Commissioners Approve Future of


Architecture Review Committees
By Sarah Miller
Staff Writer
The Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) discussed changes to Architectural Review Committees (ARCs)
to make them work more efficiently for
Calvert residents and businesses seeking
to locate in the county moving forward
during their Sept. 1 meeting.
According to documents at the BOCC
meeting, over the course of the past
year, ARCs have been the subject of
concern, regarding both the content of
several reviews and decisions, as well as
operations and structure. In order to improve the architectural review process,
the BOCC has considered the need to
either dissolve or restructure the Architecture Review Committees (ARCs). At
a work session held June 16, the BOCC
discussed options regarding dissolving
or restructuring the seven Architectural
Review Committees. At the work session the BOCC elected to keep the seven
ARCs and directed Staff to develop
more detailed policies to restructure the
architectural review process.
The BOCC was lukewarm on the idea
of the ARCs. Commissioner Mike Hart
expressed concern for the length of time
it takes ARCs to make a decision, and

how often the meetings are canceled.


Time means money for businesses, Hart
said, adding that the ARCs are an archaic process.
Its time to move into the new world,
he said.

Changes to Architectural
Review Committees
The seven existing Architectural Review Committees (ARC) shall remain in
place. However, in order to reduce the
possibility that a meeting quorum is not
met, ARC membership could be reduced
from five members to a range of three to
five members.
ARCs shall continue to hold regular
monthly meeting dates, unless otherwise
indicated by Staff.
Architectural Review Committees
will continue to provide Staff with local
knowledge and history, and act as informal points of initial contact and information for applicants.

All architectural review will be conducted administratively by Staff. This

Town Hall Addresses


Capital Improvements Plan
Budget Build Now Underway

By Sarah Miller
Staff Writer
Community members had a chance to
learn more about the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for Calvert during a
town hall on Aug. 27.
The CIP is a multi-year planning and
budget process that assists the county to
prioritize current and future public constriction and development needs. The
CIP is evaluated every year, said Capital
Projects Analyst Julie Paluda.
The end of one project is sometimes
the beginning of another project, Paluda
said.
During a presentation by Budget and
Finance Department staff, the goals of
the CIP are to build facilities required
by the countys comprehensive plan, support the development objectives stated in
approved county plans, improve financial planning by comparing needs with
available resources, identifying alternate
revenue sources, and estimating future
bond issues, establish project priorities
so effort and limited finds are best used,
coordinate interactions between county
departments with other agencies to implement the projects, and provide an accurate, central source of information on
planned projects for citizens, agencies
and interested organizations.
The county works to control debt while

is the most significant change offered;


currently reviews are conducted by full
ARCs at monthly meetings.
At the determination of Staff, applications of a more complex and sensitive
nature, or those varying significantly
from ordinance requirements or guideline standards, shall be reviewed by the
ARC.
Meetings of an ARC may be held via

telephone conference call, with due public notice.


If a quorum cannot be achieved, the
review shall revert to Staff for administrative approval.
In all cases, the appeal process to the
Planning Commission shall remain in
place.

Calvert County Warns Against Rising


Prescription Pain Medication Abuse
Prescription Painkiller Abuse Can
Lead To Heroin Addiction And Death

Prescription pain medication misuse severely endangers users and often


leads to heroin addiction, according to
the Calvert County Health Department,
which launched a public-awareness
campaign this summer warning Calvert
County residents. The campaign addresses rising opioid and opiate abuse in
the county.
Requests for prescription drug addiction treatment have increased 350 percent in the past five years, according to
the health department. Seventy percent
of Calvert County residents said they
know someone who misuses prescription opioids, which include painkillers
such as Fentanyl, Vicodin, OxyContin,
Percocet and Demerol, and 55 percent of
residents know someone who uses heroin, according to the Maryland Public
Opinion Survey.
The opiate problem in Calvert County is similar to the issues across the state
and country, said Julie Mulligan, prevention coordinator for Calvert County
Health Departments Calvert Substance
Abuse Services. Most users begin with

a legitimate pain prescription for an


injury or surgical procedure but may
switch to heroin because its less expensive, easier to obtain and elicits a similar
high.
Anyone with access to prescription
drugs is at risk of misusing them, Mulligan said, including those with access
through family and friends or through
legitimate or illegitimate prescriptions,
doctors or pharmacies. Middle and high
school students are particularly vulnerable amid pressure from peers and more
freedom in adolescence. Misuse early
in life increases the likelihood of substance-abuse disorders in adulthood.
The individual may or may not be
aware of the potential for addiction and
begin taking more than prescribed,
Mulligan said. Once addicted to the
opiate, users may seek the drug from
family or friends; they may steal others prescriptions; they may doctor-shop
or purchase the prescriptions from a
dealer.
Opioid abuse suppresses the immune
system and can lead to chemical depen-

dence, overdose and death, according to


the Calvert County Health Department.
Physical signs of pill and heroin abuse include pinpointed pupils, slurred speech,
difficulty breathing, skin abscesses, collapsed veins and itching or flushed skin.
Other signs include increased need for
money or privacy, fundamental changes
in behavior, and withdrawal from family
and friends, Mulligan said.
For more information, concerns or
treatment options, Calvert County residents should call the Calvert County
Health Department at 410-535-3079, ext.
6. Calvert Substance Abuse Services,
part of the Calvert County Health Department, seeks to improve public health
and safety by providing prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery services to Calvert County residents. As
part of its efforts, the organization provides workshops, forums, presentations
and trainings about substance abuse.
Opioid abuse is an escalating problem
which the public needs to know about,
Mulligan said. In response, the Calvert County Health Department is us-

ing original billboard, radio, cable and


movie theater advertising (Vimeo video
< vimeo.com/131426983>; ), fliers and
posters, and social media (Facebook <
www.facebook.com/ActNowCalvert>;
and Twitter < twitter.com/ActNowCalvert>; ) to reach Calvert County
residents. The Maryland Department
of Health and Mental Hygiene provided
funding for the effort.
The Calvert County Health Department seeks to promote and protect the
health of county residents by preventing illness and eliminating hazards to
health. As an agent of both the state and
county governments, the department enforces health laws, particularly addressing sanitation and communicable diseases, as well as provides health services to
individuals and the community at large.

CCPS Expands Use


of Bus Status Page

This year, the Bus Status page that the


Department of Transportation piloted in
the spring of 2015 will expand to include
all schools in the system. The page provides real-time updates on buses that are
running more than ten minutes late. A
bus may run late for many reasons, including traffic congestion, mechanical
failure, or the need to return to a school.
The Department of Transportation and
bus contractors work diligently to minimize the unavoidable impact of such
delays.
When a bus driver or bus contractor
notifies Transportation that a bus may
be ten minutes or more behind schedule, a Transportation staff member will
post the information on the Bus Status
page. Students and families may access
the page at www.calvertnet.k12.md.us/
depa r t ments/t ra nspor t / bou nd a r ies/
busstatus.asp or through the CCPS app
for smart phones and tablets.
Please note that Transportation already has a five minute bus window in

place. Students should be at the bus stop


five minutes before the typical arrival
time of the bus and may have to wait five
minutes after the typical arrival time.
Only delays that may cause a bus to run
ten minutes late or more will be reported
on the website.
Transportation has also added several
items to the Department page Safety

Hallowing Point Trailer Park

significant decreases in tobacco


use. Over the years, this funding
has been allocated by subsequent
Governors and the General Assembly to things other than tobacco control, and merchants are
again selling this deadly addictive
product to our children with impunity. Last year, the state nearly
lost a significant portion of its federal drug control money because
we were not meeting the federal
mandated targets on limiting tobacco sales to minors.
If the Lt. Governor wants additional money to fight heroin, I suggest he and the Governor support
our efforts to raise tobacco taxes.
Some of the money raised could
be earmarked for fighting both
heroin and tobacco use.

Bitter cold single digit temperatures on a


Sunday in January 2014, I received a call from
dedicated teachers who were visiting the Hallowing Point Trailer Park to ensure their students were receiving food and supplies. They
described horrible conditions and asked that
I visit. Within an hour, the County Administrator, Terry Shannon and I were on-site observing conditions too deplorable to describe.
Not the worst observations were frozen water
pipes and raw sewage on the grounds.
That evening was a difficult one to fall
asleep in the comfort of a warm home, but
Monday, Terry pulled together a plan. The
next day, the commissioners were briefed and
authorized an immediate rescue mission. Public Safety, Community Resources, Health and
other inspectors descended upon the property.
Eleven trailers were found to be unfit for habitation by the Health Department and 14 families were subsequently relocated to a temporary emergency shelter. Thirty-one adults and
22 children were relocated.
The Housing Authority of Calvert County
helped the dislocated residents with rental options and the Calvert County Department of
Social Services worked with those eligible for
other assistance. Several families elected to
return to the trailer park after water and sewer
violations identified by the Calvert County
Health Department were corrected. Other
families were able to find alternate housing
through relatives or through the assistance of
the Housing Authority.
Since then, inspectors continued to work
in the trailer park for nearly a full year on
the livability code violations regarding leaky
roofs, inadequate heating, electrical problems
and other situations. A legal agreement was
reached to address the environmental and
health hazards at the site to mitigate the majority of environmental and health risks and longterm actions to more fully address the hazards.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources


(DNR) reached agreement
with the property owner to
purchase the 5-acre property. The purchase was
approved by the Maryland Board of Public
Works (Gov. Larry Hogan, Comptroller Peter
Franchot and Treasurer Nancy Kopp) Aug. 26.
Under the conditions of the sale, the current
property owner must clear the site of all improvements (trailers, buildings, etc.) and properly abandon well and septic systems. Closing
on the property will occur only after the site
is properly cleared. This time will allow the
owner to provide proper notification and relocation of the current trailer park residents.
The property owner will have up to one year
to transition any remaining tenants out of their
trailers and clean up the property before going
to settlement. We are thankful that the sales
agreement requires that the land owner to finally clean up the property as a condition of
settlement prior to DNR acquisition.
While many may want to actively help
these families, they still deserve their privacy.
The state Department of Human Resources,
through its local Social Services offices, determines eligibility for public assistance.
Housing assistance may be available, and state
Social Services will work with local organizations to provide emergency shelter and transitional housing if needed. The county Department of Community Resources (410-535-1600,
ext. 8803) is available for intake and referral
services.

In recent media appearances


Maryland Lt. Governor Rutherford has stated that the state lacks
funds to fight the heroin problem
that killed 578 Maryland residents
last year.
Although I agree heroin deaths
are a major problem, this number
pales when compared to the 6,800
deaths each year in Maryland
from tobacco-related disease, secondhand smoke or fires caused by
cigarettes.
Lt. Governor Rutherford states
that.... Every third-grader can tell
you how bad cigarettes are, ....
yet approximately 12 percent of

and 16.4 percent (758,600) of our

the tobacco problem and we saw

Calvert Library Completes 3-Year Strategic Plan

By Sarah Miller
Staff Writer

Calvert Library recently completed a comprehensive study of services offered, community needs and resource utilization to
create a comprehensive strategic plan for the
next three years.
The strategic planning process began in
March of 2015. From the start it was designed
to be inclusive and engaging, said Calvert Library Director Carrie Plymire.
According to Public Relations Coordinator
Robyn Truslow, three community areas of interest emerged during the community survey
health, finance, and community service.
People want to be involved in the community and they want to make a difference,
Truslow said.
Organizational Management and Change
Consulting Specialist Marisa Sanchez donated more than 70 hours to interview all branch
managers and coordinators and conduct focus groups with staff at each branch and the
Board of Library Trustees, Plymire said.
Staff and leaders had opportunities to
voice their assessment of the current state
of the library and to articulate ideas for further direction. In addition, approximately 60
percent of the staff participated in one of five
teams formed to collect additional data, Plymire said.
In addition to community focus groups,
library employees were involved in a number of teams to collect data about the Calvert
County population and current library usage.
The Customer Survey Team administered a
survey to over 1,000 existing and potential
customers to understand customer needs.
The Focus Group Team conducted 11 focus
groups reaching well over 100 individuals to
understand community needs. The Benchmarking Team explored trends in comparable public libraries. The Program Inventory
Team evaluated existing library programs
based on impact and viability.
Moving forward, the library will be eval-

uating at all programs offered and finding


places to trim in order to make way for new
programs and fill the service gaps.
The library will be researching ways to
embed librarians within the community in an
outreach capacity, Truslow said.
In locations researched during the development process, libraries were found that
lend librarians to tourism and economic departments, or that spend time at community
centers and health departments doing storytimes. One of the more successful outreach
programs has librarians go into the womens
detention center and work with mothers to
learn how to read to their children. Mothers
record themselves reading a book and send
the recording and a copy of the book to their
children, Truslow said.
One way the library intends to fill gaps
moving forward is by partnering with
schools, the local government and businesses
to raise awareness and offer additional programming. The library will continue to utilize volunteers to support libraries by teaching programs and free up time for librarians
to spend more time with customers.
One of the most pressing service gaps
identified during the study was the lack of
services to teens. Other libraries have teen
centers, Plymire said, and in coming months,
the library will try to find ways to offer a safe
place for teens to socialize and be creative
without the structure of a formal program.
None of the libraries have a place for teens
that are safe, creative, chaotic, and loud, Plymire said, adding that that is the kind of place
teens want.
According to information from Calvert
Library, The strategic plan will serve as
Calvert Librarys organization roadmap for
FY16-FY18. Each year, the library will create an annual plan outlining the services,
programs and events that will aid us in accomplishing our strategic goals and objectives. These will be prioritized based on
importance and resource availability. The
director will monitor the progress of the plan

Archive photos by Sarah Miller

and provide the library board with


a progress report
every six months. The success of the plan
will be measured by increases in the transactions associated with the goals and by the
positive outcomes resulting from our role in
the community as we inspire possibility.
One of the goals in the plan was to beef up
the virtual branch of the library, Plymire said,
and strides are already being made to fulfill
that goal. The library recently added two
platforms to allow patrons to access movies,
music, audiobooks, and more Hoopla and
One Click Digital.
The librarys goal is to support the community, Plymire said, and the strategic plan
will be evaluated regularly to ensure it remains relevant.

Martial Arts at the Library


By Sarah Miller
Staff Writer
Do you want to learn the basics of self-defense, or staying safe when you leave home?
Sign up for the self defense workshop, to be
hosted at Calvert Library Prince Frederick in
cooperation with the Black Belt Academy of
Prince Frederick on Sept. 9 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
You can't communicate to somebody in
an hour and a half how to defend themselves, said Black Belt Academy owner
Master Kyle Webber. His goal is to give
participants advice on staying aware of
their surroundings and showing them basic
defensive moves they can practice at home.
He plans to focus on situational awareness
and assertiveness, giving people the tools
to stand up for themselves and take their
safety into their own hands.
"It's better to have it and not need it than
to not have it," Webber said.
The goal of programs at the library are to
introduce participants to a topic, then offer
resources to learn more, said librarian Molly
Weeks Crumbly.
This is not the first time Calvert Library
has hosted a self-defense workshop and it
won't be the last, said Crumbly, who is also

an instructor at the Black Belt Academy.


This workshop is geared for adults ages 16
and up, and there will be a workshop for
middle school students in Spring 2016. For
more information, or to register for the selfdefense class, visit calvert.lib.md.us.

The purpose of the Live Out Loud End Hunger
Obstacle Run is to end hunger in Calvert County by
doing something you love and making a difference
while you do it, said Chesapeake Church End Hunger supervisor Jackie Miller. The best part of the Live
Out Loud Obstacle Run is that its an event for everyone and our largest age group is teens!

The Live Out Loud End Hunger Obstacle Run was


first created to honor the life of Matthew Bertolaccini.
Matts family and friends wish to perpetuate the
spirit of his faith and compassion for other by dedicating this event to him, Miller said.
Bertolaccinis life was ended tragically at the age of
thirteen in an accident in 2004.
Participants in the Live Out Loud Obstacle Run will
help to support Bertolaccinis family, as well as End
Hunger in Calvert County. The money raised from the
event will go directly to End Hunger to help provide
meals for families in need, and fund future End Hunger events.
The run emphasizes on giving local support to the
community, as well as getting more people involved in
the End Hunger community. There will be a tribute to
Bertolaccinis family after the races have been completed, as well as an after party complete with a DJ
and free food. The event is fun and enjoyable, but also
helps a meaningful cause.

Always There
Companion Care
By Sarah Miller
Staff Writer
Do you have a loved one living at home
who needs a little help during the day? Always there Companion Care (ATCC) can
offer some help!
ATCC Owner Sandie Johnson started
the business six years ago. She was working at a nursing home at the time, and was
in contact with a number of families trying
to keep their loved ones at home as long as
possible.
I opened the business for the families,
Johnson said.
Becoming a caregiver for an aging family member can be taxing on the entire
family, Johnson said. ATCC gives offers
respite for families so they can work, go on
vacation, and go to school without worrying about their loved one at home.
ATCC does not offer health care services, such as bathing and giving out medica-

tion. They can help cook meals, give clients


rides to appointments, and the security of
having someone else in the house. Companions will even go to medical visits with
clients to ensure the family gets all needed
information from the doctor.
Before taking on a client, Johnson
and ATCC Director of Operations Paula
Morgan will go into the home and evaluate what type of care is needed and work
out the details with the family. If the care
needed exceed what ATCC can provide,
Johnson has a number of resources she will
recommend. Safety is their highest priority, she said.
ATCC can offer around the clock care,
and all employees are trained to work with
clients with varying degrees of dementia
and Alzheimers.

From my Backyard to our Bay


A St. Marys County Residents Guide to Improving Our Environment and Drinking Water

From My Backyard
to Our Bay was first
developed by the Baltimore
County Soil Conservation
District. From there, the
booklet was given to each
of the Soil Conservation
Districts in the Chesapeake
Bay watershed area for
customization. If the 17.5
million residents who live in
the watershed area of the
Chesapeake Bay read this
booklet, and took to heart
its suggestions and best
practices, the Chesapeake
Bay would see a dramatic
increase in health. Obtain
a FREE copy of the
booklet by going to the St.
Marys River Watershed
Association, smrwa.org and
downloading it. The booklet
is available at Wentworth
Nursery in Charlotte Hall;
Chicken Scratch in Park
Hall; The Greenery in
Hollywood; Good Earth
Natural Food; and the St.
Marys Soil Conservation
District in Leonardtown.
Join your local watershed
association and make a
difference for Our Bay!

Forest Stewardship
Forest land is important to the overall
health of the Chesapeake Bay. Forests
provide several layers, from the canopy
to the forest floor, that act as filters,
improve water quality, reduce sedimentation, remove nutrients, and regulate
stream flow during storms.
Marylands 2.5 million acres of forest,
most of it privately owned, cover approximately 42% of its land area. St.
Marys Countys land area is about 50%
forested, and has more than 400 miles
of shoreline. Wooded buffers along
these shorelines are critical to improving Bay health. Acre for acre, forested
lands produced the least amount of runoff and pollution. The County occupies
a forest transitional zone, where the
dominant tree species vary from oak/
hickory to tulip poplar to sweet gum/red
maple and loblolly pine.
Forests can be harvested on a sustainable basis for materials, including
structural lumber, crates, shelving
and furniture, flooring, mulch, and
pulp for paper. Forests can, in most
cases, provide these products while
