Winter Wonderland or Woeful Weather?

I

have, what I have learned, is an unpopular opinion. At least it’s an opinion not terribly popular in Chesapeake Country. I love snow. When a forecast shows that icon of little snowflakes under a cloud, I admit to getting a little excited. Yes, I know it causes great headache and panic. I realize that everyone will buy up all the staples at the grocery store. But I don’t mind. Snow is amazing. I think it’s because I grew up in Louisiana and snow was something so magical and mysterious because it rarely happened. Christmas was often spent in shorts and t-shirts. No one I knew owned a sled or a pair of skis. But when those fluffy frozen flakes did fall—we would spend hours outside willingly. The average snowfall in Louisiana is about 0.2 inches—on par with Florida and Hawaii. Of course a lot of what we called “snow” was really just ice and sleet, but there were a few moderate snowfalls that I remember well.

One winter I distinctly recall being allowed to “stay up late” because the snow made it seem like daylight outside. So I walked down to my nearest friend’s house and we begged her father to take us sledding on sheet pans. It wasn’t “real” sledding, but we didn’t care. It meant no school and hours of free time to play in the neighborhood because no one in their right mind would be out driving in it. (Not the case here in Maryland. I am constantly amazed at how many people are willing to drive in a snowstorm. Stay home and enjoy a hot beverage instead, I say.) The most memorable was the winter of 1983-84. It is a fuzzy memory at best, but it is engrained in my mind thanks to a ridiculous number of photographs in my mother’s albums of me and my younger sister in fat puffy coats and mittens. Probably the only time they were worn that year. It was the year that the Red River froze. And it made time stand still. I had never witnessed such an extraor-

In reference to the story “Thousands Search…” about the missing boater from late December off Plum Point: There are many things that every boater can learn from this tragic story. Having and executing a robust cold-water safety system can make boating safer and more enjoyable. First, have a competent companion aboard. Another option is to have a buddy system of boats on the water. If not possible, at least use an electronic kill switch. It’s a small fob you have on your person so in case you fall overboard the engine is turned off. I also like to wear a small waterproof

dinary feat of nature in my young life. The mighty river that separated us from the next town over was always in motion. But for a few days that year it was still and quiet. I just love the silence of snow. Science tells me that sound waves don’t travel well through snow, at least the light and fluffy kind. Wet and heavy snow doesn’t absorb sound quite as well. Research has found that a few inches of snow absorbs about 60 percent of the sound around it. I certainly appreciate that benefit. Snow also changes my perspective. The way it covers everything—my yard goes from being unsightly to perfect in a matter of hours and an inch or four of wintry precipitation. It amounts to a mood makeover for me. So I am sad to see it melt away, leaving behind its ugly cousin, black ice, taunting my every step down the front stairs of my house. Love it or loathe it, it’s full-on winter now. This week we bring you some ideas on how best to enjoy it, outdoors or in. Let me know what you think. Email editor@bayweekly.com. p —KATHY KNOTTS, MANAGING EDITOR

VFH radio while out in the winter and spring. It’s a good backup to have. Third, at the very least wear a PFD. Shock can hit any person and make swimming short distances impossible. Even better—wear a float coat. They have floatation as well as thermal capabilities. In the 40-degree water, a person will die in an hour. Having some clothing designed to help you extend that time, can help save your life. Last, have a set of dry warm cloths aboard and a space blanket. All of these things add up to help you stay safe and fish the winter and spring safely. Thank you for your time and I hope this can help boaters. —THOMAS GUARINO

TRACTOR-TRAILER JACKKNIFES ON ICY BAY BRIDGE Hair-raising moment caught on traffic camera BY CHERYL COSTELLO

T

he ending is a happy one, but the video will make you hold your breath. A tractor-trailer, jackknifed on the Bay Bridge, slides dangerously close to another tractor-trailer occupying the left lane. Just in the nick of time, the jackknifed truck straightens out into the right lane and slides directly past the other truck with no collision. The near-miss took place Monday, Jan. 3, when fast-falling snow made for dangerous road conditions and stranded drivers throughout the Chesapeake region. According to the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA), which maintains

the Bay Bridge, MDTA police officers responded to 21 crashes and 66 disabled vehicles across Maryland that day. The tractor-trailer incident on the bridge almost became one of those statistics. It was captured on one of the state transportation authority’s traffic cameras and posted to the social media site Reddit. “What I believe he did was, he didn’t hit the brakes. He hit the gas and the truck straightened out,” speculates Steven Eskew, who is owner and operator of a shuttle service across the Bay Bridge. Some members of the Bay-region population feel uneasy driving over the Bay Bridge between Anne Arundel and

Queen Anne’s counties—in bad weather or not. Kent Island Express, Eskew’s service, provides drivers to get behind the wheel of your own car to take you across the eastbound or westbound span. They cater to those who have a fear of crossing the bridge. “We have grown men that will sit on the passenger floor of their own car and not even look out,” Eskew tells Bay Bulletin. The company even helps tractor-trailer drivers cross. “Everybody thinks it’s all about the height, but for some people it’s not. We have people that don’t like the bridge because it turns,” Eskew says. Others are fine with one span over the other because the walls are different—on the westbound side, you can see through the

UMCES BAY PLASTIC POLLUTION STUDY TO USE DRONES, INFRARED BY MEG WALBURN VIVIANO

P

lastic pollution in the ocean is a problem that’s gotten increasing attention in recent years. But smaller plastics in smaller waterways get a little less exposure–and in the Bay watershed, the threat is just as real. The University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES) just began a two-year study to understand how plastic moves through tributaries and coastal areas to the ocean. The research project in the Choptank River watershed will “lay the foundation for plastic research in the Chesapeake Bay,” UMCES says. Funded by NOAA’s Marine Debris Program, the project will track how microplastics move through the Choptank rivershed on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. It will look at what A new study focuses on microplastics in the Choptank watershed. kind of plastics are in the waterway, and how Photo: UMCES. marsh wetlands and underwater grasses impact their flow. Researchers want to know where But few studies have focused on coastal wetlands these barely-visible plastic particles end up during like underwater grasses or marshes. “A lot of attention is paid to the giant garbage patch in different seasons through the year. And the answers to these questions could actually the Pacific Ocean, but those plastics came from somehelp the larger ocean plastics problem, too. Eye-pop- where. We have to understand where they are coming ping studies find that up to 95 percent of waste on from and what happens to them before they get to the the shoreline, water surface, and sea floor is plastic. ocean,” said Associate Professor Jamie Pierson. “How

barriers. Other folks don’t like the crest, which blocks their view of the other side. Linda, a Bay Bridge commuter, calls the Kent Island Express most days of the work week. “I have anxiety of this stupid bridge. I call it a ‘stupid bridge’ because it’s too high. If they were to lower the bridge, I could drive over it.” She’s been using the service for about eight months—since she got pulled over for speeding. “They thought I was under the influence. They got me out and said, ‘Oh she’s fine, she’s just got anxiety,’ duh. And then they told me about this service.” Kent Island Express drivers take the wheel on one side of the bridge, get out on the other side, and customers return to their own driver’s seat and go on their way. The driver service just gets them over the “speed bump” that is the Bay Bridge—especially after seeing an incident like that heart-stopping swerve by the jackknifed tractor-trailer.

microplastics transit through a system like the Choptank and its features—marshes, underwater grasses, wetlands—might affect transport from source to open water.” Microplastics are defined as pieces of plastic debris less than 5 millimeters in size, or smaller than a pencil eraser. Because they’re so small, the particles can enter the food chain by being ingested by the smallest organisms at the bottom of the food chain, possibly carrying upwards to the top of the food chain. In addition to gathering information about microplastics’ travel, the project will determine which factors and strategies could help reduce marine debris in rivers the most. Extensive samples of six different kinds of plastic debris will be collected. Different types of plastic degrade differently and have different densities. Researchers will use a shortwave infrared radiation microscope, along with a drone that can scope out larger plastic debris in the watershed from above. With a a special camera, it can identify different types of plastic, from plastic bags to water bottles. “Potentially, we’ll be able to make the connection between bigger pieces of plastic in a marsh that break down, and the pieces feeding into the river system leading to microplastics in the water. We’re hoping to figure out if different types of debris get moved in different ways,” said Pierson. January 13 - January 20, 2022 • BAY WEEKLY • 3

THIS STORY HAS TEETH Megalodon jaws rebuilt at Calvert Marine Museum BY CHERYL COSTELLO

T

he Calvert Marine Museum in Solomons has lots of fascinating exhibits, but if there is one thing they’re known for, it’s the giant, prehistoric shark jaws they have on display. Well, that jaw has been dismantled and the megalodon it belongs to is getting a new set of chompers. With a series of new discoveries made about shark teeth, the jaw is being

upgraded with more historically accurate replicas than the existing set. Bay Bulletin got to see this unusual project close up—and so can you. Imagine climbing into the jaw of a shark. “I’m going to be an oral surgeon,” quips exhibits technician Clarence “Shoe” Schumaker. At least he won’t become a shark snack—it’s only a replica of a megalodon that went extinct around 3.5 million years ago. New evidence in the fossil record has prompted a new set of teeth for these jaws. “I’m going to remove all the teeth— the ones that will come out—with just some pressure,” Schumaker explains.

The jaw came down last week and was moved into a lab at the museum. We watched as the teeth were plucked out. “I wish an extraction of my tooth went that quick,” says the technician. A meg’s set of teeth is nothing like ours. There are 230 teeth in five rows that will be replaced. Dr. Victor Perez, Assistant Curator of Paleontology, explains how shark teeth work. “In megalodon, we think that their first row of teeth would have consisted of 46 teeth and likely would have had 4 to 5 rows of teeth. So sharks, they’re constantly developing and replacing their teeth throughout their life. Anytime you look at a modern shark jaw, if you look at it

Momma Rain Brings Vibrant Social Commentary to MC3 BY SUSAN NOLAN

U

pon entering the Maryland Cultural & Conference Center (MC3), vibrant colors and cherub-like faces stare back at you from canvases. It’s easy to describe Maria Buszinski’s work as “cheerful” or “whimsical.” After a moment’s contemplation, however, you see her subject matter is grittier, politically and socially relevant. In her first solo exhibition, the artist known as Momma Rain takes on the topics of bigotry, racism and violence in modern-day America with pieces that pay homage to the Lafayette Square protestors and George Floyd in a show entitled “This Land is Made for You and Me?” “The bright colors are me, but we are living in some dark times,” she says. Momma Rain draws from her own experiences as a first generation Filipino-American. She immigrated to the

the political climate has me asking, ‘Do I belong here?’” she says. “That’s why I’ve titled this show ‘This Land Is Made for You and Me?’ with a question-mark.”

from the inside, you’ll see these replacement rows of teeth basically forming like a conveyor belt,” Perez says. Back in 1987, a collector found 95 teeth from one shark all together in Polk County, Fla. The findings weren’t published until last year. Perez says that while one tooth doesn’t give great context, the fossil evidence of 95 teeth together was a significant opportunity. “It’s like reconstructing the puzzle and actually having the pieces to put it together.” Calvert Marine Museum’s historians are eager to update the facts they know about megalodon, just like a good dentist aligns our teeth. “We are a scientific institution, so what we convey to the public should represent what we know based on scientific evidence. And for megalodon, the most scientific evidence we have in the fossil record is from their teeth,” says Perez. The published findings confirm the museum’s model matches the actual size of the jaw quite closely. The replica is 37.5 feet long. Calvert Marine Museum is using the information uncovered to refine its own megalodon’s teeth. “If you look at our old model and try to look at the cutting edge, you see that the serrations are very faint or absent entirely. So you can’t really see that fine detail on the older model. On our new model you can see these fine, high-detailed serrations on the cutting edge of the tooth.” Visitors to the museum can see this unusual dental work up close by visiting the prep lab in the museum, where exhibit techs will be working on the project Mondays through Thursdays through mid-February. There’s also a shark exhibit you can sink your teeth into while you’re there, comparing fossils to modern-day sharks.

Her husband, engineer Bill Buszinski, is her supportive collaborator on two multimedia pieces: a bright orange sculpture containing a three-part diorama, Candy Coup Shadow Boxes, and a paper mobile titled The Chandelier. Both pieces are inspired by the events of January 6, 2021. Husband Bill says his wife has always been an artist but only recently began pursuing her passion full-time and professionally. Previously, she ran a restaurant and raised son Jaden, now a freshman at Berklee College of Music in Boston. In 2020, she posted a picture of one of her paintings online. It sold and a new career was born. Momma Rain’s personal favorite painting is a portrait of a young Filipino girl, simply titled “Girl”, but she is also fond of a three-piece series titled “Under the Olive Tree”, featuring children of various ethnicities. “That’s where the hope is. In the future,” she says. The exhibition will be at the Maryland Cultural & Conference Center (MC3) in Annapolis through Feb. 5. The public is invited to an artist’s reception Jan. 28, 6-8 pm, RSVP at mc3annapolis.org.

Hunting Down Hunger BY MOLLY WEEKS CRUMBLEY

F

ood insecurity is a serious problem for many members of the Chesapeake Bay community. While the area’s food banks work tirelessly to provide for those in need, they have many obstacles to overcome, among them the rising cost of meat during the COVID-19 pandemic. To help alleviate this problem, Anne Arundel County is currently in its second year of Hunt Down Hunger, a creative initiative formed “to help provide a greater diversity of products available to those in need of food assistance.”. Hunt Down Hunger is a partnership between the Anne Arundel County Food Bank and the Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation, which encourages hunters to help curb the deer overpopulation and to lend a hand to local families in need by donating deer to the food banks. Deer meat—venison—is a high protein food source that can be prepared many ways. According to Food Bank Marketing & Communications Manager Melanie Kincaid, last year’s Hunt Down Hunger program was able to successfully increase the supply of meat available to families in need thanks to the effort of 151 hunters. “In total, 255 deer were harvested and 5,727 pounds of venison meat were donated to the Anne Arundel County Food Bank last year,” said Kincaid. Food Bank CEO Leah Paley confirms this, adding that their partner pantries “continue to experience a high demand for food assistance; they served 90 percent more Anne Arundel County residents between July-October 2021 versus two years ago (pre-pandemic) during the same period.” In the 2021 fiscal year, the food bank estimates that they were able to provide 5.8 million pounds of food to their member agencies, feeding about 62,500 county residents each month. Hunt Down Hunger is able to take donations until the close of the initiative on Feb. 3, and hunters can take their deer directly to Harwood Butcher (4531 S. Pollinghouse Road, Harwood) or Hitchcock Taxidermy (8261 New Cut Road, Severn). AAEDC is paying all processing fees, and they remind participants to follow all proper hunting laws and regulations. “If you are not a hunter, there are many ways to help fight hunger in Anne Arundel County by supporting the Anne Arundel County Food Bank,” adds Kincaid. Outside of Anne Arundel County, hunters are able to make similar deer donations through the national Farmers & Hunters Feeding the Hungry initiative, which is endorsed by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (fhfh.org).

T

he South County Senior Activity Center in Edgewater is getting a muchneeded makeover. On Jan. 6, Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman and officials from the Department of Aging and Disabilities broke ground on a new construction project that aims to improve the existing facility. Updated restrooms, renovated office space and reception area, and a new fitness room are all part of the $2,457,500 construction package. Built in 1991 at 27 Stepney Lane, the center serves over 6,800 citizens over the age of 55. Daily lunches, bus trips and exercise classes are just a few of the center’s popular offerings. “Expanding opportunities to enhance the health and wellness of older adults in southern Anne Arundel County is long overdue,” said Pittman. With improvements expected to take six to eight months, the center has temporarily relocated to 3158 Braverton Street in South River Colony, less than a mile from its permanent facility. According to Center Director Suzie Antkowiak, the center will continue to operate without disrupting services. “We are still serving hot lunches Mon-

Anne Arundel Community College is still providing us with instructors,” says Antkowiak. Many of the courses scheduled to begin in January will run through

March. They include a variety of art and fitness classes, as well as scholastic enrichment programs, such as Beginning Spanish, Creative Writing and Irish Poets. While classes and programs may require a small fee, membership to the center is free and meals are free to members over 60. Jerry Aisquith has been going to the South County Senior Activity Center three days a week for 17 years. In addition to socializing with the other members, Aisquith also volunteers. “I help with whatever needs doing. Taking care of the flowers, filing, helping with lunch. I’m happy to do it. This is a nice place to be.” Antkowiak recognizes that registering for a class or showing up for lunch can be intimidating for many of the people the center serves. She and her staff are available to answer questions and assist as needed. She describes the center’s many regular patrons as “friendly and eager to welcome newcomers.” For those who need an extra nudge, Antkowiak says, “I always recommend a family member come with them the first couple of times. That way they can get comfortable with us and make some friends before being left on their own.” Transportation can also be arranged through the County Office of Transportation.

ape St. Claire is forging ahead this month on two long-awaited projects to help alleviate beach erosion, stop water from pooling in streets, and provide habitat for wildlife. “We’re interested in restoring our beaches, creating a living shoreline, and improving the watershed,” said Beau Breeden, Beaches and Parks Chair for Cape St. Claire Improvement

Association (CSCIA). Cape St. Claire, located on the shores of the Magothy River in Anne Arundel County, is home to over 8,000 residents and 2,300 homes. “It’s one of the largest waterfront communities in Anne Arundel County,” said Breeden. Eight years ago, the CSCIA began working on a plan to protect the area from sea level rise and the continuing erosion of its beaches. The resulting restoration project is a partnership with the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, Biohabitats Inc., and Shoreline Design. The main sites targeted for the proj-

ect are at the main beach and the Lake Claire area. The project calls for the creation of a 970-foot living shoreline and 8,000 square feet of tidal wetland on the shores of the Magothy. CSCIA committed $854,500; Anne Arundel County and the Chesapeake Bay Trust $298,000; the State of Maryland committed $525,000, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services offered two grants at $150,000. “One of the most unique aspects of this project is the long-term dedication of members of the community, partners, and elected officials representing the residents of Cape St. Claire,” stated an article from the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay. The first phase of construction at the main beach work began in March with the installation of two headland breakwaters 150 feet offshore to slow down the erosion. Breeden said strong uninterrupted winds roll down the Bay over 33 miles without any land or structures before hitting the community beach. The headland breakwaters will control the impact of the waves. They’ve also installed 7,000 plants in the living shoreline to help fight the beach erosion. With support from the Little Magothy River Association, a co-beneficial dredge at the end of the Little Magothy took sand and replaced it above the main high water line at the beach and re-graded it. Reusing the sand instead of it being shipped away is similar to what Ocean City crews do every year for re-establishing recreational beach areas, Breeden said. The other site is focused on improving habitat for fish and aquatic life. At Lake Claire, crews are setting out 40 oyster reef balls—concrete structures that oysters attach and grow on. They are also adding inverted root wads that provide woody debris, creating feeding and shade zones for fish. The root wads come from uprooted trees left near the 4-acre pond. They also provide stabiliztion to the banks and slopes. Although the beach today is not what it used to be long ago, science, technology and innovative ideas are repairing the environmental damages here, Breeden says. “Mother Nature always wins and you have to continually use best practices to protect and restore the watershed,” he added. p

HE EXCITEMENT of the holiday season has come and gone. For many, the joy and enthusiasm of the winter season may have departed with it. For those who are not fans of cold weather and snowy forecasts, this may seem like the longest stretch of the year while we wait for the arrival of spring, but there are still plenty of opportunities for entertainment both indoors and out this January.

BUNDLE UP FOR OUTDOOR FUN

T

he Great Outdoors offers a yearround playground of endless opportunity. Bundle up and enjoy the crisp cool air, the sights and sounds of nature, and unique ways to spend an afternoon. While local hiking trails and nature centers are often praised for the blossoms of spring and the vibrancy of fall foliage, the beauty of winter should not be overlooked. If you are looking for unique trails or hikes consider checking out 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Baltimore by Allison Sturm. “Take in the beautiful vistas of Chesapeake Bay. Explore the serpentine barrens of old American Indian hunting grounds and abandoned chrome mines,” Sturm writes. Historic London Town & Gardens in Edgewater is a year-round treasure trove of sightseeing and historical significance. Deputy Director Lauren Silberman says there is still plenty to do and see at the site in winter. Mark the weekend of Jan. 21-22 for a chance to engage with living history interpret-

ers who bring the colonial port town to life. Silberman also says that the gardens are teeming with life even in the winter months. The gardens are filled with winter blooms, some of which are a scientific wonder and success story. “After several harsh winters ravaged the camellia collections at the National Arboretum in the 1970s, Dr. William Ackerman began experimenting with developing cold-hardy camellia hybrids,” says Silberman. “London Town’s gardens became one of the host sites for these tests. The experiments were a success and now, over 40 years later, you can still enjoy camellias blooming throughout the winter.” In addition to the 19 miles of trails offered at scenic Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary in Lothian, there are a variety of winter events on the schedule including guided tours and presentations such as Magnificent Marsh Mammals. Discover what mammals inhabit the marshes at Jug Bay on an evening hike through the woods and along the edge of the marsh. Chuck Hatcher, Jug Bay’s resident expert on otters, leads you on your exploration. (Jan 22, 3-5pm, RSVP: jugbay.org). Lighthouse tours may seem like another warm-weather activity, but vis-

Guests can join visiting artist, Sarah Matthews, and learn how to create stamps to design and print uplifting posters to hang in the community. The Art Center also has a new exhibit by Matthews described as “a combination of artists’ books and prints which document Sarah’s journey through depression, anger, hope, peace, and love. Amid a global pandemic, racial injustices, and social isolation, Sarah was able to find her artistic voice…to express her thoughts and feelings.”

or those who are looking for something a bit more high caliber, consider checking out the area’s paintball and zip-lining opportunities. Luke Glass is the general manager for Central Avenue Paintball Park in Bowie (centralavenuepaintballpark.com). “Paintball is a year-round sport,” says Glass. “In the wintertime, it’s usually better for players due to them being layered with more clothing.” He says the sport is suitable for any person ages 6 and up. For younger players, he suggests utilizing low-impact paintball options which sting less than a traditional paintball, which is typically recommended for those over the age of 8. “We have couples come in all the time as a date. There are tables in the park so they usually bring a lunch and spend the day at the park having fun playing paintball.” A 30-minute drive from Annapolis, guests can engage in a treetop adventure at Terrapin Adventures Outdoor Adventure Park in Savage. The park offers activities for individuals ages 5 to 85 years old. They do require that

f the lure of the outdoors in winter just does not appeal to you, there are plenty of indoor activities to enjoy as well. Try your hand at axe throwing. The Axe House of Annapolis-Severna Park promises fun and excitement for the entire family (axehouseannapolis.com). While walk-ins are accepted, they do encourage visitors to pre-register online to ensure availability. They offer onsite training prior to each session, and you can choose to throw axes, knives, or throwing stars. If you desire to engage in artistic expression, consider visiting ArtFarm (artfarmannapolis.com) or Faith’s Palette (faithspaletteartstudio.com) in Annapolis. “We have amazing kid and teen classes coming up in both traditional and digital arts. We are excited about our graphic design and 3D sculpture classes. We have a number of sketch nights and weekend workshops coming up as well,” says Darin Gilliam, co-founder of ArtFarm. Kimberly Bryson with Faith’s Palette Art Studio encourages people to come check out their unique 3,200-square-foot studio space designed to spark creativity.

“We offer painting, pottery, art classes, a weekly Teen Art Group, Wine & Paint Nights, and more,” she says. For the indoor adventurer, Escape Rooms may be the perfect activity for your family. Jason Cherry is the owner of Mission Escape Rooms in Annapolis (missionescaperooms.com). While many people are still being COVID conscious especially with the spike in omicron cases, Cherry says that safety is their top priority. “All escape rooms are CDC-compliant. We are booking private experiences only, meaning it is just you and the group you booked with.” Rooms are suitable for ages 6 and up and Cherry says they have had the pleasure of seeing three to four generation families enjoy the escape room experience together. “It is a great activity for all, grandchildren and grandparents included.” “It is like a real-life game of Clue,” Cherry adds. “And if you enjoy solving puzzles with your friends and family then escape rooms are for you.” He says no matter if you have done a room before, the concept never loses excitement as they are constantly building new rooms. Make winter 2022 the time you try something exciting with your friends and family. Get out, stay safe and have fun! p

CREATURE FEATURE

STORY AND PHOTO BY WAYNE BIERBAUM

A Wild Looking Duck

S

wimming alongside the rock jetty at Barnegat Inlet, New Jersey, a duck nervously looked from side to side making the long dark feathers poking up from the top of his head flop from side to side. The bird appeared quite comical as the nervous motion quickened, but then it suddenly dove and disappeared. The bird

reappeared about 20 yards away with a fish. It dove over and over and was frequently successful at catching small sculpin and blennies. Each time it surfaced, it would shake the water off its head and look in all directions before diving again. Since the fish it caught are bottom dwellers, the bird must have dove at least 10 feet against a strong current to catch them. When it finally flew off, it took a long running start on the water’s surface. The bird was a red-breasted merganser. Their scientific name is Mergus

serrator, which describes the sharp serrations in their bill that are used to hold onto slippery fish. Their legs are set far back on their bodies, like a loon. That makes them excellent at diving but very awkward at walking and needing a running start to fly. The males have a dark green head with a white ring on the neck. The females have a brown head and body with very little white details except on the mid-wing. Both sexes have long pointed reddish serrated beaks and

long feathers that stick straight up from their heads. Their appearance gives them the nicknames of sawbill and shag-head. They fly laid out straight like an arrow with their pointy beaks out front, giving them another nickname: lawn dart. Cornell Lab of Ornithology lists the red-breasted merganser as the fastest flyer of all the fish-eating ducks. They also spend their summers the farthest north and migrate the farthest south of other American mergansers. In the summer, they nest and fish along northern Canada’s coastal estuaries and lakes. Merganser couples pair up in the early spring and the female builds a nest in shoreline grasses. She can have up to 12 little ones hatch, which she rears by herself. The mother escorts the young birds away from danger and into areas of water with plentiful food and stays with them through their first migration south. Mergansers are not considered good to eat but because they fly so fast, they are hunted for sport. Hunting is allowed because the ducks are not listed as endangered. However, they are not that commonly seen around the Chesapeake shore. A few red-breasted mergansers will occasionally be found around North Beach, Thomas Point and Sandy Point. They are more commonly seen around the Ocean City inlet. Keep a look out for them, as they can show up on almost any body of water, fresh and salt. Their hairstyle gives them away. p

GARDENING FOR HEALTH

STORY AND PHOTO BY MARIA PRICE

Growing Meyer Lemons

G

rowing citrus in Maryland, like Meyer lemons, is great fun and easy. I keep mine outside all summer and then bring it indoors just before frost, usually about mid-October. Then it becomes a houseplant until about April when we don’t have any more frosts and I put it back outside in a sunny spot. Lemons are a familiar food with a high vitamin C content that can help improve resistance to infection from colds and flu. Despite its acid content, once digested, lemon has an alkaline effect within the body, making it useful in rheumatic conditions where acidity is a contributing factor. The volatile oil is antiseptic and antibacterial. The bioflavonoids contained in lemon strengthen the inner lining of blood vessels, veins and capillaries and help prevent the formation of varicose veins. Its ability to strengthen blood vessel walls helps to prevent circulatory disorders and bleeding gums. Lemons are thought to be native to India and were first grown in Europe in the second century A.D. and are now cultivated in Mediterranean and subtropical climates worldwide. The fruit is best harvested in winter when the vitamins C content is at its highest.

Citrus can bear flowers and fruit at the same time. Lemon flowers are sweetly aromatic and perfume the air. My Meyer lemon had fruit on it in the fall and the lemons have grown and I’ve been able to pick them as I’ve needed them over the holidays and still have more to pick. It’s especially nice when the cost of all produce has risen. The lemons keep best on the tree. Meyer lemon juice is very mild without the sourness of regular lemons. I used organic fertilizer so that my lemons are truly organic. I make sure to allow the lemon tree to be completely dry before I water it. The Meyer lemon was found growing as a potted plant near Beijing in 1908 by Frank Meyer, a plant collector for the USDA. It is a hybrid between a lemon and a mandarin. The original Meyer lemon variety was found to carry a virus, so look for Meyer lemon “Improved”, which doesn’t carry the virus. If you feel a tickle in your throat or feel like you’re coming down with a cold, grate a tablespoon of fresh ginger with a teaspoon of thyme and steep with 2 cups of boiling water for five to 10 minutes. Add a tablespoon of honey and the juice of half a lemon. Stay well. p January 13 - January 20, 2022 • BAY WEEKLY • 17


SPORTING LIFE

Be Prepared for Winter Surprises

T

he recent winter storm debacle with Virginia traffic on I-95 should give every highway traveler pause. Thousands stranded in sub-freezing weather for 20 hours or more is a situation inviting untold distress and even calamity, not something one often thinks about these days. Even with phone connections and contact with concerned friends, no one could really get assistance to anyone stranded, save an emergency helicopter evacuation. Virtually no one was prepared for what happened, the weather fronts and temperature plunge happened so quickly.

ASOS PRESENTS

MOON & TIDES

A winter travel bag is something easily prepared and stored in the trunk of your car every autumn and can give great peace of mind anytime you intend on traveling any distance on our highways in possibly inclement weather. Our highway systems are purposely planned through low population density areas and being stranded anywhere in the system means you are going to be quite a distance from any populated areas. One should always have the essentials of survival close at hand. I prefer a medium sized boat bag (24” x 12” x 12”) to hold the necessary

S ATU RD AY

gear. Weatherproof and not too bulky to carry, nor lift, it’s easily stored in the trunk of your car. The items you include are not difficult to assemble, especially if you only do it once a year and not every time there is a weather advisory. Your primary and most critical danger comes from hypothermia while stranded because you may well run out of gas keeping your heater going. Really warm coats are essential. Everyone has a thick, insulated coat or two they don’t use anymore and if you don’t they’re available quite inexpensively in stores dedicated to bargains rather than fashion. I suggest two coats because we often travel with a companion and it would be uncomfortable indeed to have just one on hand. And in the event of being alone in really cold weather, one over your legs would be warmer than just the coat you wear. Roll the coats up tightly and tape them to save space in your bag. A couple of warm, wool stocking caps are needed as well, plus wool or insulated gloves or mittens. Again, fashion is not your aim here. Extra heavy wool socks are also a must—assume you won’t have unlimited access to your car’s heater. Your feet will get coldest first, plan on wearing more than one pair. Buy them extra large so you can pull them over your shoes if you wish. Next comes the essential comestibles

and the first of those is water. An adult can last three weeks without food but physical distress begins within just a day without water and death after three. Cold weather minimizes but doesn’t eliminate our need for hydration, Two quarts should suffice for 24 hours or so. An extra gallon jug in the trunk won’t hurt, especially if your car starts to overheat and you need to add to your coolant. Breakfast bars, protein bars, nut bars and the like last for long periods, easily over a winter, and will provide adequate nutrition. A three or four day supply of prescription meds and a portable radio with extra batteries can be a comfort as can an adequate supply of chocolate. In extreme situations, remember you will not be able to count on your automobile’s amenities once you run out of gas. Cars get cold, fast. Emergency, foil-lined blankets are wise and take up little room—and don’t forget a roll of toilet paper. Always have a phone charger on hand. Highway flares are always a good idea to keep in your trunk. It you happen to have an extreme emergency in a line of a thousand autos and trucks, being able to point yourself out in the crowd can be a distinct advantage. Being prepared is often the difference between an interesting experience and a disaster. The world is not always safe. Stay warm out there. p

The Tender Bar

One great performance does not a movie make AVAIL ABLE ON AMAZON PRIME

A

fter being evicted from their apartment, young JR (Daniel Ranieri in his feature debut) and his mother, (Lily Rabe: American Horror Story) are forced to move back into the ramshackle family home on Staten Island. The home is packed to the rafters with grandparents, an aunt and her children. Though his mom is depressed at their lot in life, JR is thrilled. He loves being around so much family after his father abandoned him. JR finds a special kinship with his uncle Charlie (Ben Affleck: The Last Duel), a bartender who decides it’s up to him to teach JR

“the masculine sciences”. Thus begins JR’s education, bellying up to a bar to learn how to treat a lady and talk about sports from Charlie and the barflies. Charlie also encourages JR to explore the world of books. A voracious reader, JR soon excels in school. His mom has ambitions for an Ivy League education, but JR just hopes to find a meaningful relationship with his horrendous father. As he stumbles toward manhood, JR finds he can rely upon family, even when the rest of the world lets you down. Based on the memoir of Pulitzer-winning writer J.R. Moehringer, The Tender Bar, rather ironically, has a major story problem. Though theoretically the life story of Moehringer, the movie only works when it features JR’s uncle. Affleck shines as a loveable loser, who

gives out pretty good advice for someone who is often seen sleeping on the sofa surrounded by beer cans. Charlie is one of those scruffy philosophers who hangs out at local watering holes, occasionally offering incisive advice and wry observations. Affleck excels at playing verbose, sarcastic underachievers and any time Charlie is on the screen the movie comes to life. More importantly, Affleck has a genuinely brilliant bond with Ranieri, bringing out the best in the young actor. Director George Clooney (The Midnight Sun) has a spotty history when helming a film. In this movie he leans too far into the sentimental, hitting every coming-of-age cliché he could think of—from the awful absentee father to the heartbreak of first love. Whenever a movie starts off with a

block of narration, it’s usually a bad sign. And Clooney leans hard into the idea of an omniscient voice explaining to viewers what’s happening. The film gives very little care in developing most of the other characters. Rabe is just in the background to make concerned faces and the grandmother wanders through the background of each scene putting bacon on plates and washing dishes. The result is narration that discusses the importance of family in a movie that doesn’t give mom or grandma actual names. The film also suffers when Ranieri is replaced by Tye Sheridan (The Card Counter) as an older JR. Sheridan, whose blonde hair and blue eyes are comically different from Ranieri’s dark eyes and hair, has little to do but mope. Sheridan is saddled with the thankless job of whining through every scene in a form of stalled adolescence. There’s also no real development to JR (other than aging)—he starts a precocious boy and ends a precocious man. It’s this lack of development that makes JR’s scenes without Charlie so dull. While Clooney does craft a pile of cliches, The Tender Bar is worth a peek for Affleck’s saloon sage. If you’re bored on a rainy Sunday, this is the perfect film. If you’d like some insight into how JR went from an overcrowded home in Staten Island to an in-demand feature writer, the book is a better bet. Fair Biopic * R * 106 mins.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD

BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEEL SYNDICATION

Chutzpah

On Dec. 6, Laura Oglesby, 48, pleaded guilty to one count of intentionally providing false information to the Social Security Administration, The New York Times reported. Her story is much more complicated than that one charge. In 2016, Oglesby used her estranged daughter’s identity to create another life for herself as Lauren Hays, a 22-year-old college student in Mountain View, Missouri. She obtained a Social Security card and driver’s license, then racked up more than $25,000 in debt with student loans and other expenses. She also worked at Southwest Baptist University and rented a room from Wendy and Avery Parker. “Everybody believed it,” said Mountain View Police Chief Jamie Perkins. “She even had boyfriends that believed that she was that age: 22 years old.” Oglesby may face up to five years in prison and will have to pay restitution to her daughter and SBU.

My Kingdom for an Editor

Thankfully, a sign on Interstate 95 in Delaware directing drivers to a Wilmington exit was only temporary, but that didn’t stop commuters from noticing it. The Associated Press reported that the sign was missing an “A” in the avenue’s name (“Delware”); transportation officials said it was made in a hurry in case the permanent sign didn’t arrive in time for the opening of the exit, which had been under construction. There’s always time for correct spelling, kids.

The Way the World Works

Those large inflatable Christmas decorations may fill the hearts of children with holiday cheer, but one young ursid saw a sparring partner and went on the attack in Monrovia, California, on Dec. 8. Donna Hargett captured video of a bear cub wrestling with her neighbor’s inflatable reindeer as the mama bear looked on, United Press International reported. “I looked up and there it was, jumping on the reindeer,” Hargett said. “We see these two around all the time. They’re trouble,” she said. In fact, Hargett said they once broke into her home and left paw prints on the bed. No word on Rudolph’s condition.

Least Competent Criminal Justice System

Lauras Matiusovas, 30, was suddenly (and mistakenly) released from the Pentonville Prison in North London on Nov. 26 after serving only 48 hours of a four-year sentence. After he called the probation officer, who told him that everything was in order, Matiusovas did what any grateful con would do: He embarked on a 10-day boozing binge with his friends. “It’s mad,” one buddy said, according to the Daily Star. “He could have jumped on a flight and left the U.K. Instead, he chilled with us and had a great time.” But it all came to an end on Dec. 6, when he was hauled back to his cell. The Ministry of Justice commented: “Releases in error are incredibly rare, but we take them extremely seriously.”

Not Your Father’s Buick

Sure, the Greatest Generation may be coasting down the road at 32 mph in their Le Sabres, much to other drivers’ frustration, but Buicks weren’t always old-man cars. In fact, car collector Anthony Saia sold a 1987 Buick GNX on eBay on Dec. 11 for $249,999, Fox News reported. The GNX, part of a limited edition of 547 built for only one year, was produced by Buick along with McLaren Engines and ASC Inc. It was the second-fastest 0-to-60 mph car of its day (behind the Porsche 911 Turbo), and others have sold for similar amounts. Saia’s car had 426 miles on it.

Hasan Riza Gunay, known as Turkey’s one and only stress coach, has a unique method for easing his clients’ angst: He lets them hit him (and doesn’t hit back), Oddity Central reported. After a decade in the business, though, Gunay is ready to train someone to take his place. “Most of my clients suffer from depression or panic attacks,” he said. “I would like to train other potentially interested people ... and hand over my gloves to the new generation.” Gunay said around 70% of his clients are women whose strength is equivalent to that of boys 12 to 14 years old, so he doesn’t worry about getting hurt. And he wears protective gear, sometimes accompanied by a photo of the person the client is unhappy with.

Bright Idea

Mark Rogers, 38, Joseph Way, 36, and Tashara Levans, 37, each pleaded guilty on Dec. 14 to one count of kidnapping a federal employee, which could get them nine years to life in federal prison, The Washington Post reported. It all started on Nov. 16, 2019, in Rochester, New York, when the three were anxiously awaiting a postal delivery of $70,000 worth of cocaine. The mail carrier delivered several other packages to the home that day, but as she stepped off the porch, the trio accused her of stealing the drug package. They ransacked her mail truck, “then told her she was coming with them,” prosecutor Robert Marangola said during a hearing. In Levans’ SUV, they told the postal employee that they were going to kill her, her children and her mother. They searched her personal vehicle, then continued driving her around while threatening her. But eventually they stopped and got out to talk. That’s when the mail carrier used her smartwatch to text her supervisor and the Rochester Police Department. As the suspects finally dropped her off at her car, police swarmed the SUV and arrested them. Sentencing is scheduled for April.

Yikes!

Rob and Marcela Wild of Robertson, South Africa, figured there might be a mouse in their newly decorated Christmas tree when their cats started watching it intently on Dec. 10. Instead,

they found one of the most venomous snakes in Africa, a boomslang, CNN reported. The Wilds called on snake catcher Gerrie Heyns, who used “snake tongs” to put it on the floor. “Once I had it under control, the family came right up to see the snake,” Heyns said. “A scary moment turned into an exciting moment for the children.” Heyns released the female snake, about 4 1/2 feet long, back into the wild a couple of days later.

A Walk on the Wild Side

A couple in Sherbrooke, Quebec, were each fined $1,500 on Jan. 9, when police spotted the pair walking outside about an hour after the city’s 8 p.m. curfew, with the husband wearing a leash, CTV News reported. The city’s COVID-19 curfew allows for dog-walking after 8 p.m., but police rejected the couple’s claim they were following the rules. It was the first weekend under new province-wide restrictions imposed by Premier Francois Legault, and officers throughout Quebec handed out more than 750 tickets.

Awwwwww

Russell Jones of London couldn’t figure out why his dog, Billy, was favoring one of his front paws while walking. He took the pet to the veterinarian to have X-rays, United Press International reported, but the vet found nothing wrong. Jones, however, had recently broken his own ankle and was wearing a cast and limping. At the $400 vet visit, the doctor suggested that Billy was simply imitating his owner. Man’s best friend, indeed.

The Aristocrats

Rapper Lil Uzi Vert, whose real name is Symere Woods, revealed on Instagram in early February that he has had a $24 million 10-carat pink diamond implanted in his forehead, reported Rolling Stone. According to Simon Babaev, spokesman for the New York-based jeweler Eliantte & Co. that implanted the stone, Uzi fell in love with the marquise-shaped diamond when he saw it in 2017 and has been making payments on it as he determined what he wanted to do with it. “We didn’t think he was serious about it,” said Babaev, but as it became clear that he was, “we engineered a specific mounting that clips and locks in place. There’s a whole mechanism involved.” p Send your weird news items with subject line WEIRD NEWS to WeirdNewsTips@amuniversal.com.

Fritz Turner, 23, returned to his hometown of Newport, Washington, to find the city’s Christmas tree “embarrassing.” The scant trimming comprised a series of vertical rope lights dangling from the top of the tree down the sides, The News Tribune reported. “This is not gonna do,” he said. So he set up a GoFundMe page on Dec. 2, hoping to raise $5,000 for better lights and more decorations. “We can do better. Even Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree looked better than this sad spruce,” he wrote. The page raised more than $2,700 for the lights, and the local utility company hung them on the tree. And middle- and high school students donated handmade ornaments for it. For the first time in many years, the chamber of commerce organized a tree-lighting ceremony on Dec. 11. Turner said he’s been “inspired” by the support. “Together, we’re really powerful.”

Blind was not originally meant as a word for sightless, but rather for being ‘enveloped in darkness,’ ‘confused,’ and ‘lacking in understanding.’ As a verb, to blind someone was to ‘cover something up’ to ‘obscure’ and ‘deceive.’ And if you’ve ever been on a blind-date you know exactly what this is like, when your date seems in the dark, completely confused, and can’t understand why you feel so deceived by whomever arranged the date for covering-up and obscuring the fact their efforts were blatantly shortsighted.
