Counterterrorism Is
Serious Business
Fighting terrorism in the 21st century
will require sophisticated and multifaceted approaches. Compare the pandering
and simplistic solutions being offered
by the leading Republican candidates
for president to those of the current administration and the Democratic candidates. Even worse, pandering plays into
the hands of those promoting terrorism,
such as ISIS, by improving their ability
to recruit. (Mar 2016)

Calvert County Takes Steps


to Help Residents Lower
Flood Insurance Premiums
Residents of Calvert County who live in
the 100-year floodplains are reminded that
they may qualify for a 10 percent reduction
in their flood insurance premiums thanks
to mitigation efforts made by the Calvert
County Department of Community Planning & Building.
This news came after the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recognized Calvert County in August of 2015 for
exceeding floodplain management measures
encouraged by the National Flood Insurance
Program (NFIP.) The reduction in residents
floodplain insurance premiums applies to
new or renewed policies in effect on and after May 1, 2015.
FEMA oversees the NFIP, which administers a program called the Community Rating System (CRS). The CRS is a voluntary
incentive program that recognizes and encourages community floodplain management activities that exceed minimum NFIP
requirements. Calvert County is within an
elite group of 13 Maryland communities to
receive this recognition. With the continued
steps taken by the county to protect its citizens and increase its resiliency, it has entered
the CRS program as a Class 8 participant.
The Class 8 rating qualifies eligible NFIP
policy holders for an average of $138 in savings annually. In total, the upgrade in ratings

STEP 2

A hot water
tap is
turned on.

accounts for a savings of more than $37,000


annually for Calvert County citizens.
Under the CRS, local officials are asked to
meet three goals: (1) reduce flood losses; (2)
facilitate accurate insurance rating; and (3)
promote the awareness of flood insurance.
Communities can earn a CRS rating by
submitting an application explaining the
projects they have in place or in development.
For each class that a community moves
up to, it provides its residents with an additional five percent reduction in their flood
insurance premiums up to the 45 percent reduction that a Class 1 community receives.
As a Class 8 community, Calvert County
enables its residents to receive a 10 percent reduction on eligible flood insurance
premiums.
For information about flood insurance,
property owners should contact their insurance agent, visit floodsmart.gov or call the
NFIP's toll-free information line at 800427-4661. To learn if you live in a designated
floodplain, visit www.co.cal.md.us/floodmap. Learn more about the CRS by visiting

TANK TO TANKLESS!

Call us today for a free estimate on converting your hot


water system to a more efficient tankless system.
STEP 1

Cold water
enters the
heater & the
flow sensor
detects the
water flow.

STEP 3

The computer
automatically
ignites the
burner.

Water circulates
through the heat
exchanger.
The burner heats
the water to
the designated
temperature.

Mention our ad and receive


a $500.00 discount on
the unit and installation.

HOW DOES
A TANKLESS SPACE SAVING CALCULATION
WORK?
The obvious difference
between a tank and a
tankless is its size.
Not only will you gain
significant space, but
youll also get endless
hot water with a tankless.
Noritz tankless water
heaters last longer than
traditional tank water
heaters and are backed up
with a 12-year warranty.

STEP 5

The Noritz tankless water heater


provides an endless stream of
hot water. When the tap is
turned off, the unit shuts off.

With a tankless, you wont


be using hot water that is
stored in a tank that can
accumulate scale and rust
over time. Noritz units
allow you to set the
temperature you want.

A traditional tank-type water heater takes up to 13 ft2 of


space. If 1 ft2 is worth $200, thats $2,600 (13 ft2 x $200)
worth of space you could be saving at Noritz.

Calvert County Department


of Public Safety Urges
Residents to Be Prepared

With spring in full swing, the


region can experience extreme
weather that can include high
winds, heavy rains, lightning, hail
and the formation of tornadoes.
The Calvert County Department of
Public Safetys Division of Emergency Management encourages all
residents to be prepared.
This week is also Maryland Severe Storms Awareness Week and
Calvert County is teaming with the
Maryland Emergency Management
Agency (MEMA) and the National
Weather Service to promote citizen
awareness and preparedness. Residents can be weather prepared by
ensuring they understand weather
conditions, have a plan and practice
safety tips.
Often associated with severe
thunderstorms, tornadoes can produce wind speeds greater than 250
miles per hour, can be one mile
wide and can stay on the ground
for up to 50 miles. They are most
likely to occur between 3 p.m. and
9 p.m. but can occur at any time of
the day. Residents are urged to follow these tips on preparing for severe weather and taking action if a
tornado develops.
Before the Storm
Develop a plan for you and your
family for home, work, school,
when outdoors and especially when
boating.
Purchase a National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) weather radio with battery backup to receive weather
warnings.
Listen to radio and television for
information.
If taking a trip outdoors, listen
to the latest forecasts and plan accordingly if threatening weather is
possible.
Be familiar with the various types
of watches and warnings issued for
severe weather.
-Severe thunderstorm watch: Severe thunderstorms are possible in
your area.
-Severe

and lets discuss the possibilities.

-Tornado watch: Conditions are favorable for a tornado to form.


-Tornado warning: A tornado has
been sighted or indicated by weather radar.
If a Tornado Warning is Issued
Take shelter immediately. If an
underground shelter is not available, move to an interior room or
hallway on the lowest floor and get
under a sturdy piece of furniture.
Stay away from windows.
Abandon mobile homes; they offer
little protection, even if tied down.

POOL MAINTENANCE:

Get out of automobiles. Do not


try to outrun a tornado in your car;
instead, leave it immediately and
lay in a ditch or depression or seek
sturdy shelter.
If you are caught outside with no
shelter, lie flat in a nearby ditch
or depression and cover your head
with your hands. Do not get under
an overpass or bridge.

After the tornado passes, stay


away from storm-damaged areas.
Listen to the radio for information
and instructions.

to sign up for Calvert ALERT, a notification system that can send messages by text, email, fax, land line
and pager. Visit the county website

Commissioners Corner

Proposed Budget
I tend to write much about
budgets, but with all honesty
and humility, Im no financial genius; and never claim
to be one. The reason I dwell
so much upon the budget is its
significance in my role as a Calvert County Commissioner. My
earlier years as a commissioner
gave me concern as so little detail about the budget was actually addressed by the Board of
County Commissioners; each
were left up to exploring details
individually. This also led to less
transparency for our citizens.
For this past year, things were
different. Our staff identified
their nearly 500 Services and
Functions as well as the associated costs. Those details were
presented to our board on camera so that our citizens could
be more informed about what
they were getting for their tax
dollars. Many work sessions
were conducted by each department. Those department directors then made a recommended
set of relative priorities for the
county administrator to review.
She then made an overall recommended listing to the commissioners. Each commissioner
provided their priority views for
consolidation into one overall
set of relative priorities.
The above process was separate, though related to the ongoing budget build for Fiscal
Year-17 (which begins implementation this July 1.) Recently,
the staff submitted to the commissioners their recommended
overall budget for this coming
year. We are now in the phase
of reconciling that recommendation with our consolidated
prioritization for producing the
Commissioners Budget for
presentation to the public in
May.
The General Fund recommended budget for FY-17 totals
$246,951,108 and reflects an increase of 3.4%, or $8.1 million,
compared to the FY-16 General
Fund budget of $238.8 million.

Staff recommends increasing by $2.7 million the Calvert


Countys Highway Maintenance Division to fund the road
paving program. Our roads have
been stressed for years since the
state reduced funding from $6
million to $500 thousand per
year. Those gasoline taxes our
citizens pay that were intended
to help with local roads were
diverted by the state for other
spending. The current Governor is trying to restore funding to where it was originally
intended.
Over the years, weve held
spending to a minimum and
kept the staff from receiving
pay raises due to the poor state
of the U.S. economy. While
that economy has not yet really
improved, there is merit to consider a step increase (i.e., salary
increase) for County employees,
with a $1.3 million estimated
impact.
We all know that things do
get more expensive even when
our incomes do not increase.
For the county, pension and insurance expenses are expected
to increase by almost $2 million.
Some of this increase is due to
a low budget estimate in FY-16.
As part of managing through
the horrible economy, many
resources were held for use
beyond the normal anticipated
replacement cycle. However,
vehicles and other equipment
eventually need replacing. Capital Outlay increased over the
FY-16 budget by approximately
$1.6 million to address necessary replacement of vehicles
and depreciable equipment (e.g.,
highway trucks).
Over the upcoming weeks,
we will see how we navigate the
budget build and look forward
to reporting the results. Citizen
input remains important.

Thank You To Our

Thank you Calvert County Board of Commissioners; Mike Hart, Pat Nutter, Steve Weems,
Thomas Hejl and Evan Slaughenhoupt, Jr. for

Maryland House of Delegates and Speaker Michael E. Busch, Chief Clerk Sylvia C. Siegert,

and our local delegates; Mark Fisher, Tony

about Marie and her unrelenting efforts to make
Calvert its best. Marie has truly given her best
to her community. And, at 92, Marie says she is
retiring from her arduous schedule, but as many
said at the reception, we will continue to hear
her voice to advocate for the betterment of our
county.
In appreciation,

Gladys Melvilee Jones


Gladys Melvilee Jones,
affectionately known to
all as Melvilee, was born
on October 21, 1939 to the
late Clarence Lincoln Hall
and Mildred Rawlings Hall
in Paris, MD. She departed
this life on Sunday, March
6, 2016, at her residence, surrounded by
her loving husband and children. Melvilee attended the public schools of Calvert County, MD. Upon completion of
school, on July 6, 1957, she married the
love of her life, Joseph Edward Jones, Sr.
From this union, eleven children were
born. Melvilee cared for and cherished the
ground her children and grandchildren

walked on. She spoke with each of them


daily. There was absolutely nothing she
would not do for any of them. In fact, a
number of her childrens friends became
her children. They respected and loved
her as their mother away from home. Melvilee was also a woman that would help
anyone she could. As a housewife for the
majority of her adult life, she was able
to help some of her friends with running
errands, attending their doctors appointments and visiting stores. She would always lend a helping hand. And just to let
you in on a secret, Melvilee loved money.
Her children could always get a piece of
money if they needed it. But, her husband didnt have much luck, at all.Melvilee was a good cook and always cooked
from scratch for her family. You could
always count on her making her award
winning potato salad and salmon cakes.
Her girls could always call her up to get
a recipe and suggestions how to prepare
certain dishes. She also enjoyed holiday
celebrations and weekend family gatherings. Melvilee really enjoyed quality time
with her family. Melvilee was a longtime member of St. Edmonds United
Methodist Church. There, she served as
an at-large member of the Church Council.
She enjoyed good singing, preaching and
Wednesday night bible studies, when her
health permitted. You could also count on
seeing Sis. Melvilee stepping through
the doors, generally 30 minutes before
start of service, sporting a fancy hat and
a smile. She had such a quiet, sweet spirit,
and truly enjoyed praising God. She may
have been a woman of few words, but she
had enormous faith. Sis. Melvilee reaffirmed her faith and was baptized at the
North Beach pier on July 17, 2011, alongside her husband. Although faced with a
number of health ailments, Melvilee was
a woman that never complained. Until the
day she took her last breath, she reminded
us all that she knew the Lord was in control. Regardless of what she was going
through, if you inquired as to how she felt,
her response was always, Pretty good,
thanks to the Lord. Her faith never wavered. There was no battle she would not
fight. There was no giving up, nor giving
in. With her husband and family beside
her, Melvilees battle was won! Melvilee leaves to cherish her fond memories: Husband: Joseph Jones, Sr.; children:

Get Ready to Splash for Scholarships May 7


CSM Foundation to Host Poolside Celebration

The College of Southern Maryland Foundation is hosting a poolside celebration May 7 at


Leonardtown Campus Wellness and Aquatics
Center to raise funds for student scholarships.
The Second Annual Splash for Scholarships event will include music and dancing,
seashore-inspired cuisine, poolside games and
a silent auction.
All proceeds will benefit CSM student
scholarships through the CSM Foundation.
Sponsorships levels range from $7,500 to
$500, and based on the level include named
scholarship opportunities, VIP parking and

event tickets. Individual tickets are $50 per


person.
We are so excited to host this event for a
second year. The communitys response was
inspiring allowing us to raise over $70,000 for
scholarships last year, said Foundation Director Nancy Hempstead. It truly was a Splash
for Scholarships event and we look forward to
working with our community partners again
this year to support CSM students through
scholarships for both credit and career training
programs.
The CSM Foundation, established in 1970,

is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that

College of Southern Maryland Technical Studies professors Joe Burgin, James


Graves, Wendy Hume Hayes and John
Wilson are helping to guide their students
as they explore careers in cybersecurity through participation in the National
Security Agencys NSA Day of Cyber
throughout the month of March.
With the growing sophistication of hackers, the need for trained cybersecurity professionals is critical to reduce vulnerabilities to Americas networks for commerce,
communication and security, according to
the National CyberWatch Center, a consortium of higher education institutions,
businesses and government agencies.
Burgin began teaching computer science at CSM in 1999, the same year that
software security vendors released the
first anti-hacking products for personal
computers.
Cybersecurity is among the topics and
content Burgin teaches in courses including: Information Age: Emerging Technologies; Program Design and Development; Introduction to Linux; Windows
Programming; Windows Programming
for the Web; Web Programming; Algorithms and Data Structures; and Capstone
Experience.
Burgin believes that the greatest challenge students in the near future will face
are security and privacy issues.
As citizens and those studying in technical fields, we need to transition from the
idea that security is a feature added onto
our systems as an afterthought to the requirement that security is a continuous
process that is designed, baked into, our
systems from the start. Ensuring privacy
and liberty depends on awareness of the
technical as well as ethical issues involved
in implementing secure systems, said
Burgin.
Burgin encouraged his students to participate in the NSA Day of Cyber, saying
[Through this experience] they have been
exposed to cutting edge ideas and issues
at the heart of our digital economy and
culture.
[Through the NSA Day of Cyber] I
did get a better idea of the scope of the IT
fields NSA is interested in hiring, said
Ryan Kramer of Waldorf, one of Burgins
students who is primarily interested in
network/networking security and vulnerability assessment.
Graves began at CSM as an adjunct

professor and has been teaching full time


since 2013. He teaches Ethical Hacking,
Digital Forensics and Networking I and II.
Cyber threats continuously evolve and
shape the direction we must embark upon
to ensure the three pillars of Information
Security, confidentiality, integrity and
availability (C.I.A.), remain intact within
our networks of tomorrow, said Graves.
The NSA Day of Cyber provides great
insight into our society and how technology is intertwined in our everyday lives.
The individual activities allow students
to see the ways cybersecurity plays a
primary role in protecting technology
infrastructure.
Hayes, the colleges cybersecurity program coordinator, came to CSM in 2002
and has taught Computer Security which
prepares students for the CompTIA Security+ exam, Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing, Network and Infrastructure
Defense and Information Systems Security Capstone.
I made the NSA Day of Cyber activities available to my students because there
is a big misconception about what a cybersecurity professional does, said Hayes.
The interactive application focused on
seven cyber professionals within NSA regarding what skills they needed to do their
jobs and what an average day entailed.
Along with these professional biographies,
the NSA site provided critical thinking
games with real-world scenarios. I found
the critical thinking challenges to be a fun
way to reinforce the need for problemsolving skills.
NSA Day of Cyber is a great experience for my students because it provides
them with an insight into different cybersecurity professions and what it takes to
get there, Hayes said, who added that the
NSA has now opened its educational co-op
to community college students.
Wilson came to CSM in 2000 and teaches Cyber Ethics.
NSA is part of the national intelligence community and I wanted to expose students to the varied work they do,
said Wilson. Some students might not
think of working in the intelligence field
but there are many jobs in this area. The
work is challenging and those who work
in this field can see the results of their
work, so there is great job satisfaction.
The activities in the Day of Cyber allow
students to learn how they might use skills

they are learning as they work on their degree.


Students who participated learned about
seven career fields, from cyber threat center director to network operator to vulnerability analyst. Each had a corresponding
video explaining the typical day of the role
and what they like about their job.
Students were able to try their hand at
some cyber challenges decoding messages, said Wilson.
I now have a much better understanding of the types of jobs available in cybersecurity. More importantly, I have a better
idea of some of the actual duties that are

Nearly 700 Cyclists Will Takeover Calvert County


Roads With The Mission Of Ending Hunger
End Hunger In Calvert County is hosting
its 8th Annual End Hunger Bike Ride on
Saturday, April 30.
That Saturday morning, several hundreds
of cyclists from throughout the metropolitan area and as far away as Maine will be
mounting up and hitting the roads of Calvert
County to support one mission: end hunger
in Calvert County.
There are four routes designed for cyclists
to choose from: 63 miles for seasoned riders, 35 miles and 48 miles for intermediate
riders, and 16 miles for beginners. For those
who are new to cycling, a New Rider 16
miler route isavailablethat includes a brief
orientation for safety and a ride leader who
guides the group throughout the ride.
All cyclists will start and end at Chesapeake Church in Huntingtown, Md. A Post-

Ride Cookout will take place in Summit


Park from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and includes free
food provided by Dunkirk Town Center BP,
music and community. Ritas Ice in Dunkirk
will also be back with free Italian Ice.
New this year is free post ride stretching
sessions provided by GROW Yoga in North
Beach! For more information and to register, go to endhungercalvert.org/bike.
Its more than abikeride. Its an opportunity for our community to come together
embrace the values of #GiveWhereYouLive, says Jacqueline Miller President of
End Hunger In Calvert County. Now in
our eighth year, the cyclists and our partners
participate with an understanding that they
are directly making a difference in the lives
of Calvert County residents. Its an event
they lookforwardto being part of and come

back year after year.


The four routes were intentionally chosen to display the natural beauty of Calvert
County. Riders will travel along the bayfront, marina, farmland and winerieswhile
they enjoy the company of friends who
share their same passion for biking.
Last years event attracted over 684 cyclists and raised nearly $30,000 for its 44
Partner Feeding Organizations. Theseorganizationsinclude food pantries, HeartFELT
Backpack Program, and mobile distributions sites.
Yet, more than raising money, these cyclists also hope to raise awareness. The
number of individuals that End Hunger
Partner Feeding Organizations serve has
grown from 10,000 to 15,000 individuals a
year. All proceeds from the event directly

support the mission of End Hunger In Calvert County.


For a list of End Hunger In Calvert County partners and programs visit endhungercalvert.org.
End Hunger In Calvert County was recognized by the Better Business Bureau as an
Accredited Charity for meeting all 20 Standards of Charitable Accountability. As part
of the accreditation process, the Better Business Bureau found that $0.93 of every dollar donated to the organization goes straight
into programming. That means that when
you support events like the Dragon Boat
Festival and give to End Hunger In Calvert
County, you can do so with confidence.

The Calvert Green Living event (April


30 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Annmarie Sculpture Garden and Arts Center - 13480
Dowell Road, Dowell, Md.) will feature
multiple 30-minute workshops as well
as ongoing demonstrations focused on
sustainable living and environmental
stewardship.

The event, which replaces the Green


Expo for 2016, is free and open to the

power, energy efficiency, recycling, native plants, wildedibles, butterfly gardening, bio and alternative fuel discussion,
invasive insects and plants, rainbarrel

55-gallon rain barrel is priced at $30 instead of the regular $90 for workshop attendees. The easiest way to get your rain
barrel is to pre-register online at go.umd.

edu/rainbarrel. (Please note there is


a transaction fee if ordered online).
Door prize drawings will be held
throughout the event. Light fare and
wine/beer will be served.
