The Calvert County Times Endorsements No Reason for Change Every candidate who has ever run for public office has said at one time or another during their campaign: “This is the most important election ever for (insert office or locality).” Those seeking reelection might vary it to say it’s their most important election ever . All clichés aside, this is indeed a very important election for Calvert County. The general election of Nov. 6, that begins today with early voting, is highly likely to place Larry Hogan in the governor’s chair for another four years. As a matter of fact, we pause right here to wholeheartedly endorse Gov. Hogan, whose centrist leadership has uniquely positioned him for significant bipartisan support. The other significant fact of Hogan’s likely reelection is that under Maryland law he will be term-limited. Since Maryland is still overwhelmingly Democratic, there is a better than average chance that the new governor in four years will be a Democrat. That fact will raise a boo or a cheer depending on what party one is in, but it does mean that what has been left undone over the last four years needs to be accomplished during the next four

years, if you believe in what Hogan has been doing, as we do. The most pressing needs for Southern Maryland are our infrastructure gaps, most notably roads and bridges. And the Big Kahuna of them all is the replacement of the Gov. Thomas Johnson Bridge and completion of the road network on either side. Calvert County has the additional needs for completion of Routes 2/4 in Prince Frederick and improvements of both roads through Calvert. Route 231 is beginning to appear on everyone’s radar as a very dangerous road in need of help. Even though it is located in St. Mary’s County, the third building for unmanned work at the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center, is also a need for Calvert residents who work on base or for defense contractors. Our endorsements for the Calvert County legislative delegation are thus predicated on our argument that getting those projects done can best be left in the hands of those who ae already in office. Our one proviso, and it is a strong one, is the observation that they all have had four years (except for Jerry Clark’s two

years) to get the job done during Hogan’s first term, including Hogan himself. Democrats, Senator Mike Miller (District 27) and Delegate Michael Jackson (27B) are important to reelect because they have the ears of the Democratic-controlled legislature, an important player in accomplishing Calvert’s infrastructure needs. Miller has devoted years to protecting his home county and deserves another four years. Normally our tendency would be to

support a Calvert resident for Jackson’s District 27B seat since he is from Prince George’s County. But he has lived up to his promise four years ago and has been in Calvert often and has proven to be a strong advocate for the county. We should note that his Republican opponent Michael Thomas has run an impressive campaign and we hope he continues to stay active. Republican delegates Mark Fisher (27C) and Jerry Clark (29C) deserve Continues on page 4

The Calvert County Times

Thursday, October 25, 2018

Continued from page 5 to be elected because they have the ear of Gov. Hogan, perhaps the key player in the area’s infrastructure battle. Fisher especially appears poised to take a leadership role in those struggles. While the voters should reelect the four legislators, it should also be a clear message to them that they will not tolerate a lack of success on the infrastructure needs if they are unmet four years from now. We also endorse Republican Jack Bailey for the District 29 Senate seat. He is clearly the best candidate, and since he is endorsed by Hogan, hopefully he can use his influence with the governor to advocate for the region’s needs. Fisher’s opponent, attorney Jason Fowler, has run a good campaign and appears to be a bright light for the local Democratic Party. County Commissioner Races Since the commissioner board will have a majority of new members, we feel it can be made its most optimal by returning the two incumbents, Mike Hart (District 1) and Steve Weems (At-Large). Hart has grown tremendously in the job he admittedly was clueless about four year ago and deserves a second term. Weems is seeking his third term and as such, should assume the leadership role on the board. But, he at times has been frustratingly uninterested in assuming that role, instead seeming to want to wait to see how everyone else votes. He needs to step up in the next four years.

For Commissioner District 2 to replace the popular Pat Nutter, there are two extremely qualified candidates and we wish they weren’t running against each other. But our choice is Thomas “Tim” Hutchins over Susie HanceWells. We like Hutchins’ vision for a job center and tech park in northern Calvert. He recognizes the need for more jobs to keep our young people here. Hutchins has an extremely impressive resume of service. For 3rd Commissioner District, our choice is Democrat Holly Budd. We believe the board needs a woman’s perspective and additionally she brings a strong business background as owner of a fairly large printing business. We feel her challenger Kelly McConkey has not been effective on the school board other than recently with the school security issue. His answer during The County Times candidate’s interview that he has not spoken up much during meetings because most everything is discussed beforehand in closed session is disturbing to us. For the second At-Large seat, we endorse Earl “Buddy” Hance, who also has an impressive resume of service locally and on the state level as Secretary of Agriculture. He has a thorough knowledge of the issues and we feel he would be a leader on the board. Calvert County Sheriff Democratic challenger Michael Hawkins, a retired state trooper, has

some strong points about diversity and manpower needs, and his opinions should be taken to heart. But we at this point see no reason for the voters of Calvert County not to return Mike Evans to another four-year term. His dedication to his county and his office are without reproach. Register of Wills There has probably never been a more dedicated, yet humble public servant in Calvert County’s history than Margaret Phipps. She has been a leader in the state in bringing the Register of Wills offices into the 21st Century, even though she herself has been in the office for 40

years. Unquestionably she should be returned to office. Her opponent Republican Mark Lynch is also highly qualified, but he should wait his turn and run again in four years. U.S. House of Representatives Bringing home the bacon has been the theme of these endorsements so far. Steny Hoyer has been doing that for decades, including much of what we see at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station. He should be reelected. We hope he will continue that history of success by helping state and local officials bring home federal funding for the Gov. Thomas Johnson Bridge.

For the 2018 General Election, voters can vote in person or by absentee ballot. To vote in person, voters can vote before election day at a designated early voting center in their county of residence or on election day at the polling place for their residence. Early voting centers will be open for voting from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm from Thursday, October 25th through and including Thursday, November 1st. There is at least one early voting center in each county, and voters should vote at a designated early voting center in their county of residence. A list of early voting locations can be found at: elections.mary-

Calvert County’s early voting location is at Community Resources Building 30 Duke Street – Lower Level, Prince Frederick, MD 20678 Voters who prefer to vote on election day can vote on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. On election day, polling places will be open for voting from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm. To avoid delays, voters should try to vote between the hours of 10:00 am and 4:00 pm.

Library Site Selection Reopened North Beach Deal Falls Through

North Beach Mayor Mark Frazer

By Dick Myers Editor The Twin Beaches towns of North and

Chesapeake Beach are going back into the boxing ring after all. It appeared months ago that North Beach had won out over Chesapeake Beach for the right to be the new home of the Twin Beaches Library. The Calvert County Board of Library Trustees had selected North Beach’s proposal, after several furtive starts and stops in the process. But the negotiations for the town’s preferred property, at Chesapeake Avenue and 3rd Street fell through. “We thought we had a deal to purchase the property,” Mayor Mark Frazer told The County Tines. He said the town wouldn’t have submitted the proposal if they thought it wouldn’t pan out. But, Frazer said negotiations with developer Ron Russo fell through. The town is thus submitting another proposal for the location of their first submission, the town-owned property that is now used as a parking lot. It is across the street from the town’s boardwalk and pier. Chesapeake Beach has been a player in the game all along, proposing town property near Kellum’s Field park. May-

or Pat Mahoney has consistently felt his town’s proposal was superior. He said he isn’t going to say what they are going to submit other than to say it might be modified from their earlier plan. Mahoney points out the town’s history of financial support for the existing library, which is now in town. The new deadline for submissions is Oct. 31, according to a press release from the Library Board of Trustees. That release said, “To date, no action has been taken nor funds expended in anticipation of the land transfer.” Library Director Carrie Plymire told the two towns, “The BOLT [Board of Library Trustees] has added a preference for non-contingent offers and we’ve asked for proposals by October 31 in order to keep the process moving and to preserve the option of the state grant. However, I have asked Chesapeake Beach to let me know if they need more time.” BOLT President Martha Grahame noted, “The Twin Beaches area deserves a new library in an accessible location…the sooner the better. But we

will not rush the process and risk ending up with a less than ideal location. We want the best possible solution for the community.” dickmyers@countytimes.net

Planners Approve Lusby Shooting Range By Dick Myers Editor The Calvert County Planning Commission has approved a firearm’s training facility at the Appeal Landfill in Lusby. The facility has been in the planning stages for four years, according to Director of Planning Mark Willis. The range will be located at 401 Sweetwater Road in Lusby on a 202.98 acre parcel, zoned Rural Conservation District (RCD.) A 1,152-square-foot storage structure is proposed there. The county’s zoning ordinance requires such facilities be at least 500 feet from neighboring property lines, but it is less than that at the northern boundary. In answer to concerns from commission member John Toohey, the planners were told that adjacent land is now also owned by the county. It is the location of the proposed park on land donated by Dominion. That park property will have a fence along its perimeter at least 750 feet from the range and no access through it. There is also a Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative transmission line through the property and the co-op in-

formed the planning staff that they do have periodic inspections of the line. So, the planners were told those visits will be coordinated with any firing, and if there is firing going on a flag will be raised at the gate as a warning for SMECO personnel. According to the staff report presented to the planning commission, “The National Rifle Association (NRA) Range Department conducted a site evaluation. The NRA range evaluation is not a requirement but provides suggestions for increasing the safety of operating firing ranges. Most of the suggestions in the evaluation have been implemented to the extent possible. The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) has implemented a range operation and safety manual, that is given to every officer who trains on the firing range. The CCSO also maintains a Range Master and Certified Range Safety Officer (RSO) that oversees hours of operation for officer training and certification.” The Appeal Training Facility was unanimously approved by the planning commission at their Oct. 17 meeting. dickmyers@countytimes.net

Regulators Deny Exelon’s Violation Appeal By Dick Myers Editor The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has denied the appeal of Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant operator Exelon’s challenge of a violation notice. The violation, called a “Non-Cited Violation (NCV)” involved “a failure by plant personnel to conduct surveys, or checks, of radiation levels in a reactor coolant pump bay area,” according to

NRC spokesman Neil Sheehan. The NRC states in their response to Exelon’s challenge, “The NRC considered Exelon’s position that requiring the performance of surveys to verify that as-built design features are maintained would set a costly new precedence resulting in licensees performing additional unnecessary radiation surveys. It is the NRC’s position, as clarified in the enclosure to this letter, that when highly radioactive sources such as the withdrawn

Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant

in-core instrumentation are moved and stored in a new plant location, it is reasonable under such circumstances to appropriately evaluate the radiological impact of the proposed activity and take actions, as necessary, commensurate with the potential risk to workers.” According to Sheehan: “In February, during a refueling and maintenance outage at the Calvert Cliffs 1 Nuclear Power Plant, plant personnel used a different method of storing in-core detectors. These detectors use a small probe that is connected to a flexible drive cable and are periodically moved in and out of the reactor vessel to measure power levels. Because the detectors travel among the

nuclear fuel rods in the reactor vessel, they become radioactive.” The NRC’s quarterly inspection report for Calvert Cliffs issued in May contained an NCV for Calvert Cliffs. Exelon disputed the NCV. Sheehan said, “The company argued that given the thickness of the wall and the radiation shielding it provides, plant personnel had no reason to expect the high radiation levels that were detected in that area.” The NRC disagreed and issued the finding on Oct. 9 in a letter to Exelon Generation Company Senior VP Bryan Hanson. dickmyers@countytimes.net

Beach Woman Competes in Oyster Cook-Off

Tammy Davis of Chesapeake Beach shows off her entry, Oyster Trio, during the National Oyster Cook-Off at the U.S. Oyster Festival.

By Dick Myers Editor Tammy Davis of Chesapeake Beach traveled all over the world as a member of our country’s foreign service. It gave her an opportunity to sample a wide variety of the world’s cuisines. In New York she enjoyed some of the country’s finest restaurants. But, her foray into Micronesia gave her a chance to sample some really interesting seafood. In Micronesia she said the folks tend to cook their seafood rather blandly. So, she learned to spice it up when she did her own cooking, a habit that has endured with some success back home in the U.S. and here in Southern Maryland.

When she was reassigned back to the DC area, she first lived in northern Virginia and then moved to Chesapeake Beach, where she has retired. That move to Chesapeake Beach was her first real exposure to the Chesapeake Bay’s bounty, but she admits she still hasn’t mastered crab picking. But she has, however mastered cooking oysters. The first year she was here she ventured to the U.S. Oyster Festival in St. Mary’s County, where she viewed the National Oyster Cook-Off. Five years ago, she decided to compete with multiple entries and made the final cook-off, which she has done every year since. This year, Davis entered one of her spicy recipes, called “Oyster Trio.” It earned her second place for hors d’oeuvres, one of three categories. She lost in that category to Baltimorean Marty Hyson, also a perennial contestant. Hyson was voted by attendees to be the People’s Choice, but lost out to the eventual Grand Prize winner, Debbie Reynolds of Charles County. Davis said entries for the contest are due in the middle of the summer when oysters aren’t readily available, so it’s difficult to test her ideas with wiling guinea pigs. Instead she prepares her dishes with seafood substitutes, such as crabs, which she has someone else pick for her. She said the substitutes usually work just as well.

And, now that she has entered a few times she doesn’t submit as many entries as she did that first time. She’s definitely

honed her oyster culinary skills.

Renowned Aircraft Artist Hank Caruso: ‘The Caricaturist of Naval Air’ By Dave Spigler Contributing Writer

Southern Maryland is rich and fortunate to have so many interesting personalities and talented residents who make their homes here. They come from every walk of life, their backgrounds are varied, and they bring unique abilities and special skills that are original and “one of a kind.” Like our native citizens, they found good reasons to settle in our part of the world and pursue their work, enjoying the quality of life that Southern Maryland affords us. St. Mary’s County resident Hank Caruso has achieved a nationally-known reputation for developing an artistic style that uniquely illustrates, older as well as current, aircraft flown by Navy, Marine, Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, and National Guard aviators. A congenial, wellliked individual, Hank has practiced his trade for more than 35 years. His artwork has endeared him to generations of airmen and made him a favorite speaker and a popular guest within all of the military services. Very often, his framed illustrations are highly-sought gifts that are presented at commissioning, retirement, and change of command ceremonies. These ubiquitous works of art can be found in offices of the most senior military leaders at the Pentagon to small aviation museums scattered across the country. His illustrations often appear on the covers of aviation magazines of every type. And, his many colorful calendars with a different aircraft each month are anxiously awaited each year and have won awards from the Calendar Marketing Association for Best Cartoon Art and Most Original Calendar. To this day, Hank remains thoroughly immersed in producing new works as newer versions of aircraft are developed and put on the military flight lines. Living in close proximity to the Navy’s primary Aircraft Test and Evaluation facility at Patuxent River has provided Hank with great opportunities to see the latest airborne weapons systems as they become a reality in our Nation’s arsenal. He has flown in these aircraft to gain first-hand knowledge of their capabilities. However, like the aviators he flies with, he has had to pass a battery of physical tests and physiology training before suiting up and riding in the back seat of the most sophisticated jet airplanes, propeller, and rotary wing aircraft. Among his greatest thrills and experiences were the times he was allowed to fly with the famous military flight demonstration team, the Navy’s Blue Angels. He has also flown with the instructors at “Topgun” and at Pax River’s U.S. Naval Test Pilot School, rare opportunities very few civilians have been permitted to strap in and learn what pulling 7 “Gs” is all about! “Been there, done that” made it possible for Hank “to understand the real

experience of flying and of the special pilot-aircraft relationship in a way that a ground-based artist never could.” For his years of dedication and promotion of naval aviation, Hank was honored with the distinction of being named “Honorary Naval Aviator #27” by the Chief of Naval Operations in 2006, one of only three artists to have this special recognition bestowed upon them. Importantly, Hank is an experienced aerospace engineer with a degree in mechanical engineering from Cornell University. He clearly understands the internal structural construction of an aircraft. He is acutely aware of the many dynamic forces acting on the exterior surfaces of wings and tails and the effect pressure, thrust, and gravity have on an aircraft’s ability to lift, turn and roll. A very respected professional in the engineering community, he has published more than 75 technical papers and previously served as national President of the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST). This knowledge provides him with a totally unique ability, when coupled with his broad imagination, to “personalize” an airplane as only he can! Hank’s popularity keeps him busy and he often has so little time to stay in contact with his thousands of fans. His works are in constant demand by military squadrons, government agencies, aviation companies, and airplane buffs throughout the world. He has been commissioned to prepare original illustrations for NASA, Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Burt Rutan, Senator and Astronaut John Glenn, Marine Corps Aviation Association, and the Tailhook Association to mention just a few. Caruso recently was invited this month to the Annual Navy Ball in Washington, DC to celebrate the Navy’s 243th Birthday. This event kept him tied up for days. He did find time to provide The County Times an opportunity to briefly chat about his interesting life experiences and his many artistic accomplishments. It is a small wonder Hank ever became involved in aviation to begin with! Born into a military family at Fort Benning, Georgia in 1945, he flew in his first airplane, a DC-3 at the age of 4 months, when his family was being transferred to their new home in Connecticut. Evidently, this new lad didn’t do well with the bumpy ride and threw up all over his dad’s uniform. He stated, “At a very early age, flying and motion sickness became inextricably intertwined in my life.” Yet throughout his childhood, he became intrigued by anything that flew including birds and manmade objects. He was thrilled to grow up during a period following WWII when the brain trust of our nation would transition our large industrial base from our successful war efforts to a real concerted focus for developing commercial aviation. The development of new propulsion

systems, coupled with the creation of stronger materials, allowed for aircraft to attain greater speeds with expanded flight characteristics and far reaching abilities unheard of during our war years. The public became intensely fascinated with the new aviation technology and the growing popularity of black and white television and movie houses featuring cinemas involving airplanes flown by the biggest Hollywood stars of the time helped fan the growing excitement of flying! The news media played a huge part in furthering this new interest with glowing stories of the rapid advancement of newer systems. Magazines featured continual colorful photographs and beautiful paintings by aviation artists. Plastic airplane model kits became all the rage! Air Shows drew record crowds of enthusiasts to greet the many aviators and see their wonderful flying machines! It was a good time to be a young lad growing up in America! Living in New England provided young Hank with ample opportunities to visit nearby air fields and military bases and get up close and personal with airplanes of every description. When other boys in the fourth grade where collecting baseball cards packaged with a piece of bubblegum, Hank was feverishly reaching out to fill his large collection of airplane postcards with his meager allowance (he refers to it as a “pittance”). At an early age, he learned to use a typewriter to type requests for aircraft pictures and data; he figured a typed request would “look more official” and he believed “important people always corresponded with typed postcards” and would reap greater rewards for his efforts or as he says, “his aviation lust!” Over the years, Hank amassed an astonishing collection of pictures, pamphlets, and paintings and still has all of this material to this day! As a teenager, Hank developed a special love for the U.S. Air Force and had his eyes on a military career, but soon realized he could never become a pilot due to his need to wear glasses to correct his visual acuity. He knew there are aircrew positions other than the “front seater” available to him such as a navigator, “but if he couldn’t be the pilot, what was the point?” And besides, navigation involved lots of math. Although he was good at math [remember he became an engineer], he couldn’t see a career based on manipulating numbers every day. Hank went on to state, “As for the Navy, it involved lots of very deep water in which one could drown,” certainly not the place he wanted to be. The question that is invariably asked of Hank in the many interviews and question and answer sessions he provides following his talks is: “How do you get your ideas?” He admits his answer is “not very satisfying” and he obviously wishes he could provide a more worthy answer. He says it’s the way he sees things in his head

Hank Caruso

and knows no other way to put it. Even as a kid, “I have always seen faces on airplanes. No, not just faces, personalities. Each airplane has its own distinct personality.” Hank coined the word “Aerocatures” to describe his most novel and distinctive images in aviation art. He has designed literally hundreds of illustrations that he “carefully drafts with special attention to detail to add a strong sense of realism to his dynamic portrayals of each aircraft’s unique personality.” It’s been said by admirers: “no other aviation artist blends the technical and emotional realities of aviation in such an engaging fashion.” He has created his own niche in the way airplanes and pilots are portrayed. A subset to his Aerocature genre is his special love for drawing naval aircraft of all types, purposes, and missions. His fondness for naval aviation has taken him across the country to many Navy and Marine Corps air stations and even aboard eight of the Navy’s large aircraft carriers. He has assembled a collection of illustrations of these aircraft in a book titled “Seabirds” and it remains a very popular publication. In the book’s Foreword, Vice Admiral Dick Dunleavey, one of the Navy’s senior aviators, paid Hank one of the greatest compliments he was to ever receive. He states: “Hank Caruso captures that spirit, that moment of truth, that in-your-face attitude that separates the warrior from all others. From his fertile mind and through his sharp pen, Hank gives the aircraft and carriers he draws the emotions Naval Aviators experience as they live carrier aviation…Hank captures it all!” Hank’s works are on display at the Paxtuxent River Naval Air Museum next to the Naval Air Station in Lexington Park. They may be purchased in the museum hift shop. They make wonderful gifts and are always in demand by aviation enthusiasts and others who wish to own a piece of history. And his drawings would be a perfect gift for a loved one whether they are a grown veteran or a young person full of fascination and wonderment of flying. Hint: Christmas is coming!

Two Lusby Men Arrested on Drug Charges

The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office Drug Enforcement Unit on Oct. 11 executed a search warrant on Cowpoke Circle in Lusby. Four pounds of marijuana as well as four pounds of marijuana oil/ Kyle Martin Jr. wax was recovered during the search warrant. The marijuana and marijuana oil/wax have an approximate street value of $35,000. A total of $9,850 in currency was also seized from the Alontre Strother residence. Alontre Dameron Strother, 20, of Lusby, was arrested and charged with Possession w/Intent to Distribute CDS. Members of the CCSO DEU on Oct. 17 executed search warrants related to an ongoing Controlled Dangerous Substance (CDS) investigation concerning Kyle Jerome Martin Jr., age 31, of Lusby, distributing CDS. Officers stopped the vehicle being operated by Martin in the area of Solomon’s Urgent Care. Martin attempted to flee the area on foot but was apprehended by Deputy Yates after a short foot pursuit. Martin was arrested and transported to the Calvert County Detention Center. While at the Calvert County Detention Center, Martin refused to cooperate with Correctional Officers who were attempting to conduct a thorough search of Martin for contraband. Martin later asked to use the bathroom, at which time he was granted access to a toilet within a holding cell. Martin sat on the toilet for a short time and then quickly jumped up and attempted to flush the toilet. Martin was quickly detained by correctional officers. Located in the toilet was black plastic bag containing 25, 30mg Oxycodone pills and eight individually packaged rocks of suspected crack-cocaine having a total weight of approximately 5.5 grams. The approximate street value of the CDS seized is $1,125. Also seized was two vehicles and $310 in currency.
