Thanks to the Linemen — Not the Utility

Dear Bay Weekly:
In reply to your editorial about Stockholm Syndrome [Vol. XI, No. 40: Oct. 2]: I also saw the hand-painted sign that said “Thanks BGE.” What you did not realize was that the sign was up days before power was restored. It was not meant for the company with all of their billions of dollars. Many of us without power and water for nearly a week agreed with the sign and also thanked them. But we thanked the men who actually put the hard work in and took the dangerous job of climbing the poles and reconnecting our power grid.

The company must do something about the long outages that cost many people and companies more than can be listed here, although the crews in the bucket trucks do not deserve criticism, they deserve our thanks and appreciation.

Thanks for producing another great edition,

Your loyal reader,
— Shawn Huff, Chesapeake Beach

Following in the Footsteps of Heroes from Hamer to King

Dear Bay Weekly:
Thank you for covering the Fannie Lou Hamer reception [Dock of the Bay, Vol. XI, No. 41: Oct. 9] that honored six outstanding women in our community and the legacy of the late feminist and civil rights activist Mrs. Hamer. The article written by Kimberly Goode captured the spirit of Mrs. Hamer and the reception wonderfully. We were pleased to have joining us that evening Anne Arundel County Executive Janet Owens, Councilwoman Cathy Vitale, Del. Michael Busch, Del. Mary Ann Love, Sheriff George Johnson, Alderwomen Cynthia Carter and Classie Hoyle and the keynote speaker, Judge Rodney Warren.

The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Awards Committee Inc. hosts two major events a year: the Fannie Lou Hamer Reception and the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Awards Dinner. In January, the awards dinner will be held at the La Fontaine Bleu in Glen Burnie. We invite your readers to join us on January 15 as we celebrate the birthday of the foremost human rights activist that the nation has ever produced, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Again, kudos to Bay Weekly for covering events that are important to the entire community. We look forward to seeing you on January 15. Thank you for all that you do to make our county a great place to live and work.

— Carl O. Snowden, Chair, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Awards
Dinner Committee: Annapolis

Seen Chessie Lately?

Dear Bay Weekly:
My son is doing research on Chessie the sea monster and has read that Bill Burton has archived 78 reports of sightings … and we hope he could pass on some info. Please let me know if you could be of help.

— Michelle Cappa, [email protected]

Editor’s note: If you’ve seen Chessie, add your sightings to this student’s report.

Department of Corrections
The review of The Heiress at Bowie Community Theatre [Vol. XI, No. 42: Oct. 16] misprinted the name of the lead actress in paragraph two. The Bowie actress rivaling Olivia DeHavilland’s 1949 Academy-Award-winning performance is Rebecca Ellis.
