The final months of 2015 are upon us. Soon we will have fewer hours of sunshine to enjoy each day. And as we welcome the cooler, crisper air to the Frederick region, we will also usher in a season full of special events and, eventually, holiday happenings. For a story detailing holiday-themed goings-on in Frederick, see the story on Page 58. And for a full list of all of the great things the region has to offer this autumn and holiday season, head to the Calendar of Events listings, starting on Page 66. One unique event, occurring for the first time this year, is something called Repudiation Day, a historic commemoration of the role that the 12 justices of the Frederick County Court played in defying the English king and Parliament 250 years ago. See more about the schedule of events for this special historical happening in the Community section, on Page 13 As our focus moves toward the indoors, parents search for appropriate activities for the little ones when playgrounds are no longer an option. One place to look is Snapology, newly opened in Frederick. Snapology offers children an environment in which to create and interact with materials, such as Lego building blocks, enabling them to explore solutions through hands-on “playful” learning. Classes are offered at a variety of schools and community centers around Frederick County. Find out more on Page 34. And finally, starting on Page 16 is a new section we’re proud to introduce to the Frederick County Guide. In each new edition of the guide starting with this one, we’ll feature useful information about our furry friends. Our inaugural Pets section includes an interview with a group of Frederick veterinarians, asking questions about how to care for our pets during the various upcoming holidays. There’s a little something for everyone in this issue of the Frederick County Guide, just as there’s always a little something for everyone all around the county. Enjoy!

PARADE WILL COMMEMORATE

F R E D E R I C K’ S ROLE IN HISTORICAL DEFIANCE

BY PAT BARRON OF THE SARGENT LAWRENCE EVERHART CHAPTER OF THE SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

In 1904, a plaque that lists the names of the 12 men who Repudiated the Stamp Act was placed in the Frederick County Courthouse

Photo courtesy of DAR of Frederick

To commemorate the 250th anniversary of what is now called Repudiation Day, the Sergeant Lawrence Everhart Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, joined by both the Frederick Chapter and the Carrollton Manor Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and the Tourism Council of Frederick County, will host a series of activities in Frederick in late November. Most activities will occur in or around Frederick’s City Hall, at 101 North Court Street. The location is within yards of where the original events played out 250 years ago, when the 12 justices of the Frederick County Court defied the English king and Parliament and ordered all business to continue without the official stamped paper required by the Stamp Act of 1765. A myriad of events is scheduled for Nov. 21 to commemorate the historical event.

The court record book in which the judges’ decision is recorded, on loan from the Maryland Archives, will be on display. A reenactment of the well-documented parade by the celebrating citizens of old Frederick Town will form up at 11 a.m., in front of City Hall. Community participation is encouraged for the parade. Area residents who possess clothing or a costume representing the mid-1700s period should wear it and help others travel back in time to the events that helped lay the foundation of the American Revolution. The parade will follow the sidewalks of old town Frederick, with a few stops along the way and will take about 45 minutes. Those participating in the parade include the Sergeant Lawrence Everhart Color Guard, the Frederick Town Fife & Drum Corps, “citizens of the town” carrying the coffin in which the Stamp Act was

symbolically laid to rest and people carrying signs expressing their feeling about the Stamp Act. Once back at City Hall, there will be a brief ceremony on the front steps, then activities will move into the City Hall meeting room. Guest speakers will relate the history of the period and the story of everyday people doing extraordinary things to secure their rights and liberties. Adults and children interested in the history of Frederick and this period in Colonial America should find the presentations informative and educational.

Frederick County, Maryland is consistently ranked as one of the “Best Places to Live” by news sources such as “The Washington Post,” CNN and websites such as Livability and Movoto. Hospice of Frederick County is one organization that makes this community such a wonderful place to live, and that fact has now been affirmed by two national organizations. Hospice of Frederick County recently received the 2015 Circle of Life Citation of Honor, presented by the American Hospital Association and National Hospital and Palliative Care Organization. HFC is one of only two recipients in the United States for the 2015 recognition, which celebrates programs that have made great strides in palliative and endof-life care. For 35 years, HFC has responded to the Frederick community’s ever-developing changes and needs by offering a variety of programs such as grief support groups, the Kline House and Camp Jamie. Serving the community continues to be the privilege of Hospice of Frederick County, and its staff and volunteers are thankful that the community trusts them to be a part of their lives during some of the most difficult times they will experience. The Circle of Life Selection Committee was “particularly impressed with Hospice’s robust culture… and exceptional community partnerships and outreach to the community.”

Laurel Cucchi, executive director of Hospice of Frederick County, was honored to accept the award for Hospice’s many strengths, including embracing a variety of cultures and belief systems. “At Hospice of Frederick County, we strive to offer services that are supportive, helpful and respectful,” Cucchi says. “Our goal is to relieve suffering, never to be the cause of it, and that’s especially important with traditionally underserved communities.”

the town, which is home to the Maryland School for the Deaf. So the hospice hosted a two-day training session with sign language interpretation and now has a small cadre of volunteers ready to assist deaf patients and families. “If we see a need, we identify and pursue it,” Cucchi said. “If it’s around death or dying or grief, it fits within our process. It’s our responsibility to do something about it, and we have the expertise.”

The following was taken from AHA’s Circle of Life publication, distributed to medical readers across the country, and includes a profile on HFC’s innovative community partnerships:

Strong community partnerships are a hallmark of HFC. The organization partners with the religious community, hosting representatives of churches, temples and mosques to learn about the delivery of hospice care. They, in turn, train others within their communities to further broaden the message. HFC works with Way Station, an innovative nonprofit that provides a medical home to people with behavioral health needs and provides palliative care services to them. It also partners with a program called Planting Hope that provides medical care and resources for the underserved and is part of regular coalition meetings with the local health department.”

“Friends and family members of hospice patients often choose to later volunteer for hospice. But this volunteer request was a little bit different — it was from the son of a man who had died in Hospice of Frederick County and was, like his parents, deaf. Hospice leaders realized it was a wonderful opportunity to build a connection with the deaf community of

Dr. Eric Bush, Medical Director of Hospice and Pain & Supportive Care, believes that HFC has grown and thrived because its leaders listen to patients and families and respond to what the community needs. “The main thing I’ve learned is to listen to my patients and my families,” Bush says. “You need to take the time to listen…if you want to make the program better.”

Hospice of Frederick County was recognized for: • Innovation in palliative and endof-life care embedded in a larger system of care • Offering a broad range of services • Approaches tailored to the partner organization needs • Outreach to traditionally underserved groups

P ETS

VETS’ ADVICE:

KEEP PETS SAFE THIS HOLIDAY The holiday season is upon us, and everyone, even our beloved pets, are getting ready to partake in all of the festivities. With the excitement that builds around Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and other celebrations toward the end of the year, it can be easy to forget the small, necessary actions and precautions to take in order to keep our pets safe. We asked the professionals at CARE Veterinary Center in Frederick to offer some advice about common issues that can crop up for our furry friends this time of year.

Q:

During the Halloween season, candy is seemingly everywhere. A popular belief is that eating chocolate is very dangerous for dogs and other pets. Is this true? Are other types of candy safe? What should pet owners do if a pet accidentally eats some Halloween candy?

A:

Yes, chocolate is very dangerous for dogs, and this holds true for all chocolate. Dark chocolate can be more toxic, but milk chocolate and white chocolate can be dangerous as well. Should your pet accidentally ingest candy, chocolate in particular, you should call animal poison control, and in severe cases, see a veterinarian immediately.

16

Q:

As Thanksgiving approaches, many folks are prepping a large turkey feast for the humans. Is it OK to feed scraps or bones from the turkey to pets?

Q:

A:

A:

You should not be feeding pets table scraps, and especially not bones. Human food can cause pancreatitis, choking, gastrointestinal (GI) upset and possible GI obstruction. Instead, you can make your fur-babies a special Thanksgiving treat using dog-safe ingredients.

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | FALL/HOLIDAY 2015

During the holidays, relatives and friends are visiting our homes more often. What’s your best advice for helping anxious pets in dealing with extra houseguests? Make sure your pet has a “safe place” to hide while houseguests are visiting. Let your guests know to ease around your pet. Let your pet come to them in their own time. Ask guests not to feed your pet unless it is treats approved by you.


PE T S

Q:

Many folks travel during the holiday season, and must leave their pets behind to be cared for by a friend or neighbor, or perhaps at a local kennel. What should pet owners be sure to do for their pets before leaving for a trip?

Q:

A:

A:

Have a plan in place for the person taking care of your pet. This includes leaving a list of medications and medical issues, information about special diets and temperaments and contact information for primary and emergency vets. Also, make sure to have a special toy, article of clothing, or special bedding to keep them comfortable. And don’t forget to give them an extra snuggle and kiss before you leave.

We’ve heard that some types of holiday decorations, such as poinsettia plants or tinsel, can be harmful to pets. Is this true, and how can we protect our pets from being harmed by our holiday decor? Poinsettias and certain types of lilies can be toxic to pets. Don’t leave decorations, poinsettias, or lilies where pets can get to them. Keep a close eye on your pets and put certain things in closed rooms when pets are unsupervised. Ingestion of decorations can cause GI upset and obstruction, which can lead to serious medical emergencies.

Q:

As the weather turns cooler, what should pet owners keep in mind with regard to caring for their pets?

A:

Even though they have fur, your pets can still get cold. Avoid leaving them outside in harsh weather. Use pet safe ice salt and keep pets on a leash when ice patches are present. They can seriously hurt their paws and are at risk of slipping, which can result in injury. Try to exercise them inside during cold winter months.

The Puritans couldn’t kill it, and neither could Ebenezer Scrooge. Christmas remains one of the most celebrated holidays across the globe. Nowhere is it bigger, brighter or flashier than in the good old USA. The current cultural phenomenon of Christmas crept its way into the national consciousness in the early 19th century. Then, Christmas fever swept over the land following the Civil War, thanks in part to some whimsical illustrations of a certain jolly old elf by Thomas Nast published in Harper’s Weekly. The unique celebration of December 25 has grown each and every year throughout the country. When it comes to Christmas celebratory excess, Frederick County can hang with the big boys. Area residents have been putting the merry in Christmas for more than 200 years. In the late 1800s, the Frederick Skids

Band adopted Christmastime as its own. Formed in 1879, the group took its name from a popular ditty of the day and declared “Friendship, Love and Fun” as its official motto. Under the direction of Professor George Edward Smith, the Skids took to roaming through Downtown Frederick leading up to Christmas and through New Year’s Eve, serenading businesses and homes, sometimes drawing several hundred revelers. Afterward, band members and their growing menagerie returned to the Skid’s headquarters, where much imbibing was intimated. When one of their after-playing socials was reported in the Frederick NewsPost, the paper felt obliged to explain, “Why the Prohibitionists did not Demonstrate.” By the early 20th century, public celebration of the Yuletide became less spontaneous and raucous, but doubtful less spectacular or fun. In the 1950s, annual parades were organized by the Chamber of Commerce

with local businesses preparing floats to escort Santa Claus through Downtown Frederick. Thousands of residents from throughout the county lined Market Street to catch a glimpse of Santa and enjoy the holiday sales and festive atmosphere. Over at the Francis Scott Key Hotel, where scores of holiday parties would be held, the lobby was extravagantly decorated and included a 20-foot fir tree. For some today, Christmas primarily is a joyous observance of a special birth that occurred more than 2,000 years ago. For many people of myriad religious orientations, it is a season of making merry and spreading cheer, of taking everything—eating, buying, decorating— over the top. Here in Frederick County, we’re still getting into the holiday spirit by gathering together as a community— sometimes in the street, other times in churches, or even in line at the mall.

MANY FAMILIES CALL FREDERICK’S

HISTORIC DISTRICT ‘HOME’ BY ROSA GARCIA

Downtown living isn’t just for the young or kid-free anymore. If you take a stroll through the quaint historic streets of the City of Frederick, you’re sure to see a mixture of young professionals, families and long-time residents living as neighbors. It’s this unique mix of young and old, families and single people that makes our city special. But why are so many families specifically opting for the hustle and bustle of small city life? Not so long ago, during the housing boom of the 2000s, there was a huge increase in desire for a large single-family home with a two-car garage in the suburbs. Once the housing market collapsed, urban living, especially multi-family housing, soared in popularity. Now that the market is beginning to level out, an urban exodus may be in our future, but not for those that feel connected to Frederick city’s charm and nearby fun.

Photos by City of Frederick

“My family decided to live in the Historic District of Frederick because we enjoy being close to several parks, a great library, museums and other fun activities,” said Marie Brantley, a Frederick resident. “We chose a downtown row home because the neighborhood is diverse. There are a mixture of young professionals, families and long-time residents that have watched the city grow and evolve.” Many families who call Downtown Frederick home are choosing to reside in a variety of row homes and town homes peppered throughout the city. Whether you marvel at the large framed historic row homes anchored by celebrated churches or enjoy the more distinctive narrow versions, you’ll soon notice that these dwellings have housed families for centuries.

These unique architectural details are just one thing that makes living in Downtown Frederick wonderful The next time you are strolling through the city, take a closer look to appreciate the homes’ 19th century influences and architectural styles. Take a selfguided walking tour through the city’s architectural history with help from a newly released guide (available online at www.cityoffrederick.com/documentcenter/ view/4701). Highlights include:

East 3rd Street, between Chapel Alley and Maxwell Avenue As the downtown core developed, many of Frederick’s 19th century brick dwellings were renovated to accommodate growth and rural to urban migration. As you walk along East 3rd Street, notice the diversity amongst the town homes. These residences range in size and grandeur, from row houses to large, detached structures. Compass and segmental arches cap many of the entryways and windows at the street level. These unique architectural details are just one thing that makes living in Downtown Frederick wonderful. Realtor Sherry Burgee of Bach & Associates, says she believes many are drawn to the Frederick area because of such dwellings, but stay for other reasons as well.

Italianate Style of Church Street Homes Architectural significance is not only expressed in public buildings, as Frederick also has a diverse selection of residential dwellings from grand, free-standing structures to elegant town homes and modest row houses. The Italianate style is identified by the façade’s decorative cornice and bracketing, and the typically narrow and tall window and door openings capped with triangular pediments detailed in the Eastlake style. This latter detail can be found on buildings throughout the city.

“Frederick is a fabulous place to live... I think people are drawn to our city because it is rich in history, but yet cultivates the urban mindset needed for continued growth and support,” Burgee said. “City dwellers now have access to housing, jobs, markets, restaurants and arts, all within a safe walkable area. I think the downtown architecture and the row houses are a great representation of our history and are the foundation of all that our community represents.”

BURGER BINGE

Greg Forsythe and Andy Rogers had a grand plan: to create the area’s best burgers and finest wings, serve them fresh and hot, and as quickly as possible. They’ve put their plan into action via Rex’s Downtown Grill, newly opened on the corner of Maxwell Alley and West Patrick Street in Downtown Frederick. The eatery features wings and tenders, burgers (full size and sliders), hot sandwiches, and big salads, plus a bevy of sides including fries (regular or sweet potato), cole slaw and mac and cheese. The perfect compliment to a great big burger and fries? Milkshakes, of course. Rex’s has those, too, in vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry. Draft and bottled beer is also available, alongside the usual fountain soda and iced tea lineup. Aside from the tasty, convenient food, Rex’s is notable for its beautiful renovation of one of downtown’s oldest buildings, formerly home to The Deli, a Frederick institution for more than three decades. www.rexsdowntowngrill.com 57 East Patrick St., Frederick 240-651-5278

The former site of the iconic New Market General Store now houses Happiloo’s variety of fun products for kids and adults alike. From puzzles to plush, wooden infant toys to magic flutes, if it’s fun, this store likely carries it for sale. Baby gear, from slings to strollers, and cool apparel can also be found in store and online. And one of the latest additions to Happiloo is on-site activities, such as a recent session on Etiquette and First Impressions, for young kids.

Gravel & Grind has what you’re looking for if you’re into slow bikes, slow coffee, and everything in between.

EDUCAT I ON

EDUCATIONAL DIVERSITY ABOUNDS

IN FREDERICK COUNTY BY ROSA GARCIA

PRIVATE?

CHARTER?

PU BLIC?

OR HOME-SCHOOL? Frederick is an oasis of educational diversity. Both public and private schools offer distinct approaches to teaching children, it’s all about finding what works best for your household. “There are many options for families to choose from in the county based on a number of factors like income, religious affiliation, creativity or unique learning styles,” said Doris Huff, certified teacher and Frederick County Public Schools substitute teacher. “I’ve seen students excel in various environments by teaching at many of the schools in the county.”

evaluate a school overall performance. Many people have debated that this standardized approach to teaching and learning can be limiting. However, the government funding is an asset when children need special education and student services, these resources are typically readily available at no cost to families.

If you’re at a standstill between public or private, think about the fundamental differences. Funding is one.

Private schools, on the other hand, are largely self-governing. This autonomy allows them to develop independent curriculums that don’t necessarily adhere to the state’s standards. They are free to administer their budget to programs that best fit their educational approach, such as a greater focus on the arts. Funding is commonly generated through tuition, grants, donations and fundraisers.

Federal, state and local governments fund public schools. As a result they have to adhere to the state’s common core standards. These education principles are a set of college- and career-ready standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in language arts and mathematics. Assessments are given during the school year to monitor students’ progress and to

An advantage that many parents gravitate towards in private schools is smaller class sizes and thus more teacher/student interaction; however, keep in mind that private school teachers are not required to meet the same certifications as public school teachers. Additionally, some private schools do not have the same funds available for special education and stu-

dent resources. If tuition is a matter of concern, don’t shy away from the private school opportunity. Many offer financial aid or assistance based on income. There are also three public charter schools in Frederick County, two Montessori and one classical school. Perhaps the easiest way to think of a charter school is as a combination of a public school and private school. They are publicly funded and independently governed. Take all the aspects you like about private schools (i.e. curriculum f lexibility) with the pros of public school (i.e. public funding and special education resources) and you have a public charter school. In order to attend any of the Frederick County charter schools, students must be admitted through a state-mandated lottery system. There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to selecting the type of school or education that works for your child. Think about what will encourage him to learn and then research what options support your educational endeavor in Frederick County.

...children’s best learning experiences come when they are engaged

AHEAD!

A more recent part of the STEM discussion is to include Art in the offerings, changing the acronym to STEAM, and adding design and creativity to the mix.

S.T.E.A.M.

BY JEN WALDO

F U L L

For the last few years, a lot of effort has gone into enhancing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) offerings to give our children the best chance of success. Our amazing public library system has opened STEM labs in branches around the county that showcase robotics, engineering and technology with open lab times and scheduled classes.

SNAPOLOGY EXPANDS OPTIONS FOR KIDS’ LEARNING THROUGH LEGO 38

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | FALL/HOLIDAY 2015

The idea is to integrate STEM contents with other disciplines, to help students “answer complex questions, investigate global issues, solve real world problems, and meet real world challenges while engaging in meaningful, purposeful, and relevant hands-on inquiry-based, problembased and/or project-based learning experiences,” according to the Maryland State Department of Education website.

These goals of statewide and national education are to understand the subject matter while at the same time being able to apply that knowledge to solve a myriad of problems and issues. That’s where Snapology of Frederick comes in. We make education fun! Using Lego® bricks and a contemporary theme, after-school enrichment has been transformed to integrate STEM learning with fun and creativity. Snapology uses the STEAM acronym, believing that art and design should not be excluded nor stressed, they should just be part of the process. By combining play with education, Snapology provides a fun environment for children to learn math, science, engineering and literacy concepts while building with familiar Lego® bricks and similar tools. Our activities are designed to reinforce the core competencies and curricula

being taught at each grade level. Research has shown that many of children’s best learning experiences come when they are engaged not simply in interacting with materials but in designing, creating, and inventing with them. Snapology activities offer students an environment where they are encouraged to create and interact with materials enabling them to explore solutions through handson “playful” learning. Snapology is excited to be in Frederick County, and build on its mission to provide children an opportunity to engage in “playful learning” activities that will stimulate their creativity and spark an interest in learning.

using laptops and robotics classes to more advanced computer programming. Current offerings include after-school enrichment classes in several Frederick County schools and the Talley Recreation Center in Downtown Frederick. Also available are Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts events and patches, preschool classes, workshops and birthday parties.

HEA LT H

WHAT & WHO

REALLY MATTER? WORDS BY LISA A. MCCROHAN, MA, LCSW-C, RYT

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | FALL/HOLIDAY 2015


HE ALT H

One of my dear friends is a nurse practitioner in palliative care. She has tended to hundreds of patients at the end of their lives. This weekend, she told me “no matter if I’m in a patient’s home or care facility, what they take with them, what they surround themselves with, are pictures. Pictures of those who matter to them.” I thought about this. I have fond memories of going to my grandparents’ home as a child. Their walls were adorned with pictures of family and dear ones – those I knew and those who came before me. What seems to matter most is surrounding ourselves with who matters, and we don’t have to wait until we are lying on our deathbed to focus on them. We often lead such busy lives that we forget who matters. We should set aside time to look at our relationships and ask, “What relationships need tending to? How can I nourish my relationship with my mom, daughter, husband, friend?” We often find ourselves flopping into bed, exhausted from a day of hurrying, thinking, “Oh, I’ll have to write that letter, make that call, send that gift next week.” I’m big on treating ourselves with compassion. We don’t have to beat ourselves up. Instead, we can have the courage treat ourselves gently and look at our lives. We can look at how we are spending our days and take back our power to live our moments guided by our hearts, aware of who matters.

Here is a really simple mindfulness practice for tending to who matters: Every weekend before the hectic week starts up, sit down and ask yourself, “Who do I want to really connect more deeply with this week?” No matter how many people come to your mind, pick just one. When you pick just one person, you are more likely to actually follow through on connecting with this person – and our brains love little successes! When you focus on this one relationship, this one person will be on your heart and in your mind during the week, and you will give deeper attention and care to that relationship. Then ask yourself, “What are ways I can connect with this person?” Make it simple. Make it specific. And then schedule it. Schedule when you will send the encouraging text to your child in college. Call your friend and schedule a walk. Schedule a “date night” with your partner. In a world full of distractions, our attention gets pulled into what is most urgent and in front of us. That often is not what – or who – is most important. What is “important but not urgent” gets pushed aside for another time. Trust me – at the end of one month, the relationships you tended to are the ones that you mindfully scheduled to tend to. With mindfulness attention, you can deepen your relationships and truly tend to who matters in your life – one dear person at a time. End 2015 feeling at peace, knowing you are tending to who matters.

+ Lisa A. McCrohan, MA, LCSW-C, RYT is a psychotherapist, compassion coach, and soulful writer. Her life’s work is about inspiring delight, compassion, and connection in our everyday lives. She facilitates mindfulness-based wellness workshops for faculty and staff at Georgetown University and offers counseling, coaching, and workshops in Frederick, where she lives with her family.

FREDERICK COUNTY GOVERNMENT

LAUNCHES ‘SENIORS FIRST’ INITIATIVE BY ROBIN SANTANGELO, FREDERICK COUNTY PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER

The number of people aged 65 & older is expected to grow at twice the rate in the county than it will nationally, & double the pace of the rest of Maryland Taking steps to make Frederick County more senior-friendly, County Executive Jan Gardner announced in September an initiative to connect services with seniors and plan for a rapidly growing senior population. She also appointed members to a newly created Seniors First steering committee that will take advantage of the opportunities and challenges of this growing segment of the county. The number of people aged 65 and older is expected to grow at twice the rate in the county than it will nationally, and double the pace of the rest of Maryland. “One of my key priorities as the first county executive is to help our seniors realize their potential, stay in the comfort of their homes as they mature and continue to contribute to our community in meaningful ways,” Gardner stated. “I plan to help meet the growing needs of our seniors and utilize volunteers to meet the needs of the elderly.

Gardner also reviewed the progress made since she took office in December 2014 to connect seniors to support services, including: • Expansion of the Meals on Wheels program to Jefferson, Lewistown and Middletown, so that no senior in Frederick County should have to go hungry • Work by the Maryland Access Point program that helps seniors find long-term support • Progress in the Health Department Adult Evaluation and Review Services program that helps seniors age in their homes

RSVP of Frederick County supports volunteer organizations by recruiting and matching older volunteers to meet the particular needs of each agency. The skills, interests and life experiences of volunteers are matched with opportunities offered within the non-profit community and various government agencies. Volunteers are able to select their assignments and determine their hours of service. “I welcome the return of the RSVP program to Frederick County to utilize the life interests and skills of our seniors to make a difference in our county,” Gardner stated.

• Creation of a Taxi Access Program for TransIT-plus customers

+

• Continuation of the fight to protect seniors at the CitizensMontevue facility

For more information on Seniors First, contact Special Administrative Director Margaret Nusbaum

“My newly appointed Seniors First team is a group of professionals and advocates who I am confident will do a great job working for the best interests of our seniors. The group is comprised of a new nonprofit senior advocacy group, members of the Commission on Aging and people with expertise serving seniors.”

Gardner also welcomed the return of the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) under the auspices of the Asian American Center. She commended the center’s Executive Director Elizabeth Chung and Director Carol Haag for their plan to work toward ensuring a bright future for seniors in the county.

at 301-600-7700 or via e-mail at mnusbaum@FrederickCountyMD.gov. To volunteer or find out more about RSVP Frederick, call 301-600-7900 or connect via e-mail at rsvp@aacfmd.org.

TRANSIT’S EMPLOYER CONNECTION PROGRAM

THE SECRET INGREDIENT TO ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT BY ADRIENNE MORETZ, COMMUNITY RELATIONS MANAGER, TRANSIT SERVICES OF FREDERICK COUNTY

It’s no secret that Frederick County is booming. With an expected future job growth rate of 36 percent, an unemployment rate of only 4.3 percent and a focus on biosciences and technology, the county now needs to emphasize the great transportation benefits readily available to employers. TransIT’s free Employer Connection Program help connects Frederick County businesses to commuters with free consultation, advice, strategies and tools. Transportation management solutions help employers with recruitment, retention and employee satisfaction. The program helps employers implement strategies that can produce a 5 percent to 30 percent reduction in trips at the given worksite. Other benefits include increased productivity and morale, less stress and absenteeism and easier recruitment. Benefits seem obvious for both the employee and employer, but there are also plenty of benefits for the city where the business is located. Public transportation moves more people in less space, naturally resulting in economic advances for cities that invest in transportation.

48

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | FALL/HOLIDAY 2015

Some interesting findings from a 2013 study by Robert B. Noland and Daniel G. Chatman of the Department of City and Regional Planning at the University of California, Berkeley, identifies specific economic benefits include: • Adding four seats per 1,000 residents to public rail and buses can result in 320 more employees per square mile, or a 19 percent increase • A 10% expansion in transit service can result in a wage increase of $53 to $194 per worker per year in the city center. A quote from an August 14, 2013 article by Eric Jaffe in The Atlantic (“Public Transit Is Worth Way More to a City Than You Might Think”) stated it best: “If showing that system expansion leads to more riders and less congestion is good, and showing that it reduces pollution and improves public safety is great, then showing in big numbers how much economic growth will occur should be gold.” The statistical benefits of a good transportation network combined with Frederick’s growing economy mean that integrating transportation benefits into the workplace shouldn’t be an afterthought; it should be known as the secret ingredient.

PARK CONTINUES TO HONOR

KEHNE AS CIVIL SERVANT AND SPORTS ENTHUSIAST

BY MAXANN KELLER

The entrance to Max Kehne Memorial Park, a longtime landmark on West Seventh Street in Frederick, sits at a small near an exit ramp for U.S. Route 15 South. Nearby, a simple wooden sign displays the park’s name in bright white letters on a sturdy foundation. The sign was recently rehabbed as part of a makeover of the park that began last summer. Many area residents are unaware of how or why the park was named after Kehne, a well-known figure around Frederick for his astounding aptitude at fast-pitch softball and devotion to civic duty. Kehne grew up as a hard-working farm boy in Walkersville and graduated from Frederick High School. When he wasn’t helping his family with daily chores on the farm, he would indulge his interest in softball.

Practice surely paid off when Kehne was asked to pitch on the regional travel fast-pitch softball league for The Dr. Pepper team. The youngest player to take the mound in the allmen’s athletic division, he was only 15 years old when he debuted with a 2-hitter and a 10-0 win against the B-26 Wings. His fastpitch game was unmatched. Thus began the newly appointed, long term nickname, “Fireball Kehne.” He found his niche and was asked to continue playing, only strengthening his game and reputation.

“He used to just pass free time by pitching a ball around the backyard and up against the barn side,” Joann Kehne said of her late husband. “This was when he wasn’t working hard on the farm, of course.”


A RT S & LE I S UR E Another well-known fast-pitch star, Eddie Reiner, had his eye on Kehne as he rose to become a Frederick fast-pitch legend. Reiner toured the country with his four-person team and lead the squad with an impressive trick — pitching a perfect strike, blindfolded, from second base. His trick didn’t impress Kehne, though, and Reiner was utterly defeated by Kehne when their two teams went head to head. “He was said to have made Eddie look like a fool,” Jeff Kehne said, recalling the many stories of his father’s athleticism. “Dad was one of the very few who could beat him.” He went on to play semi-professional ball with the Trenton Democratic League in Baltimore and the local team, Economy Oil. Kehne was personally approached by the Cleveland Indians to attend a try-out for Major League Baseball, but Kehne denied the offer, declaring his allegiance to stay home to work the land with his family and serve in his beloved hometown. Aside from becoming a household name around the Frederick area, Kehne earned a degree from Bliss Electrical Engineering School in Bethesda, and became the supervisor of maintenance at Hood College. This position lead to his involvement in a number of local activities, including his role as the Gov. Thomas Johnson High School football announcer, president of the Frederick Exchange Club, and his responsibilities for hanging the beloved Christmas lights around town for the holidays.

“He was always a public servant,” Jeff Kehne said of his father. After many years, Max was elected to the role as a City of Frederick alderman in 1970. As an alderman, Kehne declared necessary action for a local parking deck initiative and proposed a project for biking trail systems. Both projects were not very popular with the general public, but gained support after time proved the necessity to the city’s growth. He was approached to run for mayor, but Kehne never followed through. “He was a much-respected man with no enemies,” his wife, Joann, said. “He was so personable and liked by everybody he met.” Another project of Kehne’s included a collaboration with then-Mayor Ronald Young and Guy (Rabbit) Remsburg to dedicate a prestigious crop of land for Frederick County residents to enjoy outdoor athletics (primarily softball). The plan immediately went into action, but Kehne never got the chance to see the final product. Kehne was killed by a drunk driver on April 19, 1973. In a Frederick News Post article published at the time, then-Mayor Young said one of his last conversations with Kehne was concerning the park’s progress. Max Kehne Memorial Park was dedicated to the Frederick city servant on May 22, 1977, four years after his death.

This year celebrates the 38th year that the park has served as a local landmark and an active location for more than 17 different Little League and adult co-ed softball teams during the spring, summer and fall. A recent makeover for the park included new, sturdy computerized lights, replacing the bulbs formerly mounted on wooden rods. The outfields are now lined with a chain-link fence reaching nearly 6 feet tall. Asphalt pathways wind throughout the complex, guiding walkers, runners and athletes around the area composed of tennis courts, a football field and two groomed dirt diamonds. While most of the projects to improve the facility began in summer 2014, the work was completed in summer 2015. Max Kehne’s name can be found in the Maryland State Fast Pitch Hall of Fame as well as the Alvin G. Quinn Frederick Hall of Fame. Former Mayor E. Paul Magaha was quoted in the Frederick News Post as saying the City of Frederick was fortunate to have a man like Kehne living and serving this city. At the entrance of the park, a plaque displays a picture of Max and states the four titles he earned throughout his life: public servant, family man, athlete and sports enthusiast. “That hits the nail on the head. That was Dad,” his son, Jeff, says.

HOLIDAY HAPPENINGS IN HISTORIC FREDERICK BY CHARISSA HIPP, DIGITAL MARKETING AND MEDIA RELATIONS MANAGER, VISIT FREDERICK The holiday season truly is a magical time in Frederick County, Maryland. In November and December, the streets of historic Downtown Frederick are set aglow with twinkling white lights. Annual events showcase festive holiday decorations and celebrate the sounds of the season. Unique shops and boutiques throughout the county become popular destinations for finding that perfect gift. And there’s no shortage of holiday happenings or tasty treats to delight the young and young-at-heart. More than 200 specialty shops, art galleries and restaurants can be found in Downtown Frederick. You’re bound to find great gifts in at least one of them. Specialty shops carry home furnishings, clothing, outdoor gear, pet items, handcrafted jewelry, makeup and skincare, and specialty food items such as olive oil and vinegar, handmade chocolates, cheese and wine and more. Need a list of downtown shops? Check out the Downtown Frederick Partnership’s website at www.downtownfrederick.org. If you’re still stumped in finding that perfect gift, give a Downtown Frederick gift card, available for any amount between $10 and $500. It’s good for more than 150 downtown stores, restaurants, theaters and galleries (check the partnership’s website for details). You can purchase a gift card seven days a week at the Frederick Visitor Center, 151 S. East St. The calendar of events is filled with holiday happenings throughout the months of November and December in Frederick County. There are tree lightings and small town celebrations as well as large-scale events and holiday performances. The Maryland Christmas Show at the Great Frederick Fair grounds (Nov. 20-22; 2729) will get you in the holiday spirit with handcrafted holiday treasures. If you’d love to see the way Frederick’s clustered

spires decorate for the holidays, don’t miss the annual Candlelight Tour of Historic Houses of Worship (Dec. 28). Most sites on the self-guided tour offer special programs, angelic choirs and nativity scenes. The annual Kris Kringle Procession (Dec. 11) through Downtown Frederick is a popular family festivity. It features German/English characters of yesteryear and includes the lighting of the city’s Christmas tree. Another fun family event suitable for the whole family is Museums By Candlelight (Dec. 12). On that day, historic sites and museums throughout Frederick County offer free programming, entertainment and open houses exploring winter traditions. Visit sites such as the Museum of Frederick County History, where you can catch the last day for the Festival of Trees. Why not get in the holiday spirit and learn a little history along the way! If you have young children who would find a train ride with Santa to be absolutely magical, sign up for the Santa Train (Nov. 28-29; Dec. 5-6, 19-20) on the Walkersville Southern Railroad. Hot chocolate and cookies are complimentary. There’s no shortage of performances throughout the holiday season, starting with Handel’s Messiah and More (Nov. 21-22) at Hood College. At the Weinberg Center for the Arts, catch the unique Frederick’s Tuba Christmas (Nov. 28) or see the Nutcracker Ballet (Dec. 11-13) or “A Christmas Carol,” (Dec. 18-20) performed by Maryland Ensemble Theatre. The National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton also has a Winter Concert Series at the Shrine weekly (Nov. 29-Dec. 12). Find out details for these events and more at www.visitfrederick.org/events.

BURKITTSVILLE Burkittsville is a virtually unchanged example of an American townscape of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, when the town was a service center for the rural area around it. Today, Main Street’s buildings are still bordered by fields of crops and dairy farms, although there are no longer any commercial establishments in the town. Burkittsville became closely involved with the Civil War when forces of the Union and Confederate armies engaged in the Battle of Crampton’s Gap, a bloody prelude to the Battle of Antietam. MAYOR

EMMITSBURG Emmitsburg, a quiet town nestled at the foot of the mountains, offers peace and tranquility. Incorporated in the early 1800s, Emmitsburg was the home of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. She established the first Catholic school in the U.S., that grew into St. Joseph’s College. The property is now home to the National Fire Academy and Homeland Security. A short drive away is Mount Saint Mary’s University. In Emmitsburg you can relax but still be within driving distance to major cities such as Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Harrisburg.

MIDDLETOWN Middletown is a small, rural community steeped in American history. It is located in the beautiful Middletown Valley that stretches between the Catoctin Mountains on the east and South Mountain on the west. A young Lt. George Washington, while surveying the South Mountain area, reported that the valley to the east was one of the most beautiful places he had ever seen. Middletown continues to evolve from a settlement of farmers and ranchers to one of tradesmen, craftsmen, businessmen, clergymen, commuters and retired folk—without losing its agricultural roots. From the stately old Victorian-style homes and soaring church steeples to the rustic dairy farms and modern housing developments, residents find in Middletown a refuge where they can enjoy small-town life as it used to be.

WALKERSVILLE Walkersville is a combination of two villages that were settled by German immigrants in the mid 1700s and early 1800s. By the late 1800s, the villages of Georgetown and Walkersville had grown so intertwined that it made sense to combine them into one entity, which was named Walkersville. Today, Walkersville aggressively pursues fiscal responsibility, recycling projects, and innovation. In 1995, it was credited with having the first State Police bicycle patrol in the nation. There are four schools, residential developments, a shopping center, several businesses and institutions, and numerous restaurants in the town. Walkersville has managed a rapid population growth wisely, enabling it to maintain a friendly, small-town atmosphere. BURGESS

WOODSBORO Early history suggests that the Woodsboro area was a hunting and trapping ground for a wandering tribe of Susquehanna Indians. From early times, the settlement was located at a crossroads on the Indian trail running from the Chesapeake Bay to the mountains. When the stagecoach became the primary mode of transportation, the place became an important stop on its itinerary. Today, Woodsboro is still primarily an agricultural area, but an important industry is centered on the three lime quarries that border the town. BURGESS Gary Smith
