Yours truly had her first “real” newspaper job in 1999, following pro women golfers at the U.S. Women’s Open at Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point, Mississippi. I know nothing about golf and nextto-nothing about covering a sporting event. I learned on the job and from my colleagues. Even then, working at a small family-owned newspaper, I was coming into this industry as things were about to change. I had to type hand-written letters into a com puter; I had a mini-cassette recorder for interviews, film in my camera and we were still using waxing machines and X-Acto knives for layouts. Now I’m having to learn my way around social media, email services, SEOs and Google analytics. We are certainly not alone in giving up the physical product. Hundreds of newspapers have shuttered around the globe—I only know a few journal ists that still remain at a traditional print company. The pandemic made it evenWhenharder.Chesapeake Bay Media bought the paper in 2020, little did we know what was on the horizon. But Bay Weekly persisted.

“Not only will this Heritage Tour public program showcase all of the im portant work done at HSMC, but it will bring HSMC to the other heritage areas of Maryland as we share our stories of discovery and achievement with the rest of Maryland’s citizens,” said Friesen.

“We stand here on land once trod by Maryland’s first pilgrims embarking on this noble and glorious adventure,” Historic St. Mary’s Commissioner Ron Anton said before the crowd. The cannon fired, the ribbon was cut and the public was welcomed on for the firstAftertime.years of work at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, leaders admit it’s a bittersweet goodbye. “In a way, we hated to see it go. But we could not be more elated today to see it here where it rightfully belongs,” said museum chair CraigUnderneathFuller. sails meant to look straight out of 1634, the ship does have some modern comforts. “Forward is our ship’s galley. It’s very nice. We have a built-in galley, we have a refrigerator in there. We have a cooktop, counter space, and a sink. In the 17th century that space would have been the locker,” the Dove’s Jeremy Heveron showed Bay Bulletin

“It’s a more historically accurate rig. It’s a more unique rig to that time pe riod,” Hilgartner said. “And it’s a rig that no one has really had experience sailing before, so it’s pretty exciting.” Now the Dove’s focus shifts to educat ing the public. Historic St. Mary’s City Director of Education Peter Friesen says he’s “ecstatic, relieved, and looking toward the future.”

“We’ll be able to tell stories that we’ve never been able to tell before with a ship that’s a bit more accurate than what we think the Dove of 1634 would have looked like,” he said. “We know based off the historic record that the original Dove had a crew of seven. The Dove from 1978 had to have a crew of nine. So there’s no way the crew in the 1600s who have been able to sail that ship.”The new vessel has two masts, while the old one had three. “One of the most exciting things is it’s accessible. We have an ADA-compliant ship. We can get people on the main deck with our new gangway,” said Friesen. There was a prayer and a presentation of flags for the new ship.

The new Maryland Dove will travel to several ports around the Bay to cel ebrate its completion. With assistance from the Maryland Heritage Authority and a multi-heritage area grant, the first port of call will be City Dock. The ship will visit Annapolis Sept. 9-11. The ship is scheduled to arrive in An napolis late Sept. 8. and will be open as a dockside exhibit from 1- 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday Sept. 10 and 11.

And, of course, a modern-day GPS would not have been present in the quarter deck to navigate.

SETS SAIL ON THE BAY BY CHERYL COSTELLO I t was a sail five years in the making. The new Maryland Dove made a jour ney up the St. Marys River on the way to her permanent home in Historic St. Mary’s City. This Dove is the most historically accurate version yet of the ship that brought the first European colonists to Maryland’s original capital. Bay Bulletin was lucky to be aboard one of the estimated 50 boats that ush ered the vessel into port for a welcoming ceremony Sunday. For the historical shipwrights who have poured years into research and hands-on work, watching the Maryland Dove sail sends chills up the spine, even on a hot August day. “It’s pretty surreal and it hasn’t completely settled in yet,” said lead rigger Sam Hilgartner. The Dove was built as an educational vessel to tell the story of the first col onists and funded with $5 million in state funds. It replaces the well-known Maryland Dove that had been an am bassador of Maryland history since 1978. At more than 44 years old, that vessel would have needed extensive renovation and repairs. Updated re search revealed some historical incon sistencies in the old interpretation. People lined up to watch from the shore as the new Dove made its arrival. “I think it’s going to be a great ren dition for St. Mary’s City to have,” said spectator Bernie Taylor. Capt. Matt Bowen grew up on the St. Marys River. He took Bay Bulletin out on his dad’s fishing charter to witness the milestone event. “Beautiful,” Bowen commented. “How did so many people get here on such a small vessel across theTheAtlantic?”construction of the new ship took place at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels. Bay Bulletin has been following the process since planning and design first began. Lead shipwright Joe Connor and Hil gartner traveled together to Europe to look at shipbuilding techniques there and get closer to historical accuracy. “Huge exhale,” Connor said of complet ing the Dove project. “It’s like threeand-a-half years of pretty extreme dedication.”Theproject continued right through the pandemic, while the maritime mu seum was closed to the public.

“She’s tiller steered—ship wheels didn’t exist yet. Ship wheels came in the early 18th century. So all the ships in our timeframe would be hand-tillered,” Heveron says. “People don’t realize how fabulous this was as a stepping-ground from the old country,” said visitor Rosemary Hinkle. “I mean we were first. We were first down here.”

Priced at $49,000, the houseboat fea tures a galley, dining area, banquette, cabin, and of course, cannons off the stern. Cheekily named Surrender the Booty, the boat comes with a “skeleton crew” of bony buccaneers, all wearing Corder’s signature pink flipflops. You can see why this boat listing has attracted attention, even warranting a post from the “Zillow Gone Wild” social media account on Instagram and Twit ter, which features unusual real estate listings. The post has 785,000 likes. TV and radio interviews followed. Corder says text messages and voice mails continue to flood in about the boat, making it a full-time job to answer inquiries. But he’s picky about who he will ultimately sell it to—it has to be the right person, the right location, and the right intended use. He’d love for the new owner to keep the houseboat at


Charles has been singing and song writing for a long time—writing since he was 14, he tells us. He recently won the International Singer-Songwriter Award’s Entertainer of the Year. He has some advice for those trying to make it as“Anymusicians.young artist out there, I think it’s important to express yourself. You want to grow as a writer as well as a performer,” he says. Charles is still growing his own roles, too. He and his wife Miranda have a 3-year-old son and Charles is a national spokesman for the organization Zero— The End of Prostate Cancer. He’s a strong supporter of the Eastern Shore, even writing a new song called “Fish On” for the White Marlin Open. And he’ll be headlining the 75th an nual crab derby in Crisfield on Satur day, Sept. 3.

The video shows sunset on the Ocean City Bayside, the Bay Bridge, Assateague Island, Annapolis, and of course the Bay. “I think for us Marylanders, it’s al most like this sacred body of water. The crabs, the fishermen. There’s so much tradition there,” Charles says. He praises one of the state’s finest crab pickers. “I’ve got to give a shoutout to Ms. Joyce Fitchett, she is an eight- or nine-time derby-winning crab picker! She picked like five crabs in three min utes. I was like, ‘Can I hire you, please.’”

Charles says the video was filmed with the intention of looking authentic. The shots inside Oriole Park at Cam den Yards were taken were from a real performance when he sang the National Anthem there earlier this summer. “We wanted to get that real life feel… We’re not setting up for 5 hours. We’re just like, ‘We’re in it, we’re doing it.’ And I think you feel that in the video be cause it’s all very natural.”  Things got very real while shooting a scene where Charles and friends drive a Jeep on the beach at Assateague.

“The videographer was riding out the side of the Jeep and we were going pretty fast and I’m like, ‘Are you sure you’re alright?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah I’m fine and we’re getting the shot.’ Then he falls off and just face-plants, comes up, and is like ‘Go, go go [and continues filming]!”

It’s a noble pursuit in the boating world: rescuing old, beyond-hope fiberglass boats in disrepair and giving them new life. That’s what a retired firefighter is doing in Virginia’s Northern Neck—but with a twist. All of Dan Corder’s rescue boats are transformed into pirate ships and then sold to just the right buyer. In a little part of Lodge Creek off the lower Poto mac River that he calls Pirate’s Cove, Corder takes boats that “you couldn’t give away”, makes them seaworthy, and decorates them in full pirate regalia. One such boat is listed for sale right now, and the listing has gone viral.

Jimmy Charles is a country music art ist right in the thick of the Nashville scene. But he still goes home to his birthplace of Worcester County. And the Towson University graduate makes it no secret how much pride he has for his home Charlesstate.just released a music video for one of his newest songs, “It’s a Mary land Thing, You Wouldn’t Understand”. And anyone who lives in Maryland would find it hard not to enjoy. He spoke with Bay Bulletin about the inspiration for the song and filming the video—which he says he’d do all over again in a heartbeat.



From Baltimore’s pro sports teams to the Eastern Shore’s pro crab pickers, his lyrics capture the essence of the Old Line State. If you’ve never seen an Atlantic sunrise then the sunset over Isle of Wight/ Never crossed the Bay Bridge with the windows down, salt air blowing all around/Neverheard of Assawoman or Susque hanna/ Got a Maryland tattoo with matching pajamas/ Let me shed a little light so you can recognize/WhyusFree State folks have so much pride

“Boats are like people: when you’re young and beautiful everybody wants you but when you get old and tired no body wants you,” he quips. “I keep these things out of the dumpster.” He also reuses materials for all the decorations on his boats. Corder finds almost everything at local thrift and consignment shops, using everything from spires and crows’ nests to decora tive table legs and ornate bedposts. “It’s repurposing in an artistic way.” A widower at age 63, Corder also takes on the projects as a form of therapy since losing his wife. She was supportive of his pirate ship hobby, and the couple enjoyed showing up on one of the vessels at wa terfront restaurants dressed in costume. He’s showing no signs of slowing down in his boat makeovers. After the house boat sells, he has two more old boats he hasn’t started advertising yet. To inquire about buying the houseboat, call Dan Corder at 571-233-1663.

He swapped the engine for a more user-friendly out board motor and gradually brought the boat to Whilelife.this boat is getting all the at tention, it’s actually Corder’s 33rd pi rate boat makeover. The first was a neglected skiff his neighbor planned to set adrift in the Potomac about 13 years ago. Corder intervened, turning the 18foot sailboat into a “gaudy” spectacle so laden with pirate decor that it only had about 8 inches of freeboard.

“The timing of its arrival is especially fitting,” says Schillica Howard, the mu seum’s Curator of Collections. “The year 2022 is the 200th anniversary of Harriet Tubman’s birth and September is Inter national Underground Railroad Month.”

Tubman Statue Bigger Than Life

“It was so outlandish people would cheer when I came by,” Corder recalls. A pirate enthusiast with a themed cabin on Smith Mountain Lake, Va., spotted the skiff and offered to buy it on the spot, and the rest is history. Corder typically chooses smaller, affordable boats to make over and sell: speedboats, pontoon boats, even a jetski. Most are priced around or below $10,000 because Corder wants to show people that “you don’t need a lot of money to have fun on the water.” One of his boats even sold to Disney as part of a Make-a-Wish Foundation wish fulfillment. The full-blown pirate ship was planted in the backyard of a child with cancer, surrounded by blue flowers to make the “water”. A self-proclaimed “eco-pirate”, Corder feels it’s good to keep old boats out of land fills and hopes others will follow his lead.

Scott has captured Tub man’s larger-than-life heroism in her 10-foot-tall sculpture titled Araminta with Rifle and Vévé.

Somerville is no stranger to this team sport. She is a graduate of the Massa chusetts Institute of Technology, the Air Force Institute of Technology, and the United States Naval Pilot Test School and has accumulated over 2,500 flight hours. Over the course of a career span ning more than two decades, she has been a test pilot with the VX-31 Dust Devils of China Lake and VX-23 Salty Dogs of Pax River, led weapons and air craft software development, and held numerous positions of leadership. She is the recipient of the Air Medal, two Mer itorious Service Medals, two Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medals, two Navy and Marine Corps Achieve ment Medals, and several campaign medals and citations. For her part, Salamon is a longtime civil servant responsible for coordinat ing the efforts of almost 4,000 person nel. She is the first civilian director of Naval Test Wing Atlantic and is the re cipient of the Department of the Navy Meritorious Civil Servant Award. Of her position, she says, “It’s an ex citing challenge ramping up talent and supportive skills sets the Navy will need to test and evaluate evolving sys tems and technology that make up the future of naval aviation.”

“Dr. Scott is a world-renowned artist. Her other sculptures are much smaller, no more than 3 or 4 feet tall,” explains Howard. Howard considers Scott’s work to be a touchstone in the museum’s 38-year history.

While Araminta with Rifle and Vévé is a stand-alone piece, it is also part of an upcoming exhibition, The Radical Voice of Blackness Speaks of Resistance and Joy opening Nov.10. Guest-curated by Myrtis Bedolla of Galerie Myrtis in Baltimore, the exhibition will feature the work of 15 Black Maryland-based artists and pieces from the Banneker-Douglass Museum Fine Art Collection. The exhibition will use art to explore America’s fraught his tory of systemic racism while celebrating the resiliency of African-Americans.

Ma’am, Yes Ma’am: Somerville Becomes First Woman to Lead Naval Test Wing Atlantic


“This test wing is charged with an important mission: deliver lethality to our Sailors and Marines. It’s a huge challenge but this team is up for it—flight test is the ultimate team sport.”

Capt. Elizabeth Somerville shakes hands with Col. Richard Marigliano after taking command of Naval Test Wing Atlantic during a ceremony at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Aug. 11. Somerville is the developmental test wing’s first woman commander. During the ceremony, Marigliano retired from the U.S. Marine Corps after 27 years of service.

“Having an exhibition connected to big names in the art community, curated by Myrtis Bedolla, showing the art of Dr. Scott, these are things we can do because of our visitors’ support,” adds Howard.

“The Banneker-Douglass Museum interprets the African-American expe rience and culture in Maryland, and of course, our museum is named for two very important and influential African-American men,” says Howard. “Having this sculpture at our museum expands our opportunity to explore the experiences of Black women.”

The Navy says the test wing is in capa ble hands with Salamon and Somerville.

Naval Test Wing Atlantic operates under the umbrella of the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD). NAWCAD is the largest Navy warfare center, developing and supporting all aircraft used by the Navy and Marines. The Test Wing is an im portant component of the work done by NAWCAD.Focusedon warfighter requirements, explains the NTWL website, “the wing provides aircrew, aircraft assets, main tenance support, operational and safety oversight, process and facility support for developmental flight and ground test.”

he U.S. Naval Air Station Patuxent River, known in Chesapeake Country as simply Pax River, is home to a devel opmental wing that conducts testing for every aircraft in the Navy and Marine Corps.And now for the first time ever, the Naval Test Wing Atlantic at Pax River has two women at the helm: executive director Deb Salamon and the newly ap pointed commander, Captain Elizabeth Somerville.OnAug.11, Somerville relieved the previous commander, Commodore Col. Richard Marigliano, of duty. She and Salamon now both hold the titles of first woman in their respective roles. Marigliano, who stepped into retire ment during the ceremony after nearly 30 years of service, is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps who described his tour at the Naval Test Wing Atlantic (NTWL) as “the most challenging and re warding over [his] 27 years as a Marine.”

“In 1986, just two years after Banneker-Douglass Museum opened, it held its first ever group art exhibition featuring the work of six artists. Dr. Scott was the only female artist repre sented in that exhibition,” she says.


“This Wing’s leadership and our people make this team world class,” said NAW CAD Commander Rear Adm. John Lem mon, who presided over the ceremony.

“It’s important that the State House be maintained for future generations and that is what this project is all about,” says Ellington Churchill Jr., Secretary of Maryland’s Department of General Services, the agency responsi ble for maintaining state-owned facil ities. “To our knowledge, this may be the first time all elements of exterior maintenance have been addressed. As the oldest operating state house in the nation, the building deserves that.”

Architect and Senior Project Manager Mark M. Schneidman agrees. “Up until now, exterior maintenance on the build ing has been piecemeal,” he says. “While this is not a historic preservation proj ect per se, we are respectful of the his toric fabric and nature of the project.”

Maryland State House Dome Gets Makeover BY SUSAN NOLAN

The present State House is the third to occupy State Circle. The first was con structed in 1695 shortly after the capital was moved from St. Mary’s City. A fire destroyed that building in 1704. Five years later, a second State House was completed, but within 60 years, it was deemed too small and rendered obsolete. It was razed and construction began on the current building in 1772. Hurricanes and the American Revolution delayed construction. When the Continental Congress met in Annapolis in 1783, the building was not yet finished.

dominates the Annapolis skyline and is as much an icon for the state as the blue crab or the black-eyed Susan. In 2000, its likeness was even minted on the quarter.

If you’ve visited Annapolis lately, you have undoubtedly noticed the dome is veiled in scrim and wrapped in scaffolding. It’s the first step in a comprehensive two-phase restoration project that once completed, will touch up the exterior of the State House, the grounds within State Circle and the 1736 Old Treasury Building.

Washington resigning his commission in 1783 that tells us a French digni tary visited Annapolis and commented on the beauty of the State House’s interior, particularly the Old Senate Chamber. He also commented that the dome was inadequate in size and didn’t let in enough light.” Additionally, the old dome leaked. Timber beams rotted and needed to be replaced. The exterior of the current dome was completed in 1788 and included the famed Franklin lightning rod, named for its designer Benjamin Franklin, and the original acorn, an almost 5-foot-tall nut-shaped finial that held the lightning rod in place. That original acorn was re moved in 1996 and stored at Maryland Archaeological Conservation Labora tory at Jefferson-Patterson Park and Museum in Calvert County. It is now on display at the Museum of Historic An napolis, located at 99 Main Street. The interior of the dome was com pleted in 1794. The project was not without conflict and tragedy. The dome’s architect and designer Joseph Clark quit before the project was com pleted, and in 1793, plasterer Thomas Dance fell over 90 feet to his death while working on the interior. Churchill and Schneidman are aware of the dome’s storied history. The De partment of General Services is re sponsible for maintaining 55 buildings belonging to the State of Maryland. Most of these buildings are in Annapolis and Baltimore, and none is more historic than the State House. “We have an his toric exemption,” explains Schneidman. “We don’t have to go with the lowest bidder when hiring. We take experience and expertise into account. I meet with the subcontractors, and I know we have

“At this point, we have removed 75 percent of the paint. We are using steam only, no chemical paint strip pers,” says Schneidman. Wooden ele ments will be repainted with a linseed oil-based paint as latex paint traps moisture and is not as durable. Windows have been removed and are being assessed and restored off-site. Like the balusters and other elements, windows must be thoroughly evalu ated individually. While some need to be repaired or restored, others may need to be replaced entirely, depending on their condition. “We are finding they are in need of different levels of inter vention,” Schneidman says. All the slate will be replaced. Accord ing to Schneidman, some of the slate was installed as recently as 1978, but the details are not historically accu rate giving the dome a rougher ap pearance than it would have had in the 18th Replacingcentury.theslate is not the only change that will enhance the dome’s look. The lightning protection system, currently on the exterior, will be relo cated to the interior of the dome, and a smaller, less intrusive sprinkler sys tem will replace the existing one. With so many building elements being moved, discoveries about past restoration projects are continuously being made. Schneidman recently found evidence of work done on the bal ustrade in 1879—a dated card nailed to the wood and enclosed beneath the metal encasement. “We are partner ing with the Maryland State Archives to have the card conserved and repli cated,” he states. The 1879 work was previouslyAccordingundocumented.toSchneidman, the project is running on time and within budget.

Work is done in a carefully orchestrated sequence and in limited space. The scaffolding holding the work crew and their equipment is a custom design costing nearly $1 million by itself—and taking months to design and construct. Because it is a separate structure, not attached to the dome, it mitigates some of the stress placed on the dome during the restoration pro cess. “But there is no way to eliminate that stress completely,” explains Chur chill. “It’s challenging because the his toric timbers do not come with modern weight-bearing calculations.”

As for my three wishes, I’ll make them simple: I wish that Idris Elba finally got a movie worth his consid erable talents. I wish you’d check out filmstodifor.com if you’d like to read more reviews from me. And most of all, I wish you excellent moviegoing. Good Fantasy * R * 108 mins. •

While the visuals never disappoint, the script makes the film lag a bit. The framing device—the fairytale of Alithea and the Djinn—doesn’t have the same sense of wonder and whimsy that the rest of the film does. At its heart, the film is interested in the magic inherent in sharing sto ries, and cinematographer John Seale (Mad Max: Fury Road) does his best to infuse each scene with shimmering, enchanted touches. Each story the Djinn tells is set in a new locale with new sights and sounds to explore. It’s a visual feast, but one that doesn’t fully satisfy. The parts set in modern times feel long, with less color and quirk to keep up the interest. The viewer would be excused for wishing to stay within the world of the Djinn’s tales.And Idris Elba does conjure some brilliant tales. Though Swinton is a formidable actor, this movie belongs to Elba. He’s dazzling as a modern-day Scheherazade, weaving his yarns and trying to tempt Alithea into making a wish. Both his anguish and fascina tion with humanity are apparent in his stories filled with hedonism and delights. It’s the perfect lure for a woman who can’t resist a good story. As for Swinton, her Alithea is a crackling source of wit and wisdom. She gamely matches Elba point for point on mythology and storytelling. But her character falters slightly due to the script’s lack of imagination. Alithea can’t compete with the Djinn’s tall tales, and the movie doesn’t want to help her do so. She’s a conduit for the audience, but one that can’t possi bly hold the film on her own.

IN THEATERS I f you could have three wishes, what would they be? Fame, fortune, Idris Elba shirtless—all are tempting, but usually stories like this come with a catch.Narratoligist Dr. Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton: Memoria) knows the catches that come with her job inti mately. A quiet academic who prides herself on her solitude, Alithea has always related best to the world through stories. Her inner world is so strong that she had an imagi nary friend for decades, helping her through her solitary youth. So when a Djinn (Idris Elba: Beast) pops out of a bottle bought at a Turk ish bazaar, she’s not surprised, but she is Thoughskeptical.theDjinn offers her three wishes, Alithea doesn’t want any part of it. She’s read enough stories to know a cautionary tale when she sees one. But the Djinn is persistent—he must grant the three wishes or be condemned to live in a bottle. Besides, he assures her he’s a god-fearing Djinn who would never do anything untoward. While mulling his offer, Alithea asks him to tell her about all the times he’s found himself confined to a contain er. Can the Djinn’s stories convince Alithea to make a wish? What wish would you make, if given the chance? A cacophony of sound and stun ning images, Three Thousand Years of Longing works best when its Djinn is weaving his magical tales. Director George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road) is no stranger to bombastic filmmak ing. And he’s fully able to unleash his imagination here, with some thrilling set pieces and bursts of beautiful color.

What’s your wish?

Still, Three Thousand Years of Long ing is a film that’s definitely worth see ing on the big screen. Miller’s vision is always something to behold, even when his storytelling doesn’t quite stick the landing. Drink in the visuals and enjoy the feast of narrative flare as the Djinn transports you through three fantasy worlds. Like most fairytales, this one’s end ing is bittersweet—and so is the end ing of this review. I’ve been honored to review films for Bay Weekly for the better part of a decade. I’ve taken the job seriously, and cherished every lovely email of encouragement and angry voicemail left on the paper’s machine. But it’s time for this tale to end and for us all to move on. Thank you for reading. I’ll keep watching films and I hope you will, too.

Three Thousand Years of Longing

18 • CBM BAY WEEKLY • September 1 - September 8, 2022

T his week I was walking one of the trails at Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary in Lothian when a horsefly began buzz ing me. It was super annoying. The darn bug would hit my ear, fly at my eyes, land on my neck or just circle my head. It wouldn’t go away. Finally, it landed on my left ear and as I was shaking my head to dislodge it, a large dragonfly flew right at me and suddenly turned to my left. I heard the rattle of the drag onfly’s wing and a crunching sound. My excellent new friend, the dragonfly, car ried off that pesky horsefly. But darn if the dragonfly landed too high in a bush for me to get a good photograph.  I decided to go somewhere with lots of dragonflies and try to get some photos. Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center (CBEC) in Grasonville is essentially an island (at high tide) surrounded by marsh grasses and is loaded with marsh flies, mosquitoes, and dragonflies. There are several freshwater ponds there that support developing dragon fly nymphs. I was lucky to be there the same week that several dragonfly spe cies were starting to leave their watery lives as nymphs and emerge as flying mosquito eaters. Of the 129 species of dragonflies listed in the Maryland Bio diversity Project, I got photos of eight different species.  The most colorful one I saw was the autumn meadowhawk. The males are bright red and tend to spend a lot of time perched about waist height, an easy photo-op. Another colorful dragon fly was the very tiny seaside dragonlet. The female is golden in color and the males are almost black. The dragon let is the only Western Hemisphere dragonfly whose nymph lives in salt water. They are a saltmarsh dragonfly that typically emerges in late sum mer. Unfortunately, they tend to perch below knee-high—which is hard on an old photographer’s back. When shooting photos of insects it’s important to understand some biology. Dragonflies are very motion sensitive. Perched dragonflies are difficult to walk up on. To get a photo, I have to move extremely slowly and avoid any sudden movement. This includes movement of a camera strap, a foot, a finger—anything.  If I hold very still, then, to a dragon fly, I become part of the scenery and not a predator. They basically stop being able to see you. Patience is needed because the drag onfly may suddenly chase a bug or be challenged by another dragonfly. If it does fly, I wait while holding still because they frequently will return to the same resting spot.  There are three elements that I pay attention to when taking any animal’s photo. The first is to get a good focus on the closest eye. The second is finding a pleasant non-distracting background. Last is using the proper exposure of the subject. After I shift my position to get a decent background, I adjust my camera settings. I like a blurred background, so I set the aperture to be fairly wide open, f/3.2 to f/5, which gives a very narrow focus depth of field. For insects, I use a macro lens but any lens that allows the bug to fill one-quarter of the frame would be good. I use spot focusing and move the “spot” to cover the closest eye. I then adjust the exposure value according to the background. Using center-weighted light metering, if the background is dark compared to the subject then I increase the shutter speed to prevent overexposure of the dragonfly. Then if the background is bright compared to a dark subject then I decrease the shutter speed to bring out the dark insect.

Photo Tips for Shooting Insects

One of the hardest photos to capture is one where the eyes, back of the thorax, wings, and abdomen are all in focus and still have a narrow depth of field. Putting all the body elements in the same focal plane is very difficult as the dragon fly is frequently adjusting itself—which makes me adjust my position (slowly) and right when I am about to press the shutter the dragonfly moves again. Of the 50 of so photos I got at CBEC, only one, an autumn meadowhawk, had all the elements on the same focal plane. Of course there are certain species of dragonflies, like darners and saddle bags, that rarely perch. The approach to those hovering insects is to use a telephoto lens with a high shutter speed and more narrow aperture and trying to catch one hovering in place. I use the same approach for pho tographing butterflies but since they have a great sense of smell they must be approached from downwind. But terflies also move continuously while feeding on flowers, which makes for a lot of wasted shots. I frequently will post myself near the best-looking flower and wait for one to fly in.  I like getting an eye and tongue in focus along with part of a wing so I fre quently use a smaller aperture of f/7.1 or f/8.  Many butterflies will open their wings fully once or twice right after landing. It happens quickly so to get all parts of the wing in focus the shot has to be fast and from the right height. When there is no wind, the butterflies will leave their wings open longer. A windless day is best for butterfly shots. When taking photos of amphibians and reptiles, I basically use the same approach: move slowly and extend my arm and camera away from my face. That extension blocks them from seeing my eyes which makes them feel less threatened.

To get really close, I will slowly extend my arm away from my face but toward the insect. I still look through the view finder and keep the focus spot on the animal’s eye.

Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary has a butterfly garden and a large number of butterflies and dragonflies zipping around. Fort Smallwood Park, Sandy Point Park and CBEC have diverse wetlands that support a wide variety of dragonflies including the seaside dragonlet.Ifyouwant a challenge, head out and see how many species you can capture in a photo. But if the book Dragonflies and Damselflies of the East by Dennis Paulson is any indication of the size of this challenge, it’s could be a lifelong task. The book is 538 pages long.

Dining on Dolmathes


he Mediterranean diet is one of the best in the world for health benefits. One of my favorite dishes from that region is dolmathes or stuffed grape leaves. Dolmathes are on many restau rant menus, but if you have some free time, homemade dolmathes are far su perior, as many offerings in restaurants come from a can. Grape leaves are an excellent source of beta-carotene and niacin. They also contain resveratrol, which helps pre vent cardiovascular diseases. It reduc es blood platelets’ tendency to stick together and clot. It also increases HDLCollectcholesterol.grapeleaves from any grape vines you have in your garden. And if you grow a variety of herbs you can make this dish completely from scratch. If you don’t have grapes growing in your garden, you can forage for them in wooded areas. Wild grapes grow in our woods. It’s best to pick the grape leaves earlier in the year when they are more tender, but the herbs in my garden are more abundant now. If you have to forage for wild grapevine leaves, a short walk through the woods or wild areas should yield some grape vines in trees. The leaves can be anywhere from 2 to 8 inches wide and maple-like with three lobes with whitish reddish felt underneath.Makesure their tendrils are forked at the end, as there are poisonous looka likes. Canada moonseed has a single flat crescent-shaped seed and the leaf attaches beyond the leaf base; porce lain berry has small blue, purple and turquoise berries. It never has a brown, woody vine and it has single tendrils that are not forked at the end. For the recipe, collect about 50 leaves. Snip the grape leaves leaving a ½-inch stem, put them in a pot with 2 inches of water and boil for about 10 minutes. I picked a salad bowl full of herbs: large handfuls of lemon balm, sweet basil, parsley, fennel leaves, oregano, rosemary and spearmint. Strip all the leaves from their stems and chop in a food processor. Saute one cup of rice in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until lightly brown. Add a chopped clove of garlic, two finely chopped onions, and one pound of ground meat. Add two cups of water and stir until absorbed. Add your chopped herbs, 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 cup currants and 1/4 cup pine nuts. Mix well. Fill your grape leaves with one tablespoon of filling along the bot tom of the leaf. Roll the stem end up and fold the two sides over and finish rolling the leaf. Place the end of the roll down and stack tightly in a pot. Add two cups of water and the juice of a lemon. Place a plate on top to cover the pot. Simmer 45 minutes. Squeeze lemon juice on top and enjoy. Have a gardening question? editor@bayweekly.com

Heineken has partnered with sneaker designer and customizer Dominic Ciambone to create Heine kicks—signature green, white and red high-tops with a built-in bottle open er and the company's newest brew, Heineken Silver, sloshing around in the soles. Oddity Central reported that the shoes provide a unique feeling. "I can't say I've ever designed a sneaker that contains actual beer before," Ciambone said. Probably not—and only a handful of people will ever get to wear them, with just 32 pairs scheduled to hit the market in the fourth quarter of 2022.

• A 911 operator in San Luis Obispo, California, received a call on Aug. 12 from the Zoo to You facility in Paso Robles, but when the dispatchers tried to call back, there was no answer, ABC7-TV reported. Sheriff's deputies responded to the zoo, but no one there would take credit for the call—except one 10-month-old Capuchin monkey named Route. The deputies determined that the monkey had gotten his hands on a cellphone left in a golf cart and made the call. "We're told Capuchin monkeys are very inquisitive and will grab anything and everything," the sheriff's office remarked.

"If me, the parent, was to do something like this to my child," Bazley said, "I would be called a horrible parent. I would lose my kids." She filed an offi cial complaint, and the commissioner of CPS in Texas, Jamie Masters, came to Houston to personally apologize to Bazley and her daughter. The worker was dismissed from her position on Aug. 10.

20 • CBM BAY WEEKLY • September 1 - September 8, 2022 They Buried the Lead Skydiver Gary Connery, 53, was sentenced in Oxford Crown Court in England on Aug. 16, the BBC reported, for grievous bodily harm after he threw his girlfriend, Tanya Brass, down a staircase. The assault, which shattered Brass' shoulder, took place in October 2020. The now-infamous abuser previ ously achieved his 15 minutes of fame when he served as Queen Elizabeth II's stunt double in the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games, when he and "James Bond" (another stunt dou ble) leapt out of a helicopter and para chuted into the Olympic stadium. After the stunt, Connery told the BBC it had been "an amazing experience." Perhaps he can relive it during his 18 months in prison.

Precocious • Aug. 12 started as a pretty typ ical day for 1 1/2-year-old toddler Ethan and his mom, Brittany Moore, of Senoia, Georgia. They were playing with bubbles in the backyard of their home when Ethan chased one to the fence and noticed something in the woods beyond, ABC4 News reported. When his mom asked him what he saw, he said, "Feet." Ethan had discovered 82-year-old Nina Lipscomb, who had been missing for four days. Lipscomb was alive but disoriented; her daughter said she had wandered away from a nearby home where she was visiting family. "Her sister lived here in this house, but she passed away in March," Karen Lipscomb said. The Lipscombs and the Moores got together to cele brate the little boy who probably saved Nina's life. "It took a child ... that was being worked by God," Brittany said.

Awesome! News of the Weird generally eschews world record stories, but this one seems happily adventurous. Peter McConville and Pavel "Pasha" Krechetov of Austin, Texas, and Abdullahi Salah, of Minne apolis, broke a world record by trav eling to all 50 United States in five days, 13 hours and 10 minutes, starting on May 13. They started in Vermont, KXAN-TV reported, and finished the continental part in Washington, then flew to Alaska and finally Hawaii, hav ing spent about $12,000 and 120 hours in a rental car. McConville said the Grand Canyon in Arizona was his most memorable moment of the trip: "I can't even describe what that experience was, not only because we were so tired, but we were seeing so much at once," he said. The group's record is listed by All Fifty States Club, as Guinness dis continued listing speed records in 1996.

Update Remember the fatal lightning strikes in Washington, D.C., on Aug. 6? Those shocking events were responsible for the deaths of three people, WUSA-TV reported. Amber Escudero-Kontosta this, 28, of Newbury Park, California, was with the group huddling under trees during the storm, and she was the lone survivor. Escudero-Kontostathis suffered burns down the left side of her body and initially couldn't walk, but she's now using a walker and looking forward to getting back to her job. What saved her? She and her mother, Julie Escudero, think the thick rubber soles on her Dr. Martens boots helped out. But she also credits the first responders and traveling nurses who happened to be in the park for their quick action.

Surprise, Surprise Residents of South Auckland, New Zealand, were the lucky—or not-solucky—recipients of the contents of an abandoned storage container, Stuff reported. But when they got the loot home, they discovered a surprise among the items: human remains. The new owners called police on Aug. 11, whose first priority was to identify the remains, detective inspector Tofilau Faamanuia Vaaeula said. A neighbor who previously worked at a nearby crematorium noted "a wicked smell" coming from the home: "I knew straight away and I thought, where's that com ing from," he said. His mother reported that detectives and forensic teams had been seen recoiling in shock from the scene. The investigation is ongoing. Unclear on the Concept Keisha Bazley, a mother of nine children in Houston, turned to Child Protective Services for help with her 14-year-old daughter, who had been running away and getting into trouble at school. Instead, according to Fox26 Houston, her daughter told her that a "worker had been telling her she should (become a prostitute)," so the girl vid eotaped the CPS support staff member.

Florida James Hunt, 41, and his girlfriend got into it at a Clearwater, Florida, Burger King on Aug. 13, because "the victim was not eating her food," The Smoking Gun reported. When the 53-year-old woman left the restaurant, Hunt fol lowed her and launched his cheeseburg er at the back of her head, allegedly causing her to fall over a curb onto the ground and hit her chin and lip. How did cops know? There was blood on her shirt and shorts and cheese in her hair. Hunt admitted hitting her with the cheeseburger but didn't think it caused her to fall down. Nonetheless, he was charged with felony domestic battery and held on $15,000 bond.

Just Keep Digging Stephen McCarthy, 31, a physician's assistant in Allentown, Pennsylvania, has been under suspicion of trafficking steroids and stimulants, LehighValley Live reported. Federal agents were on the case, but no charges had been filed. That is, until McCarthy got in touch with one of the DEA agents, threaten ing to disfigure and rape him, on July 8.

When they added a net and shuttlecock (rapid moving fowl) they called it Poona, after the city where it was played. British officers brought the game back to England where it was played and renamed at the Duke of Beaufort’s Badimyncgtun estate in Gloucestershire. Thankfully, it wasn’t brought to England and named for The Old Thirteenth Cheshire Astley Volunteer Rifleman Corps Inn
