditioned to quickly return on command regardless of reward. Varying details such as distractions, time of day and weather will perfect the behavior and may very well save the animal’s life one day. The next command your four-legged partner needs to understand and perform is to “stay”. That is similarly taught starting at your residential entrance when the door is first opened. Holding the pup at stay with a leash and rewarding their restraint with a treat until given a release command will eventually get the job done, with lots of repetition. Varying the circumstances, such as who opens the door,

S ATU RD AY

S U ND AY

M OND AY

TU ES D A Y

and what is on the other side, will only perfect their performance. The next variation of the stay will occur in an automobile, especially if your pup shares the vehicle with the rest of the family. There is no more dangerous nor traumatic situation than a dog jumping out of a car into traffic. Teaching the animal to remain inside and never to leave the open car until commanded or released is one of the most important behaviors that they can learn. Teaching them to remain seated while the car is unloaded of groceries or otherwise attended to, with multiple doors open and over extended periods of time, will eventually make them almost completely accident proof. All of these three very critical training projects are simply performed and reinforced over extended periods of time, with repetition, reward and patience. This training is essential to keeping your buddy safe and alive, not to mention allowing the two-legged side of the equation to more thoroughly relax in the canine’s company. p WEDNESDAY

Free Trees in Annapolis

W

hat could be better than free trees? The City of Annapolis is giving away free trees to residents. The program is called the Community Canopy Program and is available to residents within the city limits. Mayor Gavin Buckley said, “We all need to do what we can to reduce our carbon footprint. The free tree program is a great way to do that and to get the entire community involved in the greening of Annapolis.” This program is a partnership between the city of Annapolis and the Arbor Day Foundation. The goal of the program is to increase the urban tree canopy which benefits residents by capturing carbon, catching storm water runoff, then reducing energy consumption and utility bills through the proper placement of trees and also beautify property values. Households may request up to four trees from the custom web portal (arborday.org/ Annapolis). The trees will be shipped directly to you and include black Tupelo, eastern redbud, northern red oak, red maple and American sycamore. All are appropriate for Zone 7, which includes Annapolis. Before taking advantage of the pro-

gram, you should consider what size tree will fit in the spot you want to plant. Will the tree interfere with any utility lines? Make sure to check for underground utility lines (Miss Utility 800-257-7777). What will the trees need? Full sun, filtered sun or shade? The following are some basic attributes of the trees being offered in the program. Black Tupelo is coming into its extraordinary beauty now with its brilliant fall colors of bright yellow, orange, red, purple and scarlet. The summer foliage is a glossy green and the bark matures to medium gray. The fruits are bluish black and loved by many birds. It grows 30 to 50 feet tall and 20 to 30 feet wide. It likes well-drained acidic soil in full sun to part shade. Eastern redbuds are beautiful in the spring with rosy pink flowers that are edible. It is a leguminous plant that causes nitrogen fixation. It has reddish-purple heart-shaped leaves that become dark green. It grows 20 to 30 feet tall and spreads to 30 feet. It likes partial shade and full sun to light shade. Northern red oak has bristle-tipped leaves but turns red in the fall. It grows to a stately 60 to 75 feet tall with

Menhaden, herring, butterfish, and mackerel move south and are followed by larger fish, seals, dolphins, and whales. If you can get a calm day, whale watching is at its best now. The most common whale seen near shore is the humpback whale. They are up to around 30 feet long, with the females getting larger than males. Distinguishing characteristics are huge pectoral fins with white undersides that are one-third their body length and a knobby lower jaw that projects farther than the upper. The humpback is a baleen whale with large comb-like plates that filters out food from the huge volume of water they gulp into their mouth. Their tongue cleans the baleen plates and helps swallow the fish and squid they caught.

The most common method of feeding is lunging. They will swim under a bait ball and then suddenly lunge upward and open their mouth to engulf the fish. Baleen traps the fish as the water is expelled. Lunge feeding is very energy consuming and at times they have been observed to do low energy trap feeding. In this technique, the whale swims up to and into a school of fish with its mouth wide open. It then will move its large pectoral fins in a way exposing the white undersides and herd the fish into its mouth. Birds attacking above also help to herd the fish. Bubble netting is also a technique used by humpback whales. Several whales will swim in a circle under a school of fish continuously exhaling a stream of bubbles, making a bubbly net that concentrates the fish. The whales swim up through the middle of the ‘net’

Black Tupelo, and red maple in the background. a 45-foot spread. It tolerates pollution and compacted soil, which makes it a good street tree. Red maple brings brilliant color to your landscape especially in the fall with deep red and yellows. It grows 40 to 60 feet tall with a 40-foot spread. It’s fast growing and tolerates many soils. American sycamore is a handsome tree that grows a massive trunk and sloughs off plates leaving a smooth white inner bark that seems to glow against other trees. It makes globular fruit and grows 36 to 75 feet tall. It grows in part shade, sun or shade. p with their mouths open. With these methods of feeding, the whales may eat up to 3,000 pounds of food a day. Humpback whales migrate from their feeding grounds in the north Atlantic to the calving grounds in the West Indies. There are fewer schooling fish near the equator and the whales usually lose weight and may hardly eat at all. The females will have one 13-foot offspring every two or three years. The young feed on their mother’s milk for 10 months, which carries them into the northern feeding grounds. Humpback whales have been internationally protected by the International Whaling Commission since 1966 and federally designated as an endangered species since 1970. Even so, fishing nets and ship strikes frequently kill them. Many become tangled in abandoned netting and drown or starve. Loud engine noise and underwater explosions disrupt their ability to communicate and locate each other and to find food. Over the past 10 years, over-harvesting of forage fish threatens their ability to fatten up for a long journey. Even so, the humpback whale population seems to be recovering although not quite to their previous numbers. Many groups are trying to provide further protection for whales. Simple solutions like limiting catching forage fish, stopping the practice of abandoning nets, and slowing shipping near the coast are trying to be enacted. Whale watching can be really fun but hopefully the tourist boats do not harass the animals so much that they will not feed. p

rank (John Pollono: This Is Us) has always had a scary temper. It landed him in jail for a spell when his daughter was small, leaving Frank’s well-meaning goofball buddies to raise her. Swaino (Jon Bernthal: The Many Saints of Newark) and Packie (Shea Whigham: F9: The Fast Saga) do a pretty good job, and when Frank is released, the motley little family moves forward. For 10 years, Frank gives up drinking and brawling, focusing instead on building up his small repairs garage to make sure his daughter has a chance to thrive in a stable home. But Frank’s temper never really went away. He still punches holes in walls and on a memorable night out with Packie and Swaino, he almost beats a man to death in front of his daughter. Deciding his two buddies are the problem, Frank tells them to never contact him or his family again. Three months later, Frank calls Packie and Swaino back to his garage. He gives a different reason to each of them, but the men assume their friend is ready to forgive and forget. Not quite. Frank has planned a night that will test the three men and their bond.

Small Engine Repair is a fun study of male friendships for about an hour. Pollono, Bernthal, and Whigham clearly had a great time portraying idiot alpha males who bust on each other, drink and act like kids. It’s pretty fun to watch too, featuring bro-type humor peppered with enough actual pathos to keep the men endearing. Then, the film takes a turn that’s… frankly, mystifying. I won’t spoil the twist in this review, but it’s a baffling dramatic turn with a conclusion that’s either deeply infuriating or highly unsatisfying, depending on your view of assault. Pollono directed and adapted Small Engine Repair from his play and the additions to the story made for the film are the strongest bits. The movie works best when the three men are raising a child as a village, or cutting up with each other over beers and bong hits. It’s the meaty dramatic bits that come out of left field and seem to completely kill all the goodwill the opening of the film establishes. Watching Bernthal and Whigham play off each other is especially fun. Each actor is given a sort of broadly drawn character and runs with it. Bernthal’s Swaino is filled with forced bravado to hide the fact that

he’s brow-beaten by his sisters and deeply sensitive. Whigham’s Packie is a genius, whose awkwardness hurts his social prospects. Both actors are worlds above the material they’re working with, but they manage to wring laughs and a surprising amount of empathy out of the script. Still, Pollono’s instincts are odd as both a writer and filmmaker. When he renders a flashback through Packie’s perspective, he chooses to use child actors for the trio—except for Packie. Watching Whigham and two children try to run from a beating isn’t charming, it’s strange. There are several attempts at dark humor, that don’t work. Pollono’s style is similar to that of Martin McDonagh (of In Bruges fame), but his humor isn’t quite as biting and the writing isn’t nearly as sharp, so the whole project falls flat. The missteps are especially frustrating because this is a film with potential. A simpler story about three friends reconnecting after a falling out would have preserved the fun of the first hour without raising any of the massive issues the dramatic twist and ending encounter. If you’re in the mood for an hour of good old-fashioned male-bonding, Small Engine Repair has you covered. But the twist and its resolution is a wrench in the works for this film, which never quite gets the engine to turn over. Fair Drama * R * 103 mins.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD

BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEEL SYNDICATION Great Art

Police in Madison, Wisconsin, are looking for a sculpture that was stolen from the Art Fair on the Square on Sept. 25. The unique piece, titled “Dumpty Humpty,” is a bronze of the nursery rhyme character sitting on a toilet with his pants around his ankles and a book in his hands. It’s worth $1,400, according to United Press International. The vendor told police she’d seen two men loitering around her booth, and when she stepped away, they vanished, along with the artwork. Security camera footage also captured the men leaving with Humpty. Hope they didn’t drop him, because, you know ...

What a Character!

Red Crocs weren’t enough to protect an 11-year-old boy at the Cuyahoga County (Ohio) Fairgrounds on Sept. 18 when a haunted house actor took his role a little too far. According to The Washington Post, the boy, his sister and some friends were headed to the 7 Floors of Hell haunted house when Christopher Pogozelski, 22, approached them, trying to scare them. The boy told Pogozelski he wasn’t afraid, that the ghoul’s knife was “fake.” “Oh, it’s real. Trust me, it’s real,” Pogozelski replied, then began poking the boy’s feet with the weapon until he drew blood. Reportedly, the actor was using his own Bowie knife rather than a rubber one, believing it wasn’t sharp enough to hurt anyone. Still, he lost his job over the incident. After getting bandaged up, the boy returned to be spooked again.

Sign of the Apocalypse

In the village of Ust-Tarka in southwestern Siberia, people are wondering what caused several hundred ravens to fall dead out of the sky on Sept. 22, the Mirror reported. Sergei Kuzlyakin, a veterinarian, said the birds are being tested to see if they were poisoned, but called himself “shocked.” “I have been working as a doctor since 1975 and this is the first time I’ve seen this,” he said. A local ornithologist thought the birds might have ingested pesticides, but the mass death event has “caused anxiety among residents,” local officials noted.

Awesome!

Jacob Hansen and his wife, Quinn Kelsey, went looking for a casserole dish at a Goodwill store near their home in Denver, but they discovered a sentimental treasure instead, KUSA-TV reported on Sept. 28. As they browsed, Hansen looked up at a painting displayed in the store and realized he was the artist: He had created the piece 21 years ago as a high school freshman. His teacher entered the piece in a Jefferson County art show, and it sold at the time for $150, Hansen said. “I saw my signature on the bottom and then it was, ‘Wow, this is unbelievable.’ And I immediately FaceTimed my mom.” The couple bought the painting for $20 and plan to sell it online, with proceeds going to breast cancer research.

Armed and Clumsy

An unnamed man in Jacksonville, Illinois, went to the hospital on Sept. 25 with a gunshot wound, the Journal Courier reported. The victim told Cass County Sheriff Devron Ohrn that he and family members had been testing bulletproof

vests, and he allowed another person to shoot him as he wore one. “Something like this is definitely not a good idea,” Ohrn said. “A bulletproof vest is not a catchall. Also, it is still a crime to shoot another person, even if they tell you to.”

Bright Idea

On Sept. 27 at the Imphal Airport in India, Mohammad Sharif, of Kerala, was arrested for trying to smuggle nearly a kilogram of gold to New Delhi. The Central Industrial Security Force told IndiaTimes.com that Sharif attracted their attention because of the way he was walking. When he was examined, officials found more than 900 grams of gold paste, worth roughly $56,000, in his rectum. Cases such as this are reportedly common in Kerala. The CISF watches for people who seem unable to walk properly or are displaying discomfort on their face.

Wait, What?

Beyhan Mutlu, 50, who lives in the Bursa province of Turkey, was reported missing on Sept. 28 after he wandered away from friends while they were drinking. Later, a search party was convened to look for Mutlu, and he joined the group as a volunteer, not realizing they were looking for him. When volunteers began shouting his name, the lightbulb went on. “I am here,” Mutlu told them, according to Fox News. Police gave him a ride home.

Least Competent Criminal

James Kertz, 38, placed an ad on social media on Sept. 28, hoping to sell a catalytic converter (new in the box!), KTLA-TV reported. But the Branson, Missouri-area man didn’t realize that his photo of the car part also included a bag of methamphetamine and a syringe. On Sept. 29, the Stone County Sheriff’s Office sent detectives to Kertz’s home with a search warrant. “You can imagine his surprise!” said Sheriff Doug Rader. “He still had 48 grams of meth and a pistol that he is forbidden to own! We now have provided him with a new place to stay.”

Can’t Possibly Be True

Cooler weather is on the way, and Arby’s has an extra-special way for fans to warm up. The sandwich chain will begin selling “premium” sweatshirts, sweatpants and other items that have been smoked to smell like a smokehouse, MLive reported. Arby’s collaborated with a Texas smokehouse to create the clothing, which will go on sale on Oct. 4. (Or you could just huddle around the barbecue grill in your old sweats for free.)

Dubious Talent

Brit Paul Oldfield, aka Mr. Methane, enjoys the unusual ability to pass gas on command, Oddity Central reported on Oct. 1. He discovered his talent while doing yoga with his sister as a teenager. And in the entrepreneurial spirit, he’s found a way to make money with his gift. Oldfield travels around the world “entertaining” audiences with parodies of songs (he manipulates his buttocks to change the tone and pitch of his farts) and doing rapid-fire releases. p Send your weird news items with subject line WEIRD NEWS to WeirdNewsTips@amuniversal.com.

Acronym comes from Greek akros (tip) and onym (name), and is a word formed by combining the initial letters of a series of words. We use acronyms in everyday language, like IMO (In my opinion), DOA (Dead on arrival), and OMG (Oh, my God). We owe their usage today to our military during WWII. They gave us many, like, FUBAR (Fouled up beyond all recognition) and SNAFU (Situation normal, all fouled up), but the worst SNAFU and FUBAR was the Navy’s CINCUS (Commander in Chief, U.S. Fleet), which, IMO was DOA and caused multiple OMG’s.
