What’s On Your Summer Bucket List? M

uch like winter holidays, summer sneaks up on me. It’s there, on the calendar, every year, but yet, when Memorial Day weekend arrives, I’m thrown for a loop. I’m a great planner but an even better procrastinator, it turns out. I can dream up all sorts of excursions and agendas, but putting them into action takes a bit more than I seem to be able to muster up. Enter the annual CBM Bay Weekly Summer Fun Guide (page 10). While this feature has morphed multiple times over the decades, the purpose remains true. Showcase some of the good times to be had in Chesapeake Country. It’s also helpful to see the breadth and diversity of all that is happening in our region from June to August. Hopefully you will copy some of these events into your calendars. When my boys were young, we would create a Summer Bucket List full of items they wanted to do over

their summer breaks. They usually began with lofty ambitions of traveling somewhere far away but their pragmatic mother would tell them those plans would have to wait and we would opt for closer-to-home trips. We usually included trips to a swimming pool or watering hole. A canoe float down a lazy river. A visit to a zoo or children’s museum. And ice cream. There was never a list that didn’t include eating ice cream at any given moment. That’s an item they still request when the summer heats up. Another item that we have stayed true to: making it to a baseball game. We always try to get to one minor or major league game each summer (and we’ve already checked this off our list this year). Growing up, summer for me meant trips to the library for the summer reading program and trying to fill in every line on my reading log with a book I read to win a prize.

Library programs and even libraries themselves look very different now. Judy Colbert provides us with a list of all the amazing things you can find at a modern library—sure to beat any boredom your family may encounter (page 13). In summer 2022, I hope to add some new items to our to-do list, like a boat ride to a lighthouse or a night hike at an area park. I may try my hand at catching crabs or fish, or finally muster up the courage to get on a stand-up paddleboard. Summer is full of promise. It’s a blank canvas full of long sunny days, warm weather and the invitation to dive in. Get out there and enjoy it. p Kathy Knotts is managing editor of CBM Bay Weekly.

sites in both the Maryland and Virginia sections of the Bay during the winter, finds the worst total crab abundance in the history of the survey.

The 2022 Baywide Blue Crab Winter Dredge Survey is an annual estimate of the population in the Bay and its tributaries, in which the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) work together. The total abundance of blue crab in the Chesapeake Bay in 2022 was 227 million crabs, the lowest number since the survey began in 1990. The number of juvenile crabs in 2022 was 101 million crabs. That’s slightly higher than the 86 million juvenile crabs estimated last year, but this still marks three years in a row below average. The number of adult male crabs also dropped to a record-low abundance. The number of spawning-age female crabs dropped from 158 million in 2021 to 97 million in 2022. However, they re-

main above the management threshold of 72.5 million crabs, where they have been for the last eight years in a row. What may be going wrong for our prized blue crabs? DNR says, “Blue crab reproduction is naturally variable and it is difficult to identify a singular reason for the recent period of low juvenile abundance.” Because larval blue crabs develop in ocean waters over the continental shelf, oceanic conditions, nursery habitat, and predators can all impact the population’s success. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation has a theory of its own. Senior Regional Ecosystem Scientist Chris Moore says in a statement, “This year’s survey follows two consecutive years of declines in the coverage of underwater grasses, one of

“It is likely that the loss of grasses is contributing to the blue crab’s decline, along with water quality challenges and predation by invasive blue catfish.” —CHRIS MOORE, SENIOR REGIONAL ECOSYSTEM SCIENTIST, CHESAPEAKE BAY FOUNDATION

the most important habitats for blue crabs in the Chesapeake Bay. It is likely that the loss of grasses is contributing to the blue crab’s decline, along with water quality challenges and predation by invasive blue catfish.” Calling the crab downturn “a worrying trend”, Moore says there’s an urgent need to protect adult females to ensure better numbers in the future. He goes on to say, “Fisheries regulators and scientists must work quickly to identify the key ecosystem factors influencing blue crab recruitment and survival.” To that end, the Chesapeake Bay Stock Assessment Committee will provide scientific advice based on the survey results this month. The committee is also planning a workshop for fall 2022 to “explore potential recruitment drivers”. DNR, the Virginia Marine Resources Commission, and the Potomac River Fisheries Commission have maintained harvest of blue crabs at the safe levels determined in the last stock assessment for the last 14 years. Despite those efforts, adult blue crab populations continue to drop. The agencies will work together to consider management measures for the current crabbing season.

he week leading up to Memorial Day weekend is National Safe Boating Week, as many boaters get back on the water for the first time this season. On the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland’s Department of Natural Resources law enforcement officers want you to be prepared for the unexpected. To drive that message home, Bay Bulletin went on patrol with an officer who responded to a dramatic boat explosion in Edgewater this month that—thankfully—had a positive outcome. Entering summer, more boats are underway on the Bay and as Maryland Natural Resources Police (NRP) remind us, it’s typically when accidents peak. We were invited to ride along with NRP Cpl. Chris Neville on his mission of keeping boaters safe. Neville was dispatched earlier this month to a boat fire at Holiday Hill Marina off the Rhode River. “The message is that accidents can happen when you least expect them,” he says. “I’ve never seen anything like that fire.” Neville says the owner of the 37-foot Monterey powerboat with inboard engines took all the precautions, but still couldn’t avoid a mechanical error. “It appeared that the vessel had a fuel leak in the starboard engine and when the gentleman was trying to dock his

boat it stalled out and he put it in neutral,” Neville says. “He hit the blower and when he turned the key there was an initial explosion. And it actually blew the engine cover approximately 40 feet in the air.” The officer says it’s a good reminder that boaters are required to have a fire extinguisher on board. And with inboard engines, the best advice is to ventilate. “Before you go out, you want to run the blower for approximately 5 minutes and every time you get fuel you would run the blower for about 5 minutes just to give all the gas vapors time to clear out of the engine compartments.” Fortunately, the people on board were able to get off safely and were taken to the hospital as a precaution. Police point to a checklist you can follow to make sure you’re legal and safe on board. During our ride with Neville, he stopped a skiff with a group of three fishermen and a child on it. “I’ll just do a safety check real quick,” the officer told them. “I appreciate him [the child] wearing his life jacket.” On a boat less than 21 feet, children under the age of 13 are required to wear life jackets. “Now I just need three life jackets for you, gentlemen,” says Neville. The three anglers had the necessary life jackets on board but didn’t have a throwable device, a requirement for

These boaters didn’t mind being stopped for a safety check, given how dangerous the water can be. Photo: Cheryl Costello boats over 16 feet long. Neville also discovered the emergency flares on board had expired in 2019—a reminder to all boaters to check infrequently used equipment for expiration dates. The anglers drove away with a warning, but boat operator Zac Klein wasn’t upset about it. He thinks it’s important information to have, “because people die on this Bay.” Natural Resources Police say six people died last year in boating accidents, which is a downward trend from years

past. But in each of the six incidents, the victim was not wearing a life jacket. “If you already have your life jacket on, that’s just one less thing you have to think about in an emergency,” says Neville. He says boaters who have control of their safety and know their boat will have more fun on the water. And you can get a safety check, too. Reserve officers will be on hand at Sandy Point State Park every Wednesday through Labor Day doing free safety checks before boaters get underway.

o longer needed as a Naval trainer simulator, a giant C-130 training cockpit has found its final destination as a future interactive exhibit at the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum in St. Mary’s County, Md. The cockpit was retired from service and shipped to the museum on April 10, where it sits covered in white plastic wrap, awaiting exhibition.

flight simulations in the C-130 cockpit. Its parent, the C-130 cargo plane, has been used by the U.S. Air Force, Marines, and Navy since 1960 in “Antarctic support missions, assault transport, aerial tanker, general transport, and many other specialized missions,” says Patuxent (PAX) River Naval Air Museum. The plane’s empty weight comes in at 75,800 pounds and was considered a heavy-duty workhorse for the military. The C-130 can reach a maximum speed of 320 miles per hour. The simulator trainer cockpit comes in at 23 feet high, 27 feet long (including a trailer beneath), and 16 feet wide, dimensions which made for a slow and careful towing operation to bring the cockpit to the Naval Air Museum. The simulation device’s “retirement” came after adjustments to the C-130T program were modernized, and the practice cockpit was no longer needed. Team members of the Tactical Airlift Program, NAVAIR news states, received permission to donate it to the museum after its retirement. Currently it sits beside 25 Navy and Marine Corps aircraft at the museum’s flightline, waiting to be unwrapped and transformed into an interactive exhibit. “We really want people to get up close to it, hands on,” Scott Gray, PAX River Naval Air Museum Executive Director says, “to feel what those pilots feel when they’re in there.” The cockpit is set to exhibit within the next year, staff speculates, with the right amount of fundraising. Gray looks to the cockpit’s next step at the museum in hopes of it serving as a connection between Naval personnel and the public, saying the museum would “love to hear from vets and people who worked in things like this.” “It’s more than a tangible object,” he reminds visitors, “It’s about people, people who conceived the need, people who operated it. About people behind it. People are why we’re here.” PAX River Naval Air Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays 12–5 p.m. Admission is $9 for adults, $4 for children.

You can get involved with the 2022 Bay Paddle to support the Bay at next week’s kickoff party. Photo: Bay Paddle.



n 2020, one guy was crazy enough to attempt to paddle the length of the Chesapeake Bay, north to south, on a standup paddleboard. In 2021, he recruited entire teams of people crazy enough to paddle at least a portion of the Bay on their own paddlecraft. (CBM served as proud media sponsor). And in August 2022, the Bay Paddle will launch again from the upper Bay— this time with two different race length options, all benefitting three valuable Bay-focused organizations. To kick off training season for this year’s race, organizers are throwing a fundraiser party in Annapolis boasting live music, freshly shucked oysters, and prizes. The party will be held Thursday, June 2 at Blackwall Hitch. You can register for the race, mingle with paddling enthusiasts, and support Bay Paddle’s three worthy causes.

Oyster Recovery Partnership (ORP), the original beneficiary of Annapolis paddler Chris Hopkinson’s 2020 journey, has been using its funds to plant oysters in the Bay, cleaning the water and restoring a depleted bivalve population. Chesapeake Conservancy, who came on as a partner and beneficiary in 2021, uses its portion to continue its fight to designate the Chesapeake Bay a national park unit. And for the first time, the Bay Paddle also supports Waterkeepers Chesapeake, a coalition of 17 different waterkeeper organizations from around the Bay who work together to keep rivers and other waterways healthy. Bay Paddle participants get to see these tributaries from water level, underscoring the importance of taking care of our Bay. ORP’s Allison Albert Guercio, an organizer who also participated in last year’s paddle, puts it this way:

s an English colonial settlement, London Town on the scenic South River, is old—dating back to 1683. As a museum, however, Historic London Town is just hitting its stride. With this year marking the 51st anniversary of the founding of site, its future is bright. At Friday night’s Golden Gala, volunteers, staff and supporters turned out in record numbers to pay homage to the organization’s distinguished past while raising money for projects underway and on the horizon. “The Golden Gala is our most suc-

“The best way to learn to appreciate something is to experience it firsthand. Paddling the Bay makes wanting to protect the Bay an intrinsic feeling. You can’t experience the beautiful scenery, wildlife, people and cultures that create the fabric of the Bay without also learning to cherish and want to protect it.” The Bay Paddle will host two races this year to accommodate both expert and recreational paddlers. The full-length, 150-mile race takes place over five days from Rock Hall to Cape Charles, Va. New this year, there is also a 45-mile, two-day option from Rock Hall to Cambridge, for those who aren’t ready to commit to a weeklong race and the required training. Both races kick off August 27. Dozens of people have already signed up for the races, including a returning team of local schoolteachers, multiple kayak clubs, and a Valhalla Sailing Project/Live Water Foundation team. Funds raised from the paddle and fundraising events like next week’s party will be split equally among ORP, Waterkeepers Chesapeake, and Chesapeake Conservancy to support ongoing efforts to protect and preserve the Chesapeake Bay. Tickets for next week’s kickoff event are $35. They include a half-dozen oysters, a complimentary Tito’s cocktail or Pacifica beer (both race sponsors), and a raffle entry that’s made up of gear from REI and Patagonia, music festival tickets, wine, and more. Those already registered to compete in the Bay Paddle come to the party for free. cessful fund-raising event to date,” says Deputy Director Lauren Silberman. She estimates over $55,000 was raised. London Town rose to prominence as a colonial seaport and center of trade in the early 18th century, but then rapidly declined as Annapolis and Baltimore grew. By the end of the American Revolution, few buildings and residents remained. Today the park consists of just a quarter of the original 100-acre town. The county began to work on converting the site into gardens in the 1960s and a decade later the museum was born.

Annapolis Seafood Markets has closed after 40 years in business. Photo: Steve Adams.

Annapolis Seafood Markets Closes Doors BY STEVE ADAMS


ith a complete lack of fanfare, Annapolis Seafood Markets on Forest Drive made the announcement May 15 on its iconic roadside sign, complete with flashing lights and a red crab above it, on which it had announced its daily specials for decades. The message: “THANK YOU FOR 40 WONDERFUL YEARS. GONE FISHING.” Opened in 1978 and operating 363 days a year, the family-owned business was not only a popular go-to for fresh seafood, especially blue crabs and lobsters, but also for a full menu of grilled, fresh, and fried carryout items and platters. At its peak, it distributed to Baltimore and Washington, operated additional locations in both Edgewater and Severna Park (before closing them in 2013 and 2019, respectively), and even managed a food truck. The business made no formal announcement regarding its reason for closing and did not respond to requests for comment from CBM Bay Weekly or questions from a plethora of Facebook commenters who expressed their sadness at hearing the unexpected news. However, a lengthy Facebook post by Brad Kappel, senior vice president at TRR Sotheby’s International Realty and the son of Annapolis Seafood Market founder Bert Kappel, reflected on its long and somewhat unknown history. “The End of an Era... after 44 years, Annapolis Seafood Market just closed its doors,” he writes in part. “Back in 1978, my dad converted a gas station on Forest Drive into a simple produce and shrimp stand. The business grew

LONDON TOWN from page 7

Plan to create a 10-year strategy to further enhance the 23-acre property. Now, midway through a decade of intensive renovations and expansions, Silberman and executive director Rod Cofield stand ready to see the plan to fruition. The historic area includes the William Brown House and reproductions of a carpentry shop and a lower middle-class home called the Lord Mayor’s tenement. “The work on the William Brown House has been one of the biggest accomplishments so far,” says Cofield referring to the massive 18th century brick tavern. Over the past five years, the building has undergone work to

quickly and eventually became Annapolis Seafood Market which proudly offered the freshest seafood in the region. That was the year I was born and I grew up playing at the market before school, often going to school smelling of fish... I worked there for many years and had the time of my life. I am extremely proud of my dad and how successful ASM became … an Annapolis institution.” “My father opened multiple locations and brought fresh seafood to the masses,” stated Kappel, “often working 7 days a week in order to deliver the best service and quality products. He invented ‘AIR CRAB’ which shipped fresh MD crabs anywhere in the country in 24 hours.” While the market did not announce any form of grand “closeout sale,” both in-the-know and happily surprised customers were able to enjoy 50 percent off everything on its final day in business. The owners also posted a banner announcing that the bright blue Annapolis Seafood food truck is for sale, perhaps presenting an opportunity for another business to start or expand. Annapolis Seafood Market spoke to us at the beginning of the pandemic when the seafood industry was taking a hit and had to turn to direct-to-consumer sales to stay afloat (see our story: chesapeakebaymagazine.com/ video-bay-seafood-sellers-shift-todirect-sales-amid-pandemic/). As for what’s next for the high-visibility location, an inside source doesn’t think it will be long before the property changes hands. “People have been knocking on the door for years,” said the property’s manager. But at least one thing’s for sure: the drive up and down Forest Drive, free of a flashing seafood sign, won’t look the same. mitigate water damage and to reinforce attic supports. The electrical system, including HVAC, has been updated. Porches on the south and river sides and the exterior door leading to the tavern room have been repaired. With the physical work to the structure nearly complete, the William Brown House has reopened for tours, and the staff is expanding the interpretation of the site. “We are creating a more inclusive presentation for the historic area,” says Silberman. For decades, Historic London Town has been committed to researching and sharing the story of its colonial residents—enslaved, indentured and free, and by Maryland Day 2023 (March 25), the interpretation will include infor-

Human and canine guests enjoy brunch during Breakfast at Sniffany’s. Photo: Heather Maertens.

Doggy Brunch Raises Thousands for Animal Groups ell-dressed canines (and their humans) donned skirts, pearl necklaces and party hats Sunday for a special brunch fundraiser. The pampered pooches and friends gathered at the Barn at Lyon’s Creek Overlook in Dunkirk to eat and socialize as part of Breakfast at Sniffany’s, an event that benefits four local animal shelters. The fundraiser began in 2014, when Heather Maertens, owner of Maertens Fine Jewelry, hosted a launch party for a collection of dog-themed jewelry and donated a percentage of the sales to the Humane Society of Calvert County. Maertens says the event took off, growing each year as dog lovers came to have a good time and support local shelters through sponsorships, tickets, raffles, and donations. Now known as Breakfast at Sniffany’s, the fundraiser brunch for people and their pooches marked its eighth year this weekend with a sold-out event. “The day consists of a catered brunch, a gourmet doggie treat buffet, a fabulous silent auction filled with local art, jewelry, pottery, gift baskets and trips” said Maertens. Sniffany’s provides a full human and canine menu for guests. The Doggie Brunch Menu included Puppy Pancakes, Woofles with Peanut Butter topping, yo-

gurt-frosted Doggo Donuts and Bagels with Puppy Hummus. Baked goods were provided by Chesapeake Barkuterie in Port Republic, which offers “custom creations for posh pups” such as mini barkuterie boards and three-layer peanut butter cakes. Meanwhile, humans got the chance to enjoy a traditional breakfast buffet and cocktails. Along with Chesapeake Barkuterie, 18 other sponsors supported Breakfast at Sniffany’s this year. “I created the event to show and provide support for the organizations that work tirelessly to help animals in need,” said Maertens. “I don’t have the free time to help with the hands-on aspect of rescue. Sniffany’s is my way of showing these amazing people that they are truly appreciated. Rescue can be emotionally and physically exhausting. These donations can relieve some of the stress and financial burdens at least.” Breakfast at Sniffany’s has raised $75,000 which will benefit the Humane Society of Calvert County, Just One More Dachshund Rescue, Animal Relief Fund, and Pets with Disabilities. “A lot of the organizations that we support are run by people with the hugest hearts that invest their own money in saving the lives and bettering the lives of animals in need,” said Maertens. ““I have seen rescues pull senior dogs and dogs with health issues from shelters that otherwise may not have made it into a forever home...Our donations have allowed shelters to make much needed improvements to their facilities.”

mation on the Almshouse Period. “The William Brown House was used as the county’s almshouse house from 1820 to 1965. That’s most of the house’s history, and yet, it is a period we haven’t fully explored or shared with our visitors,” Silberman explains. School tours make up a large percentage of Historic London Town’s annual visitors. By late fall, the museum plans to start construction on an education pavilion with a classroom and covered lunch area to accommodate the growing number of student groups. “Our need for a pavilion is tremendous. We are booked for the remainder of the school year,” states Silberman, “and we are already scheduling school tours for next year.” Restoring and improving the proper-

ty’s waterfront is another undertaking that will require time, planning and funding. “Our current dock is 50 years old,” says Cofield. “We want a dock large enough to accommodate tall ships for public programs.” Silberman adds that improvements made along the waterfront will also be more ecologically friendly as the field of environmental science has grown over the past 50 years. Increasing signage in the gardens and making pathways more accessible are important projects for the near future. “The plan calls for accessible pathways in the historic area first and then the gardens. Our goal is to give as much access as possible to anyone who wants to enjoy the site,” says Silberman.

Remembering Cindy BY PAT PIPER


t was early January 2021 when Fairhaven residents Cindy and Mick Blackistone made the long drive to Johns Hopkins Medical Center to see a tumor specialist. Once there, they were told Cindy’s cancer was both aggressive and rare, nothing could be done and she had 5 months to live. Cindy was 64. They had been married for 30 years. It was a much longer drive home. Among the hundreds of “what’s next” discussions, Cindy asked Mick to write a book about “dogs that have passed through our lives.” Mick, who worked as a spokesman for the marine trades industry had already written several books, some about the Chesapeake Bay and waterman and some children’s books. Dogs had always been the constant in the Blackistones’ life. They both had dogs when they met, there were six dogs during the marriage with four others making what the couple called “pit stops” for a while. Sunday, more than 100 people turned out to remember Cindy and celebrate

the release of Mick’s book of essays, Remembering You, published by New Bay Books, at a book launch at Bayside History Museum in North Beach. Their routine dog walks made the Blackistones well known throughout the Fairhaven community with waves from neighbors as the couple experienced new views of the same road daily. “We were walking with her dog Caper and my dog Tucker about to cross the Fairhaven Bridge that has a tidal pond on one side and Herring Bay on the other side. It was just before sunset and a river otter appeared out of nowhere walking toward us. It stopped us both and we started laughing because it could have been an alien. Caper and Tucker didn’t think this was that big a deal.” It was a way to see nature at work. Cindy’s family had always hated snakes and she once took a look over the small seawall on that bridge to see hundreds of… you guessed it. Her screams didn’t bother them. As they passed Tacaro Farm on Town Point Road, a cow was giving birth to a calf. Life works that way. “How many times did we run down this road chasing one dream or another? Going from here to there sometimes on a specific mission and other times on a whim to see what we could find?” Mick writes in Essay 49. The dog walks took them into Herring Bay as well as Tracy’s Landing and the tree-lined Leitch Road. But as Cindy became weaker, the walks became fewer. But the talks? They continued with new thoughts on “what’s next” albeit softer. Eventually, Mick went solo on the strolls with canine companion Riley. About a year ago, they made the last drive to Baltimore. Mick remembers looking at her in the hospice bed and asking what does he do alone? “Live your life” she whispered. Cindy’s funeral included her favorite music: Chuck Berry, Little Richard and a few songs by Jerry Lee Lewis who they had seen together years earlier. Everyone agreed she approved. From Essay 59: You know life is not a downhill journey. That’s why you have hills to climb. Everybody does. What is important now is that you climb your hills. How big they will be is really up to you. By the way, Mick is still dancing with her when he hears those tunes.

Central Middle Student Wins Again BY KATHY KNOTTS


ast year, we brought you the story of Arnav Bali, a student at Central Middle School in Edgewater. Arnav had won the top prize in an international environmental video competition for students in grade 6 through 12. He’s done it again. Last year’s winning video was about electronic waste. This year, he tackled urban sprawl. His winning video looked at how a growing population needs more housing, which can disrupt important wildlife habitats. It’s a problem he’s seen up close. “I live in an urban area, too… I see how dense population affects the environment.” The contest was the 11th annual World of 7 Billion video contest sponsored by Population Connection. Students are asked to explore population growth as it relates to agriculture and food, ocean health, and urbanization. It was by chance that Arnav even found the contest. It was his skill that made him a two-time winner. “I had found this contest after my newfound interest in film making pushed me to find opportunities to help make me better at this skill. I searched online for ways to do this and this competition was the best way for me to show my passion for making videos, along with sharing knowledge with others.” Arnav says he was very surprised to learn he had won the competition again. “This was my first time re-entering any competition and trying to compete at a

greater level as there were 2,638 contestants—300 more than last year’s 2,274 contestants. I also feel that this is a very competitive contest.” He says he will use his $600 prize money “to help gather more resources to make my videos better and provide a better viewing experience.” It’s not the only video contest he has won, either. He also entered the Wonders of Physics video contest and won in the category of physics of motion. Arnav will enter the STEM program at South River High School next year. In the meantime he continues to pursue other interests other than making prize-winning videos.” Outside of this I play tennis. I have a keen interest in computer science. I have made many web projects and have presented them at the University of Maryland,” says Arnav. “I hope to continue learning and advance my knowledge in order to make meaningful change and help the society at large.” “Communicating a persuasive message in just one minute about one of the many challenges for our crowded world takes real skill,” said John Seager, president of Population Connection. “The winning students go a step further and offer inventive ideas for a sustainable future.” The contest was organized and promoted during the 2021-2022 school year by Population Education, a program of Population Connection. A panel of 60 judges—including college and highschool educators, filmmakers and topic experts—selected the winners. p See Arnav’s video: worldof7billion.org/ video_winners/urban-sprawl-a-challenge/

Summer Fun at the Library


o long summer days make you think of strumming a ukulele around a roaring fire (or firepit) or dunking a hook and worm in a lazy stream? Maybe your child wants to create a new toy? Except, oh, no, you don’t have a uke, fishing pole, or 3D printer handy? Oh, wait, yes you do—at a county library. You know you can borrow books and DVDs, but do you know about the collection of ebooks and eAudiobooks, particularly TumbleBooks (animated, talking picture books that children can read or have read to them) for your little one? Talk about having someone absorbed for hours or longer! If the people in your home are going to be preoccupied with electronic gadgets, how about learning something from their screen and earbuds? In Anne Arundel County (aacpl.net), you can explore the Library of Things that lets you borrow a ukulele (with padded bag, battery-powered tuner, and beginning player instructions) so, if you or someone in your family has always wanted to strum, you can try it for a few weeks before you decide. You can borrow C-Pen ReaderPen kits, Chromebook kits, or a Memory Lab to digitize your home movies, photos, and slides. You can also pick up passes to Historic London Town and Hammond-Harwood House

Museum. More passes to other county attractions will be added this summer. When you want to create a special memory, check out a fishing pole and spend a lazy afternoon catching dinner or nothing. You will need a license (obtain one from the shop across the street from the Mountain Road branch), bait, and a good watering hole, but that’s easy enough to find around here. Akin to the Library of Things is the Makerspace at the Busch Annapolis Library where you can use their sewing machines, learn to make buttons, use their 3D pens, and more. They spaces are open to children and adults. Check the calendar for Makerspace events. The county schedules about a thousand activities every quarter for patrons from babies to grandparents. Programs may include Rainbow Family Storytimes, a Joe Romano magic show (with water, fish, and waves of excitement), or eco-adventures or live music. A fun summer event for adults will be a beer collaboration with three local breweries. Forward Brewing (Eastport, Aug. 2), Crooked Crab (Odenton, Aug. 4), and Hysteria Taphouse (Pasadena, Aug. 6) will each create an exclusive brew to celebrate the library and portion of the proceeds benefit the library.

Calvert Library

The Prince Frederick and Southern Branch of the Calvert County Library (calvertlibrary.info) have 3D printers so your resident creators can have a project or creature made to order. With a maximum size of about 6x6 inches and a cost typically under $10, it’s a summer star that may hang around for a lifetime. Each Calvert library has a computer equipped with Adobe Create Suite so you can work with print design and digital publishing. For video makers, the library has MAGIX Movie Edit Pro to take your project from storyboard to ready for your close-up. They also have Blender, VirtualDub, and Pixlr. While Library of Things items can’t be borrowed from one system to another (as with books), if you’re a Calvert County resident, you can obtain a library card from Anne Arundel County and then be able to borrow something. Although there are no more late fees for books and videos, that doesn’t apply for items such as musical instruments and other items from the Library of Things. As a Calvert library member, you can browse a catalog of 15 million songs, stream three hours a day and download three MP3 songs a week and keep them

Catch a Wave


here may be no better place to be during summer than on the Bay itself. This is the season to pull out your kayak, canoe, stand-up paddleboard or head to one of the many businesses that can get you on the water. Sailboat racing is to Chesapeake Country what hockey is to Canada or bullfighting to Spain, except our arena is the Bay. Finding a place to watch (often a waterside bar) is part of the fun. The best parts of the race for land-based spectators are the start and the finish. Amateurs race for fun and bragging rights most Wednesday nights all along the water. In Annapolis, over 120 vessels race in the Annapolis Yacht Club’s Wednesday Night Series (annapolisyc. org). The finish line stretches from the Annapolis Yacht Club over Spa Creek to Eastport. Be at the Spa Creek Bridge around 7pm when 10- and 12-gauge cannons salute the winners of each class.

In Herring Bay, members of the Herrington Harbour Sailing Association (hhsa.org) race starting around 6:30pm. At best, you’ll get a distant view of boats with their colorful spinnakers

sailing into the sunset. In Solomons, Southern Maryland Sailing Association (smsa.com) members race up the Patuxent River starting at 6:30pm.

Details: jugbay.org/paddleathon/ Jug Bay also hosts other paddling events, showcasing the archaeology of the Patuxent, plus wildlife and plant exploration floats, and special canoe excursions for Father’s Day. Prefer to have someone else do the driving? Annapolis Maritime Museum, Calvert Marine Museum, Schooner Woodwind, and Watermark all host boat tours and cruises during the summer. We highly recommend everyone take a tour of the Thomas Point Lighthouse at least once. Of course, we tend to think summer is about a cold orange or grapefruit crush and dining on crabs on the waterfront. It’s no secret that we are partial to Big Mary’s at Pirates Cove in Galesville. This waterfront dock bar has served South County and the Chesapeake boating community for almost four decades. They’ve been working on some new cocktails for you this summer, including the Hopetown Lime Paloma and Jameson Irish Crush.

Tom Cruise plays Capt. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in Top Gun: Maverick.

Top Gun: Maverick

The ultimate dad movie gets a sequel that’s more nostalgia than plot EXCLUSIVELY IN THEATERS


fter getting three kills in aerial battle, Maverick (Tom Cruise: Mission: Impossible – Fallout) is told he can write his own ticket in the U.S. Navy. Three decades later, Maverick is still a pilot and still a thorn in the paw of seemingly every other person enlisted in the Navy. Though he’s decorated, he’s also insubordinate—he hasn’t received a promotion in years because he does things like stealing a prototype plane to prove it can achieve Mach 10. Maverick is also regarded as a bit of a dinosaur. Aerial combat—or dogfighting—is not a skill that the modern Navy values. The focus has become drone warfare. And while Maverick can think of nothing better than shooting through the wild blue yonder, the military sees his long career as antiquated, something to phase out now that technology has improved. Luckily for Maverick, and to the surprise of no one who’s ever seen a movie before, there’s one last mission that he must join. He’s brought back to Top Gun to train the newest generation for a nearly impossible strike in enemy territory. Who is the enemy? Certainly not one of the many markets this film is hoping to cash in on. They’re just nefarious pilots in black helmets and we’ll leave it at that. Can Maverick connect with these young upstarts? Can he finally put the tragedy of his best friend’s death behind him? And can this movie feature a sex scene that’s somehow funnier than the one in the original movie? There’s a certain irony to the fact that Tom Cruise has built his career on being a super-fit action star, because Top Gun: Maverick is a cinematic order of nachos—there’s too much, it’s not good for you, and it’s slathered in cheese. And much like those nachos, Top Gun: Maverick is easily consumable if you don’t think too critically about what you’re consuming. Thirty-six years after Top Gun stormed the box office Cruise is back to prove that aggressive running and intense facial expressions are just as compelling to watch as they were in the ‘80s. Director Joseph Kosinski (Only the Brave) sets out to remind millennials of all the times they watched

the original with their dad by… remaking the original to an amusing degree. All the greatest hits are featured—beach sports, cocky pilots, Highway to the Danger Zone, paper-thin female characters, and lots of nifty action—it’s all there and in the same form you remember. Kosinski is so dedicated to getting all the beats of the original film in, he uses the exact same opening text. This version of nostalgia filmmaking relies on the audience feeling a burst of nostalgia with each recognition. It works, there were plenty of cheers and claps in the theater with each new reference. Kosinski also rather amusingly captures the homoeroticism of the original ‘80s flick. Think plenty of sweaty men exchanging longing glances, posturing, and jostling with each other shirtless. This is the type of movie where men have to smack each other on the back when they embrace—because it would be weird otherwise. But while there’s not a lot new, Kosinski certainly knows how to wring the nostalgia out of every scene. The film features a surprisingly touching tribute to Iceman, the antagonist of the first film. Played by Val Kilmer, who reprises his role, there’s a real tenderness with how he is portrayed, bringing Kilmer’s real medical conditions into the film so that he’s able to perform again. It was touching to see Kilmer back on screen and the care and respect he was given. Unlike the original movie, the action is upgraded. If you’re a fan of dogfights and aerial acrobatics, Top Gun: Maverick has plenty to recommend itself. There’s enough flipping around in the sky to make you long for a Dramamine with your popcorn. The best part of the film, however, is likely the fact that it’s a tribute to Cruise as a movie star. Top Gun has no doubts about why viewers are buying tickets: it’s to see Cruise’s special brand of charisma. Kosinski spends a good portion of the movie framing Cruise in iconic poses and cutting to characters admiring him. It’s truly a love letter to the actor’s screen presence. If you’re a fan of big, dumb action, or if your knees creak when you get up from a chair, Top Gun: Maverick was written with you in mind. It’s the type of mindless summer blockbuster that’s meant to be seen in a crowd of people, all cheering and clapping. It’s a great reminder of why we all go to the movies and the grand spectacle it can be. Fair Action * PG-13 * 131 mins. p

If you’re a fan of dogfights and aerial acrobatics, Top Gun: Maverick has plenty to recommend itself.

An Insect Out of a Horror Movie?


n 1972, I watched a suspense/horror TV show written by Rod Serling and it made a lasting impact on me. It was a graphic offshoot from the Twilight Zone called Night Gallery. The episode I watched was called “The Caterpillar.” I don’t know why it was named that especially since it had nothing to do with caterpillars. The reason it bothered me was that although the depicted terror is physically impossible it was very well and dramatically acted. I think that was the only episode of Night Gallery that I ever watched. Spoiler alert: This is where I reveal the plot and the twist. So if you want to see the show, stop reading here and go watch it. The episode is set in a foreign jungle and revolves around a love triangle: an older man, his lovely young wife and an unrelated younger fellow who has his eye on the wife. The younger man plots to kill the husband by having someone put a jungle bug in the man’s ear, which is said to cause a horribly painful death. Well, the bug, an earwig supposedly, gets placed in the young man’s ear instead. The plotter realizes the error as he feels movement in his right ear. According to this tale, an earwig cannot back out of the ear and therefore must eat its way through the brain to escape

out the other ear. The process is so painful that it becomes unbearable and the man has to be tied down to stop him from committing suicide. Finally, after lots of screams, the pain subsides and the earwig exits his left ear. The last plot twist comes when the man is told that the bug was a female and laid eggs in his head. In reality, there is no direct passage from one ear canal to the other, and, yes, earwigs can back up. Plus they could not survive inside someone’s skull. Earwigs are certainly creepy-looking bugs with large pinchers on their abdomen. They have poorly developed wings that when unfurled, look like ears—thus the name. They are mostly nocturnal omnivores that have a reputation for causing damage in gardens, particularly flowers. Earwigs eat fruit, carrion and smaller bugs. I tend to find them hiding around the upper stems of common milkweed, which they also feed on. The earwig pinchers do work. I’ve been pinched. I also have seen a lizard try to eat one and get pinched around its eye. When the lizard couldn’t brush the insect off, it shook its head and the earwig went flying. The male earwigs have larger pinchers than females. The pinchers are certainly a threat to predators but they do not seem to use them

against each other. Earwigs court and mate in the fall. Frequently, a pair will spend the winter together. The female will lay 20 to 80 eggs in a nest on the ground and then clean and protect the eggs. She will even stay with the young until after they go through their first molting. This hardly ever happens in the insect world. For gardeners, earwigs are not too difficult to control. Eliminating daytime hiding spots is the best way. Planting marigolds also seems to help. If you see an earwig, remember that they can back up and they will not try to chew through from one ear to the other. But you may remember this work of fiction each time you see one. p

ay is the season for roses, especially heirloom roses. Most varieties bloom throughout May and June, and then repeat their bloom later. With all the early spring rain we’ve had, the roses in my garden are absolutely beautiful this year. Not only beautiful, but their fragrance is captivating. I take inspiration from my garden. The last two years have been so difficult with COVID; my garden seemed to encourage me to celebrate with the help of the roses. I decided to prepare a luncheon with the use of roses. The sweet fragrance wafting from the garden helped to put everyone in a good mood and a relaxed spirit. I made rose syrup from the most fragrant rose petals and combined it with lemonade, tonic water and rose water to create a refreshing light pink drink with a delicate rose flavor. I made chicken salad with homemade rosemary mayonnaise, black olives and magenta rose petals. For dessert, I made rosette cookies with a rosy buttercream. Heirloom roses have edible petals that can be incorporated into many recipes. My favorite roses for fragrance and flavor are Hansa, which has a clove-like scent, Belle Poitevine, which has a sweet rosy scent, and Charles de Mills, which is a rich magenta with

a spicy sweet scent. Pick your petals early in the day and store in the refrigerator until you have enough. The more intensely scented roses tend to taste like their fragrance, so the more aromatic the rose is, the more flavor it has. Most roses do best in deep fertile, moist, well-drained soils with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Full sun and good air circulation is important to reduce disease and insects predation. I add compost, organic fertilizer (8-4-4) and alfalfa pellets to feed the roses. Fish emulsion and manure tea is also good for growth. To make the rosette sugar cookies, cream 1 cup unsalted butter, 1 cup sugar, one large egg, three cups flour, one teaspoon salt and a half a teaspoon of almond extract. Roll the dough into a log about 2 inches in diameter.Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for about one hour. Slice the dough into 1/4 inch thick slices and place on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool completely. Make buttercream icing with 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter. Five cups confectioner sugar, 4 tablespoons rosewater, 1/4 cup rose petal jam and food coloring. Blend until smooth and pipe with a star tip onto the cookies. If you and your friends need a pick me up after these last two years, try hosting a rose garden party. p


STORY AND PHOTO BY DENNIS DOYLE Capt. Frank Tuma with our trophy-sized blue cat.

Changing Times on the Chesapeake


d Robinson and I headed out into the Chesapeake in our usual style, an hour late and totally in doubt as to what to expect. Hitting some promising marks on the fish finder just moments out of the Magothy we hurriedly dropped anchor and set up for some



chumming, expecting bad weather to hit us before noon. It was one of those last-minute trips with little anticipation for anything special other than getting wet. Because of the incipient storms, our neighbor and host, Capt. Frank Tuma,




had a last minute cancellation for his charter boat, Down Time, and had invited us along with his buddy, Vic Novowsky, so as not to waste the morning. The horizon was dark with the incoming blow; we just didn’t know how much time we had before it hit. Anchoring at the beginning of a dropoff in 25 feet of water and casting out a number of fishing lines baited with cut menhaden, we started up the chum grinder and hoped for some quick luck before the forecasted storms brewed up. Surprisingly, a rod tip danced down within 15 minutes and the reel’s drag began to hum with the first run. Disorganization was the immediate reaction as everyone demurred to the person next to him for the honors of engaging in battle. When at last the person closest to the hit stumbled over to assume the task, the fish had tired of the nonsense, and promptly dropped the bait and exited the scene. Accusing the unnamed (and totally innocent) angler for the incident, we resumed the wait, and then eventually decided to refresh the baits. It was the right thing to do as within a few more minutes we had another hookup. After a spirited tussle, Ed landed a nice, fat 26-inch rockfish, his first of the summer season. Things were looking up. Then we had a brutal strike. One of the stouter rods in the stern bent hard over with what was obviously a large fish as line poured off of the reel. The fight lasted some 15 long minutes with much discussion as to the unseen species at the end of the line. With at least




three long runs and a distant broach at the surface some 70 yards behind the boat, the votes were tending toward another rockfish, this time perhaps trophy sized. Finally coming to net, the culprit turned out to be a pleasingly large, blue catfish, probably 30 pounds from all the trouble we had handling the net aboard. Getting it unhooked and into the fish box took a bit of doing as we were still getting our season’s sea-legs in the light chop. The excellent table qualities of the blue cat were thoroughly discussed as we awaited the next fish; we decided the best recipe is catfish fingers and nuggets. This was undoubtedly because all of us apparently consider forks and knives a nuisance to enjoying a good meal. The next fish we hooked up was virtually a twin of the last cat, again close to 30 pounds. Then the bite changed again. This time the culprit was a small blue and white catfish with a large head of about 20 inches. Since none of us had ever seen this species before it was a topic of much conjecture that wasn’t cleared up until we finally accessed some pictures and data on the DNR website. The smallest of the cats cruising our waters, the white catfish is also the sole native of the Chesapeake with the blue, channel and flathead cats being invasive species. We were destined to get about a dozen of these fat and tasty rascals before the rains came. Score: 1 rockfish, 4 blue cats, 12 white cats. How times have changed. p

On April 25, the Oklahoma Election Board ruled that state Rep. Sean Roberts, who is running for labor commissioner, cannot be listed on the ballot as “The Patriot,” as he had hoped to be, KFOR-TV reported. “I’m not surprised they ruled I had to change my name,” Roberts said. “Back in my area, in the grassroots, I’m generally known as The Patriot.” He claimed between 200 and 600 people know him by that name. Roberts’ opponent and current labor commissioner Leslie Osborn said Roberts has appeared on seven previous ballots as Kevin Sean Roberts or Sean Roberts, and that he is not generally known as The Patriot. Roberts is considering appealing the decision.

Crash Collector

Everyone needs a hobby. Christina Warren is a busy software developer, but in her free time, she collects the swag of epic corporate failure: from Enron to Fyre Festival to her latest acquisition, a PopSocket branded with the CNN+ logo. NPR reported that Warren isn’t interested in milquetoast meltdowns. She wants stuff from the companies that made a big splash and then sank to the bottom of the barrel. “I’m looking at the ones that were flying high, too close to the sun,” she said, which “makes it funnier to be out someplace wearing a shirt from one of those things.” But she doesn’t want to spend more than $75 on any one item. She avoids counterfeit merchandise, and said her “white whale, the thing I haven’t been able to obtain yet, is something officially from Theranos. I would even take a pen, you know, like a ballpoint pen.”


A 78-year-old man in Slidell, Louisiana, was unable to get a good grip on a squirrel that was attacking him on April 26, possibly because the squirrel was “eating his hand,” according to Slidell police. KATC-TV News reported that the man was trying to choke the squirrel, who inflicted “significant injuries” on the victim. (He is expected to make a full recovery.) Police said the man was walking around outside when the varmint came at him from the direction of the roof without any provocation. In a prescient pre-scold, police said while the story might sound funny, the incident was serious. So stop laughing.

April 18 was a tough day for Franklin County (Florida) Sheriff A.J. Smith, the Miami Herald reported. His deputies conducted a “controlled buy” that day involving Smith’s 38-year-old daughter, Kristen Kent, who was charged with trafficking methamphetamine. The sheriff, whose office features a sign saying “We don’t meth around,” admitted that this case “hit him in the face.” When his deputies arrested a different woman for trafficking, she told them she had gotten the drugs from Kent. “My daughter?” he asked. “Yes, sir,” she answered. He called it “gut-wrenching.” Still, he said Kent would receive

the same treatment he recommends for others who are caught up in meth’s effects. “Methamphetamine does not discriminate and neither do we,” he said.

The King of PTO

In January 1938, Walter Orthmann started work in the shipping department at Industrias Renaux S.A., a textile company in Brusque, Brazil, at the age of 15. Eighty-four years later, he still works there, now as a sales manager, Oddity Central reported. Orthmann turned 100 years old on April 19, but he has no plans to retire: “I like working here at the company,” he said. He noted that everything is easier now, with mobile phones and internet connections, but he no longer travels like he used to. “You have to like to work. You can’t just do any job to say that you are working,” Orthmann advised.

Bright Idea

Deborah Hodge, 49, of the Sidcup area of London, has been forced to rehome three pets because previous landlords wouldn’t allow them, but she couldn’t bear the thought of being separated from her current cat, India, Metro News reported. So Hodge came up with a plan: She would marry India, making it more difficult for a landlord to separate them. India wore gold lame and Hodge donned a tuxedo for the big event, where a friend presided over the wedding vows in a London park. “We cannot be separated under any circumstances, as she is as important to me as the children,” Hodge said. “I refuse to be parted with her.”


Erik and Athina Tenczar bought their home abutting the Indian Pond Country Club golf course in Kingston, Massachusetts, for the beautiful views. However, they ended up suing the club over the 600+ golf balls that have left dents and shattered windows in their home over five years, NBC News reported. The couple said they’ve long since stopped repairing shattered windows, instead covering them with plastic. “When it hits, it sounds like a gunshot,” Athina said. “We’re always on edge,” Erik added. A Plymouth County Superior Court jury sympathized and awarded them $4.93 million. The club is now launching an appeal and has worked with the course’s architect to find solutions for the errant projectiles.


Darbi Boddy, a Lakota School Board member in Butler County, Ohio, was asked to resign on April 27 after she apparently mistakenly directed visitors on her “Boddy for Lakota” Facebook page to a pornographic website, WLWT-TV reported. On April 26, she created a post about topics being taught in classrooms and included a link, but she spelled it wrong. Other school board members recognized that it was a mistake but said she was negligent; board president Lynda O’Connor called the error “absolutely unacceptable.” In response, Boddy

said, “This is a ruse, a political ruse. I did nothing wrong,” and called the meeting a circus designed to shut down conservatives. Before the website incident, Boddy had been the subject of a petition, signed by 1,500 people, seeking her censure for “continued disrespect and aggression toward Superintendent Matt Miller.” She said she will never resign.

Crime Report

With the help of a fine feathered friend, investigators in Buncombe County, North Carolina, are finally wrapping a cold (duck) case from 2020, WLOS-TV reported. Nellie Sullivan, a woman in her 90s, was determined to be missing in 2020, but her body was never located. Nevertheless, her granddaughter, Angela Wamsley, 46, and Wamsley’s boyfriend, Mark Barnes, 50, were arrested in December 2020 on multiple charges, including concealing a death. On April 14, a couple out walking their pet duck discovered a container after the duck wandered under a trailer where Wamsley and Barnes once lived. Sullivan’s remains were inside. “If I could give that duck a medal, I would,” said Sgt. Mark Walker. He said Wamsley and Barnes continued to collect Sullivan’s Social Security and retirement benefits and fill her prescriptions after her demise.

The Job of the Researcher

In preparing to reconstruct Paris’ NotreDame cathedral after a devastating fire in 2019, scientists have discovered a sarcophagus that may date to the 14th century, France24 reported. It was buried 65 feet underground, among the brick pipes of an old heating system, and extracted from the cathedral on April 12. They were able to look inside using an endoscopic camera, where they saw a skeleton, a pillow of leaves and fabric, among other items. Lead archaeologist Christophe Besnier noted that “if it turns out that it is in fact ... from the Middle Ages, we are dealing with an extremely rare burial practice.” France’s Institute of Forensic Medicine will study the body and contents of the sarcophagus and try to determine the social rank of the person. Afterward, it will be returned “as an anthropological asset” and could possibly be reinterred at Notre-Dame.


You might have heard that Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her 70th year as monarch across the pond. Along with snapping up collector teacups and T-shirts, loyal Britons can slather their excitement for the platinum jubilee onto their sandwiches, with two renamed condiments from Heinz: HM Sauce (ordinarily known as HP Sauce) and Salad Queen (Salad Cream). Sky News suggested trying them on (Bucking)ham sandwiches or coronation chicken. “Releasing limited-edition bottles in time for the Jubilee felt like the perfect fit,” gushed Heinz brand manager Anke von Hanstein. Gotta love the Brits. p Send your weird news items with subject line WEIRD NEWS to WeirdNewsTips@amuniversal.com.

Ever been in one of those ‘proper’ living rooms, where beautifully crocheted doilies adorn the backs of sofas and chairs? There was a reason for them back then, and it wasn’t so uncle Henry could blow his nose. Seems there was a hair ointment called Macassar that caught on with men at the turn of the 20thcentury. It was so popular, it caused fellows who normally would not groom to groom. No one would normally complain, but when these men came to visit they left slick spots on mother’s good furniture. So, mother wasn’t happy and said, “make some things to soak up the d*** oily hair.” So, the ‘D-oily’ was born. Somehow, that was a lot easier to say than antimacassar. Scoring: 31 - 40 = Aloft; 26 - 30 = Ahead; 21 - 25 = Aweigh; 16 - 20 = Amidships; 11 - 15 = Aboard; 05 - 10 = Adrift; 01 - 05 = Aground
