Calvert Commissioners Reject Tax Powers For School Board

Shop local, shop

Leonardtown!

Small Business Saturday

By Guy Leonard Staff Writer The entire board of the Calvert County commissioners rejected last week sending a piece of legislation to the county delegation in Annapolis that would have given the Board of Education the authority to tax citizens’ property to fund schools. The decision was made Nov. 15. Commissioner President Evan Slaughenhoupt said he understood the argument of teachers that they had been denied step increases promised in their contracts and that the oft touted pay scales in Calvert showing them as among the best paid in the state were not illustrative of the reality. There simply was not enough money in the county’s budget to provide all the steps teachers desired, he said. “The pay scales are on record… but not every step could be implemented,” Slaughenhoupt said. He said that giving those step increases meant raising taxes, something he did not support in this case. “Otherwise you’re allowing for these big tax increases,” Slaughenhoupt said. Commissioner Tom Hejl said that the teacher salaries were a political issue that got batted between the commissioners and the school board. “This comes from the board not really having the authority [to get more money for teacher salaries] and throwing it back at us,” Hejl said, adding that the tax money

from the Dominion gas plant project fueled a desire among many to get “a piece of that pie.” “They’re going to get a step but we can’t afford two and three increases,” Hejl said. The commissioners also approved sending to the state delegation a proposal for term limits for county commissioners. All but one of the commissioners — Commissioner Pat Nutter — approved the measure. Commissioners, though, asked County Attorney John Norris to include language that would have terms of commissioners staggered to avoid all commissioners being removed after three consecutive terms on the board at once. “Once you step towards term limits you risk having the whole board wiped out,” Slaughenhoupt said. Commissioner Mike Hart said too much time serving on the board could mean compromising one’s ideals. “Three terms is plenty,” Hart said. “I don’t know how somebody could do this for 20 years and be true to yourself.” The commissioners are set to meet Dec. 13 with the state delegation; the measures voted on by commissioners require state legislative approval.

Maryland Adds 700 Jobs in October

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released state jobs and unemployment data earlier today. According to the preliminary survey data, Maryland added 700 total jobs over-the-month. Maryland employers have added 66,600 jobs since January of 2015.  Maryland’s preliminary October unemployment rate held steady at 4.2 percent. “A key to Maryland job growth is to provide businesses with the skilled workforce they need to compete in the regional and global economies. A premiere workforce solution for Maryland’s businesses and jobseekers is apprenticeships. Under the leadership of Governor Larry Hogan, apprenticeships now are not only available in industries such as plumbing, electrical and construction, but in cyber security, biotechnology, and healthcare. This broader approach gives more Maryland employers the opportunity to create a pipeline of world-class talent in these in-demand fields,” said Maryland Labor Secretary Kelly M. Schulz. According to the data released today, the Manufacturing Supersector added 900 jobs

Last week’s count of absentee and provisional ballots in Calvert ensured that Tracy McGuire kept her District 2 school board seat. The race had been a close one ever since the unofficial results from Nov. 8, Election Day. The final vote tally was 19,267 ballots cast for McGuire with 19,141 cast for her opponent Nancy Highsmith. Highsmith is a retired teacher and administrator for Calvert public schools. The race was so close on Election Day that the outcome could not immediately be determined since there were some

2,000 absentee ballots yet to be counted at that time. McGuire will join newly elected board member Dawn Balinski, who had served from 2010 to 2014, and Kelly McConkey who won both of their bids for election. Balinski won out against first-time candidate Stephen Jones with 21,949 votes compared to Jones’ 15,472 votes. McConkey won with a comfortable margin of 24,470 votes to the 15,499 votes earned by his opponent Erin Knowles. guyleonard@countytimes.net

Governor Larry Hogan Announces $765 Million for New Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge

Construction to Begin in 2020, Completion Anticipated in 2023 – Seven Years Sooner than Legislatively Mandated Plan Standing at the base of the 75-year-old Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge, Governor Larry Hogan today announced $765 million in funding for construction of a new Potomac River crossing from Charles County, Maryland, to King George County, Virginia. This crossing is vital to the nation’s security and to the quality of life of thousands of Marylanders who depend on this bridge daily for work, business, and recreation. The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) anticipates advertising a design-build contract for the new bridge in 2018, starting construction in 2020, and opening a new, wider, and safer bridge in 2023 – seven years sooner than the plan legislatively mandated this past session through Senate Bill 907. Currently, there are 1,073 transportation projects, totaling nearly $8 billion dollars, under construction across the state – a record amount for the state of Maryland. “With this announcement, I am extremely proud to officially dedicate more than $760 million dollars to fully fund a new Potomac River bridge and finally replace the Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge,” said Governor Hogan. “From the start, our administration has consistently taken every step necessary to expeditiously push forward with this much-needed replacement project and going forward we will continue to push to ensure it’s completed as fast and efficiently as possible. Simply put, Marylanders deserve better than the daily congestion caused by the current bridge and with the construction of this new bridge, they will finally get it.” Governor Hogan and the administration have been strong advocates for replacing the Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge since

taking office. Under the governor’s leadership, the Board of Public Works approved a $15 million contract for preliminary design and engineering of the replacement bridge in 2015. In addition, the administration allocated over $61 million toward this project in the FY 2017-2022 Consolidated Transportation Program (CTP). Using this funding, MDTA has begun preliminary engineering for the new bridge, which includes environmental studies, test borings, right-of-way acquisition, and preliminary engineering for replacement designs. This is the final step before design can begin. With only one, narrow lane in each direction, the existing bridge causes near daily congestion and traffic issues. Routine maintenance and large-scale preservation efforts have significant traffic impacts. The new bridge will be built north of and parallel to the existing 1.7-mile bridge and will include two lanes of traffic in each direction and a barrier-separated bicycle and pedestrian path. MDTA was able to reduce the initial $1 billion price tag of the project by more than $200 million by taking a practical design approach to the new bridge. This project is anticipated to support an estimated 1,180 jobs per year over five years. “By right-sizing the bridge design, we’re able to deliver an affordable new bridge and do it years sooner,” said Transportation Secretary and MDTA Chairman Pete K. Rahn. Without the construction of this project, the current bridge would have required a major rehabilitation project in the next five years. The MDTA will demolish the existing bridge after the new bridge opens.

Cmm Receives Business Calvert Memorial Hospital Foundation Harvest Ball Eagle Award

The Calvert Alliance Against Substance Abuse (CAASA) presented the Calvert Marine Museum with its 2016 Business Eagle Award on Monday, October 24. This award recognizes the museum’s efforts to promote a designated driver program during their popular summer concert series. Although the museum started a designated driver program 12 years ago, it wasn’t until 2013 that they formally partnered with CAASA in support of their mission to “promote a healthy environment/free of alcohol and other drug abuse.” The program provides free non-alcoholic beverages to a person who signs up as a designated driver at each summer concert. CAASA vigilantly mans the table throughout each concert and the museum provides the free beverages. This joint effort provided over 1,500 safe rides home from the museum’s five fundraising concerts in 2016. “I am very proud of the relationship we have built with CAASA. It allows us to have some fun, raise money for the museum, and get everyone home safely. Our community supports the museum through

ticket purchases, so it is nice to be able to take care of them with a safe ride home,” said Development Director Vanessa Gill. Ms. Gill’s mother was permanently disabled by a drunk driver, so the program is very important to her. Gill said, “Candice D’Agostino and all those dedicated to saving lives at CAASA are the ones who really deserve the award. But I must admit, I am proud to think we might have had a hand in saving a life, and I look forward to continuing this program at each concert.” The concerts are the museum’s largest annual fundraiser and provide critical support to the education and preservation efforts of the museum. This past summer, featured performers included: Chris Young, William Michael Morgan, Sam Grow, Toby Keith, The Davisson Brothers, Rick Springfield, Night Ranger, The Romantics, Train, Andy Grammer, the Goo Goo Dolls and Collective Soul.

Additional Troopers And Enforcement Planned For Holiday Period Extra Thanksgiving holiday traffic this week will include additional Maryland state troopers who will be using a variety of patrol initiatives to keep traffic moving, respond quickly to highway incidents and take appropriate enforcement action when violations are observed that threaten the safety of travelers. Beginning Wednesday, troopers from each of the 23 Maryland State Police barracks who patrol every county will be focusing enforcement efforts on impaired driving, aggressive driving, speeding, distracted driving and other violations that often contribute to highway tragedies, especially during holiday seasons. Additional troopers will be working overtime assignments funded by highway safety grants from the Maryland Department of Transportation Highway Safety Office. Troopers from the JFK Highway Barrack patrol I-95 from north of Baltimore to the Delaware line.  They will implement Operation Keep It Moving on Wednesday and again Sunday, as they focus on keeping the interstate traffic moving expeditiously and minimizing delays caused by crashes and traffic violations.  Troopers will also be working high visibility patrols at the Maryland House and Chesapeake House rest areas to deter crime and assist travelers moving through the state. Bel Air Barrack troopers will conduct a sobriety checkpoint in cooperation with the Harford County Traffic Task Force, which includes the Harford County Sheriff’s Office, Bel Air Police, Aberdeen Police, and Havre de Grace Police departments.  DUI saturation patrols will also be occurring during the week in high crash/DUI areas. Troopers from the Golden Ring, Westminster and Waterloo Barracks will all be conducting DUI saturation patrols in their counties.  Patrols will be occurring each day, from Wednesday through Sunday.

The Frederick, Hagerstown, Cumberland, and McHenry barracks are deploying extra troopers along I-70 and I-68, with the largest number of troopers working during the peak travel times on Wednesday and Sunday. Like troopers working other interstates, they will focus on keeping traffic moving and assisting motorists who need help. Troopers on the Eastern Shore will be directing their heaviest enforcement to Rt. 50 and Rt. 13.  Impaired driving and speed enforcement will be the priorities there. Troopers from the Rockville, Forestville and College Park Barracks will have increased patrols on I-495, I-95 and I-270.  Troopers are being warned to be extra vigilant, due to more than one dozen troopers being struck so far this year on the Capital Beltway alone.  A trooper monitoring traffic on I-495 in Prince George’s County last night was injured when a car left the highway and struck his marked patrol vehicle.  The driver of the striking vehicle was arrested for impaired driving. In addition to working enforcement in cooperation with local police departments, troopers will be working closely with personnel from the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration.  SHA provides significant help arranging detours at crash sites and conducting courtesy patrols to assist motorists. Drivers can check travel conditions and delays before traveling.  SHA provides upto-date traffic and road conditions at roads. maryland.gov, or chart.state.md.us.  Traffic conditions are also available at md511.org, or by safely dialing 511 on your cell phone. Troopers are urging travelers not to drive distracted and to make traffic safety their first priority whenever they are behind the wheel.  Help us keep Maryland highways safe throughout this Thanksgiving weekend.

Raises More Than $270,000 for Family Birth Center The 2016 Calvert Memorial Hospital Harvest Ball was a huge success thanks to more than 600 attendees and extraordinary support from corporate, community and individual sponsors that helped raise more than $270,000 to help fund improvements to The Family Birth Center. Funds raised at the Great Gatsby Gala, An Era of New Beginnings, will help modernize the Family Birth Center and equip it with state-of-the-art technology including an additional Panda® infant warmer, fetal monitor, portable infant monitor and updated nurse call system; providing our highly skilled doctors and nurses with the essential tools they need to deliver exceptional care during pregnancy and after delivery. Additionally, renovations will also be made to the center to provide a more comfortable experience for patients and their families. According to CMH Foundation Execu-

tive Director Theresa Johnson, this year’s ball was widely supported by the community with nearly 100 sponsors and an additional 180 donated silent auction items. “On behalf of Calvert Health System and the Foundation Board, we are so grateful to all our friends and supporters who made this evening possible. From our Harvest Ball Committee to our sponsors and attendees – thank you so much for making the 28th Annual Harvest Ball such a huge success. Your generosity will help us realize our vision of making a difference in every life we touch.” The annual black-tie charity event is one of the most successful fundraisers for the hospital. Since it began 28 years ago, the Harvest Ball has raised nearly $2 million for new medical technology and equipment at Calvert Memorial Hospital (CMH).

Police: Arrests Made Calvert County Sheriff’s Office In Cross County Press Releases Heroin Network By Guy Leonard Staff Writer

Working together, sheriff’s deputies from Calvert and St. Mary’s counties have made arrests and drug and evidence raids in each county in an attempt to stop an alleged heroin distribution ring, the commander of the St. Mary’s vice/narcotics revealed Monday. “These are true and long lasting partnerships with our fellow law enforcement agencies,” Capt.

Gov. Larry Hogan started his tour of Southern Maryland Monday by talking with students at Mt. Harmony Elementary School in Owings and told them that despite the challenges in life they should never give up on their dreams. “Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something,” Hogan said, telling the young children in the school library that when he decided to run for governor nobody believed he could win. “But we did,” Hogan said. “There will be tough times in life… but don’t ever give up.” Hogan talked to the children about his administration’s plans to spend about $12.4 billion on education and that spending money to teach children was the most important thing government did. “Education really is our No. 1 priority,” Hogan said. “We spend more money on education that we have before.” Children asked him questions from what he thought was the hardest part about being

the governor — he said there just wasn’t enough time in the day to get things done — and if he was a Redskins fan. He was a fan of the Redskins, he told one young boy, “but I’m a Ravens fan, too.” Hogan took the chance, also, to tout some of his economic achievements as governor after student Amber Benson asked him what the biggest change has been for Maryland since he became governor. “I think it was turning the economy around,” Hogan said. “We were ranked 49th out of 50 states for economic growth, now we’re at 11th out of 50. “It’s the greatest economic improvement of any of the states in the nation.” Hogan toured Southern Maryland with the intent of making a major transportation announcement in Newburg, which insiders said would involve rebuilding the Harry W. Nice bridge. guyleonard@countytimes.net

Firearms Deer Season Opens Next Week The Maryland Department of Natural Resources announced Monday that the two-week firearm deer season opens Nov. 26 and runs through Dec. 10. Hunters may use firearms to harvest sika and whitetailed deer during this season. “The two-week firearm season is our most popular hunting opportunity,” said Wildlife and Heritage Service Director Paul Peditto. “Not only is the harvest over this period a critical part of the department’s deer management program, it also allows hunters to spend time outdoors with family and friends after the holidays.” The bag limits for the season are:

Statewide: One antlered white-tailed deer. Three sika deer, no more than one antlered. Region A: One antlerless white-tailed deer. Antlerless deer season is open Dec. 9-10 on private land and Dec. 10 on public land. Hunters may only take two antlerless deer total for the license year. Region B: Ten antlerless white-tailed deer. One bonus antlered white-tailed may be taken per year during a weapon season of the hunter’s choice. A hunter must first take two antlerless white-tailed deer and purchase a Bonus Antlered Deer Stamp before taking a second antlered deer.

New this year: Sika deer season is open in all counties, Hunters in Caroline County may use a rifle or handgun during the firearm seasons, and Changes have been made to the Chronic Wasting Disease Management Area. Hunters are reminded an antler point restriction has been instituted for whitetailed deer. One may harvest up to two antlered deer per license year, which have two or fewer points on each antler present. Any additional antlered deer taken within the legal seasons and bag limits must have at least three points on one antler. Licensed junior hunters are exempt from the restriction. Those hunters who use tree stands are strongly advised to wear a full-body safety harness, which should be secured at all times, including while climbing up or down the stand. Using a sliding knot, commonly known as a prussic knot, attached to a line that is tied above the tree stand allows hunters to be secure from when they leave the ground to when they return.

Seahawks Men’s Basketball Wins Against Spalding

The Basics Score: St. Mary’s 73, Spalding 67 (OT) Records: St. Mary’s (2-1), Spalding (0-2) Location: St. Mary’s City, Md. · Michael P. O’Brien Athletics & Recreation Center Arena The Short Story: Junior guard Ochae Bynum (Waldorf, Md./North Point) poured in a season-best 24 points in leading the St. Mary’s College of Maryland men’s basketball team to an overtime win Sunday afternoon. The Seahawks picked up a 73-67 victory over Spalding University in the consolation game of the Dan Greene Memorial Invitational. How It Happened Bynum dropped 10 of his 24 points in the extra frame as St. Mary’s outscored the Golden Eagles, 14-8, to secure its second win of the season and third place at the Dan Greene Memorial Invitational. He went 3-of-3 from the floor and 4-of-6 from the free throw line. Bynum scored the opening basket of the game before junior forward James Abrams (Bessemer, Ala./Bessemer) gave Spalding a four-point lead at the 10:39-minute mark, forcing a Seahawk timeout. Following the timeout, St. Mary’s used a 25-10 run to establish a 33-24 halftime lead as Bynum capped the run with a three-pointer. Juniors Delaszo Smith (Baltimore, Md./ Annapolis) and Alie Kondeh (Laurel, Md./Ideal Academy PCS) paced the Seahawks at halftime with nine points each. As a team, St. Mary’s shot 33.3-percent

from downtown to the Golden Eagles’ 0-of-5 effort. Spalding would take over in the second half and outscore the hosts 35-26 in the second half. The Golden Eagles erased an 11-point deficit with a 13-2 run to start the half and built a 49-41 lead at the 10:06-minute mark on a layup by sophomore guard Dominique Ellis (Louisville, Ky./North Bullitt). St. Mary’s worked its way back into the lead with a 16-8 run as Smith scored the last four points of the run. Two free throws by senior guard James Turner (Louisville, Ky./Western) tied up the game and then an Ellis block and defensive rebound allowed SU to take the lead with 45 seconds left in regulation. Junior wing Lavonte Sanders (Upper Marlboro, Md./Wise) forced overtime with a bucket 22 seconds later. Turner put up two layups but both missed as time expired. Inside the Box Score Bynum shot 9-of-12 from the field with two triples while adding two rebounds. Smith would finish with 17 points, 4 boards, two assists, and two steals while Sanders grabbed a team-best six caroms plus four points.

Albert William “Billy” Wells

A Great Southern Maryland Thanksgiving Story By Dave Spigler Feature Writer Southern Maryland is blessed to have so many wonderful people who do things for others with no expectation or desire to have their story told in the social media or any media for that matter. Most do not seek any publicity for their good works and often turn down any attempts for an interview. There is a gentleman that for years has been quietly taking care of our citizens and charitable organizations while remaining anonymous to all but his closest friends and staff. He is a man with a good heart and willingness to help others whenever the opportunity presents itself. Albert William Wells, known to everyone as “Billy” is one of those gents you cannot help but like from the moment you are introduced to him. Naturally cheerful with a ready smile, he is the kind of guy you want as a friend. He never says “no” whenever he is approached to help with a worthy cause. And, under full disclosure, this story was prepared without his prior knowledge. Billy was born and raised in Upper Marlboro, but often came down to Solomons because of his great love for fishing and boating. As a child he spent most of his free time crabbing in North Beach. Anyone who has been through Upper Marlboro may recognize the name Wells; his family has owned and operated the Wells Corner liquor store since 1901. He was taught at an early age to

take care of those less fortunate than himself. It is readily apparent he took to heart his family’s teaching and has practiced it well. During one of his regular fishing trips to Solomons, he passed a vacant building with a for sale sign just off Route 2/4. It was then he decided he wanted to open a restaurant in lower Calvert County. A natural entrepreneur at heart, Billy’s first opportunity to earn a little money started prior to becoming a teenager. He loved cinnamon sticks and set out to learn how to make them. While he didn’t get rich from selling these sweet treats at 10 cents a piece, it did provide some pocket money and gave him the ability to buy things his friends could not afford. At the age of 13, he started working on charter boats as a mate for the boat captains and looking after the boating party with their fishing rods and tackle, bait and anything else required to make the outing a success. He learned to clean the fish that were caught for the boaters, then clean the boat from stem to stern once they docked. It was a long, hard workday, but he enjoyed it. Then at 15, his dad passed away and he had to help with running the family owned liquor business. At a very early age, all of this experience helped prepare him to run a business of his own one day. In 1990, he opened Boomerang’s Origi-

nal Ribs. Over the years, his business has continually grown in size and popularity. He recently redid his establishment, upgrading the dining area and the bar area. But this story isn’t about his superb business and its wonderful staff; it’s about his enormous generosity to share his culinary talents and ability to provide a large quantity of prepared food for many fundraisers and charitable events throughout Southern Maryland. Billy is the first to admit he is not a wealthy person, but he enjoys giving what he can when he sees a need. And, while not rich, he does donate many gift cards and dinner certificates each year. For more than 15 years, he was always the first one to jump up and support the annual Fall Hogettes Sunday Benefit for Children’s Hospital held in Lusby. He provided large amounts of chicken, potato salad and coleslaw to feed the more than 250 folks who attended this popular event, even giving gift certificates to be used as door prizes. He regularly volunteers at Holy Face Church in Great Mills, preparing food for their events, and helping man their food booth at the St. Mary’s County Fair every year. Additionally, he helps with their annual Parish Advent Festivals. Further, he regularly volunteers at the Little Flower Catholic School in St. Mary’s County as well as the Our Lady Star of the Sea School in Solomons. Each year he donates 20% of his restaurant’s Friday sales during Lent to these schools. He has continually prepared food and donated it to the Three Oaks Center in Lexington Park. Recently, Billy was spotted in his white apron manning the long food table to feed the throng of guests attending the funeral reception for long time Our Lady‘s Deacon Jack Etzel who passed following a lengthy illness. And true to form, Billy and his staff served up a scrumptious lunch to the more than 200 family and friends who were in attendance. Billy has been a regular volunteer with the St. Leonard Lions Football organization for many years. He remains a stalwart in all of their fundraising efforts. He undoubtedly is a longtime friend of the youth of Southern Maryland and is a “softie” when it comes to supporting children in need. He quietly donates many gift cards, baskets, and tailgate parties to many other organizations and often holds Spirit Night at his establishment for these same folks. This wonderful gentleman has worked hard for a living almost his entire life. His work day is always long, but he does find time to relax and give attention to his family. He is devoted to his twin boys, Ryan and Daniel who are now 21 years old. He loves football and hockey and, of course, fishing. The one extravagance he allows himself is his love of horse racing; he is a longtime race horse owner. And he still finds time for the Calvert Waterman’s Association.

Albert William Wells

Billy’s idea of sharing sets a great example for all of us during this time of Thanksgiving. His contributions are extensive and his gifts to the community are given freely. Thank you for your abundant generosity, not only now, but throughout the year. While not seeking any publicity for yourself, your quiet efforts have had a tremendous impact on making this the “Land of Pleasant Living.” Billy Wells’ story is but one of the many wonderful stories of people who work hard all year to see that the hungry and undernourished members of our community are fed. We wish to acknowledge the great support of innumerable groups such as Bernie Fowler, Jr’s Farming4Hunger, St. John Vianney’s Food Pantry, Reverend Robert Hahn’s Chesapeake Church Outreach, the S.M.I.L.E Ecumenical Ministries, Solomons Methodist’s Weekend Backpack program and many, many other wonderful organizations scattered throughout the Tri County area who do so much for our needy. Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for all you for our citizens as well.

In God’s words there is great consolation, encouragement, and hope. There is healing for broken hearts. Every perplexing question concerning life, death, and the hereafter is fully and lovingly answered. Why does our loving, all-powerful God permit such heartaches to befall us? What lies beyond the grave? Will we ever see our loved ones again?

Pet of the Week

Meet Grace

My name is Grace. I was caught in a trap at a huge colony. A kind woman has been trapping all the cats there and taking them to Feral Cat Rescue to be spayed/neutered, given a rabies vaccine and dewormed. I was so small that they decided to take me in and work on domesticating me. I was born at the beginning of June of 2016. I have been going to the Petco in California, Md every Saturday and Sunday from 11 to 3 for

adoption events. Won’t you come meet me? I am very beautiful. You could fill out an application here and email it to diane@feralcatrescuemd.org. I can’t wait to find a home of my own or you can fill one out at Petco. I need to find a home. Won’t you consider me? Love you forever, Gracie
