Press Release

Fly Safe with Your Drone

On December 7, 2015, the Federal


Aviation Administrations Safety Team
issued the following reminder:
If you fly a drone anywhere in the nations airspace, you automatically become part of the U.S. aviation system.
Under the law, your drone is an aircraft.
So while the rules for drones may be different, you have the responsibility to operate safely, just as a Cessna or 747 pilot
does.
The FAA has developed a safety

checklist that you, as a pilot, should use


whenever you send a drone into the sky.
We want you to fly safe, fly smart and
have fun.

who has been in practice over
20 years, provides personalized

and specialty physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants that comprise CPA, the employed provider network of Calvert Health System. Teresa
Baran, executive director of CPA, says,
We are delighted to have Dr. Batong as
part of our team. There is a real need for
primary care physicians and she will be a
great asset.
Dr. Batong graduated from New York
Medical College and completed her training in family medicine at Dewitt Army
Hospital in Fort Belvoir, Virginia. A longtime Calvert County resident, Dr. Batong
moved here in 1992 and joined the medical staff at Calvert Memorial Hospital.
She has worked in our community ever
since, both in private practice and at the
hospitals urgent care centers.
Dean Teague, president and CEO of

HOW DOES
A TANKLESS SPACE SAVING CALCULATION
WORK?
The obvious difference
between a tank and a

Not only will you gain

youll also get endless
hot water with a tankless.
Noritz tankless water
heaters last longer than
traditional tank water
heaters and are backed up
with a 12-year warranty.

STEP 5

The Noritz tankless water heater


provides an endless stream of
hot water. When the tap is
turned off, the unit shuts off.

With a tankless, you wont


be using hot water that is
stored in a tank that can
accumulate scale and rust
over time. Noritz units
allow you to set the
temperature you want.

A traditional tank-type water heater takes up to 13 ft2 of


space. If 1 ft2 is worth $200, thats $2,600 (13 ft2 x $200)
worth of space you could be saving at Noritz.

Man Sentenced In
Calvert Beating Death

By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer
A Calvert County Circuit Court judge sentenced a Port Republic man to three decades
in prison Dec. 11 for his part in the beating
death of man involved in what police said was
a botched drug deal.
Judge Gregory Wells sentenced Gary Sylvester Mason, 36, to life in prison but suspended the sentence down to 30 years behind bars.
According to police reports surrounding
the homicide both Mason and his wife, Nicole
Danielle Dalrymple, 28, went to Sixes Road to
meet with the victim, Rodney Vincent Mackall March 3 to buy crack cocaine from him.
According to a police interview with Mason, when the pair met with Mackall he called
out Hello beautiful to Dalrymple which infuriated Mason.
Mason then struck Mackall in the head with
a mallet, felling the victim to the ground. Mason told police that he struck Mackall in the

Crime

head repeatedly with both the mallet and his


fist.
Mason said he and his wife walked towards
the direction of Route 4 where they were
picked up by an aquaintance who had driven
Dalrymple to the drug buy, after the beating.
They told police that before leaving, however, they had gone through Mackalls pockets
and took crack cocaine and the victims wallet.
Mackall was initially taken for medical
treatment to Calvert Memorial and then to the
University of Maryland hospital in Baltimore
where he eventually succumbed to his injuries.
When deputies found Mackall prone in the
driveway of the home on Sixes Road he was
suffering from numerous head wounds and
was bleeding profusely.
Dalrymple was sentenced to life in prison
last month but that sentence was also suspended to 15 years of incarceration.

Trooper Likely At
Fault In Collision

By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer
The acting commander of the Prince Frederick barrack of the Maryland State Police said
that a trooper involved in a Sunday morning
vehicle collision was likely at fault in the incident and could face disciplinary action.
According to a statement from the barrack
Trooper Jordan Jones was driving on Ponds
Wood Road in Huntingtown and failed to stop
at the intersection with Bayside Road, hitting
a southbound passenger vehicle and pushing
it into a utility pole on the opposite side of the
road.
Both Jones and the occupant of the pas-

senger vehicle were injured but received treatment at a nearby hospital and were released.
Det. Sgt. Rosemary King, currently in
charge at the barrack, said Jones will likely be
the subject of a continuing investigation.
Hes on sick leave, King told The County
Times. Preliminarily were saying the tropper went through the stop sign.
King said a detailed crash report is pending
but it appears that the crash was preventable.
If we deem the crash was preventable there
are usually disciplinary actions, King said,
adding, however, that those actions would not
be made known to the general public.

Message from Sheriff Mike


Evans About The Holiday Season
The holiday season is a perfect opportunity to
spend quality time with family and friends. To
ensure a safe and joyous holiday celebration, I ask
that you keep safety at the forefront of all your
activities.
I would also like to take this time to remind you
of a few key messages. Please remember while
out shopping to be mindful of the possible road
conditions, as well as the the increased vehicle
and pedestrian traffic. When you have parcels
and other valuables in your vehicle, remember
to keep these items out of view and your vehicle
locked. Also, do not leave your wallet, purse, or
spare keys in your vehicle.
When traveling and away from homeduring the
holiday season, ask someone you trust to check
on your property. Your property should be well
lit and secured while you are away. Ask the Post
Office to holdyour mailuntil you return home, or

have someone pick itup daily. Please do not post


any messages on Facebook or other social media
sites indicating that you and your family will be
away during this time.
If hosting or attending any holiday activities,
we ask that you not drink and drive. Be prepared
with a designated driver. Please be responsible
during this holiday season. Do not put the lives
of yourself, your passengers, and others at risk.
Call 911 if you suspect impaired driving, notice
anything suspicious in your neighborhood, shopping centers, orelsewhere. Scammers are especially active during this time of year. Youmay access the FBI website,https://www.f bi.gov/scamssafety/e-scams in order to be prepared andaware
of those scams.
The Calvert County Sheriff's Office wishes
you the very best during this holiday season, and
a safe and happy New Year!

Corner
Fire-Rescue-EMS
Most people know that Calvert County has an
all-volunteer Fire-Rescue-EMS service; and is the
only county in the state that has such. We are very
grateful that so many volunteer to provide this vital
service.
The Volunteers are supported by county staff
within Public Safety. They administer a Child-Care
Program for the volunteers assisting with child care
expenses while the volunteer is staffing emergency
equipment of attending approved training. The Recruitment and Retention Specialist oversees this program to ensure appropriate child care payments.
To further support the volunteers, county employees may require specialized training over and above
the normal training provided by the county. Testing
of potential applicants for the Calvert Control Center
(911,) assists in determining if a candidate has the
skills to perform the job.
The county administers a Tuition Assistance
Program for Volunteers by developing policies and
procedures to assist qualified fire-rescue-EMS volunteers with education expenses. The Recruitment
and Retention Specialist also ensures the volunteers
applications are reviewed; and follows up when the
course is completed successfully meeting all the
program requirements ensuring payment will be approved through our internal payment process.
The county staff also assists budget development
to support our volunteer Fire-Rescue-EMS coordinating with the Fire and Rescue Commission. Each
department is required to meet with the Fire and
Rescue Commission and Fire-Rescue Coordinator to
discuss and justify their requests. Once all departments are completed the Fire and Rescue Commission approves the final budget package, the Fire-Rescue-EMS Coordinator will take the final budget that
is approved and convert to the format required for
submission to Finance and Budget. The final budgets
are entered into the budget software and submitted
to Finance and Budget.
Staff attends and provides liaison for the Chiefs
Council, County and Regional Emergency Medical
Services Advisory Council, Fire and Rescue Association Meetings, Fire and Rescue Commission,
Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Service
Systems (MIEMSS) Jurisdictional Advisory Council, Child Fatality Review.
Representatives from Fire-Rescue-EMS to include
the Fire-Rescue-EMS Coordinator and Assistant
Coordinator, Recruitment and Retention Specialist, Emergency Medical Services Specialist, Office
Specialist II, Emergency Management Specialist
and Assistant Communications Chief, Communications Supervisor and Director of Public Safety attend monthly and special meetings as necessary and
serve as subject matter experts, staff support to include preparation of agendas, meeting minutes, correspondence and general liaison.
You can see, that even with an all-volunteer FireRescue-EMS in our county, governmental staff is
still needed.

of Christ and shared her testimony through
her Christian life. She was also active in
the Womens Ministry at Bay Area Community Church in Annapolis, Md.
Two organizations were dear to Aprils
heart: Camp Wabanna and Morning Star
Foundation. Children, including orphans
in China, were her focus. Her interests kept

She loved working with kids at camp,
pulling them through the river on the banana boats, challenging them on the confidence course, encouraging them to come to
Christ and compelling them to serve Him.
Photography, the beach, being outdoors,
travel, hiking, TV binge watching, and getting together with family and friends were
all activities she enjoyed. This past spring
she was able to fulfill a life-long dream of
going to China to visit her friend at Morning
Star Project. The Foundation exists to help
abandoned and needy children with complex heart defects. She especially bonded
with little Molly. April will be truly missed

Activists Want Answers


Gas Plant Debate Continues
By Crista Dockray
Staff Writer

Dominion Cove Point, a liquefied natural gas


facility, has been a concern to the citizens of
Calvert County since its inception. Citizens
from the county, and even some from out of
state, worry of the health hazards, the environmental effects, as well as the safety hazards to
those near the plant.
The request of Quantitative Risk Assessment
from Dominion Cove Point has been a point of
tension between the county and the company.
Members of the community and organizations
have requested the QRA from Cove Point LNG,
but their demands have not been met.
A QRA measures the likelihood of hazardous
events and the consequences it would have on
the surrounding community.
According to Donny Williams, a resident of
Lusby and the organizer of We Are Cove Point,
their concerns include the risks of an explosion
and incarceration within an eighth of a mile, illnesses from the 20 tons of pollutants going into
the air, and trapping around 1,000 people on the
Cove Point Peninsula if a disaster does occur
because of poor evacuation planning.
The QRA that We Are Cove Point and many
others have requested would help answer the
questions or confirm the risks they believe to
be true.
Karl Neddenien, the Media and Community
Relations Manager at Cove Point LNG, says,
We think the worst thing that can happen is
that the tank breaks open, all the LNG spills out
into a dike, so it doesnt just run down into the
ground, and it catches fireif that were to take
place, which is extremely unlikely, the effects
stay on the site.
According to the Vice President of LNG
Operations Mike Frederick, this information
comes from a study done through FERC or the
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
What FERC does is say, assume all of the
detection fails, assume all of the computers
shut down, assume the worst case scenario
your testing happens and you have ignition,
does the result of the event remain on your site?
In fact, FERC doesnt require it to remain on
your site, but we designed it to remain on our
site. So what FERC does and PHMSA (Pipeline
and hazardous materials safety administration)
checksis more conservative than a QRA,
said Frederick.
From this, Dominion Cove Point believes

that the QRA does not need to be done.


Unfortunately, after the events of 9/11, the
public cannot view the safety assessment and
the proof of the worst-case scenario being kept
on site.
FERC requires us to file some information
as CEII, which is Critical Energy Infrastructure
Information. The idea is if we had everything
public and open to all of the bad guys, then
theyll know exactly what to do to cause problems, said Frederick.
Williams believes regardless about what
studies have been done and what they prove,
they were completed almost 10 years ago and
the risks from 10 years ago do not match the
risks that could occur today.
They dont want to do a QRA, I believe, because if they did a QRA they would see that
this should never exist in a residential area,
Williams said. They dont want to do anything
that would risk them completing their project.
In terms of the risk of explosions, Williams
said that accidents happen, even when nobody
has done anything wrong. He says you can see
this through the many explosions that have happened at LNG facilities around the world.
Frederick says that although he cannot say
an explosion is impossible, it is extremely unlikely. We have hundreds of gas detectors in
the plant, so if you have a leak anywhere, it detects it. Depending on where it is, it takes different actions, including automatically shutting
the system down. We have redundant controls
systems everywhere in the plant, so if one computer system fails, there is another backing it
up, Frederick said.
My office is in the corner of the building, do
you know anybody that would have a greater
impetus to make sure this place is safe more
than me? said Frederick.
As far as the pollutants in the air, Dominion
Cove Point works within the EPA standards
and according to Frederick and they follow 55
permits they needed before they could start
construction.
Safety really is our top priority, even though
all companies say its their top priority, said
Frederick.
All we want to do is keeping living our
lives that we have been living, said Williams,
speaking of the past before the plant. People
just want their lives back.

CCPS Employees to Receive Health


Insurance Premium Holiday and Stipend
Calvert County Public Schools
(CCPS) recently received a $2.8 million retrospective settlement for FY2015
from the school systems health insurance provider, CareFirst BlueCross
BlueShield. The Board of Education has
agreed to return all of the money to employees in two ways.
Approximately 25 percent will be
disbursed through an employee and retiree health insurance premium holiday.
For the two pay dates in December, no
deductions will be taken for health insurance premiums for active employees

who are covered members through the


CCPS health insurance program. Similarly, those who retired from CCPS and
are covered members through the CCPS
health insurance program will not be
required to pay health insurance premiums for January 2016.
Approximately 75 percent will be used
to provide a one-time payment to active
employees, with the exception of miscellaneous employees (i.e. substitutes,
extra-pay, extra-duty employees, etc.)
and selected grant-funded employees.
Full-time active employees will receive

CHESPAX Partners
with Calvert
County Mosquito
Control Program
The CHESPAX program of Calvert
County Public Schools and the Calvert County Mosquito Control Program are partnering to educate middle
school students about the ecology of
mosquitoes and their impact on humans and wildlife. Through a grant
from the Chesapeake Bay Trust, a curriculum will be developed using the
Next Generation Science Standards
and the Maryland Environmental Literacy Standards as a framework for
unit design. Students will investigate
the life cycle of the mosquito, its role
in aquatic and terrestrial food chains,
as well as its impact as a vector of various diseases.

The media is invited to attend the


training program for teachers on
Dec. 17 at the CHESPAX office located in Kings Landing Park. The
address is: 3255 Kings Landing Rd.
Huntingtown, Md. 20639. The training will take place from 8 a.m. to 3:30
p.m. The optimum time to speak with
CHESPAX and Mosquito Control
staff will be 11:30 a.m.

$1,000, and part-time active employees


will receive $500. These payments will
be disbursed Jan. 29, 2016.
Dr. Daniel Curry, Superintendent,
said, The Board is pleased to be able
to offer this stipend as a token of their
appreciation for all of our hardworking
employees.
The health insurance benefits provided by CCPS are self-insured, meaning they are funded by the employees
and retirees who are covered members
and the school system. As such, CCPS is
responsible for all covered health insur-

ance expenses incurred by its employees


and retirees and their dependents. Because CCPS uses a self-insurance system, the claims that are paid may equal,
exceed, or fall short of what is actually
paid in premiums.
This atypical settlement was the result of our claims expense for FY2015
being substantially lower than the actuarial premium estimates generated by
CareFirst.

Special Olympics
Maryland Fall
Sports Festival

Two St. Marys County Special


Olympics adult teams competing
in flag football participated in the
annual Special Olympics Maryland
Fall Festival at Mount St. Marys
University in Emmitsburg, Maryland on October 24. The event
showcased 300 athletes from across
the state competing in various fall
sports, including cycling, flag football, long distance running, power
lifting and tennis.
A traditional team of seven athletes (Anthony Cyrus, Avery Long,
Sam Huffman, Thomas Smith,
Rodta Maddox, Larry Mills and
Josh Daye) was coached by Don
Bewick..The unified team, coached
by Lloyd Grayson, consisted of six
Special Olympics athletes (Brandon Chan, Durelle Scott, Dreshawn
Chestnut, Corey Woodland, Shaun
Ridley and new athlete Montgomery Sams) and unified partners
Marc Rinaldo, Adam Chesser and
Will Ridley.

The first game was the traditional team vs the Frederick team.
Despite strong play by Avery Long
and Rodta Maddox, St. Marys fell
0-6. The second game pitted the
two St. Marys teams against each
other. Sam Huffman, Shaun Ridley, Marc Rinaldo and Avery Long
scored touchdowns. The traditional
team won the contest, although new
Special Olympics athlete Dreshawn
Chestnut stepped up and played
well as quarterback for the unified
team. The last game matched St.
Marys and Frederick counties in
a contest of unified squads. Corey
Woodland managed to tie the game
with a touchdown reception, but in
the end Frederick County won.

December is
Designated Driver Month
How will you get home after your holiday party?

The holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Years is


one of the deadliest and most dangerous times of the year due
to an increase in impaired driving.
For a safer holiday season, here are a few simple reminders:

Plan ahead: Whenever you plan to consume alcohol,


designate your sober driver before going out and give that
person your keys.
If youre impaired, have someone call a taxi or a sober
friend or family member to get you home safely.
Promptly report drunk drivers by calling 9-1-1.
If you know someone who is about to drive impaired or ride
with an impaired driver, take their keys and help them
make other arrangements to get to where they need to go
safely.
Do not make alcohol the focus of your holiday parties.
If you are hosting a party, make sure your guests have a
Designated Driver.
