Brewing Fight Over Water Rates
 Argument Leads to Murder, Suicide
By Sarah Miller Staff Writer Chesapeake Beach Town Council members Valerie Beaudin, Jeffrey Krahling, and Eric Re-
inhardt are at the forefront of a movement to charge a at fee for 
each gallon of water used.Chesapeake Beach operates under a tiered system wherehigher volume users receive a discount, causing average house-holds to subsidize large operations.His fellow council members’ arguments are premature be-cause the system is still under study and the proposal hasn’t beenmade, according to Chesapeake Beach Mayor Bruce Wahl.“It’s ridiculous,” he said, adding concerns about “robocalls”from Reinhardt that had the town hall swamped with phone callsfrom as far away as West Virginia.The calls were made to locally listed numbers only, Rein-hardt said. Some numbers may have been changed, or the cell phone holder moved, which would cause calls in from other states.Currently, the town asked rate structure specialist JeanHolloway to design a sustainable and fair new rate structure for taxpayers.The rate structure is more than 20 years old, became an issueduring the last town council elections.The mayor appointed a commission to study the matter and bring back solutions.Reinhardt criticized the commission saying the mayor ap- pointed it with like-minded individuals.
When council members voted to eliminate the fth tier, re
-served to the highest users paying the least, Wahl vetoed the vote,Reinhardt said.He believes it is not too early to “open doors, be transparentand get the public involved.”The Town Council will have a budget work session March 25.Another work session addressing water rate changes is scheduledin early April, Wahl said.Interested individuals can sign an online petition to changethe water rates at www.fairwaterrates.net.
By Sarah Miller Staff Writer Two were killed during an altercationat a Prince Frederick residence on March19.At 1:27 p.m., the Calvert County 911Center dispatched a call for a shooting on
Hallowing Point Road. Ofcers from the
Calvert Investigative Team were in the areaon an unrelated matter and heard the shots.
Those ofcers immediately responded to
the shooting call, according to Sheriff MikeEvans during a press conference.
Upon arrival, ofcers discovered Ray
-mond William Willard, 45, and Carl Ray Nerem Sr., 42, deceased as a result of appar-ent gunshot wounds, according to Evans.Police believe a verbal dispute led toWillard retrieving a handgun and fatallyshooting Nerem before turning the gun onhimself. Both bodies were discovered out-side, one to the left of the driveway and one behind the main house. No other parties were injured. Evansdeclined to identify the one witness.“I don’t believe anyone saw this com-ing,” Evans said.Willard and Nerem were brothers-in-law who resided with homeowner FrancesR. Miller and Angela Willard Nerem at4500 Hallowing Point Road. The family haslived there the past 10 to 15 years, Evanssaid.Sheriff’s deputies had responded to theresidence March 17 for an altercation be-tween the two men, however there was nosign of injury. Neither Nerem nor Willardwanted to pursue the matter.Parties involved in a suspected as-sault cannot be compelled to press charges;whereas, in cases of domestic violence, the
sheriff’s ofce can direct victims toward
agencies for help, Evans said.
