ican musicals. A recluse New Yorker listening

to a recording of a musical comedy

is transported into the musical. The consequent

plot highlights mistaken identities,

dream sequence, an absent minded dowager,

gangsters, and millionaires all set to toe

tapping music.

Ah, the lovely era of the twenties…

the energetic and bubbly music, witty and

sweet lyrics, mixed in with unforgettable

harmless and politically incorrect stereotypes

of: the self-absorbed leading lady, the

perennially positive leading man, the Latin

lothario, intellectually challenged beautiful

bombshell, gangster types, and an unflappable

English butler.

The cast includes Gail Aveson, Joey

Bridges, Eugenie Drayton, Patrick Fee,

Marcia Gilliam, Bill Gross, Debbie Harmon,

Malley Hester, Maddie Megahan,

Jose Monterroza, Cavin Moore, Keith Orgain,

Lisa Roth, Mike Sousa, John Swann,

Karen Twigg, Joe Tyler, and Art Wolfe.

The production crew consists of Debbie

Harmon as music director, Steve

Clyburn as producer, Jacob Porch on piano,

percussion by Shelby Clendaniel and Ron

Demby on reeds. Sound design by Patrick

Fee, sound & light tech by Tom Gross and

Jonathan Twigg, props by Theodora Daniel.

Performances are at the Oxford Community

Della Andrew, Nancy’s mother, was an

early director of Easton Day Care and has

been both a Sunday School teacher at St.

Marks and a leader of the Busy Beavers 4H

Club for over 30 years.

While majoring in government and

politics at the University of Maryland College

Park, Nancy interned in the office of

Maryland Senator Paul Sarbanes during the

Clinton administration. She also volunteered

with DC Cares, a clearinghouse for a

variety of non-profits. After moving back

to Talbot County, she volunteered with

Habitat for Humanity Talbot County,

worked for Character Counts and then became

director of Talbot Mentors. After

leaving Talbot Mentors to become deputy

director of the local Habitat affiliate, she

continued mentoring until her mentee graduated

from high school. Of her Talbot Mentors

experience, she says, “It was very

special to be entrusted by the families to be

part of their children’s lives. I still see a lot

of the young people that I got to know and

I value those relationships.”

Her position at Habitat for Humanity

Choptank gave her “an opportunity to become

part of the community in a different

way. Through Talbot Mentors I saw how

some families were living and their struggles

to find affordable housing.” The first

dedication (the ceremony in which the new

homeowner receives the keys to the new

house) that Nancy participated in was also

very special, as the Habitat family was one

she had known through Talbot Mentors.

How does Habitat for Humanity

Choptank help? Nancy points out, “Every

day there are families in the community

who live in substandard housing. These are

working families.” Applicants’ housing

may be in disrepair, unsafe, overcrowded,

insect or rodent infested or just too expensive,

often costing 40-50% of the household’s

income. “We serve families in a very

specific income range, 35-55% of the area

median income. These families can’t qualify

for a mortgage on their own and are

often first-generation homebuyers.”

Nancy wants to correct the misperception

that Habitat “gives away” houses. She

emphasizes, “We’re giving our partner

families an extraordinary opportunity to

purchase a home at zero percent interest.

(continued on page 19)


(continued from page 18)

But our families work very hard.” Habitat

owners must meet specific criteria: they

must contribute 300-400 hours of sweat equity

(depending on family size), save $4000

for closing costs, attend homeowners’ education

classes and have paid off all their

debt.

Habitat owner Ashlie Elliott bought

her home in 2009. She said, “When I

started working on my home, I felt such

pride. I started learning how to do things I

never would have thought I could do. Before

I began my Habitat journey, I didn’t

even know how to flip a breaker! The education

classes helped me to have more

faith in myself and become more independent.

The process also gave me a sense

of ownership and personal connection with

my home.” Having a home of their own

gave her son, who has Asperger’s Syndrome,

the stability he needed. Because of

achieving this goal, Ashlie went back to

college to study Elementary Education and

achieved personal health goals. “My Habitat

experience has taught me that I can be a

leader.... I tell families that it is important

for them to ‘give back’ to the community

that is giving so much to them.”

Volunteers at Habitat form bonds with

other volunteers and the participating families.

“For many of our construction volunteer

crews, some of those volunteers have

been volunteering for 5, 10, 15 years. It’s

really camaraderie,” says Nancy. “The

other ‘payback’ people get is coming to the

house dedication. That’s the time when our

supporters get to see all the pieces coming

together as the partner family moves into

their new home.”

For those wishing to volunteer, there

are many other ways to do so. Besides construction,

volunteers can help in the office

or with special fundraising events, serve on

a committee, or help at the ReStore, which

keeps materials out of the landfill and helps

make home improvement or building materials

available at a fraction of the retail

cost.

Habitat for Humanity Choptank serves

Talbot and Dorchester counties. As Nancy

says, “It empowers people to help themselves.”

DNR Welcomes

Public Input on

Chesapeake

Forest Hunting

Areas

Comment Deadline August 11

The Maryland Department of Natural

Resources (DNR) Forest Service invites the

public to share their thoughts on the proposed

changes to hunting areas on 7,812

acres of Chesapeake Forests, located on the

State’s lower Eastern Shore, for the 2012-

2013 hunting season.

The public’s input will help to ensure

that DNR’s Forest Service has not overlooked

any important considerations regarding

the layout of hunting areas within

this forestland,” said Director Steve Koehn.

The purpose of this proposal is to

make adjustments to several current tract

designations to better accommodate and

serve both public hunting and leased hunting

opportunities. The public areas allow all

licensed hunters to take advantage of the

sport, while the leased areas are rented out

to a variety of groups, clubs and organizations.

DNR is gathering the public’s input

before a decision will be made, the final

step in the three-step review process. The

first step consisted of an internal review by

a team of resource professionals from the

Wildlife and Heritage, Fisheries, Forest,

and Park Services, and Land Acquisition &

Planning. The second step had an appointed

citizen’s advisory committee review the

proposals. After the public comment period,

the forest manager will review the

comments and make any final adjustments

to the plan as necessary.

Each proposal consists of a brief summary,

individual tract maps and a vicinity

map. All comments should be as specific as

possible ─ those that are too general or

Blackwater

National Wildlife

Refuge Seeks

Volunteers

Do you love wildlife and wild places?

Are you looking to make a difference in

your community? Do you like learning new

skills and sharing your talents? If so, then

Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge

(NWR) can use your help! Volunteers are

needed to assist with a variety of programs,

including staffing the Visitor Center, assisting

with special events, gardening, leading

interpretive and educational programs,

assisting with carpentry projects, and much

more.

At Blackwater National Wildlife

Refuge, volunteers play a critical role in

helping the refuge fulfill its mission. Over

180,000 visitors from all over the world

visit Blackwater NWR each year to view

wildlife, hike trails, paddle waterways,

enjoy the scenic landscapes, and more. Established

in 1933 as a refuge for migratory

birds, Blackwater NWR is a part of the

largest wetland complex in the Chesapeake

Bay system. The refuge has one of the

highest concentrations of nesting bald eagles

on the Atlantic coast, and is home to

the largest protected population of endangered

Delmarva Peninsula fox squirrels.

With over 28,000 acres of rich tidal marsh,

mixed hardwood and loblolly pine forest,

managed freshwater wetlands and several

hundred acres of cropland, Blackwater

NWR’s varied habitats support a diversity

of wildlife. If you value these magnificent

natural resources, like meeting new people,

and enjoy sharing your talents, consider

volunteering at Blackwater NWR.

A volunteer workshop will be held on

Saturday, August 4th from 8:30 a.m. until

4:00 p.m. to update new and seasoned volunteers

on current refuge projects. Come

learn what the refuge is doing to manage

habitat for wildlife and improve visitor

services, and how you can help. The workshop

will include a tour of the Visitor Center,

and updates as to its completion. This

training session is open to current volunteers

as well as any member of the public

interested in becoming a Refuge volunteer.

On Thursday, August 9th, from 9:00

a.m. to 12:00 p.m., another training session

will be held to introduce new volunteers to

the Volunteer Program at Blackwater

NWR. Interested participants will learn

about the fundamentals of volunteering at

Baywater Animal

Rescue Awarded Feline

Spay/Neuter Grant

Baywater Animal Rescue has been

awarded a $4500 grant from the Blueberry

Hill AGM Foundation in Virginia. “We’re

so excited to receive this grant and have already

started spaying and neutering the cats

in our community who need help,” states

Suzette Stitely, executive director. “Being

in one of the poorest communities and an

area that does not have cat control ordinances,

we’re over-run with stray and free

roaming cats here,” adds Stitely. “Couple

that with families who can not afford

spay/neuter services, well, you can imagine

our problem.” Its also the Foundaton’s

hope to send three additional checks for a

total of $18,000. “Spay/neuter is so critical

to our cat overpopulation problem and

our rescue doesn’t have the money to help

the public directly,” continues Stitely.

“Now, anyone who needs financial assistance

to get their pet fixed just needs to give

us a call.” Baywater Animal Rescue staff

can be reached at 410-228-3090 or

info@baywateranimalrescue.org. Cats and

kittens for adoption can be visited at 4930

CBMM’s

15th Annual

Charity Boat

Auction is Sept. 1

Buy an affordable boat and support a

good cause at the annual Charity Boat Auction

held on Saturday, September 1 at the

Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum

(CBMM) in St. Michaels. The live auction

begins at 1pm along the museum’s waterfront

campus, with all the proceeds benefiting

the children and adults served by

CBMM.

For 15 years, Labor Day weekend has

meant great deals on boats to boating aficionados

and first-time boat buyers. This

year more than 80 boats––ranging in size

and performance from sailing dinghies to

cabin cruisers and everything in between,

will be auctioned off to the highest bidders

until all boats are sold. Beer and barbeque

will also be on sale at this lively event.

CBMM’s Boat Donations Program

Manager Lad Mills takes donations and resells

boats throughout the year, holding

aside some of his inventory for the annual

auction. Mills travels up and down the east

coast working with boat owners and potential

buyers wishing to support the museum

through boat donations and sales. “The revenue

generated by the auction goes directly

to help the museum do work like maintaining

its fleet of historic vessels,” says Mills.

“Let us take an unused or unwanted boat

off your hands, and you can receive a nice

tax deduction. Each donated boat helps the

museum do great things for the people we

serve.”

Returning to the auction this year is a

flea market-style tag sale, to be held on the

Fogg’s Cove side of the CBMM campus

from 10am to 1pm. Visitors will be able to

purchase a variety of boating gear, including

ground tackle, electrical equipment,

hardware, rope or chain, ladders, fishing

tackle, motors, and more. A selection of the

boats to be auctioned by the museum can

be viewed by following the “Donate or Buy

a Boat” link at www.cbmm.org. Boat sales

are on-going throughout the year, with all

auction boats subject to sale prior to the

auction. The vessels will also be available

for inspection at the museum several days

prior to the auction.

Advance bids can be called in to 410-

The Oxford Business Association

has sponsored a Moon Bounce for the kids,

and the Masthead at Pier Street will be providing

face painting as well as a game.

Station Oxford’s own Coast Guard

crew will be hosting a variety of games as

well, and have placed a challenge to other

groups for tug of war. They will also be

providing tours of the Coast Guard boat

that will be on display in the Park for the

day. The Oxford Vol. Fire Department will

be cooking, which is always a sure bet!

Red light therapy is a safe and natural process that requires no

needles, surgery or lasers. It has many benefits to the skin by

naturally slowing down the aging process and improving skin

tone, which leads to remodeling of the collagen within the dermis.

The remodeled collagen fills in wrinkles and sagging, for overall

skin tightening. Key benefits include:

Promotes collagen production for firmer, younger looking skin

Smooth and reduces fine lines and wrinkles

Reduces the appearance of scars and stretch marks

Increases moisture retention

Reduces pore size

Increases oxygenation and restoration of skin’s natural cellular activity,

which keeps skin renewed and fresh.

Tides in Farm-

Home to

Miniature Horses

By Bonna L.

Nelson

On a recent hazy

summer day we took

our 2 ½ year old

granddaughter, Isabella,

to meet Darius

Riley and his miniature

horses at Tides

In Farm in Cambridge.

Riley greeted

us in front of a big red barn. After opening

a few metal gates he took us behind the

barn through pastures into a fenced barnyard

where five tiny horses were grazing.

Two stallions, Dillion and Boots, were separately

corralled a bit further away.

Our Isabella and Gypsy Bell, Riley’s

newborn miniature horse, were about the

same height, 24 inches. Because Gypsy

Bell was her size, Isabella had no fear. The

“kids” immediately became close pals. Our

“Bella” petted Gypsy Bell and fed her some

hay. They talked quietly, the way only babies

and animals can. Adorable Gypsy Bell,

a beautiful yellow-gold Palomino with a

white mane and tail, weighed just 20

pounds at birth.

The American Miniature Horse Association

and his horses are registered, “promotes

the breeding, use and perpetuation of a

standard of equine excellence in miniature.”

According to the AMHA adult

miniature horses weigh between 150 and

250 pounds and attain 34 inches at the withers

horses were used in coal mines in Wales

mane. Even chestnut-colored Blaze, Gypsy

Belle’s mama, just kept on munching hay

as we shuffled around the pen to pet the

herd.

Riley fell in love with the miniature

horses as soon as he saw them. His wife

wanted to buy a cow but he just couldn’t resist

the horses he saw when cow shopping.

And he said couldn’t just buy one, like potato

chips, he needed more. He now has a

herd of seven.

Over the nine years that Riley has been

in the registered miniature horse business

he has learned how to raise and breed them.

He displays them in horse shows in

Delaware and New York where they have

won prizes. He tethers them to a stagecoach

for parades, exhibits them at festivals such

as the Beckwith Methodist Church Apple

Festival in the fall, and makes birthday parties

and other celebrations quite special

with his miniatures.

Mr. and Mrs. Riley are both nurses of

great faith who raised four adopted special

needs children. The children, like their parents,

enjoyed caring for the miniatures

when growing up. The family has taken the

horses to nursing homes and schools to entertain

the residents and students producing

many smiles and much petting of the tiny,

four-hoofed wonders.

The Rileys go to an auction house in

Pennsylvania in May and October to buy,

sell and swap horses. They believe it is important

to rotate their stock.

The Easton High School Class of 1992 will be holding its 20th Class Reunion on

Saturday, August 11th from 6 to 10 p.m., at the Easton Club in Easton, Maryland.

Class members can join the Facebook page (Class of 1992-Reunion Details) or

The horses trot in and out of the barn

of their own free will year round. Riley

feeds them hay, grains, vitamins, wet beet

pulp and always keeps a salt lick and water

available. The horses need the salt and

water to replace what they lose sweating. A

nearby neighbor, Yea Yea Benjamin, taught

them how to care for the horses and drive

them behind their old west stagecoach.

The stallions were curious about us so

we stopped by to give them some attention

too. The stallions share Tides In Farm with

the mares, geldings, 7 cats, 3 dogs and the

Riley family. The Rileys invite you to their

farm to get to know their horses and to fall

Up to $25,000 Available for Horse Industry Grants

Applications Accepted from August 1 to October 1

The Maryland Horse Industry Board

(MHIB) will be accepting grant applications

for non-profit research, educational

and promotional equine activities, beginning

August 1. The board intends to award

up to $25,000 in grants that support or develop

new opportunities for Maryland’s

horse industry. Applications must be received

by October 1, 2012.

The horse industry is a critical component

of Maryland’s economy. There are

more than 79,000 horses in Maryland, and

more than 28,000 citizens are employed in

the equine industry,” said Agriculture Secretary

Buddy Hance. “The Maryland Horse

Industry Board works very hard to stimu-

late growth and opportunity in Maryland’s

equestrian community. This grant program

is one way it helps spur needed innovation

and encourage those most committed to the

industry.”

Funding for the MHIB and its grants

come from The Maryland Feed Fund,

which collects $6 on every ton of horse

feed sold in Maryland. It is an effective

model for how industry groups can help

themselves, without relying on taxpayer

dollars. Since the Fund was established in

2002, MHIB has awarded more than

$200,000 in grants to nearly 200 projects

throughout Maryland.

grants include non-profit organizations,

clubs and associations, businesses, farms

and stables, government entities, schools

and educational institutions. Projects will

be evaluated for their value to the industry,

degree of industry promotion, size and

scope of activity, financial need, potential

for matching funds, benefits and quality of

the written presentation. The Board recommends

that grant requests not exceed

$3,000, which was the size of the largest

grant awarded last year. The average grant

amount is about $1,200.

Grant recipients will be announced on

or before December 1. Funding will be

available after January 1, 2013. Projects

must be completed by June 30, 2013. For

guidelines, see:

MDA is Offering

Free Grain and

Forage Testing to

Maryland Farmers

Farmers Urged to Check

Crop Insurance before

Chopping Corn

With reports of drought like conditions

coming in from farmers, the Maryland Department

of Agriculture (MDA) is encouraging

all farmers that use fertilizers

containing nitrate on their corn and sudansorghum

grasses, or who are concerned that

the corn grain may have mold to work

closely with their county extension agents

before feeding it to their animals. MDA is

offering testing for aflatoxins, nitrates and

prussic acid, which may be present in grain

and forage. These compounds, which can

sicken or be deadly to livestock, or even affect

pregnancies, are often present in dry

weather conditions.

“This summer’s lack of rainfall has

left many areas of the State with rainfall

and soil moisture deficits that are impacting

agricultural crops significantly,” said

Agriculture Secretary Buddy Hance. “I encourage

farmers to contact their crop insurance

agent to understand claim filing

requirements and to take advantage of

MDA’s free testing service for grain that

may be affected by drought-related toxins.”

Free Grain/Forage Testing for Drought-

Affected Crops

The Maryland Department of Agriculture’s

State Chemist Section is offering free

testing through the University of Maryland

Extension Offices. A sample information

sheet can be found on the MDA web site as

to the amount, storage and how to obtain a

representative sample. To find a local extension

office, visit

www.extension.umd.edu. For grain sampling

instructions and a submission form,

log onto

www.mda.maryland.gov/pdf/silage_sampling.pdf.

Commercial Feeds

In addition to the above the State

Chemist Section Inspections staff will be

increasing its surveillance of susceptible

commercial feeds for aflatoxin.

Nonprofit Organization Feeds Eastern Shore Pets in Need

Pet Pantries, New Maryland Nonprofit, Works to Fill High

Demand for Pet Food for the General Public

Pet Pantries, a new Maryland nonprofit

corporation, recently formed to support

pets in need on the Eastern Shore. The

organization’s mission is to keep the pet

food pantries of Baywater Animal Rescue,

Caroline Humane, and Talbot Humane

filled year round.

Pet Pantries is the only independent

SHORECRETE

COATINGS LLC

nonprofit with 501 c 3 pending on Maryland’s

Eastern Shore assisting multiple Humane

pet food pantries.

“We founded Pet Pantries after reading

a heart-wrenching front-page story last

fall about Dorchester Humane having to

turn away owners in need of food for their

pets,” says Pet Pantries President Barbara

7 S. Washington Street, Easton, Maryland

Mulready. “There is such a high demand

for pet food in this area and we exist because

the community needs us. Our goal is

to keep pets out of the shelters and in their

homes. When people come to Humanes’

pantries asking for food, that’s where our

supplies come in.”

Humane organizations typically have

two separate food supplies: one to feed the

Humane’s pets internally and one to provide

food for the public. Pet Pantries works

to stock the public food pantry, serving pet

owners who have fallen on hard times during

challenging economical times.

“We have over 200 people using our

Pet Food Pantry and gave out 18,000

pounds of food last year,” says Suzette

Stitely, executive director of Baywater Animal

Rescue (formerly Dorchester Humane

Society). “There's no doubt in my mind that

without this service, many pets would go

hungry. We see many people who really

have to depend on us to feed their pets.”

Similar to food pantries for humans,

Pet Pantries accepts donations and pet food

through events, food drives, and community

efforts combined. The organization has

held pet food drives in local schools, fitness

centers, retirement centers, and local businesses.

“We have been overwhelmed and

humbled by the tremendous support we

have received from the community, remarks

Mulready. “From students and businesses

organizing pet food drives to

dedicated individuals going the extra mile

to pick up donations, we are extremely

thankful to all of our volunteers and supporters.”

Since its establishment in January

2012, Pet Pantries has been highly successful,

collecting 8,000 lbs. of cat and dog

food to date. Pet Pantries will be launching

several new fundraising initiatives in the

fall.

“We are the voice of the pets that cannot

ask for help,” Mulready says. “We are

always seeking support from the community

and invite the public to visit our new

website to learn how they can get involved.”

Synthetic Drug K2

Banned,

K4 Already on the

Market

Just when parents got used to hearing

about the synthetic drug K2 or 'incense' and

how it's dangerous and being banned in

most states ... now attention is on another

version called K4. K4, like K2/Spice, contains

lab-produced cannabinoids. It makes

kids high, and the word is out this is the

new designer drug. Kids are flocking to it

because it is legally sold in smoke shops,

head shops and even some convenience

stores. While the smoke shops require that

customers be over 18 to purchase cigarettes

and incense, there is no age limit to purchasing

the K4 in a head shop or convenience

store. Kids are able to walk into these

stores and purchase it, as easily as they can

a candy bar or a soda. The sad part of this

is, that K4 is not being used as incense but

rather they are smoking it.

When K4 is smoked as a joint or put

in a pipe, it mimics a very bad trip. It makes

the kids super high and they are overdosing

on it. Kids are having seizures and vomiting.

This product pushes the heart rate up

to 200 beats a minute which is the prime

number for a heart attack. This is becoming

a very large problem in many local

areas as well as around the country.

According to Talbot Partnership for

Alcohol & Other Drug Abuse Prevention

Director Gary Pearce, “We are very concerned

with these new drugs coming into

the market faster that authorities can regulate

them. They present the same and in

many cases greater dangers in terms of addiction

and other health dangers.”

As with any drug use, experts say parents

should watch for changes in their children's

behavior.

For further information on K4 or additional

information on substance abuse in

our community, please call Talbot Partnership

at 410-819-8067.

Teen Courts Begin

14th Year in

Talbot County

Teen Courts in Talbot County will

begin their 14th year of service to the community

under the direction of Bob Coleman,

Teen Court Coordinator, with their

opening court session scheduled on August

27.

Talbot County’s Teen Court program

addresses the high risk of problematic behavior

among county youth. The program

provides early diversion for youth with

first-time, minor offenses, often alcohol

and tobacco violations. Teen Court provides

consequences to reinforce the fact

that negative behavior will not be tolerated.

It provides opportunities for pro-social activities

and social restitution in the community

to steer youth away from the streets

and delinquent activity, and it provides referrals

to services to address substance

abuse as well as mental health or educational

needs.

Teen Courts are staffed by youth volunteers

from Easton, Sts. Peter & Paul, and

St. Michaels High Schools who serve in

various capacities within the program,

trained and acting in the roles of jurors,

lawyers, bailiffs, clerks and judges. Most

teen courts are sentencing courts in which

the offender has already admitted guilt or

pled no contest.

The Talbot County Teen Court operates

much like a traditional court, holding

hearings before a judge and jury with the

jury deliberating to determine an appropriate

disposition. Court is held in the Talbot

County Courthouse.

Often, sentences will involve the defendant's

making restitution to someone

harmed or inconvenienced by their actions,

or creating an informational awareness

project about health, safety, respect, or another

topic relevant to the offense. One of

the more common sentences is community

service. In many jury-based programs it is

mandatory that the offender serve on a future

Teen Court jury. In some cases, educational

workshops are required as part of the

sentence, usually in cases involving alcohol

or drug charges.

Initial funding for Teen Court was provided

by The State of Maryland, through a

grant from the Governor’s Office of Crime

Control and Prevention. Unfortunately this

30104 Dover Road, Easton, Maryland � esn@goeaston.net

though the alcohol industry claims it is

marketing alcopops to young adults, ages

Credit Cards Now Accepted

21-27, far more teens than adults are aware

of the advertising and commercials.

The industry has successfully managed to have alcopops grouped

with beer instead of liquor. That opens the door to easier advertising as the

liquor industry is able to use television to place its logos, colors, and brand

names in front of millions of viewers, including teens. In addition, Alcopops

are sold in stores licensed to sell beer and wine products such as

convenience stores and grocery stores, as opposed to just liquor outlets.

According to Talbot Partnership for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse

Prevention, these drinks, with cool colors and names to match such as

Twisted Tea, Doc Otis Hard Lemon, Mike's Hard Lemonade, Rick's

Spiked Mandarin Lime, Smirnoff Ice, Skyy Blue, Captain Morgan Gold,

Stolichnaya Citrona, and Bacardi Silver - are a soft entry to the hard world

of alcohol. They point out that the most important thing for parents to remember

is simply this: Alcopop drinks are alcoholic drinks, and teens that

drink them face the same problems as teens who drink beer, whiskey or

wine, including alcoholism, liver disease (hepatitis, cirrhosis), cardiac

problems and brain impairment.

Most people who are aware of alcopops mistakenly believe they

aren’t as strong as other forms of alcohol. Actually, a 12-ounce alcopop,

a 12-ounce mug of beer, a cocktail with 1.5 ounces of spirits, and a 5ounce

glass of wine have the same amount of alcohol (from 5-7%) and

cause the same effects. There has been a growth in this country in binge

drinking (defined as downing five or more drinks on the same occasion at

least once in the last 30 days) and alcopops is seen as one of the factors

causing this. Many people, especially teens, don’t like the bitter taste of

most alcoholic drinks and will turn to the sweet flavor of alcopops instead.

The sugary taste often entices people to drink - and keep drinking, since

they seem to go down so smoothly.

For further information on Alcopops or additional information on

substance abuse in our community, please call Talbot Partnership at 410-

819-8067.

continued from page 36 Teen Courts

grant expired December 31, 2009. Talbot Partnership, which serves as the

fiscal agent for Teen Court, is looking to find individuals, local businesses,

community foundations, service organizations, and the faith community

to assist with keeping this important program in place. If you are interested

in supporting Teen Court, please contact Talbot Partnership at 410-

819-8067 or info@talbotpartnership.org.

Teen Court provides training to 60-70 student volunteers on the judicial

system and serves approximately 40-60 first time offenders per year.

The program has a very successful track record with a recidivism rate of

less than 10%.

Young Father’s Program Helps Dad Support Their Children

With the recent downturn of the economy,

fathers across the nation, as well as

locally in Talbot County, have faced difficult

times making ends meet for their families.

This is especially true in situations

where fathers owe child support and are unemployed.

An innovative program through

the Child Support Program of the Talbot

County Department of Social Services

(DSS) is helping fathers meet their obligations

to their children – both emotionally

and financially. In Fiscal Year 2011, 63 fathers

were enrolled in the Young Father’s

Program, and as a result, the program recognized

the success of 61 job placements

through the Department’s Non-Custodial

Employment Program (NPEP).

For Brent Kinnamon, age 49 of Cam-

bridge, the Young Father’s Program offered

him hope after being laid off from his work

as a chef four times in one year. Kinnamon

is father to two children, ages two and five,

and is estranged from the children’s mother.

He took parenting classes in conjunction

with the Department’s Young Father’s Program

and eventually obtained legal custody

of his two children as well as has worked

for the last year for a local physician office.

He is working toward his associate degree

in computers and business and hopes to remain

in the medical field. He states, “People

help you if they see you helping

yourself. This program has really allowed

me to be independent and to show my children

a good life. I am hopeful again.”

Vincent Bratcher, age 44 of Easton,

38

experienced a series of unplanned events,

including unemployment and a separation

from his wife. After falling behind in child

support, he was incarcerated. Bratcher,

who’s own father was in and out of his life

as a child, never learned how to be a good

father, so when the chips were down, he

didn’t know where to turn. He comments,

“I took my anger out on my children about

my own lack of a father figure in my life. I

resented that my father wasn’t there for me

and that I wasn’t taught how to be a good

father.”

Things changed for Bratcher while in

the Talbot County Corrections Center. In

addition to learning about the Talbot

County Young Father’s Program, he partic-

(continued on page 39)


(continued from page 38)

Young Father’s Program

ipated in the Corrections Center’s “Inside

Out Dad Program” for incarcerated fathers.

While in the Corrections Center, Bratcher

discovered he needed to get eye glasses.

The Department of Social Services Young

Father’s Program was able to buy him the

glasses he needed. Bratcher eventually got

a job at a restaurant through the Corrections

Center’s Work Release Program and is currently

paying off his child support arrearage

through the State of Maryland’s

Payment Incentive Plan. Today, Bratcher is

out of jail and is working hard to be a better

man. “The Fatherhood Program is an

excellent program. I learned how to be a

better father to my children.”

Bratcher especially appreciated the

positive reinforcement he got through the

program, including certificates of completion.

He adds, “Men need support in our

community. I am hoping we can develop a

network to help men in the community connect

to the help they need.”

For James Carter, age 42 of Easton,

who was the Department of Social Services

“2010 Father of the Year,” the story is a

similar one. Although once a chef and

restaurant owner, Carter dealt with his

stressful lifestyle with the help of alcohol

and drugs. After a recent relapse with his

addictions, he was incarcerated in the Talbot

County Corrections Center and signed

up for the “Inside Out Dads Program.”

Like Vincent Bratcher, Carter found

the program materials to be life changing.

As a father of seven children, ages four to

26 years old, he uses the Program’s One-

Minute Father exercise, changing how he

deals with discipline. In addition, Carter

came to realize the importance of his financial

contribution to his children. He

comments, “I used to think of child support

for my children as a negative. I even quit a

job to avoid paying child support. Now I realize

it’s about being responsible for your

children and supporting them.”

Carter is now a house manager in the

Fresh Start Program, a drug and alcohol recovery

program in Talbot County, and is

helping to organize the Fresh Start Basketball

Tournament. He is employed at a

restaurant and recently became a Peer Specialist

at the Talbot County Health Department,

mentoring kids about drugs.

Talbot County’s Young Father's/NPEP

Coordinator Emily Joiner comments, “This

program is multi-dimensional. Not only

are we helping dads to remove barriers in

their lives, but we are providing them with

focus of the NPEP Program is for parents

to become gainfully employed in order to

be financially independent, support their

children, and become good role models for

the future generation.”

St. Michael’s Art

League Schedules

Labor Day Exhibit

If you are looking for a quiet oasis

amid your Labor Day activities this year,

look under the tent at St. Luke’s Church in

St. Michaels. Let the St. Michael’s Art

League soothe your soul with an inspiring

collection of members’ artwork. This fifteen-year-plus

exhibit showcases the work

of some of its 130 members and is free to

the public.

Before the fireworks, before the noisy

restaurants, relax among displays of oils,

watercolors and pastels, charcoal, acrylics,

photography, and other creative media.

You’ll find restful garden scenes and townscapes,

along with peaceful eastern shore

waterviews of boats, wildfowl and quiet

harbors.

Typical of the welcome you’ve come

to expect in the town of St. Michael’s, the

art league members, too, will make you feel

at home. Participating artists plan to attend

the exhibit and will be happy to discuss

their work with you.

St. Luke’s is the quiet little church

right in the heart of town. It’s pastor, Martin

Wiley, Jr., generously allows the art

league to pitch its tent in his yard.

This year’s show is slated for September

1 and 2, Saturday 10 to 5 and Sunday

Noon to 5. Don’t miss it.


Shelter Century

Fall Foliage Ride –

October 20, 2012

The Talbot Interfaith Shelter announces

the inaugural Shelter Century Fall

Foliage Ride to be held on October 20,

2012 at 7:00 am. The event will feature

three separate rides, an 11 mile family fun

ride, a 31 mile fitness ride and a metric century

(62.5 mile) ride. Proceeds will benefit

the Talbot Interfaith Shelter, a cold weather

homeless shelter in Talbot County, MD.

The fall foliage ride will take cyclists

through five picturesque waterside villages

in Talbot County, sharing the view with

skipjacks, local watermen and sailboat

races on the Miles River and the Chesapeake

Bay. Starting and ending at the St.

Michaels Schools campus, the town of St.

Michaels offers cyclists a chance to shop

and dine after the event. The event is a ride,

not a race, and will be fun for the entire

family. Rest stops will be available for all

courses with light food, refreshments and

restrooms provided.

The Talbot Interfaith Shelter is dedicated

both to providing safe, temporary

shelter to men, women, and children who

lack adequate housing, and to raising

awareness of the issues of homelessness in

Talbot County. Fourteen faith communities

rotate the homeless shelter through their

church facilities during the cold weather

months. Over 400 volunteers from the faith

communities have worked together since

2008 to keep neighbors off the streets and

in warm beds during the winter. Sponsors

and cyclists participating in the event will

directly help provide shelter to the homeless

during the cold weather months. If

you’d like to make a donation to support

the Talbot Interfaith Shelter, click here.

Century website (www.sheltercentury.org).

Talbot Interfaith Shelter, see their website

Representatives

Dedicate Shore

Medical Pavilion

Shore Health System staff and leadership

joined representatives from the University

of Maryland Medical System,

Maryland Primary Care Physicians and the

Queen Anne’s business community to dedicate

Shore Medical Pavilion, located at

125 Shoreway Drive off of Nesbit Road

and US Rt. 50 in Queenstown. Over 100

guests attended the dedication, which included

a ribbon cutting and tours of the facility.

Located next to the Queen Anne’s

Emergency Center, Shore Medical Pavilion

is home to Maryland Primary Care Physicians,

which relocated from Stevensville to

this more convenient location off of the

Nesbit Road exit of US Rt. 50. Other services

available in the three-story medical

pavilion include diagnostic and laboratory

testing, physical and speech therapy, occupational

health services and several physician

specialty practices including urology,

cardiology, neurology and sleep medicine,

otolaryngology (ENT). The Regional Sleep

Disorders Center also houses a four-bed

sleep lab at Shore Medical Pavilion, with

additional sites available in Easton and

Cambridge.

The dedication of Shore Medical

Pavilion marks the expansion of Shore

Health System’s network of medical care

that spans four counties of the Mid-Shore

region, including Caroline County, Dorchester

County, Talbot County and Queen

Anne’s County,” said Ken Kozel, president

and CEO for Shore Health System. “We are

very excited to be able to bring so many important

services to the residents of Queen

Anne’s County and are grateful to our team

members, University of Maryland partners

and the community for their support in the

development of this medical campus.”

Kozel added, “I am grateful for the enthusiasm

of our physician partners who

specialize in a number of areas. They have

made the commitment to expand their practice

to join us at Shore Medical Pavilion,

allowing us to offer convenient access to

primary and specialty care in Queen Anne’s

County.”

On September 27, the Hugh Gregory

Gallagher Motivational Theatre will present

“Inside Uncle Rosy’s White House: An

Evening with Franklin Delano Roosevelt”

at 7:30pm at the Avalon Theatre in Easton,

MD. The performance is a benefit for the

disAbility Coalition of Talbot County and

stars Bob Chancey as the nation’s 32nd

president.

The play, written by Carlton E. Spitzer

of Easton, and produced by Motivational

Theatre, focuses on FDR’s personal challenges

and family life as well as his political

campaigns and four terms as president.

FDR’s role as a model for persons with disabilities

has been debated for more than 60

years. He lost the use of his legs to polio at

age 39 and led the nation through the great

race, the Choptank Heritage Skipjack Race

offers spectators more accessible views of

the vessels that do compete. The start/finish

line is generally just off Long Wharf, and

views of the mid portion of the race can be

found from Great Marsh Park. Eight to ten

skipjacks are anticipated to participate this

year.

The nonprofit Dorchester Skipjack

Committee assumed responsibility for organizing

the race last year and has made a

commitment to keeping it alive to support

the skipjacks and the community. The boats

compete for pride, not prize, with each participating

skipjack receiving equal show-up

money, which comes from sponsorships

and donations. The skipjack Nathan of

Dorchester, acting as host vessel for the

event, donates her portion back to the race

to allow larger awards to the other skipjacks.

The winning skipjack and her captain’s

names are engraved on the permanent

Choptank Heritage Cup Trophy, established

and sponsored by the National Bank of

Cambridge. The trophy is kept on display

at the Dorchester County Visitor Center.

The winning captain receives a smaller version

of the trophy to commemorate the win.

Capt. Wade Murphy, Jr., won the 2011 race

with his skipjack, Rebecca T. Ruark.

In addition to the National Bank of

Cambridge, other major annual sponsors

are the Nathan Foundation and Snappers

Restaurant, where the post-race luncheon

and trophy presentation are held.

Additional sponsors and donors are

being recruited by committee volunteers to

help support the event and the skipjacks. A

range of sponsor levels offers various

recognition opportunities, from banners on

participating boats to program ads and listings.

In an effort to bring more attention to

the race, Skipjack Committee volunteers

brought additional activities to Long Wharf

for the event last year and plan on further

expansion this year. Bleacher seating once

again will be provided and more food and

gift vendors and exhibitors are expected. A

special regatta for radio-controlled skipjacks

also is planned, along with race-week

activities by Cambridge Main Street.

The public can meet and greet the

skipjack captains and crews on Friday

evening, September 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. at

jazz pianist Monty Alexander, the Festival’s

artistic director and namesake, leading the

Monty Alexander Quartet. Alexander recently

received a Grammy nomination for

best reggae album for his recording

“Monty Alexander HARLEM-KINGSTON

EXPRESS: LIVE!” His music, which

bridges the worlds of American jazz, popular

song, and Jamaican reggae, twice

topped the USA and world jazz charts in

2011.

The Avalon Theatre’s intimate setting

and the lineup of superb artists make the

Monty Alexander Jazz Festival an Eastern

Shore destination for Labor Day weekend.

Trumpet player Dominick Farinacci, who

kicked off last year’s Festival in a duet with

Aaron Diehl, will return with the Dominick

Farinacci Group to open the Festival on Friday

evening, August 31 at 8 p.m.

Farinacci’s horn recalls early

Miles Davis and Chet Baker,

among other trumpet greats. Dominick

was recently featured on

NPR's Jazz Rising Stars and recognized

by The New York Times

as “having the prepossessing

charm and lyrical instinct of a

jazz pop-star.”

Chuck Redd, a Shore favorite,

will lead a Salute to Duke

Ellington with the University of

Maryland Jazz Ensemble on Saturday,

September 1 at 4:00 p.m.

Redd, who has performed with

the Charlie Byrd Trio and the Mel

Torme All-Star Jazz Quintet, has

toured with such jazz greats at

Dizzy Gillespie, Dick Hyman,

Frank Vignola, and Monty

Alexander. The “Washington

Post” recently admired Redd’s

“melodic sparkle,” while “Jazz

Times” called his vibes work,

“Exquisite!” He continues to

please audiences year after year.

Redd will perform with The University

of Maryland Jazz Ensemble,

one of only three elite bands

invited to perform annually at

Washington, DC’s UDC Calvin

Jones Big Band Jazz Festival.

On Saturday night, September

1 at 8 p.m. the Monty Alexander

Quartet, led by Monty

Alexander will entertain the audience

with the joyous side of jazz

(continued on page 47)


(continued from page 46)

in the historic Avalon Theatre’s intimate

venue. Alexander’s early career included

recording sessions with Bob Marley’s first

backing band, the Skatalites. He has toured

the globe over the last five decades and collaborated

with vocalists such as Natalie

Cole and Bobby McFerrin. The “Wall

Street Journal” quotes Alexander as saying,

"My music is the product of having experienced

different cultures and different vibrations."

Monty Alexander will bring an

energetic blend of cultures to Easton on

Labor Day weekend that will leave audiences

wanting more.

To wrap up the weekend of jazz, a new

event will be added on Sunday, September

2 at 2 p.m. when Dee Daniels and her Trio,

along with surprise guests, will headline a

jazz gospel concert, “A Salute to Mahalia

Jackson.” The “Los Angeles Times” says,

“Daniels’ hardy tones, jazz-wise phrasing

and triumphant scat showed why she’s considered

among the cream of mainstream

jazz singers.”

This year’s lineup of top-notch artists

makes The Monty Alexander Jazz Festival

an Eastern Shore destination for Labor Day

weekend. Weekend packages are available

First Annual Great Tomato Festival to Kick Off a New Dorchester Tradition

The Dorchester County Historical Society

(DCHS) will inaugurate a new Dorchester

tradition on Saturday, August 4, 2012,

from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. when it hosts the

county’s first annual Great Tomato Festival.

This free all-day event, which will take

place on the grounds of the Elks Lodge on

Route 50 south of Cambridge, MD, will

feature everything tomato: food, including

fried green tomatoes; along with a host of

other tomato-themed activities including

children’s games, face painting, salsa contests,

square dancing and salsa dancing.

The event will even include a “Tomato

War” playoff where locally sponsored

teams of tomato warriors engage in very

messy combat.

Musical entertainment throughout the

day will feature local entertainers Buddy

Mowbray, T. George Wittstadt and Art

Wheatley, as well as the regionally famous

“Swamp Candy” duo. Vendors of crafts

and memorabilia will be in attendance, and

DCHS will provide displays and presentations

that recall the heyday of tomato production

and canning in Cambridge and

Dorchester County.

Until about 50 years ago, Dorchester

County was home to a major agricultural

industry that centered on tomato farming

and canning. The Phillips Packing Company,

headquartered in Cambridge, was

formed in 1902, and at one time was the

largest tomato canning company in the

United States, providing jobs for about

10,000 workers at its peak. The company

led Cambridge’s economic growth during

the first half of the 20th Century, but

changes in the industry led to its decline

and eventual sale in the late 1950s. The

cannery itself was destroyed by fire in

1965.

The Dorchester County Historical Society

prides itself on “Preserving our past,

celebrating our heritage.” According to

Ann Phillips, Executive Director of DCHS,

“Tomato growing and tomato canning were

such an important part of Dorchester

County’s past that it’s only fitting to honor

that part of our history 50 years after it

drew to a close. There’s certainly no reason

why we can’t celebrate it with a festival,

and have a little fun in the process. While

we’re at it, we’ll highlight much more of

Dorchester’s history with many heritage

demonstrations.”

The Festival will be held at Elks

Lodge #1272 on Elks Lodge Road off

Route 50 just south of Cambridge. DCHS

will welcome any additional vendors and

heritage demonstrators that would like to

participate in the event. Non-profits in particular

are encouraged to attend to promote

both Dorchester County and themselves.

There is no fee for non-profits, whether

they set up an information-only table or

As a man was passing the elephants,

he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact

that these huge creatures were being held

by only a small rope tied to their front leg.

No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the

from their bonds but for some reason, they

did not.

why these animals just stood there and

made no attempt to get away. “Well,”

trainer said, “when they are very young and

much smaller we use the same size rope to

tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold

them. As they grow up, they are conditioned

to believe they cannot break away.

They believe the rope can still hold them,

so they never try to break free.”

The man was amazed. These animals

could at any time break free from their

bonds but because they believed they

couldn’t, they were stuck right where they

were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go

through life hanging onto a belief that we

cannot do something, simply because we

failed at it once before?

Failure is part of learning; we should

never give up the struggle in life.

The Horse That Wanted More Beauty

A cosmic god had a horse. The horse

was beautiful and also it had many good

qualities. But it wanted to be more perfect

in every way. It especially wanted to become

beauty unparalleled.

One day the horse said to the cosmic

god, “0 Lord, you have given me beauty.

You have given me other good qualities. I

am so grateful to you. But how I wish you

could make me more beautiful. I would be

extremely, extremely grateful if you could

make me more beautiful.”

The cosmic god said, “I am more than

ready to make you more beautiful. Tell me

in what way you want to be changed.”

The horse said, “It seems to me that I

am not well proportioned. My neck is too

short. If you can make my neck a little

longer, my upper body will be infinitely

more beautiful. And if you can make my

legs much longer and thinner, then I will

look infinitely more beautiful in my lower

body.”

The cosmic god said, “Amen!” Then

immediately he made a camel appear in

place of the horse. The horse was so dis-

Special

Olympics

A few years ago at the Seattle Special

Olympics, nine contestants, all physically

or mentally disabled, assembled at the starting

line for the 100-yard dash. At the gun,

they all started out, not exactly in a dash,

but with a relish to run the race to the finish

and win.

All, that is, except one boy who stumbled

on the asphalt, tumbled over a couple

of times and began to cry. The other eight

heard the boy cry. They slowed down and

looked back. They all turned around and

went back. Every one of them.

One girl with Down's Syndrome bent

down and kissed him and said, "This will

make it better."

All nine linked arms and walked

across the finish line together.

Everyone in the stadium stood, and the

cheering went on for several minutes. People

who were there are still telling the story.

Why? Because deep down we know this

one thing:

What matters in this life is more than

winning for ourselves.

What truly matters in this life is helping

others win, even if it means slowing

down and changing our course.

heartened that it started to cry, “0 Lord, I

wanted to become more beautiful. In what

way is this kind of outer form more beautiful?”

The cosmic god said, “This is exactly

what you asked for. You have become a

camel.”

The horse cried, “Oh no, I do not want

to become a camel I wish to remain a horse.

As a horse, everybody appreciated my good

qualities. Nobody will appreciate me as a

camel.”

The cosmic god said, “Never try to

achieve or receive more than I have given

you. If you want to lead a desire-life, then

at every moment you will want more and

more. But you have no idea what the outcome

will be. If you cry for a longer neck

and legs, this is what will happen. Each

thing in my creation has its own good qualities.

The camel is not as beautiful as you

are, but it carries heavy loads and has a

tremendous sense of responsibility.”

The 6th annual St. Michaels Concours

d’Elegance has been set for September 30

along the waterfront of the Chesapeake Bay

Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St.

Michaels, MD.

This year’s event features coachbuilt

automobiles, along with other significant,

award-winning motorcars from the Golden

Age of Motoring (1900-1942), as well as a

unique collection of automobiles from the

post-war sports and racing era from 1948

through 1962. A collection of classic

wooden speedboats from the same era will

also be on display along the museum’s

docks.

The Concours kicks off with a participant

welcome reception on Friday, September

28 at CBMM, followed by a motor

tour on Saturday, September 29. The roundtrip

motor tour begins at the Inn at Perry

Cabin and travels to the Hyatt Regency

Chesapeake Bay in Cambridge, before returning

to St. Michaels.

On Saturday, September 29, a gala

fundraiser at the Harbourtowne Golf Resort

and Conference Center in St. Michaels is

open to the general public and features

cocktails, dinner, and a live auction. Tickets

for the gala fundraiser are limited and

available for purchase prior to the event.

On Sunday, September 30, the main

event welcomes the public to the Chesapeake

Bay Maritime Museum with the display

and judging of participating

automobiles and an accompanying fashion

show. Food and beverages will be provided

by the Crab Claw Restaurant. Sponsors for

the event include Jaguar Land Rover Annapolis,

Maryland Life magazine, and The

Shore Life magazine.

General admission for Sunday’s event,

which takes place from 10am to 4pm on

September 30, is $30 for CBMM members

benefiting the children and adults

served by the museum’s educational, exhibit,
