At their regularly scheduled meet- ing Tuesday, the Calvert County Board of County Commissioners heard the Calvert County Health De- partment’s (CCHD) semi-annual up- date. According to the report from CCHD, the Zika Virus has infected around 500 U.S. residents, which in- cludes 16 Marylanders, none of which are from Calvert County.

The report said the Zika Virus is transmitted by mosquitoes and sexual contact and is proven to cause a large amount of damage to both fetal and adult brains. Calvert County Government is working with Maryland Dept. of Ag- riculture to monitor mosquito popula- tion, the report said. They are making preparations for mosquito eradication

if needed and the CCHD is working

with the county government to pro- vide money for mosquito traps, print public information material, and pro- vide educational outreach across the county.

According to a memo from the De- partment of General Services that was discussed later that same day, the Cen- ter for Disease Control and Prevention has released a guidance document on surveillance and control of mosquito species related to the Zika Virus. The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is currently drafting

a Maryland Surveillance and Control

plan. With these new documents in place, the worry is that the new responsibilities on the county will stress the current staff caus-

ing the need for additional members. The additional members will be seasonal and will assist in the surveillance and con- trol of mosquitoes that are related to the

Animal Matters Hearing Board Approved for Public Hearing

By Crista Dockray Staff Writer

The Animal Control Unit is requesting an Animal Matters Hearing Board to be estab- lished within the County. According to Craig Dichter, Chief Ani- mal Control Officer, back in March 2008, the previous Board of County Commis- sioners adopted some changes to the Chap- ter 7 animal ordinance, which at that time, had language put into it that allowed for an Animal Matters Hearing Board. It later had to be removed because a legislative re- quest was required, which was eventually approved. Now, they Animal Control Unit is try- ing once again to make the Hearing Board come to life. According to Dichter, a lot of research has gone into their request for a board, including going up to Charles Coun- ty to see how their Animal Matters Hearing Board functions. According to Dichter, all cases for non- compliance of citations are currently given to District Court for a hearing and the dangerous animal appeals are heard by a Lieutenant in the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office.

If the Animal Matters Hearing Board is approved, it would shift the responsibilities and even take on more, like settling dis- putes and complaints. “It clears up the court system, it clears us up from having be in the courts, and if there is any fines, it is coming back to the county now instead of to the courts,” said Dichter about the benefits. The board will consist of five members, three citizens with only one allowed to have an affiliation with an animal rescue group, one deputy sheriff and one veterinarian or veterinarian technician. They will meet at least once every three months to hear and decide all the administrative appeals. They will also make recommendations for changes to the local ordinance. “There are several items that we would like to see changed,” said Dichter. It is requested that all five members be citizens of Calvert County and they will be hired as any other board would. The report said the fiscal impact will be minimal, but it has yet to be determined. Commissioners approved the matter to go to public hearing five to zero.

SMECO - The Cooperative Difference

Nearly 80 years ago, when rural areas needed electricity, cooperatives were cre- ated. Visionary men and women helped to form the Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO). SMECO now pro- vides electric service to 160,000 custom- ers in Charles County, St. Mary’s County, southern Prince George’s County, and all but the northeast portion of Calvert County. Cooperatives are distinctly different from investor-owned utilities because co- ops are owned by their customers. Cus- tomer-members elect the men and women who serve on the Board of Directors. Cus- tomer-members share the responsibility of ownership by financing the cooperative’s operations, but they also share its rewards. Each year, SMECO’s margins—rev- enue less expenses—are allocated to cus- tomers’ capital credit accounts. SMECO uses margins as working capital for new construction and system improvements. Then, whenever the Board of Directors determines that the financial condition of the co-op warrants, members receive a refund. As a cooperative, SMECO will always put its members first and be responsive, reliable, and resourceful—the power you can count on. Follow SMECO on Facebook at www. facebook.com/SMECO.coop and on Twit- ter at www.twitter.com/somdelectric. The SMECO 24/7 mobile app is available at

Calvert County Officials Urge Awareness During Hurricane Preparedness Week

National Hurricane Preparedness Week began Sunday, May 15, and the Calvert County Division of Emergency Manage- ment is teaming with the Maryland Emer- gency Management Agency (MEMA) and the National Weather Service (NWS) to pro- mote citizen awareness and preparedness. The Atlantic hurricane season lasts from June to November but most hurricane-like weather is seen between mid-August and late October. Calvert County is at risk for strong winds, heavy rain, inland flooding and other severe weather. Residents can be “weather ready” by ensuring they know how to get a warning, have a plan and prac- tice safety tips. The NWS reports that in Maryland it is possible to see hurricanes or hurricane-like activity during the summer. NWS notes that damage to coastlines and destruction several hundred miles inland is possible with these tropical storms. Hurricanes can produce up to 150 mile-per-hour winds,

devastating high tides, flooding from tor- rential rain and even tornadoes. This time of year is a good time to sign up for Calvert ALERT, a notification sys- tem that can send messages by text, email, fax, land line and pager. Residents are urged to visit the county website and click the Emergency Alerts link to register for the notification service. Those without In- ternet access can call 410-535-1600, ext. 2638, to sign up. Residents are also encour- aged to stay on top of emergency informa- tion by downloading the free “Prepare Me Calvert” mobile application now available for iOS (Apple) and Android devices. To learn more about emergency pre - paredness, contact the Calvert County Department of Public Safety, Division of Emergency Management, at 410-535- 1600, ext. 2638. For information on Calvert County Government, visit www.co.cal. md.us or like us on Facebook.

Residents can also take actions to remain safe by practicing the following tips:

· Stay tuned to radio and TV stations for official weather information.

· Follow instructions and advice given by emergency officials.

· Stay indoors during the hurricane and away from windows and glass doors.

· Close all interior doors; secure and brace external doors.

· Take refuge in a small interior room, closet or hallway on the lowest level.

· Avoid using the phone except in the case of emergencies.

· Avoid elevators.

· If you live in a mobile home, plan to leave. Mobile homes are unsafe in high

winds.

· Do not attempt to evacuate during the height of a hurricane. You are safer in

your home than out on the road.

· Ensure a supply of water for sanitary purposes such as for cleaning and flush-

ing toilets. Fill a bathtub or other large container with water. This is important for those whose water runs off of an electrical system.

We like having a feeling of purpose. We love to travel, we love the outdoors and we are both very social people. We bike, hike, kayak, run, we are Tough Mudders and we love our four kids. One is in the Coast Guard, one is just out of college and two are in still in college. We started this business because living in the Shenando- ah valley with all of the wineries around us and well, how could we not? We love wine! We live part of the time in Southern Maryland because our jobs keep us here, and the rest of our time is spent traveling and working out of our workshop in our Virginia home. We tailor our items to what we are fa- miliar with and themes that we hold dear to our hearts. Bryan is a Maryland native and anyone from Maryland knows blue crabs are a big influence in the life and cuisine of the area. In true Marylander fashion, we have several blue crab and sea creature themed items such as mermaids, ship›s wheels and starfish. Bryan is also a retired Navy Chief and we take great pride

in being a veteran owned small business. Many of our items feature a Navy an- chor in support of our Military friends and family. Bryan is owner, creator and de- signer of the products made by NHW&W. Wendy is a Pennsylvania native (a Mary- land transplant) and has been living in Southern Maryland for 24 years.

SPACE SAVING CALCULATION
STEP 1
The obvious difference
between a tank and a
tankless is its size.
Not only will you gain
significant space, but
you’ll 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 won’t
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 ft 2 of
space. If 1 ft 2 is worth $200, that’s $2,600 (13 ft 2 x $200)
worth of space you could be saving at Noritz.

THE MEN AND WOMEN OF LAW ENFORCEMENT IN SOUTHERN MARYLAND

SOME OF OUR GREATEST UNSUNG HEROES

Southern Marylanders You Should Know

By David Spigler Contributing Writer

On May 15, 2016, we will observe Peace Officers Memorial Day and commence the annual celebration of National Police Week to pay tribute to the local, state, and Federal peace of- ficers who have died in the line of duty. This holiday was created on October 1, 1961 when the US Congress asked President John F. Kennedy to designate this date to honor all of our fallen po- lice. A year later, the President signed this Bill into law “to pay tribute to the law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and to voice our appreciation for all those who

currently serve on the front lines of the battle against crime…”

I am privileged to count many former and current members

of our Calvert, St. Mary’s and Charles County Sheriffs’ Offic- es, the Maryland State Police, US Capitol Police, and our De- partment of Natural Police among my friends here in Southern Maryland. They are all exceptional individuals, thoroughly dedicated to their profession, and extremely motivated to serve our citizens while preserving the peace. The great thing about these “unsung heroes” that I admire the most is knowing when they take their uniforms off, they are just good, wholesome people just like you and I. They love to have fun and they exude a great deal of friendliness that belies their seriousness for their profession. In all of my life, I don’t know of a time when a Police Officer has had more of a challenge and is faced with more pressure and scrutiny in order to perform his or her job to the expecta- tion of others. I believe a “good cop” has unfairly come “under the gun” to prove himself or herself to various factions and media types who have no real appreciation for the service our police provide our citizens on a daily basis. I know person-

ally of the lack of credit provided these dedicated professionals whose efforts go above and beyond the call of duty, yet are so often taken for granted.

of life of so many of our fine officers within our nearby area; the loss of the Montgomery County Police Officer killed dur- ing a routine traffic stop by a drunk driver, the horrific loss of a lady cop and former Marine in Prince William County on her first day on duty, the unfortunate loss of a Prince George’s County undercover cop by friendly fire, and the recent unpro- voked shooting of a Virginia State Trooper at the Richmond bus terminal are just a very few of the sad tragedies that have given me pause and cause me to wonder where do we find these wonderful heroes willing to put their lives on the line for us, day in and day out. To better understand what is there about this often thank- less occupation that makes a man or woman aspire to be a po- lice officer, I sought out the thoughts of several of my police friends as to why they chose law enforcement for their life’s work? Let me take a few moments to share with you their re- sponses…our County Sheriff Mike Evans is the son of the for- mer Deputy Superintendent of the Maryland State Police and was the biggest influence for his decision to become a trooper himself following a stint in the Army. Sheriff Tim Cameron in Saint Mary’s County wanted to get involved with helping people and police work provided numerous ways for him to serve the citizens every day. Calvert Assistant Sheriff, Major Dave McDowell, also is the son of a police officer and was inspired by seeing his dad go to work in his uniform every day. He was impressed by the respect he gave and received from everyone and watched the pride he exuded whenever he stated he was a Prince Georges Police Officer. My friend, Lt, David Payne with the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office and former County Mardi Gras King, decided to become a police officer while on active duty as a United States Marine. The Corps instilled in David the traits of “Dependability, Integrity, Dedication, Initiative, Bearing, Unselfishness, Courage, and Loyalty”. He wanted to use these traits in a career once he left the military. Law enforcement allowed him the best oppor- tunity to apply this knowledge. Lieutenant Rosemary King Chappell, a Maryland State Trooper, also grew up in a law enforcement family and liked the idea of helping others while trying to make a difference. She enjoyed working with a team and the “brotherhood” it brings. She chose the State Police because of their reputation and professionalism they always displayed! I am with you Lieutenant!

Further, Deputy David Gatton always knew he wanted to be a police officer, and after many twists and turns he finally

made his way back to becoming a career officer. Looking

back, his only wish is that he would have started much earlier

in life pursuing his dream. Another friend, Lt. Shawn Garren,

a member of the Maryland Natural Resources Police grew up

in New York and at a very young age wanted to be a Game

Warden due to his love of nature and his passion for fishing, hiking, boating, and biking. Upon moving to Maryland with his parents, he learned this agency provides so much more in the way of challenges than the position of a Game Warden. He has loved every minute of his work during a 28 year ca- reer. Sam Hooper, the husband of one of my co-workers and

a retired Prince Georges County Police Officer now working

for the Charles County Sheriff’s Officer, was motivated to be- come a Police Officer because he knew he wanted to make

a difference for people and families in the community who

could not defend themselves from criminals who prey on them. Well said, sir! By the way, Sam was born on May 15 th , the day created to nationally recognize police officers. He cannot imagine any better way to spending his birthday every year in any other way then to honor those men and woman that

made the ultimate sacrifice, Each year he and his family visit the Police Memorial in DC to honor these fallen heroes on his

birthday!

You may not know, but two of our five current Calvert County Commissioners are retired career police officers. For- mer President of the BOCC, Commissioner Pat Nutter remem- bers as a young lad on an outing with his mother spotting a tall, sharp, neatly uniformed State Trooper with shiny brass and shoes. At that early age, he thought he was looking at the real Superman! This impression led to Pat completing a 30 year career in law enforcement. And Commissioner Tom Hejl, former Assistant Calvert County Sheriff, had a similar experience as a youngster when he and his dad went into a restaurant in Baltimore. Sitting at the counter in an impressive looking uniform sat a big, very erect State Trooper. Tom told

his dad right then and there he was going to be a State Trooper. And as he grew up, “he stuck by his guns” and made it happen.

In fact he had an illustrious 25 year career with the State Police

followed by a second career as a Calvert County Deputy. I wanted to know more about this work, so I asked each

of my friends to tell me something about their profession that

brought them their greatest joy or fondest memory. I knew

it had to be more than just the respect the uniform provided

them. Sheriff Evans was proudest of “his record of remov- ing over 800 drunk drivers from the roadways, worked hard to solve cases, and treated everyone with respect, even the suspects who were uncooperative. He always used the least amount of force possible and felt the most rewarded when he was able to arrest a suspect without any innocent people be- coming hurt in the process”. Sheriff Cameron has literally hundreds of great memories

during his time in law enforcement, but it is the “Shop With

A Cop” program each Christmas that stands out the most. He

thinks it’s a great way to get out in the public and interface with young people at an early age to establish relationships that will last a lifetime. He thinks it is an excellent means to make an impression and provides him with a great deal of satisfaction. Major McDowell felt there were many great feelings of ac- complishment during his long career, but at the top of his list is the day he was sworn in as the Assistant Sheriff and have his son watch as his father pinned on his badge was an especially unique moment he will never forget. Further he feels “his many years as a child abuse investigator gave him his greatest sense of achievement”. Lieutenant David Payne also had so many good memories from his many years in law enforcement, but the ones he con- siders his best are those that come back when he sees folks he previously helped or arrested and they thank him. These memories convinces David “he did make a difference, often times bigger than he would ever thought possible”. Deputy David Gatton’s fondest memories involve his work with the youth of the community who he often comes into con- tact with. He enjoys standing around talking with them, and laughing and carrying on in a friendly atmosphere. “He feels

it good when they can see law enforcement as the good guy,

not the one who causes bad news when he shows up. He has great conversations with them and hopes this leaves a good impression. He hopes he has been able to steer them down the right path. And if just one young person with whom he has come into contact avoids drugs or crime, he says his whole career was well worth it”!

Lieutenant Chappell remembers working for the Calvert Investigative Team [CIT] investigating a homicide. With two other members of the Team, they tracked the suspect to North Carolina and located him and got a full confession. The law enforcement officials in North Carolina were amazed at the

Team’s tenacity, stating “they found one illegal from a group

of 200,000 was like finding a needle in a haystack”! Lieutenant Garren says there is no one memory that stands

out, but looking back over the 28 years of service, it is the feel- ing of accomplishment and satisfaction it gives him. When you do your job day in day out, you don’t always realize the difference you may have made. But when you look at your entire career you can see there are less drunken boaters on our waterways, and less confrontation with hunters and oth- ers involving conservation cases. He states “success is not measured in the number of tickets or warnings one issues, but really is determined by the number of people you have reached and changed their minds on why conservation and public safe- ty is so important”. Deputy Sam Hooper sees his great joy as the ability to give back to our next generation of officers. Currently, as a member of his Department’s Field Training Officers Program [FTOP], he truly enjoys sharing his experiences and training with their newest officers. More importantly, he feels it “a privilege to share in their career experiences and their journey”. Commissioner Pat Nutter’s fondest memory of his time as

a law enforcement officer was “earning the reputation of be- ing known as “Andy” the sheriff on the “Andy Griffith Show” and later on “Mayberry RFD”. He remembers taking calls in the middle of the night or folks coming to his door at 2:00 and 3:00 AM seeking help with their family or domestic issues and having the patience and understanding to listen to their prob- lems and offer what assistance he could provide. He always felt close to his community and derived great joy in removing his gun belt to play football with the kids! He say he has been doing this long before it became fashionable in social media venues such as Facebook”. Commissioner Tom Hejl recalls handling a domestic vio- lence case long before these incidents became newsworthy. He handled the case by the book as he was taught. Years later the victim’s sister approached him and thanked him profusely for saving her sister and treating her with such kindness. In anoth-

er case he was working a string of burglaries in the County and

ultimately identified two suspects. In writing search warrants for these two residents, the criminal investigation team went in and recovered over $100,000 worth of stolen property most of which was returned to the rightful owners. Finally he derived great satisfaction in knowing he assisted so many people in a positive way during his career. He is often thanked for doing things he can’t even remember. He knows he has saved several lives along the way. Yet his greatest satisfaction comes from “knowing he remained true to his values and those values the

State Police instilled in him during his training and throughout his 25 year career”. He continues to live by that creed today. Having received these inputs from these fine gentleman and lady, I am even more impressed that these folks are just normal, dedicated people who are down to earth, yet passion- ate in their desires to help others and make a difference. And each officer is special in finding the “where with all” and the reasons to go to work each day. Many of the people I know well who have been friends of mine for a long time tell me they could never do what these folks have done. I put myself in this same group. There is no way I can see myself going out into this world every day with the current and potential issues our nation is facing.

I intended to include in this story some of the “downsides”

my police friends have endured. Many of these great individu- als are uncomfortable thinking about the bad days, much less writing about them. I knew this part of the story might be

difficult, and my attempts were to make this a positive tribute

to these heroes. So out of respect to these friends, I will forego

this side of the story. Suffice to say, one only has to watch the current crop of television crime shows and police stories to realize there are moments in every cops’ life that would scare most of us away from ever wanting to pursue this line of work. This knowledge makes me even more aware and appreciative

of the dangers a police officer faces on a regular basis. It is so unbelievable that there are people willing to accept the nega- tive aspects of this work knowing they will face these burdens daily over a 20 year, 30 year, or longer career. Where do we find these magnificent people???

I truly want to thank my special contributors to this story;

Sheriff Mike Evans, Sheriff Tim Cameron, Assistant Sheriff David McDowell, Lieutenant David Payne, Deputy David Gatton, Lieutenant Rosemary Chappell, Lieutenant Shawn Garren, Deputy Sam Hooper and Commissioners Nutter and Hejl. Thank you for your responses, but most of all thank you for the dedicated years of service you so professionally provid- ed to all of our citizens! Lastly, I wish to salute all the members of law enforcement, not only here in Southern Maryland, but throughout our great Nation for your great individual sacri- fices. Thank you! And please be safe!

Calvert Announces Plans for New Standalone Animal Shelter

By Crista Dockray Staff Writer

On Tuesday, the Calvert County Board of County Commissioners announced their plans for a new animal shelter and adoption facility. The shelter will be for Calvert only and Calvert will be pulling out of the cur- rent tri-county animal shelter once the new shelter comes online. At the press conference, Slaughenhoupt explained that it is well known that the ex- isting animal shelter needs significant im- provements. He said that after studying the options with the current shelter, they have concluded that the anticipated costs of the potential tri-county animal shelter replace- ment along with additional staffing would likely be about the same as taking a sepa- rate approach. Another large factor is that the current shelter is just too small to handle all of the animals within the tri-county area. “There was one compelling reason why we are taking this step, growth,” said Cal- vert County Commissioner President Evan Slaughenhoupt. “In the past, the tri-county population was 85,000 people. Right now we have 90,000 people just in Calvert County alone, so clearly we’ve outgrown that facility…” said former county commissioner Linda Kelley. The new animal shelter in Calvert Coun- ty was made possible by a public/private partnership with Rick Bailey from Marrick Properties. “What a wonderful, fabulous opportu- nity that has presented itself,” said Slaugh- enhoupt. “We have been pleased, honored, and humbled to have an outstanding citizen and a true gentleman of our county.” Bailey said he had heard about the issue

through George Stewart, a partner of Mar- rick Properties, who called him up some- time last fall with the idea. After presenting the idea to the commissioners, the project went forward. “I’m honored and privileged to play a part in this with our organization to help the county,” said Bailey. Marrick Properties will be building the property and the county will be leasing the facility with the option to purchase in the future. Bailey said that they have already hired a nationally known architect and engineers that have a reputation for animal facilities and that they have already done an initial needs analysis assessment. “It’s going to be a well thought out facil- ity, it’s going to be a well constructed facil- ity and we are just privileged to play a part in it,” said Bailey. According to the County Administrator Terry Shannon, the size of the shelter will be anywhere from 8,000 to 14,000 square feet and it will employ up to 10 full time positions, including a volunteer coordina- tor and a manager. Slaughenhoupt said that it has plans to include a walking trail and a barn, which means it will house not just household pets. “Calvert county’s announcement of this new shelter comes very early in the plan- ning process so we really don’t have a lot of the operational details finalized, they are in the works though,” said Shannon. She said she does know that the policy of the shelter will be to save all healthy and treatable animals, even when the shelter is full. Shannon said only terminally ill ani- mals or those considered dangerous to pub- lic safety will be euthanized and the shelter staff will be required to work with veteri- narians to make this determination. Shannon also said the new facility will

house the Calvert County Animal Control Officers. “I am happy to report today, with the commission- ers support, the county’s animal control officers will relocate their administrative operation to the new facility. This move will help make our efforts more efficient and will better assist our citizens by providing a facility closer to home. This is also great news for the sheriff’s office as it frees up much need- ed space at our

headquarters,” said Sheriff Mike Evans on the matter. The new property will be located on

a three-acre lot at 5055 Hallowing Point

Road in Prince Frederick. The cost of the facility will be determined along with the cost of the lease for the county. Slaughen- houpt said he suspects the cost of the lease may be slightly higher than the $200,000 a

year the county currently spends for its part

in the Tri-County Animal Shelter. Slaughenhoupt said they anticipate that

this facility will become operational in cal- endar year 2018 and when it opens, Calvert will be pulling out of the Tri-County Ani- mal Shelter. He said the Calvert is speaking

to both Charles and St. Mary’s Counties to

make sure that the

transition is as smooth as possible. According to Randy Guy, Commissioner President in St. Mary’s County, Charles County is looking to build their own shelter. “I think Charles County is going to go further north up and around La Plata and that’s just too far for us to run back and forth,” said Guy. Consequently it may be more than likely that all three counties will be going their separate ways. “We’ve already announced to people about the possibility of our own control center,” said Guy.

Commissioner’s Corner

Animal Shelter

On behalf of the entire Calvert County Board of County Commissioners, I was honored to make an an- nouncement Tuesday, May 17, 2016, that is a good news item and denotes a change in direction for Southern Mary- land. Located near Hallow- ing Point Park on Route 231 will be a Public-Private-Vol- unteer Partnership that will yield a new Animal Shelter and Adoption facility for Calvert County. We anticipate this facility will become operational in calendar year 2018, will be

managed by Calvert County with much participation by various volunteers. During our internal discussions, we conclud- ed the anticipated costs of continuing in potential replacement of the Tri-County Shelter and needed additional staffing would likely to be about the same amount as taking a separate approach. I’m sure there are several questions to answer, and most an- swers may be “to be decided” or “we are working on it” but don’t take the lack of very detailed responses diminish the over- all direction. Calvert County will phase out its participation in what has been a very successful Tri-County Animal Shelter arrangement. Why now and why change from Tri-County to our own shel- ter? Growth. When the original shelter was opened southern Maryland was a very rural, sparsely populated area. Since then, the human population increased, but more so has the number of pets and other animals. The status of the Tri-County Shelter was being evaluated and that prompted us to look at all options. What I will describe is a fabulous opportunity. Our announcement occurs while we are finalizing our FY-17 budget. Nothing mentioned affects that budget, but will have an impact upon the subsequent budget years. Many more details will be forthcoming. Stay tuned.

Sheriff’s NEWS

The Sheriff’s Office is off to a great start in 2016. Our newest deputies who graduated from the academy in late 2015 are proving to be outstanding members of the agency. Their energy and fresh per- spective are equating to a positive impact on serv- ing the community. In February, we honored our top performers at the annual Calvert County Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center Awards Ceremony. Sheriff Evans recognized a combined total of nine- ty-seven sworn and civilian personnel, business owners, and individual citizens for their outstanding efforts and contributions to serving the citizens of Calvert County. In January, the Sheriff’s Office welcomed our newest four-legged crime fighter, Canine Arn, a Belgian Malinois puppy. Arn is the first puppy the Sheriff’s Office has purchased. Prior to Arn, canines were purchased as young adults with basic training. Acquiring Arn as a puppy and training him ourselves will result in a highly efficient canine at a much lower cost to tax payers. As we move into the spring and summer months, we are looking forward to engaging our youth at Camp Junior Sheriff. So far in 2016, 460 middle school students have successfully completed the D.A.R.E. program. Also in the coming months, we will be releasing several public safety videos that educate the public on how to interact with law enforcement. Deputy 1 st Class Jeffrey Denton who is currently assigned to the Patrol Bureau is recog- nized as the Sheriff’s Office Deputy of the Quarter. Deputy Denton serves as a Field Training Officer who mentors and trains newly graduated deputies and is a member of the CCSO Special Operations Team. During the first quarter, Deputy Denton was one of the highest producers in the area of traffic stops, DUI arrests, and Criminal arrests and the highest producer for illegal drug arrests. The Sheriff’s Office highest perform-

drug arrests. The Sheriff’s Office highest perform - ing squad for the first quarter for 2016

ing squad for the first quarter for 2016 is Squad #3. Squad #3 is led by Sergeant David Canning. Squad #3 has the fewest number of personnel of any squad, yet still had the highest daily productivity. The members of Squad #3 are Corporals Carter and Wilson, Deputy First Class Weems, Velasquez, Esposito, and Migliaccio; Deputies Buck, Ward, Williamson, and Clark.

The Detention Center has launched several exciting initiatives in 2016. Naloxone education for inmates has commenced with four certified inmates being released thus far with the intranasal spray, prescription and training necessary to potentially save lives in the community. The Health Depart- ment has trained and certified 29 people through the Detention Center this year. The Detention Center’s “Jailhouse Rock- ers” have already started their Relay for Life cam- paign this year with a staff breakfast and “Wine and Design” fundraisers. The Jailhouse Rockers are poised to make another successful attack on Can- cer this year and efforts will continue to ramp up as spring approaches. Supervisors nominated ten outstanding officers for Officer of the First Quarter of 2016. The selection process was difficult and the close compe- tition forced a tied vote resulting in our first co-rec- ognition of this award. We are proud to announce CFC Caroline Briscoe and CO1 Danny Switzer as Officers of the First Quarter of 2016. Our entire staff delivers excellent service to the community and our agency and we are honored to recognize these two top performers. The Team of the Quarter is Team 4 consisting of: Sgt. Scott, Cpl. Commodore, CFC Roberts and Cook, C.O.1 Strain, Hamilton, Her- nandez, Ashley, Brooks, and Zalusky. Team 4 is being recognized for their excellent performance statistics.

Missionary Family of Eight Moves to Make a Difference

By Crista Dockray Staff Writer

Photos provided by Jeff Weimert

A family of eight is picking up their home

in Southern Maryland and moving it to a different continent. Husband and wife Jeff and Emily Weimert with their six children T’aunie, 13, Byron, 12, Josiah, 12, Selah, 10, Trinity, 9, and Avigail, 5, will be moving to the Philippines as missionaries. The love Jeff and Emily have for the Phil- ippines started when they went for a mis- sionary trip in 2002 and got engaged. “The Philippines just never left our hearts, we always had that longing to go back,” said Emily. But when they started a family and life kept going, they pushed off the idea and, be-

sides short terms trips to the country, they let their time in the Philippines be something of the past.

A year and a half ago, however, things

changed. They heard about aquaponics, a self-sustaining way of growing food, from Jeff’s brother. The aquaponic system starts with fish. The fish grow and fertilize the water and in turn the fertilized water goes up to the plants, which draw the nutrients and grow without using dirt. “It’s highly efficient and it can grow a ton of food,” said Jeff. According to Jeff, an aquaponic system is completely self-sustaining, uses 90 percent less water than a normal garden, runs off of solar power, and is zero cost to the people once it’s built. It is built with local materi- als and takes about two weeks to build and eight to twelve months to become fully established. The system that Jeff helped to build in the Philippines holds about 200 fish when it fully matured and it produces enough food to feed between 30 and 50 children a day. This is actually a smaller system. One of the larger systems, located in Honduras, is actu- ally a 10,000-gallon system that holds thou- sands of fish and provides food and income to an orphanage. After learning about all the good it could do, the Weimerts decided to move to the Philippines permanently through their mis-

sion organization Go To Nations. “We decided that missions have always been in our heart as a family, so we want to go and serve,” said Jeff. “If you have the ability to help people, you should.” They actually built a two tank aquaponic system of their own in their home. It holds 50 tilapia and grows tomatoes, beans, onions, and lettuce. “We made it so we could learn and make our mistakes early,” said Jeff. Once they move over, the family will be living in Iloilo, a city in the central western Philippines. Their focus will be on three dif- ferent areas within their community. The first will be building and teaching the lo- cals how to build aquaponic systems. They will be putting the systems in the hands of schools, churches, and organizations to help break the cycle of poverty. They will also be traveling to other parts of Southeast Asia to do the same. The second area they will be working in is the Sunshine Center, which tutors children that couldn’t afford or have dropped out of school. The center also does feeding pro- grams, ministry, and just provides a place for kids to be kids. The last place of their focus will be a dump community, a place where people live in heaps of trash and pick through it every- day just to get enough things to sell in order to make money to eat for that day. The whole family is very excited about the endeavor. “I really want to help the little children, the orphans, because I was adopted. I want to show the children a family and what love feels like, I just want to let them know that God loves them even in their circumstanc- es,” said T’aunie. “I am really looking forward to it. Some- times I just lay in my bed and I wish I was there already,” said Salah. “I just want to go, I don’t wait to wait any- more,” said Trinity. Before the family arrives to the Philip- pines, they will be attending two-week aqua- ponic training in Florida in August then in September they will be leaving for Thailand to go to missionary training for 10.5 weeks. Come November, they will arrive in the Philippines. So far they have had numerous amounts

of individuals and organizations backing them with support in prayer, spreading the word, and helping financially. Their goal is to have 150 people and 10 to 12 churches backing them, and according to Emily, they are halfway there.

If you have any questions about aqua- ponics or their mission, email Jeff at jeff. weimert@gotonations.org or find them on Facebook at “Cultivating A Harvest. If you would like to donate, visit www. gotonations.org/weimert.

Poetry and Percussion Open Mic at CalvART Gallery

The Arts Council of Calvert County in- vites the public to a creative evening of po- etry and percussion at an open mic happy hour at the CalvART Gallery on Friday, May 20 th from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Surround yourself with the creative works of local artists while listening to fea- tured poets Maryland Poet Laureate 2004- 2009 Michael S. Glaser and Annapolis poet Rocky Jones as they share their insights through verse. The mic will open up for poets and percussionists, who want to share their rhythms and talents. Come out to share or just to commune with the essence of art.

Michael S. Glaser served as head of the Division of Arts and Letters and chair of the English Department at St. Mary’s Col- lege of Maryland and is currently professor emeritus at the college. He received the Homer Dodge Endowed Award for Excel- lence in Teaching, and the Columbia Merit Award from the Poetry Committee of the

Greater Washington, D.C. area for his ser- vice to poetry. Michael published poetry books titled; A Lover’s Eye, In the Men’s Room and Other Poems, which won the 1996 Painted Bride Quarterly chapbook competition, and Being a Father. Rocky Jones poems often bring a sar- castic perspective to everyday living and ideologies. He hosts The Poet Experience at Zu Coffee and Evil Grin at Ahh, Coffee - two monthly poetry readings in Annapolis. Rocky, a musician and multimedia poet, has performed at Hard Bargain Farm in Ac- cokeek and Hateful Acres in Freeland. His work has appeared in Gargoyle Magazine, Truck, and MiPOesias. The CalvART Gallery is located at 110 Solomons Island Road in Prince Frederick next to The Greene Turtle. Hors d’oeuvres from Dream Weaver’s Café will be offered to quests.
