No matter the time of year, the Frederick region always has plenty of activities on the calendar. But in the heat of the summertime, the list of festivals, carnivals, concerts, and other free events here is seemingly endless. Celebrate Frederick, the nonprofit arm of the City of Frederick events office, is behind a bunch of wonderful weekly events held in Baker Park each summer. On Sundays, free music floods the park’s bandshell, while on Thursdays, families can enjoy morning theatrical performances there. Find out more about these and other events the city sponsors on Page 48. This year marks the National Park Service’s centennial. Celebrate by visiting one of Frederick’s most interesting sites, Monocacy National Battlefield. Every day rangers are on hand to give tours and show off the site’s history. But plenty of special activities are filling up the park’s calendar as well. See all of the park’s summer plans outlined in a story on Page 14. All that activity is sure to leave you hungry, and probably needing an energy boost. Good thing Frederick is the city of coffee and doughnuts! Whether you like your caffeine hold or cold, sweet or black, there’s no shortage of great places to grab your fix than Frederick. Read all about it on Page 12. Also in this issue, helpful tips for dog owners (p. 46), parents of young kids (p. 34), as well as commuters (p. 44). And a fascinating review of the history of Carroll Creek Park in Downtown Frederick (p. 24), whose final section was finally opened and celebrated in late May.

HISTORY, HIKING, FUN FOUND ALL SUMMER

AT MONOCACY BATTLEFIELD The Battle of Monocacy, the only Confederate victory on Union soil, happened just outside of the City of Frederick, and the land upon which it was fought has been preserved as a national park, and is ready for visitors daily. In the Summer of 1864, Confederate Lt. Gen. Jubal Early launched a campaign down the Shenandoah Valley with a corps of about 15,000 troops. The campaign was a last attempt to carry the war into the north and to relieve some pressure from General Robert E. Lee in the south. Early's ultimate objective for the campaign was to march down the Valley, to swing to the east through Frederick, and to attack and capture Washington, D.C. from the north.

152nd anniversary of the Battle of Monocacy and the 25th anniversary of the park, with civilian and military living history encampments. There will be handson activities for children of all ages, battlerelated programming and infantry and artillery firing. Ranger talks are scheduled for 9:30 and 11:30 a.m., and 2:30 p.m.; infantry demonstrations at 10 a.m., 12:30 and 3 p.m.; and artillery demonstrations at 10:30 a.m., 1 and 3:30 p.m.

Though it was the only Confederate victory on Union soil, it was also a defeat. The time spent fighting the battle cost the Confederates a crucial day of marching and provided the Union time to send reinforcements to Washington, D.C. Gen. Early’s army returned to Virginia and the remainder of the war was fought on Southern soil. Because of Gen. Wallace’s valiant delaying action, the Battle of Monocacy became known as “The Battle that Saved Washington, D.C.”

July 16–17 Historic House Series: Worthington Farm The beautifully situated Worthington Farm became a staging area for the Confederate Army to attack the Union line during the Battle of Monocacy. Stand at the window where Glen Worthington watched the battle that inspired him to write “Fighting For Time,” which helped the battlefield become a national park. Rangers and volunteers will provide access to the house and information on the history of the home. Living historians will be on hand to demonstrate life in the 19th century. Open house from 11 a.m.–4 p.m. 4235 Baker Valley Road.

Ranger programming is available daily, and self-guided tours and hikes are always an option for visitors. But a variety of additional programming is available this summer at the battlefield, including: July 9 and 10 Anniversary Celebration Join the park as it commemorates the

There is a fee associated with the float trip, please register through Frederick County Parks and Recreation. August 20–21 Historic House Series: Thomas Farm The Thomas Farm saw the heaviest fighting during the Battle of Monocacy and the house sustained significant damage while the family took shelter in the basement. Rangers and volunteers will provide access to the house and information on the history of the home. Living historians will also be on-hand to demonstrate life in the 19th Century. 4460 Baker Valley Road, Frederick.

GO MODERN, BUY CHROME! BY MARY BOSWELL, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF FREDERICK COUNTY AND NANCY WHITMORE, GUEST CURATOR

Visitors to Frederick often enjoy exploring Everedy Square and Shab Row, a cluster of specialty shops and eateries in charming old buildings along East and Church streets. Located adjacent to the Frederick Historic District, Everedy Square and Shab Row have a vibrant history of their own. One of the most successful businesses to occupy the area was the Everedy Company, owned and operated by brothers Harry, Robert, William and Joseph Lebherz. Their first product was the Bottle Capper, one of many items that Harry invented, and it retailed for $1.50. The year was 1923, at the height of Prohibition, when producing, transporting and selling alcoholic beverages were illegal. The device gave home brewers the means to cap all types of bottles. Hire’s Root Beer included it in a home-brew kit to cap bottles of root beer. Everedy’s advertisements urged homemakers to use it to cap bottles of homemade soda, catsup and relish. Its main use, however, was to cap or cork bottles of beer and wine.

Promotions claimed it could be wiped clean in seconds and would not tarnish or stain. The cookware was distributed throughout North and South America and competed with leading manufacturers such as Farber and Revere.

high-quality service, Everedy was honored on a CBS radio program at the time, “So Proudly We Hail.” In 1943, it also received the Army-Navy "E" for Excellence Production Award. Each employee was given a commemorative pin. Acquired by Standard International in 1958, Everedy merged with the Union Manufacturing Company in 1959 and became the Union-Everedy Company. Production was transferred elsewhere, and the Frederick operation closed in 1977.

From the early 1930s into the 1970s, Everedy marketed “Evercraft” gift items, including cocktail shakers, serving trays, ashtrays, cigarette lighters and cigarette boxes.

During World War II, Everedy converted its production line to support the war effort. In 1943, its first military contract involved the manufacture of floats for anti-submarine nets. Everedy also manufactured more than 200,000 land mines, 2 million grenades and parts for bombs. The company developed and produced folding fin stabilizers for rockets, at 10,000 per day, and created a machine that folded bandages for the Red Cross.

In the mid-1930s, Everedy introduced “Speedy Clean” chrome-plated cookware.

The average annual number of employees rose from 168 to 435. Due to the company’s

Everedy became a pioneer in chrome plating and helped supply car manufacturers in Hagerstown and Baltimore. In 1928, Harry patented a silent door closer, and the company began manufacturing screen door hardware. Everedy claimed to be “The Brightest Name in Hardware.”

TRANSFERRING INSURANCE WHEN YOU MOVE SUBMITTED BY STATE FARM INSURANCE

We all know how stressful moving can be: There’s a massive list of tasks to perform. So it’s no surprise that making new insurance arrangements may not be your first priority. But do yourself a favor: Don’t wait. The process isn't as tough as it seems. Below are a few key questions to investigate about moving and insurance. They don't cover everything, but they should get you going in the right direction.

Have You Talked To Your Agent? If you're happy with your insurance company, give your agent a call. Your agent should be able to tell you whether you'll need to find a new agent and how to transfer your policies to your new address. If you want to find a State Farm agent in your new neighborhood, you can search by ZIP code at the State Farm website. You'll see a map of offices and a list of agent profiles, including contact information.

What About New Insurance? And Transferring Insurance? Talking with an agent is the best way to find out what you’ll need to do to get new insurance or transfer your insurance to your new address. Your agent will also help you understand insurance requirements in your new location. 20

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | SUMMER 2016

If you're moving between states, keep in mind that insurance coverage varies across states. For example, in California, due to the high frequency of earthquakes, you need to take special precautions to make sure your home is safe and secure in case an earthquake occurs. That’s not the case in Indiana! Different states also have different auto insurance laws, and if you’re moving to a new state, you’ll need a new auto insurance policy—plain and simple. Most state laws require you to have homeowner’s insurance before you even buy a home. If you’re covered by State Farm, you should be able to get a prorated credit from your old homeowner’s policy when you’re signing up for a new one in a new state.

Are Your Possessions Covered While You’re Moving? Depending on how you've chosen to move —hired movers, rental truck, a portable container, or do-it-yourself in the back of your old Honda—your property may or may not be covered between the time it leaves your home and arrives at its final destination. Some homeowner policies will cover your property everywhere, regardless of whether it’s in your home or in a moving truck. Other policies won't cover anything once it’s out your door. So double-check your policy or call your agent. If your own insurance policy won't cover your property, you can get coverage through your moving company. By federal law, moving companies have to offer supplemental insurance for your property that will cover a set percentage of replacement costs, but you’ll need to increase that amount to get full coverage.

FREDERICK’S INNOVATIVE CARROLL CREEK PARK

FINALLY COMPLETE BY MICHELLE KERSHNER, CITY OF FREDERICK DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT Running like a ribbon through Downtown Frederick, Carroll Creek Park is dotted with fountains, storefronts and pubic art. People gather creekside for festivals, concerts and outdoor dining, but there’s more than meets the eye to this vibrant urban park. Throughout history, Carroll Creek routinely overflowed its banks leaving a path of destruction in its wake. In 1972 and 1976, floodwaters from Carroll Creek decimated blocks of Downtown Frederick. As a child, Joe Adkins, now deputy director of planning for the City of Frederick, remembers riding his bike to the Square Corner in the aftermath of Hurricane Agnes in 1972. As Adkins looked at the flooded streets, he remembers thinking, “This is just devastating.” The floods marked the decline of Downtown Frederick. In the face of this devastation, a creative plan emerged to build a flood control project that also served as an urban park, shared-use path, community amenity and economic development engine. The Carroll Creek Park project was born. “Approximately $60 million was initially invested between the city, county, and State of Maryland to develop the 1.3mile flood control project,” said Richard Griffin, director of economic development for the City of Frederick. Over the years, aboveground portions of the project were completed as well. 24

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | SUMMER 2016

Six administrations and nearly four decades later, Frederick celebrated the completion of the final phase of public improvements along Carroll Creek Park on May 19, 2016. Hundreds gathered along the new section of park in front of Union Knitting Mills for the park’s grand opening. All mayors that carried the project forward were honored, and the crowd watched the inaugural burst of water from the newest water feature, Mill Pond Fountain. Carroll Creek Park brings an innovative solution to downtown’s flooding problem. “In Frederick, an engineering marvel runs beneath the city, carrying floodwaters away from the vibrant downtown area, while people are walking above it in a beautiful park setting,” said Tracy Coleman, deputy director of engineering for the City of Frederick. On the surface, the creek flows through an idyllic and peaceful man-made channel. Four large conduits, each large enough for a dump truck to drive though, run below the city and carry the majority of the creek’s water when it floods. Aboveground, a world-class urban park has emerged. The linear nature of the park serves as a transportation network, connecting the east and west sides of the city. “Carroll Creek Park means people in motion without motors,” said city transportation

planner Tim Davis. With the completion of the new shared-use path connection under U.S. Route 15 in the summer of 2016, pedestrians and cyclists will be able to travel from Carroll Creek Park at East Patrick Street to the end of the Golden Mile near the former Fredericktowne Mall site. Throughout the summer, visitors flock along the creek just east of South Market Street. Here, a water garden that is about six times the size of Monet’s famous water garden in Giverny, France, attracts thousands with its colorful blooms. Much like the story of Carroll Creek Park, it, too, is a story of overcoming adversity. The main aboveground channel of the creek has a slow water flow. This, combined with full sun and excessive nutrients from upstream, created a perfect storm. Unsightly algae took over the creek in the heat of the summer. Local resident and water garden enthusiast Dr. Peter Kremers proposed an innovative solution: an urban water garden. Color on the Creek is a community-led project that works in cooperation with the city to plant and maintain a water garden in the creek’s main channel to solve the algae problem. Today, it serves as an attraction for residents and visitors alike. The $15.8 million completion of public improvements along Carroll Creek Park’s new section marks a major milestone for

THE ANATOMY OF A FLOOD

How Carroll Creek’s Flood Control Project Protects Downtown Frederick Flooding in Frederick in 1972 was the result of Hurricane Agnes, and was classified as a 100-year flood in the Carroll Creek drainage basin. “In these types of events, first Carroll Creek floods,” City of Frederick Director of Public Works Zack Kershner said. “The drainage area to Carroll Creek is relatively small, so it floods pretty quickly, within six or seven hours.” Then, the Monocacy River rises and floods 15–20 hours later and backs up into the city. “And that’s what causes the tremendous damage,” Kershner said.

the project, and it is expected to have an ongoing impact. Private investment and redevelopment along the newly developed banks of the creek and beyond will continue to transform Frederick. More than $100 million in new and renovated private construction is planned, bringing new jobs and increased local and state tax revenues.

The Carroll Creek flood control project was designed to protect the downtown area and buildings. Near the Bell Tower in Baker Park, there is an approximately 550-foot weir wall that is set at an elevation to help control flooding. When the water reaches a certain level, it spills over the wall and flows into four large conduits. The conduits, or tunnels, safely carry the water under the city and deposit it east of town. Each conduit is large enough to drive a dump truck through it. The maze of tunnels has storm drain connectors, flapper valves, and other systems to protect the city from flooding. Before the project, Downtown Frederick had a large floodplain running through the heart of the downtown on both sides of Carroll Creek. Today, the project is so successful that properties in Downtown Frederick were removed from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) flood map.

“Carroll Creek Park is a destination,” said Frederick Mayor Randy McClement. It was created so people have a place to gather and connect. If they visit Carroll Creek Park, he said, “They’re going to see the charm and character of the rest of our town.”

GET IN THE SUMMER

READING GAME BY DONNA BANNWOLF, PUBLIC RELATIONS MANAGER FOR FREDERICK COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARIES

UPCOMING PROGRAMS Here are just a few of the exciting programs for all ages. Check the website at FCPL.org for branch locations, dates and hours. • Nighttime on the Deck— Creatures of the Night— Nocturnal Animals • Get Fit, Get Active, with Science Featuring Flumpa the Frog • Technology iAcademy • K-9 Search and Rescue: Hug-a-Tree • Let’s Get Healthy: Nutrition for Teens • Geocaching 201 for Adults

Summer is here, which means pool time, picnics and a Summer Challenge from the Frederick County Public Libraries. The library system’s summer reading program, with the theme Get in the Game, is under way at all eight branches. Summer Challenge is FCPL’s biggest annual event, serving 10,000 Frederick County residents each year. There are fun and imaginative programs for all ages including kids, teens and adults. Track summer reading, earn badges and compete for prizes, while brushing up on reading and math skills. “It’s so important for our children and teens to keep up with their reading during the summer so that their brain stays active,” said Janet Vogel, youth services coordinator for FCPL. “The average summer learning loss is one month per year in both math and reading. And, it’s cumulative, meaning that kids will be that much more behind the curve when they return to school in the fall, not to mention continuing that struggle to keep up in high school and

college. Multiple studies have shown that participation in summer reading programs prevents summer learning loss.”

WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

A recent Johns Hopkins University study found a two-thirds achievement gap for a select group of Baltimore ninth graders, some of whom joined in summer reading programs, and some of whom did not. Those that didn’t suffered summer learning loss during their elementary school years.

2. Visit fcpl.org/summer and click on “Summer Reading Challenge login,” which takes you to Beanstack

“The library’s Summer Challenge is a great opportunity to combine academics with enrichment activities,” Vogel said. FCPL has recruited a number of Community Sidekicks to lead unique programs, and sponsors are offering rafting trips, amusement park passes, museum tickets and more as prizes. Finishers—those who complete their reading challenge—are eligible for even bigger prizes, providing them incentive to stay focused, while having fun.

1. Visit your local library branch to sign up

3. Once there, click “Register.” Parents and guardians may register first and add children to that account, keeping all account information in the same place to keep track of activities and reading logs.

FCPL’s summer reading program has been in place for decades, growing exponentially over the years. It is dedicated to providing quality activities and events for Frederick County residents. The library staff spends the entire year planning for summer reading, continually recruiting new community partners and sponsors. 29

CHILD/YOUTH ACTIVITIES

THIS SUMMER, AIM FOR

UNSTRUCTURED PLAY BY VICTORIA BROWN, FOUNDING DIRECTOR, LUCY SCHOOL

Searching for rich learning opportunities for your young child this summer? Search no farther than your own backyard, neighborhood park or playroom. Or, if childcare is a necessity, find a provider or camp that promises plenty of unstructured time

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | SUMMER 2016


CHILD/YOUTH ACTIVITIES Unscheduled, unsupervised, screen-free time for play is one of the most valuable learning opportunities we can give our children. Free play is now understood as a necessity for young children to develop social skills, but it also supports cognitive development, builds emotional maturity and is critical in the development of children’s executive functioning. This includes all types of free play: playing and exploring alone, with a sibling, and, for children 3 and older, playing with friends. Playing alone, building with blocks is great fine motor work and encourages problem solving and creativity. Playing chase teaches rule making, negotiating, turn taking and exercise. Rough and tumble play is important, too, and plenty of time outdoors in nature is extremely important. It is incredible what discoveries children make outdoors and how their pretend play is influenced by logs and piles of leaves. For young children, ages 2 to 8, pretend play—also called dramatic play—is chock full of learning value. When young children engage in dramatic play they take on and manipulate identity, and not just character identity—they play out the ideas and practices of their culture and their environment. It provides a “living through” quality. They are in the shoes of the princess, the dragon slayer, the doctor and firefighter and so on. The stories and scenarios acted out in dramatic play at school, on the playground or neighbor’s yard, or at home represent individual experience and shared knowledge. We learn about the world in different ways, from different viewpoints, and each of the ways in which we know it produces different representations, or realities’… the children become increasingly adept at seeing the same set of circumstances from multiple perspectives. When children are engaged in pretend play they imaginatively transform objects to fit the context of their play. Engaged in this kind of activity, they have the ability to hold two representations of an object in their mind at once—they can perceive a block of wood as a block and pretend sandwich at once. The child knows she can’t really eat the sandwich, she is simply engaged in symbolic thinking. Indeed, children

as young as 2, through play, have the capacity to transform non-representational objects in their minds, placing meaning onto the object as something that “stands” for something else. This “double-thinking” is the same symbolmaking process necessary to read, write and understand math. Written language requires object transformation. Reading and math are symbol systems. Marks on a page stand for a letter or a word the way the block stands for the sandwich. Symbol making is a sophisticated process and dramatic play is one of the ways children practice it. In this imaginative play, they are encoding and decoding meaning— the root of pre-literacy work. Without doubt, the more opportunity children have to encode (this is just a block but I’m going to pretend that it is a sandwich) and decode (hey—she’s pretending to eat that, I guess it’s supposed to be a sandwich), the sooner they will be able to transfer this process onto a page of letters and words. Children have other opportunities for symbol making. Visual arts is all about encoding (this little stick and circle is me and the big one is mommy) and decoding (this blue part looks like a rocket ship). And children who spend time outdoors every day, observing and interacting with nature notice: dark clouds in the sky stand for “soon it’s going to rain,” and leaning trees mean “windy.” But play, indoors or out, is most rich with opportunities for symbol making and is what children do best. It is embedded in their genetic make-up! Parents, grandparents, childcare providers and camp leaders can enrich children’s play and symbol making and deepen the learning experience by providing a variety of non-representational materials that facilitate object transformation. Blocks are excellent for children of all ages, but many materials you have in your home can provide hours of play. Fill a basket with fabric remnants of various sizes, and scarves and sashes and keep this basket in the playroom. Make sure there is something soft and blue that can “stand for” a river or ocean and a few floral prints to become gardens and “party dresses.” White fabric becomes snow and clouds or a wedding dress. Fabric with

texture is nice too. Dress-up clothes are fun, but creating dress up clothes from various fabric pieces requires exercising that imagination muscle! A basket of clothes pins or small binder clips serve well for fastening. Set up another basket or box with a variety of paper towel tubes, toilet paper tubes, and wrapping paper tubes. These simple recycled tubes and sticks become the best telescopes, binoculars, oars, trumpets, horns, elephant trunks, rolling pins, burritos, rabbit holes, walking sticks, car tunnels and ramps, and birthday candles for dramatic play. Best of all, they are easily replaceable when they break. Add a few paint sticks to stir up more creativity (most paint stores will give you a few for free). Nature provides magnificent objects to stimulate creative play. Children are naturally drawn to the gifts of nature dropped down from trees and such. Given long outdoor play time, children will find endless creative uses for pine cones, and love to collect and pile up acorns and stones. Sticks, with proper guidance for safety, turn into just about anything. And if you are willing to let your child get plenty dirty, nothing is better than a mud kitchen! The natural colors, smells, and textures of nature add to children’s sensory input during play as they transform them into play landscapes for small animals, or coax you into their play restaurant with a savory serving of pine cone-chicken, stonepotatoes and dried leaf-salad. From the beginning of time, object transformation has been an essential part of children's imaginative play. A pile of stones became a herd of goats; sticks were tied together to make a horse. Today's children, often bombarded with storebought toys designed to simulate the real world objects they represent, still delight in and benefit greatly when provided nonrepresentational objects for play.

LEARN HOW TO

AVOID ZIKA VIRUS The Maryland Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene are asking Marylanders to survey their properties and eliminate mosquito-breeding sites, take appropriate precautions to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes, and to spread the word about Zika virus prevention. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Zika virus is spread to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. Both species of these containerbreeding mosquitoes occur in Maryland. Marsh and floodwater mosquitoes are not known to transmit Zika. The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint pain and conjunctivitis (red eyes). The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting for several days to a week after being bitten by an infected mosquito.

People usually don’t get sick enough to go to the hospital, and they very rarely die of Zika. For this reason, many people might not realize they have been infected. However, Zika virus infection during pregnancy can cause a serious birth defect called microcephaly, as well as other severe fetal brain defects. Once a person has been infected, he or she is likely to be protected from future infections. Zika virus was first discovered in 1947 and is named after the Zika Forest in Uganda. In 1952, the first human cases of Zika were detected and since then, outbreaks of Zika have been reported in tropical Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific Islands. Zika outbreaks have probably occurred in many locations. In May 2015, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) issued an alert regarding the first confirmed Zika virus

infection in Brazil. On February 1, 2016, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared Zika virus a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). Local transmission has been reported in many other countries and territories. Zika virus will likely continue to spread to new areas. The CDC recommends using Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered insect repellents with one of the following active ingredients: DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or para-menthanediol. Choosing an EPA-registered repellent ensures the EPA has evaluated the product for effectiveness. When used as directed, EPA-registered insect repellents are proven safe and effective, even for pregnant and breast-feeding women.

PREVENTION TIPS FROM THE MARYLAND DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE YOUR YARD Mosquitoes can exploit the tiniest pools of standing water in your yard and ruin your summer fun. Check your yard every week and dump water out of any containers you see— containers like buckets, cans, bottles, coolers, bird baths, even wheelbarrows and especially saucers under flower pots. Get rid of what you can. Store items upside down when not in use. Or better yet, store them inside or under cover away from rain.

38

CHILDREN’S TOYS Kids love playing in the yard, but their plastic toys usually have nooks and crannies that hold water after it rains. Within a week, your children might be hiding inside to avoid all of the ‘skeeters in your yard. Don’t let your kid’s toys become mosquito nurseries – dump out any water after it rains and store their toys inside or under cover.

YOUR GUTTERS Gutters clogged with leaves or debris will allow water to collect AND provide food for mosquito larvae. To keep mosquitoes out and the Zika Virus at bay, clean your gutters twice a year in May and November.

YOUR DRAIN PIPES Flexible corrugated drainpipe may keep water away from your house BUT each small corrugation can retain enough rainwater to support hundreds of mosquito larvae. Replace corrugated pipe with PVC pipe OR screen the open end and make sure it’s attached to downspouts with NO gaps.

TARPS IN YOUR YARD Tarps over woodpiles, recycle bins or trash cans can all hold many puddles of water and lead to mosquitoes using your yard as their home turf. Shake out tarps after each rain or arrange them to drain water away. Keep lids on outdoor trash cans or they will collect rainwater and provide a smelly breeding area for mosquitoes. Keep up with your yard maintenance and keep mosquitoes away.

YOUR SWIMMING POOL Do you have a swimming pool you no longer use? Pool water not being treated with chlorine will become a massive breeding ground for mosquitoes. Drain water out of your pool if possible, and treat any remaining water with a product such as Mosquito Dunks or Mosquito Torpedoes. Always treat the skimmer baskets of in-ground pools. Don’t let mosquitoes drown your summer fun.

NEW PROGRAM HELPS CAREGIVERS

REACH PATIENTS THROUGH MUSIC

When Mary Collins, a caregiver support coordinator at the Frederick County Department of Aging, heard founder Dan Cohen speak about the Music & Memory Program during an annual Alzheimer’s Association dementia conference, she was intrigued. She found out there are hundreds of Music & Memory certified care facilities throughout the U.S. and Canada, helping thousands of people struggling with dementia and other chronic cognitive and physical impairments to reconnect with family, friends and caregivers through personalized digital music programs. And she knew that the program would be great in Frederick. “It just felt like something we could and should do,” she said. So she and other staff at the Department of Aging worked to bring the program here. First, staff connected with a communitybased program in Utah, headed by Ellie Goldberg at Jewish Family Services. Goldberg was helpful in guiding the Frederick County department to develop a model that would work in Frederick inside facilities and in the community.

Several Department of Aging staff members were trained in the county, and the department was certified as a Music & Memory site in January. The Music & Memory program cites ongoing research and evaluation of its work, showing consistent results, such as: • Participants are happier and more social. • Relationships among staff, participants and family deepen. • Everyone benefits from a calmer, more supportive social environment. • Staff regains valuable time previously lost to behavior management issues. According to the Music & Memory website, there is growing evidence that a personalized music program gives professionals one more tool in their effort to reduce reliance on anti-psychotic medications. Care professionals learn how to set up personalized music playlists, delivered on iPods and other digital devices, for those in their care. These musical favorites tap deep memories not lost to dementia and can bring participants back to life, enabling them to feel like themselves again, to converse, socialize and stay present.

Music & Memory’s work is rooted in neuroscience research. In Frederick County, so far the program has been incredibly well received, according to Collins. “It took some time to get up and running while we put the administrative pieces together and built our music library— which is ongoing,” she said. There are currently four playlists developed, and two caregivers are regularly using them. The department gets regular feedback from the individual or caregiver about playlists and how they are working. Staff can delete songs, add others, and constantly make changes as necessary. The idea is to put together a playlist of music that is important to a dementia care recipient that may help calm or soothe them during times of agitation. The department has received donations of iTunes gift cards and iPods and hopes to continue to build the program to assist Frederick County seniors and their caregivers.

A METRO COMMUTER’S

GUIDE TO ALTERNATIVES BY: KENDALL K TIFFANY, COMMUNITY RELATIONS MANAGER, TRANSIT SERVICES OF FREDERICK COUNTY

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) has created a plan to repair and replace faulty equipment within their Metrorail System, a long overdue and necessary maintenance plan. SafeTrack accelerates about three years’ worth of track work into one year. WMATA has condensed the plan into 15 “Safety Surges” with the first segment, which began in June. The final segment concludes work in late March 2017. Commuters who currently use Metrorail will experience extended delays, reduced service hours, and track closures during which bus service will be provided to fill the void. To provide commuters with updates on SafeTrack, WMATA has created a blog at PlanItMetro.com. WMATA has encouraged Metrorail commuters during the next year to make alternative travel accommodations. Rather than driving alone and spending hours in your car, TransIT Services of Frederick County has multiple solutions to assist with the transition.

RIDESHARING Looking for someone with a similar commute to yours, but are not sure how to find them? Register for ridesharing at commuterconnections.org. Commuter Connections has a free commuter database covering the metropolitan region from Frederick to Baltimore, Frederick to Washington, D.C. and Frederick to Northern Virginia. Once you are registered in the database with all necessary information—including work hours and commute locations—a match list can be generated based on similar commute patterns.

VANPOOLING Know a group of people doing a similar commute? Vanpooling may be the economical solution. There are three different types of vanpools: owner-operated vans, third-party vans, and employerprovided vans; all of which have incentives. Potential incentives

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | SUMMER 2016

for vanpoolers include pre-tax transportation benefits provided by the employer and a financial subsidy for empty seats in the van for the first year of operation from TransIT.

MARC TRAIN Prefer to sit back and enjoy the scenery? The MARC Train Brunswick Line runs from Martinsburg, W.Va., and Frederick (with stops in between) into D.C., Monday through Friday mornings with return service in the afternoon. TransIT also has multiple Meet the MARC shuttles to connect commuters at park and ride lots in both Walkersville and Point of Rocks to the MARC stations in the area. he Meet the MARC service is free for MARC commuters with a train ticket.

GUARANTEED RIDE HOME Worried about an unexpected emergency as a commuter with no way to get home? If you use an alternative commute at least twice a week, you are eligible for Guaranteed Ride Home. Guaranteed Ride Home provides commuters up to four free rides per year for unexpected emergencies or unscheduled overtime. Sign up for Guaranteed Ride Home at commuterconnections.org.

FIVE THINGS

DOG TRAINERS WISH YOU KNEW BY LAURIE LUCK Most of the families love their dogs like crazy, but wish they could fix an annoying habit or two. Training problems are usually simple and need just a few tweaks to solve. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you fine-tune your dog's behavior. Pay attention to your dog when he’s doing something right. (Or when he’s NOT doing anything wrong!) Often, people take notice of their dog only when something is wrong. Dogs are quick learners and they turn this into a game. They learn that they can get your attention by picking up a sock, a child’s toy or a pen from the counter, so they keep doing it. Here's the quick fix for this pesky problem: when your dog is playing with his own toy, pay attention to him and tell him what a good dog he is. Chase him (if your dog likes a game of chase) or tug on the toy (if your dog likes a good game of tug). Find a way to show your dog how much you love him when he carries his own stuff around.

Ignore him when he's doing stuff just to get your attention. If your dog barks at you to get your attention, turn your back to him. When he's quiet, turn back around and praise him. Ignoring your dog won’t work if the dog isn’t barking at you. For instance, if he's barking at people on the street, he won't bark less if you ignore him. This strategy works only when you're the object of his bark. Be generous! There are lots of ways to show your dog that you love what he's doing. You can use praise, play, food, and even access to fun stuff (walks, car rides, etc.). The point is to be generous, not stingy. If your dog came away from the window in which he was barking, get that dog a cookie! That's a big deal. A measly little pat on the head isn't going to cut it. You need to really show your dog how much you value that behavior.

Quit it with the ‘No’ already. Focus on what you want your dog to do. “No” doesn’t tell your dog what he should be doing. In fact, when you’re saying “no” you're giving him attention exactly when you shouldn’t. Your dog will do what works. If jumping on you gets attention, he’ll keep jumping on you no matter how many times you tell him “no.” Instead of saying no, tell the dog what he should do to earn your praise and attention. Train all the time. Take even the smallest opportunity— 30 seconds while you put on your socks— to work with your dog. Ask for a sit. Praise, pet or play with him when he does it. The beauty of these short sessions is that you can fit a lot of them in and your dog never knows when he may earn a goodie. The dog learns that listening to you can lead to great things for him.

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.

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.

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.
