On Thursday May 22nd 2014 I was in an auto accident at the exit of Route 50 and Dominion Rd, Burger King was on my left and the Exxon was on my right. We were facing Main St. towards the Walgreens.

This happened right before Memorial Weekend. I am hoping there are witnesses out there who would be willing to come forward. I was driving a Silver Hyundai Sonata and the other vehicle was a Yellow GMC Sierra pickup truck. Contact: Patricia Saienni 302-569-8678 or by Email at

Library Adds Cooking Class to Summer Schedule:

The Kent Island Branch of Queen Anne’s County Library welcomes KIHS teacher Rob Glass, who will present a monthly "Cooking for Kids: Easy No-Heat Recipes for Kids and Parents" series for ages 6-16. Parents are also welcome.

At the first class, on Tuesday, July 15 at 10:30 a.m., participants can beat the heat and learn to make a favorite summer treat. The secret to this ice cream is that it uses just two ingredients: Nutella and banana! Students will learn how to make a dessert the whole family will love, and the whole family can make together. Each will get a sample and the recipe at the end of the presentation. Children and teens can register by calling (410) 643-8161. Supplies will be provided.

The next class in the series will take place on Tuesday, August 12 at 10:30 a.m. Glass was recently accepted to be a food ambassador for Jamie Oliver's "Food Revolution." Glass said, “The idea is to get out in the community and promote healthy eating habits and educate children on where their food comes from and how to create simple, easy meals that are healthy and use real ingredients to help combat obesity and food illiteracy in our community.”

The library is located at 200 Library Circle in Stevensville. For more information, contact the library at (410) 643-8161 or visit

June & July, 2014

Camp Introduces Five Art Forms in Five Days!

Does your child love to create art? Are you are looking for a summer art camp but are not sure what medium your child likes best, painting, drawing, sculpture? Well, look no further. For the first time ever, Kent Island Federation of Arts will offer a summer camp for children ages eight years old and up exploring five different art mediumst. Working with a different local artist each day, children will create a piece of art in painting, metalsmithing, collage, sculpture and gelatin printmaking. Children will take home a new project every day.

The camps will run for three weeks this summer, June 23-27, July 14-18, and August 4-8 from 9am to 12pm at 405 Main Street, Stevensville. Cost: KIFA members $110; Non-Members $125 (second sibling $10 discount). All supplies and materials are included. On Monday the kids will create a driftwood sculpture with Tom Yates, using hand tools and recycled materials. Tuesday is an introduction to Metalsmithing with Melissa Kay-Steves, who will teach kids how to drill, stamp, texture and patina metal to create a bracelet. Wednesday, Vicki Cearfoss will demonstrate how to create a collaged replica of a Canadian goose, using cut paper, micron pens, scissors, and quick glue techniques. On Thursday, Ric Conn will introduce kids to Gouache painting, an old medium that very few contemporary artists use, for painting birds. On Friday, Sandy Sapienza will show kids how to design with a gelatin base paint and print onto paper or fabric. Students will complete several small prints in various colors which may be framed, or adhered onto greeting cards or T-shirts.

The instructors are very excited to share their mediums with the students and hope that this new program will take off and lead to more inspiring camps and year round classes at KIFA. “As a parent, you are always looking for that one thing that your child is going to not only love, but be good at,” said Melissa Kay-Steves, KIFA artist and instructor. “This is a fabulous opportunity for children to get a taste of five completely different forms of art and not only come home with a finished project each day, but a better understanding of what they like.” Space is limited, so sign up online now using PayPal at or walk in at 405 Main St. Gallery Hours: Tuesday thru Friday 10 am -4 pm, Sat 1- 4pm.

KIFA is always looking for great instructors to teach a summer camp, class or workshop. For more information on how to become a KIFA member or instructor visit their website and

Our youth and young adults are being offered a drug and alcohol educational experience to change their behavior and attitudes. The RESET program is an alternative sentencing option for the judicial system. Parents may also enroll their teenagers without an arrest taking place allowing RESET as an early intervention.

RESET serves 14 to 24 year olds who have fallen victim to drug and alcohol use or are “at risk”. The program serves as an alternative sentencing option or condition of probation by the Courts. RESET is an early intervention education program involving many agencies, volunteers, professionals and facilities. The program serves the upper shore counties.

The program is presented on three Friday nights and one Saturday night, utilizing the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office, Chester River Hospital, Queen Anne’s Circuit Courthouse and the Queen Anne’s County Detention Center. Classes begin promptly at 5:45 pm and end at 9:00 pm. The next classes begin May 20th and conclude on June 3rd.
