And enjoy a sample or two while you’re at it. The springtime is an ideal time to get out there and enjoy yourself. One of the springtime’s most popular events in all of Frederick is the annual Frederick Reads, a month long celebration of authors and books, sponsored by Frederick County Public Libraries.

#FindYourPark

IN FREDERICK COUNTY!

BY CHARISSA HIPP, DIGITAL MARKETING AND MEDIA RELATIONS MANAGER, VISIT FREDERICK

The National Park Service (NPS) is turning 100 this year and there is no better place to celebrate the centennial than in your own backyard!

12

Hikers can enjoy challenging treks through the mountains leading to breathtaking overlooks, or laid-back scenic walks along nature trails, and everything in between whether it’s at Catoctin Mountain Park or along the Appalachain National Scenic Trail.

Frederick County is home to six NPS units and nearly 100 National Register of Historic Places properties and historic districts. It is also part of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area.

Follow 15.7 miles of towpath in Frederick County through the C&O Canal National Historical Park, which is also part of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail, on foot or by bicycle. In its entirety, the canal stretches from Georgetown to Cumberland for a total of 184.5 miles of adventure.

The NPS and the National Park Foundation have launched the #FindYourPark initiative for the centennial. It strives to engage younger visitors and help them experience and connect to both traditional and less typical sites nationwide. The centennial is the perfect time to embrace parklands right here in Frederick County and #FindYourPark!

The Frederick Historic District is a 50-block area on the National Register of Historic Places, offering more than 80 independently owned shops and restaurants, plus great art and architecture. The vibrant, walkable downtown hosts hundreds of special events throughout the year. If you prefer towns on a smaller scale with hometown appeal, you’ll enjoy the Brunswick Historic District,

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | SPRING 2016


CO MMUN I T Y

Emmitsburg Historic District, Middletown Historic District, and New Market Historic District as well. Speaking of historic places, history buffs can brush up on their Civil War knowledge at Monocacy National Battlefield. A selfguided, 6-mile driving tour begins at the Visitor Center, which also houses a large museum with artifacts and an electric map. C&O Canal National Historical Park is best known for its recreational opportunities but also has rich historical roots. As part of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail, you’ll be following in the footsteps of George Washington. Learn about transportation and life on the Canal at the Brunswick Visitor Center. Also in Frederick County, the War Correspondents Memorial Arch, under the jurisdiction of Antietam National Battlefield, sits atop Crampton’s Gap as a memorial to journalists killed in combat.

National Park units in Frederick County offer programs throughout the year, but there are a few tips for especially good times to visit. Every April, the NPS celebrates National Park Week by offering special programs. All parks nationwide will offer free admission during National Park Week 2016. NPS sites in Frederick County are free year-round because none of them currently charge entrance fees. Be sure to visit www.nps.gov or visit individual park websites to see what’s happening locally. August 25 will be the date of the 100th anniversary of the NPS, so look for special activities then as well. #FindYourPark is about more than just national parks. Frederick County has several state parks with history and recreational opportunities, as well as Maryland’s only state battlefield, South Mountain. If that’s not enough, you’ll find county and municipal parks throughout the county. Make 2016 the year to #FindYourPark in Frederick County.

ASL HELPS PARENTS COMMUNICATE WITH THEIR BABIES BY ADRIENNE KING, M.S.ED Signing with your baby is the idea of using Sign Language, American Sign Language (ASL), or manual sign systems to support communication with babies and toddlers. The idea is that when parents and caregivers use signs with babies, the babies will start to learn the signs and use them to communicate as well. Babies will use the signs to support their communication, not to replace spoken language. Many parents have found this form of communication to be beneficial. Here’s more information about baby ASL:

Q:

It is cute to see a baby signing, but what is the point? Is there a benefit? Research has shown that babies develop the ability to move their hands (i.e. the ability to produce signs) much earlier than they develop their vocal processes (i.e. the ability to produce words or speak). On average, babies start speaking at about 10 to 12 months of age, but start signing at about 8 to 10 months. By providing babies with the tools necessary for this manual communication, babies will be able to offer their parents, families and caregivers insight into what they need and want earlier than they would be able to talk. This provides a huge benefit to families. Babies can use signs to communicate exactly what they need before they become frustrated and cry or melt down. The time used signing and the lack of frustration for parent and child also helps promote bonding. Babies that sign often have larger vocabularies at a younger age and there are some preliminary findings that IQ scores are positively affected.

Q:

Will this delay my daughter’s speech? I want her to talk, too! Research by Goodwyn, Acredolo, and Brown (2000) shows that babies that sign actually speak sooner and with larger vocabularies. Using ASL is using language, so you are starting her language production sooner. By the time your daughter is able to start speaking, she will already know so many words and concepts from signing that when she begins to speak her language development will already be ahead.

Q:

Is this just a new fad? No, researchers such as Dr. Joseph Garcia and Dr. Linda Acredolo have been studying the effects of using sign language with hearing children since the 1980s. Some of their programs and curricula have been taught since then. There are also accounts that say this concept goes back to a researcher in the 1800s that noticed Deaf children with Deaf parents were signing to their parents and able to communicate much earlier and with larger vocabularies than

14

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | SPRING 2016

hearing children with hearing parents at the same age. This phenomenon went largely unstudied until the 1970s.

Q:

There are so many books and programs options out there, which one do I choose? There are a lot of programming options. The Frederick area is a great place to see and learn American Sign Language, (ASL) which is a full, natural language. Using a natural language like ASL with your child offers him the opportunity to have a base to build on later if he decides to continue to learn later in life and become bilingual. There are invented sign language programs for babies, such as Baby Signs, but these could be confusing if your child sees other signs in the community or if you are looking for more signs in various resources. Finding a program that specifically teaches in ASL is usually the best option.

Q:

Where can I find a class locally? There are classes running now through Dancing Bear Toys and Gifts’ Language Lab series. Language Lab: Baby ASL – has registration online or in the store, located on Patrick Street in Downtown Frederick. There are often classes at the local libraries or through Maryland School for the Deaf. The best way to find the classes is on Frederick calendars and online. Go to the Programs & Events tab at dbeartoys.com. Are there online resources? Yes, www.signingtime.com is a great resource. Also look for that company’s CDs and DVDs at the public library carries. Sign2Me is Joseph Garcia’s company that started developing baby signing materials in the 1980s. Another great website for looking up individual signs is www.lifeprint.com, which has a dictionary with pictures and video clips for parents. www.ASLnook.com is a website created by a Deaf family that shows great videos of their young daughters signing.

Q:

+

Adrienne King, M.S. Ed. is a Maryland State Certified teacher in Deaf Education, Special Education and Dance. She has 20 years of teaching experience with ASL, parent education, early childhood education, literacy and dance. She is currently working on teaching her curriculum integrating movement and literacy in an outreach capacity.

PE T S

IT’S TIME TO SPRING CLEAN…

YOUR PETS!

Now is the time for spring cleaning, but your house is not the only thing that could use a shape up this season. It’s likely your pets could use a spring cleaning, too, whether it’s a good cleanout of your dog or cat bed, or a freshening for your gerbil cage or fish tank. Your furry friend himself could probably use a good grooming and nail trim, too. And when all of that cleaning is through, some new toys are likely in order, to freshen up your pet’s playing game.

Luckily for those who live in or around Frederick County, there are several pet-focused and pet-friendly locations to serve you and your pet. From dog parks, where Fido can let out some pent-up energy with comrades to pet boutiques where you can pick up fresh supplies, pet beds and food, this area has plenty to choose from. Several places offer on-site or mobile grooming as well.

PURFECT PAWS 4322 Reels Mill Road, Frederick 240-372-0861; purfectpaws@comcast.net

Here’s a roundup of a few Frederick County pet-focused places that may boost your favorite friend’s mood this spring:

Purfect Paws offers mobile dog and cat grooming services via a fully equipped mobile pet-grooming salon. They drive to you and give your cat or dog the attention it deserves. All breeds of dogs and cats are accepted, and prices range from $65-$85 depending on size and coat.

CLUB DOGZ

CENTRAL DAWGMA

Eastgate Center, 1202 East Patrick St, Frederick 301-846-7771; centraldawgma.com

Clug Dogz offers a variety of services for dog owners in Frederick County. At its doggie day care, owners can drop off their dogs during the day so they can run, play, wrestle or maybe just sleep. Staff members help dogs socialize and play indoors or outdoors in water sprinklers or on-site pools. Grooming, including brush, cut, nails, ears and teeth cleaning, are also offered. Also on staff is a dog trainer with several years of experience helping dogs and owners with aggression issues, separation anxiety, and other problems. Every Saturday, the Club Dogz opens its doors for use of its indoor/outdoor dog park, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The cost is $5 per dog, and all are checked for vaccines and spaying/ neutering. Staff supervision is included. Overnight cage-less dog-sitting, dog parties, pet portraits and pet sitting services are also available.

A feature of this Frederick staple is its self-serve dog wash, where they provide everything but the dog and they clean up the mess afterward. Price varies, depending on the size of your dog, and no appointment is necessary. Use their tubs, dryers, shampoo, brushes, nail trimmers, eye and ear wipes, towels and aprons to freshen up your pet. Or pay a bit extra and let them do the dirty work while you wait. Knowledgeable staff members also supply advice on tasty and healthy treats, snack, and meals sold on-site. Professional grooming and training services are offered at Central Dawgma’s Hagerstown location.

REVERSE MORTGAGES

CAN PROVIDE SOME SENIORS WITH FINANCIAL RELIEF BY C. HILLAL EASTBURN, ATLANTIC HOME EQUITY

Reflecting back on choices I have made, goals I have set and obtained (or not), I am grateful for all the teachers I have had and for all the lessons learned. I live in a lovely home in a wonderful neighborhood in Frederick, and have a wonderful daughter and grandson. I am blessed and have much for which to be thankful, but the path to these blessings has taken many twists and turns.

loans: A Standard HECM and a Saver HECM. The HECM Saver loan has lower upfront costs, but does not provide as much cash to the lender as the HECM Standard loan. A Proprietary Reverse Mortgage is designed for people with a very high value home.

I married young (too young, according to my parents), and managed to complete my education, eventually earning a Doctorate in Education from the University of Virginia. After retiring from 40 years in education in 2012, I developed squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue and was successfully treated at John’s Hopkins a year later. One year after that, in 2014, my husband and I divorced. All of my retirement plans were shattered; I began to make plans to downsize into a small condo and reconstruct my life, grateful for my health and the love of my family and friends.

These mortgages are called “reverse” because

As I began exploring my options, I noticed ads for reverse mortgages. After some research, I communicated with seven agents from companies based in four different states. I gathered all the information I could find about reverse mortgages and consulted with as many people as I could find to learn more. I obtained a copy of “Use Your Home to Stay at Home,” the official reverse mortgage consumer booklet approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and published by the National Council on Aging (NCOA) in 2013. The availability of reverse mortgages commenced in 1988 when President Ronald Reagan signed the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) Reverse Mortgage Bill. The purpose of this bill was to provide a means for senior citizens, ages 62 or older, to remain in their own homes with lesser financial burden. There are several types of reverse mortgages. A Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM), offered by HUD and insured by the FHA, is the most popular. There are two types of HECM

instead of the borrower having to pay money each month to the lender to eventually pay off the loan, the person taking the reverse mortgage receives money from a lender in one of several ways, depending on what best suits their needs.

Where does the money come from? A reverse mortgage draws from the equity in your home. Whereas in a traditional mortgage, the equity in your home increases as you continue to make monthly mortgage payments, a reverse mortgage decreases the equity of your home. The good news is that with the restructuring of reverse mortgages that occurred after the financial collapse of the mortgage and real estate industries in 2007-08, you can never owe more on your reverse mortgage than the value of your home, because reverse mortgages are insured by FHA/HUD. If you sell your home and there is still equity after your Reverse Mortgage is paid, you will receive that equity. If you pass away, the reverse mortgage must be paid and if there is equity remaining, your heirs will receive that equity. The money that you receive from a reverse mortgage is tax-free.


REA L E S TAT E

The borrower may receive a lump sum initially or she may elect to receive a monthly amount to help cover living expenses or a combination of both lump sum and monthly amounts. The borrower may elect not to receive any money initially and keep the account open as a line of credit to be available whenever it is needed for unexpected home repairs or medical expenses. The balance of a reverse mortgage increases as the borrower withdraws funds. Some people’s perceptions about reverse mortgages are most likely based on some truths about early abuses and lingering fears and misinformation. Before the 2007-08 federal regulations were put in place, some lenders charged exorbitant fees; now fees are capped. Borrowers were not advised that they must continue to pay their real estate taxes and maintain homeowners insurance; now borrowers must participate in pre-lending counseling, provided by an independent, federally approved counselor prior to applying for a reverse mortgage so that they fully understand the benefits, alternatives and obligations. In order to further protect the borrower from negative consequences of not paying taxes and insurance, the borrower may include a Lifetime Expectancy Set-

Aside (LESA) that automatically pays the taxes and insurances for them. I decided that a reverse mortgage was the best solution for me and was able to withdraw enough equity to pay the settlement agreement with my now ex-husband and remain in my lovely home. A year later I withdrew another lump sum and paid off a large credit card debt and bought a new car. Without having to make mortgage payments, pay credit card fees or a car payment, my monthly income allows me to enjoy my retirement life. I am so convinced many others would benefit from having a reverse mortgage that I obtained my license as a mortgage loan officer and was hired by the company that I selected for my own reverse mortgage, Atlantic Home Equity, so that I may help others.

SMALL BUSINESSES GET A BOOST

FROM LOCAL, STATE AGENCIES The Frederick County Office of Economic Development, with support from County Executive Jan Gardner, announced earlier this year that a Small Business Loan Guarantee Program (SBLG) is available for existing and aspiring small businesses in Frederick County. The initial funding of this program will be provided by the existing funds remaining from the Frederick County Revolving Loan Fund, which stopped issuing new loans in 2011.

“This is another way of showing that Frederick County means business,” County Executive Gardner stated. “We support our small businesses and want to give them the help they need to succeed.” Frederick County Office of Economic Development Director Helen Propheter said that the end goal of the program is create and support job growth in the county, and to “support jobs that pay family-supporting wages and provide more local job opportunities. This program is another tool in our toolbox that helps us achieve these results.” The purpose of the program is to provide financing assistance for growth-related expansion projects for existing businesses and for aspiring entrepreneurs. The loan guarantee can be used for real estate, refinancing secured debt, machinery and equipment and working capital. It provides up to an 80 percent loan guarantee with a commitment capped at $50,000. There is no loan amount maximum and the terms and interest rate are to be determined by the lender with whom the business is working. In order to maximize resources, the business must be located in Frederick County or agree to locate here prior to settlement. It must be a start-up or early stage for-profit company with 100 or fewer employees. Borrowers must provide at least 5 percent equity, and preference is given to Frederick County’s targeted industries or high-growth industries. The program will be administered by the Frederick County Office of Economic Development and managed by a volunteer-driven Loan Guarantee Committee. Lenders will serve as the primary contact for prospective Frederick County Small Business Loan Guarantee clients. The program requires that an applicant be approved for conventional bank financing contingent upon a loan guarantee before applying. For more information, including administrative guidelines and a Small Business Loan Guarantee Application, call the Frederick County Office of Economic Development at 301-600-1058.

STATE PROGRAM OFFERS ‘GAP FUNDING’ As part of the Sustainable Communities Act, the State of Maryland developed a program in which public and private investments and partnerships help to develop healthy economies with growth practices that conserve resources and appreciate historical and cultural resources. There are four designated Sustainable Communities in Frederick County – Brunswick, Emmitsburg, Middletown and Thurmont. The State of Maryland's Neighborhood BusinessWork's loan program provides gap financing (or subordinate financing) to new or expanding small businesses and nonprofit organizations in these communities.

ELIGIBLE PROJECTS & USES OF FUNDS • Mixed-use projects combining residential and commercial uses in the same building • New construction or rehabilitation • Machinery and equipment • Certain other costs associated with opening or expanding a small business • Real estate acquisition • Manufacturing • Service providers • Retail

AMELUNG: FREDERICK’S OWN

HISTORIC GLASS-MAKER

BY MARY ROSE BOSWELL, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF FREDERICK COUNTY

America has long been known as “the land of opportunity,” and this is the story of one individual who traveled all the way from Breman, Germany, to Maryland to set up a successful business in 1784. In the 1780s, the United States was a new and independent nation. Its abundance of natural resources and manufacturing opportunities attracted many investors and craftspeople from overseas. One of Maryland’s most talented immigrants was Johann Friedrich Amelung (1741-1798). After the Revolutionary War, America looked very promising to entrepreneurs like Johann Friedrich (whose name was anglicized to John Frederick after arriving in the U.S.). Amelung’s area of expertise was in glass making. Today, when we dine and shop in Frederick, we take glassware for granted, but in the 18th century, it was highly prized. Americans drank from glassware that was designed for every kind of beverage, from rum to punch. They wore glass buttons on their clothes and glass jewelry. Sugar bowls were made of glass, as were presentation pieces to celebrate a special achievement or occasion. Most of these goods were still imported from Britain, but America’s craftspeople began experimenting with glass making as early as 1608 in Jamestown, Va. Three glassmaking concerns began in Frederick County in the 18th century, all preceding Amelung’s, and all closing before he arrived. With 11 years of experience in the business, Amelung was confident he would do well in the United States. He had learned details of the trade from his brother, who had leased a mirror and window glass factory in Germany. The business ran into trouble, however, which prompted Johann Friedrich to branch out on his own. Amelung chose Maryland as the site for his new investment, perhaps due to a meeting with a Baltimore merchant while in Bremen. To prepare for the journey, Amelung sold his wife’s mortgaged farm for about $2,500, with the understanding from his wife and her sister that the money would be used to purchase land in America. He also raised £10,000 from Bremen investors. With that capital, he purchased equipment for three glass ovens, hired trained workers, and paid for transportation via the ship Fame. Upon arrival in Baltimore on Aug. 31, 1784, he carried letters of introduction from influential Americans in Europe, intended for presentation to political leaders such as Thomas Johnson, the

26

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | SPRING 2016

first governor of Maryland and a member of Congress; Charles Carroll of Carrollton, one of the wealthiest men in Maryland, and William Paca, governor of Maryland. Both Carroll and Paca were also signers of the Declaration of Independence. Benjamin Crockett, the Baltimore merchant whom Amelung had met in Germany, helped him find a site for his new company. Frederick County was chosen due to many favorable conditions. The land offered an abundance of trees for fuel and potash, clay and sand with a high silica content. It was close to major cities and potential markets, and it had access to navigable water to transport the raw materials and finished products. The area was also heavily populated with German immigrants. Probably most important of all, it had a glassworks that was available for purchase. In November 1784, Amelung purchased an existing glass manufactory from the estate of Conrad Foltz. The New Bremen Glass Manufactory, located near Frederick Town, opened in 1785 and soon began producing “Window Glasses of two sorts, and also green and white hollow ware.” Soon after, Amelung expanded his line to include bottles, drinking glasses, optical glasses and looking glasses.” In addition, he could decorate the products with “Devices, Cyphers, Coats of Arms, or any other Fancy Figures” cut in the glass. During the peak of his business, his products were distributed in Frederick Town, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York. One of his most creative and effective strategies to gain profit was his line of presentation pieces that he designed for people of influence. In 1789 he traveled to Mount Vernon, where he presented a pair of goblets to Gen. George Washington. Four months later, President Washington approved a 10 percent duty on glass imports, thus reducing Amelung’s competition overseas. To help his business — and others — Amelung proposed that manufacturers be exempt from taxes, that their employees be excused from military service and civil arrest (and the employer be held accountable), and that loans of at least one-third the value of the manufactory be made to be interest-free for 5 years or more. To protect the public interest, a board of supervisors would oversee the manufacturers. He argued that companies such as his contributed to the nation’s economy and health. Amelung didn’t just create a company, he


also created a community, with houses for his employees and an “English School” so that the children could receive a well-rounded education including French, English and German, writing, math and music. Certainly he added to the area’s population with trained craftspeople; by 1790 he reported that he was employing between 400 and 500 individuals. In 1790, however, weather conditions took their toll on the business. A strong wind caused the collapse of houses and nearby mills. His company also suffered from a devastating fire. High shipping costs and changing fashions were other contributors to the downward spiral, and the company closed in 1794, 10 years after it opened. While this is not a “rags to riches” story, Amelung’s pieces are revered for their unparalleled classical elegance. The cut wares made at the New Bremen Glass Manufactory are among the finest in this country. Examples of New Bremen glasswork are in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Winterthur Museum and the Corning Museum of Glass. They can also be seen at the Historical Society of Frederick County in Downtown Frederick.

ELIMINATING ACHIEVEMENT GAPS:

A CALL TO ACTION

BY DR. TERRY ALBAN, SUPERINTENDENT, FREDERICK COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Student achievement in school systems across America — and here in Frederick County — varies according to students’ ethnicity or race, special needs and socioeconomic conditions. At Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS), where student achievement surpasses state and national averages, lower academic achievement by any student groups is considered unacceptable and a clear call to action. FCPS is committed to ensuring strong achievement for all our students. That’s the promise of public education.

28

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | SPRING 2016


EDUCAT I ON

ACHIEVEMENT GAPS: UNACCEPTABLE These are examples of persistent and unacceptable gaps in student achievement: • Students receiving free or reduced-price meals are at least twice as likely in math and three times as likely in reading as their better-off peers to perform at a “basic” rather than “proficient” or “advanced” level. • Achievement gaps persist for black/African American and Hispanic/Latino students who are not eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Black/African American student graduation rates are lower (though increasing), and dropout rates are higher (though decreasing), compared to rates for white students. Hispanic/Latino student graduation rates are also lower (and increasing), and their dropout rates are higher (but also increasing), compared to rates for white students. Even if you remove the socio-economic variable, black/African American students score about 15 percent lower in math and 7 percent lower in reading than their white peers. Similarly, Hispanic/Latino student achievement is about 7 percent lower in math and 2 percent lower than that of white peers. • Local English Language Learner (ELL) students met or exceeded state targets for attaining English proficiency the last five years, yet they have not met state targets for reading and math proficiency in the last two years. ELL student dropout rates are higher and graduation rates lower than their non-ELL counterparts. • Students receiving special education services continue to perform significantly lower than the “all student” group on all state and local measures of academic achievement. Their suspension rates are disproportionately high, as is also true for black/African American students as a group.

ELIMINATE GAPS: PURPOSEFUL, SYSTEMIC FOCUS FCPS leaders are working diligently to eliminate achievement gaps amongst our student groups. Our leaders include Dr. Keith Harris, recently appointed executive director for our newly created Accelerated Achievement and Equity Department. Efforts include

working closely with Frederick’s Eliminating the Achievement Gap (EAG) organization to aggressively address these gaps. The school system allotted funding from its Technology Now initiative to provide more timely access to student and teacher data for monitoring progress, planning improvements and highlighting areas of disproportionality. Efforts to recruit and retain minority job candidates are part of the plan to eliminate gaps. A major system focus is on cultural proficiency with a growth mindset to expand capacity for culturally responsive teaching that honors differences. This focus emphasizes benefits of diversity and interactions that foster knowledge and respect among cultural groups. To ensure that learning is accessible to all students, FCPS launched the Universal Design for Learning and created a framework called the Salient 5 to highlight practices shown to yield high results for student achievement: technological expression and delivery, collaboration, verbal discourse, questioning and formative assessment. We work to provide learners various ways of acquiring knowledge, alternatives for demonstrating their knowledge and skills, and to tap students’ interests to challenge and motivate them to learn. Strategies that focus on early learning and school readiness as well as on increasing language proficiency also assist teachers work to eliminate achievement gaps.

FAMILY AND COMMUNITY: ENGAGED All of these are important steps to eliminate achievement gaps, yet they will fail without significant family and community engagement. FCPS is firmly committed to engaging everyone who has a stake in public education — and that’s our entire community. Watch for opportunities in which you can make a difference. I invite businesses and organizations to sign up for our Academic Business Connection (ABC) at www.fcps.org/abc to partner with FCPS. I ask families to expect high achievement in school, show interest in and attend school activities, stay in touch with teachers, limit television viewing, make reading part of everyday life, provide a comfortable place and routine for studying, and learn about issues that affect children’s health and education. Join the ongoing dialog that helps us work together to eliminate achievement gaps in local public education and equip every student with college and career readiness.

HELPING KIDS GET CREATIVE

IN THE KITCHEN BY KATIE RAGUINDIN, TINY CHEFS EVENT PLANNER

Many families in Frederick County have been experiencing a renewed interest to be back in the kitchen making healthy and creative meals for family and friends. And kids also want to be part of the fun.

Tiny Chefs is dedicated to providing interactive and educational children’s cooking classes at schools, camps or community centers throughout Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia. With a philosophy of, “learning through cooking,” Tony Chefs encourages children to discover the joys of cooking while obtaining basic skills and culinary techniques. Instructors teach kids to follow recipes, measure and combine ingredients, and work together in a team all while promoting personal creativity. The company strives to instill health-conscious values in kids along with the confidence to experiment with their own creations in the future. More than 25 different themes contain about 20 recipes for each theme. Themes range from healthy eats such as Veggielicious and Gluten Free to comfort food such as Donut Bar and Baking Boot Camp. Tony Chefs’ cooking events are a fun way for kids to flex their creative muscles, spend time working in peer groups, and best of all: a great way to introduce them to the joy of cooking and baking.

HERE ARE ALL THE DIFFERENT SERVICES TINY CHEFS OFFERS: Party Planning Choose an entrée, dessert, and/or appetizer from the kid-friendly menus, and an instructor will come to your home to host a 90-minute party. Kids will decorate their own chef hats and as the entrée is cooking, will have time to decorate a placemat and chat with friends. The kids eat the food they prepare and receive printed recipes of everything they make. Girls and boys, from age 4 to 14, will get to learn by doing, and are encouraged to explore 34

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | SPRING 2016

their imaginations and creativity while learning basic cooking skills and safety in the kitchen. For older ages, specialty themes such as Chopped! or Iron Chef allow kids to incorporate secret ingredients in their dishes.

In-Home or After-School Cooking Classes In addition to essential cooking skills like chopping, grilling and sautéing, instructors work with children to teach them skills that will stay with them for years. Classes and camps cover organizational skills, learning to work as a team, cooperation and taking turns. Sessions also touch on math skills (as they learn to double or halve ingredient measurements) and reading comprehension (as they learn to work from a recipe). An effort is made to introduce ingredients and flavors that may not be familiar to many students, such as adding sweet potato to a biscuit recipe for a healthy, hearty twist. Fun, unusual flavors are balanced with classic recipes kids will want to make again and again.

Summer Cooking Camps Delicious eats and sweets are being cooked up all summer long during summer cooking camps. Each week of class focuses on a different theme. Example themes include Molto Italiano!; Snack Attack; AllAmerican Summer Favorites; Breakfast for Dinner!; French Bistro; Tapas & Small Plates; Nutrition Sleuths; Mexican Fiesta!; Amazing Asian; Let’s Make Every Day a Holiday!; Cupcake Wars; Books for Cooks; Cookie Explosion, Tropical Madness; and Chopped.

an overall sense of wellbeing.

I am a licensed physical therapist, registered yoga teacher and mother. More than a year ago, I started using yoga with my daughter to help her regain strength and function in her arm after a severe humeral fracture, which resulted in emergency surgery and nerve damage. She would complain about any traditional physical therapy exercises I attempted with her. Yoga became her rehabilitation. Now she loves to practice with me and learn new, challenging postures. I decided to start teaching yoga for children because I wanted her and other children to have the opportunity to start to grow their own practice, and reap all of the benefits that yoga has to offer them.

Asana is defined as “posture” or “pose” and the asanas collectively make up the physical practice of yoga. Asanas help children by instilling alignment and good posture. The postures challenge their strength, flexibility and balance while encouraging focus and concentration. In addition, an asana practice has been found to help children with digestion, to strengthen the immune system and to promote better sleep. In addition to the physical body benefits, there are positive effects of yoga on young minds. Yoga calms the mind and the nervous system, relieving tension and stress in a healthy manner. It also helps build focus, improve attention span, concentration, and balance energy levels. Pranayama, the rhythmic control of the breath, is one of the most valuable aspects of yoga for children.

of breath and cultivates a connection among the body, mind and spirit. By offering some of these practices and techniques to our children, we are giving them powerful tools to use as they grow to help them create a foundation for healthy, happy successful lives.

Expanding beyond the body and the mind, yoga also enriches the spirit. Yoga helps us instill confidence and self esteem in our children. It is an opportunity to teach them that success is not always measured by winning or exceptional grades. Yoga is a practice, not meant to be perfected, but one that we continue to grow and learn from. It encourages discipline, perseverance and patience. Basic yogic principles, such as nonviolence and truthfulness, inspire our children to be kind, honest, respectful and accepting of themselves and others.

ELECTRIFYING TRANSIT:

MODERNIZING FREDERICK’S TRANSPORTATION BY KENDALL K. TIFFANY, COMMUNITY RELATIONS MANAGER, TRANSIT SERVICES OF FREDERICK COUNTY

This spring TransIT is introducing some exciting technological changes for you to incorporate into your daily routine, all of which will improve and simplify your TransIT experience while also being more environmentally friendly.

BOOKING YOUR TRIP As smartphones become more of the norm and time is of the essence, people are beginning to carry fewer things and are shifting their focus away from traditional measures, such as visiting a ticketing location. Molding with the everchanging norm, TransIT has an all-encompassing ticketing app available for Apple and Android operating systems. Rather than having to carry extra cash or worrying about exact change for bus fare, or even misplacing your ticket, Frederick County residents (and visitors) can download and use TransIT ezFARE. TransIT ezFARE allows riders to purchase and download a variety of tickets – from a single-trip ticket to a 30-day pass. Your phone is your ticket! The free app also has a unique pass only available to purchase within the app, a one day pass — with unlimited rides for the day — for $4. Other features included in the app are the ability to plan a trip with Google Transit or view live updates through TransIT’s Twitter feed.

ARRIVAL TIME AT YOUR TRANSIT STOP Currently, all TransIT Connectors operate on a fixed route, or deviated fixed route, with a scheduled arrival time at stops along the routes. TransIT riders plan to arrive to their respective stops 5 minutes prior to their needed departure time. While the majority of TransIT services arrive on time, there are factors that may affect or delay services on route such as a road closure or bad weather. These type of delays are unknown by riders, leaving them unsure of the delayed arrival time. To improve service to our customers, all TransIT Connectors will be equipped with automatic vehicle location (AVL) systems. The

AVL system, provided by RouteMatch, will use GIS technology to determine the real-time of arrival to the respective TransIT stops. RouteMatch has an accompanying app, RouteShout, for TransIT riders to download to their smartphones. The app will display the location of TransIT vehicles in real time and provide an estimated arrival at the rider’s stop. The technology will greatly benefit riders because they will also be able to set alerts to notify them of the arrival time to their specific stop, allowing the rider to plan to arrive at their stop with minimized wait time. Accompanying AVL, all TransIT buses will also be equipped with automated passenger counters (APC). At this time, drivers use a simple counter — categorized by fare type — when each passenger boards the bus. At the end of their shift, the drivers are responsible for collecting the data from the counter and adding it to their daily shift report. Data from the shift report is then manually entered into a spreadsheet. With the upgrade in technology to APC, data will become real time and ridership fluctuations will be able to be measured as minutely as location and time of day.

RIDE POLLUTION FREE Aside from smartphone technology, TransIT is incorporating vehicle efficiency and more environmentally friendly technology into the fleet. This spring, five new fully electric buses will be incorporated. The buses, brightly painted in eye-catching TransIT green, are refurbished by Complete Coach Works and will run on an all-electric charge. The technology — a Zero-Emission Propulsion System (ZEPS) — will benefit the Frederick community by reducing air pollution, providing a quieter ride while running on county roads and city streets, and saving the county money on fuel costs and operations. By incorporating these buses into the fleet, TransIT is demonstrating its commitment to the triple bottom line — benefiting riders and residents around Frederick County by providing transportation with a smaller environmental impact that is more financially savvy on operating costs. Frederick will be the first jurisdiction on the East Coast to receive the refurbished all-electric buses. Their arrival could not have been possible without the Federal Transit Administration, the Maryland Transit Administration and the Maryland Energy Administration.

While walking along the Frederick Wine Trail, visitors will discover some of Frederick County’s best agricultural bounty: its beautiful vineyards and outstanding wines. From the outskirts of Mount Airy to the edge of Montgomery County and even in Downtown Frederick, there is a variety of styles and tastes with something for everyone. Participating wineries include: Elk Run Vineyard, Linganore Winecellars and Loew Vineyards.

The Piedmont Wine Trail includes the wineries of Baltimore and Harford Counties. A short drive into the country from Baltimore leads you deep into the state’s agricultural heritage, where Maryland wine began and award-winning wineries thrive today. Visit historic towns, hike through numerous state parks and tour the many cultural attractions set along the Piedmont Wine Trail. Baltimore and Harford counties’ countryside provides a vibrant landscape of rolling hills dotted with thoroughbred horse farms and nationally recognized wineries producing cellar-worthy reds and lively whites. Participating wineries include: Boordy Vineyards, Dejon Vineyard, Fiore Winery, Harford Vineyard & Winery, and Royal Rabbit Vineyards.

PATUXENT WINE TRAIL Southern Maryland: Anne Arundel, Calvert, Prince George’s and St. Mary’s counties The Patuxent Wine Trail presents the wineries of Southern Maryland, bounded by the Patuxent and Potomac rivers and the Chesapeake Bay. The birthplace of Maryland, the area is rich in history and flavor, home to many historical landmarks, lighthouses and quaint waterfront towns. Visitors can roam the trail and sample superb wines in a restored tobacco barn, on the slopes of a rolling vineyard or along the banks of a pristine creek. Participating wineries include: Cove Point Winery, Fridays Creek, Perigeaux Vineyards & Winery, Port of Leonardtown Winery, Romano Vineyard & Winery, Running Hare Vineyard and Solomons Island Winery.

Erik Larson is both an historian and journalist who researches events surrounding his books’ narratives and is such a skilled speaker, that we believe he is the perfect choice for our devoted Frederick readers, as is Naomi Shihab Nye, whose book, ‘The Turtle of Oman,’ is currently being used in public school curriculums across the country.” Get in the game and join the Summer Challenge, this year’s summer reading program. With activities and programs for children, teens and adults, the program challenges Frederick County residents to read, learn and explore their community and see if they have what it takes to become an FCPL All Star! More than 100 business partners are joining in the program and will serve as program presenters as well. “Last year’s summer reading program showed a 70 percent increase in finishers. This means that even more children, teens and adults read and learned all summer long!” said Janet Vogel, FCPL youth services coordinator. FCPL is partnering with area national parks to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service throughout 2016. Programs such as ‘Wild Animals of Your National Parks for teens,” and “Nature Journaling on the C&O Canal,” are but a few of the offerings that provide a participatory platform for learning. As always, FCPL branches will continue to offer the hugely popular storytimes for young children, as well as STEM Labs at C. Burr Artz, Urbana, Thurmont and Brunswick, along with a traveling lab with rotating equipment at Emmitsburg, Middletown, Walkersville and Point of Rocks. STEM programming teaches children and teens to focus on critical thinking through experiential learning. “Continual learning is critical in today’s world,” FCPL Director Darrell Batson said. “These programs, activities and technology resources, along with our numerous community partnerships, have worked to position our library system among the finest in the State of Maryland.”

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.

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. You are just a few miles from the Gettysburg Battlefield, Ski Liberty Resort and numerous golf courses.

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.

MOUNT AIRY The Town of Mount Airy is a nationally accredited “Main Street Maryland Community” and holds the State of Maryland’s esteemed “Community Legacy” designation. Located directly off of Interstate 70, it is about 45 minutes from both the Baltimore and Washington metropolitan job markets. One can quickly become enamored with downtown Mount Airy and its small-town charm, quaint old buildings and friendliness that takes you back to a time long past. Mount Airy has experienced a dramatic increase in growth, but because of effective growth management and land use strategies, still retains that quaint, small-town atmosphere. It boasts a booming downtown with community and cultural events, retail establishments, antique and craft collectible shops, cafes and restaurants.

FREDERICK TOWN LISTINGS 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.

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.
