St. Marys Goes McCain

Obama Wins Nation; County Favors Slots
Crosby Wins Slim Victory
Absentee Vote May Decide School Board
Andrea Shiell Staff Writer A thick line of people huddled under their bright umbrellas outside Green Holly Elementary School on Tuesday morning, visible from a distance and littering the sidewalk with bold blocks of rainy-weather colors like pink, green, black, orange, and of course, red and blue. A few minutes before 7 am, the line shifted forward as the doors were opened, and a few minutes later the people moved inside, cramping the small gymnasium as they waited to vote. Some came with their children, others came with their spouses, but all smiled as they cast their ballots in what has been described as one of the most riveting elections in generations.

Teen Rape Suspect Will Stay In Detention For Now

By Guy Leonard Staff Writer Circuit Court Administrative Judge Karen H. Abrams has denied the petition of a 1-year-old juvenile charged with the second-degree rape of a 12-year-old girl to have a hearing challenging the legality of his detention. The denial of the writ of habeas corpus came down from Abrams office before the hearing was scheduled to take place Nov. 3. Kevin J. McDevitt, defense attorney for John K. Edison, Jr., said the next step will be more motions hearings and then on to a trial. He said his juvenile client remains incarcerated at the St. Marys County Adult Detention Center in Leonardtown. My client maintains his innocence and is looking forward to his day in court, McDevitt said in response to Abrams ruling.

Flight Time For Local Emergency Helicopter Slashed

By Guy Leonard Staff Writer Local public safety officials are worried that response times for air evacuation of critical patients could increase substantially after the operating hours for Trooper 7, the Maryland State Police helicopter that flies out severely injured patients based at St. Marys County Regional Airport have been cut in half. According to Thomas Mattingly, Jr., communications manager for the countys Department of Public Safety, local 24-hour air evacuation coverage has come to an end. The biggest issue well experience is possible delays in response time, Mattingly told The County Times Monday in a phone interview. Its not 24/7 coverage anymore. I dont know why the change was made. Mattingly said that with Trooper 7 on station, emergency respondSee Trooper 7 page A-5

Boyden Gallery Opens Three From Virginia Held Collage Perspectives On Narcotics Charges
Andrea Shiell Staff Writer Mary Braun, director of the Boyden Gallery at St. Marys College of Maryland, said she has always appreciated collages, but that the newest exhibit showcasing collages from three different artists has educated her quite a bit on the art form. Collages are essentially about relationships, she said, adding that the mixed media and materials did as much to convey each artists message as the picture itself. The exhibit, Collage Perspectives, brings together three Philadelphia-area artists; Bill Freeland, Andrea Packard, and Peter Paone. The show kicked off Oct. 20 with an informal gallery talk with Andrea Packard Oct. 22, and will run until Nov. 22. Walking through the exhibit, the differences between the artists define what can only be described as a dynamic relationship between the works and the artists themselves. Peter Paone has had 52 one-person exhibitions in New York, Houston, Fort Worth, Philadelphia, London, and Germany, but this is his first exhibition including a major series of his collages. Paones work echoes what is commonly thought of when the word collage appears, harkening to what many Guggenheim purists would recognize as the modernist tradition reexamined, with glued on patches colliding with the rest of the media underneath, combining the tradition of Braque and Picasso with personal and surrealist elements. His colors are warm, his juxtapositions are rich, and his pieces are arranged with a keen eye for symbolism. Andrea Packard has a solo collage exhibition on display at the Philadelphia International Airport, but she has also displayed works at the Painting Center and the obbi Lane Gallery in New York. Additionally, her work has been included in several collections including the Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia, the Museum of American Art at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Center for Emerging Artists. Since 1995, Packard has directed the List Gallery at Swarthmore College, serving as curator for more than 60 exhibitions and authoring more than a dozen catalogue essays. She has even enjoyed her own tenure in St. Marys County, as a resident at St. Marys College of Maryland. Packards selections show what might happen if Matisse or Bearden ran out of paint or photographs and had to work with a pair of scissors and their grandmothers quilt collection. Her pieces employ densely layered strips of paper and fabric, arranged almost as a sea or forest of strips of everything from old greeting cards to her favorite pair of jeans, culminating in a unique collage aesthetic that plays with spatial relationships and creates dreamlike landscapes. The works of Bill Freeland seem minimalist when compared with the other two, but they are no less imaginative. Freeland graduated from Hans Hoffmans school of painting in Provincetown, Mass., and he taught at Moore College of art and design in Philadelphia for more than 20 years, having exhibited paintings, drawings and sculptures for more than 50 years. Freelands works are nothing less than collages made into sculptures, using the collage aesthetic to make rustic two and three-dimensional paintings, taking much of his inspiration from nautical and agricultural themes. Braun smiled as she walked past each piece in the gallery. Embedded in all these thingsare memories, she said, pointing to Packards strips of fabric next to Freelands bent wood pieces next to Paones surreal assemblages, each piece bespeaking its relationship to the next one, the exhibit flowing like a collage of collages. By Guy Leonard Staff Writer A traffic stop by Maryland State Police in the early morning hours of Nov. 1 netted several varieties of narcotics, thousands of dollars in cash and the arrests of three suspects from Virginia who prosecutors allege were transporting the narcotics with intent to distribute them. OKeefe C. Stanley, Jr, 30, of Falls Church, Michael Anthony Dominguez, 22 of Arlington and Dre M. Roberts, 25, of McLean had their preliminary hearings Nov. 3 in front of District Court Judge John F. Slade III. Roberts and Stanley were held on $150,000 and $250,000 full bonds respectively; Judge Slade ordered Dominguez be held without bond because of numerous incidents where he failed to appear in court on other charges. Before Judge Slade could cut Dominguez off from asking a question, the suspect said, Im kind of confused, the drugs are mine. In charging documents filed against all three suspects, Dominguez also said the narcotics found in the vehicle by state troopers were his. According to court papers, a state trooper pulled over the vehicle the three were driving in on Route 235 in Hollywood because the tag light was inoperative and the tags on the vehicle had just expired. The vehicle was a gold Cadillac Escalade with Virginia tags, court papers stated, and was driven by Stanley. Assistant States Attorney Daniel J. White said during the hearings that Roberts had told police she did not know the names of the men with whom she was driving and denied having any relationship with them. White also said in court that Roberts used a cell phone to allegedly call other confederates in the alleged drug running operation, apparently to warn them they had been caught and to dispose of evidence. Shes certainly a confederate of theirs, White told Judge Slade. Roberts denied Whites claim. I didnt alert anyone, I was calling for a ride home, Roberts said. Dominguez, White told the court, also gave law officers a false name when they questioned him that day. When they ran his fingerprints through the FBI, they found out who he was, White said. Police also found more than $10,000 in cash on Dominguez, White said in court, and that a more thorough search of the car was pending. According to charging documents, the trooper who pulled over the three suspects smelled a strong odor of marijuana when he began to interview them and requested back up. While initially searching the vehicle, troopers found a bag of suspected marijuana in the center console, charging documents state, as well as packages of hashish, hashish oil and additional marijuana throughout the vehicle. All three were charged with three separate counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance with the intent to distribute it. Each count has a maximum penalty of five years in prison or a $15,000 fine if the suspects are convicted. Preliminary hearings have been set for Nov. 26 for all three suspects, while Circuit Court indictments are expected soon.

To The Editor:
Millions of car owners in Maryland trust neighborhood repair shops to provide affordable and competitive automotive repair service. Unfortunately, car manufacturers are making it difficult for independent repair shops to obtain the technical information needed to repair todays vehicles. As technology becomes more sophisticated, the situation will become worse. Thousands of neighborhood small businesses in Maryland that repair automobiles will be forced out of business without the technical and safety information available only from the car companies. Withholding information will eventually prevent both car owners and highly skilled technicians from being able to make the simplest repairs to vehicles, and thats the makings of a disaster for consumers unless something is done. Manufacturers use these tactics to prevent you from bringing your car to a repair shop of your choice, and force you to patronize the manufacturers dealer. Consumers will lose their choice to have repairs made more conveniently, and less expensively. Congress is now considering the Motor

Editorial & Opinion

-H; McKays Partner In Youth Program
Considering the vast array of economic and social problems facing our country, we would like to share the positive results of a partnership between education, community members, and local business. The St. Marys County 4-H Program recently collaborated with McKays Food and Drug to carry out a successful event that promoted 4-H, brought attention to local agriculture, and raised funds for 4-H youth programs. Maryland 4-H programs are non-profit and offer more than one hundred projects to urban, suburban, and rural youth in the areas of human science, animal science, and environmental science. These programs rely heavily on donations and grants to support educational activities. David McKay, the president of McKays Food and Drug, recently offered to support St. Marys County 4-H efforts by sponsoring a 4-H promotion/fundraiser. McKays bought a steer raised by a county 4-H member and donated the meat back to the 4-H program. Next, McKays had its expert kitchen staff prepare a variety of cooked meats ranging from hamburgers to roast beef. During the past week 4-H staff, families, and volunteers held bull roasts in partnership with McKays at the Leonardtown store and the Charlotte Hall store: Both events were a huge success. The bull roasts raised money to fund 4-H educational programs, brought public attention to the importance of St. Marys County agriculture, and spotlighted ways that local businesses can give back to the community. The bull roasts proved to be educational for 4-H youth as well. Our members learned marketing and customer service skills as well as food safety and preparation techniques. Overall, the event was successful on a number of levels and the 4-H educators would like to thank McKays for its generous support. We would also like to thank our members, volunteers, and parents for their time. This collaborative venture demonstrated that education, business, and community partnerships can achieve positive results for everyone involved. Sincerely, Tom Hutson Gail Whitney B a r b a r a Dobbins 4-H Youth Development Educator 4 H Program Assistant 4-H Program Assistant of Maryland Extension Leonardtown, MD portunity/access programs University Equal opVehicle Owners Right to Repair Act (HR 2694). This legislation will make it illegal for vehicle manufacturers to withhold technical information from car owners and repair shops. After all, shouldnt car owners choose where they have their vehicle repaired and not the manufacturers? If Congress fails to pass the Right to Repair Act, then over 4.4 million cars on the road today in Maryland will no longer be able to choose from nearly 4,000 independent repair shops in Maryland for service, but will instead be forced to one of the 378 manufacturers car dealers for necessary repairs. Please ask your elected officials to support the Right to Repair Act by visiting www. righttorepair.org to send a letter to each of your congressional representatives, urging them to add their names to the growing list of co-sponsors.

11.02 CIP Budget Transfer for School Sites The school system staff has been working collaboratively with county government in pursuit of future school sites. County government has taken the lead in the search for school sites, given their staffs resources and their pursuit for other public use properties. There are several parcels of land which are currently under consideration for public use as well as for school sites. The school system has participated in the review of the sites. At this time county government has requested that the $2.5 million currently allocated to the school system for school sites be reverted to county government for the purchase of school sites currently under consideration. Over the next ten years, there will be a need for three additional elementary school sites, one middle school site, and one high school site. School system staff will continue to search for school sites with county government providing the lead. Funding Source: Local Capital Improvements Program. Motion: That the Board of Education of St. Marys County approve the budget transfer reverting $2.5 million of capital improvement funds earmarked for school sites to the Board of County Commissioners for St. Marys County who will purchase the required school sites.

ers could expect to get an evacuation for a severely injured person in about 10 minutes. The change in hours could mean response times might increase to as much as 20 minutes to almost half-an-hour for an air evacuation, Mattingly said, if Trooper 7 is not operational. Now we could be waiting for something out of Andrews [Air Force Base], Med Star or U.S. Park Police, Mattingly said. Those airfields are in Prince Georges and Montgomery counties and the District respectively. Lt. Mike Thompson, commander of the Leonardtown barrack for the Maryland State Police declined to comment on the recent change; calls to the Pikesville headquarters were unsuccessful in gaining information on the change. Media representatives from the headquarters were unavailable because, reportedly, they were out on a state holiday for election. Mattingly told The County Times that he and others in his department had learned of the St. Josephs Church, Morganza, MD change in operating hours, presents our which is now from noon to midnight, about 10 days ago to be held at but only informally.

has any connection to the Trooper 2 crash in Prince Georges County in late September. The entire f leet of 11 remaining helicopters was grounded by state officials in the aftermath of the crash to rule out systemic mechanical problems, but they were later placed back in service. The Maryland Board of Public Works recently approved $300 million in budget cuts from Gov. Martin OMalleys administration, including a hiring freeze on Maryland State Police positions to the tune of $4.5 million in savings. No reductions for the aviation units were expressly listed in the budget cuts summary from the state. The cuts for Maryland State Police also included eliminating 25 vacant positions. Del. John Wood (DDist. 29A) expressed surprise and agitation at the change in f light operations for Trooper 7. He vowed to learn more about why the decision was made. Not a word has been said about reducing the hours of the medevac, Wood told The County Times. This is the first Ive heard anything about it. Thats a bunch of b.s., thats the only thing weve got at this end of the state.

backs of tax payers. Both men disapproved of the handling of the Iraq War by the current Bush administration. A debate between the two candidates never materialized, but Bailey would travel to various forums to get his message of constitutionally constrained, smaller government out, including radio interview spots. Hoyer, however, used methods like virtual teleconferences to reach voters on what Congress was doing to stimulate a lagging economy and answer issues concerning energy alternatives. John Shaver, of Great Mills, said he voted for Hoyer because of his experience in office and support of national defense industries. He has longevity, and hes supported my business, the defense industry for a long time, Shaver said. Shaver, however, voted for McCain, for president, because he represented his own values better than Obama, he said. The election for many nationwide was an exciting time but Shaver said his emotions were more tentative. Excited? I was more concerned on what the future holds, Shaver said. Voter turnout for in local elections was strong according to anecdotal evidence from poll workers. I bet you couldnt find five parking spaces this morning, said John K. Parlett, who was campaigning for Hoyer at Lettie Marshall Dent Elementary School in Mechanicsville. Ive worked this poll for years and this is as steady as Ive seen it. By about 7:45 p.m. Election Night Hollywood Volunteer Fire Department was reporting high turnout as well. In district 6-1, 69.5 percent of voters had cast their ballots, in district 64 68.9 percent had cast their votes. More Republicans than Democrats turned out in those two precincts.

Shower Musings

Continued from page A- Marys voters overwhelmingly supported the presidential bid of Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) over Illinois Sen. Barack Obama (D) by a 58 percent to 41 percent margin. County voters also approved an amendment to the state constitution allowing slot machines as well early voting. State-wide, however, Obama handily won Marylands 10 electoral votes. Hoyer, who has served in the U.S. Congress for nearly three decades ran on his experience and ability to get key legislation passed that often brought monetary benefits to Southern Maryland. Hoyer has been a key supporter of operations at Patuxent River Naval Air Station, which represents 80 percent of the St. Marys Countys economy and national military strength as a whole. But Hoyers long record of bringing home money and programs to his constituent base was attacked by Bailey, 54, a member of the Charles County Board of Education and self employed business man, as promoting government largess. Bailey, who supported the presidential candidacy of Congressman Ron Paul of Texas, labeled Hoyer as a supporter of ever expanding big government and targeted Hoyer for his support of a $700 billion which turned into $850 billion bailout package for rotten mortgages and other assets that some in government and Wall Street believed would collapse the economy. In interviews with The County Times Hoyer said he supported the bailout package but admitted that he was not sure it would work. Bailey said that the bailout was a giveaway to businesses that acted unethically in handing out bad mortgages on the

Shelby Oppermann

By Shelby Oppermann My husband and I had a conversation with a gentleman, named Billy, a few weeks back, and somehow we ended up talking about thought processes and such. Our friend mentioned how he can be taking a shower, and thinking about all sorts of things, planning his day and when he is finishing cant remember whether he has washed his face or shampooed his hair already. I said. Wow, I thought I was the only one who did that! No matter how hard I try sometimes, I cant remember washing my hair or face. I rub my fingers on my face to see if it squeaks, even if it does, Im still not positive. I smell my hair for evidence of fruity shampoo. And then still wash it again, causing my hair to have enough static to make the Bride of Frankenstein jealous. Its like being in a CSI episode every morning. Its not like when you forget when you get to one room in your house what it was you went there to get, and then you walk back to where you started to remember. It is really hard to do that in a shower stall. What are they? Three, four feet? If someone had a hidden camera on you, it would look like you were doing the Electric Slide during your whole shower. Some people have the two foot square shower stalls. What do they do? Walk around in circles endlessly? I, too, plan my day, have anxiety over hundreds of problems, and write poetry & prose in

the shower. This part is really bad, youre reading closely now I bet. I sing songs to my dog Tidbit who lies on the bathroom rug. The Slinky song seems to be one of her favorites. Tidbit, Tidbit, youre such a magical dog She always just walks on in the bathroom with me, so I tell her come on, its sauna time. If she was one of those wrinkly dogs, this would have more of an effect for her. Whats worse, I must confess, is that I thought, if anyone else did have shower amnesia that it would be a woman not a man. Making the assumption that this was just one of our midlife things. But then I had problems remembering how far back I couldnt remember remembering in the shower. Then you get into being sexist, believing that men just get into the shower to get clean, get in and get out, so to speak. Hurry up and start their day. I feel bad now how shocked I was that Billy and I shared this probably common daily occurrence of human nature. So, all this time, I just thought I was slowly losing my mind, and it just so happened to show up more during showers. To all my friends out there, Stop, dont say what youre really thinking. Since I am a morning person, and normally write or do anything creative only before 7 a.m., I am now heading to the shower, to see if a second burst of creativity will shine through. You can stop reading now if you like, or continue with an excerpt of one of my shower poems. It was an especially creative shower where I wrote two poems. To each new days adventure, Shelby Send comments to: shelbys.wanderings@ yahoo.com What do I do? Two poems streaming through my brain at the same instance Words from each making trails down my body like the water beads in this shower Oh no, Ill lose my train of thought on one or the other I can go months, truthfully now, years without any words making their way to a page Now, all of a sudden, there are two?

In the Night of the Heat by Blair Underwood, Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes
c.2008, Atria
By: Terri Schlichenmeyer Remember all the dumb stuff you used to do when you were younger? Remember slipping out the bedroom window for fun, while your parents thought you were asleep? Sneaking into grown-ups-only places? Drag racing down a straightaway, making prank phone calls, pilfering a sip of what was in Dads glass? Sure, you remember all those stupid things you did when you were a kid. Some of them were annoying but legal. Some of them, not so much. Tennyson Hardwick would like to forget everything in his past: his former job, his relationship with his father, the fact that he didnt complete his cop-school training. In the new novel In the Night of the Heat by Blair Underwood, Tananarive Due, and Steven Barnes, there are a lot of other pasts Ten would like to forget if he lives long enough. For the first time in ages, Tennyson Hardwick is working. For the first time he can remember, hes happy. Ten has a job, a girlfriend, his fathers health is stable, and Chela, the teenage runaway he shelters, seems to want to stick around. But then, everything falls apart. Tens past catches up with him, which results in his TV-show characters unscheduled demise. April, Tens girlfriend, decides to accept a teaching position in South Africa, which signals the end of their relationship. And Chela is talking to some online sleazebag. Then new work comes, unwelcome. Football star T.D.

Jackson is discovered dead in his house, an apparent suicide. Jackson had recently been declared innocent in his ex-wifes murder and that of her fianc, and T.D.s fans wholeheartedly supported him. They loved the star and clamored to get his autograph. Jackson should have been at the top of his game in many ways. Suicide didnt seem like something hed even try. At least, thats what Jacksons cousin thought. Melanie knew Tennyson from college, and she knew hed solved murders before. She and Jacksons father hired Ten to find out what really happened to T.D. Jackson. Theyd love to know. But someone else will do anything to make sure Tennyson Hardwick doesnt find out the truth. If you pick this book up, theres one thing you need to know: if you like your sleep, keep this book out of the bedroom. Read it in bed, and youll never turn the light off because In the Night of the Heat is one of those books you cant put down, no matter how late it gets. Authors Blair Underwood, Tananarive Due, and Steven Barnes have created a JamesBondsian hero for us regular people by giving us Tennyson Hardwick. Hardwick is smart, but does things he regrets. Hes handsome but doesnt always get the ladies. And while you know hes going to get himself out of trouble in the long run, watching him do it will have you chewing your fingernails. If youre looking for a book to spend a long winters night with, this is one youll devour. In the Night of the Heat is a hot book that should not be passed.

ness of the charges against Edison merited his being held for trial in the circuit court. In the aftermath of Edisons arrest in July, the defense filed a motion for an emergency bond hearing in late August, arguing there was evidence showing Edison could have had the charges against him thrown out, but that motion was denied. Edisons parents and family picketed outside the Circuit Court in Leonardtown in August protesting the detention of their son when the rape charge against him was replaced with a criminal summons. Edison was twice denied bond in county District Court, back during the summer, as the judge there believed there

was probable cause to hold him in detention. In McDevitts motion for a writ of habeas corpus, and in his arguments before Judge Kaminetz in October, he claimed there was a lack of physical injuries visible on the victim, to which the doctor who examined the victim testified. But, Judge Kaminetz said that in such cases evidence of physical injury was not the only measure of whether a victim had been assaulted. Court records show that Edison is scheduled for trial in mid-December. He has also been charged with a fourth-degree sex offense and second-degree assault.

The Daily Grind

Andrea Shiell Staff Writer Richard Shin knows many of his customers by name, and he cheerfully waved and called out to them as they entered his shop, passing by and waving back as he poured green coffee beans in his large roaster and adjusted a few settings. Burlap sacks full of beans from Costa Rica, Tanzania, Brazil, and Ethiopia lined each end of the register. Warm lighting glinted off the colors of the walls as the smell of coffee wafted from one end of the shop to the other. It was a typical day at Coffee Quarter in Lexington Park, and Shin was overflowing with energy as he bounded back and forth from the dining room to the large Turkish roaster near the front of his shop. One might wonder where he would get all this energy, even though he has access to unlimited caffeine, since he works full time as an electrical engineer in addition

La Plata Man Dies Following Waldorf Beating

Two From St. Marys Held As Suspects
By Guy Leonard Staff Writer Two St. Marys County men held as suspects in the beating of a La Plata man who later died could be facing additional charges after the victims death was ruled a homicide, according to information from the Charles County Sheriffs Office. Charles County law enforcement reports state that on Oct. 29, the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore declared Joshua Matthew Gregor, 25, died as a result of wounds he sustained after an incident at Don Savinos bar in Waldorf almost two weeks ago. Gregor died Oct. 27 in Prince Georges Hospital Center, according to Charles County police reports. Justin E. Ferrall, 30, of Hollywood and Brian A. Hickman, 28, of Mechanicsville, have both been charged with firstand second-degree assault against Gregor as well as disorderly conduct. Charging documents filed against the two men in Charles County District Court allege that at about 2 a.m. Oct. 25, a fight broke out between the two suspects and Gregor in the Don Savinos parking lot. Charging documents state that Ferrall approached Gregor whereupon an argument began between the two men, with Ferrall striking Gregor twice in the face. Police have said they do not yet know what precipitated the argument that led to the fight. To put it quite simply we dont know, said Diane Richardson, spokeswoman for the Charles County Sheriffs Office. Were trying to piece together what happened at the incident. Police believe no weapons were used during the assault, Richardson said. Investigators are seeking help from the community or other witnesses who may have information about the alleged assault. They want people to come forward and shed some light on what transpired before, during and after the attack, Richardson said. Ferrall allegedly struck Gregor, the victim, who then went to the middle of the parking lot where Hickman approached him and allegedly struck him in the face multiple times. Gregor fell, charging documents state, and hit his head on the pavement; he was knocked unconscious. Gregor was f lown by medical helicopter to Prince Georges Hospital Center in Cheverly with severe trauma to the head and face, police reports read, where he died two days later. Police stated in court papers that four witnesses at Don Savinos who saw the alleged assault all told the same version of the story. Both Hickman and Ferrall were taken into custody following the incident after f leeing from the scene, Richardson said. Ferrall was found in a truck, while Hickman was arrested on Pierce Road a short distance from the altercation, she said.

to running his shop, making for what has often amounted to 60 hours a week at each job. Still it was easy to see that with Shin, this was one of the best parts of his day, and today he was roasting espresso beans. This is my own blend, he said, I roast the espresso just like the Italians do. By this he meant his goal would always be to achieve rich caramel-colored shots with a sweet aftertaste, like those first made famous in Italy. As for the roaster itself, Shin laughed when he said, most people think its a grinder. Most people dont know what it is, so I have to explain it to them, he said, emptying the darkened beans from the pan of the roaster to cool. The equipment itself is impressive, a Toper 10 kilo roaster from Turkey with a cast iron drum, which Shin kicks into gear as often as two or three times a week in order to keep his shop stocked with freshly roasted beans. Since opening in 2003, Shin said he aimed to bring a gourmet touch to the world of small town coffee houses, starting with the coffee, which they roast on-site each week. Theyve extended the home-roasting ethos even to the turkey and roast beef they make their sandwiches with. Shin said the homegrown apPhoto By Andrea Shiell Richard Shin stands next to his shops roaster preparing beans at the Cof- proach has not stopped there.

has also partnered with local bread gurus Beau and Shari Walker to bring a full service bakery on-site, offering no fluff, all flavor artisan breads and pastries. The Walkers said their involvement with Shins shop happened after they had enjoyed a great deal of success selling their wares at the Farmers Market. We took our dining room apart and reassembled it as a bakery, said Shari Walker as she explained their humble beginnings. We would show up in St. Marys City and by the third week, there were ten or twelve cars parked and waiting for us to set up, she said, adding that they never did get around to setting up an actual table for their product, since people would just mob their car to buy the bread when they arrived. Shin said his biggest concern during the economic crisis would be to stay afloat and diversify as much as possible. Mountain Mudd went out of business, Chicken Coop went out of businessI think a lot of small businesses are struggling. I know we are. But thats why were doing thisthis is a close-knit coffee shop, he said, as he warmly greeted yet another customer by their first name. Wed like to extend that to the rest of the community.

I refuse to accept no interest. Greer cited the example of a wheelchairbound employee who is a world-class expert in photogrammetrics, a superstar. Thats what were missing out on. Meade noted that NAVAIR has instituted measures to attract and retain IWTD. They include three sign language interpreters at Pax for the deaf and a video center that makes the interpreters available to other sites around the country. NAVAIRs Equal Employment Opportunity office also is conducting an AIRSpeed Black Belt quality improvement project to streamline the process of creating accommodations that allow disabled people to function effectively in the workplace, such as accessible computers and bathroom facilities. Lack of accommodations should never be an excuse for not hiring a disabled person, Meade said. We will figure out a way to do the accommodation, he said. Its a must-do not a nice-to-do.

I was at Esperanza at a quarter to seven and there was a big crowd outside, but then it died down some, she said, adding that she had seen a heavy amount of activity at other polling sites as well. Later that night, as the results came flooding in, Crosby remarked excitedly, Im shaking, this has been a nail-biter! Crosby scored a decisive victory among voters who visited the polls on Tuesday, winning 17,008 votes to Kesslers 16,422, nabbing 50.7 percent of the vote, but she was reluctant to declare an absolute victory until the absentee ballots were counted. There are 3,227 absentee ballots that havent been counted yet, she said, so its really a toss-up in a waybut I hope I hold on to the lead. As for her campaign, Crosby said it had been a long journey, but she was optimistic about the future, as she had been optimistic during the course of her campaign. Its hard to unseat an incumbent, she said, but Ive put everything Ive got in itso if I win I want to move forward with a good, happy Board of Education.

Kessler said he had seen a lot of people at his own polling place that morning. I got in line at a quarter after six at Great Mills High School and stood out there in the rain like everyone else, he said, adding that he had never seen that many people waiting to vote before. I think everybody sees this as a watershed general election, so Im assuming theyll also cast their votes for the local elections, too, he said, I just hope for a positive outcome once the polls close, to keep the current board together to keep doing great things in St. Marys County. Crosby sounded hyper when asked about her activities on Tuesday afternoon. First I voted at Esperanza, she said, adding that she had arrived at her polling place early, and from there she had been catapulted across the county to Benjamin Banneker Elementary, Margaret Brent Middle School, and Lettie Marshall Dent later that day. Crosbys dizzying campaigning established her as a formidable contender this year, and she admitted she had been steadfast in her efforts to unseat Kessler. Everywhere I go Im campaigning, she exclaimed, adding that family members,

Scott was part of a panel of three experts who addressed the seminar. The others were Commissioner Christine Griffin of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Marion Vessels, Director of the Disability and Business Technical Assistance Center, Mid-Atlantic Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Center. NAVAIR Commander Vice Adm. David Venlet also attended, but as an audience member there to learn rather than to speak. All panelists emphasized the importance of altering perceptions of the kind of work that is suitable for people with disabilities. Why do you think your job is so special that someone with a disability couldnt do it? asked Griffin, who uses a wheelchair. We have to challenge their assumptions. The seminar was moderated by Ed Greer and Jim Meade, Chair and Co-chair respectively of NAVAIRs Individuals with Disabilities Barrier Removal Team. Following the panelists initial remarks, Greer told the audience, The common thread I heard was culture, culture, culture. Greer, Executive Director of the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division and Assistant Commander of Test & Evaluation, said that NAVAIR has steadily increased its hiring of individuals with targeted disabilities (IWTD), increasing from only one Photo Credit: U.S. Navy photo Liz Goetee in 2004 to 17 in 2008.

Marines To Get More Power From Heavy Lifting Engines

NAVAL Air Systems Command Press Release
Planned upgrades to the CH-53D Sea Stallion and CH-53E Super Stallion engines will give pilots more power on hot temperature and high altitude flights, and Marine Heavy Lift squadrons the ability to carry more equipment, weapons, supplies and personnel further. With a few engine upgrades already in test at Patuxent River Naval Air Stations Helicopter Test and Evaluation Squadron 21, fleet operators will soon have an increased payload capability due to increased power on the CH-53D and CH-53E engines. What we are doing is actually very simple. Were outfitting the Sea Stallion and Super Stallions engines to run hotter which results in more power, said Stoney MacAdams, H-53 Assistant Deputy Program Manager. More power equals heavier loads carried further which equals more options and supportability for our troops on the ground. The CH-53D and CH-53E new engine testing is proceeding along; with both aircraft having completed functional check flights and beginning engine specific performance testing, said Maj. Jack Perrin, H-53 Platform Coordinator for Helicopter Test and Evaluation Squadron 21, Patuxent River, Md. These new engines for the 53D and E will surely improve the performance of the aircraft and assist the war fighter in completion of their mission in the global war on terror around the world. The two General Electric T64-GE-413 turboshaft engines used on each CH-53D, which has been in-service since 1969 carrying much needed supplies, equipment and personnel from ships to inland battle zones, will receive an upgraded fuel control along other key improvements including erosion-resistant titanium nitride compressor airfoils and increaseddurability hot section components. With the upgraded engine fuel control and other changes the T64-GE-413 engine will be transformed into the more powerful T64-GE-416 engine, said MacAdams. The T64-GE-416 is currently used on the CH53E Super Stallion, which has supported Marine Corps troops in Afghanistan and Iraq and continues supporting the global war on terror. The CH-53Es T64-GE-416 engines will also receive upgraded fuel controls, along with titanium nitride compressor airfoils and improved hot section components. The changes will turn T64-GE-416 engines into the more powerful T64-GE-419 engine. With the extra lifting power delivered from these upgraded engines, the Super Stallion will continue to deliver equipment and heavy weapons such as M198 howitzers and Humvees as well as perform troop insertions, said MacAdams. The Navys MH-53E Sea Dragon helicopter, a CH-53E derivative, already operates with three T64-GE-419 turboshaft engines for its primary mine countermeasures missions.

New Business To Brighten The Holidays

Andrea Shiell Staff Writer Kenny Norleen said he installs fiberglass pools for a living, heading up his familys business, Norco Pools in Mechanicsville since 2001. He said that his main motivation for starting up a professional Christmas decorating business was to supplement his pool installation operation during the slower winter months, much like the companys founder, Blake Smith, did in 1986 when he started Christmas Dcor in Lubbock, Texas to give his landscaping crews work during the winter. The way we got involved was the pools had a slowdown in November and Decemberso we just thought it would be a good idea to have something else to do then, said Norleen. Founded to fill an offseason void and provide year-round work for employees, Christmas Decor sprung into existence in 1986 and has emerged as the companys highest profit generator, accounting for almost half its profits. What started as a side business quickly grew into a franchise with 375 locations operating in 48 states and Canada, professionally decorating homes and businesses for over 50,000 customers each season, with plans to open locations in more than 100 new markets through franchise expansion in selective communities around the country, one of which is here in St. Marys County. Though there is a fair amount of prestige with a company that was named one of the Top Ten Home Improvement Franchises for 2008 by Entrepreneur Magazine and AOL Small Business, boasting a NiteTime Dcor franchise opportunity, a growing 30-unit concept built on exterior landscape lighting services, Norleen said that his primary focus this season would be to find someones house to decorate for free. This is our first year so were just trying to get the word out, said Norleen, adding that in addition to his residential and commercial customers, he is looking for someone to participate in the companys Decorated Family program. We try to find a soldier in our community to go in and decorate for free, he explained, adding that as of yet, the company has not found anyone to honor for their first year in the county. I have not received any applications, he said. Norleen said that any family wishing to participate in the program should email a letter of nomination to norcopools@md.metrocrast.net. In the meantime, Norleen said his franchise would be stocking enough Christmas lights and decorations to brighten more than 50 homes and businesses to start with. Norleen said he is now training the rest of his employees to begin brightening up the holidays, and with the fall chill in the air and the promise of returning soldiers to the area, Norleen said the Decorated Family program would be an important way of giving back.
