Calvert Early Voting


Has Strong Turnout
By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer
Results from the first five days of early
voting in Calvert County have elections officials encouraged for a strong turnout for
the general election Nov. 8.
The turnout has been fantastic, said
Mary DePelteau, office specialist with the
Calvert County Board of Elections. The
first two days turnout was the strongest.
There were nearly 2,000 voters each day
on Oct. 27 and Oct. 28 when the polling
station at the elections board opened.
It was not long before the line to vote extended out of the building on at least one
occasion.
That first day there were 1,941 voters
who came out with slightly more 1,996
who came out on the second day, DePelteau said.
Turnout was also strong on the weekend,
she said. Voters had called in to confirm
that early voting was active during the
weekend even though it had been advertised as such beforehand.
They were really excited when we told
them we were open Saturday and Sunday,
DePelteau said.
Early voting had been gaining in popularity over the years, DePelteau said, but
this may be the strongest year so far for
voter turnout.
I dont remember [numbers] being this
high, she said of voters coming out to the
polls. Its great to see this kind of voter
turnout.

Primary voter turnout in Calvert this


year was low, she said, with only about 30
percent of registered voters coming out to
cast a ballot.
This years turnout, at least initially, had
officials hoping there would be at least a 70
percent voter turnout, DePelteau said.
Calvert had an 80 percent voter turnout
rate for the 2008 Presidential Election.
The third day of early voting saw 943
voters turnout, split between 413 Democrats, 374 Republicans and 156 for other
parties.
Day No. 4 had 351 Democrats turnout
compared to 316 Republicans and 131 from
other parties for a total of 798 voters, according to election board figures.
The fifth day had 678 Democrats turnout
compared to 599 Republicans and 222 voters from other parties for a total of 1,499
ballots cast.
The first day of voting had 943 Democrats show up compared to 762 Republicans and 236 of another political affiliation.
The second day there were 874 Democrats who showed up compared to 825
Republicans and 297 voters of other
affiliations.
There are 62,681 registered eligible voters in Calvert, DePelteau said, divided between 23,469 Democrats, 25,817 Republicans and 13,395 of other political parties.

Commissioners Payout More


Than $20,000 in Legal Fees
By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer
The Calvert Board of County Commissioners voted by a 4-to-0 margin Tuesday
to pay more than $20,000 in legal fees to
the estate of a deceased attorney who had
served as legal counsel to the countys
planning commission despite the fact that
procurement laws and regulations regarding how that attorney was paid were not
followed.
According to county documents presented at the Tuesday meeting, John Yacovelle, who had recently passed away,
had not remitted his billing for a period
from Dec. 2015 to September of this year.
County documents showed that Yacovelle
had continued to work for the countys
planning commission during that time
even though he had not been the official attorney for sometime.
The county received the bill from Yacovelle Oct. 6, county documents showed,
but there was no purchase order or blanket
purchase order appropriately filled out authorizing payment for Yacovelle.
In all Yacovelle was owed $19,170 for
fiscal 2016 and $400 for fiscal 2017, county
documents stated.

In a later interview County Attorney


John Norris said that Yacovelle had served
as attorney for the planning commission
since 2005, which was also the last time a
blanket purchase order was made out for
his payment as legal counsel.
Essentially, Norris confirmed, Yacovelle
had been getting paid by the county for his
services for about 10 years, without proper
purchase orders being filled out or county
procurement policies being followed.
It was not the best way to do things,
Norris said.
It was revealed Teusday that J. Mark
Willis, the relatively new director of Community Planning and Building, had found
the error and attempted to rectify it.
Commissioner President Evan Slaughenhoupt praised Willis for his oversight.
In the past six months [Willis tenure]
weve already seen improvements in your
department, Slaughenhoupt said.
No commissioners made mention of the
lengthy violation of county procurement
laws, only that Yacovelle would be missed.

Open Enrollment For Maryland


Health Connection has Begun

Enroll By Dec. 15 To Begin Coverage Jan. 1, 2017


Today is the first day for Marylanders
toenroll in health and dental coverage for
2017 through MarylandHealthConnection.gov.
Dec. 15 is the deadline to sign up for
coverage to begin Jan. 1, 2017. Jan. 31 is
the last day to enroll for 2017.Maryland
Health Connection is the only place for
Marylanders to access federal tax credits
and cost-sharing subsidies to lower the cost
of insurance and cushion the impact of any
rate increases. During the past two years,
Marylanders have received $325 million in
federal tax credits to offset out-of-pocket
costs. The average tax credit per household
was about $325 a month. And nine of 10
enrollees received financial support to offset some or all of their costs. In a survey
of more than 900 Maryland residentsthis
summer:
A majority of Marylanders (78%) said
they would be interested in visiting MHC
if they were subsidy-eligible.
Less than one-third (29%) of uninsured
were aware of subsidy eligibility.
Almost half of uninsured (44%) dont
know if they are subsidy-eligible.
A majority of uninsured (91%) would
be interested in visiting MHC if they were
subsidy-eligible.
The federal tax penalty for lacking
health coverage is $700 or more per person. You can avoid that penalty by getting
coverage, which provides benefits such
as checkups and routine screenings at no
additional cost.Individuals can apply at
MarylandHealthConnection.gov. The website has been redesigned based on consumer testing, with fewer, clearer entry points

and easier-to-understand information on


coverage, costs and benefits.A new app
makes it easier to shop and apply for coverage on a mobile device. The Enroll MHC
app is available free in the App Store (iOS)
and the Google Play Store (Android). Consumers can use the app to buy health and
dental coverage, view notices and upload
verification documents with the camera
on their mobile device. The app will also
indicate preliminary eligibility for federal
tax credits and cost-sharing for private
plans offered on the states health insurance
marketplace, as well as eligibility for Medicaid and the Maryland Childrens Health
Program (MCHP). Enrollment in those
programs is year-round.Marylanders
can find, free in-person help to enroll from
more than 1,000 trained experts around the
state. A new in-person help locator tool
on the website and the app makes it easier
than ever to find assistance. Consumer assistance workers have expanded evening
and weekend hours to better accommodate
consumer schedules.Consumers can also
call toll-free 1-855-642-8572 (TTY: 1-855642-8573) to reach the consumer support
center. It offers assistance in more than 200
languages, as well as TTY services for the
deaf and hard of hearing. The call center
will operate from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays
through Fridays and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturdays through Jan. 31, with extended
hours just prior to the Dec. 15 and Jan. 31
deadline days. More information is available at MarylandHealthConnection.gov.

Police Investigate
Death in St. Leonard
By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer

Calvert sheriffs detectives are investigating the death of a woman at Flag Harbor
in St. Leonard over the weekend.
Sheriffs deputies called to the scene
found the victim, Pamela Fell, 45, floating
under the pier; Fell lived on a large boat
which was docked at the first boat slip to
the left of pier there at the harbor, police
said.
Calvert Sheriff Mike Evans said, so far,
there appears to be no indications of foul
play in Fells death, though it remains an
open criminal investigation.
The
autopsy
should
eliminate
any other suspicion of foul play, Evans told The Calvert County Times.
Police were eventually alerted to the scene
after a friend of Fells had tried to reach
her via phone since that Thursday without
success; that same friend had contacted
the harbormaster and asked him to check
onFell.

He found a purse on the back deck of


Fells boat, police said, with the lights on
inside the cabin and the television on.
When he called out to Fell, he got no
response; eventually Fells phone was retrieved from her purse.
Fells friend went to the sheriffs office
to report her missing; the harbormaster
viewed surveillance footage and found that
Fell had fallen off the dock but there was no
further activity shown on the footage.
An autopsy is set to be performed at the
Office of the Medical Examiner in Baltimore, sheriffs officials stated.
The police are still seeking leads in the
case and anyone with any information
about Fell is asked to call the sheriffs office at 410-535-2800 ext. 2772.

CSM Professor Named to


Science Journal Editorial Board
Viterito Will Serve Global Publication
as an Executive Editor
A College of Southern Maryland professor has been named to the Journal of Environment Pollution and Climate Changes
editorial board.
Dr. Arthur Viterito, who has taught
geography at CSM since 2002, has been
named an executive editor of the newly
launched publication. He joins other editorial coordinators on the journals panel
from universities around the world, including institutions elsewhere in the United
States and in China, South Korea, Spain,
Italy and United Arab Emirates.
I am happy to render my support and
suggestions for the betterment of the journal as a vehicle for the dissemination of
scientific knowledge in the environmental
research community, Viterito said.
Environment Pollution and Climate
Change is an international, open-access
research journal that contains articles on
problems, associated risks, remediation
methods and techniques pertaining to air,
water, soil, noise, thermal, radioactive and
light pollutions, and climate change. The
peer-reviewed journal reports original and
novel research observations on the subjects
of environmental pollution and climate
change which contributes to the addition of
new knowledge in the field.
Since the journals open access does not
require a subscription, it is becoming in-

creasingly popular, making the audience


truly global, Viterito said.
This new position will give me many
opportunities to interact with other scholars in the field on a regular basis, he said.
It will help to keep me on the cutting edge
of my field, and that, in turn will help me be
more effective in the classroom. Both students and the college at large will benefit.
He is looking forward to the challenges
ahead and the opportunity to continuously learn. It forces one to be a committed
lifelong learner in their chosen field. It
will also force me to think of new ideas and
solutions to problems in the area of climate
change, as I will be called upon to provide
editorial materials such as reviews and critiques from time to time, he said.
Viterito previously has held positions at
the University of Pittsburgh and George
Washington University. He received his
Ph.D. in geography from the University
of Denver with specialties in climatology
and physical geography. He has published
research in the areas of radiational receipt
in mountainous environments, urban climatology and global climate change.
His work in urban climatology was cited
in the first report of the Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change. His publication,
The Correlation of Seismic Activity and
Recent Global Warming (Journal of Earth

Education

Science and Climatic Change, April 2016),


establishes the connection of increased
geothermal flux with warming of the global
climate since 1979.
Throughout his professional career,
Viterito has taught courses in the areas of
water resources, maps and mapping, environmental hazards, weather and climate,
environmental conservation, remote sensing, air photo interpretation, quantitative
methods, techniques of spatial analysis, climate and human ecology, geographic information systems, advanced climatology and
climatic change.

His research interest is in assessing the


natural and anthropogenic drivers of climate change.
Viterito is a member of the Association
of American Geographers, the International Association for Urban Climate and the
Maryland State Geographic Information
Committee.
He has agreed to work with the journals
editorial board for a year, but he said that
many times these types of appointments
can last indefinitely.

A Gen-Xers Perspective
Once youve been around long enough
to develop a generational identity, its common (because humans are curious) to ponder living life in a different era. Ive done
it, not because of a desire to escape reality
via Doc Browns DeLorean, but because
its fascinating to imagine navigating a past
or some futuristic, Jetsons existence (if my
mind can sufficiently expand to consider
the possibilities).
With four generations of my family still
on earth (two off my stern, me and one off
my bow), Im at the perfect moment for this
exercise: Ive acquired a decent database of
personal experiences, am aware of recent
history and am cognizant of the speed with
which the world is changing. I missed The
Roaring 20s, The Great Depression, Pearl
Harbor and the national euphoria that followed the defeat of the Axis Powers in
World War II experiences my grandparents, members of The Greatest Generation,
lived. My parents, Baby Boomers born in
the late-1940s, dealt with the fear of nuclear
war, Vietnam, Watergate and the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. But boy
did they get to enjoy the best music Elvis
Presley, James Brown, Bob Dylan, Chuck
Berry, The Beatles
and The Rolling
Stones.
Born in 1972,
Im a member of
Generation X, a
comparatively
small mass of humanity
experts
will tell you is
cynical and disaffected. We have
been consistently
lied to by politicians, lack a great
military accomplishment and will
witness the erosion of American
global dominance
(militarily and economically). We
wont do as well
as our parents
Boomers but will
be left to bear their
financial burden
while simultaneously coping with
the perceived entitlement of Millennials. Its enough
to feel like generation screwed.
But I dont. Gen-

eration X, while arguably not overtly special in any discernable way, is incredibly
unique. Change my date of birth? Never.
Heres why.
X is a generation of overlappers. We
remember televisions with antennas and
channel dials but were quick to embrace
the digital era and high-definition (HD)
technology. Our first calls were on landline telephones attached to cords; now we
are masters of smart phones. Weve seen
a bad guy defeated U.S.S.R. and become an antagonist again Russia. We
grew up driving stick shifts and are on
the cusp of self-driving cars. Segregation
was a defeated evil, not a reality. The first
high school paper we wrote was generated
on a typewriter; our last college paper was
drafted in Microsoft Word and emailed to
our professors at the completion of an online class.
But every generation has its before and
afters, its technological and social overlaps.
What makes Generation X unique is that it
straddles the Information Age and its revolution in human communication. Gen-Xers
came of age before the internet and have,
unlike most members of preceding generations, embraced its possibilities as adults.
Were fluent in text-speak, social media savants, proficient multi-taskers and capable
consumers of todays limitless data. But
we can still hold face-to-face conversations with other humans, survive in a world
without instant access to everything and
enjoy disconnecting from the grid.
Which leads to the obvious and longsimmering question: What does this dribble have to do with sports? Well, a lotI
think. Gen-Xerswe grew up without
ESPN, let alone ESPN2, ESPNews, ESPNU or ESPN Deportes. We mined our
stats from newspapers and encyclopedias
and learned about players by reading press
guides and the backs of baseball cards.
Following sports took time and dedication;
it takes but a few clicks now. The mystery
is mostly gone (not so good) but the growth
of sports into a pop culture phenomena is
undeniably super-cool.
Millennials and certainly Generation Z
sports fans probably feel sorry for my onetime plight. But they should be jealous. Im
about to toggle between The World Series
and Sunday Night Football both in primetime and in HD, of course. For them, this is
just how its always been; Im old enough to
know it hasnt and to appreciate the journey
to this amazing moment.
The point? These are extraordinary
times - and not just for sports fans. Dont
be convinced otherwise.

Board of Education Race


Dominates Calvert Local Ballot
By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer

As Calvert residents took to early voting


in apparently strong numbers last week, the
local ballot is filled mostly with choices for
school board.
Some are incumbents, others are running
for the first time and some are trying to regain
seats they lost.
Stephen C. Jones of St. Leonard is facing
off against Dawn C. Balinski of Lusby. Balinski served on the board from 2010 to2014.
Jones says that he wants to help restore
step increases for teachers that they have long
complained they have been denied for budgetary issues.

B
I
N
G
O

Im on board with getting teachers more


pay and restoring the steps they missed,
Jones told The Calvert County Times. We
cant afford a turnover in teachers like we had
last year.
The County Times ran a story earlier this
fall stating that many teachers in Calvert
had applied for interviews in neighboring
St. Marys County after hearing news that
leaders there had made their promised step
increases from prior budgets whole.
Jones said in speaking with teachers he
was concerned that there were morale problems in the system that needed to be solved.

We need to fix that so they can enjoy doing their jobs again, Jones said.
He also said it was important to delve into
the schools budget to trace every dollar to
how it aids the student.
We cant ask for more money from the
county commissioners if we cant explain
how its spent, Jones continued.
Balinski wants to get back onto the board
of education after losing a three-way, at-large
race back in 2014.
She said that particular year saw thenschools superintendent Jack Smiths management style laid bare, to include large
payouts and increases to his executive staff
that Balinski said was not done with the full
knowledge of the board.
And while current board member Tracy
McGuire argued that much of the controversy was unfounded because Smiths contract
allowed him to govern his executive team
as he saw fit, Balinski said it was done at a
time when teachers were told there was not
enough money in the budget for their pay
increases.
It was a lesson learned through fire,
Balinski said.
She wants to get her seat back so she can
push for smaller class sizes and invest in
more teachers, Balinski said.
She too wanted to reinstate step increases
for teachers to stop the flow of teachers out
of Calvert.
McGuire is running to keep her District
2 seat in a race with former educator and
schools administrator Nancy Highsmith.
McGuire said as a highly trained board
member she is fully invested in being a
productive board member.
Her main focus, she said, was to reduce the
achievement gap that continued to be a problem for at-risk students in Calvert schools
such as those in special education programs,
the free and reduced cost meals programs
and young black males.
One key element in the lower achievement
rates for those groups, she said, was their often spotty attendance.
They miss a lot of school, McGuire said,
adding that some are chronically absent, being away from school for 15 days or more.
Currently, Calvert schools policy has punitive measures for students who are chronically absent but there is nothing in those regulations to find ways to help those students get
the instruction they need, McGuire said.
I want to find ways to deliver instruction, she said.

Highsmith said she had spent 35 years with


Calvert schools either as a teacher or administrator and wanted to make students the focus of hers if elected to the board seat.
Students come first, Highsmith said.
And the board needs to be transparent with
the community.
She said that the school system has only
gotten maintenance of effort from the Board
of County Commissioners in the past two
years and that the relationship between the
commissioners and the school board may
have been damaged due to the controversy
over former superintendent Smiths administration and sudden departure in late 2013.
It was a shame, Highsmith said. All the
time they kept telling us theres no money [for
teacher pay increases.]
She wanted to help repair the relationship
with the county commissioners in order to
help facilitate getting teachers money they
said they were owed.
Teachers are due their steps, Highsmith
said. We want to get the steps back for them.
In the District 3 race incumbent Kelly McConkey is facing Erin Knowles in a bid to
keep his seat.
McConkey said he wants to continue
the work he has started with other board
members.
I love the job, McConkey said. Theres
still a lot of work to be done.
I want to continue fighting for staff,
support staff and administrators to get
theirraises.
McConkey said he also wanted to see the
new Northern High School finished sometime in his tenure.
Erin Knowles, like many of the other candidates, wanted to ensure that teachers got pay
raises that had been promised them but she
was also concerned with the kind of education children were getting in Calvertschools.
Im concerned with where the standard
of education is going, Knowles said. I want
to reduce testing and bring teacher morale
backup.
Knowles said she wanted to examine what
she believed was poor teacher morale and
find ways to turn it around.
We have to find ways to stop our teachers
leaving for other jurisdictions, Knowlessaid.

Bi-County Senior Pool Tournament


at Schweinhaut Senior Center

On Friday, October 28, 2016, seven Calvert County seniors went to Schweinhaut
Senior Center to compete in a Bi-County
County Tournament against Montgomery
County. This event is an opportunity for
the seniors to practice for the Maryland Senior Olympics. At this tournament, the seniors play ball-in-hand, which is the game
they will play during the Maryland Senior
Olympics in May. This tournament was
also held at the location of the Maryland
Senior Olympics, so it gave Calvert County
seniors an opportunity to practice on the
Olympics game tables.
Unlike the Maryland Senior Olympics,
all age groups competed together. There
were 1st- 3rd place trophies and a Tourna-

ment Trophy. The Calvert County Office


on Aging is proud to announce that we
received the Tournament Trophy this year.
The Tournament Trophy has been placed in
the Calvert Pines Senior Center and it will
remain there until next years Fall Tournament. In addition to receiving the Tournament Trophy, the top two players were from
Calvert County. Bryant Parker received the
2nd place trophy and Billy Sutton received
the 1st place trophy. Other tournament
players included: Ronny Samuels, John
Yodie, Gregory Buckingham, Freddie Taylor, and Carroll Holland.
