Charity Director
Appeals Stop Order
By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer
The cease and desist order that shut
down the Southern Maryland Veterans
Association last month is still in affect
after the organizations director appealed
the decision of the Maryland Secretary
of State last week.
Daniel Timothy Brashear wanted to
have the cease and desist order lifted,
state officials said, but the hearing officer in the matter, the assistant secretary
of state, did not make a determination.
The hearing took place over two days,
March 9 and March 10, state officials
said and the record remained open for 10
days following the hearing.
The charity was still barred from accepting or solicitating donations, state
officials said.
The cease and desist order is still in
affect, a state official told The County
Times. Theres no decision thats been
made. Its still an ongoing matter.
Officials said there would likely be
several more weeks before the hearing
officer made a decision on whether to lift
the cease and desist order.
According to a press release from
Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh
both Brashear, the charitys founder, and
Norman Randolph McDonald, who up
until recently was in charge of collections, were named in the cease and desist
order.

Brashear has charged McDonald with


embezzling money from the charity.
The shut down of the charity was in response to multiple complaints, according
to state authorities, and an investigation
alleged that the organization was not assisting the housing needs of veterans as
was claimed in marketing materials.
Brashear said that at the hearing the
state brought out complaints against his
organization that were anonymous and
even said that state officials had presumed his guilt in public statements they
had made about his organization.
He said he did not believe that he had
been treated fairly and that the state
would likely keep the cease and desist
order in place.
I think theyre going to run it under
the status quo, Brashear said.
He also claimed that he sent the state
the list of veterans he had housed at their
shelter but the state was not satisfied
because he did send copies of their discharge papers to prove their service.
He said he would not release them because he wanted to protect veterans privacy, particularly regarding their medical information.
He also said accusations that they had
housed pedophiles was false, they had
housed one sex offender, Brashear said,
but that person was a veteran and had
been involved with an adult.

Calvert Memorial
Hospital Presents
New Patient Tower

By Crista Dockray
Staff Writer
A 43,500 square foot, three-story
expansion will be added near Calvert
Memorial Hospitals existing main
entrance.
Plans for the hospital were presented
to the County Commissioners Tuesday
at their general meeting.
According to a representative from
Calvert Memorial, the project has been
in the works for approximately two
years.
According to the presentation, there
will be an additional 10,300 square feet
of renovations and 16,500 square feet of
light renovations. This will total 70,300
square foot of renovations.
The light renovations will be the redesign of current rooms to change them
over from semi-private to fully private.
Representatives said they want the feel
of the hospital to stay coherent with the
rest of the new construction.
The heavy renovations will include 40
new private patient rooms, 20 on both
the second and third floor, and outpatient
services expansion and med staff/admin
reconstruction on the first floor.
The number of rooms will increase

Commissioners Corner
Armory Square

and Traffic

Governor Larry Hogan, recently announced the State Highway Administration


(SHA) project that widens the MD 2/4 road
in Prince Frederick from FoxRun Boulevard
to Commerce Lane. That project supports the
plans Calvert County has to enhance economic development under a project called
Armory Square.
Traffic studies are related to Armory
Square and included studying Intersections
from MD 2/4 at Fox Run to MD 402 (Dares
Beach Road) and along Dares Beach Road
through Armory Road to Fairground Road.
The following are excerpts from a Traffic
Analysis Impact Study:
A traffic analysis impact study indicated
that with the completion of the SHA project,
there will be three northbound through lanes
and a total of 561 vehicles per lane in the future traffic conditions. This is a 25% decrease
in the amount of traffic per through lane,
even with traffic growth and full build-out
of Armory Square, which results in greater
throughput along MD 2/4.
There will be three southbound through
lanes and a total of 696 vehicles per lane in
the future traffic conditions. This is a 19%
decrease in the amount of traffic per through
lane, even with traffic growth and full buildout of Armory Square, which results in greater throughput along MD 2/4.
Southbound traffic on MD 2/4 trying to get
onto Dares Beach Road currently only has
two opportunities. There is a single left turn
lane at Steeple Chase and there is a single left
turn lane at Dares Beach Road. Based on the

existing volumes, it appears that many motorists currently use Steeple Chase Drive to
avoid the MD 2/4 & MD 402 intersection.
The SHA project will result in a double
left turn from southbound MD 2/4 at Dares
Beach Road. Furthermore, the extension of
Fox Run Blvd to Fairground Road provides
an additional route for motorists to use to
get to Dares Beach Road without having to
go through the intersection of MD 2/4 at MD
402. Additionally, the new access road and
traffic signal to the south of Steeple Chase
Drive will provide an additional double left
turn lane. This would result in three double
left turn lanes on southbound MD 2/4 that
will connect to Dares Beach Road, as compared to the existing two single left turn lanes
that motorists can use to get to Dares Beach
Road.
The results of the Traffic Analysis Impact
Study indicate that all intersections will operate at acceptable conditions in the future
traffic conditions with the construction of
the MD 2/4 widening project by the SHA,
and with the additional improvements as proposed by Armory Square.
The efforts to actually make Amory Square
a reality continues to be another set of twists
and turns along a bumpy highway; but that is
a story for another time.

of sweets he ate while watching his favorite team, the Redskins. He loved talking to
anyone about his years as a Maryland State
Trooper. Upon his retirement, he took on
a new love and occupation as a waterman.
Steamed crabs every night; he said this is

The Calvert County Times

Some Commissioners May


Oppose Calvert Shores

Feature
Story
Obituaries

By Crista Dockray
Staff Writer
Calvert Shores, the proposed municipality
of the Chesapeake Ranch Estates, may face
some opposition from the Calvert County
Board of County Commissioners.
Opposition from the Board of County Commissioners could cause Calvert Shores not to
go to referendum, meaning the residents of
Chesapeake Ranch Estates would not be able
to vote on the matter come November 2016.
The issue with the proposed municipality
seems to lie with its boundaries.
The boundaries of Calvert Shores will include the entire community of the Chesapeake
Ranch Estates extending to Solomons Island
Road and Cove Point Road. With these boundaries, the Lusby Town Center and the Patuxent
Business Park are included.
According to County Commissioner Mike
Hart, to be a part of the municipality will mean
an increase in taxes for businesses and possibly the residents.
Hart is against this. Hart owns a business in
the Lusby Town Center.
I will oppose it [Calvert Shores] if it includes the businesses and if it increases the
money the Chesapeake Ranch Estates residents would have to pay, he said.
County Commissioner Pat Nutter told the
Calvert County Times that he is not crazy
about that at all, in regards to Patuxent Business Parks placement within Calvert Shores
and that he has heard a general opposition to
the municipality from business owners.
The owner of Ledo Pizza in Lusby, Jeff
Bagaruf, said he opposes Calvert Shores.
I think that Maryland in general does not
make it easy for small businesses, he said.
Every year it seems like a new tax comes up
and this will be another oneIm definitely
not for it.
Bagaruf says he does not feel it is his responsibility to pay for the problems that Chesapeake Ranch Estates is facing.
According to John Norris, the countys attorney, the only people that are allowed to vote
in the possible upcoming ballot are residents
that live within the boundaries that are also
registered voters. This means that if a business
owner has a business within the boundaries
but lives outside of them, he or she cannot vote
on the matter and will be subjected to the laws
of the municipality. This would include Bagaruf who lives in Huntingtown.
My first reaction is that it seems a little unfair, said Bagaruf.
Cathy Zumbrun, one of the key residents
behind the Calvert Shores movement, assured
the Calvert County Times that she has reached
out to the businesses but has received hardly
any response.
Zumbrun said they had invited businesses
to attend the Feb. 3 public meeting but no
businesses attended, they had done petitions
within the commercial district and received
few signatures from businesses, and they have
welcomed the businesses to submit written
comments, but received none.
We are assuming their silence is consent,
said Zumbrun.
Zumbrun said that the main reason they
wanted to change to a municipality was
simple.
Money is the primary reason, she told
The Calvert County Times. We started as a
summer community and now were a suburb
of [Patuxent River Naval Air Station] and sub-

urbs want amenities.


Those amenities include much-improved
infrastructure that the community has long
sought but not always paid for consistently.
Zumbrun said Chesapeake Ranch Estates
has long had a problem collecting all of the
road and maintenance and operations fees; being a municipality with the power to tax could
actually result in a reduction in those fees, she
said.
But that depends on an internal community
ballot coming this summer where residents
will have a chance to vote to agree to hand
over responsibility from the home owners association to the municipality.
Zumbrun said the tax increases on properties could amount to an extra $60 a year or five
cents per every $100 of assessed value.
That could mean the elimination of $400 in
homeowners fees, she said.
Moreover, she said, for decades community
residents had been paying out taxes for local
roads but not getting it back because of the private nature of the neighborhood but by becoming a municipality that would change.
We want taxes theyre already paying to
start coming back to us, Zumbrun said.
Commissioner President Evan Slaughenhoupt said he wants the residents to have a
chance to decide for themselves.
I have always been in the mindset that locals have the greater say in the matter, I dont
like the idea of an outside force dictating the
will on others, Slaughenhoupt said.
However, Slaughenhoupt said that he will
be looking closely at the report to make sure
all possible issues and outcomes have been
thought through.
I really, really hope that everyone down
there who is supportive of incorporating the
area into a town has their eyes open to all the
implications, said Slaughenhoupt. I personally think that the individuals that live there,
life will get more expensive for them, he
added.
County Commissioners now have 45 days
as of Tuesday, when The Calvert Shores Municipality Organizing Committee turned in
their report, to respond with questions and
concerns. After the Calvert Shores committee turns in their financial impact report
within 90 days, the County Commissioners
will vote whether or not to send the proposal
to referendum.
According to the Norris, this will happen
around the end of the summer.

report.
