Judge Clagett Talks About Drug Court, Paperless Office By Dick Myers Staff Writer Calvert County Circuit Court Administrative Judge Marjorie Clagett presented her annual State of the Court Report Feb 14 to the county commissioners. In the report the judge highlighted the move towards a paperless office, renovations to the courthouse and the successes of the two-year-old drug court. The drug court had its first graduation last August of the five graduates. She said four have jobs add the fifth is finishing college and has a job waiting upon graduation. The second graduation is planned for March 23rd with nine graduates anticipated. Judge Clagett said the drug court now has 80 attendees, the same size as Montgomery County’s program. She told the commissioners she hoped they would fund the program consistent with hat Montgomery County does. Drug court attendees are required to stay with the program for at least 18 months in order to graduate. When they are assigned by the court to the program they are given five years of supervised probation and technically they could stay with the program as long as five years or until they complete it Once they graduate they are on unsupervised probation. Commissioner Pat Nutter, who is on the drug court’s advisory board said he always believed the program would save money by diverting people from a costly stay in jail. Judge Clagett agreed: “We are taking away from the jail population.” County Administrator Terry Shannon said she had observed a decline in the jail

population recently and said the drug court could be saving he county the need to expand the detention center. Drug Court participants can become involved with the Farming for Hunger program and the judge praised the work done by Bernie Fowler, Jr. with the program’s participants. Judge Clagett said the drug court program had recently incorporated as a nonprofit 501©3 organization which allows them to receive donations. The judge also reported that the court systems conversion to a paperless office will be complete by June 12. Lawyers will be able to submit briefs and other filings online from their offices. She said there would be education programs on how to use the system, for the lawyers and the general public, sometime before it is initiated. The judge reported good progress on the courthouse renovation, which she said is coming in at budget. She said a large portrait of county Civil Rights legend Harriett Elizabeth Brown would soon hang in the main lobby as part of the renovation. A copy of the panting will also hang in the school board offices and at a community censer to be named for Brown. Brown sued the Calvert County Board of Education over the disproportionate salaries for black and white teachers. Thurgood Marshall, later to become Chief Judge of the U.S. Supreme Court, prepared the brief for the suit. dickmyers@countytimes.net

Calvert Cliffs Readied for Fueling Outage Two-thousand Temporary Workers Added Operators at Exelon Generation’s Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant removed Unit 2 from service just after midnight on Sunday to begin a planned refueling outage. The refueling outage will help ensure the unit runs safely and provides consistent, reliable power to the region for another two-year cycle. While the unit is offline, technicians will replace nearly one-third of the reactor’s fuel and perform more than 10,000 inspections, tests, maintenance activities and modifications. Many of the tasks performed during the outage cannot be accomplished while the unit is online. Additionally, this year, Calvert will be replacing a high pressure turbine on the non-nuclear side of the plant. This investment in state-of-the-art equipment is expected to result in an additional 19 megawatts of generation. “We are proud to have the opportunity to operate our nuclear power plant here in Calvert County. We want to continue meeting the region’s energy needs when they need us most: during the freezing temperatures of winter or the extreme heat of summer,”

said Calvert Cliffs Site Vice President George Gellrich. “By investing in equipment and performing the right maintenance during the outage, we ensure safe, reliable operations for years to come.” To support the refueling outage, approximately 2,000 additional workers will travel to Calvert for several weeks, filling nearby hotels to capacity and increasing foot traffic in restaurants and shops. “The annual refueling outage at Exelon Generation’s Calvert Cliffs station has been a positive economic boost for the businesses in Calvert County for many years,” said President/CEO of the Calvert County Chamber of Commerce Bill Chambers. “This year will be no exception. The Calvert Chamber continues to field numerous inquiries from outage personnel coming into the County for housing, dining and amenity options. The outage is just another example of Exelon Generation contributing so much to the vitality of the Calvert business community.” From Exelon Generation Communications

U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.) released the following statement Feb. 10 regarding the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that the suspension of President Trump’s immigration orders will stay in place: “The President should immediately rescind his discriminatory executive order targeting Muslim refugees and travelers. His rush to act has made America less safe, damaged our relationships with our allies, and harmed countless numbers of law-abiding citizens, travelers, and their families. America is a compassionate nation steeped with a history of immigrants and refugees. President Trump still does not understand that this diversity makes us stronger as a country, not weaker. Instead, the President should turn the page on his divisive campaign rhetoric

and work with Congress on a bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform proposal like the Senate passed in 2013. “Last night the Ninth Circuit provided a valuable check and balance on the President’s authority. This should be a teachable moment for the President on the separation of powers and rule of law, and a reminder of the three equal and independent branches of government that have all sworn to uphold the Constitution. No American president is above the law. This president should stop denigrating judges and members of Congress and move on to a more viable and legal pathway to immigration reform that protects our nation and upholds American values.” From Office of Sen. Ben Cardin

Grandmother Charged Fatal Striking Under With Poisoning Child Investigation

By Guy Leonard Staff Writer

By Guy Leonard Staff Writer

A Calvert County District Court judge ruled Monday morning that a woman charged with poisoning her own grandchild with methadone must remain in local detention with no possibility of bond. Judith Ann Tetreault, 55, of Lusby faces charges of first-and-second-degree child abuse, first-degree assault, attempted poisoning, neglect of a minor and distribution of narcotics. The child, a one-year-old boy, remains in critical condition following the alleged poisoning, police have reported. Police say that the child’s mother left him with Tetreault at her Roundup Road residence Feb. 9 but received continual texts stating that the child would not stop crying and that his stomach felt hard. Other texts, sent at about 2p.m. that day, from Tetreault to the child’s mother read

“Don’t be mad at me” and “I did not drug him.” The mother returned later Feb.9 to pick her child up and found that he lacked energy and even had a purple-colored complexion, charging papers stated. The mother took her child to Calvert Memorial Hospital for treatment; doctors and nurses began using naloxone to bring the child around but were unsatisfied with the results. They transferred the child to Georgetown University Medical Center for more care, police reports stated. Tests revealed that the child tested positive for methadone, a narcotic used to wean addicts off of heroin and other opioids; detectives found that Tetreault had a prescription for liquid methadone from a Baltimore facility. The child’s mother told medical staff at Georgetown that the child’s drink cup smelled suspicious; doctors were able to confirm that the overdose of the child took place at about the same time that Tetreault texted the mother about her child’s continual crying. guyleonard@countytimes.net

Northern Patriots hoist the Chesapeake Cup in celebration Northern Patriots hoist the Chesapeake Cup in celebration

Northern Patriots Win Chesapeake Cup; Advance to State Tournament

By Zach Hill Contributing Writer Last Friday, February 10th, Northern High School’s ice hockey team skated their way to winning the Maryland Scholastic Hockey League’s Southern Conference against Leonardtown and took home the grand prize, the Chesapeake Cup. Leonardtown was hoping to repeat their outcome from last year’s Chesapeake Cup tournament but ultimately were unable to defend their title and fell, 6-2. Prior to the game, Northern came into the bracket as the number one seed in the Southern Conference and only had to go through one team, Thomas Stone, to get to the final. Leonardtown did not have such an easy time getting there. The low seed went through St. Mary’s Ryken II by a score of 6-1, and upset the second seeded Huntingtown 5-4 to make it to the final. “We knew that Leonardtown had some momentum going into the game.” Northern’s Head Coach Erik Larsen said. “They beat Huntingtown by getting an early jump on them and forcing them to try and play catch up. We expected that would be their strategy against us as well.” Out of all of the teams in the Southern Conference, Northern definitely earned

their right to be in the final the most of all. After losing their home ice rink, Tucker Road, to a fire earlier this season which forced them to give up precious practice time, the Patriots still managed to win all of their conference games. Before the game, Coach Larsen was sure to remind his team about the struggles they went through to get to where they were that night. “We spoke about all the hard work we did to get to the championship game.” Larsen said. “We won every conference game of the season and earned the right to win the cup. But Leonardtown isn’t going to give it to us without a fight. We spoke about gaining control of the game early and and forcing Leonardtown to chase us. The players really delivered.” Deliver the Patriots did by going up 3-0 in just the first period, taking complete control of the game from the start. The second period ran a similar story line to the first with Northern outscoring Leonardtown 2-1 bringing the score at the end of the second period to 5-1. The real boost going into the third period came from #81, Captain Brian Middledorf, when he managed to pull off a buzzer beater

goal at an extremely tight angle just as the second period’s time expired. Many players and coaches laughed and told Brian Middledorf after that they had never seen a buzzer beater before in a hockey game. Eventually, both Northern and Leonardtown would tack on one more goal in the third and Northern would get to rush the ice to their excitement of a 6-2 win. Both teams received their respective medals and then the Northern Patriots were given the privilege of hoisting the Chesapeake Cup. Captain Brian Middledorf had the honor of receiving the trophy and brought it back just to find himself surrounded in celebration with his teammates and coaches. Coach Larsen called Captain Middledorf the “star of the game”, and for very good reason.The large senior forward Brian Middledorf managed to put up four goals for his team. However, it was the defense and depth of the team that Coach Larsen emphasized as the biggest reason for their success. “I think the key for us was the strength of our defensive play.” Larsen said. “Leonardtown has some talented players that can be dangerous. Our guys did a really good job of limiting Leonardtown’s offensive opportunities. We held them to only 16 shots.

Thursday, February 16, 2017 That enabled us to spend more time attacking their offensive zone with 33 shots on net This year we [had] a deeper bench with more options than they did. They focused their top players against Brian Middledorf’s line of Eric Bennett and Michael Cross. Our second line of Justin Lantz, Thomas Bruening and Wesley Crofoot is as equally strong as our first line. When it came down to it, both our teams matched up well on our top lines. The differences came down to the 2nd and 3rd line match ups.” Winning “The Cup” is truly an iconic moment in any sport. It is what all spectators want to see their team do and that feeling is only heightened when you are the coach. “They worked hard all season and to witness them enjoying and realizing their accomplishment is definitely a highlight I won’t forget. I am so proud to be part of their team this season.” Northern now will advance to play in the MSHL State tournament. They have been placed at the high seed of 3rd following their outstanding conference record. The Patriots will begin their journey to the championship on Friday, February 17th, against the 14th seeded Walt Whitman team at the Capital Clubhouse at 6 p.m.

CSM Soccer Players Sign Intent Letters Three members of the College of Southern Maryland’s women’s soccer team have been awarded scholarships and signed their intent to play for the Glenville State College Pioneers in the fall 2017 season. Glenville State College is a public college located in Glenville, West Virginia. Danielle Bowling of Faulkner, Kelly Bruce of Brandywine and Julia Lesko of La Plata will be playing in the inaugural season for Glenville’s women’s soccer team. Bowling is in her second year at CSM, where she is majoring in business administration. She graduated from La Plata High School. “Danielle’s outstanding footwork was obvious from day one, she has an instinctive first touch that makes it look like she is playing in more space than every other player on the field,” said Barry McGrellis, women’s soccer head coach. “A less obvious characteristic that emerged as the season progressed is her toughness. The team went on a run late in the season that was almost entirely built on Danielle deciding that opponents would not get through her midfield without a fight. She grew into an excellent all-round midfielder and I can’t wait to see her play at the next level.” Bowling played for two years at CSM. During her two-year career at CSM, she started in 25 out of 26 games, had one goal and six assists. Bruce is in her third year at CSM, where she is majoring in elementary education. She

graduated from Grace Christian Academy in Waldorf. “Kelly was an absolute rock for CSM last year,” McGrellis said. “She has fantastic size for her position and is as pure an athlete as we had on the roster. While she is very fast, she rarely has to use her speed because her positioning is incredible, she reads the game with amazing awareness and approaches the art of defending with a mature head, never lunging into a challenge. When she inevitably does take the ball from the opposition her ability to distribute quickly and start attacks shines through, she has a very good range of passing and can see every pass on the field. She will be a valuable player to her new program.” At CSM, Bruce played one year, starting in 14 games and having one assist. Lesko is in her second year at CSM, where she is majoring in secondary education. She is a graduate of Maurice J. McDonough High School. “Julia is a player we were ecstatic to have the privilege of seeing at a twoyear school,” McGrellis said. “She moves with the ball like she was born to do it and strikes it like a pro. Her unlimited ability is coupled with incredible athleticism making her a formidable player regardless of where she is playing on the field. Her soccer brain allowed me to move her around within our system with the confidence that she would fit in seamlessly. With that said, she is a forward who will frighten defenders in the NCAA; pace, IQ, power, and technique. She is such an exciting prospect.” Lesko played for CSM for two years. During those two seasons, Lesko started in 26 out of 26 games. She made 15 goals and seven assists. This past season, five of her goals were game-winners. CSM is one of the only multicampus community colleges in Maryland where you can take classes online or on any campus and play in your choice of 12 NJCAA athletic programs.

Feature Story

The Calvert County Times

Thursday, February 16, 2017

Calvert Restaurant Week is Here Spiggy Cruises 29 Restaurant Options By Dave Spigler Feature Writer With great anticipation, I awaited Calvert County’s ”2017 Calvert County Restaurant Week.” Scheduled for Friday, Feb. 17 through Sunday, Feb. 27, this popular event grows larger every year. This is the fifth year this annual culinary extravaganza is put on by the Calvert County’s Department of Economic Development and Tourism in conjunction with nearly 30 restaurants from Dunkirk. The Beaches, Sunderland, Prince Frederick, St. Leonard, Lusby, to Solomons. Many are old traditional favorites such as Trader’s and The Rod and Reel in Chesapeake Beach, and Mama Lucia’s in Dunkirk and Prince Frederick. Further south, The Tavern in St. Leonard, the Ruddy Duck, Boomerang’s and Kingfisher’s are prepared for the large crowds to enjoy their favorite scrumptious meals that are carefully prepared and offered at special prices. Newer eateries such as The Brick in Prince Frederick, Yo Momma’s in Prince Frederick and their new Pub in the Lusby Towne Square, and the Pier in Solomons recently opened under new ownership, are providing special menus to attract the public to their establishments to sample their fares in hopes to introduce you to their dining experience. I can hardly wait to grab my fork and knife! The idea to create a week of special lunches and dinners at a reduced price is not new. Many of the restaurants in Washington, DC, a town with more than a thousand choices of places to eat traditional meals from most every country of the world has conducted this type of promotion for years. These events there have grown popular as many of DC’s “world class” eateries with their famous chefs normally offer meals at exorbitant prices that are well beyond the average diners’ ability to pay. During DC’s promotion, many of their local citizens there are given an opportunity to sample meals they, nor I, would otherwise be able to afford.

Fortunately, this is not necessarily the case in Southern Maryland. While the choices of national dishes here are not as extensive as those available up in the “Big City”, the selection runs the gamut from Japanese, to Thai, to Indian cuisine. And of course, the restaurants specializing in Italian or Mexican and American fare are readily available. But the more popular and most frequented establishments here in Calvert are our many famous fine seafood houses that draw on the region’s bounty and provide unique dining opportunities. As stated in the County’s website, “whether your favorite fare is fresh seafood from our river or our Bay, Italian cuisine or anything in between, Restaurant Week has something to satisfy every palate.” The idea to showcase our county wide restaurants with their creative cookery and offer their delicious meals at budget friendly prices during the month of February did not come about by accident. It is well known in the food industry that the months following the Christmas and New Year’s Holidays is a very slow period for many obvious reasons and possibly a few that may not be so clear. The average American, including me, has a tendency to overeat during the Holiday period, often putting on 5-8 pounds during the time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. And, like me, most of these same glutinous celebrants immediately start the New Year with resolutions to lose weight, avoid large meals, and not to eat out. Many realize they need to get ready to prepare their yearly state and federal Income taxes and vow not to spend any additional disposal income until they know whether they owe additional taxes or not! But an even bigger reason may have to do with the February weather, normally very cold, damp and blustery. It’s the kind of weather that is not very conducive to getting dressed to go out and brave the elements to have a meal out!

Fortunately for us, some pretty savvy people in county government got together with a few county restauranteurs with excess capacity and time on their hands and decided one way to get folks out of their warm, cozy cabins was to offer a delicious selection of their specialties at really attractive prices. This idea grew all over the county to become a favorite, much anticipated winter event. It provides both locals and visitors the opportunity to sample some of our best restaurants offerings at excellent prices. Many participating establishments offer special menus for both lunch and dinner, but may not offer promotional prices for both. As an “unofficial” self-appointed “Ambassador for Calvert County” for the past several years interested in bringing to life with my writings all the wonderful unsung heroes of the county as well as to highlight the truly outstanding attractions that make our county great, I readily volunteered for this arduous assignment knowing I would have to let out my belt a notch or two once I was finished. So to get started, here is some good advice to be considered: • Make reservations early as many of the popular restaurants get booked up. • Not all establishments in the County are participating. When making reservations ensure the restaurant is involved in this promotion. • When making reservations check and see if they are offering both lunch and dinner menus. • Most restaurants have created special menus for this celebration, however they will still offer their regular fare during this time. • Restaurants reserve the right to NOT allow these promotions to be combined with discount coupons or other sales promotions. • Prices and offerings are subject to change depending on availability. • Tax, gratuity, beverages and alcohol are not included in fixed price Restaurant Week menus. • With my friends Glen and Denise, my wife Deb and I set out to “sample” a good number of the offerings of these eateries to prepare this “difficult” story. And with a full stomach and a bottle of Pepto-Bismol nearby, I put together this “Guide to the Participating Restaurants” with the help of the County Department of Economic Development and Tourism. Not only did it require tasting many of the various fares, this job required research and investigations that lasted well into the night! For additional information or to make reservations, phone numbers are provided. Enjoy the region’s delicious bounty with a unique dining experience! These establishments have something to satisfy everyone’s palate at exceptional prices.

CSM Announces Kids’ & Teen College Programs Now is the time to plan for your children’s activities during the summer months. Parents who would like to give their child the chance to have fun while learning should consider the College of Southern Maryland Kids’ & Teen College, a more than 30-year proven program of enrichment opportunities designed to expand a student’s idea of what is possible. CSM’s Kids & Teen College is the largest summer camp program in Southern Maryland and has options for children ages 5 to 14. Registration opens Feb. 15 for approximately 300 classes being offered over eight weeks at all CSM campuses — Forensic Science, Lego Math, Minecraft Designers, Speaking Spanish, Junior Chef, Make Your First 3-D Video Game, Digital Photography, Cupcake Wars and Spaceflight Institute are just a few examples that show the range of available classes. “We want everyone to have a great experience here,” said John Terlesky, CSM’s youth program coordinator. New classes this year that Terlesky expects to be particularly popular include Virtual Reality, where participants will create their own virtual worlds, explore simulated environments and craft memorable 3D experiences. Participants will receive a Google Cardboard viewer to take home after the program. Cybersecurity, which will be taught by CSM professors, is another new class that is expected to be

popular with students, Terlesky said. Other historically popular classes include those involving STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics), robot design, LEGO, Minecraft, theater and cooking themes. “They fill up very quickly,” Terlesky said, encouraging parents to register early. Approximately 20 percent of the courses offered at CSM’s Kids’ & Teen College this year are technology-related classes provided through Black Rocket, a creative sciences enrichment provider based in New Jersey. Black Rocket assists camps with project-based programs that foster 21st century skills like peer learning, creativity and technology awareness. The Black Rocket classes don’t end after the week-long CSM session. Students are given links to continue their learning at home through an online training portal. The Virtual Reality class is an example of a Black Rocket class. “The kids really respond to projectbased learning,” said Angela Russo, director of operations for Black Rocket. “It makes it real for them … We believe every human being is unique in their ability and talents. Black Rocket’s mission is to help ignite, unleash and enhance these distinct talents.” Angie Rohrer is a sixth-grade math teacher at Esperanza Middle School throughout the school year. Rohrer believes that students of every age should take ad-

vantage of the summer months to continue to expand their math and science skills, as well other interests, just in a different way. Rohrer is the supervisor for Black Rocket classes in Southern Maryland and an enthusiastic advocate. “I think in the summer they can really have fun and explore,” Rohrer said. She observed the students’ responses to last year’s Black Rocket classes as CSM’s Kids’ & Teen College and noted the enthusiasm of the students. “The kids just come into the class so excited,” she said. “I love seeing kids love learning.” Rohrer also said that Black Rocket classes come with phenomenal technical support, which “inspires students’ creativity, imagination and curiosity in technology.” Rohrer encouraged area parents and their children to review the classes being offered

Thursday, February 16, 2017 and register for something that interests them, even if it is something that they have no previous knowledge in. “Kids don’t necessarily have to have prerequisite knowledge to benefit from our classes,” she said. “Don’t be afraid to sign up for something that interests you. We’ll have a great time.” CSM’s Kids’ & Teen College features two sessions, the first is from 9 a.m. to noon and the second is from 1 to 4 p.m. There is a supervised lunch hour in between the two sessions for those students participating in both the morning and afternoon sessions. For working parents, CSM offers the options of extended day supervision of students from 7 to 9 a.m. and/or from 4 to 6 p.m. for an extra fee.

Library Undertakes Facilities Master Plan

To keep pace with ongoing changes in technology, community demographics and the world in general, a Facilities Master Plan for Calvert Library is being undertaken. An outside consultant has been hired to create a plan which will ensure that the library continues to make the best decisions for the community regarding library services and facilities. An essential component of the process is community input, which will be collected through Community Input Meetings, focus groups, stakeholder meetings and a survey.  The 14-question survey is available now in English at http://bit.ly/clplansurvey and in Spanish athttp://bit.ly/clplansurveyspanish.  There is also a link on the library website at  CalvertLibrary.info.  Please participate in the survey and/or one of the scheduled community meetings. The library obtained a grant for this project through the state Division of Library Development and Services and has contracted with Providence Associates to gather data, facilitate the community engagement process and produce a final report. Providence is utilizing the services of RRMM Lukmire Architects to analyze Calvert Library’s current facilities.   The system-wide study will result in recommendations about library sizes, features, locations, updates and critical services with an eye to flexibility for long-term success. Calvert Library serves different purposes for different members of our community.  Some parents of young children use it to support the critical first five years of their child’s brain development through Storytime classes, Imagination Station play and lots of books.  Parents also come to the library to socialize with other adults and learn about other styles of parenting. Children come to find books to feed their imaginations and attend events on a wide variety of intriguing topics. Teens work on group projects, check out video games, music or movies or hang out with their friends.  Adults meet with clients, check email, research upcoming travels, find their next read or attend a workshop to improve their quality of life.  Entrepreneurs come to learn how to create a business plan, network, build a client base or get financing.  Seniors come to play games to keep their minds sharp or learn how to get the most from a new smartphone.  Some commuters just want audio books and more audio books. 

Some library customers rarely come into the library but have all their needs served by downloadable books and movies and online chat with a reference librarian. Many people prefer to get their questions answered in person by a librarian, and others prefer to do their own treasure hunting. Some come for solitude, some for learning, some for socializing. Providence Associates hopes to hear from hundreds of county residents whether it be by survey or face-to-face meetings.  Community Input Meetings are scheduled throughout the county.  The first will be at Calvert Pines in Prince Frederick at 7pm on Tuesday, February 28.  Wednesday, March 1, there will be a meeting 2-4pm at the Northeast Community Center.  That evening at 7pm, there will be a session at Dunkirk Fire Hall.  The final Community Input Meeting will be held at the Southern Community Center in Lusby on March 8 at 7pm.  These meetings provide an opportunity to share thoughts about what library services and facilities the community needs and wants.  Focus and stakeholder groups will be targeted to a variety of populations served by the library. The first focus group will be with teens on February 16 at Calvert Library Prince Frederick at 5pm. Business leaders will meet at the Chamber of Commerce in Prince Frederick at 8am on Wednesday, March 1.  Healthcare, nonprofits and other community builders will meet at the Calvert Memorial Hospital Classroom 1 at 8am on Thursday, March 2.  On the same day, parents of preschoolers will meet at Calvert Library Prince Frederick at 10:30am.  At 3pm that afternoon, the education community, including homeschoolers, will meet at the Board of Education.  The final focus group will be for active adults and will meet at 2pm on Friday, March 3, at Calvert Library Prince Frederick.  If you are interested in attending any of the focus or stakeholder groups, please RSVP to Robyn Truslow at  rtruslow@somd.lib.md.us with which group you would like to attend.  There will be light refreshments served at all of the events.  The whole community is strongly encouraged to participate in this process.  For more information, call Robyn Truslow at 410-535-0291.

Son to Share Father’s WWII POW Experience

Mornings with Mommy Coming in March

Is it fun? Or, is it educational? It’s a little bit of both. It’s called Mornings with Mommy -- educational play dates with Mommy (or Dads or other caregivers) and infants through pre-kindergarten. Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church is launching this innovative new activity beginning March 7 and running every first and third Tuesday of the month. Cost for each session is $5 per family. Sessions run from 10 to 11 a.mn. at the church at 9463 HG Trueman Road in Lusby. Mornings with Mommy isn’t pre-school and it isn’t childcare. It’s something different. Mornings with Mommy is a fun way for mothers (and fathers) to enjoy activities with their children and meet other parents. There will be age appropriate activities for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. And the best part is that the church members do all the planning. All you have to do is sign up and show up.

Moms can mingle with each other and enjoy activities with their children including arts and crafts, sensory table, flannel stories and story time, music, educational toys and a snack. Children love to play. They naturally pour all their attention into play activities. When adults can guide that energy with educational themes and group interaction amazing things happen. At Mornings with Mommies you will be there to share in your child’s discovery. Rachel Olson, wife of the church’s Pastor Josh Olson, is coordinator of Mornings with Mommies. She has a Bachelor of Science in Education and is a mother herself. From Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church.

Local resident Jon Frank will share his Father’s story and artifacts from the Battle of Bataan and 3 years as a Japanese Prisoner of War at Calvert Library Prince Frederick on March 14, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The collection is scheduled for donation to the National WW II Museum on April 5, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Battle’s final days and surrender on April 9, 1942. This was the largest surrender of U.S. Armed Forces in history. Col. Charles B. Frank served on active duty from 1941 until his retirement at Fort Meade in 1967. “When my Mother passed away in 2015, I assembled the family documents related to both my father and mother’s war time service. The materials have been in our family all our lives. While cataloguing and digitizing the letters, orders, telegrams and other items saved by my father and grandmother, I was also researching the events and history of the defense on Bataan and the role played by the US Army Veterinary Corps at that time,” explained Jon Frank.

“1LT Frank was the veterinarian to Battery A of the 23rd Field Artillery (PS), a pack unit with 48 horses and 80 mules in the field following the attack on Pearl Harbor. As the battle progressed, the unit was destroyed and he fulfilled other duties including replacement corral operation and food inspection.” Col. Frank was a POW from April 9, 1942 until liberation on September 7, 1945. He survived several “near misses” including a 49-day transfer from Manila to Japan involving three ships, multiple attacks and mishaps resulting in the death of 83% of the 1619 men making the journey on the Oryoku Maru. Col. Frank was awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart for his war time service. Join he Calvert Library to hear these stories and see some of the collected artifacts.
