FeBREWaryLove is in the air and on tap in Maryland. In celebration of FeBREWary: Maryland Craft Beer Lovers Month, breweries are releasing new seasonal, love-themed craft beers, offering food pairings, hosting special events and partnering with local businesses to provide safe lodging and transportation.

“Maryland welcomes you to fall in love with a new style of beer or cozy up to an old local favorite,” said Liz Fitzsimmons, executive director, Maryland Office of Tourism. “With more than 50 craft breweries, FeBREWary is the perfect opportunity to plan a weekend getaway or venture to a Maryland destination you’ve yet to explore.”

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and what better way to treat your sweet tooth than with a decadent dessert beer. Choose from many new local flavors, such as Antietam Brewery’s Cupid’s Truffle chocolate raspberry stout, Duclaw Brewing Company’s Quick Start My Heart strawberry milk stout or Growlers of Gaithersburg’s chocolate pretzel with salted caramel stout. Stop by Eastern Shore Brewing Company for a pink-colored pilsner brewed with rose petals or Assawoman Bay Brewing Company for the Red Head Rye, inspired by the brewer’s red-headed wife. Not feeling the romance? Give Fin City Brewing Company’s Bitter Breakup IPA a try.

Celebrate the marriage of food and craft beer with a variety of appetizing options. Several breweries and brewpubs are playing match-maker and offering unique savory pairings. Tantalize your taste buds with course pairings at Ruddy Duck Brewery and Grill or Mully’s Brewery; head straight to dessert pairings at Scorpion Brewing or Red Shedman Farm Brewery; or follow along the Craft Beer and Food Pairing Trail. Don’t forget to indulge in oysters, a notorious aphrodisiac, paired nicely with Flying Dog Brewery’s Pearl Necklace Chesapeake oyster stout.

Brewers are teaming up to celebrate FeBREWary all month long with special events and promotions. For the ultimate craft beer enthusiast, quench your thirst at “Love Thy Beer: Winter Warmer Showcase” presented by the Brewers Association of Maryland.  The one-day festival, held February 12 in Silver Spring, features more than a dozen Maryland craft breweries.  Find your passion by the pint at “Shore Craft Beer Fest: Love on Tap,” on February 20 in Ocean City.

AAMC receives $1.25M grant from Bristol-Meyers Squibb Foundationhttp://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/02/10/aamc-receives-1-25m-grant-from-bristol-meyers-squibb-foundation/ http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/02/10/aamc-receives-1-25m-grant-from-bristol-meyers-squibb-foundation/#respond Wed, 10 Feb 2016 16:33:58 +0000 http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/?p=104004 Anne Arundel Medical CenterTo mark National Cancer Prevention Month, the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation has announced eight grants totaling nearly $11.5 million that will help make lung and skin cancer screening programs, care and patient support more accessible to underserved populations. The goal is to develop, validate and sustain models that deliver equitable and optimal outcomes.

The grants were awarded through the Foundation’s Bridging Cancer Care™and Specialty Care for Vulnerable Populations initiatives. Bridging Cancer Carefocuses on pilot projects in select southeastern U.S. states with the highest lung cancer burden to advance evidence-based strategies to improve lung cancer screening and assist patients diagnosed with lung cancer access and navigate cancer care and community-based supportive services. Specialty Care for Vulnerable Populations supports care collaborations among primary care and specialty care providers and patient engagement and social support in order to improve the quality of specialty care services for underserved populations living with lung cancer, skin cancer or HIV.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the U.S., with a mortality rate higher than any other cancer, primarily because the cancer is not detected or treated at an early stage.

“Obstacles to screening, especially for minority and underserved populations, often result in patients receiving a late-stage diagnosis, which dramatically reduces their chances for survival,” says John Damonti, president, Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation. “We are pleased to engage our partners to develop innovative programs that will improve the health outcomes of underserved patient populations facing lung cancer, to help prevent skin cancer among migrant worker populations and to advocate for system-wide change to remove barriers to specialty care.” Among the recipients was Anne Arundel Medical Center!

Anne Arundel Medical Center received a three-year, $1.25 million grant to replicate and expand the medical center’s successful Rapid Access Chest and Lung Assessment Program, which reduced the time from lung cancer screening to diagnosis from as much as four months for outpatients to an average of 16 days by quickly identifying, engaging and managing patients through an increased centralization of care and a thoracic nurse navigator. The program will focus on low-income and racial minority patients who are at risk for or diagnosed with lung cancer in Maryland’s Anne Arundel, Calvert and Prince George counties.

“While Anne Arundel Medical Center’s DeCesaris Cancer Institute’s lung screening and thoracic oncology programs have continued to expand over the past five years, our successes have been more limited among vulnerable, lower-income and minority populations,” says Stephen Cattaneo, MD, medical director of Thoracic Oncology at Anne Arundel Medical Center. “The grant from the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation will allow us the opportunity to better reach and inform these at-risk patients in our area and surrounding Maryland counties about the need for lung cancer screening while providing desperately needed education and resources for smoking cessation.”

333 Coffeehouse presents Andrew McKnighthttp://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/02/10/333-coffeehouse-presents-andrew-mcknight/ http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/02/10/333-coffeehouse-presents-andrew-mcknight/#comments Wed, 10 Feb 2016 13:21:02 +0000 http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/?p=104002

333coffeehouseThe 333 Coffeehouse, Annapolis’ monthly listening space for folk and acoustic music, is pleased to present Andrew McKnight.

Admission: $12 (students, senior citizens and members $10).

“Stretching across the landscape of American folk music is a highway paved by Guthrie and Dylan… now Virginia native Andrew McKnight takes his turn smoothing down the blacktop” (Performing Songwriter)

“With a voice reminiscent of Don McLean, McKnight traverses from old-time Appalachian tunes to contemporary folk and blues, all backed up by his dead-on guitar playing” – The Boston Globe

Since permanently leaving his corporate environmental engineering career in 1996, award-winning folk/Americana artist Andrew McKnight’s musical journey has traced nearly a million miles of blue highways, and earned him a wealth of critical acclaim and enthusiastic fans for his captivating performances and seven recordings. Andrew’s powerful and entertaining show is like one man theatre, delivered with warmth and down-home comfort. His finely crafted songs are woven together with humorous stories and poetic drama, while the musical soundscape traverses influences from Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, rustic folk, and even a little fancy flatpicking on a Carter Family tune. While his skillful guitar work provides a tasteful foundation, the touches of native American cedar flute, resonator guitar, djembe (African hand drum) and even mandolin add delightful and mesmerizing embellishments to the show.

Andrew McKnight has performed at many prestigious venues like the Kennedy Center, the International Storytelling Center and the Atlanta Olympics, has been part of the Rocky Mountain, South Florida, Boston and Delmarva Folk Festival lineups, and a guest on NPR’s “Art of the Song” and “River City Folk” shows. He has released several albums, the most recent being One Virginia Night, a live performance CD and DVD recorded with his band Beyond Borders.

Last night, the Housing Authority of the City of Annapolis announced a new Executive Director and a new Director of Public Safety to help turn around the beleaguered agency.  However, Safety Director, Derek Matthews, was dismissed from his job at the Department of Homeland Security where he was the Regional Director for the Federal Protective Service when a scheme was uncovered to defraud the government. Matthews was convicted of bribery and served 15 months for his role in a larger scheme to defraud the US Government by accepting payments from a contractor in return for assistance in securing government contracts.

Last night, members of the City Council lauded the choice of Matthews who currently runs a consulting firm and previously was a Prince George’s County Sheriff. Ward 3 Alderwoman, Rhonda Pindell-Charles said, “I am quite impressed with Mr. Matthews and Mr. Colbert.” Ward 2 Alderman, Fred Paone recounted knowing Colbert as a child growing up in Annapolis and seemed pleased with his appointment.

It is unknown what vetting process was used prior to hiring Matthews or if the HACA Board was aware of the bribery conviction.  While a conviction should not be an immediate disqualification, it does merit additional information. During the Cohen administration, former City Transportation Director Richard Newell was discovered to have a criminal record. The Council determined that the offense was far enough removed from the present day, that it would not impede Newell’s job.  In fact, Newell went on to substantially turn the department around until he was terminated by the Pantelides administration.

According to court records, Matthews was sentenced in July of 2013, was released in October 2014, and served a one-year, supervised probation which ended in October 2015.  He was hired by HACA in February 2016.

HACA has been plagued with resignations and mismanagement. There are currently two vacant seats on the Board, and Mayor Pantelides has shown no urgency in making new appointments. The City has no control over HACA, but does appoint their Board. The former Executive Director abruptly resigned along with several key employees and Board members last fall. A replacement Executive Director was hired and resigned the day before she was scheduled to begin.
