County Awards Contract


For Solar Fields
By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer
Aiming to reduce the countys electrical power costs, the Commissioners of St.
Marys County voted to approve a contract
award for the construction of several solar
power panel sites throughout the county at
their regular Tuesday meeting.
The contractor who will be building,
operating and maintaining the sites is Energy Matters LLC at sites to include the St.
Andrews Landfill, Margaret Brent Middle
School, a system on the rooftop of the Wicomico Building as well as possible systems
on future parking canopies at the county
governmental center in Leonardtown, according to county documents.
The county will form a management
committee to enter into contract negotiations with the developer for a power purchasing agreement over a 20-year period.
The contractor will absorb the cost of
building and maintaining the sites and the
county will not provide capital funding or
the solar project.
The public-private partnership between

the county and Energy Matters LLC will


be for a 20 year period.
According to county documents that estimated the benefits to both parties in the
partnership each site could generate between 2.2 and 3.2 million kilowatt hours of
electricty that represents energy sales to a
utility of between $700,000 to $1 million.
The contractor would take most of that
amount from selling the electricty to the
power grid and the county would take a
percentage outlined in the power purchase
agreement.
The design of the solar sites could take
between two to three months, with permitting taking another three to four months.
Construction is likely to take about six
months, according to county estimates.
The sites would be expected to be operational in about one year from the countys
approval of the contract.

Funding Announced for Homeless


Veterans in Southern Maryland
Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-5)
announced today that the U.S. Department
of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
has awarded $44,220 to the Calvert County
Housing Authority to help find permanent
homes for homeless veterans. The grant
funding is provided through the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program
(HUD-VASH)and can be used forhousing
homeless veterans in Calvert, Charles, and
St. Marys counties.
Im pleased that five additional HUDVASH vouchers have been awarded to
the Calvert County Housing Authority to
help provide permanent housing to veterans in Southern Marylands tri-county region,stated Congressman Hoyer. These
vouchers are provided based on results

from the annual Point-in-Time survey, a


count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals, which I am proud to support each year in Southern Maryland. It is
important that we do everything we can
to ensure that our brave veterans and their
families are off of the streets and in a place
they can call home. I will continue to work
in Congress to push for measures that help
get veterans the resources they need as they
transition back home and into civilian life.
Southern Maryland has received a total
of 35 vouchers since December 2014. In
addition to providing housing assistance,
the HUD-VASH program provides veterans with case management and clinical services through the Department of
VeteransAffairs.

NAS PAX RIVER sets noise


advisory for June 10-11
Communities surrounding the naval air
station are advised that low-level tower
fly-by testing events are scheduled to take
place June 10 - 11, 2016 just off-shore of
Point Lookout, Md. Test events are scheduled from 7:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. The aircraft conducting testing will be similar to
a Boeing 707. These low-level jet aircraft

flight operations are required in order to


conduct calibration testing with ground
based equipment. Residents may notice increased noise levels due to these operations.
As with all operations, NAS Patuxent
River takes precautions to lessen the impact
of testing activities on the community. For
more information call 1-866-819-9028.

The Southern Maryland Youth Orchestra and Choir (SMYOC) will make its first
appearance at the Leonardtown Wharf
tommorrow at a free concert that will see
more than 60 young people from the tricounty area play a broad selection of music.
Peter Wilson, one of the volunteer organizers of the youth group, said that having
a choir and orchestra play together is something SMYOC specializes in.
The kids love it, Wilson said. If youth
play music, then adults will play music.
Music expands your mind, its a life
preparation exercise.
The concert comes at a time of impending change for the youth group as it is set to
open a new rehearsal site in Prince Frederick in Calvert County to augment its Leonardtown site.
The orchestra and choir rehearse separately and come together for performances; Wilson believed this expansion would
greatly increase the number of young people who would be interested in trying out
for the group.
I think were going to double in size,
Wilson said.

Applications continue coming in for


young people to play in the group, Wilson
said, whether to play an instrument or sing
in the choir; the youngest members of the
group are 8 years old while instrumentalists typically start at the age of 11.
Young people who want to join have to
audition to show they have the requisite
skills to perform at a specific level.
They have to be quality kids, Wilson
said, adding that they have to pay a fee to
be a part of the organization to pay for the
salaried instructors and conductors.
Typically the age limit will go up to 18
years old.
But we take them up to 21 years old,
Wilson said.
The selection will include songs and
musical pieces from Broadway, the classical period, popular instrumental pieces
and even rock music.
Something there will appeal to absolutely everybody, Wilson said.
The free concert will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Radiology Imaging Associates Among


First in Area to Perform Lower Dose
3DMammography
Radiology Imaging Associates (RIA) is
now offering the latest innovative exam
for breast cancer detection, using the low
dose Genius 3D Mammography System from Hologic. This advanced breast
tomosynthesis technology allows our radiologists to obtain the best possible images
while providing the most comfortable and
safest patient experience available. Threedimensional mammography (tomosynthesis) has proven beneficial to patient outcomes with both increased cancer detection
and a reduction in the need for call-backs.
The additional benefits of the low dose
technology include a reduction in the scan
time (up to 60%) and about a 40% reduction
in radiation exposure for the patient. The
use of the low dose Genius 3D Mammography is a great step forward in our
womens imaging program, says Joseph P.
Finizio, MD, Medical Director, RIA. This
new system offers unparalleled diagnostic

capabilities, a more comfortable exam and


ultimately greater peace of mind for our patients. The low dose 3D mammography is
our recommendation for women of all ages
and breast densities. The system allows our
radiologists to more effectively pinpoint the
size, shape and location of abnormalities
while simultaneously decreasing the number of women asked to return for additional
testing. RIAs radiologists are certified by
the American Board of Radiologists and
have experience with over 35,000 tomosynthesis studies to date. RIA offices have
been recognized by the American College
of Radiology (ACR) with the designation
as Breast Imaging Centers of Excellence
for our comprehensive womens imaging
programs which includes lower dose 3D
mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy,
ultrasound, ultrasound-guided biopsy,and
breast MRI and breast MRI-guided biopsy.

Lecture by: Chuck Fithian


Jack Nastyface and His World: The Archaeology of a British Warship
Join Historic St. Marys City for a free
lecture June 16, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in the
HSMC Visitor Center (18751 Hogaboom
Lane). Chuck Fithian, one of the regions
foremost experts on 18th and early-19th
century British and American naval history, will be discussing his 28 year long
research and conservation of an 18th century sloop of war discovered in 1984.
On May 25, 1798, while on convoy escort duty the British sloop of war DeBraak
was struck by a sudden squall, capsized,
and foundered on the Delaware coast. Discovered in 1984, the surviving hull remnant and its associated artifact collection
represents a rare and unparalleled view
into the material world of shipboard life
aboard a Royal Navy vessel. This warships presence in American waters is an

archaeological expression of important


events that were affecting and linking the
lives of diverse peoples living in the Atlantic world of the late eighteenth century.
The life of the sailor of the eighteenth
century is frequently misunderstood,
hidden by their distinctive lifestyle and
longstanding popular mythology. Using
information derived from the study of the
DeBraak and its artifacts, Mr. Fithian will
provide an alternate archaeological perspective on the world of the naval sailor.
His talk will show the complexities of
their wooden world, and place it into the
wider context of maritime culture, naval
warfare, and the historical events shaping
the period.
Chuck Fithian was the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs curator of
archaeology for 28 years, and now is a lecturer in anthropology at Washington College in Chestertown, Md.

Southern Maryland Revise


Articulation Agreement

Change Means Seamless Transition to


Bachelors Program

Florida Institute of Technology and the


College of Southern Maryland signed a revised articulation agreement May 20 that
provides a seamless transition for students
in associate degree programs in arts and
sciences, general studies business administration or business administration-technical management to the bachelor degree
in logistics management program.
The agreement means College of Southern Maryland graduates within the four
associate degree programs will be able
to transfer into Florida Techs completion
program at junior standing. The B.S. Logistics Management program is taught in
Lexington Park and California, Maryland,
in a face-to-face format by professors who
are career professionals in their fields.

The degree prepares students to manage


every aspect of a companys flow of goods,
resources and information to meet the
needs of customers, suppliers and stakeholders. Logistics managers are heavily
relied on locally at NAS Patuxent River,
but their skills are needed across industries, including humanitarian assistance
and disaster relief.
For more information, contact AnnaBelle Sanders at asanders@fit.edu
or 301-862-1004. For information on
CSMs transfer process and the Florida
Tech articulation agreement, visit www.

The National Park Service Chesapeake
Bay office and Chesapeake Conservancy
are pleased to support events along the
Captain John Smith Chesapeake National
Historic Trail on National Trails Day and
Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week.
Each year, on the first Saturday in June,
the American Hiking Society celebrates
trails in America and encourages people
to experience the great outdoors on trails
with friends and family. Events are sponsored by local organizations, state parks,

new trail activity.
John Smith Chesapeake Trail staff and
the Chesapeake Conservancy are supporting six events at partner sites in Maryland,
Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Most events
are guided trips on the water, and some
are hiking and biking activities. Some of
the paddling trips are provided at no cost
to participants, honoring the National Park
Service Centennial goal to help create and
connect with the next generation of park
visitors and supporters.
National Trails Day is a great way to encourage people to enjoy the outdoors,Joel
Dunn, president and CEO of Chesapeake
Conservancy, said.The John Smith Chesapeake Trail provides an opportunity to
connect with the natural beauty as well as
the rich history and culture of the Chesapeake. When people visit places along the
trail, they fall in love with the Chesapeake
and they want to protect it. Our hope is that
they will then vote for it, donate money to
conserve it, and even dedicate their careers
to it.

Calvert Teachers Seek Move


toSt. Marys
By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer
Education officials in Calvert County
say they are worried that some of their best
and most experienced teachers are being
lost to neighboring St. Marys County over
dissatisfaction with their pay schedules.
Teachers in Calvert have long complained of a lack of step increases in their
salaries, which have fallen behind over the
last several budget cycles.
The problem is that we are several
steps behind, said Dennis Mooney, head
of the Calvert teachers union, adding that
teachers looked at the budget process in
St. Marys where elected leaders recently
agreed to bring teachers up to full salaries
that they had been promised.
St. Marys was willing to bring them up
to full salary, Mooney said of the compelling reason behind so many Calvert personnel seeking interviews in St. Marys in
recent months.
Another problem for Calvert teachers,
Mooney said, was one of how much their
years of teaching experience counted towards where they fell in the organizations
pay scale.
Currently, the school system caps the
amount of experience that counts towards
pay scale placement at just five years.
Mooney said that meant that a teacher
with 10 years experience could expect to
come into the Calvert school system at only
step No. 5 on the pay scale, essentially five

steps behind where they could expect to be


placed in neighboring St. Marys.
Mooney said his union was not certain
exactly how many teachers from Calvert
were seeking employment in St. Marys or
possibly in Charles County but the school
system had already lost 46 teachers to
neighboring jurisdictions last year as a result of dissatisfaction with pay.
It is significant, Mooney said of the
number looking to leave this year. This
year is probably close to last year.
Were losing our most valuable teachers; its a large exodus at this time.
Kelly McConkey, member of the Calvert County Board of Education, said there
was a step increase for teachers built into
the fiscal 2017 budget but it wasnt enough
to persuade teachers to give Calvert more
time to find a solution.
The step increase programmed for this
coming fiscal year costs about $2.7 to
$3 million, McConkey told The County
Times.
He said that Calvert teachers had been
told in past years that money would be
found to make their pay whole after budgets
had been passed and it never happened.
They have every reason to not believe
us, McConkey said. They dont feel appreciated, but they are appreciated.

Police: D.C. Sex Offender Lived


In St. Marys For Months
By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer
A convicted sex offender who claimed
he had a residence in the District of Columbia but was arrested in Lexington Park
Monday has been released from the county
detention center over the concerns of local
police who are worried he may abscond
again.
Darren Steven Redd, 45, was the subject of a search by U.S. Marshals who had
been tracking him since September of last
year after he absconded from his registered
residence in the District, charging papers
stated.
By using cell phone records from a cell
phone known to be used by Redd was
traced to a cell phone tower where it had
been regularly used from March to May
this year federal marshals found it had
linked to a cell tower in Lexington Park.
Marshals also found that on Jan. 7 Redd
had filed unemployment and tax paperwork in Lexington Park.
Last month marshals came to Redds
residence and spoke to somone living there
who identified themselves as Redds wife
and that they had lived there for several
months.
One month later marshals came to arrest and Redd and found him in the master
bedroom of his Lexington Park residence,
according to charging documents filed by
Dep. David Potter.
Det. Cpl. William Raddatz made the actual arrest, court papers showed.
When marshals questioned Redd he told

Pictured: Darren
Steven Redd

them he had a residence in the District;


when marshals told him that the person
living at the residence had been evicted
months ago he changed his story and told
them he was homeless, court papers stated.
Marshals interviewed neighbors, witnesses and property management staff
at the complex who said they were not
aware that Redd was a tier III lifetime sex
offender.
In court papers Potter wrote that the arresting deputy expressed concern that due
to the transient nature of the absconder if
not apprehended he may not be located for
future court proceedings.
Redd was charged with failing to notify
the registry of a temporary address change
and failing to register as a sex offender.

Great Expectations Attached To UAS Site


By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer
At the University of Marylands unmanned systems test site just off Airport
Drive in California, Matt Scassero, a retired Navy captain and aviator hopes to
help start a quiet revolution in the way the
county prospers by staking its claim in
a growing and still unpredictable industry.
Unmanned air vehicles and systems have
proven their worth on the battlefield but
Scassero and his team of researchers and
specialists at the site are looking for ways
to take what started out as military technol-

Pictured Matt Scassero

ogy and turn it to civilian purposes.


In essence he wants to make the small
but growing site into a miniature Patuxent
River Naval Air Station, which has been
the spearhead for naval aviation evolution.
Its about getting research airborne,
Scassero said in an interview with The
County Times. Thats our reason for
being.
While political leaders and economic development pundits have placed great hopes
in turning St. Marys County into a hub for
unmanned systems development, others,
including high-ranking military personnel
of flag rank and even some local business
leaders have privately become detractors of
the project.
They cite a culture of dependence on
federally-funded work and a mindset now
designed more for acquisition of defense
hardware than for testing and research
the difference between the missions of the
Naval Air Systems Command and the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division
that both share space at the navy base.
Theyre wrong and the reason they are
wrong is that this is going to happen, Scassero said of the growing unmanned systems industry. The industry is coming and
theres nothing saying that some of it has to
come to St. Marys County.

The key was the people who work here,


Scassero said, highly trained and technically proficient in writing computer code
and developing software.
The challenge, he said, was to keep them
here.
If another round of sequestration cuts in
the federal budget hit the defense industry
as they did several years ago, defense-related jobs here could be eliminated or moved
to other installations, diminishing the local
economy.
The people are what drives this, Scassero said. And right now we have them.
We need to find a way to keep them here
with civil and commercial research work.
Bill Scarafia, executive director of the
countys Chamber of Commerce agreed
that technically skilled people were the key
to making the project work but it could be
some time before the county could really
call its economy diversified.
Were not going to create a broad spectrum of new jobs overnight, Scarafia said.
We need to get the innovation first through
the research being done.
What could make the county a future
center of autonomous systems excellence
and evolution; the technically proficient
work force, the designation as a place to
freely test so many new systems as well

businesses for sponsoring our 5K Run/Walk/Have Fun.

week of their lives!

as the coming of a dedicated research facility the third building at the Southern
Maryland Higher Education Center, could
also serve to perpetuate one of the countys
lingering problems.
The existence of a two-tier economy, one
level flush with high-paying governmentfunded salaries and another dependent on
providing services to get a share of that
cash, has pervaded the county for decades
but there has been little recourse for those
who live here and who do not have training
to take advantage of better opportunities.
Scassero said the same problem could
exist with the technology-dependent autonomous industry but there was an opportunity as well.
A booming autonomous systems industry could also mean the chance for local
residents to get training to build the parts
necessary for those vehicles, he said.
Our chances of getting heavy manufacturing here are almost zero, Scassero said.
But there is room for light manufacturing.
Such new opportunities could finally bring
the level of economic diversification the
county has sought for the last few years, after sequestration cuts took their toll.
If we dont do anything and theres another down turn in defense budgets, everyone here will feel it, Scassero said.

YOUNGLIFE
TO

NORTHBAY

Scarafia agreed.
As things become more commercialized then we can look at getting manufacturing and distribution jobs here, he said.
Then well have parallel jobs that arent
dependent on the defense industry that
can keep our intellectual property in St.
Marys County.
Scassero said that while military unmanned systems spending is expected to
increase by 5 percent a year the civilian and
commercial spending on that same technology is projected to increase by 19 percent
a year.
Thats where the money is, Scassero
said.
What makes the test site at the county
airport valuable to so many companies and
government agencies pursuing new technologies are airspace, expertise and flight
authorization, Scassero said, since the
sites designation for research work gives
it latitude to fly almost anywhere, all this
while the Federal Aviation Administration

is working on flight rules to govern the use


of civilian unmanned air vehicles in the rest
of the country.
What unmanned air vehicles can do
best within current capabilities is surveillance, a term which causes consternation
for some who worry about privacy issues,
but, Scassero said, it was an activity that
could be used for all kinds of legitimate
purposes, including observing progress of
agriculture and aquaculture crops, inspecting infrastructure like roads and
pipelines, disaster response and
even public safety.
The site earned distinction
recently for taking part in a test
with Charles County search and
rescue in which a dummy was
succesfully dropped in the water and spotted by an unmanned
air vehicle for rescue.
The vehicles themselves are
important, with researchers always looking for sleeker and

Last night, everyone happened to be


home, which is an unusual occurrence,
these days, at Testosterone Terrace. Prince
Firstly and his lovely Lady Sarah had
dropped by to bake a banana cake. Forgotten Middle Child Tim was there, too, having just returned from spending the evening
with his girlfriend, who is new enough to
the scene to not yet have a nickname, but is
equally lovely. And, Baby Ben was in residence, sporting his Playoffs Beardwere
all huge Penguins fans in this household,
no one more so than Benand in case you
arent aware, the Pens are leading 3-1 in the
Stanley Cup finals, right now. He was also
busy demolishing tomorrows lunch, which
Id just finished preparing (it had been a
full hour since dinner, after all, so I dont
know why I was surprised).
Before we all went off to our separate
activities, we were gathered in the family
room, and CNN was on in the background.
The anchor was announcing that Hillary
Clinton had won the California primary,
and was reiterating the news from earlier
in the day, that Clinton was now the official presumptive Democratic nominee for
President of the United States: the first time
a major party would nominate a woman for
the Presidency.

A Moment in History
I should mention, here, that two of my
three offspring are Bernie fans: all three
boys have followed politics from an early
age, because I do, and their father does,
and so theyve been steeped in from their
first memories. This election, though, is
the first in which all three boys will be of
age to vote for our next President, so the
battle has engaged them even more than
usual. Weve had more than a few healthy
and respectfulreally!debates about the
advantages of one candidate over the other;
when the debate does get slightly heated,
which is rare, we retreat to safe and common ground by mutual, unspoken agreement. The area to which we retreat: our
shared horror at the idea that the presumptive Republican nominee could possibly
occupy the White House. On that front,
theres always plenty to talk about, and
plenty on which we can agree: this week
has just been more of the same. Whether
its Trump pointing to a black man in the
crowd at one of his rallies and saying,
Look at my African-American over here,
or stating that an American judge born in
Indiana is biased against Trump because of
his Mexican heritagethe judges parents
were born in Mexicohe has once again
raised the concerns and ire of right-minded

with maturity beyond their years, setting


aside their own disappointment at Bernies
loss to recognize and rejoice in the history
being mademy thoughts wandered, for
a moment, to the grandchildren I hope to
have in the years to come.
I imagined a conversation with my future grandchildren: I was telling them
about an evening that happened way back
in 2016, when their parents were still young
and just setting out on their lives as adults.
Last night, the boys thought I was smiling
about the strides women have made (and I
was, I was). But, I was also smiling at the
conversation I imagined, in which those
two future grandchildren just couldnt understand why it was such a big deal that a
woman had been nominatedand perhaps
electedas President.
Whats so unusual about that? one of
them was asking.
Nothing, I answered. Nothing at all.

people everywhere. Even the leaders of his


own party have expressed disgust at his accusations against the judge, noting that its
about as clear an example of bigotry and
racism as one can find.
Last night, though, the boys and I all
watched the news in accord. I think we
were all reminded (especially when the
boys saw me surreptitiously wiping a few
tears from my eyes) that this was a moment
not for division, but for celebration.
Whatever your political believers,
whomever your preferred candidate, what
was happening was a moment of historical
significance. Every little girl could now believe her parents assurances that she can
be whatever she imagines herself to be
when she grows upeven leader of the free
world. Every adult woman can let herself
hope, for a moment, that the many troubling gender equality issues that face and
sometimes divide uspay inequities, violence against women, ongoing attempts to
legislate a womans right to control choices
regarding her own bodymight now hear
a strong voice of support and understanding coming from the highest office in the
land.
As I watched the boys take in the momentous event playing out before usand,

Thrifty by Nature

o Aimless Mind

There are probably a lot of parents


out there who are proud when their children are successful and can afford all the
best things in life, and then go out and buy
them. I am proud that both my sons have
successful careers, but I am also proud that
they are both thrifty. I brought them up
on antique hunting, thrift store shopping,
and yard sale stopping. My youngest son,
I would happily go so far to say, loves to
scavenge for interesting finds. Both sons
love finding a good deal and will spend
hours browsing around the Farmers Market in Charlotte Hall and all the barn shops
in Hughesville. My youngest son and fianc are also savvy thrift store and yard sale
shoppers. I dont think there is a thrift store
or consignment shop they have missed in
most of Maryland. I am so proud. To me,
it is all part of re-using, recycling, and repurposing. Now, all of those ideas are even
bigger than ever.
When my sons were younger, I found
most all of their Scout uniforms at Vintage
Values and other thrift stores. I still have
a favorite pair of pajamas I found there 20
years ago. One of my favorite shirts was a
thrift store find. So you may pass me on
the street and take a double take, because
I might be wearing your old clothes. It
doesnt bother me I hate to go clothes
shopping in the stores. I especially loved
the higher end consignment shop, Colleens Dream in Leonardtown. I sure miss
that shop.
All of you know that I have been
purging everything from paperwork, to
drawers, to my sons things over the last
few years much of that going to local
thrift shops. There were items of my late
mothers and my husbands late mothers
that we have sent to other family homes or
sold. How much stuff do you need really.
When I watch a show set in a poor area

either here or in another country, I always


marvel at how little so many people have
and how some purposefully live with so
little. My father was like that and would
have been happy with a stack of books, a
chair outside, a cold Schlitz, and a bit of
Old Grand Dad. Throw in some grilled hot
dogs and a warmed can of beans and he
was in Heaven.
The last few years, I have been steadily dropping off items at Vintage Values
and Hooks and hangars, but I dont go in
to browse so much anymore. Im too afraid
I will want to bring something home and
wreck my purging crusade. Two Fridays
ago, my son Ryan called to say that he and
his two little boys were heading to Hooks
and Hangers in Charlotte Hall to look
around, so I met them up there. Finally I
was able to walk through the whole store. I
saw all sorts of great treasures, and found
a ceramic Studio 56 style house that was
perfect for my fairy garden. It was a rundown Italian villa. I showed it to my little
grandson Liam while my son was out in his
truck changing Carson. I said, Liam, will
you tell your Daddy that Grandma wants
this for her birthday? Will you remember
where it is? And he did. He walked my
son all the way back to it. Now its in my
fairy garden and it is perfect. I was also
pleasantly surprised at how orderly and
nice everything was kept. My biggest surprise came when I got to the opposite side
of the store. I found that there is another
shop called Rustic Restorations within
Hooks and Hangers that has lots and lots
of repurposed and shabby chicd furniture,
plus home dcor. They also sell Fusion
Mineral Paint which I have been dying to
try the colors are amazing and the price
is great. So, next time you drop some donations off, dont just leave, walk around with
the mind set to reuse, recycle, and repur-

Dent stated that he was born on December 21, 1856 in St. Marys County and
has always lived there. He volunteered to
relieve a class out of Charlotte Hall commanded by Capt. Henry Sothoron.
We were dispensed to fill up the vacancies in different companies Jonothan
Woodburn, Norman Burroughs, and myself
went into Capt. John Davidsons Company
because Richard Hill and Henry Spalding
from our County were in that company and
had been out for some time.
We were marched to White Plains, New
York and there we laid three months. My
tent and General Washingtons were in
sight of each otherwe frequently formed
for battle and many detachments sent down
to strengthen Col. Morgans Regiment
our flanking parties had frequent skirmishes with the enemy; from White Plains,
I was marched with many others to the Fort
at West Point to strengthen that post.
We left West Point and marched to
Poughkeepsie from thence to New Jersey.
There we went into winter quarters by
building huts which we commenced on the

day after Christmas day and finished ours


in 11 or 12 days. I done no more service
in the Maryland line except what I done at
this place and was discharged there with
the others of my countrymen who were in
the detachment with me.
I got home exactly twelve months having been out precisely one year. I was
constantly upon duty of some sort or other
during the year I was outI knew many
officers, but my memory has become so
much impaired I cannot recollect any more
of them.
Shortly after my return home, I volunteered under Lt. Benjamin Edwards and
marched to Llewellens Warehouse on the
Potomac to guard the shores and was out
two weeks. I then volunteered under Capt.
Mills, Lt. William Cartwright, and Henry
Swann, Ensign and was marched to the
lower part of St. Marys County to guard
the shores and was on that service two
months and took a severe spell of illness
which prevented my being at the Siege of
York as I had desired to do.
I did receive a discharge on my way
home, about one mile and a half from Camp
in New Jersey, I and my comrades met Maj.
Gen. Baron DeKalb who accosted us asking where are you going soldiers? I told
him we were going home and he asked if
we had been discharged. I gave him my
discharge to look at and while looking at it,
his horse threw his head down and caused
the discharge to be torn in two piecesit
has long since been lost or mislaid.

CHARLES SERABIAN, DEVOTED PROTECTOR


OF THE AMERICAN FLAG

You no doubt have observed the large


American Flag on the tall flagpole along
the north side of Routes 2/4 just north of
Solomons. Are you aware of the special
significance of the place-ment of this great
American symbol? This flag is known as
Charleys Flag in honor of Charles Serabian who devoted his life to his country,
his county, his community, his friends, and
even people he didnt know, but knew of
their need. Charley loved his god and loved
his American Flag. Among his many civic
feats, his greatest interest was in seeing
this symbol was protected from those who
would desecrate it for whatever reason. He
had a long history of lobbying Congress to
pass a law protecting it from such unpatriotic actions and could always be found
in the gallery of the House of Representa-

tives each and every time the legislature


brought a Bill to protect the Flag before the
full House. Unfortunately, Charley never
saw his dream come true before he passed
in2000.
Charley was a truly special person who
continually gave of himself. Even in death
he continues to provide support for others
through large financial gifts he bequeathed
to the American Legion, his parish at Our
Lady Star of the Sea in Solomons, and his
Brother Knights with the Knights of Columbus Council 9258 where the Knights
provide a Scholarship Fund in his honor
that supports four college students a year.
A Navy veteran of World War II, he was
described as a war hero during the many
eulogies given during his funeral service.
He never spoke of his war time experience
and seldom talked of his military
service.
Following the end of the War,
he took advantage of the new GI
Bill afforded the veterans and
earned a Business Degree from
the University of Maryland. He
later opened a restaurant in College Park and successfully managed this popular enterprise
for more than twenty years. He
sold his business in the 70s and
moved to a waterfront home in
Solomons and totally immersed

Finally, each July 4th, Charley opened

Project Linus will meet June 24
Project Linus is a national organization
of volunteers, known as blanketeers,
who provide new, handmade, washable
blankets to be given as gifts to seriously
ill and traumatized children, ages 0-18. It
is Project Linus policy to accept blankets
of all sizes, depending on local chapter

needs. All blanket styles are welcome,


including quilts, tied comforters, fleece
blankets, crocheted or knitted afghans,
and receiving blankets in child-friendly
colors. Always remember that blankets
must be homemade, washable, free of
pins, and come from smoke-free environments due to allergy reasons. St. Marys
County has a local chapter which is located at the Loffler Senior Activity Center
which normally meets the third Friday of
each month at 10 a.m. This month Project Linus will meet on June 24 at 10 a.m.
instead. Some blanketeers cannot attend
the monthly meetings but still participate
by dropping blankets off at Loffler Senior
Activity Center during the month so that
staff can give them to the coordinator
when the group meets. For more information or questions call 301-737-5670,
ext. 1658.
Cribbage Group Forming
The Garvey Senior Activity Center is
looking to form a group to play the card/
pegboard game of Cribbage. Interested
players should call 301-475-4200, ext.
*1050.
Tripoley
Tripoley has been a family favorite
card game for over 65 years. The object
of the game is to collect pennies through
a series of Michigan rummy, hearts and
poker. Newcomers and experienced players are welcome. Games will be played
at the Garvey Senior Activity Center on
Wednesdays, beginning June 8 at 1 p.m.
Bring your pennies. Sign up to play by
calling 301-475-4200, ext. *1050.
Midsummer Celebration on July 20
Celebrate the middle of summer at the
Loffler Senior Activity Center while partying with your grandkids! All of us can
be children at heart on this day by enjoying some of the best things in life like a
sundae bar from Sweet Frog, singing and
dancing with karaoke and dabbling in
arts and crafts. Everyone is required to
have an advance ticket. Childrens tickets
are free, cost is $3 per person for adults.
Tickets are limited to 100, so dont delay!
