Event Planning Tip of the Week – Halloween Party Ideas Hosting a Halloween party? Make a spooky sparkling punch complete with a Áoating dead man’s hand (Àll a latex glove with water and freeze) and plastic eyeballs. Serve brain and eyeball salad (cooked spaghetti and grapes) straight out of a pumpkin. Then use dried ice to create a realistic witches brew. Finally, set up the strobe lights and fog machine for dramatic effect….. and don’t forget the haunted house music to keep your guests shaking in their boots! For more advice, go to or Ànd us on facebook.

This Thanksgiving, Help FEED-A-FAMILY By Ron Stafford

OfÀce Space for Lease Call KRM Development 410-604-2622 Various sizes available



This Thanksgiving season, many families in our area will enjoy a wonderful meal surrounded by friends and family. In these difĂ€cult times, others are not so fortunate. Thankfully, the FEED-A-FAMILY program, directed by Bobbie Bell, helps to Ă€ll this need. With a background in Ă€tness, volunteer work, and as a stay-athome mom, Bobbie has been involved with the program since 2004. FEED-A-FAMILY started 25 years ago as a Christmas outreach from Kent Island United Methodist Church. It later became a Thanksgiving outreach, where church members collected food and money to buy food to make baskets for the homebound. The baskets were delivered before Thanksgiving, and hot meals were provided on Thanksgiving Day. In 2004, the name FEED-A-FAMILY was adopted, patterned after the AdoptA-Bear Christmas program. Last year, FEED-A-FAMILY delivered food baskets to 330 families in the area and gave turkeys and food to other outreach organizations. Thirty-Ă€ve hot meals were delivered to 11 families, and almost $2000 in gift cards were distributed among 60 families for the Christmas outreach from Union Wesley United Methodist Church. Today, 18 churches in Stevensville, Chester, Grasonville and Queenstown have teamed up with area businesses, grocery stores, community groups, service clubs, and other organizations to help with this year’s program. The Safeway in Chester has helped in years past, and more stores have been added. “Acme and Food Lion have also agreed to be a part of the program this year,â€? Bobbie noted. How is this whole enterprise accomplished? A Turkey Tree/Bulletin Board is placed in a prominent place at the various locations and covered with FEED-AFAMILY Turkey Tags. People who walk by can pick a tag or two, and information is presented on what is needed to provide a family with food. Those selecting a tag are responsible for delivering their box to the Kent Narrows Outlet location the week before Thanksgiving. The Saturday before Thanksgiving, a team delivers the food to the designated families. There are other ways that you can help with this great effort. Bobbie and her team can always use extra turkeys and food for those families who call in at the last moment. “We also are always looking for more volunteers who are interested in helping to receive and organize the food, or who can help in delivering the boxes,â€? says Bobbie. Gift cards also are a welcome option to help Ă€ll the needs of families. There are a few things that FEED-A-FAMILY is not. “Some people think that this is funded by Queen Anne’s County, “ Bobbie added. On the contrary, this is truly a collaboration by local churches and members of the community who honestly care about others. “We’re not a big corporation. And it is really not a food bank.â€? Bobbie adds, “It’s one time a year‌an annual event. We are helping those who are less fortunate at a time when we come together to celebrate families and friends.â€? Anything left over is given to local food banks in the area, such as the ones at St. Christopher’s or Living Waters. Bobbie hopes FEED-A-FAMILY continues to grow every year, and would like to see other organizations, such as garden clubs and American Legions, taking tags to help others in our area. “We grow by 30 to 50 names a year, and we would like more churches who want to collaborate in order to meet as many needs as possible.â€? For more information on how you can be a part of FEED-A-FAMILY, contact Bobbie at 410-8275345 or through her email address bellbloomcoach@yahoo. com

Shine Like Stars Preschool, located in Stevensville enjoys a Àeld trip to Councell Farms

Danny Brown, manager of Fisherman’s Crab Deck and Seafood Market in C Grasonville, looks forward to the annual Halloween party that is held at the business. Last year, over 600 people were in attendance. This year’s party, w which was held last Saturday, October w 22nd, featured a costume contest and tthe entertainment of one of Washington DC’s most popular bands, “Diamond Alley.” Danny truly enjoys this time of year w when he can have some well-deserved ffun with his customers.

KEEPING HALLOWEEN SAFE Talbot Partnership for Alcohol & Other Drug Abuse Prevention wants to remind parents that Halloween is an ideal time to talk with your child about healthy decisions and choices. Halloween night is one of the deadliest nights of the year because of those driving under the inÁuence. According to the National Highway TrafÀc Safety Administration, on Halloween night in 2009, 48 percent of all highway fatalities across the nation involved a driver or a motorcycle rider with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher. Talbot Partnership would like to share these tips from MADD to help ensure everyone’s safety this Halloween: · Designate a sober driver before celebrations begin · Never serve those under the age of 21 alcohol · Plan safe parties, including providing non-alcoholic drink options to guests and not serving alcohol the last hour of the party · Be prepared to get everyone home safe in case your plans or individual circumstances change Going trick-or-treating: Be extra alert when crossing the street Wear bright, reÁective clothing or add reÁective tape to costume and treat bucket Bring a Áashlight (with extra batteries) so you can see and be seen at night Parents, remember you cannot give alcohol to your teen’s friends under the age of 21, under any circumstance, even in your own home, even with their parent’s permission. You cannot knowingly allow a person under 21, other than you own child, to remain in your home or on your property while consuming or possessing alcohol. Please help protect your child’s bright future by providing a safe, alcoholfree Halloween for your son or daughter. Parents have more inÁuence than they think on their teens’ use of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs. For more tips on parenting substance-free youth, visit www.talbotpartnership. org. Parents may also sign up on the website for Talbot Partnership’s new E-Newsletter, which also offers tips for parents.

VIPERS CHEER AND DANCE…DEVELOPING THE WHOLE ATHLETE IN EVERY WAY By Ron Stafford How does a husband who works in construction and demolition and a wife who does research work for Johns Hopkins transition to leading dance and cheerleading teams? In the case of Vipers Cheer and Dance, it is an unbeatable combination. Ron Levee and Stacey Cayetano together own Vipers, a private organization serving the top cheer and dance athletes in Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania. In 2009, Ron and Stacey bought the Maryland Vipers, and in 2010 they bought Cheer Dynasty, a local dance company. They have Àve locations, with the most newest one recently opened on Kent Island. Ron, who has grown children, started working in competitive cheerleading 15 years ago because of one of his daughters. He oversees the gymnastics part of the business and the hiring of the trainers and coaches. Stacey handles the administrative duties of Vipers. In addition to cheerleading and dance, Vipers offers tumbling and stunt classes and private lessons. Stacey said “We offer programs for both

boys and girls ages 3 to 18. We started out in 2009 with 38 athletes, and today that count is at 500 athletes.” She also pointed out that scholarships are offered through various booster clubs. The Kent Island location is the most recent opening for Vipers. According to Stacey, “Kent Island has provided coaches in previous programs, and we feel there is a need for our level of expertise here.” She added, “We stand out due to our years of experience in the industry and our requirement of certiÀed coaches to train the athletes.” Vipers staff is 80 strong across all locations. What would Stacey like to see for the future of Vipers? “I would like to see us soon become the largest mid-Atlantic representative in the All-Star cheerleading industry.” When asked about the industry itself, Stacey gave a “tutorial” on the different levels, “Initially, there are recreational leagues, then school teams, followed by the All-Star cheerleading industry, which is strictly competitive (such as what you see on ESPN), then onto the college and professional levels.” Some past students have gone on to do great work at various state universities in Maryland, Hawaii, and the University of Louisville. Ron and Stacey have Àve former coaches who currently cheer or coach for the Ravens. Their alumni stay in touch with the Vipers organization. Ron and Stacey are very excited about their new location on Kent Island. In four months, Vipers of Kent Island has outgrown their current location at 216 Log Canoe Circle in Stevensville; within six months, they will be moving to their new location across the street at 235 Log Canoe Circle. Stacey says, “We have felt a warm welcome from everyone here on Kent Island. The reception has been amazing.” Other planned locations opening within the next year include Annapolis, Rockville, Ellicott City and Millersville. Ultimately, Ron and Stacey are excited that they can offer a new level of cheerleading and dance to those on Kent Island and in the surrounding area. For more information, call Ron and Stacey at 410-604-2277 or visit their website at Feel free to stop in for a visit at 216 Log Canoe Circle in Stevensville.

KENT ISLAND JEWELRY Newly Remodeled to Better Serve You By Ron Stafford The transformation is almost complete at Kent Island Jewelry in Chester. Patty Knell and Sharon Fletcher, together with their newest jeweler, Regen Linn, are excited about serving their customers in their newly expanded and remodeled facility. The store has a more modern and luxurious feel with open space, fresh paint, new carpet and fixtures and gorgeous display cases stocked with new pieces. Patty says, “The remodel is 98% complete. We’re putting the finishing touches on it and can’t wait to begin helping our customers make their selections in our new space and from our new collections.� Opened in 2000, Kent Island Jewelry is a full-service jewelry store with pieces for every budget and taste. Additional services include ring sizing, watch repairs, gold buying and so much more. A new service, Counter Sketch, allows the jewelers to custom design jewelry on a laptop where they can take an existing ring or stones and place them in a new setting so the customer can preview and change until happy with the results. To complete the full service motto, they are adding Sunday hours beginning in November. Patty and Sharon also offer Gold Buying Parties after hours. These parties are a great way for friends to get together, socialize and leave with CASH IN HAND... instead of out of pocket. Gold parties also are a fun and easy way to do fundraising by selling old, used, unwanted or broken gold jewelry for cash without all the usual preparation and setup time. To cap off the excitement at the store, Kent Island Jewelry is hosting a Grand Unveiling on Friday and Saturday, November 11 and 12. Guests can stop by and enjoy refreshments, free jewelry cleaning and earn an additional 10-percent bonus on any gold, platinum or silver they bring to the store to sell. Patty and Sharon also are very excited to have a New York gem supplier at the Grand Unveiling, displaying and selling gems of all sizes and colors. So plan on visiting the newly remodeled store and entering your name in a drawing for a piece of jewelry valued at over $1,000. For more information on Kent Island Jewelry or any of the services listed, visit them in person at 1801 Main Street in Chester or give them a call at 410-643-7766. Feel free to visit their website at

We host Gold Buying Parties! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great chance to clean out your dresser, make some cash and get friends together for a night of fun. Unlike other parties, where guests have to buy items, your friends actually leave with money in hand!

ule a GOLD BUYING PARTY. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll schedule a private evening at our newly remodeled location that works for you. 2. Invite 7 or more of your friends, coworkers, and family members. 3. The night of the event, bring appetizers and drinks, and your gold, silver or platinum. We buy 10k, 14k, 18k, 22k, or 24k gold jewelry; sterling silver, platinum and scrap gold; damaged/ scrap bracelets, necklaces, earrings, watches, rings

Hosting a Party A typical party lasts about 2 hours. There are no sales pitches or long demonstrations to sit through. You and your guests simply relax and enjoy each other while we do all the work. There is never any pressure to sell. If you and your guests like the payout, which weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sure you will, we cut checks on the spot. As the host, you receive an additional 10% for the sales made from the night of your party. If anyone signs up the night of your party to host a future event, you receive 3% of the sales made at their party!

News In Brief Brought to You By


ELECTION PROFILES: CHESTERTOWN’S SECOND WARD Town of Chestertown Second Ward councilman Gibson Anthony is running for reelection on November 1. Anthony has played a leading role in the town’s Rails to Trails program, the purchase of the town Marina and, more recently, has expressed concerns on the transfer of the town Armory from the State of Maryland to Washington College. He currently works as the computer/media specialist of the Radcliffe Creek School. Medical insurance executive Linda Kuiper will be running against incumbent Gibson Anthony and activist Armond Fletcher. An active member in the Republican Party in Kent County for many years, Kuiper believes the town does not have the resources for big projects like the Marina. She also believes that the town should approve the sale. 25TH ANNUAL COASTAL CLEANUP Volunteers collected about 31,000 pounds of trash from beaches and rivers in the mid-Atlantic region, including a kitchen counter top and Áag pole. The trash was collected during the 25th annual Coastal Cleanup event, co-sponsored by Delmarva Power and environmental, governmental and business organizations. More than 2,700 volunteers participated in the cleanup at 50 sites in Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey. Organizers believe extra debris washed ashore this year during Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. Last year, about 19,000 pounds of trash was collected. Among the other items hauled in this year were a BMX bicycle, woman’s wig, car bumper and rain gutter. NEW GUARDRAILS NEAR OCEAN CITY The State Highway Administration says new guardrails will be installed on MD 90 between US113 and MD 528 near Ocean City. The work began October 23 and will be completed in two phases over two months. The Àrst phase involves removing and replacing guardrails along MD 90 between Worcester Highway and Racetrack Road. During work hours, eastbound trafÀc on MD 90 will detour to US 113 and will follow US 50 to Ocean City. Westbound trafÀc on MD 90 will be open at all times. The second phase of work is on MD 90 between Racetrack Road and Coastal Highway. Eastbound trafÀc on MD 90 will be redirected to MD 589, then to US 50 and into Ocean City. Work will be done Sundays through Thursdays from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.

BURGLARY IN EASTON Authorities are investigating the burglary of an Easton business, when thousands in dollars worth of electronic items were taken. Easton police said that sometime between October 13 and 14 an unknown suspect broke into Corbin and Hook on North West Street and stole a WAVTEXT digital recording system and a HP laptop computer. The stolen items are valued at approximately $10,000. Corbin and Hook is a court reporting Àrm. Anyone with information pertaining to this incident is asked to contact the Easton Police Department at 410-822-1111. MORE ZEBRA MUSSELS FOUND The Maryland Department of Natural Resources announced that it recently conÀrmed the presence of zebra mussels in the lower Sassafras River, a tidal tributary to the Chesapeake Bay on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. A single adult zebra mussel attached to a dock in the river near Turner Creek was spotted by a concerned citizen who reported the Ànd. This is a Àrst-time discovery of zebra mussels in the Sassafras. DNR ofÀcials believe that the unusually low levels of salt in upper Chesapeake Bay waters this summer may have played a role in allowing zebra mussels to expand their distribution to the Sassafras River. The Sassafras is near the Susquehanna River, which is where the invasive species was Àrst discovered in Maryland in 2008. The Susquehanna is the likely source of the mussel and the only other place in Maryland where zebra mussels have been found, according to DNR ofÀcials. LISTERIA AND CANTALOUPES The CDC is reporting that 25 deaths in 12 states are now linked to listeria in cantaloupes. The CDC conÀrmed a sixth death in Colorado and a second in New York, with a total of 123 people sickened. Maryland had previously reported one death. It is the deadliest known outbreak of foodborne illness in the U.S. in more than 25 years. ROCKFISH ON THE RISE The number of juvenile rockÀsh in Chesapeake Bay is the fourth highest in the 58-year history of the annual census. Maryland Àsheries ofÀcials said the population index is nearly three times higher than the long-term average. RockÀsh, also known as striped bass, are the ofÀcial state Àsh. BROOKS GETS BRONZED A statue of Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson was unveiled last weekend outside Baltimore’s Camden Yards. The 9-foot tall bronze statue depicts Robinson at third base preparing to throw out a runner at Àrst base. A 4-1/2-foot tall pedestal will have panels describing Robinson’s career. Robinson played his entire 23-season career for the Orioles, retiring in 1977. He is considered one of the greatest defensive third basemen in baseball history. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1983. TWO MD MEN PLEAD GUILTY IN ID THEFT RING Prosecutors say two Maryland men have pleaded guilty to being involved in an identity theft ring involving more than 250 victims in the Washington area. Twenty-six-year-old Anthony Thomas and 27-year-old Raoul Lycorish pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit access device fraud and aggravated identity theft. They are both scheduled to be sentenced in January. Prosecutors say the two men recruited, trained and paid restaurant servers to swipe customer credit cards through a skimmer that would record the credit card numbers. They would then use the stolen numbers to re-encode cards to make purchases. Prosecutors say the pair made thousands of fraudulent transactions between January 2010 and June of this year throughout Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. MID-SHORE ALLEGED GANG MEMBERS INDICTED Three Queen Anne’s County men face federal charges as alleged members of a violent gang that committed murders and operated across the Mid-Shore, according to a federal indictment unsealed last week. A federal grand jury indicted 35 alleged members of the South Side Brims Bloods (SSB), a gang that originated from the Bloods out of Compton, CA and started here in 2005. The 26-count indictment details alleged criminal activity including murder, gang retaliation, drug trafÀcking, home invasion, assault and robbery. TOWN FINDS EXTRA FUNDS; ARMORY BREAKTHROUGH Chestertown Town Manager Bill Ingersoll told the Town Council that there was actually $100,000 additional in SAFETEA-LU funds for Rails-to-Trails than he originally thought. The news came moments before Washington College President Mitchell Reiss appeared for a closed session with a freshly minted Memorandum of Understanding to buy the Sgt. John H. Newnam Armory. The double surprise came less than a week after three councilmen and Reiss appeared to be at an impasse. Last week ended with Councilmen Gibson Anthony, James Gatto, and Marty Stetson vowing to get greater value for selling the Town’s option on the Armory in response to an ultimatum from Reiss to agree to the original MOU by mid-November.
