elcome to CBM Bay Weekly’s 2021 Holiday Gift Guide! If those words send you into a panic, we understand. “But it’s still the week before Thanksgiving, for cryin’ out loud!” you may be saying. This is true—and I’m not usually one to jump the gun. I don’t drink pumpkin spice in August and I don’t sing carols in October. I was more than a little surprised last Saturday (Nov. 13, for cryin’ out loud!) to drive around a few neighborhoods in Anne Arundel County and find lights hung, Christmas trees decorated, and Santa inflatables already waving at me from lawns. But when it comes to gifts, I’ll begrudgingly admit, starting early does make sense. Let me explain. Most people can spot a hastily chosen gift from a mile away. Maybe it’s a little too generic. “Look, Dad, a tie. I know you wear those!” Maybe it’s an online gift certificate you printed on December 24 and shoved into an envelope. Or maybe you felt pressured to find the perfect gift and overthought the whole thing until you ran out of time. “I’ll get my neighbor these cute monogrammed

pillows! But wait—what’s her middle name? I can’t be sure. I wonder if I can verify it on Google, or maybe a property records search. Maybe I should go to her house and sneak a peek at a piece of her mail…” All these struggles can be avoided by making your list early. One of my friends—the best gift-giver I know— keeps her list in mind all year. Then, when she’s in a shop she says things like, “Look, a cute yellow purse! My friend Meg loves yellow…” And voila, thoughtful gifts are chosen. Another compelling reason to shop a bit earlier this year: supply chain shortages. In the year and a half since the great pandemic toilet paper shortage, more surprising products have been in short supply. Every few weeks a news article predicts the next big shortage. Cars! Lunchables! And everything in between. CBS News says that the following top holiday items may be hard to find this year: PlayStation and Xbox gaming consoles, large-box toys (think Barbie’s Dream House) that take up extra space on shipping containers, plus books and

jewelry (especially diamonds). Even frozen turkeys and artificial Christmas trees are in short supply, the news outlet reports. It may be best to buy now to avoid backordered items or delays into January, and prices are quickly inflating on the items still available. All this is enough to make you want to steer clear of these in-demand items and just go to a local shop, where you can buy a simple gift right off the shelf. And that’s exactly what the Bay Weekly Gift Guide is here to help you do. On page 8, you’ll find our picks for special gifts, from local and independently owned shops. You’ll find Chesapeake Country-specific items that don’t feel generic at all. You won’t have to worry about delayed shipping. And you’ll be supporting your neighbors’ businesses—making you the ultimate thoughtful gift-giver. Happy stress-free shopping! p —MEG WALBURN VIVIANO, CBM EDITORIAL DIRECTOR

EDGEWATER BOAT FIRE, EXPLOSION UNDER INVESTIGATION BY MEG WALBURN VIVIANO

A

fiery explosion destroyed a boat on a creek off the Rhode River Friday night, but the outcome could have been even worse. The Woodland Beach Volunteer Fire Department says multiple 911 callers reported explosions and fire on a boat at a pier in Edgewater, on Cadle Creek in the Beverly Beach area. Neighbors feared the owner might be on board,

since his golf cart was parked at the pier. Woodland Beach VFD, Anne Arundel County Fire’s marine unit, and the Annapolis City Fire Department all responded, finding a 27-foot sailboat fully engulfed in flames, and drifting away from the pier. Thankfully it turned out the owner was not on board; he had been working on the boat earlier in the day, Woodland Beach VFD says. The boat was in an area with several piers and boats in close proxim-

ity. Emergency responders were able to guide the boat, a 1965 Columbia 27 called Brady’s Lady, according to the Anne Arundel County Fire Department, away from other boats in the cove. The fire was extinguished using both water and foam. The boat was mostly underwater at the time of the investigation, the county fire department says. The cause is undetermined still under investigation.

BAY RACER WINS OFFSHORE WORLD CHAMPS IN PANDEMIC BOAT HE BUILT BY DUFFY PERKINS

D

uring hurricane season, it’s normal for a storm to brew in Florida, head up the Eastern seaboard, and hit the Chesapeake Bay. But just the reverse seems to have happened as Arnold’s Brit Lilly took his 29-foot Hurricane of Awesomeness down to Key West for the Race World Offshore World Championships earlier this month. Lilly dominated racing and ended up taking home the title of World Champion in the Stock V class. This is not Lilly’s first world championship: he already has 10 under his belt. But this one is special, as it is very personal. Lilly’s Hurricane is a single-engine Extreme Vee based on the hull design of boatbuilder Mark Spates, who passed away from cancer in 2019. In 2003, the first generation of the hull scored a perfect season and won the World Championship with Spates’ friend Steve Miklos at the helm. “I knew Brit’s father,” Miklos says of racing great Art Lilly, who has more world championships than anyone. “I had raced rather unsuccessfully against him. So, when Mark asked me [before his death] to meet Art’s son and help out, I reluctantly agreed.” After Spates’ passing, Miklos worked with the family to honor his wishes and get the boat designs and molds to Lilly. “I’m not a boatbuilder,” he says. “I would glue my hands together—and have. But Brit—coming out of that shop, he could easily be a top-five boatbuilder in no time. He does it right; doesn’t cut corners. There aren’t a lot of boatbuilders like that.” Lilly’s original plan was to build pleasure boats from the designs; five-seaters with outboard engines perfect for poker runs and family Sundays. But when the pandemic hit, Lilly spent his time doing what he was made to do: perfecting race boats. Starting in February of 2020, Lilly put in thousands of hours working on the boat at his family’s shop, Lilly Sport

Boats in Arnold. “We used some of my own bottom designs to incorporate better handling at top speeds,” says Lilly, who pushed Hurricane to 95 mph on the straightaways in Key West. “We also went a different route for the materials to make it stronger and lighter. The first generations were fiberglass, but these are all carbon, Kevlar, and epoxy.” “Anybody in offshore powerboat racing knows Lilly Sport Boats,” says Jimmy Jernigan, president of the Chesapeake Bay Power Boat Association and a friend of Lilly. “And anybody can make a boat go fast, but Brit will make it go the fastest. It’s in his blood.” The result is a world champion boat with a story. “I wasn’t really planning this,” Lilly says. “But Mark (Spates) wanted me to keep doing it and get these boats out there. The Extreme boat lives on, and so does he.” Lilly, Kevin Smith, and Hurricane of Awesomeness will next be in Englewood, Fla., for the Offshore Powerboat Association’s World Championships. In 2022, look for Lilly racing again with Travis Pastrana in the 47-foot Miss Geico catamaran.

new community center is coming to northwestern Anne Arundel County. State and county leaders joined County Executive Steuart Pittman last week to break ground on the new Severn Center, an intergenerational facility to be built at 1160 Reece Road in Severn. The $15.7 million facility, on land adjacent to Van Bokkelen Elementary School, will be the new home of a regional Boys & Girls Club, a senior activity center, gymnasium and a community space. Local organizers had been asking for a community center in the area for decades. Nearly 30 years ago, Glenda Gathers scratched out plans for the center. Known in the community as “Mrs. G”, Gathers was on hand at the community celebration to witness the progress. Organizers say the Severn Center should open in 2023. An $800,000 grant was included in the capital budget by Governor Hogan through the state’s Department of Aging to specifically support the Senior Activity Center, and an additional $2 million grant was included by the Senate. “To finally have every dollar allocated for construction of this new community center is fulfillment of a dream that residents had 30 years ago,” said County Executive Pittman when the grant was announced in April. “None of it would have been possible without the passion of residents and their strong delegation of elected representatives from District 32.” “I am delighted to see that the entire State Senate supports the Severn Center … my colleagues understand how important this project is to our residents in the Severn community,” said Senator Pam Beidle, who represents the district. To develop the approximately $15.5 million project, additional funding was found through the county’s Video Lottery Terminal Fund, revenue generated from Live! Casino, as recommended by the Local Development Council and the county’s Community Development Fund. The development also received a capital grant awarded through the state’s capital grant process last year. “This building represents the commitment of our community stakeholders who have worked for years to bring quality programming for children, youth, and adults in Severn. It is great we can leverage local dollars with this State funding to make it happen,” said Delegate Mark Chang, who serves on the Local Development Council. The Severn Intergenerational Center is one of Pittman’s key initiatives and is the result of partnerships with Severn area community stakeholders, Arundel Community Development Services (ACDS), the Department of Aging and Disabilities, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County. ACDS is serving as the project developer.

library on wheels isn’t new to Calvert County. In fact, the Calvert Library system was born as a bookmobile in 1959, and became a welcome sight to residents of the rural county, who didn’t have access to new books without the mobile library service. A visitor of the original bookmobile, Pat Nutter, relates, “In those days we had black and white TV with about

bookmobile in Calvert County is access. The library is all about giving access to people who don’t have it and we are going to bridge a lot of gaps with our library on wheels,” she said. Delegate Rachel Jones, also a member of the library’s Board of Trustees, was on hand to help introduce the bookmobile. “I love to say I’m a product of the Calvert Library system. It’s really a hub of this community, not just for books but for opportunities to come together and have important discussions and to have access to resources.” After the speeches and ribbon cutting, everyone was invited on board to tour the bookmobile and even check out materials to take home.

three channels, so when the bookmobile showed up that was an exciting day!” For years, the library bookmobile made the rounds, stopping off throughout the county four days a week. Over time, Calvert County filled with roads and businesses and brick-and-mortar libraries. The bookmobiles went unused—until now. A new 26-foot-long library on wheels, equipped with solar roof panels, wireless internet access, and shelves full of brand-new materials, was front and center at a ribbon cutting Nov. 9. Carrie Willson, executive director of Calvert

Library, told the attendees, “It’s especially sweet to me to be bringing a bookmobile to Calvert Library.” Willson’s first library job was in western Maryland’s Washington County, the site of the very first bookmobile in the United States in 1905. “We’re beyond thrilled to bring this bookmobile to the community. It can bring magical experiences to children and adults alike,” she said. Though the library has maintained a small outreach department over the years, its scope was centered on bringing materials to licensed daycare providers and homebound individuals. Such services were needed in the county, but the librarians dreamed of more. They wanted to find a way to get materials and resources to community members who struggle with transportation to the four Calvert Library branches. Over time, the outreach department got a new name and a new mission. Rebranded Mobile Services, the department hired additional staff members, purchased new materials, and dreamed of bookmobiles. The funding was raised, and the day finally came to introduce the new member of the fleet. Lisa Wieland, supervisor of Mobile Services, heads up a growing team of librarians dedicated to reaching people in all corners of Calvert County and says the bookmobile will be traveling a route that will include community centers, the county courthouse, special community events, and residential neighborhoods. “The greatest benefit of having a

pandemic. Also on Nov. 1, Anne Arundel County Council voted unanimously to extend its outdoor dining program through January 2023. Mayor Gavin Buckley and the city council decided not to continue the program due to the city no longer being in a State of Emergency due to the pandemic, which had motivated the expansion of the outdoor dining program in the summer of 2020. Buckley, however, was quick to recognize the public’s fondness for the program. “The momentum on this issue seems to be on the side of it continuing,” said Buckley. “The pandemic opened our eyes to the utility of it, but it turns out that lots of people think it is a cool thing to enjoy a meal out-of-doors.” One of those proponents is Anthony Clarke, co-owner of the Irish restaurant Galway Bay on Maryland Ave. Although he understands the city’s decision to let the program expire, he certainly witnessed the benefits of expanded outdoor dining over the past year. “I commend the city council and the administration for how hard they worked and how quickly they were able to get the recovery plan into place,” Clarke said. Even through the winter months, Clarke saw the public’s enjoyment of street dining rise as the outside temperatures dropped. “We’d have people out there wrapped up in blankets and enjoying the street and the view and the atmosphere. It worked fantastically,” Clarke said. “I think that if you happen to get one thing out of COVID that was positive, it was people going out to experience an interaction with the outside atmosphere of light and music, and the slow sunsets and people walking by them.” Some Annapolis business owners, on the other hand, were looking forward to the program’s end. The sacrifice of parking spaces for outdoor dining tables did not provide equal benefits to all businesses on the same street. “As much as we enjoy, just like anyone else, outdoor dining, the additional parking that we’re going to get from (the end of the Recovery Zones) will assist us and our business greatly,” said Michael Ernst, owner of Blue Crab Antiques, also on Maryland Ave. Ernst’s customers are “happy that they have outdoor dining, but parking has always been an issue in downtown Annapolis. With the loss of parking spaces, (the difficulty) has increased.” Clarke understands that these contradictions must be weighed. “I know parking has been a prime point for some residents and also some businesses, so I think the mayor and the council have expanded it for as long as they can. I don’t feel bad about it (outdoor dining) getting taken away now. I understand the predicament and how they balanced it,” Clarke added. “I think it’s fine.” So holiday shopping is now a little easier in downtown Annapolis, thanks to parking spaces becoming available (and free at metered spaces, Thanksgiving till New Years) but for those who still want to dine alfresco, options are available throughout the county. p November 18 - November 25, 2021 • BAY WEEKLY • 5

t was hard to hear Tracy Garrett and Celestine Brown describe how bad the traffic is on the narrow two-lane road running past their homes in the Lothian area of western Anne Arundel County. That’s because their voices were repeatedly drowned out by the diesel rumble of dump trucks passing by as the two women stood speaking on a weekday inside the entrance to Sands

Road Park. “Speeding all the time, crossing the line all the time. They do what they want. It’s the wild, wild west,” Garrett said between trucks. “It’s nuts, and it’s dangerous,” Brown added. “Bottom line, dangerous—mentally, physically, emotionally.” Hundreds of the bulky vehicles traverse Sands Road daily on their way

to and from a large sand and gravel quarry as well as two former quarries being filled in and returned to nature. As a result, Brown and Garrett contend, they and other residents living along what the county classifies as a scenic and historic road are subjected to poor air quality, excessive noise and other hazards that degrade their quality of life and threaten their health.

There are also five mobile home communities in the vicinity, each with its own small wastewater treatment plant that discharges into the nearby Patuxent River or one of its tributaries. In the past few years, five of the treatment plants have been out of compliance with their discharge permits more often than not, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection’s ECHO database. And there are two closed rubble landfills nearby—one of which is now Sands Road Park, consisting of a couple of basketball courts and mostly open fields. Both are leaking cadmium, a toxic metal, into groundwater, tests have shown. Patuxent Riverkeeper Fred Tutman calls the Sands Road area a “sacrifice zone,” a term used for communities— often low-income or people of color— where residents live close to polluting industries or other hazards. Tutman contends that residents there have had a series of disruptive resource extraction and waste disposal facilities imposed on them over the decades, and little or nothing has been done to ensure those facilities comply with what little is required of them. “There’s a carrying capacity, a limit to what any community can tolerate,” Tutman said. “And these guys have way exceeded it, because the concept is, if you’ve got the right zoning you can have as many trucks or as many impacts as you want … Really, the sky is the limit.” Garrett and Brown, who are Black, first contacted Tutman, who says he’s the nation’s only Black riverkeeper, more than a decade ago, seeking his help in getting their grievances addressed by local and state politicians and policy makers. “We want our environmental rights down here,” Garrett said, “just like they have elsewhere.” The two women say they fear that the dust, diesel exhaust and buried chemicals could be fouling the air they breathe and the water they drink from wells. “You can’t prove a cause and effect, necessarily, but scientists really know that all these pollutants cause what’s happening to a lot of us,” Garrett said. In 2015, students at the University of Maryland School of Public Health conducted a “health impact assessment” of the Lothian area and found that residents there “are overburdened with


pollution from multiple sources and facilities that show noncompliance and federal and state violation histories.” As part of their study, the students took noise readings at the reclamation sites and wastewater plants, recording decibel levels the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says are annoying and make it difficult to hear others speaking. Some of the recordings reached levels that can cause hearing loss. According to demographic data compiled by the EPA, about 20 percent of those living within a 3-mile radius of the mining and reclamation sites are African Americans and 16 percent have incomes lower than the county average. The University of Maryland study notes that the percentage of people of color was higher closest to the facilities.

A history of special exceptions

Kyle Murray, land general manager for Chaney Enterprises, which operates Riddle Sand and Gravel, said extraction has been going on along Sands Road since the 1940s because the Patuxent River is located in the Coastal Plain, which contains the raw materials in constant demand for building roads, bridges, housing and parks. “We don’t get to pick where the sand and gravel is,” he said. The company operates nine quarries in Maryland, Delaware and Virginia, with about 600 employees. He said he expects mining to continue on Sands Road for another 10–15 years. Murray acknowledged that a sand and gravel quarry is an unpopular neighbor virtually anywhere. But he pointed out that once the mining is done, the cratered sites get filled in and revegetated. Chaney’s old mines have been reclaimed as wetland preserves, parks, housing developments and even an 18-hole golf course, he said. The Sands Road area is zoned for rural-agricultural land use, but sand and gravel mining is allowed with a “special exception” to the zoning code. Records show that the county has repeatedly approved or renewed special exceptions there over the last three decades. In 1991, over neighbors’ objections, landowner Raymond Riddle got a special exception to mine about a third of 163 wooded acres along Sands Road. “This office is mindful of the concerns of residents about truck traffic,” the hearing officer wrote, “and many of those concerns are reasonable.” But he said the operator had agreed to limit truck activity to 200 round trips a day and that the facility would be “closed out within five years.” Five years later, Riddle decided to lease the sand and gravel mine to Chaney and petitioned the county to extend the special exception. A civic association agreed not to oppose it under certain conditions, including no increase in truck traffic and extending the operation for no more than 10 years. The hearing officer, citing Chaney’s “good reputation and past performance,” approved it for another 15 years. Also in 1996, the county approved another special exception on the other

side of Sands Road to mine sand and gravel for 25 years on a tract that borders the Patuxent River. The operator there, not Chaney at the time, pledged to limit truck traffic to no more than 40 round trips per day. By 2016, the county had authorized Chaney, which had taken over mining on both sides of Sands Road, to expand those operations to other portions of the 451-acre tract. The approved truck limit had grown to 390 round trips a day—nearly double what had been the maximum for just the Riddle site 30 years earlier. Within the prescribed 10-hour limit on operations, that works out to a truck rolling in every 3 minutes or so to pick up sand and gravel before heading back out on the road again. Murray said he has offered to meet with residents upset about the mining operations to discuss what might be done with the reclaimed former mine site. Tutman said he met with Murray but concluded that in his opinion, “they weren’t offering much.” Residents, now aided by the Chesapeake Legal Alliance, a nonprofit environmental law firm in Annapolis, have continued pressing the county to crack down. Their cause has drawn attention and support from the local NAACP and the Caucus of African American Leaders, a local civic group. Officials have responded by meeting with them and pledging to see what they could do. Earlier this year, the county twice conducted counts of trucks entering and leaving the mine and reclamation sites on Sands Road and found the 390-trip daily limit being violated, according to Lori Rhodes, deputy chief administrative office for land use. In one five-day count, the tally topped the limit three times, by as much as 30 percent in one case, she said. In May, the county’s zoning office wrote Chaney and the owners of the land being mined and reclaimed to say they were in violation of the zoning code, including exceeding the truck limit. The letters warned the recipients that failure to comply could lead to fines and further legal action. Murray denied that there had been any violations. He contended that the county’s traffic counts were in error and that the company scrupulously monitors truck traffic at the site to stay below the limit. Nonetheless, Rhodes said the county was preparing to go to court. “It’s our responsibility to ensure they come into compliance,” she said. But Rhodes cautioned that state law regulates sand and gravel mining. The county can seek to force them to comply with the terms of the special exception, she said, but can’t simply shut them down. “I’ve been out to the site, I’ve seen the trucks,” she said. “But I also know the zoning allows the use.” The Maryland Department of the Environment regulates sand and gravel mining but has received no complaints about the Sands Road sites, said spokesman Jay Apperson. p

GARDENING FOR HEALTH

STORY AND PHOTO BY MARIA PRICE

Gifts for Gardeners

T

o me, finding gifts for gardeners is easy. I like everything for the garden. If there’s a gardener in your life, something we all love receiving is a special plant. For the holidays, amaryllis make wonderful gifts. Every time I see some of my amaryllis blooming, I think of the friends that gave them to me. They all rebloom at slightly different times after the first of the year, so you can enjoy the flowers from December to February. You can also collect a variety of different amaryllis to enjoy. One of my favorite varieties is “Cherry Nymph”, which has tripled sets of petals in a deep red. It also sends up about three

stalks of flowers. “Bright Nymph” is striped red and white, with colors in various shades of reds, whites, peaches, and pinks. White Flower Farm (1-800-503-9624) has a dizzying array of varieties. Poinsettias are traditional plants at Christmas and come in so many varieties. Homestead Gardens carry many styles, from small to large. Bulb pots, also carried by White Flower Farm, come in beautiful com-

binations and can be ordered to arrive as early as mid-December. You put these in a sunny window and a delightful display of colorful bulbs bloom in about 4-5 weeks. Tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and more are pre-planted in these beautiful bulb pots. Wreaths made with dried flowers and herbs also make a great gift as they’ll remind the gardener of a blooming garden. Gardeners love to see birds in their gardens, so anything that attracts birds is appreciated. There are birdseed garlands, wreaths and door decorations made to feed birds. Bird feeders and birdhouses make great gifts. Bluebird houses with bluebird suet make a great gift. Lavender and rosemary plants make great holiday gifts especially when

Hand tremors and even heartbeats cause the lens to shake, and makes it difficult to see a stable image at higher magnifications. My camera has a very narrow viewing angle, so I use my binoculars to scan for animals that I can than focus my camera on. A magnification of eight is best for my use. The size of the front lens matters as the larger the number, the more light is gathered and the brighter the image. The downside is, the bigger the number, the heavier the binoculars. Better quality lenses will have a sharp image and good color from edge to edge but the prices go a little crazy. A cedar waxwing enjoying a winterberry snack from a bush in the author’s backyard.

they’re clipped into a Christmas tree shape. You can shape your own starting in late summer. Keep pruning until you have a dense shape. Keep it in a sunny window and don’t overwater. Adding a set of mini-lights makes them very special. Lavender sachets or pillows are also a great gift for a long winter’s nap. Lavender potpourri and hand cream are also a restorative gift. Garden gloves and tools make great gifts. Foxgloves are a brand of gloves that fit tightly and stretch. They’re very comfortable and come in long lengths for pruning roses. I also recommend a good pair of clippers make a wonderful gift. Felco clippers come in many styles and last for many years. I’ve had mine for over 20 years and love them. A gardener will always remember the person who gave them a pair of Felco pruners. p (DSLR) and a mirrorless camera, but they are expensive and hard to use. Compact cameras are less expensive and easier to use. Some have huge magnification (zooming) capabilities and produce decent images. Some examples: Nikon Coopix P1000, Panasonic LumixDC-FZ80 and Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V. These cameras are good for stationary objects but not as good as a DSLR or mirrorless for birds in flight. Wide-brimmed hats help in avoiding the sun but also I use it to hide my eyes from birds. Bending the hat over a camera hides my face from the animals and makes them less skittish. The hat I like is a waterproof Frog Tog widebrimmed hat. For the animals themselves, I think that giving native plants that help sustain them would be well received as presents. Winterberry holly has bright red berries around the holidays that birds, like cedar waxwings, love. Other holly trees also have berries that nourish wintering birds. Placing an order with spring delivery for several of the native species of milkweed (Asclepias) will help increase the falling numbers of monarch butterflies. Swamp milkweed and butterfly weed are species of Asclepias that have pretty flowers and a pleasant smell and adapt to humus filled gardens. They are a lovely gift for hungry monarch caterpillars. p

There’s fish still available in the Bay and when you can get FISHFINDER out on the water they are at their best tablewise. Fat from the fall feed-up, both rockfish (open till Dec.10) and white perch (open year round) are prime dinner entrees. Try around the Bay Bridge structures for rockfish or just south of the Eastern Shore rockpile and the mouth of the Eastern Bay for prime white perch territory.

big migrating rockfish fresh from the Atlantic to feast on yearling menhaden and perch, not to mention snacking on the silversides and Bay anchovies that remain in our waters. Technique, timing and tenacity are three things critical to success in the late season as well as a healthy dose of luck. While relentlessly trolling bigger baits, umbrella rigs and chandeliers is one strategy that can produce a quality fish this time of year, if you’re a light tackle angler that isn’t an option. Bouncing a bucktail with a liphooked bull minnow down 30 feet or more, though, has always had a decent chance of seducing one last good fish. The Norfolk spot have been driven out of the Bay by the colder water and the urge to head for wintering grounds, therefore they are no longer available for live-lining, a reliable producer of bigger rock. But it’s prudent to recall that before the spot arrived this past summer, hungry rockfish were eating small white perch with just as much abandon. They’ll do that again once they realize the spot are gone. The Bay Bridge, also known as the Chesapeake’s Giant Rockfish Magnet, is once again a prime location for attracting wandering stripers, especially the migrators that just arrived and are getting their Bay bearings. Presenting a small white perch down deep among the pilings is another way S U ND AY

to increase your odds of hooking up with a fish that will test your drag. The tough little perch also stay frisky and swim deep a long time in the colder waters, a real bonus compared to the more delicate summertime spot. I keep a couple of Abu bait-casting reels filled with 50-pound braid with a few feet of 30-pound top shelf fluorocarbon leader just for this effort. The heavy braid not so much for its strength but for its ability to withstand the stress of getting wrapped around and seesawed back out of the rough pilings. Neither mono nor light braid will hold up long to big fish fouled on a barnacled structure. Live-lining smaller perch at the mouths of the tribs can also be excellent this time of year, particularly late afternoon into the evenings when small pods of marauding rock will venture into relatively shallow water to hunt out the last of the perch and peanut bunker finally abandoning the headwaters. Stealth is important in skinny water when drifting the perch and permitting the baits to wander 30 and 40 yards away from the boat is sometimes an essential tactic when tidal currents are light. With stiffer current, anchoring on the river mouth’s channel edges and drifting back weighted, lip-hooked perch near the bottom till well after dark can put that one last lunker in your cooler. p WEDNESDAY

ichard Williams (Will Smith: Bad Boys for Life) has big plans for his girls. He’s raising five daughters in Compton, Calif., with clear goals set for each of them—he tells whoever listens that he’s got future doctors and lawyers in his family. But his two youngest, Venus (Saniyya Sidney: The Passage) and Serena (Demi Singleton: The Godfather of Harlem) are the ones he devotes most of his time to. Richard has decided that the girls are tennis

prodigies. He’s right, but no one else seems to see it. But the short-sightedness of others will not stop Richard from helping his girls achieve greatness. They practice rain or shine on the public tennis courts, where gang members threaten Richard and harass the girls. Richard and his wife Brandy (Aunjanue Ellis: Lovecraft County) work constantly and expect big things from the girls—their philosophy being that busy children don’t have time to get involved in drugs and crime. Though the Williams family have an incredible work ethic, Venus and Serena have plateaued in their progress. Richard and Brandy have coached them as far as they can and now the girls need a professional. Richard creates pamphlets and videos showing off the girls’ skills and drives to every

Richard adjusts the family plan, carefully watching Cohen’s coaching sessions so he can repeat them with Serena. As the two girls grow their skills, Richard’s ego grows as well. He believes that only he can get the girls where they need to be and won’t listen to anyone else’s opinions. Is Richard’s doggedness the key to success or does he need to listen to his girls? An inspiring sports film with some great performances, King Richard is a crowd-pleaser. It may seem odd to focus on the father of Venus and Serna—the more obvious subjects of a sports biopic—but the dedication of both Williams parents has been central to the girls’ success. Both Venus and Serena, who serve as executive producers, approve of King Richard. Director Reinaldo Marcus Green (Joe Bell) condenses the family’s remarkable story beautifully, keeping the movie from dragging. It is because of these familial connections, however, that the film fails to truly dig deep with its subject. Yes, we get some nuance into Richard’s life and his other children, but King Richard is very careful not to damage his image too deeply. It’s also interesting that the film features Richard’s five daughters, but only shows his concern with the two. Is there no resentment on the part of the other children that Richard’s entire life revolves around Venus and Serena? Green also doesn’t focus on Brandy enough, a mom who coached Serena while Richard and Venus were out at country clubs. Still, Richard Williams is a fascinating figure. The film doesn’t shy away from his ego or oddities—Smith spends the whole movie in Williams’ signature short shorts and knee-high socks. But what keeps the film from devolving into hero worship is Smith’s nuanced performance. Smith walks a fine line, showing Williams’ devotion, but also the deep insecurities that lead to his egocentric behavior. Growing up in a deeply racist part of Louisiana, Richard’s determination to break both his daughters into a white-dominated sport is poignant and inspiring. Richard is at once a kind and supportive father, and a man who insists on getting credit for his daughter’s hard work. It’s a fascinating portrayal of a man who frequently courted controversy. If you’re in the market for a family-friendly film about achieving goals and supporting your kids, King Richard is a great option. It’s a genuine, funny film that speaks to the power of family. If you’ve ever spent a Saturday cheering on a child at a sporting event, this movie is for you. Good Biopic * PG-13 * 138 mins.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD

BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEEL SYNDICATION Awesome!

• A Southwest Airlines ramp agent named Valerie has been working for the company since 2011 in Phoenix, People reported, and along the way has amassed an unusual collection: zipper pulls. She was picking up several each day and decided to do something with them, so she chose a sturdy dress from a thrift store and began sewing the pulls on in an interesting pattern. “The challenge was sewing them on in a straight, even line, since fabric moves and stretches,” she said. She even grouped the brand names (Samsonite, Dockers, etc.) together. After a decade and more than 800 zipper pulls, Valerie finished her dress and donated it to the airline, which will display it at company headquarters. • Betty Reid Soskin, a ranger at the Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park in Richmond, California, has been on the job for 15 years, but that’s not what she was celebrated for on Sept. 22. Soskin, whose tours are some of the most popular at the park, according to People. com, turned 100 years old that day. She is the oldest active ranger in the National Park Service. In 2015, she said she is not “a trained historian—my tours are necessarily a way to share my oral history with the public. I tell the story of the African American workers.” • In Summit County, Colorado, schools are struggling to find bus drivers, but Josh Smith, 12, has a solution. Smith, who lives with his parents in Silvert-

horne, approached them about kayaking to school across Lake Dillon, rather than having them drive him the long way. “I have a 12-year-old who wants to be adventurous, wants to do something none of his buddies would do, and how can I say no to that?” said Jason, Josh’s dad. KDVR-TV reported that on Josh’s first commute, he arrived almost on time. “I was late to one of my classes, and everyone was like, ‘Josh, where were you? We were worried,’ and I was like, ‘Oh, I was kayaking to school,’” Josh said. • ABC News reported on Oct. 20 that in Wellington, New Zealand, police went above and beyond for a certain emergency call. When a dispatcher answered the call, a little voice started out, “Hi. Police lady?” The 4-year-old then went on to say, “I’ve got some toys for you. Come over and see them.” Around then, an adult took the phone, confirming that it was not an emergency, but the dispatcher sent Constable Kurt over anyway. The little boy showed off his toys to the officer and had a “good, educational chat” about the use of the emergency number (111 in New Zealand). “He did have cool toys,” Constable Kurt confirmed. He reciprocated by turning on his patrol car’s lights for the boy.

Inexplicable

• On Sept. 17, at a penguin colony near Simonstown, South Africa, 63 endangered African penguins were killed by a swarm of bees, CNN reported. South African National Parks issued a statement saying that the “deaths

occurred suddenly sometime between Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.” Examinations revealed that “all the penguins had multiple bee stings,” many of which were around the birds’ eyes, which one expert called a “fluke.” • After 20 years in operation, a roller coaster in the Fuji-Q Highland Park amusement park in Fujiyoshida, Japan, has been shut down because at least six riders over the last 10 months or so have suffered broken bones while riding. The Do-Dodonpa is famous for accelerating from 0 to 112 mph in just 1.56 seconds, Vice News reported. Four of the casualties involved broken necks or backs. After suspending the coaster, the park and Sansei Technologies, which manufactured the ride, inspected it to see if they could determine the cause of the injuries, but they came to no conclusions.

Happy Halloween!

Singer-songwriter Brocarde, 38, has revealed that she is in love with a Victorian ghost, Edwardo, who died at age 35 when he fell down a well, the Daily Star reported. Edwardo first came to her on a night when she was having difficulty sleeping, making the whole room cold and then introducing himself to her and whispering “I love you” in her ear. He proves himself by blowing out candles and leaving steam hearts on the shower walls, she said. But Brocarde is also afraid of Edwardo: “My biggest fear is that he’ll expect too much from me and kill me so I’m a spirit too,” she said. After Brocarde revealed her ghostly

paramour on ITV’s “This Morning,” she said Edwardo “ghosted” her: “Edwardo seems furious with me since I’ve gone public with our romance,” she said. She hopes to lure him back on Halloween with scattered rose petals and candles. “I may even cook him some typical Victorian dishes to win him back.”

Weapons of Choice

• Tahonee Fickes, 20, chose the closest weapon at hand to assault Kimberly Pittman, 52, inside a Walmart in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, on Oct. 7. A criminal complaint filed on Oct. 27 charges that Fickes “threw a cold chicken” at Pittman, striking her on the back of the head, according to The Smoking Gun. Fickes and Pittman are not related, and police have not determined a motive for the chicken hit. Fickes is facing an unrelated child endangerment charge as well. • As Braiden Lankford, 20, and her mother, 50, argued about the “cleanliness of the house” on Oct. 23 in their home near Tampa Bay, Lankford struck her mother in the head with two tacos, The Smoking Gun reported. When police arrived, “the victim had food debris all around her on the couch and on the back of her shirt,” police reported. The mother was not injured, but Lankford was charged with domestic battery. p Send your weird news items with subject line WEIRD NEWS to WeirdNewsTips@amuniversal.com.

PUZZLES THE INSIDE WORD

How many 2 or more letter words can you make in 2 minutes from the letters in: Jazzetry (20 words) Coined in 1959 during the ‘beat’ heyday, jazzetry combined poetry reading with jazz music. It was seriously cool, you dig? “Yeah, baby, I hopped in the lead-sled with my used-to-be, since she knows her groceries, dig? We used to jungle-up, cause she was off-the cob, but now she’s struttin’ down varicose alley and hanging paper. I noodled it out and got x-ray eyes to see what’s what with her being zonked on the head, dig? So man, play something cool and I’ll meter it too for these gin-mill cowboys, and make sure they focus their audios while interviewing their brains. Far out, man. Far out.”
